We are awaiting confirmation of service in the Rontan legal matter. It is a very precise process and I am very happy with the work being done by BSF and their partners in Brazil. I am currently in New York with potential financiers for GDSI. I was alerted today when I landed that there was a rumor that I had stepped down. Obviously that is a fabrication. I am extremely focused and committed to the Company. Can’t wait to release more news as it becomes available. Thanks again.


February 15, 2018 at 7:56am

I have identified a potential acquisition target in the access security area. The Company is located in North America and has unaudited numbers of approximately $4.85M. Their business is primarily
government related. This acquisition is in the very early and preliminary stage, with due diligence on-going at this time. I will keep everyone updated via FB, 8K, and/or Press Release.


February 11, 2018 at 5:26pm

The team is beginning work on it's acquisition strategy. Ross Trevino and I will be attending an M&A conference on March 20-22, 2018 in Palm Beach, FL. As mentioned in my shareholder letter press release, we will be focusing on two areas: Infrastructure Technology and Cyber security.
The company has previously identified some candidates in the infrastructure area. I am working with an east coast fund on identifying targets in the cyber security area. Although none of these opportunities are imminent, we have to begin the process now due to their lengthy lead times.
I will be providing feedback from the San Francisco conference in early March.


February 8, 2018

I was very happy to post today's 8K on Tuesday's court order in the Southern District of Florida concerning the time line for the Rontan litigation. The judge has laid out a very aggressive schedule. Our attorneys are very pleased. We will be going to mediation in about 5 1/2 weeks.
I will keep everyone posted on our progress. Be sure to stay tuned for updates on the SEC filing issue. We have a good handle on getting that put to bed. We will keep it trading!

January 11, 2018

I will be attending Token Fest at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on March 15-16, 2018. I'm looking forward to delivering updates to shareholders. I also look forward to meeting any shareholders who may be attending.

GDSI CEO William Delgado Issues Update to Shareholders

West Palm Beach, FL, February 6, 2018-- Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (OTC:GDSI), a company that is positioning itself as a leader in comprehensive security and technology solutions, issues the following update from its President and CEO William Delgado.  

Dear Fellow Shareholder,

After nineteen months of work, thousands of man hours, and a lot of money, we were able to provide an update through last week’s news concerning litigation pertaining to the acquisition of Rontan and a very important financing. These two steps are critical in the company regaining stability and the ability for a path forward. Due to the extremely complex and confidential nature of the legal issues, I have been unable to update everyone on these issues. In this shareholder update, I am going to focus on two items; 1.) Where we are now  2.) Where are we going?

Where are we now? Since May of 2016, two of our most significant achievements have been retaining the Boies Schiller Flexner law firm related to the Rontan litigation and the institutional financing. We are thrilled that BSF has seen the merits of our legal position. We have also been able to achieve an institutional financing which we announced last week. We have already received $300,000 and these funds are non-toxic, non-convertible and will never be convertible into equity.

Legal Work: I would like to add a few more words about the quality of the legal representation we have had over the past 19 months. Brinen and Associates has done an excellent job representing our company in several different lawsuits. We expect all of these lawsuits to be resolved favorably for GDSI shareholders. The Ramsay/Deckle/NACSV litigation has been settled and dismissed. The other two pending lawsuits by Hull and Lopez have been, in my opinion, trending in our favor. Please do your own due diligence as all of the filings related to these cases are on PACER. The quality of Brinen and Associates work has been vital to our survival as a company.

The ability of the two primary lawyers that will be representing us related to the Rontan litigation speaks for itself. The lead counsel in the lawsuit will be Carlos Sires. Mr. Sires is a partner at BSF working out of their Fort Lauderdale office. Mr. Sires specializes in commercial litigation, primarily complex commercial litigation with a nexus to Latin America, including Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuala and the Dominican Republic. Mr. Sires has represented officers and directors in securities litigation. Mr. Sires has appeared in numerous Federal and State courts, Florida’s appellate courts, and in the First, Second, Third and Eleventh Circuits of Appeals.

William Isaacson will also be a part of our counsel in the Rontan lawsuit. Mr. Isaacson is a partner in the Washington DC office of BSF. Mr. Isaacson is a 2015 American Lawyer Litigator of the Year, a three-time winner of the American Lawyer Litigator of the Week and a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Global Competition Review, the world’s leading antitrust and competition law journal and news service said this about Mr. Isaacson, “Arguably no antitrust lawyer in recent memory has had as much success for both plaintiffs and defendants as Boies Schiller partner Bill Isaacson.” In 2013, Mr. Isaacson was trial counsel in the first antitrust action against Chinese companies for cartel conduct related to products sold in the United States, winning a $162 million judgment, and an additional $33 million from settling defendants.

Liabilities and SEC Issues: During this time, we have also reduced past due liabilities by approximately $516,000. We have settled with the three remaining “Toxic” financing lenders and there will be no more conversions under those notes. As per the SEC actions, the initial action undertaken in August of 2016 has been settled and finalized on January 2, 2018 by the judge handling the case. I will be filing an 8K shortly. The Company currently has an outstanding balance due to the SEC of approximately $103,000. I am currently working on getting this fine and disgorgement penalty paid as soon as possible. In late December of 2017, the SEC also notified the Company it would be holding a hearing regarding the Company’s late filing issues. Our legal team has done a great job of communicating with the SEC regarding the filing of our financial statements. The Company, during this time, has been unable to let anyone outside of the Company, including the SEC, review any information regarding the Rontan lawsuit and the financing due to confidentiality reasons. We intend to notify the SEC in our filings of these events. The legal issue with Rontan has had a significant financial impact on the Company and our ability to file timely financials. The Company has completed a significant portion of the filing work internally, but we have not had the financial capability to pay our auditors. With our financing, we will start that external process immediately. We hope that the SEC will see the damage caused by this event and its impact on our filings.

