4.3.2. Statement of Actual Direct Expenses and Payment by Tenant. Landlord shall endeavor to give to Tenart on or before the first day of April following the end of each Expense Year a statement (“Statement”) stating the Direct Expenses incurred or accrued for that preceding Expense Year and indicating the amount, if any, of any Excess.

In addition to the requirements set forth in this Article 13, the insurance required of Tenant must: (a) Name Landlord and any other party Landlord specifies by endorsement as an additional insured; (b) Be issued by an insurance company with a rating of no less than A-VIII in the current Best’s Insurance Guide, or that is otherwise acceptable to Landlord, and admitted to engage in the business of insurance in the State of California; (c) Be primary insurance for all claims under it and provide that any insurance carried by Landlord Parties and Landlord lenders is strictly excess, secondary, and noncontributing with any insurance carried by Tenant; and (d) Provide that insurance may not be canceled, nonrenewed, or the subject of material change in coverage or available limits of coverage, except on thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord and Landlord’s lenders.

 

13.9.3. Tenant’s Delivery of Policy. Endorsements, and Certificates. Tenant shall deliver the policy or policies, along with any endorsements to them and certificates required by this Article 13, to Landlord: (a) On or before the Lease Commencement Date; (b) At least thirty (30) days before the expiration date of any policy; and (c) On renewal of any policy.

 

13.10. Waiver of Subrogation. Landlord and Tenant agree to cause the insurance companies issuing their respective property (first party) insurance to waive any subrogation rights that those companies may have against Tenant or Landlord, respectively, as long as the insurance is not invalidated by the waiver. If the waivers of subrogation are contained in their respective insurance policies, Landlord and Tenant waive any right that either may have against the other on account of any loss or damage to their respective property to the extent that the loss or damage is insured under their respective insurance policies.

 

Article 14

DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION

 

14.1. Repair of Damage by Landlord Tenant agrees to notify Landlord in writing promptly of any damage to the Premises resulting from fire, earthquake, or any other identifiable event of a sudden, unexpected, or unusual nature (Casualty). If the Premises are damaged by a Casualty or any common areas of the Building providing access to the Premises are damaged to the extent that Tenant does not have reasonable access to the Premises and if neither Landlord nor Tenant has elected to terminate this Lease under section 14.3 or 14.4, Landlord shall promptly and diligently restore such common areas, the Base Building of the Premises, and the Tenant Improvements originally constructed by Landlord to substantially the same condition as existed before the Casualty, except for modifications required by building codes and other laws and except for any other modifications to the common areas considered desirable by Landlord. In making these modifications, Landlord shall not materially impair Tenant’s access to the Premises. Landlord’s obligation to restore is subject to reasonable delays far insurance adjustment and other matters beyond Landlord’s reasonable control and subject to the other clauses of this Article 14. If Tenant requests that Landlord modify the Tenant Improvements in connection with the rebuilding, Landlord may condition its consent to those modifications on: (a) Tenant’s payment to Landlord before construction is begun of any sums in excess of the amount of insurance proceeds received by Landlord that are needed to complete the Tenant Improvements; and (b) Confirmation by Landlord’s architect or contractor that the modifications will not increase the scope of work or the time necessary to complete the Tenant Improvements.

 

14.2. Repair Period Notice. Landlord shall, within the later of (a) sixty (60) days after the date on which Landlord determines the full extent of the damage caused by the Casualty or (b) thirty (30) days after Landlord has determined the extent of the insurance proceeds available to effectuate repairs, provide written notice to Tenant indicating the anticipated period for repairing the Casualty (Repair Period Notice). The Repair Period Notice shall also state, if applicable, Landlord’s election either to repair or to terminate the Lease under section 14.3.

 

14.3. Landlord’s Option To Terminate or Repair. Landlord may elect either to terminate this Lease or to effectuate repairs if (a) The Repair Period Notice estimates that the period for repairing the Casualty exceeds two-hundred and seventy (270) days from the date of the commencement of the repair; (b) The estimated repair cost exceeds the insurance proceeds, if any, available for such repair (not including the deductible, if any, on Landlord’s property insurance), plus any amount that Tenant is obligated or elects to pay for such repair; (c) The estimated repair cost of the Premises or the Building, even though covered by insurance, exceeds fifty percent (50%) of the full replacement cost; or (d) The Building cannot be restored except in a substantially different structural or architectural form than existed before the Casualty. Landlord’s election shall be stated in the Repair Period Notice.

