     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.

     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.  "Operating Expenses" shall mean and include, to the extent
not billed as a cost or expense of the Premises or pursuant to Articles VI, VII

monthly installments on the first day of each month in an amount set forth in a
written estimate by Lessor.  Lessor agrees that it will base its estimate on
Lessor's experience in managing office/research and development projects and in
a reasonable manner.  Within ninety (90) days following the end of the period
used by Lessor in estimating Lessor's cost, Lessor shall furnish to Lessee a
statement (hereinafter referred to as "Lessor's Statement") of the actual amount

days thereafter, Lessee shall pay to Lessor, as Additional Rent, or Lessor shall

Rent for the ensuing estimation period shall be adjusted upward or downward

                                      ---

     Section 5.01.  Permitted Use and Limitations on Use.  The Premises shall
     ---------------------------------------------------                        
be used and occupied only for office, research and development, together with
such ancillary uses which do not cause excessive wear of the Premises or
increase the potential liability of Lessor, and for no other use, without
Lessor's prior written consent which shall not be unreasonably withheld,
conditioned or delayed so long as such use is lawful and does not conflict with
any other provision of this Lease including without limitation the restrictions
set forth in the following provisions of this Section.  Lessee shall not use,
suffer or permit the use of the Premises in any manner that will tend to create
or constitute waste, nuisance or unlawful acts.  In no event shall it be
unreasonable for Lessor to withhold its consent as to uses which it determines
would tend to increase materially the wear of the Premises or any part thereof
or increase the potential liability of Lessor or decrease the marketability,
financability, leasability or value of the Premises or Project.  Lessee shall
not do anything in or about the Premises which will (i) cause structural injury
to the Building or Premises, or (ii) cause damage to any part of the Building or
Premises except to the extent reasonably necessary for the installation of
Lessee's trade fixtures and Lessee's Alterations, and then only in a manner
which has been first approved by Lessor in writing.  Lessee shall not operate
any equipment within the Building or Premises which will (i) materially damage
the Building or the Common Area, (ii) overload existing electrical systems or
other mechanical equipment servicing the Building, (iii) impair the efficient
operation of the sprinkler system or the heating, ventilating or air
conditioning ("HVAC") equipment within or

                                       13

 
servicing the Building, (iv) damage, overload or corrode the sanitary sewer
system, or (v) damage the Common Area or any other part of the Project. Lessee
shall not attach, hang or suspend anything from the ceiling, roof, walls or
columns of the Building or set any load on the floor in excess of the load
limits for which such items are designed nor operate hard wheel forklifts within
the Premises. Any dust, fumes, or waste products generated by Lessee's use of
the Premises shall be contained and disposed so that they do not (i) create an
unreasonable fire or health hazard, (ii) damage the Premises, or (iii) result in
the violation of any law. Except as approved by Lessor, Lessee shall not change
the exterior of the Building, or the outside area of the Premises, or install
any equipment or antennas on or make any penetrations of the exterior or roof of
the Building. Lessee shall not conduct on any portion of the Premises any sale
of any kind, including any public or private auction, fire sale, going-out-of-
business sale, distress sale or other liquidation sale. No materials, supplies,
tanks or containers, equipment, finished products or semifinished products, raw
materials, inoperable vehicles or articles of any nature shall be stored upon or
permitted to remain within the outside areas of the Premises except in fully
fenced and screened areas outside the Building which have been designed for such
purpose and have been approved in writing by Lessor for such use by Lessee.

     Section 5.02.  Compliance with Law.
     ---------------------------------- 

     (a)  Lessor shall deliver the Premises to Lessee on the Commencement Date
(without regard to the use for which Lessee will use the Premises) free of
violations of any covenants or restrictions of record, or any applicable law,
building code, regulation or ordinance in effect on such Commencement Date,
including without limitation, the Americans with Disability Act, and free of
Year Two Thousand computer programming defects.

     (b)  Except as provided in paragraph 5.02.(a), Lessee shall, at Lessee's
cost and expense, comply promptly with all statutes, ordinances, codes, rules,
regulations, orders, covenants and restrictions of record, and requirements
applicable to the Premises and Lessee's use and occupancy of same in effect
during any part of the Lease Term, whether the same are presently foreseeable or
not, and without regard to the cost or expense of compliance.

     (c)  By executing this Lease, Lessee acknowledges that it has reviewed
and satisfied itself as to its compliance, or intended compliance with the
applicable zoning and permit laws, hazardous materials and waste requirements,
and all other statutes, laws, or ordinances relevant to the uses stated in
Section 5.01., above.

