Landlord, for and in consideration of the rents herein reserved and of the covenants and agreements herein contained on the part of Tenant to be performed, hereby leases to Tenant and Tenant accepts from Landlord, the entire first and second floors of the office building known as 18 Crosby Drive, Bedford, Massachusetts (the Building), containing approximately 50,000 rentable square feet in area as shown on Exhibit 1.1-1 attached hereto and made a part hereof (the Premises). The Premises shall specifically include the loading docks and other loading facilities that are part of or appurtenant to the Building, so long as Tenant is leasing the entire Premises originally leased by Tenant hereunder. The Premises, the Building, the Common Areas (defined below) and the land upon which the same are located, which is legally described in Exhibit 1.1-2 (the Land), together with all other buildings and improvements thereon and thereunder are collectively referred to as the Property. The Property is also known as Xchange at Bedford and currently has an address of 4-18 Crosby Drive, as shown on Exhibit 1.3, attached. The parties agree that the rentable square footage of the Premises set forth above is conclusive and binding, subject to adjustment only in connection with the expansion of the Premises or as set forth in this Lease.
1.2 Common Areas. Landlord hereby grants to Tenant during the term of this Lease, a right to use, in common with the others entitled to such use, the Common Areas as they from time to time exist, subject to the rights, powers and privileges herein reserved to Landlord. The term Common Areas as used herein will include all areas and facilities outside the Premises that are provided and designated by Landlord for general non-exclusive use and convenience of Tenant and other tenants at the Property. Common Areas include but are not limited to the fitness center, cafeteria, common hallways, lobbies, stairways and elevators, if any, pedestrian sidewalks, landscaped areas, loading areas, roadways, parking areas, rights of way, walking and jogging paths, if any. Landlord may designate certain Common Areas for the exclusive use of one or more buildings located on the Property. Landlord acknowledges that the Common Areas located within the Building will not serve any other tenants in buildings at the Property so long as Tenant is leasing the entire Premises originally leased by Tenant hereunder.
1.3 Parking. During the Term of this Lease, Tenant shall be entitled to use, at no additional charge (other than to the extent included in Operating Expenses and Taxes), the parking areas at the Property shown on Exhibit 1.3 attached hereto (the Parking Areas) in common with other tenants of the Property, but in any event Tenants use shall not exceed the ratio of 3.0 spaces per 1,000 rentable square feet of the Premises (up to 150 spaces) on an unreserved, first-come, first-serve basis, except that Tenant shall have the exclusive right to use the area designated as Tenants Visitor Parking Area on Exhibit 1.3, attached, for parking by Tenant and its visitors. Landlord, at Tenants sole cost and expense, will, by the use of signs and markings, designate the spaces within such area as being intended for the use of Tenants visitors, but shall not be obligated to police the use of such spaces, which Tenant recognizes are to be operated on a self-parking basis. The Parking Areas shall be available for use twenty-four (24) hours a day, every day of the year during the Term, subject to Force Majeure, casualty, and condemnation, and shall be illuminated when necessary. Further, Landlord shall keep and maintain the Parking Areas in a good and clean condition.

Subject to Tenants rights set forth herein, Landlord may designate parking facilities at the Property for the handicapped, visitors to the Property, and for exclusive use by other tenants. Landlord may install signage or implement a pass or sticker system to control parking use, and may employ valet parking (including by use of off-site premises) to meet the requirements of this Section. To the extent applicable to Tenants use of the parking spaces, the provisions of this Lease shall apply, and Landlord may promulgate rules and regulations of general applicability from time to time with respect to such use. Landlord assumes no responsibility whatsoever for loss or damage due to fire, theft or otherwise to any automobile(s) parked in
the Parking Areas or to any personal property therein, however caused, and Tenant agrees, upon request from Landlord from time to time, to notify its officers, employees, agents and invitees of such limitation of liability.

(i) Tenant shall be responsible, at its sole cost and expense, for installing the Tenants Equipment. In addition to complying with Section 8.3, below, Tenant shall not install or operate any portion of the Tenants Equipment until Tenant shall have obtained Landlords prior written approval of Tenants plans and specifications therefor, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Landlord will inform Tenant in writing at the time of its review and approval of such plans and specifications whether Landlord will require the same to be removed by Tenant up on the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.
(ii) Landlord shall have no obligation to provide any services to the Tenants Equipment, provided Tenant shall have the right to connect Tenants Equipment to existing base building utility systems, subject to Landlords right to reasonably approve such connections. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense and otherwise in accordance with the provisions of this Section 1.4, arrange for all utility services required for the operation of the Tenants Equipment.
(iii) Tenant shall have no right to make any changes, alterations or other improvements to the Tenants Equipment without Landlords prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided, however, that Tenant shall have the right to maintain and make repairs to the Tenants Equipment.
(iv) Subject to Section 9.6.1, Tenant shall be responsible for the cost of repairing any damage to the Building, Property or the office park caused by the installation, use and removal of the Tenants Equipment.
(v) Except for assignees of Tenant or subtenants of all or a portion of the Premises, no other person, firm or entity (including without limitation, other tenants, licensees or occupants of the office park) shall have the right to connect to the Tenants Equipment other than Tenant.
(vi) To the maximum extent permitted by law, Tenants use of the Tenants Equipment shall be at the sole risk of Tenant, and Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant in the event that the Tenants Equipment is damaged for any reason.
(vii) In addition to the indemnification obligations of Tenant set forth in this Lease including those contained in Section 9.4(a), below, Tenant shall, to the maximum extent permitted by law and except to the extent arising from the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or any Landlord Parties (as defined below), indemnify, defend and hold Landlord and the Landlord Parties harmless from any and all claims, losses, demands, actions or causes of actions suffered by any person, firm, corporation or other entity arising from the installation, use or removal of the Tenants Equipment.
Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, secure the approvals of all governmental authorities and all permits required by governmental authorities having jurisdiction over such approvals for the Tenants Equipment, and shall provide Landlord with copies of such approvals and permits prior to commencing any work with respect thereto. In addition, Tenant shall be solely responsible for all costs and expenses in connection with the installation, maintenance, use and removal of the Tenants Equipment, except that Tenant will not be obligated to pay Landlord any additional rental for that portion of the Property upon which Tenants Equipment is located. In connection therewith, Tenant shall provide Landlord with evidence on an annual basis of the existence of a maintenance contract for the Generator
with a service provider reasonably acceptable to Landlord. Tenant shall have access to those portions of the Building and the Property on which the Tenants Equipment is located for the purposes of inspecting, repairing, maintaining and replacing the same, subject in all events to Landlords reasonable rules and regulations regarding such access (it being understood and agreed, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, that access to the rooftops of the Building is controlled by Landlord).

ARTICLE 4 RENT AND SECURITY
4.1 Base Rent.
4.1.1 Schedule of Monthly Rent Payments. Beginning with the Commencement Date and continuing throughout the Term, Tenant shall pay to or upon the order of Landlord an annual rental (the Base Rent) as set forth below which shall be payable in consecutive monthly installments on or before the first day of each calendar month in advance in the monthly amount set forth below:

4.1.2 Manner of Payment. All payments of rent shall be made without demand, deduction, counterclaim, set-off, discount or abatement (except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Lease) in lawful money of the United States of America. If the Commencement Date should occur on a day other than the first day of a calendar month, or the Expiration Date should occur on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, then the monthly installment of Base Rent for such fractional month shall be prorated upon a daily basis based upon a thirty (30)-day paid month.
4.2 Additional Rent. Tenant shall pay to Landlord all charges and other amounts required under this Lease and the same shall constitute additional rent hereunder (herein called Additional Rent), including, without limitation, any sums due resulting from the provisions of Article 5 hereof. All such amounts and charges shall be payable to Landlord in accordance with Section 4.3 hereof. Landlord shall have the same remedies for a default in the payment of Additional Rent as for a default in the payment of Base Rent.

4.5 Late Charges. If Tenant shall fail to pay any Rent within five (5) days after the date same is due and payable or if any check received by Landlord from Tenant shall be dishonored, Tenant agrees that Landlords actual damages resulting therefrom are difficult to fix or ascertain. As a result, Tenant shall pay to Landlord (a) an administrative fee equal to five percent (5%) per month on the amount due, and (b) interest on the amount due from its due date until paid at the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the maximum legal rate that Landlord may charge Tenant. Such charges shall be paid to Landlord together with such unpaid amounts as an administrative fee to compensate Landlord for administrative expenses and its cost of funds.
4.6 Security Deposit.
4.6.1 Letter of Credit Amount. On or before July 24, 2017, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a security deposit (the Security Deposit) in the form of a Letter of Credit (as defined below) in the amount of $117,156.33 for the faithful performance of all terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease. Tenant agrees that its failure to deliver the Security Deposit to Landlord as required in the preceding sentence following notice from Landlord and Tenants failure to cure within three (3) business days after such notice, shall, at Landlords election, be a default under this Lease for which there shall be no further cure.
4.6.2. Letter of Credit Requirements. Each letter of credit provided to Landlord hereunder as the Security Deposit shall be in the form of an unconditional, irrevocable, standby letter of credit which shall be in full force and effect for the periods required hereby, and shall meet all of the following conditions (a Letter of Credit):
(a) it shall be issued for the benefit of Landlord by an Eligible Bank (defined below) approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned;
(b) it shall be effective on the date of this Lease and have a term of not less than one (1) year following its date of issuance and contain automatic year-to-year renewal provisions subject to the Letter of Credit issuers obligation to notify Landlord in writing by certified or registered mail of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Letter of Credit;
(c) the expiration date of the Letter of Credit for the final Lease Year of the Term shall be at least sixty (60) days following the Expiration Date of this Lease;
(d) it shall provide for the amount thereof as set forth in Subsection 4.6.1 to be available to Landlord in multiple drawings conditioned only upon presentation of a sight draft;
(e) it shall be assignable by Landlord to its successors, assigns and mortgagees and by any successive beneficiaries thereof at no cost to transferor or transferee (Tenant agreeing to pay such charges in connection with any transfer of the Letter of Credit), and shall expressly permit multiple assignments; and
(f) it shall be in such form as shall be acceptable to Landlord in its reasonable discretion.
An Eligible Bank shall mean a commercial or savings bank organized under the laws of the United States or any state thereof or the District of Columbia and having total assets in excess of $1,000,000,000.00 which shall be a financial institution having a rating of not less than BBB or its equivalent by Standard and Poors Corporation and subject to a Thompson Watch Rating of C or better. Landlord hereby acknowledges that Pacific Western Bank or Square One Bank is an Eligible Bank as of the date hereof. Tenant, at its expense, shall cause the issuing bank to provide Landlords mortgage lender with a written acknowledgment which evidences its consent to Landlords collateral assignment of the proceeds of the Letter of Credit and acknowledgment of the security interest of such mortgage lender therein within ten (10) business days following the request of Landlord or Landlords mortgagee therefor.
4.6.3 Substitute Letter of Credit. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a substitute Letter of Credit that satisfies the requirements for a Letter of Credit stated in this Subsection 4.6.2 for the applicable period not later than ten (10) days following delivery of a non-renewal notice by the Letter of Credit issuer with respect to the Letter of Credit issued to Landlord or thirty (30) days prior to the scheduled expiration of the Letter of Credit, whichever first occurs (such date, the Re-Delivery Deadline). If Tenant fails to deliver the substitute Letter of Credit within such ten (10) day period or such thirty (30) period, as applicable, Landlord shall have the right to draw the Letter of Credit and receive the proceeds as a cash Security Deposit. Tenant agrees that,
notwithstanding any provision of this Lease to the contrary, its failure to furnish Landlord with the required Security Deposit in the form of a substitute Letter of Credit in compliance with the requirements for the initial Letter of Credit prior to the Re-Delivery Deadline shall not be subject to any rights of notice or cure under this Lease.
4.6.4 Landlords Rights Upon Default. Upon the occurrence of any of the Events of Default described in Article 13 hereof, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to Landlord under this Lease, Landlord shall have the right to present the Letter of Credit for payment by the issuing bank and the proceeds thereof shall be due and payable to Landlord in accordance with the terms hereof and the Letter of Credit. Tenant agrees that Landlord may, without waiving any of Landlords other rights and remedies under this Lease upon the occurrence of any of the Events of Default, apply the Security Deposit to remedy any failure by Tenant to perform any of the terms, covenants or conditions to be performed by Tenant under this Lease and to compensate Landlord for any damages incurred as a result of any such Event of Default. If Landlord uses any portion of the Security Deposit to cure any Event of Default by Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall forthwith replenish the Security Deposit to the original amount within ten (10) days following written notice from Landlord in the manner directed by Landlord in such notice (which may be in the form of a new or amended Letter of Credit, or in the form of a cash payment). If Tenant fails to restore the full amount of the Security Deposit within such 10 day period, then the amount of such deficiency shall be subject to the charges described in Section 4.5. During any period that Landlord is holding the Security Deposit in the form of cash, Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from its general funds, and Tenant shall not be entitled to interest on any such deposit.
4.6.5 Sale of Building. In the event of a sale or other transfer of the Building (or Landlords interest therein), Landlord shall transfer the balance of the Security Deposit or credit the same to the new owner or transferee. Upon any such transfer and the written agreement by the successor landlord that it has received the Security Deposit and that it has assumed all of Landlords obligations under this Lease, Landlord shall thereupon be released by Tenant from all liability for the return of the Security Deposit; and, thereafter, Tenant shall look to the new landlord for the return of such Security Deposit. If no notice of an Event of Default is outstanding for which a cure has not been completed at the end of the Term, Landlord shall, within sixty (60) days after the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease, return the Security Deposit, or so much as has not been applied by Landlord as provided herein, to Tenant.
4.7 Independence of Covenants. Landlords and Tenants covenants herein are independent and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant acknowledges that its covenant to pay Rent hereunder is independent of Landlords obligations hereunder, and that, in the event that Tenant shall have a claim against Landlord, Tenant shall not have the right to deduct the amount allegedly owed to Tenant from any Rent due hereunder, it being understood that Tenants sole remedy for recovering upon such claim shall be to bring an independent legal action against Landlord. As such, Tenants obligation so to pay Rent under the Lease shall be absolute, unconditional, and independent and shall not be discharged or otherwise affected by any law or regulation now or hereafter applicable to the Premises, or any other restriction on Tenants use, or, except as otherwise expressly provided in the Lease, any casualty or taking, or any failure by Landlord to perform or other occurrence, and Tenant waives all rights now or hereafter existing to terminate, quit or surrender this Lease or the Premises or any part thereof, or to assert any defense in the nature of constructive eviction to any action seeking to recover Rent, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease. Nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed to prevent Tenant from the benefit of its express remedy under Section 6.1 of this Lease or the benefit of the provisions applicable following casualty and condemnation pursuant to Articles 10 and 11 of this Lease, in each case on the terms set forth therein.

