(d)    Project Operating Expenses shall mean all Operating Expenses that are not included as Phase Operating Expenses (defined below) and that are not either Building Operating Expenses or operating expenses directly and separately identifiable to the operation, maintenance or repair of any other building located in the Project, but Project Operating Expenses includes operating expenses allocable to any areas of the Building or any other building during such time as such areas are made available by Landlord for the general common use or benefit of all tenants of the Project, and their employees and invitees, or the public, as such areas currently exist and as they may be changed from time to time;
(e)    Building Operating Expenses shall mean Operating Expenses that are directly and separately identifiable to each building in which the Premises or part thereof is located;
(f)    Phase Operating Expenses shall mean Operating Expenses that Landlord may allocate to a Phase as directly and separately identifiable to all buildings located in the Phase

14


(including but not limited to the Building) and may include Project Operating Expenses that are separately identifiable to a Phase;
(g)    Landlord shall have the right to reasonably allocate a particular item or portion of Operating Expenses as any one of Project Operating Expenses, Building Operating Expenses or Phase Operating Expenses; however, in no event shall any portion of Building Operating Expenses, Project Operating Expenses or Phase Operating Expenses be assessed or counted against Tenant more than once; and.
(h)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 4.01, as to each specific category of Operating Expense which one or more tenants of the Building either pays directly to third parties or specifically reimburses to Landlord (for example, separately contracted janitorial services or property taxes directly reimbursed to Landlord), then, on a category by category basis, the amount of Operating Expenses for the affected period shall be adjusted as follows: (1) all such tenant payments with respect to such category of expense and all of Landlord’s costs reimbursed thereby shall be excluded from Operating Expenses and Tenant’s Building Share, Tenant’s Phase Share or Tenant’s Project Share, as the case may be, for such category of Operating Expense shall be adjusted by excluding the square footage of all such tenants, and (2) if Tenant pays or directly reimburses Landlord for such category of Operating Expense, such category of Operating Expense shall be excluded from the determination of Operating Expenses for the purposes of this Lease.
4.02
RENT ADJUSTMENTS
Tenant shall pay to Landlord Rent Adjustments with respect to each Adjustment Year as follows:
(a)    The Rent Adjustment Deposit shall be paid monthly during the Term with the payment of Monthly Base Rent, except the first installment which shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord concurrently with execution of this Lease. The Rent Adjustment Deposit represents, on a monthly basis, Tenant’s Share of Landlord’s estimate of Operating Expenses, as described in Section 4.01, for the applicable Adjustment Year (or portion thereof); and
(b)    Any Rent Adjustments due in excess of the Rent Adjustment Deposits in accordance with Section 4.03.
4.03
STATEMENT OF LANDLORD
Within one hundred twenty (120) days after the end of each calendar year or as soon thereafter as reasonably possible, Landlord will furnish Tenant a statement (“Landlord’s Statement”) showing the following:
(a)    Operating Expenses for the last Adjustment Year showing in reasonable detail the actual Operating Expenses categorized among Project Operating Expenses, Building Operating

15


Expenses and Phase Operating Expenses for such period and Tenant’s Share of each as described in Section 4.01 above;

(c)    Any change in the Rent Adjustment Deposit due monthly in the current Adjustment Year, including the amount or revised amount due for months preceding any such change pursuant to Landlord’s Statement.
Tenant shall pay to Landlord within twenty (20) days after receipt of such statement any amounts for Rent Adjustments then due in accordance with Landlord’s Statement. Any amounts due from Landlord to Tenant pursuant to this Section shall be credited to the Rent Adjustment Deposit next coming due, or refunded to Tenant if the Term has already expired provided Tenant is not in default hereunder. No interest or penalties shall accrue on any amounts which Landlord is obligated to credit or refund to Tenant by reason of this Section 4.03. Landlord’s failure to deliver Landlord’s Statement or to compute the amount of the Rent Adjustments shall not constitute a waiver by Landlord of its right to deliver such items nor constitute a waiver or release of Tenant’s obligations to pay such amounts, provided Landlord’s Statement is delivered within three (3) years after the end of the Adjustment Year to which the Landlord’s Statement applies. The Rent Adjustment Deposit shall be credited against Rent Adjustments due for the applicable Adjustment Year. During the last complete calendar year or during any partial calendar year in which the Lease terminates, Landlord may include in the Rent Adjustment Deposit its estimate of Rent Adjustments which may not be finally determined until after the termination of this Lease, and Landlord shall provide Tenant with a final Landlord’s Statement within sixty (60) days after the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease. Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent Adjustments survives the expiration or termination of the Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the sum of Monthly Base Rent and the Rent Adjustments be less than the Monthly Base Rent payable.
4.04
BOOKS AND RECORDS
Landlord shall maintain books and records showing Operating Expenses and Taxes in accordance with sound accounting and management practices, consistently applied. The Tenant or its representative (which representative shall be a certified public accountant licensed to do business in the state in which the Property is located and whose primary business is certified public accounting) shall have the right, for a period of forty-five (45) days following the date upon which Landlord’s Statement is delivered to Tenant, to examine the Landlord’s books and records with respect to the items in the foregoing statement of Operating Expenses and Taxes during normal business hours, upon written notice, delivered at least three (3) business days in advance. If Tenant does not object in writing to Landlord’s Statement within sixty (60) days of Tenant’s receipt thereof, specifying the nature of the item in dispute and the reasons therefor, then Landlord’s Statement shall be considered final and accepted by Tenant. Any amount due to

16


the Landlord as shown on Landlord’s Statement, whether or not disputed by Tenant as provided herein shall be paid by Tenant when due as provided above, without prejudice to any such written exception.
4.05
TENANT OR LEASE SPECIFIC TAXES
In addition to Monthly Base Rent, Rent Adjustments, Rent Adjustment Deposits and other charges to be paid by Tenant, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, upon demand, any and all taxes payable by Landlord (other than federal or state inheritance, general income, gift or estate taxes) whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties hereto: (a) upon, allocable to, or measured by the Rent payable hereunder, including any gross receipts tax or excise tax levied by any governmental or taxing body with respect to the receipt of such rent; or (b) upon or with respect to the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any portion thereof; or (c) upon the measured value of Tenant’s personal property or trade fixtures located in the Premises or in any storeroom or any other place in the Premises or the Property, or the areas used in connection with the operation of the Property, it being the intention of Landlord and Tenant that, to the extent possible, Tenant shall cause such taxes on personal property or trade fixtures to be billed to and paid directly by Tenant; (d) resulting from Landlord Work, Tenant Work or Tenant Alterations to the Premises, whether title thereto is in Landlord or Tenant; or (e) upon this transaction. Taxes paid by Tenant pursuant to this Section 4.05 shall not be included in any computation of Taxes as part of Operating Expenses.
ARTICLE 5
SECURITY
(a)    Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, shall provide Landlord, simultaneously with Tenant’s execution and delivery of this Lease to Landlord, with the “Letter of Credit” (defined below) as security (“Security”) for the full and faithful performance by Tenant of each and every term, provision, covenant, and condition of this Lease. If Tenant fails timely to perform any of the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions of this Lease or any other document executed by Tenant in connection with this Lease, including, but not limited to, the payment of Rent or the repair of damage to the Premises caused by Tenant (excluding normal wear and tear), then Landlord may use, apply, or retain the whole or any part of the Security for the payment of any Rent not paid when due, for the cost of repairing such damage, for the cost of cleaning the Premises, for the payment of any other sum which Landlord may expend or may be required to expend by reason of Tenant’s failure to perform, and otherwise for compensation of Landlord for any other loss or damage to Landlord occasioned by Tenant’s failure to perform, including, but not limited to, any loss of future Rent and any damage or deficiency in the reletting of the Premises (whether such loss, damages or deficiency accrue before or after summary proceedings or other reentry by Landlord) and the amount of the unpaid past Rent, future Rent loss, and all other losses, costs and damages, that Landlord would be entitled to

17


recover if Landlord were to pursue recovery under Section 11.02(b) or (c) of this Lease or California Civil Code Section 1951.2 or 1951.4 (and any supplements, amendments, replacements and substitutions thereof and therefor from time to time). If Landlord so uses, applies or retains all or part of the Security, Tenant shall within five (5) business days after demand pay or deliver to Landlord in immediately available funds the sum necessary to replace the amount used, applied or retained, except as specified in (d) below. If Tenant has fully and faithfully performed and observed all of Tenant’s obligations under the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions of this Lease, the Security (except any amount retained for application by Landlord as provided herein) shall be returned or paid over to Tenant no later than forty-five (45) days after the latest of: (i) the Termination Date; (ii) the removal of Tenant from the Premises; (iii) the surrender of the Premises by Tenant to Landlord in accordance with this Lease; or (iv) the date Rent Adjustments owed pursuant to this Lease have been computed by Landlord and paid by Tenant. Provided, however, in no event shall any such return be construed as an admission by Landlord that Tenant has performed all of its obligations hereunder.
(b)    The Security, whether in the form of cash, Letter of Credit and/or Letter of Credit Proceeds (defined below), shall not be deemed an advance rent deposit or an advance payment of any kind, or a measure of Landlord’s damages with respect to Tenant’s failure to perform, nor shall any action or inaction of Landlord with respect to it or its use or application be a waiver of, or bar or defense to, enforcement of any right or remedy of Landlord. Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security separate from its general funds and shall not have any fiduciary duties or other duties (except as set forth in this Section) concerning the Security. Tenant shall not be entitled to any interest on the Security. In the event of any sale, lease or transfer of Landlord’s interest in the Building, Landlord shall have the right to transfer the Security, or balance thereof, to the vendee, transferee or lessee and any such transfer shall release Landlord from all liability for the return of the Security. Tenant thereafter shall look solely to such vendee, transferee or lessee for the return or payment of the Security. Tenant shall not assign or encumber or attempt to assign or encumber the Security or any interest in it and Landlord shall not be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance, and regardless of one or more assignments of this Lease, Landlord may return the Security to the original Tenant without liability to any assignee. Tenant hereby waives any and all rights of Tenant under the provisions of Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code, and any and all rights of Tenant under all provisions of law, now or hereafter enacted, regarding security deposits.
(c)    If Tenant fails timely to perform any obligation under this Article Five, such breach shall constitute a Default by Tenant under this Lease without any right to or requirement of any further notice or cure period under any other Article of this Lease, except such notice and cure period expressly provided under this Article Five.
(d)    As used herein, “Letter of Credit” shall mean an unconditional, irrevocable sight draft letter of credit issued, presentable and payable at the San Francisco, California office of a

18


major national bank satisfactory to Landlord in its sole discretion (the “Bank”), naming Landlord as beneficiary, in an amount equal to Six Hundred Ninety Five Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen and 00/100 Dollars ($695,215.00). The Letter of Credit shall provide:
(e)    that Landlord may make partial and multiple draws thereunder, up to the face amount thereof, and that Landlord may draw upon the Letter of Credit up to the full amount thereof, as determined by Landlord, and the Bank will pay to Landlord the amount of such draw upon receipt by the Bank of a sight draft signed by Landlord without requirement for any additional documents or statements by Landlord; and (ii) that, in the event of assignment or other transfer of either Landlord’s interest in this Lease or of any interest in Landlord (including, without limitation, consolidations, mergers, reorganizations or other entity changes), the Letter of Credit shall be freely transferable by Landlord, without charge and without recourse, to the assignee or transferee of such interest and the Bank shall confirm the same to Landlord and such assignee or transferee. The Letter of Credit shall be in the form attached as Exhibit E hereto. Landlord may (but shall not be required to) draw upon the Letter of Credit and use the proceeds therefrom (the “Letter of Credit Proceeds”) or any portion thereof in any manner Landlord is permitted to use the Security under this Article Five. In the event Landlord draws upon the Letter of Credit and elects not to terminate the Lease, but to use the Letter of Credit Proceeds, then within five (5) business days after Landlord gives Tenant written notice specifying the amount of the Letter of Credit Proceeds so utilized by Landlord, Tenant shall immediately deliver to Landlord an amendment to the Letter of Credit or a replacement Letter of Credit in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the then-required amount of the Letter of Credit. Tenant’s failure to deliver such amendment or replacement of the Letter of Credit to Landlord within five (5) business days after Landlord’s notice shall constitute a Default by Tenant under this Lease. The Letter of Credit shall have an initial term of no longer than one (1) year, shall be “evergreen”, and shall be extended, reissued or replaced by Tenant, in each case at least thirty (30) days prior to its expiration in a manner that fully complies with the requirements of this Article Five, so that in all events the Letter of Credit required hereunder shall be in full force and effect continuously until the date (the “L/C Expiration Date”) for return of the Security described in Subsection (a) above. Any advice from the issuer that it intends to withdraw or not extend the Letter of Credit prior to any scheduled annual expiration or the L/C Expiration Date, or in the event that Landlord determines, in its good faith judgment, that the issuing Bank is no longer satisfactory to remain as the issuer of the Letter of Credit, shall entitle Landlord to, on ten (10) days prior notice, to require Tenant to deliver to Landlord, a replacement Letter of Credit on the same terms and conditions set forth in this Article Five, or if Tenant fails to provide Landlord with a replacement Letter of Credit during such ten (10) day period, draw upon the Letter of Credit.
(f)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Landlord agrees that the Letter of Credit held as part of the Security pursuant to this Section shall be reduced by Three Hundred Forty-Seven Thousand Six Hundred Seven and 50/100 Dollars ($347,607.50) (a “Reduction”) on the first day of the 37th month of the Term. The Reduction is expressly subject

19


to the following: (i) prior to the anniversary date on which a Reduction is to be granted, there has occurred no default of Tenant beyond any applicable notice and grace period, and in the event such a default has occurred, the right to the pending Reduction is waived; (ii) on the date on which such Reduction is to be granted there exists no act or omission on the part of Tenant which, with the passage of time or the giving of notice, or both would constitute a default of Tenant, in which event the right to that Reduction is waived (until the default is timely cured); (iii) on or immediately after the date on which a Reduction is to be granted (provided Tenant has qualified for same pursuant to this Section), Tenant has delivered to Landlord an acceptable (pursuant to this Section) substitute Letter of Credit or amendment to the existing Letter of Credit in such appropriately reduced amount, (iv) on the date of the Reduction, Tenant has a minimum bank balance of Five Million and 00/100 Dollars ($5,000,000.00) as evidenced by a bank statement; and (v) Tenant has shown three (3) months of profitability in the months immediately preceding the Reduction in a financial statement certified by its chief financial officer. Landlord agrees, in the instance of such substitute Letter of Credit, to surrender the replaced Letter of Credit promptly after receipt of the substitute.

