On or about thirty (30) days following the Opening of Escrow, Seller shall cause the existing survey of the Property to be updated (or a new survey ordered) (the “Survey”) for the Property in accordance with the 2011 Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys jointly established and adopted by ALTA and NSPS and includes all subject parcels, and Table A optional survey responsibilities 1, 2, 3, 4, 6(b), 7(a), 7b(1), 7(c), 8, 9, 10(a) 11(a), 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19 and shall provide a statement indicating that any potential encroachments identified in the process of conducting the Survey are shown.

whereupon Escrow Holder shall immediately return the Deposit to Buyer, or (ii) elect to purchase the Property subject to all title exceptions other than exceptions which Seller has agreed to cure or remove.  If Seller fails to notify Buyer of its election not to cure objected items, it shall be deemed to have elected to cure, remove or release such items.  If Buyer fails to give timely notice electing either alternative (i) or alternative (ii), Buyer shall be deemed to have elected alternative (ii).  Notwithstanding any provision contained in this Agreement, in no event shall any financial liens or encumbrances securing payment of private debts affecting the Property (“Mortgage Liens”) (other than current taxes not yet due or payable and assessments and items created by Buyer) be deemed to be exceptions to title, and any Mortgage Liens shall, on or before the Closing Date, be paid in full by the Seller.  In the event Seller is not able to obtain any required consent for the holder of a Mortgage Lien prior to October 31, 2012 for a par payoff (with no prepayment amount or premium) of the Mortgage Lien, Seller shall notify Buyer of such failure prior to October 31, 2012.  Such failure shall not be a default hereunder by Seller, and either party may terminate this Agreement within ten (10) days of such notice from Seller without any further obligation or liability to the other party; however, in the event of such termination, Seller shall reimburse Buyer for the reasonable, out-of-pocket costs for all third-party reports incurred by Buyer, however, not to exceed $200,000 with respect to the transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the PSA, collectively to the extent that Buyer provides documentation reasonably satisfactory to Seller evidencing the payment of such costs, and the Deposit shall be returned to Buyer.  In addition, Seller shall cure all exceptions arising from instruments executed and recorded of record by Seller after the date of this Agreement except for instruments providing notices of any Leases, subordination and non-disturbance agreements with respect to Leases, landlord consents to tenant financing and other documents customarily executed by landlords with respect to tenant leases (collectively, “Recorded Lease Instruments”).  It shall also be a default if Seller fails to cure all exceptions arising from instruments executed and recorded of record by Seller after the date of this Agreement except for Recorded Lease Instruments and, in such event, this Agreement shall terminate and the Deposit shall be returned to Buyer notwithstanding the fact that the Due Diligence Period had expired.

 

Section 3.2.  Due Diligence Period; Deliveries by Seller; Buyer’s Termination Right. Buyer shall have until 5:00 P.M. (PST) on December 17, 2012 (the “Due Diligence Period”) within which to perform and conduct any and all of Buyer’s due diligence investigations, reviews, studies and inspections pertaining to the purchase of the Property, as Buyer may elect in its sole discretion.  Within five (5) days after the Opening of Escrow, Seller shall deliver or make available to Buyer for inspection, those documents, information and reports reasonably requested by Buyer in the diligence checklist attached hereto as Schedule I which are in Seller’s possession or control (including, copies of the most recent appraisals dating back no further than 2007 for the Property to the extent that they are in Seller’s possession) (collectively, the “Due Diligence Materials”).  The Due Diligence Materials do not (and are not required to) include (a) any documentation or information which Seller must keep confidential, (b) any items which are protected by any attorney-client privilege, (c) any purchase and escrow agreements and correspondence pertaining to Seller’s acquisition of the Property, (d) any documents pertaining to any potential acquisition of the Property by any past or prospective purchaser, (e) any reports prepared by Seller or any affiliate of Seller solely for the internal use of Seller, and (f) any proprietary information not relating to the physical or financial condition of the Property.  At Closing, Seller shall also execute the audit representation letter attached hereto as Schedule II and shall permit Buyer’s auditors to conduct an audit of Seller’s operations at the Property for the year of Closing and the two (2) years prior thereto subject to any qualifications required to make the representation letter true and correct.  Buyer shall conduct such audit within sixty (60) days of the Closing.

If Buyer fails to terminate this Agreement as provided in this Section 3.2, Buyer shall, subject to all of the other terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, be deemed to have approved all matters pertaining to or affecting the Property, and the Deposit shall thereafter be non-refundable, except upon Seller’s default hereunder, a failure of an express condition precedent to Buyer’s obligations set forth in Section 7.2 below or any other reason expressly set forth in this Agreement.

Section 3.5.  Return of Information Upon Termination.  If this Agreement is terminated by either party pursuant to the terms of this Agreement for any or no reason, then upon Seller’s request, Buyer shall: (a) return to Seller (or destroy, as directed by Seller and confirmed in writing by Buyer) all Due Diligence Materials delivered to Buyer or its advisors, agents, representatives, or any other persons or entities acting for or on behalf of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Receiving Party Representatives”); and (b) upon payment by Seller to Buyer of the actual costs paid by Buyer to third parties for such items or the maximum amount required by Section 3.1(c), deliver to Seller a copy of any report, study, data, analysis and survey that Buyer and/or the Receiving Party Representatives discover, commission or generate in connection with or resulting from their due diligence activities on the Property (collectively, the “Information”), provided such Information shall be provided to Seller without representation or warranty of any kind by Buyer.  The provisions of this Section 3.5 shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

