Borrower must make all payments at the place Lender designates. The payment terms for this Note are:


A. Initial Deferment Period. No payments are due on the Loan for six months from the date of first disbursement of this Loan. Interest will continue to accrue during the deferment period.

B. Loan Forgiveness. Borrower may apply to Lender for forgiveness of the amount due on this Loan in an amount equal to the sum of the following costs incurred by Borrower during the 8-week period beginning on the date of first disbursement of this loan:

i.   payroll costs;

ii. any payment of interest on a covered mortgage obligation (which shall not include any prepayment of or payment of principal on a covered mortgage obligation);

iii. any payment on a covered rent obligation; and

iv. any covered utility payment.

C. Amount of Loan Forgiveness. The amount of loan forgiveness shall be calculated (and may be reduced) in accordance with the requirements of the Paycheck Protection Program, including the provisions of Section

1106 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) (P.L. 116-136). Not more than

25% of the amount forgiven can be attributable to non-payroll costs. If Borrower has received an Economic Injury Disaster Loan ("EIDL") advance, the amount of such advance shall be subtracted from the loan forgiveness amount.

D. Interest. The interest rate on this Note is one percent per year (the "Interest Rate"). The interest rate is fixed and will not be changed during the life of the Loan. Except as otherwise provided in this Note, the outstanding Loan Amount shall accrue interest at an annual rate equal to the Interest Rate from the date of this Note until paid in full, whether at maturity, by prepayment, or otherwise.

E. Installment Payments. Borrower shall pay the Monthly Installment on each Monthly Payment Date. Lender will apply each installment payment first to pay interest accrued to the day Lender received the payment, then to bring principal current, and will apply any remaining balance to reduce principal.

F. Maturity Date. This Note will mature two years from the date of first disbursement of this loan (the

"Maturity Date").

G. Final Payment. A final payment in the aggregate amount of the then outstanding and unpaid Loan Amount, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, shall become immediately due and payable in full on the Maturity Date.

H. Interest After Maturity Date. Interest shall continue to accrue at the Interest Rate on all amounts unpaid at the

Maturity Date.

I. Computation of Interest. All computations of interest shall be calculated on the basis of actual days elapsed in a 365-day year. Interest shall begin to accrue on the Loan Amount on the date of this Note, and shall not accrue on the Loan Amount on the day on which it is paid.

J. Permitted Prepayment. Notwithstanding any provision in this Note to the contrary, Borrower may prepay this

Note at any time without penalty.

K. Non-Recourse. Lender and SBA shall have no recourse against any individual shareholder, member or partner of Borrower for non-payment of the Loan, except to the extent that such shareholder, member, or partner uses the loan proceeds for an unauthorized purpose.

L. Additional Terms.

"First Payment Date" means December 2, 2020.

"Monthly Installment(s)" means the eighteen (18) approximately equal installments of principal and interest, each payable on the Monthly Payment Dates, in the amount necessary to fully amortize the Loan after the final payment of the Monthly Installment on the Maturity Date and based on the amount of principal and interest outstanding on the First Payment Date, which principal and interest shall have been reduced by any amounts forgiven that have been reimbursed to Lender by the SBA.

"Monthly Payment Date(s)" means the First Payment Date, the same day of each month thereafter until and including April 2, 2022, and the Maturity Date.