contractors or assigns of the terms and conditions of any lease, or any applicable building code, governmental rule, regulation or law; (17) contingency or replacement reserves; (18) costs incurred in remediation of the Property required as the result of Hazardous Substances therein or thereon; (19) except as permitted in subparagraph (g) above, any capital cost incurred in connection with modifying, removing, upgrading or replacing the Building Systems (as hereinafter defined); (20) costs, other than those incurred in ordinary maintenance and repair, for sculptures, paintings, fountains or other objects of art or the display of such item; (21) contributions to charitable or political organizations; (22) Taxes; (23) the cost of repairs or other work to the extent Landlord is reimbursed by insurance or condemnation proceeds, by other tenants (other than through the payment of Operating Expenses) or from any other source, or for which Landlord would have been reimbursed by insurance which Landlord is required to carry under this Lease (whether or not Landlord does so); (24) costs incurred in connection with the sale, financing or refinancing of the Property or any portion thereof; (25) fines, interest and penalties incurred due to the late payment of Taxes or Operating Expenses except to the extent resulting from Tenants failure to timely pay Taxes or Operating Expenses; (26) insurance deductibles in excess of commercially reasonable deductibles; and (27) the amount of a judgment or settlement against Landlord which is not covered by the insurance required to be carried by Landlord under this Lease.
Operating Expenses that are incurred jointly for the benefit of the Building and one or more other buildings or properties, whether pursuant to a reciprocal easement agreement, common area agreement or otherwise, may be allocated between the Building and the other buildings or properties in accordance with the ratio of their respective rentable areas calculated using a consistent methodology or on any other reasonable basis determined by Landlord. Operating Expenses incurred for the benefit of less than all of the tenants at the Property or in the Building may be allocated among such tenants based on the rentable square footage of their respective premises or on any other reasonable basis determined by Landlord.
Tenants Share: Tenants Share shall be a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the rentable area of the Premises and the denominator of which (i) shall be the rentable area of the Building, with respect to Operating Expenses of and pertaining to the Building, and (ii) the rentable area of the Property, with respect to Operating Expenses of and pertaining to the office park at the Property. On the Commencement Date the Tenants Share pertaining to the Property is 10.50% (50,000 RSF/476,207 RSF), and the Tenants Share pertaining to the Building is 100% (50,000 RSF/50,000 RSF). The Tenants Share shall be recalculated from time to time in the event that there shall be a change in the rentable area of either the Premises, the Building, or the Property. For purposes hereof, Operating Expenses shall be allocated either to the Building or the office park at the Property, but not both (i.e., the provisions of this paragraph shall not operate to enable Landlord to charge Tenant for the same Operating Expense twice).
Landlords Statement: An instrument containing a computation of any Additional Rent for Operating Expenses or Taxes due pursuant to the provisions of this Article 5.
5.2 Payment of Taxes. Tenant shall pay, as Additional Rent, Tenants Share of Taxes payable in respect of any Tax Year falling wholly or partially within the Term (which payment shall be adjusted by proration with respect to any such partial Tax Year). Within thirty (30) days after the issuance by the Town of Bedford or other applicable governmental authority of the final bill for Taxes for each Tax Year, Landlord shall submit to Tenant a copy of such bill, together with Landlords Statement and Tenant shall pay the Additional Rent set forth on such Landlords Statement (less the amount of estimated payments paid by Tenant on account of prior estimated payments in accordance with this paragraph, if any) as set forth herein. Landlord, at its option, may require Tenant to make monthly payments on account of Tenants Share of Taxes. The monthly payments shall be one-twelfth (1/12th) of the amount of Tenants Share of Taxes and shall be payable on or before the first day of each month during the Term, in advance, in an amount reasonably estimated by Landlord and billed by Landlord to Tenant; provided, that, Landlord shall have the right initially to determine such monthly estimates and to reasonably revise such estimates from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any change in the monthly payments required to be made by Tenant under this Section 5.2 shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after receipt by Tenant of notice of such change.
5.3 Payment of Operating Expenses. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, Tenants Share of all Operating Expenses in respect of each Expense Year. Tenant shall pay a sum equal to one-twelfth (1/12) of the amount of Tenants Share of Operating Expenses for each Expense Year on or before the first day of each month of such Expense Year, in advance, in an amount
reasonably estimated by Landlord and billed by Landlord to Tenant; provided, that, Landlord shall have the right initially to determine such monthly estimates and to reasonably revise such estimates from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any change in the monthly payments required to be made by Tenant under this Section 5.3 shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after receipt by Tenant of notice of such change.
5.4 Payment of Utility Expenses. The Building is separately metered for electrical service, water and sewer service and gas service. Water and sewer service is not billed directly to Tenant, and Tenant pays for its water and sewer service as a part of Tenants Share of Operating Expenses. Tenant shall take all steps required by the applicable utility company to provide for direct billing to Tenant for the electricity and gas furnished to the Premises during the Term, including, without limitation, making applications to the applicable utility company in connection with such service and making any deposits as such utility company shall require. Tenant agrees to pay, or cause to be paid, all charges for electricity and gas furnished to the Premises (or by special facilities serving the Premises, if any) during the Term, punctually as and when due. From time to time, if requested by Landlord, Tenant shall provide Landlord with evidence of payment to, and good standing with, such utility companies as Landlord may reasonably require. Tenant covenants and agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend Landlord against all liability, cost and damage arising out of or in any way connected to Tenants non-payment or late payment of any and all charges and rates and deposits to such utility companies relating to the Premises during the Term.
If at any time during the Term the Building is not separately metered for electricity and payments on account of electricity are made to Landlord, Landlord shall bill Tenant for such usage based on Landlords reasonable estimate (taking into account Tenants prior usage of electricity) and Tenants rate of payment shall increase from time to time based upon the increases in rate charged by the utility company to Landlord. Landlord shall have the right to issue supplemental billing to Tenant from time to time to account for such increases. Any electrical charges payable to Landlord in respect of the Premises shall constitute Additional Rent under this Lease (but shall not be included as an Operating Expense), and shall be due and payable monthly in advance on the first day of each calendar month during the Term. In such event, Landlord shall have the right to charge Tenant an estimated amount, payable as Additional Rent on the first of each month, in advance, together with payments of Base Rent, on account of Tenants estimated electricity usage, with an annual reconciliation based on actual meter readings such that Tenant will pay the amount due hereunder.
5.5 Landlords Statements.
5.5.1 Delivery of Statements. Landlord will deliver Landlords Statements to Tenant during the Term. Landlord shall endeavor, within one hundred twenty (120) days after the expiration of each Expense Year, to prepare and furnish Tenant with Landlords Statement showing the Operating Expenses and Taxes incurred during such Expense Year. Landlords delay or failure to render Landlords Statement with respect to any Expense Year or any Tax Year beyond a date specified herein shall not prejudice Landlords right to render a Landlords Statement with respect to that or any subsequent Expense Year or subsequent Tax Year. The obligations of Landlord and Tenant under the provisions of this Article with respect to any Additional Rent incurred during the Term shall survive the expiration or any sooner termination of the Term. If Landlord fails to give Tenant a statement of projected Operating Expenses prior to the commencement of any Expense Year, Tenant shall continue to pay Operating Expenses in accordance with the previous statement, until Tenant receives a new statement from Landlord. Landlords Statements with respect to Operating Expenses and Taxes shall be conclusive between the parties absent manifest error, subject to the provisions of Section 5.5.2, below.
5.5.2 Tenant Inspection Rights. During the one hundred twenty (120)-day period after receipt of any Landlords Statement with respect to Operating Expenses and Taxes (the Review Period), Tenant may inspect and audit Landlords records relevant to the cost and expense items reflected in such Landlords Statement (a Tenant Audit) at a reasonable time mutually agreeable to Landlord and Tenant during Landlords usual business hours. Each Landlords Statement shall be conclusive and binding upon Tenant unless within one hundred eighty (180) days after receipt of such Landlords Statement Tenant shall notify Landlord that it disputes the correctness of Landlords Statement, specifying the respects in which Landlords Statement is claimed to be incorrect. Tenants right to conduct any Tenant Audit shall be conditioned upon the following: (a) no Event of Default shall be ongoing at the time that Tenant seeks to conduct the Tenant Audit; (b) in no event shall any Tenant Audit be performed by a firm retained on a contingency fee basis; (c) the Tenant Audit shall be concluded no
later than sixty (60) days after Landlord first makes its records available to Tenant for inspection and audit; (d) any Tenant Audit shall not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of Landlords business; (e) Tenant and its agent conducting the Tenant Audit shall each execute a commercially reasonable confidentiality agreement for Landlords benefit prior to commencing any Tenant Audit; (f) Tenants agents audit report shall, at no charge to Landlord, be submitted in draft form for Landlords review and comment before the final approved audit report is delivered to Landlord, and Landlord shall have the right to point out errors or make suggestions with respect to such audit report, and any appropriate comments or clarifications by Landlord which are accepted by Tenants agent shall be incorporated into the final audit report, it being the intention of the parties that Landlords right to review is intended to prevent errors and avoid the dispute resolution mechanism set forth below and not to unduly influence Tenants agent in the preparation of the final audit report; (g) Tenant shall only be able to conduct one (1) Tenant Audit for each Lease Year during the Term; and (h) the Tenant Audit shall be conducted by Tenant at its sole cost and expense unless the results of such Tenant Audit show that Landlords Statement overstated the amount of Operating Expenses and Taxes owed by Tenant for the period covered by the Tenant Audit by more than five percent (5%), in which case Landlord shall be responsible for payment of such costs and expenses within thirty (30) days after receipt by Landlord of an invoice therefor. If Tenant makes a timely objection, Tenant shall nonetheless pay the amount shown on the Landlords Statement in the manner prescribed in this Lease, without any prejudice to such objection, however, any overpayments identified during any Tenant Audit, if any, shall be applied as a credit against the amount of Additional Rent owed by Tenant immediately following the completion of the Tenant Audit.
5.6 Adjustments. If the actual amount of Tenants Share of Operating Expenses for any Expense Year or Tenants Share of Taxes for any Tax Year exceeds the estimated amount thereof paid by Tenant for such Expense Year or Tax Year, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord the difference between the estimated amount paid by Tenant and the actual amount of such Additional Rent payable by Tenant. This Additional Rent payment shall be due and payable within thirty (30) days following delivery of Landlords Statement. If the total amount of estimated payments made by Tenant in respect of Tenants Share of Operating Expenses for any Expense Year or Tenants Share of Taxes for any Tax Year shall exceed the actual amount of such Additional Rent payable by Tenant, then such excess amount shall be credited against the monthly installments of Additional Rent due and payable from Tenant to Landlord hereunder until such amount shall have been refunded in full to Tenant after delivery of the applicable Landlords Statement. Any excess payments made by Tenant during the Term that have not been so applied and are outstanding at the end of the Term shall be paid to Tenant promptly following delivery of Landlords Statement for the final Expense Year and final Tax Year, as applicable. Tenants obligations under this Section 5.6 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Term.
ARTICLE 6 SERVICES AND UTILITIES
6.1 Services. Landlord shall provide the following services to the Building and the Common Areas, as applicable (subject to Tenants reimbursement and payment obligations therefor in accordance with the operation of Article 5 hereof):
(a) Janitor services in and about the office and laboratory portions of the Premises in accordance with the cleaning specifications set forth in Exhibit 6.1, Saturdays, Sundays and union and state and federal government holidays (the Holidays) excepted. In addition, Landlord shall strip and re-wax the laboratory floors on a semi-annual basis.
(b) Heat and air-conditioning to the Building as required to maintain comfortable temperature 24 hours per day, 7 days per week; provided, however, Tenant shall be responsible for all utility services and the cost of the same necessary to produce such heat and air-conditioning in accordance with Section 5.4, above, and Tenant shall pay an additional charge for the use of the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation by Tenant for the office portions of the Premises after Normal Business Hours (Overtime HVAC) in accordance with Section 6.2, below. The expense charged by Landlord to Tenant for any Overtime HVAC shall be based on Landlords actual cost for such service (currently $20.00 per hour), but subject to change from time to time based on Landlords actual cost to provide such service.
(c) Hot running water for lavatory purposes and for laboratory, pilot production and research and development purposes, at the levels existing as of the date hereof, and cold water to the Building for cleaning, fire protection, drinking, lavatory and toilet purposes, and for laboratory, pilot production and research and development purposes, at the levels existing as of the date hereof, drawn through fixtures installed by Landlord or by Tenant with Landlords written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
(d) Maintenance of the Common Areas so that they are clean and free from accumulations of debris, rubbish and garbage and exterior drives, walkways and parking areas free of accumulations of snow and otherwise in good order, condition and repair.
(e) Access to the Premises and the Common Areas serving the Building twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week, fifty-two (52) weeks per year, except for emergency situations outside of Landlords control and subject to Landlords Rules and Regulations. Other services shall be available as provided in Section 6.2 hereof.
Landlord shall have the right to select the utility providers (except to the extent that Tenant contracts directly with such providers) and Tenant shall pay all actual costs associated with obtaining the utility service as provided in Article 5 hereof. Landlord agrees to furnish or cause to be furnished to the Premises the utilities and services described herein, subject to the conditions and in accordance with the standards set forth herein. Landlords failure to furnish any of such services when such failure is caused by accidents, the making of repairs, alterations or improvements, labor difficulties, difficulty in obtaining adequate supply of fuel, electricity, steam, water or other service or supplies from the sources from which they are usually obtained for the Building, or governmental constraints or any other cause beyond Landlords reasonable control, shall not result in any liability to Landlord. Tenant shall not be entitled to any abatement or reduction of rent by reason of such failure, no eviction of Tenant shall result from such failure and Tenant shall not be relieved from the performance of any covenant or agreement in this Lease. In the event of any failure, stoppage or interruption thereof, Landlord shall diligently attempt to resume service promptly.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there shall be an interruption, curtailment or suspension of any utility or service necessary for the occupancy of the Premises and required to be provided by Landlord pursuant to this Section 6.1 (and no reasonably equivalent alternative service or utility is provided by Landlord) that shall materially interfere with Tenants use and enjoyment of all or a material portion of the Premises (a Service Interruption), and if (i) such Service Interruption shall continue for five (5) consecutive business days following receipt by Landlord of written notice from Tenant describing such Service Interruption (the Service Interruption Notice), (ii) such Service Interruption is not the result of Force Majeure or any of Tenants acts or omissions, and (iii) the restoration of such Service Interruption is in the reasonable control of Landlord, then Tenant shall be entitled to an equitable abatement of Base Rent and Tenants Share of Operating Expenses and Taxes, based on the nature and duration of the Service Interruption, the area of the Premises affected, and the then current Base Rent and Tenants Share of Operating Expenses and Taxes, for the period that shall begin on the 6th day of such Service Interruption and that shall end on the day such Service Interruption ceases. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, but subject to Article 10 and Article 11 (which shall govern in the event of a casualty or condemnation), the remedies expressly provided in this paragraph shall be Tenants sole recourse and remedy in the event of an interruption of Landlord services to the Premises.
6.2 Additional Services. Landlord shall impose reasonable charges and may establish reasonable rules and regulations for the following: (a) following a request therefor by Tenant or following prior notice to Tenant by Landlord, the use of any heating, air-conditioning, ventilation by Tenant for the office portion of the Premises after Normal Business Hours (provided that any such charge for such use shall be in accordance with Section 6.1, above), (b) following a request therefor by Tenant or following prior notice to Tenant by Landlord, the use or consumption of any other building services, supplies or utilities after Normal Business Hours, and any unanticipated, additional costs incurred by Landlord to operate the Building after Normal Business Hours as a result thereof; (c) if Landlord has provided Tenant with prior notice, additional or unusual janitorial services required because of any non-building standard improvements in the Premises, the carelessness of Tenant, or the nature of Tenants business; and (d) the removal of any refuse and rubbish from the Premises except for discarded material placed in wastepaper baskets and left for emptying as an incident to Landlords normal cleaning of the Premises in accordance with Exhibit 6.1. For the purposes of this Lease, Normal Business Hours shall mean the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (other than Holidays).
6.3 Excessive Current.
6.3.1 Prohibited Activities. Tenant shall comply with the conditions of occupancy and connected electrical load reasonably established by Landlord for the Building. Tenant covenants that at no time shall the use of electrical energy in the Premises exceed the capacity of the existing feeders or wiring installations then serving the Premises.
6.3.2 Landlords Right to Survey Usage. Landlord may survey Tenants use of services from time to time. If Tenant ceases to lease 100% of the Premises initially leased hereunder, Landlord shall have the right to redistribute electricity in the Building at its sole cost and expense to provide for a minimum level of electrical load to any other tenants premises in the Building consistent with first class office use.
6.4 Maintenance of Common Areas. The manner in which the Common Areas are maintained and operated and the expenditures therefor shall be at the sole discretion of Landlord and in accordance with the standards of comparable buildings in the Bedford submarket of the Route 128 North submarket. Landlord reserves the right from time to time to (a) make changes in the shape, size, location and appearance of the land and improvements which constitute the Common Areas, provided that with respect to Common Areas in the Building or solely serving the Building, Landlord shall not materially impair Tenants ability to operate its business in or reasonable access to the Premises, except temporary impairments required by said changes; (b) make such improvements, alterations and repairs to the Common Areas as may be required by governmental authorities or by utility companies servicing the Property; (c) construct, maintain and operate lighting and other facilities on all said areas and improvements; (d) grant exclusive parking rights to Property tenants (except in or to the Tenants Visitor Parking Area); and (e) to add or remove improvements and facilities to or from the Common Areas (except in or to the Tenants Visitor Parking Area). The use of the Common Areas shall be subject to such reasonable regulations and changes therein as Landlord shall make from time to time, including (but not by way of limitation) the right to close from time to time, if necessary, all or any portion of the Common Areas to such extent as may be legally sufficient, in the opinion of Landlords counsel, to prevent a dedication thereof or the accrual of rights of any person or of the public therein; provided, however, Landlord shall do so at such times and in such manner as shall minimize any disruption to Tenant to the extent reasonably possible. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, Landlord shall not grant to any non-tenant of the Building any rights with respect to the Building that are effective during the Term.
Landlord further reserves the right to add to the Property and to develop and finance additions and other improvements in the Common Areas of the Property as it may determine in its discretion. This may entail subdivision of the land at the Property (except in or to the Tenants Visitor Parking Area), a separate ground lease of a portion of the land at the Property, or creation of a condominium or common interest community in a manner that allows development of any addition or other improvements as an independent project. In the case of the development of any addition or other improvements as an independent project, the same shall be excluded from the term Property as used in this Lease. In the event any land is added to the Property, Exhibit 1.1-2 shall be deemed amended accordingly. In the event the Property, as originally defined herein, is subdivided, then the term Property shall be deemed to refer only to the parcel or parcels of land on which the Building is located and Exhibit 1.1-2 shall be deemed amended accordingly. In the event the Property is submitted to a condominium regime, the Property shall be deemed to be the condominium unit in which the Building is located and all common areas and facilities of the condominium. This Lease shall be subject and subordinate to any such subdivision, ground lease, or condominium (and covenants and easements granted in connection therewith) so long as the same do not, in any material respect, reduce Landlords obligations under this Lease, increase Tenants obligations under this Lease, or reduce Tenants rights under this Lease. Tenant agrees to enter into any instruments reasonably requested by Landlord in connection with the foregoing so long as the same are not inconsistent with the rights of Tenant under this Lease, including a subordination of this Lease to a ground lease or documents creating a condominium or common interest community at the Property. Tenant agrees not to take any action to oppose any application by Landlord for any permits, consents or approvals from any governmental authorities for any redevelopment or additional development of all or any part of the Property, and will use all commercially reasonable efforts to prevent any of Tenants subtenants or assigns, and Tenants and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, contractors and consultants (collectively, Tenant Responsible Parties) from doing so. For purposes hereof, action to oppose any such application shall include, without limitation, communications with any governmental authorities requesting that any such application be limited or altered. Also for purposes hereof, commercially reasonable efforts shall include, without limitation, commercially reasonable efforts, upon receiving notice of any such action to oppose any application on the part of any Tenant Responsible Parties, to obtain injunctive relief, and, in the case of a subtenant, exercising remedies against the subtenant under its sublease.
6.5 Access to Premises.
6.5.1 Landlords Right of Entry. Landlord shall have the right to enter the Premises without abatement of Rent at all reasonable times upon reasonable prior notice to Tenant (except in emergencies when no advance notice shall be required), (a) to supply any service to be provided by Landlord to Tenant hereunder, (b) to show the Premises to Landlords Mortgagee (as hereinafter defined) and to prospective purchasers, mortgagees and tenants, (c) to inspect, alter, improve or repair the Premises and any portion of the Property, and (d) to introduce conduits, risers, pipes and ducts to and through the Premises, provided that in exercising any such right, Landlord will cause all such conduits, risers, pipes and ducts to be placed above dropped ceilings, within walls, or below floors or in closets, to the extent reasonably practicable. In conducting any such activities, Landlord shall use reasonable efforts not to unreasonably interfere with the conduct of Tenants business operations in or access to the Premises or Tenants Equipment in a manner inconsistent with first-class buildings.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant may identify certain areas of the Premises not to exceed 15,000 rentable square feet in the aggregate that require limited access and special security measures (Secure Areas) by written notice to Landlord from time-to-time. Landlord shall not enter the Secure Areas without being accompanied by a representative of Tenant except in the event of an emergency threatening life or property or to provide services required to be provided to Tenant by Landlord pursuant to this Lease, or otherwise with Tenants prior consent.
Landlord shall cause its janitorial vendors cleaning the laboratory and any Landlord personnel entering portions of the Secure Areas that are used for laboratory or pilot production purposes to comply with Tenants reasonable and appropriate safety procedures and Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord and such persons to provide the necessary training for such procedures.
6.5.2 Tenants Keys. For each of the purposes stated above in this Section 6.5, Landlord shall at all times have and retain a key with which to unlock all of the doors in, upon and about the Premises, excluding Tenants vaults, safes and Secure Areas, and Landlord shall have the right to use any and all means that Landlord may deem necessary or proper to open said doors in an emergency, in order to obtain entry to any portion of the Premises.
6.6 Cafeteria and Fitness Center. The Common Areas may contain a fitness center (the Fitness Center) and a cafeteria (the Cafeteria) that will be operated and maintained by Landlord (or an operator selected by Landlord). The Cafeteria and Fitness Center, if any, may not be temporarily available from time to time due to construction activities, repairs, maintenance or alterations, or a change in the managing or operating company hired by Landlord, and Landlord reserves the right to change the use of such facilities if the same is uneconomic or insufficiently used by tenants of the Building or Property in which case such facilities shall be subject to discontinuance and removal by Landlord, as determined by Landlord in its sole discretion. Landlord agrees to make the Fitness Center (and its facilities and equipment), if any, available to Tenants employees on a direct, non-exclusive basis subject to (a) Landlords Rules and Regulations regarding the use thereof; (b) payment of a monthly or other periodic user fee (no such fee being applicable as of the date hereof); and (c) execution of a waiver of liability and indemnity agreement for Landlords benefit in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord prior to such persons use of the Fitness Center. If, at any time, the Fitness Center and/or Cafeteria are located within the Property in an area outside of the Building, Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Tenants use of such facilities shall be subject to discontinuance if the Building and Property are no longer owned by the same entity.
ARTICLE 7 CONDUCT OF BUSINESS BY TENANT