Section 4.1.   MASTER LEASE SPACES; EARNOUT SPACES.  Seller and Buyer acknowledge and agree that some of the Property will not be one hundred percent (100%) leased and occupied by Tenants as of the Closing Date.  As of the date set forth on Exhibit A-2, the parties have identified certain information (including Tenants and their Annual Rent, common area maintenance charges (“CAM”), real estate taxes (“Taxes”) and insurance) on Exhibit A-2 for the following:  (a) space occupied (“Occupied Space”) by Tenant pursuant to Leases executed with third parties (“Occupied Leases”), (b) spaces

 

6



 

(“Master Lease Spaces”) to be initially leased by Seller pursuant to a master lease (collectively, “Master Leases”) (as shaded in yellow on Exhibit A-2), and (c) unoccupied spaces (collectively, the “Earnout Spaces”) that may be leased pursuant to Earnout Leases (as defined below) (as shaded in red in Exhibit A-2), and (d) vacant spaces (“Vacant Spaces”).  Such Exhibit (including the identification of space at the Property (and Rental Charges (as defined below), as applicable) as Occupied Spaces, Master Lease Spaces, Earnout Spaces or Vacant Spaces) shall be updated from time to time prior to Closing by Seller to reflect the leasing of space and/or vacancy thereof at the Property, and such Exhibits (including the final identification of space at the Property (and Rental Charges, as applicable) as Occupied Spaces, Master Lease Spaces, Earnout Spaces or Vacant Spaces) shall be finalized by Seller not later than three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date.  Seller shall, in Seller’s sole discretion, determine which spaces are Master Lease Spaces, Earnout Spaces or Vacant Spaces.  The parties acknowledge and agree that as a condition to Closing, Buyer requires the annual base rent payable under the Leases (including, without limitation, the Master Leases and the Leases set forth on Schedule IV that meet the Lease Completion Criteria as of December 31, 2012) for the Property and all of the Affiliate Properties to be at least $21,109,521 per year as of the Closing Date (“Annual Rent Requirement”); provided that no more than $575,482 of this Annual Rent Requirement shall be derived from Master Leases at the Property and the Affiliate Properties.  Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Seller shall have the sole right to lease the Master Lease Spaces and the Earnout Spaces pursuant to the terms of this Article IV and Section 15.1; provided that Buyer shall have the right to submit for Seller’s approval proposed leases for the Master Lease Spaces and the Earnout Spaces, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.   This Article IV shall survive the Closing for a period of thirty-six (36) months.

 

Section 4.2.  DEFINITIONS.

 

(i)  “Base Rent Divider” shall mean .077680.

 

(ii)  “Burn-Off Lease” shall mean: (a) a Lease with a tenant listed on Exhibit A-2 that relates to Master Lease Space, (b) a Lease entered into between Seller and a third party prior to Closing in accordance with the terms of this Agreement that relates to Master Lease Space; and (c) a Post Closing Burn-Off Lease (as defined below).

 

(iii)  “Earnout Lease” shall mean: (a) a Lease with a tenant listed on Exhibit A-2 that relates to Earnout Space, (b) a Lease entered into between Seller and a third party prior to Closing in accordance with the terms of this Agreement that relates to Earnout Space; and (c) a Post Closing Earnout Lease (as defined below).

 

(iv)  “Earnout Payments” shall mean the payment(s) of a portion of the Purchase Price to be made by Buyer after Closing to Seller as set forth below in Section 4.2 with respect to Earnout Space, if any, that may not be funded at the time of Closing.  The Earnout Payments for each portion of the Earnout Space that is leased subsequent to Closing shall equal the total base rent payable by the tenant under the new lease for the Earnout Space for the initial twelve (12) months commencing when full base rent under such lease is payable (i.e., not taking into account free rent or discounted rent at the inception of the term of the lease, if any), as adjusted for any Rent Deficiency for such 12-month period, divided by the Base Rent Divider.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:  Subsequent to Closing, Seller leases a 4,000 square foot portion of the Earnout Space.  The base rent payable under such lease during the

 

7



 

initial twelve (12) months after the full base rent under such lease is payable is $120,000.00, and such lease is a so called “triple-net” lease where the tenant pays its pro-rata share of CAM, Taxes and insurance.  When the tenant under the lease becomes a Rent Paying Tenant (as defined below), the Earnout Payment with respect to that portion of the Earnout Space shall be $1,544,799.18 (i.e. $120,000 divided by .077680).

 

FOR ANOTHER EXAMPLE:  Subsequent to Closing, Seller leases a 4,000 square foot portion of the Earnout Space.  The base rent payable under such lease during the initial twelve (12) months after the full base rent under such lease is payable is $120,000.00, but a Rent Deficiency exists under such lease in the amount of $10,000.00 per year.  When tenant under the lease becomes a Rent Paying Tenant, then the Earnout Payment with respect to that portion of the Earnout Space shall be $1,416,065.91 (i.e., $120,000.00 less $10,000.00, divided by .077680).

 

(v)  “Earnout Period” means the period of time that commences as of the Closing Date and ends thirty-six (36) months thereafter.

 

(vi)  “Estimated Earnout Payment Amount” shall mean the amount calculated by dividing the annual scheduled base rent less the scheduled Rent Deficiency, if any, as such amounts are set forth on the final Exhibit A-2 for any Earnout Space for the term of the proposed Earnout Lease by the Base Rent Divider.

