Share Article

Company’s Common Stock is Now DTC Eligible & DTC has Resumed Book-Entry Services.

Westport Energy Holdings Inc. (f/k/a Carbonics Capital Corporation) (OTC Pink Sheets: CICS) announced today that its name change to “Westport Energy Holdings Inc.”, its 1-for-5,000 reverse stock split and the reduction in its authorized common shares from 10,000,000,000 to 2,000,000,000, which actions were previously approved by the stockholders, became effective on November 29, 2012.

Based upon communications from FINRA, the Company expects the corporate actions to be effective in the market on Monday, December 3, 2012. Commencing on the effective date, the Company’s common shares will trade under the ticker symbol “CICSD” for twenty (20) business days, after which the “D” will be removed from the ticker symbol. The Company is also working with FINRA to obtain a new ticker symbol that will be more consistent with the Company’s new name. The Company expects the new ticker to become effective within 30-45 days after the effective date.

With the completion of the reverse split, the Company currently has 575,862 common shares outstanding, which shares are now also DTC eligible. After extensive discussions with DTC led by the Company’s attorney, Laura Anthony of Legal & Compliance, LLC (http://www.legalandcompliance.com), DTC agreed to lift a “Global Lock” on the Company’s common stock that previously caused a suspension of depository and book-entry transfer services at DTC. As a result of the lifting of the “Global Lock,” DTC has now resumed full book entry services for the Company’s common stock.
