5.02 Maintenance and Use of Common Area. The manner in which the Common Area shall be maintained shall be solely determined by Master Lessor. If any owner or tenant of any portion of the Center maintains Common Area located upon its parcel or demised premises (Master Lessor shall have the right in its sole discretion to allow any purchaser or tenant to so maintain Common Area located upon its parcel or demised premises and to be excluded from participation in the payment of Common Area Expenses as provided below), Master Lessor shall not have any responsibility for the maintenance of that portion of the Common Area and Master Lessee shall have no claims against Master Lessor arising out of any failure of such owner or tenant to so maintain its portion of the Common Area.

Master Lessee assumes all responsibility for the protection of Master Lessee, its agents, employees, contractors, customers and invitees and the property of Master Lessee and of Master Lessee’s agents, employees, contractors, customers and invitees, from acts of third parties. Nothing herein contained shall prevent Master Lessor, at Master Lessor’s sole option, from providing security protection for the Center or any part of it.

5.04 Common Area Expenses. The term “Common Area Expenses” as used in this Lease means all costs and expenses incurred by Master Lessor, in (a) operating, managing, policing, insuring, servicing, repairing and maintaining the Common Area, (b) maintaining, repairing and replacing the exterior surface of exterior walls and maintaining, repairing and replacing roofs of the buildings from time to time constituting the Center including the Building; and (c) operating, insuring, repairing, replacing and maintaining the Common Utility Facilities. “Common Utility Facilities” are defined to include but are not limited to, sanitary sewer lines and systems, gas lines and systems, water lines and systems, fire protection lines and systems, electric power, telephone and communication lines and systems, and storm drainage and retention facilities not exclusively serving the premises of any tenant or store located in the Center. Common Area Expenses shall include, without limitation, the following: expenses for maintenance, landscaping, repaving, resurfacing, repairs, replacements, painting, lighting, cleaning, trash removal, security, fire protection and similar items; non refundable contributions toward one or more reserves for replacements other than equipment; rental on equipment; charges, surcharges, and other levies related to the requirements of any federal, state or local governmental agency; expenses related to the Common Utility Facilities; personal property taxes and Real Property Taxes on the improvements and land comprising the Common Area; costs of insurance maintained by Master Lessor pursuant to this Lease; costs of improvements to the Common Area as may be required from time to time by any laws, ordinances, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or agency having jurisdiction thereof; and a sum payable to Master Lessor for administration and overhead in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the Common Area Expenses for the applicable year.

5.05 Determination of Master Lessee’s Monthly Common Area Expense Charge. From and after the Commencement Date, Master Lessee shall pay to Master Lessor, on the first day of each calendar month during the Term of this Lease, Master Lessee’s percentage share of an amount estimated by Master Lessor to be the Monthly Common Area Expenses for the Center for that month (“Master Lessee’s Monthly Common Area Expense Charge”).

5.06 Estimate Statement. Prior to the Commencement Date and on or about March 1st of each subsequent calendar year during the Term of this Lease, Master Lessor will endeavor to deliver to Master Lessee a statement (“Estimate Statement”) wherein Master Lessor will estimate both the Common Area Expenses and Master Lessee’s Monthly Common Area Expense Charge for the then current calendar year. Master Lessee agrees to pay Master Lessor, as additional rent, Master Lessee’s estimated Monthly Common Area Expense Charge each month thereafter, beginning with the next installment of rent due, until such time as Master Lessor issues a revised Estimate Statement or the Estimate Statement for the succeeding calendar year; except that, concurrently with the regular monthly rent payment next due following the receipt of each such Estimate Statement, Master Lessee agrees to pay Master Lessor an amount equal to one monthly installment of Master Lessee’s estimated Monthly Common Area Expense Charge (less any applicable Common Area Expenses already paid) multiplied by the number of months from January, in the current calendar year, to the month of such rent payment next due, all months inclusive. If at any time during the Term of this Lease, but not more often than quarterly, Master Lessor reasonably determines that Master Lessee’s Share of Common Area Expenses for the current

