Consummation of the Merger will be upon the following terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein.
   
(a) Corporate Existence.  Commencing at the Effective Time of the Merger, the separate corporate existence of STHC will cease and the Surviving Corporation will continue its corporate existence as a Nevada corporation: and
 
(i)
The Surviving Corporation will thereupon and thereafter possess all rights, privileges and powers of each of the Corporations;
(ii)
all debts due to either STHC or its subsidiaries, on whatever account, all causes in action and all other things belonging to either of the STHC or its subsidiaries, will, except as otherwise set forth herein, be taken and deemed to be transferred to and will be vested in the Spun Out Corporations by virtue of the Merger without further act or deed.  These debts include but are not limited to those listed in Addendum B;
(iii)
All property and assets of STHC or its subsidiaries immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger shall  be transferred to the Spun Out Corporations; and

(i)
The shares of Skyline common stock on a fully diluted basis will be converted into the right to receive an aggregate number of shares of STHC common stock to constitute at least eighty per cent (80%) of the issued and outstanding shares of STHC. “Fully diluted” shall mean that Skyline shall include all shares it will issue in connection with its present obligation to others. Holders of certificates previously evidencing shares of Skyline common stock outstanding at the Effective Time of the Merger, will cease to have any rights with respect to such shares of Skyline common stock, except as otherwise provided herein or by law.  Those persons receiving shares of STHC common stock and the number of shares to be received pursuant to the terms of the Merger and this Agreement are set forth in Attachment No. 2(c) annexed hereto.

(d) Restricted Securities.
 
(i)
None of the shares of STHC common stock into which the shares of Skyline common stock are to be converted will be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), but will be deemed to have been issued pursuant to an exemption or exemptions therefrom (subject to the satisfaction of certain other terms and conditions hereof) and will be considered “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act.  All shares of STHC common stock to be issued pursuant to this Agreement will be exempt from registration under the Securities Act pursuant to Section 4(2) of that Act and/or Regulation D, Rule 506 promulgated thereunder or other exemption, and certificates representing the shares will bear a restrictive legend worded substantially as follows and as may otherwise be required:

(ii)
At the Closing, STHC will direct its transfer agent to record as soon as practicable after the Closing, to issue the STHC common stock to the holders of Skyline common stock pursuant to the provisions set forth above.  The transfer agent will annotate its records to reflect the restrictions on transfer embodied in the legend set forth above.  There will be no requirement of STHC to register under the Securities Act any shares of Skyline common stock in connection with the Merger.
