purposes hereof, shall include any amount which, under applicable law, is deemed to be interest,
whether or not such amount is characterized by the parties as interest) in excess of the maximum
amount permitted by such laws. If any excess of interest is unintentionally contracted for,
charged or received under the Note or under the terms of any other agreement or instrument between
the parties, the rate of interest shall be reduced to the maximum rate of interest allowed under

fees and expenses, incurred by Holder in collecting or enforcing this Note.
SECTION 9. WAIVERS; CONSENT TO JURISDICTION.
9.1 Waivers by Maker. Maker hereby waives presentment, demand for payment, notice of
dishonor, notice of protest and all other notices or demands in connection with the delivery,
acceptance, performance or default of this Note.
9.2 Actions of Holder not a Waiver. No delay by Holder in exercising any power or
right hereunder shall operate as a waiver of any power or right, nor shall any single or partial
exercise of any power or right preclude other or further exercise thereof, or the exercise of any
other power or right hereunder or otherwise; and no waiver or modification of the terms hereof
shall be valid unless set forth in writing by Holder and then only to the extent set forth therein.
9.3 Consent to Jurisdiction. Maker hereby irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of
any state or federal court sitting in the State of Delaware over any suit, action, or proceeding
arising out of or relating to this Note or any other agreements or instruments with respect to
Holder. Maker hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection
that Maker may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such suit, action, or proceeding
brought in any such court and any claim that any such suit, action, or proceeding brought in any
such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. Final judgment in any such suit, action, or
proceeding brought in any such court shall be conclusive and binding upon Maker and may be enforced
in any court in which Maker is subject to jurisdiction by a suit upon such judgment, provided that
service of process is effected upon Maker as provided in this Note or as otherwise permitted by
9.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. MAKER WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR
CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY DEALINGS BETWEEN MAKER AND HOLDER RELATING TO
THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS NOTE. THE SCOPE OF THIS WAIVER IS INTENDED TO BE ALL-ENCOMPASSING OF
ANY AND ALL DISPUTES THAT MAY BE FILED IN ANY COURT AND THAT RELATE TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS
NOTE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CONTRACT CLAIMS, TORT CLAIMS, AND ALL OTHER COMMON LAW AND
STATUTORY CLAIMS. THIS WAIVER IS IRREVOCABLE, MEANING THAT IT MAY NOT BE MODIFIED EITHER ORALLY OR
IN WRITING, AND THIS WAIVER SHALL APPLY TO ANY SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENTS, SUPPLEMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS
TO THIS AGREEMENT OR TO ANY OTHER DOCUMENT OR AGREEMENT RELATING TO THE LOAN.
9.5 Service of Process. Maker hereby consents to process being served in any suit,
action, or proceeding instituted in connection with this Note by delivery of a copy thereof by
certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to Maker, and/or by delivery of a copy
thereof to a registered agent of Maker. Refusal to accept delivery, and/or avoidance of delivery,
shall be deemed to constitute delivery. Maker irrevocably agrees that service in accordance with
this Section 9.5 shall be deemed in every respect effective service of process upon Maker in any
such suit, action or proceeding, and shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be taken and
held to be valid personal service upon Maker. Nothing in this Section 9.5 shall affect the right of
Holder to serve process in any manner otherwise permitted by law or limit the right of Holder
otherwise to bring proceedings against Maker in the courts of any jurisdiction or jurisdictions.
SECTION 10. COVENANTS.
10.1 Affirmative Covenants. So long as this Note shall remain outstanding:
(a) Office. Maker shall maintain its principal office, and the majority of its
employees, assets and operations, in the United States.

(i) Operating expenses and other obligations of the Company incurred in the ordinary
course of business or in pursuing the Company’s business plan and strategy;