The Premises shall be used and occupied only for general office, general laboratory, and research and development purposes, together with customary uses accessory thereto including ancillary pilot production and ancillary storage, as permitted per Applicable Laws (collectively, the Permitted Uses), but expressly excluding medical, clinical, government and education (as distinguished from training of staff) offices. Tenant shall not use or occupy, or permit the use or occupancy of, the Premises or any part thereof for any use other than the Permitted Uses specifically set
forth above or in any illegal manner, or in any manner that, in Landlords reasonable judgment, would adversely affect or interfere with any services required to be furnished by Landlord to Tenant or to any other tenant or occupant of the Property, or with the proper and economical rendition of any such service, or with the use and enjoyment of any part of the Property by any other tenant or occupant. In no event shall the Permitted Uses include any governmental, medical, clinical or retail uses. Tenant agrees that it will not exceed the maximum floor bearing capacity for the Premises.
7.2 Tenants Personal Property. Tenant shall be responsible for any ad valorem taxes on (a) its personal property (whether owned or leased) and (b) on the value of its leasehold improvements in the Premises (which are in excess of building standard improvements), if and to the extent that the leasehold improvements are assessed in a manner segregating their value from the remainder of the Building by the taxing authorities as reasonably evidenced by Landlord, and such taxes shall be payable by Tenant to Landlord as Additional Rent. Landlord acknowledges that no leasehold improvements in the Premises are currently assessed separately from the remainder of the Building.
7.3 Compliance with Laws.
7.3.1 Tenants Compliance Obligations. From and after the Commencement Date and during the Term or such longer period as Tenant remains in possession of the Premises, Tenant, at Tenants expense, shall comply promptly with the laws, ordinances, rules, regulations and orders of all governmental authorities in effect from time to time during the Term including, without limitation, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and all applicable federal, state and municipal building, zoning, fire, health, safety and environmental laws (the Applicable Laws) that shall impose any duty on Tenant with respect to the Premises or the use, occupancy or operation thereof. Tenant will obtain and maintain in full force and effect any and all licenses and permits necessary for its use of the Premises. Tenant shall make any Alterations in or to the Premises in order to comply with the foregoing, which are necessitated or occasioned, in whole or in part by the use or occupancy or manner of use, occupancy or operation of the Premises by Tenant or any of its officers, employees, agents, contractors, invitees, licensees or subtenants (the Tenant Parties). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be required to make any alterations or additions to the structure, roof, exterior and load bearing walls, foundation, structural floor slabs and other structural elements of the Building or any Building Systems unless the same are (x) required by Tenants particular use of the Premises (as opposed to office use, generally) or (y) result from any Alterations (as defined below) made by Tenant.
7.3.2 Landlords Compliance Obligations. Landlord shall comply with all Applicable Laws in effect from time to time during the Term that shall impose any duty on Landlord with respect to the Common Areas, excluding any matters that are Tenants responsibility under this Lease or the responsibility of other tenants of the Property. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, from and after the Commencement Date, Tenant shall be responsible for legal compliance, including the requirements of the ADA, with respect to (a) any and all requirements on account of Tenants particular use of, or operations in, the Premises (as opposed to office use, generally), and (b) all Alterations designed or constructed by Tenant or its contractors or agents.
7.4 Landlords Rules and Regulations. Tenant shall observe and comply with the rules and regulations attached to this Lease as Exhibit 7.4, and all reasonable modifications thereof and additions thereto from time to time put into effect by Landlord (the Rules and Regulations). Tenant shall not use or permit the use of the Premises in any manner that will create waste or a nuisance, or which shall tend to unreasonably disturb other tenants of the Property. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no rules or regulations, or modifications or additions thereto, established or promulgated by Landlord under or pursuant to this Section 7.4 or any other provisions of this Lease shall be effective unless and until Landlord notifies Tenant thereof. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if there is any conflict between any of the Rules and Regulations or any other rules and regulations promulgated or established by Landlord under or pursuant to this Section 7.4 or any other provisions of this Lease and any of the other terms and provisions of this Lease, the other terms and provisions of this Lease shall govern.
7.5 No Liens. Tenant shall keep the Premises and Property free from any liens or encumbrances arising out of any work performed, material furnished or obligations incurred by or for Tenant or any person or entity claiming through or under Tenant. Any claim to, or lien upon, the Premises or the Property arising from any act or omission of Tenant shall accrue only against the
leasehold estate of Tenant and shall be subject and subordinate to the paramount title and rights of Landlord in and to the Premises and the Property. If any mechanics or other lien shall be filed against the Premises or the Property purporting to be for services, labor or material furnished or to be furnished at the request of Tenant, then Tenant shall at its expense cause such lien to be discharged of record by payment, bond or otherwise, within ten (10) days after Tenant has notice of the filing thereof.
7.6 Hazardous Substances.
7.6.1 Tenants Obligations.
126.96.36.199 Prohibitions.

