Up to $5,000,000.00 Original Issuance Date: February 15, 2019
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, NG Advantage LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Company”), promises to pay to Clean Energy, a California corporation (“Clean Energy,” and Clean Energy or such other Person as is the registered holder of this Note, the “Holder”), or its registered assigns, the principal sum of up to Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) (such amount, the “Maximum Principal Amount”), or such lesser amount as shall equal the outstanding principal amount hereunder, together with interest on the unpaid principal balance accrued from the date on which a Delayed Draw Loan (as defined below) is first made by the Holder pursuant to this Convertible Promissory Note (this “Note”), at a rate equal to 3.0% per annum, computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed and a year of 365 days. All amounts owed under this Note shall be unsecured indebtedness of the Company.
This Note is issued pursuant to the terms of that certain Note Purchase Agreement dated as of February 15, 2019 (the “Agreement”), by and between the Company and Clean Energy.
The following sets forth the rights of the Holder and the conditions to which this Note is subject, and to which the Holder, by the acceptance of this Note, and the Company agree:
1.Delayed Draw Loans; Draw Down Requests. On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Note, the Holder agrees to make loans to the Company hereunder (each, a “Delayed Draw Loan”) in an aggregate amount not to exceed the Maximum Principal Amount. The Company may, from time to time and at its election, request from the Holder one or more Delayed Draw Loans hereunder by executing and delivering a request letter in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (each, a “Draw Down Request”); provided that (a) the Company shall not deliver any Draw Down Request if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing hereunder, and (b) the Company shall not deliver any Draw Down Request after June 30, 2019. No later than ten (10) days following the Holder’s receipt of a Draw Down Request executed and delivered in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Note, the Holder shall deliver to the Company as a Delayed Draw Loan the amount set forth in the Draw Down Request by wire transfer to the account of the Company as set forth in the Draw Down Request. Upon the Company’s receipt of the proceeds from each Delayed Draw Loan, the amount of such proceeds shall automatically be added to the outstanding principal amount hereunder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Note, the aggregate amount of all Delayed Draw Loans requested pursuant to all Delayed Draw Requests shall not at any time exceed the Maximum Principal Amount.
2. Maturity Date. All unpaid principal, together with any then unpaid and accrued interest and other amounts payable hereunder, shall be due and payable on the earlier of (a) the four (4)-year anniversary of the date on which this Note is first issued, as set forth above (the “Original Issuance Date”) (the “Maturity Date”), or (b) when, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, such amounts are declared due and payable by the Holder or made automatically due and payable, in each case, in accordance with the terms hereof.
(a) Interest. All accrued and unpaid interest hereunder shall be payable on the Maturity Date.
(b) Prepayment. The Company shall not prepay the outstanding principal amount owed under this Note prior to the two (2)-year anniversary of the Original Issuance Date without the prior written consent of Clean Energy. The Company shall be entitled to prepay the outstanding principal amount owed under this Note, in whole or in part, at any time on or after the two (2)-year anniversary of the Original Issuance Date. Any such amounts that are prepaid may not be reborrowed. The Company may, at its election and at any time, prepay, in whole or in part, accrued and unpaid interest hereunder.
(c) Mandatory Prepayment. In the event of a Change of Control, the outstanding principal amount of this Note, plus all accrued and unpaid interest, in each case that has not been converted into equity securities pursuant to Section 4, shall be due and payable immediately prior to the closing of such Change of Control.
(a) Voluntary Conversion. The Holder may, at any time and from time to time prior to the Company’s payment in full of all amounts owed hereunder, convert, in whole or in part, the outstanding principal amount of this Note and the accrued and unpaid interest under this Note into fully paid and nonassessable Common Units at a price per unit equal to the then-applicable Conversion Price.
(b) Voluntary Conversion Upon a Change of Control or Initial Public Offering. If, prior to the Company’s payment in full of all amounts owed hereunder, a Change of Control or an Initial Public Offering occurs, then the Holder shall have the right, at the Holder’s election, to convert, in whole or in part, the outstanding principal amount of this Note and all accrued and unpaid interest under this Note as of immediately prior to such Change of Control or Initial Public Offering into fully paid and nonassessable Common Units at a price per unit equal to the Conversion Price.
(c) Adjustments. The Conversion Price and/or the number of Common Units into which this Note may be converted shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as set forth in this Section 4(c). Upon the occurrence of each such adjustment, the Company shall, at the request of the Holder, promptly compute such adjustment, in good faith, in accordance with the terms of this Note and prepare a certificate setting forth such adjustment, including a statement of the adjusted Conversion Price and adjusted number of Common Units, describing the transactions giving rise to such adjustment and showing in reasonable detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.
(i) Subdivisions; Combinations. If the Company at any time while this Note is outstanding subdivides (by any unit split, unit distribution, recapitalization or otherwise) its outstanding Common Units into a greater number of units, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision shall be proportionately reduced and the number of Common Units obtainable upon conversion of this Note shall be proportionately increased. If the Company at any time combines (by reverse unit split or otherwise) its outstanding Common Units into a smaller number of units, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately increased and the number of Common Units obtainable upon conversion of this Note shall be proportionately decreased.
(ii) Distributions. During such time as this Note is outstanding, if the Company shall, at any time after the Original Issuance Date, declare or make any distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of its Common Units, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including any distribution of cash, units, stock or other securities, property or options by way of a spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction, but excluding any Tax Distribution (as defined in the Operating Agreement)) (a “Distribution”), then, in each such case, upon the conversion of this Note, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of Common Units acquirable upon full conversion of the outstanding principal amount of this Note (without regard to any limitations on exercise hereof) immediately before the date of such Distribution.
