2. Lease Grant. Subject to the terms of this Lease, Landlord hereby leases to Tenant, and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord, the Premises. Tenant shall have access to the Premises seven (7) days per week, twenty-four (24) hours per day, every day of the year, subject to such after-Normal Business Hour security procedures as Landlord may require.
(a) AS IS Condition. Tenant acknowledges that: (i) it has been advised by Landlord, Landlords broker and Tenants broker to satisfy itself with respect to the condition of the Premises (including the Buildings Systems located therein, and the security and environmental aspects thereof) and the present and future suitability of the Premises for Tenants intended use; (ii) Tenant has made such inspection and investigation as it deems necessary with reference to such matters and assumes all responsibility therefor as the same relate to Tenants occupancy of the Premises; and (iii) neither Landlord nor any of Landlords agents has made any oral or written representations or warranties with respect to the condition, suitability or fitness of the Premises other than as may be specifically set forth in this Lease. Subject to the terms and conditions of Exhibit C, by occupying the Premises, Tenant shall be deemed to have accepted the Premises in its then AS IS condition, subject to all applicable Laws. Tenant further acknowledges that Landlord shall have no obligation to provide or to fund any tenant improvements to the Premises except as may be specifically set forth in this Lease. Landlord and Tenant stipulate that the number of square feet of Rentable Area in the Premises and in the Building set forth in the Basic Lease Information is conclusive as to the square footage in existence on the date of this Lease and shall be binding upon them.
(b) Estimated Delivery Date; Delay in Delivery. Landlord and Tenant presently anticipate that the Delivery Date shall be on or about May 1, 2020 (the Estimated Delivery Date). If Landlord is unable to tender possession of the Premises in the condition required by this Lease to Tenant by the Estimated Delivery Date, then: (1) the validity of this Lease
shall not be affected or impaired thereby; (2) the duration of the Term shall not be affected thereby; (3) Landlord shall not be in default hereunder or be liable for damages therefor; and (4) Tenant shall accept possession of the Premises when Landlord tenders possession thereof to Tenant. Tenants obligation to pay Rent shall begin on the Commencement Date, subject to the abatement of Base Rent provided in the Basic Lease Information. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Lease, if Landlord has not tendered possession of the Premises to Tenant with the Work Substantially Completed within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of mutual execution of this Lease, as the same may be extended due to delays caused by or attributable to Tenant or any Tenant Party, force majeure or any reason outside of Landlords control (such date, as extended, the Outside Delivery Date), then Tenant shall have the right, as its sole remedy, to one day of Base Rent abatement for each day of such delay beyond the Outside Delivery Date until the date Landlord delivers possession of the Premises in the condition required hereunder.
(c) Early Access. Subject to Tenants delivery of an executed original of this Lease, the prepaid Base Rent and the Letter of Credit as required elsewhere in this Lease, and the insurance certificates evidencing Tenants insurance policies required under this Lease, Landlord shall provide Tenant with early access to the Premises on the latest to occur of (i) the first (1st) Business Day following the date of mutual execution and delivery of this Lease, (ii) the first (1st) Business Day following the date on which Landlord determines the Premises is free and clear of any existing tenancy, and (iii) fifteen (15) days prior to Landlords then-estimated date of delivery of the Premises (in any case, the Access Date). Such period of early access shall commence on the Access Date and continue through the date immediately preceding the Commencement Date (the Early Access Period), and Tenants access during the Early Access Period shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Lease, except for Tenants obligation to pay Rent (which obligation shall commence upon the Commencement Date, subject to the abatement of Base Rent provided in the Basic Lease Information). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the conduct of business in the Premises shall cause an immediate acceleration of the Commencement Date to the date of Tenants initial conduct of business in the Premises. During the Early Access Period, Tenant may enter the Premises (but not any other portion of the Building or the Project other than for ingress and egress) for the sole purpose of installing cabling, furniture, fixtures and equipment, provided that Tenant shall be solely responsible for all of the foregoing and for any loss or damage thereto from any cause whatsoever. Such early access and installation shall be permitted only to the extent that such early access and installation activities will not interfere with the access, use and occupancy of the Building or the Project by Landlord or any other tenant or occupant and/or Landlords performance of the Work and/or otherwise delay Landlords delivery of possession of the Premises to Tenant in the condition required under this Lease. The provisions of Sections 8(a) and 11 of this Lease shall apply in full during the Early Access Period, and Tenant shall (x) provide certificates of insurance evidencing the existence and amounts of liability insurance carried by Tenant and its agents and contractors, reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, prior to and as a condition to such early access, and (y) comply with all Laws applicable to such early access work in the Premises. If Landlord reasonably determines that Tenants early access is interfering in any material way with Landlords ability to deliver possession of the Premises in the condition required under this Lease and/or to complete the Work, then Landlord shall have the right to limit or otherwise restrict Tenants access during the Early Access Period without any liability.
(d) Commencement Date Memorandum. Prior to occupying the Premises, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord a letter substantially in the form of Exhibit E hereto confirming: (1) the Commencement Date and the Expiration Date of the initial Term; (2) that Tenant has accepted the Premises; and (3) that Landlord has performed all of its obligations with respect to the Premises (except for punchlist items specified in such letter, if any); provided,
however, that the failure of the parties to execute such letter shall not defer the Commencement Date or otherwise invalidate this Lease. Tenants failure to execute such document (or to provide corrections to factual information set forth therein) within ten (10) days of receipt thereof from Landlord shall be deemed to constitute Tenants agreement to the contents of such document.
(a) Base Rent. Tenant shall timely pay to Landlord Rent without notice, demand, deduction or set-off (except as otherwise expressly provided herein), by good and sufficient check or by ACH, to DC Station Owner, LLC, P.O. BOX 398990, San Francisco, CA 94139-8990, or to such other address as may be specified by Landlord in writing from time to time. The obligations of Tenant to pay Base Rent and other sums to Landlord and the obligations of Landlord under this Lease are independent obligations. Base Rent, adjusted as herein provided, shall be payable monthly in advance. The installment of Base Rent for the sixth (6th) month of the Term shall be payable contemporaneously with the execution and delivery of this Lease by Tenant; thereafter, Base Rent shall be payable on the first (1st) day of each month. If the Commencement Date does not occur on the first (1st) day of a calendar month, the Base Rent for the period from the Commencement Date to the last day of the month in which the Commencement Date occurs shall be included in the payment of Base Rent for the seventh (7th) month of the Term. The monthly Base Rent for any partial month at the beginning or end of the Term shall be prorated based on the actual number of days in the partial month and shall be payable in advance.
(b) Payment of Operating Costs. Tenant shall pay to Landlord (i) Tenants Proportionate Share of the annual Operating Costs (as defined below, excluding Real Property Taxes, as defined below) for the Project in excess of the Operating Costs (excluding Real Property Taxes) for the Project for the Expense Base Year, and (ii) Tenants Proportionate Share of the annual Real Property Taxes for the Project in excess of the Real Property Taxes for the Project for the Tax Base Year (collectively, Additional Rent). Landlord shall make a good faith estimate of the Additional Rent to be due by Tenant for any calendar year or part thereof during the Term following the Expense Base Year and the Tax Base Year, as the case may be. During each calendar year or partial calendar year of the Term following the Expense Base Year and the Tax Base Year, as the case may be, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, in advance, concurrently with each monthly installment of Base Rent, an amount equal to the estimated Additional Rent for such calendar year or part thereof divided by the number of months Tenant is in occupancy during said calendar year. From time to time, Landlord may estimate and re-estimate the Additional Rent to be due by Tenant and deliver a copy of the estimate or re-estimate to Tenant. Thereafter, the monthly installments of Additional Rent payable by Tenant shall be appropriately adjusted in accordance with the estimations so that, by the end of the calendar year in question, Tenant shall have paid all of the Additional Rent as estimated by Landlord. Any amounts paid based on such an estimate shall be subject to adjustment as herein provided when actual Operating Costs and Real Property Taxes are available for each calendar year. In addition, Landlord shall have the right, from time to time, to equitably allocate and prorate some or all of the Operating Costs among different tenants and/or different buildings of the Project and/or on a building-by-building basis (the Cost Pools), adjusting Tenants Proportionate Share as to each of the separately allocated costs based on the ratio of the Rentable Area of the Premises to the Rentable Area of all of the premises to which such costs are allocated. Such Cost Pools may include, without limitation, the office space tenants and retail space tenants of the Project.
(c) Definition of Operating Costs. The term Operating Costs shall mean all costs and disbursements that Landlord incurs in connection with the ownership, operation, maintenance, repair and replacement of the Project determined in accordance with sound accounting principles consistently applied, including premiums for property, liability and other coverages carried by Landlord, including deductibles and risk retention programs and an allocation of a portion of the cost of blanket insurance policies maintained by Landlord and/or its Affiliates; property management fees and expenses; service and maintenance contracts; salaries, wages, benefits and other payroll expenses of employees engaged in the operation, maintenance or repair of the Project; rent and expenses for Landlords and any property managers offices in the Project not to exceed the fair market rent for such spaces, with such spaces not to exceed the size of property managers office spaces for comparable projects; Real Property Taxes (as defined in Section 4(e) below); repair and maintenance costs; telecom expenses; license fees; the Buildings Systems maintenance, repair and replacement costs; utilities; repair and replacement, resurfacing or repaving of paved areas, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, life safety; security (if and to the extent Landlord elects to provide same); janitorial services and cleaning supplies; window cleaning and elevator maintenance and uniforms for personnel providing services; trash collection; pest control charges; materials, supplies; administrative costs; business license taxes and fees; tools and rental equipment; administrative costs; costs associated with operating a shuttle (if applicable and available to Tenant), cost of all utilities not directly metered to individual tenants (including water, sewer, electrical, gas, trash/recycling/compost) and the cost of janitorial services for the Common Areas and tenant premises and supplies used in connection therewith (including night service, day porter(s), cleaning/restroom supplies and interior window cleaning), and the costs for capital improvements (as determined pursuant to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), consistently applied) made to the Project (i) to comply with applicable Laws hereafter promulgated by any governmental authority or any interpretation hereafter rendered with respect to any existing Laws, (ii) to reduce operating expenses, or (iii) to improve the health, safety and welfare of the Project and its tenants, in each case amortized using a commercially reasonable interest rate over the useful life of the improvement as reasonably determined by Landlord pursuant to GAAP. Operating Costs shall not include costs for: (1) costs paid by proceeds of insurance, condemnation awards or by Tenant or other third parties; (2) interest, amortization or other payments on loans to Landlord; (3) leasing commissions; (4) advertising expenses; (5) legal expenses for services or in defense of Landlords title to the Project, other than those that benefit the Project tenants generally (e.g., tax disputes); (6) renovating or otherwise improving leased premises in the Project; (7) depreciation; (8) salaries of officers and executives of Landlord; (9) any costs included in Operating Costs representing an amount paid to a corporation related to Landlord which is in excess of the amount which would have been paid in the absence of such relationship; (10) interest and penalties due to late payment of amounts owed by Landlord (except in connection with settlement of a bona fide Real Property Tax appeal); (11) Landlords general corporate and overhead and costs related to the maintenance of Landlord as a legal entity; (12) federal or state income taxes imposed on or measured by the income of Landlord and inheritance and estate taxes; (13) ground lease rental; (14) expenses arising from the construction, sale or financing or the Building; (15) the cost of remediation of Hazardous Materials to the extent not arising from Tenants breach of any of its obligations under Section 24 hereof, provided that Operating Costs may include the incidental costs attributable to removing Hazardous Materials in the ordinary course of cleaning and maintaining the Project; (16) costs included in connection with services or other benefits which are provided to tenants or occupants other than Tenant, but not made available to Tenant; (17) reserves, including reserves for capital expenditures or improvements, bad debts, or rental losses; (18) costs directly resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its employees, officers, directors, contractors or agents; and (19) cost of capital improvements to comply with applicable Laws in existence and enforced as of the date of this Lease.
(d) Gross-Up. With respect to any calendar year or partial calendar year, including the Expense Base Year, in which the Building is not occupied to the extent of 95% of the Rentable Area thereof, or Landlord is not supplying services to 95% of the Rentable Area thereof, the Operating Costs for such period shall, for the purposes hereof, be increased to the amount which would have been incurred had the Building been occupied to the extent of 95% of the Rentable Area thereof and Landlord had been supplying services to 95% of the Rentable Area thereof.
(e) Definition of Real Property Taxes. The term Real Property Taxes shall mean all real property taxes, assessments, levies and impositions of any kind (whether general, special, ordinary or extraordinary) that are paid or incurred by Landlord for the Project (without regard to any different fiscal year used by any governmental or municipal authority) as well as transit impact fees levied by local authorities, charges, fees or assessments for transit, housing, day care, open space, art, police, fire, or other governmental services or benefits to the Project, the costs of consultants engaged to lower or dispute real property taxes and assessments, and personal property taxes imposed on the fixtures, equipment and other personal property of Landlord used in connection with the Project. Real Property Taxes shall not include federal or state income taxes imposed on or measured by the income of Landlord from the operation of the Project.
(f) Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to furnish to Tenant a statement of Operating Costs for the previous year (the Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement) within six (6) months after the expiration thereof. Landlords failure to deliver an Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement despite its commercially reasonable efforts to do so shall not be deemed a default by Landlord under this Lease nor shall the same limit Landlords right to exercise its rights (or excuse Tenant from performing its obligations) hereunder. If Tenants estimated payments of Operating Costs under this Section 4 for the year covered by the Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement exceed Tenants share of such items as indicated in the Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement, then Landlord shall promptly credit or reimburse Tenant for such excess; likewise, if Tenants estimated payments of Operating Costs under this Section 4 for such year are less than Tenants share of such items as indicated in the Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement, then Tenant shall promptly pay Landlord such deficiency within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement, notwithstanding that the Term has expired and Tenant has vacated the Premises. Landlord shall have the same remedies for a default in the payment of Operating Costs as for a default in the payment of Base Rent.
(g) Tenants Audit Right. Within sixty (60) days (the Audit Election Period) after Landlord furnishes to Tenant the Operating Costs Reconciliation Statement for any calendar year, Tenant may, at its expense during Landlords normal business hours, elect to audit Landlords Operating Costs for such calendar year only, subject to the following conditions: (1) no Event of Default has occurred under this Lease; (2) the audit shall be prepared by an independent certified public accounting firm of recognized national standing; (3) in no event shall any audit be performed by a firm retained on a contingency fee basis; (4) the audit shall commence within thirty (30) days after Landlord makes Landlords books and records available to Tenants auditor and shall conclude within sixty (60) days after commencement; (5) the audit shall be conducted where Landlord maintains its books and records and shall not interfere with the conduct of Landlords business; and (6) Tenant and its accounting firm shall treat any audit in a confidential manner and shall each execute Landlords commercially reasonable confidentiality agreement for Landlords benefit prior to commencing the audit. Tenant shall deliver a copy of such audit to Landlord within five (5) Business Days following the completion of such audit by Tenant. This
paragraph shall not be construed to limit, suspend or abate Tenants obligation to pay Rent when due, including estimated Operating Costs. After verification, Landlord shall credit any overpayment determined by the audit report against the next Rent due and owing by Tenant or, if no further Rent is due, refund such overpayment directly to Tenant within thirty (30) days of determination. Likewise, Tenant shall pay Landlord any underpayment determined by the audit report within thirty (30) days of determination. The foregoing obligations shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease. If Tenant does not give written notice of its election to audit during the Audit Election Period, Landlords Operating Costs for the applicable calendar year shall be deemed approved for all purposes, and Tenant shall have no further right to review or contest the same. If the audit proves that Landlords calculation of Operating Costs for the calendar year under inspection was overstated by more than seven and 50/100 percent (7.5%) in the aggregate, then, after verification, Landlord shall pay Tenants actual reasonable out-of-pocket audit and inspection fees applicable to the review of said calendar year statement (not to exceed $3,500 per audit) within thirty (30) days after receipt of Tenants invoice therefor.
5. Delinquent Payment; Handling Charges. All past due payments (other than late charges) required of Tenant hereunder shall bear interest from the date due until paid at the lesser of twelve percent (12%) per annum or the maximum lawful rate of interest (such lesser amount is referred to herein as the Default Rate); additionally, Landlord, in addition to all other rights and remedies available to it, may charge Tenant a fee equal to five percent (5%) of the overdue amount plus an additional $350.00 to reimburse Landlord for its cost and inconvenience incurred as a consequence of Tenants delinquency. Any such late charge and interest payment shall constitute additional Rent under this Lease, shall not be considered a waiver by Landlord of any default by Tenant hereunder, and shall be payable immediately on demand. In no event, however, shall the charges permitted under this Section 5 or elsewhere in this Lease, to the extent they are considered to be interest under applicable Law, exceed the maximum lawful rate of interest. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the late fee and the interest referenced above shall not be charged with respect to the first occurrence (but may be charged with respect to any subsequent occurrence) during any twelve (12) month period that Tenant fails to make payment when due, until five (5) days after Landlord delivers written notice of such delinquency to Tenant.
