8.No Partnership or Joint Venture. The Trust and the Advisor are not partners or joint venturers with each other and neither the terms of this Advisory Agreement nor the fact that the Trust and the Advisor have joint interests in any one or more investments shall be construed so as to make them such partners or joint venturers or impose any liability as such on either of them.
9.Fidelity Bond. The Advisor shall not be required to obtain or maintain a fidelity bond in connection with the performance of its services hereunder.
10.Compensation. The Advisor shall be paid, for the services rendered by it to the Trust pursuant to this Advisory Agreement, an annual advisory fee (the “Fees”) equal to (.70% of the Average Invested Real Estate Assets of the Trust (as defined below) as derived from the Trust’s consolidated balance sheet from time to time.
For purposes of this Agreement, “Average Invested Real Estate Assets” of the Trust shall be deemed to mean, for any period, the average of the aggregate book value of the consolidated assets of the Trust invested, directly or indirectly, in equity interests in and loans secured by real estate, before reserves for depreciation or bad debts or other similar noncash reserves, computed by taking the average of such values at the end of each month during such period; provided that, if the last day of such period (the “Termination Date”) is on or after the 15th, but prior to the last day, of any month, such consolidated assets at the Termination Date shall be included in computing such average as if the Termination Date occurred at the end of a month.
The Fees shall be computed within thirty (30) days following the end of each fiscal quarter. Such computations shall be based upon the Trust’s quarterly financial statements and shall be in reasonable detail. A copy of such computations shall promptly be delivered to the Advisor accompanied by payment of the Fees shown thereon to be due and payable.
The payment of the aggregate annual Fees paid for any fiscal year shall be subject to adjustment as of the end of each fiscal year. On or before the 30th day after public availability of the Trust’s annual audited financial statements for each fiscal year, the Trust shall deliver to the Advisor an Officer’s Certificate (a ‘Certificate’) reasonably acceptable to the Advisor and certified by an authorized officer of the Trust setting forth (i) the Average Invested Real Estate Assets for the Trust’s fiscal year ended upon the immediately preceding December 31, and (ii) the Trust’s computation of the Fees payable for said fiscal year.
If the aggregate annual Fees payable for said fiscal year as shown in such Certificate exceed the aggregate amounts previously paid with respect thereto by the Trust, the Trust shall include its payment for such deficit and deliver the same to the Advisor with such Certificate; provided, however, that if at the time such Certificate is prepared the Trust enjoys a credit against Fees not yet due pursuant to Section 13 hereof, the Trust shall apply such credit to offset such deficit and shall not make any payment pursuant to this paragraph except to the extent that such deficit exceeds such credit.
If the aggregate annual Fees payable for said fiscal year as shown in such Certificate are less than the aggregate amounts previously paid with respect thereto by the Trust, the Trust shall specify in such Certificate whether the Advisor should (i) remit to the Trust its payment in the amount equal to such difference (in which case the Advisor shall remit its payment within ten (10) days of receipt of such Certificate) or (ii) grant the Trust a credit against the Fees next coming due in the amount of such difference until such amount has been fully paid or otherwise discharged. All credits granted pursuant to clause (ii) of the previous sentence and pursuant to Section 13 hereof shall be aggregated and carried forward until the aggregate amount thereof shall have been applied to offset Fees and other amounts as provided herein.
Any difference between the Fees for any fiscal year as shown in such Certificate and the total amount of Fees for such fiscal year previously paid by the Trust, whether in favor of the Advisor or the Trust, shall bear interest (calculated on the basis of a 365-day year) at the rate of interest announced publicly by JP Morgan Chase & Co. of New York (“JPM”), in New York, New York, as such bank’s “base rate” as of the last day of such fiscal year, which interest shall accrue from and including the last day of such fiscal year to and excluding the date on which the amount of such difference shall be fully paid or otherwise discharged, and which interest, if payable by the Trust, may be offset as aforesaid by credits for Fees not yet payable.
11.Expenses of the Advisor. Without regard to the compensation received by the Advisor from the Trust pursuant to this Advisory Agreement, the Advisor shall bear the following expenses incurred in connection with the performance of its duties under this Advisory Agreement:
(a)employment expenses of the personnel employed by the Advisor (other than fees paid and reimbursement of expenses made to independent managers, independent contractors, mortgage servicers, consultants, managers, local property managers or agents employed by or on behalf of the Trust including such persons or entities which may be Affiliates of the Advisor when acting in any such capacity, all of which shall be the responsibility of the Trust), including but not limited to, salaries, wages, payroll taxes and the cost of employee benefit plans;
(b)travel and other expenses of directors, officers and employees of the Advisor, except out-of-pocket expenses of such persons who are Trustees or officers of the Trust incurred in their capacities as Trustees or officers of the Trust;
(c)rent, telephone, utilities, office furniture, equipment and machinery (including computers, to the extent utilized) and other office expenses of the Advisor, except to the extent such expenses relate solely to an office maintained by the Trust separate from the office of the Advisor; and
(d)miscellaneous administrative expenses incurred in supervising, monitoring and inspecting real property and other investments of the Trust or relating to performance by the Advisor of its obligations hereunder.
12.Expenses of the Trust. Except as expressly otherwise provided in this Advisory Agreement, the Trust shall pay all its expenses not payable by the Advisor, and,
without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is specifically agreed that the following expenses of the Trust shall be paid by the Trust and shall not be paid by the Advisor:
(a)the cost of borrowed money;

