2.2 Other Operations of Manager.

2.2.1 Operation of Other Managed Resorts. Tenant acknowledges that it has selected Manager to Operate the Manager Operated Areas on behalf of Tenant in substantial part because of Manager’s, and Affiliates of Manager’s, management and operation of a chain of first-class hotels and resorts. Tenant further acknowledges that it has determined, on an overall basis, that the benefits of (a) utilizing Manager’s and its Affiliates’ expertise, especially in the [            ] market; and (b) having the Resort operated as part of the Managed Resorts are substantial, notwithstanding that all hotels owned, Operated and/or managed by Manager might not benefit equally. Tenant acknowledges that Manager and/or its Affiliates presently own and manage various hotel and casino properties around the world including those located within the State of Nevada and in Las Vegas or Clark County (i.e., [Caesars Palace, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Harrah’s Laughlin, Flamingo Las Vegas, Rio Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall and Saloon, Planet Hollywood and Imperial Palace]) and in Atlantic City, New Jersey (i.e., [Harrah’s Atlantic City, Showboat Atlantic City, Bally’s Atlantic City and Caesars Atlantic City]), which may directly or indirectly compete with the business of the Hotel. Tenant further acknowledges that in certain respects all hotels and casinos compete on a national, regional and local basis with other hotels and casinos, and that conflicts may, from time to time, arise between the Hotel and the Casino and/or the Resort and the Other Managed Resorts. Accordingly, provided that Manager is at all times operating the Resort in compliance with the Operating Standard, Tenant shall have no right to object to and hereby waives any conflict in the ownership and Operation by Manager or its Affiliates of any and all Other Managed Resorts (including the Other Managed Resorts). In furtherance of the foregoing, Manager shall have no obligation to minimize conflict between the Resort and the Other Managed Resorts but intends to proceed, in its Operation of the Manager Operated Areas and in the operation and management of the Other Managed Resorts, in a good faith manner and in a manner reasonably deemed to serve the overall best interests, on a long term basis, of the Managed Resorts as a group. The Parties agree that this Section 2.2 shall constitute the entirety of Manager’s obligations with respect to any such potential conflicts of interest regarding competition between the Hotel and the Casino and/or the Resort and the Other Managed Resorts.

2.2.2 Placement Rights. Subject to the Property-Specific License Agreement and that certain license agreement by and between Landlord and HLC for the right for HLC to use certain intellectual property specific to the Resort, Manager and its Affiliates shall have the right to include the Resort in marketing programs (including any marketing program included as part of Centralized Services and any specific marketing program for the Resort) carried out in conjunction with the Other Managed Resorts and, as more specifically described in Section 2.1.2 above, promote and/or advertise its Other Managed Resorts at the Resort including, without limitation, using any “Harrah’s” trade name or any Trademarks licensed pursuant to the System License Agreement. Manager shall request, pursuant to the Shared Services Agreement, that HOC advertise the Resort in a manner which is not materially different than with respect to the hotels/casinos comprising the Other Managed Resorts in [                ].

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the CMBS Financing Documents, Manager shall have the authority to cause the disbursement of funds on deposit in the Operating Account in connection with Manager’s management and operation of the Resort as set forth herein.

5.4 Purchasing. Manager or its Affiliates may, in its discretion, make centralized purchasing programs available to the Managed Resorts (whether on a national, regional, mandatory, optional or other basis) (each, a “Purchasing Program”). Manager shall make its Purchasing Program available to the Resort on terms not materially different that those offered to Other Managed Resorts (including the Other CMBS Entities) in Nevada or New Jersey. Manager may elect, in its discretion, but subject to the terms of this Section 5.4, to purchase any FF&E and Supplies for the Operation of the Manager Operated Areas from a Purchasing Program maintained by Manager or its Affiliates, provided that Manager shall use reasonable efforts to ensure the total cost of goods and services (including any mark-up, expense, fees and/or other remuneration attributable to providing such services and net of any discounts or rebates which would have been available) determined as a whole and on an annual basis is generally on terms no less favorable to Tenant than that which would be available through unrelated third-party vendors in an arm’s-length transaction. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Manager and its Affiliates shall have the right, from time to time, to (a) modify the fees, costs or terms of any such Purchasing Program, including adding FF&E and Supplies to, and deleting FF&E and Supplies from, such Purchasing Program; (b) terminate all or any portion of any such Purchasing Program; (c) subject to this Section 5.4, receive payments, fees, commissions or reimbursements from suppliers and third parties in respect of such purchases; and (d) subject to this Section 5.4, own or have investments in such suppliers.

