|B.||"Rentable Square Footage of the Building" is deemed to be 1,101,920 square feet; provided, however, that in the event Landlord constructs another office building on the land which is part of the Property or elects to operate the individual office buildings comprising the Building as separate entities, the Rentable Square Footage of the Building and Tenant's Pro Rata Share shall be appropriately adjusted by Landlord.|

The Term shall commence on January 1, 2003, (the "Commencement Date") and, unless terminated early in accordance with this Lease, end on December 31, 2007, (the "Termination Date"). However, if Landlord is required to Substantially Complete (defined in Section III.A) any Landlord Work (defined in Section I.M.) prior to the Commencement Date under the terms of a Work Letter (defined in Section I.M): (1) the date set forth in the prior sentence as the "Commencement Date" shall instead be defined as the "Target Commencement Date" by which date Landlord will use reasonable efforts to Substantially Complete the Landlord Work; and (2) the actual "Commencement Date" shall be the date on which the Landlord Work is Substantially Complete, as determined by Section III.A. In such circumstances, the Termination Date will instead be the last day of the Term as determined based upon the actual Commencement Date. Landlord's failure to Substantially Complete the Landlord Work by the Target Commencement Date shall not be a default by Landlord or otherwise render Landlord liable for damages.

III. Adjustment of Commencement Date; Possession.
|A.||The Landlord Work shall be deemed to be "Substantially Complete" on the date that, in Landlord's Architects reasonable opinion, all Landlord Work has been performed, other than any details of construction, mechanical adjustment or any other similar matter, the noncompletion of which does not materially interfere with Tenant's use of the Premises. However, if Landlord is delayed in the performance of the Landlord Work as a result of any Tenant Delay(s) (defined below), the Landlord Work shall be deemed to be Substantially Complete on the date that Landlord could reasonably have been expected to Substantially Complete the Landlord Work absent any Tenant Delay. "Tenant Delay" means any act or omission of Tenant or its agents, employees, vendors or contractors that actually delays the Substantial Completion of the Landlord Work, including, without limitation: (1) Tenant's failure to furnish information or approvals within any time period specified in this Lease, including the failure to prepare or approve preliminary or final plans by any applicable-due date; (2) Tenant's selection of equipment or materials that have long lead times after first being informed by Landlord that the selection may result in a delay; (3) changes requested or made by Tenant to previously approved plans and specifications; (4) performance of work in the Premises by Tenant or Tenant's contractor(s) during the performance of the Landlord Work; or (5) if the performance of any portion of the Landlord Work depends on the prior or simultaneous performance of work by Tenant, a delay by Tenant or Tenant's contractor(s) in the completion of such work.|
|B.||Subject to Landlord's obligation, if any, to perform Landlord Work and Landlord's obligations under Section IX.B., the Premises are accepted by Tenant in "as is" condition and configuration. By taking possession of the Premises, Tenant agrees that the Premises are in good order and satisfactory condition, and that there are no representations or warranties by Landlord regarding the condition of the Premises or the Building. If Landlord is delayed delivering possession of the Premises or any other space due to the holdover or unlawful possession of such space by any party, Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to obtain possession of the space. If Landlord is not required to Substantially Complete Landlord Work before the Commencement Date, the Commencement Date shall be postponed until the date Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant free from occupancy by any party, and the Termination Date, at the option of Landlord, may be postponed by an equal number of days. If Landlord is required to Substantially Complete Landlord Work before the Commencement Date, the Commencement Date and Termination Date shall be determined by Section I.E.|
|C.||If Tenant takes possession of the Premises before the Commencement Date, such possession shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease and Tenant shall pay Rent (defined in Article IV) to Landlord for each day of possession before the Commencement Date. However, except for the cost of services requested by Tenant (e.g. freight elevator usage), Tenant shall not be required to pay Rent for any days of possession before the Commencement Date during which Tenant, with the approval of Landlord, is in possession of the Premises for the sole purpose of performing improvements or installing furniture, equipment or other personal property.|
As consideration for this Lease, Tenant shall pay Landlord, without any setoff or deduction, the total amount of Base Rent and Additional Rent due for the Term. "Additional Rent" means all sums (exclusive of Base Rent) that Tenant is required to pay Landlord. Additional Rent and Base Rent are sometimes collectively referred to as "Rent". Tenant shall pay and be liable for all rental, sales and use taxes (but excluding income taxes), if any, imposed upon or measured by Rent under applicable Law. Base Rent and recurring monthly charges of Additional Rent shall be due and payable in advance on the first day of each
calendar month without notice or demand, provided that the installment of Base Rent for the first full calendar month of the Term shall be payable upon the execution of this Lease by Tenant. All other items of Rent shall be due and payable by Tenant on or before 30 days after billing by Landlord. All payments of Rent shall be by good and sufficient check or by other means (such as automatic debit or electronic transfer) acceptable to Landlord. If Tenant fails to pay any item or installment of Rent when due, Tenant shall pay Landlord an administration fee equal to 5% of the past due Rent, provided that Tenant shall be entitled to a grace period of 5 days for the first 2 late payments of Rent in a given calendar year. If the Term commences on a day other than the first day of a calendar month or terminates on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, the monthly Base Rent for the month shall be prorated based on the number of days in such calendar month. Landlord's acceptance of less than the correct amount of Rent shall be considered a payment on account of the earliest Rent due. No endorsement or statement on a check or letter accompanying a check or payment shall be considered an accord and satisfaction, and either party may accept the check or payment without prejudice to that party's right to recover the balance or pursue other available remedies. Tenant's covenant to pay Rent is independent of every other covenant in this Lease.
V. Compliance with Laws; Use.
The Premises shall be used only for the Permitted Use and for no other use whatsoever. Tenant shall not use or permit the use of the Premises for any purpose which is illegal, dangerous to persons or property or which, in Landlord's reasonable opinion, unreasonably disturbs any other tenants of the Building or interferes with the operation of the Building. Tenant shall comply with all Laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act; regarding the operation of Tenant's business and the use, condition, configuration and occupancy of the Premises. Tenant, within 10 days after receipt, shall provide Landlord with copies of any notices it receives regarding a violation or alleged violation of any Laws. Tenant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the Building attached as Exhibit B and such other reasonable rules and regulations adopted by Landlord from time to time. Tenant shall also cause its agents, contractors, subcontractors, employees, customers, and subtenants to comply with all rules and regulations. Landlord shall not knowingly discriminate against Tenant in Landlord's enforcement of the rules and regulations.
