R E C I T A L S :
A. WHEREAS, Reckson Court Square, LLC (Landlord), a Delaware limited liability company, and Sublandlord entered into a certain lease, dated as of May 12, 2005 (the Lease), pursuant to which Landlord leased to Sublandlord the entire building located (the Building) located at One Court Square, Long Island City, New York, all as more particularly described in the Master Lease (a redacted copy of which Lease is attached hereto as Exhibit A and by this reference made a part hereof);
B. WHEREAS, Sublandlord desires to sublease to Subtenant a portion of the Building being the entire rentable area of the forty fourth (44th) floor of the Building consisting of approximately 31,749 rentable square feet, as more particularly indicated by crosshatching on Exhibit B attached hereto (the Premises), and Subtenant desires to hire the Premises from Sublandlord on the terms and conditions contained herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained, it is mutually agreed as follows:
1. Subleasing of Premises. Sublandlord hereby subleases to Subtenant, and Subtenant hereby hires from Sublandlord, the Premises, upon and subject to the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth. This Sublease is contingent upon the non-disapproval of this Sublease by the New York Insurance Department (the Non-Disapproval) on or before the Commencement Date (the Non-Disapproval Contingency). If the Non-Disapproval does not occur on or before the Commencement Date, then Subtenant shall have the option by written notice given to Sublandlord on the Commencement Date, time being of the essence with respect to the giving of such notice, to either terminate this Sublease for all purposes effective as of the Commencement Date (the Non-Disapproval Termination Option) or waive the Non-Disapproval Contingency set forth above. If the Non-Disapproval does not occur on or before the Commencement Date and the Subtenant does not on the Commencement Date exercise in writing the Non-Disapproval Termination Option, then Subtenant will be deemed to have irrevocably waived the Non-Disapproval Contingency and Subtenants Non-Disapproval Termination Option shall automatically be deemed null and void.
2. Term; Renewal Options.
2.1 The term (the Term) of this Sublease shall commence on the later of (i) September 1, 2009 or (ii) the date that an executed counterpart of this Sublease is delivered to Landlord in accordance with Section 7.07(a) of the Master Lease (the later of such dates, the Commencement Date) and shall terminate on the date that is one day prior to the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Commencement Date (the Expiration Date), or on such earlier date upon which the Term shall expire or be canceled or terminated pursuant to any of the conditions or covenants of this Sublease or the Master Lease, or pursuant to law, or such later date as the Term may be extended in accordance with Section 26 of this Sublease. Subtenant shall not have any option to extend the term of this Sublease except as expressly set forth in Section 26 herein.
2.2 If Sublandlord is unable or fails to deliver possession of the Premises on the Commencement Date (i) Sublandlord shall not be subject to any liability for failure to give possession, (ii) Subtenant waives the right to recover any damages which may result from such failure to give possession and agrees that the provisions of this Section 2.2 shall constitute an express provision to the contrary within the meaning of Section 223(a) of the New York Real Property Law, and (iii) the Commencement Date shall be postponed until the date of notice given to Subtenant stating that the Premises are ready for delivery to Subtenant.
3. Base Rent and Additional Rent.
3.1 Commencing on the Commencement Date Subtenant shall pay to Sublandlord, as base rent (Base Rent) during the Term (subject to adjustment on January 1 as set forth below) the sum of Eight Hundred Nine Thousand Five Hundred Ninety Nine and 50/100 ($809,599.50) Dollars per annum, payable in equal monthly installments of Sixty Seven Thousand Four Hundred Sixty Six and 63/100 ($67,466.63) Dollars in advance no later than three (3) business days prior to the first (1st) day of each month during the Term. The installment of Base Rent for the first full calendar month of the Term following the Commencement Date shall be due and payable upon the execution of this Sublease. If the Commencement Date shall occur on a date other than the first day of any calendar month, the Base Rent payable hereunder for such month shall be prorated on a per-diem basis and shall be paid three (3) days prior to the first day of the first full month following the Commencement Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, upon written notice from Sublandlord to Subtenant, the Base Rent will be adjusted by Sublandlord on January 1 of each calendar year of the Term or any extensions thereof based upon the Subtenants pro-rata share (which the parties agree is 2.27% calculated by taking the 31,749 rentable square feet of the 44th floor divided by the 1,401,609 rentable square feet of the building and then multiplying by 100) of increases or decreases in Sublandlords operating costs (sum of all building operating costs, including but not limited to maintenance and repair, water and sewer charges, building management, taxes, cleaning, utilities, electric, HVAC, and janitorial supplies) for the Building. Such adjustment of Base Rent shall be determined by Sublandlord in its sole and absolute discretion.
