The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of the CASp inspection, the payment of the fee for the CASp inspection, and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the premises. Landlord and Tenant hereby acknowledge and agree that in the event that Tenant elects to perform a CASp inspection of the Premises hereunder, such CASp inspection shall be performed at Tenants sole cost and expense and Tenant shall be solely responsible for the cost of any repairs, upgrades, alterations and/or modifications to the Premises or the Building necessary to correct any such violations of construction-related accessibility standards identified by such CASp inspection as required by Regulation, which repairs, upgrades, alterations and/or modifications may, at Landlords option, be performed by Landlord at Tenants expense, payable as Additional Rent within ten (10) days following Landlords demand.

However, Tenant shall be liable for any parking charges, utilities or special services provided to Tenant during such period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant takes possession of the Premises before the Commencement Date for any purpose other than as expressly provided in this Paragraph, such possession shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease and Tenant shall pay Base Rent, and any other charges payable hereunder to Landlord for each day of possession before the Commencement Date. Said early possession shall not advance the Expiration Date. Landlord may withdraw such permission to enter the Premises prior to the Commencement Date at any time that Landlord reasonably determines that such entry by Tenant is causing a dangerous situation for Landlord, Tenant or their respective contractors or employees, or if Landlord reasonably determines that such entry by Tenant is hampering or otherwise preventing Landlord from proceeding with the completion of the Landlords Work at the earliest possible date.
The term of this Lease shall commence on the Commencement Date and expire on the Expiration Date (the Lease Term). The Expiration Date of this Lease shall be the date stated in the Basic Lease Terms or, if delivery of the Premises is delayed as set forth in Paragraph 2.1 or Paragraph 2.2, the last day of the calendar month that is the number of full calendar months stated in the Basic Lease Terms from the month in which the Commencement Date occurs.

Base Rent and Additional Rent for any partial month during the Lease Term shall be prorated to reflect the number of days during the relevant month. Payment by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of any amount less than the full Base Rent or Additional Rent due from Tenant, or any disbursement or statement on any check or letter accompanying any check or rent payment, shall not in any event be deemed an accord and satisfaction. Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlords right to recover the balance of such rental or pursue any other remedy provided in this Lease.
4.2 Lockbox Payments. Tenant shall pay Base Rent, Additional Rent or other charges under this Lease to a lock box or other depository whereby checks issued in payment of such items are initially cashed or deposited by a person or entity other than Landlord (albeit on Landlords authority); for any and all purposes under this Lease: (i) Landlord shall not be deemed to have accepted such payment until the date on which such funds are actually received by Landlord or in the lockbox account, (ii) Landlord shall be deemed to have accepted such payment if (and only if) Landlord shall not have immediately refunded (or attempted to immediately refund) such payment to Tenant and (iii) Landlord shall not be bound by any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment and no such endorsement, statement or letter shall be deemed an accord and satisfaction. Landlord or Landlords bank may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlords right to recover the balance of such rent or pursue any other remedy provided in this Lease, at law or in equity.
4.3 Abated Base Rent. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, so long as Tenant is not in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, Tenant shall be entitled to an abatement of Base Rent with respect to the Premises, as originally described in this Lease, in the amount of $27,043.25 for the first (1st) two (2) full calendar months of the Lease Term. The total amount of Base Rent abated pursuant to this Section 4.3 shall equal $54,086.50. If Tenant defaults under this Lease at any time during the Lease Term and fails to cure such default within any applicable cure period under this Lease, then all unamortized Abated Base Rent (i.e. based upon the amortization of the Abated Base Rent in equal monthly amounts, without interest, during the period commencing on the Commencement Date and ending on the original Expiration Date) shall immediately become due and payable. Only Base Rent shall be abated pursuant to this Paragraph, as more particularly described herein, and all other Rent and other costs and charges specified in this Lease shall remain as due and payable pursuant to the provisions of this Lease.
Letter of Credit.
Concurrent with Tenants execution and delivery of this Lease to Landlord, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, as collateral for the full performance by Tenant of all of its obligations under this Lease and for all losses and damages Landlord may suffer as a result of Tenants failure to comply with one or more provisions of this Lease, including, but not limited to, any post lease termination damages under Section 1951.2 of the California Civil Code, an Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit (the Letter of Credit) in the amount of Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000.00). The following terms and conditions shall apply to the Letter of Credit:
5.1 The Letter of Credit shall be in favor of Landlord, shall be issued by a bank reasonably acceptable to Landlord with a Standard & Poors rating of A or better, shall comply with all of the terms and conditions of this Article and shall otherwise be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit G. Landlord hereby approves Bridge Bank (and its affiliate Western Alliance Bank) as the issuing bank for the Letter of Credit.
5.2 The Letter of Credit or any replacement Letter of Credit shall be irrevocable for the term thereof and shall automatically renew on a year to year basis until a period ending not earlier than two (2) months subsequent to the Expiration Date (the LOC Expiration Date) without any action whatsoever on the part of Landlord; provided that the issuing bank shall have the right not to renew the Letter of Credit by giving written notice to Landlord not less than sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the then current term of the Letter of Credit that it does not intend to renew the Letter of Credit. Tenant understands that the election by the issuing bank not to renew the Letter of Credit shall not, in any event, diminish the obligation of Tenant to deposit a security deposit or maintain such an irrevocable Letter of Credit in favor of Landlord through the LOC Expiration Date.
5.3 Landlord, or its then authorized representative, upon Tenants failure to comply with one or more provisions of this Lease, or as otherwise specifically agreed by Landlord and Tenant pursuant to this Lease or any amendment hereof, without prejudice to any other remedy provided in this Lease or by Regulations, shall have the right from time to time to make one or more draws on the Letter of Credit and use all or part of the proceeds in accordance with Section 5.4 below. In addition, if Tenant fails to furnish a renewal or replacement letter of credit complying with all of the provisions of this Article 5 at least sixty (60) days prior to the stated expiration date of the Letter of Credit then held by Landlord, Landlord may draw upon such Letter of Credit and bold the proceeds thereof (and such proceeds need not be segregated) in accordance with the terms of this Article 5. Funds may be drawn down on the Letter of Credit upon presentation to the issuing bank of Landlords (or Landlords then authorized representatives) certification set forth in Exhibit G.
5.4 Tenant acknowledges and agrees (and the Letter of Credit shall so state) that the Letter of Credit shall be honored by the issuing bank without inquiry as to the truth of the statements set forth in such draw request and regardless of whether the Tenant disputes the content of such statement. The proceeds of the Letter of Credit shall constitute Landlords sole and separate property (and not Tenants property or the property of Tenants bankruptcy estate) and Landlord may immediately upon any draw (and without notice to Tenant) apply or offset the proceeds of the Letter of Credit: (a) against any rent or other amounts payable by Tenant under this Lease that is not paid when due; (b) against all losses and damages that Landlord has suffered or that Landlord reasonably estimates that it may suffer as a result of Tenants failure to comply with one or more provisions of this Lease, including any damages arising under Section 1951.2 of the California Civil Code following termination of this Lease; (c) against any costs incurred by Landlord in connection with this Lease (including attorneys fees) not reimbursed by Tenant within the time period required under this Lease; and (d) against any other amount that Landlord may spend or become obligated to spend by reason of Tenants default. Provided Tenant has performed all of its obligations under this Lease, Landlord agrees to pay to Tenant within sixty (60) days after the LOC Expiration Date the amount of any proceeds of the Letter of Credit received by Landlord and not applied as allowed above; provided, that if prior to the LOC Expiration Date a voluntary petition is filed by Tenant or any guarantor, or an involuntary petition is filed against Tenant or any Guarantor by any of Tenants or guarantors creditors, under the Federal Bankruptcy Code, then Landlord shall not be obligated to make such payment in the amount of the unused Letter of Credit proceeds until either all preference issues relating to payments under this Lease have been resolved in such bankruptcy or reorganization case or such bankruptcy or reorganization case has been dismissed, in each case pursuant to a final court order not subject to appeal or any stay pending appeal.
