(b)Excepted and excluded from the Premises and the Common Facilities are the floor slab, demising walls and perimeter walls and exterior windows (except the inner surfaces of each thereof), and any space in the Premises used for shafts, stacks, pipes, conduits, fan rooms, ducts, electric or other utilities, sinks or other Building facilities, but the entry doors (and related glass and finish work) to the Premises are a part thereof.  Landlord shall have the right to place in the Premises, but in such manner as to reduce to a minimum interference with Tenant’s use of the Premises and not to reduce the usable square feet of the Premises (except to a de minimis extent) or otherwise materially adversely affect Tenant’s use and occupancy of the Premises for the purpose contemplated under this Lease, utility lines, equipment, stacks, pipes, conduits, ducts and the like.  In the event that Tenant shall install any hung ceilings or walls in the Premises, Tenant shall install and maintain, as Landlord may require, proper access panels therein to afford access to any facilities above the ceiling or within or behind the walls.  Tenant shall be entitled to install any such ceilings or walls only in compliance with the other terms and conditions of this Lease.  Tenant shall have no right to access and use the fan rooms, janitorial, electrical, telephone and telecommunications closets, conduits, risers, plenum spaces and other service areas of the Building without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

(c)Tenant may install (i) signs or lettering on or adjacent to the entry doors to the Premises, and (ii) identification signage for Tenant in the elevator lobbies on floors on which the Premises is located, provided such signs conform to sign standards for the Building adopted by Landlord in its reasonable discretion and Tenant has submitted to Landlord a plan or sketch in reasonable detail (showing, without limitation, size, color, location, materials and method of affixation) of the sign to be placed on such entry doors.

(d)The designation or use from time-to-time of portions of the Property or the Complex as Common Facilities, Base Building Systems or Laboratory Systems shall not restrict Landlord’s use of such areas for buildings, structures and/or for retail or such other purposes in connection with and consistent with the operations of the Property and the Complex as Landlord shall reasonably determine, including, without limitation, the expansion or remodeling of the Building to include one or more additional stores and restaurants, residential or other units (on the present and/or additional levels), Landlord hereby reserving the unrestricted right to build, add to, subtract from, lease, license, relocate and/or otherwise use (temporarily and/or permanently), any buildings, kiosks, other structures, parking areas, roadways or other areas or facilities anywhere upon the Building, the Property or the Complex for retail or such other purposes as Landlord shall reasonably determine, provided Landlord does not in the exercise of such right cause an unreasonable interference under the circumstances with the access to the Premises, the Parking Garage, and/or Tenant’s use of the Premises and/or the Parking Garage.  There shall be a commensurate adjustment in Tenant's Pro Rata Shares set forth in Section 1.1 as a result of any expansion or contraction of the rentable square footage of the Building or Laboratory Portion.

(a)Landlord acknowledges that it is not the intent of this Section 5.5 to prohibit Tenant from using the Premises for the Permitted Use.  Tenant may operate its business according to prudent industry practices so long as the use or presence of Hazardous Materials is strictly and properly monitored by Tenant according to all then applicable Environmental Laws.  As a material inducement to Landlord to allow Tenant to use Hazardous Materials in connection with its business, Tenant agrees to deliver to Landlord prior to the Commencement Date a list identifying each type of Hazardous Materials to be brought upon, kept, used, stored, handled, treated, generated on, or released or disposed of from, the Premises and setting forth any and all governmental approvals or permits required in connection with the presence, use, storage, handling, treatment, generation, release or disposal of such Hazardous Materials on or from the Premises ("Hazardous Materials List").  Upon request of Landlord, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord an updated Hazardous Materials List within thirty (30) days following Landlord’s request.  Tenant shall deliver to Landlord true and correct copies of the permits, approvals, reports and correspondence, and storage and management plans relating to the use, storage, handling, treatment, generation, release or disposal of Hazardous Materials by Tenant at the Premises.   At any time following Tenant's receipt of a request from Landlord, Tenant shall promptly complete a "hazardous materials questionnaire" using the form then-provided by Landlord.  At least three (3) months prior to the surrender of the Premises, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a narrative description of the actions proposed (or required by any governmental authority) to be taken by Tenant in order to surrender the Premises (including any Alterations permitted by Landlord to remain in the Premises, the Improvements and Laboratory Reusable Installations) at the expiration or earlier termination of the Term, free from any residual impact from the Tenant’s use of Hazardous Materials and otherwise released for unrestricted use and occupancy consistent with Tenant’s obligations under Section 5.5(e) below (the "Surrender Plan").  Tenant’s Surrender Plan shall state that, (a) (i) all laboratory space, including floors, walls, ceilings, counters, piping, supply lines, waste lines and plumbing in or serving the Premises and all exhaust or other ductwork in or serving the Premises, and (ii) any applicable systems shared by laboratory space, including without limitation exhaust or other ductwork, in or serving the Premises have been de-commissioned to the extent required by, and in accordance with, applicable Laws and in accordance with best industry practice; (b) the interior surfaces of the Premises (including floors, walls, ceilings, and counters), piping, supply lines, waste lines and plumbing, and all such

21

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

exhaust or other ductwork in the Premises, may be reused by a subsequent tenant or disposed of in compliance with applicable Laws without:  (i) incurring special costs on account of uncompleted de-commissioning work; (ii) undertaking special procedures for demolition, disposal, investigation, assessment, cleaning or removal of such Hazardous Materials related to the former laboratory use areas of the Premises; or (iii) giving notice in connection with such Hazardous Materials; and (c) the Premises may be reoccupied for office or laboratory use, or demolished or renovated without:  (i) incurring special costs on account of uncompleted de-commissioning work; (ii) undertaking special procedures for disposal, investigation, assessment, cleaning or removal of Hazardous Materials; or (iii) giving notice in connection with Hazardous Materials.  Further, for purposes of clauses (b) and (c), “special costs” or “special procedures” shall mean costs or procedures, as the case may be, that would not be incurred but for the nature of the Hazardous Materials as Hazardous Materials instead of non-Hazardous Materials.  The final report shall also include reasonable detail concerning the clean-up measures taken, the clean-up locations, the tests run and the analytic results applicable to the above.

(b)Any handling, treatment, transportation, storage, disposal or use of Hazardous Materials by Tenant in or about the Premises or the Property and Tenant’s use of the Premises shall comply with all applicable Environmental Laws.  Without Landlord’s prior written consent, Tenant shall not conduct any sampling or investigation of soil or groundwater on the Property to determine the presence of any constituents therein.

(c)Tenant shall indemnify, defend upon demand with counsel reasonably acceptable to Landlord, and hold Landlord and the Landlord Parties (as hereinafter defined) harmless from and against, any liabilities, losses claims, damages, interest, penalties, fines, reasonable attorneys’ and experts’ fees, court costs, remediation costs, and other expenses which result from the use, storage, handling, treatment, transportation, release, threat of release or disposal of Hazardous Materials in or about the Premises or the Property by Tenant or Tenant’s agents, employees, contractors or invitees.  The provisions of this paragraph (c) shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

(d)Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord as soon as reasonably practicable of (i) any communication received by Tenant from any governmental authority concerning Hazardous Materials which relates to the Premises or the Property, and (ii) any disposal, release or threat of release of Hazardous Materials on, under, from or about the Building or the Property of which Tenant is aware.

(e)Upon the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of Tenant’s right of possession, Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord in the same condition as received, subject to any Alterations or Laboratory Reusable Installations permitted or required by Landlord to remain in the Premises, free of Hazardous Materials (subject to the requirements of Section 5.5(a)) brought upon, kept, used, stored, handled, treated, generated in, or released or disposed of from, the Premises by any person other than Landlord or any of the Landlord Parties (collectively, “Tenant Laboratory Operations”) and released of all licenses, clearances or other authorization of any kind required to enter

22

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

into and restore the Premises issued by any governmental authority having jurisdiction over the use, storage, handling, treatment, generation, release, disposal, removal or remediation of Hazardous Materials, broom clean, ordinary wear and tear and casualty loss and condemnation excepted.  Tenant’s Surrender Plan shall be accompanied by a current listing of (i) all Hazardous Materials licenses and permits held by or on behalf of Tenant or any party claiming by, through or under Tenant with respect to the Premises, and (ii) all Hazardous Materials used, stored, handled, treated, generated, released or disposed of from the Premises, and shall be subject to the review and approval of Landlord’s environmental consultant.  In connection with the review and approval of the Surrender Plan, upon the request of Landlord, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord or its consultant such additional non-proprietary information concerning Tenant Laboratory Operations as Landlord shall reasonably request.  On or before such surrender, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord evidence that the approved Surrender Plan shall have been satisfactorily completed and Landlord shall have the right, subject to reimbursement at Tenant’s expense as set forth below, to cause Landlord’s environmental consultant to inspect the Premises and perform such additional procedures as may be deemed reasonably necessary to confirm that the Premises are, as of the effective date of such surrender or early termination of the Lease, free from any residual adverse impact from Tenant Laboratory Operations.  Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, within ten (10) days of demand as Additional Rent, for the reasonable expense incurred by Landlord for Landlord’s environmental consultant to review and approve the Surrender Plan and to visit the Premises and verify satisfactory completion of the same.  Landlord shall have the unrestricted right to deliver such Surrender Plan and any report by Landlord’s environmental consultant with respect to the surrender of the Premises to third parties.

(f)Tenant hereby represents and warrants to Landlord that (i) neither Tenant nor any of its legal predecessors has been required by any prior landlord, lender or governmental authority at any time to take remedial action in connection with Hazardous Materials contaminating a property which contamination was permitted by Tenant or such predecessor or resulted from Tenant's or such predecessor's action or use of the property in question in violation of Environmental Law, and (ii) Tenant is not subject to any enforcement order issued by any governmental authority in connection with the use, storage, handling, treatment, generation, release or disposal of Hazardous Materials (including, without limitation, any order related to the failure to make a required reporting to any governmental authority).  

(g)If Landlord has a reasonable basis to believe that Tenant or any of the Tenant Parties is in violation of any of the terms or conditions of this Section 5.5, Landlord shall have the right to conduct annual tests of the Premises to determine whether any contamination of the Premises, the Building or the Property has occurred as a result of Tenant's use.  In addition, at any time, and from time to time, prior to the expiration or earlier termination of the Term, Landlord shall have the right to conduct appropriate tests of the Premises and the Building to determine if contamination has occurred as a result of Tenant's use of the Premises.  In connection with such testing, upon the written request of Landlord, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord or its consultant such non-proprietary information concerning the use of Hazardous Materials in or about the Premises by Tenant or any party claiming by, through or under Tenant.  If contamination has occurred for

23

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

which Tenant is liable under this Section 5.5, Tenant shall pay all costs to conduct such tests.  If no such contamination is found, Landlord shall pay the costs of such tests.  Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, promptly and satisfactorily remediate in accordance with all Environmental Laws any contamination identified by such testing to be in violation of Environmental Laws.  Landlord's receipt of or satisfaction with any environmental assessment in no way waives any rights which Landlord may have against Tenant.

(h)In no event may Tenant install any underground or other storage tanks in or under the Building or at the Property without Landlord’s prior written consent, which consent may be withheld in Landlord's sole and absolute discretion.

(i)Tenant's obligations under this Section 5.5 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.  Without limitation of Landlord’s other remedies under this Lease, during any period of time after the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease required by Tenant or Landlord to complete the removal from the Premises of any Hazardous Materials (including, without limitation, the release and termination of any licenses or permits restricting the use of the Premises and the completion of the approved Surrender Plan) or to satisfy Tenant’s obligations under Section 5.5(e) above, Tenant shall continue to pay the full Rent in accordance with this Lease for any portion of the Premises not relet by Landlord in Landlord's sole discretion, which Rent shall be prorated daily.

(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord’s consent shall not be required under Section 6.1(a), and Section 6.3, Section 6.4, and Section 6.5 shall not apply to any assignment of this Lease or sublease of all or any portion of the Premises to (x) an entity into or with which Tenant is merged or consolidated, or to which all or substantially all of Tenant’s assets or stock are transferred, or (y) transactions with any entity which controls or is controlled by Tenant or is under common control with Tenant; provided and only on condition that in any such event:

(iii)the transfer is for a valid business purpose of Tenant and is not a subterfuge for the provisions of this Article 6, and

Landlord’s Recapture Right

.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in addition to withholding or granting consent with respect to any proposed Transfer, in the event the Transfer request relates to fifty percent (50%) or more of the Premises for the balance of the Term, Landlord shall have the right, to be exercised in writing within thirty (30) days after receipt of a Transfer Notice, to terminate this Lease (in the event of a proposed assignment for the remainder of the Term) or terminate that portion of the Premises to be subleased (in the event

28

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

of a proposed sublease); provided, however, Tenant shall have the right to rescind any request for sublease consent if Landlord exercises its right to recapture in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section 6.5, by providing written notice to Landlord within five (5) Business Days of Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice of its intent to recapture such subleased portion of the Premises.  In the case of a proposed assignment, this Lease shall terminate as of the date (the “Recapture Date”) which is the later of (a) sixty (60) days after receipt of Landlord’s written notice of such election, and (b)the proposed effective date of such Transfer, as if such date were the last day of the Term of this Lease.  In either event, if requested by Tenant, Landlord shall provide not less than ninety (90) days from the Recapture Date to allow Tenant to vacate and surrender the Premises, including to comply with the requirements of Section 5.5.  If Landlord exercises the rights under this Section 6.5 in connection with a proposed sublease, this Lease shall be deemed amended to eliminate the proposed sublease premises from the Premises as of the Recapture Date, and thereafter all Basic Rent and Expense Charges shall be appropriately prorated to reflect the reduction of the Premises as of the Recapture Date.  If Landlord recaptures Tenant’s sublease space which is less than all of the Premises, as a condition to Landlord’s recapture, Landlord shall agree, at its cost, to separately demise the recapture space from the balance of the Premises and otherwise adjust all mechanical systems and utilities to provide the same level of service to the retained Premises as had existed prior to Landlord exercising its recapture right.  In the event that Landlord exercises its termination right herein, Tenant shall be relieved and discharged from any further obligations under the Lease with respect to that portion of the Premises terminated by Landlord (but not any obligations accruing prior to such termination date) as of the termination date or such later date as Tenant fully vacates and surrenders the recapture space to Landlord in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Lease, including, without limitation, Section 5.5 of this Lease.

Further Requirements

.  Tenant shall reimburse Landlord on demand, as Additional Rent, for any reasonable out‑of‑pocket costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), not to exceed $3,000 in each instance, incurred by Landlord in connection with any actual or proposed assignment or sublease or other act described in paragraph (a) of Section 6.1, whether or not consummated, including the costs of making investigations as to the acceptability of the proposed assignee or subtenant.  Any sublease to which Landlord gives its consent shall not be valid unless and until Tenant and the sublessee execute a consent agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord in its reasonable discretion and a fully executed counterpart of such sublease has been delivered to Landlord.  Any sublease shall provide that: (i) the term of the sublease ends no later than one day before the last day of the Term of this Lease; (ii) such sublease is subject and subordinate to this Lease; (iii) Landlord may enforce the provisions of the sublease, including collection of rents; and (iv) in the event of termination of this Lease or reentry or repossession of the Premises by Landlord, Landlord may, at its sole discretion and option, take over all of the right, title and interest of Tenant, as sublessor, under such sublease, and such subtenant shall, at Landlord’s option, attorn to Landlord, but nevertheless Landlord shall not (A) be liable for any previous act or omission of Tenant under such sublease; (B) be subject to any defense or offset previously accrued in favor of the subtenant against Tenant; or (C) be bound by any previous modification of such sublease made without Landlord’s written consent or by any previous prepayment of more than one month’s rent.

Landlord will provide a connection point and tap and Tenant shall be responsible, as part of the Tenant Work, to connect the Premises to the ph Neutralization Tank.  Tenant shall have a non-exclusive right to use Tenant’s Laboratory Share of the ph Neutralization Tank in accordance with applicable Laws in common with other tenants of the Laboratory Portion.  Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all costs, charges and expenses incurred by Landlord from time to time in connection with or arising out of the operation, use, maintenance, repair or refurbishment of the ph Neutralization Tank, including all clean-up costs relating to the ph Neutralization Tank (collectively, “Tank Costs”); provided, however, that if the ph Neutralization Tank is being used by other tenant(s) or occupant(s) of the Laboratory Portion of the Building at any time during the Term, then Tenant shall only be obligated to pay its proportionate share of the Tank Costs, as determined by Landlord in accordance with, as reasonably determined by Landlord, either Tenant’s Laboratory Share or Tenant’s Occupied Laboratory Share, if applicable, of the Tank Costs.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the ph Neutralization Tank or the pH neutralization room is damaged or repairs to the ph Neutralization Tank or the pH neutralization room are required solely as a result of the improper use of either the ph Neutralization Tank or the pH neutralization room by

37

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Tenant, Tenant shall be responsible for one hundred percent (100%) of the cost of any repairs or replacement required as a result of such improper use by Tenant, regardless of whether the ph Neutralization Tank is then being used by other tenant(s) or occupant(s) of the Building.  

(m)Landlord has installed a back-up generator at the Property (the “Generator”), with capacity for Tenant to connect its laboratory equipment load of up to four (4) watts per usable square foot of the Laboratory Portion of the Premises (the “Tenant’s Generator Capacity”).  Tenant shall be entitled to use, at any time during the Term, up to Tenant’s Generator Capacity of power from the Generator (after deducting any power from the Generator required for the Common Facilities) on a non-exclusive basis with other tenants in the Building; provided, however, in no event shall Tenant’s equipment connected to the Generator exceed four (4) watts per usable square foot of the Laboratory Portion of the Premises.  Any back-up power needs of Tenant in excess of Tenant’s Generator Capacity shall be Tenant’s responsibility, including Tenant’s laboratory equipment, and notwithstanding Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s Space Plan or Construction Documents in accordance with Exhibit D.  Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for Tenant’s Laboratory Share of all costs, charges and expenses incurred by Landlord from time to time in connection with or arising out of the operation, use, maintenance, repair or refurbishment of the Generator, including, the costs for fuel, permitting, inspection and testing (collectively, “Generator Costs”); provided, however, that if the Generator is being used by other tenant(s) or occupant(s) of the Laboratory Portion of the Building at any time during the Term, then Tenant shall only be obligated to pay Tenant’s Occupied Laboratory Share of the Generator Costs.  Landlord expressly disclaims any warranties with regard to the Generator or the installation thereof, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.  Landlord shall maintain and repair the Generator so as to keep same in good working condition as part of Generator Costs, but shall not be liable for any failure to make any repairs or to perform any maintenance that is an obligation of Landlord unless such failure shall persist for an unreasonable time after Tenant provides Landlord with written notice of the need for such repairs or maintenance.  

(n)As part of the Laboratory Systems, Tenant shall be allowed to utilize up to Tenant’s Laboratory Share of space in the chemical storage room within the specified zone in the basement level of the Building (the “Chemical Storage Room”) for chemical storage.  The Chemical Storage Room shall be designated by the Uniform Building Code (“UBC”) as a “B” occupancy area for the use and storage of Hazardous Materials.  If the use of Hazardous Materials by Tenant requires fire control areas or chemical storage areas in excess of Tenant’s Laboratory Share, then Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense and upon Landlord’s written request, establish and maintain a separate area of the Premises classified by the UBC as a “B” occupancy area for the use and storage of Hazardous Materials, or take such other action as is necessary to ensure that its share of the fire control areas or chemical storage areas of the Building is not greater than Tenant’s Laboratory Share.  Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Landlord shall not have and expressly disclaims any liability (unless arising from Landlord's negligence or willful misconduct) related to Tenant’s or other tenants’ use or disposal of Hazardous Materials within the Chemical Storage Room, it being

38

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

acknowledged by Tenant that Tenant and other tenants are best suited to evaluate the safety and efficacy of its Hazardous Materials usage and procedures in the Premises and in the Chemical Storage Room.  

(o)Tenant shall indemnify, save, defend (at Landlord’s option and with counsel reasonably acceptable to Landlord) and hold the Landlord Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, cost, damages any liability or expense of whatever nature (“Claims”), including (a) diminution in value of the Property or any portion thereof, (b) damages for the loss or restriction on use of rentable or usable space or of any amenity of the Property, and (c)  and (c) sums paid in settlement of Claims that arise during or after the Term as a result of Tenant’s improper use of any Laboratory Systems, the ph Neutralization Tank, the Chemical Storage Room or Generator.  This indemnification by Tenant includes the reasonable costs incurred in connection with any investigation of site conditions or any clean-up, remediation, removal or restoration required by any governmental authority caused by Tenant’s improper use of the Laboratory Systems, ph Neutralization Tank, the Chemical Storage Room or Generator.

(a)Landlord reserves the right to curtail, suspend, interrupt and/or stop the supply of water, sewage, electrical current, cleaning, and other services, and to curtail, suspend, interrupt and/or stop use of entrances and/or lobbies serving access to the Building, or other portions of the Property, without thereby incurring any liability to Tenant, when necessary by reason of accident or emergency, or for repairs, alterations, replacements or improvements in the judgment of Landlord reasonably exercised desirable or necessary, or when prevented from supplying such services or use due to any act or neglect of Tenant or Tenant’s agents employees, contractors or invitees or any person claiming by, through or under Tenant or by Force Majeure, including, but not limited to, strikes, lockouts, difficulty in obtaining materials, accidents, laws or orders, or inability, by exercise of reasonable diligence, to obtain electricity, water, gas, steam, coal, oil or other suitable fuel or power.  Except as otherwise set forth in Section 7.6(b) below, no diminution or abatement of rent or other compensation, nor any direct, indirect or consequential damages shall or will be claimed by Tenant as a result of, nor shall this Lease or any of the obligations of Tenant be affected or reduced by reason of, any such interruption, curtailment, suspension or stoppage in the furnishing of the foregoing services or use, irrespective of the cause thereof.  Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease, the failure or omission on the part of Landlord to furnish any of the foregoing services or use as provided in this paragraph shall not be construed as an eviction of Tenant, actual or constructive, nor entitle Tenant to an abatement of Rent, nor to render the Landlord liable in damages, nor release Tenant from prompt fulfillment of any of its covenants under this Lease.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in each instance of stoppage, Landlord shall exercise reasonable diligence to eliminate the cause thereof and, except in case of emergency repairs, Landlord will give Tenant reasonable advance notice of any contemplated stoppage and will use reasonable efforts to avoid unnecessary inconvenience to Tenant by reason thereof.

39

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing, if (i) an interruption or curtailment, suspension or stoppage of an Essential Service (as said term is hereinafter defined) shall occur, except if any of the same is due to any act or neglect of Tenant or Tenant’s agents employees, contractors or invitees or any person claiming by, through or under Tenant, or is an event which is covered by the provisions of Article 11 of this Lease (any such interruption of an Essential Service being hereinafter referred to as a “Service Interruption”), and (ii) such Service Interruption is within the reasonable control of Landlord to remedy (and Landlord is not impeded by reason of any Force Majeure), and (iii) as a result of such Service Interruption, the Premises becomes untenantable so that for the Eligibility Period (as hereinafter defined) Tenant is unable to and does not in fact conduct its business in the affected portion of the Premises during the entirety of the Eligibility Period by reason of such untenantability, then there shall be an abatement of one day’s Basic Rent and Additional Rent (but not any of the Monthly Improvement Costs Payments) for each day during which such Service Interruption continues after the Eligibility Period until such date that the Premises or the affected portion thereof shall be rendered tenantable (or such earlier date, if any, as Tenant shall reoccupy the Premises or the affected portion thereof for the conduct of its business); provided, however, that if any part of the Premises is reasonably useable for Tenant’s normal business operations or if Tenant conducts all or any part of its operations in any portion of the Premises notwithstanding such Service Interruption, then the amount of each daily abatement of Basic Rent shall only be proportionate to the nature and extent of the interruption of Tenant’s normal operations or ability to use the Premises.  For the purposes hereof, the “Eligibility Period” shall be defined as five (5) consecutive Business Days after Landlord’s receipt of written notice from Tenant of the condition causing untenantability in the Premises.  For purposes hereof, the term “Essential Services” shall mean the following services in accordance with Landlord’s obligations under this Lease:  passenger elevator service, water and sewer/septic service, HVAC, electricity and the Laboratory Systems.  The remedies set forth in this Section 7.6(b) shall be Tenant’s sole remedy on account of a Service Interruption and this Section 7.6(b) shall not apply in the event of untenantability caused by fire or other casualty or taking (which shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Article 11 below).  A Service Interruption will not be deemed to have occurred if Tenant introduces into the Premises personnel or equipment which overloads the capacity of the Building systems or in any other way interferes with any building system’s ability to perform its proper functions, including, without limitation, Tenant’s design, layout or occupancy level of the Premises in a manner which inhibits the HVAC system’s ability to perform properly in the manner designed.

7.7Force Majeure.  If either party shall be prevented or delayed from punctually performing any obligations or satisfying any condition under this Lease as a result of a Force Majeure event, then the time to perform such obligation to satisfy such condition shall be extended on a day for day basis for the period of the delay caused by such event; provided, however, that the party claiming the benefit of this provision shall, as a condition thereto, give notice to the other party in writing within ten (10) days of the incident specifying with particularity the nature thereof, the reason therefor, the date and time such incident occurred and a reasonable estimate of the period that such incident will delay the fulfillment of obligations contained herein.  Failure to give such notice within the specified time shall render such delay invalid in extending the time for performing the obligations hereunder.  This Section

40

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

7.7 shall not apply to Tenant's obligations under Exhibit C of this Lease nor the inability of either party to pay any sum of money due hereunder or the failure to perform any other obligation due to the lack of money or inability to raise capital or borrow for any purpose.  

ARTICLE 8
INTENTIONALLY OMITTED

ARTICLE 9
BUILDING OPERATING EXPENSES AND LABORATORY OPERATING EXPENSES

Definitions

.  “Operating Year” shall mean each calendar year all or any part of which falls within the Term, “Building Operating Expenses” shall mean the aggregate costs and expenses incurred by Landlord with respect to the operation, administration, cleaning, insuring, repair, maintenance and management of the Building and the Building’s allocable share of costs with respect to the Common Facilities of the Complex, including, without limitation, the costs and expenses set forth in Exhibit F attached hereto as Building Operating Expenses (but excluding the Laboratory Operating Expenses), and “Laboratory Operating Expenses” shall mean the aggregate costs and expenses incurred by Landlord with respect to the operation, administration, cleaning, insuring, repair, maintenance and management of the Laboratory Portion of the Building and the Laboratory Systems, including, without limitation, the costs and expenses set forth in Exhibit F attached hereto as Laboratory Operating Expenses (but excluding the Building Operating Expenses).  If during any portion of the Operating Year for which Building Operating Expenses are being computed, less than ninety-five percent (95%) of the Building was occupied by tenants or Landlord was not supplying all tenants with the services being supplied under this Lease, actual Operating Expenses incurred shall be extrapolated reasonably by Landlord on an item by item basis to the estimated Building Operating Expenses that would have been incurred if the Building were at least ninety-five percent (95%) occupied for such Operating Year and such services were being supplied to all tenants, and such extrapolated amount shall, for the purposes hereof, be deemed to be the Building Operating Expenses for such Operating Year. Only those Operating Expenses that are affected by variation in occupancy levels shall be so “grossed-up”.  In the event that the Laboratory Portion is less than fully occupied, or any tenants or occupants have elected not to use any of the Laboratory Systems during any portion of the Term, Tenant acknowledges that during such time, rather than allocating such expenses based on Tenant’s Laboratory Share, Landlord may elect to allocate certain Laboratory Operating Expenses and charges to Tenant based on the ratio of the total rentable area of the Premises designed for laboratory use (as determined based on Tenant’s final as-built interior laboratory construction plans for the Premises approved by Landlord) to the total rentable area of the Laboratory Portion leased to tenants that are using that Laboratory System (“Tenant’s Occupied Laboratory Share”), as reasonably determined by Landlord.  Landlord shall have the right to recalculate the Tenant’s Occupied Laboratory Share from time to time as occupancy of the Laboratory Portion changes.  Except as expressly provided herein, or approved by Landlord, Tenant shall only be entitled to use Tenant’s Laboratory Share of the Laboratory Systems, regardless of whether Tenant is paying Tenant’s Occupied Laboratory Share or Pro Rata Share of Laboratory Portion of the costs thereof.  If and to the extent the Property includes other buildings as part of a larger project or development, Landlord shall have the right to allocate to each building on the Property, including the Building, an equitable portion of the

41

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

costs and expenses for the Common Facilities of the Property, in accordance with its good faith business judgment, and the allocable portion of such costs and expenses shall be included in Building Operating Expenses hereunder.  

Landlord shall have the right, from time to time, to equitably allocate some or all of the Building Operating Expenses for the Building among different portions or occupants of the Building (the “Cost Pools”), in Landlord’s reasonable discretion.  Such Cost Pools may include, but shall not be limited to, the office space tenants of the Building, the laboratory space tenants of the Building and the retail space tenants of the Building and Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of the Office Portion for any costs included in a Cost Pool shall be calculated on the basis of the ratio of the rentable square footage of the Premises to the rentable square footage of the portions of the Building included in such Cost Pool.  If any space in the Building is converted from retail space to office space and/or laboratory space, as applicable, then the rentable area of the space in the Building converted from retail space to office space and/or laboratory space, as applicable, shall be added to the denominator used to calculate Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of the Office Portion for the remaining portion of that calendar year and subsequent calendar years.  Likewise if any space in the Building is converted from office space and/or laboratory space, as applicable, to retail space, then the rentable area of the space in the Building converted from office space and/or laboratory space, as applicable, to retail space shall be deducted from the denominator used to calculate Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of the Office Portion for the remainder of such calendar year and subsequent calendar years.

9.2Tenant’s Payment of Operating Expenses.

(a)From and after the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent:

(i)an amount equal to (y) the Building Operating Expenses multiplied by (z) Tenant’s Pro Rata Share of the Office Portion, such amount to be apportioned for any portion of an Operating Year in which the Rent Commencement Date falls or the Term of this Lease ends; and

(ii)an amount equal to (y) the Laboratory Operating Expenses multiplied by (z) Tenant’s Laboratory Share (or, if applicable per Section 9.1, Tenant’s Occupied Laboratory Share), such amount to be apportioned for any portion of an Operating Year in which the Rent Commencement Date falls or the Term of this Lease ends.

