Landlord shall not be required to keep the Security Deposit separate from its general funds, and Tenant shall not be entitled to interest on the Security Deposit. If Tenant shall fully and faithfully perform every provision of this Lease to be performed by it, the Security Deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned to Tenant (or at Landlord’s option, to the last assignee of Tenant’s interest hereunder) within sixty (60) days after the expiration of the Primary Lease Term or any extension period thereof.

9. Paragraph 31 shall be modified to read as follows:

OPTION TO RENEW. If Tenant is not then in default of the terms, covenants and conditions herein contained, Tenant shall have the option to renew this Lease for two (2) additional terms of three (3) years each. In the event Tenant desires to exercise said option, Tenant shall give written notice of such fact to Landlord not less than six (6) months prior to the expiration of the then current term of this Lease. In the event of such exercise, this Lease shall be deemed to be extended for the additional period on the same terms and conditions; provided however, Landlord shall adjust basic monthly rental to the then existing market rate for similar space in the Boulder vicinity. Basic monthly rental shall increase by the market rate increases commencing the second year of the additional term. Landlord shall notify Tenant of its determination of market rent no less than five (5) months prior to commencement of the option term. In the event Tenant objects to Landlord’s determination, Tenant must notify Landlord in writing on or before the date that is four (4) months prior to the commencement of the option term. Within the next thirty (30) days Landlord and Tenant shall each select a Colorado qualified real estate appraiser with no fewer than five (5) years’ of experience appraising property similar to the Premises in Boulder County, Colorado, to determine the fair market rental value of the Premises. In order to be included in this value determination process, such appraisers’ determinations must be delivered in writing to both Landlord and Tenant within thirty (30) days after their appointment. If the valuations determined by such appraisers are within ten percent (10%) of one another, the fair market rental value of the Premises shall be the average of their figures. If the valuations determined by such appraisers are outside ten percent (10%) of one another, the two previously chosen appraisers shall jointly appoint a third appraiser with similar qualifications who shall independently determine the fair market rental value of the Premises within thirty (30) days after the appointment. The three fair market rental values shall be averaged and the resulting amount shall he the amount for that option term. The cost of all appraisals shall be paid equally by Landlord and Tenant.

10. Paragraph 32a is modified to read as follows:

a. Landlord agrees to provide an allowance of $271,280 for future Alterations of the Premises, as approved by both Tenant and Landlord. Any reasonable request for approval by the Tenant for Alternations should not be unreasonably withheld by the Landlord. The Alterations shall be subject to the provisions of Paragraph 9 above. Landlord’s architect, JM Associates, shall prepare all necessary construction drawings, including engaging any mechanical, structural and electrical engineers, as necessary, for the construction of the Alterations. The cost of the architect and engineers shall be deducted from the allowance. All construction shall be done by one of Landlord’s approved general contractors, either CCM Construction or Sand Construction, or any



future approved general contractors, provided, however, Landlord’s general contractor shall use one of the approved HVAC subcontractors referenced in Paragraph 12 of this Addendum for any HVAC Alterations. All pricing shall be conducted on an open book basis. Tenant shall have the right to review all quotes for commercial reasonableness. If Tenant believes any of the major portions of the bid is not commercially reasonable, Landlord shall require the general contractor to obtain up to two additional bids from subcontractors for that portion of the bid. The cost of the construction shall be deducted from the allowance and Tenant shall be responsible for any costs in excess of the allowance for Tenant approved Alternations.

Note that Tenant intends to use a portion of the allowance provided above for improvements of the building’s aging HVAC system. The parties agree that a Tenant proposed plan to replace certain parts that are aging are considered Alternations.

11. Landlord and Tenant understand that certain tenant improvements need to be constructed prior to Tenant occupying the second floor. This may include carpet. paint, the creation of a larger conference meeting area, modifications to the kitchen area, and other minor modifications to the general layout. Said improvements shall start as soon as reasonably possible after September 1, 2015, and be completed no later than November 30, 2015. If said improvements are completed prior to November 30, 2015, Tenant shall have the right to occupy the second floor at that time and shall commence paying Base Rent of $26,914.54 per month on a pro-rated basis and 100% of Property Operating Expenses. Prior to completing the tenant improvements Tenant’s Pro Rata Share per Paragraph 1w shall be 49.3770%. The cost of the tenant improvements shall be deducted from the allowance and Tenant shall be responsible for any costs in excess of the allowance for Tenant approved Alternations.

12. Tenant shall have the option to select CSC, Long Technology, Design Mechanical or Innovative Air for HVAC maintenance and repairs but The Colorado Group, Inc. and



Chrisman Commercial, LLC shall have the sole authority for arranging all HVAC maintenance and repairs.

13. Other than as modified herein, all terms and conditions of the Lease shall remain unchanged.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned have executed this document as of the date above written.
