Parties. This Lease, dated for reference purposes, and ---------------------- effective as of February 25, 2000, is made by and between PACIFIC SHORES CENTER LLC, or assignee, ("Lessor") and AT HOME CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation, dba Excite@Home ("Lessee"). ARTICLE II ---------- PREMISES -------- Section 2.01. Demise of Premises. Lessor hereby leases to Lessee and -------------------------------- Lessee leases from Lessor for the term, at the rental, and upon all of the terms and conditions set forth herein, Premises consisting of one building ("Building") of ten free standing, office and research and development buildings ("Buildings") to be constructed by Lessor on real property situated in Redwood City, County of San Mateo, State of California and commonly known as Pacific Shores Center which Lessor is in the process of acquiring (the "Property"). The Building will be five stories tall and will consist of approximately one hundred fifty seven thousand two hundred seventy (157,270) rentable square feet, as more particularly described and depicted herein in Exhibit "A." The actual rentable square footage of the Building (the "Rentable Area") will be determined and certified by Lessor's architect by a method described as "dripline," whereby the measurement encompasses the outermost perimeter of the constructed building, including every projection thereof and all area beneath each such projection, whether or not enclosed, with no deduction for any inward deviation of structure and with the measurement being made floor by floor, but beginning from the top of the Building provided that, Lessee shall have the right, to be exercised prior to Commencement Date, to measure the "as-built" Building to confirm that the aforesaid dripline methodology was accurately utilized by Lessor's architect. The Building and appurtenances described herein, the Property, and all other improvements to be built on the Property are together designated as the "Project." The Building leased hereunder, commonly known as Building 8 - Pacific Shores Center, Redwood City, California, and its appurtenances described herein are herein designated as the "Premises." Section 2.02. Common Area. During the Lease Term, Lessee shall have the ------------------------- non-exclusive right to use the Common Area defined herein. Lessor reserves the right to modify the Common Area, including reducing the size or changing the use, configuration and elements thereof in its sole discretion and to close or restrict access from time to time for repair, maintenance or to prevent a dedication thereof, provided that Lessee nonetheless shall have access to parking and the Premises during such activities. Lessor further reserves the right to establish, repeal and amend from time to time rules and regulations for the use of the Common Area and to grant reciprocal easements or other rights to use the Common Area to owners of other property provided that no amendment to the rules and regulations shall unreasonably interfere with Lessee's use of the Premises or unreasonably increase Lessee's share of Operating Expenses and provided further, to the extent of any conflict between this Lease and such amended Common Area rules and regulations, this Lease controls. . "Common Area" includes, without limitation, all portions of the Property other than the Building, including landscaping, 2 sidewalks, walkways, driveways, curbs, parking lots (including striping), roadways within the Project, sprinkler systems, lighting, surface water drainage systems, an amenities/athletic facility to be available for use by Lessee's employees (the "Amenities/Athletic Facility"), as well as baseball and soccer fields, a water front park, and a perimeter walking/biking trial, and, to the extent required by government authorities having jurisdiction over Lessor's development of the Project, amphitheater, marine life resource center, retreat and conference center, child care center and such further portions of the Project or additional or different facilities as Lessor may from time to time designate or install or make available for the use by Lessee in common with others. Section 2.03. Parking. Lessor shall provide Lessee with parking spaces ---------------------- within the Common Area in the ratio to space within the Building as required by law, which is three (3) spaces per one thousand (1,000) square feet of interior space within the Building. In the event Lessor elects or is required by any law to limit or control parking at the Premises, whether by validation of parking tickets or any other method of assessment, Lessee agrees to participate in such validation or assessment program under such reasonable rules and regulations as are from time to time established by Lessor. Lessor agrees that Lessee's access to parking shall not be unreasonably limited beyond any requirement of law by any such rules and regulations and the burden of any such limitation or control imposed by law on the Project as a whole shall not be allocated to Lessee to an extent greater than required by such law. Said parking shall be provided at no additional cost except as expressly provided herein in Article VI for reimbursement of repair, replacement and maintenance costs and expenses, and in Article IX for payment or reimbursement of any real property taxes including governmental or public authority charges, fees or impositions of any nature hereafter imposed. Section 2.04. Construction. --------------------------- (a) Government Approvals. Lessor shall diligently pursue obtaining -------------------- governmental approval of a Site Plan and Building design and elevations with respect to the development of the Premises, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibit "A." The parties acknowledge and agree that the final footprint and elevations of the Building may vary from those attached as Exhibit "A" because the plans and specifications will undergo a plancheck process with the City of Redwood City and Lessor will make such revisions as are required or are otherwise deemed necessary or appropriate by Lessor, provided however, that nothing herein shall be deemed to relieve Lessor from the duty to develop the Building substantially in compliance with Exhibit "A." (b) Construction of Shell Building. Lessor, utilizing Rudolph & Sletten ------------------------------ (or such alternate as Lessor in its sole discretion may select) as general contractor ("General Contractor"), shall construct the "Building Shell" (as defined in the attached Exhibit "D") substantially in accordance with (i) plans and specifications to be attached as Exhibit "B" and (ii) all existing applicable municipal, local, state and federal laws, statutes, rules, regulations and ordinances. Lessor shall pay all costs of constructing the Building Shell. (c) Construction of Tenant Improvements. All improvements not included ----------------------------------- within the scope of the Building Shell shall be deemed "Tenant Improvements." Lessor, using the General 3 Contractor, shall construct the Tenant Improvements and shall contribute the Tenant Improvement Allowance towards the payment of same and Lessee shall pay all costs associated with same in excess of the Tenant Improvement Allowance (d) Tenant Improvement Plans and Cost Estimate. Lessee shall work ------------------------------------------ with Lessor's architect to develop interior schematic drawings and Lessee shall approve final interior schematic drawings for the Tenant Improvement no later than July 1, 2000. Lessee shall work with Lessor's architect to develop working drawings outlining, among other things, Lessee's wall layout, detailed electrical and air conditioning requirements and finishes ("Working Drawings") and Lessee shall approve final Working Drawings on or before September 1, 2000. The cost of the interior schematic drawings and Working Drawings shall be a Tenant Improvement cost. Based on this information, Landlord shall cause the General Contractor to prepare and deliver to Lessee a budget for the Tenant Improvements ("Budget"). Lessee shall approve the Budget (or modify the same with Lessor's consent), in writing, within fourteen (14) days thereafter. The Working Drawings and Budget must be approved by Lessor in writing and be of quality equal to or greater than the Interior Specifications Standards set forth in Exhibit "C" and must encompass the build-out of the entire Premises. Once the Budget is approved, Lessor shall enter into a guaranteed maximum price contract with the General Contractor for the construction of the