In the event that the Operating Partnership refinances the assumed debt on the Property (the “A Note”) during the current term of the B Note, if such refinance provides proceeds in excess of A Note balance, the Operating Partnership shall make an additional distribution to the Contributor, to be applied toward the principal balance of the B Note, equal to the amount of any excess proceeds from the new loan balance in excess of 60% LTV with respect to the Property but not to exceed the existing principal balance of the B Note.

Distributions pursuant to Section 2.11 of the Agreement shall be made in accordance with Contributor’s distributable cash flow as defined below:

R E C I T A L S:

A.The Operating Partnership and Contributor have entered into a Contribution Agreement, dated as of September 1, 2020, as amended (the “Contribution Agreement”), pursuant to which the Contributor has agreed to contribute property to the Operating Partnership, such property located at 255 North Blackhawk Street, Aurora, CO 80011 (the “Hotel”).

B.The agreement of the Restricted Parties to deliver this Agreement was a material inducement to Operating Partnership in entering into the Purchase Agreement.  

C.The Operating Partnership, as the owner of the Hotel from and after the date of closing of the Contribution Agreement, desires to preclude the Restricted Parties from competing against it during the term of this Agreement.


For valuable consideration, the parties agree to the following covenants and agreements set forth in this Agreement and in the Contribution Agreement:

1.1Non-Competition.  The Restricted Parties covenant and agree that, for a period of 4 years beginning on the closing date of the Purchase Agreement (the “Closing Date”), neither the Restricted Parties, nor any entity controlled by the Restricted Parties (an “Affiliate”) will, without the prior written consent of the Operating Partnership, directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, join, control, renovate (or otherwise build) or engage or participate in the ownership, management, operation, or control of, or be connected as a shareholder, director, officer, agent, partner, joint venturer, lender, employee, consultant or advisor with, any business or organization any part of which engages in the business of hotel or motel ownership or management or is in competition with any of the business activities of the Operating Partnership, or any affiliate of the Operating Partnership within the Non-Competition Area.  

1.2Geographic Restriction. The term “Non-Competition Area” in this Agreement means the area within a 25-mile radius of the Hotel.  This provision will not apply to any property that was owned by the Contributor or the Interested Parties, either directly or indirectly through an affiliated entity, prior to the Effective Date of the Contribution Agreement, and will not restrict the Interested Parties, individually or as

owners or employees of an entity from managing or consulting regarding one or more hotel(s) or motel(s) under management agreement for owner(s) or lender(s) which either or both Interested Parties: (a) do business with prior to the Effective Date, (b) are part of a multi-property management relationship with owner(s); or a lender(s); or (c) is a property in receivership or foreclosure controlled by a lender.

1.3Confidential Information.

(a)On and after the Closing Date, the Restricted Parties will not use or disclose to anybody, and will cause all of their respective Affiliates to refrain from disclosing, any Confidential Information except:  (a) where necessary to comply with any legal obligation, such as a court order or subpoena, provided the Restricted Parties will first promptly notify the Operating Partnership prior to any such disclosure and permit Operating Partnership to intervene to block such disclosure; (b) where necessary, to the Restricted Parties’ attorneys and accountants, provided that they will have first been apprised of the limitations of this Agreement and will have agreed to be comply with and be bound by such limitations; or (c) where the Restricted Parties have obtained the express, prior written consent from the Operating Partnership.

(b)The term “Confidential Information” includes but is not limited to information specific to the Hotel, including but not limited to: customer lists, contact information, needs, preferences and history of service; business operations and methods; training materials; marketing plans; customer relations information; service and operations forms; practices, procedures, policies and guidelines; sales information; supplier/vendor agreements and information; and all other information, lists, records and data relating to or dealing with the business operations or activities of the Hotel, the disclosure of which may provide valuable benefits to any other person or entity or which would embarrass or damage the Hotel, Operating Partnership or their affiliates, monetarily or otherwise.  Furthermore, the term “Confidential Information” is intended to be construed broadly, including information in all forms, written or oral, on paper or stored electronically or in any other medium, and includes all originals, summaries, portions and copies of any such information.  Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) was widely known in the industry at the time of disclosure to the Restricted Party, or (ii) becomes widely known or readily available other than by a breach of this Agreement.

