Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On March 11, 2020, Motus GI Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a lease of certain office space (the “Lease Agreement”) with 720 UNIVERSITY PROPERTY, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Landlord”), as landlord, pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease from the Landlord certain premises (the “Premises”) located at 720 University Avenue, Norwood, Massachusetts, to be used for general, administrative and executive offices, and uses ancillary thereto. The Property will serve as the Company’s new corporate headquarters.


The Premises consist of approximately 7,684 leasable square feet. The base rent for the Premises varies over the Term (as defined below), and generally ranges from approximately $197,900 to approximately $244,000 per year. The Company also will be responsible for its pro rata share of any operating expenses, taxes and insurance expenses incurred by the Landlord in connection with the office building in which the Premises are located. The Lease Agreement also contains customary default provisions allowing the Landlord to terminate the Lease Agreement if the Company fails to cure certain breaches of its obligations under the Lease Agreement 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. Concurrent with the execution of the Lease Agreement, the Company delivered a letter of credit to the Landlord as a security deposit in an amount equal to $65,954.32 (the "Letter of Credit").


The Lease Agreement includes the grant by the Landlord to the Company of a tenant improvement allowance to be used toward the initial build out of the Premises by the Landlord in an amount of up to $399,568.00 (the “Landlord’s Contribution”). As a condition to taking occupancy of the Premises, the Company will pay, as additional rent, any construction costs incurred by the Landlord in excess of the Landlord’s Contribution. The initial term of the Lease Agreement (the “Term”) is for a period of six years and two months (including an initial 2 month free-rent period beginning on the Commencement Date (as defined below)) and shall begin on the date that Landlord substantially completes the initial build out of the Premises, which is expected to be on or about June 11, 2020 (the “Commencement Date”). Under the Lease Agreement, the Company has the option to extend the Term for one subsequent five-year period, provided that the base rent during any extension term will be at a prevailing market rate.


The summary of the Lease Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to full text of the Lease Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


On March 12, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the Lease Agreement with Landlord. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information furnished under Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, is deemed to be “furnished” and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purpose of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information and Exhibit be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act.
