     (d)        No injunction, action, restraining order, judgment or other ruling issued by any court of competent jurisdiction or governmental authority, or any other legal restraint or prohibition preventing the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby shall then be in effect, including, without limitation, any directive or other requirement issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System not to close the transaction contemplated by this Agreement; and

     (e)        Buyer has provided all information (which information Buyer hereby represents, warrants and covenants to be true, accurate and complete) requested by Seller to perform Seller’s due diligence on Buyer and Seller’s diligence regarding Buyer has not revealed any information regarding Buyer or its principals, officers, directors, or direct or indirect owners that would fail to satisfy, in Seller’s determination, Seller’s (including for the purposes of this sentence, the controlling party and the beneficial owner of Seller) internal due diligence approval criteria for Seller’s consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

Section 4.3        Failure or Waiver of Conditions Precedent.  In the event any of the conditions set forth in Section 4.1 or 4.2 do not occur as of the Closing Date, or have not been waived in writing by the party for whose benefit the failed condition exists, such party may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the other party, and neither party shall have any further obligation to the other, other than as stated in this Agreement to survive a termination hereof, and the Deposit shall be returned or retained by the party entitled thereto as provided for in this Agreement.

-11-


Additionally, in no event shall Seller be required to deliver or make available to Buyer any item from the Loan File (i) that was designated as confidential in the Pending Proceedings, unless Buyer (or its assignee pursuant to Section 7.6 hereof) has signed the applicable Stipulation and Order of Confidentiality as required in the Pending Proceedings or (ii) that may reasonably be expected to result in a waiver of any attorney-client, work product or other privilege to which Seller is entitled. Seller and Buyer each intend that the delivery to Buyer of items from the Loan File pursuant to this Section 5.3(b) shall not be construed as a waiver of any attorney-client, work product or other privilege to which Seller is entitled. All actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses of any of the Released Parties incurred in connection with this Section 5.3(b) shall be paid by Buyer. Subject to the foregoing, subsequent to Closing Buyer’s counsel may review the files relating to the Pending Proceedings maintained by Seller’s counsel at the office of Seller’s counsel, and request copies therefrom of any pleadings, motions and other court-filed papers, any discovery materials, including all requests, responses, transcripts of depositions, and other relevant written correspondence between or among the Court and counsel for the parties in the Pending Proceedings.

Section 5.4        Closing Costs.  At Closing, each party shall pay the fees and expenses of its legal counsel incurred in connection with this transaction. Escrow Agent’s fees for serving as escrow agent shall be paid solely by Buyer.

Section 5.5        Prorations.  Any collections received by Seller or, its servicer, with respect to the Loan which pursuant to the Loan Documents are payable to Seller or its servicer prior to the Closing Date shall be retained by Seller. Buyer shall be entitled to any such collections received with respect to the Loan on or after the Closing Date. Any and all payments received by a party from or on behalf of any Obligor which belong to the other party shall be held in trust by such receiving party for the benefit of the other party and shall be delivered to such other party within five (5) Business Days after the receipt thereof.

Section 5.6        Insurance; Casualty Prior to Closing.  On the Closing Date, Seller shall have the right to terminate any insurance policies maintained by Seller, if any, with respect to the Collateral. Buyer is responsible for obtaining any insurance it desires to have in effect with respect to the Collateral. Buyer is also responsible for having itself added and/or substituted as loss payee, additional insured, mortgagee or otherwise on any insurance policy relating to the Collateral. In the event of the occurrence of any casualty to any of the Collateral prior to the Closing Date, Buyer shall nonetheless remain obligated to purchase the Loan in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and without reduction of the Purchase Price and any other amounts payable by Buyer hereunder.

Section 5.7        Financing Statements.  Effective upon the Closing, Seller authorizes Buyer to prepare and file and/or record, as applicable, assignments of any Uniform Commercial Code financing statements that may be of record with regard to the personal property security interests set forth in the Loan Documents or in any security agreement which is part of the Loan Documents.

