7. This Amendment is contingent upon Landlord entering into lease terminations and relocations with tenants who currently occupy Suites 100, 500, and 450. If Landlord has not entered into lease terminations or relocations at least ninety (90) days prior to the Commencement Dates identified in Article 2 herein, then Tenant shall have the option to exercise the remedies identified in Article 2.

8. Landlord agrees to provide to Tenant a build-out allowance in the amount of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) upon an agreed scope of work ("Tenant Allowance") for renovations to Suites 100, 450 and 500 and shall not be obligated to pay any Tenant Allowance specified in the Original Lease. To utilize the Tenant Allowance, Landlord shall identify to Tenant the contractors and suppliers, whom Landlord intends to utilize to construct the renovations to Suites 100, 500, and 450; however, Tenant has the right to approve or disapprove any such contractors and suppliers. Prior to commencement of any renovations, Landlord shall provide Tenant with an estimate of the costs of each renovation and require Tenant's approval with respect to the costs and the contractors and or suppliers proposed by Landlord. In the event either the cost or the contractors or suppliers are deemed unacceptable to Tenant, then Landlord and Tenant shall act in good faith and negotiate acceptable costs and identify acceptable contractors and/or suppliers.

This additional time will give Tenant an opportunity to occupy the space and ensure the renovations have been satisfactorily completed. Tenant shall not be entitled to any excess monies not used in the Tenant Allowance nor shall Tenant be entitled to any rent reduction or other compensation. In the event that the renovations to Suites 100, 450, and 500 exceed the amount of the Tenant Allowance, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord all costs of such renovations in excess of this amount; which Tenant had approved prior to Landlord incurring such costs. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord shall have no obligation to make any renovations to Suites 100, 450, and 500 that cost in excess of the Tenant Allowance. It shall be the Landlord's responsibility to ensure that all agreed to renovations have been satisfactorily completed prior to Tenant's occupancy of the



Expansion Space being renovated. Failure of the Landlord to so complete the renovations satisfactory shall entitle Tenant to the remedies afforded Tenant in Article 2, as Landlord will be deemed in default of delivery Expansion Space on its Commencement Date. Prior to Tenant's obligation to occupy any Expansion Space will require Landlord to have the renovations completed. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, any matter that requires the consent of Tenant must be made within three calendar (3) days of written notification by Landlord to Tenant.