Tenant Improvements, which maximum price shall not exceed the approved Budget. (e) Cost Responsibilities. Attached as Exhibit "C" to this Lease is a --------------------- Work Letter Agreement for Tenant Improvements, and Exhibit "D," Cost Responsibilities of Lessor and Lessee, which together with this Section 2.04, describe the planning and payment responsibilities of the Lessor and Lessee with respect to the construction of the Shell Building and Tenant Improvements at the Premises. All approved Tenant Improvements shall be constructed in accordance with a construction schedule approved by Lessor and no portion of the Building interior shall remain unimproved. (f) Tenant Improvement Allowance. Lessor shall provide to Lessee semi- ---------------------------- improved "cold" shell facilities as described in Exhibit "D" attached and a Tenant Improvement Allowance of $25.00 per square foot to be used for the Tenant Improvements outlined in Exhibit "D," all as outlined in the Tenant Improvement Work Letter attached as Exhibit "C." Subcontracts for all Tenant Improvement Work shall be obtained by a sealed competitive bid process (involving at least two qualified bidders) wherever practical and as to work done without such process, Lessor or the General Contractor shall provide reasonable assurance to Lessee that the cost and expense of same is competitive in the industry for first-class workmanship and materials. (g) Payment for Tenant Improvements. Within two (2) business days after ------------------------------- the Budget is approved by Lessor and Lessee, Lessee shall deposit Lessee's share of the amount budgeted for the entire Tenant Improvement construction schedule (together with the cost of any Tenant Improvements already made) with Lessor's construction lender to be held in an escrow account. Lessee's share is the portion of the budgeted amount not paid from the Tenant Improvement Allowance as described in the following sentence. Said construction lender shall issue payments from said account pursuant to the construction contract for the Tenant Improvements with a portion of each payment being taken from the Tenant Improvement 4 Allowance (in the same ratio as the Tenant Improvement Allowance bears to the entire Budget total) and the balance being paid from Lessee's deposit, until the Tenant Improvement Allowance is exhausted, whereupon any remaining payments shall be made 100% by Lessee. Lessor shall manage the construction of the Tenant Improvements for a supervision fee of 4% of the Budget (as the same may change by agreement of the parties) due and payable in nine equal monthly installments beginning on the first day of the calendar month following the calendar month in which the Budget is first approved. (h) Lessee's Fixturing Period. By advance written notice, Lessor shall ------------------------- provide Lessee access to the Premises during the thirty (30) day period prior to the Commencement Date ("Lessee's Fixturing Period") for the purpose of installing furnishings and equipment, e.g. security system, furniture system and phone and data system, provided, that Lessee and Lessee's employees and contractors shall at all times avoid interfering with Lessor's ongoing work to bring the Premises to a substantially completed condition. Except for payment of Base Rent, all terms and provisions of this Lease shall apply during Lessee's Fixturing Period, including, without limitation, Lessee's indemnity and other obligations set forth in Sections 7.07., 7.08. and 17.22. hereof and payment of Additional Rent pursuant to Section 4.05 hereof. ARTICLE III ----------- TERM ---- Section 3.01. Lease Term. ------------------------- (a) Commencement Date. The term of this Lease ("Lease Term") shall be ----------------- for twelve (12) years beginning on the earlier of (i) the date a Certificate of Occupancy (which means for purposes of this Lease, either a Certificate of Occupancy or its equivalent which allows legal occupancy and including, without limitation, a Notice of Substantial Completion) first is issued affecting the Building, or (ii) the date on which Lessee first occupies or conducts business at the Premises (the "Commencement Date") provided that, (i) for each day of delay by Lessee in failing to approve the interior schematic drawings or the Working Drawings when required under Section 2.04(d), or (ii) for each day of delay by Lessee in failing to approve the Budget, in writing, within fourteen (14) days after delivery by the General Contractor as provided in Section 2.04(d), or (iii) for each day of delay caused by any changes to the approved Working Drawings requested by Lessee, or (iv) for each day that any other act or omission by Lessee causes the construction schedule for Tenant Improvements to be delayed (collectively "Lessee Delay"), the Commencement Date shall occur one (1) day in advance of the date of the Certificate of Occupancy for each such day of delay. For example, if seven (7) days of Lessee Delay causes the date of issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy to occur on July 8, 2001 rather than July 1, 2001, the Commencement Date shall be July 1, 2001 for all purposes, including payment of Base Rent and Additional Rent. The Lease Term shall expire, unless sooner terminated or extended as provided herein, on the date which completes twelve (12) years after the Commencement Date occurs or is deemed to have occurred, e.g. if the date on which the Certificate of Occupancy is issued or deemed to be issued for the Building is July 1, 2001, the Lease Term shall expire on June 30, 2013 and if that date is July 3, 2001, the Lease Term shall expire on July 2, 2013 ("Expiration Date"). The parties shall execute a "Memorandum of Commencement of Lease 5 Term" when the Commencement Date becomes known, which shall include a certification of the actual Rentable Area of the Building determined by the methodology described in Section 2.01. and the actual monthly installments of Base Rent to be paid pursuant to Section 4.01., and shall be substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "E." Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Lessee Delay be used to advance the Commencement Date to a date earlier than the Scheduled Commencement Date. (b) Scheduled Commencement Date. Lessor shall use commercially --------------------------- reasonable efforts to cause the Certificate of Occupancy for the Building to be issued no later than July 1, 2001 ("Scheduled Commencement Date"). If a Certificate of Occupancy is not issued for the Building on or before the Scheduled Commencement Date, this failure shall not affect the validity of this Lease or the obligations of Lessee under it. If the Commencement Date is adjusted for delay from any cause, the Expiration Date shall be likewise adjusted for a like period. (c) Termination in Event of Delay. If for any reason Lessor is unable ----------------------------- to cause the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for the Building, on or before the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days after the Scheduled Commencement Date (for a reason other than Lessee Delay or Force Majeure delay excused under Section 17.21.), Lessee, at its sole election, may terminate this Lease upon giving notice within ten (10) business days thereafter. Failure to give such notice within said time period constitutes an irrevocable waiver of the foregoing right to terminate under this Section 3.01(c). (d) Lessee Termination Rights. In the event that either (i) Lessor is not ------------------------- the fee owner of the Property on or before May 1, 2000, or (ii) Lessor has not presented Lessee with reasonable evidence on or before July 15, 2000, that it has obtained a commitment letter for financing in an amount sufficient to complete the construction of the Building Shell and fund the Tenant Improvement Allowance, then Lessee shall have the right to terminate this Lease upon written notice to Lessor within sixty (60) days after either May 1, 2000 or July 15, 2000, as applicable. If Lessee terminates this Lease in accordance with this paragraph, neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder. Section 3.02. Option to Extend. ------------------------------- (a) Exercise. Lessee is given one (1) option to extend the Lease Term -------- ("Option to Extend") for a five (5) year period ("Extended Term") following the date on which the initial Lease Term would otherwise expire, which option may be exercised only by written notice ("Option Notice") from Lessee to Lessor given not less than twelve (12) months prior to the end of the initial Lease Term ("Option Exercise Date"); provided, however, if Lessee is in material default under this Lease (beyond the expiration of any applicable notice period) on the Option Exercise Date or on any day thereafter on or before the last day of the initial Lease Term, the Option Notice shall be totally ineffective, and this Lease shall expire on the last day of the initial Lease Term, if not sooner terminated. The right of Lessee to exercise an Option to Extend shall not be affected by any sublease or assignment of this Lease previously entered into by Lessee pursuant to the provisions of this Lease. 