(d)Section 12.03 of the Advisory Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
12.03    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 a character that, if presented to the Company, could be taken by the Company. In the event an Investment opportunity is identified, the allocation procedures set forth under the caption “Conflicts of Interest—Allocation of Investment Opportunities” in any Prospectus (as it may be amended from time to time) or, following the termination of the Offering, in any report filed by the Company with the SEC disclosing such procedures, as they may be amended from time to time, shall govern the allocation of the opportunity among the Company, CLNY, any of their Affiliates and any investment vehicles sponsored or managed by CLNY or any of their Affiliates.”
(e)Article 13 of the Advisory Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
CLNY and its Affiliates have a proprietary interest in the name “NorthStar.” CLNY hereby grants to the Company a non-transferable, non-assignable, non-exclusive royalty-free right and license to use the name “NorthStar” during the term of this Agreement. Accordingly, and in recognition of this right, if at any time the Company ceases to retain CLNY or one of its Affiliates to perform advisory services for the Company, the Company will, promptly after receipt of written request from the Sponsor, cease to conduct business under or use the name “NorthStar” 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 “NorthStar” or any other word or words that might, in the reasonable discretion of CLNY, be susceptible of indication of some form of relationship between the Company and CLNY or any 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 “NorthStar.” Consistent with the foregoing, it is specifically recognized that CLNY 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 healthcare-related real estate assets) and financial and service organizations having “NorthStar” as a part of their name, all without the need for any consent (and without the right to object thereto) by the Company. CLNY shall govern Company’s use of the name “NorthStar” and the Company’s use of the “NorthStar” name will be in strict accordance with any quality standards and specifications that may be established by Advisor and communicated to Company from time to time.”
