If not converted sooner, the Debt is due on or before January 9, 2018. The Debt carries an interest rate of ten percent (10%). The Debt is convertible, at Chicago Venture’s option, into the Company’s common stock at $0.009 per share subject to adjustment as provided for in the Secured Promissory Notes attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference. As of the date of this report on Form 8-K, Chicago Venture has funded the entire amount of the Debt.
Chicago Venture’s obligation to fund the Debt was secured by Chicago Venture’s 60% interest in Typenex Medical, LLC, an Illinois corporation, as provided for in the Membership Pledge Agreement attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference.
