The Holder may not waive the beneficial ownership limitations on Conversion set forth in this Section 1.1.
(d) The number of shares of Common Stock to be issued upon each Conversion of this Note shall be determined by dividing the Conversion Amount (as defined below) by the applicable Conversion Price then in effect on the date specified in the notice of Conversion (the “Conversion Date”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Notice of Conversion”), delivered to Borrower by the Holder in accordance with Section 1.4 below; provided that if the Notice of Conversion is submitted by facsimile or e-mail (or by other means resulting in, or reasonably expected to result in, notice) to Borrower before 6:00 p.m., New York, New York time on such Conversion Date; however, if the Notice of Conversion is sent after 6:00pm, New York, New York time, the Conversion Date shall be the next business day.
(e) For purposes of this Note, “Conversion Amount” means, with respect to any Conversion of this Note, the sum of (i) the principal amount of this Note to be converted in such Conversion, plus (ii) at the Holder’s option, accrued and unpaid interest as of the Conversion Date, if any, on such principal amount of this Note at the Interest Rate, plus (iii) at the Holder’s option, any amounts referred to in Section 1.1(e)(i) and Section 1.1(e)(ii), at the Default Interest Rate, pursuant to the terms of this Note, plus (iv) at the Holder’s option, any amounts owed to the Holder pursuant to Section 1.4 hereof.
1.2 Conversion Price. The Conversion Price shall be equal to the Variable Conversion Price (as defined herein), subject to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by Borrower relating to Borrower’s securities or the securities of any subsidiary of Borrower, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar transactions (such transactions, each, a “Recapitalization”).
(a) “Market Price” shall mean the average of the lowest two VWAPs (as defined below) for the Common Stock during the 10-Trading Day period ending on the latest complete Trading Day prior to the Conversion Date.
(b) “Principal Market” shall mean the OTCBB or such other principal market, exchange or electronic quotation system on which the Common Stock is then listed for trading.
(c) “Trading Day” shall mean a day on which there is trading on the Principal Market.
(d) “Variable Conversion Price” shall be an amount that is equal to: 0.65 multiplied by the Market Price (as defined herein) (representing a discount rate of 35%).
(e) “VWAP” shall mean the daily dollar volume-weighted average sale price for the Common Stock on the Principal Market on any particular Trading Day during the period beginning at 9:30 a.m., New York City Time (or such other time as the Principal Market publicly announces is the official open of trading), and ending at 4:00 p.m., New York City Time (or such other time as the Principal Market publicly announces is the official close of trading), as reported by Bloomberg through its “Volume at Price” functions or, if the foregoing does not apply, the dollar volume-weighted average price of such security in the Principal Market on the electronic bulletin board for such security during the period beginning at 9:30 a.m., New York City Time (or such other time as the Principal Market publicly announces is the official open of trading), and ending at 4:00 p.m., New York City Time (or such other time as the Principal Market publicly announces is the official close of trading), as reported by Bloomberg, or, if no dollar volume-weighted average price is reported for such security by Bloomberg for such hours, the average of the highest closing bid price and the lowest closing ask price of any of the market makers for such security as reported in the OTCBB or by the OTC Markets Group. If the VWAP cannot be calculated for such security on such date on any of the foregoing bases, the VWAP of such security on such date shall be the fair market value as mutually determined by the board of directors of Borrower and the Holder. All such determinations of VWAP shall to be appropriately and equitably adjusted in accordance with any Recapitalization occurring during any period used to determine the Market Price (or other period utilizing VWAPs).
1.3 Authorized Shares. Borrower covenants that for so long as the Holder has the Conversion Right, Borrower will reserve, from its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock, free from preemptive rights, to provide for the issuance of Common Stock upon the Conversion of this Note.
(a) Borrower is required at all times to have authorized and reserved five times the number of shares that would be issuable upon full Conversion of the Note (assuming that the 4.99% limitation set forth in Section 1.1 is not in effect)(based on the respective Conversion Price of the Note (as defined in Section 1.2) in effect from time to time)(the “Reserved Amount”). The Reserved Amount shall be increased (or decreased) by the Holder, subject to the written consent of the Borrower, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, and further, which shall be waived if such affirmative consent, or withheld consent, is not communicated to Holder within forty-eight (48) hours of receipt of such written request, from time to time and in accordance with the Borrower’s obligations hereunder.
