AGREEMENT by and among T Bank N.A. (the “Bank”), and Tectonic Holdings, LLC, all its current and future wholly owned subsidiaries (the “Company”), dated as of this 5th day of February, 2018 and effective as of May 15, 2017 (the “Agreement”).

 

WHEREAS, it is in the intent of the Bank and the Company (each a “Party” and together the “Parties”) that each Party hereto pay, or provide reimbursement, as appropriate, for the operating expenses, fees, and costs which are allocable to such Party; and

 

WHEREAS, each Party hereto will act in good faith to perform its obligations hereunder.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein and other good and valuable consideration the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1. Each Party shall pay the expenses incurred in its operations and shall not be responsible for the payment of the expenses of the other Party.

 

2. For each service performed under this agreement, a separate lettered exhibit shall be attached hereto which describes the services to be performed and the agreed upon fee for such services. Such exhibit shall include the method of allocation when such services are of a general nature.

 

3. When third party goods or services are paid for by one Party, but another Party actually receives the benefit of such goods or services, then the Party requesting reimbursement for payment shall support such request with copies of actual invoices from the third party providing the goods or services or other documentary support that is mutually agreed upon by the Parties. To the extent such goods or services directly or indirectly benefit more than one Party, then the method of allocation shall be mutually agreed upon and attached as a lettered exhibit hereto.

 

4. Whenever this agreement calls for reimbursement from one Party to another for expenses paid to a third party, such reimbursement shall occur within 15 business days following a request for payment. With respect to expenses that are allocated monthly, the allocation shall be determined and reimbursement made within 15 business days following the end of each calendar month.

5. This agreement shall be (i) binding upon and insure to the benefit of any successor, whether by statutory merger, acquisition of assets or otherwise, to the Parties hereto, to the same extent as if the successor had been an original party to the agreement and (ii) governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas.

 

6. This agreement shall be in effect for a period ending December 31, 2019 and shall automatically renew thereafter for one year periods, unless 30 calendar days prior written consent (prior to the end of a calendar year) is provided by the terminating party. The earliest written notice can be provided is not less than 30 calendar days before December 31, 2019.

The hourly rate for each Bank Officer’s time will be billed at the rate of the Bank Officer’s current base salary as of the time of the invoice plus the Bank Officer’s prior year bonus, multiplied by 120% and divided by 2,080.