(iv) Expenses of accountants, attorneys, consultants and other professionals (including,
without limitation, the expenses of Investor described in Section 4.11 of the
Recapitalization Agreement) relating to the recapitalization of Maker,
in each case only to the extent that both the nature and the amount of such expenses are in
conformity with the budget (and any amendments thereof) approved in advance in writing by Holder.
Maker will not use the proceeds from this Note for any other purpose. Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, none of the proceeds will be used, without prior written agreement by
the Holder, (i) to purchase or carry (or refinance any borrowing, the proceeds of which were used
to purchase or carry) any “security” within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended
(the “Securities Act”), (ii) to repay any indebtedness or discharge any obligation to an person or
entity, other than as provided in Section 10.1(b)(i)-(iv) above, , or (iii) to engage in business
activities which would cause a violation of 13 CFR 107.720. This latter limitation prohibits,
without limitation, the use of proceeds, other than as provided in Section 10.1(b)(i)-(iv) above:
(i) directly or indirectly, for providing funds to others; (ii) for the purchase or discounting of
debt obligations; (iii) for factoring or long-term leasing of equipment with no provision for
maintenance or repair; (iv) for engaging in real estate transactions such that Maker could
reasonably be classified under Major Group 65 (Real Estate) of the SIC Manual; (v) for business
activities wherein the assets of the business of Maker (the “Business”) will be reduced or
consumed, generally without replacement, as the life of the Business progresses, and the nature of
the Business does not require that a stream of cash payments be made to the financing sources of
the Business, on a basis associated with the continuing sale of assets (examples of such businesses
would include real estate development projects, the financing and production of motion pictures,
and oil and gas well exploration, development and production); (vi) for a foreign operation; (vii)
to provide capital to a corporation licensed or sub-licensed under the Small Business Investment
Act, (viii) to acquire farm land, (ix) to fund production of a single item or defined limited
number of items generally over a defined production period, such
production to constitute the majority, of the activities of Maker (examples include electric

limited to, activities which are in violation of law) or inconsistent with free competitive
enterprise, in each case, within the meaning of Section 107.720 of Title 13 of the Code of Federal
(c) Seniority. Except as otherwise expressly provided, and except for security
interests and liens described in items 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Schedule 14.11 of the Disclosure Schedule
attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Disclosure Schedule”), the indebtedness evidenced by this Note:
(i) shall be senior in all respects to all other indebtedness or obligations of Maker of any kind,
direct or indirect, contingent or otherwise, other than obligations of Maker owed directly to the
state or federal government, and other than any other indebtedness or obligations of Maker to
Holder; (ii) shall be pari passu with any other indebtedness or obligations of Maker to Holder;
and (iii) shall not be made subordinate or subject in right of payment to the prior payment of any
other indebtedness or obligation of any kind, direct or indirect, contingent or otherwise, other
than obligations of Maker owed directly to the state or federal government, and other than any
other indebtedness or obligations of Maker to Holder.
(d) No Conflicting Agreements. Maker shall not enter into any agreement that would
materially impair, interfere or conflict with Maker’s obligations hereunder. Without Holder’s
prior written consent, Maker shall not permit the inclusion in any material contract to which it
becomes a party of any provisions that could or might in any way result in the creation of a
security interest in any assets of Maker.
(e) Disclosure of Material Adverse Events. Within three (3) business days of Maker
obtaining knowledge thereof, Maker will notify Holder in writing of any event that may have a
material adverse effect on the business, affairs, prospects, operations, properties, assets,
liabilities, structure or condition, financial or otherwise, of the Company (as such business is
presently conducted and/or as it is proposed to be conducted), or on any material assets or any
Intellectual Property or other assets developed, owned, controlled, licensed, possessed, or used by
Maker, or to which Maker has any right, option, entitlement or claim. Operating expenditures in
the ordinary course of business and in accordance with budgets (and any amendments thereto)
approved in writing in advance by Holder shall not be deemed to be material adverse events solely
because they weaken Maker’s financial condition in the absence of new equity financing of Maker.
(f) Financial Information. So long as any principal and/or interest under this Note
shall remain outstanding:
(i) Promptly after the end of each fiscal year (but in any event prior to February 28
of each year) and at such other times as Holder may reasonably request, Maker shall deliver
to Holder a written assessment, in form and substance satisfactory to Holder, of the
economic impact of such Holder’s financing hereunder, specifying the full-time equivalent
jobs created or retained in connection with such investment, and the impact of the financing
on Maker’s business in terms of revenues and profits and on taxes paid by Maker and its
(ii) Maker shall provide on a timely basis to Holder all financial information
requested from time to time by Holder, including without limitation its
quarterly and annual
balance sheet and income statement. Such financial information shall be certified by a
member of Maker’s senior management. Financial information required shall also include such
information as would be necessary for Holder to file form 468 with the SBA, if it were
(iii) In addition to the information specified in Section 10.1(f)(i) and (ii) above,
upon request, Maker agrees promptly to provide Holder with sufficient additional information
to provide any other information reasonably requested or required by any governmental agency
asserting jurisdiction over Holder.
(g) Access. So long as any principal and/or interest under this Note shall remain
outstanding, Maker shall permit Holder and its agents or representatives to visit and inspect
Maker’s properties, to examine its books of account and records and to discuss Maker’s affairs,
finances and accounts with its officers, all at such times during normal business hours as
reasonably may be requested by Holder.
(i) Business Activity. As long as this Note shall remain outstanding, Maker shall
make no change in its business activity that would make it or any of its business activities
non-compliant with SBA regulations and guidelines.
10.2 Negative Covenants. So long as this Note shall remain outstanding:
(a) Indebtedness. Maker shall not incur additional indebtedness, beyond the
indebtedness already existing as of the date hereof, for borrowed money in excess of $10,000, in
aggregate, other than indebtedness incurred in the ordinary course of business in accordance with a
budget (and any amendments thereto) approved in writing by Holder, or in pursuing the Company’s
business plan and strategy approved in writing by Holder. In no event shall Maker issue, or make
any promises, commitments, undertakings, agreements or letters of intent to issue, any indebtedness
directly or indirectly exercisable for or convertible into any equity of Maker, except as expressly
provided in Section 10.2(d) hereof.
(b) Liens. Maker shall not grant to any person or entity a security interest, lien,
license, or other encumbrance of any kind, direct or indirect, contingent or otherwise, in, to or
upon any assets of Maker, including, without limitation, any intellectual property of any kind, as
defined in Exhibit A hereto (the “Intellectual Property”).

