ARTICLE IV.

 

Section 4.01     Usury Savings Clause. Notwithstanding any provision in this Debenture or the other Transaction Documents to the contrary, the total liability for payments of interest and payments in the nature of interest, including, without limitation, all charges, fees, exactions, or other sums which may at any time be deemed to be interest, shall not exceed the limit imposed by the usury laws of the jurisdiction governing this Debenture or any other applicable law. In the event the total liability of payments of interest and payments in the nature of interest, including, without limitation, all charges, fees, exactions or other sums which may at any time be deemed to be interest, shall, for any reason whatsoever, result in an effective rate of interest, which for any month or other interest payment period exceeds the limit imposed by the usury laws of the jurisdiction governing this Debenture, all sums in excess of those lawfully collectible as interest for the period in question shall, without further agreement or notice by, between, or to any party hereto, be applied to the reduction of the outstanding principal balance due hereunder immediately upon receipt of such sums by the Holder hereof, with the same force and effect as though the Company had specifically designated such excess sums to be so applied to the reduction of the principal balance then outstanding, and the Holder hereof had agreed to accept such sums as a penalty-free payment of principal; provided, however, that the Holder may, at any time and from time to time, elect, by notice in writing to the Company, to waive, reduce, or limit the collection of any sums in excess of those lawfully collectible as interest, rather than accept such sums as a prepayment of the principal balance then outstanding. It is the intention of the parties that the Company does not intend or expect to pay, nor does the Holder intend or expect to charge or collect any interest under this Debenture greater than the highest non-usurious rate of interest which may be charged under applicable law.

Holder shall not be deemed, by any act of omission or commission, to have waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by Holder, and then only to the extent specifically set forth in the writing.

Section 7.01     Conversion of Debenture. At any time and from time to time while this Debenture is outstanding on or after the Closing Date, but only upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the SPA or any other Transaction Documents, this Debenture may be, at the sole option of the Holder, convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Article VII.

At any time while this Debenture is outstanding on or after the Closing Date, but only upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the SPA or any other Transaction Documents, the Holder may convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal, accrued and unpaid interest, redemption premium, and any other sums due and payable hereunder or under any of the other Transaction Documents (such total amount, the “Conversion Amount”) into shares of Common Stock of the Company (the “Conversion Shares”) at a price equal to: (i) the Conversion Amount (the numerator); divided by (ii) eighty-five percent (85%) of the average daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s Common Stock during the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the Conversion Date (as defined below) as indicated in the conversion notice (in the form attached hereto as Exhibit “B”, the “Conversion Notice”) (the denominator) (the “Conversion Price”); provided, however, no conversion hereunder shall be effected if the Conversion Price is less than $0.01 per share.

(2)          The Holder’s Conversion Limitations. Except upon the occurrence of an Event of Default hereunder or under the SPA or any other Transaction Documents, the Company shall not affect any conversion of this Debenture, and the Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Debenture, to the extent that after giving effect to the conversion set forth on the Conversion Notice submitted by the Holder, the Holder (together with the Holder’s affiliates (as defined herein) and any Persons acting as a group together with the Holder or any of the Holder’s affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined herein). To ensure compliance with this restriction, prior to delivery of any Conversion Notice, the Holder shall have the right to request that the Company provide to the Holder a written statement of the percentage ownership of the Company’s Common Stock that would by beneficially owned by the Holder and its affiliates in the Company if the Holder converted such portion of this Debenture then intended to be converted by Holder. The Company shall, within two (2) Business Days of such request, provide Holder with the requested information in a written statement, and the Holder shall be entitled to rely on such written statement from the Company in issuing its Conversion Notice and ensuring that its ownership of the Company’s Common Stock is not in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation. The restriction described in this Section may be waived by Holder, in whole or in part, upon sixty-one (61) days’ prior notice from the Holder to the Company. For purposes of this Debenture, the “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall be 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Debenture.  The limitations contained in this Section shall apply to a successor holder of this Debenture.

