Once each quarter, senior representatives of the Advisor will meet with at least a majority of the Independent Directors for the purpose of reviewing the Advisor’s compliance with the Guidelines with respect to all investments allocated among the Sponsor, the Company and each other REIT and investment program managed by an Affiliate of the Sponsor (each, together with its Affiliates, an “Investment Entity,” and collectively, the “Investment Entities”) during the most recently completed fiscal quarter. The quarterly review will take place at the regularly scheduled quarterly meeting of the Board, or at another time and place that are mutually determined by the Advisor and the Independent Directors, and may include representatives of other Investment Entities. The Advisor will use its best efforts to distribute a report reasonably in advance of each quarterly review meeting containing a list of all investments allocated to the Investment Entities, the particular Investment Entity to which each investment was allocated, a brief description of the investment, the purchase price of each investment and acquisition fees (if any) paid to the Advisor and its Affiliates in connection with each investment.

In the case of a development/redevelopment project subject to clause (2) above, upon completion of the development/redevelopment project, the Advisor shall determine the actual amounts paid. To the extent the amounts actually paid vary from the budgeted amounts on which the Acquisition and Advisory Fee was initially based, the Advisor will pay or invoice the Company for 2.0% of the budget variance such that the Acquisition and Advisory Fee is ultimately 2.0% of amounts expended on such development/redevelopment project.
(c) Disposition Fee. If the Advisor or an Affiliate of the Advisor provides a substantial amount of the services (as determined by a majority of the Independent Directors) in connection with the Sale of one or more Properties, the Advisor or such Affiliate shall receive a Disposition Fee up to the lesser of 1.0% of the Contract Sales Price and one-half of the brokerage commission paid if a third party broker is involved. The Disposition Fee may be paid in addition to Disposition Fees paid to non-Affiliates, provided that the total Disposition Fees paid to all Persons by the Company (including the Disposition Fee) shall not exceed an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the Competitive Disposition Fee or (ii) 6.0% of the Contract Sales Price of a Property.
(d) Changes to Fee Structure. In the event of Listing, the Company and the Advisor shall negotiate in good faith to establish a fee structure appropriate for perpetual life entity. A majority of the Independent Directors must approve the new fee structure negotiated with the Advisor. 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 Advisory Fees in relation to the size, composition and profitability of the Company’s portfolio; (b) the success of the Advisor in generating opportunities that meet the investment objectives of the Company; (c) the rates charged to other REITs and to investors other than REITs by advisors performing similar services; (d) additional revenues realized by the Advisor and its Affiliates through their relationship with the Company, including loan administration, servicing, inspection and other fees, whether paid by the Company or by others with whom the Company does business; (e) the quality and extent of service and advice furnished by the Advisor; (f) the performance of the investment portfolio of the Company, including income, conservation or
appreciation of capital, frequency of problem investments and competence in dealing with distress situations; and (g) the quality of the portfolio of the Company in relationship to the investments generated by the Advisor for the account of other clients.
(e) Construction Fee. If the Advisor or an Affiliate of the Advisor provides construction, or construction related services, including acting as general contractor and/or construction manager to supervise or coordinate projects or to provide major repairs or rehabilitation on the Company’s properties, the Company shall pay the Advisor or the Affiliate of the Advisor, as the case may be, a Construction Fee up to 5.0% of the cost of the projects, repairs and/or rehabilitation, as applicable. These fees shall not exceed fees that are usual and customary for comparable services rendered for similar projects in the geographic market where services are provided.
(f) Payment. For purposes of the payment of compensation to the Advisor in the form of Shares, the value of each Share shall be the most recently determined estimated NAV per share (the “NAV”) as determined by the Board or an independent appraiser. If shares are being offered to the public at the time a fee is paid in Shares, the value shall be the price of the Shares without commissions. The NAV may be adjusted on a quarterly or other basis by the Board to account for significant capital transactions.
