THIRD AMENDMENT TO CREDIT AGREEMENT
This Third Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) is made as of November 6, 2020, by and among HIGHLANDS REIT, INC., a Maryland corporation (“Borrower”), THE HUNTINGTON NATIONAL BANK, as “Agent” and as an existing “Lender”, and the other Lenders party hereto.
R E C I T A L S
A.Borrower, Agent and certain other Lenders have entered into a Credit Agreement dated as of February 15, 2019 (the “Original Credit Agreement”), as amended by that certain First Amendment to Credit Agreement dated as of November 12, 2019 (the “First Amendment”), and as amended by that certain Second Amendment to Credit Agreement dated as of February 14, 2020 (the “Second Amendment” and together with the Original Credit Agreement and the First Amendment, collectively, the “Credit Agreement”). All capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings given to them in the Credit Agreement.
B.Borrower and Lenders wish to amend the Credit Agreement to, among other things, (i) provide for a limited waiver of certain financial covenants, (ii) fund an Advance under the Revolving Credit Loan to paydown the existing Term Loan; (iii) extinguish the delayed draw feature of the Term Loan, and (iii) make certain additional amendments and modifications to certain of the terms, covenants and provisions in the Credit Agreement, all as set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing Recitals and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1.Recitals. The foregoing Recitals to this Amendment are hereby incorporated into and made part of this Amendment.
2.Waivers to Credit Agreement.
a.For the period consisting of two (2) calendar quarters commencing on July 1, 2020 and ending on the earlier of the Early Covenant Compliance Date (as defined below) or December 31, 2020 (the “Waiver Period”), the obligation of Borrower to comply with the Subject Provisions (defined below) shall be waived during such Waiver Period, and any failure of Borrower to comply with the Subject Provisions during the Waiver Period shall not result in a Default or Event of Default under the Loan Documents. For the avoidance of doubt, unless the Early Covenant Compliance Date occurs, compliance with the Subject Provisions shall be next tested with respect to the quarter ending March 31, 2021 and such compliance shall be determined by the financial statements delivered by Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with Section 7.4(b) of the Credit Agreement. “Subject Provisions” means exclusively (i) the minimum Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio set forth in Section 9.2 of the Credit Agreement, and (ii) the minimum Consolidated Tangible Net Worth set forth in Section 9.3 of the Credit Agreement. Borrower acknowledges that (a) this waiver is a limited waiver that applies only to compliance with the Subject Provisions during the Waiver Period as set forth herein and except as specifically stated herein is not an agreement by Lenders to forbear from exercising any of their default related rights or waive compliance with (i) the Subject Provisions for any period other than the Waiver Period, or (ii) any other covenant or agreement set forth in the Loan Documents, whether during the Waiver Period or otherwise, (b) Lenders expressly reserve all of their rights and remedies under the Loan Documents and applicable law with respect to the noncompliance by Borrower with respect to all other covenants and agreements set forth in the Loan Documents and with respect to any noncompliance with the Subject Provisions during any period other than the Waiver Period, and (c) Lenders’ agreement to forbear from exercising default-related rights and remedies regarding the Subject Provisions as described in this Section does not relate to or extend to any actions that Lenders may take necessary to the administration of the Loan and the Loan Documents or the protection, preservations or perfection of Lenders’ interest in any collateral, all as determined by Lenders in their sole discretion. Except as specifically modified herein, all of Lenders’ rights and remedies are cumulative and may be exercised by Lenders at any time in Lenders’ sole discretion. Lenders expect full and complete performance by Borrower of its other obligations under the Loan Documents as and when required, including its financial reporting requirements as modified herein. “Early Covenant Compliance Date” means any date after the Effective Date that
Borrower delivers to Agent a pro forma Compliance Certificate satisfactory to Agent and Lenders evidencing compliance with the financial covenants set forth in Section 9 of the Credit Agreement for the most recent trailing twelve (12) months, including compliance with the Subject Provisions without any waiver or modification thereto.
