Where an opportunity for Shareholders to redeem in advance is provided ahead of a proposed increase to the Operating and Personnel Payment and Shareholders representing 50% or more of the issued Shares have voted in favor of the proposed increase, Shareholders will be provided with a reasonable notification period to enable them to redeem their Shares prior to the implementation of the increase.

of the Manager on behalf of the ICAV as an officer, director, employee or agent of, or with respect to, any other entity (each, an Indemnitee) shall be liable to the ICAV or any Subsidiary or any Shareholder for (i) any act or omission taken or suffered by an Indemnitee in connection with the conduct of the affairs of the ICAV or otherwise in connection with this Agreement or the matters contemplated herein, unless such act or omission resulted from fraud, bad faith, willful misconduct, gross negligence, a material breach of this Agreement which is not cured in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or a violation of applicable securities laws by such Indemnitee, and except that nothing herein shall constitute a waiver or limitation of any rights which a Shareholder of the ICAV may have under applicable securities laws or other laws and which may not be waived, or (ii) any mistake, negligence, dishonesty or bad faith of any broker or other agent of the ICAV selected and monitored by the Manager with reasonable care.
(b) To the extent that, at law or in equity, the Manager has duties (including fiduciary duties) and liabilities relating thereto to the ICAV or another Shareholder, the Manager acting under this Agreement or refraining from taking action under this Agreement, shall not be liable to the ICAV or to any such other Shareholder for its actions or inaction, taken or suffered in good faith and in reliance on the provisions of this Agreement, provided, that such action or inaction does not constitute fraud, bad faith, willful misconduct or gross negligence. The provisions of this Agreement, to the extent that they expand or restrict the duties and liabilities of the Manager otherwise existing at law or in equity, are agreed by the Shareholders to modify to that extent such other duties and liabilities of the Manager.
(c) The Manager may consult with legal counsel and accountants selected by it and any act or omission taken or suffered by it on behalf of the ICAV or in furtherance of the interests of the ICAV, taken or suffered in good faith and in reasonable reliance thereon, upon and in accordance with the advice of such counsel or accountants shall be full justification for any such act or omission, and the Manager shall be fully protected and held harmless in so acting or omitting to act; provided, such counsel or accountants were selected and monitored with reasonable care. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, the provisions of this Section shall not be construed so as to provide for the exculpation of any Indemnitee for any liability (including liability under U.S. federal or state securities laws (which includes liability for violation of the anti-fraud provisions contained in Section 206 of the Advisers Act) which, under certain circumstances, impose liability even on Persons that act in good faith), to the extent (but only to the extent) that such liability may not be waived, modified or limited under applicable law, but shall be construed so as to effectuate the provisions of this Section to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Section 19. Indemnification.
(a) To the fullest extent permitted by law, the ICAV shall indemnify and save harmless each Indemnitee from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, penalties, actions, judgments, costs and expenses (including amounts paid in satisfaction of judgments, in compromises and settlements, as fines and penalties and
legal or other costs and reasonable expenses of investigating or defending against any claim or alleged claim) of any nature whatsoever, known or unknown, liquidated or unliquidated, that are incurred by any Indemnitee or to which such Indemnitee may be subject by reason of its activities on behalf of the ICAV or any of its Subsidiaries or in furtherance of the interests of the ICAV or otherwise arising out of or in connection with the affairs of the ICAV or its Subsidiaries, including the performance by such Indemnitee of any of the Managers responsibilities under this Agreement and/or under the governing documents of any Subsidiary or otherwise in connection with the matters contemplated herein or therein; provided, that: (i) an Indemnitee shall be entitled to indemnification hereunder only to the extent that such Indemnitees conduct did not constitute fraud, bad faith, willful misconduct, gross negligence, a material breach of this Agreement which is not cured in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or a violation of applicable securities laws; (ii) nothing herein shall constitute a waiver or limitation of any rights which a Shareholder or the ICAV may have under applicable securities laws or other laws and which may not be waived; and (iii) the ICAVs obligations hereunder shall not apply with respect to (x) economic losses or tax obligations incurred by any Indemnitee as a result of such Indemnitees ownership of an interest in the ICAV or in Royalty Investments, (y) expenses of the ICAV that an Indemnitee has agreed to bear or (z) amounts recoverable by the Indemnitee from other sources (including without limitation insurance) as provided in Section 19(d). The satisfaction of any indemnification and any saving harmless pursuant to this Section shall be from and limited to the ICAV assets, and no Shareholder shall have any personal liability on account thereof. The conduct of the Manager and EPA Holdings shall be attributed to one another for purposes of determining whether indemnification is available pursuant to this Section and whether conduct meets the standards set forth in Section 18 (Exculpation).
(b) Expenses reasonably incurred by an Indemnitee in defense or settlement of any claim that may be subject to a right of indemnification hereunder shall be advanced by the ICAV prior to the final disposition thereof upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the Indemnitee to repay such amount to the extent that it shall be determined ultimately that such Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified hereunder.
(c) The right of any Indemnitee to the indemnification provided herein shall extend to such Indemnitees heirs, executors, administrators, successors, assigns and legal representatives and shall be cumulative of, and in addition to, any and all rights to which such Indemnitee may otherwise be entitled by contract or as a matter of law or equity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Indemnitee may have any other rights to indemnification from the ICAV or enter into, or make any claim under, any other agreement with the ICAV (whether direct or indirect) providing for indemnification except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement.
(d) Any Person entitled to indemnification from the ICAV hereunder shall first seek recovery under any other indemnity or any insurance policies by which such Person is indemnified or covered, as the case may be, but only to the extent that the indemnitor with respect to such indemnity or the insurer with respect to such insurance
policy provides (or acknowledges its obligation to provide) such indemnity or coverage on a timely basis, as the case may be, and, if such Person is other than the Manager, such Person shall obtain the written consent of the Manager prior to entering into any compromise or settlement which would result in an obligation of the ICAV to indemnify such Person; and if liabilities arise out of the conduct of the affairs of the ICAV and any other Person for which the Person entitled to indemnification from the ICAV hereunder was then acting in a similar capacity, the amount of the indemnification provided by the ICAV shall be limited to the ICAVs proportionate share thereof as determined by the Manager in light of its fiduciary duties to the ICAV and the Shareholders.
(e) Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, the provisions of this Section shall not be construed so as to provide for the indemnification of any Indemnitee for any liability (including liability under U.S. federal or state securities laws (which includes liability for violation of the anti-fraud provisions contained in Section 206 of the Advisers Act) which, under certain circumstances, impose liability even on Persons that act in good faith), to the extent (but only to the extent) that such indemnification would be in violation of law, but shall be construed so as to effectuate the provisions of this Section to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Section 20. Limitations on Reference to the Manager. The ICAV shall not distribute or circulate any sales literature, promotional or, save where required by applicable law, regulation or court order, other material which contains any reference to the Manager without the prior approval of the Manager, and, where practicable, shall submit in draft form all such materials requiring approval of the Manager, allowing sufficient time for review by the Manager and its counsel prior to any deadline for printing. If the Manager ceases to furnish services to the ICAV, the ICAV at its expense:
(a) as promptly as practicable, shall take all necessary action to cause the Organizational Documents to be amended to eliminate any reference to the Manager; and

The Manager and the ICAV shall meet to discuss renewal at least one year prior to the expiration of the Initial Term and any Renewal Term. The Central Bank may in its discretion replace the AIFM with another entity willing to act as AIFM where the Central Bank deems it necessary to do so.

termination; and (ii) the Manager shall forthwith deliver to the ICAV or as it shall direct all correspondence and records of all and every description relating to the affairs of the ICAV which are in the Managers possession or under the Managers control and shall not be entitled to any lien in respect of any of the foregoing. The termination of this Agreement shall be without prejudice to any rights that may have accrued hereunder to either party hereto against the other party hereto before such termination.
Section 22. Removal. Subject to the following provisions of this Section, during the Initial Term and each Renewal Term, this Agreement may only be terminated by the ICAV for Cause. If the Management Agreement with RP PLC, Old RPI or RP Holdings is terminated for Cause then this Agreement shall automatically be terminated. The ICAV shall have the right to terminate the Manager following (i) a determination of Cause by a court or governmental body of competent jurisdiction in a final judgement or (ii) an admission of Cause by the Manager or EPA Holdings. In the event that Mr. Legorreta commits an act constituting Cause (while he is acting as chief executive officer of RP PLC), such action shall be imputed to EPA Holdings and the Manager. Any act constituting Cause committed by any other executive of EPA Holdings or the Manager (including Mr. Legorreta if he is no longer acting as chief executive officer of RP PLC) shall not be imputed to EPA Holdings and the Manager if the Manager terminates such executives engagement with, employment by or relationship with the Manager and EPA Holdings within such reasonable period of time as may be agreed to by the Board of Directors; provided that if such executive is not terminated within such period of time then such Cause event shall be imputed to EPA Holdings and the Manager.

Exhibit A - Succession Plan
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of RP PLC, in consultation with the Manager, will develop temporary and permanent succession plans for senior management of the Manager, including Pablo Legorreta, Terrance Coyne, Chris Hite, George Lloyd, and James Reddoch. These succession plans will be updated and reviewed periodically with the Compensation Committee, which will report to the Board of Directors of RP PLC.
Temporary Succession Plan
The temporary succession plan:
will provide a plan for filling the position of the CEO and other member of the senior management on a temporary basis if such person is incapacitated, quits, is terminated, or is otherwise unable to fulfill his duties (Unavailable);
will name one or more current members of senior management of the Manager as potential interim CEO(s) in the event Mr. Legorreta or his successor is Unavailable; and
will also address potential replacements, contingent hires and/or other temporary arrangements for other members of the senior management of the Manager in the event such person is Unavailable.
The Compensation Committee, in consultation with the Manager, will assess and provide feedback to the Manager regarding the Managers senior management team, with the objective of evaluating the Managers internal capabilities to handle an executive transition, including the ability of certain executives to assume other senior executive roles on an interim or permanent basis, should it become necessary.

The search for a permanent successor may include current members of senior management of the Manager, whether or not named in the proposed in the temporary succession plan. The appointment of any permanent successor to the CEO shall be subject to the consent of a majority of the independent directors of the Board of Directors of RP PLC.
