(b) In addition to the foregoing Conversion Right, the Corporation grants to Holder “piggy-back” registration rights as follows: (i) in the event that the Corporation shall authorize the preparation and filing of a registration statement under the Act for the benefit of selling shareholders (the “Selling Shareholder Registration Statement”), the Corporation will provide the Holder written notice not less than twenty (20) business days prior to the intending filing of the Selling Shareholder Registration Statement (the “Registration Notice”); (ii) the Holder, within ten (10) business days of receipt of the Corporation’s Registration Notice, at Holder’s sole election, deliver to the Corporation a Conversion Notice with respect to all or such portion of the Principal and Interest then due and payable on the Note that Holder desires to convert under Holder’s Conversion Right; and (iii) the Corporation shall include in the Selling Shareholder Registration Statement such number of Holder’s Shares that shall be issuable pursuant to the Holder’s Conversion Notice, together with any other Shares in the name of the Holder or Holder’s designee(s), to the maximum extent permissible pursuant to the provisions of Rule 415 promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Act in order to permit the public resale by the Holder or Holder’s designee(s) of their respective Shares.

Holder shall have all rights provided and all remedies available under the laws of the State of Delaware as a creditor of the Corporation upon such Event of Default.