6.02
TENANT TO OBTAIN & PAY DIRECTLY

Tenant shall contract directly with the providing companies for such utilities and services.
(b)    Notwithstanding any provision of the Lease to the contrary, without, in each instance, the prior written consent of Landlord, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, as more particularly provided in Article Nine, Tenant shall not: (i) make any alterations or additions to the electric or gas equipment or systems or other Building systems. Tenant’s use of electric current shall at no time exceed the capacity of the wiring, feeders and risers providing electric current to the Premises or the Building. The consent of Landlord to the installation of electric equipment shall not relieve Tenant from the obligation to limit usage of electricity to no more than such capacity.
6.03
TELEPHONE SERVICES

20


All telegraph, telephone, and communication connections which Tenant may desire outside the Premises shall be subject to Landlord’s prior written approval, in Landlord’s sole discretion, and the location of all wires and the work in connection therewith shall be performed by contractors approved by Landlord and shall be subject to the direction of Landlord, except that such approval is not required as to Tenant’s cabling from the Premises in a route designated by Landlord to any telephone cabinet or panel provided for Tenant’s connection to the telephone cable serving the Building, so long as Tenant’s equipment does not require connections different than or additional to those to the telephone cabinet or panel provided. As to any such connections or work outside the Premises requiring Landlord’s approval, Landlord reserves the right to designate and control the entity or entities providing telephone or other communication cable installation, removal, repair and maintenance outside the Premises and to restrict and control access to telephone cabinets or panels. In the event Landlord designates a particular vendor or vendors to provide such cable installation, removal, repair and maintenance for the Building, Tenant agrees to abide by and participate in such program. Tenant shall be responsible for and shall pay all costs incurred in connection with the installation of telephone cables and communication wiring in the Premises, including any hook-up, access and maintenance fees related to the installation of such wires and cables in the Premises and the commencement of service therein, and the maintenance thereafter of such wire and cables; and there shall be included in Operating Expenses for the Building all installation, removal, hook-up or maintenance costs incurred by Landlord in connection with telephone cables and communication wiring serving the Building which are not allocable to any individual users of such service but are allocable to the Building generally. If Tenant fails to maintain all telephone cables and communication wiring in the Premises and such failure affects or interferes with the operation or maintenance of any other telephone cables or communication wiring serving the Building, Landlord or any vendor hired by Landlord may enter into and upon the Premises forthwith and perform such repairs, restorations or alterations as Landlord deems necessary in order to eliminate any such interference (and Landlord may recover from Tenant all of Landlord’s costs in connection therewith). No later than the Termination Date, Tenant agrees to remove all telephone cables and communication wiring installed by Tenant for and during Tenant’s occupancy, which Landlord shall request Tenant to remove. Tenant agrees that neither Landlord nor any of its agents or employees shall be liable to Tenant, or any of Tenant’s employees, agents, customers or invitees or anyone claiming through, by or under Tenant, for any damages, injuries, losses, expenses, claims or causes of action because of any interruption, diminution, delay or discontinuance at any time for any reason in the furnishing of any telephone or other communication service to the Premises and the Building.
6.04
FAILURE OR INTERRUPTION OF UTILITY OR SERVICE
To the extent that any equipment or machinery furnished or maintained by Landlord outside the Premises is used in the delivery of utilities directly obtained by Tenant pursuant to Section 6.02 and breaks down or ceases to function properly, Landlord shall use reasonable diligence to repair same promptly. In the event of any failure, stoppage or interruption of, or change in, any utilities or services supplied by Landlord which are not directly obtained by Tenant, Landlord shall use

21


reasonable diligence to have service promptly resumed. In either event covered by the preceding two sentences, if the cause of any such failure, stoppage or interruption of, or change in, utilities or services is within the control of a public utility, other public or quasi-public entity, or utility provider outside Landlord’s control, notification to such utility or entity of such failure, stoppage or interruption and request to remedy the same shall constitute “reasonable diligence” by Landlord to have service promptly resumed. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section to the contrary, in the event of any failure, stoppage or interruption of, or change in, any utility or other service furnished to the Premises or the Project resulting from any cause, including changes in service provider or Landlord’s compliance with any voluntary or similar governmental or business guidelines now or hereafter published or any requirements now or hereafter established by any governmental agency, board or bureau having jurisdiction over the operation of the Property: (a) Landlord shall not be liable for, and Tenant shall not be entitled to, any abatement or reduction of Rent; (b) no such failure, stoppage, or interruption of any such utility or service shall constitute an eviction of Tenant or relieve Tenant of the obligation to perform any covenant or agreement of this Lease to be performed by Tenant; (c) Landlord shall not be in breach of this Lease nor be liable to Tenant for damages or otherwise; provided however, to the extent that Landlord’s gross negligence or willful and wrongful act causes an interruption of services that Landlord is obligated to provide to the Premises under this Lease and Tenant is thereby prevented from using the Premises and does not in fact use the Premises for twenty (20) consecutive business days after Tenant has given Landlord written notice of the interruption and inability to use the Premises, then Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall be abated commencing as of the first day after the end of such period and continuing so long as Tenant is prevented from and in fact does not use the Premises.
6.05
CHOICE OF SERVICE PROVIDER
Tenant acknowledges that Landlord may, at Landlord’s sole option, to the extent permitted by applicable law, elect to change, from time to time, the company or companies which provide services (including electrical service, gas service, water, telephone and technical services) to the Property, the Premises and/or its occupants provided that Landlord shall provide Tenant with reasonable advance notice of the change. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Lease, Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has not and does not make any representations or warranties concerning the identity or identities of the company or companies which provide services to the Property and the Premises or its occupants and Tenant acknowledges that the choice of service providers and matters concerning the engagement and termination thereof shall be solely that of Landlord. The foregoing provision is not intended to modify, amend, change or otherwise derogate from any provision of this Lease concerning the nature or type of service to be provided or any specific information concerning the amount thereof to be provided. Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord and each of its service providers in connection with any change in service or provider.
6.06
SIGNAGE

22


Tenant shall not install any signage within the Project, the Building or the Premises without obtaining the prior written approval of Landlord, and Tenant shall be responsible for procurement, installation, maintenance and removal of any such signage installed by Tenant, and all costs in connection therewith, provided, however that Landlord shall be responsible for maintenance of the monument sign and the costs of such maintenance by Landlord shall be included in the Operating Expenses. Any such signage shall comply with Landlord’s current Project signage criteria and all Laws.

To the extent Tenant shall occupy the entire Building or an entire floor in the Building, all ADA Title III requirements relating to the restrooms, elevator lobbies and corridors on such floor shall be the responsibility of Tenant. In such event, all matters related to “life safety” on such floor shall also be the responsibility of Tenant. Tenant shall be solely responsible for requirements under Title I of the ADA relating to Tenant’s employees. Notwithstanding any provision of the foregoing to the contrary, Landlord shall perform and be responsible for any ADA Title III compliance outside the Building, including the exterior Common Areas of the Building (the cost of which shall be included in Operating Expenses, unless expressly excluded from the definition of Operating Expenses), but Landlord shall not be obligated to pay for any compliance outside the Building to the extent that Tenant is responsible for such compliance pursuant to item (d) above.
(c)    Landlord and Tenant agree to cooperate and use commercially reasonable efforts to participate in traffic management programs generally applicable to businesses located in or about the area and Tenant shall encourage and support van and car pooling by office workers and service employees to the extent reasonably permitted by the requirements of Tenant’s business.

(d)    Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord and to comply with any and all guidelines or controls concerning energy management imposed upon Landlord by federal or state governmental organizations or by any energy conservation association to which Landlord is a party or which is applicable to the Building.
7.02
HAZARDOUS MATERIAL
(a)    Tenant shall not use, generate, manufacture, produce, store, handle, release, discharge, or dispose of, on, under or about the Premises or any part of the Project, or transport to or from the Premises or any part of the Project, any Hazardous Material or allow any “Tenant Parties” (defined below) to do so, except as expressly permitted below, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which may be withheld in Landlord’s sole discretion. Upon demand, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in evaluating any such request. For purposes of this Lease, “Tenant Parties” shall mean all occupants or users of the Premises permitted or suffered by Tenant, or the employees, servants, agents, contractors,

24


customers or invitees of Tenant or of any such occupants or users. Provided that the Premises are used only for the uses specified in Section 1.01 and Section 7.01 above, the foregoing prohibition shall not prohibit Tenant from using and storing in, and transporting to and from, the Premises, the types and amounts of Hazardous Material as specified on Exhibit F hereto and by this reference incorporated herein (“Permitted Hazardous Material”) and insignificant amounts of Hazardous Material typically used in general business office applications (to the extent the Premises is used for general offices) so long as
(b)    such substances are used in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions therefor and all applicable Laws,
(c)    such substances are not used or disposed of in or about the Building or the Project in a manner which would constitute a release or discharge thereof, and (iii) all Hazardous Material is removed from the Building and the Project by Tenant no later than the Termination Date. Tenant shall, within fifteen (15) days after demand therefor, deliver to Landlord a written list identifying any Hazardous Material then maintained by Tenant in the Building, the use of each such Hazardous Material so maintained by Tenant together with written certification by Tenant stating, in substance, that neither Tenant nor any Tenant Parties has released or discharged any Hazardous Material in or about the Building or the Project. Tenant shall, within fifteen (15) days after demand therefor, deliver to Landlord a copy of: (x) all permits, licenses and other governmental and regulatory approvals with respect to the use, generation, manufacture, production, storage, handling, release, discharge, removal and disposal by Tenant or Any of the Tenant Parties of Hazardous Material at the Project; and (y) each Hazardous Material management plan or similar document (“Plan(s)”) with respect to use, generation, manufacture, production, storage, handling, release, discharge, removal or disposal of Hazardous Material by Tenant or any of the Tenant Parties necessary to comply with Environmental Laws or other Laws prepared by or on behalf of Tenant or any of the Tenant Parties (whether or not required to be submitted to a governmental agency). Tenant shall comply with all Environmental Laws pertaining to Tenant’s occupancy and use of the Premises and concerning the proper storage, handling and disposal of any Hazardous Material introduced to the Premises, the Building or the Property by Tenant or any Tenant Parties. Landlord shall comply with all Environmental Laws applicable to the Property other than those to be complied with by Tenant pursuant to the preceding sentence. In the event that Tenant is notified of any investigation or violation of any Environmental Law arising from Tenant’s activities at the Premises, Tenant shall immediately deliver to Landlord a copy of such notice. In such event or in the event Landlord reasonably believes that a violation of Environmental Law exists, Landlord may conduct such tests and studies relating to compliance by Tenant with Environmental Laws or the alleged presence of Hazardous Material upon the Premises as Landlord deems desirable. If such tests and studies determine that Tenant is in violation of this Section 7.02 or any Environmental Law, then Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the costs of such tests and studies. To the extent permitted by Law, Tenant hereby indemnifies, and agrees to protect, defend and hold the Indemnitees harmless, against any and all actions, claims, demands, liability, costs and expenses, including attorneys’

25


fees and expenses for the defense thereof, arising out of any and all of (i) the introduction, use, discharge or release of any Hazardous Material into, in or about the Project by Tenant or any Tenant Parties, including any injury to or death of persons or damage to or destruction of property resulting therefrom, and (ii) any failure of Tenant or any Tenant Parties to observe the covenants of this Section 7.02. In case of any action or proceeding brought against the Indemnitees by reason of any such claim, upon notice from Landlord, Tenant covenants to defend such action or proceeding by counsel chosen by Landlord, in Landlord’s sole discretion. Landlord reserves the right to settle, compromise or dispose of any and all actions, claims and demands related to the foregoing indemnity. If any Hazardous Material is released, discharged or disposed of on or about the Property and such release, discharge or disposal is not caused by Tenant or any Tenant Parties, such release, discharge or disposal shall be deemed casualty damage under Article Fourteen to the extent that the Premises are affected thereby; in such case, Landlord and Tenant shall have the obligations and rights respecting such casualty damage provided under such Article.
(d)    The right to use and store in, and transport to and from, the Premises the Permitted Hazardous Material is personal to Guardant Health, Inc. and may not be assigned or otherwise transferred by Guardant Health, Inc. without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent may be withheld in Landlord’s sole discretion. Any consent by Landlord pursuant to Article Ten to an assignment, transfer, subletting, mortgage, pledge, hypothecation or encumbrance of this Lease, and any interest therein or right or privilege appurtenant thereto, shall not constitute consent by Landlord to the use or storage at, or transportation to, the Premises of any Hazardous Material (including a Permitted Hazardous Material) by any such assignee, sublessee or transferee unless Landlord expressly agrees otherwise in writing. Any consent by Landlord to the use or storage at, or transportation to or from the Premises, of any Hazardous Material (including a Permitted Hazardous Material) by an assignee, sublessee or transferee of Tenant shall not constitute a waiver of Landlord’s right to refuse such consent as to any subsequent assignee or transferee.
(e)    Tenant acknowledges that the sewer piping at the Project is made of ABS plastic. Accordingly, without Landlord’s prior written consent, which may be given or withheld in Landlord’s sole discretion, only ordinary domestic sewage is permitted to be put into the drains at the Premises. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL Tenant EVER DEPOSIT ANY ESTERS OR KETONES (USUALLY FOUND IN SOLVENTS TO CLEAN UP PETROLEUM PRODUCTS) IN THE DRAINS AT THE PREMISES. If Tenant desires to put any substances other than ordinary domestic sewage into the drains, it shall first submit to Landlord a complete description of each such substance, including its chemical composition, and a sample of such substance suitable for laboratory testing. Landlord shall promptly determine whether or not the substance can be deposited into the drains and its determination shall be absolutely binding on Tenant. Upon demand, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for expenses incurred by Landlord in making such determination. If any substances not so approved hereunder are deposited in the drains in Tenant’s Premises, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for all damages resulting

26


therefrom, including but not limited to all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in repairing or replacing the piping so damaged.
(f)    Upon any violation of any of the foregoing covenants, in addition to all remedies available to a landlord against the defaulting tenant, including but not limited to those set forth in Article Eleven of this Lease, Tenant expressly agrees that upon any such violation Landlord may, at its option (i) immediately terminate this Lease by giving written notice to Tenant of such termination, or (ii) continue this Lease in effect until compliance by Tenant with its clean-up and removal covenant (notwithstanding the expiration of the Term). No action by Landlord hereunder shall impair the obligations of Tenant pursuant to this Section 7.02.
7.03
LANDLORD ACCESS TO PREMISES; APPROVALS
(a)    Tenant shall permit Landlord to erect, use and maintain pipes, ducts, wiring and conduits in and through the Premises, so long as Tenant’s use, layout or design of the Premises or access thereto is not materially affected or altered. Landlord or Landlord’s agents shall have the right to enter upon the Premises in the event of an emergency, or to inspect the Premises, to perform janitorial and other services (if any), to conduct safety and other testing in the Premises and to make such repairs, alterations, improvements or additions to the Premises or the Building or other parts of the Property as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable (including all alterations, improvements and additions in connection with a change in service provider or providers). Janitorial and cleaning services (if any) shall be performed after normal business hours. Any entry or work by Landlord may be during normal business hours and Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that any entry or work shall not materially interfere with Tenant’s occupancy of, or access to, the Premises.
(b)    Advance notice shall not be required for entry to perform routine janitorial and cleaning services or for entry in the event of an emergency or urgent situation, as reasonably determined by Landlord, but any other entry or work by Landlord shall be upon at least one (1) business day prior written notice to Tenant, which written notice may include notices e-mailed to Tenant’s on-site manager at the Premises. If Tenant shall not be personally present to permit an entry into the Premises when for any reason an entry therein shall be necessary or permissible, Landlord (or Landlord’s agents), after attempting to notify Tenant (unless Landlord believes an emergency situation exists) as set forth in this Paragraph, may enter the Premises without rendering Landlord or its agents liable therefor, and without relieving Tenant of any obligations under this Lease.
(c)    Landlord may enter the Premises for the purpose of conducting such inspections, tests and studies as Landlord may reasonably deem desirable or necessary to confirm Tenant’s compliance with all Laws and Environmental Laws or for other purposes necessary in Landlord’s reasonable judgment to ensure the sound condition of the Property and the systems serving the Property. Landlord’s rights under this Section 7.03 (c) are for Landlord’s own protection only, and Landlord has not, and shall not be deemed to have assumed, any responsibility to Tenant or

27


any other party as a result of the exercise or non-exercise of such rights, for compliance with Laws or Environmental Laws or for the accuracy or sufficiency of any item or the quality or suitability of any item for its intended use.
(d)    Landlord may do any of the foregoing, or undertake any of the inspection or work described in the preceding paragraphs without such action constituting an actual or constructive eviction of Tenant, in whole or in part, or giving rise to an abatement of Rent by reason of loss or interruption of business of the Tenant, or otherwise.
(e)    The review, approval or consent of Landlord with respect to any item required or permitted under this Lease is for Landlord’s own protection only, and Landlord has not, and shall not be deemed to have assumed, any responsibility to Tenant or any other party, as a result of the exercise or non-exercise of such rights, for compliance with Laws or Environmental Laws or for the accuracy or sufficiency of any item or the quality or suitability of any item for its intended use.
7.04
QUIET ENJOYMENT
Landlord covenants, in lieu of any implied covenant of quiet possession or quiet enjoyment, that so long as Tenant is in compliance with the covenants and conditions set forth in this Lease, Tenant shall have the right to quiet enjoyment of the Premises without hindrance or interference from Landlord or those claiming through Landlord, and subject to the covenants and conditions set forth in the Lease and to the rights of any Mortgagee or ground lessor.

Tenant will maintain the Premises, and will leave the Premises upon termination of this Lease, in a safe, clean, neat and sanitary condition.

9.01
TENANT ALTERATIONS
(a)    The following provisions shall apply to the completion of any Tenant Alterations:
(1)    Tenant shall not, except as provided herein, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, make or cause to be made any Tenant Alterations in or to the Premises or any Property systems serving the Premises. Prior to making any Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall give Landlord ten (10) days prior written notice (or such earlier notice as would be necessary pursuant to applicable Law) to permit Landlord sufficient time to post appropriate notices of non-responsibility. Subject to all other requirements of this Article Nine, Tenant may undertake Decoration work without Landlord’s prior written consent. Tenant shall furnish

29


Landlord with the names and addresses of all contractors and subcontractors and copies of all contracts. All Tenant Alterations shall be completed at such time and in such manner as Landlord may from time to time reasonably designate, and only by contractors or mechanics approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, provided, however, that Landlord may, in its sole discretion, specify the engineers and contractors to perform all work relating to the Building’s systems (including the mechanical, heating, plumbing, security, ventilating, air-conditioning, electrical, communication and the fire and life safety systems in the Building). The contractors, mechanics and engineers who may be used are further limited to those whose work will not cause or threaten to cause disharmony or interference with Landlord or other tenants in the Building and their respective agents and contractors performing work in or about the Building. Landlord may further condition its consent upon Tenant furnishing to Landlord and Landlord approving prior to the commencement of any work or delivery of materials to the Premises related to the Tenant Alterations such of the following as specified by Landlord: architectural plans and specifications, opinions from Landlord’s engineers stating that the Tenant Alterations will not in any way adversely affect the Building’s systems, necessary permits and licenses, certificates of insurance, and such other documents in such form reasonably requested by Landlord. Landlord may, in the exercise of reasonable judgment, request that Tenant provide Landlord with appropriate evidence of Tenant’s ability to complete and pay for the completion of the Tenant Alterations such as a performance bond or letter of credit. Upon completion of the Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord an as-built mylar and digitized (if available) set of plans and specifications for the Tenant Alterations.
(2)    Tenant shall pay the cost of all Tenant Alterations and the cost of decorating the Premises and any work to the Property occasioned thereby.

