Quote: This was not STBV's first Reg A rodeo. On 11 December 2012, the company filed its initial 1-A, with the intention of raising $5 million by selling 125 million shares at $0.04 a share. That filing was deemed effective, and Strategic presumably began selling stock. But on 29 July 2013, a new 1-A appeared. In it, it was noted that "the Issuer is currently making an offering of its shares at $0.04 per share pursuant to an effective Offering Statement on Form 1-A. If and when the current Offering Statement is approved, the Issuer will discontinue that offering." With this new "replacement"offering, the company had begun to slide down the slippery slope of dilution: 500 million shares would be sold at $0.01 per share, still for a total of $5 million. With the latest "replacement," in which 30 billion shares will be offered at $0.0001 per share, the slippery slope has turned into an Olympic bobsled run.
Quote: Frankly, it doesn't look as if it has one. The history of the Reg A offerings isn't difficult to interpret. Fellner is desperate for money. The company's current financial situation is unknown, because Reg A does not require audited financials; even the unaudited numbers offered are nearly six months old. Clearly the first two offerings met with little success: not enough stock sold at $0.04, and then not enough sold at $0.01. Now a fire sale is in progress at $0.0001, with a total planned issuance of 30 billion shares.
