“If (i) default shall at any time be made (x) by Tenant in the payment of rent when due to Landlord as herein provided, or (y) by HQ Lease Lessee in the payment of rent when due to HQ Lease Lessor as provided in the HQ Lease (provided, however, that the foregoing clause (y) shall only constitute a default in the event that, at the time of such default, the HQ Lease Lessor is Aliaron Investments, Ltd. or an affiliate thereof), and if said default described in the immediately preceding clauses (x) or (y) shall continue for fifteen (15) days after written notice thereof shall have been given to Tenant by Landlord or to HQ Lease Lessee by HQ Lease Lessor, as applicable, or (ii) if default shall be made in any of the other covenants or conditions to be kept, observed and performed by Tenant, and such default shall continue for thirty (30) days after notice thereof in writing to Tenant by Landlord without correction thereof then having been commenced and thereafter diligently prosecuted, Landlord may declare the term of this Lease ended and terminated by giving Tenant written notice of such intention, and if possession of the Leased Premises is not surrendered, Landlord may reenter said premises.”
h.Right of First Refusal. The Original Lease shall be amended to add the following as a new Paragraph 30:
“30. Right of First Refusal.
A.During the Term, before Landlord may convey, assign, or otherwise transfer its ownership interest in all or any portion of the Leased Premises to a third party, Tenant shall have a right of first refusal to purchase the Leased Premises on the material terms and conditions that Landlord is willing to sell the Leased Premises to a third party following the procedures set forth in this Paragraph 30.
B.Prior to entering into a binding agreement to sell the Leased Premises to a third party, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant written notice (the “Right of First Refusal Offer Notice”) of the material terms and conditions that Landlord has negotiated in good faith, and is willing to accept, from a third party, including the purchase price at which Landlord is willing to sell the Leased Premises (such price, the “Right of First Refusal Purchase Price”). Upon Tenant’s receipt of a Right of First Refusal Offer Notice, Tenant shall have fifteen (15) calendar days to deliver written notice (a “Right of First Refusal Acceptance Notice”) to Landlord that it will purchase the Leased Premises for the Right
of First Refusal Purchase Price and on the terms and conditions set forth in the Right of First Refusal Offer Notice.
C.If Tenant timely delivers a Right of First Refusal Acceptance Notice electing to purchase the Leased Premises on the terms and conditions set forth in the Right of First Refusal Offer Notice, then Landlord shall be bound to convey, assign, or otherwise transfer the Leased Premises to Tenant promptly thereafter at the Right of First Refusal Purchase Price and on the terms and conditions set forth in the Right of First Refusal Offer Notice, and the parties shall proceed to consummate the sale of the Leased Premises.
D.If Tenant (i) fails to timely deliver a Right of First Refusal Acceptance Notice, or (ii) elects not to purchase the Leased Premises on the terms and conditions set forth in the Right of First Refusal Offer Notice, then Landlord shall be free, for a period of one hundred fifty (150) calendar days (such 150-calendar day period, “Landlord’s Sale Period”), to convey, assign, or otherwise transfer the Leased Premises to a third party at a price not less than the Right of First Refusal Purchase Price and not on more favorable material terms and conditions than those stated in the Right of First Refusal Offer Notice. Any conveyance, assignment, or transfer of the Leased Premises by Landlord to a third party shall be fully subject to the terms of this Lease and Landlord agrees to take all necessary steps to ensure the terms of this Lease shall be binding upon any new third party owner of the Leased Premises.
E.If Landlord shall not have so conveyed, assigned, or transferred the Leased Premises to a third party within Landlord’s Sale Period, then Landlord may not sell the Leased Premises (or any portion thereof) to a third party without providing a new Right of First Refusal Offer Notice to Tenant and complying with the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 30.
F.Tenant’s rights under this Paragraph 30 shall be at all times subordinate in all respects to all rights and remedies of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the “Bank”) under the Bank’s deed of trust encumbering the Leased Premises, such that Tenant’s rights under this Paragraph 30 shall not survive any foreclosure on the Premises by the Bank pursuant to its deed of trust, and shall not apply to any sale of the Leased Premises by a receiver appointed by the Bank pursuant to its deed of trust.”
a.Full Force and Effect. Except as expressly amended hereby, all of the representations, warranties, terms, covenants, conditions and other provisions of the Original Lease shall remain unchanged and shall continue to be, and shall
remain, in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms. The amendments set forth herein shall be limited precisely as provided for herein to the provisions expressly amended herein and shall not be deemed to be an amendment to, waiver of, consent to or modification of any other term or provision of the Original Lease.
b.Conflict. In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Second Amendment and the Original Lease, the terms of this Second Amendment shall control and govern and the provisions of the Original Lease are to be construed in light of the intent of this Second Amendment.
c.Entire Agreement. This Second Amendment sets forth the entire agreement between the Parties regarding the matters set forth herein, superseding all prior agreements and understandings, written and oral, and may not be changed, modified or cancelled orally.
d.Governing Law. This Second Amendment shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to any conflicts of law provisions thereof.
e.Further Action. Each Party to this Second Amendment shall execute all instruments and documents and take such further action as may be reasonably required to effectuate the purpose of this Second Amendment.
f.Modification; Amendment. This Second Amendment may be modified or amended only by a writing executed by the Parties hereto.
g.Counterparts. This Second Amendment may be executed in multiple counterparts (including electronic [PDF] or facsimile counterparts), each of which shall be deemed an original, and all such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument.
h.Severability. The invalidity of any portion of this Second Amendment shall not have any effect on the balance thereof.
i.No Broker. Each of Tenant and Landlord represents to the other that it has not dealt with any brokers in connection with this Second Amendment and that no broker negotiated this Second Amendment or is entitled to any commission in connection herewith. Each Party agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the other harmless from and against all claims, demands, actions, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from any claim for a fee or commission made by any broker claiming to have acted by or on behalf of the indemnifying Party in connection with this Second Amendment. The foregoing indemnity shall survive the expiration or termination of the Lease.
