Attachment 1
The Company had no operations until late in 2006 when it entered into the “Buy-Here-Pay-Here” auto finance industry at that time. Thereafter in July 2007, the Company purchased assets to enter into the commercial and consumer lending business. Also in July 2007, the Company purchased assets to enter into the building restoration, facility (janitorial) care and construction management services industries. A reasonable estimate cannot be made because the Company did not gain sufficient access to its financial records and work papers, for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, in order to timely complete its Quarterly Report.