     Section 5.03. Condition of Premises at Commencement Date.  Subject to all 
     --------------------------------------------------------                
of the terms of this Lease for the construction of Tenant Improvements, Lessor
shall deliver the Building to Lessee on the Commencement Date with the Building
plumbing, lighting, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, gas, electrical, and
sprinkler systems and loading doors as set forth in Exhibit "D" in proper
operating condition and built substantially in accordance with the approved
plans therefor, and in a workmanlike manner. Except as otherwise provided in
this Lease, Lessee hereby accepts the Premises in their condition existing as of
the Commencement Date, subject to all applicable zoning, municipal, county and
state laws, ordinances and regulations governing and regulating the use and
condition of the Premises, and any covenants or

                                       14

 
restrictions, liens, encumbrances and title exceptions of record, and accepts
this Lease subject thereto and to all matters disclosed thereby and by any
exhibits attached hereto.  Lessee acknowledges that neither Lessor nor any agent
of Lessor has made any representation or warranty as to the present or future
suitability of the Premises for the conduct of Lessee's business.

     Section 5.04.  Defective Condition at Commencement Date.  In the event
     -------------------------------------------------------                  
that it is determined, and Lessee notifies Lessor in writing within one year
after the Commencement Date, that any of the obligations of Lessor set forth in
Section 2.04.(b),  Section 5.02.(a) or Section 5.03. were not performed, then it
shall be the obligation of Lessor, and the sole right and remedy of Lessee,
after receipt of written notice from Lessee setting forth with specificity the
nature of the failed performance, to promptly, within a reasonable time and at
Lessor's sole cost, correct same.  Except as to certain defects which remain
Lessor's responsibility under Section 6.01(b) Lessee's failure to give such
written notice to Lessor within one year after the Commencement Date shall
constitute a conclusive presumption that Lessor has complied with all of
Lessor's obligations under the foregoing sections 2.04.(b), 5.02.(a) and 5.03.,
and any required correction after that date shall be performed by Lessee, at its
sole cost and expense.  At the end of the first year of the Lease Term, Lessor
shall promptly assign to Lessee all of Lessor's contractor's, and/or
manufacturer's guarantees, warranties, and causes of action which do not relate
to Lessor's obligations under Section 6.01(b).

     Section 5.05.  Building Security.  Lessee acknowledges and agrees that
     --------------------------------                                         
it assumes sole responsibility for security at the Premises for its agents,
employees, invitees, licensees, contractors, guests and visitors and will
provide such systems and personnel for same including, without limitation, the
Common Area as it deems necessary or appropriate and at its sole cost and
expense.  Lessee acknowledges and agrees that Lessor does not intend to provide
any security system or security personnel at the Premises or Project, including,
without limitation, at the Common Areas, provided, however, that nothing herein
shall be deemed to prevent Lessor from providing such system or personnel in the
future, the cost of which will be included in those items for which Lessee pays
additional rent.

     Section 5.06.  Rules and Regulations.  Lessor may from time to time
     -------------------------------------                              
promulgate reasonable and nondiscriminatory rules and regulations applicable for
the care and orderly management of the Premises, the Project and/or its Common
Area.  Such rules and regulations shall be binding upon Lessor upon delivery of
a copy thereof to Lessor, and Lessor agrees to abide by such rules and
regulations.  A copy of the initial Rules and Regulations is attached hereto as
Exhibit "L."  If there is a conflict between the rules and regulations and any
of the provisions of this Lease, the provisions of this Lease shall prevail.
Lessor shall not be responsible for the violation of any such rules and
regulations by any person, including, without limitation, Lessee or its
employees, agents, invitees, licensees, guests, visitors or contractors.

solely by an act of gross negligence or intentional misconduct by Lessor during
the Lease Term) and all improvements and appurtenances in or serving the
Premises, including, without limitation, all interior and exterior walls, all

obligations set forth in Section 5.04) shall repair defects in the exterior
walls (including all exterior glass which is damaged by structural defects in
such exterior walls), supporting pillars, structural walls, roof structure and
foundations of the Building and sewer and plumbing systems outside the Building,
provided that the need for repair is not caused by Lessee, in which event Lessor
shall, at Lessee's sole cost and expense, repair same.  Lessor shall replace the
roof membrane of the Building, the parking lot surface, landscaping, drainage,
irrigation, sprinkler and sewer and plumbing systems outside the Building
systems when the useful life of each has expired, and Lessee shall pay the cost

hereunder and Lessor shall have a reasonable time to perform same.  Should
Lessor default as provided in Section 12.03 with respect to its obligation to
make any of the repairs assumed by it hereunder with respect to the Building,
Lessee shall have the right to perform such repairs and Lessor agrees that
within thirty (30) days after written demand accompanied by detailed invoice(s),
it shall pay to Lessee the cost of any such repairs together with accrued
interest from the date of Lessee's payment at the Agreed Rate.  Lessor shall not
be liable to Lessee, its employees, invitees, or licensees for any damage to
person or property, and Lessee's sole right and remedy shall be the performance
of said repairs by Lessee with right of reimbursement from Lessor of the
reasonable fair market cost of said repairs, not exceeding the sum actually
expended by Lessee, together with accrued interest from the date of Lessee's
payment at the Agreed Rate, provided that nothing herein shall be deemed to
create a right of setoff or withholding by Lessee of Base Rent or Additional
Rent or any other amounts due herein.   Lessee hereby expressly waives all
rights under and benefits of Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code
or under any similar law, statute or ordinance now or hereafter in effect to
make repairs and offset the cost of same against rent or to withhold or delay
any payment of rent or any other of its obligations hereunder as a result of any
default by Lessor under this Section 6.01.(b).

limitation, windows, floors, walls, doors, showcases and fixtures clean and neat
in appearance.

