The term (the Term) for which the Premises are hereby leased shall extend for a period of three (3) years, shall commence on March 1, 2020 (the Commencement Date), and shall end at noon on February 28, 2023, (the Expiration Date) or any earlier date upon which the Term may expire or be cancelled or terminated pursuant to any of the conditions or covenants of this Lease or pursuant to law. Promptly following the Commencement Date the parties hereto shall, if required by Landlord, enter into a supplementary agreement fixing the dates of the Commencement Date and the Expiration Date in the form which is attached hereto as Exhibit E and incorporated herein by reference.
1.4.1 Option to Renew. Tenant is hereby granted one (1) option to extend (the Extension Option) the Term of the Lease for one (1) additional period of three (3) years (the Extension Period). The Extension Period term shall begin the first day following the Expiration Date and shall take effect on the same terms and conditions in effect under the Lease immediately prior to the Extension Period, except that (i) Tenant shall have no further right to extend and (ii) monthly Base Rent shall be the rate which is Fair Market Value (as defined below). The Fair Market Value shall be the effective rent (face rate less free rent) being charged for comparable space in comparable buildings in the vicinity of the Building leased on comparable terms and shall be limited to the rates charged in such comparable transactions for tenants renewing or extending their leases.
(a) Exercise of Option. The Extension Option may be exercised only by (i) delivering in person to Landlords Building Manager in the Building Office written notice of Tenants irrevocable election to exercise no earlier than nine (9) months and no later than six (6) months prior to the commencement of the Extension Period, and (ii) collecting and retaining in exchange for such notice of exercise an original written receipt therefor signed and dated by Landlords Building Manager. Tenants exercise of its Extension Option shall not be effective or valid if there is any deviation in the timing or manner of exercise prescribed herein.
(b) Failure to Exercise. If Tenant shall fail validly and timely to exercise the Option herein granted, said Option shall terminate and shall be null and void and of no further force and effect.
(c) Fair Market Value. Provided that Tenant has validly exercised its Option when and as required hereunder, not less than one hundred and eighty (180) days prior to the commencement of the Extension Period, Landlord shall provide written notice to Tenant of its determination of the Fair Market Value. Within ten (10) days after receiving such determination (Tenants Review Period), Tenant shall irrevocably elect, in writing, to do one of the following: (i) accept Landlords determination; or (ii) object to Landlords determination and with such objection set forth in writing Tenants determination of the Fair Market Value. If Tenant so objects, Landlord and Tenant shall attempt in good faith to agree upon such Fair Market Value using their best good-faith efforts. If Landlord and Tenant fail to reach agreement within fifteen (15) days following Tenants Review Period (the Outside Agreement Date), then each partys determination shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance with the then-current rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association, but subject to the instructions set forth in this§ 1.4.1 et seq.. If Tenant objects to Landlords determination of Fair Market Value, Tenant shall pay Rent at the Fair Market Value determined by Landlord until the matter is resolved by binding arbitration as provided below subject to retroactive adjustment after the matter is so resolved. If Tenant fails so to accept or object to Landlords determination of Fair Market Value in writing within Tenants Review Period, Tenant shall conclusively be deemed to have approved of the Fair Market Value as determined by Landlord. The determination of the arbitrators shall be limited solely to the issue of whether Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Value for the Premises is the more accurate as determined by the arbitrators, taking into account the requirements of this§ 1.4.1 et seq.
(d) Appointment of Arbitrators. Not later than fifteen (15) days following the Outside Agreement Date, Landlord and Tenant shall each appoint one arbitrator who shall by profession be a real estate broker who shall have been active over the ten-year period ending on the date of such appointment in the leasing of commercial properties within northern San Mateo County. The determination of the arbitrators shall be limited solely to the issue of whether Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Value for the Premises is the more accurate as determined by the arbitrators, taking into account the requirements of this§ 1.4.1 et seq.
(e) Appointment of Third Arbitrator. The two (2) arbitrators so appointed shall within fifteen (15) days of the date of the appointment of the last-appointed arbitrator agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator, who shall be qualified under the same criteria as set forth hereinabove for qualification of the initial two arbitrators.
(f) Arbitrators Decision. The three (3) arbitrators shall, within thirty (30) days of the appointment of the third arbitrator, reach a decision as to whether the parties shall use Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Value, and shall notify Landlord and Tenant thereof. The decision of the majority of the three (3) arbitrators shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. The arbitrators shall not be permitted to set Fair Market Value to any level other than either Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Value.
(g) Failure to Appoint. If either Landlord or Tenant fails to appoint an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after the Outside Agreement Date, the arbitrator timely appointed by one of the parties shall reach a decision, notify Landlord and Tenant thereof, and such arbitrators decision shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. If the two (2) arbitrators fail to agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator, both arbitrators shall be dismissed and the matter to be decided shall be forthwith submitted to arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect, but subject to the instructions set forth in this§ 1.4.1 et seq..
(h) Cost of Arbitration. The cost of arbitration shall be paid by Landlord and Tenant equally.
(i) Default. Tenants exercise of the Option shall, at Landlords election, be null and void if Tenant is in Default on the date of Tenants notice of exercise or at any time thereafter and prior to commencement of the Extension Period. Tenants exercise of the Extension Option shall not operate to cure any Default by Tenant nor to extinguish or impair any rights or remedies of Landlord arising by virtue of such Default. If the Lease or Tenants right to possession of the Premises shall terminate before Tenant shall have exercised the Extension Option, then immediately upon such termination the Extension Option shall simultaneously terminate and become null and void.
(j) Time. Time is of the essence of the Extension Option granted hereunder.
1.5 RENT. The Rent reserved under this Lease, for the Term thereof, shall consist of the following:
(a) Base Rent as set forth in the Table for the various spaces and periods described therein per month, which shall be payable in advance on the first day of each and every calendar month during the Term of this Lease, except that Tenant shall pay the first months Base Rent due under the Lease upon the execution and delivery of this Lease by Tenant; and
(b) Additional Rent consisting of any and all other sums of money as shall become payable by Tenant to Landlord hereunder; and Landlord shall have the same remedies for default in the payment of Additional Rent as for a default in payment of Base Rent).
1.5.1 Payment of Rent. Tenant shall pay the Base Rent and Additional Rent promptly when due, without demand therefor and without any abatement, deduction, or setoff whatsoever, except as may be expressly provided in this Lease. Tenant shall pay the Rent to Landlord, in lawful money of the United States of America, at Landlords office at the Complex or at such other place, or to such agent and at such place, as Landlord may designate by notice to Tenant. If the Commencement Date occurs on a day other than the first day of a calendar month, the Base Rent for such calendar month shall be prorated based on a 30-day month, and the balance of the first months Base Rent theretofore paid shall be credited against the next monthly installment of Base Rent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Tenant shall pay the first months Base Rent due hereunder, together with the Security Deposit due under§ 5.1 below, upon Tenants execution and delivery of this Lease to Landlord.
1.5.2 Interest and Late Charges. If Tenant fails to pay any Rent when due, the unpaid amounts shall bear interest from the due date until paid at a rate per annum equal to the Prime Rate plus five percent (5%) or, if less, at the highest rate of interest permitted by applicable law. As used herein, Prime Rate means the prime rate published in the Money Rates section of the Wall Street Journal (Western edition) as the same may change from time to time or in a similar publication if the Wall Street Journal ceases publication or ceases publication of its Money Rates section during the Term. Tenant acknowledges that the late payment of any monthly Rent will cause Landlord to lose the use of that money and incur costs and expenses not contemplated under this Lease, including administrative and collection costs and processing and account expenses, the exact amount of which it is difficult to ascertain. Therefore, in addition to interest, if any such installment is not received by Landlord within five (5) days from the date it is due, Tenant shall pay Landlord a late charge equal to ten percent (10%) of such installment. Landlord and Tenant agree that this late charge represents a reasonable estimate of such costs and expenses and is fair compensation to Landlord for the loss suffered from such nonpayment by Tenant. In addition, any check returned by the bank for any reason will be considered late and will be subject to all late charges plus an additional returned check fee of Twenty Dollars ($20.00). After two such occasions upon which checks have been returned in any twelve-month period, Landlord will have the right to require payment by a cashiers check or money order. Acceptance of any interest or late charge shall not constitute a waiver of Tenants default with respect to such nonpayment by Tenant nor prevent Landlord from exercising any other rights or remedies available to Landlord under this Lease or at law or in equity, unless the payment of such interest and late charges is accompanied by all rentals then due and owning (notwithstanding anything to the contrary in§ 20.2.1 below).
1.6 PROPERTY. For the purposes of this Lease, the Property shall mean the Building and any common or public areas or facilities, easements, corridors, lobbies, sidewalks, loading areas, driveways, landscaped areas, skywalk, parking garages and lots, and any and all other structures or facilities operated or maintained in connection with or for the benefit of the Building, and all parcels or tracts of land on which all or any portion of the Building or any of the other foregoing items are located, and any fixtures, machinery, equipment, apparatus, Systems and Equipment (as defined in § 1.6.5 below), furniture and other personal property located thereon or therein and used in connection therewith, whether title is held by Landlord or its affiliates.

