DELIVERY OF PREMISES TO TENANT BY LANDLORD Landlord agrees to cause the Premises to be completed in accordance with the plans, specifications and agreement approved by both parties and attached hereto as Exhibit "A" and made a part of this Lease ("Landlord's Work"). Landlord's Work required hereunder shall be completed at the cost and expense of Landlord unless otherwise specified herein. Landlord's Work shall be done with such minor variations as Landlord may deem advisable, so long as such variations do not materially interfere with Tenant's intended use of the Premises. "Substantial Completion" of the Premises, as used herein, shall occur when Landlord certifies in writing to Tenant that Landlord's Work required hereunder has been completed and the Premises are ready for occupancy, except for minor "punch list" or similar corrective work to be completed within a reasonable period of time by Landlord, and except for any work to be performed by Tenant. Other than for Landlord's Work, Landlord shall have no obligation for the completion of the Premises. Neither Landlord nor Landlord's agents have made any representations, warranties or promises with respect to the physical condition of the Building, the land upon which it is erected or the Premises, or any matter or thing affecting or related to the Premises except as herein expressly set forth. 3 <PAGE> The "Commencement Date" of this Lease shall be the later of Substantial Completion (as that term is defined herein) of the Premises or the Scheduled Commencement Date (as that term is defined in Section 2). Promptly following the Commencement Date, Landlord and Tenant shall execute an agreement (the "Agreement") acknowledging that Tenant has accepted possession and reciting the exact Commencement Date and Termination Date of the Lease. The Tenant, by taking possession of the Premises, shall be deemed to have agreed that the Premises are then in a satisfactory order, repair and condition, except as set forth on a list prepared by Landlord and Tenant prior to occupancy, and Tenant shall provide Landlord, upon request, a written acknowledgment of acceptance. If Tenant, for whatever reason, occupies the Premises prior to the Commencement Date, then all terms and conditions of this Lease shall apply to such occupancy, with the exception of Tenant's obligation to pay rental, which unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Landlord and Tenant, shall not commence until the Commencement Date. If Landlord, for any reason whatsoever, fails to deliver possession of Premises to Tenant on or before the Scheduled Commencement Date, this Lease shall not be void or voidable nor shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for any loss or damage resulting therefrom. Should the actual Commencement Date be later than the Scheduled Commencement Date, the Termination Date shall be extended by the same period as the Commencement Date is extended past the Scheduled Commencement Date, provided however, that if the Commencement Date shall occur on a date other than the first day of a month, rent for such month shall be prorated and the Termination Date shall occur on the last day of the calendar month in which the fifth anniversary of the Commencement Date occurs. The failure by either party, or both parties, to execute the Agreement shall not affect the rights or obligations of either party hereunder. Such Agreement, when so executed and delivered, shall be deemed to be apart of this Lease. "Substantial Completion" shall mean that date after which Landlord has completed Landlord's work at the Premises. Substantial Completion shall be deemed to have occurred notwithstanding a requirement to complete "punch list" or similar corrective work and notwithstanding that any work that is the responsibility of the Tenant may not be completed or operable. 6. USE OF PREMISES Tenant shall use the Premises only for business or professional office purposes and shall not use the Premises for any illegal purpose, or violate any statute, regulation, rule, or order of any governmental body, or create or allow to exist any nuisance, or trespass, or do any act in or about the Premises, or bring anything onto or in the Premises or the building containing same which will in any way increase the rate of insurance on the Premises or said building, deface or injure the Premises or such building, or overload the floor of the Premises. Tenant shall fully comply, at Tenant's sole expense, with the provisions of any and all local, state and Federal statutes, regulations, rules or orders, including any provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In the event that local, state or Federal government by legislative, administrative or judicial action shall in any legally enforceable manner by ordinance, act, statute, order, mandate, rule, regulation or otherwise require during the Term, any alteration of or improvement to any portion of the Premises, the Tenant shall comply fully with any such action and all such alterations shall be at the sole expense of the Tenant, and all such alterations shall become the property of Landlord and be surrendered with the Premises upon expiration of this Lease. 