2.Second Extended Term. The Lease Term of the Amended Lease (the “Second Extended Term”) is hereby extended to expire on January 31, 2028 (the “Second Extended Term Expiration Date”). For the avoidance of doubt, Tenant’s lease of the Current Premises and the Second Expansion Space shall expire co-terminously. No such extension shall operate to release Tenant from liability for any amounts owed or defaults which exist under the Lease prior to the Effective Date; provided, however, Landlord hereby represents that, to the best of Landlord’s knowledge, (i) no such amounts are owed and
outstanding, and (ii) no default exists, or with the giving of notice or passage of time would exist, on the part of Tenant under the Lease, as of the Effective Date.
The Second Extended Term as to the Second Expansion Space shall commence on the earlier of (i) substantial completion of the Additional Improvements in the Second Expansion Space or

3.Base Rent. Prior to February 1, 2023, which is the Third Floor Expansion Space Expiration Date (as defined in the First Amendment), Tenant shall continue to pay monthly installments of Base Rent for the Current Premises as provided in the Lease.

7.Condition of the Current Premises. Tenant is currently in possession of the Current Premises and acknowledges that except as expressly provided in this Amendment, Landlord shall not be obligated to refurbish or improve the Current Premises or to otherwise fund improvements for the Current Premises in any manner whatsoever in conjunction with this Amendment. Tenant further acknowledges that except as expressly provided in the Lease and this Amendment, neither Landlord nor any agent of Landlord has made any representation or warranty regarding the condition of the Current Premises, the improvements, refurbishments, or alterations therein, the 10935 Building or the Project, or with respect to the functionality thereof or the suitability of any of the foregoing for the conduct of Tenant’s business and that all representations and warranties of Landlord, if any, are as set forth in the Lease and this Amendment.

10.Accessibility. Pursuant to Section 1938 of the California Civil Code, Landlord hereby advises Tenant that as of the date of this Amendment neither the Current Premises, the Second Expansion Space, the 10935 Building nor the Project have undergone inspection by a Certified Access Specialist. Further, pursuant to Section 1938 of the California Civil Code, Landlord notifies Tenant of the following: “A Certified Access Specialist (CASp) can inspect the subject premises and determine whether the subject premises comply with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under state law. Although state law does not require a CASp inspection of the subject premises, the commercial property owner or lessor may not prohibit the lessee or tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the subject premises for the occupancy or potential occupancy of the lessee or tenant, if requested by the lessee or tenant. 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.” Therefore and notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Amended Lease, Landlord and Tenant agree that (a) Tenant may, at its option and at its sole cost, cause a CASp to inspect the Premises and determine whether the Premises complies with all of the applicable construction-related accessibility standards under California law, (b) the parties shall mutually coordinate and reasonably approve of the timing of any such CASp inspection so that Landlord may, at its option, have a representative present during such inspection, and (c) if Tenant requires the CASp inspection under this Paragraph, Tenant shall be solely responsible for the cost of any repairs necessary to correct violations of construction-related accessibility standards within the Current Premises, the Second Expansion Space, in the 10935 Building or at the Project, revealed solely as a result of such CASp inspection, any and all such alterations and repairs within the Premises to be performed by Tenant in accordance with Article 4 of the Original Lease; provided Tenant shall have no obligation to remove any repairs or alterations made pursuant to a CASp inspection under this Paragraph.
11.Parking. As provided in the Original Lease, Tenant shall have the right to use an additional forty-nine (49) unreserved parking stalls for the Second Expansion Space. Tenant’s additional parking spaces shall be located in one of the two (2) parking structures in the Project. Tenant’s parking rights shall be governed by the Amended Lease.
12.Broker. Tenant warrants that it has had no dealings with any real estate broker or agent in connection with the negotiation of this Amendment, excepting only RE:Align, Inc. (the “Broker”), and that it knows of no other real estate broker or agent acting on behalf of Tenant who is or might be thereby entitled to a commission in connection with this Amendment. Each party agrees to indemnify and defend the other party against and hold the other party harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, lawsuits, judgments, and costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees) with respect to any leasing commission or equivalent compensation alleged to be owing on account of the indemnifying party's dealings with any real estate broker or agent other than the Broker. Landlord shall pay any brokerage commissions payable to the Broker in connection with the execution of this Amendment pursuant to a separate agreement between Landlord and the Broker. Nothing set forth herein or otherwise under this Amendment shall be deemed to require that Tenant retain any specific broker to act on Tenant’s behalf or for its benefit, including the Broker, in connection with any further or future negotiations with Landlord under this Amendment, including as to any renewals or extensions of the Lease Term, or expansions of the Premises, and Tenant hereby disclaims any such retention or relationship absent further notice by Tenant thereof to Landlord in each such instance.
13.Security Documents. Landlord represents and warrants that no Security Documents exist as of the Effective Date of this Amendment.
14.Signage. Landlord confirms that Tenant is entitled to the Building Sign specified in Paragraph 7(h) of the Original Lease upon the execution of this Amendment; provided, however,
“Building Sign” shall mean exclusive building-top and eyebrow signage rights for the entire 10935 Building.
15.Extension Options. Tenant shall continue to have the option rights set forth in Rider No. 1 attached to the Original Lease; provided, however, (a) Tenant shall have two (2) Extension Options for two (2) additional periods of five (5) years each (in lieu of Tenant’s existing extension option rights),
a.Tenant may only exercise such Extension Options as to all of the Tenant Premises collectively (inclusive of the Current Premises and the Second Expansion Space), if at all, and (c) for purposes of determining the “fair market rental rate” (as defined in Rider No. 2 to the Original Lease) in connection with the Extension Options, the fair market rental rate shall be determined based on the higher of fair market office use rents or fair market life science/lab use rents. Section 19 of the First Amendment is hereby deleted in its entirety. In the event Landlord and Tenant fail to reach agreement on the fair market rental rate by the Outside Agreement Date (as defined in Section 2 of Rider No. 2 to the Original Lease), then the fair market rental rate for the applicable option term shall be determined pursuant to Section 3 of Rider No. 2 provided, however, that there shall be two appraisals performed; one appraisal will be to determine the fair market rental rate for office use and the other appraisal will be to determine the fair market rental rate for life science/lab use. The appraisal for the fair market rental rate for the office use rents shall be performed in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Section 3 except that the phrase, “Torrey Hills area” in Section 1 of Rider No. 2 is deemed changed to “Market Area” (as defined below). The appraisal for the fair market rental rate for life science/lab use rents shall be performed in accordance with Section 3 of Rider No. 2 provided that (i) the M.A.I. appraiser shall be one who has been active over the five (5) year period ending on the date of such appointment in the leasing of life science/lab properties in the Torrey Hills, Del Mar Heights, Sorrento Mesa and UTC market areas (collectively, the “Market Area”); and (ii) the references in Rider No. 2 to comparable quality office buildings located in the Torrey Hills area shall be deemed changed to first-class, institutional quality life science/lab use buildings located in the Market Area, with the word “institutional” meaning owned by a landlord whose primary business is the ownership and operation of commercial properties comparable to the Building in the Market Area. Once the fair market rental rate for office use and for life science/lab use is determined, Tenant shall pay the greater of such determined rent amount during the applicable Option Term (including annual adjustments).
16.Tenant’s Proposed Common Area Alterations. Attached hereto as Exhibit C is a narrative description generally describing the Alterations which Tenant desires to perform in the 10935 Building (the “Proposed Common Area Alterations”). Landlord hereby approves, in concept only, such Proposed Common Area Alterations subject to the following conditions: (i) such Proposed Common Area Alterations shall be performed by Tenant at Tenant’s sole cost and expense in accordance with, and subject to, all of the terms and conditions of Paragraph 4 of the Original Lease or in accordance with the Work Letter (if Tenant is performing such Proposed Common Area Alterations during Tenant’s construction of the Additional Improvements); (ii) Landlord’s final approval of such Proposed Common Area Alterations is subject to Landlord’s prior written approval of detailed specific plans and specifications for the same (which plans and specifications Tenant shall provide to Landlord for Landlord’s approval prior to Tenant performing any such Proposed Common Area Alterations), which review and approval process shall be in accordance with Sections 4(a), (b) and (c) of the Work Letter; and (iii) Landlord reserves the right to cause Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense (but subject to application of the Additional Allowance pursuant to Section 6 (iv) and (v) above), to remove all or a portion of such Proposed Common Area Alterations upon the expiration or sooner termination of the Lease (so long as Landlord specified such removal during Landlord’s review of the plans and specifications for the same) and to repair any damage to the Building caused by such removal. Tenant’s indemnification obligations in the Lease shall extent to Tenant’s activities in common areas of the 10935 Building.
17.Authority. Each party warrants to the other that the person signing this Amendment on its behalf is fully authorized to do so and, by so doing, to bind such party.
18.Successors and Assigns. This Amendment shall extend to, be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the respective successors and permitted assigns and beneficiaries of the parties hereto.
19.No Other Modification. Landlord and Tenant agree that except as otherwise specifically modified in this Amendment, the Lease has not been modified, supplemented, amended, or otherwise changed in any way and the Lease remains in full force and effect between the parties hereto as modified by this Amendment. To the extent of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of the Lease and the terms and conditions of this Amendment, the terms and conditions of this Amendment shall apply and govern the parties. This Amendment may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which, together, shall constitute one and the same Amendment. For purposes of this Amendment, signatures by facsimile or electronic PDF shall be binding to the same extent as original signatures.
