Box 562, Exton, Pennsylvania 19341, and ISOLAGEN, INC., a Delaware corporation (Tenant), with its office at 2500 Wilcrest, 5th Floor, Houston, TX 77042.
LEASED SPACE AND PURPOSE.
(a) Landlord hereby rents to Tenant 86,500 rentable square feet of space within the building located at 405 Eagleview Boulevard (Building), including the parcel of land known as Lot 10 (the Land) within the center (Center or Eagleview Corporate Center) known as Eagleview Corporate Center, Route 100, Exton, Uwchlan Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The Building and Land are sometimes referred to collectively as the Leased Space. The location of the Leased Space and the Building is shown on the plan attached hereto as Exhibit A. The Leased Space includes all fixtures, improvements, additions and other property installed therein at the Commencement Date (hereafter defined), or at any time during the term of this Lease (other than Tenants movable personal property and trade fixtures), together with the Land and, in common with others, all public portions of the Center.
(b) The Leased Space shall be used and occupied as a mixed-use facility consisting of general office space, warehouse space and laboratory space in connection with Tenants Business (hereafter defined) and for no other purpose. For purposes hereof, Tenants Business shall be deemed to be the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical products and research activities in connection therewith.
(c) Tenant accepts the Leased Space in its current condition, as is.
(d) This Lease is contingent upon Landlords entering into a termination agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord in its sole discretion with Viropharma, Inc., the current tenant of the Leased Space. Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing when this condition has been satisfied; in the absence of Tenants receipt of such notice on or before the Commencement Date, this Lease shall be null and void and neither party shall have any further obligation to the other hereunder.
(a) The term of this Lease and Tenants obligation to pay rent hereunder shall commence upon April 1, 2005 (Commencement Date).
(b) The term (Term) of this Lease shall end on March 31, 2013 unless sooner terminated or renewed in accordance with this Lease. The portion of the term ending on March 31, 2008 is sometimes referred to herein as Initial Period.
(c) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Lease to the contrary, on or before March 31, 2007, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord written notice of whether or not Tenant desires to accelerate the expiration date of the Term to the end of the Initial Period, being March 31, 2008, or continue in occupancy until the originally scheduled expiration date, March 31, 2013, in which latter event the Term of this Lease shall continue as originally scheduled until March 31, 2013. In the absence of any notice, Landlord shall issue written notice to Tenant that Landlord has not received the required notice from Tenant, and unless within five (5) days thereafter, Tenant by written notice to Landlord reinstates the Lease and the Term until March 31, 2013, Tenant shall be deemed to have elected to accelerate the expiration date to March 31, 2008, and shall vacate the Premises on such date.
(i) Tenants Proportionate Share is 100%.
(ii) Real Estate Taxes shall mean all taxes and assessments levied, assessed or imposed at any time by any governmental authority upon or against the Building and the land upon which the Building is situate, and also any tax or assessment levied, assessed or imposed at any time by any governmental authority in connection with the receipt of income or rents from said Building or land to the extent that the same shall be in lieu of (and/or in lieu of an increase in) all or a portion of any of the aforesaid taxes or assessments upon or against the said Building and/or land. If, however, any assessment included within Real Estate Taxes is payable in installments extending beyond the term of this Lease, Tenant shall only be obligated to pay those installments coming due during the term of this Lease. Real Estate Taxes shall not include any penalty or interest as a result of Landlords late payment. Landlord further agrees to make payment of Real Estate Taxes in a timely manner so as to take advantage of any applicable discount and to provide to Tenant copies of receipts for paid Real Estate Taxes not later than thirty (30) days after the Real Estate Taxes are due. Failure of Landlord to provide such receipts to Tenant shall permit Tenant to suspend payment of Tenants Proportionate Share of Real Estate Taxes until such receipts are furnished to Tenant.
At any time and from time to time during the term of this Lease, Tenant, at its expense, shall have the right to institute proceedings challenging the amount of Real Estate Taxes. Landlord agrees to reasonably cooperate with Tenant in connection therewith. Any refund awarded shall be reimbursed first to each party in proportion to the expenses incurred by such party in prosecuting such appeal, with any balance thereof next being refunded to Tenant in an amount equal to Tenants Proportionate Share of (A) the balance of such award remaining after the foregoing cost reimbursements (B) multiplied by a fraction (1) the numerator of which shall be the number of days during the tax year for which the refund is awarded for which Tenant has paid Real Estate Taxes pursuant to this Lease and (2) the denominator of which is 365.
(iii) Operating Expenses shall mean that part of any and all expenses reasonably and actually incurred by Landlord in connection with its ownership, maintenance and
operation of the Building, the land upon which the Building is situate, excluding Real Estate Taxes and interest or amortization payments on any mortgage, but including, without limitation, electricity (other than as billed directly to tenants based on usage); insurance maintained on the Building in accordance herewith; all direct and indirect labor costs; a management fee for Landlords management of the relationships with contractors (other than the Association) providing yard and landscape maintenance, snow clearance and insurance required to be maintained hereunder if Landlord, upon request of Tenant, is able to place such insurance at more favorable premium rates than Tenant is able to obtain, which management fee shall not exceed four percent (4%) of the annual amount actually paid under such contracts (Management Fee); legal expenses; all repairs required to be performed by Landlord as provided for in this Lease; exterior, roof and structural decoration, repairs and maintenance; snow removal; building supplies; all charges for the exterior of the Building for electricity; the cost of operating an identification sign or signs for the Building; replacing of paving, curbs, walkways, directions or other signs; drainage; maintenance and monitoring of fire sprinkling systems (if any); the Buildings proportionate share of common expenses owed to the Eagleview Corporate Center Association or its successor or any other similar entity which owns and maintains the common areas of the Center (collectively, Association); and such other expenses as Landlord may deem necessary and proper in connection with the operation and maintenance of the exterior, roof and structure of the Building, excluding any costs which under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) are capital expenditures; provided, however, that Operating Expenses shall also include the annual amortization (over the anticipated useful life established in accordance with GAAP) of a capital improvement falling within any of the following categories: (i) a labor saving device or improvement which is intended to reduce or eliminate any other component of Operating Expenses; (ii) an installation or improvement required by reason of any law, ordinance or regulation, which requirement did not exist on the date of this Lease and is generally applicable to similar buildings; (iii) an installation or improvement which directly enhances safety of tenants in the Building or Center generally. Landlord shall have the right to bill Tenant directly for any items of Operating Expenses which can be attributed directly to Tenants use only.
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, Operating Expenses shall not include:
(A) any payments (such as salaries or fees) to the Landlords executive personnel or in-house site managers except for the Management Fee;
(B) depreciation or interest, except to the extent permitted above in connection with capital improvements;

(E) leasing commissions, brokers fees or legal fees incurred in connection with leases of space in the Building;
(F) legal fees that do not directly benefit Tenant or the Building (provided that legal fees incurred in connection with leases of space in the Building or in enforcing tenant obligations shall not be deemed to benefit the Building);
(G) costs to correct defective repairs or replacements hereinafter provided by or at the direction of Landlord;
(H) costs of repairs covered by valid warranties;
(I) expenses paid directly by a tenant for any reason (such as excessive utility use, direct utility consumption, damage for which such tenant is responsible);

(K) any repair or other work necessitated by condemnation, or by fire or other insured casualty in excess of applicable deductibles;
(L) any costs, fines and the like due to Landlords violation of any law, governmental rule or authority;
(M) refinancing costs;
(N) costs for any conversion of the heating system to gas heat except to the extent such conversion is undertaken in an effort to reduce Operating Expenses and the cost thereof is treated in the same manner as a capital improvement;
(O) costs paid to Landlord or its affiliates other than the Management Fee which exceed those reasonably charged in arms length transactions with third parties in the general area of the Building; and
(P) services, benefits or both provided to some tenants but not to Tenant.
(iv) The Base Rent for Adjustment Purposes shall mean, for the first year of the Term following the Initial Period beginning April 1, 2008, $1,119,310.00, and for each subsequent year during the five year period beginning April 1, 2008 and expiring March 31, 2013, the Minimum Annual Rent under this Lease in effect for the immediately preceding year.

(vii) The Comparison Index shall mean the CPI U for month of March immediately preceding the commencement of each year following the Initial Period.
(viii) The CPI Adjustment shall mean, for each year of the Term following the Initial Period, an increase in the Base Rent for Adjustment Purposes by the percentage increase in the Comparison Index over the Base Index, applicable to such year.
The Base Index and Comparison Index for each year of the Term following the Initial Period shall be:
Renewal Term Year
|4/1/08-3/31/09||March 2005||March 2008|
|4/1/09-3/31/10||March 2008||March 2009|
|4/1/10-3/31/11||March 2009||March 2010|
|4/1/11-3/31/12||March 2010||March 2011|
|4/1/12-3/31/13||March 2011||March 2012|
(b) Tenant shall pay Landlord the minimum annual rent (Minimum Annual Rent) during the Term in the amounts set forth below, which annual amount shall be paid in equal monthly installments as set forth below on the first day of each calendar month in advance. All rent shall be payable, in advance, and without prior notice or demand, at the address of Landlord set forth in the heading of this Lease or at such other place, or to such other person, as Landlord may from time to time direct in written notice to Tenant. During the Initial Period, Minimum Annual Rent shall be $778,500.00 per year, payable in monthly installments of $64,875.00 each. Thereafter, for each year of the Term following the Initial Period, Minimum Annual Rent shall increase to a sum equal to the Base Rent for Adjustment Purposes, increased by one half the CPI Adjustment, but in no event shall such Minimum Annual Rent be (1) less than the Base Rent for Adjustment Purposes for such year, or (2) during the first year of the five year period beginning April 1, 2008, greater than $1,297,500, or (3) during any subsequent year of such five year period, greater than $1,384,000. Upon the expiration of the Initial Period, and for each year of the Term thereafter, Landlord shall notify Tenant of the Minimum Annual Rent in effect for such year; in the event of any delay in calculation because of a delay in publication of the applicable Comparison Index, Tenant shall pay rent on account based upon the Minimum Annual Rent previously in effect, to be adjusted when the Comparison Index is published.
(c) In addition, Tenant shall pay to Landlord as Additional Rent in equal monthly installments one twelfth (1/12) of Tenants Proportionate Share of annual Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses, at the time of payment of each monthly installment of Minimum Annual Rent, based upon the most recent costs of Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes available.
For the period from the Commencement Date until the issuance of a statement pursuant to subparagraph 3(d) below, such monthly installment shall be equal to $26,742.92.
(d) Within ninety (90) days of the expiration of each calendar year Landlord shall furnish Tenant with a written statement of the actual Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes incurred for such year itemizing the expenses claimed by Landlord in reasonable detail. Within ten (10) days of the rendition of such statement, Tenant shall pay any amounts in excess of those collected pursuant to the payments on account of Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses pursuant to paragraph 3(c) hereof, and any overpayments shall be credited against the next installment(s) of rent due under this Lease or, at Tenants option, refunded to Tenant. In the event the first and/or last years of the Term of this Lease shall not be full calendar years, then Tenants obligation for Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes attributable to such years shall be pro rated. Tenant may, at its own cost and expense, after full payment of all sums due and owing, audit Landlords books and records not more than once each year within sixty (60) days after Landlords delivery of its annual statement of Operating Expenses, which books and records shall be maintained in accordance with GAAP. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any said review of Landlords books and records reveals that any item(s) were incorrectly included in Operating Expenses, Tenant shall have the right to inspect Landlords books and records with respect to such items for each prior lease year and an adjustment, if any, shall be made in accordance herewith. If Tenants audit determines that Landlords total charges for Operating Expenses or Real Estate Taxes for a given lease year exceed by more than 5% the total amount properly chargeable to Tenant under this Lease for such year, Landlord, in addition to reimbursing Tenant such excess amount, shall pay Tenant an amount equal to the cost of the audit.
(e) On or before the Commencement Date, Tenant shall establish with a commercial bank approved by Landlord (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), an interest bearing account, into which Tenant shall deposit the sum of $3,298,245 (representing Minimum Annual Rent and estimated Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes for the Initial Period) (the Rent Account). Tenant shall instruct the bank in which the Rent Account is established (the Rent Bank) that there shall be wired into Landlords account pursuant to wiring instructions issued by Landlord the sum of $91,618 on the first day of each month beginning on the Commencement Date through and including March 1, 2008, and that such instructions shall be irrevocable absent written instructions (1) from Landlord alone with respect to either (A) an assignment of this Lease and the rights to the Rent Account, instructing the Rent Bank to make payments to Landlords assignee, or (B) a request for payment of the balance remaining in the Rent Account, if such request is made after the occurrence of an Event of Default, and such request is accompanied by certification from Landlord that a material Event of Default has occurred, notice of the Event of Default has been properly delivered to Tenant, the grace or notice period required under the Lease and stated in the notice of the default has expired, and the Event of Default has not been cured; or (2) with respect to any other instructions modifying the amount or timing of payment, by Landlord and Tenant jointly. Landlord shall send to Tenant in the manner for delivering notices under this Lease a copy of the request, certification and notice of the Event of Default attached to the certification referred to in clause (B) of the preceding sentence when it is sent or delivered to the Rent Bank. Such disbursements shall be credited
against Tenants rent obligations as they come due, and in the event any additional sums are due and owing from Tenant to Landlord, by reason of annual Operating Expense or Real Estate Tax adjustments, or otherwise, the same shall be paid directly by Tenant to Landlord as billed. Tenant hereby grants to Landlord a security interest in the Rent Account, as security for Tenants performance of all of its obligations under this Lease, and Tenant shall execute (and cause the Rent Bank to execute) a control agreement and such further documents and instruments reasonable or necessary to perfect such security interest in favor of Landlord, having priority over any claims that may be made by any other party (including those of the Rent Bank). If this Lease terminates pursuant to Section 18(e) or 19, the foregoing security interest shall terminate upon Tenant satisfying any accrued and unpaid rent obligations, and the balance in the Rent Account shall be returned to Tenant. Accrued interest on the Rent Account shall be disbursed to Tenant periodically in accordance with the rules established by the Rent Bank for disbursing interest from similar accounts.
Tenant shall pay to Landlord as Additional Rent (in addition to sums payable pursuant to paragraphs 3 (c) and 3(d)) the following:
(a) Expenses Incurred by Landlord as a Result of Tenants Default. All sums which may become due by reason of Tenants failure to comply with any of the terms, conditions and covenants of this Lease to be kept and observed by Tenant, and any and all damages, costs and expenses (including without limitation thereto reasonable attorneys fees) which Landlord may suffer or incur by reason of any default of Tenant and any damage to the Building or the real estate of which the Building is a part caused by any negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or violation of Tenants covenants in Section 5(a) below, together with interest to the date of payment (whether before or after entry of judgment and issuance of execution thereon) at a rate equal to five percent (5%) above the prime interest rate (or similar rate if the prime interest rate is no longer published) of Wachovia Bank or its successor, in effect on the date during the period said payment is due (Default Rate), which shall continue to accrue interest at the Default Rate after entry of judgment and issuance of execution thereon until paid in full.
