The Amended First Note is secured pursuant to a mortgage on Eos’ oil and gas leases constituting the Works Property in Edwards County, Illinois. The Amended First Note does not accrue any interest, and all previously accrued but unpaid interest from the First Note has been moved to principal of the Second Note. The maturity date of the Amended First Note is June 30, 2015. Subject to certain restrictions set forth in the Amended First Note, LowCal at its option may convert the Amended First Note in whole or in part into shares of restricted common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $2.50 per share. Upon repayment in full of the Amended First Note, the Company has agreed to pay to LowCal an exit fee of 50,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock.

LowCal and the Company have agreed that the principal amount of the Second Note reflects and equals: (i) the cash portion of the “Exit Fee” originally set forth in the First Note; (ii) all consulting fees and expenses which otherwise would have been payable to LowCal pursuant to the Oversight Agreement; (iii) all accrued and unpaid interest on the First Note as of the date of the Amendment; (iv) certain cash loans from LowCal to the Company from October 10, 2014 through December 17, 2014 which total in the aggregate $750,000; and (iv) the value of the release by LowCal of certain rights and claims under the First Note and LowCal Agreements and security and sources of funding for the repayment of the First Note.

The maturity date of the Second Note is June 30, 2015, and the Second Note accrues interest an an annual rate of 10%. The Company has further agreed that, upon the earlier to occur of: (i) the Company closing a transaction to acquire the capital stock or substantially all of the assets of one of two target companies; or (ii) the Company closing an offering of capital stock or other equity financing for a minimum of $20,000,000, it shall repay the Second Note in full. LowCal has agreed that, upon repayment in full of the Second Note, it will release its mortgage on Eos’ oil and gas leases which presently secures the Amended First Note.
