TRANSACTIONS WITH MANAGING SHAREHOLDER AND AFFILIATES
4. TRANSACTIONS WITH MANAGING SHAREHOLDER AND AFFILIATES

The Fund operates pursuant to the terms of a management agreement with the Managing Shareholder ("Management Agreement"). Under the terms of the Management Agreement, the Managing Shareholder provides certain management, administrative and advisory services, and provides office space to the Fund. The Fund has historically been obligated to pay the Managing Shareholder an annual management fee of $1,645, an amount equal to 2.5% of the total contributed capital of the Fund, as compensation for the services the Managing Shareholder provides to the Fund. The management fee was to be paid in monthly installments and, to the extent that the Fund did not pay the management fee on a timely basis, the Fund accrued interest at an annual rate of 10% on the unpaid balance. For the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, the Fund paid management fees of $0 and $25, respectively and waived the balances of management fees otherwise due. Beginning in 2012, the Managing Shareholder agreed to cease charging management fees under the settlement agreement described in Note 3.
Under the Fund's Declaration of Trust ("Declaration of Trust"), the Managing Shareholder has historically been entitled to receive, concurrently with the shareholders of the Fund, other than the Managing Shareholder, 1% of all distributions from operations made by the Fund in a year until the shareholders received distributions in that year equal to 12% per annum of their equity contribution. Thereafter, the Managing Shareholder was entitled to receive 25% of the distributions for the remainder of the year. The Managing Shareholder was entitled to receive 1% of the proceeds from dispositions of Fund property until the shareholders, other than the Managing Shareholder, received cumulative distributions equal to their original investment ("Payout"). After Payout, the Managing Shareholder was entitled to receive 25% of all remaining distributions of the Fund. The Managing Shareholder did not receive any distributions during 2012 and 2011, and, as part of the settlement agreement described in Note 3, has agreed to waive any further distributions it otherwise might be entitled to receive. The Fund has not reached Payout and is not expected to do so.
RRP owns 2.25 Investor Shares of the Fund. Under the settlement agreement described in Note 3, RRP has waived its right to receive any future distributions that would otherwise be allocated to the Investor Shares. In addition, the Fund granted the Managing Shareholder a single Management Share representing the Managing Shareholder's management rights.
