Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Effective August 6, 2018, Prime Meridian Holding Company’s (the “Company”) wholly-owned subsidiary, Prime Meridian Bank (the “Bank”), entered into a Retail Lease (the “Lease”) at its Timberlane location with the new owner of the property, LG Tallahassee Market Square, LLC (the “Landlord”). The Lease allows for the operation of a full-service banking office at 1471 Timberlane Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32312. The term of the Lease is 15 years, with four options to renew for five years each. The Lease requires the Landlord to seek approval from the City of Tallahassee for a lot line adjustment. Once this approval is received, the Landlord has six months from the approval date to deliver notice and proof of a Certificate of Completion (the “Delivery Date”), certifying that the Landlord’s improvement obligations are complete. The new rent obligations will commence 120 days after the Delivery Date (the “Rent Commencement Date”) and are as follows:

Prior to the Rent Commencement Date, the Bank will pay rent in accordance with its prior lease as disclosed in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. The Lease is a fully net lease, with the Bank separately paying real and personal property taxes, all special and third party assessments, common area maintenance charges, maintenance costs, and insurance expenses.

The foregoing summary of the Lease does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Lease, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

DEMISED PREMISES

(a)    Granting Clause. Landlord hereby leases to Tenant, and Tenant hereby leases from Landlord the demised premises (the “Demised Premises”), as described in further detail in Section 1, situated substantially in the location which is shown as outlined or hatched on the site plan designated on Exhibit “A” (the “Site Plan”). The Demised Premises is located on the tract of property described in Exhibit “B”, which is annexed hereto and incorporated by reference herein and made a part hereof for all purposes, in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of this Lease. Tenant desires to lease from Landlord the Demised Premises, in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of this Lease. Landlord reserves the right to place in, under or over the Demised Premises pipes, wires, lines, and facilities but only to the extent required by applicable governmental authorities in connection with Landlord’s redevelopment of the adjacent shopping center known as “Market Square Tallahassee” (the “Shopping Center”). For all purposes hereunder, the Gross Building Area of the Demised Premises is stipulated to be the square footage set forth in Section 1 hereof.

(b)    Delivery Date. The “Delivery Date” as used herein shall be the date that Landlord delivers written notice that Landlord has substantially completed Landlord’s Work (hereinafter defined), as evidenced by a certificate of completion or other similar documentation upon final inspection issued by the proper governmental entity(ies), though Landlord estimates to be on or before six (6) months from the Expansion Date, as defined below, (the “Estimated Delivery Date”), subject to possible extension as set forth in Article 6. In the event the Expansion Date does not occur and Tenant elects 2(d)(iii) then the Estimated Delivery Date shall be six (6) months from the date Tenant notifies Landlord in writing of such election.

 

2


(c)    Existing Lease. Landlord and Tenant are parties (or are parties as successors in-interest to the original landlord and tenant thereunder) to (i) an existing Lease Agreement dated April 19, 2007, (ii) an existing Lease Agreement dated June 23, 2010, and (iii) an existing Lease Agreement dated November 18, 2016 (collectively, the “Existing Leases”) for, respectively, Units 124, 124B, and 126 (the “Current Premises”). The Existing Leases shall remain in full force and effect until the Rent Commencement Date, as defined in Article 4, whereupon the Existing Leases shall automatically terminate and shall be of no further force and effect. From and after the Rent Commencement Date, this Lease shall commence and govern the relationship of Landlord and Tenant with respect to the Premises for all purposes. Tenant shall continue to occupy the Current Premises from the date hereof through the Rent Commencement Date on the same terms and conditions set forth in the Existing Leases, including, but not limited to, the payment of all Minimum Rent and any additional rent as required thereunder. Tenant shall be permitted early access to the portion of the Demised Premises that is not included in the Current Premises pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Lease, including but not limited to, all insurance and indemnification obligations, except that no Minimum Rent or other pass through expenses shall be due hereunder, though Tenant’s early access, if at all exercised, shall not affect the Commencement Date, for rent or other purposes, as defined herein.

(d)    Expansion Parcel. Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to process a lot line adjustment with the City of Tallahassee, Florida (the “City”) to expand the Parcel in the manner and scope shown on the Site Plan of the Expanded Demised Premises attached hereto as Exhibit “A-1” (the “Lot Adjustment”). Landlord shall commence preparation and filing of the Lot Adjustment promptly after the Effective Date and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue the same to completion within one hundred twenty (120) days of commencing the process. In the event the Lot Adjustment is approved by the City, then upon such approval (the “Expansion Date”) the Demised Premises shall be automatically expanded to include the entire parcel depicted in the Lot Adjustment application and Landlord and Tenant shall enter into an amendment to reflect the new legal description of the Demised Premises. Upon the Expansion Date, the Minimum Rent due hereunder shall remain the same as provided above in Section 1. In the event the City rejects or fails to approve the Lot Adjustment one hundred twenty (120) days after Landlord filing the same, then Tenant may in its sole and exclusive discretion (i) terminate this Lease and revert to the terms of the Existing Leases defined in Section 2(c) hereof by giving Landlord written notice of such termination no later than thirty (30) days after the expiration of the aforesaid 120-day period, or (ii) grant additional time for the Lot Adjustment to be approved, which shall be evidenced by an amendment to this Lease signed within said thirty-day period, or (iii) elect for this Lease to remain in full force and effect pursuant to the existing terms hereof except for this Section 2(d) and the reference to the Expansion Parcel in Section 35(e), both of which shall be of no further force and effect. From and after the Expansion Date, Tenant shall alter the Parcel to provide for the relocation and expansion of the bank drive through to the back of the building and associated site modifications including construction of the “New Access Drive” in accordance with Exhibit “A-1”. Landlord shall obtain and provide to Tenant, at Landlord’s expense, a valid Owner’s Affidavit that complies with Chapter 713, Florida Statutes, in a form, a time, and manner sufficient for recording purposes. In connection with the expansion of the Parcel, Tenant shall also perform the following work, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, upon the terms and conditions set forth herein: (i) all modifications necessary as reasonably required by Landlord and all applicable governmental or quasi- governmental authorities to modify any areas of the Shopping Center impacted by such expansion, all as approved by Landlord in Landlord’s reasonable discretion, (ii) and to construct the expansion along the southern boundary of the parcel so that any curbing or demarcation between the parcels is constructed in a first class manner and aesthetically cohesive with the Shopping Center development. All such work by Tenant to expand the Parcel shall be in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations of all applicable governmental authorities.

TERM

(a)    Primary Term. The “Primary Term” (herein so called) of this Lease shall commence on the Delivery Date and shall expire on that date which is fifteen (15) Lease Years (as defined below) following the Rent Commencement Date (hereinafter defined), unless the Rent Commencement Date occurs on a date which is not the first day of the month, in which event the Primary Term shall end fifteen (15) Lease Years from the last day of the month following the Rent Commencement Date, unless earlier terminated or extended as provided herein. This Lease shall be a binding contractual agreement effective upon the date of execution hereof by both Landlord and Tenant, notwithstanding the later commencement of the Primary Term of this Lease. Within thirty (30) business days after the Rent Commencement Date (hereinafter defined), Tenant shall deliver to Landlord the Rent Commencement Date Agreement in accordance with the form attached hereto as Exhibit “C”. The Primary Term along with any Renewal Term (as defined below) shall hereinafter collectively be referred to as the “Lease Term”.

(b)    Lease Year. For purposes of this Lease, the “first Lease Year” shall be defined as that period of time from the Rent Commencement Date through that date which is one (1) year from the Rent Commencement Date; however, if the Rent Commencement Date is a day other than the first day of a calendar month, then the first Lease Year shall expire on the last day of the month following that date which is one (1) year from the Rent Commencement Date. Each subsequent “Lease Year” shall be successive twelve-month periods beginning on the first day following the expiration of the first Lease Year. The term “Initial Year” means the calendar year in which the Rent Commencement Date occurs. The term “Subsequent Year” means any calendar year during the Term hereof after the Initial Year.

(c)    Renewal Options. Tenant shall have the option, subject to the requirements set forth in this Section 3(c), to renew the Term of the Lease for four (4) consecutive Five (5) year renewal terms (each a “Renewal Term”). Each Renewal Term shall be upon the same terms and conditions as contained in this Lease, except that (i) any rent free periods, rental concessions, inducements, allowances and other similar items applicable during any Term will not apply during any Renewal Term, (ii) Tenant will accept the Demised Premises on an “as is” basis at the commencement of the Renewal Term, (iii) there shall be no further right of renewal except as stated above, and (iv) the Minimum Annual Rent for each respective Renewal Term shall be equal to one hundred ten percent (110%) of the Minimum Annual Rent of the last Lease Year or Renewal Term. The renewal option set forth in this Section 3(c) will only be valid if (a) the Tenant that signed this Lease, or its successor by merger or acquisition of substantially all of the assets of the branch bank of the Tenant operated at the Premises, is the occupant of the Demised Premises; (b) Landlord has received written notice of Tenant’s election to renew at least one hundred eighty (180) days prior to the expiration of the initial Term or the then existing Renewal Term, as applicable; (c) Tenant is not in default beyond any applicable notice and cure period; and (d) Tenant has duly and regularly performed its obligations under this Lease (Landlord reserving, in its sole discretion, the right to waive compliance with any or all of the foregoing pre-conditions to Tenant’s exercise of any option to renew, such waiver to be evidenced by Landlord’s written acceptance of the Tenant’s exercise of the renewal option).

 

4.

RENT AND OTHER EXPENSE PAYMENTS

(a)    General. The “Rent” (or sometimes simply “rent”) hereunder is composed of “Minimum Annual Rent” (as set forth in Section 1 hereof and adjustments thereto as hereinafter provided), any and all amounts due from Tenant to Landlord hereunder, including, but not limited to, “Default Expenses” (as defined herein), if any. Beginning on the date that is one hundred twenty (120) days after the Delivery Date (the “Rent Commencement Date”), Tenant shall pay to Landlord all Rent required under this Lease, which shall be payable on a monthly basis to Landlord (unless expressly provided otherwise), without deduction or offset, unless expressly stated herein, including but not limited to the terms of Section 6, in lawful money of the United States of America at the address for payment of Rent set forth in Section 1 above, or at such other place as Landlord may from time to time designate in writing. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Lease, all Minimum Annual Rent, Default Expenses and all other sums of money or

 

4


charges required to be paid pursuant to this Lease shall be deemed rental for the Demised Premises and in any statutory notice to pay rent or quit the Demised Premises, Landlord may include and designate same as rent then past due and owing, if such be the case. No acceptance by Landlord of partial payment of any Rent or other sum due from Tenant shall be deemed a waiver by Landlord of any of its rights to the full amount due, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or accompanying letter from Tenant be deemed an accord and satisfaction. Any Rent payment(s) or other sums received from Tenant or any other person shall be conclusively presumed to have been paid on Tenant’s behalf, unless Landlord has been given prior written notice to the contrary by Tenant. Tenant agrees that the acceptance by Landlord of any such payment shall not constitute a consent by Landlord or a waiver of any of its rights under this Lease. In no event shall the foregoing be construed as requiring Landlord to accept any Rent or other sums from any person other than Tenant. If the Term hereof ends on a day other than the last day of a month, then the Rent for the month during which the Term ends shall be prorated based on a thirty (30) day month. All prorations of Rent or Expenses under this Lease for fractional periods shall be based on a thirty (30) day month and a three hundred sixty-five (365) day year.

