ARTICLE 2

Premises and Term

 

2.1                               Premises. Landlord hereby leases to Tenant and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord, subject to and with the benefit of the terms, covenants, conditions and provisions of this Lease, the Premises, excluding the roof, exterior faces of exterior walls, the common stairways, stairwells, and pipes, ducts, conduits, wires, and appurtenant fixtures serving exclusively or in common other parts of the Building (and any areas, such as the space above the ceiling or in the walls, that may contain such pipes, ducts, conduits, wires or appurtenant fixtures), and if Tenant’s space includes less than the entire rentable area of any floor, excluding the central core area of such floor.

 

Tenant shall have, as appurtenant to the Premises, rights to use in common, subject to reasonable rules of general applicability to tenants of the Building from time to time made by Landlord of which Tenant is given notice: (a) the common walkways and driveways necessary for access to the Building, and (b) the common parking areas serving the Building.

 

Tenant shall be permitted to use, on a non-exclusive basis, up to one hundred and fifty (150) parking spaces in the parking area serving the Building (subject to reduction pursuant to subsection 6.2.4.1).

 

Landlord reserves the right from time to time, without unreasonable interference with use of the Premises: (a) to install, use, maintain, repair, replace and relocate for service to the Premises and other parts of the Building, or either, pipes, ducts, conduits, wires and appurtenant fixtures, wherever located in the Premises or Building, (b) to alter or relocate any other common facility, (c) to make any repairs and replacements to the Premises which Landlord may deem necessary, and (d) in connection with any excavation made upon adjacent land of Landlord or others, to enter, and to license others to enter, upon the Premises to do such work as the person causing such excavation deems necessary to preserve the wall of the Building from injury or damage and to support the same.

 

2.2                               Term. TO HAVE AND TO HOLD for an original term (the “Original Term”) beginning on the Commencement Date, which shall be the Date of this Lease, and ending on the Expiration Date, unless sooner terminated as hereinafter provided.

 

The term “Lease Year” as used herein shall mean a period of twelve (12) consecutive full calendar months. The first Lease Year shall begin on the Rent Commencement Date if the Rent Commencement Date is the first day of a calendar month; if not, then the first Lease Year shall commence on the Rent Commencement Date and terminate on the last day of the twelfth (12th) full calendar month after the Rent Commencement Date. Each succeeding Lease Year shall commence upon the anniversary date of the first Lease Year. The term “Partial Lease Year” as used herein shall mean the first (1st) two (2) full calendar months of the eighth (8th) Lease Year. The Partial Lease Year shall begin on the first day following the end of the seventh (7th) Lease Year.

 

2.3                               Extension Option. A. Tenant shall have the option (the “Extension Option”) to extend the Term of this Lease for one additional period of five (5) years, to begin immediately upon the expiration of the Original Term of this Lease (the “Extended Term”), provided that each of the following conditions has been satisfied:

 

(i) As of the date of the Extension Notice (defined below) and as of the commencement of the Extended Term, Tenant shall not be in default and shall not have previously been in default of its obligations under this Lease beyond any applicable grace period;

 

(ii) Tenant shall have had net income for the 12-month period immediately preceding the date of the Extension Notice and for the 12-month period immediately preceding the commencement of the Extended Term; and

 

7


 

(iii) Simultaneously with the delivery of the Extension Notice and also at the commencement of the Extended Term, Tenant shall have delivered to Landlord an audited statement, prepared by Tenant’s accountant using generally accepted accounting principles, evidencing such net income during the fiscal year(s) of Tenant ending closest to the date of the Extension Notice and closest to the commencement of the Extended Term, as appropriate (provided in each case neither fiscal year has ended earlier than four (4) months prior to the date of the Extension Notice/commencement of the Extended Term, as applicable), together with financial statements (which may be unaudited, but which shall be certified by Tenant’s Chief Financial Officer) demonstrating that Tenant has continued to have a net income for any periods from the date of such audited statements until the date of the Extension Notice/commencement of the Extended Term, as applicable.

 

B. All of the terms, covenants and provisions of this Lease shall apply to the Extended Term except that the Annual Fixed Rent Rate for such extension period shall be the market rate at the commencement of the Extended Term (“Market Rate”), as designated by Landlord. If Tenant shall elect to exercise this Extension Option, it shall do so by giving Landlord written notice (the “Extension Notice”) of its intention to do so not later than one (1) year prior to the expiration of the Original Term of this Lease, time being of the essence thereof. If timely and properly Tenant gives such notice and satisfies the conditions specified above, the extension of this Lease shall be automatically effected without the execution of any additional documents. The Original Term and the Extended Term are hereinafter collectively called the “Term” or the “term”.

 

C. Not later than thirty (30) days following the giving of Tenant’s Extension Notice, Landlord shall notify Tenant of Landlord’s determination of the Market Rate for the Extended Term. Within fifteen (15) days after Landlord gives Tenant Landlord’s determination of the Market Rate, Tenant shall notify Landlord whether Tenant accepts or disputes such rate. If Tenant disagrees with Landlord’s determination, then Landlord and Tenant shall commence negotiations to agree upon the Market Rate. In any event, the Annual Fixed Rent Rate for the Extended Term shall not be less than the Annual Fixed Rent Rate in effect immediately prior to the Extended Term. If Landlord and Tenant are unable to reach agreement on the Market Rate within thirty (30) days after the date on which Landlord first gave Tenant Landlord’s proposal for the Market Rate, then the Market Rate shall be determined as provided below.

 

D. If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree on the Market Rate by the end of said thirty (30)-day period, then within five (5) days thereafter, Landlord and Tenant shall each simultaneously submit to the other in a sealed envelope its good faith estimate of the Market Rate. If the higher of such estimates is not more than one hundred five percent (105%) of the other estimate, then the Market Rate shall be the average of the two estimates. If the matter is not resolved by the exchange of estimates, then Market Rate shall be determined by an independent arbitrator as set forth below.

 

E. Within seven (7) days after the exchange of estimates, the parties shall select, as an arbitrator, a mutually acceptable commercial real estate broker or appraiser licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts specializing in the field of commercial office leasing in the Burlington, Massachusetts area, having no less than ten (10) years’ experience (an “Approved Arbitrator”). If the parties cannot agree on such person, then within a second period of seven (7) days, each shall select one Approved Arbitrator and the two appointed Arbitrators shall, within five (5) days, select a third Approved Arbitrator who shall be the final decision-maker (the “Final Arbitrator”). If one party shall fail to timely make such appointment, then the person chosen by the other party shall be the sole arbitrator. Once the Final Arbitrator has been selected as provided for above, then, as soon thereafter as practicable, but in any case within fourteen (14) days after his or her appointment, the arbitrator shall determine the Market Rate by selecting either the Landlord’s estimate of Market Rate or the Tenant’s estimate of Market Rate. Such arbitrator must choose the proposed Market Rate that he/she determines is closest to the actual market rental rate for the Premises. There shall be no discovery or similar proceedings. The arbitrator’s decision as to which estimate shall be the Market Rate for the Extended Term shall be rendered in writing to both Landlord and Tenant and shall be final and binding upon them and shall be the Annual Fixed Rent Rate for the Extended Term. The costs of the Final Arbitrator will be equally divided between Landlord and

 

8


 

Tenant. Any fees of any Approved Arbitrator or counsel engaged by Landlord or Tenant, however, shall be borne by the party that retained such Approved Arbitrator or counsel. If the dispute between the parties as to a market rate has not been resolved before the commencement of the Extended Term, then Tenant shall pay Fixed Rent under the Lease based upon the market rate designated by Landlord until either the agreement of the parties as to the market rate, or the decision of the Final Arbitrator, as the case may be, at which time Tenant shall pay any underpayment of Fixed Rent to Landlord, or Landlord shall refund any overpayment of Fixed Rent to Tenant.

 

F. Once the Market Rate has been determined, the parties shall promptly execute an amendment to this Lease setting forth the Fixed Rent for the Premises during the Extended Term.

 

G. Tenant’s rights to extend pursuant to this Section 2.3 are personal to the initial named Tenant, Desktop Metal, Inc., and may not be assigned under any circumstances except to a Permitted Transferee (as defined in Section 6.2.1).

 

H. With respect to any assignment or subletting during the Original Term of this Lease, such assignment shall not include the right granted to Tenant under this Section 2.3 hereinabove to extend the Term, and such sublease shall be for a term expiring no later than the Expiration Date.

 

2.4                               Right of First Offer. During the Original Term of this Lease, Tenant shall have a one-time right of first offer to lease the ROFO Space (hereinafter defined) as it becomes available for lease after the Date of this Lease, subject to the terms and conditions contained below.

 

(B) “ROFO Space” shall mean all or a portion of the remaining 21,133 rentable square feet of tenant space in the Building. Tenant’s rights under this Section 2.4 shall arise only after the expiration of any lease for the ROFO Space entered into after the Date of this Lease.

 

(C) If the ROFO Space becomes available to lease as tenant space during the Original Term of this Lease, then prior to marketing such space, other than to the then tenant thereof, Landlord shall first notify Tenant in writing of the opportunity to lease the ROFO Space, on the condition that (i) the initial Tenant named herein, Desktop Metal, Inc., occupies the entire Premises, (ii) Tenant is not in default of its obligations under this Lease at the time the ROFO Space becomes available, and has not previously been in monetary default beyond the expiration of any applicable grace period under this Lease, and (iii) Tenant shall have had net income for the 12-month period immediately preceding the date of Landlord’s Preliminary ROFO Notice (as defined below).

 

(D) Within fifteen (15) days after Landlord’s written notification (“Landlord’s Preliminary ROFO Notice”), Tenant shall provide written notice to Landlord indicating whether it is interested in the possibility of leasing such ROFO Space. In the event that Tenant is interested in the possibility of leasing such ROFO Space, then simultaneously with the delivery of such written notice Tenant shall also deliver to Landlord an audited statement, prepared by Tenant’s accountant using generally accepted accounting principles, evidencing such net income during the period specified in clause (C)(iii) hereinabove. If Tenant timely so indicates its interest in the offered space, and satisfies the condition precedent set forth in subparagraph (C), then Landlord shall notify Tenant in writing (“Landlord’s Offer Notice”) specifying the terms on which Landlord intends to offer to lease the ROFO Space to the general market except that the term of the ROFO Space will be coterminous with the then remaining portion of the Term of this Lease. Landlord’s Offer Notice shall identify the ROFO Space and the terms of the offer in reasonable detail and shall include Landlord’s determination of the Market Rate (as such term is defined in Section 2.3) for the ROFO Space, which shall in no event be less than the then Annual Fixed Rent Rate in effect as of the commencement of the term with respect to the subject ROFO Space. Tenant shall within ten (10) days after the date of Landlord’s Offer Notice either accept or decline such offer in writing.

 

(E) If Tenant has accepted Landlord’s offer but believes that Landlord’s Offer Notice does not reflect the Market Rate, Tenant shall so notify Landlord stating in detail Tenant’s

 

9


 

estimate of Market Rate. If the parties are unable to agree upon the Market Rate within thirty (30) days after the date of Landlord’s Offer Notice, then the Market Rate shall be determined as set forth in subparagraph (F) below. If Tenant has declined Landlord’s offer (or if the offer is deemed rejected by Tenant’s failure timely to accept), then Landlord shall be free to offer the subject ROFO Space to the general market and Tenant shall have no further right under this Section 2.4 to lease the ROFO Space.

 

(F) If Tenant timely elects to lease such space, then the space shall, without further action by the parties, be leased by Tenant on the terms and conditions set forth in the Landlord’s Offer Notice, subject to arbitration of the Market Rate if necessary, and otherwise on all of the other terms and conditions of this Lease. If Landlord and Tenant cannot agree on the Market Rate for any ROFO Space, their dispute shall be resolved by a procedure similar to that set forth in Section 2.3 (D), (E) and (F)of this Lease, and the result thereof shall be binding on Landlord and Tenant. When implementing the procedure set forth in said Section 2.3(D), (E) and (F), the phrase “Extended Term” used therein shall be deemed to mean the applicable ROFO term.

