USE Subject to the restrictions contained in paragraph 6, Tenant shall use the Premises for general office use, light manufacturing and research and development and shall not use or permit the Premises to be used for any other purpose. 2. TERM The term shall be for five (5) years (unless sooner terminated as hereinafter provided) and, subject to paragraph 3, shall commence on January 1, 1998 and end on December 31, 2002. 3. POSSESSION (a) If Landlord for any reason cannot deliver possession of the Premises to Tenant by the scheduled commencement date set forth in paragraph 2, this lease shall not be void or voidable, Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any loss or damage on account thereof and Tenant shall not be liable for rent until Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant. If the term 1 <PAGE> 6 commences on a date other than the date specified in paragraph 2 above, then the parties shall immediately execute an amendment to this lease stating (or a letter acknowledging) the actual date of commencement and the revised expiration date. The expiration date of the term shall be extended by the same number of days that Tenant's possession of the Premises was delayed from that set forth in paragraph 2. (b) Tenant's inability or failure to take possession of the Premises when delivery is tendered by Landlord shall not delay the commencement of the term of this lease or Tenant's obligation to pay rent. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord shall incur significant expenses upon the execution of this lease, even if Tenant never takes possession of the Premises, including without limitation brokerage commissions and fees, legal fees and other professional fees. Tenant acknowledges that all of said expenses shall be included in measuring Landlord's damages should Tenant breach the terms of this lease. 4. MONTHLY RENT (a) Basic Rent. Tenant shall pay to Landlord as basic rent for the Premises, in advance and subject to adjustment as provided in paragraph 5, the sum of Thirty-Three Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty-one Dollars ($33,981.00) on or before the first day of the first full calendar month of the term and on or before the first day of each and every successive calendar month. Basic rent for any partial month shall be payable in advance and shall be prorated based on the actual number of days during the lease term occurring in such month divided by the total number of days in such month. (b) Direct Expenses. In addition to the above basic rent and as additional rent, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, subject to adjustment and reconciliation as provided in paragraph 5(b) of this lease, the sum of Eleven Thousand Three Hundred Twenty-Seven Dollars ($11,327.00) on or before the first day of the first full calendar month of the term and on the first day of each and every successive calendar month, said sum representing Tenant's estimated payment of its percentage share of direct expenses as provided for in paragraph 5(b) of this lease.

If any portion of said deposit is so used, Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after written demand therefor, deposit cash with Landlord in the amount sufficient to restore the security deposit to its original amount; Tenant's failure to do so shall be a material breach of this lease.

If Tenant is not in default at the expiration or termination of this lease, the security deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Tenant has vacated the Premises. In the event of termination of Landlord's interest in this lease, Landlord shall transfer said deposit to Landlord's successor in interest, and Tenant agrees that Landlord shall thereupon be released from liability for the return of such deposit or any accounting therefor. 5.

Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, obtain flood and/or earthquake insurance. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant if Landlord elects not to obtain flood and/or earthquake insurance. The cost of all such insurance purchased by Landlord, plus any charges for deferred payment of premiums and the amount of any deductible incurred upon any covered loss within the Project, shall be direct expenses and Tenant shall pay to Landlord its percentage share of such costs as provided in paragraphs 4(b) and 5(b). Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, in the event that Tenant's percentage share of the deductible for earthquake insurance exceeds Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($75,000), the amount of such excess shall be amortized in equal monthly installments over the ten (10) year period from the date of the casualty (including interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per year and Tenant shall pay each such monthly installment which arises during the term of this lease (and any extended term) at the same time and in the same manner as payments of basic rent are due hereunder and Tenant shall not be obligated for the unamortized portion of the deductible remaining at the end of the lease term. If the cost of insurance is increased due to Tenant's use of the Premises, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord upon demand the full cost of such increase. 12 <PAGE> 17 Landlord and Tenant hereby mutually waive any and all rights of recovery against one another for real or personal property loss or damage occurring to the Premises or the Project, or any part thereof, or to any personal property therein, from perils insured against under fire and extended insurance and any other property insurance policies existing for the benefit of the respective parties. The property insurance coverage obtained by each party pursuant to this lease shall include, without limitation, a waiver or subrogation by the carrier which conforms to the provisions of this paragraph. If Tenant does not take out and maintain insurance as required pursuant to this paragraph 11, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, take out the necessary insurance and pay the premium therefor, and Tenant shall repay to Landlord promptly on demand, as additional rent, the amount so paid. In addition, Landlord may recover from Tenant and Tenant agrees to pay, as additional rent, any and all reasonable expenses (including attorney fees) and damages which Landlord may sustain by reason of the failure of Tenant to obtain and maintain such insurance, it being expressly declared that the expenses and damages of Landlord shall not be limited to the amount of the premiums thereon. 12. UTILITIES AND SERVICE Landlord shall furnish to the Premises and to the Project, during reasonable business hours of generally recognized business days (i.e., Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. through 4 p.m., excluding locally and nationally recognized holidays), to be determined by Landlord in Landlord's reasonable discretion, and subject to the rules and regulations of the Project, reasonable quantities of water, gas and electricity suitable for the intended use of the Premises and the Project, heat and air conditioning required in Landlord's judgment for the comfortable use and occupation of the Premises and the Project, refuse collection and janitorial services. Tenant agrees that at all times it will cooperate fully with Landlord and abide by all regulations and requirements that Landlord may prescribe for the proper functioning and protection of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. The cost of all utilities and services furnished by Landlord to the Premises and to the Project shall be direct expenses and Tenant shall pay its percentage share of such costs to Landlord as provided in paragraphs 4 and 5. In addition, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the reasonable cost of providing HVAC during non-business hours. The current hourly charge for such additional HVAC is $25.00 per hour, subject to change in Landlord's reasonable discretion. Landlord shall not be liable for, and Tenant shall not be entitled to any abatement or reduction of rent by reason of, Landlord's failure to furnish any of the foregoing services when such failure is caused by accident, breakage, repairs, strikes, lockouts or other labor disturbances or labor disputes of any 13 <PAGE> 18 character, governmental moratoriums, regulations or other governmental actions, or by any other cause, similar or dissimilar, beyond the reasonable control of Landlord. In addition, Tenant shall not be relieved from the performance of any covenant or agreement in this lease because of any such failure, and no eviction of Tenant shall result from such failure. Tenant will not, without the written consent of Landlord, use any apparatus or device in the Premises (including, without limitation, electronic data processing machines, punch card machines or machines using current in excess of 110 volts) which will in any way increase the amount of electricity, water or air conditioning usually furnished or supplied to premises in the Project being used as general office space, or connect with electric current (except through existing electrical outlets in the Premises) or with water pipes any apparatus