    Financial Summary

    In its most recent filing, the Company stated that it had no revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009, or for the year ended December 31, 2008.

    Total costs and expenses of $603,600 for the year ended December 31, 2009, and $1,962,780 for the year ended December 31, 2008, consisted of general and administrative expenses, including the compensatory element of stock issuances.

    For the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company sustained net losses of $633,660 as compared with net losses of $2,514,380 for the year ended December 31, 2008.

    At December 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of $88,000 comprised mainly of property and equipment.  There were liabilities of $1,450,191 comprised of $18,378 in accounts payable and $1,431,813 in short term debentures payable. Assets of $88,000 and liabilities of $1,450,191 resulted in a working capital deficiency of $1,362,191. The Company reported total stockholders’ deficit of $1,362,191 at December 31, 2009.

    The Company stated that it anticipates that its current cash on hand of $0 as of December 31, 2009, is not sufficient to satisfy its cash requirements without additional funding.  The Company has funded its operations and met its capital expenditures requirements primarily through cash generated from contributions from the issuance of convertible debt securities and short-term promissory notes. It does not have any financing commitments and no assurance can be made that it will be obtaining financing at the times and terms needed. Therefore, there is substantial doubt that it will be able to continue as a going concern. In addition, the Company will need substantial additional capital during the next 12 months in order to complete its business plan.
