The Holder must provide notice to the Company of its election of any Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date and the applicable portion of the Optional Redemption Payment it is electing to receive on each such Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date no later than 4:30 p.m. New York Time on such Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date. The Company shall not pay any portion of the Optional Redemption Payment in shares of Common Stock unless the Holder has designated an Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date for such portion. Any portion of the Optional Redemption Payment not paid in shares of Common Stock because the Holder did not allocate such Optional Redemption Payment (or applicable portion thereof) to a Scheduled Trading Day during the applicable Optional Redemption Stock Payment Period or because the Holder elected to defer the receipt of such Optional Redemption Payment (or portion thereof) during the applicable Optional Redemption Stock Payment Period will be automatically deferred to the next Optional Redemption Date or such future Optional Redemption Date as was elected by the Holder, as applicable. Any such shares of Common Stock will be delivered by the Company to the Holder on or before the second (2nd) Business Day following the applicable Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date.
(D)    Delay of Payment when Payment Date is Not a Business Day. If the due date for a payment on this Note as provided in this Note is not a Business Day, then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Note, such payment may be made on the immediately following Business Day and no interest will accrue on such payment as a result of the related delay.

Section 6.    Repurchase of Note upon a Fundamental Change.
(A)    Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change. Subject to the other terms of this Section 6, if a Fundamental Change occurs, then (i) the Holder will have the right to require the Company to repurchase this Note (or any portion of this Note in an Authorized Denomination) and (ii) the Company will have the right to repurchase this Note, in each case on the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date for such Fundamental Change for a cash purchase price equal to the Fundamental Change Repurchase Price.
(B)    Fundamental Change Repurchase Date. The Fundamental Change Repurchase Date for any Fundamental Change will be a Business Day of the Holder’s choosing that is no more than twenty (20) Business Days after the later of (x) the date the Company delivers to the Holder the related Fundamental Change Notice pursuant to Section 6(C); and (y) the effective date of such Fundamental Change.
(C)    Fundamental Change Notice. No later than the fifth (5th) Business Day before the occurrence of any Fundamental Change, the Company will send to the Holder a written notice (the “Fundamental Change Notice”) thereof, stating the expected date such Fundamental Change will occur and, if applicable, the Company’s election to repurchase this Note pursuant to Section 6(A).
(D)    Fundamental Change Repurchase Price. The Fundamental Change Repurchase Price for this Note (or any portion of this Note to be repurchased) upon a Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change following a Fundamental Change is an amount in cash equal to the Fundamental Change Base Repurchase Price for such Fundamental Change plus accrued and unpaid interest on this Note (or such portion of this Note) to, but excluding, the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date for such Fundamental Change. For the avoidance of doubt, if such Fundamental Change Repurchase Date is on an Interest Payment Date, then the interest otherwise payable on this Note (or such portion of this Note) on such Interest Payment Date will be paid as part of the Fundamental Change Repurchase Price, in satisfaction of the Company’s obligation to pay such interest on such Interest Payment Date.
(E)    Effect of Repurchase. If this Note (or any portion of this Note) is to be repurchased upon a Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change, then, from and after the date the related Fundamental Change Repurchase Price is paid in full, this Note (or such portion) will cease to be outstanding and interest will cease to accrue on this Note (or such portion).
Section 7.    Optional Redemption Payments; Holder Optional Redemption.
(A)    Optional Redemption Payments.
(i)    At the Company’s election, in its sole discretion, the Company may redeem all or a portion of this Note equal to the applicable Optional Redemption Payment on each Optional Redemption Date.

- 18 -
145813685_5


provided, however, that the Company may, in its sole discretion, defer any such Optional Redemption Payment (or any portion thereof) to any subsequent Optional Redemption Date by further written notice at any time prior to the applicable Optional Redemption Date.
(ii)    At the Holder’s election, if on or prior the date of such election the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement has terminated (or otherwise then no longer prohibits the Company from paying the Principal Amount and Stated Interest in cash), on any Business Day on or after May 31, 2024, requested by the Holder, the Company shall prepay all or the portion of the Principal Amount and Stated Interest in the amount specified in such request. The Holder shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent a written notice of any such election under this Section 7(A)(ii) at least ninety (90) days prior to the date of such requested redemption.
(C)    Effect of Optional Redemption Payment. If this Note (or any portion of this Note) is redeemed pursuant to Section 7(A), then, from and after the date the related Optional Redemption Payment or Holder requested redemption, as applicable, is paid in full, this Note (or such portion) will cease to be outstanding and interest will cease to accrue on this Note (or such portion).
Section 8.    Conversion.
(A)    Right to Convert.
(i)    Generally. Subject to the provisions of this Section 8, the Holder may, at its option, convert this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment, as applicable, or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment, into Conversion Consideration.
(ii)    Conversions in Part. Subject to the terms of this Section 8, this Note may be converted in part, but only in an Authorized Denomination. Provisions of this Section 8 applying to the conversion of this Note in whole will equally apply to conversions of any permitted portion of this Note.
(B)    When this Note May Be Converted.
(i)    Generally. The Holder may convert this Note at any time until the Close of Business on the second (2nd) Scheduled Trading Day immediately before the Maturity Date; provided that, with respect to the conversion of any Optional Redemption Payment, the Holder must provide notice of such conversion no later than the Close of Business on the second (2nd) Scheduled Trading Day immediately preceding the date such Optional Redemption Payment is due in accordance with the terms of this Note, and any such conversion will not reduce the amount of future Optional Redemption Payments. For the avoidance of doubt, the Holder’s right to convert this Note shall not be impacted by a prior notice or election to defer any Optional Redemption Payment pursuant to Section 7(A) hereof.
- 19 -
145813685_5