7. REPAIRS BY TENANT Tenant, during the Term of this Lease or any extension or renewal of this Lease, shall, at its sole cost and expense, make all repairs as shall be reasonably necessary to keep the Premises in good condition and repair, normal wear excepted. Tenant further agrees that all damage or injury of whatever nature done to the Premises by the Tenant or by any person in or upon the Premises except the Landlord, Landlord's agents, servants and employees, shall be repaired by Tenant at its sole cost and expense. 4 <PAGE> 8. IMPROVEMENTS, REPAIRS BY LANDLORD Landlord shall maintain the structural portions of the building, including the basic plumbing, air conditioning, heating and electrical systems installed in accordance with similar buildings in Atlanta, Georgia, but taking into consideration the age of the building, unless the condition requiring such maintenance is caused in part or in whole by the act, neglect, fault or omission of any duty by Tenant, its agents, servants, employees or invitees, in which case Tenant shall pay Landlord the reasonable cost of such maintenance or repairs. Except as provided herein, throughout the Term of this Lease or any renewal thereof, Landlord shall not otherwise be required to make any repairs or improvements to Premises, except repairs necessary for safety and tenantability and customary office building maintenance. 9. LANDLORD'S RIGHT TO ENTER PREMISES Landlord shall retain duplicate keys to all doors of the Premises. Tenant shall not change the locks on any entrance to the Premises. Upon Tenant's written request to Landlord, Landlord shall make a reasonable change of locks on behalf of Tenant at Tenant's sole cost and expense. Landlord and its agents, employees and independent contractors shall have the right to enter the premises at reasonable hours to make repairs, additions, alterations and improvements that are required by this Lease or are otherwise performed with Tenant's prior written consent, to exhibit the Premises to prospective purchasers, lenders or tenants but Landlord may enter to exhibit the Premises to prospective tenants only during the last twelve (12) months of the Term or following any event of default for as long as such event of default remains uncured, and to inspect the Premises to ascertain that Tenant is complying with all of its covenants and obligations hereunder. Landlord shall also have the right to enter the Premises at reasonable hours to install, maintain, repair and replace pipes, wires, cables, duct work, conduit and utility lines through hung ceiling space and column space within the Premises. Landlord agrees to use reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with Tenant's business caused by such entry. Landlord shall, except in case of emergency, afford Tenant such prior notification of an entry into the Premises as shall be reasonably practicable under the circumstances, for the purpose of exhibiting the Premises to a prospective purchaser or tenant. During such time as such work is being carried on in or about the Premises, payments provided herein shall not abate and Tenant waives any claim or cause of action against Landlord for damages by reason of interruption of Tenant's business or loss of profits therefrom because of the prosecution of any such work or any party hereof. 10. ALTERATIONS Tenant shall make no alterations or other improvements to the Premises without Landlord's prior written consent. Unless otherwise agreed, all such approved alterations and other improvements shall be made by Landlord at Tenant's sole expense and shall become the property of Landlord and be surrendered with the Premises upon the expiration of this Lease. Landlord may, at Landlord's option, require Tenant to remove any or all such alterations, improvements, decorations and furnishings and repair any damage to the Premises resulting from such alterations. In the event that local, state or Federal government by legislative, administrative or judicial action shall in any legally enforceable manner by ordinance, act, statute, order, mandate, rule, regulation or otherwise, require during the Term, any alteration of, or improvement to any portion of the building in which the Premises are located, excluding the Premises, determined by Landlord's Independent Accountants to be capital in nature based upon the application of generally accepted accounting principles ("Mandated Alterations"), then the annual rent per square foot shall be increased as follows: (a) Landlord's Independent Accountants shall amortize the cost of the Mandated Alterations over a period of not less than five (5) years in accordance with generally accepted accounting standards and allocate 5 <PAGE> the annual amortization of the cost to the net rentable area of the building in terms of annual cost per square foot of rentable area (the "Amortized Annual Cost"). (b) A portion of the Amortized Annual Cost shall be allocated to the Tenant based upon the proportion that the number of square feet of rentable area of the Premises bears to the number of square feet of rentable area of the building. (c) Effective on the first day of the month following notice from Landlord of the computation of the Amortized Annual Cost of the Mandated Alterations, the Base Rental above shall be increased by the Amortized Annual Cost, but not to exceed thirty cents ($0.30) per square foot multiplied by the rentable area of the Premises. The base monthly rent shall be increased by one-twelfth of such amount. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be obligated to contribute to the cost of any Mandated Alteration unless such Mandated Alteration is the result of the adoption of a new or changed ordinance, act,statute, order, mandate, rule or regulation or interpretation thereof not existing on the commencement date of this lease. 11. RELOCATION Upon ninety (90) days' written notice to Tenant, Landlord may substitute for the leased Premises other Premises in the building (the "New Premises") in which event the New Premise shall be deemed to be the leased Premises for all purposes hereunder, provided: (a) The New Premises shall be similar in area and appropriateness for Tenant's purposes. (b) Landlord shall, at Landlord's sole expense, conform the leasehold improvements in the New Premises as closely as practicable to the improvements then existing in the Premises. (c) Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for all out-of-pocket expenses directly resulting from such relocation, including reasonable moving expenses, but in no event shall Landlord be responsible for any interruption in Tenant's business caused by such relocation. (d) Within thirty (30) days of Landlord's request, Tenant shall execute an amendment to this Lease documenting the substitution of the New Premises under this Lease. 12. SERVICES TO TENANT Landlord reasonably agrees to provide Tenant, as Landlord reasonably deems necessary, subject to limitations contained in any governmental controls now or hereafter imposed or matters beyond Landlord's control and subject to cessation for reasonable necessity, the following services: (a) Heating and air-conditioning service daily on Monday through Friday, inclusive, except for holidays observed by national banks as legal holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Saturdays, if not a holiday, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (b) Electric current for building, standard tenant lighting and small business machinery only from electric circuits designated by Landlord for Tenant's use. Tenant will not use any electrical equipment which in Landlord's opinion will overload the wiring installations or interfere with the reasonable use thereof by other users in the building. Tenant will not, without Landlord's prior written consent in each instance, connect any items such as non-building standard tenant lighting, vending equipment, printing or duplicating machines, computers (other than desktop work processors, personal computers and photocopy equipment not requiring dedicated or special 6 <PAGE> circuitry), auxiliary air conditioners, and other computer-related equipment to the electrical system of the Premises, or make any alteration or addition to the system. If any additional circuitry or wiring is required by Tenant, and Landlord approves the installation of the same in writing, such work shall be performed at Tenant's expense by Landlord's electrician or under Landlord's control and supervision, and Tenant shall pay Landlord for such additional work as billed. In the event the Tenant utilizes electric current or other utilities in excess of the amount which would be typically utilized by normal business office use of the Premises, then Landlord shall have the right to charge Tenant as additional rent a reasonable sum as reimbursement for the direct cost of such additional use or services. In the event of a disagreement as to the reasonableness of the amount of such additional rent, the opinion of a qualified, local and independent professional engineer selected by Landlord in good faith shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. Payments for such additional electrical power shall be deemed additional rent due from Tenant. (c) General cleaning and janitorial service five times per week. (d) Reasonable quantities of water to lavatories, toilets and water fountains in or appurtenant to the Premises. 13. LIABILITY OF LANDLORD Excepting for the willful misconduct or gross negligence of Landlord, its agents and employees, Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant in any manner whatsoever for failure or delay in furnishing any service provided for in this Lease, and no such failure or delay to furnish any service or services by Landlord shall be an actual or constructive eviction of Tenant nor shall any such event operate to relieve Tenant from the prompt and punctual performance of each and all the covenants to be performed herein by Tenant; nor shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for damage to person or property caused by defects in the cooling, heating, electric, water, elevator or other apparatus or systems or by water discharged from sprinkler systems, if any, in the Building; nor shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for the theft, or loss of any property of Tenant whether from the Premises or any part of the Building or property adjoining the Building containing the Premises. Landlord agrees to make reasonable efforts to protect Tenant from interference or disturbance of third persons including other tenants, however, Landlord shall not be liable for any such interference or disturbance whether caused by another tenant or tenants or Landlord or other person, nor shall Tenant be relieved from any obligation herein because of such interference, disturbance or breach. 