Increase," in accordance with the following provisions: (SEE FIRST ADDENDUM,

Lessor and Lessee agree are reasonable and shall not be subject to revision
except in connection with an actual change in the size of the Premises or a
change in the space available for lease in the Office Building Project.
(b) "Base Year" is defined as 1998. IF THE LEASE COMMENCEMENT IS

mandated by a governmental authority, as to which government mandated expenses
Lessee shall pay Lessee's Share, notwithstanding they occur during the first
twelve (12) months). Lessee's Share of the Operating Expense Increase for the
first and last Comparison Years of the Lease Term shall be prorated according to
that portion of such Comparison Year as to which Lessee is responsible for a
share of such increase

expenses is presented to Lessee by Lessor. At Lessor's option, however, an
amount may be estimated by Lessor from time to time in advance of Lessee's Share
of the Operating Expense Increase for any Comparison Year, and the same shall be
payable monthly or quarterly, as Lessor shall designate, during each Comparison
Year of the Lease term, on the same day as the Base Rent is due hereunder. In
the event that Lessee pays Lessor's estimate of Lessee's Share of Operating
Expense Increase as aforesaid, Lessor shall deliver to Lessee within sixty (60)
days after the expiration of each Comparison Year a reasonably detailed
statement showing Lessee's Share of the actual Operating Expense Increase
incurred during such year. If Lessee's payments under this paragraph 4.2(g)
during said Comparison Year exceed Lessee's Share as indicated on said
statement, Lessee shall be entitled to credit the amount of such overpayment
against Lessee's Share of Operating Expense Increase next falling due. If
Lessee's payments under this paragraph during said Comparison Year were less
than Lessee's Share as indicated on said statement, Lessee shall pay to Lessor
the amount of the deficiency within ten (10) days after delivery by Lessor to
Lessee of said statement. Lessor and Lessee shall forthwith adjust between them
by cash payment any balance determined to exist with respect to that portion of
the last Comparison Year for which Lessee is responsible as to Operating Expense
Increases, notwithstanding that the Lease term may have terminated before the
end of such Comparison Year.

rent or other charges due hereunder, or otherwise defaults with respect to any
provision of this Lease, Lessor may use, apply or retain all or any portion of
said deposit for the payment of any rent or other charge in default for the
payment of any other sum to which Lessor may become obligated by reason of
Lessee's default, or to compensate Lessor for any loss or damage which Lessor
may suffer thereby. If Lessor so uses or applies all or any portion of said
deposit, Lessee shall within ten (10) days after written demand therefor deposit
cash with Lessor in an amount sufficient to restore said deposit to the full
amount then required of Lessee. Lessor shall not be required to keep said
security deposit separate from its general accounts. If Lessee performs all of
Lessee's obligations hereunder, said deposit, or so much thereof as has not
heretofore been applied by Lessor, shall be returned, without payment of
interest or other increment for its use, to Lessee (or, at Lessor's option, to
the last assignee, it any, of Lessee's interest hereunder) at the expiration of
the term hereof, and after Lessee has vacated the Premises. No trust
relationship is created herein between Lessor and Lessee with respect to said
6.1 Use. The Premises shall be used and occupied only for the purpose
set forth in paragraph 1.4 of the Basic Lease Provisions or any other use which
is reasonably comparable to that use and for no other purpose.
6.2 Compliance with Law.
(a) Lessor warrants to Lessee that the Premises, in the state
existing on the date that the Lease term commences but without regard to
alterations or improvements made by Lessee or the use for which Lessee will
occupy the Premises, do not violate any covenants or restrictions of record, or
any applicable building code, regulation or ordinance in effect on such Lease
term Commencement Date. In the event it is determined that this warranty has
been violated, then it shall be the obligation of the Lessor, after written
notice from Lessee, to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost and expense, rectify any
(b) Except as provided in paragraph 6.2(a) Lessee shall, at
Lessee's expense, promptly comply with all applicable statutes, ordinances,
rules, regulations, orders, covenants and restrictions of record, and
requirements of any fire insurance underwriters or rating bureaus, now in effect
or which may hereafter come into effect, whether or not they reflect a change in
policy from that now existing, during the term or any part of the term hereof,
relating in any manner to the Premises and the occupation and use by Lessee of
the Premises. Lessee shall conduct its business in a lawful manner and shall not
use or permit the use of the Premises or the Common Areas in any manner that
will tend to create waste or a nuisance or shall tend to disturb other occupants
of the Office Building Project.
6.3 Condition of Premises.
(a) Lessor shall deliver the Premises to Lessee in a clean
condition on the Lease Commencement Date (unless Lessee is already in
possession) and Lessor warrants to Lessee that the plumbing, lighting, air
conditioning, and heating systems in the Premises shall be in good operating
condition. In the event that it is determined that this warranty has been
violated, then it shall be the obligation of Lessor, after receipt of written
notice from Lessee setting forth with specificity the nature of the violation,
to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost, rectify such violation.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, Lessee hereby
accepts the Premises and the Office Building Project in their condition existing
as of the Lease Commencement Date or the date that Lessee takes possession of
the Premises, whichever is earlier, subject to all applicable zoning, municipal,
county and state laws, ordinances and regulations governing and regulating the
use of the Premises, and any easements, covenants or restrictions of record, and
accepts this Lease subject thereto and to all matters disclosed thereby and by
any exhibits attached hereto. Lessee acknowledges that it has satisfied itself
by its own independent investigation that the Premises are suitable for its
intended use, and that neither Lessor nor Lessor's agent or agents has made any
representation or warranty as to the present or future suitability of the
Premises, Common Areas, or Office Building Project for the conduct of Lessee's
business. LESSOR SHALL MAINTAIN THE PREMISES IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION FROM THE
DATE OF EXECUTION OF THIS LEASE UNTIL THE COMMENCEMENT DATE.
7. MAINTENANCE, REPAIRS, ALTERATIONS AND COMMON AREA SERVICES.
7.1 Lessors Obligations. Lessor shall keep the Office Building Project,
including the Premises interior and exterior walls, roof, and common areas, and
the equipment whether used exclusively for the Premises or in common with other
premises, in good condition and repair; provided, however, Lessor shall not be
obligated to paint, repair or replace wall coverings, or to repair or replace
any improvements that are not ordinarily a part of the Building or are above the
Building standards. Except as provided in paragraph 9.5, there shall be no
abatement of rent or liability of Lessee on account of any injury or
interference with Lessee's business with respect to my improvements, alterations
or repairs made by Lessor to the Office Building Project or any part thereof.
Lessee expressly waives the benefits of any statute now or hereafter in effect
which would otherwise afford Lessee the right to make repairs at Lessor's
expense or to terminate this Lease because of Lessor's failure to keep the
Premises in good order, condition and repair.
7.2 Lessee's Obligations.
(a) Notwithstanding Lessor's obligation to keep the Premises in
good condition and repair, Lessee shall be responsible for payment of the cost
thereof to Lessor as additional rent for that portion of the cost of any
maintenance and repair of the Premises, or any equipment (wherever located) that
serves only Lessee or the Premises, to the extent such cost is attributable to
causes beyond normal wear and tear. Lessee shall be responsible for the cost of
painting, repairing or replacing wall coverings, and to repair or replace any
Premises improvements that are not ordinarily a part of the Building or that are
above the Building standards. Lessor may, at its option, upon reasonable notice,
have Lessee perform any particular such maintenance or repairs the cost
of which is otherwise Lessee's responsibility hereunder.
(b) On the last day of the term hereof, or on any sooner
termination, Lessee shall surrender the Premises to Lessor in the same condition
as received, ordinary wear and tear excepted, clean and free of debris. Any
damage or deterioration of the Premises shall not be deemed ordinary wear and
tear if the same could have been prevented by good maintenance practices by
Lessee. Lessee shall repair any damage to the Premises occasioned by the
installation or removal of Lessee's trade fixtures, alterations, furnishings and
equipment. Except as otherwise stated in this Lease, Lessee shall leave the air
lines, power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting fixtures, air
conditioning, window coverings, wall coverings, carpets, wall paneling, ceilings
and plumbing on the Premises and in good operating condition.
7.3 Alterations and Additions.
(a) Lessee shall not, without Lessor's prior written consent make
any alterations, improvements, additions, Utility Installations or repairs in,
on, or about the Premises or the Office Building Project. As used in this
paragraph 7.3 the term "Utility Installation" shall mean carpeting, window and
wall coverings, power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting
fixtures, air conditioning, plumbing, and telephone and telecommunication wiring
and equipment. At the expiration of the term, Lessor may require the removal of
any or all of said alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations, and the restoration of the Premises and the Office Building
Project to their prior condition, at Lessee's expense. Should Lessor permit
Lessee to make its own alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations, Lessee shall use only such contractor as has been expressly
approved by Lessor, and Lessor may require Lessee to provide Lessor, at Lessee's
sole cost and expense, a lien and completion bond in an amount equal to one and
one-half times the estimated cost of such improvements, to insure Lessor against
any liability for mechanic's and materialmen's liens and to insure completion of
the work. Should Lessee make any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations without the prior approval of Lessor, or use a contractor not
expressly approved by Lessor, Lessor may, at any time during the term of this
Lease, require that Lessee remove any part or all of the same.
(b) Any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations in or about the Premises or the Office Building Project that
Lessee shall desire to make shall be presented to Lessor in written form, with
proposed detailed plans. If Lessor shall give its consent to Lessee's making
such alteration, improvement, addition or Utility Installation, the consent
shall be deemed conditioned upon Lessee acquiring a permit to do so from the
applicable governmental agencies, furnishing a copy thereof to Lessor prior to
the commencement of the work, and compliance by Lessee with all conditions of
said permit in a prompt and expeditious manner.
(c) Lessee shall pay, when due, all claims for labor or materials
furnished or alleged to have been furnished to or for Lessee at or for use in
the Premises, which claims are or may be secured by any mechanic's or
materialmen's lien against the Premises, the Building or the Office Building
Project, or any interest therein.
(d) Lessee shall give Lessor not less than ten (10) days' notice
prior to the commencement of any work in the Premises by Lessee, and Lessor
shall have the right to post notices of non-responsibility in or on the Premises
or the Building as provided by law. If Lessee shall, in good faith, contest the
validity of any such lien, claim or demand, then Lessee shall, at its sole
expense defend itself and Lessor against the same and shall pay and satisfy any
such adverse judgment that may be rendered thereon before the enforcement
thereof against the Lessor or the Premises, the Building or the Office Building
Project, upon the condition that if Lessor shall require, Lessee shall furnish
to Lessor a surety bond satisfactory to Lessor in an amount equal to such
contested lien claim or demand indemnifying Lessor against liability for the
same and holding the Premises, the Building and the Office Building Project free
from the effect of such lien or claim. In addition, Lessor may require Lessee to
pay Lessor's reasonable attorneys' fees and costs in participating in such
action if Lessor shall decide it is to Lessor's best interest so to do.
(e) All alterations, improvements, additions and Utility
Installations which may be made to the Premises by Lessee, including but not
limited to, floor coverings, paneling, doors, drapes, built-ins, moldings, sound
attenuation, and lighting and telephone or communication systems, conduit,
wiring and outlets, shall be made and done in a good and workmanlike manner and
of good and sufficient quality and materials and shall be the property of Lessor
and remain upon and be surrendered with the Premises at the expiration of the
Lease term, unless Lessor requires their removal pursuant to paragraph 7.3(a).
Provided Lessee is not in default, notwithstanding the provisions of this
paragraph 7.3(e), Lessee's personal property and equipment, other than that
which is affixed to the Premises so that it cannot be removed without material
damage to the Premises or the Building and other than Utility Installations,
shall remain the property of Lessee and may be removed by Lessee subject to the
provisions of paragraph 7.2.
(f) Lessee shall provide Lessor with as-built plans and
specifications for any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
7.4 Utility Additions. Lessor reserves the right to install new or
additional utility facilities throughout the Office Building Project for the
benefit of Lessor or Lessee, or any other lessee of the Office Building Project,
including, but not by way of limitation, such utilities as plumbing, electrical
systems, communication systems, and fire protection and detection systems, so
long as such installations do not unreasonably interfere with Lessee's use of

