Tenant shall pay all Other Taxes monthly or otherwise when due, whether collected by Landlord or collected directly by the applicable governmental agency; if applicable Law requires Landlord to collect any Other Taxes, such Other Taxes shall be payable to Landlord as Additional Rent.
(v) Tenants Share means the rentable square footage of the Premises divided by the rentable square footage of the Building on the date of calculation, which on the date of this Lease is stipulated to be 4.67%.
(b) Commencing on the Fixed Rent Start Date and continuing thereafter during the Term, Tenant shall pay to Landlord in advance on a monthly basis, payable pursuant to Section 5(c) below, Tenants Share of Operating Expenses. If the Building is operated as part of a complex of buildings or in conjunction with other buildings or parcels of land, then Landlord may prorate the common expenses and costs with respect to each such building or parcel of land in such manner as Landlord, in its sole but reasonable judgment, shall determine. Landlord shall calculate Operating Expenses using generally accepted accounting principles, and may allocate certain categories of Operating Expenses to the applicable tenants on a commercially reasonable basis.
(c) For each calendar year (or portion thereof) for which Tenant has an obligation to pay any Operating Expenses, Landlord shall send to Tenant a statement of the monthly amount of projected Operating Expenses due from Tenant for such calendar year (Estimated Operating Expenses), and Tenant shall pay to Landlord such monthly amount of Estimated Operating Expenses as provided in Section 5(b). without further notice, demand, setoff, deduction, or counterclaim. As soon as administratively available after each calendar year, Landlord shall send to Tenant a reconciliation statement of the actual Operating Expenses for the prior calendar year (Reconciliation Statement). Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Tenant with a Reconciliation Statement with 4 months after the end of each applicable calendar year; provided, however, if Landlord does not provide such statements within such period, Landlord shall not have been deemed to waive its right to collect any amounts as Additional Rent unless Landlord fails to provide such statement within 12 months after the end of the applicable calendar year. If the amount actually paid by Tenant as Estimated Operating Expenses exceeds the amount due per the Reconciliation Statement, Tenant shall receive a credit in an amount equal to the overpayment, which credit shall be applied towards future Rent until fully credited. If the credit exceeds the aggregate future Rent owed by Tenant, and there is no Event of Default, Landlord shall pay the excess amount to Tenant within 60 days after delivery of the Reconciliation Statement. If Landlord has undercharged Tenant, then Landlord shall either send Tenant an invoice setting forth the additional amount due or indicate the amount due as part of the Reconciliation Statement, which amount shall be paid in full by Tenant within 60 days after receipt of such invoice.
(d) If, during the Term, less than 95% of the rentable area of the Building is or was occupied by tenants, Project Expenses shall be deemed for such year to be an amount equal to the costs that would have been incurred had the occupancy of the Building been 95% throughout such year, as reasonably determined by Landlord and taking into account that certain expenses fluctuate with the Buildings occupancy level (e.g., Janitorial Expenses) and certain expenses do not so fluctuate (e.g., landscaping). In addition, if Landlord is not obligated or otherwise does not offer to furnish an item or a service to a particular tenant or portion of the Building (e.g., if a tenant separately contracts with an office cleaning firm to clean such tenants premises) and the cost of such item or service would otherwise be included in Project Expenses, Landlord shall equitably adjust the Project Expenses so the cost of the item or service is shared only by tenants actually receiving such item or service. All payment calculations under this Section shall be prorated for any partial calendar years during the Term and all calculations shall be based upon Project Expenses as grossed-up in accordance with the terms of this Lease. Tenants obligations under this Section shall survive the Expiration Date.
(e) If Landlord or any affiliate of Landlord has elected to qualify as a real estate investment trust (REIT), any service required or permitted to be performed by Landlord pursuant to this Lease, the charge or cost of which may be treated as impermissible tenant service income under the laws governing a REIT, may be performed by an independent contractor of Landlord, Landlords property manager, or a taxable REIT subsidiary that is affiliated with either Landlord or Landlords property manager (each, a Service Provider). If Tenant is subject to a charge under this Lease for any such service, then at Landlords direction Tenant shall pay the charge for such service either to Landlord for further payment to the Service Provider or directly to the Service Provider and, in either case: (a) Landlord shall credit such payment against any charge for such service made by Landlord to Tenant under this Lease; and (b) Tenants payment of the Service Provider shall not relieve Landlord from any obligation under this Lease concerning the provisions of such services.
(f) Landlord shall maintain in a safe and orderly manner all of its records pertaining to the Operating Expenses payable pursuant to this Lease in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Provided there is no outstanding uncured monetary default by Tenant under this Lease, Tenant shall have the right, at its sole cost and expense, to cause Landlords records related to a Reconciliation Statement to be audited provided: (i) Tenant provides notice of its intent to audit such Reconciliation Statement within 6 months after receipt of the Reconciliation Statement; (ii) the audit is performed by a certified public accountant that has not been retained on a contingency basis or other basis where its compensation relates to the cost savings of Tenant; (iii) any such audit may not occur more frequently than once during each 12-month period of the Term, nor apply to any year prior to the year of the then-current Reconciliation Statement being reviewed; (iv) the audit is completed within three (3) months after the date that Landlord makes all of the necessary and applicable records available to Tenant or Tenants auditor; (v) the contents of Landlords records shall be kept confidential by Tenant, its auditor, and its other professional advisors, other than as required by applicable Law or as required to enforce the terms of this Lease, and if requested by Landlord, Tenant and its auditor shall execute Landlords standard confidentiality agreement in form reasonably acceptable to Tenant as a condition to Tenants audit rights under this paragraph; and (vi) if Tenants auditor determines that an overpayment is due Tenant, Tenants auditor shall produce a detailed report addressed to both Landlord and Tenant, which report shall be delivered within 30 days after Tenants auditors completion of the audit. During completion of
Tenants audit, Tenant shall nonetheless timely pay all of Tenants Share of Operating Expenses without setoff or deduction (except as expressly provided by this Lease). If Tenants audit report discloses any discrepancy, Landlord and Tenant shall use good faith efforts to resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to reach agreement within 30 days after Landlords receipt of the audit report, Tenant shall have the right to refer the matter to a mutually acceptable independent certified public accountant (such approval by either party not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), who shall work in good faith with Landlord and Tenant to resolve the discrepancy; provided if Tenant does not do so within such 30-day period (which period shall be extended on a day-for-day basis for each day Landlord fails to approve Tenants reasonable selection of an accountant), Landlords calculations and the Reconciliation Statement at issue shall be deemed final and accepted by Tenant. The fees and costs of such independent accountant to which such dispute is referred shall be borne by the unsuccessful party and shall be shared pro rata to the extent each party is unsuccessful as determined by such independent certified public accountant, whose decision shall be final and binding. Within 60 days after resolution of the dispute, whether by agreement of the parties or a final decision of an independent accountant, Landlord shall pay or credit to Tenant, or Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as the case may be, all unpaid Operating Expenses due and owing.
(a) Commencing on the Commencement Date, and continuing throughout the Term, Tenant shall pay for utility services as follows without setoff, deduction, or counterclaim (except as otherwise set forth herein): (i) Tenant shall pay directly to the applicable utility service provider for any utilities that are separately metered (not submetered) to the Premises; (ii) Tenant shall pay Landlord for any utilities serving the Premises that are separately submetered based upon Tenants submetered usage without markup (Landlord shall be responsible for any maintenance and replacement costs associated with such submeters; the costs of which may be included in Operating Expenses); and (iii) Tenant shall pay Landlord for Tenants Share of Project Utility Costs, as set forth in Section 5 above. Project Utility Costs means the total cost for all utilities serving the Project, excluding the costs of utilities that are directly metered or submetered to Building tenants or paid separately by such tenants. Notwithstanding anythingto the contrary in this Lease, Landlord shall have the right to install meters, submeters, or other energy-reducing systems in the Premises at any time to measure any or all utilities serving the Premises, the costs of which shall be included in Project Expenses. For those utilities set forth in subsection (i) above, Tenant shall pay the applicable utility provider directly for such utilities. For those utilities set forth in subsection (ii) above, Landlord shall invoice Tenant for such utilities as Additional Rent (payable within 20 days after receipt of an invoice therefor). For those utilities set forth in subsection (iii) above, Landlord shall have the right to either invoice Tenant for such utilities as Additional Rent (payable within 20 days after receipt of an invoice therefor), or together with Operating Expenses. Landlord shall have the right to reasonably estimate the utility charge, which estimated amount shall be payable to Landlord within 60 days after receipt of an invoice therefor and may be included along with the invoice for Project Expenses, provided Landlord shall be required to reconcile on an annual basis based on utility invoices received for such period. The cost of utilities payable by Tenant under this Section shall include all applicable taxes and Landlords then-current charges for reading the applicable meters, provided Landlord shall have the right to engage a third party to read the submeters, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for both the utilities consumed as evidenced by the meters plus the costs for reading the meters within 60 days after receipt of an invoice therefor. Tenant shall pay such rates as Landlord may establish from time to time, which shall not be in excess of any applicable rates chargeable by Law, or in excess of the general service rate or other such rate that would apply to Tenants consumption if charged by the utility or municipality serving the Building or general area in which the Building is located. If Tenant fails to pay timely any direct-metered utility charges from the applicable utility provider, Landlord shall have the right but not the obligation to pay such charges on Tenants behalf and bill Tenant for such costs plus the Administrative Fee (as defined in Section 17). which amount shall be payable to Landlord as Additional Rent within 60 days after receipt of an invoice therefor. Tenant shall at all times comply with the rules, regulations, terms, policies, and conditions applicable to the service, equipment, wiring, and requirements of the utility supplying electricity to the Building.
(b) For any separately metered utilities, Landlord is hereby authorized to request and obtain, on behalf of Tenant, Tenants utility consumption data from the applicable utility provider for informational purposes and to enable Landlord to obtain full building Energy Star scoring for the Building. Landlord shall have the right to shut down the Building systems (including electricity and HVAC systems) for required maintenance, safety inspections, or any other reason, including without limitation in cases of emergency. Landlord shall provide Tenant, whenever reasonably practicable, advanced notice of any service slowdowns, interruptions or stoppages and, to the extent any equipment being maintained, repaired, replaced or improved is located within the Premises, shall use its
commercially reasonable efforts (subject to union and governmental requirements) to schedule such work outside of Business Hours, except in the case of emergencies. Landlord shall not be liable for any interruption in providing any utility that Landlord is obligated to provide under this Lease, unless such interruption or delay: (i) renders the Premises or any material portion thereof untenantable for the normal conduct of Tenants business at the Premises and Tenant has ceased using such untenantable portion, provided Tenant shall first endeavor to use any generator that serves the Premises or of which Tenant has the beneficial use; (ii) results from Landlords negligence or willful misconduct or is in Landlords control to remediate; and (iii) extends for a period longer than 3 consecutive business days, in which case, Tenants obligation to pay Fixed Rent and Project Expenses shall be abated with respect to the untenantable portion of the Premises that Tenant has ceased using for the period beginning on the 4th consecutive business day after such conditions are met and ending on the earlier of: (A) the date Tenant recommences using the Premises or the applicable portion thereof; or (B) the date on which the service(s) is substantially restored. The rental abatement described above shall be Tenants sole remedy in the event of a utility interruption, and Tenant hereby waives any other rights against Landlord in connection therewith. Landlord shall have the right to change the utility providers to the Project at any time. In the event of a casualty or condemnation affecting the Building and/or the Premises, the terms of Sections 14 and 15; respectively, shall control over the provisions of this Section.
(c) If Landlord reasonably determines that: (i) Tenant exceeds the design conditions for the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system serving the Premises, introduces into the Premises equipment that overloads such system, or causes such system to not adequately perform its proper functions; or (ii) the heavy concentration of personnel, motors, machines, or equipment used in the Premises, including telephone and computer equipment, or any other condition in the Premises caused by Tenant (for example, more than one shift per day or 24-hour use of the Premises), adversely affects the temperature or humidity otherwise maintained by such system, then Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing and Tenant shall have 20 days to remedy the situation to Landlords reasonable satisfaction. Landlord represents that the use of the Premises for general office use during Business Hours consistent with the use by other office tenants in the Building will not cause any of the adverse conditions set forth in the preceding sentence nor permit Landlord to have any right to install additional equipment at Tenants cost. Landlord shall notify Tenant at the time of approval of the Tenants plans for the Leasehold Improvements whether any component of the Leasehold Improvements would exceed the design conditions for the HVAC system serving the Premises or would adversely affect the temperature or humidity otherwise maintained by such system, failing which Landlord shall have no rights under clause (i) above with respect to the initial Leasehold Improvements. If Tenant fails to timely remedy the situation to Landlords reasonable satisfaction, Landlord shall have the right to install one or more supplemental air conditioning units in the Premises with the cost thereof, including the cost of installation, operation and maintenance, being payable by Tenant to Landlord within 60 days after Landlords written demand. Tenant shall not change or adjust any closed or sealed thermostat or other element of the HVAC system serving the Premises without Landlords express prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably conditioned, withheld, or delayed. Landlord may install and operate meters or any other reasonable system for monitoring or estimating any services or utilities used by Tenant in excess of those required to be provided by Landlord (including a system for Landlords engineer reasonably to estimate any such excess usage). If such system indicates materially excess services or utilities, Tenant shall pay Landlords reasonable charges for installing and operating such system and any supplementary air conditioning, ventilation, heat, electrical, or other systems or equipment (or adjustments or modifications to the existing Building systems and equipment), and Landlords reasonable charges for such amount of excess services or utilities used by Tenant. All supplemental HVAC systems and equipment serving the Premises (including without limitation Tenants Supplemental HVAC, as defined in Section 11(a) below) shall be separately metered to the Premises at Tenants cost, and Tenant shall be solely responsible for all electricity registered by, and the maintenance and replacement of, such meters. Landlord has no obligation to keep cool any of Tenants information technology equipment that is placed together in one room, on a rack, or in any similar manner (IT Equipment), and Tenant waives any claim against Landlord in connection with Tenants IT Equipment. Landlord shall have the option to require that the computer room and/or information technology closet in the Premises shall be separately submetered at Tenants expense (subject to application of the Improvement Allowance), and Tenant shall pay Landlord for all electricity registered in such submeter. Within 1 month after written request, Tenant shall provide to Landlord electrical load information reasonably requested by Landlord with respect to any computer room and/or information technology closet in the Premises.
7. LANDLORD SERVICES.
(a) Subject to Section 5 and Section 6, Landlord shall provide the following to the Premises during the Term: (i) HVAC service in accordance with the following temperature specifications during Business Hours: 72 degrees at 50% relative humidity; provided HVAC service to the Premises on Saturdays will be provided only upon Tenants prior request to Landlord received no later than noon on the preceding business day; (ii) electricity for lighting and standard office equipment for comparable buildings in the market in which the Project is located; (iii) water, sewer, and, to the extent applicable to the Building, gas, oil, and steam service; (iv) security as reasonably determined by Landlord for the Building and Common Areas on a 24/7 basis; and (v) cleaning services meeting the minimum specifications set forth in Exhibit D attached hereto.

