LIENS Tenant shall keep the Premises and the Complex free from any liens arising out of any work performed, materials furnished or obligations incurred by Tenant in the event that Tenant shall not, within ten (10) days following the imposition of such lien, cause the same to be released of record, Landlord shall have, in addition to all other remedies provided herein and by law, the right, but no obligation, to cause the same to be released by such means as it shall deem proper, including payment of the claim giving rise to such lien. All sums paid by Landlord for such purpose, and all expenses incurred by it in connection therewith, shall be payable to Landlord by Tenant on demand with interest at the prime rate of interest as quoted by the Bank of America. 19. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING Tenant shall not assign, transfer, or hypothecate the leasehold estate under this Lease, or any interest therein, and shall not sublet the Premises, or any part thereof, or any right or privilege appurtenant thereto, or suffer any other person or entity to occupy or use the Premises, or any portion thereof, without, in each case, the prior written consent of Landlord which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. As a condition for granting this consent to any assignment, transfer or subletting, Landlord may require that Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord, as additional rent 50% of all rents or additional consideration received by Tenant from its assignees, transferees, or subtenants in excess of the rent payable by Tenant to Landlord hereunder. [...any reasonable leasing commissions paid by Tenant to third parties not affiliated with Tenant.] Tenant shall by thirty (30) days written notice advise Landlord of its intent to assign or transfer Tenant's interest in the Lease or sublet the Premises or any portion thereof for any part of the term hereof. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of said written notice, Landlord may, in its sole discretion, elect to terminate this Lease as to the portion of the Premises described in Tenant's notice on the date specified in Tenant's notice by giving written notice of such election to terminate. If no such notice to terminate is given to Tenant within said thirty (30) day period, Tenant may proceed to locate an acceptable sublessee, assignee, or other transferee for presentment to Landlord for Landlord's approval, all in accordance with the terms, covenants, and conditions of this paragraph 19. If Tenant intends to sublet the entire Premises and Landlord elects to terminate this Lease, this Lease shall be terminated on the date specified in Tenant's notice. If, however, this Lease shall terminate pursuant to the foregoing with respect to less than all of the Premises, the rent, as defined and reserved hereinabove shall be adjusted on a pro rata basis to the number of square feet retained by Tenant, and this Lease as so amended shall continue in full force and effect. In the event Tenant is allowed to assign, transfer or sublet the whole or any part, of the Premises, with the prior written consent of Landlord, no assignee, transferee or subtenant shall assign or transfer this Lease, either in whole or in part, or sublet the whole or any part of the Premises, without also having obtained the prior written consent of Landlord which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. A consent of Landlord to one assignment, transfer, hypothecation, subletting, occupation or use by any other person. Any such assignment transfer, hypothecation, subletting, occupation or use without such consent shall be void and shall constitute a breach of this Lease by Tenant and shall, at the option of Landlord exercised by written notice to Tenant, terminate this Lease. The leasehold estate under this Lease shall not, nor shall any interest therein, be assignable for any purpose by operation of law without the written consent of Landlord which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. As a condition to its consent, Landlord may require Tenant to pay all expenses in connection with the assignment, and Landlord may require Tenant's assignee or transferee (or other assignees or transferees) to assume in writing all of the obligations under this Lease and for Tenant to remain liable to Landlord under the Lease. See Paragraph 50. 20. SUBORDINATION AND MORTGAGES In the event Landlord's title or leasehold interest is now or hereafter encumbered by a deed of trust, upon the interest of Landlord in the land and buildings in which the demised Premises are located, to secure a loan from a lender (hereinafter referred to as 'Lender') to Landlord, Tenant shall, at the request of Landlord or Lender, execute in writing an agreement subordinating its rights under this Lease to the lien of such deed of trust, or, if so requested, agreeing that the lien of Lender's deed of trust shall be or remain subject and subordinate to the rights of Tenant under this Lease [and provided Lender executes a reasonable nondisturbance agreement]. Notwithstanding any such subordination, Tenant's possession under this Lease shall not be disturbed if Tenant is not in default and so long as tenant shall pay all rent and observe and perform all of the provisions set forth in this lease. 