liability therefor, nor shall such failure affect the validity of this Lease or
the obligations of Lessee hereunder or extend the term hereof; but, in such

notice in writing to Lessor within ten (10) days thereafter, cancel this Lease,
in which event the parties shall be discharged from all obligations hereunder;
provided, however, that, Lessor shall return any money previously deposited by
Lessee and provided further, that if such written notice by Lessee is not

this Lease hereunder shall terminate and be of no further force or effect.

the Lease term.
5. SECURITY DEPOSIT. Lessee shall deposit with Lessor upon execution
hereof the security deposit set forth in
paragraph 1.9 of the Basic Lease Provisions as security for Lessee's faithful
performance of Lessee's obligations hereunder. If Lessee fails to pay rent or
other charges due hereunder, or otherwise defaults with respect to any provision
of this Lease, Lessor may use, apply or retain all or any portion of said
deposit for the payment of any rent or other charge in default for the payment
of any other sum to which Lessor may become obligated by reason of Lessee's
default, or to compensate Lessor for any loss or damage which Lessor may suffer
thereby. If Lessor so uses or applies all or any portion of said deposit, Lessee
shall within ten (10) days after written demand therefor deposit cash with
Lessor in an amount sufficient to restore said deposit to the full amount then
required of Lessee. Lessor shall not be required to keep said security deposit
separate from its general accounts. Said deposit, or so much thereof as has not
heretofore been applied by Lessor, shall be returned without payment of interest
or other increment for its use, to Lessee (or, at Lessor's option, to the last
assignee, if any, of Lessee's interest hereunder) at the expiration of the term
hereof, and after Lessee has vacated the Premises. No trust relationship is
created herein between Lessor and Lessee with respect to said Security Deposit
and Lessor shall not be obligated to pay Lessee any interest thereon.
6.1 USE. The Premises shall be used and occupied only for the
purpose set forth in paragraph 1.4 of the Basic Lease Provisions or any other
lawful use which is reasonably comparable to that use and for no other purpose.
6.2 COMPLIANCE WITH LAW.
(a) Lessor warrants to Lessee that the Premises, in the state
existing on the date that the Lease term commences, but without regard to
alterations or improvements made by Lessee or the use for which Lessee will
occupy the Premises, does not violate any covenants or restrictions of record,
or any applicable building code, regulation or ordinance in effect on such Lease
term Commencement Date. In the event it is determined that this warranty has
been violated, then it shall be the obligation of the Lessor, after written
notice from Lessee, to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost and expense, rectify any
(b) Except as provided in paragraph 6.2(a) Lessee shall, at
Lessee's expense, promptly comply with all applicable statutes, ordinances,
rules, regulations, orders, covenants and restrictions of record, and
requirements of any fire insurance underwriters or rating bureaus, now in effect
or which may hereafter come into effect, whether or not they reflect a change in
policy from that now existing, during the term or any part of the term hereof,
relating to the Premises and the particular occupation and use by Lessee of the
Premises. Lessee shall conduct its business in a lawful manner and shall not use
or permit the use of the Premises or the Common Areas in any manner that will
create waste or a nuisance or shall disturb other occupants of the Office
(c) Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary
contained in this Lease, Lessee shall not be responsible for compliance with any
laws, codes, ordinances or other governmental directives where such compliance
is not related specifically to Lessee's use and occupancy of the Premises. For
example, if any governmental authority should require any portion of the Office
Building Project or the Premises to be structurally strengthened against
earthquake, or should require the removal of Hazardous Materials from the
Premises and such measures are imposed as a general requirement applicable to
all tenants rather than as a condition to Lessee's specific use or occupancy of
the Premises, such work shall be performed by and at the sole cost of Lessor.
6.3 CONDITION OF PREMISES.
(a) Lessor shall deliver the Premises to Lessee in a clean
condition on the Lease Commencement Date (unless Lessee is already in
possession) and Lessor warrants to Lessee that the plumbing, lighting,
electrical, ceiling tiles, window coverings, mechanical systems, air
conditioning, and heating system in the Premises shall be in good operating
condition. In the event that it is determined that this warranty has been
violated, then it shall be the obligation of Lessor, after receipt of written
notice from Lessee setting forth with specificity the nature of the violation,
to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost, rectify such violation.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, Lessee hereby
accepts the Premises and the Office Building Project in their condition existing
as of the Lease Commencement Date or the date that Lessee takes possession of
the Premises, whichever is earlier, subject to all applicable zoning, municipal,
county and state laws, ordinances and regulations governing and regulating the
use of the Premises, and any easements, covenants or restrictions of record, and
accepts this Lease subject thereto and to all matters disclosed thereby and by
any exhibits attached hereto. Lessee acknowledges that it has satisfied itself
by its own independent investigation that the Premises are suitable for its
intended use, and that neither Lessor nor Lessor's agent or agents has made any
representation or warranty as to the present or future suitability of the
Premises, Common Areas, or Office Building Project for the conduct of Lessee's
7. MAINTENANCE, REPAIRS, ALTERATIONS AND COMMON AREA SERVICES.
7.1 Lessor's Obligations. Lessor shall keep the Office Building
Project, including the Premises, interior and exterior walls, roof, and common
areas, and the equipment whether used exclusively for the Premises or in common
with other premises, in good condition and repair.. Except as provided in
paragraph 9.5, there shall be no abatement of rent or liability of Lessee on
account of any injury or interference with Lessee's business with respect to any
improvements, alterations or repairs made by Lessor to the Office Building
Project or any part thereof. Lessee expressly waives the benefits of any statute
now or hereafter in effect which would otherwise afford Lessee the right to make
