Also, the second quarter report noted that no shares were issued in Q2 and in the process of changing transfer agents and working towards audited financials, LIGA uncovered several discrepancies the first of which led to the stop order of the 160,000,000 shares and secondly there was a legend that was illegally removed that led to the stop order. The 160,000,000 shares are under review for cancellation. The above mentioned process has uncovered the fact that the previous float number provided by the former Transfer Agent was incorrect as of March 2018. The float has remained unchanged since November 2, 2017.