14. DEFAULT The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute an event of default hereunder by Tenant: (a) The Base Rent payable under this Lease (including any Additional Rent) or any sum of money due hereunder is not paid when due, and such failure to pay continues for more than five (5) days after Tenant's receipt of notice thereof from Landlord. Provided, however, that Landlord shall not be required to provide Tenant with the notice and five-day period set forth in this subparagraph more than three (3) times during the Term of this Lease, and the fourth and each subsequent failure to timely pay such sums shall immediately constitute an event of default hereunder. (b) The Premises are deserted, vacated or not used as regularly or consistently as would normally be expected for similar premises put to the same or similar purposes as set forth herein, even though the Tenant continues to pay the stipulated Base Rent, and such condition is not corrected within ten (10) days of Tenant's receipt of notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant. Provided, however, that Landlord shall not be required to provide Tenant with the notice and ten-day period set forth in this subparagraph more than once during the Term of this Lease, and the second, and each subsequent, occurrence of such condition shall immediately constitute an event of default hereunder. 7 <PAGE> (c) Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease files any petition for debt relief under any section or chapter of the national or federal bankruptcy code or any other applicable federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar act. (d) Any petition is filed against Tenant under any section or chapter of the national or federal bankruptcy code or any other applicable federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar act,and such petition is not dismissed within sixty (60) days after the date of such filing. (e) Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease shall become insolvent or transfer property to defraud creditors or there shall be a material adverse change in the net worth or credit rating of Tenant or such guarantor. (f) Tenant makes material misrepresentations to Landlord prior to or contemporaneously with the execution of this Lease. (g) Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease shall make an assignment for the benefit of creditors. (h) A receiver is appointed for any of the assets of Tenant or any guarantor of the Lease, and such receiver is not removed within sixty (60) days of Tenant's receipt of notice from Landlord to obtain such removal. (i) A lien is filed against the Premises or Landlord's estate therein by reason of any work, labor, services or materials performed or furnished, or alleged to have been performed or furnished, to Tenant or anyone holding the Premises by, through or under Tenant, and Tenant fails to cause the same to be vacated and canceled of record, or bonded off in accord with the provisions of this Lease, within twenty (20) days after the filing date thereof. (j) Tenant fails to observe, perform and keep each and every of the covenants, agreements, provisions, stipulations and conditions contained in this Lease to be observed, performed and kept by Tenant, including without limitation the "Rules and Regulations" for the project of which the Premises is a part, and unless otherwise specified herein, Tenant persists in such failure for twenty (20) days after receipt of notice by Landlord requiring that Tenant correct such failure; provided, that in the event any such failure is not reasonably susceptible of cure within such thirty (30)-day period, Tenant shall have a reasonable time to cure such failure provided Tenant commences cure as soon as is reasonably possible and prosecutes such cure diligently to completion. 15. REMEDIES Upon the occurrence of any material default by Tenant, Landlord shall have the option to do and perform any one or more of the following: (a) TERMINATION OF LEASE - Terminate this Lease, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord. If Tenant shall fail to do so, Landlord may, without notice and prejudice to any other remedy available, enter and take possession of the Premises and remove Tenant or anyone occupying the Premises and its effects without being liable to prosecution or any claim for damages. In the event of termination of this Lease, Tenant shall be responsible to Landlord for (i) all payments due under this Lease prior to the date of termination, (ii) all costs incurred by Landlord in connection with such termination, and (iii) the entire amount of Base Rent, Additional Rent and other charges due hereunder for the remainder of the Term less the then fair market rental value of the Premises for the remainder of the Term, with such difference discounted to its present value by using a discount factor of 6%. Such amount shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord immediately upon demand by Landlord and shall constitute liquidated damages and not a penalty or forfeiture (Tenant and Landlord agree that the actual damages are impossible to ascertain and that the amount described above is a reasonable estimate thereof). If Landlord elects to terminate this Lease, Tenant's liability to Landlord for damages shall survive such termination. (b) Landlord may correct such default and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord upon demand for the cost incurred by Tenant in curing such default. 