1. PREMISES.

         1.1. Premises. Landlord hereby leases to Tenant the Premises as shown
on Exhibit A attached hereto, but excluding any other portion of the Project.

         1.2. Reserved Rights. Landlord reserves the right to enter the Premises
upon reasonable notice to Tenant (except in case of an emergency) and/or to
undertake the following: inspect the Premises and/or the performance by Tenant
of the terms and conditions hereof. Landlord acknowledges and agrees that any
such activities by Landlord on the Premises shall be subject to any reasonable
security precautions created by Tenant as a result of any classified work
performed by Tenant in the Building on behalf of the United States Government.

         1.3. As-Is . Tenant acknowledges that Tenant has owned and occupied the
Premises for an extensive period of time prior to the Commencement Date of this
Lease and, as such, is familiar with the physical condition thereof. Tenant
recognizes that Landlord would not lease the Premises except on an "as-is" basis
and that Landlord has made no representations of any kind in connection with
improvements or physical conditions on, or bearing on, the use or condition of
the Premises.

2.       TERM. The Term of the Lease shall commence ("Commencement Date") on the
Commencement Date and expire on June 30, 2002. Tenant has determined that the
Premises are acceptable for Tenant's use; and acknowledges that Landlord has
made no representations or warranties in connection with the physical condition
of the Premises or Tenant's use of the same upon which Tenant has relied
directly or indirectly for any purpose.

3.       RENT.

         3.1. Base Rent. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, at such address as
Landlord shall from time to time designate in writing to Tenant for the payment
of Rent, the Base Rent, without notice, demand, offset or deduction, on the
first day of each calendar month. Upon the execution of this Lease, Tenant shall
pay to Landlord the first month's Base Rent. If the Term commences (or ends) on
a date other than the first (or last) day of a month, Tenant shall pay on the
Commencement Date or first day of the last month a pro rata portion of Base
Rent, prorated on a per diem basis with respect to the portion of the month
within the Term. All sums other than Base Rent which Tenant is obligated to pay
under this Lease shall be deemed to be additional rent due hereunder, whether or
not such sums are designated "additional rent." The term "Rent" means the Base
Rent and all additional rent payable hereunder.

         3.2. Late Charge and Interest. The late payment of any Rent will cause
Landlord to incur additional costs, including administration and collection
costs and processing and accounting expenses and increased debt service. If
Landlord has not received any installment of Rent within five (5) days after
such amount is due, Tenant shall pay a late charge of ten percent (10%) of the
delinquent amount, which is agreed to represent a reasonable estimate of the
costs incurred by Landlord. In addition, all such delinquent amounts shall bear
interest from the date such amount was due until paid in full at a rate per
annum ("Applicable Interest Rate") equal to the greater of (a) five percent (5%)
per annum plus the then federal discount rate on advances to member banks in
effect at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on the 25th day of the



                                       1
<PAGE>   6

month preceding the date of this Lease or (b) ten percent (10%); provided, in no
event shall the Applicable Interest Rate exceed the maximum interest rate
permitted by law which may be charged under such circumstances. Landlord and
Tenant recognize that the damage which Landlord shall suffer as a result of
Tenant's failure to pay such amounts is difficult to ascertain and said late
charge and interest are the best estimate of the damage which Landlord shall
suffer in the event of late payment.

         3.3. Net Lease. Tenant acknowledges that the Rent shall be absolutely
net and carefree to the Landlord, except as set forth herein. Landlord shall not
be responsible for any costs, charges, expenses or outlays of any nature or kind
whatsoever arising from or relating to the Premises, except as provided for
herein. Tenant shall pay all such charges, impositions, costs and expenses of
every nature and kind to Landlord's complete exoneration.

4.       UTILITIES. Tenant shall pay all charges for heat, water, gas,
electricity and any other utilities used on the Premises directly to the utility
provider. Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant for interruption in or
curtailment of any utility service, nor shall any such interruption or
curtailment constitute constructive eviction or grounds for rental abatement. In
the event the Premises is not separately metered, Landlord shall have the
option, subject to Landlord's review and the terms of this Lease, to cause the
Premises to be separately metered at Tenant's cost and expense.

5.       TAXES.

         5.1. Real Property Taxes. Tenant shall pay any and all of the Real
Property Taxes for the Premises to the relevant taxing authority on or before
the date due. Tenant shall provide Landlord with written evidence of such
payment of taxes concomitantly with the payment thereof.

         5.2. Definition of Real Property Taxes. "Real Property Taxes" shall be
the sum of the following: all real property taxes, possessory interest taxes,
business or license taxes or fees, service payments in lieu of such taxes or
fees, annual or periodic license or use fees, excises, transit charges, housing
fund assessments, open space charges, childcare fees, school fees or any other
assessments, levies, fees or charges, general and special, ordinary and
extraordinary, unforeseen as well as foreseen (including fees "in-lieu" of any
such tax or assessment) which are assessed, levied, charged, confirmed or
imposed by any public authority upon the Project (or any real property
comprising any portion thereof) or its operations, together with all taxes,
assessments or other fees imposed by any public authority upon or measured by
any Rent or other charges payable hereunder, including any gross income tax or
excise tax levied by the local governmental authority, the federal government or
any other governmental body with respect to receipt of such rental, or upon,
with respect to or by reason of the development, possession, leasing, operation,
management, maintenance, alteration, repair, use or occupancy by Tenant of the
Premises or any portion thereof, or upon this transaction or any document to
which Tenant is a party creating or transferring an interest in the Premises,
together with any tax imposed in substitution, partially or totally, of any tax
previously included within the aforesaid definition or any additional tax the
nature of which was previously included within the aforesaid definition,
together with the costs and expenses (including attorneys fees) of challenging
any of the foregoing or seeking the reduction in or abatement, redemption or
return of any of the foregoing,



                                       2
<PAGE>   7

 but only to the extent of any such reduction,
abatement, redemption or return. Nothing contained in this Lease shall require
Tenant to pay any franchise, corporate, estate or inheritance tax of Landlord,
or any income, profits or revenue tax or charge upon the net income of Landlord.

