When combined with the previous subleased space on the third and seventh floors of 42,244 square feet brings the combined total of subleased square feet to 45,477, or approximately 10.2% of the common space (building rentable area is 447,917square feet).

b.Any term not defined but capitalized herein shall have the meanings ascribed to it in the Prime Lease.
2.
Sublease of Additional Subleased Premises.
a.Sublessor hereby grants to Sublessee, and Sublessee hereby accepts from Sublessor, subject to the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of the Prime Lease and of this Sublease, a sublease to the Additional Subleased Premises, together with all the rights and privileges appurtenant thereto, in its present "AS IS", "WHERE IS" condition and for the term of this Sublease.









b.
Sublessee's occupancy of the Additional Subleased Premises will commence
on December 1, 2014.
c.At the termination of this Sublease, Sublessee shall return the Additional Subleased Premises to Sublessor broom--clean, in as good repair and condition as on the Effective Date, reasonable wear and tear excepted.
3.Use and Lawful Occupancy. The Additional Subleased Premises shall be used only for Sublessee's office and for no other purpose, but subject in all events to the terms of the Prime Lease and applicable zoning laws. Sublessee shall be solely responsible for and comply with all laws relating to the use and occupancy of the Additional Subleased Premises.
4.
Term and Termination.
a.Subject to Section 4{b). the "Term” of this Sublease shall commence on the Effective Date and end on August 31, 2015.

b.This Sublease shall terminate on the first to occur of the following: (i) one (I) calendar day before the expiration of the term of the Prime Lease; (ii) the date upon which the Prime Lease is terminated as a result of any provisions of the Prime Lease; and (iii) the date upon which Sublessee's right to occupancy of the Additional Subleased Premises is terminated pursuant to this Sublease or as provided by law.
5.
Sublessee's Payment Obligations.
a.Rent Sublessee covenants and agrees to pay to Sublessor, on a monthly basis, an additional amount equal to four thousand five hundred and eighty dollars ($4.580.08) or a combined total of sixty seven thousand nine hundred forty six and eight cents ($67,946.08) per month including any applicable sales taxes ("Base Rent") commencing as of the Effective Date.

b.Common Area Operating Expenses. In addition to Base Rent, Sublessee covenants and agrees to pay to Sublessor, on a monthly basis, 66.7235% of the Common Area Operating Expenses allocated by Landlord to Sublessor (42,244 subleased square feet of the total 63,312 square feet of rented space). This excludes the additional 3,233 square feet of additional space leased. As used herein, Base Rent together with Sublessee's percentage of the Common Area Operating Expenses, collectively, "Rent").
c.Holdover. If Sublessee fails to surrender the Additional Subleased Premises or any portion thereof at the expiration or earlier termination of the Term, then it will be conclusively presumed that the value to Sublessee of remaining in possession, and the loss that will be suffered by Sublessor as a result thereof far exceed the Rent and additional rent that would have been payable had the Term continued during such holdover period. Therefore, if Sublessee (or anyone claiming through Sublessee) does not immediately surrender the Additional Subleased Premises or any portion thereof upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Term, then the rent payable by Sublessee shall be increased to two (2) times then applicable base rent for the Additional Subleased Premises as set forth in the Prime Lease. Such rent shall be computed by Sublessor and paid by Sublessee on a monthly basis and shall be payable on the first day of such holdover period and the first day of each calendar month thereafter during such holdover period until the Additional Subleased Premises have been vacated. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Sublease, Sublessor's acceptance of such rent shall not in any manner adversely affect Sublessor's other rights and remedies, including Sublessor's right to evict Sublessee and to recover all damages. Any such holdover shall be deemed to be a tenancy at sufferance and not a tenancy at will or tenancy from month to month. In no event shall any holdover be deemed a permitted extension or renewal of the Term, and nothing contained herein shall be construed to constitute Sublessor's consent to any holdover or to give Sublessee any right with respect thereto.





d.Cleaning. The Additional Subleased Premises shall be cleaned in accordance with the standards set forth in the Prime Lease and included in the monthly Rent
e.
Time of Payment.    All money required to be paid by Sublessee under this
Sublease (other than pursuant to Section 6) shall be paid on or before the first (1st day of each calendar
month during the term of this Sublease and shall be paid to Sublessor without notice or demand and in lawful money of the United States, without abatement, deduction or setoff at the offices of Sublessor set forth in Section 14 or such other place as Sublessor may specify. Delays in such payment beyond the fifth (5 calendar day of month will result in the amounts due accruing interest each month at a per annum rate equal to the Default Rate in the Prime Lease.
6.Additional Services. Sublessee acknowledges that it shall have access to and the use of the kitchen of Sublessor.
7.Alterations and Lobby Sign. Sublessee shall not make any installations, alterations, or additions to the Additional Subleased Premises without the prior written consent of Sublessor, and then only pursuant to plans and specifications approved by Sublessor in advance in each instance including, without limitation, the installation of signs or physical alternation to the Additional Subleased Premises. Notwithstanding the above.
