The 2022 Convertible Note will bear interest at 1% per annum payable at maturity and matures ten years from issuance. The investor may elect to convert all or part of the 2022 Convertible Note, plus accrued interest, at any time into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price equal to 95% of the average of the highest three trading prices for the common stock during the 20-trading day period ending one trading day prior to the conversion date but in no event will the conversion price be lower than $0.75 per share.
