B. Upon the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement, the Buyer desires to purchase and the Company desires to issue and sell, upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement (i) a Promissory Note of the Company, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, in the original principal amount of $110,000.00 (together with any note(s) issued in replacement thereof or as a dividend thereon or otherwise with respect thereto in accordance with the terms thereof, the “Note”), (ii) one hundred thousand (100,000) restricted common shares in the Company (“Commitment Shares”) to be delivered to Holder, via overnight courier , within 5 busine ss days following the Closing Date, and (iii) a three -year share purchas e warrant entitling the Buyer to acquire 250,000 com mon shares (“Common Stock” ), in the form attached her eto as Exhibit B (the “Warrant”) (together, the “Securities”).
NOW THEREFORE, the Company and the Buyer hereby agree as follows:
1. Purchase and Sale. On the Closing Date (as defined below), the Company shall issue and sell to the Buyer and the Buyer agrees to purchase from the Company (i) the Note in the original principal amount of $110,000, and (ii) the Commitment Shares.
1.1. Form of Payment. On the Closing Date, (i) the Buyer shall pay the purchase price of $100,000 (the “Purchase Price”) for the Securities to be issued and sold to it at the Closing (as defined below) by wire transfer of immediately available funds to a company account designated by the Company, in accordance with the Company’s written wiring instructions, against delivery of the Securities, and (ii) the Company shall deliver such duly executed Securities on behalf of the Company, to the Buyer, against delivery of such Purchase Price.
1.2. Closing Date. The date and time of the issuance and sale of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement (the “Closing Date”) shall be on or about June 4, 2020, or such other mutually agreed upon time. The closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Closing”) shall occur on the Closing Date at such location as may be agreed to by the parties.
1.3. Commitment Share True-Up. If, during the period beginning on the Closing Date and ending on the later of (i) the Maturity Date, or (ii) the date on which the Note is fully satisfied and cancelled (the “True-Up Period”), the then the greater of (i) $0.25 and (ii) the lowest traded price (as reported by Quotestream ™, a service of Quotemedia, Inc.) of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) for any Trading Day within the True-Up Period (the “Subsequent Share Price”), as reported on the Company’s Principal Market, is less than the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Issuance Date, then the Company shall, within three (3) trading days of Holder’s provision of written notice in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C (the “True-Up Notice”), issue and deliver to the Holder an additional number of duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock equal to (X) the quotient of the Commitment Value (as defined below) divided by the Subsequent Share Price, multiplied by 1.5, less (Y) the Commitment Shares, less (Z) any True-Up Shares (as defined below) previously issued. The “Commitment Value” shall mean the product of the Commitment Shares multiplied by the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Closing Date. Any additional shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to Section 1.d are referred to herein as “True-up Shares.” The Holder shall not submit more than one True-Up Notice. The True-up Shares, if required to be issued pursuant to this Note, shall be issued as provided in this Note, provided, however, that in no event shall the Holder be entitled to receive shares of common stock in excess of the amount that would result in beneficial ownership by the Holder and its affiliates of 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock at that time. For purposes of the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and Regulations 13D-G thereunder. Accordingly, the True-up Shares, if required to be issued pursuant to this Note, shall be issued in accordance with the beneficial ownership limitations contained herein, and in successive tranches (each an “Additional Tranche”) if the issuance of one tranche would result in the Holder’s beneficial ownership of more than 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock at that time. The Company shall issue each respective Additional Tranche of the True-up Shares, if required under this Note, within two (2) Trading Days of the request by Holder, subject to the beneficial ownership limitations contained herein. If the Company fails to issue the True-up Shares or any Additional Tranche within the timeframe specified in this Note, then the amount of Additional Shares in which Holder is entitled shall automatically be multiplied by two. The Company shall at all times reserve shares of its Common Stock for Holder in an amount equal to 300% multiplied by (X) the quotient of the Commitment Value divided by the lowest traded price of the Common Stock during the five Trading Days immediately preceding the respective date of calculation, multiplied by 1.5, less (Y) the Original Shares.
1.4. Registration Rights: The Company shall, within ten (10) calendar days of the effectiveness of the S-1 Registration statement initially filed with the SEC on November 12, 2019, file a registration statement form S-1MEF with the SEC to register 500,000 (five hundred thousand) shares in the name of the Buyer. Failure to do so will result in an Event of Default under the Note.

Accordingly, the Company acknowledges that the remedy at law for a breach of its obligations under this Agreement will be inadequate and agrees, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Company of the provisions of this Agreement, that the Buyer shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies at law or in equity, and in addition to the penalties assessable herein, to an injunction or injunctions restraining, preventing or curing any breach of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required.

All rights, remedies, and powers conferred in this Agreement and the Transaction Documents on the Buyer are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies, and shall be in addition to every other right, power, and remedy that the Buyer may have, whether specifically granted in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, or existing at law, in equity, or by statute; and any and all such rights and remedies may be exercised from time to time and as often and in such order as the Buyer may deem expedient.
2.13. Ownership Limitation. If at any time after the Closing, the Buyer shall or would receive shares of Common Stock in payment of interest or principal under Note, upon conversion of Note, under the Warrant, or upon exercise of the Warrant, so that the Buyer would, together with other shares of Common Stock held by it or its Affiliates, own or beneficially own by virtue of such action or receipt of additional shares of Common Stock a number of shares exceeding 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on such date (the “Maximum Percentage”), the Company shall not be obligated and shall not issue to the Buyer shares of Common Stock which would exceed the Maximum Percentage, but only until such time as the Maximum Percentage would no longer be exceeded by any such receipt of shares of Common Stock by the Buyer. The foregoing limitations are enforceable, unconditional and non-waivable and shall apply to all Affiliates and assigns of the Buyer. Additionally, for so long as the Buyer or any of its Affiliate own Securities, upon written request from the Buyer, the Company shall post (or cause to be posted), the then-current number of issued and outstanding shares of its capital stock to the Company’s web page located at OTCmarkets.com (or such other web page approved by the Buyer).
2.14. Attorneys’ Fees and Cost of Collection. In the event of any action at law or in equity to enforce or interpret the terms of this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents, the parties agree that the party who is awarded the most money shall be deemed the prevailing party for all purposes and shall therefore be entitled to an additional award of the full amount of the attorneys’ fees and expenses paid by such prevailing party in connection with the litigation and/or dispute without reduction or apportionment based upon the individual claims or defenses giving rise to the fees and expenses. Nothing herein shall restrict or impair a court’s power to award fees and expenses for frivolous or bad faith pleading.
