The Initial Term shall commence on the date of signing (the "Commencement Date") and end on the 3151 day of December, 2024, unless sooner terminated as herein provided. Tenant agrees that in the event of inability of Landlord to deliver possession of the Premises on the Commencement Date pursuant to possession phases as set out in Section 2.5 of this Lease, Landlord shall not be liable for any damage thereby nor shall this Lease be void or voidable.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Landlord is not able to deliver possession of Suite A, B and C in a completely vacated, broom-clean condition with utilities separately metered, by May 31, 2015, then Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by providing written notice to Landlord on or before June 15, 2015. In the event of such termination, Tenant shall restore the Premises to substantially the condition of the Premises prior to possession. If Tenant fails to timely terminate the Lease as allowed herein, then the above Tenant's right to terminate shall lapse and be of no further force or effect.

 

In the event that an environmental safety assessment of the Premises to be provided certified to tenant in the first thirty (30) days of the Term results in the identification of any Hazardous Materials that adversely affect Tenant's use of the Premises, Tenant has the right to terminate this Lease without penalty, provided that the notice to terminate is given within 15 days after receiving the environmental safety assessment report. In the event of such termination, Tenant shall restore the Premises to substantially the condition of the Premises prior to possession.

 
 

 

Notwithstanding anything contained in this Lease to the contrary, in the event that Tenant determines based upon regulatory consideration for its products that the Building is not fit for its business use, Tenant can terminate this Lease with six (6) months' notice prior to termination, such notice to include Tenant's explanation of the reasons why the Building is not fit for Tenant's business use and payment of six (6) month's Rent at termination.

 

Section 2.2 Option to Extend. Upon the expiration of the Initial Term, if Tenant is not in default, Landlord hereby grants to Tenant the right to extend the term of this Lease for two (2) additional terms of five (5) years each. The Tenant shall exercise this option to extend this Lease by giving written notice to Landlord as provided in this Lease at least one hundred thirty-five (135) days prior to the expiration of the then current term. The Rent payable by Tenant to Landlord during this extension shall be as set forth in Article IV below. If Tenant fails to give written notice of extension to Landlord within the time specified, or if this Lease is terminated, any subsequent options to extend shall expire and be of no force or effect. The exercise of any option to extend shall be ineffective if Tenant is in default on the last day of the prior term. The Initial Term and any extended term may hereinafter be referred to as the "Demised Term".

 

In the event, Tenant is then leasing the Premises, and Tenant is not then in default of this Lease, and Landlord decides to sell the Building, Tenant has the right to purchase Building ("Refusal Option") pursuant to the following procedures:

 

Upon notification in writing by Landlord to Tenant that an acceptable bona fide offer to purchase the Building or an acceptable bona fide letter of intent, ("Offer") has been received, Tenant shall have ten (10) calendar days thereafter in which to notify Landlord in writing of its election to purchase the Building at such purchase price and other terms contained in the Offer ("Tenant's Offer"). If Tenant timely notifies Landlord in writing that it is exercising the Refusal Option, Landlord and Tenant shall execute a Purchase Agreement within five (5) calendar days after Tenant's exercise of the Refusal Option upon the same terms and conditions contained in the Offer or if the Offer did not include a purchase agreement, then within fifteen (15) calendar days. Tenant's Offer is contingent upon receipt of a satisfactory title commitment, survey, Phase I environmental report and appraisal which shall be paid for by Tenant. Tenant shall be deemed to have waived such contingencies unless the transaction is terminated in writing by Tenant within thirty (30) days after Tenant's exercise of the Refusal Option. Tenant shall close the transaction within the time stated in the Offer or if none, within five (5) days after receipt by Tenant of the later of the title commitment, survey, Phase I environmental report or appraisal ("Closing Date"). If Tenant fails to timely execute a Purchase Agreement or fails to close the transaction on or before the Closing Date, then Landlord shall be free to sell the Building. The conveyance documents, closing costs, prorations and other terms of the transaction shall be in strict accordance with the terms of the Offer.

 

Section 2.3 Lease Year and Partial Year Defined. The term "Lease Year" means a period of twelve (12) consecutive calendar months, with the exception of the first Lease Year which commences on the Commencement Date, unless the Commencement date is not the first day of a calendar month in which case the Lease Year shall commence on the first day of the first calendar month following the Commencement Date and end on December 31, 2015. Each succeeding full Lease Year shall commence upon the first of January. Any portion of the Demised Term commencing prior to the first Lease Year, or after the expiration of the last full Lease Year, shall be deemed a "partial lease year".

