Landlord does hereby demise and lease to Tenant, and Tenant does hereby hire and take from Landlord, the Premises hereinafter mentioned and described (hereinafter referred to as "Premises"), upon and subject to the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease for the term hereinafter stated: 1. REFERENCE DATA Each reference in this Lease to any of the terms and titles contained in any Exhibit attached to this Lease shall be deemed and construed to incorporate the data stated under that term or title in such Exhibit. 2. DESCRIPTION OF DEMISED PREMISES 2.1 DEMISED PREMISES. The Premises are that portion of the Building as described in Exhibit 1 and is hereinafter referred to as "Building", substantially as shown hatched or outlined on the Lease Plan (Exhibit 2) hereto attached and incorporated by reference as a part hereof. 2.2 APPURTENANT RIGHTS. Tenant shall have, as appurtenant to the Premises, rights to use in common, with others entitled thereto, subject to reasonable rules from time to time made by Landlord of which Tenant is given notice; (a) the common lobbies, hallways, stairways and elevators of the Building, serving the Premises in common with others, (b) common walkways necessary for access to the Building, and (c) if the Premises include less than the entire rentable area of any floor, the common toilets and other common facilities of such floor; and no other appurtenant rights or easements. Landlord shall allow Tenant's telecommunication service provider to have access to the Building and to Tenant's Premises, provided however, that Landlord shall have the right to charge Tenant's provider fees in connection with the services being performed by such provider. Notwithstanding the foregoing, so long as Tenant's telecommunications service provider ("Provider") does not provide telecommunications service to any other tenant of the Building, Landlord shall not require such Provider to pay any fees for such access. 2.3 PARKING. During the term of the Lease, commencing on the Rent Commencement Date (and, if there is more than one Rent Commencement Date pursuant to Article 3.1 hereof commencing on a pro rata basis with each such Rent Commencement Date), the Landlord will make available, at Tenant's written request, which request must be made on or before the Full Rent Commencement Date, up to one and one-half (1.5) monthly parking passes per 1,000 square feet of Total Rentable Area leased by Tenant (the "Parking Space Cap") for use in the garage of the Complex or surface parking areas in the Building, as the same may change from time to time ("Parking Areas"). If Tenant fails timely to make such request for any such parking passes, Tenant shall have no right to obtain such parking passes under this Article 2.3, except to the extent thereafter available, as more specifically set forth herein. If Tenant requests fewer passes than the Parking Space Cap prior to the Full Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall have the right, from time to time during the term of the Lease, to request additional parking passes up to the Parking Space Cap. If Landlord has such passes available, Landlord will provide the same to Tenant (but in no event more than the Parking Space Cap), provided -1- 10 however, that, if such passes are not available, Landlord shall have no obligation to provide additional passes to Tenant. Tenant shall have no right to sublet, assign, or otherwise transfer said parking passes, other than to an Assignee or a Qualified Transferee pursuant to an approved assignment or sublease under Article 16 of the Lease. Said parking passes shall be paid for by Tenant at the then current prevailing rate in the Parking Areas, as such rate may vary from time to time. If, for any reason, Tenant shall fail timely to pay the charge for said parking passes, and if such default continues for ten (10) days after written notice, Tenant shall have no further right to the parking passes for which Tenant failed to pay the charge under this Article 2.3. Said parking passes will be on an unassigned, non-reserved basis, and shall be subject to such reasonable and uniform rules and regulations as may be in effect for the use of said Parking Areas (including, without limitation, Landlord's right, without additional charge to Tenant above the prevailing rate for parking passes, to institute a valet or attendant-managed parking system), from time to time in force. 2.4 EXCLUSIONS AND RESERVATIONS. All the perimeter walls of the Premises except the inner surfaces thereof, any balconies (except to the extent same are shown as part of the Premises on the Lease Plan (Exhibit 2)), terraces or roofs adjacent to the Premises, and any space in or adjacent to the Premises used for shafts, stacks, pipes, conduits, wires and appurtenant fixtures, fan rooms, ducts, electric or other utilities, sinks or other Building facilities, and the use thereof, as well as the right of access through the Premises for the purposes of operation, maintenance, decoration and repair, are expressly excluded from the Premises and reserved to Landlord. 3.

In each such instance of Landlord's Force Majeure, Landlord shall exercise reasonable diligence to eliminate the cause of such inability to perform. (b) The "FIRST SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION DATE" shall be defined as the date on which the Landlord's Work Necessary to Trigger Term Commencement Date, as defined in Article 4.0(g), has been substantially completed, so that any remaining Landlord's Work can be performed with a minimum of interference or delay in the progress of Tenant's Work on the fifth floor, Tenant acknowledging, however, the priority of Landlord's Work, as set forth in Article 4.2(c).

The Landlord Work Necessary to Trigger Term Commencement Date; ii.) The Landlord Work Necessary to Trigger Third and Fourth Floor Substantial Completion Date; iii.) The Landlord Work Necessary to Trigger First and Second Floor Substantial Completion Date; iv.) The following items of Landlord's Work, to the extent not included in clauses (i), (ii), and (iii) of this Article 4.0(j): (a) Curtainwall; (b) Roofing; (c) Windows; (d) Elevators; (e) Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing Systems for Building Core & Shell; (f) Building Cores including bathroom, mechanical, electrical, and telephone/data rooms; (g) Building Lobby and Lobby interior finishes to the extent which would be necessary to satisfy the Certificate of Occupancy Test, as defined in Article 4.0(l); (h) Mechanical/Electrical & Plumbing finishes; (i) Base Building Fire Alarm Panels & Life Safety Systems; (j) Exterior walkways at least five (5) feet wide and sufficient to permit access to and egress from the Premises and adjacent public streets and parking areas, as well as around the perimeter of the Building; and (k) All elements of Landlord's Work necessary to satisfy the Certificate of Occupancy Test, as further defined in Article 4.0(l). Any portion of Landlord's Work which is not completed on or before the Base Building Substantial Completion Date which affects a particular portion of the Premises, or the access thereto, shall be completed within thirty (30) days after a Certificate of Occupancy has been issued for such portion of the Premises, except for (x) items of Landlord Work which are not complete due to delays caused by weather (for those items which are weather-sensitive), and (y) items of Landlord Work which are not complete due to delays caused by long lead time items and causes beyond Landlord's reasonable control (provided, however, that items of Landlord Work which are not complete due to delays caused by long lead time items and causes beyond Landlord's reasonable control shall in any event be completed within ninety (90) days after the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy for the portion of the Premises in question). Without limiting the foregoing, the final balancing of mechanical systems need not be completed as of the Rent Commencement Date, however, the air handling units serving the Premises shall be -6- 15 operational (the date such units are made operational being herein referred to as the "HVAC Operational Date").

(l) CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY TEST. i.) As a Condition to the Base Building Substantial Completion Date. Reference is made to clauses (g) and (j) of Article 4.0(j)(iv), which provide that, as a condition to achieving the Base Building Substantial Completion Date, Landlord's Work must have been completed to the extent necessary to enable Tenant to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy for the Premises (hereinafter referred to as the "Certificate of Occupancy Test"). Landlord shall apply to the Building Inspector of the City of Cambridge ("Building Inspector") for a Certificate of Occupancy with respect to Landlord's Work ("Base Building") in order to assist the parties in determining whether the Base Building Substantial Completion Date has occurred. If the Building Inspector issues a Base Building Certificate of Occupancy, the Certificate of Occupancy Test shall be conclusively deemed to have been satisfied. The parties acknowledge that: (a) if Tenant's Work has not progressed to the point where Tenant is able to apply for a Certificate of Occupancy with respect to at least a portion of the Premises, the Building Inspector may not be willing to perform such inspection, (b) given that Tenant's Work includes a portion of the sprinkler system, the Building Inspector may not be able to issue a Base Building Certificate of Occupancy if Tenant's Work is not complete, and (c) other incomplete portions of Tenant's Work may prevent Landlord from obtaining a Base Building Certificate of Occupancy. If the Building Inspector is willing to perform such inspection and if the Building Inspector denies the issuance of the Base Building Certificate of Occupancy based solely on deficiencies identified by the Building Inspector in Landlord's Work, then the Certificate of Occupancy Test shall not be deemed satisfied until Landlord corrects such deficiencies to the satisfaction of the Building Inspector. If, despite Landlord's application for a Base Building Certificate of Occupancy, the Building Inspector does not perform such inspection, or if the Building Inspector performs such inspection, but does not identify any deficiencies in Landlord's Work and does not issue a Base Building Certificate of Occupancy, then the Certificate of Occupancy Test may still be satisfied as follows: Landlord shall notify Tenant when it believes that all of Landlord's Work necessary for Tenant to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy has been substantially completed ("Landlord's Completion Notice"). If Tenant disputes Landlord's assertion of substantial -7- 16 completion, it shall so notify Landlord within ten (10) days after receipt of Landlord's Completion Notice, whereupon such dispute shall be immediately submitted to arbitration in accordance with the provisions of Article 29.5. The parties hereby acknowledge that Tenant, and not Landlord, is responsible for all items of Tenant's Work which must be completed in order to enable Tenant to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy for the Premises and in no event shall Landlord be deemed to have failed to satisfy the Certificate of Occupancy Test based upon any deficiency or lack of completion of Tenant's Work. ii.) Tenant's Inability to Obtain a Certificate of Occupancy after the Occurrence of the Base Building Substantial Completion Date. If the Base Building Substantial Completion Date (i.e. and the Rent Commencement Date) occurs prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy with respect to any portion of the Premises, and if, subsequently Tenant is denied a Certificate of Occupancy with respect to any portion of the Premises, solely by reason of any deficiency in Landlord's Work, then: (x) Landlord shall, as promptly as possible, remedy such deficiency so as to remove such impediment to Tenant's obtaining such Certificate of Occupancy, and (y) Tenant's obligation to pay Yearly Rent and other charges due under the Lease in respect of the portion of the Premises which Tenant is unable to occupy because it cannot obtain such Certificate of Occupancy shall be fully abated during the period of time commencing as of the date that Tenant is denied such Certificate of Occupancy until Landlord cures such deficiency in Landlord's Work so that it is no longer prevents Tenant from obtaining such Certificate of Occupancy. (m) TENANT DELAY. A "Tenant Delay" shall be defined as any act or omission by Tenant, or any agent, employee, consultant, contractor, or subcontractor of Tenant, which causes an actual delay in the performance of Landlord's Work Necessary to Trigger Full Rent Commencement Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no event shall be deemed to be a Tenant Delay until and unless Landlord has given Tenant written notice ("Tenant Delay Notice") advising Tenant: (i) that a Tenant Delay is occurring, (ii) of the basis on which Landlord has determined that a Tenant Delay is occurring, and (iii) the actions which Landlord believes that Tenant must take to eliminate such Tenant Delay. No period of time prior to the time that Tenant receives a Tenant Delay Notice shall be included in the period of time charged to Tenant pursuant to such Tenant Delay Notice. (n) LANDLORD DELAY. A "Landlord Delay" shall be defined as any act or omission by Landlord or any agent, employee, consultant, contractor or subcontractor of Landlord which: (i) is not a result of the priority granted to Landlord's Work as set forth in Article 4.2(c) hereof, and (ii) causes an actual delay in the performance of Tenant's Work. Notwithstanding the foregoing, except as set forth in Article 4.2(e), no event shall be deemed to be a Landlord Delay until and unless Tenant has given Landlord written notice ("Landlord Delay Notice") advising Landlord: (i) that a Landlord Delay is occurring, (ii) of the basis on which Tenant has determined that a Landlord Delay is occurring, and (iii) the actions which Tenant believes that Landlord must take to eliminate such Landlord Delay. No period of time prior to the time that Landlord receives a Landlord Delay Notice shall be included in the period of time charged to Landlord pursuant to such Landlord Delay Notice. (o) LANDLORD'S WARRANTY; SATISFACTION OF LANDLORD'S OBLIGATIONS UNDER ARTICLE 4. -8- 17 i.) Landlord's Warranty. Landlord warrants to Tenant that: (x) materials and equipment furnished in the performance of Landlord's Work will be of good quality and new unless otherwise required or permitted by the Base Building Specifications, (y) Landlord's Work will be free from defects not inherent in the quality required or permitted under the Base Building Specifications, and (z) Landlord's Work will conform the requirements of the Base Building Specifications. Any portion of Landlord's Work not conforming to the requirements of this clause (i), including substitutions not properly approved and authorized, may be considered defective. Landlord's warranty excludes remedy for damage or defect caused by abuse, modifications not executed by Landlord, improper or insufficient maintenance (other than by Landlord, where Landlord is required to perform maintenance on the item or system in question), improper operation (other than by Landlord, where Landlord operates the item or system in question), or normal wear and tear and normal usage. ii.) Warranty Period. Landlord shall be deemed to have satisfied all of its obligations under this Article 4 (including, without limitation, Landlord's warranty obligations under this Article 4.0(o) and under Article 4.3) except to the extent that, on or before the Warranty Expiration Date, as hereinafter defined, Tenant gives written notice to Landlord in accordance with the provisions of Article 27 setting forth with specificity the manner in which Tenant believes that Landlord has failed to comply with its obligations under this Article 4. The "Warranty Expiration Date" shall be defined as the date three hundred fifty-eight (358) days after the Full Rent Commencement Date. iii.) Repair of Defective Work. Landlord agrees that it shall, without cost to Tenant, correct any portion of Landlord's Work which is found not to be in accordance with the requirements of the warranties set forth in this Article 4.0(o) and in Article 4.3, unless Tenant has previously given Landlord a written acceptance of such condition, provided that: Tenant gives Landlord written notice of such condition in accordance with the provisions of Article 27 promptly after it becomes aware of such condition, and in any event on or before the Warranty Expiration Date. The provisions of this Article 4.0(o) shall not relieve Landlord of any obligation which Landlord has to make repairs or to perform maintenance pursuant to Article 8 of the Lease. (p) Any dispute between the parties with respect to the provisions of this Article 4 shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance with Article 29.5. 4.1 TENANT'S REMEDIES BASED ON DELAYS IN LANDLORD'S WORK. (a) If the Term Commencement Date shall not have occurred on or before October 1, 2001 ("INITIAL OUTSIDE COMPLETION DATE") (which date shall be extended for up to ninety (90) days on account of any Force Majeure Delays, as hereinafter defined), Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Landlord of Tenant's desire to do so before such completion and within the time period from the Initial Outside Completion Date (as so extended) until the date which is thirty (30) days subsequent to the Initial Outside Completion Date (as so extended); and, upon the giving of such notice, the Term of this Lease shall cease and come to an end without further liability or obligation on the part of either party unless, within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, the Term Commencement Date occurs.

Landlord shall make such payment to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Tenant delivers to Landlord evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord of the amount such costs. Landlord shall have the right to audit Tenant's books and records with respect to Tenant's costs. (b) If the Base Building Substantial Completion Date does not occur on or before March 1, 2002 ("INTERIM OUTSIDE COMPLETION DATE") (which date shall be extended (i) for the period of any Tenant Delays, and (ii) for up to ninety (90) days on account of any Force Majeure Delays), Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Landlord of Tenant's desire to do so before such completion and within the time period from the Interim Outside Completion Date (as so extended) until the date which is thirty (30) days subsequent to the Interim Outside Completion Date (as so extended); and, upon the giving of such notice ("Effective Termination Date"), the Term of this Lease shall cease and come to an end without further liability or obligation on the part of either party unless the Base Building Substantial Completion Date occurs on or before the date thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice (as so extended). If Tenant has occupied part of the Premises for the Permitted Use prior to such termination, then the Effective Termination Date with respect to the part of the Premises so occupied shall be ninety (90) days subsequent to the Interim Outside Completion Date (as so extended). If Tenant terminates the Lease pursuant to this Paragraph (b), Landlord shall return to Tenant any Letter of Credit given by Tenant to Landlord within fifteen (15) business days after Landlord's receipt written request for such return from Tenant, and Landlord shall reimburse Tenant an amount equal to the actual cost incurred by Tenant through the Effective Termination Date in performing and designing the Tenant's Work to the extent that such amount exceeds any portion of Landlord's Contribution theretofore paid to or for the account of Tenant. Landlord shall make such payment to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Tenant delivers to Landlord evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord of the amount such costs. Landlord shall have the right to audit Tenant's books and records with respect to Tenant's costs. (c) If the Base Building Substantial Completion Date does not occur on or before June 1, 2002 ("FINAL OUTSIDE COMPLETION DATE") (which date shall be extended for the period of any Tenant Delays), Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Landlord of Tenant's desire to do so before such completion and within the time period from the Final Outside Completion Date until the date which is thirty (30) days subsequent to the Final Outside Completion Date; and, upon the giving of such notice ("Effective Termination Date"), the Term of this Lease shall cease and come to an end without further liability or obligation on the part of either party unless the Base Building Substantial Completion Date occurs on or before the date thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice. If Tenant has occupied part of the Premises for the Permitted Use prior to such termination, then the Effective Termination Date with respect to the part of the Premises so occupied shall be ninety (90) days subsequent to the Final Outside Completion Date. If Tenant terminates the Lease pursuant to this Paragraph (c), Landlord shall return to Tenant any Letter of Credit given by Tenant to Landlord within fifteen (15) business days after Landlord's receipt written request for such return from Tenant, and Landlord shall reimburse Tenant an amount equal to the actual cost incurred by Tenant through the Effective Termination Date in performing and designing the Tenant's Work to the extent that such amount exceeds any portion of Landlord's Contribution theretofore paid to or for the account of Tenant. Landlord shall make such payment to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Tenant delivers to -10- 19 Landlord evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord of the amount such costs. Landlord shall have the right to audit Tenant's books and records with respect to Tenant's costs. (d) FORCE MAJEURE DELAYS. For the purposes of this Article 4.1, "Force Majeure Delays" shall be defined as any delays in the performance of Landlord's Work to the extent arising from causes beyond Landlord's reasonable control other than Tenant Delays, provided however, that no delay shall be deemed to be a Force Majeure Delay unless Landlord advises Tenant in writing of such delay on or before the date thirty (30) days after Landlord first becomes aware of such delay. (e) RENT CREDIT. If the Full Rent Commencement Date has not occurred for all or a portion of the Premises on or before the Liquidated Damage Date, as hereinafter defined, then with respect to those portion(s) of the Premises with respect to which the Rent Commencement Date has not occurred, Tenant shall be entitled to a credit against the Yearly Rent on a day-for-day basis for the lesser of (i) the number of days from the Liquidated Damage Date to but not including the Rent Commencement Date with respect to such portion(s) of the Premises, and (ii) one hundred eighty (180) days. The "Liquidated Damage Date" shall be defined as December 1, 2001. (f) The remedies set forth in this Article 4.1 are Tenant's sole and exclusive rights and remedies based upon any delay in the performance of Landlord's Work. If Tenant terminates this Lease pursuant to this Article 4.1, then the Third Amendment to the Building 500 Lease (as defined in Article 21.1 hereof) shall also thereby be automatically terminated and of no further force and effect. 4.2 TENANT'S WORK. (a) Tenant shall, on or before the Outside Tenant Work Commencement Date, commence the performance of the work ("Tenant's Work") necessary to prepare the Premises for Tenant's occupancy, and Tenant shall thereafter diligently prosecute the Tenant's Work to completion. The "OUTSIDE TENANT WORK COMMENCEMENT DATE" shall be defined as the date nine (9) months after the Term Commencement Date, provided that if Tenant is delayed in the commencement of Tenant's Work by reason of causes beyond Tenant's reasonable control, the Outside Tenant Work Commencement Date shall be extended by the lesser of: (i) the period of time which Tenant is so delayed, or (ii) three (3) additional months (i.e. in no event shall the Outside Tenant Work Commencement Date occur later than the date one (1) year after the Term Commencement Date). (b) Tenant shall substantially complete Tenant's Work on or before the Outside Tenant Work Completion Date. The "OUTSIDE TENANT WORK COMPLETION DATE" shall be defined as the date fifteen (15) months after the Full Rent Commencement Date, provided that if Tenant is delayed in the performance of Tenant's Work by reason of causes beyond Tenant's reasonable control, the Outside Tenant Work Completion Date shall be extended by the lesser of: (i) the period of time which Tenant is so delayed, or (ii) three (3) additional months (i.e. in no event shall the Outside Tenant Work Completion Date occur later than the date eighteen (18) months after the Full Rent Commencement Date). (c) COST OF TENANT'S WORK; PRIORITY OF WORK. Except for Landlord's Contribution, as set forth in Article 6.2, all of the Tenant's Work shall be performed at Tenant's -11- 20 sole cost and expense, and shall be performed in accordance with the provisions of this Lease (including, without limitation, Articles 11 and 12). Tenant and Landlord shall each take necessary reasonable measures to the end that Tenant's contractors and Landlord's contractors shall cooperate in all ways with Landlord's contractors to avoid any delay in either Landlord's Work or Tenant's Work or any conflict with the performance of either Landlord's Work or Tenant's Work, Tenant acknowledging, however, that in the case of conflict that is not reasonably avoidable, the performance of Landlord's Work shall have priority. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additional rent, within ten (10) days of billing therefor, charges (which shall be reasonably based on Tenant's usage) for the use of elevators and/or hoisting in connection with the performance of Tenant's Work. Tenant shall have access to the Premises and the Building on a 24-hour a day, 365-day a year basis in order to perform Tenant's Work. Landlord and Tenant recognize that to the extent Tenant elects to perform some or all of Tenant's Work during times other than normal construction hours, Landlord will need to make arrangements to have supervisory personnel on site. Accordingly, Landlord and Tenant agree as follows: Tenant shall give Landlord at least five (5) days' written notice of any time outside of normal construction hours (i.e., Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., excluding holidays) when Tenant intends to perform portions of Tenant's Work (the "After Hours Work"). Landlord shall pay the cost of the first one hundred hours, in the aggregate, of Landlord's supervisory personnel overseeing the After Hours Work. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, within thirty (30) days after demand therefor, for the cost of all additional hours of Landlord's supervisory personnel overseeing the After Hours Work. Landlord shall notify Tenant of the after hours hourly rates (which shall be normal and customary) for such supervisory personnel from time to time upon written request. (d) TENANT'S PLANS. In connection with the performance of Tenant's Work, Tenant shall submit to Landlord for Landlord's reasonable approval an initial set of plans ("Initial Plans"), progress plans from time to time ("Interim Plans") and a full set of construction drawings ("Final Plans") for Tenant's Work (collectively "the Plans"). The Final Plans shall contain at least the information required by, and shall conform to the requirements of, Exhibit 3. Landlord's approval of the Initial Plans and the Interim Plans (and the Final Plans, provided that the Final Plans are consistent with the Initial Plans and the Interim Plans and contain at least the information required by, and conform to the requirements of, said Exhibit 3), shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed and shall comply with the requirements to avoid aesthetic or other conflicts with the design and function of the balance of the Building. Landlord's approval is solely given for the benefit of Landlord under this Article 4.2 and neither Tenant nor any third party shall have the right to rely upon Landlord's approval of Tenant's Plans for any other purpose whatsoever. Without limiting the foregoing, Tenant shall be responsible for all elements of the design of Tenant's plans (including, without limitation, compliance with law, functionality of design, the structural integrity of the design, the configuration of the Premises and the placement of Tenant's furniture, appliances and equipment), and Landlord's approval of Tenant's Plans shall in no event relieve Tenant of the responsibility for such design. (e) TIME PERIODS FOR LANDLORD'S RESPONSE TO TENANT'S PLANS. Landlord agrees to respond to any Initial Plans within ten (10) days of receipt thereof and to Interim Plans and the Final Plans within fifteen (15) days of receipt thereof. If Landlord has not responded to any submission of Tenant's Plans within the ten (10) or fifteen (15) day, as applicable, time period set forth above, then Tenant may send Landlord a notice of such failure to respond, which notice ("Second Notice") shall contain the following language in bold face and all capital letters: "SECOND NOTICE. FAILURE TO RESPOND TO THIS NOTICE WITHIN FIVE (5) -12- 21 DAYS SHALL CONSTITUTE A LANDLORD DELAY UNDER THE LEASE, WHICH MAY ENTITLE TENANT TO A RENT ABATEMENT." If Landlord does not respond to the submission of Tenant's Plans within five (5) days after receipt of the Second Notice, then each additional day after five (5) days before Landlord responds to such submission shall constitute a Landlord Delay. (f) TENANT'S HOIST. Subject to Landlord's prior written approval of Tenant's plans and specifications therefor (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed), Tenant shall have the right, during the performance of Tenant's Work, to install a hoist at the Building in order to enable Tenant's contractor to perform Tenant's Work. Tenant shall maintain such hoist in good condition and in a manner which does not interfere with the performance of Landlord's Work. The initial location of such hoist shall be as reasonably approved by Tenant, recognizing the priority given to Landlord's Work in Article 4.2(c) hereof. Once such hoist is installed, Tenant shall not be required to relocate such hoist, except that Tenant shall remove such hoist from the Building at the time that Landlord makes available to Tenant an elevator for Tenant's exclusive use. Tenant shall repair any damage to the Building caused by the installation or removal of such hoist. (g) GAS LINE.

