Options to Extend

Provided Tenant is not in default beyond any applicable grace or cure period of any of its obligations under the Lease at the time it exercises its option, Tenant shall have the right, provided (i) this Lease has not been terminated pursuant to the provisions of this Lease or otherwise, and (ii) in respect of any extended term after the first extended term, this Lease has been extended for the prior extended term, to elect to extend the term of this Lease for three (3) terms of five (5) years (each such term being hereinafter called "Extended Term"), each Extended Term to be upon the same terms, covenants and agreements as in this Lease provided, except Tenant shall have no further right to extend the term of this Lease for any period beyond the expiration of the third Extended Term. If Tenant so elects to extend the term of this Lease, Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord of such election at least twelve months prior to the date of expiration of the Original Term or any Extended Term, as the case may be.

(b) The option may be exercised only by Tenant giving written notice to Landlord of Tenant's said option by certified mail, return receipt requested, not less than twelve (12) months prior to the Expiration Date of the Original Term or of any Extended Term (the "Exercise Notice"). If Tenant shall not give Landlord the Exercise Notice at the time and in the manner set forth herein, the option shall terminate and be deemed waived by Tenant. Time is of the essence as to the date for the giving of each Exercise Notice.

(c) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Article 3, if on the date that Tenant exercises the option, or if on any subsequent date up to and including the date upon which the extension of the Term commences, Tenant is in default, beyond any applicable notice and grace periods, in the payment of Minimum Annual Rent or additional rent hereunder, or any other term or condition of this Lease, Tenant's exercise of the Option and the extension of the Term contemplated thereby shall, at the option of Landlord exercised by written notice to Tenant, be rendered null and void and shall be of no further force and effect and Tenant shall have no other additional right to exercise such Option, which shall be deemed waived by Tenant.

(d) If Tenant exercises the Option, then, at Landlord's request, Tenant agrees within fifteen (15) business days after request is made, to execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord an instrument in form and substance satisfactory to Landlord, confirming (i) the fixed annual rent payable under this Lease, (ii) the expiration date of the term, and (iii) the other modifications provided for in this Article 3, but no such instrument shall be required in order to make the provisions hereof effective.


Covenant to Pay Fixed Rent or Minimum Annual Rent

A. Fixed Rent

Subject to the provisions of this Article, Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord, during the Original Term and any Extended Term, in equal monthly installments in advance without prior demand and without any set off or deduction whatsoever on the first day of each calendar month at the address of Landlord as hereinabove set forth or such other address as Landlord may designate, Minimum Annual Rent ("Fixed Rent or Minimum Annual Rent" ) as follows:





The parties acknowledge and agree that this Lease is and is intended to be a triple net lease and the parties hereto intend that Landlord shall receive all Minimum Annual Rent and all additional rent payable hereunder free and clear of any and all liability or responsibility of Landlord for impositions, taxes, liens, charges or expenses, offsets, or similar deductions of any nature whatsoever. Tenant shall pay all costs, expenses and damage which are attributable to Tenant or the ownership, use or possession of the Demised Premises and which, except for the execution of this Lease, would have been chargeable against the Demised Premised or otherwise payable by the Landlord. Tenant understands and agrees that Landlord is to have no obligation whatsoever under this Lease or otherwise in respect of the repair, operation, maintenance and/or replacement of the Demised Premises or for the quality or compliance with applicable law of its construction (or in either case, the lack thereof) with all such obligations being those of the Tenant, at its sole cost and expense.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Tenant shall not be responsible for the Landlord's income taxes, debt service attributable to any mortgage, deed of trust or other instrument, nor any depreciation.
