ARTICLE I - CONVERSION RIGHTS

 

The conversion privileges set forth in Article I shall remain in full force and effect immediately from the date hereof and until Note is paid in full regardless of the occurrence of an Event of Default but subject to Article I. At any time and from time to time after a default or Event of Default occurs solely due to the fact the Note is not retired on or before the Maturity Date, subject to the terms hereof and restrictions and limitations contained herein, the Holder shall have the right, at the Holder's sole option, to convert in whole or in part the outstanding and unpaid Principal Amount under this Note into shares of Common Stock. The Outstanding Balance of Note together with all unpaid interest accrued thereon and any other amounts payable hereunder, or such portion thereof, that has not previously been converted into common stock, of the Company (the “Common Stock”), if any, shall be payable in full on the Maturity Date. Should Borrower fail to eliminate any prohibitions under applicable law or the rules or regulations of any stock exchange, inter-dealer quotation system or other self-regulatory organization with jurisdiction over Borrower or any of it securities on Borrower's ability to issue shares of Common Stock, in lieu of any right to convert this Note, this will be considered an Event of Default under section 2.2 of the Note. The Holder shall have the right to convert the Outstanding Balance together with all unpaid interest accrued thereon of this Note into shares of the Borrower’s Common Stock as set forth below.

 

(a)Conversion Price. Subject to adjustment as set forth in this Note, the conversion price for each conversion shall be fifteen cents ($0.15) (The “Fixed Conversion Price”) "). (subject to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by the Borrower relating to the Borrower’s securities or the securities of any subsidiary of the Borrower, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar events). The Borrower shall be responsible for the fees of its transfer agent and all DTC fees associated with any such issuance. In the event of any dispute or discrepancy, the records of the Holder shall be controlling and determinative in the absence of manifest error. Holder shall be entitled to deduct $1,400.00 from the conversion amount in each Notice of Conversion to cover Holder’s deposit fees associated with each Notice of Conversion so long as each conversion is for at least $10,000.

 

(b) [Deleted].

 

(c) DTC Chill. If in the case that the Borrower’s Common Stock is “chilled” for deposit into the DTC system and only eligible for clearing deposit, then an additional 15% shall be added to the principal value of the note (under Holder’s and Borrower’s expectation that any principal amount increase will tack back to the Issue Date).

(d) Conversion. The Holder shall have the option, but shall not be required, to convert all or a portion of the Note into a number of fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock (the “Conversion Shares”). The number of Conversion Shares issuable upon a conversion hereunder shall be determined by the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the Outstanding Balance together with all unpaid interest accrued thereon of this Note to be converted by (y) the Conversion Price. The Company may deliver an objection to any Notice of Conversion within one Business Day of delivery of such Notice of Conversion. In the event of any dispute or discrepancy, the records of the Holder shall be controlling and determinative in the absence of manifest error. To effect conversions hereunder, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to the Company. Non ink-original Notice of conversion shall be required, nor shall any medallion guarantee (or other type of guarantee or notarization of any Notice of Conversion form be required.

 

(e) Mechanics of Conversion. As a condition to affecting the conversion set forth in Section 1.1(b) above, the Holder shall properly complete and deliver to the Company a Notice of Conversion, a form of which is annexed hereto as Exhibit B (“Conversion Notice” or Notice of Conversion”). The Notice of Conversion shall set forth the Outstanding Balance together with all unpaid interest accrued thereon of this Note to be converted and the date on which such conversion shall be affected (such date, the “Conversion Date”). If no Conversion Date is specified in a Notice of Conversion, the Conversion Date shall be the date that such Notice of Conversion is deemed delivered hereunder. Upon timely delivery to the Borrower of the Notice of Conversion, certificates evidencing that number of shares of Common Stock for the portion of the Note converted in accordance herewith shall be transmitted by the Company’s transfer agent to the Holder by crediting the account of the Holder’s broker with The Depository Trust Company through its Deposit / Withdrawal at Custodian system if the Company is then a participant in such system and either (A) there is an effective registration statement permitting the issuance of the Conversion Shares to, or resale of the Conversion Shares by, the Holder or (B) the shares are eligible for resale by the Holder without volume or manner-of-sale limitations pursuant to Rule 144, and otherwise by physical delivery to the address specified by the Holder in the Notice of Conversion by the date that is two Trading Days after the Conversion Date (such third day being the “Share Delivery Date”). The Borrower will not issue fraction shares or scrip representing fractions of shares upon conversion, but the Borrower will round the number of the shares up to the nearest whole share.