6 (b) Extended Term Rent. In the event Lessee exercises its Option to ------------------ Extend set forth herein, all the terms and conditions of this Lease shall continue to apply except that the Base Rent payable by Lessee during each Option Term shall be equal to one hundred percent (100%) of Fair Market Rent (defined below), as determined under subparagraph (c) below. "Fair Market Rent" shall mean the effective rate being charged (including periodic adjustments thereto as applicable during the period of the Extended Term), for comparable space in similar buildings in the vicinity, i.e. of a similar age and quality considering any recent renovations or modernization, and floor plate size or, if such comparable space is not available, adjustments shall be made in the determination of Fair Market Rent to reflect the age and quality of the Building and Premises as contrasted to other buildings used for comparison purposes, with similar amenities, taking into consideration: size, location, floor level, leasehold improvements or allowances provided or to be provided, term of the lease, extent of services to be provided, the time that the particular rate under consideration became or is to become effective, and any other relevant terms or conditions applicable to both new and renewing tenants. (c) Determination of Fair Market Rent. --------------------------------- (i) Negotiation. If Lessee so exercises its Option to Extend in a ----------- timely manner, the parties shall then meet in good faith to negotiate the Base Rent for the Premises for the Extended Term, during the first thirty (30) days after the date of the delivery by Lessee of the Option Notice (the "Negotiation Period"). If, during the Negotiation Period, the parties agree on the Base Rent applicable to the Premises for the Extended Term, then such agreed amount shall be the Base Rent payable by Lessee during the Extended Term. (ii) Arbitration. In the event that the parties are unable to ----------- agree on the Base Rent for the Premises within the Negotiation Period, then within ten (10) days after the expiration of the Negotiation Period, each party shall separately designate to the other in writing an appraiser to make this determination. Each appraiser designated shall be a member of MAI and shall have at least ten (10) years experience in appraising commercial real property, of similar quality and use as the Premises, in San Mateo County. The failure of either party to appoint an appraiser within the time allowed shall be deemed equivalent to appointing the appraiser appointed by the other party, who shall then determine the Fair Market Rent for the Premises for the Extended Term. Within five (5) business days of their appointment, the two designated appraisers shall jointly designate a third similarly qualified appraiser. Within thirty (30) days after their appointment, each of the two appointed appraisers shall submit to the third appraiser a sealed envelope containing such appointed appraiser's good faith determination of the Fair Market Rent for the Premises for the Extended Term; concurrently with such delivery, each such appraiser shall deliver a copy of his or her determination to the other appraiser. The third appraiser shall within ten (10) days following receipt of such submissions, then determine which of the two appraisers' determinations most closely reflects Fair Market Rent as defined above. The determination most closely reflecting the third appraiser's determination shall be deemed to be the Fair Market Rent for the Premises during the Extended Term; the third appraiser shall have no rights to adjust, amend or otherwise alter the determinations made by the appraiser selected by the parties, but must select one or the other of such appraisers' submissions. The 7 determination by such third appraiser shall be final and binding upon the parties. Said third appraiser shall, upon selecting the determination which most closely resembles Fair Market Rent, concurrently notify both parties hereto. The Base Rent for the Extended Term shall be the determination so selected. The parties shall share the appraisal expenses equally. If the Extended Term begins prior to the determination of Fair Market Rent, Lessee shall pay monthly installments of Base Rent equal to one hundred ten percent (110%) of the monthly installment of Base Rent in effect for the last year of the initial Lease Term (in lieu of "holdover rent" payable under Section 17.09(b)). Once a determination is made, any over payment or under payment shall be reimbursed as a credit against, or paid by adding to, the monthly installment of Base Rent next falling due. ARTICLE IV ---------- RENT: TRIPLE NET LEASE ---------------------- Section 4.01. Base Rent. Lessee shall pay to Lessor as Base Rent an ------------------------ initial monthly installment of Three Dollars and Fifty Cents ($3.50) per square foot of Rentable Area as determined under Section 2.01., in advance, on the first day of each calendar month of the Lease Term, commencing on the Commencement Date, subject to the advance payment of estimated first month of Base Rent pursuant to Section 4.03. Base Rent for any period during the Lease Term which is for less than one month shall be a pro rata portion of the monthly installment (based on the actual days in that month). Section 4.02. Rent Adjustment. The Base Rent set forth in Section 4.01. ------------------------------ above shall be adjusted upward by an annual compounded increase of three and five tenths percent (3.5%), as of the first day of the thirteenth (13th) full calendar month following the Commencement Date and as of each anniversary of that date thereafter during the Lease Term, as shown on Exhibit "E" attached hereto. Section 4.03. First Payment of Base Rent. Lessee shall pay in advance ----------------------------------------- the first payment of Base Rent in the estimated amount of Fife Hundred Fifty Thousand, Four Hundred Forty Five Dollars ($550,445.00) within five (5) days after Lessee's execution of this Lease. Base Rent payments shall resume on the first day of the calendar month immediately succeeding the Commencement Date. If the Commencement Date is other than the first day of a calendar month, the first payment of Base Rent subsequent to the Commencement Date, but only that payment of Base Rent, shall be reduced by any excess of the first Base Rent installment paid in advance over the prorated amount actually due for such partial first month of the Lease Term. Section 4.04. Absolute Triple Net Lease. This Lease is what is commonly ---------------------------------------- called a "Absolute Triple Net Lease," it being understood that Lessor shall receive the Base Rent set forth in Section 4.01. free and clear of any and all expenses, costs, impositions, taxes, assessments, liens or charges of any nature whatsoever. Lessee shall pay all rent in lawful money of the United States of America to Lessor at the notice address stated herein or to such other persons or at such other places as Lessor may designate in writing on or before the due date specified for same without prior demand, set-off or deduction of any nature whatsoever. It is the intention of the parties hereto that this Lease shall not be terminable for any reason by Lessee, and that except 8 as herein expressly provided in Articles III, VIII and XIII, concerning delay, destruction and condemnation, Lessee shall in no event be entitled to any abatement of or reduction in rent payable under this Lease. Any present or future law to the contrary shall not alter this agreement of the parties. Section 4.05. Additional Rent. ----------------------------- (a) In addition to the Base Rent reserved by Section 4.01., Lessee shall pay, as Additional Rent (i) 100% as to amounts applicable solely to the Premises or Property and Lessee's Share is to amounts applicable to the Project or Common Area of all taxes, assessments, fees and other impositions payable by Lessee in accordance with the provisions of Article IX, and insurance premiums in accordance with the provisions of Article VII, (ii) Lessee's Share of Operating Expenses defined below provided that notwithstanding the foregoing, prior to January 1, 2002, during the construction phase of the Project, Lessee shall pay 100% of Operating Expenses applicable to the Property or Premises in lieu of paying Lessee's Share of the specific items being billed, and (iii) any other charges, costs and expenses (including appropriate reserves therefor) which are contemplated or which may arise under any provision of this Lease during the Lease Term, plus a Management Fee to Lessor equal to 3% of the Base Rent. The Management Fee is due and payable, in advance, with each installment of Base Rent. All of such charges, costs, expenses, Management Fee and all other amounts payable by Lessee hereunder, shall constitute Additional Rent, and upon the failure of Lessee to pay any of such charges, costs or expenses, Lessor shall have the same rights and remedies as otherwise provided in this Lease for the failure of Lessee to pay Base Rent. (b) To the extent not paid pursuant to other provisions of this Lease, and at Lessor's sole election, Lessor may submit invoices and Lessee shall pay Lessee's share of Additional Rent in monthly installments on the first day of each month in advance in an amount to be estimated by lessor, based on Lessor's experience in managing office/research and development projects. Within ninety (90) days following the end of the period used by Lessor in estimating Additional Rent, Lessor shall furnish to Lessee a statement (hereinafter referred to as "Lessor's Statement") of the actual amount of Lessee's proportionate share of such Additional Rent, or Lessor shall remit or credit to Lessee, as the case may be, the difference between the estimated amounts paid by Lessee and the actual amount of Lessee's Additional Rent for such period as shown by such statement. Monthly installments for the ensuing year shall be adjusted upward or downward as set forth in Lessor's Statement. Section 4.06. Security Deposit. Upon the date this Lease is executed by ------------------------------- Lessee, Lessee shall deposit with Lessor a Security Deposit equal to twelve (12) month's estimated Base Rent in the amount of Six Million, Six Hundred Five Thousand, Three Hundred Forty and no cents ($6,605,340.00) in the form of cash or an unconditional, irrevocable letter of credit without documents, with Lessor as beneficiary, in whole or in part, and providing for payment in San Francisco on presentation of Lessee's drafts on site, drawable and otherwise from a bank and in a form acceptable to Lessor (the "Security Deposit"). The Security Deposit shall be held by Lessor as security for the faithful performance by Lessee of all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease applicable to Lessee. If Lessee defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, 9 including but not limited to the provisions relating to the condition of the Premises upon Lease Termination, Lessor may (but shall not be required to) use, apply or retain all or any part of the Security Deposit for the payment of any amount which Lessor may spend by reason of Lessee's default or to compensate Lessor for any loss or damage which Lessor may suffer by reason of Lessee's default. If any portion of the Security Deposit is so used or applied, Lessee shall, within ten days after written demand therefor, deposit cash with Lessor in an amount sufficient to restore the Security Deposit to its original amount. Lessee's failure to do so shall be a Default by Lessee. The rights of Lessor pursuant to this Section 4.06. are in addition to any rights which Lessor may have pursuant to Article 12 below. If Lessee fully and faithfully performs every provision of this Lease to be performed by it, the Security Deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned (without interest) to Lessee (or, at Lessor's option, to the last assignee of Lessee's interests hereunder) at Lease expiration or termination and after Lessee has vacated the Premises. Lessor shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from Lessor's general funds or be deemed a trustee of same. Subject to the prior written approval of Lessor and Lessor's lender(s), the letter of credit may be reduced to an amount not less than the total of three (3) months of Base Rent at the then current rate, if Lessee establishes through financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and in a form acceptable to Lessor that Lessee has achieved annual revenue for a period of at least one (1) fiscal year of at least Seven Hundred Fifty Million Dollars ($750,000,000) and has further achieved quarterly operating profit of at least One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000) for not less than four (4) consecutive calendar quarters. If the Security Deposit is in whole or in part in the form of a Letter of Credit, failure of Lessee to deliver a replacement Letter of Credit to Lessor at least forty-five (45) business days prior to the expiration date of any current Letter of Credit shall constitute a separate default entitling Lessor to draw down immediately and entirely on the current Letter of Credit and the proceeds shall constitute a cash Security Deposit. Section 4.07. Lessee's Right to Review Supporting Data. -------------------------------------------------------- (a) Exercise of Right by Lessee. Provided that Lessee is not in --------------------------- default under this Lease and provided further that Lessee strictly complies with the provisions of this Section, Lessee shall have the right to reasonably review supporting data for any portion of a Lessor's statement that Lessee claims is incorrect. In order for Lessee to exercise its right under this Section, Lessee shall, within thirty (30) days after any such Lessor's statement is sent, deliver a written notice to Lessor specifying the portions of the Lessor's statement that are claimed to be incorrect, and Lessee shall simultaneously pay to Lessor all amounts due from Lessee to Lessor as specified in the Lessor's statement. Except as expressly set forth in subparagraph (c) below, in no event shall Lessee be entitled to withhold, deduct, or offset any monetary obligation of Lessee to Lessor under the Lease including, without limitation, Lessee's obligation to make all Base Rent payments and all payments for Additional Rent pending the completion of, and regardless of the results of, any review under this Section. The right to review granted to Lessee under this Section may only be exercised once for any Lessor's statement, and if Lessee fails to meet any of the above conditions as a prerequisite to the exercise of such right, the right of Lessee under this Section for a particular Lessor's statement shall be deemed waived. (b) Procedures for Review. Lessee acknowledges that Lessor maintains --------------------- its 10 records for the Building and Project at its offices in San Francisco, and Lessee therefore agrees that any review of supporting data under this Section shall occur at such location. Any review to be conducted under this Section shall be at the sole expense of Lessee and shall be conducted by an independent (i.e. not then engaged by lessee for any other purposes) firm of certified public accountants of national standing. Lessee acknowledges and agrees that any supporting data reviewed under this Section constitute confidential information of Lessor, which shall not be disclosed to anyone other than the accountants performing the review and the principals of Lessee who receive the results of the review. The disclosure of such information to any other person, whether or not caused by the conduct of Lessee, shall constitute a material breach of this Lease and a forfeiture of all rights under this Section 4.07, including, without limitation, the right to any credit otherwise due. (c) Finding of Error. Any errors disclosed by the review of ---------------- supporting data under this Section shall be promptly corrected, provided that Lessor shall have the right to cause another review of the supporting data to be made by an independent (i.e. not then engaged by Lessor for any other purposes) firm of certified public accountants of national standing. In the event of a disagreement between the two accounting firms, the review that discloses the least amount of deviation from the Lessor's statement shall be deemed to be correct and its review shall be final and binding on both Lessor and Lessee. If the results of the review of supporting data taking into account, if applicable, the results of any additional review caused by Lessor reveal that Lessee has overpaid obligations for a preceding period, the amount of such overpayment shall be credit against Lessee's subsequent installment obligations to pay its share of Additional Rent. In the event that such results show that Lessee has underpaid its obligations for a preceding period, the amount of such underpayment shall be paid by Lessee to Lessor with the next succeeding installment obligation of Additional Rent or, if the Lease has terminated, in cash within thirty (30) days after the determination of underpayment is delivered to Lessee. Each party shall pay the cost and expense of its chosen accounting firm. (4) Effect of Lessee's Default. In the event that Lessee becomes in -------------------------- default of its obligations under this Lease at any time during the pendency of a review of records under this Section, said right to review shall immediately cease and the matters originally set forth in the Lessor's statement shall be deemed to be correct. Section 4.08. Operating Expenses. --------------------------------- (a) Definition.