Where are we going? The Company is currently negotiating a contract for one mobile command center utilizing our subsidiary NACSV. It should be noted that this contract is in the negotiation stage only. If the Company is able to procure the contract (Approximately $450,000), we will announce it in a separate press release and 8K.

After the filings are completed and our balance sheet is in order, I intend to move into two areas: Infrastructure Engineering Technology and Cybersecurity Technology. I believe that these two areas will provide the greatest long term value for the shareholders.  I want to stress that this is the plan moving forward. Any merger and acquisition targets will require additional financing and increased management support. I believe that our management and advisory teams, with the proper financing, can attract and enhance company(s) in these areas.

In closing, I want to thank the shareholders who have stood by me and the team during this incredibly difficult time. I hope that I can restore your faith in our ability to make GDSI successful.

William J. Delgado, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GDSI, Issues Press Release Regarding new Institutional Financing

Global Digital Solutions Inc. Secures $1,200,000 in Financing from New York-based Institution

West Palm Beach, FL, February 2, 2018-- Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (OTC:GDSI), a company that is positioning itself as a leader in comprehensive security and technology solutions, has announced it has secured $1,200,000 in financing from a New York-based institution.   

The financing is non-dilutive, non-toxic and is not convertible and will never be convertible into any equity of the Company. The financing will be distributed in tranches based on pre-determined milestones as developed by the institution. The first $300,000 has been received and has been used to pay a portion of the Company’s previously announced liabilities and some legal expenses not associated with the Rontan lawsuit. Global Digital Solutions expects to be able to meet the next milestone within 90 days.


The New York-based institution has never invested in any micro-cap stock in their corporate history. The principals of the New York-based institution are leaders in their field and are well known as individuals that have been pioneers in building a particular industry here in the United States.

William J. Delgado, GDSI’s CEO, noted that “This financing is a validation by a well-respected New York-based institution of their confidence in our future plans. It is quite rare that a company of our size gets a non-dilutive, non-convertible infusion of capital but we were able to achieve this. As we announced just two days ago, we have engaged Boies Schiller Flexner LLP and initiated legal action against Grupo Rontan Electro Metalurgica, S.A. and principal shareholders, Joao Bolzan and Jose Bolzan.”

William J. Delgado, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GDSI, Issues Shareholder Letter Regarding Recent SEC Developments and Current Status of Previously-Announced Plans

PALM BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 17, 2016

William J. Delgado, newly-named Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Global Digital Solutions (OTC: GDSI) a company that is positioning itself as a leader in providing comprehensive security and technology solutions, today released a Shareholder Letter
announcing the filing of an 8-K regarding an SEC action against the Company and two of its former officers and directors. In addition, the letter provides updated information on previously-communicated issues and initiatives. The text of the letter follows:

August 16, 2016

RE: Letter to Shareholders

Dear Fellow Shareholder,

As you may know, The Company filed an 8-K on Tuesday, August 16, 2016 outlining a civil action being brought by the SEC against the Company and two of its former officers and directors. The Company has retained legal counsel to evaluate the complaint and I will attempt
to keep the shareholders updated to the extent allowable by law. It should be noted that the Company’s liability extends only to the alleged acts of these former officers and directors as employees the company. No other personnel, employees or contractors are so named.

Since issuing the shareholder letter on May 15, 2016, Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) has been working on the priority items I set out in the letter.

(1) Cleaning up the Company’s balance sheet and becoming current with our public filings.

Status: We have made good progress on these items, but will not be able to give specifics until sometime in September.

(2) Reviewing our strategic alternatives, including our recent negotiations and agreements with our announced acquisition.

Status: The management team of myself, V.P. of Business Development, Ross Trevino, and advisory board member, Matt Kelly, have made substantial progress in this area. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide details at this time, both for legal and strategic
. I look forward to disclosing our information to you at the appropriate time. Rest assured our management team, including Chief Financial Officer, Jerry Gomolski, and Chief Technology Officer, Gary Gray, are working hard to get all of the work completed.

This summer has been one of the most challenging periods of my entire career. Please know there are significant financial and legal hurdles still in our path; we will be relying on our management experience and will require outside help, i.e. financing, in order to achieve our goals.

Your understanding and support 
is greatly appreciated.


/s/ William J. Delgado

                                             All stock board posts are the opinion of the posters, are no substitute for your own research, and should not be relied upon for stock trading or any other purpose.
Please keep your posts on topic because your message(s) will probably be deleted when:

* Posting any content that is off-topic to the stock, which is the subject of the board;
*Posting focused on Admins, Moderators, Users, or post deletions are also off-topic;

Regarding a valid due diligence post or personal stock opinion that includes a personal attack or other iHub stock board rule violation within it:

When a post is 99% on-topic and 1% is a personal attack or another iHub rule violation, the post will be removed. Personal attacks, vulgarity, politics, religion, etc. are violations of iHub's rules (refer to iHub Handbook), disrespectful of other users, and are unwelcome. These types of gratuitous comments only create noise and dilute the quality of the board. When a user attacks another poster, other participants inevitably feel the need to respond, either agreeing or defending, then others feel the need to respond to these…and so nauseam. With such, a board will devolve into personal attacks and discussions about other users, noise, signals, etc. There other sites available that allow these types of posts and that is the place for topics of conversation beyond iHub's stated stock board rules. The goal of iHub is to have all information whether positive, neutral or negative, discussed in a civil manner, free of violations.

iHub board users do not have to provide any proof, quotations or external links when offering their stock opinions.
