As of the Record Date, there were 554,773,461 shares of the Company s Common Stock and 750,000 shares of Series D Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. Each share of Common Stock and Series D Preferred Stock entitles the holder thereof to one vote on each matter that may come before a meeting of the stockholders. Immediately prior to the financing,  there were 238,510,794 shares of the Company s Common Stock issued and outstanding.


Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management


The following two tables set forth certain information concerning the number of shares of the Company s Common Stock owned beneficially as of February 12, 2018, immediately prior to the consummation of the Financing and on the Record Date on a proforma basis by giving effect to the Financing and all the transactions contemplated thereby of: (i) each of the Company s directors; (ii) each of the Company s named executive officers, (iii) officers and directors as a group and (iv) each stockholder known by the Company to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of the Company s outstanding securities.   




The amounts and percentages of our common stock beneficially owned are reported on the basis of SEC rules governing the determination of beneficial ownership of securities. Under the SEC rules, a person is deemed to be a beneficial owner of a security if that person has or shares voting power, which includes the power to vote or to direct the voting of such security, or investment power, which includes the power to dispose of or to direct the disposition of such security. A person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any securities of which that person has the right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days through the exercise of any stock option, warrant or other right. Under these rules, more than one person may be deemed a beneficial owner of the same securities and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which such person has no economic interest.

 

In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares outstanding is deemed to include the number of shares beneficially owned by such person. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in these table may differ from such person s actual ownership percentage as determined by using number of shares of our common stock actually outstanding on the Record Date.


Unless otherwise indicated, each of the shareholders named in the table below, or his or her family members, has sole voting and investment power with respect to such shares of our common stock. Except as otherwise indicated, the address of each of the shareholders listed below is: 2990 Red Hill Ave, Costa Mesa, California 92626.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS INVOLVING DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS


The Company is not aware of any legal proceedings to which any current or prospective director, officer, affiliate of the Company, or owner of more than five percent of the Company s Common Stock (beneficially or of record) is a party adverse in interest to the Company.


CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS


Except as described above, none of the following parties has, in the last two years, had any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction with the Company or in any presently proposed transaction that has or will materially affect the Company:   


Any of the Company s directors or officers;

Any person proposed as a nominee for election as a director;

Any person who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, shares carrying more than 5% of the voting rights attached to the Company s outstanding shares of common stock;

Any of the Company promoters; and

Any member of the immediate family (including spouse, parents, children, siblings and in-laws) of any of the foregoing persons.


Kambiz Mahdi, our Chief Executive Officer, owns Billet Electronics, which is an independent distributor of electronic components. From time to time we purchase parts from Billet Electronics. In addition Billet was a supplier of parts and had dealings with current and former customers of our company. Our B oard of D irectors has approved such transactions of our chief executive officer.


SECTION 16(A) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE


Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our directors and executive officers and persons who beneficially own more than ten percent of a registered class of our equity securities to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of change in ownership of common stock and other equity securities of the Company. Officers, directors and greater than ten percent stockholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based solely upon a review of Forms 3 and 4 and amendments thereto furnished to us under Rule 16a-3(e) during the



year ended December 31, 2017, Forms 5 and any amendments thereto furnished to us with respect to the year ended December 31, 2017, and the representations made by the reporting persons to us, we believe that during the year ended December 31, 2017, our executive officers and directors and all persons who own more than ten percent of a registered class of our equity securities complied with all Section 16(a) filing requirements with the exception of ETI Partners IV LLC or their members who may be considered to beneficially own our common stock who have not filed a Forms 3 or 4 in 2012 or thereafter or a Form 5 as required in 2017.


AUDIT, NOMINATING AND COMPENSATION COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS


The Company s audit committee presently consists of our sole director. The Company does not have a compensation committee or nominating committee.


The Company s directors perform the functions of the audit, nominating and compensation committees. The current size of the company does not facilitate the establishment of a separate committees.  Our Board of Directors as establish ad hoc committees to address specific areas in more depth than may be possible at a full Board of Directors meeting. The Company plans establish separate committees in the future.


Audit Committee Financial Expert


The Company has no audit committee financial expert serving on its audit committee. The Company believes the cost related to retaining a financial expert at this time is prohibitive. Further, because of the Company s state of development, it believes the services of a financial expert are not warranted.


DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE


Our common stock is quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board inter-dealer quotation system, which does not have director independence requirements.  Under NASDAQ Rule 5605(a)(2), a director is not considered to be independent if he or she is also an executive officer or employee of the corporation.  The Company s sole director, Kambiz Mahdy, is also the Chief Executive Officer, As a result, the Company does not have any independent directors. After the Effective Date, Messrs, Pang, Lin, Luy and Wang will be considered independent.


MEETINGS OF DIRECTORS


Our Board of Directors held three meetings during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Each of our incumbent directors attended at least 75.0% of the aggregate total number of meetings of our Board of Directors held during the period for which he served as a director.


NOMINATION AND APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTORS


The appointment of the proposed directors was made by a consent resolution of the Company s director at the time of the Financing which will become effective on the Effective Date. The stockholders of the Company will not be given an opportunity to recommend additional or alternative candidates for the Board of Directors.


SECURITY HOLDER COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS




The Company has not provided any separate process for communicating with the Board of Directors.  Communications to the board of directors may be directed to the Company at the address and telephone number set out on the cover page to this Information Statement.

1)    On October 1, 2015, we entered into a new employment agreement with Mr. Mahdi for 2 years with an annual salary of $275,000 In 2017 Mr. Mahdi was paid down total of $38,461 from the past due balance of unpaid salary from 2016 with remaining outstanding balance of  $69,884 due to lack of capital.

 

2) In 2016 Mr. Bennett was only paid $74,821 due to lack of capital and is still due $58,145 from 2016.

 

3) here were no bonuses paid or accrued for any executives for fiscal years 2017 and 2016.

 

4)       Mr. Bennett was issued an option to purchase 30,000 shares of our common stock on February 8, 2007 at $1.73 under our 2006 Plan and an option to purchase 30,000 shares of our common stock at $.33 per share on February 28, 2008.  Both option grants expired on February 08, 2017. 




Outstanding Awards At Fiscal Year-End


There are no outstanding options or stock awards held by our named executive officers as of December 31, 2017.


Mr. Bennett was issued an option to purchase 30,000 shares of our common stock on February 8, 2007 at $1.73 under our 2006 Plan and an option to purchase 300,000 shares of our common stock on February 28, 2008.  Both option grants expired on February 08, 2017. 


The company has adopted the use of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123R,  Share-Based Payment  (SFAS No. 123R) (now contained in FASB Codification Topic 718,  Compensation-Stock Compensation ), which supersedes APB Opinion No. 25,  Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees , and its related implementation guidance and eliminates the alternative to use Opinion 25 s intrinsic value method of accounting that was provided in Statement 123 as originally issued. This Statement requires an entity to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of an equity instruments, which includes grants of stock options and stock warrants, based on the fair value of the award, measured at the grant date, (with limited exceptions). Under this standard, the fair value of each award is estimated on the grant date, using an option-pricing model that meets certain requirements. We use the Black- Scholes option-pricing model to estimate the fair value of our equity awards, including stock options and warrants. The Black-Scholes model meets the requirements of SFAS No. 123R; however, the fair values generated may not reflect their actual fair values, as it does not consider certain factors, such as vesting requirements, employee attrition and transferability limitations. The Black-Scholes model valuation is affected by our stock price and a number of assumptions, including expected volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and expected dividends. We estimate the expected volatility and estimated life of our stock options at grant date based on historical volatility; however, due to the thinly traded nature of our stock, we have chosen to use an average of the annual volatility of like companies in our industry. For the  risk-free interest rate , we use the Constant Maturity Treasury rate on 90 day government securities. The term is equal to the time until the option expires. The dividend yield is not applicable, as the company has not paid any dividends, nor do we anticipate paying them in the foreseeable future. The fair value of our restricted stock is based on the market value of our free trading common stock, on the grant date calculated using a 20 trading day average. At the time of grant, the share based-compensation expense is recognized in our financial statements based on awards that are ultimately expected to vest using historical employee attrition rates and the expense is reduced accordingly.  It is also adjusted to account for the restricted and thinly traded nature of the shares.  The expense is reviewed and adjusted in subsequent periods if actual attrition differs from those estimates.

 

We re-evaluate the assumptions used to value our share-based awards on a quarterly basis and if changes warrant different assumptions, the share-based compensation expense could vary significantly from the amount expensed in the past. We may be required to adjust any remaining share-based compensation expense, based on any additions, cancellations or adjustments to the share based awards. The expense is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award, the requisite service period (usually the vesting period). No compensation cost is recognized for equity instruments for which employees do not render the requisite service.    For the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, we had $0 in non-vested expense to be recognized.  

 

Executive Employment Agreements

 

On September 1, 2011, the Board of Directors approved long-term executive employment agreements with our Chief Executive Officer, Kambiz Mahdi and Chief Financial Officer John Bennett, for a period



of five years from execution, unless terminated earlier pursuant to the terms of their respective agreements. 

 

On October 1, 2015 we entered into a new employment agreement with Mr. Mahdi for 2 years with an annual salary of $275,000. In addition, Mr. Mahdi will receive a severance benefit consisting of a single lump sum cash payment equal the salary that Mr. Mahdi would have been entitled to receive through the remainder or the Employment Period or (1) year, whichever is greater. Mr. Mahdi employment contract expired on October 1, 2017. Mr Mahdi has been continuing to work under the same terms and we are negotiating a new contract with Mr. Mahdi.
