THIS SECURITY HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE SECURITIES ACT), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE TRANSFEROR TO SUCH EFFECT, THE SUBSTANCE OF WHICH SHALL BE REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY.

Securities Filings.  The Company undertakes and agrees to make all necessary filings (including, without limitation, a Form D) in connection with the sale of the Securities to the Buyer required under any United States laws and regulations applicable to the Company (including without limitation state blue sky laws), or by any domestic securities exchange or trading market, and to provide a copy thereof to the Buyer promptly after such filing.


e. Reporting Status; Public Trading Market; DTC Eligibility.  So long as the Buyer beneficially own any Securities, (i) the Company shall timely file, prior to or on the date when due, all reports that would be required to be filed with the SEC pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act if the Company had securities registered under Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the Exchange Act; (ii) the Company shall not be operated as, or report, to the SEC or any other Person, that the Company is a shell company or indicate to the contrary to the SEC or any other Person; (iii) the Company shall take all other action under its control necessary to ensure the availability of Rule 144 under the 1933 Act for the sale of Shares by the Buyer at the earliest possible date; and (iv) the Company shall at all times while any Securities are outstanding maintain its engagement of an independent registered public accounting firm.  Except as otherwise set forth in Transaction Documents, the Company shall take all action under its control necessary to obtain and to continue the listing and trading of its Common Stock (including, without limitation, all Registrable Securities) on the OTC Markets, Inc. (OTCM) on the OTC Pink (OTCP), OTCQB (OTCQB), or OTCQX (OTCQX), and will comply in all material respects with the Companys reporting, filing and other obligations under the by-laws or rules of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).  If, so long as the Buyer beneficially own any of the Securities, the Company receives any written notice from the OTCM, FINRA, or the SEC with respect to either any alleged deficiency in the Companys compliance with applicable rules and regulations (including without limitation any comments from the SEC on any of the Companys documents filed (or the failure to have made any such filing) under the 1933 Act or the Exchange Act) (each, a Regulatory Notice), then the Company shall promptly, and in any event within two (2) business days, provide copies of the Regulatory Notice to the Buyer, and shall promptly, and in any event within five (5) business days of receipt of the Regulatory Notice (a Regulatory




13




Response), respond in writing to the OTCM, FIRNA and/or SEC (as the case may be), setting forth the Companys explanation and/or response to the issues raised in the Regulatory Notice, with a view towards maintaining and/or regaining full compliance with the applicable rules and regulations of the OTCM, FIRNA and/or SEC and maintaining or regaining good standing of the Company with the OTCM, FINRA and/or SEC, as the case may be, the intent being to ensure that the Company maintain its reporting company status with the SEC and that its Common Stock be and remain available for trading on the OTCP, OTCQB, or OTCQX.  Further, at all times while any Securities are outstanding, the Common Stock shall be DWAC Operational, and the Common Stock shall not be subject to any DTC chill designation or similar restriction on the clearing of the Common Stock through DTC.  


f. Use of Proceeds.   The Company shall use the proceeds from the sale of the Debentures for working capital purposes, provided, however, that the Company shall not use more than 20% of the proceeds of the sale of the Debentures to repay any indebtedness owed to any of the Companys affiliates or related parties.


g. Available Shares.  Commencing on the date of execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Company shall have and maintain authorized and reserved for issuance, free from preemptive rights, that number of shares equal to Five Hundred percent (500%) of the number of shares of Common Stock (1) issuable based upon the conversion of the then-outstanding Debentures (including accrued interest thereon) as may be required to satisfy the conversion rights of the Buyer pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Debenture (without giving effect to the 4.99% limitation on ownership as set forth in the Debentures), provided, however that for purposes of the foregoing calculation, the full indebtedness under the Debentures shall be deemed immediately convertible and (2) issuable to the Buyer on future Closing Dates, based upon the lowest closing bid price per share of the Common Stock on the date before the most recent Closing Date (as reported by Bloomberg LP). The Company shall monitor its compliance with the foregoing requirements on an ongoing basis.  If at any time the Company does not have available an amount of authorized and non-issued Shares required to be reserved pursuant to this Section, then the Company shall, without notice or demand by the Buyer, call within thirty (30) days of such occurrence and hold within sixty (60) days of such occurrence a special meeting of shareholders, for the sole purpose of increasing the number of shares authorized.  Management of the Company shall recommend to shareholders to vote in favor of increasing the number of Common Stock authorized at the meeting.  Members of the Companys management shall also vote all of their own shares in favor of increasing the number of Common Stock authorized at the meeting.  If the increase in authorized shares is approved by the stockholders at the meeting, the Company shall implement the increase in authorized shares within one (1) business day following approval at such meeting.  Alternatively, to the extent permitted by applicable law, in lieu of calling and holding a meeting as described above, the Company may, within thirty (30) days of the date when the Company does not have available an amount of authorized and non-issued Shares required to be reserved as described above, procure the written consent of stockholders to increase the number of shares authorized, and provide the stockholders with notice thereof as may be required under applicable law (including without limitation Section 14(c) of the Exchange Act and Regulation 14C thereunder).  Upon obtaining stockholder approval as aforesaid, the Company shall cause the appropriate increase in its authorized shares of Common Stock within one (1)



14



business day (or as soon thereafter as permitted by applicable law). Companys failure to comply with these provisions will be an Event of Default (as defined in the Debentures).


