AMERICAN INDUSTRIAL REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATION
1. Parties. This Lease, dated, for reference purposes only, September 1, 1993,
is made by and between B & K Investment Company (herein called "Lessor") and
Specialty Extrusions Limited (herein called "Lessee").
2. Premises. Lessor hereby leases to Lessee and Lessee leases from Lessor for
the term, at the rental, and upon all of the conditions set forth herein, that
certain real property situated in the County of Orange State of California
commonly known as 801 South Acacia Avenue (Portion of larger) and described as
an approximately 15,000 square foot metal building and adjacent mobile office on
approximately one (1) acre of land as shown on Exhibit A attached hereto and
made a part hereof. Said real property including the land and all improvements
therein, is herein called "the Premises".
3.1 Term. The term of this Lease shall be for five (5) years commencing on
September 1, 1993 and ending on August 31, 1998 unless sooner terminated
pursuant to any provision hereof.
3.2 Delay in Possession. Notwithstanding said commencement date, if for any
reason Lessor cannot deliver possession of the Premises to Lessee on said date,
Lessor shall not be subject to any liability therefor, nor shall such failure
affect the validity of this Lease or the obligations of Lessee hereunder or
extend the term hereof, but in such case, Lessee shall not be obligated to pay
rent until possession of the Premises is tendered to Lessee; provided, however,
that if Lessor shall not have delivered possession of the Premises within sixty
(60) days from said commencement date, Lessee may, at Lessee's option, by notice
in writing to Lessor within ten (10) days thereafter, cancel this Lease, in
which event the parties shall be discharged from all obligations hereunder;
provided further, however, that if such written notice of Lessee is not received
by Lessor within said ten (10) day period, Lessee's right to cancel this Lease
hereunder shall terminate and be of no further force or effect.
3.3 Early Possession. If Lessee occupies the Premises prior to said
commencement date, such occupancy shall be subject to all provisions hereof,
such occupancy shall not advance the termination date, and Lessee shall pay rent
for such period at the initial monthly rates set forth below.
4. Rent. Lessee shall pay to Lessor as rent for the Premises, monthly payments
of $7,717.00, in advance, on the first day of each month of the term hereof.
Lessee shall pay Lessor upon the execution hereof $7,717.00 as rent for the
month of September, 1993. Rent for any period during the term hereof which is
for less than one month shall be a pro rata portion of the monthly installment.
Rent shall be payable in lawful money of the United States to Lessor at the
address stated herein or to such other persons or at such other places as Lessor
may designate in writing.
5. Security Deposit. Lessee's $5,000.00 security deposit shall remain as
security for Lessee's faithful performance of Lessee's obligations hereunder. If
Lessee fails to pay rent or other charges due hereunder, or otherwise defaults
with respect to any provision of this Lease, Lessor may use, apply or retain all
or any portion of said deposit for the payment of any rent or other charge in
default or for the payment of any other sum to which Lessor may become obligated
by reason of Lessee's default, or to compensate Lessor for any loss or damage
which Lessor may suffer thereby. If Lessor so uses or applies all or any portion
of said deposit Lessee shall within ten (10) days after written demand therefor
deposit cash with Lessor in an amount sufficient to restore said deposit to the
full amount hereinabove stated and Lessee's failure to do so shall be a
material breach of this Lease. If the monthly rent shall, from time to time,
increase during the term of this Lease, Lessee shall thereupon deposit with
Lessor additional security deposit so that the amount of security deposit held
by Lessor shall at all times bear the same proportion to current rent as the
original security deposit bears to the original monthly rent set forth in
paragraph 4 hereof. Lessor shall not be required to keep said deposit separate
from its general accounts. If Lessee performs all of Lessee's obligations
hereunder, said deposit, or so much thereof as has not theretofore been applied
by Lessor, shall be returned, without payment of interest or other increment for
its use, to Lessee (or, at Lessor's option, to the last assignee, if any, of
Lessee's interest hereunder) at the expiration of the term hereof, and after
Lessee has vacated the Premises. No trust relationship is created herein between
Lessor and Lessee with respect to said Security Deposit.
6.1 Use. The Premises shall be used and occupied only for aluminum
extrusion and related legal activities or any other use which is reasonably
comparable and for no other purpose.
6.2 Compliance with Law.
(a) Lessor warrants to Lessee that the Premises, in its state existing on
the date that the Lease term commences, but without regard to the use for which
Lessee will use or has used the Premises, does not violate any covenants or
restrictions of record, or any applicable building code, regulation or ordinance
in effect on such Lease term commencement date. In the event it is determined
that this warranty has been violated, then it shall be the obligation of the
Lessor, after written notice from Lessee, to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost and
expense, rectify any such violation. In the event Lessee does not give to Lessor
written notice of violation of this warranty within six months from the date
that the Lease term commences, the correction of same shall be the obligation of
the Lessee at Lessee's sole cost. The warranty contained in this paragraph 6.2
(a) shall be of no force or effect if, prior to the date of this Lease, Lessee
was the owner or occupant of the Premises, and, in such event, Lessee shall
correct any such violation at Lessee's sole cost.
(b) Except as provided in paragraph 6.2(a), Lessee shall, at Lessee's
expense, comply promptly with all applicable statutes, ordinances, rules,
regulations, orders, covenants and restrictions of record, and requirements in
effect during the term or any part of the term hereof, regulating the use by
Lessee of the Premises. Lessee shall not use nor permit the use of the Premises
in any manner that will tend to create waste or a nuisance or, if there shall be
more than one tenant in the building containing the Premises, shall tend to
disturb such other tenants.
6.3 Condition of Premises.
(a) Lessor shall deliver the Premises to Lessee clean and free of debris on
lease commencement date (unless Lessee is already in possession) and Lessor
further warrants to Lessee that the plumbing, lighting, air conditioning,
heating, and loading doors in the Premises shall be in good operating condition
on the Lease commencement date. In the event that it is determined that this
warranty has been violated, then it shall be the obligation of Lessor, after
receipt of written notice from Lessee setting forth with specificity the nature
of the violation, to promptly, at Lessor's sole cost, rectify such violation.
Lessee's failure to give such written notice to Lessor within thirty (30) days
after the Lease commencement date shall cause the conclusive presumption that
Lessor has complied with all of Lessor's obligations hereunder. The warranty
contained in this paragraph 6.3(a) shall be of no force or effect if prior to
the date of this Lease, Lessee was the owner or occupant of the Premises.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, Lessee hereby accepts the
Premises in their condition existing as of the Lease commencement date or the
date that Lessee takes possession of the Premises, whichever is earlier, subject
to all applicable
zoning, municipal, county and state laws, ordinances and regulations governing
and regulating the use of the Premises, and any covenants or restrictions of
record and accepts this Lease subject thereto and to all matters disclosed
thereby and by any exhibits attached hereto. Lessee acknowledges that neither
Lessor nor Lessor's agent has made any representation or warranty as to the
present or future suitability of the Premises for the conduct of Lessee's
7. Maintenance, Repairs and Alterations.
7.1 Lessee's Obligations. Lessee shall keep in good order, condition and
repair the Premises and every part thereof, structural and non structural,
(whether or not such portion of the Premises requiring repair, or the means of
repairing the same are reasonably or readily accessible to Lessee, and whether
or not the need for such repairs occurs as a result of Lessee's use, any prior
use, the elements or the age of such portion of the Premises) including, without
limiting the generality of the foregoing, all plumbing, heating, air
conditioning, (Lessee shall procure and maintain, at Lessee's expense, an air
conditioning system maintenance contract) ventilating, electrical, lighting
facilities and equipment within the Premises, fixtures, walls (interior and
exterior), foundations, ceilings, roofs (interior and exterior), floors,
windows, doors, plate glass and skylights located within the Premises, and all
landscaping, driveways, parking lots, fences and signs located on the Premises
and sidewalks and parkways adjacent to the Premises.
