Sublessee shall within ten days after written demand therefore forward to
Sublessor an amount sufficient to restore said Deposit to the full amount
provided for herein and Sublessee's failure to do so shall be a material breach
of this Sublease. Sublessor shall not be required to keep said Deposit separate
from its general accounts. If Sublessee performs all of Sublessee's obligations
hereunder, said Deposit, or so much thereof as has not therefore been applied by
Sublessor, shall be returned, without payment of interest to Sublessee (or at
Sublessee's option, to the last assignee, if any, of Sublessee's interest
hereunder) at the expiration of the term hereof, and after Sublessee has vacated
the Premises. No trust relationship is created herein between Sublessor and
Sublessee with respect to said Security Deposit. See Section 5 Continued.

                  6. Use.

                  6.1 Agreed Use. The Premises shall be used and occupied only
for that use set forth in Section 5 of the Master Lease attached hereto as
Exhibit 1 and for no other purpose.

                  6.2 Compliance. Sublessor warrants that he improvements on the
Premises comply with all applicable covenants or restrictions of record and
applicable building codes, regulations and ordinances ("Applicable
Requirements") in effect on the commencement date. Said warranty does not apply
to any alterations or utility installations made by or to be made by Sublessee.
NOTE: Sublessee is responsible for determining whether or not the zoning is
appropriate for its intended use. If the Premises do not comply with said
warranty, Sublessor shall, except as otherwise provided, promptly after receipt
of written notice from Sublessee setting forth with specificity the nature and
extent of such non-compliance, rectify the same at Sublessor's expense. If the
Applicable Requirements are hereafter changed so as to require during the term
of this Sublease the construction of an addition to or an alteration of the
Building, the remediation of any Hazardous Substance, or the reinforcement or
other physical


modification of the Building ("Capital Expenditure"), Sublessor and Sublessee
shall allocate the cost of such work as follows:

                  (a) If such Capital Expenditures are required as a result of
the specific and unique use of the Premises by Sublessee as compared with uses
by tenants in general, Sublessee shall be fully responsible for the cost
thereof, provided, however, that if such Capital Expenditure is required during
the last two years of this Sublease and the cost thereof exceeds six months'
Base Rent, Sublessee may instead terminate this Sublease unless Sublessor
notifies Sublessee in writing, within ten days after receipt of Sublessee's
termination notice that Sublessor has elected to pay the difference between the
actual cost thereof and the amount equal to six months' Base Rent. If the
Parties elect termination, Sublessee shall immediately cease the sue of the
Premises which requires such Capital Expenditure and deliver to Sublessor
written notice specifying a termination date at least ninety days thereafter.
Such termination date shall, however, in no event be earlier than the last day
that Sublessee could legally utilize the Premises without commencing such
Capital Expenditure.

                  See Insert 1. Page 4 of 5.

                  (c) Notwithstanding the above, the provisions concerning
Capital Expenditures are intended to apply only to non-voluntary, unexpected,
and new Applicable Requirements. If the Capital Expenditures are instead
triggered by Sublessee as a result of an actual or proposed change in use,
change in intensity of use, or modification to the Premises then, and in that
event, Sublessee shall be fully responsible for the cost thereof, and Sublessee
shall not have any right to terminate this Sublease.

                  6.3 Acceptance of Premises and Lessee. Sublessee acknowledges

                  (a) it has been advised by Brokers to satisfy itself with
respect to the condition of the Premises (including but not limited to the
electrical, HVAC and fire sprinkler systems, security, environmental aspects,
and compliance with Applicable Requirements), and their suitability for
Sublessee's intended use,

                  (b) Sublessee has made such investigation as it seems
necessary with reference to such matters and assumes all responsibility therefor
as the same relate to its occupancy of the Premises, See 6.3(b) continued

                  (c) neither Sublessor, Sublessor's agents, nor any Broker has
made any oral or written representations or warranties with respect to said
matters other than as set forth in this Sublease.

                  In addition, Sublessor acknowledges that:

                  (a) Broker has made no representations, promises or warranties
concerning Sublessee's ability to honor the sublease or suitability to occupy
the Premises, and

                  (b) it is Sublessor's sole responsibility to investigate the
financial capability and/or suitability of all proposed tenants.

conditions of the Master Lease except for those provisions of the Master Lease
which are directly contradicted by this Sublease in which event the terms of
this Sublease document shall control over the Master Lease. Therefore, for the
purposes of this Sublease, wherever in the Master Lease the word "Lessor' is
used it shall be deemed to mean the Sublessor herein and wherever in the Master
Lease the word "Lessee" is used it shall be deemed to mean the Sublessee herein.

                  7.4 During the term of this Sublease and for all periods
subsequent for obligations which have arisen prior to the termination of this
Sublease, Sublessee does hereby expressly assume and agree to perform and comply

under the Master Lease.