1.6.1 Common Areas. Tenant and its agents, employees, and invitees shall have the non-exclusive right with others designated by Landlord to the free use of the common areas in the Property and the Complex for the common areas intended and normal purpose. The term common areas shall mean elevators, sidewalks, parking areas, driveways, hallways, stairways, public restrooms, common entrances, lobbies, and other similar public areas and access ways.
1.6.2 Athletic Facility. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the common areas do not include the Buildings athletic facility (the Athletic Facility), which is an unsupervised and unattended weight and exercise room and shower facility. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord presently makes available (but is not obligated under this Lease to make available) the Athletic Facility for the general use of all tenants and their officers and employees, subject to such rules and regulations as Landlord may impose from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion regarding the use thereof. Tenant shall cause each of its officers and employees using the Athletic Facility to sign and deliver to Landlord an Athletic Facility Use Agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D, as such form may be revised by Landlord from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion.

Landlord shall have the right to limit the use of the Athletic Facility in any manner it may deem necessary, or to discontinue the Athletic Facility altogether, at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion, and neither Tenant nor its officers or employees shall be entitled to any compensation, credit, allowance, or offset of expenses or Rent as a result of any such limitation or discontinuance.

1.6.5 Systems and Equipment.

The Work has been substantially completed as determined by Landlord its reasonable discretion and, if applicable, Landlords architect has issued a certificate of substantial completion; and it shall be so deemed notwithstanding the fact that minor or insubstantial details of construction, mechanical adjustment, or decoration remain to be performed, the noncompletion of which does not materially interfere with Tenants beneficial use of the Premises for their intended purposes;

(a) Increased Operating Expenses. An amount equal to Tenants Pro Rata Share of that portion of Operating Expenses paid by Landlord during each Adjustment Period which exceeds the amount of Base Operating Expenses (as all of such terms are defined in § 4.2 below); and
(b) Increased Taxes. An amount equal to Tenants Pro Rata Share of that portion of Real Estate Taxes paid by Landlord during each Adjustment Period which exceeds the amount of Base Real Estate Taxes (as all of such terms are defined in § 4.2 below).
Tenants Pro Rata Share of (i) such increase in Operating Expenses over the Base Operating Expenses and (ii) such increase in Real Estate Taxes over the Base Real Estate Taxes is sometimes referred to collectively herein as the Rental Adjustment.
4.2 DEFINITIONS. For the purposes of this Lease, the following definitions shall apply:

(c) Tenants Pro Rata Share. Tenants Pro Rata Share as to the Building is the percentage labeled as such in the Table in § 1.2 and is calculated by dividing the agreed rentable area of the Premises (numerator) by the agreed rentable area of the Property (denominator) and expressing the resulting quotient as a percentage. Tenants Pro Rata Share as to the Complex is the percentage labeled as such in the Table in§ 1.2 as is calculated by dividing the agreed rentable area of the Premises (numerator) by the agreed rentable area of the Complex (denominator) and expressing the resulting quotient as a percentage. Tenants Pro Rata Share shall be increased during the Term in proportion to any increase in the area of the Premises in accordance with the formula stated herein.

