PREMISES, TERM, FAILURE TO GIVE POSSESSION, AND PARKING
LEASE OF PREMISES
(a) Landlord hereby leases to Tenant and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord the Premises for the Term and upon the terms, covenants and conditions provided in this Lease. The parties acknowledge and agree that the Rentable Area set forth in this Lease has been conclusively determined and is deemed final for the purposes of this Lease.
(b) Tenant shall have the non-exclusive right to use of the shared amenities for the EmeryStation Campus, as they may exist from time to time, such as the conference room and the employee exercise center, etc., in accordance with the standard Building policy regulating such usage.
(a) Initial Term. The Commencement Date shall be (i) the date on which Landlord has Substantially Completed the Base Shell and Core and tendered possession of the Premises to Tenant; or (ii) any earlier date upon which Tenant, with Landlords written permission, takes possession of any portion of the Premises to commence construction of the Tenant Work.
(b) Commencement Date Agreement. Within thirty (30) days following the occurrence of the Rent Commencement Date, Landlord and Tenant shall enter into an agreement (the form of which is attached hereto as Rider 1) confirming the Commencement Date, the Rent Commencement Date and the Expiration Date. If Tenant fails to timely enter into such agreement, then the Commencement Date, the Rent Commencement Date and the Expiration Date shall be the dates designated by Landlord in such agreement.
(c) Landlord Delay. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, the Rent Commencement Date shall be extended by any periods of Landlord Delay. The term Landlord Delay shall mean each day that the completion of the Tenant Work is delayed by any of the following:
(1) Special work, changes, alterations, additions, or any changes requested or made by Landlord in the design or finish in any part of the Premises after approval of the Working Drawings (as described in the Workletter Agreement); or
(2) The performance or completion by Landlord or any person engaged by Landlord of any work in or about the Premises that materially interferes with the construction of the Tenant Work; or
No Landlord Delay shall be deemed to occur unless and until Tenant provides written notice to Landlord, in compliance with the notice provisions of this Lease, claiming that such delay(s) occurred and specifying in detail the action or inaction on the part of Landlord which is the basis for such claim. If such action or inaction is not cured by Landlord by the date which is one (1) business day after Landlords receipt of such notice (the Cure Date), and Tenant proves that such action or inaction did actually cause a delay in completion of the Tenant
Work, the Landlord Delay as set forth in such notice shall be deemed to have occurred commencing as of the date after the Cure Date and continuing for the number of days the inaction or action claimed by Tenant in such notice remains uncured and actually and directly causes a delay in completion of the Tenant Work beyond such date. Furthermore, Tenant shall provide Landlord with written notice of any delay due to Force Majeure within three (3) days of the occurrence thereof, and Tenants failure to provide Landlord with such written notice shall constitute Tenants waiver of such Force Majeure delay.
FAILURE TO DELIVER POSSESSION
If the Premises is not delivered to Tenant with the Base Shell and Core Substantially Completed by the Projected Commencement Date for any reason, Landlord shall not be liable for any claims, damages or liabilities by reason thereof, nor affect the validity of this Lease or the obligations of Tenant hereunder; provided that if, for any reason, possession of the Premises with the Base Shell and Core Substantially Completed is not so delivered to Tenant by the date that is forty-five (45) days after the Projected Commencement Date (the Outside Delivery Date), then Tenant may, by written notice to Landlord given before possession of the Premises is so delivered to Tenant (but given not later than ten (10) business days after the Outside Delivery Date), terminate this Lease.
CONDITION OF PREMISES
Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing within one (1) year after the Commencement Date of any defects (including latent defects) in the Premises or the Building claimed by Tenant or in the materials or workmanship furnished by Landlord in completing the Base Shell and Core. A latent defect is a defect in the Base Shell and Core that would not ordinarily be observed during a walk-through inspection. Except for defects stated in such notice, Tenant shall be conclusively deemed to have accepted the Premises AS IS in the condition existing on the date Tenant first takes possession, and to have waived all claims relating to the condition of the Premises subject to Landlords ongoing maintenance, repair and replacement obligations. Landlord shall proceed diligently to correct the defects stated in such notice unless Landlord disputes the existence of any such defects. In the event of any dispute as to the existence of any such defects, the decision of the Architect shall be final and binding on the parties. No agreement of Landlord to alter, remodel, decorate, clean or improve the Premises or the Real Property and no representation regarding the condition of the Premises or the Real Property has been made by or on behalf of Landlord to Tenant, except as may be specifically stated in this Lease or in the Workletter.
During the Term, Tenant may use the number of spaces specified in Section 1.1(14) (Tenants Parking Rights) for parking at the standard prevailing monthly rates being charged from time to time by Landlord or its parking operator without regard to discounts provided to any other occupants of the Building. The current standard rate is $145.00 per space, per month. All such parking shall be located in the Garage and shall be leased by Tenant at then quoted rates for unreserved parking. Notwithstanding the prior sentence, the cost of Tenants parking during the first twelve (12) months of the Lease Term shall be billed at seventy-five percent (75%) of
such quoted rate. To the extent available, additional monthly parking may be provided by Landlord (or an Affiliate of Landlord) to Tenant, at Landlords or Landlords Affiliates reasonable discretion, to the extent stalls are available and not committed to other tenants or purposes on the EmeryStation Campus. In the event Tenant fails at any time to pay the full amount of such parking charges within ten (10) days after demand therefor, Tenants Parking Rights shall be reduced to the extent of Tenants failure to pay for any such parking. The locations and type of parking (including, without limitation, valet parking, if any) within the Garage shall be designated by Landlord or Landlords parking operator from time to time, so long as Tenant has use of the number of spaces specified in Section 1.1(14) on an unreserved basis at unreserved rates in the Garage. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that (a) the parking spaces serving the Project may include tandem or valet parking and a mixture of spaces for compact vehicles as well as full-size passenger automobiles, and (b) Tenant shall not use parking spaces for vehicles larger than the striped size of the parking spaces, nor shall Tenant park cars overnight (other than if an employee of Tenant is working overnight at the Premises or traveling). All vehicles utilizing Tenants Parking Rights shall prominently display identification stickers or other markers, and/or have passes or keycards for ingress and egress, as may be reasonably required and provided by Landlord or its parking operator from time to time at Landlords sole cost and expense. Tenant shall comply with any and all reasonable parking rules and regulations from time to time established by Landlord or Landlords parking operator, including a requirement that Tenant pay to Landlord or Landlords parking operator a charge for loss and replacement of passes, keycards, identification stickers or markers, and for any and all loss or other damage caused by persons or vehicles related to use of Tenants Parking Rights. Tenant shall not allow any vehicles using Tenants parking spaces to be parked, loaded or unloaded except in accordance with this Section, including in the areas and in the manner designated by Landlord or its parking operator for such activities. If any vehicle is using the parking or loading areas contrary to any provision of this Section, Landlord or its parking operator shall have the right, in addition to all other rights and remedies of Landlord under this Lease, to remove or tow away the vehicle without prior notice to Tenant, and the reasonable cost thereof shall be paid to Landlord within ten (10) days after notice from Landlord.
(a) Tenant shall have the option to renew this Lease (Renewal Option) with respect to the entirety of the Premises for two (2) consecutive additional terms of five (5) years each (each a Renewal Term), commencing upon expiration of the initial Term or the first Renewal Term, as applicable. Each Renewal Option must be exercised, if at all, by written notice given by Tenant to Landlord not earlier than fifteen (15) months and not later than nine (9) months prior to commencement of the Renewal Term. If Tenant properly exercises a Renewal Option, then references in this Lease to the Term shall be deemed to include the Renewal Term. Tenants rights under this Section 2.6 shall, at the option of Landlord, be null and void and Tenant shall have no right to renew this Lease if on the date Tenant exercises a Renewal Option or on the date immediately preceding the commencement date of a Renewal Term a Default beyond the applicable cure period shall have occurred and be continuing hereunder.
(b) If Tenant properly exercises a Renewal Option, then during such Renewal Term all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease as applicable to the Premises during the initial Term shall apply during the Renewal Term, including without limitation the obligation to pay Rent Adjustments, except that (i) Tenant shall accept the Premises in their then as-is state and condition and Landlord shall have no obligation to make or pay for any improvements to the Premises, and (ii) during the Renewal Term the Monthly Base Rent payable by Tenant shall be the Fair Market Value during the Renewal Term as hereinafter set forth.
(c) For purposes of this Section, the term Fair Market Value shall mean the rental rate, additional rent adjustment and other charges and increases, if any, for equivalent high-quality research laboratory and office space comparable in size, location and quality of the Premises under primary lease (and not sublease) to new or renewing tenants in Emeryville and Berkeley, California, for a comparable term with base rent adjusted for the relative tenant improvement allowance, if applicable, and other concessions, if applicable, and taking into consideration such amenities as existing improvements and non-removable fixtures in place at the time of such renewal (but not including the value of any Tenant Additions made to the Premises following the Commencement Date and the completion of Tenants initial build-out), view, floor on which the Premises are situated and the like, situated in comparable science/laboratory and office buildings in Emeryville or Berkeley.
(d) If Tenant properly exercises a Renewal Option, then Landlord, by notice to Tenant not later than six (6) months prior to commencement of the Renewal Term, shall indicate Landlords determination of the Fair Market Value. Tenant, within fifteen (15) days after the date on which Landlord provides such notice of the Fair Market Value shall either (i) give Landlord final binding written notice (Binding Notice) of Tenants acceptance of Landlords determination of the Fair Market Value, or (ii) if Tenant disagrees with Landlords determination, provide Landlord with written notice of Tenants election to submit the Fair Market Value to binding arbitration (the Arbitration Notice). If Tenant fails to provide Landlord with either a Binding Notice or Arbitration Notice within such fifteen (15) day period. Landlord shall send Tenant a second written notice specifying the Fair Market Rent (the Second FMV Notice) and such Second FMV Notice shall include the following: FAILURE TO ACCEPT SAID FAIR MARKET RENT AMOUNT IN WRITING OR DISPUTE SUCH AMOUNT BY SUBMITTING TO ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2.8(d) OF THE LEASE WITHIN TEN (10) DAYS SHALL BE DEEMED TENANTS AGREEMENT TO PAY SUCH AMOUNT DURING THE RENEWAL TERM. If Tenant fails to provide Landlord with either a Binding Notice or Arbitration Notice within ten (10) days after receiving the Second FMV Notice, Tenant shall have been deemed to have given the Binding Notice. If Tenant provides or is deemed to have provided Landlord with a Binding Notice, Landlord and Tenant shall enter into the Renewal Amendment (as defined below) upon the terms and conditions set forth herein.
(e) If the parties are unable to agree upon the Fair Market Value for the Premises within ten (10) days after Landlords receipt of the Arbitration Notice, Fair Market Value as of commencement of the Renewal Term shall be determined as follows:
(1) Within twenty (20) days after the date Tenant delivers the Arbitration Notice, Tenant, at its sole expense, shall obtain and deliver in writing to Landlord a determination of the Fair Market Value for the Premises for a term equal to the Renewal Term from a broker or appraiser (Tenants broker) licensed in the State of California and engaged in the science/laboratory and office leasing markets in Emeryville and Berkeley, California, for at
least the immediately preceding five (5) years. If Landlord accepts such determination, Landlord shall provide written notice thereof within ten (10) days after Landlords receipt of such determination and the Base Rent for the Renewal Term shall be adjusted to an amount equal to the Fair Market Value determined by Tenants broker. Landlord shall be deemed to have rejected Tenants determination if Landlord fails to respond within the ten (10) day period.
(2) If Landlord provides notice that it rejects, or is deemed to have rejected, such determination, within twenty (20) days after receipt of the determination of Tenants broker, Landlord shall designate a broker or appraiser (Landlords broker) licensed in the State of California and possessing the qualifications set forth in (1) above. Landlords broker and Tenants broker shall mutually agree upon a third broker, similarly qualified and who is not then or has not previously acted for either party, within five (5) days after the appointment of Landlords broker (Neutral Broker).
(3) The Neutral Broker shall determine the Fair Market Value for the Premises as of the commencement of the Renewal Term within fifteen (15) days after the appointment of such Neutral Broker by choosing the determination of the Landlords broker that was set forth in the initial notice delivered by Landlord pursuant to Section 2.6(d) or the Tenants broker that was delivered pursuant to Section 2.6(e)(1), whichever is closer to its own determination of Fair Market Value. The decision of the Neutral Broker shall be binding on Landlord and Tenant.
(f) Landlord shall pay the costs and fees of Landlords broker in connection with any determination hereunder, and Tenant shall pay the costs and fees of Tenants broker in connection with such determination as well as the costs and fees of any broker who assists Tenant in the renewal. The costs and fees of the Neutral Broker shall be paid one-half by Landlord and one-half by Tenant.
(g) If the amount of the Fair Market Value has not been determined pursuant to this Section 2.6 as of the commencement of the Renewal Term, then Tenant shall continue to pay the Base Rent in effect during the last month of the initial Term until the amount of the Fair Market Value is determined. When such determination is made, Tenant shall pay any deficiency to Landlord within ten (10) days following Landlords written demand or Landlord shall refund any overpayment to Tenant within ten (10) days following Tenants written demand.
(h) If Tenant is entitled to and properly exercises its Renewal Option, upon determination of Fair Market Value pursuant to this Section 2.6, Landlord shall prepare an amendment (the Renewal Amendment) to reflect changes in the Base Rent, Term, Expiration Date and other appropriate terms. The Renewal Amendment shall be sent to Tenant within a reasonable time after determination of Fair Market Value and, provided the same is accurate, Tenant shall execute and return the Renewal Amendment to Landlord within ten (10) days after Tenants receipt of same, but an otherwise valid exercise of the Renewal Option shall be fully effective whether or not the Renewal Amendment is executed.
From and after the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord at the address specified in Section 1.1(2), or to such other persons, or at such other places designated by Landlord, without any prior demand therefor in immediately available funds and without any deduction or offset whatsoever (except as otherwise provided herein), Rent, including Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments in accordance with Article 4, during the Term. Monthly Base Rent shall be paid monthly in advance on or prior to the tenth (10th) day of each month of the Term, except that the first installment of Monthly Base Rent shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord concurrently with Tenants execution of this Lease. Monthly Base Rent shall be prorated for partial months within the Term. Tenants covenant to pay Rent shall be independent of every other covenant in this Lease.
RENT ADJUSTMENTS AND PAYMENTS
(a) From and after the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord Rent Adjustments with respect to each calendar year (or partial calendar year in the case of the year in which the Rent Commencement Date and the Termination Date occur) as follows:
(1) The Rent Adjustment Deposit representing Tenants Share of Operating Expenses for the applicable calendar year (or partial calendar year), monthly during the Term with the payment of Monthly Base Rent;
(2) The Rent Adjustment Deposit representing Tenants Share of Taxes for the applicable calendar year (or partial calendar year), monthly during the Term with the payment of Monthly Base Rent; and
(3) Any Rent Adjustments due in excess of the Rent Adjustment Deposits in accordance with Section 4.2. Rent Adjustments due from Tenant to Landlord for any calendar year (or partial calendar year) shall be Tenants Share of Operating Expenses for such calendar year (or partial calendar year) and Tenants Share of Taxes for such calendar year (or partial calendar year).
(b) On or before the beginning of each calendar year or with Landlords Statement (as defined in Section 4.2 below), Landlord shall estimate and notify Tenant in writing of its estimate of the amount of Operating Expenses and Taxes payable by Tenant for such calendar year. Prior to the first determination by Landlord of the amount of Operating Expenses and Taxes for the first calendar year during the Term, Landlord may estimate such amounts in the foregoing calculation. Landlord shall have the right from time to time during any calendar year (but not more often than once in any calendar year) to provide a new or revised estimate of Operating Expenses and/or Taxes and to notify Tenant in writing thereof, of corresponding adjustments in Tenants Rent Adjustment Deposit payable over the remainder of such year, and of the amount or revised amount due allocable to months preceding such change. The last
estimate by Landlord shall remain in effect as the applicable Rent Adjustment Deposit unless and until Landlord notifies Tenant in writing of a change, which notice may be given by Landlord from time to time during any calendar year throughout the Term (but not more often than once in any calendar year).
(c) For purposes of determining Rent Adjustments, if the Building or Property is not fully occupied during all or a portion of any calendar year during the Term, Landlord shall make appropriate adjustments to the variable components of Operating Expenses for such calendar year (or partial calendar year), employing sound accounting and management principles consistently applied, to determine the amount of Operating Expenses that would have been paid or incurred by Landlord had the Building or Property been one hundred percent (100%) occupied, and the amount so determined shall be deemed to have been the amount of Operating Expenses for such calendar year (or partial calendar year). In the event that the Property is not fully assessed for all or a portion of any calendar year (or partial calendar year) during the Term, then Taxes shall be adjusted to an amount which would have been payable in such calendar year (or partial calendar year) if the Property had been fully assessed. In the event any other tenant in the Building provides itself with a service of a type which Landlord would supply under this Lease without an additional or separate charge to Tenant, then Operating Expenses shall be deemed to include the cost Landlord would have incurred had Landlord provided such service to such other tenant. To the extent that any items of Operating Expense of which Tenant pays Tenants Share relate to buildings which contain both office and retail space, then with respect to those Operating Expenses which relate to the office space (and not the retail space), Tenants Share may be adjusted to reflect that fraction of all office space (excluding the retail space) which is represented by the Premises. The benefit of any discount for any early payment or prepayment of Taxes shall accrue to the benefit of Tenant, and such discount shall be subtracted from Tenants Share of such Taxes.
STATEMENT OF LANDLORD
As soon as practical after the expiration of each calendar year (with Landlord making commercially reasonable efforts to do so no later than March 30 of the following calendar year), Landlord will furnish Tenant with a statement respecting the prior calendar year (Landlords Statement) showing the following:
(a) actual Operating Expenses and Taxes for such calendar year;
(b) The amount of Rent Adjustments due Landlord for the last calendar year, less credit for Rent Adjustment Deposits paid, if any; and
(c) Any change in the Rent Adjustment Deposit due monthly in the current calendar year, including the amount or revised amount due for months following any such change pursuant to Landlords Statement.
Tenant shall pay to Landlord within thirty (30) days after receipt of such statement any amounts for Rent Adjustments then due in accordance with Landlords Statement. Any amounts due from Landlord to Tenant pursuant to this Section shall be credited to the Rent Adjustment Deposit next coming due, or refunded to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlords receipt
of the bill from the applicable vendor or authority showing such actual amount if the Term has already expired, provided Tenant is not then in Default hereunder. No interest or penalties shall accrue on any amounts that Landlord is obligated to credit or refund to Tenant by reason of this Section 4.2. Landlords failure to deliver Landlords Statement or to compute the amount of the Rent Adjustments shall not constitute a waiver by Landlord of its right to deliver such items nor constitute a waiver or release of Tenants obligations to pay such amounts unless Landlord fails to deliver such Landlords Statement as to Operating Expenses or Taxes (unless such delivery delay as to Taxes is due to a delay in the taxing authority providing updated Tax information) within twenty-four (24) months following the conclusion of the applicable calendar year. The Rent Adjustment Deposit shall be credited against Rent Adjustments due for the applicable calendar year (or partial calendar year). During the last complete calendar year or during any partial calendar year in which this Lease terminates, Landlord may include in the Rent Adjustment Deposit its estimate of Rent Adjustments which might not be finally determined until after the termination of this Lease, provided that Tenant shall only be liable to Landlord for Rent Adjustments during the Term of the Lease, and not for the entirety of the last calendar year of the Lease. Tenants obligation to pay Rent Adjustments survives the expiration or termination of this Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the sum of Monthly Base Rent and the Rent Adjustments be less than the Monthly Base Rent payable.
BOOKS AND RECORDS
Landlord shall maintain books and records showing Operating Expenses and Taxes in accordance with sound accounting and management practices, consistently applied. Tenant or its representative (which representative shall be a certified public accountant licensed to do business in the state in which the Property is located and whose primary business is certified public accounting and who shall not be paid on a contingency basis) shall have the right, for a period of ninety (90) days following the date upon which Landlords Statement is delivered to Tenant, to examine Landlords books and records with respect to the items in the foregoing statement of Operating Expenses and Taxes during normal business hours, upon written notice, delivered at least five (5) business days in advance. Tenant shall pay for all of Tenants costs of such examination. If Tenant performs such examination, but does not object in writing to Landlords Statement within one hundred and twenty (120) days of Tenants receipt thereof, specifying the nature of the item in dispute and the reasons therefor, then Landlords Statement shall be considered final and accepted by Tenant [and Tenant shall be deemed to have waived its right to dispute Landlords Statement]. If Tenant does dispute any Landlords Statement, Tenant shall deliver a copy of any such audit to Landlord at the time of notification of the dispute. If Tenant does not provide such notice of dispute and a copy of such audit to Landlord within such one hundred and twenty day (120) day period, it shall be deemed to have waived such right to dispute Landlords Statement. Any amount due to Landlord as shown on Landlords Statement, whether or not disputed by Tenant as provided herein shall be paid by Tenant when due as provided above, without prejudice to any such written exception. In no event shall Tenant be permitted to examine Landlords records or to dispute any statement of Operating Expenses and Taxes unless Tenant has paid and continues to pay all Rent when due. Upon resolution of any dispute with respect to Operating Expenses and Taxes, Tenant shall either pay Landlord any shortfall or Landlord shall credit Tenant with respect to any overages paid by Tenant. The records obtained by Tenant shall be treated as confidential and neither Tenant nor any of its representatives or agents shall disclose or discuss the information set forth in the audit to or with any other person or entity (the Confidentiality Requirement). Tenant shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless for any losses or damages arising out of the breach of the Confidentiality Requirement.
TENANT OR LEASE SPECIFIC TAXES
In addition to Monthly Base Rent, Rent Adjustments, Rent Adjustment Deposits and other charges to be paid by Tenant, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within thirty (30) days after Landlords written demand, any and all taxes payable by Landlord (other than federal or state inheritance, general income, gift or estate taxes) whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties hereto: (a) upon, allocable to, or measured by the Rent payable hereunder, including any gross receipts tax or excise tax levied by any governmental or taxing body with respect to the receipt of such rent; or (b) upon or with respect to the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any portion thereof; or (c) upon the measured value of Tenants personal property located in the Premises or in any storeroom or any other place in the Premises or the Property, or the areas used in connection with the operation of the Property, it being the intention of Landlord and Tenant that, to the extent possible, such personal property taxes shall be billed to and paid directly by Tenant; or (d) upon this transaction; provided that Tenant shall not have any obligation to pay such taxes to the extent such taxes are already included in the calculation of Operating Expenses for the Project. Taxes and supplemental taxes paid by Tenant pursuant to this Section 4.4 shall not be included in any computation of Taxes payable pursuant to Sections 4.1 and 4.2.
(a) Simultaneously with Tenants execution and delivery of this Lease to Landlord, Tenant shall pay Landlord in immediately available funds the cash amount of the Security Deposit for the full and faithful performance by Tenant of each and every term, provision, covenant, and condition of this Lease. If Tenant fails timely to perform any of the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions of this Lease or any other document executed by Tenant in connection with this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period, then Landlord may use, apply, or retain the whole or any part of the Security Deposit for the payment of any Rent not paid when due, for the cost of repairing any damage, for the cost of cleaning the Premises, for the payment of any other sum which Landlord may expend or may be required to expend by reason of Tenants failure to perform, including, but not limited to, any loss of future Rent and any damage or deficiency in the reletting of the Premises (whether such loss, damages or deficiency accrue before or after summary proceedings or other reentry by Landlord) and the amount of the unpaid past Rent, future Rent loss, and all other losses, costs and damages, that Landlord would be entitled to recover if Landlord were to pursue recovery under Section 11.2(b) or (c) of this Lease or California Civil Code Section 1951.2 or 1951.4 (and any supplements, amendments, replacements and substitutions thereof and therefor from time to time). If Landlord so uses, applies or retains all or part of the Security Deposit, Tenant shall within five (5) business days after demand pay or deliver to Landlord in immediately available funds the sum necessary to replace the amount used, applied or retained. the Security Deposit (except any amount retained for application by Landlord as provided herein) shall be returned to Tenant with
thirty (30) days after the latest of: (i) the Expiration Date; (ii) the removal of Tenant from the Premises; or (iii) the surrender of the Premises by Tenant to Landlord in accordance with this Lease; provided, however, in no event shall any such return be construed as an admission by Landlord that Tenant has performed all of its obligations hereunder, and further provided that Landlord may retain any amounts necessary to cure uncured defaults so long as reasonable and sufficient documentation of such expenses are provided to Tenant.
(b) The Security Deposit shall not be deemed an advance rent deposit or an advance payment of any kind, or a measure of Landlords damages with respect to Tenants failure to perform, nor shall any action or inaction of Landlord with respect to it or its use or application be a waiver of, or bar or defense to, enforcement of any right or remedy of Landlord. Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from its general funds and shall not have any fiduciary duties or other duties (except as set forth in this Section) concerning the Security Deposit. Tenant shall not be entitled to any interest on the Security Deposit. In the event of any sale, lease or transfer of Landlords interest in the Building, Landlord shall have the right to transfer the Security Deposit, or balance thereof, to the transferee and any such transfer shall release Landlord from all liability for the return of the Security Deposit in the event that the Security Deposit is actually transferred to the purchaser of Landlords interest in the Building. Tenant thereafter shall look solely to such transferee for the return or payment of the Security Deposit. Tenant shall not assign or encumber or attempt to assign or encumber the Security Deposit or any interest in it and Landlord shall not be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance, and regardless of one or more assignments of this Lease, Landlord may return the Security Deposit to the original Tenant without liability to any assignee. Tenant hereby waives any and all rights of Tenant under the provisions of Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code, and any and all rights of Tenant under all provisions of Law, now or hereafter enacted, regarding security deposits.
(c) If, upon the expiration of the second (2nd) Lease Year, all of the following are true: (i) all Rent due has been paid, (ii) Tenant is not then in Default hereunder, and (iii) Tenant has held an initial public offering (an IPO), which IPO raised not less than $1 Billion in net capital for Tenant, Landlord agrees that the Security Deposit amount shall be reduced by one-third (1/3), to become a revised total of $383,294.02, and the difference of $191,647.01 shall be returned to Tenant within ten (10) days following the expiration of the second (2nd) Lease Year. Failure of any of the above to be true at the end of the second (2nd) Lease Year shall mean the Security Deposit shall remain unchanged in amount for the balance of the Lease Term.
LANDLORDS GENERAL SERVICES
(a) Landlord shall furnish the following services the cost of which services shall be included in Operating Expenses or paid directly by Tenant to Landlord or, if so designated by Landlord, directly to the utility or service provider:

(f) On and after the Rent Commencement Date, Landlord agrees that in the event of an interruption of power to the Building, Tenant may connect Tenant loads to the emergency generator serving the Building (the Emergency Generator) on the following conditions: (i) Tenant loads to the Emergency Generator shall in no event exceed Tenants Share of the kVA capacity of the Emergency Generator Landlord elects to make available for shared use by tenants of the Building; (ii) any use of the Emergency Generator, including the duration of use, shall be subject to the requirements and limitations (if any) imposed by applicable Law; and (iii) in the event of an emergency causing an interruption of power to any portion of the Building, Landlord may, in its reasonable discretion, immediately shed or shut down Tenant loads (an Emergency Shut Down) to the extent necessary to redirect the power from the Emergency Generator (Emergency Generator Power) to the Buildings emergency/life-safety systems (e.g., elevators, fire-life safety and emergency lighting). To the extent Landlords load shedding equipment accommodates shedding Tenant loads in stages, then Landlord shall use commercially reasonable good-faith efforts to shed Tenant loads in a priority which Tenant has delivered to Landlord in writing. As a condition to Tenants right to connect Tenant loads to the Emergency Generator:
(1) Tenant shall install and maintain, at Tenants sole cost and expense, a meter (the EG Meter), which shall be designed and configured to capture all Tenant loads connected to the Emergency Generator. Any and all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with the Emergency Generator, including, without limitation, provisions for loadshedding and shunt trips, fuel and maintenance/repair/replacement costs, shall be an Operating Expense. As a further condition to Tenants use of the Emergency Generator Power, Landlord shall have the right to install and maintain a shunt trip device (Shunt Trip Device) designed and configured to automatically shut down Tenants connection to the Emergency Generator and use of Emergency Generator Power in the event that the generator load for the Building exceeds eighty percent (80%) of the Emergency Generator rating, provided, however, that such Shunt-Trip Device cannot interfere with any vivariums being used by Tenant in the Premises.
(2) Tenant shall provide Landlord and Landlords building management staff (the Building Management Staff) with access to the EG Meter at all times for the purpose of inspection, and upon twenty-four (24) hours prior written notice if necessary (in the reasonable opinion of the Building Management Staff or Landlord), to perform maintenance or repairs thereto. In the event that Landlord incurs any cost or expense in connection with the inspection, repair or maintenance of the EG Meter, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for Landlords reasonable and customary actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses in connection therewith within thirty (30) days after Tenants receipt of Landlords written demand therefor (which demand shall be accompanied by documentation of the costs and expenses which are the subject of such demand). Landlord shall have the right at any time during the Term to install and maintain additional or separate transfer switches, meters, control devices and shunt trip devices in order to monitor and control Tenants connection to the Emergency Generator and use of the Emergency Generator Power.
(3) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Tenant acknowledges that the Emergency Generator and any transfer switch may be exercised on a periodic basis, such exercise to be conducted by Landlord or the Building Management Staff at Landlords reasonable discretion, and further provided that Landlord shall notify Tenant at least seventy-two (72) hours prior written notice for scheduled or planned uses. Tenant further acknowledges that annual maintenance procedures require that the Emergency Generator be taken off-line and that an annual full load test be performed on an annual basis, which test shall be conducted by Landlord or the Building Management Staff at Landlords reasonable discretion; provided, however, Landlord shall give Tenant not less than five (5) business days prior written notice thereof. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant, and Tenant shall not be entitled to any abatement of rent or other recourse in the event that Emergency Generator Power is not available for any reason. Landlords actual out-of-pocket cost of such exercise and testing shall be included in Operating Expenses.
(4) Upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Term, Tenant shall surrender and assign the EG Meter to Landlord. In no event shall Tenant be entitled to any reimbursement from Landlord for costs incurred by Tenant in connection with Tenants installation and maintenance of the EG Meter.
(5) Any attempt by Tenant or any of its subtenants or other transferees to make any additional connection from the Premises to the Emergency Generator without Landlords prior written consent shall constitute a material breach and default, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all reasonable and customary actual out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with curing any such default within ten (10) business days following Tenants receipt of Landlords demand therefor accompanied by documentation of such costs and expenses.
UTILITIES AND JANITORIAL SERVICES
All utility services used in the production of heating and cooling and air supply and exhaust from the central HVAC systems serving the Building and Premises, including, without limitation, electricity and gas, water and sewer services used in the operation of the central HVAC systems, shall constitute Operating Expenses. Electricity used in the Common Areas and emergency power, water and sewer services supplied to the Building and the Premises shall constitute Operating Expenses. Electricity usage within the Premises, other than overhead lighting and central HVAC systems, shall be measured by a separate meter or sub-meter to be installed as part of the Tenant Work, and paid by Tenant within 15 days after billing as additional Rent under this Lease. If Tenant desires to use gas in the Premises, a separate meter or sub-meter must be installed as part of the Tenant Work, and measured usage will be paid by Tenant within 15 days after billing as additional Rent under this Lease. In addition, Tenant shall provide its own janitorial services to the Premises, using a janitorial service reasonably acceptable to Landlord or shall make arrangements with Landlord for Landlord, through Landlords vendors, to perform such Premises cleaning services, and shall pay the costs thereof directly to Landlord. Notwithstanding any provision of this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall not make any alterations or additions to the electric equipment or systems, in each instance, without the prior written approval of Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed so long as such alterations or additions (i) do not exceed the capacity of the wiring, feeders and risers and (ii) are in compliance with the Citys building code. Tenants use of electric current shall at no time exceed the capacity of the wiring, feeders and risers providing electric current to the Premises or the Building. The consent of Landlord to the installation of electric equipment shall not relieve Tenant from the obligation to limit usage of electricity to no more than such capacity.
ADDITIONAL AND AFTER HOUR SERVICES
At Tenants written request and with Tenants prior reasonable approval of the cost therefor, Landlord shall furnish additional quantities of any of the services or utilities specified in Section 6.1, if Landlord can reasonably do so, on the terms set forth herein. For services or utilities requested by Tenant and furnished by Landlord, Tenant shall pay to Landlord as a charge therefor Landlords actual cost from time to time for such services and utilities, as additional Rent under this Lease (plus an administrative mark-up of not more than 15% on any such services, but not on any such utilities), provided, that Tenant shall not be charged for such services and utilities at a rate in excess of that charged to any tenant of the Building at the time the charge is imposed. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, for HVAC service outside of Standard Operating Hours and beyond After-Hours Setback levels, Landlords prevailing rate as of the date of this Lease includes a one (1) hour minimum per activation. If Tenant shall fail to make any such payment within ten (10) days after demand therefor, Landlord may, upon notice to Tenant and in addition to Landlords other remedies under this Lease, discontinue any or all of such additional services.
All telephone and communication connections which Tenant may desire shall be subject to Landlords prior written approval, in Landlords reasonable discretion, and the location of all Cables and the work in connection therewith shall be performed by contractors reasonably approved by Landlord and shall be subject to the direction of Landlord and in compliance with Landlords then current Building Standards for Cable installation, except that such approval is not required as to Tenants telephone equipment (including cabling) within the Premises and from the Premises in a route designated by Landlord to any telephone cabinet or panel provided (i.e., existing as part of the Base Shell and Core, if any) on Tenants floor for Tenants connection to the telephone cable serving the Building so long as Tenants equipment does not require connections different than or additional to those to the telephone cabinet or panel provided. Except to the extent of such cabling within the Premises or from the Premises to such telephone cabinet or panel, Landlord reserves the right to designate and reasonably control the entity or entities providing Cable installation, removal, repair and maintenance in the Building and to restrict and control access to telephone cabinets or panels, so long as such entity is competitively priced with other similar vendors. In the event Landlord designates a particular vendor or vendors to provide such Cable installation, removal, repair and maintenance for the Building, Tenant agrees to abide by and participate in such program, so long as such vendor or vendors is or are competitively priced with other similar vendors. Tenant shall be responsible for and shall pay, as additional Rent under this Lease, all costs incurred in connection with the installation of Cables in the Premises, including any hook-up, access and maintenance fees related to the installation of such Cables in the Premises and the commencement of service therein, and the maintenance thereafter of such Cables; and there shall be included in Operating Expenses for the Building all installation, removal, hook-up or maintenance costs incurred by Landlord in connection with Cables serving the Building which are not allocable to any
individual users of such service but are allocable to the Building generally. If Tenant fails to maintain all Cables in the Premises and such failure affects or interferes with the operation or maintenance of any other Cables serving the Building, upon at least twenty-four (24) hours prior written notice, Landlord or any vendor hired by Landlord may enter into and upon the Premises forthwith and perform such repairs, restorations or alterations as Landlord deems necessary in order to eliminate any such interference (and Landlord may recover from Tenant all of Landlords costs in connection therewith). Tenant shall not be obligated to remove any Cables or cabling installed by Tenant upon surrender of the Premises. Tenant agrees that neither Landlord nor any of its agents or employees shall be liable to Tenant, or any of Tenants employees, agents, customers or invitees or anyone claiming through, by or under Tenant, for any damages, injuries, losses, expenses, claims or causes of action because of any interruption, diminution, delay or discontinuance at any time for any reason in the furnishing of any telephone or other communication service to the Premises and the Building.
DELAYS IN FURNISHING SERVICES
Tenant agrees that Landlord shall not be in breach of this Lease nor be liable to Tenant for damages or otherwise, for any failure to furnish, or a delay in furnishing, or a change in the quantity or character of any service when such failure, delay or change is occasioned, in whole or in part, by repairs, improvements or mechanical breakdowns, by the act or default of Tenant or other parties or by an event of Force Majeure. No such failure, delay or change shall be deemed to be an eviction or disturbance of Tenants use and possession of the Premises, or relieve Tenant from paying Rent or from performing any other obligations of Tenant under this Lease, without any deduction or offset; provided, however, in the case of any such failure or delay is caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its contractors or agents or any of their respective employees, and the same materially interferes with Tenants ability to conduct business in the Premises, then Rent shall be abated commencing on the fifth (5th) consecutive business day following such failure or delay and shall continue until such time as the failure or delay that materially interferes with Tenants ability to conduct business in the Premises is cured. Failure to any extent to make available, or any slowdown, stoppage, or interruption of, the specified utility services resulting from any cause, including changes in service provider or Landlords compliance with any voluntary or similar governmental or business guidelines now or hereafter published or any requirements now or hereafter established by any governmental agency, board, or bureau having jurisdiction over the operation of the Property, shall not render Landlord liable in any respect for damages to either persons, property, or business, nor be construed as an eviction of Tenant or work an abatement of Rent, nor relieve Tenant of Tenants obligations for fulfillment of any covenant or agreement hereof. Should any equipment or machinery furnished by Landlord break down or for any cause cease to function properly, Landlord shall use reasonable diligence to repair same promptly, but Tenant shall have no claim for abatement of Rent or damages on account of any interruption of service occasioned thereby or resulting therefrom. Tenant hereby waives any benefits of any applicable existing or future Law, including the provisions of California Civil Code section 1932(1), permitting the termination of this Lease due to such interruption, failure or inability.
CHOICE OF SERVICE PROVIDER
Tenant acknowledges that Landlord may, at Landlords sole option, to the extent permitted by applicable law, elect to change, from time to time, the company or companies which provide services (including electrical service, gas service, water, telephone, internet and technical services) to the Building, the Premises and/or its occupants, provided that Landlord for each type of service, Landlord may not elect to change the service provider more than once per calendar year, and further provided that any change in service provider shall not result in any material reductions in the level and quality of service or availability of such service. Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for any costs associated with changing such service provider. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Lease, Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has not and does not make any representations or warranties concerning the identity or identities of the company or companies which provide services to the Building and the Premises or its occupants, and Tenant acknowledges that the choice of service providers and matters concerning the engagement and termination thereof shall be solely that of Landlord. The foregoing provision is not intended to modify, amend, change or otherwise derogate any provision of this Lease concerning the nature or type of service to be provided or any specific information concerning the amount thereof to be provided. Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord and each of its service providers in connection with any change in service or provider.