 

(f) Charges. Issuance of Common Stock to Holder, or any of its assignees, upon the conversion of this Note shall be made without charge to the Holder for any issuance fee, transfer tax, postage/mailing charge or any other expense with respect to the issuance of such Common Stock. Company shall pay all Transfer Agent fees incurred from the issuance of the Common Stock to Holder and acknowledges that this is a material obligation of this Note.

(h) Rescindment of a Notice of Conversion. If (i) the Borrower fails to respond to Holder within one business day from the date a Notice of Conversion is sent confirming the details of the Notice of Conversion, (ii) the Borrower fails to provide any of the shares of the Borrower’s Common Stock requested in the Notice of conversion within two business days from the date of receipt of the Note of Conversion, (iii) the Holder is unable to procure a legal opinion required to have the shares of the Borrower’s Common Stock issued unrestricted and/or deposited to sell for any reason related to the Borrower’s standing, (iv) the Holder is unable to deposit the shares of the Borrower’s Common Stock requested in the Notice of Conversion for any reason (v) at any time after a missed deadline, at the Holder’s sole discretion, (vi) if, within three business days of the transmittal of the Notice of Conversion, the common Stock has a closing bid which is 5% lower than that set forth in the Notice of Conversion or (vii) if OTC Markets changes the Borrower’s designation to ‘Limited Information’ (Yield), ‘No Information’ (Stop Sign), ‘Caveat Emptor’ (Skull & Crossbones), ‘Otc’, ‘Other OTC’ or ‘Grey Market’ (Exclamation Mark Sign) or other trading restriction on the day of or any day after the Conversion Date, then the Holder maintains the option and sole discretion to rescind the Notice of Conversion by sending a Notice of Rescindment.

 

1.2 Obligation to Deliver Conversion Shares Absolute; Certain Remedies.

 

(a)Obligation Absolute. The Company’s obligations to issue and deliver the Conversion Shares upon conversion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof, the recovery of any judgment against any Person or any action to enforce the same, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination, or any breach or alleged breach by the Holder or any other Person of any obligation to the Company or any violation or alleged violation of law by the Holder or any other Person, and irrespective of any other circumstance which might otherwise limit such obligation of the Company to the Holder in connection with the issuance of such Conversion Shares. The Company shall issue Conversion Shares or, if applicable, cash, upon a properly noticed conversion. In the event that the Holder of this Note shall elect to convert any or all of the Outstanding Balance hereof and accrued but unpaid interest thereon in accordance with the terms of this note, the Borrower may not refuse conversion based on any claim that the Holder or anyone associated or affiliated with the Holder has been engaged in any violation of law, agreement or for any other reason, unless an injunction from a court, on notice Holder, restraining and or enjoining conversion of all or part of this Note shall have been sought and obtained, and the Borrower posts a surety bond for the benefit of the Holder in the amount of two hundred percent of the Outstanding Balance of this Note, which is subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of litigation of the underlying dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to such Holder to the extent it obtains judgment. In the absence of such injunction, the Borrow shall issue conversion shares upon a properly notices conversion. All payments under this Note (whether made by the Borrower or any other person) to or for the account of the Holder hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without reduction by reason of any present and future income, stamp, registration and other taxes, levies, duties, costs and charges whatsoever imposed, assessed, levied or collected by the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein, together with interest thereon and penalties with respect thereto, if any on or in respect of this Note (such taxes, levies, duties, costs and charges being herein collectively called “Taxes”). The Borrower shall not be required to pay any tax which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issue and delivery of shares of Common Stock or other securities or property on conversion of this Note in a name other than that of the Holder (or in street name), and the Borrower shall not be required to issue or deliver any such shares or other securities or property unless and until the person or persons (other than the Holder or the custodian in whose street name such shares are to be held for the Holder’s account) requesting the issuance thereof shall have paid to the Borrower the amount of any such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Borrower that such tax has been paid.

