Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Merger Agreement

On July 23, 2023, Sculptor Capital Management, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Sculptor” or the “Company”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (including the schedules and exhibits thereto, the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Sculptor, Rithm Capital Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Rithm”), Sculptor Capital LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Sculptor (“Capital LP”), Sculptor Capital Advisors LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Sculptor (“Advisors LP”), Sculptor Capital Advisors II LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Sculptor (“Advisors II LP” and, collectively with Capital LP and Advisors LP, the “Operating Partnerships” and each Operating Partnership, in its capacity as the limited partnership surviving the LP Mergers (as defined below), a “Surviving Limited Partnership” and, collectively, the “Surviving Limited Partnerships”), Calder Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and subsidiary of Rithm (“Merger Sub Inc.”), Calder Sub I, LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Rithm (“Merger Sub I”), Calder Sub II, LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Rithm (“Merger Sub II”), and Calder Sub III, LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Rithm (“Merger Sub III” and, collectively with Merger Sub I and Merger Sub II, the “LP Merger Subs” and, collectively with Merger Sub Inc., the “Merger Subs”). The Merger Agreement provides for, among other things, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, (i) the merger of Merger Sub Inc. with and into Sculptor, with Sculptor surviving such merger as the surviving corporation (the “Surviving Corporation”) (the “Public Merger”), (ii) the merger of Merger Sub I with and into Capital LP, with Capital LP surviving such merger as the surviving partnership (“LP Merger I”), (iii) the merger of Merger Sub II with and into Advisors LP, with Advisors LP surviving such merger as the surviving partnership (“LP Merger II”), and (iv) the merger of Merger Sub III with and into Advisors II LP, with Advisors II LP surviving such merger as the surviving partnership (“LP Merger III” and, collectively with LP Merger I and LP Merger II, the “LP Mergers,” and the LP Mergers, collectively with the Public Merger, the “Mergers” and collectively with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “Transactions”). Each capitalized term used herein but not otherwise defined has the meaning given to it in the Merger Agreement.

The Public Merger will become effective at the time the Certificate of Merger has been filed with the Delaware Secretary of State or at such later effective time and date that is agreed to by Rithm and Sculptor and specified in the Certificate of Merger (the “Effective Time”) and the LP Mergers will become effective at the time the applicable LP Certificates of Merger have been filed with the Delaware Secretary of State or at such later effective time and date that is agreed to by Rithm and Sculptor and specified in the LP Certificates of Merger (the “LP Mergers Effective Time”).

Sculptor’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), acting on the unanimous recommendation of a special committee formed for the purpose of considering strategic alternatives for the Company (the “Special Committee”), unanimously approved the terms of the Merger Agreement and unanimously recommended the approval of the Transactions by the Company’s stockholders. The Special Committee also instructed that the general partner of the Operating Partnerships (the “General Partner”) to approve the Merger Agreement and Transactions and the General Partner has approved the Merger Agreement and the Transactions accordingly.

Effect of Public Merger on Capital Stock

On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, (i) each share of Class A common stock, $0.01 par value per share, of Sculptor (the “Class A Common Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (but excluding (x) any shares of Sculptor Common Stock (as defined below) that are owned directly by Rithm, Merger Sub Inc. or any of their subsidiaries immediately prior to the Effective Time or held in treasury of Sculptor, (y) any shares of Sculptor Common Stock as to which appraisal rights have been properly exercised and (z) any unvested Sculptor Restricted Stock Awards (as defined below and treatment of which is described below) to be cancelled without payment in respect thereof pursuant to Section 3.06(c) of the Merger Agreement) will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to $11.15, without interest (the “Public Merger Consideration”), (ii) each share of Class B common stock, $0.01 par value per share, of Sculptor (the “Class B Common Stock” and, together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Sculptor Common Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be cancelled and no payment will be made in respect thereof and (iii) each issued and outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Merger Sub Inc. issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted into and become one (1) fully paid and non-assessable share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Surviving Corporation.

 


In addition, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, warrants for the purchase of Class A Common Stock (the “Sculptor Warrants”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will remain outstanding, but will, upon any subsequent exercise of such Sculptor Warrant, be entitled to receive only an amount in cash equal to the Public Merger Consideration less the per-share exercise price for such Sculptor Warrant as set forth in the applicable Sculptor Warrant for each share of Sculptor Common Stock for which such Sculptor Warrant was exercisable immediately prior to the closing of the Transactions (the “Closing”), provided that the holder of any Sculptor Warrant may notify the Surviving Corporation in accordance with the terms of such Sculptor Warrant before the 30th day after a Change of Control (as defined in each Sculptor Warrant) that such holder is exercising the holder’s right to cause Sculptor to purchase such Sculptor Warrant from such holder for the Black-Scholes value of the remaining unexercised portion of such Sculptor Warrant in accordance with its terms.

Effect of LP Mergers on Operating Partnership Units

On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the LP Mergers Effective Time, each Class A common unit of the Operating Partnerships (“LP Class A Unit”), Class A-1 common unit of the Operating Partnerships (“LP Class A-1 Unit”), Class E common unit of the Operating Partnerships (“LP Class E Unit”), Class P common unit of the Operating Partnerships (“LP Class P Unit”) and Class P-4 common unit of the Operating Partnerships (“LP Class P-4 Unit”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time that is vested at the LP Mergers Effective Time or vests as a result of the consummation of the Transactions, in each case, in accordance with the limited partnership agreements of the Operating Partnerships (the “Operating Partnership LPAs”), and any applicable award agreement (but excluding (x) any units of the Operating Partnerships that are owned directly by Rithm, the LP Merger Subs or any of their subsidiaries or held in treasury of the Operating Partnerships, (y) Unvested Units (as defined below) and (z) Rollover Interests (as defined below)) will be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the applicable per-unit amount that a holder of such unit of the Operating Partnership (an “Operating Partnership Unit”) is entitled to receive in a liquidity event pursuant to the terms of each of the Operating Partnership LPAs (where the aggregate amount payable by the Operating Partnerships is $167,367,690 (inclusive of the aggregate value of the Rollover Interests)), payable to the holder thereof, without interest (the “LP Merger Consideration”), which equates to approximately $6.90 for each LP Class A Unit and each LP Class A-1 Unit and $0 for each LP Class E Unit, LP Class P Unit and LP Class P-4 Unit.

At the LP Mergers Effective Time, (i) each Operating Partnership Unit held by a Sculptor service provider that is unvested at the LP Mergers Effective Time and that does not vest as a result of the consummation of the Transactions (the “Unvested Units”), (ii) each LP profit sharing interest and (iii) each Class C non-equity interest of the Operating Partnerships, in each case of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), will cease to exist and no payment will be made in respect thereof. Additionally, at the LP Mergers Effective Time, (a) each Class B common unit of the Operating Partnerships (the “LP Class B Units”) that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time will continue to remain outstanding as LP Class B Units of the applicable Surviving Limited Partnership following the LP Mergers Effective Time, (b) each general partner interest of Sculptor Capital Holding Corporation, a Delaware corporation and subsidiary of Sculptor (the “General Partner”), as general partner of each Operating Partnership outstanding immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time will remain outstanding following the LP Mergers Effective Time and the General Partner will continue as the general partner of each Operating Partnership, (c) each Rollover Interest held by each of the Rollover Holders (as defined below) that are outstanding immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time will be contributed to the applicable HoldCo (as defined below) and will continue to remain outstanding following the LP Mergers Effective Time and (d) each issued and outstanding limited partner interest of Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II and Merger Sub III issued and outstanding immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time will be converted into one (1) Class A common unit of the applicable Surviving Limited Partnership and the holder of such limited partner interest of Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II and Merger Sub III will be admitted as a limited partner of the applicable Surviving Limited Partnership.

Treatment of Sculptor Stock Awards

At the Effective Time (i) each outstanding award of performance-based restricted shares of Sculptor Common Stock or performance-based restricted stock units in respect of shares of Sculptor Common Stock granted pursuant to Sculptor’s equity incentive plans (each, a “Sculptor Performance Award”) that is vested or that vests at the Effective

 


Time pursuant to its terms will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Public Merger Consideration with respect to each share of Sculptor Common Stock underlying such Sculptor Performance Award, less any applicable withholding taxes and each other Sculptor Performance Award that remains outstanding as of the Effective Time, and any Sculptor Performance Award that immediately prior to the Effective Time is permitted to be or is automatically cancelled pursuant to its terms, will be cancelled at the Effective Time without any consideration therefor; (ii) each outstanding award of service-based restricted stock units in respect of shares of Sculptor Common Stock (including any such award to be settled in cash) granted pursuant to Sculptor’s equity incentive plans (each, a “Sculptor RSU Award”) that is vested or that vests at the Effective Time pursuant to its terms will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Public Merger Consideration with respect to each share of Sculptor Common Stock underlying such Sculptor RSU Award, less any applicable withholding taxes; (iii) each outstanding award of service-based restricted shares of Sculptor Common Stock granted pursuant to Sculptor’s equity incentive plans (each, a “Sculptor Restricted Stock Award”) that is vested or that vests as of the Effective Time pursuant to its terms will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Public Merger Consideration, less any applicable withholding taxes; and (iv) each Sculptor RSU Award or Sculptor Restricted Stock Award that remains outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time that is unvested will automatically be cancelled and converted into a restricted cash award (a “Converted Stock Award”) which will have a cash value equal to the product of (x) the aggregate number of shares of Sculptor Common Stock underlying such unvested Sculptor RSU Award or Sculptor Restricted Stock Award, as applicable, immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by (y) the Public Merger Consideration. Each Converted Stock Award will be subject to substantially the same terms and conditions as applied to the corresponding Sculptor RSU Award or Sculptor Restricted Stock Award, as applicable, immediately prior to the Effective Time and will be paid (less applicable withholding taxes) promptly upon vesting.

Rollover

Holders of LP Class A Units and LP Class A-1 Units are expected to be offered the opportunity to enter into a rollover agreement (the “Rollover Agreement”) with Rithm, Calder Holdco I, LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Rithm (“Holdco I”), Calder Holdco II, LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Rithm (“Holdco II”), and Calder Holdco III, LP, a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Rithm (collectively with Holdco I and Holdco II, the “Holdcos”). Holders of such Operating Partnership units that elect to enter into the Rollover Agreement (“Rollover Holders”) will agree, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Rollover Agreement, immediately prior to the Closing, to contribute certain of their equity interests in the Operating Partnerships (the “Rollover Interests”) to the Holdcos in exchange for a number of equity interests in each of the Holdcos (with one such interest in each Holdco collectively referred to as a “Holdco Preferred Interest”) having an aggregate value equal to the contributed value of the Rollover Interests (the “Rollover”). The closing of the Rollover will be conditioned upon the holders of at least 50% of the issued and outstanding LP Class A Units and LP Class A-1 Units entering into the Rollover Agreement prior to the date of the Company Stockholder Meeting (the “Rollover Condition”). The terms of the Rollover will be disclosed in the Company’s proxy statement on Schedule 14A in respect of the Transactions. Holders of LP Class A Units and LP Class A-1 Units that do not enter into the Rollover Agreement, or in the event that the Rollover Condition is not satisfied and the Rollover does not occur, all holders of LP Class A Units and LP Class A-1 Units, will receive the consideration described above under “ —Effect of LP Mergers on Operating Partnership Units” at the LP Mergers Effective Time.

Post-Closing Governance

On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, (i) as of the Effective Time, the directors and officers of Merger Sub Inc. immediately prior to the Effective Time will become the directors and officers of the Surviving Corporation and (ii) as of the LP Mergers Effective Time, (A) the General Partner will continue as the general partner of each Surviving Limited Partnership, Rithm (or a direct or indirect subsidiary of Rithm) will be admitted as a limited partner of each Surviving Limited Partnership and each Surviving Limited Partnership will be continued without dissolution, and (B) the officers of the General Partner of each Operating Partnership immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time will be the officers of the General Partner of each Surviving Limited Partnership.

