WHEREAS, Tenant desires to extend the Term of the Lease for an additional period; and WHEREAS, Landlord is willing to extend the Term of the lease for an additional period,
upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants herein reserved and contained, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Landlord and Tenant hereby agree as follows:
Recitals; Capitalized Terms. The foregoing recitals are hereby incorporated by reference. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them as set forth in the Lease.
Extension of Term. The Term of the Lease is hereby extended for an additional term commencing as of April 1, 2021, and expiring as of October 31, 2025 (the “Additional Term”). The Additional Term shall be on all of the terms and conditions of the Lease immediately preceding the Additional Term, except as expressly set forth in this First Amendment. Tenant hereby accepts the Premises in their "as is", "where is" condition on the Execution Date, with all faults, and without representations or warranties from Landlord of any kind whatsoever. Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord has no obligation to perform any work or to provide any other concession with respect to the Premises in connection with the extension of the Term for the Additional Term. The foregoing shall not limit any obligations of Landlord currently existing under the Lease including, without limitation, Article 10 thereof.
Additional Term Base Rent and Operating Costs andTaxes.
Base Rent for the Additional Term shall be paid in equal monthly installments in accordance with the following schedule in advance and otherwise in accordance with the terms of the Lease:
Annual Base Rent
Tenant shall continue to pay Tenant’s Share of Operating Costs and Tenant’s Share of Taxes during the Additional Term in accordance with Sections 5.2(f) and 5.3(c) of the Lease. Further, Tenant shall continue to pay all charges for electricity, gas, water and all other utilities and services furnished to the Premises and any equipment exclusively serving the Premises during the Additional Term in accordance with Sections 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3 of the Lease.
Provided that the following conditions are satisfied (the “Extension Conditions”), which Extension Conditions may be waived by Landlord in its sole discretion, (i) Tenant, an Affiliated Entity (hereinafter defined) and/or a Successor (hereinafter defined) is/are then occupying one hundred percent (100%) of the Premises; and (ii) no Event of Default nor an event which, with the passage of time and/or the giving of notice would constitute an Event of Default has occurred (1) as of the date of the Extension Notice (hereinafter defined), and (2) at the commencement of the applicable Extension Term (hereinafter defined), Tenant shall have the option (the “InitialExtension Option”) to extend the Term for one (1) additional term of three (3) years and two (2) months (the “FirstExtensionTerm”), commencing as of November 1, 2025 and expiring on December 31, 2028.
Provided that the Extension Conditions are satisfied or waived by Landlord in its sole discretion, and provided further that Tenant has timely and properly exercised the Initial Extension Option pursuant to Section 4(a) above, Tenant shall have the option to extend the Term for one (1) additional term of five (5) years, commencing as of the expiration of the First Extension Term (the “Second Extension Term”; and together with the First Extension Term, each an “ExtensionTerm”).
Tenant must exercise each option to extend, if at all, by giving Landlord written notice (the “Extension Notice”) (i) on or before January 31, 2025, time being of theessence, with respect to the Initial Extension Option and (ii) on or before December 31, 2027 with respect to the option to extend for the Second Extension Term. Upon the timely giving of such Extension Notice, the Term shall be deemed extended upon all of the terms and conditions of this Lease, except that (A) Base Rent during each Extension Term shall be calculated in accordance with this Section 4, (B) Landlord shall have no obligation to construct or renovate the Premises, and (C) Tenant shall have one (1) fewer option to extend the Term. If Tenant fails to give timely notice, as aforesaid, Tenant shall have no further right to extend the Term. Notwithstanding the fact that Tenant’s proper and timely
exercise of such option to extend the Term shall be self-executing, the parties shall promptly execute a lease amendment reflecting such Extension Term after Tenant exercises such option. The execution of such lease amendment shall not be deemed to waive any of the conditions to Tenant’s exercise of its rights under this Section 4.
The Base Rent during each Extension Term (the “Extension Term Base Rent”) shall be determined in accordance with the process described hereafter. Extension Term Base Rent shall be the greater of (i) Base Rent for the last Rent Year of the prior Term, or (ii) the fair market rental value of the Premises then demised to Tenant as of the commencement of the applicable Extension Term as determined in accordance with the process described below, for renewals of combination laboratory and office space in the Lexington/Waltham submarket (the “Market Area”) of equivalent quality, amenities, improvements, size, utility and location, with the length of the Extension Term, the credit standing of Tenant and all other relevant factors to be taken into account. Within thirty
(30) days after receipt of the Extension Notice, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant written notice of its determination of the Extension Term Base Rent for the applicable Extension Term. Tenant shall, within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice, notify Landlord in writing whether Tenant accepts or rejects Landlord’s determination of the Extension Term Base Rent (“Tenant’s Response Notice”). If Tenant fails timely to deliver Tenant’s Response Notice, Landlord’s determination of the Extension Term Base Rent shall be binding on Tenant.
If, and only if, Tenant’s Response Notice is timely delivered to Landlord and indicates both that Tenant rejects Landlord’s determination of the Extension Term Base Rent and desires to submit the matter to arbitration, then the Extension Term Base Rent shall be determined in accordance with the procedure set forth in this Section 4(e). In such event, within ten (10) business days after receipt by Landlord of Tenant’s Response Notice indicating Tenant’s desire to submit the determination of the Extension Term Base Rent to arbitration, Tenant and Landlord shall each notify the other, in writing, of their respective selections of an appraiser (respectively, “Landlord’s Appraiser” and “Tenant’s Appraiser”). Landlord’s Appraiser and Tenant’s Appraiser shall then jointly select a third appraiser (the “Third Appraiser”) within ten (10) business days of their appointment. All of the appraisers selected shall be individuals with at least five (5) consecutive years’ commercial appraisal experience in the area in which the Premises are located, shall be members of the Appraisal Institute (M.A.I.), and, in the case of the Third Appraiser, shall not have acted in any capacity for either Landlord or Tenant within five
(5) years of his or her selection. The three appraisers shall determine the Extension Term Base Rent in accordance with the requirements and criteria set forth in Section 4(d) above, employing the method commonly known as Baseball Arbitration, whereby Landlord’s Appraiser and Tenant’s Appraiser each sets forth its determination of the Extension Term Base Rent as defined above, and the Third Appraiser must select one or the other (it being understood that the Third Appraiser shall be expressly prohibited from selecting a compromise figure). Landlord’s Appraiser and Tenant’s Appraiser shall deliver their determinations of the Extension Term Base Rent to the Third Appraiser within five (5) days of the appointment of the Third Appraiser and the Third Appraiser shall render his or her decision within ten (10) days after receipt of both of the other two determinations of the Extension Term Base Rent. The Third Appraiser’s decision shall be binding on both
Landlord and Tenant. Each party shall bear the cost of its own appraiser and the cost of the Third Appraiser shall be paid by the party whose determination is not selected.
Security Deposit. Reference is made to the fact that Landlord is currently holding a Security Deposit in the amount of Two Hundred Eighty Thousand Six Hundred Sixty-Five and 00/100 Dollars ($280,665.00) (the “Existing Security Deposit Amount”) in the form of cash (the “Existing Security Deposit”) pursuant to the provisions of Article 7 of the Lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, concurrently with the execution of this First Amendment, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord, as replacement security for Tenant’s performance of all its Lease obligations, a Letter of Credit (the “Replacement Security Deposit”) in the amount of One Hundred Thirty Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy-Seven and 00/100 Dollars ($130,977.00), substantially in the form attached hereto as ExhibitA, satisfying the requirements of this Section 5 and Article 7 of the Lease. Landlord shall return the Existing Security Deposit within five (5) business days after Landlord receives such Replacement Security Deposit from Tenant.
SNDA. Subject to the provisions of Section 22.1 of the Lease, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause any future Mortgagee to deliver to Tenant a Non- disturbance Agreement on the standard form used by the holder of the Mortgage in question, with such commercially reasonable modifications as may be requested by Tenant.
Ratification. Except as amended hereby, the terms and conditions of the Lease shall remain unaffected and in full force and effect throughout the balance of the Term, as extended hereby. From and after the date hereof, all references to the "Lease" shall mean the Lease as amended hereby. Additionally, Landlord and Tenant each confirms and ratifies that, as of the date hereof and to its actual knowledge, (a) the Lease is and remains in good standing and in full force and effect, and (b) neither party has any claims, counterclaims, set-offs or defenses against the other party arising out of the Lease or the Premises or in any way relating thereto or arising out of any other transaction between Landlord and Tenant. The submission of drafts of this document for examination and negotiation does not constitute an offer, or a reservation of or option for any of the terms and conditions set forth in this First Amendment, and this First Amendment shall not be binding upon Landlord or Tenant unless and until Landlord shall have executed and delivered a fully executed copy of this First Amendment to Tenant.
Miscellaneous. Tenant and Landlord each warrants and represents that it has dealt with no broker in connection with the consummation of this First Amendment other than CBRE (the “Broker”). Tenant and Landlord each agrees to defend, indemnify and save the other harmless from and against any Claims arising in breach of its representation and warranty set forth in the immediately preceding sentence. Landlord shall be solely responsible for the payment of any brokerage commissions to Broker. This First Amendment is binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of Landlord and Tenant and their respective successors and assigns. This First Amendment constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous oral and written agreements and discussions, and may not be amended, waived, discharged or terminated except by a written instrument signed by all the parties hereto. This First Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts and by each of the undersigned on separate counterparts, which counterparts taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument. This First Amendment may be executed by electronic signature, which shall be considered as an original signature for all purposes and shall have the same force and
effect as an original signature. Without limitation, in addition to electronically produced signatures, “electronic signature” shall include faxed versions of an original signature or electronically scanned and transmitted versions (e.g., via pdf) of an original signature.