VI. Security Deposit.
The Security Deposit shall be delivered to Landlord upon the execution of this Lease by Tenant and shall be held by Landlord without liability for interest (unless required by Law) as security for the performance of Tenant's obligations. The Security Deposit is not an advance payment of Rent or a measure of Tenant's liability for damages. Landlord may, from time to time, without prejudice to any other remedy, use all or a portion of the Security Deposit to satisfy past due Rent or to cure any uncured default by Tenant. If Landlord uses the Security Deposit, Tenant shall on demand restore the Security Deposit to its original amount. Landlord shall return any unapplied portion of the Security Deposit to Tenant within 45 days after the later to occur of: (1) the date Tenant surrenders possession of the Premises to Landlord in accordance with this Lease; or (2) the Termination Date. If Landlord transfers its interest in the Premises, Landlord may assign the Security Deposit to the transferee and, following the assignment, Landlord shall have no further liability for the return of the Security Deposit. Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from its other accounts.
VII. Services to be Furnished by Landlord.
|A.||Landlord agrees to furnish Tenant with the following services: (1) Water service for use in the lavatories on each floor on which the Premises are located; (2) Heat and air conditioning in season during Normal Business Hours, at such temperatures and in such amounts as are standard for comparable buildings or as required by governmental authority. Tenant, upon such advance notice as is reasonably required by Landlord, shall have the right to receive HVAC service during hours other than Normal Business Hours. Tenant shall pay Landlord the standard charge for the additional service as reasonably determined by Landlord from time to time; (3) Maintenance and repair of the Property as described in Section IX.B.; (4) Janitor service on Business Days. If Tenant's use, floor covering or other improvements require special services in excess of the standard services for the Building, Tenant shall pay the additional cost attributable to the special services; (5) Elevator service; (6) Electricity to the Premises for general office use, in accordance with and subject to the terms and conditions in Article X; and (7) such other services as Landlord reasonably determines are necessary or appropriate for the Property.|
|B.||Landlord's failure to furnish, or any interruption or termination of, services due to the application of Laws, the failure of any equipment, the performance of repairs, improvements or alterations, or the occurrence of any event or cause beyond the reasonable control of Landlord (a "Service Failure") shall not render Landlord liable to Tenant, constitute a constructive eviction of Tenant, give rise to an abatement of Rent, nor relieve Tenant from the obligation to fulfill any covenant or agreement. However, if the Premises, or a material portion of the Premises, is made untenantable for a period in excess of 3 consecutive Business Days as a result of the Service Failure, then Tenant, as its sole remedy, shall be entitled to receive an abatement of Rent payable hereunder during the period beginning on the 4th consecutive Business Day of the Service Failure and ending on the day the service has been restored. If the entire Premises has not been rendered untenantable by the Service Failure, the amount of abatement that Tenant is entitled to receive shall be prorated based upon the percentage of the Premises rendered untenantable and not used by Tenant. In no event, however, shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for any loss or damage, including the theft of Tenant's Property (defined in Article XV), arising out of or in connection with the failure of any security services, personnel or equipment.|
VIII. Leasehold Improvements.
All improvements to the Premises (collectively, "Leasehold Improvements") shall be owned by Landlord and shall remain upon the Premises without compensation to Tenant. However, Landlord, by written notice to Tenant within 30 days prior to the Termination Date, may require Tenant to remove, at Tenant's expense: (1) Cable (defined in Section IX.A) installed by or for the exclusive benefit of Tenant and located in the Premises or other portions of the Building; and (2) any Leasehold Improvements that are performed by or for the benefit of Tenant and, in Landlord's reasonable judgment, are of a nature that would require removal and repair costs that are materially in excess of the removal and repair costs associated with standard office improvements (collectively referred to as "Required Removables"). Without limitation, it is agreed that Required Removables include internal stairways, raised floors, personal baths and showers, vaults, rolling file systems and structural alterations and modifications of any type. The Required Removables designated by Landlord shall be removed by Tenant before the Termination Date, provided that upon prior written notice to Landlord, Tenant may remain in the Premises for up to 5 days after the Termination Date for the sole purpose of removing the Required Removables. Tenant's possession of the Premises shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Lease, including the obligation to pay Rent on a per diem basis at the rate in effect for the last month of the Term. Tenant shall repair damage caused by the installation or removal of Required Removables. If Tenant fails to remove any Required Removables or perform related repairs in a timely manner, Landlord, at Tenant's expense, may remove and dispose of the Required Removables and perform the required repairs. Tenant, within 30 days after receipt of an invoice, shall reimburse Landlord for the reasonable costs incurred by Landlord. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant, at the time it requests approval for a proposed Alteration (defined in Section IX.C), may request in writing that Landlord advise Tenant whether the Alteration or any portion of the Alteration will be designated as a Required Removable. Within 10 days after receipt of Tenant's request, Landlord shall advise Tenant in writing as to which portions of the Alteration, if any, will be considered to be Required Removables.
IX. Repairs and Alterations.
|A.||Tenant's Repair Obligations. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, promptly perform all maintenance and repairs to the Premises that are not Landlord's express responsibility under this Lease, and shall keep the Premises in good condition and repair, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

|invoice, together with an administrative charge in an amount equal to 10% of the cost of the repairs.|

Landlord shall promptly make repairs (considering the nature and urgency of the repair) for which Landlord is responsible.|
|C.||Alterations. Tenant shall not make alterations, additions or improvements to the Premises or install any Cable in the Premises or other portions of the Building (collectively referred to as "Alterations") without first obtaining the written consent of Landlord in each instance, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

Changes to the plans and specifications must also be submitted to Landlord for its approval. Alterations shall be constructed in a good and workmanlike manner using materials of a quality that is at least equal to the quality designated by Landlord as the minimum standard for the Building. Landlord may designate reasonable rules, regulations and procedures for the performance of work in the Building and, to the extent reasonably necessary to avoid disruption to the occupants of the Building, shall have the right to designate the time when Alterations may be performed. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord within 30 days after receipt of an invoice for sums paid by Landlord for third party examination of Tenant's plans for non-Cosmetic Alterations. In addition, within 30 days after receipt of an invoice from Landlord, Tenant shall pay Landlord a fee for Landlord's oversight and coordination of any non-Cosmetic Alterations equal to 10% of the cost of the non-Cosmetic Alterations.

