1. To adopt seven proposals by which we would amend and restate the Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership:

Amendments relating to the revision of the definition of “Tax-Exempt Investments,” and providing the General Partner with express authority to acquire, hold, and invest in securities on behalf of the Partnership other than mortgage investments and tax-exempt investments, including investments that would be taxable for federal income tax purposes, and to make loans to unaffiliated third parties which are fully-secured by real estate.

 

  1B. LP Agreement Amendment Proposal 1B

Amendments relating to providing the General Partner the express authority to engage in a Unit split or similar transaction, issue Partnership securities in one or more classes or series, issue options, warrants, rights, and other equity instruments relating to Units under employee benefit plans and executive compensation plans, and engage in spin-offs and similar transactions.

Amendment relating to deleting the automatic expiration date of the Partnership and making the term of the Partnership continue indefinitely.

Amendments relating to revising a number of provisions to remove references to the General Partner owing fiduciary duties to the limited partners and BUC holders.

 

  1F. LP Agreement Amendment Proposal 1F

Amendments to the Limited Partnership Agreement that are intended to protect the Partnership and its Unitholders from unsolicited acquisition tactics which could be coercive and unfair to Unitholders.

 

  1G. LP Agreement Amendment Proposal 1G

Amendments relating to clarifying name references to the Partnership, clarifying the fully-paid and non-assessable nature of issued Units, clarifying the General Partner has authority to acquire and hold real property through the foreclosure of a mortgage revenue bond, and making certain other immaterial and ministerial revisions to update and modernize the Limited Partnership Agreement.
