Board Approves Stock Buyback in the Open Market up to $0.01 per share
NEWTOWN, CT–(Marketwired – Oct 30, 2017) – Halitron, Inc. (the “Company,” “Halitron”) (OTC: HAON), a multisector holding company, today announced that the Board has approved a stock buyback of Halitron’s common shares in the open market up to a stock price of $0.01.
Management and the Board agree that since the acquisition of The Hopp Companies, Inc, which is a profitable company projecting positive cash flows from operations, these initiatives should allow Management to be able to deploy cash flow in a manner to increase shareholder value by engaging in a stock buyback program to place shares back into treasury.
Previously, Management had announced the efforts to complete an audit to up list to the OTC Markets QB level. To complete the OTC QB application, the following must be achieved:
Step 1: Determine Eligibility
Audited annual financials prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP by a PCAOB auditor. (Regulation A Companies are exempt from the initial requirement).
Be Alternative Reporting.
Have a minimum bid price of $0.01 as of the close of business for each of the last 30 calendar days.
May not be subject to bankruptcy or reorganization proceedings.
Must have an SEC registered Transfer Agent.
Meet Corporate Governance Standards: a) Have a board of directors that includes at least two Independent Directors; and b) Have an Audit Committee, a majority of the members of which are Independent Directors on board independence (Alternative Reporting only).
Step 2: Submit OTCQB Application Materials along with an application Fee ($2,500).
Step 3: Upload Documents through http://www.otcmarkets.com/services/companies/otcqb/apply
Alternative Reporting Companies: Disclosure must be posted through www.OTCIQ.com for the prior two years pursuant to the OTCQB Standards along with Verified Company Profile and CEO/CFO Certification document.
Step 4: Submit the Annual Fee ($10,000).
Step 5: Begin Trading on OTCQB.
After reviewing the guideline issued by OTC Markets on an Alternate Reporting Pink to up list to the QB, Management feels that following the guidelines rather than filing an expensive Super Form 10-K or Form 10 with the SEC, will be more efficient and less time consuming. Management is hoping to complete all of these requirements by the end the first quarter of 2018.

About CEO Bernard Findley
For the past 20 years, Bernard Findley has been working with small- to mid-sized businesses. The first part of his career was spent capitalizing on growth opportunities, during which time he would build up sales and sell recovering businesses. Over the past five years, Findley has rolled up and subsequently exited 16 brands that, without his guidance, were on track to go bankrupt or out of business. Today, these brands still exist and are operating under new owners.
While growth initiatives are very different than turnaround work, Findley has gained extremely valuable knowledge in recent years regarding how to take advantage of strengths within a business, reshape the business plan, and then execute on the deliverables. He has worked in many industries, such as medical devices, promotional products, and direct marketing, to name a few.
Vast Portfolio of Holdings