14.4. Tenant’s Option To Terminate. If the Repair Period Notice provided by Landlord indicates that the anticipated period for repairing the Casualty exceeds two-hundred and seventy (270) days, Tenant may elect to terminate this Lease by providing written notice (Tenant’s Termination Notice) to Landlord within ten (10) days after receiving the Repair Period Notice. If Tenant does not elect to terminate within this ten-day (10-day) period, Tenant shall be considered to have waived the option to terminate.

 

14.5. Rent Abatement Due to Casualty. Landlord and Tenant agree that, if the Casualty was not the result of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or Tenant’s employees, contractors, licensees, or invitees, Tenant shall be provided with a proportionate abatement of Rent based on the Rentable Square Footage of the Premises rendered unusable (due to physical damage to the Premises or Base Building Systems or the unavailability of access to the Premises) and not used by Tenant. Subject to section 14.4, the Rent abatement provided in this section 14.5 is Tenant’s sole remedy due to the occurrence of the Casualty. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant or any other person or entity for any direct, indirect, or consequential damage (including but not limited to lost profits of Tenant or loss of or interference with Tenant’s business), whether or not caused by the negligence ofLandlord or Landlord’s employees, contractors, licensees, or invitees, due to, arising out of, or as a result of the Casualty (including but not limited to the termination of the Lease in connection with the Casualty).

 

14.6. Damage Near End of Term. Despite any other provision of this Article 14, if the Premises or the Building is destroyed or damaged by a Casualty during the last eighteen (18) months of the Lease Term and Landlord reasonably determines that the repair period will be longer than sixty (60) days, Landlord and Tenant shall each have the option to terminate this Lease by giving written notice to the other of the exercise of that option within thirty (30) days after that damage or destruction.

 

14.7. Effective Date of Termination: Rent Apportionment. If Landlord or Tenant elects to terminate this Lease under this Article 14 in connection with a Casualty, this termination shall be effective thirty (30) days after delivery of notice of such election Tenant shall pay Rent, properly apportioned up to the date of the Casualty. After the effective date of the termination, Landlord and Tenant shall be discharged of all future obligations under this Lease, except for those provisions that, by their terms, survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.

 

14.8. Waiver of Statutory Provisions. The provisions of this Lease, including those in this Article 14, constitute an express agreement between Landlord and Tenant that applies in the event of my Casualty to the Premises, Building, or Real Property. Tenant, therefore, fully waives the provisions of any statute or regulation, including California Civil Code sections 1932(2) and 1933(4), for any rights or obligations concerning a Casualty.

15.3.3. Landlord’s Right To Terminate. Landlord shall have the option to terminate this Lease if: (a) Ten percent (10%) or more of the Rentable Square Feet of the Building or the Premises is taken through Condemnation; (b) Any portion of the Building or Real Property necessary for Landlord to operate the Building efficiently is taken through Condemnation; or (c) Any other areas providing access to the Premises or Building are taken through Condemnation.

In that event, this Lease shall be terminated on the Termination Date, and all Rent shall be prorated to that date. If Landlord does not elect to terminate under this subsection 15.3.3, Landlord shall, subject to subsection 15.3.4, be obligated to the extent of severance damages received by Landlord to reasonably restore (to the extent feasible) the Premises or access to the Premises, subject to Landlord’s obtaining all necessary approvals, permits, and authorizations relating to such work.

Tenant shall have the option to terminate this Lease by providing thirty (30) days’ written notice to Landlord if one or both of the following are taken through Condemnation: (a) Twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the Usable Square Feet of the Premises; or (b) Any portion of he Building that provides Tenant with its access to the Premises and that, if taken, would eliminate Tenant’s access to the Premises. Tenant’s notice must be given within thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of the Condemnation Notice required by section 15.2.

 

15.3.4.2. Landlord’s Restoration Notice. Despite Tenant’s termination right, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect if Landlord gives Tenant written notice (Restoration Notice) within thirty (30) days after the date on which the nature and extent of the Condemnation are finally determined, stating that: (a) Landlord shall, at Landlord’s sole expense, reconfigure theremaining Premises or provide alternative, reasonable access to Tenant so that the area of the Premises shall be substantially the same after the Condemnation and Tenant shall have reasonable access to the Premises after the Condemnation; (b) Landlord shall begin the restoration as soon as reasonably practicable; and (c) Landlord has reasonably determined that such restoration can be completed within ninety (90) days after the date of the notice.

