and Articles of this Agreement and all references to Exhibits refer to the Exhibits attached hereto. The words “include,” “includes,” and “including” shall be deemed to be followed by the phrase “without limitation.” The words “herein,” “hereof,” “hereunder,” and similar terms shall refer to this Agreement, unless the context otherwise requires. Captions contained in this Agreement in no way define, limit or extend the scope or intent of this Agreement. The definitions set forth in Section 1.8 and Section 1.9 shall apply equally to both the singular and plural forms of the terms defined. Whenever the context may require, any pronoun used herein shall include the corresponding masculine, feminine, and neuter forms.

ARTICLE 2.     CAPITAL ACCOUNTS AND CONTRIBUTIONS; MEMBER LOANS

          Section 2.1     Capital Contributions. On or prior to the Effective Date, each of the Members made Capital Contributions to the Company as set forth on Exhibit A hereto. The Management Committee shall update Exhibit A from time to time to reflect any Additional Capital Contributions and any Member Loans made by the Members, any change in the Members’ relative Percentage Interests, the admission of any additional Members, the Transfer of any Membership Interest and any other relevant events.

          Section 2.2     Additional Capital Contributions; Additional Membership Interests.

                    (A)           Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, and subject to Section 2.2(B), no additional Capital Contributions (“Additional Capital Contributions”) shall be permitted or required to be made by any Member except as unanimously agreed by the Members. The Members contemplate that any Additional Capital Contributions will be made in accordance with the Members’ then relative Percentage Interests; provided, the


 

Members hereby agree that any loans by Member to the Company and/or if any Additional Capital Contribution made by a Member exceeds its proportionate share, the amount of such excess or loans shall be a “Member Loan” entitled to the preferences and priorities set forth in this Agreement.

                    (B)           Additional Capital Contributions or a Member Loan are permitted to be made without unanimous agreement of the Members only to enable the Company to satisfy a then-existing contractual obligation that it would otherwise be unable to satisfy. Prior to any Additional Capital Contribution or Member Laon being made pursuant to this Section 2.2(B), the Member proposing to make such Additional Capital Contribution or a Member Loan shall deliver written notice to the other Member, and give such Member the opportunity to make a portion of such Additional Capital Contribution or a Member Loan in accordance with such Member’s relative Percentage Interest. The repayment of Member Loans shall be first applied to Cumulative Loan Return, then to principle amount of Member Loans. Member Loans shall be repaid as provided in Sections 3.1 and 4.3 and to the extent not previously repaid as provided above, shall be repaid in full (including any Cumulative Loan Return) upon the later of 12 months after such Member Loan is made and demand by the Member to the Company.

                    (C)           Additional Membership Interests may be created and issued to existing Members or to other Persons, and such other Persons may be admitted to the Company as Members, in each case only upon approval of all of the Members on such terms and conditions as the Members may unanimously determine in their sole discretion. The provisions of this

11




Execution Copy

Section 2.2(C) shall not apply to Transfers of Membership Interests or admissions of transferees in connection therewith, such matters being governed by Article 8 of this Agreement.

          Section 2.3     Capital Accounts.

                    (A)        The Company shall maintain on its books a Capital Account for each Member in accordance with this Section 2.3. At any time, each Member’s Capital Account shall be equal to (1) such Member’s Capital Contributions, plus (2) such Member’s allocable share of Profits and any items in the nature of income or gain that are specially allocated to such Member pursuant to Section 4.2,  plus (3) the amount of any Company liabilities assumed by such Member or that are secured by any property distributed to such Member, minus (4) the amount of cash and the Gross Asset Value of any Company asset other than cash distributed to such Member, minus (5) such Member’s allocable share of Losses and any other items in the nature of deductions or losses that are specially allocated to such Member pursuant to Section 4.2, and minus (6) the amount of any liabilities of such Member assumed by the Company or that are secured by any property contributed by such Member to the Company. The Members agree and acknowledge that their respective Capital Account balances as of November 30, 2007 are as set forth in Exhibit A hereto.

                    (B)        If any Member transfers all or a portion of its Membership Interest in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the transferee shall succeed to the Capital Account of the transferor to the extent such Capital Account relates to the portion of the Membership Interest so transferred.

                    (C)        In determining the amount of any liability for purposes of Section 2.3(A), Code Section 752(c) and any other applicable provisions of the Code and Treasury Regulations will be taken into account.

                    (D)        This Section 2.3 and the other provisions of this Agreement relating to the maintenance of Capital Accounts are intended to comply with Treasury Regulation §§ 1.704-1(b) and 1.704-2 and shall be


 

interpreted and applied consistently therewith. In the event that the Management Committee shall unanimously determine that it is prudent to modify the manner in which the Capital Accounts, or any credits or debits thereto, are computed in order to comply with such Treasury Regulations, the Management Committee (consenting or voting unanimously only) may make such modification, provided it is not likely to have a material effect on the amounts distributable to any Member upon the dissolution of the Company.

                    (E)        The treatment of Member Loans and interest thereon shall be treated in accordance with applicable Laws and the Treasury Regulations, and such treatment shall be reflected in the determination of Profits, Losses, and Capital Accounts.

          Section 2.4     Negative Capital Accounts. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no Member shall be required to make a Capital Contribution to the Company to restore a negative Capital Account on dissolution of the Company or otherwise.

          Section 2.5     Certain Limitations.

                    (A)        Except as provided in the Agreement, no Member shall (1) be entitled to demand or receive the return of, all or any portion of such Member’s Capital Contributions or Capital Account balance, (2) be entitled to receive any interest or preferred return on its Capital Contributions or Capital Account balance, (3) have any priority over other Members as to distributions or (4) the right to withdraw any part of its Capital Contribution from the Company prior to its liquidation and termination pursuant to Article 9 hereof. Any unreturned Capital Contribution is not a liability of the Company or of any Member, and no Member is required to contribute or to lend any cash or property to the Company to enable the Company to return any Member’s Capital Contributions.

                    (B)        The rights and obligations of the Members under this Article 2 are for the exclusive benefit of the Members, and no creditor or other Person having dealings with the Company shall have any right or claim hereunder.

                    (C)        Each Member hereby waives any right of partition and all other rights otherwise available to such Member to sever its relationship with the Company or its interest in Company assets from the interests of other Members.

                    (D)        Each Member hereby agrees that no Member shall have any appraisal rights under Section 18-210 of the Act.

                    (E)        Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, or as may be provided in any separate agreement between the Company and a Member or an Affiliate of a Member, each Member shall bear its own costs and expenses in dealings with the Company.

