                               GENERAL PROVISIONS

1.   TERM/POSSESSION
     ---------------

     1.1  Commencement of Term.  This Lease shall be binding on Tenant and Owner
          --------------------
when executed by Tenant and Owner (the "Effective Date").  The initial term (the
"Initial Term" and together with all subsequent renewals, modifications and
extensions thereof, the "Term") of this Lease as set forth in the Basic Lease
Provisions shall commence on the Effective Date.

     1.2  Possession.  Tenant shall be entitled to possession of the Premises
          ----------
upon the Effective Date.

2.   RENT
     ----

     2.1  Annual Base Rent.  Commencing on the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant
          ----------------
shall pay to Owner the Annual Base Rent specified in the Basic Lease Provisions,
in equal monthly installments on the first (1st) day of each calendar month, in
advance.  Rent for any period less than a full calendar month shall be pro
rated.

     2.2  Additional Rent.  Owner shall pay all of the Building Operating
          ---------------
Expenses (defined below). The Building Operating Expenses for the calendar year
2000, adjusted for a full year shall be the Base Year Building Operating
Expenses. The Building Operating Expenses for the Base Year and subseqent years
will include those operating expenses that would have been paid or incurred by
Owner had the Building been ninety-five percent (95%) rented and occupied.
During periods of vacancy, the Premises Percentage will be grossed up from
actual to adjusted as noted under paragraph 5 of the Basic Lease provision;
however, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Owner shall
not be entitled to collect more than one hundred percent (100%) of the Building
Operating Expenses. The Building Operating Expenses for the Base Year include
fixed expense stops for certain expenses as follows: (i) electricity and gas at
$.90 per square foot; (ii) real property taxes at $1.20 per square foot; and
(iii) janitorial services at $.70 per square foot (collectively, the "Base Year
Operating Expense Pass-Throughs"). Tenant shall pay to Owner as "Additional
Rent" Tenant's Premises Percentage of any excess of the actual costs of the Base
year Operating Expense Pass-Throughs over the estimates of the Base Year
Operating Expense Pass-Throughs. Following the first calendar year of the Term
(the "Base Year"), Tenant shall pay Owner as "Additional Rent", Tenant's
Premises Percentage of any increase in the Building Operating Expenses paid or
incurred by Owner in excess of the Building Operating Expenses for the Base
Year. All amounts payable by Tenant under this Section as Tenant's Premises
Percentage of the Building Operating Expenses may be estimated by Owner in
Owner's reasonable discretion, and shall be paid in equal monthly installments
in advance with the monthly payment of Annual Base Rent. Each calendar year by
March 31, Owner shall reconcile Tenant's payments of the Building Operating
Expenses for the previous year to reflect actual expenses for that period.
Tenant shall be given a credit against the next Building Operating Expenses
payment(s) due from Tenant or, if the Term of the Lease has expired, a refund,
for any overpayment. A copy of the reconciliation shall be furnished to Tenant
when completed. If the amount paid by Tenant for that year is less than Tenant's
Premises Percentage of the Building Operating Expenses, Tenant shall pay to
Owner the deficit by June 1 of that year. If the amount paid by Tenant for that
year is more than Tenant's Premises Percentage of the Building Operating
Expenses, Owner shall pay to Tenant the excess by June 1 of that year.
Appropriate adjustment shall be made for any period of less than one (1) full
year, and Tenant's obligation to pay any shortage or Owner's obligation to
refund any

Owner may expense in the current year such items or categories of items which
are less than $5,000 per year and may include the portion of capital
expenditures which would be includable in the current year if such expenditures
were amortized over the normal useful life of such repairs or replacements which

          2.2.3  Disproportional Utility Charges.  The Owner and Tenant shall
                 -------------------------------
each have the right to perform energy audits and/or separately meter or measure
the Tenant's usage and consumption of the utilities and services described
above.  If the Tenant uses or consumes a disproportionate amount of such
utilities and/or services due to the nature of the Tenant's use of the Premises,
or the use by the Tenant of the Premises beyond the normal operating hours for
the Building, the Tenant shall be obligated to pay to the Owner the additional
Building Operating Expenses resulting therefrom.  Owner and Tenant agree that
the energy usage in the Lynx building shall serve as a standard of comparison
for energy audits under this Section.  If Tenant pays for any of its utilities
directly, Tenant's Premises Percentage of the Building Operating Expenses shall
be adjusted to reflect that such utility costs are directly paid by Tenant.

