The Letter of Credit shall be callable at sight upon presentation of the statement required thereunder, permit partial draws and multiple presentations and drawings, and be otherwise subject to the International Standby Practices-ISP 98, International Chamber of Commerce Publication #590.

Subtenant shall neither assign nor encumber the Letter of Credit or any part thereof. Neither Sublandlord nor its successors or assigns will be bound by any assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance by Subtenant in violation of this Section 21.3(a). If the Letter of Credit held by Sublandlord expires earlier than the Final LC Expiration Date (whether by reason of a stated expiration date or a notice of termination or non-renewal given by the Issuing Bank), Subtenant shall deliver a new or amended Letter of Credit or certificate of renewal or extension to Sublandlord not later than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration or termination of the Letter of Credit then held by Sublandlord. Any renewal, amended or replacement Letter of Credit shall comply with all of the provisions of this Section 21.3.
4.2.2 Drawing under Letter of Credit. Sublandlord, or its then managing agent, without prejudice to any other remedy provided in this Sublease or by law, shall have the right to draw down an amount up to the face amount of the Letter of Credit if any of the following shall have occurred or be applicable: (i) Subtenant is in Default, (ii) Subtenant has failed to pay Rent timely and has filed a voluntary petition under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or any State bankruptcy code (collectively, Bankruptcy Code), (iii) Subtenant has failed to pay Rent timely and an involuntary petition has been filed against Subenant under the Bankruptcy Code, or (iv) the Issuing Bank has notified Sublandlord that the Letter of Credit will not be renewed or extended through the Final LC Expiration Date and Subtenant fails timely to provide a replacement Letter of Credit pursuant to the requirements stated above (the events described in clauses (ii), (iii) and (iv) above, collectively, being referred to herein as an Insolvency Event). Upon any such draw, Landlord may draw all or any part of the Letter of Credit as set forth in this Section 4.2.

(a) Subtenant agrees that it will occupy the Subleased Premises in accordance with the terms of the Master Lease and will not knowingly suffer to be done or omit to do any act which may result in a violation of or a default under any of the terms and conditions of the Master Lease, or render Sublandlord liable for any damage, charge or expense thereunder.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sublandlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to keep the Master Lease in effect, and provided that there is no uncured default hereunder by Subtenant, upon Subtenants request to Sublandlord to do so, Sublandlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts, as reasonably indicated under the circumstances, to obtain the performance by Landlord of its obligations under the Master Lease and/or to obtain the consent or approval of Landlord of any action Subtenant desires to take that requires such consent or approval; provided, however, if Landlord defaults under the Master Lease or fails to perform any of its obligations under the Master Lease after receipt of written notice from Sublandlord of such failure, Sublandlord shall either institute legal proceedings against Landlord directly, or assign to Sublandlords rights under the Master Lease to Subtenant to the extent necessary to permit Subtenant to institute legal proceedings against the Landlord to obtain performance of Landlords obligations under the Master Lease. If Sublandlord fails to abide by the provision set forth in the previous sentence, Subtenant shall have the right to take such action and institute legal proceedings in the name of Sublandlord, and for the purpose and to such extent, all rights and remedies of Sublandlord under the Master Lease are hereby conferred upon and assigned to Subtenant.

In no event shall Subtenant be responsible or liable for any structural improvements or modifications to the Subleased Premises or the Building or any base building upgrades.