         5.3. Personal Property Taxes. Prior to delinquency, Tenant shall pay
all taxes and assessments levied upon trade fixtures, alterations, additions,
improvements, inventories and other personal property located and/or installed
on the Property by Tenant; and Tenant shall provide Landlord copies of receipts
for payment of all such taxes and assessments. To the extent any such taxes are
not separately assessed or billed to Tenant, Tenant shall pay the amount thereof
as invoiced by Landlord.

6.       INSURANCE.

         6.1. Landlord. Landlord shall, at Tenant's expense, obtain and keep in
force at all times the following insurance:

Landlord's interest in any betterments and improvements against fire and

required by any synthetic lender of Landlord with an interest in the Building at
the time, together with rental value insurance against loss of Rent in an amount
equal to the amount of Rent for a period of at least twelve (12) months
commencing on the date of loss. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of
such insurance for such period of time that is consistent with the Term of this
Lease within ten (10) business days of receipt of request therefor, provided
such request is accompanied by related invoices therefor.

         6.2. Tenant. Tenant shall, at Tenant's expense, obtain and keep in

restoration of the aggregate limit;

              6.2.2. Automobile Liability Insurance. Comprehensive automobile

              6.2.3. Workers' Compensation and Employer's Liability Insurance.
Workers' compensation insurance having limits not less than those required by

                                       3
<PAGE>   8

              6.2.4. Property Insurance. "All risk" property insurance including
boiler and machinery comprehensive form, if applicable, covering damage to or

thereof including business interruption of Tenant) ("Tenant's Property").

         6.3. General.

              6.3.1. Insurance Companies. Insurance required to be maintained by
Tenant shall be written by companies licensed to do business in the state in
which the Premises are located and having a "General Policyholders Rating" of at
least A (or such higher rating as may be required by a lender having a lien on
the Premises) as set forth in the most current issue of "Best's Insurance
Guide."

              6.3.2. Certificates of Insurance. Tenant shall deliver to Landlord
certificates of insurance for all insurance required to be maintained by Tenant
prior to the date of possession of the Premises. Tenant shall, at least ten (10)
days prior to expiration of the policy, furnish Landlord with certificates of
renewal or "binders" thereof. Each certificate shall expressly provide that such
policies shall not be cancelable or otherwise subject to modification except
after sixty (60) days prior written notice to the parties named as additional
insureds in this Lease (except in the case of cancellation for nonpayment of
premium in which case cancellation shall not take effect until at least (10)
days' notice has been given to Landlord). If Tenant fails to maintain any
insurance required in this Lease, Tenant shall be liable for all losses and cost
resulting from said failure.

              6.3.3. Additional Insureds. Landlord and any property management
company of Landlord for the Premises shall be included as additional insureds,
to the extent that the Tenant has an obligation under Section 6.4, under all of
the policies required by Section 6.2.1. The policies required under Section
6.2.1 shall provide for severability of interest.

              6.3.4. Primary Coverage. All insurance to be maintained by Tenant
shall, except for workers' compensation and employer's liability insurance, be
primary, without right of contribution from insurance of Landlord. The limits of
insurance maintained by Tenant shall not limit Tenant's liability under this
Lease.

              6.3.5. Waiver of Subrogation. Landlord and Tenant each waives any
right to recover against the other for claims for damages to its property
covered by insurance. This provision is intended to waive fully, and for the
benefit of Landlord and Tenant, any rights and/or claims which might give rise
to a right of subrogation in favor of any insurance carrier.

         6.4. Indemnity. Tenant shall indemnify, defend by counsel satisfactory
to Landlord, and hold harmless Landlord from and against any and all claims
arising from (i) Tenant's use of the Premises, the conduct of Tenant's business
or any activity, work or things done, permitted or suffered by Tenant in or
about the Premises, the Building or elsewhere and (ii) any breach or default in
the performance of any obligation on Tenant's part to be performed under the
terms of



                                       4
<PAGE>   9

this Lease, arising from any negligence of Tenant or any of Tenant's agents,
contractors or employees, including all costs, attorneys' fees, expenses and
liabilities incurred in the defense of any such claim or any action or
proceeding brought thereon. Tenant, as a material part of the consideration to
Landlord, hereby assumes all risk of damage to property or injury to persons in,
upon or about the Premises or the Building arising from any cause; and Tenant
hereby waives all claims in respect thereof against Landlord except to the
extent such claims are caused by Landlord's gross negligence or willful
misconduct.

