ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

GENERAL

         Trimol Group, Inc. (the "Company" or "Registrant"), was organized on
May 6, 1953 under the laws of the State of Delaware. Although since its
incorporation the Company has engaged in several different businesses and has
effected several name changes, for at least three years prior to January 6,
1998, the Company did not engage in any material operations.

THE REORGANIZATION

         Pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization effective on
January 6, 1998, (the "Reorganization Agreement"), by and among the Company,
Edward F. Cowle, H. DeWorth Williams, then officers, directors and principal
stockholders of the Company, and Gold Hill Mines, Inc., an Idaho corporation,
then a principal stockholder of the Company (that was majority owned by Mr.
Cowle), and Magnum Associates Ltd. ("Magnum"), a corporation organized under the
laws of Ireland, and Starbeam, Ltd. ("Starbeam"), a corporation organized under
the laws of Ireland (Magnum and Starbeam shall hereinafter sometimes be
collectively referred to as the "Target Stockholders"), the Company acquired
(the "Acquisition"), all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the
Targets (as defined below), from the Target Shareholders in exchange for an
aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $.01 per share (the
"Common Stock") of the Company.

         Pursuant to the terms of the Reorganization Agreement, effective as of
January 6, 1998, Ed Cowle, Joseph Mancini and Robyn Mancini resigned as officers
and directors of the Company and certain of the beneficial owners of the
10,000,000 shares of Common Stock issued in the Acquisition set forth elsewhere
herein became officers and directors of the Company.

         Prior to the Acquisition, the Target Stockholders owned all of the
issued and outstanding capital stock of the following four holding corporations:
Maximilia, Ltd., a corporation organized under the laws of Ireland
("Maximilia"); Sturge Ltd., a corporation organized under the laws of Ireland
("Sturge"); Jolly LLC, a limited liability corporation organized under the laws
of Wyoming ("Jolly LLC"); and Paul Garnier Ltd., a corporation organized under
the laws of Ireland ("Garnier"). Garnier, together with Maximilia, Sturge and


                                       2
<PAGE>

Jolly LLC shall sometimes hereinafter be referred to collectively, as the
"Targets."

         Jolly LLC owns sixty-five (65%) percent of the issued and outstanding
capital stock of Jolly Alon Limited, a Moldovan corporation ("Jolly Alon" or the
"Hotel"), that operates and manages the Jolly Alon Hotel in Chisinau, Moldova
and rents stores and offices located on the hotel property, with the remaining
thirty-five (35%) percent of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Jolly
Alon being owned by the Government of the Republic of Moldova; Sturge and
Maximilia each own fifty (50%) percent (one hundred (100%) percent in the
aggregate) of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Banca Commerciala pe
Actiuni "Export-Import," a Moldovan corporation ("Bank"), which owns a
commercial bank in Moldova; and Maximilia owns fifty-five (55%) percent and
Garnier owns fifteen (15%) percent (seventy (70%) percent in the aggregate) of
the issued and outstanding capital stock of Exim Asint S.A., a Moldovan
corporation which owns a property and casualty insurance business in Moldova
("Insurance Company"), with the remaining thirty (30%) percent being owned by
the Bank.

         On May 6, 1998, pursuant to a stock purchase agreement dated May 3,
1998, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of the
capital stock of Intercomsoft in exchange for 1,000,000 shares of the Company's
Common Stock.

         The Hotel, the Bank, the Insurance Company and Intercomsoft shall
sometimes hereinafter be collectively referred to as the "Asset Entities."

         As a result of the Acquisition of the Targets by the Company, the
Targets became wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, which, in turn, and as
described above, own capital stock of the Asset Entities which now constitute
the Company's business operations.

THE ECONOMIC CRISIS IN RUSSIA

         All of the Company's Asset Entities (subsidiaries) operate in, or
derive their revenues from, the Republic of Moldova, a former Republic of the
Soviet Union. The Company believes that the current and possible future)
economic crisis in Russia, which caused an economic slowdown in the Republic of
Moldova, resulting in less disposable income to the Moldovan population, had an
adverse impact on the revenues and income of the Company's subsidiaries. Such
slowdown may continue to have such adverse impact. In addition, the Moldovan
Leu, the currency of the Republic of Moldova, has undergone significant
devaluation, which has also had a significant and adverse impact on the
revenue and income of the Company's subsidiaries. Additional devaluation of
the currency may continue to have such an adverse impact. Political
uncertainty and instability in the Republic of Moldova may also play a role
in the future revenue and income of the Company and its subsidiaries.

THE BUSINESS OPERATIONS OF THE ASSET ENTITIES

         The following discusses the business operations of the Bank, the Hotel,
the Insurance Company and Intercomsoft, in that order.

BANCA COMMERCIALA PE ACTIUNI "EXPORT-IMPORT"

         BACKGROUND. The Bank, which before June 1996 was named "Banca de
Export-Import a Moldovei S.R.L.," was established in April 1994 and, in
accordance with a Decree of the President of the Republic of Moldova
("Moldova"), was to be owned sixty-five (65%) percent by foreign investors
and thirty-five (35%) percent by the Government of Moldova.

         The Bank received its General Banking License from the National Bank of
Moldova in April 1994 and began activity as a new commercial bank in June 1994.

         The Bank was previously a Moldovan extension of the Vnesh-Econom Bank
of the Soviet Union (now a Russian bank), which then became an international
division of the National Bank of Moldova.

         In September 1996, the Government of Moldova's ownership interest was
repurchased by the Bank for approximately U.S. $700,000. As a result of the
Reorganization Agreement, it is a second-tier wholly-owned subsidiary of the
Company.

         The Bank's head office is located in Chisinau, with two branches
located in Ungeni and Comrat, four exchange offices in Chisinau, eleven Registru
cash office (nine in Chisinau, one in Ungheni and one in Comrat), and three
specialized offices for Western Union services (one in Chisinau, one in Ungheni
and one in Comrat). See "Services Provided By The Bank."

         The Bank conducts a variety of commercial banking activities in
Moldova. These activities include, among other things, receipt of monetary
deposits, granting credit, transactions in foreign currency, financing
international transactions, and investing in government securities. The Bank is,
under Moldovan law, anauthorized dealer permitted to engage in foreign
currency transactions and is licensed to buy and sell Moldovan Government
securities.

         Although the Bank's license permits it to engage in most of the
services that a commercial bank in the United States or Western Europe would
engage in, its actual activities vary in respect of those of United States or
Western European banks.


                                       4

         SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE BANK. The Bank accepts funds from depositors
on a demand or time deposit basis. Interest is paid on all time deposits, both
in Moldovan Leu and U.S. Dollars. Only demand deposits in Moldovan Leu made by
legal commercial entities are interest bearing. Demand deposits in foreign
currency, both personal and commercial, are non interest bearing. Additionally,
those persons and entities that deposit funds on demand are charged a fee for
withdrawing their funds. Additional services provided include, but are not
limited to, the following:

         (a)      picking up and delivering of cash;

         (b)      providing short term interest bearing loans that in most
                  instances are collateralized with assets in excess of the
                  amount of the loan;

         (c)      arranging foreign currency transactions including documentary
                  letters of credit and collection;

         (d)      transfers of client funds within Moldova and internationally
                  through wire (or cross) transfers of funds and/or Western
                  Union payments;

         (e)      effecting money transfers for customers via Western Union;

         (f)      issuing and cashing traveler's checks;

         (g)      rental of safety deposit boxes;

         (h)      acceptance of utility (telephone, electric) or rental (on
                  government owned properties) payments from customers and
                  non-customers;

         (i)      providing cash collection services for the Moldovan State
                  Registration Department (the Registru), the only Moldovan
                  authority to issue identification documents, passports,
                  driver's licenses and other forms of government issued
                  identification documents; and

<PAGE>

         (j)      bidding on Moldovan government securities at auctions and
                  purchasing same. The Bank also participates in such auctions
                  on its own behalf as principal. See "Investments."

         Fees are charged for the above services, with borrowers being charged
interest.

         In Moldova, the concept of a "check," either personal or commercial has
not yet been accepted. Transactions are completed in cash or by transfer of
funds. Credit cards are not generally accepted nor are long term loans,
mortgages and equipment financing currently used. Loans are secured with
collateral. Personal non-collateralized loans are not accepted. The Bank's loans
are made on a short term (three to six months) basis and occasionally yearly.

         The above transactions can be engaged in with either persons or legal
entities.

         FUNDS ON DEPOSIT. During the last four fiscal years funds deposited by
the Bank's customers had, as a percentage of deposits, the following sources.

         SPECIFIC AGREEMENTS. In 1995, an agreement was signed between the
Government of Moldova and the United States for financing imports into Moldova
of grain products from the United States. Under this agreement the Bank issues
letters of credit for its clients in favor of the grain supplier in the United
States. The letters of credit provide for a corresponding agency of the United
States to guarantee the payment to the supplier upon receipt of the documents
confirming delivery of the goods.

         In April 1996, a trilateral agreement was signed between Dresdner Bank
AG, Tirex-Petrol S.A. (a company 80% owned by the Government of Moldova) and the
Bank concerning the financing of imports of oil products into Moldova.

         An oil dealer nominated by Dresdner Bank imports oil products into
Moldova and the Dresdner Bank finances the transactions under letters of credit
issued by the Bank. The oil products are later sold on the local market by the
Moldovan Government which collects payment in local currency. The funds are then
converted into U.S. dollars by the Bank and used for repayment to Dresdner Bank.

         The Government of Moldova issued a standby guarantee signed by the
Minister of Finance of Moldova which states that it will repay the indebtedness
to Dresdner Bank if the other parties do not fulfill their obligations. This
agreement expires in 2001. The maximum line of credit authorized is U.S.
$50,000,000, while the largest amount outstanding to date has been U.S.
$8,000,000.

         Although the trilateral agreement was due to expire in 2001, the
project was discontinued in September 1998 as the mechanism of the project was
changed. Dresdner Bank ceased providing financing and Tirex-Petrol S.A. began to
pay for the oil products directly on the basis of cash covered letter of credit.

         In both instances the Bank charges a fee for the issuance of its
letters of credit.

         INVESTMENTS. In addition to charging fees and interest for the services
indicated above, the Bank also obtains revenues by participating in auctions for
and purchasing interest bearing treasury bills issued by the Moldovan Government
and interest earned on funds deposited in correspondent foreign banks.

         The Bank has also made investments in other enterprises, including the
Insurance Company.

         Loans to affiliated parties are made on the same basis as to
non-affiliates.

         BORROWERS. The Bank attempts to diversify its portfolio of loaned funds
to avoid a concentration of risk.