Interference with Landlords Work caused by Tenant or by Tenants contractors or subcontractors; or
A breach of, or a default by Tenant under this Lease (including, without limitation Exhibit C) which remains uncured after expiration of applicable notice and cure periods.
Except as expressly set forth herein, Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for any delays in the delivery of possession and neither Landlord nor Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease as the result of such delays. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary elsewhere herein, if the Delivery Date has not occurred (i) on or before November 15, 2015 for reasons other than due to Tenant Delays or Force Majeure, Tenant shall be entitled to rent abatement of one (1) day for each day of delay after November 15, 2015, (ii) on or before December 15, 2015 for reasons other than due to Tenant Delays or Force Majeure, Tenant shall be entitled to rent abatement of two (2) days for each day of delay after December 15, 2015, and (iii) in the event the Delivery Date does not occur on or before January 15, 2016, Tenant, in its sole and absolute discretion, may elect to terminate this Lease by delivering written notice to Landlord at any time prior to the date the Delivery Date actually occurs, provided, such delay is not the direct result of a Tenant Delay. Any rent abatement accrued shall be credited starting with the first day Rent commences after occurrence of the actual Delivery Date.
Landlords Work; As-ls Delivery. Landlord shalt deliver the Premises to Tenant on the Delivery Date: vacant, broom clean and with the Building Systems (as defined in below) in good working order (the Delivery Condition). Tenant acknowledges that Substantial Completion of the Landlords Work shall not be a precondition to Landlords ability to tender delivery of the Premises to Tenant. Landlord represents that the exterior of the Building will conform to governmental regulations, including ADA (as defined below) upon completion of the Landlords Work; however, Tenant acknowledges that some exterior ADA-compliance work to 4251-4255 Burton Drive may remain to be done by Landlord following the Commencement Date, such that (i) the Commencement Date will not be delayed or deferred thereby, and (ii) completion of remaining items of Landlords Work shall not prohibit Tenant from obtaining or maintaining, in connection with the Tenant Improvements, final permit sign-off and any other approval which is required from the City of Santa Clara in order for Tenant to legally occupy the Premises, and Landlord shall complete same with reasonable diligence, whereupon Landlords warranty with respect to such work at 4255 Burton Drive shall fully apply. Landlord further represents that, subject to Tenants completion of the Tenant Improvements, all structural elements and existing subsystems of the Premises, including but not limited to HVAC, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, life safety and sprinkler systems (collectively, the Building Systems) are in good working condition and repair upon the Delivery Date. Should any of the Building Systems need repair or replacement during the initial one hundred and twenty (120) days following the Delivery Date, Landlord shall promptly repair such at its sole cost and expense, the costs of which shall not be included as Operating Expenses.
The term of this Lease shall commence on the Commencement Date and expire on the Expiration Date (the Lease Term). The Expiration Date of this Lease shall be the date stated in the Basic Lease Terms or, if delivery of the Premises is delayed as set forth in Paragraph 2.1 or Paragraph 2.2, the last day of the calendar month that is the number of full calendar months stated in the Basic Lease Terms from the month in which the Commencement Date occurs. When the actual Commencement Date is determined, the parties shall execute a Commencement Date Memorandum setting forth such date in the form attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit D.
Option to Extend Term. Provided that Tenant is not in default under this Lease (beyond the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods) at the time of exercise of its Extension Option (hereafter defined in this Paragraph 3.1 and at commencement of the Extension Term (hereafter defined in this Paragraph 3.1, Tenant shall have the option (the Extension Option) to extend the initial term of this Lease (the Initial Term) for one (1) period of three (3) years (the Extension Term), commencing at the expiration of the Initial Term.
If Tenant exercises the Extension Option, Tenant shall give unconditional written notice (the Exercise Notice) of its exercise to Landlord not earlier than twelve (12) months and not later than nine (9) months prior to the expiration of the Initial Term. Tenants failure to give the
|Exercise Notice in a timely manner shall be deemed a waiver of Tenants Extension Option. The terms, covenants and conditions applicable to the Extension Term shall be the same terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease applicable during the Initial Term, except that: (i) Tenant shall not be entitled to any further options to extend the Term of this Lease beyond the Extension Term; and (ii) the Monthly Rent for the Premises shall be the Fair Market Rental Value (hereafter defined in Paragraph 3.1.2) of the Premises. All unexercised Extension Options shall automatically terminate and become null and void upon the earlier to occur of (1) the occurrence of any uncured event of default by Tenant (beyond the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods) of any monetary obligation hereunder, (2) the termination of Tenants right to possession of the Premises, (3) the termination of this Lease, (4) any assignment or transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, of all or substantially all of Tenants interest in this Lease (other than to a Permitted Transferee), or (5) the failure of Tenant to timely or properly exercise its Extension Option as aforesaid. Once delivered, an Exercise Notice cannot be rescinded or revoked by Tenant.|
For purposes of this Paragraph 3.1, Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises shall be equal to the greater of (a) the base rental rate being paid in the final year of the Initial Term, or (b) one hundred percent (100%) of the rental rate at which tenants lease comparable space to the Premises which is located in the Santa Clara submarket as of the commencement of the Extension Term. For this purpose, comparable space shall be a proportional combination of research and development and office space that is: (i) not subleased; (ii) not subject to another tenants expansion rights; (iii) comparable in age, size, location, and quality to the Premises; and (iv) leased for a term comparable to the Extension Term. In determining the rental rate of comparable space, the parties shall take into consideration periodic rent escalations and also take into consideration the following concessions for renewing tenants: (A) rental abatement concessions, if any, being granted to renewing tenants in connection with the comparable space; and (B) tenant improvements or allowances provided or to be provided for the comparable space, taking into account the value of the existing improvements in the applicable premises, based on the age, quality, and layout of the improvements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises as determined pursuant to this Paragraph 3.1 shall include annual escalations during the Extension Term.
Within thirty (30) days after Landlord receives the Exercise Notice, Landlord shall provide in writing to Tenant its estimate of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises for the Extension Term. Landlord and Tenant shall for an additional thirty (30) days thereafter attempt in good faith to agree on the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises for the Extension Term. If Landlord and Tenant agree on the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises for the Extension Term during such thirty (30) day period, they shall immediately execute an amendment to this Lease stating the Monthly Rent for the Extension Term.
If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree on the Monthly Rent for the Extension Term within the thirty (30) day period described in the second sentence in Paragraph 3.1.3, then within ten (10) days after the expiration of said thirty (30) day period, either Landlord or Tenant may
|refer the matter to arbitration as provided for in this Paragraph 3.1.4. The determination of the arbitrator(s) shall be limited to the sole issue of whether Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Rental Value is the closest to the actual Fair Market Rental Value as determined by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) must be a neutral licensed real estate broker(s) who has/have been active in the leasing of commercial properties in the Santa Clara, California area over the five (5) year period ending on the date of his/her/their appointment as arbitrator(s). Landlord and Tenant reserve the right to object to any arbitrator that has conducted business with the other party at any time over the three (3) year period ending on the date of his/her/their appointment as arbitrator(s). Within thirty (30) days after the date either Landlord or Tenant has referred to arbitration the determination of Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises (the Arbitration Referral Date), Landlord and Tenant shall each (i) appoint one arbitrator and notify the other party of the arbitrators name and business address, and (ii) notify the other party of their determination of Fair Market Rental Value. If each party timely appoints an arbitrator, the two (2) arbitrators shall, within fifteen (15) days after the appointment of the second arbitrator, agree on and appoint a third arbitrator (who shall be qualified under the same criteria set forth above for qualification of the initial two (2) arbitrators) and provide notice to Landlord and Tenant of the arbitrators name and business address. Within thirty (30) days after the appointment of the third arbitrator, the three (3) arbitrators shall decide whether the parties will use Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Rental Value and shall notify Landlord and Tenant of their decision. The decision of the majority of the three (3) arbitrators shall be binding on Landlord and Tenant. If either Landlord or Tenant fails to appoint an arbitrator within thirty (30) days after the Arbitration Referral Date, the arbitrator timely appointed by one of them shall reach a decision and notify Landlord and Tenant of that decision within thirty (30) days after the arbitrators appointment. The arbitrators decision shall be binding on Landlord and Tenant. If each party appoints an arbitrator in a timely manner, but the two (2) arbitrators fail to agree on and appoint a third arbitrator within the required period, the arbitrators shall be dismissed without delay and the issue of Fair Market Rental Value shall be submitted to binding arbitration under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), provided that in the event of any inconsistency between such arbitration rules and the terms and conditions of this Paragraph 3.1.4, the terms and conditions of this Paragraph 3.1.4 shall govern; and provided, further however, that the sole function of the AAA arbitrator shall be to select either Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Rental Value. If Landlord and Tenant each fail to appoint an arbitrator in a timely manner, the matter to be decided shall be submitted without delay to binding arbitration under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, subject to the provisions of this Paragraph 3.1.4. If only one of the parties has given notice of its determination of Fair Market Rental Value within thirty (30) days after the Arbitration Referral Date, then such determination shall be the Fair Market Rental Value for the Premises for the Extension Term. If Landlord and Tenant both fail to give notice of their determination of Fair Market Rental value within thirty (30) days after the Arbitration Referral Date, the determination of Fair Market Rental Value shall be submitted without delay to binding arbitration under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, subject to the provisions of this Paragraph 3.1.4, and provided, further however, that the sole|
|function of the AAA arbitrator shall be to select either Landlords or Tenants submitted Fair Market Rental Value. The cost of the arbitration as provided for in this Paragraph 3,1.4 shall be paid by the losing party. After the Monthly Rent for the Extension Term has been set, the arbitrator(s) shall immediately notify Landlord and Tenant, and Landlord and Tenant shall immediately execute an amendment to this Lease stating the Monthly Rent for the Extension Term.|
Tenants Early Termination Option. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, provided Tenant is not, at the time of notice, in material default of this Lease beyond the expiration of any applicable notice and cure period, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease effective as of the last day of the sixty-second (62nd) full Lease Month of the Initial Term (the Early Termination Date). To exercise such right, Tenant must provide written notice to Landlord at least twelve (12) months prior to the Early Termination Date.

Landlord, at its sole cost and expense, shall be responsible only for (i) repair and replacement of the foundation of the Building (ii) repair and replacement of the structural elements of the Building, except for any damage thereto caused by the negligence or willful acts or omissions of Tenant or of Tenants Agents or invitees, or by reason of the failure of Tenant to perform or comply with any terms of this Lease, or caused by any Alterations made by Tenant or by Tenants Agents. The structural elements of the Building shall consists of only the following parts of the Building: the foundation and subflooring, floor/ceiling slabs, the roof structure (including the roof membrane), and the exterior walls, interior bearing or structural walls (excluding, however, interior wall surfaces), curtain walls, mullions, columns, and beams.

Landlord shall at all times have exclusive control of the Outside Area, including the right to grant easements or other rights of access to third parties so long as such easements or other rights granted to third parties do not materially impact Tenants business operations, and may at any time temporarily close any part thereof for a reasonable time to the extent necessary, exclude and restrain anyone from any part thereof, except the bona fide customers, employees and invitees of Tenant who use the Outside Area in accordance with the rules and regulations as Landlord may from time to time promulgate, and may change the configuration of the Outside Area. In exercising any such rights, Landlord shall make a reasonable effort to minimize any disruption of Tenants business. In connection with any temporary closure of any portion of the Outside Area for such purposes, Landlord shall make a reasonable effort to not deprive Tenant of reasonable access to the Premises or the ability of Tenant to conduct its business in the ordinary course. It is an express condition precedent to all obligations of Landlord to repair that Tenant shall have notified Landlord of the need for such repairs.|
Tenant Maintenance and Repairs. Tenant shall at all times and at its own expense clean, keep and maintain in good order, condition and repair, and shall replace, every part of the Premises that is not within Landlords obligation pursuant to Paragraph 7.2. Tenants repair and maintenance obligations shall include, without limitation, all of the following which are a part of the Premises, which are located in, on or about the Premises, or which are located outside the Premises but serve the Premises: mechanical, electrical, gas, plumbing, water, exhaust, telephone, other communication, and data systems, fixtures, pipes, conduits, appliances, equipment, facilities, and units; fixtures, interior walls, ceiling, floors, windows, doors, entrances, plate glass, skylights, and fans; lighting fixtures, ballasts, lamps and non-structural portions of the roof.

Security. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Tenant is responsible for securing the Premises and that Landlord does not, and shall not be obligated to, provide any police personnel or other security services or systems for any portion of the Premises, Building, Outside Area and/or Project.
Interference. Landlord shall have no liability for interference with Tenants use when making alterations, improvements or repairs to the Building, Outside Area or the Project provided the work is performed in a reasonable manner. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in exercising any such rights, Landlord shall make a reasonable effort to minimize any disruption of Tenants business, and Landlord shall make a reasonable effort to not deprive Tenant of reasonable access to the Premises or the ability of Tenant to conduct its business in the ordinary course.
Taxes, Assessments and Operating Expenses.
Payments. Tenant shall pay Landlord monthly, as Additional Rent, Tenants proportionate share of Operating Expenses and Taxes which are, as determined by Landlord, allocable or attributable to the Building, the parcel on which the Building is located, the Outside Area within the parcel on which the Building is located and such other Outside Areas at the Project; provided, however, and notwithstanding any provision of this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall pay Landlord, in accordance with this Paragraph 8, the entire amount (and not just Tenants proportionate share) of any Operating Expense incurred by Landlord which relates solely to the Premises or which are incurred solely for or on behalf of Tenant. Commencing on the Commencement Date (subject to Paragraph 3) and thereafter in advance on the first day of each month during the Lease Term, Tenant shall pay a monthly sum as Additional Rent representing Tenants proportionate share of Taxes and Operating Expenses. Within one hundred eighty (180) days following the end of each calendar year, or as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible, Landlord shall furnish Tenant a statement of such actual expenses (Actual Expenses) for the calendar year and the payments made by Tenant with respect to such period. If Tenants payments for Operating Expenses and Taxes do not equal the amount of the Actual Expenses, Tenant shall pay Landlord the deficiency within forty-five (45) days after receipt of such statement. If Tenants payments exceed the Actual Expenses, Landlord shall offset the excess against the Operating Expenses thereafter becoming due to Landlord. There shall be appropriate adjustments of Operating Expenses and Taxes as of the Commencement Date and expiration of the Lease Term.
Tenants Proportionate Share. Tenants proportionate share of Taxes shall mean that percentage which the Premises Area set forth in the Basic Lease Terms bears to the total rentable square footage of all buildings in the Project located on the same Tax Parcel as the Building. Tenants proportionate share of Operating Expenses for the Building shall be computed by dividing the Premises Area by the total rentable area of the Building. If in Landlords reasonable judgment either of these methods of allocation results in an inappropriate allocation to Tenant, Landlord shall select some other reasonable method of determining Tenants proportionate share.
Taxes Charged. As used herein, Taxes means any form of assessment, license, fee, rent tax, levy, penalty (if a result of Tenants delinquency), or tax (other than net income, estate, succession, inheritance transfer or franchise taxes), imposed by any authority having the direct or indirect power to tax, or by any city, county, state or federal government or any improvement or other district or division thereof, whether such tax is: (i) determined by the area of the tax parcel in which the Building is located (the Tax Parcel) or any part thereof or the rent and other sums payable hereunder by Tenant or by other tenants, including, but not limited to, any gross income or excise tax levied by any of the foregoing authorities with respect to receipt of such rent or other sums due under this Lease; (ii) imposed upon any legal or equitable interest
|of Landlord in the Tax Parcel or the Premises or any part thereof; (iii) imposed upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring any interest in the Tax Parcel; (iv) levied or assessed in lieu of, in substitution for, or in addition to, existing or additional taxes against the Tax Parcel whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties; (v) imposed as a special assessment for such purposes as fire protection, street, sidewalk, road, utility construction and maintenance, refuse removal and for other governmental services; or (vi) imposed as a result of any transfer of any interest in the Tax Parcel by Landlord, or the construction of any improvements thereon or thereto. Tenant shall not, however, be obligated to pay any tax based upon Landlords net income. In addition, Tenant shall be liable for all taxes levied or assessed against any personal property or fixtures placed in the Premises and, when possible, shall cause such taxes to be assessed and billed separately from the real or personal property of Landlord. If any such taxes are levied or assessed against Landlord or Landlords property and (i) Landlord pays the same or (ii) the assessed value of Landlords property is increased by inclusion of such personal property and fixtures and Landlord pays the increased taxes, then, within thirty (30) days following receipt by Tenant of a copy of the applicable tax bill with Landlords written request for payment thereof. Tenant shall pay to Landlord such taxes as part of Tenants payment of Taxes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Taxes shall not include late fees, penalties, mortgage recording taxes and any interest related to late fees and/or delinquent payments.|

