In other Company news, the website www.azflusa.com has been hacked presumably by its developers and the company has had to take the site down. New management is of the opinion that the site was already old and misdirected, mostly focused on forest preservation, an activity in which the company is only unofficially active as it does protect the rainforest properties in its asset base but receives no compensation for that activity as of yet. Plans to place the properties in a UN Program known as REDD+ for their preservation and to qualify for carbon offset credits are underway and will form part of the new site : www.azflus.com, however, the main focus will be the High CBD Hemp Industry, CBD products that will be sold through the site and the Forest Products Industry. The Company expects to launch the site in the coming weeks and will announce it promptly to press.
