whichever is less. If the other Party shall fail to procure and maintain the insurance required to be carried by it, the other Party may, but shall not be required to, procure and maintain the same.

the amount of Insurance carried or required, or by any deductibles applicable hereto. The Parties agree to have their respective property damage insurance carriers waive any right to subrogation that such companies may have against Lessor or Lessee,

brought against Lessor by reason of any of the foregoing matters, Lessee shall upon notice defend the same at Lessees expense by counsel reasonably satisfactory to Lessor and Lessor shall cooperate with Lessee in such defense. Lessor need not
have first paid any such claim In order to be defended or indemnified.
8.8 Exemption of Lessor and Its Agents from
Liability. Except to the extent resulting from Lessors gross negligence or willful misconduct, neither Lessor nor its agents shall be liable under any circumstances for. (i) injury or damage to the person or goods, wares, merchandise
or other property of Lessee, Lessees employees, contractors, invitees, customers, or any other person in or about the Premises, whether such damage or injury is caused by or results from fire, steam, electricity, gas, water or rain, indoor air
quality, the presence of mold or from the breakage, leakage, obstruction or other defects of pipes, fire sprinklers, wires, appliances, plumbing, HVAC or lighting fixtures, or from any other cause, whether the said Injury or damage results from
conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other portions of the building of which the Premises are a part, or from other sources or places, (ii) any damages arising from any act or neglect of any other tenant of Lessor or from the failure of
Lessor or its agents to enforce the provisions of any other lease in the Project, or (iii) injury to Lessees business or for any loss of income or profit therefrom. Instead, it is intended that Lessees sole recourse In the event of
such damages or Injury be to file a claim on the Insurance policy(ies) that Lessee is required to maintain pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 8.
8.9 Failure to Provide Insurance. Lessee acknowledges that any failure on its part to obtain or maintain the insurance required herein will expose Lessor to risks and potentially cause Lessor to
Incur costs not contemplated by this Lease, the extent of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, for any month or portion thereof that Lessee does not maintain the required insurance and/or does not provide Lessor with the
required binders or certificates evidencing the existence of the required insurance, the Base Rent shall be automatically increased without any requirement for notice to Lessee, by an amount equal to 10% of the then existing Base Rent or $100,
whichever is greater. The parties agree that such increase in Base Rent represents fair and reasonable compensation for the additional risk/costs that Lessor will incur by reason of Lessees failure to maintain the required insurance. Such
increase in Base Rent shall in no event constitute a waiver of Lessees Default or Breach with respect to the failure to maintain such insurance, prevent the exercise of any of the other rights and remedies granted hereunder, nor relieve Lessee
of its obligation to maintain the insurance specified in this Lease.

foregoing, if the required insurance was not in force or the insurance proceeds are not sufficient to effect such repair, the Insuring Party shall promptly contribute the shortage In proceeds (except as to the deductible which Is Lessees
responsibility) as and when required to complete said repairs. In the event, however, such shortage was due to the fact that, by reason of the unique nature of the improvements, full replacement cost Insurance coverage was not commercially
reasonable and available, Lessor shall have no obligation to pay for the shortage in insurance proceeds or to fully restore the unique aspects of the Premises If the shortage of Insurance proceeds exceeds $500.000 unless Lessee provides Lessor with
the funds to cover the excess over $500.000, or adequate assurance thereof, within 10 days following receipt of written notice of such shortage and request therefor. If Lessor receives said funds or adequate assurance thereof within said 10 day
period, the party responsible for making the repairs shall complete them as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect, If such funds or assurance are not received, Lessor may nevertheless elect by written

the repairs at Lessees expense), Lessor may either: (i) repair such damage as soon as reasonably possible at Lessors expense, in which event this lease shall continue In full force end effect, or (ii) if the cost of repairs
exceeds $500.000, terminate this Lease by giving written notice to Lessee within 30 days after receipt by Lessor of knowledge of the Occurrence of such damage. Such termination shall be effective 60 days following the date of such notice. In the
event Lessor elects to terminate this Lease, Lessee shall have the right within 10 days after receipt of the termination notice to give written notice to Lessor of Lessees commitment to pay for the repair of such damage In excess of $500.000

within 30 days after the date of occurrence of such damage. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Lessee at that time has an exercisable option to extend this Lease or to purchase the Premises, then Lessee may preserve this Lease by, (a) exercising
such option and (b) providing Lessor with any shortage in insurance proceeds (or adequate assurance thereof) needed to make the repairs on or before the earlier of (i) the date which is 10 days after Lessees receipt of Lessors
written notice purporting to terminate this Lease, or (ii) the day prior to the date upon which such option expires. If Lessee duly exercises such option during such period and provides Lessor with funds (or adequate assurance thereof) to cover
any shortage In Insurance proceeds, Lessor shall, at Lessors commercially reasonable expense, repair such damage as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall continue In full force and effect. If Lessee falls to exercise such option and
provide such funds or assurance during such period, then this Lease shall terminate on the date specified In the termination notice and Lessees option shall be extinguished.