4.3 MANNER OF PAYMENT. To provide for current payments of the Rental Adjustment, Tenant shall pay as Additional Rent during each Adjustment Period an amount equal to Landlords estimate of the Rental Adjustment which will be payable by Tenant for such Adjustment Period. Such payments shall be made in monthly installments, commencing on the first day of the month following the month in which Landlord notifies Tenant of the amount it is to pay hereunder and continuing until the first day of the month following the month in which Landlord gives Tenant a new notice of the estimated Rental Adjustment. It is the intention hereunder to estimate from time to time the amount of Tenants Rental Adjustment for each Adjustment Period and then to effect a reconciliation in the following year based on the actual expenses incurred for the preceding Adjustment Period, as provided in 4.4 below.
4.4 RECONCILIATION. On or before the first day of April of each year after the first Adjustment Period (or as soon thereafter as is practical), Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a statement (the Statement) setting forth the Rental Adjustment for the preceding year. If the actual Rental Adjustment for the preceding Adjustment Period exceeds the total of the estimated monthly payments made by Tenant for such Adjustment Period, Tenant shall pay Landlord the amount of the deficiency within ten (10) days of the receipt of the Statement. If such total of estimated payments made exceeds the actual Rental Adjustment for such Adjustment Period, then Tenant shall receive a credit for the difference against payments of Rent next due. If the credit is due from Landlord on the Expiration Date, Landlord promptly shall pay Tenant the amount of the credit, less any Rent then due. The obligations of Tenant and Landlord to make payments required under this § 4.4 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Term of this Lease.
4.4.1 Changes in Method. So long as Tenants obligations hereunder are not materially adversely affected thereby, Landlord reserves the right reasonably to change from time to time the manner or timing of the foregoing payments. In lieu of providing one Statement covering Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses, Landlord may provide separate statements, at the same or different times. No delay by Landlord in providing the Statement (or separate statements) shall be deemed a default by Landlord or a waiver of Landlords right to require payment of Tenants obligations for actual or estimated Real Estate Taxes or Operating Expenses. In no event shall a decrease in Real Estate Taxes or Operating Expenses below the Base Operating Expenses or Base Real Estate Taxes ever decrease the monthly Base Rent or give rise to a credit in favor of Tenant.
4.4.2 Proration of Rental Adjustment. If the Term does not commence on January 1 or does not end on December 31, Tenants obligations to pay estimated and actual amounts towards Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses for such first or final calendar year shall be prorated to reflect the portion of such year(s) included in the Term. Such proration shall be made by multiplying the total estimated or actual (as the case may be) Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses for such calendar year(s), as well as the Base Real Estate Taxes and Base Operating Expenses, by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of days of the Term during such calendar year, and the denominator of which shall be three hundred sixty-five (365).
4.5 GROSS-UP. If the Building is less than ninety-five percent (95%) occupied during the Base Period or any Adjustment Period, then Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes for the Base Period and/or such Adjustment Period shall be grossed up to that amount of Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes that, using reasonable projections, would normally have been incurred during the Base Period and/or such Adjustment Period if the Building had been ninety-five percent (95%) occupied during the Base Period and/or such Adjustment Period, as determined in accordance with sound accounting and management practices, consistently applied. Only those component elements or items of expense of Operating Expenses and Real Estate Taxes that are affected by variations in occupancy levels shall be grossed up.
4.6 ADJUSTMENT OF BASE OPERATING EXPENSES. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease, the parties agree that Base Operating Expenses and Operating Expenses for any subsequent Adjustment Period (herein called Subsequent Operating Expenses) shall be subject to further adjustment by Landlord as follows:
(a) Exclusion of Capital Expenditures. Landlord may exclude from Base Operating Expenses capital expenditures otherwise permitted, provided Landlord shall also exclude any amortization of such expenditures from Subsequent Operating Expenses.
(b) Elimination of Recurring Expenses. If Landlord eliminates from any Subsequent Operating Expenses a category of recurring expenses previously included in Base Operating Expenses, Landlord may subtract such category from Base Operating Expenses commencing with such subsequent Adjustment Period.
(c) New Recurring Expenses. If Landlord includes a new category of recurring Subsequent Operating Expenses not previously included in Base Operating Expenses, Landlord shall also include an amount (the Assumed Base Amount) for such category in Base Operating Expenses commencing in such subsequent Adjustment Period.
(d) Assumed Base Amount. The Assumed Base Amount under§ 4.6(c) above shall be the annualized amount of expenses for such new category in the first Adjustment Period it is included, reduced by an amount determined in Landlords sole good faith discretion (but in no event by an amount less than five percent (5% )) for each full or partial Adjustment Period that has elapsed during the Term of the Lease before such Adjustment Period.
4.7 ADJUSTMENT OF REAL ESTATE TAXES. If Base Real Estate Taxes are reduced as the result of protest, by means of agreement, as the result of legal proceedings, or otherwise, Landlord may adjust Tenants obligations for Real Estate Taxes in all years affected by any refund of taxes following the Base Tax Year; and Tenant shall pay Landlord within thirty (30)days after notice any additional amount required by such adjustment for any Adjustment Periods that have theretofore occurred. Tenant shall be entitled to receive a share of any refund or abatement of Real Estate Taxes received by Landlord to the extent of and in proportion to Tenants actual contribution to the amount of Real Estate Taxes paid by Landlord during the period to which such refund or abatement relates, but in no event shall Tenant be entitled to any refund with respect to Real Estate Taxes paid by Landlord during Tenants Base Tax Year. If Real Estate Taxes for any Adjustment Period during the Term or any extension thereof shall be increased after payment thereof by Landlord for any reason, including error or reassessment by applicable governmental authorities, Tenant shall pay Landlord upon demand Tenants Pro Rata Share of such increased Real Estate Taxes. Tenant shall pay increased Real Estate Taxes whether Real Estate Taxes are increased as a result of increases in the assessment or valuation of the Property (whether based on a sale, change in ownership, refinancing of the Property, or otherwise), increases in the tax rates, reduction or elimination of any rollbacks or other deductions available under current law, scheduled reductions of any tax abatement, as a result of the elimination, invalidity, or withdrawal of any tax abatement, or for any other cause whatsoever. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Real Estate Taxes shall be paid based on assessments or bills by a governmental authority using a fiscal year other than a calendar year, Landlord may elect to average the assessments or bills for the subject calendar year, based on the number of months of such calendar year included in each such assessment or bill.
4.8 ALLOCATION WTIHIN COMPLEX. So long as the Property shall be part of the Complex collectively owned or managed by Landlord or its affiliates or collectively managed by Landlords managing agent, Landlord may allocate Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses within the Complex and between the buildings and structures comprising the Complex and the parcels on which they are located, in accordance with sound accounting and management principles. In the alternative, Landlord shall have the right to determine, in accordance with sound accounting and management principles, Tenants Pro Rata Share of Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses based upon the totals of each of the same for all such buildings and structures, the land constituting parcels on which the same are located, and all related facilities, including common areas and easements, corridors, lobbies, sidewalks, elevators, loading areas, parking facilities, driveways, and other appurtenances and public areas, in which event Tenants Pro Rata Share shall be based on the ratio of the rentable area of the Premises to the rentable area of all buildings in the Complex.
4.9 LANDLORDS RECORDS. Landlord shall maintain records with respect to Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses and determine the same in accordance with sound accounting and management practices, consistently applied. Although this Lease contemplates the computation of Real Estate Taxes and Operating Expenses on a cash basis, Landlord shall make reasonable and appropriate accrual adjustments to ensure that each Adjustment Period includes substantially the same recurring items. Landlord reserves the right to change to a full accrual system of accounting so long as the same is consistently applied and Tenants obligations are not materially adversely affected. Tenant or its representative shall have the right to examine such records, upon reasonable prior written notice specifying such records Tenant desires to examine, during normal business hours at the place or places where such records are normally kept, by sending such notice no later than forty-five (45) days following the furnishing of the Statement.
4.10 OTHER TAXES PAYABLE BY TENANT. In addition to the Base Rent and any other charges to be paid by Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall, as an element of Rent, reimburse Landlord upon demand for any and all taxes payable by Landlord (other than net income taxes) which are not otherwise reimbursable under this Lease, whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties, where such taxes are upon, measured by, or reasonably attributable to (A) the cost or value of Tenants equipment, furniture, fixtures, and other personal property located at the Premises, or the cost or value of any improvements made in or to the Premises by or for Tenant, regardless of whether title to such improvements is held by Tenant or Landlord; (B) the gross or net Rent payable under this Lease, including any rental or gross receipts tax levied by any taxing authority with respect to the receipt of the Rent hereunder; (C) the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use, or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any portion thereof; or (D) this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring an interest or an estate in the Premises. Tenant shall pay any rent tax, sales tax, service tax, transfer tax, value-added tax, or any other applicable tax on the Rent or services herein or otherwise respecting this Lease.
4.11 RENT CONTROL. If the amount of Rent or any other payment due under this Lease violates the terms of any governmental restrictions on such Rent or payment, then the Rent or payment due during the period of such restrictions shall be the maximum amount allowable under those restrictions. Upon termination of the restrictions, Landlord shall, to the extent it is legally permitted, recover from Tenant the difference between the amounts received during the period of the restrictions and the amounts Landlord would have received had there been no restrictions.
5 SECURITY DEPOSIT
5.1 DEPOSIT FOR SECURITY. Tenant shall deposit with Landlord the amount of Seventy Thousand Six Hundred Eighty-Three Dollars and Fifty-Two Cents ($70,683.52) (the Security Deposit) upon Tenants execution and delivery of this Lease to Landlord. The Security Deposit shall serve as security for the prompt, full, and faithful performance by Tenant of the terms and provisions of this Lease, including the value of future rents as damages in accordance with California Civil Code § 1951.2, as set forth in§ 20.3 below. Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from Landlords general funds or pay interest on the Security Deposit.
5.1.1 Application of Deposit. In the event that Tenant is in Default hereunder and fails to cure within any applicable time permitted under this Lease, or in the event that Tenant owes any amounts to Landlord upon the expiration of this Lease, Landlord may use or apply the whole or any part of the Security Deposit for the payment of Tenants obligations hereunder. The use or application of the Security Deposit or any portion thereof shall not prevent Landlord from exercising any other right or remedy provided hereunder or under any Law and shall not be construed as liquidated damages.
5.1.2 Restoration of Full Deposit. In the event the Security Deposit is reduced by such use or application, Tenant shall deposit with Landlord, within ten (10) days after written notice, an amount sufficient to restore the full amount of the Security Deposit. If the Premises shall be expanded at any time, or if the Term shall be extended at any increased rate of Rent, the Security Deposit shall thereupon be proportionately increased.
5.1.3 Disposition of Security Deposit. After the Expiration Date or any earlier termination of the Lease, any remaining portion of the Security Deposit shall be returned to Tenant after deduction of all amounts due as Rent or otherwise. Tenant expressly waives the provisions of § 1950.7 of the California Civil Code.
6 COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS
6.1 TENANTS COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS. Tenant shall use the Premises in compliance with all applicable federal, state, county, and local governmental and municipal laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, regulations, codes, decrees, orders, and other such requirements, and decisions by courts in cases where such decisions are considered binding precedents in the State of California (the State), and decisions of federal courts applying the laws of the State (collectively Laws). Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, promptly comply with each and all of such Laws, and also with the requirements of any board of fire underwriters or other similar body now or hereafter constituted to deal with the condition, use, or occupancy of the Premises, except in the case of required structural changes not triggered by Tenants change in use of the Premises or Tenants alterations, additions, or improvements therein. Tenant shall comply with all applicable Laws regarding the physical condition of the Premises, but only to the extent that the applicable Laws pertain to the particular manner in which Tenant uses the Premises or the particular use to which Tenant puts the Premises, if different from that permitted under Article 2 of this Lease. Tenant shall also comply with all applicable Laws which do not relate to the physical condition of the Premises and with which only the occupant can comply, such as laws governing maximum occupancy, workplace smoking, VDT regulations, and illegal business operations, such as gambling. The judgement of any court of competent jurisdiction or the admission of Tenant in any judicial action, regardless of whether Landlord is a party thereto, that Tenant has violated any of such Laws shall be conclusive of that fact as between Landlord and Tenant.
6.1.1 Code Costs. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article 6, if the requirement of any public authority obligates either Landlord or Tenant to expend money in order to bring the Premises and/or any area of the Property into compliance with Laws as a result of (a) Tenants particular use or alteration of the Premises; (b) Tenants change in the use of the Premises; (c) the manner of conduct of Tenants business or operation of its installations, equipment, or other property therein; (d) any cause or condition created by or at the instance of Tenant, other than by Landlords performance of any work for or on behalf of Tenant; or (e) breach of any of Tenants obligations hereunder, then Tenant shall bear all costs (Code Costs) of bringing the Premises and/or Property into compliance with Laws, whether such Code Costs are related to structural or nonstructural elements of the Premises or Property.
6.2 LANDLORDS COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS. Landlord represents that on the Commencement Date Landlord has no actual knowledge of any violation of any applicable Laws respecting the Premises. During the Term Landlord shall comply with all applicable Laws regarding the Premises and Property, except to the extent Tenant must comply under§ 6.1 above.
7 HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
7.1 REGULATION OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. Tenant shall not transport, use, store, maintain, generate, manufacture, handle, dispose, release, or discharge any Hazardous Material (as defined below) upon or about the Property, nor permit Tenants employees, agents, contractors, and other occupants of the Premises to engage in such activities upon or about the Property. However, the foregoing provisions shall not prohibit the transportation to and from, and use, storage, maintenance, and handling within, the Premises of substances customarily used in offices, provided all of the following conditions are met:

(b) such substances shall not be disposed of, released, or discharged on the Property and shall be transported to and from the Premises in compliance with all applicable Laws, and as Landlord shall reasonably require;
(c) if any applicable Laws or Landlords trash removal contractor requires that any such substances be disposed of separately from ordinary trash, Tenant shall make arrangements at Tenants expense for such disposal directly with a qualified and licensed disposal company at a lawful disposal site (subject to scheduling and approval by Landlord), and shall ensure that disposal occurs frequently enough to prevent unnecessary storage of such substances in the Premises; and
(d) any remaining such substances shall be completely, properly, and lawfully removed from the Property upon expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
7.2 DEFINITION OF HAZARDOUS MATERIAL. The term Hazardous Material for purposes hereof shall mean any chemical, substance, material, or waste or component thereof which is now or hereafter listed, defined, or regulated as a hazardous or toxic chemical, substance, material, or waste or component thereof by any federal, state, or local governing or regulatory body having jurisdiction, or which would trigger any employee or community right-to-know requirements adopted by any such body, or for which any such body has adopted any requirements for the preparation or distribution of an MSDS.

Such clean up and removal work shall be subject to Landlords prior written approval (except in emergencies), and shall include any testing, investigation, and the preparation and implementation of any remedial action plan required by any governmental body having jurisdiction or reasonably required by Landlord. If Tenant shall fail to comply with the provisions of this § 7.2 within five (5) days after written notice by Landlord, or such shorter time as may be required by Laws or in order to minimize any hazard to persons or property, Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to) arrange for such compliance directly or as Tenants agent through contractors or other parties selected by Landlord, at Tenants expense (without limiting Landlords other remedies under this Lease or applicable Laws).
7.6 CASUALTY DAMAGE. If any Hazardous Material is released, discharged, or disposed of on or about the Property and such release, discharge, or disposal is not caused by Tenant or other occupants of the Premises, or their employees, agents, or contractors, such release, discharge, or disposal shall be deemed casualty damage under Article 15 to the extent that the Premises or common areas serving the Premises are affected thereby; in such case, Landlord and Tenant shall have the obligations and rights respecting such casualty damage provided under Article 15 of this Lease.
7.7 REFRIGERANT. Tenant shall not install any refrigerant-containing systems or equipment, including refrigerators, freezers, supplemental HVAC systems or self-contained air conditioners, without Landlords prior approval, which Landlord may withhold in its sole discretion. Unless Tenant shall have obtained Landlords prior written approval to install existing equipment after an inspection, at Tenants sole cost and expense, by Landlords engineer for defects and proper proposed installation in the Premises, all refrigerant-containing equipment and/or systems which Tenant installs in the Premises shall be new. Whether Tenants refrigerant-containing equipment or systems are defective and are properly installed shall be determined at the sole discretion of Landlords engineer. If Tenant wishes to install any refrigerant-containing equipment or systems, Tenant shall obtain and provide Landlord with copies of all required permits associated with such equipment or systems. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall have the right, subject to Landlords reasonable approval, to install one or more standard food refrigerators in the Premises.
7.7.1 Removal of Refrigerant.

Tenant and Tenants contractors shall comply with all legal requirements, industry practices and rules established by Landlord in performing such removal work. Tenant shall repair any damage to the Property or the Systems and Equipment associated with such removal, and Tenant shall be responsible for the costs associated with restoring the Property to the condition which existed immediately prior to any modification undertaken by Landlord in order to accommodate Tenants refrigerant-containing equipment or systems.

None of the same shall be deemed an eviction or disturbance of Tenants use and possession of the Premises or any part thereof, shall render Landlord liable to Tenant for abatement of Rent, or shall relieve Tenant from performance of Tenants obligations under this Lease. Landlord in no event shall be liable for damages by reason of loss of profits, business interruption, or other compensatory or consequential damages.

Any claim to a lien or encumbrance upon the Property or Premises arising in connection with any Work on or respecting the Premises not performed by or at the request of Landlord shall be null and void, or, at Landlords option, shall attach only against Tenants interest in the Premises and shall in all respects be subordinate to Landlords title to the Property and Premises.
9.8 NOTICES OF VIOLATION. Tenant, at its expense, and with diligence and dispatch, shall procure the cancellation or discharge of all notices of violation arising from or otherwise connected with Tenants Changes which shall be issued by any governmental, public, or quasi-public authority having or asserting jurisdiction.

9.9 INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS. Tenant agrees that the exercise of its rights pursuant to the provisions of this Article 9 or any other provision of this Lease shall not be done in a manner which would create any work stoppage, picketing, labor disruption, or dispute or violate Landlords union contracts affecting the Property and/or Complex or interfere with the business of Landlord or any Tenant or occupant of the Building. Tenant shall, immediately upon notice from Landlord, cease any activity, whether or not permitted by this Lease, giving rise to such condition.

