THE CAMPUS
LEASE
This Lease, which includes the preceding Summary of Basic Lease Information (the “Summary”) attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference (the Lease and Summary to be known sometimes collectively hereafter as the “Lease”), dated as of the date set forth in Section 1 of the Summary, is made by and between THE CAMPUS CARLSBAD, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Landlord”), and MAXLINEAR, INC., a Delaware corporation (“Tenant”).

ARTICLE 1
REAL PROPERTY, PROJECT AND PREMISES
1.1    Real Property, Building and Premises. Upon and subject to the terms, covenants and conditions hereinafter set forth in this Lease, Landlord hereby leases to Tenant and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord the premises set forth in Section 6 of the Summary (the “Premises”), which Premises are located in the “Building,” as that term is defined in the Summary. The outline of the floor plan of the Premises is set forth in Exhibit B attached hereto. The Building, the parking facilities serving the Building (“Parking Facilities”), the outside plaza areas, additional buildings, land and other improvements surrounding the Building which are designated from time to time by Landlord as common areas appurtenant to or servicing the Building, and the land upon which any of the foregoing are situated, are herein sometimes collectively referred to as the “Real Property.” Commencing as of the Lease Commencement Date, Tenant is hereby granted the right to the nonexclusive use of the common electric room located in the Building and the other public or common areas located in the Building and/or on the Real Property (“Common Areas”). Landlord shall maintain the Common Areas in a first-class condition similar to those of other first-class corporate headquarters/research and development buildings in Carlsbad, California; provided, however, that the manner in which such Common Areas are maintained and operated shall be at the sole discretion of Landlord and the use thereof shall be subject to such reasonable and non-discriminatory Rules and Regulations as Landlord may make from time to time. Landlord reserves the right from time to time without notice to Tenant (i) to close temporarily any of the Common Areas; (ii) to make changes to the Common Areas, includig, without limitation, changes in the location, size, shape, driveways, ramps, entrances, exits, passages, stairways and other ingress and egress, direction of traffic, landscaped areas, loading and unloading areas, and walkways; (iii) to expand the Building; (iv) to add improvements to the Common Areas; (v) to delete land and improvements from the Real Property; (vi) to use the Common Areas while engaged in making additional improvements, repairs or alterations to the Building, the Real Property, or any portion thereof; and (vii) to do and perform such other acts and make such other changes in, to or with respect to the Building, the Real Property and Common Areas or the expansion thereof as Landlord may deem to be appropriate; provided, however, in connection with Landlord’s exercise of its rights under this Section 1.1, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with Tenant’s permitted business operations in the Premises, ingress or egress to and from the Premises or the Parking Facilities from the adjacent public streets and/or Tenant’s rights under this Lease.
1.2    Condition of the Premises. Except as specifically set forth in this Lease and in the Tenant Work Letter attached hereto as Exhibit C and incorporated herein by this reference, Landlord shall not be obligated to provide or pay for any improvement work or services related to the improvement of the Premises. Tenant also acknowledges that Landlord has made no representation or warranty regarding the condition of the Premises or the Real Property except as specifically set forth in this Lease and the Tenant Work Letter.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall deliver the Premises to Tenant with the HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems in good working order and with the windows, exterior walls, floors and roof in leak-free condition. If, upon Landlord's delivery of the Premises to Tenant, such systems are not in good working order and/or such items are not in leak-free condition, and Tenant notifies Landlord of the same within thirty (30) days of Landlord's delivery of the Premises, Landlord shall, at Landlord's sole cost and expense and as Tenant's sole remedy therefor, promptly put such systems in good working order and/or cause such items to be in leak-free condition. Landlord, at its sole cost and expense, shall maintain, repair and replace the structural elements of the Building.
1.3    Square Feet of Premises. The parties hereby confirm, stipulate and agree that (i) the square footage of the Premises shall mean the amount set forth in Section 6 of the Summary, and (ii) such square footage amount is not subject to adjustment or remeasurement by Landlord or Tenant for purposes of this Lease.
1.4    Continuing Right of First Refusal. Landlord hereby grants to the Original Tenant (as defined in Section 2.2 below) and any Affiliated Assignee, during the initial Lease Term only, a right of first refusal with respect to (i) any contiguous space in the Building, as further outlined on Exhibit A attached hereto and made a part hereof, and/or (ii) any space containing a minimum of 5,000 square feet of space (or rentable square feet of space, as applicable) in either of the other two (2) buildings on the Real Property (collectively, the “First Refusal Space”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) such first refusal right shall commence only following the expiration or earlier termination of (A) any lease pertaining to the First Refusal Space existing as of the date of this Lease, and (B) as to any First Refusal

P:00816539-5:12107.019         
        



Space which is vacant as of the date of this Lease, the first lease pertaining to any portion of such First Refusal Space entered into by Landlord after the date of this Lease (collectively, the “Superior Leases”), including any renewal or extension of such existing or future lease, whether or not such renewal or extension is pursuant to an express written provision in such lease, and regardless of whether any such renewal or extension is consummated pursuant to a lease amendment or a new lease, and (ii) such first refusal right shall be subordinate and secondary to all rights of expansion, first refusal, first offer or similar rights granted to the tenant(s) of the Superior Leases or any other leases in existence as of the date of this Lease (the rights described in items (i) and (ii), above to be known collectively, for purposes of this Section 1.4 only, as “Superior Rights”). Tenant’s right of first refusal shall be on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 1.4.
1.4.1    Procedure. Landlord shall notify Tenant (the “First Refusal Notice”) from time to time when Landlord receives a letter of intent that Landlord would consider for all or any portion of the First Refusal Space, where no holder of a Superior Right desires to lease such space; provided, however, Landlord may deliver the First Refusal Notice to Tenant concurrent with Landlord’s delivery of a similar notice to the holder(s) of a Superior Right(s), in which case Tenant’s ability to exercise its right of first refusal with respect to the space described in the First Refusal Notice shall be conditioned upon all holders of Superior Rights electing (or being deemed to have elected) not to lease such space. The First Refusal Notice shall describe the space which is the subject of the proposal (which may include space outside of the First Refusal Space) and shall set forth the terms and conditions (including the proposed lease term) set forth in the proposal (collectively, the “Terms”) and shall include a redacted copy of the letter of intent giving rise to the delivery of the First Refusal Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord’s obligation to deliver the First Refusal Notice shall not apply during the last twenty-four (24) months of the initial Lease Term unless Tenant has delivered an Interest Notice pursuant to Section 2.2.2 of this Lease nor during the period following Landlord’s delivery of the Option Rent Notice to Tenant pursuant to Section 2.2.2 unless and until Tenant has delivered to Landlord the Option Notice pursuant to Section 2.2.2. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Tenant may only exercise its right of first refusal with respect to all of the space described in the First Refusal Notice, and not a portion thereof.
1.4.2    Procedure for Acceptance. If Tenant wishes to exercise Tenant’s right of first refusal with respect to the space described in the First Refusal Notice, then within five (5) business days after delivery of the First Refusal Notice to Tenant (the “Election Date”), Tenant shall deliver written notice to Landlord (“Tenant’s Election Notice”) pursuant to which Tenant shall elect either to (i) lease the entire space described in the First Refusal Notice upon the Terms set forth in the First Refusal Notice or (ii) refuse to lease such space identified in the First Refusal Notice, in which event Landlord may lease such space to any person or entity on any terms Landlord desires. If Tenant does not so respond in writing to Landlord’s First Refusal Notice by the Election Date, Tenant shall be deemed to have elected the option described in clause (ii) above and Landlord shall be free to lease the space described in the First Refusal Notice to anyone to whom Landlord desires and Tenant’s right of first refusal shall terminate as to the space described in the First Refusal Notice, subject to the Second Chance Notice provisions set forth below and the provisions of Section 1.4.4 below. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if after Tenant elects (or is deemed to have elected) to proceed under subsection (ii) above in response to any particular First Refusal Notice, Landlord intends to enter into a lease upon Terms which are materially more favorable to a third (3rd) party tenant than the Terms set forth in such First Refusal Notice, Landlord shall first deliver written notice to Tenant (“Second Chance Notice”) providing Tenant with the opportunity to lease the space described in the First Refusal Notice on such materially more favorable Terms. Tenant’s failure to elect to lease the space described in the First Refusal Notice upon such materially more favorable Terms by written notice to Landlord within three (3) business days after Tenant’s receipt of such Second Chance Notice from Landlord shall be deemed to constitute Tenant’s election not to lease such space upon such materially more favorable Terms, in which case Landlord shall be entitled to lease such space to any third (3rd) party on Terms not materially more favorable to the third (3rd) party than those set forth in the Second Chance Notice. For purposes of this Section 1.4.2, the Terms shall be considered "materially more favorable" if the financial terms or the size of the space described in the First Refusal Notice change in Tenant’s favor by more than five percent (5%).
1.4.3    Lease of First Refusal Space. If Tenant timely exercises Tenant’s right to lease the space described in the First Refusal Notice as set forth herein, Landlord and Tenant shall execute an amendment to this Lease incorporating into this Lease the Terms applicable to such space.
1.4.4    Termination of Right of First Refusal. Subject to the terms of this Section 1.4, the right of first refusal granted herein shall terminate as to a particular First Refusal Space upon the failure by Tenant to exercise its right of first refusal with respect to such First Refusal Space as offered by Landlord but shall remain in effect for any subsequent availability of all or any portion of the remaining First Refusal Space; provided, however, that if after Tenant’s failure to exercise the right of first refusal as to a particular First Refusal Space Landlord leases such space, then upon the expiration of the term of such lease Tenant’s right of first refusal shall again apply to such space, subject, however to the Superior Rights and the prior right of the tenant under such lease to renew the term thereof, regardless of whether such renewal is pursuant to an express provision in such lease or pursuant to a lease amendment or new lease. Landlord shall not have any obligation to deliver the First Refusal Notice if, as of the date Landlord would otherwise deliver the First Refusal Notice to Tenant, Tenant is in default under this Lease after any applicable notice and cure periods, Tenant or an Affiliate does not physically occupy the entire Premises, if any portion of the Premises is subject to a sublease (other than to an Affiliate), if this Lease has been assigned (other than to an Affiliate), or if any portion of the Premises has been recaptured pursuant to Section 14.4 of this Lease. In addition, at Landlord’s option, if Tenant has previously delivered Tenant’s Election Notice in accordance with Section 1.4.2 and, as of the scheduled date of delivery of such First Refusal Space to Tenant, Tenant is in default under this Lease after any applicable notice

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -2-    
        



and cure periods, Tenant or an Affiliate does not physically occupy the entire Premises, if any portion of the Premises is subject to a sublease (other than to an Affiliate), if this Lease has been assigned (other than to an Affiliate), or if any .


ARTICLE 2
LEASE TERM
2.1    Initial Term. The terms and provisions of this Lease shall be effective as of the date of this Lease except for the provisions of this Lease relating to the payment of Rent and Tenant’s maintenance of insurance. The term of this Lease (the “Lease Term”) shall be as set forth in Section 7.1 of the Summary and shall commence on the Lease Commencement Date set forth in Section 7.2 of the Summary (subject, however, to the terms of the Tenant Work Letter), and shall terminate on the Lease Expiration Date set forth in Section 7.3 of the Summary, unless this Lease is sooner terminated as hereinafter provided. For purposes of this Lease, the term “Lease Year” shall mean each consecutive twelve (12) month period during the Lease Term; provided, however, that the first (1st) Lease Year shall commence on the Lease Commencement Date and end on the last day of the eleventh (11th) full calendar month thereafter (unless the Lease Commencement Date occurs on the first (1st) day of a calendar month, in which event the first (1st) Lease Year shall end on the day immediately preceding the 1st anniversary of such date), and the second (2nd) and each succeeding Lease Year shall commence on the first day of the next calendar month; and further provided that the last Lease Year shall end on the Lease Expiration Date. At any time during the Lease Term, Landlord may deliver to Tenant a notice of Lease Term dates in the form as set forth in Exhibit D, attached hereto, which notice Tenant shall execute and return to Landlord within ten (10) business days of receipt thereof.
2.2    Option Term. Landlord hereby grants to the original Tenant named in this Lease (the “Original Tenant”) or an Affiliated Assignee (as defined in Section 14.7) one (1) option to extend the Lease Term for a period of five (5) years (the “Option Term”), which option shall be exercisable only by written notice (“Option Notice”) delivered by Tenant to Landlord as provided in Section 2.2.2 below, provided that, (i) as of the date of delivery of such notice and, at Landlord’s option, as of the last day of the initial Lease Term, Tenant is not in default under this Lease after the expiration of applicable cure periods. The rights contained in this Section 2.2 shall be personal to the Original Tenant or an Affiliated Assignee and may only be exercised by the Original Tenant or such Affiliated Assignee (and not any other assignee, sublessee or other transferee of the Original Tenant’s interest in this Lease) if the Original Tenant or the Affiliated Assignee occupies the entire Premises as of the date of the Option Notice.

2.2.2    Exercise of Option. The option contained in this Section 2.2 shall be exercised by Tenant, if at all, only in the following manner: (i) Tenant shall deliver written notice (“Interest Notice”) to Landlord on or before the date which is not more than twelve (12) months nor less than nine (9) prior to the expiration of the initial Lease Term, stating that Tenant is interested in exercising its option; (ii) Landlord, after receipt of Tenant’s notice, shall deliver notice (the “Option Rent Notice”) to Tenant not less than eight (8) months prior to the expiration of the initial Lease Term, setting forth the proposed Option Rent; and (iii) if Tenant wishes to exercise such option, Tenant shall, on or before the earlier of (A) the date occurring seven (7) months prior to the expiration of the initial Lease Term, and (B) the date occurring thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of the Option Rent Notice, exercise the option by delivering the Option Notice to Landlord and upon and concurrent with such exercise, Tenant may, at its option, object to the Option Rent contained in the Option Rent Notice. Failure of Tenant to deliver the Interest Notice to Landlord on or before the date specified in (i) above or to deliver the Option Notice to Landlord on or before the date specified in (iii) above shall be deemed to constitute Tenant’s failure to exercise its option to extend. If Tenant timely and properly exercises its option to extend, the Lease Term shall be extended for the Option Term upon all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease, except that the Rent shall be as indicated in the Option Rent Notice unless Tenant, concurrently with Tenant’s acceptance, objects to the Option Rent contained in the Option Rent Notice, in which case the parties shall follow the procedure and the Option Rent shall be determined as set forth in Section 2.2.3 below.
2.2.3.1    Landlord and Tenant shall each appoint, within ten (10) days of the Outside Agreement Date, one arbitrator who shall by profession be a current real estate broker or appraiser of comparable commercial properties in the vicinity of the Building, and who has been active in such field over the last five (5) years. The determination of the arbitrators shall be limited solely to the issue of whether Landlord’s or Tenant’s submitted Option Rent is the closest to the actual Option Rent as determined by the arbitrators, taking into account the requirements of Section 2.2.1, above (i.e., the arbitrators may only select Landlord’s or Tenant’s determination of Option Rent and shall not be entitled to make a compromise determination).
2.2.3.2    The two (2) arbitrators so appointed shall within five (5) business days of the date of the appointment of the last appointed arbitrator agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator who shall be qualified under the same criteria set forth hereinabove for qualification of the initial two (2) arbitrators.

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -3-    
        



2.2.3.3    The three (3) arbitrators shall within fifteen (15) days of the appointment of the third arbitrator reach a decision as to whether the parties shall use Landlord’s or Tenant’s submitted Option Rent, and shall notify Landlord and Tenant thereof.
2.2.3.4    The decision of the majority of the three (3) arbitrators shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant.
2.2.3.6    If the two (2) arbitrators fail to agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator, or both parties fail to appoint an arbitrator, then the appointment of the third arbitrator or any arbitrator shall be dismissed and the matter to be decided shall be forthwith submitted to arbitration under the provisions of the American Arbitration Association, but subject to the instructions set forth in this Section 2.2.3.
2.2.3.7    The cost of arbitration shall be paid by the party whose determination of Option Rent is not selected by the arbitrators.

ARTICLE 3
BASE RENT
3.1    Base Rent. Tenant shall pay, without notice or demand, to Landlord or Landlord’s agent at the management office of the Building, or at such other place as Landlord may from time to time designate in writing, in currency or a check for currency which, at the time of payment, is legal tender for private or public debts in the United States of America, base rent (“Base Rent”) as set forth in Section 8 of the Summary, payable in equal monthly installments as set forth in Section 8 of the Summary in advance on or before the first (1st) day of each and every month during the Lease Term, without any setoff or deduction whatsoever, except as otherwise expressly provided herein. The Base Rent for the first (1st) full month of the Lease Term shall be paid at the time of Tenant’s execution of this Lease. If any rental payment date (including the Lease Commencement Date) falls on a day of the month other than the first (1st) day of such month or if any rental payment is for a period which is shorter than one month, then the rental for any such fractional month shall be a proportionate amount of a full calendar month’s rental based on the proportion that the number of days in such fractional month bears to the number of days in the calendar month during which such fractional month occurs. All other payments or adjustments required to be made under the terms of this Lease that require proration on a time basis shall be prorated on the same basis.
3.2    Abatement of Base Rent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein and provided that Tenant is not in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period, Landlord hereby agrees to abate fifty percent (50%) of Tenant’s obligation to pay monthly Base Rent for the second (2nd) through thirteenth (13th) full calendar months of the initial Lease Term. During such abatement periods, Tenant shall still be responsible for the payment of all of its other monetary obligations under this Lease including, without limitation, Tenant’s obligation to pay Tenant’s Share of Direct Expenses and for utilities for the Premises pursuant to Article 6 below. In the event of a default by Tenant under the terms of this Lease that results in the early termination of this Lease pursuant to the provisions of Section 19.2 of this Lease, then as a part of the recovery set forth in Section 19.2 of this Lease, Landlord shall be entitled to recover the unamortized balance, as of the date of such termination of this Lease, of the monthly Base Rent that were abated under the provisions of this Section 3.2. Amortization pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence shall be calculated on a straight-line basis, based on a sixty-six (66) month amortization schedule commencing as of the Lease Commencement Date.

If Landlord is not furnishing any particular work or service (the cost of which, if performed by Landlord, would be included in Operating Expenses) to a tenant who has undertaken to perform such work or service in lieu of the performance thereof by Landlord, Operating Expenses shall be deemed to be increased by an amount equal to the additional Operating Expenses which would reasonably have been incurred during such period by Landlord if it had at its own expense furnished such work or service to such tenant.

It is understood that Operating Expenses shall be reduced by all cash discounts, trade discounts, or quantity discounts received by Landlord or Landlord’s managing agent in the purchase of any goods, utilities, or services in connection with the operation of the Building or Real Property.
Landlord agrees that (i) Landlord will not collect or be entitled to collect Operating Expenses from all of its tenants in an amount which is in excess of one hundred percent (100%) of the Operating Expenses actually accrued or paid by Landlord for any given Expense Year in connection with the operation of the Building and Real Property, and (ii) Landlord shall make no profit from Landlord's collection of Operating Expenses.

4.2.7.1    Tax Expenses shall include, without limitation, but subject to Paragraph 4.2.7.5 below:
(i)    Any tax on Landlord’s rent, right to rent or other income from the Real Property or as against Landlord’s business of leasing any of the Real Property;
(ii)    Any assessment, tax, fee, levy or charge in addition to, or in substitution, partially or totally, of any assessment, tax, fee, levy or charge previously included within the definition of real property tax, it being acknowledged by Tenant and Landlord that Proposition 13 was adopted by the voters of the State of California in the June 1978 election (“Proposition 13”) and that assessments, taxes, fees, levies and charges may be imposed by governmental agencies for such services as fire protection, street, sidewalk and road maintenance, refuse removal and for other governmental services formerly provided without charge to property owners or occupants.

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -7-    
        



(iv)    Any assessment, tax, fee, levy or charge, upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party, creating or transferring an interest or an estate in the Premises.
4.2.7.2    Intentionally Omitted.
4.2.7.3    Any expenses reasonably incurred in attempting to protest, reduce or minimize Tax Expenses shall be included in Tax Expenses in the Expense Year such expenses are paid. Tax refunds shall be deducted from Tax Expenses in the Expense Year they are received.
4.2.7.4    Subject to the provisions of Section 4.6 below, if Tax Expenses for any period during the Lease Term or any extension thereof are increased after payment thereof by Landlord for any reason, including, without limitation, error or reassessment by applicable governmental or municipal authorities, Tenant shall pay Landlord within ten (10) business days after written demand therefor, along with a copy of the applicable tax bills, Tenant’s Share of such increased Tax Expenses.
4.2.7.5    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 4.2.7, there shall be excluded from Tax Expenses (i) all franchise taxes, gift taxes, capital stock taxes, inheritance and succession taxes, estate taxes, federal and state income taxes, and other taxes to the extent applicable to Landlord’s general or net income (as opposed to rents, receipts or income attributable to the Building), (ii) any items included as Operating Expenses, and (iii) any items paid by Tenant under Section 4.4 of this Lease.
4.2.8    Tenant’s Share” shall mean the percentage set forth in Section 9.2 of the Summary. Tenant’s Share was calculated by dividing the square footage of the Premises by the total square footage of the Building. In the event the total square footage of the Building is changed, Tenant’s Share shall be appropriately adjusted, and, as to the Expense Year in which such change occurs, Tenant’s Share for such year shall be determined on the basis of the number of days during such Expense Year that each such Tenant’s Share was in effect.
4.2.9    Intentionally Omitted.
4.2.10    Equitable Allocation. In the event any land, improvements, facilities, services or utilities surrounding, servicing or otherwise used in connection with the Real Property are a part of, provided from or service another property owned or operated by Landlord or vice versa, the costs incurred by Landlord in connection therewith shall be allocated to Direct Expenses by Landlord on a reasonably equitable basis.
4.3    Calculation and Payment of Additional Rent.
4.3.1    Calculation of Tenant’s Share. For each Expense Year ending or commencing within the Lease Term, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, in the manner set forth in Section 4.3.2, below, and as Additional Rent, an amount equal to Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and/or Tax Expenses.
4.3.2    Statement of Actual Expenses and Payment by Tenant. Landlord shall endeavor to give to Tenant on or before the first (1st) day of April following the end of each Expense Year, a statement (the “Statement”) which shall state the Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and Tax Expenses incurred or accrued for such preceding Expense Year. Within ten (10) business days after receipt of the Statement for each Expense Year ending during the Lease Term, Tenant shall pay, with its next installment of Base Rent due, the full amount thereof, less the amounts, if any, paid during such Expense Year as the Estimate. The failure of Landlord to timely furnish the Statement for any Expense Year shall not prejudice Landlord from enforcing its rights under this Article 4 for a period of one (1) year after the expiration of the calendar year for which the Statement applies and after such one (1) year period Landlord waives its right to recover all or any portion of Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and Tax Expenses, except where the failure to timely furnish the Statement as to any particular item includable in the Statement is beyond Landlord’s reasonable control (e.g., tax assessments that are late in arriving from the assessor), in which case such one (1) year limit and the commensurate waiver shall not be applicable. Even though the Lease Term has expired and Tenant has vacated the Premises, when the final determination is made of Tenant’s Share of the Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and Tax Expenses for the Expense Year in which this Lease terminates, Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days after invoice, pay to Landlord an amount as calculated pursuant to the provisions of Section 4.3.1 of this Lease. The provisions of this Section 4.3.2 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease Term.
4.3.3    Statement of Estimated Expenses. In addition, Landlord shall endeavor to give Tenant a yearly expense estimate statement (the “Estimate Statement”) which shall set forth Landlord’s reasonable estimate (the “Estimate”) of what the total amount of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and Tax Expenses for the then-current Expense Year shall be. The failure of Landlord to timely furnish the Estimate Statement for any Expense Year shall not preclude Landlord from enforcing its rights to collect all or any portion of the Estimate under this Article 4. Tenant shall pay, with its next installment of Base Rent due, but not earlier than ten (10) business days after written notice thereof, a fraction of the Estimate for the then-current Expense Year (reduced by any amounts paid pursuant to the last sentence of this Section 4.3.3). Such fraction shall have as its numerator the number of months which have elapsed in such current Expense Year to the month of such payment, both months inclusive, and shall have twelve (12) as its denominator. Until a new Estimate Statement is furnished, Tenant shall pay monthly, with the monthly Base

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -8-    
        



Rent installments, an amount equal to one-twelfth (1/12) of the total Estimate set forth in the previous Estimate Statement delivered by Landlord to Tenant.
4.4    Taxes and Other Charges for Which Tenant Is Directly Responsible. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord within ten (10) business days after written demand therefor, along with copies of all applicable tax bills for any and all taxes or assessments required to be paid by Landlord (except to the extent specifically excluded from the definition of Tax Expenses in Section 4.2.7 above), excluding state, local and federal personal or corporate income taxes and estate and inheritance taxes, whether or not now customary or within the contemplation of the parties hereto, when:
4.4.1    Said taxes are measured by or reasonably attributable to the cost or value of Tenant’s equipment, furniture, fixtures and other personal property located in the Premises, or by the cost or value of any leasehold improvements made in or to the Premises by or for Tenant, to the extent the cost or value of such leasehold improvements exceeds the cost or value of a Building standard build-out (it being agreed by Landlord and Tenant that the value of Building standard improvements shall be Forty-Five and No/100 Dollars ($45.00) per square foot) regardless of whether title to such improvements shall be vested in Tenant or Landlord);
4.4.2    Said taxes are assessed upon or with respect to the possession, leasing, operation, management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use or occupancy by Tenant of the Premises or any portion of the Real Property (including the Parking Facilities);
4.4.3    Said taxes are assessed upon this transaction or any document to which Tenant is a party creating or transferring an interest or an estate in the Premises; or
4.4.4    Said assessments are levied or assessed upon the Real Property or any part thereof or upon Landlord and/or by any governmental authority or entity, and relate to the construction, operation, management, use, alteration or repair of mass transit improvements.
4.5    Landlord’s Books and Records. Within three (3) months after receipt of a Statement by Tenant (“Review Period”), if Tenant (in good faith) disputes the amount of Additional Rent set forth in the Statement, Tenant’s employees or an independent certified public accountant (which accountant (i) shall have been in business for at least five (5) years; (ii) shall be reputable; and (iii) shall be hired by Tenant on a non-contingency fee basis), designated by Tenant, may, after not less than ten (10) days prior written notice to Landlord and during Landlord’s normal business hours only, inspect Landlord’s records at Landlord’s offices, provided that Tenant is not then in default after expiration of all applicable cure periods of any obligation under this Lease (including, but not limited to, the payment of the amount in dispute) and provided further that Tenant and such accountant or representative shall, and each of them shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to cause their respective agents and employees to, maintain all information contained in Landlord’s records in strict confidence. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall only have the right to review Landlord’s records one (1) time during any twelve (12) month period. Tenant’s failure to dispute the amounts set forth in any Statement within the Review Period shall be deemed to be Tenant’s approval of such Statement and Tenant, thereafter, waives the right or ability to dispute the amounts set forth in such Statement. If after such inspection, but within forty-five (45) days after the Review Period, Tenant notifies Landlord in writing that Tenant still disputes such Additional Rent, a certification as to the proper amount shall be made, at Tenant’s expense, by an independent certified public accountant selected by Landlord and who (a) is a member of a nationally or regionally recognized accounting firm and (b) shall not be providing accounting services to Landlord and shall not have provided accounting services to Landlord in the past five (5) years, which certification shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. Landlord shall cooperate in good faith with Tenant and the accountant to show Tenant and the accountant the information upon which the certification is to be based. However, if such certification by the accountant proves that the total amount of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and Tax Expenses set forth in the Statement were overstated by more than five percent (5%), then the cost of the accountant and the cost of such certification shall be paid for by Landlord. Promptly following the parties receipt of such certification, the parties shall make such appropriate payments or reimbursements, as the case may be, to each other, as are determined to be owing pursuant to such certification. Tenant agrees that this section shall be the sole method to be used by Tenant to dispute the amount of any Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and Tax Expenses payable by Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Lease, and Tenant hereby waives any other rights at law or in equity relating thereto.
4.6    Proposition 13 Protection. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, in the event that, at any time during the initial Lease Term, any sale, refinancing, or change in ownership of the Real Property is consummated, and as a result thereof, and to the extent that in connection therewith, the Real Property is reassessed (the “Reassessment”) for real estate tax purposes by the appropriate governmental authority pursuant to the terms of Proposition 13, then the following provisions shall apply to such Reassessment of the Real Property.
4.6.1    For purposes of this Section 4.6, the term “Tax Increase” shall mean that portion of the Tax Expenses, as calculated immediately following the Reassessment, which is attributable solely to the Reassessment. Accordingly, the term Tax Increase shall not include any portion of the Tax Expenses, as calculated immediately following the Reassessment, which (i) is attributable to the initial assessment of the value of the Real Property, the Base, Shell and Core or the tenant improvements located in the Real Property, (ii) is attributable to assessments which were pending immediately prior to the Reassessment which assessments were conducted during, and included in, such Reassessment, or which assessments were otherwise rendered unnecessary following the Reassessment, or (iii) is attributable to the annual inflationary increase of real estate taxes permitted to be assessed annually under Proposition

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -9-    
        



13. During the initial Lease Term, any Tax Increase shall be excluded from Tax Expenses. After the initial Lease Term, any Tax Increase shall be included in Tax Expenses.
4.6.2    The amount of Tax Expenses which Tenant is not obligated to pay or will not be obligated to pay during the initial Lease Term in connection with a particular Reassessment pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.6, shall be sometimes referred to hereafter as a “Proposition 13 Protection Amount.” If the Proposition 13 Protection Amount attributable to such Reassessment can be reasonably quantified or estimated for each Lease Year commencing with the Lease Year in which the Reassessment will occur, the terms of this Section 4.6.2 shall apply to each such Reassessment (and if it cannot, such terms shall apply as soon as can be reasonably quantified or estimated). Upon notice to Tenant, Landlord shall have the right to purchase the Proposition 13 Protection Amount relating to the applicable Reassessment (the “Applicable Reassessment”), at any time during the Lease Term, by either (a) paying to Tenant an amount equal to the Proposition 13 Purchase Price, as that term is defined below, or (b) paying to the successor Landlord an amount equal to the Proposition 13 Purchase Price, which shall then be paid by such successor Landlord to Tenant in equal annual installments over the remainder of the Lease Term. As used herein, “Proposition 13 Purchase Price” shall mean the present value of the Proposition 13 Protection Amount remaining during the Lease Term, as of the date of payment of the Proposition 13 Purchase Price by Landlord. Such present value shall be calculated (i) by using the portion of the Proposition 13 Protection Amount attributable to each remaining Lease Year (as though the portion of such Proposition 13 Protection Amount benefited Tenant at the end of each Lease Year), as the amounts to be discounted, and (ii) by using discount rates for each amount to be discounted equal to eight percent (8%) per annum. Upon such payment of the Proposition 13 Purchase Price, the provisions of Section 4.2.6 of this Lease shall not apply to any Tax Increase attributable to the Applicable Reassessment. Since Landlord is estimating the Proposition 13 Purchase Price because a Reassessment has not yet occurred, then when such Reassessment occurs, if Landlord has underestimated the Proposition 13 Purchase Price, then upon notice by Landlord to Tenant, Tenant’s Base Rent next due shall be credited with the amount of such underestimation, and if Landlord overestimates the Proposition 13 Purchase Price, then upon notice by Landlord to Tenant, Base Rent next due shall be increased by the amount of the overestimation.

ARTICLE 5
USE OF PREMISES
5.1    Permitted Use. Tenant shall use the Premises solely for general office use, general laboratory use for testing of integrated circuits in compliance with all applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations, research and development, manufacturing and warehousing and/or other related ancillary uses consistent with the Building’s zoning and the character of the uses then being used in Comparable Projects, subject to Landlord’s approval of such uses (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) and Tenant shall not use or permit the Premises to be used for any other purpose or purposes whatsoever. As used in this Lease, the term “Comparable Projects” shall mean and refer to comparable first-class corporate headquarters/research and development buildings located in the Carlsbad submarket of San Diego.
5.2    Prohibited Uses. Tenant further covenants and agrees that it shall not use, or knowingly suffer or permit any person or persons to use the Premises, the Parking Facilities or any other Common Areas or any part thereof for any use or purpose contrary to the provisions of Exhibit E attached hereto (“Rules and Regulations”), or in violation of the CC&R’s, the laws of the United States of America, the State of California, codes, ordinances, rules and regulations and requirements of any fire insurance underwriters or rating bureaus, now in effect or which may hereafter come into effect, or the ordinances, regulations or requirements of the local municipal or county governing body or other lawful authorities having jurisdiction over the Building including, without limitation, any such laws, ordinances, regulations or requirements relating to “Hazardous Material”, as that term is defined in Section 5.3 below, as the same may affect the Premises, Parking Facilities or any other Common Areas at any time during the term of the Lease. Tenant shall comply with all CC&R’s and the provisions of all superior ground or underlying leases now or hereafter affecting the Real Property and Landlord shall provide a copy of any such documents upon Tenant’s request. Tenant shall not use or permit the use of the Premises in a manner that is unlawful, creates damage, waste or a nuisance, or that disturbs owners and/or occupants of, or causes damage to the Building, the Real Property or neighboring properties. Tenant shall indemnify, protect, defend and forever hold Landlord harmless from any and all damages, losses, expenses, liabilities, obligations and costs arising out of any failure of Tenant to observe or perform any of the covenants, conditions or provisions contained in this Section 5.2. The provisions of Section 5.2 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
5.3    Hazardous Material. As used herein, the term “Hazardous Material” means any hazardous or toxic substance, material or waste which is or becomes regulated by, or is dealt with in, any local governmental authority, the State of California or the United States Government. Accordingly, the term “Hazardous Material” includes, without limitation, any material or substance which is (i) defined as a “hazardous waste,” “extremely hazardous waste” or “restricted hazardous waste” under Sections 25115, 25117 or 25122.7, or listed pursuant to Section 25140 of the California Health and Safety Code, Division 20, Chapter 6.5 (Hazardous Waste Control Law), (ii) defined as a “hazardous substance” under Section 25316 of the California Health and Safety Code, Division 20, Chapter 6.95 (Hazardous Materials Release Response Plans and Inventory), (iii) defined as a “hazardous substance” under Section 25281 of the California Health and Safety Code, Division 20, Chapter 6.7 (Underground Storage of Hazardous Substances), (iv) petroleum, (v) asbestos, (vi) listed under Article 9 or defined as hazardous or extremely hazardous pursuant to Article 11 of Title 22 of the California Administrative Code, Division 4, Chapter 20, (vii) designated as a

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -10-    
        



“hazardous substance” pursuant to Section 311 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1317), (viii) defined as a “hazardous waste” pursuant to Section 1004 of the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, 42 U.S.C. § 6902 et seq. (42 U.S.C. § 6903), or (ix) defined as a “hazardous substance” pursuant to Section 101 of the Compensation and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. § 9601 et seq. (42 U.S.C. § 9601). Tenant shall not (either with or without negligence) cause or permit the escape, disposal or release of any Hazardous Materials. Tenant shall not allow the storage or use of Hazardous Materials nor allow to be brought into the Building and/or the Real Property any such materials or substances, except that Tenant may maintain reasonable amounts of products in the Premises which are incidental to the operation of its offices, such as photocopy supplies, secretarial supplies and limited janitorial supplies which products contain chemicals which are categorized as Hazardous Materials, provided that the use of such products in the Premises by Tenant shall be in compliance with applicable laws and shall be in the manner in which such products are designed to be used. If any lender or governmental agency shall ever require testing to ascertain whether or not there has been any release of Hazardous Materials, then the reasonable cost thereof shall be reimbursed by Tenant to Landlord within ten (10) business days after written demand as Additional Rent if a release in excess of legally permissible quantities has occurred due to the acts of Tenant or its employees, agents, invitees or contractors. In addition, Tenant shall execute commercially reasonable affidavits, representations and the like from time to time at Landlord’s request concerning Tenant’s best knowledge and belief (without investigation) regarding the presence of Hazardous Materials on the Premises. In all events, Tenant shall indemnify Landlord in the manner provided in Section 10.1 below from any release of Hazardous Materials on the Premises by Tenant, its agents, employees, invitees or contractors, occurring while Tenant is in possession, or elsewhere if caused by Tenant or persons acting under Tenant. The covenants of this Section 5.3 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease Term.
Landlord hereby represents that to Landlord’s current actual knowledge, without investigation, there are no Hazardous Materials present in the Premises, including, without limitation, asbestos containing materials, in violation of applicable laws as of the date hereof, and Landlord shall, at its sole cost and expense and as Tenant’s sole remedy, correct any breach of such representation promptly following receipt of written notice thereof from Tenant.

ARTICLE 6
SERVICES AND UTILITIES
6.1    Intentionally Omitted.
6.2    Utility Services. The Premises shall be separately metered for electricity as part of the Tenant Improvements. Thereafter, Tenant shall be solely responsible for contracting with the appropriate utility companies to obtain electrical service and shall promptly pay all charges (including hook-up and impact fees) for electricity used, consumed or provided in, furnished to or attributable to the Premises at the rates charged by the supplying utility companies and, connection with Landlord’s energy usage disclosure requirements under California law, (A) Tenant hereby authorizes Landlord to obtain information regarding Tenant's utility and energy usage at the Premises directly from the applicable utility providers and Tenant shall execute, within ten (10) days of Landlord's request, any commercially reasonable additional documentation required by any applicable utility provider evidencing such authorization, (B) within ten (10) days of Landlord's request, Tenant shall provide to Landlord all commercially reasonable requested information regarding Tenant's utility and energy usage at the Premises, and (C) within ten (10) days after the written request of Landlord following the close of each calendar quarter during the Lease Term, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord copies of its electricity bills for the immediately preceding three (3) month period. Should Landlord elect to supply any or all of such utilities (and the parties acknowledge that Landlord will supply water and gas service to the Premises), Tenant agrees to purchase and pay for the same as Additional Rent as apportioned by Landlord. The rate to be charged by Landlord to Tenant shall not exceed the rate charged to Landlord by any supplying utility. Landlord will notify Tenant of this charge promptly after it becomes known. This charge will increase or decrease with current charges being levied against Landlord, the Premises or the Real Property by the local utility company, and will be due as Additional Rent. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord within ten (10) business days of billing for fixture charges and/or water tariffs, if applicable, which are charged to Landlord by local utility companies or, at Landlord’s option, such charges shall be included in Operating Expenses. Additionally, Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, beginning after the date it opens for business from the Premises, provide janitorial services to the Premises at least five (5) days per week (but not on any weekends or state or federal holidays); however, Landlord shall have the right (i) to approve Tenant’s janitorial contractor (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), and (ii) if Tenant fails to provide such janitorial services to the Premises within ten (10) business days after written demand by Landlord, to provide such janitorial services for Tenant’s benefit and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for its costs incurred to provide such janitorial services within ten (10) business days after receipt of Landlord’s invoice therefor, along with a copy of the invoice from the janitorial service provider.
6.3    HVAC System. Subject to the second (2nd) paragraph of Section 1.2 above, Landlord shall provide the existing equipment servicing the Premises in its “as is” condition in order to provide electric current, heat and air-conditioning therein. Landlord and Tenant hereby acknowledge that an independent heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system (“HVAC System”) will service the Premises. Landlord shall perform the maintenance and repair of the HVAC System for the account of Tenant. Tenant shall pay the cost of the maintenance contract for the HVAC System in the Premises, as well as for costs of repair, maintenance and reasonable wear and tear thereof as necessary in the reasonable judgment of Landlord, and a charge equal to $15.00 per hour, per unit for each hour outside of the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays that Tenant runs the HVAC System, all as Additional Rent, within ten (10) business days of receipt of billing therefor from Landlord.

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -11-    
        



Alternatively, Landlord may, at its option, elect to have the HVAC System in the Premises maintained and repaired in common with other equipment in the Building. In such event, within ten (10) business days after receipt of billings therefor and as Additional Rent, Tenant shall pay its pro rata share of such maintenance and repair costs, which share shall be established in an equitable manner by Landlord based upon the relative tonnage provided to the Premises, compared to the total tonnage under contract, or some other reasonable and consistently applied means of allocation as selected by Landlord. Included in the charges to be allocated to Tenant shall be, without limitation, the maintenance contract for the HVAC System, any repairs and replacements not covered by the maintenance contract or any warranty or insurance, and reasonable and wear tear. Landlord shall have the option to have Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, arrange for the maintenance contract for the HVAC System by a company reasonably approved by Landlord.
6.4    Interruption of Use. Subject to the provisions of Section 6.7 below, Tenant agrees that Landlord shall not be liable for damages, by abatement of Rent or otherwise, for failure to furnish or delay in furnishing any service provided or otherwise made available to Tenant pursuant to this Article 6 (including, without limitation, telephone and telecommunication services), or for any diminution in the quality or quantity thereof and such failures or delays or diminution shall not be deemed to constitute an eviction or disturbance of Tenant’s use and possession of the Premises nor relieve Tenant from paying Rent or performing any of its obligations under this Lease. Furthermore, Landlord shall not be liable under any circumstances for a loss of, or injury to, property or for injury to, or interference with, Tenant’s business, including, without limitation, loss of profits, however occurring, through or in connection with or incidental to a failure to furnish any of the services or utilities as set forth in this Article 6.
6.5    Additional Services. Landlord shall also have the exclusive right, but not the obligation, to provide the following Building services which may be required by Tenant: locksmithing and lamp replacement, provided that Tenant shall pay to Landlord Landlord’s commercially reasonable charge for such services. Charges for any service for which Tenant is required to pay from time to time hereunder, shall be deemed Additional Rent hereunder and shall be billed on a monthly basis. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Lease, if Tenant fails to make payment for any such services within ten (10) business days of receipt of bills therefor, Landlord may discontinue any or all of such applicable services and such discontinuance shall not be deemed to constitute an eviction or disturbance of Tenant’s use and possession of the Premises or relieve Tenant from paying Rent or performing any of its other obligations under this Lease.
6.6    24 Hour Access. Tenant shall, subject to Landlord’s reasonable security requirements, Force Majeure, repairs and other de minimus interruptions (which Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize), have access to the Premises twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week.
6.7    Abatement. An “Abatement Event” shall be defined as an event that prevents Tenant from using the Premises or any portion thereof, as a result of any failure to provide utilities or services to the Premises, where (i) Tenant does not actually use the Premises or such portion thereof, and (ii) such event is caused by (A) the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its agents, employees or contractors, or (B) Landlord’s exercise of its rights under Article 27 (other than pursuant to subsections (B) or (C) thereof). Tenant shall give Landlord and any mortgagee of Landlord (of whom Tenant is notified) notice (“Abatement Notice”) of any such Abatement Event, and if such Abatement Event continues beyond the “Eligibility Period” (as that term is defined below), then the Base Rent and Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and/or Tax Expenses shall be abated entirely or reduced, as the case may be, after expiration of the Eligibility Period for such time that Tenant continues to be so prevented from using, and does not use, the Premises or a portion thereof, in the proportion that the rentable area of the portion of the Premises that Tenant is prevented from using, and does not use, bears to the total rentable area of the Premises; provided, however, in the event that Tenant is prevented from using, and does not use, a portion of the Premises for a period of time in excess of the Eligibility Period and the remaining portion of the Premises is not sufficient to allow Tenant to effectively conduct its business therein, and if Tenant does not conduct its business from such remaining portion, then for such time after expiration of the Eligibility Period during which Tenant is so prevented from effectively conducting its business therein, the Base Rent and Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and/or Tax Expenses for the entire Premises shall be abated entirely for such time as Tenant continues to be so prevented from using, and does not use, the Premises. If, however, Tenant reoccupies any portion of the Premises during such period, the Base Rent and Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and/or Tax Expenses allocable to such reoccupied portion, based on the proportion that the rentable area of such reoccupied portion of the Premises bears to the total rentable area of the Premises, shall be payable by Tenant from the date Tenant reoccupies such portion of the Premises. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if Landlord is diligently pursuing the restoration of such utilities or services and Landlord provides substitute services reasonably suitable for Tenant’s purposes as reasonably determined by Landlord, for example bringing in portable air conditioning or heating equipment, then there shall be no abatement of Base Rent or Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and/or Tax Expenses. The term “Eligibility Period” shall mean a period of five (5) consecutive business days after Landlord’s and Landlord’s mortgagee’s (if applicable), receipt of the applicable Abatement Notice. Such right to abate Base Rent and Tenant’s Share of Operating Expenses, Insurance Expenses and/or Tax Expenses shall be Tenant’s sole remedy for an Abatement Event. This Section 6.5 shall not apply in case of damage to, or destruction of, the Premises or the Building, or any eminent domain proceedings which shall be governed by separate provisions of this Lease.