 

(vii)  “Lease Completion Criteria” shall mean:

 

(A)          with respect to any Earnout Lease for an Earnout Space or Burn-Off Lease for a Master Lease Space that is not a ground lease, that: (a) the tenant thereunder (1) is in possession of its premises and is open for business, (2) has commenced paying base rent and its share of CAM, Taxes and insurance in accordance with the terms of its lease (collectively, “Rental Charges”) or, with respect to any of the Leases listed on Schedule IV attached hereto, if the applicable lease provides for a period after occupancy by tenant during which the tenant is not required to pay full Rental Charges, Seller has agreed to pay to Buyer, or deduct from any amount payable to Seller by Buyer with respect to such Lease, as applicable, an amount equal to the Rental Charges not payable by the Tenant during such period and the date for rent commencement for such tenant can be specifically determined; and (3) has executed and delivered a commencement date agreement or certificate, and “clean” estoppel certificate certifying that all obligations to be performed by landlord under its lease prior to the commencement date have been performed except minor punch-list items; (b) a final certificate of occupancy (or similar certificate) has been issued for its premises by the applicable governmental authorities; (c) the applicable contractor has provided lien waivers/releases, or Seller has escrowed with the Title Company 125% of the amount of any amount in dispute or such other amount required by Title Company to issue its extended coverage endorsement insuring over mechanic’s liens; (d) Seller provides written confirmation that all lease commissions owing with respect to the initial term of the lease for such space have been paid in full by Seller or that an

 

8



 

amount adequate to pay such claimed commissions shall has been escrowed; (e) if applicable, the Title Company is prepared to issue a date-down endorsement of the title policy increasing the amount of coverage by the Earnout Payment due with respect to the lease for such space; and (f) Seller has paid to Buyer such amount as is necessary to reconcile and prorate, as of the due date of the Earnout Payment or the date the Master Lease Space shall be removed from the Master Lease Obligations, each as applicable, the Rental Charges; and

 

(B)          with respect to any Burn-Off Lease for a Master Lease Space that is a ground lease set forth on Schedule IV, that: (a) the tenant thereunder is in possession of its premises, (b) the actual date on which such tenant must commence paying rent can be specifically determined (the “Ground Lease Rent Payment Commencement Date”), (c) Seller has agreed to pay to Buyer, or deduct from any amount payable to Seller by Buyer with respect to the applicable ground lease, an amount equal to the applicable period prior to the Ground Lease Rent Payment Commencement Date; and (d) the tenant has executed and delivered “clean” estoppel certificate certifying that all obligations to be performed by landlord under its lease prior to the commencement date have been performed.

 

(viii)  “Rent Deficiency” shall mean, with respect to an Earnout Space, the amount, if any, by which the annual amount to be paid by a tenant in an Earnout Space as a contribution to CAM, Taxes and insurance (i.e. “triple net” charges only) is less than that tenant’s proportionate share of such items (after adjustment for contributions made by major tenants and the effect of any “opening and operating” clause) based on a fraction, the numerator of which is the square footage leased by the tenant and the denominator of which is the square footage leased by all tenants of the Property; provided, however, the parties agree that any such CAM, Taxes and insurance charge shall be appropriately accounted for based on other similar tenants within the same zone of similar size and use.

 

(ix)  “Rent Paying Tenant” means a tenant of any Earnout Space or Master Lease Space, as applicable, but only after the Lease Completion Criteria have been satisfied by the express terms of the Earnout Lease or Burn-Off Lease or have been deemed to have been satisfied by waiver by Buyer.

 

Section 4.3.  MASTER LEASE SPACE.

 

(a)  In order to supplement the Occupied Leases to meet the Annual Rent Requirement as of the Closing Date, for a period of thirty-six (36) months following the Closing Date (“Master Lease Period”), Seller shall be required to pay to Buyer, on a monthly basis, the Rental Charges as set forth on Exhibit A-2 for those Master Lease Spaces until the date a tenant of such Master Lease Space (each, a “Burn-Off Lease Tenant”) becomes a Rent Paying Tenant.  The foregoing payment obligations of Seller shall hereinafter be referred to as the “Master Lease Obligations”.

 

(b)  During the Master Lease Period, Seller shall have the right to enter the Master Lease Space and the Property in which it is located to show the Master Lease Space to prospective

tenants, to place “for lease” signs on the Master Lease Space and to negotiate and present to Buyer for review and approval, and thereafter execution, one or more leases for the Master Lease Spaces (each, a “Post Closing Burn-Off Lease”).  Each Post Closing Burn-Off Lease which may be executed by Buyer after the Closing shall be documented on a lease form provided by Buyer for retail space at the Property (except in the event such prospective tenant had received Seller’s form of lease prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, in which event, Seller’s form of lease shall be acceptable to Buyer), shall be at not less than the base rent set forth for the space on Exhibit A-2 for such Master Lease Space, and the proposed tenant and the form and content of the proposed Post Closing Burn-Off Lease shall otherwise be subject to the leasing parameters set forth on Schedule III attached hereto (“Leasing Parameters”) and the approval of Buyer which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.  If Buyer rejects a proposed Post Closing Burn-Off Lease for a Master Lease Space, it shall specify the reasonable basis for the rejection and the changes, which if made, would cause Buyer to approve the Post Closing Burn-Off Lease.  If a proposed Post Closing Burn-Off Lease and/or proposed tenant for a Master Lease Space which meet the foregoing criteria are not approved by Buyer on or before ten (10) Business Days after the date submitted, or Buyer provides no reasonable basis for the rejection, such proposed tenant shall be deemed to be a Rent Paying Tenant for such Master Lease Space solely for purposes of determining the amounts to be released to Buyer and Seller pursuant to Section 4.3(c) below. If, during the Master Lease Period and for six (6) months thereafter, Buyer leases any space within the Property to the prospective tenant under a Burn-Off Lease which it previously rejected  pursuant to this provision, upon material terms substantially the same or more favorable to tenant as when originally proposed, the Burn-Off Lease previously submitted shall be deemed to have been approved as and when originally proposed and, to the extent necessary, payments shall be made between the Seller and Buyer.

 

(c)  Until the date a Burn-Off Lease Tenant satisfies the Lease Completion Criteria for such space, during the Master Lease Period, Seller shall collect and retain all rent, CAM, Taxes and insurance paid by the tenant of the Master Lease Space and shall have the right and obligation to perform those obligations of the “landlord” under each Burn-Off Lease to satisfy the Lease Completion Criteria. Upon the date a Burn-Off Lease Tenant becomes a Rent Paying Tenant or is deemed to be a Rent Paying Tenant pursuant to Section 4.3(b) above, the following shall occur:

 

(i)  if the Rental Charges payable under the Burn-Off Lease, which are acceptable to Buyer in its reasonable judgment, are less than the Rental Charges set forth for such Master Lease Space on Exhibit A-2 with respect to the Master Lease Period (“Shortfall Payment”), Buyer shall pay Seller the Shortfall Payment;

 

(ii)  the Seller shall be incrementally released from the Master Lease Obligations for such Master Lease Space; and

 

(iii)  such Master Lease Space shall be deemed terminated with respect to Seller’s obligation under the Master Lease Obligations.

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Buyer acknowledges that the Master Lease Obligation is not joint and several among the Seller and the Affiliate Sellers, but Seller and each Affiliate Seller is only obligated for such Master Lease Obligations for its applicable property.

 

(d)  During the Master Lease Period, Buyer shall pay to Seller any amounts paid to Buyer by Burn-Off Lease Tenants under an executed Burn-Off Lease prior to such Tenant becoming a Rent Paying Tenant.  Buyer will provide Seller with a monthly report of payments received and

 

10



 

amounts paid to Buyer with respect to such Burn-Off Lease Tenants and any information on communication or notices to or from such Burn-Off Lease Tenants.  Buyer shall provide a monthly invoice to the Seller of the amount due and payable under the Master Lease Obligations, which shall be paid within five (5) Business Days by Seller to Buyer in arrears based on whether or not a Burn-Off Lease Tenant has become a Rent Paying Tenant.

 

(e)  If Seller fails to pay Buyer the Master Lease Obligations required to be paid hereunder by Seller during the Master Lease Period when required, Buyer shall have the right to offset any uncontested amounts against all payments with respect to Preferred Units and Earnout Payments due to the Seller responsible for such Master Lease Obligations but only after written notice to Seller.

 

(f)  Upon the date a Burn-Off Lease Tenant becomes a Rent Paying Tenant, in no event shall Seller be responsible for any failure of that particular Burn-Off Lease Tenant to fail to pay its Rental Charges under a Burn-Off Lease or for any other default of a Burn-Off Lease Tenant, as Buyer acknowledges and agrees that such Master Lease Space shall be deemed terminated as it relates to the obligations of Seller under the Master Lease Obligations.

 

Section 4.4.  EARNOUT SPACE.

 

(a)  During the Earnout Period, Seller shall have the right to enter the Earnout Space and the Property in which it is located to show the Earnout Space to prospective tenants, to place “for lease” signs on the Earnout Space and to negotiate and present to Buyer for review and approval, and thereafter execution, one or more leases for the Earnout Spaces (each, a “Post Closing Earnout Lease”).  Each Post Closing Earnout Lease which may be executed by Buyer after the Closing shall be documented on a lease form provided by Buyer for retail space at the Property (except in the event such prospective tenant had received Seller’s form of lease prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, in which event, Seller’s form of lease shall be acceptable to Buyer), shall be at not less than seventy percent (70%) of the base rent set forth for the space on Exhibit A-2 for such Earnout Space, and the proposed tenant and the form and content of the proposed Post Closing Earnout Lease shall otherwise be subject to the Leasing Parameters and the approval of Buyer which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.  If Buyer rejects a proposed Post Closing Earnout Lease for an Earnout Space, it shall specify the reasonable basis for the rejection and the changes, which if made, would cause Buyer to approve the Post Closing Earnout Lease.  If a proposed Post Closing Earnout Lease and/or proposed tenant for a Earnout Space which meet the foregoing criteria are not approved by Buyer on or before ten (10) Business Days after the date submitted, or Buyer provides no reasonable basis for the rejection, such proposed tenant shall be deemed to be a Rent Paying Tenant for such Earnout Space solely for purposes of determining the Earnout Payment to be paid to Seller by Buyer pursuant to Section 4.4(b) below.  If, during the Earnout Period and for six (6) months thereafter, Buyer leases any space within the Property to the prospective tenant which it previously rejected upon material terms substantially the same or more favorable to tenant as originally submitted, the lease entered into shall be deemed to be an Earnout Lease (regardless of whether the Earnout Period has expired), and the Earnout Payment with respect to such Earnout Lease shall be due and payable immediately to the Seller.

 

(b)  Not later than ten (10) days after each portion of the Earnout Space satisfies the Lease Completion Criteria, Buyer shall pay to Seller an Earnout Payment with respect to such portion of the Earnout Space.  Earnout Payments will be disbursed in installments as and when each Earnout Space satisfies the Lease Completion Criteria.  The obligation of Buyer to pay the Earnout Payment shall terminate as of the end of the Earnout Period as to any remaining Earnout Space for

 

11



 

which an Earnout Lease has not been tendered to Buyer (and all of the Lease Completion Criteria fulfilled) on or before the expiration of the Earnout Period.  Until the date a tenant under an Earnout Lease satisfies the Lease Completion Criteria for such space, during the Earnout Period, Seller shall collect and retain all rent, CAM, Taxes and insurance paid by the tenant under the Earnout Lease and shall have the right and obligation to perform those obligations of the “landlord” under each Earnout Lease to satisfy the Lease Completion Criteria.  Except as set forth in Section 4.4(a) above, after the expiration of the Earnout Period, Seller waives any rights to any further Earnout Payments if the Lease Completion Criteria has not been fulfilled within the Earnout Period.