 


Representations, Warranties and Covenants

The Merger Agreement contains certain customary representations and warranties made by each party, which, in the case of Sculptor and the Operating Partnerships, are qualified by the confidential disclosures provided to Rithm in connection with the Merger Agreement, as well as matters included in Sculptor’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) prior to the date of the Merger Agreement. Rithm, Sculptor and the Operating Partnerships have agreed to various customary covenants, including covenants regarding the conduct of Sculptor’s business prior to the Closing, covenants requiring Sculptor to recommend that its stockholders approve the Merger Agreement and covenants prohibiting Sculptor from soliciting alternative acquisition proposals or providing information to or engaging in discussions with third parties, in each case, except in limited circumstances as provided in the Merger Agreement.

Rithm has agreed to a covenant requiring it to establish, effective as of the Closing, (i) a retention program for certain members of Sculptor’s leadership team and (ii) a long-term incentive program (“LTIP”) for certain members of Sculptor’s leadership team who support the Sculptor business following the Closing. The retention program will have a total value of up to $35 million and will be allocated to certain members of Sculptor’s leadership team in the form of Rithm restricted stock or restricted stock units, which will vest in two equal installments on the second and third anniversaries of the Closing. The LTIP will provide for awards from a pool of 20%, subject to escalation based on achievement of certain performance thresholds, in the growth in the value of the Sculptor business above Rithm’s basis in such business, measured over a period of five years (or less, upon certain circumstances), subject to achieving an 8% internal rate of return hurdle on Rithm’s investment in the Sculptor business. At least 55% of the pool under the LTIP will be allocated to Sculptor employees. Awards under the LTIP will generally be subject to continued performance of services and will vest in three installments on the third, fourth and fifth anniversaries of the Closing.

Conditions to the Mergers

Consummation of the Transactions is subject to certain customary conditions, including (i) approval of the Transactions by the requisite vote of Sculptor’s stockholders (the “Company Stockholder Approval”) and approval of the Transactions by the affirmative vote of the holders representing at least a majority of the aggregate voting power of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock owned by the Non-Unitholder Stockholders and that are entitled to vote thereon (the “Company Non-Unitholder Stockholder Approval” and together with the Company Stockholder Approval, the “Required Stockholder Approval”), (ii) approval of the LP Mergers by the General Partner of each of the Operating Partnerships, (iii) the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, the approval of the Financial Conduct Authority in the United Kingdom and the approval of the Securities and Futures Commission in Hong Kong, (iv) the absence of a Company Material Adverse Effect on Sculptor, (v) the accuracy of each party’s representations and warranties (subject to customary materiality qualifiers), (vi) each party’s compliance with its covenants and agreements contained in the Merger Agreement in all material respects and (vii) the receipt of consent of investment funds or other vehicles managed by Sculptor and its subsidiaries representing at least 85% of such parties’ run rate revenue to the “assignment” (as defined in the Investment Advisers Act of 1940) of their client contracts.

Termination Rights and Fee

The Merger Agreement may be terminated by either party under certain circumstances, including (i) if the Closing has not occurred on or before July 23, 2024; (ii) if a court or other governmental entity has issued a final and non-appealable order prohibiting the Closing; (iii) if Sculptor fails to obtain the Required Stockholder Approval; or (iv) upon a material uncured breach by the other party that would result in a failure of the conditions to the Closing to be satisfied. In addition, prior to obtaining the Required Stockholder Approval, (a) Sculptor may terminate the Merger Agreement, subject to the payment of a termination fee, in order to enter into an agreement for a superior proposal and (b) Rithm may terminate the Merger Agreement if the Board makes an adverse recommendation change.

termination Sculptor enters into a definitive agreement with respect to an acquisition proposal and that acquisition proposal is subsequently consummated. Sculptor is also required to reimburse Rithm’s costs and expenses in connection with the negotiation, execution and performance of the Transactions, subject to a cap of $5,100,560 (“Rithm Expenses”), if the Merger Agreement is terminated by Sculptor or terminated by Rithm if the Sculptor stockholder meeting has been held and the Merger Agreement has not been adopted by the Required Stockholder Approval.

If any action the subject matter of which is within the scope of clause (a) of the immediately preceding sentence is filed in a court other than the courts in the State of Delaware (a “Foreign Action”) in the name of any stockholder, such stockholder shall be deemed to have consented to (x) the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in the State of Delaware in connection with any action brought in any such court to enforce the provisions of clause (a) of the immediately preceding sentence and (y) having service of process made upon such stockholder in any such action by service upon such stockholder’s counsel in the Foreign Action as agent for such stockholder.

The date on which the Closing actually occurs is referred to in this Agreement as the “Closing Date.”

Section 2.02 The Mergers.

(ii) The Public Merger shall have the effects set forth in this Agreement, the Certificate of Merger and the applicable provisions of the DGCL. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, from and after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall possess all property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of the Company and Merger Sub Inc., and all of the obligations, liabilities and duties of the Company and Merger Sub Inc. shall become the obligations, liabilities and duties of the Surviving Corporation.

(i) Substantially contemporaneously with the Closing, the parties shall cause the LP Mergers to be consummated by causing to be filed with the Delaware Secretary of State (A) the certificates of merger in the forms attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “LP Certificates of Merger”) and executed in accordance with the relevant provisions of the DLPA, and (B) all other filings or recordings required under the DLPA in order to consummate the LP Mergers. The LP Mergers shall become effective at the time the applicable LP Certificates of Merger have been filed with the Delaware Secretary of State or at such later effective time and date that is agreed to by the Company and Parent and specified in the LP Certificates of Merger (the “LP Mergers Effective Time”).

(iii) At the LP Mergers Effective Time, (A) the certificate of limited partnership of each Operating Partnership in effect immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time (as amended by the applicable merger certificate) shall be the certificate of limited partnership of the applicable Surviving Limited Partnership, and (B) the limited partnership agreement of each Operating Partnership in effect immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time shall be the limited partnership agreement of the applicable Surviving Limited Partnership, in each case, until thereafter amended in accordance with the DLPA and as provided in such limited partnership agreement.

(iv) From and after the LP Mergers Effective Time, (A) the General Partner shall continue as the general partner of each Surviving Limited Partnership, Parent (or a direct or indirect wholly owned Subsidiary of Parent) shall be admitted as a limited partner of each Surviving Limited Partnership and each Surviving Limited Partnership shall be continued without dissolution, and (B) the officers of the General Partner of each Operating Partnership immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time shall be the officers of the General Partner of the Surviving Limited Partnership surviving the LP Merger to which such Operating Partnership is a constituent, each to hold office in accordance with the limited partnership agreement of such Surviving Limited Partnership until their death, resignation or removal or until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified in accordance with the limited partnership agreement of such Surviving Limited Partnership, as the case may be.

27


holder thereof, without interest, in accordance with Section 3.03(or in the case of a lost, stolen or destroyed Certificate, in accordance with Section 3.04).

(b) Cancellation of Company Class B Common Stock. All shares of Company Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be cancelled and retired without any conversion thereof and shall cease to exist and no payment shall be made in respect thereof.

All shares of Company Common Stock that are owned directly by Parent, Merger Sub Inc. or any of their Subsidiaries immediately prior to the Effective Time or held in treasury of the Company (the “Cancelled Shares”) shall be cancelled and retired without any conversion thereof and shall cease to exist and no payment shall be made in respect thereof.

(d) Conversion of Merger Sub Inc. Common Stock. Each issued and outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Merger Sub Inc. issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into and become one (1) fully paid and non-assessable share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Surviving Corporation.

(e) Treatment of Company Warrants. Each Company Warrant issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall survive the Public Merger and remain outstanding, but shall, upon any subsequent exercise of such Company Warrant (by delivery to the Surviving Corporation of the exercise notice and exercise price pursuant to the terms of such Company Warrant), be entitled to receive only the Warrant Consideration for each share of Company Common Stock for which such Company Warrant was exercisable immediately prior to the Closing; provided that the holder of any Company Warrant may notify the Company (or, after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation) in accordance with the terms of such Company Warrant before the 30th day after a Change of Control (as defined in each Company Warrant) that such holder is exercising the holder’s right to cause the Company to purchase such Company Warrant from such holder for the Black-Scholes Value of the remaining unexercised portion of such Company Warrant in accordance with its terms; provided, further, that in no event may any holder of Company Warrants receive both the Warrant Consideration and the Black-Scholes Value in exchange for such Company Warrant.

 

28


(f) Adjustments. Without limiting the other provisions of this Agreement, if any change in the outstanding shares of Company Capital Stock has occurred, is occurring or shall occur by reason of any reclassification, recapitalization, stock split (including a reverse stock split) or combination, exchange or readjustment of shares (including as a result of any Operating Partnership Units being exchanged into shares of Company Class A Common Stock), or any stock dividend or stock distribution thereon or unit dividend or unit distribution on the Operating Partnership Units (including any dividend or distribution of securities convertible into Company Capital Stock or Operating Partnership Units, as appropriate) with a record date during the period between the date of this Agreement and the Effective Time, the Public Merger Consideration shall be equitably adjusted to provide the same economic effect as contemplated by this Agreement. Nothing in this Section 3.01(f) shall be construed to permit any action that is otherwise prohibited or restricted by any other provision of this Agreement (including, for the avoidance of doubt, Section 6.01).

Section 3.02 Effect of LP Mergers on Operating Partnership Units.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the sole remedy in connection with a failure by a holder of an Operating Partnership Unit as of immediately prior to the LP Mergers Effective Time to deliver such Withholding Certificates or by the applicable Operating Partnership to deliver the affidavit described in the immediately preceding sentence shall be for Parent to withhold payment in accordance with this Section 3.05 with respect to the portion of the LP Merger Consideration payable to the relevant former holder of Operating Partnership Units.

provided, however, that (i) if any holder or Beneficial Owner of Dissenting Shares, under the circumstances permitted by and in accordance with the DGCL, affirmatively and effectively withdraws or loses (through failure to perfect or otherwise) the right to dissent or its right for appraisal of such Dissenting Shares, (ii) if any holder or Beneficial Owner of Dissenting Shares fails to establish his, her or its entitlement to appraisal rights as provided in the DGCL or (iii) if a court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that such holder or Beneficial Owner is not entitled to the relief provided by Section 262 of the DGCL, such holder(s) or Beneficial Owner(s) (as the case may be) shall forfeit the right to appraisal of such shares of Company Class A Common Stock and such shares of Company Class A Common Stock shall thereupon cease to constitute Dissenting Shares, and each such share of Company Class A Common Stock shall, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, thereafter be deemed to have been converted into and to have become, as of the Effective Time, the right to receive, without interest thereon, the Public Merger Consideration.

(b) The Company shall give Parent (i) prompt notice of all demands for appraisal received by the Company, withdrawals of such demands, and any other instruments served pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL received by the Company in connection with the Mergers and (ii) the reasonable opportunity to participate in all Proceedings with respect to demands for appraisal under Applicable Law of Delaware in respect of Dissenting Shares.

