2.    TERM.
A.    Scheduled Lease Term. Subject to Paragraphs 47 (Tenant’s Option to Terminate Lease) and 48 (Option to Extend Lease for Two (2) Years), the “Term” of this Lease shall be for a period of three (3) years (unless sooner terminated as hereinafter provided) and shall commence on the 1st day of March, 2016 (the Commencement Date”) and end on the 28th day of February, 2019 (the Termination Date”).

arising out of the exercise by Tenant of any early entry right granted hereunder. In the event Tenant’s work in said Premises delays the completion of the Tenant Improvements to be provided by Landlord, if any, or in the event Tenant has not completed construction of its interior improvements, if any, by the scheduled Commencement Date, it is agreed between the parties that this Lease will commence on the scheduled Commencement Date of March 1, 2016 regardless of the construction status of said interior improvements completed or to be completed by Tenant or Landlord, as the case may be. It is the intent of the parties hereto that the commencement of Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent under the Lease not be delayed by any of such causes or by any other act of Tenant (except as expressly provided herein) and, in the event it is so delayed, Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent under the Lease shall commence as of the date it would otherwise have commenced absent delay caused by Tenant.
It is agreed in the event said Lease commences on a date other than the first day of the month the Term of the Lease will be extended to account for the number of days in the partial month. The Basic Rent during the resulting partial month will be pro-rated (for the number of days in the partial month) at the Basic Rent rate scheduled for the projected Commencement Date as shown in Paragraph 4.A.
3.    POSSESSION. Subject to Paragraph 2.0 (Term: Early Entry) above and the terms and conditions stated herein, if Landlord, for any reason whatsoever, cannot deliver possession of said Premises to Tenant at the scheduled Commencement Date, this Lease shall not be void or voidable; no obligation of Tenant shall be affected thereby; nor shall Landlord or Landlord’s agents be liable to Tenant for any loss or damage resulting therefrom; but in that event the commencement and termination dates of the Lease, and all other dates affected thereby shall be revised to conform to the date of Landlord’s delivery of possession, as specified in Paragraph 2.B above. The above is, however, subject to the provision that the period of delay of delivery of the Premises shall not exceed sixty (60) days from the later of (i) the scheduled Commencement Date or (ii) the date this Lease is executed by all parties hereto (except for those delays caused by Tenant, Acts of God, strikes, war, utilities, governmental bodies, weather, unavailable materials, and delays beyond Landlord’s control (“Force Majeure Delays”) shall be excluded in calculating such period) in which instance Tenant, at its option, may, by written notice to Landlord, terminate this Lease; provided Tenant submits said notice to Landlord prior to the expiration of said sixty (60) day period as may be extended by Force Majeure Delays.
4.    RENT.
A.    Basic Rent. Subject to the potential increase in the Aggregate Basic Rent in the event the Basic Rent Abatement Period is terminated as detailed below, Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord at such place as Landlord may designate without deduction, offset, prior notice, or demand, and Landlord agrees to accept as Basic Rent for the Premises the total sum of TWO MILLION ONE HUNDRED FORTY-TWO THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED FORTY-NINE AND 14/100 DOLLARS ($2,142,349.14) (the “Aggregate Basic Rent”) in lawful money of the United States of America, payable as follows:
Basic Rent Abatement. From the scheduled Commencement Date through April 30, 2016 (the “Basic Rent Abatement Period”), the monthly Basic Rent of SIXTY-FOUR THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED FORTY-EIGHT AND 50/100 DOLLARS ($64,948.50) shall be abated and no Basic Rent will be due (the “Basic Rent Abatement”) during the Basic Rent Abatement Period; however, Tenant will be responsible for all Additional Rent expenses as outlined in Paragraph 4.D and the fixed monthly Management Fee as outlined in Paragraph 4.E from the Commencement Date of the Lease. The Basic Rent Abatement is conditioned upon Tenant not committing an act of monetary default throughout the Term of the Lease. If Tenant commits an act of monetary default at any time during the Term and fails to cure said monetary default within the period allowed under this Lease, then (i) Tenant shall immediately pay to Landlord, upon demand, a sum equal to the total amount of Basic Rent Abatement which has been

offset against Basic Rent as of the date of the occurrence of such event of monetary default, and (ii) all of the Basic Rent Abatement which has not been applied as an offset to Basic Rent as of the date of the occurrence of such event of monetary default shall thereby automatically terminate and become null and void, and Tenant shall thereafter pay all Basic Rent when due under this Lease, without regard to the Basic Rent Abatement provisions of this Lease. For example, if Tenant fails to cure a monetary default under the Lease on June 1, 2016, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, upon demand, the Basic Rent Abatement for the period of March 1, 2016 through April 30, 2016 in the amount of $129,897.00 (2 months x $64,948.50 monthly Basic Rent).
Basic Rent Schedule.
Subject to Paragraph 4.A (Rent: Basic Rent Abatement), no Basic Rent shall be due for the period March 1, 2016 through April 30, 2016.
On May 1, 2016, the sum of SIXTY-ONE THOUSAND FIFTY-ONE AND 59/100 DOLLARS ($61,051.59) shall be due, and a like sum due on the first day of each month thereafter, through and including February 1, 2017.
On March 1, 2017, the sum of SIXTY-TWO THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED EIGHTY-THREE AND 14/100 DOLLARS ($62,883.14) shall be due, and a like sum due on the first day of each month thereafter, through and including February 1, 2018.
On March 1, 2018, the sum of SIXTY-FOUR THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED SIXTY-NINE AND 63/100 DOLLARS ($64,769.63) shall be due, and a like sum due on the first day of each month thereafter, through and including February 1, 2019; or until the entire aggregate sum of TWO MILLION ONE HUNDRED FORTY-TWO THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED FORTY-NINE AND 14/100 DOLLARS ($2,142,349.14) has been paid (as said Aggregate Basic Rent may be increased as noted above).
B.    Time for Payment. Full monthly Rent is due in advance on the first day of each calendar month. In the event that the Term of this Lease commences on a date other than the first day of a calendar month, on the date of commencement of the Term hereof Tenant shall pay to Landlord as Rent for the period from such date of commencement to the first day of the next succeeding calendar month that proportion of the monthly Rent hereunder for the number of days between such date of commencement and the first day of the next succeeding calendar month. In the event that the Term of this Lease for any reason ends on a date other than the last day of a calendar month, on the first day of the last calendar month of the Term hereof Tenant shall pay to Landlord as Rent for the period from said first day of said last calendar month to and including the last day of the Term hereof that proportion of the monthly Rent hereunder for the number of days between said first day of said last calendar month and the last day of the Term hereof.
C.    Late Charge. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease, if Landlord (or Landlord’s agent if Landlord has instructed Tenant to make any payment of Rent and/or other amounts due under the Lease directly to Landlord’s agent) does not receive payment of Rent as set forth in this Paragraph 4 and/or other amounts due under the Lease within ten (10) days of the due date, or any part thereof, Tenant agrees to pay Landlord, in addition to the delinquent Rent and/or other amounts that may be due, a late charge for each Rent and/or other payment not received by Landlord (or Landlord’s agent if Landlord has instructed Tenant to make any payment of Rent and/or other amounts due under the Lease directly to Landlord’s agent) within ten (10) days of the due date (“Grace Period”). Said late charge shall equal ten percent (10%) of each payment not received by Landlord prior to the expiration of the Grace Period (“Late Charge”). Said Late Charge shall be paid by Tenant within thirty (30) days after

presentation of an invoice from Landlord or Landlord’s agent setting forth the amount of said Late Charge. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Landlord’s failure to issue a Late Charge invoice in the month of any late payment shall not be considered a waiver of Landlord’s right to collect said Late Charge.
D.    Additional Rent. Beginning with the Commencement Date of the Term of this Lease and continuing throughout the Lease Term, Tenant shall pay to Landlord or to Landlord’s designated agent in addition to the Basic Rent and as Additional Rent the following:
(a)    All Taxes relating to the Premises as set forth in Paragraph 13, and

(c)    Tenant’s Proportional Share of all prorated costs and expenses related to the Ardenwood Technology Park Property Owners’ Association as set forth in Paragraph 46 (Association Dues), and
(d)    All charges, costs and expenses, which Tenant is required to pay hereunder, including, without limitation, utilities, together with all interest and penalties, costs and expenses including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses, that may accrue thereto in the event of Tenant’s failure to pay such amounts, and all damages, reasonable costs and expenses which Landlord may incur by reason of default of Tenant or failure on Tenant’s part to comply with the terms of this Lease. In the event of nonpayment by Tenant of Additional Rent, Landlord shall have all the rights and remedies with respect thereto as Landlord has for nonpayment of Rent.
References to “Proportionate Share” herein and throughout the Lease shall mean the Proportionate Share allocated to the Premises based on (a) the total square footage of Tenant’s Premises as a percentage of the total square footage of the Building (28,866+ square foot Premises divided by 50,688+ square foot Building equals 56.95%) or (b) such other equitable basis as calculated by Landlord.
The Additional Rent due hereunder shall be paid to Landlord or Landlord’s agent (i) within five (5) days for taxes and insurance and within thirty (30) days for all other Additional Rent items after presentation of invoice from Landlord or Landlord’s agent setting forth such Additional Rent and/or (ii) at the option of Landlord, Tenant shall pay to Landlord monthly, in advance, Tenant’s Proportionate Share of an amount estimated by Landlord to be Landlord’s approximate average monthly expenditure for such Additional Rent items, which estimated amount shall be reconciled (i) within one hundred twenty (120) days of the end of each calendar year and (ii) within 120 days of the Termination Date (or as soon thereafter as reasonably possible if, for whatever reason, the Landlord cannot complete the reconciliation within said 120 day periods) or more frequently if Landlord elects to do so at Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion as compared to Landlord’s actual expenditure for said Additional Rent items. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Landlord shall not be required to submit ongoing monthly statements to Tenant reflecting amounts owed as Additional Rent. In the event of any underpayment by Tenant of Additional Rent items, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within thirty (30) days of invoice, any amount of actual expenses expended by Landlord in excess of said estimated amount. In the event of any overpayment by Tenant, Landlord shall credit any amount of estimated payments made by Tenant in excess of Landlord’s actual expenditures for said Additional Rent items to Tenant (provided Landlord may withhold any portion thereof and credit Tenant to cure Tenant’s default in the performance of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, any credit due Tenant for a reconciliation of Additional Rent expenses that occurs after the Lease Termination Date shall be refunded to Tenant; provided however, that Landlord may withhold therefrom the amount

