PART II   STANDARD LEASE PROVISIONS

ARTICLE I   PREMISES

           1.1Premises.
 
 
           (a)Demise of Premises.  This Lease (the "Lease") is made and entered into by and between Landlord and Tenant and shall become effective as of the Date of Lease.  In consideration of the mutual covenants made herein, Landlord hereby leases to Tenant, and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord, the Premises, on all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease.

           (b)Access to Premises.  Landlord shall have reasonable access to the Premises, at any time during the Term, to inspect Tenant's performance hereunder and to perform any acts required of or permitted to Landlord herein, including, without limitation, (i) the right to make any repairs or replacements Landlord deems necessary, (ii) the right to show the Premises to prospective purchasers and mortgagees, and (iii) during the last nine (9) months of the Term, the right to show the Premises to prospective tenants.  Landlord shall at all times have a key to the Premises, and Tenant shall not change any existing lock(s), nor install any additional lock(s) without Landlord's prior consent.  Except in the case of any emergency, any entry into the Premises by Landlord shall be on reasonable advance notice.

           1.2Common Areas.  Tenant shall have the right to use, in common with other tenants, the Building's common lobbies, corridors, stairways, and elevators necessary for access to the Premises, and the common walkways and driveways necessary for access to the Building, the common toilets, corridors and elevator lobbies of any multi-tenant floor, and the parking areas for the Building ("Common Areas").  Tenant's use of the Building parking areas shall be on an unreserved, non-exclusive basis and solely for Tenant's employees and visitors.  Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant, and this Lease shall not be affected, if any parking rights of Tenant hereunder are impaired by any law, ordinance or other governmental regulation imposed after the Date of Lease.  If Landlord grants to any other tenant the exclusive right to use any particular parking spaces, neither Tenant nor its visitors shall use such spaces.  Use of the Common Areas shall be only upon the terms set forth at any time by Landlord.  Landlord may at any time and in a manner consistent with other Class A multi-tenant office buildings in the greater Indianapolis Metropolitan area, make any changes, additions, improvements, repairs or replacements to the Common Areas that it considers desirable, provided that Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenant's normal activities.  Such actions of Landlord shall not constitute constructive eviction or give rise to any rent abatement or liability of Landlord to Tenant.

ARTICLE II   TERM

           2.1Term.  The Term shall begin on July 1, 2009, the Commencement Date, and shall continue for the length of the Term, unless sooner terminated as provided in this Lease.

           2.2Early Termination Right.  On July 30th 2015, Tenant will have the one time right to terminate this Lease, including any amendments hereto.  Tenant will provide 9 months notice of its intent to exercise its right to terminate, and provide payment on or before July 30, 2015, equal to all unamortized leasing costs (consisting of the Tenant Improvement Allowance and the real estate leasing commissions) at a discount rate of 8% plus three (3) months' Base Rent.
ARTICLE III   RENT

           3.1Base Rent.

           (a)Payment of Base Rent.  Tenant shall pay the Base Rent each month in advance on the first day of each calendar month during the Term.  If the Commencement Date is other than the first day of the month, Tenant shall pay a proportionate part of such monthly installment on the Commencement Date.  An adjustment in the Base Rent for the last month of the Term shall be made if the Term does not end on the last day of the month.  All payments shall be made to Manager at Manager's Address or to such other party or to such other place as Landlord may designate in writing, without prior demand and without abatement, deduction or offset.  All charges to be paid by Tenant hereunder, other than Base Rent, shall be considered additional rent for the purposes of this Lease, and the words "rent" or "Rent" as used in this Lease shall mean both Base Rent and additional rent unless the context specifically or clearly indicates that only Base Rent is referenced.  