 

15.3.5. Tenant’s Waiver. Tenant agrees that its rights to terminate this Lease due to partial Condemnation are governed by this Article 15.

15.3.6. Proration of Rent. If this Lease is terminated under this Article 15, the termination shall be effective on the Termination Date, and Landlord shall prorate Rent to that date. Tenant shall be obligated to pay Rent for the period up to, but not including, the Termination Date as prorated by Landlord. Landlord shall return to Tenant prepaid Rent allocable to any period on or after the Termination Date.

 

15.4. Effect of Condemnation if Lease Is Not Terminated.

Landlord and Tenant agree to enter into an amendment to this Lease within thirty (30) days after the partial taking, confirming the reduction in Rentable Square Footage of the Premises and the reduction in Rent. If Landlord gives Tenants timely Restoration Notice under subsection 15.3.4.2, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect without any reduction of Rent (unless the Premises as restored are smaller than the existing Premises, in which case Rent shall be proportionately reduced based on the reduced Rentable Square Footage), except that Rent shall be abated for the portion of the Premises not usable by Tenant until Landlord completes the restoration as provided in the Restoration Notice.

 

15.5. Allocation of Award.

 

15.5.1. Landlord’s Right to Award. Except as provided in subsection 15.5.2 in connection with a Condemnation: (a) Landlord shall be entitled to receive all compensation and anything of value awarded, paid, or received in settlement or otherwise (Award); and (b) Tenant irrevocably assigns and transfers to Landlord all rights to and interests in the Award and fully releases and relinquishes any claim to, right to make a claim on, or interest in the Award, including any amount attributable to any excess of the market value of the Premises for the remainder of the Lease Term over the present value as of the Termination Date of the Rent payable for the remainder of the Term (commonly referred to as the “bonus value” of the Lease).

 

15.5.2. Tenant’s Right to Compensation. Despite subsection 15.5.1, Tenant shall have the right to make a separate claim in the Condemnation proceeding, as long as the Award payable to Landlord is not reduced thereby, for: (a) The taking of the unamortized or undepreciated value of any leasehold improvements owned by Tenant that Tenant has the right to remove at the end of the Lease Term and that Tenant elects not to remove; (b) Reasonable removal and relocation costs for any leasehold improvements that Tenant has the right to remove and elects to remove (if Condemnor approves of the removal); and (c) Relocation costs under Government Code section 7262, the claim for which Tenant may pursue by separate action independent of this Lease.

 

15.6. Temporary Taking.

Article 16

16.1. Restricted Transfers.

 

16.1.1. Consent Required; Definition of “Transfer.” Tenant shall obtain Landlord’s written consent before entering into or permitting any Transfer. A “Transfer” consists of any of the following, whether voluntary or involurtary and whether effected by death, operation of law, or otherwise: (a) Any assignment, mortgage, pledge, encumbrance, or other transfer of any interest in this Lease; (b) Any sublease or occupancy of any portion of the Premises by any persons other than Tenant and its employees; and (c) Any of the changes (e.g., a change of ownership or reorganization) included in the definition of Transfer in section 16.7. Any person to whom any Transfer is male or sought to be made is a “Transferee.”

 

16.1.2. Landlord’s Remedies. If a Transfer fails to comply with this Article 16, Landlord may, at its option, do either or both of the following: (a) void the Transfer or (b) declare Tenant in material and incurable default under section 21.1 notwithstanding any cure period specified in section 21.1.

 

16.2. Transfer Procedure.

 

16.2.1. Transfer Notice. Before entering into or permitting any transfer, Tenant shall provide to Landlord a written “Transfer Notice” at least fifteen (15) days before the proposed effective date of the Transfer. The Transfer Notice shall include all of the following:

 

(a) Information regarding the proposed Transferee, including the name, address, and ownership of Transferee; the nature of Transferee’s business; Transferee’s character and reputation; and Transferee’s current financial statements (certified by an officer, a partner, or an owner of Transferee); (b) All the terms of the proposed Transfer, including the consideration payable by Transferee; the portion of the Premises that is subject to the Transfer (“Subject Space”); a general description of any planned alterations or improvements to the Subject Space; the proposed use of the Subject Space; the effective date of the Transfer; a calculation of the “Transfer Premium,” as defined in subsection 16.4.2, payable in connection with the Transfer; and a copy of all documentation concerning the proposed Transfer; and (c) Any other information or documentation reasonably requested by Landlord.

 

16.2.2. Application Fee: Transfer Fee. As a condition to the effectiveness of the Transfer Notice, Tenant shall, when providing a Transfer Notice, pay an application fee of One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500) toward Landlord’s administrative and other costs (including attorney fees) in reviewing and processing the Transfer Notice. Tenant shall pay the Transfer Fee whether or not Landlord consents to the Transfer.

 

16.2.3. Limits of Consent. If Landlord consents to any Transfer and does not exercise its rights under section 16.5, the following limits apply: (a) Landlord does not agree to waive or modify the terms and conditions of this Lease; (b) Landlord does not consent to any further Transfer by either Tenant or Transferee; and (c) Tenant remains liable under this Lease, and any guarantor of the Lease remains liable under the guaranty.

 

16.3. Landlord’s Consent

 

16.3.1. Reasonable Consent Landlord may not unreasonably withhold its consent to any proposed Transfer that complies with this Article 16. Reasonable grounds for denying consent include any of the following: (a) Transferee’s character, reputation, credit history, or business is not consistent with the character or quality of the Building; (b) Transferee is either a government agency or an instrumentality of one; (c) Transferee’s intended use of the Premises is inconsistent with the Permitted Use or will materially and adversely affect Landlord’s interest; (d) Transferee’s financial condition is or may be inadequate to support the Lease obligations of Transferee under the Transfer documents; or (e) The Transfer would cause Landlord to violate another lease or agreement to which Landlord is a party or would give a Building tenant the right to cancel its lease.

 

16.3.2. Landlord’s Written Response. Within a reasonable time after receipt of a Transfer Notice that complies with subsection 16.2.1, Landlord shall approve or disapprove the proposed Transfer in writing.

 

16.3.3. Tenant’s Remedies. If Landlord wrongfully denies or conditions its consent, Tenant may seek only declaratory and injunctive relief. Tenant specifically waives any damage claims against Landlord in connection with the withholding of consent.

16.5. Landlord’s Option To Recapture Space.

 

16.5.1. Landlord’s Recapture Right. Despite any other provision of this Article 16, Landlord has the option, by written notice to Tenant (Recapture Notice) within fifteen (15) days after receiving my Transfer Notice, to recapture the Subject Space by terminating this Lease for the Subject Space or taking an assignment or a sublease of the Subject Space from Tenant. A timely Recapture Notice terminates this Lease or creates an assignment or a sublease for the Subject Space for the same term as the proposed Transfer, effective as of the date specified in the Transfer Notice. If Landlord declines or fails timely to deliver a Recapture Notice, Landlord shall have no further right under this section 16.5 to the Subject Space unless it becomes available again after Transfer by Tenant

 

16.5.2. Consequences of Recapture. To determine the new Base Rent under this Lease if Landlord recaptures the Subject Space, the original Base Rent under the Lease shall be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Rentable Square Feet of the Premises retained by Tenant after Landlord’s recapture and the denominator of which is the total Rentable Square Feet of the Premises before Landlord’s recapture. The Additional Rent, to the extent that it is calculated on the basis of the Rentable Square Feet within the Premises, shall be reduced to reflect Tenant’s proportionate share based on the Rentable Square Feet of the Premises retained by Tenant after Landlord’s recapture. This Lease as so amended shall continue thereafter in full force and effect. Either party may require written confirmation of the amendments to this Lease necessitated by Landlord’s recapture of the Subject Space. If Landlord recaptures the Subject Space, Landlord shall, at Landlord’s sole expense, construct any partitions required to segregate the Subject Space from the remaining Premises retained by Tenant. Tenant shall, however, pay for painting, covering, or otherwise decorating the surfaces of the partitions facing the remaining Premises retained by Tenant.

 

16.6. Right To Collect Rent If this Lease is assigned, Landlord may collect Rent directly from Transferee. If all or part of the Premises is subleased and Tenant defaults, Landlord may collect Rent directly from Transferee. Landlord may then apply the amount collected from Transferee to Tenant’s monetary obligations under this Lease. Collecting Rent from a Transferee or applying that Rent to Tenant’s monetary obligations does not waive any provisions of this Article 16.

