The HTDS' merger negotiations with the EU based stem cell research company are well underway. The HTDS representatives have scheduled meetings, and the start of Due Diligence for November 23-25, 2009. HTDS management is exploring various options of this lucrative deal. The scenario which HTDS management is currently favoring includes a hybrid of technology - revenue sharing model. This it would achieve through its Slavica Bio Chem subsidiary which would earn HTDS licensing revenues. This hybrid mechanism merger would leave HTDS' share structure undisturbed while at the same time HTDS' would earn fees for technology and services exchanged.

Audited statements are one of the requirements the company must obtain to meet the OTCBB listing threshold. HTDS management does not foresee any issues in meeting the audit requirements. HTDS management has a prearranged OTCBB vehicle already ready formulated and capitalized for its operating subsidiaries and the soon to be announced merger up list to OTCBB.