is commenced within such 30 days, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect. Commence shall mean either the unconditional authorization of the preparation of the required plans, or the beginning of the actual work on the
Premises, whichever first occurs. Lessee shall also have the right to terminate this Lease if the damage is not substantially repaired within one hundred eighty (180) days with respect to a casualty limited to the Premises (e.g. a fire limited
to the Premises) or within three hundred sixty (360) days with respect to a casualty affecting the area in which the Premises are located (e.g. an earthquake); and, in order to exercise such termination rights, Lessee must give written notice
of termination to Lessor and any Lender of Lessor of which Lessee has actual notice, prior to substantial completion of such repairs.
9.7 Termination; Advance Payments. Upon termination of this Lease pursuant to Paragraph 6.2(g) or Paragraph 9, an equitable adjustment shall be made concerning advance Base Rent and any other advance payments made by Lessee to

10. Real Property Taxes.
10.1 Definition. As used herein, the term
Real Property Taxes shall include any form of assessment; real estate, general, special, ordinary or extraordinary, or rental levy or tax (other than inheritance, personal income or estate taxes); improvement bond; and/or license
fee imposed upon or levied against any legal or equitable interest of Lessor in the Premises or the Project, Lessors right to other income therefrom, and/or Lessors business of leasing, by any authority having the direct or indirect
power to tax and where the funds are generated with reference to the Building address and where the
Page 7 of 18
proceeds so generated are to be applied by the city, county or other local taxing authority of a jurisdiction within which the Premises are located. Real Property Taxes shall also include any
tax, fee, levy, assessment or charge, or any increase therein: (i) imposed by reason of events occurring during the term of this Lease, including but no limited to, a change in the ownership of the Premises, and (ii) levied or assessed on
machinery or equipment provided by Lessor to Lessee pursuant to this Lease.
10.2 Payment of Taxes. In addition to Base
Rent, Lessee shall pay to Lessor an amount equal to the Real Property Tax installment due at least 20 days prior to the applicable delinquency date. If any such installment shall cover any period of time prior to or after the expiration or
termination of this Lease, Lessees share of such installment shall be prorated. In the event Lessee incurs a late charge on any Rent payment, Lessor may estimate the current Real Property Taxes, and require that such taxes be paid in advance
to Lessor by Lessee monthly in advance with the payment of the Base Rent. Such monthly payments shall be an amount equal to the amount of the estimated installment of taxes divided by the number of months remaining before the month in which said
installment becomes delinquent. When the actual amount of the applicable tax bill is known, the amount of such equal monthly advance payments shall be adjusted as required to provide the funds needed to pay the applicable taxes. If the amount
collected by Lessor is insufficient to pay such Real Property Taxes when due, Lessee shall pay Lessor, upon demand, such additional sum as is necessary. Advance payments may be intermingled with other moneys of Lessor and shall not bear interest. In
the event of a Breach by Lessee in the performance of its obligations under this Lease, then any such advance payments may be treated by Lessor as an additional Security Deposit. Notwithstanding the definition of Real Property Taxes set forth in
Paragraph 10.1, during the five (5) year Original Term only, the term Real Property Taxes shall not include (and accordingly Lessor shall be solely responsible for) fifty percent (50%) of any increase in Real Property Taxes resulting from
a reassessment of the Premises arising out of a change in ownership of all or any portion of the Premises occurring during the Original Term. The limitations set forth in the foregoing sentence shall not apply to Real Property Taxes payable for the
term of any option regardless of when any such change in ownership occurred.
10.3 Joint Assessment. If the Premises
are not separately assessed, Lessees liability shall be an equitable proportion of the Real Property Taxes for all of the land and improvements included within the tax parcel assessed, such proportion to be conclusively determined by Lessor
from the respective valuations assigned in the assessors work sheets or such other information as may be reasonably available.
10.4 Personal Property Taxes. Lessee shall pay, prior to delinquency, all taxes assessed against and levied upon Lessee Owned Alterations, Utility Installations, Trade Fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all personal property of
Lessee. When possible, Lessee shall cause its Lessee Owned Alterations and Utility Installations, Trade Fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal property to be assessed and billed separately from the real property of Lessor. If any of
Lessees said property shall be assessed with Lessors real property, Lessee shall pay Lessor the taxes attributable to Lessees property within 10 days after receipt of a written statement setting forth the taxes applicable to
11. Utilities and Services. Lessee shall pay for all water, gas, heat, light, power,
telephone, trash disposal and other utilities and services supplied to the Premises, together with any taxes thereon. If any such services are not separately metered or billed to Lessee, Lessee shall pay a reasonable proportion, to be determined by
Lessor, of all charges jointly metered or billed. There shall be no abatement of rent and Lessor shall not be liable in any respect whatsoever for the inadequacy, stoppage, interruption or discontinuance of any utility or service due to riot,
strike, labor dispute, breakdown, accident, repair or other cause beyond Lessors reasonable control or in cooperation with governmental request or directions.