b.Except for the Advance contemplated by Section 6(b) of this Amendment, during the Waiver Period, Borrower shall be permitted to repay and reborrow amounts under the Revolving Credit Loans so long as the Obligations outstanding under the Revolving Credit Loans do not exceed $20,000,000.00, with each such Advance conditioned upon Borrower’s satisfaction of all of the terms and conditions to an Advance set forth in the Credit Agreement, except, and only except, for compliance with the Subject Provisions. At any time after the Early Covenant Compliance Date, Borrower shall have the right to repay and reborrow amounts under the Revolving Credit Loans, subject to Borrower’s compliance with the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement. If the Waiver Period ends on December 31, 2020, at any time after the date that Borrower delivers a pro forma Compliance Certificate to Agent satisfactory to Agent and Lenders that demonstrates compliance with the financial covenants set forth in Section 9 of the Credit Agreement for the most recent trailing twelve (12) months (a “Pro Forma Compliance Certificate”), Borrower shall have the right to repay and reborrow amounts under the Revolving Credit Loans, subject to Borrower’s satisfaction of all of the terms and conditions to an Advance set forth in the Credit Agreement, except, and only except, that Borrower’s obligation to deliver a Compliance Certificate shall be satisfied by Borrower’s delivery of a Pro Forma Compliance Certificate.
c.Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 9.9 of the Credit Agreement, during the Waiver Period Borrower and its Subsidiaries will not declare or make any distributions or other Restricted Payments, except (i) so long as no Default or Event of Default exists or would exist as a result thereof, Borrower may purchase or redeem Equity Interests in Borrower in an amount not to exceed $20,000,000 in the aggregate, as expressly permitted under Section 9.9 of the Credit Agreement, and (ii) Borrower may pay the minimum amount necessary for Borrower to maintain its status as a real estate investment trust under the Code and any Subsidiary may declare or pay any dividends to Borrower in accordance with Section 7.16 of the Credit Agreement.
d.Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 5.3, Section 5.4 or Section 5.5 of the Credit Agreement, during the Waiver Period, no Guarantor shall be released from the Guaranty, Pledge Agreement or any Obligations and Borrower shall have no right to add any Eligible Real Estate as a Pool Property, in either case, without the express consent of Agent.
3.Term Loan. From and after the Effective Date:
a.The Credit Agreement is hereby modified by deleting (i) all references to “Term Loan”, (ii) any defined term in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement which makes use of the words “Term Loan” as part of the defined term (such term herein referred to as a “Term Loan Phrase”), and (iii) all corresponding provisions in the Credit Agreement which solely refer and pertain to a “Term Loan” or a Term Loan Phrase. For the avoidance of doubt, any defined term which only refers to “Term Loan” in its definition and is not a Term Loan Phrase shall not be deleted but instead such definition shall be construed without reference to “Term Loan”.
b.The Term Loan Commitment of each Term Lender shall be withdrawn and no Term Lender shall have any further obligation to make a Term Loan to Borrower. Schedule 1.1 of the Credit Agreement shall be deleted in its entirety and replaced with Schedule 1.1 attached hereto and made a part hereof.
4.Amendments to Credit Agreement. From and after the Effective Date:
a.The definition of “LIBOR” in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby modified by adding the following as the last sentence thereof:

a.Section 4.5 of the Credit Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
“Section 4.5 Effect of Benchmark Transition Event.
a.Benchmark Replacement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, the Agent may amend this Agreement to replace LIBOR with a Benchmark Replacement. Any such amendment with respect to a Benchmark Transition Event will become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Agent has posted such amendment to all Lenders and the Borrower. No replacement of LIBOR with a Benchmark Replacement pursuant to this Section 4.5 will occur prior to the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date.
b.Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. In connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement.
c.Notices; Standards for Decisions and Determinations. The Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of (i) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date and Benchmark Transition Start Date, (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (iii) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes and (iv) the commencement or conclusion of any Benchmark Unavailability Period. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Agent or Lenders pursuant to this Section 4.5, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party hereto, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 4.5.