(b) Landlord shall not be obligated to furnish any services, supplies, or utilities other than as set forth in this Lease; provided, however, upon Tenants prior request sent in accordance with Section 25(p) below, Landlord may furnish additional services, supplies, or utilities, in which case Tenant shall pay to Landlord, immediately upon demand, Landlords then-current charge for such additional services, supplies, or utilities, or Tenants pro rata share thereof, if applicable, as reasonably determined by Landlord. Landlords current rate for HVAC service outside of Business Hours requested with at least 24 hours prior notice (or by noon for weekend service) is the following, with a 2-hour minimum if the service does not commence immediately following the end of a days Business Hours: $92.00 per hour, per floor for cooling ($56.00 per hour, per floor for multi-floor cooling), and $57.00 per hour for heating.
8. USE; SIGNS; PARKING; COMMON AREAS.
(a) Tenant shall use the Premises for general office use (non-medical) befitting a class A office building and storage incidental thereto, and for no other purpose (Permitted Use). Tenants use of the Premises for the Permitted Use shall be subject to all applicable Laws, and to all reasonable requirements of the insurers of the Building. Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord, for informational purposes only, that Tenants current NAICS Code is set forth in Section 1 hereof, provided the foregoing shall not be construed in any manner as a restriction on the Permitted Use. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Tenant shall not permit the Premises to be used primarily as a conference or meeting center.
(b) Landlord shall provide Tenant with Building-standard identification signage on any Building lobby directories and at the main entrance to the Premises, and directional signage at the elevator lobbies on any multi-tenant floors, the costs of which shall be paid for by Landlord for the originally named Tenant, otherwise by Tenant as Additional Rent within 10 days after written demand. Tenant shall not place, erect, or maintain any signs at the Premises, the Building, or the Project that are visible from outside of the Premises. Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided all of the Pylon Signage Conditions are fully satisfied, Tenant shall have the nonexclusive right to install a panel sign (Panel) on the existing Pylon sign of the Building (to the extent it exists) (Pylon Sign), subject to applicable Laws (including without limitation all necessary local governmental approvals) and satisfaction of all of the following terms and conditions: (i) the size and location and Tenants specifications and design of the Panel shall be subject to Landlords prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably conditioned, withheld or delayed, and generally consistent with the aesthetic standards of the Building; (ii) Landlord shall obtain the Panel on Tenants behalf, at Tenants sole cost and expense (subject to application of the Improvement Allowance); (iii) Landlord shall install the Panel, at Tenants sole and expense; (iv) Landlord shall maintain and repair the Pylon Sign, the costs of which shall be proportionately paid by the tenants having panel signs on such Pylon Sign; (v) Landlord shall maintain and repair the Panel, at Tenants sole cost and expense; (vi) if the Pylon Sign is illuminated, Tenant shall pay its proportionate share of the costs of such illumination (equitably allocated in Landlords reasonable determination); and (vii) if the Panel requires replacement, such replacement shall be at Tenants sole cost and expense. The Pylon Signage Conditions are that: (a) Tenant is occupying and paying full Rent on at least 1 full floor of the Building; and (b) this Lease is in full force and effect. From and after the Surrender Date (as defined in Section 18(a)), or immediately upon any of the Pylon Signage Conditions no longer being satisfied, Landlord shall have the right, at Tenants sole cost and expense, to remove the Panel and repair and restore the Pylon Sign to its prior existing condition. With respect to clause (i) above, Landlords determination and selection of the size, location, specifications, and design of the Panel may take into account the necessity to reserve or reallocate space for signage for existing and future tenants of the Building and in furtherance of the foregoing, Landlord shall have the right to require that the
Panel be replaced, at Landlords sole cost and expense, with a Panel of a different size, configuration, or design, from time to time, and the Panels placement on the Pylon Sign may be relocated on such sign by Landlord, from time to time. Tenant shall pay Landlord for all costs due under this paragraph as Additional Rent within 60 days after receipt of Landlords invoice therefor.
(c) Subject to the Building rules and regulations, Tenant shall have the nonexclusive right in common with others to use the Common Areas for their intended purposes. Tenant shall have the right throughout the Term to obtain 12 permits for unreserved, and 2 permits for reserved parking of standard-size automobiles of Tenant and its employees within the parking facility serving the Building: (i) by entering from time to time into the parking garage operators standard agreement covering the use of parking spaces in such garage; (ii) upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in such agreements; and (iii) subject to Tenants monthly payment to such operator of its fee for the right to such parking spaces (which fee shall be the then-current market rate). Tenant shall have the right to cause its employees to enter into such parking agreements and pay the parking fees directly to the parking operator. To the extent not included in the fee (if any) charged for parking in the parking facility for the Building, Tenant shall be solely liable for all parking taxes (if any) imposed by the applicable governmental authority with respect to Tenants parking spaces. If Landlord elects (in its sole and absolute discretion) to operate the parking facility, Tenant shall pay Landlord such taxes within 60 days after receipt of an invoice therefor and Landlord shall then remit such taxes to the applicable governmental authority. If the parking facility is not operated by Landlord, Tenant shall pay the operator such taxes and the operator shall then remit such taxes to the applicable governmental authority.
(d) Provided Landlord does not unreasonably and materially interfere with Tenants normal and customary business operations and to the extent that the Tenants Leasehold Improvements are not damaged, and Tenant is not denied the beneficial use of its Premises, Landlord shall have the right in its sole but reasonable discretion to, from time to time, construct, maintain, operate, repair, close, limit, take out of service, alter, change, and modify all or any part of the Common Areas. Landlord, Landlords agents, contractors, and utility service providers shall have the right to install, use, and maintain ducts, pipes, wiring, and conduits in and through the Premises provided such use does not cause the usable area of the Premises to be reduced beyond a de minimis amount. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule and conduct all such construction, maintenance, repairs, closures, alterations or changes so as to reasonably minimize any disruption or interference to Tenants business.
(e) Subject to Landlords security measures and Force Majeure Events (as defined in Section 25(g)), Landlord shall provide Tenant with access to the Building and, if applicable, passenger elevator service for use in common with others for access to and from the Premises 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, except during emergencies.

Landlord shall provide Tenant with access to the freight elevator(s) of the Building from time to time following receipt of Tenants prior request, and Tenant shall pay Landlords then-current charge for use of such freight elevators (current charge is $69 per hour for after Business Hours on weekdays and at all times on weekends, with a 4-hour minimum). If at any time during the Term Tenant does not have reasonable elevator access the Premises and such lack of access: (i) is a result of Landlords negligence or willful misconduct or is in Landlords control to remediate; and (ii) extends for a period longer than 3 consecutive business days, then in such case Tenants obligation to pay Fixed Rent and Project Expenses shall be abated for the period beginning on the 4th consecutive business day after such conditions are met and ending on the earlier of: (A) the date Tenant recommences using the Premises; or (B) the date on which reasonable elevator access to the Premises is restored. The rental abatement described above shall be Tenants sole remedy in the event Tenant does not have reasonable elevator access the Premises, and Tenant hereby waives any other rights against Landlord in connection therewith.
9. TENANTS ALTERATIONS.
(a) The construction of the initial Leasehold Improvements (as defined in Exhibit C) shall be governed by the terms of Exhibit C attached hereto and made a part hereof. Except for the Leasehold Improvements and as otherwise set forth below, Tenant shall not, and shall not permit any Tenant Agent to, cut, drill into, or secure any fixture, apparatus, or equipment, or make alterations, improvements, or physical additions of any kind to any part of the Premises (collectively, Alterations) without first obtaining the written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. If Landlord fails to respond to a request for consent to a proposed Alteration within 10 business days after Landlords receipt of such request, the request shall be deemed denied. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord fails to respond within such 10 business-day period, Tenant may
thereafter send to Landlord a second written requesting approval of the proposed Alteration, which request must set forth in bold and 14-point capitalized type on the first page thereof the following statement: SECOND AND FINAL REQUESTLANDLORD HAS 10 BUSINESS DAYS TO RESPOND PURSUANT TO SECTION 9 OF THE LEASE (Second Alteration Request). If Landlord then fails to respond to the Second Alteration Request within 10 business days after receipt thereof (Second Alteration Request Response Period), Landlord shall be deemed to have elected to consent to the proposed Alteration, provided Tenant shall otherwise have complied with all provisions of this Lease relating to such Alterations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord notifies Tenant in writing within the Second Alteration Request Response Period that Landlord requires additional time to review the request, then the Second Alteration Request Response Period shall be extended by an additional 10 business days. Tenant Agent means any agent, employee, subtenant, contractor, client, licensee, customer, invitee, assignee, or guest of Tenant. All Alterations shall be completed in compliance with all applicable Laws, and Landlords reasonable rules and regulations for construction, and sustainable guidelines and procedures, using new or comparable materials only, by a contractor reasonably approved in writing by Landlord, and on days and at times reasonably approved in writing by Landlord. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlords consent shall not be required for any Alteration costing less than $75,000.00 and that: (i) is nonstructural; (ii) does not impact any of the Building systems, involve electrical work, require a building permit, materially affect the air quality in the Building, or require Landlord to incur material additional costs as a result thereof; and (iii) is not visible from outside of the Premises.
(b) Throughout the performance of Alterations, Tenant shall carry, or cause any contractor, subcontractor, or design professional to carry, via written contract, workers compensation insurance in statutory limits together with employers liability insurance, commercial general liability insurance (including, but not limited to, coverage for ongoing and products-completed operations), automobile liability, and umbrella/excess liability insurance in like form and limits in accordance with the terms and conditions required of Tenant under Section 12 below, and such other insurance coverage and limits as Landlord may otherwise reasonably require, which may include, without limitation, reasonable amounts of professional liability insurance with respect to design professionals, as well as contractors pollution liability with respect to contractors and subcontractors. Tenant shall also require any such contractor, subcontractor, or design professional to satisfy the same additional coverage terms as required of Tenant under Section 12 below with respect to naming Landlord, Landlords Property Manager, and Additional Insureds (as defined in Section 12) and any other applicable party whose name and address shall have been furnished to Tenant each as an additional insured, which have been furnished to Tenant by way of endorsement ISO CG 20 37 together with CG 20 10 or their equivalent, which shall be primary, and any other insurance that may be available to Landlord and any such additional insured will be excess and noncontributory, and waiving all rights of recovery and subrogation. In addition, Tenant shall carry all risk Builders Risk insurance covering the Alterations, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by Landlord and Tenant. Tenant shall provide to Landlord prior written notice of its intention to perform any Alteration, together with a certificate of insurance from each contractor evidencing that the insurance required under this Lease is in effect during all construction activities.
(c) Promptly after final completion of Alterations, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a release of liens from all contractors, subcontractors with respect to work costing more than $10,000, and design professionals associated with all Alterations. Tenant shall be solely responsible for the installation and maintenance of its data, telecommunication, and security systems and wiring at the Premises, which shall be done in compliance with all applicable Laws, and Landlords rules and regulations. Tenant shall be responsible for all elements of Alterations (including, without limitation, compliance with Laws, and functionality of the design), and Landlords approval of any Alteration and the plans therefor shall in no event relieve Tenant of the responsibility for such design, or create responsibility or liability on Landlords part for their completeness, design sufficiency, or compliance with Laws. With respect to all improvements and Alterations made after the date hereof, Tenant acknowledges that: (A) Tenant is not, under any circumstance, acting as the agent of Landlord; (B) Landlord did not cause or request such Alterations to be made; (C) Landlord has not ratified such work; and (D) Landlord did not authorize such Alterations within the meaning of applicable State statutes.. Nothing in this Lease or in any consent to the making of Alterations or improvements shall be deemed or construed in any way as constituting a request by Landlord, express or implied, to any contractor, subcontractor, or supplier for the performance of any labor or the furnishing of any materials for the use or benefit of Landlord. Tenant shall not overload any floor or part thereof in the Premises or the Building, including any public corridors or elevators, by bringing in, placing, storing, installing or removing any large or heavy articles, and Landlord may prohibit, or may direct and control the location and size of, safes and all other heavy articles, and may reasonably require, at Tenants sole cost and expense, supplementary supports of such material and dimensions as Landlord may deem necessary to properly distribute the weight. Any articles of personal property including business
and trade fixtures not attached to, or built into, the Premises, Tenants trade machinery and equipment, free-standing cabinet work, and movable partitions, which were installed by Tenant in the Premises as part of the Leasehold Improvements or otherwise shall be and remain the property of Tenant and may be removed by Tenant at any time during the Term as long as Tenant is not in default hereunder (following the lapse of any applicable notice and cure periods) and provided Tenant repairs to Landlords reasonable satisfaction any damage to the Premises, the Building and any other part of the Project caused by such removal.
10. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING.
(a) Except as expressly permitted pursuant to Section 10(c), neither Tenant nor Tenants legal representatives or successors-in-interest by operation of law or otherwise, shall sell, assign, transfer, hypothecate, mortgage, encumber, grant concessions or licenses, sublet, or otherwise dispose of all or any interest in this Lease or the Premises, or permit any person or entity other than Tenant to occupy any portion of the Premises (each of the foregoing is a Transfer to a Transferee), without Landlords prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. If Landlord fails to respond to a request for consent to a proposed Transfer within 10 business days after Landlords receipt of such request and all of the Transfer Information, the request shall be deemed denied. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord fails to respond within such 10 business-day period, Tenant may thereafter send to Landlord a second written request for approval of the proposed Transfer, which request must set forth in bold and 14-point capitalized type on the first page thereof the following statement: SECOND AND FINAL REQUESTLANDLORD HAS 10 BUSINESS DAYS TO RESPOND PURSUANT TO SECTION 10 (Second Transfer Request). If Landlord then fails to respond to the Second Transfer Request within 10 business days after receipt thereof (Second Transfer Request Response Period), Landlord shall be deemed to have elected to consent to the proposed Transfer, but Landlord shall not be estopped by or deemed to have approved any specific terms of the Transfer (such as, for example, if the assignment document were to release Tenant from any further liability under this Lease or if the sublease provides for a sublease term extending beyond the term of this Lease). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord notifies Tenant in writing within the Second Transfer Request Response Period that Landlord requires additional time to review the request, then the Second Transfer Request Response Period shall be extended by an additional 5 business days. Any Transfer undertaken without Landlords prior written consent (other than pursuant to Section 10(c)) shall, at Landlords option exercised by providing written notice to Tenant within ten (10) business days after Landlord has knowledge of such Transfer, be void. For purposes of this Lease, a Transfer shall include, without limitation, any assignment by operation of law, and any merger, consolidation, or asset sale involving Tenant, any direct or indirect transfer of control of Tenant, and any transfer of a majority of the ownership interests in Tenant. Consent by Landlord to any one Transfer shall be held to apply only to the specific Transfer authorized, and shall not be construed as a waiver of the duty of Tenant, or Tenants legal representatives or assigns, to obtain from Landlord consent to any other or subsequent Transfers pursuant to the foregoing, or as modifying or limiting the rights of Landlord under the foregoing covenant by Tenant.
