All payments shall be made by Tenant as provided in Article 8.
6.1 Tenant’s Insurance. Tenant shall maintain throughout the Term the following insurance:
(a) Commercial General Liability Insurance covering claims of bodily injury, personal injury and property damage arising out of Tenant’s operations and contractual liabilities, including coverage formerly known as broad form, on an occurrence basis, with limits of $1,000,000 each occurrence and $2,000,000 annual aggregate and excess/umbrella limit of $5,000,000.00.
(b) Automobile Liability Insurance covering the ownership, maintenance, and operations of any automobile or automotive equipment, whether such auto is owned, hired, or non-owned. Tenant shall maintain insurance with a combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage of not less than the equivalent of $1,000,000 per accident. Limits can be satisfied through the maintenance of a combination of primary and umbrella policies. Such insurance shall cover Tenant against claims for bodily injury, including death resulting therefrom, and damage to the property of others caused by accident regardless of whether such operations are performed by Tenant, Tenant’s agents, or by any one directly or indirectly employed by any of them. Tenant’s automobile liability insurance shall be endorsed to add Landlord and Landlord’s property manager as additional insureds.
(c) Commercial Property Insurance covering all furnishings, fixtures, equipment, and other personal property and effects of Tenant and of all persons claiming through Tenant which from time to time may be on the Premises or on the Lot. Such insurance shall be written on an “all risks” basis for physical loss or damage, for the full replacement cost value (subject to reasonable deductible amounts) without deduction for depreciation of the covered items and in amounts that meet any co-insurance clauses of the policies of insurance, and shall include coverage for damage or other loss caused by fire or other peril, including vandalism and malicious mischief, theft, water damage, including sprinkler leakage, bursting or stoppage of pipes, and explosion, and providing business interruption coverage for a period of one year.
(d) Worker’s Compensation insurance as required by applicable law and Employer’s Liability insurance with limits of at least $1,000,000.
(e) Such increased amounts of the insurance required to be carried by Tenant under this Section 6.1, and such other types and amounts of insurance covering the Premises and Tenant’s operations therein, as may be reasonably requested by Landlord, but not in excess of the amounts and types of insurance then being required by landlords of buildings comparable to, and in the vicinity of, the Premises.
(f) The insurance required to be maintained by Tenant shall (i) be issued by an insurance company that has an A.M. Best rating of not less than A-VIII; and (ii) be in form and content reasonably acceptable to Landlord. In the event that Tenant receives any notice of cancellation or material changes to the insurance policies required under this Lease, Tenant shall notify Landlord of the same within five (5) days after Tenant’s receipt of such notice. Tenant’s Commercial General Liability Insurance and Automobile Liability Insurance shall (a) name Landlord, Landlord’s property management company and Landlord’s mortgagee (the “Additional Insured Parties”) as additional insureds; and (b) be primary insurance as to all claims thereunder and provide that any insurance carried by Landlord is excess and non-contributing with Tenant’s insurance. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, on or before the Term Commencement Date and at least fifteen (15) days before the expiration dates thereof, certificates from Tenant’s insurance
company on the forms currently designated “ACORD 28” (Evidence of Commercial Property Insurance) and “ACORD 25-S” (Certificate of Liability Insurance) or the equivalent. Attached to the ACORD 25-S (or equivalent) there shall be a blanket Additional Insured endorsement or a specific endorsement naming the Additional Insured Parties as additional insureds which shall be binding on Tenant’s insurance company. If Tenant fails to comply with the foregoing insurance requirements or to deliver to Landlord the certificates or evidence of coverage required herein, Landlord, in addition to any other remedy available pursuant to this Lease or otherwise, may, but shall not be obligated to, obtain such insurance and Tenant shall pay to Landlord on demand the premium costs thereof, plus an administrative fee of ten percent (10%) of such cost. It is expressly understood and agreed that the foregoing minimum limits of liability and coverages required of Tenant’s insurance shall not reduce or limit the obligation of the Tenant to indemnify the Landlord as provided in this Lease. All policies required herein shall use occurrence based forms.
6.2 Landlord’s Insurance. Landlord shall maintain throughout the Term the following insurance:
(a) Commercial general liability insurance for any injury to person or property occurring on the Premises, in such amounts and with such deductibles as are typically carried by owners of properties similar to the Premises in the Braintree, Massachusetts, area;
(b) All risk fire and casualty insurance on a replacement value, together with rental loss coverage and, if Landlord so elects, flood coverage to the extent the same is available, insuring the Building and its rental value, with such deductibles, if any, as are typically carried by owners of properties similar to the Premises in the Braintree Massachusetts, area; and
(c) At Landlord’s option, insurance against loss or damage from sprinklers and from leakage or explosions or cracking of boilers, pipes carrying steam or water, or both, pressure vessels or similar apparatus, in the so‑called “broad form”, in such amounts and with such deductibles as are typically carried by owners of properties similar to the Premises in the Braintree, Massachusetts, area, and insurance against such other hazards and in such amounts as may from time to time be required by any bank, insurance company or other lending institution holding a mortgage on the Building.
6.3 Tenant Reimbursement of Insurance Taken Out by Landlord. As Additional Rent, Tenant shall from time to time reimburse Landlord for Landlord’s costs incurred in maintaining the insurance provided pursuant to Section 6.2 pursuant to Article 8.
6.4 Requirements Applicable to Insurance Policies. All policies for insurance required under the provisions of this Article 6 shall be obtained from responsible companies qualified to do business in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and in good standing therein, Tenant agrees to furnish Landlord with insurance company certificates of all such insurance prior to the beginning of the Term hereof and of each renewal policy at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the policy it renews. Tenant agrees to give Landlord at least twenty (20) days’ prior written notice of any cancellation of any such insurance policies.
6.5 Waiver of Subrogation. All property insurance which is carried, or required to be carried under this Lease, by either party with respect to the Premises or to furniture, furnishings,
fixtures or equipment therein or alterations or improvements thereto, shall include provisions which deny to the insurer acquisition by subrogation of rights of recovery against the other party to the extent such rights have been waived by the insured party prior to occurrence of loss or injury, insofar as, and to the extent that, such provisions may be effective without making it impossible to obtain insurance coverage from responsible companies qualified to do business in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (even though extra premium may result therefrom) and without voiding the insurance coverage in force between the insurer and the insured party. On reasonable request, each party shall be entitled to have duplicates or certificates of policies containing such provisions. Each party hereby waives all rights of recovery against the other for loss or injury to the extent that the waiving party is covered by property insurance carried by it or required to be carried by it under this Lease.
7.1 Utilities. Tenant shall pay directly to the applicable provider all charges for gas, electricity and other utilities or services used or consumed at the Premises, and shall pay to Landlord, in accordance with Article 8, all charges for water and sewer, whether called charge, tax, assessment, fee or otherwise, including, without limitation, water and sewer use charges and taxes, if any, such charges, if paid by Landlord. Landlord shall not be liable for any interruption or failure in the supply of any such utilities to the Premises unless caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its employees, agents, representatives, or contractors. All utilities in the name of the Tenant as of Effective Date shall remain in the name of the Tenant during the Term of this Lease.
7.2 Expenses. Tenant shall pay to Landlord all of Landlord’s costs and expenses incurred under Article 9, exclusive of any such costs and expenses for any capital improvement to or replacement of any part of the Building or the Lot or for any capital improvements or items of expense properly chargeable to “capital account” under generally accepted accounting principles (but, subject to the provisions of Section 6.5 hereof, including any such capital improvement or replacement to the extent necessitated by the grossly negligent or willful acts or omissions of Tenant occurring during the Term of this Lease and not having been in existence as of the time of the commencement of the Term of this Lease). In addition, Tenant shall pay a property management fee payable to Landlord or Landlord’s property manager equal to $4,000 per month, pro-rated for any partial month during the Term.

