AGREEMENT RE RIGHT OF FIRST OFFER TO PURCHASE

AND OPTIONS TO PURCHASE

     This Agreement Re Right of First Offer to Purchase and Options to Purchase (hereinafter referred to as the “Option Agreement”) is made and entered into this 31st day of July, 2003 by and between PLAYA VISTA – WATER’S EDGE, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Optionor”), and ELECTRONIC ARTS INC., a Delaware corporation (“Optionee”).

R E C I T A L S:

     A.        Optionor is the owner of certain real property situated in the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, State of California, as more particularly described on Exhibit “1” attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference (the “Real Property”), which Real Property is currently improved with two (2) office buildings designated hereinafter as “Building 1” and “Building 2” located at 5510 and 5570 Lincoln Boulevard, respectively, Los Angeles, California. Optionor and Optionee acknowledge that Optionor may, in the future, construct another building on the Real Property, to be referred to herein as “Building 3”. Building 1, Building 2, and, when applicable, Building 3, together with the Real Property and all improvements thereon and appurtenances thereto are hereinafter, collectively, referred to as the “Project”. The Project is being developed in two phases (hereinafter, “Phase I” and “Phase II”). Phase I consists of the portion of the Real Property on which Building 1 and Building 2 are located, Building 1 and Building 2 and all improvements and appurtenances related thereto. Phase II consists of the that portion of the Real Property on which Building 3 will be located, Building 3, when constructed, and all improvements and appurtenances related thereto, including but not limited to, an approximately 60,000 square foot athletic field defined in the “Lease” (as defined below) as the “Field” (the “Field”) to be constructed in connection therewith. The portions of the Real Property on which each of Building 1, Building 2 and Building 3 are located are each separate, legally subdivided parcels, as shown in Exhibit A-1.

     B.        Pursuant to that certain Office Lease (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Lease”), by and between Optionor and Optionee, Optionee has agreed to lease from Optionor certain premises situated on Phase I, the Field and a portion of any parking garage hereafter which may be constructed under the Field. This Option Agreement shall not be applicable to Phase II of the Project or the sale of any portion thereof, except as specifically provided herein.

     C.        In connection with, and as partial consideration for, Optionee’s entering into the Lease, Optionor agrees to grant to Optionee (i) an ongoing right of first offer to purchase any and all permitted portions (as hereinafter set forth) of the Project that Optionor elects to sell at any time during the term of the Lease, including any extensions thereof (the “Lease Term”), provided Optionor shall only offer to sell to Optionee either all of Phase I, individually, or all of Phase I and Phase II, collectively, and may not sell or offer to sell only a portion of any applicable Phase, and Optionor shall not have the obligation to offer Phase II to Optionee, if Optionor intends to sell Phase II individually, (ii) an option to purchase Phase I of the Project, as of the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Lease Commencement Date (as that term is defined in the Lease) and (iii) an option to purchase Phase I of the Project as of the tenth (10th) anniversary of the Lease Commencement Date, each upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Option

Agreement, provided, however, both of the foregoing option rights shall be subject to “Optionor’s Put Option” (defined in Section 2.1.3 below). The ongoing right of first offer granted herein shall be independent of any option rights granted herein, and subject to the terms of this Option Agreement may be exercised at any time. Further, any sale to Optionee of Phase I only, must also include either a fee interest or an exclusive easement interest in the Field, and a reciprocal parking easement, as set forth in Section 17 below.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the parties’ mutual covenants hereinafter set forth and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

     1.   Right Of First Offer To Purchase. Provided that (i) Optionee or an “Optionee Affiliate” (as defined below) is still the “Tenant” under the Lease, (ii) Optionee is not in monetary default under the Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure periods at the time of Optionee’s exercise of the “Right of First Offer” (as defined below), provided Optionor has delivered to Optionee written notice hereunder, in addition to any notice required under the Lease, of such default and given Optionee at least five (5) business days following delivery of such notice to cure such default, and Optionee fails to cure the default within such period, (nothing herein shall modify Optionor’s rights or remedies as Landlord under the Lease) (iii) Optionee has not subleased more than 40% of the Premises under the Lease at the time of such exercise of the Right of First Offer hereunder and on the applicable “Closing Date,” as defined in the “Purchase Agreement” (as defined below), and (iv) Optionee has not assigned its rights under the Lease to any entity except to an Optionee Affiliate, Optionee or the Optionee Affiliate shall have, throughout the Lease Term, as such may be extended, an on ongoing right of first offer (the “Right of First Offer”) to purchase the portion of the Project as permitted under this Option Agreement that Optionor elects to sell to any party other than an “Optionor Affiliate” or a “Foreclosure Owner,” (as each such term is defined below) (such other party hereinafter referred to as an “Unaffiliated Third Party”), whether or not such Optionor Affiliate purchases a direct or indirect, or partial or total, interest in the “Offered Property” (defined below) or any entity directly or indirectly owning all or a part of the Project or such Foreclosure Owner purchases title to the Offered Property. For purposes of this Option Agreement, an “Optionor Affiliate” shall mean (a) (i) CA-Playa Vista Water’s Edge Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership, (ii) McGuire Partners SCS, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and (iii) McGuire Partners-PV Investor Partnership, L.P., California limited partnership, (iv) McGuire Properties Inc., a Maryland corporation, (v) Equity Office Properties Trust, and (vi) McGuire Partners Ltd., a California limited partnership (each of (a) (i)-(vi), an “Optionor Member”), or (b) an entity which is controlled by, controls or is under common control with Optionor or any Optionor Member, or (c) an entity which merges with or acquires or is acquired by Optionor or Optionor Member or a parent, subsidiary or member of Optionor or any Optionor Member, provided that if any entity acquires or merges with Optionor and such entity is not otherwise an Optionor Affiliate under items (a) or (b) of this Section 1, such acquiring entity after the acquisition or merger, shall not be deemed to be an Optionor Affiliate if the acquiring entity, in connection with such acquisition or merger, does not acquire any other material assets of any Optionor Member or (d) a transferee of substantially all of the assets or stock of Optionor or any Optionor Member, provided that if any entity acquires Optionor and such entity is not otherwise an Optionor Affiliate under items (a) or (b) of this Section 1, such acquiring entity after the acquisition shall not be deemed to be an Optionor Affiliate if the acquiring entity, in connection with such acquisition, does not acquire any other material assets of any Optionor

Member. For purposes of this Agreement, “control” shall mean the possession, direct or indirect, of the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of a person or entity, or majority ownership of any sort, whether through the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise. For purposes of this Option Agreement, a “Foreclosure Owner” shall be an entity or person that is a “Permitted Mortgage/Lien Holder” (defined in Section 15 below), which becomes the owner of all or a portion of the Project through a foreclosure by trustee’s power of sale, judicially or otherwise, or as a purchaser at a foreclosure sale or by deed in lieu (collectively, a “Foreclosure Event”). Optionee’s Right of First Offer shall be on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 1.