           (b)Late Payments.  If any rent or other sum due from Tenant is not received when due, Landlord shall send a letter notifying Tenant to comply within ten (10) days from rental due date and Tenant shall pay to Landlord no later than ten (10) calendar days after the rental due date an additional sum equal to 5% of such overdue payment.  In addition to such late charge, all such delinquent rent or other sums due to Landlord, including the late charge, shall bear interest beginning on the date such payment was due at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum.  The notice and cure period provided in Paragraph 8.1(a) does not apply to the foregoing late charges and interest.  If payments of any kind are returned for insufficient funds Tenant shall pay to Landlord an additional handling charge of $50.00.

(vi)
Comparison Year Operating Expenses.  Operating Expenses incurred during the Comparison Year, provided that: (1) if the Building is less than 100% occupied during the Comparison Year, then in determining the Comparison Year Operating Expenses, all Operating Expenses that may reasonably be determined to vary in accordance with the occupancy level of the Building, shall be grossed up to reflect 95% occupancy by multiplying the amount of such expenses by a fraction, the numerator of which is the total rentable square feet in the Building and the denominator of which is the average square feet in the Building that is occupied by tenants during the Comparison Year; and (2) if any extraordinary expenses are incurred during the Comparison Year which typically are not operations, maintenance, or repair costs of a stabilized property, as reasonably estimated by Landlord, then such expenses shall be excluded from the calculation of Operating Expenses for that Comparison Year.

Taxes.  Any form of assessment, rental tax, license tax, business license tax, levy, charge, tax or similar imposition imposed by any authority having the power to tax, including any city, county, state or federal government, or any school, agricultural, lighting, library, drainage, or other improvement or special assessment district, as against the Property or any part thereof or any legal or equitable interest of Landlord therein, or against Landlord by virtue of its interest therein, and any reasonable costs incurred by Landlord in any proceedings for abatement thereof, including, without limitation, attorneys' and consultants' fees, and regardless of whether any abatement is obtained.  Landlord's income taxes; franchise taxes; inheritance taxes; gift taxes; excise taxes; increases in property taxes attributable to the sale of the Building; and special assessments levied against Landlord's property other than real estate, are excluded from Taxes.

(ix)
Comparison Year Taxes. Taxes paid during the Comparison Year.

           (d)Audit Rights.  Notwithstanding any provisions of this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall have the right, after reasonable notice and at reasonable times to inspect Landlord's accounting records one time per year within sixty (60) days of Tenant's receipt of its invoice for its pro rata share of expenses.  If Tenant's inspection reveals that Landlord has overcharged Tenant for Operating Costs or Taxes, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant the amount of such overcharge within ninety (90) days of verification thereof plus interest on said overage at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum.  
 
 
ARTICLE IV   DELIVERY OF PREMISES AND TENANT IMPROVEMENTS

           4.3Delivery and Acceptance of Possession.  Tenant shall accept possession and enter in good faith occupancy of the entire Premises and commence the operation of its business therein within thirty (30) days after the Commencement Date.  Tenant's taking possession of any part of the Premises shall be deemed to be an acceptance and an acknowledgment by Tenant that (i) Tenant has had an opportunity to conduct, and has conducted, such inspections of the Premises as it deems necessary to evaluate its condition, (ii) except as otherwise specifically provided herein, Tenant accepts possession of the Premises in its then existing condition, "as-is", including all patent and latent defects, (iii) upon completion of Tenant Improvements provided for in Exhibit D after the Commencement Date, Tenant's taking possession of a part of the Premises following completion of the Tenant Improvements shall be deemed to be an acceptance and an acknowledgement by Tenant that the Tenant Improvements have been completed in accordance with the terms of this Lease, except for defects, deficiencies, or omissions of which Tenant has given Landlord written notice within the first ninety (90) days after Tenant takes possession; and (iv) neither Landlord, nor any of Landlord's agents, has made any oral or written representations or warranties with respect to such matters other than as set forth in this Lease.

           4.4Early Occupancy.  If Landlord agrees in writing to allow Tenant or its contractors to enter the Premises prior to the Commencement Date, Tenant (and its contractors) shall do so upon all of the provisions of this Lease (including Tenant's obligations regarding indemnity and insurance), except those provisions regarding Tenant's obligation to pay Base Rent or additional rent, which obligation shall commence on the Commencement Date.