(b) Failure to Deliver Common Stock Prior to Delivery Date. Without in any way limiting the Holder’s right to pursue other remedies, including actual damages and/or equitable relief, the parties to this Note agree that if delivery of the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note is not delivered as required by the Share Delivery Date (a “Conversion Default”), Holder, at any time prior to selling all of those shares, may rescind any portion, in whole or in part, of that particular conversion attributable to the unsold shares and have the rescinded conversion amount returned to the Outstanding Balance with the rescinded conversion shares returned to the Borrower (under Holder’s and Borrower’s expectations that any returned conversion amounts will tack back to the original date of the Note). In addition, for each conversion, in the event that the shares are not delivered as required by this Note by the Share Delivery Date, the Borrower shall pay the “Conversion Default Payment”. Such cash amount shall be paid to the Holder by the fifth day of the month following the month in which it has accrued (the “Conversion Default Payment Due Date”). In the event such cash amount is not received by the Holder by the Conversion Default Payment Due Date, at the option of the Holder (without notice to the Borrower), the Conversion Default Payment shall be added to the Outstanding Balance of this Note and will tack back to the original date of the Note and interest shall accrue thereon in accordance with the terms of this Note. If the Company does not deliver the Conversion Shares underlying this Note from its transfer agent after receipt of a Notice of Conversion within TWO (2) Business days following the period allowed for any objection, the Company shall be responsible for any differential in the value of the converted shares underlying this Note between the value of the closing price on the date the shares should have been delivered and the date the shares are delivered. In addition, if the Company fails to timely (within 72 hours, 3 business days), issue a treasury order to its transfer agent or otherwise cause to be delivered, the Conversion Shares per the instructions of the Holder, free and clear of all legends in legal free trading form, subject to all applicable securities laws, the Company shall allow Holder to add two (2) days to the look-back (the mechanism used to obtain the conversion price along with discount) for each day the Company fails to timely (within 72 hours, 3 business days)) deliver shares, on the next conversion.

 

(c) Reliance on Note Register. Prior to due presentment for transfer to the Company of this Note, the Company and any agent of the Company may treat the Person in whose name this Note is duly registered on the Note Register as the owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment as herein provided and for all other purposes, whether or not this Note is overdue. In the event the Holder assigns the Holder’s rights and entitlements under this Note to another Person (the “Assignee”), the Company shall amend the Note Register only upon receiving authorization to do so from each of the Holder and the Assignee.

 

(d) Adjustment. The number and kind of shares or other securities to be issued upon conversion determined pursuant to Section 1.1(b), shall be subject to adjustment, from time to time, upon the happening of certain events while this conversion right remains outstanding, as follows:

 

