The bonds pay interest semiannually each December 31 and June 30 and are due December 31, 2013. Each $1,000 bond is convertible into 15 shares of the Kalanda Corporation’s $10 par common stock.

On July 1, 2011, Taylor exchanged all of the bonds for Kalanda common stock. At that time the market value of the common stock was $72 per share.
