If such portion of the Building or Project is so taken or sold so as to require, in the opinion of Landlord, a substantial alteration or reconstruction of the remaining portions thereof, or which renders the Building or Project economically unviable for its use as presently intended, or requires cancellation of substantially all tenant leases in the Building, this Lease may be terminated by Landlord, as of the date of the vesting of title under such taking or sale, by written notice to Tenant within sixty (60) days following notice to Landlord of the date on which said vesting will occur. Except as provided herein, Tenant shall not because of such taking assert any claim against Landlord or the taking authority for any compensation because of such taking, and Landlord shall be entitled to receive the entire amount of any award without deduction for any estate or interest of Tenant.

In such event, Landlord shall promptly proceed to restore the Premises to substantially their condition prior to such partial taking, and the rent shall be abated in proportion to the time during which, and to the part of the Premises of which, Tenant shall be so deprived on account of such taking and restoration. Nothing contained in this Article 11 shall be deemed to give Landlord any interest in, or prevent Tenant from seeking any award against the taking authority for, the taking of personal property and fixtures belonging to Tenant or for relocation or business interruption expenses recoverable from the taking authority. Nothing in this paragraph shall prohibit Tenant from making a claim on its behalf against any public authority for damages Tenant incurs as a result of a taking or exercise of the right of eminent domain.
11.2 Temporary Taking. If all or any portion of the Premises are condemned or otherwise taken for public or quasi-public use for a limited period of time, this Lease shall remain in full force and effect and Tenant shall continue to perform all of the terms, conditions and covenants of this Lease, including without limitation, the payment of Basic Rent and all other amounts required hereunder.

If any such temporary condemnation or other taking terminates prior to the expiration of the Term, Tenant shall restore the Premises as nearly as possible to the condition prior to the condemnation or other taking, at Tenant's sole cost and expense; provided
that, Tenant shall receive the portion of the award attributable to such restoration.
12. Assignment and Subletting.
12.1 General Prohibition. Tenant acknowledges that the economic concessions and rental rates set forth in this Lease were negotiated by Landlord and Tenant in consideration of, and would not have been granted by Landlord but for, the specific nature of the leasehold interest granted to Tenant hereunder, as such interest is limited and defined by various provisions throughout this Lease, including, but not limited to, the provisions of this Article 12 which define and limit the transferability of such leasehold interest. Tenant further acknowledges and agrees that the leasehold estate granted to Tenant hereunder is not a transferable interest in property, and Landlord hereby reserves the right to receive any increased rental value of the Premises during the Term as the same may be realized by any transfer of said estate, except to the extent Tenant is specifically granted the right to transfer all or part of its leasehold and to retain all or part of the increased rental value thereof pursuant to the provisions of this Article 12. Tenant shall not directly or indirectly, voluntarily or involuntarily assign, mortgage or otherwise encumber all or any portion of its interest in this Lease or in the Premises (collectively, "Assignment") or permit the Premises to be occupied by anyone other than Tenant or Tenant's employees or sublet the Premises (collectively. "Sublease") or any portion thereof without obtaining the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld subject to the provisions of Section 12.2 hereunder and any such attempted assignment, subletting, mortgage or other encumbrance without such consent shall be null and void and of no effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant is or has been at any time in default under any of the terms of this Lease, Tenant may not assign, transfer or sublet the Premises in whole or in part.
12.2 Notice of Intent to Assign or Sublet. If Tenant desires at any time to enter into an Assignment or to Sublease the Premises or any portion thereof, it shall first notify Landlord of its desire to do so and shall submit in writing to Landlord; (i) the name of the proposed assignee, subtenant transferee or occupant; (ii) the nature of the proposed Transferee's business to be carried on in the Premises; (iii) the terms and provisions of the proposed Sublease or Assignment; and (iv) such financial information as Landlord may reasonably request concerning the proposed Transferee. In the event the assignee or sub-lessee is not engaged in the same use or does not have equal or greater financial net worth and Tenant, Landlord shall have the right to reject the Sublease or Assignment which rejection shall be deemed reasonable.
12.3 No Release of Tenant's Obligations. No Assignment or Sublease shall relieve Tenant of its obligation to pay the rent and to perform all of the other obligations to be performed by Tenant hereunder. The acceptance of rent by Landlord from any other person shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of any provision of this Lease or to be consent to any Assignment or Sublease. Consent to one Sublease or Assignment shall not be deemed to constitute consent to any subsequent Sublease or Assignment.
12.4 Transfer is Assignment. If Tenant is a corporation or is a limited liability company or partnership, the issuance of any additional stock and/or the sale, transfer, assignment or hypothecation of any stock or interest in such corporation, LLC or partnership in the aggregate in excess of twenty-five percent (25%) shall be deemed an Assignment hereunder. Tenant agrees to promptly pay as Additional Rent Landlord's reasonable costs and attorneys' fees, not to
exceed Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) per occurrence, incurred in connection with the processing and documentation of any requested Assignment or Sublease.
12.5 Assumption of Obligations. Each Transferee, other than Landlord, shall assume, as provided in this Section 12.5, all obligations of Tenant under this Lease and shall be and remain liable jointly and severally with Tenant for the payment of the rent, and for the performance of all of the terms, covenants, conditions and agreements herein contained on Tenant's part to be performed for the term of this Lease; provided, however, that the Transferee shall be liable to Landlord for rent only in the amount set forth in the Assignment or Sublease. No Assignment shall be binding on Landlord unless the Transferee or Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a counterpart of the Assignment and an instrument in recordable form which contains a covenant of assumption by the Transferee satisfactory in substance and form to Landlord consistent with the requirements of this Section 12.5, but the failure or refusal of the Transferee to execute such instrument of assumption shall not release or discharge the Transferee from its liability as set forth above.
13. Landlord's Reserved Rights.
13.1 Right of Entry. Landlord and its agents and representatives shall have the right, at all reasonable times, upon twenty-four (24) hours written notice, except in the case of an emergency, in which event notice shall be waived, to enter the Premises for purposes of inspection, to post notices of non-responsibility, to protect the interest of Landlord in the Premises and any other services to be provided by Landlord hereunder, to perform all required or permitted work therein, including the erection of scaffolding, props and other mechanical devices for the purpose of making alterations, repairs or additions to the Premises or the Building which are provided for in this Lease or required by law.

