On August 30, 2023, Kura Oncology, Inc.

The Amendment extends the term of the Lease by seven years, such that the term will now expire on July 31, 2031 (such additional seven years, the “Extended Term”). The minimum rent payable by the Company during the Extended Term will be approximately $108,900 per month for the first year of the Extended Term, which amount will increase by 2.0% per year over the Extended Term. Pursuant to the Amendment, the Landlord shall provide the Tenant with a (i) rent credit in the total amount of approximately $544,500 to be applied as a credit, in equal monthly installments, against the rent payments due for the months of August 2023 through July 2024, inclusive and (ii) tenant improvement allowance in an amount not to exceed $827,050, in each case subject to certain conditions.
