("SMC" or the "Company") (OTC: SMCE), a versatile incubator company focused on acquisition and support of proven commercialized financial services and technology (Fintech) companies, is pleased to announce the retirement of an additional $436,884 of debt in the form of consulting fees and management conversion of accrued earnings (the “Debt”). The Debt retirement will be reflected in the Company's third quarter 2024 financial statements.

The Debt is comprised of $300,374 held by one of our non-affiliate debt holders. The balance of $136,500 is comprised of accrued consulting fees held by current insiders, and all of the Debt was converted to the Company’s common shares at $0.002 per share, for a total of 68,250,000. All share issuances are restricted in accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Rule 144.

“We believe that the debt retirement and conversion of $136,500 in accrued consulting fees into restricted equity is further proof of management’s commitment to the Company. In light of SMC’s progress with the Chaintrade.AI acquisition and the developments at Fyniti, management felt that our stock is extremely undervalued. Our officers were presented with the opportunity to increase our equity position at these levels and chose to execute on it. I still consider the company to be extremely undervalued Management will continue to find ways to reduce SMC’s long-term debt, minimize shareholder dilution and increase shareholder value.”
