Section 1. - Registrant's Business and Operations
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
(1) On April 7, 2005, the registrant entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement ("Agreement") with Birchington Investments Limited, a corporation organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands. The Agreement was subject to a number of material conditions precedent before the obligations of any of the parties under the Agreement matured. The last of the conditions precedent was satisfied on June 8 2005, at which time the Agreement became a binding and enforceable obligation of the parties thereto. There is no material relationship between the registrant and Birchington other then the obligations created by the Agreement.
(2) In the Agreement, Birchington purchased 5,850,000 shares of the restricted Common Stock of the registrant in exchange for 5,850,000 Ordinary Shares of Birchington, calculated on the basis of a $1.00 US per share valuation. Birchington’s
Ordinary Shares were recently listed on the Irish Stock Exchange in Dublin, Ireland. Birchington is a newly formed company which was formed for the specific purpose of investing in United States small cap companies which Birchington believes to have long term growth potential. Registrant will hold the Birchington shares in Bandstore Limited, a newly formed British corporation, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of registrant.
Birchington has entered into a "lock-up" agreement with registrant pursuant to which Birchington has agreed not to sell, transfer, or assign the shares of registrant's Common Stock which it received as a result of this transaction, for a period of one year from the Closing date.
An additional 1,755,000 shares of registrant’s Common Stock will be held in escrow for one year following the Closing. This is thirty percent (30%) of the number of shares being purchased by Birchington. In the event that the average of the ten (10) closing bid prices per share during the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding the one year anniversary date of the closing, is less than the per share market price of the registrant’s Common Stock as of the date of the Closing ($1.00), Birchington shall be entitled to purchase out of escrow a percentage of the escrowed shares equal to the percentage of such decline for a price of $.01 per share. The escrowed remaining shares, if any, will be returned to registrant. The escrow agent is Gottbetter and Partners, a New York law firm.
Section 3 - Securities and Trading Markets
(a) The registrant issued and sold five million eight hundred fifty thousand (5,850,000) shares of registrant's Common Stock, par value $.001 (the "Shares") to Birchington on June 8, 2005. The total offering price for the Shares was $1.00 per share for a total purchase price of $5,850,000 paid in 5,850,000 Birchington Ordinary Shares. The Shares were sold pursuant to an exemption from registration under Regulation S of the Securities Act.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
