Re: Limited Liability Company Agreement of FC +
Skanska Modular, LLC ("FC+Skanska") dated
October 31, 2012 ("LLC Agreement")
Dear Mr. Kennedy:
We have been retained by FCRC Modular, LLC in connection with the above
LLC Agreement between our client and Skanska Modular LLC. In that regard, we have
reviewed the LLC Agreement as well as your letter of today's date in which you threaten to
unilaterally furlough the trade associates and issue notices under the federal and state "WARN
Acts" tomorrow.
It is our position that these actions violate Section 8.9(a)(iii) of the LLC
Agreement in that they constitute "Major Decisions not subject to a Project Decision Exception"
that "effect [] material changes in the Business or the strategic direction of the Company that are
not specified in an Annual Business Plan approved by the Board." As you are no doubt aware,
under Section 8.9, any such decisions may not be made by any officer of FC+Skanska without
approval of the Board of Directors. It is our understanding that FC+Skanska's Board met
yesterday and in no way approved any furlough of trade associates or the issuance of any WARN
Act notices. Thus, the threat to take these actions must be rescinded immediately.
By disregarding the terms of the LLC Agreement and proceeding without Board
approval after you obviously came to the conclusion that such approval was required, you will be
taking actions that are not in good faith and constitute a willful breach of the LLC Agreement.

In the event that you do so, our client intends to hold both Skanska Modular LLC and you
personally responsible for the significant damage these actions will cause.
In addition, please provide us or our clients with a copy of the written notice
received by FC+Skanska under its Purchase Order for Prefabricated Modules for the B2
Residential Project at Atlantic Yards as well as any future notices you may receive.