          Section 2.6     RFC Loan. The Members acknowledge and agree that (i) the Company has obtained financing (the “Company RFC Financing”) under a master line of credit (the “RFC Loan”) obtained by Bluegreen from Residential Funding Company, LLC (“RFC”); (ii) BC has guaranteed the Company’s payment and performance of the Company RFC Financing; and (iii) certain provisions of the RFC Loan may permit RFC to foreclose on certain Business Property if Bluegreen or its Affiliates default under a portion of the RFC Loan other than the Company RFC Financing. In connection with the Company RFC Financing, the Members agree that:


 

                    (A)        Bluegreen shall have the right to amend or modify the RFC Loan in such manner as it determines in its sole and absolute discretion; provided, any modification of the Company RFC Financing shall be subject to the prior written approval of BCLLC, and provided further that any amendment or modification of the Company RFC Financing that would have a material adverse effect on the Company or BCLLC shall require the prior written approval of BCLLC recognizing that Bluegreen shall be responsible for all other obligations in connection with the RFC Loan other than with respect to the Company RFC Financing.

                    (B)        In the event BC is required to pay any liability of the Company in connection with the Company RFC Financing or other financing transaction that has been approved by both Members pursuant to BC’s guarantee thereof, if any, then such payment shall be treated as a Member Loan and BCLLC shall reimburse BC for a percentage of such liability

13




Execution Copy

equal to BCLLC’s Percentage Interest. Upon delivery of written notice from BC to the Company and BCLLC that any amounts due from BCLLC to BC pursuant to this Section 2.6(B) are more than fifteen (15) days overdue, which notice shall set forth the amounts due and include evidence of payment to RFC (or other lender in the case of another financing that has been approved by both Members) by BC, the Company shall pay any distributions (other than Tax Distributions) otherwise payable to BCLLC, directly to BC until the aggregate amount of such distributions equals the amount (principal and interest) due from BCLLC to BC pursuant to this Section 2.6(B), and Bluegreen or BC shall be entitled to offset against any monies owed to BCLLC or its Affiliates any sums owed by BCLLC to BC, Bluegreen or the Company.

                    (C)        In the event that RFC forecloses on any Business Property for any reason other than a Company default under the Company RFC Financing, then Bluegreen and BC shall be obligated, jointly and severally, to pay to BCLLC, on the date that as a result of such foreclosure the Company Property is sold, foreclosed, or otherwise conveyed by the Company (a “Foreclosure Conveyance”), 49% of the greater of: (i) the fair market value of such Company Property, as determined at the time of such Foreclosure Conveyance; and (ii) the sale price of such Company Property in a Foreclosure Conveyance.

                    (D)        The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to comply with all terms and provisions of the RFC Loan.

                    (E)        The Members acknowledge and agree that in the event the Company does not for any reason pay off the Company RFC Financing on or before such RFC Financing is required to be paid off pursuant to its terms (the “Repayment Date”), then the Members shall, (i) pro rata and in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests, make an Additional Capital Contribution on or before the Repayment Date sufficient to enable the Company to pay off the Company RFC Financing and (ii) cause the Company to take such other actions as are reasonably required to pay off the Company RFC Financing on or before the Repayment Date. If either member fails to make its Additional Capital Contribution required pursuant to this Section 2.6(E), the other Member shall be entitled to contribute such amount to the Company as an agreed Member Loan.

          Section 2.7     Other Loans by Members or Affiliates. No Member shall be required to make any loans or otherwise lend any funds to the Company; provided, subject to obtaining any requisite approvals required under this Agreement for the Company to borrow funds, any Member or its Affiliate may (but shall not be obligated to) at any time, upon approval of the Management Committee, loan money or guarantee a loan to the Company to finance Company operations, to finance or refinance any assets of the Company, to pay the debts and obligations of the Company, or for any other Company purpose. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may incur payables or


 

receivables to or from the Members in connection with transactions in the ordinary course of business for any services provided or goods acquired or sold, provided, such payables shall not be treated as Member Loans and provided, further, that the Member so engaging in transactions with or on behalf of the Company shall provide to the other Member a monthly accounting of all such transactions. If any Member or its Affiliate lends funds or guarantees a loan of funds to the Company as provided in this Section 2.7, such Member or Affiliate shall be entitled to receive interest on such loan, and shall be entitled to receive a fee for guaranteeing any such loan, as may be agreed upon by the Members on behalf of the Company.

          Section 2.8     Accounting. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Company shall prepare and maintain its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

ARTICLE 3.     DISTRIBUTIONS

          Section 3.1     Distributions of Operating Proceeds. Except as provided in Section 3.2 (regarding Tax Distributions) and Article 9 (regarding liquidating distributions), Operating Proceeds shall by distributed to the Members at such times as the Management Committee shall determine (but not less frequently than annually) in accordance with the following priorities:

                    (A)        First, to the Members having made Member Loans, in proportion and to the extent of each such Member’s unpaid Cumulative Loan Return;

                    (B)        Second, to the Members having made Member Loans, in proportion and to the extent of each such Member’s Unreturned Member Loan; and

                    (C)        Thereafter, to the Members in accordance with their Percentage Interests.

          Section 3.2     Tax Distributions.

                    (A)        Other than at liquidation of the Company, if and to the extent there are Operating Proceeds, the Management Committee shall cause the Company to make quarterly distributions (“Tax Distributions”) to the Members for the purpose of enabling them to pay federal, state and local taxes on their respective distributive shares of the aggregate net taxable income of the Company. Tax Distributions shall be made by the Company at the appropriate times to allow the Members to make their estimated tax payments. Subject to Section 3.2(B), the amount of Tax Distributions shall be equal to: (i) the cumulative net taxable income of the Company for the Fiscal Year (as estimated by the Management Committee), net of previously unrecouped tax losses of the Company, multiplied by (ii) a benchmark rate reflecting a composite federal, state and local income tax rate for the Members. The initial benchmark rate shall be 41%. The Management Committee may adjust the benchmark rate to reflect the then current status of the ordinary income and capital gains tax rates of the Code or other applicable Law.

                    (B)        The amount of Tax Distributions made in any fiscal quarter will be reduced to take into account any distributions previously made during such fiscal year pursuant to Section 3.1. If Operating Proceeds are not sufficient to satisfy the required Tax Distributions for a particular quarter, the Company will make up such deficit out of Operating Proceeds in future periods. If the total amount of Tax Distributions paid to the Members for a Fiscal Year exceeds the benchmark rate multiplied by the actual net taxable income of the Company for such Fiscal Year, the Tax Distributions for subsequent periods will be reduced by the amount of such overpayment.

