For each Lease Year and partial Lease Year through the Term, Tenant shall reimburse and pay to Landlord an amount equal to the product of Real Property Taxes paid or payable by Landlord during such Lease Year or partial Lease Year, multiplied by Tenant’s Allocable Share (as hereinafter defined). The amount, charges or assessments required to be paid by Landlord, pursuant to any Payment in Lieu of Tax Agreement or any other agreement which Landlord makes, to such taxing authorities, municipal agencies or other governmental bodies in lieu of taxes, (“PILOT”) entered into in connection with the Center shall be considered for the purposes of this Lease to be included within the definition of Real Property Taxes.

Landlord shall furnish Tenant with a written statement of the actual amount of Tenant’s Allocable Share of Real Property Taxes based upon the tax bills or assessments for each tax fiscal year. If the total amount paid by Tenant under this Section for any tax fiscal year during the term is less than the actual amount due from Tenant for such year as shown on such statement, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the deficiency within thirty (30) days after demand by Landlord therefor. If the total amount paid by Tenant for any year exceeds the amount due from Tenant for such year, Tenant shall be refunded within thirty (30) days. With respect to the tax fiscal year in which this Lease expires, Tenant’s liability for Tenant’s Allocable Share of Real Property Taxes for such year shall be subject to a pro rata adjustment based on the appropriate number of days of said fiscal tax year. A copy of a tax bill or assessment submitted by Landlord to Tenant shall at all time be sufficient evidence of the amount of Real Property Taxes to which such bill relates.

Such amount shall be calculated on the basis of the number of days (from the Term Commencement Date) remaining in each tax fiscal year.

To the extent commercially practicable, Tenant’s insurance policy shall include a waiver

10


 

by the insurer of all rights of subrogation against the landlord, which arises or might arise by reason of any payment under such policy or by reason of any act or omission of landlord.

12.03 Increase in Insurance Premiums

Tenant shall pay on demand any increase in premiums for Landlord’s insurance that are attributable solely to Tenant’s use and occupancy, failure to occupy or abandonment of the demised premises, whether or not Landlord has consented to the same.

ARTICLE 13 Damage by Fire or other Hazard

13.01 Restoration of Premises

(a) The Parties mutually agree that if the Demised Premises are partially or totally destroyed or damaged by fire or otherwise, Landlord (subject to being able to obtain all necessary permits and approvals) shall repair and restore the Demised Premises and Common Areas as soon as is reasonably practicable to substantially the same condition in which the Demised Premises existed before such damage. If, however, the Demised Premises are totally destroyed or so damaged that Landlord cannot reasonably restore or rebuild to substantially the same condition in which the Demised Premises were before such damage within 120 days following the date of loss, Landlord shall not be required to rebuild or restore, and this Lease shall be terminable by Landlord or Tenant serving written notice to the other. In any event, if repairs have not been completed within 120 days following the date of loss, the Lease may be terminated by Tenant serving notice upon Landlord not less than thirty (30) days advance written notice of such election, but in no event may Tenant terminate this Lease after such repairs have been commenced by Landlord.

(b) In the event the Demised Premises are completely or partially destroyed or so damaged by fire or other hazard that the Demised Premises cannot be reasonably used by Tenant, this Lease shall be deemed terminated.

ARTICLE 14 Eminent Domain

14.01 Eminent Domain

If the Demised Premises, or any portion of the Demised Premises or Common Areas so as to render the balance wholly unsuitable for the purpose of Tenant’s occupancy, is taken by condemnation or the right of eminent domain, or by agreement between Landlord and those authorized to exercise such rights (collectively, the “Condemnation Proceedings”), either Party upon written notice to the other shall be entitled to terminate this Lease, provided that such notice is given not later than thirty (30) days after Tenant has been deprived of possession or use by such taking. Should any part of the Demised Premises be so taken and should this Lease not be terminated in accordance with the foregoing provisions, Landlord covenants and agrees promptly after such taking to expend so much as may be necessary of the net amount which may be awarded to and received by it in such condemnation proceedings (the “Condemnation Proceedings Award”), in restoring the Demised Premises to an architectural unit as nearly like its condition prior to such taking as shall in the sole and absolute judgment of Landlord be

11


 

practicable, with an appropriate abatement to be made in Rent, and a corresponding reduction in the Breakpoint. Should the net amount so awarded to and received by Landlord be insufficient to cover the cost of restoring the demised premises as estimated by Landlord’s architect, Landlord may at its election, supply the amount of such insufficiency and restore the Demised Premises, as above provided, or terminate this Lease. When Tenant has not already exercised any right of termination accorded to it under this Section, Landlord shall notify Tenant of Landlord’s election within ninety (90) days after the final determination of the amount of the Condemnation Proceedings Award.

14.02 Landlord Entitled to Award

Out of any award for any taking of the demised premises or any part thereof, Landlord shall be entitled to receive and retain the amounts awarded for the demised premises out of any Condemnation Proceedings Award, except that Tenant shall be entitled to receive and retain only those amounts which may be specifically awarded to it in any Condemnation Proceedings because of the taking of its trade fixtures and its leasehold improvements which have not become a part of the realty, and such business loss as Tenant shall specifically and separately establish, but not otherwise. It is understood in the event of the termination of this Lease as provided herein, Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord or the condemning authority for the value of any unexpired portion of the Term and no right or claim to any part of the Condemnation Proceedings Award. Tenant waives each such claim or right and assigns any such claim or right to any part of all of the Condemnation Proceedings Award to Landlord. Nothing herein shall be deemed to preclude Tenant from making and prosecuting a claim for its leasehold improvement and the value of the unexpired Term of this Lease

Landlord may, at any time and from time to time, relet the Demised Premises, in whole or in part, for any rental then obtainable either in its own name or as agent of Tenant, for a term which, at Landlord’s option, may be for the remainder of the then current term of this Lease or for any longer or shorter period.