cumulative basis, of more than forth-nine percent (49%) or more of the voting control of Lessee shall constitute a change in control for this purpose.
(c) The involvement of Lessee or its assets in any transaction, or series of transactions (by way of merger, sale, acquisition, financing, transfer, leveraged buy-out or otherwise), whether or not a
formal assignment or hypothecation of this Lease or Lessees assets occurs, which results or will result in a reduction of the Net worth of Lessee by an amount greater than 25% of such Net Worth as it was represented at the time of execution of
this Lease or at the time of the most recent assignment to which Lessor has consented, or as it exists immediately prior to said transaction or transactions constituting such reduction, whichever was or is greater, shall be considered an assignment
of this Lease to which Lessor may withhold its consent. Net Worth of Lessee shall mean the net worth of Lessee (excluding any guarantors) established under generally accepted accounting principles.
(d) an assignment or subletting without consent shall, at
Lessors option, be a Default curable after notice per Paragraph 13.1 (c), or a noncurable Breach without the necessity of any notice and grace period. If Lessor elects to treat such unapproved assignment or subletting as a noncurable Breach,
Lessor may either; (i) terminate this Lease, or (ii) upon 30 days written notice, increase the monthly Base Rent to 110% of the Base Rent then in effect. Further, in the event of such Breach and rental adjustment, (i) the purchase
price of any option to purchase the Premises held by Lessee shall be subject to similar adjustment to 110% of the price previously in effect, and (ii) all fixed and non-fixed rental adjustments scheduled during the remainder of the Lease term

(g) Notwithstanding the
foregoing, allowing a de minimis portion of the Premises, i.e. 20 square feet or less, to be used by a third party vendor in connection with the installation of a vending machine or payphone shall not constitute a subletting

assignee or sublessee of the obligations of Lessee under this Lease, (ii) release Lessee of any obligations hereunder, or (iii) alter the primary liability of Lessee for the payment of Rent or for the performance of any other obligations
to be performed by Lessee.
(b) Lessor may accept Rent or performance of Lessees obligations from any person other than
Lessee pending approval or disapproval of an assignment. Neither a delay in the approval or disapproval of such assignment nor the acceptance of Rent or performance shall constitute a waiver or Estoppel of Lessors right to exercise its
remedies for Lessees Default or Breach.
(c) Lessors consent to any assignment or subletting shall not constitute
a consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting.
(d) In the event of any Default or Breach by Lessee, Lessor may proceed
directly against Lessee, any Guarantors or anyone else responsible for the performance of Lessees obligations under this Lease, including any assignee or sublessee, without first exhausting Lessors remedies against any other person or
entity responsible therefore to Lessor, or any security held by Lessor.
(e) Each request for consent to an assignment or
subletting shall be in writing, accompanied by information relevant to Lessors determination as to the financial and operational responsibility and appropriateness of the proposed assignee or sublessee, including but not limited to the
intended use and/or required modification of the Premises, if any. Lessee agrees to provide Lessor with such other additional information and/or documentation as may be reasonably requested. Lessee shall reimburse Lessor for any actual costs
affiliated with the request for consent, including but not limited to legal fees incurred by lessor.
(f) Any assignee of, or
sublessee under, this Lease shall, by reason of accepting such assignment, entering into such sublease, or entering into possession of the Premises or any portion thereof, be deemed to have assumed and agreed to conform and comply with each and
every term, covenant, condition and obligation herein to be observed or performed by Lessee during the term of said assignment or sublease, other than such obligations as are contrary to or inconsistent with provisions of an assignment or sublease

sublease at least ten (10) days prior to the transfer in question, (ii) such assignment or sublease is not a subterfuge by Lessee to avoid its obligation under this Lease, (iii) if the transfer is an assignment, the assignee assumes,
in full, the obligations of Lessee under this Lease, and if the transfer is a sublease, the transferee executes such documentation reasonably required by Lessor in connection with the subordination of such sublease to this Lease, and
(iv) Lessee remains fully liable under this Lease. The term Affiliate of Lessee shall mean an entity which is (1) controlled by, controls, or is under common control with Lessee; (2) subject to Paragraph 1.2©, any entity with which Lessee has merged or consolidated, or (3) subject to Paragraph 12.(c), any entity which

