Pursuant to the September 18, 2019 majority consent of stockholders in lieu of an annual meeting (See Item 5.07 below), the Registrant amended its Articles of Incorporation effective as of October 4, 2019.

 

Amended Articles of Incorporation

Seris C Convertible Preferred Stock

 

Pursuant to the September 18, 2019 majority consent of stockholders in lieu of an annual meeting (including the consent of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stockholders), the Registrant filed a Certificate of Designation with the Nevada Secretary of State designating 5,500,000 shares of its authorized preferred stock as Series C Convertible Preferred Stock. The Registrant is awaiting the file stamped Certificate of Designation from the Nevada Secretary of State. The rights and preferences of such preferred stock are as follows:

The number of shares constituting the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock shall be 5,500,000. Such number of shares may be increased or decreased by resolution of the Board; provided, that no decrease shall reduce the number of shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock to a number less than the number of shares then outstanding plus the number of shares reserved for issuance upon the exercise of outstanding options, rights or warrants or upon the conversion of any outstanding securities issued by the Company convertible into Series C Convertible Preferred Stock.

1. DESIGNATION. The Shares are designated as the Company’s Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Shares”).

 

2. CONVERSION. The holders of the Shares shall have conversion rights as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

(a)       Right to Convert. Each Share shall be convertible into shares of the Company’s Common Stock at a price per share of $0.01 (1 Share converts into 100 shares of Common Stock) (the “Conversion Price”), at the option of the holder thereof, at any time following the date of issuance of such Share and on or prior to the fifth (5th) day prior to a redemption Date, if any, as may have been fixed in any redemption notice with respect to the Shares, at the office of this Company or any transfer agent for such stock.

 

(b)       Mechanics of Conversion. Before any holder of Shares shall be entitled to convert the same into shares of Common Stock, he shall surrender the certificate or certificates therefor, duly endorsed, at the office of this Company or of any transfer agent for the Shares, and shall give written notice to this Company at its principal corporate office, of the election to convert the same and shall state therein the name or names in which the certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock are to be issued. This Company shall, as soon as practicable thereafter, issue and deliver at such office to such holder of Shares, or to the nominee or nominees of such holder, a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Common Stock to which such holder shall be entitled as aforesaid. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made immediately prior to the close of business on the date of such surrender of the shares of Shares to be converted, and the person or persons entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock as of such date.

 

(d)       No Impairment. This Company will not, by amendment of its Articles of incorporation or through any reorganization, recapitalization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by this Company, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this section and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the Conversion Rights of the holders of the Shares against impairment.

 

(e)       Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. This Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Shares, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Shares; and if at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Shares, in addition to such other remedies as shall be available to the holder of such Shares, this Company will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in best efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to the Company’s Certificate of incorporation.

 

(f)       Notice. Any notice required by the provisions of this section to be given to the holders of Shares shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of this Company.

 

3. OTHER RIGHTS. Except as otherwise stated herein, there are no other rights, privileges, or preferences attendant or relating to in any way the Shares, including by way of illustration but not limitation, those concerning dividend, ranking, other conversion, other redemption, participation, or anti-dilution rights or preferences.

 

4. Voting Rights. The holder of each Share shall not have any voting rights, except in the case of voting on a change in the preferences of Shares.

(b)       alter or change the rights, preferences or privileges of the Shares so as to affect adversely the Shares;

 

(c)       increase or decrease (other than by redemption or conversion) the total number of authorized shares of preferred stock;

 

(d)       authorize or issue, or obligate itself to issue, any other equity security, including any other security convertible into or exercisable for any equity security (i) having a preference over, or being on a parity with, the Shares with respect to upon liquidation, or (ii) having rights similar to any of the rights of the Preferred Stock; or

Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

 

On September 18, 2019, the following consenting Voting Stockholders owning a total of 1,000,000 shares of the Registrant’s Series B Preferred stock delivered the executed written consent authorizing the amendment to the Articles of Incorporation, election of directors and approving the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (collectively the “Actions”). As of September 18, 2019, the Registrant had 240,774,150 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote, which for voting purposes are entitled to one vote per share. Each share of Series B Preferred stock is entitled to cast five hundred (500) votes for each share held of the Series B Preferred stock on all matters presented to the stockholders of the Registrant for stockholder vote, thereby allowing such Series B Preferred stock to cast votes totaling 500,000,000 million shares of common stock (which exceeds the number of shares of common stock outstanding by approximately 208%). The consenting Voting Stockholders’ names, affiliation with the Company and holdings are as follows:

 

Name   Affiliation with the Company   Number of Voting Shares   % of Total
Voting Shares
Gary J. Grieco   Chairman of the Board, President     250,000,000       104 %
Francis J. Read   Director, COO     250,000,000       104 %
Total         500,000,000       208 %

 

Pursuant to the Registrant’s existing Bylaws and the NRS, the holders of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock representing a majority of our voting power may approve and authorize the Actions by written consent as if such Actions were undertaken at a duly called and held meeting of stockholders.  In order to significantly reduce the costs and management time involved in soliciting and obtaining proxies to approve the Actions, and in order to effectuate the Actions as early as possible, the Board elected to utilize, and did in fact obtain, the written consent of the voting stockholders.  The written consent satisfies the stockholder approval requirement for the Actions.  Accordingly, under the NRS and the Bylaws, no other approval by the Board or stockholders of the Registrant is required in order to effect the Actions.
