The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock solely for the purpose of issuance upon conversion of principal of this Note as herein provided, free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of persons other than the Holder, not less than such number of shares of Common Stock as shall be issuable upon the conversion of the outstanding principal amount of this Note. The Company covenants that all Common Stock that shall be so issuable shall, upon issue, be duly and validly authorized, issued and fully paid and non-assessable.


8.3. Adjustment Provisions. The number and kind of shares or other securities to be issued upon conversion determined pursuant to this Note shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events during the period that this conversion right remains outstanding, as follows:


(a) Reclassification. If the Company at any time shall, by reclassification or otherwise, change the Common Stock into the same or a different number of securities of any class or classes, this Note, as to the unpaid Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon, shall thereafter be deemed to evidence the right to purchase an adjusted number of such securities and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the Common Stock (i) immediately prior to or (ii) immediately after, such reclassification or other change at the sole election of the Holder.


(b) Stock Splits, Combinations and Dividends. If the Common Stock is subdivided or combined into a greater or smaller number of shares of Common Stock, or if a dividend is paid on the Common Stock or any preferred stock issued by the Company in shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Price shall be proportionately reduced in case of subdivision of shares or stock dividend or proportionately increased in the case of combination of shares, in each such case by the ratio which the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such event bears to the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such event.




9. Miscellaneous.

9.2. All notices required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given when personally delivered or sent by registered or certified mail (return receipt requested, postage prepaid), facsimile transmission or overnight courier to the address of the intended recipient as set forth in the preamble to this Note or at such other address as the intended recipient shall have hereafter given to the other party hereto pursuant to the provisions of this Note.


9.3. The term “Note” and all references thereto, as used throughout this instrument, shall mean this instrument as originally executed, or if later amended or supplemented, then as so amended or supplemented.


9.4. The Payor may not delegate its obligations under this Note and such attempted delegations shall be null and void. The Payee may not assign, pledge or otherwise transfer this Note without the prior written consent of the Payor (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld except in such instance where the proposed assignee or transferee is a direct or indirect competitor or owns any interest in any business that competes, directly or indirectly, with the Payor). This Note inures to the benefit of Payee, its successors and its assignee of this Note and binds the Payor, and its successors and assigns, and the terms “Payee” and “the Payor” whenever occurring herein shall be deemed and construed to include such respective successors and assigns. Any assignment or transfer made in violation of this Section 9.4 shall be void ab initio.

9.6. Governing Law. This Note shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflicts of laws principles that would result in the application of the substantive laws of another jurisdiction. Any action brought by either party against the other concerning the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be brought only in the state courts of New York or in the federal courts located in the City of New York, County of New York. Both parties and the individual signing this Note on behalf of the Payor agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. The parties to this Agreement hereby irrevocably waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in any action instituted hereunder and shall not assert any defense based on lack of jurisdiction or venue or based upon forum non conveniens. The parties executing this Agreement and the other agreements referred to herein or delivered in connection herewith on behalf of the Payor agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts and hereby irrevocably waive trial by jury. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party its reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses. In the event that any provision of this Note is invalid or unenforceable under any applicable statute or rule of law, then such provision shall be deemed inoperative to the extent that it may conflict therewith and shall be deemed modified to conform to such statute or rule of law. Any such provision which may prove invalid or unenforceable under any law shall not affect the validity or unenforceability of any other provision of this Note. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed or operate to preclude the Payee from bringing suit or taking other legal action against the Payor in any other jurisdiction where the Payor holds assets to collect on the Payor’s obligations to the Payee, to realize on any collateral or any other security for such obligations, or to enforce a judgment in another court in favor of the Payee.




9.7. Maximum Payments. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to establish or require the payment of a rate of interest or other charges in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law. In the event that the rate of interest required to be paid or other charges hereunder exceed the maximum permitted by such law, any payments in excess of such maximum shall be credited against amounts owed by the Payor to the Payee and thus refunded to the Payor.