h. Reimbursement.  If (i) Buyer and/or Investments becomes a party defendant in any capacity in any action or proceeding brought by any stockholder of the Company, in connection with or as a result of the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, or if the Buyer and/or Investments is impleaded in any such action, proceeding or investigation by any Person, or (ii) the Buyer and/or Investments, other than by reason of its own gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of law (as adjudicated by a court of law having proper jurisdiction and such adjudication is not subject to appeal), becomes a party defendant in any capacity in any action or proceeding brought by the SEC against or involving the Company or in connection with or as a result of the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, or if the Buyer or Investments is impleaded in any such action, proceeding or investigation by any Person, then in any such case, the Company shall promptly reimburse the Buyer and/or Investments for its or their reasonable legal and other expenses (including the cost of any investigation and preparation) incurred in connection therewith. The reimbursement obligations of the Company under this paragraph shall be in addition to any liability which the Company may otherwise have, shall extend upon the same terms and conditions to any affiliates of the Buyer and/or Investments who are actually named in such action, proceeding or investigation, and partners, directors, agents, employees and controlling Persons (if any), as the case may be, of the Buyer, Investments and any such Affiliate, and shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives of the Company, the Buyer, Investments and any such Affiliate and any such Person.  Except as otherwise set forth in the Transaction Documents, the Company also agrees that neither any Buyer, Investments nor any such Affiliate, partners, directors, agents, employees or controlling Persons shall have any liability to the Company or any Person asserting claims on behalf of or in right of the Company in connection with or as a result of the consummation of the Transaction Documents.


i. The Company shall provide the Transfer Agent and/or the Buyer, Investments or their respective brokerage and/or clearing firm with all relevant legal opinions and other documentation requested by the Buyer in connection with the issuance of the Conversion Shares, or the sale thereof, to confirm the share issuance(s) such that the Conversion Shares and/or Restricted Stock may be deposited with the applicable brokerage and/or clearing firm.

j. No Payments to Affiliates or Related Parties.  So long as any of the Debentures remain outstanding, if the Debentures are in default, the Company shall not, absent the prior written consent of the holders of all Debentures then outstanding, make any payments to any of the Companys or the Subsidiaries respective affiliates or related parties, including without limitation payments or prepayments of principal or interest accrued on any indebtedness or obligation in favor of affiliates or related parties.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the provisions of this Section 4(j) shall not apply to payments to the Subsidiaries, or other businesses in which affiliates have an interest, made in the ordinary course of business and consistent with past practice as disclosed in the SEC Documents.


k. Notice of Material Adverse Effect.  The Company shall notify the Buyer (and any subsequent holder of the Debentures), as soon as practicable and in no event later than three (3) business days of the Companys knowledge of any Material Adverse Effect on the Company.  




15




For purposes of the foregoing, knowledge means the earlier of the Companys actual knowledge or the Companys constructive knowledge upon due inquiry.


l. Public Disclosure.  Except to the extent required by applicable law, absent the Buyers prior written consent, the Company shall not reference the name of the Buyer in any press release, securities disclosure, business plan, marketing or funding proposal.


m. Nature of Transaction; Savings Clause.  It is the parties express understanding and agreement that the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents constitute an investment and not a loan.  If nonetheless such transactions are deemed to be a loan (as adjudicated by a court of law having proper jurisdiction and such adjudication is not subject to appeal), the Company shall not be obligated or required to pay interest at a rate that could subject Buyer to either civil or criminal liability as a result of such rate exceeding the maximum rate that the Buyer is permitted to charge under applicable law, and the Companys obligations under the Transaction Documents shall not be void or voidable on the basis of the Buyers lack of any license or registration as a lender with any governmental authority.   It is expressly understood and agreed by the parties that neither the amounts payable pursuant to Section 12, any redemption premium, remedy upon an Event of Default (as defined in the Debentures) or any Acceleration Amount (as defined in the Debentures), original issue discount nor any investment returns of the Buyer on the sale of the Debentures or the sale of any Conversion Shares (whether unrealized or realized) shall be construed as interest.  If, by the terms of the Debentures, any other Transaction Document or any other instrument, Buyer is at any time required or obligated to pay interest at a rate exceeding such maximum rate, interest payable under the Debenture and/or such other Transaction Documents or other instrument shall be computed (or recomputed) at such maximum rate, and the portion of all prior interest payments (if any) exceeding such maximum shall be applied to payment of the outstanding principal of the Debentures.  


4. TRANSFER AGENT INSTRUCTIONS.


a. Transfer Agent Instruction Letter.  On or before the Signing Closing Date, the Company shall irrevocably instruct its Transfer Agent in writing using the letter substantially in the form of Exhibit B annexed hereto, with only such modifications as the Buyer agrees to, executed by the Company, the Buyer and the Transfer Agent (the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter), to (i) reserve that number of shares of Common Stock as is required under Section 4(g) hereof, and (ii) issue Common Stock from time to time upon conversion of the Debentures in such amounts as specified from time to time by the Buyer to the Transfer Agent in a Notice of Conversion, in such denominations to be specified by the Buyer in connection with each conversion of the Debentures.   The Transfer Agent shall not be restricted from issuing shares from only the allotment reserved hereunder for the Conversion Amount (as defined in the Debentures), but instead may, to the extent necessary to satisfy the amount of shares issuable upon conversion, issue shares above and beyond the amount reserved on account of the Conversion Amount, without any additional instructions or authorization from the Company, and the Company shall not provide the Transfer Agent with any instructions or documentation contrary to the foregoing.  As of the date of this Agreement, the Transfer Agent is Pacific Stock Transfer Co..  The Company shall at all times while any Debentures are outstanding engage a Transfer Agent which is a party to the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter.  If for any reason the Companys Transfer Agent is not a



16



signatory of the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter while any Debentures or Restricted Stock are outstanding and held by the Buyer, then such Transfer Agent shall nonetheless be deemed bound by the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter, and the Company shall neither (i) permit the Transfer Agent to disclaim, disregard or refuse to abide by the Transfer Agents obligations, terms and agreements set forth in the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter, nor (ii) issue any instructions to the Transfer Agent contrary to the obligations, terms and agreements set forth in the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter .  The Company shall not terminate the Transfer Agent or otherwise change Transfer Agents without at least fifteen (15) days prior written notice to the Buyer and with the Buyers prior written consent to such change, which the Buyer may grant or withhold in its sole discretion.  The Company shall continuously monitor its compliance with the share reservation requirements and, if and to the extent necessary to increase the number of reserved shares to remain and be at least Five Hundred percent (500%) of the Conversion Amount to account for any decrease in the Market Price of the Common Stock, the Company shall immediately (and in any event within two (2) business days) notify the Transfer Agent in writing of the reservation of such additional shares, provided that in the event that the number of shares reserved for conversion of the Debentures is less than Five Hundred percent (500%) of the Conversion Amount, the Buyer may also directly instruct the Transfer Agent to increase the reserved shares as necessary to satisfy the minimum reserved share requirement, and the Transfer Agent shall act accordingly, provided, further, that the Company shall within two (2) business days provide any written confirmation, assent or documentation thereof as the Transfer Agent may request to act upon a share increase instruction delivered by the Buyer.  The Company shall provide the Buyer with a copy of all written instructions to the Companys Transfer Agent with respect to the reservation of shares simultaneously with the issuance of such instructions to the Transfer Agent.  The Company covenants that no instruction other than such instructions referred to in this Section 5 and stop transfer instructions to give effect to Section 4(a) hereof prior to registration and sale of the Conversion Shares under the 1933 Act will be given by the Company to the Transfer Agent and that the Conversion Shares shall otherwise be freely transferable on the books and records of the Company as and to the extent provided in this Agreement and applicable law.  If the Buyer provides the Company and/or the Transfer Agent with an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company that registration of a resale by the Buyer of any of the Securities in accordance with clause (1)(B) of Section 4(a) of this Agreement is not required under the 1933 Act, the Company shall (except as provided in clause (2) of Section 4(a) of this Agreement) permit the de-legending or transfer of the Securities and, in the case of the Conversion Shares, instruct the Companys Transfer Agent to issue one or more certificates for Common Stock without legend in such name and in such denominations as specified by the Buyer.  

b. Conversion.  (i) The Company shall permit the Buyer to exercise the right to convert the Debentures by faxing, emailing or delivering overnight an executed and completed Notice of Conversion to the Company or the Transfer Agent.  If so requested by the Buyer or the Transfer Agent, the Company shall within one (1) business day respond with its endorsement so as to confirm the outstanding principal amount of any Debenture submitted for conversion or shall reconcile any difference with the Buyer promptly after receiving such Notice of Conversion.


(i) The term Conversion Date means, with respect to any conversion elected by the holder of the Debentures, the date specified in the Notice of Conversion, provided the copy of the Notice of Conversion is given either via mail or facsimile to or otherwise delivered to the




17




Transfer Agent and/or the Company in accordance with the provisions hereof so that it is received by the Transfer Agent and/or the Company on or before such specified date.


(i) The Company shall deliver (or will cause the Transfer Agent to deliver) the Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion as follows:  (1) if the Company is then DWAC Operational, via DWAC, (2) if the Common Stock is then eligible for the Depository Trust Companys Direct Registration System (DRS), if so requested by the Buyer, or (3) if the Company is not then DWAC Operational or the Common Stock is not then eligible for DRS, in certificated form, to the Buyer at the address specified in the Notice of Conversion (which may be the Buyers address for notices as contemplated by Section 10 hereof or a different address) via express courier, in each case within two (2) business days (the Delivery Date) after (A) the business day on which the Company or the Transfer Agent has received the Notice of Conversion (by facsimile, email or other delivery) or (B) the date on which payment of interest and principal on the Debentures, which the Company has elected to pay by the issuance of Common Stock, as contemplated by the Debentures, was due, as the case may be.


a. Failure to Timely Issue Conversion Shares or De-Legended Shares.    The Companys failure to issue and deliver Conversion Shares to the Buyer (either by DWAC, DRS or in certificated form, as required by Section 5(b)) on or before the Delivery Date shall be considered an Event of Default, which shall entitle the Buyer to certain remedies set forth in the Debentures and provided by applicable law.  Similarly, the Companys failure to issue and deliver Common Stock in unrestricted form without a restrictive legend when required under the Transaction Documents shall entitle the Buyer to damages for the diminution in value (if any) of the relevant shares between the date delivery was due versus the date ultimately delivered in unrestricted form.  The Company acknowledges that its failure to timely honor a Notice of Conversion (or the occurrence of any other Event of Default) shall cause definable financial hardship on the Buyer(s) and that the remedies set forth herein and in the Debentures are reasonable and appropriate.


b. Duties of Company; Authorization.  The Company shall inform the Transfer Agent of the reservation of shares contemplated by Section 4(g) and this Section 5, and shall keep current in its payment obligations to the Transfer Agent such that the Transfer Agent will continue to process share transfers and the initial issuance of shares of Common Stock upon the conversion of Debentures.  The Company hereby authorizes and agrees to authorize the Transfer Agent to correspond and otherwise communicate with the Buyer or their representatives in connection with the foregoing and other matters related to the Common Stock.  Further, the Company hereby authorizes the Buyer or its representative to provide instructions to the Transfer Agent that are consistent with the foregoing and instructs the Transfer Agent to honor any such instructions.  Should the Company fail for any reason to keep current in its payment obligations to the Transfer Agent, the Buyer and/or Investments may pay such amounts as are necessary to compensate the Transfer Agent for performing its duties with respect to share reservation, issuance of Conversion Shares and/or de-legending certificates representing Restricted Stock, and all amounts so paid shall be promptly reimbursed by the Company.  If not so reimbursed within thirty (30) days, such amounts shall, at the option of the Buyer and without prior notice to or consent of the Company, be added to the principal amount due under the Debenture(s) held by the Buyer, whereupon interest will begin to accrue on such amounts at the rate specified in the Debentures.


c.



18



Effect of Bankruptcy.  The Buyer shall be entitled to exercise its conversion privilege with respect to the Debentures notwithstanding the commencement of any case under 11 U.S.C. §101 et seq. (the Bankruptcy Code).  In the event the Company is a debtor under the Bankruptcy Code, the Company hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted, any rights to relief it may have under 11 U.S.C. §362 in respect of the Buyers conversion privilege.  The Company hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted, any rights to relief it may have under 11 U.S.C. §362 in respect of the conversion of the Debentures.  The Company agrees, without cost or expense to the Buyer, to take or to consent to any and all action necessary to effectuate relief under 11 U.S.C. §362.