Execution Copy

          Section 3.3     Distributions to be Made in Cash. All distributions (including Tax Distributions) to the Members shall be made in cash, and no Member shall have any right to demand and receive property other than cash as provided in this Agreement. In no event shall any Member be compelled or permitted to accept a distribution of any property other than cash from the Company. If the Members unanimously determine that the Company should make an in-kind distribution of Company property to one or more Members, such Company property shall be distributed to the Members in accordance with this Article 3 and Article 9, based on the fair market value of such property as determined by the Members.

          Section 3.4     Withholding and Offset.

                    (A)        The Company is authorized to deduct and withhold from distributions to a Member and to pay over to the appropriate foreign, federal, state or local government tax authority any amounts required to be withheld pursuant to the Code or any provisions of any other foreign, federal, state or local Law. Any amounts so deducted and withheld shall be treated as, and shall be credited against, Tax Distributions otherwise to be made to such Member.

                    (B)        The Company may, upon notice to the affected Member (the “Debtor Party”), withhold from any distribution, other than a Tax Distribution, any amount due and payable to the Company by the Debtor Party or its Affiliates and which is not paid when due. Any amounts withheld to offset or satisfy any such obligations pursuant to this Section 3.4(B) shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as if such amounts had been distributed to the Debtor Party. The rights and remedies provided in this Section 3.4(B) are in addition to, and not in limitation of, any other rights and remedies provided under this Agreement or under applicable Law.

ARTICLE 4.     ALLOCATION OF PROFITS AND LOSSES

          Section 4.1     Profits and Losses.

                    (A)        After giving effect to the special allocations set forth in Section 4.2, Profits for any Fiscal Year shall be allocated as follows:

                                  (1)     First, to the Members in proportion and to the extent of any Losses allocated pursuant to Section 4.1(B)(4);

                                  (2)     Second, to the Members in proportion and to the extent of any Losses allocated pursuant to Section 4.1(B)(3);

                                  (3)     Third, to the Members in proportion and to the extent of any Disproportionate Losses allocated pursuant to Section 4.1(B)(2);

                                  (4)     Fourth, to the Members in proportion and to the extent of any Losses other than Disproportionate Losses allocated pursuant to Section 4.1(B)(2);

                                  (5)     Fifth, to the Members with Unreturned Member Loans until the cumulative Profits allocated to such Members equal the Cumulative Loan Return; and


 

16




Execution Copy

                                (6)     Sixth, to the Members in accordance with their Percentage Interests.

                      (B)     After giving effect to the special allocations set forth in Section 4.2, Losses for any Fiscal Year shall be allocated as follows:

                                 (1)     First, to the Members to offset any allocations of Profits pursuant to Sections 4.1(A)(6), and then to the Members to offset any allocations of Profits pursuant to Sections 4.1(A)(5). To the extent any allocations of Profits pursuant to Section 4.1(A)(5) are offset by Losses, such Profit allocations shall be disregarded for purposes of computing subsequent Profit allocations;

                                 (2)     Second, to the Members in accordance with their Percentage Interests; provided, if the allocation of Loss would cause a Member to have an Adjusted Capital Account deficit (calculated without taking into account any Unreturned Member Loan of such Member), such Member shall be allocated only that amount of Loss as will reduce its Adjusted Capital Account balance (calculated without taking into account any Unreturned Member Loan of such Member) to zero. Loss that, absent application of the preceding sentence, would otherwise be allocated to such Member shall be allocated to the other Members subject to this Section 4.1(B)(2). Losses disproportionately allocated pursuant to the preceding sentence of this Section 4.1(B)(2) are “Disproportionate Losses;”

                                 (3)     Third, to the Members with Unreturned Member Loan in proportion and to the extent of their Unreturned Member Loan; provided, if the allocation of Loss would cause a Member to have an Adjusted Capital Account deficit, such Member shall be allocated only that amount of Loss as will reduce its Adjusted Capital Account balance to zero; and

                                 (4)     Fourth, to the Members in accordance with their Percentage Interests.

          Section 4.2     Regulatory and Curative Allocations. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 4.1:

 

 

 

          (A)         In order to comply with Treasury Regulation §§ 1.704-1(b) and 1.704-2, the minimum gain chargeback requirements in Treasury Regulation § 1.704-2(f) and 1.704-2(i)(4) are hereby incorporated in this Agreement. In addition, notwithstanding anything else in this Article 4, (i) deductions associated with Company nonrecourse liabilities described in Treasury Regulation § 1.704-2(c) shall be allocated in accordance with Percentage Interests, and (ii) deductions associated with Member nonrecourse liabilities described in Treasury Regulation § 1.704-2(i)(1) shall be allocated to the Member or Members who bear the economic risk of loss with respect to the Member nonrecourse liability to which such deductions are attributable, in accordance with Treasury Regulation § 1.704-2(i).

 

 

 

          (B)         If any Member unexpectedly receives an adjustment, allocation or distribution of the type contemplated by Treasury Regulation § 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), (5) and (6) that causes such Member to have an Adjusted Capital Account deficit, items

17





 

Execution Copy

 

 

 

of income and gain shall be allocated to all such Members (in proportion to the amounts of their respective Adjusted Capital Account deficits) in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate the deficit balances in such Members’ Capital Accounts that are in excess of such Members’ respective Adjusted Capital Account deficits, as quickly as possible. It is intended that this Section 4.2(B) qualify and be construed as a “qualified income offset” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation § 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d).

 

 

 

          (C)      To the extent an adjustment to the adjusted tax basis of any Company asset pursuant to Code Section 734(b) is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation §§ 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m)(2) or 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m)(4), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts as the result of a distribution to a Member in complete liquidation of its Membership Interest, the amount of such adjustment to the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain (if the adjustment increases the basis of the asset) or loss (if the adjustment decreases such basis) and such gain or loss shall be specially allocated to the Members in accordance with their interests in the Company in the event that Treasury Regulation § 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m)(2) applies, or to the Members to whom such distribution was made in the event that Treasury Regulation § 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m)(4) applies.

 

 

 

          (D)      The allocations set forth in Sections 4.2(A)–(C) (the “Regulatory Allocations”) are intended to comply with certain requirements of Treasury Regulation §§ 1.704-1(b) and 1.704-2. The Regulatory Allocations may not be consistent with the manner in which the Members intend to distribute the cash of the Company or allocate Company income or loss. Accordingly, the Management Committee is hereby authorized to allocate items of income, gain, loss and deduction to the Members so as to prevent the Regulatory Allocations from distorting the manner in which Company distributions will be divided among the Members. In general, the Members anticipate that this will be accomplished by specially allocating other items of income, gain, loss and deduction to the Members so that, to the extent possible, the net amount of such allocations and the Regulatory Allocations to the Members shall be equal to the net amount that would have been allocated among the Members if the Regulatory Allocations had not occurred. However, the Management Committee shall have discretion to accomplish this result in any reasonable manner, and in exercising this discretion, the Management Committee shall take into account future Regulatory Allocations under Section 4.2(A) that, although not yet made, are likely to offset other Regulatory Allocations previously made thereunder.

