Generally, the Subordinated Share of Cash Flows payable to the Advisor shall be paid on the last day of such month, or the first business day following the last day of such month. For the avoidance of doubt, to the extent the payment of the Subordinated Share of Cash Flows is funded other than from Cash From Sales and Settlements, such amounts shall be included in Operating Expenses and subject to the 2%/25% Guidelines.

This voting restriction shall survive until such time that the Advisor is both no longer serving as such and is no longer an Affiliate of the Company.
ARTICLE 11

RELATIONSHIP OF ADVISOR AND COMPANY;

OTHER ACTIVITIES OF THE ADVISOR
11.01    Relationship. The Company and the Advisor 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. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the Advisor from engaging in 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 manager, director, officer, employee or equityholder of the Advisor or its Affiliates to engage in any other business or to render services of any kind to any other Person. 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. The Advisor shall promptly disclose to the Board the existence of any condition or circumstance, existing or anticipated, of which it has knowledge, that creates or could create a conflict of interest between the Advisor’s obligations to the Company and its obligations to or its interest in any other Person.
11.02    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.
11.03    Investment Opportunities and Allocation. The Advisor shall be required to use commercially reasonable efforts to present a continuing and suitable investment program to the Company that is 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 character that, if presented to the Company, could be taken by the Company. In the event an investment opportunity is located that may be suitable for the Company and other programs advised by the Advisor or any of its Affiliates, including KBS Realty Advisors, the Advisor, in its sole discretion, will have to determine the program or investor for which the investment opportunity

21




is most suitable based on the investment objectives, portfolio and criteria of each program or investor. This determination must be made in a manner that is fair without favoring any other program or investor. The factors that the Advisor shall consider when determining the program or investor for which an investment opportunity would be the most suitable are the following:
the investment objectives and criteria of each program or investor;
the cash requirements of each program or investor;
the effect of the investment on the diversification of each program’s or investor’s portfolio by type of investment, risk of investment, type of commercial property, geographic location of properties, and tenants of properties and, in the case of debt-related investments, the characteristics of the underlying property;
the policy of each program or investor relating to leverage;
the anticipated cash flow of the property or asset to be acquired;
the income tax effects of the purchase on each program or investor;
the size of the investment; and
the amount of funds available to each program or investor and the length of time such funds have been available for investment.
If a subsequent event or development, such as a delay in the closing of a property or investment or a delay in the construction of a property, causes any investment, in the opinion of the Advisor, to be more appropriate for another program or investor, they may offer the investment to another program or investor. It shall be the duty of the Board to ensure that the allocation method described above is applied fairly to the Company.
ARTICLE 12
THE KBS NAME
The Advisor and its Affiliates have a proprietary interest in the name “KBS.” The Advisor hereby grants to the Company a non-transferable, non-assignable, non-exclusive royalty-free right and license to use the name “KBS” during the term of this Agreement. Accordingly, and in recognition of this right, if at any time the Company ceases to retain the Advisor or one of its Affiliates to perform advisory services for the Company, the Company will, promptly after receipt of written request from the Advisor, cease to conduct business under or use the name “KBS” or any derivative thereof and the Company shall change its name and the names of any of its subsidiaries to a name that does not contain the name “KBS” or any other word or words that might, in the reasonable discretion of the Advisor, be susceptible of indication of some form of relationship between the Company and the Advisor or any of its Affiliates. At such time, the Company will also make any changes to any trademarks, servicemarks or other marks necessary to remove any references to the word “KBS.” Consistent with the foregoing, it is specifically recognized that the Advisor or one or more of its Affiliates has in the past and may in the future organize, sponsor or otherwise permit to exist other investment vehicles (including vehicles for investment in real estate) and financial and service organizations having “KBS” as a part of their name, all without the need for any consent (and without the right to object thereto) by the Company.

Notwithstanding anything contained in Article 9 of the Agreement to the contrary, the Advisor hereby agrees to advance funds to the Company equal to the cumulative amount of cash

distributions declared by the Company for distribution record dates through the period ended May 31, 2016 and to advance funds to the Company, to the extent and in the amount requested by the Company, equal to an amount up to the cumulative amount of cash distributions declared by the Company for distribution record dates for the period from June 1, 2016 to June 30, 2016 (such amounts advanced, the “Advance”).
The Advisor further agrees that the Company will only be obligated to repay the Advisor for the Advance if and to the extent that:
(i)
the Company’s modified funds from operations (“MFFO”), as such term is defined by the Investment Program Association and interpreted by the Company, for the immediately preceding month exceeds the amount of cash distributions declared for record dates of such prior month (an “MFFO Surplus”), and the Company shall pay the Advisor the amount of the MFFO Surplus to reduce the principal amount outstanding under the Advance, provided that such payments shall only be made if management in its sole discretion expects an MFFO Surplus to be recurring for at least the next two calendar quarters, determined on a quarterly basis; or
(ii)
the Advance may be repaid from excess proceeds (“Excess Proceeds”) from the Company’s third-party financings, provided that the amount of any such Excess Proceeds that may be used to repay the principal amount outstanding under the Advance shall be determined by the Conflicts Committee of the Company in its sole discretion.
The Advisor understands and agrees that no interest shall accrue on the Advance. To the extent payment of any amount is due to the Advisor hereunder, the Company shall pay the Advisor no later than the last business day of the month in which the amount of such payment is determined, or the first business day of the following month.
