The following additional provisions are incorporated into and made a part
of the attached lease:

A. * LESSOR, at LESSOR's cost, shall modify the leased premises according to a
mutually agreed upon plan attached hereto before or about the time LESSEE
takes possession of the leased premises.

B. LESSEE acknowledges and agrees that the electric service upgrade to 800A,
120/208V that LESSEE has requested may not be completed by Boston Edison as
of the commencement date of the lease. Notwithstanding any such delay,
LESSEE's obligation to pay monthly rent shall commence as of the
commencement date of the lease without any abatement.

C. Upon completion of the modifications provided for herein, LESSOR shall
carefully remeasure the entire leased premises using LESSOR's standard
methodology, and if the size does not equal the total number of square feet
set forth in the initial paragraph of this lease, LESSOR shall notify
LESSEE in writing of the actual revised square footage and the
corresponding increase or decrease in rent, based on the same rate per
square foot used in this lease.

D. * Provided LESSEE is not then in default of this lease or in arrears of any
rent or invoice payment, LESSEE shall have the right to extend this lease,
including all terms, conditions, escalations, etc., for one additional
period of five (5) years ("the extended lease term") by serving LESSOR with
written notice of its desire to so extend the lease. The time for serving
such written notice shall be not more than 12 months or less than 6 months
prior to the expiration of the initial lease term. Time is of the essence.

E. * Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1, annual base rent during the
extended lease term shall be recalculated at LESSOR's published annual
rental rate as of the commencement of the extended lease term for similar
space, and the base month from which to determine the amount of each "Cost
of Living" adjustment during the extended lease term shall then be changed
to January 2004. The "comparison" month shall be changed to November 2004,
and the first adjustment during the extended lease term shall take place
with the rent due on January 1, 2005. Section 1 shall continue to apply in
all other respects during the extended lease term.

F. * Prior to the termination date of this lease, LESSEE may remove the
telephone system, copying machines, electronic, copying, computer and
similar data equipment and lines supplied and installed by LESSEE if LESSEE
has satisfactorily complied with all other conditions of this lease and if
LESSEE repairs any and all damage resulting from such removal and restores
the leased premises to their condition prior to the installation of said
equipment, all on a timely basis prior to the end of the lease term. Time
is of the essence.

G. * LESSOR hereby represents that, to the best of its knowledge and belief,
the use of the leased premises for the purposes set forth in Section 3 is
permitted under the Massachusetts General Laws and the Wobum Zoning
Ordinance. In the event, however, that the City of Wobum issues a citation
to LESSEE prohibiting the use of the leased premises for said purposes and
said citation is adjudged valid after LESSEE has exhausted all applicable
appeals, then LESSEE may cancel this lease by serving LESSOR with 30 days
prior written notice to that effect, and neither party shall have any
further obligation to the other. Cancellation of the lease shall be
LESSEE's exclusive remedy for any breach by LESSOR of this representation
or otherwise in connection with such municipal action.

H. * In the event that the entire balance of rent is accelerated pursuant to
Section 20 above on account of the nonpayment of any sums due under this
lease, provided LESSEE then fully cures such nonpayment and pays any other
sums that are then due (including LESSOR's legal fees and costs) prior to
the entry of a final judgment for the full accelerated rent, LESSOR agrees
to reinstate the lease in full and to waive the acceleration of the rent
(without waiving any rights which may arise with respect to any subsequent
default). Time is of the essence.
