10.Definitions.  As used in this Agreement:

Beginning Stock Price” means the closing price per share of Common Stock on December 31, [YEAR 0] on the exchange on which Common Stock is traded, which is $[PRICE].

Below Threshold Relative TSR” means that Relative Total Shareholder Return has been attained at less than the [___] percentile of the Commercial Financing REIT Group.

Change in Control” has the meaning as defined in the Plan; provided, however the event must also constitute a change in ownership,  effective control or ownership of assets as described in Code Section 409A(a)(2)(A)(v).

Cause” has the meaning as defined in the Plan.

Commercial Financing REIT Group” means the member companies of the FTSE NAREIT Mortgage REITs Index (FNMR) that are categorized as “Commercial Financing” REITs that are members of such index for the entire Performance Period.

Disability” has the meaning as defined in the Plan.

Ending Stock Price” means the closing price per share of Common Stock on the last trading day before January 1, [YEAR 4] on the exchange on which Common Stock is traded, unless a Change in Control occurs on or before December 31, [YEAR 3], in which case the term means the value per share determined as of the date of the Change in Control, such value to be determined by the Committee in its reasonable discretion based on the actual or implied price per share paid in the Change in Control transaction.

Ending Value of Reinvested Dividends” means the dollar amount equal to the Ending Stock Price multiplied by the total number of shares hypothetically purchased with


the dividends declared to a shareholder of record during the Performance Period, assuming that each dividend is re-invested in Common Stock at the closing price per share on the last business day before the ex-dividend date. For purposes of this calculation, the dividends declared to a shareholder of record during the Performance Period will initially be calculated on one share of Common Stock beginning as of the first dividend declaration date during the Performance Period, and as of each dividend declaration date during the Performance Period thereafter, the dividends will be calculated with respect to the sum of one share of Common Stock plus the cumulative number of shares of Common Stock hypothetically purchased prior to such dividend declaration date. The “Ending Value of Reinvested Dividends” can also be expressed as the following formula:

            Ending Value of Reinvested Dividends = (Ending Stock Price x Total Number of Shares Hypothetically Purchased with Reinvested Dividends)

            Total Number of Shares Hypothetically Purchased with Reinvested Dividends = Number of Shares Hypothetically Purchased with First Reinvested Dividend + the sum of the Number of Shares Hypothetically Purchased with each Subsequent Reinvested Dividend

            Number of Shares Hypothetically Purchased with First Reinvested Dividend = (dividend declared to a shareholder of record during the Performance Period calculated on one share of Common Stock as of the first dividend declaration date during such period)/closing price per share of Common Stock on the last business day before the ex-dividend date)

            Number of Shares Hypothetically Purchased with each Subsequent Reinvested Dividend = (each dividend declared to a shareholder of record after the first dividend declaration date during the Performance Period calculated on the sum of the one share of Common Stock beginning as of the first dividend declaration date + the number of shares hypothetically purchased with reinvested dividends before such subsequent dividend declaration date)/closing price per share of Common Stock on the last business day before the related ex-dividend date)

Good Reason” has the meaning set forth in the written employment agreement between the Participant and the Company or an Affiliate thereof, or if no such meaning applies in such agreement or no such agreement exists, then the term means (i) a material and sustained diminution in the Participant’s duties of employment or a material reduction of the Participant’s title, (ii) a material breach by the Company or an Affiliate of any employment agreement with the Participant, if any, (iii) relocation of the Participant’s principal place of employment to a location that is more than fifty (50) miles from the Participant’s place of employment on the Grant Date, without the Participant’s consent, (iv) a reduction in the Participant’s annual base salary, unless such reduction is part of an across the board reduction for employees at or above similar levels of authority within the Company or an Affiliate (whichever employs the Participant), or (v) a material reduction in the Participant’s target annual bonus opportunity; provided that any such action shall not constitute Good Reason unless (A) the Participant provides written notice to the Company of any such action within thirty (30) days of the date on which such action first occurs and

Relative Total Shareholder Return” means Total Shareholder Return expressed as a positive or negative number of basis points relative to the total shareholder return for the Commercial Financing REIT Group for the Performance Period.  For this purpose, the total shareholder return for the Commercial Financing REIT Group shall be calculated using methodologies analogous in all material respects to those used for the calculation of Total Shareholder Return.

Target Relative TSR” means that Relative Total Shareholder Return has been attained at the [___] percentile of the Commercial Financing REIT Group; provided, however, if Relative TSR exceeds the [___] percentile of the Commercial Financing REIT Group, but Total Shareholder Return has been attained at less than [_]%, Relative TSR shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to have been achieved only at the Target Relative TSR level and not above that level.

Threshold Relative TSR” means that Relative Total Shareholder Return has been attained at the [___] percentile of the Commercial Financing REIT Group.  

Total Shareholder Return” means the compound annual growth rate (also known as “CAGR”), expressed as a percentage, of an investment in one share of Common Stock over the Performance Period, based on the Ending Stock Price plus the Ending Value of Reinvested Dividends, as compared to the Beginning Stock Price, and using the following formula:

 (((Ending Stock Price + Ending Value of Reinvested Dividends)/Beginning Stock Price)^(1/3)) – 1

Termination of Employment” has the meaning as defined in the Plan.

Other capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Plan.


EXHIBIT 1

C.Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Participant’s Termination of Employment by reason of the Participant’s death or Disability occurs during the Performance Period and before a Change in Control, the number of Vested Units will be equal to the number of Units Earned for the Performance Period multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days the Participant was employed during the Performance Period and the denominator of which is 365.
D.Notwithstanding Item B or C, upon the occurrence of a Change in Control (which shall result in the Performance Period ending on date of the Change in Control), the number of Vested Units will be determined as follows:

(i)

if the acquiring or surviving company in the Change in Control does not assume or continue the Award, the number of Earned Units shall vest and become Vested Units if (A) the Participant remains an employee of the Company or an Affiliate until the date of the Change in Control or (B) if the Participant’s Termination of Employment by the Company or an Affiliate without Cause or by the Participant for Good Reason occurs within thirty (30) days before the date of the Change in Control; or

Units if (A) the Participant remains an employee of the Company or an Affiliate until December 31, [YEAR 3], (B) the Participant’s Termination of Employment by the Company or an Affiliate without Cause or by the Participant for Good Reason occurs within thirty (30) days before or following the date of the Change in Control or (C) the Participant’s Termination of Employment by reason of death or Disability occurs following the date of the Change in Control.        

E.The portion of the Restricted Unit Grant that does not become Units Earned as of the last day of the applicable Performance Period shall be forfeited as of the last day of such Performance Period, and any Units Earned that do not become Vested Units by the date the Participant ceases to be an employee of the Company or an Affiliate (except as provided in Items B through D) shall be forfeited.
