When the company has qualified initial due diligence financial statements, we will provide initial, non-audited, summary information as part of press releases associated with the company.

"As for the changing Board composition, we elected three directors that replaced two of our directors. We also moved our Sr. Vice President of Finance & Controller into the position of Chief Financial Officer -- further information is available as part of 14C filings available at the http://www.sec.gov website. The business backgrounds of our new directors and officers are included in the information statements we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and mailed to the stockholders on the 16th day of November, 2012.