necessary to cover any amounts due on Tenant’s account. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of Landlord’s reconciliation, Tenant shall have the right, at Tenant’s sole expense, to audit, at a mutually convenient time at Landlord’s office, Landlord’s records specifically limited to the foregoing expenses. Such audit must be conducted by Tenant or an independent nationally recognized accounting firm that is not being compensated by Tenant or other third party on a contingency fee basis. Tenant shall submit to Landlord a complete copy of said audit at no expense to Landlord and a written notice stating the results of said audit, and if such notice by Tenant and the respective audit reveals that Landlord has overcharged Tenant, and the audit is not challenged by Landlord, the amount overcharged shall be credited to Tenant’s account within thirty (30) days after completion of Landlord’s review and approval of said audit. The audit rights of Tenant under this Paragraph 4.D are granted for Tenant’s personal benefit and may not be assigned or transferred by Tenant, either voluntarily or by operation of law, in any manner whatsoever, except in the event Tenant assigns this Lease to a Permitted Transfer or obtains Landlord’s written consent to any other assignment; in which event, said audit rights shall continue to be applicable to said assignee(s) only for the applicable period that commences following the date of assignment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no subtenant shall have any right to conduct an audit of Landlord’s books and/or records.
Landlord shall, upon request by Tenant, provide Tenant with copies of individual invoices related to the foregoing actual expenses, either by facsimile or by U.S. mail; however, in no event shall Landlord be obligated to provide duplicate copies of any invoice or other Lease documentation to Tenant and/or Tenant’s representative (if any) for an audit of Tenant’s records outside of Landlord’s office.
E.    Management Fee. Beginning with the Commencement Date of the Term of this Lease, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a monthly management fee (“Management Fee”) for each month during the Term.
Commencing on March 1, 2016 and on the first day of each month thereafter, through and including February 1, 2017, the sum of ONE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED FORTY-EIGHT AND 46/100 DOLLARS ($1,948.46) shall be due each month.

Commencing on March 1, 2018 and on the first day of each month thereafter, through and including February 1, 2019, the sum of TWO THOUSAND SIXTY-SEVEN AND 12/100 DOLLARS ($2,067.12) shall be due each month.
Said Management Fee is due by the first day of each month during the Term of this Lease. Tenant’s failure to pay the monthly Management Fee by the due date will result in a Late Charge being assessed pursuant to the terms of Paragraph 4.0 above.
The reference to “Rent” in this Paragraph 4 includes Basic Rent, Additional Rent, Late Charge and Management Fee. The respective obligations of Landlord and Tenant under this Paragraph shall survive the expiration or other termination of the Term of this Lease, and if the Term hereof shall expire or shall otherwise terminate on a day other than the last day of a calendar year, the actual Additional Rent incurred for the calendar year in which the Term hereof expires or otherwise terminates shall be determined and settled on the basis of the statement of actual Additional Rent for such calendar year and shall be prorated in the proportion which the number of days in such calendar year preceding such expiration or termination bears to 365.

Tenant shall have the right, upon ten (10) days written notice to Landlord, to change the billing address as noted herein; however, Landlord shall send Tenant invoices to only one address of Tenant as identified by Tenant.
G.    Security Deposit. Concurrently with Tenant’s execution of this Lease, Tenant shall deposit with Landlord the cash sum of ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED SEVEN AND 72/100 U.S. Dollars ($137,807.72). Said sum shall be held by Landlord as a Security Deposit for the faithful performance by Tenant of all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease to be kept and performed by Tenant during the Term hereof. If Tenant defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, including, but not limited to, the provisions relating to the payment of Rent and any of the monetary sums due hereunder, Landlord may (but shall not be required to) use, apply or retain all or any part of this Security Deposit for the payment of any other amount which Landlord may spend by reason of Tenant’s default or to compensate Landlord for any other loss or damage which Landlord may suffer by reason of Tenant’s default. If any portion of said Security Deposit is so used or applied, Tenant shall, within five (5) days after written demand therefor, deposit cash with Landlord in the amount sufficient to restore the Security Deposit to its original amount. Tenant’s failure to do so shall be a material breach of this Lease. Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from its general funds, and Tenant shall not be entitled to interest on such Security Deposit. The Security Deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned to Tenant (or at Landlord’s option, to the last assignee of Tenant’s interest hereunder) following the expiration or earlier termination of the Term and after Tenant has vacated the Premises; provided, however, that Landlord may withhold therefrom the amount necessary to cover the cost of restoration of the Premises if Tenant fails to do so as required under Paragraph 5 and to cure any then uncured default by Tenant or other amounts owed by Tenant under this Lease. In the event of termination of Landlord’s interest in this Lease, Landlord shall transfer said Security Deposit to Landlord’s successor in interest whereupon Tenant agrees to release Landlord from liability for the return of such Security Deposit or the accounting therefor. Tenant hereby waives the protection of Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code.
5.    ACCEPTANCE AND SURRENDER OF PREMISES. Subject to Landlord’s completion of its obligations under Paragraph 6.B (“As-Is” Basis: Tenant Improvements to be Constructed by Landlord), by entry hereunder, Tenant accepts the Premises as being in good and sanitary order, condition and repair

and accepts the Building and improvements included in the Premises in their present condition and without representation or warranty by Landlord as to the condition of such Building or as to the use or occupancy which may be made thereof. Any exceptions to the foregoing must be by written agreement executed by Landlord and Tenant. Tenant agrees on the last day of the Term, or on the sooner termination of this Lease, to surrender the Premises promptly and peaceably to Landlord in good condition and repair (damage by Acts of God, fire, normal wear and tear excepted), with all interior walls painted, or cleaned so that they appear freshly painted, and repaired or replaced, if damaged; all floors cleaned and waxed; all carpets cleaned and shampooed and all damage carpeted areas repaired and/or replaced (if the repairs are evident or do not match the existing carpet, Tenant will be required to replace the entire carpeted area); all broken, marred or nonconforming acoustical ceiling tiles replaced; all interior windows washed; all lighting fixtures, interior doors, switch plates and blinds cleaned; the air conditioning and heating systems within the non-common areas of the Premises serviced by a reputable and licensed service firm and in good operating condition and repair; the plumbing and electrical systems and lighting within the non-common areas of the Premises in good order and repair, including replacement of any burned out or broken light bulbs or ballasts (all lights and ballasts must be of the same type, color and wattage); together with all alterations, additions, and improvements (collectively “Alterations”) which may have been made, in, to, or on the Premises, except as referenced in Paragraph 7 (Alterations and Additions), Tenant shall not be required to remove any Alterations that are not subject to restoration pursuant to Landlord’s written Consent to Alterations agreement executed by Tenant and Landlord. Tenant shall be responsible for repairing any damage caused by the installation and/or the removal of Tenant’s trade fixtures and/or Alterations by Tenant or Tenant’s employees, agents or contractors. For all other such Alterations, Tenant shall ascertain from Landlord within thirty (30) days before the end of the Term of this Lease whether Landlord desires to have the Premises or any part or parts thereof restored to their condition and configuration as when the Premises were delivered to Tenant and if Landlord shall so desire, then at Landlord’s option and in Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion, Tenant shall either (i) pay to Landlord a fee in an amount equal to (a) Landlord’s estimated cost to restore the Premises to the configuration and condition that existed when the Premises were delivered Tenant plus (b) an amount equal to the daily prorated Basic Rent due for the last month of the Term times the number of days Landlord estimates are required to complete said restoration or (ii) Tenant shall restore said Premises or such part or parts thereof before the end of this Lease at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. In the event Landlord requires Tenant to pay for the cost of the restoration, the restoration fee shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord regardless of whether or not Landlord elects to restore all or part of said Premises. In the event Tenant is required to complete the restoration and said restoration is not completed prior to the Termination Date, Tenant acknowledges that Tenant shall enter into a Hold Over period pursuant to the terms of Paragraph 30 (Holding Over) and Tenant shall automatically be liable to Landlord for the monthly Hold Over Basic Rent and all other Additional Rent until said restoration is completed by Tenant. In addition to Tenant’s surrender obligations within the non-Common Areas of the Premises, Tenant shall pay Landlord for Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the cost to insure that all Common Area features and systems are in good operating condition and repair, including the lawn and shrubs (including the replacement of any dead or damaged plantings), the sidewalk, driveways and parking areas. Prior to the Termination Date, as part of the surrender of Premises procedures, Landlord will have the Building systems inspected, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, including, but not limited to the HVAC system, plumbing systems and roof, and Tenant shall be responsible for its Proportionate Share (as reasonably determined by Landlord) of all repairs noted on said inspection reports. Tenant, on or before the end of the Term or sooner termination of this Lease, shall remove all of Tenant’s personal property and trade fixtures from the Premises, and all property not so removed on or before the end of the Term or sooner termination of this Lease shall be deemed abandoned by Tenant and title to same shall thereupon pass to Landlord without compensation to Tenant. Landlord may, upon termination of this Lease, remove all moveable furniture and equipment so abandoned by Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost, and repair any damage caused by such removal at Tenant’s sole cost. Upon surrender of the Premises to Landlord, Tenant shall

provide Landlord with keys for all exterior and interior locking doors and Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord the cost of Landlord re-keying all exterior doors (including mechanical rooms) and Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord the cost of Landlord rekeying all interior doors with locks to which Tenant is not able to provide Landlord keys. If Tenant has installed a cardkey system, Tenant shall also be responsible for the costs Landlord incurs in replacing the doors and/or door frames in which such cardkey system was installed and removing any and all equipment and wiring related thereto, unless Landlord notifies Tenant in writing prior to the Lease Termination Date that Landlord wants the cardkey system to remain in the Premises, in which event the cardkey system shall remain on the Premises after the expiration of the Term and Tenant shall provide Landlord with the cardkeys and instructions for such system along with any other equipment that is necessary for the operation of said cardkey system. For example, if software and/or specialized computer systems are required to operate the cardkey system, Tenant shall leave the cardkey pads, the software (hard copies and assignment of the license at no cost to Landlord should Landlord so elect), the computer and the instructions thereto in place in the Premises.

