Effective January 31, 2019, Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) and Advent Key West, LLC (the “Landlord”) entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) for approximately 136,016 square feet for the Company’s new headquarters to be located at 9715 and 9717 Key West Avenue, Rockville, Maryland (the “Premises”).


The term of the Lease commences upon Landlord tendering possession of the Premises, with a fully executed lease termination with the prior tenant, which date is estimated to be on or about February 1, 2019 (the “Commencement Date”), and shall continue until April 30, 2034, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of the Lease (the “Lease Term”).


Fixed rent with respect to the Premises shall commence on the Commencement Date. The initial fixed rental rate is $195,523 per month for the first 12 months, which rate will automatically increase by 2% on each anniversary of the Commencement Date. In the event the Commencement date of the Lease is any date other than February 1, 2019, then the Company and the Landlord will enter into an amendment of the Lease to adjust the rental rate. Under the terms of the Lease, the Company is required to provide a security deposit of $195,523 and will be required to pay all utility charges for the Premises and its pro rata share of any operating expenses and real estate taxes.
