Any period of suspension of the Valuation Period shall be established by means of a written notice from IBC to the Company.


2.          Fairness Hearing. Upon the execution hereof, Company and IBC agree, pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Act”), to immediately submit the terms and conditions of this Agreement to the Court for a hearing on the fairness of such terms and conditions, and the issuance exempt from registration of the Settlement Shares. This Agreement shall become binding upon the parties only upon entry of an order by the Court substantially in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit A (the “Order”).


3.          Settlement Shares. Following entry of an Order by the Court in accordance with Paragraph 2 herein and the delivery by IBC and Company of the Stipulation of Dismissal (as defined below), Company shall issue and deliver to IBC shares of its Common Stock (the “Settlement Shares”) as follows:




a.           In settlement of the Claims, Company shall initially issue and deliver to IBC, in one or more tranches as necessary, shares of Common Stock (the “Initial Issuance”), subject to adjustment and ownership limitations as set forth below, sufficient to satisfy the compromised amount at a thirty-five percent (35%) discount to market less 0.002 per share (the total amount of the claims multiplied by 65% less 0.002 per share) based on the market price during the valuation period as defined herein through the issuance of freely trading securities issued pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act (the “settlement shares”). The company shall also issue IBC on the issuance date, 650,000 share of Common Stock as a settlement fee.


b.           No later than the first business day following the date that the Court enters the Order, time being of the essence, Company shall: (i) cause its legal counsel to issue an opinion to Company’s transfer agent, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to IBC and such transfer agent, that the shares of Common Stock to be issued as the Initial Issuance and Additional Issuance (as defined below) are legally issued, fully paid and non-assessable, are exempt from registration under the Securities Act, may be issued without restrictive legend, and may be resold by IBC without restriction; (ii) transmit via email, facsimile and overnight delivery an irrevocable and unconditional instruction to Company’s stock transfer agent; and (iii) issue the Initial Issuance, as Direct Registration Systems (DRS) shares to IBC’s account with The Depository Trust Company (DTC) or through the Fast Automated Securities Transfer (FAST) Program of DTC’s Deposit/Withdrawal Agent Commission (DWAC) system, without any legends or restriction on transfer. The date upon which the first tranche of the Initial Issuance shares has been received into IBC’s account and are available for sale by IBC shall be referred to as the “Issuance Date”.




c.           During the Valuation Period, the Company shall deliver to IBC, through the Initial Issuance and any required Additional Issuance, that number of shares (the “Final Amount”) with an aggregate value equal to (A) (i) the sum of the Claim Amount, divided by (B) the Purchase Price. The parties acknowledge that the number of Settlement Shares to be issued pursuant to this Agreement is indeterminable as of the date of its execution, and could well exceed the current existing number of shares outstanding as of the date of its execution.


d.           If at any time during the Valuation Period the Bid Price is below 90% of the Bid Price on the day before the Issuance Date, Company will immediately cause to be issued and delivered to IBC via DTC or DWAC, such additional shares as may be required to effect the purposes of this Settlement Agreement (each, an “Additional Issuance”), subject to the limitation in the paragraph below. At the end of the Valuation Period, if the sum of the Initial Issuance and any Additional Issuance is greater than the Final Amount, IBC shall promptly deliver any remaining shares to Company or its transfer agent for cancellation.


e.           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, it is the intention of the parties that the Settlement Shares beneficially owned by IBC at any given time shall not exceed the number of such shares that, when aggregated with all other shares of Company then beneficially owned by IBC, or deemed beneficially owned by IBC, would result in IBC owning more than 9.99% of all of such Common Stock as would be outstanding on such date, as determined in accordance with Section 16 of the Exchange Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder. In compliance therewith, the Company agrees to deliver the Initial Issuance and any Additional Issuances in one or more traunches.




4.          Necessary Action. At all times after the execution of this Agreement and entry of the Order by the Court, each party hereto agrees to take or cause to be taken all such necessary action including, without limitation, the execution and delivery of such further instruments and documents, as may be reasonably requested by any party for such purposes or otherwise necessary to effect and complete the transactions contemplated hereby.


5.          Releases. Upon receipt of all of the Settlement Shares for and in consideration of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and except for the obligations, representations and covenants arising or made hereunder or a breach hereof, the parties hereby release, acquit and forever discharge the other and each, every and all of their current and past officers, directors, shareholders, affiliated corporations, subsidiaries, agents, employees, representatives, attorneys, predecessors, successors and assigns (the “Released Parties”), of and from any and all claims, damages, cause of action, suits and costs, of whatever nature, character or description, whether known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, which the parties may now have or may hereafter have or claim to have against each other with respect to the Claims. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to negate or affect IBC’s right and title to any securities heretofore issued to it by Company or any subsidiary of Company.


6.          Representations. Company hereby represents, warrants and covenants to IBC as follows:


a.           There are one billion five hundred million (1,500,000,000) shares of Common Stock of the Company authorized, of which approximately eighty two million two hundred twenty three thousand (82,223,000) Shares of Common Stock are issued and outstanding, and approximately one billion, four hundred seventeen million, seven hundred seventy seven thousand (1,417,777,000) Shares of Common Stock are available for issuance pursuant hereto;




b.           The shares of Common Stock to be issued pursuant to the Order are duly authorized, and when issued will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and preemptive and similar rights to subscribe for or purchase securities;


c.           The shares will be exempt from registration under the Securities Act and issuable without any restrictive legend;


d.           The Company has reserved from its duly authorized capital stock a number of shares of Common Stock at least equal to the number of shares that could be issued pursuant to the terms of the Order;


e.           If at any time it appears reasonably likely that there may be insufficient authorized shares to fully comply with the Order, Company shall promptly increase its authorized shares to ensure its ability to timely comply with the Order;


f.            The execution of this Agreement and performance of the Order by Company and IBC will not (1) conflict with, violate or cause a breach or default under any agreements between Company and any creditor (or any affiliate thereof) related to the account receivables comprising the Claims, or (2) require any waiver, consent, or other action of the Company or any creditor, or their respective affiliates, that has not already been obtained;


g.           Without limitation, the Company hereby waives any provision in any agreement related to the account receivables comprising the Claims requiring payments to be applied in a certain order, manner, or fashion, or providing for exclusive jurisdiction in any court other than this Court;


h.           The Company has all necessary power and authority to execute, deliver and perform all of its obligations under this Agreement;




i.            The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Company has been duly authorized by all requisite action on the part of Company (including a majority of its independent directors), and this Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Company;


j.            Company did not enter into the transaction giving rise to the Claims in contemplation of any sale or distribution of Company’s common stock or other securities;


k.          There has been no modification, compromise, forbearance, or waiver entered into or given with respect to the Claims. There is no action based on the Claims that is currently pending in any court or other legal venue, and no judgments based upon the Claims have been previously entered in any legal proceeding;

p.           Seller will not, directly or indirectly, receive any consideration from or be compensated in any manner by, the Company, or any affiliate of the Company, in exchange for or in consideration of selling the Claims.


q.           Company acknowledges that IBC or its affiliates may from time to time, hold outstanding securities of the Company which may be convertible in shares of the Company’s common stock at a floating conversion rate tied to the current market price for the stock. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to this Agreement may increase substantially in certain circumstances, including, but not necessarily limited to the circumstance wherein the trading price of the Common Stock declines during the Valuation Period.
