Record Date, Voting Securities, Quorum and Voting Tabulation

 

Our board of directors has fixed the close of business on February 11th, 2015 as the record date for determining the shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting, or any adjournments or postponements thereof.  As of the record date, we had 5,088,559 shares of Preferred B Series stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote on the matters described herein (the “Voting Shares”).  Each whole Voting Share entitles the holder thereof to one vote and each fractional Voting Share entitles the holder thereof to a factional vote.  The presence, in person or by proxy, of the holders of a majority of the Voting Shares is necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at the Special Meeting.  If a quorum exists, action on each matter is approved if the votes cast in favor of the action exceed the votes cast opposing the action.Unless otherwise marked or indicated on the proxy, the shares will be voted “FOR” the approval of each of the proposals discussed herein.

 

Votes cast by proxy or in person at the Special Meeting will be tabulated by the inspector of election in conjunction with information received from our transfer agent. The inspector of election will also determine whether or not a quorum is present.

 

Shares which abstain from voting as to the proposals and shares held in “street name” by brokers or nominees who indicate on their proxies that they do not have discretionary authority to vote such shares as to any proposal (“broker non-votes”), will be counted for purposes of determining whether the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present at the meeting and entitled to vote on the proposal has been obtained, but will have the effect of reducing the number of affirmative votes required to achieve the majority vote on the proposal.

 

Revocability of Proxy

 

Any proxy given pursuant to this proxy solicitation may be revoked by the person giving it at any time prior to its use by delivering to us a written notice of revocation, a duly executed proxy bearing a later date or by attending the Special Meeting and voting in person.

PROPOSAL – TO APPROVE AN AMENDMENT TO OUR ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION TO EXTEND THE LOCK-UP/LEAK-OUT HOLDING PERIOD FOR A MAXIMUM OF ONE YEAR.

 

General

 

As more fully explained below, we believe that it is in the best interests of our company and our shareholders to amend section 1 & 1.1 of the Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement increasing the holding period forSeries B Preferred Shares. On February 5, 2015, our board of directors approved an amendment to the Lock Up/Leak Out Agreement for Series B Preferred Shareholder to amend the Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement for Series B Shareholders to increase the Holding Period until after an S1 Registration Statement is filed or a maximum of 12 months following this filing; The proposed amendment is referred to in this proxy statement as the “Authorized Amendment”. If approved by our shareholders, the Authorized Amendment will become effective when it is filed with the Secretary of State of Florida.

 

Reasons for the Increase Holding Period

 

As of February 11th, 2015, 5,088,559 shares of Preferred B Series stock have been issued and outstanding. If the Authorized Amendment is approved by our shareholders, it will protect our common stock shareholders, stabilize share price, attract investors, and allow the Company to acquire larger businesses. If the Authorized Amendment is not approved our Common Shareholders will suffer significant loss. We know that our growth depends on the use of Preferred shares as part of financing transactions pursuant to which we would issue shares of our common stock.

 

Effects of the Increase Holding Period

 

The amendment will increase the holding period of Series B Preferred Stock until after our S1 Registration Statement becomes effective or a maximum of 12 months following this filing. While Cardiff believes the company will qualify for a Secondary Public Offering, uplifting to a qualified Exchange within the next 12 months, we cannot guarantee this. Currently Cardiff’s Assets/Revenue/Cash/Debt do not qualify for an underwriting, the NYSE-AMEX Exchange or NASDAQ. However, Cardiff anticipates meeting the requirements of the NYSE-AMEX Exchange within the next 6 month period.

 

Our common stock is traded on OTC Markets which is a quotation service, not an exchange. OTC Markets does not reserve the right to refuse to list or to de-list any stock which has unusual voting provisions that nullify or restrict its voting.

 

Advantages and Disadvantages of amending Section 1 & 1.1 of the Lock-Up/Leak-Out

 

As noted above, increasing the holding period will protect our common shareholders, stabilize share price, attract investors, attempt to move to the NYSE-AMEX Exchange and provide the Company with the ability to acquire larger acquisitions. There is no disadvantage to existing Preferred B Series shareholders unless the Company fails as this Amendment protects their investment.

 

Consequences to the Company of Failure to Approve the Authorized Amendment to amend Section 1 of the Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement governing Preferred B Series Shares

 

As noted above, the Company believes if not approved, it would have long-term negative effects --- both on capital formation as well as negatively impacting companies existing public shareholders. Holding periods are the mechanisms that enable companies who raise capital privately, to use that capital to grow the company for an established time period before new investors can “cash out” which would impact the market for the company’s shares. It is Cardiff’s opinion, that without an extension of the holding period, Cardiff could face three major negative impacts: First, it will greatly dilute common shareholders; Second, it will depress the price of shares significantly; Third, it will effect long-term investors which would deprive the Company of funding.

Vote by Board of Directors

 

On February 5th, the board of directors voted to approve the Authorized Amendment in order to amend section 1 of the Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement governing Preferred B Series shares.

 

Based on the foregoing discussion, the board of directors requests that shareholders approve the following resolution:

 

RESOLVED, that paragraph 1 & 1.1 of the Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement to read as follows:

 

1.       Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, Preferred B Series shareholders will not be allowed to convert their B certificates until after an S1 Registration Statement becomes effective and/or hold their certificates for an additional 12 month period following this filing. Following the amended holding period, the shareholder may sell as agreed to in the Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement as follows:

 

2.     The Shareholder shall be allowed to convert to Common Shares and sell an amount of the Shareholder’s Preferred Stock equal to 1% (one percent) of the total number of Preferred shares owned, on a monthly basis, for a period of four (4) years. Beginning in the first (1st) month of the fifth (5th) year, the Leak-Out agreement shall cease and the shareholder may liquidate the balance of their Preferred shares remaining. Shareholders understands that a “conversion” shall not exceed 4.9% of the issued and outstanding securities of the Company (to be defined for all purposes hereof as the amount indicated in the Company’s most recent filing with the SEC) during each month of the four (4) calendar years, (the “Leak-Out Period”).  

 

Form of Amendment

 

Assuming that our shareholders approve this proposal, we intend to file the Authorized Amendment, the form of which is attached to this proxy statement as Annex 1, with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida as soon as practicable. 

 

Effective Date

 

The Authorized Amendment will become effective upon filing amendment to the Articles of Incorporation.

 

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE APPROVAL OF

AMENDING THE LOCK-UP/LEAK-OUT AGREEMENT SECTION 1 & 1.1