(e) Reservation of Shares. The Borrower represents, warrants, covenants and agrees at all times to have authorized and reserve 10,000,000 shares as soon as the note is signed (the “Reserved Amount”), allocated as follows: (i) 5,000,000 shares in the name of the Holder for issuance upon the Company’s default in repaying the principal amount owing under this Note that is not remedied in accordance with the terms herein; (ii) 1,666,667 shares in the name of the Holder for issuance upon the Company’s default in repaying the interest owing under this Note that is not remedied in accordance with the terms herein; and (iii) 3,333,333 shares in the name of the Holder for issuance upon conversion herein. The Reserved Amount shall be increased from time to time as required to ensure compliance with this provision. The Borrower represents and warrants and covenants and agrees that upon issuance, if applicable, such shares will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. In addition, if the Borrower shall issue any securities or make any change to its capital structure which would change the number of shares of Common Stock into which this Note shall be convertible at the then current Conversion Price, the Borrower shall at the same time make proper provision so that thereafter there shall be a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock authorized and reserved, free from preemptive rights, for conversion of this Note. The Borrower (i) acknowledges that it has irrevocably instructed its transfer agent to issue shares of the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note pursuant to EXHIBIT C: IRREVOCABLE INSTRUCTIONS which forms a part of this Note, and (ii) agrees that its issuance of this Note shall constitute full authority to its officers and agents who are charged with the duty of issuing the necessary shares of Common Stock in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Note. Should any of the above events in this section occur, Company will have three business days to increase the reserve with their transfer agent or this will constitute an Event of Default. The Reserved Amount detailed in this Note is specific to this Note and it is in addition to any and all other shares reserved for the Holder in other notes or agreements. Further, it does not amend nor affect any previous Reserved Amount for the Holder. If at any time the Borrower does not maintain the Reserved Amount sixty days after the issuance of the note, it shall constitute an Event of Default. Holder shall not be required to fund this note, until the proper amount of shares are reserved for this Note under the provisions of this Note or Exhibit C: Irrevocable Instructions. The Borrower will instruct its transfer agent to provide the outstanding share information to the Holder in connection with its conversions. The Borrower (i) acknowledges that it has irrevocably instructed its transfer agent to issue certificates for the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note, and (ii) agrees that its issuance of this Note shall constitute full authority to its officers and agents who are charged with the duty of executing stock certificates to execute and issue the necessary certificates for shares of Common Stock in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Note. If, at any time the Borrower does not maintain the Reserved Amount it will be considered an Event of Default under the Note, and the then outstanding principal due under this Note shall increase by Fifteen Thousand United States Dollars.

(f) Insufficient Authorized Shares. If, notwithstanding other provisions of this Note and not in limitation thereof, at any time while any of the Notes remain outstanding, the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unreserved shares of Common Stock to satisfy its obligation to reserve for issuance upon conversion of the Notes at least a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Required Reserve Amount (an "Authorized Share Failure"), then the Company shall immediately take all action necessary to increase the Company's authorized shares of Common Stock to an amount sufficient to allow the Company to reserve the Required Reserve Amount for the Notes then outstanding. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, as soon as practicable after the date of the occurrence of an Authorized Share Failure, but in no event later than sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such Authorized Share Failure, the Company shall hold a meeting of its stockholders for the approval of an increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock. In connection with such meeting, the Company shall provide each stockholder with a proxy statement and shall use its best efforts to solicit its stockholders' approval of such increase in authorized shares of Common Stock and to cause its board of directors to recommend to the stockholders that they approve such proposal. In the event that the Company is prohibited from issuing shares of Common Stock upon any conversion due to the failure by the Company to have sufficient shares of Common Stock available out of the authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock (such unavailable number of shares of Common Stock, the "Authorization Failure Shares"), in lieu of delivering such Authorization Failure Shares to the Holder, the Company shall pay cash in exchange for the redemption of such portion of the Conversion Amount convertible into such Authorized Failure Shares at a price equal to the sum of (i) the product of (x) such number of Authorization Failure Shares and (y) the greatest Closing Sale Price of the Common Stock on any Trading Day during the period commencing on the date the Holder delivers the applicable Conversion Notice with respect to such Authorization Failure Shares to the Company and ending on the date of such issuance and payment under this section to the extent the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of Authorization Failure Shares, any brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket expenses, if any, of the Holder incurred in connection therewith. If, at any time the Borrower does not maintain the Reserved Amount it will be considered an Event of Default under the Note, and the then outstanding principal due under this Note shall increase by Fifteen Thousand United States Dollars.

 

(g) [Deleted].

 

(h) Pro Rata Conversion; Disputes. In the event of a dispute as to the number of shares of common Stock issuable to the Holder in connection with a conversion of this Note, the Company shall issue to the Holder the number of shares of commons Stock not in dispute and resolve such dispute in accordance section 5.18.