Tenant shall, however, be entitled to make a separate claim for moving and relocation expenses and other damages suffered by Tenant, and Landlord agrees to reasonably cooperate, at no additional cost to Landlord, with Tenant to the extent such claim must be submitted with those of Landlord provided that in no event shall Landlords award be reduced by any claim made by Tenant.
Landlord shall proceed as soon as reasonably possible to make such repairs and alterations to the Premises as are necessary to restore the remaining Premises and/or the remaining Outside Area serving the Premises to a condition as comparable as reasonably practicable to that existing at the time of condemnation. Landlord need not incur expenses for restoration in excess of the amount of condemnation proceeds received by Landlord after payment of all reasonable costs, expenses and attorneys fees incurred by Landlord in connection therewith.
Rent shall be abated during the period of restoration to the extent the Premises are not reasonably usable by Tenant for the use permitted by Paragraph 6.1, and rent shall be reduced for the remainder of the Lease Term in an amount equal to the reduction in rental value of the Premises caused by the taking.
Total Taking. Either party may terminate this Lease if any material part of the Premises is taken or condemned for any public or quasi-public use under Law, by eminent domain or private purchase in lieu thereof (a Taking). Landlord shall be entitled to all of the proceeds of condemnation, and Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord as a result of such condemnation, except for any portions of such award or proceeds which are specifically allocated by a court of competent jurisdiction for the taking of or damage to trade fixtures of Tenant, Tenants moving expenses or any other damages personal to Tenant as determined by the court which if sought by or paid to Tenant will not reduce the award to which Landlord would in the absence of such payment be entitled to claim for its account. If only a part of the Premises is subject to a Taking and this Lease is not terminated, Landlord, with reasonable
|diligence, will restore the remaining portion of the Premises as nearly as practicable to the condition immediately prior to the Taking. Tenant agrees that the provisions of this Lease shall govern any Taking and shall accordingly supersede any contrary statute or rule of law.|
Assignment, Subletting and Other Transfers.
General. Except with respect to a Permitted Transfer (as defined below), neither the Lease nor any part of the Premises may be assigned, mortgaged, subleased or otherwise transferred, nor may a right of use of any portion of the Premises be conferred on any person or entity by any other means, without the prior written consent of Landlord which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Prior to effectuating any such assignment, sublease or other transfer, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing of the name and address of the proposed transferee, and deliver to Landlord with such notice a true and complete copy of the proposed assignment agreement, sublease or other occupancy agreement, current financial statements of such proposed transferee, a statement of the use of the Premises by such proposed transferee and such other information or documents as may be necessary or appropriate to enable Landlord to determine the qualifications of the proposed transferee together with a request that Landlord consent thereto (Tenants Notice). Should Landlord request confidential items such as financial information, Landlord shall sign a commercially reasonable non-disclosure agreement with whichever party is providing the confidential information, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to both parties. Without limiting Landlords ability to deny or condition consent for any other reason, it shall not be considered unreasonable if Landlords consent to a proposed sublease, assignment or other transfer is denied based on the following: (i) the business of the proposed transferee (A) is not compatible with the nature and character of the Project or the businesses in the Project and/or (B) will conflict with any exclusive uses or use restrictions that Landlord has granted to other occupants of the Project (as of the Reference Date of this Lease, there are no such exclusive uses or use restrictions), (ii) the financial strength of the proposed transferee is not at least equal to the financial strength of Tenant either at the time Tenant entered into this Lease or at the time of the proposed transfer (whichever is greater), (iii) excessively overpark the Building and/or the Project with automobiles or trucks (excessively overpark shall mean that the proposed transferees parking will violate local parking restrictions or will interfere with other tenants occupying the Building or the Project), (iv) the proposed transferee has a record of environmental contamination or their anticipated use of the Premises involves the generation, storage, use, sale, treatment, release or disposal of any Hazardous Materials, (v) the proposed form of sublease, assignment or other occupancy agreement is unacceptable (unacceptable form of sublease, assignment or other occupancy agreement shall mean that the content and format of the form are not consistent with the terms of this Lease or the CC&Rs or are not consistent with the terms and requirements of Landlords loan documents for the Building), (vi) the proposed transferee is a governmental entity or agency or non-profit entity, or (vii) the proposed transferee is a party with whom Landlord has been, within the prior three months, actually negotiating to lease space at the Project. Any attempted assignment, subletting, transfer or encumbrance by Tenant in violation of the terms and covenants of this Paragraph 14.1 shall be void.
Landlords Alternatives. Except in the event of a Permitted Transfer (which shall not be subject to the provisions of this Paragraph 14.2), within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of the information specified in Paragraph 14.1, Landlord shall, by written notice to Tenant, elect: (i) if the proposed transfer is a sublease, then to terminate this Lease as of the commencement date stated in the proposed sublease with respect to all or any portion of the Premises Tenant proposes to sublease, or if the proposed transfer is an assignment of Tenants interest in the Lease, then to terminate this Lease as of the commencement date stated in the proposed assignment; (ii) to consent to the transfer by Tenant; or (iii) to refuse its consent to the transfer. If Landlord proceeds under clause (ii) of this Paragraph 14.2 and consents to the transfer, Tenant may thereafter enter into a valid sublet of the Premises or portion thereof, upon the terms and conditions and with the proposed transferee set forth in the information furnished by Tenant to Landlord pursuant to Paragraph 14.1, subject, however, to the requirements of Paragraph 14.4.
Permitted Transfer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and subject to Paragraph 6,1 of this Lease regarding the use of the Premises and Paragraph 6.6, Landlords prior written consent shall not be required for an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of the entire Premises to any of the following transferees (each such transferee being a Permitted Transferee): (i) an Affiliate (hereafter defined in this Paragraph 14.3) of Tenant; (ii) a corporation or other valid entity into which Tenant merges or consolidates; and (iii) a transferee that purchases all of, or at least ninety percent (90%) of, Tenants assets. The assignment of this Lease to or a sublease of the entire Premises to a Permitted Transferee shall be subject to the following conditions: (A) Tenant shall give Landlord prior written notice of the name of any such assignee or subtenant; (B) any assignee shall assume, in writing, for the benefit of Landlord all of Tenants obligations under this Lease, and any subtenant shall agree, in writing, for the benefit of Landlord that such sublease is subject to and subordinate to this Lease; (C) the Tenant shall not be released from any obligations under this Lease; and (D) the Permitted Transferee shall have a tangible net worth which is at least equal to the greater of Tenants tangible net worth at the time of the assignment or sublease, as applicable, or on the Effective Date. The term Affiliate as used herein shall mean any partnership, limited liability company, or corporation, which directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with another partnership, limited liability company, or corporation. The term control as used in the immediately preceding sentence shall mean with respect to a corporation the right to exercise, directly or indirectly, more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting rights attributable to the controlled corporation, and, with respect to any partnership or, the possession, directly or indirectly, of the power to direct or cause the direction of the management or policies of the controlled partnership or limited liability company, as applicable.
No Release; Excess Rent. No assignment, subletting or other transfer, whether consented to by Landlord or not, or permitted hereunder, shall relieve Tenant of its liability under this Lease. If an event of default occurs while the Premises or any part thereof are assigned, sublet or otherwise transferred, then Landlord, in addition to any other remedies herein provided, or
|provided by law, may collect directly from such assignee, sublessee or transferee all rents payable to Tenant and apply such rent against any sums due Landlord hereunder. No such collection shall be construed to constitute a novation or a release of Tenant from the further performance of Tenants obligations hereunder. If Tenant assigns or otherwise transfers this Lease or sublets the Premises for an amount in excess of the rent called for by this Lease, one-half of the Excess Consideration (as defined below) shall be paid to Landlord within ten (10) days following receipt by Tenant. As used herein, Excess Consideration means all rents or other sums received by Tenant under any such assignment, sublease or other transfer which are in excess of the rents and other sums payable by Tenant under this Lease after deduction therefrom for reasonable costs actually paid by Tenant for additional improvements installed in the portion of the Premises subject to such assignment, sublease or other transfer by Tenant at Tenants sole cost and expense for the specific assignee, sublessee or other transfer in question and reasonable leasing commissions and attorneys fees paid by Tenant in connection with such assignment, sublease or other transfer, without deduction for carrying costs due to vacancy or otherwise, For the purposes of determining the Excess Consideration payable to Landlord pursuant to Paragraph 14.2, if a portion of the Premises is sublet, the pro rata share of the rent attributable to such partial area of the Premises shall be determined by Landlord by dividing the rent payable by Tenant hereunder by the total square footage of the Premises and multiplying the resulting quotient (the per square foot rent) by the number of square feet of the Premises which are sublet. Landlord may hire outside consultants to review the transfer documents and information, Tenant shall pay Landlord an administrative fee of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) and in addition shall reimburse Landlord for all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with any request for consent under this Paragraph (even if consent is denied or the request is withdrawn) and such reimbursement shall include the allocated cost of Landlords or its management companys staff plus all out-of-pocket expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees, on demand.|