80


(e) Permissible Adverse Recommendation Change and Entry into Alternative Acquisition Agreement in Connection with a Superior Proposal. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, at any time prior to obtaining the Required Company Stockholder Approval, in the event that the Company has received a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal that did not result from a material breach of Section 6.02, the Special Committee and the Company Board, acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee, may effect an Adverse Recommendation Change with respect to such Acquisition Proposal or cause the Company to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(h) to enter into an Alternative Acquisition Agreement with respect to such Acquisition Proposal, if and only if:

(i) the Company Board (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) determines in good faith (after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors) that such Acquisition Proposal is a Superior Proposal;

(iii) the Company has provided, at least three (3) Business Days in advance (the “Notice Period”), written notice (a “Notice of Adverse Recommendation Change”) to Parent to the effect that (A) the Company, the Company Board or the Special Committee has received a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal that has not been withdrawn; (B) the Company Board has (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) concluded in good faith (after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors) that such Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Superior Proposal; (C) the Company Board has (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) determined in good faith (after consultation with its financial and outside legal advisors) that the failure to effect an Adverse Recommendation Change with respect to such Superior Proposal or cause the Company to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(h) to enter into an Alternative Acquisition Agreement with respect to such Superior Proposal would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duty under Applicable Law; and (D) the Company Board has (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) resolved to effect an Adverse Recommendation Change or to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(h), which notice shall describe the basis for such Adverse Recommendation Change or termination, including the identity of the Person or Group making such Acquisition Proposal, and the material terms of such Acquisition Proposal and shall include copies of all relevant documents relating to such Acquisition Proposal (it being understood that such delivery of a Notice of Adverse Recommendation Change and any amendment or update thereto (in each case, privately to Parent), the determination to so deliver such notice, amendment or update and the Special Committee’s making of any non-public recommendation to the Company Board with respect thereto will not, by itself, constitute an Adverse Recommendation Change); and

(iv) prior to effecting such Adverse Recommendation Change or termination the Company and its Representatives, until 11:59 P.M. (Eastern time) on the last day of the Notice Period, shall have negotiated with Parent and its Representatives in good faith (to the extent Parent desires to negotiate) to make such adjustments to the terms and conditions of this Agreement so that such Superior Proposal would cease to constitute a Superior

Proposal; it being understood that (x) in the event of any material revision, amendment, update or supplement to such Acquisition Proposal, the Company will be required to deliver a new written notice to Parent and to comply with the requirements of Section 6.02(e)(iii) and (iv) with respect to such new written notice (with the “Notice Period” in respect of such new written notice being three (3) Business Days from the delivery of such written notice to Parent) and (y) at the end of the Notice Period, the Company Board (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) must have in good faith (after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors and taking into account Parent’s proposed revisions to the terms and conditions of this Agreement) reaffirmed its determination described in Section 6.02(e)(i) and Section 6.02(e)(ii).

(f) Permissible Adverse Recommendation Change in Connection with an Intervening Event. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, at any time prior to obtaining the Required Company Stockholder Approval, other than in connection with a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal, the Special Committee and the Company Board, acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee, may effect an Adverse Recommendation Change in response to an Intervening Event, if and only if:

(i) the Company Board (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) has determined in good faith (after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors), that the failure to effect an Adverse Recommendation Change would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under Applicable Law;

(ii) the Company has provided, at least three (3) Business Days (the “Intervening Event Notice Period”) prior written notice (a “Notice of Intervening Event”) to Parent that the Company intends to take such action (it being understood that such delivery of a Notice of Intervening Event and any amendment or update thereto (in each case, privately to Parent) and the determination to so deliver such notice, amendment or update will not, by itself, constitute an Adverse Recommendation Change), which notice shall include reasonably detailed information describing the Intervening Event and the basis for effecting such Adverse Recommendation Change; and

(iii) prior to effecting such Adverse Recommendation Change, the Company and its Representatives, until 11:59 P.M. (Eastern time) on the last day of the Intervening Event Notice Period, shall have (A) negotiated with Parent and its Representatives in good faith (to the extent Parent desires to negotiate) to make such adjustments to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in response to such Intervening Event so that the Company Board (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee and after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors and taking into account Parent’s proposed revisions to the terms and conditions of this Agreement) no longer determines in good faith that the failure to effect an Adverse Recommendation Change would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under Applicable Law; and (B) following such Intervening Event Notice Period, the Company Board (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee and after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors and taking into account Parent’s proposed revisions to the terms and conditions of this Agreement) has determined that the failure of the Company Board to effect an

 

82


Adverse Recommendation Change would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under Applicable Law; it being understood that each time that material modifications or developments with respect to the Intervening Event occur (as reasonably determined by the Special Committee in good faith), the Company will be required to deliver a new written notice to Parent and to comply with the requirements of Section 6.02(f)(ii) with respect to such new written notice (with the “Intervening Event Notice Period” in respect of such new written notice being two (2) Business Days from the delivery of such written notice to Parent).

The Company shall ensure that any withdrawal or modification of the Company Board Recommendation that is not accompanied by a termination of this Agreement: (x) does not alter the Company’s obligation to call, give notice of and hold the Company Stockholder Meeting in accordance with Section 6.04(a); and (y) does not have the effect of causing any corporate takeover statute or other similar statute (including any “moratorium”, “control share acquisition”, “business combination” or “fair price” statute) of the State of Delaware or any other state to be applicable to this Agreement, any of the Support Agreements, the Rollover Agreement, the Mergers or any of the other Transactions.

(g) Notice to Parent of Acquisition Proposals. From and after the date of this Agreement until the Effective Time or the date, if any, on which this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Article VIII, (i) as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in any event within forty-eight (48) hours from the receipt thereof) after receipt of any Acquisition Proposal or any request for non-public information or inquiry (including seeking to initiate or continue any discussion or negotiation) that could reasonably be expected to lead to an Acquisition Proposal, the Company shall provide Parent with written notice, which notice must include (A) the identity of the Person or Group making such proposal, request or inquiry (unless such disclosure is prohibited pursuant to the terms of any confidentiality agreement with such Person or Group that is in effect on the date of this Agreement); (B) the material terms and conditions of such Acquisition Proposal, request or inquiry, and if in writing, an unredacted copy thereof (and, where no copy is available, a reasonably detailed written description thereof); and (C) copies of any material agreements, documents or other written materials submitted in connection therewith (unless such disclosure is prohibited pursuant to the terms of any confidentiality agreement with such Person or Group that is in effect on the date of this Agreement, and, where no copies are available or such disclosure is prohibited, a reasonably detailed written description thereof), and (ii) thereafter, the Company shall keep Parent reasonably informed, on a prompt basis (and in any event through notifying Parent in writing within forty-eight (48) hours of any material development with regard to or material amendment of such proposal, request or inquiry), of the status and terms of any such proposal (including any amendments thereto) and the status of any such discussions or negotiations, including providing unredacted copies of any new or amended material agreements, documents or other written materials submitted in connection therewith (unless such disclosure is prohibited pursuant to the terms of any confidentiality agreement with such Person or Group that is in effect on the date of this Agreement, and, where no copies are available or disclosure is prohibited, a reasonably detailed written description thereof). From and after the date of this Agreement until the Effective Time or the date, if any, on which this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Article VIII, the Company will promptly (and in any event within forty-eight (48) hours) make available to Parent any non-public information concerning any Acquired Company that is provided to any such Person or Group or its Representatives that was not previously made available to Parent or its Representatives.

 

83


(h) Permitted Disclosures by the Company. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prohibit the Company, the Company Board or the Special Committee, directly or indirectly through its Representatives, from (i) taking and disclosing to the Company Stockholders a position with respect to a tender or exchange offer by a Third Party pursuant to Rule 14d-9 or Rule 14e-2 promulgated under the Exchange Act, (ii) making any “stop, look and listen” communication to the Company Stockholders pursuant to Rule 14d-9(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act or a factually accurate public statement by the Company that describes the Company’s receipt of an Acquisition Proposal and the operation of this Agreement with respect thereto, or (iii) any other communication to the Company Stockholders if (in the case of this clause (iii)) the Special Committee has determined in good faith, after consultation with its outside financial and outside legal advisors, that such communication is required under Applicable Law; it being understood that (A) any such communication or disclosure made by the Company, the Company Board or the Special Committee must be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and shall not limit or otherwise adversely affect the obligations of the Company, the Company Board or the Special Committee and the rights of Parent under this Section 6.02 and (B) nothing in the foregoing shall be deemed to permit the Company, the Company Board or the Special Committee to effect an Adverse Recommendation Change other than in accordance with Section 6.02(e); provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, the permitted disclosures pursuant to clause (i) and clause (ii) of the foregoing shall not be deemed to constitute an Adverse Recommendation Change.

(i) Breach of Non-Solicitation Obligations by Representatives of the Company. The Company acknowledges and agrees that any action that if taken by the Company would constitute a breach of any provision set forth in this Section 6.02 is taken by any Representative of any of the Acquired Companies, whether or not such Representative is purporting to act on behalf of any of the Acquired Companies (but provided that, with respect to Representatives of the Acquired Companies who are attorneys, accountants, consultants and financial advisors, such Person has been engaged by the Acquired Companies in connection with the Transactions or are otherwise acting on behalf of the Acquired Companies), shall be deemed to constitute a breach of such provision by the Company.

Section 6.03 Governmental Consents and Filings.

(a) During the period from the date hereof and continuing through the earlier of the Closing Date or the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Article VIII, upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement and subject to Applicable Law, the parties shall use their respective reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all appropriate action and do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable under Applicable Law, including Antitrust Law and any Required Irish FDI Filing, or otherwise to consummate and make effective the Transactions as promptly as practicable (and in any event before the End Date) and to cooperate with the other parties in connection with the foregoing, including using reasonable best efforts to obtain all consents, licenses, permits, waivers, approvals, authorizations or orders that are required to be obtained by the parties or any of their respective Affiliates in connection with the consummation of the Transactions from any Governmental Authorities (including the FCA Approval and any Required Irish FDI Filing) (including those consents and approvals set forth in Section 6.03(a) of the Company Disclosure Letter) or other

 

84


third parties, and to effect as promptly as practicable all necessary registrations, filings and responses to requests for additional information or documentary material from any Governmental Authorities, if any, in each case subject to the other provisions of this Section 6.03, or to avoid any Proceeding (including those in connection with the Antitrust Laws) in connection with the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the Transactions. Without limitation of the foregoing, the parties shall, and shall cause their respective controlled Affiliates to, cooperate with each other and use their reasonable best efforts to as promptly as practicable and in no event later than twenty (20) Business Days after the date hereof prepare and file, or cause to be prepared and filed (including by causing a party’s relevant controlled Affiliates by which a filing is required to be made to a Governmental Authority to make such filing), all necessary documentation to effect all applications, notices, petitions and filings with, and to obtain as promptly as practicable after the date hereof all permits, consents, approvals, waivers and authorizations of, all Governmental Authorities that are necessary or advisable to timely consummate the Transactions, including, for the avoidance of doubt, the filings and applications related to (i) the FCA Approval, (ii) the clearances, approvals and consents set forth in Section 7.01(b) of the Company Disclosure Letter, and (iii) any Required Irish FDI Filing, except, as it pertains to any Required Irish FDI Filing, such filing shall be prepared and filed no later than fifteen (15) Business Days after the date upon which Parent communicates to the Company that Parent has reasonably determined that such filing is required. Each Party (the “Reviewing Party”) or its outside counsel shall have the right to review in advance, and the other party (the “Filing Party”) shall consult with the Reviewing Party or its outside counsel on, all the information relating to the Reviewing Party and its Affiliates that appears in any filing or written materials submitted by the Filing Party to any Governmental Authority in connection with the Transactions and shall furnish to the other parties all information required for any such filings or written materials; provided, however, that (i) copies of the filings made under the HSR Act need not be shared, and (ii) that the parties may, as each deems reasonably necessary, designate any competitively sensitive material provided to the other party under this Section 6.03(a) as “outside counsel only” and materials provided to the other party or its outside counsel may be redacted to remove references concerning the valuation of the Acquired Companies. The parties agree that they shall keep the other parties apprised in a timely manner of the status of matters relating to completion of the Transactions.