 

(G) If there are twenty-four (24) or fewer months remaining in the Original Term at the time of any Landlord’s Offer Notice, Landlord shall have the option to require Tenant to concurrently exercise its Extension Option for the Extended Term as a prerequisite for accepting the ROFO Space. The Annual Fixed Rent Rate for the entire Premises, including the ROFO Space, during the Extended Term will be determined in the same manner as set forth in Section 2.3 (B) for determining the Annual Fixed Rent Rate during the Extended Term. If Tenant declines to exercise its option to extend the Lease for the Extended Term, then Tenant shall be deemed to have rejected Landlord’s offer for the subject ROFO Space and Landlord will be free to offer such space to the general market and Tenant shall have no further right under this Section 2.4 to lease the ROFO Space.

 

(H) This right of first offer is personal to Desktop Metal, Inc., and may not be assigned to any other party, except to a Permitted Transferee.

 

ARTICLE 3

Improvements

 

3.1                               Landlord’s Work. Landlord shall, at Landlord’s expense, cause to be performed the work required by Exhibits B and C (collectively, “Landlord’s Work”). The first portion of Landlord’s Work is as set forth on Exhibit B attached to this Lease (the “Initial Landlord’s Work”). The second portion of Landlord’s Work is as set forth on Exhibit C attached to this Lease (the “Remaining Landlord’s Work”). Landlord shall commence Landlord’s Work following the Date of this Lease with the understanding that Landlord shall diligently attend to those components of the Initial Landlord’s Work as necessary to meet the Initial Landlord’s Work Target Date stated in Section 1.1 above in order for Tenant to commence Tenant’s Work (defined below). Landlord s Work shall be done in a good and workmanlike manner employing good materials and so as to conform to all applicable building laws. Tenant agrees that Landlord may make any changes in such work which may become reasonably necessary or advisable without approval of Tenant, provided written notice is promptly given to Tenant. It is the intent of the parties that Tenant may commence Tenant’s Work (as defined below) while Landlord is performing the Initial Landlord’s Work, with the understanding that all portions of Landlord’s Work (both the Initial Landlord’s Work and the Remaining Landlord’s Work) and Tenant’s Work can be performed simultaneously, it being agreed that Tenant and Landlord shall reasonably cooperate with each other to facilitate such work. Tenant wishes to move into that portion of the Premises that Tenant intends to use as laboratory space (the “Lab Space”) by December 31, 2016. Provided that the same will not delay the Substantial Completion of Landlord’s Work (or any component thereof), Landlord intends to cooperate with Tenant’s efforts to obtain a temporary certificate of occupancy for the Lab Space to enable Tenant to occupy the Lab Space on such date.

 

Landlord agrees that Tenant may make changes in Landlord’s Work to request upgrades to certain components with the approval of Landlord (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed taking into account time constraints for the completion of Landlord’s Work, and otherwise utilizing the standards set forth in Section 6.2.5 regarding Landlord’s approval of alterations) and the execution by

 

10


 

Landlord and Tenant of a Work Change Order, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D. Tenant shall be responsible for all costs associated with such change orders or upgrades, including but not limited to any engineering or other professional fees associated with such items.

 

The terms “Substantially Completed”, “Substantial Completion” or any permutation thereof as used herein shall mean that the applicable portion of Landlord’s Work (i.e. the Initial Landlord’s Work and/or the Remaining Landlord’s Work) has been completed with the exception of minor items which can be fully completed without material interference with Tenant and other items which because of the season or weather or the nature of the item are not practicable to do at the time, provided that none of said items is necessary to make the Premises tenantable for the Permitted Uses. However, if Landlord is delayed from Substantially Completing any portion of Landlord’s Work (i.e. the Initial Landlord’s Work and/or the Remaining Landlord’s Work) because of a Tenant Delay (defined in Section 3.2 below), then such portion of Landlord’s Work shall be deemed to be “Substantially Completed” on the date that such work would have been Substantially Completed but for such Tenant Delay (but Landlord shall not be relieved of the obligation to actually complete Landlord’s Work).

 

Provided the Lease is fully executed on or before August 23, 2016, then, subject to Force Majeure events (defined in Section 10.5 hereof) and any Tenant Delay, Landlord shall use diligence to cause (a) the Initial Landlord’s Work to be Substantially Completed by the Initial Landlord’s Work Target Date, and (b) the Remaining Landlord’s Work to be Substantially Completed by the Remaining Landlord’s Work Target Date. In the event that the entirety of Landlord’s Work (both Initial Landlord’s Work and the Remaining Landlord’s Work) is not Substantially Completed by February 7, 2017, for any reason other than a Tenant Delay or Force Majeure event, then the Rent Commencement Date shall be extended by one (1) day for each day of delay thereafter until the entirety of Landlord’s Work is Substantially Completed (or is deemed Substantially Completed, as set forth above).

 

3.2                               Tenant’s Work. A. Except for Landlord’s Work under Section 3.1 above, all work that is deemed necessary or desirable by Tenant to prepare the Premises for Tenants use and occupancy shall be performed by Tenant, at its expense, and in accordance with plans and specifications approved in advance by Landlord pursuant to paragraph C below (such approved work is referred to herein as “Tenant’s Work”). Following the Substantial Completion of the Initial Landlord’s Work, Tenant’s Work shall be undertaken in accordance with all of the terms and conditions of this Lease, including but not limited to subsection 6.2.5 and the Construction Rules and Regulations attached hereto as Exhibit E-l.

 

B. All subcontractors selected by Tenant for the performance of Tenant’s Work shall first be approved by Landlord in writing (which may be done via e-mail), such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed (it being agreed that Landlord shall have the right to restrict certain subcontractors from any bid lists), with such approval or disapproval to be given within five (5) business days from request. Tenant shall use Unispace as both its general contractor and architect (“Tenant’s general contractor and “Tenant’s architect”, as applicable), and R.W Sullivan as its engineer (“Tenant s engineer”) unless, in each case, Tenant receives Landlord’s consent to use another general contractor, architect or engineer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein. Tenant shall use Landlord’s roofing contractor for any work that involves penetration of the roof.

 

C. All contractors employed by Tenant shall carry the insurance coverages required under Section 4.2.4.6 below, and Tenant shall submit certificates evidencing such coverage to Landlord prior to the commencement of Tenant’s Work. All Tenant’s Work shall be performed in good and workmanlike manner in accordance with all applicable requirements and laws of the applicable authorities having jurisdiction of the Premises and in compliance with all of the requirements of subsection 6.2.5 of this Lease. Prior to applying for any building permit, Tenant shall submit to Landlord complete architectural, electrical and mechanical construction drawings, plans and specifications (“Tenant’s Plans”) necessary for the Tenant’s Work. Tenant’s Plans shall be prepared by Tenant’s architect and Tenant’s engineer, and all costs and expenses of preparing Tenants Plans

 

11


 

shall be Tenant’s sole responsibility. Landlord shall approve or disapprove in writing of any plans submitted within five (5) business days of receipt thereof. Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or condition such consent. If any of such plans are disapproved by Landlord, Landlord shall provide Tenant with specific reasons for such disapproval, and the foregoing submission process shall be repeated until all such plans have been approved by Landlord (except that for each subsequent iteration of Tenant’s Plans, such five (5) business day period shall be reduced to three (3) business days). Tenant hereby acknowledges and agrees that Landlord’s review of, and Landlord’s granting of its approval to, any plans and specifications submitted to it under this Lease shall not constitute or be deemed to constitute a judgment, representation or agreement by Landlord that such plans and specifications comply with the requirements of any legal authorities or that such plans and specifications will be approved by the Town of Burlington. Following Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s Plans, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a copy of the construction contract and its total budget for the hard and soft costs for the construction of Tenant’s Work (the “Total Costs”). Tenant shall pay any and all out-of-pocket third party fees and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with review of Tenant’s Plans.

 

D. The phrase, “Tenant Delay”, shall be defined as any delay in the completion of Landlord’s Work actually caused by (i) special work, upgrades or long lead-time items for which Landlord identifies a specified period of delay, and in either instance Tenant does not withdraw or alter such special work, upgrade, long lead-time item which avoids such delay, (ii) any changes to any plans made by Tenant, or any Work Change Order requested by Tenant, in any case for which Landlord identifies a specified period of delay at the time of its approval and for which Tenant does not withdraw such change to avoid delay, (iii) the delay of Tenant or its architects and engineers in providing or approving any plans, specifications, pricing or estimates or giving authorizations or supplying information reasonably required by Landlord or its general contractor within five (5) business days after request therefor, (v) any failure by any contractors employed by Tenant including, without limitation, contractors furnishing telecommunications, data processing or other service or equipment directly to Tenant (and not via Landlord’s contractors) to comply with the agreed-upon timetables for coordination of the parties’ respective components of work, as established at on-site progress meetings between Landlord’s representative and Tenant’s representative, (vi) any failure to comply with this Article 3, or any material interference with the performance of Landlord’s Work by Tenant or any of its agents, employees, architects, engineers or contractors (including but not limited to delays caused by the acts or omissions of Tenant or such parties), (vii) any failure of Tenant to pay for any Work Change Order or upgrade to Landlord’s Work within required time periods or (viii) Tenant’s delay in delivering the Original Letter of Credit required pursuant to Section 4.4.

 

3.3                               Mechanic’s Liens. Tenant hereby indemnifies Landlord against liability for any and all mechanic’s and other liens filed in connection with Tenant’s Work. Tenant, at its expense, shall procure the discharge of, or bond over, all such liens within ten (10) business days after receipt of notice of the filing of any such lien against the Premises. If Tenant shall fail to cause any such lien to be discharged or bonded over within the period aforesaid, then, in addition to any other right or remedy, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, discharge the same either by paying the amount claimed to be due or by deposit or bonding proceedings, and in any such event Landlord shall be entitled, if it elects, to compel the prosecution of an action for the foreclosure of such lien and to pay the amount of the judgment in favor of the lien or with interest, costs and allowances. Any amount so paid by Landlord, and all costs and expenses reasonably incurred by Landlord in connection therewith, shall constitute Additional Rent and, at Landlord’s election, shall be deducted from the TI Allowance or paid by Tenant to Landlord on demand.

 

3.4                               TI Allowance. (A) Landlord shall provide Tenant with an amount equal to the TI Allowance to be used for the construction of Tenant’s Work. The TI Allowance shall be used by Tenant for hard and soft construction costs in connection with Tenant’s Work, including architectural, engineering and construction management costs. Landlord shall disburse the TI Allowance in three (3) installments, as follows:

 

12


 

(i)                                     Upon completion of fifty percent (50%) of the Tenant’s Work, Landlord shall disburse the first (1st) installment of the TI Allowance (the “First Installment”) in an amount up to forty percent (40%) of the TI Allowance evidenced by paid invoices from Tenant’s general contractor and other direct contractors and subcontractors (“Paid Invoices”) providing servicers or supplying materials for the Tenant’s Work. Upon completion of one hundred percent (100%) of the Tenant’s Work, Landlord shall disburse the second (2nd) installment of the TI Allowance (the “Second Installment”) in an amount up to fifty percent (50%) of the TI Allowance evidenced by Paid Invoices, but in no event shall the sum of the First Installment and the Second Installment be greater than $1,244,250.00. The First Installment and the Second Installment shall be payable within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of all of the following documentation to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction:

 

a.              a conditional lien waiver for the current requisition from Tenant’s general contractor, subcontractors and suppliers performing work or providing materials to date (waiving any and all liens and rights of liens of any type through the date of the request for the applicable installment of the TI Allowance),

 

b.              a requisition for payment from Tenant’s architect in the form of AIA Document G702 for all work for which disbursement is being requisitioned,

 

c.               the submission by Tenant of a written statement from Tenant’s architect or engineer stating (a) whether there has been any change in the Total Costs (and if so, what the updated Total Costs are), and (b) that the Tenant’s Work for which payment is being requisitioned has been completed in accordance with the approved Tenant’s Plans,

 

d.              copies of paid invoices from Tenant’s general contractor, major subcontractors and supplies evidencing such hard construction costs of the Tenant’s Work for which disbursement is being requisitioned; and, as applicable, copies of paid invoices from Tenant’s architects/engineers/project managers, and any other party providing services or supplying materials, evidencing the soft costs for which disbursement is being requested, and any other information or documentation reasonably requested by Landlord, and

 

e.               with respect to the Second Installment, unconditional lien waivers for past payments from Tenant’s general contractor and all subcontractors and suppliers,

 

(ii)                                  Landlord shall disburse the third (3rd) and final installment of the TI Allowance in an amount equal to the remaining ten percent (10%) of the TI Allowance within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of all of the following documentation, to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction:

 

a.              An unconditional final waiver of lien from Tenant’s general contractor and from all subcontractors and suppliers,

 

b.              one (1) set of “as-built” plans for the Tenant’s Work in CAD File and PDF format,

 

c.               copies of paid invoices from Tenant’s general contractor, major subcontractors and suppliers evidencing such costs of the Tenant’s Work for which disbursement is being requisitioned;

 

13


 

and, as applicable, copies of paid invoices from Tenant’s architects/engineers/project managers, and any other party providing services or supplying materials, evidencing the costs for which disbursement is being requested, and a copy of the final (as opposed to temporary) certificate of occupancy for the Premises issued by the Town of Burlington and any other information or documentation reasonably requested by Landlord.

