For valuable consideration, Landlord and Tenant covenant and agree as follows:
|1.1||Lease of Premises.|
|Landlord leases to Tenant the Premises described in the Basic Lease Terms and shown as Suite 390 on Exhibit “A” (the “Premises”) subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease.|
|1.2||Delivery of Possession and Commencement.|
|Should Landlord be unable to deliver possession of the Premises on the Anticipated Commencement Date stated in the Basic Lease Terms, Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for delay in delivering possession. The term of the Lease shall commence on the date the Premises are delivered to Tenant in the condition required under this Lease, which shall be deemed to have occurred when Landlord’s Work (defined below) has been substantially completed (the “Commencement Date”). The Premises shall be delivered to Tenant in “‘as is’’ condition and without any representation or warranty subject only to the improvements to be performed by Landlord in accordance with Exhibit “B” (“Landlord’s Work’’). The terms “substantial completion,” “substantially complete.” and words of similar import (whether or not spelled with initial capitals) as used herein shall mean the date of substantial completion of Landlord’s Work such that Tenant may commence the installation of any of Tenant’s equipment and occupy the Premises for the conduct of its business (subject to the completion of any additional construction to be performed by Tenant). Landlord’s Work shall be deemed substantially complete notwithstanding the fact that minor details of construction, mechanical adjustments or decorations which do not materially interfere with Tenant’s use and enjoyment of the Premises remain to be performed (items normally referred to as “punch list” items). The existence of any “punch list” items shall not postpone the Commencement Date. Tenant’s occupancy of the Premises shall constitute conclusive acceptance of the amount of square footage stated herein, and of the condition of the Premises. The Expiration Date of this Lease shall be the date stated in the Basic Lease Terms. Upon ascertaining the date of the Commencement Date, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a written confirmation in the form attached hereto as Exhibit “E” (“Lease Confirmation”) of the Commencement Date. The Lease Confirmation shall be binding upon Tenant unless Tenant objects to the notice in writing delivered to Landlord within five (5) days of Tenant’s receipt of said Lease Confirmation.|
|The rentable areas of the Premises and the Building specified in Section I. I are approximate. Tenant is satisfied with Landlord’s measurement of the rentable areas of the Premises and of the Building.|
|Tenant shall have the right to occupy the Premises approximately seven (7) days after the mutual execution of this Lease. Such early access to the Premises by Tenant shall be solely for the purpose of installing Tenant’s cabling, furniture, fixtures, and equipment in the Premises and shall be subject to the following conditions: (i) prior to Tenant’s entry into the Premises, Tenant provides Landlord with proof that Tenant has the insurance that Tenant is required to maintain under this Lease, (ii) prior to Tenant’s entry into the Premises, Tenant provides Landlord with such evidence as reasonably required that Tenant has received all required governmental approvals to enter the Premises, (iii) prior to Tenant’s entry into the Premises, Tenant provides Landlord with contractor’s licenses, insurance and bonds for all contractors entering the Premises in connection with any work to be performed on by Tenant in the Premises, and (iv) Landlord shall have the right to terminate or suspend Tenant’s early access at any time that Landlord determines that such early access interferes with the performance of the Landlord’s Work.|
|1.4||Option to Extend Term.|
|Landlord hereby grants Tenant the right to extend the Term of the Lease for one (I) additional period of three (3) years (such extended period is hereinafter referred to as the “Extended Term”) on the same terms and conditions contained in the Lease, except that (i) Base Rent for an Extended Term shall be as set forth hereinbelow, (ii) no additional options to extend shall apply following the expiration of applicable Extended Term (other than as expressly set forth above), and (iii) Landlord shall have no obligation to make any improvements to the Premises or contribute any amounts therefor. Written notice of Tenant’s exercise of its option to extend (“Option to Extend”) the Tem1 of this Lease for the Extended Term must be given to Landlord no less than six (6) months prior to the date the Term of the Lease would otherwise expire. If Tenant is in default under this Lease, Tenant shall have no Option to Extend the Term of this Lease until such default is cured within the cure period set forth in this Lease for such default, if any; provided, that the period of time within which said Option to Extend may be exercised shall not be extended or enlarged by reason of Tenant’s inability to exercise said Option to Extend because of a default. In the event Tenant validly exercises its Option to Extend the Term of this Lease as herein provided, Base Rent shall be adjusted as of the commencement date of the Extended Term as follows (but in no event shall it be less than the Base Rent for the month immediately prior to the commencement of the Extended Term):|
(a) Not later than six (6) months prior to the commencement of an Extended Term, Landlord shall provide Tenant with Landlord’s determination of the fair market Base Rent for such Extended Term, including periodic increases as dictated by the current market (“Landlord’s Determination of Base Rent for Extended Term”). Tenant shall provide notice to Landlord within ten (10) days after receipt of such notice from Landlord as to whether Tenant accepts Landlord’s Determination of Base Rent for Extended Term. In the event Tenant does not agree to Landlord’s Determination of Base Rent for Extended Term, Landlord and Tenant shall attempt to agree upon Base Rent for the Premises for the Extended Term, such rent to be the fair market Base Rent installment of rent for the Premises for the Extended Term, as defined in Subsection (c) below. If the parties are unable to agree upon the Base Rent for the Extended Term by the date three (3) months prior to the commencement of the Extended Term, then within ten (10) days thereafter each party, at its own cost and by giving notice to the other party, shall appoint a real estate appraiser with at least five (5) years full-time commercial real estate appraisal experience in the area in which the Premises are located to appraise and set Base Rent for the Extended Term. If a party does not appoint an appraiser within ten ( I 0) days after the other party has given notice of the name of its appraiser, the single appraiser appointed shall be the sole appraiser and shall set Base Rent for the Extended Term. If each party shall have so appointed an appraiser, the two (2) appraisers shall meet promptly and attempt to set the Base Rent for the Extended Term. If the two (2) appraisers are unable to agree within thirty (30) days after the second appraiser has been appointed, they shall attempt to select a third appraiser meeting the qualifications herein stated within ten (10) days after the last day the two (2) appraisers are given to set Base Rent. If the two (2) appraisers are unable to agree on the third appraiser within such ten ( I 0) day period, either of the parties to this Lease, by giving five (5) days’ notice to the other party, may apply to the Arbitration Service of Portland for the selection of a third appraiser meeting the qualifications stated in this Section. Each of the parties shall bear one-half ( l /2) of the cost of appointing the third appraiser and of paying the third appraiser’s fee. The third appraiser, however selected, shall be a person who has not previously acted in any capacity for either party.
(b) The fair market Base Rent shall be fixed by the appraisers in accordance with the following procedures. Each party-appointed appraiser shall state, in writing, such appraiser’s determination of the fair market Base Rent supported by the reasons therefor and shall make counterpart copies for the other party appointed appraiser and any neutral appraiser. The party-appointed appraisers shall arrange for a simultaneous exchange of their proposed fair market Base Rent determinations. The role of any neutral appraiser shall be to select whichever of the two (2) proposed determinations of fair market Base Rent most closely approximates the neutral appraiser’s own determination of fair market Base Rent. The neutral appraiser shall have no right to propose a middle ground or any modification of either of the two (2) proposed determinations of fair market Base Rent. The determination of fair market Base Rent the neutral appraiser chooses as that most closely approximating the neutral appraiser’s determination of the fair market Base Rent shall constitute the decision of the appraisers and shall be final and binding upon the parties. The appraisers shall have no power to modify the provisions of this Lease.
(c) For purposes of the appraisal, the term “fair market Base Rent” shall mean the price that a ready and willing tenant would pay, as of the Extended Term commencement date, as a base rent to a ready and willing landlord of premises comparable to the Premises, in terms of size, quality and comparable term, in their then improved state, in the Portland, Oregon market, if such premises were exposed for lease on the open market for a reasonable period of time; including any rent increases over the Extended Term. In no event shall there be deducted from such fair market rental the value of any concessions, including without limitation, tenant improvements, commission and/or “down time.”