5.5 If, as result of any application or use by Landlord of all or any part of the Letter of Credit, the amount of the Letter of Credit shall be less than the amount set forth in this Article 5, Tenant shall, within ten (10) days thereafter, provide Landlord with additional letter(s) of credit in an amount equal to the deficiency (or a replacement letter of credit in the total amount required pursuant to this Article 5), and any such additional (or replacement) letter of credit shall comply with all of the provisions of this Article 5, and if Tenant fails to comply with the foregoing, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, the same shall constitute an incurable event of default by Tenant. Tenant further covenants and warrants that it will neither assign nor encumber the Letter of Credit or any part thereof and that neither Landlord nor its successors or assigns will be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance.
5.6 Landlord may, at any time and without notice to Tenant and without first obtaining Tenants consent thereto, transfer all or any portion of its interest in and to the Letter of Credit to another party, person or entity, including Landlords mortgagee and/or to have the Letter of Credit reissued in the name of Landlords mortgagee. If Landlord transfers its interest in the Building and transfers the Letter of Credit (or any proceeds thereof then held by Landlord) in whole or in part to the transferee, Landlord shall, without any further agreement between the parties hereto, thereupon be released by Tenant from all liability therefor. The provisions hereof shall apply to every transfer or assignment of all or any part of the Letter of Credit to a new landlord. In connection with any such transfer of the Letter of Credit by Landlord, Tenant shall, at Tenants sole cost and expense, execute and submit to the issuer of the Letter of Credit such applications, documents and instruments as may be necessary to effectuate such transfer. Tenant shall be responsible for paying the issuers transfer and processing fees in connection with any transfer of the Letter of Credit and, if Landlord advances any such fees (without having any obligation to do so), Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any such transfer or processing fees within ten (10) days after Landlords written request therefor.
5.7 If the Letter of Credit expires earlier than the LOC Expiration Date, or the issuing bank notifies Landlord that it shall not renew the Letter of Credit, Landlord shall accept a renewal thereof or substitute Letter of Credit (such renewal or substitute Letter of Credit to be in effect not later than sixty (60) days prior to the expiration thereof), irrevocable and automatically renewable through the LOC Expiration Date upon the same terms as the expiring Letter of Credit or upon such other terms as may be acceptable to Landlord. However, if (a) the Letter of Credit is not timely renewed, or (b) a substitute Letter of Credit, complying with all of the terms and conditions of this paragraph is not timely received, Landlord may present such Letter of Credit to the issuing bank, and the entire sum so obtained shall be paid to Landlord, to be held by Landlord as a security deposit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall be entitled to receive from Tenant all reasonable attorneys fees and costs incurred in connection with the review of any proposed substitute Letter of Credit pursuant to this Section.
5.8 Landlord and Tenant (a) acknowledge and agree that in no event or circumstance shall the Letter of Credit or any renewal thereof or substitute therefor or any proceeds thereof be deemed to be or treated as a security deposit under any Regulation applicable to security deposits in the commercial context including Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code, as such section now exist or as may be hereafter amended or succeeded (Security Deposit Laws), (b) acknowledge and agree that the Letter of Credit (including any renewal thereof or substitute therefor or any proceeds thereof) is not intended to serve as a security deposit, and the Security Deposit Laws shall have no applicability or relevancy thereto, and (c) waive any and all rights, duties and obligations either party may now or, in the future, will have relating to or arising from the Security Deposit Laws. Tenant hereby waives the provisions of Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code and all other provisions of Regulations, now or hereafter in effect, which (i) establish the time frame by which Landlord must refund a security deposit under a lease, and/or (ii) provide that Landlord may claim from the security deposit only those sums reasonably necessary to remedy defaults in the payment of rent, to repair damage caused by Tenant or to clean the Premises, it being agreed that Landlord may, in addition, claim those sums specified above in this Section 5.8 and/or those sums reasonably necessary to compensate Landlord for any loss or damage caused by Tenants breach of this Lease or the acts or omission of Tenant or Tenants Agents, including any damages Landlord suffers following termination of this Lease.
5.9 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, in the event that at any time the financial institution which issues said Letter of Credit is declared insolvent by the FDIC or is closed for any reason, Tenant must, within ten (10) days, provide a substitute Letter of Credit that satisfies the requirements of this Lease hereby from a financial institution acceptable to Landlord, in Landlords reasonable discretion. In such event, at Tenants election, Tenant may deliver to Landlord a cash security deposit (the Security Deposit) in an amount equal to the then-current required face amount of the Letter of Credit in lieu of such substitute Letter of Credit. In such event, such Security Deposit shall be subject to the remaining terms of this Paragraph 5.9. The Security Deposit shall be a debt from Landlord to Tenant. Landlord may commingle the Security Deposit with its funds and shall have no obligation to pay any interest on the Security Deposit. Landlord shall have the right to offset against the Security Deposit any sums owing from Tenant to Landlord and not paid when due, any damages caused by Tenants default, the cost of curing any default by Tenant should Landlord elect to do so, and the cost of performing any repair, maintenance or cleanup that is the responsibility of Tenant under this Lease. Offset against the Security Deposit shall not be an exclusive remedy in any of the above cases but may be invoked by Landlord, at its option, in addition to any other remedy provided by law or this Lease for Tenants nonperformance. Landlord shall give notice to Tenant each time an offset is claimed against the Security Deposit, and unless the Lease is terminated, Tenant shall within ten (10) days after such notice deposit with Landlord a sum equal to the amount of the offset so that the total deposit amount, net of offset, shall remain constant throughout the Lease Term. Tenants failure to make such deposit after offset shall be a default under this Lease. Any remaining balance of such Security Deposit shall be returned by Landlord to Tenant (or, at Landlords option, to the last assignee of Tenant) after Tenants obligations under this Lease have been fulfilled. Tenant hereby waives the provisions of Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code, or any successor statute, and agrees that Landlord may hold and apply the Security Deposit to future rent damages. In the event Tenant substitutes the Letter of Credit required hereunder with a cash Security Deposit pursuant to this Paragraph 5.9, if Tenant would have been entitled to reduce the face amount of the Letter of Credit pursuant to Paragraph 5.10 below, then the Security Deposit amount shall be reduced by the same amount that the face amount of the Letter of Credit would have been reduced under Paragraph 5.10 and Landlord shall credit the amount by which the Security Deposit is reduced against Tenants next arising payment(s) of Base Rent after the later to occur of(a) Landlords receipt of the Notice, or (b) the date upon which Tenant is entitled to a reduction in the Security Deposit as provided above. Tenant shall have no right to any return or reimbursement of the portion of the Security Deposit applied by Landlord as provided herein and hereby waives and releases any and all claims to such portion of the Security Deposit so applied by Landlord pursuant to this Paragraph 5.9.