(b) Without limiting the bases upon which Landlord may reasonably withhold its consent to a proposed Transfer, it shall not be unreasonable for Landlord to withhold its consent if: (i) the proposed assignee shall have a net worth that is not acceptable to Landlord in Landlords reasonable discretion, taking into account the remaining obligations under this Lease and the fact that Tenant is not released; (ii) Tenant is proposing to Transfer to an existing tenant of the Building or the building known as Two Commerce Square if owned by Landlord or Landlords affiliate(s), or to another prospect with whom Landlord or Landlords affiliate(s) are then actively negotiating in the Building or One Commerce Square, and comparable space is available in such buildings; or (iii) the nature of such Transferees proposed business operation would violate the terms of this Lease or of any other lease for the Building (including any exclusivity provisions).
(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Tenant shall have the right without the prior consent of Landlord, but after at least 15 days prior written notice to Landlord, to make a Transfer to any Affiliate (as defined below), or an entity into which Tenant merges or that acquires substantially all of the assets or stock of Tenant (Surviving Entity) (the Surviving Entity or Affiliate are also referred to as a Permitted Transferee); provided: (i) Tenant delivers to Landlord the Transfer Information (as defined below); (ii) the Surviving Entity shall have a tangible net worth at least equal to the net worth of Tenant on the date of this Lease or otherwise reasonably acceptable to Landlord taking into account the fact that the originally named Tenant is not being released; (iii) the originally named Tenant shall not be released or discharged from any liability under this Lease by reason of such Transfer, and the Permitted Transferee shall assume in writing all of the obligations and liabilities of Tenant under
this Lease; (iii) the use of the Premises shall not change; and (iv) such Transfer is not being made to circumvent Tenants obligations under this Lease. An Affiliate means a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or other registered entity, 50% or more of whose equity interest is owned by the same persons or entities owning 50% or more of Tenants equity interests, a subsidiary, or a parent corporation.
(d) If at any time during the Term Tenant desires to complete a Transfer, Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord of such desire together with the Transfer Information.
(e) The Transfer Information means the following information: (i) a copy of the proposed form of or fully executed assignment and assumption agreement, or sublease agreement, as applicable (with respect to a Permitted Transfer, such agreement to be delivered to Landlord within 10 business days after the transaction closes and with respect to all other Transfers, such agreement shall be provided in draft form and shall not be executed until Landlords consent has been given); (ii) a copy of the then-current financials of the Transferee (either audited or certified by the chief financial officer or other officer of the Transferee); and (iii) such other reasonably requested information by Landlord needed to confirm or determine Tenants compliance with the terms and conditions of this Section.
(f) Any sums or other economic consideration received by Tenant as a result of any Transfer (except rental or other payments received that are attributable to the amortization of the cost of leasehold improvements made to the transferred portion of the Premises by Tenant for the Transferee), less Tenants reasonable expenses incident to the Transfer, including, without limitation, standard leasing commission) whether denominated rentals under the sublease or otherwise, that exceed, in the aggregate, the total sums which Tenant is obligated to pay Landlord under this Lease (prorated to reflect obligations allocable to that portion of the Premises subject to such Transfer) shall, at Landlords option, either be retained by Tenant or divided evenly between Landlord and Tenant, with Landlords portion being payable to Landlord as Additional Rent without affecting or reducing any other obligation of Tenant hereunder, provided such difference shall be further reduced by the sum of the following: (i) rental or other payments received that are attributable to the amortization of the cost of leasehold improvements made to the transferred portion of the Premises by Tenant for the Transferee; (ii) reasonable expenses incident to the Transfer, including standard leasing commissions other economic concessions including, without limitation, planning allowance, lease takeover payments, moving expenses and the like paid by Tenant to or on behalf of the Transferee in connection with the Transfer; (iii) reasonable costs incurred by Tenant in advertising the transfer space; and (iv) Tenants and Landlords reasonable attorneys fees paid by Tenant to third parties in connection with the Transfer. Any amounts payable by Tenant to Landlord pursuant to this subsection (f) shall be referred to herein as Transfer Profits.
(g) Regardless of Landlords consent to a proposed Transfer, no Transfer shall release Tenant from Tenants obligations or alter Tenants primary liability to fully and timely pay all Rent when due from time to time under this Lease and to fully and timely perform all of Tenants other obligations under this Lease, and the originally named Tenant and all assignees shall be jointly and severally liable for all Tenant obligations under this Lease. The acceptance of rental by Landlord from any other person shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of any provision hereof. If a Transferee defaults in the performance of any of the terms of this Lease, Landlord may proceed directly against the originally named Tenant without the necessity of exhausting remedies against such Transferee. If there has been a Transfer and an Event of Default occurs, Landlord may collect Rent from the Transferee and apply the net amount collected to the Rent herein reserved; but no such collection shall be deemed a waiver of the provisions of this Section, an acceptance of such Transferee as tenant hereunder or a release of Tenant from further performance of the covenants herein contained.
11. REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE.
(a) Except with respect to Landlord Repairs (as defined below) and any other obligations of Landlord expressly set forth in this Lease, Tenant, at Tenants expense, shall keep and maintain the Premises in good order and condition including promptly making all repairs necessary to keep and maintain such in good order and condition. When used in this Lease, repairs shall include repairs and any reasonably necessary replacements. Tenant shall have the option of replacing lights, ballasts, tubes, ceiling tiles, outlets and similar equipment itself or advising Landlord of Tenants desire to have Landlord make such repairs, in which case Tenant shall pay to Landlord for such repairs at Landlords then-standard rate. To the extent that Tenant requests that Landlord make any other repairs that
are Tenants obligation to make under this Lease, Landlord may elect to make such repairs on Tenants behalf, at Tenants expense, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord such expense along with the Administrative Fee. If there is an uncured Event of Default, Landlord may elect to require that Tenant prepay the amount of such repair. All Tenant repairs shall comply with Laws and utilize materials and equipment that are at least equal in quality to those being repaired. In addition, Tenant shall maintain, at Tenants expense, Tenants Supplemental HVAC, Premises Hot Water Heaters, and/or Alterations in a clean and safe manner and in proper operating condition throughout the Term. Tenants Supplemental HVAC means any supplemental HVAC system serving only the Premises (regardless of who installed it). Premises Hot Water Heater means any hot water heater serving only the Premises (regardless of who installed it), including without limitation expansion tanks and any associated piping. Tenant shall maintain Tenants Supplemental HVAC under a service contract with a firm and upon such terms as may be reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, including inspection and maintenance on at least a semiannual basis, and provide Landlord with a copy thereof. Within ten (10) days after Landlords request, Tenant shall provide Landlord with evidence that such contract is in place. Further, Tenant shall ensure that all Premises Hot Water Heaters have a working automatic water shut-off device with audible alarm and a leak pan underneath with the drain line run to a suitable floor drain. All repairs to the Building and/or the Project made necessary by reason of the installation, maintenance, and operation of Tenants Supplemental HVAC, Premises Hot Water Heaters, and Alterations shall be Tenants expense. In the event of an emergency, such as a burst waterline or act of God, Landlord shall have the right to make repairs for which Tenant is responsible hereunder (at Tenants cost) without giving Tenant prior notice, but in such case Landlord shall provide notice to Tenant as soon as practicable thereafter, and Landlord shall take commercially reasonable steps to minimize the costs incurred. Further, Landlord shall have the right to make repairs for which Tenant is responsible hereunder (at Tenants cost) with prior notice to Tenant if Landlord believes in its sole and absolute discretion that the repairs are necessary to prevent harm or damage to the Building, and Landlord shall take commercially reasonable steps to minimize the costs incurred.
(b) Landlord, at Landlords expense (except to the extent such expenses are includable in Project Expenses), shall make all necessary repairs to: (i) the footings and foundations and the structural elements of the Building; (ii) the roof of the Building; (iii) the HVAC, plumbing, elevators (if any), electric, fire protection and fire alert systems within the Building core from the core to the point of connection for service to the Premises, but specifically excluding Tenants Supplemental HVAC, Premises Hot Water Heaters, and Alterations; (iv) the Building exterior; and (v) the Common Areas (collectively, Landlord Repairs). All Landlord Repairs shall be made in accordance with the standard of a first class office building. Any provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, any repairs to the Project or any portion thereof made necessary by the willful misconduct of Tenant or any Tenant Agent shall be made at Tenants expense, subject to the waivers set forth in Section 12(c). Landlord shall, with respect to Landlord Repairs, use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the disruption or interference to Tenants normal and customary business operations in the Premises.
12. INSURANCE; SUBROGATION RIGHTS.
(a) Tenant shall not violate, or permit the violation of, any condition imposed by any insurance policy then issued in respect of the Project and shall not do, or permit anything to be done, or keep or permit anything to be kept in the Premises, that would subject Landlord to any liability or responsibility for personal injury or death or property damage, increase any insurance rate in respect of the Project over the rate that would otherwise then be in effect, result in insurance companies of good standing refusing to insure the Project in amounts reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, or result in the cancellation of, or the assertion of any defense by the insurer in whole or in part to claims under, any policy of insurance in respect of the Project. If, by reason of any failure of Tenant to comply with this Lease, the premiums on Landlords insurance on the Project are higher than they otherwise would be, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, on demand, for that part of such premiums attributable to such failure on the part of Tenant.
(b) Tenant, at Tenants expense, shall obtain and keep in full force and effect at all times as of the Commencement Date (or Tenants earlier accessing of the Premises), all of the following insurance policies:
(i) commercial general liability insurance written on an ISO CG 00 01 occurrence policy form or its equivalent, including a Separation of Insureds clause, coverage for contractual liability covering Tenants contractual obligations under this Lease as an insured contract, personal injury liability, host liquor liability, premises-operations and hazards thereto, as well as liability arising out of this Lease in respect of the Premises and the conduct or operation of business therein. The minimum limits of coverage shall be no less than $1,000,000 per
occurrence and $2,000,000 general aggregate (applying per location) for bodily injury (including death and mental anguish) and property damage, $1,000,000 personal and advertising injury, and $2,000,000 products-completed operations (for which coverage shall be maintained continuously for a minimum period equal to the applicable statute of limitations or statute of repose, whichever is greater) or in such other amounts as Landlord may from time to time require.
(ii) business automobile liability insurance covering liability arising from any auto (including, owned, non-owned, and hired auto, provided such non-owned and hired auto liability may be satisfied by endorsement to the commercial general liability policy) in an amount of no less than $ 1,000,000 combined single limit per accident for bodily injury and property damage.
(iii) workers compensation in statutory limits together with employers liability insurance in amounts of no less than $1,000,000 each accident, $1,000,000 disease policy limit, and $1,000,000 disease each employee.
(iv) umbrella/excess liability insurance on a follow form basis in amounts of no less than $10,000,000 per occurrence and $10,000,000 annual aggregate (applying per location) in excess of commercial general liability, employers liability, and automobile liability insurance policies, concurrent to, and no more restrictive than such underlying insurance policies. Such policy shall be endorsed to provide that this insurance is primary to, and noncontributory with, any other insurance in which Landlord and any Additional Insured is an insured, whether such other insurance is primary, excess, self-insurance, or insurance on any other basis, which must cause the umbrella/excess coverage to be vertically exhausted, whereby such coverage is not subject to any Other Insurance provision under Tenants umbrella/excess liability policy. The limits of liability may be satisfied by a combination of primary and excess liability insurance.
(v) property insurance written on an ISO CP 10 30-Cause of Loss-Special Form, commonly referred to as the all risk policy form, or its equivalent, including, but not limited to, coverage against sprinkler leakage and other damage due to water, fire, windstorm, cyclone, tornado, hail, earthquake, explosion, riot, civil commotion, aircraft, vehicle, smoke damage, vandalism, and malicious mischief insuring all present and future Tenants Property leased by or in the care, custody, and control of Tenant and located in the Premises in an amount of no less than the full replacement cost thereof, with an agreed amount endorsement (waiving applicable co-insurance clause). Tenants Property means Tenants trade fixtures, equipment, personal property, signage, and Specialty Alterations (as defined in Section 18(b)). Tenant shall not self-insure. Tenant shall neither have, nor make, any claim against Landlord for any loss or damage to Tenants Property, regardless of the cause of the loss or damage, including, without limitation, fire, explosion, falling plaster, steam, gas, air contaminants or emissions, electricity, electrical or electronic emanations or disturbance, water, rain, snow, or leaks from any part the Building or from the pipes, appliances, equipment, or plumbing works or from the roof or from any other place, nor shall Landlord be liable for any loss of or damage to property of Tenant or of others entrusted to employees of Landlord.
(vi) business interruption insurance covering any loss due to the occurrence of any of the hazards required to be insured against by Tenant pursuant to this Lease, in an amount sufficient to cover Tenants monetary obligations under this Lease for a period of at least 12 months.
(vii) boiler and machinery, if there is a boiler, supplemental air conditioning unit, or pressure object or similar equipment in the Premises. When applicable, this insurance coverage requirement may be satisfied through the all-risk coverage required in Section 12(b)(v).
(c) All insurance policies required of Tenant under this Lease, including ongoing and products-completed operations coverage but exclusive of workers compensation, shall name Landlord, Landlords property manager, Brandywine Realty Trust, and any other applicable party whose name and address have been furnished to Tenant, each as an additional insured (collectively, Additional Insureds). All such coverages shall be primary and any other insurance that may be available to Landlord and any Additional Insured will be excess and noncontributory. Each Additional Insured shall be afforded coverage as broad as if this Lease had expressly covered the claim against the Additional Insured, and for the greater of the minimum amount called for by this Lease or Tenants actual policy limit.
(d) Prior to the Commencement Date (or Tenants earlier accessing of the Premises), Tenant shall provide Landlord and/or Landlords designated agent with certificates that evidence that all insurance coverages required under this Lease are in place for the policy periods. Tenant shall also furnish to Landlord and/or Landlords designated agent throughout the Term replacement certificates at least 30 days prior to the expiration dates of the then-current policy or policies or, upon request by Landlord and/or Landlords designated agent from time to time, sufficient information to evidence that the insurance required under this Section is in full force and effect. In addition, all such policies shall contain a provision whereby the same cannot be canceled or materially altered without at least 30 days prior written notice of such cancellation or material alteration provided to Landlord, which shall be afforded by policy endorsement extending such notice to Landlord. Tenant shall include a waiver of the insurers right of subrogation against Landlord and Additional Insureds during the Term in each of Tenants liability and workers compensation policies. If Tenant fails to provide Landlord and/or Landlords designated agent with a requested insurance certificate as required under this Lease within 30 days after receipt of Landlords written request therefor, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a fee equal to $25.00 for each day that elapses after such 30-day period until Landlord and/or Landlords designated agent receives the requested certificate. In no event will any acceptance of certificates of insurance by Landlord, or failure of Tenant to provide certificates of insurance as required hereunder, be construed as a waiver or limitation of Tenants obligations to maintain insurance coverage pursuant to this Section 12. All insurance required under this Lease shall be issued by an insurance company that has been in business for at least 5 years, is authorized to do business in the State, and is rated A-/X or greater by A.M. Bests Insurance Reports or any successor publication of comparable standing. The limits of any such required insurance shall not in any way limit Tenants liability under this Lease or otherwise. If Tenant fails to maintain such insurance, Landlord may, but shall not be required to, procure and maintain the same, at Tenants expense, which expense shall be reimbursed by Tenant as Additional Rent within 60 days after written demand. The deductible or self-insured retention amount required under any insurance policy maintained by Tenant shall be the sole responsibility of Tenant and not exceed $25,000, unless otherwise approved by Landlord in writing.
