Additionally, the following terms shall have the following meanings when used in this Lease: “Affiliate” means any person or entity which, directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with the party in question (as used herein, the term “control” shall mean the possession, direct or indirect, of not less than a majority of the voting rights attributable to the shares of a party and a majority of the outstanding capital stock of a party, or the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of a party, whether through the ownership of voting shares, by contract or otherwise); “Building’s Structure” means the Building’s exterior walls, roof, elevator shafts (if any), footings, foundations, structural portions of load-bearing walls, structural floors and subfloors, and structural columns and beams; “Building’s Systems” means the Premises’ and Building’s HVAC, life-safety, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems; “Business Day(s)” means Monday through Friday of each week, exclusive of Holidays; “Complex” shall refer to the Shores Business Center and it’s Owners Association; “Holidays” means New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and any other nationally or regionally recognized holiday; “including” means including, without limitation; “Land” is the land on which the Building is located, as described on Exhibit B attached hereto; “Laws” means all federal, state, and local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations, all court orders, governmental directives, and governmental orders and all interpretations of the foregoing, and all restrictive covenants affecting the Project, and “Law” shall mean any of the foregoing; “Project” shall collectively refer to the Building, the Land and the driveways, parking facilities, and similar improvements and easements associated with the foregoing or the operation thereof; “Rent” shall collectively refer to Base Rent, Additional Rent, Taxes, and Insurance (each as defined in Exhibit C hereto), and all other sums that Tenant may owe to Landlord or otherwise be required to pay under the Lease; “Tenant’s Off-Premises Equipment” means any of Tenant’s equipment or other property that may be located on or about the Project (other than inside the Premises); and “Tenant Party” means any of the following persons: Tenant; any assignees claiming by, through, or under Tenant; any subtenants claiming by, through, or under Tenant; and any of their respective agents, contractors and employees.
2. Lease Grant. Subject to the terms of this Lease, Landlord leases to Tenant, and Tenant leases from Landlord, the Premises (as defined in the Basic Lease Information). The Premises are outlined on the plan attached to the Lease as Exhibit A.
3. Tender of Possession; Square Footage of Premises.
(a) Tender of Possession. Landlord shall deliver and Tenant shall accept possession of the Premises in its present AS-IS condition (provided that Landlord must complete all Additional Landlord Improvements listed in Section 7 of Exhibit D prior to December 1, 2019), broom clean and free of work materials, debris and any prior occupant’s furniture or personal property (“Delivery Condition” and such delivery, “Delivery” and the date of actual Delivery, the “Delivery Date”) within three (3) business days following request by Tenant, provided, however, that if Tenant has not so requested Delivery as of September 1, 2019 (the “Outside Delivery Date”), the Delivery Date will be deemed to occur on the Outside Delivery Date. The parties anticipate that Delivery Date will be the Anticipated Delivery Date set forth in the Basic Lease Information (but such date is an estimate only and will not bind Landlord or Tenant) the execution of the Lease. Tenant shall be deemed to have accepted the Premises in their AS-IS condition as of the Delivery Date. The “Lease Commencement Date” shall be established in accordance with the Basic Lease Information. Within ten (10) Business Days following the Commencement Date, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord a letter substantially in the form of Exhibit F hereto confirming: (1) the Commencement Date (as defined in the Basic Lease Information) and the expiration date of the initial Term (as defined in the Basic Lease Information); (2) that Tenant has accepted the Premises in their Delivery Condition; and (3) that Landlord has performed all of its obligations with respect to the Premises; however, the failure of the parties to execute such letter shall not defer the Commencement Date or otherwise invalidate this Lease. Tenant’s failure to execute such document within ten (10) days of receipt thereof from Landlord shall be deemed Tenant’s agreement to the contents of such document. Any use of the Premises by Tenant prior to the Commencement Date shall be subject to all of the provisions of this Lease excepting only those requiring the payment of Rent. As used herein, “Landlord Delay” shall mean an actual delay in the performance of the Tenant Improvements resulting from the acts or omissions of Landlord (or Landlord’s contractors, representatives, vendors, or employees) including, but not limited to (i) failure of Landlord to timely approve or disapprove any construction documents as required pursuant to this Lease; (ii) unreasonable and material interference by Landlord, its employees, agents, vendors, representatives or contractors with the completion of the Tenant Improvements (including the impairment of Tenant’s contractors’ or vendors’ or employees’ access to the Premises, failure to provide reasonable access to the Building’s loading docks or other facilities necessary for the construction of the Tenant Improvements and/or the movement of materials and personnel to the Premises for such purpose), whether such failure is due to the competing needs of other tenants, or Landlord, or otherwise; provided that it shall not be deemed unreasonable and material interference to the extent the allocation of such resources is equitable amongst the tenants needing to use such resources; and (iii) delays due to the acts or failures to act of Landlord, its employees, agents, vendors, representatives or contractors with respect to payment of the Tenant Improvement Allowance. Tenant will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of any Landlord Delay through the re-sequencing or re-scheduling of work, if feasible, but this sentence will not be deemed to require Tenant to incur overtime or after-hours costs unless Landlord agrees in writing to bear such costs. If Tenant contends that a Landlord Delay has occurred, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing (the “Delay Notice”) of the event which constitutes Landlord Delay; such notice may, for the purposes of this Section 3(a) be via
electronic mail to Landlord’s construction representative described in Exhibit D attached hereto. If the actions or inactions or circumstances described in the Delay Notice are not cured by Landlord within two (2) business day after Landlord’s receipt of the Delay Notice, then a Landlord Delay, as applicable, shall be deemed to have occurred commencing as of the expiration of the two (2) business day period.
(b) Square Footage of Premises. The rentable square footage of the Premises set forth in this Lease shall be deemed by Tenant to be the rentable square footage of the Premises for all purposes. In that regard, Tenant has been given an opportunity to measure the rentable square footage of the Premises prior to execution of this Lease and Tenant hereby waives any rights it may have following execution of this Lease to measure the Premises or claim that the rentable square footage of the Premises is other than as set forth in this Lease. In no event will the Premises be subject to re-measurement by either party during the Term.
4. Rent; Abatement of Rent.
(a) Rent. Tenant shall timely pay to Landlord Rent, including the amounts set forth in Exhibit C hereto, without notice, demand, deduction or set-off (except as otherwise expressly provided herein), by good and sufficient check drawn on a national banking association at Landlord’s address provided for in this Lease or electronically via automatic debit or wire transfer to such account as Landlord designates in writing to Tenant, or as otherwise reasonably specified by Landlord. The obligations of Tenant to pay Base Rent (as defined in the Basic Lease Information) and other sums to Landlord and the obligations of Landlord under this Lease are independent obligations. Base Rent shall be payable monthly in advance. The first (1st) monthly installment of Base Rent shall be payable contemporaneously with the execution of this Lease; thereafter, Base Rent shall be payable on the first (1st) day of each month beginning on the first (1st) day of the second (2nd) Lease Month. The monthly Base Rent for any partial calendar month at the beginning of the Term shall equal the product of 1/365 of the annual Base Rent in effect during the partial month and the number of days in the partial month, and shall be due on the Commencement Date. Payments of Base Rent for any fractional calendar month at the end of the Term shall be similarly prorated. Tenant shall pay Additional Rent, Taxes and Insurance (each as defined in Exhibit C) at the same time and in the same manner as Base Rent.
(b) Abatement of Rent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein and provided that no Monetary Event of Default (as defined in Section 17 below) on the part of Tenant exists, Landlord hereby agrees to abate Tenant’s obligation to pay Tenant’s monthly Base Rent (the “Abated Rent”) for the period commencing with the sixth (6th) Lease Month and continuing through and including twelfth (12th) Lease Month of the initial Term (the “Abatement Period”), which total amount of Abated Rent is $3,125,220 (i.e., 7 months x $446,460 per month = $3,125,220). During the Abatement Period, Tenant shall remain responsible for the payment of all of its other monetary obligations under this Lease. If at any time during the Term a Monetary Event of Default by Tenant occurs and Landlord terminates this Lease as a consequence of such Monetary Event of Default, all Abated Rent that is unamortized as of the occurrence of the Event of Default (such amortization to be computed over the number of full
calendar months in the Term of the Lease from and after the Abatement Period through the expiration of the Term of the Lease may be included by Landlord in Landlord’s claim for termination damages, which shall not limit or affect any of Landlord’s other remedies upon the occurrence of a Monetary Event of Default by Tenant, whether pursuant to this Lease or at law or in equity.
5. Delinquent Payment; Handling Charges. All past due payments required of Tenant hereunder shall bear interest from the date due until paid at the lesser of the “prime” rate as published in the Wall Street Journal plus three percent (3%) 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 delinquent payment to reimburse Landlord for its cost and inconvenience incurred as a consequence of Tenant’s delinquency. 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 foregoing late charge shall be waived for the first such late payment of Rent or other charges during each twelve (12) month period for the Term of this Lease, provided, that, such payment is made within ten (10) days of notice of non-payment.
6. Letter of Credit. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, no later than ten (10) Business Days following the Effective Date, a Letter of Credit (as hereinafter defined) in the amount specified in the Basic Lease Information, as additional security for the faithful performance and observance by Tenant of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease. The Letter of Credit shall be in the form of a clean, irrevocable, non-documentary and unconditional letter of credit (the “Letter of Credit”) issued by and drawable upon any commercial bank, trust company, national banking association or savings and loan association with offices for banking purposes in San Francisco, California (or which accepts draw requests via overnight courier and/or facsimile) and otherwise satisfactory to Landlord (the “Issuing Bank”), which has outstanding unsecured, uninsured and unguaranteed indebtedness, or shall have issued a letter of credit or other credit facility that constitutes the primary security for any outstanding indebtedness (which is otherwise uninsured and unguaranteed), that is then rated, without regard to qualification of such rating by symbols such as “+” or “-” or numerical notation, “Aa” or better by Moody’s Investors Service and “AA” or better by Standard & Poor’s Rating Service, and has combined capital, surplus and undivided profits of not less than $2,000,000,000; Landlord hereby approves Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”) as the initial Issuing Bank and, in connection therewith, approves the form of SVB Letter of Credit attached hereto as Exhibit J. The Letter of Credit shall (a) name Landlord as beneficiary, (b) have a term of not less than one (1) year, (c) permit multiple drawings, (d) be fully transferable by Landlord without the payment of any fees or charges by Landlord, and (e) otherwise be in form and content reasonably satisfactory to Landlord. The Letter of Credit shall provide that it shall be deemed automatically renewed, without amendment, for consecutive periods of one year each thereafter during the Term (and in no event shall the Letter of Credit expire prior to the sixtieth (60th) day following the Expiration Date) unless the Issuing Bank sends duplicate notices (the “Non-
Renewal Notices”) to Landlord by certified mail, return receipt requested or via overnight courier (one of which shall be addressed “Attention, Chief Legal Officer” and the other of which shall be addressed “Attention, Chief Financial Officer”), not less than sixty (60) days next preceding the then expiration date of the Letter of Credit stating that the Issuing Bank has elected not to renew the Letter of Credit. The Issuing Bank shall agree with all drawers, endorsers and bona fide holders that drafts drawn under and in compliance with the terms of the Letter of Credit will be duly honored upon presentation to the Issuing Bank at an office location in San Francisco, California. The Letter of Credit shall be subject in all respects to the International Standby Practices 1998, International Chamber of Commerce Publication No. 590.
Effective on each of the fourth (4th) anniversary and the seventh (7th) anniversary of the Commencement Date (“Reduction Date”) and as long as the Reduction Conditions (as hereinafter defined) have been satisfied by Tenant, the amount of the Letter of Credit shall be reduced by $1,000,000.00. For purposes of this Section 6, the “Reduction Conditions” shall mean (a) no Monetary Event of Default has occurred under this Lease from the Commencement Date through and including the Reduction Date, (b) for the six (6) month period ending on the Reduction Date, Tenant is occupying at least fifty percent (50%) of the Premises, (c) Tenant’s Non-GAAP Net Loss as of the Reduction Date is less than it was on the Commencement Date, and (d) Tenant demonstrates to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction (i.e., Landlord’s approval of same shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) that Tenant has sufficient financial strength to meet its rental obligations under this Lease.
(a) Application of Security. If (a) an event of default by Tenant occurs in the payment or performance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Lease, including the payment of Rent, or (b) Landlord receives a Non-Renewal Notice and Tenant fails to produce a replacement Letter of Credit on or before the date that is thirty (30) days prior to the scheduled date of expiration of the then-current Letter of Credit, Landlord shall have the right by sight draft to draw, at its election, all or a portion of the proceeds of the Letter of Credit and thereafter hold, use, apply, or retain the whole or any part of such proceeds, as the case may be, (x) to the extent required for the payment of any Rent or any other sum as to which Tenant is in default including (i) any sum which Landlord may expend or may be required to expend by reason of Tenant’s Event of Default, and/or (ii) any damages to which Landlord is entitled pursuant to this Lease, whether such damages accrue before or after summary proceedings or other reentry by Landlord, and/or (y) as a cash security deposit, unless and until, in the case of clause (c) above, Tenant delivers to Landlord a substitute Letter of Credit which meets the requirements of this Section 6. If Landlord applies or retains any part of the proceeds of the Letter of Credit, or cash security, Tenant, upon demand, shall deposit with Landlord the amount so applied or retained (or shall provide Landlord with a replacement Letter of Credit in the applicable amount, or an amendment to the then-current Letter of Credit reinstating the face amount of the Letter of Credit to the then-applicable required amount) so that Landlord shall have the full amount thereof on hand at all times during the Term. If no Event of Default on the part of Tenant then exists, the Letter of Credit or cash security, as the case may be, shall be returned to Tenant not later than sixty (60) days after the Expiration Date of the Lease and after delivery
of possession of the Premises to Landlord in the manner required by this Lease. Without limiting the foregoing rights of Landlord, Tenant further agrees that Landlord may hold and draw upon the Letter of Credit and any proceeds thereof as security for future Rent damages or other future sums or costs which Tenant is obligated to pay and in that connection Tenant waives all rights, if any, under California Civil Code Section 1950.7 to the contrary.
(b) Transfer. Upon a sale or other transfer of the Building, or any financing of Landlord’s interest therein, Landlord shall have the right to transfer the Letter of Credit or the cash security to its transferee or lender. With respect to the Letter of Credit, within five (5) days after notice of such transfer or financing, Tenant, at its sole cost, shall, at Landlord’s request, have the Letter of Credit reissued in the name of the new landlord or the lender (and, in connection therewith, Landlord agrees to execute and deliver such correspondence as the Issuing Bank may require in order to facilitate such reissuance). Upon such transfer, Tenant shall look solely to the new landlord or lender for the return of the Letter of Credit or such cash security and the provisions hereof shall apply to every transfer or assignment made of the Letter of Credit or such cash security to a new landlord. Tenant shall not assign or encumber or attempt to assign or encumber the Letter of Credit or such cash security and neither Landlord nor its successors or assigns shall be bound by any such action or attempted assignment, or encumbrance.
7. Services; Utilities; Common Areas.
(a) Services. Other than Landlord’s maintenance obligations expressly set forth in this Lease, Landlord shall not be obligated to provide any services to Tenant.
(b) Utility Use. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all Utilities pursuant to Exhibit C, or at Tenant’s election Tenant shall obtain all water, electricity, sewerage, gas, telephone and other utilities for the Premises directly from the public utility company furnishing same. Any meters required in connection therewith shall be installed at Tenant’s sole cost. Tenant shall pay all utility deposits and fees, and all monthly service charges for water, electricity, sewage, gas, telephone and any other utility services furnished to the Premises during the Term of this Lease. Tenant shall not install any equipment which exceeds or overloads the capacity of the utility facilities serving the Premises. If Tenant uses heat or air conditioning systems in excess of seventy five (75) hours per calendar week in any calendar year for a number of weeks which in the aggregate exceed over twenty-five percent (25%) of the weeks in such calendar year, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, upon billing, the cost of the increased wear and tear on existing equipment (including without limitation, the accelerated depreciation thereof) caused by such excess consumption as reasonably determined by Landlord. Amounts payable by Tenant to Landlord for such excess use of heat or air conditioning systems shall be deemed Additional Rent hereunder and shall be billed on a monthly basis.
(c) Common Areas. The term “Common Area” is defined for all purposes of this Lease as that part of the Project intended for the common use of all tenants, including among other facilities, parking areas, private streets and alleys, landscaping, curbs, loading areas, sidewalks, lighting facilities, drinking fountains, meeting rooms, public
toilets, and the like, but excluding: (i) space in buildings (now or hereafter existing) designated for rental for commercial purposes, as the same may exist from time to time, as well as any space in the Building, it being acknowledged that as the Premises consists of the entire Building, there are no Common Areas in the Building; (ii) streets and alleys maintained by a public authority; and (iii) areas leased to a single-purpose user where access is restricted. In addition, although the roof of the Building is not literally part of the Common Area, it will be deemed to be so included for purposes of: (x) Landlord’s ability to prescribe rules and regulations regarding same; and (y) its inclusion for purposes of Common Area Maintenance 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 buildings, signs or other improvements in the Project, so long as Tenant’s access to and use of the Premises and the parking facilities is not materially adversely affected thereby. Tenant, and its employees and customers, and when duly authorized pursuant to the provisions of this Lease, its subtenants, licensees and concessionaires, shall have the right to use the parking spaces serving the Building as constituted from time to time, such use to be in common with Landlord only (i.e., no third parties will have rights to such parking spaces) and subject to 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. For example, and without limiting the generality of Landlord’s ability to establish rules and regulations governing all aspects of the Common Area, Tenant agrees as follows:
(i) As Tenant is entitled to use all of the parking spaces in the parking lot serving the Building, if any automobile or other vehicle owned by Tenant or any of its employees, its subtenants, its licensees or its concessionaires, or their employees, shall at any time be parked in any part of the Project other than the parking lot serving the Building, Landlord may have such vehicle towed at the cost of the owner of same. Tenant shall have the right to construct electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot.
(ii) Tenant shall not solicit business within the Common Area nor take any action which would interfere with the rights of other persons to use the Common Area.
(iii) 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, so long as access to and use of the Premises is not materially adversely affected thereby. Except in the case of emergency, Landlord will provide reasonable advance written notice to Tenant of any such temporary closing of all or any portion of the parking facilities.
(iv) Subject to Tenant’s rights set forth in Section 24(s) below, with regard to the roof of the Building, use of the roof is reserved to Landlord, or if Tenant demonstrates to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction a need to use same, to Tenant after receiving prior written consent from Landlord, not to be unreasonably withheld.
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, conditioned or delayed, except for the installation of unattached, movable trade fixtures which may be installed without drilling, cutting or otherwise defacing the Premises and as described in the second (2nd) grammatical paragraph of this Section 8(a); however the parties agree that in any event it shall be reasonable for Landlord to deny consent to removal of the stairways within the Building. Except as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence and in the second grammatical paragraph of this Section 8(a), Tenant shall furnish complete plans and specifications to Landlord for its approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, at the time it requests Landlord’s consent to any Alterations if the desired Alterations: (i) will affect the Building’s Systems or Building’s Structure; or (ii) will require the filing of plans and specifications with any governmental or quasi-governmental agency or authority; or (iii) will require a building permit or other federal, state, county or local approvals with respect thereto; or (iv) will cost in excess of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00). Subsequent to obtaining Landlord’s 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 reimburse Landlord within thirty (30) days after the rendition of a bill for all of Landlord’s reasonable 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 Tenant’s plans and specifications and for the monitoring of construction of the Alterations, together with a supervision coordination fee to Landlord in an amount equal to the product of (i) two percent (2%) and (ii) the so-called “hard” costs of the Alterations. If Landlord consents to the making of any Alteration, such Alteration shall be made by Tenant at Tenant’s sole cost and expense by contractors and subcontractors approved in writing by Landlord in accordance with Section 8(b)(iii), which approval shall not unreasonably be withheld, conditioned or delayed. 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, except Tenant shall upon demand by Landlord, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, forthwith and with all due diligence (but in any event not later than ten (10) days after the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease) remove all or any portion of any Specialty Alterations (defined below) 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 and casualty not required to be repaired by Tenant excepted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon Tenant’s request at the time it seeks Landlord’s consent to an Alteration, Landlord agrees to indicate in writing whether it will require any such Alteration which constitutes a Specialty Alteration to be removed upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease. As used herein, a “Specialty Alteration” is any Alteration that is not a normal and customary general office improvement
including, but not limited to improvements which (i) perforate, penetrate or require reinforcement of a floor slab (including, without limitation, interior stairwells or high-density filing or racking systems), (ii) consist of the installation of a raised flooring system, (iii) consist of the installation of a vault or other similar device or system intended to secure the Premises or a portion thereof in a manner that exceeds the level of security necessary for ordinary office space, (iv) involve material plumbing connections (such as, for example but not by way of limitation, kitchens, saunas, showers, and executive bathrooms outside of the Building core and/or special fire safety systems), (v) consist of the dedication of any material portion of the Premises to non-office usage (such as classrooms, bicycle storage rooms, or “cooking” kitchens), (vi) can be seen from outside the Building or (vi) consists of the installation of internal stairways between floors. All construction work done by Tenant within the Premises shall be performed in a good and workmanlike manner with new materials of first-class quality, lien-free and in compliance with all Laws, and in such manner as to cause a minimum of interference with other construction in progress and with the transaction of business in the Project. TENANT AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD LANDLORD HARMLESS AGAINST ANY LOSS, LIABILITY OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM SUCH WORK, AND TENANT SHALL, IF REQUESTED BY LANDLORD, FURNISH A BOND OR OTHER SECURITY SATISFACTORY TO LANDLORD AGAINST ANY SUCH LOSS, LIABILITY OR DAMAGE (PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT NO BOND SHALL BE REQUIRED AS LONG AS NO EVENT OF DEFAULT SHALL HAVE OCCURRED UNDER THIS LEASE). The foregoing indemnity shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. Landlord’s consent to or approval of any Alterations, additions or improvements (or the plans therefor) shall not constitute a representation or warranty by Landlord, nor Landlord’s 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.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be obligated to receive the written consent of Landlord for interior Alterations to the Premises (i) where the estimated cost of the proposed Alteration is One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00) or less, (ii) if said Alterations do not affect the structural components of the Building, or adversely affect the Building’s Systems and cannot be seen from outside the Premises, (iii) if such said Alterations changes do not remove any of the stairways within the Building, and (iv) if said Alteration shall not require a building permit or any federal, state, county or local approvals.
(b) Repairs; Maintenance.
(i) By Landlord. Landlord shall, subject to reimbursement to the extent permitted under Exhibit C, keep the foundation, the exterior walls (except plate glass; windows, doors and other exterior openings; window and door frames, molding, closure devices, locks and hardware and special store fronts; the lighting, heating, steam, air conditioning, life-safety, plumbing (inclusive of sanitary and storm drainage systems) and other electrical, mechanical (including elevators) and electromotive installation, equipment and fixtures in or serving the Building/Project (the “Building Systems”; for avoidance of doubt, the Building Systems do not include supplemental air conditioning units and similar equipment installed by Tenant dedicated to Tenant’s specific use of certain spaces
