At the expiration of the original Lease term, Tenant shall have the

forth above, Landlord shall have the power to cause Tenant to purchase the
Premises for the Purchase Price. Landlord must exercise its right under this
Section by giving written notice to Tenant between November 1, 1989 and November
30, 1989. Tenant shall complete the purchase, including the payment of all
monies due, no later than December 31, 1989. However, Landlord's power to cause

Dollars. To exercise this option, Tenant must give written notice to Landlord

diminish, affect or release the liability of Tenant hereunder. Landlord may
assign its rights under this Lease.
RIGHT TO MAKE ALTERATIONS
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease,
Tenant is granted the right to make reasonable alterations, decorations and
improvements to the Premises, provided the same are used in connection with
Tenant's operations at the Premises. All such alterations, decorations and
improvements shall be the property of Landlord.
EMINENT DOMAIN OR FIRE
Section 1. If more than Fifty (50%) Percent of the Premises is taken
by any public authority under the power of eminent domain, then the term of this
Lease shall cease on the part so taken, from the day possession of that part is
required for any public purpose and rent shall be paid up to that day and for
sixty (60) days from that day the Tenant shall have the right either to cancel
the Lease and declare the same null and void or to continue in the possession of
the remainder of the same under the terms herein except that the rent shall be
reduced in proportion to the amount of the Premises taken.
All damages awarded for such taking shall belong to and be the
property of the Landlord whether such damages shall be awarded as compensation
for diminution in value to the leasehold or the fee of the Premises; however,
the Landlord shall not be entitled to any portion of the award made to the
Tenant for loss of business, or for Tenant's cost of vacating all or that part
of the Premises so taken.
Section 2. It is understood and agreed that if the Premises are
damaged or destroyed in whole or in part by fire or other casualty during the
term hereof, the Landlord will repair and restore the same to good tenantable
condition with reasonable dispatch, and that the rent herein provided for shall
abate entirely in case the entire Premises are untenantable and pro rata for the
portion rendered untenantable, in case a part only is untenantable, until the
same shall be restored to a tenantable condition.
However, if the Tenant fails to adjust its own insurance or to remove
its damaged goods, wares, equipment or property within a reasonable time, and as
a result thereof the repairing and restoration is delayed, there shall be no
abatement of rental during the period of such resulting delay.
Further, there shall be no abatement of rental if such fire or other
cause damaging or destroying the Premises results from the negligence or willful
act of the Tenant, its agents or employees. Further, if the Tenant uses any
part of the Premises for storage during the period of repair a reasonable charge
shall be made therefor against the Tenant.
Finally, in case the Premises are destroyed to the extent of more than
one-half (1/2) of the value thereof, the Landlord or Tenant may, at its option,
terminate this Lease forthwith by a written notice to the other party hereto.
RIGHT TO ERECT SIGNS
Tenant is hereby granted the right to erect signs on the exterior of
the Premises which shall be constructed in conformity with all requirements of
local law. Tenant agrees to hold Landlord harmless from any liability arising
out of or in connection with the erection or maintenance of such signs.
LANDLORD'S RIGHT TO CURE TENANT'S DEFAULT
Landlord may, without notice if in the opinion of Landlord an
emergency exists, perform any covenant or condition of this Lease for the
Tenant's account and at the Tenant's expense, in the event that the Tenant shall
default in the performance of any such covenant or condition. Landlord shall be
reimbursed by Tenant for any expense incurred by Landlord in instituting,
prosecuting, or defending any action or proceeding instituted because of any
default of Tenant. If Tenant becomes obligated to reimburse or otherwise pay
Landlord, under the terms of this Lease, any sum in addition to the rent as set
forth in Article 3 of this Lease, the said sum shall be considered additional
rent and may, at Landlord's option, be added to any subsequent installment of
said rent due and payable under this Lease.

placed by Landlord against the Premises shall provide that if the mortgagee or
any successor in interest shall take over the rights of Landlord in the Premises
or shall become the owner of the Premises by reason of foreclosure or otherwise,
such mortgagee or successor shall not disturb the possession, use or enjoyment
of the Premises by the Tenant, and shall recognize the rights of Tenant
hereunder, and shall not disaffirm this Lease or Tenant's right of estate
hereunder, so long as all the obligations of the Tenant are fully performed in

covenants, terms, conditions, provisions, rules (excepting those items listed in

Tenant shall within such thirty (30) day period promptly commence and proceed
with reasonable diligence and in good faith to remedy such default.

assignment for the benefit of creditors, or take the benefit of any Insolvency
Act, or if a Receiver or Trustee in Bankruptcy shall be appointed for the
Tenant's property, or if the interest of the Tenant in the Premises shall be
offered for sale or sold under execution or other legal process.
In the event of such re-entry, Landlord shall have the right to remove
all persons therefrom, to recover the possession thereof by legal proceedings or
otherwise, and to use such force to enter and regain possession thereof as
Landlord shall deem proper without being liable to any civil action or criminal
prosecution therefor. No such re-entry by Landlord shall be deemed a
termination of this Lease or an acceptance of a surrender of this Lease.

charges to become due during the term of this Lease shall be accelerated and
shall be immediately due and payable and Landlord shall have the right, but
shall not be obligated to, relet or subdivide the Premises for any period equal
to or greater or less than the remainder of the original term of this Lease, for

select, and for any use and purpose which Landlord may designate.

first to the payment of Landlord's expenses, including, but not limited to

Lease, Landlord shall have the right to an injunction by a court of competent
jurisdiction and the right to invoke any remedy permitted to Landlord by law.
All remedies available to Landlord are declared to be cumulative and concurrent.
No termination of this Lease, nor any taking or recovering of possession of the

injured party under such insurance.
The failure of the Tenant or Landlord to insist, in any one or more
instances, upon a strict performance of any of the covenants of this Lease, or
to exercise any option herein contained, shall not be construed as a waiver or a
relinquishment for the future of such covenant or option, but the same shall
continue and remain in full force and effect. The receipt by the Landlord of
rent or the payment by the Tenant of rent, with knowledge of the breach of any
covenant hereof, shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach and no waiver by

thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent, be invalid or
unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such terms,

term, covenant or condition of this Lease shall be valid and be enforced to the
fullest extent permitted by law.

which may create or be the foundation for any lien, mortgage or other
encumbrance upon the estate of the Landlord or of any interest of the Landlord
in the Premises, or upon or in the building or buildings or improvements thereon
or hereafter erected or placed hereon. All such laborers, materialmen,
contractors, and any others, are hereby charged with notice that they must look
solely and wholly to the Tenant to secure the payment of any bills for work done