Issuance Date:  ____________, 2017

Principal Amount:  $____________


FOR VALUE RECEIVED, ACACIA DIVERSIFIED HOLDINGS, INC., a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Texas) (the Company), hereby promises to pay to PEAK ONE OPPORTUNITY FUND, L.P., having its address at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, or its assigns (the Holder and together with the other holders of Debentures issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement (as defined below), the Holders), the initial principal sum of ____________and 00/100 Dollars ($____________) (subject to adjustment as provided herein, the Principal Amount) on ____________, 2019 (the Maturity Date) [THIRD ANNIVERSARY OF DATE OF ISSUANCE].  The Company has the option to redeem this Debenture prior to the Maturity Date pursuant to Section 2(b).  All unpaid principal due and payable on the Maturity Date shall be paid in the form of Common Stock of the Company, par value $0.001 per share (Common Stock) pursuant to Section 3.  The Holder has the option to cause any outstanding principal and accrued interest, if any, on this Debenture to be converted into Common Stock at any time prior to the Redemption Date (as defined below) or the Maturity Date pursuant to Section 2(a).


This Debenture is one of the Debentures referred to in the Securities Purchase Agreement (the Securities Purchase Agreement) dated as of March __, 2017, between the Company and the Holder.  Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Securities Purchase Agreement.  This Debenture is subject to the provisions of the Securities Purchase Agreement and further is subject to the following additional provisions:


1. This Debenture has been issued subject to investment representations of the original purchaser hereof and may be transferred or exchanged only in compliance with the Securities Act and other applicable state and foreign securities laws.  The Holder may transfer or assign this Debenture (or any part thereof) without the prior consent of the Company, and the Company shall cooperate with any such transfer.  In the event of any proposed transfer of this Debenture, the Company may require, prior to issuance of a new Debenture in the name of such other Person, that it receive reasonable transfer documentation including legal opinions that the issuance of the Debenture in such other name does not and will not cause a violation of the Securities Act or any




5



applicable state or foreign securities laws or is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. Prior to due presentment for transfer of this Debenture to which the Company has consented, the Company and any agent of the Company may treat the Person in whose name this Debenture is duly registered on the Company's books and records of outstanding debt securities and obligations (Debenture Register) as the owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment as herein provided and for all other purposes, whether or not this Debenture be overdue, and neither the Company nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.


2. Conversion at Holders Option; Redemption at Companys Option.


a. The Holder is entitled to, at any time or from time to time, convert the Conversion Amount (as defined below) into Conversion Shares, at a conversion price for each share of Common Stock (the Conversion Price) equal to either: (i) if no Event of Default (as defined herein) has occurred and the date of conversion is prior to the date that is one hundred eighty (180) days after the Issuance Date, $1.60, or (ii) if an Event of Default has occurred or the date of conversion is on or after the date that is one hundred eighty (180) days after the Issuance Date, the lesser of (a) $1.60 or (b) Seventy percent (70%) of the second lowest closing bid price (as reported by Bloomberg LP) of the Common Stock for the twenty (20) Trading Days immediately preceding the date of the date of conversion (for clarification purposes, if the lowest closing bid price during the applicable period is equal to the second lowest closing bid price during the applicable period, then such lowest closing bid price shall still be utilized for purposes of this calculation) of the Debentures (provided, further, that if either the Company is not DWAC Operational at the time of conversion or the Common Stock is traded on the OTC Pink (OTCP) at the time of conversion, then Seventy percent (70%) shall automatically adjust to Sixty Five percent (65%) of the second lowest closing bid price (as reported by Bloomberg LP) of the Common Stock for the twenty (20) Trading Days immediately preceding the date of conversion of the Debentures) (for clarification purposes, if the lowest closing bid price during the applicable period is equal to the second lowest closing bid price during the applicable period, then such lowest closing bid price shall still be utilized for purposes of this calculation), subject in each case to equitable adjustments resulting from any stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations or similar events. The Company shall issue irrevocable instructions to its Transfer Agent regarding conversions such that the transfer agent shall be authorized and instructed to issue Conversion Shares upon its receipt of a Notice of Conversion without further approval or authorization from the Company.  For purposes of this Debenture, the Conversion Amount shall mean the sum of (A) all or any portion of the outstanding Principal Amount of this Debenture, as designated by the Holder upon exercise of its right of conversion plus (B) any interest, pursuant to Section 10 or otherwise, that has accrued on the portion of the Principal Amount that has been designated for payment pursuant to (A).


Conversion shall be effectuated by delivering by facsimile, email or other delivery method to the Transfer Agent of the completed form of conversion notice attached hereto as Annex A (the Notice of Conversion), executed by the Holder of the Debenture evidencing such Holder's intention to convert this Debenture or a specified portion hereof.  No fractional shares of Common Stock or scrip representing fractions of shares will be issued on conversion, but the number of shares issuable shall be rounded to the nearest whole share.  The Holder may, at its election, deliver a Notice of Conversion to either the Company or the Transfer Agent.  The date on which notice of conversion is given (the Conversion Date) shall be deemed to be the date on which the Company or the Transfer Agent, as the case may be, receives by fax, email or other means of delivery used





by the Holder the Notice of Conversion (such receipt being evidenced by electronic confirmation of delivery by facsimile or email or confirmation of delivery by such other delivery method used by the Holder).  Delivery of a Notice of Conversion to the Transfer Agent may be given by the Holder by facsimile at 800-785-7782, by email to [email protected] or by delivery to the Transfer Agent at the address set forth in the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter (or such other contact facsimile number, email or street address as may be designated by the Transfer Agent to the Holder).  Delivery of a Notice of Conversion to the Company shall be given by the Holder pursuant to the notice provisions set forth in Section 10 of the Agreement.  The Conversion Shares must be delivered to the Holder within three (3) business days from the date of delivery of the Notice of Conversion to the Transfer Agent or Company, as the case may be.  Conversion shares shall be delivered by DWAC so long as the Company is then DWAC Operational, unless the Holder expressly requests delivery in certificated form or the Conversion Shares are in the form of Restricted Stock and are required to bear a restrictive legended.  Conversion Shares shall be deemed delivered (i) if delivered by DWAC, upon deposit into the Holders brokerage account, or (ii) if delivered in certificated form, upon the Holders actual receipt of the Conversion Shares in certificated form at the address specified by the Holder in the Notice of Conversion, as confirmed by written receipt.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless the Holder delivers to the Company written notice at least sixty-one (61) days prior to the effective date of such notice that the provisions of this paragraph (the Limitation on Ownership) shall not apply to such Holder, in no event shall a holder of Debentures have the right to convert Debentures into, nor shall the Company issue to such Holder, shares of Common Stock to the extent that such conversion would result in the Holder and its affiliates together beneficially owning more than 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.  For purposes hereof, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and Regulation 13D-G under the Exchange Act.


b.

