NOTICE OF STOCKHOLDER ACTION BY WRITTEN CONSENT
To the Holders of Common Stock of Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc.:
This Information Statement has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and is being furnished, pursuant to Section 14C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), to the holders (the "Stockholders") of common stock, no par value per share (the "Common Stock"), of Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc., a Florida corporation (the "Company"), to notify the Stockholders that on October 30, 2012, the Company received a unanimous written consent in lieu of a meeting of the holders of Series Q Preferred Stock, no par value per share (the "Series Q Preferred"), created by unanimous written consent of the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board"), as permitted by the Company's Certificate of Incorporation, as may be amended (the "Certificate"). Each share of Series Q Preferred has the equivalent of 168,395,349 votes of Common Stock (based upon the outstanding number of shares of Common Stock issued at the time hereof). Currently, there is one holder of Series Q Preferred (the "Series Q Stockholder" or the "Majority Stockholder"), holding fifty-one (51) shares of Series Q Preferred, resulting in the Series Q Stockholder holding in the aggregate approximately 50.9989% of the total voting power of all issued and outstanding voting capital of the Company. The Series Q Stockholder authorized the following:
The 1-for-500 reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (the "Reverse Stock Split");
On October 30, 2012, the Board approved the Reverse Stock Split and recommended to the Majority Stockholder that she approve the Reverse Stock Split. On October 30, 2012, the Majority Stockholder approved the Reverse Stock Split by written consent in lieu of a meeting, in accordance with Florida law. Accordingly, your consent is not required and is not being solicited in connection with the approval of the Reverse Stock Split.
We will mail the Notice of Stockholder Action by Written Consent to the Stockholders on or about November 15, 2012.
WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR A PROXY AND YOU ARE REQUESTED NOT TO SEND A PROXY.
The Board believes that the Stockholders of the Company will benefit from the Reverse Stock Split because it believes that such Reverse Stock Split could be a catalyst for an increase in the stock price of the Common Stock, which in turn could increase the marketability and liquidity of the Company's Common Stock, as well as increase the profile of the Company for private investment, acquisitions and other future opportunities that become available to the Company.
Accordingly, it is the Board's opinion that the Reverse Stock Split would better position the Company to attract potential business candidates and provide the Stockholders a greater potential return.
Florida law provides that the written consent of the holders of outstanding shares of voting capital stock having not less than the minimum number of votes which would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted can approve an action in lieu of conducting a special stockholders' meeting convened for the specific purpose of such action. Florida law, however, requires that in the event an action is approved by written consent, a company must provide prompt notice of the taking of any corporate action without a meeting to the stockholders of record who have not consented in writing to such action and who, if the action had been taken at a meeting, would have been entitled to notice of the meeting if the record date for such meeting had been the date that written consents signed by a sufficient number of holders to take the action were delivered to a company.
In accordance with the foregoing, we will mail the Notice of Stockholder Action by Written Consent on or about November 15, 2012.
This Information Statement contains a brief summary of the material aspects of the Reverse Stock Split approved by the Board of Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc., (the "Company," "we," "our," or "us") and the holder of Series Q Preferred Stock (the "Series Q Preferred"), which constitute a majority of the voting capital stock of the Company.
Series Q Preferred
By unanimous written consent of the Board (as permitted under Florida law), the number, designation, rights, preferences and privileges of the Series Q Preferred were established by the Board (as is permitted under Florida law and by the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company, as may be amended). The designation, rights, preferences and privileges that the Board established for the Series Q Preferred is set forth in a Certificate of Designation that was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida on March 15, 2012. Among other things, the Certificate of Designation provides that each one share of Series Q Preferred has voting rights equal to (x) 0.019607 multiplied by the total issued and outstanding Common Stock eligible to vote at the time of the respective vote (the "Numerator"), divided by (y) 0.49, minus (z) the Numerator.
By unanimous written consent of the Board, the Board issued an aggregate of fifty one (51) shares of Series Q Preferred, to one individual (the "Series Q Stockholder"). As a result of the voting rights granted to the Series Q Preferred, the Series Q Stockholder holds in the aggregate approximately 50.9989% of the total voting power of all issued and outstanding voting capital of the Company.
As of October 29, 2012, there were issued and outstanding (i) 8,251,726,930 shares of our Common Stock, (ii) twenty (20) shares of our Series L Convertible Preferred Stock, (iii) fifty-five (55) shares of our Series P Preferred; and (iv) fifty-one (51) shares of Series Q Preferred. Based on the foregoing, the total aggregate amount of votes entitled to vote regarding the approval of the Reverse Stock Split approved by the Board is 16,839,889,734 (the sum of the votes represented by the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, Series L Preferred Stock, Series P Preferred Stock and Series Q Preferred). Pursuant to Florida law, at least a majority of the voting equity of the Company, or at least 8,588,162,804 votes, are required to approve the Reverse Stock Split by written consent. The Series Q Stockholder, which holds in the aggregate fifty one (51) shares of Preferred Stock, or approximately 50.9989% of the voting equity of the Company, has voted in favor of the Reverse Stock Split, thereby satisfying the requirement under Florida law that at least a majority of the voting equity vote in favor of a corporate action by written consent.