(b)    Minimum Annual Rent. Prior to the Rent Commencement Date, Tenant shall continue to pay rent in accordance with the Existing Lease, as defined in Section 2(c). Tenant shall thereafter pay an amount equal to One-Twelfth (1/12) of the Minimum Annual Rent set forth in Section 1 hereof (the “Monthly Rent”) on the first day of each month in advance, beginning on the Rent Commencement Date. If the Rent Commencement Date occurs on a day other than the first day of the month, then the Monthly Rent for the partial month in which the Rent Commencement Date occurs shall be prorated on the basis of a thirty (30) day month and shall be payable with the first full payment of Monthly Rent due hereunder.

(c)    Default Expenses. If Landlord pays any monies or incurs any expense to correct an “Event of Default” (as defined in Section 19) by Tenant, or to do anything in this Lease required to be done by Tenant, or incurs any expense (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs), as a result of Tenant’s failure to perform any of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease after notice pursuant to Section 19 (“Default Expenses”), all reasonable amounts shown to be necessarily paid or incurred shall, on notice to Tenant, be considered additional rent payable by Tenant with the first Monthly Rent installment thereafter becoming due and payable, and may be collected as provided by law in the case of rent.

(d)    Independent Covenant. The obligation of Tenant to pay Rent and the obligations of Tenant to perform other covenants and duties hereunder constitute independent and unconditional obligations of Tenant to be performed at all times as provided hereunder.

(e)    Fully Net Lease. This Lease is intended to be a fully net lease; it being the intention of the parties hereto that Landlord will have and enjoy the Rent without notice or demand. All costs and expenses of every kind and nature arising out of the use and occupancy of the Demised Premises, including, but not limited to, taxes, real and personal, and all special and third party assessments or common area maintenance charges applicable to the Demised Premises, maintenance, and insurance as set forth below, are payable by Tenant. Tenant has the obligation to and shall pay all sales or use taxes (including any taxes assessed on rental income) imposed by any state, county or municipal taxing authority and shall hold Landlord, its members, officers, directors, partners, employees, agents and Landlord’s successors and assigns harmless from any liability therefor. Tenant shall, within thirty (30) days of receipt of Landlord’s written request, provide Landlord with commercially reasonable documentation evidencing all such payments. Further, any tax paid by Landlord in connection with this Lease, except income tax, but including, without limitation, any rental or similar tax imposed on rents, shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon demand.

5.

LATE PAYMENT

In the event that Tenant shall fail to pay to Landlord any rent within ten (10) business days of when due, such rent shall be considered late, and shall bear interest at the Default Rate as herein provided and, in addition:

For the second and every subsequent payment of Rent that is late, as herein defined, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a service charge equal to five percent (5%) of the overdue amount. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that such late payment by Tenant will cause Landlord to incur costs and expenses not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amounts of which will be extremely difficult to ascertain, and that such service charge represents a fair estimate of the costs and expenses which Landlord would incur by reason of Tenant’s late payment. Tenant further agrees that such service charge shall neither constitute a waiver of Tenant’s default with respect to such overdue amount nor prevent Landlord from exercising any other right or remedy available to Landlord.

 

6.

LANDLORD IMPROVEMENTS; “AS-IS, WHERE IS, WITH ALL FAULTS”; TENANT IMPROVEMENTS

(a)    Construction of the Demised Premises. Landlord agrees to perform the work set forth in Article III of Exhibit “E” attached hereto and incorporated herein, at its expense (“Landlord’s Work” ). Landlord shall use reasonable diligence to substantially complete (as defined in Exhibit “E”) such work on or prior to the Estimated Delivery Date; provided, however, in no event shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for damages to Tenant as a result of Landlord’s failure to substantially complete Landlord’s Work on or prior to the Estimated Delivery Date if such delays were caused by unforeseeable acts or circumstances beyond Landlord’s control, which render Landlord’s performance impossible or commercially impracticable. If Landlord has not delivered the Demised Premises to Tenant, with Landlord’s Work substantially complete within sixty (60) days of the Estimated Delivery Date, as possibly extended hereunder, for reasons other than a Permitted Delay or Tenant Delays (each as hereinafter defined), Tenant may terminate this Lease, in which case the Lease shall be null and void and of no further force and effect, or Tenant may elect to undertake to complete Landlord’s Work at it’s own expense upon written notice to Landlord of such election and in such event, Tenant may deduct such reasonable expenses incurred from Rent until all funds expended for this purpose are repaid in full by such offset. In the event Landlord shall be delayed by a Permitted Delay, then such performance by Landlord shall be excused for the period of any such Permitted Delay and the period for the performance and substantial completion of Landlord’s Work shall be extended for a period equivalent to the cumulative period of such Permitted Delay(s). Should Landlord be delayed in substantially completing Landlord’s Work as a result of (i) Tenant’s failure to approve plans, specifications, changes, cost estimates and other items within the time limits specified therefor set forth in Exhibit “E”, or (ii) any change by Tenant in said plans, specifications, or other items after the expiration of such time limits, (iii) any request by Tenant or requirement necessitated by Tenant’s Work, or (iv) any other delay caused by Tenant, its agents, employees or contractors (collectively, “Tenant Delays”), then, in any or all such instances and without limitation as to any other right or remedy available to Landlord, for the purposes of determining the Rent Commencement Date, Landlord may determine in its reasonable discretion that the Delivery Date is the date that Landlord’s Work would have been substantially completed but for such delay. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT MODIFIED BY LANDLORD’S EXPRESS ASSUMPTION OF CONSTRUCTION OBLIGATIONS CONTAINED IN THIS LEASE WITH RESPECT TO THE LANDLORD’S WORK, THE DEMISED PREMISES ARE BEING LEASED “AS IS,” “WHERE IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” UPON TENANT’S INSPECTION AND APPROVAL FOLLOWING LANDLORD’S WORK WHICH SHALL BE DEEMED PROVIDED IF NO WRITTEN OBJECTION IS MADE BY TENANT WITHIN FIFTEEN (15) BUSINESS DAYS FOLLOWING NOTICE THAT LANDLORD’S WORK IS SUBSTANTIALLY COMPLETE; AND LANDLORD MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE DEMISED PREMISES (WITHOUT LIMITATION, LANDLORD MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AS TO THE HABITABILITY OR FITNESS OF THE DEMISED PREMISES).

 

6


(b)    Tenant’s Improvements. Tenant agrees, at Tenant’s expense, to perform the work described in Article IV of Exhibit “E” (hereinafter, “Tenant’s Work”) in accordance with the general specifications set forth in Article II of Exhibit “E”, as well as any other design criteria that Landlord may reasonably set forth in writing. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, Tenant’s failure to perform, or cause to be performed, Tenant’s Work within the time limits referred to in Exhibit “E” and any delays however caused in performing Tenant’s Work, regardless of whether such delays were beyond the control of Tenant, shall not delay the Rent Commencement Date or Tenant’s obligation to pay Rent hereunder, provided that any delays attributable to or caused by Landlord shall delay the Rent Commencement Date in accordance with such attributable delay. Tenant agrees, at Tenant’s expense, to obtain and maintain (or, in accordance with the next sentence, cause to be obtained and maintained) commercial general liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance to adequately protect Landlord as well as Tenant from and against any and all liability for death or injury to person, or damage to property by reason of the construction of Tenant’s Work. In addition, Tenant shall cause contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, service providers, moving companies and others performing work of any type for or on behalf of Tenant in the Demised Premises to comply with the insurance requirements set forth on Exhibit “E-1” attached hereto.

(c)    Tenant Improvement Allowance. Landlord shall contribute towards the cost of Tenant’s improvements to the Demised Premises by paying to Tenant an allowance (the “Tenant Improvement Allowance”) in accordance with Article IV(F) of Exhibit “E”. Landlord’s obligation to pay the Tenant Improvement Allowance to Tenant shall be conditioned on Tenant not being in default under the terms of this Lease beyond any applicable cure period, in addition to Tenant’s compliance with, and Landlord’s approval of, all requirements set forth in Article IV of Exhibit “E”.

 

7.

SIGNS

Tenant shall be responsible to erect (if not previously existing) and maintain any and all façade and monument signage, which shall advertise Tenant’s business and no other. Tenant may elect to utilize the existing signage and, in such event, no signage approval shall be required from Landlord. Each sign or other advertising or display device (collectively, the “Sign”) of Tenant must conform to all applicable governmental laws and regulations and is subject to Landlord’s approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Landlord makes no representation or warranty that any of Tenant’s existing or proposed signage complies with applicable law. Tenant understands that Tenant must obtain all necessary governmental and quasi-governmental approvals with respect to any new or modified signage. At its own expense, Tenant shall maintain and keep its Sign(s) in or about the Demised Premises clean and in good repair and shall pay for all electric current required in connection with any such Sign.

Tenant acknowledges that there is an existing pylon sign on Timberlane Road, as depicted on Exhibit A, that serves the Shopping Center (the “Shopping Center Pylon”). As of the Effective Date, the Shopping Center Pylon is located outside the boundaries of the Demised Premises; however, after the Expansion Date the Shopping Center Pylon will be located inside the boundaries of the Demised Premises. Landlord shall have the right to maintain the Shopping Center Pylon on the Demised Premises and may access the Demised Premises for maintenance and replacement thereof and to modify any tenant signage. Landlord shall not materially increase the size of the Shopping Center Pylon without Tenant’s prior written consent. Tenant shall repair any damage that occurs to the Shopping Center Pylon during Tenant’s construction or otherwise caused by Tenant. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord may elect to memorialize such rights in a signage easement to be recorded in the Public Records of Leon County, a copy of which shall be provided to Tenant upon recording.

after approval pursuant to Section 24 herein. Tenant shall use the Demised Premises for no other purpose without the prior written consent of Landlord. Notwithstanding the foregoing, or anything herein to the contrary, Tenant shall not use the Demised Premises for any use which would be in violation of any exclusive use and/or other restrictions set forth in the “Property Restrictions” (herein so called) set forth on Exhibit “G” attached hereto. Landlord agrees that, for so long as this Lease remains in full force and effect, Tenant is not in default under this Lease, beyond the expiration of any applicable notice and cure period, and Tenant is open and operating for the Permitted Use in the Demised Premises, Landlord will not enter into a new lease in any adjacent property controlled by Landlord or an affiliate of Landlord at such time to any person or entity which is a banking institution that includes a branch (“Tenant’s Exclusive Use”). The foregoing shall not apply to drugstores, convenience stores, department or grocery stores who provide ancillary services such as, but not limited to, check cashing, money orders, and money transfers, nor other non-banking businesses which have an ATM within the interior of their leased premises. Nor shall the foregoing apply to any tenants under written lease agreements with Landlord that were fully executed prior to the execution of this Lease, or their permitted assigns, which have the legal right to use their premises for such exclusive use right pursuant to their lease (“Existing Tenants”).