Lessor exceeds Lessees then outstanding obligations any such excess shall be refunded to Lessee. Lessor shall not, by reason of the foregoing or any assignment of such sublease, nor by reason of the sublessee. Lessee hereby irrevocably
authorizes and directs any such sublessee, upon receipt of a written notice from Lessor stating that a Breach exists in the performance of Lessees obligations under this Lease, to pay to Lessor all Rent due and to become due under the
sublease. Sublessee shall rely upon any such notice from Lessor and shall pay all Rents to lessor without any obligation or right to inquire as to whether such Breach exists, notwithstanding any claim from Lessee to the contrary.
(b) In the event of a Breach by Lessee, Lessor may, at its option, require sublessee to attorn to lessor, in which event Lessor shall
undertake the obligations of the sublessor under such sublease from the time of the exercise of said option to the expiration of such sublease; provided, however, Lessor shall not be liable for any prepaid rents or security deposit paid by such
sublessee to such sublessor or for any prior Defaults or Breaches of such sublessor,
(c) Any matter requiring the consent of
the sublessor under a sublease shall also require the consent of Lessor.
(d) No sublessee shall further assign or sublet all
or any part of the Premises without Lessors prior written consent.
(e) Lessor shall deliver a copy of any notice of
Default or Breach by Lessee to the sublessee, who shall have the right to cure the Default of Lessee within the grace period, if any, specified in such notice. The sublessee shall have a right of reimbursement and offset from and against Lessee for
any such Defaults cured by the sublessee.
13. Default; Breach: Remedies.
13.1 Default; Breach. A Default is defined as a failure by the Lessee to comply with or perform any of the terms,
covenants, conditions or Rules and Regulations under this Lease. A Breach is defined as the occurrence of one or more of the following Defaults, and the failure of Lessee to cure such Default within any applicable grace period:
(a) The abandonment of the Premises; or the vacating of the Premises without providing a commercially reasonable level of
security, or where the coverage of the property insurance described in Paragraph 8.3 is jeopardized as a result thereof, or without providing reasonable assurances to minimize potential vandalism.
(a) The failure of Lessee to make any payment of Rent or any
Security Deposit required to be made by Lessee hereunder, whether to Lessor or to a third party, when due, to provide reasonable evidence of insurance or surety bond, or to fulfill any obligation under this Lease which endangers or threatens life or
property, where such failure continues for a period of 3 business days following written notice to Lessee. THE ACCEPTANCE BY LESSOR OF A PARTIAL PAYMENT OF RENT OR SECURITY DEPOSIT SHALL NOT CONSISTUTE A WAIVER OF ANY OF LESSORS RIGHTS,
INCLUDING LESSORS RIGHT TO RECOVER POSSESSION OF THE PREMISES.
(b) The failure of Lessee to allow Lessor and/or its
agents access to the Premises or the commission of waste, act or acts constituting public or private nuisance, and/or an illegal activity on the Premises by Lessee, where such actions continue for a period of 3 business days following written notice
(c) The failure by Lessee to provide (i) reasonable written evidence of compliance with Applicable
Requirements if in Lessors reasonable belief there exists evidence of Lessees non-compliance, (ii) the service contracts, (iii) the rescission of an unauthorized assignment or subletting, (iv) an Estoppel Certificate or a
Tenancy Statement (v) a requested subordination, (vi) evidence concerning any guaranty and/or Guarantor, (vii) any document requested under Paragraph 42, (viii) material safety data sheets (MSDS), or (ix) any other
documentation or information which Lessor may reasonably require of Lessee under the terms of this Lease, where any such failure continues for a period of 10 days following written notice to Lessee.
(d) A Default by Lessee as to the terms, covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease, or of the rules adopted under Paragraph 40
hereof, other than those described in subparagraphs 13.1(a),(b),(c) or (d), above, where such Default continues for a period of 30 days after written notice; provided, however, that if the nature of Lessees Default is such that more than 30
days are reasonably required for its cure, then it shall not be deemed to be a Breach if Lessee commences such cure within said 30 day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion.
(e) The occurrence of any of the following events: (i) the making of any general arrangement or assignment for the benefit of
creditors, (ii) becoming a debtor as defined in 11 U.S.C. §101 or any successor statute thereto (unless, in the case of a petition filed against Lessee, the same is dismissed within 60 days); (iii) the appointment of a
trustee or receiver to take possession of substantially all of Lessees assets located at the Premises or of Lessees interest in this Lease, where possession is not restored to Lessee within 30 days; or (iv) the attachment, execution
or other judicial seizure of substantially all of Lessees assets located at the Premises or of Lessees interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within 30 days; provided, however, in the event that any provision of
this subparagraph is contrary to any applicable law, such provision shall be of no force or effect, and not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.
(f) The discovery that any financial statement of Lessee or of any Guarantor given to Lessor was materially false,
(g) If the performance of Lessees obligations under this Lease is guaranteed: (i) the death of a Guarantor, (ii) the termination of a Guarantors liability with respect to this Lease
other than in accordance with the terms of such guaranty, (iii) a Guarantors becoming insolvent or the subject of a bankruptcy filing, (iv) a Guarantors refusal to honor the guaranty, or (v) a Guarantors breach of
its guaranty obligation on an
Page 9 of 18
anticipatory basis, and Lessees failure, within 60 days following written notice of any such event, to provide written alternative assurance or security, which when coupled with the then
existing resources of Lessee, equals or exceeds the combined financial resources of Lessee and the Guarantors that existed at the time of execution of this Lease.
13.2 Remedies. If Lessee fails to perform any of its affirmative duties or obligations, within 10 days after written notice (or in case of an emergency, without notice), Lessor may, at its option,
perform such duty or obligation on Lessees behalf, including but not limited to the obtaining of reasonably required bonds, insurance policies, or governmental licenses, permits or approvals. Lessee shall pay to Lessor an amount equal to 115%
of the costs and expenses incurred by Lessor in such performance upon receipt of an invoice therefore. In the event of a Breach, Lessor may, with or without further notice or demand, and without limiting Lessor in the exercise of any right or remedy
which Lessor may have by reason of such Breach;
(a) Terminate Lessees right to possession of the Premises by any lawful
means, in which case this Lease shall terminate and Lessee shall immediately surrender possession to Lessor. In such event Lessor shall be entitled to recover from Lessee: (i) the unpaid Rent which had been earned at the time of termination;
(ii) 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 rental loss that the Lessee proves could have been reasonably avoided;
(iii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that the Lessee provides could be reasonably avoided; and (iv) any other
amount necessary to compensate Lessor for all the detriment proximately caused by the Lessees failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom, including but not
limited to the cost of recovering possession of the Premises, expenses or reletting, including necessary renovation and alteration of the Premises, unreasonable attorneys fees, and that portion of any leasing commission paid by Lessor in
connection with this Lease applicable to the unexpired term of this Lease. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in provision (iii) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be computed by discounting such amount at the
discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of the District within which the Premises are located at the time of award plus one percent. Efforts by Lessor to mitigate damages caused by Lessees Breach of this Lease shall not waive Lessors