otherwise dispose of or encumber (including, without limitation through licensing or partnering
arrangements) or abandon, conceal, injure or destroy any material assets (whether tangible or
intangible) of Maker, other than with the prior written approval of Holder and in the ordinary
course of business.
(d) Issuance of Capital Stock. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Note or
any applicable agreement or document, except for (a) any transaction pursuant to an
Proposal that Maker accepts in accordance with the fiduciary exception provided in Section 3.2 of
the Recapitalization Agreement or (b) shares of Capital Stock issuable upon exercise or conversion
of warrants or convertible securities outstanding prior to February 1, 2004, Maker shall not
without Holder’s prior written approval: (i) issue any shares of Capital Stock (as defined in
Section 12.1 hereof) or other securities, or any instruments exercisable for or convertible into
Capital Stock or other securities, or (ii) make any promises, commitments, undertakings, agreements
or letters of intent for any of the issuances described in (i) hereof.
(e) Distributions and Redemptions. Maker shall not declare or pay any dividends or
make any distributions of cash, property or securities of Maker with respect to any shares of its
common stock, preferred stock or any other class or series of its stock, or, directly or indirectly
(except for repurchases of common stock by Maker in accordance with the terms of employee benefit
plans or written agreement between Maker and any of its employees approved by the Board of
Directors of Maker prior to February 1, 2004), redeem, purchase, or otherwise acquire for any
consideration any shares of its common stock or any other class of its stock.

approval, on a case by case basis.
(h) Facilities. Maker shall not purchase, lease, hire, rent or otherwise acquire
directly or indirectly any rights in or to any asset or facility outside of the ordinary course of
business in an amount in excess of $10,000, in aggregate, or agree, promise or commit to do so,
except in accordance with the Maker’s budget that has been approved by the Maker’s board of
directors and the Holder.
(i) Expenses. Maker shall make no expenditures in excess of $10,000 in aggregate
other than in accordance with a budget (including any amendments thereto) pre-approved by Holder.
Maker shall not deviate, during the period covered by such budget, more than $10,000 in
aggregate from the budget approved by Holder, nor take any action or make any promise,
undertaking or commitment that would result in Maker incurring or accumulating payables and/or
other financial obligations of any kind, whether current or deferred, direct or indirect, for
purposes other than as set forth in budgets expressly agreed to by Holder, and/or in any amounts in
excess of the amounts set forth in such agreed budgets, which equal or exceed $10,000 in
aggregate, and which have not been approved in writing in advance by Holder.

(i) Maker shall not change the nature of its business activity in a manner that would cause a
violation of 13 C.F.R. Section 107.720 and/or Section 107.760(b) (including, without limitation, by
undertaking real estate, film production or oil and gas exploration activities). In the event that
Maker changes the nature of its business activity such
that such change would render Maker
ineligible for financing pursuant to applicable SBA rules and regulations, Maker agrees to use its
best efforts to facilitate a transfer or redemption of any securities then held by Holder.
(ii) Maker will at all times comply with the non-discrimination requirements of 13 C.F.R.
Parts 112, 113 and 117.
(iii) For a period of at least one year after the date of this Note, Maker will locate no more
than 49 percent of the employees or tangible assets of Maker outside the United States.