5.10 Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, provided that Tenant has timely paid all Rent due under this Lease, the Letter of Credit amount shall be reduced on the following dates (each. a Reduction Effective Date) to be equal to the following corresponding amounts (each, a Reduced Amount): (a) $150,000 .00 on the first (1st) day of the thirty-seventh (37th) full calendar month of the Lease Term; and (b) $125,000.00 on the first (1st) day of the forty-ninth (49th) full calendar month of the Lease Tenn. In addition to the foregoing, and provided that Tenant has timely paid all Rent due under this Lease, if (A) Tenants Financial Information (defined below) reflects three (3) consecutive calendar quarters of profitability at any time during the Lease Term, as reasonably determined by Landlord, or (B) Tenants Financial Information reflects, to Landlords reasonable satisfaction, an infusion of additional capital funding in Tenant (in the form of cash or such other commitments for debt or equity financing that are reasonably acceptable to Landlord) in an amount not less than $10,000,000.00 (which may be cumulative over time and not necessarily in one financing event), Tenant shall have the right to reduce the amount of the Letter of Credit amount so that the new Letter of Credit amount will be $37,276.27. If Tenant believes it is entitled to a reduction in the Letter of Credit, Tenant shall provide Landlord with written notice requesting that the Letter of Credit be reduced as provided above (the Reduction Notice).
If Tenant believes it is entitled to a reduction in the Letter of Credit pursuant to subsections (A) or (B) above, concurrent with Tenants delivery of the Reduction Notice, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord for review Tenants most recent audited financial statements prepared in the ordinary course of Tenants business or, if unaudited, certified by Tenants chief financial officer as being prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) (or such other accounting method, consistently applied, reasonably approved by Landlord) and true, complete and correct in all material respects, and any other financial information (including, if applicable, evidence of funding commitments) reasonably requested by Landlord (Tenants Financial Information). Landlord shall keep Tenants Financial Information confidential, subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of Paragraph 26.15 below. If the Letter of Credit amount is reduced in accordance with this Paragraph 5.10, Tenant shall either (i) deliver to Landlord a new Letter of Credit in the amount of the Reduced Amount and otherwise satisfying the requirements of this Paragraph 5, whereupon Landlord shall return the Letter of Credit then held by Landlord (the Existing Letter of Credit) to Tenant within thirty (30) days after the later of Landlords receipt of such new Letter of Credit or the Reduction Effective Date, or (ii) deliver to Landlord an amendment to the Existing Letter of Credit, executed by and binding upon the issuer of the Existing Letter of Credit and in a form reasonably acceptable to Landlord, reducing the amount of the Existing Letter of Credit to the Reduced Amount, whereupon Landlord shall execute and return such amendment to Tenant within thirty (30) days after the later of Landlords receipt of such amendment or the Reduction Effective Date.

Further, in no event shall the foregoing provision describing the time period during which Landlord is to deliver the statement of Actual Expenses in any manner limit or otherwise prejudice Landlords right to modify such statement of Actual Expenses after such time period if new, additional or different information relating to such statement of Actual Expenses is discovered or otherwise determined.
8.2 Tenants Proportionate Share. Tenants proportionate share of Taxes shall mean that percentage which the Premises Area set forth in the Basic Lease Terms bears to the total rentable square footage of all buildings in the Project located on the same Tax Parcel as the Building. Tenants proportionate share of Operating Expenses for the Building shall be computed by dividing the Premises Area by the total rentable area of the Building (provided, however, for Operating Expenses that are Project expenses, Tenants proportionate share shall be computed by dividing the Premises Area by the total rentable area of the Project). If in Landlords reasonable judgment either of these methods of allocation results in an inappropriate allocation to Tenant, Landlord shall select some other reasonable method of determining Tenants proportionate share.
8.3 Taxes Charged. As used herein, Taxes means any form of assessment, license, fee, rent tax. levy, penalty (if a result of Tenants delinquency), or tax, imposed by any authority having the direct or indirect power to tax, or by any city, county, state or federal government or any improvement or other district or division thereof, whether such tax is: (i) determined by the area of the tax parcel in which the Building is located (the Tax Parcel) or any part thereof or the rent and other sums payable hereunder by Tenant or by other tenants, including, but not limited to, any gross income or excise tax levied by any of the foregoing authorities with respect to receipt of such rent or other sums due under this Lease; (ii) imposed upon any legal or equitable interest of Landlord in the Tax Parcel or the Premises or any part thereof; (iii) imposed upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring any interest in the Tax Parcel; (iv) levied or assessed in lieu of, in substitution for, or in addition to, existing or additional taxes against the Tax Parcel whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties; (v) imposed as a special assessment for such purposes as fire protection, street, sidewalk, road, utility construction and maintenance, refuse removal and for other governmental services; or (vi) imposed as a result of any transfer of any interest in the Tax Parcel by Landlord, or the construction of any improvements thereon or thereto. Tenant shall not, however, be obligated to pay (and the term Taxes shall not include) (i) any tax based upon Landlords net income, estate and inheritance taxes, transfer taxes or franchise taxes; or (ii) any charges or penalties or interest accrued through Landlords nonpayment or late payment of taxes or assessments. This Paragraph 8.3 is not intended to be duplicative in any way of Paragraph 8.4 below and Tenant shall have no obligation to pay any Taxes under this Paragraph 8.3 to the extent the same are payable by Tenant under Paragraph 8.4 and vice-versa. In addition, Tenant shall be liable for all taxes levied or assessed against any personal property or fixtures placed in the Premises and, when possible, shall cause such taxes to be assessed and billed separately from the real or personal property of Landlord. If any such taxes are levied or assessed against Landlord or Landlords property and (i) Landlord pays the same or (ii) the assessed value of Landlords property is increased by inclusion of such personal property and fixtures and Landlord pays the increased taxes, then, within thirty (30) days following receipt by Tenant of a copy of the applicable tax bill with Landlords written request for payment thereof, Tenant shall pay to Landlord such taxes as part of Tenants payment of Taxes.

The cost of any capital improvements, together with interest thereon at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 26.2, shall be amortized over the useful life of the improvement and only the annual amortized cost of such item shall be included in Operating Expenses annually. Landlord agrees to act in a commercially reasonable manner in incurring Operating Expenses, taking into consideration the class and the quality of the Building and shall extrapolate Operating Expenses in accordance with the methodology used to extrapolate Operating Expenses in comparable buildings owned by Landlord and its affiliates in the geographic area in which the Building is located.

The records obtained by Tenant shall be treated as confidential and at Landlords request, Tenant shall enter into a confidentiality agreement pertaining to all such records and any other information disclosed to Tenant in connection with its review. If any records are maintained at a location other than the office of the Building, Tenant may either inspect the records at such other location or pay for the reasonable cost of copying and shipping the records. If Tenant retains an agent to review Landlords records, the agent must be with a licensed, independent CPA firm to perform such review it shall be one of national standing which is reasonably acceptable to Landlord, is not compensated on a contingency basis and is also subject to such confidentiality agreement. Tenant shall be solely responsible for all costs, expenses and fees incurred for the audit. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord and Tenant determine that Operating Expenses for the year in question were less than stated by more than five (5%), Landlord, within thirty (30) days after its receipt of paid invoices therefor from Tenant, shall reimburse Tenant for the reasonable amounts paid by Tenant to third parties in connection with such review by Tenant in accordance with this Paragraph 8.4.3 (not to exceed $1,000.00).

If Tenant provides Landlord with a timely Objection Notice, Landlord and Tenant shall work together in good faith to resolve any issues raised in Tenants Objection Notice. If Landlord and Tenant determine that Operating Expenses for the calendar year in question are les s than reported, Landlord shall provide Tenant with a credit against the next installment of Base Rent in the amount of the overpayment by Tenant. Likewise, if Landlord and Tenant determine that Operating Expenses for the calendar year in question are greater than reported, Tenant shall pay Landlord the amount of any underpayment within thirty (30) days. In no event shall Tenant be permitted to examine Landlords records or to dispute any statement of Actual Expenses unless Tenant has paid and continues to pay all Rent when due.

11.5 Landlords Disclaimer. Landlord and Landlords Agents shall not be liable for any loss or damage to persons or property resulting from fire, explosion, falling plaster, glass, tile or sheetrock, steam, gas, electricity, water or rain which may leak from any part of the Building or from the pipes, appliances or plumbing works therein or from the roof, street or subsurface, or any other cause whatsoever, unless caused by or due to the sole negligence or willful acts of Landlord or Landlords Agents acting within the scope of their formal duties. Tenant shall give prompt written notice to Landlord in case of a casualty, accident or repair needed in the Premises.
12.1 Notice; Total Destruction. Tenant shall immediately give written notice to Landlord if the Premises or the Building are damaged or destroyed (a Damage or Destruction Notice).

Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease if: (a) a substantial portion of the Premises has been damaged by a fire or other casualty and Landlords Repair Estimate provides that such damage cannot reasonably be repaired (as reasonably determined by Landlord) within two hundred (200) days after Landlords receipt of all required permits to restore the Premises; (b) the casualty was not caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or any of Tenants Agents; and (c) Tenant provides Landlord with written notice of its intent to terminate within thirty (30) days after the date of Landlords Repair Estimate.

improvements required to be covered by Tenants insurance pursuant to Paragraph 11.2. If the Premises are untenantable in whole or part during the period commencing upon the date of the occurrence of such damage and ending upon substantial completion of Landlords required repairs or rebuilding, Rent shall be reduced during such period to the extent the Premises are not reasonably usable by Tenant for the Permitted Use.

If the damage to the Premises or Building occurs during the last twelve (12) months of the Lease Term in an amount exceeding twenty-five percent (25%) of the full construction replacement cost of the Building or Premises, respectively, either Landlord or Tenant may elect to terminate this Lease as of the date the damage occurred, regardless of the sufficiency of any insurance proceeds. The party electing to terminate this Lease shall give written notification to the other party of such election within thirty (30) days after Tenants notice to Landlord of the occurrence of the damage, in which event all unaccrued rights and obligations of the parties under this Lease shall cease and terminate except to the extent such obligations specifically survive termination of this Lease.
12.5 Repair of Damage. All repairs made by Landlord pursuant to this Paragraph 12 shall be accomplished as soon as is reasonably possible, subject to force majeure as described in Paragraph 26.1. Landlords good faith estimate of the cost of repairs of any damage, or of the replacement cost of the Premises or the Building, shall be conclusive as between Landlord and Tenant.

All insurance proceeds for repairs shall be payable solely to Landlord, and Tenant shall have no interest therein. Nothing herein shall be construed to obligate Landlord to expend monies in excess of the insurance proceeds received by Landlord. Landlord shall be responsible for the insurance deductible, unless the loss is caused by the negligent or willful acts of Tenant or Tenants Agents, in which case, and notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraph 11.3, Tenant shall be responsible for the amount of the deductible. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, Landlords obligation, should it elect or be obligated to repair or rebuild, shall be limited to the Premises or the Building as the same existed immediately prior to the casualty, excluding, however, Landlords Work and any Alterations made by Tenant.

If the Premises or the Building is substantially or totally destroyed by any cause whatsoever which is not covered by the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 12, this Lease shall terminate as of the date the destruction occurred; provided, however, that if the damage does not meet the Damage Threshold, Landlord may elect (but will not be required) to rebuild the Premises at Landlords own expense, in which case this Lease shall remain in full force and effect (subject to the terms of Paragraph 12.1 above). Landlord shall notify Tenant of such election within thirty (30) days after the casualty.
12.7 Insurance Proceeds Payable to Landlord. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in the event of any termination of this Lease as provided in this Paragraph 12, all insurance proceeds payable under policies maintained by Tenant covering Landlords Work and the Alterations made by Tenant shall be assigned and paid to Landlord.
13.1 Partial Taking. If a portion of the Premises and/or the Outside Area serving the Premises is condemned and Paragraph 13.2 does not apply, this Lease shall continue on the following terms:
13.1.1 Landlord shall be entitled to all of the proceeds of condemnation, and Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord as a result of the condemnation. Tenant shall, however, be entitled to make a separate claim for moving and relocation expenses and other damages suffered by Tenant, and Landlord agrees to reasonably cooperate, at no additional cost to Landlord, with Tenant to the extent such claim must be submitted with those of Landlord provided that in no event shall Landlords award be reduced by any claim made by Tenant.
13.1.2 Landlord shall proceed as soon as reasonably possible to make such repairs and alterations to the Premises as are necessary to restore the remaining Premises and/or the remaining Outside Area serving the Premises to a condition as comparable as reasonably practicable to that existing at the time of condemnation.

13.2 Total Taking. If a condemning authority takes the entire Premises or a portion sufficient to render the remainder unsuitable for Tenants use, then either party may elect to terminate this Lease effective on the date that title passes to the condemning authority. Landlord shall be entitled to all of the proceeds of condemnation, and Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord as a result of such condemnation. Tenant shall, however, be entitled to make a separate claim for moving and relocation expenses and other damages suffered by Tenant, and Landlord agrees to reasonably cooperate, at no additional cost to Landlord, with Tenant to the extent such claim must be submitted with those of Landlord provided that in no event shall Landlords award be reduced by any claim made by Tenant.
13.3 Statutory Waiver. Each party hereby waives the provisions of §1265.130 of the California Code of Civil Procedure allowing either party to petition the Superior Court to terminate this Lease in the event of a partial taking of the Project or Premises.
Assignment, Subletting and Other Transfers.
14.1 General. Except with respect to a Permitted Transfer (as defined below), neither the Lease nor any part of the Premises may be assigned, mortgaged, subleased or otherwise transferred, nor may a right of use of any portion of the Premises be conferred on any person or entity by any other means, without the prior written consent of Landlord which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Prior to effectuating any such assignment, sublease or other transfer, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing of the name and address of the proposed transferee, and deliver to Landlord with such notice a true and complete copy of the proposed assignment agreement, sublease or other occupancy agreement, current financial statements of such proposed transferee, a statement of the use of the Premises by such proposed transferee and such other information or documents as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to enable Landlord to determine the qualifications of the proposed transferee together with a request that Landlord consent thereto (Tenants Notice). Without limiting Landlords ability to deny or condition consent for any other reason, it shall not be considered unreasonable if Landlords consent to a proposed sublease, assignment or other transfer is denied based on the following: (i) the business of the proposed transferee (A) is not, in Landlords reasonable judgment, compatible with the nature and character of the Project or the businesses in the Project and/or (B) will conflict with any exclusive uses or use restrictions that Landlord has granted to other occupants of the Project, (ii) the financial strength of the proposed transferee is not at least equal to the financial strength of Tenant either at the time Tenant entered into this Lease or at the time of the proposed transfer (whichever is greater), (iii) the proposed transferee will excessively overpark the Building and/or the Project with automobiles or trucks (excessively overpark shall mean that the proposed transferees parking will violate local parking restrictions or will interfere with other tenants occupying the Building or the Project), (iv) the proposed transferee cannot demonstrate to Landlords reasonable satisfaction the management skills or experience necessary, in Landlords reasonable opinion, to be successful in the Premises, (v) the proposed transferee has a record of environmental contamination or their anticipated use of the Premises involves the generation, storage, use, sale, treatment, release or disposal of any Hazardous Materials, (vi) the proposed form of sublease, assignment or other occupancy agreement is unacceptable (unacceptable form of sublease, assignment or other occupancy agreement shall mean that the content and format of the form are not consistent with the terms of this Lease or the CC&Rs or are not consistent with the terms and requirements of Landlords loan documents for the Building), (vii) the proposed transferee is a governmental entity or agency or non-profit entity, (viii) the rent to be charged by Tenant to such transferee is less than eighty percent (80%) of the total rent then being offered by Landlord or its affiliates for other available space at the Project; or (ix) the proposed transferee is a party with whom Landlord has been, within the prior six (6) months, negotiating to lease space at the Project. Any attempted assignment, subletting, transfer or encumbrance by Tenant in violation of the terms and covenants of this Paragraph 14.1 shall be void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant is a corporation, so long as Tenant is publicly traded on a major over-the-counter stock exchange, the ordinary transfer of shares over the counter shall be deemed not to be a transfer for purposes of this Paragraph 14. In addition, the terms of this Paragraph 14 shall not apply to the infusion of additional equity capital in Tenant or an initial public offering of equity securities of Tenant under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, which results in Tenants stock being traded on a national securities exchange, including, but not limited to, the NYSE, the NASDAQ Stock Market or the NASDAQ Small Cap Market System.
14.2 Landlords Alternatives. Except in the event of a Permitted Transfer (which shall not be subject to the provisions of this Paragraph 14.2), within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of the information specified in Paragraph 14.1, Landlord shall, by written notice to Tenant, elect: (i) if (A) the proposed transfer is a sublease of the entire Premises, then to terminate this Lease as of the commencement date stated in the proposed sublease with respect to all of the Premises Tenant proposes to sublease; (B) the proposed transfer is a sublease that would (1) result in thirty percent (30%) or more of the Premises being subject to the sublease, or (2) be for a term of more than thirty percent (30%) of the then-remaining Lease Term, to recapture the portion of the Premises to be sublet effective as of the commencement date stated in the proposed sublease; or (C) the proposed transfer is an assignment of Tenants interest in the Lease, then to terminate this Lease as of the commencement date stated in the proposed assignment; (ii) to consent to the transfer by Tenant; or (iii) to refuse its consent to the transfer. If Landlord proceeds under clause (ii) of this Paragraph 14.2 and consents to the transfer, Tenant may thereafter enter into a valid sublet of the Premises or portion thereof, upon the terms and conditions and with the proposed transferee set forth in the information furnished by Tenant to Landlord pursuant to Paragraph 14.1, subject, however, to the requirements of Paragraph 14.4.
14.3 Permitted Transfer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and subject to Paragraph 6.1 of this Lease regarding the use of the Premises and Paragraph 6.6, Landlords prior written consent shall not be required for an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of the entire Premises to any of the following transferees (each such transferee being a Permitted Transferee): (i) an Affiliate (hereafter defined in this Paragraph 14.3) of Tenant; (ii) a corporation or other valid entity into which Tenant merges or consolidates; and (iii) a transferee that purchases all of, or at least ninety percent (90%) of, Tenants assets or equity interests. The assignment of this Lease to or a sublease of the entire Premises to a Permitted Transferee shall be subject to the following conditions: (A) Tenant shall give Landlord prior written notice of the name of any such assignee or subtenant (provided that, if prohibited by legally binding confidentiality agreement or by Applicable Laws in connection with a proposed purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization, then Tenant shall give Landlord written notice within ten (10) days after the effective date of the proposed purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization); (B) any assignee shall assume, in writing, for the benefit of Landlord all of Tenants obligations under this Lease, and any subtenant shall agree, in writing, for the benefit of Landlord that such sublease is subject to and subordinate to this Lease; (C) the Tenant shall not be released from any obligations under this Lease; and (D) the Permitted Transferee shall have a tangible net worth which is at least equal to Tenants tangible net worth on the Effective Date. The term Affiliate as used herein shall mean any partnership, limited liability company, or corporation, which directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with another partnership, limited liability company, or corporation. The term control, as used in the immediately preceding sentence shall mean with respect to a corporation the right to exercise, directly or indirectly, more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting rights attributable to the controlled corporation, and, with respect to any partnership or, the possession, directly or indirectly, of the power to direct or cause the direction of the management or policies of the controlled partnership or limited liability company, as applicable.
14.4 No Release: Excess Rent. No assignment, subletting or other transfer, whether consented to by Landlord or not, or permitted hereunder, shall relieve Tenant of its liability under this Lease. If an event of default occurs while the Premises or any part thereof are assigned, sublet or otherwise transferred, then Landlord, in addition to any other remedies herein provided, or provided by law, may collect directly from such assignee, sublessee or transferee all rents payable to Tenant and apply such rent against any sums due Landlord hereunder. No such collection shall be construed to constitute a novation or a release of Tenant from the further performance of Tenants obligations hereunder. Except with respect to a Permitted Transfer, if Tenant assigns or otherwise transfers this Lease or sublets the Premises for an amount in excess of the rent called for by this Lease, fifty percent (50%) of the Excess Consideration (as defined below) shall be paid to Landlord within ten (10) business days following receipt by Tenant. As used herein, Excess Consideration means all rents or other sums received by Tenant under any such assignment, sublease or other transfer which are in excess of the rents and other sums payable by Tenant under this Lease after deduction therefrom for reasonable costs actually paid by Tenant for additional improvements installed in the portion of the Premises subject to such assignment, sublease or other transfer by Tenant at Tenants sole cost and expense for the specific assignee, sublessee or other transfer in question and reasonable leasing commissions and reasonable legal fees paid by Tenant in connection with such assignment, sublease or other transfer, without deduction for carrying costs due to vacancy or otherwise. For the purposes of determining the Excess Consideration payable to Landlord pursuant to Paragraph 14.2, if a portion of the Premises is sublet, the pro rata share of the rent attributable to such partial area of the Premises shall be determined by Landlord by dividing the rent payable by Tenant hereunder by the total square footage of the Premises and multiplying the resulting quotient (the per square foot rent) by the number of square feet of the Premises which are sublet. Landlord may hire outside consultants to review the transfer documents and information. Tenant shall pay Landlord an administrative fee of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) and in addition shall reimburse Landlord for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with any request for consent under this Paragraph (even if consent is denied or the request is withdrawn) and such reimbursement shall include the allocated cost of Landlords or its management companys staff plus all out-of-pocket expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees, .on demand. Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided that neither the Tenant nor the proposed transferee requests any changes to this Lease or Landlords standard form of consent (other than minor and immaterial changes) in connection with the proposed transfer, the attorneys fees payable by Tenant pursuant to this Paragraph 14 shall not exceed $1,500.00 for any proposed transfer.
15.1 Default. Any of the following shall constitute a default by Tenant under this Lease:
15.1.1 Tenants failure to (i) pay rent or any other charge under this Lease within five (5) days following written notice that such payment is past due (provided, however, that if any such notice shall be given more than once during the twelve (12) month period commencing with the date of such notice, the second and any subsequent failure to pay rent or any other charge under this Lease within five (5) days following the date such payment is due during such twelve (12) month period shall be a default, without notice) or (ii) cure or remove any lien pursuant to Paragraph 19 within the time period set forth therein or (iii) except as provided in Paragraphs 15.1.2 through 15.1.4, comply with any other term or condition within thirty (30) days following written notice from Landlord specifying the noncompliance. If any failure described in clause (iii) of the immediately preceding sentence cannot be cured within the thirty (30)-day period, this provision shall be deemed complied with so long as Tenant commences correction within such period and thereafter proceeds in good faith and with reasonable diligence to effect the remedy as soon as practicable, in no event to exceed sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from Landlord.
15.1.2 Tenants insolvency; assignment for the benefit of its creditors; Tenants voluntary petition in bankruptcy or adjudication as bankrupt; attachment of or the levying of execution on the leasehold interest and failure of Tenant to secure discharge of the attachment or release of the levy of execution within thirty (30) days; or the appointment of a receiver for Tenants properties.
15.1.3 Abandonment of the Premises by Tenant.
15.1.4 Failure of Tenant to deliver the documents or agreements required under Paragraphs 18.1 and/or 18.3 within the relevant time period(s) specified therein.
15.2 Remedies. Upon a default under Paragraph 15.1 above, Landlord shall have the following remedies, in addition to all other rights and remedies provided by law or otherwise provided in this Lease, to which Landlord may resort cumulatively or in the alternative:
15.2.1 Landlord may continue this Lease in full force and effect, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as long as Landlord does not terminate this Lease, and Landlord shall have the right to collect Rent when due.
15.2.2 Landlord may terminate Tenants right to possession of the Premises at any time by giving written notice to that effect, and relet the Premises or any part thereof. Tenant shall be liable immediately to Landlord for all costs Landlord incurs in reletting the Premises or any part thereof, including, without limitation, brokers commissions, expenses of cleaning and redecorating the Premises required by the reletting and like costs. Reletting may be for a period shorter or longer than the remaining term of this Lease. No act by Landlord other than giving written notice to Tenant shall terminate this Lease. Acts of maintenance, efforts to relet the Premises or the appointment of a receiver on Landlords initiative to protect Landlords interest under this Lease shall not constitute a termination of Tenants right to possession. On termination, Landlord has the right to remove all Tenants personal property and store the same at Tenants cost and to recover from Tenant as damages:
(i) The worth at the time of award of unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable which had been earned at the time of termination; plus
(ii) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable which would have been payable after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant prove could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iii) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable for the balance of the Lease Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; plus
(iv) Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenants failure to perform Tenants obligations under this Lease, or which, in the ordinary course of things, would be likely to result therefrom, including, without limitation, any costs or expenses incurred by Landlord: (A) in retaking possession of the Premises; (8) in maintaining, repairing, preserving, restoring, replacing, cleaning, altering or rehabilitating the Premises or any portion thereof, including such acts for reletting to a new tenant or tenants; (C) for leasing commissions; or (D) for any other costs necessary or appropriate to relet the Premises; plus
(v) At Landlords election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by the laws of the State of California.
The worth at the time of award of the amounts referred to in Paragraphs 15.2.2(i) and 15.2.2(ii) is computed by allowing interest at the interest rate as provided in Paragraph 26.2 on the unpaid rent and other sums due and payable from the termination date through the date of award. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in Paragraph 15.2.2(iii) is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%). Tenant waives redemption or relief from forfeiture under California Code of Civil Procedure §1174 and §1179, or under any other present or future law in the event Tenant is evicted or Landlord takes possession of the Premises by reason of any default of Tenant hereunder.
15.2.3 Landlord may, with or without terminating this Lease, re-enter the Premises and remove all persons and property from the Premises; such property may be removed and stored in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of and for the account of Tenant. No re-entry or taking possession of the Premises by Landlord pursuant to this Paragraph 15.2 shall be construed as an election to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention is given to Tenant.
15.2.4 Tenant acknowledges that certain benefits or concessions provided by Landlord are conditioned upon Tenants timely, fully and faithful performance of each and every obligation, covenant, representation and warranty of this Lease throughout the entire term of this Lease, even though such benefits or concessions may be realized by Tenant over less than the entire term of this Lease. Accordingly, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the event Landlord brings an action against Tenant for default under this Lease, Landlord shall become immediately entitled to receive from Tenant as Additional Rent the amount of all such benefits and concessions allocable to the balance of the Lease term on a pro rata basis, i.e., an amount equal to the product of (x) the sum of (a) any amounts theretofore or thereafter paid by Landlord to Tenant or to any third party, or any amounts credited to Tenant or to any third party, for of on account of (i) any moving, tenant improvement, decorating or other allowance or credit granted to Tenant, (ii) any real estate commission paid on account of this Lease, and (iii) any expenses or costs related to assumption by Landlord of any other lease, plus (b) an amount equal to the difference between the Base Rent specified in this Lease and rent for any period for which this Lease provides any lesser amount including zero or nominal rent, including for any period of early occupancy of the Premises prior to the Commencement Date of this Lease, plus (c) the amount spent by Landlord for any tenant improvements to the Premises; multiplied by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days of the term of this Lease remaining between the date of default and the expiration of the term of this Lease, and the denominator of which is the total number of days for the term of this Lease.
15.3.1 The commencement of a bankruptcy action or liquidation action or reorganization action or insolvency action or an assignment of or by Tenant for the benefit of creditors, or any similar action undertaken by Tenant, or the insolvency of Tenant, shall, at Landlords option. constitute a breach of this Lease by Tenant. If the trustee or receiver appointed to serve during a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization, insolvency or similar action elects to reject Tenants unexpired Lease, the trustee or receiver shall notify Landlord in writing of its election within thirty (30) days after an order for relief in a liquidation action or within thirty (30) days after the commencement of any action.
15.3.2 Within thirty (30) days after court approval of the assumption of this Lease, the trustee or receiver shall cure (or provide adequate assurance to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord that the trustee or receiver shall cure) any and all previous defaults under the unexpired Lease and shall compensate Landlord for all actual pecuniary loss resulting from Tenants breach of this Lease, including any attorneys fees and costs incurred by Landlord as a result of such breach and/or the bankruptcy proceedings instituted by or against Tenant, and shall provide adequate assurance of future performance under the Lease to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Adequate assurance of future performance, as used herein, includes, but shall not be limited to (i) assurance of source and payment of Rent and other consideration due under this Lease and (ii) assurance that the assumption or assignment of this Lease will not breach any provision, such as radius, location, use or exclusivity provisions in any other lease of space within the Project.
15.3.3 Nothing contained in this Paragraph 15.3 shall affect the right of Landlord to refuse to accept an assignment upon commencement of or in connection with a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization or insolvency action or an assignment of Tenant for the benefit of creditors or other similar act. Nothing contained in this Lease shall be construed as giving or granting or creating equity in the Premises to Tenant. In no event shall the leasehold estate under this Lease, or any interest therein, be assigned by voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding without the prior written consent of Landlord. In no event shall this Lease or any rights or privileges hereunder be an asset of Tenant under any bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization proceedings.
15.4 No Bar of Action(s). Landlord may sue periodically to recover damages during the period corresponding to the remainder of the Lease Term, and no action for damages shall bar a later action for damages subsequently accruing.
15.5 Landlord Cure. If Tenant fails to perform any obligation under this Lease, Landlord shall have the option to do so after five (5) days written notice to Tenant. All of Landlords expenditures to correct the default shall be reimbursed by Tenant on demand together with interest at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 26.2 from the date of expenditure until repaid. Such action by Landlord shall not waive any other remedies available to Landlord because of the default.
15.6 No Exclusion. The foregoing remedies shall be in addition to and shall not exclude any other remedy available to Landlord at law or in equity.
