(x) Out-of-pocket expenses of providing services for and 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;
(xi) Audit, accounting and legal fees, and other fees for professional services relating to the operations of the Company and all such fees incurred at the request, or on behalf of, the Board or any other committee of the Board;
(xii) Out-of-pocket costs for the Company to comply with all applicable laws, regulations and ordinances;

9.02 Initial Organization and Offering Expenses.
(i) The Advisor has agreed to pay, on behalf of the Company, all Organization and Offering Expenses (less Selling Commissions and Distribution Fees) (the Initial O&O Costs) through the first anniversary of the date on which the Company satisfies the minimum offering requirement for the Initial Public Offering (the Escrow Break Anniversary).
(ii) The Company shall not be required to reimburse the Advisor for payment of the Initial O&O Costs prior to the Escrow Break Anniversary. Following the Escrow Break Anniversary, the Company will reimburse the Advisor for payment of the Initial O&O Costs ratably over a 36-month period; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to pay any amounts that as a result of such payment would
cause the aggregate payments for Organization and Offering Expenses (less Selling Commissions and Distribution Fees) paid to the Advisor to exceed 1% of gross offering proceeds of the Companys Offerings as of such payment date (the 1% Cap). Any amounts not reimbursed in any period shall be included in determining any reimbursement for a subsequent period. The Company may, in its sole discretion, pay amounts to the Advisor in excess of the ratable amount for the Initial O&O Costs; provided that the payment of such amounts is not in excess of the 1% Cap.
(iii) After the Escrow Break Anniversary, the Advisor, in its sole discretion, may pay some or all of the Organization and Offering Expenses but is not required to do so. To the extent the Advisor pays such additional Organization and Offering Expenses, the Company will be obligated to reimburse the Advisor subject to the 1% Cap.
9.03 Timing of and Additional Limitations on Reimbursements.
(i) Operating Expenses incurred by the Advisor on behalf of the Company and reimbursable pursuant to this Article 9 shall be reimbursed to the Advisor as set forth herein. The Advisor shall prepare a statement documenting the Operating Expenses of the Company during each quarter (the Quarterly Statement) and shall deliver the Quarterly Statement to the Company within 45 days after the end of each quarter upon receipt of which the Company shall remit payment within 30 days.
(ii) Commencing upon the earlier of the fourth fiscal quarter after (i) the Company makes an initial Investment or (ii) six months after commencement of the Initial Public Offering, the following limitation on Operating Expenses shall apply: the Company shall not reimburse the Advisor at the end of any fiscal quarter for Operating Expenses that in the four consecutive fiscal quarters then ended (the Expense Year) exceed (the Excess Amount) the greater of 2.0% of Average Invested Assets or 25.0% of Net Income (the 2%/25% Guidelines) for such year unless the Board determines that such excess was justified, based on unusual and nonrecurring factors that the Board deems sufficient. If the Board does 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. If the Board determines such excess was justified, then, within 60 days after the end of any fiscal quarter of the Company for which total reimbursed Operating Expenses for the Expense Year exceed the 2%/25% Guidelines, the Advisor, at the direction of the Board, shall cause such fact to be disclosed to the Stockholders in writing (or the Company shall disclose such fact to the Stockholders in the next quarterly report of the Company or by filing a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC within 60 days of such quarter end), together with an explanation of the factors the Board considered in determining that such excess expenses were justified. The Company will ensure that such determination will be reflected in the minutes of the meetings of the Board. All figures used in the foregoing computation shall be determined in accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis. Based on the date that the Company has made its initial Investment, the limitation set forth in this Section 9.03(ii) shall become applicable commencing October 1, 2018.
