For services rendered to the Company, the Manager shall be entitled to an annual management fee equal to two percent (2%) of the fair market value of the Assets (the “Management Fee”), provided, that, the fair market value of the Assets for purposes of determining the Management Fee shall be adjusted to exclude deferred tax assets of the Company. The Management Fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears. If additional capital is contributed to the Portfolios, or the Portfolios are funded, or capital is withdrawn, after the beginning of a quarter, the amount of the Management Fee attributable to such capital for that quarter shall be prorated on a time-weighted basis.
Subject to the provisions of this Agreement, the Company shall pay (or cause to be paid) to the Manager an incentive-based fee (the “Performance Fee”) with respect to the Portfolios. The Performance Fee shall be calculated as of the end of each Performance Period (as defined below) and payable quarterly in arrears.
The Performance Fee in respect of each Performance Period shall be equal to twenty percent (20%) of the appreciation of end of year net asset value (“NAV”), calculated in the same manner as in the 2019 CCUR Bonus Plan, provided, that, NAV for purposes of determining the Performance Fee shall be adjusted to exclude deferred tax assets of the Company.
“Performance Period” means, with respect to all of the Assets, an initial period commencing on January 1, 2020 and ending on June 30, 2020. Thereafter a new Performance Period shall be deemed to commence on the day immediately following the last day of the preceding Performance Period and ending on the earliest of (x) June 30 of each year or (y) any termination of this Agreement by either party.
For any quarter with respect to which the Management Fee is payable via a grant of stock appreciation rights, the Company shall pay (or cause to be paid) to the Manager, in arrears, a cash payment of $50,000, which payment will be in full satisfaction of any obligation that the Company has under this Agreement or otherwise with respect to the payment or reimbursement of expenses of the Manager. For any quarter in which the Management Fee is payable in cash, the Company shall pay (or cause to be paid) to the Manager, in arrears, all direct out-of-pocket fees, costs and expenses incurred by the Manager in connection with the services provided under this Agreement, including custodial fees, brokerage commissions, clearing fees, interest, expenses related to proxies and withholding or transfer taxes, or other fees, costs, or expenses incurred for the Company’s Portfolios.
Method of Payment.
Except with respect to payments contemplated by the “Expenses” section above, which shall be made in cash to an account designated by the Manager, the Company shall pay any amounts payable to the Manager hereunder, including without limitation the Performance Fee and the Management Fee, via a grant of stock appreciation rights in the form attached as Exhibit A hereto (“SAR Grant”), provided, that, with respect to all periods from and after July 1, 2020, the Management Fee shall be paid in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds or SAR Grant, at the sole option of the Manager, in accordance with written instructions provided by the Manager to the Company. The cash value of a SAR Grant for the purpose of determining the amount by which it reduces the fees payable under this Agreement shall equal the price of the Company’s common stock on the day of the grant. For example, if 250,000 Appreciation Rights were granted pursuant to a SAR Grant on October 15, 2020 the price per share was $2.79, such SAR Grant would represent the payment of $697,500.
