          (a) The Paying Parties entitled to reimbursement from the Nomura

          (i)  each Paying Party that is a partner in SSI (or a partner in any
               such partner) and is not a Nomura Guarantor will be entitled to
               reimbursement from the Nomura Guarantors of all Reimbursable
               Payments made in respect of the Nomura Loan by such Paying Party,

          (ii) each Nomura Guarantor will be entitled to reimbursement from the
               other Nomura Guarantors to the extent that such Nomura Guarantor
               made Reimbursable Payments in respect of the Nomura Loan that
               exceeded such Nomura Guarantor's Required Payment.

          The total amount of the reimbursement due to the Paying Parties under
          this paragraph (a) is referred to as the "Reimbursement Amount."

          (b) Each Nomura Guarantor that has paid less than its Required Payment
          will be required to contribute the following amounts to the payment of
          the Reimbursement Amount:

          (i)  Franklin will contribute the lesser of (x) the Reimbursement
               Amount and (y) the amount by which the aggregate Reimbursable
               Payments by Franklin in respect of the Nomura Loan were less than
               Franklin's Required Payment, and

          (ii) to the extent that the amount due from Franklin pursuant to
               clause (b)(i) is less than the Reimbursement Amount, then each of
               the other Nomura Guarantors will contribute to the deficiency to
               the extent that the aggregate Reimbursable Payments by such
               Nomura Guarantor in respect of the Nomura Loan were less than
               such Nomura Guarantor's Required Payment.

          (c) The amounts required to be contributed by the Nomura Guarantors
          pursuant to clause (b) will be distributed (i) to the Paying Parties
          who are not Nomura Guarantors to reimburse the portion of the
          Reimbursement Amount due to such Paying Party, (ii) to Franklin to the
          extent that it has paid more than its Required Payment, and (iii) to
          each of the other four Nomura Guarantors to the extent that such
          Nomura Guarantor has paid more than its Required Payment; provided
          that if the amount contributed by the Nomura Guarantors is less than
          the Reimbursement Amount, the amount contributed will be distributed
          among the Paying Parties entitled to reimbursement pro rata (based on
          the portion of the Reimbursement Amount payable to such Paying Party).

     D.   Pursuant to and subject to the terms of the Westminster Guaranty,
          Westminster is obligated to make certain payments to Northwestern with
          respect to the Northwestern Loan. Pursuant to this section 3-D,
          Westminster shall reimburse any Paying Party for Reimbursable Payments
          made with respect to the Northwestern Loan for which Westminster would
          have been liable under the Westminster Guaranty if such payments had
          not been made by the Paying Party.

     E.   Any Reimbursable Payments made by the Paying Parties with respect to
          any Loan (other than the Nomura Loan and the Northwestern Loan) shall
          be reimbursed by Dearborn LLC. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence,
          the Reimbursement Obligation of Dearborn LLC under this section 3-E
          will be limited to the lesser of (i) the excess of the deficit in

          Dearborn LLC's Required Payment, and (ii) the excess of $115,471,190
          over the sum of (x) Dearborn LLC's Required Payment plus (y) the Saul
          Trust's Required Payment.

     F.   To the extent that any Reimbursable Payments made by the Paying
          Parties with respect to any Loan (other than the Nomura Loan and the
          Northwestern Loan) are not reimbursed under section 3-E of this
          Agreement, such payments shall reimbursed by the Saul Trust.
          Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Saul Trust's Reimbursement
          Obligations under this section 3-F shall be limited to the excess of
          $115,471,190 over the sum of (i) Dearborn LLC's Reimbursement
          Obligations under section 3-E, (ii) Dearborn LLC's Required Payment,
          and (iii) the Saul Trust's Required Payment.

     G.   The Other Reimbursing Parties shall reimburse all Reimbursable
          Payments made by any of the Paying Parties with respect to the Loans

without penalty, to the next succeeding Business Day, and such extended time
shall not be included in the computation of interest.

regardless of whether or not any of the lenders transfers (through an
assignment, participation or otherwise) all or a portion of their interest in
any one or more of such Loans or another person otherwise becomes a lender with
respect to such Loans.
