         extension hereof, so long as Lessee has materially complied with and
         performed all its covenants, terms and conditions hereunder, lease
         from Lessor all or any portion of the remainder of the 10th Floor
         which is not already leased to a third party, such areas to be
         mutually agreed upon so as to avoid unleasable areas being left on the
         portion of the 10th Floor not occupied by Lessee.  Lessee shall also,
         during the term or any renewal hereof, have a right of first refusal
         for any space on the 10th Floor which the Lessor intends to lease to a
         third party, provided that Lessee gives notice of acceptance within,
         and payment of rent for such space at the rate specified hereafter is
         commenced within, 30 days after Lessor gives notice of availability to
         Lessee and said space is vacated by its prior tenant.  If such space
         is to be made available to a third party on substantially different
         economic terms than the economic terms upon which that space was
         previously made available to Lessee, Lessor must give Lessee thirty
         (30) days notice of availability of such space on such revised
         economic terms before renting such space to a third party.  Any
         additional space leased by Lessee pursuant to the provisions of this
         paragraph 25 shall be at a rental rate equal do 95% of the rate which
         Lessor and Lessee agree is the then current fair market rental rate
         for a full-service, first-class office building in the Oakland High-
         rise office building market in the Oakland/Lake Merritt financial 
         district.  (No real estate commission shall be payable by Lessor on 
         account of this Lease.)  If Lessor and Lessee are unable to agree upon 
         said rate within ten (10) days of offering, the parties shall

                                         -2-

         appoint and share the costs of a mutually agreeable MAI appraiser to
         determine the then current market rate.  If Lessor and Lessee are
         unable to select a mutually acceptable appraiser within thirty (30)
         days of said offering, said rate shall be determined by a board of
         three MAI real estate appraisers which shall be selected as follows:
         Within fifteen (15) days after the time set for selecting the
         appraiser referred to above, Lessor and Lessee shall each select one
         appraiser and the third appraiser shall be selected by the two
         appraisers so appointed by Lessor and Lessee within fifteen (15) days
         thereafter.  The appraisal made by the appraiser referred to above, or
         concurred in by all or any two members of the board of appraisers
         referred to above, as the case may be, shall be final.  The fees and
         expenses of all appraisers exlusive appointed by each party hereto
         shall be borne by the party making such appointment, and the fees and
         expenses for all other appraiser shall be borne and paid equally by
         Lessor and Lessee.  If Lessee is not willing to accept a rental equal

    (b)  During the term of this Lease or any earlier occupancy by Lessee,
Lessee shall procure and maintain in full force and effect bodily injury
liability insurance with limits of not less than FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS
($500,000.00) per occurrence, and insurance against damage to property with a
limit of not less than ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,000.00), insuring
against any and all liability of Lessee with respect to the Leased Premises or
arising out of the maintenance, use or occupancy thereof.  Lessee shall provide
to Lessor, prior to Lessee's occupancy of the Leased Premises, a certificate
issued by Lessee's insurance carrier evidencing the coverage herein required and
naming Lessor and any and all of its employees, agents, partners, directors,
officers and assigns as it may designate from time to time, as additional named
insureds.  Such certificate shall also provide that the policy or policies shall
not be canceled or modified without thirty (30) days' prior written notice to
Lessor.  The policy or policies evidenced by such certificate shall be subject
to Lessor's approval as to form and substance.

    (c)  Lessee may fulfill its obligations under Paragraph 10 (a) and (b)
hereof by self-insurance with respect to the coverage amounts set forth therein;
provided, however, in no event shall Lessee be deemed insurer of Lessor except
as set forth in Paragraph 10 (a) and (b) hereof and provided further that Lessee
shall purchase policies of insurance providing the coverage described in
Paragraph 10 (a) and (b) if Lessor determines, in good faith, that self-
insurance is inconsistent with the prudent risk management practice for
companies of similar size and financial conditions as Lessee.

    (d)  Lessor shall not at any time or to any extent whatsoever be liable,
responsible or in anywise accountable for any loss, injury, death or damage to
persons or property which at any time may be suffered or sustained by Lessee or
by any person whosoever may at any time be

                                        - 9 -

using or occupying or visiting the Leased Premises or be in, on or about the
same, caused by or in anywise resulting from or arising out of, any act,
omission or negligence of Lessee in the use of the Leased Premises, or from any
failure of Lessee to keep the Leased Premises in good order, condition and
repair, as herein provided, and Lessee shall forever indemnify, defend, hold and
save Lessor free and harmless of, from and against any and all claims,
liability, loss or damage whatsoever on account of any such loss, injury, death
or damage.  Lessee hereby waives all claims against Lessor for damages to
fixtures, furniture and equipment, goods, wares and merchandise or any other
property, in or about the Leased Premises, and for injuries to or death of any
persons in or about the Leased Premises, from any cause except Lessor's
negligence or Lessor's intentional tortious acts.  Lessor shall indemnify and
hold harmless Lessee from any liability for injury to or death of any person,
including any employee of Lessee, or damage to any property, including any
property of Lessee, occurring on the premises and caused by, arising out of
or in any way connected with the following:  (i) Lessor's negligence or willful
misconduct, (ii) violation of law by Lessor or by Lessor's employees, agents or
contractors, (iii) breach of Lessor's duty to repair hereunder, (iv) structural
failure of the building of which the premises are a part, or (v) any condition
in the premises concerning which Lessee has no obligation to repair under
Paragraph 8 hereof.

11. DESTRUCTION

    The term "Casualty" as used herein shall mean and be limited to (i) any
fire, (ii) any other occurrence or event covered by the usual form of extended
coverage endorsement on fire insurance policies, (iii) any earthquake, and (iv)
any other occurrence or event covered by insurance actually carried by Lessor
and in force at the time of the happening of any such occurrence or event.  If,
during the term of this Lease the Building or any portion thereof shall be
damaged or destroyed as a result of any Casualty, then, anything contained in
Paragraph 8 (a) and (b) to the contrary notwithstanding, the following
provisions shall apply and govern:

    (a)  Except as hereinafter provided to the contrary, Lessor shall repair or
restore the Building as soon as reasonable practicable.  Any damage to or
destruction of the Building or the Leased Premises and any delay in effecting
repairs or restoration shall not constitute an actual or constructing eviction
of Lessee, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect except that to
the extend the Leased Premises are unusable by Lessee as a result of such damage
or destruction, Lessee shall be entitled to an appropriate abatement, from the
date of such damage or destruction until such time as the Leased Premises have
been repaired or restored, of the rental and other sums payable hereunder and
allocable to such period.  If the work of rebuilding or repairing is not
completed within ninety (90) days following such destruction or casualty, Lessee
shall have the right, by giving written notice to Lessor at any time thereafter
until said work is in fact completed, to terminate this Lease or alternatively
abate rent until substantial completion of due repairs.

                                        - 10 -

    (b)  If by reason of a Casualty (other than earthquake) there is damage to
or destruction of the Building and if the cost of restoring the same as
estimated by Lessor would exceed 33-1/3% of the replacement cost of such
building or the proceeds recovered by Lessor on account of such damage or
destruction under any insurance policy respecting the Building, then Lessor may
elect not to restore the Building.

    (c)  If by reason of earthquake there is damage to or destruction of the
Building and if the cost of restoring the same as estimated by Lessor would
exceed $1,000,000, then Lessor may elect not to restore the Building.

    (d)  If Lessor elects not to restore such building as provided in Paragraph
11(b) and (c), it shall notify Lessee of such election in writing, which notice
shall in no event be given later than 120 days after the date of such damage or
destruction.  If Lessor delivers such notice within the time specified, Lessee
shall, to the extent that the Leased Premises are unusable by reason of such
damage or destruction, be entitled to an appropriate abatement of the rental and
other sums payable hereunder accruing from the date of such damage or
destruction, and if the entire Leased Premises are unusable by Lessee, Lessee
may, by delivery of written notice to Lessor at any time within thirty (30) days
after receipt of Lessor's notice, elect to terminate this Lease, and this Lease
shall so terminate as of the date Lessee's notice of such election is received
by Lessor.

12. CONDEMNATION

    If any part of the Leased Premises, or if over one-half (1/2) of the
Building, shall be taken or condemned for a public or quasi-public use or shall
be sold by Lessor to any entity having the right of eminent domain after notice
of intent to exercise such right has been given to Lessor by such entity and a
part of the Leased Premises remains which is susceptible of the reasonable
conduct of the business of Lessee hereunder, this Lease shall remain in full
force and effect as to the portion of the Leased Premises not so taken or sold,
as the case may be, but the rental and other sums payable hereunder shall be
adjusted so that Lessee shall be required to pay for the remainder of the term
only such portion of such rental as the area measured in square feet of the part
remaining after such taking or sale bears to the total area measured in square
feet of the Leased Premises at the date of taking or sale, but Lessor and Lessee
shall each have the option to terminate the balance of the term of this Lease in
its entirety as of the date when title to the part so taken or sold vests in the
condemnor or purchaser by giving written notice to the other of the election to
so terminate within not to exceed ten (10) days after learning of the taking or
sale, as the case may be.  If the entire Leased Premises, or such substantial
part thereof be taken, condemned or sold so that there does not remain a portion
susceptible of the reasonable conduct of Lessee's business hereunder, this Lease
shall thereupon terminate and all advance paid rent allocable to periods
subsequent to the taking or sake shall be promptly refunded to Lessee.  If a
part or all of the Leased Premises are taken, condemned or sold, all
compensation awarded upon such taking or condemnation or the payment made upon
any such sale (except any compensation

                                        - 11 -

specifically awarded for the taking of any of Lessee's trade fixtures or
personal property or both) shall go to Lessor and Lessee shall have no claim
thereto, and Lessee hereby irrevocably assigns and transfers to Lessor any right
to compensation or damages to which Lessee may become entitled during the term
hereof by reason of the condemnation or sale to the condemning authority of all,
or a part of the Leased Premises.