d.Benchmark Unavailability Period. Upon the Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, the Borrower may revoke any request for a Eurodollar Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Loans to be made, converted or continued during any Benchmark Unavailability Period and, failing that, the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any such request into a Loan Request for or conversion to Base Rate Loans. During any Benchmark Unavailability Period, the component of Base Rate based upon LIBOR will not be used in any determination of Base Rate.
e.Certain Defined Terms. As used in this Section 4.5:
“Benchmark Replacement” means the sum of: (a) the alternate benchmark rate (which may be based on SOFR) that has been selected by the Agent giving due consideration to (i) any selection or recommendation of a replacement rate or the mechanism for determining such a rate by the Relevant Governmental Body or (ii) any evolving or then-prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest as a replacement to LIBOR for U.S. dollar-denominated syndicated credit facilities and (b) the Benchmark Replacement Adjustment; provided that, if the Benchmark Replacement as so determined would be less than zero, the Benchmark Replacement will be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.
“Benchmark Replacement Adjustment” means, with respect to any replacement of LIBOR with an Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement for each applicable Interest Period, the spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, (which may be a positive or negative value or zero) that has been selected by the Agent giving due consideration to (i) any selection or recommendation of a spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, for the replacement of LIBOR with the applicable Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement by the Relevant Governmental Body or (ii) any evolving or then-prevailing market convention for determining a spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, for the replacement of LIBOR with the applicable Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement for U.S. dollar- denominated syndicated credit facilities at such time.
“Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes” means, with respect to any Benchmark Replacement, any technical, administrative or operational changes (including changes to the definition of “Base Rate,” the definition of “Interest Period,” timing and frequency of determining rates and making payments of interest and other administrative matters) that the Agent decides may be reasonably appropriate to reflect the adoption and implementation of such Benchmark Replacement and to permit the administration thereof by the Agent in a manner substantially consistent with market practice (or, if the Agent decides that adoption of any portion of such market practice is not administratively feasible or if the Agent determines that no market practice for the administration of the Benchmark Replacement exists, in such other manner of administration as the Agent decides is reasonably necessary in connection with the administration of this Agreement).
“Benchmark Replacement Date” means the earlier to occur of the following events with respect to LIBOR: (1) in the case of clause (1) or (2), of the definition of “Benchmark Transition Event,” the later of (a) the date of the public statement or publication of information referenced therein and (b) the date on which the administrator of LIBOR permanently or indefinitely ceases to provide LIBOR or (2) in the case of clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Transition Event,” the date of the public statement or publication of information referenced therein.

“Benchmark Transition Start Date” means the earlier of (a) the applicable Benchmark Replacement Date and (b) if such Benchmark Transition Event is a public statement or publication of information of a prospective event, the 90th day prior to the expected date of such event as of such public statement or publication of information (or if the expected date of such prospective event is fewer than 90 days after such statement or publication, the date of such statement or publication).
“Benchmark Unavailability Period” means, if a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred with respect to LIBOR and solely to the extent that LIBOR has not been replaced with a Benchmark Replacement, the period (x) beginning at the time that such Benchmark Replacement Date has occurred if, at such time, no Benchmark Replacement has replaced LIBOR for all purposes hereunder in accordance with this Section 4.5 and (y) ending at the time that a Benchmark Replacement has replaced LIBOR for all purposes hereunder pursuant to this Section 4.5.

To the extent that the Loan Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for swap agreements or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support “QFC Credit Support” and each such QFC a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Loan Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States):
In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Loan Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Loan Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that rights and remedies of the parties with respect to a Defaulting Lender shall in no event affect the rights of any Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.
As used in this Section 38, the following terms have the following meanings:
“BHC Act Affiliate” of a party means an “affiliate” (as such term is defined under, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 1841(k)) of such party.

(ii) a “covered bank” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 47.3(b); or
(iii) a “covered FSI” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 382.2(b).
“Default Right” has the meaning assigned to that term in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. §§ 252.81, 47.2 or 382.1, as applicable.
“QFC” has the meaning assigned to the term “qualified financial contract” in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 5390(c)(8)(D).”
