Attn: Vice President, Corporation Administration
with a copy to: [[Tier Technologies, Inc.]]
[[3550 Engineering Drive, Suite 400 Norcross, GA 30092]]
Attn: General Counsel
 
Either party may, by such notice, designate a new or other address to which notice may be mailed.  Any notice given hereunder shall be deemed received.  Sublandlord covenants to promptly provide Subtenant with copies of all notices of default that Sublandlord delivers to, or receives from, Prime Landlord under the Prime Lease if related to the Sublease Premises.
17.           Expansion Option. As long as Subtenant is not in default, beyond any applicable  notice and cure period, Subtenant shall have, and Sublandlord hereby grants to Subtenant, a continuous expansion option (the “Expansion Option”), exercisable by written notice to Sublandlord at any time during the Sublease Term, to sublease the remaining 4th floor of the Building (or a portion thereof) containing approximately 6,054  rentable square feet for the remainder of the Sublease Term, at the same rental rate and upon the same terms and conditions as provided in this Sublease (the “Expansion Space”) to the extent the same is available for sublease and Sublandlord has not entered into any sublease or other agreement regarding the occupancy of such space.  Additionally, if at any time during the Sublease Term, Sublandlord desires to sublease the Expansion Space or any portion thereof to any third party (a “Prospective Subtenant”), Sublandlord shall provide written notice to Subtenant prior to making any offers (or requests for offers) to, or accepting any unsolicited offers from, Prospective Subtenants regarding such Expansion Space, and Subtenant may exercise its Expansion Option by giving written notice to Sublandlord within ten (10) business days after receipt of such notice that Subtenant elects to sublease the Expansion Space or applicable portion thereof.  If Subtenant does not exercise the Expansion Option within such ten (10) business day period, then Sublandlord shall be free to offer the applicable portion of the Expansion Space to a Prospective Subtenant; provided, however, that if Sublandlord does not enter a sublease with a Prospective Subtenant within ninety (90) days after providing the original notice to Subtenant, Sublandlord shall again comply with the terms of this Section 17 with respect to such Expansion Space.  If Subtenant exercises its Expansion Option, Sublandlord shall deliver the Expansion Space in its “AS IS” condition to Subtenant within thirty (30) days thereafter (subject to Prime Landlord’s consent, to the extent such consent is required). Subtenant shall commence paying Sublease Rent with respect to the Expansion Space upon the date the Expansion Space is delivered to Subtenant or such earlier date upon which Subtenant occupies or uses any portion of the Expansion Space.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Subtenant occupies or uses any portion of the Expansion Space without having first exercised its Expansion Option, Sublandlord, at its option, may deem such use or occupancy by Subtenant to be an election by Subtenant to exercise its Expansion Option and immediately upon written notice from Sublandlord to Subtenant, Subtenant shall commence paying Sublease Rent with respect to the Expansion Space. Nothing herein shall be construed to permit Subtenant to use or occupy any portion of the Expansion Space prior to the actual exercise by Subtenant of its Expansion Option.  Sublandlord and Subtenant acknowledge that the Sublease Premises are not separately demised from the Expansion Space.  Prior to subleasing the Expansion Space to a thirty party, Sublandlord agrees to construct demising walls, at its cost, to separate the Sublease Premises from the Expansion Space, provided that Sublandlord shall have no obligation to construct any demising walls unless and until such subleasing to a third party occurs.
 
18.           Moving Allowance.  Sublandlord shall provide a moving allowance of ($37,094.00) based on the amount of Two Dollars per RSF for the Sublease Premises  (the “Moving Allowance”) which may be used by Subtenant in its sole discretion toward any costs incurred by Subtenant in connection with its relocation and occupancy of the Sublease Premises.
 The Moving Allowance shall be payable by Sublandlord to Subtenant within forty-five (45) days after the Commencement Date, provided that if Sublandlord does not provide Subtenant the entire Moving Allowance within such period, Subtenant may offset any unpaid amounts against Sublease Rent or other charges coming due hereunder

19.           Miscellaneous Provisions.
 
19.1.           Governing Laws. This Sublease shall be construed under the laws of Georgia.

19.2.           Separate Provisions.  Each provision herein shall be deemed separate and distinct from all other provisions, and if any one of them shall be declared illegal or unenforceable, the same shall not affect the legality or enforceability of the other terms, conditions, and provisions hereof, which shall remain in full force and effect.

19.3.           Successors. This Sublease shall extend, apply to and firmly bind the heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns of the respective parties hereto as fully as the respective parties are themselves bound, but this provision shall not authorize the assignment of this Sublease or sublease of the Sublease Premises contrary to the provisions herein contained.

19.4.           Termination of Prime Lease. The term of this Sublease and Subtenant’s right to possession of the Sublease Premises shall terminate upon the termination of the Prime Lease for any reason unless Prime Landlord elects, in its sole discretion, to recognize Subtenant under the terms of this Sublease and otherwise treat this Sublease as a direct lease between Prime Landlord and Subtenant.  Sublandlord covenants that it will not enter into any agreement, exercise any rights or perform or fail to perform (where Sublandlord has a duty to perform) any act that will modify, terminate or amend the Prime Lease in a manner that would materially affect the Sublease (including the Sublease Term) without the prior written consent of Subtenant.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sublandlord may terminate the Prime Lease in accordance with the provisions of the Prime Lease, and without Subtenant’s consent, in the event of any casualty or condemnation.  Additionally, Sublandlord may terminate the Prime Lease in the event that Prime Landlord agrees in writing to recognize the rights of Subtenant under this Sublease and to not disturb Subtenant’s possession of the Sublease Premises.  Subtenant acknowledges that Sublandlord will be exercising its early termination option as granted under Section 12 of the Third Amendment and that Subtenant’s consent thereto is not required.

19.5.           Brokers.  Subtenant and Sublandlord each represents and warrants that it has dealt with no broker, agent or other person in connection with this Sublease other than Jones Lang LaSalle (“Broker”).  Sublandlord agrees to pay  Broker  a commission in accordance with Sublandlord’s written listing agreement.  Subtenant and Sublandlord each hereby indemnifies and holds harmless the other from and against any claims by any other broker, agent or other person claiming a commission or other form of compensation by virtue of having dealt with the indemnifying party with regard to this Sublease.  The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of this Sublease.  For purposes of clarification, Section 41 of the Prime Lease relating to brokers shall be inapplicable to this Sublease.
19.6.           Counterparts. This Sublease may be executed in counterparts, which upon execution by all parties shall constitute one integrated agreement.
