(1) GENERAL TERMS
(a) Payment of Principal. The "Maturity Date" shall be two years from the Issuance Date, unless an Event of Default (as defined below) shall have occurred and be continuing.
(b) Interest. Interest shall accrue at a rate of 12% (“Interest Rate”) per annum and shall be applied to the outstanding Original Principal Amount. Interest hereunder shall be paid on the Maturity Date (or sooner as provided herein) to the Holder or its assignee in whose name this Note is registered on the records of the Company regarding registration and transfers of Notes in cash, or in shares of common stock of the Company (the “Common Stock”) at the Conversion Price (as defined below).
(c) Security. This Note shall not be secured by any collateral or any assets pledged to the Holder.
(i) Prepayment. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Company shall have the right to prepay all or any portion of the outstanding Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon, without penalty or premium, upon no less than ten business days’ prior notice to the Holder provided that (i) such amount must be paid in cash on the next business day following such 10 business day notice period, and (ii) the Holder may still convert this Note pursuant to the terms hereof at all times until such prepayment amount has been received in full.
(2) TERMS OF FUTURE FINANCINGS.
(a) So long as this Note is outstanding, upon any issuance by the Company of any security, or an amendment to a security that was issued before the date hereof, with any term that the Holder reasonably believes is more favorable to the holder of such security or with a term in favor of the holder of such security that the Holder reasonably believes was not similarly provided to the Holder, (I) the Company shall notify the Holder of such additional or more favorable term within one (1) business day of the issuance and/or amendment (as applicable) of the respective security, and (ii) such term, at Holder’s option, shall become a part of this Note regardless of whether the Company has complied with the notification provision of this section. The types of terms contained in another security that may be more favorable to the holder of such security include, but are not limited to, terms addressing conversion discounts, prepayment rate, conversion lookback periods, interest rates, and original issue discounts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the issuance of any security which is an Exempt Issuance (as defined below) shall not entitle to the Holder to such more favorable term.
(3) CONVERSION OF NOTE. This Note shall be convertible into shares of the Company's Common Stock, on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 3.
(i) "Conversion Amount" means the portion of the Original Principal Amount and interest to be converted.
(ii) "Conversion Price" shall be the lower of (a) $1.00, if the conversion herein occurs prior a Qualified Offering, or (b) a 25% discount of the price per share of Common Stock offered in the Qualified Offering, if the conversion herein occurs simultaneous with the Qualified Offering.
(iii) “Exempt Issuance” shall mean the issuance of (a) shares of Common Stock or options to employees, officers or directors of the Company pursuant to any stock or option plan duly adopted for such purpose, (b) securities upon the exercise or exchange of or conversion of any Shares issued hereunder and/or other securities exercisable or exchangeable for or convertible into shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on the date of this Agreement, unless an amendment thereto effects or changes the conversion price thereof or provides the holder thereof with a term which is more favorable than the term on effect as of the date hereof (in which case such amendment would not be considered an Exempt Issuance), and (c) securities issued pursuant to acquisitions or strategic transactions approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.
(iv) “Qualified Offering” shall mean an offering of Common Stock (and other securities potentially) resulting in the listing for trading of the Common Stock on the NYSE American, the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Nasdaq Global Market, the Nasdaq Global Select Market or the New York Stock Exchange (or any successors to any of the foregoing).
(v) “VWAP” means the thirty (30) day volume weighted average of the closing price of a share of Common Stock as listed or quoted on the market in which the shares of the Company are then traded or listed.
(a) Optional Conversion. The Holder may, in its sole discretion, determine to convert all or part of the outstanding Principal Amount due hereunder and any accrued interest thereon into fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Price. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of any Conversion Amount pursuant to this Section 3(a) shall be equal to the quotient of dividing the Conversion Amount by the Conversion Price. The Company shall not issue any fraction of a share of Common Stock upon any conversion. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Common Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Common Stock up to the nearest whole share. The Company shall pay any and all transfer agent fees, legal fees, costs and any other fees or costs that may be incurred or charged in connection with the issuance of shares of the Company’s Common Stock to the Holder arising out of or relating to the conversion of this Note; provided, however, that the Holder shall pay any transfer taxes.
(b) Mandatory Conversion. Simultaneous with the consummation of a Qualified Offering, the outstanding Principal Amount due hereunder and all accrued interest hereon shall automatically be converted into fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Price. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of any Conversion Amount pursuant to this Section 3(b) shall be equal to the quotient of dividing the Conversion Amount by the Conversion Price. The Company shall not issue any fraction of a share of Common Stock upon any conversion. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Common Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Common Stock up to the nearest whole share. The Company shall pay any and all transfer agent fees, legal fees, costs and any other fees or costs that may be incurred or charged in connection with the issuance of shares of the Company’s Common Stock to the Holder arising out of or relating to the conversion of this Note; provided, however, that the Holder shall pay any transfer taxes.
(c) Conversion Notice.