within the Premises, as opposed to systems serving the Building and Project generally); signs, placards, decorations or other advertising media of any type; and interior painting or other treatment of exterior walls), and roof structure of the Premises in good repair. Landlord, however, shall not be required to repair any damage resulting from the act or negligence of Tenant, its agents, contractors, employees, subtenants, licensees and concessionaires (including, but not limited to, roof leaks resulting from Tenant’s installation of air conditioning equipment or any other roof penetration or placement); and the provisions of the previous sentence are expressly recognized to be subject to the casualty and condemnation provisions of this Lease. In the event that the Premises should become in need of repairs required to be made by Landlord hereunder, Tenant shall give prompt written notice thereof to Landlord and Landlord shall have a reasonable time after receipt by Landlord of such written notice in which to make such repairs. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any interruption of Tenant’s business or inconvenience caused due to any work performed in the Project pursuant to Landlord’s rights and obligations under the Lease, provided, however, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to not disturb the normal conduct of Tenant’s business while performing such repairs and maintenance. In addition, Landlord shall maintain the Common Areas of the Project, as applicable, subject to reimbursement to the extent permitted pursuant to Exhibit C. TENANT HEREBY WAIVES AND RELEASES ITS RIGHT TO MAKE REPAIRS AT LANDLORD’S EXPENSE UNDER SECTIONS 1941 AND 1942 OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE OR UNDER ANY SIMILAR LAW, STATUTE OR ORDINANCE NOW OR HEREAFTER IN EFFECT.
(ii) By Tenant. Subject to Section 8(b)(i) above, Tenant shall keep the interior, non-structural portion of the Premises in good, clean and habitable condition and shall at its sole cost and expense keep the same free of dirt, rubbish, insects, rodents, vermin and other pests and make all needed repairs and replacements, including replacement of cracked or broken interior glass, except for repairs and replacements required to be made by Landlord. Without limiting the coverage of the previous sentence, but subject to the limitation set forth in the following sentence, it is understood that Tenant’s responsibilities therein include the repair and replacement in accordance with all applicable Laws. All contractors and subcontractors shall be subject to Landlord’s written approval in accordance with Section 8(b)(iii). If any repairs required to be made by Tenant hereunder are not commenced within ten (10) Business Days after written notice delivered to Tenant by Landlord (such time period not being subject to the notice and cure provisions of Section 17(f)), Landlord may at its option make such repairs without liability to Tenant for any loss or damage which may result to its stock or business by reason of such repairs, unless caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors. Tenant shall pay to Landlord upon demand as Rent hereunder, the cost of such repairs plus interest at the Default Rate, such interest to accrue continuously from the date of payment by Landlord until repayment by Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall have the right to make such repairs without notice to Tenant in the event of an emergency, or if such repairs relate to the exterior of the Building. At the expiration of this Lease, Tenant shall surrender the Premises in good condition, excepting reasonable wear and tear and casualties not required to be repaired by Tenant. If Landlord elects to store any personal property of Tenant, including goods, wares, merchandise, inventory, trade fixtures and
other personal property of Tenant, same shall be stored at the sole risk of Tenant. Unless caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors, Landlord and its agents shall not be liable 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 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 guest of any such tenant. 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 and ventilation practices. Tenant acknowledges the necessity of housekeeping, ventilation, and moisture control (especially in kitchens, janitor’s closets, bathrooms, break rooms and around outside walls) for mold prevention. 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 agrees to promptly notify Landlord if it observes mold/mildew and/or moisture conditions (from any source, including leaks), and allow Landlord to evaluate and make recommendations and/or take appropriate corrective action. 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, UNLESS SAME IS IN EXISTENCE ON THE DATE OF THIS LEASE OR IS CAUSED BY THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF LANDLORD, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS. In addition, execution of this Lease constitutes acknowledgement by Tenant that control of moisture and mold prevention are integral to its Lease obligations.
Notwithstanding Tenant’s repair and maintenance obligations pursuant to this Section 8(b)(ii), if any item of Tenant’s repair and maintenance obligations set forth herein involves a capital repair, replacement, improvement and/or equipment under generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied (“Tenant Repair Capital Item”), including, without limitation, any necessary replacement of any HVAC unit or air handler serving the Building, Tenant shall provide written notice thereof to Landlord. Landlord shall, pursuant to the receipt of such notice from Tenant, make such Tenant Repair Capital Item, provided that neither party shall have the right to require that the capacity, quality or size of any item to be repaired or replaced be upgraded as part of such work unless the party requiring such upgrade agrees to bear any increased cost associated with the acquisition of/or installation of an upgraded item compared to the acquisition/installation of a reasonably similar substitute item (however, if applicable law requires such an upgrade, the foregoing limitation will not apply). Following completion of such work, provide Tenant with written notice of (i) the total cost of such Tenant Repair Capital Item (“Tenant Repair Capital Item Cost”), (ii) the estimated useful life of such Tenant Repair Capital Item per generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied (“Useful Life”), (iii) the monthly amortization of such Tenant Repair Capital Item Cost over such Useful Life at an interest rate equal to the “prime rate” as announced from time to time by Bank of America, N.A., plus one percent (1%) per annum, and (iv) the monthly amount due and payable by Tenant
to reimburse Landlord for that portion of the amortized Tenant Repair Capital Item Cost applicable to the remainder of the Lease Term, which monthly amount shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord concurrently with the payment by Tenant to Landlord of the monthly Base Rent. The intent of the parties hereto is that, in the event of the necessity of a Tenant Repair Capital Item, Tenant shall only be obligated to pay the cost of such Tenant Repair Capital Item Cost equal to the ratio that the remainder of the Term bears to the Useful Life (i.e., if there are five (5) years remaining in the term and the Useful Life of the applicable Tenant Repair Capital Item Cost is twenty (20) years, Tenant will only be required to pay twenty five percent (25%) of such Tenant Repair Capital Item Cost, plus interest as described in clause (iii) above.
(iii) Performance of Work. All work described in this Section 8 shall be performed only by contractors and subcontractors approved in writing by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Tenant shall cause all contractors and subcontractors to procure and maintain insurance coverage naming Landlord and Landlord’s property management company as additional insureds against such risks, in such amounts, on such forms, and with such companies as Landlord may reasonably require as set forth on Exhibit I attached hereto. Tenant shall provide Landlord with the identities, mailing addresses and telephone numbers of all contractors and subcontractors 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 Building’s Structure and the Building’s Systems). All such work which may affect the Building’s Structure or the Building’s Systems, at Landlord’s election, must be performed by Landlord’s usual contractor for such work (provided that such contractor charges commercially competitive rates for the work in question) or a contractor approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. All work affecting the roof of the Building must be performed by Landlord’s roofing contractor or a contractor approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, and no such work will be permitted if it would void or reduce the warranty on the roof.
(c) Mechanic’s Liens. All work performed, materials furnished, or obligations incurred by or at the request of a Tenant Party shall be deemed authorized and ordered by Tenant only, and Tenant shall not permit any mechanic’s 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 thirty (30) days (unless Landlord is in the process of selling the Building or obtaining financing, in which case Tenant shall within ten (10) days) after Landlord has delivered notice of the filing thereof to Tenant (or such earlier time period as may be necessary to prevent the forfeiture of the Premises, Project or any interest of Landlord therein or the imposition of a civil or criminal fine with respect thereto), 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. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge and agree that their relationship is and shall be solely that of “landlord-tenant” (thereby excluding a relationship of “owner-contractor,” “owner-agent” or other similar relationships).
Accordingly, all materialmen, contractors, artisans, mechanics, laborers and any other persons now or hereafter contracting with Tenant, any contractor or subcontractor of Tenant or any other Tenant Party for the furnishing of any labor, services, materials, supplies or equipment with respect to any portion of the Premises, at any time from the date hereof until the end of the Term, are hereby charged with notice that they look exclusively to Tenant to obtain payment for same. Nothing herein shall be deemed a consent by Landlord to any liens being placed upon the Premises, Project or Landlord’s interest therein due to any work performed by or for Tenant or deemed to give any contractor or subcontractor or materialman any right or interest in any funds held by Landlord to reimburse Tenant for any portion of the cost of such work. TENANT SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS LANDLORD, ITS PROPERTY MANAGER, ANY SUBSIDIARY OR AFFILIATE OF THE FOREGOING, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, MEMBERS, PARTNERS, EMPLOYEES, MANAGERS, CONTRACTORS, ATTORNEYS AND AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “INDEMNITEES”) FROM AND AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, CAUSES OF ACTION, SUITS, JUDGMENTS, DAMAGES AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING REASONABLE 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. The foregoing indemnity shall survive termination or expiration of this Lease.
(i) General Signs. Tenant shall not place or permit to be placed any signs upon: (i) the roof of the Premises; or (ii) the Common Areas; or (iii) any exterior area of the Building without Landlord’s prior written approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed provided any proposed sign is placed only in those locations as may be designated by Landlord, and complies with the sign criteria promulgated by Landlord, the local jurisdiction, and the Owners Association for the Complex from time to time and applicable Law. Upon request of Landlord, Tenant shall promptly remove any sign or other materials which Tenant has placed or permitted to be placed upon the exterior or interior surface of any door or window inside the Premises, or the exterior of the Building, if: (i) required in connection with any cleaning, maintenance or repairs to the Building; or (ii) placed without Landlord’s prior written approval as set forth above. If Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may without liability unless caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors, remove the same at Tenant’s expense. Tenant shall comply with such regulations as may from time to time reasonably be promulgated by Landlord governing signs, advertising material or lettering of all tenants in the Project. Tenant shall be responsible for the repair, painting or replacement of the Building fascia surface or other portion of the Building
where signs are attached, upon vacation of the Premises, or the removal or alteration of its sign for any reason. If Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may have the sign removed and the cost of removal shall be payable by Tenant within thirty (30) days of invoice.
(ii) Building Top and Monument Signs. Subject to the terms of this Section 8 and applicable laws, Landlord hereby grants Tenant and Tenant’s Permitted Transferee (as hereinafter defined in Section 10(f)) the exclusive right, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and as long as Tenant fulfills the Occupancy Requirement (as hereinafter defined), to install building top signage and monument signage as allowed under applicable Law at a location or locations reasonably approved by Landlord, the local jurisdiction, and the Owners Association for the Complex (“Building Signs”).
Tenant’s Building Signs shall be subject to all applicable Law and, with respect to the monument signage and building top signage, the sign criteria promulgated by Landlord for the Project, the local jurisdiction, and the Owners Association for the Complex from time to time. The content, size, design, graphics, materials, colors and other specifications of the Building Signs (including without limitation, the exact location of any and all of the Building Signs), and all contractors or subcontractors utilized by Tenant in connection therewith, shall be subject to the approval of Landlord, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, and shall be consistent with the exterior design, materials and appearance of the Building, and subject to the local jurisdiction and the Owners Association for the Complex. Tenant shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred in connection with the design, construction, installation, repair, operation, maintenance, compliance with laws, utilities (including the costs of metering such utilities usage and the cost of the meter) and removal of the Building Signs. Tenant shall also be responsible for the cost of all utilities (if any) utilized in connection with the Building Signs. Should the name of Tenant be changed to another name (the “New Name”), Tenant shall be entitled to modify, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, Tenant’s name on the Building Signs to reflect Tenant’s New Name, so long as (a) the New Name is not an “Objectionable Name”, and (b) Landlord shall have granted its consent to such New Name (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld). The term “Objectionable Name” shall mean any name which relates to an entity which is of a character or reputation, or is associated with a political orientation or faction, which is inconsistent with the quality of the Complex, or which would otherwise reasonably offend a landlord of buildings comparable to and in the vicinity of the Building. In addition, Tenant’s right to maintain any of the Building Signs shall be suspended at any time during the Lease Term during which the Occupancy Requirement is no longer satisfied or an Event of Default by Tenant is continuing under this Lease. Upon the expiration of the Lease Term or the earlier termination of Tenant’s signage rights under this Section 8(d)(ii), Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, remove the Building Signs and repair any and all damage to the Building caused by such removal.
For purposes of this Section 8(d)(ii), “Occupancy Requirements” shall mean that Tenant or Tenant’s Permitted Transferee is leasing and physically occupying at a minimum fifty percent (50%) of the RSF of the Premises and no Event of Default by Tenant has occurred under this Lease.
9. Use; Compliance with Laws.
(a) Use. Tenant shall use the Premises only for the Permitted Use (as set forth in the Basic Lease Information) 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 Building’s Structure or the Building’s Systems or subject the Premises to any use that would damage the Premises. However, Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, may contest by appropriate proceedings in good faith the legality or applicability of any Law affecting the Premises, provided that (i) the Building or any part thereof shall not be subject to being condemned or vacated by reason of non-compliance or otherwise by reason of such contest, (ii) no unsafe or hazardous condition remains unremedied as a result of such contest, (iii) such non-compliance or contest is not prohibited under any then-applicable mortgage, (iv) such non‑compliance or contest shall not prevent Landlord from obtaining any and all permits and licenses then required by applicable laws in connection with the operation of the Building, and (v) the Certificate of Occupancy for the Building (or any portion) is neither subject to being suspended by reason such of non-compliance or contest. Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall obtain and keep in effect during the Term, all permits, licenses, and other authorizations necessary to permit Tenant to use and occupy the Premises for the Permitted Use in accordance with applicable Laws. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary but subject to the provisions of Section 9(b) below, as between Landlord and Tenant: (i) from and after the Delivery Date, 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; and (ii) Landlord shall bear the risk of complying with the Disabilities Acts in the Common Areas (subject to reimbursement as set forth in Exhibit C), other than compliance that is necessitated by the use of the Premises for other than the Permitted Use or as a result of any alterations or additions made by Tenant (which risk and responsibility shall be borne by Tenant). The Premises shall not be used for any purpose which creates strong, unusual, or offensive odors, fumes, dust or vapors; which emits noise or sounds that are objectionable due to intermittence, beat, frequency, shrillness, or loudness; which is associated with indecent or pornographic matters; or which involves political or moral issues (such as abortion issues). 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 Building. Tenant shall store all trash and garbage within the Premises or in a trash dumpster or similar container approved by Landlord as to type, location and screening; and Tenant shall arrange for the regular pick-up of such trash and garbage at Tenant’s expense (unless Landlord finds it necessary to furnish such a service, in which event 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 or approved by Landlord. Tenant shall not operate an incinerator or burn trash or garbage within 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 Building, which will invalidate the insurance coverage in effect or increase the rate of fire insurance or other insurance on the Premises or the Building.
(b) Landlord’s Compliance with Laws. Landlord shall ensure that the Common Area is in compliance with all applicable Laws, including, but not limited to the Disabilities Acts as of the Delivery Date. In the event that as of the Delivery Date (i) the Common Area is in not in compliance with all such federal, state and local laws and regulations, without regard to Tenant’s use of the Premises or the Tenant Improvements subsequently constructed on or installed in the Premises (herein the “Compliance Condition”), and (ii) Tenant delivers to Landlord written notice of the existence of the Compliance Condition (the “Non-Compliance Notice”) by the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days after the Commencement Date (the “Non-Compliance Outside Date”), then Landlord shall, at Landlord’s sole cost and expense which expense shall not be included in Additional Rent, promptly do that work which is necessary to put the applicable components of the Common Area described in the Non-Compliance Notice into the Compliance Condition; provided, further, that to the extent any such work is required or triggered by Tenant’s proposed use of the Premises (other than office use) or Alterations to be constructed therein by Tenant, then Landlord shall perform such work, but Tenant shall pay Landlord for the cost of such work within thirty (30) days after invoice by Landlord. If Tenant fails to deliver the Non-Compliance Notice to Landlord on or prior to the Non-Compliance Outside Date, Landlord shall have no obligation to perform the work described in the foregoing provisions of this Section 9(b); provided that Landlord shall remain responsible for making all alterations and improvements which are Landlord’s responsibility to repair and maintain pursuant to Section 8(b)(i) above.
10. Assignment and Subletting.
(a) Transfers. Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld, conditioned 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, except as permitted under Section 10(f); (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 use 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. If a proposed transferee does not meet the following conditions, Landlord shall not be deemed to have been unreasonable in withholding its consent to a Transfer (provided that the following list shall not be deemed the exclusive factors for review): (1) in the case of a Transfer that is an assignment or a sublease of the entirety of the Premises, the transferee has a Tangible Net Worth (hereinafter defined) which is not less than the Tangible Net Worth (or Stock Market Capitalization) of Tenant as of the date of execution of this Lease; (2) has a good reputation in the business community; (3) will use the Premises for the Permitted Use and will not use the Premises in any manner that would conflict with any exclusive use agreement or other similar agreement entered into by Landlord with any other tenant of the Project; (4) will not use the Premises or Project in a manner that would materially and unreasonably increase the pedestrian or vehicular traffic to the Premises or Project; (5) is not a
governmental entity, or subdivision or agency thereof; and (6) is not a person or entity with whom Landlord is then, or has been within the three (3) month period prior to the time Tenant seeks to enter into such assignment or subletting, negotiating to lease space in the Project, or any Affiliate of any such person or entity (provided, in the case of clause (6), that Landlord then has sufficient available space in the Project to accommodate occupancy needs of such proposed transferee).
(c) Request for Consent. If Tenant requests Landlord’s consent to a Transfer, 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 transferee’s creditworthiness and character (collectively, the “Transfer Notice”). Concurrently with the Transfer Notice, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a fee of $2,000 to defray Landlord’s expenses in reviewing such request, and in addition Tenant shall reimburse Landlord immediately upon request for its reasonable attorneys’ fees and lender’s fees incurred in connection with considering any request for consent to a Transfer. Landlord will respond to a Transfer Notice within ten (10) Business Days. If Landlord fails to timely respond, Tenant may deliver a second (2nd) notice to Landlord, which notice must contain the following inscription, in bold faced lettering: “SECOND NOTICE DELIVERED PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 10 OF LEASE - - FAILURE TO TIMELY RESPOND WITHIN TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS SHALL RESULT IN DEEMED APPROVAL OF TRANSFER.” If Landlord fails to respond within such ten (10) Business Day period, Landlord shall be deemed to have approved the Transfer in question.
(d) Conditions to Consent. If Landlord consents to a proposed Transfer that is an assignment of the Tenant’s entire interest in the Lease, then the proposed transferee shall deliver to Landlord a written agreement whereby it expressly assumes Tenant’s obligations hereunder; provided, however, any transferee of less than Tenant’s entire interest in the Lease shall be liable only for the obligations under this Lease that are properly allocable to such Transfer for the period of the Transfer in which event the proposed transferee shall deliver to Landlord a written agreement whereby such sublease shall be subject and subordinate to the Lease. No Transfer shall release Tenant from its obligations under this Lease, but rather Tenant and its transferee shall be jointly and severally liable therefor. Landlord’s consent to any Transfer shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent Transfers. If a Monetary 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. Tenant shall pay for the cost of any demising walls or other improvements necessitated by a proposed subletting or assignment.
(e) 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 Landlord’s option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to the then executory provisions of such sublease, except that Landlord shall not be: (1) liable for any previous act or omission of Tenant under such sublease; (2) subject to any counterclaim, offset or defense that such subtenant might have against Tenant; (3) 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; (4) 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 (5) 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(e). The provisions of this Section 10(e) shall be self-operative, and no further instrument shall be required to give effect to this provision.
(f) Permitted Transfers. Notwithstanding Section 10(a), Tenant may Transfer all of its interest in this Lease (a “Permitted Transfer”) to the following types of entities (a “Permitted Transferee”) without the written consent of Landlord:
(1) an Affiliate of Tenant;
(2) 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) Tenant’s 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 greater of (i) the Tangible Net Worth of Tenant as of the date of execution of this Lease and (ii) the Tangible Net Worth of Tenant on the date immediately prior to such Permitted Transfer; or
(3) any corporation, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, limited liability company or other business entity acquiring all or substantially all of Tenant’s assets if such entity’s Tangible Net Worth after such acquisition is not less than the greater of (i) the Tangible Net Worth of Tenant as of the date of execution of this Lease and (ii) the Tangible Net Worth of Tenant on the date immediately prior to such Permitted Transfer.
Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord of any such Permitted Transfer. 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 Complex. No later than ten (10) Business Days after the effective date of any Permitted Transfer, Tenant agrees to furnish Landlord with (A) copies of the instrument effecting any of the foregoing Transfers, (B) documentation establishing Tenant’s 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 Landlord’s 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 generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied (“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.
(g) 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 and reasonable attorneys’ fees; (2) advertising for subtenants or assignees; (3) the actual costs paid in making any improvements or substitutions in the Premises required by any sublease or assignment (or improvement allowances provided in lieu thereof); and (4) the costs of any inducements or concessions given to the subtenant or assignee.
(h) Landlord’s Option. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 10, Landlord shall have the option, by giving written notice to Tenant within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of any Transfer Notice with respect to (i) a proposed assignment of this Lease by Tenant (other than a Permitted Transfer), or (ii) a proposed sublease of at least any one full floor of the Premises for a term which is essentially the remainder of the Term or (iii) any sublease proposed by Tenant which would result in over fifty percent (50%) of the Building being subleased (under the proposed sublease specifications and proposal or in addition to prior subleases), (the portion of the Premises proposed to be transferred pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) or (iii), the “Subject Space”) to recapture the Subject Space by terminating this Lease with respect to the Subject Space, as of the date stated in the Transfer Notice as the effective date of the proposed Transfer until the last day of the term of the Transfer as set forth in the Transfer Notice; provided, however, that if Tenant is required to remove any Specialty Alterations from the Subject Space prior to the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease with respect to the Subject Space, then Tenant shall be afforded
such time as may reasonably be necessary to complete such removal or restoration work prior to the effective date of the recapture, no additional cost or penalty to Tenant. In the event of a recapture by Landlord, if this Lease shall be canceled with respect to less than the entire Premises, the Rent reserved herein shall be prorated on the basis of the number of rentable square feet retained by Tenant in proportion to the number of rentable square feet contained in the Premises, and this Lease as so amended shall continue thereafter in full force and effect, and upon request of either party, the parties shall execute written confirmation of the same. If Landlord declines, or fails to elect in a timely manner to recapture, sublease or take an assignment of the Subject Space under this Section 10(h), then, provided Landlord has consented to the proposed Transfer, Tenant shall be entitled to proceed to transfer the Subject Space to the proposed Transferee, subject to provisions of this Section 10. Further, if Landlord delivers a recapture notice to Tenant, Tenant will have the right, to be exercised by written notice delivered to Landlord within five (5) Business Days following receipt of such recapture notice, to rescind Tenant’s Transfer Notice, in which event no such Transfer shall take place and the recapture shall be void and of no further force or effect.
(i) Limitations on Transfers or Subleases by Tenant. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 10, Floors 2, 3, & 4 cannot be subdivided or sublet into less than whole floors (but may be sublet separately so long as the internal stairway connecting the third (3rd) and fourth (4th) floors is not removed).