 

(i) Book Entry upon Conversion. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon conversion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to the Borrower unless the entire unpaid principal amount of this Note is so converted. The Holder and the Borrower shall maintain records showing the principal amount so converted and the dates of such conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Borrower, so as not to require physical surrender of this Note upon each such conversion. In the event of any dispute or discrepancy, such records of the Borrower shall, prima facie, be controlling and determinative in the absence of manifest error. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any portion of this Note is converted as aforesaid, the Holder may not transfer this Note unless the Holder first physically surrenders this Note to the Borrower, whereupon the Borrower will forthwith issue and deliver upon the order of the Holder a new Note of like tenor, registered as the Holder (upon payment by the Holder of any applicable transfer taxes) may request, representing in the aggregate the remaining unpaid principal amount of this Note. The Holder and any assignee, by acceptance of this Note, acknowledge and agree that, by reason of the provisions of this paragraph, following conversion of a portion of this Note, the unpaid and unconverted principal amount of this Note represented by this Note may be less than the amount stated on the face hereof.

1.3 Effect of Certain Events.

 

(a) Purchase Rights. If, at any time when this Note is issued and outstanding, the Borrower issues any convertible securities or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property (the “Purchase Rights”) pro rata to the record holders of any class of Common Stock, then the Holder of this Note will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which such Holder could have acquired if such Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Note (without regard to any limitations on conversion contained herein) immediately before the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of Common Stock are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights.

  

(b) Adjustment Due to Non-DWAC Eligibility. If, at any time when this Note is issued and outstanding thereafter, the Holder delivers a Notice of Conversion and at such time all DWAC Eligible Conditions are not then satisfied, the Borrower shall deliver certificated Conversion Shares to the Holder pursuant to Section 2.1(c) and the Non-DWAC Eligible Adjustment Amount shall be added to the Outstanding Balance of this Note, without limiting any other rights of the Holder under this Note or the other Transaction Documents.

 

(c) Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of the Conversion Price or the addition of the Non- DWAC Eligible Adjustment Amount to the Outstanding Balance as a result of the events described in this Note, the Borrower, the Non- DWAC Eligible Adjustment Amount shall be added to the Outstanding Balance of this Note, without limiting any other rights of the Holder under this Note or the other Transaction Documents.

 

(h) Deleted.

1.4 Method of Conversion. Note may be converted by the Holder, in whole or in part, as described in Section 1.1(a) hereof. Upon partial conversion of Note, a new Note containing the same date and provisions of Note shall, at the request of the Holder, be issued by the Borrower to the Holder for the principal balance of Note and interest which shall not have been converted or paid.

 

1.5 Limitations on Conversion. Holder shall not effect any conversion of this Note or otherwise issue any shares of Common Stock pursuant hereto, to the extent (but only to the extent) that the Holder or any of its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the Common Stock. The Holder, upon not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Company, may increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provision of this section. No prior inability to convert this Note, or to issue shares of Common Stock, pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility. For purposes of this paragraph, beneficial ownership and all determinations and calculations (including, without limitation, with respect to calculations of percentage ownership) shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The provisions of this paragraph shall be implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this paragraph to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Maximum Percentage beneficial ownership limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such Maximum Percentage limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor Holder of this Note. The holders of Common Stock shall be third party beneficiaries of this paragraph and the Company may not waive this paragraph without the consent of holders of a majority of its Common Stock. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall within two (2) Trading Days confirm orally to the Holder and, if requested, in writing to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding, including by virtue of any prior conversion or exercise of convertible or exercisable securities into Common Stock, including, without limitation, pursuant to this Note. Should the Company fail to eliminate any prohibitions under applicable law or the rules or regulations of any stock exchange, inter-dealer quotation system or other self-regulatory organization with jurisdiction over the Company or any of its securities on Company's ability to issue shares of Common Stock, in lieu of any right to convert this Note as described in this section 2.4, this will be an Event of Default under Section 3.2 of the Note.