          2.2.4  Services Performed By Affiliates.  Owner represents and
                 --------------------------------
warrants that the charges for any services provided by affiliates, related or

shall be reasonable, customary and competitive with charges for similar services
of independent contractors in the area where the Building is located.

          2.2.5  Right to Audit.  Tenant shall have the right, but not more than
                 --------------

entitled to offset such excess against payments becoming due as additional rent.

shall be obligated to pay Tenant's costs associated with such audit, which shall
not exceed Two Thousand Five Hundred and No/100ths Dollars ($2,500.00).  If the
audit does not disclose a discrepancy in excess of three percent (3%), Tenant
shall be obligated to pay Owner's costs associated with such audit, which shall

          2.2.8  Income Applied to Building Operating Expenses.  Any income
                 ---------------------------------------------
received by Owner from other tenants of the Building or any other source in
connection with the use or operation of the Common Areas (as opposed to Building
Operating Expense payments from other tenants, or rent for other premises), less
Owner's expenses in connection therewith, shall be applied to and reduce the
Building Operating Expenses prior to determining Tenant's proportionate share.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, de minimus income
received by Owner for the location of courier service delivery/pick-up
receptacles (such as Federal Express drop boxes), vending machines or similar
amenities shall be excluded from this Section.

          2.2.9  Janitorial Service.  Notwithstanding anything to the
                 ------------------
contrary contained in this Lease, Tenant may, at its sole option, elect to
directly provide for janitorial service for the Premises at its sole cost. If

Tenant's Premises Percentage of the Building Operating Expenses shall be
adjusted to reflect that such janitorial service costs are paid directly by
Tenant.

     2.3.  ADA Compliance.  In the event that Owner is required to alter,

regulations promulgated thereunder, as a result of any alteration or addition to

or regulations applicable to any special uses of Tenant or the special needs of
Tenant's employees or customers, the costs of the alterations, renovations
and/or improvements to the Premises (and Tenant's Premises Percentage of such
costs for the Common Area) which are required to comply with the ADA (the "ADA
Renovation Costs") shall be reimbursed to Owner by Tenant as Additional Rent.
Tenant's reimbursement of the ADA Renovation Costs for renovations to the Common
Area, and areas of the Premises which would constitute general building
improvements and which have not been specially improved for Tenant's use or
requirements (for example, a cafeteria or areas with raised floors), shall be
subject to amortization of such costs over the useful life of the alterations,
renovations and/or improvements.

     2.4  Late Charges.  Tenant acknowledges that the late payment of Rent to
          ------------
Owner will cause Owner to incur unanticipated costs, the exact amount of which
Owner cannot determine.  Accordingly, if any monthly installment of the Base
Rent, Additional Rent, or other sum payable by Tenant is not received by Owner
within ten (10) days after its due date, Tenant shall pay to Owner a late charge
equal to five percent (5%) of such overdue sums for each occurrence.

     2.5  Interest on Past Due Amounts.  In addition to any late charges, any
          ----------------------------
sums (including Rent) payable by Tenant to Owner under the terms of this Lease
which shall be past due for a period of thirty (30) or more days, shall bear
interest from the due date at twelve percent (12%) per annum.

