In consideration of the mutual promises and covenants contained in this Agreement, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1. Authorization; Sale of Notes.
1.1 Authorization. The Company has duly authorized the sale and issuance, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement of Convertible Promissory Notes in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B in the aggregate principal amount of up to $________ (each a “Note” and, collectively, the “Notes”).
1.2 Use of Proceeds. The Company will use the proceeds from the sale of the Notes for working capital and other operational expenses, as well as potentially pay down higher cost debt or make acquisitions.
2. Closing. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the closing (the “Closing”) of the sale and purchase of Notes under this Agreement shall take place remotely via the exchange of documents and signatures on the date hereof (the date of such Closing, the “Closing Date”). At the Closing, the Company shall deliver a Note to each Purchaser participating in the Closing in the original principal amount set forth next to such Purchaser’s name on its signature page hereto, and each Purchaser shall pay to the Company the purchase price therefor, which shall be equal to such original principal amount.
3. Certain Terms of the Notes.
3.1 Maturity. Each Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of (i) on or after ____________, 20__ (the “Maturity Date”) or (ii) the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined below).
3.2 Interest. The principal balance of the Notes will bear simple interest at a rate of One Percent (1%) per annum payable in cash.
3.3 Payments. Any payments on the Notes will be made in proportion to the outstanding principal amount each such Note represents relative to the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Notes. The Company shall not prepay any portion of the Notes without the prior written consent of each Purchaser.
3.4 Conversion; Sale of Company.
(a) Conversion Price. The conversion price shall be the lower of (i) Seven Dollars ($7.00) per share of the Company’s common stock, $0.000001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), or (ii) 85% of the price to the public in an underwritten offering of Common Stock that occurs substantially concurrently with an initial listing of the Common Stock on any of the NYSE American, the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Nasdaq Global Market, the Nasdaq Global Select Market or the New York Stock Exchange (such underwritten offering, the “Uplisting Offering”), in each case subject to the anti-dilution adjustments set forth in Section 4 (the “Conversion Price”).
(b) Upon a Sale of the Company. The Company shall notify the holders of then outstanding Notes of the closing of a Company Sale (as defined below) at least fifteen (15) days prior to the expected closing of such Company Sale. Upon the closing of such Company Sale, each Purchaser shall have the right, but not obligation, to convert in whole or in part of the Note plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the date of such conversion. A “Company Sale” shall occur upon the sale, conveyance, or other disposition of majority of the Company’s assets or the Company’s merger with or into, or consolidation with, any other entity (other than a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company) or any other transaction or series of related transactions as a result of which less than fifty percent (50%) of the voting power of the surviving entity (or, if the surviving entity is a wholly-owned subsidiary of another entity, the ultimate parent of the surviving entity) is held by persons that are stockholders of the Company as of immediately prior to such event; provided, however, that a merger effected exclusively for the purpose of changing the domicile of the Company shall not be deemed to be a Company Sale; and provided, further, that the term “Company Sale” shall not apply to equity financings primarily for capital-raising purposes.
3.5 Effect of Conversion, Etc. Upon conversion of any Note pursuant to this Section 3, provided that the securities issued upon such conversion are duly and validly issued and are nonassessable, the Company will be forever released and discharged from all of its obligations and liabilities under such Note, including without limitation the obligation to pay the principal amount and accrued interest. No fractional shares shall be issuable by the Company upon conversion of any Note. In lieu of any fractional share which would otherwise be issuable upon conversion of any Note, the Company shall pay to the holder of such Note an amount in cash equal to the product of such fraction multiplied by the applicable conversion price. Upon conversion of each Note, the holder thereof shall surrender such Note, duly endorsed, at the principal offices of the Company. Following such surrender, the Company will, at its expense, issue and deliver to such holder a certificate or certificates for the securities to which such holder is entitled as a result of such conversion and pay, or cause to be paid, to such holder for any cash amounts payable in lieu of any fractional share in accordance with this Section 3.5.
3.6 Events of Default. Each of the following shall constitute an “Event of Default,” unless waived in writing by the Purchasers:
(a) the failure by the Company to pay any amount due hereunder within 21 days of the due date thereof;
(b) a material breach of any covenant contained in the Notes or other debt obligations of the Company; or
(c) the appointment of a receiver of any property, the assignment or trust mortgage for the benefit of creditors, the commencement of any kind of insolvency proceedings under any bankruptcy or other law relating to the relief of debtors, or the entry of an order for relief with respect to the Company in any proceeding pursuant to the United States Bankruptcy Code, as amended.
4. Anti-dilution Adjustments. The Conversion Price, and the number and type of securities to be received upon conversion of this Note, shall be subject to adjustment as follows:
4.1 Common Stock Dividend, Subdivision, Combination, Share Split, Recapitalization or Reclassification of Common Stock. In the event that the Company shall at any time or from time to time prior to the conversion or payment of this Note, effect a subdivision or combination of its outstanding Common Stock or in the event of a reclassification, recapitalization, share split, share combination, bonus issue or other distribution payable in securities of the Company or any other Person, then, and in each such case, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such event shall be proportionally adjusted (and any other appropriate actions shall be taken by the Company) so that the Purchasers shall be entitled to receive the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that the Purchasers would have owned or would have been entitled to receive upon or by reason of any of the events described above, had this Note been converted immediately prior to the occurrence of such event. An adjustment made pursuant to this Section 4.1 shall become effective retroactively (x) in the case of any such dividend or distribution, to a date immediately following the close of business on the record date for the determination of holders of Common Stock entitled to receive such dividend or distribution or (y) in the case of any such subdivision, combination, reclassification, recapitalization or share split, to the close of business on the day upon which such corporate action becomes effective.
4.2 Other Changes. If the Company at any time or from time to time, prior to the conversion of this Note, shall take any action affecting its Common Stock or share capital similar to or having an effect similar to any of the actions described in Section 4.1, then, and in each such case, the Conversion Price shall be adjusted in such manner as would be equitable in the circumstances.
4.3 Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment pursuant to this Section 4, the Company at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and furnish to each Purchaser a certificate setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based.
4.4 No Impairment. The Company will not, by any voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by the Company, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this Section 4 and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of Purchasers against impairment.
4.5 Cash Distributions. In the event that the Company shall at any time or from time to time prior to the conversion or payment of the Note declare or make any distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of Common Stock as a dividend, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including any dividend or distribution to the Company’s stockholders in cash or shares (or rights to acquire shares) of capital stock of a subsidiary (i.e., a spin-off)) (a “Distribution”), then the holder of the Note shall be entitled, concurrently with the payment of such Distribution to the Company’s stockholders, to receive the amount of such assets which would have been payable to the holder of the Note with respect to the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Note had the holder of the Note been the holder of such shares of Common Stock on the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to such Distribution.

1. Interest. The principal balance of this Note outstanding from time to time shall bear simple interest at the applicable interest rate specified in the Purchase Agreement. Such interest shall accrue and shall be due and payable annually, at the anniversary date of the date of issuance of this Note each year.

4.2 Mandatory Conversion. Upon the closing of an Uplisting Offering, the entire outstanding principal balance and all unpaid accrued interest on this Note shall automatically convert into shares of the Company’s Common Stock at the Conversion Price. The Company shall notify in writing the Holder of this Note of such mandatory conversion and the number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock into which the outstanding principal balance and unpaid accrued interest on this Note is then convertible.
