1. The Mergers.

1.1 Mergers. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the First Articles of Merger, Acquisition Corp. shall be merged with and into the Company in accordance with State Law.  At the effective time of the First Merger, the separate legal existence of Acquisition Corp. shall cease, and the Company shall be the surviving corporation in the First Merger.  The Company shall then merge with and into Parent (sometimes hereinafter referred to as the “Surviving Corporation”), and thereafter the separate existence of the Company will cease. As of the Effective Date, Parent shall succeed to all of the rights, privileges, powers and property, including, without limitation, all rights, privileges, franchises, patents, trademarks, licenses, registrations, bank accounts, contracts, patents, copyrights and other assets of every kind and description of the Company  and shall continue its corporate existence under the laws of the State of Delaware.

3

 
1.2 Effective Time. The Merger shall become effective upon the filing of the Articles of Merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.  The time at which the Merger shall become effective as aforesaid is referred to hereinafter as the “Effective Time.”

1.3 Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Directors and Officers.

(a) The Articles of Incorporation of the Parent, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall continue as the Articles of Incorporation of the Surviving Corporation from and after the Effective Time until further amended in accordance with applicable law.

(b) The Bylaws of the Parent, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, attached as Exhibit C hereto, shall continue as the Bylaws of the Surviving Corporation from and after the Effective Time until amended in accordance with applicable law, the Articles of Incorporation of the Surviving Corporation and such Bylaws.

(c) The directors and officers listed in Exhibit D shall be the directors and officers of the Surviving Corporation, and each shall hold his respective office or offices from and after the Effective Time, until his successor shall have been elected and shall have qualified in accordance with applicable law, or as otherwise provided in the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Surviving Corporation.

1.4 Assets and Liabilities. At the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall possess all the rights, privileges, powers and franchises of a public as well as of a private nature, and be subject to all the restrictions, disabilities and duties of each of Acquisition Corp. and the Company (collectively, the “Constituent Corporations”); and all the rights, privileges, powers and franchises of each of the Constituent Corporations, and all property, real, personal and mixed, and all debts due to any of the constituent corporations on whatever account, as well for stock subscriptions as all other things in action or belonging to each of the Constituent Corporations, shall be vested in the Surviving Corporation; and all property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises, and all and every other interest shall be thereafter as effectively the property of the Surviving Corporation as they were of the several and respective Constituent Corporations, and the title to any real estate vested by deed or otherwise in either of such Constituent Corporations shall not revert or be in any way impaired by the Merger; but all rights of creditors and all liens upon any property of any of the Constituent Corporations shall be preserved unimpaired, and all debts, liabilities and duties of the Constituent Corporations shall thenceforth attach to the Surviving Corporation, and may be enforced against it to the same extent as if said debts, liabilities and duties had been incurred or contracted by it.

1.5 Manner and Basis of Converting Shares.

(a) At the Effective Time:

(i) each share of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of Acquisition Corp. that shall be outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by virtue of the First Merger and without any action on the part of the holder thereof, be converted into one (1) share of common stock, $0.10 par value per share, of the Company, so that at the effective time of the First Merger, Parent shall be the holder of all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company;

(ii) the shares of common stock, $0.10 par value per share, of the Company (the “Company Common Stock”), which shares at the Closing will constitute all of the issued and outstanding Equity Securities of Company, beneficially owned by the Company Stockholder, shall, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the holders thereof, be converted into 52,260,000 [equal to 87.1% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Parent]  so that the number of shares of Parent Common Stock specified in Schedule 1.5 will be issued to each of the Company Stockholder, which shall be equal to 52,260,000  shares of Parent Common Stock for each (1) share of Company Common Stock (the “Merger Consideration”).  Each certificate evidencing shares represented by the Merger Consideration issued pursuant to this Section 1.5(a)(ii) shall bear the following legend (in addition to any legend required under applicable state securities laws):

4

 
“THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED, ASSIGNED OR HYPOTHECATED UNLESS THERE IS AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER SUCH ACT COVERING SUCH SECURITIES, THE SALE IS MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH RULE 144 UNDER THE ACT, OR THE CORPORATION RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL FOR THE HOLDER OF THESE SECURITIES REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE CORPORATION STATING THAT SUCH SALE, TRANSFER, ASSIGNMENT OR HYPOTHECATION IS EXEMPT FROM REGISTRATION AND PROSPECTUS DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS OF SUCH ACT.”
 
(iii) there will be no Equity Security that converts into shares of Parent Common Stock outstanding or issuable at the Effective Time;

(iv) each share of Company Common Stock held in the treasury of the Company immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be cancelled in the Merger and cease to exist.

(b) After the Effective Time, there shall be no further registration of transfers on the stock transfer books of the Company of the shares of Company Common Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time.

1.6 Surrender and Exchange of Certificates. Promptly after the Effective Time and upon (i) surrender of a certificate or certificates representing shares of Company Common Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time or an affidavit and indemnification in form reasonably acceptable to counsel for the Parent stating that such Stockholder has lost its certificate or certificates or that such certificates have been destroyed and (ii) delivery of a Letter of Transmittal (as described in Section 4 hereof), Parent (directly or through its transfer agent) shall issue to each record holder of the Company Common Stock surrendering such certificate or certificates and Letter of Transmittal, a certificate or certificates registered in the name of such Stockholder representing the number of shares of Parent Common Stock that such Stockholder shall be entitled to receive as set forth in Sections 1.5(a)(ii) and 1.5(a)(iii) hereof. Until the certificate, certificates or affidavit is or are surrendered together with the Letter of Transmittal as contemplated by this Section 1.6 and Section 4 hereof, each certificate or affidavit that immediately prior to the Effective Time represented any outstanding shares of Company Common Stock shall be deemed at and after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon surrender as aforesaid the Parent Common Stock specified in Schedule 1.5 hereof for the holder thereof or to perfect any rights of appraisal which such holder may have pursuant to the applicable provisions of State Law.

1.7 Parent Common Stock. Parent agrees that it will cause the Parent Common Stock into which the Company Common Stock is converted at the Effective Time pursuant to Section 1.5(a)(ii) to be available for such purpose. Parent further covenants that immediately prior to the Effective Time there will be no more than 21,244,114 shares of Parent Common Stock issued and outstanding, and that no other Equity Securities shall be issued, issuable or outstanding.
