The Company is a __________ Corporation that trades publicly on the NASDAQ Over the Counter Bulletin Board.

The Company’s product line is made up of the following categories: ___________________________________________________________________________ Patents and Proprietary Technology. ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ THE ENCLOSED BUSINESS PLAN PROVIDES FURTHER INFORMATION AND DETAIL WITH RESPECT TO THE COMPANY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ITS BUSINESS, PRODUCT LINE, MARKET ANALYSIS, MARKETING PLANS, COMPETITION, RISK FACTORS AND MANAGEMENT. © Copyright 2011 Docstoc Inc. registered document proprietary, copy not 1 II. COMPETITION. ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ III. RISK AND OTHER IMPORTANT FACTORS An investment in the Company's Common Stock involves a high degree of risk and is suitable only for persons possessing substantial financial means who have no need for liquid investments. In analyzing this offering, prospective investors should consider, among other things, the following: OFFERING PRICE: The per share offering price of $______ has been arbitrarily set by the Company and is not based on earnings or any history of operations. COMPETITION: All areas of business engaged in by the Company are highly competitive. By virtue of their considerably greater financial resources, the competing companies will have been in business for a longer period, will provide a more diversified line of products and will have a greater number of employees. DIVIDENDS: The management of the Company presently intends to follow a policy of retaining earnings, if any, for increasing the capital surplus of the Company during the Company's initial expansion of operations. Accordingly, no cash dividends will be declared during the early stages of the Company's development and no assurance can be given that the Company's earnings will permit the payments of dividends of any kind. See "Dividend Policy". TRADING MARKET: It is not anticipated that an active market will develop in the near future for the Company’s Common Stock. Consequently, investors may have difficulty in selling their shares. PROFITABILITY: It is possible the Company may incur operating losses during its early years and no assurance can be given as to the ultimate success of the Company, or as to the return, if any, that purchasers of the Company common stock will receive on their investment. Such losses might be substantial, in which case the investors of the Company © Copyright 2011 Docstoc Inc. registered document proprietary, copy not 2 Common Stock being offered, might sustain a total loss on their investment. KEY PERSONNEL: The Company is greatly dependent on the services of the essential personnel named in the Business Plan, and the loss of their services would be extremely detrimental to the Company. FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS: The operating results contemplated by the financial projections included in the Business Plan are based on certain assumptions. Management of the Company believes such assumptions to be reasonable. Events may occur, however, that will cause these assumptions to be incorrect. Because of the risks inherent in projections of this nature, no assurance is or can be given as to the accuracy of any such projections. REGULATORY MATTERS: The Company may be subject to regulation by various federal and state agencies and compliance with the requirements of such regulatory bodies may involve significant expense and effort. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to comply with such requirements, and, in such event, it may not be able to follow its proposed plan of business or to commence or continue operations in a particular jurisdiction. ADDITIONAL FINANCING: In addition to the proceeds arising from sale of the Shares, it is possible that additional financing (equity or debt) will be necessary in the future. There can be no assurance that such additional financing will be able to be arranged or, if so, upon what terms and conditions. Failure to arrange additional financing, if it were needed, would have a material adverse effect on the Company's ability to operate according to its plan of business. OPERATING HISTORY: The Company was formed in _____________and has a limited operating history. IV. ESTIMATED USE OF PROCEEDS. The gross proceeds to be received by the Company from the sale of Shares will be $____________ if the minimum number of ___________Shares are sold and $__________ if the maximum number of ___________Shares are sold. The amount of net proceeds, which the Company may receive more than the minimum amount, if any, is uncertain. The following table © Copyright 2011 Docstoc Inc. registered document proprietary, copy not 3 sets forth the estimated application by the Company of the proceeds to be derived from the sale of the Shares offered hereby. The figures herein set forth represent the best estimate of the Company and, consequently, do not purport to be a prediction of the actual use of proceeds. Minimum Offering Maximum Offering Working Capital $ ________ $ ________ Research and Development (1) $ ________ $ ________ Offering Expenses Commissions and Finder's Fees (2) $ _________ $ ________ TOTAL $________ $_________ (1) The Company anticipates that a portion of the proceeds of this offering will be used to enhance the Company’s existing products. No assurance can be given that the Company’s research and development will result in the development of additional products. (2) The Company may pay commissions to finders of up to ___ percent (__%) of the aggregate purchase price of all shares sold. See "Summary and Terms of Offering." The foregoing allocations are estimates only and are subject to revision from time to time to meet the Company's requirements. Pending full utilization of the proceeds of this offering, the Company may invest the net proceeds in insured interest-bearing savings accounts, insured United States Government obligations, insured certificates of deposit or other insured short-term investments of similar quality. The Company will incur significant expenses during the current fiscal year for salaries of employees and other overhead costs, sales and advertising, and further research and development. Assuming the maximum number of Shares are sold in this offering and assuming realization of revenues from sales of the Company's software and products, the Company believes that the net proceeds of the offering will provide the Company with working capital sufficient enough to fund the Company's present and future operations. Such belief, however, is dependent upon assumptions and variables, many of which the Company will be unable to control. Unless the Company is able to generate sufficient future earnings, it may be required, at a future date that cannot now be predicted, to obtain additional financing to continue its operations. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain such additional © Copyright 2011 Docstoc Inc. registered document proprietary, copy not 4 financing or that, if available, it will be on terms and conditions favorable or acceptable to the Company.