(e) When Alterations are in process, Tenant shall carry, or cause, any contractor, subcontractor, and design professional to carry the insurance specified in Section 9. In addition, Tenant shall require its movers and other vendors to procure insurance in like forms and amounts as required herein and deliver to Landlord and/or Landlords designated agent a certificate of insurance naming each Additional Insured as an additional insured, which policies shall be primary and any other insurance that may be available to Landlord and any Additional Insured will be excess and noncontributory.
(f) Landlord shall obtain and maintain, or cause to be obtained or maintained, the following insurance during the Term: (i) replacement cost insurance including all risk property insurance on the Building, including without limitation leasehold improvements (exclusive of Tenants Property); (ii) commercial general liability insurance (including bodily injury and property damage) covering Landlords operations at the Project in amounts reasonably required by Landlord or any Mortgagee (as defined in Section 16); and (iii) such other insurance as reasonably required by Landlord or any Mortgagee.
(g) Landlord and Tenant, shall each include in each of its insurance policies (insuring the Building in case of Landlord, and insuring Tenants Property in the case of Tenant, against loss, damage, or destruction by fire or other casualty) a waiver of the insurers right of subrogation against the other party during the Term, and consent to a waiver of right of recovery pursuant to the terms of this paragraph. Both Landlord and Tenant agree to immediately give each insurance company which has issued to it policies of insurance written notice of the terms of such mutual waivers and to cause such insurance policies to be properly endorsed, if necessary, to prevent the invalidation thereof by reason of such waivers. If such waivers are unobtainable from the insurance carrier or unenforceable, then the party who was assured the waiver of subrogation shall receive from the other party: (i) an express agreement that such policy shall not be invalidated if the assured party waives the right of recovery against any party responsible for a casualty covered by the policy before the casualty; or (ii) any other form of permission for the release of the other party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease: (I) each party hereby waives, releases, and agrees not to make any claim against or seek to recover from, the other party with respect to any claim (including a claim for negligence) that such party might otherwise have against the other party for loss, damage, or destruction with respect to its property occurring during the Term to the extent to which such party is, or is required to be, insured under a policy or policies containing a waiver of subrogation or permission to release liability; and (II) all waivers of subrogation and rights of recovery required hereunder shall also apply to each of the waiving partys insurance policies deductible(s)/self-insured retention(s). Nothing contained in this Section 12(g) shall be deemed to relieve either party of any duty imposed elsewhere in this Lease to repair, restore, or rebuild, or nullify any abatement of rents provided for elsewhere in this Lease.
(a) Except to the extent the release of liability and waiver of subrogation provided in Section 12 above applies, Tenant shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Landlord, Landlords property manager, Brandywine Realty Trust, and each of Landlords directors, officers, members, partners, trustees, employees, and agents (collectively, Landlord Indemnitees) from and against any and all third-party claims, actions, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees)) to the extent arising out of or from or related to: (i) any breach or default of any of Tenants obligations under this Lease, except in any such case to the extent arising from the negligent or willful act or omission of one or more Landlord Indemnitee; (ii) any negligence or willful act or omission of Tenant, any Tenant Indemnitees (as defined below), or any Tenant Agent; and (iii) except in any such case to the extent arising from the negligent or willful act or omission of one or more Landlord Indemnitee, any acts or omissions occurring at, or the condition, use, or operation of, the Premises. If Tenant fails to promptly defend a Landlord Indemnitee following written demand by the Landlord Indemnitee, the Landlord Indemnitee shall defend the same at Tenants expense, by retaining or employing counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Landlord Indemnitee.
(b) Except to the extent the release of liability and waiver of subrogation provided in Section 12 above applies, Landlord shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Tenant and each of Tenants directors, officers, members, partners, trustees, employees, and agents (collectively, Tenant Indemnitees) from and against any and all third-party claims, actions, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees)) to the extent arising out of or from or related to: (i) any breach or default of any of Landlords obligations under this Lease, except in any such case to the extent arising from the negligent or willful act or omission of one or more Tenant Indemnitee; and (ii) any negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, Landlord Indemnitees or Landlords agents, employees, or contractors. If Landlord fails to promptly defend a Tenant Indemnitee following written demand by the Tenant Indemnitee, the Tenant Indemnitee shall defend the same at Landlords expense, by retaining or employing counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Tenant Indemnitee.
(c) Landlords and Tenants obligations under this Section shall not be limited by the amount or types of insurance maintained or required to be maintained under this Lease. The provisions of this Section shall survive the Expiration Date.
14. CASUALTY DAMAGE. If there occurs any casualty to the Project and: (i) insurance proceeds are unavailable to Landlord or are insufficient to restore the Project to substantially its pre-casualty condition; or (ii) more than 30% of the total area of the Building is damaged, Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease and all the unaccrued obligations of the parties hereto, by sending written notice of such termination to Tenant within 60 days after such casualty. Such notice shall specify a termination date not fewer than 30 nor more than 90 days after such notice is given to Tenant. If there occurs any casualty to the Premises, within twenty (20) days thereafter, Landlord shall notify the Tenant in writing of Landlords reasonable estimated timeframe for the completion of the restoration. If there occurs any casualty to the Premises and: (a) in Landlords reasonable judgment, the repair and restoration work would require more than 180 consecutive days to complete after the casualty (assuming normal work crews not engaged in overtime); or (b) the casualty occurs during the last 12 months of the Term and will take more than 60 days to repair, Landlord and Tenant shall each have the right to terminate this Lease and all the unaccrued obligations of the parties hereto, by sending written notice of such termination to the other party within 60 days after the date of such casualty. Such notice shall specify a termination date not fewer than 30 nor more than 90 days after such notice is given to the other party, but in no event shall the termination date be after the last day of the Term. If this Lease is not terminated pursuant to this paragraph and Landlord fails to complete the repair or restoration work within 60 days after Landlords estimated date for completion of the repair and restoration work (subject to a day for day extension for each day of Tenant Delay and Force Majeure Events), then Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by sending at least 30 days prior written notice to Landlord within 30 days after such estimated date of completion, provided this Lease shall remain in full force and effect and Tenant shall no longer have the right to terminate this Lease if Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant within 30 days after Landlords receipt of Tenants termination notice. If there occurs any casualty to the Premises and neither party terminates this Lease, then Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the damage to be repaired (exclusive of Tenants Property) to a
condition as nearly as practicable to that existing prior to the damage, with commercially reasonable speed and diligence, subject to delays that may arise by reason of adjustment of the loss under insurance policies, Laws, and Force Majeure Events. Landlord shall not be liable for any inconvenience or annoyance to Tenant or Tenant Indemnitees, injury to Tenants business, or pain and suffering resulting in any way from such damage or the repair thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenants obligation to pay Fixed Rent and Additional Rent shall be equitably adjusted or abated during the period (if any) during which Tenant is not reasonably able to use the Premises or an applicable portion thereof as a result of such casualty. Tenant shall have no right to terminate this Lease as a result of any damage or destruction of the Premises, except as expressly provided in this Section. The provisions of this Lease, including this Section, constitute an express agreement between Landlord and Tenant with respect to any and all damage to, or destruction of, all or any part of the Premises, and any Law with respect to any rights or obligations concerning damage or destruction in the absence of an express agreement between the parties, and any other statute or regulation, now or hereafter in effect, shall have no application to this Lease or any damage or destruction to all or any part of the Premises.
15. CONDEMNATION. If a taking renders the Premises reasonably unsuitable for the Permitted Use or prevents reasonable access to the Premises, this Lease shall, at either partys option exercised by written notice to the other within 30 days after such taking, terminate as of the date title to condemned real estate vests in the condemner, the Rent herein reserved shall be apportioned and paid in full by Tenant to Landlord to such date of taking, all Rent prepaid for period beyond that date shall forthwith be repaid by Landlord to Tenant, and neither party shall thereafter have any liability for any unaccrued obligations hereunder; provided, however, a condition to the exercise by Tenant of such right to terminate shall be that the portion of the Premises taken shall be of such extent and nature as materially to handicap, impede, or impair Tenants use of the balance of the Premises for its normal business operations. If this Lease is not terminated after a condemnation, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Fixed Rent and Additional Rent shall be equitably reduced in proportion to the area of the Premises that has been taken for the balance of the Term. Tenant shall have the right to make a claim against the condemner for moving expenses and business dislocation damages to the extent that such claim does not reduce the sums otherwise payable by the condemner to Landlord.
16. SUBORDINATION; ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE.
(a) Provided Tenants right of possession of the Premises shall not be disturbed during the Term by the Mortgagee so long as there is no then-existing Event of Default, this Lease shall be subordinate at all times to the lien of any mortgages and deeds of trust now or hereafter placed upon the Premises, Building, and/or Project and land of which they are a part (a Mortgage) without the necessity of any further instrument or act on the part of Tenant to effectuate such subordination and non-disturbance. Tenant further agrees to execute and deliver within 20 days after request such further instrument in form reasonably approved by Tenant evidencing such subordination and attornment as shall be reasonably required by any Mortgagee. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a subordination, non-disturbance, and attornment agreement from the current and any future Mortgagee on such Mortgagees then-current commercially reasonable form with reasonable modifications by Tenant upon Tenants written request and at Tenants cost. If Landlord shall be or is alleged to be in default of any of its obligations owing to Tenant under this Lease, Tenant shall give to the holder (the Mortgagee) of any mortgage or deed of trust now or hereafter placed upon the Premises, Building, and/or Project whose name and address has been furnished to Tenant, notice by overnight mail of any such default that Tenant shall have served upon Landlord. Tenant shall not be entitled to exercise any right or remedy as there may be because of any default by Landlord without having given such notice to the Mortgagee. The Mortgagee shall have thirty (30) days from receipt of Tenants notice within which to cure such default or such longer period as may be reasonably necessary to complete the cure provided Mortgagee is proceeding diligently to cure such default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Mortgagee may at any time subordinate its mortgage to this Lease, without Tenants consent, by notice in writing to Tenant, and thereupon this Lease shall be deemed prior to such Mortgage without regard to their respective dates of execution and delivery, and in that event the Mortgagee shall have the same rights with respect to this Lease as though it had been executed prior to the execution and delivery of the Mortgage.
(b) Tenant shall attorn to any foreclosing mortgagee, purchaser at a foreclosure sale or by power of sale, or purchaser by deed in lieu of foreclosure. If the holder of a superior mortgage shall succeed to the rights of Landlord, then at the request of such party so succeeding to Landlords rights (herein sometimes called successor landlord) and upon such successor landlords written agreement to accept Tenants attornment, Tenant shall
attorn to and recognize such successor landlord as Tenants landlord under this Lease and shall promptly, without payment to Tenant of any consideration therefor, execute and deliver any instrument that such successor landlord may reasonably request, with reasonable modifications by Tenant, to evidence such attornment. Upon such attornment, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as, or as if it were, a direct lease between the successor landlord and Tenant upon all of the terms, conditions, and covenants as are set forth in this Lease and shall be applicable after such attornment, except that the successor landlord shall not be bound by any modification of this Lease not approved by the mortgagee which materially increases Landlords obligations or materially decreases Tenants obligations under this Lease, or by any previous prepayment of more than one months rent, unless such modification or prepayment shall have been expressly approved in writing by the holder of the superior mortgage through or by reason of which the successor landlord shall have succeeded to the rights of Landlord. With respect to any assignment by Landlord of Landlords interest in this Lease, or the rents payable hereunder, conditional in nature or otherwise, which assignment is made to any Mortgagee, Tenant agrees that the execution thereof by Landlord, and the acceptance thereof by the Mortgagee, shall never be deemed an assumption by such Mortgagee of any of the obligations of Landlord hereunder, unless such Mortgagee shall, by written notice sent to Tenant, specifically elect, or unless such Mortgagee shall foreclose the Mortgage and take possession of the Premises. Tenant, upon receipt of written notice from a Mortgagee that such Mortgagee is entitled to collect Rent hereunder may in good faith remit such Rent to Mortgagee without incurring liability to Landlord for the nonpayment of such Rent. The provisions for attornment set forth in this Section 16(b) shall be self-operative and shall not require the execution of any further instrument. However, if Landlord reasonably requests a further instrument confirming such attornment, Tenant shall execute and deliver such instrument, with reasonable modifications by Tenant, within 30 days after receipt of such request.
(c) Tenant shall at any time and from time to time (but not more often than once per 6-month period), within 10 business days after receipt of Landlords written request, execute and deliver to Landlord a commercially reasonable estoppel certificate, with reasonable modifications by Tenant, certifying all reasonably requested information pertaining to this Lease.
17. DEFAULT AND REMEDIES.
(a) An Event of Default shall be deemed to exist and Tenant shall be in default hereunder if: (i) Tenant fails to pay any Rent when due and such failure continues for more than 5 business days after Landlord has given Tenant written notice of such failure (such notice being in lieu of, and not in addition to, any applicable statutory notice); provided, however, in no event shall Landlord have any obligation to give Tenant more than two (2) such notices in any 12-month period, after which .there shall be an Event of Default if Tenant fails to pay any Rent when due during such 12-month period, regardless of Tenants receipt of notice of such nonpayment, and, provided further, there shall be an automatic Event of Default if Tenant fails to pay any Rent when due and the automatic stay of bankruptcy precludes issuance of a default notice; (ii) Tenant receives written notice from Landlord of a mechanics or materialmens lien that has been filed in connection with work performed by or on behalf of Tenant (exclusive of the Leasehold Improvements) which Tenant fails to bond over or otherwise cause to be removed of record within 15 days, and then Landlord sends a second notice of the lien and Tenant fails to bond over or otherwise cause to be removed of record such lien within 10 days after Landlords second notice; (iii) there is any assignment or subletting (regardless of whether the same might be void under this Lease) in violation of the terms of this Lease and Tenant fails to undo or void such Transfer within ten (10) business days after written notice from Landlord; (iv) Tenant fails to deliver any Landlord-requested estoppel certificate or subordination agreement within 10 business days after receipt of notice that such document was not received within the time period required under this Lease, provided (A) such notice states in bold that Tenants failure to respond within ten (10) business days shall be an Event of Default and (B) it shall not be an Event of Default if Tenants failure to deliver such document is a result of Tenants good faith negotiation of the form of such document; (v) there is a filing of a voluntary petition for relief by Tenant or any guarantor, or the filing of a petition against Tenant or any guarantor in a proceeding under the federal bankruptcy or other insolvency laws that is not withdrawn or dismissed within 90 days thereafter, or Tenants rejection of this Lease after such a filing, or, under the provisions of any law providing for reorganization or winding up of corporations, the assumption by any court of competent jurisdiction of jurisdiction, custody, or control of Tenant or any substantial part of its property, or of any guarantor, where such jurisdiction, custody, or control remains in force, unrelinquished, unstayed, or unterminated for a period of 90 days, or the commencement of steps or proceedings toward the dissolution, winding up, or other termination of the existence of Tenant, or toward the liquidation of either of their respective assets, or the evidence of the inability of Tenant or any guarantor to pay its debts as they come due, including without limitation an admission in writing of its inability to pay its debts when due, or any judgment docketed against
any guarantor which is not paid, bonded, or otherwise discharged within 45 days; or (vi) Tenant fails to observe or perform any of Tenants other agreements or obligations under this Lease and such failure continues for more than 30 days after Landlord gives Tenant written notice of such failure (not to exceed an additional 150 days), or the expiration of such additional time period as is reasonably necessary to cure such failure, provided Tenant promptly commences and thereafter proceeds with all due diligence and in good faith to cure such failure.
