(b) The Holder acknowledges that the conversion of this Note pursuant to Section 3 into the securities of the Company to be issued in the Qualified Financing may require the Holder’s execution of certain agreements relating to the purchase and sale of such securities, as well as registration rights, rights of first refusal and co-sale rights, rights of first offer and voting rights, if any, relating to such securities (collectively, the “Financing Arrangements”). The Holder agrees to execute all of the Financing Agreements in connection with the Qualified Financing as may be reasonably requested by the Company.

Subject to the preceding sentence, this Note may be transferred only upon surrender of the original Note (or affidavit of loss with any indemnity reasonably requested by the Company) for registration of transfer, duly endorsed, or accompanied by a duly executed written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company.

15. Maximum Payments. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to establish or require the payment of a rate of interest or other charges in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law. In the event that the rate of interest required to be paid or other charges hereunder exceed the maximum permitted by such law (such as, without limitation, the usury laws), any payments in excess of such maximum shall be credited against amounts owed by the Company to the Holder and thus refunded to the Company, or if no further amounts are owed by the Company to the Holder, shall be refunded to the Company. The Company hereby irrevocable consents to the reformation of this Note, as may be necessary by a court of law, so as to enable enforcement of this Note pursuant to summary judgment or summary proceeding. For avoidance of doubt, in the event that, for any reason, a finding by a court having jurisdiction over this Note is made that limits enforceability as a result of excessive interest or other origination or investment banking fees pursuant to the laws of any jurisdiction, then, such defense shall not be deemed to bar a summary proceeding or summary judgment on the Note but rather, the Note shall be fully and absolutely enforceable as to all principal and, the court having jurisdiction shall, after an inquest, have power to reform the Note so as to reduce interest amount to such amount as is immediately enforceable pursuant to summary judgment or summary proceeding and grant such award, plus any legal or enforcement fees of the Holder.


16. Construction and Enforcement. Each party acknowledges that its legal counsel participated in the preparation of this Note and, therefore, stipulates that the rule of construction that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not be applied in the interpretation of this Note to favor any party against the other.
