     3.2     Review of Title

     Purchaser shall have until 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on the Out Date (as defined below) to review the Title Commitment, Title Documents and Survey (collectively, “Title Evidence”) (the “Title Approval Date”) and render any objections as to matters of title in writing to Seller. Any matters shown in the Title Evidence not timely objected to by Purchaser shall be deemed waived and Purchaser shall be deemed to agree to acquire the Property subject to such exceptions (collectively, “Permitted Exceptions”) hereunder. Except for Required Removal Objections (as defined below), which must be removed by Seller, Seller, in its sole and absolute discretion, may elect to remove or satisfy any such objections, provided that Seller shall have three (3) Business Days from the date of receipt of such objections to identify such objections that Seller so elects to remove or satisfy. Subject to Purchaser’s approval, which may be granted in Purchaser’s sole and absolute discretion, Seller may cause the Title Company to issue a title endorsement or “insure over” any objection (each, a “Seller Endorsement”) and it shall have the same effect as if such objection was removed or satisfied by Seller. If Seller does not elect to remove, insure over or satisfy such objections within such time or thereafter delivers written notice to Purchaser that notwithstanding Seller’s reasonable efforts, such objections may not be cured, then Purchaser may, by written notice to Seller within five (5) days after the expiration of such time or the delivery of such written notice, either (a) terminate this Agreement without any liability on its part, in which case the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, Purchaser shall return all documents, including all Due Diligence Documents (as hereinafter defined in Section 3.6(d)) received from Seller or Seller’s agents, to Seller and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder (except as set forth in Sections 3.5(a) and (e), 3.6(b), 9.1, 11.2 and 11.12 hereof), or (b) proceed to Closing and take title subject to such objections, in which case such non-cured objections shall become Permitted Exceptions hereunder. After the Title Approval Date but prior to the Closing Date, Purchaser shall also have the right to disapprove in writing any additional item not previously set forth in the Title Commitment that Title Company intends to show as an exception to title in the Title Policy. Any such additional item not specifically disapproved in writing delivered within three (3) Business Days following Purchaser’s receipt of written notice of such additional item shall be deemed approved. Seller shall have until Closing to remove or cause Title Company to insure over (subject to Purchaser’s approval, which may be granted in Purchaser’s sole and absolute discretion) any such disapproved item at Seller’s own expense. Seller may elect to (a) extend the Closing until the day after the date upon which Seller is able to remove or cause Title Company to insure over (subject to Purchaser’s approval, which may be granted in Purchaser’s sole and absolute discretion) any such disapproved item (but in no event shall such extension exceed ten (10) Business Days after the Closing Date), or (b) terminate this Agreement, unless Purchaser elects to take title subject to such disapproved item, and, if Seller elects to terminate this Agreement, Purchaser shall return all documents, including all Due Diligence Documents received from Seller or Seller’s agents, to Seller and the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and, thereupon, neither Seller nor Purchaser shall have any further obligation hereunder (except as set forth under Sections 3.5(a) and (e), 3.6(b), 9.1, 11.2 and 11.12 hereof). Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, and notwithstanding any approval or consent given by Purchaser hereunder, Seller shall cause all mortgages and deeds of trust encumbering Seller’s interest in the Real Property, and all mechanic’s liens filed against the Property relating to work performed on the Property and contracted for by Seller (collectively “Required Removal Objections”), to be released and reconveyed from the Real Property, or, with respect to such mechanic’s liens, otherwise bonded, on or prior to the Closing and shall cause the Title Company to insure title to the Real Property as vested in Purchaser without any exception for such matters.

     3.3     Vesting of Title

     At Closing, Seller shall convey all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the Real Property and Improvements to Purchaser by grant deed (as further described in Section 4.2(a)(i) below), subject to the Permitted Exceptions, and shall convey Seller’s interest in the Personal Property to Purchaser by bill of sale (as further described in Section 4.2(a)(ii) below).

     3.4     Title Insurance

     At Closing, the Title Company shall issue to Purchaser an extended ALTA Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance (Form T-1) in the amount of the Purchase Price insuring that title to the Real Property and Improvements is vested in Purchaser subject only to the Permitted Exceptions (the “Title Policy”), provided that, if required by the Title Company, Purchaser shall, at its sole cost and expense, update the Existing Survey and deliver a copy of same, or the Survey, certified to the Title Company in a manner that will allow the Title Company to issue any additional coverage title policy.