 

 

Page 6


calendar year will be greater than the amount set forth in the then current Estimate Statement, Master Lessor may issue a revised Estimate Statement and Master Lessee agrees to pay Master Lessor, within ten (10) days of receipt of the revised Estimate Statement, the difference between the amount owed by Master Lessee under such revised Estimate Statement and the amount owed by Master Lessee under the original Estimate Statement for the portion of the then current calendar year which has expired. Thereafter Master Lessee agrees to pay Master Lessee’s Monthly Common Area Expense Charge based on such revised Estimate Statement until Master Lessee receives the next calendar year’s Estimate Statement or a new revised Estimate Statement for the current calendar year.

5.07 Actual Statement. By March 1st of each calendar year during the Term of this Lease, Master Lessor will also endeavor to deliver to Master Lessee a statement (“Actual Statement”) which states Master Lessee’s Share of the actual Common Area Expenses for the preceding calendar year. If the Actual Statement reveals that Master Lessee’s Share of the actual Common Area Expenses is more than the total Additional Rent paid by Master Lessee for Common Area Expenses on account of the preceding calendar year, Master Lessee agrees to pay Master Lessor the difference in a lump sum within ten (10) days of receipt of the Actual Statement. If the Actual Statement reveals that Master Lessee’s Share of the actual Common Area Expenses is less than the Additional Rent paid by Master Lessee for Common Area Expenses on account of the preceding calendar year, Master Lessor will credit any overpayment toward the next monthly installment(s) of Master Lessee’s Share of the Common Area Expenses due under this Lease.

5.08 Miscellaneous. Any delay or failure by Master Lessor in delivering any Estimate Statement or Actual Statement pursuant to this Section 4 will not constitute a waiver of its right to require an increase in rent nor will it relieve Master Lessee of its obligations pursuant to this Section. If Master Lessee does not object to any Estimate Statement or Actual Statement within thirty (30) days after Master Lessee receives any such statement, such statement will be deemed final and binding on Master Lessee. Even though the Term has expired and Master Lessee has vacated the Premises, when the final determination is made of Master Lessee’s Share of the actual Common Area Expenses for the year in which this Lease terminates, Master Lessee agrees to promptly pay any increase due over the estimated expenses paid and, conversely, any overpayment made in the event said expenses decrease shall promptly be rebated by Master Lessor to Master Lessee. Such obligation will be a continuing one which will survive the expiration or termination of this Lease. Prior to the expiration or sooner termination of the Lease Term and Master Lessor’s acceptance of Master Lessee’s surrender of the Premises, Master Lessor will have the right to estimate the actual Common Area Expenses for the then current Lease Year and to collect from Master Lessee prior to Master Lessee’s surrender of the Premises, Master Lessee’s Share of any excess of such actual Common Area Expenses over the estimated Common Area Expenses paid by Master Lessee in such Lease Year.

Page 12


(ii) Terminate this Lease, whether or not the leased Premises or any part thereof shall have been relet, by written notice to Master Lessee, whereupon this Lease shall end; provided, however, that no such termination of this Lease shall relieve Master Lessee of its liability and obligations under this Lease incurred prior to such termination. Upon such termination, Master Lessee shall be immediately liable for the damages, present and prospective, which were the necessary and direct result of Master Lessee’s breach, as well as for any special damages as may have resulted from such breach. All amounts and arrearages due and payable to Master Lessor by Master Lessee shall bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law.

(c) Treat the Lease as remaining in existence, curing Master Lessee’s default by performing or paying the obligation which Master Lessee has breached, all sums paid or expenses incurred by Master Lessor directly or indirectly incurring Master Lessee’s default, which amounts shall become immediately due and payable and shall bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law from the date of disbursement by Master Lessor until paid by Master Lessee. If the breach consists of a failure to pay the rent stipulated in this Lease and Master Lessor elects to treat the Lease as remaining in existence, Master Lessor can take such action as is necessary to recover the rent due as each installment matures or for the whole amount at the end of the term, or Master Lessor can immediately upon the breach take such action as is necessary to recover the entire remaining unpaid rent for the balance of the term hereof.

