Except to the extent that the Issuer has elected to exercise its optional redemption right or its special optional redemption right by providing notice of redemption prior to the Change of Control Conversion Date, beginning on the first anniversary of the first date on which any shares of Series A Preferred Stock are issued, upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to convert some or all of the Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder on the Change of Control Conversion Date into a number of the Issuer’s shares of common stock per share of Series A Preferred Stock to be converted equal to the lesser of:

 

•   the quotient obtained by dividing (i) the sum of the $25.00 liquidation preference plus the amount of any accrued and unpaid dividends (whether or not declared) to, but not including, the Change of Control Conversion Date (unless the Change of Control Conversion Date is after a record date for a Series A Preferred Stock dividend payment and prior to the corresponding Series A Preferred Stock dividend payment date, in which case no additional amount for such accrued and unpaid dividend will be included in this sum) by (ii) the Common Stock Price; and

 

•   3.2982 (the Share Cap), subject to certain adjustments

 

subject, in each case, to provisions for the receipt of alternative consideration upon conversion as described in the preliminary prospectus.

 

If the Issuer has provided or provides a redemption notice with respect to some or all of the Series A Preferred Stock, holders of any Series A Preferred Stock that the Issuer has called for redemption will not be permitted to exercise their Change of Control Conversion Right in respect of any of their shares of Series A Preferred Stock that have been called for redemption, and any Series A Preferred Stock subsequently called for redemption that has been tendered for conversion will be redeemed on the applicable date of redemption instead of converted on the Change of Control Conversion Date.

 

Except as provided above in connection with a Change of Control, the Series A Preferred Stock is not convertible into or exchangeable for any other securities or property.

 

A “Change of Control” will be deemed to have occurred at such time after the original issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock when the following have occurred and are continuing:

 

•   the acquisition by any person, including any syndicate or group deemed to be a “person” under Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act, other than a Permitted Holder, of beneficial ownership, directly or indirectly, through a purchase, merger or other acquisition transaction or series of purchases, mergers or other acquisition transactions of shares of the Issuer entitling that person to exercise more than 50% of the total voting power of all shares of the Issuer entitled to vote generally in elections of directors (except that such person will be deemed to have beneficial ownership of all securities that such person has the right to acquire, whether such right is currently exercisable or is exercisable only upon the occurrence of a subsequent condition); and


 

•   following the closing of any transaction referred to in the bullet point above, neither the Issuer nor the acquiring or surviving entity has a class of common securities (or ADRs representing such securities) listed on the NYSE, the NYSE American LLC or NASDAQ, or listed or quoted on an exchange or quotation system that is a successor to the NYSE, the NYSE American LLC or NASDAQ.

 

•   For purposes of the definition of Change of Control, a Permitted Holder includes NexPoint Real Estate Advisors VII, L.P. and its affiliates.

 

The “Common Stock Price” will be: (i) the amount of cash consideration per share of the Issuer’s common stock, if the consideration to be received in the Change of Control by the holders of shares of the Issuer’s common stock is solely cash; and (ii) the average of the closing prices for shares of the Issuer’s common stock on the NYSE for the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding, but not including, the effective date of the Change of Control, if the consideration to be received in the Change of Control by the holders of shares of the Issuer’s common stock is other than solely cash.

 

The “Change of Control Conversion Date” will be a business day that is no fewer than 20 days nor more than 35 days after the date on which the Issuer provides the required notice of the occurrence of a Change of Control.
