ITEM 30. INDEMNIFICATION

 

The information contained under the headings “Description of Securities — Limitation on Liability of Trustees and Officers; Indemnification and Advance of Expenses,” “Management of the Trust and the Master Fund — Compensation of Executive Officers” and “Plan of Distribution — Compensation of the Distributor and Selected Broker Dealers” is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) may be permitted to trustees, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the provisions described above, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a trustee, officer or controlling person in the successful defense of an action suit or proceeding) is asserted by a director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is again public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

 

The Registrant carries liability insurance for the benefit of its trustees and officers (other than with respect to claims resulting from the willful misfeasance, bad faith, gross negligence or reckless disregard of the duties involved in the conduct of his or her office) on a claims-made basis.

 

The Registrant has agreed to indemnify the underwriters against specified liabilities for actions taken in their capacities as such, including liabilities under the Securities Act.

 

ITEM 31. BUSINESS AND OTHER CONNECTIONS OF INVESTMENT ADVISER

 

A description of any other business, profession, vocation, or employment of a substantial nature in which the Advisor and each manager or executive officer of the Advisor, is or has been during the past two fiscal years, engaged in for his or her own account or in the capacity of director, officer, employee, partner or trustee, is set forth in the sections entitled “Management of the Trust and the Master Fund” and “Portfolio Management” in the prospectus. Additional information regarding the Advisor and its officers and managers is set forth in its Form ADV, as filed with the SEC (SEC File No. 801-107220), and is incorporated herein by reference.

1.                  Colony NorthStar FV Expense Payments to the Fund.

 

(a)               Commencing with the calendar quarter ended March 31, 2017 and on a quarterly basis thereafter (or more frequently as may be requested by the Fund), Colony NorthStar FV shall, reimburse the Fund for expenses (excluding offering expenses) and/or provide additional support payments in an amount equal to the difference between the Fund’s cumulative distributions to shareholders for the applicable quarter in which a record date has occurred less Available Operating Funds (defined below) received by the Fund on account of its investment portfolio for such quarter. Any payments required to be made by Colony NorthStar FV pursuant to this Agreement shall be referred to herein as an “Expense Payment.” “Available Operating Funds” means the Fund’s net investment income (plus offering expenses) for such quarter minus Reimbursement Payments (as defined below), if any, payable to Colony NorthStar FV during such quarter pursuant to Section 2(a).

 

 - 1 - 

 

(b)               Colony NorthStar FV’s obligation to make an Expense Payment shall automatically become a liability of Colony NorthStar FV and the right to such Expense Payment shall be an asset of the Fund on each day that the Fund’s net asset value is calculated. The Expense Payment for any calendar quarter shall be paid by Colony NorthStar FV to the Fund in any combination of cash or other immediately available funds, and/or offset against amounts due from the Fund to Colony NorthStar FV or the Advisor, no later than the earlier of (i) the date on which the Fund closes its books for such calendar quarter and (ii) 45 days after the end of such calendar quarter (the “Expense Payment Date”).

 

2.                  Reimbursement of Expense Payments by the Fund.

 

(a)               Following any calendar quarter in which Available Operating Funds in such calendar quarter exceed the cumulative distributions to the Fund’s shareholders for which a record date has occurred (the amount of such excess being hereinafter referred to as “Excess Operating Funds”), the Fund shall pay to the extent the Fund has cash available to pay, such Excess Operating Funds, or a portion thereof in accordance with Sections 2(b), 2(c) and 2(d), as applicable, to Colony NorthStar FV until such time as all Expense Payments made by Colony NorthStar FV to the Fund within three years prior to the last business day of such calendar quarter have been reimbursed. Any payments required to be made by the Fund pursuant to this Section 2(a) shall be referred to herein as a “Reimbursement Payment.”

 

(b)               Subject to Section 2(c), the amount of the Reimbursement Payment for any calendar quarter shall equal the lesser of (i) the Excess Operating Funds in such calendar quarter and (ii) the aggregate amount of all Expense Payments made by Colony NorthStar FV to the Fund within three years prior to the last business day of such calendar quarter that have not been previously reimbursed by the Fund to Colony NorthStar FV.

 

(c)               Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no Reimbursement Payment for any calendar quarter shall be made if (i) the annualized rate of regular distributions declared by the Fund at the time of such Reimbursement Payment is less than the annualized rate of regular cash distributions declared by the Fund at the time the Expense Payment was made to which such Reimbursement Payment relates or (ii) the Operating Expense Ratio as of such Reimbursement Date (as defined below) is greater than the Operating Expense Ratio as of the Expense Payment Date attributable to such specified Expense Payment.

 

(d)               The Fund’s obligation to make a Reimbursement Payment shall automatically become a liability of the Fund and the right to such Reimbursement Payment shall be an asset of Colony NorthStar FV on each day that the Fund’s net asset value is calculated. The Reimbursement Payment for any calendar quarter shall be paid by the Fund to Colony NorthStar FV in any combination of cash or other immediately available funds as promptly as possible following such calendar quarter and in no event later than 45 days after the end of such calendar quarter (the “Reimbursement Date”). Any Reimbursement Payments shall be deemed to have reimbursed Colony NorthStar FV for Expense Payments in chronological order beginning with the oldest Expense Payment eligible for reimbursement under this Section 2.
