If Company exercises the Call, then the Company shall make the Call Payment to the Holder within five business days of the date that the Company exercises the Call.

The “Alternate Conversion Price” means 50% multiplied by the Market Price. “Market Price” means the lowest trading price for the common stock during the twenty (20) trading day period ending on the latest complete trading day prior to the conversion date. Should Holder exercise its conversion rights upon terms provided within the Note, the interests of our shareholders may be materially diluted and a change in control could occur.
