-17-




completeness of the Documents or the sources thereof (whether prepared by Sellers, Sellers’ Affiliates or any other person or entity), and (ii) Sellers have not undertaken any independent investigation as to the truth, accuracy or completeness of the Documents and are providing the Documents solely as an accommodation to Purchaser.
(e)

Section 5.3

(b)
    Purchaser hereby indemnifies, defends and holds each Seller and all of their members, partners, agents, officers, directors, employees, successors, assigns and Affiliates harmless from and against any and all liens, claims, causes of action, damages, liabilities, demands, suits, and obligations, together with all losses, penalties, actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses relating to any of the foregoing (including but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Indemnified Liabilities”) arising out of any personal injury or death or physical

-18-




damage to property caused by inspections, investigations, examinations, entries, samplings or tests conducted by Purchaser or any Licensee Party, whether prior to or after the date hereof, with respect to the Property or any violation of the provisions of this Section 5.3; provided that, for purposes of clarification, the foregoing obligation to indemnify, defend and hold harmless shall not apply to any Indemnified Liabilities arising by virtue of (x) the negligence or willful misconduct of Seller or any other indemnified party, or (y) the mere discovery of any pre-existing condition at the Property in connection with any inspections, investigations, examinations, entries, samplings or tests conducted by Purchaser or any Licensee Party, except and solely to the extent of any exacerbation by Purchaser or any Licensee Party of any such pre-existing condition.
(c)
    Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, neither the Closing nor a termination of this Agreement will terminate Purchaser’s obligations pursuant to this Section 5.3, which shall survive Closing or termination.
(d)
    Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Inspection Agreement shall not be merged into this Agreement at Closing or otherwise.
Section 5.4
    Property Approval Period.

Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Purchaser shall have no right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 5.4 unless Purchaser is not satisfied with the results of either or both of the final Phase IIs for any reason or no reason in its sole discretion during the Property Approval Period. Accordingly, Purchaser may terminate this Agreement pursuant to the previous sentence by delivering written notice thereof to Seller and the Title Company no later than the expiration of the Property Approval Period, and Title Company shall return to Purchaser the Earnest Money Deposit pursuant to the terms of Section 4.6 hereof. Following such termination, Purchaser shall pay any cancellation fees or charges of Title Company, and except for the Termination Surviving Obligations, the parties shall have no further rights or obligations to one another under this Agreement. If Purchaser fails to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 5.4, Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived its right to terminate this Agreement as provided in this Section 5.4. If Purchaser elects to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 5.4, the Other Property Agreements shall also terminate in accordance with Section 10.11 hereof.

Except as expressly provided herein, Sellers shall have no obligation whatsoever to expend or agree to expend any funds, to undertake or agree to undertake any obligations, or otherwise to cure or agree to cure any title objections. To the extent Purchaser timely delivers a Title Notice, then Sellers shall deliver, no later than June 17, 2016, written notice to Purchaser and Title Company identifying which disapproved items, if any, Sellers shall be obligated to cure by Closing (by either having the same removed as an exception in the applicable PTR or by otherwise obtaining affirmative insurance over the same as part of the final Title Policy, such affirmative insurance to be acceptable to Purchaser in its sole and absolute discretion) (“Sellers’ Response”). If Sellers do not deliver Sellers’ Response prior to such date, Sellers shall be deemed to have elected to not remove or otherwise cure any exceptions disapproved by Purchaser. If Sellers elect, or are deemed to have elected, not to remove or otherwise cure an exception disapproved in Purchaser’s Title Notice, Purchaser shall have until the Contingency Date to (i) deliver a written notice terminating this Agreement (“Termination Notice”) to Sellers and Title Company terminating this Agreement as set forth in Section 5.4 above, or (ii) waive any such objection to the PTRs and the Updated Surveys (whereupon such objections shall be deemed Permitted Exceptions for all purposes hereof). If Sellers and Title Company have not received a Termination Notice from Purchaser by the Contingency Date, such failure to deliver same shall be deemed Purchaser’s waiver of all objections to the PTRs and the Updated Surveys that Seller did not agree to cure by Closing, subject to Sellers’ obligations set forth in Section 6.2(c) below and as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement.
(f)
    Purchaser may, at or prior to Closing, notify Sellers in writing (the “Gap Notice”) of any objections to title (i) raised by the Title Company between the Title Notice Date and the Closing, (ii) not disclosed in writing by the Title Company to Purchaser by 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the second Business Day preceding the Title Notice Date, and/or (iii) not disclosed in writing by Sellers to Purchaser and the Title Company by 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the second

-24-




Business Day preceding the Title Notice Date (“New Exceptions”); provided that Purchaser must notify Sellers of any objection to any such New Exception prior to the date which is the earlier to occur of (x) three (3) Business Days after receipt of an updated PTR revealing the existence of such New Exception and (y) the Closing Date. If Purchaser fails to deliver to Sellers a notice of objections on or before such date, Purchaser will be deemed to have waived any objection to the New Exceptions, and the New Exceptions will be included as Permitted Exceptions. Sellers will have two (2) days from the receipt of Purchaser’s notice (and, if necessary, Sellers may extend the Closing Date to provide for such two (2) day period and for two (2) days following such period for Purchaser’s response), within which time Sellers may, but is under no obligation to, remove same as an exception in the applicable PTR or otherwise obtain affirmative insurance over same as part of the final Title Policy, such affirmative insurance to be acceptable to Purchaser in its sole and absolute discretion. If, within the two (2) day period, Sellers do not remove such objectionable New Exceptions in the applicable PTR or otherwise obtain affirmative insurance over same as part of the final Title Policy (such affirmative insurance to be acceptable to Purchaser in its sole and absolute discretion objectionable), then Purchaser may terminate this Agreement upon delivering a Termination Notice to Sellers in accordance with Section 5.4 above no later than the date that is two (2) Business Days following the expiration of the two (2) day cure period (and Closing shall automatically be extended to permit such 2 Business Day Period to run), in which case Purchaser shall be entitled to return of the Earnest Money Deposit. If Purchaser fails to terminate this Agreement in the manner set forth above, the New Exceptions (except those Sellers have removed as an exception in the applicable PTR or otherwise affirmatively insured over on terms acceptable to Purchaser in its sole and absolute discretion) will be included as Permitted Exceptions.
(g)
    Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary including, but not limited to Section 6.2 hereof, (A) at or prior to Closing, Sellers shall cause the removal of all exceptions to title to the Real Properties and Improvements from each PTR and each related Title Policy relating to monetary liens, security liens and interests, mechanic’s liens, judgment liens and/or tax liens affecting the Property arising by, through or under Seller, other than liens caused by Tenants or Purchaser or its agents or the lien for ad valorem taxes and assessments for tax years not yet due and payable (collectively, the “Must-Cure Matters”), (B) in no event shall any Must-Cure Matter be deemed a Permitted Exception under this Agreement, and (C) if Sellers fail to satisfy its obligations under Section 6.2(c)(A) hereof with respect to any Must-Cure Matter, then (i) Sellers shall be in default under this Agreement, and (ii) in lieu of pursuing specific performance or any other remedy against Sellers pursuant to the terms of Section 13.1 hereof, Purchaser shall have the right on behalf of Sellers to satisfy such obligations at Closing and all of Purchaser’s actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses actually incurred in connection with same shall be credited against the Purchase Price at Closing.
Section 6.3
    Title Insurance. At the Closing, and as a condition thereto, the Title Company shall issue to Purchaser an ALTA extended coverage Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance (the “Title Policy”) with liability in the amount of the Purchase Price, showing title to the Real Properties vested in the Purchaser, with such endorsements as Purchaser shall request and Title Company shall have agreed to issue same, subject only to: (i) the pre-printed standard exceptions in such Title Policy that are