better, in an amount of not less than $2,000,000 per occurrence of bodily injury
and property damage combined or in a greater amount as reasonably determined by
Lessor and shall insure Lessee with Lessor and Lender of Lessor as an additional
insured against liability arising out of the use, occupancy or maintenance of
the Premises. Compliance with the above requirement shall not, however, limit
the liability of Lessee hereunder.
8.2 Liability Insurance-Lessor. Lessor shall, obtain and keep in force
during the term of this Lease a policy of Combined Single Limit Bodily Injury
and Broad Form Property Damage Insurance, plus coverage against such other risks
Lessor deems advisable from time to time, insuring Lessor, but not Lessee,
against liability arising out of the ownership, use,
occupancy or maintenance of the Office Building Project in an amount not less
than $5,000,000.00 per occurrence.
8.3 Property Insurance-Lessee. Lessee shall at Lessee's expense, obtain
and keep in force during the term of this Lease for the benefit of Lessee,

replacement cost, as the same may exist from time to time, of all of Lessee's
personal property, fixtures, equipment and tenant improvements.
8.4 Property Insurance-Lessor. Lessor shall obtain and keep in force
during the term of this Lease a policy or policies of insurance covering loss or

replacement cost thereof, as the same may exist from time to time, utilizing
Insurance Services Office standard form, or equivalent, providing protection
against all perils included within the classification of fire, extended

such policies carried by Lessor and shall have no right to any proceeds
therefrom. The policies required by these paragraphs 8.2 and 8.4 shall contain
such deductibles as Lessor or the aforesaid lender may determine. In the event
that the Premises shall suffer an insured loss as defined in paragraph 9.1(f)
hereof, the deductible amounts under the applicable insurance policies shall be
deemed an Operating Expense. Lessee shall not do or permit to be done anything
which shall invalidate the insurance policies carried by Lessor. Lessee shall
pay the entirety of any increase in the property insurance premium for the
Office Building Project over what it was immediately prior to the commencement
of the term of this Lease if the increase is specified by Lessor's insurance

negligence of Lessor or Lessee or their agents, employees, contractors and/or
invitees. If necessary all property insurance policies required under this Lease
shall be endorsed to so provide.
8.7 Indemnity. Lessee shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessor and its
agents, Lessor's master or ground lessor, partners and lenders, EXCEPT WITH
RESPECT TO ANY WILLFUL AND/OR NEGLIGENT MISCONDUCT OF LESSOR, ITS AGENTS,

reason of any such matter, Lessee upon notice from Lessor shall defend the same

CONTRACTORS AND INVITEES, OR LESSOR'S BREACH OF THIS LEASE, nor shall Lessor be
liable for injury to the person of Lessee, Lessee's employees, agents or
contractors, EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO ANY WILLFUL AND/OR NEGLIGENT MISCONDUCT OF
LESSOR, ITS AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS AND INVITEES, OR LESSOR'S BREACH OF

fire, steam, electricity, gas, water or rain, or from the breakage, leakage,
obstruction or other defects of pipes, sprinklers, wires, appliances, plumbing,
air conditioning or lighting fixtures, or from any other cause, whether said
damage or injury results from conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other
portions of the Office Building Project, or from other sources or places, or
from new construction or the repair, alteration or improvement of any part of
the Office Building Project, or of the equipment, fixtures or appurtenances
applicable thereto, and regardless of whether the cause of such damage or injury
or the means of repairing the same is inaccessible, Lessor shall not be liable
for any damages arising from any act or neglect of any other lessee, occupant or
user of the Office Building Project, nor from the failure of Lessor to enforce
the provisions of any other lease of any other lessee of the Office Building