(b) As promptly as reasonably practicable, and in any event within ten (10) Business Days after the date hereof, the parties shall make all necessary filings, and thereafter make an appropriate response to any requests for submission of additional documents and information, with respect to this Agreement required under the HSR Act. Without limiting the generality of anything contained in this Section 6.03, each party hereto shall: (i) give the other parties prompt notice of the making or commencement of any Proceeding with respect to the Transactions; (ii) keep the other parties informed as to the status of any such Proceeding; (iii) provide the other parties with (A) advance copies of all material correspondence, filings or communications (or memoranda setting forth the substance thereof) from such party or any of its controlled Affiliates to any Governmental Authority in connection with the Transactions and (B) all material correspondence, filings or communications (or memoranda setting forth the substance thereof) from any

 

85


Governmental Authority in connection with the Transactions as promptly as practicable following its receipt thereof; (iv) respond as promptly as practicable to any additional requests for information received from any Antitrust Authority or any other Governmental Authority with respect to the Transactions or filings contemplated by Section 6.03(a); (v) not agree to participate in any substantive meeting or communication with any Governmental Authority in respect of any filing or any investigation or inquiry related to the Transactions unless it consults with the other parties in advance and provides the other party the opportunity to attend and participate thereat; and (vi) use reasonable best efforts to (A) obtain termination or expiration of the waiting period (including any extensions thereof) under the HSR Act and such other approvals, consents and clearances as may be necessary, proper or advisable under any Applicable Laws, including any other applicable Antitrust Laws and (B) prevent the entry in any Proceeding brought by a Governmental Authority or any other Person of any Governmental Order which would prohibit, make unlawful or delay the consummation of the Transactions (provided that any such reasonable best efforts shall be subject to Section 6.03(d)). Each party shall consult and cooperate with the other parties and shall consider in good faith the views of the other parties in connection with any filing, analysis, appearance, presentation, memorandum, brief, argument, opinion or proposal made or submitted in connection with the Transactions, and except as may be prohibited by any Governmental Authority or by Applicable Law, in connection with any such Proceeding, each party shall invite Representatives of the other parties to be present at each meeting or conference relating to such Proceeding and to have access to and be consulted in connection with any document, opinion or proposal made or submitted to any Governmental Authority in connection with such Proceeding; provided that the parties agree that Parent shall control the strategy and process, in consultation with the Company, in connection with any filings and notifications under Antitrust Laws or other Applicable Laws. Parent shall pay all filing fees in connection with any filings and notifications under Antitrust Laws.

(c) Without limitation to Section 6.03(a), the condition relating to the FCA in the UK (the “FCA Approval”) shall be satisfied by the first to occur of the following:

(i) the delivery to any party by the FCA of notice in writing in accordance with section 189(4)(a) of FSMA that it has determined to grant approval unconditionally to Parent and each other person required to give notice under s178 of FSMA in connection with the acquisition (as defined in s191G FSMA) of control of the UK-Regulated Entities in accordance with this Agreement (each an “Additional Notice Giver”);

(ii) if the FCA has given notice in writing in accordance with section 189(4)(b)(i) of FSMA that it has determined to approve the acquisition subject to fulfilment of certain conditions:

(A) where such conditions are capable of being satisfied by the parties without final recourse to the FCA, upon the fulfilment of those conditions (as may be varied or cancelled) to the satisfaction of the FCA or the parties (acting reasonably);

(B) where such conditions are ongoing in nature, upon the FCA or the parties having agreed in writing that, in their reasonable opinion, such conditions (as may be varied or cancelled) will continue to be fulfilled; or

 

86


(C) where such conditions are stated in the written notice to require the FCA’s confirmation of being satisfied, upon receipt by either party of confirmation from the FCA that the conditions (as may be varied or cancelled) have been satisfied; or

(iii) the assessment period (as defined in section 189(1) of FSMA) having elapsed without the FCA having given, in relation to each of the UK-Regulated Entities, notice under section 189(4)(a) of FSMA or a notification under section 189(4)(b) of FSMA or a notification under section 189(6)(b) of FSMA that the application for consent is incomplete, so that the FCA may be treated under section 189(6) of FSMA as having approved the acquisition of control by Parent and any Additional Notice Giver of the UK-Regulated Entities.

(d) In connection with obtaining any approval or consent related to any Applicable Law, the parties shall (and shall cause their respective controlled Affiliates to) (i) cooperate in good faith with the Governmental Authorities and (ii) shall undertake (and cause their respective controlled Affiliates to undertake) promptly any and all action to complete lawfully the Transactions as soon as practicable (but in any event prior to the End Date) and any and all action necessary or advisable to avoid, prevent, eliminate or remove the actual or threatened commencement of any Proceeding in any forum by or on behalf of any Governmental Authority or the issuance of any Governmental Order that would (or to obtain the agreement or consent of any Governmental Authority to the Transactions the absence of which would) delay, enjoin, prevent, restrain or otherwise prohibit the consummation of the Public Merger or the LP Mergers, including (A) to promptly resolve any objections that may be asserted by any Governmental Authority and (B) to satisfy any reasonable conditions or requirements imposed on it by any Governmental Authority in connection with the consummation of the Transactions, including under the HSR Act and any other Antitrust Laws; provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted to require (1) Parent or any of its Affiliates to divest or hold separate, or agree to divest or hold separate, any of its or the Acquired Companies’ assets, businesses or operations, or to agree to any injunction, order or other restriction on, or to take any other action with respect to, its or the Acquired Companies’ assets, businesses or operations (collectively, each a “Remedial Action”), or to defend any litigation, in order to secure any Governmental Authority’s approval, clearance or non-action with respect to the consummation of the Transactions, unless such Remedial Action is conditioned upon the Closing and the taking of such Remedial Action would not reasonably be expected to result, individually or in the aggregate, in a material and adverse effect on the Acquired Companies, taken as a whole, or on Parent and its Affiliates, taken as a whole or (2) Parent, the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries to pay any fee or settlement amount in connection with preventing the entry of any Governmental Order (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, the payment of any filing fees required to be paid in connection with seeking such Governmental Approval or any payments to Representatives of for services rendered in connection therewith).

(e) This Section 6.03 shall not apply to the obtaining of Client Consents, which shall be governed exclusively by Section 6.12.

Section 6.04 Proxy Statement.

(a) As promptly as reasonably practicable following the date of this Agreement (but in any event no earlier than thirty (30) days after the date of this Agreement), the Company shall prepare and file with the SEC a proxy statement in preliminary form, as required by the Exchange Act, relating to the Company Stockholder Meeting (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the “Proxy Statement”). Unless an Adverse Recommendation Change has been made in accordance with Section 6.02, the Company shall include the Special Committee Recommendation and the Company Board Recommendation in any iteration of the Proxy Statement filed in preliminary or definitive form. Parent shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable, furnish to the Company all information concerning Parent and the Merger Subs required by the Exchange Act to be set forth in the Proxy Statement upon request by the Company, and will, upon request of the Company, confirm and/or supplement the information relating to Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II or Merger Sub III supplied by it for inclusion in the Proxy Statement. The Company shall promptly notify Parent upon the receipt of any comments from the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) or any request from the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) for amendments or supplements to the Proxy Statement and shall provide Parent with copies of all correspondence between the Company and its Representatives, on the one hand, and the SEC (or the staff of the SEC), on the other hand. If the Company receives comments from the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) on the preliminary Proxy Statement, (i) each of the parties shall use their reasonable best efforts to respond as promptly as reasonably practicable to any comments or any request from the SEC (or the staff of the SEC) with respect to the Proxy Statement, (ii) each of the Company and Parent shall use its reasonable best efforts to have the SEC advise the Company as promptly as reasonably practicable that the SEC has no further comments on the Proxy Statements and (iii) the Company shall file the Proxy Statement in definitive form with the SEC and cause the definitive Proxy Statement to be mailed to the Company Stockholders as of the record date for notice established for the Company Stockholder Meeting as promptly as reasonably practicable after the date of this Agreement, and in no event more than five (5) Business Days after the date on which the SEC confirms that it will not review, or that it has no further comments on the Proxy Statement, which confirmation shall be deemed to have occurred if the SEC has not affirmatively notified the Company by 11:59 P.M. (Eastern time) on the tenth (10th) calendar day following such filing with the SEC that the SEC will or will not be reviewing the Proxy Statement. No filing of, or amendment or supplement to, the Proxy Statement or any response to any comment from the SEC with respect thereto shall be made by the Company without the written approval of Parent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), and the Company shall provide Parent and its counsel a reasonable opportunity to review and comment thereon. In accordance with the Company’s organizational documents, the Company through the Company Board shall use its reasonable best efforts to, as promptly as reasonably practicable (but subject to the last sentence of this Section 6.04(a) and the timing contemplated in this Section 6.04(a)), (x) establish a record date for and give notice of a meeting of its stockholders, for the purpose of voting upon the adoption of this Agreement (including any adjournment or postponement thereof, the “Company Stockholder Meeting”) and (y) mail to the holders of Company Common Stock as of the record date for notice established for the Company Stockholder Meeting a Proxy Statement. The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to duly call, convene and hold the Company Stockholder Meeting as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in any event within thirty five (35) days following the date of first mailing of the Proxy Statement to the Company Stockholders); provided, however, that the Company (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) may postpone, recess or adjourn the Company Stockholder Meeting: (i) with the written consent

 

88


of Parent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), (ii) if as of the time for which the Company Stockholder Meeting is scheduled, there are insufficient shares of Company Common Stock represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct business at such Company Stockholder Meeting, (iii) if as of the time for which the Company Stockholder Meeting is scheduled, there are insufficient shares of Company Common Stock with respect to which proxies have been submitted to vote in favor of the adoption of this Agreement to obtain the Required Company Stockholder Approval or (iv) if reasonable additional time is necessary for the filing and distribution of any supplemental or amended disclosure which the Special Committee or the Company Board, acting upon direction from the Special Committee, has determined in good faith (after consultation with its outside legal counsel) is necessary under Applicable Laws for such supplemental or amended disclosure to be disseminated to and reviewed by the Company Stockholders prior to the Company Stockholder Meeting; provided, that, in the case of clauses (ii), (iii) and (iv), without the written consent of Parent, in no event shall the Company Stockholder Meeting be held on a date later than the earlier of (x) thirty (30) days after the date for which the Company Stockholder Meeting was originally scheduled (in the case of clause (iv) excluding any postponements or adjournments required by applicable Law) and (y) three (3) Business Days before the End Date. Unless the Special Committee or the Company Board, acting upon direction from the Special Committee, shall have effected an Adverse Recommendation Change pursuant to Section 6.02(e), the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to solicit proxies from the Company Stockholders and obtain the Required Company Stockholder Approval. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Company shall not be required to hold the Company Stockholder Meeting if this Agreement has been terminated in accordance with Article VIII. Without the prior written consent of Parent or as otherwise required by applicable Law, the Company shall not hold or convene its 2024 annual meeting of stockholders or any other meeting of stockholders other than the Company Stockholder Meeting.

(b) If the Company determines that it is required to file any document other than the Proxy Statement with the SEC in connection with the Mergers or other Transactions pursuant to Applicable Law (such document, as amended or supplemented, an “Other Required Company Filing”), then the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to promptly prepare and file such Other Required Company Filing to comply in all material respects with the applicable requirements of the Exchange Act and other Applicable Law. Except in connection with an Adverse Recommendation Change or thereafter, the Company shall not file any Other Required Company Filing with the SEC without the written approval of Parent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), and the Company shall provide Parent and its counsel a reasonable opportunity to review and comment thereon, and the Company shall give good faith consideration to all reasonable additions, deletions or changes suggested by Parent or its counsel.

(c) If at any time prior to the Effective Time any event, circumstance or information relating to the Company or Parent or any of the Company’s or Parent’s Subsidiaries, or their respective officers or directors, should be discovered by the Company or Parent, respectively, which, pursuant to the Exchange Act, should be set forth in an amendment or a supplement to the Proxy Statement so that the Proxy Statement would not include any misstatement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, the party that discovers such information shall promptly notify the other parties hereto and, subject to Section 6.04(b), an appropriate amendment or supplement describing such information shall be promptly filed with the SEC and, to the extent required by Applicable Law, disseminated to the Company Stockholders. Each party agrees to correct any information provided by it for use in the Proxy Statement which shall have become false or misleading.