In the event Purchaser elects not to pay for any additional premium for the ALTA extended coverage policy, then the Title Policy to be issued as of the Closing shall be a standard ALTA Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance which shall include, among other things, a general survey exception. It is understood that Purchaser may request a number of endorsements to the Title Policy, but the issuance of any such endorsements shall not be a condition to Closing. If (i) the Title Company (A) is unable or unwilling to consummate Closing or to otherwise delete or revise any title exception, issue any endorsement or commit to any specific coverage or affirmative title insurance requested by Purchaser with respect to the Title Policy or any title policy requested by Purchaser’s lender (such requested insurance, the “Requested Insurance”), or (B) requires that Purchaser, Seller, Purchaser’s lender or any other third party provide any affidavits, indemnities, agreements, due diligence or other documentation in order for the Title Company to consummate Closing or to otherwise provide the Requested Insurance, (ii) Purchaser provides written evidence (which may be via electronic mail) to Sellers of such inability or unwillingness of, or requirements by, the Title Company to provide the Requested Insurance, and (iii) Purchaser provides written evidence to Sellers that Fidelity National Title Insurance Company (“Fidelity”) has committed to consummate Closing or to otherwise provide the Requested Insurance without requiring the satisfaction of any requirements of Title Company being contested by Purchaser, Purchaser shall have the right (the “Title Company Option”) to transfer responsibility as the Title Company hereunder to Fidelity by written notice to Seller. If Purchaser properly exercises the Title Company Option, (w) Title Company, Seller and Purchaser shall cause the Earnest Money Deposit to be transferred to Fidelity, (x) Fidelity shall execute a revised Title Company Joinder page to this Agreement upon receipt of the Earnest Money Deposit, (y) the Closing Extension Conditions shall be modified to remove the condition precedent described in Section 10.8(b), and (z) Seller shall not be required to modify the form of Owner Affidavit attached hereto as Exhibit K except to change the name of the Title Company to Fidelity.

Should Purchaser elect to terminate Purchaser’s obligations under this Agreement under the provisions of this Section 9.3, the Earnest Money Deposit will be returned to Purchaser upon Purchaser’s compliance with Section 4.6 and neither Sellers nor Purchaser will have any further

-35-




obligation under this Agreement except for the Termination Surviving Obligations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if any eminent domain or condemnation proceeding is instituted (or notice of same is given) solely for the taking of any subsurface rights for utility easements or for any right-of-way easement (in lieu of fee simple title), and the surface may, after such taking, be used in substantially the same manner as though such rights have not been taken, Purchaser will not be entitled to terminate this Agreement as to any part of the applicable Property, but any award resulting therefrom will be assigned to Purchaser at Closing and will be the exclusive property of Purchaser upon Closing.

Section 10.4
    Prorations.
(e)
    Sellers and Purchaser agree to adjust, as of 11:59 p.m. on the day immediately preceding the Closing Date (the “Closing Time”), the following (collectively, the “Proration Items”) real estate and personal property taxes and assessments for the year in which Closing occurs, utility bills (except as hereinafter provided), collected Rentals (subject to the terms of (b) below), expenses under Permitted Exceptions, and expenses under Service Contracts assumed by Purchaser at Closing payable by the owner of the Property (on the basis of a 365 day year, actual days elapsed). Sellers will be charged and credited for the amounts of all of the Proration Items relating to the period up to and including the Closing Time, and Purchaser will be charged and credited for all of the Proration Items relating to the period after the Closing Time. Such preliminary estimated Closing prorations shall be set forth on a preliminary closing statement to be prepared by Sellers and submitted to Purchaser for Purchaser’s approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date (the “Closing Statement”). The Closing Statement, once agreed upon, shall be signed by Purchaser and Sellers and delivered to the Title Company for purposes of making the preliminary proration adjustment at Closing subject to the final cash settlement provided for below. The preliminary proration shall be paid at Closing by Purchaser to Sellers (if the preliminary prorations result in a net credit to Sellers) or by Sellers to Purchaser (if the preliminary prorations result in a net credit to Purchaser) by increasing or reducing the cash to be delivered by Purchaser in payment of the Purchase Price at the Closing. If the actual amounts of the Proration Items are not known as of the Closing Time, the prorations will be made

-39-




at Closing on the basis of the best evidence then available; thereafter, when actual figures are received, re-prorations will be made on the basis of the actual figures, and a final cash settlement will be made between Sellers and Purchaser. No prorations will be made in relation to insurance premiums (except to the extent covered by the proration of Operating Expense Recoveries), and Sellers’ insurance policies will not be assigned to Purchaser. Final readings and final billings for utilities will be made if possible as of the Closing Time, in which event no proration will be made at the Closing with respect to utility bills (except to the extent covered by the proration of Operating Expense Recoveries). Sellers will be entitled to all deposits presently in effect with the utility providers, and Purchaser will be obligated to make its own arrangements for deposits with the utility providers. Seller shall cooperate in good faith with Purchaser to facilitate the transfer of all utilities to Purchaser at and/or immediately following the Closing. A final reconciliation of Proration Items shall be made by Purchaser and Sellers on or before November 30, 2016 (herein, the “Final Proration Date”). The provisions of this Section 10.4 will survive the Closing until the Final Proration Date has occurred, and in the event any items subject to proration hereunder are discovered prior to the Final Proration Date, the same shall be promptly prorated by the parties in accordance with the terms of this Section 10.4. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided in this Agreement including, but not limited to, this Section 10.4(a), Sellers and Purchaser hereby agree to use the following, estimated 2016 real estate taxes and assessments for purposes of the proration of same at Closing: (x) $172,450.00 for the Cherokee Plaza Real Property and the Cherokee Plaza Improvements, (y) $154,000.00 for the Sandy Plains Exchange Real Property and the Sandy Plains Exchange Improvements, and (z) $105,000.00 for the Thompson Bridge Commons Real Property and the Thompson Bridge Commons Improvements.
(f)
    Purchaser will receive a credit on the Closing Statement for the prorated amount (as of the Closing Time) of all Rentals previously paid to and collected by Sellers and attributable to any period following the Closing Time. After the Closing, Sellers will cause to be paid or turned over to Purchaser all Rentals, if any, received by Sellers after Closing and properly attributable to any period following the Closing Time. “Rentals” includes fixed monthly rentals, parking rentals and charges, additional rentals, percentage rentals, escalation rentals (which include such Tenant’s proportionate share of building operation and maintenance costs and expenses as provided for under the applicable Tenant Lease, to the extent the same exceeds any expense stop specified in such Tenant Lease), retroactive rentals, administrative charges, utility charges, tenant or real property association dues, storage rentals, special event proceeds, temporary rents, telephone receipts, locker rentals, vending machine receipts and other sums and charges payable to the landlord under the Tenant Lease or from other occupants or users of the Property, excluding specific tenant billings which are governed by Section 10.4(d). Rentals are “Delinquent” if they were due prior to the Closing Time and payment thereof has not been made on or before the Closing Time. Delinquent Rentals will not be prorated. For a period of three (3) months after Closing, Purchaser agrees to use good faith collection procedures with respect to the collection of any Delinquent Rentals, but Purchaser will have no liability for the failure to collect any such amounts and will not be required to incur legal fees or other out of pocket expenses, conduct lock-outs or take any other legal action to enforce collection of any such amounts owed to Sellers by Tenants of the Property. Purchaser shall have the exclusive right to collect Delinquent Rentals from current Tenants of the Property and Seller hereby relinquishes its rights to pursue claims against any Tenant or guarantor