          1.1   Procedure for Offer. Prior to entering into any agreement to sell the Project, as a whole, or Phase I of the Project, individually, Optionor shall notify Optionee by written notice (the “First Offer Notice”) when and if Optionor desires to sell the Project or any permitted portion thereof, at any time during the Lease Term as the same may be extended, to an Unaffiliated Third Party, whether on the open market or pursuant to an existing offer to purchase received by Optionor, in any manner. Pursuant to such First Offer Notice, Optionor shall offer to sell the Project or the applicable permitted portion thereof (the “Offered Property”) to Optionee and such First Offer Notice shall be accompanied by a purchase and sale agreement in the form set forth in Exhibit 2 attached hereto (the “Purchase Agreement”), which Purchase Agreement shall: (A) set forth (i) the purchase price at which Optionor is willing to sell the Offered Property to Optionee (the “ROFO Purchase Price”), which ROFO Purchase Price shall be determined by Optionor, in Optionor’s sole and absolute discretion and need not be determined by Optionor in good faith, (ii) the required “Deposit” (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement), which Deposit shall not exceed three percent (3%) of the ROFO Purchase Price, (iii) the “Contingency Date” (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement), which shall in no event be less than thirty (30) days following the “Effective Date” (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement) of the Purchase Agreement, and (iv) the Closing Date, which shall in no event be less than sixty (60) days following the Effective Date of the Purchase Agreement; and (B) be executed by Optionor. If the Offered Property is comprised of Phase I, alone, the ROFO Purchase Price will include the value of the interest in the Field, as a fee interest or as an exclusive easement interest, as applicable, and the interest in the “Parking Easement” (defined in Section 17, below).

          1.2   Procedure for Acceptance.

               1.2.1   Acceptance of Offer by Optionee. If Optionee wishes to exercise its Right of First Offer in response to a First Offer Notice, then within ten (10) business days following Optionee’s receipt of the First Offer Notice (the “Optionee’s Notice Period”), Optionee shall notify Optionor in writing either (i) of Optionee’s exercise of the Right of First Offer or (ii) of Optionee’s interest in exercising the Right of First Offer, subject to a reservation of right to further negotiate the ROFO Purchase Price and/or any other terms of the First Offer Notice in its sole and absolute discretion (“Optionee’s Exercise Notice”). If Optionee does not reserve the right in Optionee’s Exercise Notice to further negotiate the ROFO Purchase Price and/or any other terms in the First Offer Notice, Optionee shall deliver to the escrow holder named in the Purchase Agreement (the “Escrow Holder) concurrent with Optionee’s delivery of Optionee’s Exercise Notice, the Deposit required in the Purchase Agreement and an executed copy of the Purchase Agreement. If, however, Optionee in Optionee’s Exercise Notice reserves the right to further negotiate as provided hereinabove, then Optionor shall negotiate with Optionee during a period not to exceed fifteen (15) business days following Optionor’s receipt of Optionee’s

     
  -3- ELECTRONIC ARTS
[ROFO/Option Agreement]

 


 

Exercise Notice (the “Negotiation Period”) the terms of the First Offer Notice, including, if requested by Optionee, the ROFO Purchase Price. Optionor will act in good faith as to scheduling and attending meetings with Optionee during the Negotiation Period, provided that nothing herein shall be deemed in any manner to require Optionor to agree to change any terms of Optionor’s First Offer Notice or the Purchase Agreement, and any such changes may be made or rejected by Optionor, in Optionor’s sole and absolute discretion, without any requirement that Optionor do so acting in good faith. If, during the Negotiation Period, Optionor and Optionee mutually agree upon a change in the ROFO Purchase Price and/or such other terms in the First Officer Notice, then prior to the expiration of the Negotiation Period, Optionor and Optionee shall execute the Purchase Agreement and deliver it to the Escrow Holder reflecting the agreed-upon changes, the “Effective Date” of the Purchase Agreement shall be deemed the date on which the Purchase Agreement is delivered to the Escrow Holder as fully executed by both parties, and Optionee shall concurrently deliver to the Escrow Holder the Deposit required under the Purchase Agreement. If Optionee delivers (a) Optionee’s Exercise Notice to Optionor, and (b) the Purchase Agreement and the Deposit to the Escrow Holder, prior to the expiration of Optionee’s Notice Period, without any request for further negotiation, the “Effective Date” of the Purchase Agreement shall be deemed the date on which the fully executed Purchase Agreement is delivered to the Escrow Holder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Optionee may at any time prior to the expiration of the Negotiation Period exercise the Right of First Offer by delivering the Purchase Agreement (with Optionor’s ROFO Purchase Price) and the Deposit to Escrow Holder. Optionor’s sale of the Offered Property to Optionee, and Optionee’s purchase thereof from Optionor, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement. If the Purchase Agreement terminates in accordance with the terms thereof, then (1) Optionee shall be entitled to withdraw Optionee’s Exercise Notice and receive an immediate refund of the entire Deposit then held by the Escrow Holder, (2) Optionee and Optionor shall be relieved from all obligations under the Purchase Agreement, and (3) Optionor shall, subject to any of Optionee’s rights under the Purchase Agreement, be free to thereafter sell the Offered Property to any Unaffiliated Third Party on any terms elected by Optionor in its sole discretion, but subject to the terms of Section 1.2.2 below. Further, if the Purchase Agreement is terminated after the Contingency Date, solely as a result of a default by Optionor, or pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement as a result of damage or destruction or condemnation, in addition to any remedies of Optionee under the Purchase Agreement, Optionee’s Right of First Offer hereunder shall be deemed to remain in full force and effect.

               1.2.2    Non-Acceptance of Offer by Optionee. If Optionee does not timely accept the terms of the First Offer Notice, or if Optionor and Optionee do not mutually agree upon the ROFO Purchase Price and/or such other terms in the First Offer Notice by the expiration of the Negotiation Period, and/or the Purchase Agreement terminates, in accordance with the terms thereof, then Optionor shall be free to sell the Offered Property, in the same configuration as offered to Optionee, to any Unaffiliated Third Party thereafter on any terms elected by Optionor in its sole discretion, provided that Optionor (i) enters into a fully executed purchase and sale agreement for the Offered Property with an Unaffiliated Third Party within nine (9) months following the expiration of Optionee’s Notice Period (or, if Optionee requests the right to negotiate in Optionee’s Exercise Notice, the expiration of the Negotiation Period), and (ii) consummates the sale of the Offered Property, in the same configuration as offered to Optionee, with such Unaffiliated Third Party as evidenced by recordation of a grant deed conveying the Offered Property to such Unaffiliated Third Party (a “Closing” or “Close”) within twelve (12) months following the expiration of Optionee’s Notice Period (or, if Optionee

requests the right to negotiate in Optionee’s Exercise Notice, the expiration of the Negotiation Period), provided Optionor shall not be required to re-offer the Offered Property to Optionee if any applicable purchase agreement entered into by Optionor within such period then remains executory and cannot be terminated by Optionor within such period, without resulting in the default of Optionor thereunder (the foregoing hereinafter referred to as a “Qualified Transaction”). In the event Optionor fails to enter into or Close a Qualified Transaction, following the expiration of the time periods allowed for a Qualified Transaction, Optionee’s Right of First Offer shall once again be applicable to the Offered Property.

               1.3   Term/Termination of Right of First Offer. The term of the Right of First Offer shall commence upon the full, unconditional, execution and delivery of the Lease and shall terminate:

                  1.3.1   In full, upon termination of the Lease for any reason.

                  1.3.2   With respect to an Offered Property, upon Optionee’s failure to timely exercise the Right of First Offer with respect to such Offered Property as set forth in Section 1.2 above (including timely execution of the Purchase Agreement and delivery of the Deposit), and, thereafter, the sale of such Offered Property under a Qualified Transaction.

                  1.3.3   With respect to an Offered Property, after the timely exercise of the Right of First Offer with respect to the Offered Property by Optionee with a request to further negotiate, and the failure of Optionee and Optionor to reach a mutual agreement to proceed with the purchase in accordance with the First Offer Notice and Purchase Agreement or any amendment thereof prior to the expiration of the Negotiation Period, and, thereafter, the sale of the Offered Property under a Qualified Transaction.

                  1.3.4   In full, upon the purchase of Phase I pursuant to the exercise of either of the Purchase Options in accordance with Section 2 below.

                  1.3.5   In full, upon the purchase of the Offered Property by a Foreclosure Owner.

          1.4   Quitclaim by Optionee. Upon the termination of the Right of First Offer pursuant to Section 1.3, above, in full, Optionee shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Optionor, within five (5) business days following request therefor from Optionor, a standard and customary quitclaim deed relinquishing all rights of Optionee to purchase the Offered Property pursuant to this Section 1.

     2.      Purchase Options

       2.1   Grant of Options.

                  2.1.1   First Purchase Option. Optionor hereby grants to Optionee an option to purchase all, but not less than all, of Phase I of the Project, together with either a fee interest or an exclusive easement interest in the Field and a reciprocal parking easement interest pursuant to Section 17 below (collectively, the “Option Property”) as of the date of the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Lease Commencement Date (the “First Purchase Option”), upon the terms and conditions set forth more particularly in this Section 2.

                  2.1.2   Second Purchase Option. Optionor hereby grants to Optionee an option to purchase the Option Property as of the date of the tenth (10th) anniversary of the Lease Commencement Date (the “Second Purchase Option”), upon the terms and conditions set forth more particularly in this Section 2. The date on which Optionee is required under the Purchase Agreement to purchase of the Option Property pursuant to either the First Purchase Option or the Second Purchase Option, which shall not be later than the date of the fifth (5th) or tenth (10th) anniversary, respectively, of the Lease, shall hereinafter be referred to as the “Option Purchase Date”.

                  2.1.3   Optionor’s Put Option. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.1, or elsewhere in this Option Agreement, in the event Optionee elects to exercise either the First Purchase Option or the Second Purchase Option, in either event, if Phase II of the Project remains undeveloped (i.e., the construction of Building 3 has not commenced) at the time Optionee delivers Optionee’s “Interest Notice” (defined in Section 2.2.1.1 below) Optionor shall have the right, by delivering written notice of such election (“Optionor’s Put Notice”) not later than fifteen (15) business days following Optionor’s receipt of Optionee’s Interest Notice to “put” Phase II to Optionee (“Optionor’s Put Option”), meaning, if Optionor timely delivers Optionor’s Put Notice, Optionee may exercise the applicable Option Right in accordance with Section 2.2.1 below only with respect to both Phase I and Phase II of the Project, in which event, for all purposes of this Option Agreement the “Option Property” shall be deemed to include both Phase I and Phase II of the Project. If Optionor fails to deliver Optionor’s Put Notice in the time permitted hereunder, Optionor shall be deemed to have waived Optionor’s Put Option.

               2.2   Exercise of Purchase Options/Determination of Option Purchase Price. Provided that Optionee or Optionee Affiliate is the “Tenant” under the Lease, Optionee or an Optionee Affiliate, as the case may be, may exercise either the First Purchase Option or the Second Purchase Option, and the purchase price for the Option Property in either event (the “Option Purchase Price”) shall be equal to the “Fair Market Value” (as defined below) of the Option Property, which shall be determined, at the applicable time, in accordance with the terms of Section 2.2.2 below, or such other price as may be agreed to between the parties, in accordance with the terms of Section 2.2.1, below. In the event that the Option Property, is solely Phase I, together with the fee interest or exclusive easement interest, as applicable, in the Field, and an interest in the Parking Easement, the value of the applicable interest in the Field and the interest in the Parking Easement shall be included in the determination of the Fair Market Value of the Option Property.

                  2.2.1   Exercise.

                     2.2.1.1   In the event Optionee wishes to exercise either the First Purchase Option or the Second Purchase Option, Optionee shall, not later than nine (9) months prior to the applicable Option Purchase Date, deliver to Optionor a written notice (“Interest Notice”) notifying Optionor of Optionee’s interest in exercising the applicable Purchase Option and requesting that Optionor deliver to Optionee the “Documents” identified in Sections 4.1.3 and 4.1.4 of the Purchase Agreement; provided, however, the Interest Notice shall not be deemed defective or invalid if Optionee fails to request delivery of the Documents therein. Optionor shall within fifteen (15) business days following receipt of Optionee’s Interest Notice, (i) deliver the Documents to Optionee or make the Documents readily available to Optionee for its review at the Project, and (ii) if applicable, deliver Optionor’s Put Notice.

                     2.2.1.2   Optionee shall have until the date which is sixty (60) days following receipt of all of the Documents (as evidenced by Optionee’s written acknowledgment of receipt of the Documents, which acknowledgment shall be deemed given if not received by Optionor or if Optionor does not receive objection thereto within five (5) business days after Optionee’s receipt of written request for such acknowledgment from Optionor) to deliver written notice (“Optionee’s Option Exercise Notice”) to Optionor that Optionee is interested in exercising the applicable Purchase Option, subject to the terms of this Section 2. Optionee’s Option Exercise Notice shall state the proposed Option Purchase Price at which Optionee is willing to purchase the Option Property (“Optionee’s Price Proposal”).

