The actions to be taken pursuant to the written consent shall be taken on or about May 27, 2004, 20 days after the mailing of this information statement. THIS IS NOT A NOTICE OF A SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS AND NO STOCKHOLDER MEETING WILL BE HELD TO CONSIDER ANY MATTER WHICH WILL BE DESCRIBED HEREIN. By order of the Board of Directors, /s/ Reginald Hall Reginald Hall Chairman of the Board NOTICE OF ACTION TO BE TAKEN PURSUANT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF MAJORITY STOCKHOLDERS IN LIEU OF A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE STOCKHOLDERS, DATED MAY 18, 2004 To Our Stockholders: Notice is hereby GIVEN that the following action will be taken pursuant to the written consent of a majority of stockholders dated May 18, 2004, in lieu of a special meeting of the stockholders. Such action will be taken on or about May 27, 2004; 1. The Company's Articles of Incorporation, as restated, will be amended as follows: (a) To increase the numbers of authorized shares of no par value stock, (the "Common Stock), of the company from 40,000,000 to 100,000,000 shares, resulting in the number of shares of all classes of capital stock which the Company shall have the authority to issue shall be set at 110,000,000 shares consisting of 10,000,000 shares of no par value preferred stock and 100,000,000 shares of no par value common stock; and, (b) To reverse split the 25,056,000 issued shares of no par value common stock of the Company on a 1for 200 basis (with a minimum of 2,000 post-split shares for stockholders currently owning 2,000 or more shares and no split for stockholders currently owning fewer than 2,000 shares), 2. To change the name of the Company to Advanced Integrated Management Services, Inc. OUTSTANDING SHARES AND VOTING RIGHTS As of the record Date, the Company's authorized capitalization consisted of 10,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock of which none were issued and 40,000,000 shares of Common Stock, of which 25,056,000 shares were issued and outstanding. Holders of Common Stock of the Company have no preemptive rights to acquire or subscribe to any of the additional shares of Common Stock. Each share of Common Stock entitles its holder to one vote on each matter submitted to the stockholders. However, because stockholders holding 62% of the voting rights of all outstanding shares of capital stock as of May 18, 2004 have voted in favor of the foregoing proposals by resolution dated May 18, 2004; and having sufficient voting power to approve such proposals through their ownership of capital stock, no other stockholder consents will be solicited in connection with this Information Statement. Pursuant to Rule 14c-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the proposals will not be adopted until a date at least 20 days after the date on which this Information statement has been mailed to the stockholders. The company anticipates that the actions contemplated herein will be effected on or about the close of business on May 27, 2004. The Company has asked brokers and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries to forward this Information Statement to the beneficial owners of the Common Stock held of record by such persons and will reimburse such persons for out-of-pocket expenses incurred in forwarding such material. This Information Statement will serve as written notice to stockholders pursuant to Section 16-10a-704 of the Utah Revised Business Corporation Act. AMENDMENT TO THE ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION On May 18, 2004, the majority stockholders of the Company approved an amendment to the Company's Articles of Incorporation, as restated, to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 40,000,000 to 100,000,000. The Company currently has authorized capital stock of 10,000,000 no par value shares of preferred stock (none issued) and 40,000,000 no par value shares of common stock of which 25,056,000 are issued and outstanding as of the Record Date. The resulting increase in authorized capital will allow the Company to proceed with the acquisition of Advanced Integrated Management Services, Inc. (AIMSI) as proposed by Letter of Intent signed with the owner on April 28, 2004 and will provide the Company greater flexibility with respect to the Company's capital structure for such purposes as additional equity financing, and stock based acquisitions. INCREASE IN AUTHORIZED COMMON STOCK The terms of the additional shares of Common Stock will be identical to those of the currently outstanding shares of Common Stock. However, because holders of Common stock have no preemptive rights to purchase or subscribe for any unissued stock of the Company, the issuance of additional shares of Common Stock will reduce the current stockholders; percentage ownership interest in the total outstanding shares of common Stock. This amendment and the creation of additional shares of authorized Common Stock will reduce the number of issued shares from 25,056,000 shares to approximately 260,000 shares. The relative rights and limitations of the shares of Common Stock will remain unchanged under this amendment. As of the Record Date, a total of 25,056,000 shares of the Company's currently authorized 40,000,000 shares of Common stock are issued and outstanding. The increase in the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock would enable the Company, without further stockholder approval, to issue shares from time to time as may be required for proper business purposes, such as raising additional capital for ongoing operations, business and asset acquisitions, stock splits and dividends, present and future employee benefit programs and other corporate purposes. The proposed increase in the authorized number of shares of Common Stock could have a number of effects on the Company's stockholders depending upon the exact nature and circumstances of any actual issuances of authorized but unissued shares. The increase could have an anti-takeover effect, in that additional shares could be issued (within the limits imposed by applicable law) in one or more transactions that could make a change in control or takeover of the Company more difficult. For example, additional shares could be issued by the Company so as to dilute the stock ownership or voting rights of persons seeking to obtain control of the Company. Similarly, the issuance of additional shares to certain persons allied with the Company's management could have the effect of making it more difficult to remove the Company's current management by diluting the stock ownership or voting rights of persons seeking to cause such removal. The Board of Directors is not aware of any attempt, or contemplated attempt, to acquire control of the Company, and this proposal is not being presented with the intent that it be utilized as a type of anti-takeover device. Except for the following, there are currently no plans, arrangements, commitments or understandings for the issuance of the additional shares of Common Stock which are proposed to be authorized: The acquisition of AIMSI will be paid for by the issuance of 8,640,000 restricted common shares of which 4,800,000 will be escrowed and returned to treasury for cancellation if the market price of the Company's common shares exceeds $5.00 per Share within one year at closing. The agreement with the owner of AIMSI also calls for the issuance of 1,800,000 common shares for conversion of notes totaling $60,000 held by a major shareholder of the company and two affiliates. 1,200,000 of the notes will be escrowed and returned to treasury for cancellation if the market price of the Company's common shares exceeds $5.00 per share within one year of closing.