(d) Any failure by Master Lessor to insist, or any election by Master Lessor not to insist, upon strict performance by Master Lessee of any of the terms, provisions or conditions of this Lease shall not be deemed to be a waiver of same or of any other terms, provision or condition thereof and Master Lessor shall have the right at any time or times thereafter to insist upon strict performance by Master Lessee of any and all of such terms, provisions and conditions. Nothing contained in this Lease and no act done or omitted by Master Lessor pursuant to the powers and rights granted Master Lessor under the terms of this Lease shall be deemed to be a waiver by Master Lessor of the rights and remedies of Master Lessor under this Lease and this Lease is made and accepted without prejudice to any of the rights and remedies possessed by Master Lessor under the terms of this Lease. Further, in no event shall any such action or inaction described above by Master Lessor with respect to any of the terms and conditions contained herein, whether evidenced by a written agreement or otherwise, operate in any manner as the action or inaction of Lender or as the agreement of Lender and shall not affect in any manner any rights of Lender to enforce all of the terms and provisions herein or to bind Lender in any manner.

(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth above, Master Lessor shall have no right to exercise any of the remedies in this Article 13 without the prior written approval of Lender, which may be given or withheld in Lender’s sole discretion.

In addition to its other obligations under this Lease, the Master Lessee will indemnify and save harmless the Master Lessor (including the Master Lessor’s partners, members, shareholders, officers, directors and employees, each individually an “Indemnified Party” and collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, damages, penalties, claims, costs, charges and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, which may be imposed upon or incurred by or asserted against such persons (except to the extent the same are caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of the Master Lessor, its agents, employees, licensees, invitees, contractors and/or subcontractors) by reason of any of the following:

(a) any work or thing done by anyone other than the Master Lessor in, on or about the Premises or any part thereof;

(b) any use, non-use, possession, occupation, condition, operation, maintenance or management of the Premises or any part thereof or any street, alley, sidewalk, curb, passageway or space adjacent thereto;

(c) any gross negligence of the Master Lessee or any agent, contractor, employee, licensee or invitee of the Master Lessee;

(d) any accident or injury to any person (including death) or damage to property occurring in, on or about the Premises or any part thereof or any street, alley, sidewalk, curb, passageway, or space adjacent thereto;

(e) any failure on the part of Master Lessee to perform or comply with any of the agreements, terms or conditions contained in this Lease on its part to be performed or complied with; and

(f) any default by Master Lessor, or any of the parties who together constitute Master Lessor, under this Lease, any Loan Document, any other agreement or obligation which relates to the Premises and is not made an obligation of the Master Lessee pursuant to this Lease.

In the event that any action or proceeding shall be brought against an Indemnified Party by reason of any matter covered by this Section 13.03, the Master Lessee, upon notice from the Indemnified Party, will at the Master Lessee’s sole cost and expense resist or defend the same. To the extent of the proceeds received by the Master Lessor under any insurance policy furnished or supplied to the Master Lessor by the Master Lessee, the Master Lessee’s obligation to indemnify and save harmless an Indemnified Party against the hazard which is the subject of such insurance shall be deemed to be satisfied.

ARTICLE 14:

SUBORDINATION, ESTOPPEL AND LIENS

14.01. Subordination. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Loan and any and all Loan Documents, Master Lessor reserves the right to grant a mortgage or mortgages on Master Lessor’s interest in the Premises and this Lease. Master Lessee shall, upon the written request of Master Lessor accompanied by Lender’s written consent, subordinate this Lease to the lien of any mortgage upon the Premises; provided, that any subordination agreement to be signed by Master Lessee shall contain a non-disturbance provision that will remain effective as long as Master Lessee is not in default hereunder beyond any applicable cure period. Such agreement shall be substantially in the form reasonably satisfactory to Master Lessee and any such mortgagee. As used herein, “mortgage” shall include mortgages, deeds of trust, deeds to secure debt or other similar instruments, and any modifications or extensions of same.

