Section 2. Rent.
2.1 Base Rent.
(A) Amount. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, without demand, in accordance with the terms hereof, the annual rentals set out on Exhibit C attached hereto (the “Base Rent”). Such Base Rent shall be paid in equal monthly installments on or before the first day of each month, in advance, commencing upon the Rent Commencement Date subject to the Free Rent Period (defined in Exhibit C), and continuing through the last calendar month which falls within the Lease Term and provided that the Base Rent for the first (1st) month of this Lease shall be payable by Tenant to Landlord (together with the Security Deposit (defined in Section 25 below)) upon execution of this Lease by Tenant. In the event the Rent Commencement Date is not the first day of a calendar month, then the Base Rent due for such first month of the Lease Term shall be prorated based upon the number of days in that month in which the Rent Commencement Date falls. Landlord and Tenant shall execute and deliver a commencement certificate (the “Commencement Certificate”) in the form of Exhibit D attached hereto confirming the Rent Commencement Date and the Expiration Date.
(B) Manner of Payments. The payment of Base Rent, Additional Rent and the payment of any other sums due from Tenant to Landlord under this Lease (herein, Base Rent, Additional Rent and all such other sums due from Tenant to Landlord under this Lease are collectively referred to as “Rent”) shall be made in lawful money of the United States of America and made payable to Landlord or such other person and at such place as Landlord shall designate in writing from time to time. Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent is independent of any obligation of Landlord hereunder and shall be paid without abatement, reduction, demand or set-off, except as otherwise specifically provided herein. Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent (whenever arising or accruing) shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease on account of a Tenant default, but if the termination is as a result of a termination right specifically granted to Tenant hereunder, the obligation to pay Rent shall survive such termination but only as to the Rent accruing prior to the effective date of such termination. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, the first monthly installment of Rent shall be payable by Tenant upon the date it signs this Lease.
2.2 Late Payments. Any amount not paid by Tenant within seven (7) days of when due shall bear interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum (the “Interest Rate”) from the due date until paid in full. Tenant acknowledges that the late payment of any Rent will cause Landlord to incur costs which would be costly or inconvenient to establish. Tenant and Landlord agree that it would be impossible or extremely difficult to fix Landlord’s actual damages if any Rent is not paid when due, and such interest at the Interest Rate represents a reasonable sum considering all of the circumstances, and represent a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs that Landlord will incur by reason of late payment. Acceptance of such interest at the Interest Rate shall not limit Landlord’s right to exercise any of its rights or remedies under this Lease or otherwise available at law or in equity, and such interest at the Interest Rate shall be in addition to all of Landlord’s other rights and remedies hereunder or at law or in equity.
2.3 Additional Rent.
(A) Amount; Triple Net Lease. The Base Rent to be paid by Tenant to Landlord is intended to be absolutely triple net. As such and beginning on the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord at the same time as it is required to make payment of Base Rent, an amount (the “Additional Rent”) equal to Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of Taxes and of Sector Expenses for each Sector (as such terms are defined in schedule 1.1) attributable to the Premises during the Lease Term. In all events, Tenant shall be responsible for and shall pay before delinquent all municipal, county, state and federal
taxes assessed during the Lease Term against any leasehold interest of Tenant or any property owned by Tenant and located in the Premises.
(B) Payment. The Additional Rent shall be paid as follows:
(1) For each calendar year (and prior to the Rent Commencement Date with respect to the partial calendar year prior to the first calendar year of the Lease Term), Landlord may notify Tenant as to monthly installments on account of Additional Rent payable by Tenant based on Landlord’s reasonable estimate of each of Taxes and Expenses for such calendar year. If Landlord fails to notify Tenant of the amount of any monthly installments for a calendar year, Tenant shall pay monthly installments on account of Additional Rent at the rate last paid by Tenant until Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s written notice. The amount of such installments may be adjusted by Landlord upon written notice to Tenant. On the first day of the calendar month after Landlord’s notice of any such adjustment, Tenant shall, if such adjustment increases the amount of Additional Rent owed to Landlord (in addition to the revised monthly estimate), make a lump sum payment to Landlord in an amount sufficient to bring total payments to date on account of Additional Rent current, so that such total payments for the then current calendar year will equal Landlord’s revised estimate of Tenant’s Additional Rent. If Landlord’s notice of adjustment decreases the amount of Additional Rent owed to Landlord, Landlord shall pay to Tenant within thirty (30) days of such notice an amount sufficient to reimburse Tenant for any Additional Rent paid by Tenant in excess of Landlord’s revised estimate of Tenant’s Additional Rent.
(2) If the last Lease Year is not a full twelve-month period, Additional Rent for such Lease Year shall be prorated based upon the number of days falling in the Lease Term.
(3) Within five (5) months after the expiration of each calendar year, Landlord shall determine the actual Taxes and Expenses for the prior Lease Year, and shall notify Tenant as to the amount thereof and the Additional Rent resulting therefrom (an “Annual Additional Rent Notice”) and an itemized breakdown of each of Taxes and Expenses. If the Additional Rent actually due exceeds total estimated payments made by Tenant on account of Additional Rent for such calendar year, then Tenant shall pay Landlord the full amount of any such deficiency within thirty (30) days after receiving the Annual Additional Rent Notice. If the Additional Rent actually due is less than the total estimated payments made by Tenant on account of Additional Rent for such calendar year, then Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days of delivery of the Annual Additional Rent Notice, reimburse to Tenant an amount equal to the amount of any excess.
(4) Any delay or failure by Landlord in delivering any estimate or actual statement pursuant to this Section 2.3 shall not constitute a waiver of its right to receive Tenant's payment of Taxes and Expenses, nor shall it relieve Tenant of its obligations to pay Taxes and Expenses pursuant to this Section 2.3.
(C) Right to Audit. So long as Tenant has paid in full any amount owing under an Annual Additional Rent Notice, Tenant may, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, at any time after at least five (5) days notice to Landlord given within thirty (30) days after Tenant receives such Annual Additional Rent Notice from Landlord, review Landlord’s records of each of Taxes and Expenses for the time period covered by such Annual Additional Rent Notice, to the extent such records are reasonably necessary for Tenant to conduct its audit. If any records are maintained at a location other than the management office for the Building or the Premises, Tenant may either inspect the records at such other location or pay for the reasonable cost of copying and shipping the records. Any such review and correction requested by Tenant must be completed and requested within ninety (90) days of Tenant’s receipt of the Annual Additional Rent Notice in question or Tenant’s right to object shall be deemed waived. The records obtained by Tenant shall be treated as confidential. If Tenant’s review of
Landlord’s books and records discloses that Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of Taxes and/or Expenses paid by Tenant for the period under review exceeded the actual amount properly allocable to Tenant (an “Overpayment”), then, so long as Landlord agrees with such determination by Tenant, Landlord shall promptly pay to Tenant an amount equal to the Overpayment. In no event shall Tenant use an auditor who is compensated in any manner on a contingency or similar fee basis.
If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree on the amount of the excess paid by Tenant within thirty (30) days after the ninety (90) day period referred to above, then Tenant shall have the right, within five (5) days after the expiration of such extended period to submit such dispute for resolution by binding arbitration with a mutually acceptable certified public accountant (a “CPA”) having not less than five (5) years experience with respect to the auditing and review of operating expense statements office buildings in the Denver Metropolitan Area. If Landlord and Tenant cannot agree on a CPA within fifteen (15) days of Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s election to submit such dispute to arbitration, then within five (5) days thereafter, each shall select a CPA and within ten (10) days thereafter, the two appointed CPAs shall select a third CPA and the third CPA shall be the arbitrator to resolve such dispute.
2.4 Refunds; Adjustments.
(A) Refunds. If Landlord secures and receives a refund of any Taxes for which Tenant has paid Tenant’s Pro Rata Share, then Landlord shall pay to Tenant, Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of the amount of refund less all reasonable costs and expenses of securing the refund (including reasonable attorneys’ fees).
(B) Adjustments. If the average occupancy level was less than ninety-five percent (95%) of the total RSF of the Project during a calendar year, the actual Expenses for that calendar year shall be adjusted to equal Landlord's reasonable estimate of Expenses had ninety-five percent (95%) of the total RSF of the Project been occupied.
Section 3. Condition of Premises; Alterations.

Landlord shall have no obligation to make or pay for any improvements or renovations in or to the Premises or to otherwise prepare the Premises for Tenant’s occupancy. Upon delivery of possession of the Premises to Tenant, Landlord and Tenant shall execute the Commencement Certificate which, besides confirming the Rent Commencement Date and Expiration Date, will contain acknowledgments that Tenant has accepted the Premises and its condition, and that the Premises and the Building are satisfactory in all respects. Tenant shall be deemed to have accepted the Premises and it’s as-is condition as of the Rent Commencement Date, even though the Commencement Certificate may not have been executed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord represents and warrants that to its knowledge, as of the Commencement Date, (i) the Building’s systems (including, without limitation the electrical and mechanical systems) are in good working order, (ii) Landlord has not received any notices of violations of law from any controlling governmental entity which remain uncured and (iii) Landlord has not received any notices of violations of the ADA that remain uncured.

Tenant shall be solely responsible (as between Landlord and Tenant) for coordinating its work with the General Contractor. Any delay in the substantial completion of the Tenant Improvement work which results from Tenant’s (or its contractors’ or agents’) presence on the Premises or in the Building or resulting from the construction or installation by Tenant of any improvements, or fixturing or cableing prior to the Commencement Date, shall constitute a Tenant delay.
3.2 Alterations or Improvements.
(A) Permitted Alterations. Any and all improvements or alterations in, or additions, changes or installations to the Premises (an “Alteration”) performed by or on behalf of Tenant shall be governed by the terms of Sections 3.2(A), (B) and (C). This 3.2(A) does not apply to the Work subject to Exhibit E which shall be governed by provisions of Exhibit E. Tenant shall not permit or cause any Alteration to be performed within or to the Premises without first obtaining Landlord’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed so long as: (1) no Event of Default exists hereunder, (2) such Alterations (i) do not impact the structural components of the Premises or any improvements located at the Project, including but not limited to the foundation, bearing walls, structural steel, footings, roofs or any other exterior component or portion of the Building or (ii) do not impact the air conditioning, ventilation, electrical, plumbing, utility or mechanical systems of any improvements located at the Building, or (iii) do not impact any other tenant’s premises and are not visible from the outside of the Premises, (3) such Alterations are consistent with the quality and materials utilized in the initial build out of the Tenant space; (4) the cost of any such Alterations does not exceed $25,000 in any one instance or more than $50,000 in the aggregate in any consecutive twelve (12) month period; and (5) such Alterations are in full compliance with the Rules and Regulations and with the Governmental Regulations. Any Alteration not complying with the foregoing sentence shall not be performed without Landlord’s prior written consent, which may be withheld in Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion unless such Alteration is required by Section 1.4(C) of this Lease (in which event Landlord shall not withhold, condition or delay its consent unreasonably). Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord a fee equal to its actual “out of pocket” third party costs of its review of plans and specifications, inspection of work, and other activities regarding Alterations within twenty (20) business days after Tenant's receipt of invoices either from Landlord or such consultants. Tenant acknowledges that in no event shall Landlord’s approval of any Alterations or plans and specifications therefor be deemed to be Landlord’s warranty to Tenant that said Alterations or plans and specifications therefor are in compliance with the Governmental Regulations or are suitable for Tenant’s use of the Premises. Tenant shall pay the entire cost of any Alteration permitted hereunder and, if requested by Landlord, shall provide Landlord with evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of Tenant’s financial ability to pay the cost
of such Alteration. Upon completion of any Alteration, Tenant shall promptly furnish Landlord with final sworn owner’s and contractors’ statements and full and final waivers and releases of lien covering all labor and materials included in such Alteration.
