ARTICLE 2.00 RENT
2.01 Base Rent. Tenant agrees, without demand, setoff or deduction, to pay monthly as Base Rent during the Term of this Lease the sum of money set forth in Section 1.04 of this Lease, which amount shall be payable to Landlord at the address shown above. Monthly installment of Base Rent and Additional Rent (collectively, the “Rent”) shall be due and payable on the first day of each calendar month succeeding the Free Rent Period during the Term of this Lease; provided, if the Expiration Date of this Lease should be a date other than the first day of a calendar month, the monthly rental set forth above shall be prorated to the end of that calendar month. Tenant shall pay, as Additional Rent, all other sums due under this Lease at the same time that monthly Base Rent is due.
2.02 Operating Expenses. Tenant agrees to pay as Additional Rent, (except during the applicable Free Rent Period) Tenant’s pro rata share of Operating Expenses (as hereinafter defined) for the Leased Premises. For purposes of this Lease, Tenant’s pro rata share of Operating Expenses shall be paid by Tenant in the proportion that the Rentable Area in the Leased Premises (as set forth hereinabove) bears to the total Rentable Area in Unit A and Landlord and Tenant agree that such pro rata share shall equal one hundred percent (100%). Landlord may invoice Tenant monthly for Tenant’s pro rata share of the estimated Operating Expenses for each calendar year, which amount shall be adjusted each year based upon anticipated Operating Expenses determined in Landlord’s reasonable discretion. Within four (4) months following the close of each calendar year, Landlord shall provide Tenant an accounting showing in reasonable detail all computations of Operating Expenses due under this section including. In the event the accounting shows that the total of the monthly payments made by Tenant exceeds the amount of Operating Expenses due by Tenant under this section, the accounting shall be accompanied by a refund. In the event the accounting shows that the total of the monthly payments made by Tenant is less than the amount of Operating Expenses due by Tenant under this section, the accounting shall be accompanied by an invoice for the Operating Expenses due as Additional Rent. If this Lease shall terminate on a day other than the last day of a calendar year, the amount of any Additional Rent payable by Tenant applicable to the year in which such termination shall occur shall be prorated on the ratio that the number of days from the commencement of the calendar year to and including the Expiration Date bears to 365. Tenant shall have the right, at its own expense and within six (6) months after Tenant receives the accounting described above, to audit Landlord’s books relevant to the Additional Rent payable under this section upon reasonable notice to Landlord, but not more than once each calendar year; however, if the audit correctly discloses an overpayment by Tenant of more than the greater of (a) five percent (5%) of Operating Expenses or (b) Five Hundred and No/100 Dollars ($500.00), Landlord shall pay for the reasonable cost of such audit. Tenant agrees to keep the results of any audit strictly confidential and pay any Additional Rent due under this section within ten days following receipt of the invoice or accounting showing Additional Rent due.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained elsewhere in this section, it is expressly agreed and understood that Tenant’s obligation to comply with all Applicable Laws does not apply to any violations of Applicable Laws that (a) were in effect and (b) were being violated or with which the Leased Premises was not in compliance immediately prior to the time Tenant accepted the Leased Premises, including without limitation any existing environmental contamination.

The services described in Section 4.01 (“Building Services”) and any repairs and maintenance required of Landlord may be curtailed or interrupted as required by any Applicable Laws or because of the maintenance, repair, replacement, or improvement of the equipment involved in furnishing such services or because of changes of the suppliers of services or because of labor controversies, accidents, acts of God, or the elements or any other cause beyond Landlord’s reasonable control. Landlord agrees to attempt in good faith to resume any curtailed or interrupted Building Services that Landlord is obligated hereunder to provide after receipt of notice from Tenant advising Landlord of the affected services.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained elsewhere herein, Landlord agrees to utilize reasonable efforts to effectuate and promptly complete any maintenance or repairs required to be performed by Landlord hereunder in a manner calculated to cause as little interruption and interference with Tenant’s conduct of business and operations in the Leased Premises as is reasonably practicable. In addition, if Landlord fails to perform any of its repair and maintenance obligations hereunder and such default is not cured by Landlord in accordance within thirty (30) days of written notice of such failure, then Tenant shall have the right, but not the obligation, to perform such repair and maintenance obligations as are reasonably necessary to either (a) prevent any damage to Tenant’s inventory or other personal property and/or (b) obviate any material and adverse effects to Tenant’s business operations resulting therefrom. Any and all reasonable costs and expenses paid or incurred by Tenant in performing any of Landlord’s maintenance obligations in accordance with the terms, conditions, and requirements of the immediately preceding sentence shall be paid by Landlord within fifteen (15) days after Landlord’s receipt from Tenant of an itemized statement describing the repairs and/or maintenance performed.

If Tenant fails to make the repairs or replacements promptly as required herein within thirty (30) days of written notice of such failure, Landlord may, at its option, make the repairs and replacements and the cost of such repairs and replacements shall be charged to Tenant as Additional Rent and shall become due and payable by Tenant within fifteen (15) days from receipt of Landlord’s invoice. Costs incurred under this section are the total responsibility of Tenant and do not constitute Operating Expenses as defined under Section 2.03.