6. Security Deposit; Letter of Credit.
(a) Security Deposit. Tenant shall pay to Landlord a security deposit in the form of a Letter of Credit (in accordance with the terms of Section 6(b) below), which shall be held by Landlord throughout the Term to secure Tenants performance of its obligations under this Lease. Any amount drawn on the Letter of Credit (each, a Drawn Amount) is not an advance payment of Rent or a measure or limit of Landlords damages upon an Event of Default. Landlord may, at Landlords discretion, from time to time following an Event of Default and without prejudice to any other remedy, use all or a part of any Drawn Amount to perform any obligation Tenant fails to perform hereunder or in connection with Landlords remedies under this Lease. Subject to the requirements of, and conditions imposed by, Laws applicable to security deposits under commercial leases, Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days following the end of the Term, return to Tenant the portion of any Drawn Amount remaining after deducting all damages, charges and other amounts permitted by Law. Landlord and Tenant agree that such deductions shall include all damages and losses that Landlord has suffered or that Landlord reasonably estimates that it will suffer as a result of any breach of this Lease by Tenant. Tenant hereby waives the protections of Section 1950.7(c) of the California Civil Code, as it may hereafter be amended, or similar laws of like import. Unless required otherwise by applicable Law, any Drawn Amount may be commingled with other funds, and no interest shall be paid thereon.
(b) Letter of Credit. The form of the security deposit under this Lease shall be an Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit (the Letter of Credit) which shall (1) be addressed to Landlord, (2) be in a form reasonably acceptable to Landlord, (3) be issued by a federally insured financial institution which is acceptable to Landlord in Landlords sole discretion, with minimum assets of Ten Billion Dollars ($10,000,000,000.00) (the Minimum Assets), upon which presentment may be made in the City of San Francisco, California, (4) be in an amount equal to $215,633.65 (the Minimum Amount), (5) allow for partial and multiple draws thereunder, and (6) have an expiration date not earlier than sixty (60) days after the scheduled Term expiration date (as the same may be extended) or in the alternative, have a term of not less than one (1) year and be automatically renewable for additional one (1) year periods unless, on or before the date sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the term of such Letter of Credit, the issuer of such Letter of Credit gives notice to Landlord of its election not to renew such Letter of Credit for any additional period pursuant thereto. In addition, the Letter of Credit shall provide that, in the event of Landlords assignment of its interest in this Lease, the Letter of Credit shall be freely transferable by Landlord to the assignee without charge to Landlord or approval of the issuer. The Letter of Credit shall provide for same day payment to Landlord upon the issuers receipt of a sight draft from Landlord together with Landlords certificate certifying that the requested sum is due and payable from Tenant and Tenant has failed to pay, and with no other conditions.
(i) Tenant shall, on or before the date which is sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the Letter of Credit, deliver to Landlord a new Letter of Credit satisfying the foregoing requirements in lieu of the Letter of Credit then being held by Landlord. If the issuer of such existing or new Letter of Credit provides notice of its election to not renew such Letter of Credit for any additional period, Tenant shall be required to deliver a new Letter of Credit on or before the date which is sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the term of the Letter of Credit then being held by Landlord. If neither a new Letter of Credit nor a renewal of the Letter of Credit is timely delivered to Landlord, then Landlord may (without prejudicing any other right or remedy available to Landlord) draw down the entire Letter of Credit and, until Tenant delivers to Landlord the new Letter of Credit as required by this paragraph, hold the drawn cash in accordance with the terms of Section 6(a) above.
(ii) The Letter of Credit shall be replaced by a new Letter of Credit if the issuing financial institution: (a) has assets which fall below the Minimum Assets; (b) enters into any form of regulatory or governmental proceeding, including without limitation any receivership instituted or commenced by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the FDIC); (c) is otherwise declared insolvent, is downgraded by the FDIC, is determined to be less than well capitalized by the appropriate Federal banking agency under the prompt corrective action rules of the FDIC, or closes for any reason; (d) is removed from Landlords list of approved financial institutions, in Landlords sole discretion; or (e) in any manner communicates (including without limitation communications sent by or on behalf of the FDIC) its unwillingness to honor the terms of the Letter of Credit. If Tenant fails to deliver to Landlord the replacement Letter of Credit within ten (10) Business Days following Landlords written demand for same, Landlord shall be entitled to draw down the entire Letter of Credit and, until Tenant delivers to Landlord the replacement Letter of Credit as required by this paragraph, hold the drawn cash in accordance with the terms of Section 6(b) above.
(iii) In the event that Tenant is in default under the terms and provisions of the Lease, then Landlord shall have the right, at any time after such event, without giving any further notice to Tenant: (1) to make a partial draw upon said Letter of Credit (and/or Additional Letter of Credit, as defined below, as the case may be) (a) in an amount necessary to cure such
default or (b) if such default cannot reasonably be cured by the expenditure of money, and Landlord exercises any rights and remedies Landlord may have on account of such default, in an amount which, in Landlords opinion, is necessary to satisfy Tenants liability on account thereof; or (2) to draw down the entire amount of such Letter of Credit (and/or Additional Letter of Credit) at such time; and any such amounts received by Landlord shall be held by Landlord (and need not be segregated or accrue interest unless otherwise required by Law) and applied in accordance with this Lease.
(iv) Following a draw by Landlord on the Letter of Credit, at Landlords election the Letter of Credit shall: (a) be replaced by Tenant within ten (10) Business Days after written notice from Landlord by a new Letter of Credit in the Minimum Amount, in which event the Letter of Credit then held by Landlord shall be terminated; or (b) be augmented by Tenant within five (5) Business Days after written notice from Landlord by an additional Letter of Credit in the amount of a partial draw (the Additional Letter of Credit) subject to the requirements set forth above, in which event the Letter of Credit then held by Landlord and the Additional Letter of Credit shall both be held by Landlord.
(v) In addition, in the event of a termination based upon the default of Tenant under the Lease, or a rejection of the Lease pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Bankruptcy Code, Landlord shall have the right to draw upon the Letter of Credit and/or the Additional Letter of Credit (from time to time, if necessary) to cover the full amount of damages and other amounts due from Tenant to Landlord under the Lease. Any amounts so drawn shall, at Landlords election, be applied first to any unpaid rent and other charges which were due prior to the filing of the petition for protection under the Federal Bankruptcy Code. Any such draw on the Letter of Credit shall not constitute a waiver of any other rights of Landlord with respect to Tenants default under the Lease. Tenant hereby covenants and agrees not to oppose, contest or otherwise interfere with any attempt by Landlord to draw upon said Letter of Credit (and/or Additional Letter of Credit) including, without limitation, by commencing an action seeking to enjoin or restrain Landlord from making such draw. Tenant also hereby expressly waives any right or claim it may have to seek such equitable relief. In addition to whatever other rights and remedies Landlord may have against Tenant if Tenant breaches its obligations under this paragraph, Tenant hereby acknowledges that it shall be liable for any and all damages which Landlord may suffer as a result of any such breach (including without limitation recovery of Landlords reasonable attorneys fees and court costs).
(vi) Without limiting the import of the preceding paragraphs, Tenant agrees that in the event that Tenant fails timely to deliver to Landlord a replacement letter of credit when required hereunder, then Landlord shall have the right, at any time after such event, without giving any further notice to Tenant, to draw down the entire Letter of Credit (and/or Additional Letter(s) of Credit) and to hold the proceeds thereof in accordance with the terms of Section 6(a) above.
(vii) Upon request of Landlord or any (prospective) purchaser or mortgagee of the Building, Tenant shall, at its expense, cooperate with Landlord in obtaining an amendment to or replacement of any Letter of Credit which Landlord is then holding so that the amended or new Letter of Credit reflects the name of the new owner and/or mortgagee of the Building.
(viii) To the extent that Landlord has not previously drawn upon any Letter of Credit or Additional Letter of Credit held by Landlord, and to the extent that Tenant is not otherwise in default of its obligations under the Lease as of the expiration date of the Lease, Landlord shall return such Letter(s) of Credit to Tenant promptly following the expiration of the Term of the Lease.
(ix) In no event shall the proceeds of any Letter of Credit be deemed to be a prepayment of rent nor shall it be considered as a measure of liquidated damages.
(x) For the avoidance of doubt, Landlord and Tenant (a) agree that the Letter of Credit shall in no event be deemed or treated as a security deposit under any Law applicable to security deposits in the commercial context, (b) further acknowledge and agree that the Letter of Credit is not intended to serve as a security deposit and the Laws applicable to security deposits shall have no applicability or relevancy thereto, and (c) waive any and all rights, duties and obligations either party may now have or, in the future will have, relating to or arising from the Laws applicable to security deposits.
(xi) Tenant unconditionally and irrevocably waives (and as an independent covenant hereunder, covenants not to assert) any right to claim or obtain in connection with the Letter of Credit a temporary restraining order, temporary injunction, permanent injunction, or other order that would prevent, restrain or restrict the presentment of sight drafts drawn under any Letter of Credit or the issuing banks honoring or payment of sight draft(s). Tenants sole remedy in connection with the improper presentment or payment of sight drafts drawn under any Letter of Credit shall be the right to obtain from Landlord a refund of the amount of any sight draft(s) that were improperly presented or the proceeds of which were misapplied, together with interest at the Default Rate and reasonable actual out-of-pocket attorneys fees. Tenant acknowledges that the presentment of sight drafts drawn under any Letter of Credit, or the issuing banks payment of sight drafts drawn under such Letter of Credit, could not under any circumstances cause Tenant injury that could not be remedied by an award of money damages, and that the recovery of money damages would be an adequate remedy therefor.
(c) Reduction in Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, provided that (1) no Event of Default has occurred or is occurring, (2) Tenant receives a minimum of $50,000,000 in additional funding through a Series C funding and/or an initial public offering, and (3) Tenant can demonstrate that its cash flow projections are and will be positive throughout the remainder of the Term, then Tenant shall be permitted to reduce the amount of the Letter of Credit on a one-time basis by $86,253.46 so that the amount of the Letter of Credit remaining after such reduction is $129,380.19. Subject to satisfaction of the foregoing conditions, the amount of the Letter of Credit may be reduced by Tenants delivery of written notice to Landlord requesting such reduction. Upon Landlords receipt of such notice and confirmation of Tenants satisfaction of the foregoing conditions, Tenant shall, at Landlords request, promptly deliver to Landlord a replacement Letter of Credit which is in the amount of the reduced amount, and which in all other respects is in conformance with the Letter of Credit requirements described in Section 6(b) above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall any such reduction be construed as an admission by Landlord that Tenant has performed all of its covenants and obligations hereunder or a waiver of any claims against Tenant. Moreover, if an Event of Default occurs at any time after the occurrence of such reduction, then Tenant shall be required, within five (5) Business Days following Landlords notice, to restore the Letter of Credit to the Minimum Amount. The foregoing reduction shall be personal to the named Tenant.
7. Services and Utilities; Common Areas.
(a) Services and Utilities. Landlord shall use all reasonable efforts to furnish or cause to be furnished to the Premises the utilities and services described in the Standards for Services and Utilities, attached hereto as Exhibit B, subject to the conditions and in accordance with the standards set forth therein. Landlords obligation to furnish services pursuant to Exhibit B shall be subject to the rules and regulations of the supplier of such services and governmental rules and regulations. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to restore any service required of it that becomes unavailable; however, such unavailability shall not render Landlord liable for any damages caused thereby, be a constructive eviction of Tenant, constitute a breach of any implied warranty, or entitle Tenant to any abatement of Tenants obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if: (i) any such utility service is interrupted because of the grossly negligent acts of Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors; (ii) Tenant notifies Landlord of such interruption in writing (the Interruption Notice); (iii) such interruption does not arise in whole or in part as a result of an act or omission of a Tenant Party; (iv) such interruption is not caused by a fire or other Casualty; (v) the repair or restoration of such service is reasonably within the control of Landlord; and (vi) as a result of such interruption, the Premises or a material portion thereof, is rendered untenantable (meaning that Tenant is unable to use the Premises in the normal course of it business) and Tenant in fact ceases to use the Premises, or material portion thereof, then, Tenants sole remedy for such interruption shall be as follows: on the tenth (10th) consecutive Business Day following the latest to occur of the date the Premises (or material portion thereof) becomes untenantable, the date Tenant ceases to use such space and the date Tenant provides Landlord with an Interruption Notice, the Rent payable hereunder shall be abated on a per diem basis for each day after such ten (10) Business Day period based upon the percentage of the Premises so rendered untenantable and not used by Tenant, and such abatement shall continue until the date the Premises become tenantable again.
(b) Common Areas. The term Common Area is defined for all purposes of this Lease as those parts of the Project intended for the common use of all tenants, including the ground floor lobby, elevator lobbies, elevators, stairwells, hallways, the Parking Garage, including sidewalks, restrooms, communal conference room, electrical and telephone rooms, mailroom, bike storage, and the like, but excluding space in the Building designated for rental for commercial purposes. In addition, although the roofs of the Project are not literally part of the Common Area, they will be deemed to be so included for purposes of: (i) Landlords ability to prescribe rules and regulations regarding same and (ii) their inclusion for purposes of Operating Costs reimbursements. Landlord reserves the right to change from time to time the dimensions and location of the Common Area, as well as the dimensions, identities, locations and types of any signs or other improvements in the Project. Tenant and its employees and invitees, and when duly authorized pursuant to the provisions of this Lease, its subtenants, licensees and concessionaires, shall have the non-exclusive right to use the Common Area (excluding the roofs) as constituted from time to time, such use to be in common with Landlord, other tenants in the Project and other persons permitted by Landlord to use the same, and subject to the rights of governmental authorities, easements, other restrictions of record, and such reasonable rules and regulations governing use as Landlord may from time to time prescribe. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Landlord may temporarily close any part of the Common Area for such periods of time as may be necessary to make repairs or alterations or to prevent the public from obtaining prescriptive rights.
(c) Trash and Recycling and Waste Management. Tenant shall store all trash and garbage within the Premises. Landlord shall arrange for the regular pick-up of such trash and garbage, and Tenant shall be charged an equitable portion of the total of the charges to all tenants using the service. Receiving and delivery of goods and merchandise and removal of garbage and trash shall be made only in the manner and areas prescribed by Landlord. Tenant shall not operate an incinerator or burn trash or garbage within the Project. Tenant covenants and agrees, at its sole cost and expense: (i) to comply with all present and future Laws, orders and regulations of the federal, state, county, municipal or other governing authorities, departments, commissions, agencies and boards regarding the collection, sorting, separation, and recycling of garbage, trash, rubbish and other refuse (collectively, trash); (ii) to comply with Landlords recycling policy for the Project as part of Landlords energy efficient and environmentally sustainable practices (Landlords Sustainability Initiative) where it may be more stringent than applicable Law; (iii) to sort and separate its trash and recycling into such categories as are provided by Law or Landlords Sustainability Initiative; (iv) that each separately sorted category of trash and recycling shall be placed in separate receptacles as directed by Landlord; (v) that Landlord reserves the right to require Tenant to arrange for such collection utilizing a contractor reasonably satisfactory to Landlord; and (vi) that Tenant shall pay all costs, expenses, fines, penalties or damages that may be imposed on Landlord or Tenant by reason of Tenants failure to comply with the provisions of this Section. Tenant shall provide Landlord as reasonably requested with a copy of waste manifests for all waste that leaves the Building that is within Tenants direct control, including consumable waste, recyclable waste, pallets, off-site paper shredding and electronic waste.
(d) On-site Power. Landlord shall have the right to install on-site power (i.e., solar or small wind) at the Building or the Project. Tenant agrees to reasonably cooperate with Landlord in connection with the installation and on-going operation of such on-site power. Tenant shall have no right to any renewable energy credits resulting from on-site renewable energy generation, even if Tenant uses such energy. Landlord may retain or assign such renewable energy credits in Landlords sole discretion.
(e) Consumption Data. Tenant shall within ten (10) days of written request by Landlord, provide consumption data in form reasonably required by Landlord: (ix) for any utility billed directly to Tenant and any subtenant or licensee; and (y) for any submetered or separately metered utility supplied to the Premises for any above-Building standard equipment and for which Landlord is not responsible for reading. If Tenant utilizes separate services from those of Landlord, Tenant hereby consents to Landlord obtaining the information directly from such service providers and, upon ten (10) days prior written request, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord and the service providers such written releases as the service providers may request evidencing Tenants consent to deliver the data to Landlord. Any information provided hereunder shall be held confidential except for its limited use to evidence compliance with any sustainability standards. If Tenant fails to deliver any release or to provide any information requested hereunder within the ten (10)-day period, then Landlord may charge Tenant the sum of $100.00 per day for each day after the ten (10) day period until delivered (the Late Reporting Fee), in addition to any other rights or remedies afforded to Landlord for an Event of Default pursuant to Section 17 of this Lease. A Tenant Party shall not use, nor allow any of its parent, subsidiary or affiliated entities or architects, engineers, or other consultants or advisors to use, any of such consumption data or other information to challenge any sustainability score, rating, certification or other approval granted by any third party.