(B) Procedures. Prior to commencing any work in connection with the Alteration, Tenant shall submit to Landlord for Landlord’s review and approval the following (and Tenant's request for Landlord's consent shall not be complete until all of the following has been submitted to Landlord): (a) detailed plans and specifications for all of the proposed Alterations; (b) names and addresses of each of the contractors and subcontractors; (c) copies of all contracts, subcontracts and necessary permits; (d) evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord that such contractors and subcontractors possess the insurance coverage required pursuant to Section 4 below, including certificates of insurance, in form and amount reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, from all contractors and subcontractors who will perform labor or furnish materials, insuring Landlord against any and all liability for any damages, claims, expenses, liabilities and causes of action (including personal injury (including, without limitation, workers’ compensation claims) and property damage) that may arise out of or be in any manner connected with the Alterations (collectively, the “Alterations Claims”). Landlord shall notify Tenant of its approval or disapproval of such plans and specifications and the work described therein within five (5) business days of receipt thereof. If Landlord shall object, Landlord shall state in writing and in reasonable detail the basis for its objection. Tenant may revise its plans and specifications to incorporate such comments and, if Tenant does so, it may again request Landlord’s consent pursuant to the process described above. Neither approval of the plans and specifications nor supervision of any Alteration by Landlord shall constitute a representation or warranty by Landlord as to the accuracy, adequacy, sufficiency or propriety of such plans and specifications or the quality of workmanship or the compliance of any Alteration with Governmental Regulations. Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless from any Alterations Claims (including Alterations Claims arising out of Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s plans and specifications for any Alteration). The foregoing indemnity shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease. To the extent Tenant revises any plans and specifications after obtaining Landlord’s approval thereof, Tenant shall re-submit such plans and specifications to Landlord contemporaneously with such changes and Tenant shall obtain Landlord’s approval to such revision prior to commencing any work with respect to such revision.
(C) Performance. All Alterations shall be performed in a good and workmanlike and first-class lien free manner, using new materials and in accordance with the plans and specifications submitted to and approved by Landlord as well as in accordance with all applicable Governmental Regulations and the Rules and Regulations. In addition, all Alterations shall be performed by contractors and subcontractors who possess the requisite experiences, personnel, financial strength and other resources necessary to perform and complete the proposed Alterations in a good and workmanlike lien free manner. All contractors and subcontractors performing an Alteration shall work in harmony with Landlord’s and other tenants’ contractors and subcontractors. Tenant shall cause all Alterations to be performed in such manner so as not to (i) obstruct access to the premises of any other tenant in the Building or any part of the Common Areas or disrupt any Building service or equipment or any other tenants’ equipment; or (ii) interfere with any work being performed by Landlord, other tenants, or their respective contractors and subcontractors, or (iii) permit or allow any labor dispute or disruption, work stoppage, or picketing anywhere within or outside of the Building arising out of Tenant’s failure to utilize union labor. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, file all plans and specifications for all Alterations, as required by all Governmental Regulations. Prior to commencing any Alteration, Tenant shall have obtained and delivered to Landlord true and complete copies of all permits and other licenses and approvals required by applicable Governmental Regulations to commence and complete any Alteration. If either Landlord, in its sole and absolute discretion, consents to an Alteration which may impact a Building system or may impact the Building’s structure or roof, Tenant shall only perform such work by using those contractors and subcontractors satisfactory to Landlord. All Alterations shall be staged in
areas reasonably acceptable to Landlord. Tenant agrees that Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to inspect Tenant’s construction of the Alterations. Landlord’s inspections of construction shall be done solely for the benefit of Landlord, shall not constitute confirmation or a warranty by Landlord that the Alterations are in accordance with the Governmental Regulations or this Lease, and shall not alter Tenant’s liability and responsibility under this Lease. Landlord shall have the right, at all reasonable times, to post on the Premises and record any notices of non-responsibility which it deems necessary for the protection of Landlord’s interests from any liens or claims in connection with said Alterations. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, within twenty (20) days following installation of each Alteration, (1) accurate, reproducible as-built plans, (2) proof of final inspection and approval by all governmental authorities, (3) complete lien waivers acceptable to Landlord for all costs of the Alteration, and (4) a copy of a recorded notice of completion (to be provided by the Tenant's contractor performing the Alteration, and which will include applicable governmental agency approvals, such as a permit card indicating the city building department’s approval of the work, and a final invoice indicating the completion of the work).
3.3 Removal by Tenant.
Any Alteration or other improvement made by Tenant in or upon the Premises (excepting only Tenant’s furniture, equipment and trade fixtures), whether temporary or permanent in character, shall become Landlord’s property upon its attachment to the Premises and shall remain upon the Premises at the expiration or termination of this Lease without compensation to Tenant unless otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing; provided, however, that Landlord shall have the right, subject to the limitation set forth in the next grammatical sentence, to require Tenant to remove any Alteration and restore the Premises to the condition existing immediately prior to the Alteration, all at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. To the extent specifically requested in writing by Tenant, Landlord shall inform Tenant at the time Landlord consents to any Alteration, Landlord’s determination as to whether Tenant shall be required to remove such Alteration at the expiration or termination of this Lease.
Tenant agrees to keep all of the portions of the Building (including the Real Estate) free and clear of all liens arising out of, or claimed by reason of, any work performed, material furnished or obligations incurred by or at the insistence of Tenant, and to indemnify and save Landlord and its agents and employees harmless from all such liens or claims of lien and all attorneys’ fees or other costs and expenses incurred by reason thereof. Should Tenant within fifteen (15) days after written notice from Landlord fail to: (i) fully discharge any lien or claim of lien, or (ii) bond over such lien by bond satisfactory to Landlord and Landlord’s lender, if any (which bond shall also cover costs of defense), Landlord may, at its option and without limitation of any of its other rights and remedies available at law and in equity and under this Lease, pay the same or any part thereof, and the amount of such payment shall be due and owing to Landlord from Tenant with interest thereon at the Interest Rate from the date incurred until the date paid in full. Such amount shall be deemed to be Rent under this Lease as of the date of such payment by Landlord. No liens of any character whatsoever created or suffered by Tenant shall in any way, or to any extent, attach to or effect the rights of Landlord in the Premises, the Real Estate or the Building.
Tenant's obligations in this Section 3 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease with respect to any claims brought by Landlord within one (1) year of such expiration or termination.

Landlord reserves the right, from time to time, to require additional coverage (including, flood insurance, if the Premises are located in a flood hazard zone), and/or to require higher amounts of coverage commensurate with the requirements of other reasonable and prudent landlords of buildings similar to the Building in the area in which the Building is located. No insurance policy of Tenant shall have a deductible greater than $10,000.00.
4.2 Form of Policy.
The form of all such policies and deductibles thereunder shall be subject to Landlord’s prior approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. All such policies shall be issued by insurers reasonably acceptable to Landlord, licensed to do business in the State of Colorado
and with an A.M. Best rating of not less than A-VIII, and shall contain a waiver of any rights of subrogation thereunder. In addition, except for worker’s compensation insurance, the policies shall name Landlord and any other parties designated by Landlord as additional insureds, provided, however, that with respect to property insurance covering any Alterations, Landlord shall be loss payee thereunder (and the foregoing designations shall be evidenced on the insurance certificates delivered to Landlord as required hereby). The policies shall require at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord of termination or modification and shall be primary and not contributory. Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord all its rights to receive any proceeds of such insurance policies attributable to any Alterations if this Lease is terminated due to damage or destruction. Tenant shall, at least ten (10) days prior to the Rent Commencement Date and within thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of each such policy, deliver to Landlord certified copies of the policies or certificates (in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Landlord), or other equivalent documentation for review by Landlord evidencing the foregoing insurance or renewal thereof, as the case may be. Within a reasonable time after Landlord’s request, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a photocopy of the policies providing such coverage.
4.3 Failure to Carry.
Without limiting Landlord’s remedies set forth in Section 10 hereof, in the event that Tenant shall fail to carry and maintain the insurance coverages set forth in this Section 4, Landlord may, upon ten (10) days prior written notice to Tenant (unless such coverages will lapse within such time period and in which event no such notice shall be necessary) and Tenant’s failure to procure the same and deliver reasonably satisfactory evidence thereof to Landlord within said period, procure such policies of insurance and Tenant shall promptly reimburse Landlord the cost thereof with interest thereon at the Interest Rate from the date incurred until the date paid.
4.4 Landlord’s Insurance.
Landlord shall, during the Lease Term and any extension thereof, maintain a “Special Form” (previously known as “all risk”) hazard insurance policy for one hundred percent (100%) of the full replacement costs of the Building (exclusive of foundations and footings and exclusive of any portion of the Building leased to a party that is obligated, pursuant to its lease, to insure the full replacement cost of such portion of the Building), together with rent insurance in an amount equal to one (1) year’s rent from all tenants of the Building as well as broad form commercial general liability insurance, contractual liability insurance, property damage insurance with respect to the Building, with limits to be set by Landlord from time to time, but in any event not less than $5,000,000.00 combined single limit for personal injury, sickness or death or for damage to or destruction of property for any one occurrence. The cost of all such insurance and such other insurance carried by Landlord with respect to the Building shall be deemed to be an Expense hereunder. Any proceeds of such insurance shall be the sole property of Landlord to use as Landlord determines. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord an amount equal to any increase in Landlord’s insurance premiums resulting from Tenant’s specific use of the Premises or any act or omission of Tenant or the Tenant Parties.
4.5 Priority of Insurance.
Landlord and Tenant, in the exercise of their commercial business judgment, acknowledge that the use of insurance is the best way to protect against the risk of loss to their respective properties and economic interests in the Building and the Premises. Accordingly, Landlord and Tenant agree that in the event of loss or damage to their respective properties or interests, such loss will be satisfied first by the insurance proceeds paid to the party suffering the loss, next by the additional insurance proceeds that would have been paid to the party suffering the loss had the insurance required hereunder been carried by such party, and finally, by the party causing the loss or damage.