21. ENTRY BY LANDLORD Landlord reserves, and shall at all reasonable times after at least 24 hours notice (except in emergencies) have, the right to enter the Premises to inspect them; to perform any services to be provided by Landlord hereunder; to submit the Premises to prospective purchasers, mortgagers or tenants; to post notices of nonresponsibility; and to alter, improve or repair the Premises and any portion of the Complex, all without abatement of rent; and may erect scaffolding and other necessary structures in or through the Premises where reasonably required by the character of the work to be performed; provided, however that the business of Tenant shall be interfered with to the least extent that is reasonably practical. For each of the foregoing purposes, Landlord shall at all times have and retain a key with which to unlock all of the doors in an emergency in order to obtain entry to the Premises, and any entry to the Premises obtained by Landlord by any of said means, or otherwise, shall not under any circumstances be construed or deemed to be a forcible or unlawful entry into or a detainer of the premises or an eviction, actual or constructive, of Tenant from the Premises or any portion thereof. Landlord shall also have the right at any time to change the arrangement or location of entrances or passageways, doors and doorways, and corridors, elevators, stairs, toilets or other public parts of the Complex and to change the name, number or designation by which the Complex is commonly known, and none of the foregoing shall be deemed an actual or constructive eviction of Tenant, or shall entitle Tenant to any reduction of rent hereunder. 22. BANKRUPTCY AND DEFAULT The commencement of a bankruptcy action or liquidation action or reorganization action or insolvency action or an assignment of or by Tenant for the benefit of creditors, or any similar action undertaken by Tenant, or the insolvency of Tenant, shall, at Landlord's option, constitute a breach of this Lease by Tenant. If the trustee or receiver appointed to serve during a bankruptcy liquidation, reorganization, insolvency or similar action elects to reject Tenant's unexpired Lease, the trustee or receiver shall notify Landlord in writing of its election within thirty (30) days after an order for relief in a liquidation action or within thirty (30) days after the commencement of any action. Within thirty (30) days after court approval of the assumption of this Lease, the trustee or receiver shall cure (or provide adequate assurance to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord that the trustee or receiver shall cure) any and all previous defaults under the unexpired Lease and shall compensate Landlord for all actual pecuniary loss and shall provide adequate assurance of future performance under said Lease to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Adequate assurance of future performance, as used herein, includes, but shall not be limited to: (i) assurance of source and payment of rent, and other consideration due under this Lease; (ii) assurance that the assumption or assignment of this Lease will not breach substantially any provision, such as radius, location, use, or exclusivity provision, in any agreement relating to the above described Premises. Nothing contained in this section shall affect the existing right of Landlord to refuse to accept an assignment upon commencement of or in connection with a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization or insolvency action or an assignment of Tenant for the benefit of creditors or other similar act. Nothing contained in this Lease shall be construed as giving or granting or creating an equity in the demised Premises to Tenant. In no event shall the leasehold estate under this Lease, or any interest therein, be assigned by Tenant under any bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization proceedings. The failure to perform or honor any covenant, condition or representation made under this Lease shall constitute a default hereunder by Tenant upon expiration of the appropriate grace period hereinafter provided. Tenant shall have a period of five (5) days from the date of written notice from Landlord within which to cure any default in the payment of rental or adjustment thereto. Tenant shall have a period of thirty (30) days from the date of written notice from Landlord within which to cure any other default under this Lease . Upon an uncured default of this Lease by Tenant Landlord shall have the following rights and remedies in addition to any other rights or remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity. (a) The rights and remedies provided for by California Civil Code Section 1951.2, including but not limited to, recovery of the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the amount of rental loss for the same period that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided, as computed pursuant to subsection (b) of said Section 1951.2. Any proof by Tenant under subparagraphs (2) and (3) of Section 1951.2 of the California Civil Code of the amount of rental loss that could be reasonable avoided shall be made in the following manner: Landlord and Tenant shall each select a licensed real estate broker in the business of renting property of the same type and use as the Premises and in the same geographic vicinity. Such two real estate brokers shall select a third licensed real estate broker, and the three licensed real estate brokers so selected shall determine the amount of the rental loss that could be reasonably avoided from the balance of the term of this Lease after the time of award. The decision of the majority of said licensed real estate brokers shall be final and binding upon the parties hereto. (b) The rights and remedies provided by California Civil Code Section which allows Landlord to continue the Lease in effect and to enforce all of its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover rent as it becomes due, for so long as Landlord does not terminate Tenant's right to possession; acts of maintenance or preservation, efforts to relet the Premises, or the appointment of a receiver upon Landlord's initiative to protect its interest under this Lease shall not constitute a termination of Tenant's right to possession. (c) The right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Tenant in accordance with applicable law. (d)  The right and power to enter the Premises and remove therefrom all persons and property, to store such property in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of and for the account of Tenant, and to sell such