Landlord shall deliver to Tenant Estimated Expense Statements for Extension Term

10.1 Use. Tenant shall use the Premises only for the Permitted Uses and shall maintain all licenses and permits necessary for Tenant’s business operations at the Premises (as opposed to licenses and permits necessary for the real property constituting the Premises, for which Tenant shall not be responsible), at Tenant’s sole expense.
10.2 Repair and Maintenance. Except as otherwise provided in Articles 9 and 11, Tenant shall keep the interior, non-structural portions of the Premises in a clean condition and otherwise in substantially the same condition as existed on the Effective Date, wear and tear, casualty and condemnation, and matters for which Landlord is responsible hereunder, excepted. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, except as provided in Section 7.2, in no event shall Tenant be obligated to perform, or pay the costs of, any capital improvement to or replacement of any part of the Premises or for any capital improvements or items of expense properly chargeable to “capital account” under generally accepted accounting principles. Tenant shall maintain its own janitorial contract to clean all interior areas of the Premises and shall keep in a safe, secure and sanitary condition all trash and rubbish temporarily stored at the Premises and shall arrange for and be responsible for all of the costs of a trash and rubbish removal service in connection with Tenant’s use of the Premises. During the Term,
provided the same is reasonably acceptable to Landlord, Tenant, at its expense, shall maintain its current contract, or a similar contract, for landscaping services for the Lot.
10.3 Compliance with Law and Insurance Requirements. Tenant shall comply with all legal requirements applicable to its use of the Premises; provided, however, that Tenant shall not be obligated to perform any capital improvement to or replacement of any part of the Premises unless any such capital improvement or replacement is necessitated by the grossly negligent or willful acts or omissions of Tenant occurring during the Term of this Lease and not having been in existence as of the time of the commencement of the Term of this Lease. Tenant shall not dump, flush, or in any way introduce any hazardous substances or any other toxic substances into the septic, sewage or other waste disposal system serving the Premises, or generate, store or dispose of hazardous substances in or on the Premises or dispose of hazardous substances from the Premises to any other location, except in accordance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended, 42 U.S.C. §6901 et seq., the Massachusetts Hazardous Waste Management Act, M.G.L. c.21C, as amended, the Massachusetts Oil and Hazardous Material Release Prevention and Response Act, M.G.L. c. 21E, as amended, and all other applicable codes, regulations, ordinances and laws.

Tenant will provide Landlord, from time to time upon Landlord’s request (but no more than one time during the Original Term or any Extension Term), with all records and information regarding any hazardous substances maintained on the Premises by Tenant.
Landlord shall have the right to make such inspections as Landlord shall reasonably elect from time to time to determine if Tenant is complying with this Section.
Except for the Permitted Uses, in no event shall any activity be conducted by Tenant on the Premises which may give rise to any cancellation of any insurance policy or make any insurance unobtainable.
10.4 Tenant’s Work. Tenant shall not make any installations, alterations, additions or improvements in or to the Premises, including, without limitation, any apertures in the walls, partitions, ceilings or floors, without on each occasion obtaining the prior written consent of Landlord. Any such work so approved by Landlord shall be performed only in accordance with plans and specifications therefor approved by Landlord. Tenant shall procure at Tenant’s sole expense all necessary permits and licenses before undertaking any work on the Premises and shall perform all such work in a good and workmanlike manner employing materials of good quality and so as to conform with all applicable zoning, building, fire, health and other codes, regulations, ordinances and laws and with all applicable insurance requirements. If requested by Landlord, Tenant shall furnish to Landlord prior to the commencement of any such work a bond or other security acceptable to Landlord assuring that any work by Tenant will be completed in accordance with the approved plans and specifications. Tenant shall keep the Premises at all times free of liens
for labor and materials. Tenant shall employ for such work only contractors approved by Landlord and shall require all contractors employed by Tenant to carry worker’s compensation insurance in accordance with statutory requirements and comprehensive public liability insurance covering such contractors on or about the Premises in amounts that at least equal the limits set forth in Article 1 and to submit certificates evidencing such coverage to Landlord prior to the commencement of such work. Landlord may inspect the work of Tenant at reasonable times and give notice of observed defects. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord acknowledges that Tenant shall make such modifications to the Premises as are necessary in connection with the Tenant vacating the Premises at the end of the Lease Term, provided such modifications shall be subject to Landlord’s reasonable approval.
