Group has 145,001,117 common shares issued and outstanding. Assuming that all
of the outstanding options and warrants are exercised, 161,661,259 common
shares of Homeland Group will be issued and outstanding on a fully diluted
basis.
    The board of directors of Homeland Group now consists of Tom Griffis,