Upon completion of Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall furnish Landlord with contractors’ affidavits and full and final waivers of lien and receipted bills covering all labor and materials expended and used in connection therewith and such other documentation reasonably requested by Landlord or Mortgagee.
(3)    Tenant agrees to complete all Tenant Alterations (i) in accordance with all Laws, Environmental Laws, all requirements of applicable insurance companies and in accordance with Landlord’s standard construction rules and regulations, and (ii) in a good and workmanlike manner with the use of good grades of materials. Tenant shall notify Landlord immediately if Tenant receives any notice of violation of any Law in connection with completion of any Tenant Alterations and shall immediately take such steps as are necessary to remedy such violation. In no event shall such supervision or right to supervise by Landlord nor shall any approvals given by Landlord under this Lease

30


constitute any warranty by Landlord to Tenant of the adequacy of the design, workmanship or quality of such work or materials for Tenant’s intended use or of compliance with the requirements of Section 9.01(a)(3)(i) and (ii) above or impose any liability upon Landlord in connection with the performance of such work.
(b)    All Tenant Additions to the Premises whether installed by Landlord or Tenant, shall without compensation or credit to Tenant, become part of the Premises and the property of Landlord at the time of their installation and shall remain in the Premises, unless pursuant to Article Twelve, Tenant may remove them or is required to remove them at Landlord’s request.
9.02
LIENS
Tenant shall not permit any lien or claim for lien of any mechanic, laborer or supplier or any other lien to be filed against the Building, the Land, the Premises, or any other part of the Property arising out of work performed, or alleged to have been performed by, or at the direction of, or on behalf of Tenant. If any such lien or claim for lien is filed, Tenant shall within ten (10) days of receiving notice of such lien or claim (a) have such lien or claim for lien released of record or (b) deliver to Landlord a bond in form, content, amount, and issued by surety, satisfactory to Landlord, indemnifying, protecting, defending and holding harmless the Indemnitees against all costs and liabilities resulting from such lien or claim for lien and the foreclosure or attempted foreclosure thereof. If Tenant fails to take any of the above actions, Landlord, in addition to its rights and remedies under Article Eleven, without investigating the validity of such lien or claim for lien, may pay or discharge the same and Tenant shall, as payment of additional Rent hereunder, reimburse Landlord upon demand for the amount so paid by Landlord, including Landlord’s expenses and attorneys’ fees.
ARTICLE 10
ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
10.01
ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
(a)    Without the prior written consent of Landlord, which may be withheld in Landlord’s sole discretion, Tenant may not sublease, assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise transfer or permit the transfer of this Lease or the encumbering of Tenant’s interest therein in whole or in part, by operation of Law or otherwise or permit the use or occupancy of the Premises, or any part thereof, by anyone other than Tenant, provided, however, if Landlord chooses not to recapture the space proposed to be subleased or assigned as provided in Section 10.02, Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to a subletting or assignment under this Section 10.01. Tenant agrees that the provisions governing sublease and assignment set forth in this Article Ten shall be deemed to be reasonable. If Tenant desires to enter into any sublease of the Premises or assignment of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver written notice thereof to Landlord (“Tenant’s Notice”), together with the identity of the proposed subtenant or assignee and the proposed principal terms thereof and financial and other information sufficient for

31


Landlord to make an informed judgment with respect to such proposed subtenant or assignee at least forty-five (45) days prior to the commencement date of the term of the proposed sublease or assignment. If Tenant proposes to sublease less than all of the Rentable Area of the Premises, the space proposed to be sublet and the space retained by Tenant must each be a marketable unit as reasonably determined by Landlord and otherwise in compliance with all Laws. Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing of its approval or disapproval of the proposed sublease or assignment or its decision to exercise its rights under Section 10.02 within thirty (30) days after receipt of Tenant’s Notice (and all required information). In no event may Tenant sublease any portion of the Premises or assign the Lease to any other tenant of the Project unless Landlord does not or will not have space available at a similar time to when the space subject to the proposed assignment or sublease is to be available to the assignee or subtenant, for a similar size as the proposed assignment or sublease transaction. Tenant shall submit for Landlord’s approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) any advertising which Tenant or its agents intend to use with respect to the space proposed to be sublet.
(b)    With respect to Landlord’s consent to an assignment or sublease, Landlord may take into consideration any factors which Landlord may deem relevant, and the reasons for which Landlord’s denial shall be deemed to be reasonable shall include, without limitation, the following:
(i)    in Landlord’s reasonable judgment the business reputation or creditworthiness of any proposed subtenant or assignee is not acceptable to Landlord; or
(ii)    in Landlord’s reasonable judgment the proposed assignee or subtenant would diminish the value or reputation of the Building or Landlord; or
(iii)    any proposed assignee’s or subtenant’s use of the Premises would violate Section 7.01 of the Lease or would violate the provisions of any other leases of tenants in the Project;
(iv)    the proposed assignee or subtenant is either a governmental agency, a school or similar operation, or a medical related practice; or
(v)    the proposed subtenant or assignee is a bona fide prospective tenant of Landlord in the Project as demonstrated by a written proposal dated within ninety (90) days prior to the date of Tenant’s request; or
(vi)    the proposed subtenant or assignee would materially increase the estimated pedestrian and vehicular traffic to and from the Premises and the Building.
In no event shall Landlord be obligated to consider a consent to any proposed assignment of the Lease which would assign less than the entire Premises. In the event Landlord wrongfully withholds its consent to any proposed sublease of the Premises or assignment of the Lease,

32


Tenant’s sole and exclusive remedy therefor shall be to seek specific performance of Landlord’s obligations to consent to such sublease or assignment.
(c)    Any sublease or assignment shall be expressly subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease Any subtenant or assignee shall execute such documents as Landlord may reasonably require to evidence the terms of Landlord’s consent to the sublease or assignment, including agreement to the effect set forth in Section 10.01(e) and Section 10.05 below. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a copy of all agreements executed by Tenant and the proposed subtenant and assignee with respect to the Premises. Landlord’s approval of a sublease, assignment, hypothecation, transfer or third party use or occupancy shall not constitute a waiver of Tenant’s obligation to obtain Landlord’s consent to further assignments or subleases, hypothecations, transfers or third party use or occupancy.
(d)    For purposes of this Article Ten, an assignment shall be deemed to include a change in the majority control of Tenant, resulting from any transfer, sale or assignment of shares of stock of Tenant occurring by operation of Law or otherwise, and includes any merger, acquisition, consolidation or reorganization. Notwithstanding any provision of this Section to the contrary, an assignment for purposes of this Article does not include any transfer of control of the stock or membership interests of Tenant through (i) any public offering of shares of stock in Tenant in accordance with applicable State and Federal law, rules, regulations and orders if thereafter the stock shall be listed and publicly traded through the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ national market; or (ii) public sale of such stock effected through such exchange or the NASDAQ national market. If Tenant is a partnership, any change in the partners of Tenant shall be deemed to be an assignment.
(e)    For purposes of this Lease, a “Permitted Transferee” shall mean any Person which: (i) is an Affiliate; or (ii) is the corporation or other entity (the “Successor”) resulting from a merger, consolidation or non-bankruptcy reorganization with Tenant; or (iii) is otherwise a deemed assignee due to a change of control under section 10.01(d) above; or (iv) purchases substantially all the assets of Tenant as a going concern (the “Purchaser”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Sections 10.01(a) and (b), 10.02 and 10.03, provided there is no uncured Default under this Lease, Tenant shall have the right, without the prior written consent of Landlord, to assign this Lease to a Permitted Transferee or to sublease the Premises or any part thereof to a Permitted Transferee provided that: (1) Landlord receives thirty (30) days prior written notice of an assignment or sublease (including a proposed transaction described in subparts (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) of this Section 10.01(e)); (2) with respect to an assignment of the Lease or a sublease of more than half the Premises to an entity described in subparts (ii) or (iv) of this Section 10.01(e), the Permitted Transferee’s net worth is not less than Tenant’s net worth immediately prior to such assignment or subletting; (3) with respect to an assignment of the Lease or a sublease of more than half the Premises to an entity described in subparts

33


(f)    or (iii) of this Section 10.01(e), Tenant (as the assignor or sublandord) continues in existence with a net worth not less than Tenant’s net worth immediately prior to such assignment or subletting; (4) the Permitted Transferee expressly assumes (except a Permitted Transferee which is a deemed assignee under subpart (iii) of this Section 10.01(e) or which is a sublessee in the event of a sublease under this Section 10.01(e)) in writing satisfactory to Landlord all of the obligations of Tenant under this Lease and delivers such assumption to Landlord no later than fifteen (15) days prior to the effective date of the assignment; (5) Landlord receives no later than five (5) days before the effective date a fully executed copy of the applicable assignment or sublease agreement between Tenant and the Permitted Transferee; and (6) promptly after Landlord’s written request, Tenant and the Permitted Transferee provide such reasonable documents and information which Landlord reasonably requests for the purpose of substantiating whether or not the assignment or sublease is to a Permitted Transferee. All determinations of net worth for purposes of this Subsection shall exclude any value attributable to goodwill or going concern value. With respect to any proposed assignment under subparts (ii) or (iv) of this Section 10.01(e)), Tenant shall pay Landlord, no later than thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of such proposed assignment, a processing fee of Two Thousand Five Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($2,500.00), which shall be Landlord’s earned fee whether or not the proposed assignment is completed by Tenant.
(g)    With respect to any sublease to a Permitted Transferee pursuant to Subsection (e) above, Tenant hereby irrevocably assigns to Landlord, effective upon any such sublease, all rent and other payments due from subtenant under the sublease, provided however, that Tenant shall have a license to collect such rent and other payments until the occurrence of a default by Tenant under any of the provisions of the Lease, and notice to Tenant of such default shall not be a prerequisite to Landlord’s right to collect subrent. At any time at Landlord’s option, Landlord shall have the right to give notice to the subtenant of such assignment. Landlord shall credit Tenant with any rent received by Landlord under such assignment but the acceptance of any payment on account of rent from the subtenant as the result of any such default shall in no manner whatsoever serve to release Tenant from any liability under the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions or agreement under the Lease. No such payment of rent or any other payment by the subtenant directly to Landlord and/or acceptance of such payment(s) by Landlord, regardless of the circumstances or reasons therefor, shall in any manner whatsoever be deemed an attornment by the subtenant to Landlord in the absence of a specific written agreement signed by Landlord to such an effect. For purposes of this Subsection, any use or occupancy by a Permitted Transferee (unless it is an assignee) without a formal sublease shall for the purposes of this Subsection be deemed to be a sublease at the same rental rate as provided in the Lease.
10.02
RECAPTURE
Except with respect to an assignment or sublease to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.01(e), Landlord shall have the option to exclude from the Premises

34


covered by this Lease (“recapture”), the space proposed to be sublet or subject to the assignment, effective as of the proposed commencement date of such sublease or assignment. If Landlord elects to recapture, Tenant shall surrender possession of the space proposed to be subleased or subject to the assignment to Landlord on the effective date of recapture of such space from the Premises, such date being the Termination Date for such space. Effective as of the date of recapture of any portion of the Premises pursuant to this section, the Monthly Base Rent, Rentable Area of the Premises and Tenant’s Share shall be adjusted accordingly.
10.03
EXCESS RENT
Tenant shall pay Landlord on the first day of each month during the term of the sublease or assignment, fifty percent (50%) of the amount by which the sum of all rent and other consideration (direct or indirect) due from the subtenant or assignee for such month exceeds: (i) that portion of the Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments due under this Lease for said month which is allocable to the space sublet or assigned; and (ii) the following costs and expenses for the subletting or assignment of such space: (1) brokerage commissions and attorneys’ fees and expenses, (2) the actual costs paid in making any improvements or substitutions in the Premises required by any sublease or assignment; and (3) “free rent” periods, costs of any inducements or concessions given to subtenant or assignee, moving costs, and other amounts in respect of such subtenant’s or assignee’s other leases or occupancy arrangements. All such costs and expenses shall be amortized over the term of the sublease or assignment pursuant to sound accounting principles.
10.04
TENANT LIABILITY
In the event of any sublease or assignment, whether or not with Landlord’s consent, Tenant shall not be released or discharged from any liability, whether past, present or future, under this Lease, including any liability arising from the exercise of any renewal or expansion option, to the extent such exercise is expressly permitted by Landlord. Tenant’s liability shall remain primary, and in the event of default by any subtenant, assignee or successor of Tenant in performance or observance of any of the covenants or conditions of this Lease, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant without the necessity of exhausting remedies against said subtenant, assignee or successor. After any assignment, Landlord may consent to subsequent assignments or subletting of this Lease, or amendments or modifications of this Lease with assignees of Tenant, without notifying Tenant, or any successor of Tenant, and without obtaining its or their consent thereto, and such action shall not relieve Tenant or any successor of Tenant of liability under this Lease. If Landlord grants consent to such sublease or assignment, Tenant shall pay all reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by Landlord with respect to such assignment or sublease (not to exceed Two Thousand Five Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($2,500.00) per request, provided that Tenant and, as applicable, the assignee, sublessee and transferee execute without negotiation Landlord’s standard documents for consent to assignment, sublease or transfer). In addition, if Tenant has any options to extend the Term of this Lease or to add other space to the

35


Premises, such options shall not be available to any subtenant or assignee, directly or indirectly without Landlord’s express written consent, which may be withheld in Landlord’s sole discretion.
10.05
ASSUMPTION AND ATTORNMENT
If Tenant shall assign this Lease as permitted herein, the assignee shall expressly assume all of the obligations of Tenant hereunder in a written instrument satisfactory to Landlord and furnish it to Landlord not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the effective date of the assignment. If Tenant shall sublease the Premises as permitted herein, Tenant shall, at Landlord’s option, within fifteen (15) days following any request by Landlord, obtain and furnish to Landlord a written agreement satisfactory to Landlord to the effect that (a) the subtenant will attorn to Landlord and will pay all subrent directly to Landlord in the event of any termination of this Lease for any reason, including rejection or deemed rejection in any bankruptcy proceeding, and (b) that in the event of any default by Tenant under this Lease, subtenant will pay all subrent directly to Landlord.
ARTICLE 11
DEFAULT AND REMEDIES
11.01
EVENTS OF DEFAULT
The occurrence or existence of any one or more of the following shall constitute a “Default” by Tenant under this Lease:
(i)    Tenant fails to pay any installment or other payment of Rent including Rent Adjustment Deposits or Rent Adjustments within three (3) business days after the date when due (provided, however, that should Tenant fail to pay any installment or other payment of Rent when due Landlord shall provide written notice to Tenant with respect to the first two payment failures in any twelve month period and the same shall not constitute a Default unless Tenant fails to pay such sums within three (3) business days after written notice thereof);
(ii)    Tenant fails to observe or perform any of the other covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease or the Workletter and fails to cure such default within fifteen (15) days after written notice thereof to Tenant (except in connection with a failure to perform under Section 20.01 such fifteen (15) day period shall not apply and the period shall be only five (5) days), unless the default involves a hazardous condition, which shall be cured forthwith or unless the failure to perform is a Default for which this Lease specifies there is no cure or grace period, provided that, if Tenant has exercised reasonable diligence to cure such failure and such failure cannot reasonably be cured within such fifteen (15) day period, then such cure period shall be extended, but not in excess of an additional thirty (30) days, so long as Tenant diligently and continuously prosecutes the cure to completion;