     (d)  If Lessee refused or neglects to commence such repairs and/or
maintenance for which Lessee is responsible under this Article VI within a
thirty (30) day period (or as soon as practical and in no event later than five
(5) days, if the failure to initiate the repair threatens to cause further
damage to the Premises) after written notice from Lessor and thereafter
diligently prosecute the same to completion, then Lessor may (i) enter the
Premises (except in an emergency, upon at least 24 hours advanced written
notice) during Lessor's business hours and cause such repairs and/or maintenance
to be made and shall not be responsible to Lessee for any loss or damage
occasioned thereby and Lessee agrees that upon demand, it shall pay to Lessor
the reasonable cost of any such repairs, not exceeding the sum actually expended
by Lessor, together with accrued interest from the date of Lessor's payment at
the Agreed Rate and (ii) elect to enter into a maintenance contract at a market
rate for first-rate maintenance with a third party for the performance of all or
a part of Lessee's maintenance obligations, whereupon, Lessee shall be relieved
from its obligations to perform only those maintenance obligations covered by
such maintenance contract, and Lessee shall bear the entire cost of such
maintenance contract which shall be paid in advance, as Additional Rent, on a
monthly basis with Lessee's Base Rent payments.

do not affect the Building systems, exterior appearance, structural components
or structural integrity and which do not exceed collectively One Hundred
Thousand Dollars ($100,000) in cost within any twelve (12) month period, without

written notice of the expected commencement date of that construction to permit
Lessor to post and record a notice of nonresponsibility.  If any such lien
attaches or Lessee received notice of any such lien, Lessee shall cause the lien
to be immediately released and removed of record.  Despite any other provision
of this Lease, if the lien is not released and removed within twenty (20) days
after Lessor delivers notice of the lien to Lessee, Lessor may immediately take
all action necessary to release and remove the lien, without any duty to
investigate the validity of it.  All expenses (including reasonable attorney
fees and the cost of any bond) incurred by Lessor in connection with a lien
incurred by Lessee or its removal shall be considered Additional Rent under this
Lease and be immediately due and payable by Lessee.

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.

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.

                           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.

     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.

                           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.

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.

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

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.

     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

case may be. Either party may by notice to the other specify a different address
for notice purposes. A copy of all notices required or permitted to be given to
Lessor hereunder shall be concurrently transmitted to such party or parties at
such addresses as Lessor may from time to time hereafter designate by notice to
Lessee, but delay or failure of delivery to such person shall not affect the
validity of the delivery to Lessor or Lessee.

     (b)  Methods of Delivery:
          ------------------- 

          (i) When personally delivered to the recipient, notice is effective on
delivery.  Delivery to the person apparently designated to receive deliveries at
the subject address is personally delivered if made during business hours (e.g.
receptionist).

                                       32

 
          (ii) When mailed by certified mail with return receipt requested,

addressed notice that is refused, unclaimed, or undeliverable because of an act
or omission of the party to be notified shall be considered to be effective as

undeliverable by the  postal authorities, messenger, or overnight delivery
service.

     Section 17.07.  Waivers.     No waiver of any provision hereof shall be
     -----------------------                                                
deemed a waiver of any other provision hereof or of any subsequent breach of the
same or any other provisions.  Any consent to, or approval of, any act shall not
be deemed to render unnecessary the obtaining of consent to or approval of any
subsequent act.  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.

     Section 17.08.  Recording.     Either Lessor or Lessee shall, upon request
     -------------------------

broom clean and, in as good order and condition as when possession was taken by
Lessee, excepting only ordinary wear and tear (wear and tear which could have
been avoided by first class maintenance practices and in accordance with
industry standards shall not be deemed "ordinary").  Upon expiration or sooner
termination of this Lease, Lessor may reenter the Premises and remove all
persons and property therefrom.  If Lessee shall fail to remove any personal
property which it is entitled or obligated to remove from the Premises upon the
expiration or sooner termination of this Lease, for any cause whatsoever,
Lessor, at its option, may remove the same and store or dispose of them, and
Lessee agrees to pay to Lessor on demand any and all expenses incurred in such
removal and in making the Premises free from all dirt, litter, debris and
obstruction, including all storage and insurance charges.  If the Premises are
not surrendered at the end of the Lease Term, Lessee shall indemnify Lessor
against loss or liability resulting from delay by Lessee in so surrendering the
Premises, including, without limitation, actual damages for lost rent and with
respect to any claims of a successor occupant.

                                       33

of the Premises after expiration of the Lease Term and if Lessor and Lessee have

mortgage or other encumbrances which Lessor may create against the Premises
including all renewals, replacements and extensions thereof provided, however,

disturbed by the mortgagee or anyone claiming under or through such mortgagee.

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
conditions, covenants and restrictions, so long as such easements, rights,
