2.1 Premises. Subject to the terms, covenants
and conditions set forth in this Lease, Landlord hereby leases the Premises to Tenant and Tenant hereby leases the Premises from Landlord. The approximate total Rentable Area of the Premises is specified in Article 1. Landlord and Tenant hereby
agree that such approximation is reasonable, is not subject to adjustment by either party, and no terms based thereon shall be subject to revision whether or the not the actual Rentable Area is more or less than as set forth in this Lease. The
building in which the Premises will be located is sometimes referred to herein as the Building. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, Landlord hereby reserves the exclusive right to
the exterior side walls, rear walls and roof of the Building, but expressly grants to Tenant exclusive use of the mezzanine space below the roof. Together, the Premises, the Building, the legal parcel upon which the Building now stands,
and the Common Area (as defined below) are sometimes referred to in this Lease as the Property.
2.2 Common Area.
Landlord hereby grants to Tenant and its officers, employees, agents, contractors, invitees, permitted subtenants and any additional permitted occupants of the Premises (collectively,
Tenants Agents) an exclusive license to reasonably use the landscape areas, sidewalks, driveways, Parking Areas (as defined in Section 2.3) and other public amenities (the Common
Area) associated with the Premises during the Term. Tenants rights to the Common Area shall be subject to the Rules and Regulations described in Section 23.1, to Landlords reserved rights described in Article 16 and to
other applicable provisions of this Lease.
Provided that an Event of Default by Tenant is not in existence, Tenant and Tenants Agents shall have the exclusive right to use any parking areas now on the Property and designated by Landlord for
tenant use (the Parking Area) for parking operable motor vehicles and for ingress to and egress from the Property in connection with Tenants use of the Premises, subject to the following terms and conditions:
(a) Tenant and Tenants Agents shall have the right
to use the entire Parking Area, as specified in Article 1.
- 3 -
(b) Tenants license
shall not be assigned, sublet or otherwise transferred separately from the Premises.
(c) Tenant shall not at any time park, or permit the parking of the
trucks or vehicles of Tenant or Tenants Agents in any portion of the Parking Areas or Common Area not designated by Landlord for such use by Tenant. Tenant shall not park nor permit to be parked any inoperative vehicles or store any materials
or equipment on any portion of the Parking Area or other areas of the Common Area.
(d) Tenant agrees to assume responsibility for compliance by
Tenants Agents with the parking provisions contained in this Section. Tenant hereby authorizes Landlord at Tenants expense to attach violation stickers or notices to such vehicles not parked in compliance with this Section and to tow
away any such vehicles, in addition, one or more specific section of the Parking Area may be set aside by Landlord from time to time for visitor parking for the Property, for loading purposes, for car or van pool parking, or for other specific uses
as designated by Landlord.
(a) Prior to entering into this Lease,
Tenant has occupied approximately 8,442 square feet the Premises pursuant to the Prior Lease, which space is identified on the attached Exhibit B (the Pre-Occupied Space), and
Tenant has made a thorough and independent examination of the remainder of the Premises (the New Space) and all matters related to Tenants decision to enter into this Lease. Tenant is thoroughly familiar with all
aspects of the Property and its construction and is satisfied that it is in an acceptable condition and meets Tenants needs. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord has not been in possession of the Premises nor operated the Premises
prior to the Commencement Date. Tenant does not rely on, and Landlord does not make, any express or implied representations or warranties as to any matters including, without limitation, (a) the physical condition of the Property, the Building
Structure, or the Building Systems (including, without limitation, the indoor air quality), (b) the existence, quality, adequacy or availability of utilities serving the Property, (c) the size of the Premises, the Building or the Property,
(d) the use, habitability, merchantability, fitness or suitability of the Premises for Tenants intended use, (e) the likelihood of deriving business from Tenants location or the economic feasibility of Tenants business,
(f) Hazardous Materials in the Premises, or on, in under or around the Property, (g) zoning, entitlements or any Applicable Laws which may apply to Tenants use of the Premises or business operations, or the Propertys compliance
with Applicable Laws, or (h) any other matter. Tenant has satisfied itself as to such suitability and other pertinent matters by Tenants own inquiries and tests into all matters relevant in determining whether to enter into this Lease,
Tenant accepts the Premises in their existing as-is condition. Tenant shall, by entering into and occupying the Premises pursuant to this Lease, be deemed to have accepted the Premises and to have acknowledged that the same are in good
order, condition and repair.
4.1 Term. The Premises are leased for a term (the
Term) commencing on the Commencement Date and ending on the Expiration Date. The Term shall end on the
- 4 -
Expiration Date, or such earlier date on which this Lease terminates pursuant to its terms. The date upon which this Lease actually terminates, whether by expiration of the Term or earlier
termination pursuant to the terms of this Lease, is sometimes referred to in this Lease as the Termination Date.
