Exhibit E ENVIRONMENTAL QUESTIONNAIRE
1. LEASE AGREEMENT. On the terms stated in this Lease, Landlord leases the Premises to Tenant, and Tenant leases the Premises from Landlord, for the Term beginning on the Commencement Date and ending on the Termination Date unless extended or sooner terminated pursuant to this Lease.
A. Commencement Date.
1. The commencement date (Commencement Date) for this Lease is the date set forth in the Schedule, provided that if the Substantial Completion Date (as defined in the Tenant Improvement Agreement attached as Exhibit C) does not occur on or before the Commencement Date set forth in the Schedule for any reason, then (a) this Lease shall not be void or voidable by either party, (b) Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any loss or damage resulting therefrom, and (c) the Commencement Date shall be revised to mean the date on which the Substantial Completion Date occurs (or is deemed to have occurred) and the Termination Date shall be revised accordingly so that the Term (as defined in the Schedule) is unaffected by such delay. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Substantial Completion Date does not occur on or before February 1, 2004 (the Premises Delivery Deadline), Tenant, as its sole remedy, shall have the right to cancel this Lease by giving written notice of such cancellation to Landlord at any time after the Premises Delivery Deadline and prior to the date Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant, in which case this Lease shall be cancelled effective thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of Tenants cancellation notice, unless Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant within said thirty (30) day period; provided, however, that the Premises Delivery Deadline shall be extended by the number of days that the Substantial Completion Date is delayed due to any Force Majeure Delay (as defined below). In the event of such cancellation by Tenant, neither party shall have any obligations to the other under this Lease, except for obligations arising before such cancellation and except that Landlord shall promptly refund to Tenant all consideration received. For purposes of this Lease, the term Force Majeure Delay means any delay attributable to one or more of the following causes: strike, lockout or other labor disturbance, civil disturbance, fire, flood, lightning, earthquake, or other act of God or the public enemy, war, terrorism, riot, sabotage, blockade, embargo, accident, interruption of utilities or services, inability to obtain necessary materials, supplies or labor, action or inaction on the part of any government or regulatory body, or any other similar cause which is beyond the reasonable control of Landlord, provided, however, that the extension of the Premises Delivery Deadline by any Force Majeure Delay shall not exceed sixty (60) days.
2. If Landlord is delayed in completing Landlords Work (as defined in the Tenant Improvement Agreement) or in delivering possession of the Premises to Tenant as a result of any Tenant Delay (as defined below), (a) the Substantial Completion Date shall be deemed to have occurred on the date the Substantial Completion Date would have occurred in the absence of such Tenant Delay, as reasonably determined by Landlord or Landlords architect, and (b) Tenant shall be responsible for and shall pay any costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with, or as a consequence of, any Tenant Delay. For purposes of this Lease, the term Tenant Delay means a delay in the Substantial Completion (as defined in the Tenant Improvement Agreement) of Landlords Work or the delivery of possession of the Premises to Tenant, to the extent caused by the act, omission, neglect or failure of Tenant or any of Tenants agents, employees, contractors or subcontractors; provided, however, that no Tenant Delay shall be deemed to have occurred hereunder unless and until Landlord has given written
notice to Tenant specifying the action or inaction which Landlord contends constitutes a Tenant Delay, and Tenant Delay shall begin from the date following said notice when Tenant could reasonably take or refrain from taking the specified action or inaction.
3. If and only if the Commencement Date is adjusted pursuant to the foregoing, then Landlord, following the Commencement Date, shall prepare and deliver to Tenant a Commencement Date Confirmation substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D that sets forth both the Commencement Date and Termination Date for this Lease. Tenant shall execute the Commencement Date Confirmation and deliver the executed original of the same to Landlord within three (3) days after Tenants receipt thereof. Tenants failure to timely execute and return the Commencement Date Confirmation document to Landlord shall be conclusive evidence of Tenants agreement with the information as set forth therein.
4. This Lease shall be a binding contractual obligation effective upon execution and delivery hereof by Landlord and Tenant, notwithstanding the later commencement of the Lease Term.
B. Termination Date. The termination date (Termination Date) of this Lease is the date set forth in the Schedule.
C. Early Occupancy. During the period commencing on the date on which this Lease has been executed by both parties and ending on the Commencement Date (the Early Occupancy Period), Tenant shall be permitted to enter the Premises for the purpose of installing certain trade fixtures and cabling therein and conducting any other business which does not delay or impede Landlords Work, provided that (1) Tenants early entry does not interfere with Landlords performance of Landlords Work, (2) prior to Tenants entry in the Premises, Tenant shall furnish to Landlord certificates of insurance satisfactory to Landlord evidencing Tenants compliance with the requirements of Section 8.C below, and (3) Tenant shall comply with the requirements of Section 5 below. Tenants occupancy of the Premises during the Early Occupancy Period shall be subject to all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease, except that Landlord agrees that Tenants obligation to pay Base Rent and Operating Cost Share Rent (as such terms are defined in Sections 2.A(1) and 2.A(2) below) during the Early Occupancy Period shall be waived. Any delay in Landlords Work caused by Tenants early entry shall constitute a Tenant Delay.
A. Types of Rent. Tenant shall pay the following Rent in the form of a check to Landlord at the following address:
CarrAmerica Realty Corporation
t/a Fremont Technology Park
P.O. Box 642922
Pittsburgh, PA 15264-2922
or by wire transfer as follows:
|CarrAmerica Realty Corporation|
|t/a Fremont Technology Park|
|Lease Administration (CarrAmerica Realty|
|Corporation re Intervideo, Inc.)|
or in such other manner as Landlord may notify Tenant.
1. Base Rent in monthly installments in advance, commencing on the Rent Commencement Date and continuing on the first day of each calendar month thereafter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) Tenant shall deposit with Landlord on the date Tenant executes and delivers this Lease the cash sum set forth in the Schedule for Prepaid Rent, which amount shall be applied by Landlord against Base Rent for the first full calendar month following the Rent Commencement Date; and (b) if the Rent Commencement Date is a day other than the first day of a calendar month, then the Base Rent for the partial month in which the Rent Commencement Date occurs (the Partial Lease Month Rent) shall be calculated on a per diem basis at the rate of Eight Hundred Forty-One and 66/100 Dollars ($841.66) per day for the number of days of such month from and including the Rent Commencement Date, and such Partial Lease Month Rent shall be payable by Tenant on the first day of the calendar month immediately following the Rent Commencement Date.
2. Operating Cost Share Rent for each Fiscal Year during the Term of this Lease equals the sum of the following:
(a) Tenants Proportionate Share of Operating Costs (as defined in Section 2.C(1) below) for the applicable Fiscal Year; provided, however, that (i) the amount payable by Tenant pursuant to this Subsection 2.A(2)(a) shall not exceed Twenty-Eight Cents ($0.27) per rentable square foot during calendar year 2003 (the Operating Costs Cap), provided that the Operating Costs Cap shall be prorated for calendar year 2003 by dividing the number of days in such calendar year following the Commencement Date by 365; (ii) if, at any time during the Term, Taxes for any Fiscal Year increase by more than three percent (3%) over the preceding Fiscal Year as a result of a change of ownership of all or any portion of the Project or new construction in the Project (a Prop 13 Event), then the Operating Costs Cap shall increase for such Fiscal Year by Tenants Proportionate Share of the amount that such increase in Taxes exceeds three percent (3%); and (iii) the Operating Costs Cap (as the same may have been increased by clause (ii) above) shall increase for calendar year 2004 and each subsequent calendar year by three percent (3%); plus
(b) Tenants Proportionate Share (as set forth in the Schedule) of Capital Costs and Utility Costs (as defined in Sections 2.C(4) and 2.C(5) below, respectively) for the applicable Fiscal Year (as defined in Section 2.C(6) below), plus
Operating Cost Share Rent shall be paid to Landlord monthly in advance in an estimated amount, as more particularly set forth in Sections 2.B through 2.D below. As used in this Lease, the term Rent means Base Rent, Operating Cost Share Rent and all other costs, expenses, liabilities, and amounts which Tenant is required to pay under this Lease (Additional Rent), including any interest for late payment. Tenants agreement to pay Rent is an independent covenant, with no right of setoff, deduction or counterclaim of any kind.
B. Payment of Operating Cost Share Rent.
1. Payment of Estimated Operating Cost Share Rent.
(a) Before the Commencement Date and on or before April 1 of each succeeding Fiscal Year, or as soon as reasonably possible thereafter, Landlord shall give Tenant notice of its estimate of the payments to be made pursuant to Sections 2.A(2) and 2.A(3) above for such Fiscal Year. Landlord may revise these estimates by written notice to Tenant whenever it obtains more accurate information, such as the final real estate tax assessment or tax rate for the Project, in which event subsequent monthly payments by Tenant for such Fiscal Year shall be based upon such revised estimate.
(b) Within ten (10) days after receiving Landlords notice regarding the original or revised estimate of the monthly payments to be made pursuant to Sections 2.A(2) and 2.A(3) above for a particular Fiscal Year, Tenant shall pay Landlord an amount equal to the product of such estimated monthly payments (as set forth in Landlords notice), multiplied by the number of months that have elapsed in the applicable Fiscal Year to the date of such payment including the current month, minus any payments on account thereof previously made by Tenant for the months elapsed. On the first day of each month thereafter, Tenant shall pay Landlord the estimated monthly payments as set forth in Landlords most recent notice, until a new estimate becomes applicable.
2. Correction of Operating Cost Share Rent. Within one hundred fifty (150) days after the close of each Fiscal Year or as soon after such 150-day period as practicable, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a statement of (a) Operating Costs, Utility Costs and Capital Costs for such Fiscal Year, and (b) the payments made by Tenant under Section 2.B(1) above for such Fiscal Year (the Annual Expense Statement). If, on the basis of any Annual Expense Statement, Tenant owes an amount that is less than the estimated payments previously made by Tenant for the applicable Fiscal Year, Landlord, at its election, shall either promptly refund the amount of the overpayment to Tenant or, if this Lease is still in effect, credit such excess against Tenants subsequent obligations to pay Operating Cost Share Rent hereunder. If, on the basis of any Annual Expense Statement, Tenant owes an amount that is more than the estimated payments previously made by Tenant for the applicable Fiscal Year, Tenant shall pay the deficiency to Landlord within twenty (20) days after Landlords delivery of such Annual Expense Statement to Tenant.
1. Included Operating Costs.
(a) Operating Costs means any expenses, costs and disbursements of any kind other than Utility Costs and Capital Costs, paid or incurred by Landlord in connection with the management, maintenance, operation, insurance (including the related deductibles), repair and other related activities in connection with any part of the Project and of the personal property, fixtures, machinery, equipment, systems and apparatus used in connection therewith, including, without limitation, Taxes and the cost of providing those services required to be furnished by Landlord under this Lease.
(b) If the Project contains more than one building, then Operating Costs shall include (i) all Operating Costs fairly allocable to the Building, and (ii) a proportionate share (based on the gross rentable area of the Building as a percentage of the gross rentable area of all of the buildings in the Project) of all Operating Costs which relate to the Project in general and are not fairly allocable to any one building in the Project.
(c) If the Project is not fully occupied during any portion of any Fiscal Year, Landlord may adjust (an Equitable Adjustment) Operating Costs to equal what would have been incurred by Landlord had the Project been fully occupied. This Equitable Adjustment shall apply only to Operating Costs which are variable and therefore increase as occupancy of the Project increases. Landlord may incorporate the Equitable Adjustment in its estimates of Operating Costs.
(d) If any tenant of the Project contracts directly with Landlord or a third party for any Utilities or services for which Tenant pays Landlord pursuant to Section 2.A(2) above, the total costs of such Utilities or services for the Project shall be grossed up to reflect what those costs would have been had such tenant(s) not directly contracted for such Utilities or services.
