4.1    General.  Tenant shall pay Rent to Landlord in lawful United States currency.  All Base Rent and additional rent for Operating Costs shall be payable in monthly installments, in advance, beginning on the Commencement Date, and continuing on the first day of each and every calendar month thereafter during the Lease Term.  Unless otherwise expressly provided, all monetary obligations of Tenant to Landlord under this Lease, of any type or nature, other than Base Rent, shall be denominated as additional rent.  Except as otherwise provided, all additional rent payments  (other than Operating Costs which are due together with Base Rent) are due ten days after delivery of an invoice.  Tenant shall pay monthly to Landlord any sales, use, or other tax (excluding state and federal income tax) now or hereafter imposed on any Rent due under this Lease.  The term "Rent" when used in this Lease includes Base Rent and all forms of additional rent.  All Rent shall be paid to Landlord without demand, setoff, or deduction whatsoever, except as specifically provided in this Lease, at  Landlord's Address for Payments, or at such other place as Landlord designates in writing to Tenant.  Tenant's obligations to pay Rent are covenants independent of the Landlord's obligations under this Lease.
4.2    Base Rent Credit.  Provided that Tenant is not in default of this Lease beyond any applicable grace period at any time during the rent credit period, Tenant shall have a Rent credit in the amount of the Base Rent owed for the first three full calendar month of the Lease Term, which credit shall be applied to the installments of Base Rent due for those months.  Accordingly, if the Commencement Date occurs on a day other than the first day of the month, the prorated Rent for the first partial month of the Lease Term shall be due on the Commencement Date and the rent credit period shall commence on the first day of the first full calendar month of the Lease Term and shall expire on the last day of the third full calendar month of the Lease Term.  Tenant shall remain liable for all additional rent owed under this Lease during the rent credit period, such as, but not limited to, Tenant's Allocated Share of Operating Costs.
5.1    General.  Tenant shall pay to Landlord its Allocated Share of Operating Costs in accordance with the terms and provisions of this article and based on the following.
5.2    Defined Terms.  The following terms shall have the following definitions:
5.2.1    "Real Estate Taxes" shall mean the total of all taxes, assessments, and other charges by any governmental or quasi-governmental authority that are assessed, levied, or in any manner imposed on the Project, including all charges on the tax bills for the Project, real and personal property taxes, special district taxes and assessments, franchise taxes, solid waste assessments, non-ad valorem assessments or charges, and all payments in lieu of taxes under applicable agreements.  If a tax shall be levied against Landlord in substitution in whole or in part for the Real Estate Taxes or otherwise as a result of the ownership of the Project, then the other tax shall be deemed to be included within the definition of "Real Estate Taxes".  "Real Estate Taxes" also includes all costs incurred by Landlord in contesting the amount of the assessment of the Project made for Real Estate Tax purposes, including attorneys', consultants', and appraisers' fees.
5.2.2    "Operating Costs" shall mean the total of all of the costs incurred by Landlord relating to the ownership, operation, and maintenance of the Project and the services provided tenants in the Project.  By way of explanation and clarification, but not by way of limitation, Operating Costs will include the costs and expenses incurred for the following: Real Estate Taxes; pest control; trash and garbage removal (including dumpster rental); porter and matron service; security; Common Areas decorations; repairs, maintenance, and alteration of building systems, Common Areas, and other portions of the Project to be maintained by Landlord; amounts paid under easements or other recorded agreements affecting the Project, including assessments by property owners' or condominium associations; repairs, maintenance, replacements, and improvements for the continued operation of the Building as a first-class building; improvements required by law; improvements in security systems; materials, tools, supplies, and equipment to enable Landlord to supply services that Landlord would otherwise have obtained from a third party; expenditures designed to result in savings or reductions in Operating Costs; landscaping, including fertilization and irrigation supply, parking area maintenance and supply; property management fees; an on-site management office; all utilities serving the Project and not separately billed to or reimbursed by any tenant of the Project; cleaning, window washing, and janitorial services; all insurance customarily carried by owners of comparable buildings or required by any mortgagee of the Building; supplies; service and maintenance contracts for the Project, including life-safety/fire system monitoring; wages, salaries, and other benefits and costs of employees of the Landlord up to and including the property and Regional property managers (including a pro rata share only of the wages and benefits of employees who are employed at more than one building, which pro rata share shall be determined by Landlord and shall be based on Landlord's estimate of the percentage of time spent by the employees at the Project); legal, accounting, and administrative costs; and uniforms and working clothes for employees and the cleaning of them.  Landlord may contract for the performance of some or all of the management and maintenance functions generally described in this section with entities that are affiliated with Landlord.

5.3    Variable Operating Costs.  If during any year the entire Building is not occupied or Landlord is not furnishing utilities or services to all of the premises in the Building, then the Variable Operating Costs for such year shall be "grossed up" (using reasonable projections and assumptions as determined by Landlord) to the amounts that would apply if the entire Building was completely occupied and all of the premises in the Building were provided with the applicable utilities or services.  "Variable Operating Costs" are Operating Costs that are variable with the level of occupancy of the Building (such as janitorial services, utilities, refuse and waste disposal, and management fees).
5.4     Payment.  Landlord shall reasonably estimate the Operating Costs that will be payable for each calendar year.  Tenant shall pay one-twelfth of its Allocated Share of the estimated Operating Costs monthly in advance, together with the payment of Base Rent.  Should any assumptions used in creating a budget change, Landlord may adjust the estimated monthly Operating Costs payments to be made by Tenant by notice to Tenant.  After the conclusion of each calendar year, Landlord shall furnish Tenant a detailed statement of the actual Operating Costs for the year; and an adjustment shall be made between Landlord and Tenant with payment to or repayment by Landlord, as the case may require.  Tenant waives and releases any and all objections or claims relating to Operating Costs for any calendar year unless, within 30 days after Landlord provides Tenant with the annual statement of the actual Operating Costs for the calendar year, Tenant provides Landlord notice that it disputes the statement and specifies the matters disputed.  If Tenant disputes the statement then, Tenant shall continue to pay the Rent in question to Landlord in the amount provided in the disputed statement pending resolution of the dispute.
5.5    Alternate Computation.  Instead of including in Operating Costs certain costs, Landlord may bill Tenant and Tenant shall pay for those costs in any one or a combination of the following manners:  (a) direct charges for services provided for the exclusive benefit of the Premises that are subject to quantification; (b) based on a formula that takes into account the relative intensity or quantity of use of utilities or services by Tenant and all other recipients of the utilities or services, as reasonably determined by Landlord; or (c) pro rata based on the ratio that the Rentable Area of the Premises bears to the total rentable area of the tenant premises within the Building that are benefited by such costs.
