(the “Landlord”) to lease approximately 234,622 square feet located at 3090 Olsen Drive, San Jose, California (the “Premises”).  The Premises are expected to be renamed 500 Santana Row.


The Lease term (the “Term”) is ten years and nine months from the date that is the earlier of (i) one hundred twenty (120) days after the date upon which the Landlord delivers the Premises to the Company with certain Landlord work completed and (ii) the date on which the Company substantially completes certain work in connection with the preparation for occupancy as set forth in the Lease and begins conducting business from the Premises. The Term is expected to commence on or about September 1, 2016.


Annual base rent will be approximately $10.3 million for the first year of the Term and is subject to annual increases of 3.0% during the Term. The base rent payments do not include the Company’s proportionate share of any operating expenses and taxes for the Premises, which are payable in addition to base rent.  The Company has the option to extend the Term for the Premises for up to two renewal terms of five years each, provided that the rent would be subject to market adjustment at the beginning of each renewal term.


During the Term, the Company has a right of first offer with respect to the Landlord’s potential development and lease of the property to be known as 700 Santana Row and, under certain circumstances, the property to be known as 900 Santana Row, in each case if developed by the Landlord.