         During the Bank's fiscal year ended December 31, 1999, the Bank issued
an aggregate of approximately $8,293,362 in loans. The Bank's largest borrowers
identified by business categories and their approximate borrowings are as
follows:

         LOANS TO RELATED PARTIES. Two loans were made by the Bank to
Dufermol,("Dufermol") a chain of duty free shops in the Republic of Moldova
whose principal shareholder is the Chairman of the Board of the Company. The
first loan is an $83,0000 principal amount loan, bears interest at the rate of
35% per annum, was made on February 9, 1999 and matures on February 9, 2001. The
second loan is a $60,000 principal amount loan, bears interest at the rate of
35% per annum, was made November 16, 1999 and matures on May 16, 2000. It should
be noted that 35% per annum was the rate in effect in Moldova at the time such
loans were made.

         The Bank also made a $72,000 principal amount loan bearing interest at
the rate of 35% per annum to NIT, a television station in the Republic of
Moldova whose principal shareholder is the Chairman of the Board of the Company.
The loan was made on August 4, 1999 and matures on February 4, 2001.

         The Bank also made a $500,000 principal amount loan to Polen S.R.L.,
an entity doing business in the Republic of Moldova whose beneficial owner is
the Company's Chairman of the Board. The loan was not paid when it matured in
1999. As a result of non-payment, of such loan, the Bank foreclosed on the
building held as collateral for such loan, which is valued at $682,000, based
on an independent appraisal from Pricewaterhouse Coopers dated February 25,
2000. The Bank intends to use this building (which is located a few doors
away from as its main facility in Chisinau) as a client services annex to the
Bank and for other expanded banking services.

         COMPETITION. At present, all authorized banks operating in Moldova, may
be classified into three categories

         (1) Current and former government owned banks. Only one bank, the
Savings Bank, is still partially owned by the Government of the Republic of
Moldova. The three banks in this first category have been privatized and have
become joint stock commercial banks in full. These banks are the
Moldova-Agroindbank, Banca Sociala and Moldindcombank. Another commercial bank,
Victoria Bank, may be included in this category as its total assets are at the
same level and the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development is among its


                                       8
<PAGE>

shareholders. These five banks represent the first category of Moldovan banks -
the largest banks in Moldova.

         (2) The second category is comprised of small commercial banks that
experience financial troubles in one way or another. It is quite possible that
these banks may lose their license because of the steady rising capital
requirements of the National Bank of Moldova.

         (3) All other banks, approximately ten banks, including the Company's
Bank, form the third category. Branches of foreign banks could be included in
this category as well. It is typical for these banks to have similar financial
indicators, such as total assets, liquid asset-to-total asset ratio and deposit
and loan portfolio volumes. Only four of the banks in this third category may be
considered competitors of the Bank, Universalbank, Mobiasbank, Fincombank and
Unibank.

         The Company believes that the Bank competes on the basis of overall
customer service, interest rates and other terms and conditions of loans, the
professionalism of its staff, service offerings (especially in the areas of cash
transport and foreign exchange), community reputation and the fact of its
foreign ownership, which the Bank believes enhances its attractiveness to
depositors and other customers.

         GOVERNMENT REGULATION. The license granted to the Bank by the National
Bank of Moldova authorizes the Bank to do the following, among other things:

         (1)      accept deposits (demand and time) which may or may not bear
                  interest;

         (2)      grant credits (consumer or factoring), financing of commercial
                  transactions and the granting of secured or non secured
                  mortgages;

         (3)      loan funds for its or its clients' accounts;

         (4)      provide cash services;

         (5)      issue and control payment documents and instruments(credit and
                  payment cards, travelers checks and bank promissory notes,
                  etc.);

         (6)      engage in foreign currency exchange;

         (7)      financial leasing;


                                        9
<PAGE>

         (8)      various credit services;

         (9)      act as a financial agent or consultant; and

         (10)     any other activity permitted by the National Bank of Moldova.

         The Company believes it is in compliance with the banking laws, rules
and regulations of banks in Moldova.

         CAPITALIZATION REQUIREMENTS. The Bank currently operates under a
B-License issued by the National Bank of Moldova. The National Bank of Moldova
regularly revises the capital requirements for banks. In accordance with current
regulations, banks operating under a B-License (such as the Bank) must maintain
a shareholders' equity of $48 million Moldovan Leu as of July 1, 2000
(approximately $4.1 million U.S. at the exchange rate in effect at December 31,
1999.) The Bank's shareholders' equity as of December 31, 1999 was approximately
$35 million Moldovan Leu (approximately $3 million U.S.) As a result, the Bank
must increase its shareholders' equity by approximately $13 million Leu
(approximately $1.1 million U.S.), by July 1, 2000 in order to maintain its
current banking license in Moldova. In addition, the National Bank of Moldova
has declared that all banks with a B-License will be required to maintain
shareholders' equity of no less than $76 million Leu (approximately $6.5 million
U.S.), by January 1, 2001. Should the Bank be unable to meet these
capitalization requirements, it may lose its B- license to operate as a bank in
Moldova. Although the Company believes that the Bank will increase its
shareholders' equity to the required amounts, within the required time frames,
in the event that the Bank is not able to do so, the Bank's ability to operate
as a bank in Moldova would, in all likelihood, be terminated which would have a
material adverse effect on the Company.

         SALES AND MARKETING. The Bank advertises its service on Russian and
Romanian television stations broadcast in Moldova and on four local radio
stations. The Bank also advertises in local newspapers and financial
publications as well as newspapers and magazines oriented toward foreign
citizens. In 1999, the Bank established a web site WWW.EXIMBANK.COM in two
languages (English and Russian.) The Bank also offers "promotional" items to its
customers such as pens, bags and calendars.


                                       10

miscellaneous auxiliary services.

         MARKETING (two persons) - marketing research and advertising.

         TWO REMOTE BRANCHES (twenty persons).

         The Bank's operations are augmented by a computer system with terminals
available to all necessary persons with security access, as appropriate,
installed. Bank personnel developed the Bank's computer system which covers
virtually all aspects of the Bank's operations (cash deposits, payments,
crediting, account controls, currency exchange transactions, traveler's check
transactions, past due obligations of Bank customers, client indexes,
internal reporting, interfacing with the National Bank of Moldova, account
maintenance, analysis of Bank activity and record-keeping of assets, salary,
materials, etc.).

         The Bank's computer is connected to various outside services, including
the Internet for information gathering, Swift for international settlements and
Reuters for foreign exchange rates and other similar services.


                                       11
<PAGE>

         PERSONNEL. At December 31, 1999, the Bank employed 132 people,
consisting of 112 in its main office and 20 in its two remote branches. All
employees have one year employment agreements which are renewable for one year
on mutually agreeable terms or subject to compliance with the Bank's annual
employee testing requirements. Notwithstanding such employment agreements,
discharge is permitted for incompetence and other similar situations. As all
employers in Moldova, the Bank is required to contribute an amount equal to 31%
of an employee's salary to a government mandated social fund.

         FUTURE PLANS. The Bank currently has plans to enlarge its activities
through the development of new services as well as opening additional branches
and cash offices.

         In November 1999 the Bank acquired new premises across the street from
its main office in Chisinau, where a Western Union service facility is
anticipated later this year that will offer services including the ability by
Moldovan residents to make utility and rental payments. The Bank also acquired a
building which is a few doors away from its main facility which it intends to
use as a client services annex to the Bank and for other expanded banking
services.

         In addition, the Bank plans to open two new branches in the Chisinau
area this year, one in the Rishkanovka (north of Chisinau) and a second in
downtown Chisinau beside the National Bank of Moldova and the Ministry of
Finance. The activity of these two new branches will be oriented toward both
personal and corporate banking. The Bank is also planning to open a new branch
in the city of Belts, the second largest city in the Republic of Moldova, and
the center of the industrial area of northern Moldova.

JOLLY ALON LIMITED

         In October of 1991, the Government of Moldova established Seabeco
Moldova, SA ("SEMSA") to be 65% owned by a private investor with the remaining
35% to be owned by the Government of Moldova. At that time, the Government of
Moldova transferred the hotel in Chisinau that it owned to SEMSA. The hotel was
known as the Seabeco Moldova Hotel. Thereafter, the Hotel and SEMSA changed
their names to Jolly Alon Limited and Jolly Alon Hotel, respectively.

         Originally opened approximately 30 years ago, the Hotel is primarily
used by visiting foreign diplomats, other foreign embassy employees, dignitaries
and businessmen. The private investor began a program of reconstruction and
refurbishment with its own funds which program currently continues, including
the construction of a "wing" currently occupied by the German Embassy and the
addition of a sixth floor to the then five story hotel. Other improvements
include the installation of fuel storage tanks and the construction of the
Hotel's HVAC facilities. The Hotel is situated on government-owned land, which
has been rented to the Hotel for a fifty year term and which is located at M.
Chibortero Street, Chisinau, Moldova.

         Chisinau is the capital of Moldova, located approximately 800 miles
from Moscow, 350 miles from Budapest, 350 miles from Bucharest and 300 miles
from Kiev. The Hotel is located approximately twenty minutes from Chisinau's
airport which is serviced by flights from such cities as Athens, Berlin,
Bucharest, Istanbul, Kiev, Minsk, Odessa, Prague, Sofia, Warsaw, Budapest,
Frankfurt, Moscow, Tel Aviv and Vienna by Air Moldova, Transaero, Air Moldova
International, Moldavian Airlines and Tarom.

         The Hotel is centrally located, near Moldova's Parliament, its
President's residence, and adjoins a substantial public park.

         OPERATIONS. The Hotel's revenues are primarily derived from the rental
of its modern well appointed guest accommodations and from restaurant and bar
operations, leasing of space to the German Embassy and leasing of private
business offices (to business tenants, including Pricewaterhouse Coopers).

         The Company considers the Hotel to be the only "first class" hotel in
Chisinau carrying Moldova's designation as a four star hotel with accommodations
for up to 120 guests in 80 hotel rooms. Hotel rooms range from single occupancy
rooms to suites as follows: single (forty rooms), double (twenty-nine rooms),
luxury (three rooms), deluxe (six rooms) and suites (three). Hotel rooms range
in price from $95.00 for a single room to $295.00 for a suite with discounts
offered for extended residence. Reduced rates are offered during the fall and
winter "off-season." All rooms have bath and shower facilities, are
air-conditioned, have satellite delivered color TV and direct dial telephones
for local and international calls.