 

Any portion of the TI Allowance that is not used or claimed on or before July 31, 2017 shall accrue to Landlord. If the final actual cost of the Tenant’s Work shall be in excess of the TI Allowance, then the entire amount of such excess cost shall be paid solely by Tenant and Landlord shall be under no obligation to pay any such excess.

 

If any disbursement of the TI Allowance is not timely paid by Landlord (and provided Tenant has delivered to Landlord all documentation required and satisfied all the conditions under this Section 3.4 and Landlord has not notified Tenant that Landlord reasonably disputes the accuracy or completeness of the applicable funding request), then provided Tenant is not in default under this Lease, Tenant may deliver a second notice (an “Offset Notice”) to Landlord, which notice shall specify the funding request that has not been timely paid and state conspicuously in bold type and in all capital letters at the top of the first page of such notice and on the envelope containing such notice “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 Tenant shall deliver such second notice to Landlord as aforesaid and Landlord fails to disburse the amount of the TI Allowance expressly referenced in the Offset Notice, subject to Landlord’s right to dispute such funding request as herein provided, within such five (5) business day period, then Tenant shall have the right to have such unpaid amount of the TI Allowance credited against the next installment(s) of Fixed Rent thereafter due under this Lease provided, however, notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, in no event shall the aggregate amount of all offsets permitted hereunder in any month ever exceed twenty percent (20%) of any monthly installment of Fixed Rent. Within the thirty (30) day period following receipt of a funding request or within the additional 5-Business Day period described above. Landlord may dispute in good faith the funding request by written notice to Tenant setting forth the basis upon which Landlord disputes the accuracy or completeness of any funding request. If Landlord disputes the accuracy or completeness of any funding request, Landlord and Tenant shall reasonably cooperate with each other to resolve such dispute as expeditiously as possible, but Landlord will have no obligation to disburse any disputed amount of such funding request and Tenant will not have any right to credit or offset the disputed amount of the funding request against the Fixed Rent until the dispute has been resolved.

(c)     If Landlord shall give notice to Tenant that all rent and/or other payments due hereunder are to be made to Landlord by check, or by any other commercially reasonable means, Tenant shall make all such payments as shall be due after receipt of said notice by means as designated by Landlord, with such payments to be made to such address and to such person or entity as is specified by Landlord.

Commencing on the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant covenants and agrees to pay, as Additional Rent, insurance costs, utility charges, personal property taxes and its pro rata share of taxes and operating costs with respect to the Premises as provided in this Section 4.2 as follows:

 

4.2.1                     Real Estate Taxes. Tenant covenants to pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent, for each tax period partially or wholly included in the term, Tenant s Percentage of Taxes (as hereinafter defined). Tenant shall remit to Landlord, on the first day of each calendar month, estimated payments on account of Taxes, such monthly amounts to be sufficient to provide Landlord, by the time real estate tax payments are due and payable to any governmental authority responsible for collection of same, a sum equal to the Tenant’s Percentage of Taxes, as reasonably estimated by Landlord from time to time on the basis of the most recent tax data available. The initial calculation of the monthly estimated payments shall be based upon the Initial Estimate of Tenant’s Percentage of Taxes for the Tax Year and upon quarterly payments being due to the governmental authority on August 1, November 1, February 1 and May 1, and shall be made when the Commencement Date has been determined. If the total of such monthly remittances for any Tax Year is greater than the Tenant’s Percentage of Taxes for such Tax year, Landlord shall promptly pay to Tenant, or credit against the next accruing payments to be made by Tenant pursuant to this subsection 4.2.1. the difference; if the total of such remittances is less than the Tenant’s Percentage of Taxes for such Tax Year, Tenant shall pay the difference to Landlord at least ten (10) days prior to the date or dates within such Tax Year that any Taxes become due and payable to the governmental authority (but in any event no earlier than ten (10) business days following a written notice to Tenant, which notice shall set forth the manner of computation of Tenant’s Percentage of Taxes). This section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.

 

If, after Tenant shall have made reimbursement to Landlord pursuant to this subsection 4.2.1, Landlord shall receive a refund of any portion of Taxes paid by Tenant with respect to any Tax Year during the term hereof as a result of an abatement of such Taxes by legal proceedings, settlement or otherwise (without either party having any obligation to undertake any such proceedings), Landlord shall promptly pay to Tenant, or credit against the next accruing payments to be made by Tenant pursuant to this subsection 4.2.1, the Tenant’s Percentage of the refund (less the proportional, pro rata expenses, including attorneys’ fees and appraisers’ fees, incurred by Landlord in connection with obtaining any such refund), as relates to Taxes paid by Tenant to Landlord with respect to any Tax Year for which such refund is obtained.

 

In the event this Lease shall commence, or shall end (by reason of expiration of the term or earlier termination pursuant to the provisions hereof), on any date other than the first or last day of the Tax Year, or should the Tax Year or period of assessment of real estate taxes be changed or be more or less than one (1) year, as the case may be, then the amount of Taxes which may be payable by Tenant as provided in this subsection 4.2.1 shall be appropriately apportioned and adjusted.

 

The term “Taxes” shall mean all taxes, assessments, betterments and other charges and impositions (including, but not limited to, fire protection service fees

 

15

Taxes shall not include: excess profits taxes, franchise taxes, gift taxes, capital stock taxes, inheritance and succession taxes, estate taxes, federal and state income taxes, and other taxes applied or measured by Landlord’s general or net income (as opposed to rents, receipts, or income attributable to operations at the Building), nor any item included as Operating Costs, nor any items paid by Tenant under subsection 4.2.2. If, at any time during the term of this Lease, any tax or excise on rents or other taxes, however described, are levied or assessed against Landlord with respect to the rent reserved hereunder, either wholly or partially in substitution for, or in addition to, real estate taxes assessed or levied on the Property, such tax or excise on rents shall be included in Taxes; however, Taxes shall not include franchise, estate, inheritance, succession, capital levy, transfer, income or excess profits taxes assessed on Landlord. Taxes shall include any estimated payment made by Landlord on account of a fiscal tax period for which the actual and final amount of taxes for such period has not been determined by the governmental authority as of the date of any such estimated payment.

 

4.2.2                     Personal Property Taxes. Tenant shall pay all taxes charged, assessed or imposed upon the personal property of Tenant in or upon the Premises.

 

4.2.3                     Operating Costs. Tenant covenants to pay to Landlord the Tenant’s Percentage of Operating Costs (as hereinafter defined) incurred by Landlord in any fiscal year of Landlord (“Landlord’s Fiscal Year”). Tenant shall remit to Landlord, on the first day of each calendar month, estimated payments on account of Operating Costs, such monthly amounts to be sufficient to provide Landlord, by the end of the Landlord’s Fiscal Year, a sum equal to the Operating Costs, as reasonably estimated by Landlord from time to time. The initial monthly estimated payments shall be in an amount equal to 1/12th of the Initial Estimate of Tenant’s Percentage of Operating Costs for the Landlord’s Fiscal Year. If, at the expiration of the year in respect of which monthly installments of Operating Costs shall have been made as aforesaid, the total of such monthly remittances is greater than the actual Operating Costs for such year, Landlord shall promptly pay to Tenant, or credit against the next accruing payments to be made by Tenant pursuant to this subsection 4.2.3, the difference; if the total of such remittances is less than the Operating Costs for such year, Tenant shall pay the difference to Landlord within twenty (20) days from the date Landlord shall furnish to Tenant an itemized statement of the Operating Costs, prepared, allocated and computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Any reimbursement for Operating Costs due and payable by Tenant with respect to periods of less than twelve (12) months shall be equitably prorated. This section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease.

(Annual charge-off shall be determined by (i) dividing the original cost of the capital expenditure by the number of years of useful life thereof [The useful life shall be reasonably determined by Landlord in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and practices in effect at the time of

 

18


 

acquisition of the capital item.]; and (ii) adding to such quotient an interest factor computed on the unamortized balance of such capital expenditure based upon an interest rate reasonably determined by Landlord as being the interest rate then being charged for long-term mortgages by institutional lenders on like properties within the locality in which the Building is located.) Provided, further, that if Landlord reasonably concludes on the basis of engineering estimates that a particular capital expenditure will effect savings in Operating Costs and that such annual projected savings will exceed the annual charge-off of capital expenditure computed as aforesaid, then and in such events, the annual charge-off shall be determined by dividing the amount of such capital expenditure by the number of years over which the projected amount of such savings shall fully amortize the cost of such capital item or the amount of such capital expenditure; and by adding the interest factor, as aforesaid.

 

If during any portion of any year for which Operating Costs are being computed, the Building was not fully occupied by tenants or if not all of such tenants were paying fixed rent or if Landlord was not supplying all tenants with the services, amenities or benefits being supplied hereunder, actual Operating Costs incurred shall be reasonably extrapolated by Landlord to the estimated Operating Costs that would have been incurred if the Building were fully occupied by tenants and all such tenants were then paying fixed rent or if such services were being supplied to all tenants, and such extrapolated amount shall, for the purposes of this Section 4.2.3, be deemed to be the Operating Costs for such year.

 

Tenant shall have the right to examine, copy and audit Landlord’s books and records establishing the Operating Costs set forth in this Section 4.2.3 of this Lease, for the Landlord’s Fiscal Year immediately preceding Landlord’s year-end reconciliation statement of Operating Costs for the specific Landlord’s Fiscal Year in question. Tenant shall give Landlord at least 30 days prior written notice (the “Audit Notice”) of its intention to examine and audit such books and records, and such examination and audit shall take place at Landlord’s or Landlord’s building manager’s office no later than 120 days following Tenant’s receipt of any year-end reconciliation statement and shall be completed no later than ninety (90) days following the date Tenant was first given access to Landlord’s books and records. No subtenant shall have any right to conduct an audit. As a condition to performing any such inspection, Tenant and its examiners may be required to execute and deliver to Landlord an agreement to keep confidential any information which Tenant and the examining party discover about the Building in connection with such examination, except for disclosures required by law, court order or regulatory authorities, or to Tenant’s attorneys, accountants, auditors, or potential purchasers of the Tenant company. Tenant agrees to use for such audit a certified public accountant or an accounting firm that is not being paid on a contingency fee basis. All costs of the examination and audit shall be borne by Tenant. If, pursuant to the audit, the payments made for such year by Tenant exceed Tenant’s required payment on account thereof for such year, such overpayment shall be credited against Rent next due, or refunded to Tenant if the term of this Lease has then expired and Tenant has no further obligation to Landlord; but, if the payments made by Tenant for such year are less than Tenant’s required payment as established by the examination and audit, Tenant shall pay the deficiency to Landlord within thirty (30) days after conclusion of the examination and audit. If there is any dispute over the results of the audit, Landlord shall have ninety (90) days following receipt of the audit results to obtain an audit from an accountant of Landlord’s choice, at Landlord’s cost and expense. In the event that Landlord’s and Tenant’s accountants shall be unable to reconcile the results which thirty (30) days following completion of Landlord’s accountants’ review, then, both accountants shall mutually agree upon a third accountant whose determination shall be conclusive. The cost of any such third accountant shall be shared equally between Landlord and Tenant.

 

4.2.4                     Insurance. Tenant shall, at its expense, as Additional Rent, take out and maintain from the time Tenant first occupies the Premises for any purpose and throughout the Term the following insurance protecting Landlord:

The minimum limit of liability shall be One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) each accident, combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage naming Landlord as an additional insured on a primary and non-contributory basis.

