Scope of work.
As we discussed, in your capacity as a consultant to the corporation, reporting
directly to me, you will be responsible for effecting a smooth transition of
our financial department activities, to coincide with the departure of our
current CFO on or about 12-31-06. During this period leading up to his
departure, you will work with our current CFO and his direct reports in
developing a full understanding of his duties, knowledge and history of the
company and all financial affairs of the company. Upon his departure you will
be named "acting" Chief Financial Officer (CFO) which shall be publicly
disclosed. In the
capacity of acting CFO you will assume full responsibility for managing all day
to day financial reporting of the company, management of the financial
department employees, cash management and all Securities and Exchange (SEC)
reporting consistent with the requirements of a CFO of a publicly traded
company. You will also assist me, as directed, in new financing efforts,
negotiations with current creditors and existing borrowing relationships. In
summary, you will be responsible for all duties associated with those of a CFO
of a publicly traded company.
We have previously discussed the potential of renewals of this contract. The
company's offering of this agreement to you, and your acceptance of this
agreement, is predicated on the basis that you will agree to three (3)
renewal's of this agreement (on the same terms as defined in this agreement) if
the company so requests.
In accepting this offer of employment, you agree that all information that is
provided to you, or you have access to will remain confidential to you (other
than publicly disclosed) and not disclosed to a third party, other than in the
ordinary course of business without the prior written consent of the company.
In accepting this offer, you will be charged with making your best efforts, in
utilizing your skills, to insure that we manage the company through a difficult
time, to insure, as best we can, that we protect our creditors and
shareholders. Your history demonstrates your ability to provide value in these
situations, and in making this offer to you, on behalf of the company, I trust
that you will be a critical component of the management team in taking this
I look forward to working with you, and the assistance you will provide.