4.2 Failure to Deliver Possession. If for any reason
Landlord cannot deliver possession all or any portion of the Premises to Tenant on the Commencement Date, then (a) the validity of this Lease and the obligations of Tenant under this Lease shall not be affected by any such delay in delivery,
nor shall any such delay result in any extension of the Expiration Date, and (b) Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord arising out of Landlords failure to deliver possession of the Premises on the Commencement Date. If Landlord is
unable to deliver the New Space to Tenant on the Commencement Date, the Commencement Date for the Pre-Occupied Space shall be deemed to occur on the Commencement Date set forth in Article 1, and the Commencement Date for the New Space shall be
deemed to occur on the date the New Space is delivered to Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the Expiration Date be changed or extended as a result of any delay in the delivery of possession of the Premises or any portion
4.3 No Renewal Option. Landlord shall
have no obligation to extend or renew this Lease upon expiration or termination of this Lease, or to enter into a new lease of the Premises with Tenant upon the expiration or termination of this Lease. Tenant has no option to extend the Term of this
Lease and Landlord reserves the right to lease the Premises to any other person or entity after the end of the Term.
5.1 Base Rent. Subject to the terms of Section 5.5 below,
commencing upon the Commencement Date, and thereafter during the Term, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the monthly Base Rent specified in Article 1 on or before the first day of each month, in advance, without any prior notice or demand and without any
deductions or setoff whatsoever (except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease). Base Rent shall be paid by wire transfer pursuant to the instructions set forth in Article 1 or, if requested by Landlord, at the address specified for Landlord
in Article 1 or at such other place as Landlord designates in writing. If the Commencement Date occurs on a day other than the first day of a calendar month, or the Termination Date occurs on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, then
the Base Rent for such fractional month wilt be prorated on the basis of the actual number of days in such month. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, Tenant shall commence paying Rent for the PreOccupied Space on the Commencement Date and the Base
Rent for the New Space shall be abated for the first four (4) months of the Term commencing on the Commencement Date of the New Space, as determined in accordance with Section 4.2 above. Tenant shall pay Operating Expenses for the New
Space during such four (4) month period, commencing on the Commencement Date of the New Space, in accordance with the terms of Article 7 below,
5.2 Additional Rent. All sums due from Tenant to Landlord
or to any third party under the terms of this Lease (other than Base Rent) shall be additional rent (Additional Rent), including without (imitation the charges for Operating Expenses
(described in Article 7) and all sums incurred by Landlord due to Tenants failure to perform its obligations under this
- 5 -
Lease. All Additional Rent that is payable to Landlord shall be paid at the time and place that Base Rent is paid, unless otherwise specifically provided in this Lease. Landlord will have the
same remedies for a default in the payment of any Additional Rent as for a default in the payment of Base Rent. Together, Base Rent and Additional Rent are sometimes collectively referred to in this Lease as Rent.
5.3 Late Payment. Any unpaid Rent shall bear
interest from the date due until paid at the interest Rate. In addition, Tenant recognizes that late payment of any Rent will result in administrative expense to Landlord, the extent of which expense is difficult and economically impracticable to
determine. Therefore, Tenant agrees that if Tenant fails to pay any Rent within five (5) days after its due date, an additional late charge of five percent (5%) of the sums so overdue shall become immediately due and payable. Tenant agrees
that the late payment charge is a reasonable estimate of the additional administrative costs and detriment that will be incurred by Landlord as a result of such failure by Tenant. In the event of nonpayment of interest or late charges on overdue
Rent, Landlord shall have, in addition to all other rights and remedies, the rights and remedies provided in this Lease and by law for nonpayment of Rent.
