|2. ||Structure of Transaction. || |
The Transaction shall occur in two (2) stages set in series as follows
|(a)||In order to allow for the transaction contemplated at Subsection 2. (b). hereof, AcquireCo shall acquire the Lands; |
|(b)||KannaREIT and CPRX shall incorporate a special purpose vehicle (the “SPV”) for the purpose of acquiring AcquireCo, which shall be transferred to the SPV as part of CPRX’s equity contribution (further defined below) thereto at a valuation between 85%-100% of the total acquisition cost (including reasonable transaction fees) of the Land. CPRX’s equity contribution shall be recognized as 85%-100% [percentage within the range to be set by CPRX after consultation with its tax advisors] the forgoing value (as required by Section 9. of Schedule 10.) of the Lands plus existing improvements fully completed or partially completed, machinery/equipment at cost, if any (“Existing Improvements”), less any mortgage financing and related costs being paid out by the SPV as the parties may agree (the Existing Improvements, collectively, with the contribution of the Lands, comprise the “CPRX Equity”). The parties acknowledge and agree that the closing of the transaction contemplated by the accepted letter of intent as between CPRX and Sunniva Inc. dated 25 April 2019 shall guide the determination of CPRX Equity as the model progresses. For greater certainty, where the loan to value ratio calls for additional equity to be contributed to the SPV [which will be determined as the performance model progresses], CPRX shall contribute further capital which capital shall form a part of the CPRX Equity; |
|(c)|| In exchange for the CPRX Equity, CPRX shall take issue of a non-voting preferred share block or equivalent (the “Preferred Share Block”), which shall be issuable by the SPV in accordance with the Agreements and shall issue on the basis of 1 preferred share per $100,000. contributed; and |
|(d)||Concurrently with, but as a condition of the SPV’s consummation of the Transaction (“Closing”), CPRX shall enter into a twenty (20) year lease-back, or such other agreed upon length (the “Lease”). The Lease value will include, but not be limited to, the Lands, any Existing Improvements and future improvements (future improvements hereinafter referred to as the “Development” and, collectively with the Lands and the Existing Improvements, hereinafter referred to as the “Site”), on terms and conditions to be agreed to by the parties and set forth in the Agreements. The rent commencement date, as defined in the Lease, shall be the date that is nine (9) months after the substantial performance under the CCDC 2 (the “Rent Commencement Date”) for any given Phase (as hereinafter defined) of the Development, which date shall coincide with the placement of permanent financing (the “Stabilized Loan”) on such completed Phase that SPV’s third party lender (the “Lender”) will avail to the SPV. |
|3. ||The Preferred Share Block. ||(a) || |
The Preferred Share Block shall be entitled to a preferred return of twelve (12%) percent per annum [calculated on the basis of the CPRX Equity as set out in the final form of the performance model certified on Closing] payable, quarterly in arrears, as of the Rent Commencement Date;
| || ||(b) ||The Preferred Share Block shall:|
|a.||be of a non-voting share class;|
|b.||shall have a priority right to dividends or equivalent from the SPV ahead of any dividend or equivalent payable to the common share block, but after allocation to the non-recoverable expense allowance (inclusive of, inter alia, property management fees, asset management fees, reserve, maintenance and other expenses); |
|c.||shall have priority rights (viz-a-viz other shareholders in the SPV) in the event of liquidation, wind-up or dissolution of the SPV;|
|(c)||The Preferred Share Block shall not be entitled to voting rights, however, shall share in the growth and appreciation of the value of the SPV together with the common stock on the basis of the fraction whereby the numerator is the total number of preferred shares issued comprising the Preferred Share Block and the denominator is the aforesaid number of shares issued plus the number of common shares issued to KannaREIT (the “CPRX Factor”) [note, however, in accordance with Section 16., the Preferred Share Block may become entitled to the whole of the growth and appreciation of the Site by way of exercise of the right set out in Subsection 16. (c).];|
|(d)||The shareholders of the SPV shall be subject to a unanimous shareholder agreement, the terms of which will be negotiated but which will require the consent of CPRX to certain decisions of the company, including, but not limited to the disposition of the Site, the amendment of the terms of any debt facility, whether detailed herein or otherwise, the entering into of new, extended or additional debt facilities and any other fundamental changes;|
|(e)||In the event that CPRX shall sell its assets (other than with the consent of KannaREIT where such consent is required pursuant to the Agreements), breach or otherwise fall into default (to be further defined under the Agreements) of the Lease and fail to cure such breach or default within the applicable cure period (a “CPRX Default”), CPRX shall forfeit, for immediate redemption, at nil value (or nominal consideration to be paid if deemed requisite by the accountants for the SPV), the Preferred Share Block [in this context, at all times, the share certificates demonstrating CPRX’s title to the Preferred Share Block shall be held in escrow by KannaREIT with a duly executed redemption agreement or agreements relating thereto, which KannaREIT may act upon in the event of a uncured CPRX Default]; and|
|(f)||The SPV shall not be entitled to issue any additional preferred shares or to issue any additional common shares or to issue any debt securities or borrow any funds (other than the construction loan facility, Stabilized Facility and any related facilities contemplated within the Agreements), other than trade creditors in the ordinary course of business without the express written consent of CPRX.|
|4. ||The SPV. ||(a) || |
All common stock authorized and issued of the SPV shall be owned by KannaREIT [the number of shares issued to be determined in accordance with the performance model, as finalized ahead of Closing] and entitled to a dividend, quarterly in arrears, as of the Rent Commencement Date;
| || ||(b) ||SPV shall be responsible to make mortgage payment to the Lender as respects the Stabilized Loan; and|
| || ||(c) ||On the occurrence of a capital event such as the placement of the Stabilized Loan which shall occur as defined above in Subsection 2. (d)., CPRX may elect to require that the SPV pay out the value of the CPRX Equity, as determined in accordance with Subsection 2. (b). hereof in such form of payment as KannaREIT may elect (having no regard for tax treatment as income or otherwise once such amounts have been distributed to CPRX).|
|5. ||Business and |
|(a) || |
For the purpose of the Lease and Stabilized Loan, KannaREIT shall complete a financial model and business case based on certain assumptions, to and including (but not limited to) a development plan of approximately 759,000 square feet, in two (2) phase (a “Phase” being synonymous with the “Development”).
| || ||(b) ||The financial model and business case shall include the development cost (which shall be expressed as a per square foot of gross area factor for the Development), inclusive of construction, structuring, consultants, marketing (if required), project and development management and entitlement services fees of the Development along with the fixed price contract (between the SPV and CPRX’s selected general contractor) shall not exceed an amount determined during and shown within the formal model that will be submit to the Lender in accordance with Schedule 10. once all the model assumptions have been agreed to and set by the parties hereto.|
| || ||(c) ||KannaREIT has annexed hereto, as Schedule 5. (c)., an SPV organizational chart.|
| || ||(d) ||KannaREIT has annexed hereto, as Schedule 5. (d)., high-level version of the model outlining the anticipated performance based upon the general assumptions shown therein and which will, once finalized, form the basis for the SPV and its shareholders. This schedule is subject to change based upon the evolution of the business case and the underlying CPRX requirements reflected therein. Upon execution of this HOA, CPRX shall work with KannaREIT on the business plan in order to finalize a ten (10) year formal business plan for the SPV, (a condition precedent for financing and proceeding with the Transaction). CPRX shall provide all plans, conceptual, formal or otherwise, that have been developed for the Development proposed upon the Lands (the “Due Diligence Materials”)|
|6. ||Base Rent factor determination. || |
The Lease agreement shall provide for an average base rent (which shall commence upon the Rent Commencement Date, as defined in the Lease, and which shall occur as defined above in Subsection 2. (d).) which will be established by way of the formal model once all the model assumptions have been agreed to (as per Section 5. above) by the parties hereto and which, as a condition precedent of the Closing, shall satisfy the required lender underwriting criteria. The average base rent shall be expressed as a per square foot of gross area factor. The Lease shall have a minimum of three (3) base rent adjustments throughout the term of the Lease. The base rent in year one (until the initial base rent adjustment, shall be agreed upon by the parties during the formalization of the model) of the Lease shall be established at a rate that the parties agree to, Lender acknowledges and that supports the model and business case. The base rent factor shall be expressed as a cost per square foot of the gross building area of the Existing Improvements and the Development, payable monthly from the Rent Commencement Date.

