Anything else in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the Advisor shall refrain from taking any action which, in its sole judgment made in good faith, would (a) adversely affect the status of the Company as a REIT, (b) subject the Company to regulation under the Investment Company Act, or (c) violate any law, rule, regulation or statement of policy of any governmental body or agency having jurisdiction over the Company or its Shares, or otherwise not be permitted by the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Company, except if such action shall be ordered by the Directors, in which case the Advisor shall notify promptly the Directors of the Advisor’s judgment of the potential impact of such action and shall refrain from taking such action until it receives further clarification or instructions from the Directors. In such event, the Advisor shall have no liability for acting in accordance with the specific instructions of the Directors so given. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Advisor, its directors, officers, employees and members, and partners, directors, officers, members and stockholders of the Advisor’s Affiliates shall not be liable to the Company or to the Directors or Stockholders for any act or omission by the Advisor, its directors, officers, employees, or members, and partners, directors, officers, members or stockholders of the Advisor’s Affiliates taken or omitted to be taken in the performance of their duties under this Agreement except as provided in Section 21 of this Agreement.

  9. RELATIONSHIP WITH DIRECTORS.

Subject to Section 8 of this Agreement and to restrictions advisable with respect to the qualification of the Company as a REIT, directors, managers, officers and employees of the Advisor or an Affiliate of the Advisor or any corporate parent of an Affiliate, may serve as a Director or officer of the Company, except that no director, officer or employee of the Advisor or its Affiliates who also is a Director or officer of the Company shall receive any compensation from the Company for serving as a Director or officer other than (a) reasonable reimbursement for travel and related expenses incurred in attending meetings of the Directors or (b) as otherwise approved by the Board, including a majority of the Independent Directors, and no such Director shall be deemed an Independent Director for purposes of satisfying the Director independence requirement set forth in the Articles of Incorporation. For so long as this Agreement is in effect, the Advisor shall have the right to nominate, subject to the approval of such nomination by the Board, three Affiliated Directors to the slate of Directors to be voted on by the stockholders at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that such number of director nominees shall be reduced as necessary by a number that will result in a majority of the Directors being Independent Directors. Furthermore, the Board shall consult with the Advisor in connection with (i) its selection of each Independent Director for nomination to the slate of Directors to be voted on at the annual meeting of stockholders, and (ii) filling any vacancies created by the removal, resignation, retirement or death of any Director.

 

  10. ADVISORY FEE.

(a) The Advisor is not entitled to acquisition, disposition or financing fees

(b) The Advisor shall receive the Advisory Fee as compensation for services rendered hereunder.

(c) The Advisory Fee will be comprised of two separate components: (1) a fixed component in an amount equal to 1/365th of 1.25% of NAV for each day (the “Fixed Component”); and (2) a performance component (the “Performance Component”) that is paid annually and calculated based on the Annual Total Return allocable to each class of shares of the Company’s common stock.

(d) The Performance Component will not be paid with respect to the Class A Shares, the Class D Shares, Class A-I Shares, the Class M-I Shares or the Class M Shares, each of which is evaluated independently when calculating the Performance Component, for any calendar year in which the Annual Total Return allocable to the applicable class expressed as a percentage is less than or equal to 7.0% (the “Priority Return Percentage”). For each class, the dollar amount of the Performance Component will equal 10.0% of the difference between (i) the Annual Total Return allocable to Class A Shares, Class D Shares, Class A-I Shares, Class M-I Shares or Class M Shares, as applicable, and (ii) the amount required to provide Class A Stockholders, Class D Stockholders, Class A-I Stockholders, Class M-I Stockholders or Class M Stockholders, as applicable, an Annual Total Return equal to the Priority Return Percentage. In the event the Class A NAV per share, Class D NAV per share, Class A-I NAV per share, Class M-I NAV per share or Class M NAV per share decreases below $10.00 on any day during the measurement period, subject to adjustment pursuant to any stock dividend, stock split, recapitalization, or other similar change in the capital structure of the Company, any subsequent increase in such NAV per share to $10.00 (or such other adjusted number) shall not be included in the calculation of the Performance Component with respect to that class. If the Performance Component is payable with respect to Class A Shares,

 

13


Class D Shares, Class A-I Shares, Class M-I Shares or Class M Shares pursuant to this Section 10(c), the Advisor will be entitled to such payment even in the event that the Annual Total Return to Class A Stockholders, Class D Stockholders, Class A-I Stockholders, Class M-I Stockholders or Class M Stockholders, as applicable (or any particular Stockholder), expressed as a percentage on a cumulative basis over any longer or shorter period has been less than the Priority Return Percentage. The Advisor shall not be obligated to return any portion of any Advisory Fee paid based on the Company’s subsequent performance. The Performance Component may be earned in a given period for one or more of the Company’s classes of common stock.

