We interviewed CEO Steve Crane & are impressed. COHQ is a successful & undervalued company. We believe its Emerging Portfolio Company Program strategy & international expansion will result in substantial growth of its portfolio companies. In our opinion, it has very strong appreciation potential. Summary COHQ takes on entrepreneurs with commercially viable products & services & delivers both the capital & hands-on leadership needed for long term growth. As a business accelerator, COHQ assists high-potential entrepreneurs in building innovative, high-value companies while fast-tracking their development from inception to growth to a public market listing. COHQ invests its own capital at startup & later augments its portfolio companies‟ capital with funds from outside investors. From concept to exit, it becomes a partner to its portfolio companies – it provides the two essential ingredients needed to make companies successful – money & management. It doesn‟t operate like a typical consultant or venture investor -- it both invests & takes an extremely “hands-on” approach. It surrounds the entrepreneur with its own seasoned management & professional teams. It gradually replaces its personnel with permanent management, until it is no longer involved in operations – typically at positive cash flow. COHQ has a track record of building successful businesses & making a profit. Since 2001, it has helped develop seven companies while generating four consecutive years of growth & earnings for shareholders. On 11/15/2005, COHQ announced results for its Q3 ended 9/30/2005. The report demonstrates strong financial growth & increases in revenue, net income, asset value, total equity, net cash, & working capital. Leveraging the robust performance of its portfolio companies, CorpHQ achieved positive cash flow & increased revenue by 301%. Q3 revenue was $542,402 -- up from $135,051 in the Q ended 9/30/2004. Net income was $81,061-- up from net loss of $27,673 for the Q ended 9/30/2004. Total assets increased by about 38% to $4,994,657 from $3,614,377 on 9/30/2004. Total equity increased by about 52% to $4,966,253 from $3,261,226 on 9/30/2004. Steve Crane said: "As portfolio companies like Safeguard Technology International Inc., The Giving Card, Inc., & South Bay Financial Solutions Inc. continue to grow & increase in value, they drive growth, profitability, & shareholder value for CorpHQ. "With their strong performance we have once again closed the quarter generating income, creating earnings, reaching significant milestones, & building momentum. "We have done everything we said we would this year & are perfectly positioned to meet our objectives for 2006. Goals for next year include public offerings for two portfolio companies, funding companies via our UK subsidiary, continuing to build successful businesses, & qualifying for a NASDAQ Small Cap or AMEX listing. With another quarter of strong financial results under our belt, we are confident in our ability to accomplish all of our objectives." Portfolio Companies The "Emerging Portfolio Company Program" is designed to put uniquely valuable, early stage companies on the „fast-track‟ by structuring them to qualify for public equity capital. COHQ follows a well defined process designed to accelerate growth by highlighting strengths & marginalizing weaknesses. It surrounds the entrepreneurial team with its own seasoned management & professional teams, then rolls up its sleeves & goes to work. Its portfolio companies leverage the experience & skills of its management & professionals as well as the business processes, infrastructure, & systems developed over its history. The result is well- managed companies from startup with achievable strategies, efficient operations, & clear paths to the attainment of their goals. COHQ's revenue is generated from the receipt of cash or securities from the companies to which it agrees to provide its management consulting services. COHQ has ownership positions in & as of its voluntary financial report covering the period ended 9/30/2005, it currently provided business management services to four companies: Safeguard Technology International, Inc. (also doing business under the name “Moore Protection”), a distributor & integrator of high technology products & services for residential security. On 10/24/2005, COHQ reported that Safeguard had received a "best efforts" $1 million equity financing commitment from SG Martin Securities LLC of Rocky Point, NY, an NASD-Member broker dealer. South Bay Financial Solutions Inc., a real estate services & personal finance company. The Giving Card, Inc., an affinity credit card & merchant rebate program provider. On 10/31/2005 COHQ announced that TGC had received a "best efforts" $1 million equity financing commitment from SG Martin Securities LLC. Management anticipated that TGC will enter into a reverse merger transaction with an OTC-listed company & will receive approximately 20% of the proceeds from the SG Martin equity placement in early 2006. UK Subsidiary COHQ formed its majority-owned UK-based subsidiary CorpHQ UK, Ltd. 2/28/2005 to explore the organization & funding of new portfolio companies in the United Kingdom & to create vehicles to develop European markets for COHQ's U.S. portfolio companies. COHQ's UK personnel have focused on two primary initiatives since its formation. Their first priority has been to manage communications with COHQ's European private investors regarding the block sale of the majority ownership interest in its portfolio company, Safeguard Technology International, Inc. COHQ reported the closing of this sale on 9/26/2005. This complex series of transactions resulted in the aggregation of approximately 300 shareholders into Safeguard Shareholders LLP, a UK limited liability partnership, & generated total proceeds of $1,192,775 for COHQ. Under the direction of managing director Clive Morris, the UK operation has been a significant contributor to COHQ's successful operations during the 2005 fiscal year. Management intends to increase its budgetary allocations & hands-on involvement in this operation during 2006, & believes that the UK operation will continue to be a strong driver of COHQ's growth.