         6.5. Exemption of Landlord from Liability. Tenant hereby agrees that
Landlord shall not be liable for injury to Tenant's business or any loss of
income therefrom or for damage to the property of Tenant, Tenant's employees,
invitees, customers or any other person in or about the Premises or the
Building, nor shall Landlord be liable for injury to the person of Tenant,
Tenant's employees, agents or contractors, whether such damage or injury is
caused by fire, steam, electricity, gas, water or rain, or from the breakage,
leakage or other defects of sprinklers, wires, appliances, plumbing, air
conditioning or lighting fixtures, or from any other cause, whether said damage
or injury results from conditions arising upon the Premises, the Building or
from other sources or places, and regardless of whether the cause of such damage
or injury or the means of repairing the same is inaccessible to Tenant. Landlord
shall not be liable for any damages arising from any act or neglect of any other
tenant, if any, of the Building.

7.       REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE.

         7.1. Tenant. Tenant shall keep and maintain any and all portions of the
Premises and the Building, including structural portions thereof, floors and
floor coverings, interior plumbing, HVAC and other building system equipment,
electrical wiring, fixtures and equipment in good repair and in a clean and safe
condition, and repair and/or replace any and all of the foregoing in a good and
workmanlike manner. Without limiting the foregoing, Tenant shall, at Tenant's
sole expense, (a) immediately replace all broken glass in the Premises with
glass equal to or in excess of the specification and quality of the original
glass; and (b) repair any area damaged by Tenant, Tenant's agents, employees,
invitees and visitors, including any damage caused by any roof penetration,
whether or not such roof penetration was approved by Landlord.

         7.2. Landlord. Landlord shall have no obligation whatsoever to maintain
any portion of the Building or Premises. Tenant waives any right to repair at
the expense of Landlord under any applicable governmental laws, ordinances,
statutes, orders or regulations now or hereafter in effect respecting the
Premises.

8.       ALTERATIONS.

         8.1. Trade Fixtures; Alterations. Tenant may install necessary trade
fixtures, equipment and furniture in the Building, provided that such items are
installed and are removable without structural damage to the Building. Tenant
shall not make, or allow to be made, any alterations or physical additions in,
about or to the Premises that affect the structural aspects of the Building, the
Building roof or Building foundation without obtaining the prior written consent
of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Tenant shall
reimburse Landlord for all costs which Landlord may incur in connection with
granting approval to Tenant for any such alterations and additions, including
any costs or expenses which Landlord may



                                       5

incur in electing to have outside architects and engineers review said matters.
If a Notice of Completion is required for such work, Tenant shall file it and
provide Landlord with a copy. Tenant shall provide Landlord with a set of
"as-built" drawings for any such work.

         8.2. Damage; Removal. Tenant assumes the risk of damage to any of
Tenant's fixtures, equipment, furniture or alterations. Tenant shall repair all
damage to the Premises and/or Building caused by the installation or removal of
such items. Upon the termination of this Lease, Tenant shall remove any or all
alterations, additions, improvements and partitions made or installed by Tenant
and restore the Premises to their condition existing prior to the construction
of any such items; provided, however, Landlord may permit, upon written notice
to Tenant (to the extent requested to do so by Tenant at the time notice thereof
is given), any such items designated by Landlord to remain on the Premises, in
which event they shall be and become the property of Landlord upon the
termination of this Lease. All such removals and restoration shall be
accomplished in a good and workmanlike manner and so as not to cause any damage
to the Premises, the Building or the Project whatsoever.

         8.3. Liens. Tenant shall promptly pay and discharge all claims for
labor performed, supplies furnished and services rendered at the request of
Tenant and shall keep the Premises free of all mechanics' and materialmen's
liens in connection therewith. Tenant shall provide at least ten (10) days prior
written notice to Landlord before any labor is performed, supplies furnished or
services rendered on or at the Premises and Landlord shall have the right to
post on the Premises notices of non-responsibility. If any lien is filed,
Landlord may take such action as may be necessary to remove such lien and Tenant
shall pay Landlord such amounts expended by Landlord together with interest
thereon at the Applicable Interest Rate from the date of expenditure.

9.       USE.

              The Premises shall be used only for the Permitted Uses and for no
other uses and otherwise consistent with any applicable governmental laws,
ordinances, statutes, orders and regulations and any declaration of covenants,
conditions and restrictions or any supplement thereto which has been recorded in
any official or public records with respect to the Project or any portion
thereof. Tenant shall comply with all applicable governmental laws, ordinances,
and statutes applicable to the Premises or Building. Tenant shall not commit
waste, overload the floors or structure of the Building, subject the Premises or
the Project to any use which would damage the same or raise or violate any
insurance coverage, permit any unreasonable odors, smoke, dust, gas, substances,
noise or vibrations to emanate from the Premises, take any action which would
constitute a nuisance or would disturb, obstruct or endanger any other tenants,
take any action which would abrogate any warranties, or use or allow the
Premises to be used for any unlawful purpose. Tenant shall not use any parking
spaces for the Project other than the parking spaces located on the Premises.
Landlord shall not be responsible for non-compliance by any other tenant or
occupant with any of the rules or regulations or any other terms or provisions
of such tenant's or occupant's lease. Tenant shall promptly comply with the
reasonable requirements of any board of fire insurance underwriters or other

10.      ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS.