ARTICLE 7
REPAIRS

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -12-    
        



7.1    Landlord Obligations. Landlord shall maintain the structural portions of the Building including the foundation, floor slabs, roof, curtain walls, columns, beams, shafts, stairs, parking areas, stairwells, plazas, pavement, sidewalks, curbs, entrances, landscaping, mechanical, electrical and telephone closets and all Common Areas and public areas and the HVAC System (collectively, “Building Structure”) and shall also maintain and repair the basic mechanical, electrical, life-safety and plumbing and sprinkler systems (collectively, “Building Systems”) all in good operating order and repair. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall be required to repair the Building Structure and/or the Building Systems and/or the Building to the extent required because of (i) Tenant’s use of all or a portion of the Premises for other than normal and customary corporate headquarter/research and development operations or (ii) action or inaction by Tenant or its agents, employees or contractors that has damaged the Building Structure and/or the Building Systems.

Notwithstanding any provision set forth in this Article 7 to the contrary, if Tenant provides written notice to Landlord of an event or circumstance which requires the action of Landlord pursuant to the terms of this Lease and which if not performed will materially and adversely prevent Tenant from operating the permitted use set forth in Section 5.1 from the Premises and Landlord fails to provide such action within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, unless such repair would normally take longer (and Landlord has commenced said repair work within said thirty (30) day period), then provided that Tenant’s performance of such repair or maintenance will not void any applicable warranties covering such repair or maintenance, Tenant may proceed to take the required action upon delivery of an additional five (5) days notice to Landlord (which additional notice must clearly specify that Tenant is taking such required action), and if such action was required under the terms of this Lease to be taken by Landlord and was not taken or commenced by Landlord within such five (5) day period, then Tenant shall be entitled to prompt reimbursement by Landlord of Tenant’s actual reasonable costs in taking such action. In the event Tenant takes such action, and such work will affect the Building Systems or the Building Structure, Tenant shall use only qualified contractors that normally and regularly performs similar work in buildings in the Carlsbad area. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of a reasonably particularized invoice from Tenant of its costs of taking action which Tenant claims should have been taken by Landlord, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant the amount set forth in such invoice. If, however, Landlord delivers to Tenant within thirty (30) days after receipt of Tenant’s invoice, a written objection to the payment of such invoice, setting forth with reasonable particularity Landlord’s reasons for its claim that such action did not have to be taken by Landlord pursuant to the terms of this Lease or that the charges are excessive (in which case Landlord shall pay the amount it contends would not have been excessive), then Tenant shall not be entitled to such reimbursement, but as Tenant’s sole remedy, Tenant may proceed to claim a default by Landlord under this Lease. Tenant agrees to indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from any injury, damage, claim or cause of action which results from Tenant’s performance of such repairs or maintenance.

7.2    Tenant’s Obligations. Except as provided as Landlord’s responsibility pursuant to this Article 7 above or elsewhere in this Lease, Tenant shall, at Tenant’s own expense, keep the Premises, including all improvements, fixtures and furnishings therein, in good order, repair and condition and free from all excessive wear and tear (including, without limitation, damage to or stains on floor coverings, damage, tears or marks on any walls or wall coverings, it being agreed that Landlord may elect in its reasonable discretion to make any necessary repairs in connection with and on Tenant’s behalf in which event Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the reasonable costs of same) at all times during the Lease Term. In addition, Tenant shall, at Tenant’s own expense but under the supervision and subject to the prior approval of Landlord (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), and within any reasonable period of time specified by Landlord, promptly and adequately repair all damage to the Premises and replace or repair all damaged or broken fixtures and appurtenances not caused by Landlord or its employees; provided however, that, at Landlord’s option, if Tenant fails to make such repairs within thirty (30) days after written notice from Landlord (except in case of emergency no notice shall be required), Landlord may, but need not, make such repairs and replacements, and Tenant shall pay Landlord the cost thereof, including a percentage of the cost thereof (to be uniformly established for the Real Property and not to exceed five percent (5%) of Landlord’s actual out‑of‑pocket costs for such repair) sufficient to reimburse Landlord for all overhead, general conditions, fees and other costs or expenses arising from Landlord’s involvement with such repairs and replacements within ten (10) business days after being billed for same. Further, Landlord shall have the right, at any time during the Lease Term, to give Tenant thirty (30) days’ prior written notice that Landlord shall assume the performance of any or all of Tenant's obligations under this Section 7.2 in lieu of Tenant's performance thereof and, in such event, (A) Tenant shall pay Landlord the reasonable out‑of‑pocket cost thereof, including a five percent (5%) administrative fee, within ten (10) business days after being billed for the same, and (B) Landlord shall have the right, at any time after sending such notice, to rescind such notice, in which case Tenant shall resume performing such obligations. Landlord may, but shall not be required to, upon at least twenty-four (24) hours’ prior notice to Tenant (except in the event of an emergency), enter the Premises at all reasonable times during normal business hours (with a Tenant escort if provided by Tenant at the time of such entry) to make such repairs, alterations, improvements and additions to the Premises or to the Real Property or to any equipment located in the Real Property as Landlord may be required or permitted to perform under this Lease or as Landlord may be required to do by governmental or quasi-governmental authority or court order or decree. Tenant hereby waives and releases its right to make repairs at Landlord’s expense under Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code or under any similar law, statute, or ordinance now or hereafter in effect. Landlord represents that Landlord has taken or shall take the necessary steps to comply with what Landlord reasonably believes are the requirements of ADA in effect as of the date Landlord obtained permits to initially construct the Project as it pertains to the common areas

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -13-    
        



within the Project. Operating Expenses shall not include any cost incurred by Landlord in connection with upgrading the Project to comply with the requirements of the ADA that were in effect as of the date Landlord obtained permits to initially construct the Project with respect to the base, shell and core of the Project only and that were in effect as of the date Landlord obtains the necessary building permits with respect to the Tenant Improvements to be constructed by Landlord as set forth in Exhibit C only, including penalties or damages incurred due to such noncompliance.

7.3    Water Sensors. Landlord, as part of the Tenant Improvements, shall install a Building-standard Leak Defense water leak sensor device designed to alert the Tenant on a twenty-four (24) hour seven (7) day per week basis if a water leak is occurring in the Premises (which water sensor device(s) located in the Premises shall be referred to herein as “Water Sensors”). The Water Sensors shall be installed on the incoming water line serving any areas in the Premises where water is utilized (such as sinks, faucets, water heaters, coffee machines, ice machines, water dispensers and water fountains), and in locations that may reasonably be designated from time to time by Landlord (the “Sensor Areas”). In connection with any Alterations (as defined in Section 8.1) affecting or relating to any Sensor Areas, Landlord may require Water Sensors to be installed or updated in Landlord's reasonable discretion. With respect to the installation of any such Water Sensors in connection with any Alterations, Tenant shall obtain Landlord's prior written consent, use an experienced and qualified contractor reasonably designated by Landlord, and comply with all of the other provisions of Article 8 of this Lease. Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, pursuant to Section 7.1 of this Lease keep any Water Sensors located in the Premises (whether installed by Tenant or someone else) in good working order, repair and condition at all times during the Lease Term and comply with all of the other provisions this Lease respecting the same. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained herein, Landlord has neither an obligation to monitor, repair (provided, however, that Landlord shall assign to Tenant any warranties in connection with such Water Sensors installed as part of the Tenant Improvements) or otherwise maintain the Water Sensors, nor an obligation to respond to any alerts it may receive from Water Sensors or which may be generated from the Water Sensors. Upon the expiration of the Lease Term, or immediately following any earlier termination of this Lease, provided that Landlord notified Tenant in writing at the time Landlord approved of the applicable Alterations that the Water Sensors would be required to be removed at the end of the Lease Term, Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, shall remove all such Water Sensors installed by Tenant, and repair any damage caused by such removal; provided, however, if Landlord did not so require the Tenant to remove the Water Sensors as contemplated by the foregoing, then Tenant shall leave the Water Sensors in place together with all necessary user information such that the same may be used by a future occupant of the Premises (e.g., the water sensors shall be unblocked and ready for use by a third-party). If Tenant is required to remove the Water Sensors pursuant to the foregoing and Tenant fails to complete such removal and/or fails to repair any damage caused by the removal of any Water Sensors, Landlord may do so and may charge the cost thereof to Tenant.

ARTICLE 8

ADDITIONS AND ALTERATIONS
8.1    Landlord’s Consent to Alterations. Tenant may not make any improvements, alterations, additions or changes to the Premises (collectively, the “Alterations”) without first procuring the prior written consent of Landlord to such Alterations, which consent shall (1) be requested by Tenant not less than thirty (30) days prior to the commencement thereof, and (2) include (A) a complete set of plans and specifications for the Alterations, including MEP drawings, and (B) a copy of Tenant’s general contractor’s certificate of insurance, evidencing such contractor’s insurance in the amounts required under this Lease of Tenant and the additional insureds named on such insurance, which additional insureds shall be all parties Tenant is required to name as additional insureds on its insurance policies under this Lease. Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay its consent to any Alterations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant may make strictly cosmetic changes to the finish work in the Premises (e.g., carpet and paint), without Landlord’s consent, provided that the aggregate cost of any such changes does not exceed $100,000.00 in any twelve (12) month period, and such changes do not require any structural or other substantial modifications to the Premises, do not require the demolition or construction of demising walls, do not require any changes to, or adversely affect, the Systems and Equipment, and do not affect the exterior appearance of the Building. Tenant shall give Landlord at least thirty (30) days prior notice of such cosmetic changes, which notice shall be accompanied by reasonably adequate evidence that such changes meet the criteria contained in this Section 8.1. The construction of the initial improvements to the Premises shall be governed by the terms of the Tenant Work Letter and not the terms of this Article 8.
8.2    Manner of Construction. Landlord may impose, as a condition of its consent to all Alterations or repairs of the Premises or about the Premises, such requirements as Landlord may reasonably require, including, but not limited to, the requirement that Tenant shall, at Tenant’s expense, remove such Alterations upon the expiration or any early termination of the Lease Term, and/or the requirement that Tenant utilize for such purposes only contractors, materials, mechanics and materialmen reasonably approved by Landlord. In any event, a contractor of Landlord’s selection (provided the fees charged by such contractors shall be competitive with those charged by other similarly qualified and reputable contractors doing business in the vicinity of the Building) shall perform all mechanical, electrical, plumbing, life-safety, sprinkler, structural, and HVAC work and such work shall be performed at Tenant’s sole cost. Tenant shall construct such Alterations and perform such repairs in conformance with any and all applicable rules and

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -14-    
        



regulations of any federal, state, county or municipal code or ordinance and pursuant to a valid building permit, issued by the appropriate governmental authorities (a copy of which shall be provided by Tenant to Landlord when issued), in conformance with Landlord’s reasonable and non‑discriminatory construction rules and regulations. In addition, Tenant hereby acknowledges that Landlord has established specifications (the “Building Standards”) for the Building standard components to be used in the construction of the any Alterations (including, the initial Tenant Improvements), which Building Standard are attached hereto as Exhibit I and incorporated herein by this reference. The quality of Alterations (including, the initial Tenant Improvements) shall be equal to or of greater quality than the quality of the Building Standards. Landlord may make reasonable and non‑discriminatory changes to the Building Standards upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Tenant. Landlord’s approval of the plans, specifications and working drawings for Tenant’s Alterations shall create no responsibility or liability on the part of Landlord for their completeness, design sufficiency, or compliance with all laws, rules and regulations of governmental agencies or authorities. All work with respect to any Alterations must be done in a good and workmanlike manner and diligently prosecuted to completion. In performing the work of any such Alterations, Tenant shall have the work performed in such manner as not to unreasonably obstruct access to the Building or the Common Areas for any other tenant of the Building, and as not to unreasonably obstruct the business of Landlord or other tenants in the Building or unreasonably interfere with the labor force working in the Building and/or Real Property. Upon completion of any Alterations (other than strictly cosmetic changes), Tenant agrees to cause a Notice of Completion to be recorded in the office of the Recorder of the County of San Diego in accordance with Section 3093 of the Civil Code of the State of California or any successor statute, and Tenant shall deliver to the Building management office a (i) reproducible copy of the “as built” drawings of the Alterations, and (ii) copies of any permit cards, contractor or material warranties and/or any maintenance or ownership manuals relating to the Alterations in CAD format.
8.3    Payment for Improvements. In the event Tenant orders any Alteration or repair work directly from Landlord, and if Landlord elects to perform such work on Tenant’s behalf, the charges for such work shall be deemed Additional Rent under this Lease, payable within ten (10) business days after billing therefor, either periodically during construction or upon the substantial completion of such work, at Landlord’s option. Upon completion of work performed by Tenant, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord evidence of payment, contractors’ affidavits and full and final waivers of all liens for labor, services or materials. Whether or not Tenant orders any work directly from Landlord (other than strictly cosmetic changes), Tenant shall pay to Landlord an amount equal to five percent (5%) of the hard and soft costs of such work.
8.4    Intentionally Omitted.
8.5    Landlord’s Property. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease, all Alterations, improvements and fixtures which may be installed or placed in or about the Premises (exclusive of Tenant’s furniture, trade fixtures, signs, equipment and personal property, which shall not become the property of Landlord), and all signs installed in, on or about the Premises, from time to time, shall be at the sole cost of Tenant and shall, upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, become the property of Landlord. Furthermore Landlord may, by written notice to Tenant at the time of Tenant’s request for consent to such Alterations (provided Tenant requests the Landlord make such a determination at the time of Tenant request for consent), require Tenant at Tenant’s expense to remove such Alterations and to repair any damage to the Premises and Building caused by such removal prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. If Tenant fails to complete such removal and/or to repair any damage caused by the removal of any Alterations, Landlord may do so and may charge the cost thereof to Tenant which cost shall be paid by Tenant within ten (10) business days after demand therefor and which obligation shall expressly survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
8.6    Security System. Tenant shall be entitled to install, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, a separate security system for the Premises as an Alteration or as a part of the Tenant Improvements; provided, however, that (i) the plans and specifications for any such system shall be subject to Landlord’s reasonable approval, (ii) any such system must be compatible with the existing systems of the Building, (iii) Tenant’s obligation to indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless as provided in, and subject to, Section 10.1 below shall also apply to Tenant’s use and operation of any such system, and (iv) the installation of such system shall otherwise be subject to the terms and conditions of this Article 8. Tenant shall at all times provide Landlord with a contact person who can disarm the security system and who is familiar with the functions of the alarm system in the event of a malfunction, and Tenant shall provide Landlord with the alarm codes or other necessary information required to disarm the alarm system in the event Landlord must enter the Premises.


ARTICLE 9

COVENANT AGAINST LIENS
Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, if any liens of mechanics or materialmen or others are placed against the Real Property, the Building or the Premises with respect to work or services claimed to have been performed for or materials claimed to have been furnished to Tenant or the Premises (other than in connection with

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -15-    
        



the Tenant Improvements), and, in case of any such lien attaching or notice of any lien, Tenant covenants and agrees to cause it to be promptly released and removed of record. Landlord shall have the right at all times to post and keep posted on the Premises any reasonable notice which it deems necessary for protection from such liens. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Lease, in the event that such a lien (other than a lien created in the course of the construction of Tenant Improvements by Landlord which shall be the obligation of Landlord to remove) is not released and removed within twenty (20) days after the date notice of such lien is delivered by Landlord to Tenant, Landlord, at its sole option, may immediately take all action necessary to release and remove such lien, without any duty to investigate the validity thereof, and all actual, out‑of‑pocket sums, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred by Landlord in connection with such lien shall be deemed Additional Rent under this Lease and shall be due and payable by Tenant within ten (10) business days after written demand therefor, along with copies of all applicable invoices.
ARTICLE 10

INSURANCE
10.1    Indemnification and Waiver. To the extent not prohibited by law, Landlord, its lender, its members, their partners and all of their respective officers, agents, servants, employees, and independent contractors (collectively, “Landlord Parties”) shall not be liable for any damage either to person or property or resulting from the loss of use thereof, which damage is sustained by Tenant or by other persons claiming through Tenant, unless such damage was caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or any of the Landlord Parties. Subject to the terms of Section 10.5 and except to the extent such matter is attributable to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or any of the Landlord Parties, Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant or Tenant’s employees, agents or invitees for: (a) any damage to property of Tenant, or of others, located in, on or about the Premises; nor for (b) the loss of or damage to any property of Tenant or of others by theft or otherwise; (c) any injury or damage to persons or property resulting from fire, explosion, falling plaster, steam, gas, mold, electricity, water, rain or leaks from any part of the Premises or from the pipes, appliance of plumbing works or from the roof, street or subsurface or from any other places or by dampness or by any other cause of whatsoever nature; or (d) any such damage caused by other tenants or persons in the Premises, occupants of adjacent property of the Real Property, or the public, or caused by operations in construction of any private, public or quasi-public work. Tenant shall indemnify, defend, protect, and hold harmless Landlord Parties from any and all loss, cost, damage, expense and liability (including without limitation court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with or arising from Tenant’s occupancy or use of the Premises or any cause on or about the Premises, provided that the terms of the foregoing indemnity shall not apply to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of any of the Landlord Parties. The provisions of this Section 10.1 shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease with respect to any claims or liability occurring prior to such expiration or termination.
10.2    Tenant’s Compliance with Landlord’s Fire and Casualty Insurance. Tenant shall, at Tenant’s expense, comply with all insurance company requirements pertaining to the use of the Premises. If Tenant’s conduct or use of the Premises (including the construction of the Tenant Improvements or any Alterations) causes any increase in the premium for such insurance policies, then Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any such increase within ten (10) business days after written demand therefor, along with a statement from the applicable insurer stating the amount of the increase attributable to Tenant’s conduct or use. Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, shall comply with all rules, orders, regulations or requirements of the American Insurance Association (formerly the National Board of Fire Underwriters) and with any similar body.
10.3    Tenant’s Insurance. Tenant shall maintain the following coverages in the following amounts.
10.3.1    Commercial General Liability Insurance covering the insured against claims of bodily injury, personal injury and property damage arising out of Tenant’s operations, assumed liabilities or use of the Premises, including a Broad Form Commercial General Liability endorsement covering the insuring provisions of this Lease and the performance by Tenant of the indemnity agreements set forth in Section 10.1 of this Lease, for limits of liability not less than:
Bodily Injury and
Property Damage Liability
$3,000,000 each occurrence
$3,000,000 annual aggregate
Personal Injury Liability
$3,000,000 each occurrence
$3,000,000 annual aggregate
 
0% Insured’s participation
Notwithstanding the foregoing, such insurance may be furnished by Tenant under a blanket policy so long as and provided such policy: (a) strictly complies with all other terms and conditions contained in this Lease, (b) contains an endorsement that identifies with specificity the particular address of the Premises as being covered under the blanket policy, (c) provides a minimum guaranteed coverage amount of $3,000,000.00 per occurrence for the Premises, and (d) expressly waives any prorata distribution requirement contained in Tenant’s blanket policy covering the Premises.
10.3.2    Cause of Loss-Special Form Insurance covering (i) all office furniture, trade fixtures, office equipment, merchandise and all other items of Tenant’s property on the Premises installed by, for, or at the expense of Tenant, (ii) the Tenant Improvements, including any Tenant Improvements which Landlord permits to be installed

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -16-    
        



above the ceiling of the Premises or below the floor of the Premises, and (iii) all other improvements, alterations and additions to the Premises, including any improvements, alterations or additions installed at Tenant’s request above the ceiling of the Premises or below the floor of the Premises. Such insurance shall be written on an “special causes of loss” basis, for the full replacement cost value new without deduction for depreciation of the covered items and in amounts that meet any co-insurance clauses of the policies of insurance and shall include a vandalism and malicious mischief endorsement, sprinkler leakage coverage and earthquake sprinkler leakage coverage.
10.3.3    Loss of income and extra expense insurance in such amounts as will reimburse Tenant for direct or indirect loss of earnings attributable to all perils commonly insured against by prudent tenants or attributable to prevention of access to the Premises or to the Building as a result of such perils.
10.4    Form of Policies. The minimum limits of policies of insurance required of Tenant under this Lease shall in no event limit the liability of Tenant under this Lease. All insurance shall (i) be issued by responsible insurance companies authorized to do business in the State of California and with a general policyholder rating of not less than “A-” and financial size category rating of not less than “VIII” in the most current Best’s Insurance Report; and (ii) not have a deductible amount exceeding Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000.00), which deductible amount shall be deemed self-insured with full waiver of subrogation. Tenant shall notify Landlord at least ten (10) days prior to the cancellation of any such insurance. In addition, the insurance described in Section 10.3.1 above shall (a) name Landlord, and any other party specified by Landlord, as an additional insured; (b) specifically cover the liability assumed by Tenant under this Lease including, but not limited to, Tenant’s obligations under Section 10.1 of this Lease; (c) be primary insurance as to all claims thereunder and provide that any insurance required by Landlord is excess and is non-contributing with any insurance requirement of Tenant; and (d) contain a cross-liability endorsement or severability of interest clause acceptable to Landlord. Tenant shall deliver all certificates of insurance to Landlord concurrent with Tenant’s execution of this Lease and at least ten (10) days before the expiration dates thereof. In the event Tenant shall fail to procure such insurance, or to deliver such certificates within ten (10) days of a written request from Landlord to do so, Landlord may give Tenant written notice of such failure and five (5) days to cure. If such failure is not cured prior to the expiration of such five (5) day‑period, Landlord may, at its option, procure such policies for the account of Tenant, and the cost thereof shall be paid to Landlord as Additional Rent within ten (10) business days after delivery to Tenant of bills therefor.
10.5    Subrogation. Landlord and Tenant agree to have their respective insurance companies issuing property damage and loss of income and extra expense insurance waive any rights of subrogation that such companies may have against Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, so long as the insurance carried by Landlord and Tenant, respectively, is not invalidated thereby. As long as such waivers of subrogation are contained or are required to be contained in their respective insurance policies, Landlord and Tenant hereby waive any right that either may have against the other on account of any loss or damage to the extent such loss or damage is insurable under such policies of insurance. The foregoing waiver shall also apply to any deductible amounts or self-insured retentions.
10.6    Additional Insurance Obligations. Tenant shall carry and maintain during the entire Lease Term, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, increased amounts of the insurance required to be carried by Tenant pursuant to this Article 10, and such other reasonable types of insurance coverage and in such reasonable amounts covering the Premises and Tenant’s operations therein, as may be reasonably requested by Landlord, provided such amounts and types of insurance are then customarily required by other institutional‑quality landlords of other buildings similar to the Building in Carlsbad, California, unless required by Landlord’s lender.
ARTICLE 11

DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION
11.1    Repair of Damage to Premises by Landlord. Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord of any damage to the Premises resulting from fire or any other casualty. If the Premises or any Common Areas of the Real Property serving or providing access to the Premises shall be damaged by fire or other casualty, Landlord shall use good faith efforts, subject to reasonable delays for insurance adjustment or other matters beyond Landlord’s reasonable control, and subject to all other terms of this Article 11, to restore the base, shell, and core of the Premises and such Common Areas. Such restoration shall be to substantially the same condition of the base, shell, and core of the Premises and Common Areas prior to the casualty, except for modifications required by zoning and building codes and other laws or by the holder of a mortgage on the Real Property, or the lessor of a ground or underlying lease with respect to the Real Property and/or the Building, or any other modifications to the Common Areas deemed desirable by Landlord, provided access to the Premises and any common restrooms serving the Premises shall not be materially impaired. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease, upon the occurrence of any damage to the Premises, Tenant shall assign to Landlord (or to any party designated by Landlord) all insurance proceeds payable to Tenant under Tenant’s insurance required under Sections 10.3.2(ii) and (iii) of this Lease, and Landlord shall repair any injury or damage to the Tenant Improvements installed in the Premises to substantially the same condition as existed prior to such injury or damage; provided that if the cost of such repair by Landlord exceeds the amount of insurance proceeds received by Landlord from Tenant’s insurance carrier, as assigned by Tenant, the cost of such repairs shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord prior to Landlord’s repair of the damage. In connection with such repairs and replacements, Tenant shall, prior to the commencement of construction, submit to Landlord, for Landlord’s review and approval, all plans, specifications and working drawings relating thereto, and Landlord shall select the contractors to perform such

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -17-    
        



improvement work. Such submittal of plans and construction of improvements shall be performed in substantial compliance with the terms of the Tenant Work Letter and the Building Standards as though such construction of improvements were the initial construction of the Tenant Improvements. Landlord shall not be liable for any inconvenience or annoyance to Tenant or its visitors, or injury to Tenant’s business resulting in any way from such damage or the repair thereof; provided however, that if such fire or other casualty shall have damaged the Premises or Common Areas necessary to Tenant’s occupancy, Landlord shall allow Tenant a proportionate abatement of Rent during the time and to the extent any material portion of the Premises are unfit for occupancy for the purposes permitted under this Lease, and not occupied by Tenant as a result thereof; however, if such damage is not the result of the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or Tenant’s employees, contractors, licensees, or invitees, Landlord shall allow such proportionate abatement of Rent only if and to the extent Landlord is reimbursed from the proceeds of rental interruption insurance purchased by Landlord as part of Operating Expenses.
11.2    Landlord’s Option Not to Repair. Notwithstanding the terms of Section 11.1 of this Lease, Landlord may elect not to rebuild and/or restore the Premises and/or Building and instead, provided Landlord terminates the leases of all other tenants of the Building under whose leases Landlord has an exercisable termination right, terminate this Lease by notifying Tenant in writing of such termination within sixty (60) days after the date Landlord learns of the necessity for repairs as the result of damage, such notice to include a termination date giving Tenant not less than thirty (30) days nor more than ninety (90) days to vacate the Premises, but Landlord may so elect only if the Building shall be damaged by fire or other casualty or cause, whether or not the Premises are affected, and one or more of the following conditions is present: (i) repairs cannot reasonably be completed within one hundred eighty (180) days after the date Landlord learns of the necessity for repairs as the result of damage (when such repairs are made without the payment of overtime or other premiums); (ii) the holder of any mortgage on the Building or ground or underlying lessor with respect to the Real Property and/or the Building shall require that the insurance proceeds or any portion thereof be used to retire the mortgage debt, or shall terminate the ground or underlying lease, as the case may be; or (iii) the damage is not fully covered, except for deductible amounts, by Landlord’s insurance policies.
Within sixty (60) days after the date Landlord learns of the necessity for repairs as a result of damage to the Premises or Common Areas necessary to Tenant’s occupancy of the Premises, Landlord shall notify Tenant (the “Damage Repair Estimate”) of Landlord’s estimated assessment of the period of time in which the repairs will be completed, which assessment shall be based upon the opinion of a contractor reasonably selected by Landlord and experienced in comparable repairs of high-rise office buildings. If Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease pursuant to Landlord’s termination right as provided above, and the Damage Repair Estimate indicates that repairs cannot be completed within one hundred eighty (180) days after being commenced, Tenant may elect, not later than thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of the Damage Repair Estimate, to terminate this Lease by written notice to Landlord effective as of the date Landlord receives such notice.
11.3    Waiver of Statutory Provisions. The provisions of this Lease, including this Article 11, constitute an express agreement between Landlord and Tenant with respect to any and all damage to, or destruction of, all or any part of the Premises, the Building or any other portion of the Real Property, and any statute or regulation of the State of California, including, without limitation, Sections 1932(2) and 1933(4) of the California Civil Code, with respect to any rights or obligations concerning damage or destruction in the absence of an express agreement between the parties, and any other statute or regulation, now or hereafter in effect, shall have no application to this Lease or any damage or destruction to all or any part of the Premises, the Building or any other portion of the Real Property.
11.4    Damage Near End of Term. In the event that the Premises or the Building is destroyed or damaged to any substantial extent during the last twelve (12) months of the Lease Term, then notwithstanding anything contained in this Article 11, Landlord and Tenant shall each have the option to terminate this Lease by giving written notice to the other of the exercise of such option within sixty (60) days after Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, learns of the necessity for repairs as the result of such damage or destruction, in which event this Lease shall cease and terminate as of the date of such notice, Tenant shall pay the Base Rent and Additional Rent, properly apportioned up to such date of damage, and both parties hereto shall thereafter be freed and discharged of all further obligations hereunder, except as provided for in provisions of this Lease which by their terms survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease Term.
ARTICLE 12
NONWAIVER
No waiver of any provision of this Lease shall be implied by any failure of Landlord or Tenant to enforce any remedy on account of the violation of such provision, even if such violation shall continue or be repeated subsequently, any waiver by Landlord or Tenant of any provision of this Lease may only be in writing, and no waiver shall affect any provision other than the one specified in such waiver and that one only for the time and in the manner specifically stated. No receipt of monies by Landlord from Tenant after the termination of this Lease shall in any way alter the length of the Lease Term or of Tenant’s right of possession hereunder.
ARTICLE 13    

CONDEMNATION

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -18-    
        



13.1    Permanent Taking. If the whole or any substantial part of the Premises or Real Property shall be taken by power of eminent domain or condemned by any competent authority for any public or quasi-public use or purpose, or if any adjacent property or street shall be so taken or condemned, or reconfigured or vacated by such authority, and if Landlord reasonably determines that any such taking will require the use, reconstruction or remodeling of any part of the Premises or Building, or if Landlord shall grant a deed or other instrument in lieu of such taking by eminent domain or condemnation, Landlord shall have the option to terminate this Lease upon not less than thirty (30) nor more than ninety (90) days’ notice, provided such notice is given no later than sixty (60) days after the date of such taking, condemnation, reconfiguration, vacation, deed or other instrument. If more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the square feet of the Premises is taken, or if access to the Premises is substantially impaired, Tenant shall have the option to terminate this Lease upon ninety (90) days’ notice, provided such notice is given no later than thirty (30) days after the date of such taking. Landlord shall be entitled to receive the entire award or payment in connection therewith, except that Tenant shall have the right to file any separate claim available to Tenant for any taking of Tenant’s personal property and fixtures belonging to Tenant and removable by Tenant upon expiration of the Lease Term pursuant to the terms of this Lease, for moving expenses, and for loss of goodwill, so long as such claim does not diminish the award available to Landlord, its ground lessor with respect to the Real Property or its mortgagee, and such claim is payable separately to Tenant. All Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination, or the date of such taking, whichever shall first occur. If any part of the Premises shall be taken, and this Lease shall not be so terminated, the Rent shall be proportionately abated. Tenant hereby waives any and all rights it might otherwise have pursuant to Section 1265.130 of the California Code of Civil Procedure.
13.2    Temporary Taking. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 13, in the event of a temporary taking of all or any portion of the Premises for a period of one hundred and eighty (180) days or less, then this Lease shall not terminate but the Base Rent and the Additional Rent shall be abated for the period of such taking in proportion to the ratio that the number of square feet of the Premises taken bears to the total number of square feet of the Premises. Landlord shall be entitled to receive the entire award made in connection with any such temporary taking except for any award made expressly applicable to interruption of Tenant’s business, or the taking or use of Tenant’s personal property.
ARTICLE 14    

ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING
14.1    Transfers. Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent (except as otherwise provided in Section 14.7 below) of Landlord (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate, encumber, or permit any lien to attach to, or otherwise transfer this Lease or any interest hereunder, sublet the Premises or any part thereof, or permit the use of the Premises by any persons other than Tenant and its employees and visitors (all of the foregoing are hereinafter sometimes referred to collectively as “Transfers” and any person or entity to whom any Transfer is made or sought to be made is hereinafter sometimes referred to as a “Transferee”). If Tenant shall desire Landlord’s consent to any Transfer, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing, which notice (the “Transfer Notice”) shall include (i) the proposed effective date of the Transfer, which shall not be less than sixty (60) days after the date of delivery of the Transfer Notice; (ii) a description of the portion of the Premises to be transferred (the “Subject Space”); (iii) all of the terms of the proposed Transfer and the consideration therefor, including a calculation of the “Transfer Premium,” as that term is defined in Section 14.3 below, in connection with such Transfer, the name and address of the proposed Transferee, and a copy of all existing operative documents to be executed to evidence such Transfer or the agreements incidental or related to such Transfer; (iv) financial statements of the proposed Transferee (including, without limitation, such Transferee’s most recent three (3) years’ audited financial statements or if audited financial statements are not available, financial statements certified by the Proposed Transferee); and (v) any other information required by Landlord, which will enable Landlord to determine the financial responsibility, character, and reputation of the proposed Transferee, nature of such Transferee’s business and proposed use of the Subject Space, and such other information as Landlord may reasonably require. Any Transfer made without Landlord’s prior written consent shall, at Landlord’s option, be null, void and of no effect, and shall, at Landlord’s option, constitute a default by Tenant under this Lease. Whether or not Landlord shall grant consent, Tenant shall pay Landlord’s review and processing fees (not to exceed Two Thousand Dollars ($2,000.00) per Transfer), as well as any reasonable out‑of‑pocket legal fees incurred by Landlord in connection with any proposed Transfer, within ten (10) business days after written request by Landlord.
14.2    Landlord’s Consent. Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay its consent to any proposed Transfer of the Subject Space to the Transferee on the terms specified in the Transfer Notice. The parties hereby agree that it shall be reasonable for Landlord to withhold consent to any proposed Transfer where one or more of the following apply, without limitation as to other reasonable grounds for withholding consent:
14.2.1    The Transferee is of a character or reputation or engaged in a business which is not consistent with the quality of the Real Property;
14.2.2    The proposed Transferee intends to use the Subject Space for purposes which are not permitted under any then existing lease for any portion of the Real Property;
14.2.3    The proposed Transferee is either a governmental agency or instrumentality thereof;

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -19-    
        



14.2.4    The Transfer will result in a number of occupants within the Subject Space exceeding governmental laws, rules, codes or regulations;
14.2.5    The proposed Transferee is not a party of reasonable financial worth and/or financial stability in light of the responsibilities involved under the Transfer on the date consent is requested;
14.2.6    The proposed Transfer would cause Landlord to be in violation of another lease or agreement to which Landlord is a party, or would give an occupant of the Real Property a right to cancel its lease;
14.2.7    Either the proposed Transferee, or any person or entity which directly or indirectly, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, the proposed Transferee, (i) occupies space in the Real Property at the time of the request for consent and Landlord has space available to accommodate the proposed Transferee’s needs, or (ii) is negotiating with Landlord to lease space in the Real Property at such time;
14.2.8    The proposed Transferee intends to use the Subject Space for any school, educational purposes or a fitness center;
14.2.9    The Transferee’s use of the Premises will cause an increase in Operating Expenses, Tax Expenses or Insurance Expenses; or
14.2.10    Landlord determines in its reasonable discretion that the Transfer shall negatively impact the Premises or Landlord’s interests therein.
If Landlord consents to any Transfer pursuant to the terms of this Section 14.2 (and does not exercise any recapture rights Landlord may have under Section 14.4 of this Lease), Tenant may within three (3) months after Landlord’s consent, but not later than the expiration of said three-month period, enter into such Transfer of the Premises or portion thereof, upon the same terms and conditions as are set forth in the Transfer Notice furnished by Tenant to Landlord pursuant to Section 14.1 of this Lease, provided that if there are any changes in the terms and conditions from those specified in the Transfer Notice such that Landlord would initially have been entitled to refuse its consent to such Transfer under this Section 14.2, Tenant shall again submit the Transfer to Landlord for its approval and other action under this Article 14 (including Landlord’s right of recapture, if any, under Section 14.4 of this Lease). Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Lease, if Tenant or any proposed Transferee claims that Landlord has unreasonably withheld or delayed its consent to a proposed Transfer or otherwise has breached its obligations under this Article 14, Tenant’s and such Transferee’s only remedies shall be to seek a declaratory judgment and/or injunctive relief and the recovery of fees and costs pursuant to Section 29.21 below, and Tenant, on behalf of itself and, to the extent permitted by law, such proposed Transferee waives all other remedies against Landlord, including without limitation, the right to seek monetary damages or to terminate this Lease.
14.3    Transfer Premium.
14.3.1    Definition of Transfer Premium. If Landlord consents to a Transfer, as a condition thereto which the parties hereby agree is reasonable, Tenant shall pay to Landlord fifty percent (50%) of any “Transfer Premium,” as that term is defined in this Section 14.3, actually received by Tenant from such Transferee. “Transfer Premium” shall mean all rent, additional rent or other consideration payable (in lieu of or in addition to rent, but after deducting any abated rent) by such Transferee in excess of the Rent and Additional Rent payable by Tenant under this Lease on a per square foot basis if less than all of the Premises is transferred, after deducting the reasonable expenses incurred by Tenant for (i) any changes, alterations and improvements to the Premises in connection with the Transfer, (ii) any brokerage commissions and marketing costs in connection with the Transfer, and (iii) reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by Tenant in connection with the Transfer (collectively, the “Subleasing Costs”). “Transfer Premium” shall also include, but not be limited to, key money and bonus money paid by Transferee to Tenant in connection with such Transfer, and any payment in excess of fair market value for services rendered by Tenant to Transferee or for assets, fixtures, inventory, equipment, or furniture transferred by Tenant to Transferee in connection with such Transfer. If part of the Transfer Premium shall be payable by the Transferee other than in cash, Landlord’s share of such non-cash consideration shall be in such form as is reasonably satisfactory to Landlord.
14.3.2    Payment of Transfer Premiums. The determination of the amount of the Transfer Premium shall be made on an annual basis in accordance with the terms of this Section 14.3.2, but an estimate of the amount of the Transfer Premium shall be made each month and one-twelfth of such estimated amount shall be paid to Landlord promptly, but in no event later than the next date for payment of Base Rent hereunder (but not earlier than ten (10) business days after delivery of such determination), subject to an annual reconciliation on each anniversary date of the Transfer. For purposes of calculating the Transfer Premium on an annual basis, Tenant’s Subleasing Costs shall be deemed to be offset against the first rent, additional rent or other consideration payable by the Transferee, until such Subleasing Costs are exhausted.
14.4    Landlord’s Option as to Subject Space. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 14, Landlord shall have the option, by giving written notice to Tenant within thirty (30) days after receipt of any Transfer Notice, to recapture the Subject Space; provided, however, in the case of a subletting, Landlord may not exercise such recapture right unless the term of the subletting is for all or substantially all of the remaining Lease Term. Such recapture notice shall cancel and terminate this Lease with respect to the Subject Space as of the date stated in

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -20-    
        



the Transfer Notice as the effective date of the proposed Transfer. In the event of a recapture by Landlord, if this Lease shall be canceled with respect to less than the entire Premises, the Rent reserved herein shall be prorated on the basis of the number of square feet retained by Tenant in proportion to the number of square feet contained in the Premises, and this Lease as so amended shall continue thereafter in full force and effect, and upon request of either party, the parties shall execute written confirmation of the same. If Landlord declines, or fails to elect in a timely manner to recapture the Subject Space under this Section 14.4, then, provided Landlord has consented to the proposed Transfer, Tenant shall be entitled to proceed to transfer the Subject Space to the proposed Transferee, subject to the other provisions of this Article 14. The provisions of this Section 14.4 shall not apply to any Transfer to an Affiliate.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord elects to recapture the Subject Space, Tenant may, within fifteen (15) days after Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice thereof, deliver written notice to Landlord indicating that Tenant is rescinding its request for consent to the proposed Transfer, in which case such Transfer shall not be consummated and this Lease shall remain in full force and effect as to the portion of the Premises that was the subject of the Transfer. Tenant’s failure to so notify Landlord in writing within said fifteen (15) day period shall be deemed to constitute Tenant’s election to allow Landlord to recapture the Subject Space.
14.5    Effect of Transfer. If Landlord consents to a Transfer, (i) the terms and conditions of this Lease shall in no way be deemed to have been waived or modified; (ii) such consent shall not be deemed consent to any further Transfer by either Tenant or a Transferee; (iii) Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, promptly after execution, an original executed copy of all documentation pertaining to the Transfer in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord; (iv) Tenant shall furnish upon Landlord’s request a complete statement of any Transfer Premium Tenant has derived and shall derive from such Transfer; and (v) no Transfer relating to this Lease or agreement entered into with respect thereto, whether with or without Landlord’s consent, shall relieve Tenant or any guarantor of the Lease from liability under this Lease. Landlord or its authorized representatives shall have the right at all reasonable times, upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Tenant, to audit the books, records and papers of Tenant relating to any Transfer, and shall have the right to make copies thereof. If the Transfer Premium respecting any Transfer shall be found understated, Tenant shall, within thirty (30) days after demand, pay the deficiency and Landlord’s costs of such audit.
14.6    Additional Transfers. For purposes of this Lease, the term “Transfer” shall also include (i) if Tenant is a partnership, the withdrawal or change, voluntary, involuntary or by operation of law, of more than forty-nine percent (49%) of the partners, or transfer of twenty-five percent or more of partnership interests, within a twelve (12)-month period, or the dissolution of the partnership without immediate reconstitution thereof; and (ii) if Tenant is a closely held corporation (i.e., whose stock is not publicly held and not traded through an exchange or over the counter), (A) the dissolution, merger, consolidation or other reorganization of Tenant, (B) the sale or other transfer of more than an aggregate of forty-nine percent (49%) of the voting shares of Tenant (other than to immediate family members by reason of gift or death), within a twelve (12)-month period, or (C) the sale, mortgage, hypothecation or pledge of more than an aggregate of percent (49%) of the value of the unencumbered assets of Tenant within a twelve (12) month period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, so long as Maxlinear, Inc., or an Affiliate thereof, is the Tenant under this Lease, a transfer of any equity investment or interest in Tenant by any entity or individual holding or owning an interest in Tenant, or any public offering by Tenant, will not constitute an assignment, transfer, mortgage or encumbrance, and shall not require the consent of Landlord.
14.7    Non-Transfers. The term “Affiliate” shall mean (i) any entity that is controlled by, controls or is under common control with, Tenant or (ii) any entity that merges with, is acquired by, or acquired Tenant through the purchase of stock or assets and where the net worth of the surviving entity as of the date of such transaction is completed is not less than that of Tenant immediately prior to the transaction calculated under generally accepted accounting principles. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 14, an assignment or subletting of all or a portion of the Premises to an Affiliate, shall not be deemed a Transfer under this Article 14, provided that Tenant notifies Landlord of any such assignment or sublease and promptly supplies Landlord with any documents or information requested by Landlord regarding such assignment or sublease or such Affiliate, and further provided that such assignment or sublease is not a subterfuge by Tenant to avoid its obligations under this Lease. An assignee of Tenant’s entire interest in this Lease pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence may be referred to herein as an “Affiliated Assignee.” “Control,” as used in this Section 14.7, shall mean the ownership, directly or indirectly, of greater than twenty-five percent (25%) of the voting securities of, or possession of the right to vote, in the ordinary direction of its affairs, of greater than twenty-five percent (25%) of the voting interest in, an entity.
ARTICLE 15
SURRENDER OF PREMISES; OWNERSHIP
AND REMOVAL OF TRADE FIXTURES
15.1    Surrender of Premises. No act or thing done by Landlord or any agent or employee of Landlord during the Lease Term shall be deemed to constitute an acceptance by Landlord of a surrender of the Premises unless such intent is specifically acknowledged in a writing signed by Landlord. The delivery of keys to the Premises to Landlord or any agent or employee of Landlord shall not constitute a surrender of the Premises or effect a termination of this Lease, whether or not the keys are thereafter retained by Landlord, and notwithstanding such delivery Tenant shall be entitled to the return of such keys at any reasonable time upon request until this Lease shall have been properly terminated. The voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Tenant, whether accepted by Landlord or not, or a mutual

