Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On September 24, 2018, Landmark Infrastructure Operating Company LLC (“LMRK OpCo”), a Delaware limited liability company and a consolidated subsidiary of Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP (the “Partnership”), completed the formation of a joint venture (the “JV”) with BAM BSIP WarehouseCo LLC (“Brookfield”), a Delaware limited liability company. Pursuant to the terms of the JV’s limited liability company agreement (the “JV Agreement”), LMRK OpCo contributed 100% of its membership interest in LMRK Guarantor Co III LLC (“Guarantor Co”) to the JV, in exchange for a 50.01% membership interest in the JV and $65.5 million in cash (the “Transaction”). The JV may, among other things, acquire, own, construct, lease, manage, develop, operate and dispose of Portfolio Assets (as defined in the JV Agreement), which include, among other things, Guarantor Co’s current assets and its subsidiary’s rights as the lessor or landlord under any leases, subleases, licenses, or other occupancy agreements (as amended or modified) or arrangements pursuant to which third-party telecommunications, renewable energy or billboard operators or other entities that occupy or use any real property or personal property and all rights and options with respect thereto. The JV shall be managed by a board of directors comprised of two directors appointed by the Partnership and two directors appointed by Brookfield. Neither JV partner has committed to fund any additional capital to the JV and any future contribution to the JV is subject to the consent of both Brookfield and the Partnership.

 

The Partnership will primarily use the net proceeds from the Transaction to pay down indebtedness under its revolving credit facility. As a result of the Transaction, holders of the Partnership’s units may be allocated taxable income and gain in connection with the Transaction, regardless of whether there is any cash distributed to such holders. Prior to the Transaction, Guarantor Co was an indirect, consolidated subsidiary of the Partnership that owned certain assets related to the Partnership’s Secured Tenant Site Contract Revenue Notes, Series 2018-1. Following the Transaction, the Partnership expects the JV to be treated as an equity interest rather than a consolidated subsidiary, which will have the effect of eliminating the JV’s assets and liabilities from the Partnership’s consolidated balance sheet and eliminating the JV’s revenue and expenses from the Partnership’s income statement.  Instead, the Partnership’s consolidated balance sheet will show the value of its investment in the JV and its income statement will show the contribution to earnings from the JV.  For further information, see Item 9.01 below and the related exhibit 99.2.

 

The JV Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated by reference. The foregoing summary has been included to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the JV Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the JV Agreement. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Partnership, its subsidiaries or affiliates.

 

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

 

The disclosure required by this item and contained in Item 1.01 above in this Form 8-K is incorporated by reference.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

 

On September 24, 2018, the Partnership issued a press release announcing the formation of the JV. A copy of the press release, dated September 24, 2018 is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

This information presented herein under Item 7.01 and set forth in the attached press release included as Exhibit 99.1 to this report is deemed to be “furnished” solely pursuant to Item 7.01 of this report and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information or the exhibit be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act.

 


 

 

Item 8.01 Other Events

On June 26, 2018 and July 9, 2018, the Partnership waived its right of first offer (“ROFO”) on certain assets in investment funds managed by Landmark Dividend LLC (the “Sponsor”), as previously granted under the Partnership’s omnibus agreement. Certain investment funds managed by the Sponsor have agreed to sell approximately 580 assets that were subject to the ROFO to an independent third party (the “Third Party Sale”). Upon the final closing of the Third Party Sale, which is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2018, the Partnership is expected to have a ROFO on approximately 200 assets held by funds managed by the Sponsor.

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits

 

(b)    Pro forma financial information. In connection with the closing of the Transaction and the contribution of the assets to the JV described in Items 1.01 and 2.01 above, the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements of the Partnership as of and for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and year ended December 31, 2017 are filed herewith as Exhibit 99.2.

Article 3

Members and Company Percentages, Capital Contributions and Noncontributing Members

Members and Company Percentages

.  The name, Company Percentage and initial capital contribution of each Member are set forth in Schedule A attached hereto.  Subject to the provisions of this Agreement, the Board shall have the right to amend Schedule A from time to time to reflect the admission of any new Member, the withdrawal or substitution of any Member, the contribution (or deemed contribution) of capital to the Company, and the transfer of interests in the Company by any Member, and such amended Schedule A shall be deemed to have been incorporated into this Agreement and be part hereof.

Capital Contributions of the Members

.

(a)On the date of the Initial Agreement, Landmark contributed to the Company 100% of its membership interest in Guarantor, the agreed value of which is set forth opposite Landmark’s name on Schedule A attached hereto. On the Effective Date, Brookfield shall make an initial cash capital contribution to the Company in the amount set forth opposite Brookfield’s name on Schedule A attached hereto (the “Initial Brookfield Contribution”). On the date of the Second Closing, Brookfield shall make an additional cash capital contribution to the Company in an amount equal to the Additional Subscription Price as defined and set forth in the Subscription Agreement (the “Second Closing Brookfield Contribution”).

(b)In addition to the initial capital contribution referred to in paragraph 3.2(a), each Member shall make such capital contributions to the Company in cash pro rata in proportion to such Member’s Company Percentage as of the Effective Date (or in such other proportions as the Members may agree in writing), payable by wire transfer upon at least five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice from the Board in accordance with this Agreement at such time and in such amount as shall be specified in such notice (each, a “Required Capital Contribution”).  The obligation of each Member to make its pro rata share of a Required Capital Contribution shall accrue regardless of whether any other Member failed to pay all or any portion of its pro rata share of such Required Capital Contribution.

If such Noncontributing Member fails to contribute such Deficiency Amount in full within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of such Default Notice, then, during the Default Period and in addition to any remedies available to the Company at law or in equity in the event

14

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

of any Deficiency Amount, the Board may elect to enforce one or more of the provisions of paragraph 3.3(a)(i), to which each Member hereby expressly consents:

(i)The Board may deny the Noncontributing Member the right to (A) participate in any vote or consent of the Members required under this Agreement or permitted under the Act, (B) make any proposal under this Agreement, (C) vote on any matter with respect to which Board approval is required under the terms of this Agreement, excluding any vote to amend this Agreement, or (D) vote or cause the Directors appointed by the Noncontributing Member to vote on any matter coming before the Board; provided that all of the foregoing rights, to the extent denied, shall be automatically reinstated at the end of the Default Period without further Board action.

(ii)The Board may terminate the Noncontributing Member’s right to receive further allocations and distributions from the Company pursuant to Article 4, Article 5, and Article 9, provided, however, that, subject to paragraph 3.5(c) and (d), the Company shall apply all such distributions to curing the default up to an amount equal to the Deficiency Amount and, after such amount has been paid to cure such default, all future distributions shall be made in accordance with the terms of this Agreement prior to such default.

(b)If another Member (any such Member, a “Contributing Member”) timely makes its pro rata share of the applicable Required Capital Contribution, the Contributing Member shall have the right, but not the obligation, to loan to the Noncontributing Member, by contributing to the Company on behalf of the Noncontributing Member (pro rata with other Contributing Members, if applicable), all or any part of the Deficiency Amount (the “Default Loan”), in which case the provisions of paragraph 3.5 shall apply.

(c)Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, a Member who becomes subject to Bankruptcy may be expelled by any other Member, by provision of written notice to the expelled Member, and such expelled Member shall be paid by the Company an amount in cash equal to the amount that would have been distributed to such expelled Member if the Fair Value of the Company were distributed to the Members as of the expulsion date pursuant paragraph 5.4. An expelled Member will no longer have an interest or liability in respect of the Company following its expulsion and receipt of the amount payable to it by the Company under this paragraph 3.3(c). For purposes of this paragraph 3.3(c), the Fair Value of the Company shall be mutually agreed by the Members or, in the event that the Members fail to agree within ten (10) Business Days of receipt by the expelled Member of the expulsion notice, then by a mutually agreeable third party valuator appointed by the Members or, if the Members fail to agree on a valuator within an additional ten (10) Business Days, then by a third party valuator designated by the Administrator.

(d)During the period commencing the first Business Day immediately following the end of the Default Period and ending on the date that is six (6) months thereafter, if and to the extent that no Contributing Member has exercised its right to extend a Default Loan (in which case the provisions of paragraph 3.5 shall apply), the Noncontributing Member shall have the option to restore its status as of the date immediately prior to the commencement of the Default Period by paying to the Company any and all of the Deficiency Amount with interest thereon at a

15

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

rate equal to the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum, compounded quarterly, and the maximum interest rate permitted by law; provided, however, that only the Deficiency Amount (and not interest) shall be considered a capital contribution such that, except in the event a Contributing Member has made capital contributions unrelated to the subject Deficiency Amount, the Company Percentages of the Members are equal to the Company Percentages as of the date immediately prior to the commencement of the Default Period.

(e)The Members agree that irreparable damage would occur if any Member becomes a Noncontributing Member and that the Contributing Member(s) and the Company will be entitled to specific performance of the terms hereof in addition to any other remedy available at law or in equity without the obligation to post bond or other security.

(f)Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, the “Board” as referred to in this paragraph 3.3 shall include only the Directors appointed by a Contributing Member, any two Directors appointed by any Contributing Member shall constitute a quorum and the affirmative decision of a majority of such Directors shall have the authority to take actions with respect to actions requiring Board approval pursuant to this paragraph 3.3.

(iii)the Board shall (y) provide written notice (the “Emergency Funding Notice”) to each Member of the Emergency Funding Event, and each Member (or its Affiliates) shall have five (5) Business Days from the delivery of such notice to elect to lend the Company an amount that in the Board’s determination is necessary to cure or avoid, as applicable, the circumstances causing the Emergency Funding Event (such debt issuance, an ”Emergency

16

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

Funding Debt Issuance”), which loan shall be made pro rata by each electing Member based upon such Member’s Company Percentage and (z) apply the proceeds of such Emergency Funding Debt Issuance solely to address the Emergency Funding Event;

(iv)if an Emergency Funding Debt Issuance is effectuated pursuant to paragraph 3.4(a)(iii), each Member (x) shall vote in favor of all resolutions in its capacity as a Member (to the extent it has the right to vote in respect thereof in accordance with the terms of this Agreement) and shall cause each Director appointed by it (to the extent such Director has the right to vote in respect thereof in accordance with the terms of this Agreement) to vote in favor of all resolutions as a Director, in each case, in order to implement the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance, (y) shall be entitled to participate in the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance pro rata in accordance with such Member’s Company Interest and (z) is hereby deemed to have given all consents necessary to implement such Emergency Funding Debt Issuance to the extent the consent of such Member may otherwise be required (whether under this Agreement or otherwise);  

(v)any Emergency Funding Notice shall set out the basis for the determination that an Emergency Funding Event has occurred, the total amount of funding required in connection with such Emergency Funding Event and the scheduled date of the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance; and

(vi)if any Member declines to subscribe for its pro rata entitlement of the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance, the other Members may subscribe for an additional amount of the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance in excess of its pro rata entitlement up to the amount necessary to fund the Emergency Funding Event.

(b)As soon as reasonably practicable, but in no event later than sixty (60) days after the date of the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance contemplated in paragraph 3.4(a)(iii), the Board shall approve, subject to the applicable terms of this Agreement, an issuance of equity in the Company by initiating a capital call to pay off the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance, and such capital call shall constitute a Required Capital Contribution. If any Member does not fund its pro rata share of the Required Capital Contribution pursuant to this paragraph 3.4(b), the provisions of paragraphs 3.3 and 3.5 shall apply.

(c)The Board may decide not to undertake an equity issuance pursuant to paragraph 3.4(b) to refinance any Emergency Funding Debt Issuance; provided, that, such a decision shall be a Major Decision requiring a Special Board Vote. If the Board decides not to undertake such an equity issuance, each Member who did not participate in the applicable Emergency Funding Debt Issuance shall be provided with an opportunity to take up its pro rata share of the Emergency Funding Debt Issuance on reasonable terms as determined by the Members who participated in such Emergency Funding Debt Issuance.  

(d)Any Emergency Funding Debt Issuance (i) shall bear interest at a rate not to exceed eight percent (8%) per annum, (ii) shall be pre-payable by the Company without premium or penalty, (iii) shall be unsecured and shall not be, on its terms, convertible into equity interests of the Company and (iv) may have other terms that are customary for bridge funding by

17

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

equityholders of similarly situated companies in an emergency or other situations similar to the circumstances described in this paragraph 3.4.

Default Loans

 

(a)The proceeds of each Default Loan shall be paid to the Company, but shall be deemed to be a loan by the Contributing Member(s) to the Noncontributing Member and a capital contribution by the Noncontributing Member to the Company.

(b)Each Default Loan shall accrue interest at the rate of the lesser of (x) eighteen percent (18%) per annum, compounded quarterly, and (y) the maximum rate permitted by law.

(c)While a Default Loan is outstanding, all distributions in respect of the interests in the Company held by a Noncontributing Member that otherwise would be paid to such Noncontributing Member (whether before or after dissolution of the Company), shall instead be paid to the Contributing Member(s) until each Default Loan (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and costs of collection) has been paid in full (or is deemed to be repaid in full in accordance with paragraph 3.5(d)) to the Contributing Member(s) (with payments being applied first to accrued and unpaid interest and then to principal, in each case on a pari-passu basis among all Default Loans made to the Noncontributing Member, regardless of when made).

(d)At any time, at the election of a Contributing Member, with respect to a Default Loan extended by such Contributing Member, (i) such Default Loan (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon) may be converted into an additional capital contribution of the Contributing Member in an amount equal to such Default Loan (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon), (ii) the Noncontributing Member shall be deemed to have received a distribution pursuant to Article 5 of an amount equal to such Default Loan, (iii) such distribution shall be deemed paid to the applicable Contributing Member in repayment of the Default Loan (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon), (iv) such amount shall be deemed contributed by the applicable Contributing Member as an additional capital contribution (a “Default Loan Contribution”) and (v) the applicable Contributing Member’s Capital Account shall be increased by, and the Noncontributing Member’s Capital Account shall be decreased by, an amount equal to such Default Loan (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon).  A Default Loan Contribution shall be deemed an additional capital contribution by the applicable Contributing Member as of the date such Default Loan Contribution is made or the date on which such Default Loan is converted to a Default Loan Contribution.  At the time of a Default Loan Contribution, the Company Percentage of the applicable Contributing Member shall be increased proportionally by the amount of such Default Loan Contribution, thereby diluting the Company Percentage of the Noncontributing Member.  Once a Default Loan Contribution has been made (or deemed made), no subsequent payment or tender in respect of the Default Loan Contribution shall affect the Company Percentages of the Members, as adjusted in accordance with this paragraph 3.5(d).

Article 4

Capital Accounts; Company Allocations

Capital Accounts

.

(a)An individual capital account shall be maintained for each Member (each, a “Capital Account”).  The Capital Account of each Member shall consist of its original capital contribution (i) increased by any additional capital contributions made in cash or the Fair Value of additional capital contributions, its share of income or gain that is allocated to it pursuant to this Agreement, and the amount of any Company liabilities that are assumed by it or that are secured by any Company property distributed to it, and (ii) decreased by the amount of any cash distributions to or withdrawals by it or the Fair Value of any in-kind distributions made to it, its share of expense or loss that is allocated to it pursuant to this Agreement, and the amount of any of its liabilities that are assumed by the Company or that are secured by any property contributed by it to the Company.  The foregoing provision and the other provisions of this Agreement relating to the maintenance of Capital Accounts are intended to comply with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv), and shall be interpreted and applied in a manner consistent with such Treasury Regulation.  In the event the Board shall determine that it is prudent to modify the manner in which the Capital Accounts, or any debits or credits thereto, are computed in order to comply with such Treasury Regulation, the Board may make such modification, provided that such modification is not reasonably likely to alter the total amounts distributable to any Member pursuant to Article 5 and Article 9, or otherwise have an adverse impact on any Member.  The Board shall notify the Members of any such modifications.

(b)If any new Member is admitted to the Company, the Board is hereby authorized to adjust the Capital Accounts of all Members to reflect a revaluation of the Company’s property based on its current value pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f) and in accordance with the definition of Adjusted Asset Value.

Allocation of Profit or Loss

.  Except as hereinafter provided in this Article 4 or elsewhere in this Agreement, for purposes of adjusting the Capital Accounts of the Members, Profit or Loss and, to the extent necessary, individual items of income, gain, loss, credit and deduction, for any Accounting Period shall be allocated among the Members in a manner such that the Adjusted Capital Account Balance of each Member, immediately after making such allocation is, as nearly as possible, equal (proportionately) to the distributions that would be made to such Member in a hypothetical liquidation if the Company were dissolved, its affairs wound up and its assets sold for cash equal to their Adjusted Asset Values, all Company liabilities were satisfied (limited with respect to each nonrecourse liability, within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Sections 1.704-2(b)(3) and 1.752-1(a)(2), to the Adjusted Asset Value of the asset securing such liability), and the net assets of the Company were distributed to the Members in accordance with paragraph 9.3(c), immediately after making such allocation; provided, however, that the Board may adjust the allocations that are determined (without regard to this proviso) pursuant to this paragraph 4.2 if the Board determines reasonably and in good faith that such adjustment is required to comply with the requirements of Section 704(b) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations

19

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

promulgated thereunder, or to give economic effect to the provisions of Article 5 and Article 9 and the other relevant provisions of this Agreement.  

Special Allocations

.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the allocations provided in this Article 4 shall be subject to the following exceptions:

(a)This Agreement is intended to comply with the safe harbor provisions set forth in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-1(b) and 1.704-2, and the allocations set forth in paragraph 4.3(b) (the “Regulatory Allocations”) are intended to comply with certain requirements of such Treasury Regulations.  In the event that the Regulatory Allocations result in allocations being made that are inconsistent with paragraph 4.2, the Board shall adjust subsequent allocations of any items of income, gain, loss, expense and deduction such that the net amount of the Regulatory Allocations and such subsequent special adjustments to each Member equal $0.00.

(b)The following Regulatory Allocations shall be made in the following order:

(i)Except as otherwise provided in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(f), notwithstanding any other provision of this Article 4, if there is a net decrease in the Company’s “minimum gain” (as defined in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(b)(2)) during any Accounting Period, each Member shall be specially allocated items of the Company’s income and gain for such Accounting Period (and, if necessary, subsequent Accounting Periods) in an amount equal to such Member’s share of the net decrease in partnership minimum gain, determined in accordance with Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(g).  This paragraph 4.3(b)(i) is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirement in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(f) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

(ii)Except as otherwise provided in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(4), notwithstanding any other provision of this Article 4, if there is a net decrease in “partner nonrecourse debt minimum gain” (as defined in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(2)) attributable to a “partner nonrecourse debt” (as defined in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(b)(4)) during any Accounting Period, each Member who has a share of such partner nonrecourse debt minimum gain attributable to such partner nonrecourse debt, determined in accordance with Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(5), shall be specially allocated items of the Company’s income and gain for such Accounting Period and, if necessary, subsequent Accounting Periods, in an amount equal to such Member’s share of the net decrease in such partner nonrecourse debt minimum gain, determined in accordance with Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(4).  This paragraph 4.3(b)(ii) is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirement in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(4) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

(iii)In the event any Member unexpectedly receives any adjustments, allocations, or distributions described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4) through (d)(6) which cause the Adjusted Capital Account Balance of such Member to be reduced below $0.00, items of Company income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Member in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate the deficit in its Adjusted Capital Account Balance created by such adjustments, allocations, or distributions as quickly as possible.  Any special

20

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

allocations of items of income, gain, loss or expense pursuant to this paragraph 4.3(b)(iii) shall be taken into account in computing subsequent allocations, so that the net amount of any items so allocated and the profit, gain, loss, income, expense, and all other items allocated to each Member shall, to the extent possible, be equal to the net amount that would have been allocated to each such Member if such original allocations pursuant to this paragraph 4.3(b)(iii) had not occurred.  This paragraph 4.3(b)(iii) is intended to constitute a “qualified income offset” as described in Section 1.704‑1(b)(2)(ii)(d) of the Treasury Regulations and shall be interpreted and applied consistently therewith.

(iv)“Nonrecourse deductions” (as defined in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(b)(1)) of the Company for any Accounting Period shall be allocated to the Members pro rata in proportion to their respective Company Percentages, unless the Board determines that another allocation is required pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2, and each Member’s share of “excess nonrecourse liabilities” (within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.752-3(a)(3)) shall be in the same proportion.

(v)“Partner nonrecourse deductions” (as defined in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)) for any Accounting Period shall be allocated to the Member who bears the economic risk of loss (within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.752-2) with respect to the “partner nonrecourse debt” (as defined in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(a)(4)) to which such partner nonrecourse deductions are attributable in accordance with Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i)(1).

(vi)To the extent any adjustment to the adjusted tax basis of any Company asset pursuant to Section 734(b) or Section 743(b) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts as a result of a distribution to a Member in complete liquidation of its interest in the Company, the amount of such adjustment to Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain (if the adjustment increases such basis) or loss (if the adjustment decreases such basis), and such gain or loss shall be specially allocated to the Members in accordance with their interests in the Company (as determined under Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(3)) in the event Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m)(2) applies, or to the Member to whom such distribution was made in the event Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m)(4) applies.

(vii)If the allocation of Loss (or items of loss or deduction) to a Member as provided in Section 4.2 hereof would create or increase an Adjusted Capital Account Balance deficit, then there shall be allocated to such Member only that amount of Loss (or items of loss or deduction) as will not create or increase an Adjusted Capital Account Balance deficit.  The Loss (or items of loss or deduction) that would, absent the application of the preceding sentence, otherwise be allocated to such Member shall be allocated to the other Members in proportion to their relative Company Percentages, subject to the limitations of this paragraph 4.3(b)(vii).

(viii)If the Adjusted Capital Account Balances of the Members are not in proportion to the Members’ respective Company Interests, including as a result of the operation of paragraph 3.5(d), the Company shall cause future allocations of any gain or loss resulting from the adjustment of the Adjusted Asset Value of any Company asset to be made among the Members in

21

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

a manner so as to cause (to the nearest extent possible) the Adjusted Capital Account Balances of the Members to be in proportion to the Members’ respective Company Interests as of such time.

Income Tax Distributive Shares

.  

(a)Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph 4.4 or as otherwise required by the Code and the rules and Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder, a Member’s distributive share of Company income, gain, loss, deduction, or credit for income tax purposes shall be the same as is entered in the Member’s Capital Account pursuant to this Agreement.

(b)In accordance with Code Section 704(c) and the Treasury Regulations thereunder, income, gain, loss and deduction with respect to any asset contributed to the capital of the Company shall, solely for tax purposes, be allocated among the Members so as to take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such property to the Company for federal income tax purposes and its initial Adjusted Asset Value. With respect to the assets held by the Company as of the Effective Date, the Company shall account for such variation using the “traditional method with curative allocations” as described in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-3(c).  If the Adjusted Asset Value of any Company asset is subsequently adjusted pursuant to the definition of “Adjusted Asset Value” herein, subsequent allocations of income, gain, loss, deduction and credit with respect to such Company asset shall take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such Company asset for federal income tax purposes and its Adjusted Asset Value in a manner consistent with Code Section 704(c) and the applicable Treasury Regulations using any method determined by the Board.  Allocations pursuant to this paragraph 4.4(b) are solely for purposes of federal, state and local taxes and shall not affect, or in any way be taken into account in computing, any Member’s Capital Account or share of Profits, Losses and any other items or distributions pursuant to any provision of this Agreement.

On the date of the Second Closing, the Company shall make a cash distribution to Landmark in an amount equal to the Second Closing Brookfield Contribution.

Tax Advances

.  Subject to the availability of cash and any applicable restriction in the Company’s financing documentation, the Board shall cause the Company to provide the Members with cash advances against distributions to be made to the Members under paragraphs 5.4 and 9.3 to the extent the Board reasonably estimates is necessary for the Members or their direct or indirect beneficial owners to pay when due any taxes (including estimated taxes) imposed with respect to the cumulative taxable income allocated to such Members; provided, that for purposes of this paragraph 5.6, (x) the taxable income allocated to each Member for each taxable year shall be calculated to reflect, pro rata in proportion to such Member’s Company Percentage, the amount of taxable income received by the Member that is allocated the highest amount of taxable income pursuant to paragraph 4.4 for such taxable year in proportion to such Member’s Company Percentage, and (y) the Tax Rate shall be applicable to each Member or its direct or indirect beneficial owners. Amounts advanced to the Members pursuant to this paragraph 5.6 shall be (a) treated as advances against distributions otherwise payable to such Members under paragraphs 5.4 and 9.3 and (b) reduced by the amount of any prior advances made to such Members pursuant to this paragraph 5.6.  The Company and the Members intend that any advance made pursuant to this paragraph 5.6 shall be made to the Members, pro rata in proportion to their respective Company Percentages.

Reinvestment

.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, subject to paragraph 6.1(g), the Board shall be entitled to cause the Company to retain and use or reinvest cash proceeds, distributions or payments from any investments that would otherwise be subject to distribution to the Members in accordance with paragraph 5.4 or 9.3.  

Withholding Obligations

.

(a)Each Member shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, indemnify and hold harmless the Company and each of the Indemnified Parties who is or who is deemed to be the responsible withholding agent for U.S. federal, state or local or non-U.S. income tax purposes against all claims, liabilities and expenses of whatever nature relating to such Indemnified Party’s obligation to withhold and to pay over, or otherwise pay, any withholding or other taxes payable by the Company or as a result of such Member’s participation in the Company.

(b)Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, each Member hereby authorizes the Company to withhold from distributions pursuant to paragraphs 5.4, 5.5 and 9.3 and to pay over, or otherwise pay, any withholding or other taxes payable or required to be deducted by the Company or any of its Affiliates (pursuant to the Code or any provision of U.S. federal, state or local or non-U.S. tax law), including any interest or penalties

23

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

assessed or imposed with respect thereto and any amounts required to be paid by the Company or any of its Affiliates with respect to a Member under Sections 6225 and 6232 of the Code or under Section 1446(f) of the Code, with respect to such Member or as a result of such Member’s participation in the Company; provided, that the Company shall not be permitted to withhold with respect to any Member, or pay any withholding or other taxes, interests or penalties on behalf of any Member, in connection with an Imputed Underpayment unless such Member has agreed to the Tax Matters Member’s allocation of such Imputed Underpayment Amount pursuant to paragraph 10.5. If and to the extent that the Company shall be required to withhold or pay any such withholding or other taxes, interest or penalties, such Member shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to have received a payment from the Company as of the time that such withholding or other tax is required to be paid, which payment shall be deemed to be a distribution with respect to such Member’s interest in the Company to the extent that such Member (or any successor thereto) would have received a cash distribution pursuant to paragraph 5.4, 5.5 or 9.3 but for such withholding.  To the extent that such payment exceeds the cash distribution that such Member would have received pursuant to paragraph 5.4, 5.5 or 9.3 but for such withholding, the Board shall notify such Member as to the amount of such excess and such Member shall make a prompt payment to the Company of such amount by wire transfer, which payment shall not constitute a capital contribution to the Company and, consequently, shall not increase the Capital Account of such Member. In addition, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Member that acquires its interest in the Company from a Person that was a Member at the time of the transfer will succeed to and be responsible for, and will indemnify and hold harmless the Company from, (i) any amounts the transferor Member would have been liable for under this paragraph 5.8 if the transferor had remained a Member, and (ii) any amounts imposed under Section 1446(f) of the Code.  Each Member acknowledges that the Company, the Board, the Tax Matters Member or the MSA Manager may be required to provide the identities of each such Member’s direct and indirect beneficial owners to a Governmental Entity in connection with complying with the foregoing.

(c)Any withholdings referred to in this paragraph 5.8 shall be made at the maximum applicable statutory rate under the applicable tax law unless the Board shall have received an opinion of counsel, or other evidence, satisfactory to the Board to the effect that a lower rate is applicable or that no withholding is applicable.  Upon request of a Member, the Board shall provide reasonable assistance to such Member in obtaining any refund of taxes withheld on account of such Member’s participation in the Company.

(d)In the event that the Company receives any cash proceeds, distributions or payments from or in respect of which tax has been withheld, the Company shall be deemed to have received cash in an amount equal to the amount of such withheld tax, and each Member shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to have received a payment from the Company as of the time of such distribution equal to the portion of such amount that is attributable to such Member’s interest in the Company as equitably determined by the Board.  To the extent that such payment exceeds the cash distribution that such Member would have received pursuant to paragraph 5.4, 5.5 or 9.3 but for such withholding, the Board shall notify such Member as to the amount of such excess and such Member shall make a prompt payment to the Company of such amount by wire transfer, which payment shall not constitute a capital contribution and, consequently, shall not increase the Capital Account of such Member.  In the event that the

24

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

Company anticipates receiving a distribution or payment from which tax will be withheld in kind, the Board may elect to prevent such in-kind withholding by paying such tax in cash and may require each Member in advance of such distribution to make a prompt payment to the Company by wire transfer of the amount of such tax attributable to such Member’s interest in the Company as equitably determined by the Board, which payment shall not constitute a capital contribution and, consequently, shall not increase the Capital Account of such Member.

Article 6

Management

Management

.

(a)General.  The Company shall have a Board of Directors (the “Board”) established as set forth in this paragraph 6.1. The Board, except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, shall have the sole and exclusive right to manage, control, and conduct the business of the Company, and to do any and all acts on behalf of the Company, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law.  The Board acting in accordance with this Agreement shall be deemed the “manager” of the Company for purposes of the Act.

(b)Tax Classification Election.  The Board shall not make any election which would cause the Company to be taxed as an association rather than as a partnership for federal income tax purposes.

(c)Appointment.  The Board shall consist of a number of individuals (each, a “Director”) to be appointed, replaced and removed as follows:  subject to the terms of this paragraph 6.1(c), each Member shall be entitled to appoint, replace and remove one (1) Director for each twenty (20%) of the Company Percentage held by such Member.  The Directors appointed by Landmark in accordance with this paragraph 6.1(c) are referred to as the “Landmark Directors” and the Directors appointed by Brookfield in accordance with this paragraph 6.1(c) are referred to as the “Brookfield Directors.”  As of the Effective Date, (i) Landmark shall be entitled to appoint two (2) Directors, and the initial Landmark Directors are Arthur P. Brazy, Jr. and George P. Doyle and (ii) Brookfield shall be entitled to appoint two (2) Directors, and the initial Brookfield Directors are Bill Bates and Eduardo Salgado. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if after the Effective Date, the Company Percentage of any Member decreases below forty percent (40%), such Member shall forfeit the right to elect one (1) Director, and if the Company Percentage of such Member decreases below twenty percent (20%), such Member shall forfeit the right to elect both Directors.  In the event that the right of a Member to elect a Director has been forfeited pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, the number of Directors on the Board shall correspondingly be reduced, subject to the immediately following sentence. If (i) in connection with a transfer pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of Article 8, a transferee of an interest in the Company acquires at least twenty percent (20%) of the Company Percentage, and upon such transferee becoming a substituted Member in accordance with paragraph 8.6, or (ii) the Company Percentage of an existing Member increases above the Company Percentage of such Member as of the Effective Date, such substituted or existing Member, respectively, shall be entitled to elect one (1) Director for every twenty percent (20%) of the Company Percentage owned by such substituted or

25

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

existing Member, as applicable. The number of Directors on the Board shall correspondingly be increased to the extent an election right is gained as provided in this paragraph 6.1(c) to offset any decrease required by this paragraph 6.1(c); provided that in no event shall the number of Directors of the Company exceed five (5).

(d)Resignation; Removal.  Any Director may resign at any time by giving thirty (30) days written notice to the Board.  If any Person ceases to serve as a Director, the vacancy resulting thereby shall be filled by a new Director appointed by the Member that appointed the outgoing Director in accordance with paragraph 6.1(c), and the Members shall take all action necessary to promptly elect, if necessary, such successor or replacement Director as soon as possible after the date of such vacancy.  Any Director may be removed and replaced at any time by the Member that appointed such Director and by no other Member.

(e)Voting.  The vote of the Directors (the vote of each Director, a “Board Vote”) on any matter before the Board shall be based on the Company Percentage of each Member appointing the Directors, such that each Director shall be authorized to vote (i) the aggregate Company Percentage held by the Member appointing such Director divided by (ii) the number of Directors appointed by such Member; provided that any Director may give any other Director a proxy to represent such first Director in any matters.  Except in connection with a Major Decision (the approval of which shall require a Special Board Vote), any action required or permitted to be taken by the Board may be taken by either (i) the affirmative Board Vote by Directors representing Members holding an aggregate Company Percentage greater than fifty percent (50%) or (ii) the written consent of Directors without a meeting as provided in paragraph 6.1(j); provided that, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, during the Securitization Period, the Company Percentage of Brookfield for all purposes of this Article 6, including with respect to any Board Vote, shall be deemed to be fifty percent (50%). Each Landmark Director shall be entitled to vote all of the Board Votes that the other Landmark Directors are or would be entitled to cast pursuant to this Agreement had such other Landmark Directors been in attendance at the relevant Board meeting.  Each Brookfield Director shall be entitled to vote all of the Board Votes that the other Brookfield Directors are or would be entitled to cast pursuant to this Agreement had such other Brookfield Directors been in attendance at the relevant Board meeting.

(f)Major Decisions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, without a Special Board Vote, the Company shall not do, nor shall the Board cause or permit the Company to do, any of the following (each, a “Major Decision”):

(1)undertake any acquisitions or divestitures, in each case, in excess of $2,600,000 during any calendar year (whether in one or a series of related transactions);

(3)undertake any merger, restructuring, joint venture or other business combination transaction or fundamental corporate transaction, or make any loans to, or acquire any interests in, any Person;

26

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

(4)amend, modify or waive any provision of this Agreement, except as permitted pursuant to paragraph 3.1, or modify the size of the Board;

(8)fundamentally alter the general nature of the Business or enter into a new line of business;

(9)commence a voluntary case under, or consent to the entry of a decree or order for relief in an involuntary case under, any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium, or other similar law now or hereafter in effect;

(10)dissolve, liquidate, wind up, recapitalize or reorganize the Company, except in accordance with Article 9;

(11)subject to paragraph 6.2(c): (A) enter into any Related Party Transaction, excluding the payment of a Director’s out-of-pocket expenses pursuant to paragraph 6.1(m); (B) amend or otherwise modify any Related Party Transaction; or (C) exercise any rights or remedies with respect to a Related Party Transaction; provided, however, that except with respect to causing the Company to amend, modify or otherwise exercise any rights or remedies under, the Management Services Agreement and/or the Operating and Management Agreement, any interested Director shall recuse itself from all meetings and discussions regarding such Related Party Transaction and any vote thereon (it being agreed that any action or decision by the Company to amend, modify or otherwise exercise any rights or remedies under, the Management Services Agreement and/or the Operating and Management Agreement shall in all cases constitute a Related Party Transaction requiring a Special Board Vote hereunder and that no Director shall be required to recuse itself from participating in any such actions or decisions); provided, further, that if as a result of the immediately preceding proviso, there are no Directors eligible to attend such meetings or discussions or to vote on matters regarding the applicable Related Party Transaction, the unanimous vote of all Directors shall be necessary and sufficient to take actions with respect to matters regarding the subject Related Party Transaction;

(12)enter into any new lease(s) or amend any existing lease(s) where the aggregate change to the rental revenue of such lease(s) or the annual rental revenue of the

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

Company is more than $100,000 (or another threshold as determined by the Board at a later date as reasonably appropriate); and/or

(13)enter into any contract or agreement providing for or otherwise committing the Company to take any of the foregoing actions.

(g)Disputed Matters.  If the Board is unable to come to a decision in respect of any matter to be voted upon or approved by the Board within fifteen (15) Business Days of such matter first being tabled at a Board meeting and such indecision is reasonably likely to impair the ability of the Company to engage in the Business or to conduct the Business in an effective manner (a “Disputed Matter”), such Disputed Matter shall be referred to the senior executives of the Members who shall seek to resolve the Disputed Matter on an amicable basis.  If the matter cannot be settled by agreement in initial discussions, then either Member may give notice that it seeks formally to resolve the Disputed Matter within thirty (30) days (the “Dispute Resolution Period”). If the Disputed Matter is resolved on an amicable basis prior to the expiration of the Dispute Resolution Period pursuant to this paragraph 6.1(g), then the Members shall procure that their appointed Directors shall vote at any meeting or act by written consent of the Board, as appropriate, to give effect to such resolution.  If the Disputed Matter is not resolved on an amicable basis prior to the expiration of the Dispute Resolution Period pursuant to this paragraph 6.1(g) and concerns the approval of any budget or Business Plan for any year, the prior year’s budget and Business Plan, adjusted for any changes in the consumer price index over the relevant period, shall continue to apply unless and until a new budget and Business Plan is approved. If any other Disputed Matter is not resolved on an amicable basis prior to the expiration of the Dispute Resolution Period pursuant to this paragraph 6.1(g), then a deadlock shall be deemed to have occurred and, the matter shall be deemed not approved by the Board.

(h)Meetings.  Meetings of the Board shall be held at such times and with such frequency as shall be designated from time to time by the Board.  Additionally, special meetings of the Board may be called by any Director.  Notice of any meeting of the Board or of any action to be taken by written consent of the Board without a meeting pursuant to paragraph 6.1(j) shall be given not later than three (3) Business Days in advance of such meeting or proposed action, and may be given by telephone, by email, facsimile transmission, certified mail (return receipt requested) or by personal delivery.  The Board shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to give notice of such meeting or such proposed action at least five (5) days prior to such meeting or such proposed action.  A Director may waive notice of the date, time, place and purpose or purposes of a meeting of the Board.  A waiver of notice is effective whether given before, at or after a meeting, and whether given in writing, orally or by attendance.  Attendance by a Director at a meeting is a waiver of notice of that meeting, unless the Director objects at the beginning of the meeting to the transaction of business because the meeting is not properly called or convened, or objects before a vote on an item of business because the item may not properly be considered at that meeting and does not participate in the consideration of the item at that meeting.  Any meeting of the Board may be held in person, telephonically or through other communications equipment by means of which all participating members of the Board can simultaneously hear and address each other during the meeting.

(j)Actions Without Meetings.  On any matter that is to be voted on, consented to or approved by Board, the Board may take such action without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote if consented to or approved, in writing, by electronic transmission or by any other means permitted by law, by Directors holding not less than the number of Board Votes required to approve such action if a Board meeting had actually been convened, provided that the Board shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide at least five (5) days’ advance written notice of the proposed action and the purpose therefor to all Directors, to the extent reasonably practicable given any relevant exigencies of time.  Any such written consent shall have the same effect as an act of the Board at a properly called and constituted meeting of the Board.  Copies of any executed written consent shall be delivered to all Directors promptly after execution thereof.  Each Landmark Director shall be entitled to act by written consent on behalf of all of the Board Votes that the other Landmark Directors are or would be entitled to act by written consent pursuant to this Agreement had such other Landmark Directors been available to sign such written consent.  Each Brookfield Director shall be entitled to act by written consent on behalf of all of the Board Votes that the other Brookfield Directors are or would be entitled to act by written consent pursuant to this Agreement had such other Brookfield Directors been available to sign such written consent.

(l)Duties.  Notwithstanding any duty otherwise existing at law or in equity, except to the extent of any limitation arising from the implied contractual covenant of good faith and fair dealing referenced in Section 18-1101(c) of the Act, each Director, in his or her capacity as such, may act in the sole interests of the Member designating him or her, whether or not such interests conflict with interests of the Company or the other Members, and each Director, in his or her capacity as such, shall have no duty or obligation (fiduciary or otherwise) to give any consideration to any interest of, or factors affecting, the Company or the other Members.  A Person who performs his or her duties as a Director in good faith shall not have any liability by reason of being or having been a Director.  The provisions of this Agreement, to the extent that they restrict

29

the duties and liabilities of any such Persons otherwise existing at law or in equity, are agreed by the Members to modify such other duties and liabilities of such Persons.

(m)Reimbursements.  No Director shall be entitled to remuneration from the Company for services rendered in such Director’s capacity as a Director (other than for reimbursement of reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of such Director in accordance with Company policy, including reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in attending meetings of the Directors).

(n)Management Services Agreement. On the Effective Date, the Board has caused the Company to enter into that certain management services agreement (the “Management Services Agreement”) with the MSA Manager attached hereto as Exhibit A, pursuant to which the MSA Manager will manage the day-to-day operations of the Company under the supervision of the Board in coordination with its activities in its capacity as the manager under the Management Agreement with respect to the Subsidiaries of the Company.

6.2Operating Budget and CapEx Budget.

(a)For so long as (i) the Management Services Agreement has not been terminated and (ii) the Company has not formed any new Subject Company after the Effective Date that is managed outside of the Management Services Agreement (an “Excluded Subject Company”), the operating budget and capital expenditure budget for the Subject Companies for each calendar year will be the operating budget, capital expenditure budget and rolling five (5)-year business plan (such rolling five (5)-year business plan, the “Business Plan”) prepared by the MSA Manager for such calendar year in accordance with the Management Services Agreement and approved by the Board.

(b)Following such time as (i) the Management Agreement has been terminated or (ii) the Company has formed an Excluded Subject Company, the Members shall use good faith efforts to mutually agree on an annual budget and Business Plan for each calendar year (x) relating to the Subject Companies, in the case of clause (i), or (y) relating to such Excluded Subject Company/ies, in the case of clause (ii), the approval of which, and any material amendments or changes thereto, or deviations therefrom, shall require an approval by the Board.

(c)Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything else to the contrary in this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement is intended to, nor shall any provision of this Agreement, modify, limit, impair or otherwise have any effect on the rights of the Manager under the Management Agreement, all of such rights, including the right to set the operating budget and capital expenditure budget in accordance with the Management Agreement, remaining the exclusive right of the Manager in accordance with the Management Agreement.

No Control by the Members

(a)If any Member proposes to transfer all or any portion of its direct interest in the Company representing at least ten percent (10%) of the aggregate issued and outstanding equity interests in the Company to any Eligible Purchaser that is not an Affiliate of such Member, then such transferring Member (the “Selling Member”) shall deliver to each other Member with a Company Percentage equal to or greater than twenty-five percent (25%) (the “Other Members”) a written notice (the “ROFR Notice”) that (i) states the Selling Member’s bona fide intention to sell such interest in the Company (the “Selling Member’s Interest”) to such Eligible Purchaser (the “Prospective Purchaser”) and (ii) provides all the material terms and conditions, including the price, pursuant to which the Selling Member proposes to sell the Selling Member’s Interest to the Prospective Purchaser. Such notice shall constitute a binding offer by the Selling Member to sell the Selling Member’s Interest to the Other Members for the consideration and on the other terms and conditions set forth in the ROFR Notice, except that the closing date shall be as set forth in paragraph 8.3(d).

Tag-Along Right

.

(a)If any Selling Member proposes to transfer the Selling Member’s Interest to a Prospective Purchaser, after complying with paragraph 8.3, then such Selling Member shall deliver to all other Members irrespective of each Member’s Company Percentage (the “Tag-Along Members”) a written notice (the “Tag-Along Notice”) that (i) states the Selling Member’s bona fide intention to sell the Selling Member’s Interest to such Prospective Purchaser, and (ii) provides all the material terms and conditions, including the price, pursuant to which the Selling Member proposes to sell the Selling Member’s Interest to the Prospective Purchaser (which price and other terms, pursuant to paragraph 8.3(c), must be no less favorable to the Selling Member than described in the ROFR Notice). The Tag-Along Members shall have the right to require that a corresponding percentage of their respective interest in the Company (the “Tagged Interest”) be offered for sale together with the Selling Member’s Interest by delivering to the Selling Member, within five (5) Business Days after the receipt of such Tag-Along Notice (the “Tag-Along Exercise Period”) a written notice (the “Tag Along Exercise Notice”) electing the same. If the Tag-Along Members deliver a Tag-Along Exercise Notice within the Tag-Along Exercise Period, then (i) the Selling Member shall be required to offer for sale the Tagged Interest along with the pro rata amount of the Selling Member’s Interest and include the Tagged Interest in any sale of the pro rata amount of the Selling Member’s Interest to the Prospective Purchaser on the same terms and conditions as those applicable to the pro rata amount of the Selling Member’s Interest and (ii) the Tag-Along Members shall sell the Tagged Interest to the Prospective Purchaser in accordance with this paragraph 8.4 and shall take all actions required herein to consummate such sale, subject to the following:

(ii)To the extent any covenants or agreements are capable of performance only by a certain Tag-Along Member, such covenants or agreements shall be made only by such Tag-Along Member and such Tag-Along Member shall be solely liable for indemnification claims based upon breaches of covenants and agreements that pertain to itself, and the Tag-Along Members will in no event be required to agree to be bound by any non-compete or other restrictive covenant in connection with such sale.

35

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

(v)The aggregate purchase price payable for the interests in the Company sold in the sale to the Prospective Purchaser shall be allocated among and paid to the Tag-Along Members pro rata in proportion to their respective percentages of the interest in the Company sold in such transaction.

action, or demand against any Indemnified Party that is in connection with, arises out of or in any way relates to the Company, its properties, business, or affairs, and (ii) such claims, actions, and demands and any losses liabilities, expenses or damages resulting from such claims, actions, and demands, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and amounts paid in settlement or compromise of any such claim, action or demand, in each case so long as such Indemnified Party acted in the good faith belief that such action or failure to act was in the best interests, or not opposed to the best interests, of the Subject Companies and such action or failure to act was not in breach of this Agreement and did not constitute fraud, gross negligence, criminal conduct or willful misconduct.  Expenses incurred by any Indemnified Party in defending a claim or proceeding covered by this paragraph 13.4 may be paid by the Company in advance of the final disposition of such claim or proceeding; provided the Indemnified Party undertakes to repay such amount if it is ultimately determined that such Indemnified Party was not entitled to be indemnified.

(b)The right of an Indemnified Party to indemnification hereunder shall not be exclusive of any other right or remedy that an Indemnified Party may have pursuant to applicable law or this Agreement.

(c)An Indemnified Party shall be fully protected in relying in good faith upon the records of the Subject Companies and upon such information, opinions, reports or statements presented to the Subject Companies by any Person as to matters the Indemnified Party reasonably believes are within such other Person’s professional or expert competence and who has been selected with reasonable care by or on behalf of the Subject Companies, including information, opinions, reports or statements as to the value and amount of the assets, liabilities, or any other facts pertinent to the existence and amount of assets from which distributions to the Members might properly be paid.

44

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

Party of its election to assume the defense thereof, the Company shall not be liable to such Indemnified Party for any legal expenses of Indemnified Party’s counsel or any other Indemnified Party expenses, in each case subsequently incurred by such Indemnified Party.

(h)If any Indemnified Party becomes involved in any capacity in any action, proceeding or investigation with respect to which it in good faith and reasonably believes that it is entitled to indemnification hereunder, such Indemnified Party will be periodically advanced or reimbursed its legal and other expenses in connection therewith (including any retainer and the cost of any investigation and preparation); provided that such Indemnified Party (i) affirms in writing that it in good faith believes that it is entitled to indemnification hereunder and (ii) undertakes in writing to repay to the Company the amount of any such advanced or reimbursed expenses paid to it to the extent that it shall ultimately be determined that such Indemnified Party is not entitled to be indemnified in connection with such action, proceeding or investigation; and provided further that an Indemnified Party shall not be entitled to advancement of expenses incurred with respect to an underlying matter in which such Indemnified Party or its Affiliate was the plaintiff, but shall be entitled to reimbursement of such expenses if such Indemnified Party prevails in such action.

(b)Any Member Dispute arising under this Agreement shall be considered in person or by telephone by the designated representatives (“Representatives”) of each Member within seven (7) Business Days of receipt of a written notice from either Member specifying the nature of the Member Dispute.  The Representatives shall meet as often as the Members deem reasonably necessary to gather and furnish to each other information with respect to the Member Dispute at issue which is appropriate and germane in connection with its resolution.  The Representatives shall discuss the Member Dispute and negotiate in good faith in an effort to resolve the Member Dispute without the necessity of any formal proceeding relating thereto.

(c)If the Representatives are unable to resolve the Member Dispute within thirty (30) days of their first meeting pursuant to clause (b) above, either Member may give the other written notice of the existence of a continuing impasse, and the Members shall thereafter immediately submit the Member Dispute to mediation.  The Parties will act in good faith to jointly appoint a mutually acceptable third party mediator, and if they cannot agree to a mediator or any aspect of the mediation procedures they will submit the mediation to JAMS Inc. (the “Administrator”) in accordance with its International Mediation Rules & Procedures (“Mediation Rules”).  The Members agree to participate in good faith in the mediation and negotiations related

45

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

thereto for a period of thirty (30) days commencing with the selection of the mediator and any extension of such period as mutually agreed to by the Members.  Each Member shall bear its own costs relating to such mediation, and the Members shall equally share the mediator’s and Administrator’s fees.  Participation in the mediation will be without prejudice to the rights of the Members in all respects if the mediation does not achieve an agreed resolution of the Member Dispute.  

Counterparts

.  This Agreement may be executed in two counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but both shall constitute one and the same instrument.

The Members acknowledge that the Affected Parties derive independent economic value from the Confidential Information not being generally known to the public and that the Confidential Information is the subject of reasonable efforts to maintain its secrecy.  The Members further acknowledge that the Confidential Information is a trade secret, the disclosure of which is likely to cause substantial and irreparable competitive harm to the Affected Parties or their respective businesses.  Each Member agrees to (i) hold in confidence, and not to disclose to any Person without the consent of the Company, any Confidential Information, and to use the same degree of care as such Member uses to protect its own confidential information in carrying out the foregoing confidentiality obligation and (ii) not use any Confidential Information for any purpose not related or incidental to such Member’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Member may disclose such Confidential Information (w) to its officers, directors, trustees, wholly-owned subsidiaries, employees and outside advisors (including its attorneys and accountants) on a need to know basis so long as such Persons are advised of the confidentiality provisions of this paragraph 13.12 and so long as such Member shall remain liable for any breach of this paragraph 13.12 by such Persons, (x) to any actual or potential investors, debt and equity financing sources, partners, participants and assignees and bona fide potential purchasers of such Member’s interest in the Company where such Confidential Information is the subject of and protected by a binding confidentiality agreement or obligations of confidentiality, (y) to the extent that the information can be established by such Member to have been rightfully received by such Member from a third party without confidential limitations or to have been rightfully in such Member’s possession prior to the Company’s conveyance of such information to such Member or (z) to the extent that the information provided by the Company is otherwise generally available in the public domain.

