BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES THIS AGREEMENT IS ENTERED INTO AS A RESULT OF BORROWER'S COVID-19. HARDSHIP REQUEST.
PROMISE TO PAY. GreenBox POS ("Borrower") promises to pay to Preferred Bank ("Lender"), or order, in lawful money of the United States of America, the principal amount of Two Hundred Seventy-two Thousand Seven Hundred Thirteen & 00/100 Dollars ($272,713.00), together with interest on the unpaid principal balance from April 29, 2020, calculated as described in the "INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD" paragraph using an interest rate of 1.000%, until paid in full. The interest rate may change under the terms and conditions of the "INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT" section.
PAYMENT. Borrower will pay this loan in one principal payment of $272,713.00 plus interest on April 29, 2022. This payment due on April 29, 2022, will be for all principal and all accrued interest not yet paid. In addition, Borrower will pay regular monthly payments of all accrued unpaid interest due as of each payment date, beginning November 29, 2020, with all subsequent interest payments to be due on the same day of each month after that. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal; then to any late charges; and then to any unpaid collection costs. Borrower will pay Lender at Lender's address shown above or at such other place as Lender may designate in writing.
BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ALL DEFERRED INTEREST ACCRUED DURING THE PAYMENT DEFERRAL PERIOD WILL BE BILLED UNDER LOAN NO. 213149-1 AND WILL BE DUE AND PAYALBE ON THE MATURITY DATE OF THE LOAN STATED HEREIN (Initial Here BE ).
INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD. Interest on this Note is computed on a 365/365 simple interest basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the interest rate over the number of days in a year (365 for all years, including leap years), multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding. All interest payable under this Note is computed using this method.
PREPAYMENT; MINIMUM INTEREST CHARGE. In any event, even upon full prepayment of this Note, Borrower understands that Lender is entitled to a minimum interest charge of $200.00. Other than Borrower's obligation to pay any minimum interest charge, Borrower may pay without penalty all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due. 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. 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: Preferred Bank, 9350 Flair Dr. Suite 425 EL MONTE, CA 91731.
LATE CHARGE. If a payment is 11 days or more late, Borrower will be charged 5.000% of the unpaid portion of the regularly scheduled payment.
INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT. Upon default, the interest rate on this Note shall, if permitted under applicable law, immediately increase by 8.000 percentage points.

Borrower or any Grantor defaults under any loan, extension of credit, security agreement, purchase or sales agreement, or any other agreement, in favor of any other creditor or person that may materially affect any of Borrower's property or Borrower's ability to repay this Note or perform Borrower's obligations under this Note or any of the related documents.

However, this Event of Default shall not apply if there is a good faith dispute by Borrower as to the validity or reasonableness of the claim which is the basis of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and if Borrower gives Lender written notice of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and deposits with Lender monies or a surety bond for the creditor or forfeiture proceeding, in an amount determined by Lender, in its sole discretion, as being an adequate reserve or bond for the dispute.
