Section 2.1 Conversion. The Lender shall have the right, at any time after the Company sells shares of its Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Stock”) to convert at any time, all or a portion of the outstanding Principal Amount and accrued and unpaid interest into fully paid and non-assessable shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Stock”) at a conversion price (the “Conversion Price”) equal to the price paid by the investors in the Company’s offering of Series B Stock (expected to be $7.50 per share).

No fraction of a share or scrip representing a fraction of a share will be issued on conversion, but the number of shares issuable shall be rounded to the nearest whole share. The date on which Notice of Conversion is given (the “Conversion Date”) shall be deemed to be the date on which the Lender delivers the Notice of Conversion duly executed to the Company.

Section 2.3 Option. In the event that the Company is awarded a a grant by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas ( a “CPRIT Grant”) and the Lender has converted all or a portion of this Note into Series B Stock, then the Lender will have the option (the “Option”), but not the obligation to purchase, at an exercise price of $1.25 per share, a number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock that shall be determined by multiplying 7,400,000 by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Series B Stock owned by the Lender and the denominator of which shall be 666,666. The Company shall provide written notice to the Lender of each funding of the CPRIT Grant and the Option must be exercised within thirty (30) says after the receipt of such notice (the “Funding Notice”) by the Lender sending written notice to the Company of the exercise of the Option and the number of shares being purchased. The number of shares that may be purchased following the receipt of the Funding Notice shall be proportionate to the ratio that the amount being funded bears to the total amount of the CPRIT Grant. By way of example, if 1/3 of the total CPRIT Grant is being funded, then only 1/3 of the shares subject to this Option may be purchased.