to the extent that such injury or death is caused by Tenant and/or Tenants Associates, through negligence or otherwise, and is not covered by the insurance Landlord is required to carry under this Lease. Likewise, Tenant agrees to indemnify, defend, protect, and hold Landlord harmless from any Claims for injury or death to persons occurring within the Premises or caused, directly or indirectly, by Tenant or Tenants Associates outside the Premises, except to the extent such injuries or death are caused by Landlord and/ or Landlords Associates, through negligence or otherwise, and are not covered by the insurance Tenant is required to carry under this Lease.
14.4.7 Abatement of Rent. Except as may be expressly provided elsewhere in this Lease, Tenant shall not be entitled to Rent abatement and shall not otherwise have, and hereby releases Landlord from, any Claims resulting from Tenants inability to utilize all or any part of the Premises, except to the extent that Tenant is unable to use all or any part of the Premises and does not use all or any part of the Premises as a result of Landlords intentional decision to refuse to provide access to the Building and/or the Premises and/or to provide services and/ or utilities to Tenant as required to be provided by Landlord to Tenant pursuant to this Lease, where such refusal is not caused by a Force Majeure occurrence.
14.4.8 Availability of Waiver of Subrogation. If an insurance policy cannot be obtained with a waiver of subrogation or is obtainable only by the payment of an additional premium charge above that charged by insurance companies issuing policies without waiver of subrogation, the party undertaking to obtain the insurance shall notify the other party of this fact. The other party shall have a period of ten (10) days after receiving the notice either to place the insurance with a company that is reasonably satisfactory to the other party and that will carry the insurance with a waiver of subrogation at no additional cost or to agree to pay the additional premium if such a policy is obtainable at additional cost. If the insurance cannot be obtained or the party in whose favor a waiver of subrogation is desired refuses to pay the additional premium charged, the other party is relieved of the obligation to obtain a waiver of subrogation with respect to the particular insurance involved.
14.5 OTHER CASES OF DAMAGE OR INJURY. In all cases not covered by the foregoing provisions of this Article 14, Tenant hereby assumes all risk of damage to property or injury to persons in, upon, or about the Premises from any cause other than the active negligence or intentional misconduct of Landlord and its agent or employees. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Landlord shall not be liable for injury or damage which may be sustained by the person, goods, wares, merchandise, or property of Tenant or Tenants Associates or any other person in or about the Premises caused by or resulting from fire, steam, electricity, gas, water or rain, which may leak or flow from or into any part of the Premises, or from the breakage, leakage, obstruction, or other defects of the Systems and Equipment, pipes, sprinklers, wires, INC, appliances, plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, or lighting fixtures of the same, whether the damage or injury results from conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other portions of the Property, the Complex, or from other sources. Landlord shall not be liable for any damages arising from any act or omission of any other tenant or occupant of the Property or Complex. In all cases not covered by the foregoing provisions of this Article 14, Tenant shall indemnify, defend, protect, and hold Landlord harmless against (a) any and all Claims arising from any death or injury to any person or damage to any property whatsoever occurring in, on, or about the Premises or any part thereof, and (b) any and all Claims occurring in, on or about any of the Common Areas, the Property, or the Complex, when such injury or damage is caused in whole or in part by the act, negligence, fault, or omission of any duty with respect to the same by Tenant or Tenants Associates. In all cases not covered by the foregoing provisions of this Article 14, Tenant shall further indemnify, defend, protect, and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all Claims arising from any breach or default in the performance of any obligation on Tenants part to be performed under this Lease, or arising from any act or negligence of Tenant or Tenants Associates, and from and against all costs, attorneys fees, expenses, and liabilities incurred in connection with any such Claim or any action or proceeding brought thereon. In case any action or proceeding be brought against Landlord by reason of any such Claim, Tenant, upon notice from Landlord, shall defend the same at
Tenants expense by counsel reasonably satisfactory to Landlord; provided, however, that Tenant shall not be liable in any case for damage to property or death or injury to person(s) occasioned by the active negligence or intentional misconduct of Landlord or Landlords Associates, unless covered by insurance Tenant is required to provide.
15 DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION
15.1 LOSS COVERED BY INSURANCE. If at any time prior to the expiration or termination of this Lease the Premises or the Property is wholly or partially damaged or destroyed by any casualty which results in a loss to Landlord that is fully covered by insurance maintained by Landlord or for Landlords benefit (or required to be maintained by Landlord pursuant to§ 14.3 above), which casualty renders the Premises totally or partially inaccessible or unusable by Tenant in the ordinary conduct of Tenants business, the parties agree that the following provisions shall modify their obligations under this Lease after such damage or destruction.
15.1.1 Repairs Which Can Be Completed Within Six (6) Months. Within thirty (30) days after Tenants written notice to Landlord of such damage or destruction, Landlord shall provide Tenant with notice of its determination of whether the damage or destruction can be repaired within six (6) months after the commencement of the work of repairing such damage or destruction without the payment of overtime or other premiums. If all repairs to Premises or Property can, in Landlords judgement, be completed within six (6) months following the date of the commencement of the work of repairing such damage or destruction without the payment of overtime or other premiums, Landlord shall, at Landlords expense, repair the same; and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect, except that a proportionate reduction of the Base Rent shall be allowed Tenant to the extent that the Premises shall be rendered inaccessible or unusable by Tenant and are not used by Tenant during the period of time that such portion is unusable or inaccessible and not used by Tenant.
15.1.2 Repairs Which Cannot Be Completed Within Six (6) Months. If all such repairs to the Property and Premises cannot, in Landlords judgement, be completed within six (6) months following the commencement of the work of repairing such damage or destruction without the payment of overtime or other premiums, Landlord shall notify Tenant of such determination; and in such an event, either Landlord or Tenant may, at its option, upon written notice to the other party given within sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such damage or destruction, elect to terminate this Lease as of the date of the occurrence of such damage or destruction. In the event that neither Landlord nor Tenant elects to terminate the Lease in accordance with the foregoing provisions, then Landlord shall, at Landlords expense, repair such damage or destruction; and in such event, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, except that the Base Rent shall be proportionately reduced as provided in§ 15.1.1 above; provided, however, that if any such repair is not commenced by Landlord within ninety (90) days after the occurrence of such damage or destruction or is not substantially completed by Landlord within nine (9) months after the occurrence of such damage or destruction, then in either such event Tenant may, at its option, upon written notice to Landlord, elect to terminate this Lease as of the date of Landlords receipt of such notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall have no right to terminate this Lease in the situation just described if all of the following conditions are met: (x) Landlord shall have informed Tenant in its notice of determination that the repair of such damage or destruction could not be substantially completed by Landlord within nine (9) months after the occurrence of such damage or destruction; (y) Tenant shall not have elected to terminate the Lease by written notice delivered to Landlord within sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such damage or destruction; and (z) Landlord shall have commenced the work of repairing such damage or destruction.
15.2 LOSS NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE. If at any time prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease the Premises or the Property is totally or partially damaged or destroyed in connection with a casualty, which loss to Landlord is not fully covered by insurance maintained by Landlord or for Landlords benefit (or required to be maintained by Landlord pursuant to § 14.3 above); and if such damage renders the Premises inaccessible or unusable to Tenant for their intended purpose in the ordinary course of its business, Landlord may, at its option, upon written notice given to Tenant within sixty (60) days after Tenants written notice to Landlord of the occurrence of such damage or destruction, either (a) elect to repair or to restore such damage or destruction or (b) elect to terminate this Lease. If Landlord elects to repair or restore such damage or destruction, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, except that the Base Rent shall be proportionately reduced as provided in § 15.1.1 above. If Landlord does not elect by notice to Tenant to repair such damage, the Lease shall terminate as of the date of Tenants receipt of Landlords notice of election to terminate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if all repairs to the Premises or the Building cannot, in Landlords reasonable judgement, be completed within six (6) months following the date of the commencement of the work of repairing such damage or destruction without the payment of overtime or other premiums, then either Landlord or Tenant may at the option of either, upon written notice to the other party given within sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such damage or destruction, elect to terminate this Lease as of the date of such notice.
15.3 DESTRUCTION DURING FINAL YEAR. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in§§ 15.1 and15.2, if the Premises or the Building are wholly or partially damaged or destroyed within the final twelve (12) months of the Term of this Lease or, if an applicable renewal option has been exercised, during the last year of any renewal term, in such a way that Tenant shall be prevented from using the Premises for at least thirty (30) consecutive days as a result of such damage or destruction, then either Landlord or Tenant may, at the option of either, by written notice to the other party delivered within sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such damage or destruction, elect to terminate the Lease as of the date of such notice.
15.4 DESTRUCTION OF TENANTS PROPERTY. Under no circumstances shall Landlord be required to repair any injury or damage to, or make any repairs to or replacements of, Tenants Property. However, as part of Operating Expenses, Landlord shall cause to be insured the Improvements in the Premises which do not consist of Tenants Property and shall cause such Improvements to be repaired and restored at Landlords sole expense, except that Tenant shall pay any applicable deductible. Landlord shall have no responsibility for any contents placed or kept in or on the Premises or the Property by Tenant or Tenants employees or invitees or any other person claiming through Tenant.
15.5 EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. Landlord and Tenant agree that their respective rights and obligations in the event of any damage or destruction of the Premises, Property, or Complex shall be governed exclusively by this Lease. Tenant, as a material inducement to Landlord entering into this Lease, irrevocably waives and releases Tenants rights under California Civil Code§§ 1932(2), 1933(4), and 1942, as the same may be modified or replaced hereafter. No damages, compensation, setoff, allowance, or claim shall be payable by Landlord for any inconvenience, interruption, or cessation of Tenants business or any annoyance arising from any damage to or destruction of all or any portion of the Premises, Property, or Complex.
16 EMINENT DOMAIN
16.1 CONDEMNATION. If the whole or any material part of the Premises or Property shall be taken by power of eminent domain or condemned by any competent authority for any public or quasi-public use or purpose; or if any adjacent property or street shall be so taken, condemned, reconfigured, or vacated by such authority in such manner as to require the use, reconstruction, or remodeling of any part of the Premises or Property; or if Landlord shall grant a deed or other instrument in lieu of such taking by eminent domain or condemnation (collectively Takings), Landlord shall have the option to terminate this Lease upon ninety (90) days notice, provided such notice is given no later than one hundred and eighty (180) days after the date of such Taking. Tenant shall have reciprocal termination rights, on the same terms and conditions and to be exercised in the same manner as the foregoing sentence provides, if the whole or any material part of the Premises is permanently taken, or if access to the Premises is permanently materially impaired.
16.2 RENTAL APPORTIONMENT. All Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination or the date of such Taking, whichever shall first occur. If any part of the Premises shall be taken, and this Lease shall not be so terminated, the Rent shall be proportionately abated.
16.3 AWARDS AND DAMAGES. Landlord shall be entitled to receive the entire award or payment in connection with any Taking, except that Tenant shall have the right to file any separate claim available to Tenant for any taking of Tenants personal property and fixtures belonging to Tenant and removable by Tenant upon expiration of the Term, and for moving expenses, so long as such claim does not diminish the award available to Landlord and such claim is payable separately to Tenant.
16.4 TEMPORARY CONDEMNATION. If part or all of the Premises are condemned for a limited period of time (Temporary Condemnation), this Lease shall remain in effect. The Rent and Tenants obligations for the part of the Premises taken shall abate during the Temporary Condemnation in proportion to the part of the Premises that Tenant is unable to use in its business operations as a result of the Temporary Condemnation. Landlord shall receive the entire award for any Temporary Condemnation.
17 ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
17.1 CONSENT REQUIRED FOR TRANSFER. Tenant agrees that it shall not assign, sublet, mortgage, hypothecate, or encumber this Lease, nor permit or allow the Premises or any part thereof to be used or occupied by others, without the prior written consent of Landlord in each instance. The actions described in the foregoing sentence are referred to collectively herein as Transfers and individually as a Transfer. If the Premises or any part thereof be sublet or occupied by anybody other than Tenant, Landlord may, after default by Tenant, collect rent from the subtenant or occupant and apply the net amount collected to the Rent herein reserved; but no Transfer, occupancy, or collection shall be deemed a waiver of the provisions hereof, the acceptance of the subtenant or occupant as tenant, or a release of Tenant from the further performance hereunder by Tenant. The consent by Landlord to a Transfer shall not relieve Tenant from obtaining the Landlords express written consent to any further Transfer. In no event shall any permitted sublessee assign or encumber its sublease or further sublet all or any portion of its sublet space, or otherwise suffer or permit the sublet space or any part thereof to be used or occupied by others, without Landlords prior written consent in each instance.
17.1.1 Corporate Transferor. If Tenant is a corporation, the provisions of§ 17.1 shall apply to a transfer (by one or more transfers) of a majority of the stock of Tenant as if such transfer of a majority of the stock of Tenant were an assignment of this Lease.
17.2 NOTICE OF INTENT TO TRANSFER. If Tenant shall at any time or times during the Term of this Lease desire to assign this Lease or sublet all or part of the Premises, Tenant shall give notice thereof (the Transfer Notice) to Landlord, which notice shall set forth all of the following:
(a) the proposed terms of the assignment or subletting, including (i) the effective or commencement date thereof, which shall be not less than thirty (30) nor more than one hundred eighty (180) days after the giving of such notice; (ii) in the case of a proposed assignment, the consideration therefor; and (iii) in the case of a proposed subletting, the rental rate to be paid by the proposed subtenant (including any escalation or Additional Rent payable), the term of the proposed sublease (including any renewal options), any work to be performed or paid for by Tenant, the amount of any security deposit, the cost and extent of any so-called take-over obligations to be assumed by Tenant on behalf of such subtenant, the amount of any rent concessions to be granted by Tenant, and any other additional monetary or so-called business terms or conditions;
(b) a statement setting forth in reasonable detail the identity of the proposed assignee or subtenant, the nature of its business, and its proposed use of the Premises; and
(c) current financial information with respect to the proposed assignee or subtenant, including its most recent financial report, and any other information which may reasonably be required by Landlord.
17.3 LANDLORDS RECAPTURE RIGHT. The Transfer Notice shall be deemed an offer from Tenant to Landlord whereby Landlord (or Landlords designee) may, at its option, terminate this Lease as to all or the affected portion of the Premises (as the case may be) as of the effective date of the proposed Transfer. Landlord may exercise its recapture right by notice to Tenant at any time within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of Tenants Transfer Notice; and during such thirty-day period Tenant shall not assign this Lease nor sublet such space to any person.
17.3.1 Date of Termination. If Landlord exercises its option to terminate this Lease as provided in§ 17.3 above, this Lease shall end and expire on the date that such Transfer was to be effective or commence, as the case may be, and the Base Rent and Additional Rent shall be paid and apportioned to such date.
17.4 CONDITIONS OF CONSENT. If Landlord does not exercise its recapture right pursuant to § 17.3 above, and providing that Tenant is not in default of any of Tenants obligations under this Lease after notice and the expiration of any applicable grace period, Landlords consent (which must be in writing and in form reasonably satisfactory to Landlord) to the proposed assignment or sublease shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, provided the following conditions are met:
(a) Tenant shall have complied with the provisions of§ 17.2 above, and Landlord shall not have exercised its recapture right pursuant to § 17.3 above within the time permitted therefor;
(b) In Landlords reasonable judgement the proposed assignee or subtenant is engaged in a business which would use the Premises, or the relevant part thereof, in a manner which is in keeping with the then-current standards of the Building, is limited to the use expressly permitted under this Lease, and will not violate any negative covenant or other restriction or agreement as to use contained in any other lease of space in the Complex;