-40-




under any Tenant Leases for same. Nothing herein shall prohibit Seller from pursuing Delinquent Rentals from former tenants of the Property. With respect to any Delinquent Rentals received by Purchaser within one (1) year after Closing (the “Delinquent Rental Proration Period”), Purchaser shall pay to Sellers any rent or payment actually collected during the Delinquent Rental Proration Period properly attributable to the period prior to the Closing Time. All sums collected by Purchaser during the Delinquent Rental Proration Period, from such Tenant (excluding Tenant payments for Operating Expense Recoveries attributable to the period prior to the Closing Time and tenant specific billings for tenant work orders and other specific services as described in and governed by Section 10.4(d) below, all of which shall be payable to and belong to Sellers in all events, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary) will be applied first to amounts currently owed by such Tenant to Purchaser (including Delinquent Rentals attributable to the period after the Closing Time), then any collection costs of Purchaser related to such Tenant, and then to prior delinquencies owed by Tenant to Sellers. Sellers shall not be entitled to institute legal actions to pursue Delinquent Rental after Closing. Any sums collected by Purchaser and due Sellers will be promptly remitted to Sellers, and any sums collected by Sellers and due Purchaser will be promptly remitted to Purchaser.
(g)
    Not less than ten (10) days prior to the scheduled Closing Date, Sellers will prepare a reconciliation as of the Closing Time of the amounts of all billings and charges for operating expenses and taxes (collectively, “Operating Expense Recoveries”) for calendar year 2016. Sellers shall deliver all supporting invoices when it delivers the reconciliation prepared by Sellers described in the preceding sentence. Furthermore, in preparing the reconciliation, all delinquent payments from Tenants shall be disregarded so as to reduce any amount potentially owed from Purchaser to Seller at Closing. If less amounts have been collected from Tenants for Operating Expense Recoveries for calendar year 2016 than would have been owed by Tenants under the Tenant Leases if the reconciliations under such Tenant Leases were completed as of the Closing Time based on the operating expenses and taxes incurred by Sellers for calendar year 2016 up to the Closing Time (as prorated pursuant to Section 10.4(a) above), Purchaser will pay such difference to Sellers at Closing as an addition to the Purchase Price. If more amounts have been collected from Tenants for Operating Expense Recoveries for calendar year 2016 than would have been owed by Tenants under the Tenant Leases if the reconciliations under the Tenant Leases were completed as of the Closing Time based on the operating expenses and taxes incurred by Sellers for calendar year 2016 up to the Closing Time (as prorated pursuant to Section 10.4(a) above), Sellers will pay to Purchaser at Closing as a credit against the Purchase Price such excess collected amount. Purchaser and Sellers agree that such proration of Operating Expense Recoveries at Closing for calendar year 2016 will fully relieve Sellers from any responsibility to Tenants or Purchaser for such matters subject to Sellers’ and Purchaser’s right and obligation to finalize prorations prior to the Final Proration Date, solely to make adjustments necessary to the extent estimates used in the calculation of such reconciliation at Closing differ from actual bills received after Closing for those items covered by such reconciliation at Closing or to correct any errors. In this regard, subject to Section 10.4(b) dealing with Delinquent Rentals, the foregoing proration will fully relieve Sellers from any responsibility to Tenants or Purchaser for such matters and Purchaser will be solely responsible, from and after Closing, for (i) collecting from Tenants the amount of any outstanding Operating Expense Recoveries for calendar year 2016 for periods before and after Closing, and (ii) reimbursing

-41-




Tenants for amounts attributable to Operating Expense Recoveries for calendar year 2016, as may be necessary based on annual reconciliations for Operating Expense Recoveries for such calendar year.
(h)
    With respect to specific tenant billings for work orders, special items performed or provided at the request of a Tenant or other specific services, which are collected by Purchaser or Sellers after the Closing Time but expressly state they are for such specific services rendered by Sellers or their property manager prior to the Closing Time, Purchaser shall cause such collected amounts to be paid to Sellers, or Sellers may retain such payment if such payment is received by Sellers after the Closing Time.
(i)
    (i) Sellers shall pay those Leasing Costs incurred in connection with the lease of space in the Property that were executed prior to the Effective Date including, but not limited to, those Leasing Costs identified on Exhibit G attached hereto to the extent unpaid as of the Closing Date; (ii) Seller shall pay all Leasing Costs incurred or to be incurred in connection with any new Tenant Lease, or the renewal, expansion, or modification of any Tenant Lease executed on or after the Effective Date that required the approval of Purchaser pursuant to Section 7.1(d) but for which Seller failed to obtain such approval of Purchaser pursuant thereto; (iii) in the event Closing is consummated, Purchaser will be solely responsible for and shall pay all Leasing Costs incurred or to be incurred in connection with any new Tenant Lease, or the renewal, expansion, or modification of any Tenant Lease executed on or after the Effective Date that has been approved by Purchaser in accordance with Section 7.1(d) (“New Tenant Costs”); and (iv) to the extent Leasing Costs described in clause (i) and/or (ii) above remain unpaid as of Closing, Purchaser shall receive a credit from Sellers therefor at Closing and Purchaser shall be responsible after Closing for paying any Leasing Costs for which Purchaser received such a credit, provided that Purchaser shall not receive a credit for any leasing commissions payable to any Seller’s property manager pursuant to the applicable Management Agreement, and Sellers shall pay all such amounts due in accordance with the applicable Management Agreement. Purchaser and Seller acknowledge that Purchaser shall also receive a credit at Closing against the Purchase Price for the items described on Exhibit G-1 attached hereto.
(j)
    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided in this Agreement, Seller shall not have the right to file and pursue any appeals attributable to Seller’s period of ownership of the Property with respect to tax assessments for the Property. If Purchaser elects to file and pursue such an appeal and Purchaser is successful in its pursuit related to the calendar year in which the Closing occurs, Purchaser and Seller shall share in the cost of any such appeal and rebates or refunds in the same proportion as the proration of Proration Items set forth on the settlement statement executed by the parties at Closing.
(k)
     Furthermore, with respect to the Tenant Lease for Anytime Fitness for a portion of the Sandy Plains Exchange Improvements (the “Anytime Fitness Tenant Lease”),