          Section 4.3     Tax Allocations. To the maximum extent possible, all items of Company income, gain, loss and deduction for federal income tax purposes shall be allocated among the Members for such purposes in the same manner in which the corresponding items computed for Capital Account purposes are allocated pursuant to Sections 4.1 and 4.2. Tax items with respect to Company property that is contributed to the Company with a Gross Asset Value that varies from its federal income tax basis in the hands of the contributing Member immediately preceding the contribution shall be allocated among the Members for federal income tax purposes pursuant to Treasury Regulations promulgated under Code Section 704(c) so as to take into account such variation. The Company shall account for any such variation under any method approved under Code Section 704(c) and the applicable Treasury Regulations as chosen by the Management

18




Execution Copy

Committee. If the Gross Asset Value of any Company asset is adjusted as provided in this Agreement, subsequent allocations of income, gain, loss and deduction with respect to such asset shall take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such asset for federal income tax purposes and its Gross Asset Value in the same manner as under Code Section 704(c) and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder. Any elections or other decisions


 

relating to the allocations in this Section 4.3 shall be made by the Management Committee in a manner that reflects the purpose and intention of this Agreement. Allocations pursuant to this Section 4.3 are solely for purposes of federal, state and local taxes and shall not affect, or in any way be taken into account in computing any Member’s Capital Account or share of Profits, Losses and any other items or distributions pursuant to any provision of this Agreement.

          Section 4.4     Other Allocation Rules. For purposes of determining the Profits, Losses and any other items of income, gain, loss and deduction allocable to any period, Profits, Losses and any such other items will be determined on a daily, monthly or other basis, as determined by the Management Committee using any permissible method under Code Section 706 and the Treasury Regulations thereunder.

ARTICLE 5.     ACCOUNTING AND TAX MATTERS

          Section 5.1     Accounting Methods; Company Records.

                    (A)        The Company’s books and records shall be prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied, except that the Capital Accounts of the Members shall be maintained as provided in this Agreement. An annual audit shall be conducted by an audit firm unanimously approved by the Management Committee, which audit shall be completed at the cost of the Company, no later than ninety (90) days after the Company’s Fiscal Year. The Company shall use the accrual method of accounting for both tax and accounting purposes.

                    (B)        The Company will deliver to each Member, (i) within ninety (90) days after the end of each Fiscal Year, audited financial statements of the Company, which shall include a balance sheet of the Company as of the end of such year, statements of income and expense and cash flow of the Company for such Fiscal Year, and a statement of members’ equity, each prepared in accordance with GAAP and including notes with respect thereto, all in reasonable detail, (ii) as soon as practicable after the end of each fiscal month and in any event within twenty (20) days thereafter, an unaudited balance sheet of the Company as of the end of such month, and statements of income and expense and cash flow of the Company for such month and for the year to date, prepared in accordance with GAAP and including notes with respect thereto, all in reasonable detail, and mortgage receivable portfolio statements and any other reports as may be reasonably requested by a Member.

                    (C)        The Management Committee shall cause the Company to comply with all record keeping requirements imposed by the Act, and shall provide each Member with the opportunity to inspect and copy such records (at such Member’s expense), at reasonable intervals, during ordinary business hours. Except as provided in this Agreement, neither the Management Committee nor any Member shall have any obligation to provide to any other

19




Execution Copy

Member a copy of the Certificate of Formation or any other document filed with the Delaware Secretary of State or other governmental authority on behalf of the Company.

          Section 5.2     Fiscal Year. The fiscal year of the Company (the “Fiscal Year”) shall be the calendar year or such other year as may be determined by the Management Committee or required by the Code.

          Section 5.3     Bank Accounts; Title to Business Property. The funds of the Company shall be deposited in such bank accounts, or invested in such interest-bearing or non-interest-bearing investments in the Company’s

The funds of the Company shall not be commingled with the funds of any other Person and the Management Committee shall not employ, or permit or cause any other Person to employ such finds in any manner except for the benefit of the Company.

such BP/Tracker Competitor’s retail sales, such as Sports Authority, Dick’s Sporting Goods, as they are currently constituted, and similar sporting goods companies.

                    (B)      Termination. The restrictions set forth in Section 7.6(A) shall terminate upon the termination of the Marketing Agreement (including any extensions thereof). Further, the restrictions set forth in Section 7.6(A) shall terminate:

Missouri; or at any property owned now or in the future by American Sportsman Holdings Co. BCLLC shall be permitted to sell, develop, market, advertise or promote any whole ownership real estate development.

                    (B)      Termination. The restrictions set forth in Section 7.7(A) shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the termination of the Marketing Agreement (as same may be extended) or (ii) upon the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event with respect to Bluegreen or Bluegreen Corporation.

          Section 7.8  BCLLC’s Right to Participate.

                    (A)     General. It is acknowledged by the Members that Bluegreen is in the business of developing, marketing and selling Resort Interest Programs, including timeshare projects. It is further acknowledged by the parties that there may arise the occasion where Bluegreen may consider developing a timeshare project based on the same concept as the Big Cedar Timeshare Project or the Red Rock Bluff Timeshare Project at other locations, which timeshare project will contain timeshare estates or interests (or portions thereof), units or other interests that will be marketed or sold at a price equal to or greater than the least expensive timeshare estates or interests (or portions thereof), units or other interests marketed or sold at the Big Cedar Timeshare Property or the Red Rock Bluff Timeshare Property (any such timeshare project, a “Proposed Project”). Bluegreen agrees that, subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 7.8, BCLLC shall have the exclusive, irrevocable and absolute right to “Participate” (as defined below) with Bluegreen in the development of a Proposed Project. A timeshare project shall be deemed to be based on the same concept as the Big Cedar Timeshare Project or the Red Rock Bluff Timeshare Project if it is founded upon an outdoor/wilderness/rustic theme, utilizing lodges and/or cabins, and using similar materials and architectural design. The right to “Participate” shall mean the right to co-develop and/or provide marketing and promotional services as such co-development or providing of services may be mutually agreed to by BCLLC

34

on the one hand, and Bluegreen on the other.

