FIFTH AMENDMENT TO LEASE
CONSENT TO ASSIGNMENT
I. PARTIES AND DATE.
This Amendment to Lease and Consent (collectively, the “Amendment”) dated February 28, 2019 is by and among NEWPORT GATEWAY OFFICE LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Landlord”), 5 ARCH GROUP, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Assignor”), and 5 ARCHES, LLC, a California limited liability company (“Assignee” and “Tenant”).
Landlord (as successor in interest to The Irvine Company LLC, a Delaware limited liability company) and Tenant entered into an office space lease dated January 27, 2015, which lease was amended by a First Amendment to Lease dated September 9, 2016 and by a Second Amendment to Lease dated September 30, 2016. On November 17, 2016 Landlord consented to an assignment of lease between Tenant and Assignor, assigning all of Tenant’s rights under the lease to Assignor. Thereafter, the lease was further amended by a Third Amendment to Lease dated November 17, 2016, by a Fourth Amendment to Lease dated May 11, 2018. The lease, as amended by the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Third Amendment, and the Fourth Amendment, is hereinafter referred to as the “Lease.” The premises, as provided in the Lease, consist of 17,791 rentable square feet known as Suite Nos. 490 (“Suite 490”), 950, 960 and 1150 (“Premises”) in the building located at 19800 MacArthur Boulevard, Irvine, California (“Building”).
Assignor desires to assign to Assignee all of Assignor’s right, title and interest in the Lease and Assignee desires to accept such assignment subject to Landlord’s further consent to Assignor’s assignment to Assignee of all Assignor’s right, title and interest in the Lease, and Landlord has agreed to give such consent upon the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.
Landlord and Tenant each further desire to modify the Lease to add approximately 4,409 rentable square feet of space known as Suite No. 1180 on the eleventh floor of the Building (“Suite 1180”), terminate Tenant’s leasing of Suite 490 only, adjust the Basic Rent, and make such other modifications as are set forth in “III. MODIFICATIONS” next below.
Basic Lease Provisions. The Basic Lease Provisions are hereby amended as follows:
Effective as of the Termination Date for Suite 490 (defined below), Item 2 shall be amended by deleting “and Suite No. 490” therefrom. Effective as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, Item 2 shall be amended by adding “and Suite No. 1180” to the Premises.
2. Item 4 is hereby amended by adding the following:
“Estimated Commencement Date for Suite 1180: May 1, 2019”
Effective as of the Termination Date for Suite 490, Item 5 with respect to the Lease Term for Suite 490 is hereby amended to midnight on February 28, 2019.”
Item 5 is hereby amended by adding the following:
“Lease Term for Suite 1180: The Term for Suite 1180 shall expire at midnight on the Expiration Date (i.e., June 30, 2021).”
Effective as of the Termination Date for Suite 490, Tenant shall no longer be obligated to pay Basic Rent for Suite 490 as set forth in Item 6 of the Basic Lease Provisions.
Effective as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, Item 6 shall be amended by adding the following for Suite 1180:
Months of Term
or Period for Suite 1180
Monthly Rate Per Rentable Square Foot for Suite 1180
Monthly Basic Rent for Suite 1180 (rounded to the nearest dollar)
1 to 12

Project Cost Base for Suite 1180: The Project Costs per rentable square foot of Suite 1180 incurred by Landlord and attributable to the twelve month period ending June 30, 2019.”
Effective as of the Termination Date for Suite 490, Item 8 shall be amended by deleting “and Suite 490 comprising approximately 2,124 rentable square feet”.
Effective as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, Item 8 shall be amended by adding “and Suite 1180 comprising approximately 4,409 rentable square feet.”
Item 9 is hereby deleted in its entirety and the following substituted in lieu thereof:
“9. Security Deposit: $72,166.00”
Effective as of the Termination Date for Suite 490, the Parking for Suite 490 as provided in Section III.A.8 of the Fourth Amendment to Lease shall be deleted in its entirety.
Effective as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, Item 11 shall be amended by adding the following:
“Parking for Suite 1180: Tenant shall have the right but not the obligation to utilize up to 13 parking passes for unreserved parking in connection with Tenant’s leasing of Suite 1180 in accordance with the provisions set forth in Exhibit F to this Lease.”
B. Commencement Date. As used herein, the “Commencement Date for Suite 1180” shall occur on the earlier of (a) the date Suite 1180 is deemed ready for occupancy as set forth below, or (b) the date Tenant commences its business activities within Suite 1180. Promptly following request by Landlord, the parties shall memorialize on a form provided by Landlord (the “Suite 1180 Commencement Memorandum”) the actual Commencement Date for Suite 1180; should Tenant fail to execute and return the Suite 1180 Commencement Memorandum to Landlord within 5 business days (or provide specific written objections thereto within that period), then Landlord’s determination of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180 as set forth in the Suite 1180 Commencement Memorandum shall be conclusive. Suite 1180 shall be deemed “ready for occupancy” if and when Landlord, to the extent applicable, (i) has substantially completed all the work required to be completed by Landlord pursuant to the Work Letter (if any) attached to this Amendment but for minor punch list matters, and has obtained the requisite governmental approvals for Tenant’s occupancy in connection with such work, (ii) has provided reasonable access to Suite 1180 for Tenant so that Suite 1180 may be used without unreasonable interference, and (iii) has put into operation all building services required to be provided by Landlord under the Lease and essential for the use of Suite 1180 by Tenant.