5.7 Limitation on Manager’s Obligations.

5.7.1 Availability of Sufficient Funds. Manager’s obligations under this Agreement are subject in all respects to the availability of sufficient funds from the Operation of the Manager Operated Areas, or which are otherwise provided by Tenant. All costs and expenses of Operating the Manager Operated Areas shall be payable out of funds from the Operating Accounts, or which are otherwise provided by Tenant. In no event shall Manager be obligated to pledge or use its own credit or advance any of its own funds to pay any such costs or expenses for the Manager Operated Areas. Accordingly, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Manager shall be relieved from its obligations to Operate the Manager Operated Areas in compliance with the Operating Standard and in accordance with this Agreement whenever and to the extent that Manager is prevented or restricted in any way from doing so by reason of (a) the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event; (b) Tenant’s breach of its obligation to provide sufficient funds as required under this Agreement following any foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure under the Mortgage; or (c) any limitation or restriction in this Agreement on Manager’s authority or ability to expend funds in respect of the Manager Operated Areas, but solely to the extent such limitation or restriction prevents Manager from performing its obligations hereunder.

5.7.2 Pre-Existing Conditions and External Events. If any environmental, construction, personnel, real property-related or other problems arise at the Manager Operated Areas during the Term that (a) relate to the Operation or condition of the Manager Operated Areas, or activities undertaken at the Manager Operated Areas or on the Land, prior to the Effective Date; or (b) are caused by or arise from sources outside of the Manager Operated Areas, Manager’s services under this Agreement shall not extend to management of any remediation, abatement or other correction of such problems, and Tenant shall retain full managerial and financial responsibility and liability for and control over the remediation, abatement and correction of such problems, and shall take such actions in a timely manner with as little disturbance or interruption of the use and Operation of the Manager Operated Areas as reasonably practicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event such problems exist, Manager may elect, in its sole and absolute discretion, to undertake reasonable remediation, abatement and correction efforts; provided, however, if there is a reasonable likelihood that such problems could cause criminal or civil liability to Manager or damage to the Manager Operated Areas or injury to persons or property and regardless of whether or not Tenant has requested Manager to take any such curative actions, Manager shall have the right to take all reasonably necessary steps to comply with any Applicable Law, or to avoid criminal or civil liability to Manager, or damage to the Manager Operated Areas or injury to Persons or property; provided, further, that any and all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Manager in connection therewith shall be paid or reimbursed promptly by Tenant.

Tenant hereby represents, warrants and covenants that through the date hereof it has at all times collected, stored, transmitted, processed and maintained in all material respects all Resort Guest Data and Employee Data in a manner that would permit Manager and/or Tenant to transfer such Resort Guest Data and Employee Data subject to and in accordance with Section 13.4.4 of this Agreement. Each of Tenant and Manager hereby represents, warrants and covenants that at all times during the term of this Agreement it shall collect, store, transmit, process and maintain in all material respects all Resort Guest Data and Employee Data in accordance with all Applicable Laws and all privacy policies in place from time to time in connection with the Operation of the Resort. Each of Tenant and Manager hereby represents, warrants and covenants that at all times during the term of this Agreement it shall collect, store, transmit, process and maintain in all material respects all Resort Guest Data and Employee Data in a manner that would permit Manager and/or Tenant to transfer such Resort Guest Data and Employee Data subject to and in accordance with Section 13.4.4 of this Agreement. Each of Tenant and Manager agrees and acknowledges that the privacy policies applicable to the Resort Guest Data and Employee Data may not be amended, supplemented or otherwise changed in a manner that would expressly prohibit Manager and/or Tenant from transferring such Resort Guest Data and Employee Data to Landlord or Landlord’s designee in accordance with Section 13.4.4 of this Agreement without the prior written consent of Lender.

