The execution, delivery and performance by Investor of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement have
been duly authorized by all necessary company or similar action on the part of Investor. Each Transaction Document to which it is a party has been, or will be, duly executed by Investor, and when delivered by Investor in accordance with the terms hereof, will constitute the valid and legally binding obligation of Investor, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, except (a) as limited by general equitable principles and applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, (b) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies, and (c) insofar as indemnification and contribution provisions may be limited by applicable law.
2.Experience of Investor. Investor, either alone or together with its representatives, has such knowledge, sophistication and experience in business and financial matters so as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment in the Shares, and has so evaluated the merits and risks of such investment. Investor is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Shares and, at the present time, is able to afford a complete loss of such investment.
A.Disclosure and Publicity. Company will provide to Investor for review and approval prior to filing or issuing any current, periodic or public report, registration statement, press release, public statement or communication relating to or referencing Investor, any Transaction Documents or the transactions contemplated thereby, any such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.
B.No Non-Public Information. Company covenants and agrees that neither it nor any other Person acting on its behalf will, provide Investor or its agents or counsel with any information that Company believes or reasonably should believe will constitute material non-public information after Closing. On and after Closing, neither Investor nor any Affiliate of Investor will have any duty of trust or confidence that is owed directly, indirectly, or derivatively, to Company or the stockholders of Company, or to any other Person who is the source of material non-public information regarding Company. Company understands and confirms that Investor will be relying on the foregoing in effecting transactions in securities of Company, including without limitation sales of the Shares.
C.Indemnification of Investor.
1.Obligation to Indemnify. Subject to the provisions of this Section IV.C, Company will indemnify and hold Investor, its Affiliates, managers and advisors, and each of their officers, directors, shareholders, partners, employees, representatives, agents and attorneys, and any person who controls Investor within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act (collectively, “Investor Parties” and each a “Investor Party”), harmless from any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, claims, contingencies, damages, reasonable costs and expenses, including all judgments, amounts paid in settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation (collectively, “Losses”) that any Investor Party may suffer or incur as a result of or relating to (a) any breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by Company in this Agreement or in the other Transaction
Documents, (b) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Registration Statement, Prospectus, Prospectus Supplement, or any information incorporated by reference therein, or arising out of or based upon any omission or alleged omission to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, (c) any action by Company or a creditor or stockholder of Company who is not an Affiliate of an Investor Party, challenging the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, or (d) any action or proceeding based upon, connected with, or otherwise arising out of or in any way relating to any Transaction Documents, the resale of Conversion Shares or any shares of Common Stock by Investor, any requirement that any of the Released Parties was or is required to register as a dealer under federal securities laws, and all matters related thereto; provided, however, that Company will not be obligated to indemnify any Investor Party for any Losses finally adjudicated to be caused solely by (i) a false statement of material fact contained within written information provided by such Investor Party expressly for the purpose of including it in the applicable Registration Statement, Prospectus, Prospectus Supplement, or (ii) such Investor Party’s unexcused material breach of an express provision of this Agreement or another Transaction Document.
2.Procedure for Indemnification. If any action will be brought against an Investor Party in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to this Agreement, such Investor Party will promptly notify Company in writing, and Company will have the right to assume the defense thereof with counsel of its own choosing. Investor Parties will have the right to employ separate counsel in any such action and participate in the defense thereof, but the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel will be at the expense of Investor Parties except to the extent that (a) the employment thereof has been specifically authorized by Company in writing, (b) Company has failed after a reasonable period of time to assume such defense and to employ counsel or (c) in such action there is, in the reasonable opinion of such separate counsel, a material conflict with respect to the dispute in question on any material issue between the position of Company and the position of Investor Parties such that it would be inappropriate for one counsel to represent Company and Investor Parties. Company will not be liable to Investor Parties under this Agreement (i) for any settlement by an Investor Party effected without Company’s prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; or (ii) to the extent, but only to the extent that a loss, claim, damage or liability is either attributable to Investor’s breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by Investor in this Agreement or in the other Transaction Documents. In no event will the Company be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses for more than one separate firm of attorneys (plus local counsel as applicable) to represent all Investor Parties.
3.Other than the liability of Investor to Company for uncured material breach of the express provisions of this Agreement, no Investor Party will have any liability to Company or any Person asserting claims on behalf of or in right of Company as a result of acquiring the Shares under this Agreement.
1.As long as Investor holds any Shares, Company will not enter into any agreement that in any way restricts its ability to enter into any agreement, amendment or waiver with Investor.