This Lease shall be subordinate to any deed of trust, mortgage, or other security instrument (each, a “Mortgage”), or any ground lease, master lease, or primary lease (each, 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 “Landlord’s Mortgagee”). Any Landlord’s 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 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 documentation, in recordable form if required, as a Landlord’s Mortgagee may reasonably request to evidence the subordination of this Lease to such Landlord’s Mortgagee’s Mortgage or Primary Lease (including a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement) or, if the Landlord’s Mortgagee so elects, the subordination of such Landlord’s Mortgagee’s Mortgage or Primary Lease to this Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be obligated to execute any document which alters any material provision of the Lease.
Landlord shall provide Tenant with a commercially reasonable subordination, non-disturbance, and attornment agreement (“SNDA”) in favor of Tenant from any mortgage holder in existence as of the Effective Date (“Superior Mortgagee”). Landlord agrees to provide Tenant with commercially reasonable non-disturbance, subordination and attornment agreement(s) in favor of Tenant from any Superior Mortgagee(s) of Landlord who later

(b) Attornment. Tenant shall attorn to any party succeeding to Landlord’s interest in the Premises, whether by purchase, foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, power of sale, termination of lease, or otherwise, upon such party’s request, and shall execute such agreements confirming such attornment as such party may reasonably request. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be obligated to execute any document which alters any material provision of the Lease.
(c) Notice to Landlord’s Mortgagee. Tenant shall not seek to enforce any remedy it may have to terminate this Lease due to any default on the part of Landlord without first giving written notice by certified mail, return receipt requested or nationally recognized overnight courier, specifying the default in reasonable detail, to any Landlord’s Mortgagee whose address has been given to Tenant, and affording such Landlord’s Mortgagee a reasonable opportunity to perform Landlord’s obligations hereunder.
13. Rules and Regulations. Tenant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the Building which are attached hereto as Exhibit E. Landlord may, from time to time, reasonably change such rules and regulations for the safety, care, or cleanliness of the Building and related facilities, provided that such changes are applicable to all tenants of the Building, will not unreasonably interfere with Tenant’s use of or access to the Premises or the parking facilities, will not modify any of the provisions of this Lease, and are enforced by Landlord in a non-discriminatory manner. Tenant shall be responsible for the compliance with such rules and regulations by each Tenant Party.
(a) Total Taking. 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.
(b) Partial Taking - Tenant’s Rights. If any part of the Building becomes subject to a Taking and such Taking will prevent Tenant from conducting its business in the Premises (or a material portion) in a manner reasonably comparable to that conducted immediately before such Taking for a period of more than one hundred eighty (180) days, then Tenant may terminate this Lease as of the date of such Taking by giving written notice to Landlord within thirty (30) days after the Taking, and Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such Taking. If Tenant does not terminate this Lease, then Rent shall be abated on a reasonable basis as to that portion of the Premises rendered untenantable by the Taking. TENANT HEREBY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHTS IT MIGHT OTHERWISE HAVE PURSUANT TO SECTION 1265.130 OF THE CALIFORNIA CODE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE.
(c) Partial Taking - Landlord’s Rights. If any material portion, but less than all, of the Building becomes subject to a Taking, or if Landlord is required to pay any of the proceeds arising from a Taking to a Landlord’s
Mortgagee, 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.

