Section 3.02 Commencement of Term.
The Term shall commence on January 1, 2020 (the Commencement Date). The entry or presence of Tenant on the Premises prior to the Commencement Date for the purpose of conducting its business shall not constitute commencement of the Term.

The first Extension Term shall commence (if properly exercised) immediately upon the expiration of the Initial Term, and the second Extension Term shall commence (if properly exercised) immediately upon the expiration of the first Extension Term. In order to exercise an option to extend the Term of this Lease as provided herein, Tenant shall give Landlord written notice of such exercise not less than one hundred eighty (180) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or the first Extension Term, as applicable (the Renewal Notice). All of the terms and conditions contained in this Lease shall be applicable and shall continue in full force and effect during an Extension Term.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Term shall include all Extension Terms properly exercised by Tenant as set forth in this Section 3.03.
ARTICLE 4. RENT
Section 4.01 Base Rent.
The annual base rent (the Base Rent) for the initial twelve (12) month period of the Term shall be $3,704,256.50 (which sum is the product obtained by multiplying 172,291 by $21.50); provided however, Tenant shall receive a credit against Base Rent in the amount of $100,000.00 applicable to each of the four (4) quarterly payment of Base Rent in 2020 for a total credit equal to $400,000.00. Beginning with the first (1st) annual anniversary of the Commencement Date, and continuing with each subsequent annual anniversary of the Commencement Date, the Base Rent paid by Tenant shall be increased by two percent (2.0%) of the Base Rent in effect during the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period. All references in this Lease to Base Rent shall be deemed and construed to include the annual adjustment provided herein.
The Base Rent payable hereunder for the first twelve (12) months of the first Extension Term shall be adjusted so as to equal the Fair Market Rent (as defined below), as mutually determined by Landlord and Tenant through the process of negotiation; provided, however, that in no event shall the Base Rent for the first twelve (12) months of the first Extension Period be less than the Base Rent payable for the last twelve (12) months of the Initial Term. The Base Rent payable hereunder for each succeeding twelve (12) month period of the first Extension Term (and the second Extension Term, if exercised by Tenant) shall equal one hundred two percent (102%) of the Base Rent for the immediately prior twelve (12) month period during the Term. If for any reason Landlord and Tenant shall not agree in writing upon the Fair Market Rent with respect to the first twelve (12) months of the first Extension Period at least four (4) months prior to the commencement thereof, then the Fair Market Rent shall be determined by duly licensed real estate brokers having at least fifteen (15) years experience in the leasing of commercial real estate in the market area of the Property, one such broker to be designated by each of Landlord and Tenant. If either party shall fail to designate its broker by giving notice of the name of such broker to the
other party within fifteen (15) days after receiving notice of the name of the other partys broker, then the broker chosen by the other party shall determine the Fair Market Rent for the first twelve (12) months of the first Extension Period and his or her determination shall be final and conclusive. The brokers shall make their decisions within ten (10) business days of appointment. If the brokers designated by Landlord and Tenant shall disagree as to the Fair Market Rent, but if the difference between their estimates of such Fair Market Rent shall be five percent (5%) or less of the greater of the estimates, then the average of their estimates shall be the Fair Market Rent for purposes hereof. If the brokers designated by Landlord and Tenant shall disagree as to the amount of Fair Market Rent, and if their estimates of such Fair Market Rent shall vary by more than five percent (5%) of the greater of said estimates, then they shall jointly select a third broker meeting the qualifications set forth above, and his or her estimate of Fair Market Rent shall be the Fair Market Rent for the first twelve (12) months of the first Extension Period for purposes hereof if it is not greater than the higher of the other two estimates and not less than the lower of the other two estimates. If said third brokers estimate is greater than the other two estimates, then the higher of the two original estimates shall be the Fair Market Rent for purposes hereof; and if the estimate of the third broker shall be less than the other two estimates, then the lesser of the two original estimates shall be the Fair Market Rent for purposes hereof. Each of Landlord and Tenant shall pay for the services of its broker, and if a third broker shall be chosen, then each of Landlord and Tenant shall pay for one-half of the services of the third broker. Fair Market Rent as used herein, shall be equal to the economic terms, at which tenants comparable to Tenant, as of the first day of the first Extension Period, are leasing for a comparable term, non-renewal, non-equity space comparable in size to the Premises, from a willing, comparable landlord, at arms length, which comparable space is located in Comparable Buildings in the vicinity (i.e., of a similar age and quality considering any recent renovations or modernization, and floor plan size) or, if such Comparable Buildings, or comparable space within Comparable Buildings, is not available, adjustments shall be made in the determination of Fair Market Rent to reflect the age and quality of the Building and Premises as contrasted to other buildings used for comparison purposes), with similar amenities, taking into consideration size, location, floor level, proposed term of the lease, extent of services to be provided, as well as all tenant concessions and inducements.
Section 4.02 Payment of Rent.
Tenant shall pay the Base Rent in quarterly installments, in advance, and without demand on the first (1st) day of each and every quarter during the Term.
Section 4.03 Late Payment of Rent.
In the event any installment of Base Rent is not received within five (5) days following the due date, such amount shall accrue interest at the rate of fifteen percent (15%) per annum (or the maximum interest rate allowed by law if less than 15%), and such interest shall be due and payable by Tenant to Landlord for the period of time said payment is delinquent as additional rent hereunder; provided that a default shall occur only as specified in Section 13.01 herein. The imposition of this charge shall not be deemed a waiver or be in lieu of Landlords other rights hereunder.
ARTICLE 5. BUILDING OPERATIONAL EXPENSES AND TAXES
Section 5.01 Operational Expenses.
Tenant shall be responsible for all expenses and charges which, during the Term, shall be incurred in connection with the possession, occupation, operation, alteration, maintenance, repair and use of the Premises, and any other sums which, except for the execution and delivery of this Lease, would be chargeable against the Premises or the owner, occupant or possessor of the Premises.

In the event the Premises shall be damaged by fire, earthquake, other elements or other casualty during the Term and Tenant does not elect to terminate this Lease pursuant to Section 8.04(b) below, Tenant shall give prompt notice of such casualty to Landlord and shall proceed with reasonable diligence to carry out any necessary demolition and to restore, repair, replace and rebuild such Building and improvements at Tenants own cost and expense. If any insurance proceeds shall have been paid by reason of such damage or destruction, then Tenant shall be entitled to such proceeds in order to complete such repairs. If at any time Tenant shall fail or neglect to supply sufficient workmen or sufficient materials of proper quality, or fail in any other respect to prosecute such work of demolition, restoration, repair, replacement or rebuilding with reasonable diligence, then Landlord may give to Tenant written notice of such failure or neglect, and if such failure or neglect continues for more than sixty (60) days after such notice, then Landlord, in addition to all other rights which Landlord may have, may enter upon the Premises, provide labor and/or materials, cause the performance of any contract and/or do such other acts and things as Landlord may deem advisable to prosecute such work, in which event Landlord shall be entitled to reimbursement of its costs and expenses out of any insurance proceeds for application to the cost of such work. All costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in carrying out such work for which Landlord is not reimbursed out of insurance proceeds or other moneys shall be borne by Tenant and shall be payable by Tenant to Landlord as additional rent within ten (10) days of demand therefor, which demand may be made by Landlord from time to time as such costs and expenses are incurred, in addition to any or all damages to which Landlord shall be entitled hereunder. Rent shall not abate hereunder by reason of any damage to or of the Premises, and Tenant shall continue to perform and fulfill all of Tenants obligations, covenants and agreements hereunder notwithstanding any such damage or destruction.
(b) Substantial Casualty. If (i) the Premises shall be damaged by fire, earthquake, other elements or other casualty during the Term and the Board of Directors of Tenant shall reasonably determine in good faith that the Premises has been rendered unsuitable for continued use in Tenants business, or (ii) during the last twelve (12) months of the Term, the Premises is damaged by fire, earthquake, other elements or other casualty and the amount of the damage is greater than twenty-five percent (25%) of the replacement cost of the Premises (excluding costs of footings, foundations, excavation and paving) (each a Substantial Casualty), then Tenant may terminate this Lease by delivery of written notice of termination to Landlord within ninety (90) days after the Substantial Casualty occurs. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall be entitled to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section 8.04(b) if and only if the insurance proceeds resulting
from such casualty event (which are to be paid in full to Landlord in conjunction with such termination of this Lease by Tenant) are sufficient to fully restore the damaged or destroyed portion of the Premises (or, if the insurance proceeds from such casualty event are not sufficient to fully restore the damaged or destroyed portion of the Premises, then Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease by paying to Landlord an amount equal to the difference between the insurance proceeds resulting from such casualty event and the amount sufficient to fully restore the damaged or destroyed portion of the Premises). Upon such termination, Tenant shall surrender the Premises to Landlord, and neither party shall have any further obligations or liabilities under this Lease (except for such obligations and liabilities as would survive the normal expiration of the Term, all of which shall survive such early termination).

At the termination of this Lease, Tenant shall tender the Premises to Landlord in good condition and repair, subject only to the consequences and effect of reasonable wear and tear and permissible alteration, additions and changes under Section 8.03, condemnation, casualty and acts of God, and the terms of Section 8.04 herein.
Section 8.07 Mechanics Liens.
Tenant will pay for all work performed on the Premises by its employees or contractors and shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from all liability resulting from any lien or claim of lien arising out of such work. Tenant shall have the right, at its sole cost and expense, to contest the validity of any such lien or claimed lien. Landlord shall have the right to enter the Premises for the purpose of posting notices of nonliability for work performed at the direction of Tenant.

Tenant shall promptly take all necessary action to cause the same to be discharged or removed.
ARTICLE 9. CONDEMNATION
Section 9.01 Condemnation.

If the net condemnation award exceeds the cost of repair, Landlord may retain such excess. All condemnation proceeds shall be made available to Tenant to complete such repairs. This Lease shall continue in full force and effect, and Base Rent shall not be abated, as a result of such taking.
(b) Substantial Condemnation. In the event of a condemnation of all or substantially all of the Premises (a taking of substantially all of the Premises shall mean a taking which, in the good faith opinion of Tenants Board of Directors, renders the Premises unsuitable for continued use in Tenants trade or business) (a Substantial Condemnation), this Lease shall terminate and expire on the date of such Substantial Condemnation, and Base Rent hereunder shall be apportioned and paid to the date of such Substantial Condemnation. If this Lease shall terminate as a result of a Substantial Condemnation, then Landlord shall be entitled to all of the condemnation award to compensate Landlord for: (a) the value of the Premises, (b) the diminution in the value of land which is not taken and which is owned by Landlord in the vicinity of the Premises, and (c) the loss of future rental income from the Premises. In such case, Tenant may pursue a separate claim against the condemning authority for moving expenses, for the value of its furniture, equipment and trade fixtures, and for loss of business, but not for the value of Tenants leasehold estate (which Tenant waives and relinquishes to Landlord in full), and in no event shall any such separate award diminish in any respect the condemnation award that Landlord is entitled to receive under this Section 9.0l(b).
Section 9.02 Notice of Condemnation.
Landlord shall, immediately after it receives notice of the intention of any such authority to appropriate or take all or any portion of the Premises, give to Tenant notice in writing of such intended appropriation or taking.
Section 9.03 Voluntary Sale as Taking.

Landlord shall not be liable for any damage or liability of any kind or for any damage or injury to persons or property during the Term from any cause whatsoever by reason of the use, occupation, and enjoyment of the Premises by Tenant or any person thereon or holding under Tenant. Tenant will indemnify and hold harmless Landlord from all liability on account of any such damage or injury and from all liens, claims and demands arising out of the use of any improvement upon the Premises and its facilities or any repairs, construction or alterations which Tenant may make upon the Premises.

ARTICLE 12. TENANTS RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL
For and in consideration of the sum of Ten and No/100 ($10.00) Dollars and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Landlord, for itself and for its successors and assigns, agrees during the Term of this Lease not to sell, transfer, pledge, encumber or otherwise convey any interest in the Premises (each, a Transfer) without first notifying Tenant and providing Tenant with the right of first refusal to which it is entitled as herein provided for. The parties hereby agree that they shall cause the Memorandum described in Section 16.01 herein to contain a reference to the right of first refusal granted herein.
(a) Notice. In the event there should exist a bona fide offer for the purchase of the Premises, Landlord, prior to the acceptance of such offer and the consummation of any sale thereof, shall notify Tenant in writing of such offer and shall offer to Tenant the opportunity to purchase the Premises upon the same terms and conditions as is contained in the bona fide offer. Tenant shall have ten (10) days from the date of receipt of such written notice within which to notify Landlord of its desire to exercise its right of first refusal, and any sale resulting therefrom shall be closed thereafter as soon as reasonably practicable. In the event Tenant should fail to notify Landlord of its desire to exercise its right of first refusal within the time allowed herein or fail to consummate the purchase within a reasonable time thereafter, then Landlord shall be free to Transfer the Premises pursuant to the bona fide offer within a period of one hundred twenty (120) days thereafter (the Closing Timeframe). An offer shall not be deemed a bona fide offer unless it is made in good faith, in writing and by a person or corporation financially able to consummate the transaction. Any material change in the economic terms or conditions of a bona fide offer shall necessitate a further notice and the granting of a further right of first refusal to Tenant. The right of first refusal herein shall terminate and cease upon any Transfer of the Premises to a third party that is not related to Beacon Investment Corporation or to an affiliate of Beacon Investment Corporation, provided that such Transfer occurs within the Closing Timeframe.
(b) Specific Performance. Landlord and Tenant hereby expressly acknowledge that any breach of this agreement concerning Tenants right of first refusal will result in irreparable injury to Tenant, and that therefore Tenant shall be entitled to obtain the specific performance of said agreement and a restraining order or injunction prohibiting Landlord from violating said agreement as an appropriate remedy in a court of proper jurisdiction. This right shall not preclude Tenant from obtaining any other appropriate relief to which it may be entitled, including all costs and reasonable attorneys fees incurred in enforcing said agreement.
ARTICLE 13. DEFAULT AND REMEDIES
Section 13.01 Default by Tenant Termination After Notice Opportunity to Remedy.
Should (i) default be made by Tenant in the payment of any portion of the rent, taxes or other charges when due and should such default continue for more than fourteen (14) days after written notice to Tenant from Landlord specifying such default, or (ii) default be made, and continue for more than thirty (30) days after written notice from Landlord specifying such default in the performance of any of the other covenants on the part of Tenant to be kept or performed, then, and only in such event, Landlord may at Landlords option terminate Tenants right to possession of the Premises by written notice to Tenant and shall have the immediate right of reentry
to remove all persons and property from same and dispose of or store such property as it deems fit, and in addition or in the alternative to take such other action or pursue such other remedies and recover such damages as may be permitted under the laws of the State of North Carolina; provided, however, that no such termination shall be effected or action taken or remedy pursued until the expiration of such additional period, if any, as may be reasonably necessary to remedy a default involving other than the payment of money, if it is of such character as to require more than thirty (30) days to remedy and Tenant proceeds promptly and diligently to cure and correct the same within a reasonable time period and, further provided that the period for curing any default shall not be extended so as to jeopardize the interest of Landlord in the Premises or subject Landlord to civil or criminal liability.
Section 13.02 Landlords Default After Notice and Opportunity to Remedy.
