Debenture Obligations; Litigation:
In 2007, the Company raised $2.55 million under a Private Placement Memorandum. The debentures offered a 13% coupon and became due in June 2009. As of the due date, the Company was delinquent in paying both the principal and interest due to the debenture holders. A group of debenture holders filed a complaint against the Company in early 2010, seeking immediate payment of principal and interest. This group received a default judgment shortly thereafter. The total owed to all debenture holders, including interest as of September 30, 2010, is approximately $3,518,550.
Upon execution of the default judgment, the Company considered filing for protection under bankruptcy law. However, in order to best protect the debt holders and all shareholders the Company has, and is currently examining alternatives, including merging with another company, to address this default judgment. The Company is keeping the debenture holders appraised of the Company's efforts and expect their cooperation moving forward.
There is no other pending litigation against the Company.
Evaluating Alternative Industries:
The Company has elected to explore all merger candidates, including those outside of the entertainment industry. The decision to explore opportunities outside of the entertainment industry was due the recent economic downturn in the entertainment sector, and in turn the demise of many of the Company's investments in the entertainment sector. The Company is actively evaluating opportunities in all industries.
The Company will prepare and disseminate informational updates on its evaluation activities on a timely basis. This information will be publically available to all debenture holders, shareholders, and other interested parties.
Financial Audit of the Company's Financials:
It is the intention of the Company to bring its regulatory filings fully current within 90 days.
