The Holder has exercised the Mandatory Prepayment Option under Section 1.10 of the Note and the Borrower hereby acknowledges that the Mandatory Prepayment Amount (as defined in the Note) is currently owed to the Holder consisting of principal in the amount of $168,000.00, interest in the amount of $3,360.00, and a fee in the amount of $25,704.00 and, as such, the total outstanding balance under the Note equals $197,064.00 as of the date hereof, immediately prior to the fee contemplated below. Except as otherwise defined herein, terms defined in the Note shall have the same meaning when used herein. The Borrower and the Holder shall be referred to herein as the “Parties”.

The Borrower hereby affirms its obligations to the Holder under the Purchase Agreement, Note, Transfer Agent Instruction Letter, Unanimous Written Consent of the Board of Directors, and the other documents executed in connection therewith (the “Transaction Documents”) and further affirms as follows: (i) subject to the terms and conditions herein provided, that the Borrower shall continue to perform each and every covenant, agreement and condition set forth in the Transaction Documents, and continue to be bound by each and all of the terms and provisions thereof and hereof; and (ii) as of the date hereof, other than as provided herein, no default or Event of Default has occurred or is continuing under the Transaction Documents, and no event has occurred that, with the passage of time, the giving of notice, or both, would constitute a default or an Event of Default under the Transaction Documents.
The Borrower hereby acknowledges, represents, warrants and confirms to Holder that: (i) each of the Transaction Documents are valid and binding obligations of the Borrower, enforceable against the Borrower in accordance with their respective terms; and (ii) there are no defenses, setoffs, counterclaims, cross-actions or equities in favor of the Borrower to or against the enforcement of any of the Transaction Documents, and to the Borrower has any defenses, setoffs, counterclaims, cross-actions or equities against the Holder and/or against the enforceability of any of the Transaction Documents, the Borrower acknowledges and agrees that same are hereby fully and unconditionally waived by the Borrower.
The Borrower hereby represents and warrants to the Holder that the execution and delivery by the Borrower of this letter agreement and the performance by the Borrower of its obligations hereunder has been duly and validly authorized and approved by the Borrower and its Board of Directors pursuant to all applicable laws.
