Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On November 9, 2018, MedEquities Realty Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) through certain of its wholly owned subsidiaries, as landlord, entered into a triple-net master lease agreement (the “Master Lease”) with certain affiliates (collectively, the “New Tenant”) of Creative Solutions in Healthcare, Inc. (“Creative Solutions”), a regional skilled nursing and assisted living facility operator based in Fort Worth, Texas, for the Company’s ten skilled nursing facilities in Texas (the “Texas Ten Portfolio”).

The Master Lease has a 15-year term, which will commence upon receipt of all outstanding regulatory approvals for the transfer of the operations of the facilities from the existing tenant to the New Tenant. In addition, the Master Lease has two five-year tenant renewal options, subject to certain conditions. The initial annual rent under the Master Lease is $7.7 million and will increase each year by 2.0% of the prior year’s annual rent. Under the Master Lease, the New Tenant is responsible for all costs of the Texas Ten Portfolio, including taxes, utilities, insurance, maintenance and capital improvements.

The Master Lease contains customary representations and warranties and financial and other affirmative and negative covenants, including a minimum Rent Coverage Ratio of 1.2x and a minimum Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of 1.0x, each as defined in the Master Lease. The Master Lease also includes customary events of default, in certain cases subject to customary cure periods.

Creative Solutions and its owners have jointly and severally guaranteed all obligations of the New Tenant under the Master Lease, up to 30 months of the then-current rent payable under the Master Lease, pursuant to a guaranty agreement, dated November 9, 2018 (the “Guaranty Agreement”). In addition, the Master Lease requires a security deposit of two months of base rent, which the New Tenant may make in equal installments during the first year of the Master Lease. The Master Lease also is secured by a security interest in substantially all of the assets of the New Tenant, subject to the rights of the New Tenant’s existing secured lender.

The foregoing summaries of the Master Lease and the Guaranty Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Master Lease and the Guaranty Agreement, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

WHEREAS, it is the parties’ intention and understanding that nothing in this Lease, including any rights of Landlord to inspect the Leased Property or gain access to any of Tenant’s information, shall constitute or be deemed to constitute a duty on the part of Landlord to provide for the safety and well-being of any resident of the Facilities, which shall be the sole and exclusive responsibility of Tenant.

4.2The Base Rent for each calendar month during the Term shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord in four (4) equal installments, each in the amount of $160,416.67, on the first four (4) Fridays of such calendar month.  Unless otherwise notified in writing, all payments of Rent shall be made payable to Landlord by wire transfer to the account specified on Exhibit “C” attached hereto, or to such other account as Landlord may designate in writing from time to time.  Tenant may, but shall not be obligated to, authorize Landlord to effect payments of Base Rent by electronic funds transfers (debit entries) initiated by Landlord from Tenant’s bank account as such amounts become due.  

4.3In the event that, during any of the Texas state fiscal years ending, respectively, in 2019, 2020, or 2021, there shall become effective an increase in the SNF Medicaid Rate that, when added to all other such increases that became effective during such three-fiscal year period, represents a meaningful increase above the SNF Medicaid Rate in effect for the state fiscal year ended on September 30, 2018 (a “Triggering Rate Increase”), then, upon Landlord’s request, Landlord and Tenant shall in good faith negotiate the amount, if any, by which Base Rent thereafter shall be increased in order to equitably reflect the increase in the fair market rental value of the Facilities as the result of such Triggering Rate Increase.

4.4In the event that, at any time following the date of this Lease, Tenant shall enter into a QIPP Transaction as to any Facility, then, upon Landlord’s request, Landlord and Tenant shall in good faith negotiate the amount, if any, by which Base Rent thereafter shall be increased in order to equitably reflect the increase in the fair market rental value of the Facilities as the result of such QIPP Transaction.

4.5This Lease is and shall be deemed and construed to be a “pure net” or “triple-net” lease and the Rent specified herein shall be net to Landlord in each year during the Term of this Lease.  Landlord shall have no cost obligation, responsibility or liability whatsoever for repairing, operating, maintaining or owning the Premises during the Term of this Lease.  Tenant does hereby indemnify Landlord against any and all such costs, expenses and obligations. Accordingly, Tenant shall pay Rent to Landlord during the Term free of any deduction, diminution or payment obligation on the part of Landlord for real property taxes and assessments, sales and use taxes, and all other taxes, assessments, utility charges, operating expenses, refurnishings, insurance premiums and any other charge or expense, levy, fine, fee or cost in connection with the Premises and the ownership, operation and maintenance, repair and replacement thereof, including but not limited to all expenses and charges, whether for upkeep, maintenance, operation, repair, refurnishing, refurbishing, restoration, replacement, insurance premiums, taxes, utilities, occupational licenses and other permits and other operating or other charges of a like nature or otherwise, whether known or unknown, ordinary or extraordinary, foreseen or unforeseen, anticipated or unanticipated, and in effect now or enacted hereafter.

4.6Tenant recognizes and acknowledges that Landlord and/or certain beneficial owners of Landlord may from time to time qualify as real estate investment trusts pursuant to Sections 856 et seq. of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and that avoiding (a) the loss of such status, (b) the receipt of any income derived under any provision of this Lease that does not constitute “rents from real property” (in the case of real estate investment trusts), and (c) the imposition of income, penalty or similar taxes (each an “Adverse Event”) is of material concern to Landlord and such beneficial owners. In the event that this Lease or any document contemplated hereby could, in the reasonable opinion of counsel to Landlord, result in or cause an Adverse Event, Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord in negotiating an amendment or modification thereof and shall at the request of Landlord execute and deliver such documents reasonably required to effect such amendment or modification. Any amendment or modification shall be structured so that the economic results to Landlord and Tenant shall be substantially similar to those set forth in this Lease without regard to such amendment or modification, and any such amendment or modification shall not materially increase the obligations of Tenant as identified in this Lease. Without limiting any of Landlord’s other rights pursuant to this provision, Landlord may waive the receipt of any amount payable to Landlord hereunder and such waiver shall constitute an amendment or modification of this Lease with respect to such payment.

4.7Notwithstanding any language contained in this Lease to the contrary, the parties agree and acknowledge that the amount set forth as Base Rent is calculated on the basis of leasing the Leased Property together as a single, inseparable group.  The parties agree that the Base Rent payable hereunder is non-allocable among the Leased Properties. Further notwithstanding any language contained in this Lease to the contrary, the parties further agree

 

10

 

 


 

and acknowledge that it would be impossible to allocate to any one or more of the Leased Properties a divisible portion of the Base Rent.  Further notwithstanding any language contained in this Lease to the contrary, Tenant agrees and acknowledges that the leasing of the Leased Property as an inseparable whole was accepted by Landlord as a special and essential inducement to enter into this transaction, and but for Tenant’s agreement to lease the Leased Property as an inseparable whole, Landlord would not have entered into this Lease.

4.8This Lease is a “true lease” and not a financing lease, capital lease, mortgage, equitable mortgage, deed of trust, trust agreement or other financing or trust arrangement; the economic realities of this Lease are those of a true lease; and the business relationship created by this Lease and any related documents is solely that of a long-term commercial operating lease between Landlord and Tenant and has been entered into by both parties in reliance on the economic and legal bargains contained herein.  In no event shall Tenant or any affiliate of Tenant claim depreciation, amortization or interest deductions as owner of any property for United States federal, state or local tax purposes (except as alterations not financed by Landlord).  The Term is less than the remaining economic life of the Leased Property.

4.9Whenever under the terms of this Lease any sum of money is required to be paid by Tenant in addition to the Base Rent, whether or not such sum is herein designated as additional rent or provision is made for the collection of said sum as additional rent, said sum shall nevertheless be deemed additional rent and shall be collectible as such with the first installment of rent thereafter falling due hereunder.

ARTICLE 5
LATE CHARGES AND INTEREST

5.1Tenant hereby acknowledges that late payment by Tenant to Landlord of Base Rent will cause Landlord to incur costs not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain.  Such costs include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges.  Accordingly, if any installment of Base Rent shall not be received by Landlord when such amount shall be due, then without any requirement for notice to Tenant, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of the portion of such installment of Base Rent that is not paid timely.  The parties hereby agree that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs Landlord will incur by reason of late payment by Tenant.  Acceptance of such late charge by Landlord shall in no event constitute a waiver of Tenant’s default or breach with respect to any unpaid overdue amounts, nor prevent Landlord from exercising any of the other rights and remedies granted under this Lease, at law or in equity.

5.2Any Base Rent or other amounts payable by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease that are not paid on the due date shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the due date until paid.

ARTICLE 6
PAYMENT OF TAXES AND ASSESSMENTS

6.1Subject to Section 6.2, Tenant will pay, thirty (30) days before any fine, penalty, interest or cost may be added thereto for the non-payment thereof (or sooner if elsewhere herein required), all taxes assessed or levied by government (including but not limited to real estate taxes, ad valorem taxes, school taxes, assessments and personal property, intangible and use taxes, if any, imposed upon the Leased Property), assessments, licenses and permit fees, bed taxes, charges for public utilities imposed upon the Leased Property, and all governmental charges, general and special, ordinary and extraordinary, foreseen and unforeseen, of any kind and nature whatsoever that during the Term may be assessed, levied, confirmed, imposed upon or become due and payable out of or in respect of, or become a lien on the Leased Property and/or Landlord’s Personal Property or any part thereof (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Taxes and Assessments”).

6.2Tenant shall pay to Landlord (or, if so directed by Landlord, to Landlord’s lender), on the 4th Friday of each calendar month during the Term, an amount equal to 1/12th of the anticipated Taxes and Assessments for the then current calendar year.  Landlord will apply all such payments (which shall not bear interest) to the payment of the Taxes and Assessments as and when they become due.  If at any time the payments theretofore paid by Tenant shall be insufficient for the payment of the Taxes and Assessments, Tenant, within ten (10) Business Days after Landlord’s written demand therefor, shall pay the amount of the deficiency to Landlord or Landlord’s Lender, as the case may be.  If Landlord fails to make any payment for which payments are sufficiently held by Landlord, and such failure results in a penalty or imposition payable by Landlord or Tenant with respect to the Premises, Landlord shall be responsible for paying such penalty or imposition.  If such collected amounts are in excess of the Taxes and Assessments due, then (i) such excess shall be applied to the Taxes and Assessments for the next calendar year, or (ii) if in the final calendar year of the Term, such excess shall be refunded to Tenant within ten (10) Business Days of the expiration of the Term.

6.3Tenant shall prepare and timely file all required personal property declaration forms for the personal property at the Premises, including, without limitation, the Equipment and Tenant’s Personal Property, and shall pay on or before the due date thereof, all personal property taxes directly to the governing authorities, it being understood and agreed that personal property taxes shall not be deemed to be included in the Taxes and Assessments to be deposited with and paid by Landlord under Section 7(b).  Within thirty (30) days after the due date thereof, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord receipts (if available from the taxing authority) or other evidence of payment of all personal property taxes paid by Tenant.

6.4Any Taxes and Assessments relating to a fiscal period of any authority, a part of which is included within the Term and a part of which is included in a period of time before or after the Term, shall be adjusted pro rata between Landlord and Tenant and each party shall be responsible for its pro rata share of any such Taxes and Assessments.

6.5Nothing herein contained shall require Tenant to pay income taxes assessed against Landlord, or capital levy, franchise, estate, succession or inheritance taxes of Landlord.

6.6If any income, profits or revenue tax shall be levied, assessed or imposed upon the income, profits or revenue arising from Base Rent payable hereunder, partially or totally in lieu

 

12

 

 


 

of or as a substitute for real estate or personal property taxes imposed upon the Leased Property, or otherwise, then Tenant shall be responsible for the payment of such tax.  In addition, Tenant shall pay to Landlord any and all state and local sales tax, use tax, franchise tax (including the Texas “margin tax”) and/or gross receipts tax imposed on any payment deemed to be Rent under this Lease or under the Laws and rules and regulations imposing such taxes.  For the avoidance of doubt, Tenant will pay directly to Landlord all state and local sales tax, use tax, franchise tax and/or gross receipts tax within thirty (30) days after presentation of invoice or written direction of Landlord and Landlord will remit the same to the appropriate governmental entity.

ARTICLE 7
[Reserved]

(a)(i) name Tenant as the insured and Landlord and Landlord’s Lenders as additional insureds, as their interests may appear, and (ii) include primary coverage in favor of all additional insureds (and with provisions that any other insurance carried by any additional insured or Landlord shall be non-contributing and that naming Landlord and the additional parties listed above in this Section as additional insureds shall not negate any right Landlord or such parties would have had as claimants under the policy if not so designated); provided that the business interruption insurance required pursuant to this Article 9 shall name Landlord and Landlord’s Lenders as loss payees.

(b)provide that the beneficial interest of Landlord in such policies shall be fully transferable;

(c)provide that they shall not be canceled, terminated, reduced or materially modified without at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Landlord;

(e)provide that they are being issued on a primary, non-contributory basis, and with respect to any umbrella or “excess coverage” policy, such shall specifically provide that it is primary vis-a-vis any insurance policies carried by Landlord or any of Landlord’s affiliates; and

(f)be subject only to such deductibles or retention amounts as shall reasonably be acceptable to Landlord.

9.4An original Certificate of Insurance and Evidence of Property Coverage for all insurance policies required by this Article shall be delivered to Landlord at least five (5) days prior to the Commencement Date and replacement Certificates of Insurance and Evidence of Property Coverage at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of expiration.  From time-to-time immediately after Landlord’s request thereof, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord copies of all insurance policies then being carried by Tenant pursuant to these insurance requirements.

(a)The aggregate of the cost of all taxes and assessments due for such twelve (12) month period;

(b)The cost of all insurance premiums for insurance required to be carried by Tenant for such twelve (12) month period; and

(c)The aggregate of the amount of the Base Rent for such twelve (12) month period.

All proceeds of any business interruption insurance shall be applied, first, to the payment of any and all Base Rent payments for such twelve (12) month period; second, to the payment of any taxes and assessments and insurance deposits required for such twelve (12) month period; and, thereafter, after all necessary repairing, rebuilding, restoring or replacing has been completed as required by the pertinent provisions of this Lease and the pertinent sections of any mortgage/deed of trust/senior lease, any remaining balance of such proceeds shall be paid over to Tenant.

9.6From time to time, Landlord or any mortgagee/beneficiary/senior lessor may reasonably require Tenant to change the amount or type of insurance, or to add or substitute additional coverages, required to be maintained by Tenant hereunder.

9.7In the event the amount of any casualty insurance proceeds exceed One Hundred Fifty Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($150,000), such insurance proceeds as may be paid to Tenant and Landlord shall be deposited with Landlord to be held and disbursed for the repairing, rebuilding, restoring or replacing of the Demised Premises or any portion thereof, or any improvements from time to time situated thereon or therein, subject to the pertinent provisions of any Mortgage and in accordance with the provisions of this Lease.

No sums shall be paid by Landlord from such proceeds toward such repairing, rebuilding, restoring or replacing unless it shall be first made to appear to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord that the amount of money necessary to provide for any such repairing, rebuilding, restoring or replacing (according to any plans or specifications that may be adopted therefor) in excess of the amount received from any such insurance policies, if any, has been expended or provided by Tenant for such repairing, rebuilding, restoring or replacing, and that the amount received from such insurance policies is sufficient to complete such work.  In the event there is any amount required in excess of the amount received from such insurance policies, Tenant shall deposit such excess funds with Landlord so that the total amount available will be sufficient to complete such repairing, rebuilding, restoring or replacing in accordance with the provisions of any Mortgage and any plans and specifications submitted in connection therewith, free from any liens or encumbrances of any kind whatsoever. The funds held by Landlord shall be disbursed as needed for completion of the work, with each disbursement to be made only upon presentment of

architect’s or general contractor’s certificates, waivers of lien (including conditional waivers, as appropriate), contractor’s sworn statements, and other evidence of cost as may be reasonably required by Landlord or any Mortgagee.

ARTICLE 10
LANDLORD’S OR MORTGAGEE’S RIGHT TO PERFORM

10.1Should Tenant fail to pay any amounts or perform any of its covenants herein agreed to be paid or performed, and such failure continues beyond any applicable cure periods set forth in this Lease with respect thereto, Landlord may, but shall not be required to, make such payment or perform such covenants, and all sums so expended by Landlord thereon shall immediately be payable by Tenant to Landlord, with interest thereon at the Default Rate, from date thereof until paid, and in addition, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for Landlord’s reasonable expenses in enforcing or performing such covenants, including reasonable attorney’s fees.  Any such costs or expenses incurred or payments made by Landlord shall be payable by Tenant as additional rent and shall be collectible as such by Landlord.

10.2Performance of, and/or payment made, to discharge said Tenant’s obligations shall be optional with Landlord and such performance and payment shall in no way constitute a waiver of, or a limitation upon, Landlord’s other rights hereunder.

10.3Tenant hereby acknowledges and agrees that any Mortgagee shall have the right but not the obligation to perform any covenants and pay any amounts that Tenant has failed to perform or pay as required under the terms of this Lease but only to the extent such Mortgagee is entitled under the terms of its Mortgage.

ARTICLE 11
REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE; CASUALTY

11.1Throughout the Term, Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, will keep and maintain, or cause to be kept and maintained, the Leased Property (including without limitation the sidewalks, alleyways, passageways, vacant land, parking spaces, curb cuts, and curbs adjoining the Demised Premises) in good order and condition (ordinary wear and tear excepted subject to Tenant’s obligation to repair and replace the same in accordance with the terms of this Lease) without waste, and Tenant will make or cause to be made, as and when the same shall become necessary, all structural and nonstructural, exterior and interior, replacing, repairing and restoring necessary to comply with the above requirements.  All replacing, repairing and restoring required of Tenant shall be new and (in the reasonable opinion of Landlord), to the extent reasonably available, of equivalent quality to the property being repaired or replaced, and shall be in compliance with all standards and requirements of law, licenses and municipal ordinances necessary to operate the Demised Premises for the Permitted Use.  Any items of Landlord’s Personal Property that are uneconomical to repair shall be replaced by new items or newly refurbished items that, to the extent reasonably available, are of equivalent quality to the Landlord’s Personal Property being repaired or replaced and in good working order, and all replacement items shall become part of the Landlord’s Personal Property.  No items of Landlord’s Personal Property shall be removed from the Demised Premises except in connection

 

17

 

 


 

with repair or replacement of such items. In performing any such repairs, Tenant shall comply in all respects with Section 14.1, and shall, upon request from Landlord, deliver to Landlord evidence satisfactory to Landlord of such compliance, including, without limitation, copies of lien waivers and/or paid invoices for all such repairs.

11.2Replacement Reserve.

(a)Tenant shall establish and maintain in effect throughout the Term hereof a cash reserve (the “Replacement Reserve”) in an amount equal to $500 per licensed bed for each of the Facilities, which amount shall be funded by Tenant as hereinafter set forth and held by Landlord in a cash account on its books and records, for the payment of costs and expenses associated with capital improvements, repairs and replacements of every kind and nature to be performed at the Facilities (“Capital Improvements”), and for no other purpose. During the initial two (2) Lease Years, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, simultaneously with each of the four installments of Base Rent to be paid during each calendar month, and in addition to all other amounts due hereunder, an amount equal to one-ninety-sixth (1/96th) of the required Replacement Reserve to be deposited into the Replacement Reserve. On or before the last day of each Lease Year, Tenant shall deposit into the Replacement Reserve such additional amounts as may be necessary to replenish any amounts drawn from the Replacement Reserve during such Lease Year.  Disbursements shall be made from the Replacement Reserve only in accordance with this paragraph.  So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and no event or circumstance exists which, with the giving of notice, the passage of time or both, would become an Event of Default, Landlord shall disburse to Tenant from the Replacement Reserve (but in no event to exceed amounts on deposit in the Replacement Reserve), within ten (10) business days after Tenant’s written request (and provision to Landlord of any supporting documentation reasonably required by Landlord), the costs and expenses incurred installing or constructing any Capital Improvements, provided such written notice includes a detailed description of the Capital Improvements installed or constructed together with an invoice for the work done. With each draw request, Tenant will deliver to Landlord (i) a certification by Tenant that the work for which the draw to be funded has been completed in accordance with applicable legal requirements, and (ii) such additional supporting evidence as may be requested by Landlord in its reasonable judgment, including such items as invoices, receipts or other evidence verifying the cost of such work, together with affidavits and/or lien waivers from those providing work, materials or supplies for such portion of the work (provided it shall not be a requirement that Tenant shall have made any payment on such invoice, unless necessary to procure the required lien waiver). Tenant will additionally furnish to Landlord evidence that all necessary or required approvals or consents from governmental authorities have been obtained. In authorizing any disbursement from the Replacement Reserve, Landlord shall be entitled to rely on Tenant’s written request and supporting documentation without any inquiry into the accuracy, validity or contestability of any such amount or the nature or necessity of the materials provided or the work performed. Landlord may, at any time and from time to time, but shall have no obligation to, make or cause to be made inspections of any Facility.  In the event that any inspection report from any such inspection reasonably recommends that Capital Improvements are required or anticipated that are the obligation of Tenant in accordance the terms of this Lease, Landlord shall provide Tenant with a written description of such Capital Improvements and Tenant shall then complete those Capital Improvements to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord as expeditiously

 

18

 

 


 

as is reasonably practicable under the circumstances after the receipt of such description from Landlord.

(b)It is specifically hereby stipulated and agreed that notwithstanding the preceding provisions of this Section 11.2, the management, uses and disbursement procedures and requirements of the Replacement Reserve may be taken over by a Facility Mortgagee, and Tenant agrees to negotiate in good faith any changes to this Section 11.2 as may be reasonably requested by a Facility Mortgagee in such event and to pay the reasonable costs of the Facility Mortgagee in processing draw requests.

(c)Tenant shall provide Landlord with an engineering or property condition report (at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord in Landlord’s sole discretion) with respect to each Facility, not more than twenty-four (24) months nor less than eighteen (18) months prior to the end of the Initial Term (unless Tenant has elected a renewal option pursuant to Article 3) or (if Tenant has elected a renewal option pursuant to Article 3) the last renewal Term elected by Tenant pursuant to Article 3.  If (i) any such property condition report lists replacements of the roof or HVAC systems as being required on the Demised Premises during the remainder of the applicable Term, or (ii) an alteration or repair to the Demised Premises is required by any applicable governmental authority during the last eighteen (18) months of the applicable Term, then, Tenant promptly and expeditiously shall cause such alteration or repair to be performed and, provided such alteration or repair is the result of normal wear and tear and not due to neglect or waste by Tenant, the cost of such alteration or repair, as the case may be, will be apportioned between Landlord and Tenant with Tenant’s share equal to the cost of such alteration or repair, as the case may be, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the remainder of the Term from the time such alteration or repair needs to be made pursuant to clauses (i) and (ii) of this paragraph, and the denominator of which shall be the anticipated useful life of such alteration or repair, as the case may be.  If, after any such apportionment, any renewal Term is exercised in accordance with Article 3, the cost of such alteration or repair will be re-apportioned accordingly.  If such alteration or repair is due to neglect or waste by Tenant, Tenant will bear the full cost of such alteration or repair, including any reasonable costs incurred by Landlord to ensure that the alteration or repair is completed, and such alteration or repair shall be made in accordance with all applicable requirements of this Lease.

(d)Provided that no Event of Default exists at the expiration of this Lease, and Tenant has paid all sums to Landlord which Tenant is required to pay prior to the expiration of this Lease and there is not otherwise any term, covenant or condition which is required to be performed by Tenant as of the expiration of this Lease (including, without limitation, any alteration or repair required pursuant to Section 11.2(c)), then any portion of the Replacement Reserve then remaining on deposit with Landlord shall be returned to Tenant after delivery of exclusive possession of the Demised Premises to Landlord.  In the event of the sale of the Demised Premises and the purchaser’s assumption of Landlord’s obligations hereunder, Landlord shall have the right to transfer the Replacement Reserve to the purchaser, and Landlord shall thereupon be deemed to be released by Tenant from all liability for the return of such Replacement Reserve, and Tenant agrees to look solely to the new landlord for the return of said Replacement Reserve.  It is agreed that the provisions hereof shall apply to every transfer or

 

19

 

 


 

assignment made of the Replacement Reserve to a new landlord.  Tenant further covenants that it will not assign or encumber the monies deposited herein as the Replacement Reserve and that neither Landlord nor its successors or assigns shall be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance.

All damages awarded for such Taking under the power of eminent domain shall be the property of Landlord, whether such damages shall be awarded as compensation for diminution in value of the leasehold or the fee of the Facility Property. Tenant shall be entitled, if provided by law, to pursue and receive a separate award from the condemning authority for loss of Tenant’s interest in the Facility Property, but only if the award to which Landlord would have otherwise been entitled had Tenant not received or participated in such award, is not diminished thereby, directly or indirectly, and, further, in no event shall Tenant be entitled to an apportionment of any condemnation award or settlement that Landlord would have been entitled to receive with respect to such Taking but for the above provision and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any and all right, title and interest Tenant may have in any and all such awards or settlements.

Tenant shall be entitled, if provided by law, to pursue and receive a separate award from the condemning authority for loss of Tenant’s interest in the Facility Property, but only if the award to which Landlord would have otherwise been entitled had Tenant not received or participated in such award, is not diminished thereby, directly or indirectly, and, further, in no event shall Tenant be entitled to an apportionment of any condemnation award or settlement that Landlord would have been entitled to receive with respect to such Taking but for the above provision and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any and all right, title and interest Tenant may have in any and all such awards or settlements.  In the event of a partial condemnation that does not result in any termination of this Lease with respect to the Facility Property, the Base Rent payable under Section 4.1 hereof shall be proportionally adjusted based upon the number of licensed and certified beds lost to the

 

23

 

 


 

number of licensed and certified beds authorized in the Facility Property immediately prior to the Taking.

16.3In the event this Lease is terminated as to any Facility Property in accordance with Section 16.1 or Section 16.2, the Base Rent shall be reduced by an amount equal to (i) the Base Rent immediately prior to the date of notice of such Taking, multiplied by (ii) the ratio of the EBITDARM attributable to such Facility Property for the twelve (12) month period immediately prior to such Taking to the aggregate EBITDARM attributable to all of the Facilities for the twelve (12) month period immediately prior to such Taking. The termination of this Lease due to a Taking is the result of circumstances beyond the control of Landlord and Tenant and the parties hereto affirm that, except for such specific isolated situation, this Lease is intended to be a single indivisible lease.

ARTICLE 17

(a)It is the responsibility of Tenant to be fully acquainted with the nature, in all respects, of the Leased Property, including (but not by way of limitation); the soil and geology thereof, the waters thereof and thereunder; the drainage thereof; the manner of construction and the condition and state of repair and lack of repair of all improvements of every nature; the nature, provisions and effect of all health, fire, zoning, building, subdivision and all other use and occupancy laws, ordinances, and regulations applicable thereto; and the nature and extent of the rights of others with respect thereto, whether by way of reversion, easement, right of way, prescription, adverse possession, profit, servitude, lease, tenancy, lien, encumbrance, license, contract, reservation, condition, right of re-entry, possibility of reverter, sufferance or otherwise.  Landlord makes no representation as to, and has no duty to be informed with respect to, any of the matters set forth in the preceding sentence.  Tenant hereby accepts the Leased Property as suitable and adequate in all respects for the conduct of the business and the uses of the Leased Property as contemplated under the provisions of this Lease.

(b)Tenant expressly covenants and agrees that it hereby takes this Lease and the leasehold estate hereby established upon and subject to Landlord’s title as it exists on the date hereof (but subject to Landlord’s covenant of quiet enjoyment in Section 33.1 hereof), including all rights, rights of way, easements, profits, servitudes, reservations, restrictions, conditions,

 

24

17.3Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Lease, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, and the obligations of Tenant hereunder shall not be released, discharged or otherwise affected, by reason of:  (i) any damage to or destruction of the Leased Property or any part thereof or the taking of the Leased Property or any part thereof by condemnation, requisition or otherwise for any reason, (ii) any restriction or prevention of or interference with any use of the Leased Property or any part thereof, including any restriction or interference with or circumstance that prevents the use of the Leased Property as contemplated by Section 8.1, (iii) any frustration of Tenant’s purposes hereunder, (iv) any claim that Tenant has or might have against Landlord, or (v) any other occurrence whatsoever, whether similar or dissimilar to the foregoing.

17.4Without limiting the generality of Section 17.3, Tenant shall continue to pay Base Rent and to perform its obligations under this Lease even if Tenant claims that Landlord has breached any obligation under this Lease or that Tenant has been damaged by any act or omission of Landlord. Therefore, Tenant shall at all times remain obligated to fully and faithfully pay and perform all its obligations under this Lease, without any right of set-off, counterclaim, abatement, deduction, or any other reduction. Tenant’s sole right to recover damages against Landlord by reason of a breach or alleged breach of Landlord’s obligations under this Lease shall be to pursue, prove and subsequently be awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction a judgment for such damages in a separate action against Landlord.

ARTICLE 18

18.2Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 18.1, Landlord agrees that Tenant shall have the right to encumber, collaterally assign, pledge or hypothecate Tenant’s interest in the leasehold estate created by this Lease without Landlord’s prior written consent so long as such encumbrance, assignment or pledge (hereinafter, a “Leasehold Mortgage”) is in favor of a real estate investment trust, bank, saving and loan association, investment bank, insurance company, trust company, commercial credit corporation, pension plan, pension fund or pension advisory firm, mutual fund, government entity or plan that satisfies the Eligibility Requirements (defined below).

27

 

 


 

Premises (including to one or more Affiliates of Landlord).  Tenant agrees to cooperate reasonably with Landlord in connection with any such assignment, and agrees to execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered, as applicable) to Landlord any other instruments and documents requested by Landlord in connection with the assignment, including any commercially reasonable subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement that may be requested by Landlord’s assignee’s lenders.  From and after the effective date of any such Landlord assignment and notice thereof to Tenant, Landlord shall be automatically released (without need for any further agreement or other document) from any liability thereafter arising with respect to the Demised Properties covered thereby.

Without limiting the foregoing, Landlord shall have the right to do any of the following:

(a)Terminate this Lease and all rights of Tenant hereunder, provided that a Proper Successor has been designated, by giving Tenant ten (10) days written notice of such election to terminate, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Leased Property to the Proper Successor, and if Tenant fails to surrender the Leased Property, Landlord may, without prejudice to any other remedy which Landlord may have, expel or remove Tenant and any other person who may be occupying the Demised Premises, or any part thereof. In such event Landlord may seek such damages and remedies as are available at law or in equity for Tenant’s breach of this Lease, including the recovery from Tenant of the following:

(i)the worth at the time of award of any unpaid Rent which has been earned at the time of such termination; plus

(v)at Landlord’s election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by applicable law.

All Rent shall be computed on the basis on the amounts thereof payable on the date of Tenant’s default, as the same are to be adjusted thereafter as contemplated by this Lease. As used in subparagraphs “(i)” and “(ii)”, above, the “worth at the time of award” is computed by allowing interest in the per annum amount equal to the Default Rate.  As used in subparagraph (iii), above, the “worth at the time of award” is computed by discounting such amount at the Prime Rate.

21.2Enter upon and take possession of the Leased Property and expel or remove Tenant and any other Person who may be occupying the Demised Premises or any part thereof as well as any and all property, with or without terminating this Lease, and any property may be removed and stored in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of and for the account of Tenant; and Landlord shall be obligated to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages by reletting the Leased Property; and Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord in connection with any proposed transfer to any Proper Successor to transfer operations; and Tenant covenants and agrees to pay Landlord, on demand, any cost or expense incurred by Landlord in

 

31

 

 


 

connection with reletting the Leased Property or any deficiency in Base Rent that may arise by reason of such reletting, including, without limitation, brokerage fees, advertising expenses, preparation expenses, alterations and repairs to the Leased Property, legal expenses, and the cost of performing such of Tenant’s obligations as Landlord determines to be necessary and reasonable.  Landlord’s obligation to mitigate Landlord’s damages shall be subject to the following conditions: (i) Landlord shall be required to only use reasonable efforts to mitigate damages by re-letting the Demised Premises as a unitary whole, which efforts shall not exceed those that a commercially reasonable landlord generally uses to re-let multi-site (10 or more) portfolios of healthcare facilities that are treated as a single premises under a unitary lease that has been terminated and sought to be re-let as a single premises under a new unitary lease; (ii) notwithstanding clause (i), Landlord shall not be deemed to have failed to mitigate as to any un-let portion of the Demised Premises if Landlord or its affiliates re-let the Demised Premises in individual sites or in smaller groups of sites which Landlord may in its discretion deem appropriate; (iii) any failure to mitigate as described herein with respect to any period of time shall only reduce the Base Rent and additional rent to which Landlord is entitled hereunder by the actual sums collected for the same components of fixed rent and additional rent from other tenants during such period; any amounts collected as a result of any re-letting shall be applied first to the payment of any costs and expenses of such re-letting, including brokerage fees, attorneys’ fees, and the costs of any alterations and repairs necessary to re-let the Demised Premises; and (iv) in no event shall Tenant be entitled to any excess rental received by Landlord over and above charges damages otherwise chargeable to Tenant. Without limiting the foregoing, recognizing that the future value of Facility Properties comprising the Demised Premises depends in part on the terms of new leases therefor, including the rental rates stated therein, Landlord’s rejection of a prospective replacement tenant for the Demised Premises or any part thereof based on an offer of rentals below the greater of the fair market value rent or the rates provided in this Lease, or otherwise containing substantive terms less favorable than those contained herein, shall not give rise to a claim by Tenant that Landlord failed to mitigate Landlord’s damages.

21.3In the event that Landlord shall elect to so relet, rentals received by Landlord from such reletting shall be applied: first, to the payment of any indebtedness other than rent due hereunder from Tenant to Landlord; second, to the payment of any cost of such reletting; third, to the payment of the cost of any alterations and repairs to the Leased Property; fourth, to the payment of rent due and unpaid hereunder; and the remainder, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future rent as the same may become due and payable hereunder. Should that portion of such rentals received from such reletting during any month, which is applied to the payment of rent hereunder, be less than the rent payable during that month by Tenant hereunder, then Tenant shall pay such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid in full immediately upon demand. Tenant shall also pay to Landlord, as soon as ascertained, any costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in such reletting or in making such alterations and repairs not covered by the rentals received from such reletting. Notwithstanding any election by Landlord to re-take possession of the Leased Property pursuant to this provision, Landlord may, at any time thereafter, upon written notice to Tenant, terminate this Lease in all respects and exercise other remedies available at law or in equity or herein relating to such termination as a result of a Tenant default.

 

32

 

 


 

21.4Enter upon the Demised Premises and take such actions as may be required of Tenant to cure the complained of default; and Tenant covenants and agrees to reimburse Landlord on demand for any expenses, direct or indirect, which Landlord may incur in thus effecting compliance with Tenant’s obligations under this Lease.

21.5Pursue change of ownership applications and proceedings with regulatory authorities regulating the licenses and any Medicare or Medicaid Contracts for the applicable Facility and its Permitted Use.

21.6Before or after repossession of the Leased Property pursuant to Section 21.2, and whether or not this Lease has been terminated, Landlord shall have the right (but shall be under no obligation) to relet any portion of the Leased Property to such tenant or tenants, for such term or terms (which may be greater or less than the remaining balance of the Term), for such rent, or such conditions (which may include concessions or free rent) and for such uses, as Landlord, in its absolute discretion, may determine, and Landlord may collect and receive any rents payable by reason of such reletting.  Tenant agrees to pay Landlord, immediately upon demand, all expenses incurred by Landlord in obtaining possession and in reletting any of the Leased Property, including fees, commissions, tenant improvements, alterations, repairs, and costs of attorneys, architects, agents and brokers.

21.7Landlord may pursue all of its legal and equitable remedies, including specific performance.

21.8No re-entry or taking possession of the Leased Property by Landlord pursuant to Section 21.2 or otherwise shall be construed as an election to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention be given to Tenant or unless the termination thereof be decreed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any reletting without termination by Landlord because of any default of Tenant, Landlord may at any time after such reletting elect to terminate this Lease for any such default.

 

ARTICLE 22
CUMULATIVE REMEDIES OF LANDLORD

22.1The specific remedies to which Landlord may resort under the terms of this Lease are cumulative and are not intended to be exclusive of any other remedies or means of redress to which Landlord may be lawfully entitled in case of any breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any provision or provisions of this Lease.  The failure of Landlord to insist, in any one or more cases, upon the strict performance of any of the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions or agreements of this Lease, or to exercise any option herein contained, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of any such term, covenant, condition, provisions, agreement or option.

ARTICLE 23
SECURITY FOR RENT

 

33

 

 


 

23.1Landlord shall have a first lien paramount to all others on every right and interest of Tenant in and to this Lease, and, except for any lien in favor of a Mortgagee, on Tenant’s furnishings, equipment, fixtures, accounts receivable, books and records. Tenant hereby consents to Landlord filing such financing statements and other documents reasonably required to perfect such security interest.  Such lien is granted for the purpose of securing the payments of Base Rent, charges, penalties, and damages herein covenanted to be paid by Tenant, and for the purpose of securing the performance of all of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease.  Such lien shall be in addition to all rights to Landlord given and provided by law. This Lease shall constitute a security agreement under the Uniform Commercial Code granting Landlord a security interest in any furnishings, equipment, fixtures, and Tenant shall execute such other instruments and financing statements as Landlord may request to evidence or perfect said security interest.

23.2Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of Section 23.1 of this Lease to the contrary, Landlord hereby agrees that it will subordinate its security interest in Tenant’s accounts receivable to any secured lender of Tenant that is providing working capital to Tenant in connection with Tenant’s operation of the Demised Premises (“Tenant’s Accounts Receivable Financing”), provided that Landlord’s consent and subordination to Tenant’s Accounts Receivable Financing shall be subject to the following conditions precedent: (a) Tenant’s Accounts Receivable Financing shall be from a bona fide third party lender; and (b) Tenant’s Accounts Receivable lender shall execute and deliver to Landlord an intercreditor and subordination agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Landlord.

23.3Tenant shall deposit with Landlord an amount equal to two (2) months of Base Rent (as increased in accordance with this Section, the “Security Deposit”) as security for the faithful performance and observance by Tenant of the terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease.  Such Security Deposit may be made by Tenant in 48 equal installments during the initial Lease Year, with each such installment to be paid simultaneously with each of the four installments of Base Rent to be paid during each calendar month of the initial Lease Year.  On the first day of the second (2nd) Lease Year, and on the first day of each Lease Year thereafter, Tenant shall deposit with Landlord the additional amount necessary to increase the Security Deposit to an amount equal to two (2) monthly payments of Base Rent for the upcoming Lease Year and any such deposit shall become part of the Security Deposit.  It is agreed that upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord may use, apply or retain the whole or any part of the Security Deposit to the extent required for the payment of any Base Rent or any other sum as to which Tenant is in default or for any sums which Landlord may expend or may be required to expend by reason of Tenant’s default in respect of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease, including but not limited to, any damage or deficiency in the reletting of the Demised Premises, whether such damage or deficiency accrued before or after summary proceedings or other re-entry by Landlord.  In the event Landlord uses or applies the whole or any part of the Security Deposit, Tenant shall replenish the Security Deposit to its original sum (as increased in accordance with this Section) within ten (10) days after written notice from Landlord to Tenant of the sum due.  Tenant shall be in default under this Lease if the amount due is not paid within the required time period.  Provided that no Event of Default exists at the expiration of this Lease, and Tenant has paid all sums to Landlord which Tenant is required to pay prior to the expiration of this Lease and there is not otherwise any term, covenant or condition which is required to be

 

34

 

 


 

performed by Tenant as of the expiration of this Lease (including, without limitation, any alteration or repair required pursuant to Section 11.2(c)), then any portion of the Security Deposit then remaining on deposit with Landlord shall be returned to Tenant after delivery of exclusive possession of the Demised Premises to Landlord.  In the event of the sale of the Demised Premises and the purchaser’s assumption of Landlord’s obligations hereunder, Landlord shall have the right to transfer the Security Deposit to the purchaser, Landlord shall thereupon be deemed to be released by Tenant from all liability for the return of such Security Deposit, and Tenant agrees to look solely to the new landlord for the return of said Security Deposit.  It is agreed that the provisions hereof shall apply to every transfer or assignment made of the Security Deposit to a new landlord.  Tenant further covenants that it will not assign or encumber the monies deposited herein as security and that neither Landlord nor its successors or assigns shall be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance.

23.4Tenant hereby assigns and transfers to Landlord all right, title and interest, whether now existing or hereafter arising, in and to any and all security interests granted to Tenant pursuant to any QIPP Agreement (the “Assigned Collateral”).  Additionally, in connection with any QIPP Transaction hereafter entered into by Tenant, Tenant shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause each QIPP Subtenant to grant to Tenant a security interest and lien on every right and interest of such QIPP Subtenant in and to its sublease of such Facility, and in and to its personal property and intangible property, to secure its obligations under its sublease.  Tenant shall assign to Landlord any such security interest granted by each QIPP Subtenant to secure Tenant’s obligations under this Master Lease.

ARTICLE 24
INDEMNIFICATION

24.1Tenant shall defend, protect, indemnify and save harmless Landlord, its Affiliates, and their respective partners, members, managers, officers, stockholders, trustees, directors and employees (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”), from and against and shall reimburse such parties for:

(a)any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, penalties, costs, charges, judgments, claims, causes of actions, suits, damages and expenses (collectively, “Claims”) that

(i)arise from or under this Lease or Tenant’s use, occupancy and operations of, in or about the Premises during the Term, or

(ii)arise from the ownership, operation, maintenance, management, use, regulation, development, expansion or construction of the Facilities and/or provision of health services from or at the Facilities during the Term of this Lease, including without limitation, Claims of Health Care Regulatory Agencies and Third Party Payors, Recoupment Claims, Claim by or through patients, residents, customers of such Facilities or services, and Professional Liability and General Liability (“PLGL”) Claims, in each case which are attributable to occurrences during the Term that the Facilities are leased by Tenant (or any period prior to the Term during which the Facilities, or any portion thereof, are managed by the Tenant

 

35

 

 


 

or any Subtenant), provided, however, that with respect to PLGL Claims, such indemnification shall not extend to unaffiliated third party beneficiaries, or

(iii)that may be imposed upon or incurred or paid by or asserted against the Indemnified Parties by reason of or in connection with (A) any accident, injury, death or damage to any person or property occurring in; on or about the Premises or any portion thereof or any adjacent street, alley, sidewalk, curb, or passageway; (B) any changes, Alterations, repairs and anything done in, on or about the Premises or any part thereof in connection with such changes, Alterations and repairs; (C) the use, non-use, occupation, condition, operation, maintenance or management of the Premises or any part thereof, or any adjacent street, alley, sidewalk, curb, or passageway; (D) any negligent act on the part of Tenant or any of its agents, contractors, servants, employees, space tenants, licensees, assignees, or subtenants; (E) the performance of any labor or services or the furnishing of any materials or other property in respect of the Premises or any part thereof, (F) any violation by Tenant (or by any agent, contractor, or licensee then upon or using the Premises) of any provision of this Lease (beyond the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods) or any breach of any law, regulation, or ordinance by Tenant or its agents, concessionaires, contractors, servants, vendors, materialmen or suppliers; or (G) the condition of the Premises, or of any Buildings or other structures now or hereafter situated thereon, or the fixtures or personal property thereon or therein, to the extent such events described in the foregoing clauses (A) through (G) occur during the Term (excluding from this clause (G) any environmental or other condition of the Premises existing on the Commencement Date); and

(b)all costs, expenses and liabilities incurred, including actual, customary and reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements through and including appellate proceedings, in or in connection with any of such Claims.  

24.2If any action or proceeding shall be brought against any of the Indemnified Parties by reason of any such Claims, Tenant, upon notice from any of the Indemnified Parties, shall resist and defend such action or proceeding, at its sole cost and expense by counsel to be selected by Tenant but otherwise satisfactory to such Indemnified Party in its reasonable discretion.  Tenant or its counsel shall keep each Indemnified Party fully apprised at all times of the status of such defense.  If Tenant shall fail to defend such action or proceeding, such an Indemnified Party may retain its own attorneys to defend or assist in defending any such claim, action or proceeding and Tenant shall pay the actual, customary and reasonable fees and disbursements of such attorneys.  The terms and provisions of this Article 24 shall not in any way be affected by the absence of insurance covering such occurrence or claim or by the failure or refusal of any insurance company to perform any obligation on its part.  The provisions of this Article 24 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.  Neither Landlord nor Tenant shall enter into any settlement of a Claim which would impose a monetary liability on the other party, without the written consent of such other party.  Any insurance proceeds actually received by an Indemnified Party shall be credited against the indemnification otherwise to be provided herein.  An Indemnified Party shall give prompt written notice to Tenant of any Claim for which it seeks indemnification hereunder, but delay in providing such notice shall not relieve Tenant of its indemnification obligations, except to the extent such delay materially prejudiced Tenant’s ability to defend such Claim.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Tenant nor any of its

 

36

 

 


 

Affiliates shall assume any obligation for PLGL Claims that result from occurrences prior to the Commencement Date (except for such claims which arise during Tenant’s or any Subtenant’s management in a Facility or portion thereof managed by Tenant or any Subtenant).

ARTICLE 25
SUBORDINATION PROVISIONS

25.1This Lease (and Tenant’s interest in the Leased Property) shall be subject and subordinate to any and all mortgages or deeds of trust now or hereafter in force and affecting the Demised Premises (or any portion thereof) and/or Landlord’s Personal Property, and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof (any such mortgage or deed of trust, as it may be renewed, modified, consolidated, replaced and extended is hereinafter referred to as “a Mortgage” or “any such Mortgage”, and the holder or beneficiary of a Mortgage is hereinafter referred to as a “Mortgagee”).  Tenant agrees to execute and deliver upon demand such further instruments subordinating this Lease to any such Mortgage, or other liens or encumbrances as shall be desired by Landlord; provided, that Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a subordination, nondisturbance and attornment executed by any such Mortgagee, in form reasonably satisfactory to Tenant and such Mortgagee.  Tenant agrees further that any Mortgagee shall have the right to subordinate its Mortgage and its rights thereunder to this Lease, except that such Mortgagee shall be entitled to expressly exclude from such subordination the Mortgagee’s rights, if any, to insurance proceeds and eminent domain awards in the event of a loss or casualty or eminent domain taking of the Leased Property, or any portion thereof.  If such Mortgagee executes and records an instrument that purports to effect a partial or complete subordination of its Mortgage to this Lease, this Lease shall not be terminated by a foreclosure of such Mortgage, but any rights of such Mortgagee to insurance proceeds or eminent domain awards that are expressly excluded from such subordination shall remain superior to the rights of Tenant.

25.2During the existence of any material uncured default on the part of Tenant under this Lease, all fees, payments or other obligations of Tenant to any of the Guarantors or to any of the members of a Guarantor shall be subordinate to the prior payment in full of all obligations owing to Landlord under this Lease.

25.3Tenant also acknowledges and agrees that all rights and payments due under any management, consulting or similar agreement or agreements relative to the operation of a Facility by or on behalf of Tenant are to be and are hereby made subordinate to Tenant’s full payment and performance of all obligations under this Master Lease to Landlord.  As a result, if an Event of Default occurs and during the continuance of an Event of Default or if an event or circumstance occurs, which with notice or the passage of time or both would become and Event of Default, then any and all payments otherwise due and owing to the manager or other party to such agreement(s) by Tenant shall cease and remain suspended until the Event of Default is cured or, if applicable, such other event or circumstance which might become an Event of Default no longer exists.  Upon resumption of payments, any applicable arrearage may be repaid in accordance with a payment schedule as agreed between Tenant and such manager with Landlord’s approval which shall not be unreasonably withheld.

 

37

 

 


 

ARTICLE 26
TENANT’S FAITHFUL COMPLIANCE WITH MORTGAGE

26.1Anything in this Lease contained to the contrary notwithstanding, Tenant shall at all times and in all respects fully, timely and faithfully comply with and observe each and all of the conditions, covenants, and provisions required on the part of Landlord under any Mortgage to which this Lease is subordinate or to which it later may become subordinate, a copy of which has been provided to Tenant, including, without limitation, such conditions, covenants and provisions of such Mortgage that relate to the care, maintenance, repair, insurance, restoration, preservation and condemnation of the Demised Premises, provided that such conditions, covenants and provisions do not require compliance and observance to a standard or degree materially in excess of that required by the provisions of this Lease, and Tenant shall not do or permit to be done anything that would constitute a breach of or default under any obligation of Landlord under any Mortgage.  However, nothing in this Article contained shall be construed to obligate Tenant, except as may otherwise be provided in this Lease, to pay any Base Rent due or part of the principal or interest secured by any Mortgage.  Tenant further covenants and agrees as follows:  (a) if requested by Landlord in writing, Tenant shall give any Mortgagee notice of any Landlord default that occurs under this Lease, (b) Tenant shall not terminate this Lease as a result of Landlord’s default, without giving such Mortgagee  written notice of Landlord’s default under this Lease at the same time that Landlord is given notice of such default, and (c) if Landlord fails to cure such default within the applicable grace period, if any, contained in this Lease, such Mortgagee shall have thirty (30) days after notice thereof to cure any such default.

ARTICLE 27
HUD Financings

27.1Tenant acknowledges that Landlord may enter into one or more Mortgage loans insured through HUD under the provisions of Section 232 of the National Housing Act, and the regulations thereunder (each, a “HUD Loan”).  Tenant shall execute and deliver any agreement, document or instrument, or take any action, that is reasonably required to effectuate or confirm any of the transactions or amendments in connection with any HUD Loan.  Landlord agrees to reimburse Tenant for its reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred in connection with the review and execution of the aforementioned documents and instruments.

ARTICLE 28
TENANT’S ATTORNMENT

28.1Tenant covenants and agrees that, if by reason of a default upon the part of Landlord herein in the performance of any of the terms and conditions of any Mortgage, and the estate of Landlord thereunder is terminated by summary dispossession proceedings or otherwise, Tenant will attorn to the then Mortgagee or the purchaser in such foreclosure proceedings, as the case may be, and will recognize such Mortgagee or such purchaser as the lessor under this Lease.  Tenant covenants and agrees to execute and deliver, at any time and from time to time, upon the request of Landlord or of any Mortgagee or the purchaser in foreclosure proceedings, any instrument that may be necessary or appropriate to evidence such attornment.  Tenant further waives the provisions of any statute or rule of law now or hereafter in effect that may terminate

 

38

 

 


 

this Lease or give or purport to give Tenant any right of election to terminate this Lease or to surrender possession of the Demised Premises in the event any such proceedings are brought against Landlord under such Mortgage or by any Mortgagee, and agrees that this Lease shall not be affected in any way whatsoever by any such proceedings.

ARTICLE 33
MISCELLANEOUS

33.1Tenant, upon paying the Base Rent and all other charges herein provided, and for observing and keeping the covenants, agreements, terms and conditions of this Lease on its part to be performed, shall lawfully and quietly hold, occupy and enjoy the Demised Premises during the Term, and subject to its terms, without hindrance by Landlord or by any other person or persons claiming under Landlord.

33.2It is understood and agreed that the granting of any consent by Landlord to Tenant to perform any act of Tenant requiring Landlord’s consent under the terms of this Lease, or the failure on the part of Landlord to object to any such action taken by Tenant without Landlord’s consent, shall not be deemed a waiver by Landlord of its rights to require such consent for any further similar act by Tenant, and Tenant hereby expressly covenants and warrants that as to all matters requiring Landlord’s consent under the terms of this Lease, Tenant shall secure such consent for each and every happening of the event requiring such consent, and shall not claim any waiver on the part of Landlord of the requirement to secure such consent.

 

41

 

 


 

33.3Tenant represents to Landlord that it did not deal with any broker in connection with this Lease, and hereby indemnifies Landlord against the claims or demands of any broker claimed through a relationship with Tenant.  Landlord hereby represents to Tenant that it did not deal with any broker in connection with this Lease, and hereby indemnifies Tenant against the claims or demands of any broker claimed through a relationship with Landlord.

33.4If an action shall be brought by Landlord to recover any rental under this Lease, or for or on account of any breach of or to enforce or interpret any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Lease, or for the recovery of possession of the Demised Premises, or otherwise, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other, as part of its costs, reasonable attorney’s fees.

33.5Should Tenant hold possession hereunder after the expiration of the Term without the consent of Landlord, Tenant shall become a tenant on a month-to-month basis upon all the terms, covenants and conditions herein specified, excepting however that Tenant shall pay Landlord a monthly rental, for the period of such month-to-month tenancy, in an amount equal to 125% of the last Base Rent specified.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything contained in ARTICLE 33 or elsewhere in this Lease, if Tenant is unable to surrender the Demised Premises because Landlord fails to provide a Proper Successor (as defined below) for the Facilities at the end of the Lease Term to take over the operation and management of the Facility, Tenant shall have the right, but shall not be obligated to, remain in possession of the Demised Premises and continue to operate and manage the same if Tenant would be legally prohibited from abandoning the Demised Premises or in Tenant’s judgment, based on reasonable commercial standards in the nursing facility industry, abandoning the Demised Premises without a Proper Successor in place to continue the operations of the Facilities would jeopardize its (or its affiliates’ or subsidiaries’) reputation as a provider of nursing facility care or could otherwise subject it (or its affiliates or subsidiaries) to liability for negligence or mistreatment of residents at the Demised Premises.  In the event Tenant remains in possession of the Demised Premises pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, Tenant shall, during such occupancy, pay to Landlord rent at a rate equal to the annual Base Rent payable by Tenant in the last year of the Lease Term, and Tenant shall surrender possession of the Demised Premises within ten (10) business days after Landlord provides a Proper Successor for the Facilities.  As used herein, “Proper Successor” means a qualified and duly licensed operator of the Facilities, or one as to which the applicable state licensing authority has indicated its willingness to issue a License upon transfer of possession of the Facilities.

33.6Except as otherwise specifically permitted herein, all notices, or demands required to be given by either party to the other shall be in writing and shall be sent by (a) personal delivery, (b) expedited delivery service with proof of delivery, (c) United States registered/certified mail, return receipt requested, (d) nationwide courier guaranteeing overnight delivery, such as Federal Express or United Parcel Service, or (e) prepaid telecopy, telegram, telex or fax, addressed to the other party hereto at the address set forth below:

47

(b)If, following the Transition Closing Date, Landlord receives payment from any state or federal agency or third-party provider that represents reimbursement with respect to services provided at the Demised Premises prior to the Transition Closing Date, Landlord agrees that, subject to the provisions of ARTICLE 23, it shall remit such payments to Tenant.  Payments by Landlord to Tenant shall be accompanied by a copy of the appropriate remittance.

34.9Tenant for itself, its successors and assigns hereby indemnifies and agrees to defend and hold Landlord and the other Indemnified Parties and their respective successors and assigns harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, obligations, losses, liabilities, damages, recoveries and deficiencies (including interest, penalties and reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and expenses) that any of them may suffer as a result of the breach by Tenant in the performance of any of its commitments, covenants or obligations under this ARTICLE 34, or with respect to any suits, arbitration proceedings, administrative actions or investigations that relate to the use by Tenant of the Demised Premises during the Term or for any liability that may arise from operation of the Demised Premises as nursing homes during the Term, including without limitation, any amounts due or to be reimbursed to any governmental authority based upon any audit or review of Tenant or of any Facility or the operation thereof and pertaining to the period prior to the Transition Closing Date or any amounts recaptured under Titles XVIII or XIX based upon applicable Medicaid/Medicare recapture regulations.  The rights of Landlord under this paragraph are without prejudice to any other remedies not inconsistent herewith that Landlord may have against Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Lease.  The foregoing indemnity shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease, whether due to lapse of time or otherwise.

 

48

 

 


 

34.10So long as the termination of this Lease is not due to a default by Tenant hereunder and provided further that Tenant has performed in accordance with this ARTICLE 34, Landlord for itself, its successors and assigns hereby indemnifies and agrees to defend and hold Tenant and its successors and assigns harmless from any and all claims, demands, obligations, losses, liabilities, damages, recoveries and deficiencies (including interest, penalties and reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and expenses) that any of them may suffer as a result of the breach by Landlord in the performance of any of its commitments, covenants or obligations under this ARTICLE 34, or with respect to any suits, arbitration proceedings, administrative actions or investigations that relate to the use of the Demised Premises after the Term or for any liability that may arise from operation of the Demised Premises as a nursing home after the Term.  The rights of Tenant under this paragraph are without prejudice to any other remedies not inconsistent herewith that Tenant may have against Landlord pursuant to the terms of this Lease or otherwise.

34.11Landlord shall have the right, upon five (5) business days’ prior notice to Tenant (unless the facts and circumstance giving rise to the implementation of this ARTICLE 34 involve an Event of Default, in which case no prior notice shall be required), to offset against any monies due Tenant pursuant to the terms of this ARTICLE 34, any amounts due by Tenant to Landlord pursuant to this Lease, including without limitation any amounts due for taxes or insurance premiums.

34.13Landlord and Tenant agree to cooperate with each other in order to effectuate the terms and provisions of this ARTICLE 34.

Pleasant TX - SNF, LLC, each a Delaware limited liability company (collectively, the "Landlord").  

 

WHEREAS, pursuant to a Master Lease, of even date herewith (the "Master Lease"), between Landlord and Brownwood IV Enterprises, LLC, El Paso VI Enterprises, LLC, Graham I Enterprises, LLC, Kaufman I Enterprises, LLC, Kemp I Enterprises, LLC, Kerens I Enterprises, LLC, Longview III Enterprises, LLC, San Antonio I Enterprises, LLC, San Antonio II Enterprises, LLC and Mt.

WHEREAS, as a condition to entering into the Master Lease, Landlord has required that the Guarantors execute and deliver this Guaranty to Landlord; and

WHEREAS, Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings as defined in the Master Lease.

NOW, THEREFORE, as a condition precedent to the commencement of the Master Lease, and for other consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Guarantors hereby agree as follows:

1.Guaranteed Obligations. Guarantors, jointly and severally, hereby unconditionally, absolutely and irrevocably guarantee to Landlord the timely payment and performance by Tenant of each and every obligation of Tenant under the Master Lease, including, without limitation, payment of all Base Rent, all other rent, and all other amounts now or hereafter due under the Master Lease, and all indemnification and other obligations of Tenant under the Master Lease, whether arising during the Initial Term or any renewals or extensions thereof, in strict accordance with the terms of the Master Lease (collectively, the “Contract Obligations”).  In addition, Guarantors, jointly and severally, hereby unconditionally, absolutely and irrevocably agree to pay on demand any and all costs, expenses and fees of any type whatsoever including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees incurred by Landlord in enforcing any rights under this Guaranty or under the Master Lease (collectively, the “Expenses”). The Contract Obligations and the Expenses are collectively referred to as the “Guaranteed Obligations”. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Guarantors' liability shall extend to all amounts that constitute part of the Guaranteed Obligations and that are owed by Tenant to Landlord under the Master Lease, including those that may be unenforceable or not

 


 

allowable due to any bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding involving Tenant; provided, however, that the Guaranteed Obligations shall not exceed an amount equal to the next thirty (30) months of then-current Rent payable by Tenant to Landlord under the Lease at the time of the notice of default from Landlord to Tenant.

