the Commission on 01 March 2022 as a One Person Corporation. However, as indicated in
its Certificate of Incorporation, it clearly states that it is NOT AUTHORIZED to solicit
investments from the public since it has not secured prior registration and/or license from
the Commission as prescribed under Sections 8 and 28 of the SRC.

“To engage in, conduct and carry on the business of buying, selling,
distributing, marketing on wholesale and retail basis…

Thus, the above-quoted specifies that the Corporation is prohibited from taking
investments/placements as it requires secondary license from this Commission.
