If the Commission does not declare the Registration Statement effective prior to 6:01 PM Eastern Standard Time on November 30, 2021, this Agreement shall expire and the Company shall again owe the Partial Debt Amount, without any further interest, to SMDMM (along with the Company owing the Remaining Debt Amount to SMDMM in accordance with the terms of any promissory notes evidencing the Remaining Debt Amount).


  3. Conflicts. In the event that there is a conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and the Notes, the terms stated herein shall prevail.


  4. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, including facsimile and scanned versions, each of which when so executed shall be deemed an original and all of which shall constitute together one and the same instrument, and shall be effective upon execution by all of the parties.