                     2.2.1.3   Within ten (10) business days after receipt of Optionee’s Price Proposal, Optionor shall deliver to Optionee written notice (the “Optionor’s Price Proposal”) which notice shall state either (i) that Optionor agrees to Optionee’s Price Proposal or (ii) that Optionor disagrees with Optionee’s Price Proposal and, in such event, Optionor’s Price Proposal shall also set forth Optionor’s proposed Option Purchase Price at which Optionor is willing to sell the Option Property, and (iii) advise Optionee as to whether Optionor believes a “GAAP Loss” (as defined below) exists and concurrently deliver Optionor’s “Final GAAP Loss calculation” (including, if applicable, the allocation between Phase I and Phase II) based on Optionee’s and/or Optionor’s Price Proposal, pursuant to Section 3.3, below.

                     2.2.1.4   If Optionor’s Price Proposal states that Optionor agrees with Optionee’s Price Proposal, whether or not Optionor states that there is a GAAP Loss, then Optionor and Optionee shall execute the Purchase Agreement, which Purchase Agreement shall not have a contingency period and shall reflect (i) the proposed Option Purchase Price, as agreed to by the parties, and (ii) the Closing Date, which shall not be later than the applicable Option Purchase Date, and deliver it to the Escrow Holder and Optionee shall deliver the Deposit to Escrow Holder. Upon Optionor’s and Optionee’s execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement, and Optionee’s delivery of the Deposit no further act on the part of either party shall be necessary to form a binding contract for the purchase and sale of the Option Property and the transaction shall proceed and close in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement.

                     2.2.1.5   If Optionor’s Price Proposal states that Optionor disagrees with Optionee’s Price Proposal, whether or not Optionor states that there is a GAAP Loss, Optionee shall, within ten (10) business days after receipt of Optionor’s Price Proposal, deliver written notice to Optionor (“Optionee’s Response Notice”) stating either (i) that Optionee irrevocably exercises the applicable Purchase Option and Optionee agrees to purchase the Option Property at the Option Purchase Price set forth in Optionor’s Price Proposal, in which event (A) Optionee and Optionor shall, within five (5) business days after Optionor’s receipt of Optionee’s Response Notice, modify and execute the Purchase Agreement to reflect the agreed upon Option Purchase Price and deliver the new Purchase Agreement to the Escrow Holder, (B) Optionee shall, concurrent with delivery of the Purchase Agreement, deliver the Deposit to the Escrow Holder, and (C) the transaction shall proceed and close in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement, as modified; or (ii) that Optionee irrevocably exercises the applicable Purchase Option, subject only to a determination of the applicable Option Purchase Price in accordance with the arbitration procedure set forth in Section 2.2.2 below, in which event Optionor and Optionee shall, within five (5) business days after Optionor’s receipt of Optionee’s Response Notice, execute the Purchase Agreement, subject to final determination of, and modification of the Purchase Agreement to reflect the Option Purchase Price as determined pursuant to Section 2.2.2 below, and deliver it to the Escrow Holder and concurrent with the

delivery of the Purchase Agreement, Optionee shall deliver the Deposit to Escrow Holder. Upon Optionor’s and Optionee’s execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement and Optionee’s delivery of the Deposit, no further act on the part of either party shall be necessary to form a binding contract for the purchase and sale of the Option Property and the transaction shall proceed and close in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement, subject only to determination of the applicable Option Purchase Price as set forth in Section 2.2.2 below, and modification of the Purchase Agreement to reflect such Option Purchase Price or (iii) that Optionee elects to withdraw Optionee’s Option Exercise Notice, in which event (A) the applicable Purchase Option shall be deemed terminated and of no further force and effect, and (B) Optionor shall be entitled thereafter to sell the Option Property to any party on any terms determined by Optionor in its sole discretion, subject only to (1) Optionee’s rights, if any, under Section 1 above, and (2) the Second Purchase Option if the terminated Purchase Option was the First Purchase Option.

                  2.2.2   Determination of Fair Market Value for the Project. In the event Optionee elects in Optionee’s Response Notice to exercise the applicable Purchase Option, subject to arbitration of the Option Purchase Price in accordance with this Section 2.2.2, the following terms shall apply:

                     2.2.2.1   Optionor and Optionee shall each appoint one unrelated neutral arbitrator who shall be certified as an MAI appraiser or as an ASA appraiser and shall have had at least ten (10) years experience within the previous fifteen (15) years as a real estate appraiser of office buildings in the County of Los Angeles area, with working knowledge of current market conditions and practices. For purposes hereof, an “MAI” appraiser means an individual who holds an MAI designation conferred by, and is an independent member of, the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers (or its successor organization, or in the event there is no successor organization, the organization and designation most similar), and an “ASA” appraiser means an individual who holds the Senior Member designation conferred by, and is an independent member of, the American Society of Appraisers (or its successor organization, or, in the event there is no successor organization, the organization and designation most similar). The determination of the arbitrators shall be limited solely to the issue area of whether the Option Purchase Price in Optionor’s Price Proposal or in Optionee’s Price Proposal, is the closest to the actual Fair Market Value of the Option Property determined by the arbitrators, taking into account the requirements of Section 2.3, below. Each such arbitrator shall be appointed within fifteen (15) days after Optionor’s receipt of Optionee’s Response Notice.

                     2.2.2.2   The two arbitrators so appointed shall within ten (10) days of the date of the appointment of the last appointed arbitrator agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator who shall have the same qualification as set forth in Section 2.2.2.1 above.

                     2.2.2.3   The three arbitrators shall within thirty (30) days of the appointment of the third arbitrator, (a) reach a decision as to the Fair Market Value of the Project and whether the proposed Option Purchase Price in Optionor’s Price Proposal or in Optionee’s Price Proposal is the closest to the Fair Market Value of the Project as determined by the arbitrators, and (b) simultaneously publish a ruling (the “Ruling”) indicating whether the proposed Option Purchase Price in Optionor’s Price Proposal or in Optionee’s Price Proposal is the closest to the Fair Market Value of the Project as determined by the arbitrators. Following the Ruling, the proposed Option Purchase Price selected by the arbitrators as being closest to the Fair Market Value of the Entire Project as determined by the arbitrators shall be deemed the

[ROFO/Option Agreement]

 


 

Option Purchase Price under the Purchase Agreement, and if necessary, the parties shall enter into an amendment to the Purchase Agreement reflecting the same.

                     2.2.2.4   The decision of the majority of the three arbitrators shall be binding upon Optionor and Optionee.

                     2.2.2.5   If either Optionor or Optionee fails to appoint an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after the date Optionor receives Optionee’s Response Notice, the arbitrator appointed by one of them shall reach a decision, notify Optionor and Optionee thereof, and such arbitrator’s decision shall be binding upon Optionor and Optionee.

