(b) Consent. Any Alterations or Utility Installations that Tenant shall desire to make and which require the consent of the Landlord shall be presented to Landlord in written form with detailed plans.

Landlord may (but without obligation to do so) condition its consent to any requested Alteration or Utility Installation that costs $10,000.00 or more upon Tenant’s providing Landlord with a lien and completion bond in an amount equal to one and one-half times the estimated cost of such Alteration or Utility Installation.

(c) Lien Protection. Tenant shall pay when due all claims for labor or materials furnished or alleged to have been furnished to or for Tenant at or for use on the Premises, which claims are or may be secured by any mechanic’s or materialmen’s lien against the Premises or any interest therein. Tenant shall give Landlord not less than ten (10) days’ notice prior to the commencement of any work in, on, or about the Premises, and Landlord shall have the right to post notices of non-responsibility in or on the Premises as provided by law. If Tenant shall, in good faith, contest the validity of any such lien, claim or demand, then Tenant shall, at its sole expense, defend and protect itself, Landlord and the Premises against the same and shall pay and satisfy any such adverse judgment that may be rendered thereon before the enforcement thereof against the Landlord or the Premises

This will not include Tenant Improvements in Exhibit A

Tenant shall obtain and keep in force during the term of this Lease a Commercial General Liability policy of insurance protecting Tenant, Landlord and any Lender(s) whose names have been provided to Tenant in writing (as additional insured) against claims for bodily injury, personal injury and property damage based upon, involving or arising out of the ownership, use, occupancy or maintenance of the Premises and all areas appurtenant thereto. Such insurance shall be on an occurrence basis providing single limit coverage in an amount not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence with an “Additional Insured-Managers or Landlords of Premises: endorsement and contain the “Amendment of the Pollution Exclusion” endorsement for damage caused by heat, smoke or fumes from a hostile fire. The policy shall not contain any intra-insured exclusions as between insured persons or organizations, but shall include coverage for liability assumed under this Lease as an “insured contract” for the performance of Tenant’s indemnity obligations under this Lease. The limits of said insurance required by this Lease or as carried by Tenant shall not, however, limit the liability of Tenant nor relieve Tenant of any obligation hereunder. All insurance to be required by this Lease or as carried by Tenant shall not, however, limit the liability of Tenant nor relieve Tenant of any obligation hereunder. All insurance to be carried by Tenant shall be primary to and not contributory with any similar insurance carried by Landlord, whose insurance shall be considered excess insurance only.

(b) Carried by Landlord. Landlord shall also maintain liability insurance described in Paragraph 8.2(a) above, in addition to and not in lieu of, the insurance required to be maintained by Tenant except coverage for pollution liability, premises pollution, on site and off site, including release of any pollutants, toxins, or contaminants, whether such release is sudden or prolonged or willful or accidental, shall only be carried solely by Tenant.

Such insurance shall be for full replacement cost, as the same shall exist from time to time, or the amount required by any Lender(s), but in no event more than the commercially reasonable and available insurable value thereof if, by reason of the unique nature or age of the improvements involved, such latter amount is less than full replacement cost. Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations, Trade Fixtures and Tenant’s personal property shall be insured by Tenant pursuant to Paragraph 8.4. If the coverage is available and commercially appropriate, Landlord’s policy or policies shall insure against all risks of direct physical loss or damage (and at Landlord’s option the perils of flood and/or earthquake), including coverage for any additional costs resulting from debris removal and reasonable amounts of coverage for the enforcement of any ordinance or law regulating the reconstruction or replacement of any undamaged sections of the Building required to be demolished or removed by reason of the enforcement of any building, zoning, safety or land use laws as the result of a covered loss, but not including plate glass insurance. Said policy or policies shall also contain an agreed valuation provision in lieu of any co-insurance clause, waiver of subrogation, and inflation guard protection causing an increase in the annual property insurance coverage amount by a factor of not less than the adjusted U.S. Department of Labor Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for the city nearest to where the Premises are located.

Said insurance may provide that in the event the Lease is terminated by reason of an insured loss, the period of indemnity for such coverage shall be extended beyond the date of the completion of repairs or replacement of the Premises, to provide for one full year’s loss of rental revenues from the date of any such loss. Said insurance shall contain an agreed valuation provision in lieu of any co-insurance clause, and the amount of coverage shall be adjusted annually to reflect the projected rental income, Real Property Taxes, insurance premium costs and other expenses, if any, otherwise payable, for the next 12-month period. Common Area Operating Expenses shall include any deductible amount in the event of such loss.

(c) Adjacent Premises. Tenant shall pay for any increase in the premiums for the property insurance of the Building and for the Common Areas or other buildings in the Industrial Center if said increase is caused by Tenant’s acts, omissions, use or occupancy of the Premises.

(d) Tenant’s Improvements. Since Landlord is the Insuring Party, Landlord shall not be required to insure Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations unless the item in question has become the property of Landlord under the terms of this Lease.

8.4 Tenant’s Property Insurance. Subject to the requirements of Paragraph 8.5, Tenant at its cost shall either by separate policy or, at Landlord’s option, by endorsement to a policy already carried, maintain insurance coverage on all of Tenant’s personal property, Trade Fixtures and Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations in, on, or about the Premises similar in coverage to that carried by Landlord as the Insuring Party under Paragraph 8.3(a). Such insurance shall be full replacement cost coverage with a deductible not to exceed $1,000 per occurrence. The proceeds from any such insurance shall be used by Tenant for the replacement of personal property and the restoration of Trade Fixtures and Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations. Upon request from Landlord, Tenant shall provide Landlord with written evidence that such insurance is in force.

8.5 Insurance Policies. Insurance required hereunder shall be in companies duly licensed to transact business in the state where the Premises are located, and maintaining during the policy term a “General Policyholders Rating” of at least A-VII, or such other rating as may be required by a Lender, as set forth in the most current issue of “Best’s Insurance Guide.” Tenant shall not do or permit to be done anything which shall invalidate the insurance policies referred to in this Paragraph 8. Tenant shall cause to be delivered to Landlord, within seven (7) days after the earlier of the Early Possession Date or the Commencement Date, certified copies of, or certificates evidencing the existence and amounts of, the insurance required under Paragraph 8.2(a) and 8.4. No such policy shall be cancelable or subject to modification except after thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord. Tenant shall at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of such policies, furnish Landlord with evidence of renewals or “insurance binders” evidencing renewal thereof, or Landlord may order such insurance and charge the cost thereof to Tenant, which amount shall be payable by Tenant to Landlord upon demand.