10.5 Indemnity. Subject the provisions of Section 6.5 and Section 12.8, and except to the extent caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its employees, agents, representative, or contractors, Tenant shall defend, with counsel appointed by Tenant’s insurer or otherwise approved by Landlord, all actions against Landlord, any member, partner, trustee, stockholder, officer, director, employee or beneficiary of Landlord, holders of mortgages secured by the Premises and any other party having an interest in the Premises (the “Landlord Indemnified Parties”) with respect to, and shall pay, protect, indemnify and save harmless, to the extent permitted by law, all Landlord Indemnified Parties from and against, any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), causes of action, suits, claims, demands or judgments of any nature to the extent arising from (a) injury to or death of any person, or damage to or loss of property, occurring in the Premises, or (b) the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or its employees, agents, representatives, contractors, licensees, or sublessees.

10.6 Landlord’s Right to Enter. Tenant shall permit Landlord and its agents to enter into the Premises at reasonable times to examine the Premises, make such repairs and replacements as Landlord is required to make under this Lease or otherwise may elect to make, and show the Premises to prospective tenants, lenders, investors, and advisors and to keep affixed in suitable places notices of availability of the Premises. Except in emergencies, Landlord shall provide Tenant with reasonable (but not less than twenty-four (24) hours) prior oral notice of entry. In connection with any such entry for non-emergency work performed during Tenant’s normal business hours, Landlord shall use reasonable efforts not to unreasonably interfere with Tenant’s use of the Premises. Except in the case of emergencies, Tenant shall have the right to accompany Landlord and/or its agents, representatives, or contractors during any entry onto the Premises by Landlord or its agents, representatives, or contractors. In addition, in connection with any entry to
show the Premises to prospective tenants, lenders, investors, and advisors, Landlord shall comply with any reasonable privacy and security protocols established by Tenant for its laboratory space to ensure the confidentiality of any proprietary information.
10.7 Personal Property at Tenant’s Risk. All furnishings, fixtures, equipment, effects and property of every kind of Tenant and of all persons claiming by, through or under Tenant which may be on the Premises, shall be at the sole risk and hazard of Tenant and if the whole or any part thereof shall be destroyed or damaged by fire, water or otherwise, or by the leakage or bursting of water pipes, steam pipes, or other pipes, by theft or from any other cause, no part of said loss or damage shall be charged to or to be borne by Landlord, except that Landlord shall in no event be indemnified or held harmless or exonerated from any liability to Tenant for any injury, loss, damage or liability not covered by Tenant’s insurance to the extent prohibited by law.
10.8 Payment of Landlord’s Cost of Enforcement. Tenant shall pay, within thirty (30) days following Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s demand therefor, Landlord’s expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred in enforcing any obligation of Tenant under this Lease or in curing any default by Tenant under this Lease as provided in Section 12.4.