Within ten (10) business days of Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s complete and detailed construction plans, Landlord shall inform Tenant of any questions and/or comments it may have or approve said plans. Upon Landlord’s approval of said plans, Landlord shall prepare, and Landlord and Tenant shall execute, Landlord’s standard Consent to Alterations form, and Tenant’s Initial Improvements shall not be subject to restoration, unless Landlord in the related Consent to Alterations agreement reserves the right to require Tenant to remove, at Tenant’s expense, any and/or all of Tenant’s Initial Improvements, by the Lease Termination Date.

Tenant shall be responsible for (i) obtaining any and all permits required by the governing agencies for (a) Tenant’s Initial Improvements and (b) for the subsequent reconfiguration (if any), (ii) insuring that (a) Tenant’s Initial Improvements meet current building codes and that (b) the subsequent reconfiguration (if any) meets the current building codes, and (iii) for one hundred percent (100%) of all costs and expenses related thereto.

7.    ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS. Tenant shall not make, or suffer to be made, any Alterations to the Premises, or any part thereof, without the written consent of Landlord first had and obtained by Tenant; such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld and such consent to Alterations shall not be valid until such time as said consent is executed by both Landlord and Tenant and a fully executed copy delivered by Landlord to Tenant (“Consent to Alterations”). Provided Tenant requests in writing such predetermination from Landlord, said Consent to Alterations shall specify whether Landlord shall require removal of said Alterations. Any Alteration of the Premises except moveable furniture and trade fixtures, shall at once become a part of the Premises and belong to Landlord. Any such Alterations shall be paid for one hundred percent (100%) by Tenant. Landlord reserves the right to approve all contractors and mechanics proposed by Tenant to make such Alterations.

Tenant shall retain title to all moveable furniture and trade fixtures placed in the Premises. All heating, lighting, electrical, air conditioning, security systems, floor to ceiling partitioning, drapery, carpeting, and floor installations made by Tenant, together with all property that has become an integral part of the Premises, shall not be deemed trade fixtures. Tenant agrees that it will not proceed to make such Alterations until five (5) business days from the receipt of a copy of the fully executed Consent to Alterations, in order that Landlord may post appropriate notices to avoid any liability to contractors or material suppliers for payment for Tenant’s Alterations. Tenant will at all times permit such notices to be posted and to remain posted until the completion of work. Any alterations and/or modifications, and/or improvements to the Premises (collectively “Tenant Work”) made by Tenant shall require that Tenant enter into a written contract with the contractor or the respective vendor, whereby both parties specifically acknowledge that mechanic’s liens will not be effective against the Landlord/owner of the Premises.

As a further condition to its Consent to Alterations to the Premises, Landlord shall require Tenant to pay all expenses in connection with any and all requests for Alterations and Landlord’s Consent to Alterations related thereto, including but not limited to Landlord’s costs, fees and expenses for the processing and administration of the consent documentation and Landlord’s attorneys’ fees (if any).

B.    Maintenance of the Common Areas of the Building. Landlord shall operate, manage and maintain the Common Areas of the Building. As Additional Rent and in accordance with Paragraph 4.D of this Lease, Tenant shall pay its Proportionate Share of the cost of operation (including common utilities), management, maintenance, repair and replacement of the Building (including structural and common areas such as lobbies, restrooms, janitor’s closets, hallways, elevators, mechanical and telephone rooms, stairwells, entrances, spaces above the ceilings and janitorization of said common areas) in which the Premises are located.

hereunder, and benefits of, subsection 1 of Section 1932 and Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code and under any similar law, statute or ordinance now or hereafter in effect.
C.    Structural Maintenance: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Paragraph 11.B above, (i) Landlord shall repair, including replacement related to, damage to the structural shell, foundation, and roof structure (but not the interior improvements, roof membrane, or glazing) of the Building leased hereunder that exist as of the Commencement Date at Landlord’s cost, and (ii) Landlord shall repair, including replacement related to, damage to the structural shell, foundation, and roof structure (but not the interior improvements, roof membrane, or glazing) of the Building leased hereunder occurring after the Commencement Date at Landlord’s cost, however, Landlord shall amortize the cost of the repair pursuant to the formula referenced in subclause (ii) hereof over the useful life of said repair, and Tenant shall be responsible for paying to Landlord, within thirty days of written notice from Landlord, one hundred percent (100%) of Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the Amortized Cost over the remaining Term of the Lease, plus Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the insurance deductible (if such damage is the result of an insured peril); provided Tenant has not caused such damage, in which event Tenant shall be responsible for one hundred percent (100%) of the insurance deductible and any such costs and expense not reimbursed to Landlord by insurance proceeds for repair and/or replacement or damage so caused by the Tenant and shall pay such amount to Landlord within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice from Landlord. For Example: In the event (i) the Amortized Cost of a roof structure repair is $10,000, and (ii) said repair has a useful life of twenty years, Tenant would be charged its Proportionate Share of $854.28 ($10,000 / 20 years / 12 months = $41.67 x 56.95% = $23.73/month x 36 months = $854.28) as Additional Rent, in which case said amount would be due within thirty (30) days of Tenant’s receipt of an invoice from Landlord. Tenant hereby waives all rights under, and benefits of subsection I of Section 1932 and Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code and under any similar law, statute or ordinance now or hereafter in effect.

In the event the Term of the Lease is extended for any reason whatsoever, Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the Amortized Cost of the earlier repair and/or replacement cost shall be increased to include the additional amount payable to Landlord due to the Extended Term of the Lease. For Example: In the event: (i) the roof structure was repaired as illustrated above; and (ii) this Lease is extended for an additional two (2)year period, Tenant would be liable for an additional $569.52 payment to Landlord equal to Tenant’s Proportionate Share ($23.73/month x 24 months) as Additional Rent. Said payment would be due in full within thirty (30) days of Tenant’s receipt of an invoice from Landlord.
D.    Exclusions From Additional Rent: The following items shall be excluded from “Additional Rent”:

If any Real Property Tax is based upon property or rents unrelated to the Premises, then only that part of such Real Property Tax that is fairly allocable to the Premises shall be included within the meaning of the term “Real Property Taxes.” Notwithstanding the foregoing, the term “Real Property Taxes” shall not include estate, inheritance, gift or franchise taxes of Landlord or the federal or state net income tax imposed on Landlord’s income from all sources.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, it is agreed that if any special assessments for capital improvements are assessed, and if Landlord has the option to either pay the entire assessment in cash or go to bond, and if Landlord elects to pay the entire assessment in cash in lieu of going to bond, the entire portion of the assessment assigned to Tenant’s Leased Premises will be prorated over the same period that the assessment would have been prorated had the assessment gone to bond (including interest) and Tenant shall pay its Proportionate Share over the Term remaining in the Lease (including the Extended Lease Term if said Lease Term is extended for any reason whatsoever) as Additional Rent on the first day of the remaining months in the Lease Term (as may be extended).
B.    Taxes on Tenant’s Property. Tenant shall be liable for and shall pay ten days before delinquency, taxes levied against any personal property or trade fixtures placed by Tenant in or about the Premises. If any such taxes on Tenant’s personal property or trade fixtures are levied against Landlord or Landlord’s property or if the assessed value of the Premises is increased by the inclusion therein of a value placed upon such personal property or trade fixtures of Tenant and if Landlord, after written notice to Tenant, pays the taxes based on such increased assessment, which Landlord shall have the right to do regardless of the validity thereof, but only under proper protest if requested by Tenant, Tenant shall within five (5) days after demand, as the case may be, repay to Landlord the taxes so levied against Landlord, or

the proportion of such taxes resulting from such increase in the assessment; provided that in any such event Tenant shall have the right, in the name of Landlord and with Landlord’s full cooperation, to bring suit in any court of competent jurisdiction to recover the amount of such taxes so paid under protest, and any amount so recovered shall belong to Tenant.
14.    ASSESSMENT CREDITS. The demised property herein may be subject to a special assessment levied by the City in which the Premises are located as part of an Improvement District. As a part of said special assessment proceedings (if any), additional bonds were or may be sold and assessments were or may be levied to provide for construction contingencies and reserve funds. Interest shall be earned on such funds created for contingencies and on reserve funds which will be credited for the benefit of said assessment district. To the extent surpluses are created in said district through unused contingency funds, interest earnings or reserve funds, such surpluses shall be deemed the property of Landlord.
15.    LIABILITY INSURANCE. Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, agrees to keep in force from the earlier of the Early Entry Date or the Commencement Date and during the Term of this Lease, a policy of commercial general liability insurance with combined single limit coverage of not less than Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) per occurrence for bodily injury and property damage occurring in, on or about the Premises, including parking and landscaped areas. Such insurance shall be primary and noncontributory as respects any insurance carried by Landlord. The policy or policies effecting such insurance shall name Landlord, Richard T. Peery, as Trustee of the Richard T. Peery Separate Property Trust dated July 20, 1977, as amended; the Richard T. Peery Separate Property Trust; Richard T. Peery as an individual; John Arrillaga, as Trustee under the John Arrillaga Survivor’s Trust dated July 20, 1977, as amended; the John Arrillaga Survivor’s Trust; John Arrillaga, as an individual; and any beneficiaries, trustees and successor trustees, other partners or co-venturers of Landlord or said trusts as additional insureds (collectively “Landlord Entities”), and shall insure any liability of the Landlord Entities, contingent or otherwise, as respects acts or omissions of Tenant, its agents, employees or invitees or otherwise by any conduct or transactions of any of said persons in or about or concerning the Premises, including any failure of Tenant to observe or perform any of its obligations hereunder; shall be issued by an insurance company admitted to transact business in the State of California; and shall provide that the insurance effected thereby shall not be canceled, except upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord. Tenant’s insurance shall be primary as respects to the Landlord Entities, or if excess, shall stand in an unbroken chain of coverage. In either event, any other insurance maintained by the Landlord Entities shall be in excess of Tenant’s insurance and shall not be called upon to contribute with any insurance required to be provided by Tenant. The required insurance shall be reflected on a certificate of insurance of said policy, which certificate shall be delivered to Landlord concurrently with Tenants return of this executed Lease to Landlord. If, during the Term of this Lease, in the reasonable considered opinion of Landlord’s Lender, insurance advisor, or counsel, the amount of insurance described in this Paragraph 15 is not adequate, Tenant agrees to increase said coverage to such reasonable amount as Landlord’s Lender, insurance advisor, or counsel shall deem adequate.
16.    TENANT’S PERSONAL PROPERTY INSURANCE AND WORKMAN’S COMPENSATION INSURANCE. Tenant shall, from the earlier of the Early Entry Date or the Commencement Date, maintain a policy or policies of fire and property damage insurance in “Special Form” with a sprinkler leakage endorsement insuring the personal property, inventory, trade fixtures (and leasehold improvements paid for by Tenant) within the Premises for the full replacement value thereof. The proceeds from any of such policies shall be used for the repair or replacement of such items so insured.