13. DEFAULT

    (a)  The term "default" as hereinafter used in this Paragraph 13 shall mean
and include any one or more of the following events or occurrences:

         (i)  The failure by Lessee to perform or observe any of the covenants
    and agreements of this Lease, including specifically, but without
    limitation, the Lessee's covenants for the payment of rent or additional
    rents.

        (ii)  The issuance of any execution or attachment against Lessee or any
    of Lessee's property, whereby the Leased Premises or any portion thereof
    shall be taken or occupied, or attempted to be taken or occupied, by
    someone other than Lessee.

       (iii)  The filing at any time after the date of execution of this Lease
    and prior to the expiration or termination of this Lease, against Lessee in
    any court pursuant to any statute, either of the United States or of any
    state, of a petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or for reorganization or
    for the appointment of a receiver or trustee of all or any portion of
    Lessee's property, which petition is not dismissed or discharged within
    sixty (60) days after the filing thereof.

        (iv)  The filing by Lessee of a petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or
    for reorganization or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee, or the
    making of an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or entering into any
    arrangement for the relief of debtors.

    (b)  the term "abandonment" as hereinafter used in this Paragraph 13 shall
mean and include any one or more of the following events or occurrences:

         (i)  The relinquishment by Lessee of its right to possession of the
    Leased Premises or any substantial portion thereof.

        (ii)  The cessation by Lessee of the conduct in the Leased Premises of
    the business to be carried on by Lessee in the Leased Premises for a period
    of more than ninety (90) business days, absent any preparation for re-
    occupation, if accompanied by any failure to pay rent as it comes due.

                                        - 12 -

       (iii)  The removal by Lessee of all or a substantial portion of its
    personal property and trade fixtures from the Leased Premises without
    replacing the same, if accompanied by any failure to pay rent as it comes
    due, where the effect of such removal and failure, in Lessor's reasonable
    judgment, indicates that Lessee intends to cease the conduct in the Leased
    Premises of the business to be carried on by Lessee in the Leased Premises.

         (c)  In the event of the occurrence of any one or more of the events
of default specified in Paragraph 13 (a) by Lessee which is preceded by, occurs
concurrently with, or is succeeded by an abandonment of the Leased Premises or
any substantial part thereof, Lessor may, at its election treat such default in
the manner provided in Paragraph 13 (d) below or, without notice to Lessee,
elect to allow this Lease to continue in full force and effect without
terminating Lessee's right to possession of the Leased Premises and to enforce
all of Lessor's rights and remedies under this Lease, including without
limitation the right to recover rent as it becomes due.

    (d)  In the event of the occurrence of any one or more of the events of
default by Lessee specified in Paragraph 13 (a), and except as provided in
Paragraph 13 (e) below, Lessor may serve a ten (10) day written notice upon
Lessee in the case of default in the payment of the rental provided in Paragraph
3 hereof or a thirty (30) day written notice in the case of any other default,
in either case specifying the nature of such default.  Upon the expiration of
said ten (10) or thirty (30) day period, as the case may be, if Lessee shall
have failed to remedy such default, or if such default complained of shall be
other than the payment of monies required to be paid under this Lease and shall
be of such a nature that the same cannot be completely cured or remedied within
said thirty (30) day period, and if Lessee shall not diligently commence curing
such default within said thirty (30) day period, and shall not thereafter with
reasonable diligence and in good faith continue to remedy or cure such default,
then Lessor may serve a written three(3) day notice to vacate the Leased
Premises upon Lessee, and upon the expiration of such three (3)j days this Lease
shall terminate and Lessee shall peaceably quit, vacate and return the Leased
Premises to Lessor.

    (e)  Notwithstanding any notice provisions or any other provisions of this
Paragraph 13, this Lease, at the election of Lessor, shall terminate immediately
upon the occurrence of any event or events specified in Paragraph 13 (a) (iv).