                    (B)      Limitations; Term. BCLLC’s right to Participate set forth in Section 7.8(A) shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the termination of the Marketing Agreement (as same may be extended) or (ii) the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event with respect to BCLLC.

                    (C)      Procedures for Exercise. If Bluegreen desires to develop a Proposed Project, then Bluegreen shall first offer in a written notice for BCLLC to Participate in the Proposed Project, specifying the terms and conditions of such Participation (the “Participation Offer Notice”). BCLLC shall have sixty (60) days from the date written notice was received to accept the offer to Participate, and if BCLLC does not accept the offer provided in the Participation Offer Notice within such period, BCLLC shall be deemed to have rejected the offer. If BCLLC does not accept such offer, then at the expiration of the sixty (60) day notice period (or such earlier date as the right to Participate has been expressly rejected in writing by BCLLC during such period), Bluegreen may offer the right to Participate to any Person who is not a BP/Tracker Competitor, provided that a binding letter of intent or similar agreement is entered into between Bluegreen and such Person within one hundred eighty (180) days after the expiration of such sixty (60) day notice period and Bluegreen does not elect to proceed with such Proposed Project itself without a co-development partner. If a binding letter of intent or similar agreement is not entered into between Bluegreen and such Person within one hundred eighty (180) days after the expiration of the sixty (60) day notice period and Bluegreen does not elect to proceed with such Proposed Project itself without a co-development partner, such proposed Participation shall again be subject to this Section 7.8 and shall require compliance by Bluegreen with the procedures described in this Section 7.8. Any information included in the Participation Offer Notice shall


 

be maintained by BCLLC as confidential information which may be disclosed by BCLLC only to inform Bass Pro, Inc. and their respective advisors, legal counsel, consultants and senior executives who have a need to know such information, and otherwise be disclosed only as required by applicable Law. The exercise or non-exercise of the rights of BCLLC under this Section 7.8 with respect to any Proposed Project shall not adversely affect its rights with respect to subsequent Proposed Projects under this Section 7.8.

          Section 7.9  Bluegreen’s Right to Participate.

                    (A)   General. If BCLLC and/or its Affiliates develop a Fractional Interest Development (or develops any Resort Interest Program as otherwise may be permitted under this Agreement), and determines that the same is to be developed through the participation of an additional investor, whether by joint venture, limited liability company, or otherwise, then BCLLC agrees, on behalf of itself and its Affiliates, that, subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 7.9, Bluegreen shall have the exclusive, irrevocable and absolute right to Participate (as defined above) with BCLLC and/or its Affiliates in such Fractional Interest Development or Resort Interest Program, as applicable.

                    (B)      Procedures for Exercise. Any election by Bluegreen to Participate shall be effective only if BCLLC (or its Affiliate) and Bluegreen execute a letter of understanding documenting their mutual agreement as to co-development and marketing and promotional services as relate to the proposed Fractional Interest Development or Resort Interest Program within sixty (60) days after Bluegreen receives written notice from BCLLC (or its Affiliate) of

35




Execution Copy

its intent to develop a Fractional Interest Development or Resort Interest Program. Such notice shall include a reasonable description of the Fractional Interest Development or Resort Interest Program. Such information as included in the notice shall be maintained by Bluegreen as confidential information which may be disclosed by Bluegreen only to its advisors, legal counsel, consultants and senior executives who have a need to know such information, and otherwise be disclosed only as required by applicable Law. If Bluegreen elects not to Participate or fails to execute a letter of understanding within sixty (60) days, then BCLLC (or its Affiliate) may proceed with such Fractional Interest Development or Resort Interest Program without Participation or involvement of Bluegreen.

                    (C)      Limitations; Term. Bluegreen’s right to Participate set forth in Section 7.9(A) shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the termination of the Marketing Agreement (as same may be extended) or (ii) the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event with respect to Bluegreen or BC.

          Section 7.10  Specific Rights, Authority and Obligations of the Members.

                    (A)      Marketing. Notwithstanding the other provisions hereof, Bluegreen and BCLLC shall cooperate to develop a mutually acceptable arrangement for the marketing and sales of timeshares in the Timeshare Projects. Specifically, BCLLC shall not assume day-to-day control of the marketing, sales, or operational aspects, or the back-of-house administrative activities of the timeshare business, all of which shall continue to be administered by Bluegreen pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and the Marketing Agreement; provided,  however, BCLLC shall have the right to establish the policies, procedures and guidelines applicable to the (i) use of the Bass Pro and Big Cedar brands and (ii) timeshare marketing and sales activities at the Timeshare Projects, and the Bass Pro retail outlets to the extent such activities affect Bass Pro/Big Cedar customers.


 

                    (B)      Brand Licensing Fees and Marketing Fees. During the term of this Agreement, the Company shall pay to BCLLC, for the promotional, marketing and advertising services contemplated by this Agreement and other Approved Agreements, a “Brand Licensing Fee” equal to five percent (5%), and a “Marketing Fee” equal to four and one-half percent (4.5%), respectively, of the Net Sales Volume of timeshare sales of the Company at the Red Rock Bluff Timeshare Project and any new units that are constructed on the grounds of the Big Cedar Timeshare Project and sold by or on behalf of the Company, excluding however, the Building 3000 Project; provided,  however, the net effect of the Brand Licensing Fee and Marketing Fee shall not collectively result in granting BCLLC an effective share greater than forty-four percent (44%) of the Field Operating Profit of the Company prior to the application of the Brand Licensing Fee and the Marketing Fee.

                    (C)      Transfer of Property / Club Arrangement. Notwithstanding any other provisions contained herein to the contrary, Bluegreen, acting by and through any of its authorized representatives, is expressly authorized to transfer and convey timeshare interests as may exist in the Timeshare Projects to purchasers thereof and accept therefor instruments of indebtedness relating to the sale and transfer of such timeshare interests, and is further authorized to sell or pledge such instruments of indebtedness, including promissory notes, mortgages or deeds of trust received from consumer purchasers of timeshare interests, which sales or pledges

36

may be to such third party entities as in the discretion, from time to time, determined by Bluegreen. In furtherance thereof, Bluegreen may transfer, whether by sale, pledge or otherwise, any and all collateral related to the sale of such timeshare interests as such third party may request, including but not limited to consumer transaction documents relating to the sale of timeshare interests which accompany the deed of trust and promissory note related thereto. In addition, Bluegreen, acting by and through any of its authorized representatives, is expressly authorized to arrange and implement the involvement or inclusion of the Timeshare Projects in the Bluegreen Vacation Club, and to provide for registration, marketing and sale of the timeshare interests in the Timeshare Projects as a part of or otherwise affiliated with the Bluegreen Vacation Club.