 

4.2.4.4           All such policies shall be obtained from responsible companies having a policy rating of A- or better; X or better, as set forth in the most current issue of the Best’s Key Rating Guide and which are qualified to do business and in good standing in Massachusetts. Tenant agrees to furnish Landlord with certificates evidencing all such insurance prior to the beginning of the term hereof and evidencing renewal thereof at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of any such policy. Tenant shall provide at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Landlord should any of the policies required herein be cancelled. In the event provision for any such insurance is to be by a blanket insurance policy, the policy shall allocate a specific and sufficient amount of coverage to the Premises.

 

4.2.4.5           All insurance which is carried by either party with respect to the Building, Premises or to furniture, furnishings, fixtures, or equipment therein or alterations or improvements thereto, workmen’s compensation insurance, and all liability insurance, whether or not required, shall include provisions which either designate the other party as one of the insured or deny to the insurer acquisition by subrogation of rights of recovery against the other party to the extent such rights have been waived by the insured party prior to occurrence of loss or injury, insofar as, and to the extent that, such provisions may be effective without making it impossible to obtain insurance coverage from responsible companies qualified to do business in the state in which the Premises are located. Each party shall be entitled to have certificates of any policies containing such provisions. Each party hereby waives all rights of recovery against the other for loss or injury against which the waiving party is protected by insurance containing said provisions, reserving, however, any rights with respect to any excess of loss or injury over the amount recovered by such insurance. Tenant shall not acquire as insured under any insurance carried on the Premises, which shall include all tenant improvements (including Tenant’s Work), any right to participate in the adjustment of loss or to receive insurance proceeds and agrees upon request promptly to

endorse and deliver to Landlord any checks or other instruments in payment of loss in which Tenant is named as payee.

All policies shall be endorsed providing waiver of subrogation in favor of Landlord and Tenant. Tenant shall submit certificates evidencing such coverage to Landlord prior to the commencement of Tenant’s Work and any future alterations performed by Tenant’s contractors. Tenant shall also list Landlord and Tenant’s contractor as insureds on Tenant’s Builder’s Risk Policy.

 

4.2.5                     Utilities. A. Commencing as of the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall contract for and pay directly to the applicable public utility company all costs and charges for telephone service and for separately metered gas furnished or consumed on the Premises.

 

B. Commencing as of the date that is the earlier of the Rent Commencement Date and the date that Landlord installs the requisite submeter for such utility, Tenant shall pay directly to Landlord, as Additional Rent, estimated charges (the “Utilities Charges”) on account of Tenant’s consumption of electricity in the Premises for its lights, outlets, and HVAC systems and otherwise used by Tenant in connection with the Premises, and for water used by Tenant for ordinary cleaning, lavatory and toilet facilities or otherwise in the Premises. Landlord shall reasonably estimate the amount of Utilities Charges payable by Tenant per month and shall notify Tenant prior to the Commencement Date of the initial estimate of Utilities Charges to be paid by Tenant. Tenant shall pay the Utilities Charges on the first day of each calendar month included in the Term, in the same manner as Tenant pays Fixed Rent pursuant to Section 4.1 above. Following Landlord s receipt of utility provider invoices, Landlord will reconcile the estimated Utilities Charges paid by Tenant with the actual amounts owing from Tenant based on the number of kilowatt hours of electricity used in connection with the Premises for the preceding month as registered on the sub-meters for the Premises, and based upon sub-meter readings for water used by Tenant for ordinary cleaning, lavatory and toilet facilities or otherwise in the Premises. If it is determined Tenant has been overcharged, then such overpayment will be credited against Tenant’s account for the following month. If Tenant has underpaid, then Landlord will invoice Tenant for the amount owed and Tenant shall pay such amount within twenty (20) days after billing. Landlord reserves the right to adjust the monthly Utilities Charges from time to time based on the most current data available for Tenant’s electrical and water consumption in connection with the Premises, and Tenant shall thereafter pay the adjusted Utilities Charges to Landlord until further notice.

 

C. Tenant shall pay all charges for telephone and other utilities or services not supplied by Landlord, whether designated as a charge, tax, assessment, fee or otherwise, all such charges to be paid as the same from time to time become due. Except as otherwise provided in Article 5, it is understood and agreed that Tenant shall make its own arrangements for the installation or provision of all such utilities and that Landlord shall be under no obligation to furnish any utilities to the Premises and shall not be liable for any interruption or failure in the supply of any such utilities to the Premises.

 

4.3                               Late Payment of Rent. If any installment of Fixed Rent or other sum due Landlord is paid

 

21


 

after the date the same was due, and if on a prior occasion in the twelve (12) month period prior to the date such installment was due an installment of rent was paid after the same was due, then Tenant shall pay Landlord a late payment fee equal to five (5%) percent of the overdue payment. In addition, if any installment of rent or other sum due Landlord is not paid when due, such installment shall bear interest from the date due until paid, at the rate of 8% per year not to exceed the highest rate permitted by law.

 

4.4                               Letter of Credit. The performance of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease shall be secured by a letter of credit throughout the term hereof in accordance with and subject to the following terms and conditions:

 

4.4.1                     Amount of Letter of Credit. (a) Concurrently with Tenant’s execution and delivery of this Lease, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord an irrevocable standby letter of credit (the “Original Letter of Credit”) which shall be (i) in the form of Exhibit H attached to this Lease (the “Form LC”) or another form acceptable to Landlord, (ii) issued by Silicon Valley Bank or another commercial bank that is reasonably satisfactory to Landlord upon which presentment may be made in Boston, Massachusetts, (iii) in the amount equal to the Letter of Credit Amount, and (iv) for a term of at least 1 year, subject to the provisions of Section 4.4.2 below. The Original Letter of Credit, any Additional Letters(s) of Credit (as defined below) and Substitute Letter(s) of Credit (as defined below) are referred to herein as the “Letter of Credit.”

 

(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 4.4, provided that Tenant is not in default and has not previously been in default of its obligations under this Lease beyond any applicable grace period prior to such time, then following the first Fiscal Year (as defined below) that Tenant has net income (the “First Reduction Benchmark”), the Letter of Credit Amount may be reduced to $306,126.00. Further, provided that Tenant is not in default and has not previously been in default of its obligations under this Lease beyond any applicable grace period prior to such time, then following the second (2nd) consecutive Fiscal Year that Tenant has net income (the “Second Reduction Benchmark”), the Letter of Credit may be reduced to $153,063.00. For the avoidance of doubt, to achieve the Second Reduction Benchmark, Tenant must have net income in two (2) consecutive Fiscal Years. To the extent Tenant wishes to enact any reduction to the Letter of Credit Amount pursuant to the terms hereof, Tenant shall, on or following each such benchmark date (i.e. the First Reduction Benchmark or the Second Reduction Benchmark, as the case may be), deliver to Landlord (i) a notice requesting the applicable reduction and (ii) an audited financial statement, prepared by Tenant’s accountant using generally accepted accounting principles, evidencing to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction such net income during the applicable Fiscal Year. Provided the conditions precedent have been satisfied, then within thirty (30) days after Tenant receives written confirmation from Landlord that the conditions for reduction of the Letter of Credit have been satisfied as of the applicable benchmark date (i.e. the First Reduction Benchmark or the Second Reduction Benchmark, as the case may be), Tenant shall provide Landlord with an amendment to the Letter of Credit or a new Letter of Credit meeting all of the requirements of Section 4.4 to accomplish such authorized reduction of the Letter of Credit. Landlord shall cooperate with Tenant, at no cost to Landlord, to effectuate such reduction. In no event shall the Letter of Credit have automatic reduction provisions. In no event will the Letter of Credit Amount at any time be reduced below $153,063.00. As used herein, the term “Fiscal Year” shall mean the period of time between January 1 and December 31 of any given calendar year following the Rent Commencement Date.

 

4.4.2                     Renewal of Letter of Credit. Each Letter of Credit shall be automatically renewable in accordance with the second to last paragraph of the Form LC, provided however, that Tenant shall be required to deliver to Landlord a new letter of credit (a “Substitute Letter of Credit”) satisfying the requirements for the Original Letter of Credit under Section 4.4.1 on or before the date 30 days prior to the expiration of the term of the Letter of Credit then in effect, if the issuer of such Letter of Credit (the “Issuing Bank”) gives notice of its election not to renew

 

22


 

such Letter of Credit for any additional period pursuant thereto. Should any Letter of Credit contain a final expiration date, in addition to a current expiration date, such final expiration date shall be no earlier than 45 days following the Expiration Date of this Lease.

 

4.4.3                     Draws to Cure Defaults. If the Fixed Rent, Additional Rent or any other sum payable to Landlord hereunder shall be overdue and unpaid or should Landlord make payments on behalf of the Tenant, or Tenant shall fail to perform any of its obligations under this Lease, or should Tenant otherwise be in default under this Lease, in all cases beyond the expiration of all applicable notice and cure periods, then Landlord shall have the right, at any time thereafter to draw down from the Letter of Credit the amount necessary to cure such default. In the event of any such draw by the Landlord, Tenant shall, within 30 days of written demand therefor, deliver to Landlord an additional Letter of Credit (“Additional Letter of Credit”) satisfying the requirements for the Original Letter of Credit, except that the amount of such Additional Letter of Credit shall be the amount of such draw.

 

4.4.4                     Draws to Pay Damages. In addition, if (i) this Lease shall have been terminated as a result of Tenant’s default under this Lease beyond the expiration of the applicable cure period, and/or (ii) this Lease shall have been rejected in a bankruptcy or other creditor-debtor proceeding, then Landlord shall have the right at any time thereafter to draw down from the Letter of Credit an amount sufficient to pay any and all damages payable by Tenant on account of such termination or rejection, as the case may be, pursuant to Article 8 hereof. In the event of bankruptcy or other creditor-debtor proceeding against Tenant, all proceeds of the Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be applied first to the payment of rent and other charges due Landlord for all periods prior to the filing of such proceedings.

 

4.4.5                     Issuing Bank. In the event the Issuing Bank becomes insolvent, or if Landlord reasonably believes the Issuing Bank is financially troubled or at risk of becoming insolvent, or if the Issuing Bank is placed into receivership or conservatorship by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (or any successor or similar entity), or if a trustee, receiver or liquidator is appointed for the Issuing Bank, then, effective as of the date of such occurrence, the Letter of Credit shall be deemed to not meet the requirements of this Section 4.4 and Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days of written notice from Landlord, deliver to Landlord a Substitute Letter of Credit which otherwise meets the requirements of this Section 4.4, or, alternatively at Landlord’s discretion, Tenant shall, within such five-day period deliver cash to Landlord in the Letter of Credit Amount, which Landlord shall hold as “Security Proceeds” (as defined below) which shall be governed by subject to the provisions of subsection 4.4.6 below.

 

4.4.6                     Draws for Failure to Deliver Substitute Letter of Credit. If Tenant fails timely to deliver to Landlord a Substitute Letter of Credit, then Landlord shall have the right, at any time thereafter, without giving any notice to Tenant, to draw down the Letter of Credit and to hold the proceeds thereof (“Security Proceeds”) in a bank account in the name of Landlord, which may be withdrawn and applied by Landlord under the same circumstances and for the same purposes as if the Security Proceeds were a Letter of Credit. Upon any such application of Security Proceeds by Landlord, Tenant shall, within 30 days of written demand therefor, deliver to Landlord an Additional Letter of Credit in the amount of Security Proceeds so applied.

 

4.4.7                     Transferability. Landlord shall be entitled to transfer its beneficial interest under the Letter of Credit or any Security Proceeds in connection with (i) Landlord’s sale or transfer of the Building, or (ii) the addition, deletion or modification of any beneficiaries under the Letter of Credit, and the Letter of Credit shall specifically state on its face that it is transferable by Landlord, its successors and assigns. Tenant agrees to pay Landlord upon demand, as Additional Rent, all costs and fees charged to effect the first such transfer in any Lease Year, and Landlord shall pay the costs to effect any other transfer in such Lease Year.

 

23


 

4.4.8                     Return of Letter of Credit at End of Term. Within 45 days after the expiration of the term, to the extent Landlord has not previously drawn upon any Letter of Credit or Security Proceeds held by Landlord, Landlord shall return the same to Tenant provided that there is not at such time any continuing default of any of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease.