5.4 Security Deposit. On or before the Commencement Date,
Tenant shall deliver to Landlord the Security Deposit described in Article 1 in the form of cash. The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as security for the faithful performance of this Lease by Tenant of all of the terms, covenants and
conditions of this Lease. If there is an Event of Default by Tenant with respect to any provisions of this Lease (including but not limited to the payment of Rent); if Tenant files a petition in bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, dissolution or
liquidation under any law; makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors; consents to or acquiesces in the appointment of a receiver of itself or the Premises, or if a court of competent jurisdiction enters an order or judgment appointing a
receiver of Tenant or the Premises; or if a court of competent jurisdiction enters an order or judgment approving a petition filed against Tenant under any bankruptcy, insolvency or liquidation law, then in any such case Landlord may, without
waiving any of Landlords other rights or remedies under this Lease, apply the Security Deposit in whole or in part to remedy any failure by Tenant to pay any sums due under this Lease, to repair or maintain the Premises, to perform any other
terms, covenants or conditions contained in this Lease, to compensate Landlord for any loss or damages which Landlord may suffer as a result thereof, including without limitation any lost rent to which Landlord is entitled in the event the Lease
terminates or is rejected as a result of any of the foregoing. Should Landlord so apply any portion of the Security Deposit, Tenant shall replenish the Security Deposit to the original amount within ten (10) days after written demand by
Landlord, Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from its general funds, and Tenant shall not be entitled to interest on the Security Deposit. If Tenant has fully complied with all of the terms, covenants and conditions
of this Lease, the Security Deposit (less any amount applied to cleaning, repairing damage to the Premises caused by Tenant or otherwise applied in accordance with the provisions of this Lease) shall be returned to Tenant after the Expiration Date
and after delivery of possession of the Premises to Landlord in the manner required by this Lease. In the event of any Assignment of this Lease by Tenant, such Assignment shall be deemed to include an assignment of Tenants rights to recover
the Security Deposit, and Landlords agreement to return the Security Deposit shall run only to Tenants assignee and not to the original Tenant. Tenant hereby expressly waives the provisions of
- 6 -
California Civil Code Section 1950.7 or under any similar law, statute or ordinance now or hereafter in effect.
6. USE OF PREMISES AND CONDUCT OF BUSINESS.
6.1 Permitted Use. Tenant may use and occupy
the Premises during the Term solely for the uses specified and permitted in Article 1 and for no other purpose without the prior written consent of Landlord, such consent to be granted or withheld in Landlords sole and unfettered discretion.
Tenants use of the Property shall in all respects comply with all Applicable Laws.
6.2 Prohibited Uses. Tenant shall not use the
Premises or allow the Premises to be used for any illegal or immoral purpose, or so as to create waste, or constitute a private or public nuisance. Tenant shall not place any loads upon the floors, wails, or ceiling that endanger the structure, or
overload existing electrical or other mechanical systems. Tenant shall not use any machinery or equipment which causes any substantial noise or vibration. No waste materials or refuse shall be dumped upon or permitted to remain upon any part of the
Premises or outside of the Premises except in trash containers placed inside exterior enclosures designated by Landlord for that purpose or inside of the Premises where approved by Landlord, No materials, supplies, equipment, finished products or
semi-finished products, raw materials or articles of any nature shall be stored upon or permitted to remain outside the Premises or on any portion of the Common Area unless otherwise approved by Landlord in its sole discretion. No loudspeaker or
other device, system or apparatus which can be heard outside the Premises shall be used in or at the Premises without the prior written consent of Landlord. No explosives or firearms shall be brought into the Premises. Landlord shall have the right
to enter and conduct an inspection of the Premises, at any reasonable time and upon reasonable advance notice (of not less than 24 hours, except in the case of an emergency in which event no prior notice shall be required, but Landlord shall give
Tenant prompt notice following such emergency entry), to determine whether Tenant is complying with the terms of this Section 6.2. In the event such inspection identifies any deficiencies in Tenants compliance with the terms of this
Section 6.2, Tenant shall promptly correct such deficiency and shall reimburse Landlord within thirty (30) days after written demand as Additional Rent for any costs incurred by Landlord in connection with such inspection.

Rent and all Additional Rent are to be paid by Tenant absolutely net of all costs and expenses relating to Landlords ownership, operation and maintenance of the Property, except as specifically provided in this Lease. The provisions of this
Article 7 for the payment of Operating Expenses are intended to pass on to Tenant all such costs and expenses that are incurred by Landlord in connection with the ownership, operation and maintenance of the Property.

7.3 Payment of Operating
Expenses. Commencing on the Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord as Additional Rent one twelfth (1/12) of the Operating Expenses for each calendar year or portion thereof during the Term, in advance, on or
before the first day of each month in an amount estimated by Landlord as stated in a written notice to Tenant; provided, further, that with respect to the Real Estate Taxes, in addition to the right to have Tenant billed directly by the County of
Santa Clara for the Real Estate Taxes pursuant to Section 7.2(a), Landlord shall have the right to bill Tenant for, and require Tenant to pay to the Landlord the entire amount of each installment of the Real Estate Taxes not more than thirty
(30) before the due date of such installment, or send any bill for Real Estate Taxes to Tenant and require that Tenant pay such Real Estate Taxes to the County of Santa Claras tax collector no later than the due date. Landlord may by
written notice to Tenant revise such estimates from time to time and Tenant shall thereafter make payments on the basis of such revised estimates. With reasonable promptness after the expiration of each calendar year, and in any event not later than
May 1st of each year, Landlord will furnish Tenant with a statement (Landlords Expense Statement) setting forth in reasonable detail the actual Operating Expenses for the prior calendar year. If the
actual Operating Expenses for such year exceed the estimated Operating Expenses paid by Tenant for such year, Tenant shall pay to Landlord (whether or not this Lease has terminated) the difference between the amount of estimated Operating Expenses
paid by Tenant and the actual Operating Expenses within thirty (30) days after the receipt of Landlords Expense Statement. If the total amount paid by Tenant for any year exceeds the actual Operating Expenses for that year, the excess
shall be credited against the next installments of Base Rent due from Tenant to Landlord, or, if after the Termination Date, the excess shall first be credited against any unpaid Base Rent or Additional Rent due and any remaining excess shall be
refunded to Tenant concurrently with the furnishing of Landlords Expense Statement.
7.4 Proration. If either the Commencement Date
or the Termination Date occurs on a date other than the first or last day, respectively, of a calendar year, Operating Expenses for the year in which the Commencement Date or Termination Date occurs shall be prorated based on a 365-day year.
7.5 Taxes on Tenants Property and Business.
Tenant shall pay prior to delinquency all taxes levied or assessed by any local, state or federal authority upon the conduct of Tenants business in the Premises or upon Tenants Property and shall deliver
satisfactory evidence of such payment to Landlord. If the assessed value of the Property is increased by the inclusion of a value placed upon Tenants Property, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, upon written demand, the taxes so levied against
Landlord, or the portion of Landlords taxes resulting from said increase in assessment, as determined from time to time by Landlord.
7.6 Transit Fees. Tenant shall pay as
Additional Rent under this Lease its proportionate share of the cost of any transit services or traffic mitigation programs that Landlord implements in the Stanford Research Park, including without limitation charges for service and surcharges
imposed directly or indirectly on the Property by any governmental agencies on or with respect to transit (including transit services which may be provided in the future to occupants of the Stanford Research Park) or automobile usage or parking
facilities (collectively, Transit Fees). The share of Transit Fees allocated to the Building shall be assessed pro rata and on a non-discriminatory basis, based on a reasonable standard
applied in a non-discriminatory manner by Landlord (for example, based on the rentable area of the Building as
- 11 -
compared to the total rentable area of the Stanford Research Park (or the area being served by the service, if less than the entire Stanford Research Park), or based on the average employee
headcount in the Building as compared to the overall employee density of the Stanford Research Park), In no event shall Tenants share Transit Fees exceed ten cents ($0.10) per square foot of Rentable Area in the Premises per calendar year,
increased annually on each anniversary of the Commencement Date by three percent (3%).
7.7 Tenants Audit Rights. Each
Landlords Expense Statement shall be conclusive and binding upon Tenant unless, within ninety (90) days after receipt thereof, Tenant shall give Landlord notice that Tenant disputes the correctness of the Landlords Expense
Statement, specifying the particular respects in which the Landlords Expense Statement is claimed to be incorrect. Tenant shall not have the right to withhold payment of Operating Expenses in the event of a dispute. Landlord shall maintain
books and records appropriate for the computation and verification of Operating Expenses and shall permit Tenants employees or a certified public accountant reasonably approved by Landlord examine Landlords books and records, during
Landlords regular business hours at Landlords place of business and with at least ten (10) days prior written notice, in order to verify the accuracy of the relevant Landlords Expense Statement. If it shall be finally
determined by an independent certified public accountant engaged by Tenant and reasonably approved by Landlord that Landlords Expense Statement was incorrect or commercially unreasonable, then either (a) Landlord shall at its election
reimburse Tenant for any overpayment or credit the amount of such overpayment against the next monthly installment of Operating Expenses payable under this Lease, or (b) Tenant shall within thirty (30) days after such determination pay any
amounts due to Landlord. Tenant agrees to pay the cost of such audit, provided that, if the audit reveals that Landlords determination of Operating Expenses was overstated by more than five percent (5%), Landlord shall pay the cost of such
audit; provided that the audit cost paid by Landlord shall not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the overstated amount,
8. REPAIRS, MAINTENANCE, UTILITIES AND SERVICES.
8.1 Standard of Repair, Maintenance and Replacement. Landlord and
Tenant acknowledge that, after the Expiration Date, Landlord may redevelop the Property. Accordingly, during the Term of this Lease, the standard of repair, maintenance and replacement applicable to the Property shall be that which is reasonably
necessary or appropriate to maintain or achieve a useable, safe, clean and sanitary condition.
