On June 26, 2017, our former controlling shareholder, Coqui Radio Pharmaceuticals, Corp. (
), sold 9,947,490 shares of common stock to Irwin Eskanos for a purchase price of $250,000. The source of the funds used for the acquisition was the personal funds of Mr. Eskanos. Concurrently with this sale of controlling interest, our board of directors appointed Mr. Eskanos as our new sole Director, President, Secretary, Treasurer, CEO, and CFO, and accepted the resignation of Carmen I. Bigles, as discussed in Item 5.02, below. Also concurrently with the sale of controlling interest, Coqui agreed pay in full, and indemnify us for, our outstanding liabilities as of the date of the sale.
There are no arrangements known to the company, the operation of which may, at a subsequent date, result in a further change in control of the registrant.
Following the change in control, the following table sets forth certain information known to us with respect to the beneficial ownership of our common stock as of June 26, 2017 by (1) all persons who are beneficial owners of 5% or more of our voting securities, (2) each director, (3) each executive officer, and (4) all directors and executive officers as a group. The information regarding beneficial ownership of our common stock has been presented in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Under these rules, a person may be deemed to beneficially own any shares of capital stock as to which such person, directly or indirectly, has or shares voting power or investment power, and to beneficially own any shares of our capital stock as to which such person has the right to acquire voting or investment power within 60 days through the exercise of any stock option or other right. The percentage of beneficial ownership as to any person as of a particular date is calculated by dividing (a) (i) the number of shares beneficially owned by such person plus (ii) the number of shares as to which such person has the right to acquire voting or investment power within 60 days by (b) the total number of shares outstanding as of such date, plus any shares that such person has the right to acquire from us within 60 days. Including those shares in the tables does not, however, constitute an admission that the named stockholder is a direct or indirect beneficial owner of those shares. Unless otherwise indicated, each person or entity named in the table has sole voting power and investment power (or shares that power with that persons spouse) with respect to all shares of capital stock listed as owned by that person or entity.
Except as otherwise indicated, all Shares are owned directly and the percentage shown is based on 10,047,495 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.
