THIS NOTE HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”). IT MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF A CURRENT AND EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT WITH RESPECT TO SUCH NOTE, OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT.

SECURED CONVERTIBLE PROMISSORY NOTE

$130,000.00 Frisco, Texas
  September 5, 2013

 

WEST TEXAS RESOURCES, INC., a Nevada corporation (“Maker”), hereby promises to pay to the order of Gary Bryant (“Lender”), or permitted assigns, in lawful money of the United States of America, the lesser of ONE HUNDRED THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS ($130,000.00) or the principal balance outstanding under this Secured Convertible Promissory Note (“Note”), together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon, at the rate or rates set forth below, on December 6, 2013 (the “Maturity Date”).

1.            This Note is issued pursuant to the terms of that certain Note Purchase Agreement dated as of even date herewith by and between Maker and Lender (the “Purchase Agreement”). The Purchase Agreement includes certain rights and obligations of the Maker and Lender with respect to this Note, all of which are incorporated herein by this reference.

2.            The unpaid principal amount of this Note shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to six percent (6%) calculated on the basis of a 365 day year and the actual number of days elapsed. Interest on the unpaid principal amount shall be paid on the Maturity Date.

3.            This Promissory Note may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time, without premium or penalty on thirty (30) days prior written notice to Lender.

4.            Maker hereby pledges to Lender, and hereby grants to Lender, a security interest in Maker’s working interest in the offshore oil and gas field known as Port Hudson Field as collateral security for the prompt and complete payment and performance when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of Maker’s obligations under this Note and the Prior Note (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) (“Obligations”) including, without limitation all proceeds and products of any and all of the foregoing (collectively, the “Collateral”). In furtherance of the foregoing, Maker agrees to deliver to Lender duly completed financing statements and such other documents and instruments as Lender may reasonably request from time to time to perfect the liens and security interests in the Collateral granted hereunder. Upon the payment or conversion in full of the Obligations, the security interests shall automatically terminate and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to Maker. In furtherance of the foregoing, Lender agrees to deliver to Maker, at Maker’s expense, such instruments as Maker may reasonably request to evidence the termination or release of the security interests, as the case may be.

1
 

5.            Conversion. All principal and interest will be convertible at the option of the Lender, at any time, in accordance with this Section 5.

(a)            Conversion Ratio. Subject to the provisions of Section 6, upon conversion the Lender will be entitled to receive one share (“Conversion Share”) of the $0.001 par value common stock of Maker (“Common Stock”) for each $0.50 of principal and interest converted. Thus, the initial conversion price (“Conversion Price”) is $0.50 per Conversion Share.

(b)            Procedure for Conversion. In order to convert pursuant to this Section 5, the Lender must deliver to Maker a duly completed and executed Notice of Election to Convert in the form attached hereto as Schedule 1 (an “Election Notice”). Within five (5) days after Maker’s receipt of the Election Notice, Maker will issue and deliver to the Lender a certificate for the number of Conversion Shares issuable upon such conversion. Upon conversion of all principal and interest pursuant to this Section 5, and subject to the Lender’s receipt of the Conversion Shares, this Note will be deemed canceled.

(c)            Effective Date of Conversion. Such conversion will be deemed to have been effected on the date the Conversion Shares are actually issued (“Effective Date of Conversion”). The person(s) in whose name(s) any certificate for shares of Common Stock will be issuable upon such conversion will be deemed to have become the holder(s) of record of the shares represented thereby as of the Effective Date of Conversion.

(d)            Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. Maker shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of this Note, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of the outstanding principal and accrued interest under this Note; and if at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of the outstanding principal and accrued interest under this Note, Maker will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purpose.

(e)            Payment of Taxes. Maker will pay all transfer taxes or charges that may be imposed with respect to the issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock upon conversion of the outstanding principal and accrued interest under this Note. Notwithstanding the language in this section, Maker shall not be responsible for any state or federal income tax liability associated with such transfers other than those specifically contemplated by this Note.

