THIS SUBLEASE, dated as of April 25, 2000, is made between ConAgra, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("ConAgra, Inc.) and X.Com Corporation, a California corporation ("X.Com").
WHEREAS, by Lease dated January , 2000 (the "Master Lease") by and between Metro-Omaha Associates, L.L.C., as Landlord ("Landlord") and ConAgra, as Tenant, Landlord leased to ConAgra certain premises located on the third and fourth floors (the "Premises") of the building commonly known as 11128 John Galt Boulevard, Omaha, Nebraska (the "Building") (a copy of the Master Lease is attached hereto as Exhibit "A"); and
WHEREAS, X.Com desires to sublease from ConAgra a portion of the Premises.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1. Sublease. Subject to the consent of Landlord, ConAgra hereby subleases to X.Com and X.Com subleases from ConAgra that portion of the Premises consisting of approximately 23,117 rentable square feet of space composed of approximately 12,812 rentable square feet of space on the third floor and 10,305 rentable square feet of space on the fourth floor of the Building as shown on Exhibit "B" hereto (the "Subleased Premises"). Following completion of the Construction Plan as set forth in Exhibit "C", the actual rentable area of the Subleased Premises shall be determined in accordance with the Standard Method for Measuring Floor Area in Office Buildings, Approved June 7, 1996 ("BOMA Standards") by the American National Standards Institute, Inc. (ANSI/BOMA 265.1-1996). X.Com agrees to comply with all terms, covenants, conditions and obligations of the "Tenant" identified in the Master Lease as if X.Com were the "Tenant" under such Master Lease, including but not limited to all rules and regulations of the Building referred to in paragraph 14 of the Master Lease.
2. Term. The "Term" of this Sublease shall commence on April 17, 2000, ("Commencement Date") and, unless terminated earlier in accordance with the terms of this Sublease, shall end on May 31, 2003 ("Expiration Date"). X.Com may have access to that portion of the Subleased Premises on the fourth floor from and after April 1, 2000, and may have access to that portion of the Subleased Premises on the third floor from and after May 1, 2000. In the event X.Com accesses the Subleased Premises, or any part thereof, for purposes of constructing improvements prior to April 17, 2000, X.Com shall be subject to all terms, covenants and conditions of the Sublease and the Master Lease other than those relating to payment for Basic Rent or Additional Rent. In the event that ConAgra's right to possession shall be terminated for any reason, this Sublease shall terminate simultaneously with the termination of ConAgra's right to possession.
3. Use. X.Com shall occupy and use the Subleased Premises only for office use in the conduct of X.Com's business and not for any other purposes. No more than two hundred fifty (250) people shall be permitted to occupy the Subleased Premises at any one time without the prior written consent of ConAgra and Landlord.
4. Rent. X.Com shall pay, without deduction or setoff, as Basic Rent to ConAgra the total sum of the following:
4/17/2000 through 5/31/2002 - $26,006.63 per month
6/01/2002 through 5/31/2003 - $28,896.25 per month
The above rental is computed at the rate of $13.50 per rentable square foot per rentable square foot per year net of electrical charges for the period through May 31, 2002 and at the rate of $15.00 per rentable square foot per year net of electrical charges for the period June 1, 2002, through May 31, 2003. Rental due for any portion of a month shall be prorated.
The first such installment of Basic Rent shall be due and payable upon execution of this Sublease and, except as provided in paragraph 2, above, shall thereafter be due and payable in advance on the first day of each calendar month of the Term commencing with May, 2000. In addition to the foregoing, X.Com shall be responsible for and pay (i) to the utility providing such service all charges for electric service used in the Subleased Premises as and when such charges come due, and (ii) to ConAgra 63.8715 per cent of the "Additional Rent" due from ConAgra to Landlord pursuant to paragraph 3(c) of the Master Lease as and when such "Additional Rent" is due from ConAgra to Landlord. All sums required to be paid by X.Com hereunder to ConAgra are sometimes collectively referred to as, and shall constitute, "rent". All rent and other sums payable hereunder shall be payable at the office of The Mega Corporation, 14301 FNB Parkway, Suite 100, Omaha, Nebraska, 68154, or at such other location or to any agent designated in writing by ConAgra. X.Com shall, in addition to any other sums hereunder, pay a late charge ("Late Charge") equal to five percent (5%) of any amount due hereunder that has not been paid to ConAgra within five (5) days after written notice that such amount is due, provided, however, that to the extent that this provision for Late Charge duplicates any provision in the Master Lease, then X.Com shall be required only to pay the greater of (a) the Late Charge provided in the Master Lease, or (b) the Late Charge provided herein.
Basic Rent to be paid per month, as set forth above, and the percentage of the "Additional Rent" due from ConAgra to Landlord to be paid by X.Com shall be adjusted to reflect the actual rentable area of the Subleased Premises determined according to BOMA Standards in accordance with Paragraph 1, above.
5. Security Deposit. X.Com has, upon execution of this Sublease, deposited with ConAgra the sum of $54,000.00 to be held by ConAgra as security for the faithful performance by X.Com of all the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Sublease to be kept and performed by X.Com during the Term hereof. If X.Com fails to keep or perform any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Sublease, including but not limited to the provisions relating to the payment of Basic Rent and Additional Rent, ConAgra may (but shall not be required to) use, apply or retain all or any part of said security deposit to perform X.Com's obligations and if the security deposit is so used or applied, X.Com shall within five (5) days after written demand therefor, deposit cash with ConAgra in an amount sufficient to restore the security deposit to its original amount and ConAgra's failure to do so shall be material breach of this Sublease. ConAgra shall not be required to keep this security deposit separate from its general funds, and X.Com shall not be entitled to interest on such deposit. If X.Com shall fully and faithfully perform every provision of this Sublease to be performed by it, the security deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned to X.Com at the expiration of the Term. In the event ConAgra unconditionally assigns its rights under the Master Lease, said security deposit shall be transferred and paid to ConAgra's successor in interest and X.Com shall thereafter look solely to said successor for the return of and accounting for said security deposit and ConAgra shall have no further liability therefor.