Should default be made by Landlord and continue for more than thirty (30) days after written notice from Tenant to Landlord, in addition to any other remedies available to Tenant at law or in equity, Tenant may at Tenants option terminate this Lease forthwith by written notice to Landlord.
Section 13.03 Right to Remedy Default.
Each party shall have the right after ten (10) days written notice to the other (but shall not be obligated) to correct or remedy any default upon the part of the other, not cured within the notice period, under any provision of this Lease, and both parties agree that, if a party shall correct or remedy any such default, the other party shall pay to the performing party the cost of correction upon demand, provided such notice shall not be required in the event of the failure of Tenant to maintain the required insurance or pay taxes as herein required. The foregoing ten (10) day period shall not be applicable with respect to a failure of Tenant to maintain the insurance required or pay taxes by this Lease.
Section 13.04 Termination for Tenants Bankruptcy or Insolvency.
Tenant agrees that in the event all or substantially all of its assets are placed in the hands of a receiver or trustee, and such receivership or trusteeship continues for a period of sixty (60) days, or should Tenant make an assignment for the benefit of creditors or be adjudicated a bankrupt, or should Tenant institute any proceedings under the Bankruptcy Act, as the same now exists or under any amendment thereof, which may hereafter be enacted, or under any other act relating to the subject of bankruptcy wherein Tenant seeks to be adjudicated a bankrupt, or seeks to be discharged of its debts, or to effect a plan of liquidation, or should any involuntary proceeding be filed against Tenant under any such bankruptcy laws and Tenant consents thereto or acquiesces therein by pleading or default, then this Lease or any interest in and to the Premises shall not become an asset in any of such proceedings and all rent payable by Tenant to Landlord for the remainder of the Term shall immediately become due and payable by Tenant to Landlord without notice of default of any kind, which notice is hereby expressly waived by Tenant. Such rent for the remainder of the Term shall be calculated by using the Base Rent in effect at the time of Tenants default and discounting it to present value at the time of default by applying the judgment rate then in effect. Landlord and Tenant agree that due to the difficulty of measuring Landlords
damages in such event, such future rent shall constitute liquidated damages which shall compensate Landlord for Tenants default. In any such event, and in addition to any and all rights or remedies of Landlord hereunder or by law provided, it shall be lawful for Landlord at its option to declare the Term ended and to re-enter the Premises and take possession thereof and to remove all persons therefrom, and Tenant shall have no further claim thereon or hereunder.
ARTICLE 14. SUBORDINATION AND MORTGAGEE.
Section 14.01 Subordination of Lease to Future Liens.
Tenant hereby subjects and subordinates all or any of its rights under this Lease to any and all mortgages and deeds of trust now existing or placed on the Premises in the future; provided, however, Tenant will not be disturbed in the quiet and peaceful use and enjoyment of the Premises so long as Tenant is not in default hereunder and Tenants options and rights to purchase as herein set forth shall not be affected by any action taken under or pursuant to such deed of trust, provided Tenant is not in default hereunder. Landlord and Tenant agree that this Lease shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any default or foreclosure under any such mortgage or deed of trust, and that Tenant will attorn to the mortgagee, trustee or beneficiary of such mortgage or deed of trust and their successors or assigns, or the purchaser or assignee under any such foreclosure. Tenant will, upon request by Landlord, execute and deliver to Landlord, or to any other person designated by Landlord, any instrument or instruments required to give effect to the provisions of this Article 14, so long as Landlord first obtains from any lender connected with such request a written agreement providing: As long as Tenant performs its obligations under this Lease, no foreclosure of, deed given in lieu of foreclosure of, or sale under the encumbrance, and no steps or procedures taken under the encumbrance, shall affect Tenants rights under this Lease. Similarly, with respect to any existing mortgages or deeds of trust, Landlord (i) represents and warrants to Tenant that the holder or holders thereof either have no right to consent to or approve of this Lease or Landlord has obtained any such required consents or approvals and (ii) shall cause each holder thereof to deliver to Tenant an instrument which, among other things reasonably requested by the parties, shall provide that: As long as Tenant performs its obligations under this Lease, no foreclosure of, deed given in lieu of foreclosure of, or sale under the encumbrance, and no steps or procedures taken under the encumbrance, shall affect Tenants rights under this Lease.
Section 14.02 Notice to Mortgagee and Right to Cure Landlords Default.
If the Premises or any part thereof is at any time subject to a first deed of trust and if Tenant is given notice thereof; including the post office address of the beneficiary in such deed of trust, then notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease to the contrary, Tenant shall not terminate this Lease for any default on the part of Landlord without first giving written notice to such beneficiary specifying the default in reasonable detail, and affording such beneficiary sixty (60) days from the date of such written notice from Tenant to cure such default.
Section 14.03 Tenants Consent to Changes in Lease.
If, in connection with obtaining financing for the Premises, a banking, insurance or other recognized institutional lender shall request reasonable modifications in this Lease as a condition
to such financing, Tenant will not unreasonably withhold, delay or defer its consent thereto, provided that such modification does not increase the obligations of Tenant hereunder or adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created or Tenants use and enjoyment of the Premises.
ARTICLE 15. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
Section 15.01 No Waiver of Breach.
No failure by either Landlord or Tenant to insist upon the strict performance by the other of any covenant, agreement, term or condition of this Lease or to exercise any right or remedy consequent upon a breach thereof shall constitute a waiver of any such breach or of such covenant, agreement, term or condition. No waiver of any breach shall affect or alter this Lease, but each and every covenant, condition, agreement and term of this Lease shall continue in full force and effect with respect to any other then existing or subsequent breach.
Section 15.02 Time of Essence.

If either party shall be delayed or prevented from the performance of any act required by this Lease by reason of act of God, strikes, lockouts, labor troubles, inability to procure materials, restrictive governmental laws or regulations or other cause, without fault and beyond the reasonable control of the party obligated (financial inability excepted), performance of such act shall be excused for the period of the delay; and the period of the performance of any such act shall be extended for a period equivalent to the period of such delay; provided, however, nothing in this Section 15.04 shall excuse Tenant from the prompt payment of any rental or other charge required of Tenant.
Section 15.05 Successor in Interest.
Landlord shall not assign, transfer, or otherwise dispose of its interest in the Premises or this Lease without first providing Tenant with the right of first refusal to which it is entitled as provided in Article 12 hereof and, in the event Tenant declines to exercise such right, without the written agreement of the assignee, transferee or recipient of Landlords interest that it covenants and agrees to assume all the liabilities and obligations of the Landlord under this Lease. In the event of such valid assignment, Landlord shall be entirely freed and relieved of all liabilities and obligations of the Landlord under this Lease which accrue from or after the date of such sale.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, it is specifically understood and agreed that the liability of Landlord hereunder shall be limited to the equity of Landlord in the Land in the event of a breach by Landlord of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of, this Lease to be performed by Landlord. In furtherance of the foregoing, Tenant hereby agrees that any judgment it may obtain against Landlord as a result of a breach of any of the terms, covenants or conditions hereof by Landlord shall be enforceable solely against the Landlords fee simple interest in the Premises.
Section 15.06 Entire Agreement.
This Lease contains the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the matters covered by this Lease. No other agreement, statement or promise made by any party, or to any employee, officer or agent of any party, which is not contained in these documents shall be binding or valid.
Section 15.07 Partial Invalidity.
If any covenant, condition or provision of this Lease is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remainder of the provisions shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated.
Section 15.08 Relationship of Parties.
Nothing contained in this Lease shall be deemed or construed by the parties or by any third person to create the relationship of principal and agent or of partnership or of joint venture or of any association between Landlord and Tenant. Neither the method of computation of rent nor any other provisions contained in this Lease nor any acts of the parties in connection with this Lease shall be deemed to create any relationship between Landlord and Tenant, other than the relationship of Landlord and Tenant.