All of Tenant's Work shall be coordinated with any work being performed by, or for, Landlord, and in such manner as to maintain harmonious labor relations. Each party authorizes the other to rely in connection with design and construction upon the written approval or other written authorizations on the party's behalf by any Construction Representative of the party designated by the party. Each party's initial Construction Representative is designated on Exhibit 1. 5. USE OF PREMISES 5.1 PERMITTED USE. Tenant shall continuously during the term hereof occupy and use the Premises only for the purposes as stated in Exhibit 1 and for no other purposes. Service and utility areas (whether or not a part of the Premises) shall be used only for the particular purpose for which they were designed. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant agrees that it shall not use the Premises or any part thereof, or permit the Premises or any part thereof to be used for the preparation or dispensing of food, whether by vending machines or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to the other terms and provisions of this Lease, Tenant may, with Landlord's prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, install at its own cost and expense so-called hot-cold water fountains, coffee makers and refrigerator-sink-stove combinations for the preparation of beverages and foods, provided that no cooking, frying, etc., are carried on in the Premises to such extent as -13- 22 requires special exhaust venting, Tenant hereby acknowledging that the Building is not engineered to provide any such special venting. Landlord hereby agrees that any equipment shown on Tenant's final approved plans and equivalent equipment in substitution of such equipment shall not, if maintained in good operating order, be deemed to violate the provisions of this Article 5.1. 5.2 PROHIBITED USES. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease, Tenant shall not use, or suffer or permit the use or occupancy of, or suffer or permit anything to be done in or anything to be brought into or kept in or about the Premises or the Building or any part thereof (including, without limitation, any materials appliances or equipment used in the construction or other preparation of the Premises and furniture and carpeting): (i) which would violate any of the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease or otherwise applicable to or binding upon the Premises; (ii) for any unlawful purposes or in any unlawful manner; (iii) which, in the reasonable judgment of Landlord shall in any way (a) impair the appearance or reputation of the Building; or (b) impair, interfere with or otherwise diminish the quality of any of the Building services or the proper and economic heating, cleaning, ventilating, air conditioning or other servicing of the Building; or Premises, or with the use or occupancy of any of the other areas of the Building, or occasion discomfort, inconvenience or annoyance, or injury or damage to any occupants of the Premises or other tenants or occupants of the Building; or (iv) which is inconsistent with the maintenance of the Building as an office building of the first class in the quality of its maintenance, use, or occupancy. Tenant shall not install or use any electrical or other equipment of any kind which, in the reasonable judgment of Landlord, might cause any such impairment, interference, discomfort, inconvenience, annoyance or injury. 5.3 LICENSES AND PERMITS. If any governmental license or permit shall be required for the proper and lawful conduct of Tenant's business, and if the failure to secure such license or permit would in any way affect Landlord, the Premises, the Building or Tenant's ability to perform any of its obligations under this Lease, Tenant, at Tenant's expense, shall duly procure and thereafter maintain such license and submit the same to inspection by Landlord. Tenant, at Tenant's expense, shall at all times comply with the terms and conditions of each such license or permit. Tenant shall furnish all data and information to governmental authorities and Landlord as required in accordance with legal, regulatory, licensing or other similar requirements as they relate to Tenant's use or occupancy of the Premises or the Building. 6. RENT AND SPECIAL ALLOWANCE 6.1. RENT. (a) During the term of this Lease the Yearly Rent and other charges, at the rate stated in Exhibit 1, shall be payable by Tenant to Landlord by monthly payments, as stated in Exhibit 1, in advance and without demand on the first day of each month for and in respect of such month. The rent and other charges reserved and covenanted to be paid under this Lease in respect of the Premises shall commence on the Rent Commencement Date. If, by reason of any provisions of this Lease, the rent reserved hereunder shall commence or terminate on any day other than the first day of a calendar month, the rent for such calendar month shall be prorated. The rent shall be payable to Landlord or, if Landlord shall so direct in writing, to Landlord's agent or nominee, in lawful money of the United States which shall be legal tender for payment of all debts and dues, public and private, at the time of payment, at the office of the Landlord or -14- 23 such place as Landlord may designate, and the rent and other charges in all circumstances shall be payable without any setoff or deduction whatsoever. Rental and any other sums due hereunder not paid on or before the date which is five (5) business days after the date due shall bear interest for each month or fraction thereof from the due date until paid computed at the annual rate of three percentage points over the so-called prime rate then currently from time to time charged to its most favored corporate customers by the largest national bank (N.A.) located in the city in which the Building is located ("National Bank"), or at any applicable lesser maximum legally permissible rate for debts of this nature. In lieu of requiring Tenant to pay monthly installments of Yearly Rent and other fixed monthly charges in the manner described above, Tenant shall have the right to pay such amounts by means of an automated debit system (the "Automatic Debit System") whereby any or all such payments shall be debited from Tenant's account in a bank or financial institution designated by Tenant and credited to Landlord's account in a bank or financial institution designated by Landlord. In the event Tenant elects to pay monthly installments of Yearly Rent and other fixed monthly charges by means of the Automatic Debit System, Tenant, within thirty (30) days after written request by Landlord, shall execute and deliver to Landlord any authorizations, certificates or other documentation as may be required to establish and give effect to the Automatic Debit System. Either party shall have the right to change its bank or financial institution from time to time, provided that Tenant, no less than thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of any such change, shall provide Landlord with written notice of such change and any and all authorizations, certificates or other documentation as may be required to establish and give effect to the Automatic Debit System at Tenant's new bank or financial institution if Tenant elects to continue to use such Automatic Debit System. Tenant shall promptly pay all service fees and other charges imposed upon Tenant in connection with the Automatic Debit System, and Tenant shall promptly reimburse Landlord for any charges resulting from insufficient funds in Tenant's bank account (provided however, that Tenant shall have the right to discontinue the use of the Automatic Debit System at any time upon at least thirty (30) days' prior written notice to Landlord). In the event that any Yearly Rent or other fixed monthly charges are not paid on time as a result of insufficient funds in Tenant's account, Tenant shall be liable for any interest in accordance with this Article. Tenant shall remain liable to Landlord for all payments of Rent due hereunder regardless of whether Tenant's account is incorrectly debited in any given month, it being agreed that a debit of less than the full amount due shall not be construed as a waiver by Landlord of its right to receive any unpaid balance. (b) Rentable Area. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge the Total Rentable Area of the Premises, the Building and of the other buildings initially in the Complex have been determined by agreement, and that the figures set forth in Exhibit 1 shall be conclusive and binding on Landlord and Tenant with regard to the Complex. In the event that Landlord alters any of the buildings in, or adds other buildings to, the Complex, the Total Rentable Area of any such buildings shall be included in the Total Rentable Area of the Complex when first occupied. 6.2 LANDLORD'S CONTRIBUTION. (a) As an inducement to Tenant's entering into this Lease, Landlord shall provide to Tenant a special allowance equal to up to Thirty and 00/100 Dollars ($30.00) per square foot of Rentable Floor Area of the Premises initially demised to Tenant (i.e. Three Million Four Hundred Nine Thousand Three Hundred Eighty and 00/100 Dollars ($3,409,380.00)) ("Landlord's Contribution") to be used by Tenant to pay for the cost of the Tenant's Work. For -15- 24 the purposes hereof, the cost to be so reimbursed by Landlord shall include the cost of leasehold improvements but not the cost of any of Tenant's personal property, trade fixtures or trade equipment or any so-called soft costs. Furthermore, in the event that Tenant does not build out all of the Premises, Landlord's Contribution shall be limited to a maximum of Thirty and 00/100 Dollars ($30.00) per square foot of Rentable Floor Area of the Premises actually built out by Tenant (the "Finished Area"). (b) Landlord shall pay Landlord's Proportion (as hereinafter defined) of the cost shown on each requisition (as hereinafter defined) submitted by Tenant to Landlord within twenty (20) days of submission thereof by Tenant to Landlord until the entirety of Landlord's Contribution has been exhausted. For purposes hereof, "Landlord's Proportion" shall be a fraction, the numerator of which is Landlord's Contribution and the denominator of which is the total contract price for Tenant's Work, and a "requisition" shall mean written documentation (including, without limitation, invoices from Tenant's contractors, vendors, service providers and consultants, lien waivers, and such other documentation as Landlord or Landlord's mortgagee may reasonably request) showing in reasonable detail the costs of the item in question or of the improvements installed to date in the Premises, accompanied by certifications from Tenant that the amount of the requisition in question does not exceed the cost of the items, services and work covered by such requisition. Each requisition shall be accompanied by evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord that items, services and work covered by such requisition has been fully paid by Tenant and that the work has been performed. Landlord shall have the right, upon reasonable advance notice to Tenant, to inspect Tenant's books and records relating to each requisition in order to verify the amount thereof. Tenant shall submit requisition(s) no more often than monthly. (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained: (i) Landlord shall have no obligation to advance funds on account of Landlord's Contribution unless and until Landlord has received the requisition in question. (ii) Except with respect to work and/or materials previously paid for by Tenant, as evidenced by paid invoices and written lien waivers provided to Landlord, Landlord shall have the right to have Landlord's Contribution paid to directly to Tenant's contractor(s), consultants, service providers, and vendor(s). In no event shall Landlord's Contribution be applied to any fees paid to Tenant or any affiliate of Tenant. (iii) Landlord shall have no obligation to pay any portion of Landlord's Contribution in respect of any requisition submitted after the date ("Outside Requisition Date") which is the earlier of: (a) three (3) months after the completion of Tenant's Work, or (b) twenty-one (21) months after the Full Rent Commencement Date (provided, however, that if Tenant certifies to Landlord that it is engaged in a good faith dispute with its contractor, such Outside Requisition Date shall be extended while such dispute is ongoing, so long as Tenant is diligently prosecuting the resolution of such dispute). Tenant shall not be entitled to receive any portion of Landlord's Contribution except to the extent -16- 25 that it has submitted requisitions and/or made demand therefor, on or before the Outside Requisition Date. (iv) Tenant shall not be entitled to any unused portion of Landlord's Contribution. (v) Landlord's obligation to pay any portion of Landlord's Contribution shall be conditioned upon there existing no default beyond the expiration of any applicable grace periods by Tenant in its obligations under the Lease at the time that Landlord would otherwise be required to make such payment. 7. RENTABLE AREA Total Rentable Area of the Premises, the Building and the Complex have, as of the Execution Date, been agreed to be the amounts set forth on Exhibit 1. 8. SERVICES FURNISHED BY LANDLORD 8.1 ELECTRIC CURRENT. (a) As stated in Exhibit 1, Landlord will require Tenant to contract directly with the company supplying electric current for the purchase and obtaining by Tenant of electric current directly from such company to be billed directly to, and paid for by, Tenant. Tenant shall have the right to choose among companies supplying electric current to the Premises if there is more than one such company available. Tenant acknowledges that such electric current purchased directly by Tenant shall include the current used to operate the HVAC equipment serving the Premises. (b) Landlord shall (i) permit its risers, conduits and feeders to the extent available, suitable and safely capable, to be used for the purpose of enabling Tenant to purchase and obtain electric current directly from such company, (ii) without cost or charge to Tenant, make such alterations and additions to the electrical equipment and/or appliances in the Building as such company shall specify for the purpose of enabling Tenant to purchase and obtain electric current directly from such company, and (iii) at Landlord's expense, furnish and install in or near the Premises any necessary metering equipment used in connection with measuring Tenant's consumption of electric current and Tenant, at Tenant's expense, shall maintain and keep in repair such metering equipment. (c) If Tenant shall require electric current for use in the Premises in excess of the capacity available at the commencement of the term of this Lease and if (i) in Landlord's reasonable judgment, Landlord's facilities are inadequate for such excess requirements or (ii) such excess use shall result in an additional burden on the Building air conditioning system and additional cost to Landlord on account thereof then, as the case may be, (x) Landlord upon written request and at the sole cost and expense of Tenant, will furnish and install such additional wire, conduits, feeders, switchboards and appurtenances as reasonably may be required to supply such additional requirements of Tenant if current therefor be available to Landlord, provided that the same shall be permitted by applicable laws and insurance regulations and shall not cause damage to the Building or the Premises or cause or create a dangerous or hazardous condition or -17- 26 entail excessive or unreasonable alterations or repairs or interfere with or disturb other tenants or occupants of the Building or (y) Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for such additional cost, as aforesaid. (e) Landlord, at Tenant's expense and upon Tenant's request, shall purchase and install all replacement lamps of types generally commercially available (including, but not limited to, incandescent and fluorescent) used in the Premises. (f) Subject to Article 8.8(b), Landlord shall not in any way be liable or responsible to Tenant for any loss, damage or expense which Tenant may sustain or incur if the quantity, character, or supply of electrical energy is changed or is no longer available or suitable for Tenant's requirements. (g) Tenant agrees that it will not make any material alteration or material addition to the electrical equipment and/or appliances in the Premises without the prior written consent of Landlord in each instance first obtained, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, and will promptly advise Landlord of any other alteration or addition to such electrical equipment and/or appliances. 8.2 WATER. Landlord shall furnish hot and cold water for ordinary premises cleaning, toilet, lavatory and drinking purposes. If Tenant requires, uses or consumes water for any purpose other than for the aforementioned purposes, Landlord may (i) assess a reasonable charge for the additional water so used or consumed by Tenant or (ii) install a water meter and thereby measure Tenant's water consumption for all purposes. In the latter event, Landlord shall pay the cost of the meter and the cost of installation thereof and shall keep said meter and installation equipment in good working order and repair. Tenant agrees to pay for water consumed, as shown on said meter, together with the sewer charge based on said meter charges, as and when bills are rendered, and on default in making such payment Landlord may pay such charges and collect the same from Tenant, but only to the extent that the charges shown on the meter exceed the consumption reasonably expected for ordinary premises cleaning, toilet, lavatory and drinking purposes. All piping and other equipment and facilities for use of water outside the building core will be installed and maintained by Landlord at Tenant's sole cost and expense. 8.3 ELEVATORS, HEAT, CLEANING. (a) Landlord at its expense shall: (i) provide necessary elevator facilities (which may be manually or automatically operated, either or both, as Landlord may from time to time elect) on Mondays through Fridays, excepting legal holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Saturdays, excepting legal holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (called "business days") and have one elevator in operation available for Tenant's use, non-exclusively, together with others having business in the Building, at all other times; (ii) furnish heat (substantially equivalent to that being furnished in comparably aged similarly equipped office buildings in the same city) to the Premises during the normal heating season on business days; and (iii) cause the office areas and the network operations center of the Premises to be cleaned on business days (except on Saturdays) provided the same are kept in order by Tenant. Either Exhibit 4 (if annexed hereto) or, otherwise, the cleaning standards generally prevailing in first-class office buildings in the city or town where the Building is located, shall represent substantially the extent and scope of the cleaning by Landlord referred to in this Article 8.3. -18- 27 (b) The parties agree and acknowledge that, despite reasonable precautions in selecting cleaning and maintenance contractors and personnel, any property or equipment in the Premises of a delicate, fragile or vulnerable nature may nevertheless be damaged in the course of cleaning and maintenance services being performed. Accordingly, Tenant shall take reasonable protective precautions with such property and equipment (including, without limitation, computers or other data processing components or equipment and optical or electronic equipment, etc.), e.g., housing the property and equipment in a separate, locked room, so as to render it inaccessible to the Building's cleaning personnel. 8.4 AIR CONDITIONING. Landlord shall through the air conditioning equipment of the Building furnish to and distribute in the Premises air conditioning as normal seasonal changes may require on business days during the hours as aforesaid in Article 8.3 when air conditioning may reasonably be required for the comfortable occupancy of the Premises by Tenant. Tenant agrees to use reasonable efforts to lower and close the blinds or drapes when necessary because of the sun's position, whenever the air conditioning system is in operation, and to cooperate fully with Landlord with regard to, and to abide by all the reasonable regulations and requirements which Landlord may prescribe for the proper functioning and protection of the air conditioning system. The air conditioning system referred to in this Article 8.4 shall be capable of maintaining the following: the air conditioning system referred to in this Article 8.4 shall be capable of providing 75(Degree)F dry bulb and 55% of relative humidity with outside conditions of 91(Degree)F dry bulb and 73(Degree)F wet bulb. 8.5 ADDITIONAL HEAT, CLEANING AND AIR CONDITIONING SERVICES. (a) Landlord will use reasonable efforts upon reasonable advance written notice from Tenant of its requirements in that regard, to furnish additional heat, cleaning or air conditioning services to the Premises on days and at times other than as above provided. (b) There shall be no charge for additional heat or air conditioning, as Tenant pays the cost of electricity therefor directly pursuant to Article 8.1. Tenant will pay to Landlord a reasonable charge (i) for any such additional cleaning service required by Tenant, (ii) for any extra cleaning of the Premises required because of the carelessness or indifference of Tenant or because of the nature of Tenant's business, and (iii) for any cleaning done at the request of Tenant of any portions of the Premises which may be used for storage, shipping room or other non-office purposes. If the cost to Landlord for cleaning the Premises shall be increased due to the installation in the Premises, at Tenant's request, of any materials or finish other than those which are building standard, Tenant shall pay to Landlord an amount equal to such increase in cost. 8.6 ADDITIONAL AIR CONDITIONING EQUIPMENT. In the event Tenant requires additional air conditioning for business machines, meeting rooms or other special purposes, or because of occupancy or excess electrical loads, any additional air conditioning units, chillers, condensers, compressors, ducts, piping and other equipment, such additional air conditioning equipment will be installed and maintained by Landlord at Tenant's sole cost and expense, but only if, in Landlord's reasonable judgment, the same will not cause damage or injury to the Building or create a dangerous or hazardous condition or entail excessive or unreasonable alterations, repairs or expense or interfere with or disturb other tenants; and Tenant shall -19- 28 reimburse Landlord in such an amount as will compensate it for the cost incurred by it in operating such additional air conditioning equipment. 8.7 REPAIRS. Except as otherwise provided in Articles 18 and 20, and subject to Tenant's obligations in Article 14, Landlord shall keep and maintain the roof, exterior walls, structural floor slabs, columns, elevators, public stairways and corridors, lavatories, equipment (including, without limitation, sanitary, electrical, heating, air conditioning, or other systems) and other common facilities of the Building in good condition and repair. 8.8 INTERRUPTION OR CURTAILMENT OF SERVICES. (a) When necessary by reason of accident or emergency, or for repairs, alterations, replacements or improvements which in the reasonable judgment of Landlord are desirable or necessary to be made, or of difficulty or inability in securing supplies or labor, or of strikes, or of any other cause beyond the reasonable control of Landlord, whether such other cause be similar or dissimilar to those hereinabove specifically mentioned until said cause has been removed, Landlord reserves the right to interrupt, curtail, stop or suspend (i) the furnishing of heating, elevator, air conditioning, and cleaning services and (ii) the operation of the plumbing and electric systems. Landlord shall exercise reasonable diligence to eliminate the cause of any such interruption, curtailment, stoppage or suspension, but there shall be no diminution or abatement of rent or other compensation due from Landlord to Tenant hereunder, nor shall this Lease be affected or any of the Tenant's obligations hereunder reduced, and the Landlord shall have no responsibility or liability for any such interruption, curtailment, stoppage, or suspension of services or systems. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease contained, if the Premises shall lack any service which Landlord is required to provide hereunder, or if Tenant's use and occupancy of the Premises shall be disturbed in violation of Article 10 hereof (thereby rendering the Premises or a portion thereof substantially untenantable) so that, for the Landlord Service Interruption Cure Period, as hereinafter defined, the continued operation in the ordinary course of Tenant's business is materially adversely affected and if Tenant ceases to use the affected portion of the Premises during the period of untenantability as the direct result of such lack of service or disturbance, then, provided that Tenant ceases to use the affected portion of the Premises during the entirety of the Landlord Service Interruption Cure Period and that such untenantability and Landlord's inability to cure such condition is not caused by the fault or neglect of Tenant or Tenant's agents, employees or contractors, Yearly Rent, Operating Expense Excess and Tax Excess shall thereafter be abated in proportion to such untenantability until the day such condition is completely corrected. For the purposes hereof, the "Landlord Service Interruption Cure Period" shall be defined as five (5) consecutive business days after Landlord's receipt of written notice from Tenant of the condition causing untenantability in the Premises, provided however, that the Landlord Service Interruption Cure Period shall be ten (10) consecutive business days after Landlord's receipt of written notice from Tenant of such condition causing untenantability in the Premises if either the condition was caused by causes beyond Landlord's control or Landlord is unable to cure such condition as the result of causes beyond Landlord's control. (c) The provisions of Paragraph (b) of this Article 8.8 shall not apply in the event of untenantability caused by fire or other casualty, or taking (see Articles 18 and 20). -20- 29 8.9 ENERGY CONSERVATION. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article 8 or in this Lease contained, Landlord may institute, and Tenant shall comply with, such policies, programs and measures as may be necessary, required, or expedient for the conservation and/or preservation of energy or energy services, provided however, that Landlord does not, by reason of such policies, programs and measures, reduce the level of energy or energy services being provided to the premises below the level of energy or energy services then being provided in comparably aged, first-class office buildings in the greater Boston area, or as may be necessary or required to comply with applicable codes, rules regulations or standards. 8.10 MISCELLANEOUS. Other than air conditioning, all services provided by Landlord to Tenant are based upon an assumed maximum Premises population of one person per one hundred fifty (150) square feet of Total Rentable Area. Tenant acknowledges that if it exceeds the foregoing limitation, Landlord may incur costs including, without limitation, additional costs due to the additional load on building systems. Tenant agrees to reimburse Landlord for the amount of such costs (if any), as reasonably determined by Landlord, due to a Premises population in excess of the foregoing maximum. 9.