(k) The sublease shall not allow the use of the Premises or any part thereof for (i) the sale of food for on or off-premises consumption or (ii) use by a foreign or domestic governmental agency.
Whether or not Landlord shall grant consent, Tenant shall pay $500.00 towards Landlords review and processing expenses in connection with any Transfer request, as well as any reasonable legal fees incurred by Landlord, within thirty (30) days after written request by Landlord
17.5 CONTINUATION OF LEASE TERMS. Each subletting pursuant to this Article 17 shall be subject to all of the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions, and conditions contained in this Lease. Notwithstanding any such subletting to any other subtenant and/or acceptance of Rent by Landlord from any subtenant, Tenant shall remain liable for the payment of the Base Rent and Additional Rent due and to become due hereunder and for the performance of all the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions, and conditions contained in this Lease on the part of Tenant to be performed and all acts and omissions of any licensee or subtenant or anyone claiming under or through any subtenant which shall be in violation of any of the obligations of this Lease; and any such violation shall be deemed to be a violation by Tenant. Tenant further agrees that notwithstanding any such subletting, no other and further subletting of the Premises by Tenant or any person or entity claiming through or under Tenant shall or will be made except upon compliance with and subject to the provisions of this Article 17. If Landlord shall decline to give its consent to any proposed assignment or sublease, or if Landlord shall exercise its recapture right under § 17.3 above, Tenant shall indemnify, defend, protect, and hold Landlord harmless against and from any and all Claims resulting from any Claims that may be made against Landlord by the proposed assignee or sublessee or by any brokers or other persons claiming a commission or similar compensation in connection with the proposed assignment or sublease.

In the event that Landlord consents to a proposed Transfer described in the Transfer Notice and Tenant fails to execute and deliver the assignment or sublease described in the Transfer Notice to which Landlord consented within one hundred twenty (120) days after the giving of such consent, then Tenant shall again comply with all of the provisions and conditions of § 17.2 above before assigning this Lease or subletting all or part of the Premises.
17.7 TRANSFER DOCUMENTATION. With respect to each and every Transfer authorized by Landlord under the provisions of this Lease, it is further agreed as follows:
(a) no subletting shall be for a term ending later than one day prior to the Expiration Date of this Lease;
(b) no sublease shall be valid, and no subtenant shall take possession of the Premises or any part thereof, until an executed counterpart of such sublease has been delivered to Landlord;
(c) each sublease shall provide that it is subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease is or shall be subordinate, and that in the event of termination (whether by voluntary surrender or otherwise), re-entry, or dispossession by Landlord under this Lease, Landlord may, at its option, take over all of the right, title, and interest of Tenant, as sublessor, under such sublease, and such subtenant shall, at Landlords option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to the then-executory provisions of such sublease, except that Landlord shall not be (i) liable for any previous act or omission of Tenant under such sublease; (ii) subject to any offset, credit, or allowance not expressly provided in such sublease which theretofore accrued to such subtenant against Tenant or (iii) bound by any previous modification of such sublease or by any previous prepayment of more than one months rentals; and
(d) each assignment or sublease document must provide that the assignee or subtenant expressly assumes all obligations of the Tenant under the Lease as joint and several obligations without any release of Tenant.

