November 1, 2005 - GPSDC signs gas lease and creates new
The GPSDC Board of Directors recently signed a lease for gas
rights on the club property. This will not involve any physical drilling
on the property itself. As a result of the lease and the possible income
it may provide, the Board decided to split the shares of the corporation into
All new shares purchased from GPSDC after November 1, 2005
will be designated as Class B shares and will not receive any dividends that may
become payable in the future due to proceeds from the mineral rights of the
property. These shares will continue to be sold for $750.
All shares that are not specifically designated as Class B
shares will be considered to be Class A shares. These shares will retain
full rights to receive any future dividends that may be declared by the Board.
At this time, the Board does not expect any royalties from the lease to be
sufficient to declare any dividends. As of November 1, 2005 a total of 553
Class A shares have been issued.
Shares that are transferred to another shareholder will
retain their class status when they are reissued.
If you have any questions, please contact any of the Board of Directors for
