a)ERCHB2 will incur direct and indirect capitalized costs and overhead expenses. Direct capitalized costs and overhead expenses will be paid by ERCHB2 directly, but indirect capital costs and overhead expenses will be paid by Manager and then reimbursed by ERCHB2, as follows:


i.Capitalized costs that are exclusive to ERCHB2 and paid by Manager will be reimbursed in full by ERCHB2. Such costs would include architectural, engineering, land, zoning and other costs directly related to assets belonging to ERCHB2.


ii.Capitalized costs that are to be shared amongst ERCHB2 and other active subsidiaries managed by Manager will be reimbursed pro-rata based upon the number of active subsidiaries (an active subsidiary is defined as one that has received SEC Qualification for its Reg A Plus offering and has commenced fundraising. Thereafter it is considered active). Manager reserves the right to defer the collection of reimbursements from ERCHB2 and / or other subsidiaries, if it determines that such reimbursements should be shared amongst more or all of its planned subsidiaries. Such costs would include concept design common to all of Manager’s subsidiaries, intellectual properties, technology and other costs related to all of Manager’s subsidiaries and their assets.


b)Overhead expenses will be fully reimbursed pro-rata to Manager by those subsidiaries that are active at the time such expenses are incurred, based on the following levels:


i.“Level 1” will require expenses to be reimbursed pro-rata by the number of subsidiaries that are formed and actively procuring funds in their Reg A Plus offerings. While ERCHB2 is the sole subsidiary formed and procuring funds in its Reg A Plus offering (if and when SEC Qualified), it will be the sole entity reimbursing Manager. As future subsidiaries are formed and commence procuring funds under SEC Qualified Reg A Plus offerings, they will contribute to the reimbursement on an equal basis. As an example and further clarification, when there are two that are active and funding, they will share half each, and if or when there are three active and funding subsidiaries, they will share 1/3 each, and so on.


ii.“Level 2” will require that once subsidiaries commence developing locations, (developing locations is defined as the closing on the purchase of a piece of land by the respective Reg A Plus subsidiary) it will become the “location-count” that determines the sharing of overhead expense reimbursements. As an example, if there are two subsidiaries active, and one of those subsidiaries has two developing locations, then the overhead expense reimbursement will be shared 1/3rd by the subsidiary with one location, and the subsidiary having two locations reimbursing Manager 2/3rd’s. In this manner, overhead expense reimbursement will be shared equally by the number of developing locations.


c)Manager shall not charge ERCHB2 any “profit fees” or “management fees” in addition to the cost allocations above. Actual Manager expenses that are chargeable to ERCHB2 will be paid by ERCHB2 to Manager without markup. Loans made from Manager to ERCHB2 will be required to be repaid in full at a commercially reasonable rate.
