The Minimum Monthly Rent shall be increased (but never decreased) on the first day of the sixth (6th) Lease Year and on the first day of each fifth (5th) Lease Year thereafter during the Term by a percentage equal to the percentage of increase from the “base period” (as hereinafter defined in this Section) of the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers, San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose Average, Subgroup “All Items”, (1982-84=100) (the “Consumer Price Index”); provided, however, in no event shall the Minimum Monthly Rent be increased by an amount that is less than seven and one-half (7.5%) greater than the Minimum Monthly Rent payable before the adjustment date in question.

In the event that the Consumer Price Index or such successor or substitute index is not published, a reliable governmental or other non-partisan publication evaluating the information theretofore used in determining the Consumer Price Index shall be used by Landlord for the computations herein set forth.

     4.02 Percentage Rent. In addition to the payment of Base Rent, Tenant shall pay to Landlord for each Lease Year during the Term of this Lease, as Percentage Rent a sum equal to the amount by 8% which of the Gross Sales for such Lease Year exceeds the Base Rent which is payable for such Lease Year equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the annual fixed rate for such Lease year by the percentage rate.

Tenant shall concurrently with the delivery of such statement, pay to Landlord any Percentage Rent due for such Lease Year.
          The receipt by Landlord of any statement or any payment of Percentage Rent for any period shall not bind it as to the correctness of the statement or the Payment. Landlord shall within three years after the receipt of any such statement be entitled to an audit of such Gross Sales. Such audit shall be limited to the determination of the Gross Sales as defined in this Lease and shall be conducted during normal business hours at the principal place of business of Tenant. If it is determined as a result of such audit that there has been a deficiency in the payment of Percentage Rent, then such deficiency shall become immediately due any payable with interest at the annual rate of 18% from the date when said payment should have been made until paid. Any information gained from such statements or inspection shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed other than to carry out the purposes hereof. If such audit shall disclose that Tenant has understated the Gross Sales for such Lease Year by more than three (3%) and Landlord is entitled to any additional Annual Percentage Rent, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all of Landlord’s reasonable cost of such audit.
     4.03 Rent Payments. Rent and other sums to be paid by Tenant shall be payable in lawful money of the United States of America. All payments shall be made by Tenant to Landlord without notice or demand.
     4.04 Place for Payment of Rent. The Annual Rent and any other charges required to be paid by Tenant to Landlord shall be sent to Landlord at its principal place of business, or such other address as Landlord may direct in writing.

From and after the Initial Rent Due Date, Tenant shall pay all Impositions assessed, levied or attributable to the Premises and/or the Improvements on the Premises. All Impositions or installments thereof payable with respect to the tax year in which this Lease shall commence, and all Impositions or installments thereof with respect to the tax year in which this Lease shall terminate, shall be pro-rated on a daily basis; provided, however, that assessments or escape assessments assessed as a result of this Lease and/or the construction of Tenant Improvements by Tenant shall not be prorated and shall be paid solely by Tenant; and provided further that assessments attributable to Tenant Improvements made in the final year of the Lease shall be paid solely by Tenant if Tenant demolishes the Tenant Building.

5


 