                    (D)     Shared Expense.

                              (1)     Bluegreen acknowledges that (i) pursuant to certain agreements executed in relation to this Agreement and the Original Operating Agreement, including, without limitation, that certain Easement Agreement dated as of June 15, 2000, by and among BCLLC, Three Johns Company, Bluegreen, the Big Cedar Owners’ Association, and the Company, certain owners of timeshare interests at the Big Cedar Timeshare Project and the Red Rock Bluff Timeshare Project shall have rights to be present on the premises of, and to use certain facilities of, the Big Cedar Lodge (the “Timeshare Owner Use”); (ii) such Timeshare Owner Use has directly contributed to the success of the Big Cedar Timeshare Project, and that the Timeshare Owner Use will continue to contribute to the success of the Timeshare Projects; and (iii) BCLLC has incurred and may incur future expenses and liabilities from time to time arising from accidents, injuries or other losses suffered by owners of timeshare interests at the Timeshare Projects as a result of the Timeshare Owner Use. In recognition of the foregoing, the Members agree that, in addition to any cost-sharing or indemnification that the Big Cedar Owners’ Association may provide to BCLLC, the Company shall, on an annual basis, pay to and reimburse BCLLC for 100% of all expenses or liabilities incurred by BCLLC as a result of the Timeshare Owner Use (net of any amounts covered by insurance or paid by the Big Cedar Owners’ Association).

                              (2)     BCLLC shall maintain insurance at least equal to the insurance it presently maintains. BCLLC shall submit to the Company an itemized list of expenses owing to BCLLC pursuant to Section 7.10(D)(1) no later than thirty (30) days prior to the end of each Fiscal Year. The Company shall inform BCLLC of any objections to BCLLC’s itemized list within twenty (20) days of receipt, and shall pay, to the extent not paid by the


 

Big Cedar Owners’ Association, directly to BCLLC all amounts to which there is no objection prior to the end of each Fiscal Year. The parties shall cooperate to come to an agreement as to any amounts subject to a Company objection as expeditiously as possible.

The Company will provide the Members complete access to and right to audit books and records of the Company, at the sole expense of the Member accessing such books and records and/or conducting such audit. Bluegreen shall provide BCLLC with a monthly report and certification of all timeshare sales of the Timeshare Projects with names of the purchasers, the same being due within twenty (20) days of the first of each calendar month.

ARTICLE 8.     TRANSFERS OF INTERESTS

          Section 8.1    Restrictions.

                    (A)      Except as provided in this Section 8.1 and each sub-part hereof, no Member may, without the prior consent of all of the Members, which consent may be withheld in such Member’s sole discretion, effect a Transfer of all or any part of his or her Membership Interest, provided, however, either Party may Transfer its Membership Interest: (i) to an Affiliate of such Member (after providing reasonable evidence to the Company or the other Member that the prospective Transferee is in fact an Affiliate to the extent the Company or the other Member requests such evidence) of the other Member; and (ii) to the Company in accordance with any agreement with the Company unanimously approved by the Management Committee. “Transfer” means any voluntary or involuntary transfer, sale, assignment, exchange, encumbrance, charging order or hypothecation or other disposition.

                    (B)      Voluntary Transfers in violation of the provisions hereof shall be void and of no effect for any purpose. Members who have effected Transfers of all of their Membership Interests shall have no further right, authority, and/or responsibility to participate in the management of the business and affairs of the Company.

                    (C)      Each party hereto acknowledges the reasonableness of the restrictions on Transfer imposed by this Agreement in view of the Company purposes and the relationship of the Members. Accordingly, the restrictions on Transfer contained herein shall be specifically enforceable. Each party hereto hereby further agrees to hold the Company and each Member wholly and completely harmless from any cost, liability, or damage (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, liabilities for income taxes, and the cost of enforcing this indemnity) incurred by any of such indemnified Persons as a result of a Transfer or an attempted Transfer by such party in violation of this Agreement.

          Section 8.2    Effect of Assignment; Documents.

                    (A)      Any Membership Interest transferred pursuant to the provisions of this Article 8 shall be subject to the restrictions and obligations set forth in this Agreement and no Transfer of any Membership Interest otherwise permitted hereunder (except for a pledge or collateral assignment to another Person) shall be effective for any purpose unless and until the party to whom such Membership Interest is being transferred has executed this Agreement (as amended) and agreed to be bound by all of its terms and provisions. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the Members or expressly provided herein, no Transfer permitted hereunder shall relieve the assignor from any of its obligations under this Agreement accruing prior to such Transfer.


 

                    (B)      In the event ownership of any Membership Interest is transferred to any other Person other than in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Article 8, such transferee shall succeed to such Membership Interest as an assignee only under the Act and, except for a successor permitted pursuant to Section 8.1, shall have no right to become a substitute Member or to participate in the management of the business and affairs of the Company and shall not be considered a “Member” under this Agreement or be a “member” as

38

that term is used in the Act with respect to such Membership Interest; provided,  however, such transferee shall (1) be liable for the obligations of his or her assignor under this Agreement attributable to such Membership Interest; (2) be subject to the continuing obligations attributable to such Membership Interest under this Agreement; and (3) be entitled to receive the distributions attributable to such Membership Interest under Articles 3 and 9 and allocations of Profits and Losses and other items under Article 4.

ARTICLE 9.     DISSOLUTION OF THE COMPANY

          Section 9.1     Liquidation Events.

                    (A)      No act, thing, occurrence, event, or circumstance shall cause or result in the dissolution of the Company except that the earliest to occur of any of the following events (a “Liquidation Event”) shall work an immediate dissolution of the Company:

                                (1)     December 31, 2057;

                                (2)     The sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the Business Property;

                                (3)     A decision to do so approved by all Members; or

                                (4)     Subject to Section 9.2 below, any event (each a “Dissociation Event”) described in Section 18-801 of the Act occurring with respect to a Member; provided,  however, the Members hereby agree that, upon the occurrence of (a) a permitted Transfer in accordance with the provisions of Article 8; or (b) a voluntary withdrawal of a Member in violation of the terms of this Agreement, the business and affairs of the Company shall be automatically continued by the Company and such event shall not constitute a Dissociation Event for purposes of this Agreement.

                    (B)     Notwithstanding any provision of the Act, each Member hereby covenants and agrees that the Members have entered into this Agreement based on their mutual expectation that all Members will continue as Members and carry out the duties and obligations undertaken by them hereunder and that, except as otherwise expressly required or permitted hereby, each Member covenants and agrees not to (1) take any action to dissolve the Company; (2) take any action that would cause a bankruptcy of such Member; (3) voluntarily withdraw or attempt to withdraw from the Company; (4) exercise any power under the Act to dissolve the Company; or (5) petition for judicial dissolution of the Company, without the unanimous consent of the Members not then in default hereunder.