(b) Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord, in addition to the other rights or remedies it may have under this Lease, at law, or in equity, and without prejudice to any of the same, shall have the option, without any notice to Tenant and with or without judicial process, to pursue any one or more of the following remedies:
(i) Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord, and Tenant shall pay Landlord upon demand for the direct losses and damages that Landlord suffers or incurs by reason of such termination which shall equal damages in an amount equal to the total of: (A) the costs of repossessing the Premises and all other expenses reasonably incurred by Landlord in connection with Tenants default, plus the Administrative Fee; (B) the unpaid Rent earned as of the date of termination; and (C) all Rent for the period that would otherwise have constituted the remainder of the Term less the fair market rental of the Premises for such period (as reasonably determined as of the time of such termination by a third party engaged by Landlord) discounted to present value at a rate of 2% per annum. The Administrative Fee means 5% of the costs incurred by Landlord in curing Tenants default or performing Tenants obligations hereunder.
(ii) Landlord shall have the right to terminate Tenants right of possession (but not this Lease) and may repossess the Premises in accordance with applicable Law, without demand or notice of any kind to Tenant and without terminating this Lease. If Tenant receives written notice of a termination of its right to possession, such notice will serve as both a notice to vacate, notice to pay or quit, and a demand for possession of, the Premises, and Landlord may immediately thereafter initiate a forcible detainer action without any further demand or notice of any kind to Tenant.
(iii) Landlord shall have the right to enter and take possession of all or any portion of the Premises in accordance with applicable law without electing to terminate this Lease, in which case Landlord shall have the right to relet all, or any portion of the Premises on such terms as Landlord deems advisable, and such amounts collected by Landlord for such reletting shall offset any damages payable by Tenant hereunder. Landlord will not be required to incur any expenses to relet all or any portion of the Premises, although Landlord may at its option incur customary leasing commissions or other costs for the account of Tenant as Landlord shall deem necessary or appropriate to relet. In no event will the failure of Landlord to relet all or any portion of the Premises reduce Tenants liability for Rent or damages.
(iv) Landlord shall have the right to enter the Premises without terminating this Lease and without being liable for prosecution or any claim for damages therefor and maintain the Premises and repair or replace any damage thereto or do anything for which Tenant is responsible hereunder. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord immediately upon demand for any out-of-pocket costs which Landlord incurs in thus effecting Tenants compliance under this Lease, and Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any damages with respect thereto.
(v) Landlord shall have the right to continue this Lease in full force and effect, whether or not Tenant shall have abandoned the Premises. If Landlord elects to continue this Lease in full force and effect pursuant to this Section, then Landlord shall be entitled to enforce all of its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover Rent as it becomes due. Landlords election not to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section or pursuant to any other provision of this Lease, at law or in equity, shall not preclude Landlord from showing the Premises to potential tenants, subsequently electing to terminate this Lease, or pursuing any of its other remedies.
(c) Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for, and Landlord shall be entitled to recover: (i) all Rent accrued and unpaid; (ii) all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in recovering possession of the Premises, including reasonable legal fees, and removal and storage of Tenants property; (iii) the costs and expenses of restoring the Premises to the condition in which the same were to have been surrendered by Tenant as of the Expiration Date; (iv) the costs of reletting commissions; (v) all legal fees and court costs incurred by Landlord in connection with the Event of Default; and (vi) the unamortized portion (as reasonably determined by Landlord) of brokerage commissions and consulting fees incurred by Landlord, and tenant concessions including free rent given by Landlord, in connection with this Lease.
(d) Any amount payable by Tenant under this Lease that is not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of 1% per month until paid by Tenant to Landlord.
(e) Neither any delay or forbearance by Landlord in exercising any right or remedy hereunder nor Landlords undertaking or performing any act that Landlord is not expressly required to undertake under this Lease shall be construed to be a waiver of Landlords rights or to represent any agreement by Landlord to thereafter undertake or perform such act. Landlords waiver of any breach by Tenant of any covenant or condition herein contained (which waiver shall be effective only if so expressed in writing by Landlord) or Landlords failure to exercise any right or remedy in respect of any such breach shall not constitute a waiver or relinquishment for the future of Landlords right to have any such covenant or condition duly performed or observed by Tenant, or of Landlords rights arising because of any subsequent breach of any such covenant or condition, nor bar any right or remedy of Landlord in respect of such breach or any subsequent breach.
(f) If there is a default by Tenant in the performance of any covenant, agreement, term, provision or condition contained in this Lease which results in an emergency situation, or there is an Event of Default, then in either case, Landlord, in addition to any other rights and remedies it has under this Lease and without thereby waiving such default, may perform the same for the account of and at the expense of Tenant (but shall not be obligated to do so), without notice in a case of emergency and in any other case if such default continues after 5 days from the date that Landlord gives written notice to Tenant of its intention to do so. Landlord may invoice Tenant for all amounts paid by Landlord and all losses, costs, and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with any such performance by Landlord pursuant to this paragraph, plus the Administrative Fee, including, without limitation, all amounts paid and costs and expenses incurred by Landlord for any property, material, labor, or services provided, furnished, or rendered, or caused to be provided, furnished, or rendered, by Landlord to Tenant (together with interest at the rate of 1% per month from the date Landlord pays the amount or incurs the loss, cost, or expense until the date of full repayment by Tenant) monthly or immediately, at Landlords option, and shall be due and payable by Tenant to Landlord as Additional Rent within 60 days after Tenant receives the invoice. Any reservation of a right by Landlord to enter upon the Premises and to make or perform any repairs, alterations, or other work in, to, or about the Premises, which, in the first instance, is Tenants obligation pursuant to this Lease, shall not be deemed to impose any obligation on Landlord to do so, render Landlord liable to Tenant or any third party for the failure to do so, or relieve Tenant from any obligation to indemnify Landlord as otherwise provided elsewhere in this Lease.
(g) The rights granted to Landlord in this Section shall be cumulative of every other right or remedy provided in this Lease or which Landlord may otherwise have at law or in equity or by statute, and the exercise of one or more rights or remedies shall not prejudice or impair the concurrent or subsequent exercise of other rights or remedies or constitute a forfeiture or waiver of Rent or damages accruing to Landlord by reason of any Event of Default under this Lease. Landlord shall have all rights and remedies now or hereafter existing at law or in equity with respect to the enforcement of Tenants obligations hereunder and the recovery of the Premises. No right or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to Landlord shall be exclusive of any other right or remedy, but shall be cumulative and in addition to all other rights and remedies given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity. Landlord shall be entitled to injunctive relief in case of the violation, or attempted or threatened violation, of any covenant, agreement, condition or provision of this Lease, or to a decree compelling performance of any covenant, agreement, condition or provision of this Lease.
(h) No payment by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than any payment of Fixed Rent or Additional Rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest stipulated Fixed Rent or Additional Rent due and payable hereunder, nor shall any endorsement or statement or any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as Rent be deemed an accord and satisfaction. Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlords right to recover the balance of such Rent or pursue any other right or remedy provided for in this Lease, at law or in equity, and acceptance of such partial payment shall be deemed subject to Landlords reservation of all rights.
(i) Tenant further waives the right to any notices to quit as may be specified in the Landlord and TenantAct of Pennsylvania, Act of April 6, 1951, as amended, or any similar or successor provision of law, and agrees that 5 days notice shall be sufficient in any case where a longer period may be statutorily specified.
(j) In addition to, and not in lieu of any of the foregoing rights granted to Landlord:
(1) WHEN THIS LEASE OR TENANTS RIGHT OF POSSESSION SHALL BE TERMINATED BY COVENANT OR CONDITION BROKEN, OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON, EITHER DURING THE TERM OF THIS LEASE OR ANY RENEWAL OR EXTENSION THEREOF, AND ALSO WHEN AND AS SOON AS THE TERM HEREBY CREATED OR ANY EXTENSION THEREOF SHALL HAVE EXPIRED, IT SHALL BE LAWFUL FOR ANY ATTORNEY AS ATTORNEY FOR TENANT TO FILE AN AGREEMENT FOR ENTERING IN ANY COMPETENT COURT AN ACTION TO CONFESS JUDGMENT IN EJECTMENT AGAINST TENANT AND ALL PERSONS CLAIMING UNDER TENANT, WHEREUPON, IF LANDLORD SO DESIRES, A WRIT OF EXECUTION OR OF POSSESSION MAY ISSUE FORTHWITH, WITHOUT ANY PRIOR WRIT OF PROCEEDINGS, WHATSOEVER, AND PROVIDED IF FOR ANY REASON AFTER SUCH ACTION SHALL HAVE BEEN COMMENCED THE SAME SHALL BE DETERMINED AND THE POSSESSION OF THE PREMISES HEREBY DEMISED REMAIN IN OR BE RESTORED TO TENANT, LANDLORD SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT UPON ANY SUBSEQUENT DEFAULT OR DEFAULTS, OR UPON THE TERMINATION OF THIS LEASE AS HEREINBEFORE SET FORTH, TO BRING ONE OR MORE ACTION OR ACTIONS AS HEREINBEFORE SET FORTH TO RECOVER POSSESSION OF THE SAID PREMISES.
(2) In any action to confess judgment in ejectment, Landlord shall first cause to be filed in such action an affidavit made by it or someone acting for it setting forth the facts necessary to authorize the entry of judgment, of which facts such affidavit shall be conclusive evidence, and if a true copy of this Lease (and of the truth of the copy such affidavit shall be sufficient evidence) be filed in such action, it shall not be necessary to file the original as a warrant of attorney, any rule of Court, custom or practice to the contrary notwithstanding. Tenant represents to Landlord that it has a gross income of at least $10,000.
TENANT WAIVER. TENANT SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT TENANT HAS VOLUNTARILY, KNOWINGLY, AND INTELLIGENTLY WAIVED CERTAIN DUE PROCESS RIGHTS TO A PREJUDGMENT HEARING BY AGREEING TO THE TERMS OF THE FOREGOING PARAGRAPHS REGARDING CONFESSION OF JUDGMENT. TENANT FURTHER SPECIFICALLY AGREES THAT IN THE EVENT OF DEFAULT, LANDLORD MAY PURSUE MULTIPLE REMEDIES INCLUDING OBTAINING POSSESSION PURSUANT TO A JUDGMENT BY CONFESSION AND ALSO OBTAINING A MONEY JUDGMENT FOR PAST DUE AND ACCELERATED AMOUNTS AND EXECUTING UPON SUCH JUDGMENT. IN SUCH EVENT AND SUBJECT TO THE TERMS SET FORTH HEREIN, LANDLORD SHALL PROVIDE FULL CREDIT TO TENANT FOR ANY MONTHLY CONSIDERATION WHICH LANDLORD RECEIVES FOR THE LEASED PREMISES IN MITIGATION OF ANY OBLIGATION OF TENANT TO LANDLORD FOR THAT MONEY. FURTHERMORE, TENANT SPECIFICALLY WAIVES ANY CLAIM AGAINST LANDLORD AND LANDLORDS COUNSEL FOR VIOLATION OF TENANTS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS IN THE EVENT THAT JUDGMENT IS CONFESSED PURSUANT TO THIS LEASE.

(k) If Landlord defaults in the performance of any of its maintenance or repair obligations under this Lease, Tenant may send to Landlord written notice thereof, which notice must identify with reasonable specificity the default and Tenants remedies under this paragraph (Reminder Notice). If Landlord fails to either: (i) dispute the existence of such default within 5 business days; or (ii) cure such default within Landlords Cure Period,
then a Landlord Failure is deemed to exist and Tenant will have all rights and remedies available at law or in equity for a landlord default Landlords Cure Period means 30 days after Landlords receipt of a Reminder Notice, provided if cure cannot be reasonably effected by Landlord within such 30-day period, Landlords Cure Period includes such additional time as may be reasonably necessary for Landlord to cure, provided Landlord commences to cure within such 30-day period and diligently prosecutes such cure to completion. If a Landlord Failure results in an imminent, material threat to persons or Tenants property at the Premises, the Reminder Notice must so state and if Landlord fails to cure such Landlord Failure, then Tenant may, subject to the terms of this paragraph, perform such cure with respect to the Premises. Except to the extent specifically set forth otherwise in this paragraph, in no event shall Tenant have the right to terminate or cancel this Lease, withhold or abate rent, or setoff any claim for damages against Rent as a result of any default or breach by Landlord of its covenants or obligations or any representations, warranties, or promises hereunder. In effecting such cure, Tenant shall not take or permit to be taken any action or omission that could jeopardize the effectiveness of the roof, HVAC, or other warranties for the Building, or otherwise affect any Building system. All actions taken by Tenant to cure a Landlord Failure pursuant to this paragraph must be in accordance with all Laws. Tenant may use only contractors who are duly licensed in the State, perform such work in comparable buildings in the normal course of their business, charge rates that are reasonable and competitive, and are reasonably approved by Landlord. Upon commencing such work, Tenants contractors must complete the cure within a reasonable period of time, and in a good and workmanlike manner. Prior to commencing any such work, Tenant must cause its contractors and subcontractors to provide to Landlord certificates evidencing adequate insurance coverage naming Landlord and any other associated or affiliated entity as addition insureds. Tenant shall indemnify, defend, protect, and hold harmless Landlord from and against any and all loss, cost, damage, or liability incurred by Landlord arising out of or from or related to Tenants performance of any such cure, including, without limitation, claims made by other occupants of the Building that Tenants performance of such work interfered with their occupancy of space in the Building. Upon Tenants cure of the Landlord Failure, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for Tenants reasonable, out-of-pocket, third-party costs incurred in curing the Landlord Failure within 30 days after Landlords receipt of an Invoice for such costs (with such back-up documentation as Landlord might reasonably request). An Invoice means a detailed notice of the work completed and the materials used, all reasonably requested lien waivers, together with a schedule of all costs expended by Tenant in performing such work. An Objection means a written objection by Landlord to the payment of such Invoice setting forth with reasonable particularity Landlords reasons for its claim that such action did not have to be taken by Landlord pursuant to this Lease or that the charges set forth on the Invoice(s) are excessive or otherwise not complete. If Landlord delivers an Objection to Tenant and if such parties are not able to resolve any dispute regarding Tenants Invoice or Landlords Objection within 30 days after Tenant receives such Objection, then Tenant may pay amounts due to Landlord under this Lease into an escrow account until such Invoice and any Objection thereto are satisfactorily resolved by the parties or by a court of competent jurisdiction.
(l) If there is an Event of Default, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages. However, Landlord shall not be required to give any special preference or priority to reletting the Premises over other vacant space in the Building, Landlord shall be deemed to have used commercially reasonable efforts if it uses the same efforts in marketing the Premises as used in marketing other vacant space at the Building. Any damages to which Landlord is entitled pursuant to this Section 17 shall be reduced by any Transfer Profit paid by Tenant to Landlord.