Section 5.8        Pending Proceedings.  Each of Buyer and Seller acknowledge the existence of the Pending Proceedings and Buyer hereby represents and warrants that Buyer has elected to enter into this Agreement notwithstanding the existence of the Pending Proceedings. Buyer shall notify Seller in writing, prior to the Closing Date, of the name of the attorney selected by Buyer to represent Buyer’s interest in the Pending Proceedings. On the Closing Date, Buyer shall assume full and exclusive responsibility for the conduct of the Pending Proceedings and any and all liability resulting therefrom.

 

-12-


Buyer shall, immediately after the Closing Date, notify the Clerk of the Court and all counsel of record that the Loan and all Loan Documents were assigned by Seller to Buyer. Buyer shall have Buyer’s attorney file appropriate pleadings with the Court immediately after the Closing Date, substituting Buyer’s attorney for Seller’s attorney and also removing Seller as a party to the Pending Proceedings and substituting Buyer as the real party in interest, all pursuant to forms and filings as prescribed by the rules of the applicable Court. Copies of all such notices and pleadings will be provided by Buyer to Seller and Seller’s attorney promptly upon the sending or filing thereof. Seller and Seller’s attorney shall, at Buyer’s expense, cooperate in good faith with Buyer and Buyer’s attorney in the preparation and filing of all necessary pleadings and forms and shall provide any documents, signatures or other authorizations reasonably necessary to effect substitution of Buyer’s attorney for Seller’s attorney in the Pending Proceedings. Seller further agrees, at Buyer’s cost and expense and without the necessity of legal process, to take all reasonable steps to make available to Buyer documents and information (subject to the provisions of Section 5.3(b), and to the extent both are currently within the possession, custody and control of Seller) and witnesses (subject to the provisions of Section 7.18, and to the extent within Seller’s control) that are necessary and desirable to Buyer for the prosecution and/or defense of the Pending Proceedings.

Section 5.9        Reservation of Claims.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, the purchase and sale of the Loan Rights and Obligations shall not include any claims and/or causes of action Seller had, has or may have against any officer, director, employee, insider, accountant, attorney, appraiser, underwriter, broker or other person or entity employed or retained by Seller or any prior owner of the Loan with respect to events occurring prior to the Closing Date. The forgoing is not intended as a limitation on Buyer’s rights to enforce the Loan in accordance with its terms and to realize the benefits of any lien, mortgage or any other security therefor.

Section 5.10        Release of Seller.  In the event that Buyer obtains any release from an Obligor with respect to the Loan or Loan Documents, Buyer shall be obligated to obtain from such Obligor an unconditional release for Seller, the other Released Parties and their respective predecessors with respect to all acts, events and omissions occurring prior to the date of such release. If Buyer fails to obtain such a release, Buyer agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold each Released Party harmless from any loss, cost expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) or damage which such Released Party suffers that could have been prevented had Buyer obtained such release.

Section 5.11        Tax Reporting.  On the Closing Date, Seller shall be relieved of, and Buyer shall assume all responsibility for, any tax reporting required with respect to the Loan, including, without limitation, any reporting which may be required with respect to debt forgiveness.

Section 5.12        Acknowledgment Regarding Escrow Amounts.  Buyer and Seller expressly acknowledge and agree that Seller shall assign all of its right, title and interest in and to the Escrow Amounts to Buyer at Closing, and Buyer shall assume all of Seller’s obligations (whenever arising) with respect to the Escrow Amounts. From and after the Closing Date, Buyer shall be responsible for all Escrow Amounts required to be maintained pursuant to the Loan Documents (if any).

Section 5.13        Survival.  The provisions of Section 5.3, Section 5.4 and Sections 5.7 through 5.12 above shall survive the Closing.

ARTICLE 6

REMEDIES FOR BREACH

Section 6.1        Seller’s Breach.  If Seller fails to perform its obligations hereunder to assign and transfer the Loan Rights and Obligations to Buyer on the Closing Date and all of Seller’s Conditions

 

-13-


Precedent have been satisfied, Buyer shall be entitled, as its sole and exclusive remedy, either to: (i) terminate this Agreement and receive the Deposit (in which event this Agreement shall be of no further force or effect except for any obligations which by their express terms survive the termination of this Agreement); or (ii) proceed against Seller by bringing an action, not later than thirty (30) days after the Closing Date, for specific performance hereunder without any right to seek damages of any kind or nature.

Section 6.2        Buyer’s Breach.  If Buyer fails to perform its obligations hereunder to purchase and assume the Loan Rights and Obligations from Seller on the Closing Date and all of Buyer’s Conditions Precedent have been satisfied or Buyer is otherwise in material default of its obligations, representations or warranties hereunder, Seller’s sole and exclusive remedy at law or in equity shall be to terminate this Agreement (in which event this Agreement shall be of no further force or effect except for any obligations which by their express terms survive the termination of this Agreement) and to retain the Deposit as liquidated damages.

Section 6.3        Liquidated Damages.  IN THE EVENT THAT BUYER BREACHES ITS OBLIGATIONS AS MORE PARTICULARLY DESCRIBED IN SECTION 6.2, BUYER AND SELLER AGREE THAT IT WOULD BE IMPRACTICAL AND EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO ESTIMATE THE DAMAGES WHICH SELLER MAY SUFFER AS A RESULT THEREOF. THEREFORE, BUYER AND SELLER AGREE THAT THE DEPOSIT IS A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF THE TOTAL NET DETRIMENT THAT SELLER WOULD SUFFER IN SUCH EVENT, AND SELLER IS ENTITLED TO THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE DEPOSIT AS THE SELLER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY (WHETHER AT LAW OR IN EQUITY), AND AS THE FULL, AGREED AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR SUCH BREACH. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE PAYMENT OF THE DEPOSIT TO SELLER IS NOT INTENDED AS A FORFEITURE OR PENALTY, BUT IS INTENDED TO CONSTITUTE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES AS REASONABLE COMPENSATION TO THE SELLER.

The provisions of this Section 7.1 shall survive the Closing.

Section 7.2        Severability.    Each part of this Agreement is intended to be severable. If any term, covenant, condition or provision hereof is unlawful, invalid, or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever, and such illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability does not affect the remaining parts of this Agreement, then all such remaining parts hereof shall be valid and enforceable and have full force and effect as if the invalid or unenforceable part had not been included.

Section 7.3        Rights Cumulative; Waivers.    The rights of each of the parties under this Agreement are cumulative and may be exercised as often as any party considers appropriate. The right of each of the parties hereunder shall not be waived or varied other than by an express waiver or variation in writing. Any failure to exercise or any delay in exercising any of such rights shall not operate as a waiver or variation of that or any other such right. Any defective or partial exercise of any of such rights shall not preclude any other or further exercise of that or any other such right. No act or course of conduct or negotiation on the part of any party shall in any way preclude such party from exercising any such right or constitute suspension or any variation of any such right.

Section 7.6        Assignments; Third Party Beneficiaries.  This Agreement may not be assigned by Buyer without the prior written consent of Seller, which consent Seller may grant or withhold in its sole and absolute discretion; provided, however, that no such assignment shall relieve Buyer from any of its obligations hereunder or delay the Closing of this transaction. Any attempted assignment by Buyer without the prior written consent of Seller shall be voidable by Seller; provided, however, upon not less than ten (10) Business Days prior written notice to Seller, Buyer may designate an affiliate of Buyer to take title to and assume the Loan Rights and Obligations, provided Buyer has provided all information

 

-16-


with respect to such affiliate requested by Seller to perform Seller’s due diligence and Seller’s diligence regarding such affiliate has not revealed any information regarding such affiliate or its principals, officers, directors, or direct or indirect owners that would make it undesirable, in Seller’s sole determination, for Seller to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, which affiliate shall execute the applicable Closing Documents and be deemed to have made each and every representation and warranty of Buyer in this Agreement as to itself, and which affiliate shall be deemed to be bound by and shall perform all of the obligations of Buyer under this Agreement, on a joint and several basis. Buyer initially designates 1180 Raymond Urban Renewal LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as its designee to take title to and assume the Loan Rights and Obligations pursuant to this Section 7.6. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement and the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions, obligations, undertakings, rights and benefits hereof, including the Exhibits hereto, shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of, the undersigned parties and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, representatives, successors, and assigns. Except for those provisions benefitting the Released Parties, nothing expressed or mentioned in this Agreement is intended or will be construed to give any other Person any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or in respect of this Agreement, or any provisions herein contained, this Agreement and all conditions and provisions hereof being intended to be and being for the sole and exclusive benefit of Seller and Buyer and for the benefit of no other Person.