    (f)  Upon the termination of this Lease for default as provided under
Paragraph 13 (d) and 13 (e), Lessor may, without notice to Lessee, re-enter the
Leased Premises and dispossess Lessee or the legal representative of Lessee or
other occupant of the Leased Premises, and remove and store, at Lessee's cost,
their personal property, trade fixtures and other effects, and to hold the
Leased Premises as if this Lease had not been made, but lessee shall remain
liable as hereinafter

                                        - 13 -

provided, and Lessee waives any and all rights of redemption or re-entry or
repossession or to restore the operation of this Lease.  Immediately upon the
termination of this Lease under Paragraph 13 (d) or 13 (e), Lessee shall
immediately become liable to and shall pay to Lessor an amount equal to the
combined total of the following:

         (i)  Any and all amounts due to Lessor by reason of the breach of any
    of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Lease other than the payment
    of rent;

        (ii)  The unpaid rent earned to the date of termination of this Lease,
    with interest thereon at the rate of fifteen percent (15%) per annum or
    such lesser maximum rate as it is then permitted by law from the date the
    same became due;

       (iii)  The unpaid rent which would have been due between the date of
    termination and the date of payment be Lessee of all sums due under this
    Paragraph 13 (f) or the date of an award of judgment, whichever occurs
    earlier, with interest thereon at the rate of fifteen percent (15%)j per
    annum or such lesser maximum rate as it is then permitted by law from the
    date the same became due;

        (iv)  The rent which would have been due between the date of payment of
    all sums due under this Paragraph 13 (f) or the date of an award of
    judgment, whichever occurs earlier, and the date upon which this LEASE
    would have expired in accordance with its terms, discounted at the discount
    rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of such
    payment or judgment award or at such greater minimum discount rate as may
    hereafter be provided by law;

         (v)  Any and all costs and expenses which Lessor may have reasonably
    incurred as the result of Lessee's breach of this Lease, including costs
    and expenses of attempting to relet or actually reletting the Leased
    Premises or any portion thereof including, without limitation, legal
    expenses, attorneys' fees, real estate brokerage fees and the reasonable
    costs of alterations and repairs to the Leased Premises made in connection
    with the reletting of the Leased Premises.

        (vi)  Provided, however, that the amounts specified in subparagraphs
    (i) through (v) above shall be reduced to the extent Lessee can prove such
    damages can be or could have been mitigated by Lessor.

    (g)  Upon the event of the termination of this Lease for default as
provided under Paragraph 13 (f), Lessor shall immediately have the right to
relet or attempt to relet the Leased Premises or any portion thereof for a term
or terms which may at Lessor's option be less than or exceed the period which
would otherwise have constituted the balance of the term of this Lease and may
grant concessions or free rent for a reasonable period or periods for the
purpose of inducing such reletting.

                                        - 14 -

If Lessor is successful in reletting the Leased Premises or any portion thereof
prior to the payment by Lessee to Lessor of the amounts set forth in Paragraph
13 (f) or prior to an award of judgment for such amounts, the amounts owing
under subsections (ii), (iii) and (iv) of Paragraph 13 (f), if not already
reduced by reason of section 13 (f) (vi), shall be reduced by the amount which
the rental under the new Lease reduces Lessor's rental loss arising by virtue of
the termination of this Lease.

14.  NUISANCE ON ADJOINING PROPERTY

    Insofar as Lessor may have control of any premises in the Building
adjoining the Leased Premises, Lessor shall not use the same or permit the same

unlawful purpose or permit the maintenance of a nuisance thereon.

15.  PEACEABLE AND QUIET POSSESSION

    Lessor hereby covenants that Lessor has good right to Lease the Leased
Premises for the term of this Lease and that Lessee, upon paying the rent and
performing and observing the other covenants to be performed and kept by it as
provided in this Lease, shall have the peaceable and quiet possession of the
Leased Premises during the term.

16.  (a)  subject to the provisions of Paragraph 3 (d), if the real property
taxes and assessments levied against the Leased Premises are assessed to Lessor,
they shall initially be paid by Lessor.

    (b)  If such taxes and assessments are initially assessed to Lessee, they
shall be paid by Lessee, and Lessor shall reimburse Lessee upon demand the full
amount thereof. If Lessor does not so reimburse Lessee, Lessee shall have the

pursuant to the provisions Paragraph 3 (d), the full amount so paid be Lessee.

    (c)  All taxes levied against personal property, trade fixtures and real
property improvements made by and assessed to Lessee shall be paid by Lessee.
If such taxes, or any of them, are assessed to Lessor they shall be paid be

receipted tax bill, the full amount so paid by Lessor.

17. SURRENDER OF PREMISES

    Lessee, at the termination or expiration of its tenancy, shall surrender
the Leased Premises in as good order and condition as reasonable use shall
permit, deterioration, ordinary wear and tear and damage by the elements and
causes beyond Lessee's control excepted.

                                        - 15 -

Lessee shall remove all of its personal property (except carpets) and 
trade fixtures in accordance with Paragraph 8 (b).

18. ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING

    Lessee shall not assign this Lease nor sublet the Leased Premises or any
part thereof, without the prior written consent of Lessor, which consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld; except Lessor's consent shall not be required in
the case of a general assignment of all or a substantial part of Lessee's
business or an assignment of this Lease or sublease of all or any portion of the
Leased Premises to any wholly-owned subsidiary of Lessee or to any entity
controlled by or in common control with Lessee's.  Any assignment or subletting
in violation of the provisions of this Paragraph 18 shall be void and shall, at
the option of Lessor, terminate this Lease.