(g5) Capital Expenditures. (i) REPLACEMENTS. If, during the term of this Lease, Landlord shall replace any capital items or make any capital expenditures -26- 35 (collectively called "Capital Expenditures") the total amount of which is not properly includable in Operating Costs for the Operating Year in which they were made, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and practices in effect at the time of such replacement, there shall nevertheless be included in such Operating Costs and in Operating Costs for each succeeding Operating Year the amount, if any, by which the Annual Charge-Off (determined as hereinafter provided) of such Capital Expenditure (less insurance proceeds, if any, collected by Landlord by reason of damage to, or destruction of the capital item being replaced) exceeds the Annual Charge-Off of the Capital Expenditure for the item being replaced. (ii) NEW CAPITAL ITEMS. If a new capital item is acquired which does not replace another capital item which was worn out, has become obsolete, etc., and such new capital item being acquired is either (i) required by law or (ii) reasonably projected to reduce Operating Costs, then there shall be included in Operating Costs for each Operating Year in which and after such capital expenditure is made the Annual Charge-Off of such capital expenditure. (iii) ANNUAL CHARGE-OFF. "Annual Charge-Off" shall be defined as the annual amount of principal and interest payments which would be required to repay a loan ("Capital Loan") in equal monthly installments over the Useful Life, as hereinafter defined, of the capital item in question on a direct reduction basis at an annual interest rate equal to the Capital Interest Rate, as hereinafter defined, where the initial principal balance is the cost of the capital item in question. (iv) USEFUL LIFE. "Useful Life" shall be reasonably determined by Landlord in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and practices in effect at the time of acquisition of the capital item. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord reasonably concludes on the basis of engineering estimates that a particular capital expenditure will effect savings in Complex operating expenses including, without limitation, energy-related costs, and that such annual projected savings will exceed the Annual Charge-Off of Capital Expenditures computed as aforesaid, then and in such events, the Annual Charge-Off shall be determined based upon a Useful Life which would cause the principal and interest payments in a full repayment of the Capital Loan in question to equal the amount of projected savings of such Useful Life. (v) CAPITAL INTEREST RATE. "Capital Interest Rate" shall be defined as an annual rate of either one percentage point over the AA Bond rate (Standard & Poor's corporate composite or, if unavailable, its equivalent) as reported in the financial press at the time the capital expenditure is made or, if the capital item is acquired through third-party financing, then the actual (including fluctuating) rate paid by Landlord in financing the acquisition of such capital item. (g6) Specifically Included Categories of Operating Costs. Subject to the Excluded Costs definition, the qualifications on reimbursable Building Operating Costs and Complex Operating Costs set forth in Articles 9.1(g1) 9.1(g2) and 9.1(g3), and -27- 36 except as otherwise expressly excluded from the definition of Building Operating Costs and Complex Operating Costs pursuant to the provisions of this Lease, Building Operating Costs and Complex Operating Costs shall include, but not be limited to, the following, provided that if such costs are attributable to the Building and to other buildings in the Complex, then such costs shall be equitably apportioned among the Building and such other buildings in accordance with Article 9.1(g3), and if such costs are attributable to common areas of the Complex and to other property which is not part of the Complex, then such costs shall be equitably apportioned among the Complex and such other property. TAXES (other than Real Estate Taxes): Sales taxes and Federal Social Security, Unemployment and Old Age Taxes and contributions and State Unemployment taxes and contributions accruing to and paid by the Landlord on account of all employees of Landlord and/or Landlord's managing agent, who are employed in, about or on account of the Premises (to the extent that the underlying wages or salaries are included in Building Operating Costs or Complex Operating Costs, as the case may be), except that taxes levied upon the net income of the Landlord and taxes withheld from employees, and "Taxes" as defined in Article 9.1(d) shall not be included herein. WATER: All charges and rates connected with water supplied to the Premises, the Building and/or the common areas of the Complex and related sewer use charges. HEAT AND AIR CONDITIONING: The cost of electricity connected with heat and air conditioning supplied to the common areas of the Building and/or Complex, and all other charges connected with heat and air conditioning supplied to the Premises, Building and/or Complex. WAGES: Wages and cost of all employee benefits of all employees of the Landlord and/or Landlord's managing agent who are employed in, about or on account of the Premises and/or Complex provided that wages and costs for employees who also work on other properties shall be allocated to the Complex based upon the proportion of their time spent working on the Complex and then allocated to the Premises on a square foot basis. CLEANING: The cost of labor and material for cleaning the Premises and/or Complex, surrounding areaways and windows in the Premises and/or Complex, including, without limitation, the services listed on Exhibit 4. ELEVATOR MAINTENANCE: All expenses for or on account of the upkeep and maintenance of all elevators in the Premises, Building and/or the Complex (if any). ELECTRICITY: The cost of all electric current for the operation of any machine, appliance or device used for the operation of the Premises and the Building and/or Complex, including the cost of electric current for the elevators, lights, air conditioning and heating, but not including electric current which is paid for directly to the utility by the user/tenant in the Premises and/or Complex. (If and so long as Tenant is billed directly by the electric utility for its own consumption of electricity for lights and plugs as determined by its separate meter or by submeter, then Operating Costs shall include only public area electric current consumption and electricity for base building HVAC and not any demised Premises electric current consumption for lights and plugs.) Wherever -28- 37 separate metering is unlawful, prohibited by utility company regulation or tariff or is otherwise impracticable, relevant consumption figures for the purposes of this Article 9 shall be determined by fair and reasonable allocations and engineering estimates made by Landlord. INSURANCE, ETC.: Fire, casualty, liability and such other insurance as may from time to time be reasonably required by lending institutions on first-class office buildings in the City or Town wherein the Building is located and all other expenses customarily incurred in connection with the operation and maintenance of first-class suburban office/research and development buildings in the Market Area. MANAGEMENT SPACE: Market rate rental costs associated with the Complex's management office. COMPLEX AMENITIES: The cost of operating any amenities in the Complex available to all tenants of the Complex including, without limitation, any cafeteria. The costs to be included in Complex Operating Costs shall include any subsidy, including lower than market rate rent, provided by Landlord for or with respect to such amenity. In the event that the costs of a Complex amenity are included in an Operating Year but such costs were not included in the Complex Operating Costs Base, then the Complex Operating Costs Base shall be adjusted to reflect what would have been the costs for such amenity in the Complex Operating Costs Base if such amenity had been operated during calendar year 2000. 9.2 TAX EXCESS. (a) IN GENERAL. Commencing as of the Rent Commencement Date (or, if there is more than one Rent Commencement Date hereunder, the first such date), and continuing thereafter throughout the term of this Lease, if with respect to any Tax Period, the sum ("Tenant's Tax Share") of (i) Tenant's Building Tax Percentage of Building Taxes plus (ii) Tenant's Complex Tax Percentage of Land Taxes exceeds the Tax Base, Tenant shall, subject to Article 9.10, pay such excess to Landlord, such amount being hereinafter referred to as "Tax Excess." Tax Excess shall be due within thirty (30) days of Tenant's receipt of Landlord's bill therefor. In implementation and not in limitation of the foregoing, Tenant shall remit to Landlord pro rata monthly installments on account of projected Tax Excess, calculated by Landlord on the basis of the most recent Tax data available. If the total of such monthly remittances on account of any Tax Period is greater than the actual Tax Excess for such Tax Period, Tenant may credit the difference against the next installment of rental or other charges due to Landlord hereunder, except that if such difference is determined after the end of the term of this Lease, Landlord shall refund such difference to Tenant within thirty (30) days after such determination to the extent that such difference exceeds any amounts then due from Tenant to Landlord. If the total of such remittances is less than the actual Tax Excess for such Tax Period, Tenant shall pay the difference to Landlord within thirty (30) days of Tenant's receipt of the bill. (b) EFFECT OF ABATEMENTS. Appropriate credit against Tax Excess shall be given for any refund obtained by reason of a reduction in any Taxes by the Assessors or the administrative, judicial or other governmental agency responsible therefor. The original computations, as well as reimbursement or payments of additional charges, if any, or allowances, if any, under the provisions of this Article 9.2 shall be based on the original assessed valuations -29- 38 with adjustments to be made at a later date when the tax refund, if any, shall be paid to Landlord by the taxing authorities. Expenditures for reasonable legal fees and for other reasonable similar or dissimilar expenses incurred in obtaining the tax refund may be charged against the tax refund before the adjustments are made for the Tax Period. 9.3 OPERATING EXPENSE EXCESS. Commencing as of the Rent Commencement Date (or, if there is more than one Rent Commencement Date hereunder, the first such date), and continuing thereafter throughout the term of the Lease, if with respect to any Operating Year, the Building Operating Costs exceed the Operating Cost Base, Tenant shall, subject to Article 9.10, pay Tenant's Building Operating Cost Percentage of such excess to Landlord, such amount being hereinafter referred to as "Operating Expense Excess." Operating Expense Excess shall be due within thirty (30) days of the Tenant's receipt of the Landlord's bill therefor. In implementation and not in limitation of the foregoing, Tenant shall remit to Landlord pro rata monthly installments on account of projected Operating Expense Excess, calculated by Landlord on the basis of the most recent Operating Costs data or budget available. Landlord shall, within one hundred twenty (120) days after the end of each Operating Year, deliver to Tenant a reasonably detailed statement ("Year End Statement") of the actual amount of Operating Costs for such Operating Year. If the total of such monthly remittances on account of any Operating Year is greater than the actual Operating Expense Excess for such Operating Year, Tenant may credit the difference against the next installment of rent or other charges due to Landlord hereunder, except that if such difference is determined after the end of the term of this Lease, Landlord shall refund such difference to Tenant within thirty (30) days after such determination to the extent that such difference exceeds any amounts then due from Tenant to Landlord. If the total of such remittances is less than actual Operating Expense Excess for such Operating Year, Tenant shall pay the difference to Landlord within thirty (30) days of Tenant's receipt of Landlord's bill therefor. 9.4 PART YEARS. If any Rent Commencement Date or if the Termination Date occurs in the middle of an Operating Year or Tax Period, Tenant shall be liable for only that portion of the Operating Expense or Tax Excess, as the case may be, in respect of such Operating Year or Tax Period represented by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days of the herein term (commencing as of the applicable Rent Commencement Date) which falls within the Operating Year or Tax Period and the denominator of which is three hundred sixty-five (365), or the number of days in said Tax Period, as the case may be. Any credit pursuant to Article 9.10 for the years in which any Rent Commencement Date or the Termination Date occur shall be similarly pro-rated. 9.5 EFFECT OF TAKING. In the event of any taking of a portion of the Complex, the Building or the land upon which it stands under circumstances whereby this Lease shall not terminate under the provisions of Article 20 then, for the purposes of determining Tax Excess, there shall be substituted for the Tax Base originally provided for herein a fraction of such Tax Base, the numerator of which fraction shall be the Taxes for the first Tax Period subsequent to the condemnation or taking which takes into account such condemnation or taking, and the denominator of which shall be the Taxes for the last Tax Period prior to the condemnation or taking, which did not take into account such condemnation or taking. Tenant's Building Tax Percentage shall be adjusted appropriately to reflect the proportion of the Premises and the Building remaining after such taking. -30- 39 9.6 ADJUSTMENT OF OPERATING COSTS BASED UPON OCCUPANCY. If less than ninety-five percent (95%) of the rentable area of the Building shall have been occupied by tenants at any time during any Operating Year (including the Base Year), or if services, for any other reason, are not provided by Landlord to at least ninety-five (95%) percent of the rentable area of the Building, then, at Landlord's election, Building Operating Costs for such Operating Year shall be adjusted to equal the amount which Landlord reasonably determines is the amount Building Operating Costs would have been for such period had occupancy been ninety-five percent (95%) throughout such period, or if such services had been provided to ninety-five (95%) percent of the Building throughout such period, as the case may be. 9.7 EFFECT OF CONVERSION OF COMPLEX TO A CONDOMINIUM. Landlord reserves the right to create a condominium encompassing some or all of the Complex, including the Building. In the event that such a condominium is created, then (i) if the Building shall constitute a separately assessed unit in the condominium, Building Taxes shall thereafter be defined as the amount of Taxes assessed against such unit, and if the Building does not constitute a separately assessed unit, Landlord shall thereafter equitably allocate Taxes to the Building and the Land on a reasonable basis; and (ii) Landlord shall include any condominium fees assessed against the unit containing the premises in Building Operating Costs and Complex Operating Costs, as the case may be, to the extent such fees represent costs which would otherwise be included in Building Operating Costs or Complex Operating Costs. The allocation of any such condominium fees between Building Operating Costs and Complex Operating Costs shall be based on square footage of Total Rentable Area of the premises benefiting from the cost in question, unless Landlord reasonably determines that such allocation should be made on another reasonable basis. 9.8 DISPUTES, ETC. Any disputes arising under this Article 9 may, at the election of either party, be submitted to arbitration as hereinafter provided. Any obligations under this Article 9 which shall not have been paid at the expiration or sooner termination of the term of this Lease shall survive such expiration and shall be paid when and as the amount of same shall be determined and be due. 9.9 TENANT'S AUDIT RIGHTS. Subject to the provisions of this paragraph, Tenant shall have the right, at Tenant's cost and expense, to examine all documentation and calculations prepared in the determination of Operating Expense Excess: 1. Such documentation and calculation shall be made available to Tenant at the offices where Landlord keeps such records during normal business hours within a reasonable time after Landlord receives a written request from Tenant to make such examination. 2. Tenant shall have the right to make such examination no more than once in respect of any period in which Landlord has given Tenant a statement of the actual amount of Operating Costs. 3. Any request for examination in respect of any Operating Year may be made no more than sixty (60) days after Landlord advises Tenant of the actual amount of Operating Costs in respect of such period. 4. Such examination may be made only by a nationally recognized independent certified public accounting firm approved by Landlord, such -31- 40 approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Without limiting Landlord's approval rights, Landlord may withhold its approval of any examiner of Tenant who is being paid by Tenant on a contingent fee basis. 5. As a condition to performing any such examination, Tenant and its examiners shall be required to execute and deliver to Landlord an agreement, in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord, agreeing to keep confidential any information which it discovers about Landlord or the Building or the Complex in connection with such examination. 6. If such audit reveals an overcharge of more than five percent (5%), Landlord shall reimburse Tenant the reasonable cost of such audit within thirty (30) days after written demand therefor. 9.10 CREDIT IF OPERATING COSTS AND TAXES ARE LESS THAN THEIR RESPECTIVE BASES. (a) The provisions of this Article 9.10(a) shall only apply if, with respect to any Operating Year, Tenant is required to pay Operating Expense Excess, but the amount of Tenant's Tax Share for such Operating Year is less than the Tax Base. In such instance, the amount of Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant for such Operating Year shall be reduced by an amount equal to the amount by which the Tax Base exceeds Tenant's Tax Share for such Operating Year. Since, as of the Execution Date, the method for determining Tenant's Tax Share is determined based upon a fiscal Tax Period commencing as of each July 1 and ending as of the following June 30, Tenant's Tax Share for any Operating Year shall, for the purposes of this Article 9.10(a), be determined based upon the pro-rata portion of the actual amount of Taxes payable in respect of each Tax Period which overlaps such Operating Year. Following are three examples of this calculation: EXAMPLE 1 (1) For calendar year 2002, the Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant would be $1,000.00, but for the provisions of this Article 9.10(a), and (2) For fiscal year 2002 (i.e. July 1, 2001-June 30, 2002), the Tenant's Tax Share is $500.00 LESS than the Tax Base, and (3) For fiscal year 2003 (i.e. July 1, 2002-June 30, 2003), the Tenant's Tax Share is $200.00 MORE than the Tax Base, then, (4) The amount of Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant for calendar year 2002 shall be reduced by $150.00 pursuant to this Article 9.10(a) (the reduction amount being equal to 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Tax Share is LESS than the Tax Base for fiscal year 2002 [$250.00] MINUS 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Tax Share for fiscal year 2003 is MORE than the Tax Base [$100.00]). EXAMPLE 2 -32- 41 (1) For calendar year 2002, the Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant would be $1,000.00, but for the provisions of this Article 9.10(a), and (2) For fiscal year 2002 (i.e. July 1, 2001-June 30, 2002), the Tenant's Tax Share is $400.00 LESS than the Tax Base, and (3) For fiscal year 2003 (i.e. July 1, 2002-June 30, 2003), the Tenant's Tax Share is $300.00 LESS than the Tax Base, then, (4) The amount of Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant for calendar year 2002 shall be reduced by $350.00 pursuant to this Article 9.10(a) (the reduction amount being equal to 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Tax Share is LESS than the Tax Base for fiscal year 2002 [$200.00] PLUS 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Tax Share for fiscal year 2003 is LESS than the Tax Base [$150.00]). EXAMPLE 3 (1) For calendar year 2002, the Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant would be $1,000.00, but for the provisions of this Article 9.10(a), and (2) For fiscal year 2002 (i.e. July 1, 2001-June 30, 2002), the Tenant's Tax Share is $300.00 LESS than the Tax Base, and (3) For fiscal year 2003 (i.e. July 1, 2002-June 30, 2003), the Tenant's Tax Share is $600.00 MORE than the Tax Base, then, (4) The amount of Operating Expense Excess payable by Tenant for calendar year 2002 shall not be reduced pursuant to this Article 9.10(a) (the reduction amount being equal to 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Tax Share is LESS than the Tax Base for fiscal year 2002 [$150.00] MINUS 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Tax Share for fiscal year 2003 is MORE than the Tax Base [$300.00], but never less than zero). (b) The provisions of this Article 9.10(b) shall only apply if, with respect to any Tax Period, Tenant is required to pay Tax Excess, but the amount of Tenant's Building Operating Cost Percentage of Building Operating Costs ("Tenant's Operating Share") for such Tax Period is less than the Operating Cost Base. In such event, the amount of Tax Excess payable by Tenant for such Tax Period shall be reduced by an amount equal to the amount by which the Operating Cost Base exceeds Tenant's Operating Share for such Tax Period. Since, as of the Execution Date, the method for determining Tenant's Tax Share is determined based upon a fiscal Tax Period commencing as of each July 1 and ending as of the following June 30, Tenant's Operating Share for any Tax Period shall, for the purposes of this Article 9.10(b), be determined based upon the pro-rata portion of the actual amount of Tenant's Operating Share payable in respect of each Operating Year which overlaps such Tax Period Year. Following are three examples of this calculation: EXAMPLE 1 (1) For fiscal year 2003 (i.e. July 1, 2002-June 30, 2003), the Tax Excess payable by Tenant would be $1,000.00, but for the provisions of this Article 9.10(b), and -33- 42 (2) For calendar year 2002, the Tenant's Operating Share is $500.00 LESS than the Operating Cost Base, and (3) For calendar year 2003, the Tenant's Operating Share is $200.00 MORE than the Operating Cost Base, then, (4) The amount of Tax Excess payable by Tenant for fiscal year 2003 shall be reduced by $150.00 pursuant to this Article 9.10(b) (the reduction amount being equal to 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Operating Share is LESS than the Operating Cost Base for calendar year 2002 [$250.00] MINUS 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Operating Share for calendar year 2003 is MORE than the Operating Cost Base [$100.00]). EXAMPLE 2 (1) For fiscal year 2003 (i.e. July 1, 2002-June 30, 2003), the Tax Excess payable by Tenant would be $1,000.00, but for the provisions of this Article 9.10(b), and (2) For calendar year 2002, the Tenant's Operating Share is $400.00 LESS than the Operating Cost Base, and (3) For calendar year 2003, the Tenant's Operating Share is $300.00 LESS than the Operating Cost Base, then, (4) The amount of Tax Excess payable by Tenant for fiscal year 2003 shall be reduced by $350.00 pursuant to this Article 9.10(b) (the reduction amount being equal to 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Operating Share is LESS than the Operating Cost Base for calendar year 2002 [$200.00] PLUS 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Operating Share for calendar year 2003 is LESS than the Operating Cost Base [$150.00]). EXAMPLE 3 (1) For fiscal year 2003 (i.e. July 1, 2002-June 30, 2003), the Tax Excess payable by Tenant would be $1,000.00, but for the provisions of this Article 9.10(b), and (2) For calendar year 2002, the Tenant's Operating Share is $300.00 LESS than the Operating Cost Base, and (3) For calendar year 2003, the Tenant's Operating Share is $600.00 MORE than the Operating Cost Base, then, (4) The amount of Tax Excess payable by Tenant for fiscal year 2003 shall not be reduced pursuant to this Article 9.10(b) (the reduction amount being equal to 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Operating Share is LESS than the Operating Cost Base for calendar year 2002 [$150.00] MINUS 50% of the amount by which Tenant's Operating Share for calendar year 2003 is MORE than the Operating Cost Base [$300.00], but never less than zero). -34- 43 10. CHANGES OR ALTERATIONS BY LANDLORD Landlord reserves the right, exercisable by itself or its nominee, at any time and from time to time without the same constituting an actual or constructive eviction and without incurring any liability to Tenant therefor or otherwise affecting Tenant's obligations under this Lease, to make such changes, alterations, additions, improvements, repairs or replacements in or to the Building (including the Premises) and the fixtures and equipment thereof, as well as in or to the street entrances, halls, passages, elevators, escalators, and stairways thereof, as it may deem necessary or desirable, and to change the arrangement and/or location of entrances or passageways, doors and doorways, and corridors, elevators, stairs, toilets, or other public parts of the Building, provided, however, that there be no unreasonable obstruction of the right of access to, or unreasonable interference with the use and enjoyment of, the Premises by Tenant. Nothing contained in this Article 10 shall be deemed to relieve Tenant of any duty, obligation or liability of Tenant with respect to making any repair, replacement or improvement or complying with any law, order or requirement of any governmental or other authority. Landlord reserves the right to adopt and at any time and from time to time to change the name or address of the Building. After the initial change of the name and address of the Building, Landlord shall provide to Tenant at least six (6) months' prior written notice of any subsequent change of the name or address of the Building. Neither this Lease nor any use by Tenant shall give Tenant any right or easement for the use of any door or any passage or any concourse connecting with any other building or to any public convenience, and the use of such doors, passages and concourses and of such conveniences may be regulated or discontinued at any time and from time to time by Landlord without notice to Tenant and without affecting the obligation of Tenant hereunder or incurring any liability to Tenant therefor, provided, however, that there be no unreasonable obstruction of the right of access to, or unreasonable interference with the use of the Premises by Tenant. If at any time any windows of the Premises are temporarily closed or darkened for any reason whatsoever including but not limited to, Landlord's own acts, Landlord shall not be liable for any damage Tenant may sustain thereby and Tenant shall not be entitled to any compensation therefor nor abatements of rent nor shall the same release Tenant from its obligations hereunder nor constitute an eviction. Subject to the provisions of Article 8.8(b) hereof, during the performance of demolition or renovation of existing buildings and construction of new buildings by Landlord in the Complex, Landlord, its agents, employees and contractors shall use reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with Tenant's use and occupancy of the Premises. 