This clause shall not apply to equipment, racking or furniture owned by Tenant, which may be removed by Tenant at the end of the Term of this Lease if Tenant is not then in default and if such equipment and furniture are not then subject to any other rights, liens, and interest of Landlord. Additionally, at the end of the Term of this Lease, at Landlord’s option, Tenant shall remove such moveable equipment or furniture or other personal property as Landlord may request. All property required to be removed pursuant to this section not removed within by shall be conclusively presumed to have been abandoned by Tenant and Landlord may, at its option, take over possession of such property declare the same to be the property of Landlord by written notice to Tenant at the address provided.
ARTICLE 7.00 CASUALTY AND INSURANCE

If the Leased Premises should be totally destroyed by fire or other casualty, or if the Leased Premises should be damaged so that rebuilding in Landlord’s reasonable opinion cannot reasonably be completed within one hundred eighty (180) working days after the date of written notification by Tenant to Landlord of the destruction, this Lease shall, at either party’s option exercised by written notice to the other party on or before that date that is thirty (30) days after the damage or destruction, terminate, and the Rent shall be abated for the unexpired portion of the Lease, effective as of the date of the written notification.

If the Leased Premises are to be rebuilt or repaired and are untenantable in whole or in part following the damage, and the damage or destruction was not caused or contributed to by act or negligence of Tenant or its agents, employees, invitees, or those for whom Tenant is responsible, the Rent payable under this Lease during the period for which the Leased Premises are untenantable shall be adjusted or abated to such an extent as may be fair and reasonable under the circumstances. In the event that Landlord fails to substantially complete the necessary repairs or rebuilding within two hundred forty (240) working days from the date of written notification by Tenant to Landlord of the destruction, Tenant may at its option terminate this Lease by delivering written notice of termination to Landlord before such time as Landlord has substantially completed the repairs or rebuilding, whereupon all rights and obligations under this Lease shall cease to exist. Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, Landlord’s duty or obligation to repair or rebuild the Leased Premises shall be limited to the extent, and only to the extent, of the insurance proceeds Landlord actually receives, in connection with any such damage or destruction after deducting Landlord’s reasonable costs and expenses in obtaining such insurance proceeds.

The policies evidencing such insurance must be in broad form satisfactory to Landlord, must name Landlord and its property management company as additional insureds, must be issued by insurance companies acceptable to Landlord, and must afford immediate protection to the limit of not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) per occurrence and $2,000,000 aggregate with a deductible acceptable to Landlord. Tenant shall also deliver the policy or a certificate evidencing the same to Landlord prior to occupying the Leased Premises or commencing the construction of any improvements therein, and Tenant shall deliver a certificate of renewal from the applicable insurer at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the policy.

Landlord shall at times during the Term of this Lease maintain a policy or policies of general liability insurance with the premiums paid in advance, issued by and binding upon some solvent insurance company, with respect to Landlord’s activities in the Leased Premises, such insurance to afford minimum protection of not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) per occurrence and Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) aggregate coverage of bodily injury, death, property damage, or a combination thereof. Landlord shall not be required to maintain insurance against thefts within the Leased Premises. Tenant shall carry property insurance on an all-risk extended coverage basis endorsed to provide 100% replacement cost coverage on all personal property and equipment in the Leased Premises.

7.04 Waiver of Subrogation. Anything in this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, Landlord and Tenant hereby waive and release each other of and from any and all right of recovery, claim, action, or cause of action, against each other, their agents, partners, officers, and employees, for any loss or damage that may occur to the Leased Premises, or personal property within the Leased Premises, by reason of fire, casualty, or the elements, regardless of cause or origin, including the negligence of Landlord or Tenant and their agents, officers, partners, and employees. Landlord and Tenant agree immediately to give their respective insurance companies that have issued policies of insurance covering risks of direct physical loss written notice of the terms of the mutual waivers contained in this section, and to have the insurance policies properly endorsed, if necessary, to prevent the invalidation of the insurance coverages by reason of the mutual waivers provided above. WITHOUT LIMITATION, LANDLORD AND TENANT INTEND THAT THE FOREGOING RELEASES BY LANDLORD AND TENANT BE EFFECTIVE NOTWITHSTANDING ANY STRICT LIABILITY AND/OR NEGLIGENCE (BUT NOT GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT) ON THE OTHER PARTY’S PART.
7.05 Hold Harmless. Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless of and from any loss, reasonable attorney’s fees, expenses, claims, fines, suits, costs, and liability of every kind arising because of any bodily injury, death, and/or damage to property occurring in or resulting from any occurrence in the Leased Premises during the Term of this Lease and any holdover period save and except for any costs occasioned by the gross negligence or willful wrongful acts of Landlord or its agents or employees. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant, Tenant’s employees, agents, invitees, licensees, or visitors, or to any other person, for any injury to person or damage to property on or about the Leased Premises caused by any act or omission of Tenant or its agents, servants, or employees, or of any other person entering upon the Leased Premises under express or implied invitation by Tenant, or caused by the improvements located on the Leased Premises becoming out of repair, the failure or cessation of any service provided by Landlord (including security service and devices), or caused by leakage of gas, oil, water, or steam or by electricity emanating from the Leased Premises. WITHOUT LIMITATION, LANDLORD AND TENANT INTEND AND AGREE THAT THE FOREGOING INDEMNITIES AND RELEASES SHALL APPLY TO EACH INDEMNIFIED PARTY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LOSS, ATTORNEYS’ FEES, EXPENSES, CLAIMS, FINES, SUITS, COSTS, AND LIABILITY OF EVERY KIND THAT IN WHOLE OR IN PART ARE CAUSED BY OR ARISE OUT OF THE NEGLIGENCE OF SUCH (AND/OR ANY OTHER) INDEMNIFIED PARTY.
