WHEREAS, the Company and Jamco wish to cancel the Consulting Agreement and resolve and settle the $54,000 obligation due by the Company under the Consulting Agreement by issuing 1,040,000 shares of the Company’s common stock in full settlement of the $54,000;
 
 
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing recitals, and the mutual covenants and agreements set forth herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company and Jamco hereby agree as follows:

All such shares shall be deemed fully paid upon issuance by the Company.  Jamco acknowledges that the shares will carry a legend restricting their resale except pursuant to an available exemption under applicable securities laws.  The Company agrees that it will use its best efforts to promptly remove such legend at the request of Jamco at such time as the shares are transferable under applicable securities laws.

3. Mutual Non-disparagement.  Each of the Company and Jamco agrees to refrain from making any oral or written statements to any third parties that are disparaging of the other party.
 
4.           Mutual Release.  For and in consideration of the agreements set out in this Settlement Agreement, and conditioned upon the Company’s satisfaction of the $54,000 Obligation by making the payments set forth in Section 1 above, each of the Company and Jamco (each a “Releasing Party”), and any other person or entity who could claim through either of said parties, including but not limited to, their officers, directors, heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns, hereby irrevocably and unconditionally release, acquit, and forever discharge the other party, its successors, assigns, agents, representatives and attorneys (each a “Released Party” and collectively, the “Released Parties”) from any and all claims, demands, or liabilities whatsoever, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, now existing or arising in the future, at law or in equity, which the Releasing Party ever had or may now have against the Released Parties, including without limitation, any claims, demands, or liabilities (including attorneys’ fees and costs actually incurred) arising out of or relating to any of the $54,000 obligation (except for claims arising under this Settlement Agreement).  It is the parties’ intention to fully and finally settle and release each other from any matters and claims relating to the $54,000 obligation, notwithstanding the discovery or existence of any additional or different claims or facts.