Any Assignment by a Party in violation of the terms of this ARTICLE VIII shall be void and of no force or effect as between the Parties and shall constitute an Event of Default. In no event shall an Alternate Manager have the right to earn greater or additional fees or expenses than those set forth in this Agreement.

8.2 Transfers and Permitted Assignments. Landlord shall be permitted to collaterally assign its rights under this Agreement pursuant to the CMBS Financing Documents. Additionally, subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the CMBS Financing Documents and the Operating Leases, Tenant and Manager agree that any transactions whereby Tenant and Manager continue to be majority owned and controlled by HET (provided there shall have been no Transfer of Control in HET) shall be permitted, provided that immediately prior to such Assignment, no Event of Default (under and as defined in the Operating Lease and the CMBS Financing Documents) shall have occurred and be continuing.

Tenant or Manager shall pay, on demand, the other Party’s and Mortgagee’s reasonable costs and expenses in connection with their consideration of whether to grant any such consent to an Assignment (but no fee in excess of $750 shall be charged in connection therewith except as set forth in the Mortgage Loan Agreement).

8.5 Effect of Permitted Transfer. Consent to any particular Transfer shall not be deemed to be consent to any other Transfer or a waiver of the requirement that consent be obtained in the case of any other Transfer.

Subject to Sections 9.3.3 and 9.3.4, Tenant shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Manager and its Affiliates, and their respective shareholders, members, partners, trustees, beneficiaries, directors, officers, employees and agents, and the successors and assigns of each of the foregoing (collectively, the “Manager Indemnified Parties”) for, from and against any and all Claims that any such party may have alleged against it, incur, become responsible for or pay out for any reason related to: (a) the design, construction, development, or ownership of the Resort; (b) the Resort (whether directly or indirectly, in whole or in part) to the extent arising or occurring prior to or subsequent to the Effective Date; or (c) Manager’s remediation, abatement and/or correction efforts as may be exercised in connection with Manager’s rights under Section 5.7.2, except in each case to the extent any Claim is caused by Manager’s Gross Negligence or Willful Misconduct.

Subject to Sections 9.3.3 and 9.3.4, Manager shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Tenant, Landlord, Mortgagee, each Lender and their respective Affiliates and their shareholders, members, partners, trustees, beneficiaries, directors, officers, employees and agents, and the successors and assigns of each of the foregoing (collectively, the “Tenant Indemnified Parties”) for, from and against any and all Claims that any Tenant Indemnified Party or Parties may incur, become responsible for, or pay out to the extent caused by Manager’s Gross Negligence or Willful Misconduct.

9.3.3 Insurance Coverage. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 9.3, the Parties shall look first to the appropriate insurance coverages in effect pursuant to this Agreement or the Mortgage Loan Agreement prior to seeking indemnification under this Section 9.3 in the event any claim or liability occurs as a result of injury to persons or damage to property, regardless of the cause of such claim or liability; provided, however, if the insurance company denies coverage or reserves rights as to coverage, then the Indemnified Parties shall have the right to seek indemnification, without first looking to such insurance coverage. In addition, nothing contained in this Section 9.3 shall in any way affect the releases set forth in Section 9.2.1.