(d) Award. If any Taking occurs, then Landlord shall receive the entire award or other compensation for the Land, the Building, and other improvements taken; however, Tenant may separately pursue a claim (to the extent it will not reduce Landlord’s award) against the condemnor for the value of Tenant’s personal property which Tenant is entitled to remove under this Lease, moving costs, loss of business and goodwill, and other claims it may have (excluding any claim related to its leasehold interest).
(e) Repair. If the Lease is not terminated, Landlord shall proceed with reasonable diligence to restore the remaining part of the Premises and Building substantially to their former condition to the extent feasible to constitute a complete and tenantable Building and Premises; 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.
15. Fire or Other Casualty.
(a) Repair Estimate. If the Premises or the Building are damaged by fire or other casualty (a “Casualty”), Landlord shall use good faith 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.
(b) Tenant’s Rights. If a material portion of the Premises is damaged by Casualty such that Tenant is prevented from conducting its business in the Premises (or such material portion) in a manner reasonably comparable to that conducted immediately before such Casualty and Landlord estimates that the damage caused thereby cannot be repaired within three hundred sixty-five (365) days after the date of the casualty (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. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant was entitled to but elected not to exercise its right to terminate this Lease and Landlord does not substantially complete the repair and restoration of the Premises within two (2) months after the expiration of the estimated period of time set forth in Landlord’s Damage Notice, which period shall be extended to the extent of any delays caused by Tenant, then Tenant may terminate this Lease by written notice to Landlord within thirty (30) days after the expiration of such period, as the same may be so extended.
(c) Landlord’s Rights. If a Casualty damages the Premises or a material portion of the Building and: (1) Landlord estimates that the damage to the Premises cannot be repaired within the Repair Period; (2) the damage
to the Premises exceeds fifty percent (50%) of the replacement cost thereof (excluding foundations and footings), as estimated by Landlord, and such damage occurs during the last two (2) years of the Term (unless Tenant exercises any renewal rights it may have in this Lease); (3) the damage to the Premises exceeds fifty percent (50%) of the replacement cost thereof (excluding foundations and footings), as estimated by Landlord, and Landlord makes a good faith determination that restoring the Building would be uneconomical; or (4) Landlord is required to pay insurance proceeds arising out of the Casualty in excess of $1,000,000.00 to a Landlord’s 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.
(d) Repair Obligation. 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, , Landlord shall not be required to repair or replace any Alterations or betterments within the Premises (which shall be promptly and with due diligence repaired and restored by Tenant at Tenant’s sole cost and expense) or any furniture, equipment, trade fixtures or personal property of Tenant or others in the Premises or the Building. If Landlord fails to complete repairs to the Premises within three hundred sixty-five (365) days after the date of the casualty, subject to force majeure delays, then Tenant shall have the right to terminate the Lease upon written notice delivered to Landlord at any time after such three hundred sixty-five (365) day period and prior to Landlord’s Substantial Completion of such repairs. If this Lease is terminated under the provisions of this Section 15, Landlord shall be entitled to the full proceeds of the insurance policies providing coverage for all Alterations, improvements and betterments in the Premises (and, if Tenant has failed to maintain insurance on such items as required by this Lease, Tenant shall pay Landlord an amount equal to the proceeds Landlord would have received had Tenant maintained insurance on such items as required by this Lease).
(e) Abatement of Rent. If the Premises are damaged by Casualty, Rent for the portion of the Premises rendered untenantable or inaccessible by the damage shall be abated on a reasonable basis from the date of damage; Tenant’s abatement period shall continue until the completion of Landlord’s repairs and until Tenant has had a sufficient period thereafter in which to have access to the Premises to repair and restore to the Tenant Improvements and any Alterations subsequently constructed by Tenant and to move into the Premises over the course of one (1) weekend (or until the date of termination of this Lease by Landlord or Tenant as provided above, as the case may be).
` (f) Waiver of Statutory Provisions. The provisions of this Lease, including this Section 15, constitute an express agreement between Landlord and Tenant with respect to any and all damage to, or destruction of, all or any part of the Premises, the Building or any other portion of the Project, and any statute or regulation of the State of California, including, without limitation, Sections 1932(2) and 1933(4) of the California Civil Code, with respect to any rights or obligations concerning damage or destruction in the absence of an express agreement between the parties,