6.1    General.  Tenant may not transfer any of its rights under this Lease, voluntarily or involuntarily, whether by merger, consolidation, dissolution, operation of law, or any other manner (any of which, a "transfer"), without Landlord's consent, which may be withheld in Landlord's sole and absolute discretion.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Tenant may not sublease, assign, mortgage, encumber, permit the transfer of direct or indirect ownership or control of the business entity comprising Tenant, or permit any portion of the Premises to be occupied by third parties.  Any transfer by Tenant in violation of this article shall, at Landlord's option, be void.  If Landlord assigns this Lease to a successor who expressly assumes the obligations of Landlord, Landlord shall be released from its obligations.
6.2    UBTI Restrictions.  Without limiting Landlord's right to withhold its consent to any transfer by Tenant, and regardless of whether Landlord shall have consented to any such transfer, neither Tenant nor any other person having an interest in the possession, use, or occupancy of any portion of the Premises shall enter into any lease, sublease, license, concession, assignment, or other transfer or agreement for possession, use, or occupancy of all or any portion of the Premises which provides for rental or other payment for such use, occupancy, or utilization based, in whole or in part, on the net income or profits derived by any person or entity from the space so leased, used, or occupied, and any such purported lease, sublease, license, concession, assignment, or other transfer or agreement shall be absolutely void and ineffective as a conveyance of any right or interest in the Premises.  There shall be no deduction from the rental payable under any sublease or other transfer nor from the amount of the rental passed on to any person or entity, for any expenses or costs related in any way to the subleasing or transfer of such space.
7.1    Tenant's Insurance.  Tenant shall obtain and keep in full force and effect the following insurance coverages: (i) commercial general liability insurance, including bodily injury, property damage, premises (including the use or occupancy of the Premises, the Building, and all areas appurtenant to the Premises and the Building, including any parking areas and areas outside the Premises that Tenant is authorized to use temporarily), operations, independent contractors, personal and advertising injury, and contractual liability, on an occurrence basis, on the then most current Insurance Services Office ("ISO") form or its equivalent in the minimum amounts of $1 million per occurrence, $2 million general aggregate, including Designated Location(s) General Aggregate Limit; (ii) commercial automobile liability insurance, on an occurrence basis on the then most current ISO form, including coverage for owned, non-owned, leased, and hired automobiles, in the minimum amount of $1 million combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage; (iii) excess liability insurance in the minimum amount of $5 million with the same inception date as the underlying policies (including general, auto and employer's liability), and which shall be excess over and no less broad than all coverages described above; (iv) Special Causes of Loss form property insurance (ISO CP 10 30 or equivalent in effect in the State in which the Premises are located), in an amount adequate to cover 100% of the replacement costs, without co-insurance, of all of Tenant's property at the Premises; (v) worker's compensation insurance, including statutory limits, and employer's liability insurance with minimum amounts of $1 million each accident for bodily injury by accident, $1 million each employee for bodily injury by disease, and $1 million policy limit for bodily injury by disease; (vi) business income and extra expense insurance covering the risks to be insured by the property insurance described above, on an actual loss sustained basis, but in all events in an amount sufficient to prevent Tenant from being a co-insurer of any loss covered under the applicable policy or policies, including income coverage for a minimum 12 month period; and (vii) such other insurance as may be reasonably required by Landlord. Tenant's insurance shall provide primary and non-contributory coverage to the Landlord Parties when any policy issued to any Landlord Parties provides duplicate or similar coverage, and in such circumstance, Landlord's policy will be excess over Tenant's policy.  None of Tenant's policies may have any deductibles, or any self-insured retentions.

7.2    Insurance Requirements.  All insurance policies shall be written with insurance companies and shall have coverage limits acceptable to Landlord and having a policyholder rating of at least "A-" and a financial size category of at least "Class XII" as rated in the most recent edition of "Best's Key Rating Guide" for insurance companies.  The commercial general liability, automobile liability, and excess liability insurance policies shall name the Landlord Parties as additional insureds (on ISO CG 20 11 01 96 or equivalent for the commercial general liability policy) and require prior notice of cancellation to be delivered in writing to Landlord within the time period applicable to the first named insured.  The commercial general liability and excess liability policies shall include an unmodified Separation of Insureds provision.  The following exclusions/limitations or their equivalent(s) are prohibited:  Contractual Liability Limitation CG 21 39; Amendment of Insured Contract Definition  CG 24 26; any endorsement modifying the Employer's Liability exclusion or deleting the exception to it; any "Insured vs. Insured" exclusion except Named Insured vs. Named Insured; and any Punitive, Exemplary, or Multiplied Damages exclusion.  Tenant shall furnish evidence that it maintains all insurance coverages required under this Lease (ACORD 25 for liability insurance and the ACORD 28 for Commercial Property Insurance, with copies of declaration pages for each required policy) at least ten days before entering the Premises for any reason.  The ACORD 25 Form Certificate of Insurance for the liability insurance policy shall specify the policy form number and edition date and shall have attached to it a copy of the additional insureds endorsement listing the Landlord Parties.  Coverage amounts for the liability insurance may be increased periodically in accordance with industry standards for similar properties.
7.3    Waiver of Subrogation.  Except as otherwise provided in the penultimate sentence of this section, Landlord and Tenant each expressly, knowingly, and voluntarily waive and release their respective rights of recovery that they may have against the other or the other's Parties and against every other tenant in the Project who shall have executed a waiver similar to this one for loss or damage to its property, and property of third parties in the care, custody, and control of Tenant, and loss of business (specifically including loss of Rent by Landlord and business interruption by Tenant) directly or by way of subrogation or otherwise as a result of the acts or omissions of the other party or the other party's Parties (specifically including the negligence of either party or its Parties and the intentional misconduct of the Parties of either party), to the extent any such claims are covered by the property, rental income, business income, or extra expense insurance carried or required to be carried under the terms of this Lease (whether or not actually carried by either party), or other property insurance that either party may carry at the time of an occurrence or under a so-called "special perils" or "special form causes of loss" property insurance policy or under a so-called "contents" insurance policy (whether or not actually carried).  Tenant assumes all risk of damage to and loss of Tenant's property within the Building, including any loss or damage caused by water leakage, fire, windstorm, explosion, theft, act of any other tenant, or from any other cause.  Landlord and Tenant shall each, on or before the earlier of the Commencement Date or the date on which Tenant first enters the Premises for any purpose, obtain and keep in full force and effect at all times thereafter a waiver of subrogation from its insurer concerning the commercial general liability, commercial automobile liability, workers' compensation, employer's liability, property, rental income, and business interruption insurance maintained by it for the Project and the property located in the Premises.  The release by Landlord in favor of Tenant shall not apply, and shall be void and of no force or effect, if Landlord's insurance coverage is denied, invalidated, or nullified by reason of any act or failure to act of any of the Tenant Parties or Tenant's invitees.  This section shall control over any other provisions of this Lease in conflict with it and shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.