(f) Benchmarkinq. When energy and/or water benchmarking are required by local, state or federal codes, Tenant shall reasonably cooperate with Landlord to comply with such Laws. If Tenant fails to cooperate within ten (10) days of written request, Landlord may charge Tenant the Late Reporting Fee for each day after such ten (10)-day period that Tenant fails to so cooperate, in addition to any other rights or remedies afforded to Landlord for an Event of Default
pursuant to Section 17 of this Lease. If the results of such benchmarking reveal an energy or water performance score that requires audit and/or commissioning studies to be performed, Tenant shall cooperate fully and promptly reimburse Landlord for the reasonable cost of such audits and/or commissioning. Furthermore, if the results of such audits and commissioning reveal opportunities to improve efficiencies through Tenant operations, Tenant shall make every reasonable effort to take such corrective measures.
(g) Data Center. Tenant may not operate a Data Center within the Premises without the express written consent of Landlord. The term Data Center shall have the meaning set forth in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys ENERGY STAR® program and is a space specifically designed and equipped to meet the needs of high-density computing equipment, such as server racks, used for data storage and processing. The space will have dedicated, uninterruptible power supplies and cooling systems. Data Center functions may include traditional enterprise services, on-demand enterprise services, high-performance computing, internet facilities and/or hosting facilities. A Data Center does not include space within the Premises utilized as a server closet or for a computer training area. In conjunction with the completion and operation of the Data Center, Tenant shall furnish the following information to Landlord:
(i) Within ten (10) days of completion, Tenant shall report to Landlord the total Rentable Area (in square feet) of the Data Center measured between the principal exterior surfaces of the enclosing fixed walls and including all supporting functions dedicated for use in the Data Center, such as any raised-floor computing space, server rack aisles, storage silos, control console areas, battery rooms, mechanical rooms for cooling equipment, administrative office areas, elevator shafts, stairways, break rooms and restrooms. If Tenant alters or modifies the area of the Data Center, Tenant shall furnish an updated report to Landlord on the square footage within ten (10) days following completion of the alterations or modifications.

8. Alterations; Repairs; Maintenance; Signs.
(a) Alterations. Tenant shall not make any alterations, additions or improvements to the Premises (collectively, the Alterations) without the prior written consent of Landlord (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), except for (a) the installation of unattached, movable trade fixtures which may be installed without drilling, cutting or otherwise defacing the Premises and (b) Alterations that are cosmetic in nature and do not affect the Buildings Structure or any Buildings System, do not require permits, and are anticipated to cost less than $25,000 (Permitted Alterations). Tenant shall furnish complete plans and specifications to Landlord for its approval at the time Tenant requests Landlords consent to any Alterations. Subsequent to obtaining Landlords consent and prior to commencement of the Alterations, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord any building permit required by applicable Law and a copy of the executed construction contract(s). Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord at least ten (10) Business Days prior to beginning any construction, and Landlord may post on and about the Premises or the Project notices of non-responsibility pursuant to applicable Laws. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord within thirty (30) days after the rendition of a bill for all of Landlords actual out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection with any Alterations, including all management, engineering, outside consulting and construction fees incurred by or on behalf of
Landlord for the review and approval of Tenants plans and specifications and for the monitoring of construction of the Alterations not to exceed three percent (3%) of the hard costs of such Alterations. If Landlord consents to the making of any Alteration, such Alteration shall be made by Tenant at Tenants sole cost and expense by a contractor reasonably approved in writing by Landlord. Without Landlords prior written consent, Tenant shall not use any portion of the Common Areas in connection with the making of any Alterations. If the Alterations which Tenant causes to be constructed result in Landlord being required to make any alterations and/or improvements to other portions of the Project in order to comply with any applicable Laws, then Tenant shall reimburse Landlord upon demand for all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in making such alterations and/or improvements. Any Alterations made by Tenant shall become the property of Landlord upon installation and shall remain on and be surrendered with the Premises upon the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease, unless Landlord requires the removal of such Alterations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon Tenants written request at the time it seeks Landlords consent to an Alteration, Landlord agrees to indicate in writing whether it will require such Alteration to be removed upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease. If Landlord requires the removal of such Alterations, Tenant shall at its sole cost and expense, prior to the Expiration Date or the last day of the Renewal Term (as defined in Exhibit G), as the case may be, or earlier termination of this Lease, remove all or any portion of any Alterations made by Tenant which are designated by Landlord to be removed and repair and restore the Premises in a good and workmanlike manner to their original condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted (collectively, the Removal and Restoration Work); provided, however, at Landlords election, in lieu of having Tenant perform the Removal and Restoration Work, Tenant shall pay Landlord, within five (5) days following Landlords demand, an amount equal to the actual out-of-pocket cost of performing the Removal and Restoration Work, and Landlord shall have the right (but not the obligation) to perform such work on Tenants behalf. All construction work done by Tenant within the Premises shall be performed in accordance with all Laws, in a good and workmanlike manner with new materials of first-class quality, lien-free, and in such manner as to cause a minimum of interference with the transaction of business at the Project. All work which may affect the Buildings Structure or the Buildings Systems, at Landlords election, must be performed by Landlords usual contractor for such work. All work affecting the roof of the Project must be performed by Landlords roofing contractor and no such work will be permitted if it would void or reduce the warranty on the roof. In all events, Tenant shall be required to use union labor in connection with any initial improvements and all Alterations. Tenant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Landlord, its Affiliates, Harvest Properties, Inc. (Harvest), Cerberus Real Estate Capital Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (Cerberus), and Landlords Property Manager, and their respective officers, directors, partners, members, shareholders, employees and agents (collectively, the Indemnitees) harmless against any loss, liability or damage resulting from such work performed by or at the request of Tenant (except for the Work), and Tenant shall, if requested by Landlord, furnish a bond or other security satisfactory to Landlord against any such loss, liability or damage. The foregoing indemnity shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. Landlords consent to or approval of any Alterations (or the plans therefor) shall not constitute a representation or warranty by Landlord, nor Landlords acceptance, that the same comply with sound architectural and/or engineering practices or with all applicable Laws, and Tenant shall be solely responsible for ensuring all such compliance. All voice, data, video, audio and other low voltage control transport system cabling and/or cable bundles installed in the Building by Tenant or its contractor shall be (i) plenum rated and/or have a composition make-up suited for its environmental use in accordance with NFPA 70/National Electrical Code; (ii) labeled every 3 meters with Tenants name and origination and destination points; (iii) installed in accordance with all EIA/TIA standards and the National Electric Code; and (iv) installed and routed in accordance with a routing plan showing as built or as installed configurations of cable pathways, outlet identification numbers, locations of all wall, ceiling and floor penetrations, riser cable routing and conduit routing (if applicable), and such other information as Landlord may reasonably request. The routing plan shall be available to Landlord and its agents at the Project upon request.
(b) Repairs; Maintenance.
(i) By Landlord. Landlord shall, subject to reimbursement to the extent set forth in Section 4, keep and maintain in good repair and working order and make repairs to and perform maintenance upon: (1) the Buildings Structure; (2) Building standard mechanical (including HVAC), electrical, heating, plumbing and fire/life safety systems serving the Project generally; (3) Common Areas; (4) the roof of the Building; (5) exterior windows of the Project; and (6) elevators serving the Building. Landlord shall not be liable for any failure to make any such repairs or to perform any maintenance unless such failure shall persist for an unreasonable time after written notice of the need for such repairs or maintenance is given to Landlord by Tenant. If any of the foregoing maintenance or repair is necessitated due to the acts or omissions of any Tenant Party, Tenant shall pay the costs of such repairs or maintenance to Landlord within thirty (30) days after receipt of an invoice, together with an administrative charge in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the cost of the repairs. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any interruption of Tenants business or inconvenience caused due to any work performed in the Premises or in the Project pursuant to Landlords rights and obligations under the Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenants business operations and access to the Premises in making such repairs. To the extent allowed by law, Tenant waives the right to make repairs at Landlords expense under Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code, and the right to terminate the Lease under Section 1932(1) of the California Civil Code, and any other laws, statutes or ordinances now or hereafter in effect of like import. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if: (i) the Premises or a material portion thereof, is rendered untenantable (meaning that Tenant is unable to use the Premises in the normal course of it business) because of the grossly negligent performance of any repair or maintenance work by Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors, or grossly negligent failure to perform any repair or maintenance work that Landlord is responsible for performing pursuant to this Lease; (ii) Tenant provides an Interruption Notice with respect thereto; (iii) such condition does not arise in whole or in part as a result of an act or omission of a Tenant Party; (iv) such condition is not caused by a fire or other Casualty; and (v) the cause of such condition is reasonably within the control of Landlord, then, Tenants sole remedy therefor shall be as follows: on the tenth (10th) consecutive Business Day following the latest to occur of the date the Premises (or material portion thereof) becomes untenantable, the date Tenant ceases to use such space and the date Tenant provides Landlord with an Interruption Notice, the Rent payable hereunder shall be abated on a per diem basis for each day after such ten (10) Business Day period based upon the percentage of the Premises so rendered untenantable and not used by Tenant, and such abatement shall continue until the date the Premises become tenantable again.
(ii) By Tenant. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, promptly perform all maintenance and repairs to the Premises that are not Landlords express responsibility under this Lease, and shall keep the Premises in good condition and repair, ordinary wear and tear and Casualty excepted. Tenants repair obligations include repairs to: (1) floor coverings and/or raised flooring; (2) interior partitions; (3) doors; (4) the interior side of demising walls; (5) electronic, phone and data cabling and related equipment that is installed by or for the benefit of Tenant and located in the Premises or other portions of the Building; (6) air conditioning units serving Tenant exclusively (if applicable); (7) any kitchen equipment or similar facilities serving Tenant exclusively (if applicable); (8) phone rooms used exclusively by Tenant; (9) Alterations
performed by contractors retained by or on behalf of Tenant, including related HVAC balancing; and (10) all of Tenants furnishings, trade fixtures, equipment and personal property. If Tenant fails to commence any such needed repairs within five (5) days of Landlords written request, Landlord reserves the right to perform any of the foregoing maintenance or repair obligations (other than with respect to subsection (10)) or require that such obligations be performed by a contractor reasonably approved by Landlord, all at Tenants expense. All work shall be performed in accordance with the rules and procedures described in Section 8(a), except that any repairs in the ordinary course constituting Permitted Alterations shall not require prior notice to Landlord or Landlords prior consent thereto. If Tenant fails to make any repairs to the Premises for more than fifteen (15) days after notice from Landlord (although notice shall not be required if there is an emergency, or if the area to be repaired is visible from the exterior of the Project), Landlord may, in addition to any other remedy available to Landlord, make the repairs, and Tenant shall pay the reasonable cost of the repairs to Landlord within thirty (30) days after receipt of an invoice, together with an administrative charge in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the cost of the repairs. At the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease, Tenant shall surrender the Premises in good condition, excepting reasonable wear and tear and losses required to be restored by Landlord. All personal property of Tenant, including goods, wares, merchandise, inventory, trade fixtures and other personal property of Tenant, shall be stored at the sole risk of Tenant. Except to the extent caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its agents, Landlord or its agents shall not be liable under any circumstances for any loss or damage to persons or property resulting from fire, explosion, falling plaster, steam, gas, electricity, water or rain which may leak from any part of the Project or from the pipes, appliances or plumbing works therein or from the roof, street, sidewalks or subsurface or from any other places resulting from dampness or any other cause whatsoever, or from the act or negligence of any other tenant or any officer, agent, employee, contractor or invitee of any such tenant, it being understood that Tenants sole recourse in the event of any such loss, injury or damage will be to file a claim on the insurance policies that Tenant is required to maintain pursuant to Section 11(a). It is generally understood that mold spores are present essentially everywhere and that mold can grow in most any moist location. Emphasis is properly placed on prevention of moisture and on good housekeeping, ventilation and moisture control practices. Tenant shall promptly report any maintenance problems involving water, moist conditions or mold to the property manager for the Project (the Property Manager), and shall conduct its activities in the Building in a manner that prevents unusual moisture conditions or mold growth. In signing this Lease, Tenant has first inspected the Premises and certifies that it has not observed mold, mildew or moisture within the Premises. Tenant relieves Landlord from any liability for any bodily injury or damages to property caused by or associated with moisture or the growth of or occurrence of mold or mildew on the Premises.
(iii) Performance of Work. All work described in this Section 8 undertaken by Tenant shall be performed only by contractors and subcontractors approved in writing by Landlord and shall be subject to the terms of this Section 8(b)(iii). Tenant shall cause all contractors and subcontractors to procure and maintain insurance coverage against such risks, in such amounts, and with such companies as Landlord may reasonably require, but in no event less than: (i) Commercial General Liability insurance on an occurrence basis in amounts not less than $2,000,000 ($1,000,000 of which may be in excess umbrella coverage) naming Landlord, Harvest, Cerberus, and the Property Manager as additional insureds for ongoing and completed operations using ISO Forms CG 2010 04/13 and CG 2037 04/13 (or other equivalent forms approved in writing by Landlord); (ii) workers compensation insurance in amounts required by statute and employers liability coverage with limits of not less than $500,000 each accident for bodily injury by accident, $500,000 each employee for bodily injury by disease, and $500,000 policy limit for bodily injury by disease; (iii) Business Automobile Liability insurance on an
occurrence basis in amounts not less than $1,000,000 naming Landlord, Harvest, Cerberus, and the Property Manager as additional insureds; and (iv) Umbrella/Excess Liability with limits of not less than $5,000,000 per occurrence in excess of (i-iii) above for trades such as escalator/elevator maintenance, signage, plumbing, electrical and window washing. Coverage shall be written as follow form or alternately with a form that provides coverage that is at least as broad as the primary policies. Each policy shall include a waiver of subrogation in favor of Landlord, the Property Manager and Cerberus. Tenant shall provide Landlord with insurance certificates for such contractors and subcontractors prior to commencement of any work. Tenant shall provide Landlord with the identities, mailing addresses and telephone numbers of all persons performing work or supplying materials prior to beginning such construction and Landlord may post on and about the Premises notices of non-responsibility pursuant to applicable Laws. All such work shall be performed in accordance with all Laws and in a good and workmanlike manner so as not to damage the Building (including the Premises, the Buildings Structure and the Buildings Systems). All such work which may affect the Buildings Structure or the Buildings Systems, at Landlords election, must be performed by Landlords usual contractor for such work or a contractor approved by Landlord. All work affecting the roof of the Building must be performed by Landlords roofing contractor or a contractor approved by Landlord and no such work will be permitted if it would void or reduce the warranty on the roof. Any and all Alterations performed by Tenant will be performed in accordance with Landlords Contractor Rules and Regulations attached hereto as Exhibit C-1 and the Energy and Sustainability Construction Guidelines and Requirements attached hereto as Exhibit C-2, and any modifications thereto by Landlord, notwithstanding any more permissive local building codes or ordinances.
(c) Mechanics Liens. All work performed, materials furnished, or obligations incurred by or at the request of a Tenant Party (other than the Work) shall be deemed authorized and ordered by Tenant only, and Tenant shall not permit any mechanics liens to be filed against the Premises or the Project in connection therewith. Upon completion of any such work, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord final lien waivers from all contractors, subcontractors and materialmen who performed such work. If such a lien is filed, then Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after Landlord has delivered notice of the filing thereof to Tenant, either: (1) pay the amount of the lien and cause the lien to be released of record; or (2) diligently contest such lien and deliver to Landlord a bond or other security reasonably satisfactory to Landlord. If Tenant fails to timely take either such action, then Landlord may pay the lien claim, and any amounts so paid, including expenses and interest, shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord within thirty (30) days after Landlord has invoiced Tenant therefor. Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Indemnitees from and against all claims, demands, causes of action, suits, judgments, damages and expenses (including attorneys fees) in any way arising from or relating to the failure by any Tenant Party to pay for any work performed, materials furnished, or obligations incurred by or at the request of a Tenant Party (other than the Work). The foregoing indemnity shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
(d) Signs. Tenant shall not place or permit to be placed any signs, placards, pictures, advertisements or notices upon the Common Areas or any area visible from the exterior of the Premises without Landlords prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall be permitted to install its name in the Building lobby directory and Building standard signage on the main entry door of the Premises, and such signage shall be provided and installed by Landlord on or about the Commencement Date at Landlords cost. Upon request of Landlord, Tenant shall immediately remove any sign, advertising material or lettering which Tenant has placed or permitted to be placed upon the exterior or interior surface of any door or window or at any point inside the Premises, which in Landlords reasonable opinion, is of such a nature as to not be in keeping with the standards of the Building, and if Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may without liability remove the same at Tenants expense.
9. Use. Tenant shall use the Premises only for the Permitted Use and shall comply with all Laws relating to the use, condition, access to, and occupancy of the Premises and will not commit waste, overload the Buildings Structure or the Buildings Systems or subject the Premises to any use that would damage the Premises. Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall obtain and keep in effect during the Term, all permits and licenses necessary to permit Tenant to use and occupy the Premises for the Permitted Use in accordance with applicable Law. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, as between Landlord and Tenant, Tenant shall bear the risk of complying with Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, any state laws governing handicapped access or architectural barriers, and all rules, regulations and guidelines promulgated under such laws, as amended from time to time (the Disabilities Acts) in the Premises. Further, Landlord shall be responsible for compliance with Disabilities Acts in the Common Area and with respect to the path of travel to the Premises, unless any non-compliance is caused by or attributable to (a) any Alterations performed by or at Tenants request (other than the Work), or (b) Tenants specific use of the Premises (as opposed to general office use). If Tenants initial use of the Premises is not a place of public accommodation within the meaning of the Disabilities Acts, then Tenant may not thereafter change the use to cause the Premises to become a place of public accommodation. In addition, the Premises shall not be used for any purpose which creates strong or offensive odors, fumes, dust or vapors; which emits noise or sounds that are objectionable due to intermittence, beat, frequency, shrillness or loudness; or which is associated with indecent or pornographic matters. Tenant shall conduct its business and control each other Tenant Party so as not to create any nuisance or unreasonably interfere with other tenants or Landlord in its management of the Project. Tenant shall not knowingly conduct or permit to be conducted in the Premises any activity, or place any equipment in or about the Premises or the Project, which will invalidate the insurance coverage in effect or increase the rate of fire insurance or other insurance on the Premises or the Project. If any invalidation of coverage or increase in the rate of fire insurance or other insurance occurs or is threatened by any insurance company due to activity conducted from the Premises, such statement or threat shall be conclusive evidence that the increase in such rate is due to such activity of Tenant and, as a result thereof, Tenant shall be liable for the payment of such increase as additional Rent. In no event shall Tenant introduce or permit to be kept on the Premises or brought into the Project any dangerous, noxious, radioactive or explosive substance. Tenant agrees to comply with and cooperate with Landlords efforts to comply with energy efficiency, green building and/or carbon reduction laws, including occupant, water, energy and transportation surveys within the city, county, state or any other jurisdiction.
10. Assignment and Subletting.
(a) Transfers. Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, (1) assign, transfer or encumber this Lease or any estate or interest herein, whether directly or by operation of law; (2) permit any other entity to become Tenant hereunder by merger, consolidation or other reorganization; (3) if Tenant is an entity other than a corporation whose stock is publicly traded, permit the transfer of an ownership interest in Tenant so as to result in a change in the current control of Tenant; (4) sublet any portion of the Premises; (5) grant any license, concession or other right of occupancy of any portion of the Premises; or (6) permit the occupancy of the Premises by any parties other than Tenant (any of the events listed in Section 10(a)(1) through Section 10(a)(6) being a Transfer).
(b) Consent Standards. Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its consent to any assignment or subletting of the Premises provided that Tenant is not then in default under the Lease and the proposed transferee: (1) is creditworthy as determined by Landlord in its good faith business judgment; (2) has a good reputation in the business community as determined by Landlord in its good faith business judgment; (3) will use the Premises for the Permitted Use and will not use the Premises for a purpose that would violate any exclusive use or other similar agreement entered into by Landlord with any other tenant of the Building; (4) will not use the Premises in a manner that would materially increase the pedestrian traffic to the Premises; (5) is not a governmental entity, or subdivision or agency thereof; (6) is not another occupant of the Building; and (7) is not a person or entity with whom Landlord is then, or has been within the six month period prior to the time Tenant seeks to enter into such assignment or subletting, negotiating to lease space in the Building, or any Affiliate of any such person or entity (all of the foregoing Section 10(b)(1) through Section 10(b)(7) being deemed reasonable bases for withholding consent). Landlord shall have no obligation to consent to any requested Transfer if Tenant is then in default under this Lease beyond applicable notice and cure periods.
(c) Request for Consent. If Tenant requests Landlords consent to a Transfer (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), then, at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of the proposed Transfer, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a written description of all terms and conditions of the proposed Transfer, copies of the proposed pertinent documentation, and the following information about the proposed transferee: name and address; reasonably satisfactory information about its business and business history; its proposed use of the Premises; banking, financial and other credit information; and general references sufficient to enable Landlord to determine the proposed transferees creditworthiness and character. Concurrently with Tenants notice of any request for consent to a Transfer, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a fee of $1,000 to defray Landlords expenses in reviewing such request, and Tenant shall also reimburse Landlord within thirty (30) days of request for Landlords reasonable attorneys fees incurred in connection with considering any request for consent to a Transfer, not to exceed $2,500 per request, provided, however, if Tenant requires more than two (2) rounds of comments, then such limit shall not apply. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to Tenants request for a Transfer within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of the materials and fee required by this Section 10(c). If Landlord fails to respond to Tenants request for a Transfer within such thirty (30) day period, Tenant may send a second written request, which request shall contain, in bold, capital letters, the following:
THIS NOTICE CONSTITUTES TENANTS SECOND NOTICE OF ITS REQUEST FOR CONSENT TO A TRANSFER PURSUANT TO SECTION 10(c) OF THE LEASE; LANDLORDS FAILURE TO RESPOND TO THIS NOTICE WITHIN TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS SHALL BE DEEMED LANDLORDS CONSENT TO THE REQUESTED TRANSFER. If Landlord fails to respond to such second notice within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of such notice, Tenants request for the applicable Transfer shall be deemed approved.
(d) Conditions to Consent. If Landlord consents to a proposed Transfer, then the proposed transferee shall deliver to Landlord a written agreement whereby it expressly assumes Tenants obligations hereunder; however, any transferee of less than all of the space in the Premises shall be liable only for obligations under this Lease that are properly allocable to the space subject to the Transfer for the period of the Transfer. No Transfer shall release Tenant from its obligations under this Lease, but rather Tenant and its transferee shall be jointly and severally liable therefor. Landlords consent to any Transfer shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent Transfers. If an Event of Default occurs while the Premises or any part thereof are subject to a Transfer, then Landlord, in addition to its other remedies, may collect directly from such transferee all rents becoming due to Tenant and apply such rents against Rent. Tenant authorizes its transferees to make payments of rent directly to Landlord upon receipt of notice from Landlord to do so following the occurrence of an Event of Default hereunder.
(e) Cancellation. Landlord may, within thirty (30) days after submission of Tenants written request for Landlords consent to an assignment or a sublease of fifty percent (50%) or more of the Premises, cancel this Lease as to the portion of the Premises proposed to be sublet or assigned as of the date the proposed Transfer is to be effective. If Landlord cancels this Lease as to any portion of the Premises, then this Lease shall cease for such portion of the Premises, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all Rent accrued through the cancellation date relating to the portion of the Premises covered by the proposed Transfer, and Rent shall be reduced proportionately based on the remaining square footage in the Premises. Thereafter, Landlord may lease such portion of the Premises to the prospective transferee (or to any other person) without liability to Tenant.
(f) Additional Compensation. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, immediately upon receipt thereof, fifty percent (50%) of the excess of all compensation received by Tenant for a Transfer over the Rent allocable to the portion of the Premises covered thereby, after deducting the following costs and expenses for such Transfer (which costs will be amortized over the term of the sublease or assignment pursuant to sound accounting principles and deducted monthly from such excess): (1) brokerage commissions (not to exceed commissions typically paid in the market at the time of such Transfer); (2) reasonable attorneys fees; and (3) the actual costs paid in making any improvements in the Premises required by any Transfer.
(g) Attornment by Subtenants. Each sublease by Tenant hereunder shall be subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease is or shall be subordinate, and each subtenant by entering into a sublease is deemed to have agreed that in the event of termination, re-entry or dispossession by Landlord under this Lease, Landlord may, at its option, either terminate the sublease or take over all of the right, title and interest of Tenant, as sublandlord, under such sublease, and such subtenant shall, at Landlords option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to the then executory provisions of such sublease, except that Landlord shall not be: (i) liable for any previous act or omission of Tenant under such sublease; (ii) subject to any counterclaim, offset or defense that such subtenant might have against Tenant; (iii) bound by any previous modification of such sublease or by any rent or additional rent or advance rent which such subtenant might have paid for more than the current month to Tenant, and all such rent shall remain due and owing, notwithstanding such advance payment; bound by any security or advance rental deposit made by such subtenant which is not delivered or paid over to Landlord and with respect to which such subtenant shall look solely to Tenant for refund or reimbursement; or (v) obligated to perform any work in the subleased space or to prepare it for occupancy, and in connection with such attornment, the subtenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord any instruments Landlord may reasonably request to evidence and confirm such attornment. Each subtenant or licensee of Tenant shall be deemed, automatically upon and as a condition of its occupying or using the Premises or any part thereof, to have agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 10(q). The provisions of this Section 10(q) shall be self-operative, and no further instrument shall be required to give effect to this provision.
(h) Waiver. Tenant hereby waives any suretyship defenses it may now or hereafter have to an action brought by Landlord including those contained in Sections 2787 through 2856, inclusive, 2899 and 3433 of the California Civil Code, as now or hereafter amended, or similar laws of like import.
(i) Permitted Transfers. Notwithstanding Section 10(a), Tenant may Transfer its interest in this Lease (a Permitted Transfer) to the following types of entities (a Permitted Transferee) without the written consent of Landlord:
(i) an Affiliate of Tenant;
(ii) any corporation, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, limited liability company or other business entity in which or with which Tenant, or its corporate successors or assigns, is merged or consolidated, in accordance with applicable statutory provisions governing merger and consolidation of business entities, so long as (A) Tenants obligations hereunder are assumed by the entity surviving such merger or created by such consolidation; and (B) the Tangible Net Worth of the surviving or created entity is not less than the Tangible Net Worth of Tenant as of as of the date of mutual execution of this Lease, or the date immediately prior to such Transfer, whichever is greater; or
(iii) any corporation, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, limited liability company or other business entity acquiring all or substantially all of Tenants equity interests or assets if such entitys Tangible Net Worth after such acquisition is not less than the Tangible Net Worth of Tenant as of the date of mutual execution of this Lease, or the date immediately prior to such Transfer, whichever is greater.
Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord of any such Permitted Transfer as soon as permitted by applicable Law. Tenant shall remain liable for the performance of all of the obligations of Tenant hereunder, or if Tenant no longer exists because of a merger, consolidation or acquisition, the surviving or acquiring entity shall expressly assume in writing the obligations of Tenant hereunder. Additionally, the Permitted Transferee shall comply with all of the terms and conditions of this Lease, including the Permitted Use, and the use of the Premises by the Permitted Transferee may not violate any other agreements affecting the Premises, the Building or the Project, Landlord or other tenants of the Project. No later than five (5) Business Days prior to the effective date of any Permitted Transfer (unless prior delivery is prohibited by applicable Law, in which event Tenant shall deliver the following as soon as permitted by applicable Law), Tenant agrees to furnish Landlord with (A) a copy of the instrument effecting such Permitted Transfer, (B) documentation establishing Tenants satisfaction of the requirements set forth above applicable to any such Transfer, and (C) evidence of insurance as required under this Lease with respect to the Permitted Transferee. The occurrence of a Permitted Transfer shall not waive Landlords rights as to any subsequent Transfers. Tangible Net Worth means the excess of total assets over total liabilities, in each case as determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding, however, from the determination of total assets all assets which would be classified as intangible assets under GAAP including goodwill, licenses, patents, trademarks, trade names, copyrights and franchises. Any subsequent Transfer by a Permitted Transferee shall be subject to the terms of this Section 10.
11. Insurance; Subrogation; Indemnity.
(a) Tenants Insurance Coverages. Effective as of the earlier of: (i) the date Tenant enters or occupies the Premises; or (ii) the Commencement Date, and continuing throughout the Term, Tenant shall maintain the following insurance policies: (A) commercial general liability insurance of not less than $3,000,000 per occurrence, with an annual aggregate limit of not less than $5,000,000, which shall apply on a per location basis, or, following the expiration of the initial Term, such other amounts as Landlord may from time to time reasonably require (and, if the use and occupancy of the Premises include any activity or matter that is or
may be excluded from coverage under a commercial general liability policy [e.g., the sale, service or consumption of alcoholic beverages], Tenant shall obtain such endorsements to the commercial general liability policy or otherwise obtain insurance to insure all liability arising from such activity or matter [including liquor liability, if applicable] in such amounts as Landlord may reasonably require), insuring Tenant, Landlord, Harvest, Cerberus and the Property Manager against all liability for injury to or death of a person or persons or damage to property arising from the use and occupancy of the Premises, with an additional insured endorsement in form CG 2026 04/13 (or another equivalent form approved in writing by Landlord); (B) Automobile Liability covering any owned, non-owned, leased, rented or borrowed vehicles of Tenant with limits no less than $1,000,000 combined single limit for property damage and bodily injury, naming Landlord, Harvest, Cerberus and the Property Manager as additional insureds; (C) Special Risk Property insurance, which shall include protection against loss or damage from earthquakes, covering the full value of all (x) Alterations installed by Tenant pursuant to Section 8(a) and (y) all furniture, trade fixtures and personal property in the Premises or otherwise placed on the Project by or on behalf of a Tenant Party; (D) contractual liability insurance sufficient to cover Tenants indemnity obligations hereunder (but only if such contractual liability insurance is not already included in Tenants commercial general liability insurance policy); (E) workers compensation insurance in amounts not less than statutorily required, and Employers Liability insurance with limits of not less than $1,000,000; (F) business interruption insurance in an amount that will reimburse Tenant for all direct or indirect loss of income attributable to all perils insured against by Tenants property insurance coverage, including the prevention of use of or access to the Premises, naming Tenant, Landlord, Harvest, Cerberus and Landlords Mortgagee as loss payees with respect to loss of rents coverage; (G) in the event Tenant performs any Alterations or repairs in, on or to the Premises, Builders Risk Insurance on a Special Risk basis (including collapse) on a completed value (non-reporting) form, or by endorsement including such coverage pursuant to Section 11(a)(C) hereinabove, for the full replacement value covering all work incorporated in the Building and all materials and equipment in or about the Premises; and (H) such other insurance or any changes or endorsements to the insurance required herein, including increased limits of coverage, as Landlord, or any mortgagee of Landlord, may reasonably require from time to time. Tenants insurance shall provide primary coverage to Landlord and shall not require contribution by any insurance maintained by Landlord, when any policy issued to Landlord provides duplicate or similar coverage, and in such circumstance Landlords policy will be excess over Tenants policy. Tenant shall furnish to Landlord certificates of such insurance, with an additional insured endorsement in form CG 2026 04/13 (or another equivalent form approved in writing by Landlord), and such other evidence satisfactory to Landlord of the maintenance of all insurance coverages required hereunder at least ten (10) days prior to the earlier of the Commencement Date or the date Tenant enters or occupies the Premises, and at least fifteen (15) days prior to each renewal of said insurance, and Tenant shall obtain a written obligation on the part of each insurance company to endeavor to notify Landlord at least thirty (30) days before cancellation or a material change of any such insurance policies. All such insurance policies shall be in form reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, and issued by companies licensed to do business in the State of California and with a Bests rating of A:VII or better. If Tenant fails to comply with the foregoing insurance requirements or to deliver to Landlord the certificates or evidence of coverage required herein, and such failure continues for more than five (5) days past written notice to Tenant, Landlord, in addition to any other remedy available pursuant to this Lease or otherwise, may, but shall not be obligated to, obtain such insurance and Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice, the premium costs thereof, plus an administrative fee of ten percent (10%) of such cost. It is expressly understood and agreed that (1) the foregoing minimum limits of insurance coverage shall not limit the liability of Tenant for its acts or omissions as provided in this Lease and (2) no lack or inadequacy of insurance by Tenant shall make Landlord subject to any claims by virtue of any theft, loss or damage to any uninsured or inadequately insured property.
(b) Landlords Insurance Coverages. Throughout the Term of this Lease, Landlord shall maintain, as a minimum, the following insurance policies: (1) property insurance for the Buildings replacement value (excluding property required to be insured by Tenant), less a commercially reasonable deductible if Landlord so chooses; and (2) commercial general liability insurance in an amount of not less than $3,000,000 per occurrence, $5,000,000 annual aggregate. Landlord may, but is not obligated to, maintain such other insurance and additional coverages as it may deem necessary, including protection against loss or damage from earthquakes. Tenant shall pay Tenants Proportionate Share of the cost of all insurance carried by Landlord with respect to the Project as part of Operating Costs. The foregoing insurance policies and any other insurance carried by Landlord shall be for the sole benefit of Landlord and under Landlords sole control, and Tenant shall have no right or claim to any proceeds thereof or any other rights thereunder.
