Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
As previously disclosed, during the third quarter of 2020, Blackbaud, Inc. (the "Company") adjusted its workforce strategy to provide more flexibility for its employees to work remotely when its offices reopen. This change is expected to create efficiencies within the Company's real estate strategy as it optimizes its footprint and shifts toward more collaborative workspaces within its offices.
On November 4, 2020, the Company and HP 2000DI, LLC, a Georgia limited liability company (the “Landlord”), entered into a Termination of Triple Net Lease and Mutual Release Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”) to terminate that certain Triple Net Lease Agreement, by and between the Company and the Landlord, dated October 1, 2008, as as amended by that certain Lease Amendment and Remediation Agreement dated March 20, 2013, as further amended by that certain Second Amendment to Triple Net Lease Agreement dated June 27, 2013, and as assigned to the Landlord by Duck Pond Creek – SPE, LLC, predecessor in interest to the Landlord (as so amended and assigned, the “Lease”) for the property located at 2000 Daniel Island Drive, Charleston, South Carolina, 29492.
The Termination Agreement provides that the term of the Lease with respect to the entire leased premises will terminate effective as of 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2020 (the "Termination Date"). The Company will pay the Landlord a one-time termination fee equal to $14,759,500 by January 5, 2021 in connection with the early termination of the Lease. The Company will continue to pay Base Rent and Additional Rent under the Lease (including all real estate taxes due for the calendar year 2020) and otherwise comply with the terms of the Lease through the Termination Date. Prior to the execution of the Termination Agreement, the Lease had been scheduled to expire on September 30, 2023.
The effectiveness of the Termination Agreement is subject to certain conditions, including (i) the Landlord obtaining written consent to the Termination Agreement from the lender holding a mortgage over the leased premises; (ii) the Company and the subtenant of the leased premises agreeing to the termination of the sublease or the Landlord and the subtenant entering into a lease for a portion of the leased premises; and (iii) the Company delivering to the Landlord evidence that it has terminated another sublease for a portion of the leased premises. If any of these conditions has not been satisfied by December 15, 2020 despite good faith, commercially reasonable efforts of the responsible party to do so, either the Landlord or the Company may terminate the Termination Agreement and the Lease shall continue to remain in full force and effect.
The foregoing description of the Termination Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Termination Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2020.
