All amounts payable hereunder are payable in lawful money of the United States of America at the address of the Lender set forth above in immediately available funds. Prior to a Default, all payments shall be applied first on account of other charges, second to accrued interest due on the unpaid balance of principal and finally the remainder of such payments shall be applied to unpaid principal. If a Default occurs, payments and monies received may be applied in any manner and order deemed appropriate by the Lender.

In no event shall the rate of interest hereunder be in excess of the maximum amount permitted by law. In the event the rate of interest hereunder is determined to be in excess of the maximum amount permitted by law, such interest rate shall be automatically decreased to the maximum rate permitted by law.
 
In addition to all other rights contained in this Note, if a Default (defined herein) occurs and as long as a Default continues, all outstanding sums hereunder shall bear interest at the interest rate otherwise prevailing under the preceding paragraph, plus 10% (the “Default Rate”). The Default Rate shall also apply from acceleration until all unpaid sums and obligations (whether matured or contingent) hereunder and any judgments thereon are paid in full.

Each prepayment shall be applied first to the payment in full of other charges payable hereunder, then to accrued interest and the remainder of such payment, if any, shall be applied to the reduction of the unpaid principal balance.

All notices to the Borrower shall be adequately given if mailed postage prepaid to the address appearing in the Lender’s records.

THE BORROWER HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION, OR PROCEEDING. In connection therewith, the Borrower agrees that any suit, action, or proceeding arising hereunder or with respect hereto will be instituted in the Court of Common Pleas of York County, Pennsylvania, or the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the jurisdiction of each such Court for such purpose.

THE BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THIS PARAGRAPH IS A SPECIFIC AND MATERIAL ASPECT OF THIS NOTE AND THAT THE LENDER WOULD NOT EXTEND CREDIT IF THE WAIVERS SET FORTH IN THIS PARAGRAPH WERE NOT A PART OF THIS NOTE.

If a copy of this Note, verified by affidavit, shall have been filed in such proceeding, it shall not be necessary to file the original as a warrant of attorney. The Borrower hereby waives the right to any stay of execution and the benefit of all exemption laws now or hereafter in effect. No single exercise of this warrant and power to confess judgment shall be deemed to exhaust this power, whether or not any such exercise shall be held by any court to be invalid, voidable or void, but this power shall continue undiminished and may be exercised from time to time as often as the Lender shall elect until all sums due hereunder shall have been paid in full. Interest shall continue to accrue after entry of judgment hereunder, by confession, default, or otherwise, at the higher of the prevailing rate of interest under this Note, or the judgment rate of interest under applicable law. All waivers granted in this paragraph are given to the extent permitted by the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure.
 
13.           NOTICE: THIS NOTE CONTAINS, AT PARAGRAPH 12, A WARRANT OF ATTORNEY TO CONFESS JUDGMENT AGAINST THE BORROWER. IN GRANTING THIS WARRANT OF ATTORNEY TO CONFESS JUDGMENT AGAINST THE BORROWER, THE BORROWER HEREBY KNOWINGLY, INTENTIONALLY, AND VOLUNTARILY, AND ON THE ADVICE OF SEPARATE COUNSEL OF THE BORROWER, UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHTS THE BORROWER HAS OR MAY HAVE TO PRIOR NOTICE AND AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HEARING UNDER THE RESPECTIVE CONSTITUTIONS AND LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES, THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, OR OF ANY OTHER STATE.

Promissory Agreement
3
 
 
 
 
WARRANT
to Purchase up to 200,000 Shares of the
Common Stock, $0.0001 Par Value Per Share,
of
OCEAN THERMAL ENERGY CORPORATION
 
 
This is to certify that, for value received, Mart Inn, Inc. (“Lender”) or any permitted transferee (Lender or such transferee being hereinafter called the “Holder”) is entitled to purchase, subject to the provisions of this Warrant, from Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“OTEC”), at any time on or after the date hereof, an aggregate of up to 200,000 fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value (the “Common Stock”), of OTEC at a price per share equal to $1.00, subject to adjustment as herein provided (the “Exercise Price”).
 
1.           Exercise of Warrant. Subject to the provisions hereof, this Warrant may be exercised, in whole or in part, or sold, assigned or transferred at any time or from time to time up to four years hereafter. This Warrant shall be exercised by presentation and surrender hereof to OTEC at the principal office of OTEC, accompanied by (i) a written notice of exercise, (ii) payment to OTEC, for the account of OTEC, of the Exercise Price for the number of shares of Common Stock specified in such notice, and (iii) a certificate of the Holder specifying the event or events, which have occurred and entitle the Holder to exercise this Warrant. The Exercise Price for the number of shares of Common Stock specified in the notice shall be payable in immediately available funds.
 
Upon such presentation and surrender, OTEC shall issue promptly (and within one business day if reasonably requested by the Holder) to the Holder or its assignee, transferee or designee the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled hereunder. OTEC covenants and warrants that such shares of Common Stock, when so issued, will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, and free and clear of all liens and encumbrances.
 
If this Warrant is exercised in part only, OTEC shall, upon surrender of this Warrant for cancellation, execute and deliver a new Warrant evidencing the rights of the Holder thereof to purchase the balance of the shares of Common Stock issuable hereunder. Upon receipt by OTEC of this Warrant, in proper form for exercise, the Holder shall be deemed to be the holder of record of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise, notwithstanding that the stock transfer books of OTEC may then be closed or that certificates representing such shares of Common Stock shall not then be actually delivered to the Holder. OTEC shall pay all expenses, and any and all United States federal, state and local taxes and other charges, that may be payable in connection with the preparation, issuance and delivery of stock certificates pursuant to this Paragraph 1 in the name of the Holder or its assignee, transferee or designee.
 