make the loss an uninsured loss.
(g) "Replacement Cost" shall mean the amount of money necessary to
be spent in order to repair or rebuild the damaged area to the condition that
existed immediately prior to the damage occurring, excluding all improvements
made by lessees other than those installed by Lessor at Lessee's expense.
9.2 Premises Damage; Premises Building Partial Damage.
(a) Insured Loss. Subject to the provisions of paragraphs 9.4 and
9.5, if at any time during the term of this Lease there is damage which is an
Insured Loss and which falls into the classification of either Premises Damage
or Premises Building Partial Damage, then Lessor shall, as soon as reasonably
possible and to the extent the required materials and labor are readily
available through usual commercial channels, at Lessor's expense, repair such
damage (but not Lessee's fixtures, equipment or tenant improvements originally
paid for by Lessee) to its condition existing at the time of the damage, and
this Lease shall continue in full force and effect.
(b) Uninsured Loss. Subject to the provisions of paragraphs 9.4 and
9.5, if at any time during the term of this Lease there is damage which is not
an Insured Loss and which falls within the classification of Premises Damage or
Premises Building Partial Damage, unless caused by a negligent or willful act of
Lessee (in which event Lessee shall make the repairs at Lessee's expense), which
damage prevents Lessee from making any substantial use of the Premises, Lessor
may at Lessor's option either (i) repair such damage as soon as reasonably
possible at Lessor's expense, in which event this Lease shall continue in full
force and effect, or (ii) give written notice to Lessee within thirty (30) days

the date of occurrence of such damage by giving written notice to Lessee of
Lessor's election to do so within 30 days after the date of occurrence of such
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph 9.4(a), in the event that Lessee has
an option to extend or renew this Lease, and the time within which said option
may be exercised has not yet expired, Lessee shall exercise such option, if it
is to be exercised at all, no later than twenty (20) days after the occurrence
of an Insured Loss falling within the classification of Premises Damage during
the last twelve (12) months of the term of this Lease. If Lessee duly exercises
such option during said twenty (20) day period, Lessor shall, at Lessor's
expense, repair such damage, but not Lessee's fixtures, equipment or tenant
improvements, as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall continue in
full force and effect. If Lessee fails to exercise such option during said
twenty (20) day period, then Lessor may at Lessor's option terminate and cancel
this Lease as of the expiration of said twenty (20) day period by giving written
notice to Lessee of Lessor's election to do so within ten (10) days after the
expiration of said twenty (20) day period, notwithstanding any term or provision
in the grant of option to the contrary.

(a) In the event Lessor repairs or restores the Building or
Premises pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph 9, and any part of the
Premises are not usable (including loss of use due to loss of access or
essential services), the rent payable hereunder (including Lessee's Share of
Operating Expense Increase) for the period during which such damage, repair or
restoration continues shall be abated, provided (1) the damage was not the
result of the negligence of Lessee, and (2) such abatement shall only be to the
extent the operation of Lessee's business as operated from the Premises is
adversely affected. Except for said abatement of rent, if any, Lessee shall have
no claim against Lessor for any damage suffered by reason of any such damage,
destruction, repair or restoration.
(b) If Lessor shall be obligated to repair or restore the Premises
or the Building under the provisions of this Paragraph 9 and shall not commence
such repair or restoration within sixty (60) days after such occurrence, or if
Lessor shall not complete the restoration and repair within nine (9) months
after such occurrence, Lessee may at Lessee's option cancel and terminate this
Lease by giving Lessor written notice of Lessee's election to do so at any time
prior to the commencement or completion, respectively, of such repair or
restoration. In such event this Lease shall terminate as of the date of such
(c) Lessee agrees to cooperate with Lessor in connection with any
such restoration and repair, including but not limited to the approval and/or
execution of plans and specifications required.
9.6 Termination-Advance Payments. Upon termination of this Lease
pursuant to this paragraph 9, an equitable advancement shall be made concerning
advance rent and any advance payments made by Lessee to Lessor. Lessor shall, in
addition, return to Lessee so much of Lessee's security deposit as has not
therefore been applied by Lessor.
9.7 Waiver. Lessor and Lessee waive the provisions of any statute which
relate to termination of leases when leased property is destroyed and agree that
such event shall be governed by the terms of this Lease.

defined in paragraph 10.3, applicable to the Office Building Project subject to
reimbursement by Lessee of Lessee's Share of such taxes in accordance with the
provisions of paragraph 4.2, except as otherwise provided in paragraph 10.2.
10.2 Additional Improvements. Lessee shall not be responsible for paying
any increase in real property tax specified in the tax assessor's records and
work sheets as being caused by additional improvements placed upon the Office
Building Project by other Lessees or by Lessor for the exclusive enjoyment of
any other Lessee. Lessee shall, however, pay to Lessor at the time that
Operating Expenses are payable under paragraph 4.2(c) the entirety of any
increase in real property tax if assessed solely by reason of additional
improvements placed upon the Premises by Lessee or at Lessee's request.
10.3 Definition of "Real Property Tax". As used herein, the term "real
property tax" shall include any form of real estate tax or assessment, general,
special, ordinary or extraordinary, and any license fee, commercial rental tax,
improvement bond or bonds, levy or tax (other than inheritance, personal income
or estate taxes) imposed on the Office Building Project or any portion thereof
by any authority having the direct or indirect power to tax, including any city,
county, state or federal government, or any school, agricultural, sanitary,
fire, street, drainage or other improvement district thereof, as against any
legal or equitable interest of Lessor in the Office Building Project or in any
portion thereof, as against Lessor's right to rent or other income therefrom,
and as against Lessor's business of leasing the Office Building Project. The
term "real property tax" shall also include any tax, fee, levy, assessment or
charge (i) in substitution of, partially or totally, any tax, fee, levy,
assessment or charge hereinabove included within the definition of "real
property tax," or (ii) the nature of which was hereinbefore included within the
definition of "real property tax," or (iii) which is imposed for a service or
right not charged prior to June 1, 1978, or, if previously charged, has been
increased since June 1, 1978, or (iv) which is imposed as a result of a change
in ownership, as defined by applicable local statutes for property tax purposes,
of the Office Building Project or which is added to a tax or charge hereinbefore
included within the definition of real property tax by reason of such change of
ownership, or (v) which is imposed by reason of this transaction, any
modifications or changes hereto, or any transfers hereof.
10.4 Joint Assessment. If the improvements or property, the taxes for
which are to be paid separately by Lessee under paragraph 10.2 or 10.5 are not
separately assessed, Lessee's portion of that tax shall be equitably determined
by Lessor from the respective valuations assigned in the assessor's work sheets
or such other information (which may include the cost of construction) as may be
reasonably available. Lessor's reasonable determination thereof, in good faith,
shall be conclusive.
10.5 Personal Property Taxes.
(a) Lessee shall pay prior to delinquency all taxes assessed
against and levied upon trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other
personal property of Lessee contained in the Premises or elsewhere.
(b) If any of Lessee's said personal property shall be assessed

to Lessee within ten (10) days after receipt of a written statement setting
forth the taxes applicable to Lessee's property.
11.1 Services Provided by Lessor. Lessor shall provide heating,
ventilation, air conditioning, and janitorial service as reasonably required,
reasonable amounts of electricity for normal lighting and office machines, water

11.2 Services Exclusive to Lessee. Lessee shall pay for all water, gas,
heat, light, power, telephone and other utilities and services specially or
exclusively supplied and/or metered exclusively to the Premises or to Lessee,
together with any taxes thereon. If any such services are not separately metered
to the Premises, Lessee shall pay at Lessor's option, either Lessee's Share or a
reasonable proportion to be determined by Lessor of all charges jointly metered
with other premises in the Building.
11.3 Hours of Service. Said services and utilities shall be provided
during generally accepted business days and hours or such other days or hours as

machinery or equipment in or about the Premises that uses excess water, lighting
or power, or suffer or permit any act that causes extra burden upon the
utilities or services, including but not limited to security services over
standard office usage for the Office Building Project. Lessor shall require
Lessee to reimburse Lessor for any excess expenses or costs that may arise out
of a breach of this subparagraph by Lessee. Lessor may, in its sole discretion,
install at Lessee's expense supplemental equipment and/or separate metering
applicable to Lessee's excess usage or loading.

not be liable in any respect whatsoever for the inadequacy, stoppage,
interruption or discontinuance of any utility or service due to riot, strike,
labor dispute, breakdown, accident, repair or other cause beyond Lessor's
reasonable control or in cooperation with governmental request or directions,
provided Lessor uses reasonable and diligent efforts to reinstate.
12. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
12.1 Lessor's Consent Required. Lessee shall not voluntarily or by
operation of law assign, transfer, mortgage, sublet, or otherwise transfer or
encumber all or any part of Lessee's interest in the Lease or in the Premises,
without Lessor's prior
written consent, which Lessor shall not unreasonably withhold. Lessor shall
respond to Lessee's request for consent hereunder in a timely manner, and any
attempted assignment, transfer, mortgage, encumbrance or subletting without such
consent shall be void, and shall constitute a material default and breach of
this Lease without the need for notice to Lessee under paragraph 13.1. Prior to
any assignment or sublet of the premises or any portion thereof, Lessee shall
notify Lessor in writing of the name and address of the proposed assignee or
sublessee, and deliver to Lessor financial statements of the proposed assignee
or sublessee, a true and complete copy of the proposed assignment agreement(s)
or sublease with said notice, and shall promptly provide any other information
reasonably requested by Lessor to enable Lessor to evaluate the proposed
assignment or sublet. Lessor shall within five (5) business days of the receipt
of complete information as required above, elect to do one of the following:
(1) consent to such proposed assignment or sublease;
(2) refuse such consent which refusal shall be on reasonable
(3) terminate this lease with respect to the portion of the
premises which Lessee desires to assign or sublease, in which case rental paid
by Lessee to Lessor hereunder shall be reduced in the proportion that the square
feet of the premises that Lessee desires to so assign or sublet bears to the
total square feet of the premises leased by Lessee hereunder, and thereafter
neither party shall have any further obligation or liability to the other with
regard to said portion of the premises except for matters which arose prior to
termination and except for obligations that exist upon termination.
"Transfer" within the meaning of this paragraph 12 shall include the transfer or
transfers aggregating: (a) if Lessee is a corporation, more than THIRTY PERCENT
(30%) of the voting stock of such corporation, TO PERSONS WHO WERE NOT
PREVIOUSLY HOLDERS OF THE VOTING STOCK OF SUCH CORPORATION, or (b) if Lessee is
a partnership, more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the profit and loss
participation in such partnership.
12.2 Lessee Affiliate. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 12.1
hereof, Lessee may assign or sublet the Premises, or any portion thereof,
without Lessor's consent, to any corporation which controls, is controlled by or
is under common control with Lessee, or to any corporation resulting from the
merger or consolidation with Lessee, or to any person or entity which acquires
all the assets of Lessee as a going concern of the business that is being
conducted on the Premises, all of which are referred to as "Lessee Affiliate";
provided that before such assignment shall be effective, ______ said assignee
shall assume, in full, the obligations of Lessee under this Lease and (b) Lessor
shall be given written notice of such assignment and assumption. Any such
assignment shall not, in any way, affect or limit the liability of Lessee under
the terms of this Lease even if after such assignment or subletting the terms of
this Lease are materially changed or altered without the consent of Lessee, the
consent of whom shall not be necessary.
12.3 Terms and Conditions Applicable to Assignment and Subletting.
(a) Regardless of Lessor's consent, no assignment or subletting
shall release Lessee of Lessee's obligations hereunder or alter the primary
liability of Lessee to pay the rent and other sums due Lessor hereunder
including Lessee's Share of Operating Expense Increase, and to perform all other
obligations to be performed by Lessee hereunder.
(b) Lessor may accept rent from any person other than Lessee
pending approval or disapproval of such assignment.
(c) Neither a delay in the approval or disapproval of such
assignment or subletting nor the acceptance of rent, shall constitute a waiver
or estoppel of Lessor's right to exercise its remedies for the breach of any of
the terms or conditions of this paragraph 12 or this Lease.
(d) If Lessee's obligations under this Lease have been guaranteed
by third parties, then an assignment or sublease, and Lessor's consent thereto,
shall not be effective unless said guarantors give their written consent to such
sublease and the terms thereof.
(e) The consent by Lessor to any assignment or subletting shall not
constitute a consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting by Lessee or to
any subsequent or successive assignment or subletting by the sublessee. However,
Lessor may consent to subsequent sublettings and assignments of the sublease or
any amendments or modifications thereto without notifying Lessee or anyone else
liable on the Lease or sublease and without obtaining their consent and such
action shall not relieve such persons from liability under this Lease or said
sublease; however, such persons shall not be responsible to the extent any such
amendment or modification enlarges or increases the obligations of the Lessee or
sublessee under this Lease or such sublease.
(f) Lessor's written consent to any assignment or subletting of the
Premises by Lessee shall not constitute an acknowledgment that no default then
exists under this Lease of the obligations to be performed by Lessee nor shall
such consent be deemed a waiver of any then existing default, except as may be
otherwise stated by Lessor at the time.
(g) The discovery of the fact that any financial statement relied
upon by Lessor in giving its consent to an assignment or subletting was
materially false shall, at Lessor's election, render Lessor's said consent null
12.4 Additional Terms and Conditions Applicable to Subletting.
Regardless of Lessor's consent, the following terms and conditions shall apply
to any subletting by Lessee of all or any part of the Premises and shall be
deemed included in all subleases under this Lease whether or not expressly
(a) Lessee hereby assigns and transfers to Lessor all of Lessee's
interest in all rentals and income arising from any sublease heretofore or
hereafter made by Lessee, and Lessor may collect such rent and income and apply
same toward Lessee's obligations under this Lease; provided, however, that until
a default shall occur in the performance of Lessee's obligations under this
Lease, Lessee may receive, collect and enjoy the rents accruing under such
sublease. Lessor shall not, by reason of this or any other assignment of such
sublease to Lessor nor by reason of the collection of the rents from a
sublessee, be deemed liable to the sublessee for any failure of Lessee to
perform and comply with any of Lessee's obligations to such sublessee under such
sublease Lessee hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs any such sublessee,
upon receipt of a written notice from Lessor stating that a default exists in
the performance of Lessee's obligations under this Lease to pay to Lessor the
rents due and to become due under the sublease. Lessee agrees that such
sublessee shall have the right to rely upon any such statement and request from
Lessor, and that such sublessee shall pay such rents to Lessor without any
obligation or right to inquire as to whether such default exists and
notwithstanding any notice from or claim from Lessee to the contrary. Lessee
shall have no right or claim against said sublessee or Lessor for any such rents
so paid by said sublessee to Lessor.
(b) No sublease entered into by Lessee shall be effective unless
and until it has been approved in writing by
Lessor. In entering into any sublease, Lessee shall use only such form of
sublessee as is satisfactory to Lessor, and once approved by Lessor, such
sublease shall not be changed or modified without Lessor's prior written
consent. Any sublease shall, by reason of entering into a sublease under this
Lease, be deemed, for the benefit of Lessor, to have assumed and agreed to
conform and comply with each and every obligation herein to be performed by
Lessee other than such obligations as are contrary to or inconsistent with
provisions contained in a sublease to which Lessor has expressly consented in
(c) In the event Lessee shall default in the performance of its
obligations under this Lease, Lessor at its option and without any obligation to
do so, may require any sublessee to attorn to Lessor, in which event Lessor
shall undertake the obligations of Lessee under such sublease from the time of
the exercise of said option to the termination of such sublease; provided,
however, Lessor shall not be liable for any prepaid rents or security deposit
paid by such sublessee to Lessee or for any other prior defaults of Lessee under
(d) No sublessee shall further assign or sublet all or any part of
the Premises without Lessor's prior written consent.
(e) With respect to any subletting to which Lessor has consented,
Lessor agrees to deliver a copy of any notice of default by Lessee to the
sublessee. Such sublessee shall have the right to cure a default of Lessee
within three (3) days after service of said notice of default upon such
sub-lessee, and the sublessee shall have a right of reimbursement and offset
from and against Lessee for any such defaults cured by the sublessee.
12.5 Lessor's Expenses. In the event Lessee shall assign or sublet the
Premises or request the consent of Lessor to any assignment or subletting or if
Lessee shall request the consent of Lessor for any act Lessee proposes to do
then Lessee shall pay Lessor's reasonable costs and expenses incurred in
connection therewith, including attorneys', architects', engineers' or other
12.6 Conditions to Consent. Lessor reserves the right to condition any
approval to assign or sublet upon Lessor's determination that (a) the proposed
assignee or sublessee shall conduct a business on the Premises of a quality
substantially equal to that of Lessee and consistent with the general character
of the other occupants of the Office Building Project and not in violation of
any exclusives or rights then held by other tenants, and (b) the proposed
assignee or sublessee be at least as financially responsible as Lessee was
expected to be at the time of the execution of this Lease or of such assignment
or subletting, whichever is greater.
12.7 Surplus Rent. To the extent that the aggregate amount of any rental
to be made by the proposed assignee, transferee or sublessee to Tenant exceeds
the sum of (i) the aggregate amount of the monthly Base Rent payable by Tenant
to Landlord during the term of such sublease, transfer or assignment or the
remaining Term of the Lease, whichever expires earlier, (ii) the amount of any
commissions payable in connection with such sublease, transfer or assignment,
(iii) the cost of any alterations or improvements reasonably requested to be
installed in connection with such sublease, transfer or assignment, and (iv)
Lessee's reasonable attorney's fees, such excess amount shall be amortized
ratably over the term of such sublease, transfer or assignment or the remaining
Term of the Lease, whichever expires earlier, and FIFTY PERCENT (50%) of such
amortized portion of such excess amount shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord on
the first day of each month during the applicable term.
13. DEFAULT; REMEDIES.
13.1 Default. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events
shall constitute a material default of this Lease by Lessee:
(a) The vacation or abandonment of the Premises by Lessee. Vacation
of the Premises shall include the failure to occupy the Premises for a
continuous period of sixty (60) days or more, whether or not the rent is paid.