repairs at Lessor's expense or to terminate this Lease because of Lessor's
failure to keep the Premises in good order, condition and repair.
7.2 LESSEE'S OBLIGATIONS.
(a) Notwithstanding Lessor's obligation to keep the Premises
in good condition and repair, Lessee shall be responsible for payment of the
cost thereof to Lessor as additional rent for that portion of the cost of any
maintenance and repair of the Premises, or any equipment (wherever located) that
serves only Lessee or the Premises, to the extent such
cost is attributable to causes beyond normal wear and tear.
(b) On the last day of the term hereof, or on any sooner
termination, Lessee shall surrender the Premises to Lessor in the same condition
as received, ordinary wear and tear excepted, clean and free of debris. Any
damage or deterioration of the Premises shall not be deemed ordinary wear and
tear if the same could have been prevented by good maintenance practices by
Lessee and such maintenance is the responsibility of Lessee hereunder. Lessee
shall repair any damage to the Premises occasioned by the installation or
removal of Lessee's trade fixtures, alterations, furnishings and equipment.
Except as otherwise stated in this Lease, Lessee shall leave the air lines,
power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting fixtures, air
conditioning, window coverings, wall coverings, carpets, wall paneling, ceilings
and plumbing on the Premises in good operating condition.
7.3 ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS.
(a) Lessee shall not, without Lessor's prior written consent,
make any alterations, improvements, additions, Utility Installations or repairs
in, on or about the Premises, or the Office Building Project. As used in this
paragraph 7.3 the term "Utility Installation" shall mean carpeting, window and
wall coverings, power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting
fixtures, air conditioning, plumbing, and telephone and telecommunication wiring
and equipment. At the expiration of the term, Lessor may require the removal of
any or all of said alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations, and the restoration of the Premises and the Office Building
Project to their prior condition, at Lessee's expense. Should Lessor permit
Lessee to make its own alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations, Lessee shall use only such contractor as has been expressly
approved by Lessor, and Lessor may require Lessee to provide Lessor, at Lessee's
sole cost and expense, a lien and completion bond in an amount equal to one and
one-half times the estimated cost of such improvements, to insure Lessor against
any liability for mechanic's and materialmen's liens and to insure completion of
the work. Should Lessee make any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations without the prior approval of Lessor, or use a contractor not
expressly approved by Lessor, Lessor may, at any time during the term of this
Lease, require that Lessee remove any part or all of the same.
(b) Any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations in or about the Premises or the Office Building Project that
Lessee shall desire to make shall be presented to Lessor in written form, with
proposed detailed plans. If Lessor shall give its consent to Lessee's making
such alteration, improvement, addition or Utility Installation, the consent
shall be deemed conditioned upon Lessee acquiring a permit to do so from the
applicable governmental agencies, furnishing a copy thereof to Lessor prior to
the commencement of the work, and compliance by Lessee with all conditions of
said permit in a prompt and expeditious manner.
(c) Lessee shall pay, when due, all claims for labor or
materials furnished or alleged to have been furnished to or for Lessee at or for
use in the Premises, which claims are or may be secured by any mechanic's or
materialmen's lien against the Premises, the Building or the Office Building
Project, or any interest therein.
(d) Lessee shall give Lessor not less than ten (10) days'
notice prior to the commencement of any work in the Premises by Lessee, and
Lessor shall have the right to post notices of non-responsibility in or on the
Premises or the Building as provided by law. If Lessee shall, in good faith,
contest the validity of any such lien, claim or demand, then Lessee shall, at
its sole expense, defend itself and Lessor against the same and shall pay and
satisfy any such adverse judgment that may be rendered thereon before
enforcement thereof against the Lessor or the Premises, the Building or the
(Office Building Project, upon the condition that if Lessor shall require,
Lessee shall furnish to Lessor a surety bond satisfactory to Lessor in an amount
equal to such contested lien claim or demand indemnifying Lessor against
liability for the same and holding the Premises, the Building and the Office
Building Project free from the effect of such lien or claim. In addition, Lessor
may require Lessee to pay Lessor's reasonable attorneys' fees and costs in
participating in such action if Lessor shall decide it is in Lessor's best
interest so to do.
(e) All alterations, improvements, additions and Utility
Installations (whether or not such Utility Installations constitute trade
fixtures of Lessee), which may be made to the Premises by Lessee, including but
not limited to, floor coverings, panelings, doors, drapes, built-ins, moldings,
sound attenuation, and lighting and telephone or communication systems, conduit,
wiring and outlets, shall be made and done in a good and workmanlike manner and
of good and sufficient quality and materials and shall be the property of Lessor
and remain upon and be surrendered with the Premises at the expiration of the
Lease term, unless Lessor requires their removal pursuant to paragraph 7.3(a).
Provided Lessee is not in default, notwithstanding the provisions of this
paragraph 7.3(e), Lessee's personal property and equipment, other than that
which is affixed to the Premises so that it cannot be removed without material
damage to the Premises or the Building, and other than Utility Installations,
shall remain the property of Lessee and may be removed by Lessee subject to the
provisions of paragraph 7.2.
(f) Lessee shall provide Lessor with as-built plans and
specifications for any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
7.4 UTILITY ADDITIONS. Lessor reserves the right to install new or
additional utility facilities throughout the Office Building Project for the
benefit of Lessor or Lessee, or any other lessee of the Office Building Project,
including, but not by way of limitation, such utilities as plumbing, electrical
systems, communication systems, and fire protection and detection systems, so
long as such installations do not unreasonably interfere with Lessee's use of