ARTICLE V   ALTERATIONS AND TENANT'S PERSONAL PROPERTY

           5.1Alterations.

           (a)Landlord's Consent.  Tenant shall not make any alterations, additions, installations, substitutes or improvements ("Alterations") in and to the Premises without first obtaining Landlord's written consent.  Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its consent; provided, however, that Landlord shall have no obligation to consent to Alterations of a structural nature or Alterations that would violate the certificate of occupancy for the Premises or any applicable law, code or ordinance or the terms of any superior lease or mortgage affecting the Property.  No consent given by Landlord shall be deemed as a representation or warranty that such Alterations comply with laws, regulations and rules applicable to the Property ("Laws").  Tenant shall pay Landlord's reasonable costs of reviewing or inspecting any proposed Alterations and any other reasonable costs that may be incurred by Landlord as a result of such Alterations provided Landlord gives Tenant, if commercially reasonable, estimates of expected reasonable costs prior to incurring the expense and Tenant provides written acceptance of reasonable costs.

           (b)Workmanship.  All Alterations shall be done at reasonable times in a first-class workmanlike manner, by contractors approved by Landlord, and according to plans and specifications previously approved by Landlord.  All work shall be done in compliance with all Laws, and with all regulations of the Board of Fire Underwriters or any similar insurance body or bodies.  Tenant shall be solely responsible for the effect of any Alterations on the Building's structure and systems, notwithstanding that Landlord has consented to the Alterations, and shall reimburse Landlord within forty-five (45) days from receipt of invoice any reasonable costs incurred by Landlord by reason of any faulty work done by Tenant or its contractors.  Upon completion of Alterations, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a complete set of "as-built" plans.

           (c)Mechanics and Other Liens.  Tenant shall keep the Property and Tenant's leasehold interest therein free of any liens or claims of liens, and shall discharge any such liens within thirty  (30) days of their filing.  Before commencement of any work, Tenant's contractor shall provide payment, performance and lien indemnity bonds required by Landlord, and Tenant shall provide evidence of such insurance as Landlord may require, naming Landlord as an additional insured.  Tenant shall indemnify Landlord and hold it harmless from and against any claim, or liability including reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees arising from any work done by or at the direction of Tenant which does not arise from Landlord’s negligence or willful misconduct.

           (d)Removal of Alterations.  All Alterations affixed to the Premises shall become part thereof and remain therein at the end of the Term.  However, if Landlord gives Tenant notice, at least thirty (30) days before the end of the Term, to remove any Alterations, Tenant shall remove the Alterations, make any repair required by such removal, and restore the Premises to its original condition. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, tenant shall remove cabling and wiring it has installed, or had installed at its request, unless Landlord gives Tenant notice, at least thirty (30) days before the end of the Term, that such cabling and wiring is to remain.

           5.2Tenant's Personal Property.

           (a)In General.  Tenant may provide and install, and shall maintain in good condition, all trade fixtures, personal property, equipment, furniture and moveable partitions required in the conduct of its business in the Premises.  All of Tenant's personal property, trade fixtures, equipment, furniture, movable partitions, and any Alterations not affixed to the Premises shall remain Tenant's property ("Tenant's Property").


           (b)Payment of Taxes.  Tenant shall pay before delinquency all taxes levied against Tenant's Property and any Alterations installed by or on behalf of Tenant.  If any such taxes are levied against Landlord or its property, or if the assessed value of the Premises is increased by the inclusion of a value placed on Tenant's Property, Landlord may pay such taxes, and Tenant shall within forty-five (45) days from receipt of notice repay to Landlord the portion of such taxes resulting from such increase.

ARTICLE VI   LANDLORD'S COVENANTS

           6.1Services Provided by Landlord.

