1.       PREMISES

1.01Description of Premises. Licensor hereby licenses to Licensee, and Licensee hereby licenses from Licensor, a portion of the Building, as specified in the Memorandum of License and further described in Exhibit "A" attached hereto (the "Premises"). The Licensor reserves the right to verify the exact area of the Premises by using the BOMA standard (ANSI-Z65.1-1980) for measurement of multi-ten ant's space. This License does not include any exterior portion of the Building. This License does not grant any right to light or air, over or about, the Premises or Building.
1.02Condition of Premises. Effective with the Commencement Date, the Premises shall be in the condition detailed in Exhibit A-I, if any. By occupying the Premises, Licensee acknowledges that it has had full opportunity to examine the Building, including the Premises, and is fully informed, independently of Licensor, as to the character, construction and structure of the Building and of the Premises. It is agreed that by occupying the Premises, Licensee formally accepts the same in its "As is" condition, and acknowledges that Licensor has complied with all requirements imposed upon it under the terms of this License.

 

1.03Access. Licensee shall, at all times, during the Term of the License, have full and unimpaired access to the Premises and to all parking areas, walkways, access ways and other common areas of the Building. Appurtenant to the License are the rights of ingress and egress to the Premises, the right in common with others to use the elevators and common passageways, stairways and vestibules in the Building and the right to go through and park on that portion of structure owned by Licensor, designated by it for parking purposes and Licensed to Licensee.
1.04Parking. Licensee shall have the number of parking spaces allotted for its exclusive use as detailed in the Memorandum of License during business hours but excluding during special events, which might occur periodically. Licensee's use of the parking spaces are included in the Base Rent as specified in the Memorandum of License; which may change from time to time with previous notice; additional parking spaces shall be available subject to Licensor’s availability, on a month to month basis, at a rate mutually agreed. Parking spaces shall be located adjacent to the Building. There are no special designated areas for Licensee's customers. Licensee shall have to pay the prevailing one-time rate for each access card and/or beeper for the parking facility it procures from Licensor. Any violation by Licensee's employees may, at Licensor's option (exercisable in its reasonable discretion), result in the loss of parking privileges for any employees, within 24-hours' notice. Licensor reserves the right to deactivate, with previous 24-hour's notice, the access cards and/or beepers in the event Licensee defaults on the monthly payment for said parking space and/or any term of the License.

 

1.05Occupancy Share. Stated in the Memorandum of License is the ratio of the Available Square Feet of the Premises to the total Available Square feet of the Building. Licensor has informed Licensee that the Available Area of the Building is 14,103 square feet. Licensor reserves the right to increase or decrease the total available square feet of the Building; if this were to occur the total available area of the Building shall be measured, thus, the occupancy ratio will be amended so as to reflect the changes to the Building. If a portion(s) of the Building (but not the entire Building) is sold, transferred or conveyed, Licensee's Share will be changed to that percentage which shall be equal to a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the square feet of the area of the Premises, and the denominator of which shall be the aggregate available square feet of office space of Premises in that portion of the Building owned by Licensor at such time (and form time to time), as reasonably determined by Licensor's architect.

 

1.06Relocation. Licensor, at its cost, shall have the right at any time during the term of this License Agreement, to relocate Licensee from the Premises to another space within the Building, reasonably convenient, adapted to the same purpose and of an equal value to the Premises. In the event Licensor exercises its right to relocate, Licensee shall surrender its actual Premises at the request of Licensor, provided that the substitute space is ready for Licensee's occupancy. Notwithstanding the above, Licensor shall make its best efforts to relocate Licensee to premises similar to Licensee's current existing Premises. In case of relocation, Licensee will have the option, but not the obligation, to terminate this License without penalty by written notice within fifteen (15) days of Licensor's relocation notice. In any case, Licensor shall reimburse Licensee for the improvements made and paid by Licensee, which shall be depreciated on a straight line basis based on the Term of this License. The improvements total costs shall be conditioned to evidence of invoices and expenses previously provided by Licensee according to this License, after taking into account Licensor's License Fee Rebates. If Licensee decides to terminate the License it shall vacate the Premises within sixty (60) days of Licensee's termination notice.

 

1.07Right of Entry.