or device for the purpose of using electric current or water. If Tenant shall require water or electric current in excess of that usually furnished or supplied to premises in the Project being used as general office space, then Tenant shall first obtain the written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord promptly on demand, as additional rent, the full cost of such excess use. Landlord may cause an electric current or water meter to be installed in the Premises in order to measure the amount of electric current or water consumed for any such excess use. The cost of any such meter and of the installation, maintenance and repair thereof, and all charges for such excess water and electric current consumed (as shown by meters and at the rates then charged by the furnishing public utility) plus any additional expense incurred by Landlord in keeping account of electric current or water so consumed, shall be paid by Tenant, and Tenant agrees to pay Landlord therefor promptly upon demand by Landlord. Whenever heat generating machines or equipment are used in the Premises by Tenant which affect the temperature otherwise maintained by the air conditioning system, Landlord shall have the right to install supplementary air conditioning units in the Premises and the cost thereof, including the cost of installation and the cost of operation and maintenance thereof, shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon demand by Landlord as additional rent. Tenant shall install, at Tenant's cost, a by-pass timer (to be approved by Landlord) to monitor and measure Tenant's usage of HVAC system after normal business hours to permit billing for excess usage as provided above. 13. TAXES AND OTHER CHMGES All real estate taxes and assessments and other taxes, fees and charges of every kind or nature, foreseen or unforeseen, which are levied, assessed or imposed upon Landlord and/ or against the Premises, building, Common Area or Project or any part thereof by any federal, state, county, regional, municipal or other 14 <PAGE> 19 governmental or quasi-governmental or special district authority, together with any increases therein whether resulting from increased rate and/or valuation, shall be a direct expense and Tenant shall pay its percentage share of such costs to Landlord as provided in paragraphs 4 and 5. By way of illustration and not limitation, "other taxes, fees and charges" as used herein include any and all taxes payable by Landlord (other than state and federal personal or corporate income taxes measured by the net income of Landlord from all sources, premium taxes and Landlord's franchise, estate, inheritance and gift taxes), whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties hereto, (i) upon, allocable to, or measured by the rent payable hereunder, including, without limitation, any gross income or excise tax levied by the local, state or federal government with respect to the receipt of such rent, (ii) upon or with respect to the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any part thereof, (iii) upon or measured by the value of Tenant's personal property or leasehold improvements located in the Premises, (iv) upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring an interest or estate in the Premises, (v) upon or with respect to vehicles, parking or the number of persons employed on or about the Project, and (vi) any tax, license, franchise fee or other imposition upon Landlord which is otherwise measured by or based in whole or in part upon the Project or any portion thereof. The following shall not constitute real property taxes for the purposes of this lease, and nothing contained herein shall be deemed to require Tenant to pay any of the following: (i) any state, local, federal, personal or corporate income tax measured by the net income of Landlord (as opposed to rents or receipts); (ii) any estate or inheritance taxes; (iii) any franchise, succession or transfer taxes; (iv) interest on taxes or penalties resulting from Landlord's failure to pay taxes; or (v) any increases in taxes attributable to additional improvements to the Project to the extent such improvements are above building standard and constructed for one tenant's sole benefit. If Landlord contests any such tax, fee or charge, the cost and expense incurred by Landlord thereby (including, but not limited to, reasonable costs of attorneys and experts) shall also be direct expenses and Tenant shall pay its percentage share of such costs to Landlord as provided in paragraphs 4 and 5. In the event the Premises and any improvements installed therein by Tenant or Landlord are valued by the assessor disproportionately higher than those of other tenants in the building or Project or in the event alterations or improvements are made to the Premises, Tenant's percentage share of such taxes, assessments, fees and/or charges shall be readjusted upward accordingly and Tenant agrees to pay such readjusted share. Such determination shall be made by Landlord from the respective valuations assigned in the assessor's work sheet or such other information as may be reasonably available and Landlord's determination thereof shall be conclusive. 15 <PAGE> 20 Tenant agrees to pay, before delinquency, any and all taxes levied or assessed during the term hereof upon Tenant's equipment, furniture, fixtures and other personal property located in the Premises, including carpeting and other property installed by Tenant notwithstanding that such carpeting or other property has become a part of the Premises. If any of Tenant's personal property shall be assessed with the Project, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additional rent, the amounts attributable to Tenant's personal property within ten (10) business days after receipt of a written statement from Landlord setting forth the amount of such taxes, assessments and public charges attributable to Tenant's personal property. 14. ENTRY BY LANDLORD Landlord reserves, and shall at all reasonable times have, the right to enter the Premises (i) to inspect the Premises, (ii) to supply services to be provided by Landlord hereunder, (iii) to show the Premises to prospective purchasers, lenders or tenants and during the last six (6) months of the term only to put I for sale' or 'for lease' signs thereon, (iv) to post notices required or allowed by this lease or by law, (v) to alter, improve or repair the Premises and any portion of the Project, and (vi) to erect scaffolding and other necessary structures in or through the Premises or the Project where reasonably required by the character of the work to be performed. Any such entry onto the Premises by Landlord shall be preceded by notice thereof to Tenant at lease twenty-four (24) hours in advance (except in the case of emergency, in which event no such notice shall be necessary) and conducted in a reasonable manner, with due consideration to minimizing interference to Tenant and Tenant's use of the Premises. Landlord shall not be liable in any manner for any inconvenience, disturbance, loss of business, nuisance or other damage arising from Landlord's entry and acts pursuant to this paragraph 14 and Tenant shall not be entitled to an abatement or reduction of rent if Landlord exercises any rights reserved in this paragraph 14. For each of the foregoing purposes, Landlord shall at all times have and retain a key with which to unlock all of the doors in, on and about the Premises (excluding Tenant's vaults, safes and similar areas designated in writing by Tenant in advance), and Landlord shall have the right to use any and all means which Landlord may deem proper to open said doors in an emergency in order to obtain entry to the Premises. Any entry by Landlord to the Premises pursuant to this paragraph 14 shall not under any circumstances be construed or deemed to be a forcible or unlawful entry into or a detainer of the Premises or an eviction, actual or constructive, of Tenant from the Premises or any portion thereof. 