Exhibit 10.7
 
 AMENDMENT NO. 1
TO

This Amendment No. 1 to the Convertible Promissory Note (this "Amendment") is executed as of November 19, 2012, by EPAZZ, INC., an Illinois corporation (the “Maker”); and ASHER ENTERPRISES, INC., a Delaware corporation, or its assigns ("Holder") to amend the Convertible Promissory Note dated  July 24, 2012 (the "Note").

The Maker and the Holder desire to amend the Note and further agree as follows:

1.          Capitalized Terms.  Except as expressly provided in this Amendment, all capitalized terms used in this Amendment have meanings ascribed to them in the Note and those definitions are incorporated by reference into this Note.

2.          Section 1.1 of the Note shall be deleted and the following shall be substituted therefor:

 
“Conversion Right.  The Holder shall have the right from time to time, and at any time on or prior to the later of (i) the Maturity Date and (ii) the date of payment of the Default Amount (as defined in Article III) pursuant to Section 1.6(a) or Article III, each in respect of the remaining outstanding principal amount of this Note to convert all or any part of the outstanding and unpaid principal amount of this Note into fully paid and non- assessable shares of Common Stock, as such Common Stock exists on the Issue Date, or any shares of capital stock or other securities of the Borrower into which such Common Stock shall hereafter be changed or reclassified at the conversion price  (the “Conversion Price”) determined as provided herein (a “Conversion”); provided, however, that in no event shall the Holder be entitled to convert any portion of this Note in excess of that portion of this Note upon conversion of which the sum of (1) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its affiliates (other than shares of Common Stock which may be deemed beneficially owned through the ownership of the unconverted portion of the Notes or the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other security of the Borrower subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitations contained herein) and (2) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the portion of this Note with respect to which the determination of this proviso is being made, would result in beneficial ownership by the Holder and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.  For purposes of the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and Regulations 13D-G thereunder.  The number of shares of Common Stock to be issued upon each conversion of this Note shall be determined by dividing the Conversion Amount (as defined below) by the applicable Conversion Price then in effect on the date specified in the notice of conversion, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Notice of Conversion”), delivered to the Borrower by the Holder in accordance with Section 1.4 below; provided that the Notice of Conversion is submitted by facsimile (or by other means resulting in, or reasonably expected to result in, notice) to the Borrower before 6:00 p.m., New York, New York time on such conversion date (the “Conversion Date”).  The term “Conversion Amount” means, with respect to any conversion of this Note, the sum of (1) the principal amount of this Note to be converted in such conversion plus (2) at the Borrower’s option, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on such principal amount at the interest rates provided in this Note to the Conversion Date, provided, however, that the Company shall have the right to pay any or all interest in cash plus (3) at the Borrower’s option, Default Interest, if any, on the amounts referred to in the immediately preceding clauses (1) and/or (2) plus (4) at the Holder’s option, any amounts owed to the Holder pursuant to Sections 1.3 and 1.4(g) hereof

3.          Section 1.2(a) of the Note shall be deleted and the following shall be substituted therefor:

Calculation of Conversion Price.  The Conversion Price shall be the greater of: (i) the Variable Conversion Price (as defined herein) and (ii) the Fixed Conversion Price (as defined herein) (subject, in each case, to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by the Borrower relating to the Borrower’s securities or the securities of any subsidiary of the Borrower, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar events).  The "Variable Conversion Price" shall mean 59% multiplied by the Market Price (as defined herein) (representing a discount rate of 41%).  “Market Price” means the average of the lowest five (5) Trading Prices (as defined below) for the Common Stock during the ten (10) Trading Day period ending on the latest complete Trading Day prior to the Conversion Date.  “Trading Price” means, for any security as of any date, the closing bid price on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board, or applicable trading market (the “OTCBB”) as reported by a reliable reporting service (“Reporting Service”) designated by the Holder (i.e. Bloomberg) or, if the OTCBB is not the principal trading market for such security, the closing bid price of such security on the principal securities exchange or trading market where such security is listed or traded or, if no closing bid price of such security is available in any of the foregoing manners, the average of the closing bid prices of any market makers for such security that are listed in the “pink sheets” by the National Quotation Bureau, Inc.  If the Trading Price cannot be calculated for such security on such date in the manner provided above, the Trading Price shall be the fair market value as mutually determined by the Borrower and the holders of a majority in interest of the Notes being converted for which the calculation of the Trading Price is required in order to determine the Conversion Price of such Notes.  “Trading Day” shall mean any day on which the Common Stock is tradable for any period on the OTCBB, or on the principal securities exchange or other securities market on which the Common Stock is then being traded.  “Fixed Conversion Price” shall mean $0.00009.

If the Maker is unable to issue any shares under this provision due to the fact that there is an insufficient number of authorized and unissued shares available, the Holder promises not to force the Maker to issue these shares or trigger an Event of Default, provided that Maker takes immediate steps required to get the appropriate level of approval from shareholders or the board of directors, where applicable to raise the number of authorized shares to satisfy the Notice of Conversion.
 
4.          Section 1.6(d) of the Note shall be deleted and the following heading and language shall be substituted therefor:

Adjustment Due to Dilutive Issuance.  [INTENTIONALLY DELETED].

5.           The last sentence of Section 1.7 of the Note shall be deleted and replaced with the following:

Once the Maximum Share Amount has been issued, if the Borrower fails to eliminate any prohibitions under applicable law or the rules or regulations of any stock exchange, interdealer quotation system or other self-regulatory organization with jurisdiction over the Borrower or any of its securities on the Borrower’s ability to issue shares of Common Stock in excess of the Maximum Share Amount, in lieu of any further right to convert this Note, the liquidated damages that will be due is the amount of unconverted principal and Default Interest accrued through the date of conversion.

6.           Section 3.7 of the Note will be deleted and the following language inserted in its place:

Bankruptcy.  Bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or liquidation proceedings or other proceedings, being only those that were entered into on a voluntary basis, for relief under any bankruptcy law or any law for the relief of debtors shall be instituted by or against the Borrower or any subsidiary of the Borrower.

7.           Section 3.8 of the Note will be deleted and the following language inserted in its place:

Delisting of Common Stock For Reasons Within the Maker’s Control.  The Borrower shall fail to maintain the listing of the Common Stock on at least one of the OTCBB or an equivalent replacement exchange, the OTCQB tier maintained by OTC Markets Group, Inc. (“OTCQB”) the Nasdaq National Market, the Nasdaq SmallCap Market, the New York Stock Exchange, or the American Stock Exchange for reasons that are within the Maker’s control.

8.           Counterparts.  This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original as against the party whose signature appears thereon, and all of which shall together constitute one and the same instrument.  This Amendment shall become binding when one or more counterparts hereof, individually or taken together, shall bear the signatures of all the parties reflected hereon as the signatories.

9.           Third Parties.  Except as specifically set forth or referred to herein, nothing herein express of implied is intended or shall be construed to confer upon or give to any person other than the parties hereto and their permitted successors or assigns, any claims, rights, remedies under or by reason of this Amendment.

10.           Governing Law.  This Amendment shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed entirely within such State and the federal laws of the United States of America, without regard to the conflict of laws rules thereof.
