(b) On or prior to the date which is the 5th Trading Day prior to each Installment Date (each, an “Installment Notice Due Date”), the Company shall deliver written notice (each, a “Company Installment Notice”), to the Holder which Company Installment Notice shall either (A) confirm that the applicable Installment Amount of the Holder’s Debenture shall be converted, in whole pursuant to a Company Installment Conversion Payment, (B) confirm that the applicable Installment Amount of the Holder’s Debenture shall be paid in cash in whole pursuant to a Company Installment Cash Payment or (C) state that the Company elects to pay the Installment Amount part in cash, pursuant to a Company Installment Cash Payment and specify the portion (including Interest and the applicable Cash Payment Premium) which the Company elects or is required to pay in cash (the “Company Installment Cash Amount”) and (2) the portion (including Interest) of the Installment Amount, that the Company elects to convert pursuant to a Company Installment Conversion Payment (such amount a “Company Installment Conversion Amount”) which amounts when added together, must equal the applicable Installment Amount and certify that there is not then an Equity Conditions Failure as of the date of the Company Installment Notice. The Company shall wire such Company Installment Cash Amount to the Holder in accordance with the wiring instructions attached here to as Exhibit III.
Each Company Installment Notice shall be irrevocable. If the Company does not timely deliver a Company Installment Notice in accordance with this Section 3, then the Company shall be deemed to have delivered an irrevocable Company Installment Notice confirming a Company Installment Conversion Payment and shall be deemed to have certified that there is not then an Equity Conditions Failure in connection with any such conversion. The Company Installment Conversion Amount (whether set forth in the Company Installment Notice or by operation of this Section 3) shall be converted in accordance with Section 3(c). Any Company Installment Cash Amount shall be paid in accordance with Section 3(d).
(c) Mechanics of Company Installment Conversion Payment. Subject to Section 4(e)(i), if the Company delivers a Company Installment Notice and elects, or is deemed to have elected, in whole or in part, a Company Installment Conversion Payment in accordance with Section 3(b), then the applicable Company Installment Conversion Amount, shall be converted as of the applicable Installment Date by converting on such Installment Date such Company Installment Conversion Amount at the Market Conversion Price; provided that the Equity Conditions are then satisfied (or waived in writing by the Holder). Such shares of the Company’s Common Stock to be delivered in connection with such Company Installment Conversion Payment shall be made in accordance with Section 4(e)(i) herein.
If the Equity Conditions are not satisfied (or waived in writing by the Holder), then at the option of the Holder designated in writing to the Company, the Holder may require the Company to do any one or more of the following: (i) the Company shall redeem pursuant to the terms of the Debenture all or any part of the unconverted Company Installment Conversion Amount designated by the Holder (such designated amount is referred to as the “Unconverted Installment Amount”) and the Company shall pay to the Holder within 3 days of such Installment Date, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, an amount in cash equal to such Unconverted Installment Amount, and/or (ii) the Company Installment Conversion Payment shall be null and void with respect to all or any part of the unconverted Company Installment Conversion Amount designated by the Holder and the Holder shall be entitled to all the rights of a holder of this Debenture with respect to such designated amount of the Company Installment Conversion Amount; provided, however, that the Market Conversion Price for such unconverted Company Installment Conversion Amount shall thereafter be adjusted to equal the lesser of (A) the Market Conversion Price as in effect on the date on which the Holder voided the Company Installment Conversion Payment and (B) the Market Conversion Price as in effect on the date on which the Holder delivers a Conversion Notice relating thereto. If the Company fails to redeem any Unconverted Installment Amount by the 3rd day following the applicable Installment Date, then the Holder shall have all rights under this Debenture (including, without limitation, such failure constituting an Event of Default) and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3(c), but subject to Section 4(e)(i), until the Company delivers Common Stock representing the Company Installment Conversion Amount to the Holder, the Company Installment Conversion Amount may be converted by the Holder into Common Stock pursuant to Section 4. In the event that the Holder elects to convert the Company Installment Conversion Amount prior to the applicable Installment Date as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Company Installment Conversion Amount so converted shall be deducted from the Installment Amount relating to the applicable Installment Date as set forth in the applicable Conversion Notice.
(d) Mechanics of Company Installment Cash Payment. If the Company elects a Company Installment Cash Payment in accordance with Section 3(b), then the Company Installment Cash Amount, if any, which is to be paid to the Holder on the applicable Installment Date shall be paid by the Company on such Installment Date, to the Holder by wire transfer of immediately available funds, in an amount in cash equal to the Company Installment Cash Amount plus the Cash Payment Premium of the Principal portion of the Company Redemption Amount plus accrued and unpaid Interest. If the Company fails to deliver to the Holder via wire transfer the Company Installment Cash Amount on the applicable Installment Date then at the option of the Holder designated in writing to the Company (any such designation, “Conversion Notice” for purposes of this Debenture), the Holder may require the Company to convert all or any part of the Company Installment Cash Amount into shares of Common Stock of the Company at the Market Conversion Price. Conversions required by this Section 3(d) shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 4(d). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3(d), but subject to Section 4(e)(i), until the Company Installment Cash (together with Interest and the applicable Cash Payment Premium) is paid in full, the Company Installment Cash Amount (together with any interest thereon and the applicable Cash Payment Premium) may be converted, in whole or in part, by the Holder into Common Stock pursuant to Section 4. In the event the Holder elects to convert all or any portion of the Company Installment Cash Amount prior to the applicable Installment Date as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Company Installment Cash Amount so converted shall be deducted from the Installment Amount relating to the applicable Installment Date as set forth in the applicable Conversion Notice.
(e) Company’s Cash Redemption. The Company at its option shall have the right to redeem (a “Redemption”), in part or in whole, outstanding Principal and Interest under this Debenture in addition to any Installment Amount payments prior to the Maturity Date. The Company shall pay an amount equal to the principal amount being redeemed plus a redemption premium (“Redemption Premium”) equal to 1) if such Redemption occurs within 180 calendar days from the date hereof an amount equal to 10% of the outstanding Principal Amount being redeemed plus outstanding and accrued Interest and 2) if such Optional Redemption occurs after 180 calendar days from the date hereof an amount equal to 15% of the outstanding Principal Amount plus outstanding and accrued Interest. In order to make a Redemption pursuant to this Section, the Company shall first provide 7 business days advanced written notice to the Holder of its intention to make a redemption (the “Redemption Notice”) setting forth the amount of Principal and Interest it desires to redeem plus the applicable Redemption Premium (the “Redemption Amount”). After receipt of the Redemption Notice the Holder shall have 7 Business Days to elect to convert all or any portion of this Debenture, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 3(e). On the 8th Business Day after the Redemption Notice, the Company shall deliver to the Holder via wire transfer of immediately available funds the Redemption Amount with respect to the Principal Amount and Interest redeemed after giving effect to conversions by the Holder effected during the 7 Business Day period.
(4) CONVERSION OF DEBENTURE. This Debenture shall be convertible into shares of the Company’s Common Stock, on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 4.
(a) Conversion Right. Subject to the provisions of Section 4(e), at any time or times on or after an Event of Default or as provided for in Section 3(e), the Holder shall be entitled to convert any portion of the outstanding and unpaid Conversion Amount (as defined below) into fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock in accordance with Section 4(e)(i), at the Market Conversion Price. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of any Conversion Amount pursuant to this Section 4(a) shall be determined by dividing (x) such Conversion Amount by (y) the Market Conversion Price (the “Conversion Rate”). The Company shall not issue any fraction of a share of Common Stock upon any conversion. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Common Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Common Stock up to the nearest whole share. The Company shall pay any and all transfer, stamp and similar taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Common Stock upon conversion of any Conversion Amount.
(b) “Conversion Amount” means the portion of the Principal and accrued Interest to be converted, redeemed or otherwise with respect to which this determination is being made.

In that event that the Company’s Common Stock is uplisted to the Nasdaq as the Primary Market the Market Conversion Price shall not be less than 20% of the Market Conversion Price for the first conversion hereunder (the “Nasdaq Floor Price”).
(d) Mechanics of Conversion.
(i) Optional Conversion. To convert any Conversion Amount into shares of Common Stock on any date (a “Conversion Date”), the Holder shall (A) transmit by electronic mail (or otherwise deliver), for receipt on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York Time, on such date, a copy of an executed notice of conversion in the form attached hereto as Exhibit I (the “Conversion Notice”) to the Company and (B) if required by Section 4(d)(iv), surrender this Debenture to a nationally recognized overnight delivery service for delivery to the Company (or an indemnification undertaking reasonably satisfactory to the Company with respect to this Debenture in the case of its loss, theft or destruction). On or before the 3rd Business Day following (i) the date of receipt of a Conversion Notice or (ii) an Installment Date if the Company has delivered a Company Installment Notice pursuant to which a Company Installment Conversion Payment will be made (the “Share Delivery Date”), the Company shall (X) if legends are not required to be placed on certificates of Common Stock pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement and provided that the Transfer Agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company’s (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled to the Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system or (Y) if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, issue and deliver to the address as specified in the Conversion Notice, a certificate, registered in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled which certificates shall not bear any restrictive legends unless required pursuant to Section 2(g) of the Securities Purchase Agreement. If this Debenture is physically surrendered for conversion and the outstanding Principal of this Debenture is greater than the Principal portion of the Conversion Amount being converted, then the Company shall as soon as practicable and in no event later than 3 Business Days after receipt of this Debenture and at its own expense, issue and deliver to the holder a new Debenture representing the outstanding Principal not converted. The Person or Persons entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon a conversion of this Debenture shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock upon the transmission of a Conversion Notice pursuant to this Section 4(e)(i).
