Section 9. To reorganize, as an incorporator, or cause to be organized under the laws of any state of the United States of America, or of any commonwealth, territory, agency or instrumentality of the United States of America, or of any foreign country, a corporation or corporations for the purpose of conducting and promoting any business or purpose for which corporations may be organized, and to dissolve, wind up, liquidate, merge or consolidate any such corporation or corporations or to cause the same to be dissolved, wound up, liquidated, merged or consolidated,
Section 10. To do each and every thing necessary, suitable or proper for the accomplishment of any of the purposes or the attainment of any of the objects herein enumerated, or which shall at any time appear conductive to or expedient for the protection or benefit of the corporation.
Section 1. The Aggregate number of shares which this corporation shall have authority to Issue is three hundred million (300,000,000) shares, consisting of (a) two hundred fifty million (250,000,000) shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) and (b) fifty million (50,000,000) shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”), issuable in one or more series as hereinafter provided.
Section 1.1 Preferred Stock. Shares of Preferred Stock may be issued in any number of series from time to time by the Board of Directors, subject to the rights of any holders of Preferred Stock as described herein, and the Board of Directors, pursuant to the Corporation’s Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, is expressly authorized to fix by resolution or resolutions the designations and the voting powers, preferences, rights and qualifications, limitations or restrictions, if any, of the preferred stock, in one or more series.

The Corporation shall not be obligated to issue certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock resulting from the Reverse Split unless the certificates evidencing such shares of Common Stock are either delivered to the Corporation or its transfer agent as provided above, or the holder notifies the Corporation or its transfer agent that such certificates have been lost, stolen or destroyed and executes an agreement satisfactory to the Corporation to indemnify the Corporation from any loss incurred in connection with such certificates. The Corporation shall as soon as practicable after such delivery (or such agreement and indemnification in the case of a lost, stolen or destroyed certificate) issue and deliver at such office to such holder of Common Stock a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Common Stock, as the case may be, to which he or she shall be entitled as aforesaid.
The address of the registered office and registered agent of the corporation is Gateway Enterprises, 3230 E. Flamingo Road, Suite 156, Las Vegas, Nevada, zip code 89121, Clark county. The corporation may maintain such other office, either within or out of the State of Nevada, as the Board of Directors may from time to time determine or the business of the corporation may require.