The following table sets forth the name of the Series Q Stockholder, the number of shares of Series Q Preferred held by each Series Q Stockholder, the total number of votes that the Series Q Stockholder voted in favor of the Reverse Stock Split and the percentage of the issued and outstanding voting equity of the Company that voted in favor thereof.
|Name of Series Q Stockholder|
Number of Shares of Series Q Preferred held
|Number of Votes held by such Series Q Stockholder||Number of Votes that Voted in favor of the Actions||Percentage of the Voting Equity that Voted in favor of the Actions|
ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN
The Reverse Stock Split will become effective on the date that we file the Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the "Amendment") with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida. We intend to file the Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida promptly after the twentieth (20th) day following the date on which this Information Statement is mailed to the Stockholders.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we must first notify FINRA of the intended Reverse Stock Split by filing the Issuer Company Related Action Notification Form no later than ten (10) days prior to the anticipated record date of such action. Our failure to provide such notice may constitute fraud under Section 10 of the Exchange Act.
We currently expect to file the Amendment on December 4, 2012.
1-FOR-500 REVERSE STOCK SPLIT
Our Board approved by unanimous written consent a 1-for-500 reverse stock split (the "Reverse Stock Split"). Pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split, each five hundred (500) shares of our Common Stock will be automatically converted, without any further action by the Stockholders, into one share of Common Stock. No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued as the result of the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, the Company will issue to the Stockholders one additional share of Common Stock for each fractional share. The Company anticipates that the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split will be December 4, 2012.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT WILL NOT CHANGE YOUR PROPORTIONATE EQUITY INTERESTS IN THE COMPANY, EXCEPT AS MAY RESULT FROM THE ISSUANCE OF SHARES PURSUANT TO THE FRACTIONAL SHARES.
PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT
Our Board believes that, among other reasons, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock have contributed to a lack of investor interest in the Company and has made it difficult for the Company to attract new investors and potential business candidates. Our Board proposed the Reverse Stock Split as one method to attract business opportunities for the Company. Our Board believes that the Reverse Stock Split could increase the stock price of our Common Stock and that the higher stock price could help generate interest in the Company by investors and provide business opportunities.
However, the effect of the Reverse Stock Split, if any, upon the stock price for our Common Stock cannot be predicted, and the history of similar stock split combinations for companies like us is varied. Further, we cannot assure you that the stock price of our Common Stock after the Reverse Stock Split will rise in proportion to the reduction in the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as a result of the Reverse Stock Split because, among other things, the stock price of our Common Stock may be based on our performance and other factors as well.
The principal effect of the Reverse Stock Split will be the reduction in the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding from 8,251,726,930 shares as of October 29, 2012 to approximately 16,503,454 shares (depending on the number of fractional shares that are issued). The Reverse Stock Split will affect all of our Stockholders uniformly and will not affect any Stockholder's percentage ownership interest in the Company or proportionate voting power, except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split results in any of our Stockholders holding a fractional share of our Common Stock. The Common Stock issued pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split will remain fully paid and non-assessable. The Reverse Stock Split shall not affect any rights, privileges or obligations with respect to the shares of Common Stock existing prior to the Reverse Stock Split, nor does it increase or decrease the market capitalization of the Company. The Reverse Stock Split is not intended as, and will not have the effect of, a "going private transaction" under Rule 13e-3 of the Exchange Act. We will continue to be subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act.
By reducing the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, more shares of Common Stock are available for issuance as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. The Board believes that the availability of more shares of Common Stock for issuance will allow the Company greater flexibility in pursuing financing from investors and issuing shares of Common Stock in exchange for such financing, meeting business needs as they arise, taking advantage of favorable opportunities, and responding to a changing corporate environment. Although the foregoing effect is mitigated somewhat by the reduction in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock described below, the number of shares of Common Stock remaining available for issuance is still greater than prior to the Reverse Stock Split because we are not reducing the total number of authorized shares of Common Stock by the same ratio as the Reverse Stock Split.
The following chart depicts the capitalization structure of the Company both pre-Reverse Stock Split and post-Reverse Stock Split (the post-split shares of Common Stock may differ slightly based on the number of fractional shares), taking into effect the Authorized Class A Share Decrease:
Pre-Reverse Stock Split

|Issued Shares||Authorized but Unissued|
Post-Reverse Stock Split
|Authorized Shares||Issued Shares||Authorized but Unissued|
CERTAIN RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH REVERSE STOCK SPLIT
You should recognize that you will own a lesser number of shares of Common Stock than you presently own. While we hope that the Reverse Stock Split will result in an increase in the potential stock price of our Common Stock, we cannot assure you that the Reverse Stock Split will increase the potential stock price of our Common Stock by a multiple equal to the inverse of the Reverse Stock Split ratio or result in the permanent increase in any potential stock price (which is dependent upon many factors, including our performance and prospects). Should the stock price of our Common Stock decline, the percentage decline as an absolute number and as a percentage of our overall market capitalization may be greater than would occur in the absence of a Reverse Stock Split. Furthermore, the possibility exists that potential liquidity in the stock price of our Common Stock could be adversely affected by the reduced number of shares of Common Stock that would be outstanding after the Reverse Stock Split. In addition, the Reverse Stock Split will increase the number of Stockholders of the Company who own odd lots (less than 100 shares). Stockholders who hold odd lots typically will experience an increase in the cost of selling their shares, as well as possible greater difficulty in effecting such sales. As a result, we cannot assure you that the Reverse Stock Split will achieve the desired results that have been outlined above.