36


(iii)    the interest of Tenant in this Lease is levied upon under execution or other legal process;
(iv)    a petition is filed by or against Tenant to declare Tenant bankrupt or seeking a plan of reorganization or arrangement under any Chapter of the Bankruptcy Act, or any amendment, replacement or substitution therefor, or to delay payment of, reduce or modify Tenant’s debts, which in the case of an involuntary action is not discharged within thirty (30) days;
(v)    Tenant is declared insolvent by Law or any assignment of Tenant’s property is made for the benefit of creditors;
(vi)    a receiver is appointed for Tenant or Tenant’s property, which appointment is not discharged within thirty (30) days;
(vii)    any action taken by or against Tenant to reorganize or modify Tenant’s capital structure in a materially adverse way which in the case of an involuntary action is not discharged within thirty (30) days;
(viii)    upon the dissolution of Tenant; or
(ix)    upon the third occurrence within any Lease Year that Tenant fails to pay Rent when due or has breached a particular covenant of this Lease (whether or not such failure or breach is thereafter cured within any stated cure or grace period or statutory period).
11.02
LANDLORD’S REMEDIES
(a)    A Default shall constitute a breach of the Lease for which Landlord shall have the rights and remedies set forth in this Section 11.02 and all other rights and remedies set forth in this Lease or now or hereafter allowed by Law, whether legal or equitable, and all rights and remedies of Landlord shall be cumulative and none shall exclude any other right or remedy.
(b)    With respect to a Default, at any time Landlord may terminate Tenant’s right to possession by written notice to Tenant stating such election. Upon the termination of Tenant’s right to possession pursuant to this Section 11.02, Tenant’s right to possession shall terminate and this Lease shall terminate, and Tenant shall remain liable as hereinafter provided. Upon such termination, Landlord shall have the right, subject to applicable Law, to re-enter the Premises and dispossess Tenant and the legal representatives of Tenant and all other occupants of the Premises by unlawful detainer or other summary proceedings, or otherwise as permitted by Law, regain possession of the Premises and remove their property (including their trade fixtures, personal property and those Tenant Additions which Tenant is required or permitted to remove under Article Twelve), but Landlord shall not be obligated to effect such removal, and such property may, at Landlord’s option, be stored elsewhere, sold or otherwise dealt with as

37


permitted by Law, at the risk of, expense of and for the account of Tenant, and the proceeds of any sale shall be applied pursuant to Law. Landlord shall in no event be responsible for the value, preservation or safekeeping of any such property. Tenant hereby waives all claims for damages that may be caused by Landlord’s removing or storing Tenant’s personal property pursuant to this Section or Section 12.01, and Tenant hereby indemnifies, and agrees to defend, protect and hold harmless, the Indemnitees from any and all loss, claims, demands, actions, expenses, liability and cost (including attorneys’ fees and expenses) arising out of or in any way related to such removal or storage. Upon such written termination of Tenant’s right to possession and this Lease, Landlord shall have the right to recover damages for Tenant’s Default as provided herein or by Law, including the following damages provided by California Civil Code Section 1951.2:
(1)    the worth at the time of award of the unpaid Rent which had been earned at the time of termination;
(2)    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 Rent loss that Tenant proves could reasonably have been avoided;
(3)    the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the term of this Lease after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; and
(4)    any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant’s failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom. The word “rent” as used in this Section 11.02 shall have the same meaning as the defined term Rent in this Lease. The “worth at the time of award” of the amount referred to in clauses (1) and
(5)    above is computed by allowing interest at the Default Rate. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in clause (3) above is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%). For the purpose of determining unpaid Rent under clause (3) above, the monthly Rent reserved in this Lease shall be deemed to be the sum of the Monthly Base Rent, and monthly Storage Space Rent, if any, and the amounts last payable by Tenant as Rent Adjustments for the calendar year in which Landlord terminated this Lease as provided hereinabove.
(c)    Even if Tenant is in Default and/or has abandoned the Premises, this Lease shall continue in effect for so long as Landlord does not terminate Tenant’s right to possession by written notice as provided in Section 11.02(b) above, and Landlord may enforce all its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover Rent as it becomes due under this

38


Lease. In such event, Landlord shall have all of the rights and remedies of a landlord under California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (lessor may continue Lease in effect after Tenant’s Default and abandonment and recover Rent as it becomes due, if Tenant has the right to sublet or assign, subject only to reasonable limitations), or any successor statute. During such time as Tenant is in Default, if Landlord has not terminated this Lease by written notice and if Tenant requests Landlord’s consent to an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of the Premises, subject to Landlord’s option to recapture pursuant to Section 10.02, Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to such assignment or sublease. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the provisions of Article Ten shall be deemed to constitute reasonable limitations of Tenant’s right to assign or sublet. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that in the absence of written notice pursuant to Section 11.02(b) above terminating Tenant’s right to possession, no other act of Landlord shall constitute a termination of Tenant’s right to possession or an acceptance of Tenant’s surrender of the Premises, including acts of maintenance or preservation or efforts to relet the Premises or the appointment of a receiver upon initiative of Landlord to protect Landlord’s interest under this Lease or the withholding of consent to a subletting or assignment, or terminating a subletting or assignment, if in accordance with other provisions of this Lease.
(d)    In the event that Landlord seeks an injunction with respect to a breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any of the covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease, if Landlord ultimately prevails, Tenant agrees to reimburse Landlord for the premium for any bond required in connection with such injunction upon demand.
(e)    Tenant hereby waives any and all rights to relief from forfeiture, redemption or reinstatement granted by Law (including California Civil Code of Procedure Sections 1174 and 1179) in the event of Tenant being evicted or dispossessed for any cause or in the event of Landlord obtaining possession of the Premises by reason of Tenant’s Default or otherwise;
(f)    When this Lease requires giving or service of a notice of Default or of a failure of Tenant to observe or perform any covenant, condition or provision of this Lease which will constitute a Default unless Tenant so observes or performs within any applicable cure period, and so long as the notice given or served provides Tenant the longer of any applicable cure period required by this Lease or by statute, then the giving of any equivalent or similar statutory notice, including any equivalent or similar notices required by California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 or any similar or successor statute, shall replace and suffice as any notice required under this Lease. When a statute requires service of a notice in a particular manner, service of that notice (or a similar notice required by this Lease) pursuant to the statutory service of notice procedures shall be sufficient in lieu of, and shall satisfy, any requirements to give notice to the addresses and in the manner required by Article Twenty-four, and without limiting the foregoing, any notice of unlawful detainer required by California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 or any similar or successor statute with respect to termination of possession, recovery of possession, eviction, termination of the Lease or similar action or proceeding shall not be required to be given pursuant to Article Twenty- four or to the notice addresses for Tenant set forth in this

39


Lease, but instead may be served as required by Code of Civil Procedure Section 1162 or any similar or successor statute, and for purposes of Code of Civil Procedure Section 1162 or any similar or successor statute, Tenant’s “place of residence” and “usual place of business” shall mean the address of the Premises.
(g)    The voluntary or other surrender or termination of this Lease, or a mutual termination or cancellation thereof, shall not work a merger and shall terminate all or any existing assignments, subleases, subtenancies or occupancies permitted by Tenant, except if and as otherwise specified in writing by Landlord.
(h)    No delay or omission in the exercise of any right or remedy of Landlord upon any default by Tenant, and no exercise by Landlord of its rights pursuant to Section 26.15 to perform any duty which Tenant fails timely to perform, shall impair any right or remedy or be construed as a waiver. No provision of this Lease shall be deemed waived by Landlord unless such waiver is in a writing signed by Landlord. The waiver by Landlord of any breach of any provision of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision of this Lease.
11.03
ATTORNEY’S FEES
In the event any party brings any suit or other proceeding with respect to the subject matter or enforcement of this Lease, the prevailing party (as determined by the court, agency or other authority before which such suit or proceeding is commenced) shall, in addition to such other relief as may be awarded, be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees, expenses and costs of investigation as actually incurred, including court costs, expert witness fees, costs and expenses of investigation, and all attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses in any such suit or proceeding (including in any action or participation in or in connection with any case or proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code, 11 United States Code Sections 101 et seq., or any successor statutes, in establishing or enforcing the right to indemnification, in appellate proceedings, or in connection with the enforcement or collection of any judgment obtained in any such suit or proceeding).
11.04
BANKRUPTCY
The following provisions shall apply in the event of the bankruptcy or insolvency of Tenant:
(a)    In connection with any proceeding under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code where the trustee of Tenant elects to assume this Lease for the purposes of assigning it, such election or assignment, may only be made upon compliance with the provisions of (b) and (c) below, which conditions Landlord and Tenant acknowledge to be commercially reasonable. In the event the trustee elects to reject this Lease then Landlord shall immediately be entitled to possession of the Premises without further obligation to Tenant or the trustee.

40


(b)    Any election to assume this Lease under Chapter 11 or 13 of the Bankruptcy Code by Tenant as debtor-in-possession or by Tenant’s trustee (the “Electing Party”) must provide for:
The Electing Party to cure or provide to Landlord adequate assurance that it will cure all monetary defaults under this Lease within fifteen (15) days from the date of assumption and it will cure all nonmonetary defaults under this Lease within thirty (30) days from the date of assumption. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge such condition to be commercially reasonable.
(c)    If the Electing Party has assumed this Lease or elects to assign Tenant’s interest under this Lease to any other person, such interest may be assigned only if the intended assignee has provided adequate assurance of future performance (as herein defined), of all of the obligations imposed on Tenant under this Lease.
For the purposes hereof, “adequate assurance of future performance” means that Landlord has ascertained that each of the following conditions has been satisfied:
(d)    The assignee has submitted a current financial statement, certified by its chief financial officer, which shows a net worth and working capital in amounts sufficient to assure the future performance by the assignee of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease; and
(e)    Landlord has obtained consents or waivers from any third parties which may be required under a lease, mortgage, financing arrangement, or other agreement by which Landlord is bound, to enable Landlord to permit such assignment.
(f)    Landlord’s acceptance of Rent or any other payment from any trustee, receiver, assignee, person, or other entity will not be deemed to have waived, or waive, the requirement of Landlord’s consent, Landlord’s right to terminate this Lease for any transfer of Tenant’s interest under this Lease without such consent, or Landlord’s claim for any amount of Rent due from Tenant.
11.05
LANDLORD’S DEFAULT
Landlord shall be in default hereunder in the event Landlord has not begun and pursued with reasonable diligence the cure of any failure of Landlord to meet its obligations hereunder within thirty (30) days after the receipt by Landlord of written notice from Tenant of the alleged failure to perform. In no event shall Tenant have the right to terminate or rescind this Lease as a result of Landlord’s default as to any covenant or agreement contained in this Lease. Tenant hereby waives such remedies of termination and rescission and hereby agrees that Tenant’s remedies for default hereunder and for breach of any promise or inducement shall be limited to a suit for damages and/or injunction. In addition, Tenant hereby covenants that, prior to the exercise of any such remedies, it will give Mortgagee notice and a reasonable time to cure any default by Landlord.

41


ARTICLE 12
SURRENDER OF PREMISES
12.01
IN GENERAL
Upon the Termination Date, Tenant shall surrender and vacate the Premises immediately and deliver possession thereof to Landlord in a clean, good and tenantable condition, ordinary wear and tear, and damage caused by Landlord excepted. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord all keys to the Premises. Tenant shall remove from the Premises all movable personal property of Tenant and Tenant’s trade fixtures, including, subject to Section 6.03, cabling for any of the foregoing. Tenant shall be entitled to remove such Tenant Additions which at the time of their installation Landlord and Tenant agreed may be removed by Tenant. Tenant shall also remove such other Tenant Additions as required by Landlord, including any Tenant Additions containing Hazardous Material. Tenant immediately shall repair all damage resulting from removal of any of Tenant’s property, furnishings or Tenant Additions, shall close all floor, ceiling and roof openings and shall restore the Premises to a tenantable condition as reasonably determined by Landlord. If any of the Tenant Additions which were installed by Tenant involved the lowering of ceilings, raising of floors or the installation of specialized wall or floor coverings or lights, then Tenant shall also be obligated to return such surfaces to their condition prior to the commencement of this Lease. Tenant shall also be required to close any staircases or other openings between floors but only to the extent the same were opened by Tenant. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, (a) Tenant shall not be required to remove any portion of the Tenant Work shown on the Tenant’s Plans and approved as of the date of this Lease, as such terms are defined in Exhibit B hereto, and (b) if so requested by Tenant in writing (and prominently in all capital and bold lettering which also states that such request is pursuant to Section 12.01 of the Lease) at the time Tenant requests approval of any Tenant Work or subsequent Tenant Alterations, Landlord shall advise Tenant at the time of Landlord’s approval of such Tenant Work or Tenant Alterations as to whether Landlord will require that such Tenant Work or Tenant Alterations be removed by Tenant from the Premises; provided, however, regardless of the foregoing, in any event, Landlord may require removal of any Tenant Additions containing Hazardous Material and all Tenant’s trade fixtures, and, subject to Section 6.03, cabling and wiring installed for Tenant’s personal property or trade fixtures. In the event possession of the Premises is not delivered to Landlord when required hereunder, or if Tenant shall fail to remove those items described above, Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to), at Tenant’s expense, remove any of such property and store, sell or otherwise deal with such property as provided in Section 11.02(b), including the waiver and indemnity obligations provided in that Section, and undertake, at Tenant’s expense, such restoration work as Landlord deems necessary or advisable.
12.02
LANDLORD’S RIGHTS
All property which may be removed from the Premises by Landlord shall be conclusively presumed to have been abandoned by Tenant and Landlord may deal with such property as

42


provided in Section 11.02(b), including the waiver and indemnity obligations provided in that Section. Tenant shall also reimburse Landlord for all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in removing any of Tenant Additions and in restoring the Premises to the condition required by this Lease at the Termination Date.
ARTICLE 13
HOLDING OVER
Tenant shall pay Landlord the greater of (i) one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the monthly Rent payable for the month immediately preceding the holding over (including increases for Rent Adjustments which Landlord may reasonably estimate) or, (ii) one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the fair market rental value of the Premises as reasonably determined by Landlord for each month or portion thereof that Tenant retains possession of the Premises, or any portion thereof, after the Termination Date (without reduction for any partial month that Tenant retains possession). Tenant shall also pay all damages sustained by Landlord by reason of such retention of possession. The provisions of this Article shall not constitute a waiver by Landlord of any re-entry rights of Landlord and Tenant’s continued occupancy of the Premises shall be as a tenancy in sufferance.
ARTICLE 14
DAMAGE BY FIRE OR OTHER CASUALTY
14.01
SUBSTANTIAL UNTENANTABILITY
(a)    If any fire or other casualty (whether insured or uninsured) renders all or a substantial portion of the Premises or the Building untenantable, Landlord shall, with reasonable promptness after the occurrence of such damage, reasonably estimate the length of time that will be required to substantially complete the repair and restoration and shall by notice advise Tenant of such estimate (“Landlord’s Notice”). If Landlord estimates that the amount of time required to substantially complete such repair and restoration will exceed one hundred eighty (180) days from the date such damage occurred, then Landlord, or Tenant if all or a substantial portion of the Premises is rendered untenantable, shall have the right to terminate this Lease as of the date of such damage upon giving written notice to the other at any time within twenty (20) days after delivery of Landlord’s Notice, provided that if Landlord so chooses, Landlord’s Notice may also constitute such notice of termination.
(b)    In the event that the Building is damaged or destroyed to the extent of more than twenty-five percent (25%) of its replacement cost or to any extent if no insurance proceeds or insufficient insurance proceeds are receivable by Landlord and Tenant does not voluntarily cover the insufficient proceeds, or if the buildings at the Project shall be damaged to the extent of fifty percent (50%) or more of the replacement value or to any extent if no insurance proceeds or insufficient insurance proceeds are receivable by Landlord and Tenant does not voluntarily cover the insufficient proceeds, and regardless of whether or not the Premises be damaged, Landlord

43


may elect by written notice to Tenant given within thirty (30) days after the occurrence of the casualty to terminate this Lease in lieu of so restoring the Premises, in which event this Lease shall terminate as of the date specified in Landlord’s notice, which date shall be no later than sixty (60) days following the date of Landlord’s notice.
(c)    Unless this Lease is terminated as provided in the preceding Subsections 14.01 (a) and (b), Landlord shall proceed with reasonable promptness to repair and restore the Premises to its condition as existed prior to such casualty, subject to reasonable delays for insurance adjustments and Force Majeure delays, and also subject to zoning Laws and building codes then in effect. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant, and Tenant shall not be entitled to terminate this Lease if such repairs and restoration are not in fact completed within the time period estimated by Landlord so long as Landlord shall proceed with reasonable diligence to complete such repairs and restoration.
(d)    Tenant acknowledges that Landlord shall be entitled to the full proceeds of any insurance coverage, whether carried by Landlord or Tenant, for damages to the Premises, except for those proceeds of Tenant’s insurance of its own personal property and equipment which would be removable by Tenant at the Termination Date. All such insurance proceeds shall be payable to Landlord whether or not the Premises are to be repaired and restored, provided, however, if this Lease is not terminated and the parties proceed to repair and restore Tenant Additions at Tenant’s cost, to the extent Landlord received proceeds of Tenant’s insurance covering Tenant Additions, such proceeds shall be applied to reimburse Tenant for its cost of repairing and restoring Tenant Additions.
(e)    Notwithstanding anything in this Article Fourteen to the contrary: (i) Landlord shall have no duty pursuant to this Section to repair or restore any portion of any Tenant Additions or to expend for any repair or restoration of the Premises or Building amounts in excess of insurance proceeds paid to Landlord and available for repair or restoration; (ii) Tenant shall not have the right to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section if any damage or destruction was caused by the act or neglect of Tenant, its agent or employees; and (iii) in the event that the Premises is located in more than one building of the Project and any damage or destruction covered by this Article affects only one of the buildings in which the Premises is located, then the determination of the extent of damage or destruction shall be made only with respect to the building so affected, and Landlord or Tenant shall be entitled to terminate this Lease only with respect to the part of the Premises in the building so affected, and the Lease shall continue in full force and effect to the extent of the remainder, if any, of the Premises. Whether or not the Lease is terminated pursuant to this Article Fourteen, in no event shall Tenant be entitled to any compensation or damages for loss of the use of the whole or any part of the Premises or for any inconvenience or annoyance occasioned by any such damage, destruction, rebuilding or restoration of the Premises or the Building or access thereto.

