Agreements [Abstract]  
On December 1, 2011, the Company executed a Management Agreement with Corridor InfraTrust Management, LLC (“Corridor”). Under the Management Agreement, Corridor (i) presents the Company with suitable acquisition opportunities consistent with the investment policies and objectives of the Company, (ii) is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Company, and (iii) performs such services and activities relating to the assets and operations of the Company as may be appropriate. The terms of the Management Agreement, as revised effective as of January 1, 2014, include a quarterly management fee equal to 0.25 percent (1.00 percent annualized) of the value of the Company’s Managed Assets as of the end of such quarter. For purposes of the Management Agreement, “Managed Assets” means the total assets of the Company (including any securities receivables, other personal property or real property purchased with or attributable to any borrowed funds) minus (A) the initial invested value of all non-controlling interests, (B) the value of any hedged derivative assets, (C) any prepaid expenses, and (D) all of the accrued liabilities other than (1) deferred taxes and (2) debt entered into for the purpose of leverage. For purposes of the definition of Managed Assets, the Company’s securities portfolio will be valued at then current market value. For purposes of the definition of Managed Assets, other personal property and real property assets will include real and other personal property owned and the assets of the Company invested, directly or indirectly, in equity interests in or loans secured by real estate or personal property (including acquisition related costs and acquisition costs that may be allocated to intangibles or are unallocated), valued at the aggregate historical cost, before reserves for depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or bad debts or other similar noncash reserves.
The Management Agreement also includes a quarterly incentive fee of 10 percent of the increase in distributions paid over a threshold distribution equal to $0.125 per share per quarter. The Management Agreement also requires at least half of any incentive fees to be reinvested in the Company’s common stock. A new Management Agreement between the Company and Corridor was approved by the Board of Directors and became effective July1, 2013. The new agreement does not change in any respect the terms for determination or payment of compensation for the Manager, does not have a specific term, and will remain in place unless terminated by the Company or the Manager in the manner permitted pursuant to the agreement. The new management agreement was amended as of January 1, 2014 to change the methodology for calculating the quarterly management fee. The new method is not expected to have a material impact on the compensation payable to the manager.
Tortoise Capital Advisors, L.L.C. (“TCA”) served as the Company’s administrator until Corridor assumed TCA's Administrative Agreement during the fourth quarter of 2012, retroactive to an effective date of August 7, 2012. The Company pays the administrator a fee equal to an annual rate of 0.04 percent of managed assets, with a minimum annual fee of $30 thousand.
On December 1, 2011, we entered into an Advisory Agreement by and among the Company, TCA and Corridor, under which TCA provided certain securities focused investment services necessary to evaluate, monitor and liquidate the Company’s securities portfolio (“Designated Advisory Services”), and also provides the Company with certain operational (i.e. non-investment) services (“Designated Operational Services”). Effective December 21, 2012, that agreement was replaced by an Amended Advisory Agreement pursuant to which TCA provides investment services related to the monitoring and disposition of our current securities portfolio.
U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC serves as the Company’s fund accounting services provider. The Company pays the provider a monthly fee computed at an annual rate of $24 thousand on the first $50 million of the Company’s Net Assets, 0.0125 percent on the next $200 million of Net Assets, 0.0075 percent on the next $250 million of Net Assets and 0.0025 percent on the balance of the Company’s Net Assets.
