$[Principal Amount]

 [Date], 2021


 Boulder, CO


For value received, SOBR Safe, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), promises to pay to [Holder Name], an individual, or his assigns (the “Holder”) the principal sum of [________________] Dollars ($[_______]). The principal hereof and any unpaid accrued interest thereon shall be due and payable on or before 5:00 p.m., Pacific Standard Time, on [Date], 2023 (the “Maturity Date”) (unless such payment date is accelerated as provided in Section 5 hereof). Payment of all amounts due hereunder shall be made at the address of the Holder provided for in Section 9 hereof. Interest shall accrue on the outstanding principal amount beginning on [Date], 2021, at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum, compounded annually based on a 365-day year and shall continue on the outstanding principal until paid in full. The Holder may elect to have the interest due hereunder to be either paid in cash monthly or have the interest accrue and be payable on the Maturity Date. Such election will be indicated on the signature page hereof. For investors that elect to accrue the interest due hereunder, the interest will be paid in cash or may be converted into shares of our common stock under the same terms as the principal amount on the Maturity Date. The principal amount paid by Holder to the Company will be submitted to the Law Offices of Craig V. Butler pursuant to the terms of that certain Private Placement Memorandum dated January 15, 2021.


1. HISTORY OF THE SECURED DEBENTURE. This Secured Debenture is being delivered pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement by and between the Company and the Holder, dated of even date hereof and in connection with the Private Placement Memorandum dated January 15, 2021. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Securities Purchase Agreement.


2. PREPAYMENT. The Company may at any time, upon thirty (30) days written notice (each a “Prepayment Notice”), prepay all or any part of the principal balance of this Secured Debenture, provided that concurrently with each such prepayment the Company shall pay accrued interest on the principal, if any, prepaid to the date of such prepayment. Any Prepayment Notice must contain the amount of principal and interest to be prepaid by the Company. The end of the thirty-day period following a Prepayment Notice shall be referred to as a “Prepayment Date.” In the event that the Company sends a Prepayment Notice to Holder, Holder may elect prior to the Prepayment Date to convert into common stock of the Company pursuant to Section 3 hereof, all or part of the amount of principal and interest to be repaid under the Prepayment Notice instead of receiving such prepayment.






(a) Voluntary Conversion. The Holder of this Secured Debenture is en-titled, at its option and subject to the other terms set forth herein, at any time beginning on the date hereof, and in whole or in part, to convert the outstanding principal amount of this Secured Debenture, or any portion of the principal amount hereof, --and any accrued interest, into shares of the com-mon stock of the Company. Any amounts the Holder elects to convert will be converted into common stock at a rate of Three Dollars ($3.00) per share. Any voluntary conversion shall be effectuated by giving a written notice (“Notice of Conversion”) to the Company on the date of conversion, stating therein the amount of principal and accrued interest due to Holder under this Secured Debenture being converted.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Holder may not convert any outstanding amounts due under this Secured Debenture if at the time of such conversion the amount of common stock issued for the conversion, when added to other shares of Company common stock owned by the Holder or which can be acquired by Holder upon exercise or conversion of any other instrument, would cause the Holder to own more than four and nine-tenths percent (4.9%) of the Company’s outstanding common stock.


(b) Automatic Conversion. Beginning on the date hereof, the outstanding principal amount of this Secured Debenture, and any accrued interest, will automatically convert into shares of the Company’s common stock if the Company’s common stock closes at or above $6.00 per share for five (5) consecutive trading days while listed on NASDAQ. Any amounts converted under this Section will convert into shares of common stock at a rate of Three Dollars ($3.00) per share. In the event of an automatic conversion under this Section, the shares of the Company’s common stock will be issued in the name of the Holder unless the Holder notifies the Company of a different name for the shares.


