INVESTMENT BANKING AGREEMENT
M Power Entertainment ("MPWE") hereby retains the services of Northern Hills,
Inc. dba Santa Fe Capital Group ("SANTA FE") on a non-exclusive basis to raise
up to approximately $12,500,000 in the form of two fundings: (a) up to a
$2,500,000 mezzanine capital funding round to be used for working capital
purposes and (b) a $10,000,000 convertible debenture or private equity line or
standby equity distribution agreement ("SEDA"); both fundings to be known
hereafter as the "Equity Fundings".
MPWE is seeking the experience of SANTA FE and MPWE does not hold SANTA FE
responsible in any manner for raising $12,500,000 Equity Fundings.
SANTA FE has experience in raising angel capital and quite a few of its angel
group (of approximately 50 former entrepreneurs) come from the media and
entertainment industries, and are still active as the Internet and the mobile
marketplace become more content and advertising driven. SANTA FE believes
that some of its angel investors may want to become advisors to MPWE and use
their rolodexes to open doors for MPWE into their world of entertainment and
The convertible debenture funding would take the form of a five to seven year
term loan bearing interest at an estimated prime plus 2% fully convertible
into MPWE's stock at any time or from time to time with a small warrant
kicker, estimated at no more than twenty (20%) percent coverage. The SEDA
would take the form of a two year equity line with draw-down rights every two
weeks of $250,000 per draw-down.
SANTA FE shall receive its fees from MPWE only on investors that SANTA FE
introduces to MPWE and who actually invest. MPWE has the right to refuse an
investment from any investor brought to MPWE by SANTA FE.

others that it is MPWE's agent, and any material that SANTA FE prepares for

common stock and warrants purchased by investors in the Equity Fundings. Fee
payments shall be made by over-nighted checks or wire transfer within two (2)
days of MPWE receiving the investors' or lenders' checks or wire transfers.

terms and conditions that the investors hold theirs
