ALPHA FIBER MERGER CORPORATION-

DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS
ALPHA FIBER MERGER CORPORATION

ALPHA FIBER MERGER CORPORATION (the "Company or "AFI"), is a newly formed
Colorado corporation.  The Company holds exclusive worldwide commercialization,
distribution and sales rights to unique, patentable processes which convert
agricultural waste field straw into a highly valued fibrous plastic
reinforcement material ("FIBE").  FIBEX represents a technological breakthrough
that will revolutionize the plastics manufacturing industry by meeting market
needs based on performance, weight, cost effectiveness and recyclability.

     AFI has established initial manufacturing protocols, produced trial run
sample material, confirmed full commercial production feasibility, conducted
preliminary independent testing, established trademark registration, licensed a
patent pending technology and established patentability on a proprietary
process, identified extensive markets and developed potential customers and
strategic partners.  Additionally, strong relationships have been built with
growers, governments and financial institutions which management believes will
aid in the successful construction and operation of its manufacturing facilities
in Canada where there is a significant, readily available supply of the specific
raw material required. The Company anticipates beginning plant construction in
the Fall of 2000, and also anticipates that the plant to be in operation in
mid-2001.

     The Company's strategic plan focuses on initially developing manufacturing
facilities to produce FIBEX as a primary reinforcement material to plastic
products manufacturers.  In the future, the Company may establish separate
wholly owned or joint ventured manufacturing facilities for the production of
various highly profitable finished composite and artificial wood products.

<PAGE> 12

FIBEX

     The product - FIBEX- is a new fiber reinforcement material with unique
characteristics valuable to the thermoplastics industry.  As the name implies,
it has a fibrous character, which enables superior bonding to polymers.  The
resulting composite has strength performance similar to fiberglass reinforced
plastic, but without the weight penalty of fiberglass.  Fiberglass is the
premium reinforcement material utilized for adding strength to plastic composite
products.  Based on test data, AFI anticipates being able to achieve weight
reductions of 10% to 20% as compared to fiberglass.  FIBEX will be cost
effective and competitively priced relative to its value in the marketplace.
Additionally, the FIBEX composite can be ground up and recycled by being
incorporated into new products. Independent testing has confirmed these
characteristics.  The unique properties of FIBEX have tremendous value to
plastic products manufacturers, solving long term problems for the industry,
such as weight, strength, stiffness, recyclability and product life-cycle.
Weight reduction as a result of using FIBEX is significant both for structural
applications such as plastic lumber as well as in automotive applications where
this contributes to vehicles with higher fuel efficiency.

     Based upon the Company's research, management believes there is a
tremendous interest in natural fibers resulting from the demand of the plastics
industry for light, strong, cost effective reinforcement materials.

Additionally, the lack of recyclability of mineral and glass filled plastic
has been a major motivating factor for the development of alternative materials.
The Company believes it is well ahead of any other company researching natural
fibers, and to the Company's knowledge, stands alone in the industry with two
commercially viable, proprietary technologies ready for implementation.

Market Opportunity

     AFI has identified existing markets representing over $200 million in
potential annual sales which it believes can be penetrated relatively quickly
in order to establish the utility of FIBEX.  The Company feels there is a
significant near-term opportunity in the injection molding industry for this
exceptional fiber, particularly for bins, totes and containers.  Reinforcement
materials have been used by the thermoplastics industry for years to improve the
overall characteristics and performance of the plastic.  Current industry
practice is to combine virgin or recycled polymers with other materials such as
minerals or fiberglass to manufacture a wide variety of thermoplastic
products.

Management believes that most consumers are not aware of the fact that the
majority of "plastic" products contain a significant amount of non-polymer
filler