Pursuant to the Lease Agreement dated November 22, 2011 by and between Quanterix Corporation (the “Company”) and King 113 Hartwell LLC (“Landlord”), as amended on August 22, 2014 (the “Lease”), the Company notified the Landlord of its intent to sublease all of the premises subject to the Lease from June 1, 2019 until the end of the term of the Lease, June 30, 2020 (the “Recapture Period”).  Under the terms of the Lease, Landlord had the right to terminate the Lease for the Recapture Period by providing notice to the Company.  On November 12, 2018, Landlord notified the Company that it was exercising this right.  Accordingly, the Lease will terminate as of May 31, 2019.  There are no early termination penalties incurred by the Company due to this termination.

The Company is expecting to move to this space late first quarter of 2019 but no later than April 1, 2019.
