The Registrant intends to use the net proceeds for working capital purposes.

A total of 26,300 Units were issued in exchange for gross proceeds of $303,600, or $12.00 per Unit.

Emergent Financial Group, Inc. will also be issued a warrant to purchase three shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share for each Unit issued in this transaction.