right to recover damages under Paragraph 12. If termination of this Lease is obtained through the provisional remedy of unlawful detainer, Lessor shall have the right to recover in such proceeding any unpaid Rent and damages as are recoverable
therein, or Lessor may reserve the right to recover all or any part thereof in a separate suit. If a notice and grace period required under Paragraph 13.1 was not previously given, a notice to pay rent or quit, or to perform or quit given to Lessee
under the unlawful detainer statute shall also constitute the notice required by Paragraph 13.1. In such case, the applicable grace period required by Paragraph 13.1 and the unlawful detainer statute shall run concurrently, and the failure of Lessee
to cure the Default within the greater of the two such grace periods shall constitute both an unlawful detainer and a Breach of this Lease entitling Lessor to the remedies provided for in this Lease and/or by said statute,
(b) Continue the Lease and Lessees right to possession and recover the Rent as it becomes due, in which event Lessee may sublet or
assign, subject only to reasonable limitations. Acts of maintenance, efforts to relief, and/or the appointment of a receiver to protect the Lessors interests, shall not constitute a termination of the Lessors right to possession,
(c) Pursue any other remedy now or hereafter available under the laws or judicial decisions of the state where in the
Premises are located. The expiration or termination of this Lease and/or the termination of Lessees right to possession shall not relieve Lessee from liability under any indemnity provisions of this Lease as to matters occurring or accruing
during the term hereof or by reason of Lessees occupancy of the Premises.
13.4 Late Charges. Lessee hereby acknowledges that late payment by lessee of Rent will cause Lessor to incur costs not contemplated
by this Lease, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain. Such costs include, but are not limited to, processing and accounting charges, and late charges which may be imposed upon Lessor by any Lender. Accordingly, if any
Rent shall not be received by Lessor within 5 days after written notice that such amount is due, then, without any requirement for additional notice to Lessee. Lessee shall immediately pay to Lessor a one-time late charge equal to five percent
(5%) of each such overdue amount. The Parties hereby agree that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs Lessor will incur by reason of such late payment. Acceptance of such late charge by Lessor shall in no event
constitute a waiver of Lessees Default or Breach with respect to such overdue amount, nor prevent the exercise of any of the other rights and remedies granted hereunder. In the event that a late charge is payable hereunder, whether or not
collected, for 3 consecutive installments of Base Rent, then notwithstanding any provision of this Lease to the contrary, Base Rent shall, at Lessors option, become due and payable quarterly in advance.
13.5 Interest. Any monetary payment due Lessor hereunder, other than late charges, not received by Lessor, when due as to scheduled
payments (such as Base Rent) or within 30 days following the date on which it was due for non-scheduled payment, shall bear interest from the date when due, as to scheduled payments, or the 31st day after it was due as to non-scheduled payments. The
interest (Interest) charged shall be equal to the prime rate reported by the Wall Street Journal as published closest prior to the date when due plus four percent (4%) but shall not exceed the maximum rate allowed by law. Interest
is payable in addition to the potential late charged provided for in Paragraph 13.4.
13.6 Breach by Lessor.
(a) Notice of Breach. Lessor shall not be deemed in breach of this Lease unless Lessor fails within a reasonable time
to perform an obligation required to be performed by Lessor. For purposes of this Paragraph, a reasonable time shall in no event be less than 30 days after receipt by Lessor, and any Lender whose name and address shall have been furnished Lessee in
writing for such purpose, of written notice specifying wherein such obligation of Lessor has not been performed, except in the case of an emergency when a reasonable time may be less than thirty (30) days; provided, however, that if the nature
of Lessors obligation is such that more than 30 days are reasonably required for its performance, then Lessor shall not be in breach if performance is commenced within such 30 day period and thereafter diligently pursed to completion.
(b) Performance by Lessee on Behalf of Lessor. In the event that neither Lessor nor Lender cures said breach within 30
days after receipt of said notice, or if having commenced said cure they do not diligently pursue it to completion, then Lessee may elect to cure said breach at Lessees expense and offset from Rent the actual and reasonable cost to perform
such cure, provided, however, that such offset shall not exceed an amount equal to the greater of one months Base Rent or the Security Deposit, reserving Lessees right to seek reimbursement from Lessor for any such expense in excess of
such offset. Lessee shall document the cost of said cure and supply said documentation to Lessor.
14. Condemnation. If
the Premises or any portion thereof are taken under the power of eminent domain or sold under the threat of the exercise of said power (collectively Condemnation), this Lease shall terminate as to the part taken as of the date the
condemning authority takes title or possession, whichever first occurs. If more than 10% of the building, or more than 25% of that portion of the Premises not occupied by any building, is taken by Condemnation, Lessee may, at Lessees option,
to be exercised in writing within 10 days after Lessor shall have given Lessee written notice of such taking (or in the absence of such notice, within 10 days after the condemning authority shall have taken possession) terminate this Lease as of the
date the condemning authority takes such possession. If Lessee does not terminate this Lease in accordance with the foregoing, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect as to the portion of the Premises remaining, except that the Base Rent
shall be reduced in proportion to the reduction in utility of the Premises caused by such Condemnation. Condemnation awards and/or payments shall be the property of Lessor, whether such award shall be made as compensation for diminution in value of
the leasehold, the value of the part taken, or for severance damages; provided, however, that Lessee shall be entitled to any compensation paid by the condemnor for Lessees relocation expenses, loss of business goodwill and/or Trade Fixtures,
without regard to whether or not this Lease is terminated pursuant to the provisions of this Paragraph. All Alterations and Utility Installations made to the Premises by Lessee, for purposes of Condemnation only, shall be considered the property of
the Lessee and Lessee shall be entitled to any and all compensation which is payable therefore. In the event that this Lease is not terminated by reason of the Condemnation, Lessor shall repair any damage to the Premises caused by such Condemnation.
Page 10 of 18
15.3 Representations and indemnities of Broker Relationships. Lessee and Lessor each
represent and warrant to the other that it has had no dealings with any person, firm, broker or finder (other than the Brokers, if any) in connection with this Lease, and that no one other than said named Brokers is entitled to any commission or
finders fee in connection herewith. Lessee and Lessor do each hereby agree to indemnity, protect, defend and hold the other harmless from and against liability for compensation or charges which may be claimed by any such unnamed broker, finder
or other similar party by reason of any dealings or actions of the indemnifying Party, including any costs, expenses, attorneys fees reasonably incurred with respect thereto.
16. Estoppel Certificates.
(a) Each Party (as Responding
Party) shall within 10 days after written notice from the other Party (the Requesting Party) execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Requesting Party a statement in writing in form similar to the then most current
Estoppel Certificate form published by the AIR commercial Real Estate Association, plus such additional information, confirmation and/or statements as may be reasonably requested by the Requesting Party,
(b) If the Responding Party shall fail to execute or deliver the Estoppel Certificate within such 10 day period, the Requesting Party may