4.6 Waiver of Claims and Recovery Rights.
Anything in this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, Tenant, on behalf of itself and its respective heirs, successors, legal representatives, assigns and insurers, hereby waives any and all rights of recovery, claims, actions or causes of action (collectively, “Claims”) against Landlord and its officers, directors, partners, shareholders, agents, employees, guests, licensees or invitees for any property loss or damage that may occur to the Premises or other portion of the Building, or any improvements thereto, or any personal property of such party therein, by reason of fire, the elements, or any other cause which is required to be insured against under the terms of the insurance policies referred to in this Section 4, regardless of cause or origin, including negligence of Landlord or its respective officers, directors, partners, shareholders, agents, employees, guests, licensees or invitees (provided that such waiver does not apply to Claims arising from a Landlord’s gross negligence or willful misconduct). Anything in this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, Landlord and Tenant each, on behalf of themselves and their respective heirs, successors, legal representatives, assigns and insurers, hereby covenants that no insurer under any property insurance maintained by Landlord or Tenant shall hold any right of subrogation against such other party. If the respective insurer of Landlord and Tenant does not permit such a waiver without an appropriate endorsement to such party's insurance policy, then Landlord and Tenant each shall notify its insurer of the waiver set forth herein and to secure from such insurer an appropriate endorsement to its respective insurance policy with respect to such waiver. Nothing in this Section 4.6 shall be construed to impose any other or greater liability upon Landlord than the liability which would have existed in the absence of this Section 4.6.
Section 5. Repairs and Maintenance; Compliance; Services.
5.1 Tenant’s Maintenance Obligations.
Tenant shall maintain the interior of the Premises in a clean, sanitary and safe condition. Such maintenance shall include, without limitation, the obligation to maintain, replace or repair, in the manner required herein, all doors and door frames, door checks, locks and closing devices, security devices, windows, window sashes, casements and frames, floors and floor coverings, shelving, and all equipment, facilities and fixtures exclusively serving the Premises (including hardware, electrical, and plumbing). Tenant shall also repair and replace, at its sole cost and expense, any ventilating and air conditioning facilities (“HVAC”) whether now existing or later installed which serve only the Premises. Tenant shall, at its own expense, install and maintain fire extinguishers and other fire protection devices in the Premises as may be required from time to time by the Governmental Regulations or by any agency having jurisdiction or the insurance underwriters insuring the Building in which the Premises are located. Subject to the terms of Section 1.4(C) above, Tenant shall, at its own cost and expense, ensure that the Premises are maintained in compliance with the ADA and any similar state or local laws, rules or ordinances throughout the Lease Term and any renewals. Required Tenant repairs and maintenance not made within 10 days after demand by Landlord may be made by Landlord, at its option, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of the repairs within 30 days from receipt of invoice.
5.2 Landlord’s Maintenance Obligations.
Landlord shall, as an Expense, subject to the terms of Section 6 below and in a manner consistent with comparable R&D/ office buildings in the Denver Metropolitan Area and consistent with Landlord's obligations under this Lease, maintain, repair and replace, as necessary, (i) the Building shell and other structural portions of the Building (including structural portions of the roof and foundations) (collectively, “Structural Portions of the Building”), (ii) the basic sprinkler and electrical systems within the Building core, (iii) the Common Areas, and (iv) the Building signage, if any (but expressly excluding any signs of the tenants of the Building, including, without limitation, Tenant’s Signs, as defined below).
In addition, as an Expense, Landlord shall perform or cause to be performed routine maintenance of the HVAC system serving the Common Areas and any HVAC systems that jointly serve the Premises and any other areas of the Building (collectively, the “Covered HVAC Repairs”) and shall pay (i) the cost of any repairs or (ii) replacement of the HVAC unit(s) serving the Building, but excluding any HVAC systems that serve only the Premises and also expressly excluding any repairs (major or not) or replacements caused by Tenant’s intentional misconduct, negligence or misuse of the HVAC units or systems. Subject to the terms of Section 1.4(C) above, Landlord shall, as an Expense, ensure that the Property is maintained in compliance with the ADA and any similar state or local laws, rules or ordinances throughout the Lease Term. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease, Landlord shall have no obligation to alter, remodel, improve, repair, renovate, redecorate or paint all or any part of the Building or to provide funds for any of the foregoing.
5.3 Building Services.
(A) Cooling. Air conditioning for the Premises is available to Tenant and supplied by units located on the roof of the Building, which units are sub-metered. If Tenant desires to utilize air conditioning, Tenant shall pay for such separately metered service directly to the applicable electric company.
(B) Janitorial Service. Landlord shall arrange for and furnish, at Landlord’s cost and expense, the cost thereof shall be included in Expenses, janitorial services for the Premises substantially as set forth in Exhibit F. Landlord shall pay directly to the company providing such janitorial services, as and when due, any and all costs of such services. If Tenant desires supplementary janitorial service, it may do so at Tenant’s cost and expense and responsibility.
(C) Water. Landlord shall furnish water for drinking, kitchen and toilet purposes and water for lavatory purposes. To the extent Tenant needs water for any other purposes and such purpose is approved by Landlord, Tenant shall pay, as Additional Rent, the cost for such water at rates fixed by Landlord. Tenant shall not permit or cause water to be wasted.
(D) Electricity. Electricity for outlets and overhead lights used in the Premises shall be supplied for the purposes of lighting and general office equipment use in amounts consistent with Building standard electrical capacities, not to exceed five (5) watts per RSF of the Premises, and the cost thereof shall be included in Expenses. Electricity for the Premises is sub- metered. Tenant shall arrange for electrical services with the applicable electric company and pay directly to such Company, as and when due, any and all costs related to such service. The electricity required for the operation of the Common Areas, elevators, and any other building systems (not separately metered for the Premises) shall be deemed an Expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall pay electricity expenses associated with a house meter which controls, among other things, exterior lighting and FLS for the Building, provided that any and all such costs shall be included in Expenses. If Tenant desires signal, communication, alarm or other utility or similar service connections installed or changed, Tenant shall not install or change the same without the approval of the Landlord, and then only under written direction of Landlord and at Tenant’s sole expense. Tenant shall not install in the Premises any equipment which requires a substantial amount of electrical current or which in any way may increase the amount of any services furnished or supplied by Landlord to the Tenant and/or the other tenants in the Building without the advance written consent of the Landlord (which consent may be withheld, conditioned or delayed in Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion), and the Tenant shall ascertain from the Landlord the maximum amount of load or demand for use of electrical current which can safely be permitted in the Premises, taking into account the capacity of the electric wiring in the Building and the needs of other tenants of the Building, and shall not in any event connect a greater load then such safe capacity. The Tenant shall not tamper with any other Building utility systems without authorization from the Landlord. The running of
cable or pipe between suites also requires Landlord’s prior written authorization and will occur at the Tenant’s expense if approved.
(E) Separate Services. Tenant is responsible to pay for all electrical and gas services to the Premises, unless previously discussed in the Lease. Tenant shall, as part of the Tenant Improvements completed pursuant to the Agreement for Construction attached as Exhibit E, install separate gas and electric sub-meters for the Premises unless existing in place meters are already available to the Premises, in which case Tenant may use those existing gas and electric meters.
5.4 Telephone Service.
Tenant shall arrange for telephone service in the Premises directly with the telephone service provider it selects, subject to Landlord’s approval which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Tenant shall pay directly to such provider, as and when due, all of the costs related to such installation and service.
5.5 Interruption of Services.
No interruption of services caused by repairs, replacements or alterations to the service system, or by any other cause, shall be deemed an eviction or disturbance of Tenant’s possession of any part of the Premises or render Landlord liable to Tenant for damages, or otherwise affect the rights and obligations of Landlord or Tenant under this Lease. However, if (i) Landlord ceases to furnish any service in the Building as a result of a condition which affects only the Building (that is, which does not affect office buildings in general in the vicinity of the Building) and (ii) Tenant notifies Landlord of such cessation in writing within one (1) business day after such cessation begins and (iii) such cessation is not caused by Force Majeure (as defined in Schedule 1.1) and (iv) such cessation has not arisen as a result of an act or omission of Tenant or the Tenant Parties and (v) as a result of such cessation, the Premises (or a material portion thereof) is rendered untenantable and Tenant in fact ceases to use such space in the manner used prior to such cessation, then, as Tenant’s exclusive remedy for such cessation, on the fifth (5th) consecutive day after all of the foregoing conditions have been met, the Base Rent payable hereunder shall be equitably abated based on the percentage of the Premises so rendered untenantable and in fact not used by Tenant. Said Base Rent abatement shall continue until the date the Premises become tenantable again by the removal of such cessation of services.
Section 6. Damage to Building and Premises.
Except as provided in Section 6.2 below, if at any time during the Lease Term, including any extension or renewal thereof, the Building is damaged by fire or other casualty, then, unless this Lease is terminated by Landlord as hereinafter provided, Landlord shall be obligated to promptly commence, and thereafter prosecute with due diligence, the reconstruction, restoration and repair of the Building and the Premises (except for any Alterations made by Tenant or any of Tenant’s personal property, equipment and Trade Fixtures) to a condition substantially equivalent to that existing immediately prior to the casualty. Except as provided in Section 6.2 below, if the damage renders the Premises inaccessible or untenantable in whole or in part, the Rent provided for herein shall abate thereafter as to the portion of the Premises so affected until such time as same is accessible and restored to a tenantable condition, as reasonably determined by Landlord (or until such time as same would have been accessible and restored to a tenantable condition had it not been for delays caused by Tenant or Tenant Parties). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of damage to the Premises or the Building (or any part thereof) caused by Tenant or Tenant Parties, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for such
damage (regardless of whether any insurance proceeds are available to Tenant in connection therewith), and in no event shall Tenant receive any Rent abatement or any other rental or other concessions from Landlord.
If (i) the Building is damaged to an extent that Landlord's good faith estimate of the cost of reconstruction, restoration and repair thereof exceeds fifty percent (50%) of the replacement cost of the Building, (ii) the reconstruction, restoration and repair of the Premises or the Building cannot with reasonable diligence be completed within one hundred eighty (180) days after the casualty, (iii) Landlord’s mortgage lender does not make the applicable insurance proceeds available for reconstruction, (iv) Landlord determines in its sole discretion that insurance proceeds are insufficient to restore the Premises to the condition required by this Lease, or (v) the casualty occurs during the last twelve (12) calendar months of the Lease Term, then in any such event Landlord shall have the right, exercisable by written notice given to Tenant at any time within ninety (90) days after the occurrence of the casualty, to elect not to reconstruct, restore or repair the Premises, and in such event this Lease shall be terminated in all respects effective as of the date of the casualty, all Rent shall be prorated to the date of the casualty, and the parties hereto shall be released from any obligations thereafter accruing under this Lease (except as otherwise provided herein).
