All work shall be accomplished by LESSOR in a good and workmanlike and lien-free fashion and in accordance with all laws and permits whether or not insurance proceeds are sufficient.

If the improvements on the Leased Premises shall be damaged or destroyed as a result of a casualty or hazard, to the extent that restoration costs as estimated by LESSEE would exceed fifty percent (50%) of their then value (as determined by LESSEE), then LESSEE shall have the right to cancel this Lease by giving to LESSOR five (5) days’ written notice thereof prior to commencement of restoration. If such right is exercised, this Lease shall wholly cease and expire on the date specified in such notice. All taxes, rents, and other charges shall be prorated and paid to the date specified in such notice of cancellation.


11.           CONTINUATION OF LEASE. Except as otherwise provided in this Lease, this Lease shall not terminate or be affected in any manner by reason of the damage or destruction, by fire or other casualty, in whole or in part, of the Leased Premises.


12.           LIABILITY INSURANCE.

14.           ALTERATIONS.


a.            LESSEE, at its sole cost and expense, any at any time and from time to time may make improvements, alterations and additions provided, however, that no structural alterations or non-structural alterations in excess of $50,000 per alteration shall be made unless LESSOR shall first have given written approval of the plans and specifications therefore, and unless LESSEE shall first have secured all necessary building permits. All such alterations, modifications, additions, or installations, except trade fixtures, when made, shall become, the property of LESSOR and shall remain upon said Leased Premises as a part thereof at the end of the Term of this Lease. LESSOR agrees not to unreasonably withhold, condition or delay consent to any such alterations, modifications, additions, improvements or installations. If the LESSEE should make any such alterations, LESSEE hereby agrees to indemnify and defend LESSOR from any liability which LESSOR may sustain as a direct consequence thereof.


b.            Notwithstanding anything contained in this Lease to the contrary, all counters, shelving, equipment, furniture, trade fixtures, signs, or other personal property of whatever kind and nature kept or installed by or at the expense of LESSEE or owned by LESSEE, and all other erections, additions, and/or improvements made to, in or on the Leased Premises by and at the expense of LESSEE and susceptible of being removed from the Leased Premises without substantial damage thereto, shall remain the property of LESSEE and LESSEE may remove the same or any part thereof at any time or times during the Term hereof, provided, however, that LESSEE shall promptly cause, at LESSEE's sole cost and expense, the repair in a good and workmanlike manner of any damage to the Leased Premises caused by any such removal. Upon written request of LESSEE or LESSEE's assignees, LESSOR shall execute and deliver any real estate consent or waiver forms submitted by any vendors, lessors, chattel mortgages, or holders or owners of any counter, shelving, equipment, furniture, trade fixtures, signs, or other personal property of whatever kind and nature kept or installed at the expense of LESSEE on the Leased Premises, acknowledging the fat that LESSOR waives, in favor of such vendor, lessor, chattel mortgagee, or any holder or owner, any landlord liens, other liens, claims, interests or other rights superior to that of such vendor, lessor, chattel mortgagee, owner, or holder. LESSOR shall further acknowledge that property covered by such consent or waiver forms is personal property and is not to become a part of the realty no matter how affixed thereto and that such property may be removed from the Leased Premises by the vendor, lessor, chattel mortgagee, owner, or holder at any time upon default in the terms of such chattel mortgage or other similar documents, free and clear of any claim or lien of LESSOR, provided the vendor, lessor, chattel mortgagee, or any holder or owner shall repair damage caused by such removal(s). Notwithstanding the foregoing, LESSOR shall not be required to inquire into the validity of any such consent or waiver executed by LESSOR nor shall LESSOR be liable to LESSEE for any loss or damage suffered by LESSEE on account of LESSOR’S execution of any such document.


c.            Closing Escrow. At the Closing of the sale of the purchase between LESSOR (Purchaser) and LESSEE (Seller), LESSEE shall escrow from its proceeds of such sale with Old Republic Title (“Title Company”) as the title company approved by LESSOR and LESSEE, certain funds to be used by LESSEE to pay for certain work by LESSEE on the Leased Premises as set forth herein. The amount escrowed shall be $1,500,000.00.

As LESSEE proceeds with all or any portion of the Improvement Work with LESSOR reasonable supervision (to the extent LESSOR elects to supervise), funds shall be released from escrow to LESSEE or directly to LESSEE’S contractors as reasonably determined by LESSEE upon delivery by Lessee of invoices and lien waivers for the completed Improvement Work or portion of Improvement Work (which lien waivers may be final or partial and which may be condition on payment). Upon the substantial completion of the components of the Improvement Work, any remaining funds in such escrow shall be immediately released to LESSEE.





15.            LIENS. LESSEE shall not do nor allow anything to be done whereby the Leased Premises, or any part thereof, may be encumbered by a mechanic's lien or similar lien, and if, whenever and as often as any mechanic's or other similar lien is filed against the Leased Premises, or any part thereof, purporting to be for or on account of any labor done or materials or services furnished in connection with any work in or about the Leased Premises, done by, for, or under the authority of LESSEE, or any claiming by, through or under it, LESSEE shall have the right to contest by appropriate proceedings, the amount, validity, or application of any lien arising therefrom provided that (i) such proceedings shall suspend the collection thereof, (ii) no part of the Leased Premises or of the rent would be subject to loss, sale, or forfeiture before termination of any contest, (iii) LESSOR would not be subject to any criminal liability for failure to pay, and (iv) such proceedings shall not affect the payment of rent hereunder or prevent LESSEE from using the Leased Premises for its intended purposes. LESSEE shall conduct such contest in good faith and with due haste and diligence and shall, promptly after the final determination of such contest, pay, and discharge all amounts which shall be determined to be payable by LESSEE therein.


16.            CARE OF PREMISES. LESSEE shall not perform any acts or carry on any practices which may injure the Leased Premises, and shall keep the Leased Premises in a reasonably clean condition in accordance with the applicable laws, directions, rules, and regulations of the governmental agencies having jurisdictions, at the sole cost and expense of LESSEE; and in all respects LESSEE shall comply with all requirements of law applicable to the Leased Premises.

LESSOR shall not be liable for any damages or injuries caused by water, rain, snow, or steam which may leak into, enter, percolate or flow into the Leased Premises from any part of the building, or from the pipes thereof, or from any source whatever, for any damages or injuries caused by other tenants or LESSOR, for damages or injuries caused by fires or explosions from any cause whatsoever, for damages or injuries caused by falling plaster, dampness, any overflow, or leaking into the Leased Premises from the plumbing, gas, water, sewage pipes or the bursting thereof, or for any theft or burglary in or about the Leased Premises.


18.            INDEMNITY. LESSEE shall indemnify and hold LESSOR harmless from and against all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions, suits, costs, charges, and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, which may be imposed upon or incurred by or asserted against LESSOR arising from any use or condition of the Leased Premises after the commencement of this Lease attributable to the negligence or willful misconduct of LESSEE or LESSEE's employees, customers, agents, invitees, licensees, and guests. In the event that any action or proceeding shall be brought against LESSOR by reason of any claim above referred to for which LESSEE is expressly responsible under this Section 18, LESSEE, upon written notice from LESSOR, shall at LESSEE's sole cost and expense defend the same. LESSOR shall not be liable for any damage to or theft of any personal property, good, commodities, or materials in or about the Leased Premises.


19.            CONDEMNATION. If the whole of the Leased Premises, or such portion thereof as will make the Leased Premises unsuitable for the purposes herein leased, shall be taken for any public or any quasi-public use under any statute or by right of eminent domain, or by private purchase in lieu thereof, then LESSEE may terminate this Lease, and the rent shall be apportioned as of that date. Such termination shall be without prejudice to the rights of either LESSOR or LESSEE to recover compensation from the condemning authority for any loss or damage caused by such condemnation. Neither LESSOR nor LESSEE shall have any rights in or to any award made to the other by the condemning authority. In the case of any governmental action not resulting in the taking or condemnation of any portion of the Leased Premises but creating a right to compensation therefore, such as, without limitation, the changing of the grade of any street upon which the Leased Premises abuts, or if less than fee title to all or any portion of the Leased Premises shall be taken or condemned by any governmental authority for temporary use or occupancy, this Lease shall continue in full force, except that the rent due hereunder during any such temporary use or occupancy by any governmental authority shall be equitably apportioned for the duration of such use or occupation in proportion to the extent to which there is an ascertainable interference with the operation of LESSEE's business and the rights of LESSOR and LESSEE shall be unaffected by any of the other provisions of this Lease.





20.            ASSIGNMENT/SUBLEASE. LESSEE may not assign this Lease or sublet the entirety of the Leased Premises to any person or entity that is not affiliated with or otherwise related to LESSEE without this prior written consent of LESSOR, which said consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, except as related to or resulting from a merger involving LESSEE or the sale of all or part of the stock, membership interests, other ownership interests or assets of LESSEE. LESSEE may freely sublet or license parties of the Leased Premises consisting of less than the entirety of the Leased Premises and may assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise grant security interests in this Lease to LESSEE’S lenders. LESSOR shall, within 30 days of written request execute and deliver any landlord consent and/or landlord lien waiver requested by LESSEE’S lenders that have or intend to secure a loan in whole or in part with a security interest in LESSEE’S personal property, inventory or trade fixtures.

(iii)LESSEE shall file a voluntary petition in bankruptcy or shall be adjudicated a bankrupt or insolvent, or shall file any petition or answer seeking or acquiescing in any reorganization, arrangement, composition, readjustment, liquidation, dissolution or similar relief for itself under any present or future federal, state or other statute, law or regulation relating to bankruptcy, insolvency or other relief for debtors; or shall seek or consent to or acquiesce in the appointment of any trustee, receiver or liquidator of LESSEE or of any or all of its assets, revenues, issues or profits, or shall make any general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or LESSEE shall make any offer of settlement, extension or composition to its creditors; or

25.            CONTINUED LIABILITY. No such expiration of this Lease shall relieve LESSEE of this liability for obligations that accrued prior to such expiration under this Lease, and such liability for obligations that accrued prior to expiration shall survive any such expiration. In the event of any such expiration, LESSEE shall pay to LESSOR the rent and additional rent required to be paid by LESSEE up to the time of such expiration:

It is agreed and understood that with respect to any services to be furnished or repairs to be performed or other obligations by either party during the Term of this Lease, the party shall not be liable for delays in performance when delayed by any cause beyond the reasonable control of such party such as strike, lockout, breakdown, accident, order, or regulation of or by any governmental authority, or failure of supply, or inability, by the exercise of reasonable diligence, to obtain supplies, parts or employees necessary to furnish such services, or because of war or other emergency, or for any cause due to any act of neglect of the other party hereto, or successor in interest to such other party. The time within which such services shall be performed or services rendered shall be extended for a period of time equivalent to the delay for such cause.





34.            SUBORDINATION. This Lease shall be subject and subordinate at all times to the lien of any LESSOR's mortgage or deed of trust executed after the date hereof encumbering the Leased Premises, or any part thereof without the necessity of any further instrument or act on the part of LESSEE to effectuate such subordination. LESSEE covenants and agrees to execute and deliver upon demand such instrument or instruments necessary to subordinate this Lease to the lien of any deed of trust as shall be desired by any institutional lender or such lender’s standard forms with edits reasonably requested by LESSEE; provided such instrument included non-disturbance protection reasonably requested by LESSEE.


35.            EFFECT OF WAIVER. Any waiver by LESSOR of any breach of this Lease, or of its rights hereunder, shall not constitute a waiver of any other breach or of any other right.


36.            LAW. The law of Missouri shall govern the construction, performance and enforcement of this Lease.


37.            TIME OF ESSENCE. Time shall be of the essence in the performance of every term, covenant and condition of this Lease.


38.            CAPTIONS. The paragraph captions are inserted for convenience of reference and are in no way to be construed as a part of this Lease or as a limitation on the scope of the paragraph to which they refer.


39.            BENEFIT. This Lease shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.


40.            ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES. Each party agrees at any time, and from time to time, upon not less than thirty (30) days' prior request by the other, to execute, acknowledge, and deliver to the other a statement in writing certifying that this Lease has not been and, if such is the fact, is in full force and effect (or, if there have been modifications, stating the modifications, and if such is the fact, that the Lease as modified is in full force and effect), and if such is the fact, that there are no known defaults thereunder or, if there are, specifying the same and any offsets, counterclaims, or defenses being claimed and dates to which the rent and other charges have been paid, it being intended that any such statement delivered pursuant to this paragraph may be relied upon by any prospective purchaser of LESSOR’S interest in the Leased Premises, any potential lender or assignee of LESSEE or any prospective holder of a mortgage or by any other properly interested patty. The execution, acknowledgment, and delivery of any such statement shall not, however, affect any claim or right of action of the party executing, acknowledging or delivering the same as against the other party hereto or as against any other person, firm or corporation and such statement may contain a reservation that such claim or right of action is not waived or released thereby.


41.            MEMORANDUM OF LEASE. This Lease shall not be recorded, provided, however, LESSOR shall, upon demand by LESSEE, execute and deliver to LESSEE a memorandum of this Lease in proper form reasonably acceptable to LESSEE, for the purpose of recording, but such memorandum shall not in any circumstances be deemed to modify or change any of the provisions of this Lease, the provisions of which shall in all instances prevail. LESSEE shall bear any and all costs associated with recording such memorandum.


42.            COUNTERPARTS. This Lease may be executed in multiple counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which, when taken together, shall constitute but one and the same instrument. An electronic transmission of an image of this Lease showing a signature, such as a .pdf, will have the same binding effect as an original bearing an original signature. No party may raise the use of a facsimile machine, electronic mail or other image transmission device or method or the fact that any signature was transmitted as an image as a defense to the enforcement of this Lease.





IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereunto have executed this Lease as of the day and year first above written.