8.2 Landlords Obligations. Except as
specifically provided in this Lease, Landlord shall not be required to furnish any services, facilities or utilities to the Premises or to Tenant, and Tenant assumes full responsibility for obtaining and paying for all services, facilities and

aware of the need for any repair, replacement or maintenance which is Landlords responsibility under this Section of which it becomes aware. The costs of such repair, replacement, maintenance, utility or service shall be included in Operating
Expenses to the extent provided In Article 7; provided that, subject to Section 13.5, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord in full and within twenty (20) Business Days after written demand for the cost of any repair to the Property, Building
Structure or Building Systems that is attributable to misuse by Tenant or Tenants Agents. The reimbursement shall be Additional Rent. Tenant hereby waives and releases any right it may have under any Applicable Laws to make any repairs that
are Landlords obligation under this Section.

Expenditure in excess of $100,000 in one lump sum payment, to be paid upon completion of the Capital Expenditure work and presentation of reasonable evidence of such costs.

Tenant shall be due at such times as are provided elsewhere in this Lease, and Landlord need not wait until the termination of this Lease, by expiration of the Term or otherwise, to recover them by legal action or in any other manner. Landlord may

cumulative and shall be in addition to every other right or remedy provided for in this Lease or now or hereafter existing at law or In equity and the exercise of the rights or remedies provided for in this Lease or now or hereafter existing at law

interest of Landlord under this Lease, (a Successor) shall be liable for any default by Landlord or any other matter that occurred prior to the date the Successor succeeded to Landlords interest in this Lease, and
(ii) Tenant shall, notwithstanding any subordination, attorn to and become the tenant of the Successor, at the option of the Successor. Tenant covenants and agrees, however, to execute and deliver, upon demand by Landlord and in the form
reasonably requested by Landlord, any additional documents evidencing the priority or subordination of this Lease with respect to any such ground leases, underlying leases, reciprocal easement agreements or similar documents or instruments, or with
respect to the lien of any such mortgage or deed of trust and Tenants failure to execute and deliver any such document within ten (10) Business Days after such demand by Landlord shall constitute an Event of Default without further
notice. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the written agreement of the mortgagee or trustee named in any mortgage, deed of trust or other encumbrance, and any landlord under any ground lease or underlying lease, that so
long as an Event of Default by Tenant is not in existence, neither this Lease nor any of Tenants rights hereunder shall be terminated or modified, nor shall Tenants possession of the Premises be disturbed or interfered with, by any
trustees sale or by an action or proceeding to foreclose said mortgage, deed of trust or other encumbrance.
17. LIMITATION OF LANDLORDS LIABILITY.
17.1 Limitation. Landlord shall not be responsible for or liable to
Tenant and Tenant hereby releases Landlord, waives all claims against Landlord and assumes the risk for any injury, loss or damage to any person or property in or about the Property by or from any cause whatsoever (other than Landlords gross
negligence or willful misconduct or breach of this Lease) including, without limitation, (a) acts or omissions of persons occupying adjoining premises, (b) theft or vandalism, (c) burst, stopped or leaking water, gas, sewer or steam
pipes, (d) loss of utility service, (e) accident, fire or casualty, (f) nuisance, and (g) work done by Landlord in the Property. There shall be no abatement of Rent and no liability of Landlord by reason of any injury to or
interference with Tenants business arising from the making of any repairs, alterations or improvements to any portion of the Property or to fixtures, appurtenances and equipment in the Property or arising from the provision of any utilities or
services to the Premises; provided, however, that in the event Landlord fails to perform its obligations to make repairs, alterations or improvements or provide any utilities or services or performs such obligations in a negligent manner in each
case which results in Tenant being unable to operate its
- 35 -
business at the Premises for a period of more than five (5) days, then Tenant shall be entitled to an abatement of Rent commencing on the sixth (6th) business day Tenant is unable to
operate and continuing until the Premises are again available for operation of Tenants business. Such Rent abatement shall be Tenants only remedy in the event of a negligent interference with Tenants business and Tenant shall not
be entitled to damages or to termination of this Lease arising from Landlords repairs, alterations, improvements or provision of utilities or services. No interference with Tenants operations in the Premises shall constitute a
constructive or other eviction of Tenant. Tenant hereby waives and releases any right it may have to make repairs at Landlords expense under Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code, or under any similar law, statute or ordinance
now or hereafter in effect.
17.2 Sale of Property. It is agreed
that Landlord may at any time sell, assign or transfer its interest as landlord in and to this Lease, and may at any time sell, assign or transfer its interest in and to the Property. In the event of any transfer of Landlords interest in this
Lease or in the Property, the transferor shall be automatically relieved of any and all of Landlords obligations and liabilities accruing from and after the date of such transfer; provided that the transferee assumes all of Landlords
obligations under this Lease. Tenant hereby agrees to attorn to Landlords assignee, transferee, or purchaser from and after the date of notice to Tenant of such assignment and assumption, transfer or sale, in the same manner and with the same
force and effect as though this Lease were made in the first instance by and between Tenant and the assignee, transferee or purchaser.