(c) No Subrogation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, to the extent permitted by law and without affecting the coverage provided by insurance required to be maintained hereunder, Landlord and Tenant shall each agree to waive any right to recover against the other party (and the other partys agents, officers, directors, members, partners, employees, subtenants and assignees) on account of any and all claims it may have against the other party (and the other partys agents, officers, directors and employees) with respect to the insurance actually maintained, or required to be maintained hereunder, under Sections 11(a)(i) through (vi), inclusive, and to the extent proceeds are realized from such insurance coverage that are applied to such claims. Each policy described in this Lease shall contain a waiver of subrogation endorsement that provides that the waiver of any right to recovery shall not invalidate the policy in any way.
(d) Indemnity. Subject to Section 11(c), Tenant shall indemnify, defend (with counsel reasonably satisfactory to Landlord) and hold harmless the Indemnitees from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, causes of action, suits, judgments, damages and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees) and all losses and damages arising from: (1) any injury to or death of any person or the damage to or theft, destruction, loss or loss of use of any property or inconvenience arising from any occurrence in the Premises or the use of the Common Areas by any Tenant Party; or (2) Tenants failure to perform its obligations under this Lease, except to the extent any loss or damage is caused or alleged to be caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its agents. This indemnity shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. If any proceeding is filed for which indemnity is required hereunder, Tenant agrees, upon request therefor, to defend Landlord in such proceeding at its sole cost utilizing counsel reasonably satisfactory to Landlord.
12. Subordination; Attornment; Notice to Landlords Mortgagee.
(a) Subordination. This Lease shall be subject and subordinate to any deed of trust, mortgage or other security instrument (each, as renewed, modified and/or extended from time to time, a Mortgage), or any ground lease, master lease, or primary lease (each, as renewed, modified and/or extended from time to time, a Primary Lease), that now or hereafter covers all or any part of the Premises (the mortgagee under any such Mortgage, beneficiary under any such deed of trust, or the lessor under any such Primary Lease is referred to herein as a Landlords Mortgagee). Any Landlords Mortgagee may elect at any time, unilaterally, to make this Lease superior to its Mortgage, Primary Lease, or other interest in the Premises by so
notifying Tenant in writing. The provisions of this Section 12 shall be self-operative and no further instrument of subordination shall be required; however, in confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall execute and return to Landlord (or such other party designated by Landlord) within ten (10) Business Days after written request therefor such commercially reasonable documentation, in recordable form if required, as a Landlords Mortgagee may reasonably request to evidence the subordination of this Lease to such Landlords Mortgagees Mortgage or Primary Lease (including a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement) or, if the Landlords Mortgagee so elects, the subordination of such Landlords Mortgagees Mortgage or Primary Lease to this Lease. Notwithstanding any such subordination, Tenants right to possession of the Premises shall not be disturbed so long as Tenant is not in default under the terms of this Lease.
(b) Attornment. Tenant shall attorn to any party succeeding to Landlords interest in the Premises, whether by purchase, foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, power of sale, termination of lease, or otherwise, upon such partys request, and shall execute such agreements confirming such attornment as such party may reasonably request.
(c) Notice to Landlords Mortgagee. Tenant shall not seek to enforce any remedy it may have for any default on the part of Landlord without first giving written notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, specifying the default in reasonable detail, to any Landlords Mortgagee whose address has been given to Tenant in writing, and affording such Landlords Mortgagee a reasonable opportunity to perform Landlords obligations hereunder.
(d) Landlords Mortgagees Protection Provisions. If Landlords Mortgagee shall succeed to the interest of Landlord under this Lease, Landlords Mortgagee shall not be: (1) liable for any act or omission of any prior lessor (including Landlord); (2) bound by any rent or additional rent or advance rent which Tenant might have paid for more than one (1) month in advance to any prior lessor (including Landlord), and all such rent shall remain due and owing, notwithstanding such advance payment; (3) bound by any security or advance rental deposit made by Tenant which is not delivered or paid over to Landlords Mortgagee and with respect to which Tenant shall look solely to Landlord for refund or reimbursement; (4) bound by any termination, amendment or modification of this Lease made without Landlords Mortgagees consent and written approval, except for those terminations, amendments and modifications permitted to be made by Landlord without Landlords Mortgagees consent pursuant to the terms of the loan documents between Landlord and Landlords Mortgagee; (5) subject to the defenses which Tenant might have against any prior lessor (including Landlord); and (6) subject to the offsets which Tenant might have against any prior lessor (including Landlord) except for those offset rights which (A) are expressly provided in this Lease, (B) relate to periods of time following the acquisition of the Building by Landlords Mortgagee, and (C) Tenant has provided written notice to Landlords Mortgagee and provided Landlords Mortgagee a reasonable opportunity to cure the event giving rise to such offset event. Landlords Mortgagee shall have no liability or responsibility under or pursuant to the terms of this Lease or otherwise after it ceases to own an interest in the Building. Nothing in this Lease shall be construed to require Landlords Mortgagee to see to the application of the proceeds of any loan, and Tenants agreements set forth herein shall not be impaired on account of any modification of the documents evidencing and securing any loan.
13. Rules and Regulations. Tenant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the Building which are attached hereto as Exhibit D. Landlord may, from time to time, change such rules and regulations for the safety, care or cleanliness of the Project, provided that such changes are applicable to all tenants of the Building, will not unreasonably interfere with Tenants use of
the Premises and are enforced by Landlord in a non-discriminatory manner. Tenant shall comply with all modifications to the rules and regulations upon receipt of written notice thereof. Tenant shall be responsible for the compliance with such rules and regulations by each Tenant Party. In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Lease and such rules and regulations, the terms of this Lease shall control.
14. Condemnation. If the entire Building or Premises are taken by right of eminent domain or conveyed in lieu thereof (a Taking), this Lease shall terminate as of the date of the Taking. If any material portion, but less than all, of the Building becomes subject to a Taking, then Landlord may terminate this Lease by delivering written notice thereof to Tenant within thirty (30) days after such Taking, and Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such Taking. If Landlord does not so terminate this Lease, then this Lease will continue, but if any portion of the Premises has been taken, then Rent shall be abated on a reasonable basis as to that portion of the Premises rendered untenantable by the Taking. If any Taking occurs, then Landlord shall receive the entire award or other compensation for the Building, the Land, and any other improvements taken; however, Tenant may separately pursue a claim (to the extent it will not reduce Landlords award) against the condemnor for the value of Tenants personal property which Tenant is entitled to remove under this Lease, moving costs, loss of business, and other claims it may have. If the Lease is not terminated, Landlord shall proceed with reasonable diligence to restore the remaining part of the Premises and the Building substantially to their former condition to the extent feasible to constitute a complete and tenantable Premises and Building; provided, however, that Landlord shall only be required to reconstruct building standard leasehold improvements existing in the Premises as of the date of the Taking, and Tenant shall be required to pay the cost for restoring any other leasehold improvements. In no event shall Landlord be required to spend more than the condemnation proceeds received by Landlord for such repair. The rights contained in this Section 14 shall be Tenants sole and exclusive remedy in the event of a taking or condemnation. Landlord and Tenant each waives the provisions of Sections 1265.130 and 1265.150 of the California Code of Civil Procedure and the provisions of any successor or other law of like import.
15. Fire or Other Casualty. If the Premises or the Building are damaged by fire or other casualty (a Casualty), Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to Tenant within sixty (60) days after such Casualty a good faith estimate (the Damage Notice) of the time needed to repair the damage caused by such Casualty. If a material portion of the Premises is damaged by Casualty such that Tenant is prevented from conducting its business in the Premises in a manner reasonably comparable to that conducted immediately before such Casualty and Landlord estimates that the damage caused thereby cannot be repaired within two hundred seventy (270) days after the commencement of repairs (the Repair Period), then Tenant may terminate this Lease by delivering written notice to Landlord of its election to terminate within thirty (30) days after the Damage Notice has been delivered to Tenant. If a Casualty damages the Premises or a material portion of the Building and (a) Landlord estimates that the damage to the Premises cannot be repaired within the Repair Period; (b) the damage occurs during the last twelve (12) months of the Term; (c) regardless of the extent of damage to the Premises, Landlord makes a good faith determination that restoring the Building would be uneconomical; or (d) Landlord is required to pay any insurance proceeds arising out of the Casualty to a Landlords Mortgagee, then Landlord may terminate this Lease by giving written notice of its election to terminate within thirty (30) days after the Damage Notice has been delivered to Tenant. If neither party elects to terminate this Lease following a Casualty, then Landlord shall, within a reasonable time after such Casualty, begin to repair the Premises and shall proceed with reasonable diligence to restore the Premises to substantially the same condition as they existed immediately before such Casualty; however, other than building
standard leasehold improvements, Landlord shall not be required to repair or replace any Alterations within the Premises (which shall be promptly and with due diligence repaired and restored by Tenant at Tenants sole cost and expense) or any furniture, equipment, trade fixtures or personal property of Tenant or others in the Premises or the Building, and Landlords obligation to repair or restore the Premises shall be limited to the extent of the insurance proceeds actually received by Landlord for the Casualty in question. If the Premises are damaged by Casualty, Rent for the portion of the Premises rendered untenantable by the damage shall be abated on a reasonable basis from the date of damage until the completion of Landlords repairs (or until the date of termination of this Lease by Landlord or Tenant as provided above, as the case may be), unless a Tenant Party caused such damage, in which case, Tenant shall continue to pay Rent without abatement. The rights contained in this Section 15 shall be Tenants sole and exclusive remedy in the event of a Casualty. Tenant hereby waives the provisions of Sections 1932(2) and 1933(4) of the California Civil Code and the provisions of any successor or other law of like import.
16. Personal Property Taxes. Tenant shall be liable for all taxes levied or assessed against personal property, furniture or fixtures placed by Tenant in the Premises. If any taxes for which Tenant is liable are levied or assessed against Landlord or Landlords property and Landlord elects to pay the same, or if the assessed value of Landlords property is increased by inclusion of such personal property, furniture or fixtures and Landlord elects to pay the taxes based on such increase, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within thirty (30) days following written request therefor, the part of such taxes for which Tenant is primarily liable hereunder.
17. Events of Default. Each of the following occurrences shall be an Event of Default:
(a) Payment Default. Tenants failure to pay Rent within three (3) days after Tenants receipt of Landlords written notice that the same is due; provided, however, Landlord shall not be obligated to provide written notice of failure to timely pay Rent more than once in any calendar year, and each subsequent failure to timely pay Rent shall be an Event of Default if Rent is not received within three (3) days after the same is due; provided further, such notice shall be in lieu of, and not in addition to, any notice required under Section 1161 et seq. of the California Code of Civil Procedure;
(b) Abandonment. Tenant abandons the Premises, abandonment being defined as Tenants vacation of persons and effects from all or substantially all of the Premises for a period of fourteen (14) or more consecutive days while in default in the payment of Rent;
(c) Insurance. Tenant fails to procure, maintain or deliver to Landlord evidence of the insurance policies and coverages as required under Section 8(b)(iii) and Section 11(a) and such failure continues for more than five (5) days past written notice to Tenant;
(d) Estoppel/Financial Statement/Commencement Date Memorandum. Tenant fails to provide: (i) any estoppel certificate after Landlords written request therefor pursuant to Section 25(d); (ii) any financial statement after Landlords written request therefor pursuant to Section 25(e); or (iii) the Commencement Date Memorandum in the form of Exhibit E as required by Section 3, and in each case such failure shall continue for five (5) calendar days after Landlords second (2nd) written notice thereof to Tenant;
(e) Mechanics Liens. Tenant fails to pay and release of record, or diligently contest and bond around, any mechanics lien filed against the Premises or the Project for any work performed, materials furnished, or obligation incurred by or at the request of Tenant, within the time and in the manner required by Section 8(c);
(f) Parking Violations. Tenant fails to cure (or fails to cause to cure) a violation of the terms and conditions relating to parking within three (3) days after Landlords written notice thereof to Tenant;
(g) Other Defaults. Tenants failure to perform, comply with, or observe any other agreement or obligation of Tenant under this Lease and the continuance of such failure for a period of thirty (30) days or more after Landlord has delivered to Tenant written notice thereof, which notice shall be in lieu of, and not in addition to, any notice required under Section 1161 et seq. of the California Code of Civil Procedure; provided, however, if such default is of the type which cannot reasonably be cured within thirty (30) days, then Tenant shall have such longer time as is reasonably necessary provided Tenant commences to cure within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice from Landlord and diligently prosecutes such cure to completion within ninety (90) days of such notice;
(h) Insolvency. The filing of a petition by or against Tenant or any guarantor hereunder: (1) in any bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding; (2) seeking any relief under any state or federal debtor relief law; (3) for the appointment of a liquidator or receiver for all or substantially all of Tenants property or for Tenants interest in this Lease; or (4) for the reorganization or modification of Tenants capital structure; however, if such a petition is filed against Tenant or any such guarantor, then such filing shall not be an Event of Default unless Tenant (or such guarantor) fails to have the proceedings initiated by such petition dismissed within sixty (60) days after the filing thereof; and
(i) Failure to Obtain Landlords Consent. Tenants failure to obtain Landlords prior written consent for any matter as required under this Lease, including, without limitation, any Alteration or Transfer of this Lease, shall be deemed, without the need for any notice from Landlord, an immediate Event of Default.
18. Remedies. Upon any Event of Default, Landlord may, in addition to all other rights and remedies afforded Landlord hereunder or by law or equity, take any one or more of the following actions:
(a) Termination of Lease. Terminate this Lease by giving Tenant written notice thereof, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord and Landlord may recover from Tenant: (i) the worth at the time of award of any unpaid Rent which had been earned at the time of such termination; plus (ii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss Tenant proves reasonably could have been avoided; plus (iii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves reasonably could be avoided; plus (iv) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all detriment proximately caused by Tenants failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course would be likely to result therefrom; plus (v) at Landlords election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by applicable California law. As used in clauses (i) and (ii) above, the worth at the time of award is computed by allowing interest at the Default Rate. As used in clause (iii) above, the worth at the time of award is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%).
Forbearance by Landlord to enforce one or more of the remedies herein provided upon an Event of Default shall not be deemed or construed to constitute a waiver of such default. Tenant hereby waives for Tenant and for all those claiming under Tenant all rights now or hereafter existing to redeem by order or judgment of any court or by any legal process or writ, Tenants right of occupancy of the Premises after any termination of this Lease. If Landlord elects to proceed under this Section 18(a), Landlord may remove all of Tenants property from the Premises (which shall be deemed abandoned by Tenant) and store the same in a public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of, and for the account of, Tenant, without becoming liable for any loss or damage which may be occasioned thereby. If and to the extent required by applicable Law, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to relet the Premises on such terms as Landlord in its sole discretion may determine (including a term different from the Term, rental concessions, and alterations to, and improvement of, the Premises); however, Landlord shall not be obligated to expend funds in connection with reletting the Premises, nor to relet the Premises before leasing other portions of the Building, and Landlord shall not be obligated to accept any prospective tenant proposed by Tenant unless such proposed tenant meets all of Landlords leasing criteria. Tenant shall not be entitled to the excess of any consideration obtained by reletting over the Rent due hereunder.
(b) Continue Lease in Effect. In addition to all other rights and remedies provided Landlord in this Lease and by Law, Landlord shall have the remedy described in California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (Landlord may continue the Lease in effect after Tenants breach and abandonment and recover Rents as they become due if Tenant has the right to sublet or assign the Lease, subject to reasonable limitations).
(c) Perform Acts on Behalf of Tenant. Perform any act Tenant is obligated to perform under the terms of this Lease (and enter upon the Premises in connection therewith if necessary) in Tenants name and on Tenants behalf, without being liable for any claim for damages therefor, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord on demand for any expenses which Landlord may incur in thus effecting compliance with Tenants obligations under this Lease (including, but not limited to, collection costs and legal expenses), plus interest thereon at the Default Rate.
(d) Cumulative Remedies. Any and all remedies set forth in this Lease: (1) shall be in addition to any and all other remedies Landlord may have at law or in equity; (2) shall be cumulative; and (3) may be pursued successively or concurrently as Landlord may elect. The exercise of any remedy by Landlord shall not be deemed an election of remedies or preclude Landlord from exercising any other remedies in the future.
(e) No Waiver. Landlords acceptance of Rent following an Event of Default shall not waive Landlords rights regarding such Event of Default. No waiver by Landlord of any violation or breach of any of the terms contained herein shall waive Landlords rights regarding any future violation of such term. Landlords acceptance of any partial payment of Rent shall not waive Landlords rights with regard to the remaining portion of the Rent that is due, regardless of any endorsement or other statement on any instrument delivered in payment of Rent or any writing delivered in connection therewith; accordingly, Landlords acceptance of a partial payment of Rent shall not constitute an accord and satisfaction of the full amount of the Rent that is due.
(f) Payment by Tenant. Upon any Event of Default, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all costs incurred by Landlord (including court costs and reasonable attorneys fees and expenses incurred) in: (1) obtaining possession of the Premises; (2) removing and storing Tenants or any other occupants property; (3) repairing, restoring, altering or otherwise putting
the Premises into condition acceptable for leasing to prospective tenants; (4) if Tenant is dispossessed of the Premises and this Lease is not terminated, reletting all or any part of the Premises (including brokerage commissions, cost of tenant finish work, and other costs incidental to such reletting); (5) performing Tenants obligations which Tenant failed to perform; and (6) enforcing, or advising Landlord of, its rights, remedies and recourses arising out of the Event of Default.
