Item 1.           Changes in Control of Registrant.

On September 27, 2000, Gary D. Morgan, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of
Win-Gate sold 4,294,000 shares of Win-Gate common stock held by him to Tremaine
Trading Co., an Isle of Man company, for $42,940.00. The sale was a result of an
agreement by Mr. Morgan to personally pay a finder's fee in Win-Gate common
stock to Tremaine if Tremaine introduced Win-gate to an entity that would
provide Win-Gate with not less than $3.0 million in loans or equity. Item 5
describes the resulting loan.

Prior to the transaction, Mr. Morgan owned 8,294,000 shares of Win-Gate common
stock, representing approximately 45.7% of Win-Gate's outstanding common stock,

4,000,000 shares of Win-Gate common stock, representing approximately 22.1% of
Win-Gate's outstanding common stock and Tremaine now owns 4,294,000 shares,
representing 23.7% of Win-Gate outstanding common stock (each as of September
27, 2000). Tremaine is now Win-Gate's largest shareholder.

2000 by and among Win-Gate, Globaltron, Gary D. Morgan ("Morgan" and along with
Globaltron, the "Guarantors"), and Colpafinsa, S.A., a Panamanian corporation
("CSA"). CSA loaned Win-Gate the principal amount of $4.0 million plus interest
at the base rate announced by Citibank N.A plus 1% (the "Loan") and evidenced by
a promissory note (the "Note") due on or before the earlier of (i) six months

Qualifying Private Placement, as defined below (the "Maturity Date"). A
Qualifying Private Placement is defined as a private placement of Win-Gate's
Common Stock or any other class of its equity securities with a preference (as
to liquidation, dividend or otherwise) to the Common Stock of not



less than $20.0 million to persons unrelated to Colpafinsa ( the "Qualifying
Private Placement") for cash consideration paid of $10 or more per share.

which pledge is subject to a senior pledge of Morgan's shares to GNB Bank, S.A.,
a Panamanian bank ("GNB Bank"). This Loan is subordinate to the $5.0 million
loan made by GNB Bank to Win-Gate, which is guaranteed by Globaltron and
evidenced by a Loan agreement dated February 29, 2000 and subsequently
guaranteed by Morgan on September 27, 2000 pursuant to a Pledge and Security

Of the initial $2.0 million received by Win-Gate, as assignee of Morgan,

Note and Loan is payable upon the Maturity Date.