24


 

omission on the part of the Landlord to furnish any of same for any of the reasons set forth in this Section 5.2 shall not be construed as an eviction of Tenant, actual or constructive, nor entitle Tenant to an abatement of rent, nor render the Landlord liable in damages, nor release Tenant from prompt fulfillment of any of its covenants under this Lease. However in each instance of failure or interruption Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to restore the unavailable service or remedy the condition following written notice from Tenant.

 

B. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an event or circumstance (an “Abatement Event”) shall occur that causes an interruption or curtailment, suspension or stoppage of an Essential Service that reasonably prevents Tenant from using the entire Premises, or any material portion thereof, as a result of Landlord’s failure to provide any Essential Service (defined below) required to be provided by Landlord under this Lease, provided that such failure or Landlord’s inability to remedy such event or circumstance is not due to Force Majeure or a cause beyond Landlord’s reasonable control generally affecting other buildings in the vicinity (such as a neighborhood power outage or other off-site occurrence) or the act or negligence of Tenant, its employees, vendors, or contractors, or any party claiming by, through or under Tenant then Tenant shall give Landlord notice (an “Abatement Notice”) of any such Abatement Event. If such Abatement Event continues beyond the “Eligibility Period” (defined below), then the Monthly Fixed Rent and monthly charges on account of Operating Costs and Taxes shall be abated entirely or proportionately, as the case may be, after the expiration of the Eligibility Period for such time that Tenant continues to be so prevented from using, and does not use, the Premises or a portion thereof, in the proportion that the rentable area of the portion of the Premises that Tenant is prevented from using, and does not use, bears to the total rentable area of the Premises. Tenant shall not be entitled to any abatement of Rent if Tenant is then in default of any of its obligations under this Lease. The term “Eligibility Period” shall mean a period of five (5) consecutive business days after Landlord’s receipt of any Abatement Notice(s). For purposes hereof, the term “Essential Services” shall mean the following services required to be provided by Landlord under this Lease: water and sewer service, HVAC, gas and electricity. The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to any Abatement Event caused by fire or other damage or destruction to the Building, which shall be covered by Article 7 of this Lease.

In connection with any specialized life safety system, Tenant shall enter into a service contract with a contractor reasonably satisfactory to Landlord that shall provide for regular maintenance, testing and inspection of same.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided the same are not required by Tenant’s specific use of the Premises, or as the result of any work, alteration or improvement done by or for Tenant, then Landlord shall be responsible for making all such repairs, alterations, additions or replacements to the Building Structure and the Building Systems as required by this subsection 6.1.4, the costs of which shall be included in Operating Costs subject to the terms of this Lease.

 

6.1.5                     Indemnification.

26

All of the furnishings, fixtures, equipment, effects and property of every kind, nature and description of Tenant and of all persons claiming by, through or under Tenant which, during the continuance of this Lease or any occupancy of the Premises by Tenant or anyone claiming under Tenant, may be on the Premises, shall be at the sole risk and hazard of Tenant and if the whole or any part thereof shall be destroyed or damaged by fire, water, rain or by the leakage or bursting or other defect of water pipes, steam pipes, or other pipes, sprinklers, lighting fixtures or other cause by theft, any acts or omissions of any other tenant of the Property, or from any other cause, no part of said loss or damage is to be charged to or to be borne by Landlord, except that Landlord shall in no event be indemnified or held harmless or exonerated from any liability to Tenant or to any other person, for any injury, loss, damage or liability to the extent prohibited by law.

 

6.1.8                     Payment of Landlord’s Cost of Enforcement.

Any property not so removed shall be deemed abandoned and, if Landlord so elects, deemed to be Landlord’s property, and may be retained or removed and disposed of by Landlord in such manner as Landlord shall determine and Tenant shall pay Landlord the entire cost and expense incurred by it in effecting such removal and

 

27


 

disposition and in making any incidental repairs and replacements to the Premises and for use and occupancy during the period after the expiration of the term and prior to its performance of its obligations under this subsection 6.1.9. Tenant shall further indemnify Landlord against all loss, cost and damage resulting from Tenant’s failure and delay in surrendering the Premises as above provided if Tenant holds over past the expiration or earlier termination of the Term (the “Holdover Indemnity”). Notwithstanding the forgoing, in the event that Tenant, no earlier than forty-five and no later than thirty (30) days prior to the scheduled expiration of Term, provides Landlord with a written notice inquiring as to whether Landlord has leased, or is involved in negotiations to lease, the Premises or any part thereof to a third party, then Landlord shall provide Tenant with a written notice regarding the same (a “Holdover Notice”). In the event that Landlord indicates in the Holdover Notice that Landlord has a signed letter of intent or a lease for all or a portion of the Premises, or is engaged in negotiations with a potential tenant for all or a portion of the Premises as evidenced by a written proposal or ongoing lease negotiations, then the Holdover Indemnity shall commence immediately upon the first day following the expiration of the Term if Tenant holds over. In the event that Landlord indicates in the Holdover Notice that none of the circumstances in the immediately preceding sentence then exists, then the Holdover Indemnity shall commence on the date that is thirty (30) days after the expiration of the Term if Tenant holds over. The inclusion of the preceding sentences in this Lease should not be construed as Landlord’s consent for Tenant to hold over, and shall not apply in the event that the Lease is terminated prior to the scheduled expiration date of the Term.

 

If the Tenant remains in the Premises beyond the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, such holding over shall be without right and shall not be deemed to create any tenancy, but the Tenant shall be a tenant at sufferance only at a daily holdover rate of rent during the first thirty (30) days of such holding over equal to one and one-half (1 ½) times the Monthly Fixed Rent Rate and Additional Rent on account of Operating Costs and Taxes in effect as of the day prior to the expiration or termination of this Lease; and after the expiration of such 30-day period, at a rate equal to two (2) times the Monthly Fixed Rent Rate and Additional Rent on account of Operating Costs and Taxes last due as of the day prior to the date of expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, and shall otherwise be on the terms and conditions of this Lease as applicable, except that in no event shall any extension option, right of first offer or right of first refusal, or similar right or option be deemed applicable to such tenancy at sufferance.

in connection with Tenant’s Pet Dogs. Landlord reserves the right to enact reasonable rules and regulations in connection with Tenant’s Pet Dogs, including but not limited to banning certain breeds of dogs from access to the Premises, and the option to immediately suspend the rights granted hereunder to the extent Landlord has a good faith reason to do so. Tenant shall be solely responsible for any and all repairs related to or in connection with Tenant’s Pet Dogs. Tenant shall be required to “curb” Tenant’s Pet Dogs, including but not limited to picking up and properly disposing of Tenant’s Pet Dogs’ waste, and being conscientious about all matters of Tenant’s Pet Dogs’ excretions. In no event shall the Premises be used as a kennel, “doggy day care” or grooming facility, and in no event shall any dog, including but not limited to Tenant’s Pet Dogs, be housed in the Premises.

Any such statement delivered pursuant to this subsection 6.1.11 may be relied upon by any prospective purchaser or mortgagee of the Premises, or any prospective assignee of such mortgage. Tenant shall also deliver to Landlord such financial information as may be reasonably required by Landlord to be provided to any mortgagee or prospective purchaser of the Premises; provided, however, Tenant shall be required to provide only such financial information as is commercially reasonable. If Tenant fails to deliver the estoppel certificate within the required time period, and such failure continues for an additional five (5) days following a second written request from Landlord, then Tenant shall be obligated to pay to Landlord, as Additional Rent within twenty (20) days of demand, a fee in the amount of $500.00 per day for each day that Tenant fails to deliver the requested estoppel in the period beginning on the day after the expiration of the initial 10-day period, and ending on the day Tenant actually delivers the estoppel.

29


 

of the Premises by anyone other than Tenant without the prior written consent of Landlord. In the event Tenant desires to assign this Lease or sublet any portion or all of the Premises, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing of Tenant’s intent to so assign this Lease or sublet the Premises and the proposed effective date of such subletting or assignment, and shall request in such notification that Landlord consent thereto. Except with respect to a Permitted Transfer, Landlord may terminate this Lease in the case of a proposed assignment, or suspend this Lease pro tanto for the period and with respect to the space involved in the case of a proposed subletting for 50% or more of the Premises, by giving written notice of termination or suspension to Tenant, with such termination or suspension to be effective as of the effective date of such assignment or subletting. If Landlord does not so terminate or suspend, Landlord’s consent shall not be unreasonably withheld to an assignment or to a subletting, provided that the following conditions are met:

 

(i)                                     the assignee or subtenant shall use the Premises only for the Permitted Uses;

 

(ii)                                  with respect to a subletting, that after such subletting the initial Tenant named herein occupies at least twenty-five (25%) percent of the Rentable Floor Area of the Premises;

 

(iii)                               the proposed assignee or subtenant has a net worth and creditworthiness reasonably acceptable to Landlord;

 

(iv)                              the amount of the aggregate rent to be paid by the proposed subtenant is not less than the then current sublease market rate for the Premises; and

 

(v)                                 the proposed assignee or subtenant is not then a tenant in the Building or the Park, or an entity with which Landlord is dealing or has dealt within the preceding six months regarding the possibility of leasing space in the Building or the Park.

 

(vi)                              the proposed assignee or subtenant provides a representation and warranty regarding the Patriot Act provisions set forth in this Lease.

 

Tenant shall furnish Landlord with any information reasonably requested by Landlord to enable Landlord to determine whether the proposed assignment or subletting complies with the foregoing requirements, including without limitation, financial statements relating to the proposed assignee or subtenant.

 

B. Tenant shall, as Additional Rent, reimburse Landlord promptly for Landlord’s reasonable out-of-pocket legal expenses incurred in connection with any request by Tenant for such consent. If Landlord consents thereto, no such subletting or assignment shall in any way impair the continuing primary liability of Tenant hereunder, and no consent to any subletting or assignment in a particular instance shall be deemed to be a waiver of the obligation to obtain the Landlord’s written approval in the case of any other subletting or assignment. With respect to any assignment or subletting during the Original Term of this Lease (other than to a Permitted Transferee), such assignment shall not include the right granted to Tenant under this Section 2.3 hereinabove to extend the Term, nor the Right of First Offer right granted to Tenant under Section 2.4 above, nor the right granted to Tenant under Section 6.1.10.1 regarding Tenant’s Pet Dogs, and such sublease shall be for a term expiring no later than the Expiration Date.

 

C. If for any assignment or sublease consented to by Landlord hereunder Tenant receives rent or other consideration, either initially or over the term of the assignment or sublease, in excess of the rent called for hereunder, or in case of sublease of part, in excess of such rent fairly allocable to the part, after appropriate adjustments to assure that all other payments called for hereunder are appropriately taken into account and, after deduction for reasonable marketing expenses, free rent periods, improvement allowances, tenant improvements and demising costs incurred by Tenant in connection with the assignment or sublease

 

30


 

(with all such items to be amortized over the term of such assignment or sublease), to pay to Landlord as additional rent fifty (50%) percent of the excess of each such payment of rent or other consideration received by Tenant promptly after its receipt.

 

D. If at any time during the term of this Lease, there is a name change, Tenant shall so notify Landlord and deliver evidence reasonably satisfactory to Landlord documenting such name change. If, at any time during the Term of this Lease, there is a transfer of a controlling interest in the shares or stock of Tenant which are not publicly traded upon a stock exchange, or the membership or general partnership or other ownership interests of Tenant (any of the foregoing, an “Equity Sale”), or a restructuring or reorganization of the Tenant entity, including any spin-off, Tenant shall so notify Landlord and (whether or not Tenant so notifies Landlord) such Equity Sale, restructuring or reorganization shall be deemed an assignment of this Lease requiring Landlord’s consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided however, Landlord’s consent shall not be required with respect to any Equity Sale, and any Equity Sale will not be deemed an assignment, if (a) in the event that Ric Fulop and his management team (collectively, the “Current Management Team”) stay in place following such Equity Sale (and Tenant delivers to Landlord reasonable evidence of the same), Tenant delivers to Landlord reasonable evidence that Tenant’s Net Worth immediately after such Equity Sale will be no less than 95% of Tenant’s Net Worth immediately before such Equity Sale or (b) in the event that the Current Management Team will not stay in place following such Equity Sale, Tenant delivers to Landlord reasonable evidence that Tenant’s Net Worth will be no less than FORTY-FIVE MILLION and 00/100 DOLLARS ($45,000,000.00) immediately after such Equity Sale. For the avoidance of doubt, neither of the following will require Landlord’s consent nor will be deemed an assignment: (a) any transfer of shares or stock of Tenant which are publicly traded upon a stock exchange, and (b) any transfer of any other shares or stock of Tenant, or the membership or general partnership or other ownership interests of Tenant, which (in the case of (b)) does not constitute the transfer of a controlling interest in Tenant. “Controlling interest” shall mean having ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding voting stock of a corporation or other majority equity and control interest if not a corporation and the possession of power to direct or cause the direction of the management of such corporation or other entity. “Tenant’s Net Worth” means Tenant’s assets less Tenant’s liabilities, and shall be determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and certified by the accountant(s) that prepared such statement(s).