         10.1. Hazardous Materials. Tenant shall not cause, or allow any of
Tenant's employees, agents, customers, visitors, invitees, licensees,
contractors, assignees or subtenants (collectively, "Tenant's Parties") to cause
or permit, any Hazardous Materials to be brought upon, stored, manufactured,
generated, blended, handled, recycled, treated, disposed or used on, under or
about the Premises, the Building or the Project, except for routine office and
janitorial supplies and the Hazardous Materials listed on Schedule 1 hereto in
usual and customary quantities stored, used and disposed of in accordance with
all applicable Environmental Laws. As used herein, "Hazardous Materials" means
any chemical, substance, material, controlled substance, waste or combination
thereof which is hazardous to human health or safety or to the environment due
to its radioactivity, ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, explosivity,
toxicity, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity or other harmful or potentially harmful
properties or effects, including, without limitation, petroleum and petroleum
products, asbestos, radon, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and all of those
chemicals, substances, materials, controlled substances, wastes or combinations
thereof which are listed, defined or regulated in any manner by any
Environmental Law based upon, directly or indirectly, such properties or
effects. As used herein, "Environmental Laws" means any and all federal, state
or local environmental, health and/or safety-related laws, regulations,
standards, ordinances, rules, codes, orders, decrees, directives, guidelines,
permits or permit conditions, currently existing which are applicable to Tenant
or the Premises. Tenant and Tenant's Parties shall comply with all Environmental
Laws and promptly notify Landlord of the presence of any Hazardous Materials,
other than as permitted above, on the Premises or any violation of any
Environmental Law. Landlord shall have the right to inspect the Premises and to
conduct tests and investigations to determine whether Tenant is in compliance
with the foregoing provisions. If such tests indicate the presence of any
environmental condition, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the cost of
conducting such tests. The phrase "environmental condition" shall mean any
condition relating to any Hazardous Materials, including surface water,
groundwater, drinking water supply, land, surface or subsurface strata or the
ambient air and includes air, land and water pollutants, being present at the
Property in violation of Environmental Laws or in a manner which, in the
reasonable opinion of the Landlord's environmental consultant, is substantially
likely to cause health problems for occupants of the Premises or a future
violation of Environmental Law. In the event of any such environmental
condition, Tenant shall promptly take any and all steps necessary to rectify the
same or shall, at Tenant's election, reimburse Landlord, upon demand, for the
cost to Landlord of performing rectifying work. Upon the expiration or earlier
termination of this Lease, Tenant shall remove any and all Hazardous Materials
on, under or about the Premises.

         10.2. Indemnification. Tenant shall indemnify, protect, defend (by
counsel acceptable to Landlord) and hold harmless Landlord and its partners,
directors, officers, employees, shareholders, lenders, agents, contractors and
each of their respective successors and assigns (individually and collectively,
"Indemnities") from and against any and all claims, judgments, causes of action,
damages, penalties, fines, taxes, costs, liabilities, losses and expenses
arising at any time during or after the Term as a result (directly or
indirectly) of or in connection with (a) Tenant and/or Tenant's Parties' breach
of any prohibition or provision of the preceding section, or (b) the presence of
Hazardous Materials on, under or about the Premises or other properties as a
result (directly or indirectly) of Tenant's and/or Tenant's Parties' activities,
or failure to act



                                       7
<PAGE>   12

when legally required to do so in connection with the Premises. This indemnity
shall include the cost of any required or necessary repair, cleanup or
detoxification, and the preparation of any closure or other required plans,
whether such action is required or necessary prior to or following the
termination of this Lease. The written consent by Landlord to the presence of
Hazardous Materials on, under or about the Premises shall not excuse Tenant from
Tenant's obligation of indemnification pursuant hereto. Tenant's obligations
pursuant to the foregoing indemnity shall survive the termination of this Lease.

11.      DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION.

         11.1. Casualty. If the Building should be damaged or destroyed by fire
or other casualty, Tenant shall give immediate written notice to Landlord.
Within thirty (30) days after receipt thereof, Landlord shall notify Tenant
whether such repairs can reasonably be made: (1) within thirty (30) days; (2) in
more than thirty (30) days but in less than ninety (90) days; or (3) in more
than ninety (90) days from the date of such notice.

               11.1.1. Less Than 30 Days. If the Building should be damaged only
to such extent that rebuilding or repairs can be reasonably completed within
thirty (30) days, this Lease shall not terminate and, provided that insurance
proceeds are available to fully repair the damage, Landlord shall repair the
Building, except that Landlord shall not be required to rebuild, repair or
replace any alterations, partitions, fixtures, additions and other improvements
which may have been placed in, on or about the Building by or for the benefit of
Tenant. The Rent payable hereunder shall be abated proportionately from the date
Tenant vacates the Building only to the extent rental abatement insurance
proceeds are received by Landlord and the Building are unfit for occupancy.

               11.1.2. Greater Than 30 Days. If the Building should be damaged
only to such extent that rebuilding or repairs can be reasonably completed in
more than thirty (30) days but in less than ninety (90) days, then Landlord
shall have the option of: (1) terminating the Lease effective upon the
occurrence of such damage, in which event the Rent shall be abated from the date
Tenant vacates the Building; or (2) electing to repair the Building, provided
insurance proceeds are available to fully repair the damage (except that
Landlord shall not be required to rebuild, repair or replace any part of the
alterations, partitions, fixtures, additions and other improvements which may
have been placed in, on or about the Building by or for the benefit of Tenant).
The Rent payable hereunder shall be abated proportionately from the date Tenant
vacates the Building only to the extent rental abatement insurance proceeds are
received by Landlord and the Building is unfit for occupancy.