(b)Estimated payments by Tenant on account of Building Operating Expenses and Laboratory Operating Expenses shall be made on the first day of each and every calendar month during the Term of this Lease, in the fashion herein provided for the payment of Basic Rent.  The monthly amount so to be paid to Landlord shall be sufficient to provide Landlord by the end of each Operating Year a sum equal to Tenant’s required payment, as reasonably estimated by Landlord from time to time during each Operating Year, on account of Building Operating Expenses and Laboratory Operating Expenses for such Operating Year.  After the end of each Operating Year, Landlord shall submit to Tenant a reasonably detailed accounting of Building Operating Expenses and Laboratory

42

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

liable to Tenant, or to those claiming by, through or under Tenant, for any loss or damage that may be occasioned by or through the acts or omissions of persons occupying adjoining premises or any part of the premises adjacent to or connecting with the Premises or any part of the Property or otherwise.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, and to the extent permitted by Law, Landlord shall not be released from liability for any injury, loss, damages or liability to the extent arising from any gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its servants, employees or agents acting within the scope of their authority on or about the Premises; provided, however, that in no event shall Landlord, its servants, employees or agents have any liability to Tenant based on any loss with respect to or interruption in the operation of Tenant’s business.  The provisions of this Section 10.3 shall be applicable from and after the execution of this Lease and until the end of the Term of this Lease, and during any additional period as Tenant may use or be in occupancy of any part of the Premises or of the Building.

Landlord’s Insurance

.  Landlord shall maintain, as a part of Building Operating Expenses, special form property insurance on the Building in such amounts and subject to such deductibles as Landlord may reasonably determine.  Such insurance shall be maintained with an insurance company selected by Landlord or a Superior Mortgagee, and payment for losses thereunder shall be made solely to Landlord subject to the rights of the Superior Mortgagee from time to time.  Additionally Landlord may maintain such additional insurance, including, without limitation, earthquake insurance, terrorism insurance, flood insurance, liability insurance and/or rent insurance, as Landlord may in its sole discretion elect.  The cost of all such additional insurance shall also be part of the Building Operating Expenses.  Any or all of Landlord’s insurance may be provided by blanket coverage maintained by Landlord or any affiliate of Landlord under its insurance program for its portfolio of properties or by Landlord’s or any affiliate of Landlord’s program of self‑insurance, and in such event Building Operating Expenses shall include the portion of the reasonable cost of blanket insurance or self-insurance that is allocated to the Building.  In no event shall any self-insurance costs or retentions be charged to Tenant, except that Landlord’s commercially reasonable deductible may be included in Operating Expenses.

Waiver of Subrogation

  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Landlord and Tenant each hereby waives any and all rights of recovery, claim, action, or cause of action against the other, its agents, employees, licensees, or invitees for any loss or damage to Property, Improvements or personal property (located at the Premises) of such party therein or thereon by reason of fire, the elements, or any other cause which is covered, or would have been covered, by the property insurance coverages required to be maintained by Landlord and Tenant, respectively, under this Lease, regardless of cause or origin, including omission of the other party hereto, its agents, employees, licensees, or invitees. Each party shall look to its respective insurance coverage, and its deductibles and self-insurance or self-insured retentions (which shall be deemed insurance coverage for purposes of this Section 10.5), for recovery of any insured property damage.  Landlord and Tenant covenant that no insurer shall hold any right of subrogation against either of such parties with respect thereto.  The parties hereto agree that any and all such property insurance policies required to be carried by either shall be endorsed with a subrogation clause, substantially as follows:  “This insurance shall not be invalidated should the insured waive, in writing prior to a loss, any and all right of recovery against any party for loss occurring to the Complex described therein,” and shall provide that such party’s insurer waives any right of recovery against the other party in connection with any such loss or damage.

ARTICLE 11
FIRE, EMINENT DOMAIN, ETC.

Landlord’s Right of Termination

.  If the Premises or the Building are substantially damaged (the term “substantially damaged” meaning damage of such a character that the same cannot, in the ordinary course, reasonably be expected to be repaired within two hundred ten (210) days from the time that repair work would commence, as determined in good faith by Landlord's architect) by fire or other casualty (each, a “Casualty”), then Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice of Landlord’s election so to do within ninety (90) days after the occurrence of such Casualty provided, however, that Landlord shall only be permitted to terminate this Lease on account of such damage if Landlord terminates the leases of at least 75% of the office tenants in the Building similarly affected by the casualty (where Landlord has a termination right thereunder).  If Landlord exercises such termination right, this Lease shall terminate thirty (30) days after the date of such notice with the same force and effect as if such date were the date originally established as the expiration date hereof.  In no event shall Landlord have any liability for damages to Tenant for inconvenience, annoyance or interruption of business arising from any Casualty.

11.2Restoration; Tenant’s Right of Termination

(a)If the Building or the Premises or any other improvements on or portions of the Complex including, without limitation, the Common Facilities shall be partially or totally damaged or destroyed by a Casualty and if this Lease is not terminated as provided in this Article 11, then (i) Landlord shall repair and restore the same to the condition prior to the Casualty, as applicable, (but excluding Tenant’s Removable Property and the Improvements) (the “Landlord’s Restoration Work”) with reasonable dispatch (but Landlord shall not be required to perform the same on an overtime or premium pay basis) after notice to Landlord of the Casualty and the collection of the insurance proceeds attributable to such Casualty, and (ii) Tenant shall repair and restore in accordance with Section 5.3 all of Tenant’s Removable Property and the Improvements to the condition prior to the Casualty (“Tenant’s Restoration Work”), with reasonable dispatch after the Casualty, following completion of Landlord’s Restoration Work.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if in Landlord’s sole discretion it would be appropriate for safety reasons, health reasons or the efficient operation or restoration of the Building or the Premises for Landlord to perform all or a portion of Tenant’s Restoration Work on behalf of Tenant, then (x) Landlord shall give Tenant a written notice specifying the portion of Tenant’s Restoration Work to be performed by Landlord (the “Specified Restoration Work”), (y) Landlord shall perform the Specified Restoration Work, and (z) Tenant shall pay to Landlord within ten (10) days following the giving of Landlord’s written demand therefor (or Landlord shall retain from the insurance proceeds paid to Landlord in accordance with the last sentence of this Section 11.2(a)) the cost of such Specified Restoration Work.  

(b)Landlord shall not carry any insurance on Tenant’s Removable Property or on the Improvements (including without limitation any of the Tenant Work performed in connection with this Lease other than the Landlord’s Work) that constitute part of Tenant’s Restoration Work and shall not be obligated to repair or replace Tenant’s

48

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Removable Property or such Improvements (whether or not installed by or at the expense of Landlord).  Tenant shall look solely to its insurance for recovery of any damage to or loss of Tenant’s Removable Property and any Improvements.  Tenant shall notify Landlord promptly of any casualty in the Premises.

(c)Within ninety (90) days after the occurrence of any Casualty affecting the Premises or access thereto, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a written estimate from a reputable contractor, architect or engineer designated by Landlord as to the probable length of time that will be necessary to substantially complete Landlord’s Restoration Work (“Estimated Completion Date”).  If such time estimate exceeds nine (9) months from the date that repair work would commence, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Landlord thereof within thirty (30) days after receipt of such estimate (time being of the essence with respect to the giving of such notice by Tenant).  If Tenant is entitled pursuant to the terms of this Section 11.2(c) to terminate this Lease and Tenant fails to deliver a termination notice to Landlord within the thirty (30) day period set forth herein, Tenant will be deemed to have waived Tenant’s rights under this Section 11.2(c) to terminate the Lease on account of such Casualty.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Landlord fails to complete Landlord’s Restoration Work within sixty (60) days following the Estimated Completion Date, subject to Force Majeure and any Tenant Delay, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Landlord thereof within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s failure to complete the Landlord’s Restoration Work by the date which is sixty (60) days following the Estimated Completion Date.  The provisions of this Section are in lieu of any statutory termination provisions allowable in the event of a Casualty.

(d)Except to the extent such damage by fire or other casualty is the result of any act or omission by Tenant, any subtenant or any of their respective partners, directors, officers, servants, employees, agents or contractors, if the Premises or the Building are substantially damaged by fire or other casualty, and this Lease is not otherwise terminated hereunder, and if Landlord’s Restoration Work shall not be substantially completed within ninety (90) days after the time period set forth in Landlord’s estimate for substantial completion of Landlord’s Restoration Work as described in Section 11.2(c), Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by delivering at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Landlord of such election which notice must be delivered within ten (10) Business Days after the expiration of such time period, provided, however, that if Landlord completes such restoration prior to the end of such thirty (30) day notice period, Tenant’s notice of termination shall be deemed rescinded, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect.  If Tenant is entitled pursuant to the terms of this paragraph (d) to terminate this Lease and Tenant fails to deliver a termination notice to Landlord within the ten (10) Business Day period set forth herein, Tenant will be deemed to have waived Tenant’s rights under this paragraph (d) to terminate the Lease on account of such Casualty.

(e)If this Lease is terminated under any of the provisions of this Article 11 as a result of a Casualty, Landlord shall be entitled to retain for its benefit and Tenant shall promptly pay over to Landlord the proceeds of insurance maintained by Tenant on the Improvements after deducting Tenant’s unamortized cost to initially

49

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

construct the Improvements above the amount of the Landlord’s Contribution, with such amortization being done on a straight line basis over the initial Term of this Lease in accordance with GAAP.  This Section 11.2 shall be deemed an express agreement governing any damage or destruction of the Premises by fire or other casualty, and any law providing for a contingency in the absence of an express agreement, now or hereafter in force, shall have no application.

Abatement of Rent

(a).  If the Premises is damaged by a Casualty, Basic Rent and Expense Charges payable by Tenant shall abate proportionately for the period from the date of such fire or other casualty until the earlier of (a) the date that Landlord substantially completes Landlord’s Restoration Work (provided that if Landlord would have completed Landlord’s Restoration Work at an earlier date but for Tenant having failed to cooperate with Landlord in effecting such Work or collecting insurance proceeds and such failure continued for more than two (2) Business Days after receipt by Tenant of notice thereof, then the Premises shall be deemed to have been repaired and restored on such earlier date and the abatement shall cease), or (b) the date Tenant or other occupant reoccupies any portion of the Premises for the conduct of business (in which case the Basic Rent and  Expense Charges allocable to such reoccupied portion shall be payable by Tenant from the date of such occupancy).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if by reason of any act or omission by Tenant, any subtenant or any of their respective partners, directors, officers, servants, employees, agents or contractors, Landlord, or any Mortgagee shall be unable to collect all of the insurance proceeds (including, without limitation, rent insurance proceeds) applicable to the casualty and such act or omission is not cured within five (5) business days after written notice from Landlord, then, without prejudice to any other remedies which may be available against Tenant, there shall be no abatement of Basic Rent or of Expense Charges.

11.4Eminent Domain

(a)If the Premises shall be affected by any exercise of the power of eminent domain, Basic Rent, Expense Charges and all other charges payable by Tenant shall be justly and equitably abated and reduced according to the nature and extent of the loss of use thereof suffered by Tenant.  In no event shall Landlord have any liability for damages to Tenant for inconvenience, annoyance or interruption of business arising from such exercise of the power of eminent domain.

(b)If more than 25% of the Building is taken by any exercise of the right of eminent domain, then Landlord or Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease (even if Landlord’s entire interest in the Premises may have been divested) by giving notice of its election so to do within ninety (90) days after the occurrence of the effective date of such taking, whereupon this Lease shall terminate thirty (30) days after the date of such notice with the same force and effect as if such date were the date originally established for the expiration of the Term of this Lease.

(c)If any part of the Premises is taken and such taking will prevent Tenant from conducting its business in the Premises in a manner reasonably comparable to that conducted immediately before such taking for a period of more than one hundred

50

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

eighty (180) days, then Tenant may terminate this Lease as of the date of such taking by giving written notice to Landlord within thirty (30) days after the taking, and all Basic Rent, Expense Charges and all other charges payable by Tenant under this Lease shall be apportioned as of the date of such taking.  

(d)If this Lease shall not be terminated pursuant to Section 11.4(b), Landlord shall thereafter use due diligence to restore the Premises (excluding any Alterations made by Tenant pursuant to Section 5.3) to proper condition for Tenant’s use and occupation, provided that Landlord’s obligation shall be limited to the amount of compensation recoverable by Landlord from the taking authority.  If, for any reason, such restoration shall not be substantially completed within six (6) months after the expiration of the ninety (90) day period referred to in Section 11.4(b) (which six month period may be extended for such periods of time as Landlord is prevented from proceeding with or completing such restoration for any cause beyond Landlord’s reasonable control, but in no event for more than an additional three (3) months), Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice to Landlord thereof within thirty (30) days after the expiration of such period (as so extended).  Upon the giving of such notice, this Lease shall cease and come to an end thirty (30) days after the giving of such notice, without further liability or obligation on the part of either party unless, within such thirty (30) day period, Landlord substantially completes such restoration.  Such right of termination shall be Tenant’s sole and exclusive remedy at law or in equity for Landlord’s failure so to complete such restoration.

(e)Landlord shall have and hereby reserves and excepts, and Tenant hereby grants and assigns to Landlord, all rights to recover for damages to the Property and the leasehold interest hereby created, and to compensation accrued or hereafter to accrue by reason of such taking, and by way of confirming the foregoing, Tenant hereby grants and assigns, and covenants with Landlord to grant and assign to Landlord, all rights to such damages or compensation, and covenants to deliver such further assignments and assurances thereof as Landlord may from time to time request.  Nothing contained herein shall be construed to prevent Tenant from prosecuting in any condemnation proceedings a claim for the value of any of Tenant’s Removable Property installed in the Premises by Tenant at Tenant’s expense and for relocation expenses, provided that such action shall not affect the amount of compensation otherwise recoverable by Landlord from the taking authority.

ARTICLE 12
HOLDING OVER; SURRENDER

Holding Over

.  If Tenant or anyone claiming by, through or under Tenant shall remain in possession of all or any part of the Premises (which shall include Tenant’s failure to comply with Section 5.5(e) of this Lease or a failure by Tenant to remove any Tenant’s Removable Property or Alterations as required under this Lease) after the expiration or earlier termination of the Term of this Lease, such holding over shall be treated as a daily tenancy at sufferance at a Basic Rent equal to the greater of (i) the fair market rental rate for the Premises based upon the most recent comparable transactions for the Building and in transactions for comparable space on the same floor or above in Comparable Buildings, and (ii) (y) one hundred

51

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

fifty percent (150%) of the Basic Rent in effect for the last rental period of the Term for the first thirty (30) days of Tenant’s holdover, then (z) two hundred percent (200%) of the Basic Rent in effect for the last rental period of the Term for the period following the first thirty (30) days of Tenant’s holdover, in all events plus Expense Charges and other Additional Rent herein provided (prorated on a daily basis).  If any such holding over continues for more than thirty (30) days, then, in addition to any other liabilities to Landlord accruing therefrom, Tenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from all loss, costs and damages, direct and/or indirect, sustained by reason of any such holding over, including, without limitation, claims made by and loss of any succeeding tenant arising out of such failure to timely surrender possession in the condition required under this Lease.  In all other respects, such holding over shall be on the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease as far as applicable (and excluding any extension, expansion or rights of first offer of tenant) in the Lease.  Nothing contained in this Article 12 shall be construed as a consent by Landlord to any holding over by Tenant, and Landlord shall have the right to immediately terminate such holding over pursuant to applicable Law.  The provisions of this Article 12 shall not be deemed to limit or constitute a waiver of any other rights or remedies of Landlord provided herein or at law.

