Maker’s obligation under this Note shall accrue simple interest at the rate of Twelve Percent (12.0%) per year from the date hereof until paid in full.

b. Accrued interest hereunder shall be due and payable from Maker to Holder at Maturity Date or until earlier redemption of this Note under the terms hereof at any time after the date hereof, and before the Maturity Date of this Note or may be paid or redeemed in whole, or in part on one or more occasions, at the sole option of the Maker.
c. At any time after the date hereof and before the Maturity Date of this Note or may be paid or redeemed in whole, or in part on one or more occasions, at the sole option of the Maker.
d. All payments of principal and interest hereunder may, at the sole option of the Maker, be paid pro-rata or redeemed for common stock at a conversion price of $.74536 in validly issued shares of common stock in the Maker, par value $0.001, issued to Holder. For example, Holder could redeem 670,821 shares at a conversion price of $.74536 per share for the principal balance only at a time deemed permissible by Rule 144. Any and all accrued interest would be payable by cash or at an equivalent conversion rate into the shares of the Company’s common stock.
e. All payments shall be applied first to interest, then principal and shall be credited to the Maker's account on the date that such payment is physically received by the Holder.
3. Optional Conversion; Adjustments to Conversion Price.
a. At any time after six months from the date hereof, the Holder shall have the right, at its option, to convert all or any portion of the principal and accrued interest due and owing hereunder into shares of fully paid and nonassessable Common Stock of the Maker at the price of $0.74536 per share, (the "Conversion Price"), subject to adjustment as explained herein.
b. If the Maker shall (i) declare a dividend or other distribution payable in securities, (ii) split its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number, (iii) combine its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number, or (iv) increase or decrease the number of shares of its capital stock in a reclassification of the Common Stock including any such reclassification in connection with a merger, consolidation or other business combination in which the Maker is the continuing entity (any such corporate event, an “Event”), then in each instance the Conversion Price shall be adjusted such that the number of shares issued upon conversion of the sum due and owing hereunder will equal the number of shares of Common Stock that would otherwise be issued but for such event.
i. Immediately upon any adjustment of the Conversion Price, the Maker shall give written notice thereof to Holder, setting forth in reasonable detail and certifying the calculation of such adjustment and the facts upon which such adjustment is based.
ii. The Maker shall give written notice to the Holder at least five (5) days prior to the date on which the Maker closes its books or takes a record (a) with respect to any dividend or distribution upon Common Stock, or (b) with respect to any dissolution or liquidation or any merger, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization or similar event.

5. Registration Rights.
a. The Maker agrees that if, at any time, and from time to time, the Board of Directors of the Maker shall authorize the filing of a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 on Form S-1, S-3, or S-4 in connection with the proposed offer of any of its securities by it or any of its stockholders, the Maker shall: (A) promptly notify each Holder that such registration statement will be filed and that the Common Stock issuable to Holder upon conversion of this Note at the Conversion Price then in effect (the “Registrable Securities”) will be included in such registration statement at such Holder’s request; (B) cause such registration statement to cover all of such Registrable Securities for which such Holder requests inclusion; (C) use best efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective as soon as practicable; (D) use best efforts to cause such registration statement to remain effective until the earliest to occur of (i) such date as the sellers of Registrable Securities have completed the distribution described in the registration statement and (ii) such time that all of such Registrable Securities are no longer, by reason of Rule 144 under the Securities Act, required to be registered for the sale thereof by such Holders; and (E) take all other reasonable action necessary under any federal or state law or regulation of any governmental authority to permit all such Registrable Securities to be sold or otherwise disposed of, and will maintain such compliance with each such federal and state law and regulation of any governmental authority for the period necessary for such Holder to promptly effect the proposed sale or other disposition.
b. The right of any Holder to request inclusion in any registration pursuant to this Agreement shall terminate if all Registrable Securities may immediately be sold under Rule 144.
c. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 5, the Maker may at any time, abandon or delay any registration commenced by the Maker. In the event of such an abandonment by the Maker, the Maker shall not be required to continue registration of shares requested by the Holder for inclusion.
d. In connection with any offering involving an underwriting of shares of the Maker’s capital stock, the Maker shall not be required to include any of the Registrable Securities in such underwriting unless they accept the terms of the underwriting as agreed upon between the Maker and the underwriters selected by it, and then only in such quantity as the underwriters determine in their sole discretion will not jeopardize the success of the offering by the Maker. If the total amount of securities, including Registrable Securities, requested by stockholders to be included in such offering exceeds the amount of securities sold other than by the Maker that the underwriters determine in their sole discretion is compatible with the success of the offering, then the Maker shall be required to include in the offering only that number of such securities, including Registrable Securities, which the underwriters determine in their sole discretion will not jeopardize the success of the offering (the securities so included to be apportioned pro rata among the selling stockholders according to the total amount of securities entitled to be included therein owned by each selling stockholder or in such other proportions as shall mutually be agreed to by such selling stockholders).