           (a)Services.  Landlord shall provide services, utilities, facilities and supplies equal in quality to those customarily provided by landlords in other Class A multi-tenant office buildings in the greater Indianapolis Metropolitan area.  Landlord shall provide reasonable additional Building operation services upon reasonable advance request of Tenant at reasonable rates from time to time established by Landlord.  Landlord shall furnish space heating and cooling as normal seasonal changes may require to provide reasonably comfortable space temperature and ventilation for occupants of the Premises under normal business operation, daily from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.), Sundays and legal state holidays excepted.  If Tenant shall require space heating or cooling outside the hours and days above specified, Landlord shall provide such service at Tenant's expense in accordance with any reasonable advance notice requirements established from time to time by Landlord.

           (b)Separately Metered Utilities.  If the Premises are separately metered as of the Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay all charges for all separately metered and separately billed gas, electricity, telephone and other utility services used, rendered or supplied upon or in connection with the Premises on a monthly basis and shall indemnify Landlord against liability or damage on such account.

           The costs of any utilities which are not separately metered shall be included as an Operating Expense. Tenant shall not use utility services in excess of amounts reasonably determined by Landlord to be within the normal range of demand for the Permitted Uses without making arrangements to reimburse Landlord for such excess use.  If Landlord has reason to believe that Tenant is using a disproportionate share of any utility which is not separately metered, Landlord may, at Landlord's election, and at Landlord's expense, conduct an engineering audit to estimate Tenant's actual use.  If such audit determines that Tenant is using more than its proportionate share of any utility. Tenant shall pay for any use above its proportionate share as additional rent.

           (c)Graphics and Signs.  Landlord shall provide, at Landlord's expense, identification of Tenant's name and suite numerals at the main entrance door to the Premises.  All signs, notices, graphics and decorations of every kind or character which are visible in or from the Common Areas or the exterior of the Premises shall be subject to Landlord's prior written approval, which Landlord shall have the right to withhold in its absolute and sole discretion; however, Tenant shall be entitled to install signage at its sole cost and expense on the center raceway of the North exterior elevation of the Building.  Tenant shall submit the plans and specifications for such signage to Landlord for Landlord's review and approval, including necessary utilities and exact location to be approved by Landlord, in Landlord's sole and absolute discretion. Tenant shall at all times comply with all laws, governmental regulations, zoning ordinances, and covenants, conditions and restrictions of record, and shall obtain all required permits in conjunction with any such signage.  Any changes to the plans and specifications for such signage, the method, the necessary utilities, the size, location, shape, or general appearance thereof shall be subject to Landlord's approval in its absolute discretion.  Tenant shall maintain all such signage in good repair.  Tenant shall remove all such signage within thirty (30) days after the termination of the Lease.   

           (d)Right to Cease Providing Services.  In case of Force Majeure or in connection with any repairs, alterations or additions to the Property or the Premises, or any other acts required of or permitted to Landlord herein, Landlord may reduce or suspend service of the Building's utilities, facilities or supplies, provided that Landlord shall use reasonable diligence to restore such services, facilities or supplies as soon as possible.  No such reduction or suspension shall constitute an actual or constructive eviction or disturbance of Tenant's use or possession of the Premises unless such services, facilities or supplies prevent Tenant’s reasonable use and enjoyment of the Premises for more than ten (10) days due to Landlord’s negligence or willful misconduct.  In such event, all Base Rent, Additional Rent and other expenses and payments due under this Lease shall be abated until Tenant’s reasonable use and enjoyment of the Premises is fully restored.

           7.2Use.

           (a)General Use.  Tenant shall use the Premises only for the Permitted Uses, and shall not use or permit the Premises to be used in violation of any law or ordinance or of any certificate of occupancy issued for the Building or the Premises, or of the Rules and Regulations.  Tenant shall not cause, maintain or permit any nuisance in, on or about the Property, or commit or allow any hazardous or excess waste in or upon the Property.  

