TENANT WORK LETTER
This Tenant Work Letter (Tenant Work Letter) sets forth the terms and conditions relating to the construction of improvements for the Premises. All references in this Tenant Work Letter to the Lease shall mean the relevant portions of the Lease to which this Tenant Work Letter is attached as Exhibit C-2. This Tenant Work Letter supersedes and replaces the original Exhibit C and Exhibit C-1 attached to the Lease. Any references in this Tenant Work Letter to the Amendment shall mean the First Amendment to Lease dated December 30, 2020, by and between Landlord and Tenant.
BASE, SHELL AND CORE
Landlord has previously constructed the base, shell, and core (i) of the Premises and (ii) of the floor(s) of the Building on which the Premises are located (collectively, the Original Base, Shell, and Core), and subject to correction of latent defects subsequently discovered, Tenant accepted the Base, Shell and Core in its current As-Is condition existing as of the date of the Lease and the Commencement Date except as otherwise provided in the Lease and this Tenant Work Letter. As used in this Tenant Work Letter, a latent defect is a construction defect in the Base, Shell and Core existing on the date of the Amendment that is not apparent upon a reasonably diligent inspection of the Premises. At Tenants direction, certain demolition and shell construction work was undertaken in the Premises prior to the execution and delivery of the Amendment (the Preliminary Construction) the cost of which was paid out of the Tenant Improvement Allowance provided in Exhibit C of the Lease (the Preliminary Construction Costs). The Preliminary Construction Costs are described in more detail in the March 20, 2019, correspondence from Harvest Properties to Tenant. The amount of the Preliminary Construction Costs was $564,170.72 (the Preliminary Construction Costs Amount). Any reference in this Tenant Work Letter to the Base, Shell, and Core shall mean the Original Base, Shell, and Core as modified by the Preliminary Construction and in its current As-Is condition existing as of the date of the Amendment, subject to latent defects subsequently discovered. Except for the Tenant Improvement Allowance set forth below, Landlord shall not be obligated to make or pay for any alterations or improvements to the Premises, the Building or the Project. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Landlord covenants to correct, at its sole cost and not as an Operating Expense payable by Tenant, any failure of the existing exterior path of travel for the Premises to comply with current codes, including without limitation the Americans with Disabilities Act, as reasonably interpreted by Landlords architect as of the date of the Lease, to the extent such correction is reasonably necessary in order to obtain a building permit or a certificate of occupancy for the Tenant Improvements in the Premises; provided that nothing contained herein shall be deemed to prohibit Landlord from obtaining a variance or relying upon a grandfathered right in order to achieve compliance with those codes. Five existing doors on the Premises are currently non-ADA compliant. Landlord, at its cost, shall make such existing doors ADA code compliant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall have the right to contest any alleged violation in good faith (provided it does not materially delay completion of
construction of the Tenant Improvements), including, without limitation, the right to apply for and obtain a waiver or deferment of compliance, the right to assert any and all defenses allowed by law, and the right to appeal any decisions, judgments or rulings to the fullest extent permitted by law, and Landlords obligation to perform work or take such other action to cure a violation under this Section shall apply after the exhaustion of any and all rights to appeal or contest.
2.1 Tenant Improvement Allowance. Tenant shall be entitled to a one-time tenant improvement allowance (the Tenant Improvement Allowance) in the amount of $60.00 per rentable square foot of the Premises (i.e., $3,018,300.00, based on 50,305 rentable square feet in the Premises), for the costs relating to the design, permitting, installation and construction of Tenants improvements which are permanently affixed to the Premises (the Tenant Improvements). Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Tenant Work Letter, Landlord shall not be obligated to make disbursements pursuant to this Tenant Work Letter in a total amount which exceeds the Tenant Improvement Allowance. Tenant shall not be entitled to receive any cash payment or credit against Rent or otherwise for any portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance which is not used to pay for the Tenant Improvement Allowance Items (as such term is defined below). In no event shall the Tenant Improvement Allowance be used for purposes of constructing improvements in the Premises for purposes of offering space for sublease or for the benefit of a subtenant. A portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance has already been used to pay for the Preliminary Construction Costs in the Preliminary Construction Costs Amount and, accordingly, is not available for disbursement under this Exhibit C-2. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Tenant Work Letter, Tenant shall expend the Tenant Improvement Allowance for the improvement of the entire Premises to substantially the same level of improvement (which may include open plan design so long as the applicable open plan designed space includes, at a minimum, finished floor, ceilings, lighting and HVAC) as shown on the Final Preliminary Plan (as defined below). Since the Preliminary Construction, Landlord has incurred the Tenant Improvement Allowance Items (as defined below) outlined on Exhibit C-4, which shall be payable out of the Tenant Improvement Allowance.
