FOR VALUE RECEIVED, Yangtze River Development Limited, a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Nevada (hereinafter called “Borrower” or the “Company”), hereby promises to pay to Wight International Construction LLC, a limited liability company formed organized under the laws of the State of Delaware, with an address at 1720 Main Street NE Suite 4, Palm Bay, Florida, or its permitted registered assigns or successors in interest or order (the “Holder”), without demand, the sum of FIVE HUNDRED MILLION U.S. DOLLARS ($500,000,000) (the “Principal Amount”), with a simple interest at the annual rate of seven percent (7%). The “Maturity Date” of this Note shall be the date that is sixty (60) months from the date hereof (or November 16, 2021), subject to conversion and extension as provided in Section 2 or Section 1 hereof.


This 7% Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) has been executed and issued pursuant to the terms of a Contribution, Conveyance and Assumption Agreement between the Borrower and the Holder, dated of even date herewith (the “Contribution Agreement”) pursuant to which the Holder acquired this Note. This Note is not secured and is convertible as provided herein. Unless otherwise separately defined herein, all capitalized terms used in this Note shall have the same meaning as is set forth in the Contribution Agreement. The following terms shalt apply to this Note:





1.1. Interest Rate. Interest on this Note shall be simple interest and accrue from the date hereof on the outstanding Principal Amount, at the annual rate of seven percent (7%) per annum. Payment of accrued interest shall be deferred until the 3rd year anniversary from the date hereof (the “Deferred Interest”), at which time the Deferred Interest shall be due and payable. The interest accrued on the then outstanding Principal Amount in the 4th year shall be due and payable at the first business day of the 5th year and the interest accrued on the then outstanding Principal Amount in the 5th year shall be due and payable at the last business day of the 5th year. All computations of interest payable hereunder shall be on the basis of a 365-day year and actual days elapsed in the period for which such interest is payable.


The amount of Deferred Interest shall be reduced by the dividend distribution to the Borrower on certain 100,000,000 preferred B membership units in the Holder which the Borrower holds.


1.2. Maturity Date. The Maturity Date of this Note shall be the date that is sixty (60) months from the date hereof (or November 16, 2021); providedhowever, that prior to the last thirty (30) days before the Maturity Date, the Holder shall, upon written notice to the Borrower, have the right to rollover the Note and extend the Maturity Date of the Note from Maturity Date for up to twenty-four (24) months upon the same terms and conditions set forth herein.








2.1. Holder’s Voluntary Conversion Rights.


(a) For so long as this Note remains outstanding and not fully paid, the Holder shall have the right, but not the obligation, to convert all or any portion of the then aggregate outstanding Principal Amount of this Note, together with any accrued and unpaid interest thereon, into shares of Common Stock of the Borrower or its successor in interest (the “Conversion Shares”), subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Article II, at $10.00 per share of Company common stock (the “Common Stock”) (as may be adjusted as provided herein, the “Conversion Price”), which transaction may be referred to herein as a “Subsequent Financing”. The Holder may exercise such right by delivery to the Borrower of a written Notice of Conversion pursuant to Section 2.2. For the purposes of this Note “Common Stock Equivalents” means any securities of the Company which would entitle the holder thereof to acquire at any time Common Stock, including, without limitation, any debt, preferred stock, right, option, warrant or other instrument that is at any time convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for, or otherwise entitles the holder thereof to receive, Common Stock.


(b) If an Event of Default (as hereinafter defined) has occurred, then the Conversion Price shall not be reduced, but shall continue to be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2.3 below.


2.2. Mechanics of Holder’s Conversion. In the event that the Holder elects to convert any amounts outstanding under this Note into Common Stock the Holder shall give notice to the Borrower of such election by delivering an executed and completed notice of conversion (a “Notice of Conversion”) pursuant to Section 4.2 which Notice of Conversion shall provide a breakdown in reasonable detail of the Principal Amount and accrued interest. Upon each conversion of the Principal Amount of this Note and in accordance with its Notice of Conversion, the Borrower shall make the appropriate reduction to the Principal Amount and accrued and unpaid interest. To effect conversions hereunder, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to Borrower unless the entire principal amount of this Note has been so converted. No fractional Conversion Shares shall be issued upon conversion of this Note. Instead of any fractional shares that would otherwise be issuable upon conversion of this Note, the Borrower shall pay a cash adjustment in respect of such fractional share in an amount equal to the same fraction of the Conversion Price then in effect.