provisions of paragraphs 7.3(a), (b) or (d) (alterations), 12.1 (assignment or

DAYS AFTER DISCOVERY TIME.
(c) The failure by Lessee to make any payment of rent or any other
payment required to be made by Lessee hereunder, as and when due, where such
failure shall continue for a period of three (3) days after written notice
thereof from Lessor to Lessee. In the event that Lessor serves Lessee with a
Notice to Pay Rent or Quit pursuant to applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes
such Notice to Pay Rent or Quit shall also constitute the notice required by
(d) The failure by Lessee to observe or perform any of the
covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease to be observed or performed by
Lessee other than those referenced in subparagraphs (b) and (c) above, where
such failure shall continue for a period of thirty (30) days after written
notice thereof from Lessor to Lessee; provided, however, that if the nature of
Lessee's noncompliance is such that more than thirty (30) days are reasonably
required for its cure, then Lessee shall not be deemed to be in default if
Lessee commenced such cure within said thirty (30) day period and thereafter
diligently pursues such cure to completion. To the extent permitted by law, such
thirty (30) day notice shall constitute the sole and exclusive notice required
to be given to Lessee under applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes.
(e) (i) The making by Lessee of any general arrangement or general
assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) Lessee becoming a "debtor" as
defined in 11 U.S.C. Section101 or any successor statute thereto (unless, in the

substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's
interest in this Lease. where possession is not restored to Lessee within thirty
(30) days; or (iv) the attachment, execution or other judicial seizure of
substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's
interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within thirty (30)
days. In the event that any provision of this paragraph 13.1(e) is contrary to
any applicable law, such provision shall be of no force or effect.
(f) The discovery by Lessor that any financial statement given to
Lessor by Lessee, or its successor in interest or by any guarantor of Lessee's
obligation hereunder, was materially false.
13.2 Remedies. In the event of any material default or breach of this
Lease by Lessee, Lessor may at any time thereafter, with or without notice or
demand and without limiting Lessor in the exercise of any right or remedy which
Lessor or may have by reason of such default:
(a) Terminate Lessee's right to possession of the Premises by any
lawful means, in which case this Lease and the term hereof shall terminate and
Lessee shall immediately surrender possession of the Premises to Lessor. In such
event Lessor shall be entitled to recover from Lessee all damages incurred by
Lessor by reason of Lessee's default including, but not limited to, the cost of
recovering possession of the Premises; expenses of reletting, including
necessary renovation and alteration of the Premises, reasonable attorneys' fees,
and any real estate commission actually paid; the worth at the time of award by
the court having jurisdiction thereof of the amount by which the unpaid rent for
the balance of the term after the time of such award exceeds the amount of such
rental loss for the same period that Lessee proves could be reasonably avoided;
that portion of the leasing commission paid by Lessor pursuant to paragraph 15
applicable to the unexpired term of this Lease.
(b) Maintain Lessee's right to possession in which case this Lease
shall continue in effect whether or not Lessee shall have vacated or abandoned
the Premises. In such event Lessor shall be entitled to enforce all of Lessor's
rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover the rent as
it becomes due hereunder.
(c) Pursue any other remedy now or hereafter available to Lessor
under the laws or judicial decisions of the state wherein the Premises are
located. Unpaid installments of rent and other unpaid monetary obligations of
Lessee under the terms of this Lease shall bear interest from the date due at
the maximum rate then allowable by law.
13.3 Default by Lessor. Lessor shall not be in default unless Lessor
fails to perform obligations required of Lessor within a reasonable time, but in
no event later than thirty (30) days after written notice by Lessee to Lessor
and to the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises
whose name and address shall have theretofore been furnished to Lessee in
writing, specifying wherein Lessor has failed to perform such obligation;
provided, however, that if the nature of Lessor's obligation is such that more
than thirty (30) days are required for performance then Lessor shall not be in
default if Lessor commences performance within such 30-day period and thereafter
diligently pursues the same to completion.
13.4 Late Charges. Lessee hereby acknowledges that late payment by
Lessee to Lessor of Base Rent, Lessee's Share of Operating Expense Increase or
other sums due hereunder will cause Lessor to incur costs not contemplated by
this Lease, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain.
Such costs include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges,
and late charges which may be imposed on Lessor by the terms of any mortgage or
trust deed covering the Office Building Project. Accordingly, if any installment
of Base Rent, Operating Expense Increase, or any other sum due from Lessee shall
not be received by Lessor or Lessor's designee within ten (10) days after such
amount shall be due, then, without any requirement for notice to Lessee, Lessee
shall pay to Lessor a late charge equal to 6% of such overdue amount. The
parties hereby agree that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable
estimate of the costs Lessor will incur by reason of late payment by Lessee.
Acceptance of such late charge by Lessor shall in no event constitute a waiver
of Lessee's default with respect to such overdue amount, nor prevent Lessor from
exercising any of the other rights and remedies granted hereunder.
14. CONDEMNATION. If the Premises or any portion thereof or the Office Building
Project are taken under the power of eminent domain, or sold under the threat of
the exercise of said power (all of which are herein called "condemnation"), this
Lease shall terminate as to the part so taken as of the date the condemning
authority takes title or possession, whichever first occurs; provided that if so
much of the Premises or the Office Building Project are taken by such
condemnation as would substantially and adversely affect the operation and
profitability of Lessee's business conducted from the Premises, Lessee shall
have the option, to be exercised only in writing within thirty (30) days after
Lessor shall have given Lessee written notice of such taking (or in the absence
of such notice, within thirty (30) days after the condemning authority shall
have taken possession), to terminate this Lease as of the date the condemning
authority takes such possession. If Lessee does not terminate this Lease in
accordance with the foregoing, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect
as to the portion of the Premises remaining, except that the rent and Lessee's
Share of Operating Expense Increase shall be reduced in the proportion that the
floor area of the Premises taken bears to the total floor area of the Premises.
Common Areas taken shall be excluded from the Common Areas usable by Lessee and
no reduction of rent shall occur with respect thereto or by reason thereof.
Lessor shall have the option in its sole discretion to terminate this Lease as
of the taking of possession by the condemning authority, by giving written
notice to Lessee of such election within thirty (30) days after receipt of
notice of a taking by condemnation of any part of the Premises or the Office
Building Project. Any award for the taking of all or any part of the Premises or
the Office Building Project under the power of eminent domain or any payment
made under threat of the exercise of such power shall be the property of Lessor,
whether such award shall be made as compensation for diminution in value of the
leasehold or for the taking of the fee, or as severance damages; provided,
however, that Lessee shall be entitled to any separate award for loss of or
damage to Lessee's trade fixtures, removable personal property and unamortized
tenant improvements that have been paid for by Lessee. For that purpose the cost
of such improvements shall be amortized over the original term of this Lease
excluding any options. In the event that this Lease is not terminated by reason
of such condemnation, Lessor shall to the extent of severance damages received
by Lessor in connection with such condemnation, repair any damage to the
Premises caused by such condemnation except to the extent that Lessee has been
reimbursed therefor by the condemning authority. Lessee shall pay any amount in
excess of such severance damages required to complete such repair.
15. BROKER'S FEE.
(a) The brokers involved in this transaction are KH REALTY 3, INC.
as "listing broker" AND CORNISH & CAREY COMMERCIAL, as "cooperating broker,"
licensed real estate broker(s). A "cooperating broker" is defined as any broker
other than the listing broker entitled to a share of any commission arising
under this Lease. Upon execution of this Lease by both parties, Lessor shall pay
to said brokers jointly, or in such separate shares as they may mutually
designate in writing, a fee as set forth in a separate agreement between Lessor
and said broker(s), or in the event there is no separate agreement between
Lessor and said broker(s), the sum of $ N/A for brokerage services rendered by
said broker(s) to Lessor in this transaction. The commission shall be paid 50%
upon execution of this Lease and 50% upon the commencement of this Lease.
However, in no event shall the
total commission paid exceed $4.00 per square foot to cooperating broker.
(b) Lessor shall have no obligation to pay any additional fee or
commission under any of the following circumstances: (i) it Lessee exercises any
Option, as defined in paragraph 3.9.1 of this Lease, which is granted to Lessee
under this Lease, or any subsequently granted option which is substantially
similar to an Option granted to Lessee under this Lease, or (ii) if Lessee
acquires any rights to the Premises or other premises described in this Lease
which are substantially similar to what Lessee would have acquired had an Option
herein granted to Lessee been exercised, or (iii) if Lessee remains in
possession of the Premises after the expiration of the term of this Lease after
having failed to exercise an Option, or (iv) if said broker(s) are the procuring
cause of any other lease or sale entered into between the parties pertaining to
the Premises and/or any adjacent property in which Lessor has an interest.
(c) Lessor agrees to pay said fee not only on behalf of Lessor but
also on behalf of any person, corporation, association, or other entity having
an ownership interest in said real property or any part thereof, when such fee
is due hereunder. Any transferee of Lessor's interest in this Lease, whether
such transfer is by agreement or by operation of law, shall be deemed to have
assumed Lessor's obligation under this paragraph 15. Each listing and
cooperating broker shall be a third party beneficiary of the provisions of this
paragraph 15 to the extent of their interest in any commission arising under
this Lease and may enforce that right directly against Lessor; provided,
however, that all brokers having a right to any part of such total commission
shall be a necessary party to any suit with respect thereto.
(d) Lessee and Lessor each represent and warrant to the other that
neither has had any dealings with any person, firm, broker or finder (other than
the person(s), if any, whose names are set forth in paragraph 15(a), above) in
connection with the negotiation of this Lease and/or the consummation of the
transaction contemplated hereby, and no other broker or other person, firm or
entity is entitled to any commission or finder's fee in connection with said
transaction and Lessee and Lessor do each hereby indemnify and hold the other
harmless from and against any costs, expenses, attorneys' fees or liability for
compensation or charges which may be claimed by any such unnamed broker, finder
or other similar party by reason of any dealings or actions of the indemnifying
16. ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE.
(a) Each party (as "responding party") shall at any time upon not
less than ten (10) days' prior written notice from the other party ("requesting
party") execute, acknowledge and deliver to the requesting party a statement in
writing (i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and
effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying
that this Lease, as so modified, is in full force and effect) and the date to
which the rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, and (ii)
acknowledging that there are not, to the responding party's knowledge, any
uncured defaults on the part of the requesting party, or specifying such
defaults if any are claimed. Any such statement may be conclusively relied upon
by any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the Office Building Project or
of the business of Lessee.
(b) At the requesting party's option, the failure to deliver such
statement within such time shall be a material default of this Lease by the
party who is to respond, without any further notice to such party, or it shall
be conclusive upon such party that (i) this Lease is in full force and effect,
without modification except as may be represented by the requesting party, (ii)
there are no uncured defaults in the requesting party's performance, and (iii)
if Lessor is the requesting party, not more than one month's rent has been paid
(c) If Lessor desires to finance, refinance, or sell the Office
Building Project, or any part thereof, Lessee hereby agrees to deliver to any
lender or purchaser designated by Lessor such financial statements of Lessee as
may be reasonably required by such lender or purchaser. Such statements shall
include the past three (3) years' financial statements of Lessee. All such
financial statements shall be received by Lessor and such lender or purchaser in
confidence and shall be used only for the purposes herein set forth.
17. LESSOR'S LIABILITY. The term "Lessor" as used herein shall mean only the
owner or owners, at the time in question, of the fee title or a lessee's
interest in a ground lease of the Office Building Project, and except as
expressly provided in paragraph 15, in the event of any transfer of such title
or interest, Lessor herein named (and in case of any subsequent transfers then
the grantor) shall be relieved from and after the date of such transfer of all
liability as respects Lessor's obligations thereafter to be performed, provided
that any funds in the hands of Lessor or the then grantor at the time of such
transfer, in which Lessee has an interest, shall be delivered to the grantee.
The obligations contained in this Lease to be performed by Lessor shall, subject
as aforesaid, be binding on Lessor's successors and assigns, only during their
resistive periods of ownership.
18. SEVERABILITY. The invalidity of any provision of this Lease as determined
by a court of competent jurisdiction shall in no way affect the validity of any
other provision hereof.
19. INTEREST ON PAST-DUE OBLIGATIONS. Except as expressly herein provided, any
amount due to Lessor not paid when due shall bear interest at the maximum rate
then allowable by law or judgments from the date due. Payment of such interest
shall not excuse or cure any default by Lessee under this Lease; provided,
however, that interest shall not be payable on late charges incurred by Lessee
nor on any amounts upon which late charges are paid by Lessee.
20. TIME OF ESSENCE. Time is of the essence with respect to the obligations to
be performed under this Lease.
21. ADDITIONAL RENT. All monetary obligations of Lessee to Lessor under the
terms of this Lease, including but not limited to Lessee's Share of Operating
Expense Increase and any other expenses payable by Lessee hereunder shall be
deemed to be rent.
22. INCORPORATION OF PRIOR AGREEMENTS; AMENDMENTS. This Lease contains all
agreements of the parties with respect to any matter mentioned herein. No prior
or contemporaneous agreement or understanding pertaining to any such matter
shall be effective. This Lease may be modified in writing only, signed by the
parties in interest at the time of the modification. Except as otherwise stated
in this Lease, Lessee hereby acknowledges that neither the real estate broker
listed in paragraph 15 hereof nor any cooperating broker on this transaction nor
the Lessor or any employee or agents of any of said persons has made any oral or
written warranties or representations to Lessee relative to the condition or use
by Lessee of the Premises or the Office Building Project and Lessee acknowledges
that Lessee assumes all responsibility regarding the Occupational Safety Health
Act, the legal use and adaptability of the Premises and the compliance thereof
with all applicable laws and regulations in effect during the term of this
23. NOTICES. All notices, demands, requests and other communications required
hereunder (a) shall be in writing, (b) shall be deemed to be properly addressed
and transmitted if mailed by United States registered or certified mail, with
return receipt request, postage prepaid, or by United States Express Mail, or if
sent by a national courier service or if personally served, and the same if sent
to a party at its address set forth on the signature page hereto. Any notice,
demand, request or other communication required hereunder will be deemed
delivered (a) upon personal delivery, if personally served, or (b) if mailed or
if sent by courier, upon receipt (as reflected in the records of the delivering
entity) or upon the addressee's refusal to accept delivery (as reflected in the
records of the delivering entity). Any party may designate a change of address
by written notice to the other, given at least ten (10) days before such change
of address is to be come effective. Absent delivery to a party of the change of
address of another party, no party shall be required to inquire as to the
continuing correctness of the last address delivered to it for the other party.
24. WAIVERS. No waiver by Lessor of any provision hereof shall be deemed a
waiver of any other provision hereof or of any subsequent breach by Lessee of
the same or any other provision. Lessor's consent to, or approval of, any act
shall not be deemed to render unnecessary the obtaining of Lessor's consent to
or approval of any subsequent act by Lessee. The acceptance of rent hereunder by
Lessor shall not be a waiver of any preceding breach by Lessee of any provision
hereof, other than the failure of Lessee to pay the particular rent so accepted,
regardless of Lessor's knowledge of such preceding breach at the time of
acceptance of such rent.
25. RECORDING. Either Lessor or Lessee shall, upon request of the other,
execute, acknowledge and deliver to the other a "short form" memorandum of this
Lease for recording purposes.
26. HOLDING OVER. If Lessee, with Lessor's consent, remains in possession of
the Premises or any part thereof after the expiration of the term hereof, such
occupancy shall be a tenancy from month to month upon all the provisions of this
Lease pertaining to the obligations of Lessee, except that the rent payable
shall be two hundred percent (200%) of the rent payable immediately preceding
the termination date of this Lease, and all Options, if any, granted under the
terms of this Lease shall be deemed terminated and be of no further effect
during said month to month tenancy.
27. CUMULATIVE REMEDIES. No remedy or election hereunder shall be deemed
exclusive but shall, wherever possible, be cumulative with all other remedies at
law or in equity.
28. COVENANTS AND CONDITIONS. Each provision of this Lease performable by
Lessee shall be deemed both a covenant and a condition.
29. BINDING EFFECT; CHOICE OF LAW. Subject to any provisions hereof restricting
assignment or subletting by Lessee and subject to the provisions of paragraph
17, this Lease shall bind the parties, their personal representatives,
successors and assigns. This Lease shall be governed by the laws of the State
where the Office Building Project is located and any litigation concerning this
Lease between the parties hereto shall be initiated in the county in which the
Office Building Project is located.
(a) This Lease, and any Option or right of first refusal granted hereby,
at Lessor's option, shall be subordinate to any ground lease, mortgage, deed of
trust, or any other hypothecation or security now or hereafter placed upon the
Office Building Project and to any and all advances made on the security thereof
and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions
thereof. Notwithstanding such subordination, Lessee's right to quiet possession
of the Premises shall not be disturbed if Lessee is not in default and so long
as Lessee shall pay the rent and observe and perform all of the provisions of
this Lease, unless this Lease is otherwise terminated pursuant to its terms. If
any mortgagee, trustee or ground lessor shall elect to have this Lease and any
Options granted hereby prior to the lien of its mortgage, deed of trust or
ground lease, and shall give written notice thereof to Lessee, this Lease and
such Options shall be deemed prior to such mortgage, deed of trust or ground
lease, whether this Lease or such Options are dated prior or subsequent to the
date of said mortgage, deed of trust or ground lease or the date of recording
(b) Lessee agrees to execute any documents required to effectuate an
attornment, a subordination, or to make this Lease or any Option granted herein
prior to the lien of any mortgage, deed of trust or ground lease, as the case
may be. Lessee's failure to execute such documents within ten (10) days after
written demand shall constitute a material default by Lessee hereunder without
further notice to Lessee or, at Lessor's option, Lessor shall execute such
documents on behalf of Lessee as Lessee's attorney-in-fact. Lessee does hereby
make, constitute and irrevocably appoint Lessor as Lessee's attorney-in-fact and
in Lessee's name, place and stead, to execute such documents in accordance with
this paragraph 30(b).
31. ATTORNEYS' FEES.
31.1 If either party or the broker(s) named herein bring an action to
enforce the terms hereof or declare rights hereunder, the prevailing party in
any such action, trial or appeal thereon, shall be entitled to his reasonable
attorneys' fees to be paid by the losing party as fixed by the court in the same
or a separate suit, and whether or not such action is pursued to decision or
judgment. The provisions of this paragraph shall inure to the benefit of the
broker named herein who seeks to enforce a right hereunder.
31.2 The attorneys' fee award shall not be computed in accordance with
any court fee schedule, but shall be such as to
fully reimburse all attorneys' fees reasonably incurred in good faith.
31.3 Lessor shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys' fees and all
other costs and expenses incurred in the preparation and service of notice of
default and consultations in connection therewith, whether or not a legal
transaction is subsequently commenced in connection with such default.
32. LESSOR'S ACCESS.
32.1 Lessor and Lessor's agents shall have the right to enter the
Premises at reasonable times for the purpose of inspecting the same, performing
any services required of Lessor, showing the same to prospective purchasers,
lenders, or lessees, taking such safety measures, erecting such scaffolding or
other necessary structures, making such alterations, repairs, improvements or
additions to the Premises or to the Office Building Project as Lessor may
reasonably deem necessary or desirable and the erecting, using and maintaining
of utilities, services, pipes and conduits through the Premises and/or other
premises as long as there is no material adverse effect to Lessee's use of the
Premises. Lessor may at any time place on or about the Premises or the Building
any ordinary "For Sale" signs and Lessor may at any time during the last 120
days of the term hereof place on or about the Premises any ordinary "For Lease"
32.2 All activities of Lessor pursuant to this paragraph shall be
without abatement of rent, nor shall Lessor have any liability to Lessee for the
32.3 Lessor shall have the right to retain keys to the Premises and to
unlock all doors in or upon the Premises other than to files, vaults and sales,
and in the case of emergency to enter the Premises by any reasonably appropriate
means, and any such entry shall not be deemed a forceable or unlawful entry or
detainer of the Premises or an eviction. Lessee waives any charges for damages
or injuries or interference with Lessee's properly or business in connection
33. AUCTIONS. Lessee shall not conduct, nor permit to be conducted, either
voluntarily or involuntarily, any auction upon the Premises or the Common Areas
without first having obtained Lessor's prior written consent. Notwithstanding
anything to the contrary in this Lease, Lessor shall not be obligated to
exercise any standard of reasonableness in determining whether to grant such
consent. The holding of any auction on the Premises or Common Areas in violation
of this paragraph shall constitute a material default of this Lease.
34. SIGNS. Lessee shall not place any sign upon the Premises or the Office
Building Project without Lessor's prior written consent. Under no circumstances
shall Lessee place a sign on any roof of the Office Building Project.
35. MERGER. The voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Lessee, or a
mutual cancellation thereof, or a termination by Lessor, shall not work a
merger, and shall at the option of Lessor, terminate all or any existing
subtenancies or may, at the option of Lessor, operate as an assignment to Lessor
of any or all of such subtenancies.
36. CONSENTS. Except for paragraphs 33 (auctions) and 34 (signs) hereof,
wherever in this Lease the consent of one party is required to an act of the
other party such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
37. GUARANTOR. In the event that there is a guarantor of this Lease, said
guarantor shall have the same obligations as Lessee, under this Lease.
38. QUIET POSSESSION. Upon Lessee paying the rent for the Premises and
observing and performing all of the covenants, conditions and provisions on
Lessee's part to be observed and performed hereunder, Lessee shall have quiet
possession of the Premises for the entire term hereof subject to all of the
provisions of this Lease. The individuals executing this Lease on behalf of
Lessor represent and warrant to Lessee that they are fully authorized and
legally capable of executing this Lease on behalf of Lessor and that such
execution is binding upon all parties holding an ownership interest in the
Office Building Project.
39.1 Definition. As used in this paragraph the word "Option" has the
following meaning: (1) the right or option to extend the term of this Lease or

