Item 1.01Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On January 22, 2019, Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with TREA PACIFIC PLAZA, LLC (the “Landlord”), with an effective date of January 10, 2019, for approximately 25,332 square feet of additional general administrative office space located at 10935 Vista Sorrento Parkway, San Diego, California (the “Pacific Plaza Building”).


Subject to limited exceptions, the initial Lease term is expected to commence on the later of (i) March 1, 2019, or (ii) the date on which the Landlord substantially completes certain specified work related to tenant improvements (the “Commencement Date”), and will expire 42 months from the first day of the first full month following the Commencement Date (such period, the “Base Term”). The Company will also have a one-time option (the “Extension Option”) to extend the term of the Lease for a period of five years by delivering prior written notice to the Landlord in accordance with the terms of the Lease.


The initial monthly base rent for the premises is approximately $92,000 per month and will increase annually by 3.0% beginning on each annual anniversary of the Commencement Date. The monthly base rent includes the Company’s proportionate share of certain ongoing operating expenses throughout the duration of the Lease. No base rent, other than operating expenses, will be due under the Lease for months two through seven of the Base Term.

Future minimum payments under the Lease, which includes reimbursement of certain Landlord operating expenses, will be as follows:
