directors will be appointed; Mr. John Howell as CEO and director.

Deep, Inc. is a significant milestone for Digerati that is crucial to
the future success of the Company, for both our current shareholders
and customers. Waste Deep, Inc.'s current operational subsidiaries
have the revenue and earnings that will enhance our shareholders'
value. Our current management team will be able to focus on gaining
momentum in the marketplace through Digerati's existing operating
subsidiaries. Current management will retain control of the existing
operations within a new subsidiary named Shift8 Technologies, Inc.,
and will remain as such until the subsidiary's value makes financial
and operational sense to operate independently."

combination provides what we believe to be an increased value for
current shareholders. Oil field services organizations in the Bakken