4. CONVERSION PRICE ADJUSTMENTS. In the event the Company should at any time after the date hereof do either of the following: i) fix a record date for the effectuation of a split or subdivision of the outstanding common stock of the Company, or ii) grant the holders of the Company’s common stock a dividend or other distribution payable in additional shares of common stock or other securities or rights convertible into additional shares of common stock without the payment of any consideration by such holder for the additional shares of common stock (a “Stock Adjustment”), then, as of the record date (or the date of the Stock Adjustment if no record date is fixed), the conversion price of this Secured Debenture shall be appropriately adjusted so that the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of this Secured Debenture is adjusted in proportion to such change in the number of outstanding shares in order to insure such Stock Adjustment does not decrease the conversion value of this Secured Debenture.




5. SECURITY INTEREST. This Secured Debenture shall be secured by a first priority security lien or security interest in the Company’s patents and patent application described in Exhibit A, attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference. The Company agrees to execute and deliver any and all documents, instruments, security agreements, pledge agreements, financing statements or other document or filings with the US Patent and Trademark office or any other governmental agency or authority.


6. DEFAULT. The occurrence of any one of the following events shall constitute an Event of Default:


(a) The non-payment, when due, of any principal or interest pursuant to this Secured Debenture;


(b) The material breach of any representation or warranty in this Secured Debenture. In the event the Holder becomes aware of a breach of this Section 6(b), then provided such breach is capable of being cured by Company, the Holder shall notify the Company in writing of such breach and the Company shall have thirty (30) business days after notice to cure such breach;


(c) The breach of any covenant or undertaking, not otherwise provided for in this Section 8;


(d) The commencement by the Company of any voluntary proceeding under any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency, readjustment of debt, receivership, dissolution, or liquidation law or statute of any jurisdiction, whether now or hereafter in effect; or the adjudication of the Company as insolvent or bankrupt by a decree of a court of competent jurisdiction; or the petition or application by the Company for, acquiescence in, or consent by the Company to, the appointment of any receiver or trustee for the Company or for all or a substantial part of the property of the Company; or the assignment by the Company for the benefit of creditors; or the written admission of the Company of its inability to pay its debts as they mature; or


(e) The commencement against the Company of any proceeding relating to the Company under any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency, adjustment of debt, receivership, dissolution or liquidation law or statute of any jurisdiction, whether now or hereafter in effect, provided, however, that the commencement of such a proceeding shall not constitute an Event of Default unless the Company consents to the same or admits in writing the material allegations of same, or said proceeding shall remain undismissed for 20 days; or the issuance of any order, judgment or decree for the appointment of a receiver or trustee for the Company or for all or a substantial part of the property of the Company, which order, judgment or decree remains undismissed for 20 days; or a warrant of attachment, execution, or similar process shall be issued against any substantial part of the property of the Company.


Upon the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, the Holder, may, by written notice to the Company, declare all or any portion of the unpaid principal amount due to Holder, together with all accrued interest thereon, immediately due and payable, in which event it shall immediately be and become due and payable, provided that upon the occurrence of an Event of Default as set forth in paragraph (d) or paragraph (e) hereof, all or any portion of the unpaid principal amount due to Holder, together with all accrued interest thereon, shall immediately become due and payable without any such notice.




7. TRANSFERABILITY. This Secured Debenture shall not be transferred, pledged, hypothecated, or assigned by the Holder without the express written consent of the Company, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld.


8. REGISTRATION RIGHTS. As described in the Private Placement Memorandum, the Company hereby agrees to file a Registration Statement on Form S-1 on or before June 1, 2021 and to register the shares underlying the conversion of this Secured Debenture for resale into the public marketplace. The Company expects the Registration Statement will be declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission approximately 3-4 months after filing. All expenses incurred by the Company in complying with this Section, including without limitation all registration and filing fees, listing fees, printing expenses, fees and disbursements of all independent accountants, or counsel for the Company and the expense of any special audits incident to or required by any such registration and the expenses of complying with the securities or blue sky laws of any jurisdiction shall be paid by the Company.
