On June 26, 2017, our former controlling shareholder, Coqui Radio Pharmaceuticals, Corp. (“Coqui”), 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. As a result of this transaction, control of the Company has passed to Mr. Eskanos (the “ Change of Control ”).  Immediately following the closing of these transactions, the shares acquired by Mr. Eskanos comprised approximately 99.00% of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Company.

77

President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Secretary and Director


The following biographical information on the new directors and officers of the Company is presented below:


Irwin Eskanos has been a licensed attorney in California for over fifty years. He recently retired from the firm of Eskanos & Adler, which he founded in 1969.  Mr. Eskanos’ practice focused on commercial law and collections, representing major Fortune 500 companies and other businesses engaged in extensions of credit. He has been actively involved in the Commercial Law League of America, The National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees, the founding and development of the National Association of Retail Collection Attorneys (NARCA) and state and local Bar Associations including the Alameda County Bar, the San Francisco County Bar Association, the Contra Costa Bar Association and the California Creditor’s Bar Association (which Mr. Eskanos was an active participant in the founding in 2005).  In addition, Mr. Eskanos has authored practice books for lawyers for the University of California’s Continuing Education of the Bar.


As part of his service in the legal industry, Mr. Eskanos also served as a judge pro tem in the Oakland Piedmont Municipal Court, arbitrated actions as an Arbitrar appointed by the American Arbitration Association, and served for many years as an Arbitrar before the bar association being a member of the panel adjudicating disputes between clients and their attorneys.  Mr. Eskanos continues to maintain a presence in the collections industry by maintaining his active participation in Alliance Credit Services, a national debt buyer.  He is an active member of the Debt Buyers Association, which is the industry group of companies involved in purchasing “delinquent debt.”  Following his recent retirement from the law firm of Eskanos & Adler, Mr. Eskanos has been engaged in providing pro bono work for those needing legal representation but without the financial ability to pay for the same.  Mr. Eskanos is a graduate of the University of San Francisco School of Law.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Committees of the Board of Directors

We do not have a standing nominating, compensation or audit committee.  Rather, our full Board of Directors performs the functions of these committees. We do not believe it is necessary for our Board of Directors to appoint such committees because the volume of matters that come before our Board of Directors for consideration permits the directors to give sufficient time and attention to such matters to be involved in all decision making. Additionally, because our Common Stock is not listed for trading or quotation on a national securities exchange, we are not required to have such committees. Our Board of Directors, which performs the functions of an audit committee, does not have a member who qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” within the definition of Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K.


The Board does not have a nominating committee because the Board does not believe that a defined policy with regard to the consideration of candidates recommended by shareholders is necessary at this time because it believes that, given the limited scope of the Company’s operations, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until the Company’s business operations are at a more advanced level.  There are no specific, minimum qualifications that the Board believes must be met by a candidate recommended by the Board.  Currently, the entire Board decides on nominees, on the recommendation of any member of the Board, followed by the Board's review of the candidates’ resumes and interviews of candidates.  Based on the information gathered, the Board then makes a decision on whether to recommend the candidates as nominees for director.  The Company does not pay any fee to any third party or parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying or evaluating potential nominees.

The Board does not have a compensation committee and is not required to have such a committee because the Company is not a “listed company” under SEC rules.  The Company has no formal compensation program for its executive officers, directors or employees.

Director Independence

The Board has determined that the current directors of the Company are not “independent” directors.  The Company is not a "listed company" under SEC rules and is therefore not required to have independent directors.


Shareholder Communications


There has not been any defined policy or procedure requirements for stockholders to submit recommendations or nomination for directors. The Board does not believe that a defined policy with regard to the consideration of candidates recommended by stockholders is necessary at this time because it believes that, given the limited scope of the Company’s operations, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until the Company’s business operations are at a more advanced level. There are no specific, minimum qualifications that the Board believes must be met by a candidate recommended by the Board. Currently, the entire Board decides on nominees, on the recommendation of any member of the Board followed by the Board’s review of the candidates’ resumes and interview of candidates. Based on the information gathered, the Board then makes a decision on whether to recommend the candidates as nominees for director. The Company does not pay any fee to any third party or parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying or evaluating potential nominee.

The Company does not have any restrictions on shareholder nominations under its articles of incorporation or by-laws. The only restrictions are those applicable generally under Delaware corporate law and the federal proxy rules, to the extent such rules are or become applicable. The Board will consider suggestions from individual shareholders, subject to evaluation of the person's merits. Stockholders may communicate nominee suggestions directly to the Board, accompanied by biographical details and a statement of support for the nominees. The suggested nominee must also provide a statement of consent to being considered for nomination. There are no formal criteria for nominees.


Because the management and directors of the Company are the same persons, the Board has determined not to adopt a formal methodology for communications from shareholders on the belief that any communication would be brought to the Board’s attention by virtue of the capacities served by Mr. Eskanos.

Meetings of the Board of Directors


Our Board held no formal meetings during the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015. We do not presently have a policy regarding director attendance at meetings.


Legal Proceedings

To the Company’s knowledge, there are no material proceedings to which any current officer or director of the Company is a party adverse to the Company or has a material interest adverse to the Company.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

Transactions with related persons

1.

The Company has distributed all of the net proceeds of its private placements to Coquí Radio Pharmaceuticals, Corp. (“Coquí”), which advances have not been documented by any loan agreements or notes. Additionally, the Company's former Chief Executive Officer, who is the brother of Ms. Bigles, was a principal of Pariter which raised capital in the private placements and has received compensation directly from the private placement fees.


2.

In 2014, the Company has distributed $4,754,961 of the net proceeds from the sales of its common stock in its private placements to Coquí, which was recorded as distribution to shareholder of additional paid-in capital.


3.

During the period from January 2017 to March, 2017, Coqui entered into an Exchange Agreement with 48 investors (“Coqui Shareholders”) who previously acquired shares of common stock, par value of $0.001 per share of our Company (the “SMSA Crane Shares”), in a private placement from SMSA Crane, at a price of $3.31 per share. The 48 investors agreed to exchange their SMSA Crane Shares for an equal value of shares of Coqui’s common stock, par value $0.1 per share (the “Coqui Shares”), and Coqui agreed to proceed with the proposed exchange. As a result, 1,663,443 SMSA Crane Shares and 151,300 warrants issued to the placement agent were exchanged for Coqui Shares and warrants and were cancelled.


4.

On April 5, 2017, the Board of Directors approved the cancellation of 1,611,743 SMSA Crane Shares held by the Coqui Shareholders and the cancellation of 51,700 SMSA Crane Shares that were issuable to three Coqui Shareholders but that were not yet issued and recorded as outstanding by the Company’s transfer agent as of the date of the Exchange Agreement.


5.

On May 16, 2017, the Board of Directors approved the issuance of 47,490 shares of its common shares to Coquí, based on the private placement share price of $3.31 in satisfaction for the total debt owed to Coqui of $157,195.


The Company’s Board conducts an appropriate review of and oversees all related party transactions on a continuing basis and reviews potential conflict of interest situations where appropriate.  The Board has not adopted formal standards to apply when it reviews, approves or ratifies any related party transaction.  However, the Board believes that the related party transactions are fair and reasonable to the Company and on terms comparable to those reasonably expected to be agreed to with independent third parties for the same goods and/or services at the time they are authorized by the Board.


LEGAL PROCEEDINGS


From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business.  However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business.  We are currently not aware of any such legal proceedings or claims that we believe will have a material adverse affect on our business, financial condition or operating results.


WHERE YOU CAN FIND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

We are required to file annual, quarterly and special reports, proxy statements and other information with the SEC.  You may read and copy any document we file at the SEC’s public reference rooms at 100 F Street, N.E, Washington, D.C. 20549.  You may also obtain copies of the documents at prescribed rates by writing to the Public Reference Section of the SEC at 100 F Street, N.E., Room 1580, Washington, D.C. 20549.  Please call the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330 for more information on the operation of the public reference rooms.  Copies of our SEC filings are also available to the public from the SEC’s web site at.