 

89


Section 6.05 Access to Information. From the date of this Agreement until the earlier of the Effective Time and the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Article VIII, the Company shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, afford to Parent and its Representatives reasonable access, during normal business hours, in such manner as to not unreasonably interfere with the normal operation of the Acquired Companies, to their respective personnel, properties, Contracts, books and records, and shall furnish such Representatives with existing financial and operating data and other information concerning the affairs of the Acquired Companies as such Representatives may reasonably request in writing, in each case, for the purpose of consummating the Transactions contemplated hereby and integration planning related thereto; provided that such review shall only be upon reasonable written notice and shall be at Parent’s sole cost and expense; provided, further, that the Company will be permitted to redact any information or documentation provided to Parent or its Representatives to the extent that such information or documentation includes competitively sensitive information. Nothing herein shall require the Acquired Companies to disclose any information to Parent or its Representatives if such disclosure (i) would violate Applicable Law or any of its material obligations with respect to any material provisions of any Contract (including any confidentiality agreement or similar agreement or arrangement) to which any Acquired Company is a party or (ii) jeopardize any attorney-client or work-product privilege; provided that, to the extent possible, the parties shall cooperate in good faith to permit disclosure of such information in a manner that preserves such compliance with Applicable Law, such compliance with provisions of any such Contract or such privilege. All information obtained by Parent, the Merger Subs and their respective Representatives shall be subject to the Company Confidentiality Agreement. No investigation or access permitted pursuant to this Section 6.05 shall affect or be deemed to modify any representation or warranty made by the Company hereunder. Parent will use its reasonable best efforts to minimize any disruption to the respective business of the Acquired Companies that may result from requests for access under this Section 6.05 and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Company may satisfy its obligations set forth above by electronic means if physical access is not reasonably feasible or would not be permitted under Applicable Law as a result of COVID-19 or any COVID-19 Measures.

Section 6.06 Confidentiality; Public Announcements. Except as otherwise contemplated by Section 6.02(h) (and, for the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein shall limit the rights of the Company, the Company Board or the Special Committee under Section 6.02), the parties shall consult with each other before issuing any press release or public announcement with respect to this Agreement or the Transactions, including by providing each other with the opportunity to review and comment upon such press release or public announcement prior to its issuance, and none of the parties or their controlled Affiliates shall issue any such press release or public announcement prior to obtaining the other parties’ written consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), except that, after having consulted with the other parties in accordance with this Section 6.06, no such consent shall be necessary to the extent disclosure may be required by Applicable Law. The press release announcing the execution of this Agreement shall be issued only in such form as shall be mutually agreed upon by the Company and Parent. Each of Company and Parent may, without the consent of the other party, communicate to its directors, officers, employees, customers, suppliers and consultants so long as such communication is not inconsistent with previous statements made jointly by the Company and

 

90


Parent (or made by one party hereto in accordance with this Section 6.06) after having consulted with the other parties in accordance with this Section 6.06 or is consistent with a communications plan previously agreed to by Parent and the Company in which case such communications may be made consistent with such plan. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth therein or herein, the Company Confidentiality Agreement shall continue in full force and effect until the Closing. Nothing in this Section 6.06 shall limit the ability of any party hereto to make additional disclosures that are consistent in all but de minimis respects with the prior public disclosures regarding the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

Section 6.07 Indemnification of Officers and Directors.

Prior to the Closing, the Company shall reasonably cooperate with Parent with respect to the insurance requirements set forth in this Section 6.07.

(c) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, this Section 6.07 shall survive the consummation of the Public Merger and the LP Mergers and shall be binding, jointly and severally, on all successors and assigns of Parent, the Surviving Corporation and the Surviving Limited Partnerships.

Parent shall, or shall cause Parent’s applicable Subsidiaries, including the Surviving Corporation, to use reasonable best efforts to recognize, or cause to be recognized, in the plan year in which the Closing occurs, the dollar amount of all co-payments, deductibles and similar expenses incurred and paid by each Continuing Employee (and his or her eligible dependents) and credited under the Company Benefit Plan that is a group health plan during the calendar year in which the Effective Time occurs for purposes of satisfying such year’s deductible and co-payment limitations under the corresponding group health benefit plan of Parent or any of Parent’s Subsidiaries in which such Continuing Employee (and dependents) participates from and after the Effective Time.

(d) The provisions of this Section 6.10 are solely for the benefit of the parties to this Agreement, and no Continuing Employee (including any beneficiary or dependent thereof) or other Person shall be regarded for any purpose as a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement, and no provision of this Section 6.10 shall create such rights in any such Persons.

Without limiting the foregoing, Parent shall have the right to review, and comment on, in advance of distribution any

 

95


documentation to be distributed by any Acquired Company to any Client (or investors therein) pursuant to which the Company is requesting a Client Consent or otherwise in connection with the Transactions (in each case, other than materials that are substantially similar to materials already provided to Parent) and the Company shall consider all such comments of Parent in good faith prior to distribution (and the Company agrees that the documentation to be delivered to the Clients set forth on Section 6.12(b) of the Company Disclosure Letter (or any investors therein) shall address the matters described in Section 6.12(b) of the Company Disclosure Letter). From the date hereof until the Closing, the Company shall provide written notice to Parent as promptly as possible (and in any event no later than the third (3rd) Business Day following the receipt by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of such notification) of any notification to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (x) that any Client has determined not to provide any Client Consent or (y) of any new request for redemption or withdrawal in respect of any Mandate or any other termination of an Investment Advisory Arrangement.

(c) Without the prior written consent of Parent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), no Acquired Company shall (i) amend any Mandate, Investment Advisory Arrangement or Fund Documentation in a manner that would, in each such case, adversely affect the economic value of such Client relationship or otherwise materially modify any term, (ii) reduce or offer or promise to reduce any fee payable by any Client, investor or Mandate thereof or cap, reduce, waive, reimburse or otherwise modify the fees payable by (or in respect of) any Client, investor or Mandate thereof or (iii) make any payment to, or grant any other economic concession (including any obligation of the Company, any Subsidiary of the Company or Parent or any of their respective affiliates to make any payment or assume or incur any other obligation or liability) to, any Client or investor, in each case of the foregoing clauses (i) – (iii), to the extent such action would have a non-de minimis and adverse effect on the economic value of such Client or investor relationship during the period following the Closing.

(d) For any New Mandate, the Company shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, use reasonable best efforts to ensure that such New Mandate will not by its terms terminate (or give rise to a termination right) as a result of the consummation of the Transactions and shall use reasonable best efforts to obtain the written consent of the applicable Client to the Transactions, including the assignment of such New Mandate as a result of the consummation of the Transactions.

(e) Parent shall cooperate and use reasonable best efforts to assist the Company in all reasonable respects in connection with the seeking of the Client Consents (including by promptly providing any information reasonably requested by the Company in connection with the foregoing with respect to Parent or its Affiliates).

From and after the Closing, Parent shall prepare and timely file (or cause to be prepared and timely filed) (taking into account all valid extensions of time to file) all Pass-Through Tax Returns that are due (taking into account all valid extensions of time to file) after the Closing in a manner consistent with the past practices of the Operating Partnerships, except as otherwise required by Applicable Law; provided that, in preparing any such Pass-Through Tax Return, Parent and the Operating Partnerships shall act in good faith.

(c) Amendment of Tax Returns. Except as contemplated by Section 6.19(b), Section 6.19(d), and Section 6.19(e), from and after the Closing, neither Parent nor any of its Affiliates shall amend, refile, revoke or otherwise modify any Pass-Through Tax Return unless required by applicable Tax Law to take such action.

 

102


(d) 6226 Election. Except as otherwise determined by Parent, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, each Operating Partnership shall make and be permitted to make the election under Section 6226 of the Code (or a similar provision of state, local or other Tax Law) with respect to the alternative to payment of imputed underpayment by any Operating Partnership for any Pre-Closing Tax Period, and the parties shall take any other action such as filings, disclosures and notifications necessary to effectuate such election.

(e) Pass-Through Tax Contests. From and after the Closing, Parent shall control the defense of any audit, inquiry, examination, assessment, adjustment, proceeding or similar event with respect to any Pass-Through Tax Return (a “Tax Proceeding”); provided that, in controlling the defense of any such Tax Proceeding, Parent and the Operating Partnerships shall act in good faith. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 6.19(e) shall prevent Parent or its Affiliates from settling any proposed deficiency or adjustment by any Governmental Authority based upon or arising out of the foregoing, and neither Parent or its Affiliates shall be required to litigate before any court any proposed deficiency or adjustment by any Governmental Authority in connection therewith.

(f) The Company shall reasonably cooperate with Parent regarding modifications to the structure of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement that Parent reasonably requests in writing (including to integrate the Acquired Companies and/or their assets with Parent and any Affiliate of Parent); provided that (i) any such modifications do not, directly or indirectly, in the Company’s reasonable determination, have an adverse effect on the Acquired Companies or the Company’s stockholders or the holders of Operating Partnership Units, including any adverse effect on the time by which the Mergers may be consummated, (ii) no Acquired Company shall be required to take any action, or to refrain from taking any action, in each case, in contravention of (A) any organizational document of any Acquired Company, (B) any Company Material Contract or other contract to which such Person is a party, or (C) Applicable Law, (iii) any such modifications that involve obligations of the Acquired Companies to incur any liabilities shall be contingent upon all of the conditions set forth in Article VII having been satisfied or waived and receipt by the Company of a written notice from Parent to such effect and that the Parent is prepared to proceed immediately with the Closing and any other evidence reasonably requested by the Company that the Closing will occur (and that any action taken be unwound to the extent the Closing does not so occur), and (iv) such modifications (or the inability to complete such modifications) shall not affect or modify in any respect the obligations of Parent under this Agreement, including the amount of or timing of payment of the Public Merger Consideration and LP Merger Consideration. Subject to the limitations set forth above, such modifications shall be undertaken in the manner (including in the order) specified by Parent and, subject to the limitations set forth above and except as agreed by Parent and the Company, such actions or transactions shall be implemented immediately prior to or concurrent with the Closing. Without limiting the foregoing, (x) none of the representations, warranties or covenants of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries shall be deemed to apply to, or be deemed to be breached or violated by, the transactions or cooperation contemplated by this Section 6.19(f) and (y) the condition precedent set forth in Section 7.02(b), as applied to the Company’s obligations under this Section 6.19(f), shall be deemed to be satisfied unless the Company has committed a Willful Breach under this Section 6.19(f). Any costs associated with the Acquired Companies undertaking any of the actions set forth in this Section 6.19(f) shall be borne by Parent.

 

103


(g) Purchase Price Allocation. Within 120 days after the Closing Date, Parent shall prepare an allocation (the “Allocation”) of the aggregate LP Merger Consideration with respect to each Operating Partnership and any other items that are treated as additional consideration for Tax purposes as of the Closing Date (collectively, the “Tax Purchase Price”) among the assets of each Operating Partnership (and any disregarded entities of such Operating Partnership) (the “Allocation Statement”) in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Code and taking into account the interests of the persons that were the limited partners of the Operating Partnerships immediately prior to the Closing. The Allocation will be adjusted as appropriate to reflect any adjustments to the Tax Purchase Price. All applicable Pass-Through Tax Returns shall be prepared in a manner that is consistent with the Allocation, except to the extent otherwise required by Applicable Law.

Section 6.20 Takeover Statutes. Neither Parent nor the Company shall take any action that would cause the Transactions to be subject to requirements imposed by any Takeover Statute. If any Takeover Statute or other similar state anti-takeover Laws may become, or may purport to be applicable to the Mergers, the Rollover or any other Transactions, then each of the Company and Parent, the Company Board and the Special Committee shall grant such approvals and take such actions as are reasonably necessary so that the Transactions may be consummated as promptly as practicable on the terms contemplated hereby and by the terms of the Rollover Agreement and otherwise act to eliminate or minimize the effects of such Laws on the Transactions.

Section 6.21 Termination of Related Person Agreements. Effective upon the Closing, each Related Person Agreement, except as set forth on Section 6.21 of the Company Disclosure Letter, shall be terminated, in each case in a form reasonably acceptable to Parent, and the Company shall deliver evidence of all such effective terminations to Parent at or prior to the Closing.