Surrender of Premises

.  Upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Term of this Lease, Tenant shall promptly and peaceably quit and surrender to Landlord the Premises in neat and clean condition and in good order, condition and repair and consistent with Tenant’s obligations under this Lease including the Hazardous Materials surrender obligations of Section 5.5(e) of this Lease, together with all Alterations which may have been made or installed in, on or to the Premises prior to or during the Term of this Lease (except as otherwise expressly required pursuant to Section 5.3(e) above), excepting only ordinary wear and tear, and damage by fire or other casualty for which, under other provisions of this Lease Tenant has no responsibility to repair or restore, or as a consequence of the exercise of the power of eminent domain.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if this Lease has been terminated on account of a Casualty, Tenant will not be obligated to perform the Tenant’s Restoration Work so long as Tenant has paid the insurance proceeds to Landlord in accordance with Section 11.2(e) above.  Tenant shall remove all of Tenant’s Removable Property, all signs installed by or on behalf of Tenant in or on the Premises and the Building, all lines and other wiring and cabling installed by Tenant prior to or during the Term.  Tenant shall repair any damage to the Premises or the Building caused by such removal and restore the affected area to its condition prior to the installation thereof.  Any Tenant’s Removable Property which shall remain in the Building or on the Premises after the expiration or termination of the Term of this Lease shall be deemed conclusively to have been abandoned, and either may be retained by Landlord as its property or may be disposed of in such manner as Landlord may see fit, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense.

ARTICLE 13
RIGHTS OF MORTGAGEES; TRANSFER OF TITLE

13.1Rights of Mortgagees or Ground Lessor.

(a)This Lease, and all rights of Tenant hereunder, are and shall be subject and subordinate to any ground or underlying leases of the Property and to all renewals, extensions, modifications and replacements thereof, and to all mortgages, deeds of trust or similar encumbrances which may now or hereafter affect the Property, whether

52

or not such mortgages or other encumbrances shall also cover other lands and/or buildings, and to each and every advance made or hereafter to be made under such mortgages and other encumbrances, and to all renewals, modifications, replacements, extensions and consolidations of such mortgages and other encumbrances.  This Section shall be self operative and no further instrument of subordination shall be required.  In confirmation of such subordination, Tenant shall promptly execute, acknowledge and deliver any instrument that Landlord, the lessor under any such lease or the holder of any such mortgage or other encumbrance or any of their respective successors in interest may reasonably request to evidence such subordination.  Any lease to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate is herein called “Superior Lease” and the lessor of a Superior Lease or its successor in interest at the time referred to, is herein called “Superior Lessor”; and any mortgage or other encumbrance to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate, is herein called “Superior Mortgage” and the holder of a Superior Mortgage, or its successor in interest at the time referred to, is herein called “Superior Mortgagee.”  If any Superior Mortgagee, shall so elect, this Lease and the rights of Tenant hereunder, shall be superior in right to the rights of such holder, with the same force and effect as if this Lease had been executed, delivered and recorded, or a statutory notice hereof recorded, prior to the execution, delivery and recording of any such Superior Mortgage.  The election of any such Superior Mortgagee shall become effective upon either notice from such Superior Mortgagee to Tenant in the same fashion as notices from Landlord to Tenant are to be given hereunder or by the recording in the appropriate registry or recorder’s office of an instrument in which the Superior Mortgagee subordinates its rights under such Superior Mortgage to this Lease.

(b)If any Superior Lessor or Superior Mortgagee or the nominee or designee of any Superior Lessor or Superior Mortgagee shall succeed to the rights of Landlord under this Lease, whether through possession or foreclosure action or delivery of a new lease or deed, or otherwise, then at the request of such party so succeeding to Landlord’s rights (herein called “Successor Landlord”), Tenant shall attorn to and recognize such Successor Landlord as Tenant’s landlord under this Lease and shall promptly execute and deliver any instrument that such Successor Landlord may reasonably request to evidence such attornment.  Tenant waives the provisions of any law or regulation, now or hereafter in effect, which terminates or may give or purport to give Tenant any right to terminate or otherwise affect this Lease or the obligations of Tenant hereunder in the event that any such foreclosure, termination or other proceeding is filed, prosecuted or completed.  Upon such attornment, this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as a direct lease between the Successor Landlord and Tenant upon all of the terms, conditions and covenants as are set forth in this Lease, except that the Successor Landlord shall not be (i) liable in any way to Tenant for any act or omission, neglect or default on the part of Landlord under this Lease, (ii) responsible for any monies owing by or on deposit with Landlord to the credit of Tenant, (iii) subject to any counterclaim or setoff which theretofore accrued to Tenant against Landlord, (iv) bound by any modification of this Lease subsequent to such Superior Lease or Superior Mortgage, or by any previous prepayment of fixed rent for more than one (1) month, which was not approved in writing by the Superior Lessor or the Superior Mortgagee thereto, (v) liable to the Tenant beyond the Successor Landlord’s interest in the Property and the rents, income, receipts, revenues, issues and profits issuing from such Property, (vi) responsible for the

53

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

performance of any work to be done by the Landlord under this Lease to render the Premises ready for occupancy by the Tenant, (vii) liable for the payment of any improvement allowance or similar amount owing to Tenant on account of the performance of any alterations or leasehold improvements to the Premises or the Building, or (viii) required to remove any person occupying the Premises or any part thereof, except if such person claims by, through or under the Successor Landlord.

(c)Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to Tenant a “Subordination, Non-Disturbance and Attornment Agreement” (“SNDA”) in the then customary form of such Superior Mortgagee or Superior Lessor with respect to any future Superior Mortgages and Superior Leases.  Landlord shall in no event be required to expend any monies or commence or prosecute litigation or reject financing which is otherwise satisfactory to Landlord in order to deliver such an SNDA.  Tenant may request customary and reasonable modifications to such SNDA from the Superior Mortgagee and Superior Lessor (as the case may be) except that Landlord’s obligations under this Section 13.1(c) shall be deemed fully satisfied when Landlord delivers an SNDA from its Superior Mortgagee or Superior Lessor, as applicable, on its standard form regardless of the acceptability to such Superior Mortgagee or Superior Lessor of Tenant’s requested modifications.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 13.1, with respect to future Superior Leases, the provisions of Section 13.1(a) shall be conditioned upon the execution and delivery by and between Tenant and any such Superior Lessor of an SNDA in the then customary form of such Superior Lessor and with such customary and reasonable modifications to such SNDA as may be reasonably acceptable to the Superior Lessor and Tenant.

13.2Assignment of Rents and Transfer of Title.

(a)With reference to any assignment by Landlord of Landlord’s interest in this Lease, or the rents payable hereunder, conditional in nature or otherwise, which assignment is made to a Superior Mortgagee on property which includes the Premises, Tenant agrees that the execution thereof by Landlord, and the acceptance thereof by the Superior Mortgagee shall never be treated as an assumption by the Superior Mortgagee of any of the obligations of Landlord hereunder unless the Superior Mortgagee shall, by notice sent to Tenant, specifically otherwise elect and, except as aforesaid, the Superior Mortgagee shall be treated as having assumed Landlord’s obligations hereunder only upon foreclosure of the Superior Mortgage and the taking of possession of the Premises.

(b)In no event shall the acquisition of Landlord’s interest in the Property by a purchaser which, simultaneously therewith, leases Landlord’s entire interest in the Property back to the seller thereof be treated as an assumption by operation of law or otherwise, of Landlord’s obligations hereunder, but Tenant shall look solely to such seller‑lessee, and its successors from time to time in title, for performance of Landlord’s obligations hereunder.  In any such event, this Lease shall be subject and subordinate to the lease to such purchaser.  For all purposes, such seller‑lessee, and its successors in title, shall be the Landlord hereunder unless and until Landlord’s position shall have been assumed by such purchaser‑lessor.

54

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

(c)Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this Section, in the event of any transfer of title to the Property by Landlord, Landlord shall thereafter be entirely freed and relieved from the performance and observance of all covenants and obligations hereunder arising from and after the date of such transfer, so long as any such transferee assumes in writing (or by operation of law) all of Landlord's obligations under this Lease.

Notice to Mortgagee

.  Tenant shall not seek to enforce any remedy it may have for any default on the part of Landlord without first giving any Superior Mortgagee and Superior Lessor (of which Tenant has been provided written notice including their notice addresses), as applicable, written notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, specifying the default in reasonable detail, and affording such Superior Mortgagee and Superior Lessor, as applicable, (i) an opportunity to perform Landlord’s obligations hereunder (but not less than thirty (30) days), or (ii) time to obtain possession of the mortgaged or leased estate and then to cure such default of Landlord, if such default cannot be cured without such Superior Mortgagee or Superior Lessor or taking possession of the mortgaged or leased estate, but not to exceed one hundred eighty (180) days in the aggregate to obtain such possession and cure the Landlord default.  The curing of any of Landlord’s defaults by a Superior Mortgagee or Superior Lessor shall be treated as performance by Landlord.

ARTICLE 14
DEFAULT; REMEDIES

14.1Tenant’s Default.

(a)If at any time subsequent to the date of this Lease any one or more of the following events (herein referred to as an “Event of Default”) shall occur:

(i)Tenant shall fail to pay the Basic Rent, Expense Charges or any other Additional Rent hereunder when due and such failure shall continue for five (5) Business Days after written notice to Tenant from Landlord (except that such written notice shall only be required twice (i.e. two separate failures) in any twelve (12) month period, with any subsequent failure to pay such sums constituting an Event of Default unless paid within five (5) Business Days after the date due without need for an additional written notice); or

(ii)Tenant shall neglect or fail to perform or observe any other covenant herein contained on Tenant’s part to be performed or observed and Tenant shall fail to remedy the same within thirty (30) days after notice to Tenant (or such shorter period for completing a cure for such default as may be required by applicable Laws or by virtue of an Emergency) specifying such neglect or failure, or if such failure is of such a nature that Tenant cannot reasonably remedy the same within such thirty (30) day period, Tenant shall fail to commence promptly (and in any event within such thirty (30) day period) to remedy the same and thereafter to diligently prosecute such remedy to completion with diligence and continuity (and in any event, within ninety (90) days after the notice described in this subparagraph (ii)), provided that (x) in no event shall Tenant have such additional period of time that would (A) subject Landlord or any

55

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Superior Lessor or any Superior Mortgagee to prosecution for a crime or any other fine or charge, or (B) subject the Property, or any part thereof, to any lien or encumbrance which is not removed or bonded within the time period required under this Lease, and (y) such written notice shall only be required twice in any twelve (12) month period, with any of the same subsequent performance default constituting an Event of Default unless cured within the period required under this Lease without need for an additional written notice); or

(iii)Tenant’s leasehold interest in the Premises shall be taken on execution or by other process of law directed against Tenant; or

(iv)If Tenant or any guarantor of this Lease shall (i) make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, (ii) acquiesce in a petition in any court in any bankruptcy, reorganization, composition, extension or insolvency proceedings, (iii)  seek, consent to or acquiesce in the appointment of any trustee, receiver or liquidator of Tenant or of any guarantor of this Lease or of all or any part of Tenant’s or such guarantor’s property, (iv) file a petition seeking an order for relief under the Title 11 of the United States Code, as now or hereafter amended or supplemented (the “Bankruptcy Code”), or by filing any petition under any other present or future federal, state or other statute or law for the same or similar relief, or (v) fail to win the dismissal, discontinuation or vacating of any involuntary bankruptcy proceeding filed under the Bankruptcy Code, or under any other present or future federal, state or other statute or law for the same or similar relief, within ninety (90) days after such proceeding is initiated; or

(v)Any lien has been filed against the Property, or any portion thereof, as a result of work performed by or on behalf of Tenant (other than any work performed for Tenant by Landlord or its employees, agents or contractors), and Tenant fails, within 30 days after the lien is filed, either  (1) to cause said lien to be removed from the Property, or (2) to furnish a bond sufficient to remove the lien or cause a title insurance endorsement to be issued with respect to such lien, which endorsement shall be satisfactory, in form and substance to Landlord, in Landlord’s sole and absolute discretion; or

(vi)Tenant’s interest in the Premises shall be transferred without Landlord prior written consent, if so required, in violation of Article 6 hereof, and Tenant shall fail to remedy the same within fifteen (15) days after written notice to Tenant specifying such violation;

then in any such case Landlord may exercise any of Landlord’s rights or remedies available under this Lease, at law or in equity.

14.2Landlord’s Remedies.

(a)Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord shall have the following remedies, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies available at

56

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Law or in equity or otherwise provided in this Lease, any one or more of which Landlord may resort to cumulatively, consecutively, or in the alternative:

(i)Landlord may continue this Lease in full force and effect, and collect Rent and other charges as and when due, without prejudice to Landlord’s right to subsequently elect to terminate this Lease on account of such Event of Default;

(ii)Landlord may terminate this Lease upon written notice to Tenant to such effect, in which event this Lease (and all of Tenant’s rights hereunder) shall immediately terminate, but such termination shall not affect those obligations of Tenant which are intended by their terms to survive the expiration or termination of this Lease, and Tenant shall remain liable for damages as hereinafter set forth in this Section 14.2.  This Lease may also be terminated by a judgment specifically providing for termination;

(iii)Landlord may terminate Tenant’s right of possession without terminating this Lease upon written notice to Tenant to such effect, in which event Tenant’s right of possession of the Premises shall immediately terminate, but this Lease shall continue subject to the effect of this Section 14.2;

(iv)Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, perform any defaulted obligation of Tenant, and to recover from Tenant, as Additional Rent, the costs incurred by Landlord in performing such obligation.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, or any other notice and cure period set forth herein, Landlord may exercise its rights under this Section 14.2(a)(iv) without prior notice or upon shorter notice than otherwise required hereunder (and as may be reasonable under the circumstances) in the event of any one or more of the following circumstances is present:  (i) there exists a reasonable risk of prosecution of Landlord unless such obligation is performed sooner than the stated cure period; (ii) there exists an Emergency arising out of the defaulted obligation; or (iii) the Tenant has failed to obtain insurance required by this Lease, or such insurance has been canceled by the insurer without being timely replaced by Tenant, as required herein; and

(v)Landlord shall have the right to recover damages from Tenant, as set forth in this Section 14.2.

(b)Upon any termination of this Lease or of Tenant’s right of possession, Landlord, at its sole election,  may (i) re‑enter the Premises, either by summary proceedings or other lawful proceedings and remove and dispossess Tenant and all other persons and any and all property from the same, as if this Lease had not been made, (ii) remove all property from the Premises and store the same in a public warehouse or elsewhere at Tenant’s expense, and/or (iii) deem such property to be abandoned, and, in such event, Landlord may dispose of such property at Tenant’s expense, free from any claim by Tenant or anyone claiming by, through or under Tenant.  It shall not constitute a constructive or other termination of this Lease or Tenant’s right to possession if Landlord (a) exercises its right to repair or maintain the Premises, (b) performs any unperformed

57

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

obligations of Tenant, (c) stores or removes Tenant’s property from the Premises after Tenant’s dispossession, (d) attempts to relet, or, in fact, does relet, the Premises or (e) seeks the appointment of a receiver on Landlord’s initiative to protect Landlord’s interest under this Lease.