               11.1.3. Greater Than 90 Days. If the Building should be so
damaged that rebuilding or repairs cannot be completed within ninety (90) days,
either Landlord or Tenant may terminate by giving written notice within ten (10)
days after notice from Landlord regarding the time period of repair; and this
Lease and the Rent shall be abated from the date Tenant vacates the Building. In
the event that neither party elects to terminate this Lease, Landlord shall
promptly commence and diligently prosecute to completion the repairs to the
Building , provided insurance proceeds are available to fully repair the damage
(except that Landlord shall not be required to rebuild, repair or replace any
alterations, partitions, fixtures, additions and other improvements which may
have been placed in, on or about the Building by or for the benefit of



                                       8
<PAGE>   13

Tenant). During the time when Landlord is prosecuting such repairs to
completion, the Rent payable hereunder shall be abated proportionately from the
date Tenant vacates the Building only to the extent rental abatement insurance
proceeds are received by Landlord and only during the period that the Building
is unfit for occupancy.

         11.2. Tenant's Fault. If any portion of the Building is damaged
resulting from the fault, negligence or breach of this Lease by Tenant or any of
Tenant's Parties, Rent shall not be diminished during the repair of such damage
and Tenant shall be liable to Landlord for the cost of the repair caused thereby
to the extent such cost is not covered by insurance proceeds.

         11.3. Uninsured Casualty. In the event that any portion of the Building
is damaged and is not fully covered by insurance proceeds received by Landlord
or in the event that the holder of any indebtedness secured by the Premises
requires that the insurance proceeds be applied to such indebtedness, then
Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by delivering written notice
of termination to Landlord within thirty (30) days after the date of notice to
Tenant of any such event. In the event that Tenant does not elect to terminate
this Lease, Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease by delivering
written notice to Tenant within thirty (30) days after such election by Tenant
or Tenant's failure to elect, as applicable, whereupon all rights and
obligations shall cease and terminate hereunder.

         11.4. Waiver. With respect to any damage or destruction which Landlord
is obligated to repair or may elect to repair, Tenant waives all rights to
terminate this Lease pursuant to rights otherwise presently or hereafter
accorded by law.

12.      EMINENT DOMAIN.

         12.1. Total Condemnation. If all of the Premises is condemned by
eminent domain, inversely condemned or sold in lieu of condemnation for any
public or quasi-public use or purpose ("Condemned"), this Lease shall terminate
as of the date of title vesting in such proceeding and Rent shall be adjusted to
the date of termination.

         12.2. Partial Condemnation. If any portion of the Premises is Condemned
and such partial condemnation renders the Premises unusable for Tenant's
business, or if a substantial portion of the Building is Condemned, this Lease
shall terminate as of the date of title vesting or order of immediate possession
in such proceeding and Rent shall be adjusted to the date of termination. If
such partial condemnation does not render the Premises unusable for the business
of Tenant or less than a substantial portion of the Building is Condemned,
Landlord shall promptly restore the Premises to the extent of any condemnation
proceeds recovered by Landlord, excluding the portion thereof lost in such
condemnation, and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect except that
after the date of such title vesting Rent shall be adjusted, as reasonably
determined by Landlord.

         12.3. Award. If the Premises are wholly or partially Condemned,
Landlord shall be entitled to the entire award paid for such condemnation, and
Tenant waives any claim to any part of the award from Landlord or the condemning
authority; provided that Tenant shall have the right to recover from the
condemning authority such compensation as may be separately awarded



                                       9
<PAGE>   14

to Tenant in connection with costs in removing Tenant's merchandise, furniture,
fixtures, leasehold improvements and equipment to a new location.

         12.4. Temporary Condemnation. In the event of a temporary condemnation,
this Lease shall remain in effect, Tenant shall continue to pay Rent and Tenant
shall receive any award made for such condemnation. If a temporary condemnation
remains in effect at the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Tenant
shall pay Landlord the reasonable cost of performing any obligations required of
Tenant with respect to the surrender of the Premises. If a temporary
condemnation is for a period which extends beyond the Term, this Lease shall
terminate as of the date of occupancy by the condemning authority and any such
award shall be distributed in accordance with the preceding section.

13.      DEFAULT.

         13.1. Events of Defaults. The occurrence of any of the following events
shall, at Landlord's option, constitute an "Event of Default":

               13.1.1. Vacation or abandonment of the Premises for a period of
thirty (30) consecutive days, and Tenant waives any right to notice Tenant may
have under applicable law;

               13.1.2. Failure to pay Rent on the date when due, the failure
continuing for a period of five (5) days after payment is due;

               13.1.3. Failure to perform Tenant's covenants hereunder (except
default in the payment of Rent); provided, if such default is susceptible of
cure and Tenant has promptly commenced the cure of such default and is
diligently prosecuting such cure to completion, then the same must remain
uncured for thirty (30) days after written notice thereof from Landlord;

               13.1.4. The making of a general assignment by Tenant for the
benefit of creditors, the filing of a voluntary petition by Tenant or the filing
of an involuntary petition by any of Tenant's creditors seeking the
rehabilitation, liquidation or reorganization of Tenant under any law relating
to bankruptcy, insolvency or other relief of debtors and, in the case of an
involuntary action, the failure to remove or discharge the same within sixty
(60) days of such filing, the appointment of a receiver or other custodian to
take possession of substantially all of Tenant's assets or this leasehold,
Tenant's insolvency or inability to pay Tenant's debts or failure generally to
pay Tenant's debts when due, any court entering a decree or order directing the
winding up or liquidation of Tenant or of substantially all of Tenant's assets,
Tenant taking any action toward the dissolution or winding up of Tenant's
affairs, the cessation or suspension of Tenant's use of the Premises, or the
attachment, execution or other judicial seizure of substantially all of Tenant's
assets or this leasehold;

               13.1.5. The making of any material misrepresentation or omission
by Tenant in any materials delivered by or on behalf of Tenant to Landlord
pursuant to this Lease; or

               13.1.6. A default by Tenant beyond any applicable notice and cure
period pursuant to the terms of any lease entered into between Landlord and
Tenant for space in the Project.



                                       10
<PAGE>   15

         13.2. Remedies.

               13.2.1. Termination. In the event of the occurrence of any Event
of Default, Landlord shall have the right to give a written termination notice
to Tenant and, on the date specified in such notice, this Lease shall terminate
unless on or before such date all arrears of Rent and all other sums payable by
Tenant under this Lease and all costs and expenses incurred by or on behalf of
Landlord hereunder shall have been paid by Tenant and all other Events of
Default at the time existing shall have been fully remedied to the satisfaction
of Landlord.

                       13.2.1.1. Repossession. Following termination, without
prejudice to other remedies Landlord may have, Landlord may (i) peaceably
re-enter the Premises upon voluntary surrender by Tenant or remove Tenant
therefrom and any other persons occupying the Premises, using such legal
proceedings as may be available; (ii) repossess the Premises or relet the
Premises or any part thereof for such term (which may be for a term extending
beyond the Term), at such rental and upon such other terms and conditions as
Landlord in Landlord's sole discretion shall determine, with the right to make
reasonable alterations and repairs to the Premises; and (iii) remove all
personal property therefrom.

                       13.2.1.2. Unpaid Rent. Landlord shall have all the rights
and remedies of a landlord provided by applicable law, including the right to
recover from Tenant: (a) the worth, at the time of award, of the unpaid Rent
that had been earned at the time of termination, (b) the worth, at the time of
award, of the amount by which the unpaid Rent that would have been earned after
the date of termination until the time of award exceeds the amount of loss of
rent that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided, (c) the worth, at
the time of award, of the amount by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the
Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of the loss of rent that Tenant
proves could have been reasonably avoided, and (d) any other amount, and court
costs, necessary to compensate Landlord for all detriment proximately caused by
Tenant's default. The phrase "worth, at the time of award," as used in (a) and
(b) above, shall be computed at the greater of 10% per annum or 5% per annum
plus the federal discount rate on advances to member banks in effect at the
Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on the 25th day of the month preceding the
date of this Lease, and as used in (c) above, shall be computed by discounting
such amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at
the time of award plus 1%.

               13.2.2. Continuation. Even though an Event of Default may have
occurred, this Lease shall continue in effect for so long as Landlord does not
terminate Tenant's right to possession; and Landlord may enforce all of
Landlord's rights and remedies under this Lease, including the right to recover
Rent as it becomes due, and Landlord, without terminating this Lease, may,
during the period Tenant is in default, enter the Premises and relet the same,
or any portion thereof, to third parties for Tenant's account and Tenant shall
be liable to Landlord for all costs Landlord incurs in reletting the Premises,
including, without limitation, brokers' commissions, expenses of remodeling the
Premises and like costs. Reletting may be for a period shorter or longer than
the remaining Term. Tenant shall continue to pay the Rent on the date the same
is due. No act by Landlord hereunder, including acts of maintenance,
preservation or efforts to lease the Premises or the appointment of a receiver
upon application of Landlord to protect Landlord's interest under this Lease,
shall terminate this Lease unless Landlord notifies Tenant that Landlord elects
to terminate this Lease. In the event that Landlord elects to relet the



                                       11
<PAGE>   16

Premises, the rent that Landlord receives from reletting shall be applied to the
payment of, first, any indebtedness from Tenant to Landlord other than Base Rent
and Additional Rent; second, all costs, including maintenance, incurred by
Landlord in reletting; and, third, Base Rent and Tenant's Share of Increases
under this Lease. After deducting the payments referred to above, any sum
remaining from the rental Landlord receives from reletting shall be held by
Landlord and applied in payment of future Rent as Rent becomes due under this
Lease. In no event shall Tenant be entitled to any excess rent received by
Landlord. If, on the date Rent is due under this Lease, the rent received from
the reletting is less than the Rent due on that date, Tenant shall pay to
Landlord, in addition to the remaining Rent due, all costs, including
maintenance, Landlord incurred in reletting that remain after applying the rent
received from reletting as provided hereinabove. So long as this Lease is not
terminated, Landlord shall have the right to remedy any default of Tenant, to
maintain or improve the Premises, to cause a receiver to be appointed to
administer the Premises and new or existing subleases and to add to the Rent
payable hereunder all of Landlord's reasonable costs in so doing, with interest
at the Applicable Interest Rate from the date of such expenditure.

         13.3. Cumulative. Each right and remedy of Landlord provided for herein
or now or hereafter existing at law, in equity, by statute or otherwise shall be
cumulative and shall not preclude Landlord from exercising any other rights or
remedies provided for in this Lease or now or hereafter existing at law or in
equity, by statute or otherwise. No payment by Tenant of a lesser amount than
the Rent nor any endorsement on any check or letter accompanying any check or
payment as Rent shall be deemed an accord and satisfaction of full payment of
Rent; and Landlord may accept such payment without prejudice to Landlord's right
to recover the balance of such Rent or to pursue other remedies.

