Re: Letter of Intent for Orbital Tracking Corp. Proposed Public Offering
Dear Board of Directors,
The undersigned, ViewTrade Securities Inc. (“ViewTrade”), has recently discussed with you a proposal pursuant to which Orbital Tracking Corp., (the “Company”), wishes to effectuate a public offering of its securities.
In the course of such discussions, the Company has either submitted to us or will submit to ViewTrade, among other things, recent audited and unaudited financial statements which the Company represents as fairly reflecting the financial condition of the Company and the results of its operations for the periods mentioned therein, and you have given us information and projections relating to the capabilities of the Company.
Based upon the foregoing, and the representations which you and the Company have made to us with regard to the present and proposed business activities of the Company, as well as the Company’s operations and financial condition, and our appraisal of the general conditions of the securities markets, this Letter of Intent is written to you to express the interest of the undersigned, either acting as Underwriter or as the representative of several underwriters (“Representative”), to underwrite an offering of the Company’s securities in accordance with the basic terms and conditions hereinafter set forth below. The Representative’s obligation to underwrite such an offering is subject to: (i) satisfactory completion of our due diligence examination of the Company; (ii) execution of a definitive underwriting agreement; (iii) mutual agreement on the valuation and pricing of the securities to be offered; (iv) market conditions on the effective date of the offering and (v) approval of all matters relating to the offering by our counsel.
The following terms, as used in this Letter of Intent, shall have the meanings set forth below:
“Commission” shall mean the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“Effective Date” shall mean the initial date of effectiveness of the Company’s Registration Statement for the public offering of securities contemplated hereby.

It is anticipated that the Offering contemplated herein will result in gross proceeds of approximately five million dollars ($5,000,000) to seven million dollars ($7,000,000) and that the Per Share Public Offering Price will be determined by mutual agreement of the Company and the Representative.
“Registration Statement” shall mean the registration statement relating to the public offering of the Company’s securities which are the subject of this Letter of Intent.
“Representative Warrants” shall mean those warrants to be sold by the Company to the Representative and/or persons related to the Representative for nominal consideration of $.0001, each such warrant evidencing the right to purchase one share of the Securities Being Offered at an exercise price equal to 110% of the Public Offering Price and which shall be exercisable for a period of five years. The number of Representative Warrants shall be equal to 8% of the total number of Securities sold in the offering.
