In the event the Purchase Option is assigned to Assignee under the Conditional Assignment with Landlord’s written consent thereto pursuant to Section 4(c), but Assignee thereafter is unable to consummate the WI/Cloud Closing, then Assignor shall have as its sole and exclusive remedy the remedy set forth in Section 6(b) below and immediately upon request, Assignee shall assign the Purchase Option back to Assignor.

6.Default and Remedies.
(a)In the event of: (i) a material breach of the Purchase Option or this Agreement by Assignor prior to the assignment of the Purchase Option to Assignee, or (ii) a failure of Assignor to execute the Conditional Assignment, following satisfaction of the Exercise Conditions and the nCino Assignment Conditions, or (iii) if following execution of the Conditional Assignment by Assignor and Assignee pursuant to Section 3 and Assignee’s delivery of the Financial Assurance to Landlord pursuant to Section 4(a), Assignor shall fail to deliver the Conditional Assignment to Landlord pursuant to Section 4(b) above, then in each case, Assignee shall have as its sole and exclusive remedies the following: (A) the right to terminate this Agreement and receive a return of the Cloud Deposit and to recover from Assignor all out of pocket expenses incurred by Assignee in connection with the negotiation and preparation of the LOI, the negotiation and preparation of this Agreement, preparation for consummation of the assignment of the Purchase Option and closing thereunder, and any other expenses incurred by Assignee as the result of (i), (ii) and (iii) above but in any event such recovery shall not exceed $500,000.00, and (B) the right to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by Assignee in connection with any of the foregoing.
(b) (i) In the event of a material breach of this Agreement by Assignee, or (ii) if the nCino Assignment Conditions shall not be satisfied by Assignee after the Exercise Conditions and Cloud Assignment Conditions shall have been satisfied, or (iii) if, after the nCino Assignment Conditions and Cloud Assignment Conditions shall have been satisfied, the Property shall not be conveyed to Assignee no later than December 22, 2020, for any reasons other than (A) a Landlord default, as described in the third sentence of Section 33.04(B) of the Lease, (B) Landlord’s refusal to consent to the Conditional Assignment upon Landlord’s receipt of the deliveries pursuant to Sections 4(a) and 4(b) above, (C) a failure of Assignor to execute and deliver the Conditional Assignment upon satisfaction of the nCino Assignment Conditions, or (D) after execution of the Conditional Assignment by Assignor and Assignee, Assignor shall refuse to deliver the

The parties hereto agree that in the event of a default by Assignee the actual damages thereby incurred by Assignor would be difficult to measure and that the receipt of the Cloud Deposit by Assignor from the Escrow Agent would in such circumstances represent reasonable compensation to Assignor on account thereof.
(c)In the event of a breach of this Agreement by either party, including without limitation a breach of any representation contained herein and such breach is not discovered by a non-breaching party until after the WI/Cloud Closing under the Purchase Option, the non-breaching party shall provide to the breaching party notice of such breach and a period of time, not to exceed thirty (30) days to cure such breach. In the event the breach is not cured within the thirty (30) day period, then the non-breaching party shall have the right to recover from the breaching party all actual out-of-pocket expenses, including without limitation attorneys’ fees, incurred by the non-breaching party due to the breach by the breaching party.