          Section 9.2  Right to Continue Business and Affairs of Company.

                    (A)     Upon the occurrence of a Dissociation Event with respect to a Member (the “Dissociating Member”), the Dissociating Member shall give notice thereof to the other Members and such remaining Member(s)


 

may, within the ninety (90) day period following such occurrence, elect, by agreement of Members collectively holding more than fifty percent (50%) of the Percentage Interests then held by non-Dissociating Members, to continue the business and affairs of the Company for the balance of the term hereof (it being understood that if such an

39




Execution Copy

agreement is not executed within such ninety (90) day period, the Dissociation Event shall constitute a Liquidation Event). In the event any Member acquires knowledge of a Dissociation Event, that Member shall promptly give notice thereof, specifying the nature of the Dissociation Event and the identity of the Dissociating Member, to the Company and all of the other Members (including the Dissociating Member) and such notice shall be deemed to be notice from the Dissociating Member for purposes of this Section 9.2(A).

                    (B)      If the remaining Member(s) so elect to continue the business and affairs of the Company:

                               (1)     The Company shall not dissolve and its business and affairs shall be carried on without interruption, and without the necessity of the execution of any confirmatory agreement, under the same name and under the same terms and provisions as are set forth in this Agreement (as the same may be amended by the remaining Members); and

                               (2)     The Management Committee shall take such steps and make such filings as may be required to reflect such Dissociation Event and the continuation of the business and affairs of the Company.

          Section 9.3  Distribution of Proceeds on Dissolution; Winding Up; Reserves.

                    (A)     Upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event, the Company shall continue solely for the purposes of winding up its affairs in an orderly manner, liquidating its assets, and satisfying the claims of its creditors and Members and neither the Management Committee nor any General Manager or Member shall take any action that is inconsistent with, or not necessary to or appropriate for, winding up the Company’s business and affairs. To the extent not inconsistent with the foregoing, all covenants and obligations in this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect until such time as Dissolution Proceeds have been distributed pursuant to this Section 9.3 and the Company has filed a certificate of cancellation.

                    (B)     The General Manager or, if there is no General Manager, a Member appointed by the Members (in either case, the “Winding-Up Member”) shall be responsible for overseeing the winding up and liquidation of the Company. As soon as reasonably practical after the occurrence of a Liquidation Event, the Winding-Up Member shall file a notice of winding up and take such other actions as are required under the Act to dispose or make provision for the known and unknown claims against the Company. After filing the notice of winding up, the Winding-Up Member shall take full account of the Company’s liabilities and the Business Property, cause the Business Property to be liquidated as promptly as is consistent with obtaining the fair value thereof, and shall cause the proceeds therefrom and any other assets and funds of the Company (collectively, the “Dissolution Proceeds”) to the extent sufficient therefor, to be applied and distributed in the following order:

                              (1)     First, to the payment of all unpaid secured indebtedness of the Company to the extent of the lesser of the value of the secured property or the amount of the secured indebtedness;

                              (2)     Second, to the payment of the Company’s remaining indebtedness, including any Member Loan; and


 

40




Execution Copy

                              (3)     Third, the balance, if any, less such reserves (“Dissolution Reserves”) as the Winding-Up Member reasonably determines are necessary or appropriate for anticipated or contingent expenses of the Company, shall be distributed to the Members in accordance with Section 3.1.

                    (C)     To the extent the Winding-Up Member subsequently determines Dissolution Reserves (or any part thereof) to be unnecessary for Company expenses, he or she shall cause such amounts to be distributed or paid to the Members or other Persons who would have received the proceeds comprising such Dissolution Reserves under this Section 9.3 as if such proceeds had not been used to fund Dissolution Reserves.

                    (D)     When all of the remaining property and assets of the Company have been applied and distributed as provided in this Section 9.3, the Winding-Up Member shall file a certificate of cancellation as provided in the Act and take such other actions as may be necessary to cause the Company to withdraw from all jurisdictions where the Company is then authorized to transact business.

          Section 9.4  Allocations Upon Dissolution. Profits and Losses from an event causing dissolution pursuant to Section 9.1 shall be allocated among the Members so that after such allocations and the other allocations under this Agreement, to the maximum extent possible the final Capital Account balances of the Members are at levels which would permit liquidating distributions, if made in accordance with such final Capital Account balances, to be equal to the distributions that will occur under Section 9.3(B)(3). To the extent that the allocation provisions of this Agreement would not produce such target Capital Account balances, the Members agree to take such actions as are reasonably necessary to amend such allocation provisions to produce such balances so long as such amendments are permissible under the applicable tax Law.

No representation, inducement, promise, understanding, condition or warranty not set forth in this Agreement or the Approved Agreements has been made or relied upon by any party to this Agreement. This Agreement is not intended to confer upon any Person other than the Members and the Company any rights or remedies hereunder.

          Section 10.3 Amendments. This Agreement may be amended only by agreement executed by all the Members.

          Section 10.4 Miscellaneous. Time is of the essence with respect to this Agreement. Except as herein otherwise specifically provided, this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their legal representatives, successors and assigns, and no other Person shall acquire or have any right under or by virtue of this Agreement. Captions contained in this Agreement in no way define or limit the scope or intent of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement, or the application of any such provision to any Person or

42




Execution Copy

circumstance shall be held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future Laws effective during the term hereof, the remainder of this Agreement, or the application of such provision to any other Persons or circumstances, shall not be affected thereby and shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof. In lieu of such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision, there shall be added automatically as a part hereof a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, as may be possible and be legal, valid and enforceable. Every exhibit, schedule and other appendix attached to this Agreement and referred to herein is incorporated in this Agreement by reference. All capitalized terms are defined herein and are used as so defined. This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts and all so executed shall constitute one Agreement, binding on all the parties hereto, notwithstanding that all the parties are not signatories to the original or same counterpart. Should a provision of this Agreement require judicial interpretation, it is agreed that the judicial body interpreting or construing the same shall not apply the assumption that the terms hereof shall be more strictly construed against one party by reason of the rule of construction that an instrument is to be more strictly construed against the party which itself, or through its agent, prepared the same, it being agreed that the agents of all parties have participated or had the opportunity to participate in the preparation of this Agreement.

          Section 10.5      GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE WITHOUT REFERENCE TO ITS INTERNAL CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPALS.

          Section 10.6      Submission to Jurisdiction. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably (A) agree that any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of or based upon this Agreement shall be instituted only in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Missouri, (B) waive, to the fullest extent it may effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to venue of any such proceeding and (C) submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action or proceeding.