2. Excluded Operating Costs. Operating Costs shall not include:
(a) costs of installing leasehold improvements for tenants or occupants or prospective tenants or occupants of the Project;
(b) costs of capital improvements other than Included Capital Items;
(c) interest and principal payments on mortgages or any other debt costs (except as provided in Section 2.C(1) above with regard to Included Capital Items), or rental payments on any ground lease of the Project;
(d) real estate brokers leasing commissions;
(e) legal fees, space planner fees and advertising expenses incurred with regard to leasing the Project or portions thereof;
(f) legal expenses incurred in connection with disputes with tenants that solely pertain to the particular tenant or its premises (as opposed to disputes with other tenants that pertain to tenants generally or the Building, or disputes where the tenants of the Building would receive benefits if Landlord prevails, including, without limitation, disputes in connection with attempts by Landlord to enforce rules or regulations applicable to all tenants of the Building);
(g) any cost or expenditure for which Landlord is reimbursed, by insurance proceeds or otherwise, except by Operating Cost Share Rent;
(h) the cost of any service furnished to any office tenant of the Project which Landlord does not make available to Tenant;
(i) depreciation (except on any Included Capital Items);
(j) franchise or income taxes imposed upon Landlord, except to the extent imposed in lieu of all or any part of Taxes;
(k) legal and auditing fees incurred for the benefit of Landlord such as collecting delinquent rents, preparing tax returns and other financial statements, and audits other than those incurred in connection with the preparation of reports required pursuant to Section 2.B above;
(l) the wages of any employee for services not related directly to the management, maintenance, operation and repair of the Project;
(m) management fees in excess of the greater of (i) three percent (3%) of the annual gross revenues for the Project adjusted to reflect a one hundred percent (100%) occupancy of the Project with tenants paying rent at Landlords quoted rates, or (ii) those charged by landlords of comparable buildings in the vicinity of the Project; and
(n) fines, penalties and interest incurred by Landlord for late payment by Landlord or violations of law.
(a) Taxes means any and all taxes, assessments and charges of any kind, general or special, ordinary or extraordinary, levied against the Project, which Landlord shall pay or become obligated to pay in connection with the ownership, leasing, renting, management, use, occupancy, control or operation of the Project or of the personal property, fixtures, machinery, equipment, systems and apparatus used in connection therewith. Taxes shall include real estate taxes, personal property taxes, sewer rents, water rents, special or general assessments, transit taxes, ad valorem taxes, and any tax levied on the rents hereunder or the interest of Landlord under this Lease (the Rent Tax). Taxes shall also include all fees and other costs and expenses paid by Landlord in reviewing any Taxes and in seeking a refund or reduction of any Taxes, whether or not the Landlord is ultimately successful. Taxes shall also include any assessments or fees paid to any business park owners association, or similar entity, which are imposed against the Project pursuant to any Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) recorded against the Project and any installments of principal and interest required to pay any existing or future general or special assessments for public improvements, services or benefits, and any increases resulting from reassessments imposed in connection with any change in ownership or new construction.
(b) For any year, the amount to be included in Taxes (i) from taxes or assessments payable in installments, shall be the amount of the installments (with any interest) due and payable during such year, and (ii) from all other Taxes, shall at Landlords election be the amount accrued, assessed, or otherwise imposed for such year or the amount due and payable in such year. Any refund or other adjustment to any Taxes by the taxing authority, shall apply during the year in which the adjustment is made. Taxes shall not include any net income (except Rent Tax), capital, stock, succession, transfer, franchise, gift, estate or inheritance tax, except to the extent that such tax shall be imposed in lieu of any portion of Taxes.
4. Utility Costs.
(a) Utility Costs means the cost of all electricity, water, gas, sewers, oil and other utilities (collectively, Utilities), including any surcharges imposed, serving the Project or any part thereof (but excluding the cost of electricity directly billed to Tenant or other tenants in the Project), and any amounts, taxes, charges, surcharges, assessments or impositions levied, assessed or imposed upon the Project or any part thereof, or upon Tenants use and occupancy thereof, as a result of any rationing of Utilities services or restriction on the use of Utilities affecting the Project or any part thereof, together with all expenses, costs and disbursements paid or incurred by Landlord in connection with the maintenance and repair of the Building Systems (as defined in Section 3.C(1) below).
(b) If the Project contains more than one building, then Utility Costs shall include (i) all Utility Costs fairly allocable to the Building, and (ii) a proportionate share (based on the gross rentable area of the Building as a percentage of the gross rentable area of all of the buildings in the Project) of all Utility Costs which relate to the Project in general and are not fairly allocable to any one building in the Project.
(c) If the Project is not fully occupied during any portion of any Fiscal Year, Landlord may adjust Utility Costs to equal what would have been incurred by Landlord had the Project been fully occupied. Landlord may incorporate such adjustment in its estimates of Utility Costs hereunder.
(d) If any tenant of the Project contracts directly with Landlord or a third party for electricity or any other Utilities for which Tenant pays Landlord pursuant to Section 2.A(2) above, the total costs of such Utilities services for the Project shall be grossed up to reflect what those costs would have been had such tenant(s) not directly contracted for such services.
5. Capital Costs.
(a) Capital Costs means the costs of any capital improvements made which are intended to reduce Operating Costs or improve safety, and those made to keep the Project in compliance with Governmental Requirements applicable from time to time or to repair or replace existing capital improvements, facilities and equipment within the Project, such as the roof membrane and resurfacing of the parking areas (collectively, Included Capital Items); provided, that the costs of any Included Capital Item shall be amortized by Landlord, together with an amount equal to interest at ten percent (10%) per annum, over the estimated useful life of such item and such amortized costs are only included in Operating Costs for that portion of the useful life of the Included Capital Item which falls within the Term, unless the cost of the Included Capital Item is less than Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) in which case it shall be expensed in the year in which it was incurred.
(b) If the Project contains more than one building, then Capital Costs shall include (i) all Capital Costs fairly allocable to the Building, and (ii) a proportionate share (based on the gross rentable area of the Building as a percentage of the gross rentable area of all of the buildings in the Project) of all Capital Costs which relate to the Project in general and are not fairly allocable to any one building in the Project.
6. Fiscal Year. Fiscal Year means each calendar year during which any portion of the Term occurs (e.g., the first Fiscal Year shall be the calendar year during which the Commencement Date occurs).
D. Computation of Base Rent and Rent Adjustments.
1. Prorations. If (a) the Commencement Date is a date other than January 1, (b) the Termination Date is a date other than December 31, (c) this Lease terminates early, or (d) the size of the Premises increases or decreases, then in each such event, the Base Rent and the Operating Cost Share Rent shall be equitably adjusted to reflect such event on a basis reasonably determined by Landlord to be consistent with the principles underlying the provisions of this Section 2.
2. Interest Rate. Any sum due from Tenant to Landlord not paid when due shall bear interest from the date due until paid at the lesser of ten percent (10%) per annum or the maximum rate permitted by law (the Interest Rate).
3. Rent Adjustments. The square footage of the Premises and the Building set forth in the Schedule are conclusively deemed to be the actual square footage thereof, without regard to any subsequent remeasurement of the Premises or the Building. If any Operating Cost paid in one Fiscal Year relates to more than one Fiscal Year, Landlord may proportionately allocate such Operating Cost among the related Fiscal Years.
4. Books and Records. Landlord shall maintain on a consistent basis books and records reflecting the Operating Costs, Utility Costs and Capital Costs in accordance with sound accounting and management practices. Tenant, through its employees or a certified public accountant working on a non-contingency fee basis, shall have the right to inspect Landlords records at Landlords applicable local office or other location designated by Landlord upon at least seventy-two (72) hours prior notice during normal business hours during the ninety (90) days following Landlords delivery of the Annual Expense Statement to Tenant. The results of any such inspection shall be kept strictly confidential by Tenant and its agents, and Tenant and its certified public accountant must agree, in their contract for such services, to such confidentiality restrictions and shall specifically agree that the results shall not be made available to any other tenant of the Project (and in connection with the foregoing, prior to exercising its rights hereunder, Tenant and its agents shall sign a confidentiality agreement acceptable to Landlord). Unless Tenant sends to Landlord any written exception to an Annual Expense Statement within six (6) months following Landlords delivery of the Annual Expense Statement to Tenant, such Annual Expense Statement shall be deemed final and accepted by Tenant and Tenant waives any other rights pursuant to applicable law to inspect Landlords books and records and/or to contest the amount of Operating Costs, Utility Costs and/or Capital Costs due hereunder. Tenant shall pay the amount shown on any Annual Expense Statement in the manner prescribed in this Lease, whether or not Tenant takes any such written exception, without any prejudice to such exception. If Tenant makes a timely exception, Landlord and Tenant shall use good faith efforts to resolve Tenants claim; provided, however, that if Tenants claim is not resolved within thirty (30) days after it is furnished to Landlord, Landlord shall cause an independent certified public accountant selected by Landlord (and subject to Tenants reasonable approval) to issue a final and conclusive resolution of Tenants exception. Tenant shall pay the cost of such certification unless Landlords original determination of annual Operating Costs, Utility Costs and Capital Costs overstated the amounts thereof, in the aggregate, by more than five percent (5%), in which event Landlord shall pay the cost of such certification and will not include such cost in any Operating Costs a share of which is payable by Tenant.
5. Miscellaneous. So long as Tenant is in default of any monetary obligation under this Lease, Tenant shall not be entitled to any refund of any amount from Landlord. If this Lease is terminated for any reason prior to the annual determination of Operating Cost Share Rent, either party shall pay the full amount due to the other within fifteen (15) days after Landlords notice to Tenant of the amount when it is determined. Landlord may commingle any payments made with respect to Operating Cost Share Rent, without payment of interest.
E. Additional Rent Upon Default by Tenant. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge that to induce Tenant to enter into this Lease, and in consideration of Tenants agreement to perform all of the terms, covenants and conditions to be performed by Tenant under this Lease, as and when performance is due during the Term, Landlord has incurred (or will
incur) significant costs, including, without limitation, the following: (i) expenditures incurred in connection with the performance of Landlords Work, (ii) commissions to Landlords and/or Tenants real estate broker, (iii) attorneys fees and related costs incurred and/or paid by Landlord in connection with the negotiation and preparation of this Lease, and/or (iv) the rent abatement granted to Tenant during the Early Occupancy Period and the period prior to the Rent Commencement Date (collectively, the Inducements). Landlord and Tenant further acknowledge that Landlord would not have granted the Inducements to Tenant but for Tenants agreement to perform all of the terms, covenants, conditions and agreements to be performed by it under this Lease for the entire Term, and that Landlords agreement to incur such expenditures and grant such concessions is, and shall remain, conditioned upon Tenants faithful performance of all of the terms, covenants, conditions and agreements to be performed by Tenant under this Lease for the entire Term. Accordingly, if a monetary default by Tenant shall occur hereunder (after any applicable notice and cure period), Landlord shall be relieved of any unfulfilled obligation to grant Inducements hereunder, or to incur further expenses in connection therewith, and Tenant shall pay, as liquidated damages for Landlords granting the Inducements and not as a penalty, within ten (10) days after the occurrence of the default, as Additional Rent, the unamortized amount of those Inducements incurred or granted prior to the date of the default (the Pre-Default Inducements). Landlord may or, at Tenants request, shall, after the occurrence of a default, forward a statement to Tenant setting forth the amount of the Pre-Default Inducements, but the failure to deliver such a statement shall not be or be deemed to be a waiver of the right to collect the Pre-Default Inducements or to extend the date upon which such amount shall be due and payable. For purposes of this Section 2.E, the unamortized amount of the Pre-Default Inducements shall equal the remaining principal component, measured on the date of the default, of a level-payment amortization over the initial Term of this Lease of a principal amount equal to the Pre-Default Inducements, including interest at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord agrees that it will seek to enforce its right to recover Pre-Default Inducements only in connection with a bankruptcy of Tenant where this Lease is rejected or deemed rejected under Section 362 of the Code.
3. PREPARATION AND CONDITION OF PREMISES; TENANTS POSSESSION; REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE.
A. Condition of Premises.
1. Except for Landlords Work and as provided in Section 3.A(2) below, Landlord is leasing the Premises to Tenant as is, without any obligation to alter, remodel, improve, repair or decorate any part of the Premises and without any express or implied representations or warranties of any kind, including, without limitation, any representation or warranty regarding the condition of the Premises, the Building or the Project or the suitability of any of the foregoing for the conduct of Tenants business.

Alternatively, Landlord may elect to perform all or some of the foregoing repairs and maintenance itself, at Tenants expense, to the Building Systems. Landlord may also perform any maintenance or repairs itself, at Tenants expense, to the extent Tenant fails to perform such maintenance or repairs as required herein. At the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, or Tenants right to possession, Tenant shall return the Premises to Landlord in the condition required under Section 14 below.
