B. Landlord and Tenant wish to enter into this Lease of the Premises upon the terms and conditions set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, the parties agree as follows:
Landlord hereby leases to Tenant, and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord the Premises at the rental and upon all of the terms and conditions set forth herein.

Upon the execution and delivery of this Lease, Landlord and Tenant shall confirm in writing the Commencement Date and the Expiration Date of the initial term by executing and delivering the Commencement Memorandum in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated by reference herein. The "term of this Lease" as used herein shall include the option extension period referred to in Paragraph 3 if the option to extend is exercised in a timely manner.
(b) Tenant acknowledges that (1) Tenant is currently in possession of the Premises pursuant to that certain Sublease dated as of July 8, 2003 (the "Sublease"), by and between Pacific Data Images, Inc., a California corporation ("Pacific Data"), as Sublandlord, and Tenant, as Subtenant, and (2) the Sublease is in full force and effect and there is no existing uncured default thereunder by either Sublandlord (to Tenant's knowledge) or Tenant Landlord

|3.||OPTION TO EXTEND|
(a) Landlord hereby grants to Tenant one (1) option to extend the term of this Lease for a period of twenty-four (24) calendar months immediately following the expiration of the initial term. Tenant may exercise the foregoing option to extend by giving written notice of exercise to Landlord at least six (6) months, but not more than nine (9) months, prior to the expiration of the initial term of this Lease ("the option exercise period"), time being of the essence; provided that if Tenant is currently in a state of uncured default after the expiration of notice and cure periods, if applicable (referred to herein as "in default") under this Lease at the time of exercise of the option or on the commencement date of the option extension period, such notice of exercise shall be void and of no force or effect. Such option extension period, if exercised, shall be upon the same terms and conditions as the initial term of this Lease, including the payment by Tenant of the Operating Expenses and Taxes pursuant to Paragraph 5, except that (1) the Monthly Base Rent during the option period shall be determined as set forth in Paragraph 3(b) hereof, (2) there shall be no additional option to extend, and (3) Tenant shall accept the Premises in their then "as is" condition, and Paragraph 13(a) and Paragraph 13(b) of this Lease shall not apply to the option period. If Tenant does not exercise the option to extend in a timely manner the option shall lapse, time being of the essence.
(b) The initial Monthly Base Rent for the Premises during the option extension period shall be the greater of (1) Eighty-two Thousand Dollars ($82,000) per month, or (2) the then current fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises on the commencement date of the option extension period as determined by agreement between the Landlord and Tenant reached prior to the expiration of the option exercise period, if possible, and by the process of appraisal if the parties cannot reach agreement.
Upon the written request by Tenant to Landlord received by Landlord no earlier than ninety (90) days and no later than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the option exercise period (e.g., between April 1, 2009 and May 31, 2009) and prior to the exercise by Tenant of the option to extend, Landlord shall give Tenant written notice of Landlord's good faith opinion of the fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises as of the commencement date of the option extension period. If Landlord's good faith opinion of the fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises as of the commencement date of the option extension period exceeds Eighty-two Thousand Dollars ($82,000) per month, then upon the request of Tenant, Landlord and Tenant shall enter into good faith negotiations for thirty (30) days in an effort to reach agreement on the initial Monthly Base Rent for the Premises during the option extension period.
If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree upon the amount equal to the then current fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises, and thereafter, prior to the expiration of the option exercise period, Tenant exercises the option to extend, said amount shall be determined by appraisal. The appraisal shall be performed by one appraiser if the parties are
- 2 -
able to agree upon one appraiser. If the parties are unable to agree upon one appraiser, each party shall appoint an appraiser and the two appraisers shall select a third appraiser. Each appraiser selected shall be an experienced commercial real estate agent with at least five (5) years of full-time commercial real estate experience in the Palo Alto office market.