                     2.2.2.6   If the two arbitrators fail to agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator, or both parties fail to appoint an arbitrator, then the appointment of the third arbitrator or any arbitrator shall be dismissed and the parties shall submit a request to the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers, or successor organization, to provide a list of five (5) qualified appraisers. Beginning with the appraiser appointed by Optionor, or Optionor, if no appraiser has been appointed, each appraiser or each party, as applicable, shall, within three (3) business days, strike the name of one (1) of the five (5) appraisers on such list, and the appraiser remaining after each appraiser or party, as applicable, has stricken two (2) names shall be the third appraiser.

                     2.2.2.7   The cost of the third appraiser shall be paid by Optionor and Optionee equally and they shall each pay their appointed appraiser.

                     2.2.2.8   If, for any reason, the arbitrators have not issued the Ruling by the applicable Option Purchase Date, the purchase transaction shall proceed based on an Option Purchase Price equal to the average of Optionor’s and Optionee’s proposed Option Purchase Prices (the “Average Option Purchase Price”) and Optionee shall deliver such amount at closing, provided, the difference between the Average Option Purchase Price and Optionor’s proposed Option Purchase Price shall be held in Escrow by the Escrow Holder until a final determination of the Option Purchase Price is determined by the arbitrators. If the Ruling results in Optionee’s Proposed Purchase Price being the Option Purchase Price, the amount held in escrow, including any interest earned thereon, shall be returned to Optionee, and Optionor shall, within ten (10) business days following receipt of the Ruling, reimburse Optionee for the difference between the Average Option Price and Optionee’s Option Purchase Price. If, on the other hand, the Ruling results in Optionor’s Proposed Purchase Price being the Option Purchase Price, the amount held in escrow, including any interest earned thereon, shall be disbursed to Optionor.

               2.3   Fair Market Value. The “Fair Market Value” of the Option Property shall be the amount that an Unaffiliated Third Party bona-fide buyer would pay to purchase, and a bona-fide seller would accept to sell, the Option Property based on the following assumptions: (i) the determination of the Fair Market Value of the Option Property shall be made as of the applicable Option Purchase Date; (ii) the sales transaction is between arms length unrelated parties, independently negotiating and represented; (iii) that if the Option Property is only Phase I, all leasable space in the Option Property is 100% leased, and if the Option Property is Phase I and Phase II, Phase I will be deemed to be 100% leased and the actual vacancy of Building 3 will be considered; (iv) that no space in the Option Property leased by Optionee is subleased; (v) that there shall be deductions for outstanding tenant improvement allowances or

     
  -9- ELECTRONIC ARTS
[ROFO/Option Agreement]


 

leasing commissions, and Optionor shall pay such costs under the Purchase Agreement; (vi) that there is a 50-50 probability (and corresponding value) that all existing leases in the Option Property, including the Lease, shall be renewed for a term of five (5) years at the end of the then term of such leases, notwithstanding their actual terms; (vii) that Optionee is a “credit tenant” with a rating under Moody’s Rating Guidelines of Ba1; (viii) that credit should be given for any tenant lease that is executed and delivered before the Option Purchase Date; (ix) the fact that Optionee is an “owner occupier” will specifically not be taken into account, and (x) the physical condition and location of the Option Property and the actual terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement shall all be taken into account.

               2.4   Term of Options. The terms of the First Purchase Option and Second Purchase Option shall commence upon the full, unconditional execution and delivery of the Lease and shall terminate upon any of the following.

                  2.4.1   The termination of the Lease for any reason.

                  2.4.2   The sale of the Option Property to Unaffiliated Third Party(s), subject to the terms hereof.

                  2.4.3   With respect to the First Purchase Option, Optionee’s failure to or election not to exercise such First Purchase Option, in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.2.1 above.

                  2.4.4   With respect to the Second Purchase Option, Optionee’s failure to (or election not to) exercise such Second Purchase Option in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.2.1 above.

               2.5   Quitclaim by Optionee. Upon the termination of a Purchase Option pursuant to Section 2.4 above, Optionee shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Optionor, within five (5) business days following request therefor from Optionor, a standard and customary quitclaim deed relinquishing all rights of Optionee to purchase the Option Property under the applicable terminated Purchase Option.

  3.   Limitation on Rights.

               3.1   Rights Personal. The Right of First Offer, First Purchase Option and Second Purchase Option granted herein are personal to Optionee and any “Optionee Affiliate” (as defined below) and may be exercised only by Optionee or Optionee’s Affiliate and may not be exercised by any other assignee or transferee of any of Optionee’s interest herein or in the Lease. For purposes herein, an “Optionee Affiliate” shall mean any of the following: (a) an entity which is controlled by, controls or is under common control with Optionee (an “Optionee Affiliated Entity”) or an Optionee Affiliated Entity ; (b) an entity which merges with or acquires or is acquired by Optionee or a parent or an Optionee Affiliated Entity, or a subsidiary of Optionee’s parent or an Optionee Affiliated Entity, (c) a transferee of all or substantially all of the assets of Optionee or an Optionee Affiliated Entity or an entity which is controlled by, controls or is under common control with Optionee, or an Optionee Affiliated Entity, or (d) a transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, in connection with the merger, consolidation or other reorganization of Optionee or an Optionee Affiliated Entity or of an entity which is controlled by, controls or is under common control with Optionee an Optionee Affiliated Entity, along with

     
  -10- ELECTRONIC ARTS
[ROFO/Option Agreement]

 


 

any other entity which will qualify as an “affiliate” under California General Corporations Code Sections 150 and 5031.

     3.2   No Double Escrow. In the event Optionee exercises any right to acquire the Project or any permitted portion thereof, as provided under this Option Agreement, Optionee shall only take title to the Project, or the applicable permitted portion thereof, in Optionee’s or an Optionee Affiliate’s name and shall not concurrently with the closing of the applicable purchase transaction, or within one (1) year following the Closing, directly or indirectly transfer all or a portion of the ownership interest in the Project or the applicable permitted portion thereof, directly or indirectly to any party other than an Optionee Affiliate, and Optionee shall not acquire all or any permitted portion of the Project pursuant to a First Offer Right or Purchase Option, and, at the time of acquisition, have the intent to transfer the Project, either directly or indirectly, to any party other than an Optionee Affiliate. Optionor shall be entitled to seek damages resulting from a breach of the foregoing covenant. Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing to the contrary, the provisions of this Section 3.2 shall not apply to a (i) transfer by Optionee to an Optionee Affiliate, or vice versa, or (ii) to a transfer with respect to a “synthetic lease” or other similar financing transaction where the transfer of real estate is made solely in trust for financial reporting purposes and control of the ownership of the Project is not directly or indirectly transferred, or (iii) any loan, lien or mortgage placed on the Project.

