3. Section 1.1 of the Existing Loan Agreement is hereby amended as follows:

(a) By deleting in their entirety the definitions of “Permitted Acquisitions”, “Qualified Jointly-Owned Subsidiary” and “Unencumbered NOI”; and

(b) By deleting in their entirety the definitions of “Aggregate Commitments”, “Assets Under Development”, “Capitalization Rate”, “Financeable Ground Lease”, “Non-Stabilized Project” and “Unencumbered Assets” and inserting in lieu thereof the following:

“Aggregate Commitment” means, as of any date, the aggregate of the then-current Commitments of all the Lenders, which is, as of April 23, 2015, $200,000,000.

“Assets Under Development” means, as of any date of determination, all Projects, expansion areas of existing Projects and redevelopments owned by the Consolidated Group and the Investment Affiliates which are then treated as assets under development under GAAP, plus, at Borrower’s option, assets that (A) previously had been Assets Under Development and (B) have been placed in service for less than twelve months, to be valued for purposes of this Agreement, for each Asset Under Development as determined individually, for up to twelve months from the time such asset is no longer treated as an asset under development under GAAP, at either (i) 100% of then-current book value, as determined in accordance with GAAP, (a) for each Asset Under Development owned by members of the Consolidated Group and (b) multiplied by the applicable Consolidated Group Pro Rata Share for an Asset Under Development owned by an Investment Affiliate; or (ii) 100% of the value of such Asset Under Development determined by dividing (x) twelve months of income from signed leases by (y) the Capitalization Rate (I) for each Asset Under Development owned by members of the Consolidated Group and (II) multiplied by the applicable Consolidated Group Pro Rata Share for an Asset Under Development owned by an Investment Affiliate. For purposes of the foregoing, income from signed leases shall be equal to 70% of the revenues payable by the tenant. Once an election of (ii) above is chosen, the asset will continue to be valued under that method until the asset is no longer an Asset Under Development.

“Capitalization Rate” means 6.75%.

“Financeable Ground Lease” means a ground lease that would constitute a financeable ground lease to a prudent institutional lender in the business of making commercial real estate loans and, accordingly, provides protections for a potential leasehold mortgagee (“Mortgagee”) including (i) a remaining term, including any optional extension terms exercisable unilaterally by the tenant, of no less than 20 years from April 23, 2015, (ii) that the ground lease will not be terminated until the Mortgagee has received notice of a default, has had a reasonable opportunity to cure or complete foreclosure, and has failed to do so, (iii) provision for a new lease on the same terms to the Mortgagee as tenant if the ground lease is terminated for any reason, (iv) non-merger of the fee and leasehold estates, (v) transferability of the tenant’s interest under the ground lease without any requirement for consent of the ground lessor unless based on reasonable objective criteria as to the creditworthiness or line of business of the transferee or delivery of customary assignment and assumption agreements from the transferor and transferee, and (vi) that insurance proceeds and condemnation awards (from the fee interest as well as the leasehold interest) will be applied pursuant to the terms of the applicable leasehold mortgage. The Financeable Ground Leases as of April 23, 2015 are listed on Schedule 7 attached hereto and made a part hereof.

“Non-Stabilized Project” means, as of any date of determination, all Projects owned by the Consolidated Group and the Investment Affiliates that have a negative Net Operating Income for the most recently ended period of twelve (12) months, but excluding Acquisition Assets and Assets under Development. A Project may continue to be treated as a Non-Stabilized Project for up to eighteen (18) months from October 20, 2010 or such later date on which such Project becomes a Non-Stabilized Project; thereafter such Project will be valued at zero until such Project generates positive Net Operating Income.

“Unencumbered Asset” means, subject to clauses (a), (b) and (c) below, any Project and any Asset Under Development located in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico or an Acceptable Jurisdiction 100% of which is owned in fee simple, in a condominium structure or ground leased by the Borrower or a Wholly-Owned Subsidiary (provided that a Project which is ground leased shall be included as an Unencumbered Asset only if such ground lease is a Financeable Ground Lease) which, as of any date of determination, is not subject to any Liens, claims, or restrictions on transferability or assignability of any kind (including any such Lien, claim or restriction imposed by the organizational documents of any Subsidiary) other than Permitted Liens set forth in Sections 6.15(i) through 6.15(iv).

(a) No Project or Asset Under Development will be an Unencumbered Asset if Borrower, the owner of such Project or Asset Under Development (an “Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity”) or any Subsidiary that is in the direct chain of ownership between any Borrower and the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity (a “Relevant Subsidiary”) is subject to any agreement (including (i) any

agreement governing Indebtedness and (ii) if applicable, the organizational documents of Borrower, any Relevant Subsidiary or Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity) that prohibits or limits the ability of the Borrower, the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity or any Relevant Subsidiary to create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien upon that Project or Asset Under Development or upon the Capital Stock of the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity, or any Relevant Subsidiary, including, without limitation, any negative pledge or similar covenant or restriction.