If requested by Landlord (not more than once per month) Tenant shall deliver updated MSDS sheets to Landlord with an updated inventory of Hazardous Substances (including approximate amounts) used by Tenant or anyone claiming by, through or under Tenant at the Property if Tenant has, since the date of the last Environmental Questionnaire provided to Landlord, used any such new Hazardous Substances pursuant to the terms of this paragraph.

8.8 Signs. Except as expressly set forth in this Section 8.8, Tenant shall not place or erect any signs, monuments or other structures on the exterior of the Building or in Common Areas outside of the Building, nor shall Tenant place any signage on the exterior of the Premises or on the inside of the Premises which are visible from the exterior of the Premises. Tenant shall pay for all costs to change signage as a result of a change in the name of the business occupying the Premises.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant may, at its sole cost and expense, install and maintain signage containing Tenants (or any permitted assignee of Tenants) name and corporate logo in areas to be reasonably agreed upon by the parties in the main lobby of the Building (the Lobby Signage). If Tenant leases less than 100% of the rentable area of the Building, Tenant shall be permitted to install and maintain only one (1) sign as Lobby Signage. The design, proportions and color of the Lobby Signage shall be subject to Landlords prior approval, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Tenants rights to such Lobby Signage shall be exclusive for so long as Tenant leases at least 85% of the rentable floor area of the Building, and if Tenant leases less than 85% of the rentable floor area of the Building, Landlord shall provide Tenant, at Tenants expense, with non-exclusive building-standard lobby and elevator directory signage and suite entry signage.
For so long as (i) Tenant leases at least 85% of the rentable floor area of the Building, and (ii) Tenant has neither assigned this Lease nor sublet more than 50% of the rentable floor area of the Premises except for Permitted Transfers (the Exterior Signage Occupancy Requirements), Tenant shall be permitted, at Tenants sole cost and expense, to erect one (1) sign on the exterior façade of the Building facing Crosby Drive (the Façade Sign) and up to four (4) plaques on the exterior of the Building (Exterior Plaques) at the entrance to the Premises. The Façade Sign shall contain Tenants name and logo (or the name and logo of any permitted assignee of Tenant) and shall be in a location reasonably approved by Landlord, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld. The Exterior Plaques may contain Tenants name and logo or the name and logo of any Permitted Occupant and shall be in a location reasonably approved by Landlord, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld. Tenants right to erect the Façade Sign shall be exclusive so long as Tenant meets the Exterior Signage Occupancy Requirements. At such time as Tenant no longer meets the Exterior Signage Occupancy Requirements, Landlord may permit other Building tenants to install a façade sign on the Building exterior. At such time as Tenant leases less than 100% of the rentable floor area of the Building, Tenant shall be permitted to maintain only one (1) Exterior Plaque on the Building exterior, and Tenants right to maintain Exterior Plaques on the Building exterior shall not be exclusive (i.e., Landlord may permit other building tenants to install Exterior Plaques at the entrance to the Building).
The design, size, proportions and color of all signage described in this Section 8.8 shall be subject to the prior approval of Landlord (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) and shall further be subject to the requirements of the Town of Bedford Zoning By-Law and any other Applicable Laws and to Tenant obtaining all necessary permits and approvals therefor.
Tenant acknowledges and agrees that, except as otherwise provided in this Section 8.8, Tenants right to signage is not on an exclusive basis and Landlord may grant other tenants at the Property the right to maintain signage at the Property.
In the event that at any time during the Term Tenant ceases to meet the applicable occupancy thresholds described above, Tenant shall, upon Landlords written request and at Tenants sole cost and expense, remove all or any portion of the Tenants signage described in this Section 8.8 and designated by Landlord for removal and restore any areas affected by the installation and subsequent removal of Tenants signage. In addition, Tenant shall be required at its sole cost and expense to remove all of Tenants signage described in this Section 8.8 and restore any areas affected by the installation and subsequent removal of Tenants signage upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Term.
The provisions of this paragraph are personal to the originally named Tenant and any permitted Transferees. If the Façade Sign or any Exterior Plaque requires municipal or other governmental approval, and such approval is denied, Landlord shall not be deemed to be in default hereunder and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect. Landlord shall have the right to relocate the Façade Sign and/or any Exterior Plaque on a temporary basis in connection with the maintenance and repair of the Building. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, Landlord agrees that, so long as Tenant leases 85% of the rentable floor area of the Building, Tenant shall have the right to prohibit any sign (other than Tenants) from being placed on the roof of or on the exterior façade of the Building (with the exception of signage identifying the Building address and any other sign required by Applicable Laws).

9.2 Policies. Each such insurance policy shall: (a) be provided in form, substance and amounts (where not above stated) reasonably satisfactory to Landlord and to Landlords Mortgagee; (b) specifically include the liability assumed hereunder by Tenant to the extent applicable for such policy (provided that the amount of such insurance shall not be construed to limit the liability of Tenant hereunder); (c) shall provide that it is primary insurance, and not excess over or contributory with any other valid, existing and applicable insurance in force for or on behalf of Landlord; and (d) provide that the insurer will give Landlord twenty (20) days written notice prior to any cancellation (except in the event of cancellation for non-payment of premium for which ten (10) days prior written notice will be given).