15. COMMON AREA; PARKING Subject to the terms and conditions of this lease and such rules and regulations as Landlord may from time to time prescribe, Tenant and Tenant's employees and invitees shall, in 16 <PAGE> 21 common with other occupants of the Project, and their respective employees and invitees and others entitled to the use thereof, have the nonexclusive right to use those areas of the Common Area designated by Landlord for the general use and convenience of the occupants of the Project (which areas and facilities shall include, but not be limited to, common lobbies, corridors, restrooms and showers; telephone, electrical, janitorial and mechanical rooms; elevators, stairwells, vertical duct shafts; sidewalks; parking, refuse, landscape and plaza areas; roofs; building exteriors; electrical, mechanical, plumbing and HVAC systems; and storage areas), which areas and facilities are referred to herein as "Common Area". This right shall terminate upon the termination of this lease. Landlord reserves the right from time to time to make changes in the shape, size, location, amount and extent of the Common Area. Landlord shall also have the right at any time to change the name, number or designation by which the Project is commonly known. Landlord further reserves the right to promulgate such rules and regulations relating to the use of the Common Area, and any part thereof, as Landlord may deem appropriate for the best interests of the occupants of the Project. The rules and regulations shall be binding upon Tenant upon delivery of a copy of them to Tenant and Tenant shall abide by them and cooperate in their observance. Such rules and regulations may be amended by Landlord from time to time, with or without advance notice. Tenant shall have the nonexclusive use of eighty-five (85) parking spaces in the Common Area as designated from time to time by Landlord. Landlord reserves the right at its sole option to assign and label parking spaces, but it is specifically agreed that Landlord is not responsible for policing any such parking spaces. Tenant shall not at any time park or permit the parking of Tenant's trucks or other vehicles, or the trucks or other vehicles of others, adjacent to loading areas so as to interfere in any way with the use of such areas; nor shall Tenant at any time park or permit the parking of Tenant's vehicles or trucks, or the vehicles or trucks of Tenant's suppliers or others, in any portion of the Common Area not designated by Landlord for such use by Tenant. Tenant shall not park or permit any inoperative vehicle or equipment to be parked on any portion of the Common Area. Landlord shall operate, manage and maintain the Common Area. The manner in which the Common Area shall be operated, managed and maintained and the expenditures for such operation, management and maintenance shall be at the sole discretion of Landlord. Subject to the express limitations of paragraph 5(b) hereof, the cost of such maintenance, operation and management of the Common Area, together with the costs of security and exterminator services and salaries and employee benefits (including union benefits) of on-site and accounting personnel engaged in such maintenance and operations management, shall be a direct expense 17 <PAGE> 22 and Tenant shall pay to Landlord its percentage share of such costs as provided in paragraphs 4 and 5. 16. DAMAGE BY FIRE; CASUALTY In the event the Premises are damaged by any casualty which is covered under an insurance policy required to be maintained by Landlord pursuant to paragraph 11, Landlord shall be entitled to the use of all insurance proceeds and shall repair such damage as soon as reasonably possible and this lease shall continue in full force and effect. In the event the Premises are damaged by any casualty not covered under an insurance policy required to be maintained pursuant to paragraph 11, Landlord may, at Landlord's option, either (i) repair such damage, at Landlord's expense, as soon as reasonably possible, in which event this lease shall continue in full force and effect, or (ii) give written notice to Tenant within thirty (30) days after the date of the occurrence of such damages of Landlord's intention to cancel and terminate this lease as of the date of the occurrence of the damages; provided, however, that if such damage is caused by an act or omission of Tenant or its agent, servants or employees and the cost thereof is not covered by insurance maintained by Landlord, then Tenant shall repair such damage promptly at its sole cost and expense. In the event Landlord elects to terminate this lease pursuant hereto, Tenant shall have the right within ten (10) days after receipt of the required notice to notify Landlord in writing of Tenant's intention to repair such damage at Tenant's expense, without reimbursement from Landlord, in which event this lease shall continue in full force and effect and Tenant shall proceed to make such repairs as soon as reasonably possible. If Tenant does not give such notice within the ten (10) day period, this lease shall be cancelled and terminated as of the date of the occurrence of such damage. Under no circumstances shall Landlord be required to repair any injury or damage to (by fire or other cause), or to make any restoration or replacement of, any of Tenant's personal property, trade fixtures or property leased from third parties, whether or not the same is attached to the Premises. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary above, if thirty percent (30%) or more of the Premises are damaged or destroyed during the term from any cause (including any destruction required by any authorized public authority) , whether or not covered by the insurance required under paragraph 11, if in Landlord's reasonable business judgment the Premises cannot reasonably and lawfully be repaired or restored within nine (9) months of the date of destruction to substantially the condition existing prior to such damage or destruction, then either Landlord or Tenant may elect within thirty (30) days after the date of such determination to terminate this lease effective as of the date of such damage or destruction. If the Premises are totally destroyed during the last twelve (12) months of the term, either Landlord or 18 <PAGE> 23 Tenant may at its option cancel and terminate this lease as of the date of occurrence of such damage by giving written notice to the other of its election to do so within thirty (30) days after the occurrence of such damage. If the Premises are partially or totally destroyed or damaged and Landlord or Tenant repair them pursuant to this lease, the rent payable hereunder for the period during which such damage and repair continues shall be abated only to the extent that Landlord received proceeds from any policy of rental income insurance. Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord for any damage, loss or expense suffered by reason of any such damage, destruction, repair or restoration. The parties waive the provisions of California Civil Code Sections 1932(2) and 1933(4) (which provisions permit the termination of a lease upon destruction of the leased premises), and hereby agree that the provisions of this paragraph 16 shall govern in the event of such destruction. 17. INDEMNIFICATION Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant and Tenant hereby waives all claims against Landlord for any injury to or death of any person or damage to or destruction of property in or about the Premises or the Project by or from any cause whatsoever except (i) the failure of Landlord to perform its obligations under this lease where such failure has persisted for an unreasonable period of time after notice of such failure or (ii) the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or Landlord's agents, employees or contractors. Without limiting the foregoing, Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any injury to or death of any person or damages to or destruction of property by reason of, or arising from, any latent defect in the Premises or Project or the act or negligence of any other tenant of the Project. Tenant shall immediately notify Landlord of any defect in the Premises or Project actually known by Tenant. Except as to injury to persons or damage to property the principal cause of which is (i) the failure by Landlord to observe any of the terms and conditions of this lease or (ii) the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or Landlord's agents, employees or contractors, Tenant shall hold Landlord harmless from and indemnify and defend Landlord against any claim, liability, loss, damage or expense (including attorney fees) arising out of any injury to or death of any person or damage to or destruction of property occurring in, on or about the Premises from any cause whatsoever or on account of the use, condition, occupational safety or occupancy of the Premises. Tenant shall further hold Landlord harmless from and indemnify and defend Landlord against any claim, liability, loss, damage or expense (including attorney fees) arising (i) from Tenant's use of the Premises or from the conduct of its business or from any activity or work done, permitted or Suffered by Tenant or its agents or employees in or about the 19 <PAGE> 24 Premises or Project, (ii) out of the failure of Tenant to observe or comply with Tenant's obligation to observe and comply with laws or other requirements as set forth in paragraph 7, (iii) by reason of Tenant's use, handling, storage, or disposal of toxic or hazardous materials or waste, (iv) by reason of any labor or service performed for, or materials used by or furnished to, Tenant or any contractor engaged by Tenant with respect to the Premises, or (v) from any other act, neglect, or fault of Tenant or its agents, contractors or employees. The provisions of this paragraph 17 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this lease. 18. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING Tenant shall not voluntarily assign, encumber or otherwise transfer its interest in this lease or in the Premises, or sublease all or any part of the Premises, or allow any other person or entity to occupy or use all or any part of the Premises, without first obtaining Landlord's written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and otherwise complying with the requirements of this paragraph 18. Any assignment, encumbrance or sublease without Landlord's consent, shall constitute a default. If Tenant desires to sublet or assign all or any portion of the Premises, Tenant shall give Landlord written notice thereof, specifying the projected commencement date of the proposed sublet or assignment (which date shall be not less than thirty (30) days or more than one hundred eighty (180) days after the date of Landlord's receipt of such notice), the portions of the Premises proposed to be sublet or assigned, the terms and conditions of the proposed assignment or sublease (including the rent to be paid by the proposed assignee or subtenant) and the name, address and telephone number of the proposed assignee or subtenant. Tenant shall further provide Landlord with such other information concerning the proposed assignee or subtenant as requested by Landlord. Except for an assignment or sublet to a Tenant Affiliate (as defined below) or an assignment or sublet that terminates on or before May 31, 2000, for a period of thirty (30) days after Landlord's receipt of Tenant's written notice, Landlord shall have the option, exercisable by delivering written notice to Tenant, to terminate this lease as of the date specified in Landlord's written notice to Tenant, which date shall not be less than thirty (30) days nor more than ninety (90) days after the date of Landlord's written notice to Tenant. If Landlord exercises its option to terminate this lease as provided in the foregoing sentence, Landlord may, if it so elects, enter into a new lease for the Premises or any portion thereof with the proposed assignee or subtenant or any other third party on such terms as Landlord and such proposed assignee or subtenant or other third party may agree; in such event, Tenant shall not be entitled to any portion of the 20 <PAGE> 25 profit, if any, which Landlord may realize on account of such termination and reletting. If Landlord does not elect to terminate this lease as provided hereinabove in this paragraph 18 and if Landlord consents in writing to the proposed assignment or sublet, Tenant shall be free to assign or sublet all or a portion of the Premises subject to the following conditions: (i) any sublease shall be on the same terms set forth in the notice given to Landlord; (ii) no sublease shall be valid and no subtenant shall take possession of the sublet premises until an executed counterpart of such sublease has been delivered to Landlord; (iii) no subtenant shall have a further right to sublet; (iv) any sums or other economic consideration received by Tenant as a result of such assignment or sublet (except rental or other payments received which are attributable to the amortization over the term of this lease of the cost of leasehold improvements constructed for such assignees or subtenant, and brokerage fees) whether denominated rentals or otherwise, which exceed, in the aggregate, the total sums which Tenant is obligated to pay Landlord under this lease (prorated to reflect obligations allocable to that portion of the Premises subject to such sublease), shall be payable to Landlord as additional rent under this lease without affecting or reducing any other obligation of Tenant hereunder; (v) no sublet or assignment shall release Tenant of Tenant's obligation or alter the primary liability of Tenant to pay the rent and to perform all other obligations to be performed by Tenant hereunder; and (vi) any assignee or subtenant must expressly agree to assume and perform all of the covenants and conditions of Tenant under this lease. Tenant shall pay to Landlord promptly upon demand as additional rent, Landlord's reasonable attorneys, fees and other costs incurred for reviewing, processing or documenting any requested assignment or sublease, whether or not Landlord's consent is granted. Tenant shall not be entitled to assign this lease or sublease all or any part of the Premises (and any attempt to do so shall be voidable by Landlord) during any period in which Tenant is in default under this lease. If Tenant is a partnership, a withdrawal or change, voluntary or involuntary or by operation of law, of any general partner or the dissolution of the partnership shall be deemed an assignment of this lease subject to all the conditions of this paragraph 18. If Tenant is a corporation any dissolution, merger, consolidation or other reorganization of Tenant or the sale or other transfer of a controlling percentage of the capital stock of Tenant or the sale of more than fifty percent (50%) of the value of Tenant's assets shall be an assignment of this lease subject to all the conditions of this paragraph 18. The term "controlling percentage" means the ownership of, and the right to vote, stock possessing more than 50% of the total combined voting power of all classes of Tenant's capital stock issued, outstanding and entitled to vote. This paragraph shall not apply if Tenant is a corporation the stock of which is traded through an exchange. 21 <PAGE> 26 The acceptance of rent by Landlord from any other person shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of any provision hereof. Consent to one assignment or sublet shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent assignment or sublet. In the event of default by any assignee of Tenant or any successor of Tenant in the performance of any of the terms hereof, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant without the necessity of exhausting remedies against such assignee or successor. Landlord may consent to subsequent assignments or sublets of this lease or amendments or modifications to this lease with assignees of Tenant, without notifying Tenant, or any successor of Tenant, and without obtaining its or their consent thereto and such action shall not relieve Tenant of liability under this lease. No interest of Tenant in this lease shall be assignable by operation of law (including, without limitation, the transfer of this lease by testacy or intestacy). Each of the following acts shall be considered an involuntary assignment: (i) if Tenant is or becomes bankrupt or insolvent, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or institutes a proceeding under the Bankruptcy Act in which Tenant is the bankrupt; or, if Tenant is a partnership or consists of more than one person or entity, if any partner of the partnership or other person or entity is or becomes bankrupt or insolvent, or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) if a writ of attachment or execution is levied on this lease; or (iii) if , in any proceeding or action to which Tenant is a party, a receiver is appointed with authority to take possession of the Premises. An involuntary assignment shall constitute a default by Tenant and Landlord shall have the right to elect to terminate this lease, in which case this lease shall not be treated as an asset of Tenant. Tenant immediately and irrevocably assigns to Landlord, as security for Tenant's obligations under this lease, all rent from any subletting of all or a part of the Premises as permitted by this lease, and Landlord, as assignee of Tenant, or a receiver of Tenant appointed on Landlord's application, may collect such rent and apply it toward Tenant's obligations under this lease; except that, until the occurrence of an act or default by Tenant, Tenant shall have the right to collect such rent, subject to promptly forwarding to Landlord any portion thereof to which Landlord is entitled pursuant to this paragraph 18. Notwithstanding the above, Tenant may assign this Lease or sublet any portion of the Premises without Landlord's consent to any of the following (i) any corporation which controls, is controlled by or under common control with Tenant; (ii) any corporation resulting from the merger or consolidation of Tenant and (iii) any person or entity which acquires all of the assets of Tenant as a going concern of the business that is being conducted on the Premises, including this lease (collectively, "Tenant Affiliate"), provided that (a) such Tenant Affiliate assumes in full the obligations of Tenant under this lease; (b) the Tenant 22 <PAGE> 27 Affiliate's financial condition is adequate in Landlord's reasonable discretion to support the lease obligations of the Tenant Affiliate under the assignment or sublease, and, in the case of a merger, consolidation or acquisition, the Tenant Affiliate, or in all other cases, the Tenant and the Tenant Affiliate together, shall have a net worth, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, which is equal to or greater than the net worth of Tenant herein named immediately prior to such transfer, (c) proof satisfactory to Landlord of such net worth shall have been delivered to Landlord at least ten (10) days prior to the effective date of any such transaction, (d) Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord of such assignment and otherwise comply with the terms of this paragraph 18 (excluding only the requirement to obtain Landlord's prior written consent), and (e) Tenant (if a separate entity) shall continue to be jointly and severally liable under this lease. 