property and apply such proceeds therefrom pursuant to applicable California law. Landlord may from time to time sublet the Premises or any part thereof for such term or terms (which may extend beyond the term of this Lease) and at such rent and such other terms as Landlord in its sole discretion may deem advisable, with the right to make alterations and repairs to the Premises. Upon each subletting, (i) Tenant shall be immediately liable to pay Landlord, in addition to indebtedness other than rent due hereunder, the cost of such subletting, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees, and any real estate commission actually paid, and the cost of such alterations and repairs incurred by Landlord and the amount, if any, by which the rent hereunder for the period of such subletting (to the extent such period does not exceed the term hereof) exceeds the amount to be paid as rent for the Premises for such period or (ii) at the option of Landlord, rents received from such subletting shall be applied first to payment of indebtedness other than rent due hereunder from Tenant to Landlord; second, to the payment of any cost of such subletting and of such alterations and repairs; third to payment of rent due and unpaid hereunder; and the residue, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future rent as the same becomes due hereunder. If Tenant has been credited with any rent to be received by such subletting under option (i) and such rent shall not be promptly paid to Landlord by the subtenant(s), or is such rentals received from such subletting under option (ii) during any month be less than that to be paid during that month by Tenant hereunder. Tenant shall pay any such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly, provided, however, that if the nature of Tenant's failure is such that more than thirty (30) days is reasonably required to cure the same, Tenant shall not be in default so long as Tenant commences performance within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter prosecutes the same to completion. No taking possession of the Premises by Landlord shall be construed as an election on its part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention to Tenant. Notwithstanding any such subletting without termination, Landlord may at any time hereafter elect to terminate this Lease for such previous breach. (e) The right to have a receiver appointed for Tenant upon application by Landlord, to take possession of the Premises and to apply any rental collected from the Premises and to exercise all other rights and remedies granted to Landlord pursuant to subparagraph d above (except that Tenant may vacate so long as it pays rent, provides and on-site security guard during normal business hours from Monday through Friday, and otherwise performs its obligations hereunder. 23. ABANDONMENT Tenant shall not vacate or abandon the Premises at any time during the term of this Lease and if Tenant shall abandon, vacate or surrender said Premises, or be dispossessed by the process of law, or otherwise, any personal property belonging to Tenant and left on the Premiss shall be deemed to be abandoned, at the option of Landlord, except such property as may be mortgaged to Landlord. 24. DESTRUCTION In the event the Premises are destroyed in whole or in part from any cause, except for routine maintenance and repairs and incidental damage and destruction caused from vandalism and accidents for which Tenant is responsible for under Paragraph 10. Landlord, may at its option: (a) Rebuild or restore the Premises to their condition prior to the damage or destruction, or (b) Terminate this Lease. (providing that the Premises is damaged to the extent of 33 1/3% of the replacement cost). If Landlord does not give Tenant notice in writing within thirty (30) days from the destruction of the Premises of its election to either rebuild or restore the Premises to their condition prior to the damage or destruction. Tenant shall be entitled to a reduction in rent while such repair is being made in the proportion that the area of the Premises rendered untenable by such damage bears to the total area of the Premises. [...that the rebuilding or restoration will exceed days or] If Landlord does not complete the rebuilding or restoration within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of destruction (such period of time to be extended for delays caused by the fault or neglect of Tenant or because of Acts of God, acts of public agencies, labor disputes, strikes, fires, freight embargoes, rainy or stormy weather, inability to obtain materials, supplies or fuels, acts of contractors or subcontractors, or delay of the contractors or subcontractors due to such causes or other contingencies beyond the control of Landlord), then Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving fifteen (15) days prior written notice to Landlord. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Landlord's obligation to rebuild or restore shall be limited to the building and interior improvements constructed by Landlord as they existed as of the commencement date of the Lease and shall not include restoration of Tenant's trade fixtures, equipment, merchandise, or any improvements, alterations or additions made by Tenant to the Premises, which Tenant shall forthwith replace or fully repair at Tenant's sole cost and expense provided this Lease is not cancelled according to the provisions above. Unless this Lease is terminated pursuant to the foregoing provisions, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect. Tenant hereby expressly waives the provisions of Section 1932, Subdivision 2, in Section 1933, Subdivision 4 of the California Civil Code. In the event that the building in which the Premises are situated is damaged or destroyed to the extent of not less than 33 1/3% of the replacement cost thereof. Landlord may elect to terminate this Lease, whether the Premises be injured or not. 25.

Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, any compensation specifically awarded Tenant for loss of business. Tenant's personal property, moving cost or loss of goodwill, shall be and remain the property of Tenant. If (i) any action or proceeding is commenced for such taking of the Premises or any part thereof, or if Landlord is advised in writing by any entity or body having the right or power of condemnation of its intention to condemn the premises or any portion thereof, or (ii) any of the foregoing events occur with respect to the taking of any space in the Complex not leased hereby, or if any such spaces so taken or conveyed in lieu of such taking and Landlord shall decide to discontinue the use and operation of the Complex, or decide to demolish, alter or rebuild the Complex, then, in any of such events Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving Tenant written notice thereof within sixty (60) days of the date of receipt of said written advice, or commencement of said action or proceeding, or taking conveyance, which termination shall take place as the first to occur of the last day of the calendar month next following the month in which such notice is given or the date on which title to the Premises shall vest in the condemner. In the event of such a partial taking or conveyance of the Premises, if the portion of the Premises taken or conveyed is so substantial that the Tenant can no longer reasonably conduct its business, Tenant shall have the privilege of terminating this Lease within sixty (60) days from the date of such taking or conveyance, upon written notice to Landlord of its intention so to do, and upon giving of such notices this Lease shall terminate on the last day of the calendar month next following the month in which such notice is given, upon payment by Tenant of the rent from the date of such taking or conveyance to the date of termination.

SALE OR CONVEYANCE BY LANDLORD In the event of a sale or conveyance of the Complex or any interest therein, by any owner of the reversion then constituting, the transferor shall thereby be released from any further liability upon any of the terms, covenants or conditions (express or implied) contained in favor of Tenant, and in such event, insofar as such transfer is concerned, Tenant agrees to look solely to the responsibility of the successor in interest of such transferor in and to the Complex and this Lease. This Lease shall not be affected by any such sale or conveyance, and Tenant agrees to attorn to the successor in interest of such transferor. 27. ATTORNMENT TO LENDER OR THIRD PARTY In the event the interest of Landlord in the land and buildings in which the leased Premises are located whether such interest of Landlord is a fee title interest or a leasehold interest is encumbered by deed of trust, and such interest is acquired by the lender or any third party through judicial foreclosure or by exercise of a power of sale at private trustee's foreclosure sale.

HOLDING OVER Any holding over by Tenant after expiration or other termination of the term of this Lease with the written consent of Landlord delivered to Tenant shall not constitute a renewal or extension of the Lease or give Tenant any rights in or to the leased Premises except as expressly provided in this Lease. Any holding over after the expiration or other termination of the term of this Lease, with the consent of Landlord, shall be construed to be a tenancy from month to month, on the same terms and conditions herein specified insofar as applicable except that the month Basic Rent shall be increased to an amount equal to one hundred fifty (150%) percent of monthly Basic Rent required during the last month of the Lease term. 29.

Subtenant knowingly and intentionally waives any and all protection which is or may be given by Section 1542 of the California Civil Code which provides as follows: 'A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with debtor.' The term of this Sublease is therefore subject to early termination.

MAINTENANCE OF THE PREMISES: In addition to, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Paragraph 10, Landlord shall repair damage to the structural shelf, foundation, and roof structure (but not the interior improvements, roof membrane, or glazing) of the building leased hereunder at Landlord's cost and expense provided Tenant has not caused such damage, in which event Tenant shall be responsible for 100 percent of any such costs for repair or damage so caused by the Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a crack in the foundation, or exterior walls that does not endanger the structural integrity of the building, or which is not life- threatening, shall not be considered material, nor shall Landlord be responsible for repair of same. 53.

Landlord shall have thirty (30) days thereafter (or longer if necessary, provided Landlord is diligently pursuing the completion of the same) to complete, at Landlord's expense, the 'punch list' items without the Commencement Date of the Lease and Tenant's obligation to pay Rental thereunder being affected. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a crack in the foundation, or exterior walls that does not endanger the structural integrity of the building, or which is not life-threatening, shall not be considered material, nor shall Landlord be responsible for repair of same. This Paragraph shall be of no force and effect if Tenant shall fail to give any such notice to Landlord within thirty (30) days after the Commencement Date of this Lease.