6.3 Inability to Complete.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 6, in the event Landlord is obligated or elects to repair, reconstruct and/or restore the damaged portion of the Building or Premises pursuant to Section 6.1 above, but is delayed from completing such repair, reconstruction and/or restoration beyond the date which is six (6) months after the date estimated by Landlord's contractor for completion thereof, by reason of any events or delays beyond Landlord’s reasonable control, such as Force Majeure events or events and delays caused by Tenant or the Tenant Parties, then Landlord may elect to terminate this Lease upon thirty (30) days' prior written notice to Tenant.
Section 7. Eminent Domain.
7.1 Total Taking.
In the event of a taking or damage related to the exercise of the power or eminent domain, by any agency, authority, public utility, person, corporation or entity empowered to condemn property (including without limitation a voluntary conveyance by Landlord in lieu of such taking or condemnation) (a "Taking") of (i) the entire Premises, (ii) so much of the Premises as to prevent or substantially impair its use by Tenant during the Lease Term, or (iii) portions of the Building required for reasonable access to, or reasonable use of, the Premises (a "Total Taking"), the rights of Tenant under this Lease and the leasehold estate of Tenant in and to the Premises shall cease and terminate as of the date upon which title to the property taken passes to and vests in the condemnor or the effective date of any order for possession if issued prior to the date title vests in the condemnor ("Date of Taking").
If this Lease is terminated pursuant to this Section 7.1, Landlord shall refund to Tenant any prepaid unaccrued Rent and any other sums due and owing to Tenant (less any sums then due and owing Landlord by Tenant), and Tenant shall pay to Landlord any remaining sums due and owing Landlord under this Lease, each prorated as of the Date of Taking where applicable.
7.2 Partial Taking.
In the event of a Taking of only a part of the Premises or of a part of the Building which does not constitute a Total Taking during the Lease Term (a "Partial Taking"), the rights of Tenant under this Lease and the leasehold estate of Tenant in and to the portion of the property taken shall cease and terminate as of the Date of Taking, and an adjustment to the Rent shall be made based upon the reduced area of the Premises.
In the event of a Taking of a material portion of the Building (other than the Premises) such that, in Landlord's reasonable opinion, the Building’s continued operation is not practically or economically feasible, Landlord may terminate this Lease by giving notice to Tenant within ninety (90) days after the date notice of such Taking is received by Landlord.
If this Lease is terminated pursuant to this Section 7.2, Landlord shall refund to Tenant any prepaid unaccrued Rent and any other sums due and owing to Tenant (less any sums then due and owing Landlord by Tenant), and Tenant shall pay to Landlord any remaining sums due and owing Landlord under this Lease, each prorated as of the Date of Taking where applicable.
If this Lease is not terminated as provided for in this Section 7.2, Landlord at its expense shall promptly repair and restore the Building and/or the Premises to substantially the same condition that existed immediately prior to the Date of Taking, wear and tear only excepted (and Landlord shall have no obligation to repair or restore Tenant's improvements to the Premises or Tenant's property), except for the part taken, so as to render the Building as complete an architectural unit as practical, but only to the extent of the condemnation award actually received by Landlord for the damage.
Landlord reserves all rights to damages and awards paid because of any Partial or Total Taking of the Premises or the Building. Tenant assigns to Landlord any right Tenant, if any, may have to the damages or award. Further, Tenant shall not make claims against Landlord or the condemning authority for damages. Notwithstanding the above, Tenant may pursue a separate claim against the condemning authority for the value of Tenant's moving expenses, business dislocation damages, Tenant's personal property, equipment and Trade Fixtures and any other award that would not reduce the award payable to Landlord.
Section 8. Assignment and Subletting.
Except as specifically set forth below in this Section 8, Tenant shall not: (a) assign, transfer, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or encumber or subject to or permit to exist upon or be subjected to any lien or charge, this Lease or any interest under it; (b) allow to exist or occur any transfer of or lien upon this Lease or Tenant’s interest herein by operation of law or otherwise or (c) sublet all or any portion of the Premises (individually or collectively, all of such items in clauses (a) through (c), are referred to as a “Transfer”), without the prior written consent of Landlord in each instance, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. Tenant shall provide written notice of a proposed Transfer to Landlord at least 30 days prior to such proposed Transfer setting forth the details of the proposed Transfer. Landlord’s withholding of consent shall be deemed reasonable if (1) the Premises, or any portion of the Premises, will be used (A) for a use other than the Permitted Use permitted under this Lease, (B) in a manner which is not in keeping with the then standards of the Building, (C) in a manner which conflicts with any exclusive use rights granted to any other tenant of the Building, and (D)
in Landlord’s reasonable opinion, in a manner which materially increases parking or occupancy loads; (2) the transferee does not have, in Landlord’s sole discretion, reasonable financial worth in light of the responsibilities involved; (3) Tenant is in default at the time it makes its request; (4) the transferee is a tenant or currently negotiating a lease with Landlord in the Building; and (5) the rent to be paid by the transferee is not less than the Rent paid by Tenant for such space and is not less than 85% of the rental rate then being offered by Landlord for similar space in the Building.
8.2 Assignment and Subletting.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 8.1 above, provided no Event of Default then exists hereunder, Tenant shall have the right to assign its interest in this Lease or sublet all or a portion of the Premises without obtaining Landlord’s consent or approval if (i) such assignment is done in connection with a merger, reorganization, consolidation or other similar transaction involving substantially all of the assets of Tenant where the net worth of the surviving entity assuming this lease is equal to or greater than the net worth of Tenant as of the date hereof, or (ii) such assignment or sublease is to anyone that is and remains an Affiliate (defined below) throughout the Lease Term (a “Permitted Transfer”). Although Landlord’s consent to the foregoing is not required, such assignment or sublease shall not be permitted unless (i) Tenant provides Landlord with written notice of such event, together with (a) true and complete copies of the documents evidencing such assignment or sublease (including the assignment and sublease documents), and (b) reasonable financial information certified by an independent public accountant showing that the financial condition of the transferee is the same or better than the financial condition of Tenant at the time of the Assignment and the Effective Date, not less than ten (10) days prior to the effectiveness of such assignment or sublease and (ii) such assignment or sublease complies in advance with all of the terms and conditions required by this Agreement for a permitted assignment or sublease. For purposes hereof, an “Affiliate” of any entity shall mean any other entity, directly or indirectly, controlling or controlled by or under direct or indirect common control with such specified person or entity and “control” shall mean the direct or indirect power to direct the management and policies of such person or entity, whether through the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise.
8.3 Tenant to Remain Obligated.
Unless Landlord expressly agrees in writing to the contrary, any Transfer shall not operate to relieve Tenant from any covenant, liability or obligation hereunder (whether past, present or future), including, without limitation, the obligation to pay Rent. Landlord’s consent to a Transfer shall not be deemed to be a consent to any subsequent Transfer. Tenant shall remain liable under this Lease as a principal and not as a surety.
8.4 Assignee to Assume Obligations.
If Tenant shall assign this Lease as permitted herein, the assignee shall expressly assume all of the obligations of Tenant hereunder from and after the date of assignment and agree to comply with and be bound by all of the terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease. Such assumption shall be evidenced in a written instrument satisfactory to Landlord, the execution form of which shall be furnished to Landlord not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the effective date of the assignment. If Tenant shall sublease the Premises as permitted herein, Tenant shall obtain and furnish to Landlord, not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the effective date of such sublease and in form satisfactory to Landlord, the written agreement of such subtenant that it shall comply with and be bound by all of the terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease and that it will attorn to Landlord, at Landlord’s option and written request, in the event this Lease terminates before the expiration of the sublease.
8.5 Change of Control.
Any transfer (including, without limitation, any dissolution, merger, consolidation or other reorganization of Tenant (but excluding the transfer or exchange of any publicly traded stock ) or any issuance, sale, gift, transfer or redemption, of any capital stock of Tenant or other interest in Tenant (whether voluntary, involuntary or by operation of law), or any combination of the foregoing affecting the direct or indirect power to affect the management or policies of Tenant or any direct or indirect change in fifty percent (50%) or more of the ownership interest in Tenant shall constitute a Transfer subject to the provisions of this Section 8.
8.6 Event of Default.
Any Transfer without Landlord’s prior written consent shall be of no effect and shall, at the option of Landlord, constitute an Event of Default under this Lease without any further notice or cure period.
8.7 Transfer Premium.
Unless Landlord expressly agrees to the contrary, Landlord shall be entitled to receive from Tenant (as and when received by Tenant) as additional item of Rent, fifty percent (50%) of all amounts received by Tenant from such assignee or subtenant in excess of the amounts payment by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease (the "Transfer Premium") which shall include all Rent or other consideration of any type whatsoever payable by Tenant under this Lease, minus any reasonable market leasing commissions, paid by Tenant in connection with the assignment or sublease.
8.8 Administrative and Attorneys’ Fees.
If Tenant effects any Transfer or requests the consent of Landlord to any Transfer, then with respect to each separate Transfer submission, Tenant shall, within fifteen (15) days of demand, pay Landlord a non-refundable administrative fee of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) (“Administrative Fee”), plus any reasonable attorneys' and paralegal fees and costs incurred by Landlord in connection with such Transfer or request for consent (whether attributable to Landlord's in-house attorneys or paralegals or otherwise). Acceptance of the Administrative Fee and/or reimbursement of Landlord's attorneys' and paralegal fees shall in no event obligate Landlord to consent to any proposed Transfer.
Section 9. Signage.
Tenant shall not place any sign upon the exterior of the Premises or any other part of the Building, except that Tenant may, with Landlord’s prior written consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), install (but not on the roof of the Building) such signs as are reasonably required to advertise Tenant’s own business, so long as such signs are in a location designated by Landlord (in its sole and absolute discretion) and are in full compliance with the Rules and Regulations (as the same may be amended by Landlord in its sole and absolute discretion) and Governmental Regulations (“Tenant’s Signs”). Any costs and expenses of installation, repair, maintenance, replacement and removal shall be borne exclusively by Tenant. Unless otherwise expressly agreed to by Landlord (in its sole and absolute discretion), Landlord hereby reserves all rights to the use of the roof of the Building, and the right to install advertising signs on the Building, including the roof thereof, which do not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of the Tenant’s business. Landlord shall be entitled to any and all revenues from such advertising signs.