Initial Building standard signage for Tenant will be installed by Landlord in the directory in the main lobby of the Building and, in the case of any multi-tenant floor, in the listing of tenants in the elevator lobby for the floor on which the Premises is located and at Tenants main entry door to the Premises at Landlords sole cost and expense. Any change in such initial signage shall be only with Landlords prior written consent, shall conform to Building standard signage and shall be at Tenants sole cost and expense. In the event that Landlord permits another tenant of the Building the right to install addition or specialized signage in the main lobby of the Building, Landlord agrees to grant Tenant such rights on substantially the same terms and conditions.
(b) Exterior Sign. In addition to the signage identified in Section 6.7(a) above, Tenant shall be entitled to Tenants Share of the tenant listings (as applicable, Tenants Exterior Sign) on any available monument signage for the Building. Landlord shall have the right to reasonably approve the plans and specifications for the design and installation of Tenants Exterior Sign, the identity of any contractor or subcontractor to be employed on the work of installing Tenants Sign, and the time for performance of such work. Any and all maintenance and repair relating to Tenants Exterior Sign shall be the sole responsibility of Tenant. Tenant shall promptly perform such maintenance and repair obligations in a good and workmanlike manner, such that Tenants Exterior Sign appears and operates at all times in the manner intended at the time it was designed and installed. All costs pertaining to the design, installation, operation, maintenance, repair and removal of Tenants Exterior Sign or any part thereof shall be paid by Tenant when due. The provisions of this Lease pertaining to mechanics liens shall apply to Tenants Exterior Sign. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Tenants rights under this Section 6.7(b) are personal to the original Tenant executing this Lease (Named Tenant) and shall not be assigned or assignable, in whole or in part, to any third party. Any assignment or other transfer of such rights by Named Tenant shall be void and of no force or effect.

Tenant shall be responsible for and shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless from and against all Environmental Damages to the extent arising out of or otherwise relating to, (i) any Handling of Hazardous Materials by any Tenant Party in, on or about the Premises or the Project in violation of this Section, (ii) any breach of Tenants obligations under this Section or of any Hazardous Materials Laws by any Tenant Party, or (iii) the existence of any Tenants Contamination in, on or about the Premises or the Project to the extent caused by any Tenant Party, including without limitation any removal, cleanup or restoration work and materials necessary to return the Project or any improvements of whatever nature located on the Project to the condition existing prior to the Handling of Hazardous Materials in, on or about the Premises or the Project by any Tenant Party. In the event of any Tenants Contamination in, on or about the Premises or any other portion of the Project or any adjacent lands, Tenant shall promptly remedy the problem in accordance with all applicable Hazardous Materials Laws, shall give Landlord oral notice of any such non-standard or non-customary Release promptly after Tenant becomes aware of such Release, followed by written notice to Landlord within five (5) days after Tenant becomes aware of such Release, and shall furnish Landlord with concurrent copies of any and all notices, reports and other written materials filed by any Tenant Party with any governmental authority in connection with such Release. Landlord shall be responsible for and shall indemnify and hold Tenant harmless from and against all costs of any Environmental Damages which arise during or after the Term of this Lease, as a result of the presence of, any Release of or the Handling of any Hazardous Material in, on, about or under the Premises, Building or Property, to the extent such Release or Handling occurred prior to the Commencement Date (as evidenced by any environmental report or other data in existence as of the Commencement Date that documents such Release or Handling), or to the extent that such Environmental Damages occur or arise out of Landlords or Landlords agents or employees acts or omissions after the Commencement Date. Tenant shall have no obligation to remedy any Hazardous Materials contamination which was not caused or released by a Tenant Party.
(6) Governmental Notices. Tenant shall promptly provide Landlord with copies of all notices received by Tenant relating to any actual or alleged presence or Handling by any Tenant Party of Hazardous Materials in, on or about the Premises or any other portion of the Project, including, without limitation, any notice of violation, notice of responsibility or demand for action from any federal, state or local governmental authority or official in connection with any actual or alleged presence or Handling by any Tenant Party of Hazardous Materials in or about the Premises or any other portion of the Project.
(7) Inspection by Landlord. In addition to, and not in limitation of, Landlords rights under this Lease, upon reasonable prior request by Landlord, Tenant shall grant Landlord and its consultants, as well as any governmental authorities having jurisdiction over the Premises or over any aspect of Tenants use thereof, reasonable access to the Premises at reasonable times to inspect Tenants Handling of Hazardous Materials in, on and about the Premises, and Landlord shall not thereby incur any liability to Tenant or be deemed guilty of any disturbance of Tenants use or possession of the Premises by reason of such entry; provided, however, that Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenants use of the Premises caused by such entry. Landlord shall comply with any security precaution reasonably imposed by Tenant during any entry onto the Premises and shall minimize to the extent reasonably possible any interference with Tenants use of the Premises caused by such entry. Notwithstanding Landlords rights of inspection and review of documents, materials and physical conditions under this Section with respect to Tenants Handling of Hazardous Materials, Landlord shall have no duty or obligation to perform any such inspection or review or to monitor in any way any documents, materials, physical conditions or compliance with Laws in connection with Tenants Handling of Hazardous Materials, and no third Party shall be entitled to rely on Landlord to conduct any such inspection, review or monitoring by reason of the provisions of this Section.
(8) Monitoring by Landlord. Landlord reserves the right to monitor, in Landlords reasonable discretion and at Landlords cost, the reasonable cost of which shall be recoverable as an Operating Expense (except in the case of a breach of any of Tenants obligations under this Section, in which event such monitoring costs may be charged back entirely to Tenant and shall be reimbursed by Tenant to Landlord within ten (10) days after written demand by Landlord from time to time, accompanied by supporting documentation reasonably evidencing the costs for which such reimbursement is claimed), at such times and from time to time as Landlord in its reasonable discretion may determine, through consultants engaged by Landlord or otherwise as Landlord in its reasonable discretion may determine: (x) all aqueous and atmospheric discharges and emissions from the Premises during the Term by a Tenant Party, (y) Tenants compliance and the collective compliance of all tenants in the Building with requirements and restrictions relating to the occupancy classification of the Building (including, but not limited to, Hazardous Materials inventory levels of Tenant and all other tenants in the Building), and (z) Tenants compliance with all other requirements of this Section.
(9) Discovery of Discharge. If Landlord, Tenant or any governmental or quasi-governmental authority discovers any Release from the Premises during the Term by a Tenant Party in violation of this Section that, in Landlords reasonable determination, jeopardizes the ability of the Building or the Project to meet applicable Laws or otherwise adversely affects the Buildings or the Projects compliance with applicable discharge or emission standards, or if Landlord discovers any other breach of Tenants obligations under this Section, then upon receipt of written notice from Landlord or at such earlier time as Tenant obtains actual knowledge of the applicable discharge, emission or breach, Tenant at its sole expense shall within a reasonable time (x) in the case of a Release in violation of this Lease, cease the applicable discharge or emission and remediate any continuing effects of the discharge or emission until such time, if any, as Tenant demonstrates to Landlords reasonable satisfaction that the applicable discharge or emission is in compliance with all applicable Laws and any other applicable regulatory commitments and obligations to the satisfaction of the appropriate governmental agency with jurisdiction over the Release, and (y) in the case of any other breach of Tenants obligations under this Section, take such corrective measures as Landlord may reasonably request in writing in order to cure or eliminate the breach as promptly as practicable and to remediate any continuing effects of the breach.
(10) Post-Occupancy Study. If Tenant or any Tenant Party Handles any Hazardous Materials in, on or about the Premises or the Project during the Term of this Lease, then no later than thirty (30) days prior to the termination or expiration of this Lease, Tenant at its sole cost and expense, shall obtain and deliver to Landlord an environmental study, performed by an expert reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, evaluating, the presence or absence of any Tenants Contamination in, on and about the Premises and the Project. Such study shall be based on a reasonable and prudent level of tests and investigations of the Premises and surrounding portions of the Project (if appropriate) which tests shall be conducted no earlier than fifteen (15) days prior to the Termination Date. Liability for any remedial actions required or recommended on the basis of such study shall be allocated in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Lease. To the extent any such remedial actions are the responsibility of Tenant, Tenant at its sole expense shall promptly commence and diligently pursue to completion the required remedial actions.
(11) Emergency Response Plans. If Landlord in its reasonable discretion adopts any emergency response plan and/or any Contingency Plan and Emergency Procedures for the Building (or for multiple buildings on the Project if and to the extent applicable) as contemplated above, Landlord shall provide copies of any such plans and procedures to Tenant and, so long as such plans and procedures are reasonable and do not unreasonably interfere with Tenants Use of or access to the Premises or materially increase the cost incurred by Tenant with respect to the Premises. Tenant shall comply with all of the requirements of such plans and procedures to the extent applicable to Tenant and/or the Premises. If Landlord elects to adopt or materially modify any such plans or procedures that apply to the Building during the Term, Landlord shall consult with Tenant and Tenant shall cooperate, in the preparation of such plans, procedures or modifications in efforts to accurately reflect and maintain consistency with Tenants operations in the Premises, but Landlord alone shall determine, in its good faith reasonable discretion, the appropriate scope of such consultation and nothing in this Section shall be construed to give Tenant any right of approval or disapproval over Landlords adoption or modification of any such plans or procedures so long as such plans and procedures are reasonable and do not unreasonably interfere with Tenants Use of or access to the Premises or materially increase the cost incurred by Tenant with respect to the Premises.
(12) Radioactive Materials. Without limiting any other applicable provisions of this Section, if Tenant Handles or proposes to Handle any Radioactive Materials in or about the Premises, Tenant shall provide Landlord with copies of Tenants licenses or permits for such Radioactive Materials and with copies of all radiation protection programs and procedures required under applicable Laws or otherwise adopted by Tenant from time to time in connection with Tenants Handling of such Radioactive Materials. In addition, Tenant shall comply with any and all rules and procedures issued by Landlord in its good faith discretion from time to time with respect to the Handling of Radioactive Materials on the Project (such as, by way of example but not limitation, rules implementing a label defacement program for decayed waste destined for common trash and/or rules relating to transportation and storage of Radioactive Materials on the Project), provided that such rules and procedures shall be reasonable and not in conflict with any applicable Laws.
(13) Deemed Holdover Occupancy. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Lease, Tenant expressly agrees as follows:
(i) If Tenant Handles any Radioactive Materials in or about the Premises or the Project during the Term, then for so long as any license or permit relating to such Radioactive Materials remains open or valid following the Termination Date, and another entity handling Radioactive Materials which is a prospective tenant of Landlord is legally prohibited from occupying a portion of the Premises for a use similar to Tenants use, then Tenant shall be deemed to be occupying that portion of the Premises on a holdover basis without Landlords consent (notwithstanding such otherwise applicable termination or expiration of the Term) and shall be required to continue to pay Rent and other charges in accordance with Article 13 solely for that portion of the Premises effected by the radioactive materials license, until such time as all such Radioactive Materials licenses and permits have been fully closed out in accordance with the requirements of this Lease and with all applicable Hazardous Materials Laws and other Laws.
(ii) If Tenant Handles any Hazardous Materials in or about the Premises or the Project during the Term and, on or before the Termination Date, has failed to remove from the Premises or the Project all known Hazardous Materials Handled by a Tenant Party or has failed to complete any remediation or removal of Tenants Contamination and/or to have fully remediated in compliance with the requirements of this Lease and with all applicable Hazardous Materials Laws and any other applicable Laws, the Tenants Handling and/or Release (if applicable) of any such Hazardous Materials during the Term, then for so long as such circumstances continue to exist and Landlord is unable to lease the Premises to a new tenant and have such new tenant occupy and commence business in the Premises as a result of such circumstances, Tenant shall be deemed to be occupying the Premises on a holdover basis without Landlords consent (notwithstanding such otherwise applicable termination or expiration of the Term) and shall be required to continue to pay Rent and other charges in accordance with Article 13 until such time as all such circumstances have been fully resolved in accordance with the requirements of this Lease and with all applicable Hazardous Materials Laws and other Laws, provided that notwithstanding Article 13, in no event shall Tenant be liable for
consequential damages as a result of deemed holdover under this provision until after the forty-fifth (45th) day following the termination or expiration of this Lease, and further provided that Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate any consequential damages that arise as a result of Tenants deemed holdover.
(14) Survival of Obligations. Each partys obligations under this Section shall survive the Termination Date and shall survive any conveyance by Landlord of its interest in the Premises. The provisions of this Section and any exercise by either party of any of the rights and remedies contained herein shall be without prejudice to any other rights and remedies that such party may have under this Lease or under applicable Law with respect to any Environmental Conditions and/or any Hazardous Materials with respect to any breach of the other partys obligations under this Section. Either partys exercise or failure to exercise, at any time or from time to time, any or all of the rights granted in this Section shall not in any way impose any liability on such party or shift from the other party to such party any responsibility or obligation imposed upon the other party under this Lease or under Hazardous Materials Laws, Environmental Conditions and/or compliance with Laws.
(15) Laboratory Rules and Regulations. Tenant agrees for itself and for its subtenants, employees, agents, and invitees to comply with the laboratory rules and regulations (Laboratory Rules and Regulations) attached to this Lease as Exhibit C-1 and with all reasonable modifications and additions thereto which Landlord may make from time to time.
LANDLORD ACCESS TO PREMISES; APPROVALS
(a) Tenant shall permit Landlord to erect, use and maintain pipes, ducts, wiring and conduits in and through the Premises, so long as Tenants use, layout or design of the Premises is not materially affected or altered. Landlord or Landlords agents shall have the right to enter upon the Premises as set forth in Section 7.2(b) in the event of an emergency, or to inspect the Premises, or to (A) perform any services required under this Lease, (B) conduct safety and other testing in the Premises and (C) make such repairs, alterations, improvements or additions to the Premises or the Building or other parts of the Property as Landlord may deem necessary or desirable (including all alterations, improvements and additions in connection with a change in service provider or providers).

