        (ii)    the amount estimated by Lessor to be the present value of all Rent and other amounts
                payable by Lessee for the Equipment from date of the payment to date of expiration of
                the then current term of the Lease, (calculated at a [NUMBER IN WRITING] percent
                ([##]%) per year simple interest discount), but excepting therefrom any amounts which
                would not actually be incurred by either party by virtue of the non-existence of the
                equipment (e.g. personal property tax); plus

        (iii)   the fair market value of the Equipment, as set forth in Schedule “A”, less a reasonable
                monthly allowance for depreciation should the Initial Term of the Lease have already

policies, copies of the policies, or certificates of insurance to Lessee. Lessor shall be named as an
additional insured on all such insurance policies.

casualty which for any reason shall not be covered by any policy of insurance hereinabove mentioned,
and expressly agrees to pay forthwith the amount of any deductible applicable to any such casualty or

fact that Lessee or Lessor has an insurance claim under disability or any other kind of insurance.