If the Premises are damaged by any peril within twelve (12) months prior to the last day of the Lease Term and, in the reasonable opinion of the Lessor's architect or construction consultant, the restoration of the Premises cannot be substantially completed within ninety (90) days after the date of such damage and such damage renders unusable more than thirty percent (30%) of the Premises, Lessor may terminate this Lease on sixty (60) days written notice to Lessee. (b) If the Building is damaged or destroyed by any cause to the extent of more than fifty percent (50%) of its total Rentable Area during the Lease Term, Lessor shall notify Lessee within sixty (60) days after such damage or destruction whether it will repair the same within nine months (9) (subject to the Force Majeure provision of Section 17.21) from the date of such notice and if Lessor states that it will not repair within said nine months (9) (subject to force majeure) this Lease shall terminate ten (10) business days after Lessor gives its notice. In the event of termination, Lessee shall pay to Lessor all insurance proceeds, if any, received by Lessee as a result of the damage or destruction to the extent allocable to the Building for unamortized Tenant Improvements or other Alterations installed therein at Lessee's sole cost and expense. Section 8.02. Waiver of Civil Code Remedies. Lessee hereby expressly -------------------------------------------- waives any rights to terminate this Lease upon damage or destruction to the Premises, including without limitation any rights pursuant to the provisions of Section 1932, Subdivisions 1 and 2 and Section 1933, Subdivision 4, of the California Civil Code, as amended from time-to-time, and the provisions of any similar law hereinafter enacted. Section 8.03. No Abatement of Rentals. The Base Rent, Additional Rent and -------------------------------------- other charges due under this Lease shall not be reduced or abated by reason of any damage or destruction to the Premises (except as provided in Section 8.01.(a) above with respect to rental loss insurance), and Lessor shall be entitled to all proceeds of the insurance maintained pursuant to Section 7.01. above during the period of rebuilding pursuant to Section 8.01. above, or if the Lease is terminated pursuant to Section 8.01. above. Lessee shall have no claim against Lessor, including, without limitation, for compensation for inconvenience or loss of business, profits or goodwill during any period of repair or reconstruction. 22 Section 8.04. Liability for Personal Property. In no event shall Lessor ---------------------------------------------- have any liability for, nor shall it be required to repair or restore, any injury or damage to Lessee's personal property or to any other personal property or to Alterations in or upon the Premises by Lessee. ARTICLE IX ---------- REAL PROPERTY TAXES ------------------- Section 9.01. Payment of Taxes. Subject to Lessee timely paying Lessor ------------------------------- the same in advance as provided below, Lessor shall pay all real property taxes, including any escaped or supplemental tax and any form of real estate tax or assessment, general, special, ordinary or extraordinary, and any license, fee, charge, excise or imposition ("real property tax"), imposed, assessed or levied on or with respect to the Project by any Federal, State, County, City or other political subdivision or public authority having the direct or indirect power to tax, including, without limitation, any improvement district or any community facilities district (including with respect to a district established for purposes of constructing the Seaport Boulevard improvements and other improvements as required in the Development Agreement or by the City of Redwood City ("Community Facility District Bond"), as against any legal or equitable interest of Lessor in the Project or against the Project or any part thereof applicable to the Project for all periods of time included within the Lease Term (as the same may be extended and during any holdover period), as well as any government or private cost sharing agreement assessments made for the purpose of augmenting or improving the quality of services and amenities normally provided by government agencies. All such payments shall be made by Lessee directly pursuant to Section 4.05 hereof no later than ten (10) days after Lessor's delivery to Lessee of a statement of the real property tax due, together with a copy of the applicable tax bill. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessee shall not be required to pay any net income taxes, franchise taxes, or any succession or inheritance taxes of Lessor. If at anytime during the Lease Term, the State of California or any political subdivision of the state, including any county, city, city and county, public corporation, district, or any other political entity or public corporation of this state, levies or assesses against Lessor a tax, fee, charge, imposition or excise on rents under the Lease, the square footage of the Premises or Project, the act of entering into this Lease, or the occupancy of Lessee, or levies or assesses against Lessor any other tax, fee, or excise, however described, including, without limitation, a so-called value added, business license, transit, commuter, environmental or energy tax fee, charge or excise or imposition related to the Project as a direct substitution in whole or in part for, or in addition to, any real property taxes on the Project the same shall be included n real property taxes and Lessee shall pay ten (10) days before delinquency or ten (10) days after receipt of the tax bill, whichever is later, that tax, fee, charge, excise or imposition except to the extent estimated real property taxes are billed and paid monthly. Real property taxes payable by Lessee hereunder shall not include real property taxes applicable to other office/research and development buildings or the legal parcels on which such buildings are located, but Lessee shall pay one hundred percent (100%) of real property taxes applicable to the Property. Section 9.02. Pro Ration for Partial Years. If any such taxes paid by ------------------------------------------- Lessee shall cover any period prior to the Commencement Date or after the Expiration Date of the Lease Term, Lessee's share of such taxes shall be equitably prorated to cover only the period of time within the tax fiscal year during which this Lease shall be in effect, and Lessor shall reimburse Lessee to 23 any extent required. If Lessee shall fail to pay any such taxes, Lessor shall have the right to pay the same in which case Lessee shall repay such amount to Lessor within ten (10) days after written demand, together with interest at the Agreed Rate. Section 9.03. Personal Property Taxes. -------------------------------------- (a) Lessee shall pay prior to delinquency all taxes imposed, assessed against and levied upon trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal property of Lessee contained in the Premises or elsewhere. When possible, Lessee shall cause said trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal property to be assessed and billed separately from the real property of Lessor. (b) If any of Lessee's said personal property shall be assessed with Lessor's real property, Lessee shall pay Lessor the taxes attributable to Lessee