-42-




Purchaser and Seller acknowledge that the Anytime Fitness Tenant Lease is subject to three (3) lease contingencies that have not been satisfied or otherwise waived in writing by each party to the Anytime Fitness Tenant Lease as of the Effective Date. If all of the lease contingencies have not been satisfied or otherwise waived in writing by both parties to the Anytime Fitness Tenant Lease as of the Closing Date, Seller shall place an amount in escrow with the Title Company at Closing equal to $397,713.45 (the “Anytime Fitness Escrow Amount”). If the lease contingencies are all satisfied or otherwise waived in writing by both parties to the Anytime Fitness Tenant Lease following the Closing Date but not later than November 30, 2016 (as confirmed in writing by both Seller and Purchaser), the Title Company shall deliver the Anytime Fitness Escrow Amount to Seller. If (A) the lease is terminated due to the failure of one or more of the lease contingencies (as confirmed in writing by both Seller and Purchaser), or (B) the lease contingencies are not all satisfied or otherwise waived in writing by both parties to the Anytime Fitness Tenant Lease by November 30, 2016, the Title Company shall deliver the Anytime Fitness Escrow Amount to Purchaser, but such delivery shall occur no earlier than the Closing Date. At Closing, Seller, Purchaser and Title Company shall enter into a commercially reasonable escrow agreement setting forth the terms of this Section 10.4(g) upon the request of any of them. The provisions of this Section 10.4(g) shall survive Closing.
Section 10.5
    Delivery of Real Property. Upon completion of the Closing, Sellers will deliver to Purchaser possession of the Real Properties and Improvements, subject to the Tenant Leases and the Permitted Exceptions.
Section 10.6
    Costs of Title Company and Closing Costs. Costs of the Title Company and other Closing costs incurred in connection with the Closing will be allocated as follows:
(a)
    Purchaser will pay (i) all premium and other incremental costs for obtaining the Title Policy and all endorsements thereto, (ii) all premiums and other costs for any mortgagee policy of title insurance, including but not limited to any endorsements or deletions, (iii) Purchaser’s attorney’s fees, (iv) the costs of any update or re-certification of the Updated Surveys, (v) 1/2 of all of the Title Company’s escrow and closing fees, if any, and (vi) any intangible recording tax or recording fees for any financing obtained by Purchaser in connection with Closing.
(b)
    Sellers will pay (i) the cost of the Updated Surveys, (ii) 1/2 of all of the Title Company’s escrow and closing fees, (iii) Sellers’ attorneys’ fees (iv) transfer tax and recording fees payable upon recordation of the Deeds, and (v) prepayment penalties or premiums incurred by Sellers with respect to prepaying the Property’s existing mortgage indebtedness at Closing (if any).
(c)
    Any other costs and expenses of Closing not provided for in this Section 10.6 shall be allocated between Purchaser and Sellers in accordance with the custom in the county in which the applicable Real Property is located.

-43-




(d)
    Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, if the Closing does not occur on or before the Closing Date for any reason whatsoever, the costs incurred through the date of termination will be borne by the party incurring same.
Section 10.7
    Post-Closing Delivery of Tenant Notice Letters. Immediately following Closing, Purchaser will deliver to each Tenant a written notice executed by Purchaser and the applicable Seller (i) acknowledging the sale of the Property to Purchaser, (ii) acknowledging that Purchaser has received and is responsible for the Tenant Deposits (specifying the exact amount of the Tenant Deposits) and (iii) indicating that rent should thereafter be paid to Purchaser and giving instructions therefor (the “Tenant Notice Letters”). Purchaser shall provide to Sellers a copy of each Tenant Notice Letter promptly after delivery of same. This Section 10.7 shall survive Closing.
Section 10.8
    General Conditions Precedent to Purchaser’s Obligations Regarding the Closing. In addition to the conditions to Purchaser’s obligations set forth in this Agreement, the obligation of Purchaser to Close the sale/purchase transaction hereunder shall be conditioned upon the satisfaction of the following conditions, any of which may be waived by written notice from Purchaser to Sellers, and all of which shall be deemed waived upon Closing:
(a)
    Sellers shall have performed in all material respects each of the obligations of Sellers set forth in this Agreement as of the Closing Date;
(b)
    The Title Company shall be irrevocably committed to issue the Title Policy as provided in Section 6.3;
(c)
    Purchaser shall have received the Acceptable Estoppel Certificates to the extent required under Section 7.2; and
(d)
    Subject to Section 10.9, Sellers’ representations and warranties made in Section 8.1 shall be true and correct in all material respects as of the Closing as if remade on the Closing Date, except for those representations and warranties that speak as of a certain date, which representations and warranties shall have been true as of such prior date, and except with respect to Authorized Qualifications and Immaterial Events.
The term “Authorized Qualifications” shall mean any qualifications to the representations and warranties made by Sellers in Section 8.1 to reflect (i) new Tenant Leases, Tenant Lease amendments, new Service Contracts, and/or Service Contract amendments, executed by Sellers after the Effective Date in accordance with this Agreement, and (ii) any action taken by Sellers in accordance with any Tenant Leases, Service Contracts, or Permitted Exceptions after the Effective Date not prohibited by or otherwise in contravention of the terms of this Agreement, and (iii) a

-44-




Tenant Lease default or a Tenant insolvency occurring after the Effective Date. The term “Immaterial Events” shall mean any fact or event that is not caused by any Seller or any of the Seller Released Parties that does not or is not expected to result in a loss of value, damage (including, but not limited to, indirect, consequential and speculative damages likely to be incurred), claim or expense in excess of $100,000.00, in the aggregate; provided, however, that any and all breaches of Sellers’ representations and warranties made in Section 8.1 that are not true and correct in all material respects as of the Effective Date shall in no event be deemed an Immaterial Event, and Section 10.9(b) shall be applicable with respect to such items. Authorized Qualifications and Immaterial Events shall not constitute a default by Sellers or a failure of a condition precedent to Closing. Purchaser shall receive a credit against the Purchase Price at Closing for the amount of damage anticipated to be caused by any Immaterial Event. If (x) between the Effective Date and the Closing Date, facts or events not known to Sellers prior to the Effective Date are discovered by Sellers, (y) such facts or events are not Authorized Qualifications or Immaterial Events or otherwise caused by any Seller or any of the Seller Released Parties, and (z) such facts or events would result in a failure of the condition set forth in Section 10.8(d) above, such failure shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement, and following Sellers’ written notice to Purchaser (which Seller shall be obligated to deliver to Purchaser within two [2] Business Days of Seller’s actual knowledge of same), Purchaser’s sole remedies in such event shall be to either: (i) waive the condition and proceed to Closing; or (ii) terminate this Agreement (by delivering written notice thereof to Sellers); provided, however, if Purchaser does not exercise its right to terminate this Agreement on or before the later of (1) Closing or (2) the date that is three (3) Business Days after Purchaser receives written notice from Seller of such facts or events (and Closing shall be automatically extended to permit the running of such period), then Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected to waive the condition and proceed to Closing. If Purchaser terminates this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.8, then, subject to compliance with Section 10.9 below, the Earnest Money Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and the parties shall have no further obligations or liabilities hereunder, except for the Termination Surviving Obligations.
Section 10.9
    Breaches of Sellers’ Representations Prior to Closing.
(a)
    If, prior to the Closing, Purchaser shall deliver a written notice to Sellers asserting a breach of any representation or any warranty of Sellers that was initially true and correct in all material respects on the Effective Date but which thereafter failed to remain true and correct in all material respects due to any fact or event that was not caused by Seller or any of the Seller Released Parties (and which is not the result of an Authorized Qualification), for which the damage (including, but not limited to, indirect, consequential and speculative damages) from all its Claims for such breaches are in an amount that exceeds $100,000.00 (a “Material Breach”), then Purchaser may, as its sole and exclusive remedy, upon the delivery of written notice of such breach to Sellers either (i) proceed to close the purchase of the Property with a credit against the Purchase Price in an amount of the damage (including, but not limited to, indirect, consequential and speculative damages) as reasonably determined by Purchaser in such written notice, such amount to be not more than $500,000 on account of such asserted breach (and with no liability to Sellers beyond such credit) and, upon receipt of such credit at Closing, to waive any claims against Sellers for such