(b) Use and Occupancy Taxes. All use and occupancy taxes imposed by any governmental body allocable to the Leased Space.
(c) Utilities. All charges for heat, gas, water, electric, trash and sewage disposal for the Leased Space, whether billed directly by the providers of the same to Tenant or by Landlord as the owner of the Building, which charges shall not exceed the charges actually incurred by Landlord therefor.
(d) For purposes of this Lease, the term Rent or rent shall be deemed to refer to Minimum Annual Rent and Additional Rent.

CONDITION OF LEASED SPACE.
Tenant has accepted the Leased Space and acknowledges that the Leased Space is in the condition required by this Lease.
(a) Except as hereafter provided, Tenant shall make no alterations, additions or improvements (Tenant Alterations) to the Leased Space without the consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. At the time of Landlords consent, Landlord shall designate whether Tenant shall be required to remove the proposed Tenant Alteration upon termination of this Lease, and the absence of such designation in Landlords written consent shall be deemed Landlords agreement that Tenant shall not be obligated to remove Tenant Alterations upon the termination of this Lease. Landlord also may impose such reasonable conditions as part of its consent as Landlord deems appropriate, taking
into consideration the nature of the proposed Tenant Alteration, including, without limitation, requiring Tenant to furnish Landlord with security for the payment of all costs to be incurred in connection with such work, insurance, and copies of the plans, specifications and permits necessary for such work. Nothing herein, however, shall be construed to obligate Tenant to construct any Tenant Alteration for which Landlord has given its consent.
(b) Landlords consent shall not be required for Tenant Alterations which (i) do not adversely impact the structural integrity of the Building or the systems serving the Building or their operation, (ii) are not visible from the Building exterior and (iii) qualify under the following:
(A) The Tenant Alteration is to be made to portions of the Leased Premises other than the laboratory areas and the cost thereof is $10,000 or less with respect to any Tenant Alteration project (or $20,000 or less in the aggregate with respect to Tenant Alteration projects undertaken over any twelve (12) consecutive month period); or
(B) The Tenant Alteration is to be made to the laboratory areas of the Leased Premises and the cost thereof is $50,000 or less with respect to any Tenant Alteration project (or $100,000 or less in the aggregate with respect to Tenant Alteration projects undertaken over any twelve (12) consecutive month period).
Tenant Alterations described in this subsection (b) for which Landlords consent is not required hereinafter are called Permitted Tenant Alterations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, painting or carpeting of the interior of the Leased Space and like cosmetic improvements shall not be deemed Tenant Alterations regardless of the cost thereof. Tenant shall not be obligated to remove Permitted Tenant Alterations upon the termination of this Lease unless an Event of Default has occurred which is then continuing and Landlord so requires such removal.
(c) All Tenant Alterations shall be done at Tenants expense by contractors approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned and shall be deemed given unless Landlord notifies Tenant of its objections within ten (10) business days after delivery of Tenants request for approval. With respect to Tenant Alterations other than the Permitted Tenant Alterations, no work shall be performed until the plans therefore have been approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned and shall be deemed approved unless Landlord notifies Tenant of objections to the proposed plans within ten (10) business days after delivery to Landlord of a complete set of the plans therefor. In connection with the review of plans submitted by Tenant, Landlord shall be reimbursed by Tenant for Landlords cost in reviewing such plans at the rate of $125.00 per hour; subject to reasonable increase to reflect the then current hourly charge imposed for such review by Landlord for its tenants in the Center generally, and prior to undertaking any such review, Landlord shall provide a statement of the maximum review hours to be dedicated to such review. With respect to Permitted Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a copy of Tenants application for a building permit therefor, if applicable (together with all attachments thereto), and no review fee shall be charged to Tenant by Landlord in connection therewith nor
shall Landlords approval of such application be required. Tenant shall provide copies of as-built plans and specifications for all Tenant Alterations to Landlord within a reasonable time of completion of the Tenant Alteration. All Tenant Alterations shall be done in a first class, workmanlike manner and shall comply with all insurance requirements then made available to Tenant and all applicable laws, ordinances, rules and regulations of governmental authorities having jurisdiction thereover, and, where applicable, with all reasonable requirements of Landlord imposed as a condition of such consent.
(d) If, as a condition of Landlords consent, removal of a Tenant Alteration is required at termination of this Lease, Tenant shall promptly remove such Tenant Alterations and repair any damage occasioned by such removal. In default thereof, Landlord may effect said removal and repairs at Tenants expense. With respect to any Tenant Alterations which Tenant is not obligated to remove hereunder (including without limitation Permitted Tenant Alterations), such Tenant Alterations, if not removed by Tenant upon the termination of this Lease, shall be deemed abandoned by Tenant, and deemed a part of Landlords property, notwithstanding any provision of Section 16 to the contrary.
Prior to Tenants performing or ordering (other than through Landlord or Landlords contractors) any construction or other work on or about the Leased Space for which a lien could be filed against the Leased Space or the Building, Tenant shall enter into a written waiver of liens agreement with the contractor who is to perform such work, and such written agreement shall be filed, in accordance with the Mechanics Lien Law of the state where the Building is located prior to the commencement of such work. Tenants failure to enter into or record such waiver of liens shall not be deemed a default hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any mechanics or other lien shall be filed against the Leased Space or the Building purporting to be for labor or material furnished or to be furnished at the request of the Tenant other than through Landlord or Landlords contractors, then Tenant shall at its expense cause such lien to be discharged of record by payment, bond or otherwise, within fifteen (15) days after Tenant receives notice of the filing thereof. If Tenant shall fail to cause such lien to be discharged by payment, bond or otherwise within such period, Landlord may cause such lien to be discharged by payment, bond or otherwise, without investigation as to the validity thereof or as to any offsets or defenses thereto, and Tenant shall, upon demand, reimburse Landlord for all amounts paid and costs incurred, including attorneys fees, in having such lien discharged of record. If, however, Tenant notifies Landlord during such fifteen (15) day period that it disputes the validity of such lien and provides security reasonably acceptable to Landlord in an amount which is sufficient to discharge such lien in full, Landlord shall refrain from satisfying such lien for a period not to exceed one hundred twenty (120) days.
CONDITION OF LEASED SPACE.
Tenant acknowledges and agrees that, except as expressly set forth in this Lease, there have been no representations or warranties made by or on behalf of Landlord with respect to the
Leased Space or the Building or with respect to the suitability of either for the conduct of Tenants Business.
COMMON AREA MAINTENANCE.
(a) Landlord shall provide all maintenance, repairs and replacements to all common areas external to the Building, and the roof and structure of the Building. The cost of same shall be included in the Operating Expenses to the extent provided in Section 3(a)(iii) unless the necessity for the foregoing arises from the gross negligence or willful and wanton misconduct of Landlord or its employees, in which case such cost shall not be included as part of the Operating Expenses but shall be paid by Landlord (without prejudice to Landlords right to recover same from the responsible party). Any such maintenance, replacements or repairs and any labor performed or materials furnished by or upon the direction of Landlord shall be performed in a good and workmanlike manner, using only materials of at least the same quality and integrity as that being repaired or replaced, and performed and furnished in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, ordinances and requirements of all duly constituted authorities or governmental bodies having jurisdiction over the Building, and the requirements of any board of underwriters having jurisdiction thereof. It is understood that this is a triple net lease, with Minimum Annual Rent paid to Landlord intended to be net of taxes, repairs not covered by this Section or Section 14, insurance and Operating Expenses.