9.3 Increased Insurance Risk. Tenant shall not do or permit anything to be done, or keep or permit anything to be kept in the Premises, which would: (a) be in violation of any governmental law, regulation or requirement, (b) invalidate or be in conflict with the provision of any fire or other insurance policies covering the Property or any property located therein, (c) result in a refusal by fire insurance companies of good standing to insure the Property or any such property in amounts required by a Mortgagee or reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, or (d) cause any increase in the fire insurance rates applicable to the Property or property located therein at the beginning of the Term or at any time thereafter. In the event that any use of the Premises by Tenant increases such cost of insurance, Landlord shall give Tenant written notice of such increase (including reasonable evidence of such increase and the cause thereof) and a reasonable opportunity to change its use to prevent such increase; provided, however, if Tenant fails to do so, Tenant shall pay such increased cost to Landlord in accordance with Section 4.4 hereof. Acceptance of such payment shall not be construed as a consent by Landlord to Tenants such use, or limit Landlords remedies under this Lease.
9.4 Indemnity. (a) Subject to the provisions of Section 9.6.1, Tenant shall defend with counsel approved by Landlord in Landlords reasonable discretion, indemnify and hold harmless Landlord, all employees, officers, directors, partners, members and shareholders of Landlord, Mortgagees of the Property and any other party having an interest therein 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 arising from or out of (a) any injury to or death of any person or damage to or loss of property during the Term, or any period Tenant is in possession of the Premises, in or on the Premises or connected with the use, condition or occupancy of Premises, except to the extent caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or any employee, agent or contractor of Landlord, (b) any breach or violation by Tenant of any of the terms, conditions or provisions of this Lease, (c) any act, omission, fault, misconduct, negligence or violation of applicable laws and regulations by Tenant or any Tenant Parties, or (d) any construction or other work by Tenant on or about the Premises pursuant to Article 8 or otherwise, except to the extent caused by the neligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or any employee, agent or contractor of Landlord.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlords indemnity under this Section 9.4 shall not apply to the extent any such liabilities, losses, damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses), causes of action, suits, claims, demands or judgments shall arise out of Tenants negligence or willful misconduct.
9.5 Tenants Use and Occupancy. Tenants use and occupancy of the Premises and the Property and the use thereof by all Tenant Parties, and all Tenants and said parties furnishings, fixtures, equipment, improvements, materials, supplies, inventory, effects and property of every kind, nature and description which, during the continuance of this Lease or any occupancy of the Premises by Tenant or anyone claiming under Tenant, may be in, on or about the Premises, shall be at Tenants and said parties sole risk and hazard, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease. To the extent permitted pursuant to Applicable Law, Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant or any other party for injury to or death of any person or damage to or destruction of any property in, on or about the Premises, nor for any interruption in Tenants use of the Premises or the conduct of its business therein, nor for any other losses, damages, costs, expenses or liabilities whatsoever, including without limitation where caused by fire, water, explosion, collapse, the leakage or bursting of water, steam, or other pipes, any environmental or other condition in, on, or about the Premises, or any other event, occurrence, condition or cause, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease and except to the extent caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or any Landlord Party.
9.6 Waiver of Claims; Subrogation Rights.
9.6.1 Mutual Waiver. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Lease to the contrary, Landlord and Tenant hereby agree and hereby waive any and all rights of recovery against each other for loss or damage occurring to the Building or the Property or any of Landlords property or Tenants Property contained therein regardless of the cause of such loss or damage to the extent
that the loss or damage is covered by the injured partys insurance or the insurance the injured party is required to carry under this Lease, whichever is greater (without regard to any deductible provision in any policy). This waiver also applies to each partys directors, officers, employees, shareholders, and agents.
9.6.2 Insurance Policy Coverage. Each party will assure that its insurance permits waiver of liability and contains a waiver of subrogation. Each party shall secure an appropriate clause in, or an endorsement to, each insurance policy obtained by or required to be obtained by Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, under this Lease, pursuant to which the insurance company: (a) waives any right of subrogation against Landlord or Tenant as the same may be applicable, or (b) permits Landlord or Tenant, prior to any loss to agree to waive any claim it might have against the other without invalidating the coverage under the insurance policy. If, at any time, the insurance carrier of either party refuses to write (and no other insurance carrier licensed in Massachusetts will write) insurance policies which consent to or permit such release of liability, then such party shall notify the other party and upon the giving of such notice, this Section 9.6.2 shall be void and of no effect.
9.7 Landlords Insurance. At all times during the Term, Landlord shall maintain so-called All-Risk property insurance on the Building at replacement cost. In addition, at all times during the Term, Landlord shall maintain Commercial General Liability insurance applicable to the Property, the Building and the Common Areas, providing, on an occurrence basis, a minimum combined single limit of at least $5,000,000.00.
ARTICLE 10 CASUALTY
10.1 Damage or Destruction.
10.1.1 Landlords Repair Obligation. Tenant shall give prompt notice to Landlord of any damage by fire or other casualty (a Casualty) to the Building or any portion thereof. During the thirty (30)-day period following the occurrence of a Casualty (the Notice Period), Landlord will notify Tenant of Landlords reasonable, good faith estimate (the Landlords Estimate) of the period of time required to complete the restoration work with respect to such Casualty. In the event that the Building or any part thereof or material access thereto shall be damaged or destroyed by a Casualty, and if in the reasonable, good faith judgment of Landlord the restoration work with respect to such Casualty can be completed with available insurance proceeds within two hundred forty (240) days of adjustment of the insurance claim, then Landlord shall so notify Tenant and shall complete the restoration work as provided in Section 10.4 hereof with reasonable diligence, subject to the limitations, if any, of Applicable Laws. If, in the reasonable judgment of Landlord, the restoration work with respect to a Casualty cannot be completed with available insurance proceeds within two hundred forty (240) days after adjustment of the insurance claim, then either party shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving written notice of such termination to the other party within the thirty (30) days after Landlord has provided Landlords Estimate to Tenant. If the restoration period estimated by Landlord is more than two hundred forty (240) days and neither party terminates this Lease on account thereof in accordance with the foregoing provisions of this Section 10.1.1, Landlord shall complete such restoration work as provided in Section 10.4 hereof with reasonable diligence, subject to the limitations, if any, of Applicable Laws, within the period so estimated by Landlord.
10.1.2 Failure to Complete Repairs: Rights of Termination. If Landlord is obligated, or elects, to perform the restoration work and fails to substantially complete the restoration work within the longer of the period of time required or permitted by this Section 10.1 or the time set forth in Landlords Estimate plus a contingency period equal to 10% of the time set forth in Landlords Estimate (as the same may be reasonably extended due to any delay caused by Force Majeure) (the Reconstruction Period) then, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by delivery of written notice to Landlord not later than thirty (30) days following the end of the Reconstruction Period.
10.2 Abatement of Rent. Base Rent and Additional Rent shall not be abated or suspended if, following any Casualty, Tenant shall continue to have reasonably convenient access to the entire Premises and no portion of the Premises is rendered unfit for use and occupancy. If Tenant shall not have reasonably convenient access to the Premises or any portion thereof or any portion of the Premises shall be otherwise rendered unfit for use and occupancy by Tenant for the purposes set forth in
Section 7.1 by reason of a Casualty, then Rent shall be equitably suspended or abated relative to the portion of the Premises that cannot be used or accessed by Tenant for its business operations, effective as of the date of the Casualty until Landlord has (a) substantially completed the restoration work and (b) has delivered notice thereof to Tenant.
10.3 Events of Termination. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Article 10, if, prior to or during the Term the Property shall be so damaged by Casualty that, in Landlords reasonable estimate, the cost to repair the damage will be more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the replacement value of the Building or all of the buildings located at the Property immediately prior to the occurrence of the Casualty (whether or not the Premises shall have been damaged or rendered untenantable), then, in any of such events, Landlord, may give to Tenant, within sixty (60) days after such Casualty, a sixty (60) days notice of the termination of this Lease and, in the event such notice is given, this Lease and the Term shall terminate upon the expiration of such sixty (60) days with the same effect as if such date were the Expiration Date. If more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the gross rentable area of the Premises shall be wholly or substantially damaged or destroyed by a Casualty at any time during the last six (6) months of the Term, either Landlord or Tenant may terminate this Lease by delivery of written notice of such termination to the other party within thirty (30) days after the occurrence of such casualty.
10.4 Scope of Landlords Repairs. In the event Landlord elects or shall be obligated to repair or restore any damage or destruction to the Premises pursuant to this Article 10, Landlord shall not be obligated to restore or replace Tenants Property or Tenants Alterations. No damages, compensation or claim shall be payable by Landlord to Tenant, or any other person, by reason of inconvenience, loss of business or annoyance arising from any damage or destruction, or any repair thereof, as is referred to in this Article 10.
10.5 Restoration Work. As used in this Article 10, the phrase restoration work with respect to any Casualty shall mean the work required to repair any damage to the Building caused by such Casualty and to restore the Building substantially to the condition the Building was in immediately prior to such Casualty.
ARTICLE 11 CONDEMNATION
11.1 Entire Condemnation. In the event that the whole of the Premises or all of the access thereto shall be taken under the power of eminent domain or by any proceeding for taking for public or quasi-public use (a Condemnation), this Lease and the term and estate hereby granted shall automatically terminate as of the earlier of the date of the vesting of title or the date of dispossession of Tenant as a result of such taking.
11.2 Partial Condemnation.
11.2.1 Effect of Partial Condemnation. In the event that only a part of the Premises shall be taken by Condemnation and the remaining Premises are suitable for the Permitted Uses without material interference with Tenants business operations and Tenant shall have reasonable, convenient access to and from the Premises, the Term shall expire as to that portion of the Premises condemned effective as of the date of the vesting of title in the condemning authority, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as to the part of the Premises not so taken. In the event of a partial Condemnation of the Premises or the Common Areas which results in (i) a lack of reasonable, convenient access to and from the Premises and Landlord is unable to promptly make reasonable alternative arrangement to replace the same, (ii) insufficient space within the Premises for Tenant to carry on its business without material interference with its business, or (iii) either thirty-three percent (33%) of the parking spaces available for Tenants use in accordance Section 1.3 or all loading dock facilities serving the Building shall be taken, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease.
11.2.2 Landlords Option to Terminate. In the event that a part of the Property shall be subject to Condemnation (whether or not the Premises are affected), Landlord may, at its option, terminate this Lease as of the date of such vesting of title, by notifying Tenant in writing of such termination within ninety (90) days following the date on which Landlord shall have received notice of the vesting of title in the condemning authority if in Landlords reasonable opinion: (a) a substantial alteration or reconstruction of the Property (or any portion thereof) shall be necessary or appropriate, or (b) the portion of the Property so condemned has the effect of rendering the remainder of the Property uneconomic to maintain.
11.2.3 Landlords Repair Obligations. In the event that this Lease is not terminated in accordance with Subsection 11.2.2 hereof, Landlord shall, upon receipt of the award in condemnation, make all necessary repairs or alterations to the Building so as to constitute the remaining Premises a complete architectural unit and make all necessary repairs or alterations to the Common Areas serving the Building to the extent feasible and permitted by Applicable Laws, but Landlord shall not be required to spend for such work an amount in excess of the amount received by Landlord as damages for the part of the Premises so taken. Amount received by Landlord shall mean that part of the award in condemnation which is free and clear to Landlord of any collection by Mortgagees and after payment of all costs involved in collection, including but not limited to attorneys fees. Tenant, at its own cost and expense, shall restore the Premises to the condition it is required to be left in at the end of the Term pursuant to the terms of this Lease. In the event of a partial taking, all provisions of this Lease shall remain in full force and effect, except as otherwise provided in Section 11.5.
11.3 Temporary Taking. If there is a taking of the Premises for temporary use arising out of a temporary emergency or other temporary situation, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, and Tenant shall continue to comply with Tenants obligations under this Lease, except to the extent compliance shall be rendered impossible or impracticable by reason of the taking, and Tenant shall be entitled to the award for its leasehold interest.
