RECITALS A. Landlord and Edix Corporation, a Delaware corporation, as predecessor in interest to Tenant, have previously entered into that certain Office Lease Agreement dated as of October 8, 2001 (the "Lease"), which Lease covers certain premises consisting of approximately thirty-seven thousand nine hundred (37,900) rentable square feet located on the fourth floor at 140 Fountain Parkway St. Petersburg, Florida 33716 (the "Premises").

LEASE MODIFICATIONS (a) As of the date hereof, Landlord shall be authorized to divide the Premises by demising walls to separate the Premises from the Released Premises, and the Lease, other than rent, is modified as follows: (i) Tenant's Surrender of Released Premises. Tenant hereby surrenders the Released Premises to Landlord for purposes of constructing the demising walls and/or otherwise preparing the Released Premises for Third Party Tenant's use and occupancy. (ii) Monthly Base Rent. Notwithstanding Tenant's surrender of the Released Premises, the Monthly Base Rent, payable by Tenant under the Lease remains unaffected until the Effective Date.