8 <PAGE> (c) RELETTING OF PREMISES. Enter upon and take possession of the Premises as agent of Tenant without terminating (termination shall only occur by written notice of termination from Landlord to Tenant) this Lease and without being liable to prosecution or any claim for damages. Landlord may relet the Premises and in that connection may make any suitable alterations or refurbish the Premises, or both, or change the character or use of the Premises, but Landlord shall not be required to relet for any use or purpose other than that specified in this Lease or which Landlord may reasonably consider injurious to the Premises, or to any Tenant which Landlord may consider objectionable. Landlord may relet all or any portion of the Premises, alone or in conjunction with other portions of the Building, for a term longer or shorter than the Term of this Lease, at a rental rate provided in this Lease, and upon such other terms (including the granting of concessions) as Landlord solely determines to be acceptable. If Landlord elects to reenter and relet all or any portion of the Premises, Landlord shall apply the rent so collected as follows: (1) first, to any amount due hereunder other than Base Rent and Additional Rent; (2) second, to the payment of costs and expenses of such reletting; (3) third, to the payment of Rent and Additional Rent; (4) fourth, the residue shall be held and applied to future Base Rent and Additional Rent due hereunder and if any such excess exists at the termination of this Lease it shall be paid over to Tenant. No such reentry or taking possession of the Premises shall be construed as an election on Landlord's part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention be given to Tenant. Landlord, however, shall have no duty to relet the Premises and Landlord's failure to do so shall not release Tenant's liability for rent or damages. Landlord shall have the right to rent any other available space in the building before reletting or attempting to relet the Premises. (d) Upon such event of default, and notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, Tenant acknowledges that it shall become liable for any costs incurred by Landlord under this lease for the completion of any improvements to the Premises, and any real estate commissions paid by Landlord under this lease. 16. CUMULATIVE REMEDIES The above-stated remedies of Landlord shall be deemed to be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and remedies provided Landlord either at law or in equity. No delay in enforcing the provisions of the Lease shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of such default by Landlord, and the pursuit by Landlord of one or more remedies shall not be deemed to constitute an election against other remedies. 17. EFFECT OF TERMINATION OF LEASE No termination of this Lease prior to the normal ending thereof by lapse of time or otherwise shall affect Landlord's right to collect sums due hereunder for the period prior to termination thereof. 18. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING Tenant may not, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, assign this Lease or any interest hereunder, or sublet Premises or any part thereof, or permit the use of Premises by any party other than Tenant or an entity which owns, its owned by, or is under common ownership with Tenant. In the event Tenant wishes to sublease the Premises or assign the Lease, Landlord has the right, but not the 9 <PAGE> obligation, to terminate the Lease effective as of the date Tenant vacates the Premises. Should Landlord elect to terminate the Lease, Tenant shall be relieved of any liability or obligation to pay rent beyond the date of termination. Consent to one assignment or sublease shall not destroy or waive this provision, and all later assignments and subleases shall likewise be made only upon prior written consent of Landlord. Subtenants or assignees shall become liable directly to Landlord for all obligations of Tenant hereunder, without relieving Tenant's liability. In making Landlord's determination to approve or disapprove a proposed assignment or sublease hereunder, Landlord and Tenant agree that Landlord may withhold its consent to any proposed assignment or sublease, and such withholding of consent by Landlord will not be deemed to be unreasonable, (1) if the proposed assignee or subtenant is not a reputable party or is a party who would (or whose use would) detract from the character of the building, such as, without limitation, a dental, medical or chiropractic office or a governmental office, or (2) if the proposed assignee or subtenant shall be engaged in a business in