Landlord shall be in default under this Lease if it shall fail to comply with any term, provision or covenant of this Lease and shall not cure such failure within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof to Landlord, unless such cure cannot reasonably be accomplished within such thirty (30)-day period, in which event Landlord shall have such additional time as is reasonably necessary to accomplish such cure provided Landlord promptly commences and diligently prosecutes such cure to completion.
Surrender at Expiration or Termination.
17.1 Surrender. On expiration or early termination of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver all keys to Landlord, have final utility readings made and pay all utility accounts current on the date of move out, and surrender the Premises clean and free of debris inside and out, with all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems required to be maintained by Tenant pursuant to Paragraph 7.3 above in good operating condition, all of Tenants signage removed and defacement corrected, all repairs called for under this Lease completed, all interior walls repaired and repainted if marked or damaged, all carpets steam cleaned, all broken, marred or nonconforming acoustical ceiling tiles replaced, all windows washed, the plumbing and electrical systems and lighting required to be maintained by Tenant pursuant to Paragraph 7.3 above in good order and repair, including replacement of any burned out or broken light bulb or ballasts, and all floors cleaned, all to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Also prior to the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease Term, Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, remove all Tenants personal property from the Premises. The Premises shall be delivered broom clean and in good condition and repair, subject only to damage by casualty, the provisions of Paragraphs 6.4. 6.5. 6.6 and 17.2 and depreciation and wear from ordinary use. Tenant shall remove all of its furnishings and trade fixtures that remain its property and restore all damage resulting from such removal. Failure to remove said property shall be an abandonment of same, and Landlord may remove and/or dispose of it in any manner permitted under law without liability, and Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for any costs of removal, restoration, transportation to storage, storage and/or disposal, plus an administrative fee of ten percent (10%), together with interest on all such expenses and fees at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 26.2. The provisions of this Paragraph 17.1 (including, without limitation, all provisions referenced herein) shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
17.2 Removal of Hazardous Materials. Subject to Paragraph 6.6.8 above, upon expiration of this Lease or sooner termination of this Lease for any reason, Tenant shall (i) remove all Hazardous Materials and facilities used for the storage or handling of Hazardous Materials from the Premises and restore the affected areas by repairing any damage caused by the installation or removal of the facilities and (ii) take any and all actions necessary to close all Hazardous Materials permits and approvals obtained by or on behalf of Tenant for the Premises, if any, with all government and other regulatory agencies having jurisdiction over the Project. Following such removal, if required, Tenant shall certify in writing to Landlord that all such removal is complete. Until such time as Tenant has fulfilled all the requirements of this Paragraph 17.2 (in addition to any other requirements), Landlord may treat Tenant as a holdover Tenant as provided below; provided, however, that any such continuation of this Lease shall not relieve Tenant of its obligations under this Paragraph 17.2.
17.3 Failure to Vacate. If Tenant fails to vacate the Premises when required and holds over without Landlords prior written consent, Landlord may elect either (i) to treat Tenant as a tenant from month to month, subject to all provisions of this Lease except the provision for Lease Term and at a rental rate equal to (A) one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Base Rent plus all Additional Rent payable by Tenant immediately preceding the scheduled expiration of the Lease Term during the first thirty (30) days of such holding over; and (B) commencing as of the thirty-first (31st) day of such holding over, twice the Base Rent plus all Additional Rent payable by Tenant immediately preceding the scheduled expiration of the Lease Term, or (ii) to treat Tenant as a tenant at sufferance, eject Tenant from the Premises and recover damages caused by wrongful holdover including, without limitation, as set forth in Paragraph 17.4. Failure of Tenant to remove furniture, furnishings, cabling or other telecommunications equipment, or trade fixtures which Tenant is required to remove under this Lease, or to comply fully with the provisions of Paragraph 17.2, shall constitute a failure to vacate to which this Paragraph 17.3 shall apply if such property not removed substantially interferes with occupancy of the Premises by another tenant or with occupancy by Landlord for any purpose including preparation for a new tenant. If a month-to-month tenancy results from a holdover by Tenant under this Paragraph 17.3, the tenancy shall be terminable by either Landlord or Tenant upon thirty (30) days prior written notice from by one party to the other party. Tenant waives any notice that would otherwise be provided by law with respect to a month-to-month tenancy.
17.4 Indemnification. Tenant acknowledges that, if Tenant holds over without Landlords consent as provided above, such holding over may compromise or otherwise affect Landlords ability to enter into new leases with prospective tenants regarding the Premises and/or the Building. Therefore, if Tenant fails to surrender the Premises within thirty (30) days after Landlord notifies Tenant that Landlord has entered into a lease or other agreement for all or any portion of the Premises or has received a bona fide offer to lease, license or otherwise use all or any portion of the Premises, and that Landlord will be unable to deliver possession, or perform improvements, due to Tenants holdover, then, in addition to any other liabilities to Landlord accruing therefrom, Tenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from any and all obligations, losses, claims, actions, causes of action, liabilities, penalties, damages (including consequential and punitive damages), costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys and consultants fees and expense) resulting from such failure including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded upon such failure to surrender and any lost profits to Landlord resulting therefrom. The provisions of this Paragraph 17.4 are in addition to, and do not affect, Landlords right to re-entry or other rights hereunder or provided by law. Tenants obligations under this Paragraph 17.4 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
Mortgage or Sale by Landlord; Estoppel Certificates.
18.1 Priority. This Lease is subject and subordinate to mortgages and deeds of trust (collectively Encumbrances) which may now affect the Premises or the parcel on which the Building or the Project are located. to the CC&Rs and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof (subject to Paragraph 6.1 above); provided, however. if the holder or holders of any such Encumbrance (Holder) shall require that this Lease be prior and superior thereto, Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days after written request from Landlord, execute, have acknowledged and deliver such commercially reasonable documents or instruments, which Landlord or Holder deems necessary or desirable for such purposes. Landlord shall have the right to cause this Lease to be and become and remain subject and subordinate to any and all Encumbrances which may hereafter be executed covering the Premises or the parcel on which the Building or the Project are located, or any renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements or extensions thereof, for the full amount of all advances made or to be made thereunder and without regard to the time or character of such advances, together with interest thereon at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 26.2 and subject to all the terms and provisions thereof; provided only, that in the event of termination of any such lease or upon the foreclosure of any such mortgage or deed of trust, so long as Tenant is not in default, Holder agrees to recognize Tenants rights under this Lease as long as Tenant shall pay the Rent and observe and perform all the provisions of this Lease to be observed and performed by Tenant. Within ten (10) business days after Landlords written request, Tenant shall execute such commercially reasonable documents required by Landlord or the Holder to make this Lease subordinate to any lien of the Encumbrance. If Tenant fails to do so, it shall be in default under this Lease and, in addition to all of Landlords other rights and remedies for such default, it shall be deemed that this Lease is subordinated.
18.2 Attornment. If the Building is sold as a result of foreclosure of any Encumbrance thereon or otherwise transferred by Landlord or any successor, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser or transferee, and the transferor shall have no further liability hereunder.