(ii)    Limitations and Closed Periods. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 8, if this Note (or any portion of this Note) is to be repurchased upon a Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change pursuant to Section 6, then this Note (or such portion) may not be converted after the Close of Business on the Scheduled Trading Day immediately before the related Fundamental Change Repurchase Date; provided, that this Section 8(B) shall no longer apply to this Note (or such applicable portion) if the applicable Fundamental Change Repurchase Price is not delivered on the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date in accordance with Section 6.
(C)    Conversion Procedures.
(i)    Generally. To convert this Note, the Holder must (1) complete, manually sign and deliver to the Company the conversion notice attached to this Note or a facsimile or portable document format (.pdf) version of such conversion notice (at which time such conversion will become irrevocable); and (2) pay any amounts due pursuant to Section 8(C)(iii). For the avoidance of doubt, the conversion notice may be delivered by e-mail in accordance with Section 14. If the Company fails to deliver, by the related Conversion Settlement Date, any shares of Common Stock forming part of the Conversion Consideration of the conversion of this Note, the Holder, by notice to the Company, may rescind all or any portion of the corresponding conversion notice at any time until such Defaulted Shares are delivered.
(ii)    Holder of Record of Conversion Shares. The person in whose name any shares of Common Stock is issuable upon conversion of this Note will be deemed to become the holder of record of such shares as of the Close of Business on the Conversion Date for such conversion, conferring, as of such time, upon such person, without limitation, all voting and other rights appurtenant to such shares.
(iii)    Taxes and Duties. If the Holder converts a Note, the Company will pay any documentary, stamp or similar issue or transfer tax or duty due on the issue of any shares of Common Stock upon such conversion; provided, however, that if any tax or duty is due because such Holder requested such shares to be issued in a name other than that of such Holder, then such Holder will pay such tax or duty and, until having received a sum sufficient to pay such tax or duty, the Company may refuse to deliver any such shares to be issued in a name other than that of such Holder.
(D)    Settlement upon Conversion.
(i)    Generally. The consideration (the “Conversion Consideration”) due in respect of each $1,000 Principal Amount of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment, to be converted will consist of the following:
(1)    subject to Section 8(D)(ii), a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate in effect on the Conversion Date for such conversion; and
- 20 -
145813685_5


(2)    cash in an amount equal to the aggregate accrued and unpaid interest on this Note to, but excluding, the Conversion Settlement Date for such conversion.
(ii)    Fractional Shares. The total number of shares of Common Stock due in respect of any conversion of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment, will be determined on the basis of the total Principal Amount of this Note to be converted with the same Conversion Date; provided, however, that if such number of shares of Common Stock is not a whole number, then such number will be rounded up to the nearest whole number.
(iii)    Delivery of the Conversion Consideration. The Company will pay or deliver, as applicable, the Conversion Consideration due upon the conversion of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment required to be paid by the Company on the next Optional Redemption Date or Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date, as applicable, or any outstanding deferred Optional Redemption Payment, to the Holder on or before the second (2nd) Business Day (or, if earlier, the standard settlement period for the primary national securities exchange, if any, on which the Common Stock is traded) immediately after the Conversion Date for such conversion (the “Conversion Settlement Date”).
(iv)    Effect of Conversion. If this Note is converted, then, from and after the date the Conversion Consideration therefor is issued or delivered in settlement of such conversion, this Note will cease to be outstanding and interest will cease to accrue on this Note.
(v)    Conversion Settlement Defaults. If (x) the Company fails to deliver, by the related Conversion Settlement Date, any shares of Common Stock (the “Defaulted Shares”) forming part of the Conversion Consideration of the conversion of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment; and (y) the Holder (whether directly or indirectly, including by any broker acting on the Holder’s behalf or acting with respect to such Defaulted Shares) purchases any shares of Common Stock (whether in the open market or otherwise) to cover any such Defaulted Shares (whether to satisfy any settlement obligations with respect thereto of the Holder or otherwise), then, without limiting the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedy available to it (whether hereunder, under applicable law or otherwise), the Holder will have the right, exercisable by notice to the Company, to cause the Company to either:
(1)    pay, on or before the second (2nd) Business Day after the date such notice is delivered, cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the aggregate purchase price (including any brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket costs) incurred to purchase such shares (such aggregate purchase price, the “Covering Price”); or
(2)    promptly deliver, to the Holder, such Defaulted Shares in accordance with this Note, together with cash in an amount equal to the excess, if any, of
- 21 -
145813685_5


the Covering Price over the product of (x) the number of such Defaulted Shares; and (y) the Daily VWAP per share of Common Stock on the Conversion Date relating to such conversion.
To exercise such right, the Holder must deliver notice of such exercise to the Company, specifying whether the Holder has elected clause (1) or (2) above to apply. If the Holder has elected clause (1) to apply, then the Company’s obligation to deliver the Defaulted Shares in accordance with this Note will be deemed to have been satisfied and discharged to the extent the Company has paid the Covering Price in accordance with clause (1).

(E)    Reserve and Status of Common Stock Issued upon Conversion.
(i)    Stock Reserve. At all times when this Note is outstanding, the Company will reserve, out of its authorized but unissued and unreserved shares of Common Stock, a number of shares of Common Stock equal to (1) the then-outstanding Principal Amount of this Note plus accrued and unpaid interest on this Note; divided by (2) the then-applicable Conversion Price.
(ii)    Status of Conversion Shares; Listing. Each share of Common Stock delivered upon conversion of this Note will be a newly issued or treasury share and will be duly and validly issued, fully paid, non-assessable, free from preemptive rights and free of any lien or adverse claim (except to the extent of any lien or adverse claim created by the action or inaction of the Holder or the Person to whom such share will be delivered). If the Common Stock is then listed on any securities exchange, or quoted on any inter-dealer quotation system, then the Company will cause each share of Common Stock issued upon conversion of this Note, when delivered upon such conversion, to be admitted for listing on such exchange or quotation on such system.
(iii)    Book-Entry Shares. Any shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of this Note will be issued in the form of book-entries at the facilities of DTC, with or without restrictive legends, as appropriate.
(F)    Stock Dividends, Splits and Combinations. If the Company issues solely shares of Common Stock as a dividend or distribution on all or substantially all shares of the Common Stock, or if the Company effects a stock split or a stock combination of the Common Stock (in each case excluding an issuance solely pursuant to a Common Stock Change Event, as to which Section 8(I) will apply), then the Conversion Rate will be adjusted based on the following formula:
image_01.jpg

where:
- 22 -
145813685_5


CR0    =    the Conversion Rate in effect immediately before the Open of Business on the Ex-Dividend Date for such dividend or distribution, or immediately before the Open of Business on the effective date of such stock split or stock combination, as applicable;