49

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other Person any right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement, except as expressly provided in paragraphs 13.3 and 13.4.

Joint Contribution to Agreement Preparation

.  This Agreement shall not be construed more strictly against one Member than against any other Member merely by virtue of the fact that it may have been prepared primarily by counsel for one of the Members, it being recognized that all Members contributed substantially and materially to the preparation of this Agreement.

Waiver

.  No failure by any Member to insist upon the strict performance of any covenant, agreement, term or condition of this Agreement or to exercise any right or remedy consequent upon a breach of such covenant, agreement, term or condition shall operate as a waiver of such or any other covenant, agreement, term or condition of this Agreement.  Any Member by notice given in accordance with paragraph 13.8 may, but shall not be under any obligation to, waive any of its rights or conditions to its obligations hereunder, or any duty, obligation or covenant of the other Members.  No such waiver shall affect or alter the remainder of this Agreement but each and every covenant, agreement, term and condition hereof shall continue in full force and effect with respect to any other then existing or subsequent breach.

Severability

.  If any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, then (w) such provision shall be fully severable, (x) this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof, (y) the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance herefrom, and (z) in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added automatically as a part of this Agreement a legal, valid and enforceable provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible, and this Agreement shall be construed in a manner which, as nearly as possible, reflects the original intent of the Members.

Specific Enforcement

50

 

US-DOCS\101960009.22

 


 

FOR THE SUBJECT COMPANIES MAY ALSO PERFORM SERVICES FOR OTHER LANDMARK ENTITIES AND ANY AFFILIATES OF THE FOREGOING.  IT IS CONTEMPLATED THAT ANY SUCH DUAL REPRESENTATION MAY CONTINUE.  THE BOARD MAY, WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF ANY MEMBER, EXECUTE ON BEHALF OF THE COMPANY ANY CONSENT TO THE REPRESENTATION OF ANY SUBJECT COMPANY, LANDMARK OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES THAT COUNSEL MAY REQUEST PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE RULES OF ETHICS AND/OR PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT OR SIMILAR RULES IN ANY APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.  THE COMPANY HAS INITIALLY SELECTED LATHAM & WATKINS LLP (“COMPANY COUNSEL”) AS LEGAL COUNSEL TO THE SUBJECT COMPANIES.  EACH MEMBER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT COMPANY COUNSEL DOES NOT REPRESENT ANY MEMBER IN ITS CAPACITY AS SUCH IN THE ABSENCE OF A CLEAR AND EXPLICIT WRITTEN AGREEMENT TO SUCH EFFECT BETWEEN SUCH MEMBER AND COMPANY COUNSEL (AND THEN ONLY TO THE EXTENT SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN SUCH AGREEMENT), AND THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY SUCH AGREEMENT COMPANY COUNSEL SHALL OWE NO DUTIES TO ANY MEMBER, WHETHER OR NOT COMPANY COUNSEL HAS IN THE PAST REPRESENTED OR IS CURRENTLY REPRESENTING SUCH MEMBER WITH RESPECT TO OTHER MATTERS.

Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP and Brookfield Asset Management Form Joint Venture to Invest in Core Infrastructure Assets

 

 

El Segundo, California, September 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP (the “Partnership” or “Landmark”) (NASDAQ: LMRK) today announced it has entered into an agreement pursuant to which an affiliate of Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (“Brookfield”) has made a strategic investment with Landmark to form a joint venture (the “JV”) to invest in core infrastructure assets.

 

In the transaction, Landmark contributed a portfolio of assets, including the associated debt, in exchange for an approximate 50 percent interest in the JV and $65.5 million in cash.  Landmark plans to use the proceeds from this transaction to reduce its leverage levels and reinvest in assets in its primary industries through its various acquisition and development activities.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Brookfield, one of the world’s leading global alternative asset managers and infrastructure investors,” said Tim Brazy, Chief Executive Officer of the Partnership’s general partner.  “Brookfield’s partnership with us speaks to the tremendous opportunities we see in our markets and will leverage the strengths of both parties, allowing us to significantly expand our reach in our core industries.  This venture is a continuation of our strategy to establish significant partnerships that complement Landmark’s overall business, enhance our leadership position in infrastructure and real estate and further support our acquisition efforts and development initiatives.”

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws.  These statements discuss future expectations, contain projections of results of operations or of financial condition or state other forward-looking information.  You can identify forward-looking statements by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “project,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “would,” “will” or other similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes.  These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control and are difficult to predict.  These statements are often based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including examination of historical operating trends made by the management of the Partnership.  Although the Partnership believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond its control, the Partnership cannot give assurance that it will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or intentions.  When considering these forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the risk factors and other cautionary statements contained in the Partnership’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”),

 

#5784104


 

including the Partnership’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on February 15, 2018.  These risks could cause the Partnership’s actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

 

 

About Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP

The Partnership owns and manages a portfolio of real property interests and infrastructure assets that the Partnership leases to companies in the wireless communication, outdoor advertising and renewable power generation industries.

Pro Forma Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

Set forth below are the unaudited pro forma consolidated statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and the year ended December 31, 2017 and the consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2018 (together with the notes to the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements, the “pro forma financial statements”), of Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP (together with its consolidated entities, the “Partnership,” “we,” “our” or “us”). The pro forma financial statements should be read in conjunction with our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, including the related financial statement notes.

On September 24, 2018, Landmark Infrastructure Operating Company LLC (“LMRK OpCo”), a consolidated subsidiary of the Partnership, completed the formation of a joint venture (the “JV”) with BAM BSIP WarehouseCo LLC (“Brookfield”), pursuant to which LMRK OpCo contributed 100% of its membership interest in LMRK Guarantor Co III LLC (“Guarantor Co”) to the JV, in exchange for a 50.01% membership interest in the JV and $65.5 million in cash (the “Transaction”). The Transaction does not represent a strategic shift in our operations.

The pro forma financial statements have been prepared as if the Transaction had occurred as of June 30, 2018, in the case of the pro forma consolidated balance sheet, and as if the Transaction had occurred on January 1, 2017, in the case of the pro forma consolidated statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and the year ended December 31, 2017. The adjustments to our pro forma consolidated financial statements are based on available information and assumptions that our management considers appropriate. Our pro forma financial statements are presented for illustrative purposes only and do not purport to (1) represent our financial position that would have actually occurred had the Transaction occurred on June 30, 2018, (2) represent the results of our operations that would have actually occurred had the Transaction occurred on January 1, 2017 and (3) project our financial position or results of operations as of any future date or for any future period, as applicable.

The Partnership’s unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S‑X, using the assumptions set forth in the notes to the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements. The Partnership’s unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements also do not give effect to the potential impact of current financial conditions, any anticipated synergies, or operating efficiencies.