8.    DEFAULT.
8.1    Events of Default.  Each of the following shall be an event of default under this Lease: (a) Tenant fails to make any payment of Rent when due;  (b) Tenant becomes bankrupt or insolvent or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or takes the benefit of any insolvency act, or if any debtor proceedings are taken by or against Tenant; (c) Tenant abandons the Premises; (d) Tenant transfers this Lease in violation of the Assignment or Subletting article; (e) Tenant fails to deliver an estoppel certificate or subordination agreement or maintain required insurance coverages within the time periods required by this Lease; (f) Tenant does not comply with its obligations to vacate the Premises under the Relocation of Tenant or End of Term articles of this Lease; or (g) Tenant fails to perform any other obligation under this Lease.
8.2    Remedies.  If Tenant defaults, in addition to all remedies provided by law, Landlord may declare the entire balance of all forms of Rent due under this Lease for the remainder of the Lease Term to be forthwith due and payable and may collect the then present value of the Rents (calculated using a discount rate equal to the discount rate of the branch of the Federal Reserve Bank closest to the Premises in effect as of the date of the default).  If this Lease is rejected in any bankruptcy proceeding, Rent for the entire month in which the rejection occurs shall be due and payable in full and shall not be prorated.

8.3    Landlord's Right to Perform.  If Tenant defaults, Landlord may, but shall have no obligation to, perform the obligations of Tenant, and if Landlord, in doing so, makes any expenditures or incurs any obligation for the payment of money, including reasonable attorneys' fees, the sums so paid or obligations incurred shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon receipt of a bill or statement to Tenant therefor.
8.4    Late Charges, Interest, and Bad Checks.  If any payment due Landlord shall not be paid when due, Tenant shall pay, in addition to the payment then due, an administrative charge equal to the greater of (a) 5% of the past due payment; or (b) $250.  All payments due Landlord shall bear interest at the lesser of: (a) 18% per annum, or (b) the highest rate of interest permitted to be charged by applicable law, accruing from the date the obligation arose through the date payment is actually received by Landlord, including after the date of any judgment against Tenant.  If any check given to Landlord for any payment is dishonored for any reason whatsoever not attributable to Landlord, in addition to all other remedies available to Landlord, upon demand, Tenant will reimburse Landlord for all insufficient funds, bank, or returned check fees, plus an administrative fee not to exceed the maximum amount prescribed by law.  In addition, Landlord may require all future payments from Tenant to be made by cashier's check from a local bank, ACH payments, or by Federal Reserve wire transfer to Landlord's account.
8.5    Limitations.  None of the Landlord Parties shall ever have any personal liability to Tenant.  No person holding Landlord's interest shall have any liability after such person ceases to hold such interest, except for any liability accruing while such person held such interest.  TENANT SHALL LOOK SOLELY TO LANDLORD'S ESTATE AND INTEREST IN THE BUILDING FOR THE SATISFACTION OF ANY CLAIMS BY TENANT OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER ARISING FROM THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PARTIES OR ANY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS THEY MAY HAVE RELATING TO THE PROJECT, THIS LEASE, OR ANYTHING RELATED TO EITHER, AND NO OTHER ASSETS OF LANDLORD SHALL BE SUBJECT TO LEVY, EXECUTION, OR OTHER ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURE FOR THE SATISFACTION OF TENANT'S RIGHTS OR REMEDIES, OR ANY OTHER LIABILITY OF LANDLORD TO TENANT OF WHATEVER KIND OR NATURE. No act or omission of Landlord or its agents shall constitute an actual or constructive eviction of Tenant or a default by Landlord as to any of its obligations under this Lease unless Landlord shall have first received written notice from Tenant of the claimed default and shall have failed to cure it after having been afforded reasonable time in which to do so, which in no event shall be less than 30 days.  Further, Tenant waives any claims against Landlord that Tenant does not make in writing within 30 days of the onset of the cause of such claim.  Landlord and Tenant each waive all rights they may have (other than rights for defaults under the Estoppel Certificate, Subordination, and End of Term articles) to consequential damages, lost profits, punitive damages, or special damages of any kind.
8.6    Presumption of Abandonment.  It shall be conclusively presumed that Tenant has abandoned the Premises if Tenant fails to keep the Premises open for business during regular business hours for ten consecutive days while in monetary default.  Any grace periods set forth in this article shall not apply to the application of this presumption.
9.    ALTERATIONS.  "Alterations" shall mean any alteration, addition, or improvement in or on or to the Premises of any kind or nature, including any improvements made before Tenant's occupancy of the Premises.  Tenant shall make no Alterations without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent may be withheld or conditioned in Landlord's sole discretion.  However, Landlord will not unreasonably withhold or delay consent to non-structural interior Alterations, provided that they do not involve demolition of improvements, affect utility services or Building systems, are not visible from outside the Premises, do not affect Landlord's insurance coverages for the Building, and do not require other alterations, additions, or improvements to areas outside the Premises.  Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, on demand, for the actual out-of-pocket costs for the services of any third party employed by Landlord to review or prepare any Alteration-related plan or other document for which Landlord's consent or approval is required.  Landlord, or its agent or contractor, may supervise the performance of any Alterations, and, if so, Tenant shall pay to Landlord an amount equal to 5% of the cost of the work, as a supervisory fee.  Except as expressly set forth in this Lease, Landlord has made no representation or promise as to the condition of the Premises, Landlord shall not perform any alterations, additions, or improvements to make the Premises suitable and ready for occupancy and use by Tenant, and Tenant shall accept possession of the Premises in its then "as-is", "where-is" condition, without representation or warranty of any kind by Landlord.  Except for work to be performed by Landlord, before any Alterations are undertaken by or on behalf of Tenant, Tenant shall obtain Landlord's approval of all contractors performing such Alterations, and shall deliver to Landlord any governmental permit required for the Alterations and shall require any contractor performing work on the Premises to obtain and maintain, at no expense to Landlord, workers' compensation and employer's liability insurance, builder's risk insurance in the amount of the replacement cost of the applicable Alterations (or such other amount reasonably required by Landlord), commercial general liability insurance, written on an occurrence basis with minimum limits of $2 million per occurrence limit, $2 million general aggregate limit, $2 million personal and advertising limit, and $2 million products/completed operations limit (including contractual liability, broad form property damage and contractor's protective liability coverage); commercial automobile liability insurance, on an occurrence basis on the then most current ISO form, including coverage for owned, non-owned, leased, and hired automobiles, in the minimum amount of $1 million combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage; and excess liability insurance in the minimum amount of $5 million.  Contractor's insurance shall contain an endorsement insuring the Landlord Parties as additional insureds and shall be primary and non-contributory over any other coverage available to the Landlord. The Contractor's insurance shall also comply with the requirement of the Insurance article.  All Alterations by Tenant shall also comply with Landlord's rules and requirements for contractors performing work in the Project.