8.6 Waiver of Subrogation. Without affecting any other rights or remedies, Tenant and Landlord each hereby release and relieve the other, and waive their entire right to recover damages (whether in contract or in tort) against the other, for loss or damage to their property arising out of or incident to the perils required to be insured against under Paragraph 8. The effect of such releases and waivers of the right to recover damages shall not be limited by the amount of insurance carried or required, or by any deductibles applicable thereto. Landlord and Tenant agree to have their respective insurance companies issuing property damage insurance waive any right to subrogation that such companies may have against Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, so long as the insurance is not invalidated thereby.

8.7 Indemnity. Tenant, shall, during the term of this lease, indemnify and save harmless Landlord and any agents of Landlord from any and all loss, damage, claims of damage, obligations, cause or causes of action, or liabilities of any kind or nature (including reasonable costs of attorney’s fees if Landlord is made a party to any action which Tenant’s indemnity runs hereunder) by reason of injury or death of any person or persons or damage to any property of any kind and to whomsoever belonging, including injury or death to the person or damage to the property of Tenant, Tenant’s officers, directors, employees, agents, guests, subtenants and assignees, concessionaires and licensees, and any other person, firm or corporation selling or manufacturing merchandise or services upon or from the demised premises, or any part thereof, from any cause or cause whatsoever which result from Tenant’s use or from any other activity done, permitted or suffered by Tenant. As a material part of the consideration to Landlord, Tenant hereby assumes all risk of damage to property or injury to persons in or about the Premises from any cause whatsoever (except that which is cause by the sole active negligence or willful misconduct by Landlord or its Agents or by the failure of Landlord to observe any of the terms and conditions of this lease, if such failure has persisted for an unreasonable period after written notice of such failure). . Tenant’s obligations under this paragraph shall survive the termination of this lease.

8.8 Exemption of Landlord from Liability. Except to the extend applicable to Landlord’s negligence or willful misconduct, Landlord shall not be liable for injury or damage which may be sustained by Tenant or to the person or goods, wares, merchandise or other property of Tenant, Tenant’s employees, contractors, invitees, customers, or any other person in or about the Premises, whether such damage or injury is caused by or results from fire, earthquake, steam, electricity, gas, water or rain, which may leak or from or into any part of the premises or from the breakage, leakage, obstruction or other defects of pipes, fire sprinklers, wires, appliances, plumbing, HVAC or lighting fixtures, or from any other cause, whether said injury or damage results from conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other portions of the Building of which the Premises are a part, from other sources or places, and

regardless of whether the cause of such damage or injury or the means of preparing the same is accessible or not, except for damages caused by negligent or intentional acts of Landlord, and/or Landlord’s employees, contractors, agents, officers, directors, or any other person in or about the Premises on behalf of the Landlord. Landlord shall not be liable for any damages arising from any act or neglect of any other tenant of Landlord nor from the failure by Landlord to enforce the provisions of any other lease in the Industrial Center. Notwithstanding Landlord’s negligence or breach of this Lease, Landlord shall under no circumstances be liable for injury to Tenant’s business or for any loss of income or profit therefrom.

9. Damage or Destruction.

9.1 Definitions.

(a) “Premises Partial Damage” shall mean damage or destruction to the Premises, other than Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations, the repair cost of which damage or destruction is less than fifty percent (50%) of the then Replacement Cost (as defined in Paragraph 9.1(d) of the Premises (excluding the Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations and Trade Fixtures) immediately prior to such damage or destruction.

(b) “Premises Total Destruction” shall mean damage or destruction to the Premises, other than Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations, the repair cost of which damage or destruction is fifty percent (50%) or more of the then Replacement Cost of the Premises (excluding Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations and Trade Fixtures) immediately prior to such damage or destruction. In addition, damage or destruction to the Building, other than Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations and Trade Fixtures of any tenants of the Building, the cost of which damage or destruction is fifty percent (50%) or more of the then Replacement Cost (excluding Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations and Trade Fixtures of any Tenants of the Building) of the Building shall, at the option of Landlord, be deemed to be Premises total Destruction.

(c) “Industrial Center Total Destruction” shall mean damage or destruction to the Industrial Center or the Building in which the premises are located, regardless of the damage to the premises. The cost of which damage or destruction is fifty percent (50%) or more of the then Replacement Cost of the Industrial Center or the Building (excluding Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations and Trade Fixtures) immediately prior to such damage or destruction.

(c) “Insured Loss” shall mean damage or destruction to the Premises, other than Tenant-Owned Alterations and Utility Installations and Trade Fixtures, which was caused by an event required to be covered by the insurance described in Paragraph 8.3(a) irrespective of any deductible amounts or coverage limits involved.

In the event, however, that there is a shortage of insurance proceeds and such shortage is due to any reason including the fact that some but not all of which may include the fact that, by reason of the unique nature of the improvements in the Premises, full replacement cost insurance coverage was not commercially reasonable and available, then Landlord shall have no obligation to pay for the shortage in insurance proceeds or to fully restore the unique aspects of the Premises unless Tenant provides Landlord with the funds to cover same, or adequate assurance thereof, within ten (10) days following receipt of written notice of such shortage and request therefor. If Landlord receives said funds or adequate assurance thereof within said ten (10) day period, Landlord shall complete them as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect. If Landlord does not receive such funds or assurance within said period, Landlord may nevertheless elect by written notice to Tenant within ten (10) days thereafter to make such restoration and repair as is commercially reasonable with Landlord paying any shortage in proceeds, in which case this Lease shall remain in full force and effect. If Landlord does not receive such funds or assurance within such ten (10) day period, and if Landlord does not so elect to restore and repair, then this Lease shall terminate sixty (60) days following the occurrence of the damage or destruction.