(g) No Designation. To the extent allowed by Law, if Tenant is in arrears in payment of Rent, Tenant waives its right, if any, to designate the items to which any payments made by Tenant are to be credited, and Landlord may apply any payments made by Tenant to such items as Landlord sees fit, irrespective of any designation or request by Tenant as to the items to which any such payments shall be credited.
(h) No Counterclaims. To the extent allowed by Law, Tenant shall not interpose any counterclaim (other than a compulsory counterclaim) in any summary proceeding commenced by Landlord to recover possession of the Premises and shall not seek to consolidate such proceeding with any action which may have been or will be brought by Tenant or any other person or entity.
(i) Attorneys Fees. If either Landlord or Tenant brings an action to enforce the terms hereof or declare rights hereunder, the prevailing party in any such action, or appeal thereon, shall be entitled to its reasonable attorneys fees and court costs to be paid by the losing party as fixed by the court in the same or separate suit, and whether or not such action is pursued to decision or judgment. Landlord shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys fees and costs incurred in the preparation and service of notices of default and consultations in connection therewith, whether or not a legal action is subsequently commenced in connection with such default.
(j) Waiver of Trial by Jury. Landlord and Tenant each knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally waive the right to a trial by jury with respect to any litigation arising out of this Lease.
19. Landlord Defaults; Landlords Liability. Landlord shall not be in default under this Lease unless Landlord has failed to begin and pursue with reasonable diligence the cure of any failure of Landlord to meet its obligations under this Lease within thirty (30) days of the receipt by Landlord of written notice from Tenant specifying Landlords alleged failure to perform (and an additional reasonable time after such receipt if (i) such failure cannot be cured within such thirty (30)-day period, and (ii) Landlord commences curing such failure within such thirty (30)-day period and thereafter diligently pursues the curing of such failure). In no event shall Tenant have the right to terminate or rescind this Lease as a result of Landlords default. Tenant waives such remedies of termination or rescission and agrees that Tenants remedies for default under this Lease and for breach of any promise or inducement are limited to a suit for damages and/or injunction. In addition, Tenant shall, prior to the exercise of any such remedies, provide each Landlords Mortgagee (in each instance, only as to those entities of which Tenant has written notice of their interest) with written notice and reasonable time to cure any default by Landlord. The liability of Landlord (and its partners, shareholders or members) to Tenant (or any person or entity claiming by, through or under Tenant) for any default by Landlord under the terms of this Lease or any matter relating to or arising out of the occupancy or use of the Premises and/or other areas of the Project shall be limited to Tenants actual direct, but not consequential (or other speculative) damages therefor and shall be recoverable only from the interest of Landlord in the Project, and Landlord and its partners, shareholders or members shall not be personally liable for any deficiency.
20. Holding Over. If Tenant fails to vacate the Premises at the end of the Term, then Tenant shall be a tenant at sufferance and, in addition to all other damages and remedies to which Landlord may be entitled for such holding over: (a) Tenant shall pay, in addition to the other Rent, Base Rent equal to (i) one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Base Rent payable during the last month of the Term for the first thirty (30) days of holdover, and (ii) two hundred percent (200%) of the Base Rent payable during the last month of the Term for any holdover period thereafter; and (b) Tenant shall otherwise continue to be subject to all of Tenants obligations under this Lease. The provisions of this Section 20 shall not be deemed to limit or constitute a waiver of any other rights or remedies of Landlord provided herein or at Law. If Tenant fails to surrender the Premises upon the termination or expiration of this Lease, in addition to any other liabilities to Landlord accruing therefrom, Tenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from all loss, costs (including reasonable attorneys fees) and liability resulting from such failure, including any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded upon such failure to surrender, and any lost profits to Landlord resulting therefrom. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant holds over with Landlords express written consent, then Tenant shall be a month-to-month tenant and Tenant shall pay, in addition to the other Rent, Base Rent equal to one hundred twenty five percent (125%) of the Base Rent payable during the last month of the Term.
21. Surrender of Premises. No act by Landlord shall be deemed an acceptance of a surrender of the Premises, and no agreement to accept a surrender of the Premises shall be valid unless it is in writing and signed by Landlord. At the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant shall: (i) deliver the Premises to Landlord with all improvements located therein in good repair and condition, broom-clean, free of Hazardous Materials placed on the Premises by Tenant or a Tenant Party during the Term, reasonable wear and tear (and condemnation and Casualty damage, as to which Section 14 and Section 15 shall control) excepted; (ii) remove any Alterations installed in the Premises in accordance with the provisions of Section 8(a) above; (iii) remove all unattached trade fixtures, furniture and personal property placed in the Premises by Tenant; and (iv) deliver to Landlord all keys (including electronic card keys) to the Premises and the Building. Tenant, at Tenants sole expense, shall remove all wiring and cabling installed by or on behalf of Tenant to the main point of entry. Tenant shall repair all damage caused by such removal. All items not so removed shall, at Landlords option, be deemed to have been abandoned by Tenant and may be appropriated, sold, stored, destroyed, or otherwise disposed of by Landlord at Tenants cost without notice to Tenant and without any obligation to account for such items. The provisions of this Section 21 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.
22. Certain Rights Reserved by Landlord. Landlord shall have the following rights: (i) upon at least 24 hours prior written notice (email notice being acceptable), to perform maintenance and repairs, and to make inspections, alterations, additions, changes or improvements, whether structural or otherwise, in and about the Project, or any part thereof; to enter upon the Premises (after giving Tenant reasonable notice thereof, which may be oral notice, except in cases of real or apparent emergency, in which case no notice shall be required) for any of the foregoing purposes and, during the performance of any such work therein, to temporarily close doors, lobbies, public space and corridors in the Building; (iii) upon at least 24 hours prior written notice (email notice being acceptable), to interrupt or temporarily suspend Building services and facilities as reasonably necessary; (iv) to change the arrangement and location of entrances or passageways, doors, and doorways, corridors, elevators, stairs, restrooms or other public parts of the Building; (v) to take such reasonable access control measures as Landlord
deems advisable; provided, however, that any such access control measures are for Landlords own protection, and Tenant acknowledges that Landlord is not a guarantor of the security or safety of any Tenant Party or of Tenants personal property, and that all such security matters are the sole responsibility of Tenant; (vi) to require the evacuation of the Building for cause, suspected cause, or for drill purposes; (vii) to temporarily deny access to the Building and to close the Building after Normal Business Hours and on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays, subject, however, to Tenants right to enter when the Building is closed after Normal Business Hours pursuant to such reasonable rules and regulations as Landlord may prescribe from time to time; (viii) to enter the Premises at all reasonable hours to perform Landlords repair and maintenance obligations under this Lease or to perform environmental testing; (ix) upon at least 24 hours prior written notice (email notice being acceptable), to enter the Premises at all reasonable hours to show the Premises to prospective purchasers or lenders; (x) at any time during the last six (6) months of the Term or at any time following the occurrence of an Event of Default, to enter the Premises at all reasonable hours to show the Premises to prospective tenants; and (xi) to change the name and/or street address of the Building. In conducting the foregoing activities, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenants business operations and access to the Premises and parking areas. With respect to all of the foregoing, Landlord shall retain a key for all of the doors for the Premises, excluding Tenants vaults, safes and files. Landlord shall have the right to use any and all means to open the doors to the Premises in an emergency in order to obtain entry thereto without liability to Tenant therefor. Any entry to the Premises by Landlord by any of the foregoing means, or otherwise, in conformance with this Section 22, shall not be construed or deemed to be a forcible or unlawful entry into or a detainer of the Premises, or an eviction, partial eviction or constructive eviction of Tenant from the Premises or any portion thereof, and shall not relieve Tenant of its obligations hereunder.
23. Substitution of Space. Landlord may, at Landlords expense, upon not less than ninety (90) days notice to Tenant, relocate Tenant within the Building to space which is comparable in size, condition, improvements, layout and access to the Premises. If Landlord relocates Tenant, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for Tenants reasonable out of pocket expenses for moving Tenants furniture, equipment, and supplies from the Premises to the relocation space and for reprinting Tenants stationery of the same quality and quantity as Tenants stationery supply on hand immediately before Landlords notice to Tenant of the exercise of this relocation right. Upon such relocation, the relocation space shall be deemed to be the Premises and the terms of the Lease shall remain in full force and shall apply to the relocation space, it being agreed that if the size of the new premises is larger than the size of the original Premises, Tenants Base Rent shall not be adjusted; however, if the size of the new premises is smaller than the size of the original Premises, Tenants Base Rent shall be decreased. No amendment or other instrument shall be necessary to effectuate the relocation contemplated by this Section; however, if requested by Landlord, Tenant shall execute an appropriate amendment document within ten (10) days after Landlords written request therefor. If Tenant fails to execute such relocation amendment within such time period, or if Tenant fails to relocate within the time period stated in Landlords relocation notice to Tenant, then Landlord may terminate this Lease by notifying Tenant in writing thereof at least thirty (30) days prior to the termination date contained in Landlords termination notice. Time is of the essence with respect to Tenants obligations under this Section.
24. Hazardous Materials.
(a) Compliance with Laws. During the Term of this Lease, Tenant shall comply with all Environmental Laws (as defined in Section 24(i) below) applicable to the operation or use of the Premises, will cause all other persons occupying or using the Premises to comply with all such Environmental Laws, and will immediately pay or cause to be paid all costs and expenses incurred by reason of such compliance.
(b) No Generation. Tenant shall not generate, use, treat, store, handle, release or dispose of, or permit the generation, use, treatment, storage, handling, release or disposal of Hazardous Materials (as defined in Section 24(i) hereof) on the Premises, or the Project, or transport or permit the transportation of Hazardous Materials to or from the Premises or the Project except for limited quantities of household cleaning products and office supplies used or stored at the Premises and required in connection with the routine operation and maintenance of the Premises, and used and stored in compliance with all applicable Environmental Laws.
(c) Environmental Assessment. At any time and from time to time during the Term of this Lease, Landlord may perform an environmental site assessment report concerning the Premises, prepared by an environmental consulting firm chosen by Landlord, indicating the presence or absence of Hazardous Materials caused or permitted by Tenant and the potential cost of any compliance, removal or remedial action in connection with any such Hazardous Materials on the Premises. Subject to Section 22 above, Tenant shall grant and hereby grants to Landlord and its agents access to the Premises and specifically grants Landlord an irrevocable non-exclusive license to undertake such an assessment. If such assessment report indicates the presence of Hazardous Materials caused or permitted by Tenant or any Tenant Party, then such report shall be at Tenants sole cost and expense, and the cost of such assessment shall be immediately due and payable within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice therefor.
(d) Environmental Claims. Tenant will promptly advise Landlord in writing upon becoming aware of any of the following: (1) any pending or threatened Environmental Claim (as defined in Section 24(i) below) against Tenant relating to the Premises or the Project; (2) any condition or occurrence on the Premises or the Project that (a) results in noncompliance by Tenant with any applicable Environmental Law, or (b) could reasonably be anticipated to form the basis of an Environmental Claim against Tenant or Landlord or the Premises; (3) any condition or occurrence on the Premises or any property adjoining the Premises that could reasonably be anticipated to cause the Premises to be subject to any restrictions on the ownership, occupancy, use or transferability of the Premises under any Environmental Law; and (4) the actual or anticipated taking of any removal or remedial action by Tenant in response to the actual or alleged presence of any Hazardous Material on the Premises or the Project. All such notices shall describe in reasonable detail the nature of the claim, investigation, condition, occurrence or removal or remedial action and Tenants response thereto. In addition, Tenant will provide Landlord with copies of all communications regarding the Premises with any governmental agency relating to Environmental Laws, all such communications with any person relating to Environmental Claims, and such detailed reports of any such Environmental Claim as may reasonably be requested by Landlord.
(e) Intentionally Deleted.

(a) the actual or alleged presence of Hazardous Materials on the Project which is caused or permitted by Tenant or a Tenant Party and (b) any Environmental Claim relating in any way to Tenants operation or use of the Premises (the Hazardous Materials Indemnified Matters). The provisions of this Section 24 shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.
(g) Payment on Indemnified Matters. To the extent that the undertaking in the preceding paragraph may be unenforceable because it is violative of any law or public policy, Tenant will contribute the maximum portion that it is permitted to pay and satisfy under applicable Law to the payment and satisfaction of all Hazardous Materials Indemnified Matters incurred by the Indemnitees.
(h) Interest. All sums paid and costs incurred by Landlord with respect to any Hazardous Materials Indemnified Matter shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date so paid or incurred until reimbursed by Tenant, and all such sums and costs shall be immediately due and payable on demand.

(a) Landlord Transfer. Landlord may transfer any portion of the Project and any of its rights under this Lease. If Landlord transfers its interest in the Lease, Landlord may assign the Letter of Credit (and any Drawn Amount) to the transferee and, upon such transfer (and the delivery to Tenant of an acknowledgment of the transferees responsibility for the Letter
of Credit and any Drawn Amount if required by Law), Landlord thereafter shall have no further liability for the return of the Letter of Credit and any Drawn Amount. Furthermore, if Landlord assigns its rights under this Lease, then Landlord shall thereby be released from any further obligations hereunder arising after the date of transfer, provided that the assignee assumes Landlords obligations hereunder in writing.
(b) Brokerage. Neither Landlord nor Tenant has dealt with any broker or agent in connection with the negotiation or execution of this Lease, other than the brokers identified in the Basic Lease Information (the Brokers). Landlord shall pay commissions to such Brokers pursuant to a separate written agreement. Each of Landlord and Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold the other harmless from and against all costs, expenses, attorneys fees, liens and other liability for commissions or other compensation claimed by any other broker or agent claiming the same by, through or under the indemnifying party.

(e) Financial Statements. Within fifteen (15) days after Landlords written request, Tenant will furnish Tenants most recent audited financial statements (including any notes to them) to Landlord, or, if no such audited statements have been prepared, such other financial statements (and notes to them) as may have been prepared by an independent certified public accountant or, failing those, Tenants internally prepared financial statements. If Tenant is a publicly traded corporation, Tenant may satisfy its obligations hereunder by providing to Landlord Tenants most recent annual and quarterly reports. Landlord will not disclose any aspect of Tenants financial statements that Tenant designates to Landlord as confidential except: (1) to Landlords Mortgagee or prospective mortgagees or purchasers of the Building; (2) to Landlords advisors and consultants; (3) in litigation between Landlord and Tenant; and (4) if required by court order.

(h) Amendments; Binding Effect. This Lease may not be amended except by instrument in writing signed by Landlord and Tenant. No provision of this Lease shall be deemed to have been waived by Landlord unless such waiver is in writing signed by Landlord, and no custom or practice which may evolve between the parties in the administration of the terms hereof shall waive or diminish the right of Landlord to insist upon the performance by Tenant in strict accordance with the terms hereof. The terms and conditions contained in this Lease shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto, and their respective successors and assigns.
(i) Quiet Enjoyment. Provided Tenant has performed all of its obligations hereunder, Tenant shall peaceably and quietly hold and enjoy the Premises for the Term, without hindrance from Landlord or any party claiming by, through or under Landlord, subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease.

(n) Landlords Fees. Whenever Tenant requests Landlord to take any action not required of it hereunder or give any consent required or permitted under this Lease, Tenant will reimburse Landlord for Landlords reasonable, out-of-pocket costs payable to third parties and incurred by Landlord in reviewing the proposed action or consent, including reasonable attorneys, engineers or architects fees, within thirty (30) days after Landlords delivery to Tenant of a statement of such costs. Tenant will be obligated to make such reimbursement without regard to whether Landlord consents to any such proposed action.

Landlord and Tenant (if a corporation, partnership or other business entity) hereby represents and warrants to the other party that it is a duly formed and existing entity qualified to do business in the State of California, that Tenant has full right and authority to execute and deliver this Lease, and that each person signing on its behalf is authorized to do so.
(q) Renovation of Protect. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has the right to renovate or remodel the Project or any portion thereof, and in such event portions of the Project may from time to time be under construction following Tenants occupancy of the Premises; Tenant acknowledges that any such construction may result in levels of noise, dust and obstruction of access which are in excess of that present in a fully-constructed project. In connection with such construction, Landlord may, among other things, erect scaffolding or other necessary structures at the Project. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize interference with or disruption to the operation of Tenants business in the Premises during the performance of the any such work; provided, however, that Landlord shall be permitted to perform the work during normal business hours and shall not be required to pay for overtime labor nor shall Tenant be entitled to any abatement of Rent in connection with the performance of any such work. Tenant acknowledges that, notwithstanding Landlords efforts to minimize interference with the operation of Tenants business in the Premises during the performance of such work, the work may nonetheless interfere with or disrupt the conduct of Tenants business at the Premises. Tenant agrees not to assert (and hereby waives) any and all claims of constructive eviction, or for damage to or interference with Tenants business, or for inconvenience or annoyance which may arise in connection with or as a result of such work.