(b)     Company’s Response. Upon receipt by the Company of a copy of a Conversion Notice, the Company shall as soon as practicable, but in no event later than two (2) Business Days after receipt of such Conversion Notice, send, via facsimile or electronic mail (or otherwise deliver) a confirmation of receipt of such Conversion Notice (the “Conversion Confirmation”) to the Holder indicating that the Company will process such Conversion Notice in accordance with the terms herein. In the event the Company fails to issue its Conversion Confirmation within said two (2) Business Day time period, the Holder shall have the absolute and irrevocable right and authority to deliver the fully executed Conversion Notice to the Company’s transfer agent, and pursuant to the terms of the SPA, the Company’s transfer agent shall issue the applicable Conversion Shares to Holder as hereby provided. Within five (5) Business Days after the date of the Conversion Confirmation (or the date of the Conversion Notice, if the Company fails to issue the Conversion Confirmation), provided that the Company’s transfer agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer (“FAST”) program, the Company shall cause the transfer agent to (or, if for any reason the Company fails to instruct or cause its transfer agent to so act, then pursuant to the SPA, the Holder may request and require the Company’s transfer agent to) electronically transmit the applicable Conversion Shares to which the Holder shall be entitled by crediting the account of the Holder’s prime broker with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission (“DWAC”) system, and provide proof satisfactory to the Holder of such delivery. In the event that the Company’s transfer agent is not participating in the DTC FAST program and is not otherwise DWAC eligible (or in the event the Holder otherwise requests), within five (5) Business Days after the date of the Conversion Confirmation (or the date of the Conversion Notice, if the Company fails to issue the Conversion Confirmation), the Company shall instruct and cause its transfer agent to (or, if for any reason the Company fails to instruct or cause its transfer agent to so act, then pursuant to the SPA, the Holder may request and require the Company’s transfer agent to) issue and surrender to a nationally recognized overnight courier for delivery to the address specified in the Conversion Notice, a certificate, registered in the name of the Holder or its nominee, for the number of Conversion Shares to which the Holder shall be entitled. To effect conversions hereunder, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Debenture to the Company unless the entire principal amount of this Debenture, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and other sums due hereunder, has been so converted. Conversions hereunder shall have the effect of lowering the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture in an amount equal to the applicable conversion.  The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the principal amount(s) converted and the date of such conversion(s).  The Holder, and any assignee by acceptance of this Debenture, acknowledge and agree that, by reason of the provisions of this paragraph, following conversion of a portion of this Debenture, the unpaid and unconverted principal amount of this Debenture may be less than the amount stated on the face hereof.

 

(c)     Record Holder. The Person(s) entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon a conversion of this Debenture shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder(s) of such shares of Common Stock as of the Conversion Date.

 

(d)     Failure to Deliver Certificates. If in the case of any Conversion Notice, the certificate or certificates are not delivered to or as directed by the Holder by the date required hereby, the Holder shall be entitled to elect by written notice to the Company at any time on or before its receipt of such certificate or certificates, to rescind such Conversion Notice, in which event the Company shall promptly return to the Holder any original Debenture delivered to the Company and the Holder shall promptly return to the Company the Common Stock certificates representing the principal amount of this Debenture unsuccessfully tendered for conversion to the Company.

(e)     Obligation Absolute; Partial Liquidated Damages. The Company’s obligations to issue and deliver the Conversion Shares upon conversion of this Debenture in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof, the recovery of any judgment against any person or entity or any action to enforce the same, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination, or any breach or alleged breach by the Holder or any other person or entity of any obligation to the Company or any violation or alleged violation of law by the Holder or any other person or entity, and irrespective of any other circumstance which might otherwise limit such obligation of the Company to the Holder in connection with the issuance of such Conversion Shares; provided, however, that such delivery shall not operate as a waiver by the Company of any such action the Company may have against the Holder. In the event the Holder of this Debenture shall elect to convert any or all of the outstanding principal amount hereof and accrued but unpaid interest thereon in accordance with the terms of this Debenture, the Company may not refuse conversion based on any claim that the Holder or anyone associated or affiliated with the Holder has been engaged in any violation of law, agreement or for any other reason, unless an injunction from a court, on notice to Holder, restraining and or enjoining conversion of all or part of this Debenture shall have been sought and obtained, and the Company posts a surety bond for the benefit of the Holder in the amount of 150% of the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture being converted, which is subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the underlying dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to such Holder to the extent it obtains judgment. In the absence of such injunction, the Company shall issue Conversion Shares upon a properly noticed conversion. If the Company fails for any reason to deliver to the Holder such certificate or certificates representing Conversion Shares pursuant to timing and delivery requirements of this Debenture, the Company shall pay to such Holder, in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of principal amount being converted, $1.00 per day for each day after the date by which such certificates should have been delivered until such certificates are delivered. Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue actual damages or declare an Event of Default pursuant this Debenture or any agreement securing the indebtedness under this Debenture for the Company’s failure to deliver Conversion Shares within the period specified herein and such Holder shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity, including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief. The exercise of any such rights shall not prohibit the Holder from seeking to enforce damages pursuant to any other Section hereof or under applicable law. Nothing herein shall prevent the Holder from having the Conversion Shares issued directly by the Company’s transfer agent in accordance with the SPA, in the event for any reason the Company fails to issue or deliver, or cause its transfer agent to issue and deliver, the Conversion Shares to the Holder upon exercise of Holder’s conversion rights hereunder.

 

(f)          Transfer Taxes. The issuance of certificates for shares of the Common Stock on conversion of this Debenture shall be made without charge to the Holder hereof for any documentary stamp or similar taxes, or any other issuance or transfer fees of any nature or kind that may be payable in respect of the issue or delivery of such certificates, any such taxes or fees, if payable, to be paid by the Company.

