The Company said all six of the named individuals have expressed their support for the Supera technology licensed by the Company, on an exclusive basis, for healthcare industry applications. On an interim basis, the proposed new officers and directors intend to work through the Think Tank on the development of a new business plan focused on the healthcare industry and the development and successful new bridge financing plan, both of which are among the aforementioned conditions precedent to the contemplated restructuring and the assumption by the named individuals of their new positions. Consummation of the necessary bridge financing will facilitate the development of new card prototypes utilizing the licensed Supera technology, which is a prerequisite to the establishment of advantageous manufacturing relationships. Such financing would also enable the Company to engage qualified certified public accountants to bring all financial statements and SEC reporting current.
While the proposed new officers and directors are currently optimistic that they will be able to accomplish their initial objectives, as well as to bring on additional experienced board members and officers if deemed beneficial, there can be no assurance that they will be successful, or that the contemplated restructuring will occur.