(r) OSHA Regulations. Tenant acknowledges that it has been notified of the presence or potential presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and materials designated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as presumed asbestos-containing materials (PACM) located in the Premises, the Building or the Project. The following materials must, in accordance with OSHA regulations, be treated as PACM: any thermal system insulation and surfacing material that is sprayed on, troweled on, or applied in some other manner, as well as any resilient flooring material installed in 1980 or earlier. Upon written request by Tenant, Landlord shall provide Tenant with copies of any information pertaining to ACM or PACM in Landlords files.
(s) Disclaimers. Landlord and Tenant expressly disclaim any implied warranty that the Premises are suitable for Tenants intended commercial purpose, and Tenants obligation to pay Rent hereunder is not dependent upon the condition of the Premises or the performance by Landlord of its obligations hereunder, and, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, Tenant shall continue to pay the Rent, without abatement, demand, setoff or deduction, notwithstanding any breach by Landlord of its duties or obligations hereunder, whether express or implied. Furthermore, Tenant does not rely on, nor does Landlord make any representation regarding any specific tenant or number of tenants occupying space in the Project at any time.
(t) Entire Agreement. This Lease constitutes the entire agreement between Landlord and Tenant regarding the subject matter hereof and supersedes all oral statements and prior writings relating thereto. Except for those set forth in this Lease, no representations, warranties or agreements have been made by Landlord or Tenant to the other with respect to this Lease or the obligations of Landlord or Tenant in connection therewith. The normal rule of construction that any ambiguities be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply to the interpretation of this Lease or any exhibits or amendments hereto.
(u) No Offer. The submission of this Lease to Tenant shall not be construed as an offer, and Tenant shall not have any rights under this Lease unless Landlord executes a copy of this Lease and delivers it to Tenant.
(v) Civil Code Section 1938 Advisory. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge and agree that the Premises have not been inspected by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) pursuant to Section 1938 of the Civil Code (Code). The parties further agree, pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 55.53 of the Code the following:
(i) A CASp can inspect the Premises and determine whether the Premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law. Although state law does not require a CASp inspection of the Premises, Landlord may not prohibit Tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the Premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of Tenant, if requested by the Tenant. The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of the CASp inspection, the payment of the fee for the CASp inspection, and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of the construction-related accessibility standards within the Premises.
(ii) Pursuant to the paragraph above, the parties expressly agree that, if Tenant elects to obtain a CASp inspection of the Premises, Tenant shall be solely responsible for scheduling the inspection and that such inspection shall not unreasonably interfere with the operations of the Premises and/or Building or disturb any other tenant or occupant. Tenant shall be solely responsible for any and all costs to perform the CASp inspection, including any ancillary costs relating thereto. If the results of the inspection determine that modifications or alterations are required to meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards, Tenant agrees to perform such work, in its sole cost and expense and provided approvals from Landlord are obtained under Section 8 of the Lease, as required. Tenant agrees that all work shall be performed in a first class manner in compliance with all laws and using best efforts to minimize any disruption to the Building and other tenants or occupants, if applicable. Furthermore, Tenant agrees that any report that is generated as a result of an inspection pursuant to this section and all information contained therein, shall remain confidential, except as necessary for Tenant to complete repairs and/or correct violations, as agreed herein.
(w) Proposition 65. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that it is exclusively responsible for compliance with Californias Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as Proposition 65) on the Premises. Tenant specifically agrees that it is responsible to determine whether the Premises require Proposition 65 warning(s), and when warning obligation(s) are triggered, Tenant must provide clear and reasonable Proposition 65 warnings to persons as provided in the Proposition 65 statutes and regulations. Both parties expressly acknowledge that Landlord is not responsible to assess the Premises for compliance with Proposition 65 or review the adequacy of warnings provided by Tenant. To the extent the Premises are leased to Tenant with Proposition 65 warnings already thereon, these warnings are not a representation by Landlord that the Premises are currently compliant with Proposition 65, and Tenant expressly agrees it retains responsibility to maintain, update, and supplement those warnings, as is necessary for compliance.
(x) Parking. Tenant shall use no more than the number of parking spaces set forth in the Basic Lease Information, subject to Tenants compliance with the terms and conditions set forth on the attached Exhibit D and shall be subject to such other agreement between Landlord and Tenant as may hereinafter be established; provided, however, if at any time during the Term, Tenant ceases to pay any amounts owed for one (1) or more of the parking spaces provided to Tenant, then Tenant shall have no further right to use such parking space(s).
(y) Conference Room. Landlord currently operates a shared conference facility (the Conference Center) on the ground floor of the Building, which Conference Center is currently available for use by all tenants of the Building, at the current rates set by Landlord from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion, on a first come, first serve basis. So long as Landlord continues to offer the Conference Center for non-exclusive use by tenants of the Building, and provided there is no Event of Default, Tenant shall have a non-exclusive right to use the Conference Center, subject to availability, as determined by Landlord in its sole and absolute discretion. Such right to use the Conference Center shall be subject to all rules and regulations regarding the use of the Conference Center as Landlord may impose from time to time, including, without limitation, restrictions on frequency, hours and length of use, payment of a fee for such and cleaning and trash dispensing requirements.

DIAGRAM OF PREMISES
STANDARDS FOR SERVICES AND UTILITIES
The following Standards for Services and Utilities are in effect. Landlord reserves the right to adopt nondiscriminatory modifications and additions hereto. As long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under any of the terms of this Lease, Landlord shall use all reasonable efforts to:
(a) Provide janitorial services to the Premises on Business Days, provided the same are kept reasonably in order by Tenant, and such window washing as may from time to time be reasonably required. Tenant shall pay to Landlord the cost of removal of any of Tenants refuse and rubbish, to the extent that the same exceeds the refuse and rubbish typical of the use of the Premises as offices.
(b) Replace standard light bulbs and fluorescent tubes, provided that Landlords standard charge for such bulbs and tubes shall be paid by Tenant.
(c) Provide reasonable lighting to the Building lobby, elevator lobbies, stairwells, hallways and restrooms at all times.
(d) Furnish water to the public areas for drinking and lavatory purposes only.
(e) Provide non-attended automatic elevator facilities during Normal Business Hours, and have one elevator available at all other times.
(f) During Normal Business Hours (and at other times for a reasonable additional charge established by Landlord for the Project from time to time), ventilate the Premises and furnish heat or air conditioning on such days and hours when, in the reasonable judgment of Landlord, it may be required for the comfortable occupancy of the Premises. Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord with respect to, and to abide by all reasonable regulations and requirements which Landlord may prescribe for, the proper functioning and protection of the Building HVAC system. Tenant agrees that neither Tenant nor any Tenant Party shall at any time enter mechanical installations or facilities of the Project or adjust, tamper with, touch or otherwise in any manner affect said installations or facilities. If Tenant uses machines or equipment in the Premises or any server room which affect the temperature otherwise maintained by the air conditioning system, Landlord may install supplemental air conditioning units or other supplemental equipment in the Premises or the server room (including supplemental metering devices), and the cost thereof, including the cost of installation, operation, use and maintenance, shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord within thirty (30) days after Landlord has delivered to Tenant an invoice therefor. The cost of maintenance and service calls to adjust and regulate the air conditioning system shall be charged to Tenant if the need for maintenance work results from either Tenants adjustment of room thermostats or Tenants failure to comply with its obligations under this section; such work shall be charged at hourly rates equal to then current journeymens wages for air conditioning mechanics.
(g) Furnish to the Premises, during Normal Business Hours, electric current sufficient for normal office use. Tenant shall not install any electrical equipment requiring special wiring or requiring voltage in excess of 110 volts unless approved in advance by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. Tenant agrees, should its electrical installation or electrical consumption be in excess of the aforesaid quantity or extend beyond Normal Business
Hours, to reimburse Landlord monthly for the measured consumption at the average cost per kilowatt hour charged to the Building during the period. Under such circumstances, Landlord may install a separate meter for electrical usage at Tenants cost. If a separate meter is not installed, such excess cost will be established by an estimate agreed upon by Landlord and Tenant, and if the parties fail to agree, as established by an independent licensed engineer. Said estimates shall be reviewed and adjusted quarterly. Tenant agrees not to use any apparatus or device in, upon or about the Premises which may in any way increase the amount of such services usually furnished or supplied to said Premises, and Tenant further agrees not to connect any apparatus or device with wires, conduits or pipes, or other means by which such services are supplied, for the purpose of using additional or unusual amounts of such services without the prior written consent of Landlord. Should Tenant use the same to excess, the refusal on the part of Tenant to pay upon demand of Landlord the amount established by Landlord for such excess charge shall constitute a breach of the obligation to pay Rent under this Lease and shall entitle Landlord to the rights therein granted for such breach. At all times Tenants use of electric current shall never exceed the capacity of the feeders to the Building or the risers or wiring installation and Tenant shall not install or use or permit the installation or use of any computer larger than personal computers or electronic data processing equipment in the Premises, without the prior written consent of Landlord. Any risers or wiring required to meet Tenants excess electrical requirements shall, upon Tenants written request, be installed by Landlord, at Tenants cost, if, in Landlords judgment, the same are necessary and shall not cause permanent damage to the Building or the Premises, cause or create a dangerous or hazardous condition, entail excessive or unreasonable alterations, repairs or expenses, or interfere with or disturb other tenants of the Project.
Landlord reserves the right to stop service of the elevator, plumbing, HVAC, electric or any of the other Buildings Systems, when necessary, by reason of accident or emergency or for repairs, alterations or improvements, until said repairs, alterations or improvements shall have been completed, and shall further have no responsibility or liability for failure to supply elevator facilities, plumbing, HVAC, electric or any other Building service, when prevented from so doing by strike or accident or by any cause beyond Landlords reasonable control, or by laws, rules, orders, ordinances, regulations or requirements of any federal, state, county or municipal authority or failure of electricity, gas, oil or other suitable fuel supply or inability by exercise of reasonable diligence to obtain electricity, gas, oil or other suitable fuel. It is expressly understood and agreed that any covenants on Landlords part to furnish any service pursuant to any of the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions or agreements of this Lease, or to perform any act or thing for the benefit of Tenant, shall not be deemed breached if Landlord is unable to furnish or perform the same by virtue of a strike or labor trouble or any other cause whatsoever beyond Landlords reasonable control.
Heating, ventilation, air conditioning or electric lighting service throughout the Premises and electrical facilities to provide sufficient power for copy machines, facsimile machines, standard size personal computers and other standard office machines of similar low electrical consumption, but not including electricity required for special lighting in excess of Building standards, and any other item of electrical equipment which consumes electricity in amounts in excess of standard office equipment, as reasonably determined by Landlord (Extra Electrical Service) provided by Landlord to Tenant (i) during hours other than the Building hours of operation specified in the rules and regulations for the Building, which shall provide for Building hours of operation of 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays observed by the federal government), or (ii) on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays, all said heating, ventilation, and air conditioning or extra electrical service to be furnished solely upon the prior written request of Tenant submitted during business hours to Landlord at least 24 hours in advance of the time such service is needed, or pursuant to such other procedures (which may permit less than 24 hours notice) as may be established from time to time by Landlord for the Building (such after-hour HVAC, shall be billed at Landlords commercially reasonable standard rates).
If any supplemental HVAC unit (a Unit) exclusively serves the Premises, then (a) Tenant shall pay the costs of all electricity consumed in the Units operation, together with the cost of installing a meter to measure such consumption; (b) Tenant, at its expense, shall (i) operate and maintain the Unit in compliance with all applicable laws and such reasonable rules and procedures as Landlord may impose; (ii) keep the Unit in as good working order and condition as existed upon installation (or, if later, when Tenant took possession of the Premises), subject to normal wear and tear; (iii) maintain in effect, with a contractor reasonably approved by Landlord, a contract for the maintenance and repair of the Unit, which contract shall require the contractor, at least once every three (3) months, to inspect the Unit and provide to Tenant a report of any defective condition, together with any recommendations for maintenance, repair or parts replacement; (iv) follow all reasonable recommendations of such contractor; and (v) promptly provide to Landlord a copy of such contract and each report issued thereunder; (c) the Unit shall become Landlords property upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease and without compensation to Tenant; provided, however, that upon Landlords request prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant, at its expense, shall remove the Unit and repair any resulting damage (and if Tenant fails to timely perform such work, Landlord may do so at Tenants expense); (d) if the Unit exists on the date of mutual execution and delivery of this Lease, Tenant accepts the Unit in its as is condition, without representation or warranty as to quality, condition, fitness for use or any other matter; (f) If the Unit connects to the Buildings condenser water loop (if any), then Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, Landlords standard one-time fee for such connection and Landlords standard monthly per-ton usage fee; and (g) if any portion of the Unit is located on the roof, then (i) Tenants access to the roof shall be subject to such reasonable rules and procedures as Landlord may impose; (ii) Tenant shall maintain the affected portion of the roof in a clean and orderly condition and shall not interfere with use of the roof by Landlord or any other tenants or licensees; and (iii) Landlord may relocate the Unit and/or temporarily interrupt its operation, without liability to Tenant, as reasonably necessary to maintain and repair the roof or otherwise operate the Building.
1. Acceptance of Premises. Except as set forth in this Exhibit, Tenant accepts the Premises in their AS IS condition on the date that this Lease is entered into.
2. Space Plan. On or before the execution of this Lease, Tenant has delivered to Landlord a space plan depicting improvements to be installed in the Premises, which plan is attached hereto as Schedule 1 to this Exhibit (the Space Plan).
3. Working Drawings.
(a) Preparation and Delivery. Following the date on which this Lease is fully executed by both Landlord and Tenant, Landlord shall cause to be prepared final working drawings of all improvements to be installed in the Premises and deliver the same to Tenant for its review and approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
(b) Approval Process. Tenant shall notify Landlord whether it approves of the submitted working drawings within four (4) Business Days after Landlords submission thereof. If Tenant disapproves of such working drawings, then Tenant shall notify Landlord thereof specifying in reasonable detail the reasons for such disapproval, in which case Landlord shall, within five (5) Business Days after such notice, revise such working drawings in accordance with Tenants objections and submit the revised working drawings to Tenant for its review and approval. Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing whether it approves of the resubmitted working drawings within three (3) Business Days after its receipt thereof. This process shall be repeated until the working drawings have been finally approved by Landlord and Tenant. If Tenant fails to notify Landlord that it disapproves of the initial working drawings within four (4) Business Days (or, in the case of resubmitted working drawings, within three (3) Business Days) after the submission thereof, then Tenant shall be deemed to have approved the working drawings in question. Any delay caused by Tenants unreasonable withholding of its consent or delay in giving its written approval as to such working drawings shall constitute a Tenant Delay Day (defined below). If the working drawings are not fully approved (or deemed approved) by both Landlord and Tenant by the fifteenth (15th) Business Day after the delivery of the initial draft thereof to Tenant, then each day after such time period that such working drawings are not fully approved (or deemed approved) by both Landlord and Tenant shall constitute a Tenant Delay Day.
(c) Landlords Approval; Performance of Work. After the Working Drawings (as defined below) have been achieved, Landlord shall, at its sole cost except as set forth herein, cause the Work to be performed in substantial accordance with the Working Drawings, in a good, workmanlike manner and in accordance with applicable Laws, using contractors and subcontractors selected by Landlord. Landlord shall be responsible for complying with the accessibility standards established by Daly City, California pursuant to applicable Law to the extent such compliance is required to Substantially Complete the Work. As used herein, Working Drawings shall mean the final working drawings prepared by Landlord and approved (or deemed approved) by Tenant, as amended from time to time by any approved changes thereto, and Work shall mean all improvements to be constructed by Landlord in accordance with and as indicated on the Working Drawings. Landlords approval of the Working Drawings shall not be a representation or warranty of Landlord that such drawings are adequate for any use or comply with any Law, but shall merely be the consent of Landlord thereto. Tenant shall, at Landlords request, sign the Working Drawings to evidence its review and approval thereof.
4. Change Orders. Tenant may initiate changes in the Work. Each such change must receive the prior written approval of Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; however, (a) if such requested change would adversely affect (in the reasonable discretion of Landlord) (1) the Buildings Structure or the Buildings Systems (including the Buildings restrooms or mechanical rooms), (2) the exterior appearance of the Building, or (3) the appearance of the Buildings Common Areas or elevator lobby areas, or (b) if any such requested change might delay the Commencement Date, Landlord may withhold its consent in its sole and absolute discretion.