The legal rights and obligations of the parties shall be only those which are set forth in the Agreement (s) when and if executed and delivered by both the parties. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in this HOA, this HOA shall not constitute an agreement to negotiate and solely constitutes an outline of the terms of negotiation. The parties each acknowledge and agree that each party is proceeding with negotiations related to the proposed transaction(s) at its sole cost and expense (which may involve substantial transaction costs) and that neither party shall have any liability for the costs and expenses of the other party.

The parties agree that there shall be no recourse by either of them against the other if they do not reach agreement on the full terms and conditions for the Agreement(s) and execute and deliver the same [provided that any pursuit of a construction facility or the Stabilized Loan with the Lender by CPRX without having first entered into the Agreement(s) shall be a deemed acceptance of the terms of the Agreements as most recently proposed by KannaREIT].

|25. ||Independent Legal Advice. |
The parties to this HOA agree that this HOA was negotiated fairly between them at arm’s length and that the final terms of this HOA are the product of the parties’ negotiations.

The parties agree that this HOA shall be deemed to have been jointly and equally drafted by them, and that the sections of this HOA therefore should not be construed against a party or parties on the grounds that the party or parties drafted or was more responsible for drafting the section(s).
|26. ||Counterparts. || |
This HOA may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be considered the original and all of which, together, shall constitute one and the same instrument. Such may also be executed in original or by signatures sent and received by electronic transmission and the parties hereto agree that the reproduction of signatures sent and received by way of facsimile or other electronic transmission will be deemed as though such reproductions were executed original thereof.