(4)     Make-Whole Rights. Upon liquidation by the Holder of Conversion Shares issued pursuant to a Conversion Notice, provided that the Holder realizes a net amount from such liquidation equal to less than the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant Conversion Notice (such net realized amount, the “Realized Amount”), the Company shall issue to the Holder additional shares of the Company’s Common Stock equal to: (i) the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant Conversion Notice; minus (ii) the Realized Amount, as evidenced by a reconciliation statement from the Holder (a “Sale Reconciliation”) showing the Realized Amount from the sale of the Conversion Shares; divided by (iii) the average volume weighted average price of the Company’s Common Stock during the five (5) Business Days immediately prior to the date upon which the Holder delivers notice (the “Make-Whole Notice”) to the Company that such additional shares are requested by the Holder (the “Make-Whole Stock Price”) (such number of additional shares to be issued, the “Make-Whole Shares”). Upon receiving the Make-Whole Notice and Sale Reconciliation evidencing the number of Make-Whole Shares requested, the Company shall instruct its transfer agent to issue certificates representing the Make-Whole Shares, which Make Whole Shares shall be issued and delivered in the same manner and within the same time frames as set forth in Subsection (3)(b) above. Subsections (3)(c), (3)(d), (3)(e) and (3)(f) above shall be applicable to the issuance of the Make-Whole Shares. The Make-Whole Shares, when issued, shall be deemed to be validly issued, fully paid, and non-assessable shares of the Company’s Common Stock. Following the sale of the Make-Whole Shares by the Holder: (i) in the event that the Holder receives net proceeds from such sale which, when added to the Realized Amount from the prior relevant Conversion Notice, is less than the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant Conversion Notice, the Holder shall deliver an additional Make-Whole Notice to the Company following the procedures provided previously in this paragraph, and such procedures and the delivery of Make-Whole Notices shall continue until the Conversion Amount has been fully satisfied; (ii) in the event that the Holder received net proceeds from the sale of Make-Whole Shares in excess of the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant Conversion Notice, such excess amount shall be applied to satisfy any and all amounts owed hereunder in excess of the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant Conversion Notice.

(b)     Fundamental Transaction. If, at any time while this Debenture is outstanding: (i) the Company effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another Person, (ii) the Company effects any sale of all or substantially all of its assets in one transaction or a series of related transactions, (iii) any tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another Person) is completed pursuant to which holders of Common Stock are permitted to tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property, or (iv) 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”), then upon any subsequent conversion of this Debenture, the Holder shall have the right to receive, for each Conversion Share that would have been issuable upon such conversion immediately prior to the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction, the same kind and amount of securities, cash or property as it would have been entitled to receive upon the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction if it had been, immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, the holder of one (1) share of Common Stock (the “Alternate Consideration”).  For purposes of any such conversion, the determination of the Conversion Price shall be appropriately adjusted to apply to such Alternate Consideration based on the amount of Alternate Consideration issuable in respect of one (1) share of Common Stock in such Fundamental Transaction, and the Company shall apportion the Conversion Price among the Alternate Consideration in a reasonable manner reflecting the relative value of any different components of the Alternate Consideration.  If holders of Common Stock are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then the Holder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it receives upon any conversion of this Debenture following such Fundamental Transaction.  To the extent necessary to effectuate the foregoing provisions, any successor to the Company or surviving entity in such Fundamental Transaction shall issue to the Holder a new note consistent with the foregoing provisions and evidencing the Holder’s right to convert such note into Alternate Consideration. The terms of any agreement pursuant to which a Fundamental Transaction is effected shall include terms requiring any such successor or surviving entity to comply with the provisions of this Section and insuring that this Debenture (or any such replacement security) will be similarly adjusted upon any subsequent transaction analogous to a Fundamental Transaction.

 

(c)     Adjustment to Conversion Price.  Whenever the Conversion Price is adjusted pursuant to any provision of this Debenture, the Company shall promptly deliver to Holder a notice setting forth the Conversion Price after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.

 

(6)     Notice to Allow Conversion by Holder.  If: (A) the Company shall declare a dividend (or any other distribution in whatever form) on the Common Stock, (B) the Company shall declare a special nonrecurring cash dividend on or a redemption of the Common Stock, (C) the Company shall authorize the granting to all holders of the Common Stock of rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any shares of capital stock of any class or of any rights, (D) the approval of any stockholders of the Company shall be required in connection with any reclassification of the Common Stock, any consolidation or merger to which the Company is a party, any sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, of any compulsory share exchange whereby the Common Stock is converted into other securities, cash or property, or (E) the Company shall authorize the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company, then, in each case, the Company shall cause to be filed at each office or agency maintained for the purpose of conversion of this Debenture, and shall cause to be delivered to the Holder at its last address as it shall appear upon the Company’s records, at least twenty (20) calendar days prior to the applicable record or effective date hereinafter specified, a notice stating: (x) the date on which a record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution, redemption, rights or warrants, or if a record is not to be taken, the date as of which the holders of the Common Stock of record to be entitled to such dividend, distributions, redemption, rights or warrants are to be determined, or (y) the date on which such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange is expected to become effective or close, and the date as of which it is expected that holders of the Common Stock of record shall be entitled to exchange their shares of the Common Stock for securities, cash or other property deliverable upon such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange, provided that the failure to deliver such notice or any defect therein or in the delivery thereof shall not affect the validity of the corporate action required to be specified in such notice.  The Holder is entitled to convert this Debenture during the 10-day period commencing on the date of such notice through the effective date of the event triggering such notice.