the Premises which is not consistent with the then standards of the building or is not permitted by or would contravene the provisions of this Lease, or (3) if the lease or use of the Premises or any portion thereof by such subtenant or assignee will cause Landlord to be in violation of any restrictive use covenants granted by Landlord to any other tenant in the building in such tenant's lease, or (4) if, in the case of a proposed assignment or sublease the proposed assignee is not of sufficient financial worth to perform its obligations under this Lease as such obligations become due; provided, however, it is understood and agreed that the reasons outlined above in this sentence are not intended, and shall not be construed, to be an exclusive list of reasonable basis upon which Landlord may withhold its consent and Landlord reserves the right to disapprove of a proposed assignment or sublease by virtue of such other reasonable bases. Upon execution of any sublease or assignment approved by Landlord under this article, a fully-executed counterpart of the sublease or assignment shall be promptly delivered to Landlord by Tenant. A change, whether voluntary, involuntary or by operation of law, or a merger, consolidation or other reorganization of more than a 49% ownership in Tenant shall be deemed a voluntary assignment of this Lease and subject to the provisions of this article. 19. DESTRUCTION OR DAMAGE TO PREMISES If the Premises are totally destroyed (or so substantially damaged as to be untenantable) by storm, fire, earthquake or other casualty not caused by the act or failure to act of Tenant, and the Premises cannot in the judgment of Landlord be restored by the Landlord within 120 days, this Lease shall terminate as of that date. If the Premises are damaged but not rendered wholly untenantable by any such casualty, rental shall abate in proportion as the Premises have been damaged and Landlord shall at Landlord's option (i) restore the Premises as speedily as practicable to substantially the same condition as existed immediately preceding such casualty, whereupon full rent shall recommence, or (ii) notify Tenant within thirty (30) days that this Lease is terminated. 20. REMOVAL OF FIXTURES Tenant may (if not in default hereunder) prior to the expiration of this Lease, or any extension thereof, remove all unattached and movable personal property and equipment which Tenant has placed in the Premises, provided Tenant repairs all damages to Premises caused by such removal. All personal property of Tenant remaining on the Premises after the end of the Term shall be deemed conclusively abandoned, notwithstanding that title to or a security interest in such personal property may be held by an individual or entity other than Tenant, and Landlord may dispose of such personal property in any manner it deems proper, in its sole discretion. Tenant hereby waives and releases any claim against Landlord arising out of the removal or disposition of such personal property. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of removing such personal property. 10 <PAGE> [text struck out] 22.

ATTORNEY'S FEES If any rent owing under this Lease is collected by or through an attorney at law, Tenant agrees to pay Landlord's reasonable attorney's fees and other reasonable attorney's fees and other reasonable costs of collection. 24. ENTIRE AGREEMENT This Lease, including any attachments made a part hereof, contains the entire agreement of the parties and no representations, inducements, promises or agreements, oral or otherwise, between the parties not embodied herein shall be of any force or effect. No failure of Landlord to exercise any power given Landlord hereunder or to insist upon strict compliance by Tenant of any obligation hereunder, and no customer practice of the parties at variance with the terms hereof shall constitute a waiver of Landlord's right to demand exact compliance with the terms hereof. 25. SUBORDINATION AND ATTORNMENT Tenant agrees that this Lease shall be subject and subordinate to any mortgage, security deed, loan deed or similar instruments now on said Premises and to all advances already made, or which may be hereafter made, on account of said instruments to the full extent of all debts and charges secured thereby and to any renewals or extensions of all or any part thereof and to any such instruments which any owner of said Premises may hereafter at any time elect to place on said Premises, and Tenant agrees upon request to hereafter attorn to the holder of such mortgage, security deed or other instrument as the Landlord under this Lease and execute any paper or papers which the counsel for Landlord may deem necessary to accomplish that end and, in default of Tenant so doing, that Landlord is hereby empowered to execute such paper or papers in the name of Tenant, and as the act and deed of Tenant, and this authority is hereby declared to be coupled with an interest and not revocable. 11 <PAGE> 26.

NO ESTATE IN LAND This Lease shall create the relationship of landlord and tenant between Landlord and Tenant; no estate shall pass out of Landlord, Tenant has only a usufrOOt, not subject to levy and sale and not assignable by Tenant except by Landlord's consent. 28.