          B) With respect to Impositions which by law may be paid in installments over a period of time, Landlord shall be deemed to have elected (the “Installment Election”) to pay such Impositions over the longest period of time permitted by law, regardless of whether Landlord has in feet so elected. With respect to each year in which the Installment Election is effective and with respect to the Impositions associated with Tenant’s premises subject to the Installment Election, Tenant’s share of such Imposition(s) for each year shall be the pro rata share of the amount which would be required to be paid to the collecting authority as if Landlord had in fact made the Installment Election.
          C) In the event the Premises are separately assessed by the taxing authority, Tenant shall pay all such real property taxes directly to the taxing authority prior to delinquency. In the event Tenant fails to pay such real property taxes as provided herein, Landlord may, but shall not be required to, pay the same, and any amount so paid by Landlord shall immediately thereafter become due to Landlord from Tenant as Additional Rent with interest thereon at the rate of 18% per annum from the date of Landlord’s payment plus any fine, penalty, interest or cost which is levied by the taxing authority for such late payment.
          D) In the event the Premises are not separately assessed by the taxing authority, Tenant shall pay all such real property taxes to the Landlord prior to delinquency. In the event Tenant fails to pay to Landlord such real property taxes as provided herein, Tenant shall pay Landlord in addition interest thereon at the rate of 18% per annum from the delinquency date until such payment has been made.
     5.02 Proration of Taxes. If the Premises comprise a tax lot or lots with other property owned by Landlord or other parties (“Other Premises”) assessed for real estate tax purposes, together with said Other Premises, immediately after the Commencement Date, Landlord and Tenant shall attempt to cause the appropriate taxing authorities to assess the Premises for real estate tax purposes separately from all Other Premises. During any period in which the Premises are assessed for real estate purposes, together with any Other Premises, Landlord will pay, before the last day on which payment may be made without penalty or interest, all Impositions which shall be levied against the Other Premises.
     5.03 Exceptions from Impositions; Charges in Lieu of Impositions.
          A) Nothing herein contained shall require Tenant to pay any estate, inheritance, succession, capital levy, corporate franchise, gross receipts, transfer, or income tax of Landlord, nor shall any of the same be deemed to be included within the term “Impositions” as defined herein.
          B) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article V, if at any time after the date of this Lease the present method of taxation or assessment shall be changed so that in lieu of, as a substitute for (whether in whole or in part) or as a supplement to (provided such supplemental tax relates to real estate or revenues from real estate and not to other property or business as well) the taxes now levied, assessed or imposed on real estate and buildings and Improvements thereon, a tax shall be imposed, assessed or levied wholly or partly on the Rent, or a tax, assessment, levy or charge, measured or based, in whole or in part, on the Premises or on the rents derived therefrom, shall be imposed on Landlord, then Tenant shall pay taxes so measured or based only to the extent that such taxes would be payable if the Premises were the only property of Landlord subject to such taxes, or the income from operation of the Premises were Landlord’s only income, as the case may be.
     5.04 Contest of Taxes. Tenant at its sole cost and expense may by appropriate legal proceedings conducted in good faith and with due diligence, contest the amount or validity or application, in whole or in part, of any Imposition or lien therefor, or any other lien, encumbrance or charge against the Premises arising from work done or materials provided to or for Tenant. Tenant shall give Landlord reasonable notice of, and information pertaining to, such contest and regular progress reports with respect thereto.
Landlord shall cooperate with any effort pursued by Tenant in accordance with this Section 5.05. Tenant shall indemnify, protect and hold harmless Landlord and the Premises from any lien or liability with respect to any such Imposition or

6


 

contest thereof, including all costs and expenses related thereto. Landlord shall provide Tenant with copies of notice when received by Landlord from the taxing authorities of any assessments or reassessments of the Premises in sufficient time (but in no event later than thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of the same) to enable Tenant to contest the same in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5.05.
     5.05 Utilities. Tenant shall pay before delinquency, directly to the appropriate company or governmental agency, all charges for all utilities, including, but not limited to, water, gas, electricity, sewer, power, telephone, other communication services and refuse disposal consumed on the Premises.
     5.06 Personal Property Taxes. During the term of this Lease, Tenant shall pay before delinquency any and all personal property taxes levied or assessed against any personal property located upon the Premises. If Tenant fails to timely pay such taxes and a lien is filed against the Premises, Landlord may discharge such lien, if Tenant fails to discharge such lien within ten (10) days following Tenant’s receipt of notice from Landlord, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, together with interest at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per annum from the date of expenditure, such additional rent being due and payable within ten (10) days of notice thereof.

               (1) First, Landlord shall be awarded an amount sufficient to remove any improvements not repaired and to return the Property to the level of adjacent streets (“grade level”); and
               (2) Second, any remainder shall be paid to Landlord.