equivalent, in an amount of not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence of bodily
injury and property damage combined or in a greater amount as reasonably
determined by Lessor and shall insure Lessee with Lessor as an additional

force during the term of this Lease a policy of Combined Single Limit Bodily
Injury and Broad Form Property Damage Insurance, plus coverage against such

contractors and/or invitees. If necessary, all property insurance policies
required under this Lease shall be endorsed to so provide.
8.7 INDEMNITY. Lessee shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessor and
its agents, Lessor's master or ground lessor, partners and lenders, from and
against any and all claims for damage to the person or property of anyone or any
entity arising from Lessee's use of the Office Building Project, or from the
conduct of Lessee's business or from any activity, work or things done,
permitted or suffered by Lessee in or about the Premises and shall further
indemnify and hold harmless Lessor from and against any and all claims, costs
and expenses arising from any breach or default in the performance of any

contractors, employees, or invitees on or about the Premises, and from and
against all costs, attorney's fees, expenses and liabilities incurred by Lessor
as the result of any such use, conduct, activity, work, things done, permitted
or suffered, breach, default or negligence, and in dealing reasonably therewith,
including but not limited to the defense or pursuit of any claim or any action

hereby assumes all risk of damage to property of Lessee or injury to persons,
in, upon or about the Office Building Project arising from any cause and Lessee
hereby waives all claims in respect thereof against Lessor. Notwithstanding the
foregoing or anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, Lessee shall not
hold Lessor harmless nor shall Lessee indemnify nor defend Lessor from claims,
costs, expenses or liabilities resulting from Lessor's negligence, willful
misconduct or breach of this Lease.

Lessor shall not be liable for injury to Lessee's business or any loss of income
therefrom or for loss of or damage to the goods, wares, merchandise or other
property of Lessee, Lessee's employees, invitees, customers, or any other person
in or about the Premises or the Office Building Project, nor shall Lessor be
liable for injury to the person of Lessee, Lessee's employees, agents or
contractors, whether such damage or injury is caused by or results from theft,
fire, steam, electricity, gas, water or rain, or from the breakage, leakage,
obstruction or other defects of pipes, sprinklers, wires, appliances, plumbing,
air conditioning or lighting fixtures, or from any other cause whether said
damage or injury results from conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other
portions of the Office Building Project, or from other sources or places, or
from new construction or the repair, alteration or improvement of any part of
the Office Building Project, or of the equipment, fixtures or appurtenances
applicable thereto, and regardless of whether the cause of such damage or injury
or the means of repairing the same is inaccessible, Lessor shall not be liable
for any damages arising from any act or neglect of any other lessee, occupant or
user of the Office Building Project, nor from the failure of Lessor to enforce
the provisions of any other lease of any other lessee of the Office Building
Project. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained in
this Lease, Lessee the foregoing exemption of Lessor from liability shall not
apply to injury, loss or other claims resulting from Lessor's negligence,
willful misconduct or breach of this Lease.

(f) "Insured Loss" shall mean damage or destruction which was
caused by an event required to be covered by the insurance described in
paragraph 8. The fact that an Insured Loss has a deductible amount shall not
make the loss an uninsured loss.