enter into any understanding of any kind, direct or indirect, contingent or otherwise, to do any of
the foregoing in regard to Maker’s TFF devices or any similar device, without the prior written
consent of Holder in each case.
SECTION 11. GOOD FAITH INTERPRETATION OF PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
11.1 Good Faith Obligation. The parties hereto agree that, to the extent that there
is ambiguity regarding the intention of any provisions hereof, they will at all terms act in good
faith to interpret the relevant provisions hereof. This Section is not in any way intended to
limit the parties’ respective rights to remedies in the case of breach of any provision hereof by
SECTION 12. CONVERSION; WARRANTS; NO IMPAIRMENT
12.1 Holder’s Election. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Note or any
applicable agreement or document, from time to time and at any time on or before the later of the
maturity date of this Note or the full repayment of this Note, Holder may, in its sole discretion,
elect to (a) convert any or all of the principal and/or interest due under this Note into any class
or series of equity security of Maker (collectively, “Capital Stock”) that has been authorized
under Maker’s certificate of incorporation, as amended, including by any certificate of designation
(the “Charter”), and that Holder shall designate (the securities so elected being the “Holder
Designated Securities”), and/or (b) receive repayment, in whole or in part, of this Note.
12.2 Conversion. The principal and accrued interest on this Note shall be
convertible at the conversion price of four cents ($0.04) per share (or, in the case of conversion
into Series A-1 Preferred Stock, $1.60 per share), subject to
adjustment as provided in this Section 12.2. The conversion terms were determined on the
basis of market-based terms for the type and amount of financing provided by Holder, and the extent
of risk undertaken by Holder. In the event of changes in the Capital Stock of the Company which
the principal and interest on this Note is convertible into, by reason of stock dividends,
recapitalizations, reclassifications, combinations or exchanges of shares, separations,
reorganizations, liquidations, or the like, the conversion price of this Note shall be
correspondingly adjusted to give the Holder, on conversion, the total number, class, and kind of
shares as the Holder would have owned had the Note been converted prior to the event and had the
Holder continued to hold such shares until after the event requiring adjustment (subject to any
increased shares issuable by virtue of the accruing interest on the Note between such event and
12.3 Warrant. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Note or any applicable
agreement or document, Maker shall issue to Holder a warrant in the form attached hereto as Exhibit
C (the “Warrant”) for the purchase of shares of Capital Stock of the Company. The warrant coverage
shall be equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the principal and accrued interest on this Note.
The Warrant shall be issued by Maker upon execution of this Note. The number of warrant shares
shall be equal to the number of shares of Capital Stock that would be issuable to Holder, as
determined in accordance with Section 12.2, if Holder elected to convert the full principal and
accrued interest of this Note. For the avoidance of doubt, the 100% warrant coverage will be
effective regardless of whether or not Holder elects to convert any or all of the principal and/or
interest of this Note. The Warrant will be fully vested and exercisable upon issuance, and will
have an exercise period of seven (7) years from its date of issuance. The exercise price of the
Warrant shall be equal to the conversion price that would apply under Section 12.2 of this Note if
Holder elected to convert any principal and/or accrued interest under this Note into Capital Stock
of the Maker, regardless of whether Holder does elect to make any such conversion.
12.4 Cooperation; Good Faith; No Impairment. Maker shall not, by amendment of its
Charter or through a reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue
or sale of securities, or any other voluntary action, omission or agreement, avoid or seek to avoid
the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed by Maker under and/or
in connection with this Note, but shall at all times in good faith use best efforts to assist in
carrying out of all the provisions of and/or relating to this Note and in taking all such action as
may be necessary or appropriate to protect Holder’s rights, preferences and privileges under and/or
in connection with the Note against impairment. Holder’s rights, preferences and privileges
granted under and/or in connection with any Holder Designated Securities may not be amended,
modified or waived without the Holder’s prior written consent, and the documentation providing for
such rights, preferences and privileges will specifically provide as such.
SECTION 13. RESERVED.
SECTION 14. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.
Except as expressly set forth (with reference to a section in this Note) in the Disclosure

this Note has been duly authorized by all requisite corporate action by Maker in accordance with
Delaware law. This Note is a valid and binding obligation of Maker, enforceable against Maker in

of this Note and the Related Recapitalization Documents, and compliance with the provisions hereof

its properties or assets or (b) conflict with or result in any material breach of any of the terms,
conditions or provisions of, or constitute (with notice or lapse of time or both) a material
default (or give rise to any right of termination, cancellation or acceleration) under, or result
in the creation of, any encumbrance upon any of the material assets of Maker under, the Charter or
Bylaws of Maker (as they may be amended to date) or any agreement or instrument to which Maker is a
party. As used herein, “encumbrance” shall mean any liens, charges, encumbrances, equities,
claims, options, proxies, pledges, security interests, licenses or other similar rights of any
14.4 Compliance with Other Instruments. Maker is not in violation of any term of
Maker’s Charter, as amended, including any certificate of designation filed therewith, and/or