-45-




Claims with respect to such Material Breach or (ii) terminate this Agreement by the giving of the written notice to Sellers of same. If Purchaser has elected to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.9(a)(ii) above, Purchaser shall receive a refund of the Earnest Money Deposit, and Sellers shall be obligated to promptly reimburse Purchaser for its actual out of pocket costs incurred in connection with this Agreement or the Property including, but not limited to, the negotiation of this Agreement, Purchaser’s due diligence with respect to the Property, Purchaser’s financing with respect to the Property (including, but not limited to, good faith deposits, commitment fees, and costs of hedging and other rate lock contracts), and all of Purchaser’s legal fees and expenses related thereto, not to exceed, however, $250,000 with respect to this Agreement and the Other Property Agreements in the aggregate.
(b)
    If, prior to the Closing, Purchaser shall deliver a written notice to Sellers asserting a breach of any representation or any warranty of Sellers (which constitutes a Material Breach) that was not true and correct in all material respects on the Effective Date, or that otherwise no longer remains true and correct in all material respects (and which is not the result of an Authorized Qualification) due to any fact or event caused by any Seller or any of the Seller Released Parties, then Purchaser may, as its sole and exclusive remedy, upon the delivery of written notice of such breach to Sellers either (i) proceed to close the purchase of the Property with a credit against the Purchase Price in an amount of the damage (including, but not limited to, indirect, consequential and speculative damages) as reasonably determined by Purchaser in such written notice, such amount to be not more than $500,000 on account of such asserted breach (and with no liability to Sellers beyond such credit) and, upon receipt of such credit at Closing, to waive any claims against Sellers for such Claims with respect to such Material Breach or (ii) terminate this Agreement by the giving of the written notice to Sellers of same. If Purchaser has elected to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.9(b)(ii) above, Purchaser shall receive a refund of the Earnest Money Deposit, and Sellers shall be obligated to promptly reimburse Purchaser for its actual out of pocket costs incurred in connection with this Agreement and the Other Property Agreements (as defined below) or the Property and the Other Properties (as defined below) including, but not limited to, the negotiation of this Agreement and the Other Property Agreements, Purchaser’s due diligence with respect to the Property and the Other Properties, Purchaser’s financing with respect to the Property and the Other Properties (including, but not limited to, good faith deposits, commitment fees, and costs of hedging and other rate lock contracts), and all of Purchaser’s legal fees and expenses related thereto, not to exceed, however, $700,000 with respect to this Agreement and the Other Property Agreements in the aggregate.
Section 10.10
    General Conditions Precedent to Sellers’ Obligations Regarding the Closing. In addition to the conditions to Sellers’ obligations set forth in this Article X, the obligations and liabilities of Sellers hereunder to close the transaction hereunder shall in all respects be conditioned upon the satisfaction of each of the following conditions, any of which may be waived by written notice from Sellers to Purchaser and all of which shall be deemed waived upon Closing:
(a)
    Purchaser shall have complied in all material respects with and otherwise

-46-




performed in all material respects each of the covenants and obligations of Purchaser set forth in Section 10.2 of this Agreement, as of the Closing Date.
(b)
    The representations and warranties of Purchaser made in Section 8.2 shall be true and correct in all material respects.
Section 10.11
    Condition Precedent to Closing. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein (but subject to Sections 9.1 and 9.3 hereof), it shall be a condition to each party’s obligation to close the sale of the Property, that a closing occur simultaneously with the Closing with respect to (i) Oak Park Village and Champions Village in Texas, (ii) Heritage Station in North Carolina, and (iii) Shoppes at Parkland and University Palms in Florida (collectively, the “Other Properties”), which Other Properties are the subject to Agreements of Purchase and Sale by and between Affiliates of Sellers, as seller, and Purchaser, as purchaser (the “Other Property Agreements”), the parties hereto acknowledging that the Property is being sold as a part of the portfolio containing the Property and the Other Properties and the parties do not intend to sell or purchase the Property or any of the Other Properties as individual assets; provided, however, that (1) if the affiliate of Seller which is the seller under the Other Property Agreement for the Texas assets duly exercises its right to terminate such Other Property Agreement with respect to Champions Village pursuant to Section 10.13 thereof (such termination, the “Champions 10.13 Termination”), or (2) the “Closing Date” of the sale of Champions Village is scheduled to occur following the Closing Date hereunder pursuant to the terms of the Other Property Agreement for Champions Village, then the closing of the sale of Champions Village shall not be a condition to the Closing of the sale of the Property. Sellers intend that the sale of the Property, together with the sale of the Other Properties by Affiliates of Sellers constitute the sale of property to one buyer as part of one transaction within the meaning of Section 857(b)(6)(E)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Furthermore, if either party exercises any right to terminate this Agreement in accordance herewith, such party (or its applicable Affiliate) shall simultaneously terminate each of the Other Property Agreements (if such Other Property Agreements are not terminated by their terms), and the earnest money deposits held under such Other Property Agreements shall be delivered to the party (or its applicable Affiliate) entitled to receive same hereunder. Seller and Purchaser hereby agree that the exercise of a right to terminate under any of the Other Property Agreements shall automatically terminate this Agreement, and the Earnest Money Deposit shall be delivered to the party hereunder who is entitled to receive (or whose applicable Affiliate is entitled to receive) same under such terminated Other Property Agreement; provided, however, that the exercise of the Champions 10.13 Termination shall not cause the termination of this Agreement. Further, a default under any of the Other Property Agreements shall constitute a default under this Agreement and Seller and Purchaser shall have all rights and remedies provided hereunder as if such default had occurred with respect to this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided in this Agreement, (x) if Closing is extended pursuant to the express terms of this Agreement, such party (or its applicable Affiliate) shall simultaneously be deemed to agree to extend the closing under each of the Other Property Agreements for the same number of days as the Closing is extended hereunder (if closing under such Other Property Agreements is not automatically extended for the same number of days by their terms), and (y) Seller and Purchaser hereby agree that the extension

-47-




of closing under any of the Other Property Agreements shall automatically extend the Closing under this Agreement for the same number of days as the closing is extended under any of the Other Property Agreements.
Section 10.12
    Failure of Condition. If any condition precedent to Sellers’ obligation to effect the Closing (as set forth in Section 10.10) is not satisfied, then Sellers shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement by notice thereof to Purchaser and Title Company. Subject to Section 10.9, if any condition precedent to Purchaser’s obligation to effect the Closing (as set forth in Section 10.8) is not satisfied by the Closing Date, then Purchaser shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement by notice thereof to Sellers and Title Company. If the condition precedent to each party’s obligation to effect the Closing (as set forth in Section 10.11) is not satisfied, then either party shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement by notice thereof to the other party and the Title Company (if this Agreement is not terminated by its terms). If this Agreement is so terminated, then Purchaser shall be entitled to receive the Earnest Money Deposit (and all accrued interest thereon) and no party shall have any further obligations hereunder, except for Termination Surviving Obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the applicable conditions precedent are not satisfied due to a default by Sellers or Purchaser hereunder, then Article XIII shall govern and this Section 10.12 shall not apply.
ARTICLE XI
    
BROKERAGE
Section 11.1
    Brokers. Sellers agree to pay to CBRE (“Broker”) a real estate commission at Closing (but only in the event of Closing in strict compliance with this Agreement) pursuant to a separate agreement. Broker acknowledges that the payment of the commission by Sellers to Broker will fully satisfy the obligations of the Sellers for the payment of a real estate commission hereunder. Other than as stated in the first sentence of this Section 11.1, Purchaser and Sellers represent and warrant to the other that no real estate brokers, agents or finders’ fees or commissions are due or will be due or arise in conjunction with the execution of this Agreement or consummation of this transaction by reason of the acts of such party, and Purchaser and Sellers will indemnify, defend and hold the other party harmless from any brokerage or finder’s fee or commission claimed by any person asserting his entitlement thereto at the alleged instigation of the indemnifying party for or on account of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. The provisions of this Article XI will survive any Closing or termination of this Agreement.
ARTICLE XII
    
CONFIDENTIALITY
Section 12.1
    Confidentiality. Sellers and Purchaser each expressly acknowledge and agree that, unless and until the Closing occurs, this Agreement, the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and the terms, conditions, and negotiations concerning the same will be held in

-48-




confidence by Sellers and Purchaser and will not be disclosed by Sellers or Purchaser except to their respective legal counsel, accountants, consultants, officers, prospective investors, prospective lender, clients, partners, directors, and shareholders, and except and only to the extent that such disclosure may be necessary for their respective performances hereunder or as otherwise required by applicable law; provided, however, that notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided in this Agreement, Purchaser shall have the right to release a press notice containing such information as Purchaser is required to include in its filing of Form 8-K with the SEC reporting the entry of a “Material Definitive Agreement” following the full execution of this Agreement. Purchaser further acknowledges and agrees that, until the Closing occurs, all information obtained by Purchaser in connection with the Property will not be disclosed by Purchaser to any third persons other than those described above without the prior written consent of Sellers. Nothing contained in this Article XII will preclude or limit any party to this Agreement from disclosing or accessing any information otherwise deemed confidential under this Article XII in connection with that party’s enforcement of its rights following a disagreement hereunder, or in response to lawful process or subpoena or other valid or enforceable order of a court of competent jurisdiction or any filings with governmental authorities required by reason of the transactions provided for herein pursuant to an opinion of counsel; provided, however, in the event such disclosure is required pursuant to a subpoena or court order, the applicable party shall promptly notify the other party thereof so that the other party may seek a protective order, waive compliance with this Article XII, and/or take any other action mutually agreed upon by the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, Sellers and Purchaser acknowledge and agree that Sellers and Purchaser, and entities which directly or indirectly own the equity interests in Sellers or Purchaser, may disclose in press releases, SEC and other filings and governmental authorities, financial statements and/or other communications such information regarding the transactions contemplated hereby and any such information relating to the sale, acquisition and financing of the Property as may be necessary or advisable under federal or state securities law, rules or regulations (including U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules and regulations, “generally accepted accounting principles” or other accounting rules or procedures or in accordance with Sellers and Purchaser and such direct or indirect owners’ prior custom, practice or procedure. One or more of such owners will be required to publicly disclose the possible transactions contemplated hereby and file this Agreement with the SEC promptly after the execution of the same by both parties or as sooner required by law. Additionally, notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided in this Agreement, Sellers hereby agree to reasonably cooperate with Purchaser (at no third party cost to Sellers) during the term of this Agreement in the preparation by Purchaser and its advisors, at Purchaser’s sole cost and expense, of audited financial statements of the Property for the most recent completed fiscal year of Seller and the current fiscal year-to-date that comply with Form 8-K filing requirements and Rule 3-14 of Regulation S-X, both as promulgated by the SEC, including current and historical operating statements and information regarding the Property. The provisions of this Article XII will survive any termination of this Agreement.
ARTICLE XIII
    
REMEDIES

-49-




Section 13.1
    Default by Sellers.
Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, if Closing of the purchase and sale transaction provided for herein does not occur as herein provided by reason of any default of Sellers, Purchaser may, as Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedies, elect by written notice to Sellers within five (5) Business Days following the scheduled Closing Date, to either (a) terminate this Agreement, in which event Sellers shall be obligated to promptly reimburse Purchaser for its actual out of pocket costs incurred in connection with this Agreement or the Property including, but not limited to, the negotiation of this Agreement, Purchaser’s due diligence with respect to the Property, Purchaser’s financing with respect to the Property (including, but not limited to, good faith deposits, commitment fees, and costs of hedging and other rate lock contracts), and all of Purchaser’s legal fees and expenses related thereto, not to exceed, however, $700,000.00 with respect to this Agreement and the Other Property Agreements in the aggregate, and Purchaser shall receive from the Title Company the Earnest Money Deposit, whereupon Sellers and Purchaser will have no further rights or obligations under this Agreement, except with respect to the Termination Surviving Obligations, or (b) pursue specific performance of this Agreement, so long as any action or proceeding commenced by Purchaser against Sellers shall be filed and served within thirty (30) days of the scheduled Closing Date, and, in either event, Purchaser hereby waives all other remedies, including without limitation, any claim against Sellers for damages of any type or kind including, without limitation, consequential or punitive damages. Unless otherwise expressly required pursuant to this Agreement, in no event shall Sellers be obligated to undertake any of the following (A) change the condition of the Property or restore the same after any fire or casualty; (B) expend money or post a bond to remove or insure over anything other than a Must-Cure Matter or to correct any matter shown on a survey of the Property; (C) secure any permit with respect to the Property or Sellers’ conveyance thereof; or (D) expend any money to repair, improve or alter the Improvements or any portion thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section 13.1 will limit Purchaser’s remedies at law, in equity or as herein provided in the event of a breach by Sellers of any of the Closing Surviving Obligations after Closing or the Termination Surviving Obligations after termination, subject to the terms and provisions of this Agreement.
Section 13.2
    DEFAULT BY PURCHASER. IN THE EVENT THE CLOSING AND THE CONSUMMATION OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREIN DO NOT OCCUR AS PROVIDED HEREIN (TIME BEING OF THE ESSENCE) BY REASON OF ANY DEFAULT OF PURCHASER, PURCHASER AND SELLERS AGREE IT WOULD BE IMPRACTICAL AND EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIX THE DAMAGES WHICH SELLERS MAY SUFFER. PURCHASER AND SELLERS HEREBY AGREE THAT (i) AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE EARNEST MONEY DEPOSIT, TOGETHER WITH ALL INTEREST ACCRUED THEREON, IS A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF THE TOTAL NET DETRIMENT SELLERS WOULD SUFFER IN THE EVENT PURCHASER DEFAULTS AND FAILS TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE OF THE PROPERTY, AND (ii) SUCH AMOUNT SHALL BE PAID TO SELLERS AND WILL BE THE FULL, AGREED AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR PURCHASER’S DEFAULT AND FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE OF THE PROPERTY PURSUANT TO O.C.G.A. SECTION 13-6-7, AND WILL BE SELLERS’ SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY (WHETHER

-50-




AT LAW OR IN EQUITY) FOR ANY DEFAULT OF PURCHASER RESULTING IN THE FAILURE OF CONSUMMATION OF THE CLOSING, WHEREUPON THIS AGREEMENT WILL TERMINATE AND SELLERS AND PURCHASER WILL HAVE NO FURTHER RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO THE TERMINATION SURVIVING OBLIGATIONS. PURCHASER HEREBY WAIVES AND RELEASES ANY RIGHT TO (AND HEREBY COVENANTS THAT IS SHALL NOT) SUE SELLERS OR SEEK OR CLAIM A REFUND OF THE EARNEST MONEY DEPOSIT, OR ANY INTEREST ACCRUED THEREON, ON THE GROUNDS IT IS UNREASONABLE IN AMOUNT AND EXCEEDS SELLERS’ ACTUAL DAMAGES OR THAT ITS RETENTION BY SELLERS CONSTITUTES A PENALTY AND NOT AGREED UPON AND REASONABLE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES AS PERMITTED UNDER O.C.G.A. SECTION 13-6-7. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, NOTHING CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION 13.2 HEREIN WILL LIMIT SELLERS’ REMEDIES AT LAW, IN EQUITY OR AS HEREIN PROVIDED IN THE EVENT OF A BREACH BY PURCHASER OF ANY OF THE CLOSING SURVIVING OBLIGATIONS OR THE TERMINATION SURVIVING OBLIGATIONS.
Section 13.3
    Consequential and Punitive Damages. Sellers and Purchaser each waive any right to sue the other for any consequential or punitive damages for matters arising under this Agreement (it being understood that Sellers and Purchaser each have waived the right to obtain incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages in connection with any default of Purchaser or Sellers respectively, or otherwise, which, in the case of Purchaser, include, without limitation, loss of profits or inability to secure lenders, investors or buyers). This Section 13.3 shall survive Closing or termination of this Agreement.
ARTICLE XIV
    
NOTICES
Section 14.1
    Notices. All notices or other communications required or permitted hereunder will be in writing, and will be given by (a) personal delivery, or (b) professional expedited delivery service with proof of delivery, or (c) electronic mail (received upon the sender’s receipt of an acknowledgement from the intended recipient (such as by the “return receipt requested” function, as available, return e-mail or other written acknowledgement), sent to the intended addressee at the address set forth below, or to such other address or to the attention of such other person as the addressee will have designated by written notice sent in accordance herewith and will be deemed to have been given either at the time of personal delivery, or, in the case of expedited delivery service, as of the date of first attempted delivery on a Business Day at the address or in the manner provided herein, or, in the case of electronic mail transmission, upon receipt if on a Business Day and, if not on a Business Day, on the next Business Day.

ARTICLE XV
    
ASSIGNMENT AND BINDING EFFECT
Section 15.1
    Assignment; Binding Effect. Purchaser will not have the right to assign this Agreement without Sellers’ prior written consent, to be given or withheld in Sellers’ sole and absolute discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser may assign its rights under this Agreement to wholly-owned (directly or indirectly) and controlled Affiliates of such assigning party without the consent of the non-assigning party, provided that any such assignment does not relieve the assigning party of its obligations hereunder, and provided that the wholly-owned (directly or indirectly) and controlled Affiliates are disregarded as an entity separate from Purchaser for federal income tax purposes within the meaning of Section 301.7701-3 of the Treasury Regulations under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, at all times from such assignment through and including the Closing. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Sellers and Purchaser and their respective successors and permitted assigns, and no other party will be conferred any rights by virtue of this Agreement or be entitled to enforce any of the provisions hereof. Whenever a reference is made in this Agreement to Sellers or Purchaser, such reference will include the successors and permitted assigns of such party under this Agreement.

ARTICLE XVI
    
PROCEDURE FOR INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITED SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
Section 16.1
    Survival of Representations, Warranties and Covenants.
(a)
    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the representations, warranties and covenants of Sellers set forth in this Agreement and Sellers’ liability under any provision of this Agreement, and under any Closing Document (as defined below), will survive the Closing for a period ending on November 30, 2016; provided however, that if Purchaser delivers written notice(s) to Seller(s) of a breach of a representation, warranty or covenant of Seller(s) prior to the expiration of such period (such notice[s] being collectively referred to herein as a “Breach Notice”), those representations, warranties and/or covenants referenced in such Breach Notice(s) shall survive beyond such period until conclusively and finally resolved by Purchaser and Seller including, if applicable, the resolution of any litigation beyond any applicable appeals periods (such period ending on November 30, 2016, as same may be extended by the terms hereof, the “Seller Survival Period”). Purchaser shall not have any right to bring any action for monetary damages against such Seller as a result of (i) any untruth, inaccuracy or breach of such representations and warranties under this Agreement, or any Closing Document, or (ii) the failure of Sellers to perform their obligations under any other provision of this Agreement, or under any other document or agreement executed in connection with this Agreement, including all documents and agreements executed at Closing (“Closing Documents”), unless and until the aggregate amount of all liability and losses arising out of all such untruths, inaccuracies, breaches and failures (including Seller’s liability for attorneys’ fees and costs due to Purchaser) exceeds $100,000. In addition, in no event will Sellers’ liability for all such untruths, inaccuracies, breaches, and/or failures under Sections 8.1, any other provision of this Agreement, or under any Closing Documents (including Seller’s liability for attorneys’ fees and costs in connection with such untruths, inaccuracies, breaches and/or failures) exceed, in the aggregate, one percent (1%) of the Purchase Price. In order to secure Sellers’ obligations set forth in this Section 16.1(a), Sellers shall cause Hines Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc., a Maryland corporation, (“Guarantor”), to execute and deliver a guaranty in favor of Purchasers guaranteeing Sellers’ obligations under this Section 16.1(a) for the duration of the Survival Period (the “Guaranty”).
(b)
    Sellers shall have no liability to Purchaser following Closing with respect to any specific representation, warranty or covenant of Sellers herein if, prior to the Closing, Purchaser has actual knowledge of such specific breach of a representation, warranty or covenant of Sellers herein (from whatever source, including, without limitation, any tenant estoppel certificates, as a result of Purchaser’s review of the Due Diligence Items and its due diligence tests, investigations and inspections of the Property, or written disclosure by Sellers or Sellers’ agents and employees), that contradicts any of Sellers’ representations, warranties or covenants herein, and Purchaser nevertheless consummates the transaction contemplated by this Agreement.

