Exhibit 1

FORM OF PROMISSORY NOTE

 

Principal Amount $___________

Issue Date:

 

Global Clean Solutions, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (hereinafter referred to as “Borrower”) for value received, promises to pay to the order of PPE Brickell Supplies, LLC, a Florida limited liability company and their respective successors and assigns (“Lender”), at , or at such other place as Lender may designate, $___________________ as an Advance (as defined below) pursuant to that certain Secured Line of Credit Agreement effective as of May 20, 2020, and in connection with the notice of Advance attached hereto between Lender and Borrower (the “Agreement”). Any capitalized term not specifically defined herein, has the same definition as supplied in the Agreement.

 

The unpaid principal amount of this Promissory Note (the “Note”) shall bear interest from the date the funds hereunder are distributed to Borrower until repaid, in full, at the Interest Rate as defined and set forth in the Agreement. After the Maturity Date (as defined below), whether maturity occurs by acceleration, demand or otherwise, the accrued interest and principal shall be payable immediately. Any principal or interest which remains unpaid when due shall thereafter accrue interest at the rate set forth in Article 9.1 of the Agreement.

 

Maturity Date. Any principal and accrued but unpaid interest under this Note shall be due (the “Maturity Date”) upon the earlier of (i) within three (3) Banking Days after payment is received by the Borrower for the order fulfilled by the Advance evidenced by this Note, with any partial payments being applied pro-rata to amounts due hereunder and the rest of the balance remaining outstanding being subject to (ii) or (iii) of this section; (ii) any other default under Section 8.1(a) of the Agreement; or (iii) six (6) months from the receipt of the Advance evidenced by this Note by the Borrower from the Lender. Lender may, in its sole discretion, extend the Maturity Date of this Note via written communication to the Borrower detailing the terms of the extension.

 

In the event of default under section 8.1(a) of the Agreement, the Lender shall have the right to convert all immediately due and payable principal and interest into shares of common stock of Edison Nation, Inc. (“Guarantor”) subject to the terms and conditions of that certain Security Agreement (the “Security Agreement”) between Lender and Guarantor.

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary or otherwise limiting any remedy in Security Agreement, the conversion of principal and interest shall be upon the following terms:

 

(a) Calculation of Conversion Price. Subject to the adjustments described herein, the conversion price (the “Conversion Price”) shall equal $2.05 (subject to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by the Guarantor relating to the Guarantor’s securities or the securities of any subsidiary of the Borrower, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar events. The Guarantor shall be responsible for the fees of its transfer agent and all DTC fees associated with any such issuance. Lender shall be entitled to add to the principal amount of the Note $750.00 for each conversion to cover Lender’s deposit fees associated with each Notice of Conversion.

 

   

 

 

(b) The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the portion of this Note shall not result in beneficial ownership by the Lender and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock. For purposes of the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and Regulations 13D-G thereunder, except as otherwise provided in clause (1) of such proviso. The beneficial ownership limitations on conversion as set forth in the section may NOT be waived by the Lender.

 

(c) Upon conversion of any amounts due under this Note, Lender shall not sell more than twenty percent (20%) of the average volume of the Guarantor’s shares for previous ten (10) trading days prior to conversion.

 

(d) True-Up. On the date that is twenty (20) Trading Days (a “True-Up Date”) from each date that the Shares are delivered by Guarantor to Lender, there shall be a true-up where Guarantor shall deliver to Lender additional shares (“True-Up Shares”) if the net proceeds (i.e. net of transaction fees, expenses, costs, etc.) from the sale of the Shares by Lender is less than the amount due under the conversion. In such event, Borrower shall deliver to Lender within three (3) Trading Days of the True-Up Date (the “True-Up Share Delivery Date”) a number of True-Up Shares equal to the difference between the amount due under the conversion notice and the proceeds actually realized from the sale of the Shares issued thereunder. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Redemption Conversion Price as of the True-Up Date is higher than the Redemption Conversion Price set forth in the applicable Redemption Notice, then Borrower shall have no obligation to deliver True-Up Shares to Lender, nor shall Lender have any obligation to return any excess Redemption Conversion Shares to Borrower under any circumstance. For the convenience of Borrower only, Lender may, in its sole discretion, deliver to Borrower a notice informing Borrower of the number of True-Up Shares it is obligated to deliver to Lender as of any given True-Up Date, provided that if Lender does not deliver any such notice, Borrower shall not be relieved of its obligation to deliver True-Up Shares pursuant to this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Borrower fails to deliver any required True-Up Shares on or before any applicable True-Up Share Delivery Date, then in such event the Outstanding Balance of this Note will automatically increase by $2,000 per day until the True-Up shares are delivered (under Lender’s and Borrower’s expectations that any such increase will tack back to the Purchase Price Date for purposes of determining the holding period under Rule 144).

 

Payments of both principal and interest shall be made in lawful money of the United States of America in immediately available funds.

 

Borrower waives presentment, demand, notice of dishonor and nonpayment or protest to this Note and all defenses on the ground of any extension of time or renewal.

 

This Note is made under and governed by the laws of the State of Nevada.

 

   

 

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Promissory Note to be executed in duplicate by their duly authorized representatives, effective as of the date first above written