5.13 Savings Clause. In case any provision of this Note is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be excessive in scope or otherwise invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be adjusted rather than voided, if possible, so that it is enforceable to the maximum extent possible, and the validity and enforceability of the remaining provision of this Note will not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. In no event shall the amount of interest paid hereunder exceed the maximum rate of interest on the unpaid principal balance hereof allowable by applicable law. If any sum is collected in excess of the applicable maximum rate, the excess collected shall be applied to reduce the principal debt. If the interest actually collected hereunder is still in excess of the applicable maximum rate, the interest rate shall be reduced so as not to exceed the maximum allowable under law.

 

5.14 Attorneys’ Fees and Cost of Collection. In the event of any action at law or in equity to enforce or interpret the terms of this Note or any of the other documents related to this financing, the parties agree that the party who is awarded the most money shall be deemed the prevailing party for all purposes and shall therefore be entitled to an additional award of the full amount of the attorneys’ fees and expenses paid by such prevailing party in connection with the litigation and/or dispute without reduction or apportionment based upon the individual claims or defenses giving rise to the fees and expenses. Nothing herein shall restrict or impair a court’s power to award fees and expenses for frivolous or bad faith pleading.

 

5.15 Fees and Charges. The parties acknowledge and agree that upon the Borrower’s failure to comply with the provisions of this Note, the Holder’s damages would be uncertain and difficult (if not impossible) to accurately estimate because of the parties’ inability to predict future interest rates, the Holder’s increased risk, and the uncertainty of the availability of a suitable substitute investment opportunity for the Holder, among other reasons. Accordingly, any fees, charges, and interest due under this Note are intended by the parties to be, and shall be deemed, a reasonable estimate of the Holder’s actual loss of its investment opportunity and not a penalty, and shall not be deemed in any way to limit any other right or remedy Holder may have hereunder, at law or in equity. Each time the Company incorrectly challenges a conversion request or fails to provide the current issued and outstanding to the Holder within five business days of the request, the Outstanding Balance of this Note shall increase by two thousand dollars. If within ten business days after the Clearing Date, the Common Stock has a trading price that is lower than that set forth in the Notice of Conversion, the Conversion price will be reset and reduced to the lowest traded price during that period. The Clearing Date is the date that the shares are in the brokerage account of the Investor and approved for sale by the compliance department of the brokerage firm holding the shares.

Exhibit A1

  

Definitions

  

“Closing Bid Price” means, for any security as of any date, the closing bid price on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (the “OTCBB”), or other applicable primary trading market as reported by a reliable reporting service designated by the Holder (i.e. Bloomberg) or, if the OTCBB is not the principal trading market for such security, the closing price of such security on the principal securities exchange or trading market where such security is listed or traded or, if no closing bid price of such security is available in any of the foregoing manners, the average of the closing prices of any market makers for such security that are listed in the “pink sheets” by the OTC Markets Group, Inc. (formally Pink Sheets LLC). If the Closing Bid Price cannot be calculated for such security on such date in the manner provided above, the Closing Bid Price shall be the fair market value as mutually determined by the Borrower and the Holder in order to determine the Conversion Price of such Note. In the event that a bid price does not exist for one of the twenty days used to calculate the Market Price, of it the Company loses DTC eligibility, or gets "chilled for deposit", then instead of using zero, the Conversion Price shall be .00001.

 

“Conversion Default Payment” Without in any way limiting the Holder’s right to pursue other remedies, including actual damages and/or equitable relief, the parties agree that if delivery of the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note is not delivered by the Share Delivery Date the Borrower shall pay to the Holder the Conversion Default Payment. Conversion Default Payment shall mean $2,000 per day in cash, for each day beyond the Share Delivery Date that the Borrower fails to deliver such Common Stock until the Borrower issues and delivers a certificate to the Holder or credits the Holder's account with the Borrower’s transfer agent for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon such Holder's conversion of any Conversion Amount (under Holder's and Borrower's expectation that any damages will tack back to the Issue Date). Such cash amount shall be paid to Holder by the fifth day of the month following the month in which it has accrued or, at the option of the Holder (by written notice to the Borrower by the first day of the month following the month in which it has accrued), shall be added to the principal amount of this Note, in which event interest shall accrue thereon in accordance with the terms of this Note and such additional principal amount shall be convertible into Common Stock in accordance with the terms of this Note. The Borrower agrees that the right to convert is a valuable right to the Holder. The damages resulting from a failure, attempt to frustrate, and interference with such conversion right are difficult if not impossible to qualify.