14.02. Estoppel. Within 10 days after the request by either party, the other party agrees to deliver to the requesting party and to any potential mortgagee, assignee or purchaser of the requesting party’s interest in the Premises an estoppel certificate, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the requesting party, certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if there have been modifications, whether same is in full force and effect as modified, and stating the modifications), that, to the certifying party or, to the reasonable knowledge and belief, there are no defenses or offsets thereto (or stating those claimed by the certifying party), that there are no defaults by the certifying party or, to the reasonable knowledge and belief of the certifying party, on the part of the requesting party (or, if such defaults exist, stating their nature) and such other matters as the requesting party may reasonably request; provided, however, that no such estoppel certificate shall be deemed to amend or modify this Lease.

14.03. Liens. Master Lessee shall have no authority, express or implied, to create or place a leasehold mortgage or any other lien or encumbrance of any kind or nature whatsoever upon, or in any manner to bind, the interest of Master Lessor in the Premises or to charge the rentals payable hereunder for any claim in favor of any person dealing with Master Lessee, including those who may furnish materials or perform labor for any construction or repairs, and each such claim shall affect and each such lien shall attach to, if at all, only the leasehold interest granted to Master Lessee by this Lease. Master Lessee covenants and agrees that it will pay or cause to be paid all sums legally due and payable by it on account of any labor performed or materials furnished in connection with any work performed on the Premises on which any lien is or can be validly and legally asserted against its leasehold interest in the Premises or the improvements thereon and that it will save and hold Master Lessor harmless from any and all loss, cost or expense based on or arising out of asserted claims or liens against the leasehold estate or against the right, title and interest of Master Lessor in the Premises or under the terms of this Lease. Master Lessee will not permit any mechanic’s lien or liens or any other liens which may be imposed by law affecting Master Lessor’s or its mortgagee’s interest in the Premises to be placed upon the Premises, and in

 

 

Page 15


case of the filing of any such lien Master Lessee will promptly pay or bond over same. If any such lien shall remain in force and effect for 20 days after written notice thereof, Master Lessor shall have the right and privilege at Master Lessor’s option of paying and discharging the same or any portion thereof without inquiry as to the validity thereof, and any amounts so paid, including expenses and interest, shall be so much additional indebtedness hereunder due from Master Lessee to Master Lessor and shall be repaid to Master Lessor immediately on rendition of a bill thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Master Lessee shall have the right to contest any such lien in good faith and with all due diligence so long as any such contest, or action taken in connection therewith, protects the interest of Master Lessor and Master Lessor’s mortgagee in the Premises and Master Lessor and any such mortgagee are, by the expiration of said 20 day period, furnished such protection and indemnification against any loss, cost or expense related to any such lien and the contest thereof as are reasonably satisfactory to Master Lessor and any such mortgagee. Except as otherwise provided herein, Master Lessor hereby waives any contractual, statutory or other Master Lessor’s lien on Master Lessee’s furniture, fixtures, supplies, equipment, inventory and Master Lessee’s other property.

14.04 Lender’s Rights. Master Lessor and Master Lessee acknowledge, for the benefit of Lender, that in connection with the Loan, Lender has or will receive an assignment of this Lease by an assignment of Leases and Rents to be recorded in the real estate records of Osceola County, Florida, and that Lender is relying upon such assignment in making the Loan. Master Lessor and Master Lessee acknowledge and agree upon any Event of Default under any of the Loan Documents, Lender will be entitled to enforce such assignment of this Lease and replace Master Lessor under this Lease for all purposes. Master Lessee agrees, from and after notice from Lender of its exercise of rights under such assignment, to acknowledge Lender as Master Lessor and attorn to Lender under the Lease.