(b)    Objectionable Use. Tenant shall not do or permit anything to be done in or about the Demised Premises nor bring or keep anything therein which will in any way increase the existing rate of or affect or cause a cancellation of any fire or other insurance covering the Demised Premises or any of its contents, nor shall Tenant sell or permit to be kept, used or sold in or about the Demised Premises any article which may be prohibited by a standard form policy of insurance. Tenant shall promptly, upon demand, reimburse Landlord for any additional premium charged for any such insurance by reason of Tenant’s failure to comply with the provisions of this Section. Tenant shall neither use the Demised Premises, nor allow the Demised Premises to be used, for any unlawful purpose, nor cause, maintain or permit any nuisance or waste in, on or about the Demised Premises. Tenant will not place a load upon any floor exceeding the floor load which such floor was designed to carry, though by nature of Tenant’s business, it is understood and accepted that Tenant will use vaults and Landlord agrees to cooperate with any plans, specifications or build-out that is required to support the weight of such vault(s). Tenant shall not use or allow anything to be done in or about the Demised Premises which will in any way conflict with any law, ordinance or governmental regulation or requirement of any board of fire underwriters or any duly constituted public or quasi-public authority now in force or hereafter enacted or promulgated affecting the use or occupancy of the Demised Premises, and shall promptly comply with all such laws or requirements at its sole cost and expense. The judgment of any court of competent jurisdiction or any admission by Tenant that Tenant has violated any such law, statute, ordinance, rule, regulation or requirement shall be conclusive of such fact as between Landlord and Tenant. Tenant shall not use any portion of the Demised Premises as living quarters, sleeping quarters or for lodging purposes, nor shall Tenant use the Demised Premises for any improper, unethical, immoral, unlawful, pornographic or other similarly objectionable or offensive purpose. Tenant shall not conduct or permit in the Demised Premises any fire, bankruptcy, auction, “closeout”, “going out of business” or similar sale. Tenant shall not install or use upon the Demised Premises any coin- or token-operated vending machine or other coin- or token-operated device for the sale of any goods, wares, merchandise, pay-lockers, pay-toilets, scales, amusement devices, slot machines and other gambling devices and machines for the sale of cigarettes or other commodities). Tenant may not sell merchandise or allow objects to be stored, or to remain, outside the exterior walls and permanent doorways of the Demised Premises, excepting promotional signs and objects for the Tenant’s business or charitable purpose(s). Tenant shall not place or authorize to have placed or affixed handbills or other advertising material on the Demised Premises. No advertising or entertainment medium shall be utilized by Tenant which can be heard or experienced outside the Demised Premises, including without limitation, flashing lights, searchlights, loudspeakers, phonographs, radios or televisions; provided, however, Tenant shall be permitted to play recorded music or radio within the Demised Premises so long as Tenant complies with applicable law and code. In addition to the foregoing, Tenant shall, at its expense, properly ventilate the Demised Premises as shall be reasonably necessary for its Permitted Use.

(c)    Continuous Operations. It is understood that Tenant is currently open for business in a portion of the Demised Premises. Tenant may temporarily close its business if necessary to complete the Tenant’s Work and shall reopen for business no later than six (6) months after any closure (the “Outside Opening Date”). Tenant shall thereafter continuously operate its business for the Permitted Use as specified in Section 1 above throughout the Lease Term, and keep exterior signs adequately illuminated and in first-class condition. Tenant acknowledges that its failure to comply with this Section 8(c) will cause Landlord to suffer damages which will be difficult to ascertain; therefore, if Tenant fails to comply with the provisions of this Section 8(c), then, notwithstanding any provision contained herein to the contrary, in addition to any other remedies Landlord may have, Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease on thirty (30) business days advance notice (“Landlord’s Notice ”), and in the event of such a termination, Tenant shall pay all Rent through the date set forth in Landlord’s Notice, as well as a termination fee equal to six (6) months of Minimum Annual Rent (the “Termination Fee”), and after vacating the Demised Premises and receipt of the Termination Fee, Tenant shall be released of all future obligations from and after such termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Tenant reopens for business during the thirty (30) day period following Landlord’s Notice, the Lease shall be reinstated in full force and effect and the termination shall be null and void.

(d)    Use of the Roof. Since Tenant is responsible for the ongoing maintenance and repair of the roof after Landlord’s Work is completed, Landlord agrees to assign any and all roof warranties that Landlord receives in connection with Landlord’s Work. Tenant shall have the right to use the roof provided that in all instances any work performed on the roof, or equipment installed on the roof is done in such a manner so that it does not void any roof warranties. All repairs to the roof shall be made with materials of equal or better quality as the quality of the materials in existence as of the date any damage was caused or act or event otherwise happened that necessitated such repair. Landlord shall not have any responsibility to repair the roof of the Demised Premises. Tenant shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from and against any liability caused as a result of Tenant entering on the roof, including the voiding of any roof warranties. Any equipment or satellite dishes installed on the roof shall be screened from view at street-level and shall be in accordance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

(e)    WAIVER AND ASSIGNMENT OF WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE TERMS OF SECTION 6(A), TENANT AGREES THAT NEITHER LANDLORD NOR ANY AGENT OF LANDLORD HAS MADE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AS TO THE SUITABILITY OF THE DEMISED PREMISES FOR THE CONDUCT OF TENANT’S BUSINESS. TENANT AGREES THAT EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS LEASE, NEITHER LANDLORD NOR LANDLORD’S AGENTS HAVE MADE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR PROMISES WITH RESPECT TO THE PHYSICAL CONDITION OF THE LAND UPON WHICH THE DEMISED PREMISES IS LOCATED, EXPENSES OF OPERATION OR ANY OTHER MATTER OR THING AFFECTING OR RELATED TO THE DEMISED PREMISES, AND NO RIGHTS, EASEMENTS OR LICENSES ARE ACQUIRED BY TENANT BY IMPLICATION OR OTHERWISE.

Tenant shall, within thirty (30) business days after the Delivery Date, furnish Landlord with a written statement that Tenant has accepted the Demised Premises and that Landlord has fully complied with Landlord’s covenants and obligations hereunder (or Tenant shall specifically describe in such statement Landlord’s outstanding obligations, if any). If Tenant shall fail to deliver such statement prior to the expiration of such 30-day period, Landlord shall be deemed to have (i) delivered the Demised Premises to Tenant and (ii) complied with Landlord’s covenants and obligations hereunder. Landlord shall assign any and all construction-related warranties arising or existing by virtue of Landlord’s Work to the use and benefit of Tenant.

(f)    Rules and Regulations.

Tenant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Landlord and its officers, partners, directors, shareholders, employees and agents harmless from any claims, judgments, damages, fines, penalties, reasonable costs, liabilities (including sums paid in settlement of claims) or loss including reasonable attorneys’ fees, consultants’ fees, and expert fees which arise during or after the Term of this Lease in connection with the presence of Hazardous Substances in the soil, groundwater, or soil vapor on or under the Demised Premises caused by the acts or omissions of Tenant, its officers, employees or agents.

Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall maintain, replace, and repair (including replacements if necessary) and keep in neat, clean and orderly condition the Demised Premises and every part thereof (regardless of whether the need for such repairs occurs as a result of Tenant use, any prior use, the elements, or the age of such portion of the Demised Premises, or otherwise) including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing: all plumbing, electrical and lighting facilities and equipment on the Demised Premises (including any heating, ventilation and air conditioning system exclusively serving the Demised Premises); fire sprinkler systems (if any); fixtures; interior walls; exterior walls; roof; foundation; floors; ceilings; windows; doors; plate glass; skylights; entrances and vestibules; storefront; and all signage located on the Demised Premises.

In connection with Tenant surrendering possession of the Demised Premises at the end of the Lease Term, Tenant agrees to repair any damage to the Demised Premises caused by or in connection with the removal of any article of personal property, business or trade fixtures, machinery, equipment, cabinetwork, furniture, movable partitions or permanent improvements or additions, including without limitation thereto, repairing the floor and patching and painting the walls where required to return the Demised Premises to the condition existing at the Rent Commencement Date, reasonable wear and tear excepted. Tenant shall indemnify Landlord against any loss or liability resulting from delay by Tenant in so surrendering the Demised Premises, including without limitation any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded on such delay. The obligations of Tenant set forth in this subsection shall survive expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

If Tenant fails to maintain the Demised Premises in good order, condition and repair, Landlord shall give Tenant notice to do such acts which are Tenant’s obligation hereunder. If Tenant thereafter fails to promptly complete such obligations within thirty (30) days, or if such obligations cannot be completed within 30 days, to commence such work within ten (10) business days and diligently prosecute it to completion, then Landlord shall have the right (but not the obligation) to do such acts and expend such funds at the expense of Tenant as are reasonably required to perform such work. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for any damage, inconvenience, or interference with the use of the Demised Premises by Tenant as a result of performing any such work.

ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS

Tenant shall make no alterations, additions or improvements, or utility installations (which for purposes of this Section shall be defined to mean ducting, power panels, lighting fixtures, space heaters, conduits and wiring), to the Demised Premises or any part thereof, without obtaining the prior written consent of Landlord in each instance, except that Landlord consent shall not be required for any alteration or addition that is non-structural in nature and costs less than Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000) in each instance. Such consent may be granted or withheld in Landlord’s reasonable discretion; provided, however, Landlord may base its consent on a number of conditions, which such conditions may include, but shall not be limited to the following: (i) Landlord is furnished with working drawings before work commences; (ii)

 

12


plans and specifications are drawn by a licensed architect (if a building permit is required); (iii) the work is done in a good and workmanlike manner, at times as may be set forth by Landlord; and (iv) Tenant agrees that upon written request of Landlord, Tenant shall remove, at its expense, any and all of its movable partitions, counters, personal property, equipment, fixtures and furniture, alterations, additions or improvements, which shall have theretofore been constructed or installed by Tenant, prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. Any damage done to the Demised Premises in connection with any such removal shall be repaired at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. Unless Landlord requests for such items to be so removed, all such permanent improvements or fixtures additions to the Demised Premises shall, at the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, become the property of Landlord and remain upon the Demised Premises.

If, however, Tenant fails to remove such items from the Demised Premises prior to the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, or if Tenant has not fully performed all of the covenants and agreements to be performed by Tenant under the provisions of this Lease, all such personal property and all business and trade fixtures, machinery and equipment, cabinetwork, counters, furniture and movable partitions shall become the property of Landlord, but only to the extent, if at all, that any such property is included in valid UCC-lien(s) on file with the State of Florida. In such event, Landlord shall have the right to remove same and sell such items to pay for the cost of removal and/or repairs to the Demised Premises. To the extent the revenue received by Landlord’s sale of property is insufficient to recover Landlord’s cost of removing the same and/or repairs to the Demised Premises, then Landlord shall have the right to proceed directly against Tenant to recover any balance.

