THIS EXCHANGE AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is made as of the 31st day of May 2018, by and between, Sport Endurance, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), and the investor signatory hereto (the “Investor”).
WHEREAS, the Investor has previously acquired from the Company secured convertible notes, issued by the Company, as set forth on Schedule I (the “Notes”).
WHEREAS, the November 2017 Note had been convertible at $0.50 per share with standard price protection for lower priced issuances and should have been reset to $0.03 per share as a result of the issuance of warrants in March 2018 with a $0.01 exercise price.
WHEREAS, the Company has authorized a new series of convertible preferred stock of the Company designated as Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, $0.001 par value, the terms of which are set forth in the Certificate of Designations for such series of Series B Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designations”) in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A.
WHEREAS, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth herein, the Company and the Investor desire to enter into a transaction wherein the Company shall issue such aggregate number of shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B”) in exchange for each of the Notes as set forth on Schedule I (the “Exchange”).
NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
1. Exchange. The closing of the Exchange will occur on or before May 31, 2018 (or such later date as the parties hereto may agree) following the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth herein (such date, the “Closing Date”). On the Closing Date, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Investor shall, and the Company shall, pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), exchange the Notes for the Series B. At the Closing (as defined below), the following transactions shall occur (such transactions in this Section 1, the “Exchange”):
1.1. On the Closing Date, the Company shall issue the Series B to the Investor (or its designee). Promptly after the Closing Date the Company shall deliver a certificate evidencing the Series B to the Investor. On the Closing Date, the Investor shall be deemed for all corporate purposes to have become the holder of record of the Series B and shall have the right to convert the Series B, irrespective of the date the Company delivers the certificate evidencing the Series B to the Investor.
1.2. Upon receipt of the Series B in accordance with Section 1.1, all of the Investor’s rights under the Notes shall be extinguished (including, without limitation, the rights to receive, as applicable, any premium, make-whole amount, accrued and unpaid interest or dividends thereon or any other shares of Common Stock with respect thereto (whether upon in connection with a Fundamental Transaction, event of default or otherwise)).
1.3. The Company and the Investor shall execute and/or deliver such other documents and agreements as are customary and reasonably necessary to effectuate the Exchange, including UCC-3s.
1.4. If the Closing has not occurred on or prior to May 31, 2018, the Investor shall have the right, by delivery of written notice to the Company to terminate this Agreement (such date, the “Termination Date”). From the date hereof until the earlier of (x) the Closing Date (as defined below) and (y) the Termination Date, the Investor shall forbear from taking any actions with respect to the Notes not explicitly set forth herein, including, without limitation, conversions, exercises, redemptions, exchanges or delivery of written notice to the Company to require the conversion, exercise, redemption or exchange of any of the Notes.
1.5. It shall be a condition to the obligation of the Investor on the one hand and Company on the other hand, to consummate the Exchange contemplated hereunder that the other party’s representations and warranties contained herein are true and correct on the Closing Date with the same effect as though made on such date, unless waived in writing by the party to whom such representations and warranties are made.
1.6. At or before the Closing, the Investor shall deliver or cause to be delivered to Nason Yeager Gerson White & Lioce, P.A., as counsel to the Company, (i) the executed Agreement and (ii) other items required to effectuate the Exchange.

Upon conversion of the Series B, the Common Stock shall be freely tradable and may be sold under Rule 144 subject to the Company having filed all applicable Form 10-Qs and Form 10-K. The Company agrees to take all actions, including, without limitation, the issuance by its legal counsel of any necessary legal opinions, necessary to issue unrestricted Common Stock upon appropriate notice of sale under Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933 in connection with which Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series B issued in exchange for any Note, the Common Stock will be freely tradable without restriction and not containing any restrictive legend without the need for any action by the Investor other than as required by Rule 144(i).

5.1. Successors and Assigns. Except as otherwise provided herein, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and the respective successors and assigns of the parties. Nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to confer upon any party, other than the parties hereto or their respective successors and assigns, any rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement, except as expressly provided in this Agreement.
5.2. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Jury Trial. All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Agreement shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdictions) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdictions other than the State of New York.

Each of the parties hereby waives any objection to such exclusive jurisdiction and that such courts represent an inconvenient forum.

instance and either retroactively or prospectively), only with the written consent of the Company and the Investor.
5.5. Severability. If one or more provisions of this Agreement are held to be unenforceable under applicable law, such provision shall be excluded from this Agreement and the balance of the Agreement shall be interpreted as if such provision were so excluded and shall be enforceable in accordance with its terms so long as this Agreement as so modified continues to express, without material change, the original intentions of the parties as to the subject matter hereof and the prohibited nature, invalidity or unenforceability of the provision(s) in question does not substantially impair the respective expectations or reciprocal obligations of the parties or the practical realization of the benefits that would otherwise be conferred upon the parties. The parties will endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the prohibited, invalid or unenforceable provision(s) with a valid provision(s), the effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the prohibited, invalid or unenforceable provision(s).
5.6. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
5.7. Survival. The representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and the Investor contained herein shall survive the Closing and delivery of the Series B.