     5.   TENANT IMPROVEMENT ALLOWANCE
          ----------------------------

     Owner agrees to provide Tenant with a cash allowance of Five Hundred
Thirty-One Thousand Two Hundred and No/100ths Dollars ($531,200.00) based on
Twenty-Five and No/100ths Dollars ($25.00) per square foot of Useable Area in
the Premises ("Tenant's Cash Allowance") for the construction of these
improvements set forth in Exhibit B.  Owner agrees that Tenant's Cash Allowance
shall be due and payable within thirty (30) days following Tenant's delivery to
Owner of a certificate of occupancy (or its equivalent) for the Premises and
properly executed lien waiver forms from each of the contractors performing more
than Ten Thousand and No/100ths Dollars ($10,000.00) of Tenant's work.  If Owner
fails to pay Tenant's Cash Allowance as set forth above, then in addition to all

quotient of the unpaid Tenant's Cash Allowance together with Accrued Interest
(hereinafter defined) divided by the per diem Base Annual Rent and Additional

Thousand and No/100ths Dollars ($10,000.00) and the per diem Base Annual Rent
and Additional Rent is equal to Five Hundred and No/100ths Dollars ($500.00),

divided by $500.00 is equal to 20).  For purposes hereof, the term "Accrued
Interest" shall mean interest on the unpaid portion of Tenant's Cash Allowance
at a rate equal to the lesser of  (a) the maximum rate permitted by law, or (b)
twelve percent (12%) from the date Tenant's Cash Allowance was required to be
paid by Owner.

its rent or terminate its lease, (ii) be in breach of any law, rule, regulation,

necessary changes to comply with the requirements of insurers, the providing
utility company and any governmental authorities having jurisdiction thereof.

(including any renewals thereof) are not subject to the provisions of this
Section 6.2. If Owner violates this Section, Tenant may after providing Owner

such default, in addition to any other remedies provided herein or available
under law or equity, elect to terminate this Lease in its sole discretion.

In the event of a taking which permanently reduces the floor area of the
Premises, the Annual Base Rent shall be proportionately reduced for the
remainder of the Term of this Lease and Tenant's Premises Percentage shall be
recalculated by dividing the reduced square footage of the Premises by the total
reduced Building rentable area.

     15.     ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
             -------------------------

     Tenant may assign this Lease or sublet the whole or any part of the
Premises.  If Tenant assigns this Lease or sublets the Premises, Tenant shall
remain liable to Owner for the full performance of Tenant's obligations

     16.     SUBORDINATION AND FINANCING
             ---------------------------

     Tenant agrees that at all times this Lease and Tenant's leasehold estate
created hereby shall be subordinate to the lien of any mortgage, deed of trust
or other encumbrance, together with any renewals, extensions or replacements
thereof, now or hereafter placed against Owner's interest in the Building or the
Premises.  Upon the request of Owner, Tenant agrees to execute and deliver such
documents as may be required to effectuate such subordination. Subordination of
Tenant's interest under this Lease shall be on the express condition that any
holder of a mortgage, trust deed or other encumbrance to which this Lease or
Tenant's leasehold estate created by this Lease which is to be subordinated
agrees to provide Tenant with a non-disturbance and attornment agreement by
which it will recognize and be bound by the terms of this Lease so long as
Tenant is not in material default under this Lease. In the event Tenant shall
fail, neglect or refuse to execute and deliver any such document within thirty
(30) days after receipt by Tenant of the document(s) to be executed by Tenant to
effect such subordination, such failure shall be a material default of Tenant's
obligations under this Lease. If the Building is subject to any mortgage, deed
or trust or ground lease, then promptly after the execution hereof, Landlord
will deliver to Tenant a non-disturbance and attornment agreement in reasonable
and customary form from the holder of any such mortgage, deed of trust or ground
lease.

     17.    DEFAULT; REMEDIES
            -----------------

     17.1   Events of Default.  The occurrence of any of the following events
            -----------------
shall constitute a material default and breach of this Lease ("Event of
Default") by Tenant:

          (i)    Tenant fails to pay any installment of Rent within ten (10)
                 days following its due date without the requirement of written
                 notice of demand;

          (ii)   Tenant fails to pay any other sum payable under this Lease
                 within twenty (20) days after written demand therefore is
                 delivered to Tenant unless a greater period for payment is
                 expressly provided herein;

