The Company shall pay interest to the Lender on the outstanding Principal Amount of this Note in accordance with Section 1.2 below and such interest shall accrue on each advance of funds from the Lender (each an “Advance”) from the date of such Advance. Schedule A hereto sets forth a list of all advances made prior to the date hereof. To the extent that any of such advances are represented by previously issued promissory notes, they will hereafter be governed by this Note.
The Company hereby expressly authorizes the Holder to record on Schedule A hereto the amount and date of each loan made hereunder after the date hereof and the date and amount of each payment of principal thereon.

Section 1.1 Interest shall accrue daily from the date of each Advance at a rate equal to ten percent (10%) per annum and shall be payable, at the Company’s option, either in cash or as payment-in-kind in shares of the Company’s Common Stock, on the Maturity Date. If the Company elects to pay interest in shares of the Company’s Common Stock, the number of shares issuable shall be determined by diving the dollar value of the interest being paid by $0.75 (as such amount shall be equitably adjusted to give effect to stock splits, stock dividends and similar transactions).
Section 1.2 All payments of principal and interest shall be made to the Lender at the address set forth in Section 3.1or such other address as the Lender shall notify the Company in writing ten (10) days prior to the due date of any payment or upon any prepayment of this Note as provided herein.
Section 1.3 The occurrence of any of the following events of default ( each an “Event of Default”) shall, at the option of the Lender, make all sums of principal and interest then remaining unpaid hereon and all other amounts payable hereunder immediately due and payable, upon demand, without presentment:
(a) the Company fails to pay the Principal Amount and all accrued and unpaid interest on or before the Maturity Date.
(b) the Company breaches any other provision of this Note and such breach is not cured within twenty (20) days after written notice thereof to the Company.
(c) bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings or other proceedings or relief under any bankruptcy law or any other law, or the issuance of any notice in relation to such event, for the relief of debtors shall be instituted by the Company.
