Item 1.01.  Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously disclosed, on April 28, 2017, the special committee of the board of directors of MVP REIT, Inc., a Maryland corporation (the "Company" or "MVP I"), accepted a non-binding Letter of Intent from the special committee of the board of directors of MVP REIT II, Inc., a Maryland corporation ("MVP II"), setting forth the terms and conditions upon which MVP II proposed to acquire the Company and its subsidiaries.

On May 26, 2017, the Company, MVP II, MVP Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of MVP II ("Merger Sub"), and MVP Realty Advisors, LLC, the Company's and MVP II's external advisor (the "Advisor"), entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Merger Agreement"). Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, the Company will merge with and into Merger Sub (the "Merger"), with Merger Sub surviving the Merger (the "Surviving Entity"), such that following the Merger, the Surviving Entity will continue as a wholly owned subsidiary of MVP II. The Merger is intended to qualify as a "reorganization" under, and within the meaning of, Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each outstanding share of the Company's common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the "Company Common Stock"), will be automatically cancelled and retired, and converted into the right to receive 0.365 shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share, of MVP II ("MVP II Common Stock") (such ratio, as it may be adjusted pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the "Exchange Ratio"). Holders of shares of Company Common Stock will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares.

Each share of Company Common Stock, if any, then held by any wholly owned subsidiary of the Company or by MVP II or any of its wholly owned subsidiaries will no longer be outstanding and will automatically be retired and will cease to exist, and no consideration will be paid, nor will any other payment or right inure or be made with respect to such shares of Company Common Stock in connection with or as a consequence of the Merger.  In addition, each share of the Company's Non-Participating, Non-Voting Convertible Stock, $0.001 par value per share ("Company Convertible Stock"), all 1,000 of which are held by the Advisor, will automatically be retired and will cease to exist, and no consideration will be paid, nor will any other payment or right inure or be made with respect to such shares of Company Convertible Stock in connection with or as a consequence of the Merger.

The Merger Agreement contains customary covenants, including covenants prohibiting the Company and its subsidiaries and representatives from soliciting, providing information or entering into discussions concerning proposals relating to alternative business combination transactions, subject to certain limited exceptions. However, under the terms of the Merger Agreement, during the period beginning on the date of the Merger Agreement and continuing until 11:59 p.m. New York City time on July 10, 2017 (the "Go Shop Period End Time"), the Company (through the Company special committee and its representatives) may initiate, solicit, provide information and enter into discussions concerning proposals relating to alternative business combination transactions. For up to five business days after the Go Shop Period End Time, the Company may continue to participate in such discussions with a Go Shop Bidder (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and may, subject to certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement regarding the proposal made by such Go Shop Bidder, terminate the Merger Agreement and enter into an agreement with a Go Shop Bidder with respect to the proposal made by such Go Shop Bidder. The Merger Agreement also provides that, at any time beginning on the sixth business day after the Go Shop Period End Time and prior to the approval by the Company's stockholders of the Merger and the Charter Amendment (described below) (such approvals, the "Stockholder Approvals"), the board of directors of the Company may, in certain circumstances, make an Adverse Recommendation Change (as such term is defined in the Merger Agreement), subject to complying with certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the board of directors of MVP II (the "MVP II Board") will, effective as of the effective time of the Merger, increase the number of directors comprising the MVP II Board to eight and Nicholas Nilsen, Robert J. Aalberts and Shawn Nelson will be elected to the MVP II Board.

The Merger Agreement may be terminated under certain circumstances, including, but not limited to, by either the Company or MVP II (in each case, through their respective special committees) if the Merger has not been consummated on or before December 31, 2017, if a final and non-appealable order is entered permanently restraining or otherwise prohibiting the Merger, if the Stockholder Approvals have not been obtained or upon a material uncured breach by the other party that would cause the closing conditions in the Merger Agreement not to be satisfied. In addition, the Company may terminate the Merger Agreement (i) if the Company has properly accepted a "Superior Proposal" (as defined in the Merger Agreement) from a Go Shop Bidder within five business days of the Go Shop Period End Time pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement or (ii) if the Company has properly accepted a "Superior Proposal" from a Go Shop Bidder at any time beginning on the sixth business day after the Go Shop Period End Time and prior to receipt of the Stockholder Approvals pursuant to the terms of the Merger

