Interest shall be charged and calculated on the actual number of days elapsed over a 365-day year. The Borrower shall pay the Principal and Interest at the earlier of the pay-off date or the conversion date of this Note.

The Borrower may repay the entire unpaid Principal and accrued Interest at any time before it is due. This is known as full prepayment. No penalty shall be charged. The Lender will consider the Note “Paid in Full” if the Lender receives:

(b) the occurrence of any event, under the current Operating Agreement, that would cause the dissolution of the Company or that would make it unlawful for the business of the Company to be continued.
