Item 1.01         Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 23, 2022, DiaMedica USA Inc. (the “Tenant”), a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of DiaMedica Therapeutics Inc., a corporation existing under the laws of British Columbia, Canada (the “Company”), entered into an office lease (the “Lease”) with Medica Services Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Landlord”), whereby the Tenant agreed to lease approximately 6,175 square feet at 301 Carlson Parkway, Suite 210, Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA 55305 (the “Premises”). The Lease has an initial term of five years and five months, commencing on September 1, 2022, and the Tenant has the option to extend the Lease for an additional five years. The Company intends to relocate its principal executive offices, together with its research and development operations, to the Premises on September 1, 2022 following the expiration of the Tenant’s current lease in August 2022.
Under the Lease, the Tenant has agreed to pay rent, after an initial five-month abatement period, in an initial amount equal to approximately $9,000 per month, plus its pro rata share of operating expenses and real estate taxes. The Lease contains customary representations, warranties, covenants, indemnification provisions, default provisions, and other provisions.
As an inducement to the Landlord to enter into the Lease with the Tenant, on June 22, 2022, the Company entered into a lease guaranty agreement (the “Lease Guarantee Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to fulfill and perform or cause the Tenant to fulfill and perform all of the terms and every payment, covenant and condition which the Tenant is required to make or perform under the Lease. The Lease Guarantee Agreement terminates once full payment of all sums due under the Lease and full performance of all terms, covenants and conditions therein have been kept, observed or performed by the Tenant.
The foregoing summary description of the Lease and the Lease Guaranty Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Lease and the Lease Guaranty Agreement, which are attached as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