In the event Landlord elects to give such notice of Landlord’s intention to terminate this Lease, Tenant shall have the right within ten (10) days after receipt of such notice to give written notice to Landlord of Tenant’s commitment to pay for the excess costs of (a) investigation and remediation of such Hazardous Substance Condition to the extent required by Applicable Requirements, over (B) an amount equal to twelve (12) times the then monthly Base Rent or $50,000 whichever is greater. Tenant shall provide Landlord with the funds required of Tenant or satisfactory assurance thereof within thirty (30) days following said commitment by Tenant. In such event this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, and Landlord shall proceed to make such investigation and remediation as soon as reasonably possible after the required funds are available.

(a) Tenant shall not assign this lease, nor any right hereunder, nor sublet the premises, nor any part thereof, without the prior written consent of Landlord. Use of office and/or conference rooms of premise by Tenant’s investors, customers, business partners or board members will not be deemed as subletting. In exercising its reasonable discretion Landlord may consider all commercially relevant factors involved in the leasing of the premises including but not limited to the a) the creditworthiness and financial stability of the prospective assignee or subtenant; b) references of prior landlords; c) the past history of such subtenant, with respect to involvement in litigation and bankruptcy proceedings; d) the impact of said subtenant or assignee and proposed use of the premises on pedestrian and vehicular traffic, other tenants, and parking; e) the use, generation or disposal of hazardous materials. The presence of one negative factor enumerated above shall be deemed reasonable justification for Landlord’s withholding consent.

(b) A change in the control of Tenant shall constitute an assignment requiring Landlord’s consent. The transfer, on a cumulative basis, of twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the voting control of Tenant shall constitute a change in control for this purpose. For purpose of this paragraph, neither the private placement offering or public offering of tenant’s securities, nor the assignment of this lease to an Affiliate of Tenant shall be included in determining if a change of control requiring landlord’s consent has occurred. An “Affiliate” of Tenant is an entity, which controls Tenant, purchases all or substantially all of its assets, or results from a merger or consolidation with Tenant.

(c) Notwithstanding anything herein contained to the contrary, the involvement of Tenant or its assets in any transaction, or series of transactions (by way of merger, sale, acquisition, financing, refinancing,

transfer, leveraged buy-out or otherwise), whether or not a formal assignment or hypothecation of this Lease or Tenant’s assets occurs, which results or will result in a reduction of the Net Worth of Tenant, as hereinafter defined, by an amount equal to or greater than twenty-five percent (25%) of such Net Worth of Tenant as it was represented to Landlord at the time of full execution and delivery of this Lease or at the time of the most recent assignment to which Landlord has consented, or as it exists immediately prior to said transaction or transactions constituting such reduction, at whichever time said Net Worth of Tenant was or is greater, shall be considered an assignment of this Lease by Tenant to which Landlord may reasonably withhold its consent. “Net Worth of Tenant” for purposes of this Lease shall be the net worth of Tenant (excluding any Guarantors) established under generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied.

(d) An assignment or subletting of Tenant’s interest in this Lease without Landlord’s specific prior written consent shall, at Landlord’s option, be a Default curable after notice per Paragraph 13.1, or a non-curable Breach without the necessity of any notice and grace period. If Landlord elects to treat such unconsented to assignment or subletting as a non-curable Breach, Landlord shall have the right to either: (i) terminate this Lease, or (ii) upon thirty (30) days’ written notice (“Landlord’s Notice”), increase the monthly Base Rent for the Premises to the greater of the then fair market rental value of the Premises, as reasonably determined by Landlord, or one hundred ten percent (110%) of the Base Rent then in effect. Pending determination of the new fair market rental value, if disputed by Tenant, Tenant shall pay the amount set forth in Landlord’s Notice, with any overpayment credited against the next installment(s) of Base Rent coming due, and any underpayment for the period retroactively to the effective date of the adjustment being due and payable immediately upon the determination thereof. Further, in the event of such Breach and rental adjustment, (i) the purchase price of any option to purchase the Premises held by Tenant shall be subject to similar adjustment to the then fair market value as reasonably determined by Landlord (without the Lease being considered an encumbrance or any deduction for depreciation or obsolescence, and considering the Premises at its highest and best use and in good condition) or one hundred ten percent (110%) of the price previously in effect, (ii) any index-oriented rental or price adjustment formulas contained in this Lease shall be adjusted to require that the base index be determined with reference to the index applicable to the time of such adjustment, and (iii) any fixed rental adjustments scheduled during the remainder of the Lease term shall be increased in the same ratio as the new rental bears to the Base Rent in effect immediately prior to the adjustment specified in Landlord’s Notice.

(e) Tenant’s remedy for any breach of this Paragraph 12.1 by Landlord shall be limited to compensatory damages and/or injunctive relief.

12.2 Terms and Conditions Applicable to Assignment and Subletting.

(a) Regardless of Landlord’s consent, any assignment or subletting shall not (i) be effective without the express written assumption by such assignee or subtenant of the obligations of Tenant under this Lease, (ii) release Tenant of any obligations hereunder, nor (iii) alter the primary liability of Tenant for the payment of Base Rent and other sums due Landlord hereunder or for the performance of any other obligations to be performed by Tenant under this Lease.

(b) Landlord may accept any rent or performance of Tenant’s obligations from any person other than Tenant pending approval or disapproval of an assignment. Neither a delay in the approval or disapproval of such assignment nor the acceptance of any rent for performance shall constitute a waiver or estoppel of Landlord’s right to exercise its remedies for the Default or Breach by Tenant of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Lease.

(c) The consent of Landlord to any assignment or subletting shall not constitute a consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting by Tenant or to any subsequent or successive assignment or subletting by the assignee or subtenant. However, Landlord may consent to subsequent or successive assignment or subletting by the assignee or subtenant. However, Landlord may consent to subsequent sublettings and assignments of the sublease or any amendments or modifications thereto without notifying Tenant or anyone else liable under this Lease or the sublease and without obtaining their consent, and such action shall not relieve such persons from liability under this Lease or the sublease.

(d) In the event of any Default or Breach of Tenant’s obligation under this Lease, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant, any guarantors or anyone else responsible for the performance of the Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, including any subtenant, without first exhausting Landlord’s remedies against any other person or entity responsible therefor to Landlord, or any security held by Landlord.