7.1.1 Toxic Waste Inspection. Lessee at Lessee's expense during the period
between ninety (90) and forty-five (45) days prior to the expiration of the
lease shall cause the premises to be inspected for toxic materials by a licensed
environmental inspection service approved in writing by Lessor and shall provide
Lessor with a written report issued by such a licensed environmental inspection
service showing the results of the inspection and a determination of what
corrective measures should be taken, if any, to eliminate such toxic materials,
if any, to the extent necessary to meet the standards set out in the federal,
state, county or municipal codes as to the presence of such materials. Lessee
agrees that at its own expense, it will have such corrective measures performed
and completed before the expiration of the lease.
7.2 Surrender. On the last day of the term hereof, or on any sooner
termination, Lessee shall surrender the Premises to Lessor in the same condition
as when received, ordinary wear and tear expected, clean and free of debris.
Lessee shall repair any damage to the Premises occasioned by the installation or
removal of Lessee's trade fixtures, furnishings and equipment. Notwithstanding
anything to the contrary otherwise stated in this Lease, Lessee shall leave the
air lines, power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting fixtures,
space heaters, air conditioning, plumbing and fencing on the premises in good
7.3 Lessor's Rights. If Lease fails to perform Lessee's obligations under
this Paragraph 7, or under any other paragraph of this Lease, Lessor may at its
option (but shall not be required to) enter upon the Premises after ten (10)
days' prior written notice to Lessee (except in the case of any emergency, in
which case no notice shall be required), perform such obligations on Lessee's
behalf and put the same in good order, condition and repair, and the cost
thereof together with interest thereon at the maximum rate then allowable by law
shall become due and payable as additional rental to Lessor together with
Lessee's next rental installment.
7.4 Lessor's Obligations. Except for the obligations of Lessor under
Paragraph 6.2(a) and 6.3(a) (relating to Lessor's warranty), Paragraph 9
(relating to destruction of the Premises) and under Paragraph 14 (relating to
condemnation of the Premises), it is intended by the parties hereto that Lessor
have no obligations, in any manner whatsoever, to repair and maintain the
Premises nor the building located thereon nor the equipment therein, whether
structural or non structural, all of which obligations are intended to be that
of the Lessee under Paragraph 7.1 hereof. Lessee expressly waives the benefit of
any statute now or hereinafter in effect which would otherwise afford Lessee the
right to make repairs at Lessor's expense or to terminate this Lease because of
Lessor's failure to keep the premises in good order, condition and repair.
7.5 Alterations and Additions.
(a) Lessee shall not, without Lessor's prior written consent make any
alterations, improvements, additions, or Utility Installations in, on or about
the Premises, except for nonstructural alterations not exceeding $2,500 in
cumulative costs during the term of this Lease. In any event, whether or not in
excess of $2,500 in cumulative cost, Lessee shall make no change or alteration
to the exterior of the Premises nor the exterior of the building(s) on the
Premises without Lessor's prior written consent. As used in this Paragraph 7.5
the term "Utility Installation" shall mean carpeting, window coverings, air
lines, power panels, electrical distribution systems, lighting fixtures, space
heaters, air conditioning, plumbing, and fencing. Lessor may require that Lessee
remove any or all of said alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations at the expiration of the term, and restore the Premises to their
prior condition. Lessor may require Lessee to provide Lessor, at Lessee's sole
cost and expense, a lien and completion bond in an amount equal to one and
one-half times the estimated cost of such improvements, to insure Lessor against
any liability for mechanic's and materialmen's liens and to insure completion of
the work. Should Lessee make any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility
Installations without the prior approval of Lessor, Lessor may require that
Lessee remove any or all of the same.
(b) Any alterations, improvements, additions or Utility Installations in, or
about the Premises that Lessee shall desire to make and which requires the
consent of the Lessor shall be presented to Lessor in written form, with
proposed detailed plans. If Lessor shall give its consent, the consent shall be
deemed conditioned upon Lessee acquiring a permit to do so from appropriate
governmental agencies, the furnishing of a copy thereof to Lessor prior to the
commencement of the work and the compliance by Lessee of all conditions of said
permit in a prompt and expeditious manner.
(c) Lessee shall pay, when due, all claims for labor or materials furnished
or alleged to have been furnished to or for Lessee at or for use in the
Premises, which claims are or may be secured by any mechanics' or materialmen's
lien against the Premises or any interest therein. Lessee shall give Lessor not
less than ten (10) days' notice prior to the commencement of any work in the
Premises, and Lessor shall have the right to post notices of non-responsibility
in or on the Premises as provided by law. If Lessee shall, in good faith,
contest the validity of any such lien, claim or demand, then Lessee shall, at
its sole expense defend itself and Lessor against the same and shall pay and
satisfy any such adverse judgment that may be rendered thereon before the
enforcement thereof against the Lessor or the Premises, upon the condition that
if Lessor shall require, Lessee shall furnish to Lessor a surety bond
satisfactory to Lessor in an amount equal to such contested lien claim or demand
indemnifying Lessor against liability for the same and holding the Premises free
from the effect of such lien or claim. In addition, Lessor may require Lessee to
pay Lessor's attorneys fees and costs in participating in such action if Lessor
shall decide it is to its best interest to do so.
(d) Unless Lessor requires their removal, as set forth in Paragraph 7.5(a),
all alterations, improvements, additions and Utility Installations (whether or
not such Utility Installations constitute trade fixtures of Lessee), which may
be made on the Premises, shall become the property of Lessor and remain upon and
be surrendered with the Premises at the expiration of the term.
Notwithstanding the provisions of this Paragraph 7.5(d), Lessee's machinery and
equipment, other than that which is affixed to the Premises so that it cannot be
removed without material damage to the Premises, shall remain the property of
Lessee and may be removed by Lessee subject to the provisions of Paragraph 7.2.