10.    LIENS.   In accordance with the applicable provisions of the Florida Mechanic's Lien Law and specifically Florida Statutes, Section 713.10, no interest of Landlord whether personally or in the Premises, or in the underlying land or Building of which the Premises are a part or the leasehold interest aforesaid shall be subject to liens for improvements made by Tenant or caused to be made by Tenant hereunder.  Further, Tenant acknowledges that Tenant, with respect to improvements or alterations made by Tenant or caused to be made by Tenant hereunder, shall promptly notify the contractor making such improvements to the Premises of this provision exculpating Landlord's liability for such liens.  Tenant represents to Landlord that any improvements that might be made by Tenant to the Premises are not required to be made under the terms of this Lease and that any improvements which may be made by Tenant do not constitute the "pith of the lease" under applicable Florida case law.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any mechanic's lien or other lien, attachment, judgment, execution, writ, charge or encumbrance is filed against the Building or the Premises or this leasehold, or any alterations, fixtures or improvements therein or thereto, as a result of any work action or inaction done by or at the direction of Tenant or any of Tenant's Agents, Tenant will discharge same of record within ten (10) days after the filing thereof, failing which Tenant will be in default under this Lease.  In such event, without waiving Tenant's default, Landlord, in addition to all other available rights and remedies, without further notice, may discharge the same of record by payment, bonding or otherwise, as Landlord may elect, and upon request Tenant will reimburse Landlord for all costs and expenses so incurred by Landlord plus interest thereon at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per annum
11.    ACCESS TO PREMISES.  Landlord and persons authorized by Landlord shall have the right, at all reasonable times, to enter and inspect the Premises and to make repairs and alterations Landlord deems necessary, with reasonable prior notice (which may be by telephone or e-mail), except in cases of emergency and for provision of janitorial services, when no notice shall be required.
12.    COMMON AREAS.  The "Common Areas" of the Project include such areas and facilities as delivery facilities, walkways, landscaped and planted areas, and parking facilities and are those areas designated by Landlord for the general use in common of occupants of the Project, including Tenant.  The Common Areas shall at all times be subject to the exclusive control and management of Landlord.  Landlord may grant third parties specific rights concerning portions of the Common Areas.  Landlord may increase, reduce, improve, or otherwise alter the Common Areas, otherwise make improvements, alterations, or additions to the Project, and change the name or number by which the Building or Project is known.  Landlord may also temporarily close the Common Areas to make repairs or improvements.  In addition, Landlord may temporarily close the Building or Project and preclude access to the Premises in the event of casualty, governmental requirements, the threat of an emergency such as a hurricane or other act of God, or if Landlord otherwise reasonably deems it necessary in order to prevent damage or injury to person or property.  This Lease does not create, nor will Tenant have any express or implied easement for, or other rights to, air, light, or view over, from, or about the Project.
13.    SECURITY INTEREST.  As security for Tenant's obligations under this Lease, Tenant grants to Landlord a security interest in this Lease and all property of Tenant now or hereafter placed in or upon the Premises including, all fixtures, furniture, inventory, machinery, equipment, merchandise, furnishings, and other articles of personal property, and all insurance proceeds of or relating to Tenant's property and all accessions and additions to, substitutions for, and replacements, products, and proceeds of the Tenant's property.  This Lease constitutes a security agreement under the Florida Uniform Commercial Code. This security interest shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.

14.    CASUALTY DAMAGE.  If: (a) the Building or Project or a material part of the Common Areas shall be so damaged that substantial alteration or reconstruction shall, in Landlord's opinion, be required  (whether or not the Premises shall have been damaged by the casualty); or (b) Landlord is not permitted to rebuild the Building or Project or a material part of the Common Areas in substantially the same form as it existed before the damage; or (c) the Premises shall be materially damaged by casualty during the last two years of the Lease Term; or (d) any mortgagee requires that the insurance proceeds be applied to the payment of the mortgage debt; or (e) the damage is not fully covered by insurance maintained by Landlord; then Landlord may, within 90 days after the casualty, give notice to Tenant of Landlord's election to terminate this Lease, and the balance of the Lease Term shall automatically expire on the fifth day after the notice is delivered.  If Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease, Landlord shall proceed with reasonable diligence to restore the Building and the Premises to substantially the same condition they were in immediately before the casualty.  However, Landlord shall not be required to restore any unleased premises in the Building or any portion of Tenant's property.  Rent shall abate in proportion to the portion of the Premises not usable by Tenant as a result of any casualty resulting in damage to the Building which is covered by insurance carried or required to be carried by Landlord under this Lease, as of the date on which the Premises becomes unusable.  Landlord shall not otherwise be liable to Tenant for any delay in restoring the Premises or any inconvenience or annoyance to Tenant or injury to Tenant's business resulting in any way from the damage or the repairs, Tenant's sole remedy being the right to an abatement of Rent.
15.    CONDEMNATION.  If the whole or any substantial part of the Premises shall be condemned by eminent domain or acquired by private purchase in lieu of condemnation, this Lease shall terminate on the date on which possession of the Premises is delivered to the condemning authority and Rent shall be apportioned and paid to that date.  If no portion of the Premises is taken but a substantial portion of the Building is taken, at Landlord's option, this Lease shall terminate on the date on which possession of such portion of the Building is delivered to the condemning authority and Rent shall be apportioned and paid to that date.  Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord, and assigns to Landlord any claims it may have otherwise had, for the value of any unexpired portion of the Lease Term, or any Alterations.  Tenant shall not be entitled to any part of the condemnation award or private purchase price.  If this Lease is not terminated as provided above, Rent shall abate in proportion to the portion of the Premises condemned.