(b) No Project or Asset Under Development will be an Unencumbered Asset if the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity or any Relevant Subsidiary is subject to any agreement (including any agreement governing Indebtedness incurred in order to finance or refinance the acquisition of such asset) that entitles any Person to the benefit of any Lien (other than Permitted Liens set forth in Sections 6.15(i) through 6.15(iv)) on any assets or Capital Stock of the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity or any Relevant Subsidiary or would entitle any Person to the benefit of any Lien (other than Permitted Liens set forth in Sections 6.15(i) through 6.15(iv)) on such assets or Capital Stock upon the occurrence of any contingency (including, without limitation, pursuant to an “equal and ratable” clause), except, in each case, for (x) Liens upon the assets of a Multi-Property Entity, provided such assets are not Unencumbered Assets, and (y) Liens on the Capital Stock of Subsidiaries of a Multi-Property Entity that do not directly or indirectly own Unencumbered Assets.

(c) No Project or Asset Under Development will be an Unencumbered Asset unless the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity and each Relevant Subsidiary (to the extent such entity is not a Subsidiary Guarantor) does not have any Indebtedness for borrowed money or any Guarantee Obligations, other than (A) Guarantee Obligations or Indebtedness for which recovery is limited to a Project or Asset Under Development that is not an Unencumbered Asset or the Capital Stock of an entity that owns a Project or Asset Under Development that is not an Unencumbered Asset, or (B) Guarantee Obligations for nonrecourse carveouts, completion guarantees or environmental guarantees provided that the obligations described in this clause (B) shall be permitted only if the Unencumbered Asset Ownership Entity or the Relevant Subsidiary that has the Guarantee Obligation is a Qualified Borrower or has executed a Subsidiary Guaranty.

4. Section 1.1 of the Existing Loan Agreement is hereby amended by inserting the following definitions in the appropriate alphabetical order:

“Major Acquisition” means (a) a single transaction for the purpose of or resulting, directly or indirectly, in the acquisition (including, without limitation, a merger or consolidation or any other combination with another person) by one or more of Borrower and its Subsidiaries of Properties or assets of a Person for a gross purchase price equal to or in excess of 10% of Consolidated Market Value (without giving effect to such acquisition) or (b) one or more transactions for the purpose of or resulting, directly or indirectly, in the acquisition (including, without limitation, a merger or consolidation or any other combination with another Person) by one or more of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries of

6. Section 2.1 of the Existing Loan Agreement is hereby amended by deleting Section 2.1(c) in its entirety and by inserting in lieu thereof the following new Section 2.1(c):

(c) Increase of Commitments. The Borrower may, by written notice to the Administrative Agent on up to four (4) occasions during the period from the Agreement Execution Date to January 17, 2016, request incremental Commitments in an amount not to exceed the aggregate amount of $100,000,000.00 from one or more additional Lenders (which may include any existing Lender) willing to provide such incremental Commitments in their own discretion. The Administrative Agent and/or its Affiliates shall use commercially reasonable efforts, with the assistance of the Borrower, to arrange a syndicate of Lenders willing to hold the requested incremental Commitments. If Lenders are willing to provide such additional Commitments, the Aggregate Commitment may be increased from time to time by the addition of a new Lender(s) or the increase of the Commitment of an existing Lender(s) with the consent of only the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and the new or existing Lender(s) providing such additional Commitment so long as the Aggregate Commitment does not exceed $300,000,000. Nothing in this Section 2.1(c) shall constitute or be deemed to constitute an agreement by any Lender to increase its Commitment hereunder. Any such increase in the Aggregate Commitment shall be conditioned upon the contemporaneous addition of Potential Properties as Subject Properties in accordance with Section 2A.2 to effect compliance with all financial covenants set forth in Section 6.18 immediately following the increase of the Aggregate Commitment and upon satisfaction of

 

5


the requirements for additional Borrowings pursuant to Section 2.9. Such increases shall be evidenced by the execution and delivery of an Amendment Regarding Increase in the form of Exhibit K attached hereto by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the new Lender or existing Lender providing such additional Commitment (the “Increase Notice”), a copy of which shall be forwarded to each Lender by the Administrative Agent promptly after execution thereof. The amount of the requested increase shall be set forth in the Increase Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) no increase in the Aggregate Commitment may occur after January 17, 2016, and (ii) each such increase shall not be less than $25,000,000. On the effective date of each such increase in the Aggregate Commitment, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall cause the new or existing Lenders providing such increase to hold its or their Percentage of all ratable Borrowings outstanding at the close of business on such day, by either funding more than its or their Percentage of new ratable Borrowings made on such date or purchasing shares of outstanding ratable Loans held by the other Lenders or a combination thereof. The Lenders agree to cooperate in any required sale and purchase of outstanding ratable Borrowings to achieve such result. Borrower agrees to pay all fees associated with the increase in the Aggregate Commitment including any amounts due under Section 3.4 in connection with any reallocation of Fixed Rate Borrowings.

7. Section 2.9 of the Existing Loan Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following new Section 2.9:

The Administrative Agent will promptly make the funds so received from the Lenders available to the Borrower at the Administrative Agent’s aforesaid address.

No Interest Period may end after the Maturity Date and, unless the Lenders otherwise agree in writing, in no event may there be more than ten (10) different Interest Periods for Fixed Rate Borrowings outstanding at any one time.”