All such improvements, alterations, additions or utility installations must be done in a good and workmanlike manner and diligently prosecuted to completion so that the Demised Premises shall at all times be a complete unit except during the period of work. Such improvements, alterations, additions or utility installations shall only be constructed by a licensed contractor.

15.

INSURANCE

(a)    General. All insurance required to be carried by Tenant hereunder shall be issued by responsible insurance companies licensed to do business in the State in which the Demised Premises is located. All policies of insurance provided for herein shall be issued by insurance companies with general policyholder’s rating of not less than A-X or better for property and insurance companies as rated in the most current available “Best Insurance Reports,” reasonable in amount and coverage, and customarily carried in retail projects similar in size, function and character to the Demised Premises, though no requirement expressed or implied herein shall require coverage exceeding $5,000,000.00. Each policy shall name Landlord, Landlord’s Mortgagee, and any management company engaged by Landlord to manage the Demised Premises (for purposes of this Section 15, “Landlord Parties”), as additional insureds. Tenant shall deliver certificates of insurance to Landlord, evidencing the existence and amounts of such insurance, at least ten (10) business days prior to Tenant’s occupancy in the Demised Premises. Failure to make such delivery shall constitute an Event of Default by Tenant under this Lease. All policies of insurance delivered to Landlord must contain a provision stating that the company writing said policy will give to Landlord

 

14


thirty (30) business days’ notice in writing in advance of any modification, cancellation or lapse or reduction in the amounts of insurance. All public liability, property damage and other casualty insurance policies shall be written as primary policies, not contributing with, and not in excess of coverage, of policies which Landlord may carry. Landlord shall be notified in writing immediately by Tenant of claims against Tenant that might cause a reduction below seventy-five percent (75%) of any aggregate limit of any policy. Tenant shall furnish Landlord with renewals or “Binders” of any such policy prior to the expiration thereof. Tenant agrees that if Tenant does not procure and maintain any insurance required of its hereunder Landlord may (but shall not be required to), and after no less than thirty (30) business days advance written notice, obtain such insurance on Tenant’s behalf and charge Tenant the premiums as Additional Rent. Tenant may carry such insurance under a blanket policy provided such blanket policy expressly affords the coverage required by this Lease by a Landlord’s protective liability endorsement or otherwise.

At all times during the Term hereof, Tenant shall maintain in effect policies of property insurance covering (i) all improvements in, on, or to the Demised Premises, (ii) trade fixtures, merchandise and other personal property from time to time in, on, or upon the Demised Premises, and (iii) business income and extra expense coverage for no less than six (6) months of income and expenses, which shall provide for the effective waiver of subrogation in favor of Landlord Parties. Such policies shall be in the broadest available “special form” or “all risks” coverage in an amount not less than one hundred percent (100%) of the full replacement cost thereof from time to time during the Term of this Lease. Such policies shall provide protection against any peril included within the classification “Fire and Extended Coverage”, against vandalism and malicious mischief, against theft, against sprinkler leakage, and against flood damage, unless waived in writing by Landlord (and including cost of demolition and debris removal). Replacement cost for purposes hereof shall be determined by an accredited appraiser selected by Landlord or otherwise by mutual agreement. The proceeds of such insurance shall be used for the repair or replacement of the property so insured. Upon termination of this Lease following property damage as set forth herein, the proceeds under (i) above shall be paid to Landlord, and the proceeds under (ii) above shall be paid to Tenant, except that Landlord shall be paid the unamortized balance of Tenant’s Improvement Allowance (computed on a straight-line basis over the Primary Term of this Lease) from such proceeds to the extent Landlord has not then received payment for the then unamortized portion of Tenant’s Improvement Allowance as set forth above.

(c)    Liability Insurance. Tenant shall at all times during the Term hereof, at its own cost and expense, obtain and continue in force commercial general liability insurance (“CGL”) covering bodily injury liability and property damage liability insurance adequate to protect Landlord Parties against liability for injury to or death of any person in connection with the activities of Tenant in, on or about the Demised Premises, or in connection with the use, operation or condition of the Demised Premises. Such insurance shall at all times be in an amount of not less than Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) for injuries to persons or damage to property. The limits of such insurance do not limit the liability of Tenant hereunder. All public liability and property damage policies shall contain a provision that Landlord, although named as an additional insured, shall nevertheless be entitled to recovery under said policies for any loss occasioned to Landlord (or any other Landlord Party) by reason of the negligence of Tenant or any Tenant Party (as defined in Section 14(a) above). Tenant’s CGL Policy shall be written on an occurrence basis under form ISO CG0001 1093 or ISO CG 0001 0695 or a substantially comparable form, which shall include the following coverages/endorsements:

 

  (i)

Demised Premises/Operations;

DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION

(a)    Partial Damage. If the Demised Premises are damaged by any casualty, then Tenant shall restore such damage at Tenant’s sole cost and expense. Tenant shall be entitled to all proceeds of insurance and rights of recovery against insurers on policies covering such damage or destruction, which proceeds shall be used to reconstruct or repair the Demised Premises; provided however, Tenant’s responsibility shall not be limited to the proceeds actually received.

(b)    Total Destruction. If the Demised Premises are totally destroyed, or if in Landlord’s judgment the Demised Premises cannot be restored as required herein under applicable laws and regulations, then, notwithstanding the availability of insurance proceeds, this Lease may be terminated by Landlord or Tenant effective as of the date of the damage, and Landlord shall be entitled to any proceeds of insurance and rights of recovery against insurers on policies covering such damage or destruction, except for any insurance carried by Tenant for purposes other than for damage or destruction of the Demised Premises, including but not limited to coverage for Tenant’s contents in the Demised Premises, and Tenant’s business-interruption coverage(s), all of which shall belong to Tenant.

(c)    Landlord’s Obligations. Landlord shall not be required to carry insurance of any kind on the Demised Premises and shall not be required to repair any injury or damage thereto by fire or other cause, or to make any restoration or replacement of any paneling, decorations, partitions, ceilings, floor covering, office fixtures, utility installations or any other improvements or property installed in the Demised Premises. Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord for any loss suffered by reason of any such damage, destruction, repair or restoration, unless such damage or destruction was solely caused by the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of Landlord.

 

17.

CONDEMNATION

If all or any part of the Demised Premises is taken or appropriated for public or quasi-public use by the right of eminent domain or otherwise by a taking in the nature of inverse condemnation, with or without litigation, or is transferred by agreement in lieu thereof (any of the foregoing being referred to herein as a “taking”), either party hereto may, by written notice given to the other within thirty (30) business days of receipt of notice of taking, elect to terminate this Lease as of the date possession is transferred pursuant to the taking; provided, however, that before either party may terminate this Lease for a taking, such taking shall be of such an extent and nature as to materially and adversely affect Tenant’s business in the Demised Premises, including but not limited to any reduction or change to its parking rights, and/or ingress and egress rights for Tenant and its customers. No award for any partial or entire taking shall be apportioned, and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any and all rights of Tenant now or hereafter arising in or to the same or any part thereof; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be deemed to give Landlord any interest in, or to require Tenant to assign to Landlord, any award made to Tenant for the taking of personal property belonging to Tenant. In the event of a partial taking of the Demised Premises, which does not result in a termination of this Lease, Rent shall be equitably reduced to the extent Tenant’s business in or use of the Demised Premises is materially and adversely affected and impaired as described above. Each party hereto waives the provisions of any applicable law allowing either party to petition the court to terminate this Lease for a partial taking, it being the intent of the parties that this Section shall govern.

 

18.

LIENS

No mechanics’ or other lien under Chapter 713 of the Florida Statutes shall be allowed against the estate of Landlord by reason of any work performed, materials furnished, or obligations incurred by Tenant pursuant to this Lease, whether in the nature of erection, construction, alteration or repair. Tenant shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend Landlord from any liens and encumbrances arising out of any work performed or materials furnished by or at the direction of Tenant. Landlord shall have the right at all times to keep posted on the Demised Premises any notices permitted or required by law, or which Landlord shall deem proper, for the protection of Landlord and the Demised Premises, and any other party having any interest

 

17


therein, from mechanics’ and materialmen’s liens. Tenant shall place such contractual provisions as Landlord may request in all contracts and subcontracts for Tenant’s Work and Tenant’s improvements assuring Landlord that no mechanics’ liens will be asserted against Landlord’s interest in the Demised Premises or the Shopping Center. Prior to the commencement of any work in the Demised Premises, Tenant shall furnish Landlord with a complete list of all contractors in which it is in direct contract with, which will provide services to Tenant for the performance of any such work. Said contracts shall provide, among other things, the following: that notwithstanding anything in said contracts to the contrary, Tenant’s contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and materialmen (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Contractors”) will perform the work and furnish the required materials on the sole credit of Tenant; that no lien for labor or materials will be filed or claimed by the Contractors against the Demised Premises or the Shopping Center; that the Contractors will immediately discharge any such lien filed by any of the Contractors’ suppliers, laborers, materialmen or subcontractors; and that the Contractors will indemnify and save Landlord harmless from any and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, suffered or incurred as a result of any such lien that may be filed or claimed in connection with or arising out of work undertaken by the Contractors; and that the Contractors will specifically waive and disclaim any rights they may have against Landlord’s interest in the Demised Premises under Chapter 713 of the Florida Statutes. Tenant shall pay promptly all persons furnishing labor or materials with respect to any work performed by Tenant or its contractors on or about the Demised Premises, and upon request, shall obtain and deliver to Landlord, releases or waivers of liens from all parties doing work in the Demised Premises and an affidavit from Tenant stating that all bills have been paid with regard to such work and that there are no outstanding obligations owed with respect to any such work done in the Demised Premises. If any mechanics’ or other liens shall at any time be filed against the Demised Premises or the Shopping Center by reason of work, labor, services or materials performed or furnished, or alleged to have been performed or furnished, to Tenant or to anyone holding the Demised Premises through or under Tenant, Tenant shall forthwith cause the same to be discharged of record or bonded to the satisfaction of Landlord. If Tenant fails, within twenty (20) business days following the imposition of any lien, to cause such lien to be released of record by payment or posting of a proper bond, Landlord shall have, in addition to all other remedies provided herein and by law, the right (but not the obligation) to cause the same to be released by such means as it shall deem proper, including payment of the claim giving rise to such lien. All such sums paid by Landlord and all costs and expenses incurred by it in connection therewith (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), plus an Administration Fee, shall be payable to Landlord by Tenant on demand, with interest at the Default Rate from the date of expenditure. Prior to commencing construction of the Demised Premises, Tenant agrees to execute, record and post, all in conformance with the Florida Mechanic’s Lien Law, a Notice of Commencement and Tenant agrees to execute any other notices required by Landlord to advise third parties of the provisions of this Section.

