The holder of the Note will have the option of converting the outstanding principal of the Note, in whole and not in part, into shares of the Corporation at a price of $0.16 per share at any time until maturity of the Note. Any accrued interest on the principal of the Note, at the time of conversion, is payable in cash, or at the holder's option, in shares of the Corporation to be issued at the Market Price of the securities on settlement date.
After the first anniversary of the Note, and thereafter at any time until maturity of the Note, the Corporation may elect to redeem the outstanding principal of the Note, in whole or in part, into shares of the Corporation at the Market Price of the securities on settlement date, if, and only if, the Market Price is at least $0.16 per share, at any time until maturity of the Note.