within ten (10) days after receipt of a written statement setting forth the taxes applicable to Lessee's property. (c) If Lessee shall fail to pay any such taxes, Lessor shall have the right to pay the same, in which case Lessee shall repay such amount to Lessor with Lessee's next rent installment together with interest at the Agreed Rate. ARTICLE X --------- UTILITIES --------- Section 10.01. Lessee to Pay. Lessee shall pay prior to delinquency and ---------------------------- throughout the Lease Term, all charges for water, gas, heating, cooling, sewer, telephone, electricity, garbage, air conditioning and ventilation, janitorial service, landscaping and all other materials and utilities supplied to the Premises. The disruption, failure, lack or shortage of any service or utility due to any cause whatsoever shall not affect any obligation of Lessee hereunder, and Lessee shall faithfully keep and observe all the terms, conditions and covenants of this Lease and pay all rent due hereunder, all without diminution, credit or deduction. ARTICLE XI ---------- ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING ------------------------- Section 11.01. Lessor's Consent Required. Except as provided in ----------------------------------------- Section 11.02, Lessee shall not voluntarily or by operation of law assign, transfer, mortgage, sublet, license or otherwise transfer or encumber all or any part of Lessee's interest in this Lease or in the Premises or any part thereof, without Lessor's prior written consent which Lessor shall not unreasonably withhold or delay. Lessor shall respond in writing to Lessee's request for consent hereunder in a timely manner and any attempted assignment, transfer, mortgage, encumbrance, subletting or licensing without such consent shall be void, and shall constitute a breach of this Lease. By way of example, but not limitation, reasonable grounds for denying consent include: (i) poor credit history or insufficient financial strength of transferee, (ii) transferee's intended use of the Premises is inconsistent with the permitted use or will materially and adversely affect Lessor's interest. Lessee shall reimburse Lessor upon demand for Lessor's reasonable costs and expenses 24 (including attorneys' fees, architect fees and engineering fees) involved in renewing any request for consent whether or not consent is granted, provided that Lessee's obligation for attorneys' fees shall not exceed One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) unless any of the documents involved in the transaction become the subject of negotiation. Section 11.02. Lessee Affiliates. Lessee may assign or sublet the --------------------------------- Premises, or any portion thereof, 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 of Lessee's stock or all, or substantially all of the assets of Lessee as a going concern of the business that is being conducted on the Premises ("Affiliate"), provided that said assignee or sublessee assumes, in full, the obligations of Lessee under this Lease and provided further that the use to which the Premises will be put does not materially change. Any such assignment shall not, in any way, affect or limit the liability of Lessee under the terms of this Lease. Section 11.03. No Release of Lessee. Regardless of Lessor's consent, ------------------------------------ no subletting or assignment shall release Lessee of Lessee's obligation or alter the primary liability of Lessee to pay the rent and to perform all other obligations to be performed by Lessee hereunder. The acceptance of rent by Lessor from any other person shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting. In the event of default by any assignee of Lessee or any successor of Lessee, in the performance of any of the terms hereof, Lessor may proceed directly against Lessee without the necessity of exhausting remedies against said assignee. Section 11.04. Excess Rent. In the event Lessor shall consent to a --------------------------- sublease or an assignment, Lessee shall pay to Lessor with its regularly scheduled Base Rent payments, fifty percent (50%) of all sums and the fair market value of all consideration collected or received by Lessee from a sublessee or assignee which are in excess of the Base Rent and Additional Rent due and payable with respect to the subject space pursuant to Article IV for the time period encompassed by the sublease or assignment term, after first deducting (i) reasonable leasing commissions paid by Lessee with respect to such sublease or assignment, and (ii) that portion of the cost of Tenant Improvements paid by Lessee (up to $30.00 per square foot) which remains unamortized (using an amortization schedule of the first sixty (60) months of the Lease Term) during any portion of the sublease or assignment term. Section 11.05. No Impairment of Security. Lessee's written request to ----------------------------------------- Lessor for consent to an assignment or subletting or other form of transfer shall be accompanied by (a) the name and legal composition of the proposed transferee; (b) the nature of the proposed transferee's business to be carried on in the Premises; (c) the terms and provisions of the proposed transfer agreement; and (d) such financial and other reasonable information as Lessor may request concerning the proposed transferee. Section 11.06. Lessor's Recapture Rights. ----------------------------------------- (a) Lessor's Recapture Rights. Notwithstanding any other provision of ------------------------- this Article 11, in the event that Lessee proposes to sublease or assign or otherwise transfer any interest in 25 this Lease or the Premises or any part thereof affecting (collectively with all other such subleases, assignments, or transfers then in effect) more than fifty percent (50%) of the square footage of the Rentable Area of the Building (Recapture Space) for more than fifty percent (50%) of the then remaining Lease Term, then Lessor shall have the option to recapture the Recapture Space by written notice to Lessee (Recapture Notice) given within ten (10) business days after Lessor receives any notice of such proposed assignment or sublease or other transfer ("Transfer Notice"). A timely Recapture Notice terminates this Lease for the Recapture Space, effective as of the date specified in the Transfer Notice. If Lessor declines or fails timely to deliver a Recapture Notice, Lessor shall have no further right under this Section 11.06 to the Recapture Space unless it becomes available again after transfer by Lessee. (b) Consequences of Recapture. To determine the new Base Rent under ------------------------- this Lease if Lessor recaptures the Recapture Space, the then current Base Rent (immediately before Lessor's recapture) under the Lease shall be multiplied by a fraction, numerator of which is the square feet of the Rentable Area retained by Lessee after Lessor's recapture and the denominator of which is the total square feet of the Rentable Area before Lessor's recapture. The Additional Rent, to the extent that it is calculated on the basis of the square feet within the Building, shall be reduced to reflect Lessee's proportionate share based on the square feet of the Building retained by Lessee after Lessor's recapture. This Lease as so amended shall continue thereafter in full force and effect. Either party may require written confirmation of the amendments to this Lease necessitated by Lessor's recapture of the Recapture Space. If Lessor recaptures the Recapture Space, Lessor shall, at Lessor's sole expense, construct, paint, and furnish any partitions required to segregate the Recapture Space from the remaining Premises retained by Lessee as well as arrange separate metering of utilities. ARTICLE XII ----------- DEFAULTS; REMEDIES ------------------ Section 12.01. Defaults. The occurrence of any one or more of the ------------------------ following events shall constitute a material default and breach of this Lease by Lessee: (a) The abandonment of the Premises by Lessee or the commission of waste at the Premises or the making of an assignment or subletting in violation of Article XI, provided however, abandonment shall be considered to not occur if the Premises are maintained and occupied to the extent necessary to maintain the insurance on each and every portion of the Premises; (b) 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, if such failure continues for a period of five (5) business days after written notice thereof from Lessor to Lessee. In the event that Lessor serves Lessee with a Notice to Pay