     3.5     Inspection Period

     Purchaser shall have until 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on the date that is twenty (20) days after the Effective Date (the “Inspection Period”) to inspect the Property and the Due Diligence Documents, and to perform such other due diligence with respect to the Property as Purchaser reasonably deems necessary, subject to the rights of tenants in possession of the Property. Purchaser may, on or before the expiration of the Inspection Period (the “Out Date”), in its sole discretion, advise Seller and Escrow Holder, in writing, of its election to proceed or not to proceed with the purchase of the Property. If Purchaser, in its sole discretion, decides that it will not proceed with the purchase of the Property, Purchaser shall on or before the Out Date give notice to Seller and Escrow Holder that it is terminating this Agreement. If Purchaser fails to notify Seller and Escrow Holder of its decision on or before the Out Date, Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected not to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 3.5. Upon any termination, in the absence of a default by Purchaser, the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, all documents, including all Due Diligence Documents, received from Seller or Seller’s agents, shall be returned by Purchaser to Seller, Purchaser shall, at Seller’s request, at no cost to Seller, without representation or warranty, deliver to Seller true and correct copies of all third party reports obtained by Purchaser with respect to the Property, and, subject to Sections 3.5(a) and (e), 3.6(b), 9.1, 11.2 and 11.12 hereof, neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder. In the event Purchaser notifies or is deemed to have notified Seller of its election to proceed with the purchase, then this Agreement will not be terminated, the Deposit shall become non-refundable (subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement) and Seller and Purchaser shall proceed to Closing in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof and the Inspection Period termination rights shall be deemed waived by Purchaser. Purchaser shall not undertake any soil borings, ground water testing or other “Phase II” investigative procedures without first having obtained the prior written consent of Seller, not to be unreasonably withheld. In connection with Purchaser’s inspection of the Property, Purchaser agrees that:

     (a)      All inspection fees, engineering fees, or other expenses of any kind incurred by Purchaser relating to the inspection of the Property will be at Purchaser’s sole cost and expense;
 
(b) Purchaser will give Seller reasonable advance notice of the dates of all inspections and will schedule all tests and inspections during normal business hours whenever feasible unless otherwise requested by Seller;
 
     (c)      Seller will have the right to have one or more representatives of Seller accompany Purchaser and Purchaser’s representatives, agents or designees while they are on the Property;
         
(d) Any entry by Purchaser, its representatives, agents or designees will not unreasonably interfere with Seller’s use of the Property or with the operations of any tenant;
         
(e) Purchaser will restore any damage caused to the Property by Purchaser’s entry on the Property for inspection purposes at Purchaser’s sole cost and expense if this transaction does not close; and
         
     (f)      In making any inspection hereunder, Purchaser will treat and will cause any representative of Purchaser to treat all information obtained by Purchaser pursuant to the terms of this Agreement as strictly confidential in accordance with Section 11.12 below.

Purchaser shall have the right to further inspect the Property as provided in Section 3.6(b) hereafter (during normal business hours and upon notice to Seller), including for the purpose of confirming that the Property is in the same condition at Closing as existing at the end of the Inspection Period, reasonable wear and tear excepted; provided, however, that such continuing right of inspection shall in no way be deemed to extend or resurrect the Inspection Period or constitute a condition to Closing, subject however, to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Business Day” shall mean a day other than any Saturday, Sunday, or day upon which national banks in Monterey Park, California, or the Escrow Holder, are not open for general banking business.

     The covenants of Purchaser contained in this Section 3.5(a) and (e) shall survive the Closing Date or any earlier termination of this Agreement.