|A.||Electricity used by Tenant in the Premises shall, at Landlord's option, be paid for by Tenant either: (1) through inclusion in Base Rent (except as provided in Section X.B. for excess usage); (2) by a separate charge payable by Tenant to Landlord within 30 days after billing by Landlord; or (3) by separate charge billed by the applicable utility company and payable directly by Tenant. Electrical service to the Premises may be furnished by one or more companies providing electrical generation, transmission and distribution services, and the cost of electricity may consist of several different components or separate charges for such services, such as generation, distribution and stranded cost charges. Landlord shall have the exclusive right to select any company providing electrical service to the Premises, to aggregate the electrical service for the Property and Premises with other buildings, to purchase electricity through a broker and/or buyers group and to change the providers and manner of purchasing electricity.

|B.||Tenant's use of electrical service shall not exceed, either in voltage, rated capacity, use beyond Normal Business Hours or overall load, , 4 watts per square foot, which Landlord deems to be standard for the Building. If Tenant requests permission to consume excess electrical service, Landlord may refuse to consent or may condition consent upon conditions that Landlord reasonably elects (including, without limitation, the installation of utility service upgrades, meters, submeters, air handlers or cooling units), and the additional usage (to the extent permitted by Law), installation and maintenance costs shall be paid by Tenant. Landlord shall have the right to separately meter electrical usage for the Premises and to measure electrical usage by survey or other commonly accepted methods.|
XI. Entry by Landlord.
Landlord, its agents, contractors and representatives may enter the Premises to inspect or show the Premises, to clean and make repairs, alterations or additions to the Premises, and to conduct or facilitate repairs, alterations or additions to any portion of the Building, including other tenants' premises. Except in emergencies or to provide janitorial and other Building services after Normal Business Hours, Landlord shall provide Tenant with reasonable prior notice of entry into the Premises, which may be given orally. If reasonably necessary for the protection and safety of Tenant and its employees, Landlord shall have the right to temporarily close all or a portion of the Premises to perform repairs, alterations and additions. However, except in emergencies, Landlord will not close the Premises if the work can reasonably be completed on weekends and after Normal Business Hours. Entry by Landlord shall not constitute constructive eviction or entitle Tenant to an abatement or reduction of Rent.
XII. Assignment and Subletting.
|A.||Except in connection with a Permitted Transfer (defined in Section XII.E. below), Tenant shall not assign, sublease, transfer or encumber any interest in this Lease or allow any third party to use any portion of the Premises (collectively or individually, a "Transfer") without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld if Landlord does not elect to exercise its termination rights under Section XII.B below. Without limitation, it is agreed that Landlord's consent shall not be considered unreasonably withheld if: (1) the proposed transferee's financial condition does not meet the criteria Landlord uses to select Building tenants having similar leasehold obligations; (2) the proposed transferee's business is not suitable for the Building considering the business of the other tenants and the Building's prestige, or would result in a violation of another tenant's rights; (3) the proposed transferee is a governmental agency or occupant of the Building; (4) Tenant is in default after the expiration of the notice and cure periods in this Lease; or (5) any portion of the Building or Premises would likely become subject to additional or different Laws as a consequence of the proposed Transfer. Tenant shall not be entitled to receive monetary damages based upon a claim that Landlord unreasonably withheld its consent to a proposed Transfer and Tenant's sole remedy shall be an action to enforce any such provision through specific performance or declaratory judgment. Any attempted Transfer in violation of this Article shall, at Landlord's option, be void. Consent by Landlord to one or more Transfers) shall not operate as a waiver of Landlord's rights to approve any subsequent Transfers. In no event shall any Transfer or Permitted Transfer release or relieve Tenant from any obligation under this Lease.|
|B.||As part of its request for Landlord's consent to a Transfer, Tenant shall provide Landlord with financial statements for the proposed transferee, a complete copy of the proposed assignment, sublease and other contractual documents and such other information as Landlord may reasonably request. Landlord shall, by written notice to Tenant within 30 days of its receipt of the required information and documentation, either: (1) consent to the Transfer by the execution of a consent agreement in a form reasonably designated by Landlord or reasonably refuse to consent to the Transfer in writing; or (2) exercise its right to terminate this Lease with respect to the portion of the Premises that Tenant is proposing to assign or sublet. Any such termination shall be effective on the proposed effective date of the Transfer for which Tenant requested consent. Tenant shall pay Landlord a review fee of $500.00 for Landlord's review of any Permitted|
|Transfer or requested Transfer, provided if Landlord's actual reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees) exceed $500.00, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for its actual reasonable costs and expenses in lieu of a fixed review fee.|
|C.||Tenant shall pay Landlord 50% of all rent and other consideration which Tenant receives as a result of a Transfer that is in excess of the Rent payable to Landlord for the portion of the Premises and Term covered by the Transfer. Tenant shall pay Landlord for Landlord's share of any excess within 30 days after Tenant's receipt of such excess consideration. Tenant may deduct from the excess all reasonable and customary expenses directly incurred by Tenant attributable to the Transfer (other than Landlord's review fee), including brokerage fees, legal fees and construction costs. If Tenant is in Monetary Default (defined in Section XIX.A. below), Landlord may require that all sublease payments be made directly to Landlord, in which case Tenant shall receive a credit against Rent in the amount of any payments received (less Landlord's share of any excess).|
|D.||Except as provided below with respect to a Permitted Transfer, if Tenant is a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or similar entity, and if the entity which owns or controls a majority of the voting shares/rights at any time changes for any reason (including but not limited to a merger, consolidation or reorganization), such change of ownership or control shall constitute a Transfer. The foregoing shall not apply so long as Tenant is an entity whose outstanding stock is listed on a recognized security exchange, or if at least 80% of its voting stock is owned by another entity, the voting stock of which is so listed.|
|E.||Tenant may assign its entire interest under this Lease to a successor to Tenant by purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization without the consent of Landlord, provided that all of the following conditions are satisfied (a "Permitted Transfer"): (1) Tenant is not in default under this Lease; (2) Tenant's successor shall own all or substantially all of the assets of Tenant; (3) Tenant's successor shall have a net worth which is at least equal to the greater of Tenant's net worth at the date of this Lease or Tenant's net worth as of the day prior to the proposed purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization; (4) the Permitted Use does not allow the Premises to be used for retail purposes; and (5) Tenant shall give Landlord written notice at least 30 days prior to the effective date of the proposed purchase, merger, consolidation or reorganization. Tenant's notice to Landlord shall include information and documentation showing that each of the above conditions has been satisfied. If requested by Landlord, Tenant's successor shall sign a commercially reasonable form of assumption agreement.|
Tenant shall not permit mechanic's or other liens to be placed upon the Property, Premises or Tenant's leasehold interest in connection with any work or service done or purportedly done by or for benefit of Tenant. If a lien is so placed, Tenant shall, within 10 days of notice from Landlord of the filing of the lien, fully discharge the lien by settling the claim which resulted in the lien or by bonding or insuring over the lien in the manner prescribed by the applicable lien Law. If Tenant fails to discharge the lien, then, in addition to any other right or remedy of Landlord, Landlord may bond or insure over the lien or otherwise discharge the lien. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any amount paid by Landlord to bond or insure over the lien or discharge the lien, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees (if and to the extent permitted by Law) within 30 days after receipt of an invoice from Landlord.

All policies of Tenant's Insurance shall contain endorsements that the insurers) shall give Landlord and its designees at least 30 days' advance written notice of any change, cancellation, termination or lapse of insurance. Tenant shall provide Landlord with a certificate of insurance evidencing Tenant's Insurance prior to the earlier to occur of the Commencement Date or the date Tenant is provided with possession of the Premises for any reason, and upon renewals at least 15 days prior to the expiration of the insurance coverage. So long as the same is available at commercially reasonable rates, Landlord shall maintain so called All Risk property insurance on the Building at replacement cost value, as reasonably estimated by Landlord. Except as specifically provided to the contrary, the limits of either party’s' insurance shall not limit such party's liability under this Lease.
Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Landlord and Tenant hereby waive and shall cause their respective insurance carriers to waive any and all rights of recovery, claim, action or causes of action against the other and their respective trustees, principals, beneficiaries, partners, officers, directors, agents, and employees, for any loss or damage that may occur to Landlord or Tenant or any party claiming by, through or under Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, with respect to Tenant's Property, the Building, the Premises, any additions or improvements to the Building or Premises, or any contents thereof, including all rights of recovery, claims, actions or causes of action arising out of the negligence of Landlord or any Landlord Related Parties or the negligence of Tenant or any Tenant Related Parties, which loss
or damage is (or would have been, had the insurance required by this Lease been carried) covered by insurance.
XVII. Casualty Damage.
|A.||If all or any part of the Premises is damaged by fire or other casualty, Tenant shall immediately notify Landlord in writing. During any period of time that all or a material portion of the Premises is rendered untenantable as a result of a fire or other casualty, the Rent shall abate for the portion of the Premises that is untenantable and not used by Tenant. Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease if: (1) the Building shall be damaged so that, in Landlord's reasonable judgment, substantial alteration or reconstruction of the Building shall be required (whether or not the Premises has been damaged); (2) Landlord is not permitted by Law to rebuild the Building in substantially the same form as existed before the fire or casualty; (3) the Premises have been materially damaged and there is less than 2 years of the Term remaining on the date of the casualty; (4) any Mortgagee requires that the insurance proceeds be applied to the payment of the mortgage debt; or (5) a material uninsured loss to the Building occurs. Landlord may exercise its right to terminate this Lease by notifying Tenant in writing within 90 days after the date of the casualty. If Landlord does not terminate this Lease, Landlord shall commence and proceed with reasonable diligence to repair and restore the Building and the Leasehold Improvements (excluding any Alterations that were performed by Tenant in violation of this Lease). However, in no event shall Landlord be required to spend more than the insurance proceeds received by Landlord. Landlord shall not be liable for any loss or damage to Tenant's Property or to the business of Tenant resulting in any way from the fire or other casualty or from the repair and restoration of the damage. Landlord and Tenant hereby waive the provisions of any Law relating to the matters addressed in this Article, and agree that their respective rights for damage to or destruction of the Premises shall be those specifically provided in this Lease.|
|B.||If all or any portion of the Premises shall be made untenantable by fire or other casualty, Landlord shall, with reasonable promptness, cause an architect or general contractor selected by Landlord to provide Landlord and Tenant with a written estimate of the amount of time required to substantially complete the repair and restoration of the Premises and make the Premises tenantable again, using standard working methods ("Completion Estimate"). If the Completion Estimate indicates that the Premises cannot be made tenantable within 270 days from the date the repair and restoration is started, then regardless of anything in Section XVII.A above to the contrary, either party shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving written notice to the other of such election within 10 days after receipt of the Completion Estimate. Tenant, however, shall not have the right to terminate this Lease if the fire or casualty was caused by the negligence or intentional misconduct of Tenant, Tenant Related Parties or any of Tenant's transferees, contractors or licensees.|
Either party may terminate this Lease if the whole or any material part of the Premises shall be taken or condemned for any public or quasipublic use under Law, by eminent domain or private purchase in lieu thereof (a "Taking"). Landlord shall also have the right to terminate this Lease if there is a Taking of any portion of the Building or Property which would leave the remainder of the Building unsuitable for use as an office building in a manner comparable to the Building's use prior to the Taking. In order to exercise its right to terminate the Lease, Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, must provide written notice of termination to the other within 45 days after the terminating party first receives notice of the Taking. Any such termination shall be effective as of the date the physical taking of the Premises or the portion of the Building or Property occurs. If this Lease is not terminated, the Rentable Square Footage of the Building and the Rentable Square Footage of the Premises shall, if applicable, be appropriately adjusted. In addition, Rent for any portion of the Premises taken or condemned shall be abated during the unexpired Term of this Lease effective when the physical taking of the portion of the Premises occurs. All compensation awarded for a Taking, or sale proceeds, shall be the property of Landlord, any right to receive compensation or proceeds being expressly waived by Tenant. However, Tenant may file a separate claim at its sole cost and expense for Tenant's Property and Tenant's reasonable relocation expenses, provided the filing of the claim does not diminish the award which would otherwise be receivable by Landlord.
XIX. Events of Default.
Tenant shall be considered to be in default of this Lease upon the occurrence of any of the following events of default:
|A.||Tenant's failure to pay when due all or any portion of the Rent, if the failure continues for 5 days after written notice to Tenant ("Monetary Default").|
|B.||Tenant's failure (other than a Monetary Default) to comply with any term, provision or covenant of this Lease, if the failure is not cured within 10 days after written notice to Tenant. However, if Tenant's failure to comply cannot reasonably be cured within 10 days, Tenant shall be allowed additional time (not to exceed 90 days) as is reasonably necessary to cure the failure so long as: (1) Tenant commences to cure the failure within 10 days, and (2) Tenant diligently pursues a course of action that will cure the failure and bring Tenant back into compliance with the Lease. However, if Tenant's failure to comply creates a hazardous condition, the failure must be cured immediately upon notice to Tenant. In addition, if Landlord provides Tenant with notice of Tenant's failure to comply with any particular term, provision or covenant of the Lease on 3 occasions during any 12 month period, Tenant's subsequent violation of such term, provision or covenant shall, at Landlord's option, be an incurable event of default by Tenant.|
|C.||Tenant or any Guarantor becomes insolvent, makes, a transfer in fraud of creditors or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or admits in writing its inability to pay its debts when due.|
|D.||The leasehold estate is taken by process or operation of Law.|
|E.||In the case of any ground floor or retail Tenant, Tenant does not take possession of, or abandons or vacates all or any portion of the Premises.|
|F.||Tenant is in default beyond any notice and cure period under any other lease or agreement with Landlord, including, without limitation, any lease or agreement for parking.|
|A.||Upon any default, Landlord shall have the right without notice or demand (except as provided in Article XIX) to pursue any of its rights and remedies at Law or in equity, Including any one or more of the following remedies:|
|1.||Terminate this Lease, in which case Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord. If Tenant fails to surrender the Premises, Landlord may, in compliance with applicable Law and without prejudice to any other right or remedy, enter upon and take possession of the Premises and expel and remove Tenant, Tenant's Property and any party occupying all or any part of the Premises. Tenant shall pay Landlord on demand the amount of all past due Rent and other losses and damages which Landlord may suffer as a result of Tenant's default, whether by Landlord's inability to relet the Premises on satisfactory terms or otherwise, including, without limitation, all Costs of Reletting (defined below) and any deficiency that may arise from reletting or the failure to relet the Premises. "Costs of Reletting" shall include all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in reletting or attempting to relet the Premises, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees, brokerage commissions, the cost of alterations and the value of other concessions or allowances granted to a new tenant.|
|2.||Terminate Tenant's right to possession of the Premises and, in compliance with applicable Law, expel and remove Tenant, Tenant's Property and any parties occupying all or any part of the Premises. Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to) relet all or any part of the Premises, without notice to Tenant, for a term that may be greater or less than the balance of the Term and on such conditions (which may include concessions, free rent and alterations of the Premises) and for such uses as Landlord in its absolute discretion shall determine. Landlord may collect and receive all rents and other income from the reletting. Tenant|
|shall pay Landlord on demand all past due Rent, all Costs of Reletting and any deficiency arising from the reletting or failure to relet the Premises. Landlord shall not be responsible or liable for the failure to relet all or any part of the Premises or for the failure to collect any Rent. The re-entry or taking of possession of the Premises shall not be construed as an election by Landlord to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of termination is given to Tenant.|
|3.||In lieu of calculating damages under Sections XX.A.1 or XX.A.2 above, Landlord may elect to receive as damages the sum of (a) all Rent accrued through the date of termination of this Lease or Tenant's right to possession, and (b) an amount equal to the total Rent that Tenant would have been required to pay for the remainder of the Term discounted to present value at the Prime Rate (defined in Section XX.B. below) then in effect, minus the then present fair rental value of the Premises for the remainder of the Term, similarly discounted, after deducting all anticipated Costs of Reletting.|
|B.||Unless expressly provided in this Lease, the repossession or re-entering of all or any part of the Premises shall not relieve Tenant of its liabilities and obligations under the Lease. No right or remedy of Landlord shall be exclusive of any other right or remedy. Each right and remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other right and remedy now or subsequently available to Landlord at Law or in equity. If Landlord declares Tenant to be in default, Landlord shall be entitled to receive interest on any unpaid item of Rent at a rate equal to the Prime Rate plus 4%. For purposes hereof, the “Prime Rate“ shall be the per annum interest rate publicly announced as its prime or base rate by a federally insured bank selected by Landlord in the state in which the Building is located. Forbearance by Landlord to enforce one or more remedies shall not constitute a waiver of any default.|
XXI. Limitation of Liability.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED IN THIS LEASE, THE LIABILITY OF LANDLORD (AND OF ANY SUCCESSOR LANDLORD) TO TENANT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE INTEREST OF LANDLORD IN THE PROPERTY. TENANT SHALL LOOK SOLELY TO LANDLORD's INTEREST IN THE PROPERTY FOR THE RECOVERY OF ANY JUDGMENT OR AWARD AGAINST LANDLORD. NEITHER LANDLORD NOR ANY LANDLORD RELATED PARTY SHALL BE PERSONALLY LIABLE FOR ANY JUDGMENT OR DEFICIENCY. BEFORE FILING SUIT FOR AN ALLEGED DEFAULT BY LANDLORD, TENANT SHALL GIVE LANDLORD AND THE MORTGAGEE(S) (DEFINED IN ARTICLE XXVI BELOW) WHOM TENANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED HOLD MORTGAGES (DEFINED IN ARTICLE XXVI BELOW) ON THE PROPERTY, BUILDING OR PREMISES, NOTICE AND REASONABLE TIME TO CURE THE ALLEGED DEFAULT.
XXII. No Waiver.
Either party's failure to declare a default immediately upon its occurrence, or delay in taking action for a default shall not constitute a waiver of the default, nor shall it constitute an estoppel. Either party's failure to enforce its rights for a default shall not constitute a waiver of its rights regarding any subsequent default. Receipt by Landlord of Tenant's keys to the Premises shall not constitute an acceptance or surrender of the Premises.
XXIII. Quiet Enjoyment.
Tenant shall, and may peacefully have, hold and enjoy the Premises, subject to the terms of this Lease, provided Tenant pays the Rent and fully performs all of its covenants and agreements. This covenant and all other covenants of Landlord shall be binding upon Landlord and its successors only during its or their respective periods of ownership of the Building, and shall not be a personal covenant of Landlord or the Landlord Related Parties.
Landlord, at its expense, at any time before or during the Term, may relocate Tenant from the Premises to reasonably comparable space ("Relocation Space") within the Building or adjacent buildings within the same project upon 60 days' prior written notice to Tenant. So long as Tenant is subleasing the adjacent Suite 200 consisting of approximately 8,092 rentable square feet from another tenant of the Building and is leasing the adjacent Suite 220 consisting
of approximately 1,546 rentable square feet in the Building from Landlord, Landlord and Tenant understand and agree that to be a "reasonably comparable space" for purposes of this Section XXIV. the Relocation Space must be reasonably comparable to the combined space consisting of the Premises and Suite 200 and Suite 220. From and after the date of the relocation, "Premises" shall refer to the Relocation Space into which Tenant has been moved and the Base Rent shall be adjusted based on the rentable square footage of the Relocation Space except that Base Rent shall be abated on 8,092 rentable square feet of the Relocation Space through the earlier of 1) July 31, 2003, or 2) the date of the expiration of the term of Tenant's sublease for the Suite 200 space. Landlord shall pay Tenant's reasonable costs for moving Tenant's furniture and equipment and printing and distributing notices to Tenant's customers of Tenant's change of address and one month's supply of stationery showing the new address.
XXV. Holding Over.
Except for any permitted occupancy by Tenant under Article VIII, if Tenant fails to surrender the Premises at the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, occupancy of the Premises after the termination or expiration shall be that of a tenancy at sufferance. Tenant's occupancy of the Premises during the holdover shall be subject to all the terms and provisions of this Lease and Tenant shall pay an amount (on a per month basis without reduction for partial months during the holdover) equal to 150% of the greater of: (1) the sum of the Base Rent and Additional Rent due for the period immediately preceding the holdover; or (2) the fair market gross rental for the Premises as reasonably determined by Landlord. No holdover by Tenant or payment by Tenant after the expiration or early termination of this Lease shall be construed to extend the Term or prevent Landlord from immediate recovery of possession of the Premises by summary proceedings or otherwise. In addition to the payment of the amounts provided above, if Landlord is unable to deliver possession of the Premises to a new tenant, or to perform improvements for a new tenant, as a result of Tenant's holdover and Tenant fails to vacate the Premises within 15 days after Landlord notifies Tenant of Landlord's inability to deliver possession, or perform improvements, Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for all damages, including, without limitation, consequential damages, that Landlord suffers from the holdover.
XXVI. Subordination to Mortgages; Estoppel Certificate.