If any failure described in clause (iii) of the immediately preceding sentence cannot be cured within the thirty (30)-day period, this provision shall be deemed complied with so long as Tenant commences correction within such period and thereafter proceeds in good faith and with reasonable diligence to effect the remedy as soon as practicable, in no event to exceed sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from Landlord.
Tenants insolvency; assignment for the benefit of its creditors: Tenants voluntary petition in bankruptcy or adjudication as bankrupt; attachment of or the levying of execution on the leasehold interest and failure of Tenant to secure discharge of the attachment or release of the levy of execution within ten (10) days: or the appointment of a receiver for Tenants properties.

Failure of Tenant to deliver the documents or agreements required under Paragraphs 18.1 and/or 18.3 within the relevant time period(s) specified therein.
Remedies. Upon a default which remains uncured following the expiration of any applicable notice and cure period, Landlord shall have the following remedies, in addition to all other rights and remedies provided by law or otherwise provided in this Lease, to which Landlord may resort cumulatively or in the alternative:
Landlord may continue this Lease in full force and effect, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as long as Landlord does not terminate this Lease, and Landlord shall have the right to collect Rent when due.
Landlord may terminate. Tenants right to possession of the Premises at any time by giving written notice to that effect, and relet the Premises or any part thereof. Tenant shall be liable immediately to Landlord for all costs Landlord incurs in reletting the Premises or any part thereof, including, without limitation, brokers commissions, expenses of cleaning and redecorating the Premises required by the reletting and like costs. Reletting may be for a period shorter or longer than the remaining term of this Lease. No act by Landlord other than giving written notice to Tenant shall terminate this Lease. Acts of maintenance, efforts to relet the Premises or the appointment of a receiver on Landlords initiative to protect Landlords interest under this Lease shall not constitute a termination of Tenants right to possession. On termination, Landlord has the right to remove all Tenants personal property and store the same at Tenants cost and to recover from Tenant as damages:
(i) The worth at the time of award of unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable which had been earned at the time of termination; plus
(ii) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable which would have been payable after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant prove could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iii) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable for the balance of the Lease Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; plus
(iv) Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenants failure to perform Tenants obligations under this Lease, or which, in the ordinary course of things, would be likely to result therefrom, including, without limitation, any costs or expenses incurred by Landlord: (A) in retaking possession of the Premises; (B) in maintaining, repairing, preserving, restoring, replacing, cleaning, altering or rehabilitating the Premises or any portion thereof, including such acts for reletting to a new tenant or tenants; (C) for leasing commissions; or (D) for any other costs necessary or appropriate to relet the Premises; plus
(v) At Landlords election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by the laws of the State of California.
The worth at the time of award of the amounts referred to in Paragraphs 15.2.2(i) and 15.2.2(ii) is computed by allowing interest at the interest rate as provided in Paragraph 25.2 on the unpaid rent and other sums due and payable from the termination date through the date of award. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in Paragraph 15.2.2(iii) is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%). Tenant waives redemption or relief from forfeiture under California Code of Civil Procedure §1174 and §1179, or under any other present or future law, in the event Tenant is evicted or Landlord takes possession of the Premises by reason of any default of Tenant hereunder.
Landlord may, with or without terminating this Lease, re-enter the Premises and remove all persons and property from the Premises; such 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 Paragraph 15.2 shall be construed as an election to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention is given to Tenant.
Tenant acknowledges that certain benefits or concessions provided by Landlord are conditioned upon Tenants timely, fully and faithful performance of each and every obligation, covenant, representation and warranty of this Lease throughout the entire term of this Lease, even though such benefits or concessions may be realized by Tenant over less than the entire term of this Lease. Accordingly, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the event Landlord brings an action against Tenant for default under this Lease, Landlord shall become immediately entitled to receive from Tenant as additional rent the amount of all such benefits and concessions allocable to the balance of the Lease term on a pro rata basis, i.e., an amount equal to the product of (x) the sum of (a) any amounts theretofore or thereafter paid by Landlord to Tenant or to any third party, or any amounts credited to Tenant or to any third party, for of on account of (i) any moving, tenant improvement, decorating or other allowance or credit granted to Tenant, (ii) any real estate commission paid on account of this Lease, and (iii) any expenses or costs related to assumption by Landlord of any other lease, plus (b) an amount equal to the difference between the Base Rent specified in this Lease and rent for any period for which this Lease provides any lesser amount including zero or nominal rent, including for any period of early occupancy of the Premises prior to the Commencement
|Date of this Lease, plus (c) the amount spent by Landlord for any tenant improvements to the Premises; multiplied by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days of the term of this Lease remaining between the date of default and the expiration of the term of this Lease, and the denominator of which is the total number of days for the term of this Lease.|
The commencement of a bankruptcy action or liquidation action or reorganization action or insolvency action or an assignment of or by Tenant for the benefit of creditors, or any similar action undertaken by Tenant, or the insolvency of Tenant, shall, at Landlords option, constitute a breach of this Lease by Tenant. If the trustee or receiver appointed to serve during a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization, insolvency or similar action elects to reject Tenants unexpired Lease, the trustee or receiver shall notify Landlord in writing of its election within thirty (30) days after an order for relief in a liquidation action or within thirty (30) days after the commencement of any action.

