3.Monthly Base Rent. Notwithstanding anything in the Existing Lease to the contrary, in consideration of the Additional TI Allowance, commencing on the Amendment Effective Date, the monthly Base Rent shall increase by Thirty-Three Thousand Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($33,750.00) each month for the six (6) month period following the Amendment Effective Date (the “Base Rent Adjustment Period”) for an aggregate increase to Base Rent in the amount of Two Hundred Two Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($202,500.00) (the “Additional Base Rent”), subject to the adjustments to Base Rent set forth in the Lease, including the Base Rent adjustments set forth in Section 6.5 of the Existing Lease on each anniversary of the Commencement Date.

Accordingly, Section 2.2 of the Existing Lease is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

"6.4.    Security Deposit. On or before the Execution Date of this Lease, Tenant shall deposit the sum in cash set forth in Section 2.2 (the "Security Deposit"), which sum shall be held by Landlord as security for the faithful performance by Tenant of all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease to be kept and performed by Tenant during the Term. Landlord shall not be required to maintain a separate account for the Security Deposit, but may intermingle it with other funds of Landlord. If Tenant defaults with respect to any provision of this Lease, then without notice to Tenant, Landlord may (but shall not be required to) apply all or any part of the Security Deposit for the payment of any Rent or any other sum in default. If any portion of the Security Deposit is so used or applied, then Tenant shall, upon demand therefor, restore the Security Deposit to its original amount. If Tenant shall fully and faithfully perform every provision of this Lease to be performed by it, then the unapplied portion of the Security Deposit shall be returned to Tenant, or, at Landlord's option, to the last assignee of Tenant's interest hereunder, within sixty (60) days following the expiration of the Term. Tenant shall not be entitled to any interest on the Security Deposit. Tenant hereby irrevocably waives and relinquishes any and all rights, benefits, or protections, if any, Tenant now has, or in the future may have under any provision of law which (i) establishes the time frame by

which a landlord must refund a security deposit under a lease, or (ii) provides that a landlord may claim from a security deposit only those sums reasonably necessary to remedy defaults in the payment of rent, to repair damage caused by a tenant, or to clean the subject premises. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that (A) any statutory time frames for the return of a security deposit are superseded by the express period identified in this Section 6.4, and (B) rather than be so limited, Landlord may claim from the Security Deposit (i) any and all sums expressly identified in this Section 6.4, and (ii) any additional sums reasonably necessary to compensate Landlord for any and all losses or damages caused by Tenant's default of this Lease, including, but not limited to, all damages or rent due upon termination of this Lease. In the event of bankruptcy or other debtor-creditor proceedings against Tenant, the Security Deposit shall be deemed to be applied first to the payment of Rent and other charges due Landlord for all periods prior to the filing of such proceedings."
5.Permitted Transfer. The first sentence of Section 16.8 of the Existing Lease is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
"Tenant may assign its entire interest under this Lease or sublease all or a portion of the Premises without the consent of Landlord to: (i) an affiliate, subsidiary or parent of Tenant; (ii) any entity into which that Tenant or an affiliated party may merge or consolidate; (iii) any entity that acquires all or substantially all of the assets of Tenant; each a “Permitted Transfer” and such transferee a “Permitted Transferee”, provided that (a) Tenant notifies Landlord at least twenty (20) days prior to the effective date of any such Permitted Transfer, (b) Tenant is not in default and such assignment or sublease is not a subterfuge by Tenant to avoid its obligations under this Lease, (c) such Permitted Transferee shall have a tangible net worth (not including goodwill as an asset) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“Net Worth”) at least equal to the Net Worth of the original Tenant on the day immediately preceding the effective date of such assignment or sublease and reasonably sufficient to comply with the obligations under this Lease, (d) no assignment or sublease relating to this Lease, whether with or without Landlord’s consent, shall relieve Tenant from any liability under this Lease, (e) the liability of such Permitted Transferee under either an assignment or sublease shall be joint and several with Tenant and each Guarantor; and (f) the ultimate parent company of any Permitted Transferee executes a Guaranty in favor of Landlord substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D."
6.Tenant Work Insurance Schedule. Exhibit E-1 of the Existing Lease is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with Exhibit E-1 attached to this Amendment.
7.Broker. Each of Tenant and Landlord represents and warrants that it has not dealt with any broker or agent in the negotiation for or the obtaining of this Amendment and agrees to reimburse, indemnify, save, defend (at the other party’s option and with counsel reasonably acceptable to the other party, at the indemnifying party’s sole cost and expense) and hold harmless the other party for, from and against any and all cost or liability for compensation claimed by any such broker or agent employed or engaged by it or claiming to have been employed or engaged by it.
8.No Default. Each of Tenant and Landlord represents, warrants and covenants that, to the best of such party’s knowledge, Landlord and Tenant are not in default of any of their respective obligations under the Existing Lease and no event has occurred that, with the passage of time or the giving of notice (or both) would constitute a default by either Landlord or Tenant thereunder.

9.Effect of Amendment. Except as modified by this Amendment, the Existing Lease and all the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions thereof shall remain in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and affirmed. In the event of any conflict between the terms contained in this Amendment and the Existing Lease, the terms herein contained shall supersede and control the obligations and liabilities of the parties.
10.Successors and Assigns. Each of the covenants, conditions and agreements contained in this Amendment shall inure to the benefit of and shall apply to and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective heirs, legatees, devisees, executors, administrators and permitted successors and assigns and sublessees. Nothing in this section shall in any way alter the provisions of the Lease restricting assignment or subletting.

The captions of the paragraphs and subparagraphs in this Amendment are inserted and included solely for convenience and shall not be considered or given any effect in construing the provisions hereof. All exhibits hereto are incorporated herein by reference.