3.2 In addition to the Base Rent reserved herein, Subtenant agrees to pay to Sublandlord as additional rental all other payments for which Sublandlord shall become responsible to Landlord under the Lease in respect of the Premises, Subtenants use or occupancy thereof or by reason of any act or omission of Subtenant (collectively, the Additional Rent), including, without limitation, any payments accruing as a result of (i) any increases in insurance premiums as provided in Article 9 of the Master Lease resulting from any act or omission of Subtenant, (ii) any additional rent payable on account of Subtenants use of extra heating, ventilation or air conditioning (before 8am and after 6pm on weekdays and anytime on weekends overtime HVAC will be paid by Subtenant as Additional Rent at the rate of $75.00 per hour or portion thereof) and (iii) any additional rent payable on account of any services provided to Subtenant other than basic maintenance, repair and cleaning of the Premises. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of Section 3.1 and 3.2, Subtenant shall not be obligated to pay Sublandlord additional rent for real estate taxes, operating expenses, electric and water charges, except to the extent that the same may be increased as a result of Subtenants particular manner of use or occupancy of the Premises.
3.3 If Subtenant shall fail to pay when due any installment of Base Rent, Additional Rent or other costs, charges and sums payable by Subtenant hereunder (such Additional Rent or other costs, charges and sums, together with Base Rent, hereinafter collectively referred to as the Rental), Subtenant shall pay to Sublandlord, in addition to such installment of Base Rent or Rental, as the case may be, as a late charge and as additional rent, a sum equal to interest at the Applicable Rate (hereinafter defined) per annum on the amount unpaid, commencing from the date such payment was due to and including the date of payment. The Applicable Rate shall be the rate equal to the lesser of (a) two (2) percentage points above the rate of interest announced from time to time by Citibank, N.A. as its prime, reference or corporate base rate, changing as and when said prime, reference or corporate base rate changes or (b) the maximum rate permitted by applicable law.
3.4 All Base Rent and other Rental shall constitute rent under this Sublease, and shall be payable to Sublandlord at its address as set forth in Article 13 hereof, unless Sublandlord shall otherwise so direct in writing.
3.5 Subtenant shall promptly pay the Rental as and when the same shall become due and payable without setoff, offset or deduction of any kind whatsoever, except as expressly set forth herein, and, in the event of Subtenants failure to pay the same when due (subject to grace periods provided herein), Sublandlord shall have all of the rights and remedies provided for herein or at law or in equity, in the case of non-payment of rent.
3.6 Sublandlords failure during the Term to prepare and deliver any statements or bills required to be delivered to Subtenant hereunder, or Sublandlords failure to make a demand under this Sublease shall not in any way be deemed to be a waiver of, or cause Sublandlord to forfeit or surrender its rights to collect any Rental which may have become due pursuant to this Sublease during the Term. Subtenants liability for Rental due under this Sublease accruing during the Term, and Sublandlords obligation to refund overpayments of or adjustments to Rental paid to it by Subtenant, shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Sublease.