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 or in or on the Building or Project. If any taxes for which Tenant is liable are levied or assessed against Landlord or Landlord’s property and Landlord elects to pay the same, or if the assessed value of Landlord’s 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.

(f) Other Defaults. Tenant’s 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) calendar days or more after Landlord has delivered to Tenant written notice thereof; 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 ten (10) days after receipt of written notice from Landlord and diligently prosecutes such cure to completion within sixty (60) days of such notice; and

18. Remedies. Upon an Event of Default, Landlord shall have, in addition to any other remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity, the option to pursue any one or more of the following remedies, each and all of which shall be cumulative and nonexclusive, without any notice or demand whatsoever.
(a) Terminate this Lease, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord, and if Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may, without prejudice to any other remedy which it may have for possession or arrearages in rent, enter upon and take possession of the Premises and expel or remove Tenant and any other person who may be occupying the Premises or any part thereof, without being liable for prosecution or any claim for damages therefor; and Landlord may recover from Tenant the following:
(i) The worth at the time of award of any unpaid rent which has 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 rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iii) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the Lease Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iv) Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant’s failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom, specifically including, but not limited to, brokerage commissions and advertising expenses incurred, expenses of remodeling the Premises or any portion thereof for a new tenant, whether for the same or a different use, and any special concessions made to obtain a new tenant; and
(v) At Landlord’s election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by applicable law.
The term “rent” as used in this Section 18 shall be deemed to be and to mean all sums of every nature required to be paid by Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Lease, whether to Landlord or to others. As used in Sections 18(a)(i) and (ii) above, the “worth at the time of award” shall be computed by allowing interest at the Default Rate, but in no case greater than the maximum amount of such interest permitted by law. As used in Section 18(a)(iii) above, the “worth at the time of award” shall be 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%).
(b) Landlord shall have the remedy described in California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (lessor may continue lease in effect after lessee’s breach and abandonment and recover Rent as it becomes due, if lessee has the right to sublet or assign, subject only to reasonable limitations). Accordingly, if Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease on account of any default by Tenant, Landlord may, from time to time, without terminating this Lease, enforce all of its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover all rent as it becomes due.
(c) Subleases of Tenant. If Landlord elects to terminate this Lease on account of any Event of Default by Tenant, as set forth in this Section 18, Landlord shall have the right to terminate any and all subleases, licenses, concessions or other consensual arrangements for possession entered into by Tenant and affecting the Premises or may, in Landlord’s sole discretion, succeed to Tenant’s interest in such subleases, licenses, concessions or arrangements. In the event of Landlord’s election to succeed to Tenant’s interest in any such subleases, licenses, concessions or arrangements, Tenant shall, as of the date of notice by Landlord of such election, have no further right to or interest in the rent or other consideration receivable thereunder.
(d) Form of Payment After Default. Following the occurrence of an Event of Default by Tenant, Landlord shall have the right to require that any or all subsequent amounts paid by Tenant to Landlord hereunder, whether in the cure of the Event of Default in question or otherwise, be paid in the form of cash, money order, cashier’s or certified check drawn on an institution reasonably acceptable to Landlord, or by other means approved by Landlord, notwithstanding any prior practice of accepting payments in any different form.
(e) Efforts to Relet. For the purposes of this Section 18, Tenant’s right to possession shall not be deemed to have been terminated by efforts of Landlord to relet the Premises, by its acts of maintenance or preservation with respect to the Premises, or by appointment of a receiver to protect Landlord’s interests hereunder. The foregoing enumeration is not exhaustive, but merely illustrative of acts which may be performed by Landlord without terminating Tenant’s right to possession.
(f) Landlord Defaults and Tenant Remedies. Except as otherwise provided in this Lease and specifically subject to Section 24(b), if Landlord fails in the performance of any of Landlord’s obligations under this Lease and such failure continues for thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of written notice thereof from Tenant (and an additional reasonable time after such receipt if (A) such failure cannot be cured within such thirty (30) day
period, and (B) Landlord commences curing such failure within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently pursues the curing of such failure), then Tenant shall be entitled to exercise any remedies that Tenant may have at law or in equity. TENANT WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO OBTAIN ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR SIMILAR DAMAGES.
19. Payment by Tenant; Non-Waiver; Cumulative Remedies.
(a) Payment by Tenant. Upon any Event of Default, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all reasonable costs incurred by Landlord (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) in: (1) obtaining possession of the Premises; (2) removing and storing Tenant’s or any other occupant’s property; (3) repairing, restoring, altering, remodeling, or otherwise putting the Premises into condition reasonably acceptable to a new tenant (provided that Tenant shall not be responsible for costs to change the character of the Premises from an office use to a primarily retail, industrial or other non-office type of use); (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 (collectively, the items described in this clause (4) being referred to herein as “Costs of Reletting”)) (however, if Landlord relets the Premises for a term (the “Relet Term”) that extends past the scheduled Expiration Date of this Lease (without consideration of any earlier termination pursuant to this Article 18), the Costs of Reletting shall be applied as provided herein based on the percentage that the length of the Term remaining hereunder on the date Landlord terminates the Lease or Tenant’s right to possession bears to the length of the Relet Term. For example, if there are two (2) years left on the Term at the time that Landlord terminates possession and, prior to the expiration of such two year period, Landlord enters into a Relet Term of ten (10) years with a new tenant, 20% of the Proratable Costs of Reletting shall be considered in determining Landlord’s damages); (5) performing Tenant’s 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. To the full extent permitted by Law, Landlord and Tenant agree the federal and state courts of the state in which the Premises are located shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any matter relating to or arising from this Lease and the parties’ rights and obligations under this Lease.
(b) No Waiver. Landlord’s acceptance of Rent following an Event of Default shall not waive Landlord’s rights regarding such Event of Default. No waiver by a party hereto of any violation or breach of any of the terms contained herein by the other party shall waive such party’s rights regarding any future violation of such term. Landlord’s acceptance of any partial payment of Rent shall not waive Landlord’s 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, Landlord’s acceptance of a partial payment of Rent shall not constitute an accord and satisfaction of the full amount of the Rent that is due.
(c) 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.
20. 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 termination of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord the Premises with all improvements located therein in good repair and condition, free of Hazardous Materials placed on the Premises during the Term (unless caused by Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors), in broom-clean condition including cleaning of interior surface of all walls, flooring, ceiling and/or any roof deck due to Tenant’s specific use (with such cleaning by commercial cleaning application as approved by Landlord), reasonable wear and tear (and condemnation and Casualty damage, as to which Section 14 and Section 15 shall control) excepted, and shall deliver to Landlord all keys to the Premises. Tenant will remove all unattached trade fixtures, furniture, and personal property placed in the Premises or elsewhere in the Building by Tenant (but Tenant may not remove any such item which was paid for, in whole or in part, by Landlord or any wiring or cabling unless Landlord requires such removal). Additionally, at Landlord’s option as described in Section 8(a), Tenant shall (not later than ten (10) days after the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease) remove such Specialty Alterations, as well as wiring, conduits, or cabling installed by Tenant; however, Tenant shall not be required to remove the initial Tenant Improvements, nor shall Tenant be required to remove any other improvement or addition to the Premises or the Project if Landlord has specifically agreed in writing that such other improvement or addition in question need not be removed. Tenant shall repair all damage caused by such removal. All items not so removed shall, at Landlord’s option, be deemed to have been abandoned by Tenant and may be appropriated, sold, stored, destroyed, or otherwise disposed of by Landlord at Tenant’s cost without notice to Tenant and without any obligation to account for such items; any such disposition shall not be considered a strict foreclosure or other exercise of Landlord’s rights in respect of the security interest granted under Section 20. The provisions of this Section 20 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.
21. 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, Tenant shall pay, in addition to the other Rent, Base Rent equal to the greater of i) one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Base Rent payable during the last month of the Term or ii) the then prevailing Market Asking Rate for Class A Space in Redwood Shores as published by local area commercial real estate brokerages (as applicable, the “Holdover Rate”), and Tenant shall otherwise continue to be subject to all of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease. The provisions of this Section 21 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 (EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THE FOLLOWING SENTENCE), 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 remains in the Premises at the end of the Term with the written consent of Landlord, then Tenant shall be a month-to-month tenant at the Holdover Rate, and Tenant shall otherwise continue to be subject to all of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease.
22. Certain Rights Reserved by Landlord. Provided that the exercise of such rights does not unreasonably interfere with Tenant’s occupancy of or access to the Premises, Landlord shall have the following rights:
(a) Building Operations. To make inspections, repairs, 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 (i.e., telephone or electronic mail notice to Tenant’s director of facilities or office manager), except in cases of real or apparent emergency, in which case no notice shall be required) and, during the continuance of any such work, to interrupt or temporarily suspend Building services and facilities; and to change the name of the Building;
(b) Security. To take such reasonable security measures as Landlord deems advisable (provided, however, that any such security measures are for Landlord’s own protection, and Tenant acknowledges that Landlord is not a guarantor of the security or safety of any Tenant Party and that such security matters are the responsibility of Tenant); including evacuating the Building for cause, suspected cause, or for drill purposes; temporarily denying access to the Building;
(c) Prospective Purchasers and Lenders. To enter the Premises at all reasonable hours upon reasonable advance written notice to Tenant to show the Premises to prospective purchasers or lenders; and
(d) Prospective Tenants. At any time during the last twenty-four (24) months of the Term (or earlier if Tenant has notified Landlord in writing that it does not desire to renew the Term) or at any time following the occurrence of an Event of Default, upon reasonable advance written notice to Tenant to enter the Premises at all reasonable hours to show the Premises to prospective tenants.
(e) Condition on Non-Emergency Entry; Secured Access. Tenant shall be entitled to have an employee of Tenant accompany all persons entering the Premises, provided Tenant makes such employee available at the time Landlord reasonably desires to enter the Premises. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Section 22, Tenant may designate in writing certain reasonable areas of the Premises as “Secured Areas” should Tenant require such areas for the purpose of securing certain valuable property or confidential information and in such event Landlord shall not enter such Secured Areas except in the event of an emergency; provided, however, that any
separate locks restricting access to any Secured Area must nonetheless match with the Building’s master keyset in order to allow Building management to access the Secured Area in the event of emergency. If Landlord must gain access to a Secured Area in a non-emergency situation, Landlord shall contact Tenant, and Landlord and Tenant shall arrange a mutually agreed upon time for Landlord to have such access. If Landlord determines, in good faith, that an emergency requires Landlord to gain access to a Secured Area, Landlord may enter the Secured Area without the necessity of advance notice to Tenant (except that Landlord will immediately notify Tenant thereafter of Landlord’s entry). Landlord shall have no obligation to provide janitorial service or cleaning in any Secured Area to the extent that Tenant does not allow Landlord’s janitorial staff to have access to such areas.
23. Hazardous Materials.
(a) During the Term of this Lease, Tenant shall comply with all Environmental Laws and Environmental Permits (each as defined in Section 23(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 Environmental Permits, will immediately pay or cause to be paid all costs and expenses incurred by reason of such compliance, and will obtain and renew all Environmental Permits required for operation or use of the Premises.
(b) 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 23(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 (i) for limited quantities used or stored at the Premises and required in connection with the routine operation and maintenance of the Premises such as office products and cleaning supplies, and then only in compliance with all applicable Environmental Laws, and (ii) as disclosed by Tenant in the Environmental Questionnaire attached as Exhibit I.
(c) 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. 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 in violation of the terms of the Lease, then such report shall be at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, and the cost of such assessment shall be immediately due and payable by Tenant to Landlord within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice therefor.
(d) Tenant will promptly advise Landlord in writing of any of the following: (1) any pending or threatened Environmental Claim (as defined in Section 23(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 Tenant’s 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) Tenant will not change or permit to be changed the present use of the Premises unless Tenant shall have notified Landlord thereof in writing and Landlord shall have determined, in its sole and absolute discretion, that such change will not result in the presence of Hazardous Materials on the Premises except for those described in Section 23(b) above.
(f) TENANT AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS LANDLORD AND INDEMNITEES (as defined in Section 8.c) FROM AND AGAINST ALL OBLIGATIONS (INCLUDING REMOVAL AND REMEDIAL ACTIONS), LOSSES, CLAIMS, SUITS, JUDGMENTS, LIABILITIES, PENALTIES, DAMAGES (INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES), COSTS AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ AND CONSULTANTS’ FEES AND EXPENSES) OF ANY KIND OR NATURE WHATSOEVER THAT MAY AT ANY TIME BE INCURRED BY, IMPOSED ON OR ASSERTED AGAINST SUCH LANDLORD AND INDEMNITEES DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BASED ON, OR ARISING OR RESULTING FROM (A) THE ACTUAL OR REASONABLY 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 TENANT’S OPERATION OR USE OF THE PREMISES (THE “TENANT HAZARDOUS MATERIALS INDEMNIFIED MATTERS”). THE FOREGOING INDEMNITY SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY HAZARDOUS MATERIALS THAT WERE LOCATED AT THE PREMISES OR THE PROJECT ON THE DELIVERY DATE, NOR ANY HAZARDOUS MATERIALS PLACED ON THE PREMISES OR PROJECT BY LANDLORD, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR CONTRACTORS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 23 SHALL SURVIVE THE EXPIRATION OR SOONER TERMINATION OF THIS LEASE.
LANDLORD AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS THE TENANT FROM AND AGAINST ALL OBLIGATIONS (INCLUDING REMOVAL AND REMEDIAL ACTIONS), LOSSES, CLAIMS, SUITS, JUDGMENTS, LIABILITIES, PENALTIES, DAMAGES (INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES), COSTS AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ AND CONSULTANTS’ FEES AND EXPENSES) OF ANY KIND OR NATURE WHATSOEVER THAT MAY AT ANY TIME BE INCURRED BY, IMPOSED ON OR ASSERTED AGAINST SUCH LANDLORD AND INDEMNITEES DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BASED ON, OR ARISING OR RESULTING FROM THE ACTUAL OR REASONABLY ALLEGED PRESENCE OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS ON THE PROJECT WHICH IS CAUSED OR PERMITTED BY LANDLORD OR LANDLORD’S EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS.
(g) To the extent that the undertaking in the preceding paragraphs 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 Tenant Hazardous Materials Indemnified Matters incurred by Landlord and Indemnitees.
(h) 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.
(i) “Hazardous Materials” means (i) petroleum or petroleum products, natural or synthetic gas, asbestos in any form that is or could become friable, urea formaldehyde foam insulation, and radon gas; (ii) any substances defined as or included in the definition of “hazardous substances,” “hazardous wastes,” “hazardous materials,” “extremely hazardous wastes,” “restricted hazardous wastes,” “toxic substances,” “toxic pollutants,” “contaminants” or “pollutants,” or words of similar import, under any applicable Environmental Law; and (iii) any other substance exposure which is regulated by any governmental authority; (b) ”Environmental Law” means any federal, state or local statute, law, rule, regulation, ordinance, code, policy or rule of common law now or hereafter in effect and in each case as amended, and any judicial or administrative interpretation thereof, including any judicial or administrative order, consent decree or judgment, relating to the environment, health, safety or Hazardous Materials, including without limitation, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, 42 U.S.C. §§ 9601 et seq.; the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 6901 et seq.; the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, 49 U.S.C. §§ 1801 et seq.; the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. §§ 1251 et seq.; the Toxic Substances Control Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 2601 et seq.; the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 7401 et seq.; the Safe Drinking Water Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 300f et seq.; the Atomic Energy Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2011 et seq.; the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, 7 U.S.C. §§ 136 et seq.; the Occupational Safety and Health Act, 29 U.S.C. §§ 651 et seq.; (c) “Environmental Claims” means any and all administrative, regulatory or judicial actions, suits, demands, demand letters, claims, liens, notices of non-compliance or violation, investigations, proceedings, consent orders or

