Sub-lessee

The Boulevard Hotel Co., Ltd.

The Boulevard Hotel Co., Ltd. (“Boulevard”) is a special purpose vehicle (SPV), established under total registered capital of 20 Million Baht, which objective is to rent the Fund’s immovable property. Boulevard, in return, has to make profit and payback compensation to the Fund. In addition, UOBAM has specified SPV’s conditions, as ‘Bankruptcy Remote’, to prevent the creation of contingent liabilities by SPV, which may cause some damages to unitholders of the Fund. Another main reason to establish an SPV is due to an announcement of the Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), prohibiting the Fund to operate a hotel business directly. The Fund, therefore, has to lease out its hotel building property type to an experienced company in hotel business only. Several shareholders of Boulevard, especially Mr. Kirin Narula, Mr. Narin Narula, Mr. Varin Narula and Mr. Lak Narula, are holding shares in the Quality Inn Co., Ltd., now serving as the lessor of the Fund’s property. They have been in hospitality business for many years.

To lease the property to the sub-lessee, as referred to above, the Fund will enter a subleasing contract, under leasing duration of 3 years each, under a fixed and variable rental fee (as detailed in the Prospectus). Furthermore, under a contract executed by Mr. Kirin Narula and Mr. Narin Narula, as directors of the Boulevard Hotel Co., Ltd., with the Fund, there will be a guarantee for a minimum lease income of approximately 173,044,241 Baht a year, for lease periods in Years 1 and 2, and approximately 163,479,241 Baht a year for lease periods in Years 3, 4 and 5. Mr. Kirin Narula and Mr. Narin Narula together agree to place a bank guarantee issued by a domestic commercial bank, under the total credit line of Baht 100,000,000, specifying the Fund as the beneficiary, for the Fund to secure lease income for that 5-year period. In this regard, Mr. Kirin Narula and Mr. Narin Narula may place the bank guarantee by themselves, or entrust other party to place the bank guarantee on their behalves.

Besides, the sub-lessee agrees to continue leasing the property of the Fund in case where the Fund has shown its intent, or exercised its right to urge the sub-lessee to renew the subleasing contract after the end of the contract, which will not exceed 9 renewals of 3 years each. The provisions and conditions shall remain unchanged from the former contract, including the right for contract renewal of three years each, after the end of each subleasing contract. The fixed rental fee may be subject to change, as agreed to otherwise by the Fund and sub-lessee. The Fund may consider allowing the sub-lessee to renew the lease contract in case there is no breach of contract throughout the lease period. In case where the Fund wishes to renew the lease contract to the sub-lessee, the Fund shall send a notice of at least three months in advance to the sub-lessee before the end of the sub-leasing contract.

In an event of change in the sub-lessee, there may be changes in provisions and conditions of the sub-leasing contract, including the rental fee calculation method.