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -21-    
        



termination hereof, shall not work a merger, and at the option of Landlord shall operate as an assignment to Landlord of all subleases or subtenancies affecting the Premises.
15.2    Removal of Tenant Property by Tenant. Upon the expiration of the Lease Term, or upon any earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant shall, subject to the provisions of this Article 15, quit and surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord in as good order and condition as when Tenant took possession and as thereafter improved by Landlord and/or Tenant, reasonable wear and tear, casualty, condemnation and repairs which are specifically made the responsibility of Landlord hereunder excepted. Prior to such expiration or termination, Tenant shall, without expense to Landlord, remove or cause to be removed from the Premises all debris and rubbish, and such items of furniture, equipment, free-standing cabinet work, and other articles of personal property owned by Tenant or installed or placed by Tenant at its expense in the Premises, and Tenant shall repair at its own expense all damage to the Premises (other than reasonable wear and tear) and Building resulting from such removal, which repair shall include steam cleaning the carpet in the Premises, unless Landlord notifies Tenant in writing that Landlord will perform all or any portion of such removal or repair on Tenant’s behalf and at Tenant’s sole cost and expense (plus a five percent (5%) administrative fee), in which case, at Landlord’s election, either (i) Landlord shall be reimbursed for such costs out of the Security Deposit, or (ii) Tenant shall pay to Landlord the estimated cost for such removal and/or repair within five (5) days of Landlord’s demand and, upon completion of such removal and/or repair, Tenant shall pay to Landlord any difference between the actual cost for such removal and/or repair and the estimated cost previously paid to Landlord within five (5) days of Landlord’s demand. The foregoing payment obligation shall survive the expiration of this Lease.
ARTICLE 16

HOLDING OVER
If Tenant holds over after the expiration of the Lease Term hereof, with or without the express or implied consent of Landlord, such tenancy shall be at sufferance only, and shall not constitute a renewal hereof or an extension for any further term, and in such case Base Rent shall be payable at a monthly rate equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Base Rent applicable during the last rental period of the Lease Term under this Lease for the first two (2) months of such holdover; thereafter, Base Rent shall be payable at a monthly rate equal to twice the Base Rent applicable during the last rental period of the Lease Term under this Lease. Such tenancy shall be subject to every other term, covenant and agreement contained herein. Nothing contained in this Article 16 shall be construed as consent by Landlord to any holding over by Tenant, and Landlord expressly reserves the right to require Tenant to surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord as provided in this Lease upon the expiration or other termination of this Lease. The provisions of this Article 16 shall not be deemed to limit or constitute a waiver of any other rights or remedies of Landlord provided herein or at law. If Tenant fails to surrender the Premises upon the termination or expiration of this Lease, in addition to any other liabilities to Landlord accruing therefrom, Tenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from all loss, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) and liability resulting from such failure, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded upon such failure to surrender, and any lost profits to Landlord resulting therefrom.
ARTICLE 17

ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES
Within ten (10) business days following a request in writing by Landlord or Landlord’s mortgagee, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord or Landlord’s mortgagee, as the case may be, an estoppel certificate (and if required by Landlord or Landlord’s mortgagee, have such signature acknowledged), which, as submitted by Landlord or Landlord’s mortgagee, as the case may be, shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit F, attached hereto, (or such other commercially reasonable form as may be required by Landlord’s mortgagee or any prospective mortgagee or purchaser of the Real Property, or any portion thereof), indicating therein any exceptions thereto that may exist at that time, and shall also contain any other information reasonably requested by Landlord or Landlord’s mortgagee or prospective mortgagee. Tenant shall execute and deliver whatever other commercially reasonable instruments may be reasonably required for such purposes. Tenant’s failure to deliver such statement within such time shall, at the option of Landlord, constitute a default by Tenant under this Lease, and, in any event, shall be conclusive upon Tenant that the Lease is in full force and effect and without modification except as may be represented by Landlord in any certificate prepared by Landlord and delivered to Tenant for execution. Additionally, Tenant hereby recognizes that its failure to return such certificate in the time period specified above is likely to cause Landlord to incur costs, expenses and damages, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain, and thus, in addition to its other rights and remedies under this Lease, Landlord may, if Tenant fails to deliver such certificate within the time period specified above, assess Tenant a late fee of $500 per day to cover such costs and expenses, which the parties agree is a reasonable estimate thereof, and Tenant agrees to indemnify Landlord for any and all losses and damages Landlord may incur due to such failure.
ARTICLE 18

SUBORDINATION
This Lease is subject and subordinate to all present and future ground or underlying leases of the Real Property, the CC&R’s and the lien of any mortgages or trust deeds, now or hereafter in force against the Real Property and the

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -22-    
        



Building, if any, and to all renewals, extensions, modifications, consolidations and replacements thereof, and to all advances made or hereafter to be made upon the security of such mortgages or trust deeds, unless the holders of such mortgages or trust deeds, or the lessors under such ground lease or underlying leases, require in writing that this Lease be superior thereto. Landlord’s delivery to Tenant of commercially reasonable non-disturbance agreement(s) in favor of Tenant from any ground lessors, mortgage holders or lien holders of Landlord who later come into existence at any time prior to the expiration of the Lease Term shall be in consideration of, and a condition precedent to, Tenant’s obligations under this Article 18. Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days of request by Landlord, execute such further instruments or assurances as Landlord may reasonably deem necessary to evidence or confirm the subordination or superiority of this Lease to any such mortgages, trust deeds, ground leases or underlying leases including, without limitation, a Subordination, Nondisturbance and Attornment Agreement in such form substantially similar to Exhibit H attached hereto, or as may otherwise be reasonably required by Landlord’s mortgagee. Subject to Tenant’s receipt of the non-disturbance agreement(s) described above, Tenant covenants and agrees in the event any proceedings are brought for the foreclosure of any such mortgage, or if any ground or underlying lease is terminated, to attorn, without any deductions or set-offs whatsoever, to the purchaser upon any such foreclosure sale, or to the lessor of such ground or underlying lease, as the case may be, if so requested to do so by such purchaser or lessor, and to recognize such purchaser or lessor as the lessor under this Lease. If requested, Tenant shall execute and deliver a commercially reasonable instrument or instruments confirming its attornment as provided for herein; provided, however, that no such beneficiary or successor-in-interest shall be bound by any payment of Base Rent for more than one (1) month in advance, or any amendment or modification of this Lease made without the express written consent of such beneficiary where such consent is required under applicable loan documents. Tenant hereby irrevocably authorizes Landlord to execute and deliver in the name of Tenant any such instrument or instruments if Tenant fails to timely do so, provided that such authorization shall in no way relieve Tenant from the obligation of executing such instruments of subordination or superiority. Tenant waives the provisions of any current or future statute, rule or law which may give or purport to give Tenant any right or election to terminate or otherwise adversely affect this Lease and the obligations of the Tenant hereunder in the event of any foreclosure proceeding or sale. Within ten (10) business days following a request in writing by Landlord, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord a Subordination, Non-Disturbance and Attornment Agreement in the form of Exhibit H attached hereto and made a part hereof. Tenant’s failure to execute such documents within ten (10) business days after written demand shall constitute, at Landlord’s option, a default by Tenant under this Lease. Additionally, Tenant hereby recognizes that its failure to return such documents in the time period specified above is likely to cause Landlord to incur costs, expenses and damages, the exact amount of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain, and thus, in addition to its other rights and remedies under this Lease, Landlord may, if Tenant fails to deliver such documents within the time period specified above, a late fee of $500 per day to cover such costs and expenses, which the parties agree is a reasonable estimate thereof, and Tenant agrees to indemnify Landlord for any and all losses and damages Landlord may incur due to such failure.
Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a subordination, nondisturbance and attornment agreement (“SNDA”) from the current lender of the Building in a form reasonably acceptable to Landlord and Tenant. Tenant shall be responsible for all review, processing and any other fees charged by Landlord’s lender in connection with the SNDA.
ARTICLE 19

DEFAULTS; REMEDIES
19.1    Events of Default. The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute a default of this Lease by Tenant:
19.1.1    Any failure by Tenant to pay any installment of Base Rent or any installment of the Estimate due under Section 4.3.3 above (each, an “Estimate Payment”), or any part thereof, within three (3) calendar days after notice that the same is due or payable hereunder or any failure by Tenant to pay any Rent (other than Base Rent or the Estimate Payment) within five (5) business days after notice that the same is due or payable hereunder; provided, however, that any such notice shall be in lieu of, and not in addition to, any notice required under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 or any similar or successor of law; or
19.1.2    Except as provided in Section 19.1.1 above and Section 19.1.3 below, any failure by Tenant to observe or perform any other provision, covenant or condition of this Lease to be observed or performed by Tenant where such failure continues for thirty (30) days after written notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant; provided however, that any such notice shall be in lieu of, and not in addition to, any notice required under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 or any similar or successor law; and provided further that if the nature of such default is such that the same cannot reasonably be cured within thirty (30) day period, Tenant shall not be deemed to be in default if it diligently commences such cure within such period and thereafter diligently proceeds to rectify and cure said default; or
19.1.3    Tenant’s failure to observe or perform any of the provisions specified in Articles 5, 17 or 18 above within three (3) calendar days after notice from Landlord; provided, however, that any such notice shall be in lieu of, and not in addition, any notice required under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1161 or any similar or successor law; or

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -23-    
        



19.1.4    Tenant’s failure to occupy the Premises within ten (10) business days after the date of Substantial Completion (as defined in Exhibit C); or
19.1.5    Abandonment or vacation of more than fifty percent (50%) of the area of the Premises by Tenant. Abandonment is herein defined to include, but is not limited to, any absence by Tenant from the Premises for ten (10) business days or longer while in default of any provision of this Lease, and “vacation” is herein defined to mean the cessation of use of substantially all of the Premises by Tenant for its normal business operations for a period of ten (10) or more consecutive days); or
19.2    Remedies Upon Default. Upon the occurrence of any event of default by Tenant, Landlord shall have, in addition to any other remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity, the option to pursue any one or more of the following remedies, each and all of which shall be cumulative and nonexclusive, without any notice or demand whatsoever.
19.2.1    Terminate this Lease, in which event Tenant shall immediately surrender the Premises to Landlord, and if Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may, without prejudice to any other remedy which it may have for possession or arrearages in rent, enter upon and take possession of the Premises and expel or remove Tenant and any other person who may be occupying the Premises or any part thereof, without being liable for prosecution or any claim or damages therefor; and Landlord may recover from Tenant the following:
(i)    The worth at the time of award of any unpaid rent which has been earned at the time of such termination; plus
(ii)    The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iii)    The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the Lease Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iv)    Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant’s failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom; and
(v)    At Landlord’s election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by applicable law.
The term “rent” as used in this Section 19.2 shall be deemed to be and to mean all sums of every nature required to be paid by Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Lease, whether to Landlord or to others. As used in Paragraphs 19.2.1(i) and (ii), above, the “worth at the time of award” shall be computed by allowing interest at the rate set forth in Article 25 of this Lease, but in no case greater than the maximum amount of such interest permitted by law. As used in Paragraph 19.2.1(iii) above, the “worth at the time of award” shall be computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%).
19.2.2    Landlord shall have the remedy described in California Civil Code Section 1951.4 (lessor may continue lease in effect after lessee’s breach and abandonment and recover rent as it becomes due, if lessee has the right to sublet or assign, subject only to reasonable limitations). Accordingly, if Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease on account of any default by Tenant, Landlord may, from time to time, without terminating this Lease, enforce all of its rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover all rent as it becomes due.
19.3    Sublessees of Tenant. If Landlord elects to terminate this Lease on account of any default by Tenant, as set forth in this Article 19, Landlord shall have the right to terminate any and all subleases, licenses, concessions or other consensual arrangements for possession entered into by Tenant and affecting the Premises or may, in Landlord’s sole discretion, succeed to Tenant’s interest in such subleases, licenses, concessions or arrangements. In the event of Landlord’s election to succeed to Tenant’s interest in any such subleases, licenses, concessions or arrangements, Tenant shall, as of the date of notice by Landlord of such election, have no further right to or interest in the rent or other consideration receivable thereunder.
19.4    Form of Payment After Default. Following the occurrence of an event of a second default (as described in Section 19.1) by Tenant, Landlord shall have the right to require that any or all subsequent amounts paid by Tenant to Landlord hereunder, whether in the cure of the default in question or otherwise, be paid in the form of cash, money order, cashier’s or certified check drawn on an institution reasonably acceptable to Landlord, notwithstanding any prior practice of accepting payments in any different form. ***
19.5    Waiver of Default. No waiver by Landlord or Tenant of any violation or breach of any of the terms, provisions and covenants herein contained shall be deemed or construed to constitute a waiver of any other or later violation or breach of the same or any other of the terms, provisions, and covenants herein contained. Forbearance by Landlord in enforcement of one or more of the remedies herein provided upon an event of default shall not be deemed

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -24-    
        



or construed to constitute a waiver of such default. The acceptance of any Rent hereunder by Landlord following the occurrence of any default, whether or not known to Landlord, shall not be deemed a waiver of any such default, except only a default in the payment of the Rent so accepted.
19.6    Efforts to Relet. For the purposes of this Article 19, Tenant’s right to possession shall not be deemed to have been terminated by efforts of Landlord to relet the Premises, by its acts of maintenance or preservation with respect to the Premises, or by appointment of a receiver to protect Landlord’s interests hereunder. The foregoing enumeration is not exhaustive, but merely illustrative of acts which may be performed by Landlord without terminating Tenant’s right to possession.
19.7    Landlord Default. Landlord shall not be in default in the performance of any obligation required to be performed by Landlord under this Lease unless Landlord has failed to perform such obligation within thirty (30) days after the receipt of written notice from Tenant specifying in detail Landlord’s failure to perform; provided however, that if the nature of Landlord’s obligation is such that more than thirty (30) days are required for its performance, then Landlord shall not be deemed in default if it commences such performance within such thirty (30) day period and thereafter diligently pursues the same to completion. Upon any such uncured default by Landlord, Tenant may exercise any of its rights provided in law or at equity; provided, however: (a) Tenant shall have no right to offset or abate rent in the event of any default by Landlord under this Lease, except to the extent offset rights are specifically provided to Tenant in this Lease; (b) Tenant shall have no right to terminate this Lease; (c) Tenant’s rights and remedies hereunder shall be limited to the extent (i) Tenant has expressly waived in this Lease any of such rights or remedies and/or (ii) this Lease otherwise expressly limits Tenant’s rights or remedies; and (d) Landlord will not be liable for any consequential damages.
ARTICLE 20

COVENANT OF QUIET ENJOYMENT
Landlord covenants that Tenant, on paying the Rent, charges for services and other payments herein reserved and on keeping, observing and performing all the other terms, covenants, conditions, provisions and agreements herein contained on the part of Tenant to be kept, observed and performed, shall, during the Lease Term, peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Premises subject to the terms, covenants, conditions, provisions and agreements hereof without interference by any persons lawfully claiming by or through Landlord. The foregoing covenant is in lieu of any other covenant express or implied.
ARTICLE 21

SECURITY DEPOSIT
21.1    Concurrently with Tenant’s execution of this Lease, Tenant shall deposit with Landlord a security deposit (the “Security Deposit”) in the amount set forth in Section 10 of the Summary. The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as security for the faithful performance by Tenant of all the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease to be kept and performed by Tenant during the Lease Term. If Tenant defaults with respect to any provisions of this Lease, including, but not limited to, the provisions relating to the payment of Rent, Landlord may, but shall not be required to, use, apply or retain all or any part of the Security Deposit for the payment of any Rent or any other sum in default, or for the payment of any amount that Landlord may spend or become obligated to spend by reason of Tenant’s default, or to compensate Landlord for any other loss or damage that Landlord may suffer by reason of Tenant’s default. If any portion of the Security Deposit is so used or applied, Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after written demand therefor, deposit cash with Landlord in an amount sufficient to restore the Security Deposit to its original amount, and Tenant’s failure to do so shall be a default under this Lease. If Tenant shall fully and faithfully perform every provision of this Lease to be performed by it, the Security Deposit, or any balance thereof, shall be returned to Tenant, or, at Landlord’s option, to the last assignee of Tenant’s interest hereunder, within thirty (30) days following the expiration of the Lease Term. Tenant shall not be entitled to any interest on the Security Deposit. Tenant hereby waives the provisions of Section 1950.7 of the California Civil Code and any and all other provisions of law, now or hereafter in force, which provide that Landlord may claim from a security deposit only those sums reasonably necessary to remedy defaults in the payment of rent, to repair damage caused by Tenant or to clean the Premises, it being agreed that Landlord may, in addition, claim those sums specified in this Article 21 above, and all of Landlord’s damages under this Lease and California law including, but not limited to, any damages accruing upon termination of this Lease under Section 1951.2 of the California Civil Code and/or those sums reasonably necessary to compensate Landlord for any other loss or damage, foreseeable or unforeseeable, caused by the acts or omissions of Tenant or any officer, employee, agent, contractor or invitee of Tenant.

INTENTIONALLY OMITTED
ARTICLE 23

SIGNS

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -25-    
        



23.1    In General. Tenant shall be entitled, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, to Building-standard identification signage outside of Tenant’s Premises. The location, quality, design, style, and size of such signage shall subject to Landlord’s prior approval.
23.2    Exterior Building Signage. Subject to this Section 23.2 and provided that Tenant is not in default hereunder after any applicable notice and cure period, Tenant shall be entitled to install, at its sole cost and expense, one (1) building top sign on the exterior of the Building facing El Camino Real identifying the name of Tenant (the, “Signage”). Within six (6) months of the Lease Commencement Date, Tenant shall notify Landlord, in writing, as to whether or not Tenant will install the Signage in accordance with the provisions of this Section 23.2. Tenant’s failure to deliver such notice within such six (6) month period shall be deemed to be Tenant’s election not to install the Signage. If Tenant elects (or is deemed to have elected) not to install the Signage, the rights described in this Section 23.2 shall terminate and be of no further force and effect. The exact position of the Signage shall be designated by Landlord. The graphics, materials, size, color, design, lettering, lighting (if any) and specifications of the Signage (collectively, the “Signage Specifications”) shall be subject to the prior written approval of Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. In addition, the Signage and all Signage Specifications therefor shall be subject to Tenant’s receipt of all required governmental permits and approvals, shall be subject to all applicable governmental laws and ordinances and the CC&R’s affecting the Real Property. Tenant hereby acknowledges that, notwithstanding Landlord’s approval of the Signage and/or the Signage Specifications therefor, Landlord has made no representations or warranty to Tenant with respect to the probability of obtaining such approvals and permits. In the event Tenant does not receive the necessary permits and approvals for the Signage, Tenant’s and Landlord’s rights and obligations under the remaining provisions of this Lease shall not be affected. The cost of installation of the Signage, as well as all costs of design and construction of such Signage and all other costs associated with such Signage, including, without limitation, permits, maintenance and repair, shall be the sole responsibility of Tenant. The rights to the Signage shall be personal to the Original Tenant, any Affiliated Assignee, or any other Transferee of Tenant’s entire interest in this Lease in connection with a Transfer of this Lease to which Landlord consents pursuant to Article 14 above and may not otherwise be transferred. Should the Signage require maintenance or repairs as determined in Landlord’s reasonable judgment, Landlord shall have the right to provide written notice thereof to Tenant and Tenant shall cause such repairs and/or maintenance to be performed within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice from Landlord at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. Should Tenant fail to perform such maintenance and repairs within the period described in the immediately preceding sentence, Landlord shall have the right to cause such work to be performed and to charge Tenant, as Additional Rent, for the cost of such work. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant shall cause any damage resulting from such removal to be repaired. If Tenant fails to remove the Signage and to repair the Building as provided in the immediately preceding sentence within thirty (30) days following the expiration or early termination of this Lease, then Landlord may perform such work, and all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in so performing such work shall be reimbursed by Tenant to Landlord within ten (10) business days after Tenant’s receipt of invoice therefor. The immediately preceding sentence shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
Should the name of the Original Tenant change, or should this Lease be assigned to an Affiliated Assignee, then the Signage may be modified at Tenant’s sole cost and expense to reflect the new name, provided that the new name is reasonably acceptable to Landlord, and without limiting other reasonable grounds for which Landlord may disapprove the new name, Landlord may disapprove the new name if it (i) relates to an entity that is of a character or reputation, or associated with a political orientation or a faction, that is inconsistent with the quality of the Building or would otherwise reasonably offend an institutional landlord of an office project comparable to the Building, taking into consideration the level and visibility of such signage or (ii) causes Landlord to be in default under any lease or license with another tenant of the Real Property.
23.3    Prohibited Signage and Other Items. Any signs, notices, logos, pictures, names or advertisements which are installed and that have not been individually approved by Landlord may be removed without notice by Landlord at the sole expense of Tenant. Except as provided in this Article 23, Tenant may not install any signs on the exterior or roof of the Building or the common areas of the Building or the Real Property. Any signs, window coverings, or blinds (even if the same are located behind the Landlord approved window coverings for the Building), or other items visible from the exterior of the Premises or Building are subject to the prior approval of Landlord, in its sole discretion.
ARTICLE 24

COMPLIANCE WITH LAW
24.1    Tenant’s Obligations. Tenant shall not do anything or knowingly permit anything to be done in or about the Premises which will in any way conflict with any law, statute, ordinance or other governmental rule, regulation or requirement (collectively, “Laws”), any provisions set forth in the CC&R’s now in force or which may hereafter be enacted or promulgated, or any code, ordinances and requirements of any fire insurance underwriters or rating bureaus now in force or which may hereafter be enacted or promulgated. At its sole cost and expense, Tenant shall promptly comply with all such governmental measures; however, the making of structural changes or changes to the Building’s life safety system shall be made in accordance with Section 24.2 below, provided however, for any such changes that are required due to a breach of any of Tenant’s obligations hereunder, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for such expense as Additional Rent within thirty (30) days following receipt of an invoice therefore and Tenant shall pay all out-of-pocket fees, costs, expenses, fines, penalties and damages imposed upon Landlord by reason of or arising