          (iii)  The default by Tenant in the performance of any of Tenant's
                 covenants, agreement or obligations hereunder (excluding a
                 default in the payment of Rent or other monies due) which
                 continues for thirty (30) days after written notice thereof is
                 delivered to Tenant by Owner, or in the event the alleged
                 default cannot be cured within a thirty (30) day period, to
                 commence cure of the Event of Default and proceed diligently to
                 cure such Event of Default;

          (iv)   A general assignment by Tenant for the benefit of creditors;

          (v)    The filing of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy by Tenant, the
                 filing of a voluntary petition for an arrangement, or the
                 filing of a voluntary or involuntary petition for
                 reorganization or the filing of an involuntary petition by
                 Tenant's creditors which remains undischarged for a period of
                 sixty (60) days; or

          (vi)   Tenant is the subject of a receivership, attachment or other
                 judicial seizure of substantially all of Tenant's assets on the
                 Premises, such attachment or other seizure remaining
                 undismissed or undischarged for a period of sixty (60) days
                 after the levy thereon.

     17.2   Owner's Remedies.  In the event of an Event of Default by Tenant,
            ----------------
Owner shall have all rights and remedies available at law or in equity.  The
rights, privileges, elections and remedies of Owner set forth in this Lease or
allowed by law or equity are cumulative and the enforcement by Owner of a
specific remedy shall not constitute an election of remedies and/or a waiver of
other available remedies.  In the event of a material default, Owner's remedies
shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

          (i)    Terminate this Lease by written notice on the earliest date
                 permitted by law or on any later date specified in such notice,
                 in which case Tenant's right to possession of the Premises will
                 cease and this Lease will be terminated, except as to Tenant's
                 liability;

          (ii)   Without further demand or notice, reenter and take possession
                 of the Premises, repossess the same, expel Tenant and those
                 claiming through or under Tenant, and remove the effects of
                 both or either, without being liable for prosecution, damage or
                 otherwise and without being deemed guilty of any manner of
                 trespass, and without prejudice to any remedies for arrears of
                 Rent or other amounts payable under this Lease or as a


OFFICE LEASE AGREEMENT - 15
Drafted: January 6, 2000
<PAGE>

               result of any preceding Event of Default;

        (iii)  Without further demand or notice, cure any Event of Default, and
               charge Tenant as additional rent the cost of effecting such cure,
               including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and
               interest on the amount so advanced at the lesser of twelve
               percent (12%) per annum or the highest interest rate allowed by
               applicable law, provided that Owner will have no obligation to
               cure any such default of Tenant;

        (iv)   Bring suit or suits for the recovery of any damages, or for a sum
               equal to any installment or installments of Rent or other charges
               payable under this Lease. Additionally, if Tenant shall be in
               default of its obligations to pay installments of Annual Base
               Rent or other changes hereunder for more than ninety (90) days
               beyond any cure period provided in this Lease, then Owner shall
               have the right to recover from Tenant (in addition to past due
               Rent and other sums then owing) the total amount of Annual Base
               Rent which would be payable over the then remaining term of the
               Lease. Such amount shall be increased by the amount of Building
               Operating Expenses provided for in Section 2.2 of this Lease for
               each month then remaining in the term of this Lease, but shall be
               reduced by the amount of Building Operating Expenses which Tenant
               proves could reasonably be avoided by Tenant's vacancy. Such
               amount shall also be decreased by the amount of rental loss that
               Tenant proves could reasonably be avoided or mitigated by Owner.
               Nothing herein shall be construed as waiving Owner's obligation
               to mitigate damages from Tenant's default.

     Should Owner elect to reenter as provided in Section 17.2(ii) or should
Owner take possession pursuant to legal proceedings or pursuant to any notice
provided by law, Owner may, from time to time, without terminating this Lease,
relet the Premises or any part of the Premises in Owner's or Tenant's name, but
for the account of Tenant, for such term or terms (which may be greater or less
than the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the Term)
and upon such commercially reasonable conditions and terms as Owner may so
choose.  No such reentry or taking possession of the Premises by Owner will be
construed as an election on Owner's part to terminate this Lease unless a
written notice of such intention is given to Tenant.  No written notice from
Owner under this Section or under a forcible or unlawful entry and detainer
statute or similar law will constitute an election by Owner to terminate this
Lease unless such notice specifically so states.  Owner reserves the right
following any such reentry or reletting to exercise its right to terminate this
Lease by giving Tenant such written notice, in which event this Lease will
terminate as specified in such notice.

