No payments will be due in any period in which the Founder makes less than $40,000 in Founder Earnings for up to a period of 60 months, provided, however, that utilization of this grace period shall increase the repayment period by the amount of months in which the Founder did not make any payments, and shall eliminate the Founder’s ability to cease payments after meeting the Repayment Cap.