Notwithstanding anything in this Section 9.1 to the contrary, Tenant shall be permitted to maintain a Tenant Sign on the property monument signage in size and location determined by Landlord. In addition, Tenant shall be permitted to install and maintain signage on the Building above the entrance to the Premises. The dimensions of Tenant’s building signage may not exceed six feet by two feet (6’ x 2’). The form and design of the signage will be subject to the reasonable prior approval by Landlord after reviewing the proposed sign with Tenant. Tenant shall be solely responsible for all costs associated with installing, maintaining, and removing the signage on the Building and property monument including compliance with all Governmental Regulations.

(C) Abandonment. Tenant abandons all or a material portion of the Premises for a period of ten (10) consecutive days or more without first obtaining the prior written consent of Landlord; or
(D) Bankruptcy. One of the following occurs:
(1) Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease commences any proceeding under any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or relief of debts, or seeks appointment of a receiver, trustee, custodian or other similar official for Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease or for any substantial part of its respective property, or any such proceeding is commenced against Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease and either remains undismissed for a period of sixty (60) days or results in the entry of an order for relief against Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease which is not fully stayed within thirty (30) days after entry; or
(2) Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease becomes insolvent or bankrupt, does not generally pay its respective debts as they become due, or admits in writing its inability to pay its debts, or makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; or
(3) Any third party obtains a levy or attachment under process of law against Tenant’s leasehold interest or other property or assets or any property or assets of any guarantor; or
(E) Estoppel Certificate. Tenant’s failure to deliver to Landlord an executed estoppel certificate pursuant to the terms of Section 20; or

(H) Other Defaults. If Tenant shall be in default under any other provision of this Lease (other than those specified above) and shall remain so for a period of thirty (30) days after Landlord has provided written notice to Tenant of such default, provided that if any such default cannot reasonably be remedied by Tenant within thirty (30) days after written notice of default, then Tenant shall have such additional time as shall be reasonably necessary to remedy such default (but in no event longer than ninety (90) days), provided that during such time Tenant is continuously and diligently pursuing the remedy necessary to cure such default.
10.2 Landlord’s Remedies.
Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord may, without further notice to Tenant, and in addition to and not in lieu of, any other rights or remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity, exercise any one or more of the following rights:
(A) Give Tenant written notice of Landlord's intention to terminate this Lease on the date such notice is given or on any later date specified therein, whereupon, on the date specified in such notice, Tenant's right to possession of the Premises shall cease and this Lease shall thereupon be terminated; provided, however, that all of Tenant's obligations, including, but not limited to, payment of the amount of Base Rent and other obligations reserved in this Lease for the balance of the Lease Term, shall immediately be accelerated and due and payable; or
(B) Re-enter and take possession of the Premises or any part thereof and repossess the same as Landlord's former estate and expel Tenant and those claiming through or under Tenant, and remove the effects of both or either, using such force for such purposes as may be reasonably necessary, without being liable for prosecution thereof, without being deemed guilty of any manner of trespass, and without prejudice to any remedies for arrears of rent or preceding breach of covenants or conditions. Should Landlord elect to re-enter the Premises as provided in this Section 10.2 or should Landlord take possession pursuant to legal proceedings or pursuant to any notice provided for by law, Landlord may, from time to time, without terminating this Lease, relet the Premises or any part thereof in Landlord's or Tenant's name, but for the account of Tenant, for such term or terms (which may be greater or less than the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the term of this Lease) and on such conditions and upon such other terms (which may include concessions of free rent and alteration and repair of the Premises) as Landlord, in its discretion, may determine, and Landlord may collect and receive the rents therefor. Landlord shall in no way be responsible or liable for any failure to relet the Premises or any part thereof or for any failure to collect any rent due upon such reletting. No such re-entry or taking possession of the Premises by Landlord shall be construed as an election on Landlord's part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention be given to Tenant. No notice from Landlord hereunder or under a forcible entry and detainer statute or similar law shall constitute an election by Landlord to terminate this Lease unless such notice specifically so stated. Landlord reserves the right following any such re-entry and/or reletting, to exercise its right to terminate this Lease by giving Tenant such written notice, in which event, this Lease will terminate as specified in said notice.
(C) If Landlord terminates this Lease or ends Tenant’s right to possess the Premises without terminating this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.2 (in either case, the effective date of such event shall be the “Termination Date”), Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for the following (subject to Landlord’s obligation to mitigate its damages in accordance with applicable law):
(i) The worth at the Termination Date of any Rent which was due and unpaid as of the Termination Date; plus
(ii) The worth at the Termination Date of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Lease Term after the Termination Date exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; plus
(iii) Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant’s failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which, in the ordinary course of things, results therefrom, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees; brokers’ commissions; the costs of refurbishment, alterations, renovation and repair of the Building and removal (including any damage caused by such removal) and storage or disposal of Tenant’s personal property, equipment, fixtures; and any other refurbishment or improvement allowance or other costs or economic concessions provided, paid, granted or incurred by Landlord pursuant to this Lease. The unamortized cost of such concessions shall be determined by taking the total value of such concessions and multiplying such value by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of months of the Lease Term not yet elapsed as of the date on which this Lease is terminated, and the denominator of which is the total number of months of the Lease Term.
As used in Subsections 10.2(C)(i), the “worth at the time of award” is computed by allowing interest at the Interest Rate. As used in Subsection 10.2(C)(ii), the “worth at the time of award” is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank at the time of award plus one percent (1%). The foregoing damages shall be due and payable immediately upon demand by Landlord and shall bear interest at the Interest Rate (unless otherwise provided in this Lease) until paid. Landlord shall not be required to give Tenant notice of its elections under this Section 10.2.
10.3 Remedies Cumulative.
Any and all remedies set forth in this Lease: (i) shall be in addition to any and all other remedies Landlord may have at law or in equity, (ii) shall be cumulative, and (iii) may be pursued successively or concurrently as Landlord may elect. In addition to the other remedies in this Lease, Landlord shall be entitled to the restraint by injunction of the violation or attempted violation of any of the provisions of this Lease. To the extent allowed by applicable law, the exercise of any remedy by Landlord shall not be deemed an election of remedies or preclude Landlord from exercising any other remedies in the future. Except as provided to the contrary in this Lease, Tenant hereby waives, so far as permitted by law, for and on behalf of itself and all persons claiming through and under Tenant (including any leasehold mortgagee or other creditor), the service of any notice of intention to re-enter provided for in any Governmental Regulations or any other statute, law, rule or regulation (now existing or hereafter enacted).
10.4 Landlord’s Defaults and Tenant’s Remedies.
Landlord shall not be in default hereunder unless Landlord fails to observe or perform any material covenant, agreement or obligation to be performed by Landlord under this Lease, and such failure continues (subject to the next sentence) for thirty (30) days after written notice thereof by Tenant to Landlord; provided however, if such default is of a nature that prevents Tenant from using the Premises as is reasonably necessary to carry out the business of Tenant, then the period within which Landlord shall be obligated to cure or remedy such default shall be five (5) days. If any default by Landlord cannot reasonably be remedied within the respective thirty (30) or five (5) day periods set forth above after Landlord has received written notice of such default from Tenant and is diligently attempting to remedy
such default, then Landlord shall have such additional time as shall be reasonably necessary to remedy such default, provided that during such time Landlord is continuously and diligently pursuing the remedy necessary to cure such default, before Tenant may exercise its rights hereunder. Subject to the terms of Section 12.4, in the event Landlord fails to cure a default as provided above, Tenant shall have the right (so long as no Event of Default exists with respect to Tenant) to exercise such rights and remedies to which it may be entitled at law or in equity upon such default of Landlord except to the extent expressly limited by this Lease; provided, however, that in no event shall Tenant have the right to seek and Landlord shall not be liable for any consequential or punitive damages or interruption or loss of business, income or profits. Tenant hereby waives all claims against Landlord for any loss of business or income for any damage to any property in or about the Building, and for injury to or death of any persons, regardless of the cause of any such loss or event (including negligence) or time of occurrence.
Section 11. Covenant of Title and Quiet Enjoyment.
Landlord covenants that it has full right and power to execute this Lease (with any consents, if necessary, having been obtained) and to grant the estate demised herein and that Tenant, on payment of the Rent and performance of the covenants and agreements set forth herein, shall peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Premises and all rights, easements, appurtenances and privileges belonging or in anyway appertaining thereto during the Lease Term without interruption or hindrance of any person claiming through Landlord, subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease and any mortgage, deed of trust or agreement to which Landlord’s interest in this Lease is subordinate pursuant to Section 12.1 below or otherwise under the Lease.
Section 12. Subordination.
Tenant covenants and agrees with Landlord that this Lease is subject and subordinate to any mortgage, deed of trust, ground lease and/or security agreement which may now or hereafter encumber the Building or any interest of Landlord therein, and to any advances made on the security thereof and to any and all increases, renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof. This clause shall be self-operative, and no further instrument of subordination need be required by any owner or holder of any such ground lease, mortgage, deed of trust or security agreement. In confirmation of such subordination, however, at Landlord's written request, Tenant shall execute a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement that Landlord or an Interest Holder (defined below) may request within ten (10) days after being requested by Landlord to do so. In the event of the enforcement by the ground lessor, the mortgagee, the trustee, the beneficiary or the secured party (any such party being herein referred to as "Interest Holder") under any such ground lease, mortgage, deed of trust or security agreement (such documents being referred to herein as "Mortgage Documents") of the remedies provided for by law or by such ground lease, mortgage, deed of trust or security agreement, Tenant, upon written request of the Interest Holder or any person or party succeeding to the interest of Landlord as a result of such enforcement, will attorn to and automatically become the tenant of such Interest Holder or successor in interest without any change in the terms or other provisions of this Lease; provided, however, that such Interest Holder or successor in interest shall not be bound by (i) any payment of Rent for more than one month in advance except prepayments in the nature of security for the performance by Tenant of its obligations under this Lease, or (ii) any amendment or modification of this Lease made without the written consent of such Interest Holder or such successor in interest. Upon request by such Interest Holder or successor in interest, whether before or after the enforcement of its remedies, Tenant shall execute and deliver an instrument or instruments confirming and evidencing the attornment herein set forth.
12.2 Non-Disturbance Agreement.
At Tenant’s request, Landlord agrees, upon written request by Tenant, to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain from the Interest Holder a non-disturbance agreement with Tenant, in a form satisfactory to the Interest Holder stating that Tenant's right to the continued use and possession of the Premises shall be under the same terms and conditions as set forth in this Lease provided that at such time no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing. "Commercially reasonable efforts" of Landlord shall not require Landlord to incur any cost, expense or liability to obtain such agreement, it being agreed that Tenant shall be responsible for any fee or review costs charged by the Interest Holder. Landlord's failure to obtain a non-disturbance, subordination and attornment agreement for Tenant shall have no effect on the rights, obligations and liabilities of Landlord and Tenant or be considered to be a default by Landlord hereunder.