10.9 Yield Up. At the expiration of the Term, Tenant shall surrender all keys to the Premises, remove all of its trade fixtures and personal property in the Premises, remove all Excluded Equipment (as defined the PSA) that it has elected to retain pursuant to Section 2 of the PSA, remove such installations and improvements made by Tenant after the Effective Date as Landlord may have required to be removed at the expiration of the Term at the time of Landlord’s consent to such installations and improvements, and all Tenant’s signs wherever located, remove in accordance with applicable laws any and all hazardous substances used, stored, or generated by Tenant in connection with its business operations at the Premises, and repair all damage caused by such removal (subject to the terms of this Section 10.9), and yield up the Premises (including all installations and improvements made by Tenant except for trade fixtures) broom-clean and in the same condition which Tenant is obliged to keep and maintain the Premises under this Lease. Any property not so removed by Tenant within seven (7) days following Landlord’s notice to Tenant of such failure of removal shall be deemed abandoned and may be removed and disposed of by Landlord in such manner as Landlord shall determine and Tenant shall pay Landlord the entire cost and expense incurred by it in effecting such removal and disposition. Landlord acknowledges that the sign structures on the Lot have been in place for a number of years. Tenant agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any damage to the sign structures caused by the removal of Tenant’s signs or other identification of Tenant therefrom. Tenant agrees to provide Landlord with the scope of work for the removal of Tenant’s signs from such sign structures before Tenant commences such removal. If, despite using such commercially reasonable efforts, any of Tenant’s signs or other identification of Tenant cannot be removed from the associated sign structure without damage to such sign structure, then such sign structure may not be removed by Tenant, and the parties shall agree upon a process to remove the sign without removing the sign structure causing as little damage thereto as reasonably possible.
10.10 Estoppel Certificate. Upon not less than five (5) Business Days’ prior notice by Landlord, Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord a statement in writing certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect and that, except as stated therein, Tenant has no knowledge of any defenses, offsets or counterclaims against its obligations to pay
Rent and to perform its other covenants under this Lease (or, if there have been any modifications that the same is in full force and effect as modified and stating the modifications and, if there are any defenses, offsets or counterclaims, setting them forth in reasonable detail), the dates to which Rent has been paid and a statement that, to Tenant’s knowledge, Landlord is not in default hereunder (or if in default, the nature of such default, in reasonable detail). Any such statement delivered pursuant to this Section 10.10 may be relied upon by any prospective purchaser or mortgagee of the Building.
10.11 Landlord’s Expenses Regarding Consents. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord promptly on demand for all reasonable legal and other expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with all requests by Tenant for consent or approval hereunder.
10.12 Rules and Regulations. Tenant shall comply with such reasonable Rules and Regulations as may be adopted from time to time by Landlord to provide for the beneficial operation of the Lot and Building, provided prior written notice of such Rules and Regulations is given by Landlord to Tenant.
10.13 Holding Over. Tenant shall vacate the Premises immediately upon the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease. If Tenant retains possession of the Premises or any part thereof in violation of the immediately preceding sentence without Landlord’s express consent, Tenant shall pay Landlord during such period of holdover Monthly Fixed Rental at the monthly rate of the greater (a) 150% of the Monthly Fixed Rental Rate that would be payable under the Lease during the applicable holdover period if Tenant had properly exercised its applicable extension right, (b) 150% of Monthly Fixed Rental Rate last in effect for the time Tenant thus remains in possession and (c) $125,000.00 per month. The provisions of this Section do not exclude Landlord’s rights of re‑entry or any other right hereunder, including without limitation, the right to remove Tenant through summary proceedings for holding over beyond the expiration of the term of this Lease. If Tenant (a) holds over beyond the expiration or termination of Extension Term II, and such holdover continues for more than twenty-nine (29) days following the expiration or termination of Extension Term II or (b) otherwise holds over after expiration or termination of this Lease and such holdover continues or otherwise exists after February 29, 2020, then, in either case, Tenant shall also be responsible for all of Landlord’s indirect or consequential damages arising from such holdover.
10.14 Assignment and Subletting. Tenant shall not assign, transfer, mortgage or pledge this Lease or grant a security interest in Tenant’s rights hereunder or sublease (which term shall be deemed to include the granting of concessions and licenses and the like) all or any part of the Premises or suffer or permit this Lease or the leasehold estate hereby created or any other rights arising under this Lease to be assigned, transferred or encumbered, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily, involuntarily or by operation of law, or permit the occupancy of the Premises by anyone other than Tenant. Any attempted assignment, transfer, mortgage, pledge, grant of security interest, sublease or other encumbrance, except with prior written approval thereof from Landlord, shall be void. No assignment, transfer, mortgage, grant of security interest, sublease or other encumbrance, whether or not approved, and no indulgence granted by Landlord to any assignee or sublessee, shall in any way impair the continuing primary liability (which after an assignment shall be joint and several with the assignee) of Tenant hereunder, and no approval in a particular instance shall be deemed to be a waiver of the obligation to obtain Landlord’s approval in any other case.