CR1    =    the Conversion Rate in effect immediately after the Open of Business on such Ex-Dividend Date or the Open of Business on such effective date, as applicable;

OS0    =    the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately before the Open of Business on such Ex-Dividend Date or effective date, as applicable, without giving effect to such dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination; and

OS1    =    the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination.

If any dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination of the type described in this Section 8(F) is declared or announced, but not so paid or made, then the Conversion Rate will be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board of Directors determines not to pay such dividend or distribution or to effect such stock split or stock combination, to the Conversion Rate that would then be in effect had such dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination not been declared or announced.

(G)    Rights Upon Distribution of Assets. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Section 8(F) above, if, on or after the Issue Date and on or prior to the Maturity Date, the Company shall declare or make any dividend or other distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of shares of Common Stock, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property, options, evidence of indebtedness or any other assets by way of a dividend, spin-off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (a “Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of this Note, then, in each such case, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Note (without regard to any limitations or restrictions on exercise of this Note, including without limitation, the Maximum Percentage) immediately before the date on which a record is taken for such Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the participation in such Distribution (provided, however, that to the extent that the Holder’s right to participate in any such Distribution would result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Distribution to such extent (and shall not be entitled to beneficial ownership of such shares of
- 23 -
145813685_5


Common Stock as a result of such Distribution (and beneficial ownership) to such extent) and the portion of such Distribution shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of the Holder until such time or times as its right thereto would not result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, at which time or times the Holder shall be granted such Distribution (and any Distributions declared or made on such initial Distribution or on any subsequent Distribution held similarly in abeyance) to the same extent as if there had been no such limitation).
(H)    Adjustments Not Yet Effective. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Note, if:
(i)    this Note is to be converted;
(ii)    the record date or effective date for any event that requires an adjustment to the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 8(F) has occurred on or before the Conversion Date for such conversion, but an adjustment to the Conversion Rate for such event has not yet become effective as of such Conversion Date;
(iii)    the Conversion Consideration due upon such conversion includes any whole shares of Common Stock; and
(iv)    such shares are not entitled to participate in such event (because they were not held on the related record date or otherwise),
then, solely for purposes of such conversion, the Company will, without duplication, give effect to such adjustment on such Conversion Date. In such case, if the date on which the Company is otherwise required to deliver the consideration due upon such conversion is before the first date on which the amount of such adjustment can be determined, then the Company will delay the settlement of such conversion until the second (2nd) Business Day after such first date.


(I)    [Reserved].
(J)    Calculation of Number of Outstanding Shares of Common Stock. For purposes of this Section 8(J), the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at any time will (i) include shares issuable in respect of scrip certificates issued in lieu of fractions of shares of Common Stock; and (ii) exclude shares of Common Stock held in the Company’s treasury (unless the Company pays any dividend or makes any distribution on shares of Common Stock held in its treasury).
(K)    Calculations. All calculations with respect to the Conversion Rate and adjustments thereto will be made to the nearest 1/10,000th of a share of Common Stock (with 5/100,000ths rounded upward).
(L)    Voluntary Adjustments.
- 24 -
145813685_5


(i)    Generally. To the extent permitted by law and applicable stock exchange rules, the Company, from time to time, may (but is not required to) increase the Conversion Rate by any amount if (i) the Board of Directors determines in good faith that such increase is either (x) in the best interest of the Company; or (y) advisable to avoid or diminish any income tax imposed on holders of Common Stock or rights to purchase Common Stock as a result of any dividend or distribution of shares (or rights to acquire shares) of Common Stock or any similar event; and (ii) such increase is irrevocable. The Company and the Holder agree that any such voluntary adjustment to the Conversion Rate and any conversion of any portion of the Note based upon any such voluntary adjustment shall not constitute material non-public information with respect to the Company.
(ii)    Notice of Voluntary Increases. If the Board of Directors determines to increase the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 8(L)(i), then, no later than the first Business Day following such determination, the Company will send notice to the Holder of such increase, the amount thereof and the period during which such increase will be in effect.
(M)    Adjustments to the Conversion Rate in Connection with an Event of Default. If an Event of Default occurs and the Conversion Date for the conversion of a Note occurs during the related Event of Default Conversion Period, then, subject to Section 8(J), the Conversion Rate applicable to such conversion will be increased by a number of shares equal to the Event of Default Additional Shares.
(N)    Effect of Certain Recapitalizations, Reclassifications, Consolidations, Mergers and Sales.
(i)    Generally. If there occurs:
(1)    recapitalization, reclassification or change of the Common Stock (other than (x) changes solely resulting from a subdivision or combination of the Common Stock, (y) a change only in par value or from par value to no par value or no par value to par value and (z) stock splits and stock combinations that do not involve the issuance of any other series or class of securities);
(2)    consolidation, merger, combination or binding or statutory share exchange involving the Company;
(3)    sale, lease or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, to any Person; or
(4)    other similar event,
and, in each case, as a result of such occurrence, the Common Stock is converted into, or is exchanged for, or represents solely the right to receive, other securities or other property (including cash or any combination of the foregoing) (such an event, a
- 25 -
145813685_5


Common Stock Change Event,” and such other securities or other property, the “Reference Property,” and the amount and kind of Reference Property that a holder of one (1) share of Common Stock would be entitled to receive on account of such Common Stock Change Event (without giving effect to any arrangement not to issue fractional shares of securities or other property), a “Reference Property Unit”), then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Note, at the effective time of such Common Stock Change Event, (x) the Conversion Consideration due upon conversion of any Note will be determined in the same manner as if each reference to any number of shares of Common Stock in this Section 8 (or in any related definitions) were instead a reference to the same number of Reference Property Units; (y) for purposes of Section 8(A), each reference to any number of shares of Common Stock in such Section (or in any related definitions) will instead be deemed to be a reference to the same number of Reference Property Units; and (z) for purposes of the definition of “Fundamental Change,” the term “Common Stock” and “common equity” will be deemed to mean the common equity, if any, forming part of such Reference Property. For these purposes, (I) the Daily VWAP of any Reference Property Unit or portion thereof that consists of a class of common equity securities will be determined by reference to the definition of “Daily VWAP,” substituting, if applicable, the Bloomberg page for such class of securities in such definition; and (II) the Daily VWAP of any Reference Property Unit or portion thereof that does not consist of a class of common equity securities, and the Last Reported Sale Price of any Reference Property Unit or portion thereof that does not consist of a class of securities, will be the fair value of such Reference Property Unit or portion thereof, as applicable, determined in good faith by the Company (or, in the case of cash denominated in U.S. dollars, the face amount thereof).

If the Reference Property consists of more than a single type of consideration to be determined based in part upon any form of stockholder election, then the composition of the Reference Property Unit will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration actually received, per share of Common Stock, by the holders of Common Stock. The Company will notify the Holder of such weighted average as soon as practicable after such determination is made.

At or before the effective date of such Common Stock Change Event, the Company and the resulting, surviving or transferee Person (if not the Company) of such Common Stock Change Event (the “Successor Person”) will execute and deliver such instruments or agreements that (x) provides for subsequent conversions of this Note in the manner set forth in this Section 8(N); (y) provides for subsequent adjustments to the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 8(F) in a manner consistent with this Section 8(N); and (z) contains such other provisions as the Company reasonably determines are appropriate to preserve the economic interests of the Holder and to give effect to the provisions of this Section 8(N). If the Reference Property includes shares of stock or other securities or assets of a Person other than the Successor Person, then such other Person will also execute such instruments or agreements and such instruments or agreements will contain such additional provisions the Company reasonably determines are appropriate to preserve the economic interests of the Holder.

145813685_5



(ii)    Notice of Common Stock Change Events. As soon as practicable after learning the anticipated or actual effective date of any Common Stock Change Event, the Company will provide written notice to the Holder of such Common Stock Change Event, including a brief description of such Common Stock Change Event, its anticipated effective date and a brief description of the anticipated change in the conversion right of this Note.
(iii)    Compliance Covenant. The Company will not become a party to any Common Stock Change Event unless its terms are consistent with this Section 8(N).
(O)    Beneficial Ownership Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Company shall not effect the conversion of any portion of this Note, and the Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Note, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Note and any such conversion shall be null and void and treated as if never made, to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, the Holder together with the other Attribution Parties collectively would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and the other Attribution Parties shall include the number of shares of Common Stock held by the Holder and all other Attribution Parties plus the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (A) conversion of the remaining, unconverted portion of this Note beneficially owned by the Holder or any of the other Attribution Parties and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any convertible notes or convertible preferred stock or warrants) beneficially owned by the Holder or any other Attribution Party subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained in this Section 8(O). For purposes of this Section 8(O), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act. For purposes of this Note, in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock the Holder may acquire upon the conversion of this Note without exceeding the Maximum Percentage, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (x) the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, Current Report on Form 8-K or other public filing with the Commission, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or any other written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent (as defined in the Securities Purchase Agreement) setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding (the “Reported Outstanding Share Number”). If the Company receives a conversion notice from the Holder at a time when the actual number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is less than the Reported Outstanding Share Number, the Company shall (i) promptly notify the Holder in writing of the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding and, to the extent that such conversion notice would otherwise cause the Holder's beneficial ownership, as determined pursuant to this Section 8(O), to exceed the Maximum Percentage, the Holder must notify the Company of a reduced number of conversion shares to be
- 27 -
145813685_5


issued pursuant to such conversion notice. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall within one (1) Trading Day confirm in writing or by electronic mail to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding. In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Note, by the Holder and any other Attribution Party since the date as of which the Reported Outstanding Share Number was reported. In the event that the issuance of shares of Common Stock to the Holder upon conversion of this Note results in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties being deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than the Maximum Percentage of the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock (as determined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), the number of shares so issued by which the Holder's and the other Attribution Parties' aggregate beneficial ownership exceeds the Maximum Percentage (the “Excess Shares”) shall be deemed null and void and shall be cancelled ab initio, and the Holder shall not have the power to vote or to transfer the Excess Shares. Upon delivery of a written notice to the Company, the Holder may from time to time increase or decrease the Maximum Percentage to any other percentage not in excess of 9.99% as specified in such notice; provided that (i) any such increase in the Maximum Percentage will not be effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after such notice is delivered to the Company and (ii) any such increase or decrease will apply only to the Holder and the other Attribution Parties and not to any other holder of Notes that is not an Attribution Party of the Holder. For purposes of clarity, the shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to the terms of this Note in excess of the Maximum Percentage shall not be deemed to be beneficially owned by the Holder for any purpose including for purposes of Section 13(d) or Rule 16a-1(a)(1) of the Exchange Act. No prior inability to convert this Note pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 8(O) to the extent necessary to correct this paragraph or any portion of this paragraph which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended beneficial ownership limitation contained in this Section 8(O) or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitation contained in this paragraph may not be waived and shall apply to a successor holder of this Note.
Section 9.    Affirmative and Negative Covenants.
(A)    Stay, Extension and Usury Laws. To the extent that it may lawfully do so, the Company (A) agrees that it will not at any time insist upon, plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any stay, extension or usury law (wherever or whenever enacted or in force) that may affect the covenants or the performance of this Note; and (B) expressly waives all benefits or advantages of any such law and agrees that it will not, by resort to any such law, hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power granted to the Holder by this Note, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such power as though no such law has been enacted.