(e) Each request for consent to an assignment or subletting shall be in writing, accompanied by information relevant to Landlord’s determination as to the financial and operational responsibility and appropriateness of the proposed assignee or subtenant, including but not limited to the intended use and/or required modification of the Premises, if any, together with a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 or ten percent (10%) of the monthly Base Rent applicable to the portion of the Premises which is the subject of the proposed assignment or sublease, whichever is greater, as reasonable consideration for Landlord’s considering and processing the request for consent. Tenant agrees to provide Landlord with such other or additional information and/or documentation as may be reasonably requested by Landlord.

(f) Any assignee of, or subtenant under, this Lease shall, by reason of accepting such assignment or entering into such sublease, be deemed, for the benefit of Landlord, to have assumed and agreed to conform and comply with each and every term, covenant, condition and obligation herein to be observed or performed by Tenant during the term of said assignment or sublease, other than such obligations as are contrary to or inconsistent with provisions of an assignment or sublease to which Landlord has specifically consented in writing.

Eight-L 1993 —13— Initials        /        


(g) If Tenant desires to Sublet or Assign the premises prior to the expiration of the term of the lease and obtains an acceptable subtenant or assignee, then the Landlord shall have the option prior to the execution of the sublease or assignment agreement to cancel this lease. Landlord, in Landlord’s sole discretion, may then enter into a new lease with any prospective subtenant as the substitute Tenant. If Landlord exercises this option, then this present lease shall be terminated by mutual agreement as of that time. The original Tenant agrees to pay all leasing commissions for the new lease payable to third party brokers according to their standard schedules of lease commissions for that period of time applicable to the remaining period of this lease at the present rental rate. Landlord shall pay all additional commissions for periods of time extending beyond this original lease.

(h) The occurrence of a transaction described in Paragraph 12.2(c) shall give Landlord the right (but not the obligation) to require that the Security Deposit be increased by an amount equal to six (6) times the then monthly Base Rent, and Landlord may make the actual receipt by Landlord of the Security Deposit increase a condition to Landlord’s consent to such transaction.

(i)

12.3 Additional Terms and Conditions Applicable to Assignment and Subletting. The following terms and conditions shall apply to any subletting or assignment by Tenant of all or any part of the Premises and shall be deemed included in all subleases and assignments under this Lease whether or not expressly incorporated therein:

(a) Tenant hereby assigns and transfers to Landlord all of Tenant’s interest in all rentals, income or other consideration arising from any sublease or assignment of all or a portion of the Premises heretofore or hereafter made by Tenant, and Landlord may collect such sums and apply same toward Tenant’s obligations under this Lease. Landlord shall not, by reason of the foregoing provision or any other assignment of such sublease to Landlord, nor by reason of the collection of the rents from a subtenant, be deemed liable to the subtenant for any failure of Tenant to perform and comply with any of Tenant’s obligations to such subtenant under such Sublease. Tenant hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs any such subtenant, upon receipt of a written notice from Landlord, to pay to Landlord the rents and other charges due and to become due under the sublease. Subtenant shall rely upon any such statement and request from Landlord and shall pay such rents and other charges to Landlord without any obligation or right to inquire as to whether any Breach exists and notwithstanding any notice from or claim from Tenant to the contrary. Tenant shall have no right or claim against such subtenant, or, until the Breach has been cured, against Landlord, for any such rents and other charges so paid by said subtenant to Landlord.

(b) In the event of a Breach by Tenant in the performance of its obligations under this Lease, Landlord, at its option and without any obligation to do so, may require any subtenant to attorn to Landlord, in which event Landlord shall undertake the obligations of the sub landlord under such sublease from the time of the exercise of said option to the expiration of such sublease; provided, however, Landlord shall not be liable for any prepaid rents or security deposit paid by such subtenant to such sub landlord or for any other prior defaults or breaches of such sub landlord under such sublease.

(c) Any matter or thing requiring the consent of the sub landlord under a sublease shall also require the consent of Landlord herein.

(d) No subtenant under a sublease or assignee approved by Landlord shall further assign or sublet all or any part of the Premises without Landlord’s prior written consent.

(e) Landlord shall deliver a copy of any notice of Default or Breach by Tenant to the subtenant, who shall have the right to cure the Default of Tenant within the grace period, if any, specified in such notice. The subtenant shall have a right of reimbursement and offset from and against Tenant for any such Defaults cured by the subtenant.

13. Default; Breach; Remedies.

13.1 Default; Breach. Landlord and Tenant agree that if any attorney is consulted by Landlord in connection with a Tenant Default or Breach (as hereinafter defined), $350.00 is a reasonable minimum sum per such occurrence for legal services and costs in the preparation and service of a notice of Default, and that Landlord may include the cost of such services and costs in said notice as rent due and payable to cure said default. a “Default” by Tenant is defined as a failure by Tenant to observe, comply with or perform any of the terms, covenants, conditions or rules applicable to Tenant under this Lease. A “Breach” by Tenant is defined as the occurrence of any one or more of the following Defaults, and, where a grace period for cure after notice is specified herein, the failure by Tenant to cure such Default prior to the expiration of the applicable grace period, and shall entitle Landlord to pursue the remedies set forth in Paragraphs 13.2 and/or 13.3.

(a) The vacating of the Premises, or the abandonment of the Premises.

(b) Except as expressly otherwise provided in this Lease, the failure by Tenant to make any payment of Base Rent, Tenant’s Share of Common Area Operating Expenses, or any other monetary payment required to be made by Tenant hereunder[within five (5) business days after receipt of Landlord’s written notice that such amount is due], the failure by Tenant to provide Landlord with reasonable evidence of insurance or surety bond required under this Lease [within five (5) business days after receipt of Landlord’s written request therefore], or the failure of Tenant to fulfill any obligation under this Lease which endangers or threatens life or property, where such failure continues for a period of three (3) days following written notice thereof by or on behalf of Landlord to Tenant.