8. Insurance Indemnity.
8.1 Insuring Party. As used in this Paragraph 8, the term "insuring party"
shall mean the party who has the obligation to obtain the Property Insurance
required hereunder. The insuring party shall be designated in Paragraph 46
hereof. In the event Lessor is the insuring party, Lessor shall also maintain
the liability insurance described in paragraph 8.2 hereof, in addition to, and
not in lieu of, the insurance required to be maintained by Lessee under said
paragraph 8.2, but Lessor shall not be required to name Lessee as an additional
insured on such policy. Whether the insuring party is the Lessor or the Lessee,
Lessee shall, as additional rent for the Premises, pay the cost of all insurance
required hereunder, except for that portion of the cost attributable to Lessor's
liability insurance coverage in excess of $1,000,000 per occurrence. If Lessor
is the insuring party Lessee shall, within ten (10) days following demand by
Lessor, reimburse Lessor for the cost of the insurance so obtained.
8.2 Liability Insurance. Lessee shall, at Lessee's expense obtain and keep
in force during the term of this Lease a policy of Combined Single Limit, Bodily
Injury and Property Damage insurance insuring Lessor and Lessee against any
liability arising out of the ownership, use, occupancy or maintenance of the
Premises and all areas appurtenant thereto. Such insurance shall be a combined
single limit policy in an amount not less than $500,000 per occurrence. The
policy shall insure performance by Lessee of the indemnity provisions of this
Paragraph 8. The limits of said insurance shall not, however, limit the
liability of Lessee hereunder.
8.3 Property Insurance.
(a) The insuring party shall obtain and keep in force during the term of
this Lease a policy or policies of insurance covering loss or damage to the
Premises, in the amount of the full replacement value thereof, as the same may
exist from time to time, which replacement value is now $1,000,000.00, but in no
event less than the total amount required by lenders having liens on the
Premises, against all perils included within the classification of fire,
extended coverage, vandalism, malicious mischief, flood (in the event same is
required by a lender having a lien on the Premises), and special extended perils
("all risk" as such term is used in the insurance industry). Said insurance
shall provide for payment of loss thereunder to Lessor or to the holders of
mortgages or deeds of trust on the Premises. The insuring party shall, in
addition, obtain and keep in force during the term of this Lease a policy of
rental value insurance covering a period of one year, with loss payable to
Lessor, which insurance shall also cover all real estate taxes and insurance
costs for said period. A stipulated value or agreed amount endorsement deleting
the coinsurance provision of the policy shall be procured with said insurance as
well as an automatic increase in insurance endorsement causing the increase in
annual property insurance coverage by 2% per quarter. If the insuring party
shall fail to procure and maintain said insurance the other party may, but shall
not be required to, procure and maintain the same, but at the expense of Lessee.
If such insurance coverage has a deductible clause, the deductible amount shall
not exceed $1,000 per occurrence, and Lessee shall be liable for such deductible
(b) If the Premises are part of a larger building, or if the Premises are
part of a group of buildings owned by Lessor which are adjacent to the Premises,
then Lessee shall pay for any increase in the property insurance of such other
building or buildings if said increase is caused by Lessee's acts, omissions,
use or occupancy of the Premises.
(c) If the Lessor is the insuring party the Lessor will not
insure Lessee's fixtures, equipment or tenant improvements unless the tenant
improvements have become a part of the Premises under paragraph 7, hereof. But
if Lessee is the insuring party the Lessee shall insure its fixtures, equipment
and tenant improvements.
8.4 Insurance Policies. Insurance required hereunder shall be in companies
holding a "General Policyholders Rating" of at least B plus, or such other
rating as may be required by a lender having a lien on the Premises, as set
forth in the most current issue of "Best's Insurance Guide". The insuring party
shall deliver to the other party copies of policies of such insurance or
certificates evidencing the existence and amounts of such insurance with loss
payable clauses as required by this paragraph 8. No such policy shall be
cancelable or subject to reduction of coverage or other modification except
after thirty (30) days' prior written notice to Lessor. If Lessee is the
insuring party Lessee shall, at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration
of such policies, furnish Lessor with renewals or "binders" thereof, or Lessor
may order such insurance and charge the cost thereof to Lessee, which amount
shall be payable by Lessee upon demand. Lessee shall not do or permit to be
done anything which shall invalidate the insurance policies referred to in
Paragraph 8.3. If Lessee does or permits to be done anything which shall
increase the cost of the insurance policies referred to in Paragraph 8.3, then
Lessee shall forthwith upon Lessor's demand reimburse Lessor for any additional
premiums attributable to any act or omission or operation of Lessee causing such
increase in the cost of insurance. If Lessor is the insuring party, and if the
insurance policies maintained hereunder cover other improvements in addition to
the Premises, Lessor shall deliver to Lessee a written statement setting forth
the amount of any such insurance cost increase and showing in reasonable detail
the manner in which it has been computed.
8.5 Waiver of Subrogation. Lessee and Lessor each hereby release and
relieve the other, and waive the entire right of recovery against the other for
loss or damage arising out of or incident to the perils insured against under
paragraph 8.3, which perils occur in, on or about the Premises, whether due to
the negligence of Lessor or Lessee or their agents, employees, contractors
and/or invitees. Lessee and Lessor shall, upon obtaining the policies of
insurance required hereunder, give notice to the insurance carrier or carriers
that the foregoing mutual waiver of subrogation is contained in this Lease.
8.6 Indemnity. Lessee shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessor from and
against any and all claims arising from Lessee's use of the Premises, or from
the conduct of Lessee's business or from any activity, work or things done,
permitted or suffered by Lessee in or about the Premises or elsewhere and shall
further indemnify and hold harmless Lessor from and against any and all claims
arising from any breach or default in the performance of any obligation on
Lessee's part to be performed under the terms of this Lease, or arising from any
negligence of the Lessee, or any of Lessee's agents, contractors, or employees,
and from and against all costs, attorney's fees, expenses and liabilities
incurred in the defense of any such claim or any action or proceeding brought
thereon; and in case any action proceeding be brought against Lessor be reason
of any such claim, Lessee upon notice from Lessor shall defend the same at
Lessee's expense by counsel satisfactory to Lessor. Lessee, as a material part
of the consideration to Lessor, hereby assume all risk of damage to property or
injury to persons, in, upon or about the Premises arising from any cause and
Lessee hereby waives all claims in respect thereof against Lessor.
8.7 Exemption of Lessor from Liability. Lessee hereby agrees that Lessor
shall not be liable for injury to Lessee's business or any loss of income
therefrom or for damage to the goods, wares, merchandise or other property of
Lessee, Lessee's employees, invitees, customers, or any other person in or about
the Premises, nor shall Lessor be liable for injury to the person of Lessee,
Lessee's employees, agents or contractors, whether such
damage or injury is caused by or results from fire, steam, electricity, gas,
water or rain, or from the breakage, leakage, obstruction or other defects of
pipes, sprinklers, wires, appliances, plumbing, air conditioning or lighting
fixtures, or from any other cause, whether the said damage or injury results
from conditions arising upon the Premises or upon other portions of the building
of which the Premises are a part, or from other sources or places and regardless
of whether the cause of such damage or injury or the means of repairing the same
is inaccessible to Lessee. Lessor shall not be liable for any damages arising
from any act or neglect of any other tenant, if any, of the building in which
the Premises are located.

