Landlord reserves the right from time to time to use any of the Common Areas, or roof, risers and conduits of the Building for telecommunications and/or any other purposes (so long as such does not materially increase Tenants obligations under the Lease, materially decrease Tenants rights under the Lease, or materially impair Tenants ability to utilize the Premises for a first class cGMP antibody manufacturing facility), and to do any of the following: (1) make any changes, additions, improvements, repairs and/or replacements in or to the Project or any portion or elements thereof, including, without limitation, (x) changes in the location, size, shape and number of driveways, entrances, loading and unloading areas, ingress, egress, direction of traffic, landscaped areas, walkways, public and private streets, plazas, courtyards, transportation facilitation areas and common areas, and (y) expanding or decreasing the size of the Project and any Common Areas and other elements thereof, including adding, deleting and/or excluding buildings thereon and therefrom; (2) close temporarily any of the Common Areas while engaged in making repairs, improvements or alterations to the Project; (3) retain and/or form a common area association or associations under covenants, conditions and restrictions to own, manage, operate, maintain, repair and/or replace all or any portion of the landscaping, driveways, walkways, public and private streets, plazas, courtyards, transportation facilitation areas and/or other Common Areas located outside of the Building and, subject to Section 5 below, include the Common Area assessments, fees and taxes charged by the association(s) and the cost of maintaining, managing, administering and operating the association(s), in Operating Expenses or Tax Expenses; and (4) perform such other acts and
make such other changes with respect to the Project as Landlord may, in the exercise of good faith business judgment, deem to be appropriate. In connection with the exercise of any rights set forth in this Section 2 by Landlord, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any material adverse interference with Tenants business at the Premises, and any unreasonable interference with Tenants access to the Premises, as a result thereof. Prior to knowingly causing any material interference with Tenants business at the Premises or Tenants access thereto, Landlord shall meet and confer with Tenant, and each shall promptly and in good faith, develop a mutually agreed upon plan to ameliorate any such interference, Tenants agreement to such plan not to be unreasonably withheld.
3. Term; Condition and Acceptance of Premises.
3.1 Initial Term and Acceptance of Premises.
3.1.1 Initial Term. Except as hereinafter provided, and unless sooner terminated or extended pursuant to the provisions of this Lease, the Term of this Lease shall commence on the Commencement Date and end on the Expiration Date.
3.1.2 Condition of Premises. Except as provided in this Lease (including this Section 3.1.2) and except as described in Exhibit C attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference (the Work Letter), Tenant agrees to accept the Premises in their as-is condition, without any representations or warranties by Landlord, and with no obligation of Landlord to make any alterations or improvements to the Premises or to provide any tenant improvement allowance. Tenant also acknowledges that neither Landlord nor any agent of Landlord has made any representation or warranty with respect to the suitability of the Premises or the Building for the conduct of Tenants business. Promptly following determination of the Commencement Date, Landlord and Tenant shall execute a Confirmation of Term in the form as set forth in Exhibit D attached to this Lease. Landlord represents and warrants that Landlord is the fee owner of the Building and has the full right and authority to enter into this Lease without the necessary consent of any other person or entity that has not already been obtained; that the terms of this Lease do not violate any easements, restrictions or other encumbrances recorded against the Building or Project, in any material manner which would materially impair Tenants ability to utilize the Premises for a first class cGMP antibody manufacturing facility; and that Landlord has not received written notice of any action, suit or proceeding pending, or threatened against Landlord or affecting Landlords ownership of the Building or Project or enforceability of this Lease.
3.1.3 Early Entry. Landlord shall permit Tenant to access and enter the Premises on the date that the Lease is mutually executed and delivered (the Early Entry Date), solely for purposes of Tenants planning for and performing the build out and installation of the Improvements and installing Tenants furniture, fixtures and equipment in the Premises. For the avoidance of doubt, Tenants access and use of the Premises pursuant to this Section 3.1.3 (and solely for the purposes permitted in this Section 3.1.3) shall not be deemed to be Tenants commencement of operations within all or any part of the Premises. In no event may Tenant conduct its business or operations from the Premises until after the Commencement Date. Such limited purpose entry and use of the Premises by Tenant shall be at Tenants sole risk and shall also be subject to all of the provisions of this Lease including, but not limited to, the requirement to obtain the insurance required pursuant to this Lease and to deliver insurance certificates as required herein. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, Tenant shall not be required to pay Rent prior to the Commencement Date.
3.2 Option to Extend.
3.2.1 Exercise of Option to Extend Term. If (i) Tenant has not been in default of this Lease (beyond the expiration of applicable notice and cure periods) more than two (2) times during the Lease Term and (ii) Tenant has not received a written notice of a monetary or other material default during the period beginning on the date that Tenant exercises its Extension Option and continuing until the day which precedes the commencement of the Extended Term, Tenant shall have two (2) options (as to each, an Extension Option) to extend the Lease Term for an additional period of ten (10) years each (as to each, an Extended Term). To exercise an Extension Option with respect to an Extended Term, Tenant shall give notice to Landlord not more than fifteen (15) months and not less than twelve (12) months prior to the expiration of the initial Lease Term or the then expiring Extended Term, as applicable, (Election Notice).
3.2.2 Fair Market Rent. If Tenant properly and timely exercises an Extension Option pursuant to Section 3.2.1 above, the Extended Term shall be upon all of the same terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease; provided, however, that the Base Rent applicable to the Premises for such Extended Term shall be one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Rent for space comparable to the Premises as of the commencement of such Extended Term. Fair Market Rent shall mean the annual rental being charged for lab/office space in buildings comparable to the Building and located in Emeryville, California taking into account location, condition, and improvements of the comparable buildings as compared to the location, condition and lab/office improvements to the Premises as of the Commencement Date. If applicable, the Annex shall be disregarded for purposes of calculating Fair Market Rent.
3.2.3 Determination of Rent. Within forty-five (45) days after the date of the Election Notice (the Outside Date) Landlord and Tenant shall negotiate in good faith, in the manner set forth in this Section 3.2.3, in an attempt to determine Fair Market Rent for an Extended Term. If Tenant timely and properly exercises an Extension Option, within fifteen (15) days of Landlords receipt of the Election Notice, Landlord shall notify Tenant of Landlords determination of Fair Market Rent for the applicable Term. If Tenant in good faith objects in writing to Landlords determination of Fair Market Rent within thirty (30) days following the date upon which Landlord notifies Tenant of its determination, then Landlord and Tenant shall attempt to agree upon the Fair Market Rent using their best good-faith efforts; provided that if Tenant fails to object to Landlords determination within such thirty (30) day period, then Tenant shall be deemed to have accepted Landlords determination of Fair Market Rent. If Landlord and Tenant fail to reach agreement within thirty (30) days following Tenants objection, then each party shall make a separate determination of Fair Market Rent, and such determinations shall be submitted to arbitration, in accordance with Section 3.2.4, below, no later than ten (10) days following the Outside Date.
3.2.4 Appraisal. If it becomes necessary to determine the Fair Market Rent for the Premises by appraisal, the real estate appraiser(s) indicated in this Section 3.2.4, each of whom shall be licensed real estate brokers (not licensed appraisers) with at least five (5) years experience leasing office space located in the vicinity of the Premises, shall be appointed and shall act in accordance with the following procedures:
If the parties are unable to agree on the Fair Market Rent within the allowed time, either party may demand an appraisal by giving written notice to the other party, which demand to be effective must state the name, address and qualifications of an appraiser selected by the party demanding the appraisal (Notifying Party). Within ten (10) days following the Notifying Partys appraisal demand, the other party (Non-Notifying Party) shall either approve the appraiser selected by the Notifying Party or select a second properly qualified appraiser by giving written notice of the name, address and qualification of said appraiser to the Notifying Party. If the Non-Notifying Party fails to select an appraiser within the ten (10) day period, the appraiser selected by the Notifying Party shall be deemed selected by both parties and no other appraiser shall be selected. If two (2) appraisers are selected, they shall select a third appropriately qualified appraiser within ten (10) days of selection of the second appraiser. If the two (2) appraisers fail to select a third qualified appraiser, the third appraiser shall be appointed by the then presiding judge of the county where the Premises are located upon application by either party.
If two (2) or more of the appraisers agree on the Fair Market Rent for the Premises at the initial meeting, such agreement shall be determinative and binding upon the parties hereto and the agreeing appraisers shall forthwith notify both Landlord and Tenant of the amount set by such agreement. If multiple appraisers are selected and two (2) appraisers are unable to agree on the Fair Market Rent for the Premises, each appraiser shall submit to Landlord and Tenant his or her respective independent appraisal of the Fair Market Rent for the Premises, in simple letter form, within fifteen (15) days following appointment of the final appraiser. The parties shall then determine the Fair Market Rent for the Premises by averaging the appraisals; provided that any high or low appraisal, differing from the middle appraisal by more than ten percent (10%) of the middle appraisal, shall be disregarded in calculating the average.
If only one appraiser is selected, each party shall submit their determination of Fair Market Rent, and that appraiser shall notify the parties in simple letter form of its determination as to whether the parties shall use Landlords or Tenants submitted determination of Fair Market Rent, and shall notify Landlord and Tenant thereof. If multiple appraisers are selected, the appraisers shall meet not later than ten (10) business days following the selection of the last appraiser. If only one (1) appraiser is selected, then each party shall pay one-half (1/2) of the fees and expenses of that appraiser. If three (3) appraisers are selected, each party shall bear the fees and expenses of the appraiser it selects and one-half (1/2) of the fees and expenses of the third appraiser.
3.2.5 Restriction on Assignment. The Extension Option shall be personal to the originally named Tenant (and any Permitted Transferee) and shall terminate upon any assignment of this Lease or any sublease of fifty percent (50%) or more of the Premises (other than in connection with a Permitted Transfer).
3.2.6 Amendment to Lease. Immediately after the Fair Market Rent has been determined, the parties shall enter into an amendment to this Lease setting forth the Base Rent for an Extended Term and the new expiration date of the Term of the Lease. All other terms and conditions of the Lease shall remain in full force and effect and shall apply during an Extended Term, except that: (i) there shall be no further option to extend the Term except to the extent expressly provided in this Section 3.2, (ii) there shall be no rent concessions, and (iii) Landlord shall have no obligation to construct or install improvements in the Premises, pursuant to Exhibit C or otherwise, and there shall be no construction allowance, tenant improvement allowance or similar provisions.
3.3 Tenants Early Termination Option.
3.3.1 Tenant shall have a one-time option (the Termination Option) to terminate this Lease, effective as of the last day of the one hundred twentieth (120th) full calendar month after the date Tenant first commenced payment of Base Rent (and without consideration to any advance rent paid at lease execution) (the Termination Date). The Termination Option is granted subject to the following terms and conditions:
(i) Tenant delivers to Landlord written notice of Tenants election to exercise the Termination Option, which notice is given not later than twelve (12) full calendar months prior to the Termination Date; and
(ii) Tenant is not then in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure periods either on the date that Tenant exercises the Termination Option, or unless waived in writing by Landlord, on the Termination Date; and
(iii) Tenant pays to Landlord concurrently with Tenants exercise of the Termination Option and delivery of the written notice as required above, a cash (or otherwise immediately available funds) lease termination fee (the Fee) equal to the aggregate of (a) any unamortized costs (including interest on such unamortized costs at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum) of the Tenant Improvement Allowance; and (b) six (6) full months of monthly Base Rent, which for purposes of calculating the Fee shall be the amount of the Base Rent payable by Tenant on the day preceding the Termination Date. For purposes of exercising the Termination Option, Tenant may in good faith estimate the Fee required to be paid hereunder, and promptly after such exercise by Tenant, the parties shall true up the amount of the Fee if Tenants estimate is not accurate within fifteen (15) days of delivery of written notice as provided in Section 3.3.1(i).
3.3.2 If Tenant timely and properly exercises the Termination Option, (i) all Rent payable under the Lease shall be paid through and apportioned as of the Termination Date (in addition to payment by Tenant of the Fee); (ii) neither party shall have any rights, estates, liabilities, or obligations under this Lease for the period accruing after the Termination Date, except those which, by the provisions of this Lease, expressly survive the expiration or termination of the Term of the Lease; and (iii) Tenant shall surrender and vacate the Premises and deliver possession thereof to Landlord on or before the Termination Date in the condition required under the Lease (as amended hereby) for surrender of the Premises. It is the parties intention that nothing contained herein shall impair, diminish or otherwise prevent Landlord or Tenant from recovering from the other party such additional sums as may be necessary for payment of Tenants Percentage Share of Escalation Rent and any other sums due and payable under the Lease to the extent such expenses and sums have accrued prior to the Termination Date, including without limitation, any sums required to repair any damage to the Premises and/or restore the Premises to the condition required under the provisions of the Lease.