Tenant shall also maintain a policy or policies of workman’s compensation insurance and any other employee benefit insurance sufficient to comply with all laws.
17.    PROPERTY INSURANCE. Throughout the Lease Term, Landlord shall purchase and keep in force, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord (or Landlord’s agent if so directed by Landlord), as Additional Rent and in accordance with Paragraph 4.D of this Lease, Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the deductibles on insurance claims and the cost of, policy or policies of insurance covering loss or damage to and/or destruction of the Building and/or Premises (excluding routine maintenance and repairs and incidental damage or destruction caused by accidents or vandalism for which Tenant is responsible under Paragraph 10) in the amount of the full replacement value thereof, providing protection against those perils included within the classification of “all risks” “special form” insurance and flood and/or earthquake insurance, if available, plus a policy of Rent income insurance in the amount of one hundred (100%) percent of twelve (12) months Basic Rent, plus twelve (12) months Additional Rent. In addition, if such insurance cost is increased due to Tenant’s use of the Premises, Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord, in addition to its Proportionate Share of the deductibles, the full cost of such increase within five (5) days of receipt of the related invoice. Tenant shall have no interest in or any right to the proceeds of any insurance procured by Landlord for the Premises. Insurance premiums for the full insurance year are due from Tenant within five (5) days of receipt of invoice from Landlord and/or its agent and insurance deductibles are payable to Landlord within fifteen (15) days of receipt of invoice from Landlord.
In addition and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Paragraph 17, each party to this Lease hereby waives all rights of recovery against the other party or its officers, employees, agents and representatives for loss or damage to its property or the property of others under its control, arising from any cause insured against under the fire and extended “special form” property coverage (excluding, however, any loss resulting from Hazardous Material contamination of the Property) required to be maintained by the terms of this Lease to the extent full reimbursement of the loss/claim is received by the insured party. Each party required to carry property insurance hereunder shall cause the policy evidencing such insurance to include a provision permitting such release of liability (“waiver of subrogation endorsement”); provided, however, that if the insurance policy of either releasing party prohibits such waiver, then this waiver shall not take effect until consent to such waiver is obtained. If such waiver is so prohibited, the insured party affected shall promptly notify the other party thereof. In the event the waivers are issued to the parties and are not valid under current policies and/or subsequent insurance policies, the non-complying party will provide, to the other party, thirty (30) days’ advance notification of the cancellation of the subrogation waiver, in which case neither party will provide such subrogation waiver thereafter and this Paragraph will be null and void. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the foregoing waiver of subrogation shall not include any loss resulting from Hazardous Material contamination of the Property or any insurance coverage relating thereto.
18.    INDEMNIFICATION. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant and Tenant hereby waives all claims against Landlord for any injury to or death of any person or damage to or destruction of property in or about the Premises by or from any cause whatsoever, including, without limitation, gas, fire, oil, electricity or leakage of any character from the roof, walls, basement or other portion of the Premises but excluding, however, the willful misconduct or negligence of Landlord, its agents, servants, employees, invitees or contractors employed by Landlord to do work at the Premises during the Term of the Lease. Except as to injury to persons or damage to property to the extent arising from the willful misconduct or the negligence of Landlord, its agents, servants, employees, invitees, or contractors, Tenant shall hold Landlord harmless from and defend Landlord against any and all expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, in connection therewith, arising out of any injury to or death of any person or damage to or destruction of property occurring in, on or about the Premises, or any part thereof, caused by Tenant, its subtenants and/or assignees and their respective agents, employees, invitees and/or contractors, accruing

and/or occurring during the Term of this Lease. The provisions of this Paragraph 18 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease.
19.    COMPLIANCE. Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall promptly comply with all laws, statutes, ordinances and governmental rules, regulations or requirements now or hereafter in effect governing use or occupancy of the Premises including, but not limited to, compliance required by the governing agency(ies) due to any improvements to the Premises made by and/or for Tenant; with the requirements of any board of fire underwriters or other similar body now or hereafter constituted; and with any direction or occupancy certificate issued pursuant to law by any public officer; provided, however, that no such failure shall be deemed a breach of the provisions if Tenant, immediately upon notification, commences to remedy or rectify said failure. The judgment of any court of competent jurisdiction or the admission of Tenant in any action against Tenant, whether Landlord be a party thereto or not, that Tenant has violated any such law, statute, ordinance or governmental rule, regulation, requirement, direction or provision, shall be conclusive of that fact as between Landlord and Tenant. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, comply with any and all requirements pertaining to said Premises, of any insurance organization or company, necessary for the maintenance of reasonable fire and public liability insurance covering requirements pertaining to said Premises. The provisions of this Paragraph 19 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease.
20.    LIENS. Tenant shall keep the Premises free from any liens arising out of any work performed, materials furnished or obligation incurred by Tenant. In the event that Tenant shall not, within ten (10) days following notice of the imposition of such lien, cause the same to be released of record, Landlord shall have, in addition to all other remedies provided herein and by law, the right, but no obligation, to cause the same to be released by such means as it shall deem proper, including payment of the claim giving rise to such lien. All sums paid by Landlord for such purpose, and all expenses incurred by it in connection therewith, shall be payable to Landlord by Tenant on demand with interest at the higher of the (i) prime rate of interest as quoted by the Bank of America or (ii) Landlord’s borrowing rate (the “Interest Rate”).
21.    ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
A.    Requirements. Tenant shall not assign, transfer, or hypothecate the leasehold estate under this Lease, or any interest therein, and shall not sublet the Premises, or any part thereof, or any right or privilege appurtenant thereto, or suffer any other person or entity to occupy or use the Premises, or any portion thereof, without, in each case, the prior written consent of Landlord which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. Notwithstanding the above, in the event Tenant enters into a merger and/or acquisition agreement whereby fifty percent (50%) or more of Tenant’s stock and/or assets are transferred to a third party entity, not including any offering of Tenant’s stock on any nationally recognized public stock market and any subsequent purchases and sales of such stock thereon (“Change in Control”), said Change in Control will require Landlord’s consent pursuant to the terms of this Paragraph 21.A but subject to Paragraph 21.E (Permitted Transfers), and Landlord may, at Landlord’s option, require that said acquiring entity also be named as a Tenant under this Lease; however, a sale of Tenant’s capital stock through any public or over-the-counter exchange shall not be deemed an assignment or a Change in Control. Landlord will not approve more than two (2) subleases to be effective at any one point in time. Tenant’s failure to obtain Landlord’s prior written consent before entering into any such assignment, transfer and/or subletting shall be considered a default under this Lease and Landlord shall retain all of its rights under the Lease, including the right to elect, at Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion, to terminate either the Lease and/or the related sublease. As a condition for Landlord granting its consent to any sublease, Landlord shall require for each such subletting, that: (i) the sublease be a triple net sublease and that the basic rent due under any such sublease be no less than the then current market rent for