4. Use. Subtenant shall use and occupy the Premises for general office purposes and for no other purpose and otherwise in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Master Lease. Under no circumstances shall Tenant use the Premises for any use prohibited by Section 2.04 of the Master Lease
5. Covenants with Respect to the Master Lease.
5.1 Subtenant shall not do anything that would constitute a default under the Master Lease or omit to do anything that Subtenant is obligated to do under the terms of this Sublease so as to cause there to be a default under the Master Lease.
5.2 The time limits set forth in the Master Lease for the giving of notices, making demands, performance of any act, condition or covenant, or the exercise of any right, remedy or option, are changed for the purpose of this Sublease, by lengthening or shortening the same in each instance, as appropriate, so that notices may be given, demands made, or any act, condition or covenant performed, or any right, remedy or option hereunder exercised, by Sublandlord or Subtenant, as the case may be (and each party covenants that it will do so) within three (3) days prior to the expiration of the time limit, taking into account the maximum grace period, if any, relating thereto contained in the Master Lease. Each party shall promptly deliver to the other party copies of all notices, requests or demands which relate to the Premises or the use or occupancy thereof after receipt of same from Landlord.
6. Subordination to and Incorporation of the Master Lease.
6.1 Subtenant hereby acknowledges that it has read and is familiar with the provisions of the Master Lease and agrees that this Sublease is in all respects subject and subordinate to the terms and conditions of the Master Lease and to all matters to which the Master Lease is subject and subordinate. In addition, this Sublease shall also be subject to and Subtenant accepts this Sublease subject to any amendments, modifications or supplements to the Master Lease hereafter made, provided that Sublandlord shall not enter into any amendment, modification or supplement that would prevent or materially adversely affect the use by Subtenant of the Premises in accordance with the terms hereof, increase the obligations of the Subtenant or decrease its rights hereunder, shorten the Term hereof or increase the Rental required to be paid by subtenant hereunder. Subtenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Sublandlord for and against, any and all losses, damages, penalties, liabilities, costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable and
necessary attorneys fees and reasonable and necessary disbursements, which may be sustained or incurred by Sublandlord by reason of Subtenants failure to keep, observe or perform any of the terms, provisions, covenants, conditions and obligations (i) on Sublandlords part to be kept, observed or performed under the Master Lease to the extent same shall have been incorporated herein and Subtenant is not incapable of observing or performing such covenant or obligation because it is personal to Sublandlord, (ii) on the part of Subtenant to be kept, observed or performed under this Sublease, including without limitation arising from Subtenants holding over, failure to vacate or surrender the Premises upon expiration or sooner termination of this Sublease, or (iii) otherwise arising out of or with respect to Subtenants use and occupancy of the Premises from and after the Commencement Date. The provisions of this Section 6.1 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Master Lease and/or this Sublease, except to the extent any of the foregoing is caused by the sole negligence of Sublandlord.
6.2 Except as otherwise expressly provided in, or otherwise inconsistent with, this Sublease, or to the extent not applicable to the Premises, the terms, provisions, covenants, stipulations, conditions, rights, obligations, remedies and agreements contained in the Master Lease are incorporated in this Sublease by reference, and are made a part hereof as if herein set forth at length, Sublandlord being substituted for the Landlord under the Master Lease, Subtenant being substituted for the Tenant under the Master Lease, Premises being substituted for Premises under the Master Lease, Base Rent being substituted for Fixed Rent under the Master Lease, Additional Rent being substituted for Additional Charges under the Master Lease, except that the following provisions of the Master Lease are hereby modified, or deemed deleted therefrom or which deleted provision(s) shall have no force and effect as between Sublandlord and Subtenant:
(a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Article 1 of the Master Lease or elsewhere in the Master Lease, the term of this Sublease and Base Rent payable under this Sublease and the amount of the Security required of Subtenant shall be as set forth in Sections 2, 3 and 18 herein.
(b) All amounts payable hereunder by Subtenant shall be payable directly to Sublandlord.