6. Condition of Premises. The Subleased Premises shall be delivered to X.Com in its "AS IS" condition. X.Com agrees that ConAgra has no obligation to alter or repair the Subleased Premises or to prepare the same in any way for X.Com's occupancy or use. All improvements to the Subleased Premises shall be constructed at X.Com's sole cost and expense, except as set forth in paragraph 12. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ConAgra hereby grants to X.Com a finish allowance ("Finish Allowance") of up to $216,000.00 to be expended by X.Com on improvements to the Subleased Premises, including but not limited to architectural fees, cabling for computer and phone lines, legal fees, carpet and paint. The following provisions of this paragraph 6 shall govern the use and payment of such Finish Allowance:
(a) With the exception of those improvements in the preceding sentence, the Finish Allowance shall be used only for those additional items which are mutually agreed upon by the ConAgra and X.Com and designated as items for which the Finish Allowance shall be used.
(b) All provisions of paragraph 8 of the Master Lease shall apply to such Finish Allowance and the improvements for which it is used.
(c) Upon completion of the improvements for which the Finish is used, ConAgra shall pay to X.Com, in cash, upon presentation of lien waivers executed by the persons or entities constructing such improvements and receipts from such persons showing payment for the improvements for which reimbursement is sought, up to the amount of the Finish Allowance. X.Com shall be solely responsible for the payment of any labor, materials or other costs for improvements in excess of the amount of the Finish Allowance. In the event the cost of improvements for which the Finish Allowance is sought and is payable does not equal $216,000.00, ConAgra shall be entitled to retain the difference.
7. Care of Premises. X.Com shall not damage or deface the walls, floors, ceilings, nor make holes for the hanging of pictures (other than with standard picture hangers) or make or suffer to be made any waste, obstruction or unlawful, improper or offensive use of the Subleased Premises, or make any improvements, alterations, changes, additions, repairs or replacements in or to the Subleased Premises without ConAgra's and Landlord's prior written consent. X.Com shall not cause damage to any part of the Building or the property of Landlord or ConAgra nor disturb the quiet enjoyment of any other tenant in the Building.
8. Inspection. ConAgra and Landlord shall have the right at any time in case of emergency and at other reasonable times upon 24 hours prior written notice, to enter the Subleased Premises to inspect the same and to make such repairs and alterations as either ConAgra or Landlord shall see fit, provided ConAgra and Landlord shall use reasonable efforts not to disrupt X.Com's business.
9. Surrender of Subleased Offices. Upon the termination of this Sublease, X.Com shall immediately vacate and surrender the Subleased Premises. The Subleased Premises shall be surrendered in the same condition as they were at the Commencement Date (except X.Com shall have no obligation to remove any initial tenant improvements or other improvements consented to by ConAgra and Landlord), ordinary wear and tear and damage by fire or other casualty not caused by X.Com excepted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if X.Com has entered into a Lease Agreement with Landlord for a term that commences on the expiration of the Sublease, the terms of the Lease shall control and X.Com shall not be required to vacate and surrender the Subleased Premises.
10. Assignment and Subletting.
(a) Consent Required. X.Com shall not assign or sublet all or any part of X.Com's interest in this Sublease or in the Subleased Premises, without ConAgra's and Landlord's prior written consent, which consents shall not be withheld or delayed unreasonably.
(b) Release of X.Com. Should ConAgra and Landlord provide their consents pursuant to paragraph 10(a), or in the event of an assignment or subletting pursuant to paragraph 10(b), X.Com shall not be relieved of any obligations hereunder including the financial obligation.
(c) Profits of Sublease. Any profits received from the sublease shall be divided equally between ConAgra, Landlord and X.Com, after the amortization of subleasing costs.
11. ConAgra's Obligations. ConAgra shall have no obligation to provide X.Com with any services or to fulfill any of the other obligations which Landlord is required to provide or fulfill under the Master Lease, nor shall ConAgra have an obligation to repair, restore or rebuild any damaged or destroyed portion of the Building or improvements on the Subleased Premises or any fixtures or equipment therein. ConAgra does not warrant the Landlord will perform its obligations under the Master Lease and X.Com shall not be relieved of any of its obligations hereunder for any failure of the Landlord to perform any services except X.Com shall be relieved of its obligations only to the extent that ConAgra is relieved under the Master Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ConAgra shall use reasonable and diligent efforts to cause Landlord to perform its obligations under the Master Lease.
12. Utilities. Electrical service to the Subleased Premises shall be measured by a separate meter serving the Subleased Premises, which shall be installed at Landlord's expense, and X.Com shall pay, directly to the utility providing such service to X.Com, as and when it comes due, all charges for electric service used in the Subleased Premises.
13. Other Services. Landlord shall provide those services set forth, and in accordance with, paragraph 6 of the Master Lease.
14. Right of First Refusal. X.Com shall have a Right of First Refusal upon the following terms and conditions:
(a) Eligibility to Exercise Right of Refusal: Provided that (1) X.Com is not in default of any term or condition of this Sublease or of the Master Lease, and (b) this Sublease and the Master Lease are still in full force and effect and that neither one has been terminated, X.Com is given the Right of Refusal as hereinafter defined.
(b) Right of Refusal: During the term of the Sublease, X.Com shall have a Right of First Refusal to lease the remaining approximately 13,076 rentable square feet of the Premises as shown on Exhibit "B" hereto ("Expansion Space"). If ConAgra receives from a bona fide third party prospective subtenant a written offer to sublease said Expansion Space which ConAgra and Landlord are willing to accept, then ConAgra shall notify X.Com in writing of such offer. If X.Com does not give ConAgra written notice of its agreement to sublease the Expansion Space within ten (10) days of receiving such notice from ConAgra, and execute a sublease amendment for all of such Expansion Space within thirty (30) days after receiving such notification from ConAgra, X.Com shall have no further rights to such Expansion Space and ConAgra shall have no liability to X.Com with respect to such Expansion Space.
(c) Terms: If X.Com exercises its Right of First Refusal to sublease the Expansion Space in accordance with this paragraph 14, the following terms shall apply:

15. Waivers. All waivers must be in writing and signed by the waiving party. ConAgra's or X.Com's failure to enforce any provision of this Sublease or its payment or acceptance of rent shall not be a waiver and shall not prevent either party from enforcing any provision of this Sublease in the future. No waiver by ConAgra or X.Com of any provision or default hereunder, whether in a single instance or repeatedly, shall be deemed a future waiver of such provision or default or of any other provision or default.
16. Subordination. This Sublease and all rights of X.Com are and shall be subject and subordinate to the Master Lease and to all mortgages, ground leases, leasehold mortgages, encumbrances, covenant, restriction and other rights, if any, to which the Master Lease and ConAgra's interest herein are subject and subordinate.

It is agreed that the Landlord shall not liable for damages nor shall the rental hereinbefore stipulated be abated for failure to furnish any service above mentioned, or any part hereof as aforesaid, when such failure to furnish or delay in furnishing is occasioned by needful repairs, renewals or improvements, or in whole or in part by any strike or labor controversy or by any accident or casualty whatsoever, or by any act or default of the Tenant or other parties, or by any unauthorized act or default of the Tenant or other parties, or by any unauthorized act or default of any employee of the Landlord, nor for any other cause or causes beyond the control of the Landlord.
It is further understood and agreed that in the event that Tenant should decide to install high consumption electrical equipment, Tenant will first submit all plans and specifications of such installation to the Landlord for written approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. Any such installation is to be at Tenant's expense. The cost of electrical current to operate said equipment is to be determined before the time of installation and charged as additional rent. In case Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree upon said charge, Tenant, upon written notice from Landlord, will be required to install, at the Tenant's expense, metering devices and circuits of Omaha Public Power District, or successor, and pay all electrical charges directly to the electric company.
(b) Restoration of Services. Landlord shall use best reasonable efforts to restore any service required of it that becomes unavailable; however, such unavailability shall not render Landlord liable for any damages caused thereby, be a constructive eviction of Tenant, constitute a breach of any implied warranty, or entitle Tenant to any abatement of Tenant's obligations hereunder.