        
Multi Tenant/Single Parcel    Page 20 of 43

BUILDING:    Ardenwood I-4
PROPERTY:    1-0514

LEASE ID:    0514-WAFE01-01


subleases with annual increases at the then prevailing market rent for subleases; (ii) the sublease shall require that the security deposit due under the sublease be in the form of a letter of credit drawn upon an institutional lender acceptable and accessible to Landlord in form and content reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, with the letter of credit being assignable to Landlord, at no cost to Landlord, upon notice to said financial institution of a default by Tenant under the Lease; (iii) the sublease shall not provide for subtenant to have an option to extend the term of the sublease or an option to expand the sublet space; and (iv) the Tenant shall pay to Landlord, monthly throughout the term of each approved sublease, fifty percent (50%) of all rents and/or additional consideration due Tenant from the subtenant in excess of the Rent payable by Tenant to Landlord hereunder for each such subleased space (“Excess Rent”) (with said Excess Rent subject to the terms of Paragraph 4.C (Late Charge) and Paragraph 24 (Bankruptcy and Default); provided, however, that before sharing of payment to Landlord of such Excess Rent, Tenant shall first be entitled to recover from such Excess Rent the amount of the reasonable leasing commission related to said transaction paid by Tenant to a third party broker not affiliated with Tenant. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, Tenant is not allowed to assign or transfer its interest in the Lease or sublease any portion of the Premises during the Basic Rent Abatement Period. Tenant shall, by thirty (30) days written notice, advise Landlord of its intent to assign or transfer Tenant’s interest in the Lease or sublet the Premises or any portion thereof for any part of the Term hereof. If more than forty-nine percent (49%) of the Premises is to be subleased, Landlord may, within thirty (30) days after receipt of said written notice, in its sole discretion, elect to terminate this Lease as to the portion of the Premises described in Tenant’s notice on the projected sublease commencement date specified in Tenant’s notice by giving Tenant written notice of such election to terminate. If no such notice to terminate is received by Tenant within said thirty (30) day period, Tenant may proceed to locate an acceptable sublessee, assignee, or other transferee for presentment to Landlord for Landlord’s approval, all in accordance with the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Paragraph 21. Tenant shall provide Landlord with (a) a copy of the assignment and/or other transfer agreement and a copy of the certification of the change in corporate identity from the Secretary of State in the case of an assignment, or (b) a copy of the sublease in the case of a sublease for Landlord’s review, and upon Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s request to sublease and/or assign, Tenant and the assignee, transferee or subtenant shall execute Landlord’s standard written consent. If Tenant intends to sublet the entire Premises and Landlord elects to terminate this Lease, this Lease shall be terminated on the date specified in Landlord’s notice of its election to so terminate the Lease. If, however, this Lease shall terminate pursuant to the foregoing with respect to less than all the Premises, the Rent, as defined and reserved hereinabove shall be adjusted on a pro rata basis to the number of square feet retained by Tenant, and this Lease as so amended shall continue in full force and effect and Landlord, at its cost and expense, shall separately demise the remaining portion of the Premises leased to Tenant. In the event Tenant is allowed to assign, transfer or sublet the whole or any part of the Premises, with the prior written consent of Landlord, no assignee, transferee or subtenant shall assign or transfer this Lease, either in whole or in part, or sublet the whole or any part of the Premises, without also having obtained the prior written consent of Landlord. Notwithstanding the above, in no event shall Landlord consent to a sub-sublease. A consent of Landlord to one assignment, transfer, hypothecation, subletting, occupation or use by any other person shall not release Tenant from any of Tenant’s obligations hereunder or be deemed to be a consent to any subsequent similar or dissimilar assignment, transfer, hypothecation, subletting, occupation or use by any other person. Any such assignment, transfer, hypothecation, subletting, occupation or use without such consent shall be void and shall constitute a breach of this Lease by Tenant and shall, at the option of Landlord exercised by written notice to Tenant, terminate this Lease. The leasehold estate under this Lease shall not, nor shall any interest therein, be assignable for any purpose by operation of law without the written consent of Landlord. As a condition to its consent, Landlord shall require Tenant to pay all expenses in connection with any and all subleases and/or assignments and/or any amendments related thereto, including but not limited to Landlord’s fees for the processing and administration of the consent documentation and Landlord’s attorneys’ fees (if any), and Landlord shall require Tenant’s subtenant, assignee or transferee (or other assignees or transferees) to

assume in writing all of the obligations under this Lease and for Tenant to remain liable to Landlord under the Lease. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, under no event will Landlord consent to an assignment or transfer of less than One Hundred Percent (100%) of the Leased Premises.
B.    Grounds to Refuse Proposed Transfer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord and Tenant agree that it shall not be unreasonable for Landlord to refuse to consent to a proposed assignment, sublease or other transfer (“Proposed Transfer”) if the Premises or any other portion of the Parcel would become subject to additional or different Government Requirements as a direct or indirect consequence of the Proposed Transfer and/or the Proposed Transferee’s use and occupancy of the Premises and the Property. However, Landlord may, in its sole discretion, consent to such a Proposed Transfer where Landlord is indemnified by Tenant and (i) the subtenant or (ii) the assignee, in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord and/or to Landlord’s counsel, from and against any and all costs, expenses, obligations and liability arising out of the Proposed Transfer and/or the Proposed Transferee’s use and occupancy of the Premises and the Property.
C.    Voluntary Termination of Lease – Required Sublease Language. Any and all sublease agreement(s) between Tenant and any and all subtenant(s) (“Subtenant”) (which agreements must be consented to by Landlord, pursuant to the requirements of this Lease) shall contain the following language:
“If Landlord and Tenant jointly and voluntarily elect, for any reason whatsoever, to terminate the Master Lease prior to the scheduled Master Lease termination date, then, if Landlord so elects, this Sublease (if then still in effect) shall terminate concurrently with the termination of the Master Lease. Subtenant expressly acknowledges and agrees that (1) the voluntary termination of the Master Lease by Landlord and Tenant and the resulting termination of this Sublease shall not give Subtenant any right or power to make any legal or equitable claim against Landlord, including without limitation any claim for interference with contract or interference with prospective economic advantage, and (2) Subtenant hereby waives any and all rights it may have under law or at equity against Landlord to challenge such an early termination of the Sublease, and unconditionally releases and relieves Landlord, and its officers, directors, employees and agents, from any and all claims, demands, and/or causes of action whatsoever (collectively, “Claims”), whether such matters are known or unknown, latent or apparent, suspected or unsuspected, foreseeable or unforeseeable, which Subtenant may have arising out of or in connection with any such early termination of this Sublease. Subtenant knowingly and intentionally waives any and all protection which is or may be given by Section 1542 of the California Civil Code which provides as follows: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with debtor.
The term of this Sublease is therefore subject to early termination. Subtenant’s initials here below evidence (a) Subtenant’s consideration of and agreement to this early termination provision, (b) Subtenant’s acknowledgment that, in determining the net benefits to be derived by Subtenant under the terms of this Sublease, Subtenant has anticipated the potential for early termination, and (c) Subtenant’s agreement to the general waiver and release of Claims above.

D.    State of Incorporation Change; Name Change. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, Tenant’s re-incorporation in another jurisdiction and/or the act of Tenant changing Tenant’s legal

name shall not be considered an assignment; however, (i) Tenant shall provide Landlord with notice of such change in Tenant’s name and/or state of incorporation, which notice shall include a copy of the certification from the Secretary of State and (ii) Tenant and Landlord shall execute Landlord’s standard acknowledgement for any such change in Tenant’s name and/or state of incorporation.
E.    Permitted Transfers. In addition to and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Paragraph 21.A above, and provided said Lease Term has commenced and the Basic Rent Abatement Period has expired and Tenant is not in default of this Lease beyond the applicable cure period, Landlord hereby agrees that: (1) Landlord shall consent to Tenant’s assigning or subletting said Lease to: (i) any parent or subsidiary corporation, or corporation with which Tenant merges or consolidates provided said entity’s use of the Premises is the same as Tenant’s use and that (a) said affiliate or successor owns all or substantially all of the assets of Tenant and becomes jointly and severally liable with Tenant for the Term of the Lease from the Lease Commencement Date through the scheduled Lease Termination Date (or the extended Lease Termination Date if said date is extended), (b) the net worth of said parent or subsidiary corporation, or said corporation has a net worth equal to or greater than Tenant’s net worth (x) at the time of Lease execution or (y) at the time of such assignment, merger, or consolidation, whichever is greater (collectively “Permitted Transfers”), and (c) Tenant shall give Landlord written notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of the proposed purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization; or (ii) any third party or entity to whom Tenant, as an ongoing concern, sells all or substantially all of its assets; provided that (a) said affiliate or successor owns all or substantially all of the assets of Tenant, (b) the net worth of the resulting or acquiring corporation has a net worth after the merger, consolidation or acquisition equal to or greater than the net worth of Tenant (x) at the time of Lease execution or (y) at the time of such merger, consolidation or acquisition, whichever is greater ((i) and (ii) above collectively referred to as “Permitted Transfers”), and (c) Tenant shall give Landlord written notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of the proposed purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization; and (2) subject to Tenant complying with the terms and conditions referenced herein, Landlord shall waive its right to terminate the Lease due to a Permitted Transfer.
In the event Tenant transfers fifty percent (50%) or more of Tenant’s stock to a third party entity and such transfer does not include the sale of Tenant’s assets, said transfer of stock shall not require Landlord’s approval provided that (a) the net worth of said third party entity following such stock transfer is equal to or greater than the net worth of Tenant (x) at the time of Lease execution or Lease Commencement Date or (y) immediately before the stock transfer and any such transfer does not leave the Tenant as a shell organization and (b) Tenant provides Landlord written notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of the proposed stock transfer (unless such 30-day notice would be in violation of applicable law, in which case, said notice will be given immediately following the expiration date of any such legal restriction).
No such assignment or subletting or sale of stock will release the Tenant from its liability and responsibility under this Lease. Notwithstanding the above, Tenant shall be required to (a) give Landlord written notice prior to such assignment or subletting or sale of stock to any party as described above, (b) execute Landlord’s consent document prepared by Landlord reflecting the assignment or subletting and (c) pay Landlords costs for processing said Consent prior to the effective date of said assignment or sublease. Nothing herein shall be deemed to permit (i) any assignee to further assign this Lease or sublet all or any portion of the Premises or (ii) any subtenant to assign its interest in the sublease to any other party without Landlord’s prior written consent.
22.    SUBORDINATION AND MORTGAGES. In the event Landlord’s title or leasehold interest is now or hereafter encumbered by a deed of trust, upon the interest of Landlord in the Premises and Building in which the demised Premises are located, to secure a loan from a lender (hereinafter referred to