(c)If this Lease shall have been terminated as provided in this Article, Tenant shall pay the Basic Rent, Expense Charges, Additional Rent and other sums payable hereunder up to the time of such termination, and thereafter Tenant, until the end of what would have been the Term of this Lease in the absence of such termination, and whether or not the Premises shall have been relet, shall be liable to Landlord for, and shall pay to Landlord, as liquidated current damages:  the Basic Rent, Expense Charges, Additional Rent and other sums that would be payable hereunder if such termination had not occurred, less the net proceeds, if any, of any reletting of the Premises, after deducting all actual expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with such reletting, including, without limitation, all repossession costs, brokerage commissions, legal expenses, attorneys’ fees, advertising, expenses of employees, alteration costs and expenses of preparation for such reletting.  Tenant shall pay the portion of such current damages to Landlord monthly on the days which the Basic Rent would have been payable hereunder if this Lease had not been terminated.

(d)At any time after termination of this Lease as provided in this Article, whether or not Landlord shall have collected any such current damages under (c) above, Landlord may elect to receive from Tenant, as liquidated final damages and in lieu of all such current damages with respect to the recovery of Rent, beyond the date of such demand, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the then present value of the Basic Rent, Expense Charges, Additional Rent and other sums as hereinbefore provided which would be payable hereunder from the date of such demand assuming that, for the purposes of this paragraph, annual payments by Tenant on account of Taxes, Building Operating Expenses and Laboratory Operating Expenses would be the same as the payments required for the immediately preceding Operating or Tax Year plus a three percent (3%) annual increase per year for what would be the then unexpired Term of this Lease if the same remained in effect, over the then fair net rental value (inclusive of all such charges) of the Premises for the same period. In the computation of present value, a discount at the then market discount rate as reasonably determined by Landlord shall be employed.

(e)In case of any Event of Default, re‑entry, expiration and dispossession by summary proceedings or otherwise, Landlord may (i) relet the Premises or any part or parts thereof, either in the name of Landlord or otherwise, for a term or terms which may at Landlord’s option be equal to or less than or exceed the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the Term of this Lease and may grant concessions or free rent to the extent that Landlord considers advisable and necessary to re let the same and (ii) make such reasonable alterations, repairs and decorations in the Premises as Landlord considers advisable and necessary for the purpose of reletting the Premises; and the making of such alterations, repairs and decorations shall not operate or be construed to release Tenant from liability hereunder as aforesaid.  Tenant, for itself and any and all persons claiming through or under Tenant, including its creditors, upon the termination of this Lease and of the term of this Lease in accordance with the terms

58

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

hereof, or in the event of entry of judgment for the recovery of the possession of the Premises in any action or proceeding, or if Landlord shall enter the Premises by process of law or otherwise, hereby waives any right of redemption provided or permitted by any statute, law or decision now or hereafter in force, and does hereby waive, surrender and give up all rights or privileges which it or they may or might have under and by reason of any present or future law or decision, to redeem the Premises or for a continuation of this Lease for the term of this Lease hereby demised after having been dispossessed or ejected therefrom by process of law, or otherwise.

(f)In addition to any other remedies under this Article 14, Tenant shall immediately become liable to Landlord for all damages proximately caused by Tenant’s breach of its obligations under this Lease, including all actual costs Landlord incurs in reletting (or attempting to relet) the Premises or any part thereof, including, without limitation, brokers’ commissions, expenses of cleaning, altering and preparing the Premises for new tenants, legal fees and all other like expenses properly chargeable against the Premises and the rental received therefrom and like costs, provided that nothing set forth in this Section 14.2(f) shall be construed to impose upon Landlord any obligation to relet the Premises or to mitigate its damages hereunder, except to the extent expressly required under applicable Law or as expressly set forth in this Section 14.2(f).  If Landlord does elect to relet the Premises (or any portion thereof), such reletting may be for a period shorter or longer than the remaining Term, and upon such terms and conditions as Landlord deems appropriate, in its sole and absolute discretion, and Tenant shall have no interest in any sums collected by Landlord in connection with such reletting except to the extent expressly set forth herein.  If the Premises or any part thereof shall be relet in combination with any other space, then proper apportionment on a per-square foot basis shall be made of the rent received from such reletting and of the expenses of such reletting.  If Landlord shall succeed in reletting the Premises during the period in which Tenant is paying monthly rent damages as described in Section 14.2(c), Landlord shall credit Tenant with the net rents collected by Landlord from such reletting, after first deducting from the gross rents, as and when collected by Landlord, (A) all actual expenses incurred or paid by Landlord in collecting such rents, and (B) any theretofore unrecovered costs associated with the termination of this Lease or Landlord’s reentry into the Premises, including any theretofore unrecovered expenses of reletting or other damages payable hereunder.  If the Premises or any portion thereof be relet by Landlord for the unexpired portion of the Term before presentation of proof of such damages to any court, commission or tribunal, the amount of rent reserved upon such reletting shall, prima facie, constitute the fair and reasonable rental value for the Premises, or part thereof, so relet for the term of the reletting.  Landlord shall not be liable in any way whatsoever for its failure or refusal to relet the Premises or, if the Premises or any part are relet, for its failure to collect the rent under such reletting, and no such refusal or failure to relet or failure to collect rent shall release or affect Tenant’s liability for damages or otherwise under this Lease. The foregoing notwithstanding, in the event of termination of this Lease or repossession of the Premises after an Event of Default of Tenant, and provided Tenant has cooperated with Landlord in timely surrendering of possession of the Premises as required herein after such termination or repossession, Landlord agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages hereunder, provided, however, Landlord’s obligation to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate its damages shall be deemed

59

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

satisfied by Landlord’s marketing of the Premises in a manner substantially similar to the manner in which Landlord markets other premises within the Building, and provided further, that Landlord shall not be obligated to show preference for reletting the Premises over any other vacant space in the Building,  to lease any space while Landlord is assembling such space as part of a block of space for lease, or to lease the Premises for a rental less than the current fair market rent then prevailing for comparable office space in Comparable Buildings.

(g)If the trustee or the debtor in possession assumes the Lease under applicable bankruptcy law, it may assume and assign its interest in this Lease only if the proposed assignee first provides Landlord with (1) notice of such proposed assignment, setting forth (i) the name and address of the proposed assignee, its proposed use of the Premises, reasonably detailed character and financial references for such person (including its most recent balance sheet and income statements certified by its chief financial officer or, if available, a certified public accountant) and any other information reasonably requested by Landlord, and (ii) all of the terms and conditions of such offer, shall be given to Landlord by Tenant or such trustee no later than twenty (20) days after receipt by Tenant or such trustee of such offer, but in any event no later than ten (10) days prior to the date that Tenant or such trustee shall make application to a court of competent jurisdiction for authority and approval to assume this Lease and enter into such assignment; (2) Adequate Assurance of Future Performance (as hereinafter defined) of all of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, and (3) Landlord determines, in the exercise of its reasonable business judgment, that the assignment of this Lease will not breach any other lease, or any mortgage, financing agreement, or other agreement relating to the Property by which Landlord or the Property is then bound (and Landlord shall not be required to obtain consents or waivers from any third party required under any lease, mortgage, financing agreement, or other such agreement by which Landlord is then bound).  Landlord shall have the option, to be exercised by notice to Tenant or such trustee given at any time prior to the date the application is filed for court approval of the assumption and assignment of this Lease to the proposed assignee, to accept an assignment of this Lease upon the same terms and conditions and for the same consideration, if any, as the bona fide offer made by such proposed assignee, less any brokerage commissions which may be payable out of the consideration to be paid by such person for the assignment of this Lease.

(h)For purposes only of paragraph (g) above, and in addition to any other requirements under the Bankruptcy Code, any future federal bankruptcy law and applicable case law, “Adequate Assurance of Future Performance” means at least the satisfaction of the following conditions, which Landlord and Tenant acknowledge to be commercially reasonable:

(i)the proposed assignee submitting a current financial statement, audited by a certified public accountant, that allows a net worth and working capital in amounts determined in the reasonable business judgment of Landlord to be sufficient to assure the future performance by the assignee of Tenant’s obligation under this Lease; and

60

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

(ii)if requested by Landlord in the exercise of its reasonable business judgment, the proposed assignee obtaining a guarantee (in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord) from one or more persons who satisfy Landlord’s standards of creditworthiness; and

(iii)the proposed assignee is of a character and financial worth such as is in keeping with the standards of Landlord in those respects for the Property, the assignee’s tenancy is of the same quality as other tenants at the Property, and the purposes for which the proposed assignee intends to use the Premises are uses expressly permitted by and not prohibited by this Lease or prohibited by any other lease at the Property.

Additional Rent

.  If Tenant shall fail to pay when due any sums under this Lease designated as an Operating Expense Charge or other Additional Rent, Landlord shall have the same rights and remedies as Landlord has hereunder for failure to pay Basic Rent.

Remedying Defaults

.  Landlord shall have the right, but shall not be required, to pay such sums or do any act which requires the expenditure of monies which may be necessary or appropriate by reason of the failure or neglect of Tenant to perform any of the provisions of this Lease which failure continues beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, and in the event of the exercise of such right by Landlord, Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord forthwith upon demand all such sums, together with interest thereon at the Default Interest Rate, as Additional Rent.

Remedies Cumulative

.  The specified remedies to which Landlord may resort hereunder are not intended to be exclusive of any remedies or means of redress to which Landlord may at any time be entitled lawfully, and Landlord may invoke any remedy (including the remedy of specific performance) allowed at law or in equity as if specific remedies were not herein provided for.

Litigation Costs

.  In the event of litigation or other legal proceeding between Landlord and Tenant relating to the provisions of this Lease or Tenant’s occupancy of the Premises, the losing party shall, upon demand, reimburse the prevailing party for its reasonable costs of prosecuting and/or defending such proceeding (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees).

14.7Waiver.

(a)Failure on the part of Landlord or Tenant to complain of any action or non‑action on the part of the other, no matter how long the same may continue, shall never be a waiver by Tenant or Landlord, respectively, of any of the other’s rights hereunder.  Further, no waiver at any time of any of the provisions hereof by Landlord or Tenant shall be construed as a waiver of any of the other provisions hereof, and a waiver at any time of any of the provisions hereof shall not be construed as a waiver at any subsequent time of the same provisions.  The consent or approval of Landlord or Tenant to or of any action by the other requiring such consent or approval shall not be construed to

61

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

waive or render unnecessary Landlord’s or Tenant’s consent or approval to or of any subsequent similar act by the other.

(b)Any waiver by Landlord or Tenant of any provisions of this Lease must be in a writing signed by Landlord or Tenant, as applicable.  In addition, Landlord’s acceptance of any payment from Tenant after a termination of this Lease due to an Event of Default by Tenant shall not have the effect of reinstating this Lease, nor estop Landlord from exercising any of the rights and remedies granted to Landlord hereunder arising out of such Event of Default.  No payment by Tenant or acceptance by Landlord of a lesser amount than the Basic Rent, Expense Charges, Additional Rent and other sums due hereunder shall be deemed to be other than on account of the total amount due from Tenant to Landlord, to be applied in such order as Landlord deems appropriate.  In no event shall any endorsement or statement on any check or accompanying any check or payment be deemed an accord and satisfaction; and Landlord may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover the balance of such Basic Rent, Expense Charges, Additional Rent or other sum and to pursue any other remedy provided in this Lease.

Security Deposit

.  

(a)Simultaneously with the execution of this Lease by Tenant, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, and Tenant shall maintain in effect at all times during the Initial Term, as security for the full and faithful performance and observance by Tenant of Tenant’s covenants and obligations under this Lease, an unconditional, irrevocable, absolutely “clean” letter of credit in the amount set forth in Section 1.1 hereof and substantially in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit H or other form reasonably approved by Landlord and otherwise reasonably satisfactory to Landlord and issued by a banking corporation reasonably satisfactory to Landlord and either having its principal place of business or a duly licensed branch or agency in Boston, MA.  Such letter of credit shall have an expiration date no earlier than the first anniversary of the date of issuance thereof and shall be automatically renewed from year to year unless terminated by the issuer thereof by notice to Landlord given not less than forty-five (45) days prior to the expiration thereof.  Tenant shall, throughout the Initial Term of this Lease, deliver to Landlord, in the event of the termination of any such letter of credit, replacement letters of credit in lieu thereof (each such letter of credit and such extensions or replacements thereof, as the case may be, is hereinafter referred to as a “Letter of Credit”) no later than 30 days prior to the expiration date of the preceding Letter of Credit.  The term of each such Letter of Credit shall be not less than one year and shall be automatically renewable from year to year as aforesaid.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord shall elect, in its sole discretion, to accept a Letter of Credit which is subject to a final expiration date, Tenant shall deliver a replacement of or amendment to such Letter of Credit no later than thirty (30) days prior to such final expiration date, and the final Letter of Credit delivered to Landlord pursuant to this Section 14.8 shall have a final expiration date occurring not earlier than sixty (60) days following the expiration date of this Lease.  If Tenant shall fail to obtain any replacement of or amendment to a Letter of Credit within any of the applicable time limits set forth in this Section 14.8, Tenant shall be in default of its obligations under this Section 14.8 and Landlord shall have the right (but not the

62

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

obligation), at its option, to draw down the full amount of the existing Letter of Credit and use, apply and retain the same as security hereunder, and notwithstanding such draw by Landlord, Landlord shall have the right (but not the obligation), at its option, to give written notice to Tenant stating that such failure by Tenant to deliver such replacement of or amendment to the Letter of Credit constitutes a continuing default by Tenant of its obligations under this Section 14.8, and in the event that Tenant shall not have delivered such replacement or amendment to Landlord within fifteen (15) Business Days after Tenant’s receipt of such notice, Landlord may give to Tenant a notice of intention to end the term of this Lease at the expiration of five (5) days from the date of the service of such notice of intention, and upon the expiration of said five (5) days unless Tenant shall have delivered such replacement of or amendment to the Letter of Credit during such five (5) day period, this Lease and the term and estate hereby granted, whether or not the Initial Term shall theretofore have commenced, shall terminate with the same effect as if that day was the day herein definitely fixed for the end and expiration of this Lease, but Tenant shall remain liable for damages as provided in this Article 14.  Upon delivery to Landlord of any such replacement of or amendment to the Letter of Credit within the fifteen (15) Business Day period described in the preceding sentence, such default shall be deemed cured and Landlord shall return to Tenant the proceeds of the Letter of Credit which had been drawn by Landlord pursuant to the preceding sentence (or any balance thereof to which Tenant is entitled).

