WHEREAS, the parties desire to amend and modify certain terms and provisions of the Agreement, as set forth hereinbelow.


NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration often dollars ($10.00), the agreements set forth herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the·receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Seller and Purchaser, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:


1.            The recitations and facts set forth above are true, accurate and complete and are incorporated herein by this reference. Any term used herein and not defined in this Amendment shall have the meaning ascribed thereto in the Agreement.


2.            The definition of "Purchase Price" is hereby modified to delete the phrase "Five Million Seven Hundred Thousand'Dollars ($5,700,00.00)" and replace it with "Five Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($5 500,000.00)".


3.            For Purchaser to obtain an EPA Phase II study, at Purchaser's sole expense, the Due Diligence period referenced in Sections 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3 of the Agreement is extended for an additional 45-day period from the date of this Amendment. Purchaser agrees to provide copies of all Phase II results promptly upon receipt from its environmental consultant, and if the environmental consultant determines that remediation actions are required to comply with applicable Environmental Laws, then the Purchaser shall also share a complete copy of the remediation estimate and the supporting documentation for it. In exchange for this extension, Purchaser, on the next business day following the date of this Amendment, shall deposit an additional $150,000 of earnest money with Old Republic Title as escrowee, bringing the total of earnest money to $250,000.00. Subject to one condition in this paragraph below, the earnest money shall immediately become nonrefundable, and Purchaser shall be responsible for any costs associated with remediation, and the transaction shall close pursuant to the terms of the Agreement. However, in the event the Phase II study identifies remediation actions which are reasonably estimated to exceed $400,000, Purchaser may terminate the Agreement and receive a full refund of the earnest money. For the avoidance of doubt, the $400,000 remediation cost estimate shall only apply to the remediation of contamination that originated on the Property and not due to the migration of contamination onto the Property from anywhere offsite. The remediation cost estimate shall be determined on the basis of the continued use of the Property for industrial or commercial purposes and shall be determined using deed restrictions, covenants or other similar methods, such as engineered barriers, to the greatest degree practical so that the remediation actions achieve compliance with applicable Environmental Laws. Seller and Purchaser acknowledge that the Closing Date is extended until November 15, 2022, or sooner by agreement of the Parties.
