All payments due hereunder shall be made at the address of the Holder as set forth in the Subscription Agreement, or at such other place as the Holder may designate from time to time in writing.
4.Convertibility of Note. At any time commencing seventy five (75) days after written notice to the Maker (which notice must be delivered on or before the Maturity Date), the unpaid principal amount of this Note and the accrued but unpaid interest shall at the option of the Holder be convertible in whole or in part into shares of Common Stock at a rate equal to $.125 per share. To the extent that the l older has not, on or before the Maturity Date, delivered the notice of conversion, as permitted by this Section 4, then, at the option of the Maker, exercised by written notice to Holder, any remaining amount of principal, interest or fees/charges due hereunder may be paid in U.

The issuance of the Common Stock upon conversion of this Note shall be subject to compliance with applicable securities laws. The Holder shall execute such documents as the Maker shall reasonably require to insure compliance with such laws.
5.Conversion of Note. Subject to Section 4, the conversion rights represented by this Note may be exercised in whole, or in part. by the surrender of this Note and the duly executed Notice of Conversion (the form of which is attached as Exhibit A), at the principal office of the Maker. Upon conversion, the Holder shall be entitled to receive. within a reasonable time, a certificate, issued in the Holder's name or in such name or names as the Holder may direct, which shall evidence the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion. The shares of common stock so acquired shall be deemed to be issued as of the close of business on the date on which the Notice of Conversion is received by the Maker. In the event the Note is converted in part, a replacement Note of like tenor evidencing the remaining principal amount owed after the Conversion shall be issued to the Holder.
6.Adjustments of Conversion Price. In the event of a merger, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization, or other change in the organizational structure of the Maker, reasonable and appropriate adjustments shall be made by the Board of Directors of the Maker (or if the Maker is not the surviving corporation in any such transaction, the Directors, Board of Directors or its equivalent of the surviving corporation) with respect to the shares of Common Stock the Holder is eligible to receive upon conversion of and pursuant to the terms of the Note. Any such adjustments shall be conclusive and binding on the Holder.
7.No Rights as Stockholders. Except as set forth below, this Note does not entitle the Holder to any voting rights or other rights as a Stockholder of the Maker prior to conversion and surrender of this Note. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Maker agrees, upon the request of the Holder, to transmit to the Holder such information, documents and reports, if any, as are generally distributed to holders of the Common Stock. Upon valid conversion and surrender of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall be deemed a Stockholder of Maker. If the Maker shall declare a dividend or other distribution (regardless of form) with respect to its outstanding common stock prior to the principal amount under this Note being converted into shares of common stock of Maker (whether on a voluntary or mandatory basis), then Holder shall, provided that amounts due under this Note are subsequently converted (in whole or in part) into shares of Maker's common stock. be entitled to receive, immediately following the issuance of common stock to Holder pursuant to conversion of this Note, the dividend or other distribution which would have been payable to the Holder had the common shares issued to him/it upon conversion of this Note been outstanding on the record date for the dividend or distribution in question. By way of illustration and not limitation, if Maker declared a cash dividend of $1.00 per share on its common stock outstanding on August 1, 2009, and Holder converted this Note into 1,000,000 shares of Maker's common stock on December 31, 2009, then, Holder would be entitled to be paid, immediately following conversion of this Note, dividends in the amount of $1,000,000 with respect to the 1,000,000 shares issued upon conversion (the product of $1.00 (amount of dividend per share) and the number of shares issued upon conversion (i.e., 1,000,000)).
8.Sale or Transfer of the Note and Underlying Shares of Common Stock; Legend. The Note and the underlying shares of Common Stock shall not be sold or transferred unless either (i) they first shall have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), and applicable state securities laws, or (ii) such sale or transfer is exempt from the registration requirements of the Act and applicable state securities laws. Each certificate, if any, representing the shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of this Note shall bear a legend substantially in the following form:

Prior to recognizing any transfer, the Company will be entitled to receive a written legal opinion of experienced securities counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company concerning compliance with federal and state securities laws; the expense of such legal opinion shall be paid by the transferor. Such shares of Common Stock may be subject to additional restrictions on transfer imposed under applicable foreign securities laws.
9.Modifications and Waivers. This Note may not be changed, waived, discharged or terminated except by an instrument in writing signed by the party against which enforcement of the same is sought.
11.Notices. Any notice, request or other document required or permitted to be given or delivered to the Holder or Maker shall be delivered, or shall be sent by certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, or recognized overnight courier (with signature required) to the Holder at his/its address shown on the books of the Maker or in the case of the Maker, at the address indicated above, or if different, at the principal office of the Maker.