Landlord for all actual pecuniary loss resulting from Tenants breach of this Lease, including any attorneys fees and costs incurred by Landlord as a result of such breach and/or the bankruptcy proceedings instituted by or against Tenant, and shall provide adequate assurance of future performance under the Lease to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Adequate assurance of future performance, as used herein, includes, but shall not be limited to (1) assurance of source and payment of Rent and other consideration due under this Lease and (ii) assurance that the assumption or assignment of this Lease will not breach any provision, such as radius, location, use or exclusivity provisions in any other lease of space within the Project.
Nothing contained in this Paragraph 15.3 shall affect the right of Landlord to refuse to accept an assignment upon commencement of or in connection with a bankruptcy, liquidation, reorganization or insolvency action or an assignment of Tenant for the benefit of creditors or other similar act. Nothing contained in this Lease shall be construed as giving or granting or creating equity in the Premises to Tenant. In no event shall the leasehold estate under this Lease, or any interest therein, be assigned by voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding without the prior written consent of Landlord. In no event shall this Lease or any rights or privileges hereunder be an asset of Tenant under any bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization proceedings.
No Bar of Action(s). Landlord may sue periodically to recover damages during the period corresponding to the remainder of the Lease Term, and no action for damages shall bar a later action for damages subsequently accruing.
Landlord Cure. If Tenant fails to perform any obligation under this Lease, Landlord shall have the option to do so after five (5) days written notice to Tenant. All of Landlords expenditures to correct the default shall be reimbursed by Tenant on demand together with interest at the interest rate provided in Paragraph 25.2 from the date of expenditure until repaid. Such action by Landlord shall not waive any other remedies available to Landlord because of the default.
No Exclusion. The foregoing remedies shall be in addition to and shall not exclude any other remedy available to Landlord at law or in equity.
16. Landlord Default.
Landlord shall be in default under this Lease if it shall fail to comply with any term, provision or covenant of this Lease and shall not cure such failure within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof to Landlord unless such cure cannot reasonably be accomplished within such thirty (30)-day period, then Landlord shall not be in default under this Lease if it shall commence such performance within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently pursues the same to completion, if Landlord shall default in the performance of any of its obligations under this Lease (after notice and opportunity to cure as provided herein), Tenant may pursue any remedies available to it under the law and this Lease, provided that (i) Tenant shall use reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages; (ii) in no event shall Landlord be liable for punitive damages, lost profits, business interruption, speculative, consequential or other such damages; and (iii) in recognition that Landlord must receive timely payments of Rent and operate the Project, Tenant shall have no right of self-help to perform repairs or any other obligation of Landlord, and shall have no right to withhold, set-off, or abate Rent.

If a month-to-month tenancy results from a holdover by Tenant under this Paragraph 17.3, the tenancy shall be terminable by either Landlord or Tenant upon thirty (30) days prior written notice from by one party to the other party. Tenant waives any notice that would otherwise be provided by law with respect to a month-to-month tenancy.

From time to time when the FRL Space or any portion thereof becomes Available for lease to third parties during the FRL Period, Landlord shall notify Tenant of such fact, and the material terms on which Landlord is prepared to lease the FRL Space to Tenant (Landlords Notice of Availability). The rental rate, proposed escalations, tenant improvement allowance and free rent concession, for the FRL Space shall reflect the prevailing market rate as reasonably determined by Landlord. If Tenant wishes to exercise Tenants right of first offer with respect to the space described in Landlords Notice of Availability, then within ten (10) business days of delivery of Landlords Notice of Availability to Tenant, Tenant shall deliver notice to Landlord of Tenants irrevocable exercise of its right of first offer with respect to the entire space described in Landlords Notice of Availability on the terms contained in such notice (Tenants Notice of Acceptance).

If Tenant does not elect to add the FRL Space, then Landlord may lease the FRL Space to a third party or take it off the market for any reason whatsoever; provided that, if Landlord does not enter into a binding lease with any other third party for the FRL Space reflected in Landlords Notice of Availability within six (6) months after the deadline by which Tenant was to have provided Tenants Notice of Acceptance, Tenants First Right to Lease hereunder shall be reinstated and the procedures described above shall again be followed. As used herein, Available shall mean that the FRL Space is, or is expected by Landlord to become, vacant, unencumbered and free and clear of all claims and rights of other tenants or other third parties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the FRL Space shall not be deemed Available if, as to all or any portion thereof, there is an outstanding lease, lease option, or option or other right of extension, renewal, expansion, first refusal, first negotiation, or similar or other right, pursuant to any lease or written agreement, or if any then-existing tenant or occupant desires to renew or extend its lease as to any or all of such space, whether or not pursuant to an existing right or option. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord may give Landlords Notice of Availability at any time during the Term. Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit or prevent Landlord from marketing, discussing or negotiating with any other party for a lease of, or rights of any nature as to, any part of the FRL Space, provided that any of the foregoing activities by Landlord shall be subject to Tenants rights hereunder. If Tenant timely exercises Tenants right to lease the FRL Space as set forth herein, Landlord and Tenant shall within fifteen (15) days thereafter execute a separate lease for such FRL Space upon the terms and conditions as set forth in Landlords Notice of Availability and this Paragraph 26. Tenant shall commence payment of
|Rent for the FRL Space, and the term of the FRL Space shall commence upon the date of delivery of the FRL Space to Tenant (the First Offer Commencement Date) and terminate on the date set forth in Landlords Notice of Availability; provided that, Tenant acknowledges that its exercise of its Early Termination Option shall have no effect on its lease as to the FRL Space, which shall continue in full force and effect. Tenants First Right to Lease the FRL Space is subject to Tenant not being in default under the Lease when Landlord would otherwise be required to provide Landlords Notice of Availability, and when Tenants Notice of Acceptance is given.|

cooperate to prepare a final cost accounting for the Tenant Improvements, the allocation and payment of the Tenant Improvement Allowance, and those costs which Tenant is obligated hereunder to pay, and an appropriate reconciliation shall be made if either party has overpaid its portion of all such costs.