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -26-    
        



out of Tenant’s failure to fully and promptly comply with and observe the provision of this Section 24. Where Tenant’s compliance as required by this Section 24 necessitates action by Tenant for which this Lease requires Landlord’s consent, Tenant shall obtain such consent before taking such actions. Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days after receipt of Landlord’s written request, provide Landlord with copies of all permits and other documents, and other information specifically requested by Landlord evidencing Tenant’s compliance with any applicable laws or requirements specified by Landlord, and shall promptly upon receipt of written notice by Tenant, notify Landlord in writing (and immediately provide to Landlord copies of any documents involved) of any threatened or actual claim, notice, citation, warning, complaint or report pertaining to or involving the failure of Tenant or the Premises to comply with any applicable laws or requirements. Tenant shall use reasonable efforts to cause its employees and invitees to comply with Laws.
24.2    Landlord’s Obligations. Landlord warrants that, as of Landlord’s delivery of the Premises to Tenant, the Tenant Improvements shall be in compliance with all laws applicable thereto as of the issuance of the building permits therefor, and Landlord shall, at its sole cost and expense and as Tenant’s sole remedy, promptly correct any breach of such warranty promptly following receipt of written notice thereof from Tenant. Landlord shall be responsible, as part of Operating Expenses to the extent permitted under Article 4 above, for making all alterations to the following portions of the Premises and Building required by Laws: (i) structural portions of the Premises but not including any Alterations installed by or at the request of Tenant, (ii) all Building systems, equipment and appurtenances located within the Premises except those serving the Premises exclusively, and (iii) those portions of the Building located outside the Premises; provided, however, Landlord shall not be responsible for the costs incurred to make alterations to any such portions of the Premises and Building described in clause (i), (ii) or (iii) above to the extent such alterations are necessary due to the installation of Alterations to the Premises by or at the request of Tenant or as a result of Tenant’s particular use of the Premises and Tenant shall, within thirty (30) days of Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s invoice therefor, reimburse Landlord for all such costs. Except for Landlord’s obligations described in the immediately preceding sentence and elsewhere in this Lease, and subject to Section 24.1 above, Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, be responsible for compliance with all Laws affecting the Premises, including the making of all required alterations thereto. As of the date of this Lease, the Premises and Real Property have not been inspected by a Certified Access Specialist. Tenant hereby acknowledges that Landlord has certain energy usage disclosure requirements under California law and, in connection therewith, Tenant agrees (i) to cooperate with Landlord, as reasonably necessary, in connection with Landlord’s compliance with such requirements, and (ii) that all out-of-pocket costs incurred by Landlord in connection with such compliance may be included in Operating Expenses.
ARTICLE 25    

LATE CHARGES
If any installment of Base Rent or the Estimate Payment any other sum due from Tenant shall not be received by Landlord or Landlord’s designee within three (3) days after said amount is due or if any other Rent payment shall not be received by Landlord or Landlord’s designee within five (5) business days after said amount is due, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of the amount due plus any attorneys’ and processing and service fees incurred by Landlord by reason of Tenant’s failure to pay Rent and/or other charges when due hereunder. The late charge shall be deemed Additional Rent and the right to require it shall be in addition to all of Landlord’s other rights and remedies hereunder or at law and shall not be construed as liquidated damages or as limiting Landlord’s remedies in any manner. In addition to the late charge described above, any Rent or other amounts owing hereunder which are not paid when due shall thereafter bear interest until paid at a rate equal to the greater of (i) the prime rate established from time to time by Wells Fargo Bank (or if Wells Fargo ceases to exist or to publish such a rate, then the rate published by the largest federally chartered banking institution with a branch in California) plus five percent (5%) per annum, and (ii) nine percent (9%) per annum, provided that in no case shall such rate be higher than the highest rate permitted by applicable law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not be obligated to pay the foregoing late charge and interest charge for the first (1st) failure to timely pay any sum required to be paid under this Lease so long as Tenant pays such overdue sum within ten (10) days of Landlord's demand for the same.
ARTICLE 26

LANDLORD’S RIGHT TO CURE DEFAULT
If Tenant shall fail to perform any of its obligations under this Lease, within the time periods for performance required by the terms of this Lease, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, after reasonable prior notice to Tenant, make any such payment or perform any such act on Tenant’s part without waiving its right based upon any default of Tenant and without releasing Tenant from any obligations hereunder. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within ten (10) business days after the delivery by Landlord to Tenant of statement therefore, an amount equal to the reasonable, out-of-pocket expenditures reasonably made by Landlord in connection with the remedying by Landlord of Tenant’s defaults pursuant to the provisions of this Article 26.
ARTICLE 27

ENTRY BY LANDLORD

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -27-    
        



Landlord reserves the right at all reasonable times during normal business hours and upon twenty-four (24) hours’ prior notice to the Tenant, with a Tenant escort if provided by Tenant at the time of such entry, to enter the Premises to (i) inspect them; (ii) show the Premises to an existing mortgagee, prospective purchasers or mortgagees, or to the ground or underlying lessors; (iii) post notices of nonresponsibility; or (iv) alter, improve or repair the Premises or the Building if necessary to comply with current building codes or other applicable laws, or for structural alterations, repairs or improvements to the Building. Landlord also reserves the right at all reasonable times and upon reasonable notice to Tenant to enter the Premises during any time Tenant is in default under the Lease and/or during the last nine (9) months of the Lease Term (or during the last nine (9) months of the Option Term) to show the Premises to prospective tenants. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 27, Landlord may enter the Premises at any time to (A) perform services required of Landlord; (B) take possession due to any breach of this Lease in the manner provided herein; and (C) perform any covenants of Tenant which Tenant fails to perform. Any such entries shall be without the abatement of Rent and shall include the right to take such reasonable steps as required to accomplish the stated purposes. Tenant hereby waives any claims for damages or for any injuries or inconvenience to or interference with Tenant’s business, lost profits, any loss of occupancy or quiet enjoyment of the Premises, and any other loss occasioned thereby, except for damage to Tenant's personal property, furniture and equipment or injury to persons caused by Landlord's negligence or willful misconduct while exercising its rights under this Article 27, but subject to the waivers set forth in Section 10.5 above. For each of the above purposes, Landlord shall at all times have a key with which to unlock all the doors in the Premises, excluding Tenant’s vaults, safes and special security areas designated in advance by Tenant (in which case Landlord shall not provide janitorial service to such secure areas). In an emergency, Landlord shall have the right to use any means that Landlord may deem proper to open the doors in and to the Premises. Any entry into the Premises in the manner hereinbefore described shall not be deemed to be a forcible or unlawful entry into, or a detainer of, the Premises, or an actual or constructive eviction of Tenant from any portion of the Premises. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with Tenant’s business in connection with any such entry.
ARTICLE 28

TENANT PARKING
Provided Tenant is not in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period, Tenant shall be entitled to rent, on a monthly basis throughout the Lease Term, the number of parking passes set forth in Section 11 of the Summary to park standard sized vehicles in the Parking Facilities. Tenant shall pay to Landlord for parking passes on a monthly basis the prevailing rate charged by Landlord for such parking passes; provided Tenant shall not be charged for such parking passes during the initial Lease Term or the Option Term. Tenant’s continued right to use the parking passes is conditioned upon Tenant abiding by all Rules and Regulations which are prescribed from time to time for the orderly operation and use of the Parking Facilities and upon Tenant’s cooperation in seeing that Tenant’s employees and visitors also comply with such Rules and Regulations. Landlord specifically reserves the right to (i) change the size, configuration, design, layout, location and all other aspects of the Parking Facilities, provided that (1) unless required to comply with applicable Laws, (A) the number of parking spaces does not decrease, and (B) the distance of such parking spaces form the Premises does not materially increase, and/or (2) unless permitted under applicable law, the size of such parking spaces does not decrease, and/or (ii) perform repairs to the Parking Facilities, and Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord may, without incurring any liability to Tenant and without any abatement of Rent under this Lease, from time to time, temporarily close-off or restrict access to the Parking Facilities, or relocate Tenant’s parking passes to other parking structures and/or surface parking areas within a reasonable distance of the Premises, for purposes of permitting or facilitating any such construction, alteration, improvements or repairs with respect to the Parking Facilities or to accommodate or facilitate renovation, alteration, construction or other modification of other improvements or structures located on the Real Property; provided, however, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenant’s or its employees’ or invitees’ use of the Parking Facilities or ingress or egress to the Premises or the adjacent public streets from the Parking Facilities. Landlord may delegate its responsibilities hereunder to a parking operator in which case such parking operator shall have all the rights of control attributed hereby to the Landlord and such owner. The parking rates charged by Landlord for Tenant’s parking passes (if applicable) shall be exclusive of any parking tax or other charges imposed by governmental authorities in connection with the use of such parking, which taxes and/or charges shall be paid directly by Tenant or the parking users, or, if directly imposed against Landlord, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all such taxes and/or charges concurrently with its payment of the parking rates described herein.
ARTICLE 29

29.5    Transfer of Landlord’s Interest. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has the right to transfer all or any portion of its interest in the Real Property and Building and in this Lease, and Tenant agrees that in the event of any such transfer, and the transferee’s written assumption of all future rights and obligations of Landlord under this Lease and the transfer of the Security Deposit form Landlord to such transferee, Landlord shall automatically be released from all remaining liability under this Lease and Tenant agrees to look solely to such transferee for the performance of Landlord’s obligations hereunder after the date of transfer.

(i)    The liability of each of the parties comprising Partnership Tenant shall be joint and several.

(iii)    Any bills, statements, notices, demands, requests or other communications given to Partnership Tenant or to any of the parties comprising Partnership Tenant shall be deemed given to Partnership Tenant and to all such parties and shall be binding upon Partnership Tenant and all such parties.

29.8    Captions. The captions of Articles and Sections are for convenience only and shall not be deemed to limit, construe, affect or alter the meaning of such Articles and Sections.
29.9    Relationship of Parties.

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -29-    
        



Rent nor any act of the parties hereto shall be deemed to create any relationship between Landlord and Tenant other than the relationship of landlord and tenant.
29.10    Application of Payments.

29.13    No Warranty. In executing and delivering this Lease, Tenant has not relied on any representation, including, but not limited to, any representation whatsoever as to the amount of any item comprising Additional Rent or the amount of the Additional Rent in the aggregate or that Landlord is furnishing the same services to other tenants, on the same level or on the same basis, except for any representations which are expressly provided in this Lease.
29.14    Landlord Exculpation. It is expressly understood and agreed that notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, the liability of Landlord and the Landlord Parties hereunder (including any successor landlord) and any recourse by Tenant against Landlord or the Landlord Parties shall be limited solely and exclusively to an amount which is equal to the lesser of (a) the equity interest of Landlord in the Building and the rents and profits thereof, or (b) the equity interest Landlord would have in the Building if the Building was encumbered by third-party debt in an amount equal to eighty percent (80%) of the value of the Building (as such value is determined by Landlord) and the rents and profits thereof, and neither Landlord, nor any of the Landlord Parties shall have any personal liability therefor, and Tenant hereby expressly waives and releases such personal liability on behalf of itself and all persons claiming by, through or under Tenant.
29.15    Entire Agreement. It is understood and acknowledged that there are no oral agreements between the parties hereto affecting this Lease and this Lease supersedes and cancels any and all previous negotiations, arrangements, brochures, agreements and understandings, if any, between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter thereof, and none thereof shall be used to interpret or construe this Lease. This Lease and any side letter or separate agreement executed by Landlord and Tenant in connection with this Lease and dated of even date herewith contain all of the terms, covenants, conditions, warranties and agreements of the parties relating in any manner to the rental, use and occupancy of the Premises, shall be considered to be the only agreement between the parties hereto and their representatives and agents, and none of the terms, covenants, conditions or provisions of this Lease can be modified, deleted or added to except in writing signed by the parties hereto. All negotiations and oral agreements acceptable to both parties have been merged into and are included herein.
29.16    Right to Lease. Landlord reserves the absolute right to effect such other tenancies in the Real Property as Landlord in the exercise of its sole business judgment shall determine. Tenant does not rely on the fact, nor does Landlord represent, that any specific tenant or type or number of tenants shall, during the Lease Term, occupy any space in the Real Property.
29.17    Force Majeure. Any prevention, delay or stoppage due to strikes, lockouts, labor disputes, acts of God, inability to obtain services, labor, or materials or reasonable substitutes therefor, governmental actions, civil commotions, acts of war and terrorist attacks, fire or other casualty, and other causes beyond the reasonable control of the party obligated to perform (collectively, the “Force Majeure”), except with respect to the obligations imposed with regard to Rent and other charges to be paid pursuant to this Lease, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, shall excuse the performance of such party for a period equal to any such prevention, delay or stoppage and, therefore, if this Lease specifies a time period for performance of an obligation of either party, that time period shall be extended by the period of any delay in such party’s performance caused by a Force Majeure.
29.18    Waiver of Redemption By Tenant. Tenant hereby waives for Tenant and for all those claiming under Tenant all rights now or hereafter existing to redeem by order or judgment of any court or by any legal process or writ, Tenant’s right of occupancy of the premises after any termination of this Lease.

All notices, demands, statements or communications (collectively, “Notices”) given or required to be given by either party to the other hereunder shall be in writing, shall be sent by United States certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, nationally recognized courier service (e.g., Federal Express) for next-day delivery or delivered personally (i) to Tenant at the appropriate address set forth in Section 5 of the Summary, or to such other place as Tenant may from time to time designate in a Notice to Landlord; or (ii) to Landlord at the addresses set forth in Section 3 of the Summary, or to such other firm or to such other place as Landlord may from time to time designate in a Notice to Tenant. Any Notice will be deemed given on the date two (2) business days after it is mailed as provided in this Section 29.19 or upon the date personal delivery or next day courier delivery is made. If Tenant is notified of the identity and address of Landlord’s mortgagee or ground or underlying lessor, Tenant shall give to such mortgagee or ground or underlying lessor written notice of any default by Landlord under the terms

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -30-    
        



of this Lease by registered or certified mail, and such mortgagee or ground or underlying lessor shall be given a reasonable opportunity to cure such default prior to Tenant’s exercising any remedy available to Tenant.

29.21    Attorneys’ Fees. If either party commences litigation against the other for the specific performance of this Lease, for damages for the breach hereof or otherwise for enforcement of any remedy hereunder, the parties hereto agree, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party such costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees as may have been incurred, including any and all costs incurred in enforcing, perfecting and executing such judgment.
29.22    Governing Law. This Lease shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California.
29.23    Submission of Lease. Submission of this instrument for examination or signature by Tenant does not constitute a reservation of or an option for lease, and it is not effective as a lease or otherwise until execution and delivery by both Landlord and Tenant.
29.24    Brokers. Landlord and Tenant hereby warrant to each other that they have had no dealings with any real estate broker or agent in connection with the negotiation of this Lease, excepting only the real estate brokers or agents specified in Section 12 of the Summary (the “Brokers”), and that they know of no other real estate broker or agent who is entitled to a commission in connection with this Lease. Each party agrees to indemnify and defend the other party against and hold the other party harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, lawsuits, judgments, and costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) with respect to any leasing commission or equivalent compensation alleged to be owing on account of the indemnifying party’s dealings with any real estate broker or agent other than the Brokers. Landlord shall pay Landlord’s broker specified in the Lease Summary a commission pursuant to a separate written agreement.
29.25    Intentionally Omitted.
29.26    Building and Real Property Name and Signage. Landlord shall have the right at any time to change the name of the Building and/or the Real Property and to install, affix and maintain any and all signs on the exterior and on the interior of the Building and/or Real Property as Landlord may, in Landlord’s sole discretion, desire. Tenant shall not use the name of the Building and/or Real Property or use pictures or illustrations of the Building and/or Real Property in advertising or other publicity, without the prior written consent of Landlord.
29.27    Transportation Management. Tenant shall fully comply with all reasonable and non-discriminatory present or future programs intended to manage parking, transportation or traffic in and around the Building and/or Real Property, provided that such programs do not materially prejudice Tenant or its operations.
29.28    Health and Safety. If at any time during the Lease Term it is determined by competent authority of any governmental entity having jurisdiction over the Premises, the Real Property, or any portion thereof, that any material, substance, equipment or system must be installed in or removed from the Premises, the Real Property or any portion thereof, in order to protect or maintain the health or safety of those entering upon or working within the Premises, the Real Property or any portion thereof, then Landlord may make such installation or removal and if so, the cost (amortized over its reasonable life) of such installation or removal shall be included in Operating Expenses, unless such installation or removal requirement is triggered by Tenant’s specific use or alterations of the Premises, and/or the neglect, fault or default of Tenant, its agents, employees, customers or contractors (in which case Tenant shall be solely responsible for same at Tenant’s sole cost and expense).
29.29    Confidentiality. Tenant acknowledges that the content of this Lease and any related documents are confidential information. Tenant shall keep such confidential information strictly confidential and shall not disclose such confidential information to any person or entity other than Tenant’s financial, and legal consultants.
29.30    Waiver of Jury Trial; Dispute Resolution by Reference. Landlord and Tenant each acknowledges that it is aware of and has had the advice of counsel of its choice with respect to its rights to trial by jury, and, to the extent enforceable under California law, each party does hereby expressly and knowingly waive and release all such rights to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either party hereto against the other on any matters whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with this Lease, Tenant’s use or occupancy of the Premises and/or any claim of injury or damage.
In the event that the jury waiver provisions of this Section 29.30 are not enforceable under California law, then the following provisions of this Section 29.30 shall apply:
Except as to actions for unlawful or forcible detainer or the prejudgment remedy of attachment, any action, proceeding or counterclaim by either party hereto against the other arising out of or in any way connected with this

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -31-    
        



Lease, Tenant’s use or occupancy of the Premises and/or any claim of injury or damage, shall be heard and resolved by a referee under the provisions of the California Code of Civil Procedure, Sections 638 - 645.1, inclusive (as may be amended, or any successor statute(s) thereto). The venue shall be in the county of the Premises.
Within ten (10) days of receipt by any party of a written request to resolve any dispute or controversy pursuant to this Section 29.30, the parties shall agree upon a single referee. If the parties are unable to agree upon a referee within such ten (10) day period, then any party may file a lawsuit to obtain appointment of a referee.
The parties shall have all rights to discovery, judicial and appellate review, and application of California laws including rules of evidence, civil procedure and substantive laws, and to present their case, including pre-trial motions, to the same extent as to a trial court judge. However, the parties hereby waive any right to seek or recover punitive damages, and any other damages not permitted by the express provisions of this Lease. A stenographic record of all proceedings and hearings before the referee shall be made unless expressly waived by the parties. The referee’s decision shall, at a minimum, contain findings of fact and conclusions of law.
29.31    Landlord Renovations. It is specifically understood and agreed that Landlord has no obligation and has made no promises to alter, remodel, improve, renovate, repair or decorate the Premises, Project, or any part thereof and that no representations respecting the condition of the Premises or the Project have been made by Landlord to Tenant except as specifically set forth herein or in this Lease or the Tenant Work Letter. However, Tenant acknowledges that Landlord may during the Lease Term renovate, improve, alter, or modify (collectively, the “Renovations”) the Building, Premises, and/or Real Property, including without limitation the Parking Facilities, Common Areas, systems and equipment, roof, and structural portions of the same. In connection with such Renovations, Landlord may, among other things, erect scaffolding or other necessary structures in the Building and/or the Real Property, limit or eliminate access to portions of the Real Property, including portions of the Common Areas, or perform work in the Building and/or the Real Property, which work may create noise, dust or leave debris in the Building and/or the Real Property. In all such Renovations, Landlord will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any interference with Tenant’s permitted business operations from the Premises. Tenant hereby agrees that such Renovations and Landlord’s actions in connection with such Renovations shall in no way constitute a constructive eviction of Tenant nor entitle Tenant to any abatement of Rent nor shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for any interference with Tenant’s business arising from the Renovations.
29.32    Financial Statements. Upon ten (10) days prior written request from Landlord (which Landlord may make at any time during the Term but no more often that two (2) times in any calendar year), Tenant shall deliver to Landlord (a) a current financial statement of Tenant and any guarantor of this Lease, and (b) financial statements of Tenant and such guarantor for the two (2) years prior to the current financial statement year. Such statements shall be prepared in accordance with generally acceptable accounting principles and certified as true in all material respects by Tenant (if Tenant is an individual) or by an authorized officer or member/manager of Tenant (if Tenant is a corporation or limited liability company) or a general partner of Tenant (if Tenant is a partnership). Landlord agrees that it shall not disclose to any third party the information contained in Tenant’s financial statements; provided, however, that (i) such information was not previously disclosed by Tenant to such third party or to the public generally, and (ii) nothing contained herein shall restrict Landlord from disclosing such information as may be required by law or to its accountants, attorneys, bona-fide prospective purchasers or current or prospective mortgagees. Landlord shall incur no liability for the non-negligent disclosure of any such information.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if (i) Tenant is required to file reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (ii) Tenant is current in its reporting obligations thereunder, and (iii) the reports required by such act are available to the public, including Landlord, then Tenant shall not be obligated to provide Landlord with financial statements pursuant to this Section 29.32.
29.33    Subordination of Landlord’s Lien. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, if Tenant desires to grant or assign a mortgage or other security interest secured by Tenant's personal property located in the Premises and requests that Landlord execute a lien agreement in connection therewith, Landlord shall, subject to Landlord's lender's approval, either waive or subordinate its lien rights to the rights of Tenant's lender pursuant to a commercially reasonable form. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for Landlord's out-of-pocket costs to review and execute such agreement, in an amount not to exceed $2,000.00 per agreement request.
29.34    Communication Equipment. Subject to all laws, Tenant and Tenant’s contractors (which shall first be reasonably approved by Landlord) shall have the right and access to install, repair, replace, remove, operate and maintain up to five (5) satellite dishes or other similar devices, such as antennae (and if Tenant requires more than five (5) satellite dishes or similar devices, the same shall be subject to Landlord’s reasonable approval), together with all cable, wiring, conduits and related equipment (collectively, “Communication Equipment”), for the purpose of receiving radio, television, computer, telephone or other communication signals to and from the Premises in connection with Tenant’s use of the Premises, at a location on the roof of the Building designated by Landlord and reasonably acceptable to Tenant. Such use of the roof for Communication Equipment shall be at no additional charge to Tenant during the Lease Term and any extensions thereof. Tenant shall ensure that any Communication Equipment installed by Tenant does not unreasonably interfere with any equipment installed on the roof of the Building prior to Tenant’s installation of its Communication Equipment. Tenant shall retain Landlord’s designated roofing contractor (who shall be reasonably acceptable to Tenant) to make any necessary penetrations and associated repairs to the roof in order to preserve