(b) Advance notice shall not be required for entry in the event of an emergency or urgent situation, as reasonably determined by Landlord, but any other entry or work by Landlord shall be upon at least one (1) business days prior notice to Tenant, which notice may be delivered orally or by e-mail to Tenants on-site manager at the Premises. If Tenant shall not be personally present to permit an entry into the Premises when for any reason an entry therein shall be necessary or permissible, Landlord (or Landlords agents), after attempting to notify Tenant (unless Landlord believes an emergency situation exists), may enter the Premises without rendering Landlord or its agents liable therefor, and without relieving Tenant of any obligations under this Lease.
(c) Landlord may enter the Premises for the purpose of conducting such inspections, tests and studies as Landlord may deem desirable or necessary to confirm Tenants compliance with all Laws and Hazardous Materials Laws or for other purposes necessary in Landlords reasonable judgment to ensure the sound condition of the Property and the systems serving the Property. Landlords rights under this Section 7.2(c) are for Landlords own protection only, and Landlord has not, and shall not be deemed to have assumed, any responsibility to Tenant or any other party as a result of the exercise or non-exercise of such rights, for compliance with Laws or Hazardous Materials Laws or for the accuracy or sufficiency of any item or the quality or suitability of any item for its intended use.
(d) Landlord may do any of the foregoing, or undertake any of the inspection or work described in the preceding paragraphs without such action constituting an actual or constructive eviction of Tenant, in whole or in part, or giving rise to an abatement of Rent by reason of loss or interruption of business of Tenant, or otherwise.
(e) The review, approval or consent of Landlord with respect to any item required or permitted under this Lease is for Landlords own protection only, and Landlord has not, and shall not be deemed to have assumed, any responsibility to Tenant or any other party, as a result of the exercise or non-exercise of such rights, for compliance with Laws or Hazardous Materials Laws or for the accuracy or sufficiency of any item or the quality or suitability of any item for its intended use.
Landlord covenants, in lieu of any implied covenant of quiet possession or quiet enjoyment, that so long as Tenant is in compliance with the covenants and conditions set forth in this Lease, Tenant shall have the right to quiet enjoyment of the Premises without hindrance or interference from Landlord or those claiming through Landlord, and subject to the covenants and conditions set forth in this Lease and to the rights of any Mortgagee or ground lessor.
TENANT ACKNOWLEDGMENTS REGARDING PROPERTY
(a) The Property is situated in a mixed-use area of the City that includes, among other possible uses permitted by the City, residential, commercial, manufacturing, industrial and laboratory/research uses. In recognition of such mixed-use character of area in which the Property is located, as a condition of the approval of the development of the Building on the Property, as set forth in Conditions of Approval: EmeryStation West and Heritage Square UP09-03/DRO9-18, Landlord is required to disclose to tenants of the Building that:
(1) industrial and laboratory/research uses located in nearby buildings have the potential to emit noise at levels and during hours of the day that persons may find disturbing;

Health and Safety Code Section 25359.7).
Tenant acknowledges the foregoing disclosures required to be made by Landlord regarding the mixed-use character of the area in which the Property is located.
(b) As required by the terms of that certain Covenant and Environmental Restriction on Property referenced hereinbelow, the following notice regarding the land upon which the Garage is situated is provided:

This statement is not a declaration that a hazard exists.
TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
(a) Landlord may elect or may be required to develop and implement a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program for the Building in order to reduce the traffic-related impacts resulting from development of the Property. The following are examples of such programs and incentives:
(1) Alternative commute subsidies and/or parking cash-out, where employees are provided with a subsidy if they use transit or commute by alternative modes; and
(2) Opportunities to purchase commuter checks which allow employees to purchase transit tickets at discounted rates from their before-tax income.
(b) In order to support any such TDM program for the Building, Tenant agrees that it shall use commercially reasonable efforts to adopt programs and offer incentives to its employees in order to reduce auto use and support the increase of alternative modes of transit. The specifics of Tenants programs and incentives shall be tailored to the needs of Tenants workforce and shall be determined by Tenant in its sole discretion, provided that Tenant shall
use good faith efforts to meet the goals of the TDM program. Upon request by Landlord from time to time, but not more often than once per calendar year, Tenant shall provide to Landlord a written report summarizing the programs and incentives being offered by Tenant to achieve the goals of the TDM program.
Subject to the provisions of Articles 4 and 14, Landlord shall at Landlords sole cost and expense (except to the extent permitted to be included in Operating Expenses) maintain and make necessary repairs and replacements to the foundations, roofs, exterior walls, and the structural elements of the Building, the electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, mechanical, communication, security and the fire and life safety systems of the Building and those corridors, washrooms and lobbies which are Common Areas of the Building, except that: (a) Landlord shall not be responsible for the maintenance or repair of any floor or wall coverings in the Premises or any of such systems which are located within the Premises and are supplemental or special to the Buildings standard systems; and (b) the cost of performing any of said maintenance or repairs whether to the Premises or to the Building caused by the negligence of Tenant, its employees, agents, servants, licensees, subtenants, contractors or invitees, shall be paid by Tenant, subject to the waivers set forth in Section 16.4. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any expense, injury, loss or damage resulting from work done in or upon, or in connection with the use of, any adjacent or nearby building, land, street or alley, unless caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its employees, agents or contractors.
Tenant shall periodically inspect the Premises to identify any conditions that are dangerous or in need of maintenance or repair. Tenant shall promptly provide Landlord with notice of any such conditions. Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, perform all maintenance and repairs to the Premises that are not Landlords express responsibility under this Lease, and keep the Premises in as good a condition and repair as the Premises were received at the Commencement Date, reasonable wear and tear and casualty and condemnation excepted. Tenants repair and maintenance obligations include, without limitation, repairs to: (a) floor covering; (b) interior partitions; (c) doors; (d) the interior side of demising walls; (e) electronic, phone and data cabling, wiring and related equipment that is installed by or for the exclusive benefit of Tenant (collectively, Cable); (f) supplemental air conditioning units, kitchens, including hot water heaters, plumbing, and similar facilities exclusively serving Tenant; and (g) Tenant Alterations. To the extent Landlord is not reimbursed by insurance proceeds, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of repairing damage to the Building caused by the acts of Tenant, Tenant Parties and their respective contractors and vendors. All maintenance and repairs, including, but not limited to, janitorial and cleaning services, pest control and waste management and recycling performed by or on behalf of Landlord or Tenant must comply with the Projects Sustainability Practices and Tenant is strongly encouraged to comply with the applicable Green Building Standards. If Tenant fails to make any repairs to the Premises for
more than thirty (30) days after notice from Landlord (although notice shall not be required in an emergency), Landlord may make the repairs, and Tenant shall pay, as additional Rent under this Lease, the reasonable cost of the repairs, together with an administrative charge in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the cost of the repairs. Tenant hereby waives all right to make repairs at the expense of Landlord or in lieu thereof to vacate the Premises and its other similar rights as provided in California Civil Code Sections 1932(1), 1941 and 1942 or any other Laws (whether now or hereafter in effect). In addition to the foregoing, Tenant shall be responsible for all costs in connection with maintaining and repairing all special tenant fixtures and improvements, including garbage disposals, showers, plumbing, water filtration systems and appliances. If Tenant requests that Landlord maintain and/or repair any such fixtures and improvements, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the reasonable and actual out-of-pocket cost of all such maintenance and repair work, as additional Rent under this Lease, and Landlords liability for such maintenance and repair work shall be subject to and limited by the provisions of Article 17 below, provided that if Landlord performs such maintenance or repairs, Tenant shall not be deemed to be in breach of the Lease under this Section 8.2 with respect to the maintenance or repairs performed by Landlord.
SUDDEN WATER INTRUSION
Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, in the event of sudden water intrusion into the Premises, due to a leaking or bursting pipe or other water source, Landlord will have the right, but not the obligation, to undertake immediate mitigation and repairs measures (the Water Damage Work) of such nature as would normally be Tenants responsibility under Section 8.2 above and to notify Tenant promptly after the repairs have been undertaken (including notice by telephone, to the extent reasonably practicable). Landlord shall determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, the contractors to be used for the Water Damage Work, and Tenant will reimburse Landlord for the reasonable cost of the Water Damage Work, as additional Rent under this Lease, within 30 days following Tenants receipt of written demand from Landlord therefor.
ALTERATIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS
(a) The following provisions shall apply to the completion of any Tenant Alterations:
(1) Tenant shall not, except as provided herein, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, make or cause to be made any Tenant Alterations in or to the Premises or any Property systems serving the Premises. Pursuant to Article 12, at the time of Landlords consent, Landlord shall indicate whether such Tenant Alteration must be removed from the Premises at the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. Prior to making any Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall give Landlord ten (10) days prior written notice (or such earlier notice as would be necessary pursuant to applicable Law) to permit Landlord sufficient time to post appropriate notices of non-responsibility. Tenant may undertake Decoration work without Landlords prior written consent. Tenant shall furnish Landlord with the names and addresses of all contractors and subcontractors and copies of all
contracts. All Tenant Alterations shall be completed by contractors or mechanics approved by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed; provided, however, that Landlord may, in its sole discretion, specify the engineers and contractors to perform all work relating to the Buildings systems (including the mechanical, heating, plumbing, security, ventilating, air-conditioning, electrical, communication and the fire and life safety systems in the Building) provided that such engineers and contractors are competitively priced with other similar vendors. The contractors, mechanics and engineers who may be used are further limited to those whose work will not cause or threaten to cause disharmony or interference with Landlord or other tenants in the Building and their respective agents and contractors performing work in or about the Building. Landlord may further condition its consent upon Tenant furnishing to Landlord and Landlord approving prior to the commencement of any work or delivery of materials to the Premises related to the Tenant Alterations such of the following as specified by Landlord: architectural plans and specifications, opinions from Landlords engineers stating that the Tenant Alterations will not in any way adversely affect the Buildings systems, necessary permits and licenses, certificates of insurance, and such other documents in such form reasonably requested by Landlord. Upon completion of the Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord an as-built mylar and digitized (if available) set of plans and specifications for the Tenant Alterations, as applicable.
(2) Tenant shall pay the cost of all Tenant Alterations and the cost of decorating the Premises and any work to the Property occasioned thereby. Upon completion of Tenant Alterations, Tenant shall furnish Landlord with contractors affidavits and full and final waivers of lien and receipted bills covering all labor and materials expended and used in connection therewith and such other documentation reasonably requested by Landlord or Mortgagee.
(3) Tenant agrees to complete all Tenant Alterations (i) in accordance with all Laws, Hazardous Materials Laws, all requirements of applicable insurance companies and in accordance with Landlords standard construction rules and regulations, (ii) in a good and workmanlike manner with the use of good grades of materials, and (iii) in accordance with the requirements of the Projects Sustainability Practices and Tenant is strongly encouraged to comply with the applicable Green Building Standards. Tenant shall notify Landlord immediately if Tenant receives any notice of violation of any Law in connection with completion of any Tenant Alterations and shall immediately take such steps as are necessary to remedy such violation. In no event shall any approvals given by Landlord under this Lease constitute any warranty by Landlord to Tenant of the adequacy of the design, workmanship or quality of such work or materials for Tenants intended use or of compliance with the requirements of Section 9.1(a)(3)(i) and (ii) above or impose any liability upon Landlord in connection with the performance of such work.
(b) All Tenant Additions shall without compensation or credit to Tenant, become part of the Premises and the property of Landlord at the time of their installation and shall remain in the Premises, unless pursuant to Article 12, Tenant may remove them or is required to remove them at Landlords request.
(c) Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Tenant, without Landlords consent, in its sole discretion and at its sole cost and expense, shall have the right to install drapes, curtains, blinds or other desirable window coverings on the windows of the Premises which may be viewed from the Common Terrace, subject to Landlords and Tenants mutual agreement regarding the type and exterior-facing color of such window coverings, and further subject to Tenants obligations under this Section 9.1 regarding Tenant Alterations. For clarity, Tenants right includes the right to completely cover such windows to protect Tenants confidentiality.
Tenant shall not permit any lien or claim for lien of any mechanic, laborer or supplier or any other lien to be filed against the Building, the Land, the Premises, or any other part of the Property arising out of work performed, or alleged to have been performed by, or at the direction of, or on behalf of Tenant provided that Tenant shall have no obligation for liens or encumbrances caused by Landlord even if such liens or encumbrances arise out of work done on behalf of or for the benefit of Tenant. If any such lien or claim for lien is filed, Tenant shall within fifteen (15) days of receiving notice of such lien or claim (a) have such lien or claim for lien released of record or (b) deliver to Landlord a bond in form, content, amount, and issued by surety, satisfactory to Landlord, indemnifying, protecting, defending and holding harmless the Landlord Indemnitees against all costs and liabilities resulting from such lien or claim for lien and the foreclosure or attempted foreclosure thereof. If Tenant fails to take any of the above actions, Landlord, in addition to its rights and remedies under Article 11, without investigating the validity of such lien or claim for lien, may pay or discharge the same and Tenant shall, as payment of additional Rent hereunder, reimburse Landlord upon demand for the amount so paid by Landlord, including Landlords expenses and attorneys fees.
ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
(a) Without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent of Landlord shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, Tenant may not sublease, assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise transfer or permit the transfer of this Lease or the encumbering of Tenants interest therein in whole or in part, by operation of Law or otherwise or permit the use or occupancy of the Premises, or any part thereof, by anyone other than Tenant. Tenant agrees that the provisions governing sublease and assignment set forth in this Article 10 shall be deemed to be reasonable. If Tenant desires to enter into any sublease of the Premises or assignment of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver written notice thereof to Landlord (Tenants Notice), together with the identity of the proposed subtenant or assignee and the proposed principal terms thereof and financial and other information sufficient for Landlord to make an informed judgment to determine if the proposed assignees or subtenants financial condition is adequate for the obligations such proposed assignee or subtenant is assuming in connection with the proposed assignment or sublease at least fifteen (15) days prior to the commencement date of the term of the proposed sublease or assignment. If Tenant proposes to sublease less than all of the Rentable Area of the Premises, the space proposed to be sublet and the space retained by Tenant must each be a marketable unit as reasonably determined by Landlord and otherwise in compliance with all Laws. Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing of its approval or disapproval
of the proposed sublease or assignment or its decision to exercise its rights under Section 10.2 within ten (10) days after receipt of Tenants Notice (and all required information). Tenant shall submit for Landlords approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) any advertising which Tenant or its agents intend to use with respect to the space proposed to be sublet.
(b) With respect to Landlords consent to an assignment or sublease, Landlord may take into consideration any factors that Landlord may deem relevant, and the reasons for which Landlords denial shall be deemed to be reasonable shall include, without limitation, the following:
(i) the business reputation or creditworthiness of any proposed subtenant or assignee is not acceptable to Landlord; or
(ii) in Landlords reasonable judgment the proposed assignee or sublessee would materially diminish the value or reputation of the Project or Landlord, or would materially increase the expenses associated with operating, maintaining and repairing the Project; or
(iii) any proposed assignees or sublessees use of the Premises would violate Section 7.1 of this Lease or would violate the provisions of any other leases of tenants in the Project;
(iv) the portion of the Premises retained by Tenant after a proposed sublease would not which constitute a marketable unit, meaning that such space would be: (A) deprived of ready access to the then-current corridor and elevator lobby without extension or reconfiguration of the corridor or creation of a connecting corridor; or (B) rendered in violation of any building code requirements; or (C) lacking exterior windows; or
(v) the proposed sublessee or assignee is a current occupant of the Project or a bona fide prospective tenant of Landlord in the Project as demonstrated by a written proposal dated within ninety (90) days prior to the date of Tenants request and Landlord has vacancy in the Project of a similar size and finish as the space subject to such proposed sublease or assignment; or
(vi) the proposed sublessee or assignee would materially increase the estimated pedestrian and vehicular traffic to and from the Premises and the Project above that deemed typical by Landlord for office/lab use in the Project; or
(vii) Tenant is then in Default under this Lease.
(c) Any sublease or assignment shall be expressly subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease. Any subtenant or assignee shall execute such documents as Landlord may reasonably require to evidence such subtenant or assignees assumption of the obligations and liabilities of Tenant under this Lease. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a copy of all agreements executed by Tenant and the proposed subtenant and assignee with respect to the Premises. Landlords approval of a sublease, assignment, hypothecation, transfer or third party use or occupancy shall not constitute a waiver of Tenants obligation to obtain Landlords consent to further assignments or subleases, hypothecations, transfers or third party use or occupancy.
(d) For purposes of this Article 10, an assignment shall be deemed to include a change in the majority control of Tenant, resulting from any transfer, sale or assignment of shares of stock of Tenant occurring by operation of Law or otherwise if Tenant is a corporation whose shares of stock are not traded publicly. If Tenant is a partnership, any change in the partners of Tenant shall be deemed to be an assignment. For clarity, Tenants stock is publicly traded as of the date hereof, and sales and transfers of stock of Tenant traded through an exchange or over the counter shall not be deemed to be an assignment or change of control under this Lease.
(e) For purposes of this Lease, a Permitted Transferee shall mean any Person which: (i) is an Affiliate; or (ii) is the corporation or other entity (the Successor) resulting from a merger, consolidation or non-bankruptcy reorganization with Tenant; or (iii) is otherwise a deemed assignee due to a change of control under Section 10.1(d) above; or (iv) purchases substantially all the assets of Tenant as a going concern (the Purchaser). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Sections 10.1(a) and (b), 10.2 and 10.3, provided there is then no uncured Default under this Lease, Tenant shall have the right, without the prior written consent of Landlord, to assign this Lease to a Permitted Transferee, effect a change of control as described in Section 10.1(d) above, or to sublease the Premises or any part thereof to a Permitted Transferee provided that: (1) Landlord receives fifteen (15) days prior written notice of an assignment or sublease (including a proposed transaction described in subparts (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) of this Section 10.1(e)); (2) with respect to an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of more than half the Premises to an entity described in subparts (ii) or (iv) of this Section 10.1(e), the Permitted Transferees net worth is not less than Tenants net worth immediately prior to such assignment or subletting; (3) with respect to an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of more than half the Premises to an entity described in subparts (i) or (iii) of this Section 10.1(e), Tenant (as the assignor or sublandlord) continues in existence with a net worth not less than Tenants net worth immediately prior to such assignment or subletting; (4) the Permitted Transferee expressly assumes (except a Permitted Transferee which is a deemed assignee under subpart (iii) of this Section 10.1(e) or which is a sublessee in the event of a sublease under this Section 10.1(e)) in writing reasonably satisfactory to Landlord all of the obligations of Tenant under this Lease and delivers such assumption to Landlord no later than five (5) days prior to the effective date of the assignment; (5) Landlord receives no later than five (5) days before the effective date a fully executed copy of the applicable assignment or sublease agreement between Tenant and the Permitted Transferee; (6) promptly after Landlords written request, Tenant and the Permitted Transferee provide such reasonable documents and information which Landlord reasonably requests for the purpose of substantiating whether or not the assignment or sublease is to a Permitted Transferee; and (7) such transfer is not being entered into for the purpose of avoiding the requirement for Landlords prior consent or the provisions of Sections 10.2 or 10.3. All determinations of net worth for purposes of this Subsection shall exclude any value attributable to goodwill or going concern value. Landlord acknowledges and agrees that Tenant shall not be in breach of this Lease in the event that Tenant is unable to comply with conditions set forth above due to confidentiality restrictions preventing Tenant from disclosing the existence of a proposed transaction, and in such event, Tenant shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prepare a commercially reasonable and industry-standard non-disclosure agreement in a form reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, Tenant and other transaction parties for execution by such parties such that Tenant may comply with the provisions set forth in this Section 10.1(e), and Tenant shall not be required to comply with the provisions of this Section 10.1(e) unless and until Landlord has executed such non-disclosure agreement.
(f) With respect to any sublease hereunder, Tenant hereby irrevocably assigns to Landlord, effective upon any such sublease, all rent and other payments due from subtenant under the sublease, provided however, that Tenant shall have a license to collect such rent and other payments until the occurrence of a Default by Tenant under any of the provisions of this Lease. At any time after such Default, at Landlords option, Landlord shall have the right to give notice to the subtenant of such assignment. Landlord shall credit Tenant with any rent received by Landlord under such assignment but the acceptance of any payment on account of rent from the subtenant as the result of any such default shall in no manner whatsoever serve to release Tenant from any liability under the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions or agreement under this Lease. No such payment of rent or any other payment by the subtenant directly to Landlord and/or acceptance of such payment(s) by Landlord, regardless of the circumstances or reasons therefor, shall in any manner whatsoever be deemed an attornment by the subtenant to Landlord in the absence of a specific written agreement signed by Landlord to such an effect.
Excluding any assignment or sublease contemplated in Section 10.1(e) (i.e., to Permitted Transferee), for any assignment of this Lease or proposed sublease of more than seventy-five percent (75%) of the Rentable Area of the Premises for materially all of the remaining Lease Term, Landlord shall have the option to exclude from the Premises covered by this Lease (recapture) the space proposed to be sublet or subject to assignment, effective as of the proposed commencement date of such sublease or proposed effective date of such assignment. If Landlord elects to recapture, Tenant shall surrender possession of the space proposed to be subleased or subject to the assignment to Landlord on the effective date of recapture of such space from the Premises, such date being the Termination Date for such space. Effective as of the date of recapture of any portion of the Premises pursuant to this section, the Monthly Base Rent, Rentable Area of the Premises and Tenants Share shall be adjusted accordingly.
Tenant shall pay Landlord on the first day of each month during the term of the sublease or assignment, as additional Rent under this Lease, fifty percent (50%) of the amount by which the sum of all rent actually received from the subtenant or assignee for such month exceeds: (i) that portion of the Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments due under this Lease for said month which is allocable to the space sublet or assigned; and (ii) the following costs and expenses for the subletting or assignment of such space: (1) brokerage commissions and attorneys fees and expenses, (2) the actual costs paid in making any improvements or substitutions in the Premises required by any sublease or assignment; and (3) free rent periods, costs of any inducements or concessions given to subtenant or assignee, moving costs and other amounts actually paid with respect of such subtenants or assignees other leases or occupancy arrangements, but only to the extent same are typical, reasonable and appropriate under the prevailing market conditions. All such costs and expenses shall be amortized over the term of the sublease or assignment pursuant to sound accounting principles.
In the event of any sublease or assignment, whether or not with Landlords consent, Tenant shall not be released or discharged from any liability, whether past, present or future, under this Lease, including any liability arising from the exercise of any renewal or expansion option, to the extent such exercise is expressly permitted by Landlord. Tenants liability shall remain primary, and in the event of default by any subtenant, assignee or successor of Tenant in performance or observance of any of the covenants or conditions of this Lease, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant without the necessity of exhausting remedies against said subtenant, assignee or successor. After any assignment, Landlord may consent to subsequent assignments or subletting of this Lease, or amendments or modifications of 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 or any successor of Tenant of liability under this Lease. If Landlord grants consent to such sublease or assignment, Tenant shall pay all reasonable attorneys fees and expenses incurred by Landlord with respect to such assignment or sublease. In addition, if Tenant has any options to extend the Term or to add other space to the Premises, such options shall not be available to any subtenant or assignee (except for Permitted Transferees), directly or indirectly without Landlords express written consent, which may be withheld in Landlords sole discretion.
ASSUMPTION AND ATTORNMENT
If Tenant shall assign this Lease as permitted herein, the assignee shall expressly assume all of the obligations of Tenant hereunder in a written instrument satisfactory to Landlord and furnished to Landlord not later than five (5) days prior to the effective date of the assignment. Each sublease by Tenant hereunder shall be subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease is or shall be subordinate, and each subtenant by entering into a sublease is deemed to have agreed that in the event of termination, re-entry or dispossession by Landlord under this Lease, Landlord may, at its option, either terminate the sublease or take over all of the right, title and interest of Tenant, as sublandlord, under such sublease, and such subtenant shall, at Landlords option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to the then executory provisions of such sublease, except that Landlord shall not be: (1) liable for any previous act or omission of Tenant under such sublease; (2) subject to any counterclaim, offset or defense that such subtenant might have against Tenant; (3) bound by any previous modification of such sublease or by any rent or additional rent or advance rent which such subtenant might have paid for more than the current month to Tenant, and all such rent shall remain due and owing, notwithstanding such advance payment; (4) bound by any security or advance rental deposit made by such subtenant which is not delivered or paid over to Landlord and with respect to which such subtenant shall look solely to Tenant for refund or reimbursement; or (5) obligated to perform any work in the subleased space or to prepare it for occupancy, and in connection with such attornment, the subtenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord any instruments Landlord may reasonably request to evidence and confirm such attornment. Each subtenant or licensee of Tenant shall be deemed, automatically upon and as a condition of its occupying or using the Premises or any part thereof, to have agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 10.5. The provisions of this Section 10.5 shall be self-operative, and no further instrument shall be required to give effect to this provision.
Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Landlords cost of processing each proposed assignment or subletting (whether or not the same is ultimately approved by Landlord or consummated by Tenant), an amount equal to the greater of (i) Landlords reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys and other professional fees, or (ii) the sum of $1,500.00 for the cost of Landlords administrative, accounting and clerical time (collectively, Processing Costs). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Landlord shall not be required to process any request for Landlords consent to an assignment or subletting until Tenant has paid to Landlord the amount of Landlords estimate of the Processing Costs. When the actual amount of the Processing Costs is determined, it shall be reconciled with Landlords estimate, and any payments or refunds required as a result thereof shall promptly thereafter be made by the parties.
EFFECT OF IMPERMISSIBLE TRANSFER
Any assignment or sublease effected without Landlords consent in violation of this Article 10 shall, at Landlords option, be a noncurable Default under Section 11.1 without the necessity of any notice and grace period. If Landlord elects to treat such unapproved assignment or sublease as a noncurable Default, Landlord may, in addition to all other remedies provided for in Section 11.2 below, increase the Monthly Base Rent for the portion of the Premises so sublet or assigned to one hundred ten percent (110%) of the Monthly Base Rent then in effect.
DEFAULT AND REMEDIES
The occurrence or existence of any one or more of the following shall constitute a Default by Tenant under this Lease:
(i) Tenant fails to pay any installment or other payment of Rent including Rent Adjustment Deposits or Rent Adjustments within five (5) days after the date when due and such failure continues for five (5) business days after written notice from Landlord;
(ii) Tenant violates the restrictions on assignments and subleases set forth in Article 10 Assignment and Subletting;
(iii) Tenant fails to maintain any insurance policy required hereunder, and fails to cure such default within five business (5) days after written notice thereof to Tenant;
(iv) Tenant fails to observe or perform any of the other covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease and fails to cure such default within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof to Tenant, unless the default involves an Environmental Condition, which shall be cured forthwith or unless the failure to perform is a Default for which this Lease
specifies there is no cure or grace period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any such cure cannot be completed within such thirty (30) day period, Tenant shall have such longer period as is needed to complete such sure so long as the cure is commenced within such thirty (30) day period and is diligently pursued to completion, not to exceed ninety (90) days;
(v) the interest of Tenant in this Lease is levied upon under execution or other legal process;
(vi) a petition is filed by or against Tenant to declare Tenant bankrupt or seeking a plan of reorganization or arrangement under any Chapter of the Bankruptcy Code, or any amendment, replacement or substitution therefor, or to delay payment of, reduce or modify Tenants debts, which in the case of an involuntary action is not discharged within thirty (30) days;
(vii) Tenant is declared insolvent by Law or any assignment of Tenants property is made for the benefit of creditors;
(viii) a receiver is appointed for Tenant or Tenants property, which appointment is not discharged within thirty (30) days;
(ix) any action taken by or against Tenant to reorganize or modify Tenants capital structure in a materially adverse way which in the case of an involuntary action is not discharged within thirty (30) days; or
(x) upon the dissolution of Tenant.
(a) A Default shall constitute a breach of this Lease for which Landlord shall have the rights and remedies set forth in this Section 11.2 and all other rights and remedies set forth in this Lease or now or hereafter allowed by Law, whether legal or equitable, and all rights and remedies of Landlord shall be cumulative and none shall exclude any other right or remedy now or hereafter allowed by applicable Law.
(b) With respect to a Default, at any time Landlord may terminate Tenants right to possession by written notice to Tenant stating such election. Any written notice required pursuant to Section 11.1 shall constitute notice of unlawful detainer pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 if, at Landlords sole discretion, it states Landlords election that Tenants right to possession is terminated after expiration of any period required by Law or any longer period required by Section 11.1. Upon the expiration of the period stated in Landlords written notice of termination (and unless such notice provides an option to cure within such period and Tenant cures the Default within such period), Tenants right to possession shall terminate and this Lease shall terminate, and Tenant shall remain liable as hereinafter provided. Upon such termination in writing of Tenants right to possession, Landlord shall have the right, subject to applicable Law, to re-enter the Premises and dispossess Tenant and the legal representatives of Tenant and all other occupants of the Premises by unlawful detainer or other summary proceedings, or as otherwise permitted by Law, regain possession of the Premises and remove their property (including their trade fixtures, personal property and
Required Removables pursuant to Article 12), but Landlord shall not be obligated to effect such removal, and such property may, at Landlords option, be stored elsewhere, sold or otherwise dealt with as permitted by Law, at the risk of, expense of and for the account of Tenant, and the proceeds of any sale shall be applied pursuant to Law. Landlord shall in no event be responsible for the value, preservation or safekeeping of any such property. Tenant hereby waives all claims for damages that may be caused by Landlords removing or storing Tenants personal property pursuant to this Section or Section 12.1, and Tenant hereby indemnifies, and agrees to defend, protect and hold harmless, the Landlord Indemnitees from any and all loss, claims, demands, actions, expenses, liability and cost (including attorneys fees and expenses) arising out of or in any way related to such removal or storage. Upon such written termination of Tenants right to possession and this Lease, Landlord shall have the right to recover damages for Tenants Default as provided herein or by Law, including the following damages provided by California Civil Code Section 1951.2:
(1) the worth at the time of award of the unpaid Rent which had been earned at the time of termination;
(2) 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 Rent loss that Tenant proves could reasonably have been avoided;
(3) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the term of this Lease after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided;
(4) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenants failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom, including, without limitation, Landlords unamortized costs of tenant improvements, leasing commissions and legal fees incurred in connection with entering into this Lease; and
(5) any other amounts, in addition to or in lieu of those listed above, that may be permitted by applicable Law.
The word rent as used in this Section 11.2 shall have the same meaning as the defined term Rent in this Lease. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in clauses (1) and (2) above is computed by allowing interest at the Default Rate. The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in clause (3) above is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%). For the purpose of determining unpaid Rent under clause (3) above, the monthly Rent reserved in this Lease shall be deemed to be the sum of the Monthly Base Rent, monthly storage space rent, if any, the amounts last payable by Tenant as Rent Adjustments for the calendar year in which Landlord terminated this Lease as provided hereinabove, and any additional Rent under this Lease.
(c) Even if Tenant is in Default, this Lease shall continue in effect for so long as Landlord does not terminate Tenants right to possession by written notice as provided in Section 11.2(b) above, and Landlord may enforce all its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover Rent as it becomes due under this Lease. In such event, Landlord shall have all of the rights and remedies of a landlord under California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (lessor may continue Lease in effect after lessees breach and abandonment and recover Rent as it becomes due, if lessee has the right to sublet or assign, subject only to reasonable limitations), or any successor statute. During such time as Tenant is in Default, if Landlord has not terminated this Lease by written notice and if Tenant requests Landlords consent to an assignment of this Lease or a sublease of the Premises, such consent shall be governed by the terms and conditions of Article 10 above. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the provisions of Article 10 shall be deemed to constitute reasonable limitations of Tenants right to assign or sublet. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that in the absence of written notice pursuant to Section 11.2(b) above terminating Tenants right to possession, no other act of Landlord shall constitute a termination of Tenants right to possession or an acceptance of Tenants surrender of the Premises, including acts of maintenance or preservation or efforts to relet the Premises or the appointment of a receiver upon initiative of Landlord to protect Landlords interest under this Lease or the withholding of consent to a subletting or assignment, or terminating a subletting or assignment, if in accordance with other provisions of this Lease.
(d) In the event that Landlord seeks an injunction with respect to a breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any of the covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease, Tenant agrees to pay the premium for any bond required in connection with such injunction.
(e) Tenant hereby waives any and all rights to relief from forfeiture, redemption or reinstatement granted by Law (including California Civil Code of Procedure Sections 1174 and 1179) in the event of Tenant being evicted or dispossessed for any cause or in the event of Landlord obtaining possession of the Premises by reason of Tenants Default or otherwise;
(f) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease, a notice to Tenant given under this Article and Article 24 of this Lease or given pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161, and any notice served by mail, shall be deemed served, and the requisite waiting period deemed to begin under said Code of Civil Procedure Section upon mailing (except as may be required under Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 et seq.), without any additional waiting requirement under Code of Civil Procedure Section 1011 et seq. or by other Law. For purposes of Code of Civil Procedure Section 1162, Tenants place of residence, usual place of business, the property and the place where the property is situated shall mean and be the Premises, whether or not Tenant has vacated same at the time of service.
(g) The voluntary or other surrender or termination of this Lease, or a mutual termination or cancellation thereof, shall not work a merger and shall terminate all or any existing assignments, subleases, subtenancies or occupancies permitted by Tenant, except if and as otherwise specified in writing by Landlord.
(h) No delay or omission in the exercise of any right or remedy of Landlord upon any default by Tenant, and no exercise by Landlord of its rights pursuant to Section 25.16 to perform any duty which Tenant fails timely to perform, shall impair any right or remedy or be construed as a waiver. No provision of this Lease shall be deemed waived by Landlord unless such waiver is in writing signed by Landlord. The waiver by Landlord of any breach of any provision of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision of this Lease.
In the event any party brings any suit or other proceeding with respect to the subject matter or enforcement of this Lease, the prevailing party (as determined by the court, agency or other authority before which such suit or proceeding is commenced) shall, in addition to such other relief as may be awarded, be entitled to recover attorneys fees, expenses and costs of investigation as reasonably and actually incurred, including court costs, expert witness fees, costs and expenses of investigation, and all reasonable and actual attorneys fees, costs and expenses in any such suit or proceeding (including in any action or participation in or in connection with any case or proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code, 11 United States Code Sections 101 et seq. (the Bankruptcy Code), or any successor statutes, in establishing or enforcing the right to indemnification, in appellate proceedings, or in connection with the enforcement or collection of any judgment obtained in any such suit or proceeding).
The following provisions shall apply in the event of the bankruptcy or insolvency of Tenant:
(a) In connection with any proceeding under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code where the trustee of Tenant elects to assume this Lease for the purposes of assigning it, such election or assignment, may only be made upon compliance with the provisions of (b) and (c) below, which conditions Landlord and Tenant acknowledge to be commercially reasonable. In the event the trustee elects to reject this Lease, then Landlord shall immediately be entitled to possession of the Premises without further obligation to Tenant or the trustee.
(b) Any election to assume this Lease under Chapter 11 or 13 of the Bankruptcy Code by Tenant as debtor-in-possession or by Tenants trustee (the Electing Party) must provide for:
The Electing Party to cure or provide to Landlord adequate assurance that it will cure all monetary defaults under this Lease within fifteen (15) days from the date of assumption, and that it will cure all nonmonetary defaults under this Lease within thirty (30) days from the date of assumption. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge such condition to be commercially reasonable.
(c) If the Electing Party has assumed this Lease or elects to assign Tenants interest under this Lease to any other person, such interest may be assigned only if the intended assignee has provided adequate assurance of future performance (as herein defined), of all of the obligations imposed on Tenant under this Lease.
For the purposes hereof, adequate assurance of future performance means that Landlord has ascertained that each of the following conditions has been satisfied:
(i) The assignee has submitted a current financial statement, certified by its chief financial officer, which shows a net worth and working capital in amounts sufficient to assure the future performance by the assignee of Tenants obligations under this Lease; and
(ii) Landlord has obtained consents or waivers from any third parties that may be required under a lease, mortgage, financing arrangement, or other agreement by which Landlord is bound, to enable Landlord to permit such assignment.
(d) Landlords acceptance of rent or any other payment from any trustee, receiver, assignee, person, or other entity will not be deemed to have waived, or waive, the requirement of Landlords consent, Landlords right to terminate this Lease for any transfer of Tenants interest under this Lease without such consent, or Landlords claim for any amount of Rent due from Tenant.
Landlord shall be in default hereunder in the event Landlord has not commenced and pursued with reasonable diligence the cure of any failure of Landlord to meet its obligations hereunder within thirty (30) days after the receipt by Landlord of written notice from Tenant of the alleged failure to perform. Failure to provide the requisite notice and cure period by Tenant under this paragraph shall be an absolute defense by Landlord against any claims for failure to perform any of its obligations. In no event shall Tenant have the right to terminate or rescind this Lease as a result of Landlords default as to any covenant or agreement contained in this Lease. Tenant hereby waives such remedies of termination and rescission and hereby agrees that Tenants remedies for default hereunder and for breach of any promise or inducement shall be limited to a suit for damages and/or injunction. In addition, Tenant hereby covenants that, prior to the exercise of any such remedies, it will give any Mortgagee of which Tenant has been notified a notice and a reasonable time to cure any default by Landlord (as specified in Section 23.2 below).
SURRENDER OF PREMISES
Upon the Termination Date, Tenant shall surrender and vacate the Premises immediately and deliver possession thereof to Landlord in as clean, good and tenantable condition as existed at the Rent Commencement Date, ordinary wear and tear excepted, and any damage from casualty and condemnation, and damage caused by Landlord, shall be governed by the provisions of this Lease dealing specifically therewith. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord all keys to the Premises. All improvements in and to the Premises, including any Tenant Alterations (collectively, Leasehold Improvements) shall remain upon the Premises at the end of the Term without compensation to Tenant, except for autoclaves and other specialized fixtures which Tenant may remove as such specialized fixtures may be mutually agreed between the parties from time to time. Landlord, however, by written notice to Tenant, may require Tenant, at its expense, to remove any Tenant Additions that, in Landlords reasonable judgment, are of a nature that would require removal and repair costs that are materially in excess of the removal and repair costs associated with standard laboratory and office improvements, but only to the extent that (a) Landlord notified Tenant of such required removal at the time Landlord approved
such Tenant Work or Alteration (collectively referred to as Required Removables), and (b) Landlord acted reasonably in requiring such removal. Tenant shall not be required to remove any Tenant Additions not identified as Required Removables and shall not be required to remove any Cables or cabling. Required Removables may include, without limitation, internal stairways, raised floors, personal baths and showers, vaults, rolling file systems and structural alterations and modifications. The designated Required Removables shall be removed by Tenant before the Termination Date. Tenants removal and disposal of items pursuant to this Section 12.1 must comply with the Projects Sustainability Practices and Tenant is strongly encouraged to comply with the applicable Green Building Standards. Tenant shall repair damage caused by the installation or removal of Required Removables. If Tenant fails to perform its obligations in a timely manner, Landlord may perform such work at Tenants expense. Landlord shall advise Tenant in writing, at the time Tenant requests approval for any proposed Alteration, whether such Alteration or any portion of such Alteration is a Required Removable. In the event possession of the Premises is not delivered to Landlord when required hereunder, or if Tenant shall fail to remove those items described above, Landlord may (but shall not be obligated to), at Tenants expense, remove any of such property and store, sell or otherwise deal with such property, and undertake, at Tenants expense, such restoration work as Landlord deems necessary or advisable. Notwithstanding anything in this Section 12.1 to the contrary, failure by Tenant to strictly comply with the provisions of this Section 12.1 with respect to any Required Removables that are required to be removed from the Premises by Tenant hereunder shall constitute a failure of Tenant to validly surrender the Premises.
All property which may be removed from the Premises by Landlord after the termination or expiration of this Lease shall be conclusively presumed to have been abandoned by Tenant and Landlord may deal with such property as provided in Section 11.2(b), including the waiver and indemnity obligations provided in that Section. Tenant shall also reimburse Landlord for all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in removing any Tenant Additions and in restoring the Premises to the condition required by this Lease at the Termination Date.
In the event that Tenant holds over in possession of the Premises after the Termination Date, for each month or partial month Tenant holds over possession of the Premises, Tenant shall pay Landlord 150% of the Monthly Base Rent payable for the month immediately preceding the holding over and 100% of any applicable Rent Adjustments or increases to Rent Adjustments which Landlord may reasonably estimate). Tenant shall also pay all damages, including consequential damages, sustained by Landlord by reason of such holding over, provided that Tenant shall only be liable for direct damages sustained by Landlord for the first thirty (30) days of Tenants hold over, but shall be liable for consequential damages due to any hold over exceeding thirty (30) days (except as otherwise provided in Section 7.1(f)(13)(i) above). The provisions of this Article shall not constitute a waiver by Landlord of any re-entry rights of Landlord, and Tenants continued occupancy of the Premises shall be as a tenancy in sufferance.
DAMAGE BY FIRE OR OTHER CASUALTY
(a) If any fire or other casualty (whether insured or uninsured) renders all or a substantial portion of the Premises or the Building untenantable, Landlord shall, with reasonable promptness after the occurrence of such damage, estimate the length of time that will be required to substantially complete the repair and restoration and shall, by notice advise Tenant of such estimate (Landlords Notice). If Landlord estimates that the amount of time required to substantially complete such repair and restoration will exceed one hundred eighty (180) days from the date such damage occurred, then Landlord, or Tenant if either thirty percent (30%) of the lab space within the Premises, or fifty percent (50%) or more of the entire Premises is rendered untenantable or inaccessible, shall have the right to terminate this Lease as of the date of such damage by delivering written notice to the other at any time within thirty (30) days after delivery of Landlords Notice, provided that if Landlord so chooses, Landlords Notice may also constitute such notice of termination.
(b) Unless this Lease is terminated as provided in the preceding subparagraph, Landlord shall proceed with reasonable promptness to repair and restore the Premises to its condition as existed prior to such casualty, subject to reasonable delays for insurance adjustments and Force Majeure delays, and also subject to zoning Laws and building codes then in effect. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant, and Tenant shall not be entitled to terminate this Lease if such repairs and restoration are not in fact completed within the time period estimated by Landlord so long as Landlord shall proceed with reasonable diligence to complete such repairs and restoration.
(c) Tenant acknowledges that Landlord shall be entitled to the full proceeds of any insurance coverage, whether carried by Landlord or Tenant, for damages to the Premises, except for those proceeds of Tenants insurance for its own personal property and equipment which would be removable by Tenant at the Termination Date, (ii) proceeds of any business interruption insurance maintained by Tenant, and (iii) proceeds of any insurance carried by Tenant covering the loss of any Tenant Additions. All such insurance proceeds shall be payable to Landlord whether or not the Premises are to be repaired and restored; provided, however, if this Lease is not terminated and the parties proceed to repair and restore Tenant Additions at Tenants cost, to the extent Landlord received proceeds of Tenants insurance covering Tenant Additions, such proceeds shall be applied to reimburse Tenant for its cost of repairing and restoring Tenant Additions.
(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein set forth: (i) Landlord shall have no duty pursuant to this Section to repair or restore any portion of any Tenant Additions or to expend for any repair or restoration of the Premises or Building in amounts in excess of insurance proceeds paid to Landlord and available for repair or restoration; and (ii) Tenant shall not have the right to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section if any damage or destruction was caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant, its agent or employees. Whether or not this Lease is terminated pursuant to this Article 14, in no event shall Tenant be entitled to any compensation or damages for loss of the use of the whole or any part of the Premises or for any inconvenience or annoyance occasioned by any such damage, destruction, rebuilding or restoration of the Premises or the Building or access thereto.
(e) Any repair or restoration of the Premises performed by Tenant shall be in accordance with the provisions of Article 9 hereof.
If the Premises or the Building is damaged by a casualty but neither is rendered substantially untenantable or inaccessible and Landlord estimates that the time to substantially complete the repair or restoration will not exceed one hundred eighty (180) days from the date such damage occurred, then Landlord shall proceed to repair and restore the Building or the Premises other than Tenant Additions, with reasonable promptness, unless such damage is to the Premises and occurs during the last six (6) months of the Term, in which event either Tenant or Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease as of the date of such casualty by giving written notice thereof to the other within thirty (30) days after the date of such casualty. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Landlords obligation to repair shall be limited in accordance with the provisions of Section 14.1 above.
Except for the negligence or willful act of Tenant or its agents, employees, contractors or invitees, if all or any part of the Premises are rendered untenantable or inaccessible by fire or other casualty and this Lease is not terminated, Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall abate for that part of the Premises which is untenantable on a per diem basis from the date of the casualty until Landlord has Substantially Completed the repair and restoration work in the Premises which it is required to perform, provided, that as a result of such casualty, Tenant does not occupy the portion of the Premises which is untenantable during such period.
WAIVER OF STATUTORY REMEDIES
The provisions of this Lease, including this Article 14, constitute an express agreement between Landlord and Tenant with respect to any and all damage to, or destruction of, the Premises or the Property or any part of either, and any Law, including Sections 1932(2), 1933(4), 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code, with respect to any rights or obligations concerning damage or destruction shall have no application to this Lease or to any damage to or destruction of all or any part of the Premises or the Property or any part of either, and are hereby waived.
TAKING OF WHOLE OR SUBSTANTIAL PART
In the event the whole or any substantial part of the Building or of the Premises is taken or condemned by any competent authority for any public use or purpose (including a deed given in lieu of condemnation) and is thereby rendered untenantable or such taking could reasonably be expected to prevent Tenant from operating its business in substantially the manner operated
by Tenant prior to such taking, this Lease shall terminate as of the date title vests in such authority, and Monthly Base Rent and Rent Adjustments shall be apportioned as of the Termination Date. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein set forth, in the event the taking is temporary (for less than the remaining Term of this Lease), Landlord may elect either (i) to terminate this Lease or (ii) permit Tenant to receive the entire award attributable to the Premises in which case Tenant shall continue to pay Rent and this Lease shall not terminate.
TAKING OF PART
In the event a part of the Building or the Premises is taken or condemned by any competent authority (or a deed is delivered in lieu of condemnation) and this Lease is not terminated, this Lease shall be amended to reduce or increase, as the case may be, the Monthly Base Rent and Tenants Share to reflect the Rentable Area of the Premises or Building, as the case may be, remaining after any such taking or condemnation. Landlord, upon receipt and to the extent of the award in condemnation (or proceeds of sale) shall make necessary repairs and restorations to the Premises (exclusive of Tenant Additions) and to the Building to the extent necessary to constitute the portion of the Building not so taken or condemned as a complete architectural and economically efficient unit.

Landlord shall be entitled to receive the entire award (or sale proceeds) from any such taking, condemnation or sale without any payment to Tenant, and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord, Tenants interest, if any, in such award; provided, however, Tenant shall have the right separately to pursue against the condemning authority a separate award in respect of the loss, if any, to Tenant Additions paid for by Tenant without any credit or allowance from Landlord so long as there is no diminution of Landlords award as a result.

FORM OF POLICIES
Each policy referred to in Section 16.1 shall satisfy the following requirements.

Without obligation to do so, Landlord may, in its sole discretion from time to time, carry insurance in amounts greater and/or for coverage additional to the coverage and amounts set forth above.

(b) Tenant agrees to include, if obtainable at no, or minimal, additional cost, and so long as the same is permitted under the laws of the State of California, in its All Risks insurance policy or policies on Tenant Additions, whether or not removable, and on Tenants furniture, furnishings, fixtures and other property removable by Tenant under the provisions of this Lease, appropriate clauses pursuant to which the insurance company or companies (i) waive the right of subrogation against Landlord and/or any tenant of space in the Building with respect to losses payable under such policy or policies and/or (ii) agree that such policy or policies shall not be invalidated should the insured waive in writing prior to a loss any or all right of recovery against any party for losses covered by such policy or policies. If Tenant is unable to obtain in such policy or policies either of the clauses described in the preceding sentence, Tenant shall, if legally possible and without necessitating a change in insurance carriers, have Landlord named in such policy or policies as an additional insured. If Landlord shall be named as an additional insured in accordance with the foregoing, Landlord agrees to endorse promptly to the order of Tenant, without recourse, any check, draft, or order for the payment of money representing the proceeds of any such policy or representing any other payment growing out of or connected with said policies, and Landlord does hereby irrevocably waive any and all rights in and to such proceeds and payments.
(c) Provided that Landlords right of full recovery under its policy or policies aforesaid is not adversely affected or prejudiced thereby, Landlord hereby waives any and all right of recovery which it might otherwise have against Tenant, its servants, agents and employees, for loss or damage occurring to the Real Property and the fixtures, appurtenances and equipment therein, to the extent the same is covered by Landlords insurance, notwithstanding that such loss or damage may result from the negligence or fault of Tenant, its servants, agents or employees. Provided that Tenants right of full recovery under its aforesaid policy or policies is not adversely affected or prejudiced thereby, Tenant hereby waives any and all right of recovery which it might otherwise have against Landlord, its servants, and employees and against every other tenant of the Real Property who shall have executed a similar waiver as set forth in this Section 16.4(c) for loss or damage to Tenant Additions, whether or not removable, and to Tenants furniture, furnishings, fixtures and other property removable by Tenant under the provisions hereof to the extent the same is coverable by Tenants insurance required under this Lease, notwithstanding that such loss or damage may result from the negligence or fault of Landlord, its servants, agents or employees, or such other tenant and the servants, agents or employees thereof.
(d) Landlord and Tenant hereby agree to advise the other promptly if the clauses to be included in their respective insurance policies pursuant to subparagraphs (a) and (b) above cannot be obtained on the terms hereinbefore provided. Landlord and Tenant hereby also agree to notify the other promptly of any cancellation or change of the terms of any such policy that would affect such clauses.

Tenant shall give Landlord notice in case of a fire or accident in the Premises promptly after Tenant is aware of such event.
WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND INDEMNITY
WAIVER OF CLAIMS
To the extent permitted by Law, Tenant hereby releases the Landlord Indemnitees from, and waives all claims for, damage to person or property sustained by Tenant or any occupant of the Premises or the Property resulting directly or indirectly from any existing or future condition, defect, matter or thing in and about the Premises or the Property or any part of either or any equipment or appurtenance therein, or resulting from any accident in or about the Premises or the Property, or resulting directly or indirectly from any act or neglect of any tenant or occupant of the Property or of any other person, including Landlords agents and servants, except to the extent caused by the gross negligence or willful and wrongful act of any of the Landlord Indemnitees. To the extent permitted by Law, Tenant hereby waives any consequential damages, compensation or claims for inconvenience or loss of business, rents, or profits as a result of such injury or damage, whether or not caused by the gross negligence or willful and wrongful act of any of the Indemnitees.

Tenant shall not be liable for any such damage caused by its acts or neglect to the extent Landlord or a tenant has recovered the full amount of the damage from proceeds of insurance policies and the insurance company has waived its right of subrogation against Tenant.
(a) To the extent permitted by Law, Tenant hereby indemnifies, and agrees to protect, defend and hold the Landlord Indemnitees harmless, against any and all actions, claims, demands, liability, costs and expenses, including reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys fees and expenses for the defense thereof, arising from Tenants occupancy of the Premises, from the undertaking of any Tenant Additions or repairs to the Premises, from the conduct of Tenants business on the Premises, or from any breach or default on the part of Tenant in the performance of any covenant or agreement on the part of Tenant to be performed pursuant to the terms of this Lease, or from any willful act or negligence of Tenant, its agents, contractors, servants, employees, customers or invitees, in or about the Premises or the Property or any part of either. In case of any action or proceeding brought against the Landlord Indemnitees by reason of any such claim, upon notice from Landlord, Tenant covenants to defend such action or proceeding by counsel chosen Landlord, in Landlords sole discretion. Landlord reserves the right to settle, compromise or dispose of any and all actions, claims and demands related to the foregoing indemnity. The foregoing indemnity shall not operate to relieve Landlord Indemnitees of liability to the extent such liability is caused by the willful and wrongful act of Landlord Indemnitees.

(b) Subject to the provisions of Sections 17.1 and 17.2(a) above, Landlord shall indemnify, defend and protect Tenant (and its partners, officers, shareholders, directors, members, managers, trustees, beneficiaries, employees, transferees, principals, contractors, servants, agents and representatives (Tenant and such other parties being referred to herein each as a Tenant Indemnitee), and hold Tenant Indemnitees harmless of and from any and all claims, proceedings, loss, cost, damage, causes of action, liabilities, injury or expense arising out of or related to claims of injury to or death of persons, damage to property occurring or resulting directly or indirectly from the active negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its authorized agents, but only to the extent that such indemnity obligations of Landlord hereunder would be covered by the proceeds of liability insurance maintained by Landlord, such indemnity to include, but without limitation, the obligation to provide all costs of defense against any such claims; provided, however, that the foregoing indemnity shall not be applicable to claims to the extent arising by reason of the active negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or any Tenant Indemnitees. The foregoing notwithstanding, Landlord shall not be required to indemnify or defend Tenant Indemnitees from any claims, proceedings, loss, cost, damage, causes of action, liabilities, injury or expense arising out of or related to theft, fire, vandalism, assault, battery, act of God, breaches of security, acts of the public enemy, acts of terrorists or criminals, riot, strike, insurrection, war, court order, requisition or order of governmental body or authority, whether or not the negligence of Landlord or its agents or employees was a cause of, or in any way contributed to, such loss, damage, death or injury. This Section 17(b) shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

RULES AND REGULATIONS
Tenant agrees for itself and for its subtenants, employees, agents, and invitees to comply with the rules and regulations listed on Exhibit C-2 attached hereto and with all reasonable modifications and additions thereto which Landlord may make from time to time so long as such modifications and additions apply to all tenants generally and not to specific tenants.