(iii) Reclassification. If any reclassification of the equity of the Company shall be effected at any time while this Note is outstanding in such a way that holders of Common Units shall be entitled to receive units, stock, securities or other assets or property, then, as a condition of such reclassification, lawful and adequate provisions shall be made so that the Holder hereof shall thereafter have the right to receive upon a conversion of this Note (in lieu of the Common Units immediately theretofore receivable upon the conversion of this Note) such units, stock, securities or other assets or property as may be issued or payable with respect to or in exchange for a number of then outstanding Common Units equal to the number of Common Units immediately theretofore receivable upon conversion of this Note. In any such reclassification, appropriate provision shall be made with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder of this Note so that the provisions hereof (including, without limitation, provisions for adjustments of the Conversion Price and of the number of Common Units receivable upon conversion of this Note) shall thereafter be applicable, as nearly as possible, in relation to any units, stock, securities or other assets or property thereafter deliverable upon the conversion hereof.
(d) Conversion Procedures.
(i) Mechanics. If this Note is to be converted, the Holder shall deliver a written conversion notice to the Company, which shall notify the Company of its election to convert pursuant to Section 4(a) or Section 4(b) and specify the principal amount of the Note and accrued and unpaid interest under the Note to be converted. Any such conversion shall be effective as of the close of business on the date on which such written conversion notice is delivered to the Company in accordance with the terms of this Note, and as soon as practicable thereafter, the Company shall (A) update its unit ledger and all other applicable books and records to reflect the issuance to the Holder of the number of Common Units issuable upon such conversion and (B) deliver to the Holder a check payable to the Holder for any cash amounts owed as described in Section 4(d)(ii). If any such conversion is for all outstanding amounts owed under this Note, then, concurrently with or as soon as practicable after delivery of such a written conversion notice, the Holder shall deliver to the Company the original of this Note (or a notice to the effect that the original Note has been lost, stolen or destroyed) for cancellation.
(ii) No Fractional Common Units. No fractional Common Units shall be issued upon conversion of this Note. In lieu of the Company issuing any fractional Common Units to the Holder upon a conversion of this Note, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying the applicable Conversion Price by the fraction of a Common Unit not so issued.
(iii) Effect of Conversion. At such time as the conversion of all or any portion of this Note has been effected as set forth in Section 4(d)(i), the rights of the Holder under this Note, to the extent of the conversion, shall cease, and the Holder shall thereafter be deemed to have become the holder of record of the Common Units issuable upon such conversion (whether or not this Note has been delivered to the Company for cancellation in the event such conversion is for all outstanding amounts owed under this Note). Upon conversion of this Note in full and the payment of any cash amounts owed pursuant to Section 4(d)(ii), the Company shall be forever released from all its obligations and liabilities under this Note and this Note shall be deemed of no further force or effect, whether or not the original of this Note has been delivered to the Company for cancellation as set forth in Section 4(d)(i).
(iv) Compliance with Laws and Regulations. The Company shall take all such actions as may be necessary to ensure that all Common Units issued upon conversion of all or any portion of this Note may be so issued without violation of any applicable law or governmental regulation or any requirement of any domestic securities exchange upon which such Common Units may be then listed (except for official notice of issuance which shall be immediately delivered by the Company upon such issuance).
(e) Notices. In the event of:
(i) Any distribution to any holders of any class of securities of the Company (other than a Tax Distribution, as defined in the Operating Agreement) or any grant to any such holders of a right to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any units or any other securities or property, or to receive any other right;
(ii) Any capital reorganization of the Company, any reclassification or recapitalization of the equity of the Company or any transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company to any other Person or any consolidation or merger involving the Company; or

the Company shall, at least ten (10) days prior to the earliest date specified herein, mail to the Holder a notice specifying (A) the date on which the distribution or right is to be made and the amount and character of such distribution or right; and (B) the date on which any such reorganization, reclassification, transfer, consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding-up is expected to become effective and the date for determining the Company’s members entitled to vote thereon.
(a) By accepting this Note, the Holder agrees that all payments on account of the Obligations of the Company to the Holder under this Note or in connection herewith (the “Subordinated Indebtedness”) shall be subordinate and subject in right of payment, to the extent and in the manner set forth herein, to the prior payment in full in cash of the Senior Indebtedness (as defined below).
(b) In the event of any payment or distribution of the assets of the Company of any kind or character, whether in cash, property or securities, upon the dissolution, winding up or total or partial liquidation or reorganization, readjustment, arrangement or similar proceeding relating to the Company or its property or assets, whether voluntary or involuntary or in bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, arrangement or similar proceedings or upon an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or upon any other marshalling or composition of the assets and liabilities of the Company or otherwise, all amounts owing on account of the Senior Indebtedness shall first be paid in full in cash, or payment provided for in cash or in cash equivalents, before any Subordinated Debt Payment is made.
(c) This Section 5 is intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights against the Company of the Holder, on the one hand, and the Senior Lenders, on the other hand. Nothing contained herein shall (i) impair, as between the Company and the Holder, the obligation of the Company to pay the principal of or interest on this Note and its other Obligations with respect to the Subordinated Indebtedness as and when the same shall become due and payable in accordance with the terms thereof, or (ii) otherwise affect the relative rights against the Company of the Holder, on the one hand, and the creditors of the Company (other than the Senior Lenders), on the other hand.
(d) The Holder, by its acceptance hereof, agrees to negotiate in good faith with any Senior Lender regarding the terms and provisions, which shall be consistent with this Section 5, of such subordination agreements and related instruments and documents as may be reasonably requested by such Senior Lender to effectuate the purposes of this Section 5.