2. Landlords Obligations. Except as otherwise provided in Section 9 below, Landlord agrees to make all necessary repairs to (a) the structural parts of the Building, which structural parts include only the foundation and subflooring of the Building and the structural condition of the roof, the exterior walls of the Building (but excluding the interior surfaces of exterior walls and exterior and interior of all windows, doors, ceiling and plate glass, which shall be maintained and repaired by Tenant) and the structural components of any interior walls, (b) the roof membrane, and (c) the common areas of the Project and any Building Systems that do not exclusively serve the Premises, and to maintain the same in reasonably good order
and condition, subject to inclusion of the costs thereof in Operating Costs; provided, however, that subject to the provisions of Section 8.F below, any damage arising from the acts of Tenant or Tenants officers, employees, agents or authorized representatives shall be repaired by Landlord at Tenants sole expense, and Tenant shall pay Landlord, on demand, the cost of any such repair. Landlord may also, but shall not be required to, enter the Premises at all reasonable times to make such repairs, alterations, improvements or additions to the Premises or to the Project or to any equipment located in the Project as Landlord shall desire or deem necessary or as Landlord may be required to do by governmental or quasi-governmental authority or court order or decree. Subject to the provisions of Section 8.F below, the cost of any repairs made by Landlord on account of Tenants default, or on account of the misuse or neglect by Tenant or Tenants officers, employees, agents or authorized representatives anywhere in the Project, shall constitute Additional Rent payable by Tenant on demand. As a condition precedent to all of Landlords repair and maintenance obligations under this Lease, Tenant must have notified Landlord of the need of such repairs or maintenance. Tenant hereby waives any and all rights under and benefits of subsection 1 of Section 1932 and Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code and any similar or successor law, statute or ordinance now or hereafter in effect regarding Tenants right to make repairs and deduct the cost of such repairs from the Rent due under this Lease.
4. SERVICES AND UTILITIES. Tenant shall promptly pay, as the same become due, all charges for water, gas, electricity, telephone, sewer service, waste pick-up and any other utilities, materials and services furnished directly to or used by Tenant on or about the Premises during the Term, including, without limitation, (i) meter, use and/or connection fees, hook-up fees, or standby fees, and (ii) penalties for discontinued interrupted service. If any utility service is not separately metered to the Premises, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord, through Tenants payment of Utility Costs above, Tenants Proportionate Share of the cost of such utility service. However, (a) if Landlord reasonably determines that Tenant is using a disproportionate amount of any utility service (whether or not separately metered), then Landlord, at its election, may (1) periodically charge Tenant, as Additional Rent, a sum equal to Landlords reasonable estimate of the cost of Tenants excess use of such utility service, and/or (2) install, at Tenants expense, a separate meter to measure the utility service supplied to the Premises, and (b) if Landlord reasonably determines that Tenant is using a disproportionate share of the electrical capacity available for the Building or Project (i.e., electrical usage in excess of that which would typically be used for general office purposes), then, in addition to the foregoing, Landlord may install, at Tenants expense, additional equipment to increase the electrical capacity for the Building or Project to offset excess electrical usage by Tenant. Any interruption or cessation of utilities resulting from any causes, including any entry for repairs pursuant to this Lease, and any renovation, redecoration or rehabilitation of any area of the Project, shall not render Landlord liable for damages to either person or property or for interruption or loss to Tenants business, nor be construed as an eviction of Tenant, nor work an abatement of any portion of Rent, nor relieve Tenant from fulfillment of any covenant or agreement hereof; provided, however, that if (x) an interruption of the Project services prevents Tenant from occupying all or a material portion of the Premises for the Permitted Use for a period of at least five (5) consecutive days and (y) such interruption was caused by the sole active negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its agents or employees, then monthly Rent shall thereafter be proportionately abated during the period of such interruption. Nothing in this Section 4 shall limit the parties rights and obligations under Section 9 hereof, in the event of a casualty affecting the Building or Premises.
Landlord shall make commercially reasonable efforts to give Tenant at least forty-eight (48) hours prior written notice of any scheduled interruption in Project services to the Premises.
5. ALTERATIONS AND REPAIRS.
A. Landlords Consent and Conditions.
1. Except for Minor Alterations (as defined below), Tenant shall not make any improvements or alterations to the Premises (the Work) without in each instance submitting plans and specifications for the Work to Landlord and obtaining Landlords prior written consent. Tenant shall pay Landlords standard charge (or, if Landlord does not have a standard charge, then Landlords actual costs incurred) for review of all of the plans and all other items submitted by Tenant. Landlord will be deemed to be acting reasonably in withholding its consent for any Work which (a) impacts the base structural components or the Building Systems, (b) impacts any other tenants premises, (c) is visible from outside the Premises, or (d) would utilize building materials or equipment which are inconsistent with Landlords standard building materials and equipment for the Building.
2. Landlords approval shall not be required for Work on the interior of the Premises costing less than Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) per project (Minor Alterations), provided that (a) Landlord would not have the right to reasonably withhold consent to the Work pursuant to clauses (a) through (d) of Section 5.A(1) above; and (b) Tenant provides Landlord with written notice of such Minor Alteration, which shall include a copy of any governmental permits required to complete such Minor Alteration, prior to commencing construction of such Minor Alteration.
3. Tenant shall pay for the cost of all Work, including the cost of any and all approvals, permits, fees and other charges which may be required as a condition of performing such Work.
4. The following requirements shall apply to all Work:
(a) Prior to commencement, Tenant shall furnish to Landlord building permits, certificates of insurance satisfactory to Landlord, and, at Landlords request, security for payment of all costs if Landlord reasonably determines that such security is needed.
(b) Tenant shall perform all Work so as to maintain peace and harmony among other contractors serving the Project and shall avoid interference with other work to be performed or services to be rendered in the Project.
(c) The Work shall be performed in a good and workmanlike manner, meeting the standard for construction and quality of materials in the Building, and shall comply with all insurance requirements and all applicable laws, ordinances, regulations or requirements of the United States of America, the State of California, or the ordinances, regulations or requirements of the local municipal or county governing body or other lawful authorities having jurisdiction over the Project, including, without limitation, any such laws, ordinances, regulations or requirements relating to hazardous materials or substances, as those
terms are defined by applicable laws now or hereafter in effect (collectively, Governmental Requirements).
(d) Tenant shall perform all Work so as to minimize or prevent disruption to other tenants, and Tenant shall comply with all reasonable requests of Landlord in response to complaints from other tenants.
(e) Tenant shall perform all Work in compliance with any Policies, Rules and Procedures for Construction Projects which may be in effect at the time the Work is performed.
(f) All Work shall be performed only by contractors or mechanics approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided, however, that (i) Landlord may, in its sole discretion, specify engineers, general contractors, subcontractors, and architects to perform work affecting the Building Systems; and (ii) if Landlord consents to any Work that requires work to be performed outside the Premises, Landlord may elect to perform such work at Tenants expense.
(g) Tenant shall permit Landlord to (i) inspect all Work during the progress thereof, (ii) with respect to any Work described in clauses (a) through (d) of Section 5.A(1) above, supervise the Work, and (iii) require corrections of faulty construction or any material deviation from the plans for such Work as approved by Landlord; provided, however, that no such inspection shall be deemed to create any liability on the part of Landlord, or constitute a representation by Landlord or any person hired to perform such inspection that the work so inspected conforms with such plans or complies with any Governmental Requirements, and no such inspection shall give rise to a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, Landlords continuing right at any time or from time to time to require the correction of any faulty work or any material deviation from such plans.
(h) If Landlord supervises any portion of the Work as described in subparagraph (g) above, Landlord may charge a supervisory fee not to exceed three percent (3%) of labor, material, and all other costs of the Work which Landlord has the right to and does supervise to compensate Landlord for its review of plans and its management and supervision of the progress of the work.
(i) Upon completion, Tenant shall furnish Landlord with contractors affidavits and full and final statutory waivers of liens, as-built plans and specifications, and receipted bills covering all labor and materials, and all other close-out documentation related to the Work, including any other information required under any Policies, Rules and Procedures for Construction Projects which may be in effect at the time.
B. Repairs. If any part of the Building Systems shall be damaged during the performance of the Work, Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord, and Landlord may elect to repair such damage at Tenants expense. Alternatively, Landlord may require Tenant to repair such damage at Tenants sole expense using contractors approved by Landlord.
C. No Liens. Tenant has no authority to cause or permit any lien or encumbrance of any kind to affect Landlords interest in the Project; any such lien or
encumbrance shall attach to Tenants interest only. If any mechanics lien shall be filed or claim of lien made for work or materials furnished to Tenant, then Tenant shall at its expense within ten (10) days thereafter either discharge or contest the lien or claim. If Tenant contests the lien or claim, then Tenant shall (i) within such ten (10) day period, provide Landlord adequate security for the lien or claim, (ii) contest the lien or claim in good faith by appropriate proceedings that operate to stay its enforcement, and (iii) pay promptly any final adverse judgment entered in any such proceeding. If Tenant does not comply with these requirements, Landlord may discharge the lien or claim, and the amount paid, as well as attorneys fees and other expenses incurred by Landlord, shall constitute Additional Rent payable by Tenant on demand.
D. Ownership of Improvements. All Work as defined in this Section 5, partitions, related hardware and all other improvements and all fixtures, except trade fixtures, constructed in the Premises by either Landlord or Tenant, (i) shall become Landlords property upon installation without compensation to Tenant, unless Landlord consents otherwise in writing, and (ii) shall, at Landlords option, either (a) be surrendered to Landlord with the Premises at the termination of this Lease or of Tenants right to possession, or (b) be removed in accordance with Section 14 below (unless Landlord at the time it gives its consent to the performance of such construction expressly waives in writing the right to require such removal).
6. USE OF PREMISES.
A. Limitation on Use. Tenant shall use the Premises only for the Permitted Use stated in the Schedule and Tenant shall not use or permit the Premises or the Project to be used for any other purpose or purposes whatsoever without the prior written consent of Landlord, which may be withheld in Landlords sole discretion. Tenant shall not allow any use of the Premises which will negatively affect the cost of coverage of Landlords insurance on the Project. Tenant shall not allow any inflammable or explosive liquids or materials to be kept on the Premises. Tenant shall not allow any use of the Premises which would cause the value or utility of any part of the Premises to diminish or would interfere with any other tenant or with the operation of the Project by Landlord. Tenant shall not permit any nuisance or waste to occur in, on, or about the Project, or allow any offensive noise or odor in or around the Project. At the end of each business day, or more frequently if necessary, Tenant shall deposit all garbage and other trash (excluding any inflammable, explosive and/or hazardous materials) in trash bins or containers approved by Landlord in locations designated by Landlord from time to time. If any governmental authority shall deem the Premises to be a place of public accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or any other comparable law as a result of Tenants use, Tenant shall either modify its use to cause such authority to rescind its designation or be responsible for any alterations, structural or otherwise, required to be made to the Building or the Premises under such laws.
B. Signs. Tenant shall not place on any portion of the Premises any sign, placard, lettering, banner, displays, graphic, decor or other advertising or communicative material which is visible from the exterior of the Premises without Landlords prior written approval; provided, however, that Tenant shall have the right to install one (1) sign identifying Tenant on the rounded façade above the front door of the Premises. The material, typeface, graphic format and proportions of Tenants sign, as well as the precise location of such sign, shall
be subject to Landlords approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, and any approval required under Governmental Requirements. Any signs approved hereunder shall strictly conform to all Governmental Requirements, any CC&Rs recorded against the Project, and Landlords signage standards in effect at the time, and shall be installed and removed at Tenants expense. Tenant, at its sole expense, shall maintain such signs in good condition and repair during the Term. Prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant at its sole cost shall remove all of its exterior signage and repair any and all damage caused to the Building and/or Project (including and fading or discoloration) by such signs and/or the removal of such signs from the Building and/or Project.
C. Parking. Subject to the provisions of Item 13 of the Schedule, Tenant shall have the non-exclusive right to park in the Projects parking facilities in common with other tenants of the Project upon terms and conditions, as may from time to time be established by Landlord. Tenant agrees not to overburden the parking facilities (i.e., use more than the number of unassigned parking stalls indicated on the Schedule) and agrees to cooperate with Landlord and other tenants in the Project in the use of the parking facilities. Landlord reserves the right in its discretion to determine whether the parking facilities are becoming crowded and to allocate and assign parking passes among Tenant and the other tenants in the Project. Landlord shall have the right to charge Tenant the portion that Landlord deems allocable to Tenant of any charges (e.g., fees or taxes) imposed by the Regional Air Quality Control Board or other governmental or quasi-governmental agency in connection with the parking facilities (e.g., in connection with operation or use of the parking facilities). Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant, nor shall this Lease be affected, if any parking is impaired by (or if any parking charges are imposed as a result of) any moratorium, initiative, referendum, law, ordinance, regulation or order passed, issued or made by any governmental or quasi-governmental body. Tenants continued right to use the parking spaces is conditioned upon Tenant abiding by all rules and regulations which are prescribed from time to time for the orderly operation and use of the parking facility where the parking passes are located, including any sticker or other identification system established by Landlord, Tenants cooperation in seeing that Tenants employees and visitors also comply with such rules and regulations and Tenant not being in default under this Lease. Landlord specifically reserves the right to change the size, configuration, design, layout and all other aspects of the Project parking facility at any time and Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord may, without incurring any liability to Tenant and without any abatement of Rent under this Lease, from time to time, close-off or restrict access to the Project parking facility for purposes of permitting or facilitating any such construction, alteration or improvements. Landlord may delegate its responsibilities hereunder to a parking operator in which case such parking operator shall have all the rights of control attributed hereby to the Landlord. The parking passes rented by Tenant pursuant to this Section 6.C are provided to Tenant solely for use by Tenants own personnel and such passes may not be transferred, assigned, subleased or otherwise alienated by Tenant without Landlords prior approval.
D. Prohibition Against Use of Roof and Structure of Building.
1. Tenant shall be prohibited from using all or any portion of the roof of the Building or any portion of the structure of the Building during the Term of this Lease (or any extensions thereof) for any purposes (including without limitation for the installation, maintenance and repair of a satellite dish and/or other telecommunications equipment), without
Landlords prior written consent, which Landlord may withhold in its sole and absolute discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall grant Tenant with reasonable access to the roof of the Building as may be reasonably necessary to allow Tenant to perform its HVAC and other maintenance obligations hereunder, provided that such access shall be subject to any reasonable rules and restrictions that Landlord may impose from time to time. In addition, Tenant may, subject to Landlords reasonable prior written consent, use the roof for the installation of a non-revenue producing satellite dish to service Tenants business in the Premises. Landlord has made no representations or promise as to the suitability or effectiveness of any part of the roof for Tenants proposed use, or as to any Governmental Requirements applicable to Tenants proposed use.
2. Tenant shall submit to Landlord, with any request for consent of any rooftop equipment, plans and specifications therefor, which must include, without limitation, the design, size and features of the rooftop equipment and mounting structure, floor and power load requirements, cabling installations, the means of affixing or mounting the rooftop equipment, and the means of connecting the rooftop equipment to the Buildings electrical system and to the Premises. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that, if Landlord consents to Tenants use of any portion of the roof of the Building, such use shall be non-exclusive and subject to Landlords approval of location, plans and installation pursuant to Section 5 of this Lease and such rules and regulations as Landlord may prescribe, including, without limitation, with regard to (a) the location, size, type and methods of installation of the proposed rooftop equipment, (b) requirements to prevent electrical, electromagnetic, radio frequency or other interference with other telecommunication equipment on or about the Building, (c) rooftop space availability, (d) restrictions on penetration of the roof surface, (e) rooftop access rights, and (f) removal requirements upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
3. Nothing herein shall limit or restrict Landlords rights under Section 11.N, or require Landlord to obtain Tenants consent prior to exercising such rights.
7. GOVERNMENTAL REQUIREMENTS AND BUILDING RULES.
A. Compliance in Premises. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, (1) comply with all Governmental Requirements; with any occupancy certificate issued for the Premises; and with the provisions of all recorded documents affecting the Premises, insofar as any thereof relates to or affects the condition, use or occupancy of the Premises; and (2) take all proper and necessary action to cause the Premises, including any repairs, replacements, alterations and improvements thereto, to be maintained, constructed, used and occupied in compliance with applicable Governmental Requirements, including any applicable code and ADA requirements, whether or not such requirements are based on Tenants use of the Premises, and further to assume all responsibility to ensure the Premises continued compliance with all Governmental Requirements, including applicable code and ADA requirements, throughout the Term. Tenant shall be responsible, at its sole cost and expense, to make all alterations to the Premises as are required to comply with the governmental rules, regulations, requirements or standards described in this Section 7.A. The judgment of any court of competent jurisdiction or the admission of Tenant in any judicial action, regardless of whether Landlord is a party thereto, that Tenant has violated any of said governmental measures, shall be conclusive of that fact as between Landlord and Tenant.
B. Compliance in Common Areas. Subject to reimbursement as an Operating Cost as provided in Section 2 above, Landlord shall perform any work required under any applicable Governmental Requirements, including the ADA, to be performed in the common areas of the Project, except that Tenant shall be solely responsible for all such compliance work which is required as a result of Tenants use or activities or which relate to the initial Tenant Improvements or Tenants proposed alterations or repairs. With respect to any code compliance work required outside the Premises for which Tenant is responsible hereunder, Landlord shall have the right to perform such work, or require that Tenant perform such work with contractors, subcontractors, engineers and architects approved by Landlord; and if Landlord elects to perform such work outside the Premises, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of such work within ten (10) days following receipt of invoices therefor. Landlord makes no representations or warranties regarding whether the Project or the Premises complies with applicable Governmental Requirements as of the date of this Lease.
C. Rules and Regulations. Tenant shall also comply with all reasonable rules for the Project which may be established and amended from time to time by Landlord, so long as same do not materially diminish or burden Tenants rights under this Lease beyond what is set forth in the current Rules and Regulations attached hereto. The present rules and regulations are contained in Exhibit B. Failure by another tenant to comply with the rules or failure by Landlord to enforce them shall not relieve Tenant of its obligation to comply with the rules or make Landlord responsible to Tenant in any way. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to apply the rules and regulations uniformly with respect to Tenant and any other tenants in the Project under leases containing rules and regulations similar to this Lease. If Tenant performs alterations or repairs, Tenant shall comply with the provisions of Section 5 of this Lease.
8. WAIVER OF CLAIMS; INDEMNIFICATION; INSURANCE.
A. Waiver of Claims. Neither Landlord nor the other Indemnitees (as defined below) shall be liable to Tenant or to any Tenant Parties (as defined below), and Tenant waives all claims against Landlord and such other Indemnitees, for any injury to or death of any person or for loss of use of or damage to or destruction of property in or about the Premises or Project by or from any cause whatsoever, including without limitation, earthquake or earth movement, gas, fire, oil, electricity or leakage from the roof, walls, basement or other portion of the Premises or Project, except only, with respect to any Indemnitee, to the extent such injury, death or damage is caused by the sole active negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee and not covered by the insurance required to be carried by Tenant hereunder or except to the extent such limitation on liability is prohibited by law. The provisions of this Section 8.A shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease until all claims within the scope of this Section 8.A are fully, finally, and absolutely barred by the applicable statutes of limitations.
1. Tenant shall indemnify, protect, defend (by counsel reasonably satisfactory to Landlord) and hold harmless Landlord and its officers, directors, employees and agents (each, an Indemnitee and collectively, the Indemnitees), and each of them, against any and all obligations, losses, claims, actions (including remedial or enforcement actions of any kind and administrative or judicial proceedings, suits, orders or judgments), causes of action,
liabilities, penalties, damages (including consequential and punitive damages), costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys and consultants fees and expenses) (collectively, Claims) arising from any of the following, including, but not limited to, Claims brought by or on behalf of employees of Tenant, with respect to which Tenant waives, for the benefit of the Indemnitees, any immunity to which Tenant may be entitled under any workers compensation laws: (a) any cause in or on the Premises, or (b) any act or omission or negligence of Tenant or any person or entity claiming by or through Tenant (including any assignee or subtenant), or any of their respective members, partners, employees, contractors, agents, customers, visitors, licensees or other persons in or about the Project by reason of Tenants occupancy of the Premises (each a Tenant Party and, collectively, Tenant Parties); provided, however, that, with respect to any Indemnitee, Tenants obligations under this Section shall be inapplicable to the extent such Claims arise solely from the active negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee, or to the extent such obligations are prohibited by applicable law.
2. Tenants duty to defend Landlord and the other Indemnitees under this Section 8.B is separate and independent of Tenants duty to indemnify the Indemnitees. The duty to defend includes claims for which the Indemnitees may be liable without fault or strictly liable. The duty to defend applies regardless of whether the issues of negligence, liability, fault, default, or other obligation on the part of Tenant Parties have been determined. The duty to defend applies immediately, regardless of whether any Indemnitees have paid any sums or incurred any detriment arising out of or relating (directly or indirectly) to any Claims. The parties expressly intend that Indemnitees shall be entitled to obtain summary adjudication or summary judgment regarding Tenants duty to defend the Indemnitees at any stage of any claim or suit within the scope of this Section.
3. Tenants obligations under this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease until all Claims within the scope of this Section 8.B are fully, finally, and absolutely barred by the applicable statutes of limitations.
C. Tenants Insurance. Tenant shall maintain insurance as follows, with such other terms, coverages and insurers, as Landlord shall reasonably require from time to time:
1. Commercial General Liability Insurance, with (a) Contractual Liability including the indemnification provisions contained in this Lease, (b) a severability of interest endorsement, (c) limits of not less than Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) combined single limit per occurrence and not less than Four Million Dollars ($4,000,000) in the aggregate for bodily injury, sickness or death, and property damage.
2. Property Insurance against All Risks of physical loss covering the replacement cost of all improvements, fixtures and personal property and business interruption.
3. Workers compensation or similar insurance in form and amounts required by law, and Employers Liability with not less than the following limits:
Tenants insurance shall be primary and not contributory to that carried by Landlord, its agents, or mortgagee. Landlord, and if any, Landlords building manager or agent, mortgagee and ground lessor shall be named as additional insureds under the insurance required of the Tenant in Section 8.C(1). The company or companies writing any insurance which Tenant is required to maintain under this Lease, as well as the form of such insurance, shall at all times be subject to Landlords approval, and any such company shall be licensed to do business in the state in which the Building is located. Such insurance companies shall have a A.M. Best rating of A VI or better.
4. Tenant shall cause any contractor of Tenant performing work on the Premises to maintain insurance as follows, with such other terms, coverages and insurers, as Landlord shall reasonably require from time to time:
(a) Commercial General Liability Insurance, including contractors liability coverage, contractual liability coverage, completed operations coverage, broad form property damage endorsement, and contractors protective liability coverage, to afford protection with limits, for each occurrence, of not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) with respect to personal injury, death or property damage.
(b) Workers compensation or similar insurance in form and amounts required by law, and Employers Liability with not less than the following limits:
Such insurance shall contain a waiver of subrogation provision in favor of Landlord and its agents. Tenants contractors insurance shall be primary and not contributory to that carried by Tenant, Landlord, their agents or mortgagees. Tenant and Landlord, and if any, Landlords building manager or agent, mortgagee or ground lessor shall be named as additional insured on Tenants contractors insurance policies.
D. Insurance Certificates. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord certificates evidencing all required insurance no later than five (5) days prior to the Commencement Date and each renewal date. Each certificate will provide for thirty (30) days prior written notice of cancellation to Landlord and Tenant.
E. Landlords Insurance. Subject to reimbursement as an Operating Cost in accordance with the provisions of Section 2 hereof, Landlord shall procure and maintain in effect throughout the Term of this Lease commercial general liability insurance, property insurance and/or such other types of insurance as Landlord reasonably deems necessary or advisable to
carry. Such coverages shall be in such amounts, from such companies and on such other terms and conditions as Landlord may from time to time reasonably determine, and Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to change, cancel, decrease or increase any insurance coverages in respect of the Building, add additional forms of insurance as Landlord shall deem reasonably necessary, and/or obtain umbrella or other policies covering both the Building and other assets owned by or associated with Landlord or its affiliates, in which event the cost thereof shall be equitably allocated.
F. Waiver of Subrogation. Landlord and Tenant hereby waive and release any and all rights of recovery against the other party, including officers, employees, agents and authorized representatives (whether in contract or tort) of such other party, that arise or result from any and all loss of or damage to any property of the waiving party located within or constituting part of the Building, including the Premises, to the extent of amounts payable under a standard ISO Commercial Property insurance policy, or such additional property coverage as the waiving party may carry (with a commercially reasonable deductible), whether or not the party suffering the loss or damage actually carries any insurance, recovers under any insurance or self-insures the loss or damage. Each party shall have their property insurance policies issued in such form as to waive any right of subrogation as might otherwise exist. This mutual waiver is in addition to any other waiver or release contained in this Lease.
9. FIRE AND OTHER CASUALTY.
A. Termination. If a fire or other casualty causes damage to the Building or the Premises, and sufficient insurance proceeds will be available to Landlord to cover the cost of any restoration to the Building and Premises, Landlord shall engage a registered architect to estimate, within one (1) month of the casualty, to both Landlord and Tenant the amount of time needed to restore the Building and the Premises to tenantability, using standard working methods without the payment of overtime and other premiums. If the time needed exceeds nine (9) months from the beginning of the restoration, or two (2) months therefrom if the restoration would begin during the last twenty-four (24) months of the Lease, then in the case of damage to the Premises, either Landlord or Tenant may terminate this Lease, and in the case of damage to the Building, Landlord may terminate this Lease, by notice to the other party within ten (10) days after the notifying partys receipt of the architects estimate. If sufficient insurance proceeds will not be available to Landlord to cover the cost of any restoration to the Building or the Premises, Landlord may terminate this Lease by written notice to Tenant. Any termination pursuant to this Section 9.A shall be effective thirty (30) days from the date of such termination notice and Rent shall be paid by Tenant to that date, with an abatement for any portion of the Premises which has been rendered untenantable as a result of the casualty (except to the extent that the casualty was caused by the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors, subtenants or assignees and Landlord does not receive insurance proceeds sufficient to cover the rent interruption during such period).