(d) Any neutral appraiser’s decision shall be made not later than thirty (30) days after the submission by the appraisers of their proposals with respect to the fair market Base Rent. The parties have included these time limits in order to expedite the proceeding, but they are not jurisdictional, and the neutral appraiser may for good cause allow reasonable extensions or delays, which shall not affect the validity of the award. Absent fraud, collusion or willful misconduct by the neutral appraiser, the award shall be final, and judgment may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof The Option to Extend the Lease hereby granted is personal to the entity executing this Lease as tenant and is not transferable; in the event of any assignment or subletting under this Lease, the Option to Extend the Lease shall automatically terminate and shall thereafter be null and void.
|1.5||Right of First Offer.|
|Ifat any time during the initial Term of the Lease space in Suites 360 or 370 of the Building as shown on Exhibit “D” (collectively and individually, the “First Offer Space”) is available for lease or is about to become available for lease (provided such space shall not be deemed available for lease until it has already been leased to a third party after the date of this Lease or if it is subject to any existing options of existing tenants of the Building) and so long as Tenant is not in default of this Lease, Landlord shall notify Tenant of the availability of such space and the terms upon which Landlord is willing to lease such space to Tenant (the base rent per sq. ft., and the general terms shall be consistent with the then prevailing-market for premises comparable to the Premises, in terms of size, quality and comparable term, in their then-improved state, in the Portland, Oregon market, provided the base rent shall be no lower than that for the initial Premises for the month in which the expansion of the Premises to include the First Offer Space shall occur(the “Expansion Space Commencement Date”). If Tenant timely accepts Landlord’s offer, if, as of the Expansion Space Commencement Date, the Term of the Lease is set to expire less than twenty-four (24) months later, the Term of the Lease with respect to the initial Premises and the First Offer Space shall be extended such that the Term of the Lease expires twenty-four (24) months following the Expansion Space Commencement Date. Tenant shall have five (5) business days to accept Landlord’s offer. If Tenant fails to accept Landlord’s offer within such five (5) business day period, Landlord shall be free to lease such space any time during the term of this Lease free and clear of any rights of Tenant; provided however, once such space has been leased to a third party and thereafter becomes available for lease, the provisions of this Right of First Offer shall then again apply. The right of first offer contained herein shall not apply to any renewal or extension of the term of the Lease and shall be personal to the entity executing this Lease as tenant.|
Tenant shall pay to Landlord the Base Rent for the Premises and any additional rent provided herein, without deduction or offset. At the same time as execution of the Lease, Tenant shall pay any prepaid rent stated in the Basic Lease Terms. Rent is payable in advance on the first day of each month commencing on the Commencement Date of this Lease. Tenant shall have a five (5) day grace period from the first day of the month within which to pay the Base Rent and any additional rent. Rent for any partial month during the Lease term shall be prorated to reflect the number of days during the month that Tenant occupies the Premises. Additional rent means amounts determined under Section 20 of this Lease and any other sums payable by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease. Rent not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of nine percent (9%) per annum, until paid. Landlord may at its option impose a late charge of the greater of $.05 for each $ I of rent or $50 for rent payments made more than ten (I 0) days late in lieu of interest for the first month of delinquency. Tenant acknowledges that late payment by Tenant to Landlord of any rent or other sums due under this Lease will cause Landlord to incur costs not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount of such costs being extremely difficult and impracticable to ascertain, and that such late charge represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs that Landlord will incur by reason of any such late payment and is not a penalty. Neither imposition nor collection nor failure to impose or collect such late charge shall be considered a waiver of any other remedies available for default. In addition to such late charge, an additional charge of$75 shall be recoverable by Landlord for any returned checks.