Tenant, however, shall execute promptly any certificate or document that Landlord may request to effectuate, evidence or confirm such subordination and failure to do so shall be a material breach of this Lease.

Tenant shall, at least six (6) months before the expiration of the Term, give written notice to Landlord of Tenant's intention to surrender the Premises upon the expiration of the Term or exercise its 'option to extend'. Nothing contained herein, however, shall be construed as an extension of the Term or as consent of Landlord to any holding over by Tenant in the event said notice is not given in a timely fashion.
19. Holding Over.
19.1 In the event Tenant holds over after the expiration of the Term, with or without the express or implied consent of Landlord, such tenancy shall be from month-to-month only, and not a renewal hereof or an extension for any further term, and such month-to-month tenancy shall be subject to each and every term, covenant and agreement contained herein; provided, however, that Tenant shall pay as Basic Rent during any holding over period, an amount equal to the greater of one-hundred fifty percent (150%) of the fair market value rental rate of the Premises or two times the Basic Rent payable immediately preceding the expiration of the Term. Nothing in this Article 19 shall be construed as a consent by Landlord to any holding over by Tenant and Landlord expressly reserves the right to require Tenant to surrender possession of the Premises upon the-expiration of the Term or upon the earlier termination hereof and to assert any remedy in law or equity to evict Tenant and/or collect damages in connection with such holding over.
20. Defaults and Remedies.
20.1 Defaults by Tenant. The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute a material default and breach of this Lease by Tenant. The failure by Tenant to pay the rent or make any other payment required to be made by Tenant hereunder as and when due where such failure continues for five (5) business days after notice thereof by Landlord to Tenant, provided however, that such notice shall be in lieu of and not in addition to any notice required under Nevada law.
a. The abandonment or vacation of the Premises by Tenant.
b. The failure by Tenant to observe or perform the provisions of Articles 2 and 6 where such failure continues and is not remedied within forty-eight (48) hours after notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant.
c. The failure by Tenant to provide estoppel certificates as herein provided.
d. The failure by Tenant to observe or perform any other provision of this Lease, including Rules and Regulations which may be adopted by Landlord where such failure continues for twenty (20) days after notice thereof by Landlord to Tenant; provided, however, that if the nature of such default is such that the same cannot reasonably be cured within such twenty (20) day period, Tenant shall not be deemed to be in default if Tenant shall within such period commence such cure and thereafter diligently prosecute the same to completion.
e. Any action taken by or against Tenant pursuant to any statute pertaining to bankruptcy or insolvency or the reorganization of Tenant (unless, in the case of a petition filed against Tenant, the same is dismissed within thirty (30) days); the making by Tenant of any general assignment for the benefit of creditors; the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of all or any portion of Tenant's assets located at the Premises or of Tenant's interest in this Lease, where possession is not restored to Tenant within thirty (30) days; or the attachment, execution, or other
judicial seizure of all or any portion of Tenant's assets located at the Premises or of Tenant's interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within thirty (30) days.
f. Tenant shall fail to occupy the Premises within sixty (60) days after the Commencement Date.
g. In addition to the events constituting a default and breach of the Lease by Tenant as set forth herein, if within any twelve (12) month period during the term of the Lease Tenant shall have failed to perform any obligation required of Tenant hereunder, or has been in breach for any reason under the Lease more than two (2) times, and Landlord, because of any such failure and/or breach, shall have served upon Tenant within said twelve (12) month period two (2) or more notices of any such failure or breach, then any subsequent failure or breach shall be deemed a non-curable default, without requirement of notice or opportunity to cure, and Landlord shall be immediately entitled to exercise any and all rights, remedies and/or elections specified below otherwise available at law or in equity.
h. Tenant's failure to vacate and surrender the Premises as required by this Lease upon the expiration of the Term or termination of this Lease.
20.2 Landlord's Remedies. In the event of any such default by Tenant, then, in addition to any other remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity, Tenant shall repay to Landlord all free Base Rent (if any) and Landlord shall have the immediate option to terminate this Lease and all rights of Tenant hereunder by giving Tenant five (5) days' written notice of such election to terminate. In the event Landlord shall elect to so terminate this Lease, Landlord may recover from Tenant:
(i) the worth at the time of award of any unpaid rent which has been earned at the time of such termination; plus
(ii) the worth at the time of award of any amount by which the unpaid rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; plus
(iii) the worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of the award exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided; plus
(iv) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the detriment proximately caused by Tenant' s failure to perform its obligations under this Lease or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to result therefrom; and