 

19.

DEFAULTS BY TENANT

The occurrence of any one or more of the following events shall constitute a material default and breach of this Lease (“Event of Default”) by Tenant:

(a)    Failure to Open or Operate. The failure of Tenant to comply with Section 8(c) of this Lease.

(b)    Monetary Default. Tenant failing to make any payment of Rent or of any other sum required to be made by Tenant hereunder, as and when due, provided that with respect to the first three (3) of such late payments in any consecutive twelve (12) month period, though to be considered a default hereunder, Landlord must first provide written notice to Tenant regarding such late payment, with Tenant having five (5) business days to cure such non-payment. Landlord shall not be required to give such notice as a condition precedent to finding Tenant in default hereunder more than three (3) times in any consecutive twelve (12) month period.

 

18


(c)    Non-Monetary Default. The failure by Tenant to observe or perform any other covenant, condition or provision of this Lease to be observed or performed by Tenant, if such failure is not cured within fifteen (15) business days after written notice thereof from Landlord to Tenant; provided, however, that if the nature of Tenant’s default is such that it cannot be cured solely by payment of money and more than fifteen (15) business days are reasonably required for its cure, then Tenant shall not be deemed to be in default if Tenant commences such cure within the fifteen (15) day period and thereafter diligently prosecutes such cure to completion; provided, further, that repeated breaches or defaults by Tenant (more than three (3) in any twelve (12) month period), whether or not cured within said fifteen (15) day period, shall entitle Landlord, at its option, to terminate this Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any violations by Tenant of the Rules and Regulations described in Exhibit “H” shall be cured by Tenant within forty- eight (48) hours after written notice thereof from Landlord, failing which Landlord may (but need not) cure same, in which event Tenant shall pay Landlord, within ten (10) business days after written notice thereof by Landlord, the amount expended by Landlord to effect such cure together with an Administration Fee of the amount thereof.

(d)    Bankruptcy or Insolvency. The making by Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease of any general assignment for the benefit of creditors, the filing by or against Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease of a petition to have Tenant or such guarantor adjudged a bankrupt or of a petition for reorganization or arrangement under any law relating to bankruptcy (unless, in the case of a petition filed against Tenant or such guarantor, the same is dismissed within sixty (60) days); the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession of substantially all of Tenant’s or any such guarantor’s assets located at the Demised Premises or of Tenant’s interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within thirty (30) days; or Tenant or any guarantor of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease shall become insolvent, or shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts as they become due, or shall make a transfer in fraud of creditors, or shall make an assignment for the benefit of creditors.

(e)    Abandonment. Tenant shall completely desert or vacate, or shall commence to completely desert or vacate, the Demised Premises, or any substantial portion of the Demised Premises, or at any time prior to the last month of the Term of this Lease shall remove or attempt to remove, without the prior written consent of Landlord, all or a substantial amount of Tenant’s goods, wares, equipment, fixtures, furniture, or other personal property.

(f)    Liens. Tenant permits to be done anything which creates a lien upon the Demised Premises and fails to remove such lien in accordance with Section 18 above.

 

20.

LANDLORD’S REMEDIES

(a)    Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default under this Lease, Landlord’s obligations under this Lease shall be suspended and Landlord shall have the right, at its option, then or at any time thereafter during the continuance of such Event of Default, to pursue any one or more of the following remedies, in addition to all other rights or remedies provided herein or at law or in equity, in accordance with applicable notice and cure requirements as set forth herein:

(i)    Landlord may do or cause to be done whatever Tenant is obligated to do under the terms of this Lease and, if necessary to such end, Landlord may enter upon the Demised Premises, by picking or changing the locks if necessary, without being liable for prosecution or any claim for damages therefor (Tenant hereby waiving any claim by reason of such entry). Such action on the part of Landlord, if taken, shall in no event or circumstance be construed as or deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of the Event of Default on the part of Tenant hereunder. FURTHER, TENANT AGREES THAT LANDLORD SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING TO TENANT FROM LANDLORD’S ACTIONS IN EFFECTING COMPLIANCE WITH TENANT’S OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF LANDLORD, OR OTHERWISE. All reasonable and

 

19


necessary sums expended by Landlord in effecting compliance with Tenant’s obligations under this Lease (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and related legal costs), together with interest thereon at the Default Rate shall be payable to Landlord on demand.

(ii)    Landlord may terminate this Lease, in which event Tenant shall, within ten (10) business days of failing to cure the breach within any applicable notice and cure period, surrender the Demised Premises to Landlord, and if Tenant fails to do so, Landlord may, without prejudice to any other remedy which Landlord may have for possession or arrearages in rent (including any interest and/or service charge which may have accrued thereon), enter upon and take possession of the Demised Premises and property therein, by picking or changing the locks if necessary, and lock out, expel and remove Tenant and/or any other person or party who may be occupying all or any portion of the Demised Premises, without being liable for prosecution or any claim for damages therefor (Tenant hereby waiving any claim by reason of such entry, taking possession or removal or by issuance of any distress warrant or writ of sequestration, or otherwise), and upon any such entry and taking possession by Landlord, Tenant’s right to possession of the Demised Premises and leasehold estate and options hereunder shall immediately cease and terminate. Landlord shall be entitled to recover damages from Tenant by reason of any such termination of this Lease, such damages to include the unpaid rentals and other sums and charges due at the time of termination, plus interest thereon at the Default Rate and all other sums of money or damages to which Landlord is rightfully entitled hereunder and/or otherwise at law or in equity.

(iii)    Landlord may terminate Tenant’s right of possession of the Demised Premises (without terminating this Lease), take possession of the Demised Premises for the account of Tenant, accelerate the Rent and any other charges to be paid by Tenant to the end of the Term, and collect such Rent and other charges (as well as any unpaid Rent that may be due at such time of the Event of Default) by appropriate legal proceedings. In effort to mitigate Landlord’s damages, Landlord shall use good-faith efforts to re-let the Demised Premises, or any portion thereof, for such periods of time, at then-market rental amounts, for such use, and upon such covenants and conditions as determined by Landlord. Upon such re- letting, Landlord shall apply the net rentals received from such re-letting first to the payment of Landlord’s expenses incurred in the dispossession of Tenant, then to the costs or expenses of repairs to the Demised Premises as may be reasonably necessary to enable Landlord to so re-let, then to the payment of brokerage commissions or any other expenses incurred by Landlord that are reasonably necessary for such re-letting. Following the application of the net rentals from re-letting as described in the preceding sentence, the remaining balance, if any, shall be applied by Landlord from time to time on account of the payment due or payable by Tenant; provided, however, that Landlord reserves the right to bring an action to recover any deficits remaining unpaid as Landlord may deem advisable from time to time, without being obliged to wait until the end of the Term for a final determination of Tenant’s account. In no event shall the commencement or maintenance of any one or more actions preclude Landlord from bringing other or subsequent actions for further accruals pursuant to the provisions hereof. Upon the full and final payment and liquidation of Tenant’s account as aforesaid, any balance then remaining shall be paid to Tenant from time to time with Landlord reserving the right to, at any time, give notice in writing to Tenant of Landlord’s election to terminate this Lease. Upon the giving of such termination notice and final payment by Landlord to Tenant of the credit balance in Tenant’s favor, if any, this Lease shall be finally and effectively terminated and neither party shall have any further obligations hereunder except those expressly stated to survive termination.

(iv)    Intentionally Deleted.

(v)    Intentionally Deleted.

(vi)    Intentionally Deleted.

(b)    Intentionally Deleted.

 

20


(c)    It is expressly agreed that in determining the “rentals and other sums and charges due hereunder,” as such phrase is used throughout Sections 20(a)(i)-(iv) above, there shall be added to the Monthly Rent as provided for in this Lease a sum equal to all additional rent owed by Tenant as stated below.

(d)    It is further agreed that, in addition to payments required pursuant to Sections 20(a)(i)-(iv) above, Tenant shall compensate Landlord for all expenses incurred by Landlord in retaking possession of the Demised Premises and/or any of Tenant’s property therein (including, among other expenses, any increase in insurance premiums caused by the vacancy of the Demised Premises), all expenses incurred by Landlord in reletting (including, among other expenses, repairs, remodeling, replacements, advertisements and brokerage fees), and all losses incurred by Landlord as a direct or indirect result of Tenant’s default.

(e)    Notwithstanding any rule or provision of law to the contrary, in the event Landlord shall, for the purpose of reentering or regaining possession of the Demised Premises, or for the purpose of excluding Tenant therefrom, or for the purpose of taking possession of any of Tenant’s property located within the Demised Premises, as authorized by law and/or the terms of this Lease, change the lock(s) to the Demised Premises, Landlord shall be obligated to provide Tenant with reasonable access to the Demised Premises, as it operates as a bank under laws that require Tenant to protect and to preserve deposits and assets belonging to Tenant’s customers and/or funds belonging to the United States Federal Reserve Bank. Such access can be reasonably limited by Landlord until Tenant shall have first (1) brought current all rentals and other sums or charges due to Landlord under the provisions of this Lease (but if Landlord has theretofore formally terminated Tenant’s right of possession of the Demised Premises or has terminated this Lease pursuant to the provisions above, then Landlord shall be under no obligation to provide the new key(s) to Tenant regardless of Tenant’s payment of past due rentals or other sums or charges due hereunder, damages or any other payments or amounts of any kind or nature whatsoever); (2) fully cured and remedied to Landlord’s satisfaction all other defaults of Tenant under this Lease (but if such defaults are not subject to cure, such as early vacation, desertion or abandonment of the Demised Premises, then Landlord shall not be obligated to provide the new key(s) to Tenant under any circumstances); and (3) given Landlord security and assurances satisfactory in all respects to Landlord, in Landlord’s sole discretion, that Tenant intends to and is able to meet and comply with Tenant’s future obligations under this Lease, both monetary and non- monetary.

(f)    Pursuit of any of the above and foregoing remedies shall not preclude the pursuit by Landlord of any other rights or remedies set forth in any other section of this Lease and/or any other rights or remedies provided at law or in equity. Forbearance by Landlord to enforce one or more of the remedies herein provided (or other remedies available to Landlord at law or in equity) upon the occurrence of an Event of Default shall not be deemed or construed to constitute a waiver of such Event of Default.

(g)    In the event of any Event of Default occurring pursuant to the provisions of Section 24(d) of this Lease and involving the filing of any petition under any chapter or section of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), any assumption and assignment of this Lease must conform with the requirements of the Bankruptcy Code, which provides, in part, that Landlord must be provided with adequate assurances (i) of the source of rent and other consideration due under this Lease; (ii) that the financial condition and operating performance of any proposed assignee and its guarantors, if any, shall be similar to the financial condition and operating performance of Tenant and its guarantors, if any, as of the date of execution of this Lease; (iii) that any percentage rent due under this Lease will not decline substantially; and (iv) that any assumption or assignment is subject to all of the provisions of this Lease (including, but not limited to, restrictions as to use) and will not breach any such provision contained in any other lease, financing agreement or other agreement relating to the Demised Premises. Further:

(i)    In order to provide Landlord with the assurances contemplated by the Bankruptcy Code, Tenant must fulfill the following obligations, in addition to any other reasonable obligations that Landlord may require, before any assumption of this Lease is effective: (i) all defaults under Section 19(a)

 

21


of this Lease must be cured within ten (10) business days after the date of assumption; (ii) all other defaults under Section 19 of this Lease, other than under subsection (d) of Section 19, must be cured within fifteen (15) business days after the date of assumption; (iii) all actual monetary losses incurred by Landlord (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) must be paid to Landlord within ten (10) business days after the date of assumption; and (iv) Landlord must receive, within ten (10) business days after the date of assumption, a security deposit in the amount of six (6) months of Monthly Rent (using the Monthly Rent in effect for the first full month immediately following the assumption), both sums to be held by Landlord and deemed to be rent under this Lease for the purposes of the Bankruptcy Code as amended and from time to time in effect.

(ii)    In the event this Lease is assumed by Tenant in accordance with the requirements of the Bankruptcy Code and Tenant subsequently proposes to assign this Lease, then, in addition to any other reasonable conditions that Landlord may require Tenant to meet prior to consenting to such assignment, Tenant shall provide: (i) a financial statement of the proposed assignee prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied, though on a cash basis, which reveals a net worth in an amount sufficient, in Landlord’s reasonable judgment, to assure the future performance by the proposed assignee of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease; or (ii) a written guaranty by one or more guarantors with financial ability sufficient to assure Landlord of the future performance of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, such guaranty to be in a form and content satisfactory to Landlord and to cover the performance of all Tenant’s obligations under this Lease.

 

21.

COSTS OF SUIT

If either party brings action for relief against the other, declaratory or otherwise, arising out of this Lease, the unsuccessful party shall pay the successful party its commercially reasonable costs incurred in connection with and in preparation for said action, including its attorneys’ fees. If Landlord, without fault on Landlord’s part, is made a party to any action instituted by Tenant or a third party against Tenant or by or against any person holding under or using the Demised Premises by sublease or license of Tenant (whether or not permitted under this Lease), or for the foreclosure of any lien for labor or material furnished to or for Tenant or any such other person, or otherwise arising out of or resulting from any act or omission of Tenant or of any such other person, Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless from any judgment rendered in connection therewith and all costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Landlord in connection with such action. Landlord shall likewise indemnify, defend and hold Tenant harmless from any action against Tenant brought by Landlord or by any third-party making claims, with Tenant having no fault for the action or allegations against Landlord, with all costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Tenant in connection with such action.

 

22.

SURRENDER OF DEMISED PREMISES

(a)    Surrender. On expiration or termination of this Lease, Tenant shall surrender to Landlord the Demised Premises, and all Tenant’s improvements thereto and alterations thereof, broom clean and in good condition (except for ordinary wear and tear occurring after the last necessary maintenance made by Tenant), and shall remove all of its personal property including any signs, notices and displays and any leasehold improvements required by Landlord to be removed. Tenant shall perform all restoration made necessary by the removal of any such improvements or alterations or personal property, prior to the expiration of the Lease Term. If any such removal would damage the Demised Premises, Tenant shall give Landlord prior written notice thereof and Landlord may elect to make such removal at Tenant’s expense or otherwise to require Tenant to post security for such restoration. Landlord may retain or dispose of in any manner any such improvements or alterations or personal property that Tenant does not remove from the Demised Premises on expiration or termination of the Term as allowed or required by this Lease. Title to any such improvements or alterations or personal property that Landlord so elects to retain or dispose of shall vest in Landlord. Tenant waives all claims against Landlord for any damage or loss to Tenant arising out of Landlord’s retention or disposition of any such improvements, alterations or personal property.

 

22


Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for Landlord’s costs of storing, removing and disposing of any such improvements, alterations or personal property. If Tenant fails to surrender the Demised Premises to Landlord on expiration or termination of this Lease as required by this Section, Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless from all damages, loss, cost and expense (including attorneys’ fees) arising out of or in connection with Tenant’s failure to surrender the Demised Premises.

(b)    Holding Over. If Tenant holds over after the expiration of the Term hereof, with or without the express or implied consent of Landlord, such tenancy shall constitute a tenancy at sufferance, and not a renewal hereof or an extension for any further term, and in such case Rent shall be payable at a rental in the amount of one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Rent in effect as of the last month of the Term hereof and at the time specified in this Lease, and such month-to-month tenancy shall be subject to every other term, covenant and agreement contained herein. The foregoing shall not, however, be construed as a consent by Landlord to any holding over by Tenant and Landlord reserves the right to require Tenant to surrender possession of the Demised Premises upon expiration or termination of this Lease.

 

23.

TRANSFER OF LANDLORD’S INTEREST

Landlord shall have the right to assign its interest in this Lease to any party in Landlord’s sole discretion. If Landlord sells or transfers its interest in the Demised Premises (other than a transfer for security purposes) Landlord shall be released from all obligations and liabilities accruing thereafter under this Lease, but only if and upon Landlord’s successor assuming, in writing, Landlord’s obligations under this Lease. Any prepaid Rent or other funds of Tenant in the hands of Landlord at the time of transfer shall be delivered to such successor. Tenant agrees to attorn to the purchaser or assignee, provided all of Landlord’s obligations hereunder are assumed in writing by such successor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord’s successor shall not be liable to Tenant for any such funds of Tenant which Landlord does not deliver to the successor.

 

24.

ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING

(a)    Right to Transfer. Tenant shall not transfer this Lease or any interest therein (any sale, assignment, sublease, transfer, mortgage, pledge, hypothecation or encumbrance of this Lease shall be deemed a “Transfer”), and shall not sublet, or grant licenses or concessions in respect of, the Demised Premises, or any part thereof, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be withheld unreasonably by Landlord. In the event that Tenant proposes any Transfer, Tenant shall notify Landlord in writing by certified mail, return receipt requested, or Federal Express or such similar service that provides tracking, at least sixty (60) days before the date on which the Transfer is to be effective, and, included with such notice, furnish Landlord with: (a) the name of the entity receiving such Transfer (the “Transferee”); (b) a detailed description of the business of the Transferee; (c) financial statements of the Transferee, unless such Transferee is a publicly traded company or such financial statements are otherwise publicly available; (d) all written agreements governing the Transfer; (e) if the Transferee is an individual, a true and correct copy of the Transferee’s driver’s license; (f) any information reasonably requested by Landlord with respect to the Transfer or the Transferee; (g) the Transfer Fee (hereinafter defined); and (h) (if the Transfer consists of less than all of the Demised Premises) a floor plan showing the portion of the Demised Premises to be transferred. Landlord reserves the right to reasonably increase the amount of the Transfer Fee if Tenant requests an expedited response time from Landlord or if Tenant requests Landlord’s review of any attempted Transfer already consummated by Tenant but made without Landlord’s prior written consent in violation hereof.

(b)    Landlord’s Rights. Within thirty (30) business days of Landlord’s receipt of any Transfer request and any additional information requested by Landlord concerning the proposed Transferee’s financial responsibility, Landlord will notify Tenant of its election to do one of the following: (1) consent to the proposed Transfer; or (2) refuse such consent. Any Transferee approved by Landlord shall expressly assume in writing the obligations of Tenant hereunder.

 

23


(c)    Excess Rental. If Landlord shall give its consent to any assignment, sublease or transfer of the Demised Premises, Tenant shall, in consideration therefor, pay to Landlord, as additional Rent, fifty percent (50%) of any rents, additional charges, or other consideration payable under the assignment, sublease or transfer by the assignee, sublessee or transferee to Tenant that are in excess of the Rent accruing during the Term of the sublease in respect of the assigned, subleased or transferred space, together with the reasonable costs incurred by Landlord in connection with such assignment, subletting or transfer (at the rate per square foot payable by Tenant hereunder) pursuant to the terms hereof (including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, all sums paid for the sale or rental of Tenant’s fixtures or leasehold improvements, less, in the case of the sale thereof, the then net unamortized or undepreciated cost thereof determined on the basis of Tenant’s Federal income tax returns), less the costs actually incurred by Tenant for commissions (at fair market rates), advertising and subtenant leasehold improvements, all of such costs to be amortized without interest over the length of the sublease term. The sums payable under this subparagraph shall be paid to Landlord as and when payable by the assignee, sublessee or other transferee to Tenant. Within fifteen (15) business days after written request therefor by Landlord, Tenant shall at any time and from time to time furnish evidence to Landlord of the amount of all such sums or other consideration received or expected to be received. Tenant immediately and irrevocably assigns to Landlord, as security for Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, all rent from any subletting of all or any part of the Demised Premises, and Landlord, as assignee and as attorney-in-fact for Tenant for purposes hereof, or a receiver for Tenant appointed on Landlord’s application, may collect such rents and apply same toward Tenant’s obligations under this Lease; except that, until the occurrence of an act of default by Tenant, Tenant shall have the right and license to collect such rents.

(d)    Liability of Tenant. No consent by Landlord to any Transfer by Tenant shall relieve Tenant of any obligation to be performed by Tenant under this Lease, whether occurring before or after such Transfer. The consent by Landlord to any Transfer shall not relieve Tenant from the obligation to obtain Landlord’s express prior written consent to any other future Transfer, in no event shall any permitted subtenant transfer its sublease, further sublet all or any portion of its sublet space, or otherwise suffer or permit the sublet space, or any part thereof, to be used or occupied by others, except upon compliance with, and subject to, provisions of this Section. The acceptance by Landlord of payment from any other person shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Landlord of any provision of this Lease or to be a consent to any subsequent transfer or sublease, or to be a release of Tenant from any obligation under this Lease. The joint and several liability of Tenant and any immediate or remote successor in interest to Tenant, and the due performance of the obligations of this Lease on Tenant’s part to be performed or observed, shall not be discharged, released or impaired in any respect by any agreement or stipulation made by Landlord extending the time of, or modifying any of the obligations of, this Lease, or by any waiver or failure of Landlord to enforce any of the obligations of this Lease, except as expressly set forth above.

(e)    Assumption of Obligations. Each Transferee of Tenant shall assume 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 the performance of all the terms, covenants, conditions and agreements herein contained on Tenant’s part, to be performed for the Term of this Lease. No transfer shall be binding on Landlord unless the Transferee or Tenant delivers to Landlord a counterpart of the instrument of transfer in recordable form which contains a covenant of assumption by the Transferee satisfactory in substance and form to Landlord, and consistent with the requirements of this Section. The failure or refusal of the Transferee to execute such instrument of assumption shall not release or discharge the Transferee from its liability to Landlord hereunder. Landlord shall have no obligation whatsoever to perform any duty to or respond to any request from any sublessee, it being the obligation of Tenant to administer the terms of its subleases.

(f)    Fees for Review. Simultaneously with the giving of the notice described in Section 30(b) above, Tenant shall pay to Landlord or Landlord’s designee a non-refundable fee in the amount of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) as reimbursement for expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with reviewing each such transaction.

 

24


(g)    Corporate or Partnership Transfers. If Tenant is a privately held corporation, or is an unincorporated association or partnership, the cumulative or aggregate transfer, assignment or hypothecation of fifty percent (50%) or more of the total stock or interest in such corporation, association or partnership shall be deemed a Transfer within the meaning and provisions of this Section. This Section shall, however, not apply to transactions with a corporation (i) into or with which Tenant is merged or consolidated, (ii) to which substantially all of Tenant’s assets are transferred, or (iii) that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Tenant, provided that, in any of such events:

(i)    The successor of Tenant has a tangible net worth, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, at least equal to the net worth of Tenant herein named on the date of this Lease;

(ii)    Proof satisfactory to Landlord of such net worth shall have been delivered to Landlord at least ten (10) business days prior to the effective date of such transaction;

(iii)    Any such Transfer shall be subject to all of the terms and provisions of this Lease, and such Transferee shall assume, in a written document reasonably satisfactory to Landlord and delivered to Landlord promptly upon the Transfer, all the obligations of Tenant under this Lease;

(iv)    Tenant shall remain fully liable for all obligations to be performed by Tenant under this Lease; and

(v)    Tenant shall reimburse Landlord, promptly on demand, for Landlord’s reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in conjunction with the processing and documentation of any such transaction.

(h)    Involuntary Assignment. No interest of Tenant in this Lease shall be assignable by operation of law (including without limitation, the transfer of this Lease by testacy or intestacy). Each of the following acts shall be considered an involuntary assignment: (i) if Tenant is or becomes bankrupt or insolvent, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or institutes a proceeding under any bankruptcy law in which Tenant is the bankrupt; or, if Tenant is a partnership or consists of more than one person or entity, if any partner of the partnership or other such person or entity is or becomes bankrupt or insolvent, or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors; (ii) if a writ of attachment or execution is levied on this Lease; (iii) if, in any proceeding or action to which Tenant is a party, a receiver is appointed with authority to take possession of the Demised Premises. An involuntary assignment shall constitute an Event of Default by Tenant and Landlord shall have the right to elect to terminate this Lease, in which case this Lease shall not be treated as an asset of Tenant.

 

25.

ATTORNMENT

If any proceeding is brought for default under or termination of any ground or underlying lease to which this Lease is subject, or in the event of foreclosure or the exercise of the power of sale under any mortgage or deed of trust made by Landlord covering the Demised Premises, Tenant shall attorn to the successor landlord and recognize that successor as “Landlord” under this Lease, provided such successor expressly agrees in writing to be bound to all future obligations by the terms of this Lease, and, if so requested, Tenant shall enter into a new lease with that successor on the same terms and conditions as are contained in this Lease (for the unexpired Term of this Lease then remaining).

 

26.

SUBORDINATION

Without the necessity of any additional document being executed by Tenant for the purpose of effecting a subordination, this Lease shall be subject and subordinate at all times to: (i) all ground or underlying leases which may now exist or hereafter be executed affecting the Demised Premises, and (ii) the lien of any first mortgage or first deed of trust which may now exist or hereafter be executed in any

 

25


amount for which the Demised Premises, such ground or underlying leases, or Landlord’s interest or estate in any of them, is specified as security. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to subordinate or cause to be subordinated any such ground or underlying leases or any such liens to this Lease. If any ground or underlying lease terminates for any reason, Tenant shall, notwithstanding any subordination, attorn to and become Tenant of the successor in interest to Landlord at the option of such successor in interest. Tenant covenants and agrees to execute and deliver, upon demand by Landlord and in such form as shall be reasonably requested by Landlord, any documents (including a commercially reasonable subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement in favor of Landlord’s lender) evidencing the priority or subordination of this Lease with respect to any such ground or underlying leases or the lien of any such first mortgage or first deed of trust, and failure of Tenant to do so shall be an Event of Default hereunder. Tenant hereby irrevocably appoints Landlord as its attorney-in-fact to execute, deliver, and record any such documents in the name and on behalf of Tenant if Tenant fails to comply with the foregoing.

 

27.

ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE

Tenant shall from time to time, but no more than three (3) times per any twelve (12) month period, and within ten (10) business days after prior written notice from Landlord, execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord a statement in writing in such form as may be reasonably required by Landlord’s Mortgagee or any prospective purchaser of the Demised Premises (i) certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or, if modified, stating the nature of such modification and certifying that this Lease, as so modified, is in full force and effect) and the date to which the Rent and other charges are paid in advance, if any, (ii) acknowledging that there are not, to Tenant’s knowledge, any uncured defaults on the part of Landlord hereunder, or specifying such defaults if they are claimed, and (iii) containing such other matters as are set forth in such form. Any such statement may be conclusively relied upon by Landlord and any prospective purchaser or Mortgagee of the Demised Premises. Tenant’s failure to deliver such statement within such time shall be conclusive upon Tenant that this Lease is in full force and effect, without modification except as may be represented by Landlord, that there are no uncured defaults in Landlord’s performance, and that not more than one month’s Rent has been paid in advance. Failure of Tenant to so deliver such statement shall be an Event of Default hereunder. Tenant hereby irrevocably appoints Landlord as its attorney-in-fact to execute and deliver such statement to any third party in the name and on behalf of Tenant if Tenant fails to comply with the foregoing.

 

28.

QUIET ENJOYMENT

So long as Tenant pays all Rent and other sums due under this Lease, performs its covenants and obligations under this Lease and recognizes any successor to Landlord in accordance with the terms of this Lease, Tenant shall lawfully and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Demised Premises without hindrance or molestation by Landlord or anyone claiming by, through or under Landlord, subject, however, to all the provisions of this Lease.

 

29.

WAIVER OF REDEMPTION BY TENANT

If at any time the law for the State in which the Demised Premises is located provides for any statutory or common-law right of redemption, then to the maximum extent allowable by such law as then in effect, Tenant hereby waives for Tenant and for all those claiming under Tenant, all right now or hereafter existing to redeem by order or judgment of any court or by any legal process or writ, Tenant’s right of occupancy of the Demised Premises after any termination of this Lease.

 

30.

LANDLORD’S LIEN

To secure the payment of all Rent due and to become due hereunder, the faithful performance of this Lease by Tenant, and to secure all other indebtedness and liabilities of Tenant to Landlord now existing or hereafter incurred, Tenant hereby grants to Landlord an express first and prior contract lien and security

 

26


interest on all property which may be placed in the Demised Premises, and also upon all proceeds of any insurance which may accrue to Tenant by reason of destruction of or damage to any such property, and also upon all of Tenant’s interest as lessee and rights and options to purchase fixtures, equipment and chattels placed in the Demised Premises (in case of fixtures, equipment and chattels leased to Tenant which are placed in the Demised Premises). All exception laws are hereby waived in favor of said lien and security interest and in favor of Landlord’s statutory lien. These lien and security interests are given in addition to Landlord’s statutory lien and shall be cumulative thereto. This lien and security interest may be foreclosed with or without court proceedings by public or private sale as permitted by Florida law, provided Landlord gives Tenant at least ten (10) business days’ notice of the time and place of said sale, and Landlord shall have the right to become the purchaser, upon being the highest bidder at such sale. The notice referred to in the preceding sentence may (but need not be) given by Landlord to Tenant contemporaneously with any other notice from Landlord to Tenant. Tenant hereby authorizes Landlord to file Uniform Commercial Code Financing Statements in sufficient form so that when properly filed, the security interest hereby given shall thereupon be perfected. If requested hereafter by Landlord, Tenant shall also execute and deliver to Landlord Uniform Commercial Code Financing Statement change instruments in sufficient form to reflect any proper amendment of, modification in or extension of the aforesaid contract lien and security interest hereby granted. Landlord shall, in addition to all of its rights hereunder, also have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code for the state in which the Demised Premises is located.

 

31.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

The Rules and Regulations (herein so called) attached hereto as Exhibit “H” are expressly made a part hereof. Tenant agrees to comply with such Rules and Regulations and any reasonable amendments, modifications or additions thereto, as may hereafter be adopted and published by notice to Tenant, and to cause its concessionaires, agents, contractors and employees to comply therewith, and that the violation of the Rules and Regulations by any of them shall constitute an Event of Default by Tenant under this Lease. Tenant shall use its best efforts to cause its customers, invitees and licensees to comply with the Rules and Regulations. If there is a conflict between the Rules and Regulations and any of the provisions of this Lease, the provisions of this Lease shall prevail.

 

32.

NOTICES

Any notice, demand or communication required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be personally served, deposited in the United States mails, duly registered or certified with postage fully prepaid thereon or by Federal Express or other reputable overnight courier service, addressed to the other party at the address set forth in Section 1 hereof, or to such other address requested in writing by either party upon thirty (30) business days’ written notice to the other party. Notices shall be deemed to have been given upon the date same is post-marked if sent by registered or certified mail or the day deposited with Federal Express or such reputable overnight courier or the day sent if by personal service, but shall not be deemed received until the date of actual receipt or the first date that attempted service is rejected.

 

33.

NON-WAIVER

No delay or omission in the exercise of any right or remedy of Landlord for any default by Tenant shall impair such right or remedy or be construed as a waiver. The receipt and acceptance by Landlord of delinquent payments shall not constitute a waiver of any other default, and shall not constitute a waiver of timely payment of the particular payment involved. No act or conduct of Landlord, including, without limitation, the acceptance of keys to the Demised Premises, shall constitute an acceptance of the surrender of the Demised Premises by Tenant before the expiration of the Term. Only an express notice to such effect from Landlord to Tenant shall constitute acceptance of the surrender of the Demised Premised sufficient to terminate this Lease. Landlord’s consent to or approval of any act by Tenant requiring Landlord’s consent or approval shall not constitute a consent or approval of any subsequent act by Tenant. Any waiver by Landlord of any default must be in writing and shall not be a waiver of any other default concerning the same or any other provision of this Lease.

 

27


34.

COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS

Tenant shall operate the Demised Premises in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and municipal laws, ordinances and regulations and shall not knowingly, directly or indirectly, make any use of the Demised Premises which is prohibited by any such laws, ordinances or regulations.

 

35.

MISCELLANEOUS

(a)    Not an Offer. The submission of this document for examination and negotiation does not constitute an offer to lease, or a reservation of, or an option for, the Demised Premises.

(b)    Execution. This document becomes effective and binding only upon execution and delivery hereof by Tenant and by Landlord. No act or omission of any employee or agent of Landlord or of Landlord’s broker shall alter, change or modify any of the provisions hereof.