     Purchaser shall have until 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on the Out Date (the “Financing Period”) to obtain a commitment for a loan, to be secured by a first mortgage on the Property, from a lender of Purchaser’s choice, and in an amount not to exceed $1,700,000, and otherwise upon terms and conditions acceptable to Purchaser in its sole discretion (the “Property Loan”), such commitment to be subject, if at all, only to such lender’s receipt on or before the date which is twenty (20) days following the Out Date (the “Appraisal Out Date”) of an appraisal of the Property reasonably acceptable to such lender indicating a fair market value for the Property of not less than $4,5000,000 (the “Appraisal Contingency”). Purchaser shall promptly make application for, and diligently pursue the approval of, the Property Loan. Seller shall reasonably cooperate with Purchaser, and Purchaser’s lender and agents, in connection with the loan application process, including with respect to (i) any due diligence incident to the Property reasonably required by Seller’s lender, all at no cost or expense to Seller, and otherwise subject to the terms and conditions provided for in Section 3.5 and 3.6 above with respect to Seller’s due diligence of the Property, and (ii) securing certain tenant related information. If, having applied for the Property Loan, Purchaser is unable to obtain a written commitment for the Property Loan on or before the Out Date (subject, if at all, only to the Appraisal Contingency), or obtains a written commitment for the Property Loan on terms unacceptable to Purchaser or subject to conditions which Purchaser is unable to satisfy or which are otherwise unacceptable to Purchaser, all as determined by Purchaser in its sole discretion, Purchaser may, on or before the expiration of the Financing Period (the “Loan Approval Date”), in its sole discretion, advise Seller and Escrow Holder, in writing of its inability to secure the Property Loan. If Purchaser fails to notify Seller and Escrow Holder of its inability to obtain the Property Loan on or before the Loan Approval Date, Purchaser shall be deemed to have secured the Property Loan. In the event that (i) Purchaser notifies Seller of its inability to secure the Property Loan on or before the Loan Approval Date, or (ii) if Purchaser secures or is deemed to have secured the Property Loan on or before the Loan Approval Date, but such commitment was subject to the Appraisal Contingency, and Purchaser shall thereafter on or before the Appraisal Out Date deliver written evidence from Purchaser’s lender that the Appraisal Contingency has not been satisfied (with the failure of Purchaser to deliver such written evidence to Seller on or before the Appraisal Out Date deemed to be satisfaction of the Appraisal Contingency) this Agreement shall be deemed terminated pursuant to this Section 3.7. Upon any termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 3.7, in the absence of a default by Purchaser, the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, all documents, including all Due Diligence Documents, received from Seller or Seller’s agents, shall be returned by Purchaser to Seller, Purchaser, at Seller’s request and at no cost to Seller, without representation or warranty, shall deliver to Seller true and correct copies of all third party reports obtained by Purchaser with respect to the Property, and, subject to Sections 3.5(a) and (e), 3.6(b), 9.1, 11.2 and 11.12 hereof, neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder. In the event Seller secures, or is deemed to have secured, the Property Loan, and the Appraisal Contingency, if applicable, is satisfied or deemed satisfied as herein provided, then this Agreement will not be terminated, the Deposit shall become non-refundable (subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement) and Seller and Purchaser shall proceed to Closing in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof, and the Financing Period termination rights shall be deemed waived by Purchaser.

     3.8     Tenant Estoppel Certificates

     At least five (5) Business Days prior to the Closing, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser an estoppel certificate (the “Estoppel Certificate”) duly executed by Kotura, Inc. The Estoppel Certificate shall be in the form required under the terms of Kotura, Inc.’s Lease, as set forth on Exhibit I attached hereto. Seller shall not be deemed to be in default of its obligations under this Agreement as a result of Seller’s failure to deliver the Estoppel Certificate.

     The purchase and sale of the Property (“Closing”) shall occur within the period expiring fifty (50) days after the Effective Date, except that if such day shall not be a Business Day, the Closing shall occur on the next Business Day thereafter (the “Closing Date”); provided, however, that each of Seller and Purchaser shall be entitled to one (1) extension of the Closing Date for a period not to exceed ten (10) days upon prior written notice thereof to the other party. Seller and Purchaser agree that this transaction shall close in escrow through the Title Company, which shall serve as escrow holder hereunder (“Escrow Holder”). In this regard, Seller and Purchaser shall execute Escrow Holder’s standard form general provisions and such other instructions consistent herewith as Escrow Holder may require and are reasonably acceptable to Seller and Purchaser; provided, however, nothing in such general provisions or instructions shall constitute an amendment to or modification of this Agreement and, in the event of any conflict, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail.

     4.4     Reporting Requirements

     The Escrow Holder shall comply with all applicable federal, state and local reporting requirements relating to the closing of the transactions contemplated herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to the extent the transactions contemplated by this Agreement involve a real estate transaction within the purview of Section 6045 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”), Escrow Holder shall have sole responsibility to comply with the requirements of Section 6045 of the Internal Revenue Code (and any similar requirements imposed by state or local law). Escrow Holder shall hold Purchaser, Seller and their respective counsel free and harmless from and against any and all liability, claims, demands, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other litigation expenses, arising or resulting from the failure of Escrow Holder to comply with such reporting requirements.