Section 6.22 Additional Agreements. If at any time after the Effective Time any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this Agreement or to vest the Surviving Corporation and Surviving Limited Partnerships with full title to all properties, assets, rights, approvals, immunities and franchises of either of the Company or Merger Subs, then the proper officers and directors of each Party will use their reasonable best efforts to take such action.

Section 6.23 Rollover Matters. The parties agree to comply with Section 6.23 of the Company Disclosure Letter.

ARTICLE VIII

Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, this Agreement may be terminated and the Public Merger, the LP Mergers and the other Transactions may be abandoned at any time prior to the Effective Time and LP Mergers Effective Time, as applicable, notwithstanding receipt of the Required Company Stockholder Approval and the Required Operating Partnership Approval (except as expressly noted in Section 8.01(d), Section 8.01(g) and Section 8.01(h)), only as follows:

107


(e) by Parent, (i) if there is any breach by the Company or the Operating Partnerships of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of the Company or the Operating Partnerships set forth in this Agreement, such that the conditions specified in Section 7.02(a) or Section 7.02(b) would not be satisfied at the Closing (a “Terminating Company Breach”), (ii) Parent shall have delivered written notice to the Company of such Terminating Company Breach, and (iii) such Terminating Company Breach is not capable of cure prior to the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the End Date or such Terminating Company Breach shall not have been cured within the earlier of thirty (30) days after the date of delivery of such written notice to the Company and five (5) Business Days before the End Date; provided, however, that Parent shall not have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.01(e) if Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II or Merger Sub III is then in breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement such that any condition set forth in Section 7.03(a) or Section 7.03(b) would not be satisfied;

(f) by the Company, (i) if there is any breach by Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II or Merger Sub III of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II or Merger Sub III, respectively, set forth in this Agreement, such that the conditions specified in Section 7.03(a) or Section 7.03(b) would not be satisfied at the Closing (a “Terminating Parent Breach”), (ii) the Company shall have delivered written notice to Parent of such Terminating Parent Breach, and (iii) such Terminating Parent Breach is not capable of cure prior to the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the End Date or such Terminating Parent Breach shall not have been cured within the earlier of thirty (30) days after the date of delivery of such written notice to Parent and five (5) Business Days before the End Date; provided, however, that the Company shall not have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.01(f) if the Company or the Operating Partnerships are then in breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement such that any condition set forth in Section 7.02(a) or Section 7.02(b) would not be satisfied;

Except as otherwise set forth in this Section 8.02 and Section 8.03, in the event of the valid termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01, this Agreement shall forthwith become void and have no effect, without any liability on the part of any party hereto or its respective Affiliates, officers, directors, stockholders, partners or other equityholders or any Representative of any of the foregoing other than liability of the Company or the Operating Partnerships (in each case, subject to Section 8.03) or of Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II or Merger Sub III, as the case may be, for any intentional common law fraud or any Willful Breach of this Agreement occurring prior to such termination.

Section 8.03 Company Termination Fee.

(a) If, but only if, this Agreement is validly terminated:

(i) (x) by Parent or the Company pursuant to Section 8.01(b) or Section 8.01(d) or by Parent pursuant to Section 8.01(e), and (1) in the case of a termination pursuant to Section 8.01(b), at the time of such termination, the conditions set forth in Section 7.01(b) and Section 7.01(c) have been satisfied or (2) in the case of a termination pursuant to Section 8.01(d) or Section 8.01(e), at the time of such termination, the Company is not able to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(c), and in each case of clauses (1) and (2), the conditions set forth in Section 7.03(a) and Section 7.03(b) would be satisfied if the date of such termination were the Closing Date (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at the Closing, which conditions shall be capable of being satisfied if the Closing were to occur); and (y) following the execution and delivery of this Agreement and prior to the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(b), Section 8.01(d) or Section 8.01(e), as applicable, (A) an Acquisition Proposal has been made and has not been withdrawn and (B) within twelve (12) months of the termination of this Agreement, the Company enters into a definitive agreement for the consummation of, any Acquisition Proposal and such Acquisition Proposal is subsequently consummated (regardless of whether such consummation occurs within the twelve (12)-month period), then the Company shall pay, or cause to be paid, to Parent or its designee the Company Termination Fee within three (3) Business Days after the date on which such Acquisition Proposal is consummated; provided, however, that for purposes of this Section 8.03(a), the references to “fifteen percent (15%)” in the definition of Acquisition Proposal shall be deemed to be references to “fifty percent (50%)”;

(ii) by Parent pursuant to Section 8.01(g) or by the Company pursuant to Section 8.01(d) if an Adverse Recommendation Change shall have occurred, then the Company shall pay, or cause to be paid, to Parent or its designee the Company Termination Fee within three (3) Business Days following such termination; or

(iii) by the Company pursuant to Section 8.01(h), the Company shall pay, or cause to be paid, to Parent or its designee the Company Termination Fee within three (3) Business Days following such termination.

 

 

109


(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, but subject to Section 9.02 and except as set forth in the Ancillary Agreements, if this Agreement is terminated in accordance with any provision under which payment of the Company Termination Fee is required hereunder, then upon receipt and acceptance of such Company Termination Fee and the Enforcement Expenses (if any), the payment of such Company Termination Fee and the Enforcement Expenses (if any) (if payable and accepted by Parent) shall, constitute the sole and exclusive remedy of Parent, the Merger Subs and any other Parent Related Party against (i) the Company, (ii) the Operating Partnerships and (iii) any of the Company’s or any Operating Partnership’s former, current and future Representatives, assignees, stockholders, directors, officers, partners, members, managers, general or limited partners, other equityholders, controlling Persons and any Representatives of any of the foregoing (the Persons described in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), collectively and in their capacity as such, the “Company Related Parties”) for any breach, loss or damage suffered as a result of the failure of the Transactions to be consummated or for a breach or failure to perform hereunder or otherwise, and upon payment and acceptance of the Company Termination Fee and the Enforcement Expenses (if any) (if payable and accepted by Parent), no Person shall have any rights or claims against the Company Related Parties under this Agreement, whether at Law or equity, in Contract, in tort or otherwise, and the Company Related Parties shall not have any other liability, relating to or arising out of this Agreement or the Transactions; provided, that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, nothing shall limit Parent’s ability to recover damages in excess of the Company Termination Fee or to pursue such other remedies as permitted hereunder in the event of any intentional common law fraud or a Willful Breach by the Company or the Operating Partnerships unless (x) Parent accepts payment of the Company Termination Fee or (y) Parent fails to commence a Proceeding to recover damages in excess of the Company Termination within sixty (60) days after the date that the Company Termination Fee becomes due and payable, in which case after such sixty (60) days payment of the Company Termination Fee shall be Parent’s sole and exclusive remedy for such intentional common law fraud or Willful Breach (and for the avoidance of doubt, commencing a Proceeding to recover damages shall not waive any of Parent’s rights to accept payment of the Company Termination Fee). Nothing in this Section 8.03(b) shall in any way expand or be deemed or construed to expand the circumstances in which the Company, the Operating Partnerships or any other Company Related Party may be liable under this Agreement or the Transactions (including in respect of any Financing incurred in connection with the Transactions). For the avoidance of doubt, while Parent or Merger Subs may pursue both a grant of specific performance of the type contemplated by Section 9.02 and payment of the Company Termination Fee pursuant to Section 8.03(a), under no circumstances shall Parent or any Merger Sub be permitted or entitled to receive both a grant of specific performance of the type contemplated by Section 9.02 and monetary damages, including all or any portion of the Company Termination Fee.

(c) Each of the parties acknowledge and agree that the agreements contained in Section 8.02 and this Section 8.03 are an integral part of the Transactions, and that, without these agreements, each party would not enter into this Agreement. The parties acknowledge and agree that the Company Termination Fee is not a penalty, but rather is liquidated damages in a reasonable amount that will compensate Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II and Merger Sub III in the circumstance in which such fee is payable for the efforts and resources expended and opportunities foregone while negotiating this Agreement and in reliance on this Agreement and on the expectation of the consummation of the Mergers. The parties hereto acknowledge and hereby agree that in no event shall the Company be required to pay the Company Termination Fee on more than one occasion, and any payment of the Company Termination Fee shall be paid net of (and not in addition to) any payment previously made by the Company of the Parent Expenses.

 

110


(d) Any amounts payable pursuant to Section 8.02, Section 8.03(a) or this Section 8.03(d) shall be paid by wire transfer of same day funds to an account designated by Parent or the Company, as applicable (at least two (2) Business Days prior to the date such amount is to be paid). If the Company or Parent, as applicable, fails to pay when due any amount payable under Section 8.02 or Section 8.03(a), as applicable, and in order to collect such amount, Parent or the Company, as applicable, commences a Proceeding that results in a Governmental Order against the Company or Parent for monetary damages (including the Company Termination Fee), as applicable, then such party shall reimburse the other for all reasonable, documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including fees and disbursements of counsel) incurred in connection with such Proceeding, together with interest on such amount at an annual rate equal to the prime rate (as published in The Wall Street Journal) (or other authoritative source to the extent no such figure is published by The Wall Street Journal) on the date that such payment was required to be made plus five percent (5%) through the date that such payment was actually received, or a lesser rate that is the maximum permitted by Applicable Law (collectively, “Enforcement Expenses”).

(e) Notwithstanding anything in this Section 8.03 to the contrary, in the event that, at the time the Company Termination Fee, Enforcement Expenses, Parent Expenses, or payment of damages due to Willful Breach or fraud (each of the foregoing, a “Potential Company Payment”) is required to be paid, Parent (or the regarded parent of which Parent is a direct or indirect disregarded entity for U.S. federal income tax purposes) is an entity intended to qualify as a “real estate investment trust” under Section 856 of the Code, and counsel or independent accountants for Parent determines that there exists a material risk that any amounts due to Parent under this Section 8.03 would be treated as Nonqualifying Income upon the payment of such amounts to Parent, then the Company shall be notified pursuant to the procedures set forth below in this Section 8.03(e) and the provisions of this Section 8.03(e) shall apply such that the amount paid to Parent pursuant to this Section 8.03 in any tax year shall not exceed the maximum amount that can be paid to Parent (or its regarded parent) in such year without causing it to fail to meet the REIT Requirements for such year, determined as if the payment of such amount were Nonqualifying Income as determined by such counsel or independent accountants to Parent as further described in this Section 8.03(e) (such maximum amount, the “REIT Cap”). If (A) the REIT Cap for any tax year under the preceding sentence is less than (B) the amount which would otherwise be obligated to be paid to Parent with respect to Potential Company Payments (the excess of (B) over (A), the “Fee/Expense Amount”), then: (1) Parent shall promptly notify in writing the Company at least (2) Business Days prior to the date the applicable Potential Company Payment is scheduled to be paid of the Fee/Expense Amount, and the Company shall place the Fee/Expense Amount into an escrow account (the “Fee/Expense Escrow Account”) using an escrow agent and agreement reasonably acceptable to Parent and the Company and shall not release any portion thereof to Parent, (2) Parent shall not be entitled to any such amount, unless and until Parent delivers to the Company and the escrow agent, at the sole option and expense of Parent, (i) an opinion (a “Fee/Expense Amount Tax Opinion”) of Parent’s tax counsel to the effect that such amount, if and to the extent paid, would not constitute Nonqualifying Income, (ii) a letter (a “Fee/Expense Amount Accountant’s Letter”) from Parent’s independent accountants indicating the maximum amount that can be paid at that time to Parent without causing the Parent (or its regarded parent) to fail to meet the REIT Requirements for any relevant taxable year, or (iii) a private letter ruling issued by the IRS to Parent (or its regarded parent) indicating that the receipt of any Fee/Expense Amount hereunder will not cause Parent (or such regarded parent) to fail to satisfy the REIT Requirements (a “REIT Qualification Ruling” and, collectively with a Fee/Expense Amount Tax

 

111


Opinion and a Fee/Expense Amount Accountant’s Letter, a “Release Document”) and, in each case, certifies that such delivery constitutes a Release Document; and (3) pending the delivery of a Release Document, Parent shall have the right, but not the obligation, to borrow the Fee/Expense Amount from the Fee/Expense Escrow Account pursuant to a loan agreement reasonably acceptable to Parent and the escrow agent that (i) requires the escrow agent to lend the recipient immediately available cash proceeds in an amount equal to the Fee/Expense Amount, and (ii) provides for (A) a commercially reasonable interest rate and commercially reasonable covenants, taking into account the credit standing and profile of Parent or any guarantor of Parent at the time of such loan, and (B) a fifteen (15) year maturity with no periodic amortization. Any portion of the Fee/Expense Amount that remains in escrow as of December 31 following the date which is five years from the date of this Agreement shall be released by the escrow agent to the Company and Parent shall have no rights thereto. Upon deposit by the Company of the Fee/Expense Amount in the Fee/Expense Escrow Account (and paying the balance of the applicable Potential Company Payment as required by this Agreement), the Company shall have been deemed to have satisfied in full its obligation to Parent to pay the applicable Potential Company Payment (but for the avoidance of doubt not any other Potential Company Payments) and shall not be subject to any additional liability or obligation in respect of such Potential Company Payment under or pursuant to this Agreement.