(c)    Landlord and Tenant. As used in this Lease, the words “Landlord” and “Tenant” include the plural as well as the singular. Words used in the neuter gender include the masculine and feminine and words in the masculine or feminine gender include the neuter. If there is more than one person or entity constituting Landlord or Tenant, the obligations imposed hereunder upon Landlord or Tenant are joint and several. If Tenant consists of a husband and wife, the obligations of Tenant hereunder extend individually to the sole and separate property of each of them as well as to their community property. The obligations contained in this Lease to be performed by Landlord shall be binding on Landlord’s successors and assigns only during their respective periods of ownership of the Demised Premises.

(d)    Brokers. Tenant represents and warrants that it has not engaged a broker that may be due a commission in connection with this Lease, and Landlord represents and warrants that any broker engaged by Landlord shall be compensated, if at all, exclusively by Landlord with no amount(s) due from Tenant. Each party shall indemnify and hold the other party harmless from all damages (including attorneys’ fees and costs) resulting from any claims that may be asserted by any broker, finder, or other person claiming by, through or under the party (except that Landlord shall pay the Broker in accordance with the Brokerage Agreement). In the event this Lease shall be terminated for any reason prior to the natural expiration of the initial Term of the Lease, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the unamortized portion of the aggregate of any commission paid by Landlord, said amortization to be computed on a straight line basis over the Primary Term.

(e)    Parking; Cross Access and Parking Easement. Tenant and Tenant’s customers and invitees shall have the exclusive right to park on the Demised Premises, including the Expansion Parcel, as defined in Section 2(d), at no charge to Tenant during banking hours. Landlord may allow other tenants of the Shopping Center to park on the Demised Premises but only during non-banking hours. Additionally, Landlord hereby grants to the Tenant, its employees, agents, contractors, representatives, licensees, suppliers and invitees (collectively, “Tenant’s Agents”), a non-exclusive right of ingress and egress across the Shopping Center along the access routes existing now or in the future existing within the Shopping Center, for the sole purposes of (i) providing vehicular and pedestrian access to the Demised Premises for Tenant and Tenant’s Agents to conduct the Permitted Use, (ii) allowing construction, installation, repairs and maintenance to be performed on the Demised Premises in accordance with the Lease, subject to any permits or approvals required by the Lease, that the Landlord may reasonably require or as required by applicable laws, and (iii) cross-parking by Tenant and Tenant’s Agents on any parking areas on the Shopping Center property (the “Cross Parking Easement”). The Cross Parking Easement does not include any grant of rights to Tenant and Tenant’s Agents (A) in or to any Landlord’s or its tenant’s improvements, buildings or facilities, (B) to permanently park any vehicles, or (C) to unreasonably interfere with or block

 

28


any of the access ways made available hereunder except in cases of emergency. Landlord reserves the right at any time, and from time to time, to reasonably designate access routes on or to the Shopping Center to be utilized by Tenant and Tenant’s Agents. Landlord also reserves the right to allow patrons of the Shopping Center and any other adjacent parcels owned by Landlord or its affiliates as of the Effective Date, to utilize all access points and drive aisles on the Parcel for pedestrian and vehicular ingress and egress.

Additionally, in the event governmental authorities require that any access point to Timberlane Road be closed on either the Demised Premises or on the Shopping Center, then for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the Effective Date, such party whose access point is closed shall be permitted, at such party’s expense, to create a curb cut between the Demised Premises and the Shopping Center on the eastern or western boundary of the Demised Premises to facilitate access to Timberlane Road by both parties. In the event Landlord transfers the Demised Premises or the Shopping Center to another person or entity, the rights set forth in this Section 35(e) shall be memorialized in an access and parking easement or declaration of reciprocal easements or similar document, a copy of which shall be provided to Tenant upon recording in the Public Records.

(f)     Intentionally Omitted.

(g)    Recordability of Lease. Tenant agrees that in no event shall this Lease or a memorandum hereof be recorded unless signed by Landlord and Tenant, in a form reasonably acceptable to Landlord.

(h)    Matters of Record. This Lease and Tenant’s rights hereunder are subject and subordinate in all respects to matters affecting Landlord’s title recorded in the official records of the county recorder’s office for the county in which the Demised Premises is located prior or subsequent to the date of execution of this Lease, which Tenant shall fully comply with. Tenant agrees that as to its leasehold estate it, and all persons in possession or holding under it, will conform with and will not violate any such covenants, conditions and restrictions, or other matters, of record.

(i)    Severability. If any provision of this Lease shall, to any extent, be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease shall not be affected thereby, and every other term and provision of this Lease shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

(j)    Construction. All provisions hereof, whether covenants or conditions, shall be deemed to be both covenants and conditions. The definitions contained in this Lease shall be used to interpret this Lease.

(k)    Interest. Except as expressly provided otherwise in this Lease, any amount due to Landlord which is not paid when due shall bear interest from the date due, at the prime commercial rate of interest published from time to time by The Wall Street Journal as the base rate on corporate loans posted by at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the nation’s thirty (30) largest banks, plus two percent (2%) per annum, but not to exceed the maximum rate of interest allowable under the law (the “Default Rate”). Payment of such interest shall not excuse or cure any default by Tenant under this Lease.

(l)    Binding Effect; Choice of Law. Except as expressly provided otherwise in this Lease, all of the provisions hereof shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns. This Lease shall be governed by the laws of the state where the Demised Premises is located.

(m)    Time; Rights Cumulative. Time is of the essence of each and every obligation under this Lease, except as to the provisions relating to delivery of possession of the Demised Premises to Tenant. All rights and remedies of the parties shall be cumulative and non-exclusive of any other remedy at law or in equity.

 

29


(n)    Inability to Perform. This Lease and the obligations of Tenant hereunder shall not be affected or impaired because Landlord is unable to fulfill any of its obligations hereunder or is delayed in doing so, if such inability or delay is caused by reason of force majeure, strike, labor troubles, acts of God, acts of government, governmental delays, unavailability of materials or labor, or any other cause beyond the control of Landlord (the “Permitted Delays”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) nothing contained in this Section shall excuse either party from paying in a timely fashion any payments required to be made under this Lease, when due under the terms of this Lease, (ii) financial inability or inconvenience shall never excuse or delay the performance of any obligations under this Lease, and (iii) with respect to Tenant’s construction obligations under Section 6(b) and Exhibit “E” hereof, (a) no delay under this Section shall be effective unless Tenant shall have notified Landlord of the delay within ten (10) business days of the event giving rise to such delay, and (b) no delay under this Section shall be permitted in connection with delays caused by local governmental ordinances, codes or regulations in effect as of the date of this Lease or the implementation of same.

(o)    Corporate Authority. If Tenant is a corporation or a limited liability company, each individual executing this Lease on behalf of Tenant represents and warrants: (i) that he is duly authorized to execute and deliver this Lease on behalf of Tenant, (ii) that Tenant is in good standing in its state of organization, (iii) is qualified to do business in the state where the Demised Premises is located, and (iv) shall deliver appropriate certification to that effect if requested.

(p)    Intentionally omitted.

(q)    Submittal of Financial Statement. At any time and from time to time during the Term of this Lease, within fifteen (15) business days after request therefor by Landlord, Tenant shall supply to Landlord and/or any Mortgagee a current financial statement or such other financial information as may reasonably be required by any such party, only if Tenant is not publicly traded or its financial information is not publicly available.

(r)    No Partnership. Nothing herein contained, either in the method of computing Rent or otherwise, shall create between the parties hereto, or be relied upon by others as creating, any relationship or partnership, association, joint venture, or otherwise. The sole relationship of the parties hereto shall be that of landlord and tenant.

(s)    Waiver of Trial by Jury. Landlord and Tenant desire and intend that any disputes arising between them with respect to or in connection with this Lease be subject to expeditious resolution in a court trial without a jury. Therefore, Landlord and Tenant each hereby waives the right to trial by jury of any cause of action, claim, counterclaim or cross-complaint in any action, proceeding or other hearing brought by either Landlord against Tenant or Tenant against Landlord or any matter whatsoever arising out of, or in any way connected with, this Lease, the relationship of Landlord and Tenant, Tenant’s use or occupancy of the Demised Premises or any claim of injury or damage, or the enforcement of any remedy under any law, statute, or regulation, emergency or otherwise, now or hereafter in effect.

(t)    Interpretation. Sectional headings in this Lease are solely for convenience of reference and shall not in any way limit or amplify the terms and provisions hereof.

LANDLORD’S AND TE NANT’S WORK

ARTICLE I.

CONSTRUCTION OF THE DEMISED PREMISES

Landlord shall complete Landlord’s Work in accordance with Article III below. Landlord agrees to coordinate with Tenant and Tenant’s architect related to Landlord’s Work or Tenant’s Work, provided that Tenant and Tenant’s architect timely respond to and review any Landlord comments.

ARTICLE II.

GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS

A.    Within ninety (90) days after the Delivery Date, Tenant shall submit to Landlord drawings and specifications for Tenant’s proposed improvements to the Demised Premises (“Tenant’s Plans”). Upon submission to Landlord, Tenant’s Plans must be complete, sufficient to obtain a building permit, and ready for Landlord’s consideration and final approval. So long as Tenant’s civil drawings contain at least the same or more pervious area and drainage capacity set forth on Exhibit A-1, Landlord’s shall incorporate any pervious area or drainage capacity deficiencies into its civil plans for the Shopping Center.

B.    Upon review, Landlord shall, in writing, accept or notify Tenant of its objections to Tenant’s Plans within thirty (30) business days after receipt of Tenant’s Plans. Should there be any Landlord objections, Tenant shall respond to any objections within ten (10) business days of receipt of Landlord’s written objections. Landlord shall review any revised Tenant’s Plans within ten (10) business days after receipt, and provide written acceptance or additional rejections. The process will continue using the above timeframes until Tenant’s Plans are approved. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any loss or extra cost which may result to Landlord by reason of failure on the part of Tenant to submit any such plans, diagrams, designs, schedules, specifications and/or other data within said period of time, or, alternatively, and at Landlord’s sole option, Landlord may elect to terminate this Lease by reason of such failure by giving ten (10) business days written notice of such election to Tenant (whereupon Landlord shall have no further obligations to Tenant hereunder unless Tenant remedies said failure during the ten (10) day notice period, in Landlord’s reasonable discretion). ). The Parties hereby agree to use good-faith and prompt cooperation to prepare and adhere to a project schedule (“Joint Project Coordination Plan”) that incorporates staged and phased construction by both parties, so all work and improvements are properly scheduled and coordinated to ensure quality and timely construction and completion, while using commercially reasonable efforts to avoid duplicative or unreasonably disruptive work by either of the Parties.

C.    Tenant shall secure Landlord’s written approval of Tenant’s Plans before commencing Tenant’s Work. Material changes to Tenant’s Plans shall be made only by written change order describing the scope of work and exact cost of same signed by both parties; it being expressly acknowledged and agreed that non-material modifications to Tenant’s Plans previously approved by Landlord shall not require Landlord’s prior written consent.
