Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On July 5, 2017, we entered into a Second Amendment to Lease (the “Amendment”) with 111 Lemon Investors LLC (the “Landlord”), which amended that certain Lease dated as of January 1, 2015 (the “Original Lease”) by and between us and BF Monrovia, LLC (“Original Landlord”), as amended by that certain Amendment to Lease dated as of January 26, 2015, whereby we leased from Original Landlord that certain space containing approximately 24,573 rentable square feet, located on the second floor (the “Existing Premises”) of that certain building located at 111 West Lemon Street, Monrovia, California 91016 (the “Building”).  The Amendment amends the Original Lease to expand the Existing Premises to include approximately 23,652 rentable square feet, comprising the entire third floor of the Building (the “Expansion Space”).  The Amendment, including the expansion of the Existing Premises to include the Expansion Space, is scheduled to commence on August 1, 2017 (the “Expansion Commencement Date”) and will terminate 62 months following the Expansion Commencement Date. The initial base monthly rent for the Expansion Space, which will be paid by us separate and apart from the base monthly rent payable for the Existing Premises under the Original Lease, is $50,851.80 and will increase approximately three percent annually.  Additional rent may be due for excess operating and tax expenses pursuant to Section 5 of the Amendment.


A copy of the Amendment is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this current report and the description of the terms of the Amendment contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