19. DEFAULT The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute a default by Tenant: (i) failure of Tenant to pay any rent or other sum payable hereunder within five (5) days after the date that such payment becomes due; (ii) abandonment of the Premises (Tenant's failure to occupy and conduct business in the Premises for fourteen (14) consecutive days shall be deemed an abandonment); (iii) failure of Tenant to deliver to Landlord any instrument, assurance, financial statement, subordination agreement or certificate of estoppel required under this Lease within the time period specified for such performance if the failure continues for five (5) business days after written notice of the failure from Landlord to Tenant; or (iv) failure of Tenant to perform any other obligation under this lease if the failure to perform is not cured within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof has been given to Tenant (provided that if such default cannot reasonably be cured within thirty (30) days, Tenant shall not be in default if Tenant commences to cure such failure to perform within the thirty (30) day period and diligently and in good faith continues to cure the failure to perform), except in the case of an emergency or dangerous condition, in which case Tenant's time to perform shall be that time period which is reasonable under the circumstances. The notice referred to in clauses (iii) and (iv) above shall specify the failure to perform and the applicable lease provision and shall demand that Tenant perform the provisions of this lease within the applicable period of time. No notice shall be deemed a forfeiture or termination of this lease unless Landlord so elects in the notice. No notice shall be required in the event of abandonment or vacation of the Premises. In addition to the above, the occurrence of any of the following events shall also constitute a default by Tenant: (i) Tenant fails to pay its debts as they become due or admits in writing its inability to pay its debts, or makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) Tenant fails to 23 <PAGE> 28 furnish to Landlord a schedule of Tenant's aged accounts payable within ten (10) days after Landlord's written request; or (iii) any financial statements given to Landlord by Tenant, any assignee of Tenant, subtenant of Tenant, any guarantor of Tenant, or successor in interest of Tenant (including, without limitation, any schedule of Tenant's aged accounts payable) are materially false. At any time during the term of this lease Landlord, at Landlord's option, shall have the right to receive from Tenant, upon Landlord's request, a current annual balance sheet for Landlord's review. If the balance sheet shows a negative net worth, Landlord may terminate this lease by giving Tenant sixty (60) days prior written notice. In the event of a default by Tenant, then Landlord, in addition to any other rights and remedies of Landlord at law or in equity, shall have the right either to terminate Tenant's right to possession of the Premises (and thereby terminate this lease) or, from time to time and without termination of this lease to relet the Premises or any part thereof for such term and on such terms and conditions as Landlord in its sole discretion may deem advisable, with the right to make alterations and repairs to the Premises and such reletting shall not be deemed a termination of this lease. Should Landlord elect to keep this lease in full force and effect, Landlord shall have the right to enforce all of Landlord's rights and remedies under this lease, including but not limited to the right to recover and to relet the Premises and such other rights and remedies as Landlord may have under California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (or successor Code section) or any other California statute. If Landlord relets the Premises, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as soon as ascertained, the costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in such reletting and in making alterations and repairs. Rentals received by Landlord from such reletting shall be applied (i) to the payment of any indebtedness due hereunder, other than basic rent and direct expenses, from Tenant to Landlord, (ii) to the payment of the cost of any repairs necessary to return the Premises to good condition normal wear and tear excepted, including the cost of alterations and the cost of storing any of Tenant's property left on the Premises at the time of reletting, and (iii) to the payment of basic rent or direct expenses due and unpaid hereunder. The residue, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future rent or damages in the event of termination as the same may become due and payable hereunder and the balance, if any at the end of the term of this lease, shall be paid to Tenant. Should the basic rent and direct expenses received from time to time from such reletting during any month be less than that agreed to be paid during that month by Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall pay such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly. No such reletting of the Premises by Landlord shall be construed as election on its part to terminate this lease unless a notice of such intention if given to Tenant or unless the termination hereof 24 <PAGE> 29 is decreed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any such reletting without termination, Landlord may at any time thereafter elect to terminate this lease for such previous breach, provided it has not been cured. Should Landlord at any time terminate this lease for any breach, in addition to any other remedy it may have, it shall have the immediate right of entry and may remove all persons and property from the Premises and shall have all the rights and remedies of a landlord provided by California Civil Code Section 1951.2 or any successor code section. Upon such termination, in addition to all its other rights and remedies, Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant all damages it may incur by reason of such breach, including the cost of recovering the Premises and including (i) the worth at the time of award of the unpaid rent which had been earned at the time of termination, (ii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided, (iii) the worth at the time of the award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided, (iv) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant's failure to perform its obligations under this lease or which in the ordinary course of events would be likely to result therefrom. The "worth at the time of award" of the amounts referred to in (i) and (ii) above is computed by allowing interest at the lesser of the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum or the maximum rate permitted by law. The "worth at the time of award" of the amount referred to in (iii) above shall be 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 the provisions of Section 1179 of the California Code of Civil Procedure (which Section allows Tenant to petition a court of competent jurisdiction for relief against forfeiture of this lease). Property removed from the Premises may be stored in a public or private warehouse or elsewhere at the sole cost and expense of Tenant. In the event that Tenant shall not immediately pay the cost of storage of such property after the same has been stored for a period of thirty (30) days or more, Landlord may sell any or all thereof at a public or private sale in such manner and at such times and places that Landlord, in its sole discretion, may deem proper, without notice to or demand upon Tenant. 20. LANDLORD'S RIGHT TO CURE TENANT'S DEFAULT Landlord, at any time after Tenant commits a default (as specified in paragraph 19 above), may, but shall not be obligated to, cure the default at Tenant's cost. If Landlord at any time, by reason of Tenant's default, pays any sum or does any act that requires the payment of any sum, the sum paid by Landlord shall be 25 <PAGE> 30 due immediately from Tenant to Landlord and shall bear interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, from the date the sum is paid by Landlord until Landlord is reimbursed by Tenant. Amounts due Landlord hereunder shall be additional rent. 21. EMINENT DOMAIN If all or any part of the Premises shall be taken by any public or quasi-public authority under the power of eminent domain or conveyance in lieu thereof, this lease shall terminate as to any portion of the Premises so taken or conveyed on the date when title vests in the condemnor, and Landlord shall be entitled to any and all payments, income, rent, award or any interest therein whatsoever which may be paid or made in connection with such taking or conveyance. Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord or otherwise for the value of any unexpired term of this lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall be entitled to any compensation for depreciation to and cost of removal of Tenant's equipment and fixtures and any compensation for its relocation expenses necessitated by such taking, but in each case only to the extent the condemning authority makes a separate award therefor or specifically identifies a portion of the award as being therefor. Each party waives the provisions of Section 1265.130 of the California Code of Civil Procedure (which section allows either party to petition the Superior Court to terminate this lease in the event of a partial taking of the Premises). If any action or proceeding is commenced for such taking of the Premises or any portion thereof or of any other space in the Project, or if Landlord is advised in writing by any entity or body having the right or power of condemnation of its intention to condemn the premises or any portion thereof or of any other space in the Project, and Landlord shall decide to discontinue the use and operation of the Project or decide to demolish, alter or rebuild the Project, then Landlord shall have the right to terminate this lease by giving Tenant written notice thereof within sixty (60) days of the earlier of the date of Landlord's receipt of such notice of intention to condemn or the commencement of said action or proceeding. Such termination shall be effective as of the last day of the calendar month next following the month in which such notice is given or the date on which title shall vest in the condemnor, whichever occurs first. In the event of a partial taking, or conveyance in lieu thereof, of the Premises and fifty percent (50%) or more of the number of square feet in the Premises are taken then Tenant may terminate this lease. Any election by Tenant to so terminate shall be by written notice given to Landlord within sixty (60) days from the date of such taking or conveyance and shall be effective on the last day of the calendar month next following the month in which such notice is given or the date on which title shall vest in the condemnor, whichever occurs first. 26 <PAGE> 31 If a portion of the Premises is taken by power of eminent domain or conveyance in lieu thereof and neither Landlord nor Tenant terminates this lease as provided above, then this lease shall continue in full force and effect as to the part of the Premises not so taken or conveyed and all payments of rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such taking or conveyance so that thereafter the amounts to be paid by Tenant shall be in the ratio that the area of the portion of the Premises not so taken bears to the total area of the Premises prior to such taking. 22. NOTICE AND COVENANT TO SURRENDER On the last day of the term or on the effective date of any earlier termination, Tenant shall surrender to Landlord the Premises in its condition existing as of the commencement of the term, normal wear and tear and damage due to casualty or the failure of Landlord to fulfill Landlord's obligations to maintain and repair the Premises as provided for herein excepted, and, except as otherwise provided by Landlord pursuant to the terms of paragraph 8 of this lease, all of the improvements and alterations made to the Premises in their condition existing as of the date of completion of construction and/or installation (normal wear and tear excepted), interior vinyl covered walls cleaned and repaired or replaced if marked or damaged, to the reasonable satisfaction of Landlord. On or prior to the last day of the term or the effective date of any earlier termination, Tenant shall remove all of Tenant's personal property and trade fixtures, together with improvements or alterations that Tenant is obligated to remove pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 8 of this lease, from the Premises, and all such property not removed shall be deemed abandoned. In addition, on or prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this lease, Tenant shall remove, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, all telephone, other communication, computer and any other cabling and wiring or any sort installed in the space above the suspended ceiling of the Premises or anywhere else in the Premises and shall promptly repair any damage to the suspended ceiling, lights, light fixtures, walls and any other part of the Premises resulting from such removal. If the Premises are not surrendered as required in this paragraph 22, Tenant shall indemnify Landlord against all loss, liability and expense (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney fees) resulting from the failure by Tenant in so surrendering the Premises, including, without limitation, any claims made by any succeeding tenants. It is agreed between Landlord and Tenant that the provisions of this paragraph 22 shall survive termination of this lease. 23. TENANT'S QUITCLAIM At the expiration or earlier termination of this lease, tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord, within ten (10) days after written demand from Landlord to Tenant, any 27 <PAGE> 32 quitclaim deed or other document required to remove the cloud or encumbrance created by this lease from the real property of which the Premises are a part. This obligation shall survive said expiration or termination. 24. HOLDING OVER Any holding over after the expiration or termination of this lease with the written consent of Landlord shall be construed to be a tenancy from month-to-month at the monthly rent then agreed upon by Landlord and Tenant, but in no event less than the monthly rent payable under this lease for the last lease month before the date of such expiration or termination. All provisions of this lease, except (i) as modified by the preceding sentence and (ii) those provisions pertaining to the term, expansion rights and any option to extend, shall apply to the month-to-month tenancy. If Tenant shall retain possession of the Premises or any part thereof without Landlord's written consent following the expiration or sooner termination of this lease for any reason, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord for each day of such retention during the first thirty (30) days of this holdover period one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the amount of the daily rental in effect during the last lease month prior to the date of such expiration or termination, and for each day of such retention after the first thirty (30) days of such holdover two hundred percent (200%) of the amount of the daily rental in effect during the last lease month prior to the date of such expiration or termination. The term "daily rental" as used in the preceding sentence shall mean the monthly rental divided by thirty. Acceptance of rent by Landlord following expiration or termination shall not constitute a renewal of this lease, and nothing contained in this paragraph shall waive Landlord's right of re-entry or any other right. Tenant shall be only a Tenant at sufferance, whether or not Landlord accepts any rent from tenant, while Tenant is holding over without Landlord's written consent. The provisions of this paragraph 24 are in addition to, and do not affect, Landlord's right of re-entry or other rights hereunder or provided by law. Nothing in this paragraph 24 shall be construed as implied consent by Landlord to any holding over by Tenant. Landlord expressly reserves the right to require Tenant to surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord as provided in this Lease on expiration or other termination of this Lease. The provisions of this paragraph 24 shall not be considered to limit or constitute a waiver of any other rights or remedies of Landlord provided in this Lease or at law. The provisions of this paragraph 25 shall survive the expiration or early termination of this lease. 25. SUBORDINATION In the event Landlord's title or leasehold interest is now or hereafter encumbered in order to secure a loan to Landlord, 28 <PAGE> 33 Tenant shall, at the request of Landlord or the lender, execute in writing an agreement subordinating its rights under this lease to the lien of such encumbrance, or, if so requested, agreeing that the lien of lender's encumbrance shall be or remain subject and subordinate to the rights of Tenant under this lease. Notwithstanding any such subordination, Tenant's possession under this lease shall not be disturbed if Tenant is not in default and so long as Tenant shall pay all amounts due hereunder and otherwise observe and perform all provisions of this lease. In addition, if in connection with any such loan the lender shall request reasonable modifications in this lease as a condition to such financing, Tenant will not unreasonably withhold, delay or defer its consent thereof, provided that such modifications do not increase the obligations of Tenant hereunder or materially adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created or Tenant's rights hereunder. 