Section 7.9        Counterparts.    This Agreement may be executed in .pdf format and delivered by email and in any number of counterparts, each of which shall constitute one and the same instrument, and either party hereto may execute this Agreement by signing any such counterpart.

Section 7.10      Survival.    Except as and to the extent expressly provided otherwise in this Agreement, terms, conditions, and provisions of this Agreement, and any representations and/or warranties contained in this Agreement, shall not survive the Closing and shall instead merge into the Closing Documents.

Section 7.11      Governing Law; Venue; Waiver of Jury Trial.

      (a)        THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK INCLUDING SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAWS WITHOUT REGARD TO PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW.

      (b)        THE PARTIES HERETO AGREE TO SUBMIT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT AND, IN FURTHERANCE OF SUCH AGREEMENT, THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE AND CONSENT THAT, WITHOUT LIMITING OTHER METHODS OF OBTAINING JURISDICTION, PERSONAL JURISDICTION OVER THE PARTIES IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE OBTAINED WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT LOCATED IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK, AND THAT ANY PROCESS OR

 

-17-


NOTICE OF MOTION OR OTHER APPLICATION TO ANY SUCH COURT IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE SERVED UPON THE PARTIES BY REGISTERED OR CERTIFIED MAIL TO OR BY PERSONAL SERVICE AT THE LAST KNOWN ADDRESS OF THE PARTIES, WHETHER SUCH ADDRESS BE WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE JURISDICTION OF ANY SUCH COURT. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHTS THAT IT MAY HAVE TO MAKE ANY OBJECTIONS BASED ON JURISDICTION OR VENUE TO ANY ACTION BROUGHT TO ENFORCE THIS AGREEMENT IN ANY SUCH COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ABOVE PROVISIONS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 7.11 SHALL SURVIVE THE CLOSING.

Section 7.12      Publicity; Litigation; Confidentiality.    In no event shall Buyer (a) issue any press release, publicity, advertising, promotion, or otherwise announce or disclose or cause or permit to be announced or disclosed in any manner whatsoever this Agreement or the transaction contemplated hereby or otherwise disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement, (b) institute or continue any legal action in the name of Seller or any other Released Party, (c) intentionally or unintentionally, through misrepresentation or nondisclosure, conceal or mislead any person as to Buyer’s identity, or (d) use or refer to Seller’s or any other Released Party’s name or any name derived from Seller’s or any other Released Party’s name to promote the sale or transfer of the Loan or the collection or management of the Loan (provided that in descriptions of the Loan, Buyer may refer to the Loan as having been previously held by Seller and that Buyer is Seller’s successor-in-interest to the Loan), in each case without the prior written consent of Seller, which consent may be granted or withheld in Seller’s sole discretion. Furthermore, Buyer agrees to keep all aspects of the transaction contemplated by this Agreement and all materials and information provided to Buyer in connection with the transaction contemplated hereby (including, without limitation, this Agreement, the Loan Documents, the Pending Proceedings and the Loan File, other than information that is or becomes publicly-available through no action of Buyer or any agent of Buyer (collectively, “Confidential Information”)), strictly confidential and not disclose the same to any persons; provided, however, that nothing herein shall be deemed to limit or impair in any way Buyer’s ability to disclose the details of the transaction contemplated hereby to its legal and financial advisors, investors, partners, or lenders or as may be necessary pursuant to any court or governmental order or applicable law, including any REIT or SEC filing, disclosure or reporting requirements, or in litigation, including the Pending Proceedings; provided, further, that Buyer shall inform such parties of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and shall be responsible for a breach of this Agreement caused by such parties; and provided, further, that subsequent to Closing Buyer shall not be obligated to treat as confidential the Loan Documents, the Loan File and materials derived therefrom. In the event that Buyer or such parties become legally compelled to disclose all or any part of such Confidential Information under a subpoena or inquiry issued by a court of competent jurisdiction or by a judicial or administrative agency, Buyer shall immediately provide Seller with prompt notice so that Seller may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the provisions of this Section and shall consult with Seller on the advisability of taking legally available steps to resist or narrow such request and cooperate with the Seller on any steps it considers advisable. In the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, or that Seller waives compliance with the provisions of this Section, Buyer will furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information which is legally required and will exercise best efforts to obtain an order, stipulation or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded such portion of the Confidential Information to be disclosed. This Section shall be supplemental to and not in derogation of the provisions of any prior written agreement concerning confidentiality entered into by Buyer or its Affiliates, including, without limitation, the Confidentiality Agreement (and specifically including, without limitation, the prohibition thereunder against Buyer’s contacting any Obligor under the Loan or any ground lessor, tenant, subtenant, property manager, or anyone else at, or involved with, the Property). The rights and obligations of the parties hereto under the provisions of this Section 7.12 shall survive any Closing or termination of this Agreement.