44


(f)    Any repair or restoration of the Premises performed by Tenant shall be in accordance with the provisions of Article Nine hereof.
14.02
INSUBSTANTIAL UNTENANTABILITY
Unless this Lease is terminated as provided in the preceding Subsections 14.01 (a) and (b), then Landlord shall proceed to repair and restore the Building or the Premises other than Tenant Additions, with reasonable promptness, unless such damage is to the Premises and occurs during the last nine (9) months of the Term, in which event either Tenant or Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease as of the date of such casualty by giving written notice thereof to the other within twenty (20) days after the date of such casualty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord’s obligation to repair shall be limited in accordance with the provisions of Section 14.01 above.
14.03
RENT ABATEMENT
If all or any part of the Premises are rendered untenantable by fire or other casualty and this Lease is not terminated, Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall abate for that part of the Premises which is untenantable on a per diem basis from the date of the casualty until Landlord has Substantially Completed the repair and restoration work in the Premises which it is required to perform, provided, that as a result of such casualty, Tenant does not occupy the portion of the Premises which is untenantable during such period. The foregoing rent abatement shall not apply in the event the Premises are rendered untenantable by reason of a fire or other casualty caused in whole or in part by the negligence or willful act of Tenant or its agents, employees, contractors or invitees if such abatement would adversely affect Landlord’s or Tenant’s ability to collect under any of its insurance policies providing coverage for rental or business interruptions.
14.04
WAIVER OF STATUTORY REMEDIES
The provisions of this Lease, including this Article Fourteen, constitute an express agreement between Landlord and Tenant with respect to any and all damage to, or destruction of, the Premises or the Property or any part of either, and any Law, including Sections 1932(2), 1933(4), 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code, with respect to any rights or obligations concerning damage or destruction shall have no application to this Lease or to any damage to or destruction of all or any part of the Premises or the Property or any part of either, and are hereby waived.
ARTICLE 15
EMINENT DOMAIN
15.01
TAKING OF WHOLE OR SUBSTANTIAL PART
In the event the whole or any substantial part of the Building or of the Premises is taken or condemned by any competent authority for any public use or purpose (including a deed given in

45


lieu of condemnation) and the Building or the Premises is thereby rendered untenantable, this Lease shall terminate as of the date title vests in such authority or any earlier date on which possession is required to be surrendered to such authority, and Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall be apportioned as of the Termination Date. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein set forth, in the event that the Premises is located in more than one building of the Project and any taking covered by this Article affects only one of the buildings in which the Premises is located, then the determination of the extent of the taking shall be made only with respect to the building so affected, and Landlord or Tenant shall be entitled to terminate this Lease only with respect to the part of the Premises in the building so affected, and the Lease shall continue in full force and effect to the extent of the remainder, if any, of the Premises. Further, if at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the rentable area of the Project is taken or condemned by any competent authority for any public use or purpose (including a deed given in lieu of condemnation), and regardless of whether or not the Premises be so taken or condemned, Landlord may elect by written notice to Tenant to terminate this Lease as of the date title vests in such authority or any earlier date on which possession is required to be surrendered to such authority, and Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall be apportioned as of the Termination Date. If substantially all of the parking for the Project is taken or condemned by any competent authority for any public use or purpose (including a deed given in lieu of condemnation), and regardless of whether or not the Premises be so taken or condemned, either party may elect by written notice to the other party to terminate this Lease as of the date title vests in such authority or any earlier date on which possession is required to be surrendered to such authority, and Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall be apportioned as of the Termination Date. Landlord may, without any obligation to Tenant, agree to sell or convey to the taking authority the Premises, the Building, Tenant’s Phase, the Project or any portion thereof sought by the taking authority, free from this Lease and the right of Tenant hereunder, without first requiring that any action or proceeding be instituted or, if instituted, pursued to a judgment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein set forth, in the event the taking of the Building or Premises is temporary (for less than the remaining term of the Lease), Landlord may elect either (i) to terminate this Lease or (ii) permit Tenant to receive the entire award attributable to the Premises in which case Tenant shall continue to pay Rent and this Lease shall not terminate; provided, however, if the taking is for less than one hundred eighty (180) days and is for all or any part of the Premises, then this Lease shall continue in full force and effect and Tenant shall be entitled to receive the entire award attributable to the Premises and Tenant shall continue to pay Rent.
15.02
TAKING OF PART
In the event a part of the Building or the Premises is taken or condemned by any competent authority (or a deed is delivered in lieu of condemnation) and this Lease is not terminated, the Lease shall be amended to reduce or increase, as the case may be, the Monthly Base Rent and Tenant’s Share to reflect the Rentable Area of the Premises or Building, as the case may be, remaining after any such taking or condemnation. Landlord, upon receipt and to the extent of the

46


award in condemnation (or proceeds of sale) shall make necessary repairs and restorations to the Premises (exclusive of Tenant Additions) and to the Building to the extent necessary to constitute the portion of the Building not so taken or condemned as a complete architectural and economically efficient unit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if as a result of any taking, or a governmental order that the grade of any street or alley adjacent to the Building is to be changed and such taking or change of grade makes it necessary or desirable to substantially remodel or restore the Building or prevents the economical operation of the Building, Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease upon ninety (90) days prior written notice to Tenant.
15.03
COMPENSATION
Landlord shall be entitled to receive the entire award (or sale proceeds) from any such taking, condemnation or sale without any payment to Tenant, and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord Tenant’s interest, if any, in such award; provided, however, Tenant shall have the right separately to pursue against the condemning authority a separate award in respect of the loss, if any, to Tenant Additions paid for by Tenant without any credit or allowance from Landlord, for fixtures or personal property of Tenant, or for relocation or business interruption expenses, so long as there is no diminution of Landlord’s award as a result.
ARTICLE 16
INSURANCE
16.01
TENANT’S INSURANCE
Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, agrees to maintain in force, with a company or companies acceptable to Landlord, during the Term: (a) Commercial General Liability Insurance on a primary basis and without any right of contribution from any insurance carried by Landlord covering the Premises on an occurrence basis against all claims for personal injury, bodily injury, death and property damage, including contractual liability covering the indemnification provisions in this Lease.

47


16.02
FORM OF POLICIES
Each policy referred to in 16.01 shall satisfy the following requirements. Each policy shall (i) name Landlord and the Indemnitees as additional insureds (except Workers’ Compensation and Employers’ Liability Insurance), (ii) be issued by one or more responsible insurance companies licensed to do business in the State of California reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, (iii) where applicable, provide for deductible amounts satisfactory to Landlord and not permit co-insurance, (iv) shall provide that such insurance may not be canceled or amended without thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the Landlord, and (v) each policy of “All-Risks” property insurance shall provide that the policy shall not be invalidated should the insured waive in writing prior to a loss, any or all rights of recovery against any other party for losses covered by such policies. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, certificates of insurance and at Landlord’s request, copies of all policies and renewals thereof to be maintained by Tenant hereunder, not less than ten (10) days prior to the Commencement Date and not less than ten (10) days prior to the expiration date of each policy.

Landlord agrees to purchase and keep in full force and effect during the Term hereof, including any extensions or renewals thereof, insurance under policies issued by insurers of recognized responsibility, qualified to do business in the State of California on the Building in amounts not less than the greater of eighty (80%) percent of the then full replacement cost (without depreciation) of the Building (above foundations and excluding Tenant Additions to the Premises) or an amount sufficient to prevent Landlord from becoming a co-insurer under the terms of the applicable policies, against fire and such other risks as may be included in standard forms of all risk coverage insurance reasonably available from time to time. Landlord agrees to maintain in force during the Term, Commercial General Liability Insurance covering the Building on an occurrence basis against all claims for personal injury, bodily injury, death and property damage. Such insurance shall be for a combined single limit of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00). Neither Landlord’s obligation to carry such insurance nor the carrying of such insurance shall be deemed to be an indemnity by Landlord with respect to any claim, liability, loss, cost or expense due, in whole or in part, to Tenant’s negligent acts or omissions or willful misconduct. Without obligation to do so, Landlord may, in its sole discretion from time to time, carry insurance in amounts greater and/or for coverage additional to the coverage and amounts set forth above.
16.04
WAIVER OF SUBROGATION
(a)    Landlord agrees that, if obtainable at no, or minimal, additional cost, and so long as the same is permitted under the laws of the State of California, it will include in its “All Risks” policies appropriate clauses pursuant to which the insurance companies (i) waive all right of subrogation against Tenant with respect to losses payable under such policies and/or (ii) agree

48


that such policies shall not be invalidated should the insured waive in writing prior to a loss any or all right of recovery against any party for losses covered by such policies.
(b)    Tenant agrees to include, if obtainable at no, or minimal, additional cost, and so long as the same is permitted under the laws of the State of California, in its “All Risks” insurance policy or policies on Tenant Additions to the Premises, whether or not removable, and on Tenant’s furniture, furnishings, fixtures and other property removable by Tenant under the provisions of this Lease appropriate clauses pursuant to which the insurance company or companies (i) waive the right of subrogation against Landlord and/or any tenant of space in the Building with respect to losses payable under such policy or policies and/or (ii) agree that such policy or policies shall not be invalidated should the insured waive in writing prior to a loss any or all right of recovery against any party for losses covered by such policy or policies. If Tenant is unable to obtain in such policy or policies either of the clauses described in the preceding sentence, Tenant shall, if legally possible and without necessitating a change in insurance carriers, have Landlord named in such policy or policies as an additional insured. If Landlord shall be named as an additional insured in accordance with the foregoing, Landlord agrees to endorse promptly to the order of Tenant, without recourse, any check, draft, or order for the payment of money representing the proceeds of any such policy or representing any other payment growing out of or connected with said policies, and Landlord does hereby irrevocably waive any and all rights in and to such proceeds and payments.
(c)    Provided that Landlord’s right of full recovery under its policy or policies aforesaid is not adversely affected or prejudiced thereby, Landlord hereby waives any and all right of recovery which it might otherwise have against Tenant, its servants, agents and employees, for loss or damage occurring to the Real Property and the fixtures, appurtenances and equipment therein, except Tenant Additions, to the extent the same is covered by Landlord’s insurance, notwithstanding that such loss or damage may result from the negligence or fault of Tenant, its servants, agents or employees. Provided that Tenant’s right of full recovery under its aforesaid policy or policies is not adversely affected or prejudiced thereby, Tenant hereby waives any and all right of recovery which it might otherwise have against Landlord, its servants, and employees and against every other tenant in the Real Property who shall have executed a similar waiver as set forth in this Section 16.04 (c) for loss or damage to Tenant Additions, whether or not removable, and to Tenant’s furniture, furnishings, fixtures and other property removable by Tenant under the provisions hereof to the extent the same is covered or coverable by Tenant’s insurance required under this Lease, notwithstanding that such loss or damage may result from the negligence or fault of Landlord, its servants, agents or employees, or such other tenant and the servants, agents or employees thereof.
(d)    Landlord and Tenant hereby agree to advise the other promptly if the clauses to be included in their respective insurance policies pursuant to subparagraphs (a) and (b) above cannot be obtained on the terms hereinbefore provided and thereafter to furnish the other with a certificate of insurance or copy of such policies showing the naming of the other as an additional

49


insured, as aforesaid. Landlord and Tenant hereby also agree to notify the other promptly of any cancellation or change of the terms of any such policy which would affect such clauses or naming. All such policies which name both Landlord and Tenant as additional insureds shall, to the extent obtainable, contain agreements by the insurers to the effect that no act or omission of any additional insured will invalidate the policy as to the other additional insureds.
16.05
NOTICE OF CASUALTY
Tenant shall give Landlord notice in case of a fire or accident in the Premises promptly after Tenant is aware of such event.
ARTICLE 17
WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND INDEMNITY

If any such damage, whether to the Premises or the Property or any part of either, or whether to Landlord or to other tenants in the Property, results from any act or neglect of Tenant, its employees, servants, agents, contractors, invitees or customers, Tenant shall be liable therefor and Landlord may, at Landlord’s option, repair such damage and Tenant shall, upon demand by Landlord, as payment of additional Rent hereunder, reimburse Landlord within ten (10) days of demand for the total cost of such repairs, in excess of amounts, if any, paid to Landlord under insurance covering such damages.

17.02
INDEMNITY BY TENANT
To the extent permitted by Law, Tenant hereby indemnifies, and agrees to protect, defend and hold the Indemnitees harmless, against any and all actions, claims, demands, liability, costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and expenses for the defense thereof, arising from Tenant’s occupancy of the Premises, from the undertaking of any Tenant Additions or repairs to the Premises, from the conduct of Tenant’s business on the Premises, or from any breach or default on the part of Tenant in the performance of any covenant or agreement on the part of Tenant to be performed pursuant to the terms of this Lease, or from any willful act or negligence of Tenant,

50


its agents, contractors, servants, employees, customers or invitees, in or about the Premises or the Property or any part of either. In case of any action or proceeding brought against the Indemnitees by reason of any such claim, upon notice from Landlord, Tenant covenants to defend such action or proceeding by counsel chosen by Landlord, in Landlord’s sole discretion. Landlord reserves the right to settle, compromise or dispose of any and all actions, claims and demands related to the foregoing indemnity. The foregoing indemnity shall not operate to relieve Indemnitees of liability to the extent such liability is caused by the gross negligence or willful and wrongful act of Indemnitees. Further, the foregoing indemnity is subject to and shall not diminish any waivers in effect in accordance with Section 16.04 by Landlord or its insurers to the extent of amounts, if any, paid to Landlord under its “All-Risks” property insurance.
17.03
WAIVER OF CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
To the extent permitted by law, Tenant hereby waives and releases the Indemnitees from any consequential damages, compensation or claims for inconvenience or loss of business, rents or profits as a result of any injury or damage, whether or not caused by the willful and wrongful act of any of the Indemnitees.