(B)    Corporate Existence. Subject to Section 9(A) and except for Permitted Investments and Permitted Transfers, the Company will cause to preserve and keep in full force and effect:
(i)    its corporate existence in accordance with the organizational documents of the Company; and
(ii)    the material rights (charter and statutory), licenses and franchises of the Company and its Subsidiaries;
provided, however, that the Company need not preserve or keep in full force and effect any such license or franchise if the Board of Directors determines in good faith that (x) the preservation thereof is no longer desirable in the conduct of the business of the Company and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole; and (y) the loss thereof is not, individually or in the aggregate, materially adverse to the Holder.
(C)    Ranking. All payments due under this Note shall rank pari passu with all Other Notes and, except for the First Lien Obligations, shall rank senior to all other indebtedness of the Company to the extent of the value of the Collateral and any Subordinated Indebtedness.
(D)    [Reserved].
(E)    [Reserved].

property, options, evidence of indebtedness or any other assets by way of a dividend, spin-off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (a “Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of this Note, then, in each such case, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Note (without regard to any limitations or restrictions on exercise of this Note, including without limitation, the Maximum Percentage) immediately before the date on which a record is taken for such Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the participation in such Distribution (provided, however, that to the extent that the Holder’s right to participate in any such Distribution would result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Distribution to such extent (and shall not be entitled to beneficial ownership of such shares of Common Stock as a result of such Distribution (and beneficial ownership) to such extent) and the portion of such Distribution shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of the Holder until such time or times as its right thereto would not result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, at which time or times the Holder shall be granted such Distribution (and any Distributions declared or made on such initial Distribution or on any subsequent Distribution held similarly in abeyance) to the same extent as if there had been no such limitation).
(H)    Adjustments Not Yet Effective. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Note, if:
(i)    this Note is to be converted;
(ii)    the record date or effective date for any event that requires an adjustment to the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 8(F) has occurred on or before the Conversion Date for such conversion, but an adjustment to the Conversion Rate for such event has not yet become effective as of such Conversion Date;
(iii)    the Conversion Consideration due upon such conversion includes any whole shares of Common Stock; and
(iv)    such shares are not entitled to participate in such event (because they were not held on the related record date or otherwise),
then, solely for purposes of such conversion, the Company will, without duplication, give effect to such adjustment on such Conversion Date. In such case, if the date on which the Company is otherwise required to deliver the consideration due upon such conversion is before the first date on which the amount of such adjustment can be determined, then the Company will delay the settlement of such conversion until the second (2nd) Business Day after such first date.

(J)    Calculation of Number of Outstanding Shares of Common Stock. For purposes of this Section 8(J), the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at any time will (i) include shares issuable in respect of scrip certificates issued in lieu of fractions of shares of Common Stock; and (ii) exclude shares of Common Stock held in the Company’s treasury (unless the Company pays any dividend or makes any distribution on shares of Common Stock held in its treasury).
(K)    Calculations. All calculations with respect to the Conversion Rate and adjustments thereto will be made to the nearest 1/10,000th of a share of Common Stock (with 5/100,000ths rounded upward).
(L)    Voluntary Adjustments.
(i)    Generally. To the extent permitted by law and applicable stock exchange rules, the Company, from time to time, may (but is not required to) increase the Conversion Rate by any amount if (i) the Board of Directors determines in good faith that such increase is either (x) in the best interest of the Company; or (y) advisable to avoid or diminish any income tax imposed on holders of Common Stock or rights to purchase Common Stock as a result of any dividend or distribution of shares (or rights to acquire shares) of Common Stock or any similar event; and (ii) such increase is irrevocable. The Company and the Holder agree that any such voluntary adjustment to the Conversion Rate and any conversion of any portion of the Note based upon any such voluntary adjustment shall not constitute material non-public information with respect to the Company.
(ii)    Notice of Voluntary Increases. If the Board of Directors determines to increase the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 8(L)(i), then, no later than the first Business Day following such determination, the Company will send notice to the Holder of such increase, the amount thereof and the period during which such increase will be in effect.
(M)    Adjustments to the Conversion Rate in Connection with an Event of Default. If an Event of Default occurs and the Conversion Date for the conversion of a Note occurs during the related Event of Default Conversion Period, then, subject to Section 8(J), the Conversion Rate applicable to such conversion will be increased by a number of shares equal to the Event of Default Additional Shares.
(N)    Effect of Certain Recapitalizations, Reclassifications, Consolidations, Mergers and Sales.
(i)    Generally. If there occurs:
(1)    recapitalization, reclassification or change of the Common Stock (other than (x) changes solely resulting from a subdivision or combination of the Common Stock, (y) a change only in par value or from par value to no par value or no par
- 25 -
146118099_3