19. NOTICES OR DEMANDS

20  SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS
    
    This Lease shall ensure to the benefit of and be binding upon the
respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto.

21. SUBORDINATION

    This Lease shall at the option of the Lessor be subject and subordinate to
the lien of any and all mortgages or deeds of trust now or that may at any time
hereafter be placed upon the Building, the land on which it is located or the
leasehold estate therein and to any agreements at any time made modifying or
supplementing any such mortgages or deeds of trust.  Lessee shall, upon the
demand of Lessor, execute and deliver such further instruments evidencing the
subordination of this Lease to the lien of the aforesaid mortgages or deeds of
trust, as may be desired

02/L33                                 - 16 -                           04/04/90
                                                                   Rev. 05/03/90

by any mortgagee or beneficiary.  Provided, however, as notwithstanding such
subordination, so long as Lessee is not in default of any of its obligations
hereunder, Lessee shall be entitled to remain in possession of the Leased
Premises on the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease and any successor
to Lessor shall make no attempt to interfere with the rights and benefits
granted Lessee hereunder so long as Lessee is not in default of any of its
obligations hereunder.

22. RULES AND REGULATIONS

    All reasonable rules and regulations which have heretofore been adopted or
which may hereafter be adopted by Lessor for the operation, safety, care and
cleanliness of the Leased Premises, the Building and the Kaiser Center, and the
preservation of good order therein are, except to the extend they may be
inconsistent with or contrary to the terms of this Lease, hereby expressly made
a part hereof and shall be complied with by Lessee.  

23. PARKING

    During the term of this lease, Lessee shall have the option of entering
into month-to-month contracts, on Lessor's standard parking agreement form for
any number of parking stalls in Kaiser Center parking facilitates up to a
maximum of one (1) stall per 1,100 rentable square feet occupied by lessee up to
a maximum of forty (40) stalls at the applicable monthly parking rates in effect
from time to time.  Lessee may elect to have up to 40% of its parking stalls
provided in covered parking.  Nothing herein contained shall preclude Lessee
from applying and contracting for the use of additional parking stalls in said
facilities on terms and conditions acceptable to the parties.  Notwithstanding
anything herein contained to the contrary, the option herein granted to Lessee
may be terminated by Lessor with respect to any or all of the parking stalls
upon the failure of Lessee or any person to whom Lessee has assigned any of the
parking stalls to comply with any rules or regulations issued by Lessor for the
operation of the parking facilities or upon the failure of the Lessee or any
person to whom Lessee has assigned any parking stall to perform the obligations
under the parking agreement.

24. RENEWAL

    If this lease is still in force and Lessee has fully complied with and
performed all of its covenants, terms and conditions, Lessee may request, by
written notice given to Lessor before November 1, 1994, an extension of this
Lease through the tenth anniversary of the commencement of term, at such rates
(including improvement allowances) as may be agreed upon as being at market for
a full-service, first-class office building in the Oakland high-rise office
building market in the Oakland/Lake Merritt financial district, or as arrived at
by appraisal as provided herein, and otherwise on all the same applicable terms
and 

02/L33                                 - 17 -                           04/04/90
                                                                   Rev. 05/03/90

conditions stated herein, except that during the option term the definition of
the Base Expense Year in Paragraph 3 (d) (1) shall be the 12-month period
commencing January 1, 1995.  If the parties agree upon the rent for such
extended term, they shall thereupon enter into an extension of this Lease. 
Providing no broker's commission is required, Lessee shall have a right to renew
at a rate equal to no more than 95% of the market rate.  If Lessee and Lessor
shall not have agreed upon the market rate by January 1, 1995, then the market
rate shall be determined by a real estate appraiser or board of real estate
appraisers selected as follows:

    (1)  Lessor and Lessee shall select a mutually acceptable real estate
appraiser in not more than (15) days. 

    (2)  If Lessor and Lessee are unable to select said appraiser within said
time, then said market rate shall be determined by a board of three real estate
appraisers which shall be selected as follows within fifteen (15) days after the
time set for selecting the appraiser referred to above, Lessor and Lessee shall
each select one appraiser and the third appraiser shall be selected by the two
appraisers so appointed by Lessor and Lessee within fifteen (15) days
thereafter.  

    (3)  The appraisals made by the appraiser referred to above, or concurred
in by all or any two members of the board of appraisers referred to above, as
the case may be, shall be final and binding upon Lessor and Lessee. The fees and
expenses of all appraisers exclusively appointed by each party hereto shall be
borne by the party making such appointment, and the fees and expenses for all
other appraisers shall be borne and paid equally by Lessor and Lessee.