Tenant shall pay to Landlord for each day Tenant retains possession of all or a part of the Premises after Termination or expiration of this Lease a sum equal to one hundred twenty five percent (125%) ofthe monthly Rent for the last period prior to the date of such termination or expiration divided by thirty (30) days per month. In addition, Tenant shall pay Landlord for all damages sustained by Landlord by reason of such retention. Acceptance by Landlord of rent after termination or expiration shall not constitute a renewal or extension ofthis Lease, this provision shall not constitute a renewal or extension of this Lease, and this provision shall not be deemed to waive Landlord's right of re-entry or any other right under this Lease or at law.

ARTICLE VII
Liens

 

Tenant shall keep the leased Premises and the Building free from any liens created or suffered by Tenant, including but not limited to mechanics' and material-men's liens. In the event any lien is filed against the Premises or the Building by virtue of an act or failure to act on the part of Tenant, Tenant shall immediately cause such lien to be released of record. Tenant's failure to comply with the requirements of this Article VII shall be a default by Tenant under the Lease. Upon any such default, in addition to any right of remedy of Landlord under this lease, or under Indiana law, Landlord shall have the right, but no obligation to pay the amount of such lien, to cause its release, and such amount shall be considered additional Rent to be paid to Landlord by Tenant on demand with interest at twelve percent (12%) per year from date of payment by Landlord of the lien.

ARTICLE VIII Assignment
and Subletting

 

Tenant shall not have the right to assign this Lease or Sublet the Premises in whole or in part without Landlord's prior written consent which consent shall not be unreasonably delayed, conditioned or withheld.

In making such a decision, Landlord may take into account the financial strength, type of business, general reputation, and other reasonable factors pertaining to such proposed replacement tenant. The consent by Landlord to an assignment or subletting shall not be constructed to relieve Tenant from obtaining the consent in writing of Landlord to any further proposed assignment or subletting. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord's consent shall not be required if Tenant sublets all or a portion of the Premises to entities owned or controlled by Cook Group Incorporated. In all events, Tenant shall remain liable under this Lease and shall not be released from liability hereunder.

Section 9.4 Waiver of Subrogation. Landlord and Tenant hereby waive any and all rights of recovery each against the other, or against the officers, employees, agents and representatives of the other, for loss of or damage to each other or their respective property or the property of others under their control to the extent that such loss or damage is insured against under any insurance policy in force at the time of such loss or damage.

This Lease and all rights of Tenant hereunder are subject and subordinate to the rights of the lien or liens of any mortgage or mortgages now or at any time hereafter in force and the interest of Landlord, in the Building, and to all advances made or hereafter to be made upon the security thereof. If requested by the holder of any such mortgage or mortgages, Tenant agrees to execute and deliver to such holder an instrument, in form and substance satisfactory to the holder, specifically subordinating this Lease to the lien of such mortgage or mortgages, and attoming to the rights of such mortgage holder.

 

Landlord shall, prior to May 1, 2015 obtain from any current lender of Landlord a subordination, non disturbance and attornment agreement ("SNDA") in form reasonably acceptable to such lender and Tenant, and providing that as long as Tenant is not in default hereunder, the Tenant's right to possession of the Premises will not be disturbed.

Within ten (10) days following receipt of a request from Landlord, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord, without cost, an estoppel certificate ("Estoppel Certificate") in such form as Landlord may reasonably request certifying (i) that this Lease is in full force and effect and unmodified (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification), (ii) the date to which rent has been paid, (iii) that there are not, to Tenant's knowledge, any uncured defaults (or specifying such defaults if any are claimed), (iv) the amount of any leasing commissions being claimed by Tenant's real estate agent or broker due as a result of this Lease; and (v) any other matters or state of facts reasonably required respecting the Lease or Tenant's occupancy of the Premises. Such estoppel may be relied upon by Landlord and by any purchaser or mortgagee of all or any part of the Building. Tenant's failure to deliver such statement within such period shall be conclusive upon Tenant that this Lease is in full force and effect and unmodified and that there are no uncured defaults in Landlord's performance hereunder.

ARTICLE XII

Remedies upon Default of Tenant

 

Section 12.1 Remedies. If a Default by Tenant occurs, Landlord shall have the rights and remedies hereinafter set forth, which shall be distinct, separate and cumulative and shall not operate to exclude or deprive the Landlord of any other right or remedy allowed it by law:

 

Landlord may (i) elect to terminate the Lease, (ii) immediately re-enter the Premises and remove all persons and property from the Premises without such re-entry being deemed to terminate the Lease, and Landlord may store any property recovered at the cost of and for the account of Tenant, or (iii) perform the covenant of Tenant which is in default (entering on the Premises if necessary) and Landlord's performance of such covenant shall neither subject Landlord to liability for any loss, inconvenience, or damage to Tenant nor be construed as a waiver of Tenant's default or of any other right or remedy respecting such default, and Tenant shall pay the cost thereof plus a fifteen percent (15%) administrative fee. Should Landlord elect to re-enter as herein provided, take possession pursuant to legal proceedings or pursuant to any notice provided for by law, or terminate Tenant's rights under this Lease, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, relet the Premises or any part thereof for such term or terms (which may be for a term extending beyond the Demised Term) and at such rental or rentals and upon such other terms and conditions as Landlord in the exercise of Landlord's sole discretion may deem advisable, with the right to make alterations and repairs to the Premises. Such re-entry, repossession or reletting shall not constitute an acceptance by Landlord of a surrender of the Premises by Tenant. Upon each such reletting (a) Tenant immediately shall be liable for payment to Landlord, of any indebtedness of Tenant other than rental due hereunder, the cost and expense of such reletting (including but not limited to leasing commissions payable to Landlord, or its affiliates, or to independent brokers) and of such alterations and repairs incurred by Landlord, and the amount, if any, by which the rental reserved in this Lease for the period of such reletting (up to but not beyond the Demised Term) discounted to the present value at the prime rate of interest exceeds the amount agreed to be paid as rental for the Premises for such period of such reletting; or (b) at the option of Landlord, rentals received by Landlord from such reletting shall be applied first, to the payment of any indebtedness of Tenant other than rental due hereunder; second, to the payment of any cost and expense of such reletting and of such alterations and repairs; third, to the payment of rental due and unpaid hereunder; and the residual amount, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future rental as the same may become due and payable hereunder. Notwithstanding any reletting without termination, Landlord may at any time thereafter elect to terminate this Lease for Tenant's previous default. Upon termination of this Lease, Landlord's remedies shall survive such termination, and as such, Landlord shall nevertheless be entitled to recover from Tenant all damages Landlord may incur by reason of Tenant's default, including the cost of recovering the Premises, and including the rental reserved and charged in this Lease for the remainder of the Demised Term , all of which amounts shall be immediately due and payable with attorneys' fees from Tenant to Landlord. In addition to any other remedy Landlord may have, Landlord may recover from Tenant all damages Landlord may incur by reason of Tenant's default, including the cost of recovering the Premises, and including the rental reserved and charged in this Lease for the remainder of the Demised Term, all of which amounts shall be immediately due and payable with attorneys' fees from Tenant to Landlord. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 12.1 to the contrary, Landlord shall be obligated to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages resulting from Tenant's default.

 

Section 12.2 Property. All property removed from the Premises by Landlord pursuant to any provision of this Lease or of law may be removed or stored by the Landlord at the cost and expense of the Tenant, and the Landlord shall in no event be responsible for the value, preservation or safekeeping of the property. Tenant shall pay Landlord for all expenses incurred by Landlord in such removal and storage charges against such property so long as the same shall be in Landlord's possession or under Landlord's control. All property not removed from the Premises or retaken from storage by Tenant within thirty (30) days after the end of the Term, however terminated, shall be conclusively deemed to have been conveyed by Tenant to Landlord as by bill of sale without further payment or credit by Landlord to Tenant.

 

Section 12.3 Expenses.

The subsequent acceptance of rent or other performance hereunder by Landlord shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding breach by Tenant of any term, covenant, or condition of this Lease, regardless of Landlord's knowledge of such preceding breach at the time of acceptance of such rent or other performance, unless Landlord shall specifically so state in writing.