5. PRORATIONS; CLOSING ITEMS

     5.1     Prorations; Closing Costs

      (a)       The parties shall endeavor to cause the utility and service providers of Seller to open new accounts with Purchaser effective as of the Closing Date. If that cannot be accomplished, the amount due on any gas, electric, water, sewer, or other utility bill, or service contract relating to the Property shall be prorated between Seller and Purchaser as of the Closing Date, to the extent such utilities or service contracts are the obligation of the Seller and not a direct or indirect obligation of a tenant under any of the Leases. Any utility deposits made by Seller shall be and remain the property of Seller.
 
(b) All collected rents and other payments from each tenant under the Leases, including, but not limited to, base rent, additional rent, percentage rent (if any), and expense reimbursements, shall be prorated between Seller and Purchaser as of the Closing Date. The balance remaining from any security deposits or prepaid rent under the Leases held by Seller shall be credited to Purchaser (including the balance of estimated tax, insurance and common area maintenance payments made to Seller by tenants under the Leases net of any payments by Seller thereon). Purchaser agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Seller from and against any loss, cost or expense (including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees and expenses) resulting from any claim for such deposits or prepaid rent actually paid or credited to Purchaser. If any rent or other payments under the Leases are in arrears as of the Closing Date (“Delinquent Rents”), the amount of any such Delinquent Rents which are collected by Purchaser shall be promptly paid by Purchaser to Seller after Closing. Purchaser shall be entitled to deduct from any such payment (i) Purchaser’s reasonable costs of collection incurred with respect to such Delinquent Rents (including attorneys’ fees), (ii) rents due for the month in which such payment is received by Purchaser, and (iii) rents from such tenant attributable to any period after the Closing that are past due on the date of receipt. Purchaser agrees to include in its normal invoicing of tenants an appropriate statement seeking collection of any Delinquent Rents. Seller may make reasonable efforts to collect Delinquent Rents from and after the Closing Date; provided, however, that Seller shall not be entitled to pursue any action for eviction of any tenant from the Property. The provisions of this Section shall survive Closing and shall not be merged therein.

13



      (c) All real estate taxes payable in respect of the Property shall be prorated as of the Closing Date; provided, Seller shall be entitled to recover any reimbursements from the tenants on account of such taxes for the period prior to Closing, and Purchaser shall immediately remit to Seller any such reimbursements received by Purchaser upon receipt thereof. Any real estate taxes due and payable for any periods subsequent to the Closing shall be the obligation of Purchaser and any real estate taxes due and payable for any periods prior to the Closing shall be the obligation of Seller, provided Purchaser shall cooperate with Seller to obtain any reimbursement from any tenant in respect of any such taxes. Seller and Purchaser agree to mutually cooperate with each other in connection with ongoing tax reduction proceedings relating to prior tax years, if any, and any ongoing or future proceedings relating to the year in which the Closing occurs, if any, and any refund resulting therefrom (to the extent not refundable to tenants under the Leases) shall be prorated between Seller and Purchaser based on the Closing Date, after deducting therefrom the reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the parties. The provisions of the immediately preceding two sentences shall survive Closing and shall not be merged therein.
 
(d)       Purchaser shall pay for the cost of recording the Deed (excluding documentary transfer tax); the premium for the Title Policy in excess of the premium for a standard coverage policy; the cost of any endorsements (other than Seller Endorsements) and special or extended coverages of any nature in connection with the Title Policy; any documentary transfer tax with respect to the recordation of the documents relating to Purchaser’s financing; one-half (1/2) of any escrow and closing fees charged by Escrow Holder; any surveys or updates prepared by or at the direction of Purchaser; any taxes payable on the transfer of the Personal Property; and any lender’s title insurance coverage on account of any other loan obtained by Purchaser. Purchaser shall pay for all costs relating to any financing obtained by Purchaser in connection with its purchase of the Property, including any and all costs incurred by Purchaser in performing any tests and investigations. Seller shall pay for the premium for a standard coverage title policy in the amount of the Purchase Price; the cost of the Seller Endorsements (but not the cost of any endorsements or special or extended coverages other than the Seller Endorsements); the documentary transfer tax with respect to the recordation of the Deed; one-half (1/2) of any escrow and closing fees charged by Escrow Holder; any prepayment or reconveyance fee in connection with any payoff or release of any existing deed of trust or mortgage; and the recording fees with respect to documents which Seller elects to place of record in order to cure title objections raised by Purchaser to the extent Seller elects to cure the same, as fully described in Section 3.2. Each party shall pay its own attorneys’ fees.

14


     5.2     Calculation of Prorations

     For purposes of calculating prorations, Seller shall be deemed to be in title to the Property, and therefore entitled to the income therefrom and responsible for the expenses thereof, through the day prior to the Closing Date and Purchaser shall be deemed to be in title to the Property, and therefore entitled to the income therefrom and responsible for the expenses thereof, from and after 12:01 a.m. on the Closing Date. All prorations shall be made on the basis of the actual number of days of the year and month which have elapsed as of the Closing Date. All prorations which cannot be ascertained as of the Closing shall be prorated on the basis of the parties’ reasonable estimate of such amount. Except as otherwise stated above, if necessary, the amount of prorations shall be adjusted in cash after Closing, as and when complete and accurate information becomes available but in any event no later than ninety (90) days after the Closing Date; provided, however, the ninety (90) day period shall be extended for a reasonable time for any real property tax reduction or abatement proceeds, which are to be prorated between Purchaser and Seller pursuant to Section 5.1(c), and for any period of time which may be required for reconciliation of tax, insurance, and common area maintenance expenses for the calendar year in which the Closing Date occurs. Purchaser and Seller each agree to reasonably cooperate with the other with respect to such final proration. This provision shall survive Closing and shall not be merged therein.

15



     (e) Leases; Service Contracts. Seller has delivered to Purchaser a correct and complete copy of each of the Leases and Service Contracts and any amendments thereto (Seller has advised Purchaser that Kotura, Inc. is the only tenant in the building and that there are no Service Contracts).

(i) Service Contracts. All material Service Contracts affecting the Property are accurately set forth on Schedule 3 hereto.

In the event that Purchaser purchases the Property, Seller shall have no obligation to repair any such damage or destruction, nor shall the Purchase Price be adjusted except as provided in 8.1(b) below. “Materially Damaged or Destroyed” shall mean damage or destruction the repair or replacement of which either would not be permitted due to the then effective requirements of any applicable law, ordinance, rule or regulation of any governmental or quasi-governmental agency having jurisdiction, or, as determined by a licensed general contractor having at least five (5) years experience in the construction of commercial office buildings, selected by Seller and reasonably approved by Purchaser, would exceed Seven Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($750,000) as to any casualty of a type against which insurance is maintained (a “Major Insured Casualty”) or would exceed Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($350,000) as to any casualty against which insurance is not maintained (a “Major Uninsured Casualty”). As used herein, repair or replacement means such repair or replacement to the Improvements as may be required to restore the Improvements to a condition having substantially the same design, specifications and equipment of the Improvements immediately prior to the casualty. If, between the Effective Date and the Closing Date, the Property sustains damage which is not within the definition of Materially Damaged or Destroyed , the parties shall proceed to Closing. If between the Effective Date and the Closing Date, the Property is Materially Damaged or Destroyed due to a Major Uninsured Casualty, Seller may elect in writing, within five (5) days after the Casualty Notice Date, to terminate this Agreement. If Seller fails to notify Purchaser of Seller’s election, Seller will be deemed to have elected not to proceed with the sale of all of the Property.

21



      
(b) If Purchaser elects or is required to purchase the Property despite such damage or destruction, Seller shall assign its rights to and Purchaser shall be entitled to receive any insurance proceeds (with any accrued interest thereon) at or after Closing (as the same are available) and Purchaser shall receive a credit toward the Purchase Price (i) for the insurance deductible relative to Seller’s insurance on the Property with respect to an insured casualty, including a Major Insured Casualty, or (ii) for the cost of repair not covered by insurance with respect to an uninsured casualty, including a Major Uninsured Casualty. Seller shall reasonably cooperate with Purchaser to allow Purchaser to collect any available insurance proceeds. Seller agrees to maintain until the Closing the level of insurance coverage in effect on the Property as of the Effective Date.
 
(c)        If, as a result of any casualty, any determination, election or agreement required by the terms of this Section 8.1 is not made by the scheduled Closing Date, the Closing Date shall be extended for an appropriate time, not to exceed twenty (20) days, after such determination, election or agreement.

     8.2     Condemnation

     If prior to Closing all or any part of the Property is subject to a proposed taking by any public authority, Seller shall promptly notify Purchaser in writing of such proposed taking and Purchaser may terminate this Agreement by notice to Seller within fifteen (15) days after written notice thereof. If Purchaser so elects, this Agreement shall terminate in which event the Deposit and all documents and funds deposited by Purchaser shall be immediately returned to Purchaser, all documents deposited by Seller shall be immediately returned to Seller, and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder (except as set forth in Sections 3.5(a) and (e), 3.6(b), 9.1, 11.2 and 11.12). If Purchaser does not so elect to terminate this Agreement, Purchaser shall accept the Property subject to the taking without a reduction in the Purchase Price and shall receive at Closing an assignment of all of Seller’s rights to any condemnation award to the extent that such amount does not exceed the Purchase Price plus any legal fees and expenses actually expended in obtaining such award, with any condemnation award in excess of such amount to be divided equally between Seller and Purchaser. Seller shall reasonably cooperate with Purchaser to allow Purchaser to collect any such award.

9. COMMISSIONS AND EXPENSES; COVENANTS

    9.1     Payment of the Sale Commission

    Purchaser and Seller represent and warrant to each other that no real estate broker or agent has been authorized to act on either parties’ behalf except Grubb & Ellis/BRE and Polacheck Commercial Real Estate Services (“collectively, the Agents”) under separate commission agreements. Seller will pay or cause to be paid to the Agents at Closing, the commissions payable under such commission agreements. Purchaser hereby indemnifies Seller and holds Seller harmless from and against any and all demands or claims which now or hereafter may be asserted against Seller for any brokerage fees, commissions or similar types of compensation which may be claimed by any broker which was engaged or which claims to have been engaged by Purchaser and all expenses and costs in handling or defending any such demand or claim, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Seller hereby indemnifies Purchaser and holds Purchaser harmless from and against any and all demands or claims which now or hereafter may be asserted against Purchaser for any brokerage fees, commissions or similar types of compensation which may be claimed by any broker which was engaged or which claims to have been engaged by Seller and all expenses and costs in handling or defending any such demand or claim, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. This provision shall survive (i) any termination of this Agreement and (ii) the Closing and shall not be merged therein.

    9.2     Leasing Commissions/Tenant Improvements

     (a)        Seller shall pay all leasing commissions or tenant improvement costs payable under Leases executed prior to the Effective Date except for commissions and costs payable by reason of any expansion, extension or renewal of such Leases (but only to the extent such expansions, extensions or renewals are pursuant to option rights expressly set forth in such Leases as of the Effective Date, herein called the “Existing Rights”) occurring on or after the Effective Date, which shall be paid by Seller and Purchaser as hereinafter provided. A summary of the business terms of any amendment, renewal or expansion of an existing Lease (unless such renewal or expansion is pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of any Existing Rights, in which case Seller and Purchaser agree that any such renewal or expansion shall be effective upon the valid exercise by a tenant pursuant to the terms of any such Existing Rights) or of any new Lease which Seller wishes to execute between the Effective Date and the Closing Date will be submitted to Purchaser prior to execution by Seller. Purchaser agrees to notify Seller in writing within five (5) Business Days after its receipt thereof of either its approval or disapproval thereof, including all leasing commissions, tenant improvement and inducement payments to be incurred in connection therewith. If Purchaser informs Seller within such five (5) Business Day period that Purchaser does not approve the amendment, renewal or expansion of the existing Lease or the new Lease (a “New Lease Agreement”), and such notice is given after the Out Date, then Seller shall not enter into the proposed New Lease Agreement. If such notice is given prior to the Out Date, Seller may elect by written notice to the Purchaser prior to the Out Date (i) not to enter into the proposed New Lease Agreement or (ii) to proceed with such New Lease Agreement; provided, however, that in the event that Seller elects to proceed with such New Lease Agreement and the parties shall thereafter proceed to Closing, all leasing commissions, tenant improvement costs, inducement payments, attorneys’ fees or other fees payable incident to the initial tenancy under such New Lease Agreement shall be paid by Seller. In the event Purchaser fails to notify Seller in writing of its approval or disapproval of any New Lease Agreement within the five (5) Business Day period set forth above, Purchaser shall be deemed to have approved such New Lease Agreement. All leasing commissions and tenant improvement costs, inducement payments, attorneys’ fees and other fees paid or expenses incurred with respect to any New Lease Agreement (regarding which Seller has advised Purchaser in the requisite summary of business terms delivered to Purchaser as required above) approved or deemed approved by Purchaser as set forth above in this Section 9.2(a) shall be the obligation of Purchaser and Seller, divided pro rata based upon an allocation determined by the rental income received by Seller relative to such New Lease Agreement prior to Closing and the total rental income projected to be paid during the initial term of such New Lease Agreement.