 

16.7. Transfers of Ownership Interests and Other Organizational Changes.

 

16.7.1. Change of Ownership: Reorganization. For purposes of this Article 16, “Transfer” also includes: (a) If Tenant is a partnership or limited liability company: (1) A change in ownership effected voluntarily, involuntarily, or by operation of law of twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the partners or members or twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the partnership or membership interests, or (2) The dissolution of the partnership or limited liability company without its immediate reconstitution; (b) If Tenant is a closely held corporation (i.e., one whose stock is not publicly held and not traded through an exchange or over the counter): (1) The sale or other traisfer 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), (2) The sale, mortgage, hypothecation, or pledge of more than an aggregate of forty-nine percent (49%) of the value of Tenant’s unencumbered assets, or (3) The dissolution, merger, consolidation, or other reorganization of Tenant

 

16.7.2. Transfer to Affiliate. Despite any other provision of this Lease, Landlord’s consent is not required for any Transfer to an Affiliate, as defined in subsection 16.7.3, as long as the following conditions are met: (a) At least ten (10) business days before the Transfer, Landlord receives written notice of the Transfer (as well as any documents or information reasonably requested by Landlord regarding the Transfer or Transferee); (b) The Transfer is not a subterfuge by Tenant to avoid its obligations under the Lease; (c) If the Transfer is an assignment, Transferee assumes in writing all of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease relating to the Subject Space; and (d) Transferee has a tangible net worth, as evidenced by financial statements delivered to Landlord and certified by an independent certified public accountant in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles that are consistently applied (Net Worth), at least equal to Tenant’s Net Worth either immediately before the Transfer or as of the date of this Lease, whichever is greater.

 

16.7.3. Definition of “Affiliate.” An “Affiliate” means any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Tenant. “Control” means the direct or indirect ownership of more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting securities of an entity or possession of the right to vote more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting interest in the ordinary direction of the entity’s affairs.

 

Article 17

SURRENDER OF PREMISES

 

17.1. Surrender of Premises. No act of Landlord or its authorized representatives shall constitute Landlord’s acceptance of a surrender of the Premises by Tenant unless that intent is specifically acknowledged in a writing signed by Landlord. At the option of Landlord, a surrender and termination of this Lease shall operate as an assignment to Landlord of all subleases or subtenancies. Landlord shall exercise this option by giving notice of that assignment to all subtenants within ten (10) days after the effective date of the surrender and termination.

 

17.2. Removal of Tenant Property by Tenant. On the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease Term, Tenant shall quit the Premises and surrender possession to Landlord in accordance with this section 17.2. Tenant shall leave the Premises in as good order and condition as when Tenant took possession of the Premises, except for reasonable wear and tear and repairs that are specifically made the responsibility of Landlord. On expiration or termination, Tenant shall, without expense to Landlord, remove or cause to be removed from the Premises: (a) Al debris and rubbish; (b) Any items of furniture, equipment, freestanding cabinet work, and other articles of personal property owned by Tenant or installed or placed by Tenant at its expense in the Premises; (c) Any similar articles of any other persons claiming under Tenant that Landlord, in Landlord’s sole discretion, requires to be removed; and (d) Any Alterations that Tenant is required to remove under Article 11 provided that Tenant shall not be obligated to remove any of Landlord’s Work. Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole expense, repair all damage or injury that may occur to the Premises or the Building caused by Tenant’s removal of those items and shall restore the Premises and Building to their original condition.

Article 18

HOLDING OVER

 

18.1. Holdover Rent. If Tenant remains in possession of the Premises after expiration or earlier termination of this Lease with Landlord’s express written consent, Tenant’s occupancy shall be a month-to-month tenancy at a rent agreed on by Landlord and Tenant but in no event less than the Base Rent and Additional Rent payable under this Lease during the last full month before the date of expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. The month-to-month tenancy shall be on the terms and conditions of this Lease except as provided in (a) the preceding sentence and the lease clauses concerning the lease term, extension rights or the like. Landlord’s acceptance of rent after such holding over with Landlord’s written consent shall not result in any other tenancy or in a renewal of the original term of this Lease. If Tenant remains in possession of the Premises after expiration or earlier termination of this Lease without Landlord’s consent, Tenant’s continued possession shall be on the basis of a tenancy at sufferance and Tenant shall pay as rent during the holdover period an amount equal to One Hundred Fifty percent (150%) of the Base Rent and Additional Rent payable under this Lease for the last full month before the date of expiration or termination.