(b)Obstructions and Exterior Displays.  Tenant shall not obstruct any of the Common Areas or any portion of the Property outside the Premises, and shall not, except as otherwise previously approved by Landlord, place or permit any signs, decorations, curtains, blinds, shades, awnings, aerials or flagpoles, or the like, that may be visible from outside the Premises.  If Landlord designates a standard window covering consistent with those used in other Class A multi-tenant office buildings located in the greater Indianapolis Metropolitan area for use throughout the Building, at Landlord’s expense, Tenant shall use this standard window covering to cover all windows in the Premises.

           (c)Floor Load.  Tenant shall not place a load upon the floor of the Premises exceeding the load per square foot such floor was designed to carry, as determined by applicable building code without the prior written approval of Landlord.

           (d)Compliance with Insurance Policies.  Tenant shall not knowingly keep or use any article in the Premises, or permit any activity therein, which is prohibited by any insurance policy covering the Building, or would result in an increase in the premiums thereunder.

           (e)Rules and Regulations.  Tenant shall observe and comply with the rules and regulations attached as Exhibit E ( the "Rules and Regulations"), and all modifications thereto as made by Landlord and put into effect from time to time.  Landlord shall not be responsible to Tenant for the violation or non-performance by any other tenant or occupant of the Building of the Rules and Regulations.

Landlord shall not incur any costs related to Tenant’s request in this Section 7.3 without providing Tenant with a written estimate for Tenant’s review and written approval.  Any assignment or subletting which does not conform with this Paragraph 7.3 shall be void and a default hereunder.

In addition to, but not in limitation of, the foregoing: in the event of a request by Tenant for Landlord's consent to a proposed assignment of the Lease or a proposed subletting Landlord, at Landlord's sole option, may cancel the Lease with respect to the area in question for the proposed term of such sublease.  Landlord shall exercise any such option by written notice given to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlord's receipt of such request from Tenant, and in each case such termination or cancellation shall take effect as of the date set forth in Tenant's proposed sublease agreement with sublessee.  If Landlord exercises any such option to terminate or cancel the Lease, Tenant shall surrender possession of the portion of the Premises to which the termination or cancellation applies on or before the date set forth in Landlord's notice, in accordance with the provisions of this Lease relating to the surrender of the Premises at expiration of the Term.  If the Lease is cancelled as to a portion of the Premises only, Base Rent after the date of such cancellation shall be abated on a pro-rata basis, as determined by Landlord, and Tenant's Percentage shall be proportionally reduced. Landlord's failure to exercise such option to terminate or cancel the Lease shall not be construed as Landlord's consent to the proposed assignment or subletting. If Landlord allows Tenant to sublease, Tenant shall remain liable for its obligations under this Lease.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord provides notice of intent to cancel or terminate the portion under consideration for the sublease, Tenant may within five (5) days from receipt of notice rescind its request to sublease and Landlord will have no right to terminate or cancel the space under consideration in the assignment or subletting request.

           7.4 Indemnity.  Except for any claims related to Landlord’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, Tenant, at its expense, shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Landlord and its agents, employees, and contractors from and against any claim, action, liability or damage including reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees of any kind arising directly from (i) Tenant's use and occupancy of the Premises or the Property or any activity done or permitted by Tenant in, on, or about the Premises or the Property, (ii) any breach or default by Tenant of its obligations under this Lease, or (iii) any negligent, tortious, or illegal act or omission of Tenant, its agents or employees.  Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant or any other person or entity for any damages arising from any act or omission of any other tenant of the Building.  The obligations in this Paragraph 7.4 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease.

           7.6Payment of Taxes.  If at any time during the Term, any political subdivision of the state in which the Property is located, or any other governmental authority, levies or assesses against Landlord a tax or excise on rents or other tax (excluding income tax), however described, including but not limited to assessments, charges or fees required to be paid, by way of substitution for or as a supplement to real estate taxes, or any other tax on rent or profits in substitution for or as a supplement to a tax levied against the Property, Building or Landlord's personal property, then Tenant will pay to Landlord as additional rent its proportionate share based on Tenant's Percentage of said tax or excise consistent with the provisions in Section 3.2.

