1.     Landlord’s Work. Landlord will make certain improvements to the Premises (the “Landlord’s Work”) as set forth on that certain proposal prepared by Gen-Con, Proposal No. E19-01 Rev. 2 dated February 22, 2019 (the “Plan”) attached hereto as Schedule 1 and previously approved by Tenant. For the avoidance of doubt, except for increased costs of Landlord’s Work above what’s shown on the Plan resulting from a Tenant Delay or TI Changes, all Landlord’s Work shall be completed at Landlord’s sole cost and expense without any Tenant reimbursement (regardless of any notations in the Plan indicating otherwise). Should said Plan or any part of Landlord’s Work require the preparation or development of additional plans or specifications, then Tenant shall have five (5) business days from Landlord’s submission of such additional plans or specifications to Tenant to approve or disapprove the same. Tenant’s failure to so approve or disapprove within such five (5) business day period shall constitute a Tenant Delay (as defined herein) and, at Landlord’s election, be deemed Tenant’s approval thereof. Tenant’s disapproval of such plans and specifications shall specifically identify the nature of such disapproval. Landlord shall then have such plans and specifications amended to incorporate those items specified in Tenant’s disapproval to which Landlord reasonably agrees. Tenant’s approval of such plans and specifications shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, provided such plans and specifications are consistent with the Plan attached hereto as Schedule 1. Landlord and Tenant shall diligently work together in good faith to agree upon such plans and specifications, it being agreed that Tenant shall have no right to request that such plans and specifications be revised to reflect any work which is not contemplated on Schedule 1 attached hereto except pursuant to Section 4 below. Upon approval, or deemed approval, of such additional plans and specifications, the same shall be deemed the “Plan” for the purposes of this Work Letter. Except as may be otherwise shown on the Plan, Landlord shall perform Landlord’s Work using building standard materials, quantities and procedures then in use by Landlord.


2.     Substantial Completion. “Substantial Completion” or “Substantially Complete” means that, Landlord’s Work has been sufficiently completed, as certified by Landlord’s general contractor or architect, such that the Premises is suitable for, and may be legally used for its intended purpose (which shall include, if required by applicable law, obtaining a final certificate of occupancy), notwithstanding any minor or insubstantial details of construction, decoration or mechanical adjustment that remain to be performed and that does not materially impact Tenant’s ability to use the Expansion Premises for the intended use (“Punch List Items”). Landlord shall complete all Punch List Items promptly following notice thereof from Tenant, but in no event later than thirty (30) days’ notice thereof from Tenant; provided, however, that except to the extent to which Tenant shall have given Landlord notice of any Punch List Items not later than two (2) weeks after the Expansion Date, Tenant shall be deemed conclusively to have approved the completion of Landlord’s Work and Tenant shall have no claim that Landlord has failed to perform any of Landlord’s Work required under this Work Letter. Landlord will use commercially reasonable efforts to Substantially Complete Landlord’s Work on or before the date that is eight (8) weeks following the Effective Date of this Second Amendment.





If there is a delay in the Substantial Completion of the Landlord’s Work for any reason neither Landlord, nor the managing or leasing agent of the Building, nor any of their respective agents, partners or employees, shall have any liability to Tenant in connection with such delay, nor shall the Lease be affected in any way except that the Expansion Date shall not occur until Landlord’s Work is Substantially Complete. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any language of the Lease to the contrary, if Landlord’s Work is delayed by a Tenant Delay (as defined below) then Tenant shall begin paying Rent as required under the Lease as of the date the Expansion Date would have occurred but for such Tenant Delay. 


3.     Tenant Delay. In addition  to any other occurrence defined in the Lease or in this Work Letter as Tenant Delay, “Tenant Delay” means the occurrence of any one or more of the following which cause an actual, demonstrated delay in the completion of Landlord’s Work: (i) Tenant is Delinquent (as hereafter defined) in submitting to Landlord any information, authorization or approvals requested by Landlord in connection with the performance of Landlord’s Work; (ii) the performance or completion of any work or activity by a party employed by Tenant, including any of Tenant’s employees, agents, contractors, subcontractors and materialmen in the Expansion Premises; (iii) any postponements or delays requested by Tenant and agreed to by Landlord regarding the completion of the Landlord’s Work; (iv) any error in Landlord’s Work caused or related to any act or omission by Tenant or its employees or agents; (v) the performance of any TI Changes (as defined below); or (vi) any other act or omission of the Tenant which causes a delay in the completion of Landlord’s Work. Unless a different time period is specified in this Work Letter, for the purposes of this Section, the term “Delinquent” shall mean that the action or communication required of Tenant pursuant to this Work Letter is not taken within three (3) business days following request by Landlord which may be made by email to Tenant’s representative at _____________.


4.     Changes to Landlord’s Work. Tenant will have no right to make any changes (“TI Changes”) to the Plan or Landlord’s Work without the prior written consent of Landlord and the execution by Landlord and Tenant of a written change order which specifies (i) the nature of the TI Changes and (ii) an estimate of the cost to Tenant as a result of such TI Changes. Tenant shall be solely responsible for the costs of all TI Changes including a construction management fee of three percent (3%) of the total cost of all TI Changes, and Tenant shall pay such actual, out of pocket, documented costs as Additional Rent within ten (10) business days following receipt of Landlord’s invoice.


5.     Warranty of Landlord’s Work. Landlord hereby agrees that any repairs or replacements of any portion of the Landlord’s Work required prior to the date that is one (1) year after Substantial Completion thereof shall be made by Landlord, at Landlord’s sole cost and expense, not to be passed through to Tenant. In addition, Landlord hereby agrees to obtain all customary warranties for applicable component parts of the Landlord’s Work (for example, equipment), and to the extent any replacements, repairs or maintenance are required thereto at any time prior to the expiration of such warranties, Landlord agrees to use all commercially reasonable efforts to enforce the same for the benefit of Tenant (or if such replacement, repair or maintenance item is strictly Tenant’s obligation pursuant to the terms of the Lease, in lieu thereof, to the extent assignable pursuant to the terms of such warranty, Landlord may elect to assign such warranty(ies) to Tenant so that Tenant may bring a claim against such warranty on its own behalf).