     3.3   No GAAP Loss on Purchase Options.

                  3.3.1   GAAP Loss. Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement, in no event shall Optionor be required to sell the Option Property to Optionee pursuant to a Purchase Option if such transaction will result in a “GAAP Loss” (as defined below) to Optionor. In the event that the Option Purchase Price would cause Optionor to have a GAAP Loss, Optionor shall have the right, in Optionor’s sole discretion, to terminate the applicable Purchase Option. A “GAAP Loss” shall mean that the net proceeds (after payment of all closing costs and other expenses) that would be received by Optionor from a sale of the Option Property to Optionee for the Option Purchase Price are less than the historical cost basis of Optionor in the Option Property, as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, provided that “historical cost” will include depreciation/amortization taken up to the date of the sale (such historical cost basis to be known as the “GAAP Basis”). In the event the Option Property is Phase I only, the determination of GAAP Loss will take into consideration an equitable allocation of acquisition and operational costs and expenses between Phase I and Phase II (the “Phase I/Phase II Allocation”). Optionor agrees that not later than December 31, 2004, Optionor shall deliver to Optionee, Optionor’s preliminary GAAP Basis analysis, as of a date no earlier than July 31, 2003, together with reasonable supporting evidence with respect thereto (the “Preliminary GAAP Notice”). Optionee shall then have a period of one hundred eighty (180) days following receipt of the Preliminary GAAP Notice, upon not less than fifteen (15) business days prior written notice, to commence an audit of Optionor’s books and records for the Project conducted by an independent certified accountant licensed in the State California, selected by Optionee, and that shall meet the same qualification required of the arbitrators in Section 3.3.2 below, for the purpose of verifying the calculation of the GAAP Basis set forth in Optionor’s Preliminary GAAP Notice. Optionor shall make available to the auditor, in a location in Los Angeles County, California, within fifteen (15) business days following selection of the auditor, all books and records of Optionor for the Project which are reasonably necessary for purposes of performing such audit, as reasonably determined by the auditor. The preceding audit shall be a one-time right, and Optionor shall not be required to

     
  -11- ELECTRONIC ARTS
[ROFO/Option Agreement]

 


 

provide any further GAAP Basis notice calculation to Optionee thereafter, unless and until Optionee delivers Optionee’s Price Proposal as hereinafter set forth. The cost of Optionee’s audit with respect to Optionor’s Preliminary GAAP Notice shall be borne solely by Optionee. Further, if at the time Optionee delivers Optionee’s Price Proposal, or at the time Optionor delivers Optionor’s Price Proposal, Optionor believes that a GAAP Loss will result based on one of the price proposals, Optionor shall notify Optionee in Optionor’s Price Proposal that Optionee’s or Optionor’s Price Proposal will result in a GAAP Loss, and provide reasonable supporting evidence with respect thereto (the “Final GAAP Loss Calculation”), in which event unless Optionee elects within ten (10) business days following receipt of Optionor’s Price Proposal to accept the greater of the Fair Market Value of the Option Property as determined under Section 2, above, or the “GAAP Loss Number” (defined below), and exercise the applicable Purchase Option pursuant to Section 2.2.1.5(i) above, the applicable Purchase Option shall be of no further force and effect, provided Optionee shall have the right to notify Optionor in writing (“Optionee’s GAAP Dispute Notice”), within ten (10) business days following receipt of Optionor’s Price Proposal claiming a GAAP Loss, that Optionee disputes Optionor’s determination and/or supporting evidence, including any Phase I/Phase II Allocation and provide to Optionor, Optionee’s determination of the Final GAAP Loss Calculation. In such event, Optionor and Optionee shall meet and confer in good faith within and during a period not to exceed ten (10) business days following receipt by Optionor of Optionee’s GAAP Dispute Notice in an attempt to resolve any such dispute (the “Dispute Resolution Period”).

               3.3.2 Resolution of Dispute. If such dispute cannot be resolved within the Dispute Resolution Period, the matter shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance with the following terms.

                    3.3.2.1 Optionor and Optionee shall each appoint one arbitrator who shall be a certified public accountant from a nationally recognized accounting firm and who shall have recognized experience of not less than ten (10) years in financial analysis and real estate accounting principals with respect to real estate construction and development for major first class office projects of the nature of the Project. The determination of the arbitrators shall be limited solely to the issues of (i) whether or not a GAAP Loss exists, taking into consideration, if applicable, any Phase I/Phase II Allocation and all of other factors of this Section 3.3, and (ii) if a GAAP Loss exists, the amount necessary to be paid as the purchase price for the Option Property to avoid a GAAP Loss (the “GAAP Loss Number).” Each such arbitrator shall be appointed within five (5) business days after the expiration of the Dispute Resolution Period.

               3.3.3 The two arbitrators so appointed shall within ten (10) days of the date of the appointment of the last appointed arbitrator agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator who shall have the same qualification as set forth in Section 3.3.1 above.

               3.3.4 Within five (5) business days following the appointment of the last arbitrator, Optionor and Optionee shall each submit to the arbitrators their respective determinations as to whether a GAAP Loss exists, and if applicable, their respective estimations of the GAAP Loss Number.

               3.3.5 The three arbitrators shall within thirty (30) days of the appointment of the third arbitrator, reach a decision and publish their ruling as to whether or not a GAAP Loss exists, and if so, whether Optionor’s estimated GAAP Loss Number or Optionee’s

     
    ELECTRONIC ARTS
  -12- [ROFO/Option Agreement]

 


 

GAAP Loss Number is closest to the actual GAAP Loss Number as determined by the Arbitrators. The closest GAAP Loss Number to the actual GAAP Loss Number as determined by the Arbitrators shall then be the GAAP Loss Number for all purposes herein.

               3.3.6 The decision of the majority of the three arbitrators shall be binding upon Optionor and Optionee.

               3.3.7 If either Optionor or Optionee fails to appoint an arbitrator within five (5) business days after the expiration of the Dispute Resolution Period, the arbitrator appointed by one of them shall reach a decision, notify Optionor and Optionee thereof, and such arbitrator’s decision shall be binding upon Optionor and Optionee.

               3.3.8 If the two arbitrators fail to agree upon and appoint a third arbitrator, or both parties fail to appoint an arbitrator, then the appointment of the third arbitrator or any arbitrator shall be dismissed and the parties shall submit a request to the American Arbitration Association to provide a list of five (5) qualified arbitrators. Beginning with the arbitrator appointed by Playa, or Playa, if no arbitrator has been appointed, each arbitrator or each party, as applicable, shall, within three (3) business days, strike the name of one (1) of the five (5) arbitrators on such list, and the arbitrator remaining after each arbitrator or party, as applicable, has stricken two (2) names shall be the third arbitrator.]