EXHIBIT B

Guaranty

In order to induce American National Insurance Company, a Texas insurance company (“Lender”) to make that certain $19,000,000 loan (the “Loan”) to TNP SRT Osceola Village, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Master Lessor”), Lender has required that TNP Strategic Retail Trust, Inc., a Maryland corporation (“Guarantor”) execute this Guaranty of that certain Master Lease Agreement between Master Lessor and TNP SRT Osceola Village Master Lessee, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Tenant”) for certain premises containing approximately 23,005 square feet of space (the “Premises”), located in that certain shopping center containing approximately 116,000 square feet of space (the “Center”), located in Kissimmee, Florida, of which the Premises are a part.

Accordingly, Guarantor hereby unconditionally, absolutely and irrevocably guarantees to Lender, and its successors and assigns, the prompt and full payment and performance by Tenant of each and every item, covenant, condition, provision and obligation to be paid, kept, observed or performed by Tenant under the Lease (collectively the “Obligations”). The liability of Guarantor is coextensive with that of Tenant and also joint and several, and legal action may be brought against Guarantor and carried to final judgment either with or without making Tenant or any assignee or successor thereof as a party thereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, This Guaranty shall be enforceable against Guarantor without the necessity of (i) any suit instigated by Master Lessor against Tenant or any other guarantor, (ii) the exhaustion of Master Lessor’s remedies with respect to Tenant under the Lease or any other guarantor, or (iii) the enforcement of Master Lessor’s rights with respect to any security which has ever been given to secure the payment and performance of the Obligations. This Guaranty shall also be enforceable without the necessity of any notice of Tenant’s nonpayment or nonperformance except to the extent required by the Lease, notice of acceptance of this Guaranty or any other notice or demand to which Guarantor might otherwise be entitled, all of which Guarantor hereby expressly waives.

This Guaranty shall be binding upon the undersigned, and all successors, assigns, personal or legal representatives and heirs, and shall inure to the benefit of Lender and Lender’s successors and assigns. The undersigned hereby consents and agrees that this Guaranty may be assigned by Master Lessor, without recourse, in connection with any sale or assignment by Master Lessor of part or all of its interest in the Center in which the Premises under the Lease are contained.

The obligations of Guarantor shall be irrevocable and unconditional, irrespective of the genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of the Lease or any security given for the Obligations or any circumstance which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge of a surety or guarantor, and Guarantor waives the benefit of all principles or provisions of law, statutory or otherwise, which are or might be in conflict with the terms of this Guaranty, and agrees

 

 

Page 27


that the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall not be affected by any circumstances, whether or not referred to in this Guaranty, which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge of a surety or guarantor. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Guarantor agrees that the occurrence of the following events (or any thereof), whether they occur with or without notice or consent by Guarantor, will in no way release or impair any liability or obligation of Guarantor hereunder: (i) Master Lessor, in its discretion, waives compliance by Tenant with any of its Obligations or covenants under the Lease or waives any default thereunder, or grants any indulgence with respect to the Lease, (ii) Master Lessor with Tenant’s written agreement modifies, amends or changes any provision of the Lease or the guaranty of any other guarantor (including, without limitation, any termination or release of such guaranty), (iii) Master Lessor grants extensions or renewals of the Lease or the Obligations, (iv) Master Lessor transfers its interest in the premises covered by the Lease or its rights under this Guaranty, (v) Master Lessor consents to the assignment by Tenant of its rights under the Lease or consent to the subletting of all or any part of the Premises, (vi) Master Lessor deals in any respect with Tenant and the Obligations, and any other guarantor and such guaranty, as if this Guaranty were not in effect, (vii) Master Lessor, in its discretion, waives compliance by any other guarantor with any of its Obligations or covenants under such other guaranty or waives any default thereunder, or grants any indulgence with respect to the such guaranty, (viii) the release or discharge of Tenant or any other guarantor in an creditor’s proceedings, receivership, bankruptcy or other proceeding, (ix) the impairment, limitation or modification of the liability of Tenant or the estate of Tenant in bankruptcy, or of any remedy for the enforcement of Tenant’s liability under the Lease, resulting from the operation of any present or future provision of the federal Bankruptcy Act or other statute or from the decision in any court, and (x) the rejection or disaffirmance of the Lease in any such proceedings. If, as a result of such proceedings, Master Lessor is forced to refund any payment made by Tenant to Master Lessor because it is found to be a preference or for any other reason, Guarantor hereby covenants to pay such amount to Master Lessor upon demand.