value to par value and (z) stock splits and stock combinations that do not involve the issuance of any other series or class of securities);
(2)    consolidation, merger, combination or binding or statutory share exchange involving the Company;
(3)    sale, lease or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, to any Person; or
(4)    other similar event,
and, in each case, as a result of such occurrence, the Common Stock is converted into, or is exchanged for, or represents solely the right to receive, other securities or other property (including cash or any combination of the foregoing) (such an event, a “Common Stock Change Event,” and such other securities or other property, the “Reference Property,” and the amount and kind of Reference Property that a holder of one (1) share of Common Stock would be entitled to receive on account of such Common Stock Change Event (without giving effect to any arrangement not to issue fractional shares of securities or other property), a “Reference Property Unit”), then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Note, at the effective time of such Common Stock Change Event, (x) the Conversion Consideration due upon conversion of any Note will be determined in the same manner as if each reference to any number of shares of Common Stock in this Section 8 (or in any related definitions) were instead a reference to the same number of Reference Property Units; (y) for purposes of Section 8(A), each reference to any number of shares of Common Stock in such Section (or in any related definitions) will instead be deemed to be a reference to the same number of Reference Property Units; and (z) for purposes of the definition of “Fundamental Change,” the term “Common Stock” and “common equity” will be deemed to mean the common equity, if any, forming part of such Reference Property. For these purposes, (I) the Daily VWAP of any Reference Property Unit or portion thereof that consists of a class of common equity securities will be determined by reference to the definition of “Daily VWAP,” substituting, if applicable, the Bloomberg page for such class of securities in such definition; and (II) the Daily VWAP of any Reference Property Unit or portion thereof that does not consist of a class of common equity securities, and the Last Reported Sale Price of any Reference Property Unit or portion thereof that does not consist of a class of securities, will be the fair value of such Reference Property Unit or portion thereof, as applicable, determined in good faith by the Company (or, in the case of cash denominated in U.S. dollars, the face amount thereof).

If the Reference Property consists of more than a single type of consideration to be determined based in part upon any form of stockholder election, then the composition of the Reference Property Unit will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration actually received, per share of Common Stock, by the holders of Common Stock. The Company will notify the Holder of such weighted average as soon as practicable after such determination is made.

At or before the effective date of such Common Stock Change Event, the Company and the resulting, surviving or transferee Person (if not the Company) of such Common Stock Change Event (the “Successor Person”) will execute and deliver such instruments or agreements that (x) provides for subsequent conversions of this Note in the manner set forth in this Section 8(N); (y) provides for subsequent adjustments to the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 8(F) in a manner consistent with this Section 8(N); and (z) contains such other provisions as the Company reasonably determines are appropriate to preserve the economic interests of the Holder and to give effect to the provisions of this Section 8(N). If the Reference Property includes shares of stock or other securities or assets of a Person other than the Successor Person, then such other Person will also execute such instruments or agreements and such instruments or agreements will contain such additional provisions the Company reasonably determines are appropriate to preserve the economic interests of the Holder.

(ii)    Notice of Common Stock Change Events. As soon as practicable after learning the anticipated or actual effective date of any Common Stock Change Event, the Company will provide written notice to the Holder of such Common Stock Change Event, including a brief description of such Common Stock Change Event, its anticipated effective date and a brief description of the anticipated change in the conversion right of this Note.
(iii)    Compliance Covenant. The Company will not become a party to any Common Stock Change Event unless its terms are consistent with this Section 8(N).
(O)    Beneficial Ownership Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Company shall not effect the conversion of any portion of this Note, and the Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Note, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Note and any such conversion shall be null and void and treated as if never made, to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, the Holder together with the other Attribution Parties collectively would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and the other Attribution Parties shall include the number of shares of Common Stock held by the Holder and all other Attribution Parties plus the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (A) conversion of the remaining, unconverted portion of this Note beneficially owned by the Holder or any of the other Attribution Parties and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any convertible notes or convertible preferred stock or warrants) beneficially owned by the Holder or any other Attribution Party subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained in this Section 8(O). For purposes of this Section 8(O), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act. For purposes of this Note, in determining
- 27 -
146118099_3


the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock the Holder may acquire upon the conversion of this Note without exceeding the Maximum Percentage, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (x) the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, Current Report on Form 8-K or other public filing with the Commission, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or any other written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent (as defined in the Securities Purchase Agreement) setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding (the “Reported Outstanding Share Number”). If the Company receives a conversion notice from the Holder at a time when the actual number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is less than the Reported Outstanding Share Number, the Company shall (i) promptly notify the Holder in writing of the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding and, to the extent that such conversion notice would otherwise cause the Holder's beneficial ownership, as determined pursuant to this Section 8(O), to exceed the Maximum Percentage, the Holder must notify the Company of a reduced number of conversion shares to be issued pursuant to such conversion notice. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall within one (1) Trading Day confirm in writing or by electronic mail to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding. In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Note, by the Holder and any other Attribution Party since the date as of which the Reported Outstanding Share Number was reported. In the event that the issuance of shares of Common Stock to the Holder upon conversion of this Note results in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties being deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than the Maximum Percentage of the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock (as determined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), the number of shares so issued by which the Holder's and the other Attribution Parties' aggregate beneficial ownership exceeds the Maximum Percentage (the “Excess Shares”) shall be deemed null and void and shall be cancelled ab initio, and the Holder shall not have the power to vote or to transfer the Excess Shares. Upon delivery of a written notice to the Company, the Holder may from time to time increase or decrease the Maximum Percentage to any other percentage not in excess of 9.99% as specified in such notice; provided that (i) any such increase in the Maximum Percentage will not be effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after such notice is delivered to the Company and (ii) any such increase or decrease will apply only to the Holder and the other Attribution Parties and not to any other holder of Notes that is not an Attribution Party of the Holder. For purposes of clarity, the shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to the terms of this Note in excess of the Maximum Percentage shall not be deemed to be beneficially owned by the Holder for any purpose including for purposes of Section 13(d) or Rule 16a-1(a)(1) of the Exchange Act. No prior inability to convert this Note pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 8(O) to the extent necessary to correct this paragraph or any portion of this paragraph which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended beneficial ownership limitation contained in this Section 8(O) or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitation contained in this paragraph may not be waived and shall apply to a successor holder of this Note.

(C)    Exculpatory Provisions.
(i)    The Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Security Documents, and its duties shall be administrative in nature.

The Agent shall not be under any obligation to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Note, any Security Document or any other agreement, instrument or document related hereto or thereto, or to inspect the properties, books or records of the Company or any Affiliate of the Company.
(D)    Reliance by Agent. The Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person.

If the Agent resigns under this Note, the Holder and each Other Holder shall appoint a successor agent.

Upon the acceptance of its appointment as successor agent hereunder, such successor agent shall succeed to all the rights, powers and duties of the retiring Agent and the term the “Administrative Agent” and the “Collateral Agent” shall mean such successor agent, and the retiring Agent’s appointment, powers and duties as the Agent shall be terminated. After the Agent’s resignation hereunder as the Agent, the provisions of this Section 22 shall continue to inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Agent. If no successor agent has accepted appointment as the Agent by the date which is thirty (30) days following a retiring Agent’s notice of resignation, a retiring Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Holder, together with each Other Holder, shall perform all of the duties of the Agent hereunder until such time as the Holder and each Other Holder shall appoint a successor agent as provided for above.
(F)    Non-Reliance on the Agent. The Holder acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any of its Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Note.

taking action under or based upon this Note, any Security Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
(G)    Collateral Matters. The Holder irrevocably authorizes the Collateral Agent to release any Lien granted to or held by the Collateral Agent under any Security Document (i) when all Obligations (as defined in the Security Agreement) have been paid in full; (ii) constituting property sold or to be sold or disposed of as part of or in connection with any sale or other disposition permitted under this Note and each other agreement, instrument or document related hereto (it being agreed and understood that the Collateral Agent may conclusively rely without further inquiry on a certificate of an officer of the Company as to the sale or other disposition of property being made in compliance with this Note and each other agreement, instrument or document related hereto); or (iii) if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Holder and each Other Holder.

(I)    Marshaling; Payments Set Aside. Neither the Agent nor the Holder shall be under any obligation to marshal any assets in favor of the Company or any other Person or against or in payment of any or all of the Obligations. To the extent that the Company makes a payment or payments to the Agent, or the Collateral Agent enforces its Liens or exercises its rights of set-off, and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or set-off or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Agent in its discretion) to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party in connection with any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding, or otherwise, then (i) to the extent of such recovery, the obligation hereunder or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such enforcement or set-off had not occurred and (ii) the Holder agrees to pay to the Agent upon demand its share of the total amount so recovered from or repaid by the Agent to the extent paid to the Holder.

Subject to the other terms of this Section 6, if a Fundamental Change occurs, then (i) the Holder will have the right to require the Company to repurchase this Note (or any portion of this Note in an Authorized Denomination) and (ii) the Company will have the right to repurchase this Note, in each case on the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date for such Fundamental Change for a cash purchase price equal to the Fundamental Change Repurchase Price.
(B)    Fundamental Change Repurchase Date. The Fundamental Change Repurchase Date for any Fundamental Change will be a Business Day of the Holder’s choosing that is no more than twenty (20) Business Days after the later of (x) the date the Company delivers to the Holder the related Fundamental Change Notice pursuant to Section 6(C); and (y) the effective date of such Fundamental Change.
(C)    Fundamental Change Notice. No later than the fifth (5th) Business Day before the occurrence of any Fundamental Change, the Company will send to the Holder a written notice (the “Fundamental Change Notice”) thereof, stating the expected date such Fundamental Change will occur and, if applicable, the Company’s election to repurchase this Note pursuant to Section 6(A).

The Fundamental Change Repurchase Price for this Note (or any portion of this Note to be repurchased) upon a Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change following a Fundamental Change is an amount in cash equal to the Fundamental Change Base Repurchase Price for such Fundamental Change plus accrued and unpaid interest on this Note (or such portion of this Note) to, but excluding, the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date for such Fundamental Change. For the avoidance of doubt, if such Fundamental Change Repurchase Date is on an Interest Payment Date, then the interest otherwise payable on this Note (or such portion of this Note) on such Interest Payment Date will be paid as part of the Fundamental Change Repurchase Price, in satisfaction of the Company’s obligation to pay such interest on such Interest Payment Date.
(E)    Effect of Repurchase. If this Note (or any portion of this Note) is to be repurchased upon a Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change, then, from and after the date the related Fundamental Change Repurchase Price is paid in full, this Note (or such portion) will cease to be outstanding and interest will cease to accrue on this Note (or such portion).

provided, however, that the Company may, in its sole discretion, defer any such Optional Redemption Payment (or any portion thereof) to any subsequent Optional Redemption Date by further written notice at any time prior to the applicable Optional Redemption Date.
(ii)    At the Holder’s election, if on or prior the date of such election the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement has terminated (or otherwise then no longer prohibits the Company from paying the Principal Amount and Stated Interest in cash), on any Business Day on or after May 31, 2024, requested by the Holder, the Company shall prepay all or the portion of the Principal Amount and Stated Interest in the amount specified in such request. The Holder shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent a written notice of any such election under this Section 7(A)(ii) at least ninety (90) days prior to the date of such requested redemption.
(B)    Effect of Optional Redemption Payment. If this Note (or any portion of this Note) is redeemed pursuant to Section 7(A), then, from and after the date the related Optional Redemption Payment or Holder requested redemption, as applicable, is paid in full, this Note (or such portion) will cease to be outstanding and interest will cease to accrue on this Note (or such portion).
Section 8.    Conversion.
(A)    Right to Convert.
(i)    Generally. Subject to the provisions of this Section 8, the Holder may, at its option, convert this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment, as applicable, or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment, into Conversion Consideration.