        
Multi Tenant/Single Parcel    Page 23 of 43

BUILDING:    Ardenwood I-4
PROPERTY:    1-0514

LEASE ID:    0514-WAFE01-01


as “Lender”) to Landlord, Tenant shall, at the request of Landlord or Lender, execute in writing an agreement (in form reasonably acceptable to Tenant), subordinating its rights under this Lease to the lien of such deed of trust, or, if so requested, agreeing that the lien of Lender’s deed of trust shall be or remain subject and subordinate to the rights of Tenant under this Lease. Notwithstanding any such subordination, Tenant’s possession under this Lease shall not be disturbed if Tenant is not in default (and if in default, Tenant’s right to cure said default has not expired) and so long as Tenant shall pay all Rent and observe and perform all of the provisions set forth in this Lease and any subordination agreement shall reflect the agreement of the Lender to the same.
23.    ENTRY BY LANDLORD. Landlord reserves, and shall at all reasonable times after at least twenty four (24) hours’ notice (except in emergencies) have the right to enter the Premises to inspect them; to perform any services to be provided by Landlord hereunder; to make repairs or provide any services to a contiguous tenant(s) (if any); to submit the Premises to prospective purchasers, mortgagers or tenants; to post notices of non-responsibility; and to alter, improve or repair the Premises or other parts of the Building, all without abatement of Rent, and may erect scaffolding and other necessary structures in or through the Premises where reasonably required by the character of the work to be performed; provided, however that the business of Tenant shall be interfered with to the least extent that is reasonably practical and Landlord shall comply with Tenant’s reasonable security measures. Any entry to the Premises by Landlord for the purposes provided for herein shall not under any circumstances be construed or deemed to be a forcible or unlawful entry into or a detainer of the Premises or an eviction, actual or constructive, of Tenant from the Premises or any portion thereof.
24.    BANKRUPTCY AND DEFAULT. The commencement of a bankruptcy action or liquidation action or reorganization action or insolvency action or an assignment of or by Tenant for the benefit of creditors, or any similar action undertaken by Tenant, or the insolvency of Tenant, shall, at Landlord’s option, constitute a breach of this Lease by Tenant. If the trustee or receiver appointed to serve during a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization, insolvency or similar action elects to reject Tenant’s unexpired Lease, the trustee or receiver shall notify Landlord in writing of its election within thirty (30) days after an order for relief in a liquidation action or within thirty (30) days after the commencement of any action.
Within thirty (30) days after the court approval of the assumption of this Lease, the trustee or receiver shall cure (or provide adequate assurance to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord that the trustee or receiver shall cure) any and all previous defaults under the unexpired Lease and shall compensate Landlord for all actual pecuniary loss and shall provide adequate assurance of future performance under said Lease to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Adequate assurance of future performance, as used herein, includes, but shall not be limited to: (i) assurance of source and payment of Rent, and other consideration due under this Lease; (ii) assurance that the assumption or assignment of this Lease will not breach substantially any provision, such as radius, location, use, or exclusivity provision, in any agreement relating to the above described Premises.
Nothing contained in this section shall affect the existing right of Landlord to refuse to accept an assignment upon commencement of or in connection with a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization or insolvency action or an assignment of Tenant for the benefit of creditors or other similar act. Nothing contained in this Lease shall be construed as giving or granting or creating an equity in the demised Premises to Tenant. In no event shall the leasehold estate under this Lease, or any interest therein, be assigned by voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding without the prior written consent of Landlord. In no event shall this Lease or any rights or privileges hereunder be an asset of Tenant under any bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization proceedings.

The failure to perform or honor any covenant, condition or representation made under this Lease shall constitute a default under this Lease by Tenant upon expiration of the appropriate grace period hereinafter provided. Tenant shall have a period of five (5) days from the date of written notice from Landlord within which to cure any default in the payment of Rent or adjustment thereto. Tenant shall have a period of thirty (30) days from the date of written notice from Landlord within which to cure any other non-monetary default under this Lease; provided, however, that with respect to non-monetary defaults not involving Tenant’s failure to pay Basic Rent or Additional Rent, Tenant shall not be in default if (i) more than thirty (30) days is required to cure such non-monetary default and (ii) Tenant commences cure of such default as soon as reasonably practicable after receiving written notice of such default from Landlord and thereafter continuously and with due diligence prosecutes such cure to completion. Upon an uncured default of this Lease by Tenant, Landlord shall have the following rights and remedies in addition to any other rights or remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity:
(a)    The rights and remedies provided for by California Civil Code Section 1951.2 including but not limited to, recovery of the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of rental loss for the same period that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided, as computed pursuant to subsection (b) of said Section 1951.2. Any proof by Tenant under subparagraphs (2) and (3) of Section 1951.2 of the California Civil Code of the amount of rental loss that could be reasonably avoided shall be made in the following manner: Landlord and Tenant shall each select a licensed real estate broker in the business of renting property of the same type and use as the Premises and in the same geographic vicinity. Such two real estate brokers shall select a third licensed real estate broker, and the three licensed real estate brokers so selected shall determine the amount of the Rent loss that could be reasonably avoided from the balance of the Term of this Lease after the time of award. The decision of the majority of said licensed real estate brokers shall be final and binding upon the parties hereto. As part of such damages, Landlord shall have the right to recover that portion of any leasing commission paid by Landlord in connection with this Lease applicable to the unexpired Term of this Lease.
(b)    The rights and remedies provided by California Civil Code Section 1951.4, which allows Landlord to continue the Lease in effect and to enforce all of its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover Rent as it becomes due, for so long as Landlord does not terminate Tenant’s right to possession; acts of maintenance or preservation, efforts to relet the Premises, or the appointment of a receiver upon Landlord’s initiative to protect its interest under this Lease shall not constitute a termination of Tenant’s right to possession.
(c)    The right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Tenant in accordance with applicable law.
(d)    To the extent permitted by law, the right and power to enter the Premises and remove therefrom all persons and property, to store such property in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of and for the account of Tenant, and to sell such property and apply such proceeds therefrom pursuant to applicable California law. Landlord may from time to time sublet the Premises or any part thereof for such term or terms (which may extend beyond the Term of this Lease) and at such Rent and such other terms as Landlord in its reasonable sole discretion may deem advisable, with the right to make alterations and repairs to the Premises. Upon each subletting, (i) Tenant shall be immediately liable to pay Landlord, in addition to indebtedness other than Rent due hereunder, the reasonable cost of such subletting, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and any real estate commissions actually paid, and the cost of such reasonable alterations and repairs incurred by Landlord and the amount, if any, by which the Rent hereunder for the period of such subletting (to the extent such period does not exceed the Term hereof) exceeds the amount to be paid as Rent for the Premises for such period or (ii) at the option

of Landlord, rents received from such subletting shall be applied first to payment of indebtedness other than Rent due hereunder from Tenant to Landlord; second, to the payment of any costs of such subletting and of such alterations and repairs; third, to payment of Rent due and unpaid hereunder; and the residue, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future Rent as the same becomes due hereunder. If Tenant has been credited with any Rent to be received by such subletting under option (i) and such Rent shall not be promptly paid to Landlord by the subtenant(s), or if such rentals received from such subletting under option (ii) during any month be less than that to be paid during the month by Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall pay any such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly. No taking possession of the Premises by Landlord shall be construed as an election on its part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention be given to Tenant. Notwithstanding any such subletting without termination, Landlord may at any time hereafter elect to terminate this Lease for such previous breach.
(e)    The right to have a receiver appointed for Tenant upon application by Landlord, to take possession of the Premises and to apply any rental collected from the Premises and to exercise all other rights and remedies granted to Landlord pursuant to subparagraph (d) above.
25.    ABANDONMENT. Tenant shall not vacate or abandon the Premises at any time during the Term of this Lease and if Tenant shall abandon, vacate or surrender said Premises, or be dispossessed by the process of law, or otherwise, any personal property belonging to Tenant and left on the Premises shall be deemed to be abandoned, at the option of Landlord, except such property as may be mortgaged to Landlord. Notwithstanding the above, Tenant shall not be in default under the Lease if it leaves all or any part of Premises vacant so long as (i) Tenant is performing all of its other obligations under the Lease including the obligation to pay Rent, (ii) Tenant provides on-site security during normal business hours for those parts of the Premises left vacant, (iii) such vacancy does not materially and adversely affect the validity or coverage of any policy of insurance carried by Landlord with respect to the Premises, and (iv) the utilities and heating and ventilation systems are operated and maintained to the extent necessary to prevent damage to the Premises or its systems.
26.    DESTRUCTION. In the event the Premises are destroyed in whole or in part from any cause, Landlord may, at its option:
(a)    Rebuild or restore the Premises to their condition prior to the damage or destruction, or
(b)    Terminate this Lease if either (i) the Premises is damaged to the extent of thirty-three and one third percent (33 1/3%) or more of the replacement cost, exclusive of footings, foundations and floor slabs or (ii) in the event of an uninsured event or if insurance proceeds are insufficient to cover one hundred percent (100%) of the rebuilding costs net of the deductible (“Shortfall”). However, in such event of Landlord’s election to terminate for a Shortfall, Tenant shall have the right to elect to pay to Landlord the Shortfall provided it provides Landlord with written notification of its commitment to do so within five (5) business days of receipt of Landlord’s notice to terminate the lease as provided in this section (ii) and agrees to fund the Shortfall by making payment to Landlord within thirty (30) days of receipt of Landlord’s invoice for said Shortfall.
If Landlord does not give Tenant notice in writing within thirty (30) days from the destruction of the Premises of its election to either rebuild and restore them, or to terminate this Lease, Landlord shall be deemed to have elected to rebuild or restore them, in which event Landlord agrees, at its expense except for any deductible, which is the responsibility of the Tenant, promptly to rebuild or restore the Premises to their condition prior to the damage or destruction. Tenant shall be entitled to a reduction in Rent from the