2.           Reservation of Shares; Preservation of Rights of Holder.
 
OTEC shall at all times while this Warrant is outstanding and unexercised, maintain and reserve, free from preemptive rights, such number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock as may be necessary so that this Warrant may be exercised without any additional authorization of Common Stock after giving effect to all other options, warrants, convertible securities and other rights to acquire shares of Common Stock at the time outstanding. OTEC further agrees that (i) it will not, by charter amendment or through reorganization, consolidation, merger, dissolution or sale of assets, or by any other voluntary act or omission, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the covenants, stipulations or conditions to be observed or performed hereunder, and (ii) it will promptly take all action reasonably necessary to protect the rights of the Holder against dilution as provided herein.
 
Warrant
1
 
 
 
 
 
3.           Fractional Shares. OTEC shall not be required to issue any fractional shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant. In lieu of any fractional shares, the Holder shall be entitled to receive an amount in cash equal to the amount of such fraction multiplied by the Exercise Price.
 
4.           Exchange or Loss of Warrant. This Warrant is exchangeable, without expense, at the option of the Holder, upon presentation and surrender hereof at the principal office of OTEC for other warrants of different denominations entitling the Holder to purchase, in the aggregate, the same number of shares of Common Stock issuable hereunder. The term “Warrant” as used herein includes any warrants for which this Warrant may be exchanged. Upon receipt by OTEC of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and (in the case of loss, theft or destruction) of reasonably satisfactory indemnification, and upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, if mutilated, OTEC will execute and deliver a new Warrant of like tenor and date.
 
5.           Adjustment. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant and the Exercise Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as provided in this Paragraph.
 
(A)           Stock Dividends, etc.
 
(1)           Stock Dividends. In case OTEC shall pay or make a dividend or other distribution on any class of capital stock of OTEC payable in Common Stock, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be increased by multiplying such number of shares by a fraction of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at the close of business on the day immediately preceding the date of such distribution and the numerator shall be the sum of such number of shares and the total number of shares of Common Stock constituting such dividend or other distribution, such increase to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following such distribution.
 
(2)           Subdivisions. In case outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be subdivided into a greater number of shares of Common Stock, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant at the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such subdivision becomes effective shall be proportionately increased, and, conversely, in case outstanding shares of Common Stock shall each be combined into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant at the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such combination becomes effective shall be proportionately decreased, such increase or decrease, as the case may be, to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following the date upon which such subdivision or combination becomes effective.
 
(3)           Reclassifications. The reclassification of Common Stock into securities (other than Common Stock) and/or cash and/or other consideration shall be deemed to involve a subdivision or combination, as the case may be, of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such reclassification into the number or amount of securities and/or cash and/or other consideration outstanding immediately thereafter and the effective date of such reclassification shall be deemed to be “the day upon which such subdivision becomes effective,” or “the day upon which such combination becomes effective,” as the case may be, within the meaning of clause (2) above.
 
 
Warrant
2
 
 
 
 
(4)           Optional Adjustments. OTEC may make such increases in the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, in addition to those required by this subparagraph (A), as shall be determined by its Board of Directors to be advisable in order to avoid taxation so far as practicable of any dividend of stock or stock rights or any event treated as such for federal income tax purposes to the recipients.
 
(5)           Adjustment to Exercise Price. Whenever the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant is adjusted as provided in this Paragraph 5(A), the Exercise Price shall be adjusted by a fraction in which the numerator is equal to the number of shares of Common Stock issuable prior to the adjustment and the denominator is equal to the number of shares of Common Stock issuable after the adjustment, rounded to the nearest cent.
 
(B)           Certain Sales of Common Stock.
 
(1)           Adjustment to Shares Issuable. If and whenever OTEC sells or otherwise issues (other than under circumstances in which Paragraph 5(A) applies) any shares of Common Stock, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be increased by multiplying such number of shares by a fraction, the denominator of which shall be the number shares of Common Stock outstanding at the close of business on the day immediately preceding the date of such sale or issuance and the numerator of which shall be the sum of such number of shares and the total number of shares constituting such sale or other issuance, such increase to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following such sale or issuance.
 
(2)           Adjustment to Exercise Price. If and whenever OTEC sells or otherwise issues any shares of Common Stock (excluding any stock dividend or other issuance not for consideration to which Paragraph 5(A) applies or shares of Common Stock issued or issuable in connection with awards granted under the OTEC Stock Option Plans) for a consideration per share which is less than the Exercise Price at the time of such sale or other issuance, then in each such case the Exercise Price shall be forthwith changed (but only if a reduction would result) to the price (calculated to the nearest cent) determined by dividing: (i) an amount equal to the sum of (aa) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issue or sale, multiplied by the then effective Exercise Price, plus (bb) the total consideration, if any, received and deemed received by OTEC upon such issue or sale, by (ii) the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such issue or sale.
 
(C)           Definition. For purposes of this Paragraph 5, the term “Common Stock” shall include (1) any shares of OTEC of any class or series which has no preference or priority in the payment of dividends or in the distribution of assets upon any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of OTEC and which is not subject to redemption by OTEC, and (2) any rights or options to subscribe for or to purchase shares of Common Stock or any stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Common Stock (such convertible or exchangeable stock or securities being hereinafter called “Convertible Securities”), whether or not such rights or options or the right to convert or exchange any such Convertible Securities are immediately exercisable. For purposes of any adjustments made under Paragraph 5(A) or 5(B) as a result of the distribution, sale or other issuance of rights or options or Convertible Securities, the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding after or as a result of the occurrence of events described in Paragraph 5(A)(1) or 5(B)(1) shall be calculated by assuming that all such rights, options or Convertible Securities have been exercised for the maximum number of shares issuable thereunder.
