- 10 -
(a) Asset Management Fee. The Operating LLC shall pay to the Manager as compensation
for the services rendered to the Company hereunder an amount equal to 0.50% percent per annum of
the Adjusted Invested Assets of the Company (the Asset Management Fee) calculated as set

one percent of the Adjusted Invested Assets for that month, computed as a daily average. The Asset
Management Fee shall be prorated for the number of days during the month that the Company owns an
(b) Loan Refinancing Fee. The Company shall pay to the Manager for all qualifying
loan refinancings of Properties a loan refinancing fee in the amount up to one percent of the
principal amount of the refinanced loan (the Loan Refinancing Fee). Any Loan Refinancing
Fee shall be due and payable upon the funding of the related loan or as soon thereafter as is
reasonably practicable. A refinancing will qualify for a Loan Refinancing Fee only if the
refinanced loan is secured by Property and (i) the maturity date of the refinanced loan (which must
have a term of five years or more) is less than one year from the date of the refinancing; or (ii)
the terms of the new loan represent, in the judgment of a majority of the Independent Directors, an
improvement over the terms of the refinanced loan; or (iii) the new loan is approved by the Board,
including a majority of the Independent Directors and, in each case, the Loan Refinancing Fee is
found, in the judgment of a majority of the Independent Directors, to be in the best interest of
(c) Property Management Fee. No Property Management Fee shall be paid unless approved
by a majority of the Independent Directors.
(d) Subordinated Disposition Fee. If the Manager provides a substantial amount of
services in the sale of a Property or Loan, the Manager shall receive a fee equal to the lesser of:
(i) 50% of the Competitive Real Estate Commission and (ii) three percent of the Contract Sales
Price of such Property (the Subordinated Disposition Fee). The Subordinated Disposition
Fee will be paid only if Shareholders have received in the aggregate a return of 100% of Initial
Investor Capital (through liquidity or Distributions) plus a Preferred Return through the end of
the fiscal quarter immediately preceding the date the Subordination Disposition Fee is paid. The
return requirement will be deemed satisfied if the total Distributions paid by the Company have
satisfied the Preferred Return requirement and the Market Value of the Company equals or exceeds
Adjusted Investor Capital. To the extent that Subordinated Disposition Fees are not paid by the
Company on a current basis due to the foregoing limitation, the unpaid fees will be due and paid at
such time as the limitation has been satisfied. The Subordinated Disposition Fee may be paid in
addition to real estate commissions paid to non-Affiliates, provided that the total of all real
estate commissions in respect of a Property paid to all Persons by the Company and the Subordinated
Disposition Fee shall not exceed an amount equal to the lesser of: (i) six percent of the Contract
Sales Price of such Property or (ii) the
Competitive Real Estate Commission. The Manager shall present to the Independent Directors
such information as they may reasonably request to review the level of services provided by the
Manager in connection with a disposition and the basis for the calculation of the amount of the
accrued Subordinated Disposition Fees on an annual basis. The amount of any accrued Subordinated
Disposition Fee shall be deemed conclusively established once it has been
- 11 -
approved by the
Independent Directors, absent a subsequent finding of error. No payment of Subordinated Disposition
Fees shall be made prior to review and approval of such information by the Independent Directors.
If this Agreement is terminated prior to such time as the Shareholders have received (through
liquidity or Distributions) a return of 100% of Initial Investor Capital plus a Preferred Return
through the date of termination of this Agreement, an appraisal of the Properties then owned by the
Company shall be made and any unpaid Subordinated Disposition Fee on Properties sold prior to the
date of termination will be payable if the Appraised Value of the Properties then owned by the
Company plus Distributions to Shareholders prior to the date of termination of this Agreement
(through liquidity or Distributions) is equal to or greater than 100% of Initial Investor Capital
plus an amount sufficient to pay a Preferred Return through the date of termination of this
Agreement. If the Companys Shares are listed on a national securities exchange or included for
quotation in an electronic trading system and, at the time of such listing, the Manager has
provided a substantial amount of services in the sale of Property, for purposes of determining
whether the subordination conditions for the payment of the Subordinated Disposition Fee have been
satisfied, Shareholders will be deemed to have received a Distribution in an amount equal to the
Market Value of the Company.
(e) Loans From Affiliates. The Company shall not borrow funds from the Manager or its
Affiliates unless (A) the transaction is approved by a majority of the Independent Directors and a
majority of the Directors who are not interested in the transaction as being fair, competitive and
commercially reasonable, (B) the interest and other financing charges or fees received by the
Manager or its Affiliates do not exceed the amount which would be charged by non-affiliated lending
institutions and (C) the terms are not less favorable than those prevailing for comparable
arms-length loans for the same purpose. The Company will not borrow on a long-term basis from the
Manager or its Affiliates unless it is to provide the debt portion of a particular investment and
the Company is unable to obtain a permanent loan at that time or in the judgment of the Board, it
is not in the Companys best interest to obtain a permanent loan at the interest rates then
prevailing and the Board has reason to believe that the Company will be able to obtain a permanent
loan on or prior to the end of the loan term provided by the Manager or its Affiliates.
(f) Changes To Fee Structure. In the event the Shares are listed on a national
securities exchange or are included for quotation on Nasdaq, the Company and the Manager shall
negotiate in good faith to establish a fee structure appropriate for an entity with a perpetual
life. A majority of the Independent Directors must approve the new fee structure negotiated with
the Manager. In negotiating a new fee structure, the Independent Directors may consider any of the
factors they deem relevant, including but not limited to: (a) the size of the Asset Management Fee
in relation to the size, composition and profitability of the Companys portfolio; (b) the rates
charged to other REITs and to investors other than REITs by Managers performing similar services;
(c) additional revenues realized by the Manager and its Affiliates through their relationship with
the Company, including loan administration, underwriting or broker
commissions, servicing, engineering, inspection and other fees, whether paid by the Company or
by others with whom the Company does business; (d) the quality and extent of service furnished by
the Manager; (e) the performance of the investment portfolio of the Company,
conversion or appreciation of capital, frequency of problem investments and competence in dealing
with distress situations and (f) the quality of the portfolio of the Company
- 12 -
in relationship to the
portfolio of real properties owned and managed by W.P. Carey & Co. LLC for its own account. The
new fee structure can be no more favorable to the Manager than the current fee structure. The
Independent Directors shall not approve any new fee structure that is in their judgment more
favorable (taken as a whole) to the Manager than the current fee structure.
(g) Payment. Compensation payable pursuant to this Section 9 shall be paid directly
to the Manager; provided, however, that any fee payable pursuant to Section 9 may
be paid, at the option of the Manager, in the form of: (i) cash, (ii) common stock of the Company,
or (iii) a combination of cash and common stock. The Manager shall notify the Company in writing
annually of the form in which the fee shall be paid. Such notice shall be provided no later than
December 31 of the year prior to the year to which such election applies. If no such notice is
provided, the fee shall be paid in cash. For purposes of the payment of compensation to the
Manager in the form of stock, the value of each share of common stock shall be: (i) the Net Asset
Value per Share as determined by the most recent appraisal of the Companys assets performed by an
Independent Appraiser, or (ii) if an appraisal has not yet been performed, $10 per share. If
shares are being offered to the public at the time a fee is paid with stock, the value shall be the
price of the stock without commissions. The Net Asset Value determined on the basis of such

for the following expenses:
(i) interest and other costs for borrowed money, including discounts, points and other
(ii) taxes and assessments on income of the Company, to the extent paid or advanced by

(iii) expenses of managing and operating Properties, whether payable to an Affiliate of
the Manager or a non-affiliated Person;
(iv) fees and expenses of legal counsel for the Company attributable to Properties;

upon the compensation of the
Persons involved and an appropriate share of overhead allocable to those Persons as
reasonably determined by the Manager on a basis approved annually by the Board (including a
majority of the Independent Directors).
No reimbursement shall be made for the cost of personnel to the extent that such personnel are used
in transactions for which the Manager receives a separate fee.
Expenses incurred by the Manager on behalf of the Company and payable pursuant to this Section 10
shall be reimbursed quarterly to the Manager within 60 days after the end of each quarter, subject
to the provisions of Section 13 hereof. The Manager shall prepare a statement documenting the
Operating Expenses of the Company within 45 days after the end of each quarter.
11. Other Services. Should the Board request that the Manager or any partner or
employee thereof render services for the Company other than as set forth in Section 3 hereof, such
services shall be separately compensated and shall not be deemed to be services pursuant to the
terms of this Agreement.
12. Fidelity Bond. The Manager shall maintain a fidelity bond for the benefit of the
Company which bond shall insure the Company from losses of up to $5,000,000 and shall be of the
type customarily purchased by entities performing services similar to those provided to the Company
by the Manager.
13. Limitation on Expenses.
(a) If the aggregate Operating Expenses of the Company under this Agreement and the Advisory
Agreement during the 12-month period ending on the last day of any fiscal quarter of the Company
exceed the greater of (i) two percent of the Average Invested Assets during the same 12-month
period or (ii) 25% of the Adjusted Net Income of the Company during the same 12-month period, then
subject to paragraph (b) of this Section 13, such excess amount shall be the sole responsibility of
the Manager and the Company shall not be liable for payment therefor.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that the Manager becomes responsible for any
such excess amount as provided in paragraph (a), if a majority of the Independent Directors finds
such excess amount or a portion thereof justified based on such unusual and non-recurring factors
as they deem sufficient, the Company shall reimburse the Manager in future quarters for the full
amount of such excess, or any portion thereof, but only to the extent such reimbursement would not
cause the Companys Operating Expenses to exceed the Two Percent/25% Guidelines in the 12-month
period ending on any such quarter. In no
event shall the Operating Expenses paid by the Company in any 12-month period ending at the
end of a fiscal quarter exceed the Two Percent/25% Guidelines.
(c) Within 60 days after the end of any twelve-month period referred to in paragraph (a), the
Manager shall reimburse the Company for any amounts expended by the Company in such twelve-month
period that exceeds the limitations provided in paragraph (a) unless the Independent Directors
determine that such excess expenses are justified, as provided in paragraph (b), and provided the
aggregate Operating Expenses under this Agreement and the
- 14 -
Advisory Agreement for such later quarter
would not thereby exceed the Two Percent/25% Guidelines. To the extent the Company is reimbursed
for such excess expenses by the Advisor, the Company shall not also be entitled to reimbursement
for such excess from the Manager.
(d) All computations made under paragraphs (a) and (b) of this Section 13 shall be determined
in accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis.
14. Other Activities of the Manager. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the
Manager from engaging in other activities, including without limitation direct investment by the
Manager and its Affiliates in assets that would be suitable for the Company, the rendering of
services to other investors (including other REITs) and the management of other programs advised,
sponsored or organized by the Manager or its Affiliates; nor shall this Agreement limit or restrict
the right of the Manager or any of its Affiliates or of any director, officer, employee, partner or
shareholder of the Manager or its Affiliates to engage in any other business or to render services
of any kind to any other partnership, corporation, firm, individual, trust or association. The
Manager may, with respect to any investment in which the Company is a participant, also render
service to each other participant therein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the
Company acknowledges that the Manager provides or will provide services to other Corporate
Property Associates or CPA® REIT funds, whether now in existence or formed hereafter, and that the
Manager and its Affiliates may invest for their own account. The Manager shall be responsible for
promptly reporting to the Board the existence of any actual or potential conflict of interest that
arises that may affect its performance of its duties under this Agreement.
Neither the Manager nor any Affiliate of the Manager shall be obligated generally to present any
particular investment opportunity to the Company even if the opportunity is of a character which,
if presented to the Company, could be taken by the Company.
15. Relationship of Manager and Company. The Company and the Manager agree that they
have not created and do not intend to create by this Agreement a joint venture or partnership
relationship between them and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to make them partners or
joint venturers or impose any liability as partners or joint venturers on either of them.
16. Term; Termination of Agreement. This Agreement shall continue in force until
September 30, 2011 and thereafter shall be automatically renewed for successive one year periods

Independent Directors), this Agreement may be terminated immediately by written notice of
termination from the Company to the Manager upon the occurrence of events which would constitute
Cause or if any of the following events occur:
(a) If the Manager shall be adjudged bankrupt or insolvent by a court of competent
jurisdiction, or an order shall be made by a court of competent jurisdiction for the
appointment of a receiver, liquidator, or trustee of the Manager, for all or
- 15 -
all of its property by reason of the foregoing, or if a court of competent jurisdiction
approves any petition filed against the Manager for reorganization, and such adjudication or
order shall remain in force or unstayed for a period of 30 days; or
(b) If the Manager shall institute proceedings for voluntary bankruptcy or shall file a
petition seeking reorganization under the federal bankruptcy laws, or for relief under any
law for relief of debtors, or shall consent to the appointment of a receiver for itself or

benefit of its creditors, or shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts,
generally, as they become due.
Any notice of termination under Section 16 or 17 shall be effective on the date specified in
such notice, which may be the day on which such notice is given or any date thereafter. The
Manager agrees that if any of the events specified in Section 17(a) or (b) shall occur, it shall
give written notice thereof to the Board within 15 days after the occurrence of such event.
18. Termination by Either Party. This Agreement may be terminated immediately without
penalty (but subject to the requirements of Section 20 hereof) by the Manager by written notice of
termination to the Company upon the occurrence of events which would constitute Good Reason or by
the Company without cause or penalty (but subject to the requirements of Section 20 hereof) by
action of a majority of the Independent Directors or by action of a majority of the Shareholders,
in either case upon 60 days written notice.
19. Assignment Prohibition. This Agreement may not be assigned by the Manager without
the approval of the Board (including a majority of the Independent Directors); provided, however,
that such approval shall not be required in the case of an assignment to a corporation,
partnership, association, trust or organization which may take over the assets and carry on the
affairs of the Manager, provided: (i) that at the time of such assignment, such successor
organization shall be owned substantially by an entity directly or indirectly controlled by the
Sponsor and only if such entity has a net worth of at least $5,000,000, and (ii) that the board of
directors of the Manager shall deliver to the Board a statement in writing indicating the ownership
structure and net worth of the successor organization and a certification from the new Manager as
to its net worth. Such an assignment shall bind the assignees hereunder in the same manner as the
Manager is bound by this Agreement. The Manager may assign any rights to receive fees or other
payments under this Agreement without obtaining the approval of the Board. This Agreement shall
not be assigned by the Company without the consent of the Manager, except in the case of an
assignment by the Company to a corporation or other organization which is a successor to the
Company, in which case such successor organization
shall be bound hereunder and by the terms of said assignment in the same manner as the Company
is bound by this Agreement.

satisfied, shall be paid within 90 days after the Termination Date. All other amounts payable to
the Manager pursuant to Section 20(a) and Section 20(c) shall be paid in a manner determined by the
Board, but in no event on terms less favorable to the Manager than those represented by a note (i)
maturing upon the liquidation of the Company or three years from the Termination Date, whichever is
earlier, (ii) with no less than twelve equal quarterly installments and (iii) bearing a fair,
competitive and commercially reasonable interest rate (the Note). The Note, if any, may

of the holding period for the respective Investments during which the Manager provided services to
the Company, (ii) shall not be due and payable until the Investment to which such amount relates is
sold or refinanced, and (iii) shall not bear interest until the Investment to which such amount