          Section 10.7      Remedies.

                    (A)           If the Company or any party obtains a judgment against any other party by reason of breach of this Agreement, a reasonable attorneys’ fee as fixed by the court shall be included in such judgment. Any Member shall be entitled to maintain, on its own behalf or on behalf of the Company, any action or proceeding against any other Member or the Company (including, any action for damages, specific performance, or declaratory relief) for or by reason of breach by such party of this Agreement, notwithstanding the fact that any or all of the parties to such proceeding may then be Members in the Company, and without dissolving the Company as a limited liability company; provided,  however, the liability of any Member or the Company for or by reason of breach by such party of this Agreement shall be limited as set forth herein.

                    (B)           The remedies conferred upon the Company or any Member in this Agreement are intended to be exclusive of any other remedy herein or by Law provided or permitted. No failure or delay on the part of a Member or the Company to exercise any right it may have in the event of an act or omission giving rise to a claim hereunder in accordance with

43




Execution Copy


 

the terms of this Agreement by a Member shall prevent the exercise of such right by such Member or the Company at any time such Member defaulting as provided for in this Agreement, may continue to be so in default, and no such failure or delay shall operate as a waiver of any default. Notwithstanding the limitations of liability as provided for in this Agreement, each party to this Agreement agrees that the Members would be irreparably damaged if any of the provisions of this Agreement are not performed in accordance with their specific terms and that monetary damages would not provide an adequate remedy in such event. Accordingly, it is agreed that, in addition to the remedies to which the non-breaching Members may be entitled in accordance with the terms hereof the non-breaching Members shall be entitled to injunctive relief to prevent breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and specifically to enforce the terms and provisions hereof in any action instituted in any court of the United States or any state thereof having subject matter jurisdiction thereof.

          (C)      No waiver by a Member or the Company of any breach of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a waiver of any other breach of any kind or nature and no acceptance of payment or performance by a Member or the Company after any such breach shall be deemed to be a waiver of any breach of this Agreement whether or not such Member or the company knows of such breach at the time it accepts such payment or performance.

          (D)      In the event of any dispute or disagreement between the Members, such party shall give written notification of such dispute or disagreement to, if such party is BCLLC or any their Affiliates, John M. Maloney, Jr., or the person then performing the duties at Bluegreen currently performed by John M. Maloney, Jr., (“Bluegreen CEO”) and if such party is Bluegreen, acting as Bluegreen, Bluegreen Affiliates or the Company, to James A. Hagale or the person then performing the duties at BCLLC currently performed by James A. Hagale (together with the Bluegreen CEO, the “CEOs”); and (iii) the CEOs shall communicate with each other promptly with a view to resolving such dispute or disagreement within ninety (90) days of commencing any negotiations (or such extended period as the CEOs agree is appropriate in any such case). The foregoing shall be a condition precedent to applicability of the remedies set forth in this Section 10.7. During any period of such communications, all services prior to any claimed default shall continue without any alteration or modification, except as acceptable to the party receiving such services.

          Section 10.8      Representations and Warranties. Each Member warrants, represents, agrees and acknowledges: (1) that it has adequate means of providing for its current needs and foreseeable future contingencies, and anticipates no need now or in the foreseeable future to sell its Membership Interest; (2) that it acquired its Membership Interest for its own account as a long-term investment and without a present view to make any distribution, resale or fractionalization thereof; (3) that it and its independent counselors have such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that they are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment involved in its acquisition of its Membership Interest and they have evaluated the same; (4) that it is able to bear the economic risks of such investment; (5) that it and its independent counselors have made such investigation of the Company (including its business prospects and financial condition) and the Members have had access to all information regarding the Company and the Members, and have had an opportunity to ask all of the questions regarding the Company and the Members as they deem necessary to fully evaluate its investment therein; (6) that in connection with its acquisition of its Membership Interest, it has been fully

44




Execution Copy

informed by its independent counsel as to the applicability of the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 and all applicable state securities or “blue-sky” laws to its Membership Interest; (7) that it understands that (a) its Membership Interest is not registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law; (b) there is no market for its Membership Interest and that it will be unable to transfer its Membership Interest unless such is so registered or unless the transfer complies with an exemption from such registration (evidence of which must be satisfactory to counsel for the Company); (c) such Membership Interest cannot be expected to be readily transferred or liquidated;


 

(d) its acquisition of a Membership Interest in the Company involves a high degree of risk; and (e) that no representations are or have been made to it by the Management Committee, any Member, or their respective representatives as to any tax advantages which may inure to its benefit or as to the Company’s status for tax purposes, and that it has relied upon its independent counsel with respect to such matters.

          Section 10.9      Financial Reporting. In addition to the requirements set forth in Section 5.1(A), the Management Committee shall periodically, and at no time less than quarterly, establish financial reporting in respect to the Company, which financial reporting shall be delivered to BCLLC and Bluegreen, and which financial reporting shall be a compilation of sales of timeshare interests, income arising therefrom, and expenses of the Company, inclusive of marketing, sales and operating expenses. Such financial reporting shall include an income statement, balance sheet or other information as may be reasonably required.

          Section 10.10      Confidentiality; Public Announcements.

                    (A)             Each Member covenants and agrees (i) to receive and hold in strict confidence all Proprietary Information received by such Member, its Affiliates and/or representatives and to use such Proprietary Information only in connection with the businesses of the Company and such Member’s investment therein, and (ii) to cause its representatives and Affiliates, including any members of the Management Committee, to comply with the preceding clause (i).

                    (B)             Section 10.10(A) hereof shall not apply to any Proprietary Information which a Member can establish to have: (i) been disclosed by such Member with the Company’s prior written consent; (ii) become generally available to the public other than as a result of disclosure by such Member in breach of this Section 10.10 or any other obligations of confidentiality that a Member may have to the Company; (iii) been independently developed by such Member outside the scope of agreements with the Company through Persons (including any representatives of such Member) who have not had actual knowledge of such Proprietary Information; (iv) been rightfully obtained by such Member from a third party without knowledge that such third party is obligated to protect its confidentiality; provided that such Member has used all reasonable efforts to determine whether such third party has any such obligation; (v) been obligated to be produced or disclosed pursuant to applicable law, provided that such Member seeks appropriate protective relief from all or part of such disclosure; or (vi) been used in connection with litigation between the parties.

                    (C)             Any publicity release, advertisement, filing, public statement or announcement made, regarding this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby, or BCLLC or any of its Affiliates is to be first reviewed by, and must be reasonably satisfactory