the date of the occurrence of such damage, in which event this Lease shall
terminate as of the date of the occurrence of such damage.
9.3 PREMISES BUILDING TOTAL DESTRUCTION, OFFICE BUILDING PROJECT
TOTAL DESTRUCTION. Subject to the provisions of paragraphs 9.4 and 9.5, if at
any time during the term of this Lease there is damage, whether or not it is an
Insured Loss, which falls into the classifications of either (i) Premises
Building Total Destruction, or (ii) Office Building Project Total Destruction,
then Lessor may at Lessor's option either (i) repair such damage or destruction
as soon as reasonably possible at Lessor's expense (to the extent the required
materials are readily available through usual commercial channels) to its
condition existing at the time of the damage, but not Lessee's fixtures,
equipment or tenant improvements, and this Lease shall continue in full force
and effect, or (ii) give written notice to Lessee within thirty (30) days after
the date of occurrence of such damage of Lessor's intention to cancel and
terminate this Lease, in which case this Lease shall terminate as of the date of
the occurrence of such damage.
9.4 DAMAGE NEAR END OF TERM.
(a) Subject to paragraph 9.4(b), if at any time during the
last twelve (12) months of the term of this Lease there is substantial damage to
the Premises, either party may at such party's option cancel and terminate this
Lease as of the date of occurrence of such damage by giving written notice to
Lessee of Lessor's election to do so within thirty (30) days after the date of
occurrence of such damage.
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph 9.4(a), in the event that Lessee
has an option to extend or renew this Lease, and the time within which said
option may be exercised has not yet expired, Lessee shall exercise such option,
if it is to be exercised at all, no later than twenty (20) days after the
occurrence of an Insured Loss falling within the classification of Premises
Damage during the last twelve (12) months of the term of this Lease. If Lessee
duly exercises such option during said twenty (20) day period, Lessor shall, at
Lessor's expense, repair such damage, but not Lessee's fixtures, equipment or
tenant improvements, as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall
continue in full force and effect. If Lessee fails to exercise such option
during said twenty (20) day period, then Lessor may at Lessor's option terminate
and cancel this Lease as of the expiration of said twenty (20) day period by
giving written notice to Lessee of Lessor's election to do so within ten (10)
days after the expiration of said twenty (20) day period, notwithstanding any
term or provision in the grant of option to the contrary.
9.5 ABATEMENT OF RENT; LESSEE'S REMEDIES.
(a) In the event Lessor elects or is required to repair or
restore the Building or Premises pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph 9,
and any part of the Premises are not usable (including loss of use due to loss
of access or
essential services), the rent payable hereunder (including Lessee's Share of
Operating Expense Increase) for the period during which such damage, repair or
restoration continues shall be abated. Except for said abatement of rent, if
any, Lessee shall have no claim against Lessor for any damage suffered by reason
of any such damage, destruction, repair or restoration, except as otherwise
provided herein or by law.
(b) If Lessor shall elect or be obligated to repair or restore
the Premises or the Building under the provisions of this Paragraph 9 and shall
not commence such repair or restoration within forty-five (45) days after such
occurrence, or if Lessor shall not complete the restoration and repair within
three (3) months after such occurrence, Lessee may at Lessee's option cancel and
terminate this Lease by giving Lessor written notice of Lessee's election to do
so at any time prior to the commencement or completion, respectively, of such
repair or restoration. In such event this Lease shall terminate as of the date
of such notice.
(c) Lessee agrees to cooperate with Lessor in connection with
any such restoration and repair, including but not limited to the approval
and/or execution of plans and specifications required.
9.6 TERMINATION--ADVANCE PAYMENTS. Upon termination of this Lease
pursuant to this paragraph 9, an equitable adjustment shall be made concerning
advance rent and any advance payments made by Lessee to Lessor. Lessor shall, in
addition, return to Lessee so much of Lessee's security deposit as has not
theretofore been applied by Lessor.
9.7 WAIVER. Lessor and Lessee waive the provisions of any statute
which relates to termination of leases when leased property is destroyed and
agree that such event shall be governed by the terms of this Lease.