(v) at Landlord's election, such other amounts in addition to or in lieu of the foregoing as may be permitted from time to time by applicable law.
a. All "rent" (as defined in Section 4) shall be computed on the basis on the monthly amount thereof payable on the date of Tenant's default, as the same are to be adjusted thereafter as contemplated by this Lease. As used in paragraphs (i) and (ii) above, the "worth at the time of award" is computed by allowing interest in the per annum amount equal to the prime rate of interest or other equivalent reference rate from time to time announced by the Bank of America National Trust and Savings Association (the "Reference Rate") plus two percent (2%), but in no event in excess of the maximum interest rate permitted by law. As used in paragraph (iii) above, the "worth at the time of award" is computed by discounting such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award plus one percent (1%).
b. In the event of any such default by Tenant, Landlord shall also have the right, with or without terminating this Lease, to re-enter the Premises and remove all persons and property therefrom by summary proceedings or otherwise; such property may be removed and stored in a
public warehouse or elsewhere at the cost of and for the account of Tenant.
c. In the event of the vacation or abandonment of the Premises by Tenant, or in the event that Landlord elects to re-enter as provided in Paragraph (c) above or takes possession of the Premises pursuant to legal proceeding or pursuant to any notice provided by law, and if Landlord does not elect to terminate this Lease, then Landlord may from time to time, without terminating this Lease, either recover all rent as it becomes due or re-let the Premises or any part thereof for such term or terms and at such rent and upon such other terms and conditions as Landlord, in its sole discretion may deem advisable, with the right to make alterations and repairs to the Premises. If Landlord does not terminate this Lease and if Tenant requests Landlord's consent to an Assignment of this Lease or a Sublease of the Premises at such time as Tenant is in default, Landlord may not unreasonably withhold its consent to such Assignment or Sublease.
d. In the event that Landlord shall elect to so re-let as provided in Paragraph (d) above, then rentals received by Landlord from such re-letting shall be applied: First, to the payment of any indebtedness other than rent due hereunder from Tenant to Landlord; second, to the payment of any cost of such reletting; third, to the payment of the cost of any alterations and repairs to the Premises; fourth, to the payment of rent due and unpaid hereunder; and the remainder, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future rent as the same may become due and payable hereunder. Should that portion of such rentals received from such reletting during any month, which is applied to the payment of rent hereunder, be less than the rent payable during that month by Tenant hereunder, then Tenant shall pay such deficiency to Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly. Tenant shall also pay to Landlord, as soon as ascertained, any and all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in such reletting or in making such alterations and repairs not covered by the rentals received from such reletting.
20.3 Se-Entry Not Termination. No re-entry or taking possession of the Premises by Landlord pursuant to this Article 20 shall be construed as an election to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention is given to Tenant or unless the termination thereof shall be decreed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any reletting without termination by Landlord because of any default of Tenant, Landlord may at any time after such reletting elect to terminate this Lease for any such default.
20.4 Definition of Tenant. As used in this Article 20 and in Article 21, the term "Tenant" shall be deemed to include all persons or entities named as Tenant under this Lease, or each and every one of them. If any of the obligations of Tenant hereunder is guaranteed by another person or entity, the term "Tenant" shall be deemed to include all of such guarantors and any one or more of such guarantors. If this Lease has been assigned, the term "Tenant, " as used in this Article 20 and in Article 21 shall be deemed to include both the assignee and the assignor.
21.1 If, at any time prior to the Commencement Date, any action is taken by or against Tenant in any court pursuant to any statute pertaining to bankruptcy or insolvency or the reorganization of Tenant, Tenant makes any general assignment for the benefit of creditors, a trustee or receiver is appointed to take possession of substantially all of Tenant's assets or of Tenant' s interest in this Lease, or there is an attachment, execution or other judicial seizure of substantially all of Tenant's assets or of Tenant's interest in this Lease, then this Lease shall ipso facto be canceled and terminated and no further force or effect. In such event, neither Tenant nor any person
claiming through or under Tenant or by virtue of any statute or of any order of any court shall be entitled to possession of the Premises or any interest in this Lease and Landlord shall, in addition to any other rights and remedies under this Lease, be entitled to retain any rent, security deposit or other monies received by Landlord from Tenant as liquidated damages.
22. Interest on Tenant's Obligations: Late Charges.
22.1 Interest. Any amount due from Tenant to Landlord which is not paid when due shall bear interest at the lesser of two percent (2%) or the maximum rate per annum which Landlord is permitted by law to charge, from the date such payment is due until paid, but the payment of such interest shall not excuse or cure any default by Tenant under this Lease.
