ARTICLE 2.
Conversion

(a) (i) Conversion at Option of Holder.

(A) The Holder is entitled, at its option, to convert, and sell on the same day, at any time, until payment in full of this Note, all or any part of the principal amount of the Note, plus accrued interest, into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, at the price per share equal to $0.05 (the “Conversion Price”). The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon a conversion hereunder equals the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the outstanding amount of this Note to be converted by (y) the Conversion Price.

(B) The Holder shall effect conversions by delivering to the Company a completed notice in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (a “Conversion Notice”). The date on which a Conversion Notice is delivered is the “Conversion Date.” Unless the Holder is converting the entire principal amount outstanding under this Note, the Holder is not required to physically surrender this Note to the Company in order to effect conversions. Conversions hereunder shall have the effect of lowering the outstanding principal amount of this Note plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon in an amount equal to the applicable conversion. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the principal amount converted and the date of such conversions. In the event of any dispute or discrepancy, the records of the Holder shall be controlling and determinative in the absence of manifest error.
 
 
 
 

 

(ii) Certain Adjustments.

(A)  If the Company, at any time while this Note is outstanding, shall (a) subdivide outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number of shares, (b) combine (including by way of reverse stock split) outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, or (c) issue by reclassification of shares of the Common Stock any shares of capital stock of the Company, then the Conversion Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock (excluding treasury shares, if any) outstanding before such event and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding after such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and shall become effective immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision, combination or re-classification.

(B) Upon a conversion hereunder the Company shall not be required to issue stock certificates representing fractions of shares of the Common Stock, but may if otherwise permitted, make a cash payment in respect of any final fraction of a share based on the Closing Bid Price at such time. If the Company elects not, or is unable, to make such a cash payment, the Holder shall be entitled to receive, in lieu of the final fraction of a share, one whole share of Common Stock.

(C) The issuance of certificates for shares of the Common Stock on conversion of this Note shall be made without charge to the Holder thereof for any documentary stamp or similar taxes that may be payable in respect of the issue or delivery of such certificate, provided that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any such certificate upon conversion in a name other than that of the Holder of such Note so converted and the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver such certificates unless or until the person or persons requesting the issuance thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid.

ARTICLE 3.
Miscellaneous

(a)      Prepayments and Partial Payments.  The Company may prepay this Note in whole or in part at anytime; provided, that any partial payment of principal shall be accompanied by payment of accrued interest to the date of prepayment.  Any payment made to the holders of the Notes which is not a full payment of all principal and interest on all of the Notes shall be made pro rata to the holders of the Notes based on the respective principal amounts of the Notes.

(b)      Transferability.  This Note shall not be transferred except in a transaction exempt from registration pursuant to the Securities Act and applicable state securities law.  The Company shall treat as the owner of this Note the person shown as the owner on its books and records.  The term “Holder” shall include the initial holder named on the first page of this Note and any subsequent holder of this Note.

(c)  Subsequent Financing.  This Note is intended  to provide necessary bridge financing to the Company prior to an anticipated financing in the near future of an amount up to $750,000 which is expected to be structured as convertible preferred stock (the "Preferred Financing").  Upon the closing of the Preferred Financing, this Note shall automatically convert into the Preferred Financing.
 
 
 
 

 

(c)      WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY.  IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING TO ENFORCE PAYMENT OF THIS NOTE, THE COMPANY WAIVES TRIAL BY JURY.

(d)      Usury Saving Provision.  All payment obligations arising under this Note are subject to the express condition that at no time shall the Company be obligated or required to pay interest at a rate which could subject the holder of this Note to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the maximum rate which the Company is permitted by law to contract or agree to pay.  If by the terms of this Note, the Company is at any time required or obligated to pay interest at a rate in excess of such maximum rate, the applicable rate of interest shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to such maximum rate, and interest thus payable shall be computed at such maximum rate, and the portion of all prior interest payments in excess of such maximum rate shall be applied and shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal.

(e)      Notice to Company.  Notice to the Company shall be given to the Company at its principal executive offices, presently located at 1750 Elm Street, Suite 103, Manchester, NH 03104, telecopier (___)    -    , attention of CEO, or to such other address or person as the Company may, from time to time, advise the holder of this Note, or to the holder of this Note at the address set forth on the Company’s records.  Notice shall be given by hand delivery, certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, overnight courier service which provides evidence of delivery, or by telecopier if confirmation of receipt is given or of confirmation of transmission is sent as herein provided.

(f)      Governing Law.  This Note shall be governed by the laws of the State of New Hampshire applicable to agreements executed and to be performed wholly within such State.  The Company hereby (i) consents to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court sitting in Manchester, New Hampshire in any action relating to or arising out of this Note, (ii) agrees that any process in any such action may be served upon it, in addition to any other method of service permitted by law, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, or by an overnight courier service which obtains evidence of delivery, with the same full force and effect as if personally served upon him and (iii) waives any claim that the jurisdiction of any such tribunal is not a convenient forum for any such action and any defense of lack of in personam jurisdiction with respect thereto.

(g)      Expenses.  In the event that the Holder commences a legal proceeding in order to enforce its rights under this Note, the Company shall pay all reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred by the Holder with respect thereto, if the Holder is successful in enforcing such action.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has executed this Note as of the date and year first aforesaid.