17.3 No Personal Liability. In the event of any default by
Landlord hereunder, Tenant shall look only to Landlords interest in the Property and rents therefrom and any available insurance proceeds for the satisfaction of Tenants remedies, and no other property or assets of Landlord or any
trustee, partner, member, officer or director thereof, disclosed or undisclosed, shall be subject to levy, execution or other enforcement procedure for the satisfaction of Tenants remedies under or with respect to this Lease.
18.1 Landlords Repair Obligation. If the Property or any portion
thereof is damaged by fine or other casualty and the cost of repairing such damage or destruction is estimated to cost One Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($150,000) or more (as reasonably determined by Landlord), Landlord shall have the option,
exercisable within sixty (60) days after the date of such damage either to: (a) notify Tenant of Landlords intention to repair such damage, in which event this Lease shall continue in full force and effect (unless terminated by
Tenant pursuant to Section 18.2 below), or (b) notify Tenant of Landlords election to terminate this Lease as of the date of the damage, unless reinstated by Tenant in accordance with this Section 18.1. If such notice to
terminate is given by Landlord, this Lease shall terminate as of the date of such damage. If within fifteen (15) days after receipt of a notice from Landlord electing to terminate this Lease, Tenant sends Landlord a notice electing to reimburse
Landlord for the entire cost of such repairs, this Lease shall not terminate, Landlord shall complete such repairs and Tenant shall promptly reimburse Landlord for the actual cost of such repair.
18.2 Termination by Tenant. If Landlord elects or is required to repair
and any such repair (a) is not or cannot practicably be substantially completed by Landlord within
- 36 -
one hundred twenty (120) days after the occurrence of such damage or destruction and (b) the damage materially negatively impacts Tenants business operations, then Tenant may, at
its option, upon written notice to Landlord to be delivered within fifteen (15) days after receipt of Landlords notice, elect to terminate this Lease as of the date of the occurrence of such damage or destruction.
18.3 Rent Adjustment. In case of termination pursuant to Sections 18.1
or above, the Base Rent and Operating Expenses shall be reduced by a proportionate amount based upon the square footage of the Premises rendered unusable, and Tenant shall pay such reduced Base Rent and Operating Expenses up to the date of vacation
of the Premises. If Landlord is required or elects to make repairs, and Tenant does not terminate this Lease pursuant to Section 18.2, Landlord shall repair the Property and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect except that Tenant
shall be entitled to a proportionate reduction of Base Rent and Operating Expenses from the date of such casualty and during the period such repairs are being made by a proportionate amount based upon the square footage of the Premises rendered
unusable. The full amount of Base Rent and Operating Expenses shall again become payable immediately upon the completion of such work of repair, reconstruction or restoration, The repairs to be made by Landlord under this Article shall not include,
and Landlord shall not be required to repair, any casualty damage to Tenants Property or any Alterations.
18.4 Tenant Obligations. If Landlord elects or is required
to repair, reconstruct or restore the Premises after any damage or destruction, Tenant shall be responsible at its own expense for the repair and replacement of any of Tenants Property and any Alterations which Tenant elects to replace.
18.5 No Claim. Tenant shall have no interest in or claim to
any portion of the proceeds of any property insurance or self-insurance maintained by Landlord in connection with the damage. If Landlord is entitled and elects not to rebuild the Premises, Landlord shall relinquish to Tenant such claim as Landlord
may have for any part of the proceeds of any insurance maintained by Tenant under Section 13.2 of this Lease.
18.6 No Damages. If Landlord is required or elects to make
any repairs, reconstruction or restoration of any damage or destruction to the Premises under any of the provisions of this Article 18, Tenant shall not be entitled to any damages by reason of any inconvenience or loss sustained by Tenant as a
result thereof. Except as expressly provided in Section 18.3, there shall be no reduction, change or abatement of any rental or other charge payable by Tenant to Landlord hereunder, or in the method of computing, accounting for or paying the
same. Tenant hereby waives the provisions of Section 1932(2) and Section 1933(4) of the California Civil Code, or any other statute or law that may be in effect at the time of a casualty under which a lease is automatically terminated or a
tenant is given the right to terminate a lease due to a casualty.