The party having the benefit of a Mortgage shall be referred to as a "Mortgagee". This clause shall be self-operative, but upon request from a Mortgagee, Tenant shall execute a commercially reasonable subordination agreement in favor of the Mortgagee. In lieu of having the Mortgage be superior to this Lease, a Mortgagee shall have the right at any time to subordinate its Mortgage to this Lease. If requested by a successor-in-interest to all or a part of Landlord's interest in the Lease, Tenant shall, without charge, attorn to the successor-in-interest. Landlord and Tenant shall each, within 10 days after receipt of a written request from the other, execute and deliver an estoppel certificate to those parties as are reasonably requested by the other (including a Mortgagee or prospective purchaser). The estoppel certificate shall include a statement certifying that this Lease is unmodified (except as identified in the estoppel certificate) and in full force and effect, describing the dates to which Rent and other charges have been paid, representing that, to such party's actual knowledge, there is no default (or stating the nature of the alleged default) and indicating other matters with respect to the Lease that may reasonably be requested.
XXVII. Attorneys' Fees.
If either party institutes a suit against the other for violation of or to enforce any covenant or condition of this Lease, or if either party intervenes in any suit in which the other is a party to enforce or protect its interest or rights, the prevailing party shall be entitled to all of its costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees.

Landlord has the right to change the Building's name or address. Landlord also has the right to make such other changes to the Property and Building as Landlord deems appropriate, provided the changes do not materially affect Tenant's ability to use the Premises for the Permitted Use. Landlord shall also have the right (but not the obligation) to temporarily close the Building if Landlord reasonably determines that there is an imminent danger of significant damage to the Building or of personal injury to Landlord's employees or the occupants of the Building. The circumstances under which Landlord may temporarily close the Building shall include, without limitation, electrical interruptions, hurricanes and civil disturbances. A closure of the Building under such circumstances shall not constitute a constructive eviction nor entitle Tenant to an abatement or reduction of Rent.

Landlord shall not be responsible for the value, preservation or safekeeping of Tenant's Property. Tenant shall pay Landlord, upon demand, the expenses and storage charges incurred for Tenant's Property.

|A.||This Lease and the rights and obligations of the parties shall be interpreted, construed and enforced in accordance with the Laws of the state in which the Building is located and Landlord and Tenant hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction and proper venue of such state. If any term or provision of this Lease shall to any extent be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease shall not be affected, and each provision of this Lease shall be valid and enforced to the fullest extent permitted by Law.