(a) "Premises Partial Damage" shall herein mean damage or destruction to the
Premises to the extent that the cost of repair is less than 50% of the then
replacement cost of the Premises. "Premises Building Partial Damage" shall
herein mean damage or destruction to the building of which the Premises are a
part to the extent that the cost of repair is less than 50% of the then
replacement cost of such building as a whole.

by an event required to be covered by the insurance described in paragraph 8.
9.2 Partial Damage -- Insured Loss. Subject to the provisions of paragraphs
9.4, 9.5, and 9.6, if at anytime during the term of this Lease there is damage
which is an Insured Loss and which fails into the classification of Premises
Partial Damage or Premises Building Partial Damage, then Lessor shall, at
Lessor's expense, repair such damage, but not Lessee's fixtures, equipment or
tenant improvements unless the same become a part of the Premises pursuant to
Paragraph 7.5 hereof as soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall
continue in full force and effect. Notwithstanding the above, if the Lessee is
the insuring party, and if the insurance proceeds received by Lessor are not
sufficient to effect such repair, Lessor shall give notice to Lessee of the
amount required in addition to the insurance proceeds to effect such repair.
Lessee shall contribute the required amount to Lessor within ten days after
Lessee has received notice from Lessor of the shortage in the insurance. When
Lessee shall contribute such amount to Lessor, Lessor shall make such repairs as
soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall continue in full force and
effect. Lessee shall in no event have any right to reimbursement for any such
amounts so contributed.
9.3 Partial Damage -- Uninsured Loss. Subject to the provisions of
Paragraphs 9.4, 9.5 and 9.6, at any time during the term of this Lease there is
damage which is not an Insured Loss and which falls within the classification of
Premises Partial Damage or Premises Building Partial Damage, unless caused by a
negligent or willful act of Lessee (in which event Lessee shall make the repairs
at Lessee's expense). Lessor may at Lessor's option either (i) repair such
damage as soon as reasonably possible at Lessor's expense, in which event this
Lease shall continue in full force and effect, or (ii) give written notice to
Lessee within thirty (30) days after the date of the occurrence of such damage
of Lessor's intention to cancel and terminate this Lessee, as of the date of the
occurrence of such damage. In the event Lessor elects to give such notice of
Lessor's intention to cancel and terminate this Lease, Lessee shall have the
right within ten (10) days after the receipt of such notice to give
written notice to Lessor of Lessee's intention to repair such damage at Lessee's
expense, without reimbursement from Lessor, in which event this Lease shall
continue in full force and effect, and Lessee shall proceed to make such repairs
as soon as reasonably possible. If Lessee does not give such notice within such
10-day period this Lease shall be canceled and terminated as of the date of the
occurrence of such damage.
9.4 Total Destruction. If at any time during the term of this Lease there
is damage, whether or not an Insured Loss (including destruction required by
any authorized public authority), which falls into the classification of
Premises Total Destruction or Premises Building Total Destruction, this lease
shall automatically terminate as of the date of such total destruction.
9.5 Damage Near End of Term.
(a) If at any time during the last six months of the term of this Lease
there is damage, whether or not an Insured Loss, which falls within the
classification of Premises Partial Damage, Lessor may at Lessor's option cancel
and terminate this Lease as of the date of occurrence of such damage by giving
written notice to Lessee of Lessor's election to do so within 30 days after the
date of occurrence of such damage.
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph 9.5(a), in the event that Lessee has an option
to extend or renew this Lease, and the time within which said option may be
exercised has not yet expired, Lessee shall exercise such option, if it is to be
exercised at all, no later than 20 days after the occurrence of an Insured Loss
falling within the classification of Premises Partial Damage during the last six
months of the term of this Lease. If Lessee duly exercises such option during
said 20 day period, Lessor shall, at Lessor's expense, repair such damage as
soon as reasonably possible and this Lease shall continue in full force and
effect. If Lessee fails to exercise such option during said 20 day period, then
Lessor may at Lessor's option terminate and cancel this Lease as of the
expiration of said 20 day period by giving written notice to Lessee of Lessor's
election to do so within 10 days after the expiration of said 20 day period,
notwithstanding any term or provision in the grant of option to the contrary.
9.6 Abatement of Rent; Lessee's Remedies.
(a) In the event of damage described in paragraphs 9.2 or 9.3, through no
fault of Lessee, and Lessor or Lessee repairs or restores the Premises pursuant
to the provisions of this Paragraph 9, the rent payable hereunder for the period
during which such damage, repair or restoration continues shall be abated in
proportion to the degree to which Lessee's use of the Premises is impaired.

for any damage suffered by reason of any such damage, destruction, repair or

provisions of this Paragraph 9 and shall not commence such repair or restoration
within 90 days after such obligations shall accrue, Lessee may at Lessee's
option cancel and terminate this Lease by giving Lessor written notice of
Lessee's election to do so at any time prior to the commencement of such repair
or restoration. In such event this Lease shall terminate as of the date of such
9.7 Termination -- Advance Payments. Upon termination of this Lease
pursuant to this Paragraph 9, an equitable adjustment shall be made concerning
advance rent and any advance payments made by Lessee to Lessor. Lessor shall, in
addition, return to Lessee so much of Lessee's security deposit as has not
theretofore been applied by Lessor.
9.8 Waiver. Lessor and Lessee waive the provisions of any statutes which
relate to termination of lease when leased property is destroyed and agree that
such event shall be governed by the terms of this Lease.
10. Real Property Taxes.
10.1 Payment of Taxes. Lessee shall pay the real property tax
as defined in paragraph 10.2, applicable to the Premises during the term of this
Lease. All such payments shall be made at least ten (10) days prior to the
delinquency date of such payment. Lessee shall promptly furnish Lessor with
satisfactory evidence that such taxes have been paid. If any such taxes paid by
Lessee shall cover any period of time prior to or after the expiration of the
term hereof, Lessee's share of such taxes shall be equitably prorated to cover
only the period of time within the tax fiscal year during which this Lease shall
be in effect and Lessor shall reimburse Lessee to the extent required. If Lessee
shall fail to pay any such taxes, Lessor shall have the right to pay the same,
in which case Lessee shall repay such amount to Lessor with Lessee's next rent
installment together with interest at the maximum rate then allowable by law.

property tax" shall include any form of real estate tax or assessment, general,
special, ordinary or extraordinary and any license fee, commercial rental tax,
improvement bond or bonds, levy or tax (other than inheritance, personal income
or estate taxes) imposed on the Premises by any authority having the direct or
indirect power to tax, including any city, state or federal government, or any
school, agricultural, sanitary, fire, street, drainage or other improvement
district thereof, as against any legal or equitable interest of Lessor in the
Premises or in the real property of which the Premises are a part, as against
Lessor's right to rent or other income therefrom, and as against Lessor's
business of leasing the Premises. The term "real property tax" shall also
include any tax, fee, levy, assessment or charge (i) in substitution of,
partially or totally, any tax, fee, levy, assessment or charge hereinabove
included within the definition of "real property tax," or (ii) the nature of
which was hereinbefore included within the definition of "real property tax," or
(iii) which is imposed for a service or right not charged prior to June 1, 1978,
or, if previously charged, has been increased since June 1, 1978, or (iv) which
is imposed as a result of a transfer, either partial or total, of Lessor's
interest in the Premises or which is added to a tax or charge hereinbefore
included within the definition of real property tax by reason of such transfer,
or (v) which is imposed by reason of this transaction, any modifications or
changes hereto, or any transfers hereof.