     17.3  Certain Damages.  In the event that Owner does not elect to
           ---------------
terminate this Lease and takes possession, Tenant will pay to Owner monthly Rent
and other sums as provided in this Lease that would be payable under this Lease
if such repossession had not occurred, less the net proceeds, if any, of any
reletting of the Premises after deducting Owner's reasonable expenses in
connection with such reletting, including reasonable repossession costs,
brokerage commissions, attorneys' fees and repair costs.  Tenant will pay such
Rent and other sums to Owner monthly on the day on which the monthly Rent would
have been payable under this Lease if possession had not been retaken.


OFFICE LEASE AGREEMENT - 16
Drafted: January 6, 2000
<PAGE>

     17.4  Remedies.  Any suit or suits for the recovery of the amounts and
           --------
damages set forth above may be brought by Owner, from time to time, at Owner's
election, and nothing in this Lease will be deemed to require Owner to await the
date upon which this Lease or the Term would have expired had there occurred no
Event of Default.

     17.5  Owner's Default.  In the event of any default by Owner under this
           ---------------
Lease, Tenant will deliver to Owner written notice listing the reasons for
Owner's default and Owner will have twenty (20) days following receipt of such
notice to cure such alleged default or, in the event the default cannot
reasonably be cured within a twenty (20) day period, to commence action and
proceed diligently to cure such alleged default.  In the event of an uncured
Owner default, Tenant may elect to terminate this Lease, in addition to any and
all remedies available at law or in equity.

     18.   SURRENDER OF PREMISES
           ---------------------

     Tenant shall provide Owner with written notice of Tenant's intention to
surrender the Premises at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of this
Lease. Within thirty (30) days of receipt of said notice, Owner shall evaluate
the reusability of the Premises and provide Tenant with written notice of those
items of the Tenant Improvements described in Exhibit B which Owner desires to
be removed from the Premises. During the next sixty (60) days after Owner's
notice, but in any event prior to the expiration of the Lease, Owner and Tenant
shall agree in writing upon plans and establish costs to restore the Premises to
the Building's standard conditions as set forth in Exhibit A-2, and Tenant shall
use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all governmental permits, licenses
and approvals necessary for the restoration of the Premises. Following
expiration of this Lease, Tenant shall have a maximum of sixty (60) days to
remove Tenant's Property and those Tenant Improvements identified by Owner and
restore the Premises to the Building's standard condition and configuration as
set forth in Exhibit A-2, during which period Tenant shall not be obligated to
pay Rent or any other charges hereunder.
     19.   ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE
           --------------------

     Tenant and Owner shall, at any time within thirty (30) days' after delivery
of written notice by the other party, execute, acknowledge and deliver to the
requesting party a statement in writing (i) certifying that this Lease is
unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of
such modification and certifying that this Lease, as so modified, is in full
force and effect) and the date to which the Rent and other charges are paid in
advance, (ii) acknowledging that there are not, to the knowledge of the
responding party, any uncured defaults on the part of the requesting party
hereunder, or specifying such defaults if they are claimed, and (iii) containing
any other certifications, acknowledgments and representations as may be
reasonably requested by Owner or Tenant or the party for whose benefit such
estoppel certificate is requested.  Any prospective purchaser or encumbrance for
the Premises or the Building may conclusively rely upon any such statement.
Failure to deliver such statement within said time shall be conclusive that (a)
this Lease is in full force and effect, without modification, (b) there are no
uncured defaults in the requesting party's performance, (c) that not more than
an amount equal to one (1) month's installment of the Annual Base Rent has been
paid in advance, and (d) that such additional certifications, acknowledgments
and representations as are requested under subsection (iii), hereof, are valid,
true and correct.  If Owner desires to finance or refinance the Premises, Tenant
hereby agrees to deliver to any lender designated by Owner such financial
statements of Tenant as are publicly filed, or if Tenant does not publicly file
financial statements, Tenant shall deliver such financial


OFFICE LEASE AGREEMENT - 17
Drafted: January 6, 2000
<PAGE>

statements as may be reasonably requested by any lender designated by Owner;
provided, that Owner and its lender shall keep such financial information
confidential.