refusal to purchase other property of Lessor or the right of first offer to
purchase other property of Lessor.
39.2 Options Personal. Each Option granted to Lessee in this Lease is
personal to the original Lessee and may be exercised only by the original Lessee
while occupying the Premises who does so without the intent of thereafter
assigning this Lease or subletting the Premises or any portion thereof, and may
not be exercised or be assigned, voluntarily or involuntarily, by or to any
person or entity other than Lessee; provided, however, that an Option may be
exercised by or assigned to any Lessee Affiliate as defined in paragraph 12.2 of
this Lease. The Options, if any, herein granted to Lessee are not assignable
separate and apart from this Lease, nor may any Option be separated from this
Lease in any manner, either by reservation or otherwise.
39.3 Multiple Options. In the event that Lessee has any multiple options
to extend or renew this Lease a later option cannot be exercised unless the
prior option to extend or renew this Lease has been so exercised.
39.4 Effect of Default on Options.
(a) Lessee shall have no right to exercise an Option,
notwithstanding any provision in the grant of Option to the contrary, (i) during
the time commencing from the date Lessor gives to Lessee a notice of default
pursuant to paragraph 13.1(c) or 13.1(d) and continuing until the noncompliance
alleged in said notice of default is cured, or (ii) during the period of time
commencing on the day after a monetary obligation to Lessor is due from Lessee

obligation is paid, or (iii) In the event that Lessor has given to Lessee three
or more notices of default under paragraph 13.1(c), or paragraph 13.1(d),
whether or not the defaults are cured, during the 12 month period of time
immediately prior to the time that Lessee attempts to exercise the subject
Option, (iv) if Lessee has committed any non-curable breach, including without
limitation those described in paragraph 13.1(b), or is otherwise in default of
any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Lease.
(b) The period of time within which an Option may be exercised
shall not be extended or enlarged by reason of Lessee's inability to exercise an
Option because of the provisions of paragraph 39.4(a).
(c) All rights of Lessee under the provisions of an Option shall
terminate and be of no further force or effect, notwithstanding Lessee's due and
timely exercise of the Option, if, after such exercise and during the term of

for a period of thirty (30) days after such obligation becomes due (without any
necessity of Lessor to give notice thereof to Lessee), or (ii) Lessee fails to

described in paragraph 13.1(b), or is otherwise in default of any of the terms,
covenants and conditions of this Lease.
39.5 Exercise Notice. No exercise of any Option right hereunder shall be
effective unless the required notice is received by the party to whom it is sent
strictly in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph 23 herein. The risk of
non-delivery shall be on the sender of the Option notice.
40. SECURITY MEASURES-LESSOR'S RESERVATIONS.
40.1 Lessee hereby acknowledges that Lessor shall have no obligation
whatsoever to provide guard service or other security measures for the benefit
of the Premises or the Office Building Project. Lessee assumes all
responsibility for the protection of Lessee, its agents, and invitees and the
property of Lessee and of Lessee's agents and invitees from acts of third
parties. Nothing herein contained shall prevent Lessor, at Lessor's sole option,
from providing security protection for the Office Building Project or any part
thereof, in which event the cost thereof shall be included within the deduction
of Operating Expenses, as set forth in paragraph 4.2(b).
40.2 Lessor shall have the following rights:
(a) To change the name, address or title of the Office Building
Project or building in which the Premises are located upon not less than 90 days
prior written notice;

graphics on the door of the Premises and such portions of the Common Areas as
Lessor shall reasonably deem appropriate;
(c) To permit any lessee the exclusive right to conduct any
business as long as such exclusive does not conflict with any rights expressly

deems necessary or advisable upon the roof, exterior of the buildings or the
Office Building Project or on pole signs in the Common Areas;
40.3 Lessee shall not:

Building or the Office Building Project or their name(s) in connection with

roof of the Building.
41.1 Lessor reserves to itself the right, from time to time, to grant
such easements, rights and dedications that Lessor deems necessary or desirable,
and to cause the recordation of Parcel Maps and restrictions, so long as such
easements, rights, dedications Maps and restrictions do not unreasonably
interfere with the use of the Premises by Lessee. Lessee shall sign any of the
aforementioned documents upon request of Lessor and failure to do so shall
constitute a material default of this Lease by Lessee without the need for
further notice to Lessee.
41.2 The obstruction of Lessee's view, air, or light by any structure
erected in the vicinity of the Building, whether by Lessor or third parties,
shall in no way affect this Lease or impose any liability upon Lessor.
42. PERFORMANCE UNDER PROTEST. If at any time a dispute shall arise as to any
amount or sum of money to be paid by one party to the other under the provisions
hereof, the party against whom the obligation to pay the money is asserted shall
have the right to make payment "under protest" and such payment shall not be
regarded as a voluntary payment, and there shall survive the right on the part
of said party to institute suit for recovery of such sum. If it shall be
adjudged that there was no legal obligation on the part of said party to pay
such sum or any part thereof, said party shall be entitled to recover such sum
or so much thereof as it was not legally required to pay under the provisions of
43. AUTHORITY. If Lessee is a corporation, trust, or general or limited
partnership, Lessee, and each individual executing this Lease on behalf of such
entity represent and warrant that such individual is duly authorized to execute
and deliver this Lease on behalf of said entity. If Lessee is a corporation,
trust or partnership, Lessee shall, within thirty (30) days after execution of
this Lease, deliver to Lessor evidence of such authority satisfactory to Lessor.
44. CONFLICT. Any conflict between the printed provisions, Exhibits or Addenda
of this Lease and the typewritten or handwritten provisions, if any, shall be
controlled by the typewritten or handwritten provisions.
45. NO OFFER. Preparation of this Lease by Lessor or Lessor's agent and
submission of same to Lessee shall not be deemed an offer to Lessee to lease.
