(“Tenant”), a Delaware corporation.


WHEREAS, Original Landlord, and Tenant are parties to a lease dated September 20, 2017 (“Original Lease”) regarding certain premises consisting of the “Original Premises” as defined therein; and

WHEREAS, Landlord has acquired the interest of Original Landlord; and


WHEREAS, Landlord and Tenant desire to further amend the Lease as provided herein.


NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained, the receipt and legal sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Landlord and Tenant agree as follows:


1. Defined Terms. Capitalized Terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Lease. The Original Lease, as amended by the First Amendment and by the Second Amendment, shall hereinafter be referred to as the “Lease”.


2. Extension of Term. The Term of the Lease is hereby extended for a period commencing January 1, 2022 (the “Extended Term Commencement Date”) through and including June 30, 2023 (the “Third Amendment Extended Term”).
