Director Independence

Our board of directors undertook its annual review of the independence of the directors and considered whether any director had a material relationship with us or our management that could compromise his ability to exercise independent judgment in carrying out his responsibilities. As a result of this review, the board of directors affirmatively determined that Messrs. Lewis, Gallo, Dias and Stol are "independent" as such term is used under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

During the fiscal year ended April 30, 2016, we had two independent directors on our Board. Of our Incoming Directors, at least two are currently anticipated to be independent. We evaluate independence by the standards for director independence established by applicable laws, rules and listing standards, including, without limitation, the standards for independent directors established by the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. and the SEC.

COMMITTEES OF THE COMPANY'S BOARD OF DIRECTORS

We are managed under the direction of our board of directors. Therefore, the selection of person or election to the board of directors was neither independently made nor negotiated at arm's length.

Our Board of Directors consists of four (4) individuals, two of whom are officers of the Company. Directors are elected to the Board of Directors for a one (1) year term or until the next shareholders meeting. There are no family relationships among any of our directors, officers or key employees

The Company's Board of Directors is currently working on establishing the following committees for the following purposes:

1) Audit Committee - Oversees the work of the Company's accounting and internal audit processes. The committee is directly responsible for the appointment, compensation, retention, and oversight of the Company's independent auditors.

2) Compensation Committee - The Compensation Committee stays informed as to market levels of compensation and, based on evaluations, recommends compensation levels and systems to the Board. The Compensation Committee recommends to the Board the compensation of the Chief Executive Officer and determines the compensation of the other executive officers.

3) Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee - The Governance and Nominating Committee is responsible for recommending to the Board individuals to be nominated as directors. The committee evaluates new candidates and current directors.

BOARD LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE

As of the date hereof, the Current Company Directors (Messrs. Gallo, Lewis, Dias and Stol) are our only directors.  Mr. Gallo and Mr. Lewis have resigned effective ten days after the mailing of this Section 14(f) Notice to Shareholders. Arturo "Jake" Sanchez and Lawrence Litowitz are appointed Directors effective ten days after the mailing of this Section 14(f) Notice to Shareholders. The Company has no lead independent director since the Company has no independent directors. The Board has determined that his leadership structure is appropriate for the Company given the Company's size and limited resources. Our Board recognizes that no single leadership model is right for all companies and at all times and that, depending on the circumstances, other leadership models, such as separating the role of Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, might be appropriate. Since the executive officers and the directors of the Company have historically been the same people, there is no separate oversight by the Board of the Company's risk oversight.

MEETINGS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

During its fiscal year ended April 30, 2016, the Board met telephonically to discuss action matters on several occasions and then executed written consents as to the actions. No compensation has been paid to the Company's directors for attendance at any meetings during the last fiscal year.

STOCKHOLDER COMMUNICATION WITH THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

There has not been any defined policy or procedure requirements for stockholders to submit recommendations or nomination for directors. The Board does not believe that a defined policy with regard to the consideration of candidates recommended by stockholders is necessary at this time because it believes that, given the limited scope of the Company' s operations, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until the Company's business operations are at a more advanced level. There are no specific, minimum qualifications that the Board believes must be met by a candidate recommended by the Board. Currently, the entire Board decides on nominees, on the recommendation of any member of the Board followed by the Board's review of the candidates' resumes and interview of candidates. Based on the information gathered, the Board then makes a decision on whether to recommend the candidates as nominees for director. The Company does not pay any fee to any third party or parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying or evaluating potential nominee.

-14-



The Company does not have any restrictions on shareholder nominations under its certificate of incorporation or bylaws. The only restrictions are those applicable generally under Colorado corporate law and the federal proxy rules, to the extent such rules are or become applicable. The Board will consider suggestions from individual shareholders, subject to evaluation of the person's merits. Stockholders may communicate nominee suggestions directly to the Board, accompanied by biographical details and a statement of support for the nominees. The suggested nominee must also provide a statement of consent to being considered for nomination. There are no formal criteria for nominees.

The Board has determined not to adopt a formal methodology for communications from shareholders.

Stockholders or other interested parties may communicate with the Company's directors by sending mail to 5805 State Bridge Road, Suite G-328, Duluth, Georgia 30097.

SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE
