Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Second Amended and Restated Distribution Support Agreement
On February 4, 2013, NorthStar Healthcare Income, Inc. (the Company) entered into a Second Amended and Restated Distribution Support Agreement (the Distribution Support Agreement) by and between the Company and the NorthStar Realty Finance Corp. (the Sponsor), pursuant to which the Sponsors maximum commitment to purchase shares under the agreement has been modified to include any purchases made by the Sponsor and its subsidiaries to satisfy the Minimum Offering Amount (as defined below in Item 7.01).
Amended and Restated Long Term Incentive Plan
On February 4, 2013, the Company adopted an Amended and Restated Long Term Incentive Plan (the Incentive Plan), which, among other things, lowers the maximum number of shares of the Companys common stock that may be issued upon the exercise or grant of awards made under the Incentive Plan from 10% to 5% of the shares outstanding as of the grant date. In addition the Company adopted an Amended and Restated Independent Directors Compensation Plan, a sub-plan of the Incentive Plan (the Independent Directors Plan) to address the changes made to the Incentive Plan.
The foregoing summaries of the Distribution Support Agreement, the Incentive Plan and the Independent Directors Plan do not purport to be complete descriptions thereof and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the copies of the Distribution Support Agreement and the Incentive Plan which are filed as exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
Modification of Minimum Offering Requirement For Continuous Public Offering
On February 4, 2013, the board of directors of the Company determined that it was advisable and in the best interests of the Company to modify the minimum offering requirement in the Companys continuous public offering (the Offering) of up to $1,100,000,000 in shares of its common stock (the Shares) such that the minimum offering amount of $2,000,000 (the Minimum Offering Amount) may be raised from any combination of proceeds from the sale of shares in the Offering, including shares purchased by the Sponsor or one of its affiliates, but excluding the $200,000 in shares purchased by an affiliate of the Sponsor in connection with the Companys initial capitalization. The Sponsor has informed us that it or one of its affiliates intends to purchase $2,000,000 in shares of our common stock in this offering at $9.00 per share (reflecting that no selling commissions or dealer manager fees will be paid).
Additionally, in connection with the purchase of Shares in the Offering by the Sponsor or one of its affiliates, the Sponsor has informed us that neither the Sponsor nor its affiliate intends to sell any Shares acquired that enable the Company to satisfy the Minimum Offering Amount to any person or entity, other than to a subsidiary, parent company or company under common control with the Sponsor, for so long as the Company is externally managed and advised by NorthStar Healthcare Income Advisor, LLC, or another affiliate of the Sponsor.
