Prior to being contacted by OTC Markets, the Company was neither aware of any such promotional activities, nor had it engaged or authorized such promotional activities by any third party. The Company conducted an inquiry and determined that neither the Company, nor any Company director, officer, beneficial owner of 10% or more of the Company’s common stock, nor third-party service provider, has been involved either directly or indirectly, with the authorization, creation, distribution, or payment for these third-party promotional emails. The Company is unaware of any effect the unauthorized promotional activities, including third-party promotional emails, may have had on recent trading of the Company’s common stock on the OTCQB Market.

All common shares held by Company officers, directors, third-party providers and beneficial owners of 10% or more of the Company’s common stock are restricted.

The Company learned from the information provided by OTC Markets that entities using the names “Stockwire News,” “007 Stock Chat,” and “SmallCap Firm” published emails distributed via the internet touting the Company and its business and recommending the purchase of the Company’s common stock.  The information provided to the Company by OTC Markets reflect a Monday, November 4, 2019 date for the unauthorized third-party email publications, and publicly available trading data reveals that the price of the Company’s common stock increased on Monday, November 4, 2019.   The Company has no direct or indirect knowledge of the promotional activities.  The statements in these publications did not come from, nor were they paid for, approved or otherwise authorized by the Company, its officers, directors or any beneficial owners of 10% or more of the Company’s common stock. The Company rejects and disclaims knowledge of all unauthorized third-party representations and opinions about the Company, wherever and by whatever means published, including  the content and opinions expressed by the entities using the names “Stockwire News,” “007 Stock Chat,” or “SmallCap Firm,” of and about which the Company neither sanctioned, paid for, or had prior knowledge.