2.3. Adjustments to Conversion Price.


(a) The number of Conversion Shares to be issued upon each conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 2 shall be determined by dividing that portion of the Principal Amount and interest to be converted, if any, by the then applicable Conversion Price.


(b) The Conversion Price and number and kind of shares or other securities to be issued upon conversion shall be subject upon the happening of certain events while this conversion right remains outstanding, as follows:


i. Merger, Sale of Assets, etc. If (A) the Company effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another entity, (B) the Company effects any sale of all or substantially all of its assets in one or a series of related transactions, (C) any tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another entity) is completed pursuant to which holders of Common Stock are permitted to tender or exchange their shares of Common Stock for other securities, cash or property, (D) the Company consummates a stock Share Exchange Agreement or other business combination (including, without limitation, a reorganization, recapitalization, spin-off or scheme of arrangement) with one or more persons or entities whereby such other persons or entities acquire more than the 50% of the outstanding Common Stock (not including any shares of Common Stock held by such other persons or entities making or party to, or associated or affiliated with the other persons or entities making or party to, such stock Share Exchange Agreement or other business combination), (E) any “person” or “group” (as these terms are used for purposes of Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the 1934 Act) is or shall become the “beneficial owner” (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the 1934 Act), directly or indirectly, of 50% of the aggregate Common Stock of the Company, or (F) the Company effects any reclassification of the Common Stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Common Stock is effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property (in any such case, a “Fundamental Transaction”), this Note, as to the unpaid principal portion thereof and accrued interest thereon, shall thereafter be deemed to evidence the right to convert into such number and kind of shares or other securities and property as would have been issuable or distributable on account of such Fundamental Transaction, upon or with respect to the securities subject to the conversion right immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction. The foregoing provision shall similarly apply to successive Fundamental Transactions of a similar nature by any such successor or purchaser. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the provisions of this Section shall apply to such securities of such successor or purchaser after any such Fundamental Transaction.





ii. Reclassification, etc. If the Company at any time shall, by reclassification or otherwise, change the Common Stock into the same or a different number of securities of any class or classes, this Note, as to the unpaid principal portion hereof and accrued interest hereon, shall thereafter be deemed to evidence the right to convert into an adjusted number of such securities and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the Common Stock immediately prior to such reclassification or other change.


iii. Stock Splits, Combinations and Dividends. If the Common Stock are subdivided or combined into a greater or smaller number of shares of Common Stock, or if a dividend is paid on the Common Stock by issuance of Common Stock, the Conversion Price shall be proportionately reduced in case of subdivision of shares or stock dividend or proportionately increased in the case of combination of shares, in each such case by the ratio which the total number of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such event bears to the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such event.


(d) Whenever the Conversion Price is adjusted pursuant to this Section 2.3, the Company shall promptly mail to the Holder a notice setting forth the Conversion Price after such adjustment and setting forth a statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.


2.4 Issuance of Replacement Note. Upon any loss or destruction of this Note, a replacement Note containing the same date and provisions of this Note shall be issued by the Company to the Holder for the outstanding Principal Amount of this Note and accrued interest which shall not have been converted or paid.


2.5 Notice of Conversion. Notice of Conversion shall be transmitted by the Borrower’s transfer agent to the Holder by (1) crediting the account of the Holder’s broker with the Depository Trust Company through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission (“DWAC”) system if the Company is then a participant in such system and either (A) there is an effective registration statement permitting the resale of the Conversion Shares by the Holder or (B) the Conversion Shares are eligible for resale without volume or manner-of-sale limitations pursuant to Rule 144, or (ii) if the conditions specified in (i)(A) or (i)(B) are not satisfied, by physical delivery to the address specified in Section 4.2.