3.3.3 The Termination Option shall automatically terminate and become null and void upon the earlier to occur of (i) the breach or default by Tenant of any of the terms of this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure periods at any time on or before the Termination Date on two (2) or more occasions; (ii) the termination of Tenants right to possession of the Premises; or (iii) the failure of Tenant to timely or properly exercise the Termination Option as contemplated herein. This Termination Option may only be assigned as part of the Lease, but subject to the provisions of Section 17 of the Lease. Time is of the essence with regard to each of the terms and provisions of this Section 3.3.
4.1 Obligation to Pay Base Rent. Except for the Abated Base Rent, Tenant shall pay Base Rent as set forth in the Basic Lease Information to Landlord, in advance, in equal monthly installments, commencing on or before the Commencement Date, and thereafter on or before the first day of each calendar month during the Term. If the Commencement Date and/or Expiration Date is other than the first day of a calendar month, the installment of Base Rent for the first and/or last fractional month of the Term shall be prorated on the basis of a thirty (30) day month. Tenant shall pay Landlord the first months Base Rent on or before the Commencement Date.
4.2 Manner of Rent Payment. All Rent shall be paid by Tenant without notice, demand, abatement, deduction or offset, in lawful money of the United States of America, payable to Landlord, at Landlords Rent Payment Address as set forth in the Basic Lease Information, or to such other person or at such other place as Landlord may from time to time designate by notice to Tenant.
4.3 Additional Rent. All Rent not characterized as Base Rent or Escalation Rent shall constitute Additional Rent, and if payable to Landlord shall, unless otherwise specified in this Lease, be due and payable fifteen (15) days after Tenants receipt of Landlords invoice therefor.
4.4 Late Payment of Rent; Interest. Tenant acknowledges that late payment by Tenant of any Rent will cause Landlord to incur administrative costs not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount of which are extremely difficult and impracticable to ascertain based on the facts and circumstances pertaining as of the Lease Date. Accordingly, if any Rent is not paid by Tenant within five (5) days of the date when due, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord, with such Rent, a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of such Rent; provided, however, Landlord shall waive the application of such late charge once per 12-month period provided that Tenant pays the delinquent sum within five (5) days after the receipt of written notice that such amount is past due. Any Rent, other than late charges, due Landlord under this Lease, if not paid within five (5) days of when due, shall also bear interest from the date due until paid, at the rate of the ten percent (10%) per annum; provided, however, that if such rate of interest shall exceed the maximum rate allowed by law, the interest rate shall be automatically reduced to the maximum rate of interest permitted by applicable law. The parties acknowledge that such late charge and interest represent a fair and reasonable estimate of the administrative costs and loss of use of funds Landlord will incur by reason of a late Rent payment by Tenant, but Landlords acceptance of such late charge and/or interest shall not constitute a waiver of Tenants default with respect to such Rent or prevent Landlord from exercising any other rights and remedies provided under this Lease, at law or in equity.
5. Calculation and Payments of Escalation Rent. In addition to paying the Base Rent specified in this Lease, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additional rent, Tenants Percentage Share of Escalation Rent. All amounts due under this Section 5 as Escalation Rent shall be payable for the same periods and in the same manner, time and place as the Base Rent. Without limitation on other obligations of Tenant which shall survive the expiration of the Lease Term, the obligations of Tenant to pay the Additional Rent provided for in this Section 5 shall survive the expiration of the Lease Term. During each full or partial calendar year of the Term, Tenant shall pay Escalation Rent to Landlord in accordance with the following procedures:
5.1 Payment of Estimated Escalation Rent. Prior to the Commencement Date and by December of each calendar year thereafter, or as soon thereafter as practicable, Landlord shall give Tenant notice of its estimate of Escalation Rent due for the next ensuing calendar year. On or before the first day of each month from and after the Commencement Date, and during such next ensuing calendar year, as the case may be, Tenant shall pay to Landlord in advance, in addition to Base Rent, one-twelfth (1/12th) of such estimated Escalation Rent. In the event such notice is given after December 31st of any year during the Term, (i) Tenant shall continue to pay Escalation Rent on the basis of the prior calendar years estimate until the month after such notice is given, (ii) subsequent payments by Tenant shall be based on the estimate of Escalation Rent set forth in Landlords notice, and (iii) with the first monthly payment of Escalation Rent based on the estimate set forth in Landlords notice, Tenant shall also pay the difference, if any, between the amount previously paid for such calendar year and the amount which Tenant would have paid through the month in which such notice is given, based on Landlords noticed estimate or, in the alternative, if such amount previously paid by Tenant for such calendar year through the month in which such notice is given exceeds the amount which Tenant would have paid through such month based on Landlords noticed estimate, Landlord shall credit such excess amount against the next monthly payments of Escalation Rent due from Tenant, except that if a credit amount is due Tenant after termination of this Lease, Landlord shall pay to Tenant any excess remaining after Landlord credits such amount against any sums owed by Tenant to Landlord. If at any time Landlord reasonably determines that the Escalation Rent for the current calendar year will vary from Landlords estimate by more than five percent (5%), Landlord may, by notice to Tenant, revise its estimate for such calendar year, and subsequent payments by Tenant for such calendar year shall be based upon such revised estimate.
5.2 Escalation Rent Statement and Adjustment. Within one hundred fifty (150) days after the close of each calendar year, or as soon thereafter as practicable, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a statement of the actual Escalation Rent for such calendar year (the Statement), accompanied by a statement prepared by Landlord showing in reasonable detail the Operating Expenses and the Real Estate Taxes comprising the actual Escalation Rent. If the Statement shows that Tenant owes an amount less than the payments previously made by Tenant for such calendar year, Landlord shall credit the difference first against any sums then owed by Tenant to Landlord and then against the next payment or payments of Rent due Landlord, except that if a credit amount is due Tenant after termination of this Lease, Landlord shall pay to Tenant any excess remaining after Landlord credits such amount against any sums owed by Tenant to Landlord. If the Statement shows that Tenant owes an amount more than the payments previously made by Tenant for such calendar year, Tenant shall pay the difference to Landlord within fifteen (15) days after delivery of the statement.
5.3 Proration for Partial Year. If the Commencement Date is other than the first day of a calendar year or if this Lease terminates other than on the last day of a calendar year (other than due to Tenants default), the amount of Escalation Rent for such fractional calendar year shall be prorated on a daily basis. Upon such termination, Landlord may, at its option, calculate the adjustment in Escalation Rent prior to the time specified in Section 5.2 above. Tenants obligation to pay Escalation Rent, as set forth in Section 5.2, above, shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease.
5.4 Audit. After delivery to Landlord of at least thirty (30) days prior written notice delivered no later than one hundred twenty (120) days after receipt of a Statement, Tenant, at its sole cost and expense through any accountant designated by it, shall have the right to examine and/or audit the books and records evidencing such costs and expenses for the previous one (1) calendar year, during Landlords reasonable business hours but not more frequently than once during any calendar year. Any such accounting firm designated by Tenant may not be compensated on a contingency fee basis. The results of any such audit (and any negotiations between the parties related thereto) shall be maintained strictly confidential by Tenant and its accounting firm and shall not be disclosed, published or otherwise disseminated to any other party other than to Landlord and its authorized agents. Landlord and Tenant each shall use its best efforts to cooperate in such negotiations and to promptly resolve any discrepancies between Landlord and Tenant in the accounting of such costs and expenses. If Tenant fails to timely deliver written notice of Tenants desire to audit a Statement pursuant to this Section 5.4 or Tenant fails to commence and complete such audit within six (6) months after Landlords delivery of the Statement in question, then Tenant shall be deemed to have approved of such Statement and such Statement shall be final and binding upon Tenant. If through such audit it is determined that there is a discrepancy of more than five percent (5%) in the amount of Escalation Rent payments made by Tenant for such calendar year when compared to the actual Escalation Rent for such year, then Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for the reasonable accounting costs and expenses incurred by Tenant in performing such audit, including Tenants outside auditors or accountants (but excluding Tenants in-house personnel).
5.5 Adjustment of Tenants Percentage Interest in the Project. If Landlord constructs any additional Other Buildings within the Project, then effective as of the commencement of such construction, Tenants Percentage Interest in the Project shall be recalculated as equal to the quotient of the Rentable Area of the Building divided by the rentable area of the Project, including the rentable area of such additional Other Building, such rentable area to be determined in accordance with BOMA standards then used by Landlord in its determination of the Rentable Area for all the Other Buildings. In the event Tenants Percentage Share is changed during a calendar year by reason of a change in the Rentable Area of the Premises or a change in the total Rentable Area of the Building, Tenants Percentage Share shall thereafter mean the result obtained by dividing the then Rentable Area of the Premises (excluding the Equipment Area) by the then total Rentable Area of the Building, or Project, as applicable, and multiplying such quotient by one hundred (100). For the purposes of determining Tenants Percentage Share of Escalation Rent, Tenants Percentage Share shall be determined on the basis of the number of days during such calendar year at each such Percentage Share.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord hereby agrees that, during the initial Lease Term, the rentable square footage of the Premises shall only be redetermined upon a physical change to the size of the Premises (other than the addition of an Annex, as defined below) or as the result of a new load factor applicable to tenants of the Project due to new common area amenities.
6. Impositions Payable by Tenant. Tenant shall pay all Impositions prior to delinquency. If billed directly to Tenant, Tenant shall pay such Impositions and concurrently deliver to Landlord evidence of such payments. If any Impositions are billed to Landlord or included in bills to Landlord for Real Estate Taxes or other charges, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord all such amounts within fifteen (15) days after delivery of Landlords invoice therefor. If applicable law prohibits Tenant from reimbursing Landlord for an Imposition, but Landlord may lawfully increase the Base Rent to account for Landlords payment of such Imposition, the Base Rent payable to Landlord shall be increased to net to Landlord the same return without reimbursement of such Imposition as would have been received by Landlord with reimbursement of such Imposition. Tenants obligation to pay Impositions which have accrued and remain unpaid upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
7. Use of Premises.
7.1 Permitted Use; CUP. The Premises shall be used solely for the Permitted Use and for no other use or purpose.
7.2 No Violation of Requirements. Tenant shall not do or permit to be done, or bring or keep or permit to be brought or kept, in or about the Premises, or any other portion of the Building or the Project, anything which (i) is prohibited by, will in any way conflict with, or would invalidate any Requirements; or (ii) would cause a cancellation of any insurance policy carried by Landlord or Tenant, or give rise to any defense by an insurer to any claim under any such policy of insurance, or increase the existing rate of or adversely affect any insurance policy carried by Landlord, or (iii) subject Landlord to any liability or responsibility for injury to any person or property; or (iv) will in any way materially obstruct or interfere with the rights of other tenants or occupants of the Project, or injure or unreasonably annoy them; provided, however, that the operations of tenant that are in compliance with all Requirements and are consistent with the ordinary course business operations of other tenants of the Project, or are consistent with the ordinary course of business operations of first class cGMP antibody manufacturing facilities shall not be deemed to breach clauses (ii), (iii) or (iv) above. If Tenant does or permits anything to be done (other than activities consistent with the ordinary course of business operations of first class cGMP antibody manufacturing facility) which increases the cost of any of Landlords insurance, or which results in the need, in Landlords reasonable judgment, for additional insurance by Landlord or Tenant with respect to any portion of the Premises, the Building or the Project, then Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, upon demand, for any such additional costs or the costs of such additional insurance, and/or procure such additional insurance at Tenants sole cost and expense. Exercise by Landlord of such right to require reimbursement of additional costs (including the costs of procuring of additional insurance) shall not limit or preclude Landlord from prohibiting Tenants impermissible use of the Premises or from invoking any other right or remedy available to Landlord under this Lease.
7.3 Compliance with Legal, Insurance and Life Safety Requirements. Landlord represents that, as of the date of this Lease, it has not received written notice that the Common Areas of the Project and/or Base Building are in violation of any Requirements. Tenant, at its cost and expense, shall promptly comply with all Requirements applicable to Tenants use or occupancy of, or business conducted in, the Building, and shall maintain the Building and all portions thereof in compliance with all applicable Requirements. The judgment of any court of competent jurisdiction, or the admission of Tenant or Landlord in any action or proceeding involving such party, whether or not the other party is party thereto, that such party is in non-compliance with any Requirement shall be conclusive of that fact. In addition, subject to the provisions of Article 10 below, Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, make all modifications to any portion of the Project outside the Building (including whether structural or capital in nature), which are necessitated, in whole or in part, by (i) Tenants use or occupancy of, or business conducted in, the Building, for purposes other than general ordinary office use, (ii) any Tenant Improvements or Alterations, or (iii) any default by Tenant. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, modifications to any portion of the Project outside the Building, or to the Base Building, that are required by Requirements in connection with Tenants obtaining any building permit for the Improvements, including, without limitation, modifications required to make the then-current path of travel to and from the Premises to comply with the ADA (collectively, Base Modifications) shall be made at Landlords sole cost and expense, and not included as an Operating Expense; provided, however, the parties acknowledge that Landlord has provided that certain Warm Up Allowance for the Warm Up Work (each as defined in Exhibit C), and accordingly, Landlord shall only have an obligation to fund Base Modifications to the extent that such Base Modification work (a) is not included in the Warm Up Allowance, (b) does not arise in connection with Tenants construction of the Annex, and (c) is not triggered as a result any changes to the Warm Up Work attached to this Lease made by or at the request of Tenant (other than changes to the Warm Up Work required by governmental authorities).
7.4 No Nuisance. Tenant shall not (i) do or permit anything to be done in or about the Premises, or any other portion of the Project, which would injure or materially annoy, or obstruct or interfere with the rights of, Landlord or other occupants of the Project, or others lawfully in or about the Project; (ii) use or allow the Premises to be used in any manner inappropriate for comparable buildings in Emeryville, California, or for any improper or objectionable purposes; or (iii) cause, maintain or permit any nuisance or waste in, on or about the Premises, or any other portion of the Project; provided, however, that the operations of Tenant that are in compliance with all Requirements and are consistent with the ordinary course business operations of other tenants of the Project, or are consistent with the ordinary course of business operations of first class cGMP antibody manufacturing facilities, shall not be deemed to breach this Section 7.4.
7.5 Hazardous Materials.
7.5.1 Compliance with Environmental Laws. Simultaneously herewith, Tenant has delivered to Landlord Tenants executed initial Hazardous Materials Disclosure Certificate (the Initial HazMat Certificate), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit H, to be approved or disapproved by Landlord in its reasonable discretion. Tenant covenants, represents and warrants to Landlord that the information in the Initial HazMat Certificate is true and correct and accurately describes the use(s) of Hazardous Materials which will be made and/or used on the
Premises by Tenant. Tenant shall, commencing with the date which is one year from the Commencement Date and continuing every year thereafter, deliver to Landlord, an executed Hazardous Materials Disclosure Certificate (the HazMat Certificate), in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit H, describing Tenants then present use of Hazardous Materials on the Premises, and any other reasonably necessary documents as requested by Landlord; provided, however, Tenant shall deliver an updated HazMat Certificate at any time that Tenant desires Landlord to approve a change to any information in a HazMat Certificate previously approved by Landlord. Tenant shall provide to Landlord access to all testing results that are required as a provision of any permits issued to Tenant in connection with Hazardous Materials. Except pursuant to a Landlord approved HazMat Certificate, Tenant shall not be entitled to use or store any Hazardous Materials on, in, or about any portion of the Premises or Project without, in each instance, obtaining Landlords prior written consent thereto. If Landlord, in its commercially reasonable discretion, expressly consents in writing to any such usage or storage, then Tenant shall be permitted to use and/or store only those Hazardous Materials and in such quantities (a) that are necessary for Tenants business, and (b), if applicable, to the extent disclosed in the most recent HazMat Certificate. Tenant agrees that any changes to the type and/or quantities of Hazardous Materials specified in the most recent HazMat Certificate may be implemented only with the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent may be given or withheld in Landlords reasonable discretion. Without limiting the generality of Section 7.3 above, Tenant and all other Tenant Parties shall at all times comply with all applicable Environmental Laws with respect to the use and occupancy of any portion of the Project pursuant to this Lease. Tenant and all other Tenant Parties shall not generate, store, handle, or otherwise use, or allow, the generation, storage, handling, or use of, Hazardous Materials in the Premises or transport the same through the Project, except (i) for nominal amounts of household cleaning materials and office supplies which are the minimum amount necessary for the operation of Tenants business or as otherwise disclosed and approved by Landlord in a HazMat Certificate, and (ii) in accordance with the Rules and Regulations, all Environmental Laws and such other conditions as Landlord may from time to time impose. In the event of a release of any Hazardous Materials caused by, or due to the act or neglect of, Tenant or any other Tenant Parties, Tenant shall immediately notify Landlord and take such remedial actions, at Tenants sole cost and expense, as Landlord may direct in Landlords reasonable discretion as necessary or appropriate to abate, remediate and/or clean up the same. If so elected by Landlord by notice to Tenant, Landlord shall take such remedial actions on behalf of Tenant at Tenants sole cost and expense. In any event, Landlord shall have the right, without liability or obligation to Tenant, to direct and/or supervise Tenants remedial actions and to specify the scope thereof and specifications therefor. Tenant and the other Tenant Parties shall use, handle, store and transport any Hazardous Materials in accordance with applicable Environmental Laws, and shall notify Landlord of any notice of violation of Environmental Laws which it receives from any governmental agency having jurisdiction. In no event shall Landlord be designated as the generator on, nor shall Landlord be responsible for preparing, any manifest relating to Hazardous Materials generated or used by Tenant or any other Tenant Parties.
7.5.2 California Health & Safety Code Section 25359.7. Additional information regarding environmental conditions at the Project is included in Exhibit E to this Lease, which is attached hereto and incorporated by reference herein.
7.5.3 Exculpation of Tenant. Tenant shall not be liable to Landlord for nor otherwise obligated to Landlord under any provision of the Lease with respect to the following:
(i) any claim, remediation, obligation, investigation, obligation, liability, cause of action, attorneys fees, consultants cost, expense or damage resulting from any Hazardous Materials present in, on or about the Premises to the extent not caused or otherwise permitted, directly or indirectly, by Tenant or the other Tenant Parties; or (ii) the removal, investigation, monitoring or remediation of any Hazardous Material present in, on or about the Premises caused by any source, including third parties, other than Tenant or the other Tenant Parties; provided, however, Tenant shall be fully liable for and otherwise obligated to Landlord under the provisions of this Lease for all liabilities, costs, damages, penalties, claims, judgments, expenses (including without limitation, attorneys and experts fees and costs) and losses to the extent (a) Tenant or any of the other Tenant Parties contributes to the presence of such Hazardous Materials, or Tenant and/or any of the other Tenant Parties exacerbates the conditions caused by such Hazardous Materials, or (b) Tenant and/or the other Tenant Parties allows or permits persons over which Tenant or any of the other Tenant Parties has control, and/or for which Tenant or any of the other Tenant Parties are legally responsible for, to cause such Hazardous Materials to be present in, on, under, through or about any portion of the Premises, or (c) Tenant and/or any of the other Tenant Parties does not take all reasonably appropriate actions to prevent such persons over which Tenant or any of the other Tenant Parties has control and/or for which Tenant or any of the other Tenant Parties are legally responsible from causing the presence of Hazardous Materials in, on, under, through or about any portion of the Premises.
7.6 Special Provisions Relating to The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990.
7.6.1 Allocation of Responsibility to Landlord. As between Landlord and Tenant, Landlord shall be responsible to ensure that the Common Areas and path of travel to the Building shall comply with the requirements of Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12181, et seq., The Provisions Governing Public Accommodations and Services Operated by Private Entities), and all regulations promulgated thereunder, and all amendments, revisions or modifications thereto now or hereafter adopted or in effect in connection therewith (hereinafter collectively referred to as the ADA), and to take such actions and make such alterations and improvements as are necessary for such compliance. All costs incurred by Landlord in discharging its responsibilities under this Section 7.6.1 shall, if eligible as set forth in Section 1.1, be included in Operating Expenses.
7.6.2 Allocation of Responsibility to Tenant. As between Landlord and Tenant, subject to Section 7.3, Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall be responsible that the Building, all Tenant Improvements and Alterations to the Building, Tenants use and occupancy of the Building, and Tenants performance of its obligations under this Lease, comply with the requirements of the ADA, and to take such actions and make such Alterations as are necessary for such compliance; provided, however, that Tenant shall not make any such Alterations except in compliance with Section 10.
7.6.3 General. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, no act or omission of Landlord, including any approval, consent or acceptance by Landlord or Landlords agents, employees or other representatives, shall be deemed an agreement, acknowledgment, warranty, or other representation by Landlord that Tenant has complied with the ADA or that any action, alteration or improvement by Tenant complies or will comply with the
ADA or constitutes a waiver by Landlord of Tenants obligations to comply with the ADA under this Lease or otherwise. Any failure of Landlord to comply with the obligations of the ADA shall not relieve Tenant from any obligations under this Lease or constitute or be construed as a constructive or other eviction of Tenant or disturbance of Tenants use and possession of the Premises. California law requires Landlord to notify Tenant whether Landlord has had the Premises inspected by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp). Landlord hereby discloses to Tenant that Landlord has not caused the Premises to be so inspected. A CASp can inspect the Premises and determine whether the Premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law. Although state law does not require a CASp inspection of the Premises, Landlord may not prohibit Tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the Premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of the Tenant, if requested by Tenant. The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of the CASp inspection, and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the Premises.
8. Tenant Services. Tenant shall be solely responsible, at its sole cost and expense, for the furnishing of all services and utilities to the Premises, including, but not limited to HVAC, electricity, water, telephone, telecommunications, janitorial, cleaning, pest control, trash removal, security services, and replacement of all light bulbs, lamps, starters and ballasts for lighting fixtures within the Premises (as well as maintenance and repairs of the Premises in accordance with the provisions of Section 9 below). In connection with the foregoing, Tenant hereby agrees that (i) Landlord shall have absolutely no obligation to provide any such or other services or utilities to the Premises, it being agreed that this Lease is in the nature of a net lease (although, as part of Operating Expenses, Landlord shall maintain and keep in service the existing utility connections located outside the Building connected to the exterior of the Building as necessary for distribution of such utilities to the Premises by Tenant), (ii) Tenant shall contract directly with the applicable utility providers to provide all such utilities to the Premises, which utilities shall be separately metered, at Tenants cost, and (iii) Tenant shall pay for the cost of such utilities supplied to the Premises (and for all services provided to the Premises) directly to the applicable provider thereof. All such services and utilities for the Premises shall be provided in such a manner so as to maintain the Premises and Building in first-class condition consistent with the first-class nature of the Project, and if Tenant fails to do so, and such failure shall continue for five (5) days after notice from Landlord (which notice shall not be required in the event of an emergency), Landlord shall have the right to provide such services and/or such utilities and any charges or costs incurred by Landlord in connection therewith shall be deemed Additional Rent due and payable by Tenant upon receipt by Tenant of a written statement thereof from Landlord.
8.1 Overstandard Tenant Use. If Tenant shall use, or desire to use, electricity, water, HVAC or any other utilities for the Premises in quantities that exceed the capacity of the equipment supplying the same to the Building as of the date Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant, then, (i) subject to applicable laws, and the express provisions of this Lease, and subject to Landlords approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, Tenant shall, at Tenants sole cost and expense, install such supplemental equipment as may be reasonably required to provide such excess capacity, and (ii) Tenant shall pay for the costs of any increased wear and tear on existing Building systems and equipment (and repair and replacement of any such Building systems and equipment in accordance with Section 9 below) caused by such excess use.
8.2 Interruption of Use. Tenant agrees that Landlord shall not be liable for damages, by abatement of Rent or otherwise, for failure to furnish or delay in furnishing any service (including telephone and telecommunication services), or for any diminution in the quality or quantity thereof, when such failure or delay or diminution is occasioned, in whole or in part, by breakage, repairs, replacements, or improvements, by any strike, lockout or other labor trouble, by inability to secure electricity, gas, water, or other fuel at the Building or Project after reasonable effort to do so, by any riot or other dangerous condition, emergency, accident or casualty whatsoever, by act or default of Tenant or other parties, or by any other cause beyond Landlords reasonable control; and such failures or delays or diminution shall never be deemed to constitute an eviction or disturbance of Tenants use and possession of the Premises or relieve Tenant from paying Rent or performing any of its obligations under this Lease. Furthermore, Landlord shall not be liable under any circumstances for a loss of, or injury to, property or for injury to, or interference with, Tenants business, including, without limitation, loss of profits, however occurring, through or in connection with or incidental to a failure to furnish any of the services or utilities as set forth in this Section 8. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Tenant shall be entitled to abate Base Rent due hereunder, to the extent that utility services to the Premises are interrupted or suspended solely as a result of Landlords or its authorized representatives gross negligence or willful misconduct, for a period of three (3) or more consecutive business days, provided that, as a result thereof, Tenant is prevented from using the Premises and/or there is a material disruption in Tenants ability to conduct cGMP manufacturing operations. Landlord will use its best efforts to promptly restore utility or service disruptions arising out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its authorized representatives.
