ALPHARETTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / April 3, 2023 / RushNet, Inc (OTC PINK:RSHN), (the "Company") announces FINRA Denial of Planned Spin-Off.

RushNet, Inc., Monday, April 3, 2023, Press release picture

The management of RushNet, Inc. is disappointed to announce that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, FINRA, which is charged with regulating the trading of Over the Counter (OTC) securities has denied the Company's application to approve a spin-off of its heliosDx subsidiary to shareholder. Without this necessary approval from FINRA, it is not possible to distribute the shares of heliosDx to the shareholders of the company.

FINRA denied approving the planned spin-off of heliosDx specifically due to RushNet's failure to file financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the fiscal periods ending September 30th, 2001 through December 31st, 2002. The company appealed this decision to FINRA's Uniform Practice Code Committee, which subsequently denied the appeal. The necessary information to file these financial statements dramatically predates the existing management of the company and is not available. As a result of the nature of this denial by FINRA, it is reasonable to expect that future corporate action submissions will be denied as well.

In theory, the company could appeal FINRA's decision to the SEC. However, the time and expense of the appeal, as well as the financial burden this would place on the company render this option unrealistic.

Ashley Sweat, the CEO of heliosDx, expressed his significant disappointment at the situation. Having spent a significant amount of time, money, and energy to correct the deficiencies discovered in RushNet following its acquisition of heloisDx, Mr. Sweat stated "I was completely unaware of all the problems with RushNet, Inc. when I agreed to the acquisition. A significant amount of money has been spent correcting problems that should not have existed." Mr. Sweat further stated the company is currently evaluating its options for the future.