10.15 Overloading and Nuisance. Tenant shall not injure, overload, deface or otherwise harm the Premises, commit any nuisance, permit the emission of any objectionable noise, vibration or odor, make, allow or suffer any waste or make any use of the Premises which is improper, offensive or contrary to any law or ordinance or which will invalidate any of Landlord’s insurance.

11.1 Termination. In the event that greater than twenty-five (25) percent of the Building or the Lot shall be taken by any public authority or for any public use (a “Taking”) then this Lease may be terminated by Tenant effective on the effective date of the Taking. In the event that the Premises shall be destroyed or damaged by fire or casualty (a “Casualty”) and if Landlord’s architect, engineer or contractor shall determine that it will require in excess of forty-five (45) days from the date of the Casualty to restore the Premises, this Lease may be terminated by either Landlord or Tenant by notice to the other within thirty (30) days after the casualty; provided, however, that if the Premises is partially damaged or destroyed by fire or casualty, such that the remainder of the Premises can be safely occupied, Landlord shall not have the right to terminate this Lease, and Tenant shall have the option, at its sole discretion, to occupy such remainder of the Premises, in which event a just proportion of Rent shall be abated. In the case of a Taking, such election, which may be made notwithstanding the fact that Landlord’s entire interest may have been divested, shall be made by the giving of notice by Landlord or Tenant to the other within thirty (30) days after Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, shall receive notice of the Taking.
11.2 Restoration. In the event of a Taking or a Casualty, if neither Landlord nor Tenant exercises the election to terminate provided in Section 11.1, this Lease shall continue in force and a just proportion of Rent, according to the nature and extent of the damages sustained by the Premises, but not in excess of an equitable portion of the net proceeds of insurance recovered by Landlord under the rental insurance carried pursuant to Section 6.2, shall be abated until the Premises, or what may remain thereof, shall be put by Landlord in proper condition for use subject to zoning and building laws or ordinances then in existence, which, unless Landlord or Tenant has exercised its option to terminate pursuant to Section 11.1, Landlord covenants to do with reasonable diligence at Landlord’s expense. Landlord’s obligations with respect to restoration shall not require Landlord to expend more than the net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded for such Casualty or Taking and made available for restoration by Landlord’s mortgagees. “Net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded” refers to the gross amount of such insurance or damages less the reasonable expenses of Landlord in connection with the collection of the same, including without limitation, fees and expenses for legal and appraisal services.
11.3 Award. Irrespective of the form in which recovery may be had by law, all rights to damages or compensation shall belong to Landlord in all cases. Tenant hereby grants to Landlord all of Tenant’s rights to such damages and compensation and covenants to deliver such further assignments thereof as Landlord may from time to time request.