 

18.2. No Consent or Waiver Implied. Nothing in this Article 18 shall be construed as implied consent by Landlord to any holding over by Tenant. Landlord expressly reserves the right to require Tenant to surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord as provided in this Lease on expiration or other termination of this Lease. The provisions of this Article 18 shall not be considered to limit or constitute a waiver of any other rights or remedies of Landlord provided in this Lease or at law.

 

Article 19

ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES

 

19.1. Tenant’s Obligation To Provide Estoppel Certificates. Within ten (10) business days after a written request by Landlord, Tenant shall execute and deliver to Landlord an estoppel certificate, substantially in the form of Exhibit F (or other form required by any existing or prospective lender, mortgagee, or purchaser of all or part of the Building), indicating in the certificate any exceptions to the statements in the certificate that may exist at that time. The certificate shall also contain any other information reasonably requested by Landlord or any existing or prospective lender, mortgagee, or purchaser.

 

19.2. Additional Requested Documents or Instruments. Within ten (10) business days after a written request by Landlord, Tenant shall execute and deliver whatever other documents or instruments may be reasonably required for sale or financing purposes, including (if requested by Landlord) a current financial statement and financial statements for the two (2) years preceding the current financial statement year. Those statements shall be prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

 

19.3. Failure To Deliver. Tenant’s failure to execute or deliver an estoppel certificate in the required time period shall constitute an acknowledgment by Tenant that the statements included in the estoppel certificate are true and correct, without exception. Tenant’s failure to execute and deliver an estoppel certificate or other document or instrument required under this Article 19 in a timely manner shall be a material breach of this Lease.

 

Article 20

SUBORDINATION, NONDISTURBANCE, AND ATTORNMENT

 

20.1. Automatic Subordination. This Lease is subject and subordinate to: (a) The lien of any mortgages, deeds of trust or other encumbrances (Encumbrances) of the Building and Real Property; (b) All present and future ground or underlying leases (Underlying Leases) of the Building and Real Property now or hereafter in force against the Building and Real Property; (c) All renewals, extensions, modifications, consolidations, and replacements of the items described in subparagraphs (a)-(b); and (d) All advances male or hereafter to be male on the security of the Encumbrances. Despite any other provision of this Article 20, any Encumbrance holder or Landlord may elect that this Lease shall be senior to and have priority over that Encumbrance or Underlying Lease whether this Lease is dated before or after the date of the Encumbrance or Underlying Lease.

 

20.2. Subordination Agreement: Agency. This subordination is self-operative, and no further instrument of subordination shall be required to make it effective. To confirm this subordination, however, Tenant shall, within five (5) days after Landlord’s request, execute any further instruments or assurances in recordable form that Landlord reasonably considers necessary to evidence or confirrn the subordination or superiority of this Lease to any such Encumbrances or Underlying Leases. Tenant irrevocably Landlord as Tenant’s agent to execute and deliver in the name of Tenant any such instrument(s) if Tenant fails to do so. This authorization shall in no way relieve Tenant of the obligation to execute such instrument(s) of subordination or superiority. Tenant’s failure to execute and deliver such instrument(s) shall constitute a default under this Lease.

21.3.2. Continuation of Lease in Effect. Landlord shall have the remedy described in Civil Code section 1951.4, which provides that, when a tenant has the right to sublet or assign (subject only to reasonable limitations), the landlord may continue the lease in effect after the tenant’s breach and abandonment and recover Rent as it becomes due.

21.4. Form of Payment After Default. If Tenant fails to pay any amount due under this Lease within three (3) days after the due date or if Tenant draws a check on an account with insufficient funds, Landlord shall have the right to require that any subsequent amounts paid by Tenant to Landlord under this Lease (to cure a default or otherwise) be paid in the form of cash, money order, cashier’s or certified check drawn on an institution acceptable to Landlord, or other form approved by Landlord despite any prior practice of accepting payments in a different form.

23.1. Late Charges. If any Rent payment is not received by Landlord or Landlord’s designee within five (5) days after that Rent is due, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late charge of five percent (5%) of the amount in arrears as liquidated damages, in lieu of actual damages (other than interest under section 23.2 and attorney fees and costs under section 26.1). Tenant shall pay this amount for each calendar month in which all or any part of any Rent payment remains delinquent for more than five (5) days after the due date. The parties agree that this late charge represents a reasonable estimate of the expenses that Landlord will incur because of any late payment of Rent (other than interest and attorney fees and costs). Landlord’s acceptance of any liquidated damages shall not constitute a waiver of Tenant’s default with respect to the overdue amount or prevent Landlord from exercising any of the rights and remedies available to Landlord under this Lease. Tenant shall pay the late charge as Additional Rent with the next installment of Rent.

 

23.2. Interest. If any Rent payment is not received by Landlord or Landlord’s designee within five (5) days after that Rent is due, Tenant shall pay to Landlord interest on the past-due amount, from the date due until paid, at the rate of ten percent (10%) per year. Despite any other provision of this Lease, the total liability for interest payments shall not exceed the limits, if any, imposed by the usury laws of the State of California. Any interest paid in excess of those limits shall be refunded to Tenant by application of the amount of excess interest paid against any sums outstanding in any order that Landlord requires. If the amount of excess interest paid exceeds the sums outstanding, the portion exceeding those sums shall be refunded in cash to Tenant by Landlord. To ascertain whether any interest payable exceeds the limits imposed, any nonprincipal payment (including late charges) shall be considered to the extent permitted by law to be an expense or a fee, premium or penalty rather than interest.

 

Article 24
NONWAIVER

 

24.1. Non waiver. No waiver of any provision of this Lease shall be implied by any failure of Landlord to enforce any remedy for the violation o fthat provision, even if that violation continues or is repeated. Any waiver by Landlord of any provision of this Lease must be in writing. Such written waiver shall affect only the provision specified and only for the time and in the manner stated in the writing.

 

24.2. Acceptance and Application of Payment; Not Accord and Satisfaction. No receipt by Landlord of a lesser payment than the Rent required under this Lease shall be considered to be other than on account of the earliest amount due, and no endorsement or statement on any check or letter accompanying a payment or check shall be considered an accord and satisfaction. Landlord may accept checks or payments without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover all amounts due and pursue all other remedies provided for in this Lease.

 

Landlord’s receipt of monies from Tenant after giving notice to Tenant terminating this Lease shall in no way reinstate, continue, or extend the Lease Term or affect the Termination Notice given by Landlord before the receipt of those monies. After serving notice terminating this Lease, filing an action, or obtaining final judgment for possession of the Premises, Landlord may receive and collect any Rent due, and the payment of that Rent shall not waive or affect such prior notice, action, or judgment

ADDENDUM TO LEASE

 

The following shall constitute an Addendum to the Lease (the “Lease”) being executed concurrently herewith between Savoy Corporation, as Landlord, and Sysorex USA, as Tenant. The Lease covers approximately 6,211 rentable square feet of space known as Suite 120 located on the ground floor of the Building located at 101 Larkspur Landing Circle in Larkspur, California. All defined terms in the Lease are hereby incorporated by reference. This Addendum shall supersede and modify any inconsistent provisions of the Lease.

 

Addendum Paragraph 1. Signage. Landlord, at Landlord’s expense, shall list Tenant’s business name and suite number in the Building directory on the ground floor. Tenant, at its expense, shall provide signage on the entry door to the Premises. Subject to the City of Larkspur and Landlord as to size, location and design, Tenant may provide signage on the exterior of the Building at Tenant’s expense. Upon lease termination Tenant shall remove its signage and restore the Building and all exterior monuments to their condition prior to commencement of the Term.

 

Addendum Paragraph 2. Option to Extend. Tenant is given the option to extend the Lease term for a period of five (5) years (the “Extended Term”) following expiration of the initial term by giving written notice of exercise of the option at least six (6) months and not more than nine (9) months before expiration of the initial term. Tenant’s right to exercise the option to extend is conditioned upon the Lease being in full force and effect at the time the option is exercised and at the time the Extended Term commences.

 

(a) The terms of the Lease during the Extended Term shall be the same as the terms during the initial term except that Landlord shall not be required to make any new leasehold improvements and except that Base Rent shall be adjusted at the start of the Extended Term in accordance with paragraph (b), below.