(b) Borrower represents that upon issuance, such shares of Common Stock will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. If Borrower issues any securities or effects any Recapitalization, Borrower shall make proper provision so that immediately after such issuance or Recapitalization there shall be a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock authorized and reserved, free from preemptive rights, for Conversion of the outstanding amount of the Note.
(c) Borrower acknowledges that it has irrevocably instructed its transfer agent to issue certificates for the Common Stock issuable upon Conversion of this Note, with appropriate restrictive legends, as applicable, and agrees that Borrower’s issuance of this Note shall constitute full authority to Borrower’s officers and agents who are charged with the duty of executing stock certificates to execute and issue the necessary certificates, with appropriate restrictive legends, as applicable, for shares of Common Stock in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Note.
(d) If, at any time Borrower does not maintain the Reserved Amount it will be considered an Event of Default (as defined herein) under Section 3.2 of the Note.
1.4 Method of Conversion.
(a) Mechanics of Conversion. As set forth in Section 1.1 hereof, from time to time, and at any time during the Conversion Period, this Note may be converted by the Holder in whole or in part, by (A) submitting to Borrower a Notice of Conversion (by facsimile, e-mail or other reasonable means of communication dispatched on the Conversion Date prior to 6:00 p.m., New York, New York time) and (B) subject to Section 1.4(b), surrendering this Note to Borrower at the principal office of Borrower (upon payment in full of any amounts owed hereunder).
(b) Surrender of Note upon Conversion. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon Conversion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to Borrower unless the entire unpaid principal amount of this Note is converted. The Holder and Borrower shall maintain records showing the principal amount converted and the dates of such Conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the parties, so as not to require physical surrender of this Note upon each such Conversion.
(c) Delivery of Common Stock upon Conversion. Within 24 hours of receipt by Borrower from the Holder of a facsimile transmission or e-mail (or other reasonable means of communication) of a Notice of Conversion meeting the requirements for Conversion as provided in this Section 1.4, Borrower shall issue and deliver or cause to be issued and delivered to or upon the order of the Holder certificates for the Common Stock issuable upon such Conversion within three (3) business days of the Conversion Date (the “Deadline”) (and, solely in the case of Conversion of the entire unpaid principal amount hereof, surrender of this Note) in accordance with the terms hereof and the Purchase Agreement. Upon receipt by Borrower of a Notice of Conversion, the Holder shall be deemed to be the holder of record of the Common Stock issuable upon such Conversion, and the outstanding principal amount due under this Note and the amount of accrued and unpaid interest on this Note shall be reduced to reflect such Conversion. Unless Borrower defaults on Borrower’s obligations hereunder, all rights with respect to the portion of this Note converted shall forthwith terminate except the right to receive the Common Stock or other securities, cash or other assets, as herein provided, upon such Conversion. If the Holder shall have properly given a Notice of Conversion, with an agreed upon Conversion Amount to be converted into shares of Common Stock, Borrower’s obligation to issue and deliver the certificates for Common Stock, with appropriate restrictive legends, as applicable, shall be absolute and unconditional, irrespective of the absence of any action by the Holder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision thereof, the recovery of any judgment against any person or any action to enforce the same, any failure or delay in the enforcement of any other obligation of Borrower to the holder of record, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination, or any breach or alleged breach by the Holder of any obligation to Borrower, and irrespective of any other circumstance which might otherwise limit such obligation of Borrower to the Holder in connection with such Conversion.
(d) Delivery of Common Stock by Electronic Transfer. If Borrower participates in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program, Holder may request that in lieu of Borrower delivering physical certificates to Holder representing the Common Stock issuable upon Conversion, Borrower use its best efforts to cause the Common Stock issuable upon Conversion to be electronically transmitted and credited to the Holder’s primary broker with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system; provided, that the Holder shall make any such request in writing to Borrower.
