The Note holders shall receive accrued and unpaid interest on the Note, paid in cash, up to, but excluding, the earlier of the date of conversion and the Maturity Date.

The Note issued pursuant to the Debt Settlement shall be secured by way of a general security agreement providing security ranking subordinate to the other secured indebtedness of the Company, over all of the present and after-acquired property of the Company.