3.4 Breach of Representations and Warranties. Any material representation or warranty of the Borrower made in the Share Exchange Agreement shall be false or misleading in any material respect as of the Issue Date, except to the extent such representation or warranty is made as of a different date in which case such representation or warranty shall have been -false or misleading in any material respect as of such date.

43 Amendment Provision. The term “Note” and all reference thereto, as used throughout this instrument, shall mean this instrument as originally executed, or if later amended or supplemented or reissued, then as so amended or supplemented or reissued.


4.4 Assignees. This Note, and the conversion rights described herein, shall not be assignable by the Holder without the prior written consent of the Borrower, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Subject to the restrictions of the preceding sentence, the rights and obligations of the Borrower and the Holder shall be binding upon and benefit the successors, assign, heirs, administrators and transferees of the parties.


4.5 Cost of Collection. In the event that Holder is required to take legal or other action to enforce its rights or obtain collection under this Nate, Borrower shall pay the Holder hereof reasonable costs of collection, or enforcement of the terms hereof, including attorneys’ fees.


4.6 Governing Law. This Note shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including, but not limited to, New York statutes of limitations. Any action brought by either party against the other concerning the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be brought only in the State Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York (or any federal courts having jurisdiction of such area). Both parties and the individual signing this Agreement on behalf of the Borrower agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. In the event that any provision of this Note is invalid or unenforceable under any applicable statute or rule of law, then such provision shall be deemed inoperative to the extent that it may conflict therewith and shall be deemed modified to conform with such statute or rule of law. Any such provision which may prove invalid or unenforceable under any law shall not affect the validity or unenforceability of any other provision of this Note. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed or operate to preclude the Holder from bringing suit or taking other legal action against the Borrower in any other jurisdiction to realize on any collateral or any other security for such obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other decision in favor of the Holder.





4.7 Maximum Payments. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to establish or require the payment of a rate of interest or other charges in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law. In the event that the rate of interest required to be paid or other charges hereunder exceed the maximum permitted by such law {such as, without limitation, the usury laws), any payments in excess of such maximum shall be credited against amounts owed by the Borrower to the Holder and thus refunded to the Borrower, or if no further amounts are owed by the Borrower to the Holder, shall be refunded to the Borrower. Borrower hereby irrevocable consents to the reformation of this Note, as may be necessary by a court of law, so as to enable enforcement of this Note pursuant to summary judgment or summary proceeding. For avoidance of doubt, in the event that, for any reason, a finding by a court having jurisdiction over this Note is made that limits enforceability as a result of excessive interest or other origination or investment banking fees pursuant to the laws of any jurisdiction, then, such defense shall not be deemed to bar a summary proceeding or summary judgment on the Note but rather, the Note shall be fully and absolutely enforceable as to all principal and, the court having jurisdiction shall, after an inquest, have power to reform the Note so as to reduce interest amount to such amount as is immediately enforceable pursuant to summary judgment or summary proceeding and grant such award, plus any legal or enforcement fees of Holder(s).


4.8. Construction and Enforcement. Each party acknowledges that its legal counsel participated in the preparation of this Note and, therefore, stipulates that the rule of construction that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not be applied in the interpretation of this Note to favor any party against the other. This Note reflects an investment made by Holder or its assignor to the Borrower. This Note is intended as, and shall be deemed an unconditional obligation of Borrower for the payment of money only and, without limitation to any other remedies of Holder (such as, without limitation, summary judgment after initiation of a proceeding, or equitable remedies), shall be enforceable against Borrower by summary proceeding in lieu of or after filing of a complaint, pursuant to New York Civil Procedure Law Rule 3213, or any similar rule or statute in the jurisdiction where enforcement is sought. For purposes of such rule or statute, any other document or agreement to which Holder and Borrower are parties or which Borrower delivered to Holder, which may be convenient or necessary to determine Holder’s rights hereunder or Borrower’s obligations to Holder are deemed a part of this Note, whether or not such other document or agreement was delivered together herewith or was executed apart from this Note.

4.11 Non-Business Days. Whenever any payment or any action to be made shall be due on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday under the laws of the State of New York, such payment may be due or action shall be required on the next succeeding business day and, for such payment, such next succeeding day shall be included in the calculation of the amount of accrued interest payable on such date.