26. CERTIFICATE OF ESTOPPEL Each party shall, within ten (10) calendar days after request therefor, execute and deliver to the other party, in recordable form, a certificate stating that the lease is unmodified and in full force and effect, or in full force and effect as modified and stating the modifications. The certificate shall also state the amount of the monthly rent, the date to which monthly rent has been paid in advance, the amount of the security deposit and/or prepaid monthly rent, and, if the request is made by Landlord, shall include such other items as Landlord or Landlord's lender may reasonably request. Failure to deliver such certificate within such time shall constitute a conclusive acknowledgment by the party failing to deliver the certificate that the lease is in full force and effect and has not been modified except as may be represented by the party requesting the certificate. Any such certificate requested by Landlord may be conclusively relied upon by any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the Premises or Project. Further, within ten (10) calendar days following written request made from time to time by Landlord, Tenant shall furnish to Landlord current financial statements of Tenant. 27. SALE BY LANDLORD In the event the original Landlord hereunder, or any successor owner of the Project or Premises, shall sell or convey the Project or Premises, all liabilities and obligations on the part of the original Landlord, or such successor owner, under this lease accruing thereafter shall terminate, and thereupon all such liabilities and obligations shall be binding upon the new owner. Tenant agrees to attorn to such new owner and to look solely to such new owner for performance of any and all such liabilities and obligations. 29 <PAGE> 34 28. ATTORNMENT TO LENDER OR THIRD PARTY In the event the interest of Landlord in the land and buildings in which the Premises are located (whether such interest of Landlord is a fee title interest or a leasehold interest) is encumbered by deed of trust, and such interest is acquired by a lender or any other third party through judicial foreclosure or by exercise of a power of sale at private trustee's foreclosure sale, Tenant hereby agrees to release Landlord of any obligation arising on or after any such foreclosure sale and to attorn to the purchaser at any such foreclosure sale and to recognize such purchaser as the Landlord under this lease. 29. DEFAULT BY LANDLORD Landlord shall not be in default unless Landlord fails to perform obligations required of Landlord within a reasonable time, but in no event earlier than thirty (30) days after written notice by Tenant to Landlord and to the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises specifying wherein Landlord has failed to perform such obligations; provided, however, that if the nature of Landlord's obligations is such that more than thirty (30) days are required for performance, then Landlord shall not be in default if Landlord commences performance within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes the same to completion. If Landlord is in default of this lease, Tenant's sole remedy shall be to institute suit against Landlord in a court of competent jurisdiction, and Tenant shall have no right to offset any sums expended by Tenant as a result of Landlord's default against future rent and other sums due and payable pursuant to this lease. If Landlord is in default of this lease, and as a consequence Tenant recovers a money judgment against Landlord, the judgment shall be satisfied only out of the proceeds of sale received on execution of the judgment and levy against the right, title and interest of Landlord in the Project of which the Premises are a part, and out of insurance proceeds applicable to the Project or rent or other income from such real property receivable by Landlord or out of the consideration received by Landlord from the sale or other disposition of all or any part of Landlord's right, title and interest in the Project of which the Premises are a part. Neither Landlord nor any of the partners comprising the partnership designated as Landlord shall be personally liable for any deficiency. 30. CONSTRUCTION CHANGES It is understood that the description of the Premises and the location of ductwork, plumbing and other facilities therein are subject to such changes as Landlord or Landlord's architect determines to be desirable in the course of construction of the Premises and/or the improvements constructed or being constructed 30 <PAGE> 35 therein, and no such changes or any changes in plans for any other portions of the Project, shall affect this lease or entitle Tenant to any reduction of rent hereunder or result in any liability of Landlord to Tenant. 31. MEASUREMENT OF PREMISES Tenant understands and agrees that any reference to square footage of the Premises is approximate only and includes all interior partitions and columns, one-half of exterior walls, and one-half of the partitions separating the Premises from the rest of the Project. Tenant waives any claim against Landlord regarding the accuracy of any such measurement and agrees that there shall not be any adjustment in basic rent or direct expenses or other amounts payable hereunder by reason of inaccuracies in such measurement. 32. ATTORNEY FEES If either party commences an action against the other party arising out of or in connection with this lease, the prevailing party shall be entitled to have and recover from the losing party all expenses of litigation, including, without limitation, travel expenses, attorney fees, expert witness fees, trial and appellate court costs, and deposition and transcript expenses. If either party becomes a party to any litigation concerning this lease or concerning the Premises or the Project by reason of any act or omission of the other party or its authorized representatives, the party that causes the other party to become involved in the litigation shall be liable to the other party for all expenses of litigation, including, without limitation, travel expenses, attorney fees, expert witness fees, trail and appellate court costs, and deposition and transcript expenses. 33. SURRENDER The voluntary or other surrender of this lease or the Premises by Tenant, or a mutual cancellation of this lease, shall not work a merger, and at the option of Landlord shall either terminate all or any existing subleases or subtenancies or operate as an assignment to Landlord of all or any such subleases or subtenancies. 34. WAIVER No delay or omission in the exercise of any right or remedy of Landlord on any default by Tenant shall impair such right or remedy or be construed as a waiver. The receipt and acceptance by Landlord of delinquent rent or other payments shall not constitute a waiver of any other default and acceptance of partial 31 <PAGE> 36 payments shall not be construed as a waiver of the balance of such payment due. No act or conduct of Landlord, including, without limitation, the acceptance of keys to the Premises, shall constitute an acceptance of the surrender of the Premises by Tenant before the expiration of the term. Only a written notice from Landlord to Tenant shall constitute acceptance of the surrender of the Premises and accomplish a termination of this lease. Landlord's consent to or approval of any act by Tenant requiring Landlord's consent or approval shall not be deemed to waive or render unnecessary Landlord's consent to or approval of any subsequent act by Tenant. Any waiver by Landlord of any default must be in writing and shall not be a waiver of any other default concerning the same or any other provision of this lease. 35. EASEMENTS; AIRSPACE RIGHTS Landlord reserves the right to alter the boundaries of the Project and grant easements and dedicate for public use portions of the Project without Tenant's consent, provided that no such grant or dedication shall interfere with Tenant's use of the Premises or otherwise cause Tenant to incur cost or expense. From time to time, and upon Landlord's demand, Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord, in accordance with Landlord's instructions, any and all documents, instruments, maps or plats necessary to effectuate Tenant's covenants hereunder. This lease confers no rights either with regard to the subsurface of or airspace above the land on which the Project is located or with regard to airspace above the building of which the Premises are a part. Tenant agrees that no diminution or shutting of f of light or view by a structure which is or may be erected (whether or not by Landlord) on property adjacent to the building of which the Premises are a part or to property adjacent thereto, shall in any way affect this lease, or entitle Tenant to any reduction of rent, or result in any liability of Landlord to Tenant. 36. RULES AND REGULATIONS Landlord shall have the right from time to time to promulgate rules and regulations for the safety, care and cleanliness of the Premises, the Project and the Common Area, or for the preservation of good order. On delivery of a copy of such rules and regulations to Tenant ' Tenant shall comply with the rules and regulations, and a violation of any of them shall constitute a default by Tenant under this lease. If there is a conflict between the rules and regulations and any of the provisions of this lease, the provisions of this lease shall prevail. Such rules and regulations may be amended by Landlord from time to time with or without advance notice. 