VOTE REQUIRED; MANNER OF APPROVAL


Approval to amend and restate the current Articles of Incorporation of the Company under the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the Company.


Section 78.320 of the NRS provides, in substance, that, unless the Company’s Articles of Incorporation provides otherwise, stockholders may take action without a meeting of stockholders and without prior notice if a consent or consents in writing, setting forth the action so taken, is signed by the holders of outstanding voting stock holding not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to approve such action at a stockholders meeting. Under the applicable provisions of the NRS, this action is effective when written consents from holders of record of a majority of the outstanding voting power are executed and delivered to the Company.


In accordance with the NRS, the affirmative vote on the Corporate Action of at least a majority of the outstanding voting power has been obtained. As a result, no vote or proxy is required by the stockholders to approve the Corporate Action.


Under Rule 14c-2 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Act”), the Corporate Action cannot take effect prior to the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Nevada Secretary of State approximately twenty (20) days after the Mailing Date, which is anticipated to be on or about _________________.


Further, we will notify the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (” FINRA “) by filing the Issuer Company Related Action Notification Form of the Reverse Stock Split. Our failure to provide such notice may constitute fraud under Section 10 of the Exchange Act.

As of the record date, there were 3,851,686,859 shares of our Common Stock issued and outstanding, 4,350,000 shares of Series E Preferred Stock issued and outstanding and 3,450 shares of Series F Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. The total aggregate of all of the shares of Series E Preferred Stock as a group are entitled to take action by written consent or vote equal to 66.7% of the total voting shares outstanding. For the approval of the Corporate Action, the Company received written consents from 2 stockholders of the Company together holding 66.7% of the voting power of the Company.

PROPOSAL NUMBER ONE


APPROVAL OF THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT


GENERAL


The Board approved a resolution to effectuate a 10,000:1 reverse stock split. Under this reverse stock split each 10,000 shares of our Common Stock will be automatically converted into 1 share of Common Stock. To avoid the issuance of fractional shares of Common Stock, the Company will issue an additional share to all holders of fractional shares.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT WILL NOT CHANGE YOUR PROPORTIONATE EQUITY INTEREST IN THE COMPANY, EXCEPT AS MAY RESULT FROM THE ISSUANCE OR CANCELLATION OF SHARES PURSUANT TO THE FRACTIONAL SHARES.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT WILL HAVE THE EFFECT OF SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASING THE NUMBER OF SHARES THE COMPANY WILL BE ABLE TO ISSUE TO NEW OR EXISTING SHAREHOLDERS BECAUSE THE NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED SHARES WILL REMAIN THE SAME WHILE THE NUMBER OF SHARES ISSUED AND OUTSTANDING WILL BE REDUCED 10,000-FOLD.


PURPOSE AND MATERIAL EFFECTS OF THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT


The Board of Directors believe that, among other reasons, the number of outstanding shares of our Common Stock has made it difficult to attract new investors and potential business candidates.  As a result, the Board of Directors has proposed the Reverse Stock Split as one method to attract business opportunities in the Company.


When a company engages in a reverse stock split, it substitutes one share of stock for a predetermined amount of shares of stock. It does not increase the market capitalization of the company.


We believe that the Reverse Stock Split may improve the price level of our Common Stock and that the higher share price could help generate interest in the Company among investors and other business opportunities. However, the effect of the Reverse Stock Split upon the market price for our Common Stock cannot be predicted, and the history of similar stock split combinations for companies in like circumstances is varied. There can be no assurance that the market price per share of our Common Stock after the Reverse Stock Split will rise in proportion to the reduction in the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding resulting from the reverse split. The market price of our Common Stock may also be based on our performance and other factors, some of which may be unrelated to the number of shares outstanding.


The Reverse Stock Split will affect all of our stockholders uniformly and will not affect any stockholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company or proportionate voting power, except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split results in any of our stockholders owning a fractional share. All stockholders holding a fractional share shall be issued an additional share. The principal effect of the Reverse Stock Split will be that the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding will be reduced from 3,851,686,859 shares of Common Stock as of the Record Date to approximately 385,169 shares (depending on the number of fractional shares that are issued or cancelled). The Reverse Stock Split will not affect the shares of Series E Preferred Stock of which 4,350,000 are issued and outstanding and/or the shares of Series F Preferred Stock of which 3,450 are issued and outstanding and/or the shares of Series G Preferred Stock, of which no shares are issued and outstanding. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock and its par value will not be affected.


- 4 -



PLANS, PROPOSALS OR ARRANGEMENTS TO ISSUE NEWLY AVAILABLE SHARES OF COMMON STOCK


The main purpose of completing this Reverse Stock Split is to increase the amount of shares available in order to have the ability to issue shares and attract investors. The Company has not entered into any agreements whereby it has agreed to issue the newly available shares.


FRACTIONAL SHARES


We will not issue fractional certificates for post- Reverse Stock Split shares in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, an additional share shall be issued to all holders of a fractional share. To the extent any holders of pre- Reverse Stock Split shares are entitled to fractional shares as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the Company will issue an additional share to all holders of fractional shares.


STOCKHOLDERS SHOULD NOT DESTROY ANY STOCK CERTIFICATE AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT ANY CERTIFICATES WITHOUT BEING ASKED TO DO SO.


FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES


The following discussion is a summary of certain United States federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split to us and stockholders of our common stock. It does not purport to be a complete discussion of all of the possible federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split and is included for general information only. This discussion is based on laws, regulations, rulings and decisions in effect on the date hereof, all of which are subject to change (possibly with retroactive effect) and to differing interpretations. This discussion only applies to stockholders that are U.S. persons as defined in the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and does not describe all of the tax consequences that may be relevant to a stockholder in light of his particular circumstances or to stockholders subject to special rules (such as dealers in securities, financial institutions, insurance companies, tax-exempt organizations, foreign individuals and entities, and persons who acquired their common stock as compensation).  In addition, this summary is limited to stockholders that hold their common stock as capital assets. This discussion also does not address any tax consequences arising under the laws of any state, local or foreign jurisdiction or alternative minimum tax consequences. The tax treatment of each stockholder may vary depending upon the particular facts and circumstances of such stockholder.


We have not sought and will not seek an opinion of counsel or a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service regarding the federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split. We believe, however, that because the Reverse Stock Split is not part of a plan to periodically increase or decrease any stockholder’s proportionate interest in the assets or earnings and profits of our company, the Reverse Stock Split should have the federal income tax effects described below:


The exchange of pre-split shares for post-split shares should not result in recognition of gain or loss for federal income tax purposes.

The stockholder’s aggregate tax basis in the post-split shares would equal that stockholder’s aggregate tax basis in the pre-split shares.

The stockholder’s holding period for the post-split shares will include such stockholder’s holding period for the pre-split shares.

Provided that a stockholder held the pre-split shares as a capital asset, the post-split shares received in exchange therefor would also be held as a capital asset.


- 5 -



We believe that our Company should not recognize gain or loss as a result of the Reverse Stock Split.  Our view regarding the tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split is not binding on the Internal Revenue Service or the courts. We urge all stockholders to consult their own tax advisers to determine the particular federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences to each of them of the Reverse Stock Split.


TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH TREASURY DEPARTMENT CIRCULAR 230, STOCKHOLDERS ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED THAT: (A) ANY DISCUSSION OF FEDERAL TAX ISSUES IN THIS INFORMATION STATEMENT IS NOT INTENDED OR WRITTEN TO BE RELIED UPON, AND CANNOT BE RELIED UPON BY STOCKHOLDERS FOR THE PURPOSE OF AVOIDING PENALTIES THAT MAY BE IMPOSED ON STOCKHOLDERS UNDER THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE; (B) SUCH DISCUSSION IS INCLUDED HEREIN BY THE COMPANY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROMOTION OR MARKETING (WITHIN THE MEANING OF CIRCULAR 230) BY THE COMPANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS OR MATTERS ADDRESSED HEREIN; AND (C) STOCKHOLDERS SHOULD SEEK ADVICE BASED ON THEIR PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCES FROM AN INDEPENDENT TAX ADVISOR.


Stockholders of record of the Common Stock as of the Record Date shall have their total shares reduced on the basis of one post-split share of Common Stock for every 10,000 pre-split shares outstanding.


This action has been approved by the Board and the written consents of the holders of the majority of the outstanding voting capital stock of the Company.


AMENDED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION


Upon the effectiveness and on the date that is twenty (20) days following the mailing of this Information Statement, the Board of Directors shall have the Company’s Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation filed with the State of Nevada in order to effect the Reverse Stock Split.


WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR A PROXY AND YOU ARE REQUESTED NOT TO SEND US A PROXY.


Corporation Action and Effective Time


The Corporate Action will become effective on the date that we file the Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. We intend to file the Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the “Amendment”) promptly after the twentieth (20th) day following the date on which this Information Statement is mailed to the Stockholders.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will notify FINRA of the intended Corporate Action by filing the Issuer Company Related Action Notification Form. Our failure to provide such notice may constitute fraud under Section 10 of the Exchange Act.


INTEREST OF CERTAIN PERSONS IN OR IN OPPOSITION TO THE MATTERS TO BE ACTED UPON


No director, executive officer, associate of any officer or director or executive officer, or any other person has any interest, direct or indirect, by security holdings or otherwise, in the amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation referenced herein which is not shared by the majority of the stockholders.

OTHER MATTERS 


If you and others who share your mailing address own Common Stock in street name, meaning through bank or brokerage accounts, you may have received a notice that your household will receive only one annual report and proxy statement from each company whose stock is held in such accounts.

Unless you responded that you did not want to participate in householding, you were deemed to have consented to it, and a single copy of this Information Statement has been sent to your address. Each stockholder will continue to receive a separate notice.

On the effective date of this Certificate of Amendment, the Corporation shall effect a reverse stock split in its issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock so that the shares currently issued and outstanding shall be a reverse split on a 10,000:1 basis, and all pre-split certificates held by stockholders shall be adjusted on the Corporation’s books to reflect the 10,000:1 reverse stock split, such that each 10,000 shares of Common Stock, $0.00001 par value, held by them prior to the reverse stock split shall be recorded as one share of the Corporation’s post-split Common Stock, $0.00001 par value. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split and any fractional interest will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. The reverse stock split will not result in any modification of the rights of stockholders and will have no effect on the stockholders’ equity in the Corporation except for a transfer from stated capital to additional paid-in capital.