|2.2||Abated Rent and Other Inducement Provisions.|
|As reflected above, Tenant shall have no obligation to pay monthly Base Rent for the first two (2) full months after the Commencement Date (the “Free Rent Period”) resulting in an abatement of monthly Base Rent in the aggregate amount of$ I l,437.50. In the event ofa default by Tenant under the terms of this Lease which results in early termination pursuant to the provisions hereof during such Free Rent Period, Tenant shall not be entitled to any such rent abatement after the date of termination nor shall Tenant be entitled to assert any right to rent abatement after such termination against any sums due Landlord. The rent abatement granted under this Section and any other cash and allowance which is granted to Tenant (collectively, “Inducement Provisions”) is solely for the benefit of the entity executing this Lease as tenant and is not transferable to any assignee or subtenant. In the event of a default by Tenant under the terms of this Lease which results in early termination pursuant to the provisions hereof, then as a part of the recovery to which Landlord shall be entitled shall be included a portion of such rent which was abated under the provisions of this Section and the cash and any allowance other all other Inducement Provisions, which portion shall be determined by multiplying the total amount of rent, cash and allowance which was abated or granted under this Lease by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of months remaining in the term of this Lease at the time of such default and the denominator of which is the number of months during the term of this Lease that Tenant is obligated to pay monthly Base Rent. For the avoidance of doubt, during the Free Rent Period Tenant shall be obligated to pay Tenant’s Proportionate Share of operating expenses and real property taxes.|
|Upon execution of the Lease, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the amount stated in the Basic Lease Terms as a Security Deposit. Landlord may apply the Security Deposit to pay the cost of performing any obligation which Tenant fails to perform within the time required by this Lease, but such application by Landlord shall not waive Landlord’s other remedies nor be the exclusive remedy for Tenant’s default. If the Security Deposit is applied by Landlord, Tenant shall on demand pay the sum necessary to replenish the Security Deposit to its original amount. In no event will Tenant have the right to apply any part of the Security Deposit to any rent or other sums due under this Lease. If Tenant is not in default at the expiration or termination of this Lease, Landlord shall return the entire Security Deposit to Tenant, within thirty (30) days, except for the portion designated in the Basic Lease Terms, if any, which Landlord shall retain as a non-refundable cleaning fee. If Tenant is in default at the expiration or termination of this Lease, Landlord may retain such portion of the Security Deposit as needed to cure the default and shall promptly return the balance, if any, to Tenant. Landlord’s obligations with respect to the Security Deposit are those of a debtor and not of a trustee, and Landlord can commingle the Security Deposit with Landlord’s general funds. Landlord shall not be required to pay Tenant interest on the Security Deposit. Landlord shall be entitled to immediately endorse and cash Tenant’s Security Deposit; however, such endorsement and cashing shall not constitute Landlord’s acceptance of this Lease. In the event Landlord does not accept this Lease, Landlord shall return said Security Deposit. If Landlord sells its interest in the Premises during the term hereof and deposits with or credits to the purchaser the unapplied portion of the Security Deposit, thereupon Landlord shall be discharged from any further liability or responsibility with respect to the Security Deposit.|
Tenant shall use the Premises for Tenant’s Permitted Use stated in the Basic Lease Terms and for no other purpose. In connection with Tenant’s use of the Premises (including, without limitation, any alteration of the Premises), Tenant shall at its expense promptly comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations (“Laws”) and shall not annoy, obstruct, or interfere with the rights of other tenants. Tenant shall not allow any objectionable fumes, noise, light, vibration, radiation, or electromagnetic waves to be emitted from the Premises. If any such sound or vibration is detectable outside of the Premises, Tenant shall provide such insulation as is required to muffle such sound or vibration and render it undetectable at Tenant’s cost. Tenant shall not conduct any activities that will increase Landlord’s insurance rates. Tenant shall pay before delinquency all taxes, assessments, license fees and public charges levied, assessed or imposed upon its business operations and all trade fixtures, leasehold improvements, merchandise and other personal property in or about the Premises. Tenant shall not use the Premises for any uses that will cause any increase in insurance rates in the Building. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, in no event shall any portion of the Premises be used for any marijuana-related business, cannabusiness, or any other business related to controlled substances as defined in the Federal Controlled Substances Act (including, but not limited to, the cultivation, manufacture, processing, accounting, financial transactions, other ancillary services, storage or sale of cannabis or cannabis-related products).

