WHEREAS, the Parties entered into that certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of October 20, 2016 pursuant to which the Company issued Vista a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $110,000 in exchange for Vista lending the Company $100,000 (the “Note”);

 

WHEREAS, the amount outstanding pursuant to the Note, as of March 7, 2017, is at least $136,000;

 

WHEREAS, in lieu of the Company paying back the amount owed pursuant to the Note, the Company has agreed to issue and Vista has agreed to accept, shares of the Company’s common stock as full repayment of the Note; and

 

WHEREAS, the Parties desire to fully and finally settle all claims between them with respect to the Note.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and conditions contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency and receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, it is stipulated and agreed, by and among the undersigned, that any claims arising from any amounts owed by the Company to Vista pursuant to the Note (including due to any events of default under the Note) (the “Settled Claims”) are fully and finally settled upon the following terms and conditions:

 

Section 1. Settlement. In exchange for Vista’s settlement and release of the Settled Claims, the Company shall issue 6,831,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Settlement Shares”) to Vista on or before March 27, 2017. Upon issuance of the Settlement Shares, the Note shall be considered fully repaid and Vista shall return the Note to the Company.

 

Section 2. Default. In the event that the Company defaults in issuing the Settlement Shares to Vista on or before March 27, 2017, this Agreement shall be deemed null and void at the sole option of Vista.