Landlord’s liability to Tenant shall be further limited to Landlord’s equity interest in the Project. ADDITIONALLY, TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, TENANT HEREBY WAIVES ANY STATUTORY LIEN IT MAY HAVE AGAINST LANDLORD OR ITS ASSETS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE BUILDING.
(c) Force Majeure. Other than for Tenant’s obligations under this Lease that can be performed by the payment of money (e.g., payment of Rent and maintenance of insurance), whenever a period of time is herein prescribed for action to be taken by either party hereto, such party shall not be liable or responsible for, and there shall be excluded from the computation of any such period of time, any delays due to strikes, riots, acts of God, shortages of labor or materials, war, terrorism, governmental laws, regulations, or restrictions, or any other causes of any kind whatsoever which are beyond the control of such party (each a “Force Majeure Event”); provided that in each case, the party seeking the extension of time due to the Force Majeure Event shall have notified the other party of the event or condition giving rise to any such delay within five (5) Business Days after the requesting party learns of the occurrence of the event or condition and thereafter regularly (but in no event less often than weekly) kept the other party apprised of the status.

notice of an event or condition that otherwise constitutes a Force Majeure Event within five (5) Business Days after it learns of such event or condition or fails to keep the other part regularly apprised of the status of such event or condition, as applicable, then such event or condition shall not constitute a Force Majeure Event hereunder unless and until the requesting party gives a notice that such Force Majeure Event is continuing and specifying the date of onset of the Force Majeure Event, in which event the duration of such Force Majeure Event shall be limited to the period of continuation commencing on the date of such notice of continuation and shall be subject to the continuing obligation that the requesting party thereafter regularly (but no less often than weekly) keeps the other party apprised of the status.
(d) Brokerage. Neither Landlord nor Tenant has dealt with any broker or agent in connection with the negotiation or execution of this Lease, other than as set forth in the Basic Lease Information. Landlord agrees to compensate the brokers identified in the Basic Lease Information pursuant to the provisions of a separate written agreement. EACH PARTY SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS THE OTHER PARTY FROM AND AGAINST ALL COSTS, EXPENSES, ATTORNEYS’ FEES, LIENS AND OTHER LIABILITY FOR COMMISSIONS OR OTHER COMPENSATION CLAIMED BY ANY BROKER OR AGENT CLAIMING THE SAME BY, THROUGH, OR UNDER THE INDEMNIFYING PARTY.

From time to time, Tenant shall furnish to any party designated by Landlord, within ten (10) Business Days after Landlord has made a request therefor, a certificate signed by Tenant confirming and containing such factual certifications and representations as to this Lease as Landlord may reasonably request. Unless otherwise required by Landlord’s Mortgagee or a prospective purchaser or mortgagee of the Building, the initial form of estoppel certificate to be signed by Tenant is attached hereto as Exhibit G.