18. SURRENDER: HOLDOVER.
(a) By no later than the Expiration Date or earlier termination of Tenants right to possession of the Premises (such earlier date, the Surrender Date). Tenant shall vacate and surrender the Premises to Landlord in good order and condition, free of all Transferees, vacant, broom clean, and in conformity with the applicable provisions of this Lease, including without limitation Sections 9 and 11. Tenant shall have no right to hold over beyond the Surrender Date, and if Tenant does not vacate as required such failure shall be deemed an Event of Default and Tenants occupancy shall not be construed to effect or constitute anything other than a tenancy at sufferance. During any period of occupancy beyond the Surrender Date, the amount of Fixed Rent owed by Tenant to Landlord will be the Holdover Percentage of the Fixed Rent for the month immediately prior to the Expiration Date, without prorating for any partial month of holdover in excess of five (5) days, and except that any provisions in this Lease that limit the amount or defer the payment of Additional Rent are null and void (and Tenant shall remain liable for 100% of all Additional Rent). The Holdover Percentage equals: (i) 150% for the first two (2) months of holdover; and (ii) 200% for any period of holdover beyond two (2) months. The acceptance of Rent by Landlord or the failure or delay of
Landlord in notifying or evicting Tenant following the Surrender Date shall not create any tenancy rights in Tenant and any such payments by Tenant may be applied by Landlord against its costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees, incurred by Landlord as a result of such holdover. The provisions of this Section shall not constitute a waiver by Landlord of any right of reentry as set forth in this Lease; nor shall receipt of any Rent or any other act in apparent affirmance of the tenancy operate as a waiver of Landlords right to terminate this Lease for a breach of any of the terms, covenants, or obligations herein on Tenants part to be performed. No option to extend this Lease shall have been deemed to have occurred by Tenants holdover, and any and all options to extend this Lease or expand the Premises shall be deemed terminated and of no further effect as of the first date that Tenant holds over. In addition, if Tenant fails to vacate and surrender the Premises as herein required by the Surrender Date, Tenant shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Landlord from and against any and all costs, losses, expenses, or liabilities incurred, as a result of or related to such failure, including without limitation, claims made by any succeeding tenant and real estate brokers claims and reasonable attorneys fees; provided, however, Tenants indemnification obligation under this sentence shall not include indirect or consequential damages unless and until Tenant holds over for 60 or more days. Tenants obligation to pay Rent and to perform all other Lease obligations for the period up to and including the Surrender Date, and the provisions of this Section, shall survive the Expiration Date. In no way shall the remedies to Landlord set forth above be construed to constitute liquidated damages for Landlords losses resulting from Tenants holdover.
(b) Prior to the Surrender Date, Tenant, at Tenants expense, shall remove from the Premises Tenants Property (but excluding communication equipment system, wiring, and cabling), and restore in a good and workmanlike manner any damage to the Premises and/or the Building caused by such removal or replace the damaged component of the Premises and/or the Building if such component cannot be restored as aforesaid as reasonably determined by Landlord. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be required to remove a Specialty Alteration if at the time Tenant requests Landlords consent to such Specialty Alteration, Tenant provides Landlord with written notification that Tenant desires to not be required to remove such Specialty Alteration and Landlord consents in writing to Tenants non-removal request. A Specialty Alteration means an Alteration that: (i) Landlord required to be removed in connection with Landlords consent to making such Alteration; or (ii) is not Building standard, including without limitation kitchens (other than a pantry installed for the use of Tenants employees only), executive restrooms, computer room installations, supplemental HVAC equipment and components, safes, vaults, libraries or file rooms requiring reinforcement of floors, internal staircases, slab penetrations, non-Building standard life safety systems, security systems, specialty door locksets (such as cipher locks) or lighting, and any demising improvements done by or on behalf of Tenant after the Commencement Date. For the avoidance of doubt, Tenant shall not be required to remove the internal staircase which is being constructed as part of the Leasehold Improvements unless Tenant downsizes pursuant to Section 29 or otherwise, nor any Alterations other than Specialty Alterations (if required by this Section 18(b)). If Tenant fails to remove any of Tenants Property as and when required herein, the same shall be deemed abandoned and Landlord, at Tenants expense, may remove and dispose of same and repair and restore any damage caused thereby, or, at Landlords election, such Tenants Property shall become Landlords property.
19. RULES AND REGULATIONS. Tenant covenants that Tenant and Tenant Agents shall comply with the rules and regulations set forth on Exhibit E attached hereto. Landlord shall have the right to rescind and/or augment any of the rules and regulations and to make such other and further written rules and regulations as in the reasonable judgment of Landlord shall from time to time be needed for the safety, protection, care, and cleanliness of the Project, the operation thereof, the preservation of good order therein, and the protection and comfort of its tenants, their agents, employees, and invitees, so long as any rescinding or augmentation of the rules and regulations does not materially increase Tenants obligations or materially decrease Tenants rights under this Lease, or materially and adversely change the character of the Building or the Project, which when delivered to Tenant shall be binding upon Tenant in a like manner as if originally prescribed. In the event of an inconsistency between the rules and regulations and this Lease, the provisions of this Lease shall control. Landlord shall not have any liability to Tenant for any failure of any other tenants to comply with any of the rules and regulations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to apply the rules and regulations to, and enforce the rules and regulations against, all tenants of the Building in a nondiscriminatory manner, subject to the terms of applicable leases.
20. GOVERNMENTAL REGULATIONS.
(a) Landlord represents to Tenant that, as of the date of this Lease, to Landlords actual knowledge without independent investigation: (i) the Premises are, and as of the Commencement Date the Premises will be, in material compliance with all Laws; and (ii) there are no hazardous substances on the Premises in violation of environmental Laws, nor will there be as of the Commencement Date. Tenant shall not use, generate, manufacture, refine, transport, treat, store, handle, dispose, bring, or otherwise cause to be brought or permit any Tenant Agent to bring, in, on, or about any part of the Project, any hazardous waste, solid waste, hazardous substance, toxic substance, petroleum product or derivative, asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyl, hazardous material, pollutant, contaminant, or similar material or substance as defined by the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. Sections 9601 et seq., as the same may from time to time be amended, and the regulations promulgated pursuant thereto (CERCLA), or now or hereafter defined or regulated as such by any other Law (Hazardous Material). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall be permitted to bring onto the Premises office cleaning supplies and products normally found in modern offices provided Tenant only brings a reasonable quantity of such supplies and products onto the Premises and Tenant shall at all times comply with all Laws pertaining to the storage, handling, use, disposal, and application of such supplies and products, and all Laws pertaining to the communication to employees and other third parties of any hazards associated with such supplies and products. Tenant shall not cause or permit to exist any release, spillage, emission, or discharge of any Hazardous Material on or about the Premises (Release). In the event of a Release in the Premises, Tenant shall immediately notify Landlord in writing, report such Release to the relevant government agencies as, and if, required by applicable Law, and promptly remove the Hazardous Material and otherwise investigate and remediate the Release in accordance with applicable Law and to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to enter upon the Premises to investigate and/or remediate the Release in lieu of Tenant, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord as Additional Rent for the actual reasonable costs of such remediation and investigation. Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord if Tenant acquires knowledge of the presence of any Hazardous Material on or about the Premises, except as Tenant is permitted to bring onto the Premises under this Lease. Landlord shall have the right to inspect and assess the Premises for the purpose of determining whether Tenant is handling any Hazardous Material in violation of this Lease or applicable Law, or to ascertain the presence of any Release. This subsection shall survive the Expiration Date.
(b) Tenant shall, and shall cause Tenant Agents to, use the Premises in compliance with all applicable Laws. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, promptly comply with each and all of such Laws, except in the case of required structural changes not triggered by Tenants particular use or manner of use or change in use of the Premises, or Tenants Alterations. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant shall: (i) obtain, at Tenants expense, before engaging in Tenants business or profession within the Premises, all necessary licenses and permits including, but not limited to, state and local business licenses, and permits; and (ii) remain in compliance with and keep in full force and effect at all times all licenses, consents, and permits necessary for the lawful conduct of Tenants business or profession at the Premises. Tenant shall pay all personal property taxes, income taxes, gross receipts taxes, and other taxes, assessments, duties, impositions, and similar charges that are or may be assessed, levied, or imposed upon Tenant or Tenants Property. Tenant shall also comply with all applicable Laws that do not relate to the physical condition of the Premises and with which only the occupant can comply, such as laws governing maximum occupancy, workplace smoking, VDT regulations, and illegal business operations, such as gambling. The judgment of any court of competent jurisdiction or the admission of Tenant in any judicial, governmental or regulatory action, regardless of whether Landlord is a party thereto, that Tenant has violated any of such Laws shall be conclusive of that fact as between Landlord and Tenant.
(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, if the requirement of any public authority obligates either Landlord or Tenant to expend money in order to bring the Premises and/or any area of the Project into compliance with Laws as a result of: (i) Tenants particular use (other than general office use) or Alteration of the Premises; (ii) Tenants change in the use of the Premises; (iii) the manner of conduct of Tenants business (other than general office use) or operation of its installations, equipment, or other property therein; or (iv) breach of any of Tenants obligations hereunder, then Tenant shall bear all costs of bringing the Premises and/or Project into compliance with Laws, whether such costs are related to structural or nonstructural elements of the Premises or Project.
(d) Except to the extent Tenant shall comply as set forth above in this Section 21, during the Term Landlord shall comply with all applicable Laws regarding the Project (including the Premises), including without limitation compliance with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990,42 U.S.C. §12181 et seq. and its regulations as to the design and construction of the Common Areas.
(e) Each party hereto hereby acknowledges and agrees that it will not knowingly violate any applicable Laws regarding bribery, corruption, and/or prohibited business practices as they concern each such partys respective activities under or in connection with this Lease, and each such party will be solely responsible for and will hold harmless the other party from and against any claims or liabilities in connection with any of such responsible partys own violations of any such Laws.
21. NOTICES. Wherever in this Lease it is required or permitted that notice or demand be given or served by either party to this Lease to or on the other party, such notice or demand will be duly given or served if in writing and either: (i) personally served; (ii) delivered by prepaid nationally recognized courier service (e.g., Federal Express, UPS, and USPS) with evidence of receipt required for delivery; (iii) delivered by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid; or (iv) if an email address is provided by the recipient, emailed with confirmation of receipt by the recipient; in all such cases addressed to the parties at the addresses set forth below. Each such notice will be deemed to have been given to or served upon the party to which addressed on the date the same is delivered or delivery is refused. Each party has the right to change its address for notices (provided such new address is in the continental United States) by a writing sent to the other party in accordance with this Section, and each party will, if requested, within 10 days confirm to the other its notice address. Notices from Landlord may be given by either an agent or attorney acting on behalf of Landlord.

Landlord and Tenant each represents and warrants to the other that such representing party has had no dealings, negotiations, or consultations with respect to the Premises or this transaction with any broker or finder other than a Landlord affiliate and Broker.

Upon request and without charge, Tenant shall attorn to any successor to Landlords interest in this Lease. Landlord may transfer its interest in the Building without the consent of Tenant, and such transfer or subsequent transfer shall not be deemed a violation on Landlords part of any of the terms of this Lease.

Tenant and Tenant Agents shall look solely to the equity of Landlord in the Building and/or the rents and/or net proceeds actually received therefrom for the satisfaction of any claim, remedy, or cause of action of any kind whatsoever arising from the relationship between the parties or any rights and obligations they may have relating to the Project, this Lease, or anything related to either, including without limitation as a result of the breach of any Section of this Lease by Landlord. In addition, no recourse shall be had for an obligation of Landlord hereunder, or for any claim based thereon or otherwise in respect thereof or the relationship between the parties, against any past, present, or future Landlord Indemnitee (other than Landlord), whether by virtue of any statute or rule of law, or by the enforcement of any assessment or penalty or otherwise, all such other liability being expressly waived and released by Tenant with respect to the Landlord Indemnitees (other than Landlord).
24. RELOCATION. [INTENTIONALLY DELETED]
25. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
(a) Provided Tenant has performed all of the terms and conditions of this Lease to be performed by Tenant, including the payment of Rent, Tenant shall peaceably and quietly hold and enjoy the Premises for the Term, without hindrance from Landlord or anyone lawfully or equitably claiming by, through, or under Landlord, under and subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease and of any deeds of trust now or hereafter affecting all or any portion of the Premises.
(b) Subject to the terms and provisions of Section 10, the respective rights and obligations provided in this Lease shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, their successors and assigns.
(c) This Lease shall be governed in accordance with the Laws of the State, without regard to choice of law principles. Landlord and Tenant hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the jurisdiction in which the Project is located.
(d) In connection with any litigation or arbitration arising out of this Lease, Landlord or Tenant, whichever is the prevailing party as determined by the trier of fact in such litigation, shall be entitled to recover from the other party all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in connection with such litigation, including reasonable attorneys fees. If, in the context of a bankruptcy case, Landlord is compelled at any time to incur any expense, including attorneys fees, in enforcing or attempting to enforce the terms of this Lease or to enforce or attempt to enforce any actions required under the Bankruptcy Code to be taken by the trustee or by Tenant, as debtor-in-possession, then the sum so paid by Landlord shall be awarded to Landlord by the Bankruptcy Court and shall be immediately due and payable by the trustee or by Tenants bankruptcy estate to Landlord in accordance with the terms of the order of the Bankruptcy Court.
(e) This Lease, which by this reference incorporates all exhibits, riders, schedules, and other attachments hereto, supersedes all prior discussions, proposals, negotiations and discussions between the parties and this Lease contains all of the agreements, conditions, understandings, representations, and warranties made between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof, and may not be modified orally or in any manner other than by an agreement in writing signed by both parties hereto or their respective successors-in-interest. Whenever placed before one or more items, the words include, includes, and including shall mean considered as part of a larger group, and not limited to the item(s) recited. Except to the extent expressly set forth otherwise in this Lease, neither Landlord, nor anyone acting on Landlords behalf, has made any representation, warranty, estimation, or promise of any kind or nature whatsoever relating to the physical condition of the Building or the land under the Building or suitability, including without limitation, the fitness of the Premises for Tenants intended use. If any provisions of this Lease are held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions hereof shall in no way be affected or impaired and such remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
(f) TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE UNDER ALL PROVISIONS OF THIS LEASE, INCLUDING ALL NOTICE PROVISIONS.
(g) If Landlord or Tenant is in any way delayed or prevented from performing any obligation (except for payment of any amount due by a party hereunder and the giving of notice with respect to the exercise of a Lease option) due to fire or other casualty (or reasonable delays in the adjustment of insurance claims), acts of terrorism, war or other emergency (including severe weather emergency), governmental delay beyond what is commercially reasonable (provided the party claiming the delay provides reasonable evidence to the other party that the party claiming the delay is diligently pursuing the approval or permit that is the subject to the governmental delay), inability to obtain any materials or services (exclusive of delays in connection with long-lead items requested by Tenant for the Leasehold Improvements, which are covered under Exhibit C, Section 8), acts of God, strike, lockout or other labor dispute, orders or regulations of any federal, state, county or municipal authority, embargoes, or any other cause beyond such partys reasonable control (whether similar or dissimilar to the foregoing events) (each, a Force Majeure Event), then the time for performance of such obligation shall be excused for the period of such delay or prevention (and such party shall not be deemed in default with respect to the performance of its obligations) and extended for a period equal to the period of such delay or prevention. Financial disability or hardship shall never constitute a Force Majeure Event. No such inability or delay due to a Force Majeure Event shall constitute an actual or constructive eviction, in whole or in part, or entitle Tenant to any abatement or diminution of Rent (except as otherwise expressly set forth herein), or relieve the other party from any of its obligations under this Lease, or impose any liability upon such party or its agents, by reason of inconvenience or annoyance to the other party, or injury to or interruption of the other partys business, or otherwise.