(a) In addition to the compensation paid to the Advisor pursuant to Section 3.01 hereof, the Company or the Partnership shall pay directly or reimburse the Advisor, as applicable, for all of the expenses paid or incurred by the Advisor in connection with the services it provides to the Company, OP I and the Partnership pursuant to this Agreement, including, but not limited to:
(i) Organization and Offering Expenses, but only to the extent the reimbursement would not cause the Selling Commissions, the dealer manager fees and the other Organization and Offering Expenses borne by the Company to exceed 15% of the Gross Proceeds raised in each completed Offering. Within 60 days after the end of the month in which an Offering terminates, the Advisor shall reimburse the Company for any Organization and Offering Expenses reimbursed by the Company to the Advisor to the extent that such reimbursements exceed 15% of the Gross Proceeds raised in the applicable completed Offering. The Advisor shall be responsible for the payment of the Organization and Offering Expenses in excess of 15% of the Gross Proceeds. In the event the Company does not raise the minimum amount of the Offering as set forth in the Prospectus, the Advisor shall not be reimbursed for any Organization and Offering Expenses;
(ii) Acquisition Expenses incurred in connection with the selection and acquisition of Assets in an amount estimated to be up to 0.75% of the Contract Purchase Price, subject, however, to the aggregate six percent (6%) cap on Acquisition and Advisory Fees and Acquisition Expenses set forth in Section 3.01(b);
(iii) the actual cost of goods, services and materials used by the Company and obtained from Persons not affiliated with the Advisor, other than Acquisition Expenses, including brokerage fees paid in connection with the purchase and sale of Shares;
interest and other costs for borrowed money, including discounts, points and other similar fees;
taxes and assessments on income or property and taxes as an expense of doing business;
costs associated with insurance required in connection with the business of the Company or by the Board;
(vii) expenses of managing and operating Assets owned by the Company, whether payable to an Affiliate of the Company or a non- affiliated Person;
all expenses in connection with payments to the Board for attendance at meetings of the Board and Stockholders;
(ix) expenses associated with Listing or with the issuance and distribution of Shares and other securities of the Company, such as Selling Commissions and fees, advertising expenses, taxes, legal and accounting fees, and Listing and registration fees;
(x) expenses connected with payments of Distributions in cash or otherwise made or caused to be made by the Company to the Stockholders;
(xi) expenses of organizing, reorganizing, liquidating or dissolving the Company or amending the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws;
(xii) expenses of any third party transfer agent for the Shares and of maintaining communications with Stockholders, including the cost of preparation, printing, and mailing annual reports and other Stockholder reports, proxy statements and other reports required by governmental entities;
(xiii) administrative service expenses, including all costs and expenses incurred by the Advisor in fulfilling its duties hereunder. Such costs and expenses may include reasonable wages and salaries and other employee-related expenses of all employees and key personnel of the Advisor who are engaged in the management, administration, operations, and marketing of the Company, including taxes, insurance and benefits relating to such employees, and legal, travel and other out-of-pocket expenses which are directly related to their services provided hereunder; and
audit, accounting and legal fees.
No reimbursement shall be made for costs of personnel of the Advisor or its Affiliates to the extent that such personnel perform services in connection with services for which the Advisor receives the Acquisition and Advisory Fee or the Disposition Fee.
(b) Expenses incurred by the Advisor on behalf of the Company and the Partnership and payable pursuant to this Section 3.02 shall be reimbursed no less than quarterly to the Advisor within 60 days after the end of each quarter. The Advisor shall prepare a statement documenting the expenses of the Company and the Partnership during each quarter, and shall deliver such statement to the Company and the Partnership within 45 days after the end of each quarter.
3.03 Other Services. Should the Board request that the Advisor or any director, officer or employee thereof render services for the Company, OP I and the Partnership other than set forth in Section 2.02, such services shall be separately compensated at such rates and in such amounts as are agreed by the Advisor and the Board, 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.
3.04 Reimbursement to the Advisor. The Company shall not reimburse the Advisor, at the end of any fiscal quarter, for any Operating Expenses to the extent that, in the four consecutive fiscal quarters then ended (the “Expense Year”) the Operating Expenses exceed (the “Excess Amount”) the greater of (i) 2% of Average Invested Assets or (ii) 25% of Net Income (the “2%/25% Guidelines”) for that period of four consecutive quarters unless the Independent Directors determine that such excess was justified, based on unusual and nonrecurring factors which 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.

4.01 Term; Renewal. Subject to Section 4.02 hereof, this Agreement has a one-year term and shall continue in force until the first anniversary of the date hereof.

The Company shall not indemnify or hold harmless the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, for any liability or loss suffered by the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, nor shall it provide that the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, be held harmless for any loss or liability suffered by the Company, unless all of the following conditions are met: (i) the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, have determined, in good faith, that the course of conduct which caused the loss or liability was in the best interests of the Company; (ii) the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, were acting on behalf of or performing services of the Company; (iii) such liability or loss was not the result of negligence or misconduct by the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees; and (iv) such indemnification or agreement to hold harmless is recoverable only out of the Company’s net assets and not from Stockholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Advisor and its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, shall not be indemnified by the Company for any losses, liability or expenses arising from or out of an alleged violation of federal or state securities laws by such party unless one or more of the following conditions are met: (i) there has been a successful adjudication on the merits of each count involving alleged securities law violations as to the particular indemnitee; (ii) such claims have been dismissed with prejudice on the merits by a court of competent jurisdiction as to the particular indemnitee; and (iii) a court of competent jurisdiction approves a settlement of the claims against a particular indemnitee and finds that indemnification of the settlement and the related costs should be made, and the court considering the request for indemnification has been advised of the position of the Securities and Exchange Commission and of the published position of any state securities regulatory authority in which securities of the Company were offered or sold as to indemnification for violations of securities laws.
(b)The Articles of Incorporation provide that the advancement of Company funds to the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, for legal expenses and other costs incurred as a result of any legal action for which indemnification is being sought is permissible only if all of the following conditions are satisfied: (i) the legal action relates to acts or omissions with respect to the performance of duties or services on behalf of the Company; (ii) the legal action is initiated by a third-party who is not a Stockholder or the legal action is initiated by a Stockholder acting in his or her capacity as such and a court of competent jurisdiction specifically approves such advancement; (iii) the advisor or its Affiliates provides the Company with a written affirmation of their good faith belief that they have met the standard of conduct necessary for indemnification; and (iv) the Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, undertake to repay the advanced funds to the Company
together with the applicable legal rate of interest thereon, in cases in which such Advisor or its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, partners and employees, are found not to be entitled to indemnification.
(c)Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 5.01, the Advisor shall not be entitled to indemnification or be held harmless pursuant to this Section 5.01 for any activity which the Advisor shall be required to indemnify or hold harmless the Company pursuant to Section 5.02.
5.02 Indemnification by Advisor. The Advisor shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company from contract or other liability, claims, damages, taxes or losses and related expenses including attorneys’ fees, to the extent that (i) such liability, claims, damages, taxes or losses and related expenses are not fully reimbursed by insurance and (ii) are incurred by reason of the Advisor’s bad faith, fraud, misfeasance, misconduct, negligence or reckless disregard of its duties. 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.
6.01 Assignment to an Affiliate. This Agreement may be assigned by the Advisor to an Affiliate of the Advisor with the approval of a majority of the Board (including a majority of the Independent Directors). The Advisor 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 or the Partnership without the consent of the Advisor, except in the case of an assignment by the Company or the Partnership to a corporation or other organization which is a successor to all of the assets, rights and obligations of 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 and the Partnership are bound by this Agreement. This Agreement shall be binding on successors to the Company and the Partnership resulting from a Change of Control or sale of all or substantially all the assets of the Company or the Partnership, and shall likewise be binding upon any successor to the Advisor.
6.02 Relationship of Advisor and Company. The Company, the Partnership 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 or impose any liability as such on either of them. The Advisor and its Affiliates have or may have a proprietary interest in the name “Carter Validus.” The Advisor hereby grants to the Company, to the extent of any proprietary interest the Advisor may have in the name “Carter Validus,” a non-transferable, non-assignable, non-exclusive, royalty- free right and license to use the name “Carter Validus” during the term of this Agreement. The Company agrees that the Advisor and its Affiliates will have the right to approve of any use by the Company of the name “Carter Validus,” such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. 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 “Carter Validus” 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 “Carter Validus” 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 its Affiliates. At such time, the Company will also make any changes to any trademarks, service marks or other marks necessary to remove any references to the word “Carter Validus.” 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 “Carter Validus” as a part of their name, all without the need for any consent (and without the right to object thereto) by the Company. Neither the Advisor nor any of its Affiliates makes any representation or warranty, express or implied, with respect to the name “Carter Validus” licensed hereunder or the use thereof (including without limitation as to whether the use of the name “Carter Validus” will be free from infringement of the intellectual property rights of third parties. Notwithstanding the preceding, the Advisor represents and warrants that it is not aware of any pending claims or litigation or of any claims threatened in writing regarding the use or ownership of the name “Carter Validus.”