Licensee's notice shall detail the needed repairs Licensor understands are required within the Premises (if any). If Licensee is not present to open and permit entry into the Premises, Licensor or Licensor’s agents may enter the same whenever such entry may be necessary or permissible (including for trash pickup or to provide other services as specified herein) by master key or other means. Reasonable care will be exercised to safeguard Licensee's property. Such entry shall not be construed as an illegal entry by Licensor or its agents. In case of an emergency, Licensor shall endeavor to notify Licensee before entering the Premises. If entry is the result of this section (i), (ii) and (iii), Licensor shall provide Licensee a report of any work performed within the Premises. During the last month of the Term, if Licensee shall have removed all or substantially all of Licensees property from the Premises, Licensor may terminate this License and immediately or at any time thereafter enter, alter, renovate or redecorate the Premises without limitation or abatement of License Fee, or incurring liability to Licensee for any compensation, and such act shall have no effect on this License or Licensee's obligations hereunder.
2.TERM
2.01Initial Term. The term of this License (the "Term") shall commence on the Commencement Date and expire on the Termination Date, both specified in the Memorandum of License. The expiration of the Term or the sooner termination of this License, pursuant to its provisions, is referred to in this License as the "License Termination". If the Commencement Date depends upon an uncertain or undefined date at the time of this contract's execution (for example, substantial completion of construction), then Licensor shall notify Licensee in writing the Commencement Date, which shall be the date of delivery of possession of the Premises. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Licensor shall reserve the right to require Licensee to relinquish occupancy of the Premises for a period of 24 hours once every 365 days.
3.LICENSE FEE
3.01Base License Fee. Licensee shall pay to Licensor in advance, without demand and without deduction, abatement, or setoff, as ''Base License Fee" the amount specified in the Memorandum of License in twelve equal monthly installments, on the first day of each month of the Term of the License, beginning on the Commencement Date. If the Commencement Date falls on any day which is not the first of the month, then the Base License Fee shall be apportioned for the balance of that month, and from thereon, it shall be paid on the first day of each and every month during the Term of this License. All additional costs, charges, expenses and payments detailed in this License Agreement which are on Licensee's account (including, but not limited to, Operating and Maintenance Expenses, Services, Utilities and Taxes), shall be deemed Additional License Fee. In the event that Licensee fails to timely pay such Additional License Fee, Licensor shall have all of the rights and remedies with respect thereto as are provided for herein or by applicable law in the case of non-payment of Monthly Base License Fee.

 

3.02Additional License Fee. As provided in the Memorandum of License, Licensee shall pay to Licensor as Additional License Fee its pro-rata share of Licensor's estimated Operating Expenses for the current calendar year the "Estimated Operating Expenses" in twelve equal monthly installments, in advance, on the first day of each month of the Term, beginning on the Commencement Date. Within the first three months following the end of each calendar year or following the License Termination, as the case may be, Licensor shall provide to Licensee an invoice (the “Invoice") for the difference between the Estimated Operating Expenses paid by Licensee as provided above and Licensee's pro-rata share of Licensor's Actual Operating Expenses for such calendar year. The Invoice shall include in reasonable detail all computations of the Additional License Fee. Licensee shall pay the Invoice for the Additional License Fee within thirty days following receipt of it. Commencing on January 1st of the following calendar year and from thereon, on each and every first day of the calendar year during the Term of this License, Licensee shall pay to Licensor, without demand, deduction, abatement or set-off, as "Additional License Fee", its pro-rata share of the Actual Operating Expenses incurred by Licensor for the preceding calendar year. The Invoice shall reflect the adjustments of the previous months and for any month following the Invoice, Licensee must pay the new pro-rata share stated therein.

 

3.03Late Payment. Licensee covenants to pay the Base and Additional License Fee as herein set forth, when due and without notice, demand, abatement, deduction, or setoff in lawful money of the United States. If any installment of Monthly Base License Fee or any Additional License Fee is not paid within ten (10) calendar days ("Grace Period") after such installment of Monthly Base or Additional License Fee has become due, Licensee shall also pay to Licensor without demand a late charge at the rate stated in the Memorandum of License thereon from the due date until such installment is fully paid ("Late Charge"). Such Late Charge shall be due and payable as Additional License Fee with the next month's License Fee. Licensor shall have all the rights and remedies provided herein for monetary defaults to recover from Licensee any unpaid Late Charge. Any Late Charge payable by Licensee pursuant to this License shall be calculated from the day such expenditure is made or obligation is incurred until the date when such payment is finally and completely paid by Licensee to Licensor.

 

No payment by Licensee or receipt by Licensor of a lesser amount than the Monthly Base License Fee and Additional License Fee stipulated in this License shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest stipulated Monthly Base License Fee or Additional License Fee, nor shall endorsement or statement on any check or in any letter accompanying any check or payment, prejudice Licensor's right to recover the balance of such Monthly Base License Fee and Additional License Fee or pursue any other remedy provided in this License, at law or in equity. Payment will first be applied towards the unpaid License Fee and then to interest until paid in full.

 

3.04Additional License Fee Adjustment Mechanism. Following the furnishing of the Invoice for Additional License Fee due for a prior calendar year, Licensee shall pay Licensor in the event of an increase:

 

(1)Any unpaid amount of Licensee's Pro-rata Share of any increase in the Licensor's Operating Expenses over the Estimated Operating Expenses paid by Licensee for the prior calendar year;

 

(2)A sum equal to one-twelfth of the Licensee's Pro-rata Share of such increase multiplied by the number of months then elapsed since January 1st of the then current calendar year;

 

(3)Thereafter, until the next Additional License Fee invoice or statement of account shall be rendered, the monthly Additional Payment under this License shall be increased, by an amount equal to one twelfth of the Licensee's share of such increase in the Additional License Fee.

 

In the case of a decrease in the Additional License Fee, the Licensee shall be entitled to:

 

(1)Credit for any decrease due for Additional License Fee by reason of having paid for the same in excess in the monthly License Fee payment during the prior calendar year;

 

(2)Credit against the monthly License Fee payment a sum equal to one twelfth of the Licensee's share of such decrease multiplied by the number of months then elapsed since January 1st of the then current calendar year;

 

To this effect, any such amounts to be reimbursed by Licensor to Licensee under one (1) and two (2) above, shall be deducted from Licensee's next monthly License Fee payment and if the credit was larger than said monthly License Fee payment, any balance shall be deducted from the following License Fee payments, and

 

(1)Thereafter, until the next Additional License Fee invoice or statement of account shall be rendered, the monthly Additional Payment under this License shall be decreased, by an amount equal to one twelfth of the Licensee's share of such decrease in the Additional License Fee.

 

3.05Final Year Adjustment. If this License terminates on any day other than the thirty-first (31st) day of December, the Additional License Fee payable for the year of License Termination shall be prorated. During the year of the License Termination, Licensor may, in lieu of an end-of-year accounting, bill Licensee for the year's Additional License Fee based upon the previous year's increase or decrease in the Operating Expenses. Licensor shall, in that event, send the Invoice to Licensee at least thirty (30) days prior to the License Termination,

 

3.06License Fee is Net. Licensee agrees that all charges in respect of the Premises are absolutely net to Licensor after payment of all expenses and charges, and that Licensee is responsible to pay for all costs and expenses of every kind or nature whatsoever associated with the Premises, which shall be borne by Licensee, except for debt service of Licensor and as otherwise specifically set forth herein.

(b)In the event that Licensor should apply any part of the Security Deposit to cure any default of Ten ant, Licensee shall, upon demand, deposit with Licensor the amount so applied so that Licensor shall have the full Security Deposit on hand at all times during the License Tenn.

However, if the Premises Impositions or assessed value is not separately shown on the tax bill, or is not readily determinable from the assessor's records, then the Impositions allocable to the Premises for purposes of this paragraph shall be determined by multiplying the amount of Impositions on all of the buildings and improvements located in the Building by Licensee's Occupancy Share.

2.Licensee shall pay all Impositions on the Land. Licensee's Impositions on the Land shall be determined by multiplying the amount of Impositions on the Land by Licensee's Occupancy Share.

 

(b)Impositions shall not include late payment penalties or interest due as a result of Licensor's late payment of any Impositions. In the event Licensee has paid punctually its pro rata share of the property taxes applicable to the Premises, it shall not be responsible for any penalties or interest, assessed to the Premises, Building and/or the Licensor for late payment, nor shall such penalties or interest be included in the computation of Operating Expenses and shall include all available discounts for early payment.

Any amendment or new regulations shall become effective six (6) days after notice to Licensee.

 

(f)Licensee acknowledges that Licensor will suffer irreparable injury in the event of a breach of any of the covenants it makes in this Section and agrees that, in the event of such breach, Licensor shall be entitled, in addition to any other remedies, to an injunction to restrain the violation thereof.

Licensee shall promptly correct any faulty or improper Alteration or repairs made by Licensee or by Persons within Licensee's Control, and shall repair any and all damage caused thereby. If Licensee fails to make such corrections and repairs within thirty (30) days' notice from Licensor to Licensee (except in an emergency, in which case no notice shall be required), Licensor may make such corrections and repairs and charge Licensee for the reasonable and actual cost thereof.