 

MULTI-TENANT - MODIFIED NET
Eight-L 1993 —14— Initials        /        


(c) Except as expressly otherwise provided in this Lease, the failure by Tenant to provide Landlord with reasonable written evidence (in duly executed original form, if applicable) of (i) compliance with Applicable Requirements per Paragraph 6.3, [within five (5) business days after receipt of written notice to provide such evidence (iii) the rescission of an unauthorized assignment or subletting per Paragraph 12.1, (iv) a Tenancy Statement per Paragraphs 16 or 37, (v) the subordination or non-subordination of this Lease per Paragraph 30, (vi) the guaranty of the performance of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease if required under Paragraphs 1.11 and 37, (vii) the execution of any document requested under Paragraph 42 (easements), or (viii) any other documentation or information which Landlord may reasonably require of Tenant under the terms of this lease, where any such failure continues for a period of ten (10) business days following written notice by or on behalf of Landlord to Tenant.

(d) A Default by Tenant as to the terms covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease, or of the rules adopted under Paragraph 40 hereof that are to be observed, complied with or performed by Tenant, other than those described in Subparagraphs 13.1(a), (b), or (c), above, where such Default continues for a period of thirty (30) days after written notice thereof by or on behalf of Landlord to Tenant; provided however, that if the nature of Tenant’s Default is such that more than thirty (30) business days are reasonably required for its cure, then it shall not be deemed to be a Breach of this Lease by Tenant if Tenant commences such cure within said thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion.

(e) The occurrence of any of the following events: (i) the making by Tenant of any general arrangement or assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) Tenant’s becoming a “debtor” as defined in 11 U.S. Code Section 101 or any successor statute thereto (unless, in the case of a petition filed against Tenant, the same is dismissed within sixty (60) days); (iii) the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of substantially all of Tenant’s assets located at the Premises or of Tenant’s interest in this Lease, where possession is not restored to Tenant within thirty (30) days; or (iv) the attachment, execution or other judicial seizure of substantially all of Tenant’s assets located at the Premises or of Tenant’s interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within thirty (30) days; provided, however, in the event that any provision of this Subparagraph 13.1(e) is contrary to any applicable law, such provision shall be of no force or effect, and shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.

(f) The discovery by Landlord that any financial statement of Tenant or of any Guarantor, given to Landlord by Tenant or any Guarantor, was materially false.

(g) If the performance of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease is guaranteed: (i) the death of a Guarantor, (ii) the termination of a Guarantor’s liability with respect to this Lease other than in accordance with the terms of such guaranty, (iii) a Guarantor’s becoming insolvent or the subject of a bankruptcy filing, (iv) a Guarantor’s refusal to honor the guaranty, or (v) a Guarantor’s breach of its guaranty obligation on an anticipatory breach basis, and Tenant’s failure, within sixty (60) days following written notice by or on behalf of Landlord to Tenant of any such event, to provide Landlord with written alternative assurances of security, which, when coupled with the then existing resources of Tenant, equals or exceeds the combined financial resources of Tenant and the Guarantors that existed at the time of the execution of this Lease.

13.2 Remedies. If Tenant fails to perform any affirmative duty or obligation of Tenant under this Lease, within thirty (30)days after written notice to Tenant (or in case of an emergency, without notice), Landlord may at its option (but without obligation to do so), perform such duty or obligation on Tenant’s behalf, including but not limited to the obtaining of reasonably required bonds, insurance policies, or governmental licenses, permits or approvals. The costs and expenses of any such performance by Landlord shall be due and payable by Tenant to Landlord upon invoice therefor. If any check given to Landlord by Tenant shall not be honored by the bank upon which it is drawn, Landlord, at its own option, may require all future payments to be made under this Lease by Tenant to be made only by cashier’s check. In the event of a Breach of this Lease by Tenant (as defined in Paragraph 13.1), with or without further notice or demand, and without limiting Landlord in the exercise of any right or remedy which Landlord may have by reason of such Breach, Landlord may:

(a) Terminate Tenant’s right to possession of the Premises by any lawful means, in which case this Lease and the term hereof shall terminate and Tenant shall immediately surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord. In such event Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant: (i) the worth at the time of the award of the unpaid rent which had been earned at the time of termination; (ii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that the Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; (iii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that the Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; and (iv) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by the Tenant’s failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom, including but not limited to the cost of recovering possession of the Premises, expenses of reletting, including necessary renovation and alteration of the Premises, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and that portion of any leasing commission paid by Landlord in connection with this Lease applicable to the unexpired term of this Lease. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in provision (iii) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco or the Federal Reserve Bank District in which the Premises are located at the time of award plus one percent (1%). Efforts by Landlord to mitigate damages caused by Tenant’s Default or Breach of this Lease shall not waive Landlord’s right to recover damages under this Paragraph 13.2. If termination of this Lease is obtained through the provisional remedy of unlawful detainer, Landlord shall have the right to recover in such proceeding the unpaid rent and damages as are recoverable therein, or Landlord may reserve the right to recover all or any part thereof in a separate suit for such rent and/or damages. If a notice and grace period required under Subparagraph 13.1 (b), (c) or (d) was not previously given, a notice to pay rent or quit, or to perform or quit, as the case may be, given to Tenant under any statute authorizing the forfeiture of leases for

 

MULTI-TENANT - MODIFIED NET
Eight-L 1993 —15— Initials        /        


unlawful detainer shall also constitute the applicable notice for grace period purposes required by Subparagraph 13.1 (b), (c) or (d). In such case, the applicable grace period under the unlawful detainer statue shall run concurrently after the one such statutory notice, and the failure of Tenant to cure the Default within the greater of the two (2) such grace periods shall constitute both an unlawful detainer and a Breach of this Lease entitling Landlord to the remedies provided for in this Lease and/or by said statute.

(b) Continue the Lease and Tenant’s right to possession in effect (in California under California Civil Code Section 1951.4) after Tenant’s Breach and recover the rent as it becomes due, provided Tenant has the right to sublet or assign, subject only to reasonably limitations. Landlord and Tenant agree that the limitations on assignment and subletting in this Lease are reasonable. Acts of maintenance or preservation, efforts to relet the Premises, or the appointment of a receiver to protect the Landlord’s interest under this Lease, shall not constitute a termination of the Tenant’s right to possession.

(c) Pursue any other remedy now or hereafter available to Landlord under the laws or judicial decisions of the state wherein the Premises are located.

(d) The expiration or termination of this Lease and/or the termination of Tenant’s right to possession shall not relieve Tenant from liability under any indemnity provisions of this Lease as to matters occurring or accruing during the term hereof or by reason of Tenant’s occupancy of the Premises.

13.3 Inducement Recapture in Event of Breach. Any agreement by Landlord for free or abated rent or other charges applicable to the Premises, or for the giving or paying by Landlord to or for Tenant of any cash or other bonus, inducement or consideration for Tenant’s entering into this Lease, all of which concessions are hereinafter referred to as “Inducement Provisions” shall be deemed conditioned upon Tenant’s full and faithful performance of all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease to be performed or observed by Tenant, any such Inducement Provision shall automatically be deemed deleted from this Lease and of no further force or effect, and any rent, other charge, bonus, inducement or consideration theretofore abated, given or paid by Landlord under such an Inducement Provision shall be immediately due and payable by Tenant to Landlord, and recoverable by Landlord, as additional rent due under this Lease, notwithstanding any subsequent cure of said Breach by Tenant. The acceptance by Landlord of rent or the cure of the Breach which initiated the operation of this Paragraph 13.3 shall not be deemed a waiver by Landlord of the provisions of this Paragraph 13.3 unless specifically so stated in writing by Landlord at the time of such acceptance.

13.4 Late Charges. Tenant hereby acknowledges that late payment by Tenant to Landlord of rent and other sums due hereunder will cause Landlord to incur costs not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain. Such costs include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges, and late charges which may be imposed upon Landlord by the terms of any ground lease, mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises. Accordingly, if any installment of rent or other sum due from Tenant shall not be received by Landlord or Landlord’s designee within five (5) days after such amount shall be due, then, without any requirement for notice to Tenant, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late charge equal to ten percent (10%) of such overdue amount. The parties hereby agree that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs Landlord will incur by reason of late payment by Tenant. Acceptance of such late charge be Landlord shall in no event constitute a waiver of Tenant’s Default or Breach with respect to such overdue amount, nor prevent Landlord from exercising any of the other rights and remedies granted hereunder. In the event that a late charge is payable hereunder, whether or not collected, for three (3) consecutive installments of Base Rent, then notwithstanding Paragraph 4.1 or any other provision of this Lease to the contrary, Base Rent shall, at Landlord’s option, become due and payable quarterly in advance.

13.5 Breach by Landlord. Landlord shall not be deemed in breach of this Lease unless Landlord fails within a reasonable time to perform an obligation required to be performed by Landlord. For purposes of this Paragraph 13.5, a reasonable time shall in no event be less than thirty (30) days after receipt by Landlord, and by any Lender(s) whose name and address shall have been furnished to Tenant in writing for such purpose, of written notice specifying wherein such obligation of Landlord has not been performed; provided, however, that if the nature of Landlord’s obligation is such that more than thirty (30) days after such notice are reasonably required for its performance, then Landlord shall not be in breach of this Lease if performance is commenced within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently pursued to completion.

14. Condemnation. If the Premises or any portion thereof are taken under the power of eminent domain or sold under the threat of the exercise of said power (all of which are herein called “condemnation”), this Lease shall terminate as to the part so taken as of the date the condemning authority takes title or possession, whichever first occurs. If more than twenty five percent (25%) of the floor area of the Premises, or more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the portion of the Common Areas designated for Tenant’s parking, is taken by condemnation, Tenant may, at Tenant’s option, to be exercised in writing within ten (10) days after Landlord shall have given Tenant written notice of such taking (or in the absence of such notice, within ten (10) days after the condemning authority shall have taken possession) terminate this Lease as of the date the condemning authority takes such possession. If Tenant does not terminate this Lease in accordance with the foregoing, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect as to the portion of the Premises remaining, except that the Base Rent shall be reduced in the same proportion as the rentable floor area of the Premises taken bears to the total rentable floor area of the Premises. No reduction of the Base Rent shall occur if the condemnation does not apply to any portion of the Premises. Any award for the taking of all or any part of the Premises under the power of eminent domain or any payment made under threat of the exercise of such power shall be the property of Landlord, whether such award shall be made as compensation for diminution of value of the leasehold or for the taking of the fee, or as severance damages; provided, however, that Tenant shall be entitled to any compensation, separately awarded to Tenant for Tenant’s relocation expenses and/or loss of Tenant’s Trade Fixtures. In the event that this Lease is not terminated by reason of such condemnation, Landlord shall to the extent

of its net severance damages received, over and above Tenant’s Share of the legal and other expenses incurred by Landlord in the condemnation matter, repair any damage to the Premises caused by such condemnation authority. Tenant shall be responsible for the payment of any amount in excess of such net severance damages required to complete such repair.

15. Broker’s Fees.

15.1 Procuring Cause. The Broker(s) named in Paragraph 1.10 is/are the procuring cause of this Lease.

15.2 Additional Terms. Unless Landlord and Broker(s) have otherwise agreed in writing, Landlord agrees that: (a) if Tenant exercises any Option (as defined in Paragraph 39.1) granted under this Lease or any Option subsequently granted, or (b) if Tenant acquires any rights to the Premises or other premises in which Landlord has an interest, or (c) if Tenant remains in possession of the Premises with the consent of Landlord after the expiration of the term of this Lease after having failed to exercise an Option, or (d) if said Brokers are the procuring cause of any other lease or sale entered into between the Parties pertaining to the Premises and/or any adjacent property in which Landlord has an interest, or (e) if Base Rent is increased, whether by agreement or operation of an escalation clause herein, then as to any of said transactions, Landlord shall not be liable to said Broker(s) to pay a fee.

15.3 Assumption of Obligations. Any buyer or transferee of Landlord’s interest in this Lease, whether such transfer is by agreement or by operation of law, shall be deemed to have assumed Landlord’s obligation under this Paragraph 15.

