8000 Inc (EIGH.PK) Statement to Shareholders –February 8, 2011
8000 Inc (EIGH.pk) submits evidence of significant naked short position in its quoted stock to the SEC.
EIGH has advised the SEC Staff that it will issue a public statement about the proposed merger as soon as it has concluded its due diligence. Meanwhile, the Staff has indicated that, consistent with their policies in the area, it is aware of the Company’s and shareholder concern and proposed resultant corporate actions. In that context, we understand the SEC Staff can’t provide legal advice or otherwise express any views on the proposed corporate actions.
• As to the Company’s proposed merger as outlined; or
• To the Company’s intent to request shareholders return their common stock certificates for recall (i.e., cancellation)
Because of the concerns expressed above, the Company will not release the name of the target entity until after its due diligence review is concluded and upon the effective date of the share exchange.
The contemplated merger and associated share exchange between the two companies will be undertaken solely through the receipt of 8000 Inc. stock certificates with the pro rata stock in the new entity being issued electronically and directly to the shareholder account pursuant to an independent opinion of counsel. Absent a surprise, the Company expects to issue direct instructions to its Transfer Agent near term, most likely in the next two weeks. Shareholders are asked, in the interim, to request physical delivery of their 8000 Inc. stock certificates from their brokerage firms in preparation for the contemplated merger and exchange. Full details of the process will be issued at the end of the due diligence review period as stated. The certificates will be verified against the Transfer Agent’s records. No exchange of stock in the new, combined Company will be undertaken without the provision of a physical certificate. Through this process, the Company hopes to address the shareholder concerns and in so doing progress to a higher quotation and accountability.
EIGH will continue to keep its shareholders apprised as events unfold. Also keep updated on 8000 Inc. developments on Facebook or Twitter.