 

Section 4.5   TI/COMMISSION ESCROW.

 

On the Closing Date, Seller shall place in escrow, pursuant to a mutually agreed upon escrow agreement, an amount equal to the unpaid tenant improvement allowance and leasing commissions applicable to the Master Lease Spaces and the Earnout Spaces (which shall be set out in a final schedule to this Agreement) (“TI/Commission Escrow”).  Such amounts shall be released from the TI/Commission Escrow in order to pay such costs as necessary.  Seller shall submit a request to Buyer and escrow holder for the payment of such costs. Buyer shall have ten (10) Business Days to object to such request by providing written notice to Seller and the escrow holder, which notice shall state the amount being objected to by Buyer, the basis for the objection, and the actions, which if taken by Seller, would cause Buyer to approve the request.  Any amounts not specifically objected to by Buyer during such 10-Business Day period shall be deemed approved and shall be disbursed as requested by Seller.  At the expiration of the Master Lease Period and the Earnout Period, Buyer shall retain any amounts in the TI/Commission Escrow for any spaces which are not subject to an executed Post Closing Earnout Lease or Post Closing Burn-Off Lease.

 

Section 4.6   NEGOTIATIONS WITH PROSPECTIVE TENANTS AFTER CLOSING.

 

During the Master Lease Period and the Earnout Period, each party (the “Notifying Party”) shall have the right to notify the other party (the “Receiving Party”) if the Notifying Party makes a written offer to a prospective tenant for space in a Shopping Center.  Upon receipt of such written notice, the Receiving Party hereby covenants and agrees that it will not extend any offer with respect to leasing space in a Shopping Center to, or otherwise solicit a lease for space in a Shopping Center from, such prospective tenant for a period of six (6) months from the date of the written notice without the prior written consent of the Notifying Party.

Any amount collected by Buyer, or Seller after the Closing Date, from Tenants who owe rents for periods prior to the Closing Date, shall be applied (i) first, in payment of rents for the month the Closing occurs (the “Closing Month”), (ii) second, in the payments of rents for the month following the Closing Month, and (iii) to the payment of the months prior to the month of Closing (unless otherwise designated by such tenant).  Each such amount, less any costs of collection (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) reasonably allocable thereto, shall be adjusted and prorated as provided above, and the party who receives such amount shall promptly pay over to the other party the portion thereof to which it is so entitled.  At Closing, Seller shall deliver to Buyer a schedule of all such past due but uncollected rent and other sums owed by Tenants.  Buyer shall promptly remit to Seller any such rent or other sums paid by scheduled tenants.  Buyer shall bill tenants who owe rent for periods prior to the Closing on a monthly basis for six (6) consecutive months following the Closing Date.  For amounts due Seller not collected within twelve (12) months after Closing, Seller shall have the right to sue to collect same (without the right to evict tenant) and retain any amounts recovered in connection with such suits;

 

(b)  Except where and to the extent a tenant has the obligation to pay real property taxes and assessments directly to the appropriate governmental authority and not to Seller and such tenant is not in default under its Lease, all real property taxes and assessments as customarily apportioned for real property transactions in Clark County, Nevada; with Seller paying all taxes due and payable prior to Closing;

(e)  Buyer shall receive a credit from Seller at Closing for all of the credit balances in any tenant CAM, Tax or Insurance reserve account and Buyer shall be obligated to reconcile such reserve accounts for each tenant for the year 2012.  Seller shall not receive a credit from Buyer for any negative balance in such accounts unless and until collected from tenants following a reconciliation of such tenant’s accounts pursuant to Section 6.7.

 

Section 6.2.  Leasing Costs.  All leasing commissions, if any, for the current or initial lease terms for Leases entered into prior to the date hereof and the cost of any improvements and tenant allowances required to be made by the landlord in the space to which any such Lease relates have been paid by Seller, except for those costs and allowances set forth on Exhibit E attached hereto (the “Leasing Costs”).  Those amounts listed on Exhibit E hereto in the column labeled “Seller Obligation” shall be referred to herein as “Seller’s Leasing Costs”.  Except as otherwise set forth on Exhibit E, Seller hereby represents that there are no leasing commissions for any renewals or extensions of the Leases entered into prior to the date hereof and that the Leasing Costs designated on Exhibit E as Seller’s Leasing Costs are the only Leasing Costs applicable to the existing Leases encumbering the Property as of the date hereof.

 

Section 6.3.  Reapportionment.  Any errors in the calculation of apportionments shall be corrected or adjusted, and paid, as soon as practicable (but not more often than monthly) after the Closing Date.  If it is impracticable to apportion certain items hereunder (including, without limitation, water and sewer charges and rents) by the Closing Date, such items shall be apportioned, and paid, as soon as practicable after the Closing Date.

 

Section 6.4.  Monthly Statements.  So long as amounts payable by Tenants for periods prior to the Closing Date remain outstanding, or any other amount that is to be apportioned between Buyer and Seller pursuant to this Article VI remains subject to apportionment or adjustment, Buyer will provide Seller with a monthly report of payments received and amounts paid by Buyer with respect to the applicable Tenants and categories of revenue and expense.  Buyer shall not modify or amend any Lease in a manner that will decrease the amount payable to Seller pursuant to this Article VI.

 

Section 6.5.    Security Deposits.  The Security Deposits (as set forth on Exhibit I) under Leases which Seller represents are all of the Security Deposits paid by tenants under the Leases shall be delivered by Seller to Buyer or Seller may elect to give Buyer a credit against cash portion of the Initial Funding in the amount of such Security Deposits.

