b.Mechanics of Optional Conversion. The effect the optional conversion of the shares of the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock in accordance with Section 4(a) hereof, any holder of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock shall make a written demand for such conversion (a “Conversion Demand”) upon the Corporation at its principal executive offices setting forth therein (i) the certificate or certificates representing such shares and (ii) the proposed date of such conversion, which shall be a business day not less than fifteen (15) nor more than thirty (30) days after the date of such Conversion Demand (the “Optional Conversion Date”).