He has been called the "Superman of Madison Avenue" by Forbes Magazine, & is arguably the 20th Century‟s most accomplished progenitor of "Big Idea Advertising." He has given birth to an astonishing array of branding campaigns & imagery that have meshed high-minded design with hard-core sell. Early in his career, he pioneered the concept of "The Big Idea. Combining shrewd visual images with irreverent copy, he created a plethora of seminal advertising moments in American history, making more products famous than anyone in the marketing world. His "I Want My MTV" campaign triggered the most historic breakthrough in pop culture since the advent of cable television. He triggered the Xerox culture by showing a machine so simple even a chimpanzee could use it (1960). He saved the failing USA Today with an outrageous campaign (1982), made the totally unknown Tommy Hilfiger famous with the stroke of just one ad (1986), & transformed ESPN, perceived as a second rate sports network, into the number one powerhouse with his "In Your Face" attack (1993). Throughout his career, his talent has always been to capture the zeitgeist of an age – whether in the form of a breakthrough political campaign for Robert Kennedy (1964), his cover depicting Muhammad Ali as the Christian martyr St. Sebastian (1968), the concept & rename for the low-calorie Stouffer‟s product Lean Cuisine (1979), or those industry transforming words, "I Want My MTV," (1982). His pioneering view of the advertising person‟s role as communicator elevated the role of the art director from a back room artisan to a masthead presence (1960). Several agencies have borne the name Lois emphasizing the creative power of art directors in the management of business. In doing so, George Lois helped bring about the creative revolution in the world of advertising. By being a brilliant visual imagist & a writer & marketing thinker, his work championed the marriage of the artist to the writer. But Lois went beyond that, by validating a management role for the liberated art director, bringing about a new sense of powerful self esteem to the design community. George Lois is the only person alive who has been installed in the Art Directors Hall of Fame, the Creative hall of Fame, & a recipient of the AIGA Lifetime Achievement Medal (as well as receiving hundreds of industry awards). The legendary George Lois is an art director by craft, a communicator by instinct, a writer by imagination & an entrepreneur by character. He oversees all of COHQ's creative, advertising, & marketing activities.

Our Opinion Here's a company that, like WallStreetCorner.com, Inc., built its operation without borrowing any outside capital. Its management team is top notch. It has demonstrated that it has the skill required to rapidly increase the growth of its portfolio companies. COHQ has not yet been discovered by the investing public. As its success becomes known, its share price should begin to reflect both that success & some of its growth potential. We intend to update this profile as developments occur. In our opinion, its price could be $0.24 or greater within the next 18 months. When we first posted this profile two weeks ago, the price was $0.020 -- it moved to $0.027, a 35% increase. Since it is currently trading at $0.027, our $0.24 opinion represents a gain of about 788% -- an attractive prognosis for an 18- month period. We base our opinion on the company's impressive performance so far, the fact that it has been taking steps to broaden its ability to handle a greater number of portfolio companies, its impressive management team, & frankly on our favorable impression gained from our interviews with Steve Crane. As Larry Oakley pointed out in an editorial: "I like the fact that COHQ is helping good small-cap companies to prosper -- it's what's needed today for two reasons -- (1) Most small-cap companies that trade on the Pink Sheets, no matter how good their product or service, find it almost impossible to get the financing they need to take advantage of their potential; & (2) Small-cap companies are the backbone of most of the innovation that has blessed our country during the past several decades, & they really should be encouraged."