P:00816539-5:12107.019     -32-    
        



Landlord’s roof warranty. Tenant’s installation and operation of the Communication Equipment shall be governed by the following terms and conditions:
29.34.1    Tenant’s right to install, replace, repair, remove, operate and maintain the Communication Equipment shall be subject to all governmental laws, rules and regulations and Landlord makes no representation that such laws, rules and regulations permit such installation and operation. Further, Tenant’s Communication Equipment shall not cause the Building rooftop to violate any laws, rules and/or regulations and Tenant shall be responsible for ensuring that its use does not cause such a violation.
29.34.2    All plans and specifications for the Communication Equipment shall be subject to Landlord’s reasonable approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
29.34.3    All costs of installation, operation and maintenance of the Communication Equipment and any necessary related equipment (including, without limitation, costs of obtaining any necessary permits and connections to the Building’s electrical system) shall be borne by Tenant. Landlord agrees to cooperate (at no expense to Landlord) with Tenant in obtaining such permits and connections.
29.34.4    It is expressly understood that Landlord retains the right to use the roof of the Building for any purpose whatsoever provided that Landlord shall not unduly interfere with Tenant’s use of the Communication Equipment.
29.34.5    Tenant shall use the Communication Equipment so as not to cause any undue interference or danger to other tenants in the Building or with any other tenant’s or licensee’s communication equipment installed on the roof prior to Tenant’s installation of its Communication Equipment, and not to damage the Building or interfere with the normal operation of the Building.
29.34.6    Landlord shall not have any obligations with respect to the Communication Equipment. Landlord makes no representation that the Communication Equipment will be able to receive or transmit communication signals without interference or disturbance (whether or not by reason of the installation or use of similar equipment by others on the roof of the Building) and Tenant agrees that Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant therefor.
29.34.7    Tenant shall (i) be solely responsible for any damage caused as a result of the Communication Equipment, (ii) promptly pay any tax, license or permit fees charged pursuant to any laws or regulations in connection with the installation, maintenance or use of the Communication Equipment and comply with all precautions and safeguards recommended by all governmental authorities, and (iii) be responsible for any necessary repairs, replacements to or maintenance of the Communication Equipment.
29.34.8    The Communication Equipment shall remain the sole property of Tenant. Tenant shall remove the Communication Equipment and related equipment at Tenant’s sole cost and expense upon the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease or upon the imposition of any governmental law or regulation which may require removal, and shall repair the Building upon such removal to the extent required by such work of removal. If Tenant fails to remove the Communication Equipment and repair the Building within thirty (30) days after the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Landlord may do so at Tenant’s expense. The provisions of this Section 29.33.8 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
29.34.9    The area occupied by the Communication Equipment shall be deemed to constitute a portion of the Premises for purposes of Article 10 of this Lease.
29.34.10    Tenant shall be entitled, at no additional charge, to use its pro rata share of the existing risers of the Building to install its Communication Equipment; provided that Landlord makes no representation regarding the capacity of such risers. In the event additional capacity is needed, Tenant shall have the right to provide such additional capacity, subject to Landlord’s prior written approval of the methods and manner of providing such additional capacity, which consent may be withheld in Landlord’s reasonable discretion.
29.34.11    Tenant hereby agrees to comply with all regulations, laws and codes applicable to the use of its Communication Equipment, including, without limitation, FCC and OSHA regulations relating to radio frequency (“RF”) emissions.

Construction Drawings, then Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, shall, as part of its disapproval notice, (i) approve those portions which are acceptable, and (ii) disapprove those portions which are not acceptable, specifying the reasons for such disapproval and describing the changes the disapproving party requests for each item disapproved, provided Tenant may only disapprove the T.I. Construction Drawings if same materially deviates from the Preliminary Plans referenced in Section 1.3.6.1 of this Tenant Work Letter above. Landlord’s or Tenant’s failure

EXHIBIT C    
-1-    



to deliver its approval or disapproval notice within such five (5) business day period shall be deemed such party’s approval of the T.I. Construction Drawings so submitted. Within ten (10) business days following
either party’s disapproval of any portion of the T.I. Construction Drawings, Landlord shall have the T.I. Construction Drawings revised to incorporate the changes requested by the disapproving party and deliver the revised T.I. Construction Drawings to both Landlord and Tenant. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord is relying on Tenant’s timely approval of the T.I. Construction Drawings in order to allow Landlord to attempt to deliver the Premises on the Estimated Commencement Date. Accordingly, for each day which passes after the date due, but before Tenant delivers, the approved Space Plan, approved Preliminary Pricing Plan, the approved T.I. Construction Drawings or any approved revisions to T.I. Construction Drawings, shall constitute a Tenant Delay (as such term is defined hereinbelow).
1.3.6.3    Ownership. Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord all of Tenant’s present and future right, title and interest in and to the T.I. Plans and Specifications, including, without limitation, the Space Plan, the Preliminary Pricing Plan and the T.I. Construction Drawings.
1.4    Building Permits. Landlord shall be responsible for seeking governmental approvals necessary for the construction of the Tenant Improvements, including a building permit. Landlord shall pay for such approvals and permits out of the Tenant Improvement Allowance. If a change to the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications is required by any governmental authority as a condition to obtaining a building permit or other approval, such change shall be made to the T.I. Plans and Specifications and deemed to have been approved by Tenant. Any increase in construction cost due to such change shall be charged to the Tenant Improvement Allowance, or, if the Estimated Construction Costs exceeds the Tenant Improvement Allowance, then such excess shall be deemed an Excess Cost (as such term is defined herein) to be paid by Tenant, however, the same shall be due and payable by Tenant within ten (10) business days of Landlord’s request therefor for purposes of timely obtaining the applicable building permit or other approval(s). The parties shall cooperate with each other as may be reasonably necessary to obtain the building permit and any and all other approvals, as appropriate. Landlord shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the necessary building permits and approvals for the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications by the date which is four (4) weeks following Landlord’s approval of the final approved T.I. Construction Drawings. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord is relying upon the timely acquisition of the Tenant Improvements building permits and approvals so that Landlord may attempt to Substantially Complete the Tenant Improvements by the Estimated Commencement Date.
1.5    Condition of Premises; Limitation. Except as may be expressly provided in the Lease, Landlord makes no express or implied warranties or representations to Tenant with regard to the Premises or the Real Property. However, Landlord shall deliver the Premises in the condition required by the Lease and this Tenant Work Letter.
1.6    Approvals. After approval of the T.I. Plans and Specifications as provided herein, no changes, modifications or alterations may be made thereto by Landlord or Tenant without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided, however, that if any changes are required (i) by any governmental agency with jurisdiction over the Building, (ii) as a result of minor field conditions, or (iii) to substitute substantially equivalent materials (in terms of quality of material, aesthetics and durability) to avoid unanticipated delays, strikes or shortages, then Landlord shall be authorized to make such changes without Tenant’s consent, so long as the cost of such changes do no exceed $10,000.00 per item or $45,000.00 in the aggregate. The costs of any such changes to the T.I. Plans and Specifications are to be included within the Landlord Costs (as such term is defined below) with any excess to be paid by Tenant as Excess Costs (defined below). Any changes to the T.I. Plans and Specifications after approval thereof, other than any changes as may be made by Landlord pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) and/or (iii) above in this Section 1.6, shall constitute a Change Order (as such term is defined below).
1.7    Costs. All out-of-pocket costs and fees associated with the preparation of the T.I. Plans and Specifications, including, without limitation, all consultant or subcontractor design fees (exclusive of above standard building finishes and Tenant requested interior design fees which shall be an Additional Cost (as such term is defined in Section 3.3.4 below)) shall be paid for out of the Tenant Improvement Allowance in accordance with Section 3 below, except as may be expressly set forth otherwise herein. The T.I. Construction Drawings shall be prepared by Designcorp.
1.8    SDG&E Savings by Design. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord desires to participate in the San Diego Gas and Electric (“SDG&E”) Savings by Design program (“Program”). If Landlord complies with certain energy efficient design and building standards under the Program, such compliance will result in an energy cost savings with respect to the Building and/or Real Property (such cost savings may be in the form of reduced utility charges, utility charge reimbursements and/or direct payments from SDG&E to Landlord). As a material part of the consideration to Landlord for entering into the Lease, Tenant agrees that all applicable Program standards will be included within the design and specifications for the Tenant Improvements. However, if Tenant requests a Premises design which does not conform with all applicable Program standards (whether due to the unique nature of the Premises design concept, space planning or any other reason), then Tenant shall pay to Landlord that amount equal to the aggregate of the cost savings and SDG&E payments which would have been realized by and/or payable to Landlord but for such noncompliance. Tenant acknowledges that the noncompliance of the Premises with the Program standards may result in a noncompliance of the entire Building or the entire Real Property, and thus, may result in a significant diminution in cost savings to Landlord and/or payments from SDG&E to Landlord relative to the cost savings and payments Landlord otherwise would have realized or received pursuant to the Program. Landlord shall have the right to bill Tenant for such amounts (or estimate thereof), which billings shall include reasonable detail as to Landlord’s calculation

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT C    
-2-    



of such amounts. Within ten (10) business days of Tenant’s receipt of each such billing, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the full amount set forth in such billing. Landlord’s determination of such amounts may be calculated or estimated by Landlord in any commercially reasonable manner and may include amounts of future cost savings diminution and future payments for SDG&E whether or not the same has accrued or occurred at the time of such billing. Absence manifest material error, such billings shall be conclusive as to Tenant. This payment obligation of Tenant is in addition to, and not in lieu of (or in any way in diminution of) Tenant’s other payment obligations hereunder including, without limitation, Tenant’s payment obligations as to Excess Costs.
SECTION 2 — TENANT IMPROVEMENTS
2.1    Tenant Improvements. The Tenant Improvements are and shall become Landlord’s property and shall be surrendered to Landlord upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease in accordance with the provisions of the Lease; provided, however, that any furniture, fixtures and equipment and other items of personal property owned by Tenant or installed or placed by Tenant at its expense in the Premises shall remain the property of Tenant and shall be removed by Tenant upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease, then Landlord shall have the right of election as provided in the Lease.
2.2    Premises Furnishings. It is expressly understood that Landlord’s obligation to construct Tenant Improvements in the Premises is limited to construction of the Tenant Improvements specifically contemplated by the T.I. Plans and Specifications to be constructed by Landlord. Tenant shall be solely responsible for the performance and expense of the design, layout, provision, delivery, permitting and installation of any furniture, furnishings, equipment, and any other personal property Tenant will use at the Premises; provided, however, although any cabling shall be furnished and installed by Tenant, the cost thereof may be charged against the Tenant Improvement Allowance.
SECTION 3 — TENANT IMPROVEMENT ALLOWANCE - COSTS
3.1    Tenant Improvement Allowance. Landlord has agreed to contribute a one-time tenant improvement allowance for the cost of preparing the T.I. Plans and Specifications related to Tenant Improvements and toward the cost of constructing the Tenant Improvements, (including, but not limited to, any necessary permits and approvals, and any necessary demolition work but excluding any costs of furniture, trade fixtures, equipment or personal property and/or any non-Building Standard improvements, all of which shall be Tenant’s sole responsibility), and for cabling to be installed by Tenant, in an amount up to but not exceeding forty-five dollars ($45.00) per rentable square foot of the Premises (“Tenant Improvement Allowance”). The Tenant Improvement Allowance is based on the rentable square feet of the Premises (which is 44,637 rentable square feet). Notwithstanding any provisions of the Lease or this Work Letter to the contrary, Tenant shall be solely responsible for, and shall pay within ten (10) business days upon billing therefor, any and all costs and expenses relating in any way to the Tenant Improvements (including, but not limited to, the design, permitting and construction thereof) in excess of the Tenant Improvement Allowance (“Excess Costs”) as provided in this Tenant Work Letter. The total of all costs to be incurred by Landlord in connection with the design, architectural, engineering, permitting, materials, labor and construction of the Tenant Improvements shall be referred to as “Landlord Costs” and Landlord’s contribution toward Landlord’s Costs shall be limited to the Tenant Improvement Allowance.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease or this Tenant Work Letter, any unused portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance shall be applied to offset the Base Rent next due under this Lease, once the exact amount of any such unused portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance is determined by Landlord.
3.2    Intentionally Omitted.
3.3    Cost of Tenant Improvement Work.
3.3.1    Preliminary Pricing Plan. Landlord and Tenant hereby approve (a) the preliminary pricing plan for the Tenant Improvements prepared by Designcorp dated November 11, 2013, and (b) the preliminary pricing plan notes prepared by Designcorp dated December 16, 2013 (collectively, the “Preliminary Pricing Plan”).
3.3.2    Approval of Preliminary Cost Estimate. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge and agree that Landlord’s calculation of the estimated cost of all aspects of the design and construction of the Tenant Improvements is based upon the approved Preliminary Pricing Plan (the “Preliminary Cost Estimate”), which was delivered to Tenant on November 26, 2013. Tenant, on or before the date that Tenant delivers a Tenant-executed copy of this Lease to Landlord, shall approve, sign and return the Preliminary Cost Estimate to Landlord with Tenant’s alternate selections indicated on the Preliminary Cost Estimate. The failure of Tenant to so approve the Preliminary Cost Estimate on or before the date that Tenant delivers a Tenant-executed copy of this Lease to Landlord shall be a Tenant Delay as to each day thereafter until Tenant so approves the Preliminary Cost Estimate.
3.3.3    Obtaining Estimated Construction Cost. The contractor to be retained by Landlord as the general contractor to construct the Tenant Improvements (“Contractor”) and the major trade subcontractors shall be selected pursuant to the following procedure. Within three (3) business days following approval of the T.I. Construction Drawings, Landlord shall deliver the approved T.I. Construction Drawings to at least three (3) general contractors not affiliated with, but selected by Landlord; provided, however, Tenant may select one (1) such general contractor (that is reasonably acceptable to Landlord and not affiliated with Tenant) and to at least three (3) subcontractors selected by

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT C    
-3-    



Landlord for each major subtrade, other than mechanical, electrical and plumbing, which can be design build. Landlord shall invite each such contractor to submit an estimated bid (on such bid form as Landlord shall reasonably designate) to construct the Tenant Improvements, along with a stipulated general conditions, fee and insurance cost proposal, an estimated construction schedule and a bio and job experience summary of such contractor's project manager and project superintendent. Promptly upon Landlord's receipt of the bid package from each of such contractors, Landlord shall submit the bids packages and a comparison summary to Tenant, along with Landlord's recommendation for the contractors to be selected, and Landlord and Tenant shall jointly, within three (3) business days of Tenant's receipt of all such bid packages and Landlord's recommendation, select the Contractor and all such subcontractors. Thereafter, Landlord shall enter into a construction contract with the Contractor for the construction of the Tenant Improvements. The estimated cost of the Tenant Improvements set forth in the bids of the Contractor and all subcontractors (as selected pursuant to the foregoing procedure), along with all other costs related to the Tenant Improvements shall be prepared in a form approved by Landlord and referred to herein as the “Estimated Construction Cost” and Landlord shall deliver a copy thereof to Tenant (the “Estimated Construction Cost Notice”).
3.3.4    Approval of Estimated Construction Cost by Tenant. Tenant shall, within three (3) business days of receipt of the Estimated Construction Cost Notice, either: (i) agree in writing to pay the amount by which the Estimated Construction Cost exceeds the Tenant Improvement Allowance (“Additional Cost”), such payment of the Additional Cost to be made in a cash lump sum within ten (10) business days following Tenant’s receipt of the Estimated Construction Cost Notice, or (ii) revise the T.I. Plans and Specifications (in a manner reasonably acceptable to Landlord) so that the Estimated Construction Cost is either (a) no more than the Tenant Improvement Allowance, or (b) in excess of the Tenant Improvement Allowance by no more than the amount of Additional Cost which Tenant agrees to pay, such payment of the Additional Cost to be made in a cash lump sum within ten (10) business days following Tenant’s receipt of the Estimated Construction Cost Notice. If Tenant elects to revise the T.I. Plans and Specifications in order to reduce the Estimated Construction Cost, the period of time between the date following Tenant’s election to revise the T.I. Plans and Specifications and the date of the approval of the revised Estimated Construction Cost by Tenant shall constitute a Tenant Delay (as defined in Section 4.3 of this Tenant Work Letter). The failure of Tenant to so respond within the three (3) business day period following receipt of the Estimated Construction Cost Notice shall be a Tenant Delay as to each day thereafter until Tenant so responds in writing. Upon approval by Tenant, Landlord shall be authorized to proceed with the Tenant Improvements in accordance with the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications. All costs of revising the T.I. Plans and Specifications and/or the Estimated Construction Cost, including, without limitation, re-engineering, estimating, printing of drawings, costs of any space planner, architect, tenant improvement coordinator, engineering consultants and other consultants, management, and any other incidental expenses, shall be chargeable against the Tenant Improvement Allowance, with any excess to be paid by Tenant as Excess Costs.
3.4    Landlord Costs for Tenant Improvements. Any and all out-of-pocket costs incurred by Landlord in connection with the design, construction and installation of the Tenant Improvements, in conformance with the T.I. Plans and Specifications, any demolition or modification of any existing improvements as may be necessary to accomplish construction of the Tenant Improvements in conformance with the T.I. Plans and Specifications, and any other measures taken by Landlord to accomplish Landlord’s construction of the Tenant Improvements, including but not limited to Landlord’s procurement of bonds, insurance policies and governmental permits and approvals, shall be chargeable against the Tenant Improvement Allowance, with any excess to be paid by Tenant as Excess Costs. A construction management fee shall be paid to Landlord in the amount equal to four percent (4%) of the aggregate of all Landlord Costs and all Excess Costs. Landlord shall have the right to charge such fee against the Tenant Improvement Allowance, with any excess to be paid by Tenant as Excess Costs.
3.5    Tenant Costs for Tenant Improvements. Tenant shall be solely responsible for all Additional Costs pursuant to Section 3.3.4 above. Failure by Tenant to timely deliver payment therefor as provided above shall prohibit Landlord from proceeding with the Tenant Improvements, shall constitute a Tenant Delay for each day of delay in delivering the cash lump sum equal to the Additional Costs as provided above and, at Landlord’s sole option, shall constitute a default by Tenant under this Work Letter and the Lease. Notwithstanding any provision of the Lease or this Work Letter to the contrary, Tenant shall pay for all Excess Costs. Notwithstanding any Additional Costs payments which may be made by Tenant, if at any time (including, without limitation, whether prior to, upon or after Substantial Completion) Landlord determines that Excess Costs exceed or will exceed that paid by Tenant (or that Excess Costs are otherwise due from Tenant) then Landlord shall have the right from time to time to bill Tenant for such Excess Costs, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord all such amounts so billed within ten (10) business days after Tenant’s receipt of billing therefor. Tenant’s failure to timely pay any such amounts shall constitute a default by Tenant under this Work Letter and the Lease.
SECTION 4 — CONSTRUCTION OF TENANT IMPROVEMENTS
4.1    Completion of Tenant Improvements. Landlord shall be responsible for the construction of the Tenant Improvements in substantial conformance with the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications, subject to the terms and conditions of the Lease and this Work Letter. Upon Substantial Completion (as such term is defined below), Landlord and Tenant shall conduct a Premises inspection and thereafter provide a “punchlist” identifying the corrective work of the type commonly found on an architectural punchlist with respect to the Tenant Improvements, which list shall be based on whether such items were required by the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications, as reasonably determined by Landlord. Within five (5) business days after delivery of the punchlist, Landlord shall instruct Contractor to commence the correction of the punchlist items and thereafter diligently pursue such work to completion. The punchlist