Agreement. MVP II may terminate the Merger Agreement at any time following the date that is five business days after the Go Shop Period End Time and prior to the receipt of the Stockholder Approvals upon (i) an Adverse Recommendation Change, (ii) the Company's board of directors approving, adopting or publicly endorsing an Acquisition Proposal (as such term is defined in the Merger Agreement), (iii) the failure of the Company's board of directors to recommend against acceptance of any tender offer for shares of the Company Common Stock that constitutes an Acquisition Proposal, (iv) the failure of the Company's board of directors to include its recommendation in favor of the Merger and the Charter Amendment in the proxy statement to be distributed to the Company's stockholders or (v) the Company's material violation of the provisions of the Merger Agreement concerning solicitation of transactions.
If the Merger Agreement is terminated in connection with the Company's acceptance of a Superior Proposal, approval of an Acquisition Proposal or making an Adverse Recommendation Change at any time beginning on the sixth business day after the Go Shop Period End Time, then the Company must pay to MVP II a termination fee of $1,500,000 plus an expense reimbursement fee of up to $500,000. If the Merger Agreement is terminated in connection with the Company's acceptance of a Superior Proposal within five business days of the Go Shop Period End Time, then the Company must pay to MVP II a termination fee of $750,000 plus an expense reimbursement fee of up to $500,000.

The Merger Agreement contains certain representations and warranties made by the parties thereto. The representations and warranties of the parties contained in the Merger Agreement and are subject to certain important qualifications and limitations set forth in confidential disclosure letters delivered by each of the Company and MVP II.  Moreover, the representations and warranties are subject to a contractual standard of materiality that may be different from what may be viewed as material to stockholders.

The obligation of each party to consummate the Merger is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of the Stockholder Approvals, receipt of regulatory approvals, delivery of certain documents and consents, the truth and correctness of the representations and warranties of the parties, subject to the materiality standards contained in the Merger Agreement, the effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-4 to be filed by MVP II to register the shares of MVP II Common Stock to be issued as consideration in the Merger and the absence of a material adverse effect with respect to either the Company or MVP II.

In connection with the Merger, the Company intends to seek the approval of its stockholders of an amendment to the Company's charter to remove certain provisions regarding roll-up transactions (such amendment, the "Charter Amendment"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, approval by the Company's stockholders of the Charter Amendment is a condition to completing the Merger.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement is only a summary, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 1.02.  Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

Concurrently with the entry into the Merger Agreement, the Company, the Advisor, MVP II and MVP REIT II Operating Partnership, LP entered into a termination and fee agreement (the "Termination Agreement"). Pursuant to the Termination Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, the Advisory Agreement, dated September 25, 2012, as amended, among the Company and the Advisor will be terminated and MVP II will pay the Advisor an Advisor Acquisition Payment (as such term is defined in the Termination Agreement) of approximately $3.6 million, subject to adjustment in the event that additional properties are acquired by the Company prior to closing, which shall be the only fee payable to the Advisor in connection with the Merger.  In the event that the Merger Agreement is terminated prior to the consummation of the Merger, the Termination Agreement will automatically terminate and be of no further effect and no Advisor Acquisition Payment will be owed or payable.

The foregoing description of the Termination Agreement is only a summary, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Termination Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.



Item 5.03.  Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On May 26, 2017, the board of directors of the Company approved an amendment and restatement of the Company's bylaws (the "Bylaws" and as amended and restated, the "Amended Bylaws") effective immediately. The Amended Bylaws include a new Article XIII that provides that, unless the Company agrees otherwise, derivative claims, breach of director, officer or employee duty claims, claims pursuant to the Maryland General Corporation Law, the Company's charter or Bylaws and claims governed by the internal affairs doctrine must be brought in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Maryland (or, if that court does not have jurisdiction, the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division). The foregoing summary of the changes effected by the Amended Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