Within ten (10) business days after request therefor by Landlord, Mortgagee or any prospective mortgagee or owner, Tenant agrees as directed in such request to execute an Estoppel Certificate, binding upon Tenant, certifying (i) that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or if there have been modifications, a description of such modifications and that this Lease as modified is in full force and effect); (ii) the dates to which Rent has been paid; (iii) that Tenant is in the possession of the Premises if that is the case; (iv) that to Tenants actual knowledge, Landlord is not in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, or, if Tenant believes Landlord is in default, the nature thereof in detail; (v) that to Tenants actual knowledge, Tenant has no offsets or defenses to the performance of its obligations under this Lease (or if Tenant believes there are any offsets or defenses, a full and complete explanation thereof); (vi) that to Tenants actual knowledge and subject to fulfillment of Landlords continuing maintenance and repair obligations under the Lease, the Premises have been completed in accordance with the terms and provisions hereof or the Workletter, that Tenant has accepted the Premises and the condition thereof and of all improvements thereto and has no claims against Landlord with respect thereto; (vii) that if an assignment of rents or leases has been served upon Tenant by a Mortgagee, Tenant will acknowledge receipt thereof and agree to be bound by the provisions thereof; (viii) that Tenant will give to the Mortgagee copies of all notices of default given by Tenant to Landlord; and (ix) to any other factual information about the status of the Lease reasonably and customarily requested.
In the event that Tenant fails to timely deliver an Estoppel Certificate, then Landlord shall send Tenant a second written notice requesting delivery of the Estoppel Certificate (Second Estoppel Notice) and such Second Estoppel Notice shall include the following: FAILURE TO DELIVER AN ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 20 OF THE LEASE WITHIN TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS SHALL BE DEEMED A DEFAULT UNDER THE LEASE FOR WHICH THERE SHALL BE NO CURE OR GRACE PERIOD. If Tenant fails to deliver an Estoppel Certificate within ten (10) business days after receiving the Second Estoppel Notice, such failure shall be a Default for which there shall be no cure or grace period. After Tenants failure to deliver an Estoppel Certificate within ten (10) business days after receipt of the Second Estoppel Notice, and in addition to any other remedy available to Landlord, Landlord may impose a charge equal to $500.00 for each day that Tenant fails to deliver an Estoppel Certificate; and (i) Tenant shall be bound to, and deemed to have irrevocably agreed to, the accuracy and truthfulness of the Estoppel Certificate delivered to Tenant, and (ii) Landlord, and any third party receiving such form of Estoppel Certificate, including a Mortgagee or purchaser, may rely upon the accuracy and truthfulness thereof.
REAL ESTATE BROKERS
Tenant represents that, except for the broker(s) listed in Section 1.1(15), Tenant has not dealt with any real estate broker, sales person, or finder in connection with this Lease, and no such person initiated or participated in the negotiation of this Lease, or showed the Premises to Tenant. Tenant hereby agrees to indemnify, protect, defend and hold Landlord and the Landlord Indemnitees, harmless from and against any and all liabilities and claims for commissions and fees arising out of a breach of the foregoing representation, as well as from any claim or claims for any commission or fee by any broker or other party claiming to represent Tenant in connection with any future extensions or renewals of the Term. Landlord agrees to pay any commission to which the brokers listed in Section 1.1(15) are entitled in connection with this Lease pursuant to Landlords written agreement with such broker. Landlord represents that, except for the broker(s) listed in Section 1.1(15), Landlord has not dealt with any real estate broker, sales person, or finder in connection with this Lease, and Landlord hereby agrees to indemnify, protect, defend and hold Tenant and the Tenant Indemnitees, harmless from and against any and all liabilities and claims for commissions and fees arising out of a breach of the foregoing representation.
SUBORDINATION AND ATTORNMENT
(a) Subject to Tenants rights under Section 23.1(b) below regarding the SNDA (as defined in Section 23.1(b) below), this Lease is and shall be expressly subject and subordinate at all times to (i) any ground or underlying lease of the Real Property, now or hereafter existing, and all amendments, extensions, renewals and modifications to any such lease, and (ii) the lien of any mortgage or trust deed now or hereafter encumbering fee title to the Real Property and/or the leasehold estate under any such lease, and all amendments, extensions, renewals, replacements and modifications of such mortgage or trust deed and/or the obligation secured thereby, unless such ground lease or ground lessor, or mortgage, trust deed or Mortgagee, expressly provides or elects that this Lease shall be superior to such lease or mortgage or trust deed. If any such mortgage or trust deed is foreclosed (including any sale of the Real Property pursuant to a power of sale), or if any such lease is terminated, upon request of the Mortgagee or ground lessor, as the case may be, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser at the foreclosure sale or to the ground lessor under such lease, as the case may be, provided, however, except as otherwise provided in the SNDA, such purchaser or ground lessor shall not be (i) bound by any payment of Rent for more than one month in advance except payments in the nature of security for the performance by Tenant of its obligations under this Lease; (ii) subject to any offset, defense or damages arising out of a default of any obligations of any preceding Landlord except for offsets specifically identified in this Lease (if any) and defaults of a continuing nature which exist at the time of Tenants attornment; or (iii) bound by any material amendment or modification of this Lease made without the written consent of the Mortgagee or ground lessor which (A) reduces the Term of the Lease, (B) reduces the Rent payable hereunder; (C) changes any notice or cure period granted to Landlord set forth herein or (D) materially increase the obligations of Landlord hereunder; or (iv) liable for any security deposits not actually received in cash by such purchaser or ground lessor. In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall execute promptly the SNDA. The terms of this paragraph shall survive any termination of this Lease by reason of foreclosure.
(b) Tenants obligation to subordinate to any Mortgagee shall be conditioned on Landlord, at its sole cost and expense, causing such Mortgagee to sign and deliver to Tenant a non-disturbance agreement in substantially the form attached as Exhibit D hereto (the SNDA); provided, however, that (i) delivery of the SNDA executed by such Mortgagee shall be deemed satisfaction of the condition set forth in this Section 23.1(b), and (ii) Tenant shall be responsible for its own attorneys fees in connection with the SNDA.
Tenant agrees to give any Mortgagee or ground lessor, by registered or certified mail, a copy of any notice of default served upon Landlord by Tenant, provided that prior to such notice Tenant has received notice (by way of service on Tenant of a copy of an assignment of rents and leases, or otherwise) of the address of such Mortgagee or ground lessor. Tenant further agrees that if Landlord shall have failed to cure such default within the time provided for in this Lease, then the Mortgagee or ground lessor shall have an additional thirty (30) days after receipt of notice thereof within which to cure such default or if such default cannot be cured within that time, then such additional notice time as may be necessary, if, within such thirty (30) days, any Mortgagee or ground lessor has commenced and is diligently pursuing the remedies necessary to cure such default (including commencement of foreclosure proceedings or other proceedings to acquire possession of the Real Property, if necessary to effect such cure). Such period of time shall be extended by any period within which such Mortgagee or ground lessor is prevented from commencing or pursuing such foreclosure proceedings or other proceedings to acquire possession of the Real Property by reason of Landlords bankruptcy. Until the time allowed as aforesaid for Mortgagee or ground lessor to cure such defaults has expired without cure, Tenant shall have no right to, and shall not, terminate this Lease on account of default. This Lease may not be modified or amended so as to reduce the Rent or shorten the Term, or so as to adversely affect in any other respect to any material extent the rights of Landlord, nor shall this Lease be canceled or surrendered, without the prior written consent, in each instance, of the ground lessor or the Mortgagee.
(a) All notices, demands or requests provided for or permitted to be given pursuant to this Lease must be in writing and shall be personally delivered, or sent by Federal Express or other reputable overnight courier service.
(b) All notices, demands or requests to be sent pursuant to this Lease shall be deemed to have been properly given or served by delivering or sending the same in accordance with this Section, addressed to the parties hereto at their respective addresses listed in Section 1.1.
(c) Notices, demands or requests delivered in person or sent by overnight courier service as described above shall be effective upon the date of receipt. However, except with respect to a notice given under Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 et seq., the time period in which a response to any such notice, demand or request must be given shall commence to run from in the case of delivery by Federal Express or other overnight courier service, the date of acceptance of delivery by an employee, officer, director or partner of Landlord or Tenant. Rejection or other refusal to accept or the inability to deliver because of changed address of which no notice was given, as indicated by advice from Federal Express or other overnight courier service, shall be deemed to be receipt of notice, demand or request sent. Notices may also be served by personal service upon any officer of Landlord or Tenant, and shall be effective upon such service.
(d) By giving to the other party at least ten (10) days written notice thereof, either party shall have the right from time to time during the term of this Lease to change their respective addresses for notices, statements, demands and requests, provided such new address shall be within the United States of America.
(a) All payments required hereunder (other than the Monthly Base Rent, Rent Adjustments, and Rent Adjustment Deposits, which shall be due as hereinbefore provided) to Landlord shall be paid within ten (10) business days after Landlords demand therefor. All such amounts (including Monthly Base Rent, Rent Adjustments, and Rent Adjustment Deposits) not paid when due shall bear interest from the date due until the date paid at the Default Rate in effect on the date such payment was due.
(b) In the event Tenant is more than five (5) days late in paying any installment of Rent due under this Lease, Tenant shall pay Landlord a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of the delinquent installment of Rent. The parties agree that (i) such delinquency will cause Landlord to incur costs and expenses not contemplated herein, the exact amount of which will be difficult to calculate, including the cost and expense that will be incurred by Landlord in processing each delinquent payment of rent by Tenant, (ii) the amount of such late charge represents a reasonable estimate of such costs and expenses and that such late charge shall be paid to Landlord for each delinquent payment in addition to all Rent otherwise due hereunder. The parties further agree that the payment of late charges and the payment of interest provided for in subparagraph (a) above are distinct and separate from one another in that the payment of interest is to compensate Landlord for its inability to use the money improperly withheld by Tenant, while the payment of late charges is to compensate Landlord for its additional administrative expenses in handling and processing delinquent payments.
(c) Payment of interest at the Default Rate and/or of late charges shall not excuse or cure any default by Tenant under this Lease, nor shall the foregoing provisions of this Article or any such payments prevent Landlord from exercising any right or remedy available to Landlord upon Tenants failure to pay Rent when due, including the right to terminate this Lease.
(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord agrees to waive and forgive the first (1st) of any such late charges and interest thereon arising during any twelve (12) consecutive months during the Term, provided that Landlord receives such overdue Rent or other sum within ten (10) Business Days after the date due.
NO JURY TRIAL; VENUE; JURISDICTION
To the fullest extent permitted by Laws, each party hereto (which includes any assignee, successor, heir or personal representative of a party) shall not seek a jury trial, hereby waives trial by jury, and hereby further waives any objection to venue in the County in which the Project is located, and agrees and consents to personal jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California, in any action or proceeding or counterclaim brought by any party hereto against the other on any matter whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with this Lease, the relationship of Landlord and Tenant, Tenants use or occupancy of the Premises, or any claim of injury or damage, or the enforcement of any remedy under any statute, emergency or otherwise, whether any of the foregoing is based on this Lease or on tort law. No party will seek to consolidate any such action in which a jury has been waived with any other action in which a jury trial cannot or has not been waived. It is the intention of the parties that these provisions shall be subject to no exceptions. The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
Tenant agrees for Tenant and Tenants successors and assigns and all persons claiming under or through Tenant, and this Lease is made and accepted upon and subject to the following conditions: that there shall be no discrimination against or segregation of any person or group of persons on account of race, color, creed, religion, sex, marital status, national origin or ancestry (whether in the leasing, subleasing, transferring, use, occupancy, tenure or enjoyment of the Premises or otherwise) nor shall Tenant or any person claiming under or through Tenant establish or permit any such practice or practices of discrimination or segregation with reference to the use or occupancy of the Premises by Tenant or any person claiming through or under Tenant.
Within ten (10) days after written request from Landlord from time to time during the Term (but not more than once per calendar year), Tenant shall provide Landlord with current financial statements setting forth Tenants financial condition and net worth for the most recent quarter, including balance sheets and statements of profits and losses. Such statements shall be prepared by an independent accountant and certified by Tenants president, chief executive officer or chief financial officer. Landlord shall execute a non-disclosure agreement in a form mutually acceptable to both parties, and shall keep such financial information confidential and shall only disclose such information to Landlords lenders, consultants, purchasers or investors, or other agents (who shall be subject to the same confidentiality obligations) on a need-to-know basis in connection with the administration of this Lease. Landlord acknowledges and agrees that as of the execution of this Lease, Tenant is a public company and that Tenant need not provide the financial statements required under this Section 25.4 so long as same are publicly available free of charge.
This Lease shall not become effective as a lease or otherwise until executed and delivered by both Landlord and Tenant. The submission of this Lease to Tenant does not constitute a reservation of or option for the Premises, but when executed by Tenant and delivered to Landlord, this Lease shall constitute an irrevocable offer by Tenant in effect for two (2) days to lease the Premises on the terms and conditions herein contained.
Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that it has full authority and power to enter into and perform its obligations under this Lease, that the person executing this Lease is fully empowered to do so, and that no consent or authorization is necessary from any third party.
Landlord represents and warrants to Tenant that it has full authority and power to enter into and perform its obligations under this Lease, that the person executing this Lease is fully empowered to do so, and that no consent or authorization is necessary from any third party.
This Lease, the Exhibits, and Riders attached hereto contain the entire agreement between Landlord and Tenant concerning the Premises and there are no other agreements, either oral or written, and no other representations or statements, either oral or written, on which Tenant has relied. This Lease shall not be modified except by a writing executed by Landlord and Tenant.
MODIFICATION OF LEASE FOR BENEFIT OF MORTGAGEE
If any Mortgagee of Landlord reasonably requires a modification of this Lease which shall not: (a) result in any increased cost or expense to Tenant, (b) change the size, location, use of character of the Premises, (c) impose any additional obligations on Tenant, or (d) materially decrease the rights of Tenant hereunder, then Tenant agrees that this Lease may be so modified.
Tenant agrees, on its behalf and on behalf of its successors and assigns, that any liability or obligation under this Lease shall only be enforced against Landlords equity interest in the Property up to a maximum of Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000.00) and in no event against any other assets of Landlord, or Landlords members, officers, directors or partners, and that any liability of Landlord with respect to this Lease shall be so limited and Tenant shall not be entitled to any judgment in excess of such amount. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in no event shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for consequential, punitive or special damages with respect to this Lease.
ACCORD AND SATISFACTION
No payment by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than any installment or payment of Rent due shall be deemed to be other than on account of the amount due, and no endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment of Rent shall be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlords right to recover the balance of such installment or payment of Rent or pursue any other remedies available to Landlord. No receipt of money by Landlord from Tenant after the termination of this Lease or Tenants right of possession of the Premises shall reinstate, continue or extend the Term. Receipt or acceptance of payment from anyone other than Tenant, including an assignee of Tenant, is not a waiver of any breach of Article 10, and Landlord may accept such payment on account of the amount due without prejudice to Landlords right to pursue any remedies available to Landlord.

Landlord discloses that to Landlords knowledge, neither the Building nor the Premises have undergone inspection by a Certified Access Specialist. Furthermore, pursuant to Section 1938 of the California Civil Code, Landlord notifies Tenant of the following: A Certified Access Specialist (CASp) can inspect the subject premises and determine whether the subject premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law. Although California state law does not require a CASp inspection of the subject premises, the commercial property owner or lessor may not prohibit the lessee or tenant from
obtaining a CASp inspection of the subject premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of the lessee or tenant, if requested by the lessee or tenant. The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of any such CASp inspection, the payment of the costs and fees for the CASp inspection and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the Premises. Tenant agrees that (a) Tenant may, at its option and at its sole cost, cause a CASp to inspect the Premises and determine whether the Premises complies with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under California law, (b) the parties shall mutually coordinate and reasonably approve of the timing of any such CASp inspection so that Landlord may, at its option, have a representative present during such inspection, and (c) Tenant shall be solely responsible for the cost of any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the Premises and Building identified by any such CASp inspection, any and all such alterations and repairs within the Premises to be performed by Tenant shall be subject to Landlords consent and in accordance with this Lease. Landlord and Tenant hereby agree that if Tenant elects to perform a CASp inspection of the Premises, Tenant will provide written notice to Landlord, and Landlord may elect, in Landlords sole discretion, to retain a CASp to perform the inspection. If Landlord does not so elect, the time and manner of the CASp inspection is subject to the prior written approval of Landlord. In either event, the payment of the fee for the CASp inspection shall be borne by Tenant.
This Lease may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which, together, shall constitute one and the same instrument. Telecopied signatures or signatures transmitted by electronic mail in so-called pdf format or via DocuSign or similar electronic means, may be used in place of original signatures on this Lease. Landlord and Tenant intend to be bound by the signatures on the telecopied or e-mailed document, are aware that the other party will rely on the telecopied or e-mailed signatures, and hereby waive any defenses to the enforcement of the terms of this Lease based on such telecopied or e-mailed signatures. Promptly following request by either party, the other party shall provide the requesting party with original signatures on this Lease.

Where Landlords written approval is required under this Workletter Agreement, if Landlord fails to respond within the later of ten (10) business days or such other timeframe designated herein, Landlord shall be deemed to have approved such request.
(a) Selection of Architect; Construction Drawings.
(i) Tenant shall retain an architect approved (or deemed approved) in writing, in advance by Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld (the Architect) to prepare the Construction Drawings. It is agreed that Albert Chiang of CAC Architects is so approved. Tenant shall retain engineering consultants approved (or deemed approved) in writing, in advance by Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld (the Building Consultants) to prepare all plans and engineering working drawings and perform all work relating to mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), HVAC/Air Balancing, life-safety, structural, sprinkler and riser work. In lieu of Tenant engaging a separate design firm or firms to design the MEP portion of the Construction Drawings, Landlord is willing to approve Tenant preparing such MEP portion on a design-build basis, subject to the following conditions: (A) Tenant agrees to engage Interface Engineers to create a basis of design (the BOD) to accommodate the Tenant Work; (B) the BOD shall be created with Landlords input and be subject to Landlords reasonable approval; and (C) Tenant engages subcontractors reasonably approved by Landlord to create such MEP portion.
(ii) The plans and drawings to be prepared by Architect and the Building Consultants hereunder (i.e., both the Space Plan and the Working Drawings, as each term is defined below) shall be known collectively as the Construction Drawings. All Construction Drawings shall comply with a drawing format and specifications to be mutually agreed upon by Landlord and Tenant and in accordance with construction industry standards, and such plans and drawings shall be subject to Landlords prior written approval (or deemed approval), not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Landlords review of the Construction Drawings shall be for its sole purpose and shall not obligate Landlord to review the same, for quality, design, Code compliance or other like matters. Accordingly, notwithstanding that any Construction Drawings are reviewed by Landlord or its space planner, architect, engineers and consultants, and notwithstanding any advice or assistance which may be rendered to Tenant by Landlord or Landlords space planner, architect, engineers, and consultants, Landlord shall have no liability whatsoever in connection therewith and shall not be responsible for any omissions or errors contained in the Construction Drawings.
(b) Space Plan. Tenant shall supply Landlord for Landlords review and approval (or deemed approval) with four (4) copies signed by Tenant of its space plan for the Premises (Space Plan) before any architectural working drawings or engineering drawings have been commenced. The Space Plan shall include a layout and designation of all laboratory facilities, offices, rooms and other partitioning, their intended use, and equipment to be contained therein. Landlord may request clarification or more specific drawings for special use items not included in the Space Plan. Subject to Section 2 of this Workletter Agreement, Landlord shall advise Tenant within ten (10) business days after Landlords receipt of the Space Plan (or, if applicable, such additional information requested by Landlord pursuant to the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence) if the same is approved or is unsatisfactory or incomplete in any respect. Upon any disapproval by Landlord, Tenant shall promptly cause the Space Plan to be revised to correct any deficiencies or other matters Landlord may reasonably require.