 

-18-


Section 7.13        Brokers.    Each party to this Agreement represents and warrants to the other that, in connection with the sale and purchase of the Loan, the party so representing and warranting has not dealt with any real estate broker, agent or finder, other than the broker engaged by Seller, Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. (“Broker”). Buyer and Seller shall indemnify and hold each other harmless against and from any and all actual out-of-pocket losses, actual damages (expressly excluding special, consequential, punitive and exemplary damages), costs and expenses (including, without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising as a result of any breach of the foregoing representation and warranty. Any commission or other fee owed or payable to Broker shall be the sole responsibility and obligation of Seller. The rights, obligations, warranties and representations of the parties hereto under the provisions of this Section 7.13 survive any closing or termination of this Agreement.

Section 7.14      Effectiveness of the Agreement.  This Agreement shall not be deemed a contract binding upon Seller unless and until Seller shall have executed this Agreement and Buyer shall have delivered the Deposit into Escrow in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Section 7.15      Further Assurances.  From and after the date of this Agreement, each party shall execute and deliver such other documents and items, and take such other actions, as may be reasonably requested by the other party or Escrow Agent to allow the completion and consummation (or termination, as appropriate) of all tasks and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The provisions of this Section 7.15 shall survive the Closing.

Section 7.16      Time of Essence.  All parties hereto agree that time is of the essence with respect to this Agreement.

Section 7.17      Escrow Provisions.  Upon the execution of this Agreement by Buyer and Seller, and the acceptance of this Agreement by Escrow Agent in writing, this Agreement shall constitute the joint escrow instructions of Buyer and Seller to Escrow Agent to open the Escrow for the consummation of the transaction contemplated hereby pursuant to this Agreement. Upon Escrow Agent’s receipt of the Deposit and Escrow Agent’s written acceptance of this Agreement, Escrow Agent is authorized and agrees to act in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Buyer and Seller shall promptly execute general escrow instructions based upon this Agreement at the request of Escrow Agent; provided, however, that if there is any conflict or inconsistency between such general escrow instructions and this Agreement, this Agreement shall control. At Closing, Escrow Agent shall pay any sum owed to Seller with immediately available United States federal funds. Upon receipt of a written demand from the Seller or Buyer pursuant to this Agreement (a “Demand”), Escrow Agent shall send a copy of such Demand to the other party. If, within five (5) Business Days after receipt thereof, such other party has not notified Escrow Agent of an objection to the disbursement of the Deposit as indicated in such Demand (a “Notice of Objection”), Escrow Agent shall comply with the instructions of such Demand. Each party agrees not to deliver a Notice of Objection without having a good faith reason for doing so. After receiving a Notice of Objection, Escrow Agent shall send a copy of such Notice of Objection to the party who made the Demand, and thereafter, in its reasonable discretion, the Escrow Agent may in the event of conflicting instructions as to the disposition of the Deposit elect either (i) to continue to hold the Deposit until the Escrow Agent receives a written agreement of Buyer and Seller (or an order of a court of competent jurisdiction) directing the disbursement of the Deposit, in which event the Escrow Agent shall disburse the Deposit in accordance with such agreement or order, or (ii) interplead the Deposit into any court of competent jurisdiction in connection with an action of interpleader or any other proceeding (including any court in which litigation between Seller and Buyer is then pending). Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted in good faith and believed by it to be authorized or within the rights or powers conferred upon it by this Agreement and it may rely, and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting in reliance, upon an opinion of counsel and upon any directions, instructions, notice, certificate, instrument, request, paper or other documents believed by it to be genuine and to have been made, sent,