(c) If this Lease is terminated by Landlord and Landlord has not relet the Demised Premises, Tenant nevertheless covenants and agrees notwithstanding any entry or re entry by Landlord, whether by summary proceedings, termination or otherwise, to pay and be liable for, on the days originally fixed by this Lease or payment, amounts equal

(e) Landlord and Tenant, so far as permitted by law, waive, and will waive trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either of the Parties against the other on any matters whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with this Lease, the relationship of Landlord and Tenant, Tenant’s use or occupancy of the demised premises, or any claim or injury or damage.

(f) The terms “enter,” “re-enter,” or “re-entry” as used in this Lease are not restricted to their technical legal meaning.

(g) In the event Landlord commences any proceedings for the recovery of possession of the Demised Premises or to recover for nonpayment of Base Rent or Additional Rent, Tenant shall not interpose any noncompulsory counterclaim in any such proceeding. This may not, however, be construed as a waiver of Tenant’s rights to assert such claim in any separate action or actions initiated by Tenant.

(h) No failure by either party to insist upon the strict performance of any covenant, agreement, term or condition of this Lease or to exercise any right or remedy consequent upon a breach thereof, and no acceptance of full or partial Rent during the continuance of any such breach shall be deemed an accord and satisfaction. Landlord may accept any check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s rights to recover the balance due. Landlord’s acceptance of any check or payment shall not constitute a waiver of any breach by Tenant of any provision hereof or of any covenant, agreement, term and condition to be performed by Tenant, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect with respect to any existing or subsequent breach thereof.

(i) In the event of any breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any of the covenants, agreements, terms or conditions contained in this Lease, Landlord shall be entitled to enjoin by appropriate legal proceeding, such breach or threatened breach and shall have the right to invoke any right or remedy allowed at law or in equity, by statute or otherwise.

Expenses shall include, but are not limited to, filing fees, legal fees and disbursements, bond premiums and bond rating premium increases.

(b) Nothing in this Article shall be deemed or construed as; (i) Landlord’s consent to any person, firm or corporation for the performance of any work or services or the supply of any materials to the demised premises or any improvement thereon; or (ii) giving Tenant or any other person, firm or corporation any right to contract for or to perform or supply any work, services or materials that would permit or give rise to a lien against the demised premises or any part thereof.

17.01 Limitations on Tenant Rights

(a) Neither this Lease, nor the interest of Tenant in this Lease, shall be sold, assigned, transferred, mortgaged, pledged, hypothecated or otherwise disposed of, whether by operation of law or otherwise, nor shall the Demised Premises or any part of the Demised Premises be sublet or subject to any license or concession, without the express, prior written consent of Landlord in each instance, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. For the purpose of this Lease, the sale or transfer of stock or other interests constituting a controlling interest in Tenant shall be considered an assignment, and likewise shall require Landlord’s prior written consent, except when Tenant or its parent is a corporation having its shares traded on the New York, American, NASDAQ or Over-The-Counter stock exchange or market.

Similarly, if Tenant is a partnership, the interest of any partner shall not be transferred without Landlord’s prior written consent. For the purposes of this Lease, the entering into of any managing agreement or any similar agreement which transfers control of the business operations of Tenant in the demised premises shall be treated as an assignment of this Lease and shall require Landlord’s prior written consent. Any attempted transfer, assignment, subletting, license or concession agreement, hypothecation or other transfer that is prohibited without Landlord’s prior written consent shall be void, and confer no rights upon any third party.

(b) No permitted assignment made shall be effective until Landlord receives: an agreement, in recordable form, executed by Tenant and the proposed assignee, in which such assignee assumes the due performance of all of the obligations on Tenant’s part to be performed under this Lease.

(c) Any assignment of this Lease or any sublease affecting the demised premises or any other permitted transfer under this Lease shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease. Regardless of the assumption by any assignee of the due performance of Tenant’s obligations hereunder or Landlord’s acceptance of Rent or other charges from any assignee or subtenant, Tenant shall not be released by any assignment, license or sublease but shall continue to be fully responsible for the due

15


 

performance of Tenant’s obligations hereunder in the same manner and to the same extent as if no such assignment, license or sublease had been made.

(d) Any transfer made in violation of the provisions of this Section shall constitute an Event of Default under Article 15 and give rise to Landlord’s right to re-enter the Demised Premises.

(e) The Tenant may without Landlord’s consent, but upon notice to Landlord, assign this Lease to any bank or financial institution which acquires the assets or stock of Tenant or is merged with Tenant, without Landlord’s consent.

(a) Any consent by Landlord to a sublease or license of all or any part of the Demised Premises or to a sale, assignment, mortgage, pledge, hypothecation or transfer of this Lease, shall apply only to the specific transaction thereby authorized and shall not relieve Tenant from the requirement of obtaining prior written consent of Landlord to any further sublease or license of the Demised Premises or any further sale, assignment, mortgage, pledge hypothecation or transfer of this Lease. When the consent of Landlord is required to any proposed assignment, sublease, mortgaging, pledging, licensing or hypothecation, Tenant shall submit in writing with its request for consent, information reasonably sufficient to enable Landlord to make a decision with respect thereto.