(e) The Advisor shall, on a daily basis, (i) accrue a liability reserve account equal to the amount due for both the Fixed Component and the Performance Component, such accrual to be reflected in the NAV per share calculations for such day; and (ii) calculate the Annual Total Return allocable to Class A Shares, Class D Shares, Class A-I Shares, Class M-I Shares and Class M Shares, prorated as of the end of such day and, based on such calculation, adjust the balance of liability reserve accrual to reflect the estimated amount due on account of the Performance Component.

(f) The Advisory Fee will accrue daily and is payable in cash. The Fixed Component is payable monthly in arrears (after the close of business and NAV calculations for the last Business Day for such month). The Performance Component is payable promptly after the audited financial statements for each calendar year become available, provided that if this Agreement or its term expires without renewal prior to December 31 of any calendar year, then the prorated Performance Component for such partial year shall be payable promptly after the Company files (i) its unaudited financial statements on Form 10-Q for the calendar quarter that includes the Termination Date, or (ii) in the case of a Termination Date that occurs during the fourth calendar quarter of a calendar year, its audited financial statements on Form 10-K for the year ended that includes the Termination Date. The Performance Component shall be payable for each calendar year in which this Agreement is in effect, even if the Agreement is in effect for less than a full calendar year. In the event this Agreement is terminated or its term expires without renewal, the Advisory Fee will be calculated and due and payable after the calculation of NAV on the Termination Date. If the Advisory Fee is payable with respect to any partial calendar month or calendar year, the Fixed Component will be prorated based on the number of days elapsed during any partial calendar month and the Performance Component will be prorated based on the number of days elapsed during, and Annual Total Return achieved, for the period of such partial calendar year.

(g) In the event the Company or the Operating Partnership commences a liquidation of its Investments during any calendar year, the Company will pay the Advisor the fixed component of the Advisory Fee from the proceeds of the liquidation and the performance component of the Advisory Fee will be calculated at the end of the liquidation period prior to the distribution of the liquidation proceeds to the Stockholders.

 

  11. EXPENSES.

(a) As required by the NASAA REIT Guidelines, the cumulative Selling Commissions, Dealer Manager Fees and Organizational and Offering Expenses paid by the Company attributable to any Public Offering will not exceed 15.0% of Gross Proceeds from the sale of Shares in the Primary Offering of such Public Offering.

 

14


(b) In addition to the compensation paid to the Advisor pursuant to Section 10 hereof, the Company or the Operating Partnership shall pay directly or reimburse the Advisor for all of the expenses paid or incurred by the Advisor in connection with the services it provides to the Company and the Operating Partnership pursuant to this Agreement, including, but not limited to:

(xv) audit, accounting and legal fees and other fees or expenses for professional services relating to the operations of the Company;

(xvi) fees or expenses of third parties for services provided to the Company, including, but not limited to, the services of third party property managers, leasing or brokerage agents, project managers, real estate and mortgage brokers, and architectural, engineering or other consultants or third party service providers engaged by the Advisor to assist it in performing its duties and responsibilities set forth under Section 3 hereof (except for any compensation payable to any Sub-Advisor pursuant to Section 5 hereof); and

(d) Organizational and Offering Expenses incurred by the Advisor with respect to a Public Offering prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement relating to such Public Offering shall be reimbursed by the Company to the Advisor over a period of 36 months following the date such Registration Statement is declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

  12. OTHER SERVICES.

Should the Board request that the Advisor or any director, officer or employee thereof render services for the Company and the Operating Partnership other than set forth in Section 3, such services shall be separately compensated at such rates and in such amounts as are agreed by the Advisor and the Independent Directors, subject to the limitations contained in the Articles of Incorporation, and shall not be deemed to be services pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