ARTICLE 23
MORTGAGEE PROTECTION
23.01
SUBORDINATION AND ATTORNMENT
This Lease is and shall be expressly subject and subordinate at all times to (i) any ground or underlying lease of the Real Property, now or, provided the applicable ground lessor tenders a commercially reasonable non-disturbance agreement to Tenant, hereafter existing, and all amendments, extensions, renewals and modifications to any such lease, provided such amendments, extensions, renewals and modifications do not by their terms materially increase Tenant’s monetary obligations or materially increase Tenant’s non-monetary under this Lease, and (ii) the lien of any mortgage or trust deed now or, provided the Mortgagee tenders a commercially reasonable non-disturbance agreement to Tenant, hereafter encumbering fee title to the Real Property and/or the leasehold estate under any such lease, and all amendments, extensions, renewals, replacements and modifications of such mortgage or trust deed and/or the obligation secured thereby, unless such ground lease or ground lessor, or mortgage, trust deed or Mortgagee, expressly provides or elects that the Lease shall be superior to such lease or mortgage or trust deed. If any such mortgage or trust deed is foreclosed (including any sale of the Real Property pursuant to a power of sale), or if any such lease is terminated, upon request of the Mortgagee or ground lessor, as the case may be, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser at the foreclosure sale or to the ground lessor under such lease, as the case may be, provided, however, that such purchaser or ground lessor shall not be (i) bound by any payment of Rent for more than one month in advance except payments in the nature of security for the performance by Tenant of its obligations under this Lease;
(a)    subject to any offset, defense or damages arising out of a default of any obligations of any preceding Landlord; or
(b)    bound by any amendment or modification of this Lease made without the written consent of the Mortgagee or ground lessor; or (iv) liable for any security deposits not actually received in cash by such purchaser or ground lessor. This subordination shall be self-operative and no further certificate or instrument of subordination need be required by any such Mortgagee or ground lessor. In confirmation of such subordination, however, Tenant shall execute promptly any reasonable certificate or instrument that Landlord, Mortgagee or ground lessor may request. Upon request by such successor in interest, Tenant shall execute and deliver reasonable instruments confirming the attornment provided for herein.
23.02
MORTGAGEE PROTECTION

54


Tenant agrees to give any Mortgagee or ground lessor, by registered or certified mail, a copy of any notice of default served upon the Landlord by Tenant, provided that prior to such notice Tenant has received notice (by way of service on Tenant of a copy of an assignment of rents and leases, or otherwise) of the address of such Mortgagee or ground lessor. Tenant further agrees that if Landlord shall have failed to cure such default within the time provided for in this Lease, then the Mortgagee or ground lessor shall have an additional thirty (30) days after receipt of notice thereof within which to cure such default or if such default cannot be cured within that time, then such additional notice time as may be necessary, if, within such thirty (30) days, any Mortgagee or ground lessor has commenced and is diligently pursuing the remedies necessary to cure such default (including commencement of foreclosure proceedings or other proceedings to acquire possession of the Real Property, if necessary to effect such cure). Such period of time shall be extended by any period within which such Mortgagee or ground lessor is prevented from commencing or pursuing such foreclosure proceedings or other proceedings to acquire possession of the Real Property by reason of Landlord’s bankruptcy. Until the time allowed as aforesaid for Mortgagee or ground lessor to cure such defaults has expired without cure, Tenant shall have no right to, and shall not, terminate this Lease on account of default. This Lease may not be modified or amended so as to reduce the Rent or shorten the Term, or so as to adversely affect in any other respect to any material extent the rights of the Landlord, nor shall this Lease be canceled or surrendered, without the prior written consent, in each instance, of the ground lessor or the Mortgagee.

Rejection or other refusal to accept or the inability to deliver because of changed address of which no notice was given, as

55

Notices may also be served by personal service upon any officer, director or partner of Landlord or Tenant, and shall be effective upon such service.
(d)    By giving to the other party at least thirty (30) days written notice thereof, either party shall have the right from time to time during the term of this Lease to change its respective addresses for notices, statements, demands and requests, provided such new address shall be within the United States of America.

Landlord may discontinue providing such facility at Landlord’s sole option at any time without incurring any liability. As a condition to the use of the exercise facility, Tenant and each of Tenant’s employees that uses the exercise facility shall first sign a written release in form and substance acceptable to Landlord. Landlord may change the rules and/or hours of the exercise facility at any time, and Landlord reserves the right to deny access to the exercise facility to anyone due to misuse of the facility or noncompliance with rules and regulations of the facility. To the extent permitted by Law, Tenant hereby indemnifies, and agrees to protect, defend and hold the Indemnitees harmless, against any and all actions, claims, demands, liability, costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and expenses for the defense thereof, arising from use of the exercise facility in the Project by Tenant, Tenant’s employees or invitees. The foregoing indemnity shall not operate to relieve an Indemnitee of liability to the extent such liability is caused by the gross negligence or willful and wrongful act of such Indemnitee. In case of any action or proceeding brought against the Indemnitees by reason of any such claim, upon notice from Landlord, Tenant covenants to defend such action or proceeding by counsel reasonably acceptable to Landlord. Landlord or Tenant may settle, compromise or dispose of any and all actions, claims and demands related to the foregoing indemnity, subject to the prior written approval of the other, which approval shall not unreasonably be withheld.
ARTICLE 26
OFAC
Landlord advises Tenant hereby that the purpose of this Article is to provide to the Landlord information and assurances to enable Landlord to comply with the law relating to OFAC.

56


Tenant hereby represents, warrants and covenants to Landlord, either that (i) Tenant is regulated by the SEC, FINRA or the Federal Reserve (a “Regulated Entity”) or (ii) neither Tenant nor any person or entity that directly or indirectly (a) controls Tenant or (b) has an ownership interest in Tenant of twenty-five percent (25%) or more, appears on the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (“OFAC List”) published by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
If, in connection with this Lease, there is one or more Guarantors of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, then Tenant further represents, warrants and covenants either that (i) any such Guarantor is a Regulated Entity or (ii) neither Guarantor nor any person or entity that directly or indirectly (a) controls such Guarantor or (b) has an ownership interest in such Guarantor of twenty-five percent (25%) or more, appears on the OFAC List.

ARTICLE 27
MISCELLANEOUS
27.01
LATE CHARGES
(a)    The Monthly Base Rent, Rent Adjustments and Rent Adjustment Deposits shall be due when and as specifically provided above. Except for such payments and late charges described below, which late charge shall be due when provided below (without notice or demand), all other payments required hereunder to Landlord shall be paid within twenty (20) days after Landlord’s demand therefor. All Rent and charges, except late charges, not paid when due shall bear interest from the date due until the date paid at the Default Rate in effect on the date such payment was due.
(b)    In the event Tenant is more than five (5) days late in paying any installment of Rent due under this Lease, Tenant shall pay Landlord a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of the delinquent installment of Rent. The parties agree that (i) such delinquency will cause Landlord to incur costs and expenses not contemplated herein, the exact amount of which will be difficult to calculate, including the cost and expense that will be incurred by Landlord in processing each delinquent payment of rent by Tenant, and (ii) the amount of such late charge represents a reasonable estimate of such costs and expenses and that such late charge shall be paid to Landlord for each delinquent payment in addition to all Rent otherwise due hereunder. The parties further agree that the payment of late charges and the payment of interest provided

57


for in subparagraph (a) above are distinct and separate from one another in that the payment of interest is to compensate Landlord for its inability to use the money improperly withheld by Tenant, while the payment of late charges is to compensate Landlord for its additional administrative expenses in handling and processing delinquent payments. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall provide written notice to Tenant with respect to the first late payment in any twelve month period and there shall not be a late charge becoming due unless Tenant fails to pay such sums within five (5) days after written notice thereof.
(c)    Payment of interest at the Default Rate and/or of late charges shall not excuse or cure any default by Tenant under this Lease, nor shall the foregoing provisions of this Article or any such payments prevent Landlord from exercising any right or remedy available to Landlord upon Tenant’s failure to pay Rent when due, including the right to terminate this Lease.
27.02
NO JURY TRIAL; VENUE; JURISDICTION
To the extent permitted by Law, each party hereto (which includes any assignee, successor, heir or personal representative of a party) shall not seek a jury trial, hereby waives trial by jury, and hereby further waives any objection to venue in the County in which the Project is located, and agrees and consents to personal jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California, in any action or proceeding or counterclaim brought by any party hereto against the other on any matter 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 Premises, or any claim of injury or damage, or the enforcement of any remedy under any statute, emergency or otherwise, whether any of the foregoing is based on this Lease or on tort law. No party will seek to consolidate any such action in which a jury has been waived with any other action in which a jury trial cannot or has not been waived. It is the intention of the parties that these provisions shall be subject to no exceptions. By execution of this Lease the parties agree that this provision may be filed by any party hereto with the clerk or judge before whom any action is instituted, which filing shall constitute the written consent to a waiver of jury trial pursuant to and in accordance with Section 631 of the California Code of Civil Procedure. No party has in any way agreed with or represented to any other party that the provisions of this Section will not be fully enforced in all instances. The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

27.04
OPTION
This Lease shall not become effective as a lease or otherwise until executed and delivered by both Landlord and Tenant. The submission of the Lease to Tenant does not constitute a

58


reservation of or option for the Premises, but when executed by Tenant and delivered to Landlord, the Lease shall constitute an irrevocable offer by Tenant in effect for fifteen (15) days to lease the Premises on the terms and conditions herein contained.
27.05
TENANT AUTHORITY
Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that it has full authority and power to enter into and perform its obligations under this Lease, that the person executing this Lease is fully empowered to do so, and that no consent or authorization is necessary from any third party.

MODIFICATION OF LEASE FOR BENEFIT OF MORTGAGEE
If Mortgagee of Landlord requires a modification of this Lease which shall not result in any increased cost or expense to Tenant or in any other substantial and adverse change in the rights and obligations of Tenant hereunder, then Tenant agrees that the Lease may be so modified.
27.08
EXCULPATION
Tenant agrees, on its behalf and on behalf of its successors and assigns, that any liability or obligation of Landlord in connection with this Lease shall only be enforced against Landlord’s equity interest in the Property up to a maximum of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) and in no event against any other assets of the Landlord, or Landlord’s officers or directors or partners, and that any liability of Landlord with respect to this Lease shall be so limited and Tenant shall not be entitled to any judgment in excess of such amount.
27.09
ACCORD AND SATISFACTION

No receipt of money by Landlord from Tenant after the termination of this Lease or Tenant’s right of possession of the Premises shall reinstate, continue or extend the Term. Receipt or acceptance of payment from anyone other than Tenant, including an assignee of Tenant, is not a waiver of any breach of

59


Article Ten, and Landlord may accept such payment on account of the amount due without prejudice to Landlord’s right to pursue any remedies available to Landlord.
27.10
LANDLORD’S OBLIGATIONS ON SALE OF BUILDING
In the event of any sale or other transfer of the Building, Landlord shall be entirely freed and relieved of all agreements and obligations of Landlord hereunder accruing or to be performed after the date of such sale or transfer, and any remaining liability of Landlord with respect to this Lease shall be limited to Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) and Tenant shall not be entitled to any judgment in excess of such amount.

WORKLETTER AGREEMENT
(TENANT BUILD - ALLOWANCE)
This Workletter Agreement (“Workletter”) is attached to and a part of a certain Lease by and between Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, a New York corporation, as Landlord, and GUARDANT HEALTH, INC., a Delaware corporation, as Tenant, for the Premises (the “Lease”). Terms used herein and not defined herein shall have the meaning of such terms as defined elsewhere in the Lease. For purposes of this Workletter, references to “State” and “City” shall mean the State and City in which the Building is located.
1.
AS IS Condition; Delivery.
Landlord shall deliver the Premises in broom clean condition free of debris and equipment but otherwise in the condition set forth in Section 2.1 of Rider 2 of the Lease; and Landlord shall not have any obligation to construct or install any tenant improvements or alterations or to pay for any such construction or installation except to the extent expressly provided in this Workletter. For purposes hereof, the “Base Building” (sometimes also referred to as the “Base Building Work”) shall mean the improvements made and work performed during the Building’s initial course of construction and modifications thereto, excluding all original and modified build-outs of any tenant spaces.
Notwithstanding any provision of this Workletter or the Amendment to the contrary, if and to the extent that upon delivery of the Premises,
(i)    the roof and roof membrane above the Premises;
(ii)    foundation (excluding slab) and structural components of the Base Building;
(iii)    Landlord’s fire sprinkler and life-safety systems, if any, of the Base Building;
(iv)    the electrical, water, sewer and plumbing systems of the Base Building serving the Premises (but only from the local utility’s systems to the point of entry into the Premises or to the meter or other point after which such system serves exclusively the Premises); and
(v)    the heating, ventilating and air condition systems exclusively serving the Premises.
are not in good working order and condition, and if and to the extent that there is any water damage to the walls, hard lid ceilings or ceiling tiles, except to the extent any of the foregoing

Exhibit B – Page 1


are to be removed, demolished or altered by Tenant, and within six (6) months after the Commencement Date Tenant gives Landlord written notice specifying what is not in good operating condition, Landlord shall make necessary repairs to put such item or items in good operating condition and any such costs shall be at Landlord’s sole cost and expense and shall not be included in Operating Expenses if Tenant provides Landlord with such written notice within six (6) months after the Commencement Date; provided, however, that Landlord shall have no obligation under this paragraph to the extent any of the foregoing conditions are caused by or resulting from any act or omission of Tenant or any of Tenant’s contractors, employees, agents, customers or invitees, including, without limitation, any work performed by or on behalf of Tenant.
2.
Landlord Work.
2.1    Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, subject to delays caused by Force Majeure or Tenant Delay (defined below), Landlord, at Landlord’s sole cost and expense, shall perform the work set forth on Exhibit B-1 hereto (“Landlord Work”), and within a reasonable time after delivery of possession shall Substantially Complete (defined below) the Landlord Work and leave the affected area in broom-clean condition with respect to Landlord Work (but Landlord shall not be obligated to do any clean-up or refuse removal related to construction of Tenant Work).
2.2    Tenant acknowledges and agrees that in order to deliver the Premises to Tenant on the schedule contemplated by this Lease, preparation for and performance of the Landlord Work will require access, work and construction within the Premises after delivery of possession to Tenant, and that Landlord and Landlord’s representatives and contractors shall have the right to enter the Premises at all times to perform such work until the Landlord Work is completed, and that such entry and work shall not constitute an eviction of Tenant in whole or in part and shall in no way excuse Tenant from performance of its obligations under the Lease. Tenant and Landlord acknowledge and agree that the Landlord Work and necessary coordination and cooperation to accomplish it will cause certain unavoidable level of disturbance, inconvenience, annoyance to Tenant’s use and enjoyment of the Premises, and that in performing such Landlord Work Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts not to unreasonably and materially interfere with Tenant’s construction, installations and business operations. Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord and Landlord’s contractors(s) to allow the Landlord Work and shall move Tenant’s trade fixtures, furnishings and equipment as reasonably requested by Landlord or Landlord’s contractor(s). The costs of such cooperation and moving, and any related disconnections and installations of Tenant’s trade fixtures, equipment, phones, furnishings and other personal property, shall be at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. To the extent that Tenant, its contractors or subcontractors delay the Substantial Completion of the Landlord Work, such delay shall be a Tenant Delay and the Landlord Work shall be deemed Substantially Complete on the date such Landlord Work would have been completed but for the delay caused by Tenant, its contractors or subcontractors.

Exhibit B – Page 2


2.3    The Landlord Work shall be constructed in accordance with all applicable Laws, in a good and workmanlike manner and using new materials and equipment of good quality. For purposes of this Workletter, “Substantially Complete” and “Substantial Completion” of the Landlord Work shall mean the completion of the Landlord Work, except for minor insubstantial details of construction, decoration or mechanical adjustments which remain to be done and which shall not unreasonably and materially interfere with Tenant’s regular business operations in the Premises. Substantial Completion shall be deemed to have occurred notwithstanding a requirement to complete “punchlist” or similar minor corrective work. Contemporaneously with or promptly after Substantial Completion of the Landlord Work, Tenant shall have the right to submit a written “punch list” to Landlord, setting forth any incomplete or defective item of construction. Landlord shall complete with reasonable diligence “punch list” items mutually agreed upon by Landlord and Tenant with respect to the Landlord Work. In addition, Landlord shall repair all latent defects in workmanship and materials of the Landlord Work, provided that Tenant gives Landlord written notice of any such latent defects within three (3) months after the date of Substantial Completion of the Landlord Work. For purposes of this Section, the term “latent defects” shall mean defects which were not readily apparent at the time the “punchlist” was formulated. All construction and installation resulting from the Landlord Work shall immediately become and remain the property of Landlord.
3.