"real property tax" shall include any form of real estate tax or assessment,
general, special, ordinary or extraordinary, and any license fee, commercial
rental tax, improvement bond or bonds, levy or tax (other than inheritance,
personal income or estate taxes) imposed on the Office Building Project or any
portion thereof by any authority having the direct or indirect power to tax,
including any city, county, state or federal government, or any school,
agricultural, sanitary, fire, street, drainage or other improvement district
thereof, as against any legal or equitable interest of Lessor in the Office
Building Project or in any portion thereof as against Lessor's right to rent or
other income therefrom, and as against Lessor's business of leasing the Office
Building Project. The term "real property tax" shall also include any tax, fee,
levy assessment or charge (i) in substitution of, partially or totally, any tax,
fee, levy, assessment or charge hereinabove included within the definition of
"real property tax," or (ii) the nature of which was hereinbefore included
within the definition of "real property tax," or (iii) which is imposed for a
service or right not charged prior to June 1, 1978 or, if previously charged,
has been increased since June 1, 1978, or (iv) which is imposed as a result of a
change in ownership, as defined by applicable local statutes for property tax
purposes, of the Office Building Project or which is added to a tax or charge
hereinbefore included within the definition of real property tax by reason of
such change of ownership, or (v) which is imposed by reason of this transaction,
any modifications or changes hereto, or any transfers hereof.
10.4 JOINT ASSESSMENT. If the improvements or property, the taxes
for which are to be paid separately by Lessee under paragraph 10.2 or 10.5 are
not separately assessed, Lessee's portion of that tax shall be equitably
determined by Lessor from the respective valuations assigned in the assessor's
work sheets or such other information (which may include the cost of
construction) as may be reasonably available.
10.5 PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES.
(a) Lessee shall pay prior to delinquency all taxes assessed
against and levied upon trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other
personal property of Lessee contained in the Premises.
(b) If any of Lessee's said personal property shall be
assessed with Lessor's real property, Lessee shall pay to Lessor the taxes
attributable to Lessee within ten (10) days after receipt of a written statement
setting forth the taxes applicable to Lessee's property.
11.1 SERVICES PROVIDED BY LESSOR. Lessor shall provide heating,
ventilation, air conditioning, and janitorial service as reasonably required,
reasonable amounts of electricity for normal lighting and office machines, water
for reasonable and normal drinking and lavatory use, and replacement light bulbs
and/or fluorescent tubes and ballasts for standard overhead fixtures.
11.2 SERVICES EXCLUSIVE TO LESSEE. Lessee shall pay for all water,
gas, heat, light, power, telephone and other utilities and services specially or
exclusively supplied and/or metered exclusively to the Premises or to Lessee,
together with any taxes thereon. If any such services are not separately metered
to the Premises, Lessee shall pay at Lessor's option, either Lessee's Share or a
reasonable proportion to be determined by Lessor of all charges jointly metered
with other premises in the Building.
11.3 HOURS OF SERVICE. Said services and utilities shall be
provided during generally accepted business days and hours or such other days or
hours as may hereafter be set forth. Utilities and services required at other
times shall be subject to advance request and reimbursement by Lessee to Lessor
of the cost thereof.
11.4 EXCESS USAGE BY LESSEE. Lessee shall not make connection to
the utilities except by or through existing
outlets and shall not install or use machinery or equipment in or about the
Premises that uses excess water, lighting or power, or suffer or permit any act
that causes extra burden upon the utilities or services, including but not
limited to security services, over standard office usage for the Office Building
Project. Lessor shall require Lessee to reimburse Lessor for any excess expenses
or costs that may arise out of a breach of this subparagraph by Lessee. Lessor
may, in its sole discretion, install at Lessee's expense supplemental equipment
and/or separate metering applicable to Lessee's excess usage or loading.
11.5 INTERRUPTIONS. There shall be no abatement of rent and Lessor
shall not be liable in any respect whatsoever for the inadequacy, stoppage,
interruption or discontinuance of any utility or service due to riot, strike,
labor dispute, breakdown, accident, repair or other cause beyond Lessor's
reasonable control or in cooperation with governmental request or directions,
UNLESS LESSEE'S USE OR OCCUPANCY OF THE PREMISES IS SUBSTANTIALLY IMPAIRED
THEREBY FOR A PERIOD OF MORE THAN 30 DAYS, IN WHICH EVENT ALL RENT PAYABLE BY
LESSEE SHALL XXXXX UNTIL SUCH SUBSTANTIAL IMPAIRMENT CEASES.
12. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
12.1 LESSOR'S CONSENT REQUIRED. Lessee shall not voluntarily or by
operation of law assign, transfer, mortgage sublet, or otherwise transfer or
encumber all or any part of Lessee's interest in the Lease or in the Premises,
without Lessor's prior written consent, which Lessor shall not unreasonably
withhold. Lessor shall respond to Lessee's request for consent hereunder in a
timely manner and any attempted assignment, transfer, mortgage, encumbrance or
subletting without such consent shall be void, and shall constitute a material
default and breach of this Lease without the need for notice to Lessee under
paragraph 13.1 "Transfer" within the meaning of this paragraph 12 shall not
include the transfer of the voting stock of Lessee..
12.2 LESSEE AFFILIATE. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph
12.1 hereof, Lessee may assign or sublet the Premises, or any portion thereof,
without Lessor's consent to any corporation which controls, is controlled by or
is under common control with Lessee, or to any corporation resulting from the
merger or consolidation with Lessee, or to any person or entity which acquires
all the assets of Lessee as a going concern of the business that is being
conducted on the Premises, all of which are referred to as "Lessee Affiliate";
provided that before such assignment shall be effective, (a) said assignee shall
assume, in full, the obligations of Lessee under this Lease (unless such
transfer occurs by operation of law) and (b) Lessor shall be given written
notice of such assignment and assumption or transfer. Any such assignment shall
not, in any way, affect or limit the liability of Lessee under the terms of this
Lease even if after such assignment or subletting the terms of this Lease are
materially changed or altered without the consent of Lessee, the consent of whom
shall not be necessary.
12.3 TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
(a) Regardless of Lessor's consent, no assignment or
subletting shall release Lessee of Lessee's obligations hereunder or alter the
primary liability of Lessee to pay the rent and other sums due Lessor hereunder
including Lessee's Share of Operating Expense Increase, and to perform all other
obligations to be performed by Lessee hereunder.
(b) Lessor may accept rent from any person other than Lessee
pending approval or disapproval of such assignment.
(c) Neither a delay in the approval or disapproval of such
assignment or subletting, nor the acceptance of rent, shall constitute a waiver
or estoppel of Lessor's right to exercise its remedies for the breach of any of
the terms or conditions of this paragraph 12 of this Lease.
(d) If Lessee's obligations under this Lease have been
guaranteed by third parties, then an assignment or sublease, and Lessor's
consent thereto, shall not be effective unless said guarantors give their
written consent to such sublease and the terms thereof.
(e) The consent by Lessor to any assignment or subletting
shall not constitute a consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting by
Lessee or to any subsequent or successive assignment or subletting by the
sublessee. However, Lessor may consent to subsequent sublettings and assignments
of the sublease or any amendments or modifications thereto without notifying
Lessee or anyone else liable on the Lease or sublease and without obtaining
their consent and such action shall not relieve such persons from liability
under this Lease or said sublease; however, such persons shall not be
responsible to the extent any such amendment or modification enlarges or
increases the obligations of the Lessee or sublessee under this Lease or such
(f) In the event of any default under this Lease, Lessor may
proceed directly against Lessee, any guarantors or any one else responsible for
the performance of this Lease, including the sublessee, without first exhausting
Lessor's remedies against any other person or entity responsible therefor to
Lessor, or any security held by Lessor or Lessee.
(g) Lessor's written consent to any assignment or subletting
of the Premises by Lessee shall not constitute an acknowledgment that no default
then exists under this Lease of the obligations to be performed by Lessee nor
shall such consent be deemed a waiver of any then existing default, except as
may be otherwise stated by Lessor at the time.
(h) The discovery of the fact that any financial statement
relied upon by Lessor in giving its consent to an assignment or subletting was
materially false shall, at Lessor's election, render Lessor's said consent null
12.4 ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO SUBLETTING.
Regardless of Lessor's consent, the following terms and conditions shall apply
to any subletting by Lessee of all or any part of the Premises and shall be
deemed included in all subleases under this Lease whether or not expressly
(a) Lessee hereby assigns and transfers to Lessor all of
Lessee's interest in all rentals and income arising from any sublease heretofore
or hereafter made by Lessee, and Lessor may collect such rent and income and
toward Lessee's obligations under this Lease; provided, however, that until a
default shall occur in the performance of Lessee's obligations under this Lease,
Lessee may receive, collect and enjoy the rents accruing under such sublease.
Lessor shall not, by reason of this or any other assignment of such sublease to
Lessor nor by reason of the collection of the rents from a sublessee, be deemed
liable to the sublessee for any failure of Lessee to perform and comply with any
of Lessee's obligations to such sublessee under such sublease. Lessee hereby
irrevocably authorizes and directs any such sublessee, upon receipt of a written
notice from Lessor stating that a default exists in the performance of Lessee's
obligations under this Lease, to pay to Lessor the rents due and to become due
under the sublease. Lessee agrees that such sublessee shall have the right to
rely upon any such statement and request from Lessor, and that such sublessee
shall pay such rents to Lessor without any obligation or right to inquire as
whether such default exists and notwithstanding any notice from or claim from
Lessee to the contrary. Lessee shall have no right or claim against said
sublessee or Lessor for any such rents so paid by said sublessee to Lessor.
(b) No sublease requiring Lessor's consent hereunder entered
into by Lessee shall be effective unless and until it has been approved in
writing by Lessor. Any sublessee shall, by reason of entering into a sublease
under this Lease, be deemed, for the benefit of Lessor, to have assumed and
agreed to conform and comply with each and every obligation herein to be
performed by Lessee other than such obligations as are contrary to or
inconsistent with provisions contained in a sublease to which Lessor has
expressly consented in writing.
(c) In the event Lessee shall default in the performance of
its obligations under this Lease, Lessor at its option and without any
obligation to do so, may require any sublessee to attorn to Lessor, in which
event Lessor shall undertake the obligations of Lessee under such sublease from
the time of the exercise of said option to the termination of such sublease;
provided, however, Lessor shall not be liable for any prepaid rents or security
deposit paid by such sublessee to Lessee or for any other prior defaults of
Lessee under such sublease.
(d) No sublessee shall further assign or sublet all or any
part of the Premises without Lessor's prior written consent.
12.5 LESSOR'S EXPENSES. In the event Lessee shall assign or sublet
the Premises or request the consent of Lessor to any assignment or subletting or
if Lessee shall request the consent of Lessor for any act Lessee proposes to do
then Lessee shall pay Lessor's reasonable costs and expenses incurred in
connection therewith, including attorneys, architects, engineers, or other
12.6 CONDITIONS TO CONSENT. In connection with any transfer
requiring Lessor's consent hereunder, Lessor reserves the right to condition any
approval to assign or sublet upon Lessor's determination that (a) the proposed
assignee or sublessee shall conduct a business on the Premises of a quality
substantially equal to that of Lessee and consistent with the general character
of the other occupants of the Office Building Project and not in violation of
any exclusives or rights then held by other Lessees, and (b) the proposed
assignee or sublessee be at least as financially responsible as Lessee was
expected to be at the time of the execution of this Lease or of such assignment
or subletting, whichever is greater, and (c) that Lessee pay to Lessor fifty
percent (50%) of any "bonus" rent or other consideration received by Lessee from
the Sublessee in connection with the Sublease, after Lessee has deducted
therefrom all costs reasonably incurred in the subletting.
13. DEFAULT; REMEDIES.
13.1 DEFAULT. The occurrence of any one or more of the following
events shall constitute a material default of this Lease by Lessee:
(a) The abandonment of the Premises by Lessee.
(b) The breach by Lessee of any of the covenants, conditions
or provisions of paragraphs 7.3(a), (b) or (d) (alterations), 12.1 (assignment
or subletting), 13.1(a) (abandonment), 13.1(e) (insolvency), 13.1(f) j(false
statement), 16(a) (estoppel certificate), 29(b) (subordination), 32 (auctions),