b. Any Change Orders to the approved Working Drawings requested by Landlord; or
c. Any breach or default by Landlord in the performance of Landlords obligations under the Lease or Work Letter; then the date of Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements shall be deemed to be the day that Tenant Improvements would have been Substantially Completed absent any such Landlord Delay.

If the Tenant Improvements are delayed from being Substantially Completed due to any Landlord Delay, then the Work Schedule shall be extended to account for such delay.
16. Commencement Date. Tenant acknowledges that Commencement Date and Tenants obligation to pay Rent as required under the Lease shall commence on the required Commencement Date set forth therein, whether or not Tenant has completed all or any portions of the Tenant Improvements, and whether or not Tenant has obtained a certificate of occupancy therefor or has commenced business operations therefrom.

STATEMENT OF THE GUARANTY
1. The aforementioned recitals are true and correct.
2. Guarantor absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees, without deduction by reason of set-off, defense or counterclaim, to Landlord and its successors and assigns, and as primary obligator, the full, punctual, and complete payment of all rent and other sums to be paid to Landlord under the Lease, including all attorneys fees, costs and expenses of collection incurred by Landlord in enforcing its rights and remedies under the Lease and this Guaranty, and together with the full, punctual, and complete discharge and performance of each and every other term, covenant, obligation and warranty contained in the Lease on Tenants part to be kept, performed or observed. This Guaranty is of a continuing nature and shall remain in full force and effect until all the terms, covenants, conditions, and agreements contained in the Lease are fully performed and observed. The fact that at any time or from time to time the obligations may he increased or reduced shall not release or discharge the obligations of Guarantor with respect to this Guaranty. This Guaranty shall not be discharged by assignment of the Lease. If any payment made by Tenant in satisfaction of any obligation of Tenant is returned by Landlord as a result of court order or directive or requirement of law, in connection with any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, or receivership proceeding, or otherwise, that obligation shall, for purposes of this Guaranty, be deemed to continue in existence to the extent of the payment returned as if the payment had never been made.
3. If Tenant shall at any time default in the payment of any rent or other sums due from Tenant under the Lease or in the performance or observance of any of the other terms, covenants, obligations and warranties in the Lease on Tenants part to be kept, performed or observed, then upon the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods set forth in the Lease, Guarantor will keep, perform and observe same, as the case may be, in the place and stead of Tenant. The Guarantor shall, upon the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods set forth in the Lease, immediately upon demand by Landlord and without presentment, protest, notice of protest, notice of non-payment, notice of intention to accelerate the maturity, notice of acceleration of maturity or any other notice whatsoever, pay in lawful money of the United States of America, the amount due on the obligations to Landlord at Landlords address as set forth therein. Upon the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods set forth in the Lease, such demand(s) may be made at any time coincident with or after the time for payment of all or part of the obligations and may be made from time to time with respect to the same or different items of obligations. Such demand shall be deemed made, given and received in accordance with the notice provisions hereof.
4. Any act of Landlord, or its successors or assigns, consisting of a waiver of any of the terms or conditions of the Lease, or the giving of any consent to any manner or thing relating thereto, or the granting of any indulgences, renewals, extensions of time, releases, and discharges to Tenant or any other guarantor, or the taking or releasing of any security for payment and performance of the Tenants obligations under the Lease, or the refraining from perfecting any interest in any security granted in connection with the Lease or any other guarantee, may be done without notice to or consent from Guarantor and without releasing Guarantor from any of its obligations hereunder.
5. The obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall not be released by Landlords receipt, application, release or impairment of any security or other collateral given for the performance and observance of any covenant or condition in the Lease contained on Tenants part to be performed or observed, nor by any modification thereof, nor any release or discharge of any other guarantor, regardless of whether Guarantor consents thereto or receives notice thereof.
6. The liabilities and obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall not be reduced, discharged, or released because or by reason of any existing or future offset, claim or defense of Tenant or any other party against Landlord or against payment of the obligations, whether such offset, claim or defense arises in connection with the obligations or otherwise.
7. The liability of Guarantor hereunder shall in no way be affected by (a) the release or discharge of Tenant in any receivership, bankruptcy or other proceeding; (b) the impairment, limitation or modification of any liability to Landlord of Tenant or the estate of Tenant in bankruptcy, or of any remedy for the enforcement of Tenants liability under the Lease or resulting from the operation of any present or future provision of federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency laws or other statute or from the decision in any court; (c) the rejection or disaffirmance of the Lease in any bankruptcy, insolvency, or similar proceeding; (d) the assignment, transfer, or encumbrance of all or any portion
of the Tenants interest in the Lease, the subletting of all or any portion of the Premises, or the granting to any third party of any rights of occupancy of all or any portion of the Premises; (e) any disability or other defense of Tenant; (f) the cessation from any cause whatsoever of the liability of Tenant (g) the exercise or election by Landlord of any of its rights or remedies reserved under the Lease or by law; or (h) any extension, renewal, amendment, expansion, or termination of the Lease. Guarantor hereby waives notice of the acceptance of this Guaranty, notice of any event of default under the Lease, opportunity to cure any event of default under the Lease, and proof of notice or demand to Tenant relating to any event of default. Guarantor hereby further waives any and all defenses, rights of subrogation, reimbursement, indemnification, contribution, and any other rights and defenses that are or may become available to it arising from performance by the Guarantor under this Guaranty, including without limitation those pursuant to the provisions of California Civil Code Sections 2787 through 2855, inclusive.
8. In the event that pursuant to any insolvency, bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership or other debtor relief law or any judgment, order or decision thereunder, Landlord must rescind or restore any payment or any part thereof received by Landlord in satisfaction of the obligations, any prior release or discharge from the terms of this Guaranty given to Guarantor by Landlord shall be without effect and this Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect. It is the intention of Tenant and Guarantor that Guarantors obligations hereunder shall not be discharged except by Guarantors performance of such obligations and then only to the extent of performance.