15.4 Representations and Warranties. Tenant and Landlord each represent and warrant to the other that it has had no dealings with any person, firm, broker or finder other than as named in Paragraph 1.10(a) in connection with the negotiation of this Lease and/or the consummation of the transaction contemplated hereby, and that no broker or other person, firm or entity other than said named Broker(s) is entitled to any commission or finder’s fee in connection with said transaction. Tenant and Landlord do each hereby agree to indemnify, protect, defend and hold the other harmless from and against liability for compensation or charges which may be claimed by any such unnamed broker, finder or other similar party by reason of any dealings or actions of the indemnifying Party, including any costs, expenses, and/or attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred with respect thereto.

16. Tenancy and Financial Statements.

16.1 Tenancy Statement. Each Party (as “Responding Party”) shall within ten (10) days after written notice from the other Party (the “Requesting Party”) execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Requesting Party a statement in writing in a form similar to the then most current “Tenancy Statement” form published by the American Industrial Real Estate Association, plus such additional information, confirmation and/or statements as may be reasonably requested by the Requesting Party.

16.2 Financial Statement. If Landlord desires to finance, refinance, or sell the Premises or the Building, or any part thereof, Tenant and all the Guarantors shall deliver to any potential lender or purchaser designated by Landlord such financial statements of Tenant and such Guarantors as may be reasonably required by such lender or purchaser, including but not limited to Tenant’s financial statements for the past three (3) years. All such financial statements shall be received by Landlord and such lender or purchaser in confidence and shall be used only for the purposes herein set forth.

17. Landlord’s Liability. The term “Landlord” as used herein shall mean the owner or owners at the time in question of the fee title to the Premises. In the event of a transfer of Landlord’s title or interest in the Premises or in this Lease, Landlord shall deliver to the transferee or assignee (in cash or by credit) any unused Security Deposit held by Landlord at the time of such transfer or assignment. Except as provided in Paragraph 15.3, upon such transfer or assignment and delivery of the Security Deposit, as aforesaid, the prior Landlord shall be relieved of all liability with respect to the obligations and/or covenants under this Lease thereafter to be performed by Landlord. Subject to the foregoing, the obligations and/or covenants in this Lease to be performed by the Landlord shall be binding only upon the Landlord as herein above defined. Notwithstanding any other terms or provisions of this lease, Tenant agrees that in the event of any default or breach by Landlord with respect to any of the terms of the Lease to be observed and performed by Landlord (a) Tenant shall look solely to the estate and property (which is the subject of this lease) of Landlord or any successor in interest in the property and the Building, for the satisfaction of Tenant’s remedies for the collection of a judgment (or other judicial process) requiring the payment of money by Landlord; (b) no other property or assets of Landlord, its partners, members, shareholders, officers or any successor in interest shall be subject to levy, execution or other enforcement procedure for the satisfaction if Tenant’s remedies;(c) no personal liability shall at any time be asserted or enforceable against Landlord, it’s partner’s, members or successors in interest (except to the extent permitted in (a) above), and no judgment will be taken against any partner, member, shareholder, officer or director of Landlord. The provisions of this section shall apply only to the Landlord and the parties herein described, and shall not be for the benefit of any insurer nor any other third party.

18. Severability. The invalidity of any provision of this Lease, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, shall in no way affect the validity of any other provision hereof.

19. Interest on Past-Due Obligations. Any monetary payment due Landlord hereunder, other than late charges, not received by Landlord within ten (10) days following the date on which it was due, shall bear interest from the date due at the prime rate charged by the largest state chartered bank in the state in which the Premises are located plus four percent (4%) per annum, but not exceeding the maximum rate allowed by law, in addition to the potential late charge provided for in Paragraph 13.4.

20. Time of Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to the performance of all obligations to be performed or observed by the Parties under this Lease.

21. Rent Defined. All monetary obligations of Tenant to Landlord under the terms of this Lease are deemed to be rent.

22. No Prior or other Agreements; Broker Disclaimer. This Lease contains all agreements between the Parties with respect to any matter mentioned herein, and no other prior or contemporaneous agreement or understanding shall be effective. Landlord and Tenant each represents and warrants to the Brokers that it has made, and is relying solely upon, its own investigation as to the nature, quality, character and financial responsibility of the other Party to this Lease and as to the nature, quality and character of the Premises. Brokers have no responsibility with respect thereto or with respect to any default or breach hereof by either Party. Each Broker shall be an intended third party beneficiary of the provisions of this Paragraph 22.

23. Notices.

23.1 Notice Requirements. All notices required or permitted by this Lease shall be in writing and may be delivered in person (by hand or by messenger or courier service) or may be sent by regular, certified or registered mail or U.S. Postal Service Express Mail, with postage prepaid, or by facsimile transmission during normal business hours, and shall be deemed sufficiently given if served in a manner specified in this Paragraph 23. The addresses noted adjacent to a Party’s signature on this Lease shall be that Party’s address for delivery or mailing of notice purposes. Either Party may by written notice to the other specify a different address for notice purposes, except that upon Tenant’s taking possession of the Premises, the Premises shall constitute Tenant’s address for the purpose of mailing or delivering notices to Tenant. A copy of all notices required or permitted to be given to Landlord hereunder shall be concurrently transmitted to such party or parties at such addresses as Landlord may from time to time hereafter designate by written notice to Tenant.

Any payment given Landlord by Tenant may be accepted by Landlord on account of moneys or damages due Landlord, notwithstanding any qualifying statements or conditions made by Tenant in connection therewith, which such statements and/or conditions shall be of no force or effect whatsoever unless specifically agreed to in writing by Landlord at or before the time of deposit of such payment.

28. Covenants and Conditions. All provisions of this Lease to be observed or performed by Tenant are both covenants and conditions.

30. Subordination; Attornment; Non-Disturbance.

30.1 Subordination. This Lease and any Option granted hereby shall be subject and subordinate to any ground lease, mortgage, deed of trust, or other hypothecation or security device (collectively, “Security Device”), now or hereafter placed by Landlord upon the real property of which the Premises are a part, to any and all advances made on the security thereof, and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof. Tenant agrees that the Lenders holding any such Security Device shall have no duty, liability or obligation to perform any of the obligations of Landlord under this Lease, but that in the event of Landlord’s default with respect to any such obligation, Tenant will give any Lender whose name and address have been furnished Tenant in writing for such purpose notice of Landlord’s default pursuant to Paragraph 13.5. If any Lender shall elect to have this Lease and/or any Option granted hereby superior to the lien of its Security Device and shall give written notice thereof to Tenant, this Lease and such Options shall be deemed prior to such Security Device, notwithstanding the relative dates of the documentation or recordation thereof.