B. Restoration. If a casualty causes damage to the Building or the Premises but this Lease is not terminated for any reason, then subject to the rights of any mortgagees or ground lessors, Landlord shall obtain the applicable insurance proceeds and diligently restore the Building and the Premises subject to current Governmental Requirements. Landlords obligation, should it elect or be obligated to repair or rebuild, shall be limited to the basic
Premises as demised and delivered to Tenant on the Commencement Date, building-standard tenant improvements, or the basic Building, as the case may be, and Tenant shall, at Tenants expense, replace or fully repair damaged improvements made pursuant to Section 5 hereof, any tenant improvements in excess of the building standard (except as may have been demised and delivered to Tenant on the Commencement Date), personal property and fixtures. Rent shall be abated on a per diem basis during the restoration for any portion of the Premises which is untenantable, except to the extent that the casualty was caused by the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors, subtenants or assignees and Landlord does not receive insurance proceeds sufficient to cover the rent interruption during such period. Tenant shall not be entitled to any compensation or damages from Landlord for loss of the use of the Premises, damage to Tenants personal property and trade fixtures or any inconvenience occasioned by such damage, repair or restoration. Tenant hereby waives the provisions of Section 1932, Subdivision 2, and Section 1933, Subdivision 4, of the California Civil Code, and the provisions of any similar law hereinafter enacted.
10. EMINENT DOMAIN. If a part of the Project is taken by eminent domain or deed in lieu thereof which is so substantial that the Premises cannot reasonably be used by Tenant for the operation of its business, then either party may terminate this Lease effective as of the date of the taking. If any substantial portion of the Project is taken without affecting the Premises, then Landlord may terminate this Lease as of the date of such taking; provided, however, that Landlord shall exercise its right to terminate this Lease under this sentence only if it terminates the leases of all tenants similarly affected by the taking and with respect to which Landlord has a comparable termination right. Rent shall abate from the date of the taking in proportion to any part of the Premises taken. The entire award for a taking of any kind shall be paid to Landlord, and Tenant shall have no right to share in the award. All obligations accrued to the date of the taking shall be performed by the party liable to perform said obligations, as set forth herein. Tenant hereby waives any and all rights it might otherwise have pursuant to Section 1265.130 of The California Code of Civil Procedure.
11. RIGHTS RESERVED TO LANDLORD.
Landlord may exercise at any time any of the following rights respecting the operation of the Project without liability to Tenant of any kind:
A. Name. To change the name of the Building or the Project, or the street address of the Building or the suite number(s) of the Premises.
B. Signs. To install, modify and/or maintain any signs on the exterior and in the interior of the Building or on the Project, and, subject to Section 6.B above, to approve at its reasonable discretion, prior to installation, any of Tenants signs in the Premises visible from the common areas or the exterior of the Building.
C. Window Treatments. To approve, at its discretion, prior to installation, any shades, blinds, ventilators or window treatments of any kind, as well as any lighting within the Premises that may be visible from the exterior of the Building or any interior common area.
D. Keys. To retain and use, subject to Section 11.E below, passkeys to enter the Premises or any door within the Premises. Tenant shall not alter or add any lock or bolt.

F. Preparation for Reoccupancy. To decorate, remodel, repair, alter or otherwise prepare the Premises for reoccupancy at any time after Tenant abandons the Premises, without relieving Tenant of any obligation to pay Rent.

I. Intentionally omitted.
J. Use of Lockbox. To designate a lockbox collection agent for collections of amounts due Landlord. In that case, the date of payment of Rent or other sums shall be the date of the agents receipt of such payment or the date of actual collection if payment is made in the form of a negotiable instrument thereafter dishonored upon presentment. However, Landlord may reject any payment for all purposes as of the date of receipt or actual collection by mailing to Tenant within a reasonable time after such receipt or collection a check equal to the amount sent by Tenant.
K. Repairs and Alterations. To make repairs or alterations to the Project and in doing so transport any required material through the Premises, to close entrances, doors, corridors, elevators and other facilities in the Project, to open any ceiling in the Premises, or to temporarily suspend services or use of common areas in the Building. Landlord may perform any such repairs or alterations during ordinary business hours, except that Tenant may require any work in the Premises to be done after business hours if Tenant pays Landlord for overtime and any other expenses incurred. Landlord may do or permit any work on any nearby building, land, street, alley or way.
L. Building Services. To install, use and maintain through the Premises, pipes, conduits, wires and ducts serving the Building, provided that such installation, use and maintenance does not unreasonably interfere with Tenants use of the Premises.

N. Other Actions. To take any other action which Landlord deems reasonable in connection with the operation, maintenance or preservation of the Building and the Project.
A. Tenants Default. Any of the following shall constitute a default by Tenant:
1. Rent Default. Tenant fails to pay any Rent and such failure continues for five (5) days or more following Landlords written notice of such failure;
2. Assignment/Sublease or Hazardous Substances Default. Tenant defaults (after the expiration of any applicable notice and cure period, or if none is specified, after ten (10) days written notice and opportunity to cure) in its obligations under Section 16 (Subordination), Section 17 (Assignment and Sublease), Section 19 (Estoppel Certificate) or Section 28 (Hazardous Substances);
3. Other Performance Default. Tenant fails to perform any other obligation to Landlord under this Lease, and such failure continues for twenty (20) days after written notice from Landlord or Landlords agent, except that if Tenant begins to cure its failure within the twenty (20) day period but cannot reasonably complete its cure within such period, then, so long as Tenant continues to diligently attempt to cure its failure, the twenty (20) day period shall be extended to ninety (90) days, or such lesser period as is reasonably necessary to complete the cure;
4. Credit Default. One of the following credit defaults occurs:
(a) Tenant (or any guarantor of Tenants obligations hereunder) commences any proceeding under any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or relief of debts, or seeks appointment of a receiver, trustee, custodian or other similar official for the Tenant (or the guarantor) or for any substantial part of its property, or any such proceeding is commenced against Tenant (or the guarantor) and either remains undismissed for a period of thirty (30) days or results in the entry of an order for relief against Tenant (or the guarantor) which is not fully stayed within seven (7) days after entry; or
(b) Any third party obtains a levy or attachment under process of law against Tenants leasehold interest.
5. Vacation or Abandonment Default. Tenant vacates or abandons the Premises.
Tenant acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 12, any notices required to be given by Landlord under this Section 12 shall, in each case, be in lieu of, and not in addition to, any notice required under Section 1161 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, and shall be deemed to satisfy the requirement, if any, that notice be given pursuant to such section, provided that the time and content of such notice otherwise satisfy the requirements of law.
B. Landlord Defaults. Landlord shall be in default hereunder if Landlord has not begun and pursued with reasonable diligence the cure of any failure of Landlord to meet its obligations hereunder within thirty (30) days after the receipt by Landlord of written notice from Tenant of the alleged failure to perform. Tenant hereby covenants that, prior to the exercise of any remedies relating to termination or rescission of the Lease, Tenant will give notice and a reasonable time to cure any default by Landlord to any holder of a mortgage or deed of trust encumbering Landlords interest in the Project of which Tenant has been given notice. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Landlord shall not be in default under this Lease to the extent Landlord is unable to perform any of its obligations on account of any prevention, delay, stoppage due to strikes, lockouts, inclement weather, labor disputes, inability to obtain labor, materials, fuels, energy or reasonable substitutes therefor, governmental restrictions, regulations, controls, actions or inaction, civil commotion, fire or other acts of god, national emergency, acts of war or terrorism or any other cause of any kind beyond the reasonable control of Landlord (except financial inability).
13. LANDLORD REMEDIES. UPON A DEFAULT, LANDLORD SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING REMEDIES, IN ADDITION TO ALL OTHER RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED BY LAW OR OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THIS LEASE, TO WHICH LANDLORD MAY RESORT CUMULATIVELY OR IN THE ALTERNATIVE:
A. Termination of Lease. Landlord may elect by notice to Tenant to terminate this Lease, in which event, Tenant shall immediately vacate the Premises and deliver possession to Landlord.
B. Civil Code Section 1951.4 Remedy. Even though Tenant has breached this Lease, this Lease shall continue in effect for so long as Landlord does not terminate Tenants right to possession, and Landlord shall have all of its rights and remedies, including the right, pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1951.4, to recover all rent as it becomes due under this Lease, if Tenant has the right to sublet or assign, subject only to reasonable limitations. Acts of maintenance or preservation or efforts to relet the Premises or the appointment of a receiver upon initiative of Landlord to protect Landlords interest under this Lease shall not constitute a termination of Tenants right to possession unless written notice of termination is given by Landlord to Tenant.
C. Lease Termination Damages. If Landlord elects to terminate this Lease, then this Lease shall terminate on the date for termination set forth in such notice. Tenant shall immediately vacate the Premises and deliver possession to Landlord, and Landlord may repossess the Premises and may, at Tenants sole cost, remove any of Tenants signs and any of its other property, without relinquishing its right to receive Rent or any other right against Tenant. On termination, Landlord has the right to recover from Tenant as damages:
1. The worth at the time of award of unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable which had been earned at the time of termination; plus
2. The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
3. The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent and other sums due and payable for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; plus
4. Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenants failure to perform Tenants obligations under this Lease, or which, in the ordinary course of things, would be likely to result therefrom, including, without limitation, any costs or expenses incurred by Landlord: (i) in retaking possession of the Premises; (ii) in maintaining, repairing, preserving, restoring, replacing, cleaning, altering or rehabilitating the Premises or any portion thereof, including such acts for reletting to a new tenant or tenants; (iii) for leasing commissions; or (iv) for any other costs necessary or appropriate to relet the Premises; plus
5. At Landlords election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by the laws of the State of California.
The worth at the time of award of the amounts referred to in Sections 13.C(1) and 13.C(2) is computed by allowing interest at the Interest Rate on the unpaid rent and other sums due and payable from the termination date through the date of award. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in Section 13.C(3) is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%). Tenant waives redemption or relief from forfeiture under California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 1174 and 1179, or under any other present or future law, if Tenant is evicted or Landlord takes possession of the Premises by reason of any default of Tenant hereunder.
D. Landlords Remedies Cumulative. All of Landlords remedies under this Lease shall be in addition to all other remedies Landlord may have at law or in equity, including, without limitation, the remedy described in California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (pursuant to which Landlord may continue this Lease in effect after Tenants breach and abandonment and recover rent as it becomes due if Tenant has the right to sublet or assign the Lease, subject to reasonable limitations). Waiver by Landlord of any breach of any obligation by Tenant shall be effective only if it is in writing, and shall not be deemed a waiver of any other breach, or any subsequent breach of the same obligation. The possession of Tenants funds, negotiation of Tenants negotiable instruments, or acceptance of Tenants payment by Landlord or its agents shall not constitute a waiver of any breach by Tenant, and if such possession, negotiation or acceptance occurs after Landlords notice to Tenant, or termination of this Lease or of Tenants right to possession, such possession, negotiation or acceptance shall not affect such notice or termination. Acceptance of payment by Landlord after commencement of a legal proceeding or
final judgment shall not affect such proceeding or judgment. Landlord may advance such monies and take such other actions for Tenants account as reasonably may be required to cure or mitigate any default by Tenant. Tenant shall immediately reimburse Landlord for any such advance, and such sums shall bear interest at the Interest Rate until paid.
E. WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY. EACH PARTY WAIVES TRIAL BY JURY IF ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING IS BROUGHT BY THE OTHER IN CONNECTION WITH THIS LEASE. EACH PARTY SHALL BRING ANY ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER IN CONNECTION WITH THIS LEASE IN A FEDERAL OR STATE COURT LOCATED IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, CONSENTS TO THE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS, AND WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO HAVE ANY PROCEEDING TRANSFERRED FROM SUCH COURTS ON THE GROUND OF IMPROPER VENUE OR INCONVENIENT FORUM. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 13.E SHALL SURVIVE THE EXPIRATION OR EARLIER TERMINATION OF THIS LEASE.