(b) Unless otherwise agreed with Tenant in writing, Landlord agrees that all maintenance to the common areas external to the Building which the Association offers to perform or is obligated to perform for the benefit of lots in the Center shall be performed by the Association. Landlord shall use diligent efforts to enforce any such obligation of the Association. Except during such period of time as Landlord or its affiliates control the Association, Landlord shall not be liable in damages or otherwise for temporary delay or failure in furnishing any service or facility to be provided by the Association.
(c) In the absence of a judgment to the contrary, in no event shall any delay or failure to provide the services or obligations under subsections (a) or (b) above, regardless of cause, be deemed to be an eviction or disturbance of Tenants use and possession of the Leased Space, render Landlord liable to Tenant, authorize abatement of rent, relieve Tenant from performance of its obligations under this Lease, or result in a termination of this Lease. The foregoing, however, shall not be deemed to prevent Tenants exercise of its rights under Section 42 hereof.
ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
(a) Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, assign or mortgage (except as permitted under Section 36(b) hereof) this Lease or any interest therein or sublet the Leased Space or any part thereof. For the purposes of this paragraph, the sale or assignment of a controlling interest in the Tenant corporation or a majority interest in the Tenant partnership as the case may be shall be deemed an assignment, but the assignment to a parent, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Tenant or successor corporation shall be permitted, provided that such assignee assumes the obligations of Tenant and that such assignment shall not relieve
Tenant of its obligations hereunder. For purposes herein, (A) a successor corporation is one into which Tenant is merged or consolidated, or which acquired those of Tenants assets or business located in the Leased Space as of the date of the assignment, and (B) a controlling interest shall mean the ownership of fifty percent or more of the beneficial interest in the person or entity in question, unless the corporation is publicly traded in which case such transfers of stock (whether or not a controlling interest) shall not be deemed to be an assignment. As to any other assignment, Landlord agrees that it shall not unreasonably withhold its consent, provided the business of Tenants assignee or subtenant is no more hazardous than that of Tenant, it being understood that it shall not be unreasonable for Landlord to require, as a condition of such consent:
(b) That 50% of any money or other economic consideration received by Tenant as a result of such subletting or assignment and which is not properly allocable to any lease of Tenants personal property in the Leased Space or sale of Tenants assets from the business operated at the Leased Space or sale of Tenants stock or other arms-length transaction, which exceeds, in the aggregate, the total sums which Tenant is obligated to pay Landlord under this Lease (pro rated to reflect obligations allocable to that portion of the Leased Space subject to the sublease or assignment) shall be payable to Landlord as Additional Rent under this Lease without affecting or reducing any other obligation of Tenant hereunder; and
(c) Unless otherwise agreed in Landlords consent, no subletting or assignment shall release Tenant of Tenants obligation or alter the primary liability of Tenant to pay the rental and to perform all other obligations to be performed by Tenant hereunder. The acceptance of rental by Landlord from any other person shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of any provision hereof. Consent to one assignment or subletting shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting. In the event of default by any assignee of Tenant or any successor of Tenant in the performance of any of the terms hereof, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant without the necessity of exhausting remedies against such assignee or successor. Landlord may consent to subsequent assignment or subletting of this Lease or amendments or modifications to this Lease with assignees of Tenant, without notifying Tenant, or any successor of Tenant, and without obtaining its or their consent thereto and such action shall not relieve Tenant of liability under this Lease.
ACCESS TO LEASED SPACE.
Landlord, its employees and agents, shall have the right to enter the Leased Space at all reasonable times for the purpose of examining or inspecting the same, showing the same to prospective purchasers or tenants of the Building, or mortgagees, and making such alterations, repairs, improvements or additions to the Leased Space or to the Building as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable provided such alterations, repairs, improvements or additions do not adversely affect Tenants Business or use of the Leased Space or, except with Tenants consent, alter the Tenants Alterations. Except in case of emergency which, in Landlords reasonable judgment, threatens imminent injury to persons or property, any such entry shall be after reasonable notice to Tenant and in compliance with Tenants practices from time to time established with respect to testing areas or other areas where confidential information is located
or to which governmental regulations affecting access may apply, for which Tenant has provided written notice to Landlord. If a representative of Tenant shall not be present to open and permit entry into the Leased Space at any time when such entry by Landlord is necessary in an emergency, Landlord may enter by means of a master key (or forcibly) without liability to Tenant and without such entry constituting an eviction of Tenant or termination of this Lease. All keys must be returned to Landlord at the expiration or termination of the Lease.
(a) Landlord shall perform all maintenance, replacements and repairs necessary to maintain the roof, load bearing walls (other than paint and wall coverings), floors (other than carpeting, tile and similar floor coverings), foundations and other structural elements of the Building; provided, however, that Landlord shall not be obligated for any of such repairs until the expiration of a reasonable period of time after written notice that such repair is needed. The cost of same shall be included in the Operating Expenses to the extent provided in Section 3(a)(iii) unless the necessity for any of the foregoing arises from the gross negligence or wilful and wanton misconduct of Landlord or its employees, in which case such cost shall not be included as part of the Operating Expenses but shall be paid by Landlord (without prejudice to Landlords right to recover same from the responsible party). Any such maintenance, replacements or repairs and any labor performed or materials furnished by or upon the direction of Landlord shall be performed in a good and workmanlike manner, using only materials of at least the same quality and integrity as that being repaired or replaced, and performed and furnished in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, ordinances and requirements of all duly constituted authorities or governmental bodies having jurisdiction over the Building, and the requirements of any board of underwriters having jurisdiction thereof.
(b) Except as the Landlord is obligated for repairs as provided above or in Section 11, Tenant shall make, at its sole cost and expense, all repairs necessary to maintain the Leased Space, including without limitation, all plumbing, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and electrical lines, pipes, fixtures and equipment not expressly to be maintained by Landlord pursuant to subparagraph (a) and shall keep the Leased Space and the fixtures therein in neat and orderly condition. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant at its expense is specifically required to make promptly all repairs (i) to that portion of any pipes, lines, ducts, wires or conduits at the Building; (ii) to the glass windows, plate glass doors, and any fixtures or appurtenances composed of glass and which are located within the Leased Space; (iii) to Tenants sign(s); and (iv) to any heating or air conditioning equipment installed in the Building. During the Term, Tenant at its own expense shall keep in place a maintenance contract with a reputable heating and air conditioning service company reasonably acceptable to Landlord, and provide Landlord with a copy of the same. If the Tenant refuses or neglects to make such repairs or fails to diligently prosecute the same to completion after written notice from Landlord of the need therefore and a reasonable time for cure, Landlord may make such repairs at the expense of Tenant and such expense shall be collectible as Additional Rent. Any such repairs and any labor performed or materials famished in, on or about the Leased Space shall be performed and furnished by Tenant in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, ordinances and requirements of duly constituted authorities having jurisdiction over the Building, the
requirements of any board of underwriters having jurisdiction thereof, as well as any reasonable regulations imposed by Landlord pertaining thereto. Without limitation of the foregoing, Landlord shall have the right to approve any and all contractors and suppliers who furnish materials and labor for such repairs, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
(c) If required solely as a result of Tenants particular activities at the Leased Space (as opposed to general occupancy thereof by any tenant), Tenant also shall comply with, and make any repairs and installations required by any applicable law.
