Floor Plan for Suite 820 Expansion Space
LEASEHOLD IMPROVEMENTS AGREEMENT
(Suite 820 Expansion Space)
1. Following the delivery of possession of the Suite 820 Expansion Space to Lessee, Lessee shall have the right to refurbish the Suite 820 Expansion Space to Lessees specifications (the Lessee Improvements), but only in accordance with the provisions of this Leasehold Improvements Agreement. Lessee and its contractors shall not have the right to perform Lessee Improvements in the Suite 820 Expansion Space unless and until Lessee has written approval by Lessor of (a) the final plans for the Lessee Improvements, (b) the contractors to be retained by Lessee to perform such Lessee Improvements, and (c) the insurance coverage obtained by Lessee and its contractors in connection with the Lessee Improvements. Lessee shall be responsible for all elements of the plans for the Lessee Improvements (including, without limitation, compliance with law, functionality of design, the structural integrity of the design, the configuration of the Suite 820 Expansion Space and the placement of Lessees furniture, appliances and equipment), and Lessors approval of such plans shall in no event relieve Lessee of the responsibility therefor. Lessors approval of the contractors to perform the Lessee Improvements shall not be unreasonably withheld. Lessors approval of the general contractor to perform the Lessee Improvements shall not be considered to be unreasonably withheld if any such general contractor (i) does not have trade references reasonably acceptable to Lessor, (ii) does not maintain insurance as required by Lessor, (iii) does not have the ability to be bonded for the work in an amount satisfactory to Lessor, (iv) does not provide current financial statements reasonably acceptable to Lessor, or (v) is not licensed as a contractor in the state and municipality in which the Leased Premises are located. Lessee acknowledges the foregoing is not intended to be an exclusive list of the reasons why Lessor may reasonably withhold its consent to a general contractor.
2. Promptly after obtaining Lessors approval of the plans for the Lessee Improvements and before commencing construction of the Lessee Improvements, Lessee shall deliver to Lessor a reasonably detailed estimate of the cost of the Lessee Improvements. If the cost of the Lessee Improvements exceeds the Construction Allowance (hereinafter defined), Lessee shall be solely responsible for the difference. Lessee shall pay to Lessor, within ten (10) days after Lessors written demand, a construction fee equal to five percent (5%) of the cost of the Lessee Improvements to compensate Lessor for reviewing the plans for the Lessee Improvements and for costs incurred by Lessor in facilitating completion of the Lessee Improvements. Lessor reserves the right to deduct such fee from the Construction Allowance.
3. Provided Lessee is not in default at the time of any request for payment, Lessor agrees to contribute up to Four Thousand Eight Hundred Forty and 00/100 Dollars ($4,840.00) (the Construction Allowance) toward the cost of performing the Lessee Improvements. The Construction Allowance may only be used for hard costs in connection with the Lessee Improvements. The Construction Allowance shall be paid to Lessee or, at Lessors option, to the order of the general contractor that performed the Lessee Improvements, within thirty (30) days following receipt by Lessor of the following documentation (1) receipted bills covering all labor and materials expended and used in the Lessee Improvements; and (2) full and final waivers of lien. The Construction Allowance shall be disbursed in the amount reflected on the receipted bills meeting the requirements above. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Lessor shall not be obligated to disburse any portion of the Construction Allowance during the continuance of an uncured default under the Lease, and Lessors obligation to disburse shall only resume when and if such default is cured. In no event shall the Construction Allowance be used for the purchase of equipment, furniture or other items of personal property of Lessee. In the event Lessee does not submit to Lessor a written request for payment of the entire Construction Allowance (together with all of the documents and certificates required for such payment) within six (6) months after the Suite 820
Commencement Date, any portion of the Construction Allowance not disbursed to Lessee shall accrue to the sole benefit of Lessor, it being understood that Lessee shall not be entitled to any credit, abatement or other concession in connection therewith. In the event of Lessees default at the time of any request for payment of the Construction Allowance, Lessor may withhold payment until Lessees cure of the default.
4. Lessee shall be responsible for all applicable state sales or use taxes, if any, payable in connection with the Lessee Improvements and/or Construction Allowance.
5. In performing construction of Lessee Improvements, Lessee shall, with regard to the construction of Lessee Improvements, be bound by each and every term of the Lease Agreement. Without in any way limiting the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 5, the following provisions shall be applicable to Lessees obligation to construct Lessee Improvements:

All such evidence of insurance must be submitted to and approved by Lessor prior to commencement of construction of Lessee Improvements.
Prior to the execution of the construction contract for the construction of Lessee Improvements, Lessee shall submit the proposed form thereof to Lessor for Lessors review and acceptance.

All doors, light fixtures, ceiling tiles and other improvements in the Suite 820 Expansion Space having building standard specifications shall comply with such specifications.

Lessee will cause Lessees contractors to promptly remove from the Buildings, by use of their own trash containers, all rubbish, dirt, debris and flammable waste, as well as all unused construction materials, equipment, shipping containers and packaging generated by Lessee Improvements; neither Lessee nor Lessees contractors shall be permitted to deposit any such materials in Lessors trash containers or elsewhere in the Buildings storage of construction materials, tools, equipment and debris shall be confined within the Suite 820 Expansion Space.
Lessor shall not be liable for any injury, loss or damage to any of Lessee Improvements or other installations.
Lessee shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessor from and against any and all costs, expenses, claims, liabilities and causes of action arising out of or in connection with work performed by or on behalf of Lessee or Lessees contractors.
Notwithstanding the fact that Lessor shall be a third party beneficiary of any and all warranties under the contract for construction of Lessee Improvements and any and all warranties applicable to Lessee Improvements at law or in equity, Lessor shall in no way be responsible for the function and/or maintenance of Lessee Improvements.