(e) Failure to Deliver Common Stock Prior to Deadline. Without in any way limiting the Holder’s right to pursue other remedies, including actual damages or equitable relief, the parties agree that if delivery of the Common Stock issuable upon Conversion is not delivered by the Deadline due to action or inaction of Borrower, Borrower shall pay to the Holder $500.00 per day in cash, for each day beyond the Deadline that Borrower fails to deliver such Common Stock (the “Fee”); provided; however that the Fee shall not be due if the failure to deliver such Common Stock is a result of a third party (i.e., transfer agent; and not the result of any failure to pay such transfer agent) despite the best efforts of Borrower to effect delivery of such Common Stock. The Fee shall paid to Holder by the fifth day of the month following the month in which it accrues. Borrower agrees that the Conversion Right is a valuable right to the Holder. The damages resulting from a failure, attempt to frustrate, or interference with the Conversion Right are difficult if not impossible to qualify. Accordingly, the parties acknowledge that the liquidated damages provision contained in this Section 1.4(e) are justified.
(f) Obligations to Transfer Agent. Borrower shall remain current in all amounts owed to its transfer agent and in good standing with its transfer agent. In the event that Borrower is not current in all amounts owed to its transfer agent, then at the option of the Holder, the Holder may advance any funds to Borrower’s transfer agent so that transfer agent will process the requested Conversion. Such advanced funds shall be paid by Borrower to the Holder within 48 hours of a written demand from the Holder.
1.5 Concerning the Shares.
(a) The shares of Common Stock issuable upon Conversion may not be sold or transferred unless: (i) such shares of Common Stock are sold pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) or (ii) Borrower or its transfer agent shall have been furnished with an opinion of counsel, in the form attached as Exhibit A to the Purchase Agreement, or in form, substance and scope satisfactory to Borrower and its transfer agent (1) at the time of the Conversion of such shares of Common Stock; and (2) at the time of the sale of the underlying Common Stock issued upon a Conversion, if such Conversion occurs less than one year after the Issue Date; and: (i) the due date of a quarterly or annual filing of Borrower with the SEC pursuant to the Exchange Act (each a “Filing Date”) occurs following such Conversion, and the sale of shares of Common Stock underlying such Conversion occurs on or following such Filing Date; or (ii) Borrower filed a Form 15 with the SEC; to the effect that the shares of Common Stock to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration (such as Rule 144 promulgated under the 1933 Act, or a successor rule (“Rule 144”)).
(b) Any restrictive legend on certificates representing shares of Common Stock issuable upon Conversion of this Note shall be removed and Borrower shall issue or cause to be issued to the Holder a new certificate therefore free of any transfer legend if: (i) Borrower and its transfer agent shall have received an opinion of counsel, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A to the Purchase Agreement, or in form, substance and scope satisfactory to Holder and its transfer agent, (1) at the time of the Conversion of such shares of Common Stock; and (2) at the time of the sale of the underlying Common Stock issued upon a Conversion, if such Conversion occurs less than one year after the Issue Date; and: (A) the Filing Date occurs following such Conversion, and the sale of shares of Common Stock underlying such Conversion occurs on or following such Filing Date; or (ii) Borrower filed a Form 15 with the SEC; to the effect that the shares of Common Stock to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration under the 1933 Act in accordance with Rule 144 (or such other exemption from registration); or (ii), the offer and sale of such Common Stock issuable upon Conversion of this Note is registered under an effective registration statement filed under the 1933 Act.

In any such case appropriate provisions shall be made with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder of this Note to the end that the provisions hereof (including, without limitation, provisions for adjustment of the Conversion Price and of the number of shares issuable upon Conversion of the Note) shall thereafter be applicable, as nearly as may be practicable in relation to any securities or assets thereafter deliverable upon the Conversion hereof.

The above provisions shall similarly apply to successive mergers, Recapitalizations or sale or conveyance of substantially all of the assets of Borrower.
1.7 Prepayment. At any time during the periods set forth on the table immediately following this paragraph (the “Prepayment Periods”), Borrower shall have the right but not the obligation, to prepay the outstanding Note (principal and accrued interest), in full, in accordance with this Section 1.7; provided that Borrower provides Holder with not more than three Trading Days’ prior written notice of such prepayment.