If only one appraiser is selected, that appraiser shall notify the parties in simple letter form of its determination of the amount equal to the fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises on the commencement date of the option extension period within fifteen (15) days following its selection. Said appraisal shall be binding on the parties as the appraised current "fair market Monthly Base Rent" for the Premises which shall be based upon what a willing new lessee would pay and a willing lessor would accept at arm's length for the Premises determined with reference to comparable premises in the market area of the Premises of similar age, size, quality of construction and specifications (excluding the value of any improvements to the Premises made at Tenant's cost) for a lease similar to this Lease and taking into consideration that there will be no free rent, improvement allowance, or other concessions. If multiple appraisers are selected, each appraiser shall within ten (10) days of being selected make its determination of the amount of the current fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises in simple letter form. If two (2) or more of the appraisers agree on said amount, such agreement shall be binding upon the parties. If multiple appraisers are selected and two (2) appraisers are unable to agree on said amount, the amount of the fair market Monthly Base Rent for the Premises shall be determined by taking the mean average of the appraisals; provided, that any high or low appraisal, differing from the middle appraisal by more than ten percent (10%) of the middle appraisal, shall be disregarded in calculating the average. Said initial Monthly Base Rent shall be increased on the first anniversary of the commencement of the option term in the manner determined by the appraisers to be consistent with the then prevailing market practice for comparable space in the Palo Alto office market, subject to Paragraph 3(d) hereof.
If only one appraiser is selected, then each party shall pay one-half of the fees and expenses of that appraiser. If three appraisers are selected, each party shall bear the fees and expenses of the appraiser it selects and one-half of the fees and expenses of the third appraiser.
(c) Thereafter, provided that Tenant has previously given timely notice to Landlord of the exercise by Tenant of the option to extend the term, Landlord and Tenant shall execute an amendment to this Lease stating that the initial Monthly Base Rent for the Premises during the option extension period (and the increase as of the first anniversary of the commencement of the option extension period) shall be equal to the determination by appraisal.
(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in subparagraphs (b) and (c) above, in no event shall the Monthly Base Rent at the commencement of the option extension period be less than Eighty-two Thousand Dollars ($82,000) per month, and in no event shall the increase in Monthly Base Rent as of the first anniversary of the commencement of the option term be less than $0.10 per rentable square foot of the Premises.

Each such assignment or sublease agreement shall recite that it is and shall be subject and subordinate to the provisions of this Lease, that the assignee or sublessee accepts such assignment or sublease, that Tenant shall not be released from its
- 19 -
obligations hereunder in the case of an assignment where Tenant survives the transaction (unless Landlord otherwise agrees in writing), that Landlord's consent thereto shall not constitute a consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting by Tenant or the assignee or sublessee, and, except as otherwise set forth in a sublease approved by Landlord, agrees to perform all of the obligations of Tenant hereunder, including, but not limited to, the payment of rent (to the extent such obligations relate to the portion of the Premises assigned or subleased or as appropriate), and that the termination of this Lease shall, at Landlord's sole election, constitute a termination of every such assignment or sublease.

(h) The sale of Tenant's capital stock in a public offering pursuant to an effective registration statement filed by Tenant with the Securities and Exchange Commission or in connection with any other bona fide financing transaction shall not be deemed an assignment, subletting, or other assignment or sublease of this Lease or the Premises, provided, that in the event of the sale, assignment or sublease of this Lease, or issuance of Tenant's securities in connection with a merger, consolidation, or reorganization in which Tenant is not a surviving entity, the conditions set forth in Paragraph I7(g)(1), (3), and (4) shall apply.
(i) Subject to the provisions of this Paragraph 17 any assignment or sublease without Landlord's prior written consent (where such consent is required hereunder) shall at Landlord's election be void. The consent by Landlord to any assignment or sublease shall not

In the event of holding over by Tenant after the expiration or termination of this Lease, such holding over shall be on a month-to-month tenancy and all of the terms and provisions of this Lease shall be
- 21 -
applicable during such period, except that Tenant shall pay Landlord as Monthly Base Rent during such holdover an amount equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Monthly Base Rent in effect at the expiration of the term.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Paragraph 20, except as set forth in Paragraph 20(d), Landlord shall not have the right to terminate this Lease if the cost to repair the damage to the Building and improvements would cost less than five percent (5%) of the replacement cost of the Building and improvements, regardless of whether or not the casualty is insured or required to be insured. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Paragraph 20, if the cost to repair the damage to the Building and improvements exceeds five percent (5%) of the replacement cost of the Building and improvements, and Landlord elects to terminate this Lease, Tenant may nullify the effect of such termination by giving Landlord written notice within ten (10) days after receipt by Tenant of Landlord's notice of termination that Tenant elects to repair the damage to the Building and improvements at Tenant's sole cost (to the extent the costs exceed Landlord's insurance proceeds), in which event this Lease shall remain in effect, provided that rent abatement shall not extend beyond the date that the restoration is completed.
