WHEREAS, Sublandord and Subtenant are party to that certain Sublease Agreement, dated as of January 26, 2017 (the “Sublease”, as may be further amended or modified from time to time), pursuant to which Sublandord subleases to Subtenant certain premises consisting of approximately 12,303 rentable square feet with a common address of 345 Inverness Drive South, Building B, Suite 250, Englewood, Colorado 80112, as more particularly described in the Sublease (the “Subleased Premises”). Capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Sublease.


WHEREAS, the Term is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2021 and Sublandord and Subtenant desire to extend the Term for an additional thirty-four (34) full calendar months from such expiration date and to amend the terms and conditions of the Sublease as hereinafter provided.




NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged by the parties, and the mutual covenants set forth herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:


1.    Extension of Term. The Term is hereby extended for a period of thirty-four (34) full calendar months, commencing as of June 1, 2021 (the “Extended Term Commencement Date”) and expiring on March 31, 2024 (the “Extended Term”). From and after the date hereof, the “Term” shall be deemed to include the Extended Term.

During the Rent Abatement Period, Subtenant’s obligation to pay any and all other charges pursuant to the terms of the Sublease shall continue in full force and effect without abatement of any kind. The abatement of gross Rent described above is expressly conditioned on Subtenant’s performance of its obligations under the Sublease throughout the Term. If there is default under the Sublease and such default leads to the enforcement of any remedies against Subtenant (including the termination of the Sublease prior to the expiration of the Term), then Subtenant shall immediately pay to Sublandlord on demand, in addition to all other amounts and damages to which Sublandlord is entitled, the amount of gross Rent which would otherwise have been due and payable during any portion of the Rent Abatement Period.

(a)    Sublandlords Work. Sublandlord agrees to perform or cause to be performed that certain construction, repair, maintenance, or those certain improvements to the Subleased Premises as specified below (the “Sublandlord’s Work”), without warranty and using Sublandlord’s standard building materials and finishes:




The work generally described in Exhibit B attached hereto.


(b)    Substantial Completion. Sublandlord agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to Substantially Complete (as hereinafter defined) the Sublandlord’s Work by the date that is seven (7) months from the Effective Date, subject to extensions for force majeure and any Subtenant caused delays (including, without limitation, Subtenant’s failure to provide Sublandlord with reasonable access to the Subleased Premises to undertake the Sublandlord’s Work); provided, however, Subtenant acknowledges and agrees that Sublandlord makes no guaranty or warranty of Substantial Completion by such date. The Sublandlord’s Work shall be deemed substantially completed (“Substantially Completed” or “Substantial Completion”) when, in the opinion of the construction manager (whether an employee or agent of Sublandlord or a third party construction manager, the “Construction Manager”), the Sublandlord’s Work is substantially completed except for punch list items which do not prevent in any material way the use of the Subleased Premises for the purposes for which they were intended. In the event Subtenant, its employees, agents, or contractors cause, directly or indirectly, the construction or completion of the Sublandlord’s Work to be delayed, then the date of Substantial Completion shall be deemed to be the date that, in the opinion of the Construction Manager, Substantial Completion would have occurred if such delays or impairments had not taken place. Without limiting the foregoing, Subtenant shall be solely responsible for delays caused by Subtenant’s request for any changes in the plans, Subtenant’s request for long lead items, Subtenant’s failure to provide Sublandlord with reasonable access to the Subleased Premises to undertake the Sublandlord’s Work, and/or Subtenant’s interference with the construction of the Sublandlord’s Work, and such delays shall not entitle Subtenant to any abatement of rent or other rights of any kind. Substantial Completion is only material for purposes of determining the completion of the Sublandlord’s Work and has no impact whatsoever on the Extended Term Commencement Date and/or Subtenant’s other obligations under the Sublease, including, without limitation, the obligation to pay rent. In no event shall Sublandlord have any obligation for any defects in the Subleased Premises or any limitation on its use.


(c)    Access. From and after the date of execution of this Amendment, Subtenant shall provide Sublandlord with all necessary access to the Subleased Premises, and shall cooperate with Sublandlord in all respects, to undertake and complete the Sublandlord’s Work, it being understood that Subtenant shall not be entitled to any abatement of rent or claims of any kind against Sublandlord in connection with any inconvenience or accommodations which are required by Sublandlord, or in connection with any interference with Subtenant’s business operations or damage to any of Subtenant’s property, as part of the completion of the Sublandlord’s Work. Subtenant, at its sole cost and expense and prior to the commencement of the Sublandlord’s Work, shall promptly remove all personal property, trade fixtures, equipment, office furniture and/or other similar items, if any, as may be required by Sublandlord for Sublandlord to undertake and complete the Sublandlord’s Work.