 

Section 6.6.  Timing.  The parties further agree to meet three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date to agree upon the apportionments in accordance with the terms hereof.

ARTICLE XIV.

 

DEFAULT; DAMAGES.

 

Section 14.1.  Buyer Defaults.  In the event that Buyer shall default under this Agreement prior to Closing, Buyer and Seller agree that the actual damages that Seller shall sustain as a result thereof shall be substantial and shall be extremely difficult and impractical to determine.  Buyer and Seller therefore agree that if Buyer fails to perform any or all of the obligations, terms, covenants, conditions and agreements to

 

22



 

be performed by Buyer hereunder, whether at or prior to the Closing, Seller’s remedy shall be to receive as full, complete and valid liquidated damages (and not a penalty) the Deposit held at such time by Escrow Holder together with any interest earned thereon from Escrow Holder, and thereafter neither Buyer nor Seller shall have any further liability or obligation to the other parties hereunder, except for such liabilities and obligations as are expressly stated to survive the termination of this Agreement. If Buyer shall fail to perform any or all of the obligations, terms, covenants, conditions and/or agreements to be performed by Buyer hereunder after the Closing, Seller shall have the right to pursue any rights and remedies available to Seller at law or in equity.

 

Section 14.2.  Pre-Closing Defaults.  In the event that on the Closing Date Seller has defaulted on its obligations hereunder in any material respect, then, subject to the provisions set forth below, Buyer shall be entitled, as its sole remedy, to either: (a) treat this Agreement as being in full force and effect and pursue only the remedy of specific performance against Seller; or (b) terminate this Agreement and receive a return of the Deposit together with any interest earned thereon (and the parties shall jointly instruct Escrow Holder to promptly return the Deposit, together with any interest earned thereon, to Buyer) and in the event of a willful and knowing default intended by Seller to thwart the consummation of the Closing hereunder, Seller shall reimburse Buyer for Buyer’s actual third-party costs and expenses incurred in connection with its due diligence review of the Property (evidenced by invoices or other evidence reasonably satisfactory to Seller) and Seller shall be liable to Buyer for all actual damages incurred by Buyer resulting from Seller’s default and Seller shall not have any further liability or obligation to Buyer hereunder nor shall Buyer have any further liability or obligation to Seller hereunder, except for such obligations as are specifically stated to survive the termination of the Agreement.  Buyer waives any right to pursue any other remedy at law or in equity for any default of Seller, including, without limitation, any right to seek, claim or obtain damages, other than as set forth in this Agreement or in the case of Seller’s fraud, but in no case shall Buyer seek punitive damages or consequential damages.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if prior to the Closing Date, Buyer has or obtains knowledge that Seller has defaulted on its obligations hereunder in any respect, and Buyer nevertheless proceeds with the Closing, then the default by Seller as to which Buyer shall have such knowledge shall be deemed waived by Buyer and Seller shall have no liability to Buyer or its successors and assigns in respect thereof.  Buyer shall promptly notify Seller in writing within two (2) Business Days if Buyer has or obtains knowledge that Seller has defaulted on its obligations hereunder in any respect.

 

Section 14.3.   Right to Cure.  Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary and without limiting any of Seller’s rights set forth in this Agreement, in the event that Seller has defaulted hereunder and such default has caused direct actual damages in a liquidated amount to Buyer, then, in such event, Seller shall be entitled, but shall not have any obligation, either: (a) prior to the Closing Date, to cure such default; or (b) provide Buyer with a credit against the Purchase Price in an amount equal to Buyer’s actual direct damages and such default shall be deemed cured in its entirety and Buyer shall remain obligated to purchase the Property without any further reduction in the Purchase Price.  In the event that Seller has defaulted hereunder and such default has caused direct actual damages in a liquidated amount to Buyer that are less than or equal to the Minimum Amount, then Buyer shall remain obligated to purchase the Property without any reduction in the Purchase Price.

 

Section 14.4.  Defaults Discovered Post Closing.  If Buyer closes the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and, after the Closing Date but before the applicable survival period (as expressly set forth in this Agreement), Buyer discovers a breach of any of Seller’s representations, warranties, covenants or indemnities hereunder or under any certificates and other documents executed at, or in connection with, the Closing, Buyer shall have the right, until the expiration of the applicable survival period, to sue Seller for actual direct damages incurred by Buyer as a result of such breach or breaches.  However, except with respect to the Master Lease Obligations, in any such event or events, Seller shall not have any liability to Buyer for all or any of such matters in excess of $2,000,000 (the “Post-Closing Damage Cap”). Except

 

23



 

with respect to the Master Lease Obligations, Buyer shall not enter any judgment or collect an amount in excess of the Post-Closing Damage Cap.  Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if Buyer had knowledge of a default by Seller on the Closing Date and Buyer elects to close the transaction contemplated herein, Buyer shall be deemed to have irrevocably waived such default and Seller shall not have any liability with respect to such default.

 

Section 14.5.  Liabilities of Seller.  From and after the Closing Date, Buyer shall be responsible for all liabilities, claims, suits, demands, damages, judgments, costs, fines, penalties, interest and expenses arising from, or in connection with any liabilities or obligations arising from and after the Closing Date (including, without limitation, all liabilities in connection with all Leasing Costs) and Seller shall be responsible for all liabilities, claims, suits, demands, damages, judgments, costs, fines, penalties, interest and expenses accruing prior to the Closing Date.