  Landlord shall repair and maintain in good order and condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted, the Common Areas, mechanical and equipment rooms, the roof of the Building, the exterior walls of the Building, the exterior windows of the Building, the structural portions of the Building, the elevators, and the electrical, plumbing, mechanical, fire protection, life safety, and HVAC systems servicing the Building.  However, unless the Waiver of Subrogation section applies, Tenant shall pay the cost of any such repairs or maintenance resulting from acts or omissions of the Tenant Parties.  Additionally, Landlord shall replace the Building standard fluorescent light tubes in the Premises.  Tenant waives the provisions of any law, or any right Tenant may have under common law, permitting Tenant to make repairs at Landlord's expense or to withhold Rent or terminate this Lease based on any alleged failure of Landlord to make repairs.  All costs associated with the repair and maintenance obligations of Landlord under this article shall be included in and constitute Operating Costs.  Except to the extent Landlord is obligated to repair and maintain the Premises as provided above, Tenant shall, at its sole cost, repair, replace, and maintain the Premises (including the walls, ceilings, and floors in the Premises, and any specialized or supplemental electrical, lighting, plumbing, mechanical, fire protection, life safety and HVAC systems exclusively for Tenant's use) in a clean, attractive, first-class condition.  All replacements shall be of equal quality and class to the original items replaced.  Tenant shall not commit or allow to be committed any waste on any portion of the Premises.  Prior to performing any such repair obligation, Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord describing the necessary maintenance or repair.  Upon receipt of such notice, Landlord may elect either to perform any of the maintenance or repair obligations specified in such notice, or require that Tenant perform such obligations by using contractors approved by Landlord, all at Tenant's expense.  All work shall be performed in accordance with Landlord's rules and procedures.

17.    ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES.  From time to time, Tenant, on not less than five days' prior notice, shall execute and deliver to Landlord an estoppel certificate in the form attached as EXHIBIT "F" to this Lease, or if otherwise requested by Landlord, a form generally consistent with the requirements of institutional lenders and prospective purchasers and certified to all or any of Landlord, any mortgagee or prospective mortgagee, or prospective purchaser of the Building.
18.    SUBORDINATION.  This Lease is and shall be subject and subordinate to all mortgages and ground leases that may now or hereafter affect the Building, and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements, and extensions of the mortgages and leases.   This article shall be self-operative and no further instrument of subordination shall be necessary.  However, in confirmation of this subordination, Tenant shall execute any agreement that Landlord may request within ten days after receipt from Landlord.  If any ground or underlying lease is terminated, or if the interest of Landlord under this Lease is transferred by reason of or assigned in lieu of foreclosure or other proceedings for enforcement of any mortgage, or if the holder of any mortgage acquires a lease in substitution for the mortgage, or if this Lease is terminated by termination of any lease or by foreclosure of any mortgage to which this Lease is or may be subordinate, then Tenant will, at the option to be exercised in writing by the landlord under any ground or underlying lease or the purchaser, assignee, or tenant, as the case may be (a) attorn to it and will perform for its benefit all the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease on Tenant's part to be performed with the same force and effect as if the landlord or the purchaser, assignee, or tenant were the landlord originally named in this Lease, or (b) enter into a new lease with the landlord or the purchaser, assignee, or tenant for the remainder of the Lease Term and otherwise on the same terms, conditions, and rents as provided in this Lease.

19.    INDEMNIFICATION.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, Tenant shall indemnify, defend, and save harmless the Landlord Parties from and against any and all liability (including reasonable attorneys' fees) resulting from claims by third parties in connection with the Premises.  Similarly, to the fullest extent permitted by law, Landlord shall indemnify, defend, and save harmless the Tenant Parties from and against any and all liability (including reasonable attorneys' fees) resulting from claims by third parties in connection with the Common Areas to the same extent that Tenant would have been covered had it been named as an additional insured on the commercial general liability insurance policy carried by Landlord for the Project, provided such liability is occasioned by the wrongful act or omission of any of the Landlord Parties.  It is intended that the indemnitor indemnify the indemnitee, and its Parties against the consequences of their own negligence or fault, even when the indemnitee or its Parties is jointly, comparatively, contributively, or concurrently negligent with the indemnitor, and even though any such claim, cause of action, or suit is based upon or alleged to be based upon the strict liability of the indemnitee or its Parties, and the indemnitor waives and releases all claims against the indemnitee and its Parties for any claim covered by the indemnity obligations of the indemnitor under this article.  This Indemnification article shall not be construed to restrict, limit, or modify either party's insurance obligations under this Lease, nor shall Landlord's or Tenant's indemnification obligations under this article be limited by the minimum amounts of insurance carried or required to be carried under the terms of this Lease by either party.  Either party's compliance with the insurance requirements under this Lease shall not restrict, limit, or modify that party's obligations under this Indemnification article. Notwithstanding anything in this article to the contrary, if and to the extent that any loss occasioned by any of the events described in this article exceeds the greater of the coverage or amount of insurance required to be carried by the indemnitor or the coverage or amount of insurance actually carried by the indemnitor, or results from any event not required to be insured against and not actually insured against, the party at fault shall pay the amount not actually covered. These indemnification provisions shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.
20.    NO WAIVER.  The failure of a party to insist on the strict performance of any provision of this Lease or to exercise any remedy for any default shall not be construed as a waiver.  The waiver of any noncompliance with this Lease shall not prevent subsequent similar noncompliance from being a default.  No waiver shall be effective unless expressed in writing and signed by the waiving party.  No notice to or demand on a party shall of itself entitle the party to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.  The receipt by Landlord of any Rent after default on the part of Tenant (whether the Rent is due before or after the default) shall not excuse any delays as to future Rent payments and shall not be deemed to operate as a waiver of any then-existing default by Tenant or of the right of Landlord to pursue any available remedies.  No payment by Tenant, or receipt by Landlord, of a lesser amount than the Rent actually owed under the terms of this Lease shall be deemed to be anything other than a payment on account of the earliest stipulated Rent due.  No endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment of Rent will be deemed an accord and satisfaction.  Landlord may accept the check or payment without prejudice to Landlord's right to recover the balance of the Rent or to pursue any other remedy.  It is the intention of the parties that this article will modify the common law rules of waiver and estoppel and the provisions of any statute that might dictate a contrary result.
21.    SERVICES AND UTILITIES.  Landlord shall furnish the following services:  (a) air conditioning and heating in season Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Legal Holidays excluded; at other times, air conditioning and heating will be furnished at the then Building standard charge (payable by Tenant to Landlord on written demand by Landlord) and on then Building standard terms relating to advance notice, minimum hours, minimum zones, and other matters; (b) janitorial and general cleaning service on Business Days; (c) passenger elevator service from the Building's lobby to the Premises; (d) common restroom facilities and necessary lavatory supplies, including cold running water; and (e) electricity for the purposes of lighting and general office equipment use in amounts consistent with Building standard electrical capacities for the Premises (excluding electricity for separately metered equipment exclusively serving the Premises, such as supplemental HVAC units, the costs for which shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon receipt of an invoice from Landlord).  Landlord shall have the right to select the Building's electric service provider and to switch providers at any time and to increase the normal business hours.  Tenant's use of electrical, HVAC or other services furnished by Landlord shall not exceed, either in voltage, rated capacity, use, or overall load, that which Landlord deems to be standard for the Building.  Tenant shall pay all costs associated with any such additional utility or service usage, including the installation of separate meters.  In no event shall Landlord be liable for damages resulting from the failure to furnish any service, and any interruption or failure shall in no manner entitle Tenant to any remedies including abatement of Rent. The HVAC air distribution system and control system will remain under the control of Landlord, who will regulate the systems' setting and adjustment.  At Landlord's option, Landlord may secure HVAC controls (thermostats) in lockable metal boxes to regulate the efficiency and use of the system.  Tenant agrees that Landlord will have complete control over the setting and regulation of all air distribution, vents, vanes and dampers so as to provide comfortable working conditions. If at any time during the Lease Term the Project has any type of access control system for the Parking Areas or the Building, Landlord shall furnish Tenant, at Landlord's cost and expense, a number of access cards equal to the number of occupants of the Premises at the time such system is installed.  Any replacement cards shall be purchased from Landlord by Tenant at the then Building standard charge.

