4.4.2   The Holder's conversion right may be exercised at any time and from time to time but prior to payment in full of the principal amount of the accrued interest on this Note.  Conversion rights will expire at the close of business on the Business Day prior to the Maturity Date or redemption date of this Note.

4.4.3   The Holder may exercise the right to convert all or any portion of the principal amount and accrued Interest on this Note by delivery of (i) this Note and (ii) a completed Conversion Notice in the form attached as Exhibit A on a Business Day to the Company's principal executive offices.  Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made immediately prior to the close of business on the Business Day of such delivery a conversion notice (the "Conversion Date"), and the Holder shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of the shares of Common Stock into which this Note is converted as of such date.
4.4.4   Upon conversion of the entire principal amount and accrued Interest of this Note and the delivery of shares of Common Stock upon conversion of this Note, except as otherwise provided in Paragraph 20, "Representations and Warranties to Survive Closing," the Company shall be forever released from all of its obligations and liabilities under this Note.