14. SURRENDER. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease for any reason, Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord in its condition existing as of the date Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant, normal wear and tear and damage by fire or other casualty excepted, with all interior walls repaired if marked or damaged, all carpets cleaned, all broken, marred or nonconforming acoustical ceiling tiles replaced, all windows washed, the plumbing and electrical systems and lighting in good order and repair, including replacement of any burned out or broken light bulbs or ballasts, the HVAC equipment serviced and repaired by a reputable and licensed service firm acceptable to Landlord, and all floors cleaned and waxed, all to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. Tenant shall remove from the Premises and the Project all of Tenants trade fixtures, furniture, moveable equipment and other personal property, and any Work which Landlord elects to be removed pursuant to Section 5.D, and shall restore the Premises to its condition prior to their installation, including, without limitation, repairing all damage caused by the installation or removal of any of the foregoing items. If Tenant does not timely remove such property, then Tenant shall be conclusively presumed to have, at Landlords election: (a) conveyed such property to Landlord without compensation or (b) abandoned such property, and Landlord may dispose of or store any part thereof in any manner at Tenants sole cost, without waiving Landlords right to claim from Tenant all expenses arising out of Tenants failure to remove the property, and without liability to Tenant or any other person. Landlord shall have no duty to be a bailee of any such personal property. If Landlord elects to consider such property abandoned, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for the costs of: (i) removal of any such Work or personal property, (ii) storage, transportation, and disposition of the same, and (iii) repair and restoration of the Premises, together with interest thereon at the Interest Rate from the date of expenditure by Landlord. In addition, if the Premises are not so surrendered at the termination of this Lease, Tenant shall indemnify Landlord against all loss or liability, including reasonable attorneys fees and costs, resulting from delay by Tenant in so surrendering the Premises.
15. HOLDOVER. Tenant shall have no right to holdover possession of the Premises after the expiration or termination of this Lease without Landlords prior written consent which Landlord may withhold in its sole and absolute discretion. If, however, Tenant retains possession of any part of the Premises after the Term, Tenant shall become a tenant at sufferance
only, for the entire Premises upon all of the terms of this Lease as might be applicable to such tenancy, except that Tenant shall pay an amount equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Base Rent and Operating Cost Share Rent payable by Tenant immediately prior to such holding over, computed on a monthly basis for each full or partial month Tenant remains in possession. Tenant shall also protect, defend, indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from and against all Claims resulting from such failure, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded upon such failure to surrender and any lost profits to Landlord resulting therefrom. No acceptance of Rent or other payments by Landlord under these holdover provisions shall operate as a waiver of Landlords right to regain possession or any other of Landlords remedies.
16. SUBORDINATION TO GROUND LEASES AND MORTGAGES.
1. This Lease shall be subordinate to any present or future ground lease or mortgage (each a Superior Interest) respecting the Project, and any amendments to such ground lease or mortgage, at the election of the ground lessor or mortgagee as the case may be (each a Security Holder), effected by notice to Tenant in the manner provided in this Lease. The subordination shall be effective upon such notice, but at the request of Landlord or such Security Holder, Tenant shall within ten (10) days after the request, execute and deliver to the requesting party any reasonable documents provided to evidence the subordination. Any mortgagee has the right, at its sole option, to subordinate its mortgage to the terms of this Lease, without notice to, nor the consent of, Tenant.
2. With respect to any present or future ground lease or mortgage to which this Lease is subordinate, Landlord shall, as a condition to such subordination, obtain from the Security Holder, for the benefit of Tenant, a non-disturbance agreement, in commercially reasonable form, that (a) except to the extent necessary to protect the Security Holder in the event of circumstances in which its security is impaired, will not effect an amendment to this Lease which materially increases Tenants obligations or materially diminishes Tenants rights hereunder, and (b) provides generally that as long as Tenant is not in default under this Lease, this Lease will not be terminated if such Security Holder (or any successor or assign thereof, including without limitation, any purchaser at a foreclosure sale and any transferee pursuant to a deed in lieu of foreclosure, and their successors and assigns) acquires title to the Project by reason of foreclosure proceedings, acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure, or termination of the leasehold interest of Landlord, provided that Tenant attorns to such Security Holder or other successor owner of the Project in accordance with its reasonable requirements. Tenant will bear all reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys fees) of the Security Holder of such Superior Interest in connection with obtaining the non-disturbance agreement.
B. Termination of Ground Lease or Foreclosure of Mortgage. If any ground lease is terminated or mortgage foreclosed or deed in lieu of foreclosure given and the ground lessor, mortgagee, or purchaser at a foreclosure sale shall thereby become the owner of the Project, Tenant shall attorn to such ground lessor or mortgagee or purchaser without any deduction or setoff by Tenant, and this Lease shall continue in effect as a direct lease between Tenant and such ground lessor, mortgagee or purchaser. The ground lessor or mortgagee or
purchaser shall be liable as Landlord only during the time such ground lessor or mortgagee or purchaser is the owner of the Project. At the request of Landlord, ground lessor or mortgagee, Tenant shall execute and deliver within ten (10) days after the request any document furnished by the requesting party to evidence Tenants agreement to attorn.
C. Security Deposit. Any ground lessor or mortgagee shall be responsible for the return of any security deposit by Tenant only to the extent the security deposit, if any, is received by such ground lessor or mortgagee.
D. Notice and Right to Cure. Tenant agrees to send by registered or certified mail to any ground lessor or mortgagee, identified in any notice from Landlord to Tenant, a copy of any notice of default sent by Tenant to Landlord. If Landlord fails to cure such default within the required time period under this Lease, but ground lessor or mortgagee begins to cure within ten (10) days after such period and proceeds diligently to complete such cure, then ground lessor or mortgagee shall have such additional time as is necessary to complete such cure, including any time necessary to obtain possession if possession is necessary to cure, and Tenant shall not begin to enforce its remedies relating to termination of this Lease, if any, so long as the cure is being diligently pursued.
E. Definitions. As used in this Section 16, mortgage shall include trust deed and deed of trust; mortgagee shall include trustee, beneficiary and the mortgagee of any ground lessee; and ground lessor, mortgagee, and purchaser at a foreclosure sale shall include, in each case, all of its successors and assigns, however remote.
17. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLEASE.
A. In General. Tenant shall not, without Landlords prior written consent, in each case: (i) make or allow any assignment or transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, of any part of Tenants interest in this Lease, (ii) sublet any part of the Premises, or (iii) permit anyone other than Tenant and its employees to occupy any part of the Premises (all of the foregoing are hereinafter sometimes referred to individually as a Transfer, and collectively as Transfers, any person to whom any Transfer is made or sought to be made is hereinafter sometimes referred to as a Transferee, and any person by whom any Transfer is made or sought to be made is hereinafter sometimes referred to as a Transferor). Tenant shall remain primarily liable for all of its obligations under this Lease, notwithstanding any Transfer. No consent granted by Landlord shall be deemed to be a consent to any subsequent Transfer. Tenant shall pay all of Landlords reasonable attorneys fees and reasonable other expenses (not to exceed $1,500, unless a dispute arises, in which event the provisions of Section 25.Z below shall apply) incurred in connection with any consent requested by Tenant or in considering any proposed Transfer. Any Transfer without Landlords prior written consent shall be void. Unless otherwise specified in this Lease, if Tenant shall assign this Lease or sublet or otherwise Transfer the Premises, or any portion thereof, any rights of Tenant to renew this Lease, to extend the Term or to lease additional space in the Project shall be extinguished thereby and will not be transferred to the Transferee, all such rights being personal to the Tenant named herein. In addition, Tenant shall not, without Landlords prior written consent, which Landlord may withhold in its sole discretion, mortgage, pledge or encumber this Lease, the term or estate hereby granted or any interest hereunder.
B. Landlords Consent. Landlord will not unreasonably withhold, delay, or condition its consent to any proposed Transfer. It shall be reasonable for Landlord to withhold its consent to any Transfer if (i) Tenant is in default under this Lease and the default will not be cured as a condition of the Transfer, (ii) the proposed Transferee is negotiating with Landlord to lease space in the Project at such time, or has negotiated with Landlord during the sixty (60) day period immediately preceding Tenants request for consent, (iii) the financial responsibility, nature of business, and character of the proposed Transferee are not all reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, (iv) in the reasonable judgment of Landlord the purpose for which the Transferee intends to use the Premises (or a portion thereof) is not in keeping with Landlords standards for the Building or are in violation of the terms of this Lease or any other leases in the Project, or (v) the proposed Transferee is a government entity. The foregoing shall not exclude any other reasonable basis for Landlord to withhold its consent.
C. Procedure. Tenant shall notify Landlord of any proposed Transfer at least twenty (20) days prior to its proposed effective date. The notice shall include the name and address of the proposed Transferee, its corporate affiliates in the case of a corporation and its partners in the case of a partnership, a description of the portion of the Premises that is subject to the Transfer (the Transfer Premises), a calculation of the Transfer Premium (as defined in Section 17.F below) payable in connection with the Transfer, an executed copy of the proposed Transfer agreement, and sufficient information to permit Landlord to determine the financial responsibility and character of the proposed Transferee (including, without limitation, the most recent financial statements for the proposed Transferee). As a condition to the effectiveness of any assignment of this Lease, the assignee shall execute and deliver to Landlord, at least fifteen (15) days prior to the effective date of the assignment, Landlords standard form of Consent to Assignment, providing for, among other things, an assumption of all of the obligations of Tenant under this Lease. As a condition to the effectiveness of any other Transfer, Transferee shall execute and deliver to Landlord, at least fifteen (15) days prior to the effective date of such Transfer, Landlords standard consent form, providing, among other things, (1) an assumption of all of the obligations of Tenant under this Lease to the extent applicable to the Transfer Premises (excluding the payment of Rent), (2) the Transferees obligation to indemnify Landlord and the other Indemnitees consistent with Tenants indemnification obligations in Section 8.B above, and (3) the Transferees agreement that any such Transfer shall be subordinate and subject to the provisions of this Lease, and if this Lease shall be terminated during the term of any such Transfer, Landlord shall have the right to: (a) treat such Transfer as cancelled and repossess the Transfer Premises by any lawful means, or (b) require that the Transferee attorn to and recognize Landlord as its landlord under any such Transfer. If Tenant shall default and fail to cure within the time permitted for cure under Section 12 above, Landlord is hereby irrevocably authorized, as Tenants agent and attorney-in-fact, to direct any Transferee to make all payments under or in connection with the Transfer directly to Landlord (which Landlord shall apply towards Tenants obligations under this Lease) until such default is cured.
D. Change of Management or Ownership. Any transfer of the direct or indirect power to affect the management or policies of Tenant or direct or indirect change in 50% or more of the ownership interest in Tenant shall constitute an assignment of this Lease.
E. Permitted Transfers. If Tenant is not then in default of this Lease, Tenant may assign this Lease or sublet any portion of the Premises (hereinafter collectively referred to
as a Permitted Transfer) to (i) a parent or subsidiary of Tenant, or an entity under common control with Tenant, (ii) any successor entity to Tenant by way of merger, consolidation or other non-bankruptcy corporate reorganization, or (iii) an entity which acquires all or substantially all of Tenants assets (collectively, Permitted Transferees, and, individually, a Permitted Transferee); provided that (1) at least ten (10) business days prior to the Transfer, Tenant notifies Landlord of such Transfer, and supplies Landlord with any documents or information reasonably requested by Landlord regarding such Transfer or Permitted Transferee, including, but not limited to, copies of the sublease or instrument of assignment and copies of documents establishing to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord that the transaction in question is one permitted under this Section 17.E, (2) at least ten (10) business days prior to the Transfer, Tenant furnishes Landlord with a written document executed by the proposed Permitted Transferee in which such entity assumes all of Tenants obligations under this Lease with respect to the Transfer Premises, (3) in the case of a Transfer pursuant to clause (ii) above, the successor entity must have a tangible net worth at the time of the Transfer (i.e., not including intangible assets in the calculation, such as goodwill, patents, copyrights, and trademarks) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (Net Worth) that is at least equal to the Net Worth of Tenant immediately prior to such Transfer, and (4) any such proposed Transfer is made for a good faith operating business purpose and not, whether in a single transaction or in a series of transactions, be entered into as a subterfuge to evade the obligations and restrictions relating to Transfers set forth in this Section 17.
F. Transfer Premium.
1. If Landlord consents to a Transfer, as a condition thereto which the parties hereby agree is reasonable, Landlord shall be entitled to receive, as Additional Rent hereunder, fifty percent (50%) of any Transfer Premium derived from such Transfer. As used herein, the term Transfer Premium means (a) (i) in the case of an assignment, any consideration (including, without limitation, payment for leasehold improvements) paid by the assignee on account of such assignment, and (ii) in the case of any other Transfer, all rent, additional rent or other consideration paid by the Transferee to the Transferor pursuant to such Transfer in excess of the base rent and additional rent payable by such Transferor during the term of the Transfer on a per rentable square foot basis, in either case minus (b) the cost of any leasehold improvements or improvements allowance incurred or granted by Tenant in connection with the Transfer, up to a maximum of Five Dollars ($5.00) per rentable square foot, any brokerage commissions (not to exceed commissions typically paid in the market at the time of such subletting or assignment) and reasonable attorneys fees paid by Transferor in connection with the Transfer (Recoverable Expenses), unless the deduction of such Recoverable Expenses is waived by Transferor pursuant to Section 17.F(2) below. For purposes of calculating the Transfer Premium in connection with a sublease, Recoverable Expenses shall be deducted on an amortized basis, without interest, over the term of the sublease. Payment of the portion of the Transfer Premium due Landlord hereunder shall be a joint and several obligation of Tenant and the Transferee, and shall be made to Landlord as follows: (x) in the case of an assignment, the Transferor shall pay the portion of the Transfer Premium due to Landlord within ten (10) days after the Transferor receives the consideration described in clause (a)(i) above; and (y) in the case of any other Transfer, on the first day of each month during the term of the Transfer, the Transferee shall pay directly to Landlord fifty percent (50%) of the amount by which the rent, additional rent or other consideration due from the Transferee for such month exceeds (1) the
base rent and additional rent payable by the applicable Transferor for said month which is allocable to the Transfer Premises, plus (2) the amortized amount of Recoverable Expenses allocated to such month, unless such Recoverable Expenses are waived by Transferor pursuant to Section 17.F(2).
2. Within ninety (90) days after the effective date of any Transfer, Transferor shall provide Landlord a written statement, together with reasonably detailed invoices therefor, certifying the total amount of Recoverable Expenses in connection with any Transfer and Tenants calculation of the Transfer Premium. If Transferor fails to provide such statement and invoices to Landlord within the ninety (90) day period, Transferor shall be deemed to have waived the deduction of Recoverable Expenses in determining the Transfer Premium. Landlord or its authorized representatives shall have the right at all reasonable times to audit the books, records and papers of Tenant, and any other Transferor, relating to a Transfer, and shall have the right to make copies thereof. If the Transfer Premium respecting any Transfer shall be found to be understated, Tenant shall within ten (10) days after demand pay the deficiency, and, if understated by more than five percent (5%), Tenant shall pay Landlords costs of such audit.
G. Recapture. In the case of a proposed assignment, sublease or other Transfer of more than fifty percent (50%) of the rentable square feet of the Premises which will be effective at any time during the final twelve (12) months of the Term (except a Permitted Transfer pursuant to Section 17.E above), Landlord may terminate this Lease as to the Transfer Premises by giving Tenant written notice (the Recapture Notice) within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt of the proposed fully executed Transfer agreement submitted by Tenant for Landlords consent. Such termination shall be effective as of the termination date set forth in Landlords Recapture Notice, and all obligations of Landlord and Tenant under this Lease as to such terminated space shall expire as of such termination date, except those that expressly survive any termination of this Lease. In the event of a recapture by Landlord, if this Lease shall be canceled with respect to less than the entire Premises, the Rent reserved herein shall be prorated on the basis of the number of rentable square feet retained by Tenant in proportion to the number of rentable square feet contained in the Premises, and this Lease as so amended shall continue thereafter in full force and effect, and upon request of either party, the parties shall execute written confirmation of the same.
H. Tenant Remedies. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, if Tenant claims that Landlord has unreasonably withheld or delayed its consent under this Section 17 or otherwise has breached or acted unreasonably under this Section 17, Tenants sole remedy shall be declaratory judgment and an injunction for the relief sought or monetary damages. Tenant hereby waives all other remedies, including, without limitation, any right provided under California Civil Code Section 1995.310 or other applicable laws to terminate this Lease.
18. CONVEYANCE BY LANDLORD. If Landlord shall at any time transfer its interest in the Project or this Lease, Landlord shall be released of any obligations occurring after such transfer, except the obligation to return to Tenant any security deposit not delivered to its transferee, and Tenant shall look solely to Landlords successors for performance of such obligations. This Lease shall not be affected by any such transfer.
19. ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE. Each party shall, within ten (10) days after receiving a request from the other party, execute, acknowledge in recordable form, and deliver to the other party or its designee a certificate stating, subject to a specific statement of any applicable exceptions, that this Lease as amended to date is in full force and effect, that Tenant is paying Rent and other charges on a current basis, and that to the best of the knowledge of the certifying party, the other party has committed no uncured defaults and has no offsets or claims. The certifying party may also be required to state the date of commencement of payment of Rent, the Commencement Date, the Termination Date, the Base Rent, the current Operating Cost Share Rent estimates, the status of any improvements required to be completed by Landlord, the amount of any security deposit, and such other matters as may be reasonably requested. If Tenant fails to deliver a certificate within the ten (10) day period set forth above, and such failure continues for an additional three (3) days after Landlords delivery of a notice of such failure to Tenant, then Tenants failure shall constitute an acknowledgment by Tenant that the statements included in the estoppel certificate are true and correct, without exception. Tenants failure to execute or deliver an estoppel certificate or other document or instrument required under this Section 19 in a timely manner shall be a material breach of this Lease.
20. LEASE DEPOSIT.
A. Tenant shall deposit with Landlord (1) on the date Tenant executes and delivers this Lease, the cash sum set forth in the Schedule for Prepaid Rent, and (2) on the Commencement Date, the cash sum set forth in the Schedule for Security Deposit (collectively, the Lease Deposit). The Prepaid Rent shall be applied by Landlord against Base Rent for the first full calendar month following the Rent Commencement Date. The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as security for the faithful performance by Tenant of all its obligations under this Lease. Tenant agrees that, if Tenant fails to pay any Rent, or otherwise defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to), and without prejudice to any other remedy available to Landlord, use, apply or retain all or any portion of the Security Deposit for the payment of any Rent in default or for the payment of any other sum to which Landlord may become obligated by reason of Tenants default, or to compensate Landlord for any loss or damage which Landlord may suffer thereby, including, without limitation, prospective damages and damages recoverable pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1951.2. Tenant waives the provisions of California Civil Code Section 1950.7, and all other provisions of law now in force or that become in force after the date of execution of this Lease, that restrict the use or application of the Security Deposit by Landlord. If Landlord uses or applies all or any portion of the Security Deposit as provided above, Tenant shall, within three (3) days after demand therefor, deposit cash with Landlord in an amount sufficient to restore the Security Deposit to the full amount thereof, and Tenants failure to do so shall, at Landlords option, be a default under this Lease with no opportunity to cure. If Tenant performs all of Tenants obligations hereunder, the Security Deposit, or so much thereof as has not theretofore been applied by Landlord, shall be returned to Tenant (or, at Landlords option, to the last assignee, if any, of Tenants interest hereunder) within thirty (30) days following the expiration of the Term and after Tenant has vacated the Premises; provided, however, that if this Lease is terminated by Landlord pursuant to Section 13 above, or by Tenant in a bankruptcy proceeding pursuant to 11 U.S.C. §365, Landlord may retain the Security Deposit and apply the same against its damages recoverable pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1951.2. Landlord shall not be deemed to hold the Security Deposit in trust nor be required to keep the Security Deposit
separate from its general funds, and Tenant shall not be entitled to any interest on the Security Deposit. The Security Deposit shall not be construed as an advance payment of Rent nor liquidated damages, and if Landlords claims hereunder exceed the Security Deposit, Tenant shall remain liable for the balance of such claims.
B. If Landlord transfers its interest in the Project or this Lease, Landlord may transfer the Security Deposit to its transferee.

26. UNRELATED BUSINESS INCOME. If Landlord is advised by its counsel at any time that any part of the payments by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease may be characterized as unrelated business income under the United States Internal Revenue Code and its regulations, then Tenant shall enter into any amendment proposed by Landlord to avoid such income, so long as the amendment does not require Tenant to make more payments or accept fewer services from Landlord, than this Lease provides, or materially increase Tenants obligations, or otherwise materially impair Tenants rights under this Lease.
27. BUILDING RENOVATIONS. It is specifically understood and agreed that Landlord has made no representation or warranty to Tenant and has no obligation and has made no promises to alter, remodel, improve, renovate, repair or decorate the Premises, Building, or any part thereof and that no representations respecting the condition of the Premises or the Building have been made by Landlord to Tenant except as specifically set forth herein or in the Tenant Improvement Agreement. However, Tenant hereby acknowledges that Landlord may during the Lease Term renovate, improve, alter, or modify (collectively, the Renovations) the Project and/or the Building including without limitation the parking structure, common areas, systems and equipment, roof, and structural portions of the same, which Renovations may include, without limitation, (i) installing sprinklers in the Building common areas and tenant spaces, (ii) modifying the common areas and tenant spaces to comply with Governmental Requirements, including regulations relating to the physically disabled, seismic conditions, and building safety and security, and (iii) installing new floor covering, lighting, and wall coverings in the Building common areas, and in connection with any Renovations, Landlord may, among

Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with the conduct of Tenants business during the Renovations, and no such Renovations shall be designed, constructed, or built in a manner which would materially interfere with Tenants business use of the Premises after construction. Tenant hereby agrees that such Renovations and Landlords actions in connection with such Renovations shall in no way constitute a constructive eviction of Tenant nor entitle Tenant to any abatement of Rent. Except as otherwise provided in this Section, Landlord shall have no responsibility or for any reason be liable to Tenant for any direct or indirect injury to or interference with Tenants business arising from the Renovations, nor shall Tenant be entitled to any compensation or damages from Landlord for loss of the use of the whole or any part of the Premises or of Tenants personal property or improvements resulting from the Renovations or Landlords actions in connection with such Renovations, or for any inconvenience or annoyance occasioned by such Renovations or Landlords actions.
28. HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES.

If, as a result of any use, handling, storage, treatment, transport, release, discharge or disposal of any Hazardous Substances in or about the Project by Tenant or any Tenant Parties, any lender or governmental agency shall require testing for Hazardous Substances in the Premises, Tenant shall pay for such testing. Tenants obligations under this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease until all Claims within the scope of this Section 28.A are fully, finally, and absolutely barred by the applicable statutes of limitations.
B. Landlord Notification. Tenant shall promptly provide Landlord with complete copies of all documents, correspondence and other written materials directed to or from, or relating to, Tenant concerning environmental issues at the Premises or the Project, including, without limitation, documents relating to the release, potential release, investigation, compliance, cleanup and abatement of Hazardous Substances, and any claims, causes of action or other legal documents related to same.

29. EXCULPATION. Landlord shall have no personal liability under this Lease; its liability shall be limited solely and exclusively to Landlords interest in the Project. In no event shall Landlords liability extend to any other property or assets of Landlord, nor shall any officer, director, employee, agent, shareholder, partner, member or beneficiary of Landlord be personally liable for any of Landlords obligations hereunder. Further, in no event shall Landlord be liable under any circumstances for any consequential damages or for injury or damage to, or interference with, Tenants business, including but not limited to, loss of profits, loss of rents or other revenues, loss of business opportunity, loss of goodwill, or loss of use, however occurring.
30. COMMUNICATIONS AND COMPUTER LINES. Tenant may install, maintain, replace, remove or use any communications or computer wires and cables (collectively, the Lines) at the Project in or serving the Premises, provided that (i) Tenant shall obtain Landlords prior written consent, use an experienced and qualified contractor approved in writing by Landlord, and comply with all of the other provisions of this Lease, (ii) an acceptable number of spare Lines and space for additional Lines shall be maintained for existing and future occupants of the Project, as determined in Landlords reasonable opinion, (iii) the Lines therefor (including riser cables) shall be appropriately insulated to prevent excessive electromagnetic fields or radiation, and shall be surrounded by a protective conduit reasonably acceptable to Landlord, (iv) any new or existing Lines servicing the Premises shall comply with all Governmental Requirements, (v) as a condition to permitting the installation of new Lines, Landlord may require that Tenant remove existing Lines located in or serving the Premises and repair any damage in connection with such removal, and (vi) Tenant shall pay all costs in connection with the foregoing. Landlord reserves the right to require that Tenant remove any Lines located in or serving the Premises which are installed in violation of these provisions, or which are at any time in violation of any Governmental Requirements or represent a dangerous or potentially dangerous condition.
