Risk Factors

The securities offered hereby are speculative in nature and involve a high degree of risk.

8.1        Arbitrary Determination of Stock Price The price of the Shares have been determined arbitrarily by the Company. The price should not be regarded as an indication of any future market price of the Company's stock and has no relation to the value of the Company's stock.

8.2        Dependence on Key Personnel The success of the Companyis dependent on the efforts and abilities of its current officers and directors. If the Company were to lose the services of such officers, its business could be materially and adversely affected.

8.3        Discretion in Application of Proceeds The Company's current management may allocate the proceeds of this financing in accordance with its needs and operation. Subject to the supervision of the Board of Directors, the Company's management will be given discretion in the application of the proceeds.

8.4        Restrictions on Transfer The Shares may not be resold unless such sale is registered or qualifies for an exemption from registration under the Act and all applicable state securities laws. The Shares should be considered a suitable investment only for Purchasers whose financial position is such that they will be able to hold the Shares for an indefinite period. Some state laws may impose additional restrictions on transfer of the Shares.

For all of the reasons stated in the risk factors and others, including, without limitation, those set forth herein, these shares involve a high degree of risk. Any person considering an investment in the securities offered should be aware of these factors. These securities should only be purchased by persons who can afford a total loss of their investment in the company and have no immediate need for a return of or on their investment.