20.  MISCELLANEOUS
     -------------

     20.1   Owner's Right of Entry.  Upon twenty-four (24) hours notice, Owner
            ----------------------
and Owner's authorized representatives shall have the right to enter the
Premises at all reasonable times for the purposes of determining whether the
Premises are in good condition, to serve any notice required or allowed under
this Lease or to show the Premises to prospective brokers, agents, buyers or
tenants.

     20.2   Quiet Enjoyment.  Owner agrees that Tenant, upon paying the Rent and
            ---------------
other sums payable by Tenant under this Lease and performing the other
obligations of Tenant as set forth in this Lease, shall quietly have, hold and
enjoy the Premises during the Term hereof.

     20.3   No Waiver.  The failure of Owner or Tenant to seek redress for a
            ---------
breach of this Lease or to insist upon the strict performance of any covenant or
condition of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach or of any
future similar breach and the waiver by Owner or Tenant of any breach shall not
be deemed a waiver of any past, present or future breach of the same or any
other term, covenant or condition of this Lease.

     20.4   Notices.  Whenever any notice, approval, consent, request or
            -------
election is given or made pursuant to this Lease, it shall be deemed delivered
when it is in writing and personally delivered or deposited in the United States
mail, postage prepaid, certified or registered mail, return receipt requested
and addressed to the party at the address set forth in the Basic Lease
Provisions.  Either party may change the address for notices by notice pursuant
to this Section 20.4.

     20.5   Holding Over.  Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, if Tenant
            ------------
occupies the Premises or any part thereof after the expiration or earlier
termination of this Lease, whether with or against the consent of Owner, such
tenancy shall be month-to-month, and may be terminated at the end of any such
monthly period by not less than thirty (30) days' written notice by Owner to
Tenant.  During the first one hundred twenty days (120) from the expiration or
termination of the Lease of any holding over by Tenant, the Annual Base Rent
shall be equal to the Annual Base Rent in force and effect for the last month of
the Term prior to expiration or termination of this Lease.  Following this one
hundred twenty (120) day period, Annual Base Rent shall equal one hundred
twenty-five percent (125%) of the Annual Base Rent previously in force and
effect.  Such month-to-month tenancy shall be subject to every other term,
condition and agreement contained in this Lease, and no other terms or
conditions.

     20.6   Attorney's Fees and Costs.  In the event of any controversy, claim
            -------------------------
or action being filed or instituted between the parties to enforce the terms and
conditions of this Lease, or arising from the breach of any provision hereof,
the prevailing party will be entitled to receive from the other party all costs,
damages, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees including fees on
appeal and for bankruptcy proceedings, incurred by the prevailing party, whether
or not such controversy or claim is litigated or prosecuted to judgment.  The
prevailing party will be that party who was awarded judgment as a result of
trial or arbitration, or who receives a payment of money from the other party in
settlement of claims asserted by that party.

     20.7   Construction.  All parties have either (i) been represented by
            ------------
separate legal counsel, or (ii) have had the opportunity to be so represented.
Thus, in all cases, the language herein shall be construed simply and in
accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against a party,
regardless of which party prepared or caused the preparation of this Lease.

     20.8   Successors and Assigns.  This Lease shall be binding upon and shall
            ----------------------
inure to the benefit of the respective heirs, personal representatives,
successors and assigns of the parties.  Owner may assign this Lease to any
purchaser of the Building without consent of Tenant.  Tenant may only assign its
interest in this Lease in accordance with the provisions of Article 15 of this
Lease.

     20.9   Entire Agreement.  This Lease contains all covenants and agreements
            ----------------
between Owner and Tenant relating in any manner to the leasing, use and

same shall be valid or of any force or effect and the covenants and agreements
of this Lease shall not be altered, modified or added to except in writing
signed by Owner and Tenant.