11. FIXTURES, EQUIPMENT AND IMPROVEMENTS--REMOVAL BY TENANT All fixtures, equipment, improvements and appurtenances attached to or built into the Premises prior to or during the term, whether by Landlord at its expense or at the expense of Tenant (either or both) or by Tenant shall be and remain part of the Premises and shall not be removed by Tenant during or at the end of the term unless Landlord otherwise elects to require Tenant to remove such fixtures, equipment, improvements and appurtenances, in accordance with Articles 12 and/or 22 of the Lease; provided, however, that Tenant shall have the right to remove (at Tenant's expense) the items of Tenant's Removable Property listed on Exhibit 8, attached hereto, provided that such removal shall not materially damage the Premises or the -35- 44 Building and that the cost of repairing any damage to the Premises or the Building arising from installation or such removal shall be paid by Tenant. All electric, plumbing, heating and sprinkling systems, fixtures and outlets, vaults, paneling, molding, shelving, radiator enclosures, cork, rubber, linoleum and composition floors, ventilating, silencing, air conditioning and cooling equipment, shall be deemed to be included in such fixtures, equipment, improvements and appurtenances, whether or not attached to or built into the Premises. Where not built into the Premises, all removable electric fixtures, carpets, drinking or tap water facilities, furniture, or trade fixtures or business equipment or Tenant's inventory or stock in trade shall not be deemed to be included in such fixtures, equipment, improvements and appurtenances and may be, and upon the request of Landlord will be, removed by Tenant upon the condition that such removal shall not materially damage the Premises or the Building and that the cost of repairing any damage to the Premises or the Building arising from installation or such removal shall be paid by Tenant. If this Lease shall be terminated by reason of Tenant's breach or default, then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease contained, Landlord shall have a lien against all Tenant's property in the Premises or elsewhere in the Building at the time of such termination to secure Landlord's rights under Article 21 hereof. Tenant shall, within ten (10) days of Landlord's written request, from time to time, execute and deliver to Landlord such documentation (e.g., UCC statements) as may be necessary to enable Landlord to perfect such lien. 12. ALTERATIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS BY TENANT Tenant shall make no alterations, decorations, installations, removals, additions or improvements in or to the Premises without Landlord's prior written consent and then only those made by contractors or mechanics approved by Landlord. No installations or work shall be undertaken or begun by Tenant until: (i) Landlord has approved written plans and specifications and a time schedule for such work; (ii) Tenant has made provision for either written waivers of liens from all contractors, laborers and suppliers of materials for such installations or work, the filing of lien bonds on behalf of such contractors, laborers and suppliers, or other appropriate protective measures approved by Landlord and reasonably and customarily required by other landlords of first class office buildings in Cambridge, Massachusetts for work of the type being performed; and (iii) where the cost of such work exceeds $300,000.00 in any one instance, Tenant has procured appropriate surety payment and performance bonds. No amendments or additions to such plans and specifications shall be made without the prior written consent of Landlord. Landlord's consent and approval required under this Article 12 shall not be unreasonably withheld. Landlord's approval is solely given for the benefit of Landlord and neither Tenant nor any third party shall have the right to rely upon Landlord's approval of Tenant's plans for any purpose whatsoever. Without limiting the foregoing, Tenant shall be responsible for all elements of the design of Tenant's plans (including, without limitation, compliance with law, functionality of design, the structural integrity of the design, the configuration of the Premises and the placement of Tenant's furniture, appliances and equipment), and Landlord's approval of Tenant's plans shall in no event relieve Tenant of the responsibility for such design. Landlord shall have no liability or responsibility for any claim, injury or damage alleged to have been caused by the particular materials, whether building standard or non-building standard, appliances or equipment selected by Tenant in connection with any work performed by or on behalf of Tenant in the Premises including, without limitation, furniture, carpeting, copiers, laser printers, computers and refrigerators. Any such work, alterations, decorations, installations, removals, additions and improvements shall be done at Tenant's sole expense and at such times and in such manner as Landlord may from time to time -36- 45 designate. If Tenant shall make any alterations, decorations, installations, removals, additions or improvements to the Premises, then Landlord may elect to require the Tenant at the expiration or sooner termination of the term of this Lease to restore the Premises to substantially the same condition as existed at the Full Rent Commencement Date. Landlord agrees to make such election at the time that Landlord approves Tenant's plans for any such alterations, etc., if Tenant requests in writing that Landlord make such election at the time that Tenant requests Landlord's approval of such alterations, etc. Tenant shall have the right, during the term of the Lease, to use the internal stairwells of the Building to provide access for Tenant's employees between the floors of the Premises provided that (i) such use is permitted by applicable law, (ii) Landlord shall, if required by applicable laws, rules, orders and regulations, install a card key access system for the doors to and from such stairwells, and (iii) Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, as additional rent, or shall use a portion of the Landlord Allowance, for the costs incurred by Landlord to install such card key access system. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, Tenant shall have the right, without obtaining Landlord's consent, to make interior nonstructural alterations, additions, or improvements, provided however that Tenant: (i) shall give prior written notice to Landlord of such alterations, additions or improvements; (ii) Tenant shall submit to Landlord plans for such alterations, additions or improvements if Tenant utilizes plans for such alterations, additions or improvements, and (iii) that such alterations, additions or improvements shall not materially, adversely affect any of the Building's systems, or the ceiling of the Premises. 13. TENANT'S CONTRACTORS--MECHANICS' AND OTHER LIENS--STANDARD OF TENANT'S PERFORMANCE--COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS Whenever Tenant shall make any alterations, decorations, installations, removals, additions or improvements in or to the Premises--whether such work be done prior to or after the Term Commencement Date--Tenant will strictly observe the following covenants and agreements: (a) Tenant agrees that it will not, either directly or indirectly, use any contractors and/or materials if their use will create any difficulty, whether in the nature of a labor dispute or otherwise, with other contractors and/or labor engaged by Tenant or Landlord or others in the construction, maintenance and/or operation of the Building or any part thereof. (b) In no event shall any material or equipment be incorporated in or added to the Premises, so as to become a fixture or otherwise a part of the Building, in connection with any such alteration, decoration, installation, addition or improvement which is subject to any lien, charge, mortgage or other encumbrance of any kind whatsoever or is subject to any security interest or any form of title retention agreement. No installations or work shall be undertaken or -37- 46 begun by Tenant until (i) Tenant has made provision for written waiver of liens from all contractors, laborers and suppliers of materials for such installations or work, and taken other appropriate protective measures approved by Landlord; and (ii) Tenant has procured appropriate surety payment and performance bonds which shall name Landlord as an additional obligee and has filed lien bond(s) (in jurisdictions where available) on behalf of such contractors, laborers and suppliers. Any mechanic's lien filed against the Premises or the Building for work claimed to have been done for, or materials claimed to have been furnished to, Tenant shall be discharged by Tenant within ten (10) days thereafter, at Tenant's expense by filing the bond required by law or otherwise. If Tenant fails so to discharge any lien, Landlord may do so at Tenant's expense and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any expense or cost incurred by Landlord in so doing within fifteen (15) days after rendition of a bill therefor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall have the right to grant security interests and/or to lease its business equipment and personal property in the Premises which were not paid for in whole or in part by the Landlord Allowance, provided that such lessor or secured party agrees: 1. That it will repair any damage to the Building or the Premises caused by the installation or removal of any such equipment or personal property; 2. That it will give Landlord not less than five (5) days advance written notice prior to making any entry into the Premises; 3. That it will not hold any auction or foreclosure sale on the Premises; and 4. That it will have the right to remove such equipment or property only during the term of this Lease. (c) All installations or work done by Tenant shall be at its own expense and shall at all times comply with (i) laws, rules, orders and regulations of governmental authorities having jurisdiction thereof; (ii) orders, rules and regulations of any Board of Fire Underwriters, or any other body hereafter constituted exercising similar functions, and governing insurance rating bureaus; (iii) Rules and Regulations of Landlord; and (iv) plans and specifications prepared by and at the expense of Tenant theretofore submitted to and approved by Landlord. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease, Tenant shall not be responsible for compliance with any laws, regulations, or the like requiring (i) structural repairs or modifications or (ii) repairs or modifications to the utility or building service equipment or (iii) installation of new building service equipment, such as fire detection or suppression equipment, unless such repairs, modifications, or installations shall be (a) due to Tenant's particular use or manner of use of the Premises (as opposed to office use generally), (b) due to the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or any agent, employee, or contractor of Tenant, or (c) due to alterations, additions or installations by or on behalf of Tenant. (d) Tenant shall procure all necessary permits before undertaking any work in the Premises; do all of such work in a good and workmanlike manner, employing materials of good quality and complying with all governmental requirements; and defend, save harmless, exonerate and indemnify Landlord from all injury, loss or damage to any person or property occasioned by or growing out of such work. Tenant shall cause contractors employed by Tenant to carry Worker's Compensation Insurance in accordance with statutory requirements, -38- 47 Automobile Liability Insurance and, naming Landlord as an additional insured, Commercial General Liability Insurance covering such contractors on or about the Premises in the amounts stated in Article 15 hereof or in such other reasonable amounts as Landlord shall require and to submit certificates evidencing such coverage to Landlord prior to the commencement of such work. 14. REPAIRS BY TENANT--FLOOR LOAD 14.1 REPAIRS BY TENANT. Tenant shall keep all and singular the Premises neat and clean (including periodic rug shampoo and waxing of tiled floors and cleaning of blinds and drapes) and in such repair, order and condition as the same are in on the Term Commencement Date or may be put in during the term hereof, reasonable use and wearing thereof and damage by fire or by other casualty excepted. Tenant shall be solely responsible for the proper maintenance of all equipment and appliances operated by Tenant, including, without limitation, copiers, laser printers, computers and refrigerators. Tenant shall make, as and when needed as a result of misuse by, or neglect or improper conduct of, Tenant or Tenant's servants, employees, agents, contractors, invitees, or licensees or otherwise, all repairs in and about the Premises necessary to preserve them in such repair, order and condition, which repairs shall be in quality and class equal to the original work. Landlord may elect, at the expense of Tenant, to make any such repairs or to repair any damage or injury to the Building or the Premises caused by moving property of Tenant in or out of the Building, or by installation or removal of furniture or other property, or by misuse by, or neglect, or improper conduct of, Tenant or Tenant's servants, employees, agents, contractors, or licensees. 14.2 FLOOR LOAD--HEAVY MACHINERY. Tenant shall not place a load upon any floor of the Premises exceeding the floor load per square foot of area which such floor was designed to carry and which is allowed by law. Landlord reserves the right to prescribe the weight and position of all business machines and mechanical equipment, including safes, which shall be placed so as to distribute the weight. Business machines and mechanical equipment shall be placed and maintained by Tenant at Tenant's expense in settings sufficient in Landlord's judgment to absorb and prevent vibration, noise and annoyance. Tenant shall not move any safe, heavy machinery, heavy equipment, freight, bulky matter, or fixtures into or out of the Building without Landlord's prior written consent. If such safe, machinery, equipment, freight, bulky matter or fixtures requires special handling, Tenant agrees to employ only persons holding a Master Rigger's License to do said work, and that all work in connection therewith shall comply with applicable laws and regulations. Any such moving shall be at the sole risk and hazard of Tenant and Tenant will defend, indemnify and save Landlord harmless against and from any liability, loss, injury, claim or suit resulting directly or indirectly from such moving. Proper placement of all such business machines, etc., in the Premises shall be Tenant's responsibility. 15. INSURANCE, INDEMNIFICATION, EXONERATION AND EXCULPATION 15.1 GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE. Tenant shall procure, and keep in force and pay for Commercial General Liability Insurance insuring Tenant on an occurrence basis against all claims and demands for personal injury liability (including, without limitation, bodily injury, sickness, disease, and death) or damage to property which may be claimed to have occurred from and after the time Tenant and/or its contractors enter the Premises in accordance with Article 4 of this Lease, of not less than Two Million ($2,000,000) Dollars in the event of personal injury to any number of persons or damage to property, arising out of any one occurrence, and from time -39- 48 to time thereafter shall be not less than such higher amounts, if procurable, as may be reasonably required by Landlord and are customarily carried by responsible similar tenants in the City or Town wherein the Building is located. 15.2 CERTIFICATES OF INSURANCE. Such insurance shall be effected with insurers approved by Landlord, authorized to do business in the State wherein the Building is situated under valid and enforceable policies wherein Tenant names Landlord and Landlord's managing agent as additional insureds. Such insurance shall provide that it shall not be canceled or modified without at least thirty (30) days' prior written notice to each insured named therein. On or before the time Tenant and/or its contractors enter the Premises in accordance with Articles 4 and 14 of this Lease and thereafter not less than fifteen (15) days prior to the expiration date of each expiring policy, original copies of the policies provided for in Article 15.1 issued by the respective insurers, or certificates of such policies setting forth in full the provisions thereof and issued by such insurers together with evidence satisfactory to Landlord of the payment of all premiums for such policies, shall be delivered by Tenant to Landlord and certificates as aforesaid of such policies shall upon request of Landlord, be delivered by Tenant to the holder of any mortgage affecting the Premises. 15.3 GENERAL. Tenant will save Landlord, its agents and employees, harmless and will exonerate, defend and indemnify Landlord, its agents and employees, from and against any and all claims, liabilities or penalties asserted by or on behalf of any person, firm, corporation or public authority arising from the Tenant's breach of the Lease or: (a) On account of or based upon any injury to person, or loss of or damage to property, sustained or occurring on the Premises on account of or based upon the act, omission, fault, negligence or misconduct of any person whomsoever (except to the extent the same is caused by Landlord, its agents, contractors or employees); (b) On account of or based upon any injury to person, or loss of or damage to property, sustained or occurring elsewhere (other than on the Premises) in or about the Building (and, in particular, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, on or about the elevators, stairways, public corridors, sidewalks, concourses, arcades, malls, galleries, vehicular tunnels, approaches, areaways, roof, or other appurtenances and facilities used in connection with the Building or Premises) to the extent arising out of the use or occupancy of the Building or Premises by the Tenant, or by any person claiming by, through or under Tenant, to the extent on account of or based upon the fault, negligence or misconduct of Tenant, its agents, employees or contractors; and (c) On account of or based upon (including monies due on account of) any work or thing whatsoever done (other than by Landlord or its contractors, or agents or employees of either) on the Premises during the term of this Lease and during the period of time, if any, prior to the Term Commencement Date that Tenant may have been given access to the Premises. (d) Tenant's obligations under this Article 15.3 shall be insured either under the Commercial General Liability Insurance required under Article 15.1, above, or by a contractual insurance rider or other coverage; and certificates of insurance in respect thereof shall be provided by Tenant to Landlord upon request. -40- 49 (e) Except as set forth in this Article 15.3(e), Tenant shall not be liable to Landlord for consequential damages. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Tenant is required to indemnify Landlord against the claim of a third party pursuant to this Article 15.3, and if such third party recovers a judgment against Landlord for consequential damages based upon the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant, its contractors, agents or employees, Tenant shall be liable for such consequential damages suffered by such third party. The foregoing shall not limit Landlord's right to recover damages in accordance with Article 21.3 (x) or (y) or to recover damages in accordance with the last paragraph of Article 22 as the result of a holdover by Tenant in the premises beyond the term of the Lease. 15.4 PROPERTY OF TENANT. In addition to and not in limitation of the foregoing, Tenant covenants and agrees that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, all merchandise, furniture, fixtures and property of every kind, nature and description related or arising out of Tenant's leasehold estate hereunder, which may be in or upon the Premises or Building, in the public corridors, or on the sidewalks, areaways and approaches adjacent thereto, shall be at the sole risk and hazard of Tenant, and that if the whole or any part thereof shall be damaged, destroyed, stolen or removed from any cause or reason whatsoever no part of said damage or loss shall be charged to, or borne by, Landlord, except, subject to Article 19 hereof, to the extent such damage or loss is due to the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or Landlord's agents, employees or contractors, in which case Landlord shall bear loss or damage only to "ordinary office property" (as hereinafter defined). For the purpose of this Article 15.4, "ordinary office property" shall mean merchandise, furniture, and other tangible personal property of the kind and quantity which may customarily be expected to be found within comparable business offices in the greater Cambridge area, and excluding any unusually valuable or exotic property, works of art, and the like. 15.5 BURSTING OF PIPES, ETC. Landlord shall not be liable for any injury or damage to persons or property resulting from fire, explosion, falling plaster, steam, gas, air contaminants or emissions, electricity, electrical or electronic emanations or disturbance, water, rain or snow or leaks from any part of the Building or from the pipes, appliances, equipment or plumbing works or from the roof, street or sub-surface or from any other place or caused by dampness, vandalism, malicious mischief or by any other cause of whatever nature, unless caused by or due to the negligence of Landlord, its agents, servants or employees, and then, where notice and an opportunity to cure are appropriate (i.e., where Tenant has an opportunity to know or should have known of such condition sufficiently in advance of the occurrence of any such injury or damage resulting therefrom as would have enabled Landlord to prevent such damage or loss had Tenant notified Landlord of such condition) only after (i) notice to Landlord of the condition claimed to constitute negligence and (ii) the expiration of a reasonable time after such notice has been received by Landlord without Landlord having taken all reasonable and practicable means to cure or correct such condition; and pending such cure or correction by Landlord, Tenant shall take all reasonably prudent temporary measures and safeguards to prevent any injury, loss or damage to persons or property. In no event shall Landlord be liable for any loss, the risk of which is covered by Tenant's insurance or is required to be so covered by this Lease; nor shall Landlord or its agents be liable for any such damage caused by other tenants or persons in the Building or caused by operations in construction of any private, public, or quasi-public work; nor shall Landlord be liable for any latent defect in the Premises or in the Building; provided however, that: (i) the foregoing shall not limit Landlord's obligation to repair any latent defect in Landlord's Work of which Tenant gives Landlord written notice within the time period required pursuant to Article 4.8, and (ii) the foregoing shall not relieve Landlord of its obligation to -41- 50 perform maintenance and repairs pursuant to Article 8.7. Landlord shall cooperate with Tenant in such manner as Tenant shall reasonably request in the event that Tenant suffers any loss or damage by reason of any such latent defect so that Tenant shall be able to prosecute any claim which it may have against the contractor and/or material supplier responsible for such latent defect. Without limiting the foregoing, Landlord shall assign its right to Tenant against any such contractor and/or material supplier, if necessary to enable Tenant to prosecute its claim against any such contractor and/or material supplier. 15.6 REPAIRS AND ALTERATIONS--NO DIMINUTION OF RENTAL VALUE. Except as otherwise provided in Article 18, there shall be no allowance to Tenant for diminution of rental value and no liability on the part of Landlord by reason of inconvenience, annoyance or injury to Tenant arising from any repairs, alterations, additions, replacements or improvements made by Landlord, or any related work, Tenant or others in or to any portion of the Building or Premises or any property adjoining the Building, or in or to fixtures, appurtenances, or equipment thereof, or for failure of Landlord or others to make any repairs, alterations, additions or improvements in or to any portion of the Building, or of the Premises, or in or to the fixtures, appurtenances or equipment thereof. 16. ASSIGNMENT, MORTGAGING AND SUBLETTING A. Tenant covenants and agrees that neither this Lease nor the term and estate hereby granted, nor any interest herein or therein, will be assigned, mortgaged, pledged, encumbered or otherwise transferred, voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, and that neither the Premises, nor any part thereof will be encumbered in any manner by reason of any act or omission on the part of Tenant, or used or occupied, or permitted to be used or occupied, or utilized for desk space or for mailing privileges, by anyone other than Tenant, or for any use or purpose other than as stated in Exhibit 1, or be sublet, or offered or advertised for subletting. B. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Lease contained, except to the extent set forth in Paragraph C below: 1. Tenant shall, prior to offering or advertising the Premises, or any portion thereof for sublease or assignment give Landlord a Recapture Offer, as hereinafter defined. 2. For the purposes hereof a "Recapture Offer" shall be defined as a notice in writing from Tenant to Landlord which: (a) States that Tenant desires to sublet the Premises, or a portion thereof, or to assign its interest in this Lease. (b) Identifies the affected portion of the Premises ("Recapture Premises"). (c) Identifies the period of time ("Recapture Period") during which Tenant proposes to sublet the Recapture Premises or to assign its interest in the Lease. -42- 51 (d) Offers to Landlord to terminate the Lease in respect of the Recapture Premises (in the case of a proposed assignment of Tenant's interest in the Lease or a subletting for the remainder of the term of the Lease) or to suspend the term of the Lease PRO TANTO in respect of the Recapture Period (i.e. the term of the Lease in respect of the Recapture Premises shall be terminated during the Recapture Period and Tenant's rental obligations shall be reduced in proportion to the ratio of the Total Rentable Area of the Recapture Premises to the Total Rentable Area of the Premises then demised to Tenant). 3. Landlord shall have twenty-one (21) business days to accept a Recapture Offer. If Landlord does not timely give written notice to Tenant accepting a Recapture Offer, then Landlord agrees that, subject to Subparagraph 5 of this Paragraph B, it will not unreasonably withhold or delay its consent to a sublease of the Recapture Premises for the Recapture Period, or an assignment of Tenant's interest in the Lease, as the case may be, to a Qualified Transferee, as hereinafter defined. 4. For the purposes hereof, a "Qualified Transferee" shall be defined as a person, firm or corporation which, in Landlord's reasonable opinion: (a) is financially responsible and of good reputation (recognizing that Akamai Technologies, Inc. remains liable hereunder); and (b) is engaged in a business, the functional aspects of which, with respect to the Premises, are similar to the use of other Premises made by other office space tenants in the Building. 5. In the event that the proposed assignee or sublessee is then a tenant or subtenant of other premises in the Building or the Complex (an "Existing Tenant"), then Tenant's written request for Landlord's consent to a sublease or assignment to such entity shall be deemed to constitute a second Recapture Offer to Landlord with respect to such proposed sublease or assignment, except that Landlord shall have seven (7) calendar days from the receipt of Tenant's written request for consent to such proposed sublease or assignment in which to give Tenant written notice that Landlord accepts such Recapture Offer. 6. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Paragraph B contained: -43- 52 (a) If Tenant is in default of its obligations under the Lease at the time that it makes the aforesaid offer to Landlord, such default shall be deemed to be a "reasonable" reason for Landlord withholding its consent to any proposed subletting or assignment; and (b) If Tenant does not enter into a sublease with a subtenant (or an assignment to an assignee, as the case may be) approved by Landlord, as aforesaid, on or before the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days after the earlier of: (x) the expiration of said twenty-one (21) business day period, or (y) the date that Landlord notifies Tenant that Landlord will not accept Tenant's offer to terminate or suspend the Lease, then Landlord shall have the right arbitrarily to withhold its consent to any subletting or assignment proposed to be entered into by Tenant after the expiration of said one hundred eighty (180) day period unless Tenant again offers, in accordance with this Paragraph B, either to terminate or to suspend the Lease in respect of the portion of the Premises proposed to be sublet (or in respect of the entirety of the Premises in the event of a proposed assignment, as the case may be). If Tenant shall make any subsequent offers to terminate or suspend the Lease pursuant to this Paragraph B, any such subsequent offers shall be treated in all respects as if it is Tenant's first offer to suspend or terminate the Lease pursuant to this Paragraph B, provided that the period of time Landlord shall have in which to accept or reject such subsequent offer shall be fourteen (14) business days. 7. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, except in connection with a Protected Sublease, as defined in Subparagraph 8 of this Paragraph B, Tenant shall have no right, under this Paragraph B hereof, prior to the date that is the earlier of (i) one (1) year after the Full Rent Commencement Date, and (ii) the date when Buildings 100, 300 and 700 are one hundred percent (100%) leased. 8. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall have the right to sublease up to 35,696 square feet of Rentable Floor Area, in the aggregate, of the Premises for a term not in excess of forty-two months (a "Protected Sublease") without the requirement of giving Landlord a Recapture Notice with respect thereto, and without being subject to the provisions of Paragraph (7) above. Such Protected Sublease shall, however, require Landlord's consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed for a sublease to a Qualified Transferee, as defined in Paragraph (4) above, and shall be subject to the provisions of -44- 53 Paragraph (5) above allowing Landlord to recapture the relevant portion of the Premises in connection with subleases or assignments to Existing Tenants. Tenant shall pay Landlord 50% of the net (i.e., net of the reasonable and customary brokerage, legal, design and construction costs incurred by Tenant in connection with such Protected Sublease) amount of all rent and other consideration which Tenant receives as a result of a Protected Sublease that is in excess of the rent payable to Landlord for the portion of the Premises and Term covered by the Transfer. Tenant shall pay Landlord for Landlord's share of any excess within ten (10) days after Tenant's receipt of such excess consideration. 9. No subletting or assignment shall relieve Tenant of its primary obligation as party-Tenant hereunder, nor shall it reduce or increase Landlord's obligations under the Lease. C. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, Tenant shall have the right, without obtaining Landlord's consent and without giving Landlord a Recapture Offer, to assign its interest in this Lease and to sublease the premises, or any portion thereof, to an Affiliated Entity, as hereinafter defined, so long as such entity remains in such relationship to Tenant, and provided that prior to or simultaneously with such assignment or sublease, such Affiliated Entity executes and delivers to Landlord an Assumption Agreement, as hereinabove defined. For the purposes hereof, an "Affiliated Entity" shall be defined as any entity which is controlled by, is under common control with, or which controls Tenant. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, it is hereby expressly understood and agreed, however, that if Tenant is a corporation, that the assignment or transfer of this Lease, and the term and estate hereby granted, to any corporation into which Tenant is merged or with which Tenant is consolidated or which acquires all or substantially all of its stock or assets which corporation shall have a net worth at least equal to that of Tenant immediately prior to such merger or consolidation (such corporation being hereinafter called "Assignee"), shall not be deemed to be prohibited hereby, or to require Landlord's consent, or to require the furnishing of a Recapture Offer, if, and upon the express condition that Assignee and Tenant shall promptly execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord whereby Assignee shall agree to be independently bound by and upon all the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions set forth in this Lease on the part of Tenant to be performed, and whereby Assignee shall expressly agree that the provisions of this Article 16 shall, notwithstanding such assignment or transfer, continue to be binding upon it with respect to all future assignments and transfers. D. If Tenant is an individual who uses and/or occupies the Premises with partners, or if Tenant is a partnership, then: (i) Each present and future partner shall be personally bound by and upon all of the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions set forth in this Lease on the part of Tenant to be performed; and -45- 54 (ii) In confirmation of the foregoing, Landlord may (but without being required to do so) request (and Tenant shall duly comply) that Tenant, at the time that Tenant admits any new partner to its partnership, shall require each such new partner to execute an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord whereby such new partner shall agree to be personally bound by and upon all of the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease on the part of Tenant to be performed, without regard to the time when such new partner is admitted to partnership or when any obligations under any such covenants, etc., accrue. E. The listing of any name other than that of Tenant, whether on the doors of the Premises or on the Building directory, or otherwise, shall not operate to vest in any such other person, firm or corporation any right or interest in this Lease or in the Premises or be deemed to effect or evidence any consent of Landlord, it being expressly understood that any such listing is a privilege extended by Landlord revocable at will by written notice to Tenant. F. If this Lease be assigned, or if the Premises or any part thereof be sublet or occupied by anybody other than Tenant, Landlord may, at any time and from time to time, collect rent and other charges from the assignee, subtenant or occupant, and apply the net amount collected to the rent and other charges herein reserved then due and thereafter becoming due, but no such assignment, subletting, occupancy or collection shall be deemed a waiver of this covenant, or the acceptance of the assignee, subtenant or occupant as a tenant, or a release of Tenant from the further performance by Tenant of covenants on the part of Tenant herein contained. Any consent by Landlord to a particular assignment or subletting shall not in any way diminish the prohibition stated in the first sentence of this Article 16 or the continuing liability of the Tenant named on Exhibit 1 as the party Tenant under this Lease. No assignment or subletting shall affect the purpose for which the Premises may be used as stated in Exhibit 1. G. Tenant agrees that in no event shall this Lease be assigned, or all or any portion of the Premises be sublet, to any of the following entities: Gardner Group, Inc.; META Group, Inc.; GIGA Information Group, Inc.; Jupiter Communications; The Yankee Group, a subsidiary of Primark Corporation; Odyssey Research; and Mainspring Communications, Inc. 17. MISCELLANEOUS COVENANTS Tenant covenants and agrees as follows: 17.1 RULES AND REGULATIONS. Tenant will faithfully observe and comply with the Rules and Regulations, if any, annexed hereto and such other and further reasonable Rules and Regulations as Landlord hereafter at any time or from time to time may make and may communicate in writing to Tenant, which in the reasonable judgment of Landlord shall be necessary for the reputation, safety, care or appearance of the Building, or the preservation of good order therein, or the operation or maintenance of the Building, or the equipment thereof, or the comfort of tenants or others in the Building, provided, however, that in the case of any conflict between the provisions of this Lease and any such regulations, the provisions of this Lease shall control, and provided further that nothing contained in this Lease shall be construed to impose upon Landlord any duty or obligation to enforce the Rules and Regulations or the terms, covenants or conditions in any other lease as against any other tenant and Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for violation of the same by any other tenant, its servants, employees, agents, contractors, visitors, invitees or licensees. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in -46- 55 this Lease contained, Landlord agrees that it will not enforce said Rules and Regulations against Tenant in a discriminatory or arbitrary manner. 17.2 ACCESS TO PREMISES--SHORING. Tenant shall: (i) permit Landlord to erect, use and maintain pipes, ducts and conduits in and through the Premises, provided the same do not materially reduce the floor area or materially adversely affect the appearance thereof; (ii) upon reasonable prior oral notice (except that no notice shall be required in emergency situations), permit Landlord and any mortgagee of the Building or the Building and land or of the interest of Landlord therein, and any lessor under any ground or underlying lease, and their representatives, to have free and unrestricted access to and to enter upon the Premises at all reasonable hours for the purposes of inspection or of making repairs, replacements or improvements in or to the Premises or the Building or equipment (including, without limitation, sanitary, electrical, heating, air conditioning or other systems) or of complying with all laws, orders and requirements of governmental or other authority or of exercising any right reserved to Landlord by this Lease (including the right during the progress of any such repairs, replacements or improvements or while performing work and furnishing materials in connection with compliance with any such laws, orders or requirements to take upon or through, or to keep and store within, the Premises all necessary materials, tools and equipment); and (iii) permit Landlord, at reasonable times, upon reasonable advance notice, to show the Premises during ordinary business hours to any existing or prospective mortgagee, ground lessor, space lessee, purchaser, or assignee of any mortgage, of the Building or of the Building and the land or of the interest of Landlord therein, and during the period of 12 months next preceding the Termination Date to any person contemplating the leasing of the Premises or any part thereof. If, during the last month of the term, Tenant shall have removed all or substantially all of Tenant's property therefrom, Landlord may immediately enter and alter, renovate and redecorate the Premises, without elimination or abatement of rent, or incurring liability to Tenant for any compensation, and such acts shall have no effect upon this Lease. If Tenant shall not be personally present to open and permit an entry into the Premises at any time when for any reason an entry therein shall be necessary or permissible, Landlord or Landlord's agents may enter the same by a master key, or may forcibly enter the same, without rendering Landlord or such agents liable therefor (if during such entry Landlord or Landlord's agents shall accord reasonable care to Tenant's property), and without in any manner affecting the obligations and covenants of this Lease. Provided that Landlord shall incur no additional expense thereby, Landlord shall exercise its rights of access to the Premises permitted under any of the terms and provisions of this Lease in such manner as to minimize to the extent practicable interference with Tenant's use and occupation of the Premises. If an excavation shall be made upon land adjacent to the Premises or shall be authorized to be made, Tenant shall afford to the person causing or authorized to cause such excavation, license to enter upon the Premises for the purpose of doing such work as said person shall deem necessary to preserve the Building from injury or damage and to support the same by proper foundations without any claims for damages or indemnity against Landlord, or diminution or abatement of rent. 17.3 ACCIDENTS TO SANITARY AND OTHER SYSTEMS. Tenant shall give to Landlord prompt notice of any fire or accident in the Premises or in the Building and of any damage to, or defective condition in, any part or appurtenance of the Building including, without limitation, sanitary, electrical, ventilation, heating and air conditioning or other systems located in, or passing through, the Premises. Except as otherwise provided in Articles 18 and 20, and subject to Tenant's obligations in Article 14, such damage or defective condition shall be remedied by Landlord with reasonable diligence, but if such damage or defective condition was caused by Tenant or by the employees, licensees, contractors or invitees of Tenant, the cost to remedy the -47- 56 same shall be paid by Tenant. In addition, all reasonable costs incurred by Landlord in connection with the investigation of any notice given by Tenant shall be paid by Tenant if the reported damage or defective condition was caused by Tenant or by the employees, licensees, contractors, or invitees of Tenant. Tenant shall not be entitled to claim any eviction from the Premises or any damages arising from any such damage or defect unless the same (i) shall have been occasioned by the negligence of the Landlord, its agents, servants or employees and (ii) shall not, after notice to Landlord of the condition claimed to constitute negligence, have been cured or corrected within a reasonable time after such notice has been received by Landlord; and in case of a claim of eviction unless such damage or defective condition shall have rendered the Premises untenantable and they shall not have been made tenantable by Landlord within a reasonable time. 17.4 SIGNS, BLINDS AND DRAPES. (a) Tenant shall put no signs in any part of the Building. No signs or blinds may be put on or in any window or elsewhere if visible from the exterior of the Building, nor may the building standard drapes or blinds be removed by Tenant. Tenant may hang its own drapes, provided that they shall not in any way interfere with the building standard drapery or blinds or be visible from the exterior of the Building and that such drapes are so hung and installed that when drawn, the building standard drapery or blinds are automatically also drawn. Any signs or lettering in the public corridors or on the doors shall conform to Landlord's building standard design. Neither Landlord's name, nor the name of the Building or any Center, Office Park or other Park of which the Building is a part, or the name of any other structure erected therein shall be used without Landlord's consent in any advertising material (except on business stationery or as an address in advertising matter), nor shall any such name, as aforesaid, be used in any undignified, confusing, detrimental or misleading manner. (b) Provided that and for so long as Akamai Technologies, Inc., itself or an Assignee or Affiliated Entity (as those terms are defined in Article 16) is occupying and paying rent on not less than seventy percent (70%) of the entirety of Floors 1 through 5 of the Building, excluding the retail portions thereof, Tenant (or an Assignee or Affiliated Entity occupying the Premises as aforesaid) shall have the right to erect and maintain signage on the exterior of the Building (the "Exterior Signage") as described in and subject to the restrictions contained in Exhibit 7 attached hereto, and as shown on the plan attached hereto as part of said Exhibit 7, provided (i) the Exterior Signage complies with all applicable laws and shall not interfere with the Landlord's signage program for the Building and Complex (and Tenant shall have obtained any necessary permits prior to erecting the Exterior Signage), (ii) the Exterior Signage shall be located as shown on the plan contained in Exhibit 7, (iii) the materials, design and lighting of the Exterior Signage, and any requested changes thereto, shall be subject to Landlord's prior written approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, and (iv) Tenant shall at all times maintain the Exterior Signage in good order and condition and shall remove the Exterior Signage at the expiration or earlier termination of the term hereof or upon Landlord's written demand after the failure of condition (ii) above, and shall repair any damage to the Building caused by the Exterior Signage or its installation or removal. Tenant's signage rights pursuant to the foregoing provision shall be exclusive as to all portions of the Building; provided, however, that the retail tenant(s) of the Building shall have the right to erect signage not more than twenty (20) feet above ground level on the exterior of the side(s) of the Building on which their premises have window frontage. Any such signage by retail tenant(s) (x) shall be in accordance with all applicable law, and (y) with respect to the signage immediately facing Building 500 in the -48- 57 Complex, so long as Akamai Technologies, Inc., itself or an Assignee or Affiliated Entity collectively are occupying at least seventy percent (70%) of said Building 500, such signage shall be subject to Tenant's approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. Landlord agrees, at Tenant's cost, to reasonably cooperate with Tenant in obtaining any necessary governmental approvals, permits, etc. in connection with the Exterior Signage. Tenant shall have the right, from time to time throughout the term of the Lease, to replace its signage (if any) with signage which is equivalent to the signage being replaced, subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Article 17.4 and Exhibit 7. 17.5 ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE. Either party shall at any time and from time to time upon not less than twenty (20) days' prior notice by the other party, execute, acknowledge and deliver to the requesting party a statement in writing certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or if there have been modifications, that the same is in full force and effect as modified and stating the modifications), and the dates to which the Yearly Rent and other charges have been paid in advance, if any, stating whether or not the other party is in default in performance of any covenant, agreement, term, provision or condition contained in this Lease and, if so, specifying each such default and such other facts as the requesting party may reasonably request, it being intended that any such statement delivered pursuant hereto may be relied upon by any prospective purchaser of the Building or of the Building and the land or of any interest of Landlord therein, any mortgagee or prospective mortgagee thereof, any lessor or prospective lessor thereof, any lessee or prospective lessee thereof, or any prospective assignee of any mortgage thereof. Time is of the essence in respect of any such requested certificate, Tenant hereby acknowledging the importance of such certificates in mortgage financing arrangements, prospective sale and the like. Tenant hereby appoints Landlord Tenant's attorney-in-fact in its name and behalf to execute such statement if Tenant shall fail to execute such statement within such twenty-(20)-day period. 17.6 PROHIBITED MATERIALS AND PROPERTY. Tenant shall not bring or permit to be brought or kept in or on the Premises or elsewhere in the Building (i) any inflammable, combustible or explosive fluid, material, chemical or substance including, without limitation, any hazardous substances as defined under Massachusetts General Laws chapter 21E, the Federal Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), 42 USC Section 9601 et seq., as amended, under Section 3001 of the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended, or under any regulation of any governmental authority regulating environmental or health matters (except for standard office supplies stored in proper containers), (ii) any materials, appliances or equipment (including, without limitation, materials, appliances and equipment selected by Tenant for the construction or other preparation of the Premises and furniture and carpeting) which pose any danger to life, safety or health or may cause damage, injury or death; (iii) any unique, unusually valuable, rare or exotic property, work of art or the like unless the same is fully insured under all-risk coverage, or (iv) any data processing, electronic, optical or other equipment or property of a delicate, fragile or vulnerable nature unless the same are housed, shielded and protected against harm and damage, whether by cleaning or maintenance personnel, radiations or emanations from other equipment now or hereafter installed in the Building, or otherwise. Nor shall Tenant cause or permit any potentially harmful air emissions, odors of cooking or other processes, or any unusual or other objectionable odors or emissions to emanate from or permeate the Premises. 17.7 REQUIREMENTS OF LAW--FINES AND PENALTIES. Tenant at its sole expense shall comply with all laws, rules, orders and regulations, including, without limitation, all energy- -49- 58 related requirements, of Federal, State, County and Municipal Authorities and with any direction of any public officer or officers, pursuant to law, which shall impose any duty upon Landlord or Tenant with respect to or arising out of Tenant's use or occupancy of the Premises. In addition, Tenant shall, at Tenant's sole expense, for so long as the Parking and Traffic Demand Management Plan dated May 9, 1999 as approved by (and subject to the conditions set for in such approval) the City of Cambridge on July 9, 1999 remains applicable to the Complex, offer to subsidize mass transit monthly passes for all of its employees and otherwise cooperate with Landlord in encouraging employees to seek alternate modes of transportation. Tenant shall reimburse and compensate Landlord for all expenditures made by, or damages or fines sustained or incurred by, Landlord due to nonperformance or noncompliance with or breach or failure to observe any item, covenant, or condition of this Lease upon Tenant's part to be kept, observed, performed or complied with. If Tenant receives notice of any violation of law, ordinance, order or regulation applicable to the Premises, it shall give prompt notice thereof to Landlord. Landlord shall comply with any laws, rules, orders, regulations, energy requirements ("Laws") and with any direction of any public office or officer relating to the maintenance or operation of the Building as an office building, and the costs so incurred by Landlord shall be included in Operating Costs in accordance with the provisions of Article 9. Landlord hereby represents to Tenant that, as of the Execution Date of the Lease, Landlord has not received notice from any governmental agency that the Building or Premises are in violation of any applicable laws. 17.8 TENANT'S ACTS--EFFECT ON INSURANCE. Tenant shall not do or permit to be done any act or thing upon the Premises or elsewhere in the Building which will invalidate or be in conflict with any insurance policies covering the Building and the fixtures and property therein; and shall not do, or permit to be done, any act or thing upon the Premises which shall subject Landlord to any liability or responsibility for injury to any person or persons or to property by reason of any business or operation being carried on upon said Premises or for any other reason. Tenant at its own expense shall comply with all rules, orders, regulations and requirements of the Board of Fire Underwriters, or any other similar body having jurisdiction, and shall not (i) do, or permit anything to be done, in or upon the Premises, or bring or keep anything therein, except as now or hereafter permitted by the Fire Department, Board of Underwriters, Fire Insurance Rating Organization, or other authority having jurisdiction, and then only in such quantity and manner of storage as will not increase the rate for any insurance applicable to the Building, or (ii) use the Premises in a manner which shall increase such insurance rates on the Building, or on property located therein, over that applicable when Tenant first took occupancy of the Premises hereunder. If by reason of the failure of Tenant to comply with the provisions hereof the insurance rate applicable to any policy of insurance shall at any time thereafter be higher than it otherwise would be, the Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for that part of any insurance premiums thereafter paid by Landlord, which shall have been charged because of such failure by Tenant. 17.9 MISCELLANEOUS. Tenant shall not suffer or permit the Premises or any fixtures, equipment or utilities therein or serving the same, to be overloaded, damaged or defaced, nor permit any hole to be drilled or made in any part thereof. Tenant shall not suffer or permit any employee, contractor, business invitee or visitor to violate any covenant, agreement or obligations of the Tenant under this Lease. 18. DAMAGE BY FIRE, ETC. (a) During the entire term of this Lease, and adjusting insurance coverages to reflect current values from time to time:--(i) Landlord shall keep the Building (excluding work, -50- 59 installations, improvements and betterments made in the Premises after the Term Commencement Date [called "Over-Building-Standard Property"] and any other property installed by or at the expense of Tenant) insured against loss or damage caused by any peril covered under fire, extended coverage and all risk insurance in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) replacement cost value above foundation walls; and (ii) Tenant shall keep its personal property in and about the Premises and the Over-Building-Standard Property insured against loss or damage caused by any peril covered under fire, extended coverage and all risk insurance in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) replacement cost value. Such Tenant's insurance shall insure the interests of both Landlord and Tenant as their respective interests may appear from time to time and shall name Landlord as an additional insured; and the proceeds thereof shall be used only for the replacement or restoration of such personal property and the Over-Building-Standard Property. (b) If any portion of the Premises required to be insured by Landlord under the preceding paragraph shall be damaged by fire or other insured casualty, Landlord shall proceed with diligence, subject to the then applicable statutes, building codes, zoning ordinances, and regulations of any governmental authority, and at the expense of Landlord (but only to the extent of insurance proceeds made available to Landlord by any mortgagee and/or ground lessor of the real property of which the Premises are a part) to repair or cause to be repaired such damage, provided, however, in respect of any over-Building Standard Property as shall have been damaged by such fire or other casualty and which (in the judgment of Landlord) can more effectively be repaired as an integral part of Landlord's repair work on the Premises, that such repairs to such Tenant's alterations, decorations, additions and improvements shall be performed by Landlord but at Tenant's expense; in all other respects, all repairs to and replacements of Tenant's property and Over-Building-Standard Property shall be made by and at the expense of Tenant. If the Premises or any part thereof shall have been rendered unfit for use and occupation hereunder by reason of such damage the Yearly Rent or a just and proportionate part thereof, according to the nature and extent to which the Premises shall have been so rendered unfit, shall be suspended or abated until the Premises (except as to the property which is to be repaired by or at the expense of Tenant) shall have been restored as nearly as practicably may be to the condition in which they were immediately prior to such fire or other casualty. Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord in such manner as Landlord may reasonably request in assisting Landlord in collecting insurance proceeds due in connection with any casualty which affects the Premises. Landlord shall not be liable for delays in the making of any such repairs which are due to government regulation, casualties and strikes, unavailability of labor and materials, and other causes beyond the reasonable control of Landlord, nor shall Landlord be liable for any inconvenience or annoyance to Tenant or injury to the business of Tenant resulting from delays in repairing such damage. (c) LANDLORD'S TERMINATION RIGHTS. If (i) the Premises are so damaged by fire or other casualty (whether or not insured) at any time during the last thirty months of the term hereof that the cost to repair such damage is reasonably estimated to exceed one third of the total Yearly Rent payable hereunder for the period from the estimated date of restoration until the Termination Date, or (ii) the Building (whether or not including any portion of the Premises) is so damaged by fire or other casualty (whether or not insured) that substantial alteration or reconstruction or demolition of the Building shall in Landlord's judgment be required, then and in either of such events, this Lease and the term hereof may be terminated at the election of Landlord by a notice in writing of its election so to terminate which shall be given by Landlord to Tenant within sixty (60) days following such fire or other casualty, the effective termination date -51- 60 of which shall be not less than thirty (30) days after the day on which such termination notice is received by Tenant. (d) TENANT'S TERMINATION RIGHTS. In the event that the premises or the Building are damaged by fire or other casualty to such an extent so as to render the premises untenantable, and if Landlord shall fail to substantially complete said repairs or restoration within two hundred fifty (250) days (sixty (60) days in the case of a fire or other casualty occurring during the last twelve (12) months of the term hereof, as the same may have been extended) after the date of such fire or other casualty for any reason other than Tenant's fault, Tenant may terminate this Lease by giving Landlord written notice as follows: (i) Said notice shall be given after said two hundred fifty (250) day period or sixty (60) day period, as the case may be. (ii) Said notice shall set forth an effective date which is not earlier than thirty (30) days after Landlord receives said notice. (iii) If said repairs or restoration are substantially complete on or before the date thirty (30) days (which thirty-(30)-day period shall be extended by the length of any delays caused by Tenant or Tenant's contractors) after Landlord receives such notice, said notice shall have no further force and effect. (iv) If said repairs or restoration are not substantially complete on or before the date thirty (30) days (which thirty-(30)-day period shall be extended by the length of any delays caused by Tenant or Tenant's contractors) after Landlord receives such notice, the Lease shall terminate as of said effective date. (e) GENERAL PROVISIONS RELATING TO TERMINATION BASED UPON CASUALTY. In the event of any termination of this Lease pursuant to this Article 18: (i) The term hereof shall expire as of such effective termination date as though that were the Termination Date as stated in Exhibit 1 and the Yearly Rent shall be apportioned as of such date. (ii) If the Premises or any part thereof shall have been rendered unfit for use and occupation by reason of such damage the Yearly Rent for the period from the date of the fire or other casualty to the effective termination date, or a just and proportionate part thereof, according to the nature and extent to which the Premises shall have been so rendered unfit, shall be abated. (iii) If a Restructuring Rent Event, as defined in Paragraph 1 of the Rider to this Lease, occurs, and if Landlord draws upon any Letter of Credit which Landlord is holding pursuant to Paragraph 1 of the Rider to this Lease for the purpose of making a Restructuring Rent Payment, AND if the Lease is subsequently terminated by either party pursuant to this Article 18 based upon a fire or other casualty, then Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days of the effective termination date of such casualty, pay to Tenant a Casualty Termination Payment, as hereinafter defined. The "Casualty Termination Payment" shall be defined as the amount of principal which would remain unpaid at the effective termination -52- 61 date on a loan (i) in the original principal amount of the Restructuring Rent Payment, (ii) with interest at the rate of the rate per annum announced by Fleet Bank, N.A., or its successor, from time to time as its "prime" rate, plus one-quarter percent (1/4%), (iii) which is repaid on a direct reduction basis in equal monthly payments of principal and interest, and (iv) with a term commencing with the application of the Restructuring Rent Payment and ending as of the expiration of the then-current term of the Lease. If, prior to the termination of the Lease based upon a fire or other casualty, there have been two Restructuring Rent Payments pursuant to Paragraph 1.C.6 of the Rider to this Lease, the Casualty Termination Payment shall be calculated separately for each such Restructuring Rent Payment. 19. WAIVER OF SUBROGATION In any case in which Tenant shall be obligated to pay to Landlord any loss, cost, damage, liability, or expense suffered or incurred by Landlord, Landlord shall allow to Tenant as an offset against the amount thereof (i) the net proceeds of any insurance collected by Landlord for or on account of such loss, cost, damage, liability or expense, provided that the allowance of such offset does not invalidate or prejudice the policy or policies under which such proceeds were payable, and (ii) if such loss, cost, damage, liability or expense shall have been caused by a peril against which Landlord has agreed to procure insurance coverage under the terms of this Lease, the amount of such insurance coverage, whether or not actually procured by Landlord. In any case in which Landlord or Landlord's managing agent shall be obligated to pay to Tenant any loss, cost, damage, liability or expense suffered or incurred by Tenant, Tenant shall allow to Landlord or Landlord's managing agent, as the case may be, as an offset against the amount thereof (i) the net proceeds of any insurance collected by Tenant for or on account of such loss, cost, damage, liability, or expense, provided that the allowance of such offset does not invalidate the policy or policies under which such proceeds were payable and (ii) the amount of any loss, cost, damage, liability or expense caused by a peril covered by fire insurance with the broadest form of property insurance generally available on property in buildings of the type of the Building, whether or not actually procured by Tenant. The parties hereto shall each procure an appropriate clause in, or endorsement on, any property insurance policy covering the Premises and the Building and personal property, fixtures and equipment located thereon and therein, pursuant to which the insurance companies waive subrogation or consent to a waiver of right of recovery in favor of either party, its respective agents or employees. Having obtained such clauses and/or endorsements, each party hereby agrees that it will not make any claim against or seek to recover from the other or its agents or employees for any loss or damage to its property or the property of others resulting from fire or other perils covered by such property insurance. 20. CONDEMNATION - EMINENT DOMAIN (a) In the event that the Premises or any part thereof, or the whole or any part of the Building, shall be taken or appropriated by eminent domain or shall be condemned for any public or quasi-public use, or (by virtue of any such taking, appropriation or condemnation) shall suffer any damage (direct, indirect or consequential) for which Landlord or Tenant shall be entitled to compensation, then (and in any such event) this Lease and the term hereof may be terminated at -53- 62 the election of Landlord by a notice in writing of its election so to terminate which shall be given by Landlord to Tenant within sixty (60) days following the date on which Landlord shall have received notice of such taking, appropriation or condemnation. In the event that a substantial part of the Premises or of the means of access thereto shall be so taken, appropriated or condemned, then (and in any such event) this Lease and the term hereof may be terminated at the election of Tenant by a notice in writing of its election so to terminate which shall be given by Tenant to Landlord within sixty (60) days following the date on which Tenant shall have received notice of such taking, appropriation or condemnation. (b) Upon the giving of any such notice of termination (either by Landlord or Tenant) this Lease and the term hereof shall terminate on or retroactively as of the date on which Tenant shall be required to vacate any part of the Premises or shall be deprived of a substantial part of the means of access thereto, provided, however, that Landlord may in Landlord's notice elect to terminate this Lease and the term hereof retroactively as of the date on which such taking, appropriation or condemnation became legally effective. In the event of any such termination, this Lease and the term hereof shall expire as of such effective termination date as though that were the Termination Date as stated in Exhibit 1, and the Yearly Rent shall be apportioned as of such date. (c) If a Restructuring Rent Event, as defined in Paragraph 1 of the Rider to this Lease, occurs, and if Landlord draws upon any Letter of Credit which Landlord is holding pursuant to Paragraph 1 of the Rider to this Lease for the purpose of making a Restructuring Rent Payment, AND if the Lease is subsequently terminated by either party pursuant to this Article 20 based upon taking or condemnation, as aforesaid, then Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days of the effective termination date of such taking, pay to Tenant a Taking Termination Payment, as hereinafter defined. The "Taking Termination Payment" shall be defined as the amount of principal which would remain unpaid at the effective termination date on a loan (i) in the original principal amount of the Restructuring Rent Payment, (ii) with interest at the rate of the rate per annum announced by Fleet Bank, N.A., or its successor, from time to time as its "prime" rate, plus one-quarter percent (1/4%), (iii) which is repaid on a direct reduction basis in equal monthly payments of principal and interest, and (iv) with a term commencing with the application of the Restructuring Rent Payment and ending as of the expiration of the then-current term of the Lease. If, prior to the termination of the Lease based upon a taking, there have been two Restructuring Rent Payments pursuant to Paragraph 1.C.6 of the Rider to this Lease, the Taking Termination Payment shall be calculated separately for each such Restructuring Rent Payment. (d) If neither party (having the right so to do) elects to terminate Landlord will, with reasonable diligence and at Landlord's expense, restore the remainder of the Premises, or the remainder of the means of access, as nearly as practicably may be to the same condition as obtained prior to such taking, appropriation or condemnation in which event (i) the Total Rentable Area shall be equitably adjusted, (ii) a just proportion of the Yearly Rent, according to the nature and extent of the taking, appropriation or condemnation and the resulting permanent injury to the Premises and the means of access thereto, shall be permanently abated, and (iii) a just proportion of the remainder of the Yearly Rent, according to the nature and extent of the taking, appropriation or condemnation and the resultant injury sustained by the Premises and the means of access thereto, shall be abated until what remains of the Premises and the means of access thereto shall have been restored as fully as may be for permanent use and occupation by Tenant hereunder. Except for any award specifically reimbursing Tenant for moving or relocation expenses, there are expressly reserved to Landlord all rights to compensation and -54- 63 damages created, accrued or accruing by reason of any such taking, appropriation or condemnation, in implementation and in confirmation of which Tenant does hereby acknowledge that Landlord shall be entitled to receive all such compensation and damages, grant to Landlord all and whatever rights (if any) Tenant may have to such compensation and damages, and agree to execute and deliver all and whatever further instruments of assignment as Landlord may from time to time request. In the event of any taking of the Premises or any part thereof for temporary (i.e., not in excess of one (1) year) use, (i) this Lease shall be and remain unaffected thereby, and (ii) Tenant shall be entitled to receive for itself any award made to the extent allocable to the Premises in respect of such taking on account of such use, provided, that if any taking is for a period extending beyond the term of this Lease, such award shall be apportioned between Landlord and Tenant as of the Termination Date or earlier termination of this Lease. 21. DEFAULT 21.1 CONDITIONS OF LIMITATION - RE-ENTRY - TERMINATION. This Lease and the herein term and estate are, upon the condition that if (a) subject to Article 21.7, Tenant shall neglect or fail to perform or observe any of the Tenant's covenants or agreements herein, including (without limitation) the covenants or agreements with regard to the payment when due of rent, additional charges, reimbursement for increase in Landlord's costs, or any other charge payable by Tenant to Landlord (all of which shall be considered as part of Yearly Rent for the purposes of invoking Landlord's statutory or other rights and remedies in respect of payment defaults); or (b) Tenant shall desert or abandon the Premises or the same shall become vacant (whether or not the keys shall have been surrendered or the rent shall have been paid); or (c) Tenant shall be involved in financial difficulties as evidenced by an admission in writing by Tenant of Tenant's inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or by the making or offering to make a composition of its debts with its creditors; or (d) Tenant shall make an assignment or trust mortgage, or other conveyance or transfer of like nature, of all or a substantial part of its property for the benefit of its creditors, or (e) an attachment on mesne process, on execution or otherwise, or other legal process shall issue against Tenant or its property and a sale of any of its assets shall be held thereunder; or (f) any judgment, final beyond appeal or any lien, attachment or the like in excess of $250,000.00 shall be entered, recorded or filed against Tenant in any court, registry, etc. and Tenant shall fail to pay such judgment within thirty (30) days after the judgment shall have become final beyond appeal or to discharge or secure by surety bond such lien, attachment, etc. within thirty (30) days of such entry, recording or filing, as the case may be; or (g) the leasehold hereby created shall be taken on execution or by other process of law and shall not be revested in Tenant within thirty (30) days thereafter; or (h) a receiver, sequesterer, trustee or similar officer shall be appointed by a court of competent jurisdiction to take charge of all or any part of Tenant's property and such appointment shall not be vacated within thirty (30) days; or (i) any proceeding shall be instituted by or against Tenant pursuant to any of the provisions of any Act of Congress or State law relating to bankruptcy, reorganizations, arrangements, compositions or other relief from creditors, and, in the case of any proceeding instituted against it, if Tenant shall fail to have such proceedings dismissed within thirty (30) days or if Tenant is adjudged bankrupt or insolvent as a result of any such proceeding, or (j) any event shall occur or any contingency shall arise whereby this Lease, or the term and estate thereby created, would (by operation of law or otherwise) devolve upon or pass to any person, firm or corporation other than Tenant, except as expressly permitted under Article 16 hereof, or (k) for so long as Building 500 in the Complex is owned by Landlord or an affiliate of Landlord, Tenant shall default beyond any applicable notice or cure period under that certain lease dated as of September 22, 1999 between Landlord and Tenant for premises at Building 500 in the Complex, as amended (the -55- 64 "Building 500 Lease") - then, and in any such event (except as hereinafter in Article 21.2 otherwise provided) Landlord may, by notice to Tenant, elect to terminate this Lease; and thereupon (and without prejudice to any remedies which might otherwise be available for arrears of rent or other charges due hereunder or preceding breach of covenant or agreement and without prejudice to Tenant's liability for damages as hereinafter stated), upon the giving of such notice, this Lease shall terminate as of the date specified therein as though that were the Termination Date as stated in Exhibit 1. Without being taken or deemed to be guilty of any manner of trespass or conversion, and without being liable to indictment, prosecution or damages therefor, Landlord may, forcibly if necessary, enter into and upon the Premises (or any part thereof in the name of the whole); repossess the same as of its former estate; and expel Tenant and those claiming under Tenant. Wherever "Tenant" is used in subdivisions (c), (d), (e), (f), (g), (h) and (i) of this Article 21.1, it shall be deemed to include any one of (i) any corporation of which Tenant is a controlled subsidiary and (ii) any guarantor of any of Tenant's obligations under this Lease. The words "re-entry" and "re-enter" as used in this Lease are not restricted to their technical legal meanings. 21.2 INTENTIONALLY OMITTED. 21.3 DAMAGES - TERMINATION. Upon the termination of this Lease under the provisions of this Article 21, then except as hereinabove in Article 21.2 otherwise provided, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the rent and other charges payable by Tenant to Landlord up to the time of such termination, shall continue to be liable for any preceding breach of covenant, and in addition, shall pay to Landlord as damages, at the election of Landlord either: (x) the amount by which, at the time of the termination of this Lease (or at any time thereafter if Landlord shall have initially elected damages under subparagraph (y), below), (i) the aggregate of the rent and other charges projected over the period commencing with such termination and ending on the Termination Date as stated in Exhibit 1 exceeds (ii) the aggregate projected rental value of the Premises for such period; or: (y) amounts equal to the rent and other charges which would have been payable by Tenant had this Lease not been so terminated, payable upon the due dates therefor specified herein following such termination and until the Termination Date as specified in Exhibit 1, provided, however, if Landlord shall re-let the Premises during such period, that Landlord shall credit Tenant with the net rents received by Landlord from such re-letting, such net rents to be determined by first deducting from the gross rents as and when received by Landlord from such re-letting the expenses incurred or paid by Landlord in terminating this Lease, as well as the expenses of re-letting, including altering and preparing the Premises for new tenants, brokers' commissions, and all other similar and dissimilar expenses properly chargeable against the Premises and the rental therefrom, it being understood that any such re-letting may be for a period equal to or shorter or longer than the remaining term of this Lease; and provided, further, that (i) in no event shall Tenant be entitled to receive any excess of such net rents over the sums payable by Tenant to Landlord hereunder and (ii) in no event shall Tenant be entitled in any suit for the collection of damages pursuant to this Subparagraph (y) to a credit in respect of any net rents from a re-letting except to the extent that such net rents are -56- 65 actually received by Landlord prior to the commencement of such suit. If the Premises or any part thereof should be re-let in combination with other space, then proper apportionment on a square foot area basis shall be made of the rent received from such re-letting and of the expenses of re-letting. In calculating the rent and other charges under Subparagraph (x), above, there shall be included, in addition to the Yearly Rent, Tax Excess and Operating Expense Excess and all other considerations agreed to be paid or performed by Tenant, on the assumption that all such amounts and considerations would have remained constant (except as herein otherwise provided) for the balance of the full term hereby granted. Suit or suits for the recovery of such damages, or any installments thereof, may be brought by Landlord from time to time at its election, and nothing contained herein shall be deemed to require Landlord to postpone suit until the date when the term of this Lease would have expired if it had not been terminated hereunder. Nothing herein contained shall be construed as limiting or precluding the recovery by Landlord against Tenant of any sums or damages to which, in addition to the damages particularly provided above, Landlord may lawfully be entitled by reason of any default hereunder on the part of Tenant. 21.4 FEES AND EXPENSES. (a) If Tenant shall default in the performance of any covenant on Tenant's part to be performed as in this Lease contained, Landlord may, upon reasonable advance notice, except that no notice shall be required in an emergency, immediately, or at any time thereafter, without notice, perform the same for the account of Tenant. If Landlord at any time is compelled to pay or elects to pay any sum of money, or do any act which will require the payment of any sum of money, by reason of the failure of Tenant to comply with any provision hereof, or if Landlord is compelled to or does incur any expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees, in instituting, prosecuting, and/or defending any action or proceeding instituted by reason of any default of Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall on demand pay to Landlord by way of reimbursement the sum or sums so paid by Landlord with all costs and damages, plus interest computed as provided in Article 6 hereof. (b) Tenant shall pay Landlord's cost and expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred (i) in enforcing any obligation of Tenant under this Lease or (ii) as a result of Landlord, without its fault, being made party to any litigation pending by or against Tenant or any persons claiming through or under Tenant. Tenant shall not be obligated to make any payment to Landlord of any attorneys' fees incurred by Landlord unless judgment is entered (final, and beyond appeal) in favor of Landlord in the lawsuit relating to such fees. Landlord shall pay, upon demand by Tenant, reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by Tenant in connection with any lawsuit between Landlord and Tenant where judgment is entered (final, and beyond appeal) in favor of Tenant. 21.5 WAIVER OF REDEMPTION. Tenant does hereby waive and surrender all rights and privileges which it might have under or by reason of any present or future law to redeem the Premises or to have a continuance of this Lease for the term hereby demised after being -57- 66 dispossessed or ejected therefrom by process of law or under the terms of this Lease or after the termination of this Lease as herein provided. 21.6 LANDLORD'S REMEDIES NOT EXCLUSIVE. The specified remedies to which Landlord may resort hereunder are cumulative and are not intended to be exclusive of any remedies or means of redress to which Landlord may at any time be lawfully entitled, and Landlord may invoke any remedy (including the remedy of specific performance) allowed at law or in equity as if specific remedies were not herein provided for. 21.7 GRACE PERIOD. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article contained, Landlord agrees not to take any action to terminate this Lease (a) for default by Tenant in the payment when due of any sum of money, if Tenant shall cure such default within five (5) business days after written notice thereof is given by Landlord to Tenant, or (b) for default by Tenant in the performance of any covenant other than a covenant to pay a sum of money, if Tenant shall cure such default within a period of thirty (30) days after written notice thereof given by Landlord to Tenant (except where the nature of the default is such that remedial action should appropriately take place sooner, as indicated in such written notice), or within such additional period as may reasonably be required to cure such default if (because of governmental restrictions or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of Tenant) the default is of such a nature that it cannot reasonably be cured within such thirty-(30)-day period, provided, however, (1) that there shall be no extension of time beyond such thirty-(30)-day period for the curing of any such default unless, not more than ten (10) days after the receipt of the notice of default, Tenant in writing (i) shall specify the cause on account of which the default cannot be cured during such period and shall advise Landlord of its intention duly to institute all steps necessary to cure the default and (ii) shall, as soon as reasonably practicable, duly institute and thereafter diligently prosecute to completion all steps necessary to cure such default and, (2) that no notice of the opportunity to cure a default need be given, and no grace period whatsoever shall be allowed to Tenant, if the default is incurable or if the covenant or condition the breach of which gave rise to default had, by reason of a breach on two (2) prior occasions within the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period, been the subject of a notice hereunder to cure such default. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article 21.7 contained, except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, any statutory notice and grace periods provided to Tenant by law are hereby expressly waived by Tenant. 22. END OF TERM - ABANDONED PROPERTY Upon the expiration or other termination of the term of this Lease, Tenant shall peaceably quit and surrender to Landlord the Premises and all alterations and additions thereto, broom clean, in good order, repair and condition (except as provided herein and in Articles 8.7, 18 and 20) excepting only ordinary wear and use and damage by fire or other casualty for which, under other provisions of this Lease, Tenant has no responsibility of repair or restoration. Tenant shall remove all of its property and, to the extent specified by Landlord, all alterations and additions made by Tenant and all partitions wholly within the Premises, and shall repair any damages to the Premises or the Building caused by their installation or by such removal. Tenant's obligation to observe or perform this covenant shall survive the expiration or other termination of the term of this Lease. -58- 67 Tenant will remove any personal property from the Building and the Premises upon or prior to the expiration or termination of this Lease and any such property which shall remain in the Building or the Premises thereafter shall be conclusively deemed to have been abandoned, and may either be retained by Landlord as its property or sold or otherwise disposed of in such manner as Landlord may see fit. If any part thereof shall be sold, that Landlord may receive and retain the proceeds of such sale and apply the same, at its option, against the expenses of the sale, the cost of moving and storage, any arrears of Yearly Rent, additional or other charges payable hereunder by Tenant to Landlord and any damages to which Landlord may be entitled under Article 21 hereof or pursuant to law. If Tenant or anyone claiming under Tenant shall remain in possession of the Premises or any part thereof after the expiration or prior termination of the term of this Lease without any agreement in writing between Landlord and Tenant with respect thereto, then, prior to the acceptance of any payments for rent or use and occupancy by Landlord, the person remaining in possession shall be deemed a tenant-at-sufferance. Whereas the parties hereby acknowledge that Landlord may need the Premises after the expiration or prior termination of the term of the Lease for other tenants and that the damages which Landlord may suffer as the result of Tenant's holding-over cannot be determined as of the Execution Date hereof, in the event that Tenant so holds over, Tenant shall pay to Landlord in addition to all rental and other charges due and accrued under the Lease prior to the date of termination, charges (based upon fair market rental value of the Premises) for use and occupation of the Premises thereafter and, in addition to such sums and any and all other rights and remedies which Landlord may have at law or in equity, an additional use and occupancy charge in the amount of fifty percent (50%) of either the Yearly Rent and other charges calculated (on a daily basis) at the highest rate payable under the terms of this Lease, but measured from the day on which Tenant's hold-over commenced and terminating on the day on which Tenant vacates the Premises or the fair market value of the Premises for such period, whichever is greater. In addition, Tenant shall save Landlord, its agents and employees, harmless and will exonerate, defend and indemnify Landlord, its agents and employees, from and against any and all damages which Landlord may suffer on account of Tenant's hold-over in the Premises after the expiration or prior termination of the term of the Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be liable for consequential damages incurred by Landlord based upon any holdover by Tenant after the expiration or prior termination of the term of the Lease unless such holdover continues for sixty (60) or more days after the termination of this Lease or Tenant's right to possession. 23. SUBORDINATION (a) Subject to any mortgagee's or ground lessor's election, as hereinafter provided for, this Lease is subject and subordinate in all respects to all matters of record (including, without limitation, deeds and land disposition agreements), ground leases and/or underlying leases, and all mortgages, any of which may now or hereafter be placed on or affect such leases and/or the real property of which the Premises are a part, or any part of such real property, and/or Landlord's interest or estate therein, and to each advance made and/or hereafter to be made under any such mortgages, and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof and all substitutions therefor. This Article 23 shall be self-operative and no further instrument or subordination shall be required. In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver promptly any certificate or instrument that Landlord and/or any mortgagee and/or lessor under any ground or underlying lease and/or their respective successors in interest may request, subject to Landlord's, mortgagee's and ground -59- 68 lessor's right to do so for, on behalf and in the name of Tenant under certain circumstances, as hereinafter provided. Tenant acknowledges that, where applicable, any consent or approval hereafter given by Landlord may be subject to the further consent or approval of such mortgagee and/or ground lessor; and the failure or refusal of such mortgagee and/or ground lessor to give such consent or approval shall, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease contained, constitute reasonable justification for Landlord's withholding its consent or approval. Landlord hereby represents to Tenant that, as of the Execution Date of this Lease, there is no mortgage affecting the Premises or the Building. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article 23 contained, as to any future mortgages, ground leases, and/or underlying lease or deeds of trust, the herein provided subordination and attornment shall be effective only if the mortgagee, ground lessor or trustee therein, as the case may be, agrees, by a written instrument in recordable form and in the customary form of such mortgagee, ground lessor, or trustee ("Nondisturbance Agreement") that, as long as Tenant shall not be in terminable default of the obligations on its part to be kept and performed under the terms of this Lease, this Lease will not be affected and Tenant's possession hereunder will not be disturbed by any default in, termination, and/or foreclosure of, such mortgage, ground lease, and/or underlying lease or deed of trust, as the case may be. (b) Any such mortgagee or ground lessor may from time to time subordinate or revoke any such subordination of the mortgage or ground lease held by it to this Lease. Such subordination or revocation, as the case may be, shall be effected by written notice to Tenant and by recording an instrument of subordination or of such revocation, as the case may be, with the appropriate registry of deeds or land records and to be effective without any further act or deed on the part of Tenant. In confirmation of such subordination or of such revocation, as the case may be, Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and promptly deliver any certificate or instrument that Landlord, any mortgagee or ground lessor may request, subject to Landlord's, mortgagee's and ground lessor's right to do so for, on behalf and in the name of Tenant under certain circumstances, as hereinafter provided. (c) Without limitation of any of the provisions of this Lease, if any ground lessor or mortgagee shall succeed to the interest of Landlord by reason of the exercise of its rights under such ground lease or mortgage (or the acceptance of voluntary conveyance in lieu thereof) or any third party (including, without limitation, any foreclosure purchaser or mortgage receiver) shall succeed to such interest by reason of any such exercise or the expiration or sooner termination of such ground lease, however caused, then such successor may, upon notice and request to Tenant (which, in the case of a ground lease, shall be within thirty (30) days after such expiration or sooner termination), succeed to the interest of Landlord under this Lease, provided, however, that such successor shall not: (i) be liable for any previous act or omission of Landlord under this Lease; (ii) be subject to any offset, defense, or counterclaim which shall theretofore have accrued to Tenant against Landlord; (iii) have any obligation with respect to any letter of credit unless it shall have been physically delivered to such successor; or (iv) be bound by any previous modification of this Lease or by any previous payment of Yearly Rent for a period greater than one (1) month, made without such ground lessor's or mortgagee's consent where such consent is required by applicable ground lease or mortgage documents. In the event of such succession to the interest of the Landlord -- and notwithstanding that any such mortgage or ground lease may antedate this Lease -- the Tenant shall attorn to such successor and shall ipso facto be and become bound directly to such successor in interest to Landlord to perform and observe all the Tenant's obligations under this Lease without the necessity of the execution of any further instrument. Nevertheless, Tenant agrees at any time and from time to time during the term -60- 69 hereof to execute a suitable instrument in confirmation of Tenant's agreement to attorn, as aforesaid, subject to Landlord's, mortgagee's and ground lessor's right to do so for, on behalf and in the name of Tenant under certain circumstances, as hereinafter provided. (d) The term "mortgage(s)" as used in this Lease shall include any mortgage or deed of trust. The term "mortgagee(s)" as used in this Lease shall include any mortgagee or any trustee and beneficiary under a deed of trust or receiver appointed under a mortgage or deed of trust. The term "mortgagor(s)" as used in this Lease shall include any mortgagor or any grantor under a deed of trust. (e) Tenant hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Landlord or any such mortgagee or ground lessor, and their respective successors in interest, acting singly, Tenant's attorney-in-fact to execute and deliver any such certificate or instrument for, on behalf and in the name of Tenant, but only if Tenant fails to execute, acknowledge and deliver any such certificate or instrument within twenty (20) days after Landlord or such mortgagee or such ground lessor has made written request therefor. (f) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 23, if all or part of Landlord's estate and interest in the real property of which the Premises are a part shall be a leasehold estate held under a ground lease, then: (i) the foregoing subordination provisions of this Article 23 shall not apply to any mortgages of the fee interest in said real property to which Landlord's leasehold estate is not otherwise subject and subordinate; and (ii) the provisions of this Article 23 shall in no way waive, abrogate or otherwise affect any agreement by any ground lessor (x) not to terminate this Lease incident to any termination of such ground lease prior to its term expiring or (y) not to name or join Tenant in any action or proceeding by such ground lessor to recover possession of such real property or for any other relief. As of the Execution Date of this Lease, there is no ground lease of the Building or the real property of which the Building is a part. (g) In the event of any failure by Landlord to perform, fulfill or observe any agreement by Landlord herein, in no event will the Landlord be deemed to be in default under this Lease permitting Tenant to exercise any or all rights or remedies under this Lease until the Tenant shall have given written notice of such failure to any mortgagee (ground lessor and/or trustee) of which Tenant shall have been advised and until a reasonable period of time shall have elapsed following the giving of such notice, during which such mortgagee (ground lessor and/or trustee) shall have the right, but shall not be obligated, to remedy such failure. 24. QUIET ENJOYMENT Landlord covenants that if, and so long as, Tenant keeps and performs each and every covenant, agreement, term, provision and condition herein contained on the part and on behalf of Tenant to be kept and performed, Tenant shall quietly enjoy the Premises from and against the claims of all persons claiming by, through or under Landlord subject, nevertheless, to the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease and to the mortgages, ground leases and/or underlying leases to which this Lease is subject and subordinate, as hereinabove set forth. Without incurring any liability to Tenant, Landlord may permit access to the Premises and open the same, whether or not Tenant shall be present, upon any demand of any receiver, -61- 70 trustee, assignee for the benefit of creditors, sheriff, marshal or court officer entitled to, or reasonably purporting to be entitled to, such access for the purpose of taking possession of, or removing, Tenant's property or for any other lawful purpose (but this provision and any action by Landlord hereunder shall not be deemed a recognition by Landlord that the person or official making such demand has any right or interest in or to this Lease, or in or to the Premises), or upon demand of any representative of the fire, police, building, sanitation or other department of the city, state or federal governments. 25. ENTIRE AGREEMENT -- WAIVER -- SURRENDER 25.1 ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Lease and the Exhibits made a part hereof contain the entire and only agreement between the parties and any and all statements and representations, written and oral, including previous correspondence and agreements between the parties hereto, are merged herein. Tenant acknowledges that all representations and statements upon which it relied in executing this Lease are contained herein and that the Tenant in no way relied upon any other statements or representations, written or oral. Any executory agreement hereafter made shall be ineffective to change, modify, discharge or effect an abandonment of this Lease in whole or in part unless such executory agreement is in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement of the change, modification, discharge or abandonment is sought. 25.2 WAIVER. The failure of either party to seek redress for violation, or to insist upon the strict performance, of any covenant or condition of this Lease, or any of the Rules and Regulations promulgated hereunder, shall not prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having all the force and effect of an original violation. The receipt by Landlord of rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach. The failure of Landlord to enforce any of such Rules and Regulations against Tenant and/or any other tenant in the Building shall not be deemed a waiver of any such Rules and Regulations. No provisions of this Lease shall be deemed to have been waived by either party unless such waiver be in writing signed by such party. No payment by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than the monthly rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on account of the stipulated rent, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as rent be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord's right to recover the balance of such rent or pursue any other remedy in this Lease provided. 25.3 SURRENDER. No act or thing done by Landlord during the term hereby demised shall be deemed an acceptance of a surrender of the Premises, and no agreement to accept such surrender shall be valid, unless in writing signed by Landlord. No employee of Landlord or of Landlord's agents shall have any power to accept the keys of the Premises prior to the termination of this Lease. The delivery of keys to any employee of Landlord or of Landlord's agents shall not operate as a termination of the Lease or a surrender of the Premises. In the event that Tenant at any time desires to have Landlord underlet the Premises for Tenant's account, Landlord or Landlord's agents are authorized to receive the keys for such purposes without releasing Tenant from any of the obligations under this Lease, and Tenant hereby relieves Landlord of any liability for loss of or damage to any of Tenant's effects in connection with such underletting. -62- 71 26. INABILITY TO PERFORM - EXCULPATORY CLAUSE Except as provided in Article 4.1, 4.2, 8.8, 18 and 20 hereof, this Lease and the obligations of Tenant to pay rent hereunder and perform all the other covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions hereunder on the part of Tenant to be performed shall in no way be affected, impaired or excused because Landlord is unable to fulfill any of its obligations under this Lease or is unable to supply or is delayed in supplying any service expressly or impliedly to be supplied or is unable to make or is delayed in making any repairs, replacements, additions, alterations, improvements or decorations or is unable to supply or is delayed in supplying any equipment or fixtures if Landlord is prevented or delayed from so doing by reason of strikes or labor troubles or any other similar or dissimilar cause whatsoever beyond Landlord's reasonable control, including but not limited to, governmental preemption in connection with a national emergency or by reason of any rule, order or regulation of any department or subdivision thereof of any governmental agency or by reason of the conditions of supply and demand which have been or are affected by war, hostilities or other similar or dissimilar emergency. In each such instance of inability of Landlord to perform, Landlord shall exercise reasonable diligence to eliminate the cause of such inability to perform. Tenant shall neither assert nor seek to enforce any claim against Landlord, or Landlord's agents or employees, or the assets of Landlord or of Landlord's agents or employees, for breach of this Lease or otherwise, other than against Landlord's interest in the Building of which the Premises are a part and the Complex and in the uncollected rents, issues and profits thereof, and Tenant agrees to look solely to such interest for the satisfaction of any liability of Landlord under this Lease, it being specifically agreed that in no event shall Landlord or Landlord's agents or employees (or any of the officers, trustees, directors, partners, beneficiaries, joint venturers, members, stockholders or other principals or representatives, and the like, disclosed or undisclosed, thereof) ever be personally liable for any such liability. This paragraph shall not limit any right that Tenant might otherwise have to obtain injunctive relief against Landlord or to take any other action which shall not involve the personal liability of Landlord to respond in monetary damages from Landlord's assets other than the Landlord's interest in said real estate, as aforesaid. In no event shall Landlord or Landlord's agents or employees (or any of the officers, trustees, directors, partners, beneficiaries, joint venturers, members, stockholders or other principals or representatives and the like, disclosed or undisclosed, thereof) ever be liable for consequential or incidental damages. Without limiting the foregoing, in no event shall Landlord or Landlord's agents or employees (or any of the officers, trustees, directors, partners, beneficiaries, joint venturers, members, stockholders or other principals or representatives and the like, disclosed or undisclosed, thereof) ever be liable for lost profits of Tenant. If by reason of Landlord's failure to acquire title to the real property of which the Premises are a part or to complete construction of the Building or Premises, Landlord shall be held to be in breach of this Lease, Tenant's sole and exclusive remedy shall be as set forth in Article 4 hereof. 27. BILLS AND NOTICES Any notice, consent, request, bill, demand or statement hereunder by either party to the other party shall be in writing and, if received at Landlord's or Tenant's address, shall be deemed to have been duly given when either delivered or served personally or mailed in a postpaid envelope, deposited in the United States mail addressed to Landlord at its address as stated in Exhibit 1 and to Tenant at the Premises (or at Tenant's address as stated in Exhibit 1, if mailed prior to Tenant's occupancy of the Premises), or if any address for notices shall have been duly -63- 72 changed as hereinafter provided, if mailed as aforesaid to the party at such changed address. Either party may at any time change the address or specify an additional address for such notices, consents, requests, bills, demands or statements by delivering or mailing, as aforesaid, to the other party a notice stating the change and setting forth the changed or additional address, provided such changed or additional address is within the United States. If Tenant is a partnership, Tenant, for itself, and on behalf of all of its partners, hereby appoints Tenant's Service Partner, as identified on Exhibit 1, to accept service of any notice, consent, request, bill, demand or statement hereunder by Landlord and any service of process in any judicial proceeding with respect to this Lease on behalf of Tenant and as agent and attorney-in-fact for each partner of Tenant. All bills and statements for reimbursement or other payments or charges due from Tenant to Landlord hereunder shall be due and payable in full twenty (20) days, unless herein otherwise provided, after submission thereof by Landlord to Tenant. Tenant's failure to make timely payment of any amounts indicated by such bills and statements, whether for work done by Landlord at Tenant's request, reimbursement provided for by this Lease or for any other sums properly owing by Tenant to Landlord, shall be treated as a default in the payment of rent, in which event Landlord shall have all rights and remedies provided in this Lease for the nonpayment of rent. 28. PARTIES BOUND -- SEIZIN OF TITLE The covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease shall bind and benefit the successors and assigns of the parties hereto with the same effect as if mentioned in each instance where a party hereto is named or referred to, except that no violation of the provisions of Article 16 hereof shall operate to vest any rights in any successor or assignee of Tenant and that the provisions of this Article 28 shall not be construed as modifying the conditions of limitation contained in Article 21 hereof. If, in connection with or as a consequence of the sale, transfer or other disposition of the real estate (land and/or Building, either or both, as the case may be) of which the Premises are a part, Landlord ceases to be the owner of the reversionary interest in the Premises, Landlord shall be entirely freed and relieved from the performance and observance thereafter of all covenants and obligations hereunder on the part of Landlord to be performed and observed, it being understood and agreed in such event (and it shall be deemed and construed as a covenant running with the land) that the person succeeding to Landlord's ownership of said reversionary interest shall thereupon and thereafter assume, and perform and observe, any and all of such covenants and obligations of Landlord. 29. MISCELLANEOUS 29.1 SEPARABILITY. If any provision of this Lease or portion of such provision or the application thereof to any person or circumstance is for any reason held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of the Lease (or the remainder of such provision) and the application thereof to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby. 29.2 CAPTIONS, ETC. The captions are inserted only as a matter of convenience and for reference, and in no way define, limit or describe the scope of this Lease nor the intent of any -64- 73 provisions thereof. References to "State" shall mean, where appropriate, the District of Columbia and other Federal territories, possessions, as well as a state of the United States. 29.3 BROKER. Tenant represents and warrants that it has not directly or indirectly dealt, with respect to the leasing of office space in the Building or any Center, Office Park or other Park of which it is a part (called "Building, etc." in this Article 29.3) with any broker or had its attention called to the Premises or other space to let in the Building, etc. by anyone other than the broker, person or firm, if any, designated in Exhibit 1. Tenant agrees to defend, exonerate and save harmless and indemnify Landlord and anyone claiming by, through or under Landlord against any claims arising in breach of the representation and warranty set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, provided that Landlord shall be solely responsible for the payment of brokerage commissions to the brokers, persons or firms, if any, designated in Exhibit 1. Landlord represents and warrants that, in connection with the execution and delivery of the Lease, it has not directly or indirectly dealt with any broker other than the brokers designated on Exhibit 1. Landlord agrees to defend, exonerate and save harmless Tenant and anyone claiming by, through, or under Tenant against any claims arising in breach of the representation and warranty set forth in the immediately preceding sentence. 29.4 MODIFICATIONS. If in connection with obtaining financing for the Building, a bank, insurance company, pension trust or other institutional lender shall request reasonable modifications in this Lease as a condition to such financing, Tenant will not withhold, delay or condition its consent thereto, provided that such modifications do not increase the obligations of Tenant hereunder or adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created. 29.5 ARBITRATION. Any disputes relating to provisions or obligations in this Lease as to which a specific provision for a reference to arbitration is made herein shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance with the provisions of applicable state law (as identified on Exhibit 1), as from time to time amended. Except as specifically otherwise provided below, arbitration proceedings, including the selection of an arbitrator, shall be conducted pursuant to the rules, regulations and procedures from time to time in effect as promulgated by the American Arbitration Association. Prior written notice of application by either party for arbitration shall be given to the other at least ten (10) days before submission of the application to the said Association's office in the City wherein the Building is situated (or the nearest other city having an Association office). The arbitrator shall hear the parties and their evidence. The decision of the arbitrator shall be binding and conclusive, and judgment upon the award or decision of the arbitrator may be entered in the appropriate court of law (as identified on Exhibit 1); and the parties consent to the jurisdiction of such court and further agree that any process or notice of motion or other application to the Court or a Judge thereof may be served outside the State wherein the Building is situated by registered mail or by personal service, provided a reasonable time for appearance is allowed. The costs and expenses of each arbitration hereunder and their apportionment between the parties shall be determined by the arbitrator in his award or decision. No arbitrable dispute shall be deemed to have arisen under this Lease prior to (i) the expiration of the period of twenty (20) days after the date of the giving of written notice by the party asserting the existence of the dispute together with a description thereof sufficient for an understanding thereof; and (ii) where a Tenant payment (e.g., Tax Excess or Operating Expense Excess under Article 9 hereof) is in issue, the amount billed by Landlord which is not disputed by Tenant in good faith having been paid by Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereby agree that (i) except as set forth in (ii) below, the arbitrator for any disputes relating to Article 4 of this Lease shall be the "Initial Arbitrator", or the "Alternate Arbitrator" if the Initial -65- 74 Arbitrator is not available, and (ii) the arbitrators for any disputes relating to the Certificate of Occupancy Test, as set forth in Article 4.0(l) of this Lease, shall be a panel of three (the "Initial Three Arbitrators"), consisting of the Initial Arbitrator, with the Alternate Arbitrator serving as a substitute if the Initial Arbitrator is not available, plus the "Landlord's Arbitrator" and the "Tenant's Arbitrator", with the "Landlord's Alternate Arbitrator" and/or the "Tenant's Alternate Arbitrator" serving as a substitute if the Landlord's Arbitrator or the Tenant's Arbitrator, as the case may be, is not available. All of such individuals shall be chosen as follows: Within seven (7) days after the date hereof, Landlord and Tenant shall each designate one arbitrator and one alternate arbitrator, to be known as Landlord's Arbitrator, Landlord's Alternate Arbitrator, Tenant's Arbitrator and Tenant's Alternate Arbitrator, respectively. Landlord's Arbitrator and Tenant's Arbitrator shall, within thirty (30) days after the date hereof, designate two individuals to serve as the Initial Arbitrator and the Alternate Arbitrator, respectively. Any decision to be made by the Initial Three Arbitrators shall be made as follows: Landlord's Arbitrator and Tenant's Arbitrator (or the Alternate Arbitrator sitting in his/her stead) shall each render a decision on the matter, and the Initial Arbitrator (or the Alternate Arbitrator sitting in his/her stead) shall choose which of the decisions made by the Landlord's Arbitrator or Tenant's Arbitrator is correct, and such decision shall then be binding on the parties. 29.6 GOVERNING LAW. This Lease is made pursuant to, and shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State wherein the Building is situated and any applicable local municipal rules, regulations, by-laws, ordinances and the like. 29.7 ASSIGNMENT OF RENTS. With reference to any assignment by Landlord of its interest in this Lease, or the rents payable hereunder, conditional in nature or otherwise, which assignment is made to or held by a bank, trust company, insurance company or other institutional lender holding a mortgage or ground lease on the Building, Tenant agrees: (a) that the execution thereof by Landlord and the acceptance thereof by such mortgagee and/or ground lessor shall never be deemed an assumption by such mortgagee and/or ground lessor of any of the obligations of the Landlord thereunder, unless such mortgagee and/or ground lessor shall, by written notice sent to the Tenant, specifically otherwise elect; and (b) that, except as aforesaid, such mortgagee and/or ground lessor shall be treated as having assumed the Landlord's obligations thereunder only upon foreclosure of such mortgagee's mortgage or deed of trust or termination of such ground lessor's ground lease and the taking of possession of the demised Premises after having given notice of its exercise of the option stated in Article 23 hereof to succeed to the interest of the Landlord under this Lease. 29.8 REPRESENTATION OF AUTHORITY. By his execution hereof each of the signatories on behalf of the respective parties hereby warrants and represents to the other that he is duly authorized to execute this Lease on behalf of such party. If Tenant is a corporation, Tenant hereby appoints the signatory whose name appears below on behalf of Tenant as Tenant's attorney-in-fact for the purpose of executing this Lease for and on behalf of Tenant. 29.9 EXPENSES INCURRED BY LANDLORD UPON TENANT REQUESTS. Tenant shall, upon demand, reimburse Landlord for all reasonable expenses, including, without limitation, legal fees, incurred by Landlord in connection with all requests by Tenant for consents, approvals or execution of collateral documentation related to this Lease, including, without limitation, costs incurred by Landlord in the review and approval of Tenant's plans and specifications in -66- 75 connection with proposed alterations to be made by Tenant to the Premises, requests by Tenant to sublet the Premises or assign its interest in the Lease, the execution by Landlord of estoppel certificates requested by Tenant (except that there shall be no charge for the first such estoppel certificate requested by Tenant in any calendar year), and requests by Tenant for Landlord to execute waivers of Landlord's interest in Tenant's property in connection with third party financing by Tenant. Such costs shall be deemed to be additional rent under the Lease. 29.10 RETAIL AREA. Landlord agrees that retail uses in the Building will be consistent with the types of retail uses in other office buildings of comparable quality in the metropolitan Boston area, and that no construction activity for retail uses will be allowed in the Building lobby except to the extent that such construction activity relates to a door into the lobby from such retail area and cannot reasonably be performed outside the Building lobby, and then only if separated from the Building lobby by a painted construction barrier. So long as Akamai Technologies, Inc., itself, or an Assignee or Affiliated Entity (as those terms are defined in Article 16) collectively are occupying at least seventy percent (70%) of the Premises then demised to Tenant, Landlord agrees that any door into the lobby from such retail area shall be used for emergency egress only, except that, as shown on Lease Plan, Exhibit 2, Sheet 1, the retail premises located on the first floor of the Building shall have access to the common bathrooms on the first floor through the doors shown on Lease Plan, Exhibit 2, Sheet 1. Reaccess to the lobby from such bathrooms shall be controlled by Tenant's security system, subject to emergency access as required by law. 29.11 SURVIVAL. Without limiting any other obligation of the Tenant which may survive the expiration or prior termination of the term of the Lease, all obligations on the part of Tenant to indemnify, defend, or hold Landlord harmless, as set forth in this Lease (including, without limitation, Tenant's obligations under Articles 13(d), 15.3, and 29.3) shall survive the expiration or prior termination of the term of the Lease. -67- 76 IN WITNESS WHEREOF the parties hereto have executed this Indenture of Lease in multiple copies, each to be considered an original hereof, as a sealed instrument on the day and year noted in Exhibit 1 as the Execution Date.