The parties hereto may change their addresses by giving notice thereof to the other in conformity with this provision.
(g) Separability. If any clause or provision of this Lease is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws, then the remainder of this Lease shall not be affected thereby and in lieu of such clause or provision, there shall be added as a part of this Lease a clause or provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable clause or provision as may be possible and be legal, valid, and enforceable.
(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 a party hereto unless such waiver is in writing signed by the waiving party, 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 a party hereto to insist upon the performance by the other 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 upon their respective successors in interest and legal representatives, except as otherwise herein expressly provided. This Lease is for the sole benefit of Landlord and Tenant, and, other than Landlord’s Mortgagee, no third party shall be deemed a third party beneficiary hereof.
(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, but not otherwise, subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease.
(j) No Merger. There shall be no merger of the leasehold estate hereby created with the fee estate in the Premises or any part thereof if the same person acquires or holds, directly or indirectly, this Lease or any interest in this Lease and the fee estate in the leasehold Premises or any interest in such fee estate.
(k) 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.
(l) 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.
(m) Waiver of Jury Trial. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, LANDLORD AND TENANT EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LITIGATION OR TO HAVE A JURY PARTICIPATE IN RESOLVING ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR WITH RESPECT TO THIS LEASE OR ANY OTHER INSTRUMENT, DOCUMENT OR AGREEMENT EXECUTED OR DELIVERED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THE TRANSACTIONS RELATED HERETO.
(n) Governing Law. This Lease shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California.
(o) Recording. Tenant shall not record this Lease or any memorandum of this Lease without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent may be withheld or denied in the sole and absolute discretion of Landlord, and any recordation by Tenant shall be a material breach of this Lease. Tenant grants to Landlord a power of attorney to execute and record a release releasing any such recorded instrument of record that was recorded without the prior written consent of Landlord, which power of attorney is coupled with an interest and is non-revocable during the Term.
(p) Joint and Several Liability. If Tenant is comprised of more than one (1) party, each such party shall be jointly and severally liable for Tenant’s obligations under this Lease. All unperformed obligations of Tenant hereunder not fully performed at the end of the Term shall survive the end of the Term, including payment obligations with respect to Rent and all obligations concerning the condition and repair of the Premises.
(q) Financial Reports. The provisions of this Section 24(q) will apply only if at any time Tenant’s financial statements (i.e., Forms 10K and 10Q) are not publicly available (for example, on the SEC website). Within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s request, Tenant will furnish Tenant’s 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, Tenant’s internally prepared financial statements. If Tenant is a publicly traded corporation, Tenant may satisfy its obligations hereunder by providing to Landlord Tenant’s most recent annual and quarterly reports. Landlord will not disclose any aspect of Tenant’s financial statements that Tenant designates to Landlord as confidential except: (1) to Landlord’s Mortgagee or prospective mortgagees or purchasers of the Building; (2) in litigation between Landlord and Tenant; and (3) if required by court order. Tenant shall not be required to deliver the financial statements required under this Section 24(q) more than once in any twelve (12) month period unless requested by Landlord’s Mortgagee or a prospective buyer or lender of the Building or an Event of Default occurs.
(r) Landlord’s 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 Landlord’s 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 Landlord’s 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.
(s) Telecommunications. Except as provided hereinbelow, Tenant and its telecommunications companies, including local exchange telecommunications companies and alternative access vendor services companies,
shall have no right of access to and within the Building, for the installation and operation of telecommunications systems, including voice, video, data, Internet, and any other services provided over wire, fiber optic, microwave, wireless, and any other transmission systems (“Telecommunications Services”), for part or all of Tenant’s telecommunications within the Building and from the Building to any other location without Landlord’s prior written consent. All providers of Telecommunications Services shall be required to comply with the rules and regulations of the Building, applicable Laws and Landlord’s commercially reasonable policies and practices for the Building. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord shall not be required to provide or arrange for any Telecommunications Services and that Landlord shall have no liability to any Tenant Party in connection with the installation, operation or maintenance of Telecommunications Services or any equipment or facilities relating thereto. Tenant, at its cost and for its own account, shall be solely responsible for obtaining all Telecommunications Services.
Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, if Tenant requires the installation of one or more satellite dishes or other data transmission equipment on the roof of the Building (collectively, the “Telecommunications Equipment”), then upon thirty (30) days advance written notice to Landlord and subject to available capacity and Tenant’s compliance with all applicable laws and Landlord’s requirements for property and roof maintenance and repair, Tenant may place such Telecommunications Equipment on the roof of the Premises in a location reasonably approved by Landlord. The installation of the Telecommunications Equipment shall constitute an Alteration and shall be performed in accordance with and subject to the provisions of Article 8 of this Lease, and the Telecommunications Equipment shall be treated for all purposes of the Lease as if the same were Tenant’s property. The cost of the Telecommunications Equipment and all costs of installing, maintaining and removing the Telecommunications Equipment shall be borne solely by Tenant. Upon the expiration of the Term or upon any earlier termination of the Lease, Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and subject to the control of and direction from Landlord, remove the Telecommunications Equipment, repair and damage caused thereby, and restore the roof to the condition existing prior to the installation of the Telecommunications Equipment, reasonable wear and tear excepted.
(t) Authority. Tenant (if a corporation, partnership or other business entity) hereby represents and warrants to Landlord that Tenant is a duly formed and existing entity qualified to do business in the state in which the Premises are located, that Tenant has full right and authority to execute and deliver this Lease, and that each person signing on behalf of Tenant is authorized to do so.
(u) Waiver. LANDLORD AND TENANT EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY THAT THE PREMISES ARE SUITABLE FOR TENANT’S INTENDED COMMERCIAL PURPOSE, AND TENANT’S 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. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, TENANT WAIVES THE BENEFIT OF ANY CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS.
(v) Tenant Representation. Tenant is not a person or entity described by Sec. 1 of the Executive Order (No. 13,224) Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions With Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism, 66 Fed. Reg. 49,079 (Sept. 24, 2001), and does not engage in any dealings or transactions, and is not otherwise associated, with any such persons or entities.
(w) Transportation Management. Tenant shall comply with all present or future programs having the force of law intended to manage parking, transportation or traffic in and around the Complex, and in connection therewith, Tenant shall take responsible action for the transportation planning and management of all employees located at the Premises by working directly with Landlord, any governmental transportation management organization or any other transportation-related committees or entities.
(x) CC&Rs. Tenant acknowledges that this Lease and Tenant’s rights therein are subject to that certain Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the Shores Business Center, dated _____, and recorded on _____ as Instrument No. _____ in the Official Records of San Mateo County, California (as the same has been and may be amended) (the “CC&Rs”).

Landlord may make a good faith estimate of the Additional Rent to be due by Tenant for any calendar year or part thereof during the Term. Commencing upon the Commencement Date, and during each calendar year or partial calendar year of the Term and any period Tenant occupies a portion of the Premises before the Term commences, 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 therein. 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 Common Area Maintenance Costs are available for each calendar year.
2. Common Area Maintenance Costs.

Tenant shall pay all water, electricity, sewerage, gas, telephone and other utilities for the Premises, either by reimbursement to Landlord or (at Tenant’s election) by directly contracting from the public utility company furnishing same. Any meters required in connection therewith shall be installed at Tenant’s sole cost.
4. Taxes. Tenant shall pay Tenant’s Proportionate Share of all Taxes for the Project for each year and partial year falling within the Term. Tenant shall pay Tenant’s Proportionate Share of Taxes in the same manner as provided above for Tenant’s Proportionate Share of Common Area Maintenance Costs. “Taxes” shall mean taxes, assessments, and governmental charges or fees whether federal, state, county or municipal, and whether they be by taxing districts or authorities presently taxing or by others, subsequently created or otherwise, and any other taxes and assessments (including non-governmental assessments for common charges under a restrictive covenant or other private agreement that are not treated as part of Common Area Maintenance Costs) now or hereafter attributable to the Project (or its operation), excluding, however, penalties and interest thereon and federal and state taxes on income (if the present method of taxation changes so that in lieu of or in addition to the whole or any part of any Taxes, there is levied on Landlord a capital tax directly on the rents received therefrom or a franchise tax, assessment, or charge based, in whole or in part, upon such rents for the Project, then all such taxes, assessments, or charges, or the part thereof so based, shall be deemed to be included within the term “Taxes” for purposes hereof). Taxes shall include the costs of consultants retained in an effort to lower taxes and all costs incurred in disputing any taxes or in seeking to lower the tax valuation of the Project. Taxes shall also include any assessment, tax, fee, levy or charge in addition to, or in substitution, partially or totally, of any assessment, tax, fee, levy or charge previously included within the definition of real property tax, it being acknowledged by Tenant and Landlord that Proposition 13 was adopted by the voters of the State of California in the June 1978 election (“Proposition 13”) and that assessments, taxes, fees, levies and charges may be imposed by governmental agencies for such services as fire protection, street, sidewalk and road maintenance, conservation, refuse removal and for other governmental services formerly provided without charge to property owners or occupants, and, in further recognition of the decrease in the level and quality of governmental services and amenities as a result of Proposition 13, Taxes shall also include any governmental or private assessments or the Building’s or Project’s contribution towards a governmental or private cost-sharing agreement for the purpose of augmenting or improving the quality of services and amenities normally provided by governmental agencies. It is the intention of Tenant and Landlord that all such new and increased assessments, taxes, fees, levies, and charges and
all similar assessments, taxes, fees, levies and charges be included within the definition of Taxes for purposes of this Lease. If Landlord receives a refund of Taxes, or a credit against its future Taxes, for any calendar year, Landlord shall either pay to Tenant, or credit against subsequent payments of Rent due hereunder, an amount equal to Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the refund, net of any reasonable expenses incurred by Landlord in achieving such refund; provided, however, if this Lease shall have expired or is otherwise terminated, Landlord shall refund in cash any such refund or credit due to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of such refund or its receipt of such credit against future Taxes. Landlord’s obligation to so refund to Tenant any such refund or credit of Taxes shall survive such expiration or termination. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, as Additional Rent, upon demand for any and all taxes required to be paid by Landlord, excluding state, local and federal personal or corporate income taxes measured by the net income of Landlord from all sources and estate and inheritance taxes, whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties hereto, when: (a) said taxes are measured by or reasonably attributable to the cost or value of Tenant’s equipment, furniture, fixtures and other personal property located in the Premises, or by the cost or value of any leasehold improvements made in or to the Premises by or for Tenant, including the Tenant Improvements, to the extent the cost or value of such leasehold improvements exceeds the cost or value of a building standard build out as determined by Landlord regardless of whether title to such improvements shall be vested in Tenant or Landlord; (b) said taxes are assessed upon or with respect to the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any portion of the Project used by Tenant in connection with this Lease; or (c) said taxes are assessed upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring an interest or an estate in the Premises.
5. Insurance. Tenant shall pay Tenant’s Proportionate Share of the cost of all Insurance for the Project for each year and partial year falling within the Term. Tenant shall pay Tenant’s Proportionate Share of Insurance in the same manner as provided above for Tenant’s Proportionate Share of Common Area Maintenance Costs. “Insurance” shall mean property, liability and other insurance coverages carried by Landlord, including without limitation 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. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if and to the extent that Landlord incurs a deductible payment under any policy of earthquake insurance which deductible payment is in excess of Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00), then each payment shall, for the purposes of inclusion in this Section 5, be treated in the same manner as a Permitted Capital Expenditure, with a useful life of ten (10) years.
6. Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement. By April 1 of each calendar year, or as soon thereafter as practicable, Landlord shall furnish to Tenant a statement of Common Area Maintenance Costs, Utilities, Taxes, and Insurance for the Project for the previous year, adjusted as provided in Section 6 of this Exhibit (the “Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement”). If Tenant’s estimated payments of Common Area Maintenance or Utilities or Taxes or Insurance for the Project under this Exhibit C for the year covered by the Common Area Maintenance Costs, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement exceed Tenant’s share of such items
as indicated in the Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement, then Landlord shall promptly credit or reimburse Tenant for such excess; likewise, if Tenant’s estimated payments of Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Taxes and Insurance under this Exhibit C for such year are less than Tenant’s share of such items as indicated in the Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement, then Tenant shall promptly pay Landlord such deficiency, notwithstanding that the Term has expired and Tenant has vacated the Premises.
Within one hundred eighty (180) days after receipt of a Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement by Tenant, if Tenant desires to review Landlord’s books and records regarding the amount of Additional Rent set forth in the Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement, a reputable certified public accountant (which accountant has had previous experience in reviewing financial operating records of landlords of office buildings; provided that such accountant is not retained by Tenant on a contingency fee basis), designated and paid for by Tenant, may, after reasonable notice to Landlord and at reasonable times, inspect Landlord’s records at Landlord’s offices, provided that no Event of Default on the part of Tenant then exists. In connection with such inspection, Tenant and Tenant’s agents must agree in advance to abide by Landlord’s reasonable rules and procedures regarding inspections of Landlord’s records, and shall execute a commercially reasonable confidentiality agreement regarding such inspection. Tenant’s failure to so elect to review Landlord’s books and records within one hundred eighty (180) days of Tenant’s receipt of such Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement shall be deemed to be Tenant’s approval of such Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement and Tenant, thereafter, waives the right or ability to dispute the amounts set forth in such Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement. If after such inspection, Tenant disputes such Additional Rent, a certification as to the proper amount shall be made, at Tenant’s expense, by an independent certified public accountant (the “Accountant”) selected by Landlord and subject to Tenant’s reasonable approval; provided that if such certification by the Accountant proves that Common Area Maintenance, Utilities, Tax and Insurance Statement were overstated by more than five percent (5%) in aggregate, then the cost of the Accountant (as well as the cost of Tenant’s initial review) and the cost of such certification (up to five thousand dollars ($5,000.00)) shall be paid for by Landlord. In no event shall this Section 5 be deemed to allow any review of any Landlord’s records by any subtenant of Tenant (approved by Landlord). Tenant agrees that this Section 5 shall be the sole method to be used by Tenant to dispute the amount of any Additional Rent payable or not payable by Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Lease, and Tenant hereby waives any other rights at law or in equity relating thereto.
7. Gross-Up. With respect to any calendar year or partial calendar year in which the Project 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 portion of Common Area Maintenance Costs for such period which vary by occupancy 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.

1.1 Tenant shall be entitled to a Tenant improvement allowance (the “Tenant Improvement Allowance”) in the amount of $100.00 per RSF, for a total of $10,032,800.00, for costs relating to the initial design, permitting, project management and construction of improvements to the Building (the “Tenant Improvements”). In no event shall Landlord be obligated to pay a total amount which exceeds the Tenant Improvement Allowance.
1.2 Tenant shall utilize not less than $50.00 per rentable square foot of the Tenant Improvement Allowance and/or Tenant’s funds on each floor of the Building.