(c) In the event of a partial destruction of the Building and improvements to an extent less than sixty-five percent (65%) of the replacement cost thereof, and the damage cannot be repaired, reconstructed, or restored within a period of one hundred eighty (180) days

The foregoing shall not affect Landlord's termination rights under subparagraph (b) above.
Furthermore, if such casualty is from a cause which is not insured or not required by this Lease to be insured under Landlord's "all risk" property insurance, or is not insured under any other insurance carried by Landlord, Landlord may elect to repair and restore the Building and improvements (provided that Tenant has not elected to terminate this Lease pursuant to the first sentence of this Paragraph 20(c) or Paragraph 20(d)), or Landlord may terminate this Lease effective as of the date of the casualty by giving written notice of termination to Tenant, subject to the limitations of Paragraph 20(b). Landlord's election to repair and restore the Building and improvements or to terminate this Lease shall be made and written notice thereof shall be given to Tenant within forty-five (45) days after the casualty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (1) if Landlord has not obtained all necessary governmental permits for the restoration and commenced construction of the restoration within one hundred twenty (120) days after the casualty, Tenant may terminate this Lease by written notice to Landlord given at any time prior to the actual commencement of construction of the restoration; or (2) if Landlord elects to repair and restore the Building and improvements under subparagraph (b) or (c) above, but the repairs and restoration are not substantially completed within two hundred ten (210) days after the casualty, plus the period of any delays in the completion of the repairs and restoration caused by strikes, labor disputes, unavailability of materials, inclement weather, or acts of God ("force majeure delays"), Tenant may terminate this Lease by written notice to Landlord given within thirty (30) days after the expiration of said period of two hundred ten (210) days after the casualty plus the period of any force majeure delays, but not by more than sixty (60) additional days.
(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Paragraph 20, if at any time during the last twelve (12) months of the term of this Lease, there is damage to the Building and improvements for which the cost to repair exceeds five percent (5%) of the replacement cost the Building and improvements, whether or not an insured loss, both Landlord and Tenant shall have the option to terminate this Lease effective as of the date of occurrence of such damage by giving written notice to the other party of its election to do so within fifteen (15) days after the date of such damage. However, if Landlord elects to terminate this Lease and Tenant is not then in default under the Lease, Tenant may negate Landlord's election to terminate under this Paragraph 20(d) by electing, within ten (10) days after receipt of Landlord's termination notice, to exercise any unexercised option to extend this Lease. If Tenant negates Landlord's election, this Lease shall continue in effect.
(e) If this Lease is not terminated by Landlord or Tenant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, Landlord shall complete the repairs in a diligent manner and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, except that Monthly Base Rent and Additional Rent shall be abated in accordance with Paragraph 20(f) below.
- 23 -
(f) In the event of repair, reconstruction, or restoration as provided herein, the Monthly Base Rent and Additional Rent shall be abated proportionally in the ratio which the Tenant's use of the Premises is impaired during the period of such repair, reconstruction, or restoration, from the date of the casualty until such repair, reconstruction or restoration is completed.
(g) With respect to any destruction of the Building and improvements which Landlord is obligated to repair, or may elect to repair, under the terms of this Paragraph 20, the provisions of Section 1932, Subdivision 2, and of Section 1933, Subdivision 4, of the Civil Code of the State of California are waived by the parties. Landlord shall repair and restore any leasehold improvements constructed thereafter by Landlord, or by Tenant with Landlord's prior written consent.
