Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On June 18, 2021, Quantum-Si Incorporated (the “Company”) entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with BP3-SD5 5510 Morehouse Drive LLC (the “Landlord”) for approximately 25,586 rentable square feet consisting of the 4th floor of the building located at 5510 Morehouse Drive, San Diego, California (the “Premises”). The Premises covered by the Lease will serve as the Company’s product development and operations facility.


The initial term of the Lease is six (6) years and four (4) months beginning on the Lease Commencement Date, which is September 1, 2021. The Company has the option to extend the Term of the Lease for one (1) additional five (5) year period, subject to the terms of the Lease.


The Company will be obligated to make monthly rent payments in the amount of approximately $117,183.88 per month for the first twelve (12) months, which is subject to increase by 3% annually thereafter. In the event the Company exercises its option to extend the Lease term, the Lease provides for monthly rent payments during the additional five (5) year periods at the then-current fair market rent as determined in accordance with the Lease. In addition to Base Rent, the Lease requires the Company to pay its proportionate share (23.74%) of Additional Rent amounts for taxes, insurance, maintenance and other operating expenses.


The Lease includes various covenants, indemnities, termination rights, and other provisions customary for lease transactions of this nature, including the delivery by the Company of a security deposit in the amount of $117,183.88 concurrent with the Company’s execution of the Lease. The Lease also contains customary events of default that, among other things, entitle the Landlord to terminate the Lease and recover from the Company all rent payments and other amounts payable as of the date of termination and that would otherwise be payable for the remainder of the term of Lease, plus certain additional costs and expenses arising from the termination. The specified events of default include, among other things, nonpayment of rent or other amounts due and payable by the Company under the Lease, an uncured breach of a covenant under the Lease, abandonment of the Premises, an assignment to the benefit of creditors, and certain bankruptcy and insolvency events.


The foregoing summary of the Lease is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Lease, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.03Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


The disclosures set forth above under Item 1.01 are incorporated herein by reference.


Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure.