                                       13
<PAGE>

         Additional services owned and operated by the Hotel are a full service
restaurant opened for guest buffet breakfast (complimentary) and lunch and
dinner with a full range of food and beverage offerings, bars, saunas, an indoor
swimming pool, beauty salon, barbershop, room service and a small private casino
(for Hotel guests only), all serviced by a multi-lingual staff. The Hotel leases
retail office space to a clothing boutique, fragrance, jewelry and publications
concession and a seller of local artifacts. A small foreign currency exchange
office is provided by the Bank.

         In addition to revenues from room rentals to business/diplomatic
travelers, the Hotel also provides business services, meeting/conference rooms,
notarial service, interpretation to and from major European languages, limousine
services and tourist services.

         CLIENTELE. Hotel guests are primarily business men, both foreign and
from the Republics which had comprised the USSR, diplomats and other embassy
personnel. The area in which the Hotel is located does not have any significant
tourism and such travelers comprise only a small number of the Hotel's guests.
An unscientific and informal guest survey encompassing the years 1995 - 1998
indicates Hotel usage from personnel from the embassies of over twenty countries
(including the United States, Great Britain, Israel and Germany), multi-national
corporations and international agencies. Regular guests of the Hotel are the
personnel from International Monetary Fund, and the International Bank for
Reconstructions and Development (part of the World Bank Group).

         Average unaudited monthly occupancy rates for the years ended December
31, 1999 and 1998 were approximately 38% and 48%, respectively.

         COMPETITION. In its locale, the Hotel's competition consists of two
other hotels only one of which the Company considers to be of a similar class
but lacking the range of services that the Hotel offers. The other hotel is
state owned. The Company believes that it competes with the other hotels in its
locale on the basis of its physical appearance, the range and quality of
services and other amenities offered.


                                       14
<PAGE>

         INSURANCE. Through the Insurance Company, the Hotel maintains insurance
to cover comprehensive casualty losses from occurrences such as flood, fire and
other natural disasters generally in the amount of U.S. $7,000,000 (with the
Hotel being a 20% coinsurer for earthquakes) and U.S. $1,000,000 of general
accident liability insurance.

         SALES AND MARKETING. The Hotel's sales and marketing activities to date
have included the development of its web site www.jollyalon.com, advertising in
local newspapers and local radio and television stations, the distribution of
brochures to airlines servicing Moldova, diplomatic embassies and other foreign
missions, providing discounts to tour operators and their clients, contracts
with international exhibition organizations and private parties, banquets and
celebrations in the Hotel's restaurant

         ADMINISTRATION AND PERSONNEL. The non-policy day-to-day operations of
the Hotel are managed by an in-house management staff of nine persons. Overall
operations are overseen by a General Director whose responsibilities include
day-to-day budgeting and finance, oversight of employee hiring and assignments
and the maintenance of good relations with vendors and Hotel clientele.

         Among the General Director's staff are several other directors who
assist in the overall Hotel operations, including a financial and technical
director, a deputy and a hotel manager. The financial director assigns duties to
the administrative staff involved in the Hotel's financial organization
(accounting and record-keeping) and their hiring and firing.

         The financial director is also responsible for Hotel leases (with and
to third parties) and contracting for supplies and arranging for their
distribution. The Hotel manager is responsible for the oversight of service
personnel, their adherence to the Hotel's policies regarding client contact and
a dress code, "plant" maintenance (including the Hotel's physical appearance,
computers and other equipment), reservation control, upkeep of the Hotel's
services to its clientele, with personal attention to government
representatives, and the determination of those situations appropriate for
discounted rentals. The technical director is responsible for the maintenance of
technical and electro-technical equipment, exterior maintenance and the
maintenance of the HVAC, telephone, fire alarm and security systems and business
equipment (telecopiers, etc.).

         The Hotel's administrative staff consists of accountants, cashiers, and
other clerical personnel.

EXIM ASINT SA (THE "INSURANCE COMPANY")

         The Insurance Company has engaged in the insurance business since it
began operations in 1995. The Insurance Company's business consists of issuing
and underwriting policies principally for property and casualty liability
insurance, exclusively to policyholders in Moldova.

         The Insurance Company has received government licenses to issue, and
offers, the following types of insurance coverage: Comprehensive Liability
Property; Travelers' Medical Insurance; Voluntary Transportation Means Insurance
(CASCO); Automobile; government mandated Third-party Automobile Liability;
Cargo; Personal Accident; and Voluntary Third Party Liability Coverage.

         COMPREHENSIVE LIABILITY PROPERTY INSURANCE. The Insurance Company
offers comprehensive liability/multi-peril liability insurance providing
coverage of 100% of the actual cost of property losses resulting from fire,
robbery, larceny, or certain other natural disasters and third party illegal
actions. Damage from earthquakes is covered at 80% of the actual cost.

         TRAVELERS' MEDICAL INSURANCE. The Insurance Company offers three
travelers' medical insurance plans for Moldovan permanent residents traveling
abroad. The plans are distinguished by the United States dollar amount of
coverage afforded by each plan, which is $15,000, $30,000 or $50,000,
respectively. It is customary for certain countries to disallow entry to
visitors who do not possess medical insurance covering accidents or illnesses
suffered while traveling, as opposed to pre-existing conditions and illnesses.

         AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE. The Insurance Company offers Voluntary Third
Party Liability Insurance covering losses resulting from road accidents, fire,
explosions, natural disaster, theft and third party illegal actions.

         The Insurance Company also offers government mandated Third-Party
Liability insurance coverage for automobile accidents, which coverage


                                       16
<PAGE>

is mandated for all drivers by the Moldovan Government. Under this coverage, a
policyholder whose automobile is damaged is covered for up to 180,000 MDL in
damage. In case of bodily injury or death due to an automobile accident, the
compensation is not limited by the maximum sum and is paid in the full amount of
the actual and real damage as confirmed by the Insurance Company. This
automobile insurance excludes from coverage certain hazardous activities,
including off-road use, riots, labor actions or other civil disobedience,
transportation of explosives, hazardous or flammable content, and accidents
sustained while the vehicle was used for commercial purposes. The Insurance
Company does not offer insurance which covers injuries to passengers due to
the driver's negligence, nor is the concept of such liability currently
recognized under Moldovan law.

         PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE. Personal accident insurance is offered and
can cover an insured for up to a specified amount, for death or disability.

         CARGO INSURANCE. The Insurance Company offers insurance which covers
damage sustained to commercial goods while in transit.

         VOLUNTARY THIRD PARTY LIABILITY INSURANCE. The Insurance Company offers
insurance to compensate damages caused to third parties.

         The number of insurance policies issued by the Insurance Company, by
industry segment in the last three calendar years, are as follows:

         USE OF REINSURANCE. The Insurance Company has entered into agreements
with certain other insurance companies whereby such companies provide
reinsurance to the Insurance Company. Reinsurance is an insurance industry
practice of alleviating the primary insurer's risk by means of the assumption by
an insurance company, acting as a reinsurer, of a portion of the underlying
policy's risk in return for a portion of the premiums generated from such
policy. Such reinsurers are typically larger and better capitalized insurance
companies. The Insurance Company utilizes reinsurance in order to limit its
maximum exposure to significant losses from several policies at or about the
same time, or very large losses from any one policy, resulting from events
including but not limited to, natural disasters. Reinsurance is customarily
renegotiated on a year-to-year basis.


                                       17
<PAGE>

         Under a reinsurance agreement, the primary insurer ordinarily assumes
the first portion of a claim ("FIRST TIER") and then it and the reinsurer share
the risk of coverage thereafter with the reinsurer assuming more of the claims,
and risk, for coverage above the FIRST TIER, while sharing, proportionately, the
amount of the premium for the coverage in excess of the FIRST TIER. However, the
primary insurer is allowed to take a "commission" (or retain an amount of the
premium not proportionate to the risks retained by the primary insurer or
assumed by the reinsurer). Although the Insurance Company cedes insurance to the
reinsurer pursuant to such agreements, it is not relieved from its obligations
to policyholders. The failure of reinsurers to honor their obligations could
result in significant losses to the Insurance Company.

         The Insurance Company's principal reinsurer is Muenchener
Rueckversicherungs-Gesellschaft ("Munich Re"), and it has other reinsurers to
cover its comprehensive liability insurance policies. Under its agreement
with Munich Re.

         The Insurance Company is heavily dependent upon Munich Re for
reinsurance. Reinsurance is a product used by primary insurers to alleviate
risks undertaken when underwriting insurance policies, and borne when
substantial claims and losses result from multiple policyholders, or from very
large claims and losses of holders in the event of major catastrophes (such as
natural disasters). Munich Re is the Insurance Company's primary reinsurer. The
Company believes that the loss of Munich Re as a reinsurer, or the reduced
capacity or inclination of Munich Re to act as a reinsurer for policies
underwritten by the Insurance Company, would not materially adversely affect the
ability of the Insurance Company to absorb a significant number of large claims
and losses, or any one significant claim and loss, suffered as a result of
underwriting policies, as other international reinsurers are available to the
Insurance Company at rates competitive with Munich Re.

         MANDATORY INSURANCE CLAIMS RESERVES. The Moldova Ministry of Finance
requires that insurance companies maintain reserves in an amount at least 50% to
60% of its current premiums to cover losses and claims. The Insurance Company
also maintains a reserve at specific rates of net earned premiums, which reserve
is set according to market experience as a whole and is not necessarily intended
to cover future claims lodged with the Insurance Company.


                                       18
<PAGE>

         INVESTMENTS. The Insurance Company receives additional revenues from
the investment of premium fund reserves which are controlled by the Moldova
Ministry of Finance. The Insurance Company's reserves, as of December 31, 1999,
were allocated as follows (in U.S. Dollars):

<TABLE>

                            $ 33,082      current accounts
                            $121,714      bank deposits
                            $ 23,857      government bonds; and
                            $116,472      other investments
                            --------
                            $295,125

</TABLE>

         SALES AND MARKETING. The Insurance Company is heavily dependent on
personal contacts and visits to potential clients, as well as attendance at
trade conferences, newspaper and yellow page advertisements and the efforts
of commission agents who are not employees of the Insurance Company or other
subsidiaries/affiliates of the Company for the marketing of its insurance
products. The Insurance Company employs both full-time and part-time sales
agents who work strictly on a commission basis.

         The Insurance Company sells insurance policies from its main office in
Chisinau and a small marketing extension office located at the Bureau of
Registration (automobile) in Chisinau. The Insurance Company also has a sales
representative in the German Embassy located in a wing of the Hotel, who sells
premium medical insurance to persons applying for visas to travel to countries
within the European Union ("EU").

         CUSTOMERS. The Insurance Company is dependent upon the economy,
somewhat, and delays in salary payments to customers, the increase in
unemployment and other economy related factors in the Republic of Moldova have
negatively affected the insurance industry and the Insurance Company.

         In 1997 the Insurance Company issued a total of 4,067 policies; in
1998, 3,500 policies and in 1999, 3,970 policies. In 1999, the Bank, Universal
Bank and the Hotel accounted for approximately 12.4%, 6.2% and 23% of the
Insurance Company's premiums, respectively. The Insurance Company also receives
client referrals from the Bank of persons/entities seeking insurance upon
collateral used to obtain Bank loans and provides insurance to the Hotel.

         COMPETITION. According to the Insurance Company management, there are
approximately 40 other insurance companies currently operating in Moldova.


                                       19
<PAGE>

         Competition is primarily based on the rating of premiums, as well as
name recognition and quality of customer service. The Insurance Company's
management believes that other insurance companies in Moldova are applying
premium rates higher than those for comparable policies for western Europe
policyholders. Management believes that the prevalence of local insurance
companies which are not reinsured gives the Insurance Company a competitive
edge as such competitors are and have disregarded their assumed effective
risk and endangered their capital in the process. Management believes that
its underwriting policies are more prudent than its competitors and its
pricing system is based on consideration of the attendant risks and
collaboration with reinsurers. The Insurance Company endeavors to compete
with such companies on the basis of offering superior service and prompt
payment of claims.

         CURRENCIES. The Insurance Company conducts its business in MDL.
However, reinsurance business is conducted in United States dollars (US$).

         RELATED PARTY LOAN. On March 23, 1999 the Insurance Company made a
$88,000 principal amount loan to Dufermol, a chain of duty free stores in the
Republic of Moldova whose principal shareholder is the Chairman of the Board of
the Company. The loan was made on March 23, 1999 and matures on March 22, 2001.

INTERCOMSOFT

         Intercomsoft is a provider of proprietary technology and equipment (the
"Intercomsoft System")required to produce secure essential government
identification documents. The Intercomsoft System is leased from Supercom
pursuant to a lease agreement dated August 25, 1995 with a term of ten
(10)years, automatically extended for an additional ten (10) years unless prior
notification of either party is received.

         An important aspect of Intercomsoft System is that it can be readily
connected to any existing computer mainframe or central database (such as a
national population registry) to capture millions of records and images of data.
These records (and images) are stored and printed at high level speed to
accommodate the needs and demands of the customer.

         Pursuant to the Supply Agreement (as defined below), Intercomsoft
leased the Intercomsoft System to the Government of the Republic of Moldova
which utilizes it, together with and related technology, for national document
production, including passports, national identification documents, drivers'
licenses and other essential identification products which are processed by
Moldovan government employees. Intercomnsoft also provides the consumables


                                       20
<PAGE>

needed to produce such identifications products. Other applications of the
technology include police and military use, access control, high security
identification, government identification, and company identification products.

         The Intercomsoft System consists principally of a technology of laser
printing on plastic which can print up to 450 high quality cards an hour,
utilizing a secured proprietary process. At the heart of all of such systems is
"ID-SOFT," an ID application generator software which allows these systems to
integrate into any given project, such features as fingerprints, palm geometry
and signatures, to name just a few.

         The Intercomsoft System utilizes a variety of specially designed
consumable materials which include security features to safeguard the
end-product. These safety features, coupled with a related secured printing
process, help make the end-product a more secure document.

         Governments control and mass produce various types of national
identification documents and cards such as passports, drivers' licenses, and
national or regional identification cards. Such documents and cards generally
provide their owners with the ability to exercise special rights, obtain
benefits, or effect transactions. The use of fraudulent identification cards
creates national security risks by enabling unauthorized access to sensitive
information or secure public facilities. In addition, holders of fraudulent
documents or cards can improperly obtain certain benefits and rights such as
welfare, or other governmental benefits and access to bank accounts. The costs
associated with such fraud, as well as the cost generated by related law
enforcement actions are significant. In an effort to combat forgery and fraud,
photographic identification cards encapsulated within laminated pouches were
developed. However, photographic identification cards can be replicated using
widely available advanced color copiers and printers, and laminated pouches have
proven easy to delaminate. Consequently, governments are seeking solutions that
will heighten security, reduce costs associated with forged or fraudulent
identification documents or cards and enable cost-effective production of secure
and durable documents and cards. Moreover, due to the increasing sophistication
of the technology available for the production of identification documents
containing advanced security features, there has been an increase in the cost of
producing identification documents.

         The Company believes that Intercomsoft System represents the
"state-of-the-art" in secure document production in the Republic of Moldova.
Because of the state-of-the-art technology it offers, Intercomsoft has secured a
license from the Moldovan Government for official national document production
in the Republic of Moldova as described below (see "Supply Agreement with the
Republic of Moldova").


                                       21

         SUPPLY AGREEMENT WITH THE REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA. In April 1996,
Intercomsoft was awarded a ten-year contract by the Ministry of Economics,
Republic of Moldova (the "Supply Agreement"), to provide a National Register of
Population and National Passport System. Accordingly, Intercomsoft supplies all
of the equipment, technology, software and materials necessary to produce all
national passports, drivers' licenses, vehicle permits, identification cards and
other national documents in the Republic of Moldova.

         Pursuant to the Supply Agreement (as defined below), Intercomsoft
currently produces and supplies a number of Moldovan essential documents
including:

                  (a)      Travel Documents
                  (b)      Passport Documents
                  (c)      Picture Identification Cards
                  (d)      Drivers' Licenses
                  (e)      Car Licenses
                  (f)      Tax and other Government Authorized Cards
                  (g)      Other forms of Identifications Documents

         Intercomsoft derives all of its revenues and income pursuant to the
Supply Contract. If for any reason (or for no reason) the Supply Contract were
terminated, the terms were materially or adversely amended, or business reduced,
such event would have a material adverse effect on Intercomsoft as well as the
Company.

         GOVERNMENT AUDIT. In November 1999, the Company learned that the
Ministry of Economy Affairs and Reform of the Republic of Moldova (the
"Ministry"), was soliciting bids to select an audit company to review the Supply
Agreement between Intercomsoft and the Government of the Republic of Moldova
pursuant to which Intercomsoft is granted the right to act as the exclusive
supplier of the technology required to produce secure essential documents to the
Government. The Company believes that the review will involve the assessment of
such contract comparing it with international norms for prices charged for the
service performed. No assurance can be given when, if ever, such review shall
begin or the results therefrom. A loss, or a substantial change in the terms of
such contract could, however, have a material adverse affect on Intercomsoft and
the Company. As of the date of this filing, the Company is not aware that any
review has begun, nor if a bid on such review has been awarded.

         COMPETITION. By virtue of the Supply Agreement to produce various
Government mandated essential documents, Intercomsoft supplies all of such
documents to the Government of Moldova and, accordingly, Intercomsoft
believes it currently has no competition for its products in Moldova.

ITEM 2. PROPERTIES

         The Bank's main office is located at Blvd. Stefan Cel/Mare, 6, MD-2001,
Chisinau, Moldova occupying approximately 1300 square meters of space in a Bank
owned building. The Bank has recently acquired an additional building a few
doors away from its main office in Chisinau occupying 1,867 square meters which
it intends to make use of as a client service center annex to the Bank's main
office and for other expanded banking services. The Bank's two branches are
leased from non-affiliated third parties and located in the Moldovan cities of
Ungeni (approximately 110 square meters) and Komrat (approximately 214 square
meters) at an aggregate annual rental cost of $9,000 for such two branches. The
Bank's office premises are insured against fire, burglary, earthquake and water
(flood) risks by a policy issued by the Insurance Company.

         Until September of 1997, private land ownership was not permitted in
Moldova. The Company utilizes the land on which the Hotel is located pursuant to
a fifty-year lease from the Government of Moldova. Based upon the Company's
interpretation of current Moldovan law, the Company believes that the owner of a
building has the primary right to purchase the land on which it is situated once
the building is wholly privately owned. The Company has not yet submitted a
request for the acquisition of the land on which the Bank's main branch is
located.

         The Insurance Company leases approximately 100 square meters of office
space from the Bank pursuant to a 27-year operating lease with the Bank, under
which the Bank received payment in the form of equity shares in the Insurance
Company, such shares in the aggregate having been valued at $24,840. The
Insurance Company also maintains desk space, along with other insurance
companies, at the automobile registration offices in Moldova. The Insurance
Company believes its present leased office space will be suitable to meet its
needs for the next several years.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

         Neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries were, to its knowledge,
a party to or otherwise involved in any material legal proceedings as of
December 31, 1999.

ITEM 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS

         No matters were submitted to a vote of the Company's security holders
during the Company's last fiscal year ended December 31, 1999.

                                     PART II

ITEM 5. MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

         No shares of the Common Stock have been registered with the Securities
and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") or any state securities agency or
authority, pursuant to the registra tion requirements of the Securities Act of
1933, as amended (the "Act") and similar state securities laws. During its
fiscal years ended December 31, 1996, 1997, it is believed that there was no
active market for the Common Stock. Since January 30, 1998, the Common Stock has
been quoted on the NASD OTC Bulletin Board (the "OTC BB")under the trading
symbol "TMOL". Because no active trading market existed during 1996 and 1997, no
historical price information for the Company's shares is included for such
years.

         Beginning with the Company's reorganization on January 6, 1998, the
Common Stock began trading on the OTC BB, opening at $.01 on January 6, 1998 and
closing at $10.50 on December 31, 1998 with a high during the year of $15.00.
The Common Stock opened on January 1, 1999 at $11.25 and closed on December 31,
1999 at $2.25 with a high during the year of $11.50. The Common Stock closed on
March 31, 2000 at $0.50

         The ability of an individual stockholder to trade his/her shares in a
particular state may be subject to various rules and regulations of that state.
A number of states require that an issuer's securities be registered in their
state or appropriately exempted from registration before the securities are
permitted to trade in that state.

         The Company's shares may be subject to the provisions of the Act and
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), known as
the "penny stock" rules.

         The "penny stock" rules generally define penny stocks to be any equity
security that has a price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain
exceptions, and provide that any equity security is considered to be a penny
stock unless that security is: registered and traded on a national securities
exchange meeting specified criteria set by the Commission; authorized for
quotation on the Nasdaq Stock Market; issued by a registered investment company;
or excluded from the definition on the basis of price (at least $5.00 per share)
or the issuer's net tangible assets. If the Company's shares are deemed to be a
penny stock, trading in the shares will be subject to additional sales practice
requirements on broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than
established customers and accredited investors, generally persons with assets in
excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 together
with their spouse.


                                       24
<PAGE>

         For transactions covered by the "penny stock" rules, broker-dealers
must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of such
securities and must have received the purchaser's written consent to the
transaction prior to the purchase. Additionally, for any transaction involving a
penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require the delivery, prior to the first
transaction, of a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock market. A
broker-dealer also must disclose the commissions payable to both the
broker-dealer and the registered representative, and current quotations for the
securities. Finally, monthly statements must be sent disclosing recent price
information for the penny stocks held in the account and information on the
limited market in penny stocks. Consequently, these rules may restrict the
ability of broker-dealers to trade and/or maintain a market in the Company's
common stock and may affect the ability of shareholders to sell their shares.

         As of March 31, 2000, there were 409 holders of record of the Common
Stock.

         As of March 31, 2000, the Company has issued and outstanding 12,039,000
shares of Common Stock. Of this total, 1,000,000 shares may be deemed to have
been issued in transactions more than two years ago and may be sold or otherwise
transferred without restriction pursuant to the terms of Rule 144 ("Rule 144")
of the Act, without the volume limitations of said rule unless held by an
affiliate or controlling shareholder of the Company. Of the 12,039,000 shares,
the Company has identified 9,581,800 shares as being held by affiliates or
controlling shareholders of the Company. The remaining 2,457,200 shares may be
deemed to be free from restrictions and, if so, may be sold and/or transferred
without further registration under the Act.

         The 9,581,800 shares presently held by affiliates or controlling
shareholders of the Company may be sold pursuant to Rule 144, subject to the
volume and other limitations set forth under Rule 144. In general, under Rule
144 as currently in effect, a person (or persons whose shares are aggregated)
who has beneficially owed restricted shares of the Company for at least one
year, including any person who may be deemed to be an "affiliate" of the Company
(as the term "affiliate" is defined under the Act), is entitled to sell, within
any three-month period, an amount of shares that does not exceed the greater of
(i) the average weekly trading volume in the Company's common stock during the
four calendar weeks preceding such sale or (ii) 1% of the shares then
outstanding. A person who is not deemed to be an "affiliate" of the Company and
who has held restricted shares for at least two years would be entitled to sell
such shares without regard to the resale limitations of Rule 144.

         DIVIDEND POLICY. The Company has not declared or paid cash dividends or
made distributions in the past, and the Company does not anticipate that it
will pay cash dividends or make distributions in the foreseeable future. The
Company currently intends to retain and reinvest future earnings, if any, to
finance its operations.

ITEM 6. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
        AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

         The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction
with the Company's financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in
this report.

General

         The Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, owns 65% of the
issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Hotel with the remaining
thirty-five (35%) percent of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock
of the Hotel being owned by the Government of the Republic of Moldova; 100% of
the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Bank; 100% of the
issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Insurance Company; and
100% of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Intercomsoft,
which is the exclusive supplier to the Government of the Republic of Moldova of
the technology and equipment required to manufacture secured essential
government documents (e.g. passports, drivers' licenses, etc.). The Company's
interests in the Bank, the Hotel and the Insurance Company were acquired on
January 6, 1998. The Company's interest in Intercomsoft was acquired on May 6,
1998.

         The Company's subsidiaries operate in the Republic of Moldova and the
currency in which the Company transacts most of its operations is the Moldovan
Leu. At January 1, 1998, the three year accumulated rate of inflation in the
Republic of Moldova was approximately 80%. A country is generally considered to
be in hyperinflation if the three year accumulated rate of inflation is 100% or
more. During 1998, the Company's consolidated financial statements were prepared
assuming that the Moldovan economy remained highly inflationary as the inflation
rate had historically been volatile and had just declined to a rate below 100%.
Accordingly, the United State Dollar was used as the Company's functional
currency during 1998.

         In the quarter ended June 30, 1999, it was determined that at January
1, 1999, the three year accumulated rate of inflation in the Republic of Moldova
was approximately 42.4% Accordingly, the Company's management concluded that the
Republic of Moldova was no longer in an hyperinflationary economy and that the
Company's functional currency should revert to the Moldovan Leu from the United
States Dollar as of from that date. As a result, the consolidated financial
statements of the Company for such period were prepared on a
non-hyperinflationary basis. Further, the Company restated its unaudited
consolidated financial statements for the three (3) month period ending March
31, 1999 using a non-hyperinflationary basis so that all of the consolidated
financial statements for the Company for the 1999 fiscal year have been
prepared on a non-hyperinflationary basis.


                                       26
<PAGE>

         As the Company's subsidiaries all operate in, or derive its revenues
from, the Republic of Moldova, the current (and future) economic situation, and
the political uncertainty and instability, in the Republic of Moldova and in
Russia could have a material adverse effect on the Company and its subsidiaries.

COMPARISON OF YEAR END 1999 TO YEAR END 1998

         As the consolidated financial statements for the 1998 fiscal year end
were prepared assuming a hyperinflationary economy and the 1999 fiscal year end
was prepared assuming a non-hyperinflationary economy, there result is a number
of wide swings in the year end to year end comparisons attributable to the
devaluation of the Moldovan Leu.

THE BANK

         During the year ended December 31, 1999 ("1999"), the Bank had interest
income of approximately $1,437,000 compared to $2,546,000 for the year ended
December 31, 1998 ("1998")a decrease of 44% or approximately $1,109,000. The
largest component of the Bank's interest income for 1999 was interest earned on
loans which was approximately $1,074,000, or approximately 75% percent of the
Bank's total interest income during 1999 and for 1998 was approximately
$1,978,000 or 77%, a decrease of approximately 2%. The remaining components of
the Bank's interest income were interest earned on securities and interest
earned on deposits with correspondent banks. During 1999, the Bank earned
approximately $215,000 in interest on securities, representing approximately 15%
of the Bank's total interest income in 1999 and approximately $148,000 or
approximately 10% percent of its interest income from interest earned on
deposits with correspondent banks in 1999 as compared to $386,000 in interest on
securities in 1998, representing approximately 15% of the Bank's total interest
income in 1998 and approximately $181,000, or approximately 7% percent of its
interest income from interest earned on securities.

         In addition to interest income, the Bank also had non-interest income
of approximately $1,308,000 in 1999 as compared to $1,766,000 during 1998. A
principal component of the Bank's non-interest income was exchange trading and
commissions of approximately $593,000 in 1999 as compared to $1,019,000 in 1998
which represents approximately 45% and 59% respectively of the Bank's
non-interest income. Another component of the Bank's non-interest income
consisted of financial service fees of approximately $715,000 in 1999 and
$515,000 in 1998 or approximately 55% percent and 29% of the Bank's
non-interest income respectively.


                                       27
<PAGE>

         Offsetting the Bank's interest income during 1999 was interest expense
of approximately $554,000 as compared to $895,000 in 1998, comprised principally
of approximately $543,000 and $879,000 respectively of interest paid on deposits
or approximately 98% of total interest income for both 1999 and 1998. Also
offsetting the Bank's interest income for 1999 was interest due to other banks
on their time deposits with the Bank of approximately $11,000, as compared to
$98,000 in 1998 or approximately 1% and 3% of the Bank's interest income during
1999 and 1998 respectively. Offsetting the Bank's non-interest income during
1999 was non-interest expenses of approximately $1,446,000 as compared to
$1,539,000 in 1998, comprised principally of salaries and related costs of
approximately $406,000 in 1999 and $724,000 in 1998 including equipment and
depreciation of approximately $93,000 in 1999 and $144,000 in 1998,
communication and transportation expenses of approximately $37,000 in 1999 and
$153,000 in 1998, approximately $210,000 in 1999 compared to $100,000 of outside
services in 1998 and processing costs and approximately $150,000 in 1999 as
compared to $115,000 of marketing and development costs in 1998.

         The Bank's net interest income after allowance for possible loan losses
of approximately $679,000 in 1999 and $773,000 in 1998 was approximately
$204,000 and $875,000 with non-interest income of approximately $1,308,000 and
$1,766,000, respectively for 1999 and 1998. Both were offset by non-interest
expenses of $1,446,000 in 1999 and $1,621,000 in 1998 thereby reducing income
before taxes to approximately $66,000 in 1999 compared to $1,023,000 in 1998
with income taxes of approximately $9,000 in 1999 and $130,000 in 1998 resulting
in net income of approximately $57,000 in 1999 compared to $893,000 from the
Bank's business in 1998. Net income for the Bank was approximately 2% of the
Bank's aggregated total non-interest income and interest income for 1999 and
approximately 21% in 1998.

         The Company believes that the economic crisis in Russia, which caused
an economic slowdown in the Republic of Moldova, resulting in less disposable
income to the Moldovan population, had an adverse impact on the revenues and
income of the Bank, and subsequently, the Company. Such slowdown may continue to
have such adverse impact. In addition, the Moldovan Leu, the currency of the
Republic of Moldova, has undergone significant devaluation, which has also had a
significant and adverse impact on the revenue and income of the Company.
Additional devaluation of the currency may continue to such an adverse impact.


                                       28
<PAGE>

THE INSURANCE COMPANY

         Although the Insurance Company began operations in 1995 it is still in
a expansion phase. The Insurance Company derives its revenues from premium
payments from its insureds and from the investment of its insurance reserves.
Although the Insurance Company earned approximately $152,000 in gross earned
premiums during 1999 and approximately $240,000 in 1998, earned premiums ceded
to reinsurers approximated $84,000 in 1999 and $139,000 in 1998 resulting in
approximately $68,000 and $101,000 in net premiums earned of the Insurance
Company's total revenues of approximately $174,000 and $270,000 for 1999 and
1998 respectively. During 1999, the Insurance Company also received net interest
income of approximately $35,000 compared to $72,000 in 1998 and commissions
earned from reinsurance of approximately $25,000 in 1999 as compared to $42,000
in 1998. During 1999, the Insurance Company also had approximately $46,000 of
other income as compared to $55,000 in 1998. The Insurance Company's total
expenses of approximately $152,000 in 1999 resulted in net income of
approximately $21,000 (after a provision for taxes of $1,000) during 1999 as
compared to total expenses in 1998 of $290,000 which resulted in a net loss of
($20,000.)

         The Company believes that the economic crisis in Russia, which caused
an economic slowdown in the Republic of Moldova, resulting in less disposable
income to the Moldovan population, had an adverse impact on the revenues and
income of the Bank and, therefore, the Company. Such slowdown may continue to
have such adverse impact. In addition, the Moldovan Leu, the currency of the
Republic of Moldova, has undergone significant devaluation, which has also had a
significant and adverse impact on the revenue and income of the Company.
Additional devaluation of the currency may continue to have such an adverse
impact.

HOTEL

         During 1999 the Hotel derived revenues of approximately $2,148,000 as
compared to $2,587,000 in 1998 from room rentals of guest accommodations,
leasing of office space, and restaurant operations. The Hotel's approximate
$1,136,000 in cost of revenue during 1999 represented approximately 53% of the
Hotel's revenues, leaving a gross profit of approximately $1,012,000 for 1999 as
compared to the Hotel's $1,607,000 in cost of revenue during 1998 which
represented approximately 62% of the Hotel's revenues, leaving a gross profit of
approximately $980,000.

         Selling, administrative and general expenses of the Hotel for 1999 were
approximately $623,000 or 29% as compared to $484,000 or 18% of the Hotel's
revenues for 1998. Principal deductions from revenues before net income for such
periods were (a) the above noted revenue costs, (b) the above selling,
administrative and general expenses and (c) income taxes of approximately
$67,000 or 3% of revenue in 1999 and $166,000 or 6% of revenues in 1998.


                                       29
<PAGE>

         The Hotel's net income for 1999 was approximately $355,000 (of which
$33,000 was interest income) or approximately 17% of its revenues as compared to
approximately $408,000 (of which $78,000 was interest income) or approximately
15% of its revenues for 1998.

         The Company believes that the economic crisis in Russia, which caused
an economic slowdown in the Republic of Moldova, resulting in less disposable
income to the Moldovan population, had an adverse impact on the revenues and
income of the Hotel and, therfeore, of the Company. Such slowdown may continue
to have such adverse impact. In addition, the Moldovan Leu, the currency of the
Republic of Moldova, has undergone significant devaluation, which has also had a
significant and adverse impact on the revenue and income of the Company.
Additional devaluation of the currency may continue to have such an adverse
impact.

INTERCOMSOFT

         Intercomsoft derives its revenues from being the exclusive supplier of
proprietary technology, equipment and consumables required to produce secure
essential government documents (e.g. passports, drivers' licenses etc.), to the
Government of the Republic of Moldova pursuant to the Supply Agreement. During
1999, Intercomsoft had revenues of approximately $2,837,000 as compared to
$4,154,000 in 1998. During 1999, Intercomsoft's cost of revenues was
approximately $1,031,000 or 36% as compared to $1,662,000 or 40% in 1998. This
resulted in gross profits for Intercomsoft of approximately $1,806,000 and
$2,492,000 for 1999 and 1998 respectively.

         Selling, general and administrative expenses for Intercomsoft in 1999
were approximately $79,000 or approximately 3% of its revenues as compared to
$130,000 or approximately 3% of its revenues in 1998.

         Intercomsoft had net income of approximately $1,781,000 (of which
$54,000 was interest income) and $2,362,000 for 1999 and 1998 respectively.

         Intercomsoft derives all of its revenues and income pursuant to the
Supply Contract. If for any reason (or for no reason) the Supply Contract were
terminated, the terms were materially or adversely amended, or business reduced,
such event would have a material adverse effect on Intercomsoft as well as the
Company.

         The Company believes that the economic crisis in Russia, which caused
an economic slowdown in the Republic of Moldova, resulting in less disposable
income to the Moldovan population, had an adverse impact on the revenues and
income of Intercomsoft and, therefore, of the Company. Such slowdown may
continue to have such adverse impact. In addition, the Moldovan Leu, the
currency of the Republic of Moldova, has undergone significant devaluation,
which has also had a significant and adverse impact on the revenue and income
of the Company. Additional devaluation of the currency may continue to such
an adverse impact.

THE COMPANY (AS CONSOLIDATED)

         The Company's consolidated revenues in 1999 were $7,981,000 as compared
to $11,273,000 in 1998. Its consolidated cost of revenue and operating expenses
in 1999 were $7,745,000 as compared to $7,959,000 in 1998. In 1999, the
Company's consolidated income from operations before income tax and minority
interest was $236,000, from which was deducted approximately $77,000 for income
taxes and $124,000 for the Government of Moldova's 35% interest in the Hotel as
compared to $3,314,000 in 1998 from which was deducted approximately $221,000
for income taxes and $143,000 for the Government of Moldova's 35% interest in
the Hotel. Accordingly, the Company's resulting consolidated net income was
($89,000) for 1999 as compared to $2,950,000 for 1998. The Company's
consolidated net earnings per share were ($.007) for 1999 as compared to $.25
for 1998.

         On April 3, 2000, Magnum Associates Limited ("Magnum"), a controlling
stockholder of the Company beneficially owned by the Company's Chairman of the
Board, demanded payment to it of the indebtedness of the Company owed to it in
the principal amount of $1,162,000, together with interest thereon through the
date of payment. The Company paid the sum of $1,349,000 to Magnum on April 5,
2000 pursuant to such demand. The Company utilized substantially all of its
available cash to make such payment. (See Item 9 "Directors, Executive
Officers, Promoters and Control Persons").

         The Company believes that the economic crisis in Russia, which caused
an economic slowdown in the Republic of Moldova, resulting in less disposable
income to the Moldovan population, had an adverse impact on the revenues and
income of Intercomsoft and, therefore, of the Company. Such slowdown may
continue to have such adverse impact. In addition, the Moldovan Leu, the
currency of the Republic of Moldova, has undergone significant devaluation,
which has also had a significant and adverse impact on the revenue and income of
the Company. Additional devaluation of the currency may continue to have such an
adverse impact. Further, the significant increase of the Company's expenses from
1998 to 1999 had a material adverse impact on the Company's consolidated income.

Liquidity & Capital Resources

         The Company believes that its existing source of liquidity and its
current revenues and cash flow, will be adequate to sustain its current
operations and to satisfy its current working capital and capital expenditure
requirements for the next twelve (12) months, with the exception of the Bank,
which requires capitalization of no less then $1.1 million prior to July 1, 2000
to maintain its status as a bank in Moldova.

         The Company plans to continue seeking other acquisition candidates,
both domestically and internationally, which may be acquired through the
issuance of securities and/or the payment of available cash.

Year 2000 Compliance

         The Company believes it is Year 2000 compliant and experienced no
difficulties associated with the rollover of the latter two digit year value to
00.

ITEM 12.  CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

         Two loans were made by the Bank to Dufermol, a chain of duty free shops
in the Republic of Moldova whose principal shareholder is the Chairman of the
Board of the Company. The first loan is an $83,0000 principal amount loan, bears
interest at the rate of 35% per annum, was made on February 9, 1999 and matures
on February 9, 2001. The second loan is a $60,000 principal amount loan, bears
interest at the rate of 35% per annum, was made November 16, 1999 and matures on
May 16, 2000. It should be noted that 35% per annum was the rate in effect in
Moldova at the time such loans were made.

         The Bank also made a $72,000 principal amount loan bearing interest at
the rate of 35% per annum to NIT, a television station in the Republic of
Moldova whose principal shareholder is the Chairman of the Board of the Company.
The loan was made on August 4, 1999 and matures on February 4, 2001.

         Both of the aforementioned loans are current and are not in default.

         The Bank also made a $500,000 principal amount loan to Polen S.R.L., an
entity doing business in the Republic of Moldova, whose beneficial owner is the
Company's Chairman of the Board. The loan was not paid when it matured. As a
result of non-payment of such loan when it matured in 1999, the Bank foreclosed
on the building held as collateral for such loan, which is valued at $682,000,
based on an independent appraisal from Pricewaterhouse Coopers dated February
25, 2000. The Bank intends to use this property (which is located a few doors
away from its main facility in Chisinau) as a client services annex to the Bank
and for other expanded banking services.

         Several other entities in Moldova, which are affiliates of the
Company's Chairman of the Board, are customers of the Bank and borrow funds from
the Bank on an arm's length basis.

         On March 23, 1999 the Insurance Company made a $88,000 principal
amount loan to Dufermol, a chain of duty free stores in the Republic of
Moldova whose principal shareholder is the Chairman of the Board of the
Company. The loan was made on March 23, 1999 and matures on March 22, 2001.
The loan is current and is not in default.

         During the period April 1, 1999 to June 30, 1999 ("3rd Quarter 1999"),
the Hotel acquired ownership of a television series that was filmed on its
premises for approximately $58,000. The television series was produced by NIT, a
company controlled by the Company's Chairman of the Board. The Hotel intends to
display the television series on its internal television network and attempt to
sell the rights, in part, to other hotels in Russian speaking countries. The
cost of the rights to the television series is amortized over a period of five
years.


                                       39
<PAGE>

         The Insurance Company has issued to the Hotel a $7 million
comprehensive liability policy and received premiums of approximately $54,000
from the Hotel in 1999.

         The Insurance Company maintains a current account and deposit accounts
with the Bank.

         The Insurance Company insures the property of the Bank.

         On April 3, 2000, Magnum Associates Limited ("Magnum"), a controlling
stockholder of the Company beneficially owned by the Company's Chairman of the
Board, demanded payment to it of the indebtedness of the Company owed to it in
the principal amount of $1,162,000, together with interest thereon through the
date of payment. The Company paid the sum of $1,349,000 to Magnum on April 5,
2000 pursuant to such demand. The Company utilized substantially all of its
available cash to make such payment.

         The Company believes all transactions conducted with affiliates are on
terms that could be obtained from non-affiliated independent third parties on an
arms length basis.

REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT AUDITORS

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of
Trimol Group, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Trimol Group,
Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company") as of December 31, 1999 and the related
consolidated statements of operations, changes in shareholders' equity and cash
flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility
of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on
these financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards
in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit
to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free
of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence
supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit
also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates
made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement
presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our
opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present
fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of
December 31, 1999 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the year
then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the
United States.

TRIMOL GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The audited consolidated financial statements of Trimol Group, Inc. (the
"Company") included herein have been prepared in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

NOTE 2 - ACQUISITIONS

(a) GENERAL

On January 6, 1998 the Company, which had not engaged in any significant
operations for at least the three previous years, acquired all of the shares of
four holding corporations that own capital stock of three companies with
business operations in the Republic of Moldova ("Moldova"). The capital stock of
such three companies comprises all of the issued and outstanding shares of an
insurance company, Exim Asint S.A. (the "Insurance Company"), a bank, Banca
Comerciala pe Actiuni "Export - Import" (the "Bank"), and 65% of the issued and
outstanding shares of the Jolly Alon Limited (the "Hotel"), a hotel. The shares
in the four holding corporations were acquired by the Company in exchange for an
aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock with a par value of
U.S. $0.01 per share. These four companies were acquired from corporations owned
by the principal stockholder of the Company.

Furthermore, on May 6, 1998, the Company acquired all of the issued and
outstanding shares of Intercomsoft Limited ("Intercomsoft"), an Irish
corporation, in exchange for 1,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock.

(b) ACCOUNTING FOR THE ACQUISITIONS

As a result of the January 6, 1998 acquisitions, the new shareholders retained a
controlling interest in the combined group. For this reason, the business
combination was accounted for using the reverse purchase method. The Company had
no significant net assets as at January 6, 1998.

The acquisition of Intercomsoft has been accounted for in a manner similar to a
pooling of interest, since the Company and Intercomsoft were enterprises under
common control. The Company's financial statements include the results of
operation, financial position and cash flow of Intercomsoft as though it had
been a part of the Company for the whole year of 1998.

(c) THE OPERATING COMPANIES

The Insurance Company began operations at the beginning of 1995 and is active in
the general insurance sector and provides property and liability coverage to the
Moldovan market. Commencing in the last quarter of 1997, the Insurance Company
also provides reinsurance services to the Moldovan insurance market.

The Bank was established on April 26, 1994, received its General Banking License
from the National Bank of Moldova on April 29, 1994 and began activity as a new
bank on June 1, 1994. The Bank's activities include, inter alia, receipt of
monetary deposits, granting credit, transacting in foreign currency, financing
international trade, issuing credit cards, investment in securities, retaining
and managing marketable documents and other assets for other parties, and
managing payments.

The Hotel was established on October 15, 1991 and operates and manages the Jolly
Alon Hotel and rents stores and offices located on Hotel property. The principal
guests of the Hotel are business persons from all over the world and
diplomats. The tourism sector with respect to Hotel guests is marginal and,
accordingly, seasonability is not a factor.


                                      F-6

Intercomsoft was incorporated in February, 1995 as a non resident Irish
registered company. Intercomsoft supplies equipment and auxiliary materials
intended for production of computerized documents (passports, drivers' licenses,
car licenses and ID cards), and the software that is necessary for the operation
of this equipment, and provides it to the Moldovan Ministry of Economics (see
Note 3).

NOTE 3 - RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

The following factors relating to the Company and its business should be
carefully considered:

         (a) The Company's subsidiaries operate in Moldova, a former Republic of
the Soviet Union, and are heavily dependent on Russia and on a number of former
Republics of the Soviet Union. Accordingly, the current political and economic
situation in Moldova, Russia and the former Republics of the Soviet Union which
have historically been unstable, could have a material adverse effect on the
Company and its subsidiaries. Political uncertainty and instability in the
Republic of Moldova may also play a roll in the future revenue and income of the
Company and its subsidiaries.

         (b) The Moldovan Ministry of Economics ("Ministry") is Intercomsoft's
only customer. In November 1999, the Company learned that the Ministry of
Economy Affairs and Reform of the Republic of Moldova was soliciting bids to
select an audit company to review the contract between Intercomsoft and the
Government of the Republic of Moldova ("GRM"), pursuant to which Intercomsoft is
granted the right to act as the exclusive supplier of the technology required to
produce secure essential documents to GRM. The Company believes that the review
will involve the assessment of such contract comparing it with international
norms for prices charged for the services performed. No assurances can be given
when, if ever, such a review shall begin or the results therefrom. A loss, or a
substantial change in the terms of such contract could, however, have a material
adverse effect on Intercomsoft and the Company

         (c) The Insurance Company cedes insurance to other companies, the major
one being Munchener Ruckversicherungs Gesellschaft (Munich Re). These
reinsurance contracts do not relieve the Insurance Company from its primary
obligations to policyholders. Failure of reinsurers to honor their obligations
could result in losses to the Insurance Company. In order to reduce its credit
risk, the Insurance Company seeks to do business only with financially sound
reinsurance companies and regularly reviews the financial strength of reinsurers
used. No provision for uncollectible amounts has been made since none of the
receivables is deemed to be uncollectible.

         (d) The Bank currently operates under a B-License issued by the
National Bank of Moldova ("NBM"). NBM regularly revises the capital requirements
for the banks. In accordance with current regulations, banks operating under a
B-License must maintain a shareholders' equity of no less than 48 Million
Moldovan Leu ("MDL") as of July 1, 2000, which amount equals approximately $4.1
Million U.S. Dollars at the exchange rate in effect at December 31, 1999. The
Bank's shareholders' equity as of December 31, 1999 amounts to approximately 35
Million MDL; approximately $3 Million U.S. Dollars. Therefore, the Bank must
increase its shareholders' equity by approximately 13 Million MDL, or
approximately $1.1 Million U.S. Dollars, by July 1, 2000 in order to maintain
its current banking license in Moldova. In addition, NBM has advised the Company
that as of January 1, 2001, banks with a B-License will be required to increase
its equity to a minimum of 76 Million MDL, or approximately $6.5 Million U.S.
Dollars Should the Bank be unable to meet these capitalization requirements, it
may lose its license to operate. Although the Company believes that the Bank
will increase its shareholders' equity to the required amounts, in the event
that the Bank is not able to do so, the Bank's ability to operate as a bank in
Moldova could be terminated, which would have a material adverse effect on the
Company.

NOTE 4 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(a)       FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION

                  1. The Company operates in Moldova, and the currency in which
         the Company transacts most of its operations is the MDL. At January 1,
         1998 the three year accumulated rate of inflation was approximately
         80%. A country is generally considered to be in hyperinflation if the
         three year accumulated rate of inflation is 100% or more. During 1998,
         the Company's consolidated financial statements were prepared assuming
         that the Moldovan economy remained highly inflationary, as the
         inflation rate had historically been volatile and had just declined to
         a rate below 100%. The United States Dollar was used as the Company's
         functional currency during 1988.

                      In the second quarter of 1999, it was determined that, as
         of January 1, 1999, the three year accumulated rate of inflation was
         approximately 42.4%. Accordingly, management concluded that the
         Company's functional currency should revert to the Moldovan Leu from
         the United States Dollar as from that date.

                       During the year ended December 31, 1999 fluctuations in
         the MDL and the United States Dollar reduced the Company's net income
         in the amounts reflected in the Company's Consolidated Statement of
         Changes in Shareholders' Equity under the line item "Other
         Comprehensive Loss", as a component of Shareholders' Equity. During the
         same period in 1998, such fluctuations were not included in the
         Company's financial statements as the matter was not material to the
         presentation of the Company's financial condition.

                  2.       YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999
                           The Company has determined that effective January 1,
         1999 the MDL is the functional currency. Accordingly, the assets and
         liabilities denominated in foreign currency are translated into U.S.
         Dollars at the current rate of exchange existing at period-end and
         revenues and expenses are translated at average monthly exchange rates.
         Related translation adjustments are reported as a separate component of
         shareholders' equity, whereas, gains or losses resulting from foreign
         currency transactions are included in results of operations.

                  3.       YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1998
                           The Company's foreign subsidiaries have the U.S.
         Dollar designated as their functional currency for the year ended
         December 31, 1998. Financial statements of these foreign subsidiaries
         are translated to U.S. Dollars for consolidation purposes using current
         rates of exchange for monetary assets and liabilities and historical
         rates of exchange for non-monetary assets and related elements of
         expense. Revenue and other expense elements are translated at rates
         that approximate the rates in effect on the transaction dates.
         Translation gains and losses are included in the Company's Consolidated
         Statement of Operations.

                  4.       EXCHANGE RATE OF THE DOLLAR
                           The exchange rate of the MDL to the U.S. Dollar was
         8.3226 to 1.00 as of December 31, 1998 and 11.5902 to 1.00 as of
         December 31, 1999, resulting in a devaluation of the MDL of 39.26% for
         the year ended December 31, 1999.

(b) PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION

The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of the
Company and its operating subsidiaries and their holding companies.

Intercompany balances have been eliminated in the consolidation.

(c) USE OF ESTIMATES

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted
accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that
affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of
contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and
the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.
Actual results could differ from those estimates.

(d) CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

Cash and cash equivalents are defined as cash on hand, cash items in the process
of collection and amounts due from correspondent banks and the National Bank of
Moldova. With respect to the Hotel, the Bank, and Intercomsoft, the Company
regards all its liquid investments, whose maturity as of the date of the
investment is less than three months, as cash equivalents. With respect to the
Insurance Company, cash equivalents consist of short term highly liquid
investments that are both (a) readily convertible to known amounts of cash and
(b) so near to maturity that they present an insignificant risk of changes in
value due to changing interest rates.

(e) PROVISION FOR DOUBTFUL ACCOUNTS

Provisions for doubtful accounts are made on the basis of identification of
specific accounts whose collection is in doubt.

(f) SECURITIES

Investments in fixed maturity and equity securities are accounted for under the
provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 115,
"Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities". SFAS No. 115
requires management to classify its investment portfolio into three categories:
(i) held to maturity, (ii) available for sale, and (iii) trading securities.
Specific criteria are set forth for determining these classifications. SFAS No.
115 requires unrealized gains and losses for trading securities to be included
in net income while unrealized gains and losses for securities available for
sale are to be reported as a separate component of shareholders' equity, net of
related income tax, until realized. Held-to-maturity securities are recorded at
their amortized cost. Declines in the fair value of individual held-to-maturity
securities below their cost that are other than temporary have resulted in
write-downs of the individual securities to their fair value. The related
write-downs are included in earnings as realized losses.

All investments in securities are classified as held-to-maturity, since the
Company has the intent and ability to hold the securities to maturity.

(g) LOANS

Loans are stated at the principal amount outstanding, net of any unearned
income. Interest on loans is recognized on the accrual basis and is credited to
interest income based upon the principal amount outstanding.

Loans are considered impaired and are placed on nonaccrual status when
collection of all or a portion of principal or interest in accordance with
contractual terms, is in doubt. Interest on nonaccrual loans is credited to
principal or recognized as income on a cash basis.


                                      F-9
<PAGE>

(h) ALLOWANCE FOR POSSIBLE LOAN LOSSES

The allowance for possible loan losses is established through provisions for
possible loan losses charged against income. Loans deemed to be uncollectible
are charged against the allowance for possible loan losses, and subsequent
recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance.

The allowance for possible loan losses is based upon management's estimate of
the amount necessary to maintain the allowance at a level adequate to absorb
estimated potential loan losses.

The determination of the adequacy of the allowance for possible loan losses
hinges upon various judgments and assumptions, including but not necessarily
limited to, management's assessment of potential losses on individual loans,
Moldovan and international economic conditions, loan portfolio composition,
transfer risks, and prior loan loss experience.

(i) PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT

Buildings, equipment and improvements are stated at cost less accumulated
depreciation computed on a straight-line basis. The useful life of the premises
and equipment is based on management's estimate of the period during which
economic benefits can be derived from these assets.

In accordance with the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No.
121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Long-Lived Assets
to be Disposed Of", the Company examines the possibility of decreases in the
value of fixed assets when events or changes in circumstances reflect the fact
that their recorded value may not be recoverable.

Property received in full satisfaction of loans is valued at the lesser of the
fair market value of the property received or the carrying value of the loan.
The excess of the recorded investment in the loan satisfied over the fair value
of assets received is reported as a current loss in the period of satisfaction.

(j) INVENTORIES

Inventories, consisting of merchandise purchased for resale by the Hotel, are
valued at the lower of cost (determined on the first-in, first-out basis) or
market, and are classified as other assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

(k) INCOME TAXES

Pursuant to SFAS No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes", deferred tax assets or
liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to
differences between the accounting basis and the tax basis of the Company's
assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using
enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which
those temporary differences are expected to be realized or settled. The
Company's deferred tax asset is reviewed periodically and adjustments to such
assets are recognized as deferred income tax expense or benefit based on
management's judgments relating to the realizability of such asset. A valuation
allowance related to deferred tax assets is recognized when, in management's
judgment, it is more likely than not that all, or a portion of such deferred
assets, will not be realized.

(l) FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

In the ordinary course of business, the Bank has entered into off-balance sheet
financial instruments consisting of commitments to extend credit, commercial
letters of credit, and guarantees. Such financial instruments are recorded in
the financial statements when they are funded or when related fees are incurred
or received.

(m) FOREIGN EXCHANGE CONTRACTS

Foreign exchange contracts which qualify under applicable accounting guidelines
as hedges of foreign currency exposures are revalued at the spot rate with any
forward premium or discount recognized over the life of the contract in net
interest revenue. Gains and losses on foreign exchange contracts which qualify
as a hedge of a firm commitment are deferred and recognized as part of the
measurement of the related transaction, unless deferral of a loss would lead to
recognizing losses on the transaction in later periods.

(n) GROSS PREMIUMS WRITTEN

All insurance premiums due with respect to insurance contracts entered into in
the period, are included in gross written premiums irrespective of whether they
relate in whole or in part to a later period. Gross reinsurance ceded and
unearned premiums are included within gross written premiums, outwards
reinsurance premiums and unearned premiums, respectively. Gross premiums are net
of premium reimbursements. The insurance premiums are both direct and assumed
premiums.

(o) RECOGNITION OF PREMIUM REVENUE

Property, liability and assumed premiums are generally recognized as revenue on
a pro rata basis over the policy term. The portion of the premiums that will be
earned in the future is deferred and reported as unearned premiums.

(p) REINSURANCE

Reinsurance is accounted for depending on whether the "reinsurance risk" is
received or transferred. In the normal course of business, the Insurance Company
seeks to reduce the loss that may arise from catastrophes or other events that
cause unfavorable underwriting results by reinsuring certain levels of risk in
various areas of exposure with other insurance enterprises or reinsurers.

Amounts recoverable from reinsurers are estimated in a manner consistent with
the claim liability associated with the reinsured policy.

(q) DEFERRED POLICY ACQUISITION COSTS

Commissions and other costs of acquiring insurance that vary with and are
primarily related to the production of new and renewal business, are deferred
and amortized over the terms of the policies or reinsurance treaties to which
they relate.

(r) LOSSES AND LOSS ADJUSTMENT RESERVE

The liability for losses and loss adjustment expenses includes an amount
determined for losses incurred but not yet reported, which is the Insurance
Company's best estimate and is based on the instructions prescribed by the
insurance supervisor of Moldova and the regulations thereunder. In terms of
these regulations, the Insurance Company is required to maintain a reserve at
specific rates of net premiums earned. These required reserves are based on
estimates and market experience as a whole and are intended to cover future
claims lodged with the Insurance Company. In addition, individual claims known
but not paid are provided for.

Management believes that the loss and loss adjustment reserves established for
unpaid claims are adequate. While management utilizes available information on
unpaid claims to establish these reserves, unanticipated changes may occur.

(s) EMPLOYEES' BENEFITS

Contributions are made by the Company to the Government's health, retirement
benefit and unemployment accounts at the statutory rates in force during the
period, based on gross salary payments. The cost of these payments is charged to
the statement of income in the same period as the related salary cost.

(t) INCOME PER SHARE

Income per share of common stock have been computed on the basis of the weighted
average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted earnings per share
is based on the weighted average number of shares and common stock equivalents
outstanding. The Company had no common stock equivalents during the periods
presented.

(u) COMPREHENSIVE INCOME

The Company adopted the provisions of the SFAS No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive
Income". Comprehensive income is defined as any change in equity from
transactions and other events originating from nonowner sources, and is
displayed as accumulated comprehensive income in the Statements of Changes in
Shareholders' Equity at December 31, 1999.

(b) On February 25, 1999, the Company entered into employment agreements
(collectively the "Employment Agreements") with three of its executives (the
"Executives") each of which is for a term of five years commencing January 1,
1999 and provide for aggregate annual compensation of $360,000 in the first year
of the Employment Agreement, subject to increase to an aggregate of $650,000 in
the event that the Company consummates an acquisition of a business with pre-tax
profits of $3,000,000 or more in such year. In addition, the Employment
Agreements provide that for every $1,000,000 of the Company's excess net pre-tax
profits, as defined, generated by the Company in the determining year, the
Executives will receive incentive warrants ("Incentive Warrants") to purchase an
aggregate of 200,000 shares of the Company's common stock (the "Common Stock")
up to a maximum of 3,000,000 shares of Common Stock per year at an exercise
price equal to the closing price of Common Stock on the issue date. As of
December 31, 1999, no Incentive Warrants were outstanding.

(c) In March 1999, the Company entered into a consulting agreement pursuant to
which the Company issued 16,000 of its restricted shares of Common Stock valued
at $10 per share in consideration of the services to be performed under such
consulting agreement. Such shares of Common Stock are restricted under the
meaning of Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 144.

(d) In May, 1999 the Company issued warrants to purchase 1,400,000 shares of its
Common Stock ("the Warrants") to the Executives. The Warrants may be exercised
for a period of five years at an exercise price of $11.50 per share. Effective
February 28, 2000 the Company canceled these warrants and issued 1,400,000
warrants on the same terms, at an exercise price of $.50 per share.

During 1999, the Company granted five year warrants to purchase up to 60,000
shares of the Company's Common Stock, 30,000 of which are at an exercise price
of $11.50 per share and 30,000 of which are at an exercise price of $.75 per
share, to certain members of the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of
Directors.

As of December 31, 1999, Warrants to purchase 1,460,000 shares of Common Stock
were issued and outstanding.

(A) Pursuant to a resolution of the Company's Board of Directors on March 31,
2000, the Company approved payment of the principal balance of $1,162,000 plus
interest from January 6, 1998 to the date of payment (April 5, 2000). Prior to
this resolution, the liability had been deemed non-interest bearing. As of
December 31, 1999, the Company accrued $166,000 representing interest from
January 6, 1998 to December 31, 1999, which amount is included in other
liabilities on the accompanying 1999 Balance Sheet.


                                      F-20
<PAGE>


During 1999, the Bank loaned $500,000 to a corporation whose beneficial owner is
the Chairman of the Board of the Company. As a result of non-payment, the Bank
foreclosed on the building which was held as collateral. The Bank intends to use
the building, which is included in property and equipment in the financial
statements, as an additional banking facility.

In addition, during 1999 the Hotel acquired ownership of a television series
that was produced by a company controlled by the Chairman of the Board of the
Company for approximately $58,000. The Hotel intends to display the television
series on its internal television network and attempt to sell rights, in part,
to other hotels in the Russian speaking countries.

NOTE 17 - FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS WITH OFF-BALANCE SHEET RISK

In the normal course of business, the Company is party to financial instruments
with off-balance sheet risk, including commitments to purchase foreign exchange
contracts, guarantees, letters of credit, and unutilized credit lines. These
instruments involve, to varying degrees, elements of credit and interest rate
risk in excess of the amount recognized in the consolidated balance sheets. The
contract or notional amounts of those instruments reflect the extent of
involvement the Company has in these particular classes of financial
instruments. The Company's exposure to credit loss in the event of
nonperformance by the other party with respect to unused credit lines and
standby letters of credit is represented by the contractual amount of those
instruments. The Company uses the same credit policies in making commitments and
conditional obligations as it does for on-balance sheet instruments. For forward
commitments, the contract or notional amounts exceed the Company's exposure to
credit loss.

Unused credit lines are agreements to lend to a customer, provided the customer
meet all conditions established in the contract. Commitments have fixed
expiration dates and may require payment of a fee. The total commitment amounts
do not necessarily represent total future cash requirements, since many
commitments are not expected to be drawn down.

Letters of credit are conditional commitments issued by the Company to guarantee
the performance by a customer to a third party. The credit risk involved in
issuing letters of credit is essentially the same as that involved in extending
loans to customers.

Amounts of the Bank's financial instruments with off-balance sheet risk are as
follows:

NOTE 18 - REGULATORY MATTERS

(a) The Bank maintains at all times a level of reserves in MDL equal to 15% of
the amount of the total attracted funds in MDL and hard currency. At least 30%
of the total amount of reserves must be kept in MDL at a correspondent account
with the National Bank of Moldova.

The Bank may conduct operations that will reduce its balance in the account
below the level of the required reserves. In such case until the end of the
report period the Bank must increase the amount of the required reserves so that
the average amount of MDL for the report period meets the required level.

                                      F-21

<PAGE>


The NBM may change at its discretion the norm of the level of the required
reserves in conformity with the monetary and currency policy of the Republic of
Moldova.

(b) The maximum foreign currency exchange exposure (the difference in MDL
between the total assets and the total liabilities, including off balance sheet
items, for each currency divided by the total normative capital) that is
authorized by the National Bank of Moldova is 10% for each currency or 20% for
all the foreign currencies taken together.

(c) See Note 4 relating to the capitalization requirements of the Bank.

NOTE 19 - FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The carrying value of short-term financial instruments, among which the foreign
exchange contracts, as well as receivables and payables arising in the ordinary
course of business, approximates fair value because of the relatively short
period of time between their origination and expected realization. Quoted market
prices are used for most investments and for loans where available. For
performing loans where no quoted market prices are available, contractual cash
flows are discounted at quoted secondary market rates or estimated market rates
if available. Otherwise, sales of comparable loan portfolios or current market
origination rates for loans with similar terms and risk characteristics are
used. For loans with doubt as to collectibility, expected cash flows are
discounted using an appropriate rate considering time of collection and a
premium for the uncertainty of the flows. The value of the collateral is also
considered.