(h) Excepting payments of Fixed Rent, Operating Expenses, and utilities (which are to be paid as set forth in Sections 4, 5, and 6) and unless a specific time is otherwise set forth in this Lease for any Tenant payments, all amounts due from Tenant to Landlord shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord as Additional Rent within 60 days after receipt of an invoice therefor.
(i) Unless Tenants financials are publicly available online at no cost to Landlord, within 10 business days after written request by Landlord (but not more than once during any 12-month period unless a default has occurred under this Lease or Landlord has a reasonable basis to suspect that Tenant has suffered a material adverse change in its financial position, or in the event of a sale, financing, or refinancing by Landlord of all or any portion of the Project), Tenant shall furnish to Landlord, Mortgagee, or Landlords prospective mortgagee or purchaser, reasonably requested financial information. In connection therewith and upon Tenants request, Landlord and Tenant shall execute a mutually acceptable confidentiality agreement on Landlords form therefor.
(j) Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that: (i) Tenant was duly organized and is validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of the jurisdiction set forth for Tenant in the first sentence of this Lease; (ii) Tenant is legally authorized to do business in the State; (iii) the person(s) executing this Lease on behalf of Tenant is(are) duly authorized to do so; and (iv) Tenant has the full corporate or partnership power and authority to enter into this Lease and has taken all corporate or partnership action, as the case may be, necessary to carry out the transaction contemplated herein, so that when executed, this Lease constitutes a valid and binding obligation enforceable in accordance with its terms. From time to time upon Landlords request, Tenant will provide Landlord with corporate resolutions or other proof in a form acceptable to Landlord authorizing the execution of this Lease at
the time of such execution. Landlord represents and warrants to Tenant that: (i) Landlord was duly organized and is validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of the jurisdiction set forth for Landlord in the first sentence of this Lease; (ii) Landlord is legally authorized to do business in the State; (iii) the person(s) executing this Lease on behalf of Landlord is(are) duly authorized to do so; and (iv) Landlord has the full corporate or partnership power and authority to enter into this Lease and has taken all corporate or partnership action, as the case may be, necessary to carry out the transaction contemplated herein, so that when executed, this Lease constitutes a valid and binding obligation enforceable in accordance with its terms.
(k) Each party hereto represents and warrants to the other that such party is not a party with whom the other is prohibited from doing business pursuant to the regulations of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, including those parties named on OFACs Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List. Each party hereto is currently in compliance with, and shall at all times during the Term remain in compliance with, the regulations of OFAC and any other governmental requirement relating thereto. Each party hereto shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the other from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, risks, liabilities, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees and costs) incurred by the other to the extent arising from or related to any breach of the foregoing certifications. The foregoing indemnity obligations shall survive the Expiration Date.
(l) Landlord shall have the right, to the extent required to be disclosed by Landlord or Landlords affiliates in connection with filings required by applicable Laws, including without limitation the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), without notice to Tenant to include in such securities filings general information relating to this Lease, including, without limitation, Tenants name, the Building, and the square footage of the Premises. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, neither Tenant nor Landlord shall issue, or permit any broker, representative, or agent representing either party in connection with this Lease to issue: (i) any press release; or (ii) any other public disclosure regarding the specific terms of this Lease (or any amendments or modifications hereof), without the prior written approval of the other party. The parties acknowledge that the transaction described in this Lease and the terms thereof (but not the existence thereof) are of a confidential nature and shall not be disclosed except to such partys employees, attorneys, accountants, consultants, advisors, affiliates, and actual and prospective purchasers, lenders, investors, subtenants and assignees (collectively, Permitted Parties), and except as, in the good faith judgment of Landlord or Tenant, may be required to enable Landlord or Tenant to comply with its obligations under Law or under laws and regulations of the SEC. Neither party may make any public disclosure of the specific terms of this Lease, except as required by Law, including without limitation SEC laws and regulations, or as otherwise provided in this paragraph. In connection with the negotiation of this Lease and the preparation for the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, each party acknowledges that it will have had access to confidential information relating to the other party. Each party shall treat such information and shall cause its Permitted Parties to treat such confidential information as confidential, and shall preserve the confidentiality thereof, and not duplicate or use such information, except by Permitted Parties.
(m) Neither Tenant, nor anyone acting through, under, or on behalf of Tenant, shall have the right to record this Lease, nor any memorandum, notice, affidavit, or other writing with respect thereto.
(n) Whenever Tenant is required to obtain Landlords consent pursuant to this Lease or the exhibits hereto, Landlords consent shall not be unreasonably conditioned, withheld, or delayed.
(o) Tenant shall not claim any money damages by way of setoff, counterclaim, or defense, based on any claim that Landlord unreasonably withheld its consent, in which case Tenants sole and exclusive remedy shall be an action for specific performance, injunction, or declaratory judgment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a court determines that Landlord acted maliciously or in bad faith in unreasonably withholding, conditioning, or delaying its consent or approval in an instance where Landlord was obligated not to unreasonably withheld, condition, or delay its consent or approval, then the limitation on damages and remedies provided for in this paragraph shall have no further application.
(p) All requests made to Landlord to perform repairs or furnish services, supplies, utilities, or freight elevator usage (if applicable), shall be made online to the extent available (currently such requests shall be made via http://etenants.com/, as the same may be modified by Landlord from time to time) otherwise via email or written communication to Landlords property manager for the Building. Whenever Tenant requests Landlord to take
any action not required of Landlord under this Lease or give any consent required or permitted to be given by Landlord under this Lease (for example, a request for a Transfer consent, a consent to an Alteration, or a subordination of Landlords lien, but other than a request for services, supplies, or utilities which is governed by Section 7(b)), Tenant shall pay to Landlord for Landlords administrative and/or professional costs in connection with each such action or consent Landlords reasonable costs incurred by Landlord in reviewing and taking the proposed action or consent, including reasonable attorneys, engineers and/or architects fees (as applicable). Provided Landlords standard forms are used in connection with the request (to the extent applicable) without material modifications or protracted negotiations, Landlords costs shall not exceed $2,500 per request for the Initial Term. The foregoing amount shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord within 60 days after Landlords delivery to Tenant of an invoice for such amount. Tenant shall pay such amount without regard to whether Landlord takes the requested action or gives the requested consent.
(q) Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord shall not be considered a business associate for any purpose under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and all related implementing regulations and guidance.
(r) Tenant shall cause any work performed on behalf of Tenant to be performed by contractors who work in harmony, and shall not interfere, with any labor employed by Landlord or Landlords contractors. If at any time any of the contractors performing work on behalf of Tenant does not work in harmony or interferes with any labor employed by Landlord, other tenants, or their respective mechanics or contractors, then the permission granted by Landlord to Tenant to do or cause any work to be done in or about the Premises may be withdrawn by Landlord with 48 hours written notice to Tenant.
(s) This Lease may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when taken together shall be deemed to be one and the same instrument. The submission of this Lease by Landlord to Tenant for examination does not constitute a reservation of or option for the Premises or of any other space within the Building or in other buildings owned or managed by Landlord or its affiliates. This Lease shall not be binding nor shall either party have any obligations or liabilities or any rights with respect hereto, or with respect to the Premises, unless and until both parties have executed and delivered this Lease. The parties acknowledge and agree that notwithstanding any law or presumption to the contrary, the exchange of copies of this Lease and signature pages by electronic transmission shall constitute effective, execution and delivery of this Lease for all purposes, and signatures of the parties hereto transmitted and/or produced electronically shall be deemed to be their original signature for all purposes.
(t) Landlord and persons authorized by Landlord may enter the Premises for any commercially reasonable purpose at all reasonable times upon reasonable advance notice or, in the case of an emergency, at any time without notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall not show the Premises to prospective tenants prior to the last 12 months of the Term, and Tenant shall have the right to have a Tenant employee accompany Landlords representative. Landlord shall not be liable for inconvenience to or disturbance of Tenant by reason of any such entry; provided, however, in the case of repairs or work, such shall be done, so far as practicable, so as to not unreasonably interfere with Tenants use of the Premises.
(u) If more than one person executes this Lease as Tenant, each of them is jointly and severally liable for the keeping, observing, and performing of all of the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions, and agreements of this Lease to be kept, observed, and performed by Tenant.
(v) TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, LANDLORD AND TENANT HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING, OR COUNTERCLAIM BROUGHT BY EITHER AGAINST THE OTHER ON ANY MATTER ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS LEASE, THE RELATIONSHIP OF LANDLORD AND TENANT, OR TENANTS USE OR OCCUPANCY OF THE BUILDING, ANY CLAIM OR INJURY OR DAMAGE, OR ANY EMERGENCY OR OTHER STATUTORY REMEDY WITH RESPECT THERETO. TENANT CONSENTS TO SERVICE OF PROCESS AND ANY PLEADING RELATING TO ANY SUCH ACTION AT THE PREMISES; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, NOTHING HEREIN SHALL BE CONSTRUED AS REQUIRING SUCH SERVICE AT THE PREMISES. TENANT WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO RAISE ANY NONCOMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIM IN ANY SUMMARY OR EXPEDITED ACTION OR PROCEEDING INSTITUTED BY LANDLORD. LANDLORD, TENANT, ALL GUARANTORS, AND ALL GENERAL PARTNERS EACH WAIVES ANY OBJECTION TO THE VENUE OF ANY ACTION FILED IN ANY COURT SITUATED IN THE JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE BUILDING IS LOCATED, AND WAIVES ANY RIGHT, CLAIM, OR POWER UNDER THE DOCTRINE OF FORUM NON CONVENIENS OR OTHERWISE TO TRANSFER ANY SUCH ACTION TO ANY OTHER COURT.
(w) Except in connection with a Tenant holdover beyond 60 days or Section 17(b)(i), and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, each party waives, and the other shall not be liable to the waiving party for, any claim against the other party or the other partys agents, invitees, employees, or contractors, for loss of business opportunity, loss of profits, loss of income, economic loss, consequential damages, or punitive damages; the foregoing waiver shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.
26. EXTENSION OPTIONS.
(a) Provided: (i) no Event of Default exists; and (ii) this Lease is in full force and effect, Tenant shall have the right to extend the Term (Extension Option) with respect to the Extension Premises for up to 2 consecutive terms of 60 months each beyond the end of the Initial Term (each an Extension Term) by delivering Tenants written extension election notice to Landlord no later than 12 months prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or the then-current Extension Term (Extension Deadline) but no earlier than 15 months prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or the then-current Extension Term, as applicable. The Extension Premises means, as designated by Tenant in its notice of extension, either all of the Premises or that portion of the Premises containing at least 1 full floor of the Building, provided Tenant and Landlord shall mutually agree on the location of such portion to the extent any portion consists of less than an entire floor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenants notice of extension is silent as to the designation of the Extension Premises, then Tenant shall be deemed to have designated all of the Premises to be the Extension Premises. The terms and conditions of this Lease during each Extension Term shall remain unchanged except Tenant shall only be entitled to the 2 Extension Terms provided above, the annual Fixed Rent for the applicable Extension Term shall be the Extension Rent (as defined below), the Expiration Date shall be the last day of the Extension Term (or such earlier date of termination of this Lease pursuant to the terms hereof), and, except to the extent reflected in the Extension Rent, Landlord shall have no obligation to perform any tenant improvements to the Extension Premises or provide any tenant improvement allowance to Tenant. Upon Tenants delivery of its written extension election notice, Tenant may not thereafter revoke its exercise of the Extension Option. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Tenant shall have no right to extend the Term other than or beyond the 2, 60-month Extension Terms described in this paragraph.
(b) Extension Rent means ninety-five percent (95%) of the fair market extension term base rent for space comparable to the Extension Premises in comparable buildings in the market in which the Project is located. In determining the Extension Rent, Landlord, Tenant and any broker shall take into account all relevant factors including, without limitation, prevailing market allowances and concessions for renewing tenants, space measurement methods and loss factors, the lease term, the size of the space, the location of the building(s), the amenities offered at the building(s), the age of the building(s), and whether Project Expenses and other pass-through expenses are on a triple net, base year, expense stop or other basis. In lieu of directly providing any prevailing market allowances and/or concessions, Landlord may elect to reduce the Extension Rent by the economic equivalent thereof to reflect the fact that such allowances and concessions were not provided directly to Tenant. During the Extension Term, Tenant shall not be entitled to any tenant improvement allowances, free rent periods or other economic concessions (if any) that Tenant was entitled to during the prior Term, except to the extent such items are factored into the Extension Rent as set forth in this Section. When the Extension Rent is being determined for the first year of the Extension Term, the Extension Rent for the second and all subsequent years of the Extension Term shall also be determined in accordance with the same procedures as are set forth herein and based upon the then prevailing annual rent escalation factor in the applicable leasing market.
(c) If Tenant timely exercises an Extension Option and Landlord and Tenant do not agree upon the Extension Rent in writing by the date that is the later of 20 days after Landlords receipt of Tenants extension notice or 3 months prior to the Extension Deadline, then within 15 days after either party notifies the other in writing that such notifying party desires to determine the Extension Rent in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section, Landlord and Tenant shall each deliver to the other party a written statement of such delivering partys determination of the Extension Rent, together with such supporting documentation as the delivering party desires to deliver. Within 10 days after such 15-day period, Landlord and Tenant shall appoint a real estate broker having a minimum of 10 years experience in the market in which the Project is located who shall select either Landlords
determination or Tenants determination, whichever the broker finds more accurately reflects the Extension Rent. The broker shall be instructed to notify Landlord and Tenant of such selection within 10 days after such brokers appointment. The broker shall have no power or authority to select any Extension Rent other than the Extension Rent submitted by Landlord or Tenant nor shall the broker have any power or authority to modify any of the provisions of this Lease, and the decision of the broker shall be final and binding upon Landlord and Tenant. If Landlord and Tenant do not timely agree in writing upon the appointment of the broker, Landlord and Tenant shall each select a broker, who together will select a third qualified broker with a minimum of 10 years experience in the market in which the Project is located, who will determine the Extension Rent. If either party fails to timely notify the other party of its selection, the party that did not fail to notify of its election shall have the right to unilaterally appoint the broker. The fee and expenses of the broker shall be shared equally by Landlord and Tenant.
(d) Upon Tenants timely and proper exercise of an Extension Option pursuant to the terms above and satisfaction of the above conditions: (i) the Term shall include the Extension Term; (ii) the Premises for each Extension Term shall be the applicable Extension Premises; and (iii) upon Landlords request, Tenant shall execute prior to the expiration of the then-expiring Term, an appropriate amendment to this Lease, in form and content reasonably satisfactory to both Landlord and Tenant, memorializing the extension of the Term for the ensuing Extension Term (provided either partys failure to execute such amendment shall not negate the effectiveness of Tenants exercise of the Extension Option).
