W I T N E S S E T H :

WHEREAS, Sublandlord and Subtenant are parties to that certain Office Sublease dated March 24, 2021 (the “Original Sublease”; the Original Sublease, as amended by this Amendment, the “Sublease”), for certain premises in the building located at 1600 Sunflower Avenue, Costa Mesa, California 92626 (the “Building”), consisting of approximately 17,000 rentable square feet of space on the second floor of the Building known as Suite 100 (the “Original Sublease Premises”); and

WHEREAS, Sublandlord has agreed to lease additional premises to Subtenant and Subtenant has agreed to lease from Sublandlord such additional premises; and

WHEREAS, Sublandlord and Subtenant desire to evidence such expansion of the Original Sublease Premises and to amend certain other terms and conditions of the Original Sublease by means of this Amendment.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of Ten and No/100 Dollars ($10.00), the mutual covenants contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt, adequacy and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Original Sublease is hereby amended and the parties hereto do hereby agree as follows:

1.    Recitals; Capitalized Terms. The recitals set forth herein above are incorporated herein as if restated in their entireties. All capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Original Sublease.

2.    Expansion; Grant of Expansion Space. Subject to Prime Landlord’s consent to this Amendment, commencing upon the Amendment Effective Date (the “Expansion Date”), Sublandlord agrees to lease to Subtenant and Subtenant agrees to lease from Sublandlord, for the entire Sublease Term, and subject to and in accordance with the terms of the Sublease, as amended by this Amendment, an additional 3,594 rentable square feet of space known as Suite 120 as shown on Exhibit A attached hereto and by this reference made a part hereof (the “Expansion Space”). As of the Expansion Date: (a) the Expansion Space shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions of the Sublease for the entire Sublease Term; (b) all references in the Sublease to the “Sublease Premises” shall be deemed to include the Original Sublease Premises and the Expansion Space; (c) the total rentable square feet of space leased to Subtenant pursuant to the Sublease shall be 20,594 rentable square feet; and (d) the Sublease Premises, as so expanded, shall be known together as Suite 100. If Sublandlord is delayed in delivering possession of the Expansion Space due to any reason, such delay shall not be a default by Sublandlord, render the Sublease void or voidable, or otherwise render Sublandlord liable for damages.

3.    Base Rent. From and after the Expansion Date, Base Rent with respect to the Sublease Premises, including the Expansion Space, shall be as follows:



Base Rent

Expansion Date – 12/30/2022

In the event of a monetary default by Subtenant under this Sublease in the form of a failure to pay Base Rent or any other amounts due under this Sublease during the Sublease Term beyond any applicable notice and cure periods, such Abatement shall be amortized on a straight-line basis and any unamortized amounts of the Abatement at the time of default shall become immediately due and payable. Further, should Subtenant be in default beyond any applicable notice and cure periods under this Sublease at the time any installment of the Abatement is otherwise due to be applied, such installment of the Abatement will not be provided until the default has been cured by Subtenant. Other than as set forth in this paragraph, Subtenant shall pay any and all other Base Rent and Additional Rent or any sum of money due of Subtenant under this Sublease during the Abatement Period.

4.    Security Deposit. As a further inducement for Sublandlord to enter into this Amendment, contemporaneously with the execution of this Amendment by Subtenant, Subtenant shall deposit with Sublandlord the amount of Four Thousand Three Hundred Twelve and 80/100 Dollars ($4,312.80), which shall be added to Subtenant’s current security deposit of Twenty Thousand Four Hundred and No/100 Dollars ($20,400.00) for a total security deposit of Twenty-Four Thousand Seven Hundred Twelve and 80/100 Dollars ($24,712.80) (the “Security Deposit”) to be held and applied by Sublandlord in accordance with the terms of Article V of the Original Sublease. All other terms and conditions of the Sublease shall continue to apply to the Security Deposit, as so increased.

5.    Acceptance of Sublease Premises. Subtenant hereby accepts the Sublease Premises, as expanded herein, in its “AS IS,” “WHERE IS” condition, WITH ALL FAULTS, and without any representations or warranties (express or implied) whatsoever, during the Sublease Term and acknowledges and agrees Sublandlord shall have no obligation to construct any tenant improvements to the Sublease Premises, or make any alterations or additions thereto, and Sublandlord shall have no obligation to provide any tenant improvement allowance, credit, set-off, or other concession to Subtenant.

conjunction with any such claim or claims of any other broker or brokers claiming to have interested Subtenant in the Building, the Original Sublease Premises or the Expansion Space or claiming to have caused Subtenant to enter into this Amendment.