22.2 Late Charge. In the event Tenant is more than five (5) days late in paying any installment of rent due under this Lease, Tenant shall pay Landlord a late charge equal to five percent (5%) of the delinquent installment of rent plus a fee of Ten Dollars ($10.00) per day until such installment of rent is paid. The parties agree that the amount of such late charge represents a reasonable estimate of the cost and expense that would be incurred by Landlord in processing each delinquent payment of rent by Tenant and that such late charge shall be paid to Landlord as liquidated damages for each delinquent payment, but the payment of such late charge shall not excuse or cure any default by Tenant under this Lease. The parties further agree that the payment of late charges and the payment of interest provided for in Section 22.1 above are distinct and separate from one another in that the payment of interest is to compensate Landlord for the use of Landlord's money by Tenant, while the payment of a late charge is to compensate Landlord for the additional administrative expense incurred by Landlord in handling and processing delinquent payments.
23. Quiet Enjoyment. Tenant, upon the paying of all rent hereunder and performing each of the covenants, agreements and conditions of this Lease required to be performed by Tenant, shall lawfully and quietly hold, occupy and enjoy the Premises during the Term without hindrance or molestation of anyone lawfully claiming by, through or under Landlord, subject, however, to the provisions set forth in this Lease.
24. Examination of Lease. The submission of this instrument for examination or signature by Tenant, Tenant's agents or attorneys, does not constitute a reservation of, or an option-to-lease, and this instrument shall not be effective or binding as a lease or otherwise until its execution and delivery by both Landlord and Tenant.
25. Brokers. Tenant warrants that it has not had any contact or dealings with any person or real estate broker which would give rise to the payment of any fee or brokerage commission, in connection with this Lease, and Tenant shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend Landlord from and against any liability with respect to any fee or brokerage commission arising out of any act or omission of Tenant
26. Rules and Regulations. The Rules and Regulations attached hereto as Exhibit "A" are hereby incorporated herein and made a part of this Lease. Tenant agrees to abide by and comply with each and every one of said Rules and Regulations and any amendments, modifications and/or additions thereto as may hereafter be adopted by Landlord for the safety, care, security,
good order and cleanliness of the Premises, the Building or any other portion of the Project. Landlord shall have the right to amend, modify or add to the Rules and Regulations in its sole discretion. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for any violation of any of the Rules and Regulations by any other tenant or for the failure of Landlord to enforce any of the Rules and Regulations.
27. Signage. Tenant shall have the right to place a sign identifying Tenant on the exterior of each entry door for the Premises. Tenant shall not have the right to any other signage which is visible from outside the Premises without the prior written consent of Landlord. Any signage identifying Tenant on the facade of the Building or on any Project monument shall be installed at Landlord' s reasonable discretion and at Tenant's sole cost and expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Landlord erects a monument sign, Tenant shall have the right, if there is space on the monument sign to place its name on such monument sign, at Tenant's sole cost and expense.
28. General Provisions.
28.1 No Waiver. The waiver by Landlord of any breach of any term, provision, covenant or condition contained in this Lease, or the failure of Landlord to insist on the strict performance by Tenant, shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such term, provision, covenant or condition as to any subsequent breach thereof or of any other term, covenant or condition contained in this Lease. The acceptance of rents hereunder by Landlord shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any breach or default by Tenant of any term, provision, covenant or condition herein, regardless of Landlord's knowledge of such breach or default at the time of acceptance of rent.
28.2 Landlord's Right to Perform. All covenants and agreements to be performed by Tenant under any of the terms of this Lease shall be performed by Tenant at Tenant's sole expense and without abatement of rent. If Tenant shall fail to observe and perform any covenant, condition, provision or agreement contained in this Lease or shall fail to perform any other act required to be performed by Tenant, Landlord may, upon notice to Tenant, without obligation, and without waiving or releasing Tenant from any default or obligations of Tenant, make any such payment or perform any such obligation on Tenant's part to be performed. All sums so paid by Landlord and all costs incurred by Landlord, including attorneys' fees, together with interest thereon in a per annum amount equal to two percent (2%), but not in excess of the maximum rate permitted by law, shall be payable to Landlord on demand and Tenant covenants to pay any such sums, and Landlord shall have (in addition to any other right or remedy hereunder) the same rights and remedies in the event of the non-payment thereof by Tenant as in the case of default by Tenant in the payment of rent.
28.3 Terms: Headings. The words "Landlord" and "Tenant" as used herein shall include the plural, as well as the singular. The words used in neuter gender include the masculine and feminine and words in the masculine or feminine gender include the neuter.