execute an Estoppel Certificate stating that (i) the Lease is in full force and effect without modification except as may be represented by the Requesting Party, (ii) there are no uncured defaults in the Requesting Partys
performance, and (iii) if Lessor is the Requesting Party, not more than one months rent has been paid in advance. Prospective purchasers and encumbrances may rely upon the Requesting Partys Estoppel Certificate, and the Responding
Party shall be estopped from denying the truth of the facts contained in said Certificate.
(c) If Lessor desires to finance,
refinance, or sell the Premises, or any part thereof, Lessee and all Guarantors shall within 10 days after written notice from Lessor deliver to any potential lender or purchaser designated by Lessor such financial statements as may be reasonably
required by such lender or purchaser, including but not limited to Lessees financial statements for the past 3 years. All such financial statements shall be received by Lessor and such lender or purchaser in confidence and shall be used only
for the purposes herein set forth.
17. Definition of Lessor. The term Lessor as used herein shall
mean the owner or owners at the time in question of the fee title to the Premises, or, if this is a sublease, of the Lessees interest in the prior lease. In the event of a transfer of lessors title or interest in the Premises or this
Lease, Lessor shall deliver to the transferee or assignee (in cash or by credit) any unused Security Deposit held by Lessor. Upon such transfer or assignment and delivery of the Security Deposit, as aforesaid, the prior Lessor shall be relieved of
all liability with respect to the obligations and/or covenants under this Lease thereafter to be performed by the Lessor. Subject to the foregoing, the obligations and/or covenants in this Lease to be performed by the Lessor shall be binding only
upon the Lessor as hereinabove defined.
18. Severability. The invalidity of any provision of this Lease, as determined
by a court of competent jurisdiction, shall in no way affect the validity of any other provision hereof.
Unless otherwise specifically indicated to the contrary, the word days as used in this Lease shall mean and refer to calendar days.
20. Limitation on Liability. The obligations of Lessor under this Lease shall not constitute personal obligations of Lessor or its partners, members, directors, officers or shareholders, and Lessee
shall look to the Premises, and to no other assets of Lessor, for the satisfaction of any liability of Lessor with respect to this Lease, and shall not seek recourse against Lessors partners, members, directors, officers or shareholders, or
any of their personal assets for such satisfaction.
21. Time of Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to the
performance of all obligations to be performed or observed by the Parties under this Lease.
22. No Prior or Other
Agreements; Broker disclaimer. This Lease contains all agreements between the Parties with respect to any matter mentioned herein, and no other prior or contemporaneous agreement or understanding shall be effective. Lessor and Lessee each
represents and warrants to the Brokers that it has made, and is relying solely upon, its own investigation as to the nature, quality, character and financial responsibility of the other Party to this Lease and as to the use, nature, quality and
character of the Premises. Brokers have no responsibility with respect thereto or with respect to any default or breach hereof by either Party.
Notice Requirements. All notices required or permitted by this Lease or applicable law shall be in writing and may be delivered in person (by hand or by courier) or may be sent by regular, certified or registered mail or U.S. Postal Service
Express Mail, with postage prepaid, or by facsimile transmission, and shall be deemed sufficiently given if served in a manner specified in this Paragraph 23. The addresses noted adjacent to a Partys signature on this Lease shall be that
Partys address for delivery or mailing of notices. Either Party may by written notice to the other specify a different address for notice, except that upon Lessees taking possession of the Premises, the Premises shall constitute
Lessees address for notice. A copy of all notices to Lessor shall be concurrently transmitted to such party of parties at such addresses as Lessor may from time to time hereafter designate in writing.
23.2 Date of Notice. Any notice sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, shall be deemed given on the date of
delivery shown on the receipt card, or if no delivery date is shown, the postmark thereon. If sent by regular mail the notice shall be deemed given 72 hours after the same is addressed as required herein and mailed with postage prepaid. Notices
delivered by United States Express Mail or overnight courier that guarantees next day delivery shall be deemed given 24 hours after delivery of the same to the Postal Service or courier. Notices transmitted by facsimile transmission or similar means
shall be deemed delivered upon telephone confirmation of receipt (confirmation report from fax machine is sufficient), provided a copy is also delivered via delivery or mail. If notice is received on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, it shall be
made on the security thereof, and to all renewals, modifications, and extensions thereof. Lessee agrees that the holders of any such Security Devices (in this Lease together referred to as Lender) shall have no liability or
obligation to perform any of the obligations of Lessor under this Lease. Any Lender may elect to have this Lease and/or any Option granted hereby superior to the lien of its Security Device by giving written notice thereof to Lessee, whereupon this
Lease and such Options shall be deemed prior to such Security Device, notwithstanding the relative dates of the documentation or recordation thereof.
30.2 Attornment. In the event that Lessor transfers title to the Premises, or the Premises are acquired by another upon the foreclosure or termination of a Security Device to which this Lease is
subordinated (i) Lessee shall, subject to the non-disturbance provisions of Paragraph 30.3, attorn to such new owner, and upon request, enter into a new lease, containing all of the terms and provisions of this Lease, with such new owner for
the remainder of the term hereof, or, at the election of the new owner, this Lease will automatically become a new lease between Lessee and such new owner, and (ii) Lessor shall thereafter be relieved of any further obligations hereunder and
such new owner shall assume all of Lessors obligations, except that such new owner shall not: (a) be liable for any act or omission of any prior Lessor or with respect to events occurring prior to acquisition of ownership; (b) be
subject to any offsets or defenses which Lessee might have against any prior Lessor, (c) be bound by prepayment of more than one months rent, or (d) be liable for the return of any security deposit paid to any prior Lessor which was
not paid or credited to such new owner.
30.3 Non-Disturbance. With respect to Security Devices entered into by Lessor
after the execution of this Lease, Lessees subordination of this Lease shall be subject to receiving a commercially reasonable non-disturbance agreement (a Non-Disturbance Agreement) from the Lender which Non-Disturbance Agreement
provides that Lessees possession of the Premises, and this Lease, including any options to extend the term hereof, will not be disturbed so long as Lessee is not in Breach hereof and attorns to the record owner of the Premises. Further, within
60 days after the execution of this Lease, Lessor shall, if requested by Lessee, use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a Non-Disturbance Agreement from the holder of any pre-existing Security Device which is secured by the Premises. In
the event that Lessor is unable to provide the Non-Disturbance Agreement within said 60 days, then Lessee may, at Lessees option, directly contact Lender and attempt to negotiate for the execution and delivery of a Non-Disturbance Agreement.
Lessor represents and warrants to Lessee that there is no Security Device encumbering the Premises as of the date of this Lease.
30.4 Self-Executing. The agreements contained in this Paragraph 30 shall be effective without the execution of any further documents; provided, however, that, upon written request from Lessor or a Lender in connection with a sale,
financing or refinancing of the Premises, Lessee and Lessor shall execute such further writings as may be reasonably required to separately document any subordination, attornment and/or Non-Disturbance Agreement provided for herein.