 

E. The following terms and conditions shall apply to any subletting by Tenant of all or any part of the Premises and shall be deemed included in all subleases under this Lease whether or not expressly incorporated therein:

 

(i)                                     Tenant hereby assigns and transfers to Landlord all of Tenant’s interest in all rentals and income arising from any sublease of all or a portion of the Premises heretofore or hereafter made by Tenant, and Landlord may collect such rent and income and apply same toward Tenant’s obligations under this Lease; provided, however, that until a default by Tenant hereunder shall occur under this Lease, Tenant may, except as otherwise provided in this Lease, receive, collect and enjoy the rents accruing under such sublease. Landlord shall not, by reason of this or any other assignment of such sublease to Landlord, nor by reason of the collection of the rents from a subtenant, be deemed liable to the subtenant for any failure of Tenant to perform and comply with any of Tenant’s obligations to such subtenant under such sublease. Tenant hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs any such subtenant, upon receipt of a written notice from Landlord stating that a default hereunder exists under this Lease, to pay to Landlord the rents and other charges due and to become due under the sublease. The subtenant shall rely upon any such statement and request from Landlord and shall pay such rents and other charges to Landlord without any obligation or right to inquire as to whether such breach exists and notwithstanding any notice from or claim from Tenant to

 

31


 

the contrary. Tenant shall have no right or claim against said subtenant, or, until the breach has been cured, against Landlord, for any such rents and other charges so paid by said subtenant to Landlord.

 

(ii)                                  In the event of a default by Tenant in the performance of its obligations under this Lease that results in a termination of this Lease, Landlord, at its option and without any obligation to do so, may require any subtenant to attorn to Landlord, in which event Landlord shall undertake the obligations of the sublandlord under such sublease from the time of the exercise of said option to the expiration of such sublease; provided, however, Landlord shall not be liable for any prepaid rents or security deposit paid by such subtenant to Tenant or for any other prior defaults or breaches of Tenant as sublandlord under such sublease.

 

F. Any other provision of this subsection 6.2.1 notwithstanding, Tenant shall have the right, without Landlord’s prior written consent and without any right of Landlord to terminate this Lease to assign this Lease or sublease the Premises to an entity (each a “Permitted Transferee”) which is either a parent of Tenant, controlled by Tenant or under common control with Tenant, provided Tenant remains primarily liable under this Lease and so long as Tenant notifies Landlord of the assignment or subletting and delivers reasonable proof of the affiliation to Landlord. “Control” for the purposes hereof shall mean ownership of 50% or more of all financial interest and 50% or more of the voting interest of a corporation, and any other majority equity interest and control interest if not a corporation. A transaction for which consent from the Landlord is not required pursuant to this subparagraph F shall be referred to in this Lease as a Permitted Transfer”. In the event of any Permitted Transfer, Tenant shall remain primarily liable under this Lease and any assignee shall agree directly with Landlord, by written instrument in form satisfactory to Landlord, to assume and perform all the obligations of Tenant under this Lease.

 

6.2.2                     Nuisance. Not to injure, deface or otherwise harm the Premises; nor commit any nuisance; nor permit in the Premises any vending machine (except such as is used for the sale of merchandise to employees of Tenant) or inflammable fluids or chemicals (except in accordance with the terms of Article 11 of this Lease), nor permit any cooking to such extent as requires special exhaust venting; nor permit the emission of any objectionable noise or odor; nor make, allow or suffer any waste; nor make any use of the Premises which is improper, offensive or contrary to any law or ordinance or which will invalidate any of Landlord s insurance, nor conduct any auction, fire, “going out of business” or bankruptcy sales.

6 2.4                     Floor Load: Heavy Equipment.

Business machines and mechanical equipment which cause vibration or noise shall be placed and maintained by Tenant at Tenant’s expense in settings approved of in advance by Landlord sufficient to absorb and mitigate such vibration and noise, so that any reasonable person outside of the Premises would not be annoyed by such vibration and noise. Tenant shall not move any safe, heavy machinery, heavy equipment, freight or fixtures into or out of the Premises except in such manner and at such time as Landlord shall in each instance authorize.

 

6.2.5                     Installation, Alterations or Additions. Not to make any installations, alterations or additions in, to or on the Premises nor to permit the making of any holes in the walls, partitions, ceilings or floors nor the installation or modification of any locks or security devices without on each occasion obtaining the prior written consent of Landlord, and then only pursuant to plans and specifications approved by Landlord in advance in each instance, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. Landlord shall give Tenant notice, in reasonable detail, of any objections or concerns Landlord may have with respect to any proposed installation, alteration or addition. Landlord shall not be deemed

 

32


 

unreasonable for withholding approval of any proposed installation, alteration or addition that (i) involves or might affect the Building Structure or exterior element of the Building or any portion thereof, and/or (ii) might, in Landlord’s reasonable opinion, materially adversely affect the value of the Building or any portion thereof, and/or (iii) might materially adversely affect the proper functioning of the Base Building Systems and/or (iv) is visible from outside of the Premises and/or is not within the interior of the Premises and/or (v) involves penetration of the roof or exterior walls.

Tenant agrees to employ for any work one or more responsible contractors of whom Landlord has given prior approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), and whose labor will work without interference with other labor working on the Property, and to cause such contractors employed by Tenant to comply with the insurance requirements set forth in Section 4.2.4.6 above. All contractors insurance shall name Landlord and its managing agent and any mortgagee as additional insureds on a primary and non-contributory basis, and indemnifying the parties so named against claims for death or injury to persons or damage to property claimed to have occurred in the Premises or on the property. Tenant shall cause its contractors to submit certificates evidencing such coverage to Landlord prior to the commencement of any work. Tenant shall pay promptly when due the entire cost of any work to the Premises undertaken by Tenant so that the Premises shall at all times be free of liens for labor and materials, and at Landlord’s request Tenant shall furnish to Landlord a bond or other security acceptable to Landlord assuring that any work commenced by Tenant will be completed in accordance with the plans and specifications theretofore approved by Landlord and assuring that the Premises will remain free of any mechanics’ lien or other encumbrance arising out of such work. In any event, Tenant shall within ten (10) days of notice from Landlord bond against or discharge any mechanics’ liens or other encumbrances that may arise out of such work. If Tenant shall fail to cause any such lien to be discharged within such ten (10) day period, then in addition to any other available right or remedy. Landlord may discharge the same, either by paying the amount claimed to be due, or by bonding or otherwise. Any amount so paid, and all costs and expenses so incurred by Landlord in connection therewith, shall constitute Additional Rent hereunder. Tenant shall procure all necessary licenses and permits at Tenant’s sole expense before undertaking such work. All such work shall be done in a good and workmanlike manner employing materials of good quality and so as to conform with all applicable zoning, building, fire, health and other codes, regulations, ordinances and laws. Tenant shall save Landlord harmless and indemnified from all injury, loss, claims or damage to any person or property occasioned by or growing out of such work, and any liability, loss, cost, damage and expense of every kind and nature incurred by reason of, or arising out of any and all mechanic’s and other liens filed in connection with any alterations or improvements.

33


 

or Tenant defaults in its obligations to Secured Party, then (i) Secured Party will remove the Collateral within ten (10) business days after notice from Landlord of the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, or within ten (10) business days after Secured Party notifies Landlord that Secured Party has the right to remove the Collateral on account of Tenant’s default in its obligations to Secured Party, (ii) Secured Party will restore the area affected by such removal, and (iii) that a failure to so remove the Collateral will subject such property to the provisions of subsection 6.1.9 of the Lease.

Tenant shall not install the Compactor in the Compactor Area without Landlord’s (and, if required, the Town of Burlington’s) prior approval of the manner of and plans and specifications for such installation and screening if reasonably required by Landlord. If such installation shall result in an increase in premiums for Landlord’s insurance coverage for the Building, then Tenant shall be liable for the increase as Additional Rent hereunder.

ARTICLE 7

Casualty or Taking

 

7.1                               Termination. In the event that the Premises or the Building, or any material part thereof, shall be taken by any public authority or for any public use, or shall be destroyed or damaged by fire or casualty, or by the action of any public authority, then this Lease may be terminated at the election of Landlord. Such election, which may be made notwithstanding the fact that Landlord’s entire interest may have been divested, shall be made by the giving of notice by Landlord to Tenant within sixty (60) days after the date of the taking or casualty. In the event that (a) the Premises are substantially destroyed or damaged by fire or casualty, or by the action of public authority during the original term, and, in the reasonable opinion of an independent architect or engineer selected by Landlord, cannot be repaired or restored within three hundred (300) days from the date the repair or restoration work would commence, and/or (b) the net proceeds of insurance recovered, or damages awarded for such taking, destruction or damage, are insufficient to allow Landlord to restore the Premises pursuant to the terms of Section 7.2 below, and Landlord elects not to restore the Premises, then this Lease may be terminated at the election of Tenant, which election shall be made by the giving of notice to Landlord (x) within thirty (30) days after the date the opinion of the architect or engineer is made available to the parties in the case scenario (a) above, and (y) within ten (10) days of Landlord informing Tenant of the scenario in (b) above, which notice shall specify the effective date of termination, which shall not be less than thirty (30) nor more than sixty (60) days after the date of Tenant’s termination notice. Landlord shall endeavor to deliver the architect’s opinion to Tenant (or statement with regard to the insufficiency of proceeds/damages awarded and Landlord’s election not to restore, as applicable) within forty-five (45) days following the casualty or taking.

 

7.2                               Restoration. If Landlord does not elect to so terminate, this Lease shall continue in force and a just proportion of the rent reserved, according to the nature and extent of the damages sustained by the Premises, shall be suspended or abated until the Premises, or what may remain thereof, shall be put by Landlord in proper condition for use, which Landlord covenants to do with reasonable diligence to the extent permitted by the net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded for such taking, destruction or damage and subject to zoning and building laws or ordinances then in existence. Net proceeds of insurance recovered or damages awarded” refers to the gross amount of such insurance or damages less the reasonable expenses of Landlord incurred in connection with the collection of the same, including without limitation, fees and expenses for legal and appraisal services. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if Landlord shall not have restored the Premises within three hundred (300) days from the date such restoration work commenced (subject to Section 10.5 hereof), and such failure is not a result of delays caused by Tenant, Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by giving notice of such termination to Landlord, effective at the expiration of thirty (30) days from the giving of such notice; provided however, that such termination will be rendered ineffective if, prior to the expiration of said 30-day period, Landlord shall have completed such restoration.

 

7.3                               Award. Irrespective of the form in which recovery may be had by law, all rights to damages or compensation shall belong to Landlord in all cases. Tenant hereby grants to Landlord all of Tenant’s rights to such damages and covenants to deliver such further assignments 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 relocation expenses, provided that such action shall not affect the

 

36


 

amount of compensation otherwise recoverable by Landlord from the taking authority.

