The Company will also be responsible for the payment of additional rent to cover the Company’s share of the annual operating expenses of the building, the annual tax expenses of the building, the annual utilities costs for the building and parking. In the event of a default of certain of the Company’s obligations under the Lease, Landlord would have the right to terminate the Lease and recover certain unpaid rent and expenses.