27. TERMINATION OPTION. Provided: (i) no Event of Default exists; (ii) this Lease is in full force and effect; and (iii) Tenant is the originally named Tenant or a Permitted Transferee, Tenant has the right to terminate this Lease effective at 11:59 p.m. on the Termination Date, in accordance with and subject to each of the following terms and conditions (Termination Option). The Termination Date means the last day of the 60th or 84th full calendar month after the Fixed Rent Start Date, as elected by Tenant in its Termination Notice. If Tenant desires to exercise the Termination Option, Tenant must give to Landlord irrevocable written notice of Tenants exercise of the Termination Option (Termination Notice), together with the Termination Payment (as defined below). The Termination Notice and the Termination Payment must be received by Landlord no later than the date that is 24 months prior to the applicable Termination Date (Termination Notice/Payment Due Date), failing which the Termination Option is deemed waived (provided Landlord reserves the right to waive in writing the requirement that Tenant fully and/or timely pay the Termination Payment). The Termination Payment means the sum of the unamortized (amortized on a straight-line basis with interest at 7%) amount as of the Termination Date of the following in connection with this Lease and any amendment to this Lease: (i) brokerage commissions and attorneys fees paid by Landlord; and (ii) any and all allowances to Tenant, including without limitation the Improvement Allowance (as defined in Exhibit C). Tenants payment of the Termination Payment is a condition precedent to the termination of this Lease on the Termination Date, and such obligation survives the Expiration Date. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the Termination Payment is not a penalty and is fair and reasonable compensation to Landlord for the loss of expected rentals from Tenant. The Termination Payment is payable only by wire transfer or cashiers check. Time is of the essence with respect to the dates and deadlines set forth herein. As of the date Tenant delivers the Termination Notice, any and all unexercised rights or options of Tenant to extend the Term or expand the Premises (whether expansion options, rights of first refusal, rights of first offer, or otherwise), and any and all outstanding tenant improvement allowance not properly claimed by Tenant in accordance with this Lease shall immediately terminate and are automatically, without further action required by any party, null and void and of no force or effect. If Tenant timely and properly exercises the Termination Option in accordance with this paragraph, this Lease and the Term shall come to an end on the Termination Date with the same force and effect as if the Term were fixed to expire on such date, the Expiration Date shall be the Termination Date, and the terms and provisions of Section 18 shall apply. Upon Tenants request after the Commencement Date, Landlord shall notify Tenant of its calculation of the Termination Payment. If Tenant requests in writing Landlords calculation of the Termination Payment at least 30 days prior to the applicable Termination Notice/Payment Due Date, and Landlord fails to provide the calculation of the Termination Payment on or prior to the date which is five (5) business days prior to applicable Termination Notice/Payment Due Date, then Tenant shall have until the date that is five (5) business days after Landlord provides the calculation of the Termination Payment to deliver the Termination Notice and Termination Payment to Landlord.
28. RIGHT OF FIRST OFFER.
(a) Provided: (i) no Event of Default exists; and (ii) this Lease is in full force and effect, Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing (Landlords ROFO Notice) when any rentable space located on the 9th or 11th floor of the Building (Potential RQFO Space) becomes available for lease (as defined below) from Landlord or Landlord reasonably anticipates that such space will become available for lease from Landlord prior to the last 24 months of the Term (as the same may have been extended). Landlords ROFO Notice shall identify the portion of the Potential ROFO Space that is available to lease (such identified space, ROFO Space), and include the anticipated availability date and basic economic terms for the lease of the ROFO Space (which terms shall reflect that the term for the ROFO Space will be coterminous with the Term for the Premises) and, subject to the terms and provisions of this Section, Tenant shall have the one-time right (ROFO) to lease all (but not less than all) of the ROFO Space by delivering Tenants written notice of such election to Landlord (Tenants ROFO Notice) within 10 days after Tenants receipt of Landlords ROFO Notice.
(b) Upon Tenants delivery of Tenants ROFO Notice, Tenant may not thereafter revoke Tenants exercise of the ROFO. If an Event of Default exists at any time after Landlord receives Tenants ROFO Notice but before the first day that Tenant commences to lease the ROFO Space, Landlord, at Landlords option, shall have the right to nullify Tenants exercise of the ROFO with respect to the ROFO Space. If Tenant notifies Landlord that Tenant elects not to lease the ROFO Space or if Tenant fails to timely deliver Tenants ROFO Notice to Landlord with respect thereto, then Landlord shall have the right to enter into a lease agreement(s) for the ROFO Space under one or more leases containing such terms as Landlord deems acceptable in Landlords reasonable discretion, and the ROFO shall be void and have no further force or effect with respect to such space; provided, however: (i) the ROFO shall survive with respect to the balance of the Potential ROFO Space such that following receipt of a subsequent written request from Tenant, Landlord shall send a Landlords ROFO Notice when Potential ROFO Space becomes available for lease or Landlord reasonably anticipates that such space will become available for lease from Landlord prior to the last 24 months of the Term (as the same may have been extended); and (ii) if Landlord either fails to enter into a lease for the ROFO Space within 6 months after Tenants waiver or deemed waiver of the ROFO, or desires to enter into a lease for the ROFO Space on economic terms that are 10% (or more) more favorable in the aggregate than those terms that were set forth in Landlords ROFO Notice, then Landlord shall be required to submit a new Landlords ROFO Notice to Tenant prior to leasing the ROFO Space to any third party.
(c) The ROFO shall be subject, subordinate, and in all respects inferior to the rights of any third-party tenant leasing space at the Building as of the date of this Lease that have existing rights in their existing leases to the ROFO Space; those tenants are: Ernst & Young U.S. LLP, Gallagher Benefit Services, Inc., Macquarie Holdings (U.S.A.), Inc., Marks Paneth LLP, and Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company. Space is available to lease if and when the lease for any tenant of all or a portion of the space expires or is otherwise terminated, provided space shall not be deemed to be or become available if the space is assigned or subleased by the tenant of the space, or relet by the tenant or subtenant of the space by renewal, extension, or new lease.
(d) Except to the extent expressly set forth in Landlords ROFO Notice to the contrary, if Tenant elects to lease the ROFO Space, such space shall become subject to this Lease upon the same terms and conditions as are then applicable to the original Premises, except that Tenant shall take the ROFO Space in AS IS condition and Landlord shall have no obligation to make any improvements or alterations to the ROFO Space, and the term of Tenants lease of the ROFO Space shall be coterminous with the Term. Landlord shall determine the exact location of any demising walls (if any) for the ROFO Space. Tenant shall not be entitled to any tenant improvement allowances, free rent periods, or other special concessions granted to Tenant with respect to the original Premises. Upon Tenants leasing of the ROFO Space, the Premises shall include the ROFO Space and, except as otherwise set forth in this Section, all computations made under this Lease based upon or affected by the rentable area of the Premises shall be recomputed to include the ROFO Space.
(e) If Tenant timely exercises its right to lease the ROFO Space: (i) Tenants lease of the ROFO Space shall commence upon the later of: (A) the date of availability specified in Landlords ROFO Notice; or (B) 180 days following the date Landlord tenders possession of the ROFO Space in vacant condition; and (ii) upon Landlords request, Tenant shall execute an appropriate new lease or amendment, in form and content reasonably satisfactory to both Landlord and Tenant, memorializing the expansion of the Premises as set forth in this Section (provided Landlord or Tenants failure to execute such lease or amendment shall not negate the effectiveness of Tenants exercise of the ROFO).
29. CONTRACTION OPTION. Provided, as of the date on which the Contract Notice is delivered: (i) there is no Event of Default and (ii) this Lease is in full force and effect, Tenant has the right to terminate this Lease with respect to the Contraction Premises effective at 11:59 p.m. on the Contraction Date, in accordance with and subject to each of the following terms and conditions (Contraction Option). The Contraction Date means the date designated as such by Tenant in its Contraction Notice, provided such date is either the last day of the 36th, 72nd, or 108th full calendar month after the Fixed Rent Start Date. The Contraction Premises means, as designated by Tenant in its Contraction Notice, either all of Suite 1100 or a portion of Suite 1100 mutually agreed to by Landlord and Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Contraction Notice is silent as to the designation of the Contraction Premises, then Tenant shall be deemed to have designated all of Suite 1100 to be the Contraction Premises. If Tenant desires to exercise the Contraction Option, Tenant must give to Landlord irrevocable written notice of Tenants exercise of the Contraction Option (Contraction Notice), and pay Landlord the Contraction Payment (as defined below) as and when required below. The Contraction Notice and the Contraction Payment must be received by Landlord no later than the date that is 12 months prior to the Contraction Date (Contraction Notice/Payment Due Date), failing which the Contraction Option is deemed waived (provided Landlord reserves the right to waive in writing the requirement that Tenant fully and/or timely pay the Contraction Payment). The Contraction Payment means the sum of the unamortized (amortized on a straight-line basis with interest at 7% per annum) amount as of the Contraction Date of the following with respect to the Contraction Premises in connection with this Lease and any amendment to this Lease: (i) brokerage commissions paid by Landlord; and (ii) any and all allowances paid to Tenant, including without limitation the Improvement Allowance (as defined in Exhibit C). Tenants payment of the Contraction Payment is a condition precedent to the termination of this Lease with respect to the Contraction Premises on the Contraction Date, and such obligation survives the Expiration Date. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the Contraction Payment is not a penalty and is fair and reasonable compensation to Landlord for the loss of expected rentals from Tenant. The Contraction Payment is payable only by wire transfer or cashiers check. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if Tenant exercises the Contraction Option and the internal staircase between Suite 1000 and Suite 1100 is located within the Contraction Premises, then Tenant shall be solely responsible for removing such staircase at Tenants sole cost and expense by no later than the Contraction Date. Time is of the essence with respect to the dates and deadlines set forth herein. If Tenant timely and properly exercises the Contraction Option in accordance with this paragraph, this Lease and the Term shall come to an end on the Contraction Date with respect to the Contraction Premises only, with the same force and effect as if the Term with respect to the Contraction Premises were fixed to expire on such date, the Expiration Date with respect to the Contraction Premises shall be the Contraction Date, and the terms and provisions of Section 18 shall apply to the Contraction Premises. Upon Tenants request after the Commencement Date, Landlord shall notify Tenant of its calculation of the Contraction Payment. If Tenant requests in writing Landlords calculation of the Contraction Payment at least 30 days prior to the applicable Contraction Notice/Payment Due Date, and Landlord fails to provide the calculation of the Contraction Payment on or prior to the date which is five (5) business days prior to applicable Contraction Notice/Payment Due Date, then Tenant shall have until the date that is five (5) business days after Landlord provides the calculation of the Contraction Payment to deliver the Contraction Notice and Contraction Payment to Landlord.

8. Tenant Delay. In the event of Tenant Delay, Substantial Completion shall be deemed to be the date Substantial Completion would have occurred but for Tenant Delays.

Tenant and its contractors shall coordinate all activities with Landlord in advance and in writing, and shall comply with Landlords instructions and directions so that Tenants early entry does not interfere with or delay any work to be performed by Landlord. Any delay resulting from Early Access, including without limitation due to a Tenant vendors work delaying Landlords ability to obtain its permits, shall be deemed a Tenant Delay.
(a) Improvement Allowance. Landlord shall provide the Improvement Allowance to Tenant in accordance with this Exhibit. Improvement Allowance means an amount equal to the product of $100.00 multiplied by the total rentable square footage of the Premises, which product equals $4,405,700.00. The Improvement Allowance shall be applied solely towards payment of the Improvement Costs, but specifically excluding costs for Tenants Equipment, cabling, moving, utilities, and movable furniture, fixtures, or equipment that has no permanent connection to the structure of the Building. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, after payment in full of the Improvement Costs, there are unused Improvement Allowance dollars and no Event of Default, then by written notice to Landlord received no later than the 12-month anniversary of the Commencement Date, Tenant may apply up to $440,570.00 of the Improvement Allowance towards the actual and reasonable, out-of-pocket, documented costs incurred by Tenant for moving to the Premises, furniture fixtures and equipment, and voice and data cabling expenses (Reimbursable Costs). Subject to the preceding sentence, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant up to the total Reimbursable Costs within 60 days after Landlords receipt of an invoice therefor (no more frequently than once per month) together with reasonable supporting documentation, evidence of payment in full by Tenant, and unconditional lien waivers (on Landlords form therefor). Any portion of the Reimbursable Costs for which Tenant has not submitted an invoice for reimbursement on or before the 12-month anniversary of the Commencement Date shall be deemed waived by Tenant and will not be paid to Tenant or credited against Rent. Tenant shall mark and tag all cabling installed by it or on its behalf by no later than Substantial Completion, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, shall surrender such cabling with the Premises by no later than the Surrender Date. Improvement Costs means the sum of: (i) the Planning Costs; (ii) the Construction Costs; and (iii) Construction Management Fee (as defined in Section 10(b) below). Planning Costs means all actual, reasonable, documented, third-party costs incurred by Tenant and directly related to the design of the Leasehold Improvements including, without limitation, the professional fees of any engineers, consultants, architects, and/or space planners and other professionals preparing and/or reviewing the CDs. If, as of the 12-month anniversary of the Commencement Date, any portion of the Improvement Allowance remains unused, the Improvement Allowance shall be deemed reduced by such unused amount, and Landlord shall retain such undisbursed portion of the Improvement Allowance which shall be deemed waived by Tenant and shall not be paid to Tenant, credited against Rent, or applied to Tenants moving costs or prior lease obligations.
(b) Construction Management Fee. Tenant must pay the Construction Management Fee to Landlord as compensation for Landlords construction management services under this Exhibit. Construction Management Fee means a fixed fee in the amount of Forty-Four Thousand Fifty-Seven and 00/100 Dollars ($44,057.00). Landlord may deduct all or a portion of Construction Management Fee from the Improvement Allowance, and/or invoice Tenant therefor if the entirety of the Improvement Allowance has been expended, payable to Landlord within 60 days after the date of such invoice.
(c) Excess Costs. Tenant shall be solely responsible for all Improvement Costs in excess of the Improvement Allowance (Excess Costs). Landlord may issue a TEA for Excess Costs, after the Improvement Allowance is exhausted. Tenant shall pay Excess Costs to Landlord within 60 days after receipt of an invoice therefor from time to time, provided Landlord shall have the right to invoice Tenant with respect to particular components of the Leasehold Improvements and the applicable amount of Excess Costs (as reasonably determined by Landlord) upon substantial completion of such component. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if the requirement of any public authority obligates either Landlord or Tenant to expend money in order to bring the Premises and/or any area of the Project into compliance with Laws solely as a result of the Leasehold Improvements (as opposed to a pre-existing violation), then Tenant shall bear all costs of bringing the Premises and/or Project into compliance with Laws, whether such costs are related to structural or nonstructural elements of the Premises or Project.
(d) Rent. If Tenant fails to make any payment when due under this Exhibit, such failure shall be deemed a failure to make a Rent payment under the Lease. Landlord shall have no obligation to make a disbursement from the Improvement Allowance if, at the time such disbursement is to be made, there exists an uncured monetary default under the Lease.
These specifications are subject to change without notice. The cost for any cleaning over and above the standard cleaning specifications are to be paid by tenant.