11.4 Condemnation Awards. Except as provided in the preceding Section 11.3, Landlord shall be entitled to the entire award in any condemnation proceeding or other proceeding for taking for public or quasi-public use, including, without limitation, any award made for the value of the leasehold estate created by this Lease. No award for any partial or entire taking shall be apportioned, and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any award that may be made in such condemnation or other taking, together with any and all rights of Tenant now or hereafter arising in or to same or any part thereof; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be deemed to give Landlord any interest in or to require Tenant to assign to Landlord any award made to Tenant specifically for its relocation expenses or the taking of Tenants Property provided that such award does not diminish or reduce the amount of the award payable to Landlord.
11.5 Proration. In the event of a Condemnation that does not result in a termination of this Lease as provided herein, the Base Rent and Tenants Share shall be adjusted in proportion to that portion of the Premises or access thereto affected by such Condemnation.
ARTICLE 12 ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
12.1 Assignment and Subletting. Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, assign, mortgage, encumber or otherwise transfer this Lease or any interest herein directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, or sublet the Premises or any part thereof, or permit the use or occupancy of the Premises by any party other than Tenant (any such action, a Transfer). If at any time or from time to time during the Term, when no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Tenant desires to effect a Transfer, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord written notice (Transfer Notice) setting forth the terms of the proposed Transfer and the identity of the proposed assignee or sublessee (each, a Transferee). Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its consent to a Transfer, provided that (a) Tenant shall deliver to Landlord prior written notice of such proposed Transfer together with such related information as Landlord shall reasonably request; (b) no Event of Default under this Lease shall have occurred and be continuing; (c) the proposed Transferee, in the case of an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of 75% or more of the Premises in the aggregate, shall have a net worth equal to or greater than $7,500,000.00 as demonstrated by audited financial statements or equivalent financial information and shall otherwise have a financial condition reasonably satisfactory to Landlord and sufficient to meet its obligations under any sublease of less than 75% of the Premises; (d) Tenant shall remain fully liable under this Lease and, following an assignment, the Transferee shall be jointly and severally liable with Tenant for ail such obligations arising after the effective date of such assignment; (e) due to the identity or business of a proposed assignee or subtenant, such approval would cause Landlord to be in violation of any covenant or restriction contained in another lease or other agreement affecting space elsewhere in the Property; and (f) in the event of an assignment, such Transferee shall agree directly with Landlord to be bound by all of the obligations of Tenant hereunder arising after the effective date of such assignment pursuant to an
assumption agreement reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, including, without limitation, the obligation to pay all Rent and other charges due and owing under this Lease after the effective date of such assignment Tenant shall deliver to Landlord with the Transfer Notice an acceptable assumption agreement for Tenants obligations under this Lease (in the case where the Transfer is a proposed assignment of this Lease) together with all relevant information reasonably requested by Landlord concerning the proposed Transferee to assist Landlord in making an informed judgment regarding the Transferees proposed use of the Premises (which use must be permitted by Applicable Laws), and the financial responsibility, creditworthiness, reputation, and business experience of the Transferee. Subject to Section 12.6, below, the provisions of this Section 12.1 shall apply to a Transfer (by one or more Transfers) of a controlling portion of or interest in the stock or partnership or membership interests or other evidences of equity interests of Tenant as if such Transfer were an assignment of this Lease; provided that if equity interests in Tenant at any time are or become traded on a public stock exchange, the transfer of equity interests in Tenant on a public stock exchange shall not be deemed an assignment within the meaning of this Section 12.1.
12.2 Landlords Options. Landlord shall have the option, exercisable by written notice delivered to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of a Transfer Notice accompanied by the other information described in Section 12.1, to: (a) permit Tenant to Transfer the Premises; or (b) subject to Section 12.1, disapprove the Tenants Transfer of the Premises and to continue this Lease in full force and effect as to the entire Premises; or (c) if the proposed Transfer is a sublease of less than 25,000 rentable square feet of the Premises (other than a Permitted Transfer or a Transfer to a Permitted Occupant), terminate this Lease as to the portion of the Premises affected by the Transfer as of the date set forth in Landlords notice of exercise of such option, which date shall not be less than thirty (30) days nor more than ninety (90) days following the giving of such notice; or (d) if the proposed Transfer is an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of 25,000 rentable square feet or more of the Premises (in either case, other than a Permitted Transfer or a Transfer to a Permitted Occupant), terminate this Lease (a Recapture) as of the date set forth in Landlords notice of exercise of such option, which date shall not be less than sixty (60) days nor more than ninety (90) days following the giving of such notice; provided, however, that Tenant may, prior to the delivery of a Transfer Notice, request in writing designating the affected area of the Premises, identifying the prospective subtenant, and providing such other information as Landlord may reasonably request, whether Landlord will exercise a Recapture of the Premises (a Recapture Notice) and Landlord shall notify Tenant whether it shall Recapture the Premises within ten (10) business days of receipt of the Recapture Notice (or if later, the receipt of such information). If Landlord approves of the proposed Transfer pursuant to Section 12.1 above, Tenant may enter into the proposed Transfer with such proposed Transferee subject to the following conditions: (i) the Transfer shall be on the same terms set forth in the Transfer Notice; and (ii) no Transfer shall be valid and no Transferee shall take possession of the Premises until an executed counterpart of the assignment, sublease or other instrument effecting the Transfer (in the form approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) has been delivered to Landlord pursuant to which the Transferee shall expressly assume all of Tenants obligations under this Lease (provided that, for a subtenant, the subtenants obligations shall be governed by the terms of the applicable sublease). If Landlord exercises its option to terminate this Lease (or in the case of a partial sublet to release Tenant with respect to the applicable portion of the Premises), Tenant shall surrender possession of the Premises or of such portion of the Premises, as the case may be, on the date set forth in Landlords notice, and thereafter neither Landlord nor Tenant shall have any further liability with respect thereto. If this Lease shall be terminated as to a portion of the Premises only, (i) Rent, Tenants Share and Tenants parking allocation shall be readjusted proportionately according to the ratio that the number of square feet and the portion of the space surrendered compares to the floor area of Tenants Premises during the Term of the proposed sublet, and (ii) Landlord shall be responsible, at Landlords cost, for separately demising the terminated portion of the Premises from the remaining portion of the Premises so as to create a multi-tenant building (Tenant acknowledging that Landlord shall have the right to recapture additional portions of the Premises that, in Landlords sole judgment, are necessary or desirable in order to provide a new tenant of the terminated portion of the Premises with loading dock access, front door access and elevator access, it being reasonable to require bifurcation of the Premises in a way that will meet code and render the recaptured space marketable).
12.3 Additional Conditions. Tenant shall not knowingly offer to make, or enter into negotiations with respect to, any Transfer to: (a) any tenant of the Property or any entity owned by, or under the common control of, whether directly or indirectly, a tenant in the Property unless there is no competing space then available for leases therein; or (b) any bona fide prospective tenant with whom Landlord is then negotiating with respect to other space in the Property; or (c) any party which would be of such type, character, or condition as to be inappropriate as a tenant for the Property.
12.4 No Release. Landlords consent to a Transfer or any Transfer permitted without Landlords consent shall not release Tenant of Tenants obligations under this Lease and this Lease and all of the obligations of Tenant under this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as the obligations of a principal (and not as the obligations of a guarantor or surety). From and after any assignment of this Lease, the obligations of the Transferee and of the original Tenant named in this Lease which respect to obligations under this Lease that arise or accrue after the effective date of such assignment shall be joint and several. No acceptance of Rent by Landlord from or recognition in any way of the occupancy of the Premises by a Transferee shall be deemed a consent to such Transfer, or a release of Tenant from direct and primary liability for the further performance of Tenants covenants hereunder. The consent by Landlord to a particular Transfer shall not relieve Tenant from the requirement of obtaining the consent of Landlord to any further Transfer. Each violation of any of the covenants, agreements, terms or conditions of this Lease, whether by act or omission, by any of Tenants permitted Transferees, shall constitute a violation thereof by Tenant. In the event of default by any Transferee of Tenant or any successor of Tenant in the performance of any of the terms hereof, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant without the necessity of exhausting remedies against such Transferee or successor.
12.5 Transfer Profit. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, an amount (the Transfer Profit) equal to any rent and other economic consideration received by Tenant as a result of any Transfer (other than Permitted Transfers) which exceeds, in the aggregate: (a) the total of the remaining rent which Tenant is obligated to pay Landlord under this Lease plus (b) any reasonable tenant fit-up costs, brokerage commissions and attorneys fees actually paid by Tenant in connection with such Transfer amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the Transfer (specifically excluding moving or relocation costs paid to the Transferee and any rent abatement provided to the Transferee). Tenant shall pay such Transfer Profit to Landlord on a monthly basis within ten (10) days after receipt thereof, without affecting or reducing any other obligations of Tenant hereunder. Each such payment shall be sent with a detailed statement. Landlord shall have the right to audit Tenants books and records to verify the accuracy of the detailed statement.
12.6 Permitted Transfers. Notwithstanding the above, provided Tenant is not in default of this Lease beyond applicable notice and cure periods, then Tenant shall have the right to assign this Lease or sublet the Premises without Landlords consent (a Permitted Transfer), but with no less than ten (10) days prior notice to Landlord (unless Tenants disclosure of such Transfer is prohibited under a confidentiality agreement to which Tenant is a party, in which event notice shall be provided to Landlord within ten (10) days following such Transfer), to (i) any person that as of the date of determination and at all times thereafter directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Tenant, or (ii) any entity into or with which Tenant is merged or consolidated, or to which all or substantially all of Tenants assets are transferred (any of the foregoing, an Affiliated Company); provided, however, that in any such event: (w) use of the Premises shall be for the Permitted Use; (x) the assignee shall have a net worth that is equal to or in excess of the net worth of the original Tenant as of the date of execution of this Lease, and Landlord has been provided with financial statements or evidence otherwise reasonably satisfactory to Landlord of the same; (y) any such assignment shall be for an independent business purpose and not a means to circumvent the provisions of this Article 12, and (z) the purpose or result of such Transfer shall not be to liquidate or substantially reduce the net worth of Tenant or such assignee. For the purposes of this Section 12.6, the term control shall mean the direct or indirect ownership of 50% or more of an entity and the ability to control the day-to-day operations of such entity whether through the board of directors or otherwise.
12.7 Permitted Occupants. Notwithstanding the above, Tenant shall have the right, without the consent of Landlord (but upon reasonable prior to notice to Landlord), to permit the use or occupancy of a portion of the Premises that is not separately demised and consists of not more than 5,000 rentable square feet of the Premises in the aggregate by license for periods of less than one (1) year at a time, by persons who have an ongoing contractual or other business relationship with Tenant in connection with Tenants activities at the Premises such that such occupants have a reasonable need to work in proximity with Tenant (each, a Permitted Occupant and, collectively, the Permitted Occupants); provided that (a) the Permitted Occupants shall use the Premises in conformity with all applicable provisions of this Lease; (b) such occupancy shall terminate automatically upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease; (c) Tenant shall remain fully liable for the acts or omissions of the Permitted Occupants in the Premises and at the Property; (d) the occupancy arrangement is for a legitimate business objective of
Tenant and is not primarily for the purpose of circumventing the restrictions on assignment and subletting contained herein; (e) all notices required of Landlord under this Lease shall be forwarded only to Tenant in accordance with the terms of this Lease and in no event shall Landlord be required to send any notices to any Permitted Occupants; (f) in no event shall any use or occupancy of any portion of the Premises by any Permitted Occupants release or relieve Tenant from any of its obligations under this Lease; (g) the Permitted Occupants and their employees, contractors and invitees visiting or occupying space in the Premises shall be deemed to be Tenant Parties for purposes of Tenants indemnification obligations in Section 9.4; and (h) in no event shall the occupancy of any portion of the Premises by Permitted Occupants be deemed to create a landlord/tenant relationship between Landlord and such Permitted Occupants or an interest in real property, and, in all instances, Tenant shall be considered the sole tenant under this Lease notwithstanding the occupancy of any portion of the Premises by the Permitted Occupants.

