(the “Company”), entered into a triple-net lease (the “Lease”) with Tenant for the entire Property. The Lease provides that Tenant is responsible for paying all structural repairs, maintenance expenses, insurance and taxes related to the Property. The initial Lease term expires on May 15, 2034, with two options to extend the term of the Lease for two additional five-year periods. Tenant intends to operate the Property as a medical-use cannabis cultivation and processing facility upon completion of development.

Also on March 13, 2019, Tenant, Landlord and the Operating Partnership entered into a Development Agreement (the “Development Agreement”), to which Tenant is responsible for the development of an approximately 32,000 square foot greenhouse facility and an approximately 26,000 square foot industrial facility on the Property. to the Development Agreement, Landlord is obligated to reimburse Tenant for costs of development of up to $19.3 million (the “Construction Funding”), subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions contained therein.

The initial annualized base rent (the “Base Rent”) under the Lease is $2,650,000, payable monthly. The Base Rent will be abated until May 15, 2019 and is subject to annual increases of 3.25% during the Lease term. Tenant is also responsible for paying the Company a property management fee equal to 1.5% of the then-current Base Rent under the Lease.

to the Lease, Tenant delivered to Landlord an initial security deposit of $23,187.50 in cash at the execution of the Lease. The security deposit shall increase for each draw of the Construction Funding in an amount equal to three months of the corresponding increase in Base Rent, and the full security deposit of $662,500 shall be funded no later than the date that is 15 months following the commencement date of the Lease.

In addition, any entity affiliated with Tenant and operating in the cannabis industry, including any entity formed during the term of the Lease, shall enter into a full guaranty with respect to Tenant’s obligations under the Lease, subject to adjustment to the Multi-Party Agreement described below.

Also to the Lease, Tenant has the option, at its discretion during the first four years of the term of the Lease, to sell or otherwise transfer its interests in the government approvals and licenses required to conduct medical-use cannabis cultivation and processing at the Property (the “Required Approvals”). If Tenant elects to make such a transfer of the Required Approvals, Landlord, in its sole discretion, can elect to either a) consent to having the transferee of the Required Approvals replace Tenant and the guarantors in connection with the Lease; or b) require that Tenant repurchase the Property from Landlord at a price equal to the greater of a) the appraised value of the Property and b) the quotient of (i) the total Base Rent payable during the calendar year in which the notice for the transfer of the Required Approvals is delivered, divided by (ii) 9.75%, less any unfunded Construction Funding at the time of closing of the repurchase of the Property. Upon the receipt of the Required Approvals and Tenant becoming a majority-owned subsidiary of MedMen ParentCo (as defined below), the Lease provisions described in this paragraph shall automatically terminate.