30.2 Attornment. Subject to the non-disturbance provisions of Paragraph 30.3, Tenant agrees to attorn to a Lender or any other party who acquires ownership of the Premises by reason of a foreclosure of a Security Device, and that in the event of such foreclosure, such new owner shall not: (i) be liable for any act or omission of any prior Landlord or with respect to events occurring prior to acquisition of ownership, (ii) be subject to any offsets or defenses which Tenant might have against any prior Landlord, or (iii) be bound by prepayment of more than one month’s rent.

30.3 Non-Disturbance. With respect to Security Devices entered into by Landlord after the execution of this lease, Tenant’s subordination of this Lease shall be subject to receiving assurance (a “non-disturbance agreement”) from the Lender that Tenant’s possession and this Lease, including any options to extend the term hereof, will not be disturbed so long as Tenant is not in Breach hereof and attorns to the record owner of the Premises.

30.4 Self-Executing. The agreements contained in this Paragraph 30 shall be effective without the execution of any further documents; provided, however, that upon written request from Landlord or a Lender in connection with a sale, financing or refinancing of Premises, Tenant and Landlord shall execute such further writings as may be reasonably required to separately document any such subordination or non-subordination, attornment and/or non-disturbance agreement as is provided for herein.

31. Attorneys’ Fees. If any Party brings an action or proceeding to enforce the terms hereof or declare rights hereunder, the Prevailing Party (as hereafter defined) in any such proceeding, action, or appeal thereon, shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses. Such fees may be awarded in the same suit or recovered in a separate suit, whether or not such action or proceeding is pursued to decision or judgment. The term “Prevailing Party” shall include, without limitation, a Party who substantially obtains or defeats the relief sought, as the case may be whether by compromise, settlement, judgment, or the abandonment by the other Party or Broker of its claim or defense. The attorneys’ fee award shall not be computed in accordance with any court fee schedule, but shall be such as to full reimburse all attorneys fees, cost and expenses reasonably incurred. Landlord shall be entitled to attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses incurred in preparation and service of notices of Default and consultations in connection therewith, whether or not a legal action is subsequently commenced in connection with such Default or resulting Breach.

32. Landlord’s Access; Showing Premises; Repairs. Landlord and Landlord’s agents shall have the right to enter the Premises at any time, in the case of an emergency, and otherwise at reasonable times for the purpose of showing the same to prospective purchasers, lenders, or tenants, and make such alterations, repairs, improvements or additions to the Premises or to the Building, as Landlord may reasonably deem necessary. In all other cases except for emergencies, Landlord must take all reasonable efforts to schedule such visits with the Tenant with at least 48 hours notice. Landlord may at any time place on or about the Premises or Building any ordinary “For Sale” signs and Landlord may at any time during the last one hundred eighty (180) days of the term hereof place on or about the Premises any ordinary “For Lease” signs. All such activities of Landlord shall be without abatement of rent or liability to Tenant.

33. Auctions. Tenant shall not conduct, nor permit to be conducted, either voluntarily or involuntarily, any auction upon the Premises without first having obtained Landlord’s prior written consent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Landlord shall not be obligated to exercise any standard of reasonableness in determining whether to grant such consent.

34. Signs. Tenant shall not place any sign upon the exterior of the Premises or the Building, except that Tenant may, with Landlord’s prior written consent, install (but not on the roof) such signs as are reasonably required to advertise Tenant’s own business so long as such signs are in a location designated by Landlord and comply with Applicable Requirements and the signage criteria established for the Industrial Center by Landlord. The installation of any sign on the Premises by or for Tenant shall be subject to the provisions of Paragraph 7 (Maintenance, Repairs, Utility Installations, Trade Fixtures and Alterations). Unless otherwise expressly agreed herein, Landlord 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, which do not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of Tenant’s business; Landlord shall be entitled to all revenues from such advertising signs.

35. Termination; Merger. Unless specifically stated otherwise in writing by Landlord, the voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Tenant, the mutual termination or cancellation hereof, or a termination hereof by Landlord for Breach by Tenant, shall automatically terminate any sublease or lesser estate in the Premises; provided, however, Landlord shall, in the event of any such surrender, termination or cancellation, have the option to continue any one or all of any existing subtenancies. Landlord’s failure within ten (10) days of following any such event to make a written election to the contrary by written notice to the holder of any such lesser interest, shall constitute Landlord’s election to have such event constitute the termination of such interest.

36. Consents.

(a) Except for Paragraph 12 (subleases) and Paragraph 33 (Auctions) or as otherwise provided herein, wherever in this Lease the consent of a Party is required to an act by or for the other Party, such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

In addition to the deposit described in Paragraph 12.2(e), Landlord may, as condition to considering any such request by Tenant, require that Tenant deposit with Landlord an amount of money (in addition to the Security Deposit held under Paragraph 5) reasonably calculated by Landlord to represent the cost Landlord will incur in considering and responding to Tenant’s request. Any unused portion of said deposit shall be refunded to Tenant without interest. Landlord’s consent to any act, assignment of this Lease or subletting of the Premises by Tenant shall not constitute an acknowledgment that no Default or Breach by Tenant of this Lease exists, nor shall such consent be deemed a waiver of any then existing Default or Breach, except as may be otherwise specifically stated in writing by Landlord at the time of such consent.

(b) All conditions to Landlord’s consent authorized by this Lease are acknowledged by Tenant as being reasonable. The failure to specify herein any particular condition to Landlord’s consent shall not preclude the impositions by Landlord at the time of consent of such further or other conditions as are then reasonable with reference to the particular matter for which consent is being given.

If there are to be any Guarantors of this Lease per Paragraph 1.11, the form of the guaranty to be executed by each such Guarantor shall be in the form most recently published by the American Industrial Real Estate Association, and each such Guarantor shall have the same obligations as Tenant under this lease, including but not limited to the obligation to provide the Tenancy Statement and information required in Paragraph 16.