date of such damage or destruction, provided Tenant is not using any portion of such damaged area, while such repair is being made in the proportion that the area of the Premises rendered untenantable by such damage bears to the total area of the Premises. If Landlord initially estimates that the rebuilding or restoration will exceed one hundred eighty (180) days or if Landlord does not complete the rebuilding or restoration within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of destruction (such period of time to be extended for delays caused by the fault or neglect of Tenant or because of Acts of God, acts of public agencies, labor disputes, strikes, fires, freight embargos, rainy or stormy weather, inability to obtain materials, supplies or fuels, acts of contractors or subcontractors, or delay of the contractors or subcontractors due to such causes or other contingencies beyond the control of Landlord) (the “Allowed Restoration Period”), then, provided the Premises is damaged to the extent of 33 1/3% or more of the replacement cost (exclusive of footings, foundations and floor slabs) and provided the damage or destruction does not result from routine maintenance and repairs or damage or destruction caused by vandalism and accidents for which Tenant is responsible under Paragraph 10 (Tenant Maintenance), Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving written notice to Landlord within five days following the date Tenant receives Landlord’s written notice stating that the restoration will exceed the Allowed Restoration Period. Regardless of whether Landlord and/or Tenant elects to terminate this Lease early as provided herein, Tenant shall remain liable for the insurance deductible as it relates to the Premises. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Landlord’s obligation to rebuild or restore shall be limited to the Building and interior improvements constructed by Landlord as they existed as of the Commencement Date of the Lease and shall not include restoration of Tenant’s trade fixtures, equipment, merchandise, or any improvements, alterations or additions made by Tenant to the Premises, which Tenant shall forthwith replace or fully repair at Tenant’s sole cost and expense provided this Lease is not canceled according to the provisions above.
Unless this Lease is terminated pursuant to the foregoing provisions, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect. Tenant hereby expressly waives the provision of Section 1932, Subdivision 2, in Section 1933, Subdivision 4 of the California Civil Code.
In any event that the Building in which the Premises are situated is damaged or destroyed to the extent of not less than thirty-three and one third percent (33 1/3%) of the replacement cost thereof, Landlord may elect to terminate this Lease, whether the Premises be injured or not. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Landlord may terminate this Lease in the event of an uninsured event or if insurance proceeds are insufficient to cover one hundred percent of the rebuilding costs net of the deductible.
Without regard to whether this Lease is terminated pursuant to the foregoing, Tenant, upon demand by Landlord, shall pay to Landlord Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the deductibles from any casualty policy Landlord carries pursuant to Paragraph 17 (Property Insurance).
27.    EMINENT DOMAIN. If all or any part of the Premises shall be taken by any public or quasi-public authority under the power of eminent domain or conveyance in lieu thereof, this Lease shall terminate as to any portion of the Premises so taken or conveyed on the date when title vests in the condemnor, and Landlord shall be entitled to any and all payment, income, rent, award, or any interest therein whatsoever which may be paid or made in connection with such taking or conveyance, and Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord or otherwise for the value of any unexpired Term of this Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, any compensation specifically awarded Tenant for loss of business, Tenant’s personal property, moving costs or loss of goodwill, shall be and remain the property of Tenant.

If any action or proceeding is commenced for such taking of the Premises or any part thereof, or if Landlord is advised in writing by any entity or body having the right or power of condemnation of its intention to condemn the Premises or any part thereof, then Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving Tenant written notice thereof within sixty (60) days of the date of receipt of said written advice, or commencement of said action or proceeding, or taking conveyance, which termination shall take place as of the first to occur of the last day of the calendar month next following the month in which such notice is given or the date on which title to the Premises shall vest in the condemnor.
In the event of such a partial taking or conveyance of the Premises, if the portion of the Premises taken or conveyed is so substantial that the Tenant can no longer reasonably conduct its business, Tenant shall have the privilege of terminating this Lease within sixty (60) days from the date of such taking or conveyance, upon written notice to the Landlord of its intention so to do, and upon giving of such notice this Lease shall terminate on the last day of the calendar month next following the month in which such notice is given, upon payment by Tenant of the Rent from the date of such taking or conveyance to the date of termination.
If a portion of the Premises be taken by condemnation or conveyance in lieu thereof and neither Landlord nor Tenant shall terminate this Lease as provided herein, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as to the part of the Premises not so taken or conveyed, and the Rent herein shall be apportioned as of the date of such taking or conveyance so that thereafter the Rent to be paid by Tenant shall be in the ratio that the area of the portion of the Premises not so taken or conveyed bears to the total area of the Premises prior to such taking.
28.    SALE OR CONVEYANCE BY LANDLORD. In the event of a sale or conveyance of the Premises or any interest therein, by any owner of the reversion then constituting Landlord, the transferor shall thereby be released from any further liability upon any of the terms, covenants or conditions (express or implied) herein contained in favor of Tenant, and in such event, insofar as such transfer is concerned, Tenant agrees to look solely to the responsibility of the successor in interest of such transferor in and to the Premises and this Lease for any obligations of Landlord first accruing after the date of such transfer, unless the successor in interest has also agreed in writing to assume any prior obligations of Landlord, in which event Tenant shall look to the successor in interest for any obligations of Landlord that may have accrued prior to as well as after said sale or conveyance by Landlord. This Lease shall not be affected by any such sale or conveyance, and Tenant agrees to attorn to the successor in interest of such transferor.
29.    ATTORNMENT TO LENDER OR THIRD PARTY. In the event the interest of Landlord in the land and Building in which the Premises are located (whether such interest of Landlord is a fee title interest or a leasehold interest) is encumbered by deed of trust, and such interest is acquired by the lender or any third party through judicial foreclosure or by exercise of a power of sale at private trustee’s foreclosure sale, Tenant hereby agrees to attorn to the purchaser at any such judicial foreclosure or foreclosure sale and to recognize such purchaser as the Landlord under this Lease. In the event the lien of the deed of trust securing the loan from a Lender to Landlord is prior and paramount to the Lease, this Lease shall nonetheless continue in full force and effect for the remainder of the unexpired Term hereof, at the same rental herein reserved and upon all the other terms, conditions and covenants herein contained. In addition to and not withstanding anything to the contrary above, this Lease shall bind any successor in interest to Landlord, including any party foreclosing any security interest to which the Premises may be subject, including foreclosure by judicial process and sale under any power provided in any deed of trust, and Tenant shall not be required to waive any right herein provided.

30.    HOLDING OVER. Any holding over by Tenant after expiration or other termination of the Term of this Lease shall not constitute a renewal or extension of the Lease or give Tenant any rights in or to the Premises except as expressly provided in this Lease. Any holding over after the expiration or other termination of the Term of this Lease shall be construed to be a tenancy from month to month, on the same terms and conditions herein specified insofar as applicable except that the monthly Basic Rent shall be increased to an amount equal to one hundred seventy-five percent (175%) of the monthly Basic Rent required during the last month of the Term (“Hold Over Basic Rent”); provided, however, that the monthly Rent shall be prorated based on the actual number of days in the month for any partial month of the holding over. Holding over conduct within the meaning of the Lease and this Paragraph 30 shall also include the failure by Tenant to surrender the Premises on the Termination Date in the physical condition described in Paragraphs 5 (Acceptance and Surrender of Premises), 7 (Alterations and Additions) and 10 (Tenant Maintenance) for which conduct Tenant shall be subject to the Hold Over Basic Rent under this Paragraph until the Premises is restored to the condition required under this Lease. If Tenant is responsible for paying to Landlord the cost of the restoration work pursuant to Paragraph 5 (Acceptance and Surrender of Premises) in lieu of Tenant completing said restoration, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord, at the Basic Rent rate for the last month of the Term, for the estimated time it would take to complete said restoration, regardless of whether or not Landlord elects to make such restoration to the Premises.
31.    CERTIFICATE OF ESTOPPEL. Tenant shall at any time within ten (10) days of receipt of notice from Landlord execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord an estoppel statement in writing (i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying that this Lease, as so modified, is in full force and effect) and the date to which the Basic Rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, and (ii) acknowledging that there are not, to Tenant’s knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of Landlord hereunder, or specifying such defaults, if any, are claimed. Any such statement may be conclusively relied upon by any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the Premises. Tenant’s failure to deliver such statement within such time shall be conclusive upon Tenant that this Lease is in full force and effect, without modification except as may be represented by Landlord; that there are no uncured defaults in Landlord’s performance, and that not more than one month’s Basic Rent has been paid in advance.
32.    CONSTRUCTION CHANGES. It is understood that the description of the Premises and the location of ductwork, plumbing and other facilities therein are subject to such minor changes as Landlord or Landlord’s architect determines to be desirable in the course of construction of the Premises, and no such changes shall affect this Lease or entitle Tenant to any reduction of Rent hereunder or result in any liability of Landlord to Tenant. Landlord does not guarantee the accuracy of any drawings supplied to Tenant and verification of the accuracy of such drawings rests with Tenant.
33.    RIGHT OF LANDLORD TO PERFORM. All terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease to be performed or observed by Tenant shall be performed or observed by Tenant at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and without any reduction of rent. If Tenant shall fail to pay any sum of money, or other Rent, required to be paid by it hereunder and such failure shall continue for five (5) days after written notice thereof by Landlord or shall fail to perform any other term or covenant hereunder on its part to be performed, and such failure shall continue for thirty (30) days after written notice thereof by Landlord (or such longer grace period as provided under Paragraph 24), Landlord, without waiving or releasing Tenant from any obligation of Tenant hereunder, may, but shall not be obliged to, make any such payment or perform any such other term or covenant on Tenant’s part to be performed. All sums so paid by Landlord and all necessary costs of such performance by Landlord together with interest thereon at the Interest Rate (as defined in Paragraph 20 (Liens) above) from the date of such payment or performance by Landlord, shall be paid (and Tenant covenants to make such payment) to Landlord within five (5) days after demand

by Landlord, and Landlord shall have (in addition to any other right or remedy of Landlord) the same rights and remedies in the event of nonpayment by Tenant as in the case of failure by Tenant in the payment of Rent hereunder.
34.    ATTORNEYS’ FEES.
A.    In the event that either Landlord or Tenant should bring suit for the possession of the Premises, for the recovery of any sum due under this Lease, or because of the breach of any provision of this Lease, or for any other relief against the other party hereunder, then all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by the prevailing party therein shall be paid by the other party, which obligation on the part of the other party shall be deemed to have accrued on the date of the commencement of such action and shall be enforceable whether or not the action is prosecuted to judgment.
B.    Should Landlord be named as a defendant in any suit brought against Tenant in connection with or arising out of Tenant’s occupancy hereunder, Tenant shall pay to Landlord its costs and expenses incurred in such suit, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
C.    Any deposition of Landlord and/or its agents, whether initiated by Landlord or Tenant, shall be administered and taken at Landlord’s place of business.
35.    WAIVER. The waiver by either party of the other party’s failure to perform or observe any term, covenant or condition herein contained to be performed or observed by such waiving party shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such term, covenant or condition or of any subsequent failure of the party failing to perform or observe the same or any other such term, covenant or condition therein contained, and no custom or practice which may develop between the parties hereto during the Term hereof shall be deemed a waiver of, or in any way affect, the right of either party to insist upon performance and observance by the other party in strict accordance with the terms hereof.
36.    NOTICES. All notices, demands, requests, advices or designations which may be or are required to be given by either party to the other hereunder shall be in writing.