(ii) Company’s Failure to Timely Convert. If within 3 Trading Days after the Company’s receipt by electronic mail of a copy of a Conversion Notice or an Installment Date if the Company has delivered a Company Installment Notice pursuant to which a Company Installment Conversion Payment will be made the Company shall fail to issue and deliver a certificate to the Holder or credit the Holder’s balance account with DTC for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon such conversion of any Conversion Amount (a “Conversion Failure”), and if on or after such Trading Day the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion that the Holder anticipated receiving from the Company (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall, within 3 Business Days after the Holder’s request and in the Holder’s discretion, either (i) pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the Holder’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions and other out of pocket expenses, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased (the “Buy-In Price”), at which point the Company’s obligation to deliver such certificate (and to issue such Common Stock) shall terminate, or (ii) promptly honor its obligation to deliver to the Holder a certificate or certificates representing such Common Stock and pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the excess (if any) of the Buy-In Price over the product of (A) such number of shares of Common Stock, times (B) the Closing Bid Price on the Conversion Date.
(iii) Book-Entry. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon conversion of any portion of this Debenture in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Debenture to the Company unless (A) the full Conversion Amount represented by this Debenture is being converted or (B) the Holder has provided the Company with prior written notice (which notice may be included in a Conversion Notice) requesting reissuance of this Debenture upon physical surrender of this Debenture. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the Principal and Interest converted and the dates of such conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Company, so as not to require physical surrender of this Debenture upon conversion.
(e) Limitations on Conversions.
(i) Beneficial Ownership. The Company shall not affect any conversions of this Debenture and the Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Debenture or receive shares of Common Stock as payment of interest hereunder to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion or receipt of such interest payment, the Holder, together with any affiliate thereof, would beneficially own (as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules promulgated thereunder) in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion or receipt of shares as payment of interest. Since the Holder will not be obligated to report to the Company the number of shares of Common Stock it may hold at the time of a conversion hereunder, unless the conversion at issue would result in the issuance of shares of Common Stock in excess of 4.99% of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock without regard to any other shares which may be beneficially owned by the Holder or an affiliate thereof, the Holder shall have the authority and obligation to determine whether the restriction contained in this Section will limit any particular conversion hereunder and to the extent that the Holder determines that the limitation contained in this Section applies, the determination of which portion of the principal amount of this Debenture is convertible shall be the responsibility and obligation of the Holder. If the Holder has delivered a Conversion Notice for a principal amount of this Debenture that, without regard to any other shares that the Holder or its affiliates may beneficially own, would result in the issuance in excess of the permitted amount hereunder, the Company shall notify the Holder of this fact and shall honor the conversion for the maximum principal amount permitted to be converted on such Conversion Date in accordance with Section 4(a) and, any principal amount tendered for conversion in excess of the permitted amount hereunder shall remain outstanding under this Debenture. The provisions of this Section may be waived by a Holder (but only as to itself and not to any other Holder) upon not less than 65 days prior notice to the Company. Other Holders shall be unaffected by any such waiver.
(f) Other Provisions.
(i) The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized Common Stock the full number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of all outstanding amounts under this Debenture; and within 3 Business Days following the receipt by the Company of a Holder’s notice that such minimum number of Underlying Shares is not so reserved, the Company shall promptly reserve a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock to comply with such requirement.
(ii) All calculations under this Section 4 shall be rounded to the nearest $0.0001 or whole share.
(iii) The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock solely for the purpose of issuance upon conversion of this Debenture and payment of interest on this Debenture, each as herein provided, free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of persons other than the Holder, not less than such number of shares of the Common Stock as shall (subject to any additional requirements of the Company as to reservation of such shares set forth in this Debenture or in the Transaction Documents) be issuable (taking into account the adjustments and restrictions set forth herein) upon the conversion of the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture and payment of interest hereunder. The Company covenants that all shares of Common Stock that shall be so issuable shall, upon issue, be duly and validly authorized, issued and fully paid, nonassessable and, if a registration statement has been declared and remains effective under the Securities Act, registered for public sale in accordance with such registration statement.
(iv) Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue actual damages or declare an Event of Default pursuant to Section 2 herein for a Conversion Failure and such Holder shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief, in each case without the need to post a bond or provide other security. The exercise of any such rights shall not prohibit the Holder from seeking to enforce damages pursuant to any other Section hereof or under applicable law.
(5) Purchase Rights.
(a) Purchase Rights. If at any time the Company grants, issues or sells any Options, Convertible Securities or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property pro rata to the record holders of any class of Common Stock (the “Purchase Rights”), then the Holder will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which the Holder could have acquired if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Debenture (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the convertibility of this Debenture) immediately before the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of Common Stock are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights.
(b) Other Events. If any event occurs of the type contemplated by the provisions of this Section 4 but not expressly provided for by such provisions (including, without limitation, the granting of stock appreciation rights, phantom stock rights or other rights with equity features), then the Company’s Board of Directors will make an appropriate adjustment in the Conversion Price so as to protect the rights of the Holder under this Debenture; provided that no such adjustment will increase the Conversion Price as otherwise determined pursuant to this Section 5.
(c) Other Corporate Events. In addition to and not in substitution for any other rights hereunder, prior to the consummation of any Fundamental Transaction pursuant to which holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive securities or other assets with respect to or in exchange for shares of Common Stock (a “Corporate Event”), the Company shall make appropriate provision to insure that the Holder will thereafter have the right to receive upon a conversion of this Debenture, at the Holder’s option, (i) in addition to the shares of Common Stock receivable upon such conversion, such securities or other assets to which the Holder would have been entitled with respect to such shares of Common Stock had such shares of Common Stock been held by the Holder upon the consummation of such Corporate Event (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the convertibility of this Debenture) or (ii) in lieu of the shares of Common Stock otherwise receivable upon such conversion, such securities or other assets received by the holders of shares of Common Stock in connection with the consummation of such Corporate Event in such amounts as the Holder would have been entitled to receive had this Debenture initially been issued with conversion rights for the form of such consideration (as opposed to shares of Common Stock) at a conversion rate for such consideration commensurate with the Conversion Rate. Provision made pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be in a form and substance satisfactory to the Required Holders. The provisions of this Section shall apply similarly and equally to successive Corporate Events and shall be applied without regard to any limitations on the conversion or redemption of this Debenture.
(d) In case of any (1) merger or consolidation of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company with or into another Person, or (2) sale by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company of more than one-half of the assets of the Company in one or a series of related transactions, a Holder shall have the right to (A) exercise any rights under Section 2(b), (B) convert the aggregate amount of this Debenture then outstanding into the shares of stock and other securities, cash and property receivable upon or deemed to be held by holders of Common Stock following such merger, consolidation or sale, and such Holder shall be entitled upon such event or series of related events to receive such amount of securities, cash and property as the shares of Common Stock into which such aggregate principal amount of this Debenture could have been converted immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or sale would have been entitled, or (C) in the case of a merger or consolidation, require the surviving entity to issue to the Holder a convertible Debenture with a principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of this Debenture then held by such Holder, plus all accrued and unpaid interest and other amounts owing thereon, which such newly issued convertible Debenture shall have terms identical (including with respect to conversion) to the terms of this Debenture, and shall be entitled to all of the rights and privileges of the Holder of this Debenture set forth herein and the agreements pursuant to which this Debentures were issued. In the case of clause (C), the conversion price applicable for the newly issued shares of convertible preferred stock or convertible Debentures shall be based upon the amount of securities, cash and property that each share of Common Stock would receive in such transaction and the Market Conversion Price, (in the event a conversion utilizing the Market Conversion Price hereunder is pending), as applicable, in effect immediately prior to the effectiveness or closing date for such transaction. The terms of any such merger, sale or consolidation shall include such terms so as to continue to give the Holder the right to receive the securities, cash and property set forth in this Section upon any conversion or redemption following such event. This provision shall similarly apply to successive such events.
(6) REISSUANCE OF THIS DEBENTURE.
(a) Transfer. If this Debenture is to be transferred, the Holder shall surrender this Debenture to the Company, whereupon the Company will, subject to the satisfaction of the transfer provisions of the Securities Purchase Agreement, forthwith issue and deliver upon the order of the Holder a new Debenture (in accordance with Section 6(d)), registered in the name of the registered transferee or assignee, representing the outstanding Principal being transferred by the Holder and, if less than the entire outstanding Principal is being transferred, a new Debenture (in accordance with Section 6(d)) to the Holder representing the outstanding Principal not being transferred. The Holder and any assignee, by acceptance of this Debenture, acknowledge and agree that, by reason of the provisions of Section 4(b)(iii) following conversion or redemption of any portion of this Debenture, the outstanding Principal represented by this Debenture may be less than the Principal stated on the face of this Debenture.