So long as no Event of Default (as defined in Section 10) shall have occurred and be continuing (whether such Event of Default has been declared by the Holder) (unless the Holder consents to such redemption notwithstanding such Event of Default, as described in clause (v), below), the Company may at its option call for redemption all or part of the Debentures, with the exception of any portion thereof which is the subject of a previously-delivered Notice of Conversion, prior to the Maturity Date, as follows:


(i)

The Debentures called for redemption shall be redeemable by the Company, upon not more than two (2) days written notice, for an amount (the Redemption Price) equal to: (i) if the Redemption Date (as defined below) is ninety (90) days or less from the date of issuance of this Debenture, One Hundred Five percent (105%) of the sum of the Principal Amount so redeemed plus accrued interest, if any; (ii) if the Redemption Date is greater than or equal to one ninety-one (91) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture and less than or equal to one hundred twenty (120) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture, One Hundred Fifteen percent (115%) of the sum of the Principal Amount so redeemed plus accrued interest, if any; (iii) if the Redemption Date is greater than or equal to one hundred twenty one (121) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture and less than or equal to one hundred fifty (150) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture, One Hundred Twenty percent (120%) of the sum of the Principal Amount so redeemed plus accrued interest, if any; (iv) if the Redemption Date is greater than or equal to one hundred fifty one (151) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture and




7



less than or equal to one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture, One Hundred Thirty percent (130%) of the sum of the Principal Amount so redeemed plus accrued interest, if any; and (v) if either (1) the Debentures are in default but the Holder consents to the redemption notwithstanding such default or (2) the Redemption Date is greater than or equal to one hundred eighty one (181) days from the date of issuance of this Debenture, One Hundred Forty percent (140%) of the sum of the Principal Amount so redeemed plus accrued interest, if any.  The date upon which the Debentures are redeemed and paid shall be referred to as the Redemption Date (and, in the case of multiple redemptions of less than the entire outstanding Principal Amount, each such date shall be a Redemption Date with respect to the corresponding redemption).


(ii)

If fewer than all outstanding Debentures are to be redeemed and are held by different investors, then all Debentures shall be partially redeemed on a pro rata basis.


(iii)

[Reserved]


(iv)

On the Redemption Date, the Company shall cause the Holders whose Debentures have been presented for redemption to be issued payment of the Redemption Price.  In the case of a partial redemption, the Company shall also issue new Debentures to the Holders for the Principal Amount remaining outstanding after the Redemption Date promptly after the Holders presentation of the Debentures called for redemption.


(v)

To effect a redemption the Company shall provide a written notice to the Holder(s) not more than two (2) days prior to the Redemption Date (the Redemption Notice), setting forth the following:


1.

the Redemption Date;


2.

the Redemption Price;


3.

the aggregate Principal Amount of the Debentures being called for redemption;


4.

a statement instructing the Holders to surrender their Debentures for redemption and payment of the Redemption Price, including the name and address of the Company or, if applicable, the paying agent of the Company, where Debentures are to be surrendered for redemption;


5.

a statement advising the Holders that the Debentures (or, in the case of a partial redemption, that portion of the Principal Amount being called for redemption) as of the Redemption Date will cease to be convertible into Common Stock as of the Redemption Date; and


6.

in the case of a partial redemption, a statement advising the Holders that after the Redemption Date a substitute Debenture will be issued by the Company after deduction the portion thereof called for redemption, at no cost to the Holder, if the Holder so requests.






Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Company issues a Redemption Notice but fails to fund the redemption on the Redemption Date, then such Redemption Notice shall be null and void, and (i) the Holder(s) shall be entitled to convert the Debentures previously the subject of the Redemption Notice, and (ii) the Company may not redeem such Debentures for at least thirty (30) days following the intended Redemption Date that was voided, and the Company shall be required to pay to the Holder(s) the Redemption Price simultaneously with the issuance of a Redemption Notice in connection with any subsequent redemption pursued by the Company.


1. Unless demand has otherwise been made by the Holder in writing for payment in cash as provided hereunder, and so long as no Event of Default shall exist (whether or not notice thereof has been delivered by the Holder to the Company), any Debentures not previously tendered to the Company for conversion as of the Maturity Date shall be deemed to have been surrendered for conversion, without further action of any kind by the Company or any of its agents, employees or representatives, as of the Maturity Date at the Conversion Price applicable on the Maturity Date (Mandatory Conversion).


2. No provision of this Debenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional to convert this Debenture into Common Stock, at the time, place, and rate herein prescribed.  This Debenture is a direct obligation of the Company.


3. If the Company (a) merges or consolidates with another corporation or business entity and the Company is not the surviving entity or (b) sells or transfers all or substantially all of its assets to another Person and the holders of the Common Stock are entitled to receive stock, securities or property in respect of or in exchange for Common Stock, then as a condition of such merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, the Company and any such successor, purchaser or transferee will agree that this Debenture may thereafter be converted on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth above into the kind and amount of stock, securities or property receivable upon such merger, consolidation, sale or transfer by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which this Debenture might have been converted immediately before such merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable.  In the event of any (i) proposed merger or consolidation where the Company is not the surviving entity or (ii) sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company (in either such case, a Sale), the Holder shall have the right to convert by delivering a Notice of Conversion to the Company within fifteen (15) days of receipt of notice of such Sale from the Company.


4. If, at any time while any portion of this Debenture remains outstanding, the Company effectuates a stock split or reverse stock split of its Common Stock or issues a dividend on its Common Stock consisting of shares of Common Stock or otherwise recapitalizes its Common Stock, the Conversion Price shall be equitably adjusted to reflect such action.  By way of illustration, and not in limitation, of the foregoing (i) if the Company effectuates a 2:1 split of its Common Stock, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues the shares after the record date of such split, the Conversion Price shall be deemed to be one-half of what it had been calculated to be immediately prior to such split; (ii) if the Company effectuates a 1:10 reverse split of its Common Stock, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues the shares after the record date of such reverse split, the Conversion Price shall be deemed to be the amount of such Conversion Price calculated immediately prior to the record




9



date multiplied by 10; and (iii) if the Company declares a stock dividend of one share of Common Stock for every 10 shares outstanding, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues the shares after the record date of such dividend, the Conversion Price shall be deemed to be the amount of such Conversion Price calculated immediately prior to such record date multiplied by a fraction, of which the numerator is the number of shares for which a dividend share will be issued and the denominator is such number of shares plus the dividend share(s) issuable or issued thereon.


5. All payments contemplated hereby to be made in cash shall be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts.  All payments of cash and each delivery of shares of Common Stock issuable to the Holder as contemplated hereby shall be made to the Holder to an account designated by the Holder to the Company and if the Holder has not designated any such accounts at the address last appearing on the Debenture Register of the Company as designated in writing by the Holder from time to time; except that the Holder may designate, by notice to the Company, a different delivery address for any one or more specific payments or deliveries.


6. The Holder of the Debenture, by acceptance hereof, agrees that this Debenture is being acquired for investment and that such Holder will not offer, sell or otherwise dispose of this Debenture or the Shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof except in compliance with the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement and under circumstances which will not result in a violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state Blue Sky or foreign laws or similar laws relating to the sale of securities.


7. This Debenture shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Nevada. Each of the parties consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and/or federal courts located in Miami-Dade County, Florida in connection with any dispute arising under this Agreement.  This provision is intended to be a mandatory forum selection clause and governed by and interpreted consistent with Florida law (Nevada law governing all other, substantive matters). Each of the parties hereby consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any state or federal court having its situs in said county, and each waives any objection based on forum non conveniens.  To the extent determined by such court, the Company shall reimburse the Holder for any reasonable legal fees and disbursements incurred by the Holder in enforcement of or protection of any of its rights under this Debenture or the Securities Purchase Agreement.

q. At any time while this Debenture is outstanding, the lowest traded price on the OTCP, OTCQB, or OTCQX, or other applicable principal trading market for the Common Stock, is equal to or less than $0.0001.


Then, or at any time thereafter, the Company shall immediately give written notice of the occurrence of such Event of Default to the Holders of all Debentures then outstanding, and in each and every such case, unless such Event of Default shall have been waived in writing by a majority in interest of the Holders of the Debentures (which waiver shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent default), then at the option of a majority in interest of the Holders and in the discretion of a majority in interest of the Holders, take any or all of the following actions:  (i) pursue remedies against the Company in accordance with any of the Holders rights, (ii) increase the interest rate applicable to the Debentures to the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum and the maximum interest rate allowable under applicable law, (iii) in the case of an Event of Default under Section 10(e)(ii)(1) based on the Companys failure to be DWAC Operational, increase the Principal Amount to an amount equal to one hundred five percent (105%) of the then-outstanding Principal Amount, (iv) in the case of an Event of Default under Section 10(d)(i), increase the Principal Amount to an amount equal to one hundred ten percent (110%) of the then-outstanding Principal Amount, (v) in the case of an Event of Default under Section 10(d)(i) through (v), increase the Principal Amount of the relevant Holders Debenture by One Thousand Dollars and 00/100 ($1,000.00) for each day the related failure continues, (vi) in the case of an Event of Default under Section 10(d)(ii) through (v) arising from an untimely delivery to the Holder of Conversion Shares or shares of Common Stock in de-legended form, if the closing bid price of the Common Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the actual date of delivery of Conversion Shares or de-legended shares, as the case may be, is less than the closing bid price on the Trading Day immediately prior to the date when Conversion Shares or de-legended shares were required to be delivered, increase the Principal Amount of the relevant Holders Debenture by an amount per share equal to such difference, and (vii) following the expiration of the applicable grace period (if any), at the option and discretion of the Holder, accelerate the full indebtedness under this Debenture, in an amount equal to one hundred forty percent (140%) of the outstanding Principal Amount and accrued and unpaid interest (the Acceleration Amount), whereupon the Acceleration Amount shall be immediately due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kinds, all of which are hereby expressly waived, anything contained herein, in the Securities Purchase Agreement or in any other note or instruments to the contrary notwithstanding.  In the case of an Event of Default under Section 10(d)(ii), the Holder may either (i) declare the Acceleration Amount to exclude the Conversion Amount that is the subject of the Event of Default, in which case the Acceleration Amount shall be based on the remaining Principal Amount and accrued interest (if any), in which case the Company shall continue to be obligated to issue the Conversion Shares, or (ii) declare the Acceleration Amount to include the Conversion Amount that is the subject of the Event of Default, in which case the Acceleration Amount shall be based on the full Principal Amount, including the Conversion Amount, and accrued interest (if any), whereupon the Notice of Conversion shall be deemed withdrawn.  At its option, the Holder may elect to convert the Debenture pursuant to Section 2 notwithstanding the prior declaration of a