(c) The provisions of Articles, 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 28, 29, 31, 33, 36, 39, 40, 41, 43, and 44, Sections 2.02, 2.03, 5.02, 5.03, 5.04, 9.06, 9.08, 9.09, 9.10, 16.04, 16.05, 35.17 Exhibits A, C, I, and J and the Schedules 1, 2 and 3 of the Master Lease shall not apply to this Sublease.

Section 21.01 shall be modified so as to delete that portion of Section 21.01 beginning with the phrase, other than those on the 7th line down from the top of Section 21.01 through and including the phrase provided in this lease on the 12th line down from the top of Section 21.01.
7. Landlords Performance Under Master Lease; Services, Repairs and Alterations.
7.1 Except to the extent caused by Subtenants negligence or willful misconduct, Sublandlord shall at Sublandlords cost and expense, maintain and repair the Premises in its condition as of the Commencement Date, reasonable wear and tear and damage by fire and other casualty excepted. If any repairs or maintenance is required due to the negligence or willful misconduct of Subtenant, Subtenant shall reimburse Sublandlord for the cost thereof upon demand as Additional Rent hereunder.
7.2 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Sublease or in the Master Lease, Sublandlord shall not be required to provide any of the services that Landlord has agreed to provide pursuant to the Master Lease (or required by law) or take any other action that Landlord has agreed to provide, furnish, make, comply with, or take, or cause to be provided, furnished, made, complied with or taken under the Master Lease, but Sublandlord agrees to use all diligent efforts, at Subtenants sole cost and expense with respect to the Premises, to obtain the same from Landlord (provided, however, that Sublandlord shall not be obligated to use such efforts or take any action which might give rise to a default under the Master Lease), and Subtenant shall rely upon and look solely to Landlord for the provision, furnishing or making thereof or compliance therewith. Subtenant shall not have any claim against Sublandlord by reason of the Landlords failure or refusal to comply with the provisions of the Master Lease, unless such failure or refusal is a result of Sublandlords act or failure to act. If Landlord shall default in the performance of any of its obligations under the Master Lease, Sublandlord may, upon reasonable request and at the sole cost and expense of Subtenant (including but not limited to payment of all of Sublandlords attorneys fees and costs), timely institute and diligently prosecute any action or proceeding which Subtenant and Sublandlord, in their reasonable judgment, deem meritorious, in order to have Landlord make such repairs, furnish such electricity, provide such services or comply with any other obligation of Landlord under the Master Lease or as required by law. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, Sublandlord shall have no obligation to institute or diligently prosecute any action or proceeding which Subtenant could bring directly against Landlord without Sublandlord being a party to such action or proceeding. Subtenant shall protect, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Sublandlord from and against any and all such claims arising from or in connection with such request, action or proceeding. This indemnity and hold harmless agreement shall include indemnity from and against any and all liability, fines, suits, demands, costs and expenses of any kind or nature, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys fees and disbursements, incurred in connection with any such claim, action or proceeding brought thereon. Subtenant shall not make any claim against Sublandlord for any damage which may arise, nor shall Subtenants obligations hereunder be diminished, by reason of (i) the failure of Landlord to keep, observe or
perform any of its obligations pursuant to the Master Lease, unless such failure is due to Sublandlords negligence or misconduct, or (ii) the acts or omissions of Landlord, its agents, contractors, servants, employees, invitees or licensees. The provisions of this Section 7.2 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Term hereof.