14.      ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING. Tenant shall not assign or sublet, whether
voluntarily or involuntarily or by operation of law, the Premises or any part
thereof without Landlord's prior written approval, which shall not be
unreasonably withheld. The merger of Tenant with any other entity or the
transfer of any controlling or managing ownership or beneficial interest in
Tenant shall constitute an assignment hereunder. If Tenant desires to assign
this Lease or sublet any or all of the Building, Tenant shall give Landlord
written notice forty-five (45) days prior to the anticipated effective date of
the assignment or sublease. Landlord shall then have a period of thirty (30)
days following receipt of such notice and all related documents and agreements
associated with the assignment or sublease, including without limitation, the
financial statements of any proposed assignee or subtenant, to notify Tenant in
writing that Landlord elects: (1) to permit Tenant to assign this Lease or
sublet such space, subject however to Landlord's prior written approval of the
proposed assignee or subtenant and of any related documents or agreements
associated with the assignment or sublease received by Landlord hereunder or
reasonably requested by Landlord; (2) to disapprove such proposed assignment or
subletting or (3) to terminate this Lease as of the date specified in Landlord's
notice thereof. If Landlord should fail to notify Tenant in writing of such
election, Landlord shall be deemed to have elected option (2). This Lease may
not be assigned by operation of law. Any purported assignment or subletting
contrary to the provisions hereof shall be void. If Tenant receives rent or
other consideration for any such transfer in excess of the Rent, or in case of
the sublease of a portion of the Premises, in excess of such Rent that is fairly
allocable to such portion, after appropriate adjustments to assure that all
other payments required hereunder are appropriately taken into account, Tenant
shall pay Landlord one hundred percent (100%) of the



                                       12
<PAGE>   17

difference between each such payment of rent or other consideration and the Rent
required hereunder. Landlord may, without waiving any rights or remedies,
collect rent from the assignee, subtenant or occupant and apply the net amount
collected to the Rent herein reserved and apportion any excess rent so collected
in accordance with the terms of the preceding sentence. Tenant shall continue to
be liable as a principal and not as a guarantor or surety to the same extent as
though no assignment or subletting had been made. Landlord may consent to
subsequent assignments or subletting of this Lease or amendments or
modifications to the Lease by assignees of Tenant without notifying Tenant or
any successor of Tenant and without obtaining their consent. No permitted
transfer shall be effective until there has been delivered to Landlord a
counterpart of the transfer instrument in which the transferee agrees to be and
remain jointly and severally liable with Tenant for the payment of Rent
pertaining to the space and for the performance of all the terms and provisions
of this Lease relating thereto arising on or after the date of the transfer.
Tenant shall not do any act which shall in any way encumber the title of
Landlord in and to the Premises, the Building or the Project.

15.      ESTOPPEL, ATTORNMENT AND SUBORDINATION.

         15.1. Estoppel. Within ten (10) days after request by Landlord, Tenant
shall deliver an estoppel certificate duly executed (and acknowledged if
required by any lender), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B, to any
proposed mortgagee, purchaser or Landlord. Tenant's failure to deliver said
statement in such time period shall be conclusive upon Tenant that (a) this
Lease is in full force and effect, without modification except as may be
represented by Landlord; (b) there are no uncured defaults in Landlord's
performance and Tenant has no right of offset, counterclaim or deduction against
Rent hereunder; and (c) no more than one period's Base Rent has been paid in
advance. Landlord reserves the right to substitute a different form of estoppel
certificate upon the request of any proposed mortgagee or purchaser. If any
financier should require that this Lease be amended (other than in the
description of the Premises, the Term, the Permitted Use, the Rent or as will
substantially, materially and adversely affect the rights of Tenant), Landlord
shall give written notice thereof to Tenant, which notice shall be accompanied
by a Lease supplement embodying such amendments. Tenant shall, within ten (10)
days after the receipt of Landlord's notice, execute the tendered Lease
supplement.

         15.2. Attornment. In the event of a foreclosure proceeding, the
exercise of the power of sale under any mortgage or deed of trust or the
termination of a ground lease, Tenant shall, if requested, attorn to the
purchaser thereupon and recognize such purchaser as Landlord under this Lease;
provided, however, Tenant's obligation to attorn to such purchaser shall be
conditioned upon Tenant's receipt of a non-disturbance agreement.

         15.3. Subordination. This Lease shall be subject and subordinate to all
ground leases and the lien of all mortgages and deeds of trust which now or
hereafter affect the Premises or the Project or Landlord's interest therein, or
on or against all such ground leases, and all amendments thereto, all without
the necessity of Tenant's executing further instruments to effect such
subordination. If requested, Tenant shall execute whatever documentation may be
required to further effect the provisions of this paragraph.

16.      MISCELLANEOUS.

         16.1. General.

               16.1.1. Entire Agreement. This Lease sets forth all the
agreements between Landlord and Tenant concerning the Premises; and there are no
agreements either oral or written other than as set forth herein.

               16.1.2. Time of Essence. Time is of the essence of this Lease.

               16.1.3. Attorneys' Fees. In any action which either party brings
to enforce its rights hereunder, the unsuccessful party shall pay all costs
incurred by the prevailing party including reasonable attorneys' fees, to be
fixed by the court, and said costs and attorneys' fees shall be a part of the
judgment in said action.

               16.1.4. Severable. If any provision of this Lease or the
application of any such provision shall be held by a court of competent
jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable to any extent, the remaining
provisions of this Lease and the application thereof shall remain in full force
and effect and shall not be affected, impaired or invalidated.

accordance with the laws of the state in which the Premises are located.

               16.1.6. No Option. Submission of this Lease to Tenant for
examination or negotiation does not constitute an option to lease, offer to
lease or a reservation of, or option for, the Premises; and this document shall
become effective and binding only upon the execution and delivery hereof by
Landlord and Tenant.

