Exhibit 10.2
This Second Amendment to Office Lease Agreement (this “Amendment”) is executed as of June 18, 2021, 2021, between BC EXCHANGE CITYVIEW MASTER TENANT, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Landlord”), and APOLLO ENDOSURGERY, INC., a Delaware corporation (“Tenant”), for the purpose of amending the Office Lease Agreement between Landlord’s predecessor-in-interest and Tenant dated July 16, 2012 (the “Original Lease”). The Original Lease, as amended by a First Amendment to Office Lease Agreement dated June 11, 2018, is referred to herein as the “Lease”. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined shall be given the meanings assigned to them in the Lease.
Pursuant to the terms of the Lease, Tenant is currently leasing Suite 1.300, consisting of approximately 18,234 square feet (the “Existing Premises”), in Building 1 (the “Building”), having an address of 1120 South Capital of Texas Highway, Austin, Texas 78746. Tenant desires to (a) extend the Lease Term for a period of twelve (12) months, and (b) surrender the space depicted on Exhibit A hereto, containing approximately 7,209 square feet (the “Surrendered Premises”), and Landlord has agreed to such extension and such surrender on the terms and conditions contained herein.
For valuable consideration, whose receipt and sufficiency are acknowledged, Landlord and Tenant agree as follows:
1.Extension of Lease Term. The Lease Term is hereby extended such that it expires at 5:00 p.m., Austin, Texas time, on September 30, 2022, on the terms and conditions of the Lease, as modified hereby. Tenant shall have no further rights to extend or renew the Lease Term.
a.Effective as of 11:59 p.m., local time on September 30, 2021 (the “Surrendered Premises Termination Date”), the Lease shall terminate as to the Surrendered Premises only. Accordingly, (i) from and after the day immediately following the Surrendered Premises Termination Date, the term “Premises” shall exclude the Surrendered Premises (and by reason of such exclusion, the Premises will then contain 11,025 square feet sometimes referred to herein as the “Remaining Premises”), and (ii) from and after the Surrendered Premises Termination Date, the percentage represented by Tenant’s Pro Rata Share shall be revised and reduced (and the calculation of Additional Rent for periods after the Surrendered Premises Termination Date shall be adjusted) to reflect the elimination of the Surrendered Premises from the Premises; however, an appropriate pro rata adjustment shall be made in the calculation of Additional Rent for the calendar year in which the revised percentage becomes effective to reflect the varying size of the Premises during the period for which such calculations are made. Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, neither Landlord nor Tenant shall be released from any obligation to refund or pay, respectively, any overpayment or underpayment, respectively, of Additional Rent paid by Tenant with respect to the Surrendered Premises. From and after the Surrendered Premises Termination Date, Tenant’s Pro Rata Share shall be decreased to 7.66%, which is the percentage obtained by dividing the number of square feet in the Remaining Premises (11,025) by the number of square feet in the Property (144,002). Landlord and Tenant stipulate that the number of square feet in the Remaining Premises and the Property are correct.
b.On or before the Surrendered Premises Termination Date, Tenant shall vacate and surrender the Surrendered Premises in the condition required under Section 26 of the Lease (as if the Surrendered Premises Termination Date were the expiration date of the Lease Term as to the Surrendered Premises) and shall remove all of Tenant’s personal property from the Surrendered Premises; provided, (i) Tenant may leave its furniture, fixtures, and equipment (the “FF&E”) in the Surrendered Premises until Landlord provides written notice to Tenant, and Tenant shall remove such FF&E within thirty (30) days following Landlord’s delivery of such written notice, and (ii) Landlord will permit Tenant to maintain its server room in its current location until Landlord delivers

