Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 6, 2011, we entered into an office lease agreement (the “Lease”) with Long Ridge Office Portfolio, L.P. for approximately 21,182 square feet of office space in Deerfield, Illinois, which was effective as of August 31, 2011. The initial term of the Lease is for approximately six and one-half years, commencing on December 1, 2011 and expiring on June 30, 2018. The minimum rent payable by us will initially be approximately $29,567 per month during the first year and will increase each year during the initial term, up to approximately $34,863 per month after the sixth year. We have the option to extend the Lease for an additional five-year term, which would commence upon the expiration of the initial term. In the event we choose to extend the term of the Lease, the minimum monthly rent payable for the additional term will be determined according to the then-prevailing market rate.

The foregoing summary of the Lease does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Lease, which will be attached as an exhibit to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.


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.