12.3 Subordination of Mortgage Documents.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 12.1, above, any Interest Holder may at any time subordinate its lien to this Lease in whole or in part, without any need to obtain Tenant's consent, and without regard to their respective dates of execution, delivery or recordation. In that event, to the extent set forth in such document, the Interest Holder shall have the same rights with respect to this Lease as would have existed if this Lease had been executed, and a memorandum thereof recorded, prior to the execution, delivery and recordation of the mortgage or deed of trust. In confirmation of such subordination, however, Tenant shall execute any appropriate certificate or instrument that Landlord or the Interest Holder may request within ten (10) days after being requested to do so.
12.4 Security Deposit.
Interest Holder or purchaser shall be responsible for the return of any security deposit and rent voluntarily paid in advance by Tenant only to the extent the security deposit or rent is received by such Interest Holder or purchaser.
12.5 Notice and Right to Cure.
Tenant shall send by registered or certified mail to any Interest Holder that shall have notified Tenant in writing that it is the holder of such interest in or lien upon the Premises, a copy of any notice of default sent by Tenant to Landlord. If Landlord fails to cure such default within the required time period under this Lease, but Interest Holder begins to cure within twenty (20) days after such period and proceeds diligently to complete such cure, then the ground lessor or mortgagee shall have such additional time as is necessary to complete such cure, including any time necessary to obtain possession if possession is necessary to cure, and Tenant shall not begin to enforce its remedies so long as the cure is being diligently pursued.
Section 13. Indemnification From Third Party Claims
13.1 Tenant’s Indemnity.
Except to the extent caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, Tenant shall indemnify and save Landlord, Landlord’s mortgagee, deed of trust trustee and beneficiary, and Landlord’s agents, contractors, subcontractors, employees, shareholders, directors, officers, affiliates, subsidiaries, successors and assigns (“Landlord Related Parties”) harmless from and against all penalties, claims, costs, demands, damages, losses, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), suits or liabilities of
whatsoever nature (collectively, “Claims”) brought by third parties and that arise from Tenant’s or its subtenant’s, assignee’s, agent’s, licensee’s, contractor’s, subcontractor’s, concessionaire’s or employee’s (herein, Tenant and such other parties are collectively referred to as the “Tenant Parties”) use and occupancy of the Premises and the Building, the conduct of Tenant’s business, any breach or Event of Default by Tenant, or from any other activity, work or thing, act, omission or neglect done, permitted or suffered by Tenant or the Tenant Parties in or about the Premises and the Building (including violations of Governmental Regulations). If any such proceeding is filed by a third party against Landlord or any such indemnified party, Tenant agrees to defend Landlord or such party in such proceeding at Tenant’s sole cost, by legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to Landlord and such indemnified party, if requested by Landlord. In no event shall Tenant be obligated to indemnify Landlord or any of the other parties identified above for any willful or negligent act or omission of Landlord or such other party.
13.2 Landlord’s Indemnity.
Except for Claims covered by Tenant’s indemnity pursuant to Section 13.1, Landlord shall indemnify and save Tenant and Tenant’s agents, contractors, subcontractors, employees, shareholders, directors, officers, affiliates, subsidiaries, successors and assigns (“Tenant Related Parties”) harmless from and against all Claims brought by third parties and that arise from Landlord’s or its agent’s, gross negligence or willful misconduct in the operation of the Building. If any such proceeding is filed by a third party against Tenant or any such indemnified party, Landlord agrees to defend Tenant or such party in such proceeding at Landlord’s sole cost, by legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to Tenant and such indemnified party, if requested by Tenant. In no event shall Landlord be obligated to indemnify Tenant or any of the other parties identified above for any willful or negligent act or omission of Tenant or such other party.
The provisions of this Section 13 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease.
Section 14. Surrender.
Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant shall peaceably leave and surrender the Premises to Landlord broom clean and free of debris and otherwise in the condition in which the Premises are required to be maintained by the terms of this Lease, reasonable wear and tear and damage by casualty which Tenant is not obligated to restore under this Lease excepted. Tenant shall surrender all keys for the Premises to Landlord at the place then fixed for the payment of Rent and shall inform Landlord of the combinations to all locks, safes and vaults in the Premises. Tenant shall, at its expense, remove from the Premises on or prior to expiration or earlier termination of this Lease (i) all furnishings, fixtures and equipment situated thereon, (ii) those Alterations that Tenant is required to remove pursuant to Section 3.3 hereof, and (iii) those items of personalty that Tenant brings into the Premises. Tenant shall not remove any equipment, conduits, fixtures, water, plumbing, electrical, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, life safety, sprinkler and sewer service to the Premises, (except to the extent such item is an Alteration and Tenant is required to remove the same pursuant to Section 3.3 hereof), all of which together with any other furnishings, fixtures and equipment not removed by Tenant as provided above, shall become the property of Landlord upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease and shall be conclusively presumed to have been conveyed to Landlord under this Lease via a bill of sale without further payment or credit by Landlord to Tenant. In addition, Tenant shall, at its expense, on or prior to such expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, repair any damage caused by such removal. Any property not so removed that Landlord requires to be removed, may be removed by Landlord and stored and/or retained or sold by Landlord and all the costs of such removal, storage and disposition as well as the cost of repairing any damage caused by such removal, shall be
borne by Tenant. Tenant’s obligation under this paragraph shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease with respect to any claims brought by Landlord within five (5) years of such expiration or termination.
Section 15. Hazardous Materials.
15.1 Hazardous Substances.
(a) Definitions. As used in this Lease, the term “Hazardous Substance” shall mean any product, substance, or waste whose presence, use, manufacture, disposal, transportation, or release, either by itself or in combination with other materials expected to be on the Premises or the Building, is (i) potentially injurious to the public health, safety or welfare, the environment or the Premises or the Building, (ii) regulated or monitored by any governmental authority, (iii) a basis for potential liability of Landlord to any governmental agency or third party under any applicable statute or common law theory, or (iv) is defined as “hazardous” or “extremely hazardous” under any Governmental Regulations. Hazardous Substances shall include, but not be limited to, PCB’s hydrocarbons, petroleum, gasoline, asbestos and/or crude oil or any products, by-products or fractions thereof. As used in this Lease, the term “Reportable Use” shall mean (i) the installation or use of any above ground storage tank, (ii) the generation, possession, storage, use, transportation, release or disposal of a Hazardous Substance that requires a permit from, or with respect to which a report, notice, registration or business plan is required to be filed with, any governmental authority, and/or (iii) the presence at the Premises or the Building of a Hazardous Substance with respect to which any Governmental Regulations require that a notice be given to persons entering or occupying the Premises, the Building, or neighboring properties.
(b) Reportable Uses and Hazardous Substances Require Consent. Tenant shall not engage in any activity in or on the Premises or the Building which constitutes a Reportable Use of Hazardous Substances, nor shall Tenant or Tenant Parties generate, possess, store, use, release or dispose of any Hazardous Substances in, on, under or about the Premises or the Building, without the express prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, or delayed and shall be conditioned on, among other factors, Tenant’s timely compliance (at Tenant’s expense) with all Governmental Regulations and reasonable conditions requested by Landlord. In addition, Landlord may condition its consent to any Reportable Use upon receiving such reasonable additional assurances as Landlord reasonably deems necessary to protect itself, the public, the Premises, the Building, and/or the environment against damage, contamination, injury and/or liability, including, but not limited to, the installation (and removal on or before the expiration or termination of this Lease) of protective modifications (such as concrete encasements).
(c) Duty to Inform Landlord. If Tenant knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, that a Hazardous Substance (other than Permitted Hazardous Substances and common cleaning products in appropriate quantities) has come to be located in, on, under or about the Premises or the Building, Tenant shall immediately give written notice of such fact to Landlord, and promptly provide Landlord with a copy of any report, notice, claim or other documentation which is has concerning the presence of such Hazardous Substance.
(d) Tenant Remediation. Tenant shall not cause or permit any Hazardous Substance to be spilled or released in, on, under, or about the Premises or the Building (including through the plumbing or sanitary sewer system) and shall promptly, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, take all investigatory and/or remedial action reasonably recommended, whether or not formally ordered or required, for the cleanup of any contamination of, and for the maintenance, security and/or monitoring of the Premises, the Building or neighboring properties, (i) that was caused by Tenant, or (ii) pertaining to or involving any Hazardous Substance brought onto the Building or any portion thereof by or for Tenant, or (iii) pertaining to or
involving any Hazardous Substance brought onto the Premises by Tenant or any Tenant Parties during the term that Tenant had possession of the Premises or any portion thereof (collectively, the “Tenant Liabilities”). Tenant shall be solely responsible for the remediation of any condition concerning any Hazardous Substance in, on, under or about the Premises or the Building to the extent required under this Section 15.1, but only to the extent constituting Tenant Liabilities.
(e) Investigations and Remediations. Tenant shall have responsibility and shall pay for any investigations or remediation measures required by governmental entities having jurisdiction with respect to the Tenant Liabilities. Tenant shall cooperate fully in any such activities at the request of Landlord, including allowing Landlord and Landlord’s agents to have reasonable access to the Premises at reasonable times in order to carry out any investigative and remedial actions which Landlord may elect to do.
15.2 Tenant’s Compliance with Governmental Regulations. Tenant shall obtain, maintain and strictly comply with, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, any and all Governmental Regulations related to Tenant’s generation, possession, storage, use, release or disposal of any Hazardous Substance in or about the Premises, the Building or the Building (if the same is permitted under this Lease), including without limitation, (i) all Environmental Protection Agency identification numbers, (ii) all air, wastewater, sewer and other permits and governmental approvals, and (iii) all permits and governmental approvals related to Tenant’s use of the Premises and the Common Areas. Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole expense, fully, diligently and in a timely manner comply with all requirements of any applicable fire insurance underwriter or rating bureau, and the reasonable recommendations of Landlord’s engineers and/or consultants which relate to the use of Hazardous Substances in the Premises or the Building, without regard to whether said requirements are now in effect or become effective after the Commencement Date. Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days after receipt of Landlord’s written request, provide Landlord with copies of all permits and other documents in Tenant’s possession or control, evidencing Tenant’s compliance with any Governmental Regulations specified by Landlord, and shall immediately upon receipt by Tenant, notify Landlord in writing (and immediately provide to Landlord copies of any documents involved) of any threatened or actual claim, notice, citation, warning, complaint or report pertaining to or involving the failure of Tenant or the Premises to comply with any Governmental Regulations or the provisions of this Section 15.
15.3 Inspection; Compliance. Landlord and Landlord’s Lender and consultants shall have the right to enter the Premises at reasonable times upon at least two (2) business days’ prior written notice (except in the event of an emergency, when no notice need be given) to Tenant for the purpose of inspecting the condition of the Premises and for verifying compliance by Tenant with this Section 15; provided, however, no notice shall be required for entry to the Premises (a) in the event of an emergency, (b) for scheduled janitorial services, or (c) by the on-site employees or agents of Landlord or Landlord’s property manager.