However, events of Force Majeure shall not extend any period of time for the payment of Rent or other sums payable by either party or any period of time for the written exercise of an option or right by either party.|
|E.||Landlord shall have the right to transfer and assign, in whole or in part, all of its rights and obligations under this Lease and in the Building and/or Property referred to herein, and upon such transfer Landlord shall be released from any further obligations hereunder, and Tenant agrees to look solely to the successor in interest of Landlord for the performance of such obligations.|

|I.||The expiration of the Term, whether by lapse of time or otherwise, shall not relieve either party of any obligations which accrued prior to or which may continue to accrue after the expiration or early termination of this Lease. Without limiting the scope of the prior sentence, it is agreed that Tenant's obligations under Articles IV, VIII, XIV, XX, XXV and XXX shall survive the expiration or early termination of this Lease.|
|J.||Landlord has delivered a copy of this Lease to Tenant for Tenant's review only, and the delivery of it does not constitute an offer to Tenant or an option. This Lease shall not be effective against any party hereto until an original copy of this Lease has been signed by such party.|

This Exhibit is attached to and made a part of the Lease by and between EOP-WESTBROOK CORPORATE CENTER, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company ("Landlord") and ONLINE DATA CORP., a Delaware corporation ("Tenant") for space in the Building located at Two Westbrook Corporate Center.
As used in this Workletter, the "Premises" shall be deemed to mean the Premises, as initially defined in the attached Lease.
|1.||This Work Letter shall set forth the obligations of Landlord and Tenant with respect to the improvements to be performed in the Premises for Tenant's use. All improvements described in this Work Letter to be constructed in and upon the Premises by Landlord are hereinafter referred to as the "Landlord Work." It is agreed that construction of the Landlord Work will be completed at Tenant's sole cost and expense, subject to the Allowance (as defined below). Landlord shall enter into a direct contract for the Landlord Work with a general contractor selected by Landlord. In addition, Landlord shall have the right to select and/or approve of any subcontractors used in connection with the Landlord Work.|
|2.||Tenant shall be solely responsible for the timely preparation and submission to Landlord of the final architectural, electrical and mechanical construction drawings, plans and specifications (called "Plans") necessary to construct the Landlord Work, which plans shall be subject to approval by Landlord and Landlord's architect and engineers and shall comply with their requirements to avoid aesthetic or other conflicts with the design and function of the balance of the Building. Tenant shall be responsible for all elements of the design of Tenant's plans (including, without limitation, compliance with law, functionality of design, the structural integrity of the design, the configuration of the Premises and the placement of Tenant's furniture, appliances and equipment), and Landlord's approval of Tenant's plans shall in no event relieve Tenant of the responsibility for such design. If requested by Tenant, Landlord's architect will prepare the Plans necessary for such construction at Tenant's cost. Whether or not the layout and Plans are prepared with the help (in whole or in part) of Landlord's architect, Tenant agrees to remain solely responsible for the timely preparation and submission of the Plans and for all elements of the design of such Plans and for all costs related thereto. Tenant has assured itself by direct communication with the architect and engineers (Landlord's or its own, as the case may be) that the final approved Plans can be delivered to Landlord on or before December 10, 2002, (the "Plans Due Date"), provided that Tenant promptly furnishes complete information concerning its requirements to said architect and engineers as and when requested by them. Tenant covenants and agrees to cause said final, approved Plans to be delivered to Landlord on or before said Plans Due Date and to devote such time as may be necessary in consultation with said architect and engineers to enable them to complete and submit the Plans within the required time limit. Time is of the essence in respect of preparation and submission of Plans by Tenant. If the Plans are not fully completed and approved by the Plans Due Date, Tenant shall be responsible for one day of Tenant Delay (as defined in the Lease to which this Exhibit is attached) for each day during the period beginning on the day following the Plans Due Date and ending on the date completed Plans are approved. (The word "architect" as used in this Exhibit shall include an interior designer or space planner.)|
|3.||If Landlord's estimate and/or the actual cost of construction shall exceed the Allowance, Landlord, prior to commencing any construction of Landlord Work, shall submit to Tenant a written estimate setting forth the anticipated cost of the Landlord Work, including but not limited to labor and materials, contractor's fees and permit fees. Within 3 Business Days thereafter, Tenant shall either notify Landlord in writing of its approval of the cost estimate, or specify its objections thereto and any desired changes to the proposed Landlord Work. If Tenant notifies Landlord of such objections and desired changes, Tenant shall work with Landlord to reach a mutually acceptable alternative cost estimate.|
|4.||If Landlord's estimate and/or the actual cost of construction shall exceed the Allowance, if any (such amounts exceeding the Allowance being herein referred to as the "Excess Costs"), Tenant shall pay to Landlord such Excess Costs, plus any applicable state sales or use tax thereon, upon demand. The statements of costs submitted to Landlord by Landlord's contractors shall be conclusive for purposes of determining the actual cost of|
|the items described therein. The amounts payable by Tenant hereunder constitute Rent payable pursuant to the Lease, and the failure to timely pay same constitutes an event of default under the Lease.|
|5.||If Tenant shall request any change, addition or alteration in any of the Plans after approval by Landlord, Landlord shall have such revisions to the drawings prepared, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost thereof, plus any applicable state sales or use tax thereon, upon demand. Promptly upon completion of the revisions, Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing of the increased cost which will be chargeable to Tenant by reason of such change, addition or deletion. Tenant, within one Business Day, shall notify Landlord in writing whether it desires to proceed with such change, addition or deletion. In the absence of such written authorization, Landlord shall have the option to continue work on the Premises disregarding the requested change, addition or alteration, or Landlord may elect to discontinue work on the Premises until it receives notice of Tenant's decision, in which event Tenant shall be responsible for any Tenant Delay in completion of the Premises resulting therefrom. If such revisions result in a higher estimate of the cost of construction and/or higher actual construction costs which exceed the Allowance, such increased estimate or costs shall be deemed Excess Costs pursuant to Paragraph 4 hereof and Tenant shall pay such Excess Costs, plus any applicable state sales or use tax thereon, upon demand.|
|6.||Following approval of the Plans and the payment by Tenant of the required portion of the Excess Costs, if any, Landlord shall cause the Landlord Work to be constructed substantially in accordance with the approved Plans. Landlord shall notify Tenant of substantial completion of the Landlord Work.|