Landlord and Tenant shall each cooperate with the other in order to obtain the largest possible recovery and execute any and all consents and other instruments and take all other actions reasonably necessary or desirable to effectuate the same and cause such proceeds to be paid as hereinbefore provided. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, neither party shall carry any insurance concurrent in coverage and contributing in the event of loss with any insurance required to be furnished by the other hereunder if the effect of separate insurance would be to reduce the protection or the payment to be made under such party’s insurance or under the insurance required to be furnished by the other.
     6.08 Waiver of Right of Recovery. Landlord and Tenant hereby release each other from any and all liability and responsibility to one another and, to the extent legally possible to do so on behalf of their respective insurers and anyone claiming through or under either of them, by way of subrogation or otherwise, hereby waive any liability for any and all loss or damage which is of the type covered by fire and extended coverage insurance described in this Article, irrespective of any negligence on the part of the other party which may have contributed to or caused such loss. Every insurance policy carried by either party with respect to the Premises or Tenant’s Building or land or improvements adjoining the Premises owned or leased by Landlord shall (if it can be so written and does not result in a material additional premium) include provisions denying to the insurer subrogation rights against the other party and any fee or leasehold mortgage to the extent such rights have been waived by the insured prior to the occurrence of damage or loss. If the waiver of subrogation otherwise is not effective, each party covenants that it will obtain for the benefit of the other party an express waiver of any right of subrogation which the insurer of such party may acquire against the other party by virtue of the payment of any such loss covered by such insurance. In the event either party is by law, statute, governmental regulation, economically unfeasible or other factor beyond such party’s reasonable control unable to obtain a waiver of the right of subrogation for the benefit of the other party, then, during any period of time when such waiver is unobtainable, said party shall be deemed not to have released any subrogated claim of its insurance carrier against the other party, and during the same period of time the other party shall be deemed not to have released the party who has been unable to obtain such waiver from any claims they or their insurance carriers may assert which otherwise would have been released pursuant to this Section. In the event that either party is unable to obtain such waiver of the right of subrogation for the benefit of the other party, such party shall, within thirty (30) days of receiving notice of such inability, give the other party written notice of such inability.

ARTICLE XV
DEFAULT
     15.01 Tenant’s Default The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute a default or event of default by Tenant:
          A) Failure to pay Annual Rent or any other monetary amount when due as provided herein, if the failure continues for ten (10) days after first written notice has been given to Tenant by Landlord;
          B) Failure to perform any of Tenant’s non-monetary obligations under this Lease, provided however, Tenant shall have thirty (30) days from receipt of written notice by Landlord to cure each such default. If Tenant cannot reasonably cure such default within said thirty (30) day period, Tenant shall not be in default of this Lease if Tenant commences to cure the breach within the thirty (30) day period and diligently and in good faith continues to cure the breach.
          C) Tenant shall file a petition in voluntary bankruptcy under the bankruptcy code of the United States or any similar Law, State or Federal Law, now or hereafter in effect.
     15.02 Landlord’s Remedies Cumulative. Landlord shall have the following remedies set forth in subsections (A) through (G) below if Tenant commits a default, except as provided in Section 15.03. These remedies are not exclusive and may be exercised concurrently or successively, they are cumulative in addition to any remedies now or later allowed by law or equity:
          A) Bring Suit for Performance. Landlord may bring suit for the collection of the Rent or other amounts for which Tenant is then in default, or for the performance of any other covenant or agreement devolving upon Tenant, all without having to enter into possession or terminate this Lease;
          B) Re-Entry Without Termination. Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1954.4, Landlord may re-enter the Premises, by legal proceedings (or without legal proceedings if the Premises have been abandoned), and take possession thereof, without thereby terminating this Lease, and thereupon Landlord may expel all persons and remove all property therefrom, without becoming liable to prosecution therefor, and relet the Premises or a portion or portions thereof, and receive the rent therefrom, applying the same first to the payment of the reasonable expenses of such

