shall fail, neglect or refuse to vacate or deliver possession of the premises to SUBLESSOR, then

SUBLESSOR, all provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect during such holdover time,
excepting only those provisions of this Agreement dealing with the amount of rent owed SUBLESSOR

SUBLESSEE is in default, then SUBLESSEE shall be indebted to SUBLESSOR for all amounts so
paid or advanced and such indebtedness shall be paid to SUBLESSOR on demand. Provided however,
SUBLESSOR’s right to pay or perform such obligations or SUBLESSOR’s payment or performance of
such obligations shall not imply any duty on the part of SUBLESSOR to make such payment or
performance, nor constitute a waiver of such default or deprive SUBLESSOR of any right of action or
other remedy it may have on account of any such default by SUBLESSEE.
In the event of a default, all rights and remedies of SUBLESSOR under this Agreement shall be
cumulative and none shall exclude any other rights or remedies allowed by law.