23



        
(b)        To the extent Seller shall be obligated for any leasing commissions, tenant improvement costs, inducement payments, attorneys’ fees or other fees payable in connection with any Lease or New Lease Agreement pursuant to Section 9.2(a) above for which actual payment thereof has not been made by or on behalf of Seller on or before the Closing, Purchaser shall receive a credit at Closing for all such unpaid commissions, costs, expenses and fees.

      9.3     Lease Expense Reimbursement and Assumption

      At Closing, Purchaser shall (i) reimburse Seller for all leasing commissions, tenant improvement costs, inducement payments, attorneys’ fees and other fees paid or expenses incurred by Seller under any New Lease Agreement made on or after the Effective Date, if any, which has been approved or deemed approved by Purchaser pursuant to Section 9.2, less the pro rata share of all such costs and expenses otherwise payable by Seller pursuant to the last sentence of Section 9.2(a) above and (ii) assume all obligations of the landlord under Leases which either (a) arise after Closing or (b) are continuing covenants of the landlord which apply after Closing, if any.

      9.4     Maintenance of the Property; Property Personnel

      Between Seller’s execution of this Agreement and the Closing, Seller shall continue to operate the Property in a manner consistent with the historical operations of the Property, and shall maintain the Property in its existing condition and repair, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

      9.5     Service Contracts

      Seller shall not, after the date of this Agreement, enter into any service contract affecting the Property or any amendment thereof, which shall be an obligation of Purchaser after Closing, or waive, compromise or settle any rights of Seller under any Service Contract which shall be assumed by Purchaser upon Closing, or agree to, or modify, amend, or terminate any Service Contract which shall be assumed by Purchaser upon Closing, without in each case obtaining Purchaser’s prior written consent thereto. Seller shall terminate at or before Closing those existing Service Contracts that Seller is contractually entitled to terminate without cost and that Purchaser designates to Seller, on or before the Out Date, as not to survive Closing (Seller has advised Purchaser that there are no Service Contracts).

10. NOTICES

      All notices, requests or demands to a party hereunder shall be in writing and shall be effective (i) when received by overnight courier service or facsimile telecommunication (provided that a copy of such notice, request or demand is deposited into the United States mail within one (1) Business Day of the facsimile transmission), or (ii) three (3) days after being deposited into the United States mail (sent certified or registered, return receipt requested), in each case addressed as follows (or to such other address as Purchaser or Seller may designate in writing in accordance with this Section 10):

      11.7     Assignment

      Purchaser shall be entitled, without Seller’s prior consent, to assign some or all of Purchaser’s rights in and to this Agreement to one or more entities affiliated with Purchaser (a “Permitted Assignee”). Seller’s written consent shall be required for any other assignment of Purchaser’s rights to a nominee under this Agreement. Any attempted unpermitted assignment, except with Seller’s prior written consent, shall be ineffective and shall constitute a default under this Agreement. Notwithstanding any assignment hereunder, Purchaser shall remain liable for the obligations of Purchaser under this Agreement. Purchaser represents, warrants and certifies to Seller that Purchaser has not assigned, transferred or encumbered or agreed to assign, transfer or encumber, directly or indirectly, all or any portion of its rights or obligations under this Agreement. Purchaser shall give written notice of any proposed assignment at least five (5) Business Days prior to Closing. If there is an assignment permitted hereunder or if Seller approves such assignment, Seller shall have no obligation to reissue any surveys, or title commitments previously delivered to Purchaser, nor shall Seller be responsible for any costs or expenses of any nature associated with such transfer.

       (a)           Seller and Purchaser hereby covenant and agree that, at all times after the date of execution hereof and prior to the Closing, unless consented to in writing by the other party, no press release or other public disclosure concerning this transaction shall be made, and each party agrees to use best efforts to prevent disclosure of this transaction, other than (i) to directors and officers of the parties, limited partners, members and/or shareholders of Seller, Purchaser or Permitted Assignee, and employees, prospective lenders of Purchaser or Permitted Assignee, attorneys, accountants, agents and affiliates of the parties who are involved in the ordinary course of business with this transaction, all of which shall be instructed to comply with the confidentiality provisions hereof, or (ii) as required by law or in response to lawful process or subpoena or other valid or enforceable order of a court of competent jurisdiction.

