Principal Amount: $86,000.00 Interest Rate: 1.000% Date of Note: April 22, 2020


PROMISE TO PAY. Shift8 Networks, Inc. (“Borrower”) promises to pay to THE BANK OF SAN ANTONIO (“Lender”), or order, in lawful money of the United States of America, the principal amount of Eighty-six Thousand & 00/100 Dollars ($86,000.00), together with interest on the unpaid principal balance from April 22, 2020, calculated as described in the “INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD” paragraph using an interest rate of 1.000% per annum based on a year of 360 days, until maturity. The interest rate may change under the terms and conditions of the “INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT” section.


PAYMENT. Borrower will pay this loan in accordance with the following payment schedule:


Borrower must make all payments at the place Lender designates. The payment terms for this Note are:


The interest rate is 1% per year, beginning on the date of this Note. To the extent the loan amount is not forgiven under the Paycheck Protection Program (Sections 1102 and 1106 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act)), Borrower must make equal monthly payments of principal and interest, beginning six (6) months from the date of this Note, until the maturity date, which is two (2) years from the date of the Note. This Note may be prepaid in part or in full, at any time, without penalty.


SBA. When SBA is the holder, this Note will be interpreted and enforced under Federal law, including SBA regulations. Lender or SBA may use state or local procedures for filing papers, recording documents, giving notice, foreclosing liens, and other purposes. By using such procedures, SBA does not waive any Federal immunity from state or local control, penalty, tax, or liability. As to this Note, Borrower may not claim or assert against SBA any local or state law to deny any obligation, defeat any claim of SBA, or preempt Federal law.


This Note arise out of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (P.L. 116-136 (the “CARES Act”) and the Paycheck Protection Program administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) under the SBA’s 7(a) loan program (the “PPP”) [together with other federal statutes and regulations that are now, or may become, applicable to the Note, the “Regulations]; pursuant to the Regulations, some or all of the outstanding principal balance of the Note, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon, is subject to being forgiven if Borrower satisfies certain requirements relating to the continued employment and compensation of its employees, and use of proceeds of the Note.


Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal; and then to any late charges. Borrower will pay Lender at Lender’s address shown above or at such other place as Lender may designate in writing.


MAXIMUM INTEREST RATE. Under no circumstances will the interest rate on this Note exceed (except for any higher default rate shown below) the lesser of 18.000% per annum or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law.


INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD. Interest on this Note is computed on a 30/360 simple interest basis; that is, with the exception of odd days before the first full payment cycle, monthly interest is calculated by applying the ratio of the interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by a month of 30 days. Interest for the odd days before the first full month is calculated on the basis of the actual days and a 360-day year. All interest payable under this Note is computed using this method.






Loan No: 524301 (Continued) Page 2


PREPAYMENT. Borrower may pay without penalty all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due. Prepayment in full shall consist of payment of the remaining unpaid principal balance together with all accrued and unpaid interest and all other amounts, costs and expenses for which Borrower is responsible under this Note or any other agreement with Lender pertaining to this loan, and in no event will Borrower ever be required to pay any unearned interest. Early payments will not, unless agreed to by Lender in writing, relieve Borrower of Borrower’s obligation to continue to make payments under the payment schedule. Rather, early payments will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrower’s making fewer payments. Borrower agrees not to send Lender payments marked “paid in full”, “without recourse”, or similar language. If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it without losing any of Lender’s rights under this Note, and Borrower will remain obligated to pay any further amount owed to Lender. All written communications concerning disputed amounts, including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes “payment in full” of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount must be mailed or delivered to: THE BANK OF SAN ANTONIO, 1900 NW Loop 410 San Antonio, TX 78213.


LATE CHARGE. If a payment is 10 days or more late, Borrower will be charged 5.000% of the unpaid portion of the regularly scheduled payment.


INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT. Upon default, including failure to pay upon final maturity, the interest rate on this Note shall be increased to 18.000% per annum based on a year of 360 days. However, in no event will the interest rate exceed the maximum interest rate limitations under applicable law.

GENERAL PROVISIONS. NOTICE: Under no circumstances (and notwithstanding any other provisions of this Note) shall the interest charged, collected, or contracted for on this Note exceed the maximum rate permitted by law. The term “maximum rate permitted by law” as used in this Note means the greater of (a) the maximum rate of interest permitted under federal or other law applicable to the indebtedness evidenced by this Note, or (b) the higher, as of the date of this Note, of the “Weekly Ceiling” or the “Quarterly Ceiling” as referred to in Sections 303.002, 303.003 and 303.006 of the Texas Finance Code. If any part of this Note cannot be enforced, this fact will not affect the rest of the Note. Borrower does not agree or intend to pay, and Lender does not agree or intend to contract for, charge, collect, take, reserve or receive (collectively referred to herein as “charge or collect”), any amount in the nature of interest or in the nature of a fee for this loan, which would in any way or event (including demand, prepayment, or acceleration) cause Lender to charge or collect more for this loan than the maximum Lender would be permitted to charge or collect by federal law or the law of the State of Texas (as applicable). Any such excess interest or unauthorized fee shall, instead of anything stated to the contrary, be applied first to reduce the principal balance of this loan, and when the principal has been paid in full, be refunded to Borrower. The right to accelerate maturity of sums due under this Note does not include the right to accelerate any interest which has not otherwise accrued on the date of such acceleration, and Lender does not intend to charge or collect any unearned interest in the event of acceleration. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance or detention of sums due hereunder shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of the loan evidenced by this Note until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the loan evidenced hereby does not exceed the applicable usury ceiling. Lender may delay or forgo enforcing any of its rights or remedies under this Note without losing them. Borrower and any other person who signs, guarantees or endorses this Note, to the extent allowed by law, waive presentment, demand for payment, notice of dishonor, notice of intent to accelerate the maturity of this Note, and notice of acceleration of the maturity of this Note. Upon any change in the terms of this Note, and unless otherwise expressly stated in writing, no party who signs this Note, whether as maker, guarantor, accommodation maker or endorser, shall be released from liability. All such parties agree that Lender may renew or extend (repeatedly and for any length of time) this loan or release any party or guarantor or collateral; or impair, fail to realize upon or perfect Lender’s security interest in the collateral without the consent of or notice to anyone. All such parties also agree that Lender may modify this loan without the consent of or notice to anyone other than the party with whom the modification is made. The obligations under this Note are joint and several.
