The execution and delivery of this Note, and the performance of Maker of its obligations hereunder, do not and will not violate, breach, or conflict with or require consent pursuant to any existing law or regulation or any writ or decree of any court or governmental authority, any of Maker’s constituent documents, or any agreement to which Maker or its assets are bound.

Maker knows of no claim, action, suit, proceeding, or investigation pending, threatened against or affecting Maker with respect to this Note or that has had, or would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on Maker’s ability to perform its obligations under this Note.

3. COVENANTS

3.01 Access to Records; Reporting.

3.02  Limitation on Transactions with Affiliates. Maker shall not directly or indirectly enter into any transaction for the purchase, lease, sale or exchange of property, the rendering of any service, or the payment of management, advisory or similar fees to any affiliate, except in the ordinary course of business upon fair and reasonable terms no more favorable than those extended in a comparable arm’s length transaction with an unaffiliated person or business.

4. EVENTS OF DEFAULT

4.03  Breach of Representations and Warranties. Any representation or warranty of the Maker made herein or in any agreement, statement or certificate given in writing pursuant hereto or in connection herewith (including, without limitation, the Stock Purchase Agreement), shall be false or misleading in any material respect when made and the breach of which has (or with the passage of time will have) a material adverse effect on the rights of the Holders with respect to this Note or the Stock Purchase Agreement.

4.08  Cessation of Operations. Any cessation of operations by Maker or Maker admits it is otherwise generally unable to pay its debts as such debts become due, though any disclosure of the Maker’s ability to continue as a “going concern” shall not be an admission that Maker cannot pay its debts as they become due.

5.03  Amendments. This Note and any provision hereof may only be amended by an instrument in writing signed by the Maker and the Holders. The term “Note” and all reference thereto, as used throughout this instrument, shall mean this instrument as originally executed, or if later amended or supplemented, then as so amended, or supplemented.

5.04 Assignability. Maker may not assign or transfer any of the obligations evidenced by this Note without the prior written consent of Holders. Notwithstanding anything in this Note to the contrary, this Note may be pledged as collateral in connection with a bona fide margin account or other lending arrangement.

5.04  Cost of Collection. Should Maker default on payment of this Note, Maker shall pay the Holders hereof costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.

5.05  Governing Law. This Note shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah without regard to principles of conflicts of laws. Any action brought by either party against the other concerning the transactions contemplated by this Note shall be brought only in the state courts of Utah or in the federal courts located in Salt Lake County. The parties to this Note hereby irrevocably waive any objection to the jurisdiction and venue for any action instituted hereunder and shall not assert any defense based on lack of jurisdiction or venue or based upon forum non conveniens. The Maker and Holders waive trial by jury. The prevailing Party or Parties shall be entitled to recover from the other Party or Parties their reasonable attorney's fees and costs.

Any such provision which may prove invalid or unenforceable under any law shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Note or the Stock Purchase Agreement. All Parties hereby irrevocably waive personal service of process and consent to process being served in any suit, action or proceeding in connection with this Note by mailing a copy thereof via registered or certified mail or overnight delivery (with evidence of delivery) to such party at the address in effect for notices pursuant to this Note and agree that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

5.06  Certain Amounts. Whenever pursuant to this Note the Maker is required to pay an amount in excess of the outstanding Principal Amount, the Maker and the Holders agree that the actual damages to the Holders from the receipt of a cash payment on this Note may be difficult to determine and the amount to be so paid by the Maker represents stipulated damages and not a penalty and is intended to compensate the Holders in part for loss of opportunity. The Maker and the Holders hereby agree that such amount of stipulated damages is not plainly disproportionate to the possible loss to the Holders.

5.07 Purchase Agreement. By its acceptance of this Note, each Party hereto agrees to be bound by the applicable terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement.

5.08  Remedies. The Maker acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holders, by vitiating the intent and purpose of the transaction contemplated hereby. Accordingly, the Maker acknowledges that the remedy at law for a breach of its obligations under this Note will be inadequate and agrees, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Maker of the provisions of this Note, that the Holders shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies at law or in equity, and in addition to the penalties assessable herein, to an injunction or injunctions restraining, preventing or curing any breach of this Note and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions thereof, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Maker has caused this Note to be signed in its name by its duly authorized officer this May 10, 2022.
