2.4 Purpose. The purpose and nature of the business to be conducted by the Partnership is (i) to conduct any business that may be lawfully conducted by a limited partnership organized pursuant to the Act; provided, however, that such business shall be limited to and conducted in such a manner as to permit the General Partner at all times to qualify as a REIT, and in a manner such that the General Partner will not be subject to any taxes under Section 857 or 4981 of the Code, unless the General Partner otherwise ceases to qualify as a REIT, (ii) to enter into any partnership, joint venture or other similar arrangement to engage in any of the foregoing or the ownership of interests in any entity engaged in any of the foregoing and (iii) to do anything necessary or incidental to the foregoing. In connection with the foregoing, and without limiting the General Partner’s right in its sole and absolute discretion to qualify or cease qualifying as a REIT, the Partners acknowledge that the General Partner intends to qualify as a



REIT for federal income tax purposes and upon such qualification, the avoidance of income and excise taxes on the General Partner inures to the benefit of all the Partners and not solely to the General Partner. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Limited Partner agrees that the General Partner may terminate its status as a REIT under the Code at any time to the full extent permitted under its Articles of Incorporation, as amended.

The General Partner shall make all additional contributions to the capital of the Partnership at such times and in such amounts as determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion. Except as expressly set forth herein, the Partners shall not be required to make any additional capital contributions and no capital contribution of any Partner shall bear interest or otherwise entitle the contributing Partner to a preferred return or compensation for the use of the contributed capital.

4. Management. The General Partner shall be the manager of the activities of the Partnership and shall have all power and authority as a general partner is able to have under the Act.

5. Distributions and Tax Allocations.

5.2.3 “Taxable income” and “taxable loss” shall mean the taxable income or taxable loss of the Partnership as determined for federal income tax purposes under Internal Revenue Code § 702(a)(8), modified by (i) including in the calculation thereof all items required to be separately stated



under Internal Revenue Code § 702(a)(1)-(7) or otherwise required to be separately stated (including without limitation income exempt from tax and items treated as nondeductible expenditures not properly chargeable to capital account), and (ii) excluding, notwithstanding clause i) of this sentence, any item of income, gain, deduction, loss or credit specially allocated under this Agreement other than as part of a special allocation of taxable-income or taxable loss generally. In the event that property of the Partnership properly is reflected on its books in accordance with Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b) at a value other than adjusted tax basis of such property for federal income tax purposes, then (i) “book” income, gain, deduction and loss with respect to such property, as determined in accordance with such Regulations, shall be allocated in the manner taxable income and taxable loss are allocated under this Agreement, and (ii) taxable income and taxable loss shall be allocated in the manner required by Section 704(c) of the Internal Revenue Code or the principles thereof as set forth in applicable Treasury Regulations.

6. Books, Records and Reports.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of a “liquidation” of the Partnership arising solely by reason of the application of Section 708(b)(1)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code upon the sale or exchange of an interest in Partnership capital or profits, no actual distribution of Property shall be required. However, capital accounts of the Partners shall be adjusted and the provisions of this Agreement applied as though the Property of the Partnership had been distributed in liquidation in accordance with this Agreement and recontributed by the Partners; and the Partnership shall continue thereafter for the remaining balance of the original term of the Partnership in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