               3.3.9 The cost of the third arbitrator shall be paid by Optionor to Optionee equally.

          After the arbitrators have determined if a GAAP Loss exists, the parties shall proceed in accordance with the provisions of Sections 2.2.1.3 through 2.2.1.5 and Section 2.2.2 above to determine the Fair Market Value of the Option Property. Thereafter, if Optionee has elected to accept the greater of (i) Fair Market Value of the Option Property as determined under Section 2, above or (ii) the GAAP Loss Number as determined by Section 3.3, above, pursuant to Section 3.3.1 above, Optionee shall pay the greater of (i) Fair Market Value of the Option Property as determined under Section 2, above or (ii) the GAAP Loss Number as determined by Section 3.3 above. If the arbitrators’ decision has not been delivered prior to the scheduled Closing Date for the applicable Purchase Option, the Closing, if it is to occur, based on the arbitrators’ decision shall be delayed until the date which is ten (10) days following delivery of the arbitrators’ decision.

     4.     Notices/Delivery. All notices or other communications required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and shall be personally delivered (including by means of professional messenger service) by nationally recognized overnight courier service, messenger service or registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested. All written communications in accordance with the foregoing shall be deemed given (i) three (3) days after the date it is posted if sent by mail, or (ii) the date the overnight courier or personal delivery is made, or refused by the addressee, at the address set forth below, if delivered by 5:00 P.M., Los Angeles Time on a business day, the next business day if delivered after 5:00 P.M. of a business day or non-business day.

Notwithstanding any assignment permitted hereunder, Optionee shall not be relieved of any of Optionee’s obligations hereunder unless such assignee assumes all of Optionee’s obligations hereunder.

     10.     Attorneys’ Fees, Costs. If either party (a) files any action or brings any proceeding against the other arising out of this Option Agreement, or (b) is made a party to any action or proceeding brought by the Escrow Holder, whether or not such action or proceeding is prosecuted to judgment (“Action”), then as between Optionor and Optionee (1) the unsuccessful party therein shall pay all costs incurred by the prevailing party therein, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, court costs and reimbursements for any other expenses incurred in connection therewith, and (2) as a separate right, severable from any other rights set forth in this Option Agreement, the prevailing party therein shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in enforcing any judgment against the unsuccessful party therein, which right to recover post-judgment attorneys’ fees and costs shall be included in any such judgment.

     14.     Memorandum. Concurrently with the execution hereof, Optionor and Optionee shall execute and acknowledge a memorandum of this Option Agreement in the form attached to the Lease as Exhibit J (the “Memorandum”). Within five (5) business days following the date of the full execution and delivery of this Option Agreement and the Lease, Optionor shall cause the Memorandum to be recorded (at the sole cost and expense of Optionee) in the Official Records of Los Angeles County, California.

     15.     Subordination/Recognition Agreement. Subject to Optionee’s receipt of an appropriate non-disturbance agreement (which non-disturbance shall not recognize this Option Agreement as surviving a Foreclosure Event) as set forth below, this Option Agreement shall be subject and subordinate to the lien of any mortgages or trust deeds, now or hereafter in force against the Project, in favor of any Unaffiliated Third Party, if any, and/or renewals, extensions, modifications, consolidations and replacements thereof, and to all advances made or hereafter to be made upon the security of such mortgages or trust deeds, provided that the loan evidenced by

     
    ELECTRONIC ARTS
  -17- [ROFO/Option Agreement]

 


 

the mortgage or trust deed is only made with respect to and is only secured by a trust deed on the Project. Optionee, shall within fifteen (15) business days following receipt of the request of Optionor, execute a commercially reasonable subordination agreement relating to the rights of Optionor under this Option Agreement, in favor of any mortgage holders or lienholders of Optionor who are Unaffiliated Third Parties (“Permitted Mortgage/Lien Holders”) who later come into existence at any time prior to the expiration of earlier termination of this Option Agreement, provided that the loan evidenced by the mortgage or trust deed is only made with respect to and is only secured by a trust deed on the Project, and provided, further, that such subordination agreement is in accordance with the provisions of this Section 15. Optionor acknowledges and agrees that Optionee’s receipt of a commercially reasonable non-disturbance agreement (“Non-Disturbance Agreement”) in favor of Optionee from any Permitted Mortgage/Lien Holder who later comes into existence at any time prior to the expiration of this Option Agreement shall be in consideration of, and a condition precedent to, Optionee’s agreement to be bound by the provisions of this Section 15 and any other provisions hereunder for the benefit of a Foreclosure Owner. Optionor agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the agreement of any Permitted Mortgage/Lien Holders to provide notice to Optionee of any monetary default by Optionor and to permit Optionee to make payments directly to any such Permitted Mortgage/Lien Holder, in the event of Optionor’s failure to make required payments, and provided Optionee shall first notify Optionor prior to making any such payment and provide Optionor with not less than the greater of (i) ten (10) business days following Optionor’s receipt of Optionee’s notice, and (ii) the cure period permitted under the applicable mortgage or lien to cure such default.

16.     Estoppel. Within ten (10) business days following a request in writing by Optionor, Optionee shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Optionor an estoppel certificate indicating therein to what extent Optionee’s Right of First Offer or either Purchase Option may exist at that time or that any or all of such rights have been waived or terminated, as applicable, and shall also contain any other information reasonably requested by Optionor or any mortgagee or transferee of Optionor’s interest in the Project. Any such certificate may be relied upon by any prospective mortgagee or transferee of all or any portion of the Project. Optionee shall execute and deliver whatever other commercially reasonable instruments may be reasonably required for such purposes. Failure of Optionee to execute, acknowledge and deliver such estoppel certificate or other instruments within five (5) business days after Optionor’s second request (which shall in no event be deemed delivered prior to the expiration of the initial 10 business day period) shall constitute an acknowledgment by Optionee that statements included in the estoppel certificate are true and correct, without exception.