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT C    
-4-    



procedure to be followed by Landlord and Tenant shall in no way limit Tenant’s obligation to occupy the Premises under the Lease nor shall it in any way excuse Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent as provided under the Lease, unless such punchlist items actually preclude Tenant from occupying the Premises and using it for the use set forth in Section 5.1 of this Lease, as reasonably determined by Landlord.
4.2    Progress Reports; Site Meetings. Landlord shall provide to Tenant monthly progress reports describing the condition and estimated schedule for completing the Tenant Improvements (“Progress Reports”). In no event shall the Progress Reports be deemed to be a representation, warranty or an assurance by Landlord of the date of Substantial Completion or the cost or expense of the Tenant Improvements, and Tenant specifically acknowledges that the Progress Report is only an estimate by Landlord based on information provided to Landlord. Landlord shall have no liability or responsibility for any errors or inaccuracies in a Progress Report. In addition, Landlord shall coordinate on-site meetings of construction personnel as reasonably appropriate in order to implement the construction described in this Work Letter.
4.3    Substantial Completion. “Substantial Completion” or “Substantially Completed” as used herein shall mean both (i) delivery of a factually correct written notice to Tenant of the completion of construction of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises substantially in accordance with the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications with the exception of minor details of construction installation, decoration, or mechanical adjustments and punchlist items, which items will not materially interfere with Tenant’s use of any portion of the Premises for the use set forth in Section 5.1 of this Lease, such notice to be in substantially the form of Attachment “A” hereto, (ii) the City of Carlsbad has issued a final inspection approval, certificate of occupancy (or equivalent), a temporary certificate of occupancy (or equivalent) or other equivalent authorization, or Tenant has occupied and obtained the beneficial use of the Premises, and (iii) the Premises is vacant and broom clean. Substantial Completion shall be deemed to have occurred notwithstanding the requirement to complete “punchlist” items or similar minor corrective work. Tenant agrees that if Landlord shall be delayed in causing such work to be Substantially Completed as a result of any of the events described herein (or elsewhere in the Lease) as a “Tenant Delay,” then such delay shall be the responsibility of Tenant. In any such event, Substantial Completion shall be deemed to have occurred the earlier of: (a) the date of Substantial Completion or (b) the date when Substantial Completion would have occurred if there had been no Tenant Delay. Landlord shall not be required to work on an overtime basis. For the purposes of this Work Letter, a “Tenant Delay” is defined as any delay that actually delays Substantial Completion and directly results from: (1) Tenant’s failure to comply with any time frames set forth herein or in the Lease, (2) any changes in any stage of the T.I. Plans and Specifications requested by Tenant after Landlord’s and Tenant’s approval of such stage, including, without limitation, any Change Order or changes made to reduce the Preliminary Pricing Plan or the Estimated Construction Cost, (3) Tenant’s failure to furnish any documents required herein or approve any item or any cost estimates, the Preliminary Pricing Plan, the Estimated Construction Costs or any Change Orders, as required, and within the time frame set forth herein, (4) Tenant’s request for materials, finishes, or installations other than Landlord’s Building Standard items that Landlord previously informed Tenant would delay Substantial Completion and which actually do delay Substantial Completion, (5) Tenant’s failure to timely perform any act or obligation imposed on Tenant by the Lease or this Work Letter as and when requested thereunder or hereunder, (6) Tenant’s failure to assemble its systems furniture to satisfy fire and building inspector requirements to procure a certificate of occupancy (or equivalent); or (7) any other delay otherwise caused by Tenant, its officers, directors, owners, agents, invitees, permittees, employees or contractors which operates to delay Landlord’s Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements, as reasonably determined by Landlord.
SECTION 5 — TENANT WORK
5.1    Finish Work. All finish work and decoration and other work desired by Tenant and not included within the Tenant Improvements as set forth in the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications, including specifically, without limitation, all furniture systems, all computer systems, cabling, telephone systems, telecommunications systems audio visual equipment, security systems and other items (“Tenant Work” or “Tenant’s Work”) shall be furnished and installed by Tenant at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and shall not be chargeable to Landlord or against the Tenant Improvement Allowance; provided, however, that any cabling shall be furnished and installed by Tenant and may be charged against the Tenant Improvements Allowance. Any furniture, fixtures and equipment and other items of personal property, including, but not limited to, those portions of the computer systems, telephone systems, telecommunications systems, audio visual equipment, security systems and other items not permanently affixed to the Premises, and owned by Tenant or installed or placed by Tenant at its expense in the Premises, shall remain the property of Tenant and shall be removed by Tenant upon expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. If any Tenant Work is not set forth on the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications, Tenant must secure Landlord’s prior written consent for such Tenant Work which consent of Landlord shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Landlord’s approval or disapproval of any plans or specifications for Tenant Work may be based on any of the following matters in addition to any other matters reasonably considered by Landlord: (i) matters materially affecting the efficiency, operation and distribution of heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, electrical and plumbing systems, elevators, structural components, or any other shell building or common area system(s); (ii) matters affecting Landlord’s insurance coverage; (iii) compliance with building codes and other laws, ordinances, regulations, rulings and interpretations; (iv) compliance with Landlord’s Building Standard items; (v) ceiling grid layouts; (vi) consent or approval rights of lenders, to the extent actually required; and (vii) entrances on partial floors. Landlord has the right, exercisable in Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion, to require Tenant to remove all or any portion of such Tenant Work upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease upon notice to Tenant of such removal requirement. Tenant shall not commence the

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT C    
-5-    



construction or installation of any improvements or fixtures whatsoever on the Premises, including, specifically, but without limitation, the Tenant Work, without first securing satisfaction of all conditions thereto in the Lease and obtaining Landlord’s prior written approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) of: (a) Tenant’s contractor; (b) detailed plans and specifications for the Tenant Work; and (c) certificate(s) of insurance as prescribed below. The required certificates of insurance shall demonstrate that Tenant and Tenant’s contractor(s) maintain insurance coverage in amounts, types, form and with companies required under the Lease and all other insurance reasonably required by Landlord. All such certificates shall be endorsed to show Landlord (and any lender or other party Landlord may request) as an additional insured and the insurance shall be maintained by Tenant and/or Tenant’s contractor, as applicable, at all times during the performance of the Tenant Work. Provided that such certificates of insurance are so furnished to Landlord prior to the commencement of the proposed Tenant Work, Landlord may not unreasonably withhold or condition its consent to the making of an alteration or improvement unless the making or installation of the improvements or alterations would (a) adversely affect the Building Structure, (b) adversely affect the Building Systems and Equipment, (c) not comply with applicable laws, (d) affect the exterior appearance of the Building, or (e) unreasonably interfere with the normal and customary business operations of the other tenants in the Building.
5.2    Obligations. All of the Tenant Work shall be undertaken and performed in strict accordance with all applicable laws, the provisions of the Lease and the provisions of this Work Letter.
5.3    Outside Date. In the event that the Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises has not occurred by the “Outside Date,” which shall be     the date that is six (6) months after the date Landlord receives all necessary permits for the Tenant Improvements, as such six (6) month period may be extended by the number of days of Tenant Delays and by the number of days of “Force Majeure Delays” (as defined in Section 11.7 of this Tenant Work Letter below), then the sole remedy of Tenant shall be the right to deliver a notice to Landlord (the “Outside Date Termination Notice”) electing to terminate the Lease effective upon receipt of the Outside Date Termination Notice by Landlord (the “Effective Date”). Except as provided hereinbelow, the Outside Date Termination Notice must be delivered by Tenant to Landlord, if at all, not earlier than the Outside Date and not later than ten (10) business days after the Outside Date. If Tenant delivers the Outside Date Termination Notice to Landlord, then Landlord shall have the right to suspend the Effective Date for a period ending fifteen (15) business days after the original Effective Date. In order to suspend the Effective Date, Landlord must deliver to Tenant, within five (5) business days after receipt of the Outside Date Termination Notice, a certificate of the Contractor certifying that it is such Contractor’s best good faith judgment that Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises will occur within fifteen (15) days after the original Effective Date. If Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises occurs within said fifteen (15) day suspension period, then the Outside Date Termination Notice shall be of no further force and effect; if, however, Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises does not occur within said fifteen (15) day suspension period, then this Lease shall terminate as of the date of expiration of such thirty fifteen (15) day period. If prior to the Outside Date Landlord determines that Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises will not occur by the Outside Date, Landlord shall have the right to deliver a written notice to Tenant stating Landlord’s opinion as to the date by which Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises shall occur and Tenant shall be required, within ten (10) business days after receipt of such notice, to either deliver the Outside Date Termination Notice (which will mean that this Lease shall thereupon terminate and shall be of no further force and effect) or agree to extend the Outside Date to that date which is set by Landlord. Failure of Tenant to so respond in writing within said ten (10) business day period shall be deemed to constitute Tenant’s agreement to extend the Outside Date to that date which is set by Landlord. If the Outside Date is so extended, Landlord’s right to request Tenant to elect to either terminate or further extend the Outside Date shall remain and shall continue to remain, with each of the notice periods and response periods set forth above, until the Substantial Completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises or until this Lease is terminated.
SECTION 6 — CHANGE ORDERS
Tenant may request changes in the Tenant Improvements during construction only by written request to Landlord, or its designated representative, in substantially the form of Attachment “B” hereto, and as otherwise approved by Landlord. All such changes will be subject to Landlord’s prior written approval, which shall be given or withheld by Landlord in its reasonable discretion. Prior to commencing any change, Landlord has the right to prepare and deliver to Tenant, a change order (“Change Order”) setting forth the additional time, if any, reasonably needed for such change and the total cost of such change (or reasonable estimated cost of such change if cost information is delayed) which cost or estimated cost will include, but not be limited to, associated architectural, engineering, management and construction contractor’s fees. Within ten (10) business days after delivery to Tenant of any Change Order approved by Tenant, Tenant shall deliver a lump sum cash payment equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the cost or estimated cost of the change set forth in the Change Order (“Payment”). If Tenant fails to approve any Change Order within three (3) days after delivery by Landlord, Tenant will be deemed to have withdrawn the proposed Change Order and Landlord will not proceed to perform the change. Upon Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s approval and Payment, Contractor will proceed to perform the change. Any and all delays arising from or in any way in connection with Tenant’s requests for changes or Change Orders shall be deemed Tenant Delays.
SECTION 7 — RESPONSIBILITY FOR FUNCTION
Landlord’s preparation and/or approval of any design or construction documents will not constitute any representation or warranty as to the adequacy, efficiency, performance or desirability of the improvements contemplated

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT C    
-6-    



therein; provided, however, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the construction of all Tenant Improvements shall be accomplished in a good and workmanlike manner, in substantial conformance with the approved T.I. Plans and Specifications, and in accordance with applicable laws in effect as of the date Landlord obtains permits for such Tenant Improvements.
SECTION 8 — TENANT AND LANDLORD OBLIGATIONS
8.1    Risk of Loss. All materials, work, installations and decorations of any nature brought upon or installed in the Premises before the Lease Commencement Date shall be at the risk of the party who brought such materials or items onto the Premises. Neither Landlord nor any party acting on Landlord’s behalf shall be responsible for any damage or loss or destruction of such items brought to or installed in the Premises by Tenant or its employees, agents or contractors prior to such date, except for damage to Tenant's personal property, furniture and equipment or injury to persons caused by Landlord's negligence or willful misconduct while constructing the Tenant Improvements, but subject to the waivers set forth in Section 10.5 of this Lease.
8.2    Conformance with Laws. All Tenant Work shall be done in conformity with applicable codes and regulations of governmental authorities having jurisdiction over the Building and the Premises and valid building permits and all other authorizations from appropriate governmental agencies when required, shall be obtained by Tenant for the Tenant Work.
SECTION 9 — TENANT’S REPRESENTATIVE
Tenant has designated Jay Zimmett (“Tenant’s Representative”) as its sole representative with respect to the matters set forth in this Work Letter, who shall have full authority and responsibility to act on behalf of Tenant as required in this Work Letter. Tenant may change its representative under this Work Letter at any time by providing at least five (5) days prior written notice to Landlord. All inquiries, requests, instructions, authorizations and other communications with respect to matters covered by this Work Letter from Landlord will be made to Tenant’s Representative.
SECTION 10 — LANDLORD’S REPRESENTATIVE
Landlord has designated Jeffry A. Brusseau as its sole representative with respect to the matters set forth in this Tenant Work Letter, who shall have full authority and responsibility to act on behalf of Landlord as required in this Work Letter. Landlord may change its representative under this Work Letter at any time by providing five (5) days prior written notice to Tenant. All inquiries, requests, instructions, authorizations and other communications with respect to the matters covered by this Tenant Work Letter from Landlord will be made to Tenant’s representative. Tenant will communicate solely with Landlord’s Representative and will not make any inquiries of or requests to, and will not give any instructions or authorizations to, any other employee or agent of Landlord, including Landlord’s architect, engineers, and contractors or any of their agents or employees, with regard to matters covered by this Tenant Work Letter.

11.1    Sole Obligations. Except as herein expressly set forth in the Lease or this Tenant Work Letter with respect to the Tenant Improvements, Landlord or Tenant has no obligation to do any work with respect to the Premises.
11.2    Applicability. This Tenant Work Letter shall not be deemed applicable to: (a) any additional space added to the original Premises at any time, whether by the exercise of any options under the Lease or otherwise, or (b) any portion of the original Premises or any additions thereto in the event of a renewal or extension of the original Lease Term, whether by the exercise of any options under the Lease or otherwise.
11.3    Authority; Counterparts. Landlord and Tenant each represents that the person signing this Tenant Work Letter on behalf of Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be, has authority to do so. This Tenant Work Letter may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together constitute one instrument.
11.4    Binding on Successors. Subject to the limitations on assignment and subletting contained in the Lease, this Tenant Work Letter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns.

ESTOPPEL, ATTORNMENT AND NON-DISTURBANCE AGREEMENT
(Lease To Deed of Trust)
NOTICE:
THIS SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT RESULTS IN YOUR SECURITY INTEREST IN THE PROPERTY BECOMING SUBJECT TO AND OF LOWER PRIORITY THAN THE LIEN OF SOME OTHER OR LATER SECURITY INSTRUMENT.
THIS SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT; ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF LEASE ASSIGNMENT, ESTOPPEL, ATTORNMENT AND NON-DISTURBANCE AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is made DATE OF DOCUMENTS by and between BORROWER NAME, a ___________ general partnership (“Owner”), NAME OF LESSEE HERE (“Lessee”) and WELLS FARGO BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, (“Lender”).
R E C I T A L S
A.
Pursuant to the terms and provisions of a lease dated DATE OF LEASE HERE (“Lease”), Owner, as “Lessor”, granted to Lessee a leasehold estate in and to a portion of the property described on Exhibit A attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference (which property, together with all improvements now or hereafter located on the property, is defined as the “Property”).
B.
Said Lease contains provisions and terms granting Lessee an option to purchase the Property (the “Option To Purchase”).
C.
Owner has executed, or proposes to execute, a deed of trust with absolute assignment of leases and rents, security agreement and fixture filing (“Deed of Trust”), securing, among other things, a promissory note (“Note”) in the principal sum of LOAN AMOUNT AND NO/100ths dollars ($LOAN AMOUNT NOS.), dated DATE OF DOCUMENTS in favor of Lender, which Note is payable with interest and upon the terms and conditions described therein (“Loan”). The Deed of Trust is to be recorded concurrently hereunder.
D.
As a condition to making the Loan secured by the Deed of Trust, Lender requires that the Deed of Trust be unconditionally and at all times remain a lien on the Property, prior and superior to all the rights of Lessee

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT H    
-2-    



under the Lease and the Option to Purchase and that the Lessee specifically and unconditionally subordinate the Lease and the Option to Purchase to the lien of the Deed of Trust.
E.
Owner and Lessee have agreed to the subordination, attornment and other agreements herein in favor of Lender.
NOW THEREFORE, for valuable consideration and to induce Lender to make the Loan, Owner and Lessee hereby agree for the benefit of Lender as follows:
1.
SUBORDINATION. Owner and Lessee hereby agree that:
1.1
Prior Lien. The Deed of Trust securing the Note in favor of Lender, and any modifications, renewals or extensions thereof (including, without limitation, any modifications, renewals or extensions with respect to any additional advances made subject to the Deed of Trust), shall unconditionally be and at all times remain a lien on the Property prior and superior to the Lease and the Option to Purchase;
1.2
Subordination. Lender would not make the Loan without this agreement to subordinate; and
1.3
Whole Agreement. This Agreement shall be the whole agreement and only agreement with regard to the subordination of the Lease and the Option to Purchase to the lien of the Deed of Trust and shall supersede and cancel, but only insofar as would affect the priority between the Deed of Trust and the Lease and the Option to Purchase, any prior agreements as to such subordination, including, without limitation, those provisions, if any, contained in the Lease which provide for the subordination of the Lease and the Option to Purchase to a deed or deeds of trust or to a mortgage or mortgages.
AND FURTHER, subject to the terms of this Agreement, Lessee individually declares, agrees and acknowledges for the benefit of Lender, that:
1.4
Use of Proceeds. Lender, in making disbursements pursuant to the Note, the Deed of Trust or any loan agreements with respect to the Property, is under no obligation or duty to, nor has Lender represented that it will, see to the application of such proceeds by the person or persons to whom Lender disburses such proceeds, and any application or use of such proceeds for purposes other than those provided for in such agreement or agreements shall not defeat this agreement to subordinate in whole or in part;
1.5
Waiver, Relinquishment and Subordination. Lessee intentionally and unconditionally waives, relinquishes and subordinates all of Lessee’s right, title and interest in and to the Property to the lien of the Deed of Trust and understands that in reliance upon, and in consideration of, this waiver, relinquishment and subordination, specific loans and advances are being and will be made by Lender and, as part and parcel thereof, specific monetary and other obligations are being and will be entered into which would not be made or entered into but for said reliance upon this waiver, relinquishment and subordination.
2.
ASSIGNMENT. Lessee acknowledges and consents to the assignment of the Lease by Lessor in favor of Lender.
3.
ESTOPPEL. Lessee acknowledges and represents, as of the date Lessee executes this Agreement, that:
3.1
Lease Effective. The Lease has been duly executed and delivered by Lessee and, subject to the terms and conditions thereof, the Lease is in full force and effect, the obligations of Lessee thereunder are valid and binding and there have been no modifications or additions to the Lease, written or oral;
3.2
No Default. To Lessee's actual knowledge (without any duty of inquiry), as of the date hereof: (i) there exists no breach, default, or event or condition which, with the giving of notice or the passage

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT H    
-3-    



of time or both, would constitute a breach or default under the Lease; and (ii) there are no existing claims, defenses or offsets against rental due or to become due under the Lease;
3.3
Entire Agreement. The Lease constitutes the entire agreement between Lessor and Lessee with respect to the Property and Lessee claims no rights with respect to the Property other than as set forth in the Lease; and
3.4
No Prepaid Rent. No deposits or prepayments of rent have been made in connection with the Lease, except as follows: (if none, state "None") _____________________________________.
3.5
No Broker Liens.

LIST OF EXISTING CLAIMS HERE
4.
ADDITIONAL AGREEMENTS. Lessee covenants and agrees that, during all such times as Lender is the Beneficiary under the Deed of Trust:
4.1
Modification, Termination and Cancellation. Lessee will not consent to any modification, amendment, termination or cancellation of the Lease (in whole or in part) without Lender's prior written consent and will not make any payment to Lessor in consideration of any modification, termination or cancellation of the Lease (in whole or in part) without Lender's prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld;
4.2
Notice of Default. Lessee will notify Lender in writing concurrently with any notice given to Lessor of any default by Lessor under the Lease, and Lessee agrees that Lender has the right (but not the obligation) to cure any breach or default specified in such notice within the time periods set forth below and Lessee will not declare a default of the Lease, as to Lender, if Lender cures such default within fifteen (15) days from and after the expiration of the time period provided in the Lease for the cure thereof by Lessor; provided, however, that if such default cannot with diligence be cured by Lender within such fifteen (15) day period, the commencement of action by Lender within such fifteen (15) day period to remedy the same shall be deemed sufficient so long as Lender pursues such cure with diligence, provided if Lender elects to cure such default, Lender agrees to notify Lessee in writing of such intent to cure within ten (10) days after receipt of Lessee’s notice of default;
4.3
No Advance Rents. Lessee will make no payments or prepayments of rent more than one (1) month in advance of the time when the same become due under the Lease; and
4.4
Assignment of Rents. Upon receipt by Lessee of written notice from Lender that Lender has elected to terminate the license granted to Lessor to collect rents, as provided in the Deed of Trust, and directing the payment of rents by Lessee to Lender, Lessee shall comply with such direction to pay and shall not be required to determine whether Lessor is in default under the Loan and/or the Deed of Trust.
5.
ATTORNMENT. In the event of a foreclosure under the Deed of Trust, Lessee agrees for the benefit of Lender (including for this purpose any transferee of Lender or any transferee of Lessor's title in and to the Property by Lender's exercise of the remedy of sale by foreclosure under the Deed of Trust) as follows:
5.1
Payment of Rent. Lessee shall pay to Lender all rental payments required to be made by Lessee pursuant to the terms of the Lease for the duration of the term of the Lease, and Owner acknowledges and agrees that (i) Lessee is hereby authorized to pay its rent and all other sums due under the Lease directly to Lender, upon receipt of a notice as set forth in Section 4.4 above from Lender, and (ii) Lessee is not obligated to inquire as to whether a default actually exists under the Deed of Trust. Owner

P:00816539-5:12107.019     EXHIBIT H    
-4-    



hereby releases and discharges Lessee of and from any liability to Owner resulting from Lessee’s payment to Lender;
5.2
Continuation of Performance. Lessee shall be bound to Lender in accordance with all of the provisions of the Lease for the balance of the term thereof, and Lessee hereby attorns to Lender as its landlord, such attornment to be effective and self operative without the execution of any further instrument immediately upon Lender succeeding to Lessor's interest in the Lease and giving written notice thereof to Lessee and Lessee is not obligated to inquire as to whether a default actually exists under the Deed of Trust;
5.3
No Offset. Lender shall not be liable for, nor subject to, any offsets or defenses which Lessee may have by reason of any act or omission of Lessor under the Lease, except that the foregoing shall not limit (i) Tenant’s right to exercise against Lender any offset right otherwise available to Tenant because of events occurring after the date of attornment if such right is set forth in the Lease, (ii) Tenant’s rights with respect to offsets or defenses which are continuing at the time of attornment, or (iii) any of Tenant’s self-help rights if such rights are set forth in the Lease, nor for the return of any sums which Lessee may have paid to Lessor under the Lease as and for security deposits, advance rentals or otherwise, except to the extent that such sums are actually delivered by Lessor to Lender; and
5.4
Subsequent Transfer. If Lender, by succeeding to the interest of Lessor under the Lease, should become obligated to perform the covenants of Lessor thereunder, then, upon any further transfer of Lessor's interest by Lender, all of such obligations shall terminate as to Lender.
6.
NON-DISTURBANCE. In the event of a foreclosure under the Deed of Trust, so long as there shall then exist no breach, default, or event of default in any event beyond any applicable cure period on the part of Lessee under the Lease, Lender agrees for itself and its successors and assigns that the leasehold interest of Lessee under the Lease shall not be extinguished or terminated by reason of such foreclosure, but rather the Lease shall continue in full force and effect and Lender shall recognize and accept Lessee as tenant under the Lease subject to the terms and provisions of the Lease except as modified by this Agreement; provided, however, that Lessee and Lender agree that the following provisions of the Lease (if any) shall not be binding on Lender: any option to purchase with respect to the Property.
7.
MISCELLANEOUS.
7.1    Heirs, Successors, Assigns and Transferees. The covenants herein shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the heirs, successors and assigns of the parties hereto; and