ANTI-TAKEOVER EFFECTS OF THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT
THE OVERALL EFFECT OF THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT MAY BE TO RENDER MORE DIFFICULT THE CONSUMMATION OF MERGERS WITH THE COMPANY OR THE ASSUMPTION OF CONTROL BY A PRINCIPAL STOCKHOLDER, AND THUS MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO REMOVE MANAGEMENT.
A possible effect of the Reverse Stock Split is to discourage a merger, tender offer or proxy contest, or the assumption of control by a holder of a large block of the Company's voting securities and the removal of incumbent management. Our management could use the additional shares of Common Stock available for issuance to resist or frustrate a third-party take-over effort favored by a majority of the independent Stockholders that would provide an above market premium by issuing additional shares of Common Stock.
The Reverse Stock Split is not the result of management's knowledge of an effort to accumulate the Company's securities or to obtain control of the Company by means of a merger, tender offer, solicitation or otherwise. Nor is the Reverse Stock Split a plan by management to adopt a series of amendments to the Company's charter or by-laws to institute an anti-takeover provision. The Company does not have any plans or proposals to adopt other provisions or enter into other arrangements that may have material anti-takeover consequences. As discussed above, the reason for the Reverse Stock Split is to increase the amount of shares of Common Stock that the Company is able to issue in order to attract potential investors and conduct equity financings.
PROCEDURE FOR EFFECTING REVERSE STOCK SPLIT AND EXCHANGE OF STOCK CERTIFICATES
We anticipate that the Reverse Stock Split will become effective on December 4, 2012, or as soon thereafter as is reasonably practicable (the "Effective Date"). Beginning on the Effective Date, each stock certificate representing pre-Reverse Stock Split shares of Common Stock will be deemed for all corporate purposes to evidence ownership of post-Reverse Stock Split shares of Common Stock.
Our transfer agent, Jersey Transfer and Trust Co., will act as exchange agent (the "Exchange Agent") for purposes of implementing the exchange of stock certificates. Holders of pre- Reverse Stock Split shares of Common Stock are asked to surrender to the Exchange Agent stock certificates representing pre-Reverse Stock Split shares of Common Stock in exchange for stock certificates representing post- Reverse Stock Split shares of Common Stock in accordance with the procedures set forth in the letter of transmittal enclosed with this Information Statement. No new stock certificates will be issued to a Stockholder until such Stockholder has surrendered the outstanding stock certificate(s) held by such Stockholder, together with a properly completed and executed letter of transmittal.
Further, prior to filing the amendment to the Articles of Incorporation reflecting the Reverse Stock Split, we must first notify the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") by filing the Issuer Company Related Action Notification Form no later than ten (10) days prior to the record date for the Reverse Stock Split, anticipated to be December 4, 2012. Our failure to provide such notice may constitute fraud under Section 10 of the Exchange Act.
STOCKHOLDERS SHOULD NOT DESTROY ANY STOCK CERTIFICATES AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT ANY CERTIFICATES WITHOUT THE LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.
No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued as the result of the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, the Company will issue to the Stockholders one additional share of Common Stock for each fractional share.
NO APPRAISAL RIGHTS
Under Florida law, our Stockholders are not entitled to appraisal rights in connection with the Reverse Stock Split.
SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT
The following tables set forth certain information regarding the beneficial ownership of our Common Stock as of October 29, 2012 of (i) each person known to us to beneficially own more than 10% of Common Stock, (ii) our directors, (iii) each named executive officer and (iv) all directors and named executive officers as a group. As of October 29, 2012, there were a total of 8,251,726,930 shares of Common Stock outstanding. Each share of Common Stock is entitled to one vote on matters on which holders of voting stock of the Company are eligible to vote. The column entitled "Percentage of Outstanding Common Stock" shows the percentage of voting common stock beneficially owned by each listed party. The column entitled "Percentage of Outstanding Series Q Preferred Stock" shows the percentage of total Series Q Preferred beneficially owned by each listed party.
The number of shares beneficially owned is determined under the rules promulgated by the SEC, and the information is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose. Under those rules, beneficial ownership includes any shares as to which a person or entity has sole or shared voting power or investment power plus any shares which such person or entity has the right to acquire within sixty (60) days of October 29, 2012 through the exercise or conversion of any stock option, convertible security, warrant or other right.
