In the event the Company raises capital through the sale of Common Stock for cash during the period ending on the six year anniversary of the issuance date of the convertible notes, and the price per share thereof (the “Offering Price”) minus 20% is less than the original Conversion Price, then in such event the Company shall issue to all convertible loan holder at, at no further cost, additional shares of common stock equal to the number of conversion shares the holders would have received upon conversion if the Conversion Price equaled to a 20% discount to the Offering Price, less the number of shares of conversion shares actually issued on or as of the Maturity Date.