18.3 Estoppel Certificate. Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days following written request by Landlord, execute and deliver to Landlord commercially reasonable estoppel certificates (or similar documents), in the form prepared by Landlord (i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying that this Lease, as so modified, is in full force and effect and the date to which the rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, and (ii) acknowledging that there are not, to Tenants knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of Landlord, or, if there are uncured defaults on the part of the Landlord, stating the nature of such uncured defaults, and
(i) evidencing the status of the Lease as may be required either by a lender making a loan to Landlord to be secured by deed of trust or mortgage covering the Building and/or the parcel on which the Building is located, or a purchaser of the Building and/or the parcel on which the Building is located from Landlord. Tenants failure to deliver an estoppel certificate within ten (10) business days after delivery of Landlord s written request therefor shall be conclusive upon Tenant (A) that this Lease is in full force and effect, without modification except as may be represented by Landlord, (B) that there are now no uncured defaults in Landlords performance and (C) that no rent has been paid in advance (other than as may be expressly required by this Lease).
Tenant shall keep the Premises, the Building, and the Project free from any liens arising out of any work performed, materials furnished or obligations incurred by or on behalf of Tenant and shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord and Landlords Agents harmless from all claims, costs and liabilities, including attorneys fees and costs, in connection with or arising out of any such lien or claim of lien. Tenant shall cause any such lien imposed to be released of record by payment or posting of a proper bond acceptable to Landlord within ten (10) days after written request by Landlord. Tenant shall give Landlord written notice of Tenants intention to perform work on the Premises, which might result in any claim of lien at least twenty (20) days prior to the commencement of such work to enable Landlord to post and record a Notice of Nonresponsibility. If Tenant fails to so remove any such lien within the prescribed ten (10) day period, then Landlord may do so at Tenants expense and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for such amounts upon demand. Such reimbursement shall include all costs incurred by Landlord including Landlords reasonable attorneys fees with interest thereon at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 26.2.
Attorneys Fees; Waiver of Jury Trial.
In the event that any party shall bring an action to enforce its rights under this Lease, the prevailing party in any such proceeding shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys, witness and expert fees and costs of the proceeding, including any appeal thereof and in any proceedings in bankruptcy. For purposes hereof, the reasonable fees of Landlords in-house attorneys or Tenants in-house attorneys, as the case may be, who perform services in connection with any such enforcement action are recoverable, and shall be based on the fees regularly charged by private attorneys with the equivalent number of years of experience in the relevant subject matter area of the law, in law firms in the City of San Jose, California with approximately the same number of attorneys as are employed by Landlords Law Department or Tenants Law Department, as the case may be. The provisions of this Paragraph 20 are separate and severable and shall survive a judgment on this Lease. To the extent allowed by Applicable Law, disputes between the parties which are to be litigated shall be tried before a judge without a jury.
Limitation on Liability; Transfer by Landlord.
21.1 Property and Assets. Landlord shall never be personally liable under this Lease; Tenant shall look solely to Landlords interest in the Building and the parcel on which the Building is located for any recovery of damages for any breach by Landlord of this Lease, or any recovery of any judgment against Landlord. For purposes of the foregoing, Landlords interest in the Building shall include any insurance proceeds paid to Landlord and not applied to restoration or repair. None of the members comprising Landlord (whether partners, members, shareholders, officers, directors, trustees, employees, beneficiaries or otherwise) shall ever be personally liable for any such judgment. There shall be no levy of execution against any assets of Landlord, other than the Building and the parcel on which the Building is located, or the assets of such members on account of any liability of Landlord hereunder. Tenant hereby waives any right of recovery or satisfaction of any judgment against Landlord or its members, except as to Landlords interest in the Building and the parcel on which the Building is located as herein specified. In no case shall Landlord be liable to Tenant hereunder for any lost profits, damage to business, or any form of special, indirect or consequential damages.
21.2 Transfer by Landlord. All obligations of Landlord hereunder will be binding upon Landlord only during the period of its possession of the Premises and not thereafter. The term Landlord shall mean only the owner of the Premises for the time being, and if such owner transfers its interest in the Premises, such owner shall thereupon be released and discharged from all covenants and obligations of the Landlord thereafter accruing, but such covenants and obligations shall be binding during the Lease Term upon each new owner for the duration of each owners ownership.
21.3 Other Occupants. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for loss or damages arising out of the acts or inaction of other tenants or occupants.
Landlords Right to Perform Tenants Covenants.
If Tenant shall at any time fail to make any payment or perform any other act on its part to be made or performed under this Lease and such failure continues beyond any applicable notice and cure period set forth herein, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to and without waiving or releasing Tenant from any obligation of Tenant under this Lease, upon written notice to Tenant, make such payment or perform such other act to the extent Landlord may deem desirable, and in connection therewith, pay expenses and employ counsel. All sums so paid by Landlord and all penalties, interest and costs in connection therewith shall be due and payable by Tenant within three (3) business days after any such payment by Landlord, together with interest thereon at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 26.2 from such date to the date of payment by Tenant to Landlord, plus collection costs and reasonable attorneys fees. Landlord shall have the same rights and remedies for the nonpayment thereof as in the case of default in the payment of Rent beyond any applicable notice and cure period.
23. Mortgagee Protection.
If Landlord defaults under this Lease, Tenant will notify any beneficiary of a deed of trust or mortgagee of a mortgage covering the Building and/or the parcel on which the Building is located for which Landlord has provided Tenant (in writing) with a name and address, and offer such beneficiary or mortgagee a reasonable opportunity to cure the default, including time to obtain possession of the Building and/or the parcel on which the Building is located by power of sale or a judicial foreclosure, if such should prove necessary to effect a cure. Any such beneficiary or mortgagee which succeeds to the interest of Landlord hereunder, shall not be (i) liable for any act or omission of any prior Landlord (including Landlord) unless such act or omission is of a continuing nature; or (ii) subject to any offsets or defenses which Tenant might have against any prior Landlord (including Landlord); or (iii) bound by any Rent which Tenant might have paid in advance to any prior Landlord (including Landlord) in excess of one (1) months Rent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, the Holder of any Encumbrance or the purchaser upon the foreclosure of any of Encumbrance shall be an intended third party beneficiary of this Section 23.
Real Estate Brokers; Finders.
Landlord and Tenant warrant and represent each to the other that it has had no dealings with any real estate broker or agent in connection with the negotiation of this Lease, except for Newmark Cornish & Carey (Landlords Broker), which represents Landlord and CBRE, Inc. (Tenants Broker), which represents Tenant. and that it knows of no other real estate broker or agent who is or might be entitled to a commission in connection with this Lease. Landlord shall pay Landlords Broker and Tenants Broker a commission in connection with Landlord and Tenant entering into this Lease, which commission shall be paid pursuant to a separate agreement between Landlord and such broker. Landlord and Tenant agree to indemnify, defend and hold each other and their respective agents harmless from and against any and all liabilities or expenses, including attorneys fees and costs, arising out of or in connection with claims made by any broker or individual against the indemnified party for commissions or fees in connection with the execution of this Lease and resulting from the actions of the indemnifying party.
This Lease specifically is contingent upon the termination of that certain lease dated August 18, 2014 (as amended, the Prior Tenant Lease), by and between Landlord and Lunera Lighting, Inc., a Delaware corporation (Prior Tenant) relating to the Premises. Landlord currently is negotiating the terms of an agreement with Prior Tenant to terminate the Prior Tenant Lease (the Prior Tenant Termination Agreement) with respect to the Premises. If Landlord fails to enter into the Prior Tenant Termination Agreement with Prior Tenant on or before ten (10) days following the date this Lease (the Contingency Date), executed by Tenant, together with all prepaid rental and security deposits required hereunder, if any, delivered to Landlord, then either party may terminate this Lease by providing written notice thereof to the other party on or before the earlier of (i) five (5) business days after the Contingency Date; or (ii) the date on which Landlord and Prior Tenant enter into the Prior Tenant Termination Agreement.