    (4)  If Lessee is not willing to accept a rental equal to the rate as
established by said appraisal, Lessee may, within sixty (60) days of learning
said rate, give Lessor six months' written notice of the termination of this
Lease and upon the expiration of said six-month period following such notice
this Lease shall absolutely cease and terminate.  If Lessee so elects not to
accept the rate determined by said appraisal and to terminate this Lease, Lessee
shall reimburse all of Lessor's out-of-pocket costs directly incurred in such
appraisal and Lessor shall have the right any time after June 30, 1995 to
terminate any hold-over tenancy of Lessee upon thirty (30) days' prior written
notice.  Between July 1, 1995 and the effective date of termination, Lessee
shall pay rent for the Leased Premises equal to the rate as determined above.

25. RIGHTS TO REMAINDER OF 25TH FLOOR

    Lessee may at any time during the term of this Lease or any extension
hereof, so long as Lessee has materially complied with and performed all its
covenants, terms and conditions hereunder, lease from Lessor all or any portion
of the remainder of the 25th Floor which is  

02/L33                                 - 18 -                          04/04/90
                                                                  Rev. 05/03/90

not already leased to a third party, such areas to be mutually agreed upon so as
to avoid unleaseable areas being left on the portions of the 25th Floor not
occupied by Lessee.  Lessee shall also, during term or any renewal hereof, have
a right of first refusal for any space on the 25th Floor which Lessor intents to
lease to a third party, provided that Lessee gives notice of acceptance within,
and payment of rent for such space at the rate specified hereafter is commenced
within, 30 days after Lessor gives notice of availability to Lessee and said
space is vacated by its prior tenant.  If such space is to be made available to
a third party on substantially different economic terms than the economic terms 
upon which that space was previously made available to Lessee, Lessor must give
Lessee thirty (30) days notice of availability of such space on such revised
economic terms before renting such space to a third party.  Any additional space
leased by Lessee pursuant to the provisions of this Paragraph 25 shall be at a
rental rate (including improvement allowances) equal to 95% of the rate which
Lessor and Lessee agree is the then fair market rental rate for a full-service,
first-class office building in the Oakland high-rise office building market in
the Oakland/Lake Merritt financial district.  (No real estate commission shall
be payable by Lessor on account of this Lease.)  If Lessor and Lessee are unable
to agree upon said rate by January 1, 1990, the parties shall appoint and share
the  costs of a mutually agreeable MAI appraiser to determine the then current
market rate.  If lessor and lessee are unable to select a mutually acceptable
appraiser by January 15, 1990, said rate shall be determined by a board of three
MAI real estate appraisers which shall be selected as follows:  Within fifteen
(15) days after the time set for selecting the appraiser referred to above,
Lessor and Lessee shall each select one appraiser and the third appraiser shall
be selected by the two appraisers so appointed by Lessor and Lessee within 15
days thereafter.  The appraisal made by the appraiser referred to above, or
concurred in by all or any two members of the board appraisers referred to
above, as the case may be, shall be final.  The fees and expenses of all
appraisers exclusive appointed by each party hereto shall be borne by the party
making such appointment, and the fees and expenses for all other appraisers
shall be borne and paid equally by Lessor and Lessee.  If Lessee is not willing
to accept a rental equal to 95% of the fair market rate as established by said
appraisal, Lessee may, within sixty (60) days of learning said rate, give to
Lessor six months' written notice of the termination of this Lease and upon the
expiration of said six-month period following such notice this Lease shall
absolutely cease and terminate.  If Lessee so elects not to accept the rate
determined by said appraisal and to so terminate this Lease, Lessee shall
reimburse all of Lessor's out-of-pocket costs directly incurred in such
appraisal and Lessor shall have the right, any time after June 30, 1990, to
terminate any hold-over tenancy of Lessee upon thirty (30) days' prior written
notice.  Between July 1, 1990 and the effective date of termination, Lessee
shall pay rent for the Leased Premises equal to 95% of the appraised market rate
as determined above.  All other applicable terms and conditions of the Lease
remain in effect.  So long as Lessee occupies at least 20,000 square feet of
space on the 25th Floor, Lessor shall not lease any remaining space on the 25th
Floor to third parties for a term exceeding

02/L33                                 - 19 -                          04/04/90
                                                                  Rev. 05/03/90

five (5) years without the prior written consent of Lessee, which consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld.  In no event shall Lessor lease any space on the
25th Floor to any party engaged in the business of insurance without the prior
written consent of Lessee, nor shall any portion of the 25th Floor be leased to
any party not conducting normally accepted administrative, professional and/or
clerical-type business activities.  

26. MISCELLANEOUS

    (a)  TIME. Time is the essence of this Lease.

    (b)  WAIVER.  The waiver by Lessor of any breach of any term, covenant or
condition herein contained shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such term,
covenant or condition or any subsequent breach of the same or any other term,
covenant or condition herein contained.  The subsequent acceptance of rent
hereunder by Lessor shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding breach
by Lessee of any term, covenant or condition of this Lease, other than the
failure of Lessee to pay the particular rental so accepted, regardless of the
Lessor's knowledge of such preceding breach at the time of acceptance of such
rent. 

    (c)  REMEDIES.  The remedies herein given shall be cumulative and are given
without impairing any other rights or remedies of either party by any statute or
law now existing or hereinafter enacted and the exercise of any one remedy by
either party shall not exclude the exercise of any other remedy.

    (d)  INTERPRETATION, CAPTIONS.  The language in all parts of this Lease
shall in all respects be construed as a whole, according to its fair meaning,
and not strictly for or against either Lessor or Lessee.  The paragraph captions
in this lease are for convenience only and are not to be construed as part of
this Lease or in any way limiting or amplifying the provisions hereof.

    (e)  ATTORNMENT.  If the prime lease referred to in Paragraph 1(a) above
under which Lessor is the tenant is terminated by operation of law or otherwise,
Lessee shall attorn to the landlord under such prime lease or to such other
party or parties as have succeeded to the interest of said landlord in said
prime lease; and, in the event of such attornment, this Lease shall continue in
effect under the same conditions, covenants and terms as are contained herein,
provided, however, that no such attornment shall be required if Lessee is
physically evicted in the proceedings which terminate said prime lease.

    (f) SEVERABILITY.  If any term or provision of this Lease or the
application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent, be
invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of
such term or provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which
it is held invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected there by and each
term and provision of this Lease shall be valid and enforced to the fullest
extent permitted by law.

02/L33                                 - 20 -                          04/04/90
                                                                  Rev. 05/03/90

    (h) ENTIRE AGREEMENT.  Lessor and Lessee each acknowledge and agree that
they have not relied upon any statement, representation agreement or warranty
except as may be expressly set forth in this Lease, and Lessor and Lessee agree
that no amendment or modification of this Lease shall be valid or binding unless
in writing and duly executed by Lessor and Lessee.  No provision of this lease
shall be altered, waived or amended except in writing duly executed by Lessor
and Lessee.

1.  Tenants, their agents, employees or patrons, shall not loiter in or in any
    way obstruct the driveways, sidewalks, entrances, lobbies, corridors,
    stairways, escalators and elevators of Kaiser Center, and shall use the
    same only as a means of passage to and from their respective leased
    premises.

2.  Tenants, their agents, employees or patrons, shall not make or permit any
    improper noises in the Kaiser Building, or interfere in any way with other
    Tenants or those having business with such other Tenants.

3.  Tenants, their agents, employees or patrons, shall not use any part of the
    Kaiser Building for lodging or sleeping purposes, and cooking and eating of
    meals is prohibited except in those parts of the Kaiser Building
    specifically designated by Lessor for those functions.

4.  If Tenant plans to have a gathering in the premises such as an open house,
    holiday celebration, etc., Tenant must notify Kaiser Center, Inc. leasing
    office at least one week prior to the event in order to confirm that such
    usage is in conformance with its lease and to make proper arrangements for
    security, heat and air-conditioning, parking and janitorial services. If
    alcoholic beverages are to be served during the gathering, the caterer must
    have a proper permit to dispense such beverages and Tenant's insurance must
    adequately cover such event. If dignitaries or political figures are
    invited, tenant must notify Kaiser Center, Inc.'s leasing/security office
    accordingly

5.  No tarde, occupation, game or business shall be conducted in the Kaiser
    Building which shall be unlawful or of a so-called "get-rich-quick"
    character, nor shall the leased premises be used for gambling of any nature
    or for any immoral purpose whatsoever.

6.  Tenants, their agents and employees, shall not throw substances of any kind
    out of the doors or down the passages of the Kaiser Building, or bring into

8.  Windows, glass doors and store fronts shall not be covered or obstructed.
    Curtains or drapes, other than those provided by Lessor, may be used only
    upon specific approval of Lessor.

9.  No sign, advertisement, or notice shall be inscribed, painted or fixed on

11. Tenants shall not in any way deface floors, ceilings, partitions, walls or
    other surfaces, except they may drive nails, screw or drill into, to adhere
    to any surface for the purpose of affixing articles of decoration and/or
    equipment customarily used in business offices within a first-class
    building.

12. Under the carpeting of each floor there are two metal pans which are about
    six inches wide and four inches deep and run the length of the building.
    One of these contains electrical wiring and is not to be disturbed by the
    Tenant without the consent and under the direction of Lessor. The other is
    to accommodate telephone and other communication equipment which is to be
    provided and maintained by the Tenant at its expense. To gain access to
    this pan it is necessary to lift the carpeting and remove the pan lid.
    Lessor will provide this service to Tenant for a fee. In any event it is
    the Tenant's responsibility to guard these pans when they are open and
    prevent injury or damage to persons or property and Lessor is to be held
    harmless by Tenant from any costs or liability resulting from the opening
    of these pans.

13. The number, size, type and capacity of pieces of electrical equipment and
    lighting of any kind used by the Tenants are subject to approval by Lessor.
    Tenants receiving electrical power without additional charge as part of the
    Lease may be charged separately for power used by pieces of office and
    other electrical equipment, if warranted in the sole opinion of Lessor.

14. All freight shall be moved into, within and out of the Kaiser Building
    according to such regulations as Lessor may reasonably prescribe. Lessor
    shall not be responsible for loss or damage to any such freight from any
    cause or causes whatsoever.

15. Lessor shall prescribe the times and methods of moving any item of Tenant's
    property in or out of the Kaiser Building. Lessor shall not be responsible
    for any loss or damage to any such property from any cause whatsoever,
    except LESSOR's sole negligence or LESSOR's intentional tortious acts, and
    all damage done to the Kaiser Building by moving or maintaining any
    Tenant's property shall be repaired to Lessor's full satisfaction at the
    sole expense of Tenant.

16. Lessor may, at its sole discretion, limit the weight or size, or may
    prescribe the location of safes, file cabinets, machinery and other
    property brought into the Kaiser Building.

17. Tenants shall not place any additional lock or locks on any door, hatchway
    or other opening unless written consent of Lessor shall have first been
    obtained. Initial keys shall be furnished by Lessor for the entrance to
    the suite and two (2) keys for each private office within the suite;
    additional keys will be at the expense of Tenant. All keys shall be
    surrendered to Lessor upon expiration or other termination of this lease.

                                        - 2 -

18. At the end of each wing are located emergency exits. Fire codes require
    that these remain closed at all times excepting when they are used for
    ingress or egress. However, the stairways may be used for access to
    adjacent floors by multifloor Tenants as long as Tenant holds Lessor free
    from any liability from using these stairways.

19. Tenants shall not employ any person or persons other than those provided or
    approved in advance by Lessor for the purpose of cleaning the premises
    without the consent of Lessor. Lessor shall be in no way liable or
    responsible to any Tenant for any loss of property located in or upon the
    leased premises, however occurring, except as a result of LESSOR's sole
    negligence or intentional tortious acts.

20. Tenants shall not employ any person or persons other than those provided or
    approved in advance by Lessor for the purpose of maintaining, repairing,
    revising, modifying or constructing within the leased premises without the
    consent of Lessor.

21. Requirements of Tenants will be attended to only upon application to
    Lessor's designated representatives. Lessor's employees shall not perform
    any work or do anything outside of their regular duties unless under
    special instructions from said representatives.

22. Towels, laundry, florist service, bottled water and similar service shall
    be furnished to Tenants only by such persons as may be satisfactory to
    Lessor.

23. Lessor shall have sole control of directories in the lobbies and other
    common areas of the Kaiser Building, and only such names as have been
    approved by Lessor will be placed thereon. Initial signage will be provided
    by Lessor at no cost to Tenant. Any additional names added or removed from
    existing directories will be at the expense of Tenant. Tenant shall request
    any addition/deletion of names in writing.

24. At any time while the the Kaiser Building is under security control, any
    person entering or leaving may be required to display a pass, sign a
    building register or otherwise satisfy the security watchman on duty as to
    his business therein; anyone not satisfying the watchman as to his right to
    enter the Kaiser Building may be excluded by him.

25. Lessor may require written authorization from an Tenant before permitting
    anyone to remove Tenant's office equipment or other personal property from
    the Kaiser Building.

26. Lessor reserves the right but shall not be held obligated to exclude or
    reject from the building any or all solicitors, canvassers or peddlers, and
    also any other class of persons and individuals who conduct themselves in
    such a manner as, in the opinion of Lessor, to be any annoyance to any of
    the Tenants of the Kaiser Building or to interfere with Lessor's operation
    thereof or to be otherwise undesirable.

27. Lessor may waive any one or more of these Rules and Regulations for the
    benefit of any particular Tenant or Tenants of the Kaiser Building, but

                                        - 3 -

    no such waiver by Lessor shall be construed as a waiver of such Rules and
    Regulations in favor of any other Tenant or Tenants, nor prevent Lessor
    from thereafter enforcing any such Rules and Regulations against any or all
    of the Tenants of the Kaiser Building.

28. Lessor reserves the right to make such other and further Rules and
    Regulations as in its judgment may from time to time be necessary for the
    safety and cleanliness of, and for the preservation of good order in the
    Kaiser Building.

29. These Rules and Regulations are in addition to, and shall not be construed
    to in any way modify, alter or amend, in whole or in part, the terms,
    conditions and covenants of the Lease.

30. Tenant, its employees or patrons will obey the City of Oakland Smoking
    Ordinance which, amongst other things, prohibits smoking in elevators,
    building common areas and escalators.

31. Tenant has been informed that the interior blinds on the building window
    wall are an integral part of the building heating, ventilation and air
    conditioning system. If Tenant fails to close the blinds, Lessor cannot
    guarantee the comfort level of the Premise.
