The Holder shall have the right immediately and until this Note is fully paid, to convert the entire outstanding and unpaid portion of this Note, at the election of the Holder (the date of giving of such notice of conversion being a "Conversion Date") into fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock as such stock exists on the date of issuance of this Note (such shares, the “Conversion Shares”), or any shares of capital stock of Borrower into which such Common Stock shall hereafter be changed or reclassified, at the conversion price per share equal to equal to 50% of the lowest closing bid price of the Common Stock as reported on the exchange upon which the Common Stock is traded for any of the four trading days including the day upon which a Notice of Conversion is received by the Company, provided such Notice of Conversion is delivered by fax to the Company between the hours of 4 P.M.
