(the “Company”), a Minnesota corporation, for value received, hereby promises to pay to the order of [ ] or his, her or its assigns (“Holder”), in lawful money of the United States of America at the address for notices to Holder set forth in the applicable Subscription Agreement (as defined below) (or such other address as Holder shall provide to the Company in writing pursuant thereto), the principal amount of $[ ] (the “Principal Amount”), together with interest as set forth below.

 

This Note is being issued pursuant to that certain Confidential Private Placement Memorandum (the “Memorandum”) dated as of December 21, 2012, which sets forth the terms of the offering and sale (the “Offering”) by the Company of up to a maximum of $300,000 (the “Maximum Offering”) of 8% convertible promissory notes (each a “Note” and collectively the “Notes”). An investment in the Offering shall be further governed by that certain Subscription Agreement, of even date with the Issue Date set forth above, between the Company and Holder (the “Subscription Agreement”).

 

This Note shall become due and payable on the one-year anniversary of the Issue Date set forth above (the “Due Date”). The Company promises to pay interest on the unpaid Principal Amount at a rate of eight percent (8%) per annum or such lesser rate as shall be the maximum rate allowable under applicable law, which interest shall accrue from the Issue Date until the Due Date or such date when the entire Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon is paid in full in accordance with the terms of this Note. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months, shall compound annually and shall be accrued and added to principal on an annual basis.

 

Capitalized terms used, but not otherwise defined, herein shall have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Memorandum.

 

2. Elective Conversion Options.

 

2.1 Elective Conversion Options.

 

(a) Pre-Qualified Financing Conversion Option. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any time prior to the consummation of a Qualified Financing (as hereinafter defined) until the repayment of the entire Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon as permitted hereunder, Holder shall have the option to convert any or all of the unpaid Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon into shares (“Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) at a conversion price per share equal to $0.12, subject to proportionate adjustment as provided in Section 3 hereof (the “Elective Conversion Price”).

 

 
 

 

(b) Qualified Financing Conversion Option. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, upon the consummation of a Qualified Financing (as hereinafter defined) until the repayment of the entire Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon as permitted hereunder, Holder shall have the option to convert any or all of such unpaid Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon into Shares of the Company’s Common Stock, at a conversion price equal to the lesser of 75% of the lowest price per share at which shares of the Company’s Common Stock (or other equity securities of the Company, on an as converted basis) are sold in an equity financing or series of related equity financings by the Company occurring after the Issue Date (not including any sale of Notes in this Offering) which results in aggregate gross cash proceeds (before brokers’ fees, commissions and other transaction-related expenses) to the Company of at least $2,000,000 (a “Qualified Financing”) or the Elective Conversion Price (subject to proportionate adjustment as provided in Section 3 hereof).

 

(c) Holder’s conversion rights provided under this Section 2.1 are referred to herein as the “Conversion Option”. The applicable conversion price shall be paid by Holder by forgiveness of such amount of this Note, included all unpaid Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon, being converted as specified in the applicable Conversion Notice (as hereinafter defined).

 

2.2 Notice of Certain Events; Conversion Procedure for the Conversion Options. So long as this Note remains outstanding and unless expressly waived in writing by Holder in Holder’s sole and absolute discretion, the Company shall give Holder at least ten (10) calendar days advance written notice in accordance with Section 12 herein prior to the consummation of a Qualified Financing or a Fundamental Transaction (as defined below) or the repayment of any unpaid Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon under the Note. Holder shall have ten (10) calendar days following receipt of such notice to elect to convert any or all unpaid Principal Amount and accrued interest thereon into Shares of the Company’s Common Stock in accordance with this Section 2.2. Upon conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 2.2, Holder shall surrender this Note, duly endorsed, at the office of the Company and shall provide written notice (the “Conversion Notice”) to the Company at its principal corporate office of the election to convert the same. The Company, as soon as practicable following receipt of the Conversion Notice, shall issue and deliver to Holder a certificate or certificates for the number of Shares to which Holder is entitled (such certificates bearing such legends as are required by applicable state and federal securities laws).

 

2.3 Mechanics and Effect of Conversion for the Conversion Option. No fractional Shares shall be issued upon any conversion hereunder. All fractional shares shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share. Any conversion pursuant to the Conversion Option, and the issuance of Shares of the Company’s Common Stock pursuant thereto, shall be deemed to have occurred immediately upon the Company’s receipt of the Conversion Notice. From and after such time, Holder shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of the Shares. Upon conversion of this Note in full, with no principal or accrued interest amount thereafter outstanding, the Company shall be released from all its obligations and liabilities hereunder.

 

3. Effect of Certain Events.

 

3.1 Adjustment of Conversion Price upon Subdivision or Combination of Shares. If the Company at any time after the date of issuance of this Note subdivides (by any split, share dividend, recapitalization or otherwise) its Shares into a greater number of shares, the Elective Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision will be proportionately reduced. If the Company at any time after the date of issuance of this Note combines (by combination, reverse stock split, recapitalization or otherwise) its Shares into a smaller number of shares, the Elective Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such combination will be proportionately increased. Any adjustment under this Section 3.1 shall become effective at the close of business on the date the subdivision or combination becomes effective.

3.2 Distribution of Assets. If the Company shall propose to declare or make any dividend or other distribution of assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of Shares, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property or options by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement or other similar transaction) (each a “Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of this Note, then, in each such case, the Company shall provide to Holder hereof notice of such proposed Distribution at least ten (10) days prior to such Distribution, and Holder shall have the opportunity to convert this Note into Shares on the terms and subject to the conditions herein contained, and thereafter participate in such Distribution.

 

3.3 Certain Events. If any event occurs of the type contemplated by the provisions of this Section 3 that is proportionately applied to all outanding shares of Common Stock of the Company, but not expressly provided for by such provisions (including, without limitation, the granting of stock appreciation rights, phantom stock rights or other rights applicable to all outstanding shares of Common Stock , but excluding the Qualified Financing), then the Company’s board of directors shall make an appropriate adjustment or provision so as to protect the rights of the Holder of this Note; provided, except as set forth in Section 3.1, that no such adjustment pursuant to this Section 3 will increase the Elective Conversion Price, as otherwise determined pursuant to this Note.

 

4. Prepayment.

 

4.1 Other than as provided in Section 2, Section 4.2 and Section 5 hereof, unless expressly waived in writing by Holder, in Holder’s sole and absolute discretion, this Note may not be prepaid at any time, in whole or in part, prior to a Qualified Financing. At any time following the consummation of a Qualified Financing and in accordance with the notice requirements set forth in Section 2.2 above, the Company shall have the right to prepay, without premium or penalty, any or all of the unpaid Principal Amount and interest accrued thereon under the Note, to the extent that Holder does not first provide the Company with a Conversion Notice in the applicable timeframe permitted herein.

This Note is being delivered in and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof.
