Under Chapter 35 of the Indiana Business Corporation Law (the “IBCL”), directors are required to discharge their duties in good faith, with the care that an ordinarily prudent person in a like position would exercise under similar circumstances and in a manner that the directors reasonably believe to be in the best interests of the corporation. Under the IBCL, a director is not liable for any action taken as a director, or any failure to act, regardless of the nature of the alleged breach of duty (including alleged breaches of the duty of care, the duty of loyalty, and the duty of good faith) unless the director has breached or failed to perform the duties of the director’s office and the breach or failure to perform constitutes willful misconduct or recklessness. This exculpation from liability under the IBCL does not affect the liability of directors for violations of the federal securities laws.


The Company’s officers and directors are indemnified under Indiana law, the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (the “Articles of Incorporation”) and its Amended and Restated Bylaws, as amended (the “Bylaws”), as well as the Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement, as amended (the “Partnership Agreement”) of Washington Prime Group, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), against certain liabilities.


Chapter 37 of the Indiana Business Corporation law (the “IBCL”) authorizes every Indiana corporation to indemnify its officers and directors, subject to the limitations and procedures therein, against liability for judgments, settlements, penalties, fines and reasonable expenses incurred in connection with threatened, pending or completed actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative and whether formal or informal, to which the officers or directors are made a party by reason of their relationship to the corporation. Officers and directors may be indemnified where they have acted in good faith and, in the case of conduct in their official capacity, they reasonably believed the conduct was in the corporation’s best interests, and in all other cases, they reasonably believed the conduct was not against the best interests of the corporation, and in the case of criminal proceedings they either had reasonable cause to believe the conduct was lawful or there was no reasonable cause to believe the conduct was unlawful. Chapter 37 of the IBCL also requires every Indiana corporation to indemnify any of its officers or directors (unless limited by the articles of incorporation of the corporation) who were wholly successful, on the merits or otherwise, in the defense of any such proceeding against reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the proceeding.
