To the extent the terms of the Prime Lease as applicable to this Sublease as provided in the preceding sentence are inconsistent with the express terms of this Sublease, this Sublease shall govern. Rights and obligations under the Prime Lease that are applicable both to Exult's tenancy of the Premises hereunder and IP's tenancy of the remainder of the premises under the Prime Lease will be shared 28.93% by Exult and 71.07% by IP, consistent with their respective proportionate shares of the Premises under the Prime Lease. Exult and IP shall cooperate in pursuing rights and remedies of Tenant under the Prime Lease, insofar as such rights and remedies affect or relate to the Premises or this Sublease. IP shall provide notice to Exult of all actions, assertions of rights, and pursuit of remedies by IP under the Prime Lease, and shall provide to Exult copies of all communications with Landlord under the Prime Lease to the extent that such actions, rights, remedies and communications affect or relate to the Premises or this Sublease. (b) Excluded Terms, Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following provisions of the Prime Lease (collectively, the "EXCLUDED TERMS") shall not be incorporated by reference in this Sublease: Articles II (Construction), III (Term), IV (Base Rent), XII (Assignment and Subletting), 13.06 (Waiver of Subrogation), XIV (Damage or Destruction), XV (Condemnation), XVII (Holding Over), XIX (Landlord's Default), XXIII (Notices) 24.10 (Brokerage), 24.11 (Landlord Limited Liability), and XXV (Special Provision) (except for Article 25.02 which shall be applicable).

(ii) With respect to Article VIII (Landlord's Obligations) "Landlord" as used therein shall mean Landlord. (iii) With respect to Article X (Inspection) "Landlord" as used therein shall mean Landlord and IP. ---------- * Confidential information has been omitted. 9 <PAGE> (iv) With respect to Articles 13.01 (Casualty Insurance), 13.02 (Loss of Rent Insurance) and 13.03 (Landlord's Liability Insurance) "Landlord" as used therein shall mean Landlord and not IP. (v) With respect to Article 13.04 (Tenant's Liability Insurance) "Landlord" as used therein shall mean Landlord and IP. (vi) With respect to Article 16.01 (Liability) "Landlord" as used therein shall mean Landlord and IP. (d) Right of Entry. In any case where the Landlord reserves the right to enter the Premises, said right shall inure to the benefit of the Landlord as well as to IP. (e) Limits on IP Obligations. Except as set forth in this Sublease, IP shall not be obligated to perform, and shall not be liable for the performance or default by Landlord of, any of the obligations of Landlord under the Prime Lease. Except for those instances in which the Sublease provides that IP shall have the obligations of the Landlord or IP has received services or is entitled to rights or remedies from Landlord but has not passed them through to Exult, or IP has failed in good faith to pursue such services, rights and remedies to the extent of its entitlement thereto under the Prime Lease, or as otherwise set forth in this Sublease, (i) Exult shall have no claim against IP by reason of any default upon the part of Landlord; (ii) IP shall have no obligation at any time to render any services to Exult or to the Premises of any nature whatsoever, or to expend any money for the Premises, including but not limited to, preservation, reconstruction or repair of the Premises; (iii) Exult agrees to look solely to Landlord for the performance of any obligations by Landlord or the furnishing of any services to which IP may be entitled under the Prime Lease; (iv) if Landlord fails to perform an obligation or provide a service which Landlord is required by the Prime Lease to perform or provide, then except for those instances in which the Sublease provides that IP shall have the obligations of the Landlord, IP's sole obligation is to cooperate with Exult, and to use reasonable efforts, without, however, incurring any liabilities or out-of-pocket expenses in excess of amounts that IP would otherwise incur or expend on its own behalf under the Prime Lease, by taking whatever action Exult shall reasonably request, to enforce for the benefit of Exult the obligations of Landlord to IP under the Prime Lease insofar as they relate to the Premises. By virtue of this subsection, in connection with the incorporation by reference of the Prime Lease the term "Landlord shall", "Landlord will", "Landlord agrees" or similar language shall be deemed, for the purposes of this Sublease, except for those instances in which the Sublease provides that IP shall have the obligations of the Landlord, to mean "IP shall use reasonable efforts, without, however, incurring any material liabilities or out-of-pocket expenses in excess of amounts IP would have expended on its own behalf under the Prime Lease, to cause Landlord" whenever such a modification is required so that an incorporated provision reflects the agreement of the parties hereto as expressed in this paragraph. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, in the event Landlord fails to perform any of its maintenance repair obligations pursuant to Article 8.01 of the Prime Lease, IP ---------- * Confidential information has been omitted. 