(iii) In addition to limitation set forth in Section 9.03(ii) above and subject to Section 9.03(iv) below, any Operating Expenses paid by the Advisor, incurred by the Company, or otherwise not invoiced to the Company, shall not be reimbursement obligations of the Company if such obligation would directly result in the Companys NAV per share for any class of Shares for such quarter to be less than $25.00; provided, that the Company may incur and record such obligation to reimburse the Advisor, even if it would result in the Companys NAV per share for any class of Shares for such quarter to be less than $25.00, if the Board determines that the reasons for the Companys NAV to be less than $25.00 were unrelated to the Companys obligation to reimburse the Advisor for certain Operating Expenses.
(iv) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, all or a portion of the Operating Expenses that have not been invoiced to the Company in any Quarterly Statement or reimbursed by the Company for any given quarter (Unreimbursed Operating Expenses) may be, in the sole discretion of the Advisor, (a) waived by the Advisor, (b) subject to Section 9.03(ii) and (iii) above, reimbursed to the Advisor in any subsequent quarter, or (c) reimbursed to the Advisor in connection with a liquidity event or termination of this Agreement. Any Operating Expenses reimbursed to the Advisor under this Section 9.03(iv) shall be subject to, among other things, the Board approval requirements of Section 9.03(ii).
In the event of a liquidity event or termination of this Agreement, the Company will reimburse Unreimbursed Operating Expenses (i) immediately prior to or upon the occurrence of a liquidity event, including (A) a Listing or (B) a merger, consolidation or a sale of substantially all of the Companys assets or any similar transaction or any transaction pursuant to which a majority of the Companys board of directors then in office are replaced or removed, or (ii) upon the termination of this Agreement by the Company or by the Advisor. In each such case, the Company will reimburse the Advisor after the Company has fully invested the proceeds from the Offering and the Stockholders have received, or are deemed to have received, in the aggregate, cumulative distributions equal to their invested capital plus a 6.0% cumulative, non-compounded annual pre-tax return on such invested capital.
The Sponsor and the Advisor hereby agree that any reimbursement of the Unreimbursed Operating Expenses to the Advisor pursuant to this Section 9.03(iv) will be made on a pro rata basis with the reimbursements made pursuant to Section 1.02 of the Reimbursement Agreement between the Company and the Sponsor, dated as of August 10, 2020, as amended.
Should: (i) the Operating Partnership request that the Advisor or any Affiliate or any manager, officer or employee of the Advisor or Affiliate render services for the Company other than as set forth in this Agreement; or (ii) there be changes to the regulatory environment in which the Advisor or Company operates that would increase significantly the level of services performed such that the costs and expenses borne by the Advisor for which the Advisor is not entitled to separate reimbursement for personnel and related employment direct costs and overhead under Article 9 of this Agreement would increase significantly, such services shall be separately compensated at such rates and in such amounts as are agreed by the Advisor and the Independent Directors, subject to the limitations contained in the Charter, and shall not be deemed to be services pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
The Advisor agrees that, with respect to any Shares now or hereinafter owned by it or its Affiliates, none of them will vote or consent on matters submitted to the Stockholders of the Company regarding: (i) the removal of the Advisor or any of its Affiliates as the Advisor; or (ii) any transaction between the Company and the Advisor or any of its Affiliates. This voting restriction shall survive until such time that the Advisor or any of its Affiliates is no longer serving as the Advisor.
RELATIONSHIP OF ADVISOR AND COMPANY;
OTHER ACTIVITIES OF THE ADVISOR
12.01 Relationship. The Company 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. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the Advisor from engaging in other activities, including, without limitation, the rendering of advice to other Persons (including other REITs) and the management of other programs advised, sponsored or organized by the Advisor or its Affiliates. Nor shall this Agreement limit or restrict the right of any manager, director, officer, employee or equityholder of the Advisor or its Affiliates to engage in any other business or to render services of any kind to any other Person. The Advisor may, with respect to any investment in which the Company is a participant, also render advice and service to each and every other participant therein. The Advisor shall promptly disclose to the Board the existence of any condition or circumstance, existing or anticipated, of which it has knowledge, that creates or could create a conflict of interest between the Advisors obligations to the Company and its obligations to or its interest in any other Person.
12.02 Time Commitment. The Advisor shall, and shall cause its Affiliates and their respective employees, officers and agents to, devote to the Company such time as shall be reasonably necessary to
conduct the business and affairs of the Company in an appropriate manner consistent with the terms of this Agreement. The Company acknowledges that the Advisor and its Affiliates and their respective employees, officers and agents may also engage in activities unrelated to the Company and may provide services to Persons other than the Company or any of its Affiliates.
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 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 InterestAllocation of Investment Opportunities in any Prospectus (as may be amended from time to time) shall govern the allocation of the opportunity among the Company, any of its Affiliates and any investment vehicles sponsored or managed by the Sponsor or any of their Affiliates.
THE CANTOR NAME
The Company acknowledges and agrees that the Sponsor and its Affiliates have a proprietary interest in the name Cantor. Except upon the express prior written consent of Sponsor, on a case by case basis, which if given, may be withdrawn at any time in the sole discretion of Sponsor, the Company shall not (and shall cause its Affiliates and each of its and their partners, officers, directors, employees and agents, whether present or future (collectively, Personnel) not to): (i) use, apply for or register in any manner, form or jurisdiction whatsoever any of Sponsors or any of Sponsors Affiliates name(s), trade name(s), logo(s), trademark(s), service mark(s), business, trade or corporate name(s), Internet domain name(s), social media/username domain(s), or sub-domain name(s), in each case, whether registered or unregistered, or any variations, translations, or transliterations thereof, or any terms confusingly similar to any of the foregoing, including without limitation, the name Cantor (collectively, the Names and Marks), or (ii) sublicense the Names and Marks to any third party or grant any third party the right to use the Names and Marks.
The Company acknowledges and agrees (and shall cause its Personnel to acknowledge and agree) that: (i) Sponsor is and shall remain at all times the sole and exclusive owner of all right, title and interest in and to the Names and Marks and any and all proprietary rights therein and thereto, (ii) nothing contained herein creates, shall create, nor shall be construed as a grant of, any right, title or interest in or to any Names and Marks or any proprietary rights therein or thereto, (iii) all right, title and interest in and to the Names and Marks is expressly reserved by Sponsor, and (iv) the Company and its Personnel shall keep the Names and Marks free from all liens, mortgages, or other encumbrances.
The Company recognizes the value of the goodwill associated with the Names and Marks and the proprietary rights therein and thereto. Should Sponsor provide its written consent to use the Names and Marks, the Company agrees that (i) any use of the Names and Marks and any goodwill arising therefrom, shall inure solely to the benefit of Sponsor, (ii) it will use the Names and Marks only in accordance with and subject to Sponsors specification, direction and information, and (iii) it shall fully cooperate (and shall ensure that its Personnel fully cooperate) with Sponsor as reasonably required from time to time by Sponsor to perfect or otherwise secure all rights, title and interest in any and all Names and Marks.
Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, or upon Sponsors withdrawal of any written consent by Sponsor to use the Names and Marks, or if at any time the Company ceases to retain the Advisor or one of its Affiliates to perform advisory services for the Company: (i) all rights granted to the Company under this Agreement shall immediately terminate and revert to Sponsor, (ii) the Company will immediately and permanently cease all use of the Names and Marks, (iii) the Company shall immediately change its name and the names of any of its subsidiaries to a name that does not contain the name Cantor or any other word or words that might, in the sole discretion of the Sponsor, be susceptible of indication of some form of relationship between the Company and the Sponsor or any of Sponsors Affiliates, and (iv) the Company shall promptly return to Sponsor or, at Sponsors option, destroy, at the Companys expense, all records and copies of technical, marketing, advertising, sales, and
promotional material in its possession bearing the Names and Marks. Consistent with the foregoing, it is specifically recognized that the Sponsor 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 loans, real estate-related debt securities and other real estate assets) and financial and service organizations having Cantor as a part of their name, all without the need for any consent (and without the right to object thereto) by the Company. The Sponsor shall govern the Companys use of the name Cantor and the Companys use of the Cantor name will be in strict accordance with any quality standards and specifications that may be established by the Advisor and communicated to Company from time to time.
TERM AND TERMINATION OF THE AGREEMENT
14.01 Term. This Agreement shall have an initial term of one year from the Effective Date and may be renewed for an unlimited number of successive one-year terms upon mutual consent of the parties.

Any such renewal must be approved by the Independent Directors.
14.02 Termination by the Parties. This Agreement may be terminated:
(i) immediately by the Company or the Operating Partnership for Cause or upon the bankruptcy of the Advisor;
(ii) upon 60 days written notice without Cause and without penalty by a majority of the Independent Directors of the Company or the Advisor; or

(ii) The Advisor shall promptly upon termination:
(a) pay over to the Company and the Operating Partnership all money collected and held for the account of the Company and the Operating Partnership pursuant to this Agreement, if any, after deducting any accrued compensation and reimbursement for its expenses to which it is then entitled;

This Agreement shall not be assigned by the Company or the Operating Partnership without the consent of the Advisor, except in the case of an assignment by the Company or the Operating Partnership to a corporation or other organization that is a successor to all of the assets, rights and obligations of the Company or the Operating Partnership, 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 Operating Partnership are bound by this Agreement. Nothing herein shall be deemed to prohibit or otherwise restrict any transfers or additional issuances of equity interests in the Advisor nor shall any such transfer or issuance be deemed an assignment for purposes of this Article 15.
INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
16.01 Indemnification. Except as prohibited by the restrictions provided in this Section 16.01, Section 16.02 and Section 16.03, the Company and the Operating Partnership shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Advisor and its Affiliates, including their respective officers, directors, equity holders, partners and employees, from all liability, claims, damages or losses arising in the performance of their duties hereunder, and related expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees, to the extent such liability, claims, damages or losses and related expenses are not fully reimbursed by insurance.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not indemnify the Advisors or its Affiliates for any loss, liability or expense 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; or (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 SEC 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.
16.02 Limitation on Indemnification. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company and the Operating Partnership shall not provide for indemnification of the Advisor or its Affiliates for any liability or loss suffered by any of them, nor shall any of them be held harmless for any loss or liability suffered by the Company, unless all of the following conditions are met:

(ii) The Advisor or its Affiliates were acting on behalf of or performing services for the Company or the Operating Partnership.
(iii) Such liability or loss was not the result of negligence or misconduct by the Advisor or its Affiliates.
(iv) Such indemnification or agreement to hold harmless is recoverable only out of the Companys net assets and not from the Stockholders.
16.03 Limitation on Payment of Expenses. The Company shall pay or reimburse reasonable legal expenses and other costs incurred by the Advisors or its Affiliates in advance of the final disposition of a proceeding only if (in addition to the procedures required by the Maryland General Corporation Law, as amended from time to time) all of the following are satisfied: (a) the proceeding relates to acts or omissions with respect to the performance of duties or services on behalf of the Company or the Operating Partnership, (b) the legal proceeding was initiated by a third party who is not a Stockholder or, if by a Stockholder acting in his or her capacity as such, a court of competent jurisdiction approves such advancement and (c) the Advisor or its Affiliates undertake to repay the amount paid or reimbursed by the Company or the Operating Partnership, together with the applicable legal rate of interest thereon, if it is ultimately determined that the particular indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification.
16.04 Indemnification by Advisor. The Advisor shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the Operating Partnership from contract or other liability, claims, damages, taxes or losses and related expenses including attorneys fees, to the extent that such liability, claims, damages, taxes or losses and related expenses are not fully reimbursed by insurance and are incurred by reason of the Advisors bad faith, fraud, willful misconduct or gross negligence; provided, however, that 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.