All of Master Lessor’s rights and remedies under the Lease or under this Guaranty are intended to be distinct, separate and cumulative, and no such right or remedy therein mentioned is intended to be in exclusion of or a waiver of any of the others. Specifically, the obligation of Guarantor hereunder shall not be released by Master Lessor’s receipt, application or release of security given for performance and observance of covenants and conditions required to be performed and observed by Tenant under the Lease.

If any provision of this Guaranty is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during the term of this Guaranty, such provision shall be fully severable and this Guaranty shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part of this Guaranty, and the remaining provisions of this Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance from this Guaranty, unless such continued effectiveness of this Guaranty, as modified, would be contrary to the basic understandings and intentions of the parties as expressed herein.

EXHIBIT C

SPRINGING GUARANTY

In order to induce American National Insurance Company, a Texas insurance company (“Lender”) to make that certain $19,000,000 loan (the “Loan”) to TNP SRT Osceola Village, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Master Lessor”), Lender has required that Thompson National Properties, LLC, a Delaware limited liability (“Springing Guarantor”) execute this Guaranty of that certain Master Lease Agreement between Master Lessor and TNP SRT Osceola Village Master Lessee, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Tenant”) for certain premises containing approximately 23,005 square feet of space (the “Premises”), located in that certain shopping center containing approximately 116,000 square feet of space (the “Center”), located in Kissimmee, Florida, of which the Premises are a part.

This Guaranty shall become effective at such time as there is a Trigger Event, as defined below. This Guaranty is intended to be a present obligation of a future contingent commitment.

A “Trigger Event” means one or more of the following: (a) default occurs under that certain revolving credit facility by and between KeyBank National Association (whether as agent for one or more lenders or for itself), as Lender, and TNP SRT Secured Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, evidenced in part by that certain Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of December 17, 2010, as amended from time to time; (b) KeyBank National Association as agent for one or more lenders or for itself, or successors or assigns; or (c) any other lender that has a lien or security interest on any one or more of the Mortgagee Related Parties, acquires one or more of the Mortgagee Related Parties, or any interest therein, (including, without limitation, membership interests, partnership interests, shares or other ownership interests). “Mortgagee Related Parties” mean: Mortgagor, Thompson National Properties, LLC, TNP Strategic Retail Trust, Inc., TNP Strategic Retail Operating Partnership, L.P. or any other Constituent Owner,

Accordingly, Guarantor hereby unconditionally, absolutely and irrevocably guarantees to Lender, and its successors and assigns, the prompt and full payment and performance by Tenant of each and every item, covenant, condition, provision and obligation to be paid, kept, observed or performed by Tenant under the Lease (collectively the “Obligations”). The liability of Guarantor is coextensive with that of Tenant and also joint and several, and legal action may be brought against Guarantor and carried to final judgment either with or without making Tenant or any assignee or successor thereof as a party thereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, This Guaranty shall be enforceable against Guarantor without the necessity of (i) any suit instigated by Master Lessor against Tenant or any other guarantor, (ii) the exhaustion of Master Lessor’s remedies with respect to Tenant under the Lease or any other guarantor, or (iii) the enforcement of Master Lessor’s rights with respect to any security which has ever been given to secure the payment and performance of the Obligations. This Guaranty shall also be enforceable without the

 

 

Page 32


necessity of any notice of Tenant’s nonpayment or nonperformance except to the extent required by the Lease, notice of acceptance of this Guaranty or any other notice or demand to which Guarantor might otherwise be entitled, all of which Guarantor hereby expressly waives.

