Notwithstanding any possible provision to the contrary contained herein, the Rental payable hereunder during any year of this Lease shall not be reduced despite any decrease which may be shown by the Consumer Price Index.

If 13 <PAGE> LESSOR elects to continue the Lease, the rental and pro rata expenses shall be reduced in proportion to the area of the Leased Premises so taken and LESSOR shall repair any damage to the Leased Premises, parking facilities, or Building resulting from such taking. If any part of the Leased Premises is taken by condemnation or Eminent Domain, the LESSEE may elect to terminate this Lease or continue same in effect and if the LESSEE elects to continue this Lease, the rental and pro rata assessment shall be reduced in proportion to the area of the Leased Premises resulting from such taking.

WAIVER: Failure of LESSOR to declare any default immediately upon occurrence thereof, or delay in taking any action in connection therewith, shall not waive such default, but LESSOR shall have the right to declare any such default at any time and take such action as might be lawful or authorized hereunder, in law and/or in equity. No waiver by LESSOR of a default by LESSEE shall be implied, and no express waiver by LESSOR shall affect any default other than the default specified in such waiver and that only for the time and extension therein stated. No waiver of any term, provision, condition or covenant of this Lease by LESSOR shall be deemed to imply or constitute a further waiver by LESSOR of any other term, provision, condition or covenant of this Lease. The rights and remedies created by this Lease are cumulative and the use of one remedy shall not be taken to exclude or waive the right to the use of another. 32. RIGHT OF ENTRY: LESSOR, or any of its agents, shall have the right to enter the Leased Premises during all reasonable hours, to examine the same or to make such repairs, additions or alterations as may be deemed necessary for the safety, comfort or preservation thereof, or of said Building, or to exhibit said Leased Premises at any time within one hundred eighty (180) days before the expiration of this Lease.

Reference in this section to parking areas and/or facilities 16 <PAGE> shall in no way be construed as giving LESSEE hereunder any rights and/or privileges in connection with such parking areas and/or facilities unless such rights and/or privileges are expressly set forth in Section 17 hereof. 36. SURRENDER OF PREMISES: LESSEE agrees to surrender to LESSOR, at the end of the Term of this Lease and/or upon any cancellation of this Lease, said Leased Premises in as good condition as said Leased Premises were at the beginning of the Term of this Lease, ordinary wear and tear and damage by fire or other casualty not caused by LESSEE'S negligence, excepted. LESSEE agrees that if LESSEE does not surrender said Leased Premises to LESSOR at the end of the Term of this Lease, then LESSEE will pay to LESSOR two (2) times the monthly rent and two (2) times the monthly pro rata expense assessment paid in the final month of LESSEE'S term hereunder for each month that LESSEE holds over; in addition, LESSEE shall pay all damages that LESSOR may suffer on account of LESSEE'S failure to so surrender to LESSOR possession of said Leased Premises, and will indemnify and save LESSOR harmless from and against all claims made by any succeeding tenant of said Leased Premises against LESSOR on account of delay of LESSOR in delivery possession of said Leased Premises to said succeeding tenants so far as such delay is occasioned by failure of LESSEE to so surrender said Leased Premises in accordance herewith or otherwise. No receipt of money by LESSOR from LESSEE after termination of this Lease or the service of any notice of commencement of any suit or final judgment for possession shall reinstate, continue or extend the term of this Lease or affect any such notice, demand, suite or judgment. No act or thing done by LESSOR or its agents during the term hereby granted shall be deemed an acceptance of a surrender of the Leased Premises and no agreement to accept a surrender of the Leased Premises shall be valid unless it be made in writing and subscribed by a duly authorized officer or agent of LESSOR. 37.

WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY: It is mutually agreed by and between LESSOR and LESSEE that the respective parties hereto shall and they hereby do waive trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either of the parties hereto against the other on any matter arising out of or in any way connected with this Lease, the relationship of LESSOR and LESSEE and LESSEE'S use of or occupancy of the Premises. LESSEE further agrees that it shall not interpose any counterclaim or counterclaims in a summary proceeding or in any action based upon non-payment of rent or any other payment required of LESSEE hereunder. 41. SUBSTITUTION OF SPACE: LESSOR expressly reserves the right at LESSOR'S sole cost and expense, to remove LESSEE from the Leased Premises and to relocate LESSEE in some other space of LESSOR'S choosing of approximately the same dimensions and size within the Buildings, which other space shall be decorated by LESSOR at LESSOR'S expense. LESSOR shall have the right, in LESSOR'S sole discretion, to use such decorations and materials from the existing Premises, or other materials, so that the space in which LESSEE is relocated shall be comparable to its interior design and decoration to the Premises from which LESSEE is removed; provided, however, that if LESSOR exercises its election to remove and relocate LESSEE in other space within said Building, which is at that time leasing for a higher rate of Base Rental, then LESSEE shall not be required to pay the difference between the Base Rental of the Premises and the higher Base Rental of the space in which LESSEE is relocated. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to relieve LESSEE, or imply that LESSEE is relieved, of the liability for or obligation to pay any additional rent due by reason of the provisions of Section 5 of this Lease, the provisions of which Section shall be applied to the space in which LESSEE is relocated on the same basis as said provisions were applied to the Premises from which LESSEE is removed. LESSEE agrees that LESSOR'S exercise of its election to remove and relocate LESSEE shall not terminate this Lease or release LESSEE, in whole or in part, from LESSEE'S obligation to pay the rents and perform the covenants and agreements hereunder for the full Term of this Lease. 42. DEFAULT UNDER OTHER LEASE: If the terms of any lease, other than this Lease, made by LESSEE for any other space in Building II, shall be terminated or terminable after the making of this Lease because of any default by LESSEE under such other Lease, such default shall, ipso facto, constitute a default hereunder and empower LESSOR, at LESSOR'S sole option, to terminate this Lease as herein provided in the event of default. 18 <PAGE> 43. SEVERABILITY: If any term, provision, covenant or condition of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such terms, provisions, covenant or condition to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable shall not be affected thereby and each term, provision, covenant or condition of this Lease shall be valid and be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