37. NOTICES 32 <PAGE> 37 Except for legal process which may also be served as provided by law or as provided herein, all notices, demands, requests, consents and other communications ("Notices") which may be given or are required to be given by either party to the other shall be in writing and shall be deemed given to and received by the party intended to receive such Notice (i) when hand delivered, (ii) three (3) days after such Notice shall have been deposited, postage prepaid, to the United States Mail, certified return receipt requested, properly addressed to the address specified herein, or (iii) date of delivery if sent to the address specified herein by reputable overnight courier (e.g. Federal Express or other comparable service), as evidenced by such courier's records. All such Notices from Landlord to Tenant shall be served or addressed to Tenant at 2770 San Tomas Expressway, Santa Clara, California 95051. All such Notices by Tenant to Landlord shall be sent to Landlord at its offices at 3945 Freedom Circle, Suite 640, Santa Clara, California 95054. Either party may change its address by notifying the other of such change. 38. NAME Tenant shall not use the name of the Project for any purpose other than as the address of the business conducted by Tenant in the Premises without the prior written consent of Landlord. 39. GOVERNING LAW; SEVERABILITY This lease shall in all respects be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California. If any provision of this lease shall be held or rendered invalid, unenforceable or ineffective for any reason whatsoever, all other provisions hereof shall be and remain in full force and effect. 40. DEFINITIONS As used in this lease, the following words and phrases shall have the following meanings: Authorized Representative: any officer, agent, employee or independent contractor retained or employed by either party, acting within authority given him by that party. Encumbrance: any deed of trust, mortgage or other written security device or agreement affecting the Premises or the Project that constitutes security for the payment of a debt or performance of an obligation, and the note or obligation secured by 33 <PAGE> 38 such deed of trust, mortgage or other written security device or agreement. Lease month: the period of time determined by reference to the day of the month in which the term commences and continuing to one day short of the same numbered day in the next succeeding month; e.g., the tenth day of one month to and including the ninth day in the next succeeding month. Leader: the beneficiary, mortgagee or other holder of an encumbrance, as defined above. Lien: a charge imposed on the Premises by someone other than Landlord, by which the Premises are made security f or the performance of an act. Most of the liens referred to in this lease are mechanic's liens. Maintenance: repairs, replacement, repainting and cleaning. Monthly Rent: the sum of the monthly payments of basic rent and direct expenses. Person: one or more human beings, or legal entities or other artificial persons, including, without limitation, partnerships, corporations, trusts, estates, associations and any combination of human being and legal entities. Provision: any term, agreement, covenant, condition, clause, qualification, restriction, reservation or other stipulation in the lease that defines or otherwise controls, establishes or limits the performance required or permitted by either party. Rent: basic rent, direct expenses, additional rent and all other amounts payable by Tenant to Landlord required by this lease or arising by subsequent actions of the parties made pursuant to this lease. Words used in any gender include other genders. If there be more than one Tenant, the obligations of Tenant hereunder are joint and several. All provisions whether covenants or conditions, on the part of Tenant shall be deemed to be both covenants and conditions. The paragraph headings are for convenience of reference only and shall have no effect upon the construction or interpretation of any provision hereof. 41. TIME Time is of the essence of this lease and of each and all of its provisions. 34 <PAGE> 39 42. INTEREST ON PAST DUE OBLIGATIONS; LATE CHARGE Any amount due from Tenant to Landlord hereunder which is not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum from when due until paid, unless otherwise specifically provided herein, but the payment of such interest shall not excuse or cure any default by Tenant under this lease. In addition, Tenant acknowledges that late payment by Tenant to Landlord of basic rent or direct expenses or of any other amount due Landlord from Tenant, will cause Landlord to incur costs not contemplated by this lease, the exact amount of such costs being extremely difficult and impractical to fix. Such costs include, without limitation, processing and accounting charges, and late charges that may be imposed on Landlord, e.g., by the terms of any encumbrance and note secured by any encumbrance covering the Premises. Therefore, if any such payment due from Tenant is not received by Landlord within three (3) business days of when due, Tenant shall pay to Landlord an additional sum of five percent (5%) of the overdue payment as a late charge. The parties agree that this late charge represents a fair and reasonably estimate of the costs that Landlord will incur by reason of late payment by Tenant. Acceptance of any late charge shall not constitute a waiver of Tenant's default with respect to the overdue amount, nor prevent Landlord from exercising any of the other rights and remedies available to Landlord. No notice to Tenant of failure to pay shall be required prior to the imposition of such interest and/or late charge, and any notice period provided for in paragraph 19 shall not affect the imposition of such interest and/or late charge. Any interest and late charge imposed pursuant to this paragraph shall be and constitute additional rent payable by Tenant to Landlord. 43. ENTIRE AGREEMENT This lease, including any exhibits and attachments, constitutes the entire agreement between Landlord and Tenant relative to the Premises and this lease and the exhibits and attachments may be altered, amended or revoked only by an instrument in writing signed by both Landlord and Tenant. Landlord and Tenant agree hereby that all prior or contemporaneous oral agreements between and among themselves or their agents or representatives relative to the leasing of the Premises are merged in or revoked by this lease. 44. CORPORATE AUTHORITY Each individual executing this lease on behalf of the corporation represents and warrants that he is duly authorized to execute and deliver this lease on behalf of the corporation and that this lease is binding upon said corporation in accordance with its terms. 35 <PAGE> 40 45. RECORDING Neither Landlord nor Tenant shall record this lease or a short form memorandum hereof without the consent of the other. 46. EXHIBITS AND ATTACHMENTS All exhibits and attachments to this lease are a part hereof. 47.

Except for the commissions and fees to be paid to McCandless Management Corporation and Cornish & Carey as provided in this paragraph, each party shall indemnify and hold harmless the other party from all damage, loss, liability and expense (including attorneys' fees and related costs) arising out of or resulting from any claims for commissions or fees that have been or may be asserted against the other party by any broker, finder or other person with whom Tenant or Landlord, respectively, has dealt, or purportedly has dealt, in connection with the Premises and the negotiation and execution of this lease; provided, however, Tenant shall have no obligation to indemnify Landlord for any claims made by McCandless Management Corporation. Landlord shall pay broker leasing commissions to McCandless Management Corporation and Cornish & Carey in connection with the Premises and the negotiation and execution of this lease, to the extent agreed to between Landlord and McCandless Management Corporation and Cornish & Carey. Landlord and Tenant agree that Landlord shall not be obligated to pay any broker leasing commissions, consulting fees, finder fees or any other fees or commissions arising out of or relating to any extended term of this lease or to any expansion or relocation of the Premises at any time. 48.

In addition to any other requirements of -this paragraph 49, the installation of any sign or other advertising material by or for Tenant must comply with all applicable laws, statutes, requirements, rules, ordinances and any C.C. & R.'s or other similar requirements.

Landlord may remove any unpermitted sign or advertising material without notice to Tenant and the cost of such removal shall be additional rent and shall be paid by Tenant within ten (10) days following notice from Landlord.

The provisions of this paragraph 49 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this lease. 50. SUBMISSION OF LEASE The submission of this lease to Tenant for examination or signature by Tenant is not an offer to lease the Premises to Tenant nor an agreement by Landlord to reserve the Premises for Tenant. Landlord will not be bound to Tenant until this lease has been duly executed and delivered by both Landlord and Tenant. 51. PREMISES TAKEN "AS IS" Except as otherwise provided in paragraph 9 hereof, Tenant is leasing the Premises from Landlord "as is" in their condition existing as of the date hereof.