 

  13. REIMBURSEMENT TO THE ADVISOR.

The Company shall not reimburse the Advisor at the end of any fiscal quarter for Total Operating Expenses that in the four consecutive fiscal quarters then ended (the “Expense Year”) exceeded (the “Excess Amount”) the greater of 2.0% of Average Invested Assets or 25.0% of Net Income (the “2%/25% Guidelines”) for such 12-month period unless the Independent Directors determine that such excess was justified, based on unusual and nonrecurring factors that the Independent Directors deem sufficient. If the Independent Directors do not approve such excess as being so justified, any Excess Amount paid to the Advisor during a fiscal quarter shall be repaid to the Company. If the Independent Directors determine

 

16


such excess was justified, then, within sixty (60) days after the end of any fiscal quarter of the Company for which total reimbursed Total Operating Expenses for the Expense Year exceed the 2%/25% Guidelines, the Advisor, at the direction of the Independent Directors, shall cause such fact to be disclosed to the Stockholders in writing (or the Company shall disclose such fact to the Stockholders in the next quarterly report of the Company or by filing a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission within sixty (60) days of such quarter end), together with an explanation of the factors the Independent Directors considered in determining that such excess were justified. The Company will ensure that such determination will be reflected in the minutes of the meetings of the Board. All figures used in the foregoing computations shall be determined in accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis.

 

  14. OTHER ACTIVITIES OF THE ADVISOR

(a) Relationship. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the Advisor or any of its Affiliates from engaging in or earning fees from other activities, including, without limitation, the rendering of advice to other Persons (including other REITs) and the management of other programs advised, sponsored or organized by the Advisor or its Affiliates; nor shall this Agreement limit or restrict the right of any director, officer, member, partner, employee, or stockholder of the Advisor or its Affiliates to engage in or earn fees from any other business or to render services of any kind to any other partnership, corporation, firm, individual, trust or association and earn fees for rendering such services. The Advisor may, with respect to any investment in which the Company is a participant, also render advice and service to each and every other participant therein, and earn fees for rendering such advice and service. Specifically, it is contemplated that the Company may enter into joint ventures or other similar co-investment arrangements with certain Persons, and pursuant to the agreements governing such joint ventures or arrangements, the Advisor may be engaged to provide advice and service to such Persons, in which case the Advisor will earn fees for rendering such advice and service.

(b) Time Commitment. The Advisor shall, and shall cause its Affiliates and their respective employees, officers and agents to, devote to the Company such time as shall be reasonably necessary to conduct the business and affairs of the Company in an appropriate manner consistent with the terms of this Agreement. The Company acknowledges that the Advisor and its Affiliates and their respective employees, officers and agents may also engage in activities unrelated to the Company and may provide services to Persons other than the Company or any of its Affiliates.

(c) Investment Opportunities. The Advisor shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to present to the Company a number of potential investment opportunities appropriate for the portfolio of the Company consistent with the investment policies and objectives of the Company, but neither the Advisor nor any Affiliate of the Advisor shall be obligated generally to present any particular investment opportunity to the Company even if the opportunity is of a character that, if presented to the Company, could be taken by the Company. In the event an investment opportunity is located, the allocation procedure set forth in the Prospectus shall govern the allocation of the opportunity among the Company, on the one hand, and other clients of the Advisor, on the other hand; provided any changes to the procedure shall be presented in advance and approved by the Board, including a majority of the Independent Directors.

 

17


  15. RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES.

The Company and the Operating Partnership, on the one hand, and the Advisor on the other, are not partners or joint venturers with each other, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to make them such partners or joint venturers or impose any liability as such on either of them.

 

  16. TERM OF AGREEMENT.

This Agreement shall continue in force for a period of one year from the Effective Date, subject to an unlimited number of successive one-year renewals upon mutual consent of the parties. It is the duty of the Directors to evaluate the performance of the Advisor annually before renewing the Agreement, and each such renewal shall be for a term of no more than one year.