8.3 Janitorial Service. Landlord shall not be obligated to provide any janitorial services to the Premises or replace any light bulbs, lamps, starters and ballasts for lighting fixtures within the Premises. Tenant shall be solely responsible, at Tenants sole cost and expense, for (i) performing all janitorial services, trash removal and other cleaning of the Premises, and (ii) replacement of all light bulbs, lamps, starters and ballasts for lighting fixtures within the Premises, all as appropriate to maintain the Premises in a first-class manner consistent with the first-class nature of the Building and Project. Such services to be provided by Tenant shall be performed by contractors and pursuant to service contracts approved by Landlord. Landlord shall have the right to inspect the Premises upon reasonable notice to Tenant and to require Tenant to provide additional cleaning, if necessary. In the event Tenant shall fail to provide any of the services described in this Section 8.3 to be performed by Tenant within five (5) days after notice from Landlord, which notice shall not be required in the event of an emergency, Landlord shall have the right to provide such services and any charge or cost incurred by Landlord in connection therewith shall be deemed Additional Rent due and payable by Tenant upon receipt by Tenant of a written statement of cost from Landlord.
8.4 Separate Metering; Utility Consumption Data. All of the electricity, water and/or other utilities provided to the Premises are separately metered, and Tenant shall pay for the cost of all such utilities so separately metered, or which are billed directly to Tenant, within ten (10) days after invoice. Tenant acknowledges and affirms its knowledge and understanding of Landlords efforts to benchmark utility consumption within the entirety of the Building. As such, Tenant authorizes Landlord, acting on behalf of the Tenant, to request that the applicable utility provider deliver directly to Landlord the necessary consumption information to enable Landlord to satisfy the requirements established by the US EPA for whole building data for the Energy Star
Portfolio Manager tool. Tenant agrees to deliver such additional written authorization to Landlord as may be required or mandated by the applicable utility provider to enable delivery of the requested consumption information. Tenant further authorizes Landlord to incorporate Tenants utility data in the Energy Star Portfolio Manager tool, and/or such other benchmarking initiatives as Landlord actively participates in, subject only to the provision that Landlord will exercise commercially reasonable care to maintain the privacy of Tenants specific consumption data. Any public dissemination of such data shall be in aggregate with other Project tenants and occupants consumption data, with no direct identification of individual Building or tenant usage. To the extent that the applicable utility provider is unable, or unwilling, to deliver the required utility consumption data as defined hereinabove, Tenant acknowledges and recognizes its obligation to deliver to Landlord that information directly, as an integral requirement of this Lease. Such information shall be delivered in the format set forth by Landlord for this purpose, on the same frequency as the invoicing received by Tenant from the utility provider for utilities consumed, unless some other frequency is agreed to in writing by Landlord and Tenant.
9. Maintenance of Premises. Subject to Landlords repair obligations in Section 9.1 and Section 9.2 below, Tenant shall, at Tenants own expense, and with contractors reasonably acceptable to Landlord and subject to Tenants compliance with the following provisions of this Section 9 and the provisions of Section 10 below, keep the Building and every part thereof, including, without limitation, all tenant improvements, the roof (including roof membrane), elevators, fire and life safety systems, Alterations, additions, equipment, restrooms, fixtures and furnishings therein (including all of the Buildings systems and equipment located within the Building and the HVAC equipment on the roof of the Building), all walls and wall coverings, doors, windows, glass, plate glass, ceilings and Generator Equipment (as defined below), in first-class order, repair and condition at all times following the date Landlord delivers possession of the Premises to Tenant and throughout the Lease Term. Such repair obligations shall include, without limitation, replacement of items as may be necessary to keep the same in the condition required hereinabove, notwithstanding that such replacements may be considered capital expenditures in accordance with accounting practices, and shall also include repairs of items above the ceiling, repairs of items below the floors (but not the floor slabs), and/or repairs of items within walls, such as, but not limited to, all plumbing and pipes for restrooms, the equipment providing distribution within the Building of the HVAC from the HVAC equipment on the roof, and the equipment providing distribution within the Building of all electricity and all other utilities required for the Premises (including all electrical panels in equipment rooms or elsewhere within the Building). As set forth in Article 10, Landlord shall have approval rights with respect to repairs and/or replacements which would also be construed as a Major Alteration. Tenants repair obligations set forth hereinabove shall include, without limitation, the obligation to promptly and adequately repair all damage to the Building and replace or repair all damaged or broken fixtures and appurtenances (subject, however, to the provisions below regarding casualty damage to the Building); provided however, that, at Landlords option, or if Tenant fails to make any such repairs, after written notice and ten (10) days in which to commence the repair (which repairs Tenant shall thereafter diligently and continuously pursue to completion) Landlord may, but need not, make such repairs and replacements, and Tenant shall pay Landlord the cost thereof upon being billed for same. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of this Section 9, in the event that any Building System serving the Premises and existing as of the date of substantial completion of the Warm Up Work requires replacement during the Term or any single capital repair expected to cost in excess of $25,000, then, at Tenants option, either (a)
Landlord shall be responsible for such replacement (or capital repair) and the cost thereof shall be amortized over the useful life of such item as reasonably determined by Landlord and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord on a monthly basis during the remaining Term for the amortized cost thereof (together with interest on the unamortized balance at 8% per annum), or (b) Tenant shall be responsible for such replacement (or capital repair) and Tenant shall pay the costs thereof and, once Tenant completes any such repair or replacement work and delivers to Landlord all invoices for such work mark as paid together with unconditional lien releases for all such work that comply with the appropriate provisions, as reasonably determined by Landlord, of California Civil Code Sections 8132-8138, then Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for such work. With respect to any HVAC system serving the Premises and existing as of the date of substantial completion of the Warm Up Work, the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall not apply if Tenant has failed to continuously maintain the HVAC service contracts required pursuant to Section 9.3 below and/or Tenant has otherwise failed to perform (or caused to be performed) all required maintenance and service of the HVAC system.
9.1 Landlords Reimbursable Repairs. Anything contained in Section 9 above to the contrary notwithstanding, and subject to Sections 12 and 13 of this Lease, Landlord shall maintain as part of Operating Expenses exterior landscaping and the Common Areas. There shall be no abatement of Rent and no liability of Landlord by reason of any injury to or interference with Tenants business arising from Landlords making of, or failure to make, any repairs, alterations or improvements in or to any portion of the Project, Building or the Premises or in or to fixtures, appurtenances and equipment therein. Tenant hereby waives and releases its right to make repairs at Landlords expense under Sections 1941 and 1942 of the California Civil Code; or under any similar law, statute, or ordinance now or hereafter in effect.
9.2 Landlords Other Repairs. Subject to the provisions of Sections 9 and 12, and except for repairs rendered necessary by any Alterations or the intentional or negligent acts or omissions of Tenant or any of Tenants agents, employees, contractors, invitees and licensees (in which event(s), Tenant shall be responsible for the cost of any such repairs or replacements), Landlord shall, at Landlords sole cost and expense (and not reimbursed as a component of Operating Expenses), keep in good repair the structural portions of the floors, foundations, building envelope (other than the roof), and exterior perimeter walls of the Building.
9.3 HVAC, Fire/Life Safety, Elevator and Generator Maintenance and Repair by Tenant. Tenant shall, at its own cost and expense, enter into a regularly scheduled preventive maintenance/service contract with a maintenance contractor for servicing all (i) hot water, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and equipment serving the Premises, (ii) all fire and life safety systems and elevators serving the Building, and (iii) all Generators in the Equipment Area. If Tenant desires to utilize maintenance contractors other than those authorized by the manufacturer of such equipment, then the maintenance contractors and the service contracts must be reasonably approved by Landlord. The service contracts must include all services suggested by the equipment manufacturers, as applicable, within the operation/maintenance manual and must become effective (and a copy thereof delivered to the Landlord) within thirty (30) days of the date of installation of such equipment. In the event Tenant fails to provide Landlord a copy of any service contract which meets the requirements of this Section 9.3 within thirty (30) days of receipt by Tenant of Landlords written request for the same, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late delivery fine of One Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($100.00) for each month, or
portion thereof, following such 30-day period in which Tenant fails to deliver the same. Upon Landlords request, Tenant shall furnish proof reasonably satisfactory to Landlord at least once per year that all such systems and equipment are being serviced in accordance with the maintenance/service contracts. Landlord reserves the right to request such proof once per quarter. Subject to Article 19 below, Landlord also reserves the right to inspect all HVAC, fire/life safety and elevator systems and Generator equipment with one (1) business days written notice. Within the three (3) month period preceding Tenants vacating the Premises for any reason, whether due to expiration of earlier termination of the Term, or otherwise, Tenant shall have all such systems and equipment checked and serviced to insure proper functioning and shall furnish Landlord satisfactory proof thereof upon request.
9.4 Generator Replacement. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of this Section 9, in the event that any Generator used by Tenant and existing as of the date of this Lease requires replacement during the Term, then Landlord shall be responsible for such replacement and the cost thereof shall be amortized over the useful life of such item as reasonably determined by Landlord and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord on a monthly basis during the remaining Term for the amortized cost thereof (together with interest on the unamortized balance at 8% per annum). With respect to any Generator serving the Premises and existing as of the date of substantial completion of the Warm Up Work, the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall not apply if Tenant has failed to continuously maintain the Generator service contracts required pursuant to Section 9.3 above and/or Tenant has otherwise failed to perform (or caused to be performed) all required maintenance and service of the Generators serving the Premises.
10. Alterations to Premises.
All Alterations to office areas, common areas and/or restrooms within the Building shall be made in accordance with the Building-standard procedures, specifications, and details (including the standard for construction and quality of materials in the Project) as then established by Landlord, all applicable Requirements, and the provisions of this Article 10. All Alterations to other areas within the Building such as lab space shall be made in accordance with all applicable Requirements and the provisions of this Article 10. The construction of Alterations that increase square footage of the Premises shall not result in an increase in Rent or change to Tenants Percentage Share.
10.1 Landlord Consent; Procedure. Subject to Section 10.7 below, Tenant shall not make or permit to be made any Alterations without Landlords prior written consent, which as to any Major Alterations may be given or withheld in Landlords reasonable discretion. Landlord and Tenant acknowledge that Tenant may desire to make significant Alterations to the Building to facilitate the Permitted Use of the Premises by Tenant, which may include, Tenant removing certain areas of the 2nd floor slab, use of portions of the 2nd floor as interstitial mechanical space for the purposes of serving cGMP areas in the Building, and/or to modify the ground floor slab in order to provide clearance for certain pieces of manufacturing equipment. Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold consent to any such significant Alterations. Subject to Landlords consent as provided herein, Tenant may also seek to build an annex (the Annex) onto the Building and/or modify or expand the Equipment Area in order for the Building to function for Tenants intended use. Unless Landlord otherwise agrees in writing, any such Annex construction or Equipment Area modification or expansion shall only occur, if at all, in the areas shown on Exhibit A-2
attached hereto. For purposes of this Article 10, Landlord is only permitted to withhold its consent to construction of Alterations (including, without limitation, the Annex) to the extent Landlord reasonably and in good faith believes such proposed Alteration: (a) would materially and adversely affect the structure of the Building; (b) would materially affect Landlords ability to re-lease the Building for the Permitted Use upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease; (c) would materially increase Landlords operating costs of the Project; and/or (d) would materially interfere with the rights of other tenants in the Project; provided, however, Landlord shall at all times have the right to (i) approve any element of such Alterations that may be seen from the outside of the Premises (including, without limitation, the appearance, exterior materials and colors, size and shape), and (ii) require reasonable and specific modifications to the Annex in order to maintain flexibility with respect to other potential future uses of the Building and Project; and provided, further, Landlord shall have the right to require Tenant to remove any such Alterations and restore the Premises upon surrender, subject to the terms of Section 10.6 below.
10.2 General Requirements.
10.2.1 All Alterations shall be designed and performed by or on behalf of Tenant at Tenants cost and expense; provided, however, that if any Alterations require work to be performed outside the Premises, Landlord may elect to perform such work at Tenants expense.
10.2.2 All Alterations shall be performed only by licensed, insured and bonded contractors, engineers or architects reasonably approved by Landlord, and shall be made in accordance with complete and detailed architectural, mechanical and engineering plans and specifications approved in writing by Landlord. Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its approval of any such contractors, engineers, architects, plans or specifications; provided, however, that Landlord may specify contractors, engineers or architects to perform work affecting the structural portions of the Project or the Building systems. Tenant shall engage only labor that is harmonious and compatible with other labor working in the Project. In the event of any labor disturbance caused by persons employed by Tenant or Tenants contractor, Tenant shall immediately take all actions necessary to eliminate such disturbance.