Rent or Quit in the form required by applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes such Notice shall constitute the notice required by this paragraph, provided that the cure period stated in the Notice shall be five (5) business days rather than the statutory three (3) days; 26 (c) Lessee's failure to provide (i) any instrument or assurance as required by Section 7.05 or (ii) estoppel certificate as required by Section 15.01 or (iii) any document subordinating this Lease to a Lender's deed of trust if such failure continues for five (5) business days after written notice of the failure. In the event Lessor serves Lessee with a Notice to Perform Covenant or Quit in the form required by applicable Unlawful Detainer Statutes, such Notice shall constitute the notice required by this paragraph, provided that the cure period stated in the Notice shall be five (5) business days rather than the statutory three (3) days; (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 described in paragraph (a) (b) or (c) above, if such failure continues for a period of ten (10) days after written notice thereof from Lessor to Lessee; provided, however, that if the nature of Lessee's default is such that more than ten (10) days are reasonably required for its cure, then Lessee shall not be deemed to be in default if Lessee commences such cure within said ten (10) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion; (e) (i) The making by Lessee of any general arrangement or assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) the filing by Lessee of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy under Title 11 U.S.C. or the filing of an involuntary petition against Lessee which remains uncontested for a period of sixty days; (iii) the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's interest in this Lease; 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, provided, however, in the event that any provisions of this Section 12.01(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 any guarantor of Lessee's obligations hereunder, was materially false. (g) The occurrence of a material default and breach by Lessee under any other Lease between Lessee and Lessor (or any affiliate of Lessor) for Premises in Pacific Shores Center. Section 12.02. Remedies. In the event of any such material default and ------------------------ breach by Lessee, Lessor may at any time thereafter, and without limiting Lessor in the exercise of any right or remedy which Lessor may have by reason of such default and breach: (a) Terminate Lessee's right to possession of the Premises by any lawful means including by way of unlawful detainer (and without any further notice if a notice in compliance with the unlawful detainer statutes and in compliance with paragraphs (b), (c) and (d) of Section 12.01 above has already been given), in which case this Lease 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, (i) the cost of recovering possession of the Premises including reasonable attorney's fees related thereto; (ii) the worth at the time of the award of any unpaid rent that had been earned at the time of the termination, to be computed by allowing interest at the Agreed Rate but in no case greater than the maximum amount of interest permitted by law, 27 (iii) the worth at the time at the time of the award of the amount by which the unpaid rent that would have been earned between the time of the termination and the time of the award exceeds the amount of unpaid rent that Lessee proves could reasonably have been avoided, to be computed by allowing interest at the Agreed Rate but in no case greater than the maximum amount of interest permitted by law, (iv) the worth at the time of the award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the Lease Term after the time of the award exceeds the amount of unpaid rent that Lessee proves could reasonably have been avoided, to be computed by discounting that amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of the award plus one per cent (1%), (v) any other amount necessary to compensate Lessor for all the detriment proximately caused by Lessee's failure to perform obligations under this Lease, including brokerage commissions and advertising expenses, expenses of remodeling the Premises for a new tenant (whether for the same or a different use), and any special concessions made to obtain a new tenant, and (vi) any other amounts, in addition to or in lieu of those listed above, that may be permitted by applicable law. (b) Maintain Lessee's right to possession as provided in Civil Code Section 1951.4 in which case this Lease shall continue in effect whether or not Lessee shall have 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 of California. Unpaid amounts of rent and other unpaid monetary obligations of Lessee under the terms of this Lease shall bear interest from the date due at the Agreed Rate. Section 12.03. Default by Lessor. Lessor shall not be in default under -------------------------------- this Lease 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 that 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 reasonably required for performance then Lessor shall not be in default if Lessor commences performance within such thirty day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes the same to completion. In the event Lessor does not commence performance within the thirty (30) day period provided herein, Lessee may perform such obligation and will be reimbursed for its expenses by Lessor together with interest thereon at the Agreed Rate. Lessee waives any right to terminate this Lease or to vacate the Premises on Lessor's default under this Lease. Lessee's sole remedy on Lessor's default is an action for damages or injunctive or declaratory relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall be deemed applicable in the event of Lessor's delay in delivery of the Premises. In that situation, all rights and remedies shall be determined under Section 3.01 above. Section 12.04. Late Charges. Lessee hereby acknowledges that late ---------------------------- payment by Lessee to Lessor of rent and 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 28 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 Premises. Accordingly, if any installment of rent or any other sum due from Lessee shall not be received by Lessor or Lessor's designated agent within five (5) days after such amount is due and owing, Lessee shall pay to Lessor a late charge equal to five percent (5%) 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. In the event that a late charge is payable hereunder, whether or not collected, for three (3) consecutive installments of rent, then rent shall automatically become due and payable quarterly in advance, rather than monthly, notwithstanding Section 4.01 or any other provision of this Lease to the contrary. ARTICLE XIII ------------ CONDEMNATION OF PREMISES. ------------------------- Section 13.01. Total Condemnation. If the entire Premises, whether by ---------------------------------- exercise of governmental power or the sale or transfer by Lessor to any condemnor under threat of condemnation or while proceedings for condemnation are pending, at any time during the Lease Term, shall be taken by condemnation such that there does not remain a portion suitable for occupation, this Lease shall then terminate as of the date transfer of possession is required. Upon such condemnation, all rent shall be paid up to the date transfer of possession is required, and Lessee shall have no claim against Lessor or the award for the value of the unexpired portion of this Lease Term. Section 13.02. Partial Condemnation. If any portion of the Premises is ------------------------------------ taken by condemnation during the Lease Term, whether by exercise of governmental power or the sale for transfer by Lessor to an condemnor under threat of condemnation or while proceedings for condemnation are pending, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect except that in the event a partial taking leaves the Premises unfit for the conduct of the business of Lessee, then Lessee shall have the right to terminate this Lease effective upon the date transfer of possession is required. Moreover, Lessor shall have the right to terminate this Lease effective on the date transfer of possession is required if more than thirty-three percent (33%) of the total square footage of the Premises is taken by condemnation. Lessee and Lessor may elect to exercise their respective rights to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section