(a) in the case of an assignment, an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of all sums and other considerations paid to Tenant by the assignee for or by reason of such assignment, including sums paid for the sale of Tenants Property, but excluding the following: (i) in the case of a sale of Tenants Property, the then-current net unamortized or undepreciated cost thereof determined on the basis of Tenants federal income tax returns; (ii) then-customary brokerage commissions being paid by Landlord for leasing of space in the Building or, if less, the brokerage commission paid by Tenant in connection with the assignment; (iii) reasonable legal fees and disbursements; and (iv) reasonable amounts paid by Tenant for tenant improvements constructed for the assignee; and
(b) in the case of a sublease, fifty percent (50%) of any rents, additional charge, or other consideration payable under the sublease to Tenant by the subtenant which is in excess of the Base Rent and Additional Rent accruing during the term of the sublease in respect of the subleased space (at the rate per square foot payable by Tenant hereunder) pursuant to the terms hereof, including sums paid for the sale or rental of Tenants Property, but excluding the following: (i) in the case of the sale or lease of Tenants Property, the then-current net unamortized or undepreciated cost thereof determined on the basis of Tenants federal income tax returns; (ii) then-customary brokerage commissions being paid by Landlord for leasing of space in the Building or, if less, the brokerage commission paid by Tenant in connection with the sublease; (iii) reasonable legal fees and disbursements; and (iv) reasonable amounts paid by Tenant for tenant improvements constructed for the subtenant.

17.9 ASSUMPTION BY TRANSFEREE Any Transfer, whether made with Landlords consent pursuant to § 17.1 or without Landlords consent pursuant to§ 17.1.1, shall be made only if, and shall not be effective until, the assignee or subtenant shall execute, acknowledge, and deliver to Landlord an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord under which the assignee or transferee shall assume the obligations of this Lease on the part of Tenant to be performed or observed, from and after the date of Transfer, and whereby the assignee or transferee shall agree that the provisions in § 17.1 shall, notwithstanding such Transfer, continue to be binding upon it in respect of all future Transfers. The original named Tenant covenants that, notwithstanding any Transfer, whether or not in violation of the provisions of this Lease, and notwithstanding the acceptance of Base Rent and/or Additional Rent by Landlord from an assignee, transferee, or any other party, the original named Tenant shall remain fully liable for the payment of the Base Rent and Additional Rent and for the other obligations of this Lease on the part of Tenant to be performed or observed.
17.10 NO WAIVER OR DISCHARGE. The joint and several liability of Tenant and any immediate or remote successor in interest of Tenant and the due performance of the obligations of this Lease on Tenants part to be performed or observed shall not be discharged, released, or impaired in any respect by any agreement or stipulation made by Landlord extending the time of, or modifying any of the obligations of, this Lease, or by any waiver or failure of Landlord to enforce any of the obligations of this Lease.
17.11 LISTING OF NAME. The listing of any name other than that of Tenant, whether on the doors of the Premises or the Building directory, or otherwise, shall not operate to vest any right or interest in this Lease or in the Premises, nor shall it be deemed to be the consent of Landlord to any Transfer of this Lease or to any sublease of the Premises or to the use or occupancy of the Premises by others.
17.12 NET PROFITS AGREEMENT. Anything contained in the foregoing provisions of this Article 17 to the contrary notwithstanding, neither Tenant nor any other person or entity having an interest in the possession, use, occupancy, or utilization of the Premises shall enter into any lease, sublease, license, concession, or other agreement for use, occupancy, or utilization of space in the Premises which provides for rental or other payment for such use, occupancy, or utilization based, in whole or in part, on the net income or profits derived by any person from the premises leased, used, occupied, or utilized (other than an amount based on a fixed percentage or percentages of receipts or sales); and any such purported lease, sublease, license, concession, or other agreement shall be absolutely void and ineffective as a conveyance of any right or interest in the possession, use, occupancy, or utilization of any part of the Premises.
17.13 AFFILIATES. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article 17, Landlords consent shall not be required in the event Tenant desires to assign this Lease or sublet the Premises or any portion thereof to any corporation or entity which (a) controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Tenant, (b) acquires all of the assets or equity interest of Tenant, or (c) is the resulting entity in a merger or consolidation of Tenant, subject to the following conditions:
(a) Tenant shall not be in default of any of the terms, covenants, or conditions on Tenants part to observe or perform hereunder;
(b) such sublet or assignment shall be subject to all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease;
(c) Tenant shall notify Landlord of such sublet or assignment in accordance with§ 17.2 hereof and furnish Landlord with reasonably satisfactory evidence that such sublessee or assignee controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Tenant; and
(d) in the event of such merger, consolidation, or transfer of substantially all of Tenants assets, the successor to Tenant has a net worth, computed in accordance with generally-accepted accounting principles, at least equal to the greater of (i) the net worth of Tenant immediately prior to such merger, consolidation, or transfer or (ii) the net worth of Tenant herein named on the date of this Lease; and proof satisfactory to Landlord of such net worth shall have been delivered to Landlord at least ten (10) days prior to the effective date of any such transaction.
As used herein, the terms control and common control shall be deemed to mean the ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of all of the issued and outstanding voting shares of such corporation, or fifty percent (50%) or more of all the legal and equitable interest in any such business entities.
17.14 PERMITIED OCCUPANTS. Landlord hereby agrees that the provisions of this Article 17 shall not apply to the shared occupancy of individual offices in the Premises with Tenant by individuals renting not more than one (1) such office (the Permitted Occupant), provided that the space occupied by the Permitted Occupant shall not be separately demised or contain separate entrances, demarcations, or reception areas and the occupancy by the Permitted Occupant shall be upon and subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Lease.
18 SUBORDINATION AND ATTORNMENT
18.1 SUBORDINATION OF LEASE. This Lease and all rights of Tenant hereunder are and shall be subject and subordinate in all respects to (a) all ground leases, overriding leases, and underlying leases of the Building, Property, and/ or the Complex now or hereafter existing; (b) all mortgages which may now or hereafter affect the Building, Property, or Complex and any of such leases, whether or not such mortgages shall also cover other lands and/ or buildings; (c) each and every advance made or hereafter to be made under such mortgages; and (d) to all renewals, modifications, replacements, and extensions of such leases and such mortgages and spreaders and consolidations of such mortgages. This§ 18.1 shall be self-operative, and no further instrument of subordination shall be required. In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall promptly execute and deliver any instrument that Landlord, the lessor of any such lease or the holder (Holder) of any such mortgage or any of their respective successors in interest may reasonably request to evidence such subordination. The leases to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate pursuant to this Article 18 are hereinafter sometimes referred to as Superior Leases; the mortgages to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate are hereinafter sometimes referred to as Superior Mortgages; and the lessor of a superior lease or its successor in interest at the time referred to is sometimes hereinafter referred to as a Lessor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant agrees, upon written request from Landlord or any Holder or Lessor, to reorder the relative priority of the Lease with respect to any particular Superior Mortgage or Superior Lease so as to subordinate the lien of any such Superior Mortgage or Superior Lease to the Lease. Tenant agrees to execute any instrument which Landlord or any Holder or Lessor may present in order to effect such prioritization of the Lease, provided that such instrument does not modify any material term of the Lease or increase Tenants obligations thereunder.
18.2 NOTICE AND CURE RIGHT. In the event of any action or omission of Landlord which would give Tenant the right, immediately or after lapse of a period of time, to cancel or terminate this Lease, or to claim a partial or total eviction, Tenant shall not exercise such right unless and until (i) Tenant shall have given written notice of such act or omission to the Holder of each Superior Mortgage and the Lessor of each Superior Lease whose name and address shall previously have been furnished to Tenant in writing; and (ii) unless such act or omission shall be one which is not capable of being remedied by Landlord or
such mortgage Holder or Lessor within a reasonable period of time, a reasonable period for remedying such act or omission shall have elapsed following the giving of such notice and following the time when such Holder or Lessor shall have become entitled under such Superior Mortgage or Superior Lease, as the case may be, to remedy the same (which reasonable period shall in no event be less than the period to which Landlord would be entitled under this Lease or otherwise, after similar notice, to effect such remedy), provided such Holder or Lessor shall with due diligence give Tenant written notice of intention to remedy such act or omission and shall thereafter diligently and continuously prosecute such cure to completion.
18.3 ATTORNMENT. If the Lessor of a Superior Lease or the Holder of a Superior Mortgage shall succeed to the rights of Landlord under this Lease, whether through possession or foreclosure action or delivery of a new lease or deed, then at the request of such party so succeeding to Landlords rights or other person having or acquiring title by virtue of such foreclosure or termination (herein sometimes referred to as Successor Landlord) and upon such Successor Landlords written agreement to accept Tenants attornment, Tenant shall attorn to and recognize such Successor Landlord as Tenants landlord under this Lease and shall promptly execute and deliver any instrument that such Successor Landlord may reasonably request to evidence such attornment. Upon such attornment this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as a direct lease between the Successor Landlord and Tenant upon all of the terms, conditions, and covenants in this Lease, except as follows:

It is intended hereunder that Landlord have the remedy described in California Civil Code§ 1951.4, which provides that a landlord may continue a lease in effect after a tenants breach and abandonment and recover rent as it becomes due, if tenant has the right to sublease or assign, subject only to reasonable limitations.
In the event of any re-entry or retaking of possession by Landlord, Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to remove all or any part of Tenants Property from the Premises and to place such property in storage at a public warehouse at the expense and risk of Tenant.

The waiver by Landlord of any Event of Default or of any other breach of any term, covenant, or condition of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such term, covenant, or condition or of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term, covenant, or condition. Acceptance of Rent by Landlord subsequent to any Event of Default or breach hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of any preceding Event of Default or breach other than the failure to pay the particular Rent so accepted, regardless of Landlords knowledge of any breach at the time of such acceptance of Rent. Landlord shall not be deemed to have waived any term, covenant, or condition of this Lease, unless Landlord gives Tenant written notice of such waiver.

If Tenant defaults in the performance of any of its obligations under this Lease, Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to), without waiving such default, perform the same for the account and at the expense of Tenant. Tenant shall pay Landlord all costs of such performance promptly upon receipt of a bill therefor.
20.3 DAMAGES. Should Landlord elect to terminate this Lease under the provisions of§ 20.2 (i) above, Landlord may recover as damages from Tenant the following:
(a) Past Rent: The worth at the time of the award of any unpaid Rent which had been earned at the time of termination; plus
(b) Rent Prior to Award: The worth at the time of the award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(c) Rent After Award: The worth at the time of the award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of the rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(d) Proximately Caused Damages: Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all detriment proximately caused by Tenants failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom, including, but not limited to, any costs or expenses (including attorneys fees), incurred by Landlord in (i) retaking possession of the Premises; (ii) maintaining the Premises after Tenants default; (iii) preparing the Premises for reletting to a new tenant, including any repairs or alterations; and (iv) reletting the Premises, including brokers commissions.
The worth at the time of the award as used in subsections (a) and (b) above is to be computed by allowing interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum or, if different, the legal rate then applicable in California. The worth at the time of the award as used in subsection (c) above is to be computed by discounting the amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank situated nearest to the Premises at the time of the award plus one percent (1%).

If Landlord fails to perform any covenant, condition, or agreement contained in this Lease within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice from Tenant specifying a default and the relevant Lease provision, or if Landlord fails within that thirty-day period after notice to commence to cure any such default which cannot reasonably be cured within thirty (30) days, then, subject to§ 21.1 below, Landlord shall be liable to Tenant for any damages sustained by Tenant as a result of Landlords breach. Tenant shall not have the right to terminate this Lease or to withhold, reduce, or offset any amount against any payments of Rent or any other charges due and payable under this Lease, except to the extent that a specific Lease provision permits such termination or withholding, reduction, or offset of Rent.
20.5 HOLDERS RIGHT TO CURE. Tenant shall give any Holder a copy, by registered mail, of any notice of default served upon Landlord, provided that Tenant previously has been notified in writing of the address of such Holder. If Landlord fails to cure such default within the time provided in this Lease, any such Holder shall have an additional forty-five (45) days within which to cure such default by Landlord or, if such default cannot reasonably be cured within that time, such additional time as may be necessary, provided that within such forty-five (45) day period the Holder has commenced and is pursuing the remedies necessary to cure such default (including commencement of foreclosure proceedings, if necessary to effect such cure), in which event this Lease shall not be terminated while such remedies are being so pursued.
20.6 SURVIVAL OF REMEDIES. The remedies permitted under this Article 20, the parties indemnities under§§ 14.4.3, 14.4.4, and14.4.5, and§ 29.5 below shall survive the termination of this Lease.

Notwithstanding the acquisition (if same should occur) by the same party of the title and interests of both Landlord and Tenant under this Lease, there shall never be a merger of the estates of Landlord and Tenant under this Lease, but instead the separate estates, rights, duties, and obligations of Landlord and Tenant, as existing hereunder, shall remain unextinguished and continue, separately, in full force and effect until this Lease expires or otherwise terminates in accordance with the express provisions herein contained.
29.9 NO MERGER ON VOLUNTARY SURRENDER. A voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Tenant or the mutual cancellation of this Lease shall not work a merger and shall, at the option of Landlord, terminate all or any existing subleases or subtenancies, or may, at the option of Landlord, operate as an assignment to it of any or all such subleases or subtenancies.
29.10 CONSENT. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall have no claim and hereby waives the right to any claim against Landlord for money damages by reason of any refusal, withholding, or delaying by Landlord of any consent, approval, statement, or satisfaction; and in such event, Tenants only remedies therefor shall be an action for specific performance, injunction, or declaratory judgement to enforce any right to such consent, approval, statement, or satisfaction.
29.11 COUNTERPARTS. This Lease may be executed in multiple counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

Tenant represents and warrants that all financial statements, records, and information furnished by Tenant to Landlord in connection with this Lease are and shall be true, correct, and complete in all respects.

29.18 SEVERABILITY.

29.20 EXECUTION BY LANDLORD. The submission of this document for examination and negotiation does not constitute an offer to lease, or a reservation of, or option for, the Premises.

29.23 CONSTRUCTION. All provisions hereof, whether covenants or conditions, shall be deemed to be both covenants and conditions. The definitions contained in this Lease, shall be used to interpret the Lease. All rights and remedies of Landlord and Tenant shall, except as otherwise expressly provided, be cumulative and non-exclusive of any other remedy at law or in equity.
29.24 FORCE MAJEURE DELAYS. This Lease and the obligations of Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, hereunder shall be excused during the period that such party is unable to fulfill any of its obligations hereunder or is delayed in doing so, if such inability or delay is caused by reason of force majeure, strike, labor troubles, acts of God, acts of government, unavailability of materials or labor, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of such party (collectively Force Majeure Delays); provided, however, that Force Majeure Delay shall not excuse any obligation to pay money.
29.25 AUTHORITY.

Furthermore, Tenant agrees that the execution of any written consent hereunder, or any written modification or termination of this Lease, by any general partner or member of Tenant or any other authorized agent of Tenant, shall be binding on Tenant.
29.26 NONDISCLOSURE. Tenant agrees that it shall not disclose any of the matters set forth in this Lease or disseminate or distribute any information concerning the terms, covenants, or conditions thereof to any person, firm, or entity, other than a prospective assignee or subtenant of the Premises, without first obtaining the express written approval of Landlord; provided, however, that Tenant may disclose the contents of this Lease to any director, officer, or employee of Tenant, to Tenants lawyers, accountants, or other third party consultants or professionals, to any lenders, investors, or others to whom Tenant provides financial statements, or in response to any legally effective demand for disclosure pursuant to court order or from any other properly constituted legal authority.

29.28 ACCESS INSPECTION DISCLOSURE. Pursuant to California Civil Code § 1938, Landlord hereby notifies Tenant that, as of the date of this Lease, the Premises have not undergone inspection by a Certified Access Specialist to determine whether the Premises meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards under California Civil Code § 55.53, and the Premises have not been determined to meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards pursuant to Civil Code § 55.53. In addition, Civil Code§ 1938(e) requires that the following language be inserted into this Lease:
A Certified Access Specialist (CASp) can inspect the subject premises and determine whether the subject premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law. Although state law does not require a CASp inspection of the subject premises, the commercial property owner or lessor may not prohibit the lessee or tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the subject premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of the lessee or tenant, if requested by the lessee or tenant. 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 is acting in compliance with applicable Laws by inserting the foregoing paragraph into this Lease, but Landlord thereby expresses no opinion as to the meaning or applicability of§ 1938 and offers no legal advice as to its meaning or applicability. Tenant is informed and agrees that it will seek its own legal counsel if it has questions regarding the meaning of§ 1938 or its applicability to this Lease.