2.1 Payment of (i) the fees of consultants retained in connection with the design, engineering and construction of the Tenant Improvements, (ii) the payment of plan check, permit and license fees relating to construction of the Tenant Improvements and other permitting costs, and (iii) any other reasonable hard or soft costs related to the design, engineering and construction of the Tenant Improvements;
2.2 Payment of the reasonable fees incurred by, and the cost of documents and materials supplied by, Landlord and Landlord’s consultants in connection with the preparation and review of the Construction Drawings (defined below);
2.3 The cost of construction of the Tenant Improvements, including, contractors’ fees and general conditions;

2.5 The cost of any changes to the Construction Drawings or Tenant Improvements required by Applicable Laws; and
2.6 The cost of any Landlord-approved Tenant change items.
For avoidance of doubt, Tenant shall not be responsible for paying Landlord or any affiliate or contractor of Landlord, nor shall the Tenant Improvement Allowance be deducted or reduce to account for, a construction management or construction supervision fee in connection with the Tenant Improvements.
Landlord shall pay installments of the Tenant Improvement Allowance periodically as design and construction is carried out within thirty (30) days after receipt by Landlord of (a) an itemized statement of Tenant Improvement expenses, accompanied by reasonably detailed invoices and other supporting information as is reasonably requested by Landlord or its consultants engaged to review and evaluate such payment requests which adequately describe the work performed and the materials provided which are the basis for the requested installment payment hereunder, (b) conditional lien releases upon progress
payment, except for disbursements made on account of retainage or the final 5% of the Tenant Improvement Allowance (the “Retainage”) for which conditional lien releases upon final payment shall be required, in the form required under California Civil Code Section 3262 from all contractors, subcontractors, and materialmen who shall have furnished materials or supplies or performed work or services in connection with the Tenant Improvements and who will be paid from the applicable installment, and (c) unconditional releases upon progress payment or unconditional releases upon final payment, as applicable, in the form required under California Civil Code Section 3262 from all contractors, subcontractors, and materialmen with respect to whom Landlord previously disbursed funds to Tenant.

Landlord shall not have any obligation to pay the Tenant Improvement Allowance (a) for so long as a Default by Tenant exists, (b) if a lien has been filed with respect to the Tenant Improvements that has not been released or bonded over within ten (10) business days following notice of such lien to Tenant, (c) if Tenant is in violation of the terms of the applicable permits for the Tenant Improvements, or (d) if the insurance required under this Lease is not in full force and effect. Any portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance not drawn or requested to be paid by Tenant by December 31, 2020 (the “Outside Allowance Date”) shall be forfeited, provided, however, that the Outside Allowance Date shall be delayed on a day-for-day basis for each day that Tenant Improvements are delayed due to Landlord Delay or by events of force majeure, and provided that Tenant notifies Landlord promptly of any such force majeure event).
If Landlord, in good faith, disputes any item in a request for payment and delivers a written objection to such item setting forth with reasonable particularity Landlord’s reasons for its dispute (a “Draw Dispute Notice”) within ten (10) business days following Landlord’s receipt of such draw request, Landlord may deduct the amount of such disputed item from the payment. Landlord and Tenant shall, in good faith, endeavor to resolve any such dispute with diligence and dispatch. Landlord’s payment of such amounts shall not be deemed Landlord’s approval or acceptance of the work furnished or materials supplied as set forth in Tenant’s payment request.
If and to the extent that Landlord fails to fund any monthly disbursement of the Allowance within thirty (30) days following Landlord’s receipt of a draw request (subject to Landlord’s right to deduct amounts specified in a timely Draw Dispute Notice), Tenant shall be entitled to fund the amount set forth in Tenant’s draw request and deduct that portion of the same which exceeds the amount duly disputed in the Draw Dispute Notice from Rent next due and payable by Tenant under the Lease, provided that Tenant will concurrently deliver notice to Landlord of the amount so funded by Tenant and provided further that in no event will Tenant be entitled to offset more than fifty percent (50%) of the Base Rent payable in any calendar month. If and to the extent that Landlord timely delivers any Draw Dispute Notice, Landlord shall nevertheless be obligated to fund the portion of such draw request, if any, which Landlord has not duly disputed, and Tenant shall only be entitled to fund the undisputed amount of such draw request to the extent Landlord fails to so fund such amount. If Tenant commences to offset unfunded draw amounts, Landlord shall have the right, at any time, to pay to Tenant all or any portion of the then-unfunded amount, in which event Tenant shall have no further right to continue such offset with respect to the amount so paid.

The final space plan (the “Final Space Plan”) shall include a layout and designation of all offices, rooms and other partitioning, their intended use, and equipment to be contained therein. Landlord may request, to the extent reasonable, clarification for special use items not included in the Final Space Plan. Landlord shall advise Tenant within five (5) business days after Landlord’s receipt of the Final Space Plan for the Building if the same is approved or disapproved; provided, however, Landlord may not unreasonably withhold its consent. If Tenant is so advised, Tenant shall cause the Final Space Plan to be revised to correct any deficiencies or other matters Landlord may reasonably require, in such event, the scope of Landlord’s review of such revised Final Space Plan will be limited to Tenant’s correction of the items noted in Landlord’s notice of disbursement.

Tenant shall supply Landlord via electronic mail one (1) CADD format copy of such Final Working Drawings. Landlord shall advise Tenant within five (5) business days after Landlord’s receipt of the Final Working Drawings for the Building if the same is approved or disapproved; Landlord’s approval will not be unreasonably withheld.

Tenant shall obtain approval of the Final Working Drawings prior to submission of the same to the appropriate municipal authorities for all applicable building permits. Tenant hereby agrees that neither Landlord nor Landlord’s consultants shall be responsible for obtaining any building permit or certificate of occupancy for the Building and that obtaining the same shall be Tenant’s responsibility; provided, however, that Landlord shall cooperate with Tenant in executing permit applications and performing other ministerial acts reasonably necessary to enable Tenant to obtain any such permit or certificate of occupancy.
3.5 Notwithstanding the procedures set forth in Sections 3.3 and 3.4 above, Landlord acknowledges that Tenant may elect to use plans and drawings prepared by Architect for the purpose of retaining so-called design-build subcontractors (the "Design-Build Subcontractors") for the design (including preparation of plans and working drawings) and completion of some or all of the Tenant Improvements in which event Landlord shall have the right to review and approve the scope and design of all improvements proposed to be performed by the Design-Build Subcontractors. All third party costs incurred by Landlord in connection with Landlord's review of the scope and design of improvements proposed to be performed by the Design-Build Subcontractors shall be at Tenant's cost and may be deducted from the Tenant Improvement Allowance.
3.6 No material changes, modifications or alterations in the Approved Working Drawings, other than de minimis changes, modifications or alterations, may be made without

Executed as of ________________________, 20__.
Provided that an uncured Event of Default does not exist at the time of such election and at any time prior to the commencement of the extended Term and Tenant is as of the date of Tenant’s delivery of Tenant’s Election Notice, then occupying at least seventy percent (70%) of the Premises at the time of such election, Tenant may renew the Term for one (1) additional period of seven (7) years, by delivering written notice of the exercise thereof to Landlord not earlier than fifteen (15) months nor later than twelve (12) months before the expiration of the then-current Term (“Tenant’s Election Notice”). The Base Rent payable for each month during such extended Term shall be equal to the prevailing rental rate with annual escalations (the “Prevailing Rental Rate”), at the commencement of such extended Term, for leases of space in comparable buildings located within South San Mateo County, California, of equivalent quality, size, utility and location (“Comparable Buildings” and such transactions, “Comparable Transactions”), with the length of the extended Term and the credit standing of Tenant to be taken into account; if such Comparable Buildings, or comparable space within Comparable Buildings or Comparable Transactions are not available, adjustments shall be made in the determination to reflect the age and quality of the Building and Premises as contrasted to other buildings and transactions used for comparison purposes, taking into consideration size, location, proposed term of the lease, extent of services to be provided, the time that the particular rate under consideration became or is to become effective, as well as all then-relevant concessions and inducements including, if applicable, the following concessions: (i) the amount of protection received by tenants in connection with the payment of operating expenses and taxes (i.e., base year or expense stop, if any), (ii) rental abatement concessions being given such tenants, if any, (iii) improvement allowances and the value of tenant improvement work provided or to be provided for such comparable space, (iv) all other inducements and concessions and payments, if any, being granted such tenants in connection with such comparable space. Additionally, in any determination of space within Comparable Buildings and/or Comparable Transactions, appropriate consideration shall be given to the annual rental rates per rentable square foot, the standard of measurement by which the rentable square footage is measured, and the ratio of rentable square feet to usable square feet. The intent of the parties is that Tenant will obtain the same rent and other economic benefits that landlords would otherwise give in Comparable Transactions and that Landlord will make and receive the same economic payments and concessions that landlords would otherwise make and receive in Comparable Transactions. Within fifteen (15) days after receipt of Tenant’s Election Notice, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant written notice of the Prevailing Rental Rate and shall advise Tenant of the required adjustment to Base Rent, if any, and the other terms and conditions offered. Tenant shall, within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of Landlord’s notice, notify Landlord in writing whether Tenant accepts or rejects Landlord’s determination of the Prevailing Rental Rate. If Tenant timely notifies Landlord that Tenant accepts Landlord’s determination of the Prevailing Rental Rate, then, on or before the commencement date of the extended Term, Landlord and Tenant shall execute an amendment to this Lease extending the Term on the same terms provided in this Lease, except as follows:
(a) Base Rent shall be adjusted to the Prevailing Rental Rate with annual escalations;
(b) Tenant shall have no further renewal option unless expressly granted by Landlord in writing; and
(c) Landlord shall lease to Tenant the Premises in their then-current condition, and Landlord shall not provide to Tenant any allowances (e.g., moving allowance, construction allowance, and the like) or other tenant inducements.
If Tenant notifies Landlord that Tenant rejects Landlord’s determination of the Prevailing Rental Rate, Landlord and Tenant shall, thereafter, in good faith, diligently work to reach agreement as to the applicable Prevailing Rental Rate for the next-succeeding thirty (30) days (the “Negotiation Period”). As of the date of expiration of the Negotiation Period, Landlord and Tenant have not agreed in writing as to the amount of the Base Rent, the parties shall determine the projected Prevailing Rental Rate in accordance with the following procedure (which procedure is herein referred to as the “Three-Appraiser Method”). Landlord and Tenant shall each appoint one (1) real estate appraiser, and the two (2) so appointed shall select a third. Said real estate appraisers shall each be licensed in the state in which the Premises is located, specializing in the field of commercial real estate rental in South San Mateo County, California, having no less than ten (10) years’ experience in such field, unaffiliated with either Landlord or Tenant and recognized as ethical and reputable within their field. Landlord and Tenant agree to make their appointments promptly within ten (10) days after expiration of the Negotiation Period, or sooner if mutually agreed upon. The two (2) appraisers selected by Landlord and Tenant shall promptly select a third appraiser within fifteen (15) days after they both have been appointed, and each appraiser, within fifteen (15) days after the third appraiser is selected, shall submit his or her determination of the then projected Prevailing Rental Rate. The Prevailing Rental Rate shall be the mean of the two (2) closest rental determinations. If either Landlord or Tenant fails to appoint an appraiser within the time period specified in this paragraph, the appraiser appointed by one of them shall reach a decision, notify Landlord and Tenant thereof, and such appraiser’s decision shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. Each party shall pay the fees and expenses of the appraiser appointed by or on behalf of it, and each shall pay one-half of the fees and expenses of the third appraiser.
Tenant shall confirm Tenant’s acceptance of the determination of the Prevailing Rental Rate by executing (or making good faith corrective comments to) an amendment to this Lease memorializing the same within ten (10) Business Days of such determination (herein the “Extension Amendment”). Tenant’s failure to execute (or make comments to) and deliver the Extension Amendment to Landlord within such 10 Business Day period shall not otherwise rescind Tenant’s exercise of the option set forth herein.
Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing to the contrary, at Landlord’s option, and in addition to all of Landlord’s remedies under this Lease, at law or in equity, the right to extend the Term of this Lease hereinabove granted to Tenant shall not be deemed to be properly exercised if, as of the date Tenant exercises its extension right, an Event of Default on the part of Tenant exists. Further, Tenant’s rights under this Exhibit shall terminate if (1) this Lease or Tenant’s right to possession of the Premises is terminated, (2) Tenant fails to timely exercise its option under
this Exhibit, time being of the essence with respect to Tenant’s exercise thereof, or (3) Tenant assigns any of its interest in this Lease to any party other than a Permitted Transferee.