C. Delay in Possession. If Landlord, for any reason whatsoever, cannot deliver possession of Suite 1180 to Tenant on or before the Estimated Commencement Date for Suite 1180 set forth in Section III.A.2 above, this Amendment shall not be void or voidable nor shall Landlord be liable to Tenant for any resulting loss or damage. However, Tenant shall not be liable for any rent for Suite 1180 until the Commencement Date for Suite 1180 occurs as provided in Section III.B above, except that if Landlord’s failure to substantially complete all work required of Landlord pursuant to Section III.B(i) above is attributable to any action or inaction by Tenant (including without limitation any Tenant Delay described in the Work Letter, if any, attached to this Amendment), then Suite 1180 shall be deemed ready for occupancy, and Landlord shall be entitled to full performance by Tenant (including the payment of rent), as of the date Landlord would have been able to substantially complete such work and deliver Suite 1180 to Tenant but for Tenant’s delay(s).
D. Security Deposit and First Month’s Rent. Concurrently with Tenant’s delivery of this Amendment, Tenant shall deliver the sum of (a) $17,751.00 to Landlord, which sum shall be added to the Security Deposit presently being held by Landlord in accordance with Section 4.3 of the Lease, and (b) $14,770.00 (i.e., the initial installment of 1 full month of Basic Rent for Suite 1180). Effective as of the date of this Amendment, Assignor and Tenant hereby authorize Landlord to transfer $7,453.00 of the Security Deposit presently being held by Landlord pursuant to Section 4.3 of the Lease, and apply such funds to the security deposit required by Landlord under the new lease for Suite 490 between Landlord and Assignor.
E. Operating Expenses. Notwithstanding any contrary provision in the Lease, Landlord hereby agrees that Tenant shall not be obligated to pay Landlord for Operating Expenses accruing in connection with Suite 1180 during the 12 month period commencing as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180.
F. Signage. Landlord, at its sole cost and expense, shall affix and maintain a sign (restricted solely to Tenant’s name as set forth herein) adjacent to the entry door of Suite 1180, and shall add an identification strip in the lobby directory of the Building. Any subsequent changes to that initial signage shall be made at Tenant’s expense in accordance with Section 5.2 of the Lease.
G. Floor Plan of Premises. Effective as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, Exhibit A-3 attached to this Amendment shall be added to Exhibit A of the Lease.
H. Parking. Notwithstanding any contrary provision in the Lease, effective as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, Tenant may purchase up to 13 additional Parking Passes for unreserved parking spaces in connection with its leasing of Suite 1180 (as reflected in Section III.A.8 of this Amendment) (the “Suite 1180 Parking Passes”). Landlord agrees that Tenant may convert up to 2 of the Suite 1180 Parking Passes to reserved stalls by providing written notice of such election to Landlord prior to the Commencement Date for Suite1180 (the “Suite 1180 Converted Stalls”). Tenant acknowledges that if such written notice of election is not delivered to Landlord prior to the Commencement Date for Suite 1180, then the conversion of the Suite 1180 Parking Passes to reserved stalls shall be subject to the month to month availability of such reserved stalls as determined by Landlord and the reserved stalls shall be at Landlord’s scheduled rates. Notwithstanding any contrary provision in Exhibit F to the Lease but subject to the foregoing, during the period commencing as of the Commencement Date for Suite 1180 and ending June 30, 2021, the monthly parking charges for the Suite 1180 Parking Passes shall be $55.00 per month and, if applicable, shall be $140.00 per Suite 1180 Converted Stall per month. From and after July 1, 2021, the parking charges for the Suite 1180 Parking Passes and, if applicable, Suite 1180 Converted Stalls shall be at Landlord’s scheduled parking charges from time to time.
I. Tenant Improvements. Landlord hereby agrees to complete the Tenant Improvements for Suite 1180 in accordance with the provisions of Exhibit X, Work Letter, attached hereto.
J. Termination of Suite 490. Landlord and Tenant agree that the rights and obligations of the parties under the Lease with respect to Suite 490 shall terminate in their entirety, effective as of midnight on February 28, 2019 (“Termination Date for Suite 490”), provided that such termination shall not relieve Tenant of (a) any accrued obligation or liability under the Lease with respect to Suite 490 as of said termination date, or (b) any obligation under the Lease with respect to Suite 490 which was reasonably intended to survive the expiration or termination thereof. Tenant understands and agrees that it shall completely vacate Suite 490 by midnight on February 28, 2019, and shall remove all property therefrom in accordance with the provisions of Section 15.2 of the Lease, except as otherwise agreed by Assignor under the terms of the new lease for Suite 490 between Landlord and Assignor. Effective as of the Termination Date for Suite 490, Exhibit A showing Suite 490 shall be deleted in its entirety.

The parties shall mutually agree on the arrangements for the time and manner of the CASp inspection, the payment of the fee for the CASp inspection, and the cost of making any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction related accessibility standards within the premises."