9.3.4 Indemnification Procedures. Any Indemnified Party shall be entitled, upon written notice to the Indemnifying Party, to the timely appointment of counsel by the Indemnifying Party for the defense of any Claim, which counsel shall be subject to the approval of the Indemnified Party. If, in the Indemnified Party’s reasonable judgment, a material conflict of interest exists between the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party at any time during the defense of the Indemnified Party, the Indemnified Party may appoint independent counsel of its choice for the defense of the Indemnified Party as to such Claim. In addition, regardless of whether the Indemnified Party has appointed counsel or selects independent counsel (a) the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense of any Claim and approve any proposed settlement of such Claim (unless such settlement involves only the payment of money, the Indemnifying Party pays all amounts due in connection with or by reason of such settlement and, as part thereof, the Indemnified Party is unconditionally released from all liability in respect of such Claim, in which case such approval shall not be required); and (b) all reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) of the Indemnified Party shall be paid by the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party fails to timely pay such costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs), the Indemnified Party shall have the right, but not the obligation, to pay such amounts and be reimbursed by the Indemnifying Party for the same, together with interest thereon in accordance with Section 3.5 until paid in full. The Parties hereby acknowledge that it shall not be a defense to a demand for indemnity that less than all Claims asserted against the Indemnified Party are subject to indemnification. If a Claim is covered by the Indemnifying Party’s liability insurance, the Indemnified Party shall not knowingly take or omit to take any action that would cause the insurer not to defend such Claim or to disclaim liability in respect thereof. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to create a benefit for a third party except for Mortgagee, Lenders, and for other Indemnified Parties.

9.3.5 Survival. This Section 9.3 shall survive the expiration or any termination of this Agreement.

(b) Manager agrees that, immediately following the earliest to occur of (i) the thirtieth (30 th) day following a Lease Default (unless Mortgagee or a servicer on its behalf sends to Manager and Tenant a notice, within such thirty (30) days following the Lease Default, to the effect that such Lease Default shall not automatically trigger the Transition Period Commencement Date), (ii) at any time following the occurrence of a Mortgage Loan Default, the receipt by Manager and Tenant of a notice from Mortgagee (or a servicer on its behalf) requesting that the Transition Period commence (and confirming that Mortgagee is prepared for the Transition Period to commence), or (iii) the 30th day following a foreclosure or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure of the Premises (unless, within such thirty (30) days following such foreclosure, deed-in-lieu or assignment, Mortgagee or a servicer on its behalf sends to Manager and Tenant a notice to the effect that the foreclosure or deed-in-lieu shall not automatically trigger the Transition Period Commencement Date) (the earliest such date being hereinafter referred to as the “Transition Period Commencement Date”), Manager shall continue to manage the Resort pursuant to and subject to the terms of this Agreement and, in addition, in order to facilitate the orderly transition of the business of the Casino and the Resort as a going concern and the ability of Mortgagee to transfer that business to a third party subsequent to the commencement of the Transition Period, Manager shall provide cooperation and transition assistance to Landlord, any successor owner of the Resort and/or any third party replacement manager or management company identified by Landlord or any owner of the Resort in connection with its replacement of any of the Proprietary Information and Systems, Software, Manuals, and/or Identifiers owned and/or licensed by Manager and used by Manager or any Person in managing and Operating the Resort and/or providing any other services under this Agreement and the transfer of any Tenant Proprietary Information and Systems that is in the sole possession and/or control of Manager, its Affiliates or any other Person (such services, collectively, the “Transition Services”) for a period of two (2) years from the Transition Period Commencement Date (or less, (i) if Mortgagee or a servicer on its behalf notifies Manager that it is terminating the Transition Period prior to the expiration of such two (2)-year period or (ii) if Manager terminates this Agreement pursuant to a Tenant Event of Default under Section 13.3.1(b)) (such period, the “Transition Period”), provided that, except for its obligations to transfer Tenant Proprietary Information and Systems and other data required to be transferred under Section 13.4.4, nothing in this Agreement shall require Manager to share any Manager Confidential Information with any Prohibited Person. For the avoidance of doubt, during the pendency of the Transition Period, (i) the Operating Fees, Reimbursable Expenses, Shared Services Charges and all other amounts payable hereunder shall continue to be payable in the amounts, and as otherwise, set forth herein (provided that Manager (and not Tenant, pursuant to Section 13.2.2) is performing the duties and obligations of Manager hereunder including the Transition Services) and (ii) this Agreement shall otherwise not terminate until the end of the Transition Period.

The right of termination shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights or remedies at law or in equity by reason of the occurrence of any such Event of Default, it being understood and agreed that the exercise of the remedy of termination shall not constitute an election of remedies and shall be without prejudice to any such other rights or remedies otherwise available to the non-defaulting Party.