any common areas of the Building without the prior written consent of Landlord, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, or delayed.

If Tenant fails to make such repairs or replacements within thirty (30) days after the occurrence of such damage, then Landlord may make the same at Tenant's cost. If any such damage occurs outside of the Premises, then Landlord may elect to repair such damage at Tenant's expense, rather than having Tenant repair such damage but Landlord shall provide Tenant with five (5) days notice. The cost of all repair or placement work performed by Landlord under this Section 8 shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord within ten days after Landlord has invoiced Tenant therefor.
(c) Performance of Work. All work described in this Section 8 shall be performed only by contractors and subcontractors approved in writing by Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, or delayed.

Tenant shall conduct its business so as not to create any nuisance or unreasonably interfere with other tenants or Landlord in its management of the Building.

Tenant's insurance shall provide primary coverage to Landlord when any policy issued to Landlord provides duplicate or similar coverage, and in such circumstance Landlord's policy will be excess over Tenant's policy. Tenant shall furnish to Landlord certificates of such insurance and such other evidence satisfactory to Landlord of the maintenance of all insurance coverage required hereunder, and Tenant shall obtain a writhen obligation on the part of each insurance company to notify Landlord at least thirty (30) days before cancellation or a material change of any such insurance policies. All such insurance policies shall be in form, and issued by companies, reasonably satisfactory to Landlord.
Landlord shall maintain throughout the Term the following insurance policies: (1) commercial general liability insurance in the amounts of $ 1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 in the aggregate, insuring Landlord and Tenant and their respective affiliates against all liability for injury to, or death of, a person or persons or damage to property arising from the use and occupancy of the Building, only to the extent of Landlord's negligence, acts or omissions; (2) contractual liability insurance sufficient to cover Landlord's indemnity obligations hereunder; and (3) worker's compensation insurance, containing a waiver of subrogation endorsement reasonably acceptable to Tenant.

sustain. Each party shall cause its insurance carrier to endorse all applicable policies waiving the carrier's rights of recovery under subrogation or otherwise against the other party.
(c) Mutual Indemnity. Subject to Section 12(b), except for the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the indemnitee, Landlord and Tenant (individually, "Indemnitor") shall indemnify, defend and protect the other, its affiliates and their representatives and agents (collectively, "Indemnitee") from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, causes of action, suits, judgments, damages and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising from (A) where Landlord is the Indemnitee, (1) any occurrence on the Premises or (2) Tenant's failure to perform its obligations under this Lease; and (B) where Tenant is the Indemnitee, Landlord's operation and maintenance of the Building excluding the Premises.

This Lease shall be subordinate to any deed of trust, mortgage, or other security instrument, or any ground lease, or primary lease, that now or hereafter covers all or any part of the Premises (the mortgagee under any such mortgage or the lessor under any such lease if referred to herein as as "Landlord's Mortgagee"), provided Landlord's Mortgagee agrees in writing not to disturb Tenant's quiet enjoyment of the Premises so long as Tenant is not in default of this Lease beyond all applicable cure periods and Tenant attorns to Landlord's Mortgagee after the latter has succeeded to Landlord's interest in the Building. Any Landlord's Mortgagee may elect, at any time, unilaterally, to make this Lease superior to its mortgage, ground lease, or other interest in the Premises by so notifying Tenant in writing.
(b) Attornment. Tenant shall attorn to any party succeeding to Landlord's interest in the Premises, whether by purchase, foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, power of sale, termination of lease, or otherwise, upon such party's request, and shall execute such agreements confirming such attornment as such party may reasonably request.
(c) Notice to Landlord's Mortgagee. Tenant shall not seek to enforce any remedy it may have for any default on the part of Landlord without first giving written notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, specifying the default in reasonable detail, to any Landlord's Mortgagee whose address has been given to Tenant, and affording such Landlord's Mortgagee a reasonable opportunity to perform Landlord's obligations hereunder.

(b) Partial Taking - Tenant's Rights. If any part of the Building becomes subject to a Taking and such Taking will prevent Tenant from conducting its business in the Premises in a manner reasonably comparable to that conducted immediately before such Taking for a period of more than one hundred and fifty (150) days, then Tenant may terminate this Lease as of the date of such Taking by giving written notice to Landlord within thirty (30) days after the Taking, and Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such Taking. If Tenant does not terminate this Lease, then Rent shall be abated on a reasonable basis as to that portion of the Premises rendered untenantable by the Taking.

If any material portion, but less than all, of the Building becomes subject to a Taking, or if Landlord is required to pay any of the proceeds received for a Taking to a Landlord's Mortgagee, then Landlord may terminate this Lease by delivering written notice thereof to Tenant within thirty (30) days after such Taking, and Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such Taking. If Landlord does not so terminate this Lease, then this Lease will continue, but if any portion of the Premises has been taken, Rent shall abate as provided in the last sentence of Section 15(b).

(a) Repair Estimate. If the Premises or the Building are damaged by fire or other casualty (a "Casualty"), Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days after such Casualty, deliver to Tenant a good faith estimate (the "Damage Notice") of the time needed to repair the damage caused by such Casualty.
(b) Landlord's and Tenant's Rights. If a material portion of the Premises or the Building is damaged by Casualty such that Tenant is prevented from conducting its business in the Premises in a timely manner reasonably comparable to that conducted immediately before such Casualty and Landlord estimates that the damage caused thereby cannot be repaired within one hundred and fifty (150) days after the Casualty, then Tenant may terminate this Lease by delivering written notice to Landlord of its election to terminate within thirty (30) days after the Damage Notice has been delivered to Tenant if Tenant does not so timely terminate this Lease, then (subject to Section 16(c)) Landlord shall repair the Building or the Premises rendered untenantable by the damage shall be abated on a reasonable basis from the date of damage until the completion of the repair, unless a Tenant Party caused such damage, in which case, Tenant shall continue to pay Rent without abatement.

If any taxes for which Tenant is liable are levied or assessed against Landlord or Landlord's property and Landlord elects to pay the same, or if the assessed value of Landlord's property is increased by inclusion of such personal property, furniture or fixtures and Landlord elects to pay the taxes based on such increase, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within thirty (30) days after Landlord has invoiced Tenant therefor, the part of such taxes
for which Tenant is primarily liable hereunder; however, Landlord shall not pay such amount if Tenant notifies Landlord that it will contest the validity or amount of such taxes before Landlord makes such payment, and thereafter diligently proceeds with such contest in accordance with law and if the non-payment thereof does not pose a threat of loss or seizure of the Building or interest of Landlord therein or impose any fee or penalty against Landlord.
18. Events of Default. Each of the following occurrences shall be an "Events of Default":
(a) Tenant's failure to pay Rent with ten (10) days after Landlord has delivered notice to Tenant that the same is due;

(c) Tenant's failure to perform, comply with, or observe any other agreement or obligation of Tenant under this Lease and the continuance of such failure for a period of more than thirty (30) days after Landlord has delivered to Tenant written notice thereof provided, if the nature of Tenant's failure is such that more time is reasonably required in order to cure, there shall be no Event of Default if Tenant commences to cure within such period and thereafter reasonably seeks to cure such failure to completion); and
(d) The filing of a petition by or against Tenant (the term "Tenant" shall include, for the purpose of this Section 18(e), any guarantor of Tenant's obligations hereunder) (1) in any bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding; (2) seeking any relief under any state or federal debtor relief law; (3) for the appointment of a liquidator or receiver for all or substantially all of Tenant's property or for Tenant's interest in this Lease; or (4) for the reorganization or modification of Tenant's capital structure; however, if such a petition is filed against Tenant, then such filing shall not be an Event of Default unless Tenant fails to have the proceedings initiated by such petition dismissed within ninety (90) days after the filing thereof.
19. Remedies. Upon any Event of Default, Landlord may, in addition to all other rights and remedies afforded Landlord hereunder or by law or equity, take any of the following actions:
(a) Terminate this Lease by giving Tenant written notice thereof, in which event Tenant shall pay to Landlord the sum of (1) all Rent accrued hereunder through the date of termination, (2) all amounts due under Section 20(a), and (3) an amount equal to (A) the total Rent that Tenant would have been required to pay for the remainder of the Term discounted to present value at a per annum rate equal to the "Prime Rate" as published on the date this Lease is terminated by The Wall Street Journal, Central Edition, in its listing of "Money Rates" minus one percent, minus (B) the then present fair rental value of the Premises for such period, similarly discounted;
(b) Terminate Tenant's right to possess the Premises without terminating this Lease by giving written notice thereof to Tenant, in which event Tenant shall pay to Landlord (1) all Rent and other amounts accrued hereunder to the date of termination of possession, (2) all amounts due from time to time under Section 20(a), and (3) all Rent and other net sums required hereunder to be paid by Tenant during the remainder of the Term, diminished by any net sums thereafter received by Landlord through reletting the Premises during such period, after deducting all costs incurred by Landlord in reletting the Premises. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to relet the Premises on such terms as Landlord in its sole discretion may determine (including a term different from the Term, rental concessions, and alterations to, and improvement of, the Premises); however, Landlord shall not be obligated to relet the Premises before leasing other portions of the Building. Landlord shall not be liable for, nor shall Tenant's obligations hereunder be diminished because of, Landlord's failure to relet the Premises or to collect rent due for such reletting. Reentry by Landlord in the Premises shall not affect Tenant's obligations hereunder for the
unexpired Term; rather, Landlord may, from time to time, bring an action against Tenant to collect amounts due by Tenant, without the necessity of Landlord's waiting until the expiration of the Term. Unless Landlord delivers written notice to Tenant expressly stating that it has elected to terminate this Lease, all actions taken by Landlord to dispossess or exclude Tenant from the Premises shall be deemed to be taken under this Section 19(b). If Landlord elects to proceed under this Section 19(b), it may at any time elect to terminate this Lease under Section 19(a); or
(c) Additionally, without notice, Landlord may alter locks or other security devices at the Premises to deprive Tenant of access thereto, and Landlord shall not be required to provide a new key or right of access to Tenant.
20. Payment by Tenant; Non-Waiver.
(a) Payment by Tenant. Upon any Event of Default, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all costs incurred by Landlord (including court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) in (1) obtaining possession of the Premises, (2) removing and storing Tenant's or any other occupant's property, (3) repairing and restoring the Premises to the condition Section 21 requires, (4) if Tenant is dispossessed of the Premises and this Lease is not terminated, reletting all or any part of the Premises (including brokerage commissions, cost of tenant finish work, and other costs incidental to such reletting), (5) performing Tenant's obligations which Tenant failed to perform, and (6) enforcing, or advising Landlord of its rights, remedies, and recourses arising out of the Event of Default. To the full extent permitted by law, Landlord and Tenant agree the federal and state courts of Nebraska shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any matter relating to or arising from this Lease and the parties' rights and obligations under this Lease.
(b) No Waiver. Landlord's acceptance of Rent following an Event of Default shall not waive Landlord's rights regarding such Event of Default. No waiver by Landlord of any violation or breach of any of the terms contained herein shall waive Landlord's rights regarding any future violation of such term. Landlord's acceptance of any partial payment of Rent shall not waive Landlord's rights with regard to the remaining portion of the Rent that is due, regardless of any endorsement or other statement on any instrument delivered in payment of Rent or any writing delivered in connection therewith; accordingly, Landlord's acceptance of a partial payment of Rent shall not constitute an accord and satisfaction of the full amount of the Rent that is due.
21. Surrender of Premises. No act by Landlord shall be deemed an acceptance of a surrender of the Premises, and no agreement to accept a surrender of the Premises shall be valid unless it is in writing and signed by Landlord. At the expiration or termination of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord the Premises with all improvements located therein in good repair and condition, broom-clean, reasonable wear and tear (and condemnation and Casualty damage not caused by Tenant, as to which Sections 15 and 16 shall control) excepted, and shall deliver to Landlord all keys to the Premises. Provided that Tenant has performed all of its obligations hereunder, Tenant may remove all unattached trade fixtures, furniture, and personal property placed in the Premises by Tenant, and shall remove such alterations, additions, improvements, trade fixtures, personal property, equipment wiring, and furniture as Landlord may request. Tenant shall repair all damage caused by such removal. All items not so removed shall be deemed to have been abandoned by Tenant and may be appropriated, sold, stored, destroyed, or otherwise disposed of by Landlord without notice to Tenant and without any obligation to account for such items. The provisions of this Section 21 shall survive the end of the Term.