Failure by Tenant to perform any non-monetary obligation, agreement or covenant under this Lease other than those matters specified in Subsection 13.1.2, and such failure continues for thirty (30) days after written notice by Landlord to Tenant of such failure; provided, however, that if the nature of Tenants obligation is such that more than thirty (30) days are required for performance, then Tenant shall not be in default if Tenant commences performance within such thirty (30)-day period and thereafter diligently and continuously prosecutes the same to completion within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of Landlords written notice with respect to such failure.
13.1.4 Assignment; Receivership; Attachment.

13.1.6 Abandonment. Abandonment of the Premises by Tenant for a continuous period in excess of thirty (30) days.
13.2 Remedies. If an Event of Default occurs and Landlord has not accepted a cure of such Event of Default in writing, Landlord shall have the following rights and remedies, in addition to any and all other rights or remedies available to Landlord in law or equity:
13.2.1 Notice to Quit. Landlord shall have the right to deliver written notice to Tenant to quit possession and occupancy of the Premises and to declare this Lease terminated. Upon Landlords termination of this Lease, Tenant shall quit and peaceably surrender the Premises, and all portions thereof, to Landlord, and Landlord shall have the right to receive all rental and other income of and from the same. At Landlords election, any written notice of default may also be designated a notice to quit (provided that nothing in this sentence shall be deemed to deny Tenant the right to applicable cure periods set forth in Section 13.1, above).
13.2.2 Right of Re-Entry. Landlord shall have the right, with or without terminating this Lease, to re-enter the Premises and take possession thereof by summary proceeding, eviction, ejectment or otherwise and may dispossess all other persons and property from the Premises. Tenants property may be removed and stored in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of and for the account of Tenant. No re-entry or taking possession of the Premises by Landlord pursuant to this Subsection 13.2.2 shall be construed as an election to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention is given to Tenant or unless the termination thereof is decreed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Tenant thereby waives all statutory rights, including without limitation the right to a notice to quit, notice before exercise of any prejudgment remedy, and any rights of redemption, all to the extent such rights may be lawfully waived.
13.2.3 Recovery of Rent and Damages. Landlord shall have the right to recover from Tenant all loss of Rent and other payments that Landlord may incur by reason of termination of the Lease, including, without limitation: (a) all Rent and other sums due and payable by Tenant as of the date of termination; (b) all Rent that would otherwise be payable for the remainder of the Term in accordance with the terms of this Lease, as and when due, and Tenant shall indemnify Landlord for the same; (c) all of Landlords then unamortized costs of special inducements provided to Tenant (including without limitation any rent concessions, tenant construction allowances, rent waivers, above building standard leasehold improvements, and the like, if any); (d) the costs of collecting amounts due from Tenant under this Lease and the costs of recovering possession of the Premises (including attorneys fees and litigation costs); (e) the costs of curing Tenants defaults existing at or prior to the date of termination; (f) all Reletting Expenses (as defined below); and (g) all Landlords other reasonable expenditures arising from the termination. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all such items, and the same shall be due and payable immediately from time to time upon notice from Landlord that an expense has been incurred, without regard to whether the expense was incurred before or after the termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, except as set forth in Section 2.2 of this Lease, Tenant shall not be liable for any of Landlords indirect or consequential damages arising from an Event of Default by Tenant.
13.2.4 Acceleration of Future Rentals. Following termination of this Lease, Landlord, at its written election, shall be entitled to receive as liquidated damages for all Rent that would otherwise be due and payable pursuant to clause (b) of Subsection 13.2.3, above, an amount equal to: (x) a lump sum payment representing the then present value of the amount of Rent that would have been paid in accordance with this Lease for the remainder of the Term minus the then present value of the aggregate fair market rent and additional charges payable for the Premises for the remainder of the Term (if less than the Rent payable hereunder) estimated by Landlord as of the date of termination, and taking into account Landlords reasonable projections of vacancy and time required to re-lease the Premises; or (y) a lump sum payment equal to one years Base Rent at the rate applicable under the Lease at the time of such election. Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord, on demand, such amount as final damages for Tenants default with respect to the Rents payable for the remainder of the Term as described above. In the computation of present value, a discount at the then market discount rate as reasonably determined by Landlord shall be employed.
13.2.5 Rents Due After Re-Entry by Landlord. If Landlord re-enters or otherwise takes possession of the Premises without terminating this Lease (but terminating only Tenants right of
possession in the Premises), then this Lease and Tenants liabilities and obligations thereunder shall survive such action. In the event of any such termination of Tenants right of possession, whether or not the Premises, or any portion thereof, shall have been relet, Tenant shall pay Landlord a sum equal to the Rent and any other charges required to be paid by Tenant up to the time of such termination of such right of possession and thereafter Tenant, until the end of the Term, shall be liable to Landlord for and shall pay to Landlord: (a) the equivalent of the amount of the Rent payable under this Lease, less (b) the net proceeds of any reletting effected pursuant to the provisions hereof after deducting all of Landlords Reletting Expenses. Tenant shall pay such amounts in accordance with the terms of this Subsection 13.2.5 as set forth in a written statement thereof from Landlord to Tenant (the Deficiency) to Landlord in monthly installments on the days on which the Base Rent is payable under this Lease, and Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant each monthly installment of the Deficiency as the same shall arise. Tenant shall also pay to Landlord upon demand the costs incurred by Landlord in curing Tenants defaults existing at or prior to the date of such termination, the cost of recovering possession of the Premises and the Reletting Expenses. Tenant agrees that Landlord may file suit to recover any sums that become due under the terms of this Section from time to time, and all reasonable costs and expenses of Landlord, including attorneys fees and costs incurred in connection with such suits shall be payable by Tenant on demand.
13.2.6 Certain Terms Defined. For purposes of this Subsection 13.2.6, Reletting Alterations shall mean all repairs, changes, improvements, alterations or additions made by Landlord in or to the Premises to the extent deemed reasonably necessary by Landlord to prepare the Premises for the re-leasing following an Event of Default; and Reletting Expenses shall mean the reasonable expenses paid or incurred by Landlord in connection with any releasing of the Premises following an Event of Default, including, without limitation, marketing expenses, brokerage commissions, attorneys fees, the costs of Reletting Alterations, tenant allowances and other economic concessions provided to the new tenant.
13.3 Landlords Right to Cure Defaults. If Tenant shall default in the observance or performance of any condition or covenant on Tenants part to be observed or performed under or by virtue of any of the provisions of this Lease, and such default continues beyond any applicable notice and cure period or Landlord reasonably determines that an emergency exists, Landlord, without being under any obligation to do so and without thereby waiving such default, may, after prior notice (except in the event of an emergency) remedy such default for the account and at the expense of Tenant. If Landlord makes any expenditures or incurs any obligations for the payment of money in connection therewith, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys fees in instituting, prosecuting or defending any action or proceeding, such sums paid or obligation incurred and costs, shall be paid upon demand to Landlord by Tenant as Additional Rent pursuant to Section 4.4 hereof and if not so paid with interest from its due date until paid at the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the maximum legal rate that Landlord may charge Tenant.
13.4 Disposition of Tenants Property. In addition to Landlords rights under Section 8.4 hereof, Landlord shall have the right to handle, remove, discard or store in a commercial warehouse or otherwise, at Tenants sole risk and expense, any of Tenants Property that is not removed by Tenant at the end of the Term. Landlord shall in no event be responsible for the value, preservation or safekeeping thereof. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, upon demand, any and all expenses incurred in such removal and all storage charges for such property so long as the same shall be in Landlords possession or under Landlords control.
13.5 Reletting. In connection with any reletting of the Premises following an Event of Default, Landlord shall be entitled to grant such rental and economic concessions and other incentives as may be customary for similar space in the Route 128 North submarket. Subject to applicable law, Landlord shall not be required to accept any tenant offered by Tenant or observe any instruction given by Tenant about such reletting. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, after any termination of this Lease on account of an Event of Default, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to relet the Premises on such terms as Landlord may determine, for any term(s), and may grant market concessions or free rent to the extent that Landlord considers reasonably advisable and necessary to relet the same, and may make such reasonable alterations, repairs and decorations in the Premises as Landlord in its reasonable judgment considers advisable or necessary for the purpose of reletting the Premises. The making of such alterations, repairs and decorations shall not operate or be construed to release Tenant from liability hereunder as aforesaid. In no event shall Landlord be required to (i) solicit or entertain
negotiations with any other prospective tenant for the Premises until Landlord obtains full and complete possession of the Premises, (ii) relet the Premises before leasing other vacant space in the Building or to show the Premises on a priority basis, or (iii) lease the Premises for a rental less than the current fair market rent then prevailing for similar office space in comparable buildings.
13.6 No Accord and Satisfaction. Landlord may collect and receive any rent due from Tenant, and the payment thereof shall not constitute a waiver of or affect any notice or demand given, suit instituted or judgment obtained by Landlord, or be held to waive, affect, change, modify or alter the rights or remedies that Landlord has against Tenant in equity, at law, or by virtue of this Lease. No receipt or acceptance by Landlord from Tenant of less than the monthly rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than a partial payment on account for any due and unpaid stipulated rent; no endorsement or statement on any check or any letter or other writing accompanying any check or payment of rent to Landlord shall be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord may accept and negotiate such check or payment without prejudice to Landlords rights to (a) recover the remaining balance of such unpaid rent, or (b) pursue any other remedy provided in this Lease.
13.7 Claims in Bankruptcy. Nothing herein shall limit or prejudice the right of Landlord to prove and obtain in proceeding for bankruptcy, insolvency, arrangement or reorganization by reason of the termination of this Lease, an amount equal to the maximum allowed by any statute or rule of law in effect at the time when, and governing the proceedings in which, the damages are to be proved, whether or not the amount is greater, equal to or less than the amount of the loss or damage that Landlord has suffered. Without limiting any of the provisions of this Article 13. if pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code, as the same may be amended, Tenant is permitted to assign this Lease in disregard of the restrictions contained in Article 12. Tenant agrees that adequate assurance of future performance by the assignee permitted under the Bankruptcy Code shall mean the deposit of cash security with Landlord in any amount equal to all Rent payable under this Lease for the calendar year preceding the year in which such assignment is intended to become effective, which deposit shall be held by Landlord, without interest, for the balance of the term as security for the full and faithful performance of all of the obligations under this Lease on the part of Tenant yet to be performed. If Tenant receives or is to receive any valuable consideration for such an assignment of this Lease, such consideration, after deducting therefrom (a) the brokerage commissions, if any, and other expenses reasonably designated by the assignee as paid for the purchase of Tenants property in the Premises, shall be and become the sole exclusive property of Landlord and shall be paid over to Landlord directly by such assignee. In addition, adequate assurance shall mean that any such assignee of this Lease shall have a net worth indicating said assignees reasonable ability to pay the Rent, and abide by the terms of this Lease for the remaining portion thereof applying commercially reasonable standards.
13.8 Arbitration. Any dispute arising out of or relating to Article 5 of this Lease (with respect to the issues expressly stated therein) shall be submitted to and determined in binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration shall be conducted before and by a single arbitrator selected by the parties. If the parties have not selected an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of written demand for arbitration, the arbitrator shall be selected by the Boston office of the American Arbitration Association pursuant to the then current rules of that Association on application by either party. The arbitrator shall have authority to fashion such just, equitable and legal relief as he, in his sole discretion, may determine. The parties agree that the arbitration hearing shall be held within thirty (30) business days following notification to the parties of the appointment of such arbitrator, and that the arbitration proceedings shall be concluded within thirty (30) business days following the first scheduled arbitration hearing. Each party shall bear all its own expenses of arbitration and shall bear equally the costs and expenses of the arbitrator. All arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in the City of Boston, Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Landlord and Tenant further agree that they will faithfully observe this agreement and rules, and that they will abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator and that a judgment of the court having jurisdiction may be entered upon the award. The duty to arbitrate shall survive the cancellation or termination of this Lease.
13.9 Waiver of Trial By Jury. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, LANDLORD AND TENANT HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, BROUGHT BY EITHER AGAINST THE OTHER ON ANY MATTER WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS LEASE, THE RELATIONSHIP OF LANDLORD AND TENANT, OR TENANTS USE OR OCCUPANCY OF THE PREMISES, OR ANY SUMMARY PROCESS, EVICTION OR OTHER STATUTORY REMEDY WITH RESPECT THERETO. EACH PARTY HAS BEEN REPRESENTED BY, AND HAS RECEIVED THE ADVICE OF, LEGAL COUNSEL WITH RESPECT TO THIS WAIVER.