18


 

re-entry and the reasonable cost of such reletting, and then to the payment of the Rent and other amounts for which Tenant is then in default; the balance, if any, to be paid to Tenant, who, whether or not the Premises are relet, shall remain liable for any deficiency. It is agreed that the commencement and prosecution of any action by Landlord in forcible entry and detainer, ejectment, or otherwise, or the appointment of a receiver, or any execution of any decree obtained in any action to recover possession of the Premises, or any re-entry, shall not be construed as an election to terminate this Lease unless Landlord shall, in writing, expressly exercise its election to declare the Lease Term hereunder ended and to terminate this Lease, and unless this Lease be expressly terminated, such re-entry or entry by Landlord, whether had or taken under summary proceedings or otherwise, shall not be deemed to have absolved or discharged Tenant from any of its obligations and liabilities for the remainder of the Lease Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary or other provisions of this Section 15.02(B), Tenant shall have the right to sublet the Premises, assign its interest in the Lease, or both, subject to Landlord’s prior right, during any continuance of Tenant’s default, to relet the Premises or a portion or portions thereof.
          C) Termination of Lease and Lessee’s Right to Possession. No act by Landlord, other than giving Tenant written notice of termination of this Lease, shall in fact terminate the Lease. Upon termination of the Lease, neither Landlord nor Tenant shall have any future rights or obligations under the Lease except that Landlord shall have the right to recover from Tenant the following:
               (1) The worth, at the time of the award, of the unpaid Rent that had been earned at the time of termination of this Lease;
               (2) The worth, at the time of the award, of the amount by which the unpaid Rent that would have been earned after the date of termination of this Lease until the time of award exceeds the amount of the loss of Rent that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided;
               (3) The worth, at the time of the award, of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of the loss of Rent that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; and
               (4) Any other amount, and court costs, necessary to compensate Landlord for all detriment proximately caused by Tenant’s failure to perform his obligations under the Lease or which, in the ordinary course of things, would be likely to result therefrom.
               (5) For any other sums due.
          D) Definitions. As used herein, the following phrases shall be interpreted as follows:
               (1) The worth, at the time of the award,” as used in subsections 15.02(C)(1) and (2) above, is to be computed by allowing interest at the maximum lawful rate. “The worth, at the time of the award,” as referred to in subsection 15.02(C)(3) above, is to be computed by discounting the amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of the award, plus one percent (1%).
               (2) As used herein, the term “time of award” shall mean either the date upon which Tenant pays to Landlord the amount recoverable by Landlord as hereinabove set forth or the date of entry of any determination, order, or judgment of any court or other legally constituted body determining the amount recoverable, whichever first occurs.
          E) Surrender. Promptly after notice of termination, Tenant shall surrender and vacate the Premises and all improvements in broom-clean condition, and Landlord may re-enter and take possession of the Premises and all remaining improvements and eject all parties in possession or eject some and not others, or eject none. Termination under subsection 15.02(C) shall not relieve Tenant from the payment of any sum due to Landlord or from any claim for damages previously accrued or then accruing against Tenant.

19


 