 

  17. TERMINATION BY THE PARTIES.

This Agreement may be terminated (i)immediately by the Company or the Operating Partnership for Cause or upon the bankruptcy of the Advisor or upon a material breach of this Agreement by the Advisor; provided, that such material breach is not capable of being cured or has not been cured within sixty (60) days after the giving of notice thereof by the Company to the Advisor; (ii) upon sixty (60) days’ written notice without Cause or penalty by a majority vote of the Independent Directors; or (iii) upon sixty (60) days’ written notice by the Advisor. The provisions of Sections 19 through 22 survive termination of this Agreement.

 

  18. ASSIGNMENT TO AN AFFILIATE.

This Agreement may be assigned by the Advisor to an Affiliate with the prior written consent of the Company or the Operating Partnership, it being agreed that such consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed by the Company or the Operating Partnership. The Advisor may assign any rights to receive fees or other payments under this Agreement to any Person without obtaining the consent of the Company or the Operating Partnership. This Agreement shall not be assigned by the Company or the Operating Partnership without the consent of the Advisor, except in the case of an assignment by the Company or the Operating Partnership to a corporation, limited partnership or other organization which is a successor to all of the assets, rights and obligations of the Company or the Operating Partnership, in which case such successor organization shall be bound hereunder and by the terms of said assignment in the same manner as the Company and the Operating Partnership are bound by this Agreement.

 

  19. PAYMENTS TO AND DUTIES OF ADVISOR UPON TERMINATION.

(a) After the Termination Date, the Advisor shall not be entitled to compensation for further services hereunder except it shall be entitled to receive from the Company or the Operating Partnership within thirty (30) days after the effective date of such termination all unpaid reimbursements of expenses and all earned but unpaid fees payable to the Advisor prior to termination of this Agreement, subject to the 2%/25% Guidelines to the extent applicable.

(b) The Advisor shall promptly upon termination:

(i) pay over to the Company and the Operating Partnership all money collected and held for the account of the Company and the Operating Partnership pursuant to this Agreement, after deducting any accrued compensation and reimbursement for its expenses to which it is then entitled;

 

18


(ii) deliver to the Board a full accounting, including a statement showing all payments collected by it and a statement of all money held by it, covering the period following the date of the last accounting furnished to the Board;

(iii) deliver to the Board all assets, including all Investments, and documents of the Company and the Operating Partnership then in the custody of the Advisor; and

(iv) cooperate with the Company and the Operating Partnership to provide an orderly management transition.

 

  20. INDEMNIFICATION BY THE COMPANY AND THE OPERATING PARTNERSHIP.

The Company and the Operating Partnership shall indemnify and hold harmless the Advisor and its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees (the “Indemnitees,” and each an “Indemnitee”), from all liability, claims, damages or losses arising in the performance of their duties hereunder, and related expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, to the extent such liability, claims, damages or losses and related expenses are not fully reimbursed by insurance, and to the extent that such indemnification would not be inconsistent with the laws of the State of Maryland, the Articles of Incorporation or the provisions of Section II.G of the NASAA REIT Guidelines.

 

  21. INDEMNIFICATION BY ADVISOR.

The Advisor shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the Operating Partnership from contract or other liability, claims, damages, taxes or losses and related expenses including attorneys’ fees, to the extent that such liability, claims, damages, taxes or losses and related expenses are not fully reimbursed by insurance and are incurred by reason of the Advisor’s bad faith, fraud, willful misconduct, gross negligence or reckless disregard of its duties; provided, however, that the Advisor shall not be held responsible for any action of the Board in following or declining to follow any advice or recommendation given by the Advisor.

 

  22. NON-SOLICITATION.

During the period commencing on the Effective Date and ending one year following the Termination Date, the Company shall not, without the Advisor’s prior written consent, directly or indirectly, (i) solicit or encourage any person to leave the employment or other service of the Advisor or its Affiliates, or (ii) hire, on behalf of the Company or any other person or entity, any person who has left the employment within the one year period following the termination of that person’s employment the Advisor or its Affiliates. During the period commencing on the date hereof through and ending one year following the Termination Date, the Company will not, whether for its own account or for the account of any other Person, intentionally interfere with the relationship of the Advisor or its Affiliates with, or endeavor to entice away from the Advisor or its Affiliates, any person who during the term of the Agreement is, or during the preceding one-year period, was a tenant, co-investor, co-developer, joint venturer or other customer of the Advisor or its Affiliates.
