Past performance of profiled securities is not indicative of future results. Companies profiled in this website may lack an active trading market for their securities and investing in such securities is highly speculative and carries a high degree of risk. Anyone investing in these companies should be able and prepared to bear a loss of his or her entire investment. The information on this website is not designed to be used as the sole basis for an investment decision. Persons using the StockHunt website should confirm to their own satisfaction the veracity of any information prior to entering into any investment. The decision to buy or sell any security of a company that may be featured by StockHunt is done purely at the reader’s own risk. Under no circumstances will StockHunt’s owners, officers, directors, partners, employees, consultants or other persons involved in the publication of this website be held liable for any losses incurred by the use of information contained in this website.
StockHunt and its owners, officers, directors, employees and affiliates may own, or may buy and sell, securities of companies profiled in this website at any time before, during, or after distribution of information on the companies by StockHunt. StockHunt and its employees and affiliates may profit in the event the shares of the companies increase in value.

The content published on this website is intended for and only to be used for reference purposes and is neither an offer nor a solicitation to purchase or sell any security or instrument or to participate in any particular trading strategy. None of the information provided through this website constitutes a recommendation that any investment or trading strategy is suitable for any person.

THERE CAN BE NO ASSURANCE THAT THE CONTENT PUBLISHED ON THIS SITE IS ACCURATE OR WITHOUT ERROR. ANY PERSON WHO MAKES — USE OF SUCH CONTENT EXPRESSLY ASSUMES ALL RISKS FROM USING THE CONTENT. In particular, StockHunt does not guarantee it reviews, and is not responsible for confirming, the accuracy of issuer documents and information submitted for inclusion on this site. The issuer and its management are primarily responsible for the accuracy of any information regarding the issuer provided on this site. INVESTORS ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO CONFIRM THE ACCURACY OF ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THIS SITE PRIOR TO MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION.
Because many securities traded over-the-counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security.
Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system or the Yellow Sheets does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.

Recognizing that transactions of the type contemplated in an engagement sometimes result in litigation and that the role of StockHunt is advisory, the Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless StockHunt and its affiliates and their irrespective officers, directors, employees, agents and controlling persons within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) or Section 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act (“Indemnified Parties”) and against any and all loss, charge, claim, damage, expense and liability whatsoever, including, but not limited to, all attorneys’ fees and expenses (hereinafter a “Claim” or “Claims”), related to or arising in any manner out of, based upon, or in connection with (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact made by the Company or any omission or alleged omission of the Company to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or (ii) any transaction, proposal or any other matter (items (i) and (ii) being hereinafter referred to as a “Matter” or “Matters”) contemplated by the engagement of StockHunt hereunder, and will promptly reimburse the Indemnified Parties for all expenses (including reasonable fees and expenses of legal counsel) as incurred in connection with the investigation of, preparation for or defense of any pending or threatened Claim related to or arising in any manner out of any Matter contemplated by the engagement of StockHunt hereunder, or any action or proceeding arising there from (collectively, “Proceedings”), whether or not such Indemnified party is a formal party to any such Proceeding.

The Company further agrees that it will not, without the prior written consent of StockHunt settle compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment in any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which indemnification may be sought hereunder (whether or not StockHunt or any Indemnified Party is an actual or potential party to such Proceeding), unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of StockHunt and each other Indemnified Party hereunder from all liability arising out of such proceeding.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, StockHunt shall not be obligated to contribute any amount hereunder that exceeds the amount of fees previously received by StockHunt pursuant to an Agreement.
The Company further agrees that no Indemnified Party shall have any liability (whether direct or indirect, in contract or tort or otherwise) to the Company for or in connection with StockHunt’s engagement hereunder except for Claims that a court of competent jurisdiction shall have determined by final judgment (and the time to appeal has expired or the last right of appeal has been denied) resulted solely or in part from the negligence, gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Party or the violation of any securities laws or regulations by an Indemnified Party.
