On December 18, 2018, Haemonetics Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an office lease agreement (the “Lease”) with OPG 125 Summer Owner (DE) LLC (“Landlord”) for 62,066 rentable square feet of space located at 125 Summer Street, Boston, MA (the “Premises”). The Premises will serve as the Company’s new corporate headquarters and replace its existing location in Braintree, MA.

The term of the Lease is 152 months (including an initial 8 month free-rent period beginning on October 1, 2019) and will commence on the date that Landlord has substantially completed construction of the Premises’ warm shell and all tenant improvements, which is currently targeted as October 1, 2019. The Company has options to extend the initial term of the Lease for two additional five-year periods. Landlord has agreed to provide a tenant improvement allowance towards leasehold improvements, and the Company will be responsible for the cost of tenant improvements that exceed such allowance.

In addition to base rent, the Company will be responsible for certain operating expenses specified in the Lease, including a proportionate share of real estate taxes and other customary costs incurred by Landlord. The Lease also contains customary default provisions allowing the Landlord to terminate the Lease if the Company fails to cure certain breaches of its obligations under the Lease within a specified period of time. In addition, the Company will be obligated to indemnify the Landlord for certain losses incurred in connection with the Company’s use and occupancy of the Premises.

The foregoing description of the Lease does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Lease, a copy of which will be filed with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ending December 29, 2018.