22. [Intentionally Left Blank]
23. Holding Over. If Tenant fails to vacate the Premises at the end of the Term, then Tenant shall be a tenant at will and, in addition to all other damages and remedies to which Landlord may be entitled for such holding over, Tenant shall pay, in addition to the other Rent, a daily Basic Rent equal to 125% for the first 90 days, 150% for the next 90 days of the daily Basic Rent payable during the last
month of the Term. The provisions of this Section 23 shall not be deemed to limit or constitute a waiver of any other rights or remedies of Landlord provided herein or at law. If Tenant fails to surrender the Premises upon the termination or expiration of this Lease, in addition to any other liabilities to Landlord accruing therefrom, Tenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from all loss, costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees) and liability resulting from such failure, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded upon such failure to surrender, and any lost profits to Landlord resulting therefrom.
24. Certain Rights Reserved by Landlord. Provided that the exercise of such rights does not unreasonably interfere with Tenant's access to or occupancy of the Premises (24 hours per day, 7 days per week), Landlord shall have the following rights:
(a) To decorate and to make inspections, repairs, alterations, additions, changes, or improvements, whether structural or otherwise, in and about the Building, or any part thereof, but not the Premises; to enter upon the Premises and, during the continuance of any such work, to temporarily close doors, entryways, public space, and corridors in the Building; to change the name of the Building; and to change the arrangement and location of entrances or passageways, doors, and doorways, corridors, elevators, stairs, restrooms, or other public parts of the Building;
(b) To take such reasonable measures as Landlord deems advisable for the security of the Building and its occupants; evacuating the Building for cause, suspected cause, or for drill purposes; temporarily denying access to the Building; and closing the Building after normal business hours and on Sundays and holidays, subject, however, to Tenant's right to enter when the Building is closed after normal business hours under such reasonable regulations as Landlord may prescribe from time to time; and
(c) To enter the Premises at reasonable hours to show the Premises to prospective purchasers, lenders, or, during the last 4 months of the Term, tenants.
25. Security Deposit. Tenant has deposited with Landlord the sum of Zero ($0.00) Dollars. Said sum shall be held by Landlord as security for the faithful performance by Tenant of all the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease to be kept and performed by Tenant during the term hereof. If Tenant defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, including, but not limited to the provisions relating to the payment of rent, the Landlord may (but shall not be required to) use, apply or retain all or any part of this security deposit for the payment of any rent or any other sum in default, or for the payment of any other amount which Landlord expend or become obligated to spend by reason of Tenant's default or to compensate the Landlord for any other loss or damage which Landlord may suffer by reason of Tenant's default. Landlord shall not be required to keep this security deposit separate from its general funds, and Tenant shall not be entitled to interest on such deposit. If Tenant shall fully and faithfully perform every provision of this lease to be performed by it, the security deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned to Tenant (or at Landlord's option, to the last assignee of Tenant's interest hereunder) at the expiration of the Lease term. In the event of termination of Landlord's interest in this Lease, Landlord shall transfer said deposit of Landlord's successor in interest.
26. Right to Renew. At the end of the initial Term of the Lease, provided Tenant is not in Default under the terms of this Lease, Tenant shall have the Option to Renew the term of this Lease for one (1) period of one (1) year hereinafter ("Renewal Term") provided that Tenant gives Landlord advance written notice of its intent to exercise this Option to Renew six (6) months prior to the end of the initial Term. The Renewal Term shall be governed by all the terms, covenants, and conditions of the Lease applicable to the initial term except that the rental rate for the Renewal Term shall be an amount equal to $49,765.38 per month for each month during the Renewal Term based on 36,193 rentable square feet.
27. Right to Terminate. Tenant shall have the one time right to terminate this Lease on the last day of thirtieth (30th) month by giving written notice of such interest not less than six (6) months prior to the last day of the thirtieth (30th) month and by tendering to Landlord a termination fee of $35,000 payable at the notice date.
(a) Landlord Transfer. Landlord may transfer any portion of the Building and any of its rights under this Lease. Landlord shall thereby be released from any further obligations hereunder, provided that the assignee assumes Landlord's obligations hereunder in writing.
(b) Landlord's Liability. The liability of Landlord to Tenant for any default by Landlord under the terms of this Lease shall be limited to Tenant's actual direct, but not consequential, damages therefor and shall be recoverable only from the interest of Landlord in the Building, and Landlord shall not be personally liable for any deficiency. This Section shall not limit any remedies which Tenant may have for Landlord's defaults which do not involve the personal liability of Landlord.
(c) Force Majeure. Excluding a party's obligations under this Lease that can be performed by the payment of money (e.g., payment of Rent and maintenance of insurance), whenever a period of time is herein prescribed for action to be taken by either party hereto, such party shall not be liable or responsible for, and there shall be excluded from the computation of any such period of time, any delays due to strikes, riots, acts of God, shortages of labor or materials, war, governmental laws, regulations, or restrictions, or any other causes of any kind whatsoever which are beyond the control of such party.

The undersigned, Metro-Omaha Associates, LLC ("Landlord"), as Landlord under the Master Lease, subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Consent, hereby consents to the attached SUBLEASE AMENDMENT AGREEMENT between ConAgra, Inc. and X.Com, but without thereby releasing ConAgra, Inc., as Tenant under the Master Lease from any liability or obligation to Landlord under the Master Lease. This consent is further based on the following:
1. Landlord represents that ConAgra is not in breach of the Master Lease.
2. In consenting to this SUBLEASE AMENDMENT AGREEMENT, Landlord acknowledges and agrees that X.Com is not responsible for any Hazardous or Toxic Materials, as such are defined in the Sublease, in, on or under the Subleased Premises prior to the Commencement Date or at any time if not caused by X.Com.
3. X.Com shall not be responsible for the exacerbation or release of any pre-existing Hazardous or Toxic Materials as a result of any alternations or improvements to the Subleased Premises.
Landlord shall indemnify and hold X.Com harmless of, from and against any and all claims, expenses, loss's or liability incurred or suffered by X.Com as a result of Hazardous or Toxic Materials in, under or on the Subleased Premises, that were not brought on the Subleased Premises by X.Com. The obligations of Landlord under this section shall survive the expiration of the Sublease.

7. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain for the benefit of X.Com commercially reasonable non-disturbance agreements from any and all current groundlessors and holders of deeds of trust or mortgages covering the Building or the Subleased Premises.
8. In the event the Master Lease expires or terminates for any reason during the term of the Sublease, or if ConAgra surrenders the Master Lease to Landlord during the term of the Sublease, and so long as X.Com is not in default under the Sublease beyond any applicable notice or cure period, Landlord shall continue the Sublease with the same effect as if Landlord and X.Com had entered into a lease for that date and for a term equal to the then unexpired term of the Sublease, and on the same terms and conditions in the Sublease. In that event, X.Com will attorn to Landlord, and Landlord and X.Com will have the same rights, obligations and remedies under the Sublease as were had by ConAgra and X.Com. However, in no event shall Landlord (a) be liable for any act or omission of ConAgra, (b) be subject to any offsets or defenses that X.Com had or might have against ConAgra, (c) be obligated to cure any default of ConAgra under the Sublease, (d) be bound by any payment of rent or other payment paid by X.Com to ConAgra in advance of any periods reserved for that in the Sublease, (e) be bound by any modification or amendment of the Sublease made without the written consent of Landlord, or (f) be liable for the return of any security deposit not actually received by Landlord.
