CORPORATE ACTIONS

 

1. APPROVED A CERTIFICATE OF AMENDMENT TO THE COMPANY’S ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION TO INCREASE THE AUTHORIZED COMMON STOCK OF THE COMPANY BY TWO BILLION SEVEN HUNDRED SEVENTY FIVE MILLION (2,775,000,000) TO TEN BILLION (10,000,000,000) COMMON SHARES

 

The shareholders voted on and approved a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to increase its authorized common stock by two billion seven hundred seventy five million (2,775,000,000) shares to a total of ten billion (10,000,000) shares of common stock. The Company expects to file the proposed Certificate of Amendment, attached as Appendix A to this Information Statement, 20 days after the Definitive Information Statement is first mailed to our shareholders. The Certificate of Amendment will become effective when it has been accepted for filing by the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada.

 

When the Certificate of Amendment has become effective, the total number of shares of all classes that the Company will have authority to issue is ten billion twenty million (10,020,000,000) shares, of which ten billion (10,000,000,000) are shares of common stock, par value $0.00001 per share, and twenty million (20,000,000) are shares of preferred stock.

 

VOTING RIGHTS OF SHAREHOLDERS

 

The Nevada Business Corporations Act. Section 78.320 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, provides, in substance, that, unless a corporation’s Articles of Incorporation provides otherwise, shareholders may take an action without a meeting of shareholders and without prior notice if a consent or consents in writing that sets 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 that action at a shareholders meeting. The action becomes effective when written consents from holders of record of a majority of the outstanding voting power are executed and delivered to the Company.

 

The increase in the authorized number of Common Stock Shares will enable us to continue regular business operations, provide the ability to engage in potential debt conversions and support possible future financings, acquisitions, and/or such other corporate purposes as the Board determines in its discretion.

 

VOTING SECURITIES AND PRINCIPAL HOLDERS

 

As of August 31, 2023 (the “Record Date”), there were Common Stock Shares issued and outstanding, 3,350,000 shares of Series E Stock issued and outstanding, and 2,533 shares of Series F Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. Each share of Common Stock has one vote. There is no cumulative voting. However, under the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, the Series E Preferred Stock (the “Series E Shares”) has voting rights equal to twice the number of votes of all outstanding shares of capital stock; that is, the holders of Series E Shares will always have two-thirds (2/3rds) of the voting power of the Company.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT

 

At August 31, 2023, the Company had 7,039,806,793 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding. The following table sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership of our Common Stock as of August 31, 2023, and reflects:

 

  each of our executive officers;
     
  each of our directors;
     
  all of our directors and executive officers as a group; and
     
 

each shareholder known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock.

 

Information on beneficial ownership of securities is based upon a record list of our shareholders. Beneficial ownership has been determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3(d)(1) under the Exchange Act. Based on the information furnished to us, the Company believes that each of the persons and entities named in the table below has sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of Common Stock that he beneficially owns, subject to applicable community property laws, except as otherwise provided below.

   Amount and Nature of   Percent of 
Name  Beneficial Ownership (1)   Common Stock (2) 
           
Named Executive Officers and Directors:          
Steven Reinharz (3)   23,491,498,981    74.99%
Anthony Brenz   [0]   [0]
Mark Folmer   [0]    [0] 
           
All executive officers and directors as a group (3 persons)   [23,491,498,981]   74.99%
           
5% Shareholders:          
Steven Reinharz   23,491,498,981    74.99%

 

 

  (1) Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to securities. Beneficial ownership also includes shares of stock subject to options and warrants currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of the date of this table. In determining the percent of Common Stock owned by a person or entity as of the date of this proxy statement, (a) the numerator is the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the person, including shares which may be acquired within 60 days on exercise of warrants or options and conversion of convertible securities, and (b) the denominator is the sum of (i) the total shares of Common Stock outstanding on as of August 31 , 2023, and (ii) the total number of shares that the beneficial owner may acquire upon exercise of the derivative securities. Unless otherwise stated, each beneficial owner has sole power to vote and dispose of the shares.
     
  (2) Based on 7,039,806,793 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of August 31, 2023.
     
  (3) Mr. Reinharz holds (a) 2,450 shares of Series F Convertible Preferred Stock and (b) 3,350,000 shares of Series E Preferred Stock. If Mr. Reinharz converted the 2,450 shares of the Series F Convertible Preferred Stock, he would receive 23,491,498,981 shares of Common stock, which is reported in the table as if the conversion has occurred. In addition, the outstanding 3,350,000 shares of Series E Preferred Stock held by Mr. Reinharz have a vote equal to twice the number of votes of all outstanding shares of Common Stock. As a result, Mr. Reinharz holds 2/3rds of the voting power of all shareholders at any time a corporate action requires a shareholder vote.