(i) To convert any portion of this Note into shares of Common Stock on any date (a "Conversion Date") pursuant to Section 3(a), the Holder shall (A) transmit by email, facsimile (or otherwise deliver), for receipt on or prior to 5:30 p.m., Pacific Time, on such date, a copy of an executed notice of conversion in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the "Conversion Notice") to the Company. On or before the tenth business day following the date of receipt of a Conversion Notice (the "Share Delivery Date"), the Company shall (A) if legends are not required to be placed on certificates of Common Stock pursuant to the then existing provisions of Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933 (“Rule 144”) and provided that the transfer agent for the Company is participating in the Depository Trust Company's ("DTC") Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled to the Holder's or its designee's balance account with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system or (B) if a restrictive legend is required to be placed on the certificates of Common Stock, issue and deliver to the address as specified in the Conversion Notice, a certificate, registered in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled, with a restrictive legend imposed thereon.
(ii) Book-Entry. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon conversion of any portion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to the Company unless (A) the full Conversion Amount represented by this Note is being converted at the option of the Holder or (B) the Holder has provided the Company with prior written notice (which notice may be included in a Conversion Notice) requesting reissuance of this Note upon physical surrender of this Note. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the Principal and Interest converted and the dates of such conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Company, so as not to require physical surrender of this Note upon conversion.
(d) Limitations on Conversions or Trading.
(i) Beneficial Ownership. The Company shall not effect any conversions of this Note and the Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Note or receive shares of Common Stock as payment of interest hereunder to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion or receipt of such interest payment, the Holder, together with any affiliate thereof, would beneficially own (as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules promulgated thereunder) in excess of 9.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion or receipt of shares as payment of interest. Since the Holder will not be obligated to report to the Company the number of shares of Common Stock it may hold at the time of a conversion hereunder, unless the conversion at issue would result in the issuance of shares of Common Stock in excess of 9.99% of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock without regard to any other shares which may be beneficially owned by the Holder or an affiliate thereof, the Holder shall have the authority and obligation to determine whether the restriction contained in this Section will limit any particular conversion hereunder and to the extent that the Holder determines that the limitation contained in this Section applies, the determination of which portion of the principal amount of this Note is convertible shall be the responsibility and obligation of the Holder. If the Holder has delivered a Conversion Notice for a principal amount of this Note that, without regard to any other shares that the Holder or its affiliates may beneficially own, would result in the issuance in excess of the permitted amount hereunder, the Company shall notify the Holder of this fact and shall honor the conversion for the maximum principal amount permitted to be converted on such Conversion Date in accordance with Section 3(a) and, any principal amount tendered for conversion in excess of the permitted amount hereunder shall remain outstanding under this Note. The provisions of this Section may be waived by Holder upon written notification to the Company.
(e) Dilutive Issuance. If the Company, at any time while this Note is outstanding, issues, sells or grants (or has issued, sold or granted as of the issue date, as the case may be) any option to purchase, or sells or grants any right to reprice, or otherwise disposes of, or issues (or has sold or issued, as the case may be, or announces any sale, grant of any option to purchase or other disposition), any Common Stock or other securities convertible into, exercisable for, or that otherwise entitle any person or entity the right to acquire, shares of Common Stock, in each or any case at an effective price per share that is lower than the then Conversion Price (such lower price, the “Base Conversion Price” and such issuances, collectively, a “Dilutive Issuance”) (it being agreed that if the holder of the Common Stock or other securities so issued shall at any time, whether by operation of purchase price adjustments, reset provisions, floating conversion, or exchange prices or otherwise, due to warrants, options or rights per share which are issued in connection with such issuance, be entitled to receive shares of Common Stock at an effective price per share that is lower than the Conversion Price, such issuance shall be deemed to have occurred for less than the Conversion Price on such date of the Dilutive Issuance), then the Conversion Price shall be reduced, at the option of the Holder, to a price equal to the Base Conversion Price. If the Company enters into a variable rate transaction the Company shall be deemed to have issued Common Stock pursuant to this provision at the lowest possible price per share at which such securities could be issued in connection with such variable rate transaction. Such adjustment shall be made whenever such Common Stock or other securities are issued. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no adjustment will be made under this Section 3(e) in respect of an Exempt Issuance. In the event of an issuance of securities involving multiple tranches or closings, any adjustment pursuant to this Section 3(e) shall be calculated as if all such securities were issued at the initial closing.
(f) Other Provisions.
(i) The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized Common Stock the full number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of all outstanding amounts under this Note.
(ii) All calculations under this Section 3 shall be rounded off to the nearest $0.001.
(iii) Nothing herein shall limit a Holder's right to pursue actual damages or declare an Event of Default pursuant to Section 2 herein for the Company's failure to deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock upon conversion within the period specified herein and such Holder shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief, in each case without the need to post a bond or provide other security. The exercise of any such rights shall not prohibit the Holder from seeking to enforce damages pursuant to any other Section hereof or under applicable law.
(4) EVENTS OF DEFAULT.
(a) An “Event of Default”, wherever used herein, means any one of the following events (whatever the reason and whether it shall be voluntary or involuntary or effected by operation of law or pursuant to any judgment, decree or order of any court, or any order, rule or regulation of any administrative or governmental body):
(i) The Company's failure to pay to the Holder any amount of the then outstanding Original Principal Amount or Interest when and as due under this Note;