(k)legal, accounting and auditing fees and expenses; and
(l)expenses relating to any office or office facilities maintained by the Trust separate from the office of the Advisor.

(b)the lowest of any applicable operating expense limitations that may be imposed by law or regulation in a state in which any securities of the Trust are or will be qualified for sale or by a national securities exchange on which any securities of the Trust are or may be listed, as such limitations may be altered from time to time.
For purposes of this Advisory Agreement, ‘Operating Expenses’ for any fiscal year shall be calculated on the basis of the Trust’s annual audited financial statements and shall be deemed to mean the aggregate annual expenses regarded as ordinary operating expenses in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (including the Fees), exclusive of the following:

(ii)noncash provisions for depreciation, depletion and amortization;

On or before the 30th day after public availability of the Trust’s annual audited financial statements for each fiscal year, the Advisor will refund (to the extent of the aggregate Fees it has received for such fiscal year) to the Trust the amount, if any, by which the Operating Expenses exceeded the Limitation unless the majority of the Independent Trustees shall have made a finding that based upon such unusual and non-recurring factors as they deem the case, a higher level of expenses is justified for such year, any such findings and the reasons therefore shall be referenced in the Minutes of the meeting of the Trustees.
14.Limits of Advisor Responsibility. The Advisor assumes no responsibility other than to render the services described herein in good faith and shall not be responsible for any action of the Trustees in following or declining to follow any advice or recommendation of the Advisor. The Advisor, its shareholders, directors, officers, employees and Affiliates will not be liable to the Trust, its shareholders, or others, except by reason of acts constituting bad faith, misconduct or negligence.

Directors, officers, employees and agents of the Advisor or of its Affiliates may serve as Directors, officers, employees, agents, nominees or signatories of the Trust.

Such persons shall receive from the Trust no compensation for their services to the Trust in any such capacities.

Section 19 hereof shall govern the rights, liabilities and obligations of the parties upon termination of this Advisory Agreement, and except as provided in Section 19, such termination shall be without further liability of either party to the other, other than for breach or violation of this Agreement prior to termination.
17.Assignment. The Trust may terminate this Advisory Agreement at any time in the event of its assignment by the Advisor except an assignment to a corporation, association, trust, or other successor organization which may take over the property and carry on the affairs of the Advisor, provided that following such assignment the Persons who controlled
the operations of the Advisor on the date that such Advisor became advisor to the Trust shall control the operation of the successor organization, including the performance of its duties under this Advisory Agreement, and they shall be bound by the same restrictions by which they were bound prior to such assignment; however, if at any time subsequent to such an assignment such Persons shall cease to control the operations of the successor organization, the Trust may thereupon terminate this Agreement.

This Advisory Agreement shall not be assignable by the Trust without the prior written consent of the Advisor, except in the case of any assignment by the Trust to a Person which is the successor to the Trust, in which case such successor shall be bound hereby and by the terms of said assignment in the same manner and to the same extent as the Trust is bound hereby.

The Advisor agrees that, if any of the events specified in Paragraphs (a), (b) or (c) of this Section 18 shall occur, it will give written notice thereof to the Trustees as promptly as practicable, and in any event within seven (7) days, following the occurrence of such event.

From and after the effective date of any termination of this Agreement pursuant to Sections 16, 17 or 18 hereof, the Advisor shall be entitled to no compensation for services rendered hereunder, but shall be paid, on a pro rata basis, all compensation due for services performed prior to such termination, subject to reduction as set forth in the Certificate referred to below. To the extent that any calculations under this Agreement are to be performed on the basis of annual audited, or quarterly or monthly unaudited, financial statements, and if such termination shall become effective on a date other than the end of a year, quarter or month, then such calculations shall nonetheless be performed on the basis of available financial information.

To the extent that (i) Fees payable for such period as shown on such Certificate shall exceed (ii) the sum of (A) Fees actually paid for such period plus (B) any amounts required to be refunded by the Advisor with respect to such period pursuant to Section 13 plus (C) all credits accumulated by the Trust pursuant to Sections 10 and 13 and not theretofore applied to offset Fees or other amounts hereunder, the Trust shall make a payment to the Advisor in the amount of such excess.
