Item 8.01. Other Events
Elimination of Asset Management Fees During Offering Period
On January 7, 2013, the board of directors of Phillips Edison – ARC Shopping Center REIT Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), approved changes to the compensation structure contemplated in the advisory agreement between the Company and its advisor, American Realty Capital II Advisors, LLC (the “Advisor”), for the asset management services provided by the Advisor. These changes provide that the asset management compensation structure contemplated in the current advisory agreement between the Company and the Advisor will be eliminated effective October 1, 2012.
Instead, the Company expects to issue to the Advisor on a quarterly basis performance-based restricted partnership units of the Company’s operating partnership, Phillips Edison – ARC Shopping Center Operating Partnership, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), designated as “Class B units.” The Class B units will vest, and will no longer be subject to forfeiture, at such time as: (x) the value of the Operating Partnership’s assets plus all distributions made equals or exceeds the total amount of capital contributed by investors plus a 6% cumulative, pre-tax, non-compounded annual return thereon (the “economic hurdle”); (y) any one of the following occurs: (1) the termination of the Advisory Agreement by an affirmative vote of a majority of the Conflicts Committee without cause; (2) a listing event; or (3) another liquidity event; and (z) the Advisor is still providing advisory services to the Company (the “performance condition”). Such Class B units will be forfeited immediately if: (a) the advisory agreement is terminated other than by an affirmative vote of a majority of the Company's independent directors without cause; or (b) the advisory agreement is terminated by an affirmative vote of a majority of the Company’s independent directors without cause before the economic hurdle has been met.
On January 14, 2013, Phillips Edison – ARC Shopping Center REIT Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), issued a press release to announce the changes to the asset management compensation structure discussed above.
