Contract Categories: Business Finance - Note Agreements

Exhibit 4.4






This Amendment to Convertible Promissory Note (this “Agreement”), dated and effective November 16, 2020 (the “Effective Date”), amends that certain Convertible Promissory Note in the original principal amount of $40,000 made and entered into by and between the parties hereto effective as of December 2, 2019 (the “Note”, a copy of which has been filed as an exhibit to the Holder’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission), by and between Eco Innovation Group, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Company”) and Pinnacle Consulting Services Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Holder”). Certain capitalized terms used below but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Note.


WHEREAS, the Company and the Holder desire to amend the Note to extend the Maturity Date of the Note and add conversion limitations to the Note on the terms and conditions set forth below.


NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants, agreements, and considerations herein contained, and other good and valuable consideration, which consideration the parties hereby acknowledge and confirm the receipt and sufficiency thereof, the parties hereto agree as follows:


1.                  Amendment to Note.


(a) Effective as of the Effective Date, the definition of “Maturity Date” in the introductory paragraph of the Note shall be amended from “6 months from the Issuance Date” to “April 1, 2020” (the “Maturity Extension”).


(b) Effective as of the Effective Date, the following Section 3.9 is added to the Note:


“Section 3.9 Ownership Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Note, if at any time Holder shall or would be issued shares of Common Stock in whole or partial conversion of this Note, and such issuance, along with all other shares of Company Common Stock beneficially owned by Holder (together with its affiliates) would exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on such date (including for such purpose the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such issuance) (the “Maximum Percentage”), then Company shall not issue to Holder shares of Common Stock which would exceed the Maximum Percentage. Holder agrees, upon request, to provide Company with the number of shares of Common Stock it owns at the time of any proposed conversion hereunder. For purposes of this section, beneficial ownership of Common Stock will be determined pursuant to Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act. The shares of Common Stock issuable to Holder that would cause the Maximum Percentage to be exceeded are referred to herein as the “Ownership Limitation Shares”. Company will reserve the Ownership Limitation Shares for the exclusive benefit of Holder. Holder shall notify Company in writing of the number of the Ownership Limitation Shares that may be issued to Holder without causing Holder to exceed the Maximum Percentage. Upon receipt of such notice, Company shall be unconditionally obligated to immediately issue such designated shares to Holder, with a corresponding reduction in the number of the Ownership Limitation Shares. Upon notice to Company from Holder the term “4.99%” above shall be replaced with “9.99%”. Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein, if the term “4.99%” is replaced with “9.99%” pursuant to the preceding sentence, such increase to “9.99%” shall remain at 9.99% until increased, decreased or waived by Holder as set forth below. By written notice to Company, Holder may increase, decrease or waive the Maximum Percentage as to itself but any such waiver will not be effective until the 61st day after delivery thereof. The foregoing 61-day notice requirement is enforceable, unconditional and non-waivable and shall apply to all affiliates and assigns of Holder.”





2.                  Confirmations.
