not waived by Landlord, the foregoing abatement of Base Monthly Rent shall immediately cease, Tenant shall promptly reimburse Landlord for the previously abated Base Monthly Rent, and Tenant shall thereafter pay the full Base Monthly Rent, without the abatement. If this Lease shall terminate prior to its scheduled Expiration Date due to a Default by Tenant, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord the amount of the abated Base Monthly Rent.

3.    Tenant Improvement Allowance. Landlord shall provide Tenant with a Tenant Improvement Allowance in the amount of $45.00 per rentable square foot of the Building (a total of $45 x 26,125 =
$1,175,625.00) to be used to reimburse Tenant for real property improvements that were made to the Premises prior to the date of this Third Amendment (and not for furnishing, fixtures or equipment). The Tenant Improvement Allowance shall be disbursed by Landlord to Tenant within ten (10) business days following the full execution of this Third Amendment in accordance with payment instructions provided by Tenant to Landlord. Landlord acknowledges that Landlord has received such supporting documentation as Landlord has reasonably requested with respect to such reimbursement.

4.    Security Deposit/Letter of Credit. Pursuant to the terms of the Lease, Landlord currently holds a letter of credit as a Security Deposit in the amount of $547,963.70. Tenant shall maintain such letter of credit (or any replacement letter of credit permitted pursuant to the Lease) until the date that is three (3) months after the expiration of the Term of the Lease, as extended by this Third Amendment.

In lieu of the Security Deposit Reduction provisions set forth in the Basic Lease Information provisions of the Lease, and which provisions are hereby deleted in their entirety; provided Tenant is not then in Default under the terms of the Lease, the letter of credit will be reduced as follows:

The letter of credit shall be reduced on November 1, 2021 to the amount of $450,000.00. The letter of credit shall be reduced on September 1, 2025 to the amount of $300,000.00. The letter of credit shall be reduced on September 1, 2026 to the amount of $150,000.00.

5.    Status of Lease. Except as set forth herein, the Lease shall remain unamended and in full force and effect. This Third Amendment and the Lease shall be construed as a whole in order to effectuate the intent of the parties to amend the Lease in the manner specified in this Third Amendment. If any provision of the Lease conflicts with the terms of this Third Amendment, then the provisions of this Third Amendment shall control.

6.    Representations and Warranties of Tenant. As a material inducement to Landlord to enter into this Third Amendment, Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that, as of the date of this Third Amendment, to Tenant’s knowledge, (a) there are no defaults by Tenant under the Lease, and (b) no circumstance has occurred which, but for the expiration of any applicable grace period, would constitute an event of default by Landlord or Tenant under the Lease.

7.    Brokers. Neither party hereto has had any dealings with any real estate broker, agent or finder, in connection with this Third Amendment other than Newmark (“Broker”) representing Tenant, and neither party hereto knows of any other real estate broker, agent or finder who is entitled to a commission in connection with this Third Amendment. Landlord shall pay Broker a procuring leasing commission per a separate agreement signed February 27, 2020. Landlord agrees to indemnify and defend Tenant against and hold Tenant harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, lawsuits, judgments, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) with respect to any leasing commission, finder’s fee, or equivalent compensation owing to Broker or any party other than Broker on account of any dealings with any real estate broker, agent or finder, occurring by, through or under Landlord in connection with this Third Amendment. Tenant agrees to indemnify and defend Landlord against and hold Landlord harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, lawsuits, judgments, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) with respect to any leasing commission, finder’s fee, or equivalent compensation owing to any party other than Broker on account of any dealings with any real estate broker, agent or finder, occurring by, through or under Tenant in connection with this Third Amendment.

8.    Entire Agreement. All understandings and agreements, oral or written, previously made between the parties hereto pertaining to the subject matter hereof are merged in this Third Amendment, which alone fully and completely expresses the agreement between Landlord and Tenant. No modification, waiver or amendment of this Third Amendment or of any of its conditions or provisions shall be binding upon Landlord unless in writing signed by Landlord.

9.    Authority. Each party to this Third Amendment represents hereby that the person signing this Third Amendment on behalf of such party has the authority to execute and deliver the same. Each provision of this Third Amendment shall extend to and shall bind and inure to the benefit not only of Landlord and Tenant, but also of their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns.

10.    Signatures. The parties hereto consent and agree that this Third Amendment may be signed and/or transmitted by facsimile, e-mail of a .pdf document or using electronic signature technology (e.g., via DocuSign or similar electronic signature technology), and that such signed electronic record shall be valid and as effective to bind the party so signing as a paper copy bearing such party’s handwritten signature. The parties further consent and agree that (1) to the extent a party signs this Third Amendment using electronic signature technology, by clicking “SIGN”, such party is signing this Third Amendment electronically, and (2) the electronic signatures appearing on this Third Amendment shall be treated, for purposes of validity, enforceability and admissibility, the same as handwritten signatures.