10.3 Joint Assessment. If the Premises are not separately assessed,
Lessee's liability shall be an equitable proportion of the real property taxes
for all of the land and improvements included within the tax parcel assessed,
such proportion to be determined by Lessor from the respective valuations
assigned in the assessor's work sheets or such other information as may be
reasonably available. Lessor's reasonable determination thereof, in good faith,
shall be conclusive.
10.4 Personal Property Taxes.
(a) Lessee shall pay prior to delinquency all taxes assessed against and
levied upon trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal
property of Lessee contained in the Premises or elsewhere. When possible, Lessee
shall cause said trade fixtures, furnishings, equipment and all other personal
property to be assessed and billed separately from the real property of Lessor.
(b) If any of Lessee's said personal property shall be assessed with
Lessor's real property, Lessee shall pay Lessor the taxes attributable to Lessee
within 10 days after receipt of a written statement setting forth the taxes
applicable to Lessee's property.
11. Utilities. Lessee shall pay for all water, gas, heat, light, power,
telephone and other utilities and services supplied to the Premises, together
with any taxes thereon. If any such services are not separately metered to
Lessee, Lessee shall pay a reasonable proportion to be determined by Lessor of
all charges jointly metered with other Premises.
12. Assignment and Subletting.
12.1 Lessor's Consent Required. Lessee shall not voluntarily
or by operation of law assign, transfer, mortgage, sublet, or otherwise transfer
or encumber all or any part of Lessee's interest in this Lease or in the
Premises, without Lessor's prior written consent, which Lessor shall not
unreasonably withhold. Lessor shall respond to Lessee's request for consent
hereunder in a timely manner and any attempted assignment, transfer, mortgage,
encumbrance or subletting without such consent shall be void, and shall
constitute a breach of this Lease.
12.2 Lessee Affiliate. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 12.1
hereof, Lessee may assign or sublet the Premises, or any portion thereof,
without Lessor's consent, to any corporation which controls, is controlled by or
is under common control with Lessee, or to any corporation resulting from the
merger or consolidation with Lessee, or to any person or entity which acquires
all the assets of Lessee as a going concern of the business that is being
conducted on the Premises, provided that said assignee assumes, in full, the
obligations of Lessee under this Lease. Any such assignment shall not, in any
way, affect or limit the liability of Lessee under the terms of this Lease even
if after such assignment or subletting the terms of this Lease are materially
changed or altered without the consent of Lessee, the consent of whom shall not
12.3 No Release of Lessee. Regardless of Lessor's consent, no subletting or
assignment shall release Lessee of Lessee's obligation or alter the primary
liability of Lessee to pay the rent and to perform all other obligations to be
performed by Lessee hereunder. The acceptance of rent by Lessor from any other
person shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Lessor of any provision hereof.
Consent to one assignment or subletting shall not be deemed consent to any
subsequent assignment or subletting. In the event of default by any assignee of
Lessee or any successor of Lessee, in the performance of any of the terms
hereof, Lessor may proceed directly against Lessee without the necessity of
exhausting remedies against said assignee. Lessor may consent to subsequent
assignments or subletting of this Lease or amendments or modifications to this
Lease with assignees of Lessee, without notifying Lessee, or any successor of
Lessee, and without obtaining its or their consent thereto and such action shall
not relieve Lessee of liability under this Lease.
12.4 Attorney's Fees. In the event Lessee shall assign or sublet the
Premises or request the consent of Lessor to any assignment or subletting or if
Lessee shall request the consent of Lessor for any act Lessee proposes to do
then Lessee shall pay Lessor's reasonable attorneys fees incurred in connection
therewith, such attorneys fees not to exceed $350.00 for each such request.
13. Defaults; Remedies.
13.1 Defaults. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events
shall constitute a material default and breach of this Lease by Lessee:
(a) The vacating or abandonment of the Premises by Lessee.
(b) The failure by Lessee to make any payment of rent or any other payment
required to be made by Lessee hereunder, as and when due, where such failure
shall continue for a period of three days after written notice thereof from
Lessor to Lessee. In the event that Lessor serves Lessee with a Notice to Pay
Rent or Quit pursuant to applicable Unlawful Detainer statutes such Notice to
Pay Rent or Quit shall also constitute the notice required by this subparagraph.
(c) The failure by Lessee to observe or perform any of the covenants,
conditions or provisions of this Lease to be observed or performed by Lessee,
other than described in paragraph (b) above, where such failure shall continue
for a period of 30 days after written notice hereof from Lessor to Lessee;
provided, however, that if the nature of Lessee's default is such that more than
30 days are reasonably required for its cure, then Lessee shall not be deemed to
be in default if Lessee commenced such cure within said 30-day period and
thereafter diligently prosecutes
such cure to completion.
(d) (i) The making by Lessee of any general arrangement or assignment for
the benefit of creditors; (ii) Lessee becomes a "debtor" as defined in 11 U.S.C.
(S)101 or any successor statute thereto (unless, in the case of a petition filed
against Lessee, the same is dismissed within 60 days); (iii) the appointment of
a trustee or receiver to take possession of substantially all of Lessee's
asset's located at the Premises or of Lessee's interest in this Lease, where
possession is not restored to Lessee within 30 days; or (iv) the attachment,
execution or other judicial seizure of substantially all of Lessee's assets
located at the Premises or of Lessee's interest in this Lease, where such
seizure is not discharged within 30 days. Provided, however, in the event that
any provision of this paragraph 13.1(d) is contrary to any applicable law, such
provision shall be of no force or effect.
(e) The discovery by Lessor that any financial statement given to Lessor by
lessee, any assignee of Lessee, any subtenant of Lessee, any successor in
interest of Lessee or any guarantor of Lessee's obligation hereunder, and any of
them, was materially false.
13.2 Remedies. In the event of any such material default or breach by
Lessee, Lessor may at any time thereafter, with or without notice or demand and
without limiting Lessor in the exercise of any right or remedy which Lessor may
have by reason of such default or breach:
(a) Terminate Lessee's right to possession of the Premises by any lawful
means, in which case this Lease shall terminate and Lessee shall immediately
surrender possession of the Premises to Lessor. In such event Lessor shall be
entitled to recover from Lessee all damages incurred by Lessor by reason of
Lessee's default including, but not limited to, the cost of recovering
possession of the Premises; expenses of reletting, including time of award by
the court having jurisdiction thereof of the amount by which the unpaid rent for
the balance of the term after the time of such award exceeds the amount of such
rental loss for the same period that Lessee proves could be reasonably avoided;
that portion of the leasing commission paid by Lessor pursuant to Paragraph 15
applicable to the unexpired term of this Lease.
(b) Maintain Lessee's right to possession in which case this Lease shall
continue in effect whether or not Lessee shall have abandoned the Premises. In
such event Lessor shall be entitled to enforce all of Lessor's rights and
remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover the rent as it becomes
(c) Pursue any other remedy now or hereafter available to Lessor under the
laws or judicial decisions of the state wherein the Premises are located. Unpaid
installments of rent and other unpaid monetary obligations of Lessee under the
terms of this Lease shall bear interest from the date due at the maximum rate
then allowable by law.
13.3 Default by Lessor. Lessor shall not be in default unless Lessor fails
to perform obligations required of Lessor within a reasonable time, but in no
event later than thirty (30) days after written notice by Lessee to Lessor and
to the holder of any first mortgage or deed of trust covering the Premises whose
name and address shall have theretofore been furnished to Lessee in writing,
specifying wherein Lessor has failed to perform such obligation; provided,
however, that if the nature of Lessor's obligation is such that more than thirty
(30) days are required for performance then Lessor shall not be in default if
Lessor commences performance within such 30-day period and thereafter diligently
prosecutes the same to completion.
13.4 Late Charges. Lessee hereby acknowledges that late payment by Lessee
to Lessor of rent and other sums due hereunder will cause Lessor to incur costs
not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount of which will be extremely
difficult to ascertain. Such costs include, but are not limited to, processing
and accounting charges, and late charges which may be imposed on Lessor by the
terms of any mortgage or trust deed covering the
Premises. Accordingly, if any installment of rent or any other sum due from
Lessee shall not be received by Lessor or Lessor's designee within ten
(10) days after such amount shall be due, then, without any requirement for
notice to Lessee, Lessee shall pay to Lessor a late charge equal to 6% of such
overdue amount. The parties hereby agree that such late charge represents a fair
and reasonable estimate of the costs Lessor will incur by reason of late payment
by Lessee. Acceptance of such late charge by Lessor shall in no event constitute
a waiver of Lessee's default with respect to such overdue amount, nor prevent
Lessor from exercising any of the other rights and remedies granted hereunder.
In the event that a late charge is payable hereunder, whether or not collected,
for three (3) consecutive installments of rent, then rent shall automatically
become due and payable quarterly in advance, rather than monthly,
notwithstanding paragraph 4 or any other provision of this Lease to the
13.5 Impounds. In the event that a late charge is payable hereunder,
whether or not collected, for three (3) installments of rent or any other
monetary obligation of Lessee under the terms of this Lease, Lessee shall pay to
Lessor, if Lessor shall so request, in addition to any other payments required
under this Lease, a monthly advance installment, payable at the same time as the
monthly rent, as estimated by Lessor, for real property tax and insurance
expenses on the Premises which are payable by Lessee under the terms of this
Lease. Such fund shall be established to insure payment when due, before
delinquency, of any or all such real property taxes and insurance premiums. If
the amounts paid to Lessor by Lessee under the provisions of this paragraph are
insufficient to discharge the obligation of Lessee to pay such real property
taxes and insurance premiums as the same become due, Lessee shall pay to Lessor,
upon Lessor's demand, such additional sums necessary to pay such obligations.
All moneys paid to Lessor under this paragraph may be intermingled with other
moneys of Lessor and shall not bear interest. In an event of a default in the
obligations of Lessee to perform under this Lease, then any balance remaining
from funds paid to Lessor under the provisions of this paragraph may, at the
option of Lessor, be applied to the payment of any monetary default of Lessee in
lieu of being applied to the payment of real property tax and insurance
14. Condemnation. If the Premises or any portion thereof are taken under
the power of eminent domain, or sold under the threat of the exercise of said
power (all of which are herein called "condemnation"), this Lease shall
terminate as to the part so taken as of the date the condemning authority takes
title or possession, whichever first occurs. If more than 10% of the floor area
of the building on the Premises, or more than 25% of the land area of the
Premises which is not occupied by any building, is taken by condemnation, Lessee
may, at Lessee's option, to be exercised in writing only within ten (10) days
after Lessor shall have given Lessee written notice of such taking (or in the
absence of such notice, within ten (10) days after the condemnating authority
shall have taken possession) terminate this Lease as of the date the condemning
authority takes such possession. If Lessee does not terminate this Lease in
accordance with the foregoing, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect
as to the portion of the Premises remaining, except that the rent shall be
reduced in the proportion that the floor area of the building taken bears to the
total floor area of the building situated on the Premises. No reduction of rent
shall occur if the only area taken is that which does not have a building
located thereon. Any award for the taking of all or any part of the Premises
under the power of eminent domain or any payment made under threat of the
exercise of such power shall be the property of Lessor, whether such award shall
be made as compensation for diminution in value of the leasehold or for the
taking of the fee, or as severance damages; provided, however, that Lessee shall
be entitled to any award for loss of or damage to Lessee's trade fixtures and
removable personal property. In the event that this Lease is not terminated
by reason of such condemnation, Lessor shall to the extent of severance damages
received by Lessor in connection with such condemnation, repair any damage to
the Premises caused by such condemnation except to the extent that Lessee has
been reimbursed therefor by the condemning authority. Lessee shall pay any
amount in excess of such severance damages required to complete such repair.
15. Broker's Fee.
(a) Upon execution of this Lease by both parties, Lessor shall pay to Lee
and Associates Commercial Brokerage Company (John Sullivan) Licensed real estate
broker(s), a fee as set forth in a separate agreement between Lessor and said
broker(s), or in the event there is no separate agreement between Lessor and
said broker(s), the sum as agreed, for brokerage services rendered by said
broker(s) to Lessor in this transaction.
(b) Lessor further agrees that if Lessee exercises any Option as defined in
paragraph 39.1 of this Lease, which is granted to Lessee under this Lease, or
any subsequently granted option which is substantially similar to an option
granted to Lessee under this Lease or if Lessee acquires any rights to the
Premises or other premises described in this Lease which are substantially
similar to what Lessee would have acquired had an Option herein granted to
Lessee been exercised, or if Lessee remains in possession of the Premises after
the expiration of the term of this Lease after having failed to exercise an
Option, or if said broker(s) are the procuring cause of any other lease or sale
entered into between the parties pertaining to the Premises and/or any adjacent
property in which Lessor has an interest, then as to any of said transactions,
Lessor shall pay said broker(s) a fee in accordance with the schedule of said
broker(s) in effect at the time of execution of this Lease.
(c) Lessor agrees to pay said fee not only on behalf of Lessor but also on
behalf of any person, corporation, association, or other entity having an
ownership interest in said real property or any part thereof, when such fee is
due hereunder. Any transferee of Lessor's interest in this Lease, whether such
transfer is by agreement or by operation of law, shall be deemed to have assumed
Lessor's obligation under this Paragraph 15. Said broker shall be a third party
beneficiary of the provisions of this Paragraph 15.
16. Estoppel Certificate.
(a) Lessee shall at any time upon not less than ten (10) days prior written
notice from Lessor execute, acknowledge and deliver to Lessor a statement in
writing (i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and
effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying
that this Lease, so modified, is in full force and effect) and the date to which
the rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, and (ii) acknowledging
that there are not, to Lessee's knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of
Lessor hereunder, or specifying such defaults if any are claimed. Any such
statement may be conclusively relied upon by any prospective purchaser or
encumbrancer of the Premises.
(b) At Lessor's option, Lessee's failure to deliver such statement within
such time shall be a material breach of this lease or shall be conclusive upon
Lessee (i) that this Lease is in full force and effect, without modification
except as may be represented by Lessor, (ii) that there are no uncured defaults
in Lessor's performance, and (iii) that not more than one month's rent has been
paid in advance or such failure may be considered by Lessor as a default by
Lessee under this Lease.
(c) If Lessor desires to finance, refinance, or sell the Premises, or any
part thereof, Lessee hereby agrees to deliver to any lender or purchaser
designated by Lessor such financial statements of Lessee as may be reasonably
required by such lender or purchaser. Such statements shall include the past
three years' financial statements of Lessee. All such financial statements
shall be received by Lessor and such lender or purchaser in confidence and shall
be used only for the purposes herein set forth.
17. Lessor's Liability. The term "Lessor" as used herein shall mean only the
owner or owners at the time in question of the fee title or a lessee interest in
a ground lease of the Premises, and except as expressly provided in Paragraph
15, in the event of any transfer of such title or interest, Lessor herein named
(and in case of any subsequent transfers then the grantor) shall be relieved
from and after the date of such transfer of all liability as respects Lessor's
obligations thereafter to be performed, provided that any funds in the hands of
Lessor or the then grantor at the time of such transfer, in which Lessee has an
interest, shall be delivered to the grantee. The obligations contained in this
Lease to be performed by Lessor shall, subject as aforesaid, be binding on
Lessor's successors and assigns, only during their respective periods of
18. Severability. The invalidity of any provision of this Lease as determined
by a court of competent jurisdiction, shall in no way affect the validity of any
other provision hereof.
19. Interest on Past-due Obligations. Except as expressly herein provided, any
amount due to Lessor not paid when due shall bear interest at the maximum rate
then allowable by law from the date due. Payment of such interest shall not
excuse or cure any default by Lessee under this Lease, provided, however, that
interest shall not be payable on late charges incurred by Lessee nor on any
amounts upon which late charges are paid by Lessee.
20. Time of Essence. Time is of the essence.
21. Additional Rent. Any monetary obligations of Lessee to Lessor under the
terms of this Lease shall be deemed to be rent.
22. Incorporation of Prior Agreements; Amendments. This Lease contains all
agreements of the parties with respect to any matter mentioned herein. No prior
agreement or understanding pertaining to any such matter shall be effective.
This Lease may be modified in writing only, signed by the parties in interest at
the time of the modification. Except as otherwise stated in this Lease, Lessee
hereby acknowledges that neither the real estate broker listed in Paragraph 15
hereof or any cooperating broker on this transaction nor the Lessor or any
employees or agents of any of said persons has made any oral or written
warranties or representations to Lessee relative to the condition or use by
Lessee of said Premises and Lessee acknowledges that Lessee assumes all
responsibility regarding the Occupational Safety Health Act, the legal use and
adaptability of the Premises and the compliance thereof with all applicable laws
and regulations in effect during the term of this Lease except as otherwise
specifically stated in this Lease.
23. Notices. Any notice required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be in
writing and may be given by personal delivery or by certified mail, and if given
personally or by mail, shall be deemed sufficiently given if addressed to Lessee
or to Lessor at the address noted below the signature of the respective parties,
as the case may be. Either party may by notice to the other specify a different
address for notice purposes except that upon Lessee's taking possession of the
Premises, the Premises shall constitute Lessee's address for notice purposes. A
copy of all notices required or permitted to be given to Lessor hereunder shall
be concurrently transmitted to such party or parties at such addresses as Lessor
may from time to time hereafter designate by notice to Lessee.
24. Waivers. No waiver by Lessor or any provison hereof shall be deemed a
waiver of any other provision hereof or of any
subsequent breach by Lessee of the same or any other provision. Lessor's consent
to, or approval of, any act shall not be deemed to render unnecessary the
obtaining of Lessor's consent to or approval of any subsequent act by Lessee.
The acceptance of rent hereunder by Lessor shall not be a waiver of any
preceding breach by Lessee of any provision hereof, other than the failure of
Lessee to pay the particular rent so accepted, regardless of Lessor's knowledge
of such preceding breach at the time of acceptance of such rent.
25. Recording. Either Lessor or Lessee shall, upon request of the other,
execute, acknowledge and deliver to the other a "short form" memorandum of this
Lease for recording purposes.
26. Holding Over. If Lessee, with Lessor's consent, remains in possession of
the Premises or any pad thereof after the expiration of the term hereof, such
occupancy shall be a tenancy from month to month upon all the provisions of this
Lease pertaining to the obligations of Lessee, but all options and rights of
first refusal, if any, granted under the terms of this Lease shall be deemed
terminated and be of no further effect during said month to month tenancy.
27. Cumulative Remedies. No remedy or election hereunder shall be deemed
exclusive but shall, wherever possible, be cumulative with all other remedies at
law or in equity.
28. Covenants and Conditions. Each provision of this Lease performable by
Lessee shall be deemed both a covenant and a condition.
29. Binding Effect; Choice of Law. Subject to any provisions hereof restricting
assignment or subletting by Lessee and subject to the provisions of Paragraph
17, this Lease shall bind the parties, their personal representatives,
successors and assigns. This Lease shall be governed by the laws of the State
wherein the Premises are located.
(a) This Lease, at Lessor's option, shall be subordinate to any ground
lease, mortgage, deed of trust, or any other hypothecation or security now or
hereafter placed upon the real property of which the Premises are a part and to
any and all advances made on the security thereof and to all renewals,
modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof.
Notwithstanding such subordination, Lessee's right to quiet possession of the
Premises shall not be disturbed if Lessee is not in default and so long as
Lessee shall pay the rent and observe and perform all of the provisions of this
Lease, unless this Lease is otherwise terminated pursuant to its terms. If any
mortgage, trustee or ground lessor shall elect to have this Lease prior to the
lien of its mortgage, deed of trust or ground lease, and shall give written
notice thereof to Lessee, this Lease shall be deemed prior to such mortgage,
deed of trust, or ground lease, whether this Lease is dated prior or subsequent
to the date of said mortgage, deed of trust or ground lease or the date of
(b) Lessee agrees to execute any documents required to effectuate an
attornment, a subordination or to make the Lease prior to the lien of any
mortgage, deed of trust or ground lease, as the case may be. Lessee's failure to
execute such documents within 10 days after written demand shall constitute a
material default by Lessee hereunder, or, at Lessor's option, Lessor shall
execute such documents on behalf of Lessee as Lessee's attorney-in-fact. Lessee
does hereby make, constitute and irrevocably appoint Lessor as Lessee's
attorney-in-fact and in Lessee's name, place and stead, to execute such
documents in accordance with this paragraph 30(b).
31. Attorney's Fees. If either party or the broker named herein brings an
action to enforce the terms hereof or declare rights hereunder, the prevailing
party in any such action, on trial or appeal, shall be entitled to his
reasonable attorney's fees to be paid by the losing party as fixed by the court.
The provisions of this paragraph shall inure to the benefit of the broker named
herein who seeks to enforce a right hereunder.
32. Lessor's Access. Lessor and Lessor's agents shall have the right to enter
the Premises at reasonable times for the purpose of inspecting the same, showing
the same to prospective purchasers, lenders, or lessees, and making such
alterations, repairs, improvements or additions to the Premises or to the
building of which they are a part as Lessor may deem necessary or desirable.
Lessor may at any time place on or about the Premises any ordinary "For Sale"
signs and Lessor may at any time during the last 120 days of the term hereof
place on or about the Premises any ordinary "For Lease" signs, all without
rebate of rent or liability to Lessee.
33. Auctions. Lessee shall not conduct, nor permit to be conducted, either
voluntarily or involuntarily, any auction upon the Premises without first having
obtained Lessor's prior written consent. Notwithstanding anything to the
contrary in this Lease, Lessor shall not be obligated to exercise any standard
of reasonableness in determining whether to grant such consent.
34. Signs. Lessee shall not place any sign upon the Premises without Lessor's
prior written consent except that Lessee shall have the right, without the prior
permission of Lessor, to place ordinary and usual for rent or sublet signs
35. Merger. The voluntary or other surrender of this Lease by Lessee, or a
mutual cancellation thereof, or a termination by Lessor, shall not work a
merger, and shall, at the option of Lessor, terminate all or any existing
subtenancies or may, at the option of Lessor, operate as an assignment to Lessor
of any or all of such subtenancies.
36. Consents. Except for paragraph 33 hereof, wherever in this Lease the
consent of one party is required to an act of the other party such consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld.
37. Guarantor. In the event that there is a guarantor of this Lease, said
guarantor shall have the same obligations as Lessee under this Lease.
38. Quiet Possession. Upon Lessee paying the rent for the Premises and
observing and performing all of the covenants, conditions and provisions on
Lessee's part to be observed and performed hereunder, Lessee shall have quiet
possession of the Premises for the entire term hereof subject to all of the
provisions of this Lease. The individuals executing this Lease on behalf of
Lessor represent and warrant to Lessee that they are fully authorized and
legally capable of executing this Lease on behalf of Lessor and that such
execution is binding upon all parties holding an ownership interest in the
39.1 Definition. As used in this paragraph the word "Options" has the
following meaning: (1) the right or option to extend the term of this Lease or
to renew this Lease or to extend or renew any lease that Lessee has on other
property of Lessor; (2) the option or right of first refusal to lease the
Premises or the right of first offer to lease the Premises or the right of first
refusal to lease other property of Lessor or the right of first offer to lease
other property of Lessor; (3) the right or option to purchase the Premises, or
the right of first refusal to purchase the Premises, or the right of first offer
to purchase the
Premises or the right or option to purchase other property of Lessor, or the
right of first refusal to purchase other property of Lessor or the right of
first offer to purchase other property of Lessor.
39.2 Options Personal. Each Option granted to Lessee in this Lease are
personal to Lessee and may not be exercised or be assigned, voluntarily or
involuntarily, by or to any person or entity other than Lessee, provided,
however, the Option may be exercised by or assigned to any Lessee Affiliate as
defined in paragraph 12.2 of this Lease. The Options herein granted to Lessee
are not assignable separate and apart from this Lease.
39.3 Multiple Options. In the event that Lessee has any multiple options to
extend or renew this Lease a later option cannot be exercised unless the prior
option to extend or renew his Lease has been so exercised.
39.4 Effect of Default on Options.
(a) Lessee shall have no right to exercise an Option, notwithstanding any
provision in the grant of Option to the contrary, (i) during the time commencing
from the date Lessor gives to Lessee a notice of default pursuant to paragraph
13.1(b) or 13.1(c) and continuing until the default alleged in said notice of
default is cured or (ii) during the period of time commencing on the day after a
monetary obligation to Lessor is due from Lessee and unpaid (without any
necessity for notice thereof to Lessee) continuing until the obligation is paid,
or (iii) at any time after an event of default described in paragraphs 13.1(a),
13.1(d), or 13.1(e) (without any necessity of Lessor to give notice of such
default to Lessee), or (iv) in the event that Lessor has given to Lessee three
or more notices of default under paragraph 13.1(b), where a late charge has
become payable under paragraph 13.4 for each of such defaults, or paragraph
13.1(c), whether or not the defaults are cured, during the 12 month period prior
to the time that Lessee intends to exercise the subject Option.
(b) The period of time within which an Option may be exercised shall not be
extended or enlarged by reason of Lessee's inability to exercise an Option
because of the provisions of paragraph 39.4(a).
(c) All rights of Lessee under the provisions of an Option shall terminate
and be of no further force or effect, notwithstanding Lessee's due and timely
exercise of the Option, if, after such exercise and during the term of this
Lease, (i) Lessee fails to pay to Lessor a monetary obligation of Lessee for a
period of 30 days after such obligation becomes due (without any necessity of
Lessor to give notice thereof to Lessee), or (ii) Lessee fails to commence to
cure a default specified in paragraph 13.1(c) within 30 days after the date that
Lessor gives notice to Lessee of such default and/or Lessee fails thereafter to
diligently prosecute said cure to completion, or (iii) Lessee commits a default
described in paragraph 13.1(a), 13.1(d) or 13.1(e) (without any necessity of
Lessor to give notice of such default to Lessee), or (iv) Lessor gives to Lessee
three or more notices of default under paragraph 13.1(b), where a late charge
becomes payable under paragraph 13.4 for each such default, or paragraph
13.1(c), whether or not the defaults are cured.
40. Multiple Tenant building. In the event that the Premises are part of a
larger building or group of buildings then Lessee agrees that it will abide by,
keep and observe all reasonable rules and regulations which Lessor may make from
time to time for the management, safety, care and cleanliness of the building
and grounds, the parking of vehicles and the preservation of good order therein
as well as for the convenience of other occupants and tenants of the building.
The violations of any such rules and regulations shall be deemed a material
breach of this Lease by Lessee..

Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, California (1967=100), "All Items", herein referred
to as "C.P.I."
(b) The monthly rent payable in accordance with paragraph (a) of the Addendum
shall be calculated as follows: the rent payable for the first month of the term
of this Lease, as set forth in paragraph 4 of the attached Lease, shall be
multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be C.P.I. of the month
immediately preceding the effective date of the subject rent escalation and the
denominator of which shall be the C.P.I. for the first month of the Lease term.

month immediately preceding the date for rent adjustment. In no event shall this
increase amount to less than a 7-1/2 percent increase of the base amount, every