FAIR MARKET RENTAL RATE
1.Definition of Fair Market Rental Rate. “Fair Market Rental Rate” shall mean the Monthly Base Rent equal to the monthly base rental per rentable square foot which a tenant would pay and which a willing landlord would accept for space comparable to the Premises in Seaport Centre and along the Highway 101 corridor in Redwood City, Redwood Shores, San Carlos and Belmont (the “Applicable Market”) for the period for which such rental is to be paid and for a lease on terms substantially similar to those of the Lease (including, without limitation, those applicable to Taxes, Operating Expenses and exclusions, but also considering so-called net and triple net leases, and leases utilizing operating expense stops or base years, and making appropriate adjustment between such leases and this Lease, as described below), based on prevailing market conditions in the Applicable Market at the time such determination is made (“Comparable Transactions”). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Comparable Transactions shall be for a term similar to the term of tenancy and for space comparable in use, floor levels, view and orientation, square footage and location within the Building and in the Applicable Market as the transaction for which Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined; however, leases of unusual or odd shaped spaces shall not be considered. In any determination of Fair Market Rental Rate, the stated or contract monthly net or base rental in Comparable Transactions shall be appropriately adjusted to take into account the different terms and conditions prevailing in such transactions and those present in the Lease, including, without limitation: (a) the extent to which average annual expenses and taxes per rentable square foot payable by tenants in Comparable Transactions vary from those payable by Tenant under the Lease, and so, for example, if the Lease provides for payment of Rent Adjustments and/or certain Operating Expenses on the basis of increases over a base year, then the rate of Monthly Base Rent under the Lease shall be based upon a step-up to change the calendar year which serves as the base year for calculation of the base for such Operating Expenses for the Option Term to be the full calendar year in which the Option Term commences, and such step-up shall be considered in the determination of the Fair Market Rental Rate; (b) tenant improvements, value of existing tenant improvements, the concessions, if any, being given by landlords in Comparable Transactions, such as parking charge abatement, free rent or rental abatement applicable after substantial completion of any tenant improvements (and no adjustment shall be made for any free or abated rent during any construction periods), loans at below-market interest rates, moving allowances, space planning allowances, lease takeover payments and work allowances, as compared to any tenant improvement, refurbishment or repainting allowance given to Tenant under the Lease for the space for which Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined; (c) the brokerage commissions, fees and bonuses payable by landlords in Comparable Transactions (whether to tenant’s agent, such landlord or any person or entity affiliated with such landlord), as compared to any such amounts payable by Landlord to the broker(s) identified with respect to the transaction for which Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined; (d) the time value of money; (e) any material difference between the definition of rentable area and the ratio of project

rentable to useable square feet in Comparable Transactions, as compared to such figures applicable to the space for which Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined; and (f) the extent to which charges for parking by tenants in Comparable Transactions vary from those payable by Tenant under the Lease.
2.    Sealed Estimates. In the event the Lease requires Fair Market Rental Rate to be determined in accordance with this Exhibit, Landlord and Tenant shall meet within ten (10) business days thereafter and each simultaneously submit to the other in a sealed envelope its good faith estimate of Fair Market Rental Rate (the “Estimates”). If the higher Estimate is not more than one hundred five percent (105%) of the lower Estimate, then Fair Market Rental Rate shall be the average of the two Estimates. If such simultaneous submission of Estimates does not occur within such ten (10) business day period, then either party may by notice to the other designate any reasonable time within five (5) business days thereafter and any reasonable place at or near the Building for such meeting to take place. In the event only one party submits an Estimate at that meeting, such Estimate shall be Fair Market Rental. In the event neither party submits an Estimate at that meeting, the transaction for which Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined shall be deemed cancelled and of no further force or effect.
3.    Selection of Arbitrators. If the higher Estimate is more than one hundred five percent (105%) of the lower Estimate, then either Landlord or Tenant may, by written notice to the other within five (5) business days after delivery of Estimates at the meeting, require that the disagreement be resolved by arbitration. In the event neither party gives such notice, the transaction for which Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined shall be deemed cancelled and of no further force or effect. Within five (5) business days after such notice, the parties shall select as arbitrators three (3) mutually acceptable independent MAI appraisers with experience in real estate activities, including at least five (5) years experience in appraising comparable space in the Applicable Market (“Qualified Appraisers”). If the parties cannot timely agree on such arbitrators, then within the following five (5) business days, each shall select and inform the other party of one (1) Qualified Appraiser and within a third period of five (5) business days, the two appraisers (or if only one (1) has been duly selected, such single appraiser) shall select as arbitrators a panel of three additional Qualified Appraisers, which three arbitrators shall proceed to determine Fair Market Rental Rate pursuant to Section 4 of this Exhibit. Both Landlord and Tenant shall be entitled to present evidence supporting their respective positions to the panel of three arbitrators.
4.    Arbitration Procedure. Once a panel of arbitrators has been selected as provided above, then as soon thereafter as practicable each arbitrator shall select one of the two Estimates as the one which, in its opinion, is closer to Fair Market Rental Rate. Upon an Estimate’s selection by two (2) of the arbitrators, it shall be the applicable Fair Market Rental Rate and such selection shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. If the arbitrators collectively determine that expert advice is reasonably necessary to assist them in determining Fair Market Rental Rate, then they may retain one or more qualified persons, including but not limited to legal counsel, brokers, architects or engineers, to provide such expert advice. The party whose Estimate is not

Exhibit D - Page 2


chosen by the arbitrators shall pay the costs of the arbitrators and any experts retained by the arbitrators. Any fees of any counsel or expert engaged directly by Landlord or Tenant, however, shall be borne by the party retaining such counsel or expert.
5.    Rent Pending Determination of Fair Market Rental Rate. In the event that the determination of Fair Market Rental Rate has not been concluded prior to commencement of the applicable rental period for the applicable space for which the Fair Market Rental Rate is being determined, Tenant shall pay Landlord Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustment Deposits as would apply under Landlord’s Estimate pursuant to Section 2 of this Exhibit until the Fair Market Rental Rate is determined. In the event that the Fair Market Rental Rate subsequently determined is different from the amount paid for the applicable period, then within thirty (30) days after such determination, Tenant shall pay Landlord any greater amounts due and Landlord shall credit Tenant (against the next Monthly Base Rent installments due) for any reduction in the amounts due.

RIDER 2
ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS
This Rider 2 (“Rider”) is attached to and a part of a certain Lease by METROPOLITAN LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, a New York corporation, as Landlord, and GUARDANT HEALTH, INC., a Delaware corporation (for purposes of this Rider, “Tenant”), as Tenant, for the Premises as described therein (the “Lease”).
SECTION 1.
DEFINED TERMS; FORCE AND EFFECT
Capitalized terms used in this Rider shall have the same meanings set forth in the Lease except as otherwise specified herein and except for terms capitalized in the ordinary course of punctuation. This Rider forms a part of the Lease. Should any inconsistency arise between this Rider and any other provision of the Lease as to the specific matters which are the subject of this Rider, the terms and conditions of this Rider shall control.
SECTION 2.
CONDITION OF PREMISES; DELIVERY; CONSTRUCTION PERIOD; COMMENCEMENT DATE; TERM
2.1.    AS-IS Condition. Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing within six (6) months after the Commencement Date of any defects in the base Building electrical, heating, ventilation and air conditioning and plumbing systems located in or serving the Premises (“Defects”). Except for Defects stated in such notice, Tenant shall be conclusively deemed to have accepted the Premises “AS IS” in the condition existing on the date Tenant first takes possession, and to have waived all claims relating to the condition of the Premises. Landlord shall proceed diligently to correct the Defects stated in such notice unless Landlord disputes the existence of any such Defects, provided, however, that Landlord shall have no obligation under this paragraph to the extent any of such Defects are caused by or resulting from any act or omission of Tenant or any of Tenant’s contractors, employees, agents, customers or invitees, including, without limitation, any work performed by or on behalf of Tenant. In the event of any dispute as to the existence of any such Defects, the reasonable decision of Landlord shall be final and binding on the parties. No agreement of Landlord to alter, remodel, decorate, clean or improve the Premises or the Real Property and no representation regarding the condition of the Premises or the Real Property has been made by or on behalf of Landlord to Tenant, except as may be specifically stated in this Lease. On or before the Delivery Date, Landlord shall perform a survey of the roof and existing HVAC units and shall repair HVAC units and the roof to the extent necessary.
2.2.    Projected Delivery Date; Delivery Date; Commencement Date: Tenant’s Obligations During Construction Period; Term.

Rider 2 - Page 1


(a)    Landlord shall tender to Tenant possession of the Premises no later than the date which is one (1) days after the execution of this Lease by Landlord and Tenant (the “Projected Delivery Date”). On the date Landlord actually tenders to Tenant possession of the Premises (the “Delivery Date”), the Premises shall be subject to, and Tenant shall observe and perform, all the conditions and covenants applicable to Tenant under this Lease, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Rider. During the period (the “Construction Period”) from the Delivery Date until the Commencement Date (defined below), in recognition of Tenant’s construction and installations in, and preparation of, the Premises for the use and occupancy permitted by this Lease, Tenant shall not be obligated to pay Monthly Base Rent, Rent Adjustment Deposits or Rent Adjustments. The Term of this Lease shall be as shown in Section 1.01(5) of the Basic Lease Provisions and the Commencement Date of the Term shall be the date which is the earlier to occur of (i) the date Tenant commences its business operations in the Premises, or (ii) two hundred (200) days after the Delivery Date.
(b)    Within thirty (30) days following the occurrence of the Commencement Date, upon request by Landlord, Tenant and Landlord shall enter into an agreement (which is attached to this Lease as Rider 1) confirming the Commencement Date and the Expiration Date. If Tenant fails to enter into such agreement, then the Commencement Date and the Expiration Date shall be the dates designated by Landlord in such agreement.
2.3    Failure to Deliver Possession. If Landlord shall be unable to give possession of the Premises on the Projected Delivery Date by reason of the following: (i) the holding over or retention of possession of any tenant, tenants or occupants, or (ii) the Landlord Work, if any, is not Substantially Complete, or (iii) for any other reason, then Landlord shall not be subject to any liability for the failure to give possession on said date. Under such circumstances, by operation of Section 2.2 above, the Delivery Date and Commencement Date are automatically adjusted and determined in relation to the date Landlord actually tenders possession of the Premises to Tenant. No such failure to deliver possession on the originally scheduled Projected Delivery Date shall affect the validity of this Lease or the obligations of the Tenant hereunder. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions to the contrary, if Landlord has not Substantially Completed the Landlord Work by May 31, 2015 (the “Outside Completion Date”), Tenant shall be entitled to a rent abatement following the Commencement Date of One Thousand Nine Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($1,900.00) for every day in the period beginning on the Outside Completion Date and ending on the Commencement Date; provided, however, that the Outside Completion Date shall be delayed by the number of days that Landlord’s delivery of the Premises to Tenant is delayed due Tenant Delays and Force Majeure delays, if any. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions of this Section to the contrary, if Landlord has not Substantially Completed the Landlord Work on or before the Sunset Date (defined below), then, as Tenant’s sole and exclusive remedy, Tenant shall have the option to terminate this Lease exercisable by giving written notice to Landlord within three (3) business days after the Sunset Date. If Tenant does not timely give notice of its election to terminate this Lease as aforesaid and delivery of possession does not occur on or before the date which is thirty (30) days following

Rider 2 - Page 2


the Sunset Date, then Tenant shall again have such option to terminate this Lease in the manner described above and such date shall constitute the new Sunset Date; it being the intention of the parties that Tenant shall have a recurring termination option after each such thirty (30) day period following the initial Sunset Date if Landlord has not tendered possession by the end of each such thirty (30) day period. As used in this Lease, “Sunset Date” means the initial Sunset Date of July 1, 2015, and any succeeding new Sunset Dates (at thirty (30) day intervals after the initial Sunset Date), and each such Sunset Date, as applicable, shall be extended by the number of days of delay due to Force Majeure plus the number of days of Tenant Delay, if any. On or before the Sunset Date, if such date includes any period of Force Majeure or Tenant Delay, Landlord shall give Tenant written notice of the resulting calendar date which is the Sunset Date.
SECTION 3    SIGNAGE
(a)    Signage Generally. Tenant shall have the right to install signage listing its name and/or logo on the exterior glass near the suite entry of the Premises, all subject to Landlord’s prior written consent and conformity to Building standard signage. All such initial signage shall be procured and installed at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. Any such signage also shall be maintained, repaired, restored and removed by Tenant at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. Any change in such initial signage shall be only with Landlord’s prior written consent, shall conform to Building standard signage and shall be at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. Any such signage shall comply with any applicable recorded covenants, conditions and restrictions, and all Laws, and shall be consistent with class A standards.
(b)    Exterior Signs Right.
(1)    Grant of Right. Tenant shall have the non-exclusive right to place its name and/or logo on the monument for the Building and the exterior glass of the Premises near the main entrance of the Premises (collectively, “Exterior Signs”). Nothing contained herein shall prohibit or limit Landlord in granting other tenants of the Project or Building rights to install signs on or at the Project or Building or space leased to such tenants.
(2)    General Conditions & Requirements. The size, type, style, materials, color, method of installation and exact location of the sign, and the contractor for and all work in connection with the sign, contemplated by this Section shall (i) be subject to Tenant’s compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and ordinances; (ii) be consistent with the design of the Building and the Project; and (iii) be further subject to Landlord’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Except as provided in Section 6.06 of the Lease, Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, procure, install, maintain and remove such Exterior Signs, as well as maintain the area on which the Exterior Signs are mounted watertight and in good appearance, maintain insurance covering the Exterior Signs, its operation and all work in connection therewith, and arrange for electrical service, if any, for the Exterior Signs.

Rider 2 - Page 3


(3)    Removal & Restoration. Upon the expiration or termination of the Exterior Signs right, but in no event later than the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of the Lease, Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, remove such sign(s) and shall repair and restore the area in which the sign(s) was located to its condition prior to installation of such sign.
(4)    Advance Notice; No Liens. Tenant shall keep the Building and Project free of all liens and the provisions of Article Nine shall apply with respect to all work and materials performed and provided in connection with such sign, and Tenant shall give Landlord at least ten (10) days prior written notice of the intended commencement of work in connection with such sign in order to allow Landlord time to post appropriate notices of non-responsibility.
(5)    Right Personal. The Building monument signage right under this Section is personal to Guardant Health, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and may not be used by, and shall not be transferable or assignable (voluntarily or involuntarily) to any person or entity except with respect to an assignment or sublease to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.01(e).
SECTION 3.    OPTION TO EXTEND.
(a)    Landlord hereby grants Tenant a single option to extend the Term of the Lease for an additional period of five (5) years (such period may be referred to as the “Option Term”), as to the entire Premises as it then exists, upon and subject to the terms and conditions of this Section (the “Option To Extend”), and provided that at the time of exercise of such option (and each Option, if more than one Option is granted): (i) Tenant must be conducting regular, active, ongoing business in, and be in occupancy (and occupancy by a subtenant, licensee or other party permitted or suffered by Tenant shall not satisfy such condition) of at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the Premises; and (ii) there has been no material adverse change in Tenant’s financial position from such position as of the date of execution of the Lease, as certified by Tenant’s chief executive officer or chief financial officer, and as supported by Tenant’s certified financial statements, copies of which shall be delivered to Landlord with Tenant’s written notice exercising its right hereunder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Landlord may reasonably conclude there has been a material adverse change if Tenant’s chief executive officer or chief financial officer do not certify there has been no such change.
(b)    Tenant’s election (the “Election Notice”) to exercise the Option To Extend must be given to Landlord in writing no earlier than the date which is twelve (12) months prior to the Expiration Date and no later than the date which is nine (9) months prior to the Expiration Date. If Tenant either fails or elects not to exercise the Option to Extend by not timely giving its Election Notice, then the Option to Extend shall be null and void, including, if more than one Option is granted, the then applicable Option to Extend and all further Options to Extend.
(c)    The Option Term (and each Option Term, if more than one Option is granted) shall commence immediately after the expiration of the preceding Term of the Lease. Tenant’s

Rider 2 - Page 4


leasing of the Premises during the Option Term shall be upon and subject to the same terms and conditions contained in the Lease except that (i) Tenant shall pay the “Option Term Rent”, defined and determined in the manner set forth in the immediately following Subsection; (ii) the Security Deposit shall be increased to an amount that is the same percentage or proportion of Option Term Rent as the prior amount of Security Deposit was in relation to Rent for the Term prior to the Option Term, but in no event shall the Security Deposit be decreased; and (iii) Tenant shall accept the Premises in its “as is” condition without any obligation of Landlord to repaint, remodel, repair, improve or alter the Premises or to provide Tenant any allowance therefor, except to the extent tenants leasing space in Comparable Transactions receive an allowance pursuant to the definition of Fair Market Rental Rate defined in Exhibit D hereto, provided, however, Landlord by notice given to Tenant within thirty (30) days after final determination of the Fair Market Rental Rate, may elect to provide, in lieu of such allowance for alterations to the Premises, a rent credit equal to the amount of the allowance that would have otherwise been given, credited toward the rents applicable only to the Premises and due starting after such rent obligation commences. If Tenant timely and properly exercises the Option To Extend, references in the Lease to the Term shall be deemed to mean the preceding Term as extended by the Option Term unless the context clearly requires otherwise.
(d)    The Option Term Rent shall mean the sum of the Monthly Base Rent at the Fair Market Rental Rate (as defined in Exhibit D) plus Rent Adjustments and/or certain Operating Expenses (if applicable, based upon a step-up to change the base year or base amount for calculation of Operating Expenses in connection with determination of the Fair Market Rental Rate) plus other charges pursuant to the Lease payable to Landlord. The determination of Fair Market Rental Rate and Option Term Rent shall be made by Landlord, in the good faith exercise of Landlord’s business judgment. Within forty-five (45) days after Tenant’s exercise of the Option To Extend, Landlord shall notify Tenant of Landlord’s determination of the Fair Market Rental Rate and Option Term Rent for the Premises. Tenant may, within fifteen (15) days after receipt thereof, deliver to Landlord a written notice either: (i) accepting Landlord’s determination, in which case the extension shall be effective and binding (subject to Subsection (f) below) at the accepted rate; or (ii) setting forth Tenant’s good faith estimate, in which case Landlord and Tenant will promptly confer and attempt to agree upon the Fair Market Rental Rate and Option Term Rent. Tenant’s failure to timely deliver such notice within such fifteen (15) day period shall be deemed its cancellation of the Option. In the event Tenant has delivered notice setting forth Tenant’s different estimate, but no agreement in writing between Tenant and Landlord on Fair Market Rental Rate and Option Term Rent is reached within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s estimate, the Fair Market Rental Rate shall be determined in accordance with the terms of Exhibit D. The Preceding Rent shall mean the sum of the Monthly Base Rent payable by Tenant under this Lease calculated at the rate applicable for the last full month of the Term preceding the Option Term plus the Rent Adjustments payable by Tenant under the Lease (if applicable, using the base year for calculation of Base Operating Expenses applicable for the last full month of the Term preceding the Option Term), plus other charges pursuant to the Lease payable to Landlord. To the extent that Tenant pays directly the utility or

Rider 2 - Page 5


service provider for utilities or services which Tenant is to obtain directly pursuant to the Lease, Tenant shall continue to pay such amounts, but such amounts shall not be counted as part of the Preceding Rent or the Fair Market Rental Rate as used herein.
(e)    Promptly after final determination of the Fair Market Rental Rate, Landlord shall prepare a memorandum confirming the specific dates, amounts and terms of the extension for the Option Term in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Option to Extend, in the form of an amendment to the Lease, and Tenant shall execute such amendment within five (5) business days after Landlord and Tenant agree to the form of the proposed amendment and Landlord shall execute it promptly after Tenant. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, the failure of Landlord to prepare such amendment or of either party to execute an amendment shall not affect the validity and effectiveness of the extension for the Option Term in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Option to Extend.
(f)    Upon the occurrence of any of the following events, Landlord shall have the option, exercisable at any time prior to commencement of the Option Term, to terminate all of the provisions of this Section with respect to the Option to Extend, whereupon any prior or subsequent exercise of this Option to Extend shall be of no force or effect:
(i)    Tenant’s failure to timely exercise or timely to perform the Option to Extend in strict accordance with the provisions of this Section.
(ii)    The existence at the time Tenant exercises the Option to Extend or at the commencement of the Option Term of a Default on the part of Tenant under the Lease or of any state of facts which with the passage of time or the giving of notice, or both, would constitute such a Default.
(iii)    Tenant’s third Default under the Lease prior to the commencement of the Option Term, notwithstanding that all such Defaults may subsequently be cured.
(g)    Without limiting the generality of any provision of the Lease, time shall be of the essence with respect to all of the provisions of this Section.
(h)    This Option to Extend is personal to Guardant Health, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and may not be used by, and shall not be transferable or assignable (voluntarily or involuntarily) to any person or entity except with respect to an assignment or sublease to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.01(e).
SECTION 4.    STANDBY GENERATOR.
(a)    During the Term, Tenant shall have the right, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, to install, operate, maintain, repair, replace, remove and use Standby Generator Installations (as defined below), upon and subject to the terms and conditions of this Section and the Lease. The “Standby Generator Installations” shall mean (i) one standby diesel generator to be installed or

Rider 2 - Page 6


housed, along with its diesel fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 150 gallons (and such fuel shall also be a Permitted Hazardous Material), above ground, outside the Building in an existing walled enclosure behind the Premises, in an area no larger than approximately 11 feet by 17 feet (ii) wiring, cabling and conduit (subject to Subsection (b) below) from it to the separate electrical circuit(s) serving only the Premises, and all associated switchover equipment and circuits to connect & operate the generator on a standby basis without interference with or damage to any utility systems of the Project or any other equipment of Landlord or other occupants of the Project; and (iii) all ancillary containment vessels, pipe, ventilation systems and equipment. The Standby Generator Installations shall be for the sole purpose of providing Tenant electrical power for certain operations in the Premises in the event of any interruption in the supply of electricity, and shall not be used at any other times or in any other way except for occasional testing, as necessary, at times subject to Landlord’s prior written approval. This right to Standby Generator Installations is further conditioned upon the following: (1) in all respects, such right shall be subject to Tenant seeking and obtaining from applicable governmental authorities and the electric utility serving the Project all approvals and permits to install, operate, maintain, repair, replace and use such Standby Generator Installations; (2) except if and as otherwise specified above, the exact location, size and all specifications of such Standby Generator Installations, shall be subject to Landlord’s prior written approval, in its reasonable discretion; (3) without limiting the generality of any other provisions of the Lease, Tenant shall install, operate, maintain, repair, replace, remove and use Standby Generator Installations in compliance with the Lease, all Environmental Laws and all other Laws; (4) without limiting the generality of any other provisions of the Lease, the Standby Generator Installations, whether located in the Premises or elsewhere at the Project, shall be subject to and covered by the indemnities by Tenant under the Lease, including, without limitation, those of Sections 7.02 and 17.02 of the Lease, and shall be deemed to be in and part of the Premises under all indemnities with respect to the Premises; and (5) notwithstanding any provision of the Lease to the contrary, Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, shall, as of the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease, remove all Hazardous Material introduced to the Property by Tenant or any Tenant Parties (as defined in Section 7.02 of the Lease), and, if requested by Landlord, shall remove the Standby Generator Installations and restore the Property to its condition immediately prior to the installation of the Standby Generator Installations. Landlord has no obligation to seek or obtain from applicable governmental authorities or the electric utility serving the Real Property any approvals or permits to install, operate, maintain, repair, replace, remove or use such Standby Generator Installations. Landlord makes no representation or warranty either (x) as to whether or not the Standby Generator Installations comply with Law or will be acceptable to or approved by applicable governmental authorities, the electric utility serving the Real Property or (y) as to the suitability of space at the Project for such installations.
(b)    The installations contemplated by this Section 4 (this “Section”) shall be part of the Tenant Work pursuant to the Workletter if proposed to be done preparatory to or in connection with Tenant’s initial occupancy of the Premises and, if proposed to be done thereafter, shall be Tenant Alterations subject to Article Nine of the Lease, except, in each case, Landlord’s

Rider 2 - Page 7


prior written approval in Landlord’s sole discretion shall be required where specified in this Section, including the location and method of installation of conduits and related equipment in any area outside each Building in which the Premises is located, at the entry point to each such Building and in any of the horizontal and vertical pathways or other Common Areas of each such Building. With respect to all conduit for electrical connections contemplated by this Section, Landlord shall permit Tenant to install a single conduit (no larger than four (4) inch conduit to connect Tenant’s standby generator to the separate electrical circuit(s) serving only the Premises. Further, with respect to any installations, maintenance, repair, replacement or removal of any installations outside the Premises, whether outside the Building or in the Building’s horizontal or vertical pathways or similar areas whose use is shared by Landlord or other occupants of the Building or other service providers to the Building, such work shall be performed by contractors reasonably approved by Landlord and subject to the direction of Landlord, and Landlord reserves the right to restrict and control access to such areas. All installations pursuant to this Section (whether as part of or after the initial installations) and their maintenance, repair, replacement, removal and use shall not adversely affect the operation, maintenance or replacement of any Building Systems, and shall be subject to compliance with other provisions of the Lease. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant shall be responsible to provide all switchover equipment and circuits to connect & operate the generator on a standby basis without interference with or damage to any Building Systems or any other equipment of Landlord or other occupants of the Project. With respect to all operations (including all installations, maintenance, repair, replacement, removal and use) with respect to this Section, Tenant shall conduct its business and control its agents, employees and invitees in such manner as not to create any nuisance, or interfere with, annoy or disturb any other licensee or tenant of the Building or Landlord in its operation of the Building. The Standby Generator Installations shall be deemed to be trade fixtures of Tenant, shall be covered by Tenant’s insurance under the Lease, and Landlord shall have no obligation to repair or rebuild them in the event of fire or other loss. Landlord reserves the right to relocate the Standby Generator Installations or any part thereof upon not less than sixty (60) days prior written notice, and Landlord shall pay the actual and reasonable expenses of physically moving and reconnecting any such relocated installation.
(c)    There shall be no additional Monthly Base Rent payable for this right.
SECTION 5.    OFFER RIGHT.
(a)    Landlord hereby grants Tenant a one-time right to lease the Offer Space (defined below) if and to the extent such space is Available (defined below) during the period beginning on the date of execution of this Lease and expiring twelve (12) months prior to the Expiration Date of the Term or the Option Term if the Option to Extend is properly exercised by Tenant (the “Offer Period”), upon and subject to the terms and conditions of this Section (the “Offer Right”), and provided that at the time of exercise of such right: (i) Tenant must be conducting regular, active, ongoing business in, and be in occupancy (and occupancy by a subtenant, licensee or other party permitted or suffered by Tenant shall not satisfy such condition) of the entire

Premises; and (ii) there has been no material adverse change in Tenant’s financial position from such position as of the date of execution of the Lease, as certified by Tenant’s chief executive officer or chief financial officer, and as supported by Tenant’s certified financial statements, copies of which shall be delivered to Landlord with Tenant’s written notice exercising its right hereunder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Landlord may reasonably conclude there has been a material adverse change if Tenant’s chief executive officer or chief financial officer do not certify there has been no such change.
(b)    “Offer Space” shall mean the leaseable space consisting of 15,021 rentable square feet and known as 545 Penobscot Drive of the Building. The term “Available” shall mean that the space in question is either: (1) vacant and free and clear of all “Prior Rights” (defined below); or (2) space as to which Landlord has received a proposal, or Landlord is making a proposal, for a lease or rights of any nature applicable in the future when such space would be free and clear of all Prior Rights. The term “Prior Rights” shall mean renewal rights of Ivy Sports Medicine, LLC pursuant to a lease or written agreement which was entered into on or before the beginning of the Offer Period.
(c)    Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit or prevent Landlord from marketing, discussing or negotiating with any other party for a lease of, or rights of any nature as to, any part of the Offer Space, but during the Offer Period before Landlord makes any written proposal to any other party (other than a party with Prior Rights) for any Offer Space which becomes Available (including giving a written response to any proposal or offer received from another party), or contemporaneously with making any such proposal, and in any event within sixty (60) days after such space becomes vacant and free and clear of all “Prior Rights”, Landlord shall give Tenant written notice (“Landlord’s Notice”), which notice identifies the space Available, its rentable area, Landlord’s estimate of the projected date such space will be vacant and deliverable to Tenant, Landlord’s estimate of the applicable Fair Market Rental Rate, as defined in Exhibit D hereto (“Landlord’s Estimate”), and if applicable, base year or base amount (if different from that for the rest of the Premises) with respect to Operating Expenses. For the period of five (5) business days after Landlord gives Landlord’s Notice (the “Election Notice Period”), Tenant shall have the right to give Landlord irrevocable written notice (“Election Notice”) of Tenant’s election to lease all (and not less than all) the Offer Space identified in Landlord’s Notice.
(d)    In the event Tenant duly and timely delivers its Election Notice to Landlord, such exercise shall thereby create and constitute a binding lease of the Offer Space by and to Tenant, subject to suspension or termination of such right pursuant to Subsection (h) below, upon and subject to the same terms and conditions contained in the Lease except as follows: (i) Tenant shall accept the Offer Space in its then “AS IS” condition, but broom clean and free of all tenants or occupants, without any obligation of Landlord to repaint, remodel, improve or alter such space for Tenant’s occupancy or to provide Tenant any allowance therefor except to the extent tenants leasing space in Comparable Transactions receive an allowance pursuant to the definition of Fair Market Rental Rate, provided, however, Landlord, by notice given to Tenant within thirty (30)

Rider 2 - Page 9


days after receipt of Tenant’s Election Notice, may elect to provide, in lieu of such allowance for alterations to the Offer Space, a rent credit equal to the amount of the allowance that would have otherwise been given, credited toward the rents applicable only to the Offer Space and due starting after such rent obligation commences; (ii) Landlord shall deliver the Offer Space to Tenant no later than thirty (30) days after the later of the date on which Landlord regains possession of such space or the date on which Landlord receives Tenant’s Election Notice; (iii) upon such delivery, the Offer Space shall be part of the Premises under the Lease, such that the term “Premises” in the Lease thereafter shall mean both the space leased immediately prior to such delivery and the Offer Space, and shall be leased for the remaining term of the Lease (including any extension pursuant to the Option to Extend); (iv) starting on such delivery date, with respect to the Offer Space Tenant shall pay Monthly Base Rent equal to the Fair Market Rental Rate, with Fair Market Rental Rate defined and determined as set forth herein and in Exhibit D; (v) starting on such delivery date, with respect to the Offer Space Tenant shall additionally pay Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses or increases in Operating Expenses, as applicable under the Lease, with Tenant’s Share recalculated to reflect addition of the Offer Space, or with a separate Tenant’s Share for the Offer Space if the Lease provides for a base year or base amount for calculation of Operating Expenses and if the base year or base amount for the Offer Space is different from that for the rest of the Premises; (vi) starting on such delivery date, Tenant shall additionally pay other charges payable by Tenant for utilities and otherwise with respect to the Offer Space; (vii) the number of unreserved parking spaces rented to Tenant shall increase at the rate of three and three-tenths (3.3) spaces per one thousand (1,000) square feet of Usable Area at no additional charge during the original Term and at Landlord’s then-posted rate during the Option Term; and (vii) the Security Deposit shall be increased to an amount that is the same percentage or proportion of Rent (after including Rent for the Offer Space) as the prior amount of Security Deposit was in relation to prior Rent.
(e)    Landlord’s Estimate set forth in Landlord’s Notice shall be conclusive and binding as the Monthly Base Rent payable for the Offer Space in Landlord’s Notice unless Tenant notifies Landlord in Tenant’s Election Notice that Tenant elects to lease the subject Offer Space but disputes Landlord’s Estimate and specifies in detail the reasons therefor and states Tenant’s good faith estimate of the Fair Market Rental Rate. If the dispute is not resolved within ten (10) business days after Landlord receives Tenant’s Election Notice as described above, then the Fair Market Rental Rate shall be determined in accordance with the terms of Exhibit D.
(f)    Promptly after final determination of the Fair Market Rental Rate, Landlord shall prepare a memorandum confirming the specific dates, amounts and terms of the lease of the subject Offer Space in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Offer Right, in the form of an amendment to the Lease. Tenant shall execute such amendment within five (5) business days after receipt of the proposed amendment and Landlord shall execute it promptly after Tenant. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, the failure of Landlord to prepare such amendment or of either party to execute an amendment shall not affect the validity and

effectiveness of the lease of the Offer Space in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Offer Right.
(g)    If Tenant either fails or elects not to exercise its Offer Right as to the Offer Space covered by Landlord’s Notice by not giving its Election Notice within the Election Notice Period, then Tenant’s Offer Right shall terminate, and be null and void, as to the subject space identified in the applicable Landlord’s Notice (but not as to any Offer Space subject to this Offer Right which has not become Available and been included in a Landlord’s Notice), and at any time thereafter Landlord shall be free to lease and/or otherwise grant options or rights to the subject space on any terms and conditions whatsoever free and clear of the Offer Right.
(h)    During any period that Tenant does not occupy the entire Premises or that there is an uncured default by Tenant under the Lease, or any state of facts which with the passage of time or the giving of notice, or both, would constitute such a default, the Offer Right shall not apply and shall be ineffective and suspended, and Landlord shall not be obligated to give a Landlord’s Notice as to any space which becomes Available during such suspension period, and Landlord shall not be obligated to negotiate (or enter any amendment) with respect to any Offer Space which was the subject of a pending Landlord’s Notice for which an amendment has not been fully executed, and during such suspension period Landlord shall be free to lease and/or otherwise grant options or rights to such space on any terms and conditions whatsoever free and clear of the Offer Right. The Offer Right shall terminate upon any of the following: (1) the termination of the Lease upon the occurrence of a Tenant default or otherwise; (2) Landlord’s recovery of possession of the Premises upon the occurrence of a Tenant default or otherwise; (3) rejection of the Lease in any bankruptcy proceeding; or (4) the failure of Tenant timely to exercise, give any notices, perform or agree, within any applicable time period specified above, with respect to any Offer Space which was the subject of any Landlord’s Notice.
(i)    The Offer Right is personal to Guardant Health, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and may not be used by, and shall not be transferable or assignable (voluntarily or involuntarily) to any person or entity except with respect to an assignment or sublease to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.01(e).