In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall promptly execute, acknowledge and deliver any commercially reasonable instrument that Landlord or the holder of any Mortgage or its assigns or successors in interest (each such holder, a Mortgagee) may reasonably request to evidence such subordination, the parties agreeing that the form attached hereto as Exhibit 14.1 is commercially reasonable.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord agrees that it shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain from its existing Mortgagee for the benefit of Tenant a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement (an SNDA) substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit 14.1. Landlords failure to obtain any SNDA under this paragraph shall not result in a default under this Lease.
14.2 Attornment by Tenant. In the event that any such first Mortgage is foreclosed or a conveyance in lieu of foreclosure is made for any reason, Tenant shall, at the option of the Mortgagee or the grantee or purchaser in foreclosure, notwithstanding any subordination of any such lien to this Lease, attorn to and become the Tenant of the successor in interest to Landlord. Tenant covenants and agrees to execute and deliver, within ten (10) business days following delivery of request by Landlord, Mortgagee, or by Landlords successor in interest and in the form reasonably requested by Landlord, Mortgagee, or by Landlords successor in interest, any additional documents evidencing the priority or subordination of this Lease with respect to the lien of any such first Mortgage, which additional documents shall be satisfactory to Tenant, Landlord, Mortgagee, and Landlords successors in interest.
14.3 Limitation of Mortgagees Liability. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease to the contrary, no holder of any such Mortgage shall be obligated to perform or liable in damages for failure to perform any of Landlords obligations under this Lease unless and until such holder shall foreclose such mortgage or otherwise acquire title to or succeed to the interest of Landlord in the Building, and then shall only be liable for Landlords obligations arising or accruing after such foreclosure, succession or acquisition of title. No such holder shall ever be obligated to perform or be liable in damages for any of Landlords obligations to the extent arising or accruing before such foreclosure or acquisition of title. Such holders obligations and liabilities shall in any event be subject to, and holder shall have the benefit of, Section 16.15 hereof. Tenant shall never pay the Base Rent, Additional Rent or any other charge more than thirty (30) days prior to the due date thereof, and any payments made by Tenant in violation of this provision shall be a nullity as to such holder, and Tenant shall remain liable to such holder therefor. ant agrees on request of Landlord to execute and deliver from time to time any reasonable agreement which may be necessary to implement the provisions of this Section 14.3.
14.4 Estoppel Certificates. Tenant shall at any time, and from time to time, upon not less than ten (10) business days prior written notice from Landlord execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord, to any prospective purchaser, or Mortgagee, a written estoppel certificate of Tenant in the form attached as Exhibit 14.4 or any other commercially reasonable form. It is intended that any such certificate of Tenant delivered pursuant to this Section 14.4 may be relied upon by Landlord and any prospective purchaser or the Mortgagee of any part of the Property.

16.5 Modifications.

16.6 Severability. If any provision of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby, and each provision of this Lease shall be valid and enforceable to the full extent permitted by law.
16.7 Entire Agreement. Landlords employees, representatives and agents have no authority to make or agree to make a lease or any other agreement or undertaking in connection herewith. 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, and this document shall be effective and binding only upon the execution and delivery hereof by both Landlord and Tenant. This Lease, including the Exhibits hereto, which are made part of this Lease, contain the entire agreement of the parties and all prior negotiations and agreements are merged herein.

16.8 No Merger. There shall be no merger of this Lease or of the leasehold estate hereby created with the fee estate in the Premises or any part thereof by reason of the fact that the same person may acquire or hold, directly or indirectly, this Lease or the leasehold estate hereby created or any interest in this Lease or in such leasehold estate as well as the fee estate in the leasehold Premises or any interest in such fee estate.
16.9 Easements. Landlord reserves the right, from time to time, to grant easements and rights, make dedications, agree to restrictions and record maps affecting the Property as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable, so long as such easements, rights, dedications, restrictions, and maps do not unreasonably interfere with the access to or use of the Premises by Tenant; and this Lease shall be subordinate to such instruments.

All agreements, covenants and indemnifications contained herein or made in writing pursuant to the terms of this Lease by or on behalf of Tenant shall be deemed material and shall survive expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.
16.11 Remedies Cumulative; No Waiver. No remedy or election hereunder shall be deemed exclusive, but shall wherever possible, be cumulative with all other remedies at law or in equity. No
waiver of any provision hereof shall be deemed a waiver of any other provision hereof or of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.

No reference to any specific right or remedy shall preclude the exercise of any other right or remedy permitted hereunder or that may be available at law or in equity. No failure by Landlord or Tenant to insist upon the strict performance of any agreement, term, covenant or condition hereof, or to exercise any right or remedy consequent upon a breach thereof, and no acceptance of full or partial rent by Landlord during the continuance of any such breach, shall constitute a waiver of any such breach, agreement, term, covenant or condition.
16.12 Tenants Financial Statements. Unless Tenant is a publicly traded company, Tenant shall, upon Landlords request, furnish Landlord annually, within one hundred eighty (180) days after the end of each fiscal year of Tenant, copies of the balance sheets of Tenant, as at the close of such fiscal year, and statements of income and retained earnings of Tenant for such year, prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or another accounting method reasonably approved by Landlord, and, if such is Tenants normal practice, audited by Tenants independent certified public accountants and, if not, certified as true and correct by Tenants chief financial officer. Landlord shall keep Tenants financial statements provided by Tenant pursuant to this Section 16.12 confidential other than to Landlords officers, directors, employees, agents, accountants, attorneys, mortgagees, or prospective mortgagees, or purchasers or prospective purchasers of Landlords interest in the Building, provided that such recipients hold such information confidential. Tenant also agrees to furnish to Landlord within ten (10) days following Landlords written request therefor (which request shall not be made more than once in any fiscal year unless made in connection with a proposed sale, financing or re-financing of the Building, re-capitalization of Landlord, or following an Event of Default), copies of such financial statements identified above as are then available and balance sheets and cash flow statements for the then current fiscal year prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or another accounting method reasonably approved by Landlord, and on an unaudited basis certified as true and correct by Tenants chief financial officer.

ARTICLE 17 ROOFTOP RIGHTS
17.1 Rooftop Rights.
Landlord grants Tenant the appurtenant, non-exclusive, and irrevocable (except upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease) license at no additional charge, but otherwise subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease, to use a portion of the roof of the Building approved by Landlord (the Rooftop Installation Area) to operate, maintain, repair and replace a supplemental heating, ventilating and air conditioning unit (or units), appurtenant to the uses permitted under Section 7.1 of the Lease (collectively, the Supplemental HVAC Unit). The exact location and layout of the Rooftop Installation Area shall be approved by Landlord and Tenant in their reasonable discretion. Any electricity consumed by the Supplemental HVAC Unit shall be paid for by Tenant in the manner applicable to electricity to the Premises under this Lease.
Tenant shall install the Supplemental HVAC Unit at its sole cost and expense, at such times and in such manner as Landlord may reasonably designate and in accordance with all of the provisions of this Lease, including without limitation Section 8.3. Tenant shall not install or operate the Supplemental HVAC Unit until it receives prior written approval of the plans for such work in accordance with Section 8.3. Landlord may withhold approval if the installation or operation of the Supplemental HVAC Unit reasonably would be expected to damage the structural integrity of the Building. Landlord may condition its approval of the Supplemental HVAC Unit upon Tenants structural re-enforcement of the roof as deemed necessary or desirable by Landlord in order to accommodate the Supplemental HVAC Unit. Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord as reasonably required to accommodate any re-roofing of the Building during the Term and Tenant shall be responsible for any costs associated with working around, moving or temporarily relocating Tenants Roof Equipment. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to complete any such re-roofing as soon as is practicable. Tenant shall have access to the rooftop for the purposes of exercising its rights and obligations under this Article 17 twenty-four (24) hours per day and seven (7) days per week, subject to Landlords reasonable security measures.
Tenant shall engage Landlords roofer before beginning any rooftop installations or repairs of the Supplemental HVAC Unit, whether under this Article 17 or otherwise, and shall always comply with the roof warranty governing the protection of the roof and modifications to the roof. Tenant shall obtain a letter from Landlords roofer following completion of such work stating that the roof warranty remains in effect. Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall cause a qualified employee or contractor to inspect the Rooftop Installation Area at least quarterly and as often as recommended by the manufacturer of the Supplemental HVAC Unit and correct any loose bolts, fittings or other appurtenances and shall repair any damage to the roof caused by the installation or operation of the Supplemental HVAC Unit. Tenant shall pay Landlord following a written request therefor, with the next payment of Base Rent, (i) all applicable taxes or governmental charges, fees, or impositions imposed on Landlord because of Tenants use of the Rooftop Installation Area and (ii) the amount of any increase in Landlords insurance premiums as a result of the installation of the Supplemental HVAC Unit. The Supplemental HVAC Unit shall be screened or otherwise designed so that it is not visible from the ground level of the Property. Unless Landlord notifies Tenant to the contrary at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Term, the Supplemental HVAC Unit shall be removed by Tenant at its own expense at the expiration or earlier termination of the Term or Tenants right to possession hereunder and, in such event, Tenant shall repair any damage caused by such removal.
Tenant agrees that the installation, operation and removal of the Supplemental HVAC Unit shall be at its sole risk. Tenant shall indemnify and defend Landlord and Landlords agents and employees against any liability, claim or cost, including reasonable attorneys fees, incurred in connection with the loss of life, personal injury, damage to property or business or any other loss or injury (except to the extent due to the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its employees, agents or contractors) arising out of the installation, use, operation, or removal of the Supplemental HVAC Unit by Tenant or its employees, agents, or contractors, including any liability arising out of Tenants violation of this Article 17. The provisions of this paragraph shall survive for one (1) year following the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
Landlord may have granted and may hereafter grant roof rights to other parties, and permit installations on the rooftop by other parties, including other Building tenants in the event that Tenant is no longer the sole tenant of the Building. If the Supplemental HVAC Unit (i) causes physical damage to the structural integrity of the Building, (ii) materially interferes with any telecommunications, mechanical or other systems located at or servicing the Building or any building, premises or location in the vicinity of the Building, Tenant shall promptly cooperate with Landlord or any other tenant or third party making such claim to determine the source of such interference and effect a prompt solution at Tenants expense (if the Supplemental HVAC Unit caused such interference or damage).
Based on Landlords good faith determination that such relocation is necessary, Landlord reserves the right to cause Tenant to relocate the Supplemental HVAC Unit located on the roof to comparably functional space on the roof by giving Tenant prior notice of such intention to relocate. If within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice Tenant has not agreed with Landlord on the space to which the Supplemental HVAC Unit is to be relocated, the timing of such relocation, and the terms of such relocation, then Landlord shall have the right to make all such determinations in its reasonable judgment. Landlord agrees to pay the reasonable cost of moving the Supplemental HVAC Unit to such other space, taking such other steps necessary to ensure comparable functionality of the Supplemental HVAC Unit, and finishing such space to a condition comparable to the then condition of the current location of the Supplemental HVAC Unit. Tenant shall arrange for the relocation of the Supplemental HVAC Unit within sixty (60) days after a comparable space is agreed upon or selected by Landlord, as the case may be. In the event Tenant fails to arrange for said relocation within the sixty (60) day period, Landlord shall have the right to arrange for the relocation of the Supplemental HVAC Unit at Landlords expense, all of which shall be performed in a manner designed to minimize interference with Tenants business.