9. Guarantor further agrees that it may be joined in any action against Tenant in connection with the said obligations of Tenant and recovery may be had against Guarantor in any such action. Landlord may enforce the obligations of Guarantor hereunder, at its sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, and exercise its rights under this Guaranty and pursue any other security or apply any other collateral it may hold, either prior to, concurrently with, or after, the exercise of its remedies for default against Tenant and/or its successors, assigns, and/or other guarantors under the Lease, and Guarantor hereby waives all right to assert or plead at any time any and all surety or other defenses in the nature thereof including, without limitation, any provision of law requiring Landlord to proceed first or exhaust its recourse against Tenant or any other guarantor. This is a guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection. It shall not be necessary for Landlord (and Guarantor hereby waives any rights which Guarantor may have to require Landlord), in order to enforce the obligations of Guarantor hereunder, first to (i) institute suit or exhaust its remedies against Tenant or any other person.
10. Until all the covenants and conditions in the Lease on Tenants part to be performed and observed, are fully performed and observed, including without limitation the payment of all rent and other sums required to be paid by Tenant to Landlord, Guarantor (a) shall have no right of subrogation against Tenant by reason of any payments or acts of performance by Guarantor hereunder; and (b) subordinates any liability or indebtedness of Tenant now or hereafter held by Guarantor to the obligations of Tenant to Landlord under the Lease. Guarantor waives any defense to payment under this Guaranty based on any argument that Landlords realization on any other security or collateral for the Lease has impaired Guarantors subrogation rights. Guarantor acknowledges that it may seek to
obtain a separate reimbursement agreement from the Tenant covering amounts paid by Guarantor under this Guaranty, and the presence or absence of such a reimbursement agreement shall have no effect on Guarantors obligations under this Guaranty.
11. Upon written request of Landlord, Guarantor shall furnish to Landlord, within fifteen (15) business days following receipt of Landlords written request, and not more frequently than twice per calendar year, Guarantors most current financial statements (including balance sheet and income statement) for the two (2) years prior to the current financial statements year. Such statements shall be prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (or, if such is the normal practice of Guarantor, International Financial Reporting Standards), and, only if such is the normal practice of Guarantor, shall be audited by an independent certified public accountant; otherwise, unaudited statements certified to be true and correct by Guarantors chief financial officer shall be acceptable. Landlord may make such financial statements available to Landlords lender or purchaser of the Project (as defined in the Lease) or any portion thereof containing the Premises. Landlord shall otherwise keep such financial statements confidential and shall require any such prospective lender or purchaser to do the same.
12. This Guaranty shall apply to the Lease, any extension, renewal, modification, replacement, or amendment thereof, and to any expansion or contraction of the premises demised thereby, and to any assignment, other transfer, subletting or other tenancy thereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, or to any holdover term following the term granted under the Lease or any extension or renewal thereof.
13. In the event this Guaranty shall be held ineffective or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction or in the event of any limitation of Guarantors liability hereunder, other than as expressly provided herein, then Guarantor shall be deemed to be a tenant under the Lease with the same force and effect as if Guarantor were expressly named as a joint and several tenant therein with respect to the obligations of Tenant thereunder hereby guaranteed.
14. If Landlord takes any action or participates in any proceeding to enforce the Lease or this Guaranty, or to protect Landlords rights hereunder or thereunder (including, but not limited to, bankruptcy, appellate, and post-judgment proceedings), or shall be made a party to any action or proceeding involving Tenant and/or Guarantor, whether or not such action or proceeding is commenced prior to or after expiration or termination of the Lease or this Guaranty, the undersigned shall pay to Landlord all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees, incurred or expended by Landlord in connection therewith.
15. Subject to any applicable statute of limitations, no delay on the part of Landlord in the exercising any right hereunder or under the Lease shall operate as a waiver of such right or of any other right of Landlord under the Lease or hereunder, nor shall any delay, omission or waiver on any one occasion be deemed a bar to or a waiver of the same or any other right on any future occasion.
16. If there is more than one Guarantor, the term Guarantor, as used herein, shall include all of them; each and every provision of this Guaranty shall be binding on each and every one of the
undersigned; they shall be jointly and severally liable hereunder; and Landlord shall have the right to join one or all of them in any proceeding or to proceed against them in any order. This Guaranty is in addition to and not in substitution for any other guarantees held or which may hereafter be held by Landlord, and Guarantor is jointly and severally liable with all such other guarantors for payment of the amounts hereby guaranteed.
17. This instrument constitutes the entire agreement between Landlord and Guarantor with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding all prior oral or written agreements or understandings with respect thereto and may not be changed, modified, discharged or terminated orally or in any manner other than by an agreement in writing signed by Guarantor and Landlord.
18. This Guaranty shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without reference to any principles of conflict of laws. Venue for all actions or proceedings relating to or arising out of this Guaranty shall be in the County in which the premises are located. Guarantor hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such state or federal court in such county for such purposes and agrees that any notice, complaint or legal process so delivered shall constitute adequate notice and service of process for all purposes and shall subject Guarantor to the jurisdiction of such Court for purposes of adjudicating any matter related to this Guaranty.
19. If any provision (or portion or application of any provision) of this Guaranty is found to be invalid or inconsistent with applicable law then that provision (or the smallest portion or narrowest application of that provision that can be removed to render the provision valid) shall be severed from this Guaranty and the remainder of this Guaranty and the application of that provision to all circumstances where its application is valid shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect.
20. Notice hereunder shall be in writing and shall be effective upon personal service or five (5) days after deposit thereof in the United States Mail, registered or certified delivery, return receipt requested, to the other party at its above address, except that under no circumstances shall Landlord be obligated to give Guarantor any notice not specifically required to be given by Landlord pursuant to this Guaranty. Either party may by notice given as aforesaid designate a different address for notice purposes.
21. The benefits of this Guaranty shall inure to the successors and assigns of Landlord and shall be binding upon the successors, assigns, heirs, and legal and personal representatives of the undersigned. For purposes of this Guaranty, the word Tenant shall also include the successors and assigns of Tenant. This paragraph shall not affect the restrictions relating to assignment, subletting, and other transfers by Tenant as set out in the Lease.
22. Each of Guarantor and Landlord acknowledges that the contents of the Lease and this Guaranty are confidential information. Each of Guarantor and Landlord agrees to keep the Lease and Guaranty strictly confidential and shall not disclose such confidential information to any person or entity other than to such partys financial, legal, and space planning consultants, or as may be required by court order or Applicable Laws (as defined in the Lease).