(d) Provided that Landlord shall exercise reasonable efforts to effectuate its repairs in a manner which will keep at a minimum Landlords interference with Tenants use and occupancy of the Leased Space, Landlord shall not be liable by reason of any injury to or interference with Tenants business arising from the making of any repairs, alterations, additions or improvements in or to the Leased Space, or the Building or Center or to any appurtenances or equipment therein.
TERMINATION AND EXTENSION.
(a) It is hereby mutually agreed that this Lease shall terminate at the end of the Term (as the same may have been accelerated pursuant to Section 2(c)), if a renewal right has not been exercised or, if exercised, upon the end of any renewal term, without notice.
(b) If Tenant shall hold over after the expiration of the Term hereof, and Landlord shall not give consent to such hold over by Tenant, such tenancy may be terminated as permitted by applicable state law, and until Tenant has vacated the Leased Space, it agrees to pay to Landlord rent at a monthly rental double the rate payable by Tenant at the expiration of the Term of this Lease.
SURRENDER OF LEASED SPACE.
At the end of the Term of this Lease, Tenant shall surrender the Leased Space to Landlord, in broom clean condition and in good order and repair except for ordinary wear and tear and damage for which Tenant is not obligated to make repairs under this Lease. Subject to Sections 8 and 9 hereof and if an Event of Default has not occurred which is then continuing, Tenant shall at the end of the Term hereof remove any Tenant Alterations and any equipment, furniture, trade fixtures or other personal property placed in the Leased Space by Tenant, unless Landlord directs Tenant to not remove Tenant Alterations, in which event the same shall remain in place and be the property of Landlord. Tenant shall repair all damage to the Leased Space caused by such removal and, except for Tenant Alterations to remain in place as permitted or directed by Landlord, restore the Leased Space to the condition in which they were prior to the installation of the items so removed, reasonable wear and tear and damage by casualty not caused by Tenant excepted. Tenant shall surrender the Leased Space to Landlord at the end of the Term hereof, without notice of any kind, and Tenant waives all right to any such notice as may be provided under any laws now or hereafter in effect in Pennsylvania. If Tenant shall fail to remove
any Tenant Alterations which it was required to remove pursuant to Section 8 of this Lease or any of its equipment, furniture, trade fixtures or other personal property, Landlord may remove and store the same at the expense of Tenant or sell the same on behalf of Tenant at public or private sale in such manner as is commercially reasonable, with any proceeds thereof to be first applied to the costs and expenses, including attorneys fees, of the storage and sale and the payment of any amounts owed hereunder by Tenant.
INDEMNIFICATION AND INSURANCE.
(a) Tenant covenants and agrees that it shall, without notice or demand and at its own cost and expense, indemnify and save harmless Landlord against and from, and Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for, any and all claims by or on behalf of any person arising in any manner whatsoever from, out of, or in connection with any accident, death, injury, or damage, loss or theft of property in or about the Leased Space (whether involving property belonging to Tenant or any other person) resulting from the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant, its agents, employees, licensees or invitees, and from and against all costs, reasonable attorney fees, expenses and liabilities incurred in or as a result of any such claim or action or proceeding brought against Landlord by reason of any such claim. Tenant, upon notice from Landlord, covenants to resist or defend such action or proceeding by legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to Landlord.
(b) Tenant shall keep in force public liability insurance with respect to the Leased Space, including contractual insurance with respect to the covenants and agreements above, with companies and in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord to afford protection of not less than Three Million ($3,000,000.00) Dollars with respect to personal injury or death and property damage, and naming Landlord as an additional insured and providing not less than thirty (30) days notice of cancellation. Copies of such policies or a certificate of insurance evidencing same shall be delivered to Landlord.
(c) Landlord covenants and agrees that it shall, without notice or demand and at its own cost and expense, indemnify and save harmless Tenant against and from, and Tenant shall not be liable to Landlord for, any and all claims by or on behalf of any person arising in any manner whatsoever from, out of, or in connection with any accident, death, injury, or damage, loss or theft of property in or about the Leased Space (whether involving property belonging to Landlord or any other person) resulting from the gross negligence or wanton and willful misconduct of Landlord, its agents or employees, and from and against all costs, reasonable attorney fees, expenses and liabilities incurred in or as a result of any such claim or action or proceeding brought against Tenant by reason of any such claim. Landlord, upon notice from Tenant covenants to resist or defend such action or proceeding by legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to Tenant.
(d) Landlord shall keep in force public liability insurance with respect to the Building, including contractual insurance with respect to the covenants and agreements above, with companies and in form reasonably acceptable to Tenant to afford protection of not less than Three Million ($3,000,000.00) Dollars with respect to personal injury or death and property
damage, and naming Tenant as an additional insured and providing not less than thirty (30) days notice of cancellation. Copies of such policies or a certificate of insurance evidencing same shall be delivered to Tenant.
(e) All property insurance policies also shall contain a clause or endorsement denying the insurer any rights of subrogation against Landlord, in the case of Tenants insurer, and Tenant, in the case of Landlords insurer. As to any loss or damage covered by insurance containing a waiver of subrogation clause or similar endorsement, each party hereby releases the other, to the extent of such damaged partys insurance indemnities, from any and all liability for such loss or damage even if such loss or damage shall be brought about by the fault or negligence of such other party, or the agents, employees, invitees or licensees of such other party; provided however, that this release shall be effective only with respect to loss or damage occurring during such time as the applicable policies of insurance shall contain a clause to the effect that this release shall not affect said policies or the right of the insured to recover thereunder. If any policy does not contain such a clause, the insured party shall, at the written request of the other party to this release, have such a clause added to said policy if an endorsement so providing is obtainable. This subsection (e) shall supersede any provisions to the contrary in subsections (a) and (c) above.
FIRE OR OTHER CASUALTY.
(a) At all times during the effectiveness of this Lease, Landlord shall maintain in full force and effect a policy of fire and extended coverage insurance for the full replacement value of the Building, subject to a commercially reasonable deductible. The premium for such insurance and any deductibles expended shall be included as an Operating Expense. Such coverage shall be issued by any reputable insurance company licensed in Pennsylvania, with at least a Bests rating of A or better. Landlord agrees to deliver a certificate evidencing such insurance coverage upon Tenants request from time to time.
(b) If the Leased Space or the Building is partially damaged by fire or other casualty such that Tenant is able to conduct its business therein at a reduced but economically feasible level on a temporary basis, and insurance proceeds are available to Landlord, the damages shall be repaired by and at the expense of Landlord and the rent, until such repairs shall be made, shall be apportioned from the date of such fire or other casualty according to the part of the Leased Space which is usable by Tenant. Landlord agrees to repair such damage within a reasonable period of time after receipt from Tenant of written notice of such damage, except that Tenant agrees to repair and replace its own furniture, furnishings and equipment and Tenant Alterations. If Landlord is unable to complete reconstruction of the damaged premises within two hundred ten (210) days from the date of the casualty, or at least one year prior to the then scheduled expiration date of the Lease, Landlord or Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease.
(c) If the Building is totally damaged or is rendered wholly untenantable by fire or other casualty, rent shall abate from the date the Building is rendered untenantable, and each party shall have the right to terminate the Lease by written notice to the other on or before thirty (30) days after such casualty occurred. If, however, Landlord consents in writing within thirty
(30) days following such casualty to reconstruct the damaged premises to the condition which existed prior to such casualty and a reputable contractor acceptable to Landlord and Tenant determines that such reconstruction can be substantially completed within two hundred ten (210) days from the date of such casualty, neither party shall have the right to terminate this Lease and Landlord shall undertake reconstruction of the damaged premises. If, however, Landlord is unable to complete reconstruction of the damaged premises within two hundred ten (210) days from the date of the casualty, or at least one year prior to the then scheduled expiration date of the Lease, Landlord or Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease.