15.4 Tenant Indemnification. Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless each of Landlord, Landlord Parties, and Landlord’s shareholders, directors, officers, affiliates, subsidiaries, successors and assigns from and against any and all damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, claims, causes of action, demands, expenses, costs, fines, penalties, and attorneys’ and consultants’ fees arising out of or involving (i) any Hazardous Substance in, on, under or about the Premises or the Building that was caused by Tenant, or (ii) pertaining to or involving any Hazardous Substance brought onto the Building or any portion thereof by or for Tenant, or (iii) pertaining to or involving any Hazardous Substance brought onto the Premises with the knowledge or consent of Tenant during the term that Tenant had possession of the Premises or any portion thereof. Tenant’s obligations shall include, but not be limited to, the effects of any contamination or injury to person, property or the environment created or suffered by Tenant, and the cost of investigation, removal, remediation, restoration and/or abatement,
and shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease. No termination, cancellation or release agreement entered into by Landlord and Tenant shall release Tenant from its obligations under this Lease with respect to Hazardous Substances, unless Landlord specifically agrees thereto in writing at the time of such agreement and such agreement specifically identifies this Section 15.4 of this Lease.
Section 16. Holding Over.
If Tenant remains in occupancy of any portion of the Premises after the expiration of the Lease Term, Tenant shall become a month to month tenant upon all terms of this Lease as might be applicable to such month to month tenancy, except that Tenant shall pay Base Rent and Additional Rent at a rate equal to (i) 150% of the rate effective immediately prior to such holdover for the first two (2) months of such holdover, and (ii) 200% beginning with the third (3rd ) month of such holdover. If Tenant holds over for more than two (2) months, and if Landlord so elects by written notice to Tenant, such holdover shall constitute a renewal of this Lease for a period of one (1) year, at the greater of (i) 200% of Base Rent payable during the last calendar month of the Lease Term and (ii) the then current market rate, as determined by Landlord in its sole discretion. The foregoing shall not be construed as giving Tenant the right to remain in possession of the Premises after expiration of the Lease Term, and Tenant will pay to Landlord, upon request, all damages that Landlord may suffer on account of Tenant's failure to surrender possession as and when aforesaid and will indemnify Landlord against all liabilities, costs and expenses (including all reasonable attorneys' fees and costs if any) arising out of Tenant's delay in so delivering possession, including claims of any succeeding tenant. No acceptance of Rent payable pursuant to this Section 16 by Landlord shall be construed to extend the Lease Term or operate as a waiver of Landlord’s right to regain immediate possession of the Premises by summary proceedings or any other remedy.
Section 17. Intentionally Deleted.
Section 18. Notices
Any notice which either party is required or may desire to give to the other shall be in writing and sent by United States certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, or by Federal Express or similar generally recognized overnight courier regularly providing proof of delivery, addressed to the parties as set forth in the preamble to this Lease (subject to the right of any party to designate a different address for its receipt of notices hereunder within the 48 contiguous continental United States of America by notice duly given). Any notice so given shall be deemed to have been given as of the first to occur of (i) actual delivery, (ii) if mailed, the second business day after being deposited in the U.S. Mails, proper postage prepaid, addressed as provided above, or (iii) if sent by overnight courier, on the first business day after being delivered to such courier with all charges for overnight delivery having been prepaid.
Section 19. Broker’s Representation.
Landlord has agreed to pay to Michael Crane of Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. ("Landlord's Broker") and to Charlie Lodge of Ecospace Commercial, (“Tenant’s Broker”) real estate brokerage commissions as set forth in separate commission agreements between Landlord and Landlord's Broker and Landlord and Tenant's Broker, respectively. Landlord and Tenant hereby represent and warrant each to the other that they have not employed any other agents, brokers or other such parties in connection with this Lease, and each agrees that they shall hold the other harmless from and against any and all claims of all other agents, brokers or other such parties claiming by, through or under the respective indemnifying party. The representations and modifications set forth in this Section 19 shall survive the cancellation or termination of this Lease.
Section 20. Estoppel Certificates.
Within ten (10) days after request by Landlord, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord a written certificate substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit G.
Section 21. Limitation of Liability.
Any liability of Landlord under this Lease shall be limited solely to Landlord’s equity in the Building, and in no event shall personal liability be asserted against Landlord in connection with this Lease, nor shall any recourse be had to any other property or assets of Landlord or against any property or assets of any of Landlord Parties. If Landlord shall at any time transfer its interest in the Building or this Lease, Landlord shall be released of any obligations occurring after such transfer, and Tenant shall look solely to Landlord’s successors for performance of such obligations.
Section 22. Unrelated Business Income.
If Landlord is advised by its counsel at any time that any part of the payments (other than Base Rent and Additional Rent) by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease, as it may be amended from time to time, may be characterized as unrelated business income under the United States Internal Revenue Code and its regulations, as each of the same may be amended, then Tenant shall enter into any reasonable amendment proposed by Landlord to avoid such income, so long as the amendment does not require Tenant to make more payments or accept fewer services from Landlord, than this Lease provides.
Section 23. ERISA.
Tenant represents and warrants that it is not and is not acting on behalf of (i) an “employee benefit plan” within the meaning of Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), (ii) a “plan” within the meaning of Section 4975 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended or (iii) an entity deemed to hold “plan assets” within the meaning of 29 C.F.R. § 2510.3-101 of any such employee benefit plan or plans.
Section 24. Rights Reserved to Landlord.
The following rights, exercisable without notice and without affecting any of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, are all reserved by Landlord: (1) upon reasonable notice, to exhibit the Premises at reasonable hours to prospective purchasers, and mortgagees of the Building and, in the final nine (9) months of the Lease Term, to prospective tenants; (2) to enter the Premises after reasonable notice (except in the event of an emergency, when no notice need be given) at reasonable hours for reasonable purposes, including inspection, the provision of services and the performance of the obligations of Landlord hereunder; (3) to regulate access to telephone, electrical and other utility lines and closets in the Building and to require use of designated contractors for any work involving access to the same; (4) to approve, in its discretion and prior to installation, any shades, blinds, ventilators or window treatments of any kind, as well as any lighting within the Premises that may be visible from the exterior of the Building; (5) to approve the weight, size, placement and time and manner of movement within the Premises and the Building of any safe or other heavy article of Tenant’s personal property, without any liability on account of such approval; (6) make changes to the design and layout of the Building, including, without limitation, changes to driveways, entrances, loading and unloading areas, direction of traffic, landscaped areas and walkways, and parking areas (subject to the terms of Exhibit I); (7) use or close temporarily the Common Areas and/or other portions of the Building while engaged in making improvements, repairs and alterations to the Building or any portion thereof; and (8) perform such other acts and make such other
changes with respect to the Building, as Landlord may, in the exercise of good-faith, reasonable business judgment, deem to be appropriate or desirable.
Section 25. Security Deposit.
Concurrent with its execution of this Lease, Tenant shall deposit with Landlord an amount equal to Seven Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($750,000.00) (the “Security Deposit”) which sum shall be held by Landlord, without interest, as security for the performance by Tenant of its obligations under this Lease. Provided that (a) Tenant has not committed a Default hereunder, and (b) all Rent payments made by Tenant were received by Landlord on or before the due date during the prior twelve (12) month period, on the commencement of the thirteenth (13th) full month of the Term, and thereafter on the one year anniversary of such date, upon written request of Tenant, Landlord shall return one-quarter (1/4) of the original amount of the Security Deposit to Tenant until the Security Deposit is in the amount of Zero Dollars ($0.00). The Security Deposit is not an advance payment of Rent or a measure of Landlord’s damages in the event of a default by Tenant. If at any time during the Lease Term, Tenant fails to pay when due Rent or any other sums owed by Tenant hereunder (after the expiration of applicable notice and cure periods, if any), then Landlord may at its option apply any portion of the Security Deposit to the payment of such overdue sums. If Tenant defaults under any other obligation of Tenant under this Lease (after the expiration of applicable notice and cure periods, if any), then Landlord, in its sole and absolute discretion, may apply as much of Security Deposit as necessary, to compensate Landlord for loss, cost or damage incurred or sustained by Landlord as the result of such default (including, without limitation, the cost incurred by Landlord to remedy such default and including any interest accrued in connection with any overdue sums). If any portion of the Security Deposit is applied by Landlord as provided herein, Tenant shall, upon demand, remit to Landlord an amount sufficient to restore the Security Deposit to the amount existing prior to Landlord’s application of such Security Deposit. Tenant’s failure to remit such amount within ten (10) days of demand shall constitute an Event of Default under this Lease. Landlord shall remit to Tenant any balance of the Security Deposit remaining at the expiration or termination of the Lease.
In the event of the sale or transfer of Landlord's interest in the Building, Landlord shall transfer the Security Deposit to such purchaser, in which event Tenant shall look only to the new Landlord for the return of the Security Deposit, and Landlord shall thereupon be released from all liability to Tenant for the return of the Security Deposit. Tenant agrees that the provisions of this Section 25 shall govern the treatment of Tenant’s Security Deposit in all respects under this Lease.
Section 26. Other Matters.
Captions of this Lease are solely for convenience of reference and shall not in any way limit or amplify the terms and provisions hereof.
26.2 Partial Invalidity.
If any term, covenant or condition of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease or the application of such term, covenant or condition to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable shall not be affected thereby and each term, covenant or condition of this Lease shall be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
26.3 Entire Agreement.
All understandings and agreements, oral or written, previously made between the parties are merged into this Lease and this Lease fully and completely expresses the agreement between Landlord and Tenant. Tenant expressly agrees and acknowledges that neither Landlord nor the Landlord Parties has made any representations or warranties concerning the Premises or the Building except those expressly set forth in this Lease and Tenant is not relying on any express or implied representation or warranty except those expressly set forth herein. This Lease cannot be amended or modified except by a written instrument executed by Landlord and Tenant.
26.4 Governing Law.
This Lease shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Colorado.
26.5 Successors and Assigns.
Subject to Section 8 and Section 12, the conditions, covenants and agreements contained in this Lease shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns.
No failure by either party to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof, or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.
26.7 Litigation and Arbitration Costs.
If, on account of any breach or default by Tenant in its respective obligations under the terms and conditions of this Lease, it shall become reasonably necessary or appropriate for Landlord to employ or consult with an attorney or collection agency concerning or to enforce or defend any of its rights or remedies arising under this Lease or to collect any sums due, the unsuccessful party agrees to pay all reasonable costs and fees so incurred by Landlord, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. In the event of any litigation or arbitration between Tenant and Landlord to enforce any provision of this Lease or any right of either party hereto, the unsuccessful party to such litigation or arbitration shall pay to the successful party all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by the successful party therein.
