FOR VALUE RECEIVED Simply Mac, Inc.

The Issuer shall pay the Holder interest on the Outstanding Principal Obligations calculated daily based on the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 365 or 366 days (as applicable) and compounded monthly and payable in arrears from the date of the advance of the Principal Amount until the date due to be repaid at a rate equal to eighteen percent (18%) per annum.


Prior to an Event of Default, interest shall be paid on the Maturity Date on the Outstanding Principal Obligations and shall accrue to and including the Maturity Date.


The interest rate upon an event of default being failure to pay any monies as and when due shall be 36% per annum. All payments received under this Promissory Note shall be applied first to the payment of interest and remaining amounts to the payment of principal.


The Issuer shall pay the Holder a commitment fee in the amount of $20,000 which shall be capitalized and added to the advance account of $400,000, collectively called the Principal Amount.


Where the rate of interest payable under this Promissory Note is found by a competent court of law, governmental agency or other tribunal to exceed the maximum rate of interest permitted by the laws of any applicable jurisdiction or the rules or regulations of any appropriate regulatory authority, then during the time that the rate of interest would exceed the permissible limit, that portion of each interest payment attributable to the portion of the interest rate that exceeds the permissible limit shall be deemed to be a voluntary repayment of principal owing hereunder.




The Issuer (provided that the Issuer is not in default hereunder) shall have the right to prepay all or part of the Outstanding Principal Obligations, together with accrued interest thereon to the date of such prepayment and any other amounts outstanding, at any time or from time to time, without

penalty, upon ten (10) Banking Days’ prior written notice to the Lender. Any pre-payment of Outstanding Principal Obligations shall be a permanent reduction in the Loan and cannot be advanced again to the Borrower. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, partial prepayments must be in amounts of not less than $50,000.00.




The Issuer promises to pay all costs and expenses incurred by the Holder in collecting any amount due under this Promissory Note and in enforcing its rights hereunder and under any security granted or issued to the Holder by the Issuer, including, without limitation, the fees and disbursements of counsel to the Holder on a solicitor and his own client basis (the “Collection Costs”). Any Collection Costs that are not paid immediately by the Issuer shall be added to the Principal Amount and shall bear interest at the Default Interest Rate.




The Issuer hereby waives demand and presentment for payment, notice of non-payment, protest and notice of protest of this Promissory Note and waives any defences based upon indulgences which may be granted by the Holder to any party liable hereunder.
