6.            Management of Property.

 

6.1     Joint Decisions. The Property shall be managed by the Trustee; however, Beneficiary shall approve, and such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, all major decisions with respect to the long-term management, operation and control of the Beneficiary’s interests in the Property, such as:

 

(a)     Financing or refinancing of the Property;

7.            Partition and Receiver.

 

7.1     No Co-Owner has the right to (i) partition any portion of the Property, (ii) make application to any court or authority for a partition of the Property or for the appointment of a receiver for the Property (iii) commence or prosecute any action or proceeding for a portion of the Property or for the appointment of a receiver for the Property.

 

8.      Transfer of Interest in the Property.

 

8.1     Trustee’s Right to Purchase Coolisys’ Property Interest. As a material consideration of Coolisys entering into this Agreement is Kohn’s continued employment, Trustee shall have the right to purchase Coolisys’ Property Interest subject to certain vesting rights as follows:

 

(i)     effective October 1, 2017, for each completed calendar month of employment of Kohn by Coolisys, Trustee shall have the right to purchase a twenty three and one-third one-thousandths (0.002333) interest of Coolisys’ Property Interest for $1.00. By way of example only, assuming that Kohn is employed by Coolisys for 120 calendar months, Trustee shall have the right to purchase 100% of the Coolisys Property Interest for $120.00. However, such right shall be accelerated to 60 months if Kohn is continuously employed as an officer of the Company.

 

8.2     Coolisys’ Right to Require Trustee to Purchase Unvested Coolisys’ Property Interest. In the event that Kohn is not employed by Coolisys, within 30 days of notice of non-employment issued by Coolisys, Coolisys shall have the right to demand that Trustee purchase Coolisys’ remaining Property Interest that was not subject to vesting (the Unvested Property Interest) for the fair value market value of such Unvested Property Interest in United States dollars. Trustee and Coolisys will mutally engage a third party appraiser to determine the “fair market value” of the Property. Such purchase of Coolisys’ Unvested Property Interest must be completed within 120 days of the notice of non-employment. Alternativley, to eliminate the cost and time of an appraisal, if Trustee and Coolisys can agree upon a value of the Unvested Property Interest and such value is between 90% and 110% of the Unvested Property Interest the parties can elect to value the Property by mutual agreement. By way of example only, assuming that Kohn is employed by Coolisys for 30 calendar months, Trustee would have the right to purchase 25% of the 28% Coolisys Propertly Interest for $30.00 (30 months x 0.002333 = 7%). Further, if the agreed upon value of the Unvested Property Interest is between 90% and 110% of $225,000 (75% x $300,000), the parties can elect to value the Property by mutual agreement. Coolisys shall have the right to demand the sale of the Property if the purchase of Coolisys Unvested Property Interest is not completed within 120 days of the notice of non-employment. Trustee shall be granted a 60 day extension provided Trustee can demonstrate she is working in good faith to complete the purchase of the Coolisys Unvested Property Interest.

8.3     No Right to Sell Kohn Property Interest. Subject to Section 8.4, Trustee shall have no right to sell the Kohn Property Interest.

 

8.4     Effective Time of Rights. The rights under Section 8.1 or 8.2 shall become effective, and the prohibition under Section 8.3 shall terminate, upon the earlier of (i) ten years (ii) Kohn is no longer employed by Coolisys or its affilates and (iii) exceleration of vesting.

 

8.5     Right of Offset. Any amounts due under Trustee’s obligation to purchase Coolisys’ Property Interest under Section 8.2 shall be offset against any amounts due by Coolisys or its affilates to Kohn pursuant to his employment or similar agreement.

 

8.6     Coolisys undertakes not to sell, lease, sublease, transfer, grant, encumber, change or otherwise effect any other disposition in or in respect to Coolisys’ Property Interest.

 

8.7     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Coolisys will bear all costs and expenses, including without limitation all taxes, CPI linkage differentials and penalty interest, if and to the extent such are levied on Coolisys, Trustee and/or Kohn, in connection with or resulting from the Trust Agreement and/or any transfer of interest in the property to Trustee or Kohn pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

 

9.            Damage or Destruction

 

9.1     Insurance Available. If the Property suffers any damage or destruction that is covered by an insurance policy obtained by the Co-Owners, the Co-Owners agree to use any such proceeds from such insurance policy to repair or replace the Property or, if required by the lender, to pay down or repay the Mortgage. If any insurance proceeds remain after application as provided in the previous sentence, the excess insurance proceeds shall be retained by the Co-Owners in the operating account for the Property.

 

9.2     No Insurance Available. If the Property suffers any damage or destruction that is not covered by an insurance policy obtained by the Co-Owners, the Co-Owners agree to meet and confer relative to funding any repair or replacement costs needed to repair or replace the damaged or destroyed Property.