 

Accordingly, the parties acknowledge that the liquidated damages provision contained in this Note are justified.

 

"Event of Default Effect" shall mean (a) the Outstanding Balance, plus accrued but unpaid interest, liquidated damages, fees and other amounts owing in respect thereof through the date of acceleration shall immediately increase to one and twenty five percent of the Outstanding Balance (except with respect to Sections 2(m), 2(n), 2(t), 2(u), 2(w), 2(bb), 2(ll) and 2(mm) and 2(vv), in which case the one hundred and twenty five percent shall be replaced with one hundred and fifty percent) immediately prior to the occurrence of the Event of Default and such increase in the Outstanding Balance shall tack back to the date of the original Note, (b) this Note shall then accrue interest at the Default Interest Rate which shall be equal to the lesser of twenty four and a half percent per annum or the maximum rate permitted under applicable law, and Holder shall receive five million (5,000,000) shares of Common Stock (collectively, the “Default Effects”). Interest calculated hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve (12) thirty (30) day months, shall compound daily and shall be payable in accordance with the terms of this Note. The remedies under this note shall be cumulative and automatically added to the principal value of the Note. By acceptance hereof, Holder hereby warrants and represents to Borrower that Holder has no intention of charging a usurious rate of interest. Should any interest or other charges paid by Borrowers result in the computation or earning of interest in excess of the highest rate permissible under applicable law, any and all such excess shall be and the same is hereby waived by the Holder hereof. Holder shall make adjustments in the Note as applicable, as necessary to ensure that Borrower will not be required to pay further interest in excess of the amount permitted by applicable law. All such excess all be automatically credited against and in reduction of the outstanding principal balance. The Default Effects shall automatically apply upon the occurrence of an Event of Default without the need for any party to give any notice or take any other action. The Holder need not provide, and the Borrower hereby waives, any presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind regarding an Event of Default. Further, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default, the Holder may by written notice to the Borrower declare the entire Outstanding Balance immediately due and payable without presentment, demand, protest or any other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived, anything contained herein or in the other Transaction Documents to the contrary notwithstanding; provided, however, that upon the occurrence or existence of any Event of Default, immediately and without notice, all outstanding obligations payable by the Borrower hereunder shall automatically become immediately due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or any other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived, anything contained herein or in the Transaction Documents to the contrary (“Automatic Acceleration”). The Holder shall retain all rights under this Note and the Transaction Documents, including the ability to convert the then Outstanding Balance of this Note at all times following the occurrence of an Automatic Acceleration until the entire then Outstanding Balance has been paid in full. If one or more of the “Events of Default” as described in the Agreement shall occur, the Borrower agrees to pay all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, which the Holder may incur in collecting any amount due under, or enforcing any terms of, this Note. The Borrower covenants that until all amounts due under this Note are paid in full, by conversion or otherwise, the Borrower shall notify Holder in writing within one day of any of the above Events of Default. If the Holder shall commence an action or proceeding to enforce any provision of this Note, including, without limitation, engaging an attorney, then if the Holder prevails in such action, the older shall be reimburse by the Company for its attorney’s fees and other costs and expenses incurred in the investigation, preparation and prosecution of such action or proceeding. If the Holder shall commence an action or proceeding to enforce any provisions of this Note, including, without limitation, engaging an attorney, then if the Holder prevails in such action, the Holder shall be reimbursed by the Borrower for its attorneys' fees and other costs and expenses incurred in the investigation, preparation and prosecution of such action or proceeding.

In any such case, Holder will use reasonable efforts to timely deposit such certificates in its brokerage account after it receives them and cause such restrictive legends to be removed, and, without limiting any other provision hereof, Borrower agrees to fully cooperate with Holder in accomplishing the same. Any fees charged to Holder for the stock being Non-DWAC Eligible shall be paid by the Borrower.