The headings or titles of this Lease shall have no effect upon the construction or interpretation of any part hereof.
28.4 Entire Agreement. This instrument along with any exhibits and attachments or other documents affixed hereto, or referred to herein, constitutes the entire and exclusive agreement
between Landlord and Tenant with respect to the Premises and the estate and interest leased to Tenant hereunder.

Landlord and Tenant hereby agree that all prior or contemporaneous oral understandings, agreements or negotiations relative to the leasing of the Premises are merged into and revoked by this instrument.

28.6 Notices.

If the term "Tenant" in this Lease refers to more than one person or entity, Landlord shall be required to make service or delivery, as aforesaid, to any one of said persons or entities only. Notices shall be deemed sufficiently served or given at the time of personal delivery or three (3) days after the date of mailing thereof; provided, however, that any notice of default to Tenant under Article 20 shall be hand-delivered to the Premises. Any notice, request, communication or demand by Tenant to Landlord shall be addressed to the Landlord at: 1800 Industrial Rd, Suite 108G, Las Vegas. Nevada 89102.

Landlord shall not be liable for any failure to comply or delay in complying with its obligations hereunder if such failure or delay is due to acts of God, inability to obtain labor, strikes, lockouts, lack of materials, governmental restrictions, enemy actions, civil commotion, fire, unavoidable casualty or other similar causes beyond Landlord' s reasonable control (all of which events are herein referred to as force majeure events). It is expressly agreed that Landlord shall not be obliged to settle any strike to avoid a force majeure event from continuing.