10 <PAGE> shall complete such maintenance or repairs pursuant to the terms of that Article. (f) Reimbursement of IP. All reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of IP taking actions requested by Exult to obtain the performance of Landlord's obligations for the benefit of Exult that are in excess of amounts IP would have expended on its own behalf under the Prime Lease shall be reimbursed by Exult within thirty (30) days from written demand by IP. (g) Exult Compliance with Prime Lease. With respect to its occupancy of the Premises under this Sublease, Exult agrees not to do or suffer or permit anything to be done which would (i) violate any term or condition of the Prime Lease; (ii) cause the Prime Lease to be terminated or forfeited; (iii) violate any certificate of occupancy affecting the Premises or the building in which the Premises are located; (iv) increase the insurance premiums or result in the cancellation of insurance covering the Premises; or (v) violate any laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, orders or regulations. However, Exult's obligations under this provision do not extend to the Excluded Provisions and Exult shall have no obligation or liability under this Sublease or otherwise for any act or omission of IP, its employees, agents, independent contractors, successors or assigns. (h) Alterations. Any alterations (as defined in Article 9.01 of the Prime Lease) desired to be made by Exult, are subject to the terms of Article 9.01 of the Prime Lease. Exult shall also obtain IP's prior written consent to the making of any alterations, changes or additions, notwithstanding the cost thereof. IP agrees, subject to the Prime Lease, to consider such request concurrently with the Landlord, provided Exult makes concurrent requests for such consent to Landlord and to IP. Exult shall, provided Landlord cooperates with Exult, contact Landlord directly for the Landlord's consent, if required. In securing IP's consent to such alterations, changes or additions, Exult shall only be required to submit to IP those plans, specifications and information also submitted to Landlord to secure its consent. Nothing contained herein shall relieve Exult from the obligation to obtain Landlord's consent with respect to any such alterations, changes or additions as provided in the Lease. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding paragraph, it is Exult's intention to use the Premises as a multi-client facility, and IP recognizes that converting the Premises to multi-client use will require certain modifications to the Premises. Any modifications to the Premises proposed by Exult must comply with the Prime Lease and all applicable laws and regulations and conform to applicable requirements imposed by regulatory authorities. Further, in designing and implementing the modifications, Exult must consult with IP and Landlord, and the design and implementation of the modifications will be subject to the approval of IP. Subject to Exult's compliance with the preceding two sentences, IP will not unreasonably withhold its consent to such modifications. (i) Cure of Exult Default by IP. If Exult shall default in the performance of any of its obligations under this Sublease, other than its obligation to pay rent to IP, IP, without 11 <PAGE> being under any obligation to do so and without thereby waiving such default, shall have the right, upon reasonable notice (except in an emergency or where delay could result in a default under the Prime Lease), to cure such default for the account and at the expense of Exult without prior notice in the case of emergency and, in all other cases, upon five (5) business days' written notice by IP to Exult. IP shall have the right to enter the Premises upon reasonable advance notice to Exult at such times and to the extent as may be reasonably necessary to exercise its right to cure Exult's defaults as provided above. (j) Notices Related to the Premises. Exult shall promptly furnish IP with copies of all notices relating to the Premises which Exult shall receive from Landlord, and IP shall promptly furnish Exult with copies of all notices relating to the Premises which IP receives from Landlord. (k) IP Consents. Exult agrees that in each instance where a provision of the Prime Lease (as incorporated by reference herein) requires the consent or approval of Landlord, whether prior to Exult taking any action or otherwise, it shall be a condition precedent to the taking of such action or otherwise that the prior written consent or approval of both Landlord and IP shall have been obtained. Exult agrees that IP shall not have any duty or responsibility with respect to obtaining the consent or approval of Landlord when the same is required, other than (i) the transmission by IP to Landlord of Exult's request for such consent or approval and (ii) IP's cooperation with Exult to obtain such approval or consent provided that such cooperation does not require IP to incur any out-of-pocket expense or to make any material performance or undertaking. IP shall not be required to give any consent or approval provided for hereunder because Landlord has given consent or approval with respect to the same matter. Any consent or approval required to be given by IP under this Sublease shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. 