If at any time the Company does not have a sufficient number of Conversion Shares authorized and available, then the Company shall call and hold a special meeting of its stockholders within sixty (60) days of that time for the sole purpose of increasing the number of authorized shares of Common Stock.
Registration Rights. The Company is obligated to register the resale of the Conversion Shares under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or provide Holder with an appropriate exemption from registration.
Interest Payments. The interest so payable will be paid at the time of maturity or conversion to the person in whose name this Debenture is registered.

If paid in Common Stock, the amount of stock to be issued shall be calculated in accordance with the formula and procedure set forth in Section 1.02 above.

Amendments and Waiver of Default. The Debenture may be amended with the consent of Holder.

Events of Default.

The Holder may not enforce the Debenture except as provided herein.
Failure to Issue Unrestricted Common Stock. As indicated above, a breach by the Company under its obligation under the Registration Rights Agreement shall be deemed an Event of Default, which if not cured with ten (10) days, shall entitle the Holder accelerated full payment of all debentures outstanding. The Company acknowledges that failure to honor a Notice of Conversion shall cause hardship to the Holder.
Anti-dilution. In the event that the Company shall at any time subdivide the outstanding shares of Common Stock, or shall issue a stock dividend on the outstanding Common Stock, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision of the issuance of such dividend shall be proportionately decreased and, in the event that the Company shall at any time combine the outstanding shares of Common stock, the Conversion price in effect immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionally increased, effective at the close of business on the date of such subdivision, dividend or combination as the case may be.