               16.1.7. Successors and Assigns. This Lease shall be binding upon
and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of Landlord and, to the

               16.1.10. Agency, Partnership or Joint Venture. Nothing contained

party, as creating the relationship of principal and agent or of partnership or
of joint venture by the parties hereto, it being understood and agreed that no
provision contained in this Lease or any acts of the parties hereto shall be
deemed to create any relationship other than the relationship of landlord and
tenant.

               16.1.11. Merger. The voluntary or other surrender of this Lease
by Tenant or a mutual cancellation thereof or a termination by Landlord shall

existing subtenancies or may, at the option of Landlord, operate as an
assignment to Landlord of any or all of such subtenancies.

         16.2. Signs. All signs and graphics of every kind visible in or from
public view or corridors, or the exterior of the Building or Premises shall be
subject to Landlord's prior written approval and shall be subject to any
applicable governmental laws, ordinances, and regulations and in compliance with
Landlord's signage program. Tenant shall remove all such signs and graphics
prior to the termination of this Lease. Such installations and removals shall be
made in such manner as to avoid injury or defacement of the Premises; and Tenant
shall repair any injury or defacement, including without limitation,
discoloration caused by such installation or removal.

         16.3. Waiver. No waiver of any default or breach hereunder shall be
implied from any omission to take action on account thereof, notwithstanding any
custom and practice or course of dealing, and no waiver shall affect any default
other than the default specified in the waiver and then said waiver shall be
operative only for the time and to the extent therein stated. Waivers of any
covenant shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the
same. No waiver by either party of any provision under this Lease shall be
effective unless in writing and signed by such party.

         16.4. Financial Statements. Tenant shall provide to any lender,
purchaser or Landlord, within ten (10) days after request, a current, accurate,
certified financial statement for Tenant and Tenant's business prepared under
generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied and such other
certified financial information or tax returns as may be reasonably required by
Landlord, purchaser or any lender of either.

         16.5. Limitation of Liability. The obligations of Landlord under this
Lease are not personal obligations of the individual partners, directors,
officers, shareholders, agents or employees of Landlord; and Tenant shall look
solely to the Building for satisfaction of any liability and shall not look to
other assets of Landlord nor seek recourse against the assets of the individual
partners, directors, officers, shareholders, agents or employees of Landlord.
Whenever Landlord transfers its interest, Landlord shall be automatically
released from further performance under this Lease and from all further
liabilities and expenses hereunder and the transferee of Landlord's interest
shall assume all liabilities and obligations of Landlord hereunder from the date
of such transfer.

         16.6. Notices. All notices to be given hereunder shall be in writing
and mailed postage prepaid by certified or registered mail, return receipt
requested, or delivered by personal or courier delivery, or sent by facsimile
(immediately followed by one of the preceding methods), to Landlord's Address
and Tenant's Address, or to such other place as Landlord or Tenant may designate
in a written notice given to the other party. Notices shall be deemed served
upon the earlier of receipt or three (3) days after the date of mailing.

         16.7. Brokerage Commission. Tenant warrants to Landlord that Tenant's
sole contact with Landlord or with the Premises in connection with this
transaction has been directly with Landlord, and that no broker or finder can
properly claim a right to a commission or a finder's fee based upon contacts
between the claimant and Tenant. Tenant and Landlord, respectively, shall each
indemnify, defend by counsel acceptable to the other, protect and hold each
other harmless from and against any loss, cost or expense, including, but not
limited to, attorneys' fees and costs, resulting from any claim for a fee or
commission by any broker or finder in connection with the Premises and this
Lease.

         16.8. Authorization. Tenant shall furnish to Landlord, within ten (10)
days after written request, evidence satisfactory to Landlord that the person
who executed this Lease on behalf of Tenant was duly authorized to do so. Each
individual executing this Lease on behalf of Tenant represents and warrants that
he or she is duly authorized to execute and deliver this Lease on behalf of
Tenant and that such execution is binding upon Tenant.

         16.9. Holding Over; Surrender.

               16.9.1. If Tenant holds over the Premises or any part thereof
after expiration or the earlier termination of the Term, such holding over shall
constitute a month-to-month tenancy, at a rent equal to the Base Rent in effect
immediately prior to such holding over plus one hundred percent (100%) thereof.
This paragraph shall not be construed as Landlord's permission for Tenant to
hold over. Acceptance of Rent by Landlord following expiration or termination
shall not constitute a renewal of this Lease. Without limiting the foregoing, if
Tenant holds over the Premises or any part thereof after expiration or the
earlier termination of the Term, Tenant shall indemnify, defend, protect and
hold Landlord harmless from any and all claims (including claims of succeeding
tenants), causes of action, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees),
liabilities and lawsuits resulting from such a holdover.

               16.9.2. Upon the termination of this Lease or Tenant's right to
possession of the Premises, Tenant will surrender the Premises, together with
all keys, in good condition and repair, reasonable wear and tear excepted.
Conditions existing because of Tenant's failure to perform maintenance, repairs
or replacements shall not be deemed "reasonable wear and tear."

         16.10. Joint and Several. If Tenant consists of more than one person,
the obligation of all such persons shall be joint and several.

         16.11. Covenants and Conditions. Each provision to be performed by
Tenant hereunder shall be deemed to be both a covenant and a condition.

         16.12. Addenda. The Addenda attached hereto, if any, and identified
with this Lease and initialed by the parties hereto are incorporated herein by
this reference as if fully set forth herein.