2.As long as Investor holds any Shares, Company will not agree or enter into any equity or convertible financing (i) that has any form of registration rights, or (ii) pursuant to which shares of Common Stock or Common Stock equivalents may effectively be issued (A) at a discount, (B) at a variable price, or (C) where the price or number of shares are subject to any type of variability or reset feature. Provided, however, that Company may enter into any transaction: (a) with Investor, (b) for unregistered, non-convertible debt, (c) for restricted stock with no registration rights, (d) for Common Stock at a fixed price above the Market Price, (e) reasonably equivalent value given as consideration for a strategic acquisition, or (f) that includes an immediate, unconditional offer to Investor to purchase the Note by wire transfer of immediately available funds in the amount of 125% of the then outstanding Liqiuidation Value.
3.So long as Investor holds any Shares, upon any issuance by Company or any of its subsidiaries of any security with any term more favorable to the holder of such security or with a term in favor of the holder of such security that was not similarly provided to the Holder of the Note, then Company will notify the Holder of such additional or more favorable term and such term, at Holder’s option, shall become a part of the transaction documents with the Holder. The types of terms contained in another security that may be more favorable to the holder of such security include, but are not limited to, terms addressing conversion discounts, prepayment rate, conversion look back periods, interest rates, original issue discounts, stock sale price, private placement price per share, and warrant coverage.
E.Terms of Future Financings. So long as Investor holds and Shares, upon any issuance by Company of any security with any term or condition more favorable to the holder of such security or with a term in favor of the holder of such security that was not similarly provided to Investor in the Transaction Documents, then Company shall notify Investor of such additional or more favorable term and such term, at Investor’s option, shall become a part of the Transaction Documents for the benefit of Investor. Additionally, if Company fails to notify Investor of any such additional or more favorable term, but Investor becomes aware that Company has granted such a term to any third party, Investor may notify Company of such additional or more favorable term and such term shall become a part of the Transaction Documents retroactive to the date on which such term was granted to the applicable third party. The types of terms contained in another security that may be more favorable to the holder of such security include, but are not limited to, terms addressing conversion discounts, conversion lookback periods, interest rates, original issue discounts, stock sale price, conversion price per share, warrant coverage, warrant exercise price, and anti-dilution/conversion and exercise price resets.
F.Right of First Refusal. If at any time while any Shares are outstanding, Company has a bona fide offer of capital or financing from any person, that Company intends to act upon, then Company must first offer such opportunity to the Holder to provide such capital or financing to Company on the same terms as each respective person’s terms. Except as otherwise provided in any Transaction Documents, should Holder be unwilling or unable to provide such capital or financing to Company within 10 Trading Days from Holder’s receipt of written notice of the offer from Company, then Company may obtain such capital or financing from that respective person upon the exact same terms and conditions offered by Company to Holder, which transaction must be completed within 30 days after the date of the notice. Company will,
within 3 days of the respective closing, utilize 50% of all proceeds received by Company by each respective person that provides capital or financing to Company, to redeem the Note.

Without limitation of the foregoing, Company acknowledges that the rights and benefits of Investor pursuant to the Certificate of Designations are unique and that no adequate remedy exists at law if Company breaches or fails timely perform any of its obligations thereunder, that it would be difficult to determine the amount of damages resulting therefrom, that it would cause irreparable injury to Investor, and that any potential harm to
Company would be adequately and fully compensable with monetary damages; accordingly, Investor will be entitled to a compulsory remedy of immediate specific performance, temporary, interim, preliminary and final injunctive relief to enforce the provisions thereof, including without limitation requiring Company and its transfer agent, attorneys, officers and directors to immediately take all actions necessary to issue and deliver the number of Conversion Shares stated by Investor, and prohibiting any Common Stock from being issued or transferred until after all Conversion Shares have been received by Investor in electronic form and fully cleared for trading, which requirements will not be stayed for any reason, without the necessity of posting any bond. Company hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably waives all objections and rights to oppose any motion, application or request by Investor to issue any number of Conversion Shares, and all rights to stay or appeal any resulting order, and any appeal filed by Company or on its behalf will be immediately and automatically dismissed.

J.Headings. The titles and headings in this Agreement and the Transaction Documents are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Agreement and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof
K.Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to all provisions of this Agreement, and all Transaction Documents.

Re:Beyond Commerce, Inc.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
In accordance with the Stock Purchase Agreement (“Agreement”), dated October 25, 2021, by and between Beyond Commerce, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Company”), and _________________________ (“Investor”), pursuant to which Company is required to reserve, issue and deliver shares (“Shares”) of Company’s Common Stock (“Common Stock”) upon conversion of one or more shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (“Preferred”) purchased by Investor, this will serve as our irrevocable, absolute and unconditional instruction, authorization and direction to you to: (1) immediately and automatically upon an increase in authorized Common Stock reserve 100,000,000 Shares for issuance to Investor upon conversion of the Preferred; (2) at any time upon the written request from either Company, or from Investor with a copy to Company, provide Investor with the then total outstanding number of shares of Common Stock; and (3) upon receipt of a copy of a Conversion Notice in the form attached hereto as Appendix I, from either Company, or from Investor with a copy to Company, immediately issue the Shares requested. Capitalized terms used herein without definition will have the respective meanings ascribed to them in the Agreement.