1.4Non-Solicitation; Non-Interference.  Except with the prior written approval of the Operating Partnership, for a period of 4 years after the Closing Date, neither the Restricted Parties nor their respective Affiliates will (a) employ or offer to employ any person who was principally employed at the Hotel on the Closing Date, (b) solicit, recruit, or encourage any employee or independent contractor of the Hotel or Operating Partnership to leave his or her employment, (c) hire, employ or cause to be hired, or establish a business with, any person who was employed at the Hotel, within the 12-month period preceding the Closing Date, (d) solicit any business clients of the Hotel or encourage them to terminate any contracts, and (e) interfere with or encourage any adjustments to long term negotiated rate clientele.  In addition, any attempt by any Restricted Party to induce others to terminate any contracts, employment, or independent contractor relationship with Operating Partnership or the Hotel, or any effort by any Restricted Party to interfere with any of the relationships between each of the Operating Partnership and the Hotel and any of their business clients, employees, or independent contractors, would be harmful and damaging to the Operating Partnership. For purposes of this Section 1.3, an “employee” will include any person who is a common law employee or who is an independent contractor providing personal services.

1.5Non-Disparagement.  The Restricted Parties will not: (a) make any disparaging or defamatory statements about Operating Partnership, the Hotel or their affiliates, or (b) authorize, encourage or participate with anyone to make such statements.

1.6Reasonableness; Independent Covenants.  The Restricted Parties acknowledge that the restrictions set forth in this Agreement are reasonable and necessary to protect the legitimate business interests of Operating Partnership and the Hotel from and after the Closing Date.  The Restricted Parties further acknowledge that all restrictions in this Agreement are reasonable in all respects, including duration, territory and scope of activity restricted.


(a)The Restricted Parties agree that if they or any of their Affiliates engage or threaten to engage in any activity that constitutes a violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement, Operating Partnership will have the right and remedy to have the provisions of this Agreement specifically enforced by law or by any court having jurisdiction.

(b)The Restricted Parties agree a breach of this Agreement would cause immediate irreparable injury to Operating Partnership and/or the Hotel and that money damages would not provide an adequate remedy at law for any breach. Further, without limiting any other legal or equitable remedies available to it, Operating Partnership will be entitled to obtain equitable relief by temporary restraining order, preliminary and permanent injunction or otherwise from any court of competent jurisdiction (without the requirement of posting a bond or other security), including, without limitation, injunctive relief to prevent the Restricted Parties’ failure to comply with the terms and conditions of Section 1 of this Agreement.  Such right and remedy will be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and remedies available to Operating Partnership at law or in equity, including the right to seek monetary damages.

(c)The applicable 4-year period of the covenants contained in Section 1.4 above will be extended on a day for day basis for each day during which a Restricted Party is in violation of the covenant, so that each Restricted Party is restricted from engaging in the activities prohibited by the covenant for the full 4-year time period.

(d)The Restricted Parties agree that the existence of any claim or cause of action by a Restricted Party against Operating Partnership, whether predicated on this Agreement or otherwise, will not constitute a defense to the enforcement by Operating Partnership of the covenants and restrictions in this Agreement.

1.8Construction.  The parties acknowledge that the parties and their counsel have reviewed and revised this Agreement and that the normal rule of construction to the effect that any ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party will not be employed in the interpretation of this Agreement or any exhibits or amendments hereto.

1.9Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement will, for any reason, be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such judgment will not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of this Agreement but will be confined in its operation to the provision or provisions hereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment will have been rendered, and this Agreement

will be construed as if such provision had never existed, unless such construction would operate as an undue hardship on Contributor or Operating Partnership or would constitute a substantial deviation from the general intent of the parties as reflected in this Agreement.

1.10Notices.  All notices, requests, demands, and other communications under this Agreement will be in writing and will be sent by hand messenger, electronic facsimile transmission, electronic mail (e-mail), reputable overnight courier, or certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested.  Notices and other communications will be deemed to have been duly given, as applicable (i) if by hand delivery, on the date of delivery, if such date is a business day (or if such date is not a business day, then on the first business day following such date), (ii) if by electronic facsimile transmission, the date of transmission as evidenced by automated date and time confirmation from sender’s machine, (iii) if given by e-mail, the communication is instantaneous and the day of receipt can be designated to be the same day as sending and a written copy must also be sent via certified mail, (iv) if given by overnight courier, 1 business day after deposit with the overnight courier, or (v) if given by certified mail, 1 business day after deposit with the United States Post Office.  Notices will be addressed as set forth below, or to any other address that the parties will designate in writing:
