On November 18, 2004, Stereotaxis, Inc. (the Company) and Cortex West Development I, LLC (Cortex) entered into an office lease agreement under which the Company will lease space in a new building to be constructed by Cortex. Once the building is completed, the Company will move its current St. Louis, Missouri operations to the leased space in the new building. The lease for the new premises is effective December 1, 2005 and has a term of ten years, with two renewal options of three years each. The minimum annual rental under the terms of the lease ranges from approximately $705,000 in 2006 to approximately $1,177,000 in 2015, including rent for expansion space provided for in the lease. The 2006 amount is not materially different than the amount that would have been incurred on terms consistent with the Company's current lease arrangement.