2.Unconditional, Unlimited and Absolute Guaranty. Guarantors guarantee that all of the Guaranteed Obligations will be paid, performed and observed strictly in accordance with the terms of the Master Lease, as applicable, regardless of any law, statute, rule, regulation, decree or order now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction affecting or purporting to affect in any manner any such terms or the related rights or remedies of Landlord. The obligations of Guarantors under this Guaranty are independent of the Guaranteed Obligations. The liability of each Guarantor under this Guaranty shall be unconditional, unlimited and absolute and shall not be affected, released, modified, altered, terminated, discharged or impaired, in whole or in part, by any of the following:

(a)any lack of genuineness, validity, legality or enforceability or the voidability of the Master Lease or any other agreement or instrument relating thereto;

(b)any change in the time, manner or place of payment, performance or observance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any extensions of time for payment, performance or observance of the Guaranteed Obligations or any of the terms of the Master Lease;

(c)any waiver, assertion, enforcement, failure to enforce, consent, indulgence or departure granted by Landlord with respect to any term of the Master Lease including, without limitation, acceptance of any amounts less than the scheduled rent or other amount due under the Master Lease or the waiver of any default or event of default by Tenant or acceptance of any settlement from Tenant for its obligations under the Master Lease;

(d)any failure or delay of Landlord to exercise, or any lack of diligence in exercising, any right or remedy with respect to the Master Lease;

(e)the failure of any individual, partnership, association, corporation, limited liability company or other entity (a “Person”) to complete construction of any Improvements to the Property or any Facility or any Improvements for Tenant’s use and occupancy of the Property or any Facility;

(f)the exercise of any right or remedy under the Master Lease,;

(g)any bankruptcy, insolvency, assignment for the benefit of creditors, receivership, trusteeship or dissolution of Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant’s obligations under the Master Lease;

- 2 -

 


 

(h)any exchange, surrender or release, in whole or in part, of any collateral or security that may be held by Landlord at any time under the Master Lease or in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations;

(i)the release of any other Guarantor or any other Person from liability for the payment, performance or observance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any of the terms of the Master Lease on the part of Tenant to be paid, performed or observed, as applicable, whether by operation of law or otherwise;

(j)the exercise, delay or failure to exercise any rights, powers or privileges Landlord may now or hereafter have against any Person or collateral in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations, or against any of the other Guarantors;

(k)Landlord’s consent to any assignment of or sublease under the Master Lease;

(l)any failure to give any Guarantor any notice of any type whatsoever, and Guarantors hereby waive any and all such notices;

(m)any and all notice of the creation, renewal or extension of the Guaranteed Obligations and notice of or proof of reliance by Landlord upon this Guaranty or acceptance of this Guaranty; or

(n)all of the foregoing from time to time before or after any default or event of default by Tenant under the Master Lease and with or without further notice to any Guarantor.

This Guaranty shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as applicable, and the rights of Landlord hereunder shall continue with respect to, any Guaranteed Obligation at any time paid by Tenant which shall thereafter be required to be restored or returned by Landlord or any successor or assignee of Landlord upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of Tenant, or for any other reason, all as though such Guaranteed Obligation had not been so paid or applied.

3.Waivers. Guarantors hereby waive (a) notice of acceptance of this Guaranty and of any change in the financial condition of Tenant or Landlord, (b) promptness, diligence, presentment and demand for payment and performance or observance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, (c) protest, notice of dishonor, notice of default and any other notice with respect to any of the Guaranteed Obligations or this Guaranty or otherwise required or applicable by law, (d) any demand for payment under this Guaranty, (e) any requirement that Landlord exercise or exhaust any right or remedy or take any action against Tenant, any other Person or Guarantor or any collateral or other available security and agrees that Landlord may enforce its rights hereunder without recourse to any rights under the Master Lease or applicable law, and without taking any actions or proceedings against Tenant, any other Person or Guarantor or any collateral or security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations, (f) all benefits of any statute of limitations affecting the Guarantor’s liability under, or the enforcement of, this

- 3 -

 


 

Guaranty, (g) any failure of Landlord to disclose to Guarantors any information relating to the financial condition, operations or properties of Tenant or any other guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations (Guarantors hereby waive any duty of Landlord to obtain or disclose such information), and (h) any right or claim of right to cause a marshalling of the assets of Tenant or any other Person or to cause Landlord to proceed against Tenant, any other Person or any collateral.  

4.Bankruptcy. Without limiting the Guarantors' obligations under this Guaranty, if Tenant or Tenant’s trustee, receiver or other officer with similar powers, rejects, disaffirms or otherwise terminates the Master Lease pursuant to any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or any other law affecting creditors’ rights generally, Guarantors, jointly and severally, shall automatically be deemed to have assumed, from and after the date such rejection, disaffirmance or other termination of the Master Lease is deemed effective, all obligations and liabilities of Tenant under the Master Lease to the same extent as if Guarantors had been originally named instead of Tenant as the Tenant under the Master Lease and as if the Master Lease had never been so rejected, disaffirmed or otherwise terminated. Guarantor, upon such assumption, shall pay, perform and observe all of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether accrued or accruing, and Guarantors shall be subject to any rights or remedies of Landlord that may have accrued or that may thereafter accrue against Tenant on account of any default or event of default under the Master Lease notwithstanding that such defaults existed prior to the date Guarantors are deemed to have assumed the Master Lease or that such rights or remedies are unenforceable against Tenant by reason of such rejection, disaffirmance or other termination. Guarantors shall confirm such assumption in writing at the request of Landlord upon or after such rejection, disaffirmance or other termination but any such failure shall not affect the assumption by Guarantors. Neither Guarantors' obligation to make payment or performance of the Guaranteed Obligations under this Guaranty nor any remedy for the enforcement thereof shall be impaired, modified, changed, stayed, released or limited in any manner by any impairment, modification, change, release, limitation or stay of the liability of Tenant or its estate in bankruptcy or any remedy for the enforcement thereof resulting from the operation of any present of future provision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or other statute or from any court decision and Guarantors shall be obligated under this Guaranty as if no such impairment, stay, modification, change, release or limitation had occurred.

5.Primary Obligation. This is an absolute, unconditional and unlimited guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection and Guarantors waive any right to require that any action be brought against Tenant or any other Person, or to require that resort be had to any collateral, security, any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of Landlord in favor of Tenant or any other Person. No invalidity, irregularity or unenforceability of any part of the Master Lease shall affect, impair or be a defense to this Guaranty and this Guaranty shall constitute the primary obligation of Guarantors.

6.No Demand. No demand on Guarantors shall be required and no notice to Guarantors of any default or event of default under the Master Lease shall be required.  Guarantors hereby waive any such demand or notice.  Landlord shall have the right to enforce this Guaranty immediately and directly against any Guarantors upon any default or event of default under the Master Lease. Landlord may commence any action or proceeding based upon this Guaranty directly against any or all of the Guarantors without making Tenant a party

- 4 -

 


 

defendant in such action or proceeding. Any one or more successive or concurrent actions may be brought against Guarantors either in the same action, if any, brought against Tenant, or in separate actions as Landlord, in its sole discretion, deems advisable.

7.Waiver of Rights against Tenant. Until the indefeasible cash payment in full of all of the Guaranteed Obligations, Guarantors hereby irrevocably waive any claim or other rights that any of them may now or hereafter acquire against Tenant from the existence, payment, performance or enforcement of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other documents executed in connection therewith (collectively, the “Guaranty Documents”), including, without limitation, any right of subrogation, reimbursement, exoneration, contribution or indemnification and any right to participate in any claim or remedy of Landlord against Tenant, whether or not such claim, remedy or right arises in equity, under contract, statute or common law including, without limitation, the right to take or receive from Tenant, directly or indirectly, in cash or other property or by set-off or in any other manner, payment or security on account of such claim, remedy or right. Guarantors hereby acknowledge that the waiver, contained in the preceding sentence (the “Subrogation Waiver”) is given as a condition precedent to Landlord’s agreement to enter into the transactions contemplated under the Master Lease and, therefore, Guarantors agree not to amend or modify in any way the Subrogation Waiver without the prior written consent of Landlord. If any amount is paid to Guarantors in violation of the preceding sentence at any time prior to the indefeasible cash payment in full of all amounts payable under this Guaranty, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of Landlord, shall be segregated from the other funds of Guarantors and shall be paid to Landlord and credited to all amounts payable under this Guaranty, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms of the Master Lease, as the case may be, and the Guaranty Documents, or held as collateral for any amounts payable under this Guaranty.

8.Modification of Master Lease.