2.2 Disbursement of the Tenant Improvement Allowance.
2.2.1 Tenant Improvement Allowance Items. Except as otherwise set forth in this Tenant Work Letter, the Tenant Improvement Allowance only for the following items and costs (collectively, the Tenant Improvement Allowance Items):

220.127.116.11 The cost of any changes in the Base, Shell and Core when such changes are required by the Construction Drawings (including if such changes are due to the fact that such work is prepared on an unoccupied basis), such cost to include all direct architectural and/or engineering fees and expenses incurred in connection therewith; provided that no costs that Landlord is to pay at its sole cost pursuant to Section 1 of this Tenant Work Letter shall be included;
18.104.22.168 The cost of any changes to the Construction Drawings or Tenant Improvements required by any applicable laws;

2.2.2 Disbursement of Tenant Improvement Allowance. Subject to Section 2.1 above, during the construction of the Tenant Improvements, Landlord shall make monthly disbursements of the Tenant Improvement Allowance for Tenant Improvement Allowance Items for the benefit of Tenant and shall authorize the release of monies for the benefit of Tenant as follows:
18.104.22.168 Monthly Disbursements. Contractor shall be required to deliver its application for payment to Tenant and Architect by the fifth (5th) day of the month (but not on a Friday or non-business day). The subject application for payment shall be reviewed and approved by the Architect and Tenant within not more than fifteen (15) days after receipt, at
which time Tenant shall cause Architect to deliver to Landlord: (i) a request for payment of the Contractor, as that term is defined in Section 4.1 below, approved by Tenant, using a form provided by Landlord to Tenant prior to the execution of the Amendment, which shall include the AIA G702/G703 form (and, when applicable, the AIA G701 form for any change orders), showing the schedule, by trade, of percentage of completion of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises, detailing the portion of the work completed and the portion not completed, and demonstrating that the relationship between the cost of the work completed and the cost of the work to be completed complies with the terms of the Final Costs Statement, as that term is defined in Section 4.2.1 below; (ii) invoices from (1) the Contractor, (2) all other Tenants Agents, as that term is defined in Section 4.1 below, who submit bills for payment for labor rendered and materials delivered to the Premises in excess of $10,000.00 (collectively, the Major Billing Parties), and (3) all professional service providers (for example, the Architect, engineers and construction managers) (the Service Providers); (iii) executed mechanics lien releases from the Contractor, all of the Major Billing Parties and all of the Service Providers (except any Service Providers that Tenant establishes to Landlords reasonable satisfaction do not have mechanics lien rights) with respect to the work covered by the current request for payment which shall comply with the appropriate provisions, as reasonably determined by Landlord, of California Civil Code Sections 8132 and 8136; (iv) executed unconditional mechanics lien releases from the Contractor, all of the Major Billing Parties and all of the Service Providers (except any Service Providers that Tenant establishes to Landlords reasonable satisfaction do not have mechanics lien rights) with respect to the work covered by the prior request for payment which shall comply with the appropriate provisions, as reasonably determined by Landlord, of California Civil Code Sections 8134 and 8138; (v) written evidence that Tenant has paid the portion of the prior request for payment that was not paid by Landlord as provided below (which written evidence may be in the form of the unconditional lien release described in the immediately preceding Subsection (iv) for such prior request for payment; and (vi) all other reasonable and customary information as to the current status of construction and payment of the costs thereof reasonably requested by Landlord. Tenants request for payment shall be deemed Tenants acceptance and approval of the work furnished and/or the materials supplied as set forth in Tenants payment request. Within thirty (30) days after Tenants timely delivery to Landlord of the items described in clauses (i) through (v), Landlord shall deliver a check to Tenant made jointly payable to Contractor or a Service Provider, as applicable, and Tenant in payment of the lesser of (A) Landlords Percentage Share (as defined below) of the amounts so requested by Tenant, as set forth in this Section 22.214.171.124, above, less Landlords Percentage Share of a ten percent (10%) retention (the aggregate amount of such retentions to be known as the Final Retention), and (B) the balance of any remaining available portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance (not including the Final Retention), provided that Landlord does not dispute any request for payment based on non-compliance of any work with the Approved Working Drawings, or due to any substandard work, or for any other reason. To the extent a payment request already reflects a 10% retention, then so long as the undisbursed portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance exceeds the Final Retention (i.e., an amount equal to 10% of the Tenant Improvement Allowance), Landlord agrees not to withhold the retention from the payment of the payment request. At such time as Landlord has made disbursements under this Section 126.96.36.199 in an amount equal to 90% of the Tenant Improvement Allowance, the remaining undisbursed portion of the Tenant Improvement Allowance shall be held as the Final Retention and disbursed pursuant to Section 188.8.131.52. For purposes of this Work Letter, Landlords Percentage Share
shall be calculated by dividing the amount of the Tenant Improvement Allowance by the estimated budget for the Tenant Improvements (including any change orders) as prepared by Tenant and, reasonably approved by Landlord from time to time, and shall in no event exceed one hundred percent (100%). No later than the earlier of (a) the date Tenant submits its next request for payment, and (b) thirty-five (35) days after Tenants delivery to Landlord of the items described in clauses (i) through (vi), Tenant shall pay the balance of the amounts requested by Tenant (less the remaining balance of the retention), and shall provide Landlord with written evidence of that payment, which evidence may be in the form of the unconditional lien release referred to in Subsection 184.108.40.206.(iv) relating to such payment. Landlords payment of such amounts shall not be deemed Landlords approval or acceptance of the work furnished or materials supplied as set forth in Tenants payment request.
220.127.116.11 Final Retention. Subject to the provisions of this Tenant Work Letter, a check for the Final Retention payable jointly to Tenant and Contractor shall be delivered by Landlord to Tenant following the completion of construction of the Premises, provided that (i) Tenant delivers to Landlord properly executed mechanics lien releases in compliance with both California Civil Code Section 8134 and either Section 8136 or Section 8138, and (ii) Landlord has determined that no substandard work exists which adversely affects the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, life-safety or other systems of the Building, the curtain wall of the Building, the structure or exterior appearance of the Building, or any other tenants use of such other tenants leased premises in the Building.
18.104.22.168 Other Terms. Landlord shall only be obligated to make disbursements from the Tenant Improvement Allowance to the extent costs are incurred by Tenant for Tenant Improvement Allowance Items.
2.3 Specifications for Building Standard Components. Landlord has established specifications as generally described in Rider Exhibit B- Owners Project Criteria-Basis of Design that is included in the Landlord Approved Form of Construction Contract (as defined below) (referred to interchangeably as Rider Exhibit B or Specifications) for certain Building standard components to be used in the construction of the Tenant Improvements in the Premises (the Specifications), which Specifications have been received by Tenant. Tenant acknowledges that the Specifications are not an all-inclusive list of specifications and the specifications of items not specifically addressed in Rider Exhibit B are subject to Landlords approval. Unless otherwise agreed to by Landlord, the Tenant Improvements shall comply with the Specifications. Landlord may make reasonable changes to the Specifications from time to time that do not have an impact on the timing, substance or cost of construction of the Tenant Improvements. Changes to Specifications mandated by applicable law shall be deemed reasonable.
2.4 Additional Allowance. If the costs to design, permit, install and construct the Tenant Improvements exceed the initial Tenant Improvement Allowance amount stated in Section 2.1 above, Tenant shall have the option, exercisable upon written notice to Landlord within thirty (30) days after Tenants delivery of the Final Costs Statement pursuant to Section 4.2 below, to receive an additional Tenant improvement allowance to pay for such excess costs (the Additional Allowance) in the amount of up to, but no more than, $60.00 per rentable
square foot of the Premises. If Tenant exercises the option for the Additional Allowance, then the term Tenant Improvement Allowance as used in this Tenant Work Letter shall mean and refer to the initial Tenant Improvement Allowance amount stated in Section 2.1 above plus the Additional Allowance. As consideration for Landlord providing such Additional Allowance to Tenant, the amount of the Additional Allowance provided by Landlord shall be repaid by Tenant to Landlord amortized based upon equal monthly payments of principal amortization and interest on a monthly basis over the initial Term at an interest rate of eight percent (8%) per annum, and each such monthly payment of principal amortization and interest (collectively, the Amortization Rent) shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord commencing on the first (1st) day of the Term. In the event the Lease shall terminate for any reason, including, without limitation, as a result of a default by Tenant under the terms of the Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period, Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the unamortized balance of the Additional Allowance which has not been paid by Tenant to Landlord as of the termination date of the Lease pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section shall become immediately due and payable as unpaid rent which has been earned as of such termination date. In no event shall the Amortization Rent be abated for any reason whatsoever.
3.1 Selection of Architect/Construction Drawings. Tenant shall retain Form4 Architecture, Inc., or another architect/space planner designated by Tenant and reasonably approved by Landlord (the Architect) to prepare the architectural and structural elements of the Construction Drawings, as that term is defined in this Section 3.1. The Contractor shall prepare all plans and engineering working drawings relating to the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, life safety, and sprinkler work in connection with the Tenant Improvements on a design-build basis (the MEP Design-Build Drawings). The plans and drawings to be prepared by Architect and the Contractor hereunder shall be known collectively as the Construction Drawings. All Construction Drawings shall be in compliance with the Rider Exhibit B. Notwithstanding that any Construction Drawings are reviewed by Landlord or its space planner, architect, engineers and consultants, and notwithstanding any advice or assistance which may be rendered to Tenant by Landlord or its space planner, architect, engineers and consultants, Landlord shall have no liability whatsoever in connection therewith and shall not be responsible for any omissions or errors contained in the Construction Drawings.
3.2 Final Preliminary Plan. Landlord and Tenant hereby approve the plans described in Exhibit C-3 attached hereto (the Final Preliminary Plan).
3.3 Final Working Drawings. Based on the Final Preliminary Plan, Tenant shall cause the Architect and Contractor to complete the architectural and engineering drawings for the Tenant Improvements, and Architect shall compile a fully coordinated set of architectural and MEP Design-Build Drawings in a form which is complete to allow subcontractors to bid on the work and to obtain all applicable permits (collectively, the Final Working Drawings) and shall submit the same to Landlord for Landlords approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. The Final Working Drawings shall incorporate modifications to the Final Preliminary Plan as necessary to comply with the floor load and other structural and system requirements of
the Building. To the extent that the finishes and specifications are not completely set forth in the Final Preliminary Plan or the Approved Working Drawings for any portion of the Tenant Improvements depicted thereon, the actual specifications and finish work shall be in accordance with the Specifications. Tenant shall supply Landlord with four (4) copies signed by Tenant of such Final Working Drawings. Landlord shall advise Tenant within five (5) business days after Landlords receipt of the Final Working Drawings for the Premises if the same is unsatisfactory or incomplete in any respect. If Tenant is so advised, Tenant shall promptly (i) revise the Final Working Drawings in accordance with such review and any disapproval of Landlord in connection therewith, and (ii) deliver such revised Final Working Drawings to Landlord. Landlord and Tenant shall continue such process until Landlord has reasonably approved the Final Working Drawings.
3.4 Approved Working Drawings. The Final Working Drawings shall be approved by Landlord (the Approved Working Drawings) prior to the commencement of the construction of the Tenant Improvements. After approval by Landlord of the Final Working Drawings, Tenant shall promptly submit the same to the appropriate governmental authorities for all applicable building permits. Tenant hereby agrees that neither Landlord nor Landlords consultants shall be responsible for obtaining any building permit or certificate of occupancy for the Premises and that obtaining the same shall be Tenants responsibility; provided, however, that Landlord shall cooperate with Tenant in executing permit applications and performing other ministerial acts reasonably necessary to enable Tenant to obtain any such permit or certificate of occupancy. No changes, modifications or alterations in the Approved Working Drawings may be made without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE TENANT IMPROVEMENTS
4.1 Contractor and Tenants Agents. Tenant shall use CP Construction (the Contractor) for the construction of the Tenant Improvements. As used in this Tenant Work Letter, the term Tenants Agents means, collectively, the Contractor and all subcontractors, laborers, materialmen, and suppliers used by Tenant. In any event, Tenant must contract with Landlords base building subcontractors for any fire alarm, life safety, core HVAC control work in the Premises or any work on the roof. Landlords base building subcontractors are listed on Exhibit C-5 attached hereto. Tenant shall be responsible for causing the Contractor and Tenants Agents to preserve labor harmony and to manage and resolve all labor disputes resulting from the performance of the Tenant Improvement work.
4.2 Construction of Tenant Improvements by Tenants Agents.

Landlord has approved the Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Contractor where the basis for payment is a Stipulated Sum, dated July 24, 2020, which identified Landlord as the Owner (the Landlord Approved Form of Construction Contract).