12.1 Events of Default. If:
(a) Tenant shall default in the performance of any of its obligations to pay the Fixed Rental, Additional Rent or any other sum payable hereunder and if such default shall continue for five (5) days after notice from Landlord designating such default;
(b) if within thirty (30) days after notice from Landlord to Tenant specifying any other default or defaults Tenant has not commenced diligently to correct the default or defaults so specified or has not thereafter diligently pursued such correction to completion;
(c) if any assignment for the benefit of creditors shall be made by Tenant;
(d) if Tenant’s leasehold interest shall be taken on execution or other process of law in any action against Tenant;
(e) if a lien or other involuntary encumbrance is filed against Tenant’s leasehold interest, and is not discharged or bonded over of record within ten (10) days thereafter;
(f) if a petition is filed by Tenant for liquidation, or for reorganization or an arrangement or any other relief under any provision of the Bankruptcy Code as then in force and effect; or
(g) if an involuntary petition under any of the provisions of said Bankruptcy Code is filed against Tenant and such involuntary petition is not dismissed within thirty (30) days thereafter,
then, and in any of such cases, Landlord and the agents and servants of Landlord lawfully may, in addition to and not in derogation of any remedies for any preceding breach of covenant, immediately or at any time thereafter in accordance with applicable law, enter into and upon the Premises or any part thereof in the name of the whole, or mail a notice of termination addressed to Tenant, and repossess the same as of Landlord’s former estate and expel Tenant and those claiming through or under Tenant and remove its and their effects without being deemed guilty of any manner of trespass and without prejudice to any remedies which might otherwise be used for arrears of rent or prior breach of covenant, and upon such entry or mailing as aforesaid this Lease shall terminate, Tenant hereby waiving all rights of redemption, if any, to the extent such rights may be lawfully waived.
12.2 Remedies. In the event that this Lease is terminated under any of the provisions contained in Section 12.1, (a) Tenant shall pay forthwith to Landlord all amounts payable by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease up to the date of such termination, and (b) in lieu of all damages beyond the date of such termination, Tenant shall pay forthwith to Landlord, as full and final liquidated damages, an amount equal to the total Rent reserved for the remainder of the then-current Term (prorated on a daily basis); provided, however, that if such termination occurs during Extension Term IV, the total amount of Rent reserved for the remainder of Extension Term IV shall be deemed to be the lesser of (i) the Rent which would have been payable hereunder if this Lease had not been terminated for the period from the date of such termination until the expiration of Extension Term IV (prorated on a daily basis), and (ii) the Rent which would have been payable hereunder if this Lease had not been terminated for a period of ninety (90) days immediately following the date of such termination (prorated on a daily basis), and Tenant shall surrender the Premises in accordance with Section 10.9.
12.3 Remedies Cumulative. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, any and all rights and remedies which Landlord may have under this Lease and at law and equity shall be cumulative and shall not be deemed inconsistent with each other, and any two or more of all such rights and remedies may be exercised at the same time to the greatest extent permitted by law.
12.4 Landlord’s Right to Cure Defaults. At any time following ten (10) days’ prior notice to Tenant (except in cases of emergency when no notice shall be required), Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to) cure any default by Tenant under this Lease, and whenever Landlord so elects, all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, in curing a default shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord as Additional Rent on demand, together with interest thereon at the rate provided in Section 12.7 from the date of payment by Landlord to the date of payment by Tenant.
12.5 Effect of Waivers of Default. Any consent or permission by Landlord to any act or omission which otherwise would be a breach of any covenant or condition herein, or any waiver by Landlord of the breach of any covenant or condition herein, shall not in any way be held or construed (unless expressly so declared) to operate so as to impair the continuing obligation of any covenant or condition herein, or otherwise operate to permit the same or similar acts or omissions except as to the specific instance. The failure of Landlord to seek redress for violation of, or to insist upon the strict performance of, any covenant or condition of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such violation nor prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having all the force and effect of an original violation. The receipt by Landlord of rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant of this Lease shall not be deemed to have been a waiver of such breach by Landlord or of any of Landlord’s remedies on account thereof, including its right of termination for such default.
12.6 No Accord and Satisfaction. No acceptance by Landlord of a lesser sum than the Fixed Rental, Additional Rent or any other charge then due shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest installment of such rent or charge due, unless Landlord elects by notice to Tenant to credit such sum against the most recent installment due. Any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as rent or other charge shall not be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover the balance of such installment or pursue any other remedy under this Lease or otherwise.