13



default and acceleration, in the sole discretion of such Holder.  A majority in interest of the Holders may immediately enforce any and all of the Holder's rights and remedies provided herein or any other rights or remedies afforded by applicable law.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of a default under Section 10(d)(ii) through (iv), the Holder of the Debenture sought to be converted, transferred or de-legended, as the case may be, acting singly, shall have the sole and absolute discretion to increase the applicable interest rate on the Debentures held by such Holder and/or to accelerate the Debenture(s) held by such Holder.  The Company expressly acknowledges and agrees that the Holders exercise of any or all of the remedies provided herein or under applicable law, including without limitation the increase(s) in the Principal Amount and the Acceleration Amount as may be declared in the case of a default, is reasonable and appropriate due to the inability to define the financial hardship that the Companys default would impose on the Holders.  To the extent that the Holders exercise of any of its remedies in the case of an Event of Default shall be construed to exceed the maximum interest rate allowable under applicable law, then such remedies shall be reduced to equal the maximum interest rate allowable under applicable law


1. Nothing contained in this Debenture shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder the right to vote or to receive dividends or to consent or receive notice as a shareholder in respect of any meeting of shareholders or any rights whatsoever as a shareholder of the Company, unless and to the extent converted in accordance with the terms hereof.


2. This Debenture may be amended only by the written consent of the parties hereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Principal Amount of this Debenture shall automatically be reduced by any and all Conversion Amounts (to the extent that the same relate to principal hereof).  


3. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Debenture and the provisions of any other Transaction Document, the provisions of this Debenture shall prevail.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event the Transfer Agent is not required to transfer any Common Stock, issue Conversion Shares or de-legended shares of Restricted Stock pursuant to the Transfer Agent Instruction Letter, this shall not operate as an excuse, extension or waiver of the Companys obligation to issue and deliver Conversion Shares or de-legended Restricted Stock.


4. The Company specifically acknowledges and agrees that in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Company of any provision hereof or of any other Transaction Document, the Holder will be irreparably damaged, and that damages at law would be an inadequate remedy if this Debenture or such other Transaction Document were not specifically enforced.  Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Company, the Holder shall be entitled, in addition to all other rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post any bond or other security, and/or to a decree for a specific performance of the provisions of this Debenture and the other Transaction Documents.


5. No waivers or consents in regard to any provision of this Debenture may be given other than by an instrument in writing signed by the Holder.


16.

Each time, while this Debenture is outstanding, the Company enters into a Section 3(a)(9) transaction (including but not limited to the issuance of new promissory notes or debentures, or of a replacement promissory note or debenture), or Section 3(a)(10) transaction, in





which any 3rd party has the  right to convert monies owed to that 3rd party (or receive shares pursuant to a settlement or otherwise) at a discount to market greater than the Conversion Price in effect at that  time (prior to all other applicable adjustments in this Debenture), then the Conversion Price shall be automatically adjusted to such greater discount percentage (prior to all applicable adjustments in this Debenture) until this Debenture is no longer outstanding. Each time, while this Debenture is outstanding, the Company enters into a Section 3(a)(9) transaction (including but not limited to the issuance of new promissory notes or debentures, or of a replacement promissory note or debenture), or Section 3(a)(10) transaction, in which any 3rd party has a look back period greater than the look back period in effect under this Debenture at that time (currently a twenty (20) Trading Day look back period as described in this Debenture applies), then the Holders look back period shall automatically be adjusted to such greater number of days until this Debenture is no longer outstanding. The Company shall give written notice to the Holder, with the adjusted Conversion Price and/or adjusted look back period (each adjustment that is applicable due to the triggering event), within one (1) business day of an event that requires any adjustment described in this section.

IRREVOCABLE TRANSFER AGENT INSTRUCTION LETTER



March __, 2017


Pacific Stock Transfer Co.

6725 Via Austi Parkway, Suite 300

Las Vegas, NV 89119


          

Re:  Irrevocable Instructions for Peak One Opportunity Fund, LP


Ladies and Gentlemen:


ACACIA DIVERSIFIED HOLDINGS, INC., a Texas corporation (the "Company") and Peak One Opportunity Fund, L.P.  (together with its successors and assigns, the "Investor") have entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of March __, 2017 (the "Agreement") providing for the issuance of the Convertible Debentures, convertible into the Companys common stock, par value $0.001 per share (Common Stock) in the principal amount of up to $400,000.00 (collectively, the "Debentures").


A copy of the form of the Debentures is attached hereto.  The shares of Common Stock to be issued upon conversion of the Debentures are to be registered in the name(s) of the registered holder(s) of the Debentures submitted for conversion, or its assignees, as requested by the Investor.


Pacific Stock Transfer Co. (Pacific Stock Transfer Co., the Transfer Agent or you) are hereby irrevocably authorized and instructed to reserve a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock of the Company to satisfy the Companys share reservation requirement of 500% of the Debentures under the Agreement (initially,  476,190 shares of Common Stock which should be held in reserve for the Investor pursuant to the subject Debentures as of this date) for issuance upon conversion of any of the Debentures referenced herein in accordance with the terms thereof (without giving effect to the 4.99% limitation on ownership, each as set forth in the Debentures).  The amount of Common Stock so reserved may be increased, from time to time, by written instructions of the Company or the Investor.  The amount of Common Stock so reserved may not be decreased without the prior written consent of the Investor (unless such decrease in reserved shares is due to an issuance of reserved shares pursuant to the conversion of Debentures).  You will adjust the number of reserved shares accordingly, within one (1) business day of receipt of any such instructions, so as long as there are sufficient available authorized shares.