5. Definitions. As used herein, a Tenant Delay Day shall mean each day of delay in the performance of the Work beyond the Estimated Delivery Date that occurs (a) because of Tenants failure to timely deliver or approve any required documentation such as the Space Plans or Working Drawings in accordance with Section 3(b) of this Exhibit C, (b) because of any change by Tenant to the Space Plans or Working Drawings, (c) because of any specification by Tenant of materials or installations in addition to or other than Landlords standard finish-out materials, or (d) because of other acts or omissions by Tenant or its agents that actually delays the Work, where such actions or omissions continue for more than one (1) day following written or oral notice from Landlord. As used herein Substantial Completion, Substantially Completed, and any derivations thereof mean the Work in the Premises has been performed in substantial accordance with the Working Drawings, as reasonably determined by Landlord (other than any details of construction, mechanical adjustment or other similar matter, the noncompletion of which does not materially interfere with Tenants use or occupancy of the Premises) and that Tenant has the legal right to occupy the Premises for the Permitted Use. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease, Tenant shall be liable for all costs incurred by Landlord in connection with any Tenant Delay Day and shall reimburse such costs to Landlord within five (5) Business Days following Landlords demand. Each day of delay beyond such five (5) Business Day period that Tenant fails to reimburse Landlord shall be deemed a Tenant Delay Day. Without limiting Landlords rights and remedies, Landlord shall have the right to cease construction without any liability or penalty until Tenant cures any delay by Tenant.
6. Walk-Through; Punchlist. When Landlord considers the Work in the Premises to be Substantially Completed, Landlord will notify Tenant and within three (3) Business Days thereafter, Landlords representative and Tenants representative shall conduct a walk-through of the Premises and identify any necessary touch-up work, repairs and minor completion items that are necessary for final completion of the Work. Neither Landlords representative nor Tenants representative shall unreasonably withhold his or her agreement on punchlist items. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to cause the contractor performing the Work to complete all punchlist items within thirty (30) days after agreement thereon; however, Landlord shall not be obligated to engage overtime labor in order to complete such items.
7. Costs. Landlord shall bear the entire cost of performing the Work depicted on the Space Plan initially submitted to and approved by Landlord, subject to Landlords Contribution (as defined below). Tenant shall bear any Tenants Costs (as defined below) and shall pay Landlord an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of the estimated Tenants Costs upon Landlords demand; Tenant shall pay to Landlord the remaining portion of Tenants Costs upon Substantial Completion of the Work. In consideration for Landlords management and supervision for services performed in connection with the Work, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a construction management fee equal to three percent (3%) of Tenants Costs specified in this Section 7.
8. Construction Cost Allocation.
(a) Landlords Contribution. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease or this Work Letter, Landlords total contribution toward the cost of the Tenant Improvements shall not exceed the cost of performing the improvements set forth in the Space Plan using Building standard materials, methods, quantities and finishes (Landlords Contribution). In no event shall Landlord be liable for any cost in excess of Landlords Contribution, it being agreed by the parties that such excess costs shall be Tenants responsibility.
(b) Tenants Costs. Tenant shall be responsible for all costs in excess of Landlords Contribution, caused by any reason, including, without limitation, (i) any change, supplements, substitutions or alternates to the scope of the Tenant Improvements requested by Tenant or required as a result of Tenants revisions thereto or suggested by Landlords contractor or architect, (ii) any Tenant Delay Days, or (iii) any non-Building Standard materials, methods, quantities or finishes (Tenants Costs). As used herein, Building Standard shall mean and refer to the materials, methods, quantities and finishes typically used by Landlord in connection with the improvement of tenant spaces in the Building, as determined by Landlord from time to time.
(c) Payment of Tenants Costs. Tenant shall pay all such Tenants Costs to Landlord within ten (10) Business Days following Landlords written request and submittal of documentation evidencing the cost thereof. Landlord shall not be required to commence or continue, as the case may be, construction of the Tenant Improvements until receipt of Tenants payment of Tenants Costs, and each day of delay resulting therefrom shall be deemed a Tenant Delay Day and, at the election of Landlord, shall be deemed an Event of Default under the Lease. At the option of Landlord, amounts payable by Tenant pursuant to this Section shall be paid directly to the contractor or such other party as Landlord may designate in writing. If Tenant fails to pay Tenants Costs within such five (5) Business Day period, Tenant shall be deemed to have withdrawn its request for all items which resulted in Tenants Costs, and Landlord may proceed with construction of the Tenant Improvements using materials and methods and quantities Landlord deems reasonable.
9. Construction Management. Landlord or its Affiliate or agent shall supervise the Work, make disbursements required to be made to the contractor, and act as a liaison between the contractor and Tenant and coordinate the relationship between the Work, the Building and the Buildings Systems. In consideration for Landlords construction supervision services, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a construction supervision fee equal to three percent (3%) of Tenants Costs specified in Section 7.
10. Construction Representatives. Landlords and Tenants representatives for coordination of construction and approval of change orders will be as follows, provided that either party may change its representative upon written notice to the other:

11. Miscellaneous. To the extent not inconsistent with this Exhibit, Sections 8(a) and 21 of this Lease shall govern the performance of the Work and Landlords and Tenants respective rights and obligations regarding the improvements installed pursuant thereto.
CONTRACTOR RULES AND REGULATIONS
Any and all Alterations, improvements or additions performed by Tenant will be performed in accordance with this Exhibit C-1, and any modifications thereto by Landlord, notwithstanding any more permissive local building codes or ordinances. For the avoidance of doubt, Landlord is managing the Work and, therefore, Tenant shall have no responsibility whatsoever for compliance with this Exhibit C-1 with respect to the Work.
The general contractor (Contractor) and all subcontractors must be approved to conduct their trades in the jurisdiction in which the Building is located by any and all governmental entities with such authority. Tenant or Contractor must provide Landlord with names, addresses and phone numbers for all subcontractors prior to commencement of work by the subcontractor.

At least 48 hours notice must be provided to the Property Manager and the on-site engineer advising that an inspection has been requested.
Contractor shall take all necessary precautions to protect all areas outside of the work area and shall repair or replace damaged property without cost to Landlord.
EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL
Contractor agrees to provide a management plan prior to any exterior ground work being performed to prevent loss of soil during construction by stormwater runoff and/or wind erosion, including protecting topsoil by stockpiling for reuse, preventing sedimentation of storm sewer or receiving streams, and preventing pollution of the air with dust and particulate matter. Contractor shall log building operations and maintenance activity to ensure that the plan has been followed.
Contractor agrees to incorporate Sustainability Standards into the preparation of the Plans and Specifications, including, without limitation, those Energy and Sustainability Construction Guidelines and Requirements attached hereto as Exhibit C-2, when such compliance will not cause a material increase in Construction Costs.
WATER AND ELECTRICITY
Sources of water and electricity will be furnished to Contractor without cost, in reasonable quantities for use in lighting, power tools, drinking water, water for testing, etc. Reasonable quantities will be determined on a case-by-case basis, but are generally intended to mean quantities comparable to the water and electrical demand Tenant would use upon taking occupancy. Contractor shall make all connections, furnish any necessary extensions, and remove same upon completion of work.
DEMOLITION AND DUSTY WORK
Demolition of an area in excess of 100 square feet must be performed before 7:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. Contractor shall notify the Building engineers office at least one full Business Day prior to commencement of extremely dusty work (sheet rock cutting, sanding, extensive sweeping, etc.) so arrangements can be made for additional filtering capacity on the affected HVAC equipment. Failure to make such notification will result in Contractor incurring the costs to return the equipment to its proper condition. All lights must be covered during high dust construction due to a plenum return air system.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Contractor agrees to develop and implement an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Management Plan for the construction and occupancy phases of the area being built out as follows:
During construction, meet or exceed the recommended Design Approaches of the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning National Contractors Association (SMACNA) IAQ Guideline for Occupied Buildings Under Construction, 1995, Chapter 3.
Protect stored on-site or installed absorptive materials from moisture damage.
If air handlers must be used during construction, use filtration media with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) of 8 at each return air grill, as determined by ASHRAE 52.2-1999.
Replace all filtration media immediately prior to occupancy.
Make every reasonable effort to minimize the off-gassing of volatile organic compounds used in construction materials within the Building. Efforts may include the use of no- and low-VOC products and materials, allowing products to off-gas before being brought into the Building, and flushing out the space with outside air or air purifiers.
WATER USE EFFICIENCY
Contractor agrees to comply with the following:
Maintain maximum fixture water efficiency within the Building to reduce the burden on potable water supply and wastewater systems.
Keep fire systems, domestic water systems, and landscape irrigation systems as separate systems to be maintained and metered separately. Modifications to the water systems must maintain the integrity of these three systems.
Submeter process water used directly by tenant and for the sole benefit of tenant.
Irrigation lines are not to be connected to domestic supply lines.
REMOVAL OF WASTE MATERIALS
Any and all existing building materials removed and not reused in the construction shall be disposed of by Contractor as waste or unwanted materials, unless otherwise directed by the Property Manager. Contractor shall comply with all Laws and Landlords waste and recycling practices. Contractor shall at all times keep areas outside the work area free from waste material, rubbish and debris and shall remove waste materials from the Building on a daily basis.
Upon construction completion, Contractor shall remove all debris and surplus material and thoroughly clean the work area and any common areas impacted by the work.
Contractor agrees to comply with Landlords cleaning and maintenance practices.
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS (MSDS)
Contractor agrees to provide the Property Manager with at least 72 hours advance notice of all chemicals to be used on site through written notice and delivery of MSDS sheets.
Standard construction hours are 6:30 a.m. 5:00 p.m. The Building engineer must be notified at least two full Business Days in advance of any work that may disrupt normal business operations, e.g., drilling or cutting of the concrete floor slab which must take place outside of Normal Business Hours. The Property Manager reserves the right to determine what additional construction work is considered inappropriate for normal business hours. Work performed after standard construction hours requires an on-site engineer, who shall be billed at the then overtime rate, payable by Contractor.
Contractor and subcontractors are to use care and consideration for others in the Building when using any public areas. No abusive language or actions on the part of the workers will be tolerated. It will be the responsibility of Contractor to enforce this regulation on a day-to-day basis. Contractor and subcontractors shall remain in the designated construction area so as not to unnecessarily interrupt other tenants. No sleeveless shirts are allowed. Long pants and proper work shoes are required. All workers must wear company identification.
Contractor is to perform a thorough inspection of all common areas to which it requires access prior to construction to document existing Building conditions. Upon completion of work, if necessary, Contractor shall return these areas to the same condition in which they were originally viewed. Any damage caused by Contractor shall be corrected at its sole cost.
Contractor or subcontractor signage may not be displayed in areas of the Building visible from the exterior of the Premises.
POSTING OF RULES AND REGULATIONS
A copy of these rules and regulations must be posted on the job site in a manner allowing easy access by all workers. It is Contractors responsibility to instruct all workers, including subcontractors, to familiarize themselves with these rules and regulations.
Contractor will provide and maintain at its own expense the following minimum insurance:

TENANT: SPRUCE BIOSCIENCES, INC.,
a Delaware corporation
A. Subject to Paragraph F below, Tenant may renew this Lease for one (1) additional period of five (5) years (the Renewal Term), by delivering written notice (the Renewal Notice) of the exercise thereof to Landlord not earlier than twelve (12) months nor later than nine (9) months before the expiration of the initial Term. The Base Rent payable for each month during the Renewal Term shall be the Fair Market Rent (as defined below) as of the commencement date of the Renewal Term; provided, however, that in no event shall the monthly Base Rent for the Renewal Term be less than the monthly Base Rent payable hereunder for the last full month of the initial Term. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of Tenants Renewal Notice, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant written notice of Landlords Fair Market Rent proposal for the Renewal Term (Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal) and shall advise Tenant of the required adjustment to Base Rent, if any, and the other terms and conditions offered. Within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing whether Tenant accepts or rejects Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal. If Tenant rejects Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal, then Tenants written notice shall include Tenants determination of the Fair Market Rent. If Tenant does not deliver Tenants written determination of Fair Market Rent to Landlord within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal, Tenant will be deemed to have accepted Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal. If Tenant and Landlord disagree on the Fair Market Rent as evidenced by Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal, then Landlord and Tenant shall attempt in good faith to agree upon the Fair Market Rent. If by that date which is six (6) months prior to the commencement of the Renewal Term (the Trigger Date), Landlord and Tenant have not agreed in writing as to the Fair Market Rent, the parties shall determine the Fair Market Rent in accordance with the procedure set forth in Paragraph C below. In all events, Tenants exercise of its renewal option right hereunder shall be binding upon Tenant and not subject to rescission.
B. For purposes of this Exhibit, the term Fair Market Rent shall mean the rental rate for comparable space to be used for office purposes under primary lease (and not sublease) to new tenants, taking into consideration: (i) such amenities as existing improvements, location of the Premises in the Building and the like, situated in comparable office buildings in Northern San Mateo County, California, in comparable physical and economic condition, (ii) the credit standing of Tenant, and (iii) the then prevailing ordinary rental market practices with respect to tenant concessions; provided, however, that the determination of Fair Market Rent shall not take into account tenant improvement allowances, free rent or other allowances or concessions typically offered to attract new tenants to the Building or comparable office buildings. Fair Market Rent shall include the periodic rental increases, if any, that would be included for space leased for the period the Premises will be covered by the Lease. As used herein, then prevailing shall mean the commencement date of the Renewal Term.
C. If Landlord and Tenant are unable to reach agreement on the Fair Market Rent by the Trigger Date, then within seven (7) days of the Trigger Date, Landlord and Tenant shall each simultaneously submit to the other in a sealed envelope its good faith estimate of the Fair Market Rent for the Renewal Term. If either Landlord or Tenant fails to propose a Fair Market Rent, then the Fair Market Rent for the Renewal Term proposed by the other party shall prevail. If the higher of such estimates is not more than one hundred five percent (105%) of the lower, then the Fair Market Rent shall be the average of the two. Otherwise, the dispute shall be resolved by arbitration in accordance with the remainder of this Paragraph C. Within seven (7) days after the exchange of estimates, the parties shall select as an arbitrator either (i) a licensed real estate
broker with at least ten (10) years of experience leasing premises in office buildings in Northern San Mateo County or (ii) an independent MAI appraiser with at least five (5) years of experience in appraising office buildings in Northern San Mateo County (a Qualified Arbitrator). If the parties cannot agree on a Qualified Arbitrator, then within a second period of seven (7) days, each shall select a Qualified Arbitrator and within ten (10) days thereafter the two appointed Qualified Arbitrators shall select a third Qualified Arbitrator and the third Qualified Arbitrator shall be the sole arbitrator. If the two Qualified Arbitrators are unable to agree upon the third Qualified Arbitrator within the referenced ten (10)-day period, the third Qualified Arbitrator shall be selected by the parties themselves, if they can agree thereon, within a further period of ten (10) days. If the parties do not so agree, then either party, on behalf of both, may request that the appointment of such third Qualified Arbitrator be made in accordance with the selection procedures of the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or its successor for arbitration of commercial disputes. If one party shall fail to select a Qualified Arbitrator within the second seven (7)-day period, then the Qualified Arbitrator chosen by the other party shall be the sole arbitrator (the single Qualified Arbitrator initially selected by both parties, the third Qualified Arbitrator appointed by the two (2) Qualified Arbitrators selected by the parties, or the one Qualified Arbitrator selected via the AAA, as applicable, shall hereafter be referred to as the Sole Arbitrator). Within thirty (30) days after submission of the matter to the Sole Arbitrator, the Sole Arbitrator shall determine the Fair Market Rent by choosing whichever of the estimates submitted by Landlord and Tenant the Sole Arbitrator judges to be more accurate. The Sole Arbitrator shall notify Landlord and Tenant of his or her decision, which shall be final and binding. If the Sole Arbitrator believes that expert advice would materially assist him or her, the Sole Arbitrator may retain one or more qualified persons to provide expert advice. The parties shall reasonably cooperate with any request from the Sole Arbitrator for information regarding the parties respective estimates of Fair Market Rent for the Renewal Term. The fees of the Sole Arbitrator and the expenses of the arbitration proceeding, including (i) the costs of the AAA proceeding, if any, and (ii) the fees of any expert witnesses retained by the Sole Arbitrator, shall be shared equally by Landlord and Tenant. The fees of each partys respective Qualified Arbitrator shall be borne by that party. Further, each party shall pay the fees of its respective counsel and the fees of any witness called by that party.
D. On or before the commencement date of the Renewal Term, Landlord and Tenant shall execute an amendment to this Lease prepared by Landlord extending the Term on the same terms provided in this Lease, except as follows:
(i) Base Rent shall be adjusted to the Fair Market Rent (which shall be the rental rate set forth in Landlords Fair Market Rent Proposal or the Fair Market Rent determined by mutual agreement or by arbitration, as the case may be); provided, however, that in no event shall the monthly Base Rent for the Renewal Term be less than the monthly Base Rent payable hereunder for the last full month of the initial Term;
(ii) Tenant shall have no further renewal option unless expressly granted by Landlord in writing; and
(iii) Except as otherwise agreed upon by Landlord in writing, Landlord shall lease to Tenant the Premises in their then-current condition, and Landlord shall not provide to Tenant any allowances (e.g., a construction allowance) or other tenant inducements.
E.