31. OPTION TO EXTEND.
A. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, Tenant may at its option (Renewal Option) extend the Term of this Lease for one (1) additional five (5) year period (the Renewal Term). If Tenant exercises the Renewal Option hereunder, all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease shall continue in full force and effect during the Renewal Term, including provisions regarding payment of Additional Rent, which shall remain payable on the terms herein set forth, except that (i) the Base Rent payable by Tenant during the Renewal Term shall be as determined in accordance with Sections 31.C and 31.D below, (ii) Tenant shall continue to possess and occupy the Premises in their existing condition, as is as of the commencement of the Renewal Term, and Landlord shall have no obligation to repair, remodel, improve or alter the Premises, to perform any other construction or other work of improvement upon the Premises, or to provide Tenant with any construction or refurbishing allowance whatsoever, and (iii) Tenant shall have no further rights to extend the Term of this Lease after the expiration of the Renewal Term.
B. To exercise the Renewal Option, Tenant must deliver an unconditional binding notice to Landlord via certified mail or hand delivery not sooner than three hundred sixty-five (365) days nor later than one hundred eighty (180) days prior to the expiration of the initial Term of this Lease. Thereafter, the Market Rate for the Renewal Term shall be determined pursuant to Section 31.C below. Such determination shall be final and shall not be recalculated at the actual commencement of such Renewal Term. If Tenant fails to timely give its notice of exercise, Tenant will be deemed to have waived its Renewal Option.
C. The Base Rent payable by Tenant for the Premises during the Renewal Term shall be ninety-five percent (95%) of the Market Rate (as defined below) for the Premises, valued as of the commencement of the Renewal Term, determined in the manner hereinafter provided; provided, however, that in no event shall the annual Base Rent payable by Tenant for any year of the Renewal Term be less than the annual Base Rent payable during the last year of the initial Term (Base Rent Floor). As used herein, the term Market Rate shall mean the annual amount of Base Rent that a willing tenant would pay, and that a willing landlord would accept, at arms length, for space comparable to the Premises within the Project or other comparable first class office projects in the vicinity of the Project (the Comparison Projects), based upon binding lease transactions for tenants in the Comparison Projects that, where possible, commence or are to commence within six (6) months prior to or within six (6) months after the commencement of the Renewal Term (Comparison Leases). Comparison Leases shall include renewal and new non-renewal tenancies, but shall exclude subleases and leases of space subject to another tenants expansion rights. Rental rates payable under Comparison Leases shall be adjusted to account for variations between this Lease and the Comparison Leases with respect to: (i) the length of the Renewal Term compared to the lease term of the Comparison Leases; (ii) rental structure, including, without limitation, rental rates per rentable square foot (including type, gross or net, and if gross, adjusting for base year or expense stop), additional rental, escalation provisions, all other payments and escalations; (iii) the size of the Premises compared to the size of the premises of the Comparison Leases; (iv) location, floor levels and efficiencies of the floor(s) for which the determination is being made; (v) free rent, moving expenses and other cash payments, allowances or other monetary concessions affecting the rental rate; (vi) the age and quality of construction of the Building (including compliance with applicable codes on the applicable floors); and (vii) leasehold improvements and/or allowances, including the amounts thereof in renewal leases, and taking into account, in the case of renewal leases (including this Lease), the value of existing leasehold improvements to the renewal tenant.
D. The Base Rent shall be determined as follows:
1. If Tenant provides Landlord with its unconditional binding notice of exercise pursuant to Section 31.B above, then, prior to the commencement of the Renewal Term, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant either (a) a good faith written proposal of the Market Rate, or (b) notice that Landlord has determined in good faith that ninety-five percent (95%) of the Market Rate is less than the Base Rent Floor and, therefore, that the Base Rent for the Renewal Term shall be equal to the Base Rent Floor. Within twenty-one (21) days after receipt of Landlords proposal, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing (x) that Tenant accepts Landlords proposal or (y) that Tenant elects to submit the determination of Market Rate to arbitration in accordance with Sections 31.D(2) through 31.D(4) below. If Tenant does not give Landlord a timely notice in response to Landlords proposal, Tenant shall be deemed to have
elected to submit the determination of Market Rate to arbitration in accordance with Sections 31.D(2) through 31.D(4) below.
2. If Tenant timely elects to submit the determination of Market Rate to arbitration, Landlord and Tenant shall first negotiate in good faith in an attempt to determine the Market Rate. If Landlord and Tenant are able to agree within thirty (30) days following the delivery of Tenants notice to Landlord electing arbitration (or if Tenant accepts Landlords initial proposal), then such agreement shall constitute a determination of Market Rate for purposes of this Section, and the parties shall immediately execute an amendment to this Lease stating the Base Rent for the Renewal Term. If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree on the Market Rate within such negotiating period, then within fifteen (15) days after the expiration of such negotiating period, the parties shall meet and concurrently deliver to each other in envelopes their respective good faith estimates of the Market Rate (set forth on a net effective rentable square foot per annum basis). If the higher of such estimates is not more than one hundred five percent (105%) of the lower, then the Market Rate shall be the average of the two. Otherwise, the dispute shall be resolved by arbitration in accordance with Sections 31.D(3) and (4) below.
3. Within seven (7) days after the exchange of estimates, the parties shall select as an arbitrator an independent real estate broker with at least five (5) years of experience in leasing commercial office space in the metropolitan area in which the Project is located (a Qualified Appraiser). If the parties cannot agree on a Qualified Appraiser, then within a second period of seven (7) days, each shall select a Qualified Appraiser and within ten (10) days thereafter the two appointed Qualified Appraisers shall select an independent Qualified Appraiser and the independent Qualified Appraiser shall be the sole arbitrator. If one party shall fail to select a Qualified Appraiser within the second seven (7) day period, then the Qualified Appraiser chosen by the other party shall be the sole arbitrator.
4. Within twenty-one (21) days after submission of the matter to the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall determine the Market Rate by choosing whichever of the estimates submitted by Landlord and Tenant the arbitrator judges to be more accurate. The arbitrator shall notify Landlord and Tenant of its decision, which shall be final and binding. If the arbitrator believes that expert advice would materially assist him, the arbitrator may retain one or more qualified persons to provide expert advice. The fees of the arbitrator and the expenses of the arbitration proceeding, including the fees of any expert witnesses retained by the arbitrator, shall be paid by the party whose estimate is not selected. Each party shall pay the fees of its respective counsel and the fees of any witness called by that party.
5. Until the matter is resolved by agreement between the parties or a decision is rendered in any arbitration commenced pursuant to this Section 31, Tenants monthly payments of Base Rent during the Renewal Term shall be in an amount equal to the Base Rent Floor. Within ten (10) business days following the resolution of such dispute by the parties or the decision of the arbitrator, as applicable, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, or Landlord shall pay to Tenant, the amount of any deficiency or excess, as the case may be, in the Base Rent theretofore paid.
E. Tenants right to exercise the Renewal Option is personal to, and may be exercised only by, the original named Tenant under this Lease or a Permitted Transferee, and
only if the original named Tenant and/or a Permitted Transferee continues to occupy at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the Premises at the time of such exercise. If Tenant shall assign this Lease or sublet more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the Premises under a sublease which is effective at any time during the final twelve (12) months of the initial Term to any person other than a Permitted Transferee, then immediately upon such assignment or subletting, the right to exercise the Renewal Option hereunder shall simultaneously terminate and be of no further force or effect. No assignee or subtenant, other than a Permitted Transferee, shall have any right to exercise the Renewal Option granted herein. In addition, if Tenant or a Permitted Transferee is in default under this Lease (after any applicable notice and cure period) at the time the Renewal Option is exercised or at any time thereafter until the commencement of the Renewal Term, or if Tenant or a Permitted Transferee has been in default under this Lease (after any applicable notice and cure period) at any time prior to the exercise of the Renewal Option, Landlord shall have, in addition to all of its other rights and remedies under this Lease, the right (but not the obligation) to terminate the Renewal Option and to unilaterally revoke the exercise of the Renewal Option, in which case this Lease shall expire on the Termination Date, unless earlier terminated pursuant to the terms hereof, and Tenant (or a Permitted Transferee) shall have no further rights under this Lease to renew or extend the Term.

TENANT IMPROVEMENT AGREEMENT
This Tenant Improvement Agreement (Agreement) is an integral part of the Lease dated October 6, 2003 (Lease) relating to certain Premises described therein, and except where clearly inconsistent or inapplicable, the provisions of the Lease are incorporated into this Agreement. Capitalized terms used in this Agreement not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning given such terms in the Lease. Landlord and Tenant agree as follows with respect to the Tenant Improvements to be installed in the Premises:
1. INITIAL TENANT IMPROVEMENTS.
A. Landlord shall cause to be performed the initial alterations, additions and improvements to the Premises identified on the Approved Space Plan attached to the Lease as Exhibit C-1 (collectively, the Tenant Improvements); provided, however, that Tenant agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with Landlord in minimizing the costs of such Tenant Improvements, provided that the usability and layout of the Premises is substantially consistent with the Approved Space Plan. Except as otherwise set forth in Exhibit C-1, Landlord shall cause the Tenant Improvements to be performed subject to and in accordance with Landlords standard specifications for the Project (Project Standard Specifications), including, but not limited to, the standard building materials which are then being used by Landlord for the Building. Landlord will provide Tenant with a copy of the Project Standard Specifications upon Tenants request. The work of constructing the Tenant Improvements is referred to as Landlords Work.
B. Following execution of the Lease, Landlord shall cause to be prepared and delivered to Tenant for Tenants review and approval the final working drawings for Landlords Work (the Final Plans); provided, however, that Tenants review and approval of the Final Plans shall be limited to (1) confirming their consistency with the Approved Space Plan and the Project Standard Specifications and (2) addressing any cost reduction (i.e., value engineering) proposals made by Landlord as provided above. Tenants approval of the Final Plans shall, subject to the foregoing, not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Landlord shall cause Landlords Work to be performed substantially as shown on the Final Plans, excepting only minor variations (i.e., variations which are not inconsistent with the intent of the Final Plans) as Landlord may deem advisable and any Change Orders approved by Landlord, and in compliance with Governmental Requirements.
2. CHANGE ORDERS. If, prior to the Substantial Completion Date, Tenant shall request improvements or changes to the Premises in addition to, revision of or substitution for the Tenant Improvements identified on the Approved Space Plan, including, without limitation, any request for above-Building standard finishes or other detailed specifications (individually or collectively, Change Order Requests), Tenant shall deliver to Landlord for its approval plans and specifications for such Change Order Requests. If Landlord does not approve of the plans for such Change Order Requests, Landlord shall advise Tenant of the revisions required within five (5) business days after Landlords receipt of the Change Order Requests. Tenant shall revise and redeliver the plans and specifications to Landlord within five (5) business days after
Landlords advice or Tenant shall be deemed to have abandoned its request for such Change Order Requests. Tenant shall pay for all preparations and revisions of plans and specifications, and the incremental increase in the cost of construction resulting from all Change Order Requests (as provided in Section 3.A below).
3. TENANT IMPROVEMENT COSTS.
A. Landlord shall bear the cost of construction of the Tenant Improvements; provided, however, that (1) Tenant shall bear any increase in the cost of construction resulting from Change Order Requests agreed upon by Landlord and Tenant; and (2) Tenant shall bear any increase in the cost of construction resulting from any Tenant Delays (as defined in Section 1.A(2) of the Lease).
B. Tenant shall pay to Landlord the costs and expenses described in Section 3.A above, as reasonably estimated by Landlord, within ten (10) days following presentation to Tenant of an invoice for such costs and expenses. Upon request, Landlord shall supply reasonable supporting documentation for any such invoice, in each instance within a reasonable time following such request, but Tenant shall not be entitled to delay or withhold payment of any sums invoiced by Landlord, and payment of such sums shall not be deemed a waiver of any right on the part of Tenant to such reasonable supporting documentation. Any delay resulting from Tenants failure to timely pay such invoice or any portion thereof shall be a Tenant Delay.
4. SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION. As used herein and in the Lease, the Substantial Completion Date shall be the date that (a) Landlord, its architect, engineer or construction manager determines that Landlords Work has been completed, except for (i) finishing details, minor omissions, mechanical adjustments, and similar items of the type customarily found on an architectural punch-list, the correction or completion of which will not substantially interfere with Tenants occupancy and use of the Premises; and (ii) trade fixtures, workstations, telecommunications or computer cabling or built-in furniture or equipment to be installed by Tenant, and (b) Tenant is legally permitted to occupy the Premises (as evidenced by final inspection and sign-off by the City of Santa Clara on the job card for Landlords Work, or reasonable equivalent) (Substantial Completion); provided, however, that as set forth in Section 1.A(2) of the Lease, if Landlord is delayed in completing Landlords Work or in delivering possession of the Premises to Tenant as a result of any Tenant Delay, the Substantial Completion Date shall be deemed to have occurred on the date the Substantial Completion Date would have occurred in the absence of such Tenant Delay, as reasonably determined by Landlord or Landlords architect.
