1.1 Principal. Subject to the conditions and upon the terms herein provided, Lender irrevocably agrees to make future Advances to Borrower from time to time, in accordance with the schedule set forth in Exhibit B, during the term of this Agreement in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time Two Million Five Hundred Thousand and 00/100th Dollars ($2,500,000.00). Such Advances shall not exceed One Hundred Seventy-Five Thousand and 00/100th Dollars ($175,000.00) in any thirty (30) day period. Although the Note will be in the face amount of the total amount of the Loan, Borrower shall be obligated to pay only the amounts actually disbursed and unpaid hereunder, together with interest on the outstanding principal balance thereof at the rate specified in the Note and such other charges provided for in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
1.2 Interest. Borrower shall pay to Lender interest in compliance with the terms of the Note. In the event that the interest and/or charges in the nature of interest, if any, provided for by the Note, or by any other Loan Document, shall contravene a legal or statutory limitation applicable to the Loan, if any, Borrower shall pay only such amounts as would legally be permitted; provided, however, that if the defense of usury and all similar defenses are unavailable to Borrower, Borrower shall pay all amounts provided for herein. If, for any reason, amounts in excess of the amounts permitted in the foregoing sentence shall have been paid, received, collected, or applied hereunder, whether by reason of acceleration or otherwise, then, and in that event, any such excess amounts shall be applied to principal, unless principal has been fully paid, in which event such excess amount shall be refunded to Borrower. Borrower hereby represents and warrants that the Loan will be solely used for business purposes.
1.3 Prepayment. Prepayment of the principal advanced hereunder and of accrued interest thereon, in full or in part, shall be made in compliance with the terms of the Note.
1.4 Commitment Fee. The Borrower agrees to pay the Commitment Fee to the Lender upon each and every Advance made by Lender to Borrower, which is due and payable upon the extension of each Advance by Lender and which shall be withheld by Lender from each Advance.
1.5 Reimbursement of Expenses. The Borrower shall promptly pay and reimburse the Lender for any and all out-of-pocket expenses, fees and disbursements including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection with the preparation, interpretation, performance and enforcement of this Credit Agreement, the Loan Documents and any other documents related thereto, and pay on demand all costs and expenses of enforcement and collection of the Loans made hereunder or any loan to be made hereinafter including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees, whether or not suit is filed or for the pursuance of, or defense of, any litigation, appellate, bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding. Such payments may be withheld from any current or future Advance from the Lender to the Borrower as determined by the Lender in its sole discretion.
1.6 Optional Conversion. Lender shall have the right to elect to convert all or part of the Note to common stock of the Borrower at a price equal to seventy percent (70%) of the average closing price of the Borrower’s common stock as reported on the over-the-counter quotation system on the OTC Markets during the fifteen (15) calendar days prior to the date of the Loan Closing Date (i.e., if the common stock’s average over-the-counter market price is $0.10 per share and the total principal and accrued interest payable is $2,000,000, Lender would be entitled to 28,571,429 ($2,000,000/$0.07 per share at discount value) common shares of the Borrower). In the event of Lender’s election to convert, Lender shall provide Borrower with written notice of its election to convert the Note to common stock of the Borrower. A closing (the “Closing”) on the conversion shall occur not more than thirty (30) days after Lender’s written notice as mutually agreed by the parties. At the Closing, if the Lender exercises the Lender’s optional right to conversion, (i) all or a portion of the principal and accrued interest payable under the Note issued hereunder as designated by the Lender or Borrower shall be automatically converted into shares of restricted common stock, as provided herein; (ii) the Lender shall deliver the Note to the Borrower for cancellation if the Note is fully converted; and (iii) the Note shall immediately become null, void, and of no further force and effect if the Note is fully converted regardless of its delivery to and receipt by the Borrower and shall be deemed to represent only shares of the common stock into which it has been converted if the Note is fully converted. The Borrower shall, during the time that the Note remains outstanding, reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares a sufficient number of shares to effect the conversion of the Note. In the event that, on the date of conversion of the Note, the number of authorized but unissued shares of the Borrower is not sufficient to enable the Borrower to issue the number of shares issuable upon such conversion or exercise, the Borrower shall forthwith use its best efforts to cause its Articles of Incorporation to be amended to increase the number of authorized shares to an amount at least sufficient to enable the Lender to convert the Note.
2. Conditions of Borrowing. Lender shall not be required to make any Advances hereunder until the pre-closing requirements, conditions, and other requirements set forth in this Section 2 have been completed and fulfilled to the sole satisfaction of Lender, and the further conditions set forth in Section 3 are completed and fulfilled. On or before the Loan Closing Date, Borrower shall execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered) to Lender the Note, this Agreement and all other documents required by the Lender. For the avoidance of doubt, the Borrower, in its sole discretion, shall not be required to accept any Advances and that the Borrower’s decision to reject any particular Advance shall not constitute a breach of any Loan Documents or an Event of Default.

In the event that at any time the outstanding principal balance of the Note exceeds the limit imposed by this subsection, within three (3) Business Days after receiving notice from Lender of such violation, Borrower shall cause a payment to be made to Lender in the amount necessary to become in compliance with such limit, except as approved by the Lender in its sole discretion.