(d) Whenever Landlord shall be obligated hereunder to reconstruct damaged premises, Landlord agrees to undertake such reconstruction with reasonable diligence and, if Tenant shall remain in possession of any portion of the Leased Space, in such manner to as to minimize interference or disruption of Tenants use of the said portion of the Leased Space. Reconstruction shall be performed in a good and workmanlike manner, in accordance with standard construction practices and safety procedures, using only materials of at least equal quality and integrity as the materials damaged by the casualty, undertaken in such manner so as to restore the damaged premises to substantially the condition which existed prior to such casualty, and performed and furnished in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, ordinances and requirements of all duly constituted authorities or governmental bodies having jurisdiction over the Building, and the requirements of any board of underwriters having jurisdiction thereof.
(e) Upon the termination of this Lease under the conditions hereinbefore provided, Tenants liability for rent shall cease as of the day of the casualty. Tenant shall promptly vacate and surrender the Leased Space to Landlord in its as is condition, whereupon neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder except that Landlord shall reimburse to Tenant (i) any portion of the Security Deposit not otherwise applied by Landlord in accordance with this Lease, and (ii) prepaid Rent paid by Tenant. Such reimbursement shall be made in full to Tenant not later than thirty (30) days following termination of this Lease, and if not so paid, such unpaid amounts shall accrue interest at the Default Rate specified in this Lease from the date of termination until paid in full. The limitations set forth in Section 28 hereof shall not apply Landlords liability for payment of the foregoing amounts.
If the Leased Space or the Building or any material part of either shall be condemned or otherwise subject to an eminent domain proceeding, then and in that event, upon the transfer of title to the authority exercising such power, this Lease shall terminate, and all rent paid in advance shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if only a part of the Leased Space shall be so taken and the part not so taken shall be sufficient in Tenants reasonable judgment for the economic and feasible operation of Tenants business, Tenant, at its election, may retain the part not so taken and there shall be a proportional reduction in the rent. All compensation awarded or paid upon such a total or partial taking of the Leased Space shall belong to and be the property of the Landlord. The foregoing shall not, however, be construed to preclude the Tenant from prosecuting any claim directly against the condemning
authority in such condemnation proceedings for loss of business, or depreciation to, damage to, or cost of removal of, or for the value of stock, trade fixtures, furniture, and other personal property belonging to the Tenant, provided, however, that no such award or claim shall diminish or otherwise adversely affect the Landlords award.
At any time, and from time to time, upon the written request of Landlord or any Mortgagee (as defined in section 29 hereof), Tenant, within ten (10) business days of the date of such written request, agrees to execute and deliver to Landlord and/or such Mortgagee, a written statement: (a) ratifying this Lease; (b) confirming the commencement and expiration dates of the terms of this Lease; (c) certifying that Tenant is in occupancy of the Leased Space, and that the Lease is in full force and effect and has not been modified, assigned, supplemented or amended except by such writings as shall be stated; (d) certifying that all conditions and agreements under this Lease to be satisfied or performed by Landlord have been satisfied and performed except as shall be stated; (e) certifying that Landlord is not in default under the Lease and there are no defenses or offsets against the enforcement of this Lease by Landlord, or stating the defaults and/or defenses claimed by Tenant; (f) reciting the amount of advance rent, if any, paid by Tenant and the date to which such rent has been paid; (g) reciting the amount of security deposited with Landlord, if any; and (h) any other information which Landlord or the Mortgagee reasonably may require. The failure of Tenant to execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord and/or any Mortgagee a statement in accordance with the provisions herein within the period set forth herein shall constitute an acknowledgment by Tenant which may be relied upon by any person holding or intending to acquire any interest whatsoever in the Leased Space or the Building that this Lease has not been assigned, amended, changed or modified, is in full force and effect and that the Minimum Annual Rent, and Additional Rent have been duly and fully paid not beyond the respective due dates immediately preceding the date of the request for such statement and shall constitute as to any persons entitled to rely on such statements (other than Landlord) a waiver of any defaults by Landlord or defenses or offsets against the enforcement of this Lease by Landlord which may exist prior to the date of the written request.
The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute an Event of Default of this Lease by Tenant:
(a) A failure by Tenant to pay, when due, any installment of rent hereunder or any such other sum herein required to be paid by Tenant where such failure continues for ten (10) days after written notice thereof from Landlord; provided however said written notice shall not be required to be given by Landlord more than twice in any twelve (12) month period.
(b) A failure by Tenant to observe and perform any other terms or conditions of this Lease to be observed or performed by Tenant, where such failure continues for thirty (30) days after written notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant; provided that, if such default is of a nature that cannot be reasonably cured within such thirty (30) day period, no default shall exist so long
as Tenant has commenced cure within such thirty (30) day period and diligently pursues same to completion within ninety (90) days.
(c) The making by Tenant of any assignment for the benefit of creditors, an adjudication that Tenant is bankrupt, insolvent, or unable to pay its debts; the filing by or against Tenant of a petition in bankruptcy or of a petition for reorganization or arrangement under any law relating to bankruptcy (unless, in the case of a petition filed against Tenant, the same is dismissed within sixty (60) days after the filing thereof); the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of substantially all of Tenants assets located in the Leased Space or of Tenants interest in this Lease (unless possession is restored to Tenant within thirty (30) days after such appointment); or the attachment, execution or levy against, or other judicial seizure of, substantially all of Tenants assets located in the Leased Space or of Tenants interest in this Lease (unless the same is discharged within thirty (30) days after issuance thereof).
Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default by Tenant:
(a) Landlord may perform for the account of Tenant any such act, the omission of which constituted an Event of Default by Tenant and immediately recover as Additional Rent any expenditures made and the amount of any obligations incurred in connection therewith, plus interest at the Default Rate from the date the obligations are incurred by Landlord until payment therefor to Landlord, whether before or after entry of judgment and issuance of execution thereon.
(b) Landlord may accelerate all Minimum Annual Rent and Additional Rent due for the balance of the Term of this Lease and declare the same to be immediately due and payable. In determining the amount of any future payments due Landlord relating to Operating Expenses and/or Real Estate Taxes, Landlord shall make such determination based upon the most recent estimates of Operating Expenses and/or Real Estate Taxes available.
(c) Landlord, at its option, may serve notice upon Tenant that this Lease and the then unexpired term thereof shall cease and expire and become absolutely void on the date specified in such notice, to be not less than five (5) days after the date of such notice without any right on the part of the Tenant to save the forfeiture by payment of any sum due or by the performance of any term or condition broken; and, thereupon and at the expiration of the time limit in such notice, this Lease and the Term hereof, as well as the right, title and interest of the Tenant hereunder, shall wholly cease and expire and become void in the same manner and with the same force and effect (except as to Tenants liability) as if the date fixed in such notice were the date herein granted for expiration of the Term of this Lease. Thereupon, Tenant shall immediately quit and surrender to Landlord the Leased Space, and Landlord may enter into and repossess the Leased Space by summary proceedings, detainer, ejectment or otherwise and remove all occupants thereof and, at Landlords option, any property thereon, without being liable to indictment, prosecution or damages therefor. No such expiration or termination of this Lease
shall relieve Tenant of its liability and obligations under the Lease, whether or not the Leased Space shall be relet.