or 39.1 (easements), all of which are hereby deemed to be material, non-curable
defaults without the necessity of any notice by Lessor to Lessee thereof.
(c) The failure by Lessee to make any payment of rent or any
other payment required to be made by Lessee hereunder, as and when due, where
such failure shall continue for a period of three (3) days after written notice
thereof from Lessor to Lessee. In the event that Lessor serves Lessee with a
Notice to Pay Rent or Quit pursuant to applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes
such Notice to Pay Rent or Quit shall also constitute the notice required by
(d) The failure by Lessee to observe or perform any of the
covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease to be observed or performed by
Lessee other than those in subparagraphs (b) and (c) above, where such failure
shall continue for a period of thirty (30) days after written notice thereof
from Lessor to Lessee; provided, however, that if the nature of Lessee's
noncompliance is such that more than thirty (30) days are reasonably required
for its cure, then Lessee shall not be deemed to be in default if Lessee
commenced such cure within said thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently
pursues such cure to completion. To the extent permitted by law, such thirty
(30) day notice shall constitute the sole and exclusive notice required to be
given to Lessee under applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes.
(e) (i) The making by Lessee of any general arrangement or
general assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) Lessee becoming a "debtor"
as defined in 11 U.S.C. Section 101 or any successor statute thereto (unless, in
the case of a petition filed against Lessee, the same is dismissed within sixty
 days); (iii) the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of
substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's
interest in this Lease, where possession is not restored to Lessee within sixty
(60) days; or (iv) the attachment, execution or other judicial seizure of
substantially all of Lessee's assets located at the Premises or of Lessee's
interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within sixty (60)
days. In the event that any provision of this paragraph 13.1(e) is contrary to
any applicable law, such provision shall be of no force or effect.
(f) The discovery by Lessor that any financial statement given
to Lessor by Lessee, or its successor in interest
or by any guarantor of Lessee's obligation hereunder, was materially false.
13.2 REMEDIES. In the event of any material default or breach of
this Lease by Lessee, Lessor may at any time thereafter, with or without notice
or demand and without limiting Lessor in the exercise of any right or remedy
which Lessor may have by reason of such default:
(a) Terminate Lessee's right to possession of the Premises by
any lawful means, in which case this Lease and the term hereof shall terminate
and Lessee shall immediately surrender possession of the Premises to Lessor. In
such event Lessor shall be entitled to recover from Lessee all damages incurred
by Lessor by reason of Lessee's default including, but not limited to, the cost
of recovering possession of the Premises; expenses of reletting, including
necessary renovation and alteration of the Premises, reasonable attorneys' fees,
and any real estate commission actually paid; the worth at the time of award by
the court having jurisdiction thereof of the amount by which the unpaid rent for
the balance of the term after the time of such award exceeds the amount of such
rental loss for the same period that Lessee proves could be reasonably avoided;
that portion of the leasing commission paid by Lessor pursuant to paragraph 15
applicable to the unexpired term of this Lease.
(b) Maintain Lessee's right to possession in which case this
Lease shall continue in effect whether or not Lessee shall have vacated or
abandoned the Premises. In such event Lessor shall be entitled to enforce all of
Lessor's rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover
the rent as it becomes due hereunder.
(c) Pursue any other remedy now or hereafter available to
Lessor under the laws or judicial decisions of the state wherein the Premises
are located. Unpaid installments of rent and other unpaid monetary obligations
of Lessee under the terms of this Lease shall bear interest from the date due at
the maximum rate then allowable by law.
13.3 DEFAULT BY LESSOR. Lessor shall not be in default unless
Lessor fails to perform obligations required of Lessor within a reasonable time,
but in no event later than thirty (30) days after written notice by Lessee to
Lessor and to the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the
Premises whose name and address shall have theretofore been furnished to Lessee
in writing, specifying wherein Lessor has failed to perform such obligation;
provided, however, that if the nature of Lessor's obligation is such that more
than thirty (30) days are required for performance then Lessor shall not be in
default if Lessor commences performance within such 30-day period and thereafter
diligently pursues the same to completion.
13.4 LATE CHARGES. Lessee hereby acknowledges that late payment by
Lessee to Lessor of Base Rent, Lessee's Share of Operating Expense Increase or
other sums due hereunder will cause Lessor to incur costs not contemplated by
this Lease, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain.
Such costs include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges,
and late charges which may be imposed on Lessor by the terms of any mortgage or
trust deed covering the Office Building Project. Accordingly, if any installment
of Base Rent, Operating Expense Increase, or any other sum due from Lessee shall
not be received by Lessor or Lessor's designee within five (5) days after such
amount shall be due then, upon notice to Lessee, Lessee shall pay to Lessor a
late charge equal to six percent (6%) of such overdue amount. The parties hereby
agree that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the
costs Lessor will incur by reason of late payment by Lessee. Acceptance of such
late charge by Lessor shall in no event constitute a waiver of Lessee's default
with respect to such overdue amount, nor prevent Lessor from exercising any of
the other rights and remedies granted hereunder.
14. CONDEMNATION. If the Premises or any portion thereof or the Office
Building Project are taken under the power of eminent domain, or sold under the
threat of the exercise of said power (all of which are herein called
"condemnation"), this Lease shall terminate as to the part so taken as of the
date the condemning authority takes title or possession, whichever first occurs,
provided that if so much of the Premises or the Office Building Project are
taken by such condemnation as would substantially and adversely affect the
operation and profitability of Lessee's business conducted from the Premises,
Lessee shall have the option, to be exercised only in writing within thirty (30)
days after Lessor shall have given Lessee written notice of such taking (or in
the absence of such notice, within thirty (30) days after the condemning
authority shall have taken possession), to terminate this Lease as of the date
the condemning authority takes such possession. If Lessee does not terminate
this Lease in accordance with the foregoing, this Lease shall remain in full
force and effect as to the portion of the Premises remaining, except that the
rent and Lessee's Share of Operating Expense Increase shall be reduced in the
proportion that the floor area of the Premises taken bears to the total floor
area of the Premises. Common Areas taken shall be excluded from the Common Areas
usable by Lessee and no reduction of rent shall occur with respect thereto or by
reason thereof. Lessor shall have the option in its sole discretion to terminate
this Lease as of the taking of possession by the condemning authority, by giving
written notice to Lessee of such election within thirty (30) days after receipt
of notice of a taking by condemnation of any part of the Premises or the Office
Building Project. Any award for the taking of all or any part of the Premises or
the Office Building Project under the power of eminent domain or any payment
made under threat of the exercise of such power shall be the property of Lessor,
whether such award shall be made as compensation for diminution in value of the
leasehold or for the taking of the fee, or as severance damages; provided,
however, that Lessee shall be entitled to any separate award for loss of or
damage to Lessee's trade fixtures, removable personal property and unamortized
Less improvements that have been paid for by Lessee. For that purpose the cost
of such improvements shall be amortized over the original term of this Lease
excluding any options. In the event that this Lease is not terminated by reason
of such condemnation, Lessor shall to the extent of severance damages received
by Lessor in connection with such condemnation, repair any damage to the
Premises caused by such condemnation except to the extent that Lessee has been
reimbursed therefor by the condemning authority. Lessee shall pay any amount in
excess of such severance damages required to complete such repair.
15. BROKER'S FEE.
(a) The brokers involved in this transaction are CORNISH & XXXXX
COMMERCIAL (LESSOR) AND BT COMMERCIAL (LESSEE).
(b) Lessee and Lessor each represent and warrant to the other that
neither has had any dealings with any person, firm, broker or finder (other than
the person(s), if any, whose names are set forth in paragraph 15(a), above) in
with the negotiation of this Lease and/or the consummation of the transaction
contemplated hereby, and no other broker or other person, firm or entity is
entitled to any commission or finder's fee in connection with said transaction
and Lessee and Lessor do each hereby indemnify and hold the other harmless from
and against any costs, expenses, attorneys' fees or liability for compensation
or charges which may be claimed by any such unnamed broker, finder or other
similar party by reason of any dealings or actions of the indemnifying party.
Lessor shall be responsible for all compensation and fees payable to Cornish &
Xxxxx Commercial and BT Commercial, and shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessee
from any such amounts
16. ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE.
(a) Each party (as "responding party") shall at any time upon not less
than ten (10) days' prior written notice from the other party ("requesting
party") execute, acknowledge and deliver to the requesting party a statement in
writing (i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and
effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying
that this Lease, as so modified, is in full force and effect) and the date to
which the rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, (ii) acknowledging
that there are not, to the responding party's knowledge, any uncured defaults on
the part of the requesting party, or specifying such defaults if any are
claimed, and (iii) certifying to such other matters regarding the status of the
Lease as the requesting party may reasonably request. Any such statement may be
conclusively relied upon by any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the
Office Building Project or of the business of Lessee.
(b) At the requesting party's option, the failure to deliver such
statement within such time shall be a material default of this Lease by the
party who is to respond, without any further notice to such party, or it shall
be conclusive upon such party that (i) this Lease is in full force and effect,
without modification except as may be represented by the requesting party, (ii)
there are no uncured defaults in the requesting party's performance, and (iii)
if Lessor is the requesting party, not more than one month's rent has been paid
(c) If Lessor desires to finance refinance, or sell the Office Building
Project, or any part thereof, Lessee hereby agrees to deliver to any lender or
purchaser designated by Lessor such financial statements of Lessee as may be
reasonably required by such lender or purchaser. Such statements shall include
the past three (3) years' financial statements of Lessee. All such financial
statements shall be received by Lessor and such lender or purchaser in
confidence and shall be used only for the purposes herein set forth.
17. LESSOR'S LIABILITY. The term "Lessor" as used herein shall mean only
the owner or owners, at the time in question, of the fee title to the Office
Building Project, and except as expressly provided in paragraph 15, in the event
of any transfer of such title or interest, Lessor herein named (and in case of
any subsequent transfers then the grantor) shall be relieved from and after the
date of such transfer of all liability as respects Lessor's obligations
thereafter to be performed, provided that any funds in the hands of Lessor or
the then grantor at the time of such transfer, in which Lessee has an interest,
shall be delivered to the grantee. The obligations contained in this Lease to be
performed by Lessor shall, subject as aforesaid, be binding on Lessor's
successors and assigns, only during their respective periods of ownership.
18. SEVERABILITY. The invalidity of any provision of this Lease as
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction shall in no way affect the
validity of any other provision hereof.
19. INTEREST ON PAST-DUE OBLIGATIONS. Except as expressly herein provided,
any amount due to Lessor not paid when due shall bear interest at the maximum
rate then allowable by law or judgments from the date due. Payment of such
interest shall not excuse or cure any default by Lessee under this Lease;
provided, however, that interest shall not be payable on late charges incurred

attornment, a subordination, or to make this Lease or any Option granted herein

written demand shall constitute a material default by Lessee hereunder without
further notice to Lessee.

damages or injuries or interference with Lessee's property or business in
32. AUCTIONS. Lessee shall not conduct, nor permit to be conducted, either
voluntarily or involuntarily, any auction upon the Premises or the Common Areas

structure erected in the vicinity of the Building, whether by Lessor third
parties, shall in no way affect this Lease or impose any liability upon Lessor.

asserted shall have the right to make payment "under protest" and such payment