The Shares will remain in the created reserve until the earlier of their issuance or such date as both Investor and Company provide written instructions that the Shares or any part of them may be taken out of the reserve and will no longer be subject to the terms of these instructions.
Upon your receipt of a Delivery Notice from either Company or Investor, you are to immediately process the instruction in accordance with your most-expedited same-day rush procedures, and use your commercially reasonable best efforts to issue and deliver to Investor forthwith the number of Shares stated in the Delivery Notice, either: (a) only if Company is not approved through DTC, and either Company or Investor provides an opinion of counsel to the effect that the Shares may be issued without restrictive legend, by delivering by overnight carrier to the address specified in the notice a physical certificate bearing no restrictive legend, by delivering by overnight carrier to the address specified in the notice a physical certificate bearing no restrictive legend; or (b) if Company is DTC eligible and either Company or Investor provides an opinion of counsel to the effect that the Shares may be issued without restrictive legend, by issuing pursuant to the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer (FAST) Program, crediting to Investor’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit
Withdrawal At Custodian (DWAC) system, and notifying Investor to cause its bank or broker to initiate the transaction through the DWAC system. You will at all times diligently take or cause to be taken all actions necessary to cause the Shares to be issued forthwith.
Company hereby confirms that the Shares should not be subject to any stop-transfer restrictions and will otherwise be freely transferable on the books and records of Company, and if the Shares are certificated, the certificates will not bear any legend restricting transfer of the Shares represented thereby, if a legal opinion is provided as set forth in the preceding paragraph.
Company hereby confirms that no instructions other than as contemplated herein will or may be given to you by Company with respect to the Shares. Company may not instruct you to delay or disregard any reserve request or Delivery Notice and you may not do so. You are to comply promptly with any Delivery Notice or share reservation notice received from Investor, notwithstanding any contrary instructions from Company.
Company will not replace you as Company’s transfer agent, until a reputable registered transfer agent has agreed in writing to serve as Company’s transfer agent and to be bound by all terms and conditions of this letter agreement. In the event that you resign as Company’s transfer agent, Company will engage a suitable replacement reputable registered transfer agent that will agree to serve as transfer agent for Company and be bound by the terms and conditions of these irrevocable instructions as soon as practicable and in any event within 3 Trading Days. You may not disclose any information, deliver any documents, or transfer any files to any successor transfer agent until after Investor acknowledges in writing that a suitable successor transfer agent has agreed in writing to be bound by the terms and conditions of these instructions.
Company must keep its bill current with you. If Company is not current and is on suspension, Investor will have the right to pay the amount of your standard fees in order for you to act upon these instructions. If payment for the reservation or issuance is not made by Company or Investor, you have no obligation to act under instructions until your fees are paid.
Company and you hereby acknowledge and confirm that complying with the terms of these instructions does not and will not prohibit you from satisfying any and all fiduciary responsibilities and duties you may owe to Company.
Company will indemnify you and your officers, directors, principals, partners, advisors, attorneys, agents and representatives, and hold each of them harmless from and against any and all loss, cost, liability, damage, claim or expense (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of attorneys) incurred by or asserted against you or any of them arising out of or in connection with complying with any Delivery Notice or any other instruction from Investor, except that Company will not be liable hereunder for any amounts in respect of which it is finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be due solely to your fraud, willful misconduct or gross negligence. You are entitled to indemnity and will have no liability to Company in respect of any action taken in compliance with any Delivery Notice or instruction from Investor, notwithstanding any contrary instructions from Company. Accordingly, you shall have no duty or obligation to confirm the accuracy of any calculations or information set forth in any Delivery Notice submitted by the Investor.
Investor is intended to be and is a third party beneficiary hereof, and no amendment or modification to the instructions set forth herein may be made without the prior written consent of Investor. The above instructions cannot be revoked, cancelled or modified without prior written approval of Investor.
The Board of Directors of Company has approved the foregoing irrevocable instructions and does hereby extend Company’s irrevocable agreement to indemnify your firm for all loss, liability or expense in carrying out the authority and direction herein contained on the terms herein set forth. You have not previously received contrary instructions from Company or its agents, nor are you aware of any facts or circumstances that would make the transaction improper or illegal under applicable laws or regulations.
The terms of this letter shall be governed by the laws of the State of Nevada without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof, and any action arising out of or relating to these instructions will be filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have caused this letter agreement regarding Transfer Agent Instructions to be duly executed and delivered as of the date first written above.