(b)In the event Tenant defaults in respect of the full and prompt payment and performance of any of the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions of this Lease beyond applicable notice (the delivery of which shall not be required for purposes of this Section 14.8 if Landlord is prevented or prohibited from delivering the same under applicable law, including, but not limited to, all applicable bankruptcy and insolvency law) and the expiration of any applicable cure periods (except that no notice and cure period shall be required for purposes of this Section 14.8 with respect to any default by Tenant hereunder if, at the time of such default, any of the events set forth in Section 14.8(b)(iv) shall have occurred with or without the acquiescence of Tenant), including, but not limited to, the payment of Basic Rent and Expense Charges, Landlord may, at its election, (but shall not be obligated to) draw down the entire Letter of Credit or any portion thereof and use, apply or retain the whole or any part of the security represented by the Letter of Credit to the extent required for the payment of: (i) Basic Rent, Expense Charges or any other sum as to which Tenant is in default, (ii) any sum which Landlord may expend or may be required to expend by reason of Tenant’s default in respect of any of the terms, provisions, covenants, and conditions of this Lease, including but not limited to, any reletting costs or expenses (including, without limitation, any free rent, tenant improvement allowance, leasing commissions, attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, and other fees, costs and expenses relating to the reletting of all or any portion of the Premises), (iii) any damages or deficiency in the reletting of the Premises, whether such damages or deficiency accrued before or after summary proceedings or other re‑entry by Landlord, or (iv) any damages awarded to Landlord in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Article 14 hereof, it being understood that any use of the whole or any part of the security represented by the Letter of Credit shall not constitute a bar or defense to any of Landlord’s other remedies under this Lease or any Law, including but not limited to Landlord’s right to assert a claim against Tenant under 11 U.S.C. §502(b)(6) or

any other provision of Title 11 of the United States Code.  To insure that Landlord may utilize the security represented by the Letter of Credit in the manner, for the purpose, and to the extent provided in this Section 14.8, each Letter of Credit shall provide that the full amount or any portion thereof may be drawn down by Landlord upon the presentation to the issuing bank (or the advising bank, if applicable) of Landlord’s draft drawn on the issuing bank without accompanying memoranda or statement of beneficiary.  In no event shall the Letter of Credit require Landlord to submit evidence to the issuing (or advising) bank of the truth or accuracy of any such written statement and in no event shall the issuing bank or Tenant have the right to dispute the truth or accuracy of any such statement nor shall the issuing (or advising) bank have the right to review the applicable provisions of the Lease.  In no event and under no circumstance shall the draw down on or use of any amounts under the Letter of Credit constitute a basis or defense to the exercise of any other of Landlord’s rights and remedies under this Lease or under any Law, including, but not limited to, Landlord’s right to assert a claim against Tenant under 11 U.S.C. §502(b)(6) or any other provision of Title 11 of the United States Code.

(c)In the event Tenant defaults in respect of any of the terms, provisions, covenants or conditions of this Lease beyond notice (the delivery of which shall not be required for purposes of this Section 14.8 if Landlord is prevented or prohibited from delivering the same under applicable law, including, but not limited to, all applicable bankruptcy and insolvency law) and the expiration of any applicable cure periods (except no notice and cure period shall be required for purposes of this Section 14.8 with respect to any default by Tenant hereunder if, at the time of such default, any of the events set forth in Section 14.8(b)(iv) shall have occurred with or without the acquiescence of Tenant) and Landlord utilizes all or any part of the security represented by the Letter of Credit but does not terminate this Lease as provided in this Article 14 hereof, Landlord may, in addition to exercising its rights as provided in paragraph (b) hereof, retain the unapplied and unused balance of the portion of the Letter of Credit drawn down by Landlord (herein called the “Cash Security”) as security for the faithful performance and observance by Tenant thereafter of the terms, provisions, and conditions of this Lease, and may use, apply, or retain the whole or any part of said Cash Security to the extent required for payment of Basic Rent, Additional Rent or any other sum as to which Tenant is in default (beyond applicable notice and cure periods) or for any sum which Landlord may expend or be required to expend by reason of Tenant’s default in respect of any of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease.  In the event Landlord uses, applies or retains any portion or all of the security represented by the Letter of Credit, Tenant shall forthwith restore the amount so used, applied or retained (at Landlord’s option, either by the deposit with Landlord of cash or the provision of a replacement Letter of Credit) so that at all times the amount of the security represented by the Letter of Credit and the Cash Security (if any) shall be not less than the security required by Section 1.1 hereof, failing which Tenant shall be in default of its obligations under this Section 14.8 and Landlord shall have the same rights and remedies as for the non‑payment of Basic Rent beyond the applicable grace period, unless Tenant shall have restored the Letter of Credit as set forth in this Section 14.8(c) within five (5) days following Landlord’s written demand for such restoration.

(d)In addition to and without limitation of Landlord’s other rights under this Section 14.8, if at any time during the Term of the Lease (as the same may be extended), Landlord reasonably determines that the financial condition of the issuer of the then current Letter of Credit is such that Landlord’s ability to draw upon the Letter of Credit is, or in the future may be, impaired, restricted, refused or otherwise adversely affected, then Tenant shall, within 10 Business Days of Landlord’s written request to Tenant, then Landlord may immediately draw upon the Letter of Credit as provided in Section 14.8 and use, apply and retain the same as Cash Security hereunder and Landlord shall have the right, by giving Tenant written notice of such requirement, to require that Tenant obtain from a new issuer a replacement Letter of Credit, which issuer and replacement Letter of Credit shall both comply in all respects with the requirements of this Section 14.8.  In the event that Tenant shall not have delivered to Landlord a replacement Letter of Credit complying with all of the requirements of this Section 14.8 within ten (10) days after Tenant’s receipt of such notice, Landlord shall have the right (but not the obligation), at its option, to give written notice to Tenant stating that such failure constitutes a continuing and immediate Default of Tenant under this Lease without any additional notice or cure period applicable thereto, and Landlord shall have the right to exercise all rights and remedies available to Landlord under this Lease or at Law and in equity with respect to such Default of Tenant.

(e)If Tenant shall fully and faithfully comply with all of Tenant’s covenants and obligations under this Lease, the Letter of Credit and the Cash Security (if any) shall be returned to Tenant within sixty (60) days after the date fixed as the end of this Lease and after delivery to Landlord of entire possession of the Premises; provided, however, that in no event shall any such return be construed as an admission by Landlord that Tenant has performed all of its obligations hereunder.  In the event of any sale, transfer or leasing of Landlord’s interest in the Building whether or not in connection with a sale, transfer or leasing of the Land to a vendee, transferee or lessee, Landlord shall have the right to transfer the Letter of Credit and the Cash Security (if any) to the vendee, transferee or lessee or, in the alternative, to require Tenant to deliver a replacement Letter of Credit or appropriate amendment to the Letter of Credit naming the new landlord as beneficiary, and, upon delivery by Tenant of a replacement Letter of Credit, if applicable, Landlord shall return the existing Letter of Credit to Tenant.  Upon such transfer or return of the Letter of Credit and the Cash Security (if any), Landlord shall thereupon be released by Tenant from all liability for the return thereof, and Tenant shall look solely to the new landlord for the return of the same.  The provisions of the preceding sentence shall apply to every subsequent sale, transfer or leasing of the Building, and any successor of Landlord may, upon a sale, transfer, leasing or other cessation of the interest of such successors in the Building, whether in whole or in part, transfer the Letter of Credit and the Cash Security (if any) to any vendee, transferee or lessee of the Building (or require Tenant to deliver a replacement Letter of Credit as hereinabove set forth) and shall thereupon be relieved of all liability with respect thereto.  If Tenant shall fail to timely deliver a replacement Letter of Credit, as required by Landlord, Tenant shall be in default of its obligations under this Section 14.8 and Landlord shall have the right (but not the obligation), at its option, to draw down the existing Letter of Credit and retain the proceeds as Cash Security hereunder until a replacement Letter of Credit is delivered, and notwithstanding such draw by Landlord, Landlord shall have the right (but not the

obligation), at its option, to give written notice to Tenant stating that such failure by Tenant to deliver such replacement Letter of Credit constitutes a continuing default by Tenant of its obligations under this Section 14.8, and in the event that Tenant shall not have delivered such replacement to Landlord within fifteen (15) Business Days after Tenant’s receipt of such notice, Landlord may give to Tenant a notice of intention to end the term of this Lease at the expiration of five (5) days from the date of the service of such notice of intention, and upon the expiration of said five (5) days this Lease and the term and estate hereby granted shall terminate in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (a) of this Section 14.8.  Upon delivery to Landlord of any such replacement Letter of Credit within the fifteen (15) Business Day period described in the preceding sentence, such default shall be deemed cured and Landlord shall return to Tenant the proceeds of the Letter of Credit which had been drawn by Landlord pursuant to the preceding sentence (or any balance thereof to which Tenant is entitled).  Landlord and Tenant hereby agree that, in connection with the transfer by Landlord or its successors or assigns hereunder of Landlord’s interest in the Letter of Credit, Tenant shall be solely liable to pay any transfer commission and other costs charged by the issuing bank in connection with any such transfer of the Letter of Credit, as Expense Charges hereunder, upon Landlord’s demand therefor.  Except in connection with a permitted assignment of this Lease, Tenant shall not assign or encumber or attempt to assign or encumber the security represented by the Letter of Credit, and neither Landlord nor its successors or assigns shall be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment or attempted encumbrance.  In any event, in the absence of evidence satisfactory to Landlord of an assignment of the right to receive the security represented by the Letter of Credit, Landlord may return the Letter of Credit to the original Tenant regardless of one or more assignments of this Lease.

(f)Neither the Letter of Credit, any proceeds therefrom or the Cash Security, if any, shall be deemed an advance rent deposit or an advance payment of any other kind, or a measure or limitation of Landlord’s damages or constitute a bar or defense to any of the Landlord’s other remedies under this Lease or at law or in equity upon Tenant’s default.

(g)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 14.8, provided that there has been no monetary Event of Default or a material non-monetary Event of Default of Tenant at any time prior to the Review Date (as hereinafter defined), the face amount of the Letter of Credit may be reduced by Tenant to $827,949.00 on the earlier to occur of (i) the third (3rd) anniversary of the Commencement Date, or (ii) the market capitalization of Tenant meeting or exceeding Two Hundred Million and 00/100 Dollars ($200,000,000) (the earlier to occur of (i) or (ii) being the “Review Date”).  If Tenant has satisfied the Reduction Condition as of the Reduction Review Date, Landlord shall, at Tenant’s election and within ten (10) Business Days after Landlord’s receipt of written request from Tenant, effect the reduction in the Letter of Credit amount required under this Lease by either accepting an amendment to the Letter of Credit which Landlord is then holding (which amendment shall be in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Landlord) or by exchanging the Letter of Credit which Landlord is then holding for a substitute Letter of Credit complying with the requirements of this Lease in the appropriate amount.  In no event shall the Letter of Credit have automatic reduction provisions.  Tenant shall be deemed to have satisfied the “Reduction

Condition” as of the Review Date if there has been no Event of Default at any time prior to the Review Date.  

(h)As a material inducement to Landlord to enter into this Lease, Tenant hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Letter of Credit and the proceeds thereof (including, without limitation any Cash Security created by the draw down of all or any portion of the Letter of Credit) and the obligation to make available or pay to Landlord all or a portion thereof in satisfaction of any obligation of Tenant under this Lease, shall be deemed third-party obligations and not the obligation of Tenant hereunder and, accordingly, (A) shall not be subject to any limitation on damages contained in Section 502(b)(6) of Title 11 of the United States Code or any other limitation on damages that may apply under any federal, state or local law, rule or regulation in connection with a bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceeding by, against or on behalf of Tenant, (B) shall not diminish or be offset against any amounts that Landlord would be able to claim against Tenant pursuant to 11 U.S.C. §502(b)(6) as if no Letter of Credit existed, and (C) may be relied on by Landlord in the event of an assignment of this Lease that is not expressly permitted in accordance with the terms of this Lease even if such assignment has been authorized and approved by a court exercising jurisdiction in connection with a bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceeding by, against or on behalf of Tenant.

Landlord’s Default

.  

(a)Subject to the provisions of Section 14.6(b) below, Landlord shall in no event be in default in the performance of any of Landlord’s obligations hereunder unless and until Landlord shall have failed to perform such obligations within thirty (30) days, or such additional time as is commercially reasonably required to correct any such default, after written notice by Tenant to Landlord properly specifying wherein Landlord has failed to perform any such obligation.  Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Lease, Tenant shall not assert any right to deduct the cost of repairs or any monetary claim against the Landlord from rent thereafter due and payable, but shall look solely to the Landlord for satisfaction of such claim.

(b)If Landlord fails to provide any services, perform any repairs or maintenance, or perform any other obligation expressly required of Landlord under the terms of this Lease (excluding any services, repairs or obligations which Landlord is unable, despite the exercise of reasonable and diligent efforts, to perform due to Force Majeure and Tenant would be similarly affected thereby), which failure materially, adversely affects Tenant’s ability to occupy or operate its business in any portion of the Premises, and Landlord fails to commence to take corrective action within ten (10) days after written notice from Tenant (or within three (3) Business Days in the event Tenant is unable to conduct business in any portion of the Premises as a result of such failure), or if Landlord timely commences such corrective action but thereafter fails to diligently complete such action, then Tenant, without limiting any other remedies of Tenant, may, after five (5) additional Business Days’ prior written notice given to Landlord, any Mortgagees of Landlord of which Tenant has written notice of, which notice indicates in bold, capitalized text that “IF LANDLORD FAILS TO COMMENCE PERFORMANCE WITHIN 5 BUSINESS DAYS’ AFTER RECEIPT, TENANT

67

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

MAY PROCEED TO EXERCISE TENANT’S SELF HELP RIGHTS UNDER SECTION 14.9(b) OF THE LEASE,” and if Landlord fails to commence such curative action within such five (5) Business Day period and thereafter diligently pursue such curative action to completion, then Tenant may make such reasonable repairs or perform such services.  Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for all out-of-pocket costs reasonably incurred in connection with such repairs or services completed by Tenant hereunder, together with interest thereon at a rate equal to the lesser of (i) a rate equal to 2% plus the prime rate published from time to time in The Wall Street Journal or its successor publication and (ii) the highest rate permitted to be charged by applicable Law, within fifteen (15) days after submission by Tenant to Landlord of a statement of such costs together with invoices and other reasonable supporting documentation .  If Landlord fails to pay such sum to Tenant within thirty (30) days after receipt of invoices and documentation of such expenditures from Tenant, then Tenant may, after five (5) additional Business Days’ prior written notice (an “Offset Notice”) given to Landlord which notice indicates in bold, capitalized text that “THIS IS A TIME SENSITIVE OFFSET NOTICE AND LANDLORD SHALL BE DEEMED TO ACCEPT SUCH OFFSET IF IT FAILS TO RESPOND TO THIS SECOND REQUEST FOR DISBURSEMENT WITHIN FIVE (5) BUSINESS DAYS AFTER RECEIPT,” and, if Landlord fails within five (5) Business Days after receipt of such Offset Notice, to either (i) send Tenant written notice which disputes in good faith that the specified payment (or portion thereof) is due from Landlord (a “Landlord’s Dispute Notice”) and setting forth with reasonable particularity Landlord’s reasons for its claim that Landlord was not in default of its obligations and/or such action did not have to be taken by Tenant pursuant to the terms of the Lease and/or that the charges are unnecessary or excessive (in which case Landlord shall pay the amount it contends would not have been unnecessary or excessive), or (ii) disburse the amount of the payment referenced in the Offset Notice, then Tenant shall have the right to have such unpaid amount, together with interest thereon at the Interest Rate, credited against the next installment(s) of Rent thereafter due under this Lease, up to a maximum monthly offset of twenty-five percent (25%) of the amount of each such payment of monthly Rent.  Tenant’s self-help rights under this Section 14.9(b) may be exercised only with respect to conditions actually existing within the Premises and, provided and only so long as essential services (including access) to other tenants in the Building are not interrupted or adversely affected, the Building Systems serving the Premises (and in any event not adversely affecting the Building Structure).  In the event Landlord delivers a Landlord’s Dispute Notice to Tenant, Tenant may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to submit Landlord’s Dispute Notice to arbitration in Boston, Massachusetts for expedited proceedings under the Expedited Procedures of the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA (or its successor).  In any case where Tenant elects to utilize such expedited arbitration:  (a) the parties will have no right to object if the arbitrator so appointed was on the list submitted by the AAA and was not objected to in accordance with Expedited Procedure E‑4 (except that any objection shall be made within four (4) Business Days from the receipt of notice of appointment), (b) the Notice of Hearing shall be given four (4) Business Days in advance of the hearing, (c) the first hearing shall be held within five (5) Business Days after the appointment of the arbitrator, and (d) the losing party in such arbitration shall pay the costs of such arbitration costs charged by the AAA and/or the arbitrator.  Judgment upon any award rendered in any

arbitration held pursuant to this Section 14.9(b) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction, and in connection therewith, the arbitrator shall be bound by the provisions of this Lease, and shall not add to, subtract from or otherwise modify such provisions.