(d) Landlord may, at any time after the occurrence of any Event of Default, re-enter and repossess the Leased Space and any part thereof and attempt in its own name, as agent for Tenant if this Lease not be terminated, or on its own behalf if this Lease be terminated, to relet all or any part of the Leased Space for and upon such terms and to such persons and for such period or periods as Landlord, in its sole discretion, shall determine, including a term beyond the termination of this Lease; and Landlord shall not be required to accept any tenant offered by Tenant or observe any instruction given by Tenant about such reletting. For the purpose of such reletting, Landlord may decorate or make repairs, changes, alterations or additions in or to the Leased Space to the extent deemed by Landlord desirable or convenient; and the cost of such decoration, repairs, changes, alterations or additions shall be charged to and be payable by Tenant as Additional Rent hereunder, as well as any reasonable brokerage and attorneys fees incurred by Landlord; and any sums collected by Landlord from any new tenant obtained shall be credited against the balance of the rent due hereunder as aforesaid. Tenant shall pay to Landlord monthly, on the days when the rent would have been payable under this Lease, the amount due hereunder less the amount obtained by Landlord from such new tenant.
(e) Landlord shall have the right of injunction, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any of the terms and conditions hereof, to restrain the same and the right to invoke any remedy allowed by law or in equity, whether or not other remedies, indemnities or reimbursements are herein provided. The rights and remedies given to Landlord in this Lease are distinct, separate and cumulative remedies; and no one of them, whether or not exercised by Landlord, shall be deemed to be in exclusion of any of the others.
(f) In the event of the occurrence of an Event of Default hereunder, Landlord shall have the right to change the locks on the Leased Space and exclude Tenant therefrom, and to discontinue all or part of the services and facilities provided to Tenant under this Lease or otherwise, which-action shall not be deemed an eviction. Such action may be taken, however, only upon five (5) days prior notice to Tenant, and Tenant hereby releases Landlord from any liability for any damages sustained by Tenant or its property as a result of the same.
(g) If Tenant has paid accelerated rent to Landlord and Landlord thereafter re-lets any portion of the Leased Space, any sums collected by Landlord from any new tenant obtained in excess of the cost of decoration, repairs, changes, alterations or additions, and any reasonable brokerage and attorneys fees incurred by Landlord in connection with such re-letting, to the extent the same exceed all other damages incurred by Landlord as a result of Tenants default, shall be paid to Tenant if, as and when received by Landlord from the replacement tenant, but in no event shall the amount to be paid to Tenant by Landlord exceed the amount of accelerated rent and other damages paid by Tenant to Landlord.
(h) Following an Event of Default, Landlord agrees not to unreasonably withhold, delay or condition (including, for example, the requirement of any back-rent payments by Tenant) its consent to any subtenants or assignees which Tenant may propose for all or any
portion of the Leased Space provided that Landlords acceptance of any such subtenant or assignee shall not be deemed to cure Tenants default nor otherwise relieve Tenant of its obligations hereunder, unless Landlord otherwise agrees in writing. Any rent paid as a result of any such assignment or sublease shall be applied in accordance with subsection (g) above.
CONFESSION OF JUDGMENT FOR POSSESSION IN LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCE.
If Tenant fails to vacate the Leased Premises upon termination of this Lease or an Event of Default under Section 21 (a) shall have occurred, Landlord shall have the further remedy of confession of judgment for possession:
ANY PROTHONOTARY OR ATTORNEY OF ANY COURT OF RECORD MAY APPEAR FOR TENANT TO FILE AN AGREEMENT FOR ENTERING IN ANY COMPETENT COURT AN AMICABLE ACTION FOR JUDGMENT IN EJECTMENT AGAINST TENANT AND ALL PERSONS CLAIMING UNDER TENANT, AND A JUDGMENT FOR THE RECOVERY BY LANDLORD OF POSSESSION MAY ISSUE FORTHWITH WITHOUT ANY PRIOR WRIT OR PROCEEDINGS WHATSOEVER. IF FOR ANY REASON AFTER SUCH ACTION SHALL HAVE BEEN COMMENCED, IT SHALL BE CANCELED OR SUSPENDED AND POSSESSION OF THE LEASED SPACE REMAINS IN OR IS RESTORED TO TENANT, LANDLORD SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT UPON ANY SUBSEQUENT DEFAULT OR TERMINATION OF THIS LEASE OR ANY RENEWAL OR EXTENSION HEREOF, TO BRING ONE OR MORE AMICABLE ACTIONS IN EJECTMENT AS HEREINBEFORE SET FORTH TO RECOVER POSSESSION OF THE LEASED SPACE. IF IN ANY AMICABLE ACTION IN EJECTMENT, LANDLORD SHALL CAUSE TO BE FILED IN SUCH ACTION AN AFFIDAVIT SETTING FORTH THE FACTS NECESSARY TO AUTHORIZE THE ENTRY OF JUDGMENT AND IF A TRUE COPY OF THIS LEASE (AND THE TRUTH OF THE COPY STATED IN SUCH AFFIDAVIT SHALL BE SUFFICIENT PROOF) BE FILED IN SUCH ACTION, IT SHALL NOT BE NECESSARY TO FILE THE ORIGINAL AS A WARRANT OF ATTORNEY, ANY LAW, RULE OF COURT, CUSTOM OR PRACTICE TO THE CONTRARY NOTWITHSTANDING. TENANT EXPRESSLY RELEASES TO LANDLORD, AND TO ANY AND ALL ATTORNEYS WHO MAY APPEAR FOR TENANT, ALL ERRORS IN THE SAID PROCEEDINGS, AND ALL LIABILITY THEREFOR.
The failure or delay on the part of either party to enforce or exercise at any time any of the terms and conditions of this Lease shall in no way be construed to be a waiver thereof, nor in any way to affect the validity of this Lease or any part hereof, or the right of such party to thereafter enforce each and every such term or condition. No waiver by either party of any breach of this Lease shall be held to be a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. The receipt by Landlord of rent or the payment by Tenant of rent at a time when a default exists under this Lease shall not be construed as a waiver of such default. The receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than the rent due shall not be construed to be other than a payment on account of the rent then due, nor shall any statement on Tenants check or any letter accompanying Tenants check be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord may accept such payment without prejudice to Landlords right to recover the balance of the rent due or to pursue any other remedies provided in this Lease. No act or thing done by this Lease shall be deemed an acceptance or a surrender of the Leased Space, and no agreement to accept such a surrender shall be valid unless in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement is sought.
If and so long as Tenant pays the rent reserved hereunder and observes and performs all the terms and conditions on Tenants part to be observed and performed hereunder, Tenant shall and may peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Leased Space for the entire Term hereof, subject to all of the provisions of this Lease.
Time periods for performance of each partys obligations (including without limitation construction obligations) under any of the terms of this Lease shall be extended for periods of time during which performance is prevented due to circumstances beyond the performing partys control, including without limitation, embargoes, governmental regulations, act of God, war or other strife, shortages or unavailability of materials or equipment which are special order items, strikes, lockouts, adverse weather conditions, bankruptcy or breach of contract by a subcontractor (collectively, Force Majeure). Force Majeure shall not apply, however, to any monetary obligation hereunder.
The respective rights and obligations provided in this Lease shall bind and shall inure to the parties hereto, and their successors and permitted assigns.
Landlords responsibility under this Lease shall be limited to its interest in the Leased Space and in the Building, and no members of Landlords partnership shall be personally liable hereunder. Tenant agrees to look solely to Landlords interest in the Leased Space and in the Building for the collection of any judgment, and, in entering any such judgment, the person entering the same shall request the prothonotary to mark the judgment index accordingly. If the Leased Space or the Building is transferred or conveyed, Landlord shall be relieved of all covenants and obligations under this Lease thereafter accruing, provided that notice of said transfer or conveyance is given to Tenant by Landlord.
Landlord represents that no Mortgages (hereafter defined) currently encumber the Building, any part thereof, or the land on which it is situate. Upon delivery of a nondisturbance and attornment agreement which is reasonably satisfactory to Tenant, stating that this Lease is, and all of Tenants rights hereunder are and shall always be, subject and subordinate to any such mortgage, leases of Landlords property (in sale-leaseback) pursuant to which Landlord has or shall retain the right of possession of the Leased Space (and/or the Building) or security instruments (collectively called Mortgage) that now exist, or may hereafter be placed upon the Leased Space or the Building, or any part thereof and all advances made or to be made thereunder and extensions thereof, and if the holder of any such interest forecloses or extinguishes Landlords rights in the Building or Leased Space, Tenant shall attorn to and recognize any such holder as the successor Landlord under this Lease. The aforesaid provision shall be self-operative and no further instrument or document shall be necessary unless required by any such Mortgagee or purchaser. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth above, any Mortgagee may at any time subordinate its Mortgage to this Lease, without Tenants consent, by execution of a written document subordinating such Mortgage to this Lease to the extent set forth therein, thereupon this Lease shall be deemed prior to such Mortgage. Should Landlord or any Mortgagee or purchaser desire confirmation of either such subordination or such attornment, as the case may be, Tenant upon written request, and from time to time, will execute and deliver without charge and in form reasonably satisfactory to Tenant, Landlord, the Mortgagee or the purchaser all instruments and/or documents that may be required to acknowledge such subordination and/or agreement to attorn, in recordable form within ten (10) business days following a request therefor from Landlord.
RULES AND REGULATIONS.
Tenant agrees to comply with the rules and regulations established by Landlord from time to time; provided, however, that none of such rules and regulation materially and adversely affect Tenants rights hereunder or operation of Tenants Business from the Leased Space, and Tenant is
afforded a reasonable time from notice thereof to achieve compliance therewith. The existing rules and regulations are attached hereto as Exhibit D.

Notice given in accordance with this Section shall be deemed given and received as of the earlier of (i) actual receipt or (ii) first attempted delivery which is refused (as opposed to being returned for insufficient postage/fee, improper address or like cause).
Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that Tenant has not dealt with any broker, firm, company or person in connection with the negotiation for or the obtaining of this Lease, other than Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., whose commission shall be paid by Tenant pursuant to a separate agreement between tenant and such broker, and each party shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other from and against any claim by any other person claiming a commission or other form of compensation by virtue of having dealt with such party with regard to this Lease, and any attorneys fees or other expenses incurred by the other party in connection therewith. Tenant shall similarly indemnify, defend hold harmless Landlord against any claim by Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. relating to this Lease.
Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, paint, place or erect any sign on the exterior doors or walls of the Leased Space or of the Building or Center.

Landlord shall be responsible to obtain approval from the Association with respect to such signage and, as Declarant under the Covenants, hereby (i) approves the size of the signs described herein, and (ii) agrees not to unreasonably withhold its consent to the sign graphics on either sign as long as same is reasonably compatible with other business signage located within the Center.
Not later than December 31, 2007, Tenant agrees to deposit with Landlord, the sum of $95,000.00 to be held by Landlord as security for the faithful performance of all the terms and conditions of this Lease (Security Deposit). Should the Tenant breach any of the terms and conditions of this Lease which continues beyond any applicable cure period and required notice, Landlord shall have the right, at any time, to apply the Security Deposit or any part thereof, for the purpose of curing any such default or for the purpose of reimbursing Landlord for any damage or costs occasioned by such default, but the right of Landlord to apply the Security Deposit shall not affect any other remedies available to Landlord under this Lease or under applicable law. If the Security Deposit, or any part thereof, is so applied by Landlord, Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after demand, deposit additional funds with Landlord to restore the Security Deposit, and failure to do so shall constitute an event of default under this Lease.
If the Tenant shall have complied with all material terms and conditions of this Lease at the expiration of this Lease, the Security Deposit (without interest and amounts properly withdrawn by Landlord and not refunded by Tenant) shall be refunded to Tenant within thirty (30) days after the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease (including without limitation permitted terminations hereunder and terminations due to Landlords default which continues beyond applicable grace and cure periods following notice where applicable); provided, however, that Tenant first shall have vacated the Leased Space and surrendered possession thereof to the Landlord by delivery of keys, in accordance with the Lease provisions and shall have returned the Leased Space to Landlord in the condition required hereunder.
Nothing herein contained shall require Landlord to hold the sums so deposited as a trust fund, nor establish any relationship other than that of debtor and creditor with respect to said funds so deposited.
If Landlord shall assign or otherwise transfer its interest in this Lease, Landlord shall transfer the Security Deposit to the assignee or other transferee of such interest (with like obligation to transfer to any subsequent assignee or other transferee), and upon such transfer, Landlord shall be released and relieved from all liability and/or responsibility with respect to this Security Deposit and/or the return or application thereof.

Landlord and any agent employed by Landlord shall be permitted to utilize the name of Tenant and any occupant or user of the Leased Space, and other general information about the Tenant and such occupant or user, and the terms of this Lease, in advertising and promotional material utilized by them.
The title to paragraphs of this Lease are for convenience of reference only, and are not to be construed as defining, limiting or modifying the scope or intent of any of the terms and conditions of this Lease.
This Lease contains all covenants and agreements between Landlord and Tenant relating in any manner to the rental, use and occupancy of the Leased Space and Tenants use of the Building and other matters set forth in this Lease. No prior agreement or understanding pertaining to the same shall be valid or of any force or effect and the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease shall not be altered, modified or added to except in writing signed by Landlord and Tenant.

(a) If Landlord fails to fulfill its obligations under this Lease, Tenant shall notify Landlord of such non-performance. Except in the case where immediate response is required to avoid physical damage to the Leased Space or persons or Tenants property therein, Landlord shall have thirty (30) days to cure such nonperformance. If Landlord fails to complete cure within such thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice from Tenant, Tenant shall have the right, but not the obligation, to carry out such activities on behalf of Landlord so as to cure such nonperformance. Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for all reasonable costs, fees and expenses incurred by Tenant in connection with performing such cure. Such reimbursement shall be made within fifteen (15) days after written demand by Tenant, which demand shall be accompanied by appropriate invoices or other materials to substantiate the amount for the requested reimbursement. If Landlord fails to pay Tenant the amount requested within said fifteen (15) day period, such unpaid amounts shall accrue interest at the Default Rate which shall continue to accrue on any judgment obtained by Tenant against Landlord for recovery of such unreimbursed amounts. Notwithstanding the foregoing rights, Tenant shall not be entitled to set-off such amounts against Rent due hereunder, and Tenant hereby expressly waives such right, unless and until Tenant shall have obtained a final judgment against Landlord with respect to Landlords obligation under the Lease which Tenant alleges that Landlord failed to perform, and such right of set-off shall be applicable only to the amount of the judgment not paid within thirty (30) days and may be asserted by Tenant against installments of Rent thereafter coming due.
(b) Amounts due from Landlord to which the Default Rate has been applied shall continue to accrue interest at the Default Rate after entry of judgment and issuance of execution thereon until paid in full.