 

(b) Base Rent during the first year of the Extended Term shall be the fair market rental rate of the Premises as of the commencement of the Extended Term. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of Tenant’s option notice, Landlord shall provide written notice of Landlord’s determination of the fair market rental rate. Tenant shall have thirty (30) days (“Tenant’s Review Period”) after receipt of Landlord’s notice of the fair market rental rate within which to accept such fair market rental rate or to object thereto in writing, which writing shall include Tenant’s determination of the fair market rental rate. Failure by Tenant to so object to the fair market rental rate submitted by Landlord in writing within Tenant’s Review Period shall conclusively be deemed Tenant’s approval and acceptance thereof. In the event Tenant reasonably objects to the fair market rental rate submitted by Landlord within Tenant’s Review Period, Landlord and Tenant shall attempt in good faith to agree upon such fair market rental rate. If Landlord and Tenant fail to reach agreement on such fair market rental rate within thirty (30) days following Tenant’s Review Period (the “Outside Agreement Date”), then each party’s determination shall be submitted to appraisal as follows:

 

(i) Landlord and Tenant shall each appoint a real estate appraiser with a membership in the American Institute of Estate Appraisers or the Society of Real Estate Appraisers and at least five (5) years full-time commercial appraisal experience in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each such appraiser shall be appointed within fifteen (15) days after the Outside Agreement Date. The two (2) appraisers so appointed shall within fifteen (15) days of the date of the appointment of the last appointed appraiser agree upon and appoint a third independent appraiser who shall be qualified under the same criteria set forth above for qualification of the initial two (2) appraisers.

(ii) The three (3) appraisers shall within thirty (30) days after the appointment of the third appraiser reach a decision as to whether the parties shall use Landlord’s or Tenant’s submitted fair market rental rate, and shall notify Landlord and Tenant thereof.

 

(iii) The decision of a majority of the three (3) appraisers shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. If either Landlord or Tenant fails to appoint an appraiser within the time period specified in subparagraph (i), above, the appraiser appointed by one of them shall reach a decision based upon the same procedures as set forth above (i.e., by selecting either Landlord’s or Tenant’s submitted fair market rental rate), and shall notify Landlord and Tenant thereof, and such appraiser’s decision shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant.

 

(iv) If the two (2) appraisers fail to agree and appoint a third independent appraiser, both appraisers shall be dismissed and the matter to be decided shall be forthwith submitted to arbitration under the provisions of the American Arbitration Association based upon the same procedures as set forth above (i.e., by selecting either Landlord’s or Tenant’s submitted fair market rental rate). The decision of arbitrators selected hereunder shall be binding on the parties.

 

(v) The cost of each appraiser appointed by the parties shall be paid by the party appointing the appraiser. If necessary, the cost of the third appraiser or cost of the arbitration shall be paid by Landlord and Tenant equally.

 

(c) On the commencement of the second year of the Extended Term and annually thereafter the Base Rent shall be increased by three percent (3%) of the previous year’s Base Rent.

 

(d) Tenant shall have no further option to extend the term of this Lease.

 

Addendum Paragraph 3. Tenant may, with Landlord’s written consent which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, enter the Premises prior to the Commencement Date solely for the purpose of installing its wiring and similar improvements (“Tenant’s Work”) as long as such entry will not interfere with the orderly construction and completion of the Landlord’s Work by Landlord’s contractor. Tenant shall notify Landlord of its desired time(s) of entry and shall submit for Landlord’s written approval the scope of the Tenant’s Work to be performed and the name(s) of the contractor(s) who will perform such work. Tenant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Landlord from and against any and all claims, actions, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and claims for worker’s compensation) of any nature whatsoever, arising out of or in connection with the Tenant’s Work (including, without limitation, claims for breach of warranty, bodily injury or property damage). Additionally, Landlord shall provide Tenant with the sum of $12,500 (“Tenant Improvement Allowance”) for Tenant’s Work (as opposed to Landlord’s Work which shall, as set forth above, be the sole responsibility and cost of Landlord) to be paid on the later of the Commencement Date or the date Tenant opens for business, provided Tenant shall provide to Landlord invoices or paid receipts evidencing said improvements having been made to the Premises. The Tenant Improvement Allowance shall be used solely for the following Tenant Improvements:

 

Tenant telephone and data cabling (at a cost not to exceed $7,000), and the balance of the Tenant Improvement Allowance for Tenant improvements to the Premises.

  

In the event any portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance remains undisbursed within ninety (90) days after the Commencement Date due to Tenant’s failure to submit invoices or paid receipts to Landlord for the foregoing Tenant Improvements, that portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance shall be deemed forfeited by Tenant and shall remain the property of Landlord.