-54-




(c)
    The Closing Surviving Obligations will survive Closing without limitation unless a specified period is otherwise provided in this Agreement. All other representations, warranties, covenants and agreements made or undertaken by Sellers or Purchaser under this Agreement, unless otherwise specifically provided herein, will not survive the Closing Date but will be merged into the Closing Documents delivered at the Closing. The Termination Surviving Obligations shall survive termination of this Agreement without limitation unless a specified period is otherwise provided in this Agreement. The limitations on Sellers’ liability contained in this Article XVI are in addition to, and not limitation of, any limitation on liability provided elsewhere in this Agreement or by law or any other contract, agreement or instrument.
ARTICLE XVII
    
MISCELLANEOUS
Section 17.1
    Waivers; Amendments. No waiver of any breach of any covenant or provisions contained herein will be deemed a waiver of any preceding or succeeding breach thereof, or of any other covenant or provision contained herein. No extension of time for performance of any obligation or act will be deemed an extension of the time for performance of any other obligation or act. This Agreement may not be amended except in a writing signed by both Sellers and Purchaser.
Section 17.2
    Recovery of Certain Fees. In the event a party hereto files any action or suit against another party hereto by reason of any breach of any of the covenants, agreements or provisions contained in this Agreement, then in that event the prevailing party will be entitled to have and recover of and from the other party all attorneys’ fees and costs resulting therefrom. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “attorneys’ fees” or “attorneys’ fees and costs” shall mean all court costs and the fees and expenses of counsel to the parties hereto, which may include printing, photostatting, duplicating and other expenses, air freight charges, and fees billed for law clerks, paralegals and other persons not admitted to the bar but performing services under the supervision of an attorney, and the costs and fees incurred in connection with the enforcement or collection of any judgment obtained in any such proceeding. The provisions of this Section 17.2 shall survive the entry of any judgment, and shall not merge, or be deemed to have merged, into any judgment.
Section 17.3
    Time of Essence. Sellers and Purchaser hereby acknowledge and agree that time is strictly of the essence with respect to each and every term, condition, obligation and provision hereof. Without limiting the foregoing, Purchaser and Seller acknowledge that, except as expressly provided in this Agreement, neither party has any, right to extend the Closing Date.
Section 17.4
    Construction. Headings at the beginning of each article and section are solely for the convenience of the parties and are not a part of this Agreement. Whenever required by the context of this Agreement, the singular will include the plural and the masculine will include the feminine and vice versa. This Agreement will not be construed as if it had been prepared by one

-55-




of the parties, but rather as if both parties had prepared the same. All exhibits and schedules referred to in this Agreement are attached and incorporated by this reference, and any capitalized term used in any exhibit or schedule which is not defined in such exhibit or schedule will have the meaning attributable to such term in the body of this Agreement. In the event the date on which Purchaser or Sellers are required to take any action under the terms of this Agreement is not a Business Day, the action will be taken on the next succeeding Business Day.
Section 17.5
    Counterparts; Electronic Signatures Binding. To facilitate execution of this Agreement, this Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts, each of which, when assembled to include an original, faxed or electronic mail (in .PDF or similar file) signature for each party contemplated to sign this Agreement, will constitute a complete and fully executed agreement. All such fully executed original, faxed or electronic mail (in .PDF or similar file) counterparts will collectively constitute a single agreement, and such signatures shall be legally binding upon the party sending the signature by such electronic means immediately upon being sent by such party.
Section 17.6
    Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy, all of the other conditions and provisions of this Agreement will nevertheless remain in full force and effect, so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any adverse manner to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto will negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to reflect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that the transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the extent possible.
Section 17.7
    Entire Agreement. This Agreement is the final expression of, and contains the entire agreement between, the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior understandings (oral or written) with respect thereto. This Agreement may not be modified, changed, supplemented or terminated, nor may any obligations hereunder be waived, except by written instrument, signed by the party to be charged or by its agent duly authorized in writing, or as otherwise expressly permitted herein.
Section 17.8
    Governing Law and Venue. THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE CONSTRUED, PERFORMED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE IN WHICH THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT ANY ACTION IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE BROUGHT AND MAINTAINED IN THE STATE OR FEDERAL COURTS THAT ARE SEATED IN THE CITY AND COUNTY IN WHICH ANY REAL PROPERTY IS LOCATED, AND THE PARTIES HEREBY CONSENT AND AGREE TO THE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS.

-56-




Section 17.9
    No Recording. The parties hereto agree that neither this Agreement nor any affidavit concerning it will be recorded.
Section 17.10
    Further Actions. The parties agree to execute such instructions to the Title Company and such other instruments and to do such further acts as may be reasonably necessary to carry out the provisions of this Agreement.
Section 17.11
    No Other Inducements. The making, execution and delivery of this Agreement by the parties hereto have been induced by no representations, statements, warranties or agreements other than those expressly set forth herein.
Section 17.12
    Exhibits. Exhibits A through K, inclusive, are incorporated herein by reference.
Section 17.13
    No Partnership. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, this Agreement shall not be deemed or construed to make the parties hereto partners or joint venturers, it being the intention of the parties to merely create the relationship of Sellers and Purchaser with respect to the Property to be conveyed as contemplated hereby.
Section 17.14
    Limitations on Benefits. It is the explicit intention of Purchaser and Sellers that no person or entity other than Purchaser and Sellers and their permitted successors and assigns is or shall be entitled to bring any action to enforce any provision of this Agreement against any of the parties hereto, and the covenants, undertakings and agreements set forth in this Agreement shall be solely for the benefit of, and shall be enforceable only by, Purchaser and Sellers or their respective successors and assigns as permitted hereunder. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall under any circumstances whatsoever be deemed or construed, or be interpreted, as making any third party (including, without limitation, Broker or any Tenant) a beneficiary of any term or provision of this Agreement or any instrument or document delivered pursuant hereto, and Purchaser and Sellers expressly reject any such intent, construction or interpretation of this Agreement.
Section 17.15
    Exculpation. In no event whatsoever shall recourse be had or liability asserted against any of Sellers’ or Purchaser’s partners, members, shareholders, employees, agents, directors, officers or other owners of Sellers or Purchaser or their respective constituent members, partners, shareholders, employees, agents directors, officers or other owners. Sellers’ and Purchaser’s direct and indirect shareholders, partners, members, beneficiaries and owners and their respective trustees, officers, directors, employees, agents and security holders, assume no personal liability for any obligations entered into on behalf of Sellers or Purchaser under this Agreement and the Closing Documents.

-57-




Section 17.16
    Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HERETO KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY DISPUTE ARISING UNDER OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE THAT ANY SUCH DISPUTE SHALL BE TRIED BEFORE A JUDGE SITTING WITHOUT A JURY.
