operations of the business.

BUSINESS ACTIVITIES - (AMGLTD) will continue to develop the following business

of multimedia CD-ROM projects.


(AMGLTD) will continue to market the premastering, mastering, and

manufacturing of CD-ROM.

information technologies.

6.4 CD-ROM Authoring & Publishing Systems: (AMGLTD) will continue the development of an
authoring system, not including Lasertex.

7.0 (AMGLTD) SUMMARY STRATEGIC PLAN - The following strategies will be implemented
to build and grow the business:
7.1 (AMGLTD) will shift the emphasis from the current priority of developing and marketing a
CD-ROM authoring system to the production of CD-ROM projects. The
authoring system will be developed in phases in conjunction with current
projects under development as opposed to the existing strategy.

This will allow (AMGLTD) to utilize its current resources to develop projects which will
provide an immediate source of revenues. This will reduce the risk
normally associated with the development, and will allow (AMGLTD) to
build a steady cash flow from projects.

7.3 Another important reason for this strategy is that it will enable (AMGLTD) to actually use
the utilities of the authoring system in actual projects, making the
system more marketable when development is completed.
7.4 CD-ROM workshops will be marketed on an as needed basis to corporations and
organizations requesting on-site training and education. Because of the
easily accessible information on CD-ROM now available, mass marketing
of workshops will not be implemented.
Current market research
supports the hypothesis that when CD-ROM was in development, the
availability of information was only available for a price. However with
the current facilitation of CD-ROM technology, information is readily
available by the many businesses supporting technology. This drastically
reduces the demand for workshops that not only cost money, but also
valuable time for prospective participants.
7.5 (AMGLTD) will concentrate on developing relationships with businesses in complimentary
fields, specifically as hardware, data conversion, and retail distribution.
(AMGLTD) will also pursue the development of proprietary systems
containing hardware, software, and customized systems.