|7.||Landlord, provided Tenant is not in default, agrees to provide Tenant with an allowance (the "Allowance") in an amount not to exceed $88,140.00 (i.e., $20.00 per rentable square foot of the Premises) to be applied toward the cost of the Landlord Work in the Premises. If the Allowance shall not be sufficient to complete the Landlord Work, Tenant shall pay the Excess Costs, plus any applicable state sales or use tax thereon, as prescribed in Paragraph 4 above. In the event the Allowance exceeds the cost of Landlord Work, Tenant shall have the right to apply up to $8,814.00 [i.e. $2.00 per rentable square foot of the Premises] (the "FFE Allowance") toward the cost of furniture, fixtures and equipment in connection with Tenant's improvements in the Premises. The FFE Allowance shall be paid to Tenant within thirty (30) days following receipt by Landlord of (1) receipted bills for furniture, fixtures and equipment; or, if applicable, full and final waivers of lien. The FFE Allowance shall be disbursed in the amount reflected on the receipted bills or lien waivers meeting the requirements above. Any portion of the Allowance which exceeds the cost of the Landlord Work or is in excess of the FFE Allowance or is otherwise remaining after February 28, 2003, shall accrue to the sole benefit of Landlord, it being agreed that Tenant shall not be entitled to any credit, offset, abatement or payment with respect thereto. Landlord shall be entitled to deduct from the Allowance a construction management fee for Landlord's oversight of the Landlord Work in an amount equal to 5% of the total cost of the Landlord Work.|
|8.||This Exhibit shall not be deemed applicable to any additional space added to the Premises at any time or from time to time, whether by any options under the Lease or otherwise, or to any portion of the original Premises or any additions to the Premises in the event of a renewal or extension of the original Term of the Lease, whether by any options under the Lease or otherwise, unless expressly so provided in the Lease or any amendment or supplement to the Lease.|
This Exhibit is attached to and made a part of the Lease and is entered into by and between EOP-WESTBROOK CORPORATE CENTER, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company ("Landlord") and ONLINE DATA CORP., a Delaware corporation ("Tenant") for space in the Building located at Two Westbrook Corporate Center, Westchester, Illinois.
|A.||During the Lease Term, Tenant agrees to lease from Landlord and Landlord agrees to lease to Tenant 1) fourteen (14) unreserved surface area parking spaces, 2) two (2) unassigned, reserved area parking spaces in the Executive Parking Structure (the "EPS") (collectively, "the Spaces") for the use of Tenant and its employees. No deductions or allowances shall be made for days when Tenant or any of its employees does not utilize the parking facilities or for Tenant utilizing less than all of the Spaces. Tenant shall not have the right to lease or otherwise use more than the number of Spaces set forth above.|
|B.||During the initial Lease Term, Tenant shall pay Landlord, as Additional Rent in accordance with Article IV of the Lease, 1) the sum of $(zero) per month plus applicable tax thereon, if any, for each unreserved surface area parking space leased by Tenant hereunder; plus, 2) the sum of $(zero) per month plus applicable tax thereon, if any, for each unassigned, reserved area parking space in the EPS leased by Tenant hereunder, all as such rates may be adjusted from time to time to reflect the then current rate for such parking.|
|C.||Except for particular spaces designated by Landlord for specific parkers, all parking in the reserved parking areas of the EPS and surface parking areas serving the Building shall be on a first-come, first-served basis. Although some spaces in the EPS have been designated for specific parkers, Tenant acknowledges that going forward, it is Landlord's intent that the EPS primarily be a reserved parking area but that individual stalls shall not be assigned to parkers. The spaces leased hereunder shall be leased for parking in reserved areas of the EPS and shall not be for specific EPS stalls.|
|D.||Landlord shall not be responsible for money, jewelry, automobiles or other personal property lost in or stolen from the EPS or the surface parking areas regardless of whether such loss or theft occurs when the EPS or other areas therein are locked or otherwise secured. Except as caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord and without limiting the terms of the preceding sentence, Landlord shall not be liable for any loss, injury or damage to persons using the EPS or the surface parking areas or automobiles or other property therein, it being agreed that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the use of the Spaces shall be at the sole risk of Tenant and its employees.|
|E.||Landlord shall have the right from time to time to designate the reserved parking areas for Spaces and to promulgate reasonable rules and regulations regarding the EPS, the Spaces and the use thereof, including, but not limited to, rules and regulations controlling the flow of traffic to and from various parking areas, the angle and direction of parking and the like. Tenant shall comply with and cause its employees to comply with all such rules and regulations as well as all reasonable additions and amendments thereto.|
|F.||Tenant shall not store or permit its employees to store any automobiles in the EPS or on the surface parking areas without the prior written consent of Landlord. Except for emergency repairs, Tenant and its employees shall not perform any work on any automobiles while located in the EPS or on the Property. If it is necessary for Tenant or its employees to leave an automobile in the EPS or on the surface parking areas overnight, Tenant shall provide Landlord with prior notice thereof designating the license plate number and model of such automobile.|
|G.||Landlord shall have the right to temporarily close the EPS or certain areas therein in order to perform necessary repairs, maintenance and improvements to the EPS or the surface parking areas, if any.|
|H.||Tenant shall not assign or sublease any of the Spaces without the consent of Landlord. Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Parking Agreement with respect to any Spaces that Tenant desires to sublet or assign.|
|I.||Landlord may elect to provide parking cards or keys to control access to the EPS. In such event, Landlord shall provide Tenant with one card or key for each Space that Tenant is leasing hereunder, provided that Landlord shall have the right to require Tenant or its employees to place a deposit on such access cards or keys and to pay a fee for any lost or damaged cards or keys.|
|J.||Landlord reserves the right from time to time, to terminate Tenant's right to all or any of the Spaces as follows: If Landlord determines by survey that Tenant is not using any of the Spaces on a consistent basis, Landlord shall notify Tenant that its continued failure to use all the Spaces on a consistent basis shall result in a reduction of the number of Spaces. If Tenant fails to resume the use of all the Spaces within 30 days following Landlord's notice, Landlord may, by an additional written notice to Tenant, reduce the Spaces based upon Landlord's survey.|
|K.||Landlord hereby reserves the right to enter into a management agreement or lease with an entity for the EPS ("EPS Operator"). In such event, Tenant, upon request of Landlord, shall enter into a parking agreement with the EPS Operator and pay the EPS Operator the monthly charge established hereunder, and Landlord shall have no liability for claims arising through acts or omissions of the EPS Operator unless caused by Landlord's negligence or willful misconduct. It is understood and agreed that the identity of the EPS Operator may change from time to time during the Term. Tenant hereby consents to the assignment, from time to time, of the initial or any successor EPS Operator's interest in the EPS to another EPS Operator.|