     17.     Reciprocal Parking Agreement/Lot Line Adjustment. In the event that either (i) Optionee exercises the Right of First Offer or either the First Purchase Option or Second Purchase Option with respect to Phase I of the Project only, in accordance with the terms of this Option Agreement, or (ii) Optionor sells Phase II of the Project, as and when permitted under this Option Agreement, separately from Phase I, to any party other than Optionee, Optionor shall, at its election, either (A) obtain and record a lot line adjustment such that the legal parcel comprising Phase I of the Project, as it currently exists of the date of this Option Agreement, (i.e., exclusive of the Field) will be adjusted to cause the portion of the Real Property on which the Field is located to be included (as a fee interest or air rights parcel) as part of the Real Property comprising Phase I of the Project (the “Lot Line Adjustment”), or (B) alternatively, in the event of the purchase of Phase I by Optionee, enter into with Optionee, or in the event of a

sale of Phase II separately to a third party, cause to be recorded, an exclusive easement, for the benefit of the owner of Phase I, for the use of the Field (the “Field Easement”). The Field Easement shall be in a commercially reasonable form acceptable to both Optionor and Optionee and shall require, at a minimum, that Optionee shall have exclusive use of the Field, and shall maintain, and assume all costs, including an equitable portion of real estate taxes and assessments, for maintenance of, the Field, and that Optionee shall indemnify Optionor or any other owner of Phase II, from all liability resulting from Optionee’s exercise of the rights under the easement and/or its use of the Field. Further, if Building 3 and its related improvements on Phase II have not been completed, the Field Easement shall recognize the fact that Optionee or any other owner of Phase I will not have the use of the Field during the construction of Building 3 and its related improvements, for the period of time, and subject to the terms and conditions with respect thereto, as set forth in the Lease. In addition, in the event of the purchase of Phase I by Optionee, Optionee and Optionor shall enter into, or in the event of a sale of Phase II separately to a third party, Optionor shall cause to be recorded, a reciprocal parking easement for parking in the parking facilities located beneath the Field, and ingress and egress with respect thereto (the “Parking Easement”), which easement shall provide for the number of parking spaces to be allocated to the owner of Phase I and the number of parking spaces to be allocated to the owner of Phase II as required under the Lease and shall be in a commercially reasonable form acceptable to both Optionor and Optionee. Optionor and Optionee agree that, (i) in the event of a purchase of Phase I by Optionee, pursuant to a Purchase Option, during the period between delivery of Optionee’s Interest Notice and delivery of Optionee’s Price Proposal, and (ii) in the event of a purchase of Phase I by Optionee pursuant to a Right of First Offer, prior to the Contingency Date set forth in the Purchase Agreement, Optionor and Optionee shall meet in good faith and mutually agree upon the terms and conditions of the Lot Line Adjustment or Field Easement, as elected by Optionor, and the Parking Easement. Further, upon a sale of Phase II separately, Optionor and Optionee and any other necessary third party(ies) shall meet and in good faith negotiate the terms of the required Lot Line Adjustment or Field Easement and Parking Easement in the time required pursuant to the applicable transaction. In such event, Optionee shall not have the right to object to or prevent the recordation of any of the Lot Line Adjustment, Field Easement or Parking Easement because of matters set forth in any of the Lot Line Adjustment, Field Easement or Parking Easement, so long as Optionee’s rights with respect to the Field and reciprocal parking as hereinabove specified are not materially altered.

     18.     Counterparts. This Option Agreement may be executed in several original counterparts, each of which and all together will constitute this Option Agreement in its entirety.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Option Agreement as of the date first above written.

If such damage or destruction is “material”, Buyer shall have the option to terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the Seller given not later than ten (10) business days after receipt of Seller’s notice. For purposes hereof, “material” shall be deemed to be any insured damage or destruction that shall take more than one hundred eighty (180) days to repair, in Buyer’s good faith judgment. If this Agreement is so terminated, the provisions of Section 6 shall govern. If Buyer does not exercise this option to terminate this Agreement, neither party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement and Seller shall assign and turn over, and Buyer shall be entitled to receive and keep, all insurance proceeds payable to it with respect to such destruction (which shall then be repaired or not at Buyer’s option and cost), including any rent loss insurance applicable to periods after the Close of Escrow, plus the

If Buyer does not elect to terminate this Agreement by reason of any casualty, Buyer shall have the right to participate in any adjustment of the insurance claim.

RIGHTS AND REMEDIES

     15.     Legal and Equitable Enforcement of this Agreement.

          15.1 Default by Seller. If the Close of Escrow and the consummation of the transactions herein contemplated do not occur by reason of any default by Seller, Buyer shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement and the return of the Deposit (including all interest accrued thereon) and to pursue any other remedy available to it at law or in equity, including the specific performance of this Agreement, provided, however, as a condition precedent to Buyer’s right under this Section 14.1 to obtain specific performance by Seller and to commence an action therefor and to record a notice of lis pendens or other notice or filing in the county records, Buyer shall have performed, or be in a position, ready, willing and able, to the extent required by law, to fully perform, all of its obligations under this Agreement, including, without limitation, delivery to Escrow Holder of the balance of the Purchase Price (as adjusted) pursuant to Section 8 hereof.

          15.2 DEFAULT BY BUYER. IF THE CLOSING AND THE CONSUMMATION OF THE TRANSACTION HEREIN CONTEMPLATED DOES NOT OCCUR ON OR BEFORE THE CLOSING DATE AS HEREIN PROVIDED BY REASON OF A MATERIAL UNCURED DEFAULT OF BUYER, BUYER AND SELLER AGREE THAT IT WOULD BE IMPRACTICAL AND EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO ESTIMATE THE DAMAGES WHICH SELLER MAY SUFFER. THEREFORE, BUYER AND SELLER HEREBY AGREE THAT A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF THE TOTAL NET DETRIMENT THAT SELLER WOULD SUFFER IN THE EVENT THAT BUYER DEFAULTS AND FAILS TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE OF THE PROPERTY IS AND SHALL BE, AS SELLER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY (WHETHER AT LAW OR IN EQUITY), AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE DEPOSIT AND ALL INTEREST THEREON. SUBJECT TO THE FINAL TWO SENTENCES OF THIS SECTION 15.2, SAID AMOUNT SHALL BE THE FULL, AGREED AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR THE BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT BY BUYER, ALL OTHER CLAIMS TO DAMAGES OR OTHER REMEDIES BEING HEREIN EXPRESSLY WAIVED BY SELLER. THE PAYMENT OF SUCH AMOUNT AS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES IS NOT INTENDED AS A FORFEITURE OR PENALTY WITHIN THE MEANING OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTIONS 3275 OR 3369, BUT IS INTENDED TO CONSTITUTE LIQUIDATED DAMAGES TO SELLER PURSUANT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTIONS 1671, 1676 AND 1677. BUYER AND

SELLER HEREBY WAIVE THE PROVISIONS OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 3389. UPON DEFAULT BY BUYER, THIS AGREEMENT SHALL TERMINATE AND NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE ANY FURTHER RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, EACH TO THE OTHER, EXCEPT FOR THE RIGHT OF SELLER TO COLLECT SUCH LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FROM BUYER AND/OR ESCROW HOLDER. FURTHERMORE, THE OPTION AGREEMENT SHALL IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE AND BE OF NO FURTHER FORCE OR EFFECT EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO THE OBLIGATION OF BUYER TO EXECUTE A QUITCLAIM DEED AS SET FORTH THEREIN. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 15.2 SHALL NOT LIMIT BUYER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 16.2 BELOW OR SELLER’S RIGHTS UNDER SECTION 16.8 BELOW.