           (b)Insured Casualty.  If the casualty results from a risk, the loss to Landlord from which is fully covered by insurance maintained by Landlord or for Landlord's benefit (except for any deductible amount), it shall be an "Insured Casualty" and governed by this Paragraph 9.1(b).  In such event, if the Damage Notice states that the repairs can be completed within the Repair Period without the payment of overtime or other premiums, then Landlord shall promptly proceed to make the repairs, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect, and Base Rent and additional rent shall be reduced, during the period between the casualty and completion of the repairs, in proportion to the portion of the Premises that is inaccessible or unusable during that period and which is, in fact, not utilized by Tenant.  Base Rent shall not be reduced by reason of any portion of the Premises being unusable or inaccessible for a period of five (5) business days or less.  If the Damage Notice states that the repairs cannot, in Landlord's estimate, be completed within the Repair Period without the payment of overtime or other premiums, then either party may, terminate this Lease by written notice given to the other within thirty (30) days after the giving of the Damage Notice.  If either party elects to terminate this Lease, the Lease shall terminate as of the date of the occurrence of such damage or destruction and Tenant shall vacate the Premises five (5) business days from the date of the written notice terminating the Lease.  If neither party so terminates, then this Lease shall remain in effect, Landlord shall make repairs, and Base Rent shall be proportionately reduced as set forth above during the period when the Premises is inaccessible or unusable and is not used by Tenant.

           (a)Eminent Domain in General.  If the whole of the Premises, or so much of the Premises as to render the balance unusable by Tenant, shall be taken or appropriated under the power of eminent domain or condemnation (a "Taking"), either Landlord or Tenant may terminate this Lease and the termination date shall be the date of the Order of Taking, or the date possession is taken by the Taking authority, whichever is earlier.  If any part of the Property is the subject of a Taking and such Taking materially affects the normal operation of the Building or Common Areas or a Taking affects the Tenant’s ability to use the Premises, a party may elect to terminate this Lease.  A sale by Landlord under threat of a Taking shall constitute a Taking for the purpose of this Paragraph 9.2.  No award for any partial or entire Taking shall be apportioned.  Landlord shall receive (subject to the rights of Landlord's mortgagees) and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any award which may be made and any other proceeds in connection with such Taking, together with all rights of Tenant to such award or proceeds, including, without limitation, any award or compensation for the value of all or any part of the leasehold estate; provided that nothing contained in this Paragraph 9.2(a) shall be deemed to give Landlord any interest in or to require Tenant to assign to Landlord any separate award made to Tenant for (i) the taking of Tenant's Property, or (ii) interruption of or damage to Tenant's business, or (iii) Tenant's moving and relocation costs.


(b)Reduction in Base Rent.  In the event of a Taking which does not result in a termination of the Lease, Base Rent shall be proportionately reduced based on the portion of the Premises rendered unusable, and Landlord shall restore the Premises or the Building to the extent of available proceeds or awards from such Taking.  Landlord shall not be required to repair or restore any damage to Tenant's Property or any Alterations.

           11.15Notice of Landlord's Default.  The failure by Landlord to observe or perform any of the express or implied covenants or provisions of this Lease to be observed or performed by Landlord shall not constitute a default by Landlord unless such failure shall continue for a period of more than thirty (30) days after written notice thereof from Tenant to Landlord specifying Landlord's default; provided, however, that if the nature of Landlord's default is such that more than thirty (30) days are reasonably required for its cure, then Landlord shall not be deemed to be in default if Landlord commences such cure within said thirty (30) day period and diligently prosecutes such cure to completion and completes such cure no later than sixty (60) days from the date of such notice.  Tenant shall, simultaneously with delivery to Landlord, provide written notice specifying the Landlord default to the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises whose name and address have been furnished to Tenant in writing.  Except as otherwise expressly stated to the contrary herein, in the event of a default by Landlord, Tenant shall have the right to pursue any of its remedies provided for at law or in equity, including the right to terminate this Lease, an injunction and specific performance.
