3. Transfer. This Debenture may be transferred or exchanged only in compliance with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) and applicable state securities laws. Prior to due presentment for transfer of this Debenture, the Company and any agent of the Company may treat the person in whose name this Debenture is duly registered on the Company’s Debenture Register as the Holder hereof for all other purposes, whether or not this Debenture be overdue, and neither the Company nor any such agent shall be affected or bound by notice to the contrary. Any Holder of this Debenture, electing to exercise the right of conversion set forth in Section 4(a) hereof, in addition to the requirements set forth in Section 4(a), and any prospective transferee of this Debenture, are also required to give the Company written confirmation that the Debenture is being converted (“Notice of Conversion”) in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit I. The date of receipt (including receipt by telecopy) of such Notice of Conversion shall be the Conversion Date.
(a) Optional Conversion. At any date after issuance, the Holder shall be entitled, at its option, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of this Debenture, together with accrued interest thereon, then outstanding (“Conversion Amount”) into equity of the Company at a valuation equal to a price of $0.50 per each share of Common Stock or shares of Preferred Stock designated by the Parties in an amount equivalent to a value of $0.50 per share of Common Stock on an as-converted basis (“Conversion Equity”). Such conversion shall be effectuated, by the Company recording the Conversion Equity on the books of the Company within 10 days of receipt by the Company of the Notice of Conversion. Once the Holder has received such Conversion Equity, the Holder shall surrender the Debenture (or portion thereof) to be converted to the Company, executed by the Holder of this Debenture evidencing such Holder’s intention to convert this Debenture or a specified portion hereof, and accompanied by proper assignment hereof in blank. If the Company shall fail to record the Conversion Equity in the Holder’s name within such 10 day period, the Conversion Amount shall be automatically increased by ten percent (10%), and shall be increased an additional five percent (5%) for each additional 10 day period (or portion thereof) thereafter to a maximum aggregate increase of twenty-five (25%). In the event of a partial conversion of the Debenture, the Company will immediately issue a replacement Debenture covering the unconverted portion.
(b) Automatic Conversion. The Conversion Amount shall be automatically converted into Conversion Equity upon the occurrence of any of the following events:
(i) The closing of a Qualified Sale in accordance with the terms of this section. For these purposes, “Qualified Sale” means (1) the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company or the outstanding shares of the Company for cash or securities having a pro-forma pro-rata value attributable to the Holder’s interest of at least 125% of the Conversion Amount, but excluding any such transaction in which the consideration received by the Company or its members includes securities of the purchaser and such purchaser is not subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
(ii) An underwritten public offering of the Company’s equity with gross proceeds of at least $5,000,000.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Holder shall be entitled to exercise its conversion privilege notwithstanding the commencement of any case under the Bankruptcy Code. In the event the Company is a debtor under the Bankruptcy Code, the Company hereby waives to the fullest extent permitted any rights to relief it may have under 11 U.S.C. § 362 in respect of the Holder’s conversion privilege. The Company hereby waives to the fullest extent permitted any rights to relief it may have under 11 U.S.C. § 362 in respect of the conversion of this Debenture. The Company agrees, without cost or expense to the Holder, to take or consent to any and all action necessary to effectuate relief under 11 U.S.C.§ 362.
5. Priority; Security. The obligation evidenced by this Debenture shall be a senior obligation of the Company, other than obligations specifically designated otherwise by the Company. This obligation is secured by various mutually-agreed assets of the Company as described in the Security Agreement executed concurrently herewith.
6. Anti-dilution Adjustments. The amount of Conversion Equity shall be subject to adjustment as follows:
(a) In case the Company shall (i) pay a dividend or make a distribution to its members in additional equity or other securities or (ii) issue, by reclassification of its equity, any other securities of the Company (including any such reclassification in connection with a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing entity), the Conversion Equity issuable upon conversion of this Debenture immediately prior thereto shall be adjusted so that the Holder shall be entitled to receive the kind and amount of Conversion Equity, and other securities of the Company which such Holder would have owned or would have been entitled to receive immediately after the happening of any of the events described above, had the Debenture been converted immediately prior to the happening of such event or any record date with respect thereto. Any adjustment made pursuant to this subsection 6(a) shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such event.
(b) In case the Company shall issue rights, options, warrants or convertible securities to its members, for no consideration, containing the right to subscribe for or purchase equity, the Conversion Equity Shares thereafter issuable upon the conversion of this Debenture shall be determined by multiplying the amount of Conversion Equity theretofore issuable upon conversion of this Debenture by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the aggregate amount of Company member investment immediately prior to the issuance of such rights, options, warrants or convertible securities plus the additional member equity offered for subscription or purchase, and of which the denominator shall be the aggregate amount of Company member investment immediately prior to the issuance of such rights, options, warrants or convertible securities. Such adjustment shall be made whenever such rights, options, warrants or convertible securities are issued, and shall become effective immediately upon issuance of such rights, options, warrants or convertible securities. In the event of such adjustment, corresponding adjustments shall be made to amount of Conversion Equity.
(c) In case the Company shall distribute to its members evidences of its indebtedness or assets (excluding cash dividends or distributions out of current earnings made in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practices), then in each case the number of Conversion Equity thereafter issuable upon the conversion of this Debenture shall be determined by multiplying the amount of Conversion Equity theretofore issuable upon conversion of this Debenture by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the then Market Price (as defined below) on the date of such distribution, and of which the denominator shall be such Market Price on such date minus the then fair value (determined as provided in subsection 6(f) below) of the portion of the assets or evidences of indebtedness so distributed applicable to the Conversion Equity. Such adjustment shall be made whenever any such distribution is made and shall become effective on the date of distribution. In the event of any such adjustment, the amount of Conversion Equity shall also be adjusted and shall be that number determined by multiplying the Conversion Equity issuable upon exercise before the adjustment by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the amount of Conversion Equity in effect immediately before the adjustment and the denominator of which shall be the amount of Conversion Equity as so adjusted.
(d) Whenever the amount of Conversion Equity issuable upon the conversion of this Debenture is adjusted as provided in this Section 6, the amount of Conversion Equity shall be adjusted by multiplying such amount of Conversion Equity immediately prior to such adjustment by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the amount of Conversion Equity issuable upon the conversion of this Debenture immediately prior to such adjustment, and the denominator of which shall be the amount of Conversion Equity issuable immediately thereafter.
(e) For the purpose of this Section 6, the term “equity” shall mean (i) the aggregate shares of the Company at the time of conversion, on a fully diluted basis. In the event that at any time, as a result of an adjustment made pursuant to this Section 6, a Debenture holder shall be entitled to convert such Debenture into any securities of the Company other than such shares, (i) if the Debenture holder’s right to convert is on any other basis than that available to all holders of the Company’s equity, the Company shall obtain an opinion of a reputable investment banking firm valuing such other securities and (ii) thereafter the number of such other securities so purchasable upon conversion of a Debenture and the equivalent value of such securities shall be subject to adjustment from time to time in a manner and on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions with respect to the shares contained in this Section 6.
(f) Upon the expiration of any rights, options, warrants or conversion privileges, if such shall not have been exercised, the amount of Conversion Equity issuable upon conversion of the Debenture, to the extent the Debenture has not then been converted, shall, upon such expiration, be readjusted and shall thereafter be such number and such value as they would have been had they been originally adjusted (or had the original adjustment not been required, as the case may be) on the basis of (A) the fact that the only equity issued in respect of such rights, options, warrants or conversion privileges was the equity, if any, actually issued or sold upon the exercise of such rights, options, warrants or conversion privileges, and (B) the fact that such equity, if any, were issued or sold for the consideration actually received by the Company upon such exercise plus the consideration, if any, actually received by the Company for the issuance, sale or grant of all such rights, options, warrants or conversion privileges whether or not exercised; provided, however, that no such readjustment shall have the effect of decreasing aggregate Conversion Equity issuable upon conversion of the Debenture or increasing the basis for calculation of such aggregate Conversion Equity by an amount in excess of the amount of the adjustment made in respect of the issuance, sale or grant of such rights, options, warrants or conversion privileges.
(g) Upon any adjustment of the amount of Conversion Equity issuable upon conversion of the Debenture, then and in each such case, the Company shall give written notice thereof, by first-class mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the Holder as shown on the books of the Company, which notice shall state the aggregate amount of such Conversion Equity resulting from such adjustment and the increase or decrease, if any, in the aggregate amount of Conversion Equity issuable upon the conversion of the Debenture, setting forth in reasonable detail the method of calculation and the facts upon which such calculation is based.
7. Merger, Reorganization or Consolidation. In any case in which a transaction would result in a complete liquidation of the Company or a merger, reorganization, or consolidation of the Company with any other unrelated corporation or other entity in which the Company is not the surviving corporation or the Company becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of another unrelated corporation or other entity (all such transactions being referred to herein as a “Reorganization”), the surviving corporation or other entity shall be required to assume the Debenture or to issue a substitute Debenture in place thereof which substitute Debenture shall provide for terms at least as favorable to the Holder as contained in this Debenture and shall provide the Holder the right to acquire the kind and amount of common stock and other securities and property which the Holder would have owned or been entitled to receive had the Debenture been converted immediately prior to such Reorganization.
8. No Impairment. No provision of this Debenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of this Debenture at the time, place, and rate, and in the form, herein prescribed.
9. Waiver of Demand/Presentment. The Company hereby expressly waives demand and presentment for payment, notice of non-payment, protest, notice of protest, notice of dishonor, notice of acceleration or intent to accelerate, and diligence in taking any action to collect amounts called for hereunder and shall be directly and primarily liable for the payment of all sums owing and to be owing hereto.
