Landlord and Tenant are entering into this Fourth Amendment to set
forth said agreements.
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of One Dollar ($1.00) and other good
and valuable consideration in hand this date paid by each of the parties to the other, the receipt and sufficiency of which are
hereby severally acknowledged, and in further consideration of the mutual promises herein contained, Landlord and Tenant hereby
agree to and with each other as follows:
|1.||(A) The Term of the Lease, which but for this Fourth Amendment is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2018, is hereby extended
for one (1) period of fifteen (15) months commencing on July 1, 2018 and expiring on September 30, 2019 (the “Fourth Extended
Term”), unless extended or sooner terminated in accordance with the provisions of the Lease, upon all the same terms and
conditions contained in the Lease as herein amended.|
(B) Any rights of Tenant to extend
the Term of the Lease pursuant to the terms of the Lease are hereby deleted and of no further force and effect, but Tenant shall
have the right to extend the Term for one (1) period of one (1) year as provided in this Section 1(B).
(i) On the conditions (which conditions
Landlord may waive by written notice to Tenant) that at the time of exercise of the option to extend and at the commencement date
of the extension option period (i) there exists no Event of Default (defined in Section 7.1 of the Lease) and there have been no
more than two (2) Event of Default occurrences during the Fourth Extended Term, (ii) this Lease is still in full force and effect,
and (iii) Tenant has neither assigned this Lease nor sublet the Premises except for an assignment or subletting permitted without
Landlord’s consent under Section 5.6.4 of the Lease, Tenant shall have the right to extend the Term hereof upon all the same
terms, conditions, covenants and agreements herein contained (except for the Annual Fixed Rent which shall be adjusted during the
option period as herein below set forth) for one (1) period of one (1) year as hereinafter set forth. Notwithstanding any implication
to the contrary Landlord has no obligation to make any additional payment to Tenant in respect of any construction allowance or
the like or to perform any work to the Premises as a result of the exercise by Tenant of such option.
(ii) If Tenant desires to exercise said option to extend the Term, then Tenant shall give notice to Landlord (“Exercise Notice”), not earlier than twelve (12) months nor later than six (6) months prior to the expiration of the Term, as it may have been previously extended, hereunder of Tenant’s request for Landlord’s quotation (“Landlord’s Rent Quotation”) of the annual fair market rent for the Premises as of the commencement date of the extension period, such quotation to be based on the use of the Premises as first class office space utilizing properties of a similar character within the Boston West Suburban market and including consideration of all relevant factors (including, without limitation, premises within the Complex if at the time such quotation is requested such premises shall be available for rent) (hereinafter called the “Annual Market Rent”). Within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s notice requesting such a quotation, Landlord shall notify Tenant of Landlord’s quotation of the Annual Market Rent. If at the expiration of fifteen (15) days after the date when Landlord provides Landlord’s Rent Quotation to Tenant as aforesaid (the “Negotiation Period”), Landlord and Tenant have not reached agreement on a determination of an Annual Fixed Rent for such extension period and executed a written instrument extending the Term of this Lease pursuant to such agreement, then Tenant shall have the right, for fifteen (15) days following the expiration of the Negotiation Period, to make a request to Landlord for a broker determination (the “Broker Determination”) of the Prevailing Market Rent (as defined in Exhibit D attached hereto) for such extension period, which Broker Determination shall be made in the manner set forth in Exhibit D. If Tenant timely shall have requested the Broker Determination, then the Annual Fixed Rent for such extension period shall be the Prevailing Market Rent as determined by the Broker Determination. If Tenant does not timely request the Broker Determination, then the Annual Fixed Rent during such extension term shall be equal to the greater of (a) Landlord’s Rent Quotation or (b) the Annual Fixed Rent in effect during the last twelve (12) month period of the Lease Term immediately prior to such extension term.