Tenant shall have no right to install any equipment on or through the roofof the Building, or use or install or store any equipment or other items outside of the interior boundary of the Premises.|
|4.3||Signs and Other Installations.|
|No signs, awnings, or other apparatus shall be painted on or attached to the Building or anything placed on any glass or woodwork of the Premises or positioned so as to be visible from outside the Premises, including any window covering (l,’.¾, shades, blinds, curtains, drapes, screens, or tinting materials) without Landlord’s written consent. All signs installed by Tenant shall comply with Landlord’s standards for signs and all applicable codes and all signs and sign hardware shall be removed upon termination of this Lease with the sign location restored to its former state. Any material violating this provision may be removed and disposed by Landlord without compensation to Tenant, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of the same upon request. Subject to Landlord’s final approval as to the specific design, location, and size of such signage, Tenant may install, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, Tenant-branded signage on the door and window of the entry to the Premises. Landlord shall, at Landlord’s sole cost and expense, place Tenant’s name on the directory of the Building. Notwithstanding the above, and subject to Landlord’s reasonable approval of the design, location, and size of such signage, Landlord consents to Tenant placing a neon sign in its third floor window for “Portland Potato” or “Portland Potato Vodka,” as permitted by the city sign code and all other governmental regulations, provided such signage shall not be placed within three (3) feet of the window line.|
|All parking spaces shall be assigned to tenants and other parties pursuant to a separate written agreement with Landlord. This Lease does not cover any parking spaces or rights to use any parking spaces except as indicated in Section N of the Basic Lease Terms. Except to the extent of the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or Landlord’s agents, employees or contractors, Landlord shall not be responsible for money, jewelry, automobiles or personal property lost in or stolen from the parking areas regardless of whether such loss or theft occurs when the parking areas are locked or otherwise secured. Without limiting the terms of the preceding sentence, Landlord shall not be liable for any loss, injury or damage to persons using the parking areas or automobiles or other property therein, it being agreed that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the use of the parking spaces shall be at the sole risk of Tenant and its employees. If Tenant and Landlord enter into a parking agreement covering parking spaces in the Building, then any default by Tenant under such agreement beyond any applicable cure period shall, at Landlord’s option, constitute an event of default under this Lease. A copy of the separate parking agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit “F.”|

|5.1||Utilities and Services.|
|Landlord will furnish water and electricity to the Building at all times and will furnish heat and air conditioning, at building standard levels, during the normal Building hours as established by Landlord. Tenant shall pay for all charges for electricity, natural gas and water furnished to the Premises. If Tenant does not pay any of these charges directly, Tenant shall pay Landlord for such charges and the amount payable by Tenant will be based upon consumption as sub-metered to the Premises by Landlord, or if not sub-metered, upon an equitable allocation made by Landlord, which allocation will be binding absent manifest error.

Landlord reserves the right to install separate meters for any such utility and to charge Tenant for the cost of such installation.|
|5.3||Security Measures for the Premises.|

Together with Tenant’s request for a new telecom provider, Tenant shall submit to Landlord evidence acceptable to Landlord in its sole discretion that the installation of the Cabling by the telecom provider is in compliance with all applicable laws and will not impede the operation of the Building or its systems in any material respect and if so as to the latter, that Tenant will be responsible to correct and remediate such impediment at it sole cost and expense as a condition precedent to such approval by Landlord. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant shall not commence or allow the telecom provider to commence any installation or operation of the Cabling until the proposed location of and specifications for the Cabling have been approved in writing by Landlord. Landlord shall have no obligation to design, install, construct, use, operate, maintain, repair, replace or remove the Cabling or to have any other responsibility or liability in connection therewith or the operations thereof. The use of the Cabling and all areas outside the Premises shall be subject to all terms and conditions of the Lease as if within the Premises, including, without limitation, insurance and indemnification obligations in this Lease. Landlord shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by Tenant or others because of any interruption in or failure of utilities, including electrical power, to the Cabling. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that it shall accept the areas in which Tenant installs its Cabling and piping in their “As ls” condition. Landlord makes no representation respecting the condition of these areas or their suitability for operation and installation of the Cabling.|
