An act of fraud, embezzlement or theft;
A material violation of this Chairman Agreement by Chairman, which is not cured within 30 days after written notice thereof;

This Chairman Agreement is an employment agreement and nothing in the Company's policies, actions or this document shall be
construed to alter the nature of Executive's status with the Company as its Chairman of the Board. This Agreement may be terminated

law. If, however, this agreement is terminated without cause, Company shall pay to Executive an amount calculated by multiplying
the Executive's monthly salary, at the time of such termination, times the number of months remaining in the Initial Term (as
an example, if Agreement were terminated at the end of the 20th month of engagement, Chairman would be entitled to receive a one-lump
payment in cash equal to the remaining 16 months base compensation of the Initial Term at the time of termination. To further
illustrate, if the Chairman's monthly salary at the time of termination without cause was $12,500, the Chairman would receive
$12,500 times 16 or $200,000). In addition, if Executive is terminated without cause, Executive's Sign-on Bonus shares shall immediately
vest and Executive's Compensation Shares shall vest on a pro rata basis with the number of days from the first date of the Term
through the last date of employment as the numerator and the number of days from the first date of employment to August 31, 2019

then in effect.
This Chairman Agreement and Chairman's engagement may be terminated by the Company's Board of Directors at its discretion at any
time after the Initial Term, provided that in such case, Chairman shall be fully paid for all incentives and will be entitled
for a compensation for any and all of his invented products.
This Chairman Agreement may be terminated by Chairman at Chairman's discretion by providing at least ninety (90) days prior written
notice to Company. In the event of termination by Chairman pursuant to this subsection, Company may immediately relieve Chairman
of all duties and immediately terminate this Chairman Agreement, provided that Company shall pay Chairman at the then applicable
annual fee rate to the termination date included in Chairman's original termination notice.
In the event Company is acquired, or is the non-surviving party in a merger, or sells all or substantially all of its assets,
this Chairman Agreement shall not be terminated and the Company will ensure that the transferee or surviving company is bound
by the provisions of this Chairman Agreement and all shares grants and any other compensations shall vest and paid immediately.
In the event of Chairman's employment is terminated by reason of Executive's death,
the Company shall (i) pay Executive's designated beneficiary or beneficiaries, within thirty (30) days of Executive's death, in
a lump sum in cash twelve (12) months of Executive's Base Salary or Executive's Base Salary through the remainder of the year
in which Executive's death occurs, whichever is more, and (ii) any and all Annual Stock Compensation, Incentive Compensation,
