Pursuant to the terms of the SPA, the Company issued and sold to the Buyer two 8% convertible promissory notes in the amount of $75,000 each. The first note for $75,000 (the "8% Note") was paid for by the Buyer on August 6, 2014 in cash, less transaction expenses. The second note ("8% Second Note") was paid for by the issuance of an offsetting $75,000 secured note issued to the Company by the Buyer, (the "8% Buyer Note") which is to be paid in cash to the Company within 8 months.

The 8% Note matures on July 31, 2015. It may be converted in whole or in part into the Company's common stock, at the option of the holder, at any time following 180 days after issuance and until the maturity date. The conversion price shall be 61% of the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the Company's common stock for the fifteen prior trading days, including the day upon which the conversion notice is received by the Company. During the first 180 days that 8% Note is in effect, the Company may redeem the note by paying to the holder an amount equal to 150% of the face amount plus any accrued interest. The 8% Note may not be prepaid after the 180th day. Interest on any unpaid principal balance of 8% Note shall be paid at the rate of 8% per annum. Interest on the 8% Note shall be paid by the Company in shares of its common stock, referred to as Interest Shares. The holder may, at any time, send in a notice of conversion to the Company for Interest Shares based on the formula provided above for principal conversions.

The 8% Second Note matures on July 31, 2015. The holder of the 8% Second Note is entitled, at its option, after the expiration of the requisite Rule 144 holding period and after full cash payment of the 8% Buyer Note, to convert all or any amount of the principal face amount of the 8% Second Note then outstanding into shares of the Company's common stock without restrictive legend of any nature, at a conversion price for each share of the Company's common stock equal to 61% of the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the Company's common stock for the fifteen prior trading days, including the day upon which the conversion notice is received by the Company. The 8% Second Note may not be prepaid, except in certain circumstances described therein. Interest on any unpaid principal balance of the 8% Second Note shall be paid by the Company in Interest Shares. The holder may, at any time, send in a notice of conversion to the Company for Interest Shares based on the formula provided above for principal conversions.

The 8% Note and the 8% Second Note contain certain covenants and restrictions, including, among others, that, for so long as the notes are outstanding the Company will not dispose of certain assets and will maintain its listing on the over-the-counter market. Events of default under the note include, among others, failure to pay principal or interest on the note or comply with certain covenants under the note.

As discussed above, the Buyer issued to the Company, the 8% Buyer Note, also referred to as the Collateralized Secured Promissory Back End Note, in the amount of $75,000, which matures no later than March 31, 2015, unless the Company does not meet the "current information requirements" required under Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in which case the Buyer may declare the 8% Second Note to be in default (as defined in that note) and cross cancel its payment obligations under the 8% Buyer Note against the Company's payment obligations under the 8% Second Note. The 8% Buyer Note shall bear simple interest at the rate of 8%. The Buyer may, at its option, prepay the 8% Buyer Note at any time. The 8% Buyer Note may not be assigned by the Company, except by operation of law.