7.3 Subtenant shall not make or allow to be made any alterations, changes, additions or improvements (collectively, Alterations) to the Premises or any part thereof without the prior written consent of Landlord and Sublandlord, which consent Sublandlord will not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay. Prior to the commencement of any Alteration, Subtenant shall prepare for Sublandlords approval complete and final architectural plans and specifications and engineering plans and specifications (Subtenants Plans) for the Alterations at Subtenants expense. Such Subtenants Plans will reflect improvements of high quality and design in accordance with the Building standards and becoming of first-class office space in Long Island City, New York. Sublandlord shall deliver written approval of or objections to such Subtenants Plans to Subtenant within fifteen (15) business days after Sublandlords receipt of all of the Subtenants Plans. If Sublandlord does not approve the Subtenants Plans within such time period, Sublandlords consent to Subtenants Plans shall be deemed denied. Subtenants Plans shall comply with all governmental requirements and Sublandlords approval of Subtenants Plans shall not constitute an implication, representation or certification that Subtenants Plans and/or the Subtenant Work (as hereinafter defined) are in compliance with governmental requirements. If Landlord and Sublandlord shall consent to any Alterations to the Premises, such Alterations shall be subject to any terms, covenants, conditions and agreements which Landlord or Sublandlord may reasonably prescribe from time to time, which shall include (i) a requirement that Subtenants laborers work in harmony with Sublandlords laborers, (ii) a requirement that Subtenant utilize only contractors and subcontractors that are approved by Sublandlord, (iii) Subtenant providing Sublandlord with additional insurance coverage as reasonably requested by Sublandlord in connection with such Alterations, (iv) Subtenant providing Sublandlord with an indemnity reasonably satisfactory to Sublandlord in connection with such Alterations, and (v) a requirement that, prior to the commencement of any Alterations to the Premises, Subtenant deliver to Landlord and Sublandlord written acknowledgments from all materialmen, contractors, artisans, mechanics, laborers and any other persons furnishing any labor, services, materials, supplies or equipment to Subtenant with respect to the Premises that they will look exclusively to Subtenant for payment of any sums due in connection therewith and that Landlord and Sublandlord shall have no liability for such costs. All Alterations to the Premises made or requested by Subtenant shall be at Subtenants sole cost and expense. Upon the expiration or sooner termination of the Term, Subtenant shall deliver the Premises to Sublandlord in the same condition it was in on the Term Commencement Date, reasonable wear and tear excepted. Any Alterations to the Premises, excepting movable furniture and trade fixtures, shall become the property of Landlord and shall be surrendered with the Premises, unless Landlord or Sublandlord shall direct Subtenant to remove any such Alterations. In such event, Subtenant shall on or before the Expiration Date remove same at its sole risk cost and expense and restore or repair in a good and workmanlike manner any damage to the
Premises occasioned by such removal and restore the Premises to the condition existing prior to such Alterations, normal wear and tear accepted. In the event Subtenant fails to restore or repair the Premises or to remove its personal property and trade fixtures, Sublandlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to enter the Premises and perform such restoration, repair or removal at Tenants expense and to charge Tenant as Additional Rent for the cost of such work.
8. Consents. Subtenant agrees that whenever Sublandlords consent or approval is required hereunder (except in connection with Article 17 hereof, pursuant to which Sublandlord may withhold consent or approval it its sole and absolute discretion), or where something must be done to Sublandlords satisfaction, Sublandlord will not unreasonably withhold or condition Sublandlords consent; provided, however, that whenever the consent or approval of Landlord, the lessor under a superior lease, or the mortgagee under a mortgage, as the case may be, is also required pursuant to the terms of the Master Lease, if Landlord, the lessor under a superior lease, or the mortgagee under a mortgage shall withhold its consent or approval for any reason whatsoever, Sublandlord shall be deemed to have denied its consent or approval.
9. Termination of Lease.
9.1 In the event of a default under the Master Lease which results in the termination of the Master Lease, Subtenant shall in accordance with the provisions of Section 7.07 of the Master Lease, at the option of Landlord, attorn to and recognize Landlord as landlord hereunder and shall, promptly upon Landlords request, execute and deliver all instruments necessary or appropriate to confirm such attornment and recognition. Subtenant hereby waives all rights under any present or future law to elect, by reason of the termination of Lease, to terminate this Sublease or surrender possession of the Premises. Sublandlord shall not be liable to Subtenant by reason of such termination of the Master Lease or by reason of a termination of the Master Lease by either Landlord or Sublandlord.
9.2 If any one or more of the following events shall occur, that is to say:
(a) The Subtenant shall become insolvent or shall take the benefit of any present or future insolvency statute, or shall make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or file a voluntary petition in bankruptcy or a petition or answer seeking an arrangement or its reorganization or the readjustment of its indebtedness under the federal bankruptcy laws or under any other law or statute of the United States or of any state thereof, or consent to the appointment of a receiver, trustee, or liquidator of all or substantially all of its property; or
(b) By order or decree of a court the Subtenant shall be adjudged bankrupt or an order shall be made approving a petition filed by any of its creditors or by any of the stockholders of the Subtenant, seeking its reorganization or the readjustments of its indebtedness under the federal bankruptcy laws or under any law or statute of the United States or of any state thereof, provided that if any such judgment or order is stayed or vacated within sixty (60) days after the entry thereof, any notice of cancellation shall be and become null, void and of no effect; or
(c) By or pursuant to, or under authority of any legislative act, resolution or rule, or any order or decree of any court or governmental board, agency or officer having jurisdiction, a receiver, trustee or liquidator shall take possession or control of all or substantially all of the property of the Subtenant, and such possession or control shall continue in effect for a period of thirty (30) days; or
(d) The Subtenant shall voluntarily abandon, desert or vacate the Premises or discontinue its operations at the Premises or, after exhausting or abandoning any right of further appeal, the Subtenant shall be prevented for a period of thirty (30) days by action of any governmental agency other than the Sublandlord having jurisdiction thereof, from conducting its operations at the Premises, regardless of the fault of the Subtenant; or
(e) Any lien is filed against the Premises because of any act or omission of the Subtenant and shall not be discharged of record, or by bonding through an insurance company duly authorized to write such bonds in New York State, within thirty (30) days after the Subtenant has received notice thereof; or
(f) The letting hereunder or the interest or estate of the Subtenant under this Sublease shall be transferred directly by the Subtenant or shall pass to or devolve upon, by operation of law or otherwise, any other person, firm or corporation; or
(g) A petition under any part of the federal bankruptcy laws or an action under any present or future insolvency law or statute shall be filed against the Subtenant and shall not be dismissed within sixty (60) days after the filing thereof; or
(h) The Subtenant violates the provisions of Section 17.1 of this Sublease; or
(i) The Subtenant shall fail duly and punctually to pay the rentals or to make any other payment required hereunder when due to the Sublandlord and shall continue in its failure to pay rentals or fees or to make any other payment required hereunder for a period of five (5) days after the due date thereof; or
(j) The Subtenant shall fail to keep, perform and observe each and every other promise, covenant and agreement set forth in this Sublease on its part to be kept, performed, or observed, within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of default thereunder from the Sublandlord (except where fulfillment of its obligation requires activity over a period of time and the Subtenant shall have commenced to perform whatever may be required for fulfillment within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice and continues such performance without interruption except for causes beyond its control);
Then, upon the occurrence of any such event of default or at any time thereafter during the continuance thereof, in addition to all other rights and remedies of Sublandlord as a result of such default, Sublandlord shall have the right to terminate this Sublease upon at least five (5) business days written notice to Subtenant identifying the termination date hereof. In the event Sublandlord exercises its right to terminate this Sublease, this Sublease shall terminate on the date set forth in Sublandlords termination notice as if such termination date were the original Expiration Date of the Term of this Sublease, but Subtenant shall remain liable under this Sublease as a result of such event of default.
9.3 No acceptance by the Sublandlord of rentals, fees, charges or other payments in whole or in part for any period or periods after a default of any of the terms, covenants and conditions hereof to be performed, kept or observed by the Subtenant shall be deemed a waiver of any right on the part of the Sublandlord to terminate the letting.
9.4 No waiver by the Sublandlord of any default on the part of the Subtenant in performance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions hereof to be performed, kept or observed by the Subtenant shall be or be construed to be a waiver by the Sublandlord of any other or subsequent default in performance of any of the said terms, covenants and conditions.
9.5 Without limiting any applicable cure periods available to the Subtenant as set forth in this Sublease, the rights of termination described above shall be in addition to any other rights of termination provided in this Sublease and in addition to any rights and remedies that the Sublandlord would have at law or in equity consequent upon any breach of this Sublease by the Subtenant, and the exercise by the Sublandlord of any right of termination shall be without prejudice to any other such rights and remedies.
9.6 Subtenant specifically waives the right of redemption provided or in New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law § 761, and any similar or successor statute.
9.7 Notwithstanding anything contained in this Sublease to the contrary, in the event that Subtenant at any time is not owned and controlled, directly or indirectly, by Sublandlord, then Sublandlord and Subtenant shall each have the option to terminate this Sublease upon no less than twelve (12) months (measured from the effective date of such change in ownership or control) written notice to the other party identifying the termination date hereof (the Early Termination Option). In the event Sublandlord or Subtenant validly exercises the Early Termination Option upon at least twelve (12) months prior written notice to the other party identifying the termination date hereof, this Sublease shall terminate on the date set forth in the termination notice as if such termination date were the original Expiration Date of the Term of this Sublease.
10. Sublease, Not Assignment. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, this Sublease shall be deemed to be a sublease of the Premises and not an assignment, in whole or in part, of Sublandlords interest in the Master Lease.
11. Damage, Destruction, Fire and Other Casualty. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Sublease or the provisions of the Master Lease herein incorporated by reference, Subtenant shall not have the right to terminate this Sublease as to all or any part of the Premises, or be entitled to an abatement of Rent or any other item of Rental, by reason of a casualty or condemnation affecting the Premises unless Sublandlord is entitled to terminate the Master Lease or is entitled to a corresponding abatement with respect to its corresponding obligation under the Master Lease. If Sublandlord is entitled to terminate the Master Lease for all or any portion of the Premises by reason of casualty or condemnation, Subtenant may terminate this Sublease as to any corresponding part of the Premises by written notice to Sublandlord given at least five (5) business days prior to the date(s) Sublandlord is required to give notice to Landlord of such termination under the terms of the Master Lease. Notwithstanding anything contained in the Master Lease to the contrary, as between Sublandlord and Subtenant only, all insurance proceeds or condemnation awards received by Sublandlord under the Master Lease shall be deemed property of Sublandlord.
12. No Waivers. Failure by Sublandlord in any instance to insist upon the strict performance of any one or more of the obligations of Subtenant under this Sublease, or to exercise any election herein contained, shall in no manner be or be deemed to be a waiver by Sublandlord of any of Subtenants defaults or breaches hereunder or of any of Sublandlords rights and remedies by reason of such defaults or breaches, or a waiver or relinquishment for the future of the requirement of strict performance of any and all of Subtenants obligations hereunder. Further, no payment by Subtenant or receipt by Sublandlord of a lesser amount than the correct amount or manner of payment of Rental due hereunder shall be deemed to be other than a payment on account, nor shall any endorsement or statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment be deemed to effect or evidence an accord and satisfaction, and Sublandlord may accept any checks or payments as made without prejudice to Sublandlords right to recover the balance or pursue any other remedy in this Sublease or otherwise provided at law or equity.
13. Notices. Any notice, statement, demand, consent, approval, advice or other communication required or permitted to be given, rendered or made by either party to the other, pursuant to this Sublease or pursuant to any applicable law or requirement of public authority (collectively, Notices) shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been properly given, rendered or made only if sent by personal delivery, receipted by the party to whom addressed, or registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, posted in a United States post office station in the continental United States, addressed (i) to Subtenant at its address set forth below or at the Premises, and (ii) to Sublandlord, at its addresses set forth below.
