WHEREAS, Section 4(d) of the SPA prohibits the Company from conducting any equity financing during the period beginning on the Closing Date (as defined in the SPA) and ending twelve (12) months following the Closing Date unless the Company first delivers to AJB a written notice describing the proposed offering and providing AJB an option to purchase the securities being offered in such offering (the “Right of First Refusal”);


WHEREAS, Section 2.3 of the Note prohibits the Company from incurring any liability for borrowed money so long as the Company has any obligation under the Note (the “Borrowing Restriction”); and


WHEREAS, in connection with the issuance of the GHS Note and the Future Offerings, AJB desires to: (i) waive the Right of First Refusal, the Borrowing Restriction, and any other restrictions set forth in the SPA and the Note that may prohibit the Company from issuance of securities in the Future Offerings (collectively, the “Restrictions”) and (ii) consent to the issuance of the GHS Note and the effecting of the Future Offerings.

(c) This Agreement constitutes a waiver and consent and is limited to the matters expressly consented to and waived herein.

“o. Commitment Fee Shares. The Company shall pay to Buyer, as a commitment fee, Two Hundred Fifty Thousand and No/100 United States Dollars (US$250,000.00) (the “Commitment Fee”) by issuing to Buyer that number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock equal to such amount at a per share price of $0.01. It is agreed that the number of shares of Common Stock issuable to Buyer under this Section 4(o) shall be 25,000,000 (the “Commitment Fee Shares”). The Commitment Fee Shares are issuable by the Company’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”) in three (3) certificates or book entry statements, in two certificates representing 6,250,000 of the Commitment Fee Shares issuable to the Buyer immediately upon the Company’s execution of this Agreement and an additional certificate representing 12,500,000 shares issuable to the Holder not later than November 8th, 2021. The Buyer shall never be in possession of an amount of Common Stock greater than 4.99% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock of the Company provided, however that this ownership restriction described in this Section may be waived by Buyer, in whole or in part, upon 61 days’ prior written notice. In the event such certificates representing the Commitment Fee Shares issuable hereunder shall not be delivered to the Buyer, same shall be an immediate default under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents.