Independent Covenants

.  Tenant hereby acknowledges and agrees that the obligations of Tenant hereunder shall be separate and independent covenants and agreements, that the obligations of Tenant hereunder, including, without limitation the obligation to pay Basic Rent, Expense Charges, Additional Rent and other sums due hereunder, shall continue unaffected, unless the requirement to pay or perform the same shall have been terminated or abated pursuant to an express provision of this Lease.  Such waiver and acknowledgements by Tenant are a material inducement to Landlord entering into this Lease.  To the extent of any conflicts or inconsistencies between the terms and provisions of this Section 14.10 and the terms and provisions of the remainder of this Lease, the terms and provisions of this Section 14.10 shall control.

ARTICLE 15

Notwithstanding the foregoing, and so long as Tenant makes such representative available at the scheduled time, Tenant shall have the right (except in the case of an emergency) to have a

representative of Tenant accompany Landlord and its agents, representatives, contractors and employees in exercising its right of access to the Premises; provided, however, Landlord shall not be responsible for any obligations under this Lease or applicable Laws to the extent Landlord is not permitted reasonable and timely access by Tenant to the necessary areas of the Premises.  

Covenant of Quiet Enjoyment

.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Lease, on payment of the Basic Rent and Expense Charges and other Additional Rent and observing, keeping and performing all of the other terms and conditions of this Lease on Tenant’s part to be observed, kept and performed, Tenant shall lawfully, peaceably and quietly enjoy the Premises during the term hereof, without hindrance or ejection by any persons lawfully claiming by, through or under Landlord to have title to the Premises superior to Tenant.  The foregoing covenant of quiet enjoyment is in lieu of any other covenant, express or implied.

15.3Landlord’s Liability.

(a)Tenant agrees to look solely to Landlord’s then equity interest in the Property at the time of recovery for recovery of any judgment against Landlord, and agrees that neither Landlord nor any successor of Landlord nor any beneficiary, trustee, member, manager, partner, director, officer, employee or shareholder of Landlord or such successor shall ever be personally liable for any such judgment, or for the payment of any monetary obligation to Tenant.  The provision contained in the foregoing sentence is not intended to, and shall not, limit any right that Tenant might otherwise have to obtain injunctive relief against Landlord or any successor of Landlord, or to take any action not involving the personal liability of Landlord or any successor of Landlord to respond in monetary damages from Landlord’s assets other than Landlord’s equity interest in the Property.  In furtherance of the foregoing, if Landlord fails to perform any provision of this Lease which is Landlord’s obligation to perform, and as a consequence of such failure, Tenant shall recover a money judgment against Landlord, such judgment shall be satisfied only (i) out of the proceeds of sale received upon levy against the right, title and interest of Landlord in the Building, or (ii) to the extent not encumbered by a secured creditor, out of the rents or other incomes receivable by Landlord from the property of which the Premises are a part.

(b)Except for Tenant’s liability for damages under Section 5.5(c) and Section 12.1 of this Lease, in no event shall either Landlord or Tenant ever be liable to the other for any loss of business or any other indirect or consequential damages suffered by that party from whatever cause. Landlord shall look solely to the assets of Tenant to enforce Tenant’s obligations hereunder and in no event shall any of Tenant’s partners, former partners, shareholders, directors, officers, principals, clients, employees or agents, directly and indirectly, disclosed or undisclosed, of Tenant ever be personally liable for any judgment against Tenant or for any other liability or obligation of Tenant under this Lease owed to Landlord or any successor of Landlord.  The provision contained in the foregoing sentence is not intended to, and shall not, limit any right that Landlord might otherwise have to obtain injunctive relief (or to take any other action against Tenant or any Tenant Parties or their respective successors in interest not involving the personal liability of Tenant or any Tenant Parties and which is not otherwise inconsistent with the recourse limitations set forth in the prior sentence).

(c)Where provision is made in this Lease for Landlord’s consent, and Tenant shall request such consent, and Landlord shall fail or refuse to give such consent, Tenant shall not be entitled to any damages for any withholding by Landlord of its consent, it being intended that Tenant’s sole remedy shall be an action for specific performance or injunction, and that such remedy shall be available only in those cases where Landlord has expressly agreed in writing not to unreasonably withhold its consent.  Furthermore, whenever Tenant requests Landlord’s consent or approval (whether or not provided for herein), Tenant shall pay to Landlord, on demand, as Additional Rent, any reasonable expenses incurred by Landlord (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, if any) in connection therewith.

(d)Any repairs or restoration required or permitted to be made by Landlord under this Lease may be made during normal business hours, and Landlord shall have no liability for damages to Tenant for inconvenience, annoyance or interruption of business arising therefrom.

Financial Statements

.  Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, within ten (10) Business Days after Landlord’s reasonable request for the same, Tenant’s most recently completed financial statements (audited if available) prepared and certified by an independent certified public accountant or certified by an officer of Tenant as being true and correct in all material respects.  Landlord and its affiliates and investors shall keep such financial statements confidential, provided that Landlord shall be permitted to deliver such financial statements to a lender, purchaser or lessor or a prospective lender, purchaser or lessor in connection with (i) a sale or financing of the Building or the Property or any interest in any deed of trust encumbering the Building or the Property, or (ii) a sale of all or substantially all of the interests in Landlord or (iii) any other recapitalization of the equity interests in Landlord, so long as Landlord first advises the recipient of the confidential nature of such statements.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if and only so long as Tenant’s stock is publicly traded on a national exchange (or publicly listed in an equivalent manner, such as on NASDAQ) that requires its financial statements to be publicly disclosed, Tenant shall have no obligation to deliver any financial statements to Landlord.  Any such financial statements may be relied upon by any actual or potential lessor, purchaser, or mortgagee of the Property.

In the event Tenant is required by Law to provide this Lease or disclose any of its terms, Tenant shall give Landlord prompt written notice of such requirement prior to making disclosure so that Landlord may seek an appropriate protective order.

ARTICLE 16

EXTENSION OF TERM

16.1Options to Extend.  Provided that, both at the time of exercise or at the commencement of the Extended Term (as hereinafter defined), (i) this Lease is in full force and effect, and (ii) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing (either at the time of exercise or at the commencement of the Extended Term), and (iii) Tenant is in occupancy of not less than 75% of the Premises and Tenant shall not have assigned this Lease or sublet more than 25% of the Premises (other than a transfer permitted without Landlord’s consent pursuant to Section 6.1(b)) (any of which conditions described in clauses (i), (ii), and (iii) may be waived by Landlord at any time in Landlord’s sole discretion), Tenant shall have the option to extend the Term of this Lease for up to one (1) extended term (the “Extended Term”) of seven (7) years by giving written notice to Landlord (an “Extension Notice”) not later than twelve (12) months prior to the expiration date of the Term.  The effective giving of such notice of extension by Tenant shall automatically extend the Term of this Lease for the Extended Term, and no instrument of renewal or extension need be executed.  In the event that Tenant fails timely to give such notice to Landlord, this Lease shall automatically terminate at the end of the Term, and Tenant shall have no further option to extend the Term of this Lease.  The Extended Term shall commence on the day immediately succeeding the expiration date of the original Term, and shall end on the day immediately preceding the seventh (7th) anniversary of such Extended Term.  The Extended Term shall be on all the terms and conditions of this Lease, except:  (x) Tenant shall have no further option to extend the Term, (y) the Basic Rent for the Extended Term shall be one-hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises as of the commencement of the Extended Term, taking into account all then relevant factors and determined pursuant to Section 16.2 below, and (z) Landlord shall not be required to furnish any materials or perform any work to prepare the Premises for Tenant’s occupancy during the Extended Term and Landlord shall not be required to provide or pay any work allowance or reimburse Tenant for any alterations made or to be made by Tenant, or to grant Tenant any rent concession with respect to the Extended Term.  The termination of this Lease during the initial Term shall terminate and render void any option or right on Tenant’s part to extend this Lease for any Extended Term, and nothing contained in this Section 16.1 shall prevent Landlord from exercising any right granted to or reserved by Landlord in this Lease to

77

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

terminate this Lease.  Tenant’s right under this Article 16 shall be personal to the Original Tenant under this Lease and shall not apply in favor of or be exercisable by any assignee of this Lease (other than a permitted transferee pursuant to Section 6.1(b) of this Lease), nor any sublessee of all or any portion of the Premises.

16.2Determination of Fair Market Rental Value.  Provided Tenant has timely delivered an Extension Notice hereunder to extend the Term of this Lease pursuant to Section 16.1 above and the conditions for Tenant’s exercise have been satisfied, Landlord shall provide Tenant, at least nine (9) months prior to the then expiration of the Term of this Lease, with Landlord’s good faith estimate of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises for the Extended Term.  If Tenant disagrees with Landlord’s estimate of the Fair Market Rental Value as set forth in Landlord’s notice referred to above, Tenant shall notify Landlord within ten (10) Business Days after its receipt of Landlord’s notice setting forth Tenant’s estimate of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises and the parties agree to act in good faith to attempt to reach agreement on the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises for the Extended Term.  If Tenant fails to notify Landlord that Tenant disagrees with Landlord’s estimate and setting forth Tenant’s Fair Market Rental Value estimate within such ten (10) Business Day period then Tenant will be deemed to have accepted Landlord’s estimate of the Fair Market Rental Value for the Premises during the Extended Term.  If Tenant has timely given its dispute notice and the parties are unable to reach agreement thereon within thirty (30) days after the delivery of such notice by Tenant, then either party may submit the determination of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises to arbitration by giving notice to the other party naming the initiating party’s arbitrator within ten (10) Business Days after the expiration of such thirty (30) day period.  Within fifteen (15) days after receiving a notice of initiation of arbitration, the responding party shall appoint its own arbitrator by notifying the initiating party of the responding party’s arbitrator.  If the second arbitrator shall not have been so appointed within such fifteen (15) day period, the initiating party shall deliver written notice of such failure to the responding party and the responding party shall have a period of ten (10) days after receipt of such notice to appoint its arbitrator and deliver written notice thereof to the initiating party.  If the responding party fails to notify the initiating party of its designated arbitrator within the foregoing additional ten (10) day period, then the second arbitrator shall be chosen in the same manner as described below with respect to the selection of the third arbitrator.  Upon the selection (or appointment, as the case may be) of the second arbitrator, the two arbitrators thus appointed shall, within fifteen (15) days after the responding party’s notice of appointment of the second arbitrator, appoint a third arbitrator.  If the two initial arbitrators are unable timely to agree on the third arbitrator, then either may, on behalf of both, request such appointment by the Boston office of the American Arbitration Association, or its successor, or, on its failure, refusal or inability to act, by a court of competent jurisdiction.  The Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises for the Extended Term shall be determined by the method commonly known as “baseball arbitration”, whereby Landlord’s selected arbitrator and Tenant’s selected arbitrator shall each set forth its respective determination of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises, and the third arbitrator must select one or the other (it being understood that the third arbitrator shall be expressly prohibited from selecting a compromise figure).  Landlord’s selected arbitrator and Tenant’s selected arbitrator shall deliver their determinations of the Fair Market Rental Value of the Premises to the third arbitrator within five (5) Business Days of the appointment of the third arbitrator and the third arbitrator shall render his or her decision within ten (10) days after receipt of both of the other two determinations of the Fair Market Rental

78

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Value of the Premises.  The third arbitrator’s decision shall be binding on both Landlord and Tenant.  All arbitrators shall be commercial real estate brokers who are independent from the parties and who have had at least ten (10) years’ experience in Comparable Buildings.  Each party shall pay the fees of its own arbitrator, and the fees of the third arbitrator shall be shared equally by the parties.  In the event Tenant initiates the aforesaid arbitration process and as of the commencement of the Extended Term the amount of the Basic Rent for the Extended Term has not been determined, Tenant shall pay the amount determined by Landlord for the Premises and when the determination has actually been made, an appropriate retroactive adjustment shall be made as of the commencement of the Extended Term if necessary.  In the event that such determination shall result in an overpayment by Tenant of any Basic Rent, such overpayment shall be paid by Landlord to Tenant promptly after such determination has been made, and if such determination shall result in an underpayment by Tenant of any Basic Rent, Tenant shall pay any such amounts to Landlord promptly following such determination.  As used in this Lease, the term “Fair Market Rental Value” shall mean the fixed annual rent and additional rent that owners of Comparable Buildings have agreed to accept, and nonaffiliated tenants of Comparable Buildings have agreed to pay in current arms-length, nonequity transactions for comparable space, for a term comparable to the Extended Term and taking into account all other then relevant factors.

ARTICLE 17

RIGHT OF FIRST OFFER

17.1Right of First Offer.

(a)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Article 17 and the rights of any Superior Occupants (as defined in Section 17.1(e)) and provided the ROFO Conditions (as hereinafter defined) are satisfied, Landlord shall give Tenant written notice (“Landlord’s Offer Notice”), at the time that Landlord determines, in its sole judgment, that any Available ROFO Space (as hereinafter defined) will become available for lease to an unrelated third party and after (1) the Superior Occupants have declined or failed to exercise their rights to lease such space, and (2) the expiration or termination of the lease with the then tenant of such space and the failure of such tenant in such space to exercise any extension or renewal rights granted to such party (any such party described in clause (2) of this Section 17.1 being an “Existing Tenant”), and Tenant will have the right to lease the offered Available ROFO Space pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Section 17.1.  For purposes hereof, “Available ROFO Space” shall mean any leasable space on the fourth (4th) and sixth (6th) floors of the Building, after (i) all Superior Occupants have declined or failed to exercise their rights to lease such space, (ii) the expiration or termination of the lease or occupancy agreement (whether or not such tenant or occupant occupies such space pursuant to a written agreement) with the then tenant or occupant of such space and the failure of such tenant or occupant in such space to exercise any extension or renewal rights granted to such party, and (iii) the failure of Landlord to grant any tenant or occupant of the space the right to renew or continue its term of occupancy whether or not such rights are expressly granted by a lease or other written instrument and whether or not such right to renew or continue its term of occupancy is subsequently memorialized in a lease or written instrument (any such party described in

79

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

clauses (ii) and (iii) being an “Existing Tenant”).   Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the Available ROFO Space is currently available for lease and the term “Initial Available ROFO Space Lease Up” shall refer to the initial leases (and any extensions or renewals thereof) entered into by Landlord with third party tenants for all or any portion of the Available ROFO Space  (any such tenant or occupant of leases entered into as part of the Initial Available ROFO Space Lease-Up being a Superior Occupant for purposes of this Article 17 with respect to the Available ROFO Space leased to such tenant or occupant).  The parties agree that the provisions of this Article 17 shall not apply to any Available ROFO Space until after the applicable Available ROFO Space has been leased by Landlord as part of the Initial Available ROFO Space Lease Up, and the tenants of the initial available ROFO Space Lease Up shall be deemed “Superior Occupants” for the purposes of this Lease.