Exhibit 10.2
written notice to Tenant of Landlord’s intent to construct a multi-tenant corridor on the third (3rd) floor of the Building, in which event Tenant must relocate its server room to a location reasonably acceptable to Landlord, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense and (iii) until the Surrendered Premises are modified to construct a multi-tenant corridor and reception area as shown in Exhibit A, Tenant may access the Surrendered Premises to gain access to the eastern stairwell and to restroom facilities serving the floor on which the Remaining Premises is located. If Tenant fails to so vacate the Surrendered Premises, then Tenant shall be a holdover tenant with respect thereto pursuant to Section 23 of the Lease and shall pay to Landlord the holdover rent with respect to the Surrendered Premises as set forth in such Section 23.
c.Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Lease, from and after the date of this Amendment through the Surrendered Premises Termination Date, Landlord and its employees, agents, contractors, and representatives shall have the right to enter the Surrendered Premises for any purpose, including without limitation, to show the Surrendered Premises to prospective tenants and to permit inspection of the Surrendered Premises by space planners, contractors and other parties in connection with preparing the Surrendered Premises for occupancy by a prospective tenant. Landlord shall inform Tenant of upcoming visits, and such visitors shall sign in at the reception area per Tenant’s company policy.
d.Landlord will not construct a demising wall (the “Demising Wall”) to demise the Remaining Premises from the Surrendered Premises until such time that Landlord enters into a lease or other agreement with a third party for the Surrendered Premises. Prior to Landlord’s construction of the Demising Wall, Landlord will identify the Surrendered Premises via “chalk line” or other means. Following the Surrendered Premises Termination Date, Tenant shall have no right to access or occupy the Surrendered Premises, except as set forth in Section 2(b) above. If Tenant occupies any portion of the Surrendered Premises following the Surrendered Premises Termination Date (other than as provided in Section 2(b) of this Amendment), Landlord shall provide written notice thereof to Tenant, and Tenant shall take reasonable steps to remove any occupation of the Surrendered Premises within one business day following Landlord’s delivery of such notice. Such written notice shall be provided per Section 25 of the Lease and shall also include an email notification to or such other recipient designated by Tenant in writing. If such occupation is not remedied within the one business day period, the Remaining Premises shall automatically be expanded to include the Surrendered Premises, and Tenant shall pay Rent for the Surrendered Premises, with the Base Rent being calculated using the per square foot rates then payable for the Remaining Premises.
e.Tenant may request to expand the square footage of the Remaining Premises any time up until December 31, 2021 at the existing Annual Base Rent Rate per square foot for the Remaining Premises for the remainder of the Term of the Lease. Such expansion shall be subject to Landlord’s prior written consent, which shall be in Landlord’s discretion. Any additional square footage added to the Remaining Premises shall be calculated per Section 2(a) and Section 3 of this Amendment.
3.Base Rent. Beginning October 1, 2021 (the “Renewal Date”), the monthly Base Rent shall be the following amounts for the following periods of time:
PeriodAnnual Base Rent Rate/SFMonthly Base Rent
10/1/21 – 9/30/22$26.00$23,887.50

4.Condition of Premises; Tenant Improvements. Tenant hereby accepts the Remaining Premises in their “AS-IS” condition and Landlord shall have no obligation for any construction or finish-out allowance or providing to Tenant any other tenant inducement.

5.Signage. Section 8(C) of the Original Lease is amended by deleting the last sentence thereof.

6.Parking. On the Renewal Date, Section I of Exhibit E to the Lease is amended to provide that Landlord shall make available to Tenant the use of forty-four (44) of the Building’s unreserved parking spaces (the “Spaces”) in the Building parking lot. Tenant may convert up to a total of ten (10) of such unreserved Spaces

9.Confidentiality. Each Party acknowledges the terms and conditions of the Lease (as amended hereby) are to remain confidential for the other Party’s benefit and may not be disclosed by the Party to anyone, by any manner or means, directly or indirectly, without the other Party’s prior written consent. The consent by the other Party to any disclosures shall not be deemed to be a waiver on the part of such other Party of any prohibition against any future disclosure.
10.Brokerage. Landlord and Tenant each warrant to the other that is has not dealt with any broker or agent in connection with the negotiation or execution of this Amendment other than Transwestern, representing Landlord, and Jones Lang LaSalle Brokerage, Inc., representing Tenant, whose commissions shall be paid by Landlord pursuant to separate written agreements. Tenant and Landlord shall each indemnify the other against all costs, expenses, attorneys’ fees, and other liability for commissions or other compensation claimed by any other brokers or agents claiming the same by, through, or under the indemnifying party.
11.Prohibited Persons and Transactions. Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that Tenant is currently in compliance with and shall at all times during the Lease Term (including any extension thereof) remain in compliance with the regulations of the Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”) of the Department of the Treasury (including those named on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List) and any statute, executive order (including the September 24, 2001, Executive Order Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism), or other governmental action relating thereto.
12.No Representations. Landlord and Landlord's agents have made no representations or promises, express or implied, in connection with this Amendment except as expressly set forth herein and Tenant has not relied on any representations except as expressly set forth herein.
13.Ratification. Tenant hereby ratifies and confirms its obligations under the Lease, and represents and warrants to Landlord that it has no defenses thereto.