     20.10  Severability.  If any term or provision of this Lease shall be
            ------------
determined by a court to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this
Lease shall not be affected thereby and each term and provision of this Lease
shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.  It is
the intention of the parties that if any provision in this Lease is capable of
two constructions, then the provision shall be interpreted to have the meaning
which renders it valid.

     20.11  Force Majeure.  Any prevention, delay or stoppage due to strikes,
            -------------
lockouts, labor disputes, court orders, acts of God, inability to obtain labor
or materials or reasonable substitutes thereof, government restrictions,
regulations or controls, hostile government actions, civil commotion, fire or
other casualty and other causes except for availability of funds, beyond the
reasonable control of the party obligated to perform shall excuse the
performance by such party for a period equal to any such prevention, delay or
stoppage.

     20.12  No Recording.  Neither party shall record this Lease or any
            ------------
memorandum hereof, it being agreed that Tenant's possession of the Premises
shall be adequate notice of Tenant's leasehold interest.

     20.13  Headings.  The article headings, title and captions used in this
            --------
Lease are for convenience only and are not part of this Lease.

     20.14  Exhibits.  All exhibits and appendices attached to this Lease are
            --------
incorporated into this Lease by this reference and become a part of this Lease
as if set forth in their entirety herein.

     20.15  Time.  Time is of the essence of this Lease.  Unless otherwise
            ----
expressly provided, the word "day" means "calendar day" in this Lease and the
computation of time shall include all Saturdays, Sundays and holidays for
purposes of determining the time periods in this Lease.

     20.16  Brokers.  Owner acknowledges that Tenant has retained Colliers
            -------
International as the broker for this Lease.  Owner agrees to pay Broker a fee of
three percent (3%) of the gross rent of the Initial Term only as set forth
herein, which fee shall be paid one-half


OFFICE LEASE AGREEMENT - 19
Drafted: January 6, 2000
<PAGE>

within ten (10) days of the execution of this Lease by Owner and Tenant and one-
half within ten (10) days of the Rent Commencement Date. If Tenant elects to
expand the Leased Premises as provided in Section 4, Owner agrees to pay Broker
a fee of three percent (3%) of the gross rent for such expansion space for the
initial term only of Tenant's rental of such space as long as Broker represents
Tenant as to this project.

     20.17  Accord and Satisfaction. No payment by Tenant, nor any writing
            -----------------------
accompanying any payment, shall be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Tenant
may make any payment without prejudice to Tenant's right to recover an
overpayment or to pursue any other remedy provided in this Lease or available by
law.

     20.18  Owner's Consent. Wherever in this Lease, Owner's consent, approval
            ---------------
or permission is required, such consent, approval or permission shall not be
unreasonably withheld or delayed. Whenever, pursuant to this Lease, Tenant is
required to pay estimated amounts to Owner, such estimates shall be reasonable.

     20.19  Reservation of Claims. Tenant shall have the right to reserve all
            ---------------------
claims against Owner, its successors and assigns arising prior to any transfer
of Owner's interest under this Lease.

     20.20  Agreements for the Benefit of Tenant's Lender. Owner hereby
            ---------------------------------------------
irrevocably waives and releases any Owner's lien which Owner now has, or in the
future may have, on Tenant's fixtures, furnishings, equipment, inventory and
other personal property located within the Premises, whether such lien arises by
statute, common law or otherwise. Owner agrees that Tenant may encumber its
fixtures, furnishings, equipment, inventory and other personal property, so long
as the same do not subject the Premises, the Building or other portion of either
to any lien. Owner hereby grants to any holder of a perfected security interest
in such property of Tenant (the "lienholder") access and a right of entry to the
Premises during normal business hours to permit such lienholder the right to
remove the property subject to its security interest from the Premises. Any such
lienholder shall be a third party beneficiary of this provision of this Lease.
Tenant and the lienholder shall be jointly and severally liable to repair any
damage to the Premises caused by the lienholder's removal of property subject to
its security interest.