10.2.3 Prior to commencement of the Alterations, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord (i) any building or other permit required by Requirements in connection with the Alterations; (ii) a copy of executed construction contract(s); and (iii) written acknowledgments from all materialmen, contractors, artisans, mechanics, laborers and any other persons furnishing to Tenant with respect to the Premises any labor, services, materials, supplies or equipment in excess of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) in the aggregate that they will look exclusively to Tenant for payment of any sums in connection therewith and that Landlord shall have no liability for such costs. In addition, Tenant shall require its general contractor to carry and maintain the following insurance at no expense to Landlord, and Tenant shall furnish Landlord with satisfactory evidence thereof prior to the commencement of construction of the Alterations: (A) commercial general liability insurance with limits of not less than $2,000,000 combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage, including personal injury and death, and contractors protective liability, and products and completed operations coverage in an amount not less than $500,000 per incident, $1,000,000 in the aggregate; (B) comprehensive automobile liability insurance with a policy limit of not less than $1,000,000 each accident for bodily injury and property damage, providing coverage at least as broad as the Insurance Services Office (ISO) Business Auto
Coverage form covering Automobile Liability, code 1 any auto, and insuring against all loss in connection with the ownership, maintenance and operation of automotive equipment that is owned, hired or non-owned; (C) workers compensation with statutory limits and employers liability insurance with limits of not less than $100,000 per accident, $500,000 aggregate disease coverage and $100,000 disease coverage per employee; and (D) Builders All Risk insurance in an amount, not to exceed a reasonable amount, approved by Landlord covering the Alterations, including such extended coverage endorsements as may be reasonably required by Landlord. All such insurance policies (except workers compensation insurance) shall be endorsed to add Landlord, any Encumbrancer and Landlords designated agents as additional insureds with respect to liability arising out of work performed by or for Tenants general contractor, to specify that such insurance is primary and that any insurance or self-insurance maintained by Landlord shall not contribute with it, and to provide that coverage shall not be reduced, terminated, cancelled or materially modified except after thirty (30) days prior written notice has been given to Landlord. Landlord may inspect the original policies of such insurance coverage at any time. Upon Landlords request, Tenant shall deliver complete certified copies of such policies. Tenants general contractor shall furnish Landlord evidence of insurance for its subcontractors as may be reasonably required by Landlord.
10.2.4 Tenant shall give Landlord at least fifteen (15) days prior written notice of the date of commencement of any construction on the Premises to afford Landlord the opportunity of posting and recording appropriate notices of non-responsibility. Tenant shall comply with the requirements of Section 3110.5 of the California Civil Code as the contracting owner, to the extent applicable, and prior to commencement of construction, Tenant shall provide Landlord with evidence of compliance with said statute. Tenant acknowledges that the contractual waiver of the benefits of California Civil Code Section 3110.5 is expressly declared to be against public policy.
10.2.5 Tenant shall promptly commence construction of Alterations, cause such Alterations to be constructed in a good and workmanlike manner and in such a manner and at such times so that any such work shall not unreasonably or materially disrupt or interfere with the use, occupancy or operations of other tenants or occupants of the Project, and complete the same with due diligence as soon as possible after commencement. All trash which may accumulate in connection with Tenants construction activities shall be removed by Tenant at its own expense from the Premises and the Project.
10.3 Landlords Right to Inspect. Landlord or its agents shall have the right (but not the obligation) to inspect the construction of Alterations, and to require corrections of faulty construction or any material deviation from the plans for such Alterations as approved by Landlord; provided, however, that no such inspection shall (i) be deemed to create any liability on the part of Landlord, or (ii) constitute a representation by Landlord that the work so inspected conforms with such plans or complies with any applicable Requirements, or (iii) give rise to a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, Landlords continuing right at any time or from time to time to require the correction of any faulty work or any material deviation from such plans. In addition, under no circumstances shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for any damage, loss, cost or expense incurred by Tenant on account of Tenants plans and specifications, Tenants contractors, mechanics or engineers, design or construction of any Alteration, or delay in completion of any Alteration.
10.4 Tenants Obligations Upon Completion. Promptly following completion of any Alterations, Tenant shall (i) furnish to Landlord as-built drawings and specifications in CAD format showing the Alterations as made and constructed in the Premises, (ii) cause a timely notice of completion to be recorded in the Office of the Recorder of the County of Alameda in accordance with Civil Code Section 8182 or any successor statute, and (iii) deliver to Landlord evidence of full payment and unconditional final waivers of all liens for labor, services, or materials in excess of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) in the aggregate.
10.5 Repairs. If any part of the Building Systems shall be damaged during the performance of Alterations, Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord, and Landlord may elect to repair such damage at Tenants sole expense. Alternatively, Landlord may require Tenant to repair such damage at Tenants sole expense using contractors approved by Landlord.
10.6 Ownership and Removal of Alterations.
10.6.1 Ownership. All Alterations shall become a part of the Project and immediately belong to Landlord without compensation to Tenant, unless Landlord consents otherwise in writing; provided, however, that personal property, equipment, trade fixtures (including, without limitation, Tenants manufacturing and test equipment) and movable furniture, each that may be removed without material damage to the Premises (collectively, the FF&E) shall remain the property of Tenant. Tenant shall have the right to remove any FF&E installed by Tenant during the Term so long as Tenant promptly caps off and makes safe the Premises and repairs all damage to the Premises and Project caused by such removal.
10.6.2 Removal. If required by Landlord by written notice to Tenant delivered at the time Landlord approves any Alteration, Tenant, prior to the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of this Lease, shall, at Tenants sole cost and expense, (i) remove any or all such Alterations identified by Landlord for removal, (ii) restore the Premises to the condition existing prior to the installation of such Alterations, and (iii) repair all damage to the Premises or Project caused by the removal of such Alterations. Tenant shall use a contractor reasonably approved by Landlord for such removal and repair. If Tenant fails to remove, restore and repair under this Section, then Landlord may remove such Alterations and perform such restoration and repair, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in performing such removal, restoration and repair and in addition to all other remedies available to Landlord. If there are Alterations that are required to be removed by Tenant and have not been removed by Tenant by the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease, Landlord may require Tenant to hold-over possession of the Premises pursuant to Article 25 below until such time as Tenant vacates and has surrendered possession of the Premises in the condition required by this Lease. Subject to the foregoing provisions regarding removal, all Alterations shall be Landlords property and at the expiration of the Term or termination of this Lease shall remain, at Landlords sole election, on the Premises without compensation to Tenant.
10.7 Minor Alterations. Notwithstanding any provision in the foregoing to the contrary, Tenant may construct Minor Alterations in the Premises without Landlords prior written consent, but with prior notification to Landlord. Except to the extent inconsistent with this Section 10.7, Minor Alterations shall otherwise comply with the provisions of this Article 10. All references in this Lease to Alterations shall mean and include Minor Alterations, unless specified to the contrary.
10.8 Landlords Expenses. In connection with installing or removing Alterations, Tenant shall pay all reasonable and actual third party out-of-pocket fees and costs incurred by Landlord for review and approval of Tenants plans, specifications and working drawings, and an administration fee for Landlords oversight of any such construction, installation or removal of Alterations (in an amount not to exceed 1.5% of the cost thereof). Tenant shall pay the amount of all fees and costs owing pursuant to this Section 10.8 within thirty (30) days after receipt from Landlord of a statement or invoice therefor.
11. Liens. Except in the ordinary course of equipment financing liens that do not attach to the Premises, Building or Project, Tenant shall keep the Premises, the Building and the Project free from any liens arising out of any work performed or obligations incurred by or for, or materials furnished to, Tenant or any Tenant Parties pursuant to this Lease or otherwise. Landlord shall have the right to post and keep posted on the Premises any notices required by law or which Landlord may deem to be proper for the protection of Landlord, the Premises, the Building and the Project from such liens and to take any other action at the expense of Tenant that Landlord, in its commercially reasonable judgment, deems necessary or appropriate to prevent, remove or discharge such liens. In the event such lien is filed against the Premises, Building or Project, Tenant covenants and agrees to cause it to be immediately released and removed of record or bonded over by providing a surety bond reasonably satisfactory to Landlord in an amount equal to at least one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the amount of the contested lien claim or demand. If Tenant fails to post such bond or have such lien removed within ten (10) days of notice of such lien, Landlord, at its sole option, may immediately take all action necessary to release and remove such lien, without any duty to investigate the validity thereof, and all sums, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees and costs, incurred by Landlord in connection with such lien shall be deemed additional Rent under this Lease and shall be due and payable by Tenant upon demand.
12. Damage or Destruction.
12.1 Obligation to Repair. Except as otherwise provided in this Article 12, if the Premises are damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty, Landlord shall, as soon as reasonably practicable (but in no event more than sixty (60) days after such event), notify Tenant in writing (Landlords Damage Notice) of the estimated time, in Landlords reasonable judgment, required to repair such damage or destruction. If Landlords estimate of time is less than two hundred seventy (270) days after the date of damage or destruction, then (i) Landlord shall proceed with all due diligence to repair the Premises (excluding Tenants personal property, trade fixtures and any Tenant Improvements or Alterations installed by or on behalf of Tenant other than the Warm Up Work), and/or the portion of the Building or the Project necessary for Tenants use and occupancy of the Premises, to substantially the condition existing immediately before such damage or destruction, as permitted by and subject to then applicable Requirements; and (ii) this Lease shall remain in full force and effect. In all cases, to the extent such damage or destruction did not result from the negligence or willful act or omission of Tenant or other Tenant Parties, Base Rent shall abate for such part of the Premises rendered unusable by Tenant in the conduct of its business during the time such part is so unusable and not actually used by Tenant or any other Tenant Parties, in the proportion that the Rentable Area contained in the unusable part of the Premises bears to the total Rentable Area of the Premises.
12.2 Landlords Election. If Landlord determines that the necessary repairs cannot be completed within two hundred seventy (270) days after the date of damage or destruction, or if such damage or destruction arises from causes not covered by Landlords insurance policy then in force, Landlord may elect, in its sole and exclusive discretion, in its notice to Tenant pursuant to Section 12.1, to (i) terminate this Lease or (ii) repair the Premises (excluding Tenants personal property, trade fixtures and any Tenant Improvements or Alterations installed by or on behalf of Tenant other than the Warm Up Work) or the portion of the Building or the Project necessary for Tenants use and occupancy of the Premises pursuant to the applicable provisions of Section 12.1 above. If Landlord terminates this Lease, then this Lease shall terminate as of the date of occurrence of the damage or destruction.
12.3 Tenants Termination Option. If (i) Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease pursuant to Landlords termination right as provided above, (ii) the damage is not the result of Tenants negligence or willful misconduct, (iii) the damage substantially interferes with Tenants access to or usage of the Premises and Tenant does not thereafter use the Premises, and (iv) Landlords restoration work cannot, in the reasonable opinion of Landlords licensed contractor, be substantially completed within two hundred seventy (270) days after the date of Landlords Damage Notice, then Tenant may elect to terminate this Lease by delivering written notice thereof to Landlord within thirty (30) days after Tenants receipt of Landlords Damage Notice, which termination shall be effective as of the date which is ninety (90) days after the date such termination notice is delivered to Landlord.
12.4 Tenant Repairs. If the Lease is not terminated in accordance with Section 12.2 or 12.3 above, Tenant shall promptly repair all damage to all Tenant Improvements and all Alterations constructed by Tenant or on Tenants behalf, and shall pay the costs to repair all such Tenant Improvements constructed by Tenant or on Tenants behalf (including, without limitation, those improvements constructed pursuant to Exhibit C attached hereto) and any Alterations other than the Warm Up Work. Tenant shall also promptly replace or repair, at Tenants cost and expense, all of Tenants movable furniture, equipment, trade fixtures and other personal property in the Premises which Tenant shall be responsible for insuring during the Term of this Lease, as determined by Tenant.
12.5 Damage at End of Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 12, if the Premises, or any other portion thereof or of the Building, are substantially damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty within the last twelve (12) months of the Term (such that repairs and/or restoration work would take in excess of ninety (90) days) and Tenant has not timely exercised any remaining Extension Option, then Landlord shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate this Lease by notice to Tenant given within ninety (90) days after the date of such event. Such termination shall be effective on the date specified in Landlords notice to Tenant, but in no event earlier than thirty (30) days after the date of Landlords notice. In addition, if the Premises is destroyed or materially damaged during the last twelve (12) months of the Term such that restoration work cannot, in the reasonable opinion of Landlords licensed contractor, be substantially completed with ninety (90) days after the date of damage and such damage is not the result of the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or Tenants agents,
employees or contractors, and Tenant has not already, timely exercised any remaining Extension Option, then Tenant shall have the option to terminate this Lease by giving written notice to Landlord of the exercise of such option within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice from Landlord as to the anticipated time necessary to substantially complete repairs thereto, in which event this Lease shall cease and terminate as of the date of such notice.
12.6 Deductible and Uninsured Casualty. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additional Rent, the commercially reasonable deductible amounts under the insurance policies obtained by Landlord and Tenant under this Lease if the proceeds are used to repair the Premises. However, if other portions of the Project are also damaged by said casualty and insurance proceeds are payable therefor, then Tenant shall only pay its proportionate share of the commercially reasonable deductible equal to the Tenants Percentage Share for the Project. If any portion of the Premises is damaged and is not fully covered by the aggregate of insurance proceeds received by Landlord and any applicable deductible, and Tenant does not voluntarily contribute any shortfall thereof, then Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease by delivering written notice of termination to Tenant within sixty (60) days after the date of notice to Tenant of such event, whereupon this Lease shall terminate ten (10) business days after Tenants receipt of such notice, and Tenant shall immediately vacate the Premises and surrender possession thereof to Landlord.