 

Section 14.6.  Individual Seller Responsibility.  Seller’s prorata share of OP Units as set forth in the Operating Agreement and right to Earnout Payments shall secure Seller’s surviving obligations, liabilities and indemnities set forth in this Agreement.  To the extent Seller does not receive OP Units, any liability, obligation or indemnity applicable to Seller may be collected from the Affiliate Sellers on a prorata basis, but only to the extent such Affiliate Sellers are holding OP Units in excess of their prorata share.  Seller’s prorata share of OP Units shall be based on the net proceeds received by Seller at the Closing and shall be set forth on Exhibit H.

 

Section 14.7.  Waiver of Consequential Damages.  In no event shall either party be liable to the other party for any consequential, special, punitive or indirect damages for a breach of any covenant, representation or warranty under this Agreement.

 

Section 14.8.  Survival.  The provisions of this Article XIV shall survive the Closing.

 

ARTICLE XV.

 

OPERATION OF THE PROPERTY UNTIL CLOSING.

 

Section 15.1.  Operation of the Property.

 

(a)  Between the date hereof and the Closing Date, Seller shall continue to operate and maintain the Property in the ordinary course of business in accordance with present business practices.

 

(b)  During the period between the Due Diligence Period and the Closing Date, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, with respect to the Occupied Leases, Seller may not, without the prior written consent of Buyer in each instance (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), (i) cancel or terminate any Lease (other than for a material default thereunder by a party other than Seller), (ii) amend or modify any Lease in any respect, (iii) renew or extend any Lease (other than pursuant to existing renewal or extension options in favor of Tenants), and (iv) apply any Security Deposit of any tenant under a Lease for a delinquency or default by such tenant (all such activity set forth in this Section 15.1(b) shall be called, “Leasing Activity”).  Between the date hereof and the Closing Date, Seller shall give Buyer notice (via the email address as set forth in Section 17.1 below) prior to doing any of the Leasing Activity referred to in this Section 15.1(b), which notice shall include the material terms of the proposed Leasing Activity as well as, if after the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, a request for Buyer’s consent thereto.  If Buyer’s consent is required and Buyer does not respond to Seller’s request for consent to its Leasing Activity within ten (10) Business Days after receipt thereof, time

 

24



 

being of the essence with respect thereto, Buyer shall be deemed to have consented to such Leasing Activity.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller shall have the right, without the prior consent of Buyer, to enter into (1) leases for the Earnout Spaces and the Master Lease Space; provided, however, that after the Due Diligence Period, such leases for Earnout Spaces and the Master Lease Spaces shall be in accordance with the requirements set forth in Section 4.3(b) and Section 4.4(a) respectively, and (2) any contract which can be terminated upon thirty (30) days written notice.

 

(c)  Notwithstanding any limitation set forth herein, Seller may, without Buyer’s consent and without cost to Buyer (unless otherwise set forth herein or unless otherwise approved by Buyer) (i) take such actions, if any, with respect to the Property, reasonably necessary to comply with the terms of the Leases, and any insurance requirements or to comply with laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority, (ii) take such actions as it deems reasonably necessary to repair any insured or uninsured casualty or damage, and (iii) take such actions with respect to the Property reasonably necessary to prevent loss of life, personal injury or property damage.

 

Section 15.2.  Continued Operation by Seller.  Prior to Closing, Seller, at its cost, will, so long as the other party thereto is not in default thereunder, continue to (or cause Seller to continue to) perform and observe in all material respects all of the covenants and conditions required to be performed by Seller in the same manner as presently performed and observed by Seller under (a) the Leases, (b) Service Contracts, (c) the Permitted Encumbrances, (d) any note, indenture, mortgage or deed of trust affecting the Property, and (e) any Permits; provided, however, that the foregoing agreement shall not limit Seller’s rights to terminate any of the foregoing agreements to the extent otherwise permitted hereunder.

 

ARTICLE XVI.

 

CASUALTY AND CONDEMNATION.

 

Section 16.1.  Condemnation.  If, prior to the Closing Date, a material part (as defined in this Section 16.1) of the Property is taken by eminent domain (or is the subject of a pending taking which has not yet been consummated), Seller shall notify Buyer of such fact promptly after obtaining knowledge thereof and Buyer, at its option, may terminate the Agreement by giving notice to Seller not later than ten (10) Business Days after receipt of Seller’s notice.  For the purposes hereof, a “material part” of the Property with respect to the taking of the Property by eminent domain shall mean either (A) the taking of any portion of the Property is reasonably estimated by Buyer and Seller to reduce the value of the Property by more than two and one-half percent (2.5%) or (B) if any Tenant occupying more than 3,000 square feet terminates its Lease at the Property as a result of the taking.  Provided, if any Tenant terminates its lease as a result of a condemnation, the Purchase Price shall be reduced using the formula for calculation of an Earnout Payment and the terminated lease shall become an Earnout Space.  If Buyer does not timely terminate the Agreement, there shall be no abatement of the Purchase Price and Seller shall assign to Buyer on the Closing Date the rights of Seller to any portion of the award that has not been used by Seller to restore or rebuild the Property, if any, for the taking, and Buyer shall be entitled to receive and keep all awards for the taking of the Property or such portion thereof. Furthermore, Buyer shall have the right to approve any settlement with the applicable governmental authority, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

 

Section 16.2.  Casualty.  If, prior to the Closing Date, a material part (as defined in this Section 16.2) of the Property is destroyed or damaged by fire or other casualty (a “Damaged Property”), Seller shall promptly notify Buyer of such fact and Buyer, at its option, may terminate the Agreement by giving notice to Seller not later than ten (10) Business Days after receipt of Seller’s notice.  For the purposes hereof, a “material part” of the Property shall mean any portion of the Property where the amount required to repair or restore the destruction or damage caused by fire or other casualty is reasonably