12.7 Interest on Overdue Sums. If Tenant fails to pay Fixed Rental, Additional Rent or any other sum payable by Tenant to Landlord by the due date thereof (i.e., the due date disregarding any requirement of notice from Landlord or any period of grace allowed to Tenant), the amount so unpaid shall bear interest at a variable rate (the “Delinquency Rate”) equal to four percent (4%) in excess of the base rate (prime rate) of Bank of America from time to time in effect commencing with the due date and continuing through the day on which payment of such delinquent payment with interest thereon is paid. If such rate is in excess of any maximum interest rate permissible under applicable law, the Delinquency Rate shall be the maximum interest rate permissible under applicable law
12.8 No Consequential Damages. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, except as provided in Section 10.13, in no event shall Landlord or any Landlord
Related Party ever be liable to Tenant or any Tenant Related Party for loss of profits, loss of business, or indirect, consequential, or punitive damages suffered by Tenant or any Tenant Related Party from whatever cause, and in no event shall Tenant or any Tenant Related Party ever be liable to Landlord or any Landlord Related Party for loss of profits, loss of business, or indirect, consequential, or punitive damages suffered by Landlord or any Landlord Related Party from whatever cause.
13.1 Rights of Mortgage Holders. No Fixed Rental, Additional Rent or any other charge shall be paid more than ten (10) days prior to the due date thereof and payments made in violation of this provision shall (except to the extent that such payments are actually received by a mortgagee in possession or in the process of foreclosing its mortgage) be a nullity as against such mortgagee and Tenant shall be liable for the amount of such payments to such mortgagee.
In the event of any act or omission by Landlord which would give Tenant the right to terminate this Lease or to claim a partial or total eviction, Tenant shall not exercise any such right (a) until it shall have given notice, in the manner provided in Section 14.1, of such act or omission to the holder of any mortgage encumbering the Premises whose name and address shall have been furnished to Tenant in writing, at the last address so furnished, and (b) until a reasonable period of time for remedying such act or omission shall have elapsed following the giving of such notice, provided that following the giving of such notice, Landlord or such holder shall, with reasonable diligence, have commenced and continued to remedy such act or omission or to cause the same to be rendered.
In the event any proceedings are brought for the foreclosure of, or in the event of exercise of the power of sale under, any mortgage now or hereafter encumbering the Premises, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser upon such foreclosure or sale or upon any grant of a deed in lieu of foreclosure and recognize such purchaser as Landlord under this Lease.
13.2 Superiority of Lease; Option to Subordinate. Unless Landlord exercises the option set forth below in this Section 13.2, this Lease shall be superior to and shall not be subordinate to any mortgage on the Premises. Landlord shall have the option to subordinate this Lease to any mortgage of the Premises provided that the holder of record thereof enters into a non-disturbance agreement with Tenant in such holder’s customary form. Tenant agrees to execute and deliver any appropriate instruments necessary to carry out the agreements contained in this Section 13.2.
14.1 Notices from One Party to the Other. All notices required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and addressed, if to Tenant, at the Address of Tenant or such other address as Tenant shall have last designated by notice in writing to Landlord and, if to Landlord, at the Original Address of Landlord or such other address as Landlord shall have last designated by notice in writing to Tenant. Notices shall be sent via a nationally recognized overnight courier or by

14.5 Acts of God. In any case where either party hereto is required to do any act, delays caused by or resulting from acts of God, war, civil commotion, fire, flood or other casualty, labor difficulties, shortages of labor, materials or equipment, government regulations, unusually severe weather, or other causes beyond such party’s reasonable control (“Force Majeure”) shall not be counted in determining the time during which work shall be completed, whether such time be designated by a fixed date, a fixed time or a “reasonable time”, and such time shall be deemed to be extended by the period of such delay.
14.6 Landlord’s Default. Landlord shall not be deemed to be in default in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder unless it shall fail to perform such obligations and unless within thirty (30) days after notice from Tenant to Landlord specifying such default Landlord has not commenced diligently to correct the default so specified or has not thereafter diligently pursued such correction to completion.

Tenant covenants to defend with counsel approved by Landlord, hold harmless and indemnify Landlord from and against any and all cost, expense or liability for any compensation, commissions and charges claimed by any broker or agent in connection with this Lease.