19. EMINENT DOMAIN.
19.1 Taking. If all or any part of the Premises shall be taken as a
result of the exercise of the power of eminent domain or any transfer in lieu thereof, this Lease shall terminate as to the part so taken as of the date of taking or as of the date of final judgment,
- 37 -
whichever is earlier, and, in the case of a partial taking of the Property, either Landlord or Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease as to the balance of the Property by written
notice to the other within thirty (30) days after such date, provided, however, that a condition to the exercise by Tenant of such right to terminate shall be that the portion of the Premises taken shall be of such extent and nature as
substantially to handicap, impede or impair Tenants use of the balance of the Premises. If any material part of the Common Area shall be taken as a result of the exercise of the power of eminent domain or any transfer in lieu thereof, whether
or not the Premises are affected, Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease by written notice to Tenant within thirty (30) days of the date of taking. If any material part of the Common Area shall be taken as a result of the
exercise of the power of eminent domain or any transfer in lieu thereof, such that Tenants access to or use of the Premises is materially adversely affected, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by written notice to Landlord
within thirty (30) days of the date of taking,
19.2 Award. In
the event of any taking, Landlord shall be entitled to any and all compensation, damages, income, rent, awards, or any interest therein whatsoever which may be paid or made in connection therewith, and Tenant shall assign to Landlord any right to
compensation or damages for the condemnation of its leasehold interest. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to prohibit Tenant from making a separate claim against the condemning authority for the value of Tenants Property and moving
expenses, provided such claim does not delay or diminish Landlords claim or award.
19.3 Partial Taking. In the event of a partial taking of the Premises
which does not result in a termination of this Lease, the Base Rent and Operating Expenses shall be adjusted as follows:
(a) In the event of a partial taking, if this Lease is not terminated pursuant to
this Article 19, Landlord shall repair, restore or reconstruct the Premises to a useable state; provided that Landlord shall not be required to expend any sums other than those received pursuant to Section 19.2, and in the event Tenant does not
elect to reimburse Landlord for such excess costs within thirty (30) days after notice from Landlord as to the amount of such excess cost, Landlord may elect to terminate this Lease;
(b) During the period between the date of the partial taking and the completion of
any necessary repairs, reconstruction or restoration, Tenant shall be entitled to a reduction of Base Rent and Operating Expenses by a proportionate amount based upon the extent of interference with Tenants operations in the Premises; and
(c) Upon completion of said repairs, reconstruction or restoration, and thereafter
throughout the remainder of the Term, the Base Rent and Operating Expenses shall be recalculated based on the remaining total number of square feet of Rentable Area of the Premises.
19.4 Temporary Taking. Notwithstanding any other provision of this
Article, if a taking occurs with respect to all or any portion of the Premises for a period of twelve (12) months or less, this Lease shall remain unaffected thereby and Tenant shall continue to pay Base Rent and Additional Rent and to perform
all of the terms, conditions and covenants of this Lease,
- 38 -
provided that Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease if the taking continues beyond twelve (12) months by giving Landlord notice of such termination within twenty (20) days
following the expiration of such twelve (12) month period. If Tenant exercises such termination right, this Lease and the estate hereby granted shall terminate as of the thirtieth (30th) day following the giving of such notice. In the
event of any such temporary taking, and if this Lease is not terminated, Tenant shall be entitled to receive that portion of any award which represents compensation for the use or occupancy of the Premises during the Term up to the total Base Rent
and Additional Rent owing by Tenant for the period of the taking, and Landlord shall be entitled to receive the balance of any award.
19.5 Sale in Lieu of Condemnation. A voluntary sale by Landlord of all
or any part of the Property to any public or quasi-public body, agency or person, corporate or otherwise, having the power of eminent domain, either under threat of condemnation or while condemnation proceedings are pending, shall be deemed to be a
taking under the power of eminent domain for the purposes of this Article.
19.6 Waiver. Except as provided in this Article, Tenant hereby waives
and releases any right it may have under any Applicable Law to terminate this Lease as a result of a taking, including without limitation Sections 1265.120 and 1265.130 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, or any similar law, statute or
ordinance now or hereafter in effect.
20.1 Surrender. On or before the ninetieth (90th) day
preceding the Expiration Date, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing of Tenants targeted date (the Move-Out Date) upon which Tenant plans to surrender the Premises to Landlord. At least sixty (60) days
prior to the Move-Out Date, Landlord and Tenant shall walk through the Premises to identify any repair and removal work to be performed by Tenant, provided that failure by any party to participate in the walk-through shall not relieve Tenant of any
of its obligations hereunder. Prior to the Termination Date, Tenant shall repair at Tenants sole cost, all damage caused by removal of Tenants Property and any Alterations as required under this Lease, and shall leave the floor broom
clean and the walls patched and paint-ready. Upon the Termination Date, Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord in as good order and repair as on the Commencement Date, reasonable wear and tear and damage by casualty excepted, free and clear
of all letting and occupancies and free of Tenants Hazardous Materials as required pursuant to Article 12, with all applicable closure requirements satisfied in accordance with Section 12.10, and with all of Tenants Property
(including all movable equipment, furniture, trade fixtures and other personal property) removed from the Premises. Subject to Article 9, upon any termination of this Lease all improvements, except for Tenants Property, shall automatically and
without further act by Landlord or Tenant, become the property of Landlord, free and clear of any claim or interest therein by Tenant, and without payment therefore by Landlord. Tenant acknowledges that it is aware of Landlords plans to
redevelop the Property upon the termination of this Lease, and, therefore, if the Premises are not surrendered as of the end of the Term in the manner and condition described in this Section 20.1, Landlord may suffer extensive damage. In the
event of such failure or delay, Tenant shall indemnify, defend, protect and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all Losses resulting from or caused by Tenants delay or failure in so surrendering the Premises, including, without
limitation, any lost rents and any claims made by
- 39 -
any succeeding tenant due to such delay or failure and any expense, loss or damage (including consequential and indirect damages) incurred by Landlord as a result of the delay in Landlords
redevelopment plans for the Property.