 

25



 

estimated by Buyer and Seller to be more than two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the Purchase Price, or if any Tenant occupying more than 3,000 square feet terminates its Lease at the Property as a result of the fire or other casualty.  Provided, if any Tenant terminates its lease as a result of a casualty, the Purchase Price shall be reduced using the formula for calculation of an Earnout Payment and the terminated lease shall become an Earnout Space.  If Buyer does not elect to terminate this Agreement as aforesaid, or if there is damage to or destruction of an “immaterial part” (i.e., anything other than a material part) of the Property by fire or other casualty, there shall be no abatement of the Purchase Price and Seller shall assign to Buyer (without recourse) on the Closing Date the rights of Seller to any portion of the proceeds that has not been used by Seller to repair such casualty under Seller’s insurance policies, if any, covering the Property with respect to such damage or destruction, and Buyer shall be entitled to receive and keep any such monies received from such insurance policies (and shall be entitled to applicable deductibles, if any).  In furtherance hereof, in the event an “immaterial part” of the Property is damaged after the date hereof, Seller shall, in accordance with sound management practice, repair such damage and Buyer shall, on the Closing Date, reimburse to Seller the cost thereof, less any amount of insurance proceeds received by Seller (but not paid to Buyer) in connection therewith. Seller shall not enter into any settlement with the insurance carrier without the consent of Buyer, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.  Seller shall not modify, terminate or otherwise permit any of Seller’s existing insurance policies to lapse or terminate prior to the Closing Date.  If any damage or destruction which occurs prior to the Closing Date is not covered by Seller’s insurance, then Buyer’s sole remedy shall be to either (a) close and receive a credit against the Purchase Price in the amount of such damage or destruction, or (b) terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 16.3 hereof.

 

Section 16.3.  Termination.  If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to this Article XVI, the Deposit shall be returned to Buyer, at which time this Agreement shall be null and void and neither party shall have any rights or obligations under this Agreement, except that the provisions of the following shall expressly survive such termination and be enforceable by the parties after termination: Sections 3.4 and 3.5 and Article XI.

 

ARTICLE XVII.

FIRST AMENDMENT TO AGREEMENT OF PURCHASE AND SALE

 

AND

 

CONTRIBUTION AGREEMENT

 

THIS AMENDMENT (the “Amendment”) is executed as of the 20th day of December 2012 by and among INLAND REAL ESTATE ACQUISITIONS, INC., an Illinois corporation (“Buyer”) and CENTENNIAL GATEWAY, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Seller”).  Seller and Buyer are sometimes collectively referred to in this Agreement as the “Parties” or individually as a “Party”.

 

RECITALS

 

A.                                    Seller and Buyer executed and delivered a certain Agreement of Purchase and Sale and Contribution Agreement, dated October 17, 2012 (the “Agreement”) pertaining to the sale and purchase of certain retail shopping centers located in Clark County, Nevada, as more fully described in the Agreement.  Any capitalized term that is used in this Amendment and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Agreement.

 

B.                                    The Parties desire to amend the Agreement as set forth below.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree as follows:

 

1.                    Exhibit A-2.  In accordance with Section 4.1 of the Agreement, the Parties agree that Exhibit A-2 attached to the Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and Exhibit A-2 attached to this Amendment is hereby substituted in lieu thereof as the final Exhibit A-2 to the Agreement.

 

2.                    Post-Closing Repairs. Seller hereby agrees to perform those certain repairs set forth on Schedule 1, attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference, which Seller specifically indicates that it will perform (the “Post-Closing Repairs”) prior to January 31, 2013.  If Seller does not perform the Post-Closing Repairs prior to January 31, 2013, Buyer shall have the right, but not the obligation, to perform the Post-Closing Repairs on behalf of Seller and if Buyer elects to do so, Seller shall reimburse and pay, within thirty (30) days after invoice therefor, Buyer for all reasonably costs and expenses paid to third parties by Buyer in so performing such Post-Closing Repairs.  If Seller fails to pay such amount within such 30-day period, Buyer shall have the right to offset any such amounts against all monthly dividend or redemption payments with respect to Preferred Units and Earnout Payments due to Seller in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.

 



 

3.                    Confidentiality.  Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the terms of this Amendment are confidential in nature.  Buyer agrees not to disclose any of the terms of the Agreement to any person outside of Buyer’s organization except: (i) to Buyer’s attorneys, accountants, lenders or prospective lenders (collectively, the “Permitted Outside Parties”), who shall agree in writing to be bound by the provisions of this Paragraph; or (ii) as may be required by law, in which event Buyer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Seller of any required disclosure prior to releasing any information.

 

4.                    Closing.  Buyer acknowledges that the Due Diligence Period has expired and, subject to the terms of the Amendment, that Buyer has accepted the title and physical condition of the Properties.  Buyer and Seller agree that the Closing Date shall be December 27, 2012 or such other date if mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Seller; provided that in no event shall the Closing Date be later than December 31, 2012.

 

5.                    General Provisions.  To the extent of any conflict between the provisions of this Amendment and the provisions of the Agreement, the provisions of this Amendment shall control.  Except as set forth in this Amendment, the Parties ratify and affirm the Agreement in its entirety, and the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.  This Amendment shall be governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the laws (excluding the choice of laws rules) of the state of Nevada.  This Amendment shall inure to the benefit of, and be binding on, the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.  This Amendment may be executed in any number of duplicate originals or counterparts, each of which when so executed shall constitute in the aggregate but one and the same document. Counterpart signature pages may be delivered by facsimile, email or other means of electronic transmission.  The provisions of this Amendment will survive the Closing.