LETTERS OF CREDIT A. DELIVERY OF LETTERS OF CREDIT. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, on the date that Tenant executes and delivers the Lease to Landlord, an Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit ("Initial Letter of Credit") which shall be (1) in the form attached hereto as Exhibit 5, (2) issued by a bank reasonably acceptable to Landlord upon which presentment may be made in Boston, Massachusetts, (3) in the Letter of Credit Amount, as hereinafter defined, and (4) for a term of one (1) year, subject to extension in accordance with the terms of the Letter of Credit. The Letter of Credit Amount shall initially be $5,114,070.00. In addition, Tenant shall, on the Term Commencement Date, deliver to Landlord either: (i) an amendment to the Initial Letter of Credit, in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord, increasing the Letter of Credit Amount from $5,114,070.00 to $10,228,140.00 ("Letter of Credit Amendment"), or (ii) a second Letter of Credit conforming to the requirements of this Subparagraph A ("Second Letter of Credit"), in the amount of $5,114,070.00. Tenant's failure to deliver either the Letter of Credit Amendment or the Second Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be a default by Tenant in its obligations under the Lease with the same notice and cure period as would be applicable as if such failure were a failure to pay Yearly Rent when due under the Lease. If Tenant elects to provide a Second Letter of Credit in lieu of a Letter of Credit Amendment, then the Initial Letter of Credit and the Second Letter of Credit shall be collectively referred to herein as the "Letter of Credit" and the Letter of Credit Amount shall be defined as the sum of the amounts of Initial Letter of Credit and the Second Letter of Credit. The Letter of Credit shall be subject to reduction as set forth below. Tenant shall, on or before the date thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the term of the Letter of Credit, deliver to Landlord a new Letter of Credit satisfying the foregoing conditions ("Substitute Letter of Credit") in lieu of the Letter of Credit then being held by Landlord. Such Letter of Credit shall be automatically renewable in accordance with the second to last grammatical paragraph of Exhibit 5; provided that, in such event, Tenant shall be required to deliver a Substitute Letter of Credit satisfying the conditions hereof, on or before the date thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the term of such Letter of Credit, if the issuer of such Letter of Credit gives notice of its election not to renew such Letter of Credit for any additional period pursuant thereto. Upon written request of Tenant, Landlord shall deliver to the issuing bank an instruction authorizing the issuing bank to reduce the Letter of Credit Amount in accordance with the schedule set forth herein. B. RENT RESTRUCTURING EVENT. A "Rent Restructuring Event" shall be defined as : 1. Any monetary default or material non-monetary default by Tenant in its obligations under the Lease which is not cured after the giving of any applicable notice and the expiration of any applicable grace periods ("Event of Default"); or 2. If, at any time, both of the following conditions occur: (i) the price per share for Tenant's common stock as traded on a nationally-recognized exchange and calculated on the basis of a thirty (30) day trailing average and adjusted for any stock splits, reverse -80- 89 stock splits or mergers from and after the Execution Date, is less than $20.00 (a "Low Stock Price Event"), and (ii) Tenant does not, within ten (10) days after notice from Landlord that Landlord claims that such Low Stock Price Event constitutes a Rent Restructuring Event, provide Landlord with a certification from Tenant's Chief Financial Officer, or from the independent certified public accountant that prepared Tenant's most recent financial statement in accordance with Subparagraph J hereof, or from another independent certified public accountant reasonably acceptable to Landlord, that, as of the date of Landlord's notice, the aggregate amount of cash, cash equivalents, and short term investments held by Tenant and which is free and clear of any liens or encumbrances is equal to or greater than $50,000,000.00. C. EFFECT OF RENT RESTRUCTURING EVENT. If any Rent Restructuring Event occurs, then: 1. If the Rent Restructuring Event is an Event of Default, Landlord may, at its election, (a) exercise its rights under Paragraph 1.K of this Rider to draw down the Default Draw Amount, and/or in addition thereto, (b) Landlord may, in its sole discretion, draw (i) the balance of the Letter of Credit or (ii) fifty percent (50%) of the balance of the Letter of Credit and apply such amount as a payment of Yearly Rent under the Lease; or 2. If the Rent Restructuring Event is not an Event of Default, Landlord may, at its election and in its sole discretion, draw (i) the entire Letter of Credit or (ii) fifty percent (50%) of the Letter of Credit, and apply such amount as a payment of Yearly Rent under the Lease; and 3. Upon the application of any payment pursuant to Clauses 1 or 2 above (each of which is referred to herein as a "Restructuring Rent Payment"), then the amount of monthly payments of Yearly Rent payable by Tenant thereafter under the Lease shall be reduced by an amount equal to the Monthly Rent Reduction Amount, as hereinafter defined; and 4. Except as set forth in Clause 6 of this Paragraph C, in no event shall Landlord draw down the Letter of Credit (either in whole or in part) and apply the proceeds as a Restructuring Rent Payment more than once during the term hereof. Landlord's election to draw down the Letter of Credit (either in whole or in part) and apply the proceeds as a Restructuring Rent Payment must be made within ninety (90) days following the Rent Restructuring Event in question (or, in the case of a Rent Restructuring Event that continues over a period of time, within ninety (90) days following the last day thereof); and 5. Landlord's right to draw down the Letter of Credit, either in whole or in part, and apply the proceeds as a Restructuring Rent Payment, shall expire upon the occurrence of both of the following events: (a) At least two (2) years shall have passed since Tenant has provided Landlord with the Initial Letter of Credit, and -81- 90 (b) Tenant's Cash Flow (as defined in Subparagraph H below), aggregated over four (4) consecutive fiscal quarters (beginning not sooner than the quarter containing the first anniversary of the date Tenant provides Landlord with the Initial Letter of Credit), is positive; and 6. If Landlord exercises its right to draw down the Letter of Credit, either in whole or in part, and apply the proceeds as a Restructuring Rent Payment before the Term Commencement Date, when the Letter of Credit Amount is only $5,114,070.00, then when the Letter of Credit Amount is increased to $10,228,140.00 after the Term Commencement Date, Landlord shall draw down the same percentage of the increased Letter of Credit Amount and apply such proceeds as a Restructuring Rent Payment (e.g., if Landlord drew down the fifty (50%) of the Initial Letter of Credit, then Landlord shall draw down the fifty (50%) percent of Second Letter of Credit, or of the increased amount in the Initial Letter of Credit, as affected by the Letter of Credit Amendment, as the case may be); and 7. Landlord shall have no obligation to draw down the Letter of Credit if a Rent Restructuring Event occurs; and 8. If a Rent Restructuring Event occurs but Landlord does not exercise its right to draw upon the Letter of Credit based upon such Rent Restructuring Event, Landlord shall, if the same or a different Rent Restructuring Event occurs, have the right to draw upon the Letter of Credit to make a Restructuring Rent Payment as if the first such Rent Restructuring Event had not previously occurred; and 9. If a Rent Restructuring Event occurs and Landlord elects to draw upon the Letter of Credit to make a Rent Restructuring Payment, then (except as provided in Clause 6 of this Subparagraph C) Landlord shall have no further right to draw upon the Letter of Credit to make a subsequent Rent Restructuring Payment; provided however, that the provisions of this Clause 9 shall not affect Landlord from drawing upon the Letter of Credit based upon a subsequent Event of Default for the purposes of paying a Default Draw Amount, as hereinafter defined, or from drawing upon the Letter of Credit pursuant to Subparagraph L of this Paragraph 1, if Tenant fails timely to deliver a Substitute Letter of Credit. D. MONTHLY RENT REDUCTION PAYMENT. The "Monthly Rent Reduction Payment" shall be equal to the amount of the monthly payment of principal and interest which would be necessary to fully pay a loan, in the amount of the Restructuring Rent Payment with interest at the rate of the rate per annum announced by Fleet Bank, N.A., or its successor, from time to time as its "prime" rate, plus one-quarter percent (1/4%), which is repaid on a direct reduction basis in equal monthly payments of principal and interest over a term commencing with the application of the Restructuring Rent Payment and ending as of the expiration of the then-current term of the Lease. E. REDUCTION DATE. "Reduction Date" shall be defined as the second anniversary of the Full Rent Commencement Date, and each anniversary of the Full Rent Commencement Date which occurs thereafter during the term of the Lease. -82- 91 F. REDUCTION CONDITIONS. Tenant shall be deemed to have satisfied the "Reduction Conditions" with respect to any Reduction Date, if, as of such Reduction Date, all of the following are satisfied: 1. Tenant is not in monetary default, or in material non-monetary default, in either case beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, of any of its obligations under the Lease as of such Reduction Date; 2. The Lease is in full force and effect; and 3. Tenant has not been in either monetary default, or in material non-monetary default, in either case beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, on more than one occasion during the immediately preceding twelve (12) months of the term of the Lease. G. REDUCTION AMOUNT. The "Reduction Amount" with respect to any Reduction Date shall be based upon Tenant's Cash Flow, as hereinafter defined, during Tenant's last full twelve month fiscal year immediately preceding the Reduction Date in question, as follows. If Tenant's Cash Flow for the immediately preceding fiscal year is: 1. Not positive, then the Reduction Amount shall be zero; 2. Positive, but less than or equal to $5,000,000.00, then the Reduction Amount shall be $1,000,000.00; or 3. More than $5,000,000.00, but less than or equal to $10,000,000.00, then the Reduction Amount shall be $1,250,000.00; or 4. More than $10,000,000.00, but less than or equal to $15,000,000.00, then the Reduction Amount shall be $1,500,000.00; or 5. More than $15,000,000.00, but less than or equal to $20,000,000.00, then the Reduction Amount shall be $1,750,000.00; or 6. Greater than $20,000,000.00, then the Reduction Amount shall be $2,000,000.00. In no event, however, shall the Letter of Credit Amount ever be reduced below $3,409,380.00. H. DEFINITION OF CASH FLOW. Tenant's Cash Flow for any period shall mean the sum of (i) Tenant's net income attributable to common stock holders, (ii) interest on convertible debt that is accrued but not yet paid or payable, (iii) depreciation and (iv) amortization, all as reflected in the audited financial statements for period in question. Stock compensation amortization may be added as part of the definition of Cash Flow, provided that said adjustment is as reported in the audited financial statements of Tenant for the relevant reporting period. I. EFFECT OF SATISFACTION OF RENT REDUCTION CONDITIONS. If, on any Reduction Date, Tenant satisfies all of the Reduction Conditions, then the Letter of Credit Amount shall be reduced by the applicable Reduction Amount, if any. Such reduction in the Letter of Credit Amount may be effected by an amendment, in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord, to the -83- 92 existing Letter(s) of Credit then being held by Landlord, or by Tenant's delivery to Landlord of a substitute Letter of Credit satisfying all of the requirements of the Letter of Credit to be provided to Tenant except that the Letter of Credit Amount for such substitute Letter of Credit shall be in the appropriately reduced amount. In the latter event, Landlord shall exchange the Letter(s) of Credit then being held by Landlord for such substitute Letter of Credit. J. TENANT'S FINANCIAL STATEMENTS. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord financial statements as and when made publicly available, if Tenant's stock is then publicly traded. If Tenant's stock is not then publicly traded, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord (i) within ninety (90) days following the end of its fiscal year, copies of Tenant's annual financial statements, prepared by an independent certified public accounting firm reasonably acceptable to Landlord and in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord, and (ii) within forty-five (45) days following the end of each of its fiscal quarters, copies of Tenant's quarterly financial statements certified by Tenant's chief financial officer and in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord. All such financial statements shall be prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied. K. EFFECT OF TENANT DEFAULT. In the event that Tenant is in default of its obligations under the Lease, beyond the expiration of applicable notice and grace periods, then the Landlord shall have the right, at any time after such event, without giving any further notice to Tenant, to draw down from said Letter of Credit (Substitute Letter of Credit or Additional Letter of Credit, as defined below, as the case may be) (a) the amount necessary to cure such default or (b) if such default cannot reasonably be cured by the expenditure of money, to exercise all rights and remedies Landlord may have on account of such default, the amount which, in Landlord's opinion, is necessary to satisfy Tenant's liability on account thereof ("Default Draw Amount"). The foregoing shall be in addition to Landlord's other rights to draw down the Letter of Credit (Substitute Letter of Credit or Additional Letter of Credit, as the case may be) pursuant to this Paragraph 1. In the event of any such draw by the Landlord, Tenant shall, within fifteen (15) business days of written demand therefor, deliver to Landlord an additional Letter of Credit satisfying the foregoing conditions ("Additional Letter of Credit"), except that the amount of such Additional Letter of Credit shall be the Default Draw Amount. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, if Landlord draws upon the Letter of Credit to make a Rent Restructuring Payment, in no event shall Tenant have any obligation to provide to Landlord an Additional Letter of Credit in the amount of such Rent Restructuring Payment. In addition, in the event of a termination based upon the default of Tenant under the Lease, or a rejection of the Lease pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Bankruptcy Code, Landlord shall have the right to draw upon the Letter of Credit (from time to time, if necessary) to cover the full amount of damages and other amounts due from Tenant to Landlord under the Lease. Any amounts so drawn shall, at Landlord's election, be applied first to any unpaid rent and other charges which were due prior to the filing of the petition for protection under the Federal Bankruptcy Code. L. EFFECT OF FAILURE TO DELIVER SUBSTITUTE LETTER OF CREDIT. In the event that Tenant fails timely to deliver to Landlord a Substitute Letter of Credit, then the Landlord shall have the right, at any time after such event, without giving any further notice to Tenant and without limiting its other remedies on account thereof, to draw down the Letter of Credit (or Substitute Letter of Credit and/or Additional Letter(s) of Credit) and to hold the proceeds thereof ("Cash Proceeds") in a segregated bank account in the name of the Landlord in accordance with the provisions of this Paragraph 1. -84- 93 M. RETURN OF LETTER OF CREDIT AT END OF TERM. To the extent that Landlord has not previously drawn upon any Letter of Credit, Substitute Letter of Credit, Additional Letter of Credit or Cash Proceeds (collectively "L/C Equivalent") held by the Landlord, and to the extent that Tenant is not otherwise in default of its obligations under the Lease as of the termination date of the Lease, Landlord shall return such L/C Equivalent to Tenant on the termination of the term of the Lease. N. LETTER OF CREDIT NOT A MEASURE OF LIQUIDATED DAMAGES. In no event shall the proceeds of any Letter of Credit be considered as a measure of liquidated damages. 2. TENANT'S OPTION TO EXTEND THE TERM OF THE LEASE A. On the conditions, which conditions Landlord may waive, at its election, by written notice to Tenant at any time, (i) that Tenant is not in default of its covenants and obligations under the Lease, and (ii) that Akamai Technologies, Inc., itself, or an Assignee or Affiliated Entity (as those terms are defined in Article 16) collectively are occupying at least seventy percent (70%) of the Premises then demised to Tenant, both as of the time of option exercise and as of the commencement of the hereinafter described additional term, Tenant shall have the option to extend the term of this Lease for two (2) additional five (5) year terms, each such additional term commencing as of the expiration of the initial term of the Lease or the previous extension term, as the case may be. Tenant may exercise such option to extend by giving Landlord written notice on or before the date fifteen (15) months prior to the expiration date of the initial term of the Lease or the previous extension term, as the case may be. Upon the timely giving of such notice, the term of this Lease shall be deemed extended upon all of the terms and conditions of this Lease, except that Landlord shall have no obligation to construct or renovate the Premises and that the Yearly Rent, Operating Costs in the Base Year, and Tax Base during such additional term shall be as hereinafter set forth. If Tenant fails to give timely notice, as aforesaid, Tenant shall have no further right to extend the term of this Lease, time being of the essence of this Paragraph 2. B. YEARLY RENT The Yearly Rent during the additional term(s) shall be based upon the Fair Market Rental Value, as defined in Paragraph 3 of this Rider, as of the commencement of the additional term in question, of the Premises then demised to Tenant, provided however, that in no event shall the sum of Yearly Rent, Operating Expense Excess and Tax Excess payable by Tenant for any twelve-(12)- month period during an additional term be less than the sum of Yearly Rent, Operating Expense Excess and Tax Excess payable by Tenant in respect of the twelve-(12)-month period immediately preceding the commencement of the additional term. Tenant shall have the right, on and after the date eighteen (18) months prior to the expiration date of the initial term of the Lease or the previous extension term, as the case may be, to request in writing that Landlord advise Tenant of Landlord's designation of the Fair Market Rental Value applicable during the additional term. Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days after receipt of Tenant's request, advise Tenant in writing of such designation of the Fair Market Rental Value. C. TENANT'S TERMINATION RIGHT AFTER THE FAIR MARKET RENTAL VALUE IN RESPECT OF AN ADDITIONAL TERM IS DETERMINED. -85- 94 If Tenant has exercised its right to extend the term of the Lease in respect of an additional term, and if Tenant, in accordance with Subparagraph (C) of Paragraph 3 of this Rider, timely elects to arbitrate the Fair Market Rental Value applicable to such additional term, Tenant shall have the right to terminate the term of the Lease as follows: Tenant may exercise such right by giving written notice to Landlord on or before the date fifteen (15) days after the Yearly Rent for the extension term is either agreed to by the parties or is determined by the arbitrators, as the case may be. The effective termination date shall be the later of (i) twelve (12) months after Landlord receives such termination notice from Tenant, or (ii) the date that this Lease would have expired had Tenant not exercised the extension option in question. If Tenant timely exercises such termination right, then: (i) the Yearly Rent payable by Tenant for the period commencing as of the day after the expiration of the then current term of the Lease through the effective termination date shall be based upon the Fair Market Rental Value, as determined by the arbitrators or as agreed to by the parties, as the case may be, and (ii) Tenant shall be required to reimburse Landlord, within ten (10) days of billing therefor, for any and all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with the arbitration proceedings; and (iii) Landlord shall have the right, by notice ("Landlord's Extension Notice") given to Tenant within thirty (30) days after the receipt of Tenant's termination notice, to extend the Term of the Lease for a period ending on the date eighteen (18) months after the expiration of the Term, prior to any extension pursuant to Paragraph C above ("Short Extended Term"). If Landlord timely gives Landlord's Extension Notice, then the Term of the Lease shall be automatically extended for the Short Extended Term and the Yearly Rent during the Short Extended Term shall be based upon the Fair Market Rental Value, as determined by the arbitrators or as agreed to by the parties, as the case may be. D. Tenant shall have no further option to extend the term of the Lease other than the two (2) additional five (5) year terms herein provided. E. Notwithstanding the fact that upon Tenant's exercise of the herein option(s) to extend the term of the Lease such extension shall be self-executing, as aforesaid, the parties shall promptly execute a lease amendment reflecting such additional term after Tenant exercises the herein option, except that the Yearly Rent payable in respect of such additional term, the Operating Costs in the Base Year during such additional term, and the Tax Base during such additional term, may not be set forth in said amendment. Subsequently, after such Yearly Rent, Operating Costs in the Base Year, and Tax Base are determined, the parties shall execute a written agreement confirming the same. The execution of such lease amendment shall not be deemed to waive any of the conditions to Tenant's exercise of its rights under this Paragraph 2, unless otherwise specifically provided in such lease amendment. 3. DEFINITION OF FAIR MARKET RENTAL VALUE For the purposes of this Rider: A. "Fair Market Rental Value" shall be computed as of the date in question at the then current annual rental charge (i.e., the sum of Yearly Rent plus escalation and other charges), including provisions for subsequent increases and other adjustments for leases or agreements to lease then currently being negotiated, or executed in comparable space located in the Complex, or if no leases or agreements to lease are then currently being negotiated or executed in the Complex, the Fair Market Rental Value shall be determined by reference to leases or agreements to lease then currently being negotiated or executed for comparable space located elsewhere in -86- 95 first-class office buildings located in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. In determining Fair Market Rental Value, the following factors, among others, shall be taken into account and given effect: size, location of Premises, lease term, condition of building, economic concessions then being granted by the landlord, the absence of certain costs to be incurred by landlord (e.g., brokerage commissions, tenant improvement costs), and services provided by the landlord. B. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, the parties hereby agree that upon the determination of any Fair Market Rental Value, Landlord shall have the right, exercisable by written notice to Tenant on or before the time that Landlord gives Tenant its initial designation of Fair Market Rental Value: (1) to change Operating Costs in the Base Year as stated on Exhibit 1 from the amount stated on Exhibit 1 to an amount equal to the actual amount of Operating Costs for the immediately preceding Operating Year, and (2) to change the Tax Base as stated on Exhibit 1 from the amount stated on Exhibit 1 to an amount equal to the actual amount of Taxes for the immediately preceding fiscal/tax year for which Landlord has actual data. If Landlord shall exercise such right, the amount of Yearly Rent payable hereunder shall be commensurately adjusted to reflect such change in Operating Costs in the Base Year and in Tax Base. C. DISPUTE AS TO FAIR MARKET RENTAL VALUE Landlord shall initially designate Fair Market Rental Value and Landlord shall furnish data in support of such designation. If Tenant disagrees with Landlord's designation of a Fair Market Rental Value, Tenant shall have the right, by written notice given within thirty (30) days after Tenant has been notified of Landlord's designation, to submit such Fair Market Rental Value to arbitration. Fair Market Rental Value shall be submitted to arbitration as follows: Fair Market Rental Value shall be determined by impartial arbitrators, one to be chosen by the Landlord, one to be chosen by Tenant, and a third to be selected, if necessary, as below provided. The unanimous written decision of the two first chosen, without selection and participation of a third arbitrator, or otherwise, the written decision of a majority of three arbitrators chosen and selected as aforesaid, shall be conclusive and binding upon Landlord and Tenant. Landlord and Tenant shall each notify the other of its chosen arbitrator within ten (10) days following the call for arbitration and, unless such two arbitrators shall have reached a unanimous decision within thirty (30) days after their designation, they shall so notify the President of the Boston Bar Association (or such organization as may succeed to said Boston Bar Association) and request him to select an impartial third arbitrator, who shall be a real estate broker with at least ten (10) years' experience dealing with like types of properties in the Cambridge office market, to determine Fair Market Rental Value as herein defined. Such third arbitrator and the first two chosen shall, subject to commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, hear the parties and their evidence and render their decision within thirty (30) days following the conclusion of such hearing and notify Landlord and Tenant thereof. Landlord and Tenant shall bear the expense of the third arbitrator (if any) equally. The decision of the arbitrator shall be binding and conclusive, and judgment upon the award or decision of the arbitrator may be entered in the appropriate court of law (as identified on Exhibit 1); and the parties consent to the -87- 96 jurisdiction of such court and further agree that any process or notice of motion or other application to the Court or a Judge thereof may be served outside the State wherein the Building is situated by registered mail or by personal service, provided a reasonable time for appearance is allowed. If the dispute between the parties as to a Fair Market Rental Value has not been resolved before the commencement of Tenant's obligation to pay rent based upon such Fair Market Rental Value, then Tenant shall pay Yearly Rent and other charges under the Lease in respect of the Premises in question based upon the rate in effect immediately before the commencement of Tenant's obligation to pay rent based upon such Fair Market Rental Value until either the agreement of the parties as to the Fair Market Rental Value, or the decision of the arbitrators, as the case may be, at which time Tenant shall pay any underpayment of rent and other charges to Landlord, or Landlord shall refund any overpayment of rent and other charges to Tenant, in either case with interest at the rate set forth in Article 6 hereof. 4. ANTENNA AREA Tenant shall have the right to use the Antenna Area, as hereinafter defined, to install one or more satellite dishes and/or antennae (collectively, the "Antenna") for a period commencing as of the date that Tenant installs the Antenna, as hereinafter defined, in the Antenna Area ("Term Commencement Date in respect of the Antenna Area") and terminating as of the expiration or earlier termination of the term of the Lease. The "Antenna Area" shall be an area or areas on the roof of the Building containing approximately an aggregate of 2700 square feet of rentable area in an area to be designated by Landlord, provided that if such area consists of two or more non-contiguous areas, such areas must be reasonably suitable for Tenant's purposes of installing, maintaining and operating the Antenna. Tenant shall be permitted to use the Antenna Area solely for the Antenna installed in accordance with specifications approved by Landlord in advance utilizing a frequency or frequencies and transmission power identified in such approved specifications which Tenant will be installing in the Antenna Area and no other frequencies or transmission power shall be used by Tenant without Landlord's prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, except for matters of aesthetics, which shall be determined in Landlord's sole discretion. Such installation shall be designed in such manner as to be easily removable and so as not to damage the roof of the Building.

The parties hereby acknowledge and agree, by way of illustration and not limitation, that Landlord shall have the right to withhold its approval of Tenant's plans and specifications hereunder, and shall not be deemed to be unreasonable in doing so, if Tenant's intended placement or method of installation or operation of the Rooftop Installations (i) may subject other licensees, tenants or occupants of the Building, or other surrounding or neighboring landowners or their occupants, to signal interference, Tenant hereby acknowledging that a shield may be required in order to prevent such interference, (ii) does not minimize to the fullest extent practicable the obstruction of the views from the windows of the Building that are adjacent to the Rooftop Installations, if any, (iii) does not complement (in Landlord's sole judgment, which shall not, however, require Tenant to incur unreasonable expense) the design and finish of the Building, (iv) may damage the structural integrity of the Building or the roof thereof, or (v) may constitute a violation of any consent, approval, permit or authorization necessary for the lawful installation of the Rooftop Installations.

(i) Tenant recognizes that Landlord may wish to (and Landlord hereby reserves the right to) install a central Building system (the "Central Building System") capable of, among other things, providing Tenant with the type of service (to be) provided by Tenant's Rooftop Installations. If Landlord elects to install the Central Building System, and provided that such Central Building System is capable of providing service comparable to that provided by Tenant's Rooftop Installations, (i) Tenant shall, upon Landlord's request and at Tenant's expense, remove its Rooftop Installations and other Alterations (including any existing cabling) from the Building and repair any damage caused their installation or removal, (ii) Tenant may, at Tenant's -90- 99 expense and subject to the provisions of this Agreement (including, without limitation, subparagraph P hereof), have access to and use (and tie into) the Central Building System for the uses permitted hereunder, and (ii) commencing upon Tenant's use of the Central Building System and continuing thereafter throughout the term, the Yearly Rent payable hereunder shall be adjusted to be that which is reasonably designated by Landlord from time to time based upon Landlord's determination of the fair market value of the access rights to the Central Building System granted herein. (ii) Landlord shall maintain, repair or replace the Central Building System, in accordance with the standards for the repair and maintenance of such systems generally prevailing in the industry from time to time, so as to eliminate any material interruption or other adverse effects caused by malfunction, damage or destruction of the Central Building System, the cost of which shall be borne by Tenant if the problem was caused by the act or omission of Tenant or its agents, contractors or employees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord's obligation to maintain, repair or replace the Central Building System shall apply only to the extent necessary to reach premises in the Building that are then used by tenants after the malfunction, damage or destruction or that, if damaged or destroyed, will be again used by tenants upon the completion of restoration or repair thereof. In no event shall Tenant have any claim or right to make any claim against Landlord whatsoever for any damages, including, without limitation, consequential or incidental damages, or lost profits, in any such circumstance. 5.

Other than for periodic testing as aforesaid, in no event shall Tenant be entitled to operate the Generator except in cases of a power outage to the Premises or any portion thereof. -93-