- 19 -
145813802_4


(2) the Senior Agent may not unreasonably withhold its consent to any such conversion requested by the Holder prior to the first anniversary of the date hereof if (x) the Last Reported Stock Price exceeds $1.00 (after proportional adjustment to give effect to any stock dividend, stock split or stock combination occurring after the Issue Date) for each of the twenty (20) Trading Days preceding the date of such request and (y) as of each such Trading Day and the date of such request, the Company has then filed all required reports under Section 13 or 15(d), as applicable, of the Exchange Act ; and (3) if the Intercreditor Agreement is then in effect, but the prohibition therein on any cash Optional Redemption Payment has been waived by the Senior Agent and any Optional Redemption Payment becomes due prior to such first anniversary, then the Holder may convert such Optional Redemption Payment without the prior written consent of the Senior Agent. For the avoidance of doubt, the Holder’s right to convert this Note shall not be impacted by a prior notice or election to defer any Optional Redemption Payment pursuant to Section 7(A) hereof.
(i)    Limitations and Closed Periods. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 8, if this Note (or any portion of this Note) is to be repurchased upon a Repurchase Upon Fundamental Change pursuant to Section 6, then this Note (or such portion) may not be converted after the Close of Business on the Scheduled Trading Day immediately before the related Fundamental Change Repurchase Date; provided, that this Section 8(B) shall no longer apply to this Note (or such applicable portion) if the applicable Fundamental Change Repurchase Price is not delivered on the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date in accordance with Section 6.
(C)    Conversion Procedures.
(i)    Generally. To convert this Note, the Holder must (1) complete, manually sign and deliver to the Company the conversion notice attached to this Note or a facsimile or portable document format (.pdf) version of such conversion notice (at which time such conversion will become irrevocable); and (2) pay any amounts due pursuant to Section 8(C)(iii). For the avoidance of doubt, the conversion notice may be delivered by e-mail in accordance with Section 14. If the Company fails to deliver, by the related Conversion Settlement Date, any shares of Common Stock forming part of the Conversion Consideration of the conversion of this Note, the Holder, by notice to the Company, may rescind all or any portion of the corresponding conversion notice at any time until such Defaulted Shares are delivered.

(iii)    Taxes and Duties. If the Holder converts a Note, the Company will pay any documentary, stamp or similar issue or transfer tax or duty due on the issue of any shares of Common Stock upon such conversion; provided, however, that if any tax or
- 20 -

duty is due because such Holder requested such shares to be issued in a name other than that of such Holder, then such Holder will pay such tax or duty and, until having received a sum sufficient to pay such tax or duty, the Company may refuse to deliver any such shares to be issued in a name other than that of such Holder.
(D)    Settlement upon Conversion.
(i)    Generally. The consideration (the “Conversion Consideration”) due in respect of each $1,000 Principal Amount of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment, to be converted will consist of the following:
(1)    subject to Section 8(D)(ii), a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate in effect on the Conversion Date for such conversion; and
(2)    cash in an amount equal to the aggregate accrued and unpaid interest on this Note to, but excluding, the Conversion Settlement Date for such conversion.
(ii)    Fractional Shares. The total number of shares of Common Stock due in respect of any conversion of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment, will be determined on the basis of the total Principal Amount of this Note to be converted with the same Conversion Date; provided, however, that if such number of shares of Common Stock is not a whole number, then such number will be rounded up to the nearest whole number.
(iii)    Delivery of the Conversion Consideration. The Company will pay or deliver, as applicable, the Conversion Consideration due upon the conversion of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment required to be paid by the Company on the next Optional Redemption Date or Optional Redemption Stock Payment Date, as applicable, or any outstanding deferred Optional Redemption Payment, to the Holder on or before the second (2nd) Business Day (or, if earlier, the standard settlement period for the primary national securities exchange, if any, on which the Common Stock is traded) immediately after the Conversion Date for such conversion (the “Conversion Settlement Date”).
(iv)    Effect of Conversion. If this Note is converted, then, from and after the date the Conversion Consideration therefor is issued or delivered in settlement of such conversion, this Note will cease to be outstanding and interest will cease to accrue on this Note.
(v)    Conversion Settlement Defaults. If (x) the Company fails to deliver, by the related Conversion Settlement Date, any shares of Common Stock (the “Defaulted Shares”) forming part of the Conversion Consideration of the conversion of this Note, including any portion constituting an Optional Redemption Payment or any deferred Optional Redemption Payment; and (y) the Holder (whether directly or indirectly,

145813802_4


including by any broker acting on the Holder’s behalf or acting with respect to such Defaulted Shares) purchases any shares of Common Stock (whether in the open market or otherwise) to cover any such Defaulted Shares (whether to satisfy any settlement obligations with respect thereto of the Holder or otherwise), then, without limiting the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedy available to it (whether hereunder, under applicable law or otherwise), the Holder will have the right, exercisable by notice to the Company, to cause the Company to either:
(1)    pay, on or before the second (2nd) Business Day after the date such notice is delivered, cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the aggregate purchase price (including any brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket costs) incurred to purchase such shares (such aggregate purchase price, the “Covering Price”); or
(2)    promptly deliver, to the Holder, such Defaulted Shares in accordance with this Note, together with cash in an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the Covering Price over the product of (x) the number of such Defaulted Shares; and (y) the Daily VWAP per share of Common Stock on the Conversion Date relating to such conversion.
To exercise such right, the Holder must deliver notice of such exercise to the Company, specifying whether the Holder has elected clause (1) or (2) above to apply. If the Holder has elected clause (1) to apply, then the Company’s obligation to deliver the Defaulted Shares in accordance with this Note will be deemed to have been satisfied and discharged to the extent the Company has paid the Covering Price in accordance with clause (1).

(E)    Reserve and Status of Common Stock Issued upon Conversion.
(i)    Stock Reserve. At all times when this Note is outstanding, the Company will reserve, out of its authorized but unissued and unreserved shares of Common Stock, a number of shares of Common Stock equal to (1) the then-outstanding Principal Amount of this Note plus accrued and unpaid interest on this Note; divided by (2) the then-applicable Conversion Price.

If the Common Stock is then listed on any securities exchange, or quoted on any inter-dealer quotation system, then the Company will cause each share of Common Stock issued upon conversion of this Note, when delivered upon such conversion, to be admitted for listing on such exchange or quotation on such system.
(iii)    Book-Entry Shares. Any shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of this Note will be issued in the form of book-entries at the facilities of DTC, with or without restrictive legends, as appropriate.