(f) Without limiting any obligation of the Company to pay the Company Termination Fee or the Enforcement Expenses, if and when they become due and payable pursuant to this Section 8.03, if Parent or the Company terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(d), then the Company shall pay or cause to be paid to Parent the amount of the Parent Expenses, in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by Parent within two (2) Business Days of such termination.

Section 9.02 Remedies Cumulative; Specific Performance.

(a) The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage would occur, and that the parties would not have any adequate remedy at law, in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached (including any party hereto failing to take such actions as are required of it hereunder to consummate the Transactions). It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance and other equitable relief to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to specifically enforce the terms and provisions of this Agreement, without proof of actual damages or otherwise, in addition to any other remedy to which any party is entitled at law or in equity. Each party agrees that it will not oppose the granting of an injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief on the basis that any other party has an adequate remedy at law or that any award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at law or in equity. Any party seeking an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall not be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with any such order or injunction. The parties further agree not to assert that a remedy of specific enforcement is unenforceable, invalid, contrary to law or inequitable for any reason, nor to assert that a remedy of monetary damages would provide an adequate remedy.

(b) To the extent any party hereto brings a Proceeding to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions of this Agreement (other than a Proceeding to enforce specifically any provision that expressly survives termination of this Agreement), the End Date shall automatically be extended to (i) the twentieth (20th) Business Day following the resolution of such Proceeding or (ii) such other time period established by the court presiding over such Proceedings (it being understood that this Section 9.02 is not intended and shall not be construed to limit in any way the provisions of Section 8.03(b) or Section 8.03(c)).

Section 9.03 Expenses. Except as set forth in Section 8.03(a), Section 8.03(d), Section 8.03(f) and this Section 9.03, each party hereto shall bear its own expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the Transactions whether or not such Transactions shall be consummated, including all fees of its legal counsel, financial advisers and accountants; provided that, in the event that the Transactions are not consummated, Parent shall pay fees and expenses in connection with any financing arrangements pursuant to Section 6.17; provided, further, that except as set forth in Section 3.03(e), the Acquired Companies shall bear and timely pay all Transfer Taxes and shall prepare and timely file, at its expense, all Tax Returns and other documentation with respect to such Transfer Taxes. The parties shall cooperate in good faith to minimize, to the fullest extent possible under such Tax Laws, the amount of any such Transfer Taxes payable in connection therewith.

Section 9.04 No Survival of Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties and covenants and agreements in this Agreement and in any certificate or other writing delivered pursuant hereto by any Person, other than the representations and warranties set forth in Section 4.30 and Section 5.15, shall terminate at the Effective Time or LP Mergers Effective Time, as applicable, except (a) as provided in Section 8.02, upon the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01, as the case may be, and (b) that this Section 9.04 shall not limit any covenant or agreement of the parties which by its terms contemplates performance after the Effective Time or the LP Mergers Effective Time, including those contained in Section 6.07 and Section 6.10.

 

114


Section 9.05 Amendments and Waivers.

(a) Any provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived prior to the Effective Time or LP Mergers Effective Time if, but only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and is signed, in the case of an amendment, by each party to this Agreement or, in the case of a waiver, by each party against whom the waiver is to be effective; provided, however, that no amendment or waiver shall be made subsequent to receipt of the Required Company Stockholder Approval which requires further approval of the stockholders of the Company pursuant to the DGCL without such further stockholder approval.

(b) No failure or delay by any party in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by Applicable Law.

Section 9.06 Disclosure Letter References. The parties hereto agree that any reference in a particular Section or subsection of the Company Disclosure Letter shall only be deemed to be an exception to (or, as applicable, a disclosure for purposes of) (a) the representations and warranties (or covenants, as applicable) of the Company and the Operating Partnerships, as applicable, that are contained in the corresponding Section or subsection of this Agreement and (b) any other representations and warranties (or covenant, as applicable) of the Company and the Operating Partnerships, as applicable, that are contained in this Agreement, but only if the relevance of that reference as an exception to (or a disclosure for purposes of) such representations and warranties (or covenant, as applicable) is reasonably apparent on the face of such disclosure. The listing of any matter on the Company Disclosure Letter shall not be deemed to constitute an admission by the Company, or to otherwise imply, that any such matter is material, is required to be disclosed by such party under this Agreement or falls within relevant minimum thresholds or materiality standards set forth in this Agreement. No disclosure in the Company Disclosure Letter relating to any possible breach or violation by the Company of any Contract or Applicable Law shall be construed as an admission or indication that any such breach or violation exists or has actually occurred. In no event shall the listing of any matter in the Company Disclosure Letter be deemed or interpreted to expand the scope of the Company’s or the Operating Partnerships’ representations, warranties and/or covenants set forth in this Agreement except as set forth in this Agreement.

Section 9.07 Binding Effect; Benefit; Assignment.

(a) This Agreement shall be binding upon, inure solely to the benefit of and be enforceable by each party hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns. Nothing in this Agreement, express or implied is intended to or shall confer upon any other Person any right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement; provided, however, that, notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) from and after the Effective Time and the LP Mergers Effective Time, the Company Indemnified Parties shall be intended third-party beneficiaries of, and may enforce, Section 6.07, (ii) from and after the Effective Time and the LP Mergers Effective Time, the holders of shares of Company Class A Common Stock, Operating Partnership Units converted into the right to receive LP Merger Consideration and holders of Company Stock Awards as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and LP Mergers Effective Time shall be intended third-party beneficiaries solely for the purpose of receiving the

 

115


consideration that such holder is entitled to pursuant to Section 3.01, Section 3.02 or Section 3.06 as applicable, and (iii) the Company Related Parties and the Parent Related Parties are intended third-party beneficiaries of, and may enforce, Section 8.03(b), Section 8.03(d), Section 9.02, Section 9.08, Section 9.09, Section 9.10 and Section 9.14.

(b) Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder shall be assigned by any of the parties hereto without the prior written consent of the other parties, except that Parent and each Merger Sub will have the right to assign all or any portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (i) to any of its Affiliates (provided that such assignment would not reasonably be expected to delay the Closing or satisfaction of any condition to Closing hereunder) or (ii) to any source of debt financing for purposes of creating a security interest herein or otherwise assigning as collateral in respect of such debt financing; provided that, in the case of clauses (i) and (ii), any assignment by Parent or any Merger Sub shall not relieve Parent or any Merger Sub of its obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Parent will have the right to assign all or any portion of its equity interests in the Merger Subs to any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. Any purported assignment in violation of this Section 9.07(b) shall be null and void.

Section 9.08 Governing Law. This Agreement and all Proceedings (whether based on Contract, tort or otherwise) based upon, arising out of, or related to this Agreement, the Transactions, or the actions of Parent, Merger Sub Inc., Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II, Merger Sub III or the Company or any Operating Partnership in the negotiation, administration, performance and enforcement thereof, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the Laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to principles or rules of conflict of laws to the extent such principles or rules would require or permit the application of Laws of another jurisdiction.

Section 9.09 Jurisdiction.

(a) Each of the parties hereto hereby expressly, irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or, if such court shall not have jurisdiction, any Federal court of the United States of America sitting in Delaware, and any appellate court from any appeal thereof, in any Proceeding based upon, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the agreements delivered in connection herewith or the Transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment relating thereto, and each of the parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally (i) agrees not to commence any such Proceeding except in such courts, (ii) agrees that any claim in respect of any such Proceeding may be heard and determined in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, in such Federal court, (iii) waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such Proceeding in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or such Federal court and (iv) waives, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such Proceeding in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such Proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced by a court of competent jurisdiction in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Applicable Law. Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process outside the territorial jurisdiction of the courts referred to in this Section 9.09 in any such Proceeding by mailing copies thereof by registered or certified U.S. mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to its address as specified in or pursuant to Section 9.01. However, nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process on any other party in any other manner permitted by Applicable Law.

 

116


Section 9.10 Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ANY CONTROVERSY WHICH MAY BE BASED UPON, ARISE OUT OF OR RELATE TO THIS AGREEMENT IS LIKELY TO INVOLVE COMPLICATED AND DIFFICULT ISSUES, AND THEREFORE IT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BASED UPON, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY OF THE AGREEMENTS DELIVERED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY. EACH PARTY CERTIFIES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT (I) NO REPRESENTATIVE OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF ANY PROCEEDING, SEEK TO ENFORCE EITHER OF SUCH WAIVERS, (II) IT UNDERSTANDS AND HAS CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF SUCH WAIVERS, (III) IT MAKES SUCH WAIVERS VOLUNTARILY AND (IV) IT HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 9.10.

Section 9.11 Counterparts; Effectiveness. This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument. This Agreement shall become effective when each party hereto shall have received a counterpart hereof signed by all of the other parties hereto. Until and unless each party has received a counterpart hereof signed by the other parties hereto, this Agreement shall have no effect and no party shall have any right or obligation hereunder (whether by virtue of any other oral or written agreement or other communication). The exchange of a fully executed Agreement (in counterparts or otherwise) by electronic transmission in .PDF format or through an electronic signature service or by facsimile shall be sufficient to bind the parties to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. No party may raise the use of any of the foregoing methods to deliver a signature, or the fact that any signature, agreement, or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of any of the foregoing methods, as a defense to the formation of a Contract, and each party forever waives any such defense.

Section 9.12 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements constitute the entire agreement of the parties and supersede all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, among the parties, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof and, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, are not intended to confer upon any other Person any rights or remedies hereunder or thereunder.

Section 9.13 Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority to be invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of Applicable Law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the Transactions is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner to the end that the Transactions are consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.

 

117


Section 9.14 No Recourse. Each party hereto agrees, on behalf of itself and its Related Parties, that all Proceedings (whether based on Contract, tort or otherwise, including whether by or through attempted piercing of the corporate, limited partnership or limited liability company veil or any other theory or doctrine, including alter ego or otherwise) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to: (a) this Agreement or the Transactions; (b) the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement or any of the Transactions; (c) any breach or violation of this Agreement; or (d) any failure of any Transaction to be consummated, in each case, may be made only (i) against (and are those solely of) the Persons that are, in the case of this Agreement, expressly identified as parties to this Agreement; and (ii) in accordance with, and subject to the terms and conditions of, this Agreement, except for Proceedings against any Person that is party to an Ancillary Agreement or other Contract pursuant to the terms thereof. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, each party hereto agrees, on behalf of itself and its Related Parties, that no recourse under this Agreement or in connection with any Transaction will be sought or had against any other Person, including any Company Related Party or Parent Related Party, and no other Person, including any Related Party, will have any liabilities or obligations (whether based on Contract, tort or otherwise, including whether by or through attempted piercing of the corporate, limited partnership or limited liability company veil or any other theory or doctrine, including alter ego or otherwise), for any claims, causes of action, obligations or liabilities based upon, arising out of or related to any item in clauses (a) through (d) above, except for claims, causes of action, obligations or liabilities against any Person that is party to an Ancillary Agreement or other Contract pursuant to the terms thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Agreement shall limit the ability of the parties to the Agreement or their respective Related Parties to bring counterclaims in connection with any Proceeding brought against such parties or their Affiliates by any other Person.