37.    EXAMINATION OF LEASE. Submission of this instrument for examination or signature by Tenant does not constitute a reservation of or option for a lease, and this instrument is not effective as a lease or otherwise until its execution and delivery by both Landlord and Tenant.
38.    DEFAULT BY LANDLORD. Landlord shall not be in default unless Landlord fails to perform obligations required of Landlord within a reasonable time, but in no event later than (30) days after receipt of written notice by Tenant to Landlord and to the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises whose name and address shall have heretofore been furnished to Tenant in writing, specifying wherein Landlord has failed to perform such obligations; provided, however, that if the nature of Landlord’s obligations is such that more than thirty (30) days are required for performance, then Landlord shall not be in default if Landlord commences performance within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes the same to completion. Landlord shall, however, make a reasonable effort to take immediate action on an emergency situation that impairs (i) the safety of the Building and/or (ii) the occupancy of the Building.
39.    CORPORATE AUTHORITY. If Tenant is a corporation (or a partnership), each individual executing this Lease on behalf of said corporation (or partnership) represents and warrants that he is duly authorized to execute and deliver this Lease on behalf of said corporation (or partnership) in accordance with the by-laws of said corporation (or partnership in accordance with the partnership agreement) and that this Lease is binding upon said corporation (or partnership) in accordance with its terms.

No sign, placard, picture, advertisement, name or notice shall be inscribed, displayed or printed or affixed on or to any part of the outside of the Building or any exterior windows of the Building without the written consent of Landlord first had and obtained and Landlord shall have the right to remove any such sign, placard, picture, advertisement, name or notice without notice to Tenant and at the expense of Tenant. If Tenant is allowed to print or affix or in any way place a sign in, on, or about the Premises, upon expiration or other sooner termination of this Lease, Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, shall both remove all Tenant signs and repair all damage in such a manner as to restore all aspects of the appearance of the Premises and the monument sign to the condition prior to the placement of said signs.
All approved signs and/or lettering on sign monuments and/or interior Common Area sign directories, if any, shall be printed, painted, affixed or inscribed at the sole cost and expense of Tenant by a licensed contractor approved of by Landlord.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Paragraph 41 and subject to (i) Tenant complying with the Design Guidelines of the Ardenwood Corporate Commons, a copy of which has been provided to Tenant and (ii) Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s signage, Tenant shall be entitled to install, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, Tenant’s name on (i) Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the existing monument sign for the Building (the exact placement and size of Tenant’s signage is to be approved by Landlord), (ii) on the exterior glass adjacent to the entrance to the main lobby of the Building (the exact placement and size of Tenant’s sign is to be approved by Landlord), and (iii) on the entrance door to Tenant’s Leased Premises, with the understanding that Tenant shall be liable for repairing any damage to said monument and door resulting from the installation and or removal of said signs upon Lease Termination.

Landlord and Tenant agree as follows with respect to the existence or use of “Hazardous Materials” (as defined herein) on, in, under or about the Premises and real property located beneath said Premises and the Common Areas of the Parcel, which includes the entire parcel of land on which the Premises are located as shown in Green on Exhibit A attached hereto (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Property”):
A.    As used herein, the term “Hazardous Materials” shall mean any material, waste, chemical, mixture or byproduct which is or hereafter is defined, listed or designated under Environmental Laws (defined below) as a pollutant, or as a contaminant, or as a toxic or hazardous substance, waste or material, or any other unwholesome, hazardous, toxic, biohazardous, or radioactive material, waste, chemical, mixture or byproduct, or which is listed, regulated or restricted by any Environmental Law (including, without limitation, petroleum hydrocarbons or any distillates or derivatives or fractions thereof, polychlorinated biphenyls, or asbestos). As used herein, the term “Environmental Laws” shall mean any applicable Federal, State of California or local government law (including common law), statute, regulation, rule, ordinance, permit, license, order, requirement, agreement, or approval, or any determination, judgment, directive, or order of any executive or judicial authority at any level of Federal, State of California or local government (whether now existing or subsequently adopted or promulgated) relating to pollution or the protection of the environment, ecology, natural resources, or public health and safety.
B.    Tenant shall obtain Landlord’s written consent, which may reasonably be withheld in Landlord’s discretion, prior to the occurrence of any Tenant’s Hazardous Materials Activities (defined below) (and Tenant shall first provide Landlord with a list of said materials used and specify the location in the Premises where said materials are used and stored, the method of storage and disposal of the same, and a copy of the related permits); provided, however, that Landlord’s consent shall not be required for normal use in compliance with applicable Environmental Laws of customary household and office supplies, such as mild cleaners, lubricants and copier toner. Tenant has informed Landlord that after the Commencement Date of this Lease and after Tenant obtains the applicable government agency use permits and provides a copy of the same to Landlord, Tenant shall use and store certain Hazardous Materials in the Premises to be used in Tenant’s medical research and development (hereinafter, collectively, referred to as “Disclosed Hazardous Materials”).

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the event the governing agencies’ use, storage and/or disposal requirements are greater than those noted above, said governing agencies’ requirements shall apply. As used herein, the term “Tenant’s Hazardous Materials Activities” shall mean any and all use, handling, generation, storage, disposal, treatment, transportation, release, discharge, or emission of any Hazardous Materials on, in, beneath, to, from, at or about the Property, or by Tenant or by any of Tenant’s agents, employees, contractors, vendors, invitees, visitors or its future subtenants or assignees.

shall be conducted in strict, full compliance with applicable Environmental Laws at Tenant’s expense, and shall not result in any contamination of the Property or the environment.

E.    Loss of Option to Terminate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Option to Terminate is automatically forfeited by Tenant (without notice from Landlord) in the event Tenant is, at any time during the Term of this Lease, in default of said Lease and if Tenant does not completely cure said default within five (5) days for a monetary default and thirty (30) days for a non-monetary default; provided, however that with respect to non-monetary defaults not involving Tenant’s failure to pay Basic Rent or Additional Rent, Tenant shall not be in default of any non-monetary obligation if (i) more than thirty (30) days is required to cure such non-monetary default, and (ii) Tenant commences cure of such default as soon as reasonably practicable after receiving written notice of such default from Landlord and thereafter continuously and with due diligence prosecutes such cure to completion. In the event said Option to Terminate is forfeited as stated herein, Tenant shall have no further Option to Terminate the Lease.

A.    Notice; Deadline. Tenant shall give Landlord written notice of Tenant’s exercise of this Option to Extend not earlier than twelve (12) months prior to the scheduled Lease Termination Date (February 28, 2018), but not later than nine (9) months prior to the scheduled Lease Termination Date (May 31, 2018), in which event the Lease shall be considered extended for an additional two (2) years with: (i) the Basic Rent and Security Deposit to be determined pursuant to Paragraph 48.B below; (ii) the Security Deposit and terms and conditions subject to amendment by Landlord (Landlord, in its sole and absolute discretion, may, but is not required to, incorporate its current Lease provisions that are standard in Landlord’s leases as of the date of Tenant’s exercise of its Option to Extend); and (iii) this Paragraph 48 deleted. In the event that Tenant fails to timely exercise Tenant’s Option to Extend as set forth herein in writing, Tenant shall have no further Option to Extend this Lease, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect for the full remaining Term hereof, absent this Paragraph 48. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Landlord has the right to rescind the Option to Extend at any time during the initial Lease Term provided Landlord has plans to demolish or enlarge the Building or change the use or zoning of the Building and/or the business complex which said Building is a part. In such event Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing of said rescission.
B.    Notice and Acceptance of Terms. In the event Tenant timely exercises Tenant’s Option to Extend as set forth herein and provided Landlord does not elect to rescind said Option to Extend, Landlord shall, within fifteen (15) days after receipt of Tenant’s exercise of its Option to Extend, advise Tenant of the terms and conditions and Security Deposit required for the Extended Term of the Lease. The Basic Rent during the Extended Term would commence at $2.46 per square foot per month on March 1, 2019 and said per square foot rate will increase by three percent (3%) on March 1, 2020.

force and effect for the full remaining Term hereof absent of this Paragraph 48, with Landlord having no further responsibility or obligation to Tenant with respect to Tenant’s Option to Extend.

In the event that Landlord consents to a sublease or assignment under Paragraph 21 (except a Permitted Transfer as provided for in Paragraph 21.E), the option granted herein and any Extended Term thereunder shall be void and of no force and effect (without notice from Landlord), whether or not Tenant shall have purported to exercise such option prior to such assignment or sublease, and this Lease will continue in full force and effect for the full remaining Term hereof, absent of this Paragraph 48.
D.    Loss of Option to Extend Right. It is agreed that if Tenant is at any time prior to exercising its Option to Extend in default of this Lease and has failed to cure the default in the cure period provided for under this Lease, this Option to Extend is automatically forfeited by Tenant (without notice from Landlord). In the event said Option to Extend is forfeited as stated herein, Tenant shall have no further Option to Extend this Lease. It is further agreed that if Tenant has exercised its Option to Extend and is subsequently in default prior to, or at any time prior to the commencement of the Extended Term and has failed to cure the (a) monetary default within five (5) days from the date of written notice from Landlord, or (b) material non-monetary default within the cure period provided for under this Lease, Landlord may at its sole and absolute discretion, cancel and rescind Tenant’s Option to Extend, and, unless said Lease is also terminated due to said uncured default, this Lease will continue in full force and effect for the full remaining Term hereof, absent of this Paragraph 48.