6.            Adjustments to Conversion Price and Number of Conversion Shares. The Conversion Price and the number of Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion will be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:

(a)            If the shares of Common Stock at any time outstanding are subdivided into a greater number or combined into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock or if shares of Common Stock are issued as a stock dividend, the Conversion Price and the number of Conversion Shares will be decreased or increased, as the case may be, to an amount that will bear the same relation to the Conversion Price and the number of Conversion Shares, respectively, in effect immediately prior to such subdivision or combination or stock dividend as the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such subdivision or combination or stock dividend will bear to the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such subdivision or combination or stock dividend.

2
 

(b)            In the event of any capital reorganization, or of any reclassification of the Common Stock or in the event of the consolidation or merger of Maker with any other corporation (including a merger in which Maker is not the continuing corporation or a reorganization whereby the shareholders of Maker exchange their common shares for a controlling interest of the “acquiring” company) or of the sale of the properties and assets of Maker as, or substantially as, an entirety to any other corporation, this Note will after such capital reorganization, reclassification of Common Stock, consolidation, merger or sale be convertible, upon the terms and conditions specified herein, into the number of shares of stock and warrants or other securities or property of Maker, or of the corporation resulting from such consolidation or surviving such merger or reorganization or to which such sale will be made, as the case may be, to which the Conversion Shares issuable (at the time of such capital reorganization, reclassification of Common Stock, consolidation, merger, reorganization or sale) upon exercise of this Note would have been entitled upon such capital reorganization, reclassification of Common Stock, consolidation, merger, reorganization or sale if such exercise had taken place; and in any such case, if necessary, the provisions set forth in this Section 6 with respect to the rights and interests thereafter of the Lender will be appropriately adjusted so as to be applicable, as nearly as may reasonably be, to any shares of stock or warrants or other securities or property thereafter deliverable on the conversion of this Note. The subdivision or combination of shares of Common Stock at any time outstanding into a greater or lesser number of shares of Common Stock will not be deemed to be a reclassification of the Common Stock of Maker for the purposes of this Section 6(b).

(c)            Whenever there is an adjustment in the Conversion Price as provided herein, Maker will promptly mail to the Lender, by first-class mail, postage prepaid, with a notice stating that such adjustment has been effected and stating the Conversion Price then in effect and the number of Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion as a result of such adjustment.

7.            Maker hereby waives presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, protest, notice of protest and all other demands, protests and notices in connection with the execution, delivery, performance, collection and enforcement of this Note.

8.            An event of default under this Note shall occur upon Lender’s written notice to Maker that principal and interest due under this Note has not been paid as and when due.

9.            This Note is being delivered in, is intended to be performed in, shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with, and be governed by the internal laws of, the State of Texas, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.

3
 

10.           This Note may only be amended, modified or terminated by an agreement in writing signed by the party to be charged. This Note shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of Maker and inure to the benefit of Lender and his permitted and assigns. This Note shall not be transferred without the express written consent of Lender, provided that if Lender consents to any such transfer or if notwithstanding the foregoing such a transfer occurs, then the provisions of this Note shall be binding upon any successor to Maker and shall inure to the benefit of and be extended to any holder thereof.

Re:     Amendment to Secured Convertible Promissory Note

 

Dear Mr. Bryant:

We are writing with respect to that certain Secured Convertible Promissory Note dated September 5, 2013 in the original principal amount of $130,000 made by West Texas Resources, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Maker”), in favor of Gary E. Bryant (“Lender”). All capitalized terms used in this Letter Agreement which are not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meaning given to them in the Note.

 

Maker and Lender have discussed the merits of extending the present maturity date of the Note by 13 months. To that end, this will confirm our agreement to amend the Note by providing that all references to the term “Maturity Date”, as set forth in the Note, shall mean January 6, 2015. This will also confirm that you are waiving any breach under the Note by Maker for not having made the required payments under the Note as of or following the original due date of December 6, 2013.

 

If this Letter Agreement appropriately reflects our agreement, please sign in the location provided below at which time this Letter Agreement will formally amend the Note as provided herein. Except as provided herein, all other terms and conditions of the Note shall remain in effect and unmodified by this Letter Agreement.

 

Very truly yours,

 

 

/s/ Stephen E. Jones

Stephen E. Jones,

Chief Executive Officer

 

ACKNOWLEDGED AND AGREED:
