NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are acknowledged, the Parties to this Agreement, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:

1.Certification of Meeting Results.

As soon as practicable following the execution and delivery of this Agreement (but in no event later than five (5) days after the date of this Agreement) each of the Company and Cove will jointly request in writing (the “IOE Request”) that the Inspector of Elections rule on each of the challenges raised at the challenge session on December 19, 2017, issue a final report and certify the final tabulation of votes cast at the Meeting (the “Final Results”) with respect to each of the Proposed Charter Amendments, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A. The Final Results will be final and binding on each of the Company and Cove and shall not be subject to further review or contest (judicial or otherwise).

2.Standstill Provisions. Cove agrees that, from the date of this Agreement until the expiration of the Standstill Period, neither it nor any of its Affiliates or Associates shall, and it shall cause each of its Affiliates and Associates not to, directly or indirectly, in any manner:

(a)    engage in any solicitation of proxies or consents, become a “participant” in a “solicitation” (as such terms are defined in Regulation 14A under the Exchange Act) of proxies or consents (including, without limitation, any solicitation of consents that seeks to call a special meeting of stockholders) or otherwise communicate a position or recommendation in opposition to any proposal or proposals made by the Company and recommended by the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) at any annual or special meeting of the Company’s stockholders regarding the election of nominees to serve as directors of the Company, ratification of the Company’s independent accounting firm or auditor or any proposal or proposals to amend the Company’s Charter which are materially consistent (in whole or in part) with the Proposed Charter Amendments (each meeting a “Covered Meeting” and each proposal a “Covered Proposal”);

(b)    seek, or encourage any person or entity, to contest or vote against the election of any directors or seek, encourage or take any other action to contest any proposal or proposals to amend the Charter;

(c)    (i) make any proposal for consideration by stockholders at any Covered Meeting or (ii) call or seek to call a special meeting of stockholders of the Company;

(f)    institute any litigation against the Company, its directors, officers, advisors or other agents, make any “books and records” demands against the Company or make application or demand to a court or other person or entity for an inspection, investigation or examination of the Company or its subsidiaries or Affiliates; provided, however, that nothing shall prevent Cove from bringing litigation to enforce the provisions of this Agreement;

(g)    enter into or maintain any economic, compensatory, pecuniary or other arrangements with any director or nominees for director of the Company;

(h)    make any request or submit any proposal to amend the terms of this Agreement other than through non-public communications with the Company that would not be reasonably determined to trigger public disclosure obligations for any Party; or

(i)    enter into any negotiations, discussions, agreement, arrangement or understanding with any person or entity concerning any of the foregoing (other than this Agreement) or encourage or solicit any person or entity to undertake any of the foregoing activities.

For purposes of this Agreement, the terms (i) “Standstill Period” means, subject to Section 7, the period commencing on the date of this Agreement and ending on the date which is three (3) years after the date of this Agreement and (ii) “Affiliate” and “Associate” shall have the respective meanings set forth in Rule 12b-2 promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Exchange Act”), and shall include all persons or entities that at any time during the terms of this Agreement become Affiliates or Associates of any person or entity referred to in this Agreement.

3.Representations and Warranties of the Company. The Company represents and warrants to Cove that (a) the Company has the corporate power and authority to execute this Agreement and to bind it thereto, and (b) this Agreement has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company and constitutes a valid and binding obligation and agreement of the Company, and is enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement thereof may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance or similar laws generally affecting the rights of creditors and subject to general equity principles.

4.Representations and Warranties of Cove. Each person constituting Cove jointly and severally represents and warrants to the Company that (a) this Agreement has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered by Cove and constitutes a valid and binding obligation and agreement of Cove, enforceable against each person constituting Cove in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement thereof may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance or similar laws generally affecting the rights of creditors and subject to general equity principles, (b) each person constituting Cove has the full power and authority or capacity in the case of any natural person to execute this Agreement and to bind it thereto and (c) prior to the date hereof Cove has delivered to the Company true, complete and correct documents evidencing the out-of-pocket expenses it has incurred in connection with the Meeting, the challenges relating to the proxies delivered and the votes cast at the Meeting and the negotiation and execution of this Agreement.

5.Publicity. Neither the Company (including the Board and any committee thereof) nor Cove shall issue any press release or make any public announcement regarding this Agreement or the matters contemplated hereby including, without limitation, publication of the Final Results or any other matter relating to the Meeting without the prior written consent of the other Party; provided, however, nothing herein shall prohibit the Company from (i) filing with the SEC the Form 8-K in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B with the blanks completed based on the delivery and tabulation of the Final Results (and amending that form in response to any comments received from the SEC), (ii) filing a copy of the agreement with the SEC as required by the Exchange Act, (iii) making any other disclosures regarding the Agreement or the matters contemplated hereby in any SEC filing required under the Exchange Act or in any proxy statement relating to a Covered Meeting provided that the Company shall, to the extent reasonably practicable, give Cove a reasonable time to comment on the portion of such SEC filing or proxy statement that relates to this Agreement or the matters contemplated hereby, and (iv) issuing a press release the content of which is materially consistent with all or a portion of the Introductory Statement included in the Form 8-K referenced in clause (i) above. During the Standstill Period, neither the Company nor Cove shall make any public announcement or statement that is inconsistent with or contrary to the terms of this Agreement.

6.Specific Performance. Each person constituting Cove, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, acknowledges and agrees that irreparable injury to the other Party hereto would occur in the event any of the provisions of this Agreement was not performed in accordance with its specific terms or was otherwise breached and that such injury would not be adequately compensable by the remedies available at law (including the payment of money damages). It is accordingly agreed that Cove, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand (the “Moving Party”), shall each be entitled to seek specific enforcement of, and injunctive relief to prevent any violation (or threatened violation) of, the terms hereof, and the other Party hereto (a) will not take action, directly or indirectly, in opposition to the Moving Party seeking such relief on the grounds that any other remedy or relief is available at law or in equity, and (b) agrees to waive any applicable right or requirement that a bond be posted by the Moving Party. The prevailing party in any such action shall reimburse the non-prevailing party for all of its reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection therewith, in addition to any relief to which the prevailing party is entitled. This Section 6 is not the exclusive remedy for any violation of this Agreement, but will be in addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity.

7.Payment. The Company shall, within five (5) days after the execution and delivery of this Agreement, pay Cove Four Hundred and Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($425,000) for its time, effort and expense relating to the Company, the Meeting and the negotiation and execution of this Agreement and for its other promises and agreements included herein. Failure to make the foregoing payment within such time period will result in the immediate expiration of the Standstill Period; provided, however, that the Standstill Period will be reinstituted at such time as the Company makes such payment to Cove in full.

8.Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated. It is hereby stipulated and declared to be the intention of the Parties that the Parties would have executed the remaining terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions without including any of such which may be hereafter declared invalid, void or unenforceable. In addition, the Parties agree to use their reasonable best efforts to agree upon and substitute a valid and enforceable term, provision, covenant or restriction for any of such that is held invalid, void or enforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction.

9.Notices. Any notices, consents, determinations, waivers or other communications required or permitted to be given under the terms of this Agreement must be in writing and will be deemed to have been delivered: (a) upon receipt, when delivered personally; (b) upon confirmation of receipt, when sent by e-mail (provided such confirmation is not automatically generated); or (c) one (1) business day after deposit with a nationally recognized overnight delivery service, in each case properly addressed to the Party to receive the same.

Explanatory Note

This Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed by American Realty Capital New York City REIT, Inc. (the “Company”) as an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Current Report on Form 8-K that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 13, 2017 (as amended on September 29, the “Original Report”) to announce the preliminary results of the Company’s 2017 annual meeting of stockholders reconvened on September 7, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”). As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 2, 2017, stockholders duly elected all four nominees for the Company’s board of directors and ratified the appointment of KPMG as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm at the 2017 annual meeting convened on August 2, 2017. The Original Report disclosed that the vote at the Annual Meeting was contested, as well as the preliminary tabulation results received from the independent inspectors of election for the Annual Meeting who are employed by IVS Associates, Inc. (the “Election Inspectors”) with respect to Proposals 3 through 11 to amend certain provisions (the “Proposed Charter Amendments”), of the Company’s charter (the “Charter”) as described in greater detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement dated April 24, 2017, as amended or supplemented. This Amendment is being filed to disclose that the final report and certification of the final tabulation of votes cast at the Annual Meeting (the “Final Report”) was received by the Company from the Election Inspectors on [•], 2018, as well as the Company’s entry into a settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Cove Partners III LLC and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “Cove”) which contested the adoption of the Proposed Charter Amendments. The Company disagrees with certain decisions made in connection with tabulating the votes reflected in the Final Report. Nevertheless, the Company has concluded that resolving the contest and entering into the Settlement Agreement is in the Company’s best interest.

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On [●], 2018, the Company entered into the Settlement Agreement, pursuant to which the Company and Cove requested that the Election Inspectors issue the Final Report. The parties agreed that the Final Report would be final and binding and not be subject to further review or contest (judicial or otherwise).
 
Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, Cove has agreed to standstill restrictions from the date of the Settlement Agreement and for three years afterwards (the “Standstill Period”) prohibiting Cove from, among other things:

seeking, alone or in concert with others, representation on the Board;

instituting certain litigation against the Company;

making any proposal for consideration by stockholders at any Covered Meeting or call or seek to call a special meeting of stockholders of the Company; and

seeking to advise, support, influence or knowingly encourage any person or entity to vote his, her or its shares in opposition to any action recommended by the Board at any Covered Meeting.


Each of the parties to the Settlement Agreement are also be subject to customary mutual non-disparagement and non-disclosure obligations.

The Company agreed to pay Cove for its time, effort and expense relating to the Company, the Annual Meeting and the negotiation and execution of the Settlement Agreement and for its other promises and agreements included herein.
  
The foregoing description does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Settlement Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to a future filing by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
