This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). This Current Report includes statements regarding our plans, goals, strategies, intent, beliefs or current expectations. These statements are expressed in good faith and based upon a reasonable basis when made, but there can be no assurance that these expectations will be achieved or accomplished. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of terms and phrases such as “believe,” “plan,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “target,” “estimate,” “expect,” and the like, and/or future-tense or conditional constructions (“will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” etc.). Items contemplating or making assumptions about actual or potential future sales, market size, collaborations, and trends or operating results also constitute such forward-looking statements.
Although forward-looking statements in this report reflect the good faith judgment of management, forward-looking statements are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, business, economic and other risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to be materially different from those discussed in these forward-looking statements. Readers are urged not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. We assume no obligation to update any forward-looking statements in order to reflect any event or circumstance that may arise after the date of this report, other than as may be required by applicable law or regulation. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) which attempt to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, results of operation and cash flows. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may vary materially from those expected or projected.
FORM 10 DISCLOSURE

However, set forth below, pursuant to Item 2.01(f) of Form 8-K, is certain of the information that would be required if the Company were filing a general form for registration of securities on Form 10 under the Exchange Act with respect to its common stock (which is the only class of the Company’s securities subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act upon consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement).

The acquisition of the Shares, which represent approximately 70% of the Registrant’s shares of outstanding Common Stock, resulted in a change in control of the Registrant. In connection with the sale of the Shares, Mr. Peredkov and Vladimir Orekhovsky, the Registrant’s former Treasurer, resigned in any and all capacities as officers and directors of the Company and waived, forgave and discharged any indebtedness of any kind owed to them by the Registrant.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of BST (the “BST Interests”) issued and outstanding prior to the effective date of the Merger Agreement shall be converted into the right to receive Twenty-Eight Million (28,000,000) newly issued shares of Common Stock of the Registrant (the “Merger Shares”).

The Registrant agreed to issue an additional Four Million (4,000,000) shares of Common Stock in escrow for additional future offerings of Common Stock until February 28, 2021, at which time if the shares in escrow are not sold, they shall be retired and returned to the treasury.