In connection therewith, Purchaser hereby expressly understands, acknowledges and agrees (i) that Purchaser will not disclose any of the contents or information contained in or obtained as a result of any reports or studies made in connection with Purchaser’s investigation of the Property, in any form whatsoever (including, but not limited to, any oral information received by Purchaser during the course of Purchaser’s inspection of the Property), to any party prior to the Closing other than (a) the Seller, Seller’s employees, agents or representatives, or Purchaser’s or a Permitted Assignee’s agents, employees, representatives, attorneys, consultants or potential institutional lenders without the prior express written consent of Seller (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld) or (b) as required by law or in response to lawful process or subpoena or other valid and enforceable order of a court of competent jurisdiction; (ii) that in making any disclosure of such information as permitted hereunder, Purchaser will advise said parties of the confidentiality of such information and the potential of damage to Seller as a result of any disclosure of such information by said third party; and (iii) that Seller is relying on Purchaser’s covenant not to disclose any of the contents or information contained in any such reports or investigations to unpermitted third parties prior to Closing (all of which is deemed to be confidential information by the provisions of this Section). In the event this Agreement is terminated, Purchaser agrees to return to Seller all information, studies, or reports Purchaser or Purchaser’s agents have obtained from Seller or Seller’s agents, contractors or representatives with respect to the Property or the condition of the Property. In the event either Purchaser or Purchaser’s agents, employees, representatives, attorneys, consultants or potential institutional lenders cause a breach of Purchaser’s duty of confidentiality hereunder, Purchaser shall be liable to Seller for damages and Seller may pursue all of its remedies afforded it under this Agreement. This provision shall survive (i) any termination of this Agreement and (ii) the Closing and shall not be merged therein.

      This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, and the counterparts taken together shall constitute a single agreement.

      11.16     Limitation on Liability

      Purchaser expressly agrees that the obligations and liabilities of Seller under this Agreement and any document referenced herein shall not constitute personal obligations of the officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, members, representatives, partners, stockholders or other principals and representatives of Seller. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Seller’s liability, if any, arising in connection with this Agreement or with the Property shall, prior to Closing, be limited to the remedies as set forth in Section 7.3 of this Agreement and, post-Closing, shall be limited in accordance with Section 6.1 of this Agreement. The limitations of liability contained in this section shall apply equally and inure to the benefit of Seller’s present and future officers, directors, affiliates, members, representatives, trustees, partners, shareholders, agents and employees, and their respective heirs, successors and assigns.

28


      11.17     Partial Invalidity

      If any term or provision of this Agreement or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement, or the application of such term or provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby, and each such term and provision of this Agreement shall be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.

      11.18     Construction

      Headings at the beginning of each section and subsection are solely for the convenience of Purchaser and Seller and are not a part of this Agreement and shall have no effect upon the construction or interpretation of any part hereof. Whenever required by the context of this Agreement, the singular shall include the plural and the masculine shall include the feminine, and vice versa. This Agreement shall not be construed as if it had been prepared by one of the parties, but rather as if Purchaser and Seller had prepared the same. Unless otherwise indicated, all references to sections and subsections are to this Agreement. All Exhibits referred to in this Agreement are attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference. In the event the stated date for Closing or the date on which Purchaser or Seller is required to take any action under the terms of this Agreement is not a Business Day, the action shall be taken on the next succeeding Business Day thereafter.

12. LIQUIDATED DAMAGES

      IF ESCROW DOES NOT CLOSE DUE TO BREACH OR DEFAULT BY PURCHASER IN ANY OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AFTER THE INSPECTION PERIOD, AND SUCH BREACH OR DEFAULT IS NOT CURED WITHIN FIVE (5) DAYS AFTER DELIVERY OF NOTICE TO PURCHASER, THEN SELLER SHALL BE ENTITLED TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT AND RETAIN THE AMOUNT OF THE DEPOSIT DESCRIBED IN SECTION 2.2 AS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES. SELLER AND PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SELLER’S DAMAGES WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE, AND THAT THE DEPOSIT IS A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF SELLER’S DAMAGES. SELLER AND PURCHASER SPECIFICALLY FURTHER AGREE AFTER NEGOTIATION THAT THIS SECTION 12 IS INTENDED TO AND DOES LIQUIDATE THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGES DUE SELLER, AND SHALL BE SELLER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST PURCHASER, BOTH AT LAW AND IN EQUITY ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO A BREACH OR DEFAULT BY PURCHASER OF ITS OBLIGATION TO CONSUMMATE THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 12 SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED AS A LIMITATION ON THE OBLIGATIONS OF PURCHASER UNDER SECTIONS 3.5(a) and (e), 3.6(b), 9.1, 11.2 and 11.12 HEREOF. THIS PROVISION IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR EACH OF THE PARTIES TO ENTER INTO THIS TRANSACTION.
