The securities above were offered and sold to an exemption from the registration requirements under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder since, among other things, the transactions did not involve a public offering and the securities were acquired for investment purposes only and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution of them.

Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

On August 31, 2017, the Company filed a Withdrawal of Certificate of Designation for its original Series A Preferred Stock with the Secretary of State of Nevada.

On or about September 7, 2017, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation for its new Series A Preferred Stock with the Secretary of State of Nevada designating 1,000 shares of its authorized preferred stock as Series A Preferred Stock. The shares of Series A Preferred Stock have a par value of $0.001 per share. The shares of Series A Preferred Stock do not have a dividend right or rate, or liquidation preference, and are not convertible into shares of common stock.

For so long as any shares of the Series A Preferred Stock remain issued and outstanding, the holders thereof, voting separately as a class, shall have the right, on or after September 7, 2017, to vote in an amount equal to 51% of the total vote (representing a super majority voting power) with respect to any proposal relating to (a) any amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation changing the name of the Company, (b) increasing the authorized share capital of the Company, and (c) effecting any reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of capital stock. Such vote shall be determined by the holder(s) of a majority of the then issued and outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock. For example, if there are 10,000 shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding at the time of such shareholder vote, the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock, voting separately as a class, will have the right to vote an aggregate of 10,408 shares, out of a total number of 20,408 shares voting.

The shares of the Series A Preferred Stock shall be automatically redeemed by the Company at their par value on the first to occur of the following: (i) a date one hundred twenty (120) days after the effective date of the Certificate, (ii) on the date that Mr. Beifuss ceases, for any reason, to serve as officer, director or consultant of the Company, or (iii) on the date that the Company’s shares of common stock first trade on any national securities exchange provided that the listing rules of any such exchange prohibit preferential voting rights of a class of securities of the Company, or listing on any such national securities exchange is conditioned upon the elimination of the preferential voting rights of the Series A Preferred Stock set forth in this Certificate of Designation.

Additionally, the Company is prohibited from adopting any amendments to the Company’s Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, as amended, making any changes to the Certificate of Designation establishing the Series A Preferred Stock, or effecting any reclassification of the Series A Preferred Stock, without the affirmative vote of at least 66-2/3% of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock. However, the Company may, by any means authorized by law and without any vote of the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, make technical, corrective, administrative or similar changes to such Certificate of Designation that do not, individually or in the aggregate, adversely affect the rights or preferences of the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock.

This brief description of the Certificate of Designation is only a summary of the material terms and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of the Certificate of Designation as attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 3.2.