 

ARTICLE 8

Defaults

 

8.1                               Events of Default. (a) If Tenant shall default in the performance of any of its obligations to pay the Fixed Rent, Additional Rent or any other sum due Landlord hereunder and if such default shall continue for ten (10) days after written notice from Landlord designating such default or if within thirty (30) days after written notice from Landlord to Tenant specifying any other default or defaults Tenant has not commenced diligently to correct the default or defaults so specified or has not thereafter diligently pursued such correction to completion, or (b) if any assignment shall be made by Tenant in violation of the provisions of subsection 6.2.1 of this Lease, or (c) if any assignment shall be made by Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant for the benefit of creditors, or (d) if Tenant’s leasehold interest shall be taken on execution, or (e) if a lien or other involuntary encumbrance is filed against Tenant’s leasehold interest or Tenant’s other property, including said leasehold interest, and is not discharged within thirty (30) days thereafter, or (f) if a petition is filed by Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant for liquidation, or for reorganization or an arrangement under any provision of any bankruptcy law or code as then in force and effect, or (g) if an involuntary petition under any of the provisions of any bankruptcy law or code is filed against Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant and such involuntary petition is not dismissed within thirty (30) days thereafter, then, and in any of such cases, Landlord and the agents and servants of Landlord lawfully may, in addition to and not in derogation of any remedies for any preceding breach of covenant, immediately or at any time thereafter without demand or notice and with process of law enter into and upon the Premises or any part thereof in the name of the whole and repossess the same as of landlord’s former estate and expel Tenant and those claiming through or under Tenant and remove its and their effects without being deemed guilty of any manner of trespass and without prejudice to any remedies which might otherwise be used for arrears of rent or prior breach of covenants, and/or Landlord may terminate this Lease by sending written notice of termination to Tenant and this Lease shall terminate and come to an end on the date of entry as aforesaid, or on the third (3rd) day following the giving of such notice as fully and completely as if such date were the date originally fixed for expiration of the Term of this Lease. Tenant will quit and surrender the Premises to Landlord, but shall remain liable as herein provided. Tenant hereby waives all statutory rights to the Premises (including without limitation rights of redemption, if any, granted under any present or future laws to the extent such rights may be lawfully waived). Landlord, without notice to Tenant, may store Tenant’s effects, and those of any person claiming through or under Tenant, at the expense and risk of Tenant, and, if Landlord so elects, may sell such effects at public auction or private sale and apply the net proceeds to the payment of all sums due to Landlord from Tenant, if any, and pay over the balance, if any, to Tenant. No termination or repossession provided for in this Section 8.1 shall relieve Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant of the liabilities and obligations of Tenant under this Lease, all of which shall survive any such termination or repossession.

 

8.2                               Remedies. A. In the event of termination or repossession, Tenant covenants to pay punctually to Landlord Fixed Rent, Additional Rent and all other sums for which Tenant is obligated in this Lease to pay and in the same manner and to the same extent and at the same time as if this Lease had not been terminated. In calculating the amounts to be paid by Tenant pursuant to the preceding sentence, Tenant shall be credited with any amount paid to Landlord as compensation as set forth below in this Section 8.2 and also with the net proceeds of any rent obtained by Landlord by reletting the Premises, after deducting all Landlord’s expense in connection with such reletting, including, without limitation, all repossession costs, brokerage commissions, reasonable attorney’s fees, and expenses of preparing the Premises for such reletting.

 

B. Landlord may elect to (i) relet the Premises or any part or parts thereof, for a term or terms which may be equal to or less than or exceed the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the Term and may grant such concessions and free rent as Landlord in its sole judgment considers advisable or necessary to relet the same and/or (ii) make such alterations, repairs and decorations in the Premises as Landlord in its sole judgment considers advisable or necessary to relet the same and no action of Landlord in

 

37


 

accordance with the foregoing or failure to relet or to collect rent under reletting shall operate or be construed to release or reduce Tenant’s liability as aforesaid. However, Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to re-let the Premises after Tenant vacates the Premises once this Lease is terminated on account of a default by Tenant. For the purposes of this paragraph, marketing of the Premises in a manner similar to the way Landlord markets its other premises in the suburban market shall be deemed to satisfy Landlord’s obligation to use such “reasonable efforts.” In no event shall Landlord be required (i) to solicit or entertain negotiations with any other prospective tenants for the Premises until Landlord obtains full and complete possession of the Premises including, without limitation, the undisputed right to re-let the Premises free of any claim of Tenant, (ii) to lease the Premises to a tenant whose proposed use, in Landlord’s bona fide judgment, would violate any restrictions by which Landlord is bound, (iii) to re-let the Premises before leasing other comparable vacant space in the Building, (iv) to lease the Premises for a rental less than the current fair market rental then prevailing for similar office space in the Building, or (v) to enter into a lease with any proposed tenant that does not have, in Landlord’s reasonable opinion, sufficient financial resources or operating experience to operate the Premises in a manner comparable to other tenants in the Building. In no event, however, shall Tenant’s liability hereunder be diminished or reduced if or to the extent such reasonable efforts of Landlord to re-let are not successful.

 

C. If this Lease is terminated under any of the provisions contained in Section 8.1, at the election of Landlord, and in lieu of full recovery by Landlord of the sums payable under the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.2 (except for the amount of any rent of any kind accrued and unpaid at the time of termination), Landlord may by written notice to Tenant, elect to recover, and Tenant shall thereupon pay forthwith to Landlord, as compensation, an amount equal to the present value of the amount by which the payments of Fixed Rent and Additional Rent payable for balance of the Term would exceed the fair rental value of the Premises for the balance of the Term. In calculating the rent reserved there shall be included, in addition to the Fixed Rent and Additional Rent, the value of all other considerations agreed to be paid by Tenant for the balance of the Term.

 

D. Nothing contained in this Lease shall, however, limit or prejudice the right of Landlord to prove for and obtain in proceedings for bankruptcy or insolvency by reason of the termination of this Lease, an amount equal to the maximum allowed by any statute or rule of law in effect at the time when, and governing the proceedings in which, the damages are to be proved, whether or not the amount be greater than, equal to, or less than the amount of the loss or damages referred to above.

 

8.3                               Remedies Cumulative. Any and all rights and remedies which Landlord may have under this Lease, and at law and equity, shall be cumulative and shall not be deemed inconsistent with each other, and any two or more of all such rights and remedies may be exercised at the same time insofar as permitted by law.

 

8.4                               Landlord’s Right to Cure Defaults. Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, cure, at any time, without notice, any default by Tenant under this Lease; and whenever Landlord so elects, all costs and expenses incurred by Landlord, including reasonable attorneys fees, in curing a default shall be paid, as Additional Rent, by Tenant to Landlord on demand, together with lawful interest thereon from the date of payment by Landlord to the date of payment by Tenant.

 

8.5                               Effect of Waivers of Default. Any consent or permission by Landlord to any act or omission which otherwise would be a breach of any covenant or condition herein, shall not in any way be held or construed (unless expressly so declared) to operate so as to impair the continuing obligation of any covenant or condition herein, or otherwise, except as to the specific instance, operate to permit similar acts or omissions.

 

8.6                               No Waiver, etc. The failure of Landlord to seek redress for violation of, or to insist upon the strict performance of, any covenant or condition of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such violation nor prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having all the force and effect of an original violation. The receipt by Landlord of rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant of this Lease shall not be deemed to have been a waiver of such breach by Landlord. No consent or

 

38


 

waiver, express or implied, by Landlord to or of any breach of any agreement or duty shall be construed as a waiver or consent to or of any other breach of the same or any other agreement or duty.

 

8.7                               No Accord and Satisfaction. No acceptance by Landlord of a lesser sum than the Fixed Rent, Additional Rent or any other charge then due shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest installment of such rent or charge due, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as rent or other charge 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 installment or pursue any other remedy in this Lease provided.

 

ARTICLE 9

Rights of Mortgage Holders

 

9.1                               Rights of Mortgage Holders. The word “mortgage” as used herein includes mortgages, deeds of trust or other similar instruments evidencing other voluntary liens or encumbrances, and modifications, consolidations, extensions, renewals, replacements and substitutes thereof. The word “holder” shall mean a mortgagee, and any subsequent holder or holders of a mortgage. Until the holder of a mortgage shall enter and take possession of the Property for the purpose of foreclosure, such holder shall have only such rights of Landlord as are necessary to preserve the integrity of this Lease as security. Upon entry and taking possession of the Property for the purpose of foreclosure, such holder shall have all the rights of Landlord. No such holder of a mortgage shall be liable either as mortgagee or as assignee, to perform, or be liable in damages for failure to perform, any of the obligations of Landlord unless and until such holder shall enter and take possession of the Property for the purpose of foreclosure. Upon entry for the purpose of foreclosure, such holder shall be liable to perform all of the obligations of Landlord, subject to and with the benefit of the provisions of Section 10.4, provided that a discontinuance of any foreclosure proceeding shall be deemed a conveyance under said provisions to the owner of the equity of the Property.

 

The covenants and agreements contained in this Lease with respect to the rights, powers and benefits of a holder of a mortgage (particularly, without limitation thereby, the covenants and agreements contained in this Section 9.1) constitute a continuing offer to any person, corporation or other entity, which by accepting a mortgage subject to this Lease, assumes the obligations herein set forth with respect to such holder; such holder is hereby constituted a party of this Lease as an obligee hereunder to the same extent as though its name were written hereon as such; and such holder shall be entitled to enforce such provisions in its own name. Tenant agrees on request of Landlord to execute and deliver from time to time any agreement which may be necessary to implement the provisions of this Section 9.1.

 

9.2                               Lease Superior or Subordinate to Mortgages. It is agreed that the rights and interest of Tenant under this Lease shall be (i) subject or subordinate to any present or future mortgage or mortgages and to any and all advances to be made thereunder, and to the interest of the holder thereof in the Premises or any property of which the Premises are a part if Landlord shall elect by notice to Tenant to subject or subordinate the rights and interest of Tenant under this Lease to such mortgage or (ii) prior to any present or future mortgage or mortgages, if Landlord shall elect, by notice to Tenant, to give the rights and interest of Tenant under this Lease priority to such mortgage; in the event of either of such elections and upon notification by Landlord to that effect, the rights and interest of Tenant under this Lease should be deemed to be subordinate to, or have priority over, as the case may be, said mortgage or mortgages, irrespective of the time of execution or time of recording of any such mortgage or mortgages (provided that, in the case of subordination of this Lease to any future mortgages, the holder thereof agrees not to disturb the possession of Tenant so long as Tenant is not in default hereunder). Tenant agrees it will, upon not less than ten (10) days’ prior written request by Landlord, execute, acknowledge and deliver any and all instruments deemed by Landlord necessary or desirable to give effect to or notice of such subordination or priority. Tenant also agrees that if it shall fail at any time to execute, acknowledge and deliver any such instrument requested by Landlord, Landlord may, in addition to any other remedies available to it, execute, acknowledge and deliver such instrument as the attorney-in-fact

 

39


 

of Tenant and in Tenant’s name; and Tenant does hereby make, constitute and irrevocably appoint Landlord as its attorney-in-fact, coupled with an interest with full power of substitution, and in its name, place and stead so to do. Any Mortgage to which this Lease shall be subordinated may contain such terms, provisions and conditions as the holder deems usual or customary.

 

ARTICLE 10

Miscellaneous Provisions

 

10.1                        Notices from One Party to the Other. All notices required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and addressed, if to the Tenant, at the Original Notice Address of Tenant or such other address as Tenant shall have last designated by notice in writing to Landlord and, if to Landlord, at the Original Notice Address of Landlord or such other address as Landlord shall have last designated by notice in writing to Tenant. Any notice shall be deemed duly given upon receipt or rejection when mailed to such address postage prepaid, by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, or on the next business day when delivered to such address by hand or when delivered to such address by hand.

 

10.2                        Quiet Enjoyment. Landlord agrees that upon Tenant’s paying the rent and performing and observing the agreements, conditions and other provisions on its part to be performed and observed, Tenant shall and may peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Premises during the term hereof without any manner of hindrance or molestation from Landlord or anyone claiming under Landlord, subject, however, to the terms of this Lease.

 

10.3                        Lease not to be Recorded. Tenant agrees that it will not record this Lease. Both parties shall, upon the request of either, execute and deliver a notice or short form of this Lease in such form, if any, as may be permitted by applicable statute. Tenant hereby irrevocably appoints Landlord as Tenant’s attorney-in-fact (which appointment shall survive termination of the term of this Lease) with full power of substitution to execute, acknowledge and deliver a notice of termination of lease in Tenant’s name if Tenant fails, within 10 days after request therefor, to either execute, acknowledge or deliver such notice of termination or give Landlord written notice setting forth the reasons why Tenant is refusing to deliver such notice of termination.