The ability to convert the Debentures in a timely manner is a material obligation of the Company pursuant to the Debentures.  Your firm is hereby irrevocably authorized and instructed to issue shares of Common Stock of the Company (without any restrictive legend) to the Investor at the





request of the Investor without any further action or confirmation by the Company, in which case the issuance shall be deducted against the reserve or, if there are not enough shares held in reserve, from available authorized shares of the Company, either (i) electronically by crediting the account of the Investors broker with the Depository Trust Company through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system, provided that the Company has been made FAST/DRS eligible by DTCC (DWAC), or (ii) if requested by the Investor or if a legal opinion is not provided to the Transfer Agent as described below, in certificated form without any legend which would restrict the transfer of the shares, and you should remove all stop-transfer instructions relating to such shares: (A) upon your receipt from the Investor dated within two (2) business days from the date of the issuance or transfer request, of: (i) a notice of conversion ("Notice of Conversion") executed by the Investor; and (ii) an opinion of counsel of the Investor or the Company, in form, substance and scope customary for opinions of counsel in comparable transactions (and reasonably satisfactory to the Transfer Agent), to the effect that the shares of Common Stock of the Company issued to the Investor pursuant to the Notice of Conversion are not "restricted securities" as defined in Rule 144 and should be issued to the Investor without any restrictive legend; and (B) the number of shares to be issued is less than 4.99% of the total issued Common Stock of the Company.  If an opinion from counsel is not provided, you are instructed and authorized to issue shares to the Investor as restricted and the associated certificate(s) should include the customary 144 restrictive legend.  You will issue the Common Stock upon conversion within three (3) business days of receipt of a Conversion Notice and any other documents and information you reasonably request.  The Transfer Agent must issue the shares of Common Stock to the Investor, pursuant to this agreement, despite any threatened or ongoing dispute between the Company and Investor, unless there is a valid court order prohibiting such issuance.


The Company affirms that it has by all appropriate corporate action irrevocably resolved to issue all required Common Stock to the investor and hereby requests that your firm act immediately, without delay and without the need for any action or confirmation by the Company with respect to the reservation of shares and the  issuance of Common Stock pursuant to any Conversion Notices received from the Investor. You agree that the Companys irrevocable resolutions and this irrevocable letter of instructions constitute sufficient documentation to evidence the Companys authorization to complete the activities contemplated hereby and that no other Company documentation or confirmation shall be necessary or requested from the Company.  The Company hereby irrevocably appoints the Investor as its attorney-in-fact for purposes of executing and delivering, in the Companys name, any documentation or confirmation that the transfer agent may request in connection with the reservation of shares or the issuance of Common Stock upon conversion as contemplated hereby.


The Investor and the Company understand that Pacific Stock Transfer Co. shall not be required to perform any issuances or transfers of shares if (a) the Company or request violates, or is in material violation of, any terms of the Transfer Agent Agreement, (b) such an issuance or transfer of shares is, in the opinion of the Transfer Agents legal counsel, as demonstrated by a written legal opinion addressed to the Company and the Investor, in violation of any state or federal securities law or regulation or (c) the issuance or transfer of shares is prohibited or stopped as required or directed by a valid court order.  If the Company informs you that there is a court order stopping issuances, then the Company agrees to provide Pacific Stock Transfer Co. with a copy of such court order immediately, and a legal opinion from counsel within three (3) business days addressing the matter





and, once such court order and legal opinion are received, you will not be obligated to perform any issuances related to the Debentures and this agreement. If the Company has an outstanding balance of fees owed to Pacific Stock Transfer Co. for any reason, the Investor understands Pacific Stock Transfer Co. will not be obligated to issue Common Stock to the Investor unless the Company or Investor first pays all fees owed to Pacific Stock Transfer Co., provided that if the Investor pays the fees of Pacific Stock Transfer Co. for the specific issuance of Common Stock to the Investor under a given Conversion Notice, then Pacific Stock Transfer Co. will issue such shares notwithstanding any unpaid fees owed it by the Company for other purposes.  The Company authorizes Pacific Stock Transfer Co. to inform the Investor of the amount and nature of any outstanding transfer agency fee balances owed by the Company if the Investor requests such information.


You are hereby authorized and directed to promptly disclose to the Investor without any additional confirmation from the Company, after Investors request from time to time, the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding, the total number of shares of Common Stock in the float, and the total number of shares of Common Stock that are authorized but unissued and unreserved.


The Company shall indemnify you and your officers, directors, principals, partners, agents and representatives, and hold each of them harmless from and against any and all loss, liability, damage, claim or expense (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of its attorneys) incurred by or asserted against you or any of them arising out of or in connection the instructions set forth herein, the performance of your duties hereunder and otherwise in respect hereof, including the costs and expenses of defending yourself or themselves against any claim or liability hereunder, except that the Company shall not be liable hereunder as to matters in respect of which it is determined that you have acted with gross negligence or in bad faith.  You shall have no liability to the Company in respect to any action taken or any failure to act in respect of this if such action was taken or omitted to be taken in good faith, and you shall be entitled to rely in this regard on the advice of counsel.  


The Board of Directors of the Company has approved the foregoing (irrevocable instructions) and does hereby extend the Companys irrevocable agreement to indemnify your firm and any successor transfer agent for all loss, liability or expense in carrying out the authority and direction herein contained on the terms herein set forth.


The Investor is intended to be, and is, a third party beneficiary hereof, and no amendment or modification to the instructions set forth herein may be made without the consent of the Investor.  

The Transfer Agent agrees that in the event of its resignation, then the Transfer Agent will provide at least fifteen (15) days prior written notice to the Company and the Investor.  The Transfer Agent also agrees that if the Company requests the Transfer Agent provide records pertaining to the register of Common Stock to any third party in what the Transfer Agent has reason to believe is in contemplation of replacing the Transfer Agent with another party, then the Transfer Agent shall notify the Investor within two (2) business days of the Transfer Agents receipt of such request.  


The Company agrees that in the event it seeks to replace the Transfer Agent, the Company shall provide at least fifteen (15) days prior written notice to the Transfer Agent and the Investor, and





the Company shall propose to the Investor a suitable replacement transfer agent and obtain the Investors written consent to the replacement of the Transfer Agent at least ten (10) days prior to the proposed effective date of the transition to the replacement transfer agent.  The Transfer Agent shall not transfer any records or documentation pertaining to the Common Stock to any purported successor transfer agent without the Investors prior written consent.   Any replacement transfer agent (whether approved by the Investor or appointed by the Company without the Investor prior consent in breach of the foregoing provisions) shall automatically be bound by this Letter Agreement as if a party hereto, and any such replacement transfer agent shall confirm in writing to the Investor within two (2) business days that it is bound by the terms and conditions of these irrevocable instructions.