12.7 Waiver of Statutes. The respective rights and obligations of Landlord and Tenant in the event of any damage to or destruction of the Premises, or any other portion of the Building or the Project, are governed exclusively by this Lease. Accordingly, Tenant hereby waives the provisions of any law to the contrary, including California Civil Code Sections 1932(2), 1933(4), 1941 and 1942 and any similar or successor laws and any other laws providing for the termination of a lease upon destruction of the leased property.
12.8 Meet and Confer. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, in the event Landlord elects to terminate the Lease pursuant to the provisions of this Section 12, Landlord and Tenant shall first promptly meet and confer to discuss the economic losses that will be suffered by Landlord as a result of the damage or destruction giving rise to Landlords election to terminate, and Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to withdraw Landlords election to terminate upon Tenants agreement (if Tenant so chooses) to financially offset such economic losses upon terms that are equitable and reasonably approved by Landlord and Tenant; provided, however, Tenant shall not have the right to cause Landlord to withdraw Landlords election to terminate the Lease as provided herein.
13. Eminent Domain.
13.1 Effect of Taking. Except as otherwise provided in this Article 13, if all or any part of the Premises is taken as a result of the exercise of the power of eminent domain or condemned for any public or quasi-public purpose, or if any transfer is made in avoidance of such exercise of the power of eminent domain (collectively, taken or a taking), this Lease shall terminate as to the part of the Premises so taken as of the effective date of such taking. On a taking of a portion of the Premises, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by notice to the Landlord within thirty (30) days after the effective date of such taking, if the portion of the Premises taken is of such extent and nature so as to materially impair Tenants business use of the balance of the Premises, as reasonably determined by Tenant. Such termination shall be operative
as of the effective date of the taking. Landlord may also terminate this Lease on a taking of any other portion of the Project if Landlord reasonably determines that such taking is of such extent and nature as to render the operation of the remaining Project economically infeasible or to require a substantial reconstruction of such remaining portion. Landlord shall elect such termination by notice to Tenant given within thirty (30) days after the effective date of such taking, and such termination shall be operative as of the effective date of such taking. Upon a taking of the Premises which does not result in a termination of this Lease, the Base Rent shall thereafter be reduced as of the effective date of such taking in the proportion that the Rentable Area of the Premises so taken bears to the total Rentable Area of the Premises.
13.2 Condemnation Proceeds. Except as hereinafter provided, in the event of any taking, Landlord shall have the right to all compensation, damages, income, rent or awards made with respect thereto (collectively an award), including any award for the value of the leasehold estate created by this Lease. No award to Landlord shall be apportioned and, except for Tenants rights hereinafter specified, Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any right of Tenant in any award made for any taking. Tenant may seek to recover, at its cost and expense, as a separate claim, any damages or awards payable on a taking of the Premises to compensate for the unamortized cost paid by Tenant for the alterations, additions or improvements, if any, made by Tenant during the initial improvement of the Premises pursuant to the Work Letter and for any Alterations, or for Tenants personal property taken, or for interference with or interruption of Tenants business (including goodwill), or for Tenants removal and relocation expenses.
13.3 Restoration of Premises. On a taking of the Premises which does not result in a termination of this Lease, Landlord and Tenant shall restore the Premises as nearly as possible to the condition they were in prior to the taking in accordance with the applicable provisions and allocation of responsibility for repair and restoration of the Premises on damage or destruction pursuant to Article 12 above, and both parties shall use any awards received by such party attributable to the Premises for such purpose.
13.4 Taking at End of Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 13, if the Premises, or any other portion thereof or of the Building or the Project, are taken within the last twelve (12) months of the Term and Tenant has not timely exercised any remaining Extension Option, then Landlord or Tenant shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate this Lease by notice to the other party given within ninety (90) days after the date of such taking. Such termination shall be effective on the date specified in such notice to the other party, but in no event later than the end of such ninety (90) day period.
13.5 Tenant Waiver. The rights and obligations of Landlord and Tenant on any taking of the Premises or any other portion of the Building or the Project are governed exclusively by this Lease. Accordingly, Tenant hereby waives the provisions of any law to the contrary, including California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 1265.120 and 1265.130, or any similar or successor statute.
13.6 Meet and Confer. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, in the event Landlord elects to terminate the Lease pursuant to the provisions of this Section 13, Landlord and Tenant shall first promptly meet and confer to discuss the economic losses that will be suffered by Landlord as a result of the taking giving rise to Landlords election to terminate, and Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to withdraw Landlords election to terminate upon Tenants agreement (if Tenant so chooses) to financially offset such economic losses upon terms that are equitable and reasonably approved by Landlord and Tenant; provided, however, Tenant shall not have the right to cause Landlord to withdraw Landlords election to terminate the Lease as provided herein.

As used herein, an assignment includes any sale or other transfer (such as by consolidation, merger or reorganization) of a majority of the voting stock of Tenant, if Tenant is a corporation, or any sale or other transfer of a majority of the beneficial interest in Tenant, if Tenant is any other form of entity. Tenant acknowledges that the limitations on assignment and subletting contained in this Article 17 are expressly authorized by California Civil Code Section 1995.010 et seq., and are fully enforceable.
17.2 Request by Tenant; Landlord Response. If Tenant desires to effect an assignment or sublease, Tenant shall submit to Landlord a request for consent together with the identity of the parties to the transaction, the nature of the transferees proposed business use for the Premises, the proposed documentation for and terms of the transaction, and all other information reasonably requested by Landlord concerning the proposed transaction and the parties involved therein, including certified financial information, credit reports, the business background and references regarding the transferee, and an opportunity to meet and meeting the transferee.

Without limiting the grounds on which it may be reasonable for Landlord to withhold its consent to an assignment or sublease, Tenant agrees that Landlord would be acting reasonably in withholding its consent in the following instances: (i) if Tenant is then in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period; (ii) if the transferee is a governmental or quasi-governmental agency, foreign or domestic; (iii) if the transferee is an existing tenant in the Project; (iv) if, in Landlords sole judgment, the transferees business, use and/or occupancy of the Premises would (A) violate any of the terms of this Lease or the lease of any other tenant in the Project, or (B) not be comparable to and compatible with the types of use by other tenants in the Project, (C) fall within any category of use for which Landlord would not then lease space in the Project under its leasing guidelines and policies then in effect, or (D) results in an material increase in density per floor than typical of a Project of this nature or requires a material increase in services by Landlord; (v) if the financial condition of the transferee does not meet the requirements applied by Landlord for other tenants in the Project under leases with comparable terms, or in Landlords sole judgment the business reputation of the transferee is not consistent with that of other tenants of the Project; or (vi) in the case of a sublease, the rent payable by the subtenant is over fifteen percent (15%) less than the then prevailing rate being charged by Landlord for the lease of comparable space in the Project. If Landlord consents to an assignment or sublease, the terms of such assignment or sublease transaction shall not be modified without Landlords prior written consent pursuant to this Article 17. Landlords consent to an assignment or subletting shall not be deemed consent to any subsequent assignment or subletting. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 17.3, Tenant may sublease a portion of the Premises to an existing tenant at the Project so long as Landlord does not then have comparable vacant space in a reasonably comparable size available to lease to such existing tenant.
17.4 Costs and Expenses. As a condition to the effectiveness of any assignment or subletting under this Article 17, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a processing fee of five hundred dollars ($500.00) plus all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including attorneys fees and disbursements, incurred by Landlord in evaluating Tenants requests for assignment or sublease, whether or not Landlord consents to an assignment or sublease. Tenant shall pay the processing fee with Tenants request for Landlords consent under Section 17.2.
17.5 Payment of Excess Rent and Other Consideration. Tenant shall also pay to Landlord, promptly upon Tenants receipt thereof, fifty percent (50%) of any and all rent, sums or other consideration, howsoever denominated, realized by Tenant in connection with any assignment or sublease transaction in excess of the Base Rent and Escalation Rent payable hereunder (prorated to reflect the Rent allocable to the portion of the Premises if a sublease), after first deducting, (i) in the case of an assignment, reasonable real estate commissions and attorneys fees and expenses paid by Tenant in connection with such assignment, any free rent, moving expenses or other monetary concessions offered to the assignee, and the reasonable hard and soft cost of any or all Alterations made to the Premises at Tenants cost when building out the initial Tenant Improvements in the Premises and to otherwise effect the assignment, (ii) in the case of a sublease, reasonable real estate commissions and attorneys fees and expenses paid by Tenant in connection with such sublease, any free rent, moving expenses or other monetary concessions offered to the sublessee, and the reasonable hard and soft cost of any or all Alterations made to the Premises at Tenants cost when building out the initial Tenant Improvements in the Premises and to otherwise effect the sublease.

Each sublease shall be in a form reasonably approved by Landlord and shall be made subject to this Lease and all of the terms, covenants and conditions contained herein; and the surrender of this Lease by Tenant, or a mutual cancellation thereof, or the termination of this Lease in accordance with its terms, shall not work a merger and shall, at the option of Landlord, terminate all or any existing subleases or operate as an assignment to Landlord of any or all such subleases. No sublessee (other than Landlord) shall have the further right to sublet. Any assignment by a sublessee of its sublease shall be subject to Landlords prior consent in the same manner as a sublease by Tenant. No sublease, once consented to by Landlord, shall be modified without Landlords prior consent. No assignment or sublease shall be binding on Landlord unless the transferee delivers to Landlord a fully executed counterpart of the assignment or sublease which contains the assumption by the assignee, or recognition by the sublessee, of the provisions of this Section 17.6, in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord, but the failure or refusal of a transferee to deliver such instrument shall not release or discharge such transferee from the provisions and obligations of this Section 17.6, but such failure shall constitute a default by Tenant under this Lease.
17.7 No Release. No assignment or sublease shall release Tenant from its obligations under this Lease, whether arising before or after the assignment or sublease. The acceptance of Rent by Landlord from any other person shall not be deemed a waiver by Landlord of any provision of this Article 17. On a default by any assignee of Tenant in the performance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Lease, Landlord may proceed directly against Tenant without the necessity of commencing or exhausting remedies against such assignee. No consent by Landlord to any further assignments or sublettings of this Lease, or any modification, amendment or termination of this Lease, or extension, waiver or modification of payment or any other obligations under this Lease, or any other action by Landlord with respect to any assignee or sublessee, or the insolvency, or bankruptcy or default of any such assignee or sublessee, shall affect the continuing liability of Tenant for its obligations under this Lease and Tenant waives any defense arising out of or based thereon, including any suretyship defense of exoneration. Landlord shall have no obligation to notify Tenant or obtain Tenants consent with respect to any of the foregoing matters.
17.8 No Encumbrance. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article 17, Tenant shall have no right to encumber, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise transfer this Lease, or any of Tenants interest or rights hereunder, as security for any obligation or liability of Tenant.

Transferee is not a Related Entity, the Permitted Transferee has a tangible net worth and net income, in the aggregate, computed in accordance with standard commercial real estate accounting practices (but excluding goodwill as an asset), which is equal to or greater than Tenant as of the date of this Lease, then Tenant may assign this Lease or sublease any portion of the Premises (1) to any Related Entity, or (2) in connection with any merger, consolidation or sale of substantially all of the assets of Tenant, or Tenants affiliates, without having to obtain the prior written consent of Landlord thereto (each such transfer shall be referred to herein as a Permitted Transfer and each transferee pursuant to a Permitted Transfer shall be referred to herein as a Permitted Transferee). Any Permitted Transfer shall in no way relieve Tenant of any liability Tenant may have under this Lease and such assignee or sublessee shall be jointly and severally liable with Tenant hereunder. For purposes of this Section 17, the term Related Entity shall mean any entity controlled by, under control with, or in control of Tenant. The term control as used in the immediately preceding sentence shall mean having direct ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the ownership interests of an entity and having the ability to direct the management and policies of such entity.

Tenant shall observe and comply, and shall cause the other Tenant Parties to observe and comply, with the Rules and Regulations of the Building, copies of which are attached to this Lease as Exhibit F, and, after notice thereof, with all modifications and additions thereto from time to time promulgated in writing by Landlord which do not materially increase Tenants obligations under the Lease, materially decrease Tenants rights under the Lease, or materially impair Tenants ability to utilize the Premises as a first class cGMP antibody manufacturing facility. Landlord shall not be responsible to Tenant or other Tenant Parties for noncompliance with any Rules and Regulations of the Building by any other tenant, sublessee, employee, agent, contractor, licensee, invitee or other occupant of the Building.