The Client Consent Percentage shall be at least 85% and an executive officer of the Company shall have delivered a certificate to such effect.

Definitions:

Adjusted Base Date Revenue Run Rate” means $235,772,323, which represents (a) the Base Date Revenue Run Rate less (b) the Base Date Revenue Run Rate attributable to Excluded Clients AUM, in each case, as set forth on the Revenue Run Rate Schedule.

Base Date” means May 31, 2023.

Base Date Existing Mandate” means a Mandate that is in effect as of the Base Date.

Client Consent” means that the consent required for the “assignment” (as defined in the Advisers Act) of a Client of a Mandate (or the consent of an investor or investors in a pooled investment vehicle that is a Client, as applicable) resulting from the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement has been received in a manner required under the Mandate and Applicable Law (including the Advisers Act); provided that receipt of consent pursuant to the consent process set forth in the Revenue Run Rate Schedule as it relates to any particular Client will be deemed to constitute a valid Client Consent with respect to such Client.

Client Consent Percentage” means a fraction (expressed as a percentage), the numerator of which is the Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate and the denominator of which is the Adjusted Base Date Revenue Run Rate.

Closed-End Fund” means each of the Clients identified on the Revenue Run Rate Schedule as a “Closed-End Fund”.

Consenting Client” means each Client of a Mandate (i) for which a Client Consent has been obtained (or has been deemed to have been obtained) in accordance with the consent process set forth in the definition of “Client Consent” and which remains in full force and effect (and has not been withdrawn or revoked) as of the Effective Time and (ii) that has not suffered a Termination Event.

Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate” means, as of the date that is five Business Days prior to the Closing Date or, with respect to a New Mandate that is entered into following such date and prior to the Closing Date, as of the New Mandate Start Date (each such date, the “Closing Measurement Date”), the aggregate Revenue Run Rate attributable to all Mandates of all Consenting Clients (subject to the other provisions in this definition, calculated using the same methodology used to calculate the Adjusted Base Date Revenue Run Rate); provided that:

(i) without regard to the actual assets under management of any Mandate as of the Closing Measurement Date, the assets under management used to determine such aggregate Revenue Run Rate shall be determined by using the assets under management in respect of such Mandate as of the Base Date (or in the case of a New Mandate, as of the New Mandate Start Date) and (A) increasing such assets under management for new or additional capital commitments and additions and contributions of funds made after the Base Date (or New

 

C-1


Mandate Start Date, if applicable) with respect to such Mandate (for the avoidance of doubt, that would be taken into account in the “fee base” used to calculate the applicable investment management or sub-advisory fees), (B) decreasing such assets under management for any reductions or waivers of capital commitments, withdrawals and redemptions occurring after the Base Date (or New Mandate Start Date, if applicable) with respect to such Mandate (or, solely in the case of this clause (B), written notice of any of the foregoing from any Client or, if applicable, any investor therein, to the extent the assets under management subject to such notice have not been included in the Excluded Clients AUM) and (C) decreasing such assets under management for capital commitments of any Client (or any investor in any Client) that is in default for failing to fund a capital call (and such default has not been cured in accordance with the applicable Fund Documentation);

(ii) any increase or decrease in the applicable assets under management after the Base Date (or New Mandate Start Date, if applicable) with respect to such Mandate due to (A) market appreciation or market depreciation of the underlying investments or other assets managed pursuant to such Mandate, (B) currency fluctuations or (C) ordinary course distributions of interest, income or capital gains (and with respect to (I) Closed-End Funds, returns of capital from dispositions of investments in the ordinary course and (II) CLOs, payments of principal made in the ordinary course pursuant to the existing amortization waterfall provisions following the scheduled end of the reinvestment period) will not be taken into account in determining the assets under management used in the Revenue Run Rate for such Mandate for the purposes of the calculation of Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate; and

(iii) the aggregate Revenue Run Rate attributable to all Mandates of all Related Clients shall not exceed $1,000,000 for purposes of the calculation of Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate.

For the avoidance of doubt, (x) to the extent the Company receives a written request from a Client to redeem or withdraw funds from a pooled investment vehicle following the date of the Agreement, and such Client has provided its Client Consent, then “Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate” in respect of such Client shall be calculated as if such withdrawal or redemption had already occurred (and the assets under management in respect of such Client that are utilized in the calculation of Revenue Run Rate and Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate shall be reduced to give effect to such withdrawal or redemption), (y) Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate shall not include any Revenue Run Rate attributable to Excluded Clients AUM and (z) Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate shall (1) include the Revenue Run Rate attributable to any Mandate from a Client that is a Consenting Client as of the close of business on the date immediately prior to the Closing Date (including Clients that become Consenting Clients subsequent to the Closing Measurement Date) and (2) exclude the Revenue Run Rate attributable to any Mandate from a Client that ceases to be a Consenting Client prior to the close of business on the date immediately prior to the Closing Date.

Excluded Clients AUM” means the aggregate assets under management by the Acquired Companies as of the Base Date (i) in respect of the CLOs with Excluded Clients AUM set forth on the Revenue Run Rate Schedule or (ii) for which any Acquired Company has received any written withdrawal or redemption request prior to the date hereof.

Mandate” means, with respect to any Client, an Investment Advisory Arrangement or similar agreement pursuant to which such Client agrees to, or has agreed to, a commitment of capital or renewal or extension of such commitment, or contribution of capital or has otherwise agreed to pay a fee in exchange for the provision of Investment Management Services.

 

C-2


“Negative Consent” or “negative consent” means, with respect to any Client (or an investor or investors in a pooled investment vehicle that is a Client, as applicable) of a Mandate, that the Company provides a written notice (a “Consent Notice”) to the Client of such Mandate stating that such Client’s affirmative written consent with respect to the Transactions will be deemed to have been granted, including for purposes of the Advisers Act, if such Client (or an investor or investors in a pooled investment vehicle that is a Client, as applicable) has not objected in writing to the assignment of its Mandate or the Transactions by a date that is at least forty-five (45) days after the provision of the Consent Notice.

New Mandate” means a Mandate that is entered into following the Base Date and before the Closing Date in accordance with Section 6.01 of the Agreement. A commitment of capital or renewal or extension of such commitment, or contributions or withdrawals of capital from a Base Date Existing Mandate, in each case in accordance with Section 6.01 of the Agreement, shall be deemed not to constitute a New Mandate.

New Mandate Start Date” means, with respect a New Mandate, the date that such New Mandate is established.

Related Client” means (a) any Acquired Company and (b) any employee of any Acquired Company and any of their Family Related Parties; provided that Revenue Run Rate of a Related Client shall not include amounts invested by any Acquired Company as of the Base Date in Sculptor Alternative Solutions, LLC or any CLO.

Revenue Run Rate” means, with respect to any Mandate as of any date of determination, the aggregate annualized investment advisory, investment management or sub-advisory fees payable to the Company, any Operating Partnership or their respective wholly-owned Subsidiaries in respect of such Mandate as of such date of determination under the applicable Investment Advisory Arrangement, in each case, (i) excluding any carried interest or similar performance-based fees, incentive fees, transaction or similar fees, and any non-recurring fees based upon a discrete transaction (such as distribution fees, securities lending fees, broker-dealer fees, registration and filing fees), (ii) after reduction for any fee rebates, fee waivers, expense reimbursement (or assumption) arrangements or discounts or similar offsets as of such date of determination, (iii) net of any sub-advisory fees paid to a Person other than the Company, any Operating Partnership or their respective Subsidiaries and (iv) calculated consistent with (A) for the Consenting Client Revenue Run Rate, the provisions set forth in such definition (which, for the avoidance of doubt, supersede the methodology under the applicable Investment Advisory Arrangement to the extent set forth in such definition) and (B) subject to the immediately preceding clause (A), the calculation principles utilized in calculating the Adjusted Base Date Revenue Run Rate and the other amounts set forth on the Revenue Run Rate Schedule.

Revenue Run Rate Schedule” means the schedule set forth on Annex A hereto.

Termination Event” means, with respect to a Mandate, that (a) the applicable Client (or, as applicable, the board of directors or trustees, advisory committee or investors thereof) of such Mandate has provided written notice to the Company, any Operating Partnership or any of their respective wholly-owned Subsidiaries (that has not been withdrawn) (i) that it is terminating such Mandate in accordance with its Fund Documentation, (ii) that it intends to withdraw its

 

C-3


Client Consent or (iii) that it is seeking the acceleration or early termination of the investment or commitment period or term of the Fund (prior to the natural expiry of such investment or commitment period or term) applicable to such Mandate in a manner permitted by the applicable Fund Documentation or (b) with respect to a Client that is a Fund, that there has been a key-man (or similar) event or an event constituting cause, disabling conduct, the requisite grounds for no-fault removal of the general partner or managing member (or equivalent) or no-fault termination under such Fund’s Fund Documentation, in each case under this clause (b), that (A) has been determined to have occurred pursuant to the requisite vote or other procedures provided for under such Fund’s Fund Documentation if required, (B) has not been cured or waived in accordance with such Fund’s Fund Documentation, and (C) results in the early or accelerated termination of the investment or commitment period, term or dissolution of such Fund.

Sculptor’s investment and leadership teams will continue in their roles and certain members of Sculptor leadership have agreed to vote shares held by them, representing an aggregate of approximately 26% of the outstanding Sculptor voting shares, in favor of the transaction. Upon completion of the transaction, Sculptor will operate as a subsidiary of Rithm and will continue to be led by Jimmy Levin, as CIO and Executive Managing Partner, reporting to Michael Nierenberg, Chief Executive Officer, President, and Chairman of Rithm. Sculptor will continue to operate as is - with an intense focus on delivering risk adjusted returns on the capital with which it has been entrusted.

Jimmy Levin, Chief Investment Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Sculptor, stated “We are extremely pleased about the opportunity to combine with Rithm to capitalize on the growing opportunity set we see in our business. We are excited to leverage this combination to continue to execute on our mission of providing our fund investors with attractive investment returns. We have long sought a partner with the stable capital structure, culture and vision to help unlock the potential for our platform to deliver more and greater value to our fund investors.”

Marcy Engel, Chairperson of Sculptor’s Board of Directors, stated “We are thrilled to deliver a great outcome for Sculptor shareholders and an opportunity for Sculptor to continue to build on its exceptional platform. We look forward to watching the combined company grow its already strong position as a leader in the alternative asset management space.”

Key Transaction Details

Rithm will acquire Sculptor in a transaction valued at approximately $639 million(2). Sculptor Class A shareholders will receive cash consideration equal to $11.15 per share, with Sculptor operating partnership unitholders receiving the applicable amount of cash consideration in accordance with the Sculptor partnership agreements based on such $11.15 per share price. The parties also expect that, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, Sculptor operating partnership Class A / Class A-1 unitholders will be given the opportunity, in lieu of receiving cash consideration, to roll their Sculptor partnership units into partnership units of one or more Rithm subsidiaries. The transaction represents a premium of 18% over the closing price of Sculptor’s Class A shares on July 21, 2023 and a premium of 31% over the unaffected November 17, 2022 closing Class A share price of $8.50(3).

The transaction is expected to be funded from Rithm’s cash on hand and available liquidity and is expected to be accretive to Rithm shareholders in 2025.

The Sculptor Board of Directors, acting on the unanimous recommendation of the Special Committee, has unanimously approved the transaction and has recommended that Sculptor shareholders vote to approve it as well. Rithm’s Board of Directors has also unanimously approved the transaction. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approvals by Sculptor’s shareholders (including the approval by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Class A stock not owned by Class A / A-1 unitholder shareholders or executive managing directors of Sculptor as of July 23, 2023 or the date of Sculptor’s shareholder meeting to approve the transaction), certain regulatory approvals, and the receipt of certain consents. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2023.