indenture, contract, agreement, instrument, judgment, decree, order, statute, rule or regulation to
which Maker or any of its assets, including without limitation its Intellectual Property, is
subject. To the best of Maker’s knowledge, no event has occurred which, with the passage of time
or the giving of notice, or both, would constitute a breach or violation, in any material respect,
under any applicable judgments, orders, writs, decrees, federal, state and/or local laws, rules or
regulations which would have a material adverse affect on the condition, financial or otherwise, or
operations of Maker (as it is currently conducted and as it is proposed to be conducted) or on any
material assets or any Intellectual Property owned, controlled, licensed, possessed, and/or
used by Maker. To the best of its knowledge, Maker has avoided every condition, and has not
performed any act, the occurrence of which would result in Maker’s loss of any right granted under
any license, distribution agreement or other agreement or Maker’s loss of any rights in or to any
of its assets.
14.5 Approvals. Maker has obtained all necessary permits, authorizations, waivers,
consents and approvals of or by, and made all necessary notifications of and/or filings with, all
applicable persons (governmental and private), in connection with the execution, delivery,

Related Recapitalization Documents, and consummation by Maker of the transactions contemplated
hereby and thereby, except as listed in Schedule 14.5.
14.6 Capitalization. The authorized capital stock of Maker consists of 800,000,000
shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share and 300,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, par
value of $0.001 per share. The number of shares of Common Stock, Series A convertible preferred
stock and Series A-1 convertible preferred stock issued and outstanding on the Effective Date of
this Note are set forth in Schedule 14.6. No other shares of any class or series of Maker’s
capital stock are authorized and/or issued and outstanding. All issued and outstanding shares of
capital stock of Maker have been duly authorized and validly issued, and are fully paid and
non-assessable, and have been offered, sold and delivered by Maker in compliance with all
applicable federal and state securities laws. The subscriptions, warrants, options, convertible
securities, and other rights (direct or indirect, contingent or otherwise) to purchase or otherwise
acquire any equity securities of Maker which are authorized or issued and outstanding are set forth
in Schedule 14.6. Except as set forth in Schedule 14.6, there is no agreement, promise,
commitment, undertaking or letter of intent of any kind (direct or indirect, contingent or
otherwise) by Maker to issue any shares, subscriptions, warrants, options, convertible securities,
or other such rights, or to distribute to holders of any of its equity securities any evidence of
indebtedness or asset. Except as set forth in Schedule 14.6, Maker has no obligation of any kind
(direct or indirect, contingent or otherwise) to purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire any of its
equity securities or any interest therein or to pay any dividend or make any other distribution in
14.7 Authorization of the Shares. Maker has authorized the issuance and sale of a
sufficient number of shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, and Common
Stock of the Maker to fully implement the Recapitalization Plan, while maintaining such additional
authorized but unissued shares as reasonably determined by Holder to be appropriate. Of such
authorized shares, a sufficient number of shares shall be reserved for issuance upon any exercise
of the Bridge Warrants and/or Preferred Stock Warrants. If at any time the number of authorized
but unissued shares of Convertible Preferred Stock and/or of Common Stock is not sufficient to
effect the conversion of all then outstanding convertible Notes and other instruments, and the
exercise of all then outstanding warrants, options and similar instruments, then, in addition to
such other remedies as may be available to Holder, including, without limitation, the exercise of
Holder’s right of first refusal set forth in Section 2.7(f) of the Recapitalization Agreement,
Maker shall take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued
shares of Convertible Preferred Stock and/or Common Stock to such number of shares as will be
sufficient for such purposes. Such corporate action shall
include, without limitation, obtaining all requisite regulatory approvals and any requisite
shareholder approval of any necessary amendment to Maker’s Charter.
14.8 Litigation. Except as set forth in Schedule 14.8 of the Disclosure Schedule,
there is no action, suit, proceeding or investigation pending or, to the knowledge of Maker,
currently threatened against Maker, and/or its directors, officers, advisers, agents, properties,
business, in each case relating to Maker and/or its business, assets, operations or
properties. Maker is not a party or subject to the provisions of any order, writ, injunction,
judgment or decree of any court or government agency or instrumentality. There is no action, suit,
proceeding or investigation by Maker currently pending or which Maker intends to initiate.