31. Attorneys Fees. If any Party or Broker brings an action or proceeding
involving the Premises whether founded in tort, contract or equity, or to be declare rights hereunder, the Prevailing Party (as hereafter defined) in any such proceeding, action, or appeal thereon, shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys
fees. Such fees may be awarded in the same suit or recovered in a separate suit, whether or not such action or proceeding is pursued to decision or judgment. The term, Prevailing Party shall include, without limitation, a Party or Broker
who substantially obtains or defeats the relief sought, as the case may be, whether by compromise, settlement, judgment, or the abandonment by the other Party of Broker of its claim or defense. The attorneys fees award shall not be computed in
accordance with any court fee schedule, but shall be such as to fully reimburse all attorneys fees reasonably incurred. In addition, Lessor shall be entitled to attorneys fees, costs and expenses incurred in the preparation and service
of notices of Default and consultations in connection therewith, whether or not a legal action is subsequently commenced in connection with such Default or resulting Breach ($200 is a reasonable minimum per occurrence for such services and
32. Lessors Access; Showing Premises; Repairs. Lessor and Lessors agents shall have the
right to enter the Premises at any time, in the case of an emergency, and otherwise reasonable times after reasonable prior notice for the purpose of showing the same to prospective purchasers, lenders, or tenants, and making such alterations,
repairs, improvements or additions to the Premises as Lessor may deem necessary or desirable and the erecting, using and maintaining of utilities, services, pipes and conduits through the Premises and/or other premises as long as there is no
material adverse effect to Lessees use of the Premises. All such activities shall be without abatement of rent or liability to Lessee.
33. Auctions. Lessee shall not conduct, nor permit to be conducted, any auction upon the Premises without Lessors prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or
delayed. Lessor shall not be obligated to exercise any standard of reasonableness in determining whether to permit an action.
34. Signs. Lessor may place on the Premises ordinary For Sale signs at any time and ordinary For Lease signs during the last 6 months of the term hereof. Except for ordinary for sublease signs,
Lessee shall not place any sign upon the Premises without Lessors prior written consent. All signs must comply with all Applicable Requirements.
35. Termination; Merger. Unless specifically stated otherwise in writing by Lessor, the voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Lessee, the mutual termination or cancellation hereof, or a
termination hereof by Lessor for Breach by Lessee, shall automatically terminate any sublease or lesser estate in the Premises; provided, however, that Lessor may elect to continue any one or all existing subtenancies. Lessors failure within
10 days following any such event to elect to the contrary by written notice to the holder of any such lesser interest, shall constitute Lessors election to have such event constitute the termination of such interest.
36. Consents. Except as otherwise provided herein, wherever in this Lease the consent of a Party is required to an act by or for the
other Party, such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Lessors actual reasonable costs and expenses (including but no limited to architects, attorneys, engineers and other consultants fees) incurred in
the consideration of, or response to, a request by Lessee for any Lessor consent, including but not limited to consents to an assignment, a subletting or the presence or use of a Hazardous Substance, shall be paid by Lessee upon receipt of an
invoice and supporting documentation therefore. Lessors consent to any act, assignment or subletting shall not constitute an acknowledgment that no Default or Breach by Lessee of this Lease exists, nor shall such consent be deemed a waiver of
any then existing Default or Breach, except as may be otherwise specifically stated in writing by Lessor at the time of such consent. The failure to specify herein any particular condition to Lessors consent shall not preclude the imposition
by Lessor at the time of consent of such further or other conditions as are then reasonable with reference to the particular matter for which consent is being given. In the event that either Party disagrees with any determination made by the other
hereunder and reasonably requests the reasons for such determination, the determining party shall furnish its reasons in writing and in reasonable detail within 10 business days following such request.
Execution. The Guarantors, if any, shall each execute a guaranty in the form most recently published by the AIR Commercial Real Estate Association, and each such Guarantor shall have the same obligations as Lessee under this Lease.
37.2 Default. It shall constitute a Default of the Lessee if any Guarantor fails or refuses, upon request to provide:
(a) evidence of the execution of the guaranty, including the authority of the party signing on Guarantors behalf to obligate Guarantor, and in the case of a corporate Guarantor, a certified copy of a resolution of its board of directors
authorizing the making of such guaranty, (b) current financial statements. (c) an Estoppel Certificate, or (d) written confirmation that the guaranty is still in effect.
38. Quiet Possession. Subject to payment by Lessee of the Rent and performance of all of the covenants, conditions and provisions on
Lessees part to be observed and performed under this Lease, Lessee shall have quiet possession and quiet enjoyment of the Premises during the term hereof.
||Options. If Lessee is granted en Option, as defined below, then the following provisions shall apply; |
39.1 Definition. Option shall mean:

subletting. For purposes of this paragraph 39, original Lessee shall be deemed to include an Affiliate of Lessee to whom an assignment of this Lease or sublease of the Premises was made pursuant to Paragraph 12.2(g)
39.3 Multiple Options. In the event that Lessee has any multiple Options to extend or renew this Lease. a later Option cannot be
exercised unless the prior Options have been validly exercised.

continuing until said Default is cured, (ii) during the period of time any Rent is unpaid (without regard to whether notice thereof is given Lessee), (111) during the time Lessee is In Breach of this Lease, or (iv) in the event that
Lessee has been given 3 or more notices of separate Default, whether or not the Defaults are cured, during the 12 month period immediately preceding the exercise of the Option.
(b) The period of time within which an Option may be exercised shall not be extended or enlarged by reason of Lessees inability to

such Rent becomes due (without any necessity of Lessor to give notice thereof).
40. Multiple Buildings. If the
Premises are a part of a group of buildings controlled by Lessor, Lessee agrees that It will abide by and conform to all reasonable rules and regulations which Lessor may make from time to time for the management, safety, and care of said
properties, including the care and cleanliness of the grounds and including the parking, loading and unloading of vehicles, and to cause its employees, suppliers, shippers, customers, contractors and invitees to so abide and conform. Lessee also
agrees to pay its fair share of common expenses incurred in connection with such rules and regulations.
Measures. Lessee hereby acknowledges that the Rent payable to Lessor hereunder does not include the cost of guard service or other security measures, and that Lessor shall have no obligation whatsoever to provide same. Lessee assumes all
responsibility for the protection of the Premises, Lessee, its agents and invitees and their property from the acts of third parties.
Page 12 of 18
42. Reservations. Lessor reserves to itself the right, from time to time, to grant,
without the consent or Joinder of Lessee, such easements, rights and dedications that Lessor deems necessary, and to cause the recordation of parcel maps and restrictions, so long as such easements, rights, dedications, maps and restrictions do not
unreasonably interfere with the use of the Premises by Lessee. Lessee agrees to sign any documents reasonably requested by Lessor to effectuate any such easement rights, dedication, map or restrictions.
43. Performance Under Protest. If at any time a dispute shall arise as to any amount or sum of money to be paid by one Party to the
other under the provisions hereof, the Party against whom the obligation to pay the money is asserted shall have the right to make payment ·under protest and such payment shall not be regarded as a voluntary payment and there shall