20.2 Holding Over. Any
holding over after the expiration of the Term with the consent of Landlord shall be construed to automatically extend the Term on a month-to-month basis at a Base Rent equal one-hundred fifty percent (150%) of the then-current Base Rent and
shall otherwise be on the terms and conditions of this Lease to the extent applicable. Any holding over without Landlords consent shall entitle Landlord to exercise any or all of its remedies provided in Article 15, notwithstanding that
Landlord may elect to accept one or more payments of Base Rent and Operating Expenses from Tenant.
20.3 Quitclaim. At the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease,
Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord, within ten (10) days after written demand from Landlord to Tenant, any quitclaim deed or other document required by any reputable title company, licensed to operate in the State of
California, to remove the cloud or encumbrance created by this Lease from the Property.
21. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.
Tenant shall tender to Landlord within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of a written request any information
reasonably requested by Landlord regarding the financial stability, credit worthiness or ability of Tenant to pay the Rent due under this Lease. Landlord shall be entitled to rely upon the information provided in determining whether or not to enter

with the negotiation of this Lease are true and correct copies of the originals, (b) Tenant has not withheld any information from Landlord that is material to Tenants credit worthiness, financial condition or ability to perform its
obligations hereunder, (c) all information supplied by Tenant to Landlord is true, correct and accurate, and (d) no part of the information supplied by Tenant to Landlord contains any misleading or fraudulent statements. A default under

a be entitled to disclose Tenants financial information to (i) its agents, employees and consultants, (ii) potential purchasers of an interest in the Property, and (iii) lenders contemplating making a loan to the Landlord to be
secured by the Property, provided that such recipients are advised of the confidential nature of such information and agree to maintain such confidentiality.

shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord or to any party designated by Landlord (including prospective lenders, purchasers, ground lessees and others similarly situated), a certificate of Tenant stating, to the best of Tenants
knowledge: (a) that Tenant has accepted the Premises, (b) the Commencement Date and Expiration Date of this
- 40 -
Lease, (c) that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if there have been modifications, that same is in full force and effect as modified and stating the modifications),

obligations under this Lease that may reasonably be required by any of such persons. Failure to deliver such certificate when due shall constitute an Event of Default, At the request of Tenant, Landlord shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to
Tenant a certificate with similar types of information and in the time period set forth above. Failure by either Landlord or Tenant to execute, acknowledge and deliver such certificate shall be conclusive evidence that this Lease is in full force
and effect and has not been modified except as may be represented by the requesting party, if any term in any certificate conflicts with the terms of this Lease, the terms of this Lease shall govern.
23. RULES AND REGULATIONS; SIGNS.
23.1 Rules and Regulations. Tenant shall faithfully observe and comply
with all rules and regulations and all reasonable modifications thereof and additions thereto from time to time put into effect by Landlord (the Rules and Regulations). Landlord shall not enforce such Rules and

written consent of Landlord, not to be unreasonably withheld, and, if required, the approval of the City of Palo Alto.

If Landlord is unable to fulfill or is delayed in fulfilling any of Landlords obligations under this Lease, by reason
of acts of God, accidents, breakage, repairs, strikes, lockouts, other labor disputes, inability to obtain utilities or materials or by any other reason beyond Landlords reasonable control, then such inability or delay by Landlord shall excuse
the performance of Landlord for a period equal to the duration of such prevention, delay or stoppage, and no such inability or delay by Landlord shall constitute an actual or constructive eviction, in whole or in part, or entitle Tenant to any
abatement or diminution of Base Rent or Additional Rent, or relieve Tenant from any of its obligations under this Lease, or impose any liability upon Landlord or Landlords Agents by reason of inconvenience, annoyance, interruption, injury or
loss to or interference with Tenants business or use and occupancy or quiet enjoyment of the Premises or any loss or damage occasioned thereby. If Tenant is unable to fulfill or is delayed in