9. IDB LEASE OBLIGATIONS (a) IP Obligations. Subject to Exult's obligations under Section 9(b), (i) IP will be responsible for ascertaining and meeting the requirements of the Pilot program referenced in the IDB Lease; (ii) IP will fulfill its obligations as "Applicant" under the PILOT Program and as a tenant under the IDB Lease and the Application referenced therein; and (iii) IP will reimburse to Exult all costs incurred by Exult as a result of IP's breach of its obligations under this Section 9(a). (b) Exult Obligations. In support of IP's employment commitments under the Pilot program referenced in the IDB Lease, Exult will comply with its commitments under the MSA regarding employment in connection with the Premises. IP shall inform Exult of all other requirements under the IDB Lease that may be applicable to Exult pursuant to this Section 9(b). If and to the extent that requirements imposed upon IP specifically pursuant to the IDB Lease relate specifically to the Premises, and IP has notified Exult thereof in writing, Exult will comply with such requirements at Exult's expense. In addition, (i) Exult will use reasonable efforts to assist IP in complying with 12 <PAGE> requirements under the IDB Lease referenced in the IDB Lease that do not relate specifically to the Premises; and (ii) Exult will not take any action that Exult would otherwise be entitled to take but that IP has notified Exult would cause IP to be in breach of its obligations under the IDB Lease or the Pilot program; provided, however, that IP will reimburse Exult for any loss or diminution of Exult's rights or quiet enjoyment, or additional costs or damages incurred by Exult under this Sublease as a result of Exult's compliance with this sentence, so long as Exult is not in default of any obligations under this Sublease. Exult will have the rights described in Section 3.6(e) of the IDB Lease applicable to sub-sublessees, subject to the obligations and limitations set forth in such Section 3.6(e), and will have the benefit of all cure periods available under the IDB Lease that are applicable to obligations that Exult is required under this Section 9(b) to undertake. 10. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS (a) Use. The Premises may be used only to perform the kinds of services contemplated by the MSA and related tasks and processes. Exult may expand the scope of operations of the Premises beyond that in existence as of the date hereof in the Employee Service Center, including without limitation to serve clients other than IP from the Premises provided that the use of the Premises shall be in compliance with the Prime Lease. (b) Exult Indemnity. Exult agrees to indemnify and hold IP, its agents, employees and officers, and their successors and assigns, harmless from and against all actions, claims, demands, judgments, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses whatsoever (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements) arising out of any violation caused or permitted by Exult, its contractors, customers, agents, servants, employees or invitees, of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Sublease or the Prime Lease to the extent incorporated by this Sublease or the IDB Lease, or arising out of or incurred, upon the execution of this Sublease on account of any acts or omissions of Exult, its agents, contractors, customers, servants, employees or invitees occurring in, on or about the Premises. In case any action or proceeding is brought against IP by reason of any of the above, IP shall give written notice thereof to Exult, and Exult shall resist or defend such action by counsel reasonably satisfactory to IP at the sole cost and expense of Exult. IP shall cooperate in Exult's defense, at Exult's sole cost and expense.

ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLEASING Exult shall have no right to assign this Sublease or sublet all or any portion of the Premises, or permit the same to be used by any person or entity other than Exult, without the prior written consent of IP, except that with notice to IP but without IP's approval Exult may assign its rights and obligations under this Sublease to an entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with Exult which expressly assumes Exult's obligations hereunder, provided that Exult guarantees such entity's full performance of such entity's obligations pursuant to this Sublease, and subject to any Landlord approval required under the Prime Lease. Exult may upon notice to IP assign its rights and obligations under this Sublease in connection with a Change in Control, as defined in the MSA.

INSURANCE Exult shall, at its sole cost and expense, obtain and keep in effect during the term of this Sublease the insurance required under Article 13.04 of the Prime Lease and shall name Landlord and IP as additional insureds, provided that such Insurance 15 <PAGE> need only apply to the Premises under this Sublease and Exult's use thereof. Prior to the commencement of the term of this Sublease, Exult shall provide to IP certificates evidencing such insurance and including an undertaking by the carrier not to cancel the insurance or reduce the coverage limits changed without first giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to IP. No such cancellation, modification or change shall affect Exult's obligation to maintain the insurance coverage required by this Sublease. Exult shall be responsible for payment of any and all deductibles from insured claims under its policies. The coverage afforded under any insurance policy obtained by Exult pursuant to this Sublease shall be primary coverage regardless of whether or not Landlord and IP have any similar coverage. Exult shall not proceed under this Sublease until evidence of such insurance has been delivered to Landlord and IP. During the performance of this Sublease, Exult shall provide, IP, within thirty (30) days after each renewal, with evidence of renewal of such insurance. Exult may not self-insure any of the insurance coverage required by this Sublease without prior written consent of IP. The maintenance of such insurance shall not in any way limit the liability of Exult to Landlord and IP under the Sublease. 17.
