Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On October 10, 2023, AeroVironment, Inc. (“AeroVironment”) entered into a First Amendment to Lease (the “First Amendment”) with an effective date of September 10, 2023, to amend its existing lease (the “Lease”) with BCORE DEFENDER CA1W03, LLC (the “Landlord”) for certain premises located at 85 Moreland Road, Simi Valley, CA 93065 (“Premises”). The First Amendment extends the term of the Lease, which is currently scheduled to expire on June 30, 2025, for a period of forty-seven (47) months to expire on May 31, 2029. The base monthly rent during the extended term for the Premises will be as follows:


Period  Monthly Base Rent 
11/1/23 – 11/30/23  $115,591.30 
12/1/23 – 12/31/23  $0.00 
1/1/24 – 10/31/24  $115,591.30 
11/1/24 – 10/31/25  $120,214.95 
11/1/25 – 10/31/26  $125,023.55 
11/1/26 – 10/31/27  $130,024.49 
11/1/27 – 10/31/28  $135,225.47 
11/1/28 – 5/31/29  $140,634.49 


Pursuant to the optional extension term in the First Amendment, AeroVironment will have the option to extend the term for one (1) period of five (5) years (the “Extension Option”). The base rent attributable to the Premises for the Extension Option will be equal to the greater of (i) the Base Rent payable in the immediately preceding calendar month, increased by 4%, and (ii) the fair market rental value of the Premises as of the date of exercise of the Extension Option.


The foregoing description of the First Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of such document, which will be filed as an exhibit to AeroVironment’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending October 28, 2023.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