          F) Appointment of Receiver. If Tenant defaults under Section 15.02 Landlord shall have the right to have a receiver appointed to collect rent from any subtenants. Neither the filing of a petition for the appointment of a receiver nor the appointment itself shall constitute an election by Landlord to terminate this Lease.
          G) Landlord’s Right to Cure Tenant’s Default Landlord, at any time after Tenant is in default under Section 15.01 herein, may cure the default at Tenant’s expense. If Landlord, at any time, by reason of Tenant’s default, pays any sum or does any act that requires the payment of any sum, the sum paid by Landlord shall be immediately reimbursed from Tenant to Landlord, together with interest at eighteen percent (18%) per annum computed from the date of such expenditure until the date of reimbursement by Tenant.
     15.03 Landlord’s Default.
          A) The occurrence of the following shall constitute a default by Landlord: Breach of any provision of this Lease if the breach is not cured within thirty (30) days after written notice by Tenant; provided, however, that if the breach cannot reasonably be cured within such thirty (30) day period, Landlord shall not be in default of this Lease if Landlord commences to cure the breach within the thirty (30) day period and diligently and in good faith continues to cure the default.
          B) Tenant, at any time after Landlord is in default under paragraph (A) above, may cure the default at Landlord’s expense. If Tenant at any time, by reason of Landlord’s default, pays any sum or does any act that requires the payment of any sum, the sum paid by Tenant shall be immediately reimbursed by Landlord, together with interest at eighteen percent (18%) per annum determined at the time the expenditure is made by Tenant computed from the date of such expenditure until the date of reimbursement by Landlord. If Landlord fails to make such payment(s) within fifteen (15) days after Tenant’s written demand, Tenant shall be entitled to offset any amount due from Landlord against the next Rent payment due under this Lease.
     15.04 Waiver of Redemption. Tenant hereby expressly waives any and all rights of redemption granted by or under any present or future laws in the event of Tenant being dispossessed or removed from the Premises upon the termination of this Lease because of default by Tenant hereunder.
     15.05 Dispute Resolution. Landlord and Tenant desire by provisions of this Section 15.05 to establish procedures to facilitate the informal and inexpensive resolution of any dispute arising out of this Lease by mutual cooperation and without resort to litigation. To accomplish this objective, Landlord and Tenant agree to follow the procedures set forth below if and when a dispute arises between them under this Lease.
          A) Description of Dispute. The complaining party shall provide by notice a written description of the alleged breach by the other party. This description shall explain the nature of the complaint and the Lease provision(s) on which it is based. The complaining party shall also set forth a proposed solution to the problem including a specific time frame within which the parties must act. The party receiving the letter of complaint must respond in writing within ten (10) days with an explanation, including references to the relevant parts of the Lease and a response to the proposed solution. Within ten (10) days of receipt of this response, the parties must meet and discuss options for resolving the dispute. The complaining party must initiate the scheduling of the resolution meeting.
          B) Mediation. A settlement conference shall be held within thirty (30) days of the unsuccessful resolution meeting or as soon as practical thereafter. The settlement conference shall be held in the County of San Francisco, California.
          C) Arbitration. With respect to disputes which the parties have been unable to resolve informally or by mediation, the parties agree to submit the dispute for final and binding arbitration if the dispute has not otherwise been settled. The parties agree that the arbitration must be initiated within one (1) year after the dale of the written description of the alleged breach and that the failure to initiate arbitration within the one (1) year period constitutes an

20


 

absolute bar to the initiation of any proceedings. An arbitration shall be deemed initiated for the purposes of this section by demand therefor being sent by certified mail to the other party which notice shall contain a description of the dispute, the amount involved and the remedies sought. The parties shall have the right to representation by counsel throughout the arbitration proceedings. All rulings, decisions, and awards of the arbitrators shall be in conformance with California law. The award may be judicially enforced pursuant to §1285 et seq of the California Code of Civil Procedure. Each party shall bear their own costs of legal counsel and the fees for witnesses, unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator as part of the award. The parties may establish the scope of discovery by agreement. If the parties cannot agree, the arbitrator will have discretion to define the limits of discovery and to allow discovery upon a showing of good cause, utilizing the following guidelines:
               (1) The arbitrator shall balance the benefits of discovery against the burdens and expenses to the parties and the goals of arbitration as an alternative to traditional litigation.
               (2) The arbitrator shall have discretion to order pre-hearing exchange of information, including but not limited to, the production of requested documents and exchanges of summaries of testimony of proposed witnesses.
               (3) The deposition of the claimant(s) and respondent(s) and form sets of interrogatories approved by the Judicial Council shall be allowed as a matter of right. There shall be an early and prompt designation and exchange of the names and addresses of expert witnesses who may be called upon to testify at the arbitration hearing. Their depositions, special interrogatories, requests for admission and all other discovery shall be allowed only upon a showing of good cause.
15.06 Attorneys’ Fees. Should any action or proceeding, be commenced between the parties to this Lease concerning said Premises, this Lease, or the rights and duties of either in relation thereto, the party, Landlord, or Tenant, prevailing in such action or proceeding shall be entitled, in addition to such other relief as may be granted in the action or proceeding, to a reasonable sum as and for its attorneys’ fees therein which shall be determined by the arbitrator(s) hearing such action or proceeding.
