In consideration for the issuance of the Note and the Warrant, Kronstadt paid the Company cash in the aggregate amount of $500,000.00.

During the fourth and fifth years that the Note is outstanding, interest that accrues under the Note shall be payable in cash.
The Warrant is exercisable at an exercise price of $0.60 per share of Common Stock, subject to adjustment as provided for by the terms thereof, for a period commencing on the date of issuance and ending on the earlier to occur of the date that is (i) three years after the date upon which the weighted average price of a share of Common Stock for the 90 consecutive trading days prior to such date is at least $2.00 per share, and (ii) five years after the date on which the Note has been repaid in full.