Tenant shall supply Landlord with four (4) copies signed by Tenant of the Working Drawings. Subject to Section 2 of this Workletter Agreement, Landlord shall advise Tenant within ten (10) business days after Landlords receipt of the Working Drawings if Landlord, in good faith, determines that the same are approved or are unsatisfactory or incomplete. If Tenant is so advised, Tenant shall promptly revise the Working Drawings to correct any deficiencies or other matters Landlord may reasonably require.
(d) Landlords Approval. Tenant acknowledges that it shall be deemed reasonable for Landlord to disapprove the Space Plan and any subsequent Working Drawings unless, at a minimum, the same are prepared on the basis that: (i) the Tenant Work as specified and designed comply with the requirements of the Projects Sustainability Practices (if any) and Tenant is strongly encouraged to complete the Tenant Work in a manner sufficient to achieve the applicable Green Building Standards set forth on Exhibit B-1, and (ii) the sprinkler systems shall be designed in compliance with the specifications provided by FM Global. Additionally, subject to Section 2 of this Workletter Agreement, Landlords approval of any matter under this Workletter Agreement may be withheld if Landlord reasonably determines that the same would violate any provision of the Lease or this Workletter Agreement or would adversely affect the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, life-safety or other systems of the Building, the curtain wall of the Building, the structure or exterior appearance of the Building.

Prior to the commencement of the construction of the Tenant Work, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a schedule of values consisting of a detailed breakdown, by trade, of the final costs to be incurred or which have been incurred, for all Tenant Work Allowance Items in connection with the design and construction of the Tenant Work, which costs form the basis for the amount of the Contract (Final Costs). Prior to the commencement of construction of the Tenant Work, Landlord and Tenant shall identify the amount (the Over-Allowance Amount) equal to the difference between the amount of the Final Costs and the amount of the Tenant Work Allowance (less any portion thereof already disbursed by Landlord, or in the process of being disbursed by Landlord, on or before the commencement of construction of the Tenant Work), and Landlord will reimburse Tenant on a monthly basis, as described in Section 1.2(b)(ii) above, for a percentage of each amount requested by the Contractor or otherwise to be disbursed under this Workletter Agreement, which percentage shall be equal to the Tenant Work Allowance divided by the amount of the Final Costs (after deducting from the Final Costs any amounts expended in connection with the preparation of the Construction Drawings, and the cost of all other Tenant Work Allowance Items incurred prior to the commencement of construction of the Tenant Work), and Tenant shall be solely responsible for any Over-Allowance Amount. If, after the Final Costs have been initially determined, the costs relating to the design and construction of the Tenant Work shall change, any additional costs for such design and construction in excess of the Final Costs shall be added to the Over-Allowance Amount and the Final Costs, and Landlords reimbursement percentage, shall be recalculated in accordance with the terms of the immediately preceding sentence.

So long as the Lease has not been terminated on account of Tenants default that has continued beyond applicable notice and cure periods, Bank shall not name or join Tenant as a defendant in any exercise of Banks right and remedies arising upon a default under the Loan unless applicable law requires Tenant to be made a party thereto as a condition to proceeding against Borrower or prosecuting such rights and remedies. In the latter case, Bank may join Tenant as a defendant in such action solely for such purpose.
4. Attornment. Subject to Section 3 above, if any Transfer of the Property should occur, Tenant shall and hereby does attorn to Purchaser, including Bank if it should be the Purchaser, as the landlord under the Lease, and each of Tenant and Purchaser shall be bound to all of the terms, covenants and conditions (including each partys respective executory rights and obligations) of the Lease, except as modified by this Agreement, for the balance of the Lease term and any extensions or renewals of it which may then or later be in effect under any validly exercised extension or renewal option contained in the Lease, all with the same force and effect as if Purchaser had been the original landlord under the Lease. This attornment shall be effective and self-operative without the execution of any further instruments upon Purchasers succeeding to the interest of the landlord under the Lease. Borrower hereby agrees that Tenants payment of any rent amounts to Bank or purchaser, as directed under this Section 4, shall constitute payments of Rent under the terms of the Lease, and Borrower waives all claims against Tenant for any sums paid to Bank or Purchaser, as applicable, in connection with the foregoing.
5. Subordination of Options and Rights of First Refusal. The Loan Documents and all supplements, amendments, modifications, renewals, replacements and extensions of and to them shall unconditionally be and remain at all times a lien on the Property prior and superior to any existing or future right of Tenant, whether arising out of the Lease or otherwise, to exercise any option or right of first refusal to purchase the Premises or the Property or any interest or portion in or of either of them. Tenant specifically agrees and acknowledges that upon any Transfer of the Property, any such purchase option or right of first refusal, whether now existing or in the future arising, shall terminate and be inapplicable to the Property notwithstanding the nondisturbance granted to Tenant in Section 3 above. If any option or right of first refusal to purchase is exercised prior to a Transfer of the Property, any title so acquired to all or any part of the Property shall be subject to the lien of the Loan Documents, which lien shall in no way be impaired by the exercise of such option or right of first refusal. Bank specifically reserves all of its rights to enforce any accelerating transfer, due on sale, due on encumbrance or similar provision in the Deed of Trust or any other Loan Document.
6. Notices of Default; Material Notices; Banks Rights to Cure Default. Tenant shall send a copy of any notice of default or similar statement with respect to the Lease to Bank at the same time such notice or statement is sent to Borrower. In the event of any act or omission by Borrower which would give Tenant the right to terminate the Lease or to claim a partial or total eviction, Tenant shall not exercise any such right or make any such claim until it has given Bank written notice of such act or omission and has given Bank the following applicable cure period to remedy such default: (i) with respect to monetary defaults, thirty (30) days after the expiration of Landlords cure period with respect to such monetary default; or (ii) with respect to nonmonetary defaults, sixty (60) days after the expiration of Landlords cure period with respect to such nonmonetary default, provided that if Bank commences a cure of such nonmonetary default within the prescribed period, and thereafter diligently pursues such cure to completion, the cure period shall be extended to provide Bank sufficient time to complete such cure. Acts taken by Bank to obtain possession of the Property shall be deemed acts taken to cure. Nothing in this Agreement, however, shall be construed as a promise or undertaking by Bank to cure any default of Borrower.
7. Limitation on Banks Performance. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed or construed to be an agreement by Bank to perform any covenant of Borrower as landlord under the Lease. Tenant agrees that if Bank becomes Purchaser then, upon subsequent transfer of the Property by Bank to a new owner, Bank shall have no further liability under the Lease after said transfer.
8. Limitation on Liability. No Purchaser who acquires title to the Property shall have any obligation or liability beyond its interest in the Property, including insurance and condemnation proceeds, Purchasers interest in the Lease and the proceeds from any sale or other disposition of the Property by Purchaser.
9. Tenants Covenants. Tenant agrees that during the term of the Lease, without Banks prior written consent, Tenant shall not:
(a) pay any rent or additional rent more than one month in advance to any landlord including Borrower except and to the extent expressly required under the Lease; or
(b) cancel, terminate or surrender the Lease, except at the normal expiration of the Lease term or as provided in Section 6 above; or
(c) enter into any amendment, modification or other agreement relating to the Lease except as otherwise contemplated in the Lease; or
(d) assign or sublet any portion of the Lease or the Premises, except as expressly permitted in the Lease.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower and Tenant may enter into lease amendments and/or modifications without Banks prior consent, and Purchaser shall be bound to such amendments to the same extent Borrower would be bound, provided any such amendment or modification does not: (A) materially change the economic terms of the Lease; (B) increase the obligations of Borrower under the Lease in any material respect; (C) reduce the rights and remedies of Borrower under the Lease in any material respect; (D) reduce the obligations of Tenant under the Lease in any material respect; (E) grant offset rights to Tenant under the Lease; (F) grant to Tenant any options or rights of first refusal in the Premises or the Property; or (G) amend the term of the Lease.
10. Bank Not Obligated. Bank, if it becomes the Purchaser or if it takes possession under the Deed of Trust, and any other Purchaser shall not (a) be liable for any damages or other relief attributable to any act or omission of any prior Landlord under the Lease including Borrower, or (b) be subject to any offset or defense not specifically provided for in the Lease which Tenant may have against any prior landlord under the Lease; or (c) be bound by any prepayment by Tenant of more than one months installment of rent except to the extent that the Lease expressly required such a prepayment and such prepayment was actually delivered or credited to Purchaser; or (d) be obligated for any security deposit not actually delivered or
credited to Purchaser; or (e) other than modifications or amendments contemplated in the Lease, be bound by any modification or amendment of or to the Lease unless the amendment or modification shall have been approved in writing by Bank. The foregoing shall not limit either (i) Tenants right to exercise against Purchaser any damages, relief or offset right or defense otherwise available to Tenant because of events occurring after the Transfer of the Property; or (ii) Purchasers obligation to correct any conditions that existed as of the date of the Transfer of the Property which violate Purchasers obligations as Landlord under the Lease.
11. Tenants Estoppel Certificate.
(a) True and Complete Lease. Tenant represents and warrants to Bank that Exhibit B accurately identifies the Lease and all amendments, supplements, side letters and other agreements and memoranda pertaining to the Lease, the leasehold and/or the Premises.
(b) Tenants Option Rights. Tenant has no right or option of any nature whatsoever, whether arising out of the Lease or otherwise, to purchase the Premises or the Property, or any interest or portion in or of either of them, except as described in the attached Exhibit C.
(c) No Default. As of the date of this Agreement, Tenant represents and warrants that to the best of Tenants knowledge there exist no events of default or events that with notice or the passage of time or both would be events of default under the Lease on either the Tenants part or the Borrowers, nor is there any right of offset against any of Tenants obligations under the Lease, except as described in the attached Exhibit D. Tenant represents and warrants that the Lease is in full force and effect as of the date of this Agreement.
12. Integration; Etc. This Agreement integrates all of the terms and conditions of the parties agreement regarding the subordination of the Lease to the Loan Documents, attornment, nondisturbance and the other matters contained herein. If there is any conflict between the terms, conditions and provisions of this Agreement and those of any other agreement or instrument, including the Lease, the terms, conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall prevail. This Agreement may not be modified or amended except by a written agreement signed by the parties or their respective successors in interest. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is an original but all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument.
13. Notices.

Notices shall be effective upon receipt (or on the date when proper delivery is refused).

Service of any notice on any one Borrower shall be effective service on Borrower for all purposes.

15. WAIVER OF RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY.

A. Landlord and Tenant are parties to that certain Lease entered into as of November 23, 2015, as amended by that certain Storage Space Rental Agreement dated as of July 26, 2017, and that certain First Amendment to Lease, effective as of September 24, 2018 (collectively, the Lease), relating to approximately 13,132 rentable square feet, known as Suite No. 210, and approximately 322 square feet, known as storage space P2N (collectively, the Premises) located within the building commonly known as Emery Station I and located at 5858 Horton Street, Emeryville, California (the Building), all as more particularly described in the Lease.
B. The Lease Term is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2023 (the Stated Expiration Date), and Tenant desires to terminate the Lease prior to the Stated Expiration Date. Landlord has agreed to such termination on the terms and conditions contained in this Termination Agreement.

1. Effective as of the date that Tenant vacates the Premises in compliance with the requirements of Section 12.1 of the Lease (as modified pursuant to Section 4(b) below) (the Early Expiration Date), which date shall be no later than sixty (60) days after the Rent Commencement Date under the ESW Lease (as defined in Section 9 below) (the Outside Early Expiration Date), and subject to the agreements, representations, warranties and indemnities contained in this Termination Agreement, below, the Lease is terminated and the term of the Lease shall expire with the same force and effect as if the Lease Term were, by the provisions thereof, fixed to expire on the Early Expiration Date.
2. Effective as of the Early Expiration Date, Tenant remises, releases, quitclaims and surrenders to Landlord, its successors and assigns, the Lease and all of the estate and rights of Tenant in and to the Lease and the Premises, and Tenant forever releases and discharges Landlord from any obligations to be observed or performed by Landlord under the Lease after the Early Expiration Date.
3. Subject to the agreements, representations, warranties and indemnities contained in this Termination Agreement, Landlord agrees to accept the surrender of the Lease and the Premises from and after the Early Expiration Date and, effective as of the Early Expiration Date, forever releases and discharges Tenant from any obligations to be observed and performed by Tenant under the Lease after the Early Expiration Date, provided that Tenant has satisfied, performed and fulfilled all of the agreements set forth in this Termination Agreement, and each of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 5 below are true and correct.
4. On or prior to the Early Expiration Date, Tenant shall:
(a) Fulfill all covenants and obligations under the Lease applicable to the period prior to and including the Early Expiration Date.
(b) Completely vacate and surrender the Premises to Landlord in accordance with the terms of Section 12.1 of the Lease, except that notwithstanding the terms of such Section 12.1, Tenant shall not be required to remove any Cables. Without limitation, Tenant shall leave the Premises in as clean, good and tenantable condition as existed on the Commencement Date, ordinary wear and tear and damage caused by Landlord excepted, with a post-occupancy study of Hazardous Materials in accordance with the terms and conditions of Section 7.1(d)(10) of the Lease, and free of all movable furniture and equipment, and shall deliver the keys to the Premises to Landlord or Landlords designee. To the extent any Hazardous Materials introduced by Tenant remain in the Premises after the Early Expiration Date, Landlord and Tenant shall remain liable as set forth in the Lease. Tenant shall be deemed to be occupying the Premises on a holdover basis if: (i) any required remediation or removal in compliance with the Lease (as identified in the post-occupancy study identified in Section 7.1 (d)( 10) of the Lease) has not been completed as of the Early Expiration Date; and (ii) the failure to complete such remediation and removal work delays occupancy of the Premises by an incoming tenant.
5. Tenant represents and warrants that (a) Tenant is the rightful owner of all of the Tenants interest in the Lease; (b) Tenant has not made any disposition, assignment, sublease, or conveyance of the Lease or Tenants interest therein; (c) Tenant has no actual knowledge of any fact or circumstance which would give rise to any claim, demand, obligation, liability, action or cause of action arising out of or in connection with Tenants occupancy of the Premises; (d) no other person or entity has an interest in the Lease, collateral or otherwise; and (e) Tenant is not a party to any outstanding contracts for the supply of labor or material and Tenant has not done or is not doing any work in, to or about the Premises which has not been fully paid for and for which Tenant has not obtained appropriate waivers of mechanics liens.

6. Notwithstanding anything in this Termination Agreement to the contrary, Tenant shall remain liable for all adjustments with respect to Tenants Share of Operating Expenses and Taxes for that portion of the calendar year up to and including the Early Expiration Date. Such adjustments shall be paid at the time, in the manner and otherwise in accordance with the terms of the Lease, unless otherwise specified herein; provided, however, Landlord shall make reasonable efforts to provide an estimate of such adjustments as of the Early Expiration Date.
7. Tenant agrees that the terms of the Lease, as modified by this Termination Agreement, are confidential and constitute proprietary information of Landlord, and that disclosure of the terms hereof could adversely affect the ability of Landlord to negotiate with other tenants. Tenant hereby agrees that Tenant and its partners, officers, directors, employees,
agents, real estate brokers and sales persons and attorneys shall not disclose the terms of the Lease, as modified by this Termination Agreement, to any other person without Landlords prior written consent, except (a) to any accountants of Tenant in connection with the preparation of Tenants financial statements or tax returns, (b) to an assignee of the Lease or subtenant of the Premises, (c) to an entity or person to whom disclosure is required by applicable law or in connection with any action brought to enforce the Lease, or (d) public disclosures to the extent required to be made in connection with Tenants obligations as a public company.
8. If Tenant holds over in the Premises beyond the Outside Early Expiration Date, Tenant shall be liable for 150% of the Monthly Base Rent payable under the Lease prior to the Outside Early Expiration Date, and 100% of any increases for Rent Adjustments, as reasonably estimated by Landlord (the Holdover Rent). The Holdover Rent shall be prorated on a per diem basis and on a per square foot basis, from the period commencing with the Outside Expiration Date and ending on the actual Early Expiration Date. Such holdover amount shall not be in limitation of Tenants liability for consequential or other damages arising from Tenants holding over nor shall it be deemed permission for Tenant to holdover in the Premises beyond the Outside Early Expiration Date.
9. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge and agree that this Termination Agreement shall be entered into concurrently with the execution of a lease agreement by and between Emery Station West, LLC, a California limited liability company, and Tenant for space comprising a portion of the third (3rd) floor of the building located at 5959 Horton Street, Emeryville, California (the ESW Lease).
10. This Termination Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Landlord and Tenant and their respective successors, assigns and related entities.
11. This Termination Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California. Each party hereto (which includes any assignee, successor, heir or personal representative of a party) shall not seek a jury trial, hereby waives trial by jury, and hereby further waives any objection to venue in the County in which the Project is located, and agrees and consents to personal jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California, in any action or proceeding or counterclaim brought by any party hereto against the other. The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Termination Agreement.
12. This Termination Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the matters set forth herein. There have been no additional oral or written representations or agreements except as stated herein.
13. Except as herein modified or amended, the provisions, conditions and terms of the Lease shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect.
14. In the case of any inconsistency between the provisions of the Lease and this Termination Agreement, the provisions of this Termination Agreement shall govern and control.
15. Capitalized terms used in this Termination Agreement shall have the same definitions as set forth in the Lease to the extent that such capitalized terms are defined therein and not redefined in this Termination Agreement.