by serving written notice to the other within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of condemnation. All rent shall be paid up to the date of termination, and Lessee shall have no claim against Lessor for the value of any unexpired portion of the Lease Term. If this Lease shall not be canceled, the rent after such partial taking shall be that percentage of the adjusted base rent specified herein, equal to the percentage which the square footage of the untaken part of the Premises, immediately after the taking, bears to the square footage of the entire Premises immediately before the taking. If Lessee's continued use of the Premises requires alterations and repair by reason of a partial taking, all such alterations and repair shall be made by Lessee at Lessee's expense. Lessee 29 waives all rights it may have under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1265.130 or otherwise, to terminate this Lease based on partial condemnation. Section 13.03. Award to Lessee. In the event of any condemnation, ------------------------------ whether total or partial, Lessee shall have the right to claim and recover from the condemning authority such compensation as may be separately awarded or recoverable by Lessee for loss of its business fixtures, or equipment belonging to Lessee immediately prior to the condemnation. The balance of any condemnation award shall belong to Lessor (including, without limitation, any amount attributable to any excess of the market value of the Premises for the remainder of the Lease Term over the then present value of the rent payable for the remainder of the Lease Term) and Lessee shall have no further right to recover from Lessor or the condemning authority for any claims arising out of such taking, provided that Lessee shall have the right to make a separate claim in the condemnation proceeding, as long as the award payable to Lessor is not reduced thereby, for the taking of the unamortized (using the first sixty (60) months of the initial Lease Term as the amortization period) value of any Tenant Improvements paid for by Lessee which are not removed by Lessee. ARTICLE XIV ----------- ENTRY BY LESSOR --------------- Section 14.01. Entry by Lessor Permitted. Lessee shall permit Lessor ----------------------------------------- and its employees, agents and contractors to enter the Premises and all parts thereof (i) upon twenty-four (24) hours notice (or without notice in an emergency), including without limitation, the Building and all parts thereof at all reasonable times for any of the following purposes: to inspect the Premises; to maintain the Premises; to make such repairs to the Premises as Lessor is obligated or may elect to make; to make repairs, alterations or additions to any other portion of the Premises and (ii) upon twenty-four (24) hours notice to show the Premises and post "To Lease" signs for the purposes of reletting during the last twelve (12) months of the Lease Term (provided that Lessee has failed to exercise its option to extend) or extended Lease Term to show the Premises as part of a prospective sale by Lessor or to post notices of nonresponsibility. Lessor shall have such right of entry without any rebate of rent to Lessee for any loss of occupancy or quiet enjoyment of the Premises hereby occasioned. ARTICLE XV ---------- ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE -------------------- Section 15.01. Estoppel Certificate. ------------------------------------ (a) Lessee shall at any time upon not less than fifteen (15) days' prior written notice from Lessor execute, acknowledge and deliver to Lessor a statement in writing (i) certifying, if true, that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying, if true, 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, if true, that there are not, to Lessee's knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of Lessor hereunder, or specifying such defaults if any are claimed and (iii) certifying or 30 acknowledging such other matters as are requested by any prospective lender or buyer which are reasonably related to the loan or sale transaction. Any such statement may be conclusively relied upon by any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the Premises. (b) Lessee's failure to deliver such statement within such time shall be conclusive upon Lessee (i) that this Lease is in full force and effect, without modification except as may be represented by Lessor, (ii) that there are no uncured defaults in Lessor's performance, and (iii) that not more than one month's rent has been paid in advance. ARTICLE XVI ------------- LESSOR'S LIABILITY ------------------ Section 16.01. Limitations on 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 of the Premises. 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 respective periods of ownership. For any breach of this Lease by Lessor, the liability of Lessor (including all persons and entities that comprise Lessor, and any successor Lessor) and any recourse by Lessee against Lessor shall be limited to the interest of Lessor, and Lessor's successors in interest, in and to the Premises. On behalf of itself and all persons claiming by, through, or under Lessee, Lessee expressly waives and releases Lessor and each member, agent and employee of Lessor from any personal liability for breach of this Lease. ARTICLE XVII ------------ GENERAL PROVISIONS ------------------ Section 17.01. 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. Section 17.02. Agreed Rate Interest on Past-Due Obligations. Except as ------------------------------------------------------------ expressly herein provided, any amount due to either party not paid when due shall bear interest at the Bank of America prime rate plus one percent (1%) ("Agreed Rate"). Payment of such interest shall not excuse or cure any default by Lessee under this Lease. Despite any other provision of this Lease, the total liability for interest payments shall not exceed the limits, if any, imposed by the usury laws of the State of California. Any interest paid in excess of those limits shall be refunded to the payor by application of the amount of excess interest paid against any sums outstanding in any order that payee requires. If the amount of excess interest paid exceeds the sums outstanding, the portion exceeding those sums shall be refunded in cash to the payor by the payee. To ascertain whether any interest payable exceeds the limits imposed, any nonprincipal 31 payment (including late charges) shall be considered to the extent permitted by law to be an expense or a fee, premium, or penalty rather than interest. Section 17.03. Time of Essence. Time is of the essence in the ------------------------------- performance of all obligations under this Lease. Section 17.04. Additional Rent. Any monetary obligations of Lessee to ------------------------------- Lessor under the terms of this Lease shall be deemed to be Additional Rent and Lessor shall have all the rights and remedies for the nonpayment of same as it would have for nonpayment of Base Rent, except that the one year requirement of Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161(2) shall apply only to scheduled installments of Base Rent and not to any Additional Rent. All references to "rent" (except specific references to either Base Rent or Additional Rent) shall mean Base Rent and Additional Rent. Section 17.05. Incorporation of Prior Agreements, Amendments and Exhibits. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- This Lease (including Exhibits A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K and L) contains all agreements of the parties with respect to any matter mentioned herein. No prior 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 Lessor nor any employees or agents of the Lessor has made any oral or written warranties or representations to Lessee relative to the condition or use by Lessee of said Premises 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 Lease Term except as otherwise specifically stated in this Lease. Neither party has been induced to enter into this Lease by, and neither party is relying on, any representation or warranty outside those expressly set forth in this Lease. Section 17.06. Notices. ----------------------- (a) Written Notice. Any notice required or permitted to be given -------------- hereunder shall be in writing and shall be given by a method described in paragraph (b) below and shall be addressed to Lessee or to Lessor at the addresses noted below, next to the signature of the respective parties, as the case may be.
