(a)                                 Executive Cooperation.  Executive hereby agrees that from and after the Termination Date and until December 31, 2018, Executive will be available, at reasonable times and for reasonable periods, not to exceed five (5) hours a week, to respond to inquiries from and provide information to the lead independent member of the Board of Directors of the Company with respect to matters in which Executive was personally involved during the term of his employment.  In addition, from and after the Termination Date, Executive shall reasonably cooperate with the Company and its affiliates, agents, accountants and attorneys in any internal investigation, any administrative, regulatory or judicial investigation or proceeding or any dispute with a third party as reasonably requested by the Company (including Executive being available to the Company upon reasonable notice for interviews, depositions and factual investigations, appearing at the Company’s request to give testimony without requiring service of a subpoena or other legal process, volunteering to the Company all pertinent information and turning over to the Company all relevant documents which are or may come into Executive’s possession, all at times and on schedules that are reasonably consistent with Executive’s other permitted activities and commitments).  In the event the Company requires Executive’s cooperation in accordance with this Section 8, the Company shall reimburse Executive for reasonable and documented costs and expenses (including lodging and meals and attorney’s fees and expenses) incurred by Executive in connection with the performance of Executive’s obligations under this Section 8.

 

(b)                                 Company Cooperation.  The Company will direct Executive’s former administrative assistant to permanently remove and delete from her computer all of Executive’s user names, passwords and other log-in credentials for Executive’s personal accounts stored on her computer and will provide Executive with an affidavit executed by such person that such records have been permanently removed and deleted from her computer.  The Company will make suitable arrangements for assisting Executive with forwarding Executive’s personal emails sent to his Company email address, changing the log-in details for his laptop, iPad, iPhone, blackberry or other electronic devices provided to him by the Company, changing the delivery address for any subscriptions that the Company has prepaid for Executive, and similar logistical matters.  To the extent that the Company has prepaid for any subscriptions or dues for Executive, the Company will not cancel such subscriptions or seek any refund of any dues, and Executive shall remain entitled to receive or have the benefit of items at no cost or expense to the Executive.

9.                                      Additional Covenants.

 

(a)                                 Executive Non-disparagement.  Executive agrees that Executive will not in any way disparage the name or reputation of the Company or any of the Company Releasees, including, without limitation, by (i) making any derogatory or negative remarks about the Company or any of the Company Releasees or (ii) making any remarks about any disputes Executive has had with the Company or the Company Releasees, except (A) as and to the extent may be required by judicial or administrative order or legal process, including if testifying truthfully under oath pursuant to any lawful court order or subpoena, (B) in responding to any request of, or in discussions with, the Board of Directors of the Company or its members or designees or (C) as otherwise required by law (“Required Disclosure”); provided that Executive shall provide to the Company prior notice of a Required Disclosure as far in advance as reasonably practicable under the circumstances (unless prohibited by law), so that the Company may intervene, appear or otherwise object to such Required Disclosure, including by requesting a confidential hearing or confidential treatment, at the Company’s sole expense.  For the avoidance of doubt, remarks by Executive about the real estate markets in which the Company operates shall not be considered derogatory or negative to or about the Company and will not be restricted by the terms of this Section 9(a).

 

(b)                                 Company Non-disparagement.   The Company agrees that the Company and its senior executive officers will not in any way disparage the name or reputation of Executive, including by (i) making any derogatory or negative remarks about Executive or any of the Executive Releasees or (ii) making any remarks about any disputes that the Company or any of the Company Releasees has had with Executive or the Executive Releasees, except in connection with Required Disclosure.  The Company agrees to inform its senior executive officers of the terms and provisions of this Section 9(b) and instruct such persons to comply with the provisions hereof.

 

(c)                                  Standstill.  During the period from the Termination Date until June 5, 2019, without the Company’s prior written consent, Executive shall not, himself or through any affiliate, representative or other person, acting alone or as part of a “group” (within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), directly or indirectly, (i) effect or seek, offer or propose (whether publicly or otherwise) to effect, or cause or participate in or in any way assist any other person to effect or seek, offer or propose (whether publicly or otherwise) to effect or participate in, (A) any acquisition of all or substantially all of the securities (or beneficial ownership thereof) or assets of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (B) any tender or exchange offer or merger or other business combination involving the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (C) any recapitalization, restructuring, liquidation, dissolution or other extraordinary transaction with respect to the Company or any of its subsidiaries, or (D) any “solicitation” of “proxies” (as such terms are used in the proxy rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission) with respect to any securities of the Company, including without limitation to vote any securities of the Company (except in the normal course of Executive voting his securities held in the Company) or to provide or withhold consents or agent designations with respect to any securities of the Company, (ii) form, advise, join or in any way participate in a group in connection with the types of matters set forth in (i) above, (iii) otherwise act, alone or in concert with others, to seek to control or influence the management,

 

9



 

board of directors or policies of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (iv) take any action which might force the Company to make a public announcement regarding any of the types of matters set forth in (i) above, (v) publicly announce any intention, plan or arrangement inconsistent with the foregoing, or (vi) enter into any discussions, arrangements or agreements with any third party relating to any of the foregoing.  Executive also agrees during such period not to request that the Company or its directors, officers, employees or agents, directly or indirectly, amend or waive any provision of this Section 9(c) (including this sentence), except for private requests that would not reasonably be expected to require the Company to make a public announcement regarding such request.

 

(d)           Acknowledgements.  Each party hereby acknowledges and agrees that (i) the party’s obligation to comply with the restrictions set forth in this Section 9 shall be independent of any obligation owed to the party by the other party (whether under this Agreement or otherwise); (ii) no claim by one party against the other party (whether under this Agreement or otherwise) shall constitute a defense to the enforcement by the other party or its affiliates of the restrictions set forth in this Section 9, and (iii) the restrictions imposed under this Section 9 are reasonably necessary for the protection of the each party and its goodwill, confidential information and other legitimate business interests, and do not impose a greater restraint than necessary to provide such protection.

 

10.          Section 409A.  The parties hereby agree that the amounts and benefit payable hereunder are either exempt from or compliant with Section 409A of the Code and the Treasury Regulations and other guidance promulgated thereunder (“Section 409A”), and that the parties shall not, and shall cause their affiliates, successors and assigns not to, take any position inconsistent with such agreement for any reporting purposes, whether internal or external.  This Agreement will be construed and administered to preserve the exemption from Section 409A, and the guidance thereunder of payments that qualify as short-term deferrals pursuant to Treas. Reg. §1.409A-1(b)(4) in respect of the Separation Payments provided for under Section 2.  Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, any payments or benefits due hereunder that constitute non-exempt “deferred compensation” (as defined in Section 409A) that are otherwise payable by reason of Executive’s termination of service will not be paid or provided to Executive until Executive has undergone a “separation from service” (as defined in Section 409A), which the parties agree shall occur on the Termination Date.  If, and only if, Executive is a “specified employee” (as defined in Section 409A) and a payment or benefit provided for in this Agreement would be subject to additional tax under Section 409A if such payment or benefit is paid within six (6) months after Executive’s separation from service, then such payment or benefit shall not be paid (or commence) during the six-month period immediately following Executive’s separation from service, except as provided in the immediately following sentence.  In such an event, any payment or benefits that otherwise would have been made or provided during such six-month period and that would have incurred such additional tax under Section 409A shall instead be paid to Executive in a lump-sum cash payment on the date that is six (6) months after Executive’s separation from service or, if earlier, within five (5) days following the date of Executive’s death.  Executive’s right to receive any installment payments under this Agreement shall be treated as a right to receive a series of separate payments and, accordingly, each such installment payment shall at all times be considered a separate and distinct payment as permitted under Section 409A.  If Executive is

 

10



 

entitled to any reimbursement of expenses or in-kind benefits that are includable in Executive’s federal gross taxable income, the amount of such expenses reimbursable or in-kind benefits provided in any one calendar year shall not affect the expenses eligible for reimbursement or the in-kind benefits to be provided in any other calendar year, and the reimbursement of an eligible expense must be made no later than December 31 of the year after the year in which the expense was incurred. Executive’s right to reimbursement of expenses or in-kind benefits under this Agreement shall not be subject to liquidation or exchange for another benefit.

 

11.          Public Announcement.  Executive shall have the right to review and approve (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) any press release or other public announcement made by the Company in connection with the execution of this Agreement and matters relating to this Agreement; provided, that the announcement(s) set forth on Exhibit B attached hereto are approved by Executive.  Without the consent of the other party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), neither the Company nor Executive shall make any public announcement concerning Executive’s employment with or termination of employment from the Company, provided that neither party shall be precluded from providing truthful testimony in a court of law, truthful statements to a government official, regulatory or law enforcement agency or pursuant to voluntary requests by SEC staff or a properly issued subpoena, or from making any disclosures required by applicable law or stock exchange rules.

 

12.          Miscellaneous Provisions.

 

(a)           Office Items and Pictures.    The Company shall arrange, at the Company’s expense, for the shipping to Executive’s home address of (a) the Executive’s personal items, books, pictures and papers in his office and (b) the various pieces of personal artwork in or around Executive’s office and in the Company’s Parsippany, New Jersey office.

 

(b)           Effective Date.  This Agreement shall become effective (the “Effective Date”) upon the expiration of the revocation period specified in Section 12(j)(v), provided this Agreement has not previously been revoked in whole or in part.

 

(c)           Governing Law; Jurisdiction.  This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and shall be governed by, the laws of the State of New Jersey, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.  The parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of New Jersey for the resolution of any disputes regarding the terms and subject matter of this Agreement.

 

(d)           Waiver of Jury Trial.  EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY).

 

11



 

(e)           Entire Agreement.  Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, this Agreement constitutes and contains the entire agreement and understanding between Executive and the Company concerning the subject matters addressed herein and supersedes and replaces all prior negotiations and all agreements, proposed or otherwise, whether written or oral, concerning the subject matter hereof (including, without limitation, the Employment Agreement and the Award Agreements).

 

(f)            Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, such invalidation shall not affect other provisions of this Agreement and, to this end, the provisions of this Agreement are declared to be severable; provided, however, that if, pursuant to any action brought by Executive, the release set forth in Section 6(a) or any part thereof is declared or adjudged invalid or unenforceable for any reason and, as a result, a claim covered by and released in Section 6(a) (had Section 6(a) or part thereof not been declared or adjudged invalid or unenforceable) is brought by Executive against the Company, the entire Agreement shall be a nullity and all consideration provided in this Agreement shall be repaid by Executive to the Company.

(j)            Acknowledgments.  Executive hereby acknowledges as follows:

 

(i)            he has been advised to consult with an attorney before signing this Agreement;

 

(ii)           he has obtained independent legal advice from an attorney of his choice with respect to this Agreement;

(vi)          in exchange for his waivers, releases and commitments set forth herein, including his waiver and release of all claims arising under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the payments, benefits and other considerations that he is entitled to receive pursuant to this Agreement exceed any payment, benefit or other thing of value to which he would otherwise be entitled, and are just and sufficient consideration for the waivers, releases and commitments set forth herein.

 

(i)            Assignment; Successors and Assigns.  Executive hereby agrees that he may not, directly or indirectly sell or otherwise assign any of his rights, benefits or obligations under this Agreement and that any attempt to do so shall be null and void.  Executive further covenants and agrees that he has not assigned or otherwise transferred any claim released in this Agreement, in whole or party, to any person or entity.  This Agreement and the Release shall inure to the benefit of and shall be binding upon the Company and/or the Company Releasees and all their respective successors and assigns, and any entity with which they may merge or consolidate or to which they may sell all or substantially all their or its assets.