This Lease may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute one and the same agreement.
26.9 Accord and Satisfaction.
No payment by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than the Rent stipulated herein shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest stipulated Rent, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment of Rent be
deemed an accord and satisfaction. Landlord shall accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover the balance of such Rent or to pursue any other remedy in this Lease.
26.10 Time of the Essence.
Time is of the essence of each provision of this Lease.
26.11 No Presumption Against Drafter.
Landlord and Tenant understand, agree, and acknowledge that this Lease has been freely negotiated by both parties; and in any controversy, dispute, or contest over the meaning, interpretation, validity, or enforceability of this Lease or any of its terms or conditions, there shall be no inference, presumption, or conclusion drawn whatsoever against either party by virtue of that party having drafted this Lease or any portion thereof.

THIS OPTION AGREEMENT TO LEASE is attached to the Lease between SF INFINITE DRIVE, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as landlord (“Landlord”), and ANTRIABIO, INC., a Delaware corporation, as tenant (“Tenant”).
Tenant shall have the following option (the "Option") to renew this Lease:
1. Subject to the provisions of this Option Agreement, Tenant may, by notifying Landlord of its election in writing ("Extension Notice"), renew this Lease for one (1) additional lease term (the "Second Lease Term") beginning on the day next following the expiration date of the Lease Term and continuing for five (5) years thereafter. Such renewal shall be on all of the terms and conditions of this Lease which are not inconsistent herewith, except that the rentals payable during the Second Lease Term shall be at the existing fair market rental (the "Fair Market Rate") of comparable space as of the date of renewal, but not less than the Base Rent, including adjustments to Base Rent, payable with respect to the final year of the Lease Term.
2. The Fair Market Rate for the Premises shall be the then going rate for comparable space in the Building as determined by Landlord in good faith. Landlord shall notify Tenant of Landlord's good faith determination of the prevailing Fair Market Rate no later than ten (10) months prior to the end of the Lease Term. No later than one (1) month after Landlord notifies Tenant of the prevailing Fair Market Rate, Tenant shall notify Landlord whether Tenant accepts Landlord's determination. If Tenant fails to so notify Landlord, Tenant will be deemed conclusively to have accepted Landlord's determination. If Tenant does not accept Landlord's determination (and if Tenant is not deemed to have accepted Landlord's determination), then Landlord and Tenant will each appoint a real estate broker with at least ten (10) years’ full-time professional experience in leasing commercial properties similar to the Premises in the geographic area in which the Premises are located and each broker shall submit an opinion of the fair market rental value of the Premises. If either Landlord or Tenant does not appoint a broker within ten (10) days after the other has given notice of the name of its broker, the single broker appointed will be the sole broker and will set the then fair market rental value of the Premises. If two brokers are appointed pursuant to this Section, those brokers will each submit an opinion of the fair market rental value of the Premises within thirty (30) days after the second broker has been appointed, and the fair market rental value of the Premises shall be the average of the two values submitted by the brokers. If either Landlord or Tenant objects to the fair market rental value of the Premises determined in accordance with this Section, the objecting party shall notify the other party of its objection within fifteen (15) days of the receipt of the final determination of the fair market rental value of the Premises under this Section, and Tenant's election to exercise the Option shall be deemed to be rescinded, Tenant shall have no further rights under the Option, and the Lease shall expire on the original date that the Lease Term was to expire.
3. Tenant may exercise the Option to Extend if and only if (A) Tenant is not then in Default or in Breach, and (B) Landlord receives from Tenant an irrevocable written notice exercising the Option to Extend at least nine (9) months, but not sooner than twelve (12) months, before the Expiration Date. If Tenant commits a Default during the period after the exercise of the Option to Extend but prior to the commencement date of the Option Term, and fails to cure such Default within the applicable cure period (but no later than the day immediately prior to the commencement of the Option Term if earlier), then in Landlord’s sole discretion, Landlord may treat Tenant’s election to exercise the Option to Extend as ineffective, in which event this Lease shall expire on the Expiration Date as of Tenant had not given such notice.
4. The Option to Extend granted to Tenant is personal to Tenant and shall not be transferable or assignable, by operation of law or otherwise, voluntarily, to any assignee of this Lease, or sublessee of all or any part of the Premises, or any other person or entity other than a Permitted Transferee. Time shall be of the essence with respect to all of the provisions of this Option Agreement.

1. Landlord hereby agrees to make available to Tenant, and Tenant hereby agrees to take, during the full term of this Lease, permits (the “Parking Permits”) to park automobiles at a ratio of 3 permits per 1,000 RSF of the Premises (i.e., 81 parking spaces total) in the unassigned parking areas surrounding the Building (the “Parking Facilities”), upon the terms and conditions of this Exhibit I. During the Lease Term, Tenant may surrender any Parking Permits and when surrendered, Landlord shall have no further obligation to make the number of surrendered Parking Permits available to Tenant for Lease.
2. If the parking spaces covered by any of the Parking Permits are not available or become unavailable to Tenant (due to causes beyond the reasonable control of Landlord) during any portion of the Lease Term, Landlord shall use good faith efforts to make available to Tenant alternate parking spaces located reasonably near the Building until the parking spaces covered by the Parking Permits are made available to Tenant.
3. Tenant's right to park in the Parking Facilities shall be non-exclusive and Tenant's use of the Parking Permits shall be subject to such rules and regulations as may be promulgated by Landlord or the operator of the Parking Facilities from time to time.
4. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord shall have the right (in addition to all other rights, remedies and recourse hereunder and at law) to suspend any or all of the Parking Permits without prior notice or warning to Tenant.
5. Landlord reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to determine whether the Parking Facilities are or are becoming overburdened, to allocate and assign parking spaces among Tenant and other tenants, to reconfigure the Parking Facilities, and/or to modify the existing ingress to and egress from the Parking Facilities as Landlord shall deem appropriate.
6. Use of the Parking Facilities is at the sole risk of the users of such facilities, and Landlord assumes no liability for personal injury, theft or property damage, or any other loss occurring during, as a result of, or in connection with such use. Landlord shall have no liability whatsoever to Tenant or any other person (including, without limitation, Tenant's agents, employees, invitees, guests, clients or customers) for any property damage to vehicles or their contents and/or personal injury which might occur as a result of or in connection with the parking of vehicles in or about the Building. Tenant shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all costs, claims, causes of action, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) which Landlord may incur in connection with or arising out of use of the Parking Facilities by Tenant and/or Tenant's agents, employees, invitees, guests, clients or customers.
7. To ensure that only those parties designated by Tenant are using the Parking Facilities, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a complete list of the names of all of Tenant's employees issued access cards, which list shall contain the corresponding license plate numbers of those vehicles owned, leased or used by each of said employees. Such list shall be updated by Tenant periodically, as necessary, and shall contain a specific designation as to which vehicles of which employees have been issued decals for parking spaces.
8. Intentionally Deleted.
9. This Exhibit I shall not be deemed to create a bailment between the parties hereto, it being expressly agreed and understood that the only relationship created between Landlord and Tenant pursuant to this Exhibit I is that of licensor and licensee, respectively.

To the extent that Expenses include the costs of capital improvements as provided in this paragraph, Landlord shall be permitted to do the same with respect to the costs of leasing such capital item.
Landlord shall segregate Expenses into the following categories (each, a “Sector”): (i) clean room space; (ii) lab space; (iii) office space and (iv) storage space.

“Lease Year” shall mean each consecutive twelve-month period beginning with the Rent Commencement Date, except that if the Rent Commencement Date is other than the first day of a calendar month, then the first Lease Year shall be the period from the Rent Commencement Date through the date twelve months after the last day of the calendar month in which the Rent Commencement Date occurs, and each subsequent Lease Year shall be the period of twelve months following the last day of the prior Lease Year.
“Sector” and “Sector Expenses” see definition of Expenses.
“Taxes” shall mean all taxes and assessments, special or ordinary, and all other impositions of every kind and nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, any transit tax, sewer rents, impact fee, and school district assessments), which may be levied, assessed, charged or imposed upon the Project or any personal property owned or leased by Landlord and used therewith, together with all fees and costs incurred by Landlord for the purpose of contesting or protesting the amounts or rates of Taxes. Taxes shall not include any income, excess profit, franchise, capital stock, estate or inheritance tax payable by Landlord except as specifically provided in the next sentence and in Section 2.4. If at any time during the Lease Term the method of taxation prevailing at the Commencement Date shall be altered so that any new or additional tax assessment, levy, imposition, or charge, or any part thereof, shall be imposed in place or partly in place of any Taxes or contemplated increase therein, including without limitation any tax, assessment, levy, imposition or charge on Rent, then all such taxes, assessments, levies, impositions or charges shall be deemed to be Taxes for the purpose hereof, to the extent that such Taxes would be payable if the Project was the only property of Landlord subject to such tax. If any assessments constituting Taxes are or may be payable to the applicable taxing authority in installments over more than one Lease Year then, Landlord shall cause such Taxes to be paid in installments, and only those installments (plus any interest thereon) payable during a Lease Year in which the Lease Term falls shall be included in Taxes for such Lease Year in which payment is due. Otherwise, Taxes “for” a Lease Year shall be deemed to refer, at Landlord’s option, either to Taxes payable in such Lease Year or to Taxes levied, assessed or otherwise accrued or imposed for such Lease Year without regard to when such Taxes are payable. Taxes shall not include interest and penalties for late payment, except to the extent that such penalty or interest is attributable to Tenant’s failure to remit on a timely basis Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of Taxes. If such interest or penalty is attributable solely to Tenant’s failure to remit Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of Taxes, then Tenant shall be solely responsible for payment of such interest and/or penalty. If such interest or penalty is attributable to such failure by Tenant and to other tenants’ failure to pay their pro rata share of Taxes, Tenant shall pay its proportionate share of the amount of such interest and/or penalty.
“Tenant’s Pro Rata Share” As used in this Lease, “Tenant’s Pro Rata Share” shall mean the ratio of dividing (i) RSF for the applicable Sector in the Premises by (ii) the total RSF for all Sector space in the Building, as the same may be modified by Landlord from time to time. The initial Tenant’s Pro Rata Share for each Sector of the Premises is as follows: (1) for lab space – 30%, which has been computed by dividing 13,474 RSF (Lab Space in the Premises) by 45,498 RSF (total Lab Space in the Building); (2) for office space – 14%, which has been computed by dividing 10,364 RSF (Office Space in the Premises) by 72,040 RSF (total Office Space in the Building); and (3) for clean room space – 11%, which has been computed by dividing 3,423 RSF (Clean Room Space in the premises) by 31,748 RSF (Clean Room Space in Building).