19.1 Right to Enter. Upon not less than one (1) business days notice to Tenant (except in emergencies or in order to provide regularly scheduled or other routine Building standard services or additional services requested by Tenant, or post notices of nonresponsibility or other notices permitted or required by law when no such notice shall be required) Landlord and its authorized agents, employees, and contractors may enter the Premises at reasonable hours to (and accompanied by Tenant if not in an emergency situation): (i) inspect the same; (ii) determine Tenants compliance with its obligations hereunder; (iii) exhibit the same to prospective purchasers, lenders or tenants (with respect to prospective tenants, only during the last 12 months of the Term); (iv) supply any services to be provided by Landlord hereunder; (v) post notices of nonresponsibility or other notices permitted or required by law; (vi) make repairs, improvements or alterations, or perform maintenance in or to, the Premises or any other portion of the Building, including Building systems; and (vii) perform such other functions as Landlord deems reasonably necessary or desirable. Landlord may also grant access to the Premises to government or utility representatives and bring and use on or about the Premises such equipment as reasonably necessary to accomplish the purposes of Landlords entry. Landlord shall use reasonable good faith efforts to effect all entries and perform all work hereunder in such manner as to minimize, to the extent practical, interference with Tenants use and occupancy of the Premises. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, in all cases where Landlord requires or is granted access to the Premises, while within the Premises and except in the event of an emergency, Landlord and its authorized agents, employees, and contractors, shall at all times comply with Tenants security policies and all standard operating procedures for the Premises.
19.2 Tenant Waiver of Claims. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord, in connection with Landlords activities under this Article 19, may, among other things, erect scaffolding or other necessary structures in the Premises and/or the Project, limit or eliminate access to portions of the Project (other than the Premises), including portions of the common areas, or perform work in the Premises and/or the Project, which work may create noise, dust, vibration, odors or leave debris in the Premises and/or the Project, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to abate any such dust and debris. Without limiting the generality of Section 16.1 above, Tenant waives any claim for damages for any inconvenience to or interference with Tenants business, or any loss of occupancy or quiet enjoyment of the Premises, or any other loss, occasioned by any entry effected or work performed under this Article 19, and Tenant shall not be entitled to any abatement of Rent by reason of the exercise of any such right of entry or performance of such work. No entry to the Premises by Landlord or anyone acting under Landlord shall constitute a forcible or unlawful entry into, or a detainer of, the Premises or an eviction, actual or constructive, of Tenant from the Premises, or any portion thereof; provided, however, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any unreasonable interference with Tenants use and occupancy of the Premises as a result of any entry by Landlord permitted under this Article 19. Prior to knowingly causing any interference with Tenants business or access at the Premises, Landlord shall meet and confer with Tenant to develop a reasonably agreeable plan to ameliorate any such interference, which may include, reasonably scheduling Landlords activities during any Tenant planned shutdown of operations at the Premises.

In addition to the foregoing, if, at any time, Tenant is in default of any term, condition or provision of this Lease and Landlord terminates the Lease during the initial Term based on such default, any express or implicit waiver by Landlord of Tenants requirement to pay Abated Base Rent shall be null and void and Tenant shall immediately pay to Landlord all Abated Base Rent so expressly or implicitly waived by Landlord in accordance with the Basic Lease Information. If Landlord does not terminate this Lease, Tenant shall in addition to continuing to pay all Rent when due, also pay Landlords costs of attempting to relet the Premises, any repairs and alterations necessary to prepare the Premises for such reletting, and brokerage commissions and attorneys fees incurred in connection therewith, less the rents, if any, actually received from such reletting. Notwithstanding Landlords election to continue this Lease in effect, Landlord may at any time thereafter terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section 20.3.
20.4 Damages Upon Termination. If and when Landlord terminates this Lease pursuant to Section 20.3, Landlord may exercise all its rights and remedies available under California Civil Code Section 1951.2, including the right to recover from Tenant the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of such Rent loss that the Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided. As used herein and in Civil Code Section 1951.2, time of award means either the date upon which Tenant pays to Landlord the amount recoverable by Landlord, or the date of entry of any determination, order or judgment of any court or other legally constituted body determining the amount recoverable, whichever occurs first.
20.5 Computation of Certain Rent for Purposes of Default. For purposes of computing unpaid Rent pursuant to Section 20.4 above, Escalation Rent for the balance of the Term shall be determined by averaging the amount paid by Tenant as Escalation Rent for the calendar year prior to the year in which the default occurred, increasing such average amount for each calendar year (or portion thereof) remaining in the balance of the Term at a per annum compounded rate equal to the mean average rate of increase for the preceding five (5) calendar years in the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Consumer Price Index (All Urban Consumers, All Items, 1982-1984 = 100) for the Metropolitan Area of which San
Francisco, California, is a part, and adding together the resulting amounts. If such Index is discontinued or revised, such computation shall be made by reference to the index designated as the successor or substitute index by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, or its successor agency, and if none is designated, by a comparable index as determined by Landlord in its sole discretion, which would likely achieve a comparable result to that achieved by the use of the Consumer Price Index. If the base year of the Consumer Price Index is changed, then the conversion factor specified by the Bureau, or successor agency, shall be utilized to determine the Consumer Price Index.
20.6 Landlords Right to Cure Defaults. If Tenant fails to pay Rent (other than Base Rent and Escalation Rent) required to be paid by it hereunder, or fails to perform any other obligation under this Lease, and Tenant fails to cure such default within the applicable cure period, if any, specified in Section 20.2 above, then Landlord may, without waiving any of Landlords rights in connection therewith or releasing Tenant from any of its obligations or such default, make any such payment or perform such other obligation on behalf of Tenant. All payments so made by Landlord, and all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord to perform such obligations, shall be due and payable by Tenant as Rent immediately upon receipt of Landlords demand therefor.
20.7 Waiver of Forfeiture. Tenant hereby waives California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1179, California Civil Code Section 3275, and all such similar and/or successor laws now or hereinafter enacted which would entitle Tenant to seek relief against forfeiture in connection with any termination of this Lease.
20.8 Remedies Cumulative. The rights and remedies of Landlord under this Lease are cumulative and in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity. Landlords pursuit of any such right or remedy shall not constitute a waiver or election of remedies with respect to any other right or remedy.
21. Subordination, Attornment and Nondisturbance.
21.1 Subordination. This Lease is subject and subordinate to all present and future ground or underlying leases of the Project and to the lien of any mortgages or trust deeds, now or hereafter in force against the Project, if any, and to all renewals, extensions, modifications, consolidations and replacements thereof, and to all advances made or hereafter to be made upon the security of such mortgages or trust deeds, unless the holders of such mortgages or trust deeds, or the lessors under such ground lease or underlying leases, require in writing that this Lease be superior thereto. Tenant covenants and agrees in the event any proceedings are brought for the foreclosure of any such mortgage, or if any ground or underlying lease is terminated, to attorn, without any deductions or set-offs whatsoever, to the purchaser upon any such foreclosure sale, or to the lessor of such ground or underlying lease, as the case may be, if so requested to do so by such purchaser or lessor and to recognize such purchaser or lessor as the lessor under this Lease. Tenant shall, within five (5) days of request by Landlord, execute such further commercially reasonable instruments or assurances as Landlord may reasonably deem necessary to evidence or confirm the subordination or superiority of this Lease to any such mortgages, trust deeds, ground leases or underlying leases and the non-disturbance of Tenants leasehold estate. Tenant waives the provisions of any current or future statute, rule or law which may give or purport to give Tenant any right or election to terminate or otherwise adversely affect this Lease and the obligations of the Tenant hereunder in the event of any foreclosure proceeding or sale.
21.2 Existing Agreement. Tenant hereby acknowledges that as of the date on which Landlord and Tenant execute this Lease there is a deed of trust encumbering, and in force against, the Project in favor of the lender(s) set forth on Exhibit E attached hereto (the Current Lender). Simultaneously with Tenants execution of this Lease, Tenant shall sign, notarize and deliver a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement in the form of Exhibit G attached hereto (SNDA) and Landlord shall promptly counter-sign the same and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Current Lender to counter-sign the same within sixty (60) days of the mutual execution of this Lease. If Landlord at any time during the Lease Term causes the Project to be encumbered by a new deed of trust or mortgage pursuant to which the beneficiary of such deed of trust or mortgage is a party or entity other than the Current Lender, and/or if any party which acquires, or otherwise succeeds to, Landlords interest in the Project (including, without limitation, any ground lessee) encumbers or places a lien against the Project with a mortgage, deed of trust or similar security instrument and the beneficiary thereof requires this Lease to be subordinated to such encumbrance or lien, Landlord or the successor of Landlord will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide to Tenant a commercially reasonable subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement in form reasonably acceptable to Landlord or such successor of Landlord, the subject beneficiary and Tenant. If said SNDA is required and agreed upon by the aforesaid parties, Landlord or the successor of Landlord, the subject beneficiary and Tenant shall cause any such subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement to be executed, acknowledged and recorded concurrently with, or as soon as practicable after, the execution and recordation of any such lien, deed of trust or mortgage. In addition to the foregoing, if Landlord enters into a ground lease with regard to the Project and such ground lessee requires this Lease to be subordinated to such ground lease, the ground lessee and ground lessor will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide to Tenant a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement in a commercially reasonable form reasonably acceptable to such ground lessee, ground lessor, any beneficiary of ground lessee, and to Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall not be in default under this Lease and shall have no liability to Tenant whatsoever if Landlord is unable to obtain and deliver to Tenant a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement executed by the Current Lender or any subsequent lender, beneficiary under deed of trust or ground lessor. Should Tenant have any requested changes to the SNDA attached to the initial draft of this Lease, Tenant covenants and agrees to pay all fees, costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with the negotiation or issuance of the SNDA.
22. Sale or Transfer by Landlord; Lease Non-Recourse.
22.1 Release of Landlord on Transfer. Landlord may at any time transfer, in whole or in part, its right, title and interest under this Lease and in the Building and the Project, or any portion thereof. If the original Landlord hereunder, or any successor to such original Landlord, transfers (by sale, assignment or otherwise) its right, title or interest in the Building, all liabilities and obligations of the original Landlord or such successor under this Lease accruing from and after such transfer shall terminate, the original Landlord or such successor shall automatically be released from such liabilities and obligations, and thereupon all such liabilities and obligations shall be binding upon the new owner. Tenant shall attorn to each such new owner.
22.2 Lease Nonrecourse to Landlord. Landlord shall in no event be personally liable under this Lease, and Tenant shall look solely to Landlords interest in the Project, for recovery of any damages for breach of this Lease by Landlord or on any judgment in connection therewith. None of the persons or entities comprising or representing Landlord (whether partners, members, shareholders, officers, directors, trustees, employees, beneficiaries, agents or otherwise) shall ever be personally liable under this Lease or liable for any such damages or judgment and Tenant shall have no right to effect any levy of execution against any assets of such persons or entities on account of any such liability or judgment. Any lien obtained by Tenant to enforce any such judgment, and any levy of execution thereon, shall be subject and subordinate to all encumbrances as specified in Article 21 above.
23. Estoppel Certificate.
23.1 Procedure and Content. From time to time, and within ten (10) days after written notice by Landlord, Tenant shall execute, acknowledge, and deliver to Landlord a commercially reasonable certificate certifying: (i) that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if there have been modifications, that this Lease is in full force and effect, as modified, and identifying each modification); (ii) the Commencement Date and Expiration Date; (iii) that Tenant has accepted the Premises (or the reasons Tenant has not accepted the Premises), and if Landlord has agreed to make any alterations or improvements to the Premises, that Landlord has properly completed such alterations or improvements (or the reasons why Landlord has not done so); (iv) the amount of the Base Rent and current Escalation Rent, if any, and the date to which such Rent has been paid; (v) that to Tenants actual knowledge, Tenant has not committed any event of default, except as to any events of default specified in the certificate, and whether there are, to Tenants actual knowledge, any existing defenses against the enforcement of Tenants obligations under this Lease; (vi) that to Tenants actual knowledge, no default of Landlord is claimed by Tenant, except as to any defaults specified in the certificate; and (vii) such other factual matters as may be reasonably requested by Landlord.
23.2 Effect of Certificate. Any such certificate may be relied upon by any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of any part or interest in the Building or the Project or any encumbrancer (as defined in Section 21.1) and, at Landlords request, Tenant shall deliver such certificate to Landlord and/or to any such entity and shall agree to such notice and cure provisions and such other matters as such entity may reasonably require. In addition, at Landlords request, Tenant shall provide to Landlord for delivery to any such entity such information, including financial information that may reasonably be requested by any such entity. Any such certificate shall constitute a waiver by Tenant of any claims Tenant may have in contravention to the information contained in such certificate and Tenant shall be estopped from asserting any such claim. If Tenant fails or refuses to give a certificate hereunder within the time period herein specified, then the information contained in such certificate as submitted by Landlord shall conclusively be deemed correct for all purposes and binding upon Tenant, but such failure or refusal shall be an immediate default by Tenant without the necessity of delivering any further notice to Tenant.
24. No Light, Air, or View Easement. Nothing contained in this Lease shall be deemed, either expressly or by implication, to create any easement for light and air or access to any view. Any diminution or shutting off of light, air or view to or from the Premises by any structure which
now exists or which may hereafter be erected, whether by Landlord or any other person, shall in no way affect this Lease or Tenants obligations hereunder, entitle Tenant to any reduction of Rent, or impose any liability on Landlord. Further, under no circumstances at any time during the Term shall any temporary darkening of any windows of the Premises or any temporary obstruction of the light or view therefrom by reason of any repairs, improvements, maintenance or cleaning in or about the Project in any way impose any liability upon Landlord or in any way reduce or diminish Tenants obligations under this Lease.
25. Holding Over. No holding over by Tenant shall operate to extend the Term. If Tenant remains in possession of the Premises after expiration or termination of this Lease, unless otherwise agreed by Landlord in writing, then (i) Tenant shall become a tenant at sufferance upon all the applicable terms and conditions of this Lease, except that Base Rent shall be increased to equal 150% of the Base Rent then in effect; and (ii) such holding over by Tenant shall constitute an immediate default by Tenant.
26. Security Deposit. Upon execution of this Lease, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the amount of the security deposit set forth in the Basic Lease Information as the Security Deposit under this Lease. The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as security for the performance by Tenant of all its obligations under this Lease. If Tenant fails to pay any Rent due hereunder, or otherwise commits a default with respect to any provision of this Lease, Landlord may use, apply or retain all or any portion of the Security Deposit for the payment of any such Rent or for the payment of any other amounts expended or incurred by Landlord by reason of Tenants default, or to compensate Landlord for any loss or damage which Landlord may incur thereby. Tenant waives (a) California Civil Code Section 1950.7 and any and all other laws, rules and regulations applicable to security deposits in the commercial context (Security Deposit Laws), and (b) any and all rights, duties and obligations either party may now or, in the future, will have relating to or arising from the Security Deposit Laws. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Security Deposit may be retained and applied by Landlord (1) to offset rent or additional rent which is unpaid either before or after termination of this Lease; (2) against other damages suffered by Landlord before or after termination of this Lease or to otherwise restore the Premises to a clean and safe condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted; and (3) those sums reasonably necessary to compensate Landlord for any other loss or damage, foreseeable or unforeseeable, caused by the act or omission of Tenant or any officer, employee, agent or invitee of Tenant, whether arising before or after. Exercise by Landlord of its rights hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of, or relieve Tenant from any liability for, any default. If all or any portion of the Security Deposit is used or applied by Landlord for such purposes, Tenant shall within ten (10) days after written demand therefor deposit cash with Landlord in an amount sufficient to restore the Security Deposit to its full amount. If Tenant performs all of Tenants obligations hereunder, the Security Deposit, or so much thereof as has not been used or applied by Landlord as permitted herein, shall be returned, without interest, to Tenant (or, at Landlords option, to the last assignee, if any, of Tenants interest under this Lease) within thirty (30) days after the later of (i) the date of expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, or (ii) vacation of the Premises by Tenant if the Premises has been left in the condition specified by this Lease. Upon termination of the original Landlords (or any successor owners) interest in the Premises, the original Landlord (or such successor) shall be released from further liability with respect to the Security Deposit upon the original Landlords (or such successors) delivery of Security Deposit to the successor landlord and compliance with California Civil Code Section 1950.7(d), or successor statute.
27. Waiver. Failure of Landlord to declare a default by Tenant upon occurrence thereof, or delay in taking any action in connection therewith, shall not waive such default, but Landlord shall have the right to declare such default at any time after its occurrence. To be effective, a waiver of any provision of this Lease, or any default, shall be in writing and signed by the waiving party. Any waiver hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver of subsequent performance of any such provision or subsequent defaults. The subsequent acceptance of Rent hereunder, or endorsement of any check by Landlord, shall not be deemed to constitute an accord and satisfaction or a waiver of any preceding default by Tenant, except as to the particular Rent so accepted, regardless of Landlords knowledge of the preceding default at the time of acceptance of the Rent. No course of conduct between Landlord and Tenant, and no acceptance of the keys to or possession of the Premises by Landlord before the Expiration Date shall constitute a waiver of any provision of this Lease or of any default, or operate as a surrender of this Lease.
28. Notices and Consents; Tenants Agent for Service. All notices required under this Lease and other information concerning this Lease (Communications) shall be personally delivered or sent by first class mail, postage prepaid, or by overnight courier. In addition, the Landlord may, in its sole discretion, send such Communications to the Tenant electronically, or permit the Tenant to send such Communications to the Landlord electronically, in the manner described in this Section. Such Communications sent by personal delivery, mail or overnight courier will be sent to the addresses on the signature page of this Lease, or to such other addresses as the Landlord and the Tenant may specify from time to time in writing. Communications shall be effective (i) if mailed, upon the earlier of receipt or five (5) days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, postage prepaid, or (ii) if hand-delivered, by courier or otherwise (including telegram, lettergram or mailgram), when delivered or when delivery is refused. Such Communications may be sent electronically by the Landlord to the Tenant (i) by transmitting the Communication to the electronic address provided by the Tenant or to such other electronic address as the Tenant may specify from time to time in writing, or (ii) by posting the Communication on a website and sending the Tenant a notice to the Tenants postal address or electronic address telling the Tenant that the Communication has been posted, its location, and providing instructions on how to view it, providing a summary with sufficient detail to inform Tenant of the nature and purpose of the Communication. Communications sent electronically to the Tenant will be effective when the Communication, or a notice advising of its posting to a website, is sent to the Tenants electronic address. Such Communications may be sent electronically to the Landlord by the Tenant by transmitting the Communication to an electronic address specified by the Landlord for the express purpose of receiving such Communications. Communications sent electronically to the Landlord will be effective when the Communication is sent to the Landlords electronic address. If Tenant is notified of the identity and address of Landlords mortgagee or ground or underlying lessor, Tenant shall give to such mortgagee or ground or underlying lessor written notice of any default by Landlord under the terms of this Lease by registered or certified mail, and such mortgagee or ground or underlying lessor shall be given a reasonable period of time to cure such default (but in no event less than sixty (60) days following receipt of such notice) prior to Tenants exercising any remedy available to Tenant.
29. Tenants Authority. Tenant, and each of the persons executing this Lease on behalf of Tenant, represent and warrant that (i) Tenant is a duly formed, authorized and existing limited liability company, corporation, partnership or trust (as the case may be), (ii) Tenant is qualified to do business in California, (iii) Tenant has the full right and authority to enter into this Lease and
to perform all of Tenants obligations hereunder, and (iv) each person signing on behalf of Tenant is authorized to do so. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, upon Landlords request, such certificates, resolutions, or other written assurances authorizing Tenants execution and delivery of this Lease, as reasonably requested by Landlord from time to time or at any time in order for Landlord to assess Tenants then authority and/or ability to meet its obligations under this Lease.
30. Automobile Parking.
30.1 Tenants Appurtenant Parking Rights. Subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Article 30, Landlord shall make available to Tenant, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, the number of parking spaces identified in the Basic Lease Information as the number of Minimum Spaces, which spaces shall be located in such parking areas located within the Project or the Covered Parking Area, as designated by Landlord. Such parking areas currently include the uncovered surface lot behind the Building (where parking is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week) or on the ground floor of the Covered Parking Area located across Christie Avenue (where parking is available only from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays); the uncovered surface lot and the Covered Parking Area are collectively referred to herein as the Parking Facility. Tenant shall at all times provide to Landlord, upon Landlords request, a list of all of the vehicle makes, colors and license plate numbers of all vehicles of Tenants employees. Tenants use of the parking spaces to be made available to Tenant shall be on a non-exclusive basis in common with other tenants in the Project; and parking in such spaces shall be on a first-come-first-served, unassigned, non-reserved basis; provided, however, six (6) of the Minimum Spaces shall be reserved visitor parking in the area shown on Exhibit A-1 attached hereto (Visitor Parking). The parking spaces to be made available to Tenant shall be in locations designated by Landlord (other than Visitor Parking, which shall be fixed during the Term in the locations set forth in Exhibit A-1); and Landlord reserves the right to designate different locations from time to time within the Parking Facility without any liability to Tenant and Tenant agrees that any such designation of a different location shall not give rise to any claims or offset against Landlord hereunder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Landlord may restrict certain portions of the Parking Facility for the exclusive use of one or more tenants of the Project (and their employees and agents) and may designate other areas in the Parking Facility to be used at large only by licensees, customers and invitees of tenants of the Project; and Landlord may in its sole and absolute discretion restrict or prohibit the use of the Parking Facility by any vehicles other than passenger automobiles such as full-sized vans or trucks. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall not exercise any of the foregoing rights in a manner which would permanently reduce the total number of parking spaces available to Tenant on a non-exclusive basis to a number less than the Minimum Spaces. Tenant shall not permit any vehicles belonging to Tenant or any of Tenants subtenants or any of their respective employees, agents, customers, contractors or invitees to be loaded, unloaded or parked in areas other than those designated by Landlord for such activities. In its use of the Parking Facilities Tenant shall comply (and shall cause each of the other Tenant Parties to comply) with any and all parking regulations and rules reasonably established from time to time by Landlord or Landlords parking operator provided such rules do not materially increase Tenants obligations under the Lease or materially decrease Tenants rights under the Lease. Landlord or Landlords parking operator shall have the right to cause to be removed any vehicles of Tenant or of any other Tenant Parties that are parked in violation of any of the provisions of this Article 30 or of the regulations and rules then established by Landlord, and to charge all of the costs incurred by Landlord in connection with such removal to Tenant and Tenant shall pay the amount of all such costs to Landlord as additional rent within fifteen (15) days after receipt of written demand from Landlord. Any such removal shall be without liability of any kind to Landlord or Landlords parking operator or their respective employees or agents.
30.2 Parking Fee. During the Term (as may be extended), Landlord shall impose no charge on Tenant for use of the Parking Facility.
30.3 Allocation of Risk. Landlord shall have no obligation to monitor the use of the Parking Facility. The use of the Parking Facility by the employees of Tenant and its subtenants shall be at the sole risk of Tenant, its subtenants and their respective employees. Except to the extent caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its agents, employees, or contractors, Landlord shall have no responsibility or liability for any injury or damage to any person or property by or as a result of the use of the Parking Facility by Tenant and its subtenants and their respective employees, whether by theft, collision, criminal activity, or otherwise; and Tenant hereby assumes, for itself, its subtenants and their respective employees (without the obligation to indemnify Landlord), all risks associated with any such occurrences in or about the Parking Facility.
30.4 No Assignment or Subletting of Parking. The parking rights provided to Tenant hereunder shall be personal to Tenant and shall not be assigned, sublet or used by any other entity without Landlords prior written consent, except in connection with an approved assignment or subletting of or under the Lease.
31. Tenant to Furnish Financial Information. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, within ten (10) days of Landlords written request, detailed financial information regarding Tenant and Tenants operation upon the Premises. Such information shall include income statements, balance sheets and other supporting statements or schedules as may be customarily prepared by Tenant in the operation of its business. Landlord agrees that so long as Tenant is not in default under this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period, said financial information shall be requested no more frequently than one (1) time in any twelve (12) month period. Tenants failure to deliver its financial information in accordance with this paragraph shall constitute a default under this Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, so long as Tenants common stock is publicly traded on a nationwide stock exchange domiciled in the United States, then the provisions of this Article 31 shall be inapplicable.
32. Credit Support.
32.1 [Intentionally Omitted].
32.2 Letter of Credit. Concurrent with Tenants execution and delivery of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord an original Letter of Credit (Letter of Credit) in the amount of the Letter of Credit Amount set forth in the Basic Lease Information and meeting the requirements set forth in Rider 1 attached hereto and made a part hereof.

33.5 Tenant may not assign, lease, rent, sublet or otherwise transfer any of its interest in the Equipment Area or the Generator Equipment except to a Permitted Transferee or together with the remainder of all of the Premises as more particularly set forth in Section 17 of this Lease.
33.6 Each of the other provisions of this Lease shall be applicable to the Equipment Area and the use of the Generator Equipment by Tenant, including without limitation, Sections 11, 12, 13, 14 and 16 of this Lease.
33.7 Anything to the contrary contained herein notwithstanding, if, during the Term, as such Term may be extended, Landlord, in its reasonable judgment, believes that the Generator Equipment poses a human health or environmental hazard that cannot be remediated or has not been remediated within ten (10) days after Tenant has been notified thereof, then Tenant shall immediately cease all operation of the Generator Equipment; provided that, subject to all Requirements and Landlords approval as to the location, Tenant may install a temporary backup generator during such period. To the best of Tenants knowledge, Tenant represents to Landlord that the use of the Generator Equipment will not pose a human health or environmental hazard.