(b)Landlord’s Offer Notice shall specify the rentable square footage and location of the Available ROFO Space (together with a floor plan of such space), the Basic Rent for the Available ROFO Space (which shall be Landlord’s estimate of the Offer Space Fair Market Rental (as defined in Section 17.2) of the Available ROFO Space), the date that Landlord estimates the Available ROFO Space will be delivered to Tenant (the “Anticipated ROFO Commencement Date”), the term of the Lease with respect to the Available ROFO Space (which term shall be coterminous with the remaining Term of this Lease subject to Section 17.1(d) below), and all other material terms and conditions which will apply to the Available ROFO Space.  Tenant shall have an option exercisable by written notice to Landlord within fifteen (15) Business Days after the date of Landlord’s Offer Notice, time being of the absolute essence, that (x) Tenant elects to lease all (but not less than all) of the Available ROFO Space identified in Landlord’s Offer Notice on the terms set forth in Landlord’s Offer Notice, (y) Tenant elects to lease the Available ROFO Space, but that Tenant disputes Landlord’s determination of Offer Space Fair Market Rental set forth in Landlord’s Offer Notice, or (z) Tenant rejects Landlord’s Offer Notice.  If Tenant rejects Landlord’s Offer Notice or if Tenant fails to timely notify Landlord of Tenant’s election, time being of the absolute essence, Tenant shall be deemed to have given notice that Tenant rejects Landlord’s Offer Notice and, in either case, Landlord shall thereafter be entitled to lease such Available ROFO Space to any third party on such terms and conditions and for such rent as Landlord determines in its sole discretion and Tenant will have no further right to lease the Available ROFO Space unless such space again becomes “Available ROFO Space” after Landlord leases the offered space to a third party after Tenant’s rejection or deemed rejection of Landlord’s Offer Notice.

(c)If Tenant timely delivers a Tenant Exercise Notice electing to lease the Available ROFO Space, then, on the date on which Landlord delivers vacant possession of such Available ROFO Space to Tenant (the “Offer Space Commencement Date”), the Available ROFO Space shall become part of the Premises, upon all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease, except that (i) the Basic Rent for the Available ROFO Space shall be the Offer Space Fair Market Rental (as hereinafter defined) for such Available ROFO Space as of the Offer Space Commencement Date, determined in the manner set forth in Section 17.2 below (unless Tenant has accepted or deemed to have accepted Landlord’s determination of the Offer Space Fair Market Rental set forth in

80

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Landlord’s Offer Notice), (ii) except as set forth in Landlord’s Offer Notice, Landlord shall not be required to perform any leasehold improvements, alterations or any other work, pay any Landlord’s contribution or grant any work allowance or any other amount, grant any rent concessions, or render any services to make the Building or the Available ROFO Space ready for Tenant’s use or occupancy, and Tenant shall accept the Available ROFO Space in its “as is” condition on the Offer Space Commencement Date, except that Landlord shall deliver the Available ROFO Space to Tenant vacant and broom clean, and (iii) subject to Section 17.1(d) below, Tenant’s lease of the Available ROFO Space shall be co-terminous with the Term of this Lease for the Premises (including being subject to Article 16 of this Lease).

(d)If the Available ROFO Space shall be available for delivery to Tenant at any time during the last thirty-six (36) months of either the original Term or the Extended Term, as the case may be, then:  (i) if Tenant then has a right to extend the Term pursuant to Section 16.1 which has not either lapsed unexercised or been irrevocably waived, then Tenant shall have no right to lease such Available ROFO Space unless Tenant irrevocably and unconditionally exercises Tenant’s extension option prior to, or simultaneously with, the giving of Tenant’s extension option exercise notice (notwithstanding any limitation as to the time of exercise set forth in Section 16.1), in which event the term as to the Available ROFO Space shall be co-terminous with the Term as so extended; or (ii) if Tenant has no further right to extend the Term (i.e., because Tenant’s right to extend the Term of the Lease pursuant to Section 16.1 has been irrevocably waived by Tenant or has lapsed unexercised), then Landlord shall have no obligation to offer to Tenant and Tenant shall have no right to lease the Available ROFO Space under this Section 16.1.  Notwithstanding Tenant’s exercise of its extension option in accordance with the foregoing clause (i), the Fair Market Rental Value for the original Premises (as it may have been previously expanded) for such Extended Term shall be determined at the same time and in the same manner such Fair Market Rental Value would have been determined if Tenant had exercised the extension option within the time periods for such exercise set forth in Section 16.1 of this Lease.

(e)The term “Superior Occupants” for purposes of this Section 17.1 shall mean and refer to (i) the tenants of the initial ROFO Space Lease Up, (ii) the Existing Tenant from time to time of any Available ROFO Space (or any affiliate of such tenant or occupant), including any extension or renewal rights granted by Landlord at any time whether prior to or subsequent to the date hereof to the Existing Tenants of any space and regardless of whether the existing or future leases for such space expressly provide the Existing Tenants thereunder with any such right to renew or extend; and (iv) any person or entity to whom Landlord may have granted prior to the date of this Lease any written option, right of first offer, right of second offer, right of first refusal, expansion right or other right to lease or occupy any space that would otherwise have been Available ROFO Space.  Landlord shall have the right to negotiate with and to lease any Available ROFO Space at any time to the Superior Occupant(s) or to extend or renew the lease or occupancy of any Superior Occupant(s) (whether or not such rights are expressly set forth in the Superior Occupant lease or occupancy agreement) before Landlord will have any obligation to offer the applicable Available ROFO Space to Tenant pursuant to this Section 17.1.  In addition, Tenant acknowledges and agrees that any space in the Building

81

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

that intends to convert to common area or building amenity space shall not be considered available to lease or subject to Tenant’s rights under this Section 17.1.

(f)Except with respect to the co-terminous Term of the Lease for any Available ROFO Space and the original Premises, nothing contained in this Article 17 shall be construed to require Landlord to offer Available ROFO Space at business terms identical to or consistent with the terms for the initial Premises under this Lease.

(g)The rights created by this Section 17.1 shall be personal to the Original Tenant under this Lease and shall not apply in favor of or be exercisable by any assignee of this Lease (other than an assignee or successor that is permitted without Landlord’s consent pursuant to Section 6.1(b) of this Lease), nor any sublessee of all or any portion of the Premises.

(h)The “ROFO Conditions” shall mean the following conditions are satisfied in full both as of the date of Landlord’s Offer Notice, and on the commencement date of this Lease as to the applicable Offer Space (as hereinafter defined):  (1) this Lease is in full force and effect, (2) no Event of Default of Tenant shall have occurred and be continuing and there shall not have been more than two monetary or material non-monetary Event of Defaults of Tenant under this Lease (even if subsequently cured by Tenant), and (3) the Original Tenant shall be in occupancy of the entire Premises and Tenant has not assigned this Lease or sublet any portion of the Premises, exclusive of transfers permitted without consent pursuant to Section 6.1(b) (provided that the foregoing requirements of clauses (2) and (3) of this sentence may be waived by Landlord in its sole discretion, at any time).

17.2Determination of Offer Space Fair Market Rental.

(a)The Basic Rent with respect to any Available ROFO Space leased by Tenant pursuant to this Section 17.1 (individually or collectively for purposes of this Section 17.2, the “Offer Space”) shall be the Offer Space Fair Market Rental for such Offer Space and which shall be determined as of the date estimated by Landlord in Landlord’s Offer Notice as the Anticipated ROFO Commencement Date for such Offer Space.  If Tenant timely so elects to lease the Available ROFO Space pursuant to Section 17.1, but disputes Landlord’s determination of the Offer Space Fair Market Rental for the Available ROFO Space, and the parties do not agree on the Offer Space Fair Market Rental within thirty days (30) after delivery of such notice from Tenant, then either party may initiate the arbitration procedure set forth in Section 16.2 above to determine the Offer Space Fair Market Rental by giving notice to the other within an additional thirty (30) days after the end of such thirty (30) day period, provided, however, for purposes of any arbitration procedure, references in Section 16.2 to “Premises” shall be deemed to refer instead to the applicable Offer Space and references to “Fair Market Rental Value” shall be deemed to refer instead to the Offer Space Fair Market Rental defined in this Section 17.2 for the remainder of the Term of this Lease.  If neither party timely submits the dispute for arbitration within such ten (10) Business Day period, Landlord’s determination in the Landlord’s Offer Notice shall be binding on the parties.  Upon determination of the Offer Space Fair Market Rental of the applicable Offer Space, or if

82

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

Tenant has accepted (or is deemed to have accepted) Landlord’s determination in the Landlord’s Offer Notice, Landlord and Tenant shall, within thirty (30) days, execute an amendment to this Lease incorporating the applicable Offer Space into the Premises upon the terms contained in Landlord’s Offer Notice, and otherwise on substantially the same terms and conditions as contained in this Lease, provided, however, failure of the parties to execute such an amendment shall have no effect on the effectiveness of the expansion of the Premises to include the applicable Offer Space and the economic terms associated therewith as set forth above.  If either party submits the determination of the Offer Space Fair Market Rental Value to arbitration  and as of the commencement date of this Lease for such Offer Space the amount of the Offer Space Fair Market Rental Value has not been determined, Tenant shall pay the amount set forth in Landlord’s determination in the Landlord’s Offer Notice as the Basic Rent for the Offer Space and when the determination has actually been made, an appropriate retroactive adjustment shall be made as of the commencement date for such Offer Space if necessary.  In the event that such determination shall result in an overpayment by Tenant of any Basic Rent, such overpayment shall be paid or, at Tenant’s election, credited by Landlord to Tenant promptly after such determination has been made, and if such determination shall result in an underpayment by Tenant of any Basic Rent, Tenant shall pay any such amounts to Landlord within thirty (30) days following such determination.

(b)For purposes of this Article 17, the “Offer Space Fair Market Rental” of the applicable Offer Space means the fixed annual rent and additional rent that owners of Comparable Buildings  have agreed to accept, and nonaffiliated tenants of Comparable Buildings have agreed to pay in current arms-length, nonequity transactions for comparable expansion space for comparable office and laboratory use, for a term comparable to the remaining Term of this Lease following the Anticipated ROFO Commencement Date and taking into account all other relevant factors, including that Landlord shall be entitled to laboratory rental rates for fifty percent (50%) of each floor now or hereafter designated for the Laboratory Portion even in the event Tenant shall not be using the same for laboratory purposes.

6.Remedy for Late Delivery.  If the Substantial Completion Date of the Landlord’s Work has not occurred by the Estimated Commencement Date, subject to a day for day postponement of such Estimated Commencement Date on account of delays in the substantial completion of the Landlord’s Work resulting from any Tenant Delay, then the April 15, 2018 date set forth in clause (i) of the definition of the Rent Commencement Date in Section 1.1 of this Lease, shall be postponed one (1) day for each day the Substantial Completion Date is delayed beyond the Estimated Commencement Date (as so extended).  If the Substantial Completion Date of the Landlord’s Work has not occurred by March 15, 2018 (the “Outside Date”), subject to a day for day postponement of such Estimated Commencement Date on account of delays in the substantial completion of the Landlord’s Work resulting from any Landlord’s Force Majeure delay and/or any Tenant Delay, and such failure of the Landlord’s Work by the Outside Date results in an actual delay of the Substantial Completion of the Tenant Work (as hereinafter defined) then Tenant shall have the right to receive a credit against the Basic Rent payable under the Lease equal to one (1) day’s Basic Rent for each calendar day following the Outside Date (as so extended) and ending on the Substantial Completion Date.

(ii)a certificate of Tenant’s architect to Landlord and any other party reasonably designated by Landlord (such as Landlord’s mortgagee, if any) specifying the percentage of completion of the Tenant Work performed in or to the Premises in accordance with the Construction Documents which Tenant has achieved as of the date of such certificate, which shall in no event be less than the sum of (A) the percentage of Landlord’s Contribution which Tenant is then seeking to have disbursed (exclusive of any holdback amount hereinafter provided in this Exhibit D), plus (B) the percentage of Landlord’s Contribution (exclusive of any holdback amount previously impounded) which has previously been disbursed to Tenant in connection with any and all prior payment requests made by Tenant for the Premises (and in any payment request seeking final payment, such certificate shall include a certification by the Tenant’s architect that the Tenant Work for the Premises has been Substantially Completed in accordance with the Construction Documents, and that all punch list items noted by the parties have also been fully completed);

(iii)a copy of the temporary or final certificate of use and occupancy (or its equivalent) issued to Tenant by the applicable governmental authority with respect to the Premises (final payment of Landlord’s Contribution only).  If the temporary certificate of use and occupancy is provided, Tenant shall provide the

D-6

ACTIVE/91437610.6


 

 

final certificate of use and occupancy as soon as it is issued by the applicable governmental authority;

(vi)Partial Lien Release for the Tenant Work with respect to which payment is being requested, other than the final payment, and a Final Lien Release for the final payment of the Landlord's Contribution.

Upon receipt and approval of all such items and subject to Landlord’s right to dispute the amount properly due pursuant to this Exhibit D in connection with a Funding Request, Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days following receipt of the Funding Request, disburse the amount requested to be funded to Tenant.  If Tenant fails to pay any portion of the Tenant Contribution as and when required, Landlord shall have the right to withhold any further funding of Landlord’s Contribution pending Tenant’s delivery of evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord that Tenant has made such Tenant Contribution and any such withholding by Landlord shall not be deemed a delay by Landlord or otherwise postpone Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent under this Lease.  In addition, excluding any portion of a Funding Request relating solely to soft costs, Landlord shall have the right to hold back five percent (5%) of the amount of requested from any Funding Request until such time as, in addition to Tenant’s satisfaction of the requirements otherwise applicable to a final payment under clauses (i) – (vi) above of this Section 4(b), Landlord has received a certificate from Tenant’s architect that all punch list items have been corrected or completed; provided, however, such hold back shall not be in addition to the retainage under Tenant’s construction contract for the Tenant’s Work and in the event Tenant submits a Funding Request that reflects at least a five percent (5%) retainage under Tenant’s construction contract for the Tenant’s Work then Landlord will not withhold such additional five percent (5%) hold back and will retain a five percent (5%) hold back only from the final Funding Request in accordance with this Section 4(b).  Subject to the twenty percent (20%) cap set forth in this Section 4(b), from and after September 15, 2017, the Landlord’s Contribution allocable to soft costs applicable to Tenant's Work hereunder shall be paid by Landlord to Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlord's receipt of a reasonably detailed invoice therefor.

(c)In addition to the Landlord’s Contribution, Landlord agrees to provide Tenant with a space planning allowance (the “Space Planning Allowance”) in an amount not to exceed $2,983.60 to be applied toward the cost of the preparation of a preliminary space plan or fit plan for the Premises to be prepared by Tenant’s architect.  The Space Planning Allowance shall be paid to Tenant within ten (10) Business Days

after the later of the date this Lease is executed and delivered by the parties and the date Landlord receives a copy of a paid invoice therefore from Tenant.

(d)Notwithstanding anything in this Lease, including this Exhibit D to the contrary, Landlord’s obligation to make any payment of the Landlord’s Contribution or the Space Planning Allowance is conditioned upon there being no uncured Event of Default under this Lease.  

Without limiting Tenant’s obligations to complete all of the Tenant Work to the Premises in accordance with the terms hereof, Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord shall have no obligation to pay or fund the final installment of Landlord’s Contribution if the Tenant Work to the Premises is not substantially complete and conditions (i) through (vi) above are not satisfied within twelve (12) months following the Rent Commencement Date of this Lease.