This Guaranty shall be binding upon the undersigned, and all successors, assigns, personal or legal representatives and heirs, and shall inure to the benefit of Lender and Lender’s successors and assigns. The undersigned hereby consents and agrees that this Guaranty may be assigned by Master Lessor, without recourse, in connection with any sale or assignment by Master Lessor of part or all of its interest in the Center in which the Premises under the Lease are contained.

The obligations of Guarantor shall be irrevocable and unconditional, irrespective of the genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of the Lease or any security given for the Obligations or any circumstance which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge of a surety or guarantor, and Guarantor waives the benefit of all principles or provisions of law, statutory or otherwise, which are or might be in conflict with the terms of this Guaranty, and agrees that the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall not be affected by any circumstances, whether or not referred to in this Guaranty, which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge of a surety or guarantor. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Guarantor agrees that the occurrence of the following events (or any thereof), whether they occur with or without notice or consent by Guarantor, will in no way release or impair any liability or obligation of Guarantor hereunder: (i) Master Lessor, in its discretion, waives compliance by Tenant with any of its Obligations or covenants under the Lease or waives any default thereunder, or grants any indulgence with respect to the Lease, (ii) Master Lessor with Tenant’s written agreement modifies, amends or changes any provision of the Lease or the guaranty of any other guarantor (including, without limitation, any termination or release of such guaranty), (iii) Master Lessor grants extensions or renewals of the Lease or the Obligations, (iv) Master Lessor transfers its interest in the premises covered by the Lease or its rights under this Guaranty, (v) Master Lessor consents to the assignment by Tenant of its rights under the Lease or consent to the subletting of all or any part of the Premises, (vi) Master Lessor deals in any respect with Tenant and the Obligations, and any other guarantor and such guaranty, as if this Guaranty were not in effect, (vii) Master Lessor, in its discretion, waives compliance by any other guarantor with any of its Obligations or covenants under such other guaranty or waives any default thereunder, or grants any indulgence with respect to the such guaranty, (viii) the release or discharge of Tenant or any other guarantor in an creditor’s proceedings, receivership, bankruptcy or other proceeding, (ix) the impairment, limitation or modification of the liability of Tenant or the estate of Tenant in bankruptcy, or of any remedy for the enforcement of Tenant’s liability under the Lease, resulting from the operation of any present or future provision of the federal Bankruptcy Act or other statute or from the decision in any court, and (x) the rejection or disaffirmance of the Lease in any such proceedings. If, as a result of such proceedings, Master Lessor is forced to refund any payment made by Tenant to Master Lessor because it is found to be a preference or for any other reason, Guarantor hereby covenants to pay such amount to Master Lessor upon demand.

All of Master Lessor’s rights and remedies under the Lease or under this Guaranty are intended to be distinct, separate and cumulative, and no such right or remedy therein mentioned is intended to be in exclusion of or a waiver of any of the others. Specifically, the obligation of Guarantor hereunder shall not be released by Master Lessor’s receipt, application or release of security given for performance and observance of covenants and conditions required to be performed and observed by Tenant under the Lease.

If any provision of this Guaranty is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during the term of this Guaranty, such provision shall be fully severable and this Guaranty shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part of this Guaranty, and the remaining provisions of this Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance from this Guaranty, unless such continued effectiveness of this Guaranty, as modified, would be contrary to the basic understandings and intentions of the parties as expressed herein.

All references to the singular shall include the plural and vice versa and all references to any gender shall include the others, wherever appropriate

As used herein, the term “Tenant” shall include any successor or assignee of Tenant, the term “Master Lessor” shall include any successor or assignee of Master Lessor, and the term “Lease” shall include any amendment, extension or renewal of the Lease.