 

10.4                        Limitation of Landlord’s Liability. The term “Landlord” as used in this Lease, so far as covenants or obligations to be performed by Landlord are concerned, shall be limited to mean and include only the owner or owners at the time in question of the Property, and in the event of any transfer or transfers of title to said property, the Landlord (and in case of any subsequent transfers or conveyances, the then grantor) shall be concurrently freed and relieved from and after the date of such transfer or conveyance, without any further instrument or agreement of all liability as respects the performance of any covenants or obligations on the part of the Landlord contained in this Lease thereafter to be performed, it being intended hereby that the covenants and obligations contained in this Lease on the part of Landlord, shall, subject as aforesaid, be binding on the Landlord, its successors and assigns, only during and in respect of their respective successive periods of ownership of said leasehold interest or fee, as the case may be. Tenant, its successors and assigns, shall not assert nor seek to enforce any claim for breach of this Lease against any of Landlord’s assets other than Landlord’s interest in the Property and in the rents, issues and profits thereof, and Tenant agrees to look solely to such interest for the satisfaction of any liability or claim against Landlord under this Lease, it being specifically agreed that in no event whatsoever shall Landlord (which term shall include, without limitation, any general or limited partner, trustees, beneficiaries, officers, directors, managers, members or stockholders of Landlord) ever be personally liable for any such liability.

 

10.5                Force Majeure. In any case where either party hereto is required to do any act, delays caused by or resulting from Acts of God, war, civil commotion, fire, flood or other casualty, labor difficulties, shortages of labor, materials or equipment, government regulations, unusually severe weather, or other causes beyond such party’s reasonable control (any of the foregoing causes being referred to herein as “Force Majeure”) shall not be counted in determining the time during which work shall be completed, whether

 

40


 

such time be designated by a fixed date, a fixed time or a “reasonable time,” and such time shall be deemed to be extended by the period of such delay. Tenant’s inability to pay any sums due Landlord hereunder shall in no way be affected or excused by any of the foregoing causes and shall in no event be deemed a Force Majeure event.

 

10.6                        Landlord’s Default. Landlord shall not be deemed to be in default in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder unless it shall fail to perform such obligations and such failure shall continue for a period of thirty (30) days or such additional time as is reasonably required to correct any such default after written notice has been given by Tenant to Landlord (and to all mortgagees of which Tenant has notice) specifying the nature of Landlord’s alleged default. Notwithstanding any provision contained herein, in no event shall Landlord ever be liable to Tenant, or any person claiming by, through or under Tenant, for any special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages, or for any lost profits. Tenant shall have no right to terminate this Lease for any default by Landlord hereunder and no right, for any such default, to offset or counterclaim against any rent due hereunder.

 

10.7                        Brokerage. Tenant warrants and represents that it has dealt with no broker in connection with the consummation of this Lease, other than NAI Hunneman (the “Broker”), and in the event of any brokerage claims, other than by the Broker against Landlord predicated upon prior dealings with Tenant, Tenant agrees to defend the same and indemnify and hold Landlord harmless against any such claim.

 

10.8                        Applicable Law and Construction: Merger; Jury Trial. This Lease shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and, if any provisions of this Lease shall to any extent be invalid, the remainder of this Lease shall not be affected thereby. This Lease and the Exhibits attached hereto and forming a part hereof constitute all the covenants, promises, agreements, and understandings between Landlord and Tenant concerning the Premises and the Building and there are no covenants, promises, agreements or understandings, either oral or written, between them other than as are set forth in this Lease. Neither Landlord nor Landlord’s agents shall be bound to any representations with respect to the Premises, the Building or the Property except as herein expressly set forth, and all representations, either oral or written, shall be deemed to be merged into this Lease. The titles of the several Articles and Sections contained herein are for convenience only and shall not be considered in construing this Lease. Tenant shall and does hereby waive trial by jury in any action, proceeding, or claim brought by or against Landlord regarding any matter arising out of or in any way connected with this Lease, the relationship of Landlord and Tenant or Tenant’s use or occupancy of the Premises. Unless repugnant to the context, the words “Landlord” and “Tenant” appearing in this Lease shall be construed to mean those named above and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns, and those claiming through or under them respectively. If there be more than one person or entity named as tenant, the obligations imposed by this Lease upon Tenant shall be joint and several.

 

10.9                        Consents. With respect to any provision of this Lease which either provides or is held to provide that Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold or unreasonably delay any consent or approval, Tenant shall not be entitled to make any claim for, and Tenant hereby expressly waives, any claim for damages, it being understood and agreed that Tenant’s sole remedy therefor shall be an action for specific performance.

 

10.10                 Authority. In the event the Tenant is a corporation, partnership or limited liability company, Tenant hereby represents and warrants that: (i) the Tenant is a duly constituted corporation, partnership or limited liability company, as the case may be, qualified to do business in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; (ii) the person executing this Lease is duly authorized to execute and deliver this Lease on behalf of said corporation(s), partnership(s) or limited liability company(ies); and (iii) the by-laws or other documentation of Tenant authorize Tenant to enter into this Lease.

 

10.11                 Counterparts. This Lease shall not be valid and binding until executed and delivered by Landlord and may be executed in multiple counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument. Any facsimile or other electronic transmittal of original signature versions of this Lease shall be considered to have the same legal effect as execution and delivery of the original

 

41


 

document and shall be treated in all manner and respects as the original document.

 

10.12                 USA Patriot Act. Tenant represents, warrants, and covenants that neither Tenant nor any of its partners, officers, directors, members or shareholders, assignees, or subtenants (i) is listed on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List maintained by the Office of Foreign Asset Control, Department of the Treasury (“OFAC”) pursuant to Executive Order No. 13224, 66 Fed. Reg. 49079 (Sept. 25, 2001) (“Order”) and all applicable provisions of Title III of the USA Patriot Act (Public Law No. 107-56 (October 26, 2001)); (ii) is listed on the Denied Persons List and Entity List maintained by the United States Department of Commerce; (iii) is listed on the List of Terrorists and List of Disbarred Parties maintained by the United States Department of State, (iv) is listed on any list or qualification of “Designated Nationals” as defined in the Cuban Assets Control Regulations 31 C.F.R.

No. 101-513; the United Nations Participation Act, 22 U.S.C. § 2349 as-9; The Cuban Democracy Act, 22 U.S.C. §§ 6001- 10; The Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act, 18 U.S.C. §§ 2332d and 233; and The Foreign Narcotic Kingpin Designation Act, Publ. L. No. 106-120 and 107-108, all as may be amended from time to time); or any other applicable requirements contained in any enabling legislation or other Executive Orders in respect of the Order (the Order and such other rules, regulations, legislation or orders are collectively called the “Orders”); (vi) is engaged in activities prohibited in the Orders; or (vii) has been convicted, pleaded nolo contendere, indicted, arraigned or custodially detained on charges involving money laundering or predicate crimes to money laundering, drug trafficking, terrorist-related activities or other money laundering predicate crimes or in connection with the Bank Secrecy Act (31 U.S.C. §§ 5311 et. seq.).

 

10.13                 Execution and Delivery. This Lease shall only become effective and binding upon full execution hereof by Landlord and Tenant, and delivery of a signed copy to Tenant.

ARTICLE 11

Hazardous Materials

 

11.1                        No Releases of Hazardous Materials. Tenant covenants and agrees not to use, release, dispose, manufacture, store, or transport any Hazardous Materials (hereinafter defined) at, on, under or from the Premises and the Property except in compliance with any and all laws, regulations, ordinances or orders promulgated, and as may be amended, by any governmental authority having jurisdiction over Hazardous Materials or the Property (collectively, “Legal Requirements”), and except for those Hazardous Materials used in the ordinary course of Tenant’s business, but only in compliance with all applicable Legal Requirements and any reasonable requirements of Landlord (such as requirements for fencing or other locked enclosures). Tenant shall comply with all governmental reporting requirements with respect to Hazardous Materials and all chemicals and flammable substances (in whatever form) used by Tenant in its business operations, and shall deliver to Landlord copies of all such reports. In the event that a release or threat of release of Hazardous Materials occurs at, from or upon the Premises or Property during the term of this Lease, Tenant shall at its expense perform all actions required under any and all applicable Legal Requirements to assess, contain, remove or respond to such release or threat of release; provided, however, that Tenant’s work or actions hereunder shall be subject to Landlord’s prior approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. The term “Hazardous Materials” shall mean any and all materials defined or classified as “hazardous materials” “hazardous waste,” “hazardous substance,” “toxic substances,” “hazardous pollutant,” “toxic pollutant”, contaminant, or “oil” or words of similar import under any applicable local, state or federal law and/or under the regulations adopted or publications promulgated pursuant thereto, including, but not

 

42


 

limited to, 42 U.S.C. §9601 et. seq. (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. §6901 et. seq. (RCRA), M.G.L. c. 21C or M.G.L. c. 21E, all as amended.

 

11.2                        Notices of Release of Hazardous Materials. Tenant shall promptly notify Landlord in writing of all spills, releases or threat of release of Hazardous Materials caused by or involving Tenant or its business operations, and all notices, orders, fines or communications of any kind received by Tenant from any governmental authority or third party concerning the presence or suspected presence of Hazardous Materials on the Premises or the Property, the migration or suspected migration of Hazardous Materials from the Premises or the Property to other property, or the migration or suspected migration of Hazardous Materials from other property to the Premises or the Property.

 

11.3                        Landlord’s Right to Inspect. Landlord, its officers, employees, contractors and agents shall have the right, but not the duty, to inspect areas of the Premises to determine whether Tenant is complying with CERCLA, RCRA, Chapter 21C, Chapter 2IE, and other state and federal environmental laws, or regulations promulgated pursuant to any of the foregoing, as amended. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenant’s business, but shall not be liable for any interference caused thereby, provided Landlord shall have used such reasonable efforts. Landlord shall reasonably cooperate with Tenant so that, except in the case of emergencies, Tenant’s representative may accompany such persons who enter the Premises for such inspection(s).

 

11.4                        Landlord’s Right to Audit. Tenant shall permit Landlord, its employees and its agents (including its environmental consultant), access to all areas of the Premises, from time to time during the term, for the purposes of conducting an environmental assessment or inspection during regular business hours, or during other hours either by agreement of the parties or in the event of an environmental emergency. In the event Landlord shall exercise its rights under this Section 11.4, Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenant’s business, but shall not be liable for any interference caused thereby, provided Landlord shall have used such reasonable efforts. Landlord shall reasonably cooperate with Tenant so that, except in the case of emergencies, Tenant’s representative may accompany such persons who enter the Premises for such audit(s).

 

11.5                        Tenant Audit. Landlord shall have the right, from time to time, during the term of this Lease, and upon the expiration of the term of this Lease, to require that Tenant hire, and in such event, Tenant shall at its own expense hire, an environmental consultant satisfactory to Landlord to undertake an environmental assessment, inspection and/or sampling at the Premises and/or Property to determine whether Hazardous Materials have been released during the term of the Lease.

 

11.6                        Remediation. Should the assessment, inspection or sampling performed pursuant to Sections 11.4 or 11.5 above, or any other assessment, inspection or sampling, reveal that there has been a release or threat of release of Hazardous Materials by Tenant or its employees, agents or contractors, then Tenant shall, at its expense, undertake all remediation and/or response action required by Landlord and any governmental authority, and Tenant shall promptly thereafter restore any areas damaged or affected by such remediation and/or response action.

 

11.7                        Tenant’s Reporting Requirements: Management and Safety Plan. Tenant has submitted to Landlord a list that specifies the materials, substances and chemicals that Tenant will use or store on the Premises in the ordinary course of its business as of the Commencement Date. Such list is attached to this Lease and incorporated herein as Exhibit I. Tenant shall provide Landlord with an updated list every six (6) months, and any additions thereto will be subject to the approval of Landlord, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Within thirty (30) days after the Date of this Lease, Tenant shall prepare and deliver to Landlord and Landlord’s environmental consultant a so-called “Chemical Management and Facility Safety Plan.” Tenant shall operate its business at the Premises in accordance with the procedures and practices set forth in such Plan, and shall promptly remedy from time to time any practices, procedures or conditions, at Tenant’s expense, that violate, or which in the reasonable judgment of Landlord or its consultant, would with the passage of time violate, the provisions of this

 

43


 

Article 11.

 

11.8                        Indemnification. Tenant agrees to indemnify and save Landlord harmless from all claims, liability, loss or damage arising on account of the use, release, threat of release, holding, handling, transport, storage, or disposal of Hazardous Materials by Tenant, its employees, agents or contractors at, on, upon or from the Premises or Property from and after the Date of this Lease, including, without limitation, liability under any federal, state, or local laws, requirements and regulations, or damage to any of the systems of the Building or the Property. The provisions of this Section 11.8 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