22.1    The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord as security for Tenant's full and faithful performance of this Lease including the payment of Rent.  Tenant grants Landlord a security interest in the Security Deposit.  The Security Deposit may be commingled with other funds of Landlord and Landlord shall have no liability for payment of any interest on the Security Deposit.  Landlord may apply the Security Deposit to the extent required to cure any default by Tenant.  If Landlord so applies the Security Deposit, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord the amount necessary to replenish the Security Deposit to its original sum within five days after notice from Landlord.  The Security Deposit shall not be deemed an advance payment of Rent or a measure of damages for any default by Tenant, nor shall it be a defense to any action that Landlord may bring against Tenant.  If Tenant fully and faithfully complies with all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease, any part of the Security Deposit not used or retained by Landlord under the terms of this Lease shall be returned to Tenant within 45 days after the expiration of the Lease Term and after Tenant's delivery of possession of the Premises to Landlord.  However, if at the expiration of the Lease Term there are any amounts that may be due from Tenant that have not yet been finally determined (for example, Rent for Operating Costs for the year in which the Lease Term expires) then Landlord may estimate the amounts that will be owed and deduct them from the Security Deposit.  When the actual amounts are finally determined, an adjustment shall be made between Landlord and Tenant with payment to or repayment by Landlord, as the circumstance may require, to the end that Landlord shall receive the entire amount actually owed by Tenant and Tenant shall receive reimbursement for any overpayments.
22.2    If (i) Tenant fully and faithfully complies with all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease and has not been in default during the period following the Commencement Date, (ii) Tenant's financial condition is equal to or better than its financial condition on the Date of this Lease, (iii) Tenant has been current in all of its monetary and other obligations under this Lease for the period following the Commencement Date, and (iv) Landlord has not drawn on the Security Deposit for a default by Tenant, then in each instance, upon Tenant's written request at least three (3) months, but not earlier than six (6) months, prior to each date on which Tenant is requesting that a portion of the Security Deposit be released, the amount of the Security Deposit shall be reduced by an amount equal to 1/5th of the Security Deposit on the 1st day of each of the 16th and 28th full calendar months of the Lease Term and Tenant shall have a Rent credit in the amount of 1/5th of the Security Deposit for each of the 16th and 28th full calendar months of the Lease Term, which credit shall be applied to the installments of Base Rent due for those months; provided that, in no event shall the remaining Security Deposit amount be less than $28,156.28 at the time of the first such reduction and no less than $21,117.21 at the time of the second such reduction.
23.    GOVERNMENTAL REGULATIONS.  Tenant shall promptly comply with all laws, codes, and ordinances of governmental authorities, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the "ADA") and all similar present or future laws relating to the Premises, including the performance of any work to the Common Areas required because of Tenant's specific use (as opposed to general office use) of the Premises or Alterations to the Premises made by Tenant.
24.    SIGNS.  No signage shall be placed by Tenant on any portion of the Project. However, Tenant shall be permitted to place a sign bearing its name in a location approved by Landlord near the entrance to the Premises (at Tenant's cost) and will be furnished a single listing of its name in the Building's directory (at Tenant's cost), all in accordance with the criteria adopted from time to time by Landlord for the Project.  Any changes or additional listings in the directory shall be furnished (subject to availability of space) for the then Building standard charge.
25.    BROKER. Landlord and Tenant each represent and warrant that they have neither consulted nor negotiated with any broker or finder regarding the Premises, except the Landlord's Broker and Tenant's Broker.  Landlord shall pay Landlord's Broker and Tenant's Broker pursuant to separate written agreements, provided that neither the foregoing nor anything else in this Lease is intended to grant such Brokers any rights under this Lease or make them third party beneficiaries of this Lease.  Tenant shall indemnify, defend, and hold Landlord harmless from and against any claims for commissions from any real estate broker other than Landlord's Broker and Tenant's Broker with whom Tenant has dealt in connection with this Lease.  Landlord shall indemnify, defend, and hold Tenant harmless from and against payment of any leasing commission due Landlord's Broker and Tenant's Broker in connection with this Lease and any claims for commissions from any real estate broker other than Landlord's Broker and Tenant's Broker with whom Landlord has dealt in connection with this Lease.  The terms of this article shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

26.    END OF TERM.  Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord at the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease or Tenant's right of possession in good order and condition, broom-clean, except for reasonable wear and tear.  All Alterations made by Landlord or Tenant to the Premises shall become Landlord's property on the expiration or sooner termination of the Lease Term.  On the expiration or sooner termination of the Lease Term, Tenant, at its expense, shall remove from the Premises all of Tenant's personal property, all computer and telecommunications wiring, and all Alterations that Landlord designates by notice to Tenant.  Tenant shall also repair any damage to the Premises caused by the removal.  Any items of Tenant's property that shall remain in the Premises after the expiration or sooner termination of the Lease Term, may, at the option of Landlord and without notice, be deemed to have been abandoned, and in that case, those items may be retained by Landlord as its property to be disposed of by Landlord, without accountability or notice to Tenant or any other party, in the manner Landlord shall determine, at Tenant's expense.
27.    ATTORNEYS' FEES. Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, the prevailing party in any litigation or arbitration arising out of or in any manner based on or relating to this Lease, including tort actions and actions for injunctive, declaratory, and provisional relief, shall be entitled to recover from the losing party actual attorneys' fees and costs, including fees for litigating the fees incurred and fees in connection with bankruptcy or appellate proceedings.  In addition, if Landlord becomes a party to any suit or proceeding affecting the Premises or involving this Lease or Tenant's interest under this Lease, other than a suit between Landlord and Tenant, or if Landlord engages counsel to collect any of the amounts owed under this Lease, or to enforce performance of any of the agreements, conditions, covenants, provisions, or stipulations of this Lease, without commencing litigation, then the costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements incurred by Landlord shall be paid to Landlord by Tenant.
28.    NOTICES.  Any notice to be given under this Lease may be given either by a party itself or by its attorney or agent and shall be in writing and delivered by hand, by nationally recognized overnight air courier service (such as FedEx), or by the United States Postal Service, registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, in each case addressed to the respective party at the party's notice address.  A notice shall be deemed effective upon receipt or the date sent if it is returned to the addressor because it is refused, unclaimed, or the addressee has moved.
29.    EXCUSABLE DELAY.  For purposes of this Lease, the term "Excusable Delay" shall mean any delays due to strikes, lockouts, civil commotion, war or warlike operations, acts of terrorism, acts of a public enemy, acts of bioterrorism, epidemics, quarantines, invasion, rebellion, hostilities, military or usurped power, sabotage, government regulations or controls, inability to obtain any material, utility, or service because of governmental restrictions, hurricanes, floods, or other natural disasters, acts of God, or any other cause beyond the direct control of the party delayed.  Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, if Landlord or Tenant shall be delayed in the performance of any act required under this Lease by reason of any Excusable Delay, then provided notice of the Excusable Delay is given to the other party within ten days after its occurrence, performance of the act shall be excused for the period of the delay and the period for the performance of the act shall be extended for a reasonable period, in no event to exceed a period equivalent to the period of the delay.  The provisions of this article shall not operate to excuse Tenant from the payment of Rent or from surrendering the Premises at the end of the Lease Term, or from the obligations to maintain insurance, and shall not operate to extend the Lease Term.  Delays or failures to perform resulting from lack of funds or the increased cost of obtaining labor and materials shall not be deemed delays beyond the direct control of a party.
30.    QUIET ENJOYMENT.  Landlord covenants and agrees that, on Tenant's paying rent and performing all of the other provisions of this Lease on its part to be performed, Tenant may peaceably and quietly hold and enjoy the Premises for the Lease Term without material hindrance or interruption by Landlord or any other person claiming by, through, or under Landlord, subject, nevertheless, to the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease and all existing or future ground leases, underlying leases, or mortgages encumbering the Project.
31.    RELOCATION OF TENANT.  Landlord may move Tenant from the Premises to a reasonably equivalent space within the Project comparable in size and layout, on not less than 30 days' notice to Tenant.  If Landlord relocates Tenant, Landlord shall perform the interior improvements to the new space of approximate equivalence to the interior improvements in the original Premises and pay the reasonable costs of moving Tenant's property to the new space.  Landlord will also reimburse Tenant for reasonable costs of replacement of stationery, and telecommunications relocation.  Such a relocation shall not terminate or otherwise modify this Lease except that from and after the date of the relocation, the "Premises" shall refer to the relocation space into which Tenant has been moved, rather than the original Premises as defined in this Lease.  If the rentable area of the relocation space is more or less than the rentable area of the original Premises, then the Base Rent and Tenant's Allocated Share and all other terms of this Lease derived from the area of the Premises shall be appropriately adjusted.

32.    PARKING.  Tenant shall be entitled to use no more than the number of parking spaces in the Parking Areas and on such terms as specified in the Basic Lease Information and Defined Terms article of this Lease.  Additional Rent for parking spaces shall be as provided in the Basic Lease Information and Defined Terms article of this Lease and shall be due and payable, in advance, at the same time as monthly installments of Base Rent are due and payable under this Lease, plus all applicable sales taxes. Tenant shall pay for all such allocated spaces whether Tenant actually uses such spaces or not.  The parking spaces may only be used by principals and employees of Tenant.  Tenant acknowledges that its guests and visitors will be charged for parking at then current rates. "Parking Areas" shall mean the areas available for automobile parking in connection with the Building as those areas may be designated by Landlord from time to time. Except for particular spaces and areas designated from time to time by Landlord for reserved parking, if any, all parking in the Parking Areas shall be on an unreserved, first-come, first-served basis.  Landlord reserves the right to (a) reduce the number of spaces in the Parking Areas, as long as the number of parking spaces remaining is in compliance with all applicable governmental requirements; (b) to reserve spaces for the exclusive use of specific parties and change the location of any reserved spaces; and (c) change the access to the Parking Areas, provided that some manner of reasonable access to the Parking Areas remains after the change; and none of the foregoing shall entitle Tenant to any claim against Landlord  or to any abatement of Rent.  Landlord (or the operator of the Parking Areas) may charge Tenant (and/or its employees, agents, contractors, invitees, and visitors) directly for the parking fee established by Landlord (or the operator) from time to time for the use of the Parking Areas.  Parking charges may be increased on each anniversary of the Commencement Date based on Building standard rates. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for unauthorized parking in reserved spaces, and shall not be required to tow any unauthorized vehicles.
33.    FINANCIAL REPORTING.  From time to time, Tenant shall cause the following financial information to be delivered to Landlord, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, upon not less than ten days' advance written notice from Landlord:  (a) a current financial statement, including a balance sheet and a statement of income and expenses, for Tenant and Tenant's financial statements for the previous two accounting years, and (b) such other financial information pertaining to Tenant as Landlord or any lender or purchaser may reasonably request.  All financial statements shall be prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied and, if such is the normal practice of Tenant, shall be audited by an independent certified public accountant.  Tenant authorizes Landlord to obtain a credit report or credit history on Tenant from any credit reporting company from time to time without notice to Tenant.
34.1    Tenant shall have the option to extend the Lease Term for an additional period of 60 months, on the same terms and conditions as provided in this Lease, except that, for the extended term:
34.1.1    Upon exercise of this option to extend the Lease Term, this Lease, as extended, shall not contain any further option to extend as provided in this article;
34.1.2    The Base Rent shall be determined as set forth below, but in no event shall it be less than the Base Rent payable for the 12-month period immediately preceding the current expiration date of the Lease Term; and
34.1.3    Landlord shall have no obligation to perform any alterations or tenant improvements or other work in the Premises and Tenant shall continue possession of the Premises in its "as-is," "where-is," and "with all faults" condition.
34.2    The exercise of the option set forth in this article shall only be effective on, and in strict compliance with, the following terms and conditions:
34.2.1    Notice of Tenant's exercise of the option (the "Extension Notice") shall be given by Tenant to Landlord no earlier than 15 months and no later than 9 months before the current expiration date of the Lease Term.  TIME SHALL BE OF THE ESSENCE AS TO THE EXERCISE OF ANY ELECTION BY TENANT UNDER THIS ARTICLE.
34.2.2    At the time of Tenant giving Landlord notice of its election to extend the Lease Term and on the expiration of the current Lease Term, this Lease shall be in full force and effect and Tenant shall not be in default under any of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease beyond any applicable grace period.

34.2.3    The rights granted to Tenant under this article are personal to the original named Tenant in this Lease and may not be assigned or exercised by anyone other than such Tenant and only while such Tenant is in possession of the entire Premises.
34.2.4    Tenant shall increase the Security Deposit to an amount equal to two months' installments of Base Rent at the rate payable for the extended Lease Term, with the increased Security Deposit to be paid within 15 days of the determination of the Base Rent for the extended Lease Term as provided in this article.
34.3    The Base Rent shall be a sum equal to the fair market renewal rental value of the Premises for the extended Lease Term, based on and taking into account the rentals at which extensions or renewals of leases are being concluded for comparable space in the Project and in comparable Class "A" buildings in the Fort Lauderdale, Florida area at that time and for such a term and taking into account the terms and conditions of this Lease and anticipated inflation during the extended Lease Term (the "Fair Market Rental Value" or the "Value").
34.4    Within 30 days after receipt of the Extension Notice, Landlord shall advise Tenant of the applicable Fair Market Rental Value for the extended Lease Term.  If Tenant disagrees with Landlord's determination of Fair Market Rental Value, Tenant shall provide written notice to Landlord of its objection, within 30 days of Landlord's notice to Tenant, including Tenant's statement of what it believes the Fair Market Rental Value should be.  If Tenant has not timely provided an objection notice, then Landlord and Tenant shall enter into an amendment to this Lease extending the Lease Term on the terms and conditions of this article.
34.5    If Tenant delivers a timely objection notice, then upon Landlord's receipt of the notice, Landlord and Tenant shall, for a period of 30 days, negotiate in good faith to agree on the Fair Market Rental Value.  Upon agreement, Landlord and Tenant shall enter into an amendment to this Lease extending the Lease Term on the terms and conditions of this article.  If the parties cannot agree on the Fair Market Rental Value within such 30-day period, then Landlord and Tenant shall meet with each other within 35 days after Landlord's receipt of Tenant's objection notice and shall exchange in sealed envelopes their final proposal as to the Fair Market Rental Value (collectively, the "Estimates") and open such envelopes in each other's presence.  If the higher of the Estimates is no more than 105% of the lower Estimate, then the Fair Market Rental Value will be the average of the Estimates.  If the higher of the Estimates is more than 105% of the lower Estimate, and if Landlord and Tenant do not mutually agree upon the Fair Market Rental Value within five Business Days after the exchange and opening of the envelopes, then the Fair Market Rental Value shall be determined by arbitration in accordance with the expedited procedures of the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in force, with the following exceptions:  There shall be a single arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association.  The arbitrator shall be a commercial real estate broker having at least 15 years of experience in the office market area in which the Building is located and having a professional designation of CCIM or SIOR, or both designations.  The scope of the arbitrator's inquiry and determination shall be limited to whether the Landlord's or the Tenant's Estimate most closely reflects the Fair Market Rental Value and the arbitrator may not select any Value other than the Landlord's Estimate or the Tenant's Estimate.  The determination by the arbitrator shall be rendered in writing to both Landlord and Tenant and shall be final and binding on them.  The parties shall share equally in the cost of the arbitrator.  Any fees of any counsel or experts engaged directly by Landlord or Tenant, however, shall be borne by the party retaining the counsel or expert.
34.6    All options to extend the Lease Term as set forth in this article shall be null and void if Landlord and Tenant enter into any agreement extending the Lease Term on terms different than those set forth in this section.
35.    OFAC. Neither Tenant nor any of Tenant's affiliates, nor any of their respective brokers or other agents acting in any capacity in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Lease, is or will be (a) conducting any business or engaging in any transaction or dealing with any person appearing on the U.S. Treasury Department's OFAC list of prohibited countries, territories, "specifically designated nationals" ("SDNs") or "blocked persons" (each a "Prohibited Person") (which lists can be accessed at the following web address:  http://www.ustreas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/), including the making or receiving of any contribution of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of any such Prohibited Person; (b) engaging in certain dealings with countries and organizations designated under Section 311 of the USA PATRIOT Act as warranting special measures due to money laundering concerns; (c) dealing in, or otherwise engaging in any transaction relating to, any property or interests in property blocked pursuant to Executive Order No. 13224 dated September 24, 2001, relating to "Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions With Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism"; (d) a foreign shell bank or any person that a financial institution would be prohibited from transacting with under the USA PATRIOT Act; or (e) engaging in or conspiring to engage in any transaction that evades or avoids, or has the purpose of evading or avoiding, or attempting to violate, any of the prohibitions set forth in (i) any U.S. anti-money laundering law, (ii) the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, (iii) the U.S. mail and wire fraud statutes, (iv) the Travel Act, (v) any similar or successor statutes or (vi) any regulations promulgated under the foregoing statutes. If at any time this representation becomes false then it shall be considered a default under this Lease and Landlord shall have the right to exercise all of the remedies set forth in this Lease including, without limitation, immediate termination of this Lease.

36.    EVENTS AFFECTING LEASE.  Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, if Landlord, in its sole judgment, determines that (i) the creditworthiness, economic strength, or financial status of Tenant falls below a level then acceptable to Landlord, (ii) a bankruptcy proceeding is filed by or against Tenant, or (iii) the use, nature, business, activities, or reputation in the Tenant will cause harm to the Project or harm to the reputation of the Project, then Landlord may terminate the Lease on 30 days' written notice to Tenant.
37.    CORPORATE MATTERS.  Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that RIOT BLOCKCHAIN, INC., a Nevada corporation, is authorized to transact business in Florida and that RIOT BLOCKCHAIN, INC., a Nevada corporation, the named Tenant on this Lease, is the same entity with the same tax identification number formerly known as RIOT BLOCKCHAIN, INC., a Colorado corporation, which entity was also authorized to transact business in Florida, and Tenant shall indemnify, defend, and hold Landlord harmless from any claims relating to any breach of the foregoing representation, including all costs and liabilities incurred by Landlord in connection therewith, plus attorneys' fees and costs incurred by Landlord arising from any such claims.
38.1    Miscellaneous.  The words "including" and "include" and similar words will not be construed restrictively to limit or exclude other items not listed.  If any provision of this Lease is determined to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Lease shall remain in full force, if the essential provisions of this Lease for each party remain valid, binding, and enforceable.  The parties may amend this Lease only by a written agreement of the parties.  There are no conditions precedent to the effectiveness of this Lease, other than those expressly stated in this Lease.  This Lease may be executed by the parties signing different counterparts of this Lease, which counterparts together shall constitute the agreement of the parties. Landlord and Tenant intend that faxed or PDF format signatures constitute original signatures binding on the parties.  This Lease shall bind and inure to the benefit of the heirs, personal representatives, and, except as otherwise provided, the successors and assigns of the parties to this Lease.  Each provision of this Lease shall be deemed both a covenant and a condition and shall run with the land.  Any liability or obligation of Landlord or Tenant arising during the Lease Term shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