(h) In the event of termination of this Lease pursuant to any of the provisions of this Paragraph 20, the Monthly Base Rent and Additional Rent shall be apportioned on a per diem basis and shall be paid to the date of the casualty. In no event shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for any damages resulting to Tenant from the occurrence of such casualty, or from the repairing or restoration of the Building and improvements, or from the termination of this Lease as provided herein, nor shall Tenant be relieved thereby from any of Tenant's obligations hereunder, except to the extent and upon the conditions expressly set forth in this Paragraph 20, and except in the event of termination of the Lease by either party in which case Tenant shall be relieved of its obligations under the Lease accruing from and after the date of such termination.
(a) If the whole or any substantial part of the Building shall be taken or condemned by any competent public authority for any public use or purpose, the term of this Lease shall end upon the earlier to occur of the date when the possession of the part so taken shall be required for such use or purpose or the vesting of title in such public authority. Tenant shall be entitled to receive any damages separately awarded by the court for (1) leasehold improvements installed at Tenant's expense or other property owned by Tenant, and (2) reasonable costs of moving by Tenant to another location in Santa Clara County, California. The entire balance of the award shall be the property of Landlord.
(b) If there is a partial taking of the Premises by eminent domain which is not a substantial part of the Building and the balance of the Premises remains reasonably suitable for continued use and occupancy by Tenant for the purposes referred to in Paragraph 8, Landlord shall complete any necessary repairs in a diligent manner and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect with a just and proportionate abatement of the Monthly Base Rent and Additional Rent, based on the extent to which Tenant's use of the Premises is impaired thereafter. If after a partial taking, the Premises are not reasonably suitable for Tenant's continued use and occupancy for the uses permitted herein, Tenant may terminate this Lease effective on the earlier of the date title vests in the public authority or the date possession is taken. Subject to the provisions of Paragraph 21(a), the entire award for such taking shall be the property of Landlord.
- 24 -
If Tenant fails to make any payment of rent or any other sum due under this Lease for five (5) days or more after the same is due; or if Tenant breaches any other term of this Lease for thirty (30) days or more after receipt by Tenant of written notice from Landlord (unless such default is reasonably incapable of cure within thirty (30) days and Tenant commences cure within thirty (30) days and diligently prosecutes the cure to completion within a reasonable time); or if Tenant's interest herein, or any part thereof, is assigned or transferred, either voluntarily or by operation of law (except as expressly permitted by other provisions of this Lease); or if Tenant makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; or if this Lease is rejected (1) by a bankruptcy trustee for Tenant, (2) by Tenant as debtor in possession, or (3) by failure of Tenant as a bankrupt debtor to act timely in assuming or rejecting this Lease; then any of such events shall constitute an event of default and breach of this Lease by Tenant and Landlord may, at its option, elect the remedies specified in either subparagraph (a) or (b) below. Any such rejection of this Lease referred to above shall not cause an automatic termination of this Lease. Whenever in this Lease reference is made to a default by Tenant, such reference shall refer to an event of default ("Event of Default") by Tenant as defined in this Paragraph 22.
(a) Landlord may repossess the Premises and remove all persons and property therefrom. If Landlord repossesses the Premises because of an Event of Default by Tenant, this Lease shall terminate and Landlord may recover from Tenant:
(1) the worth at the time of award of the unpaid rent which had been earned at the time of termination including interest thereon at a rate equal to the Federal discount rate plus one percent (1%), or the maximum legal rate of interest, whichever is less, from the time of termination until paid;
(2) 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, including interest thereon at a rate equal to the Federal discount rate plus one percent (1%) per annum, or the maximum legal rate of interest, whichever is less, from the time of termination until paid;
(3) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss for the same period that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided, discounted at the discount rate published by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco for member banks at the time of award plus one percent (1%); and
(4) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant's breach or 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.
(b) If Landlord does not repossess the Premises, then this Lease shall continue in effect for so long as Landlord does not terminate Tenant's right to possession and Landlord may enforce all of its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover the rent
- 25 -
and other sums due from Tenant hereunder For the purposes of this Paragraph 22, the following do not constitute a repossession of the Premises by Landlord or a termination of the Lease by Landlord:
(1) Acts of maintenance or preservation by Landlord or efforts by Landlord to relet the Premises; or
(2) The appointment of a receiver by Landlord to protect Landlord's interests under this Lease.
