We are looking forward to the time when we are able discuss the project in more detail.”

As it is, the company is also managing it’s ongoing reporting requirements as it prepares to file for a Regulation A, which can supply the company with more working capital. According to the SEC website, Regulation A allows companies to offer and sell securities to the public, but with more limited disclosure requirements than what you would currently expect from publicly reporting companies.  In comparison to registered offerings, smaller companies in earlier stages of development may be able to use this rule to more cost-effectively raise money.

With the working capital in hand we are in the best position to increase shareholder value by spending on corporate marketing and executing on our lineup of film and TV projects,” Sylvan added.

The company is also working towards uploading its financial statements within the month to obtain Pink Current Status. Volume has picked up considerably in February but the effect looks minimal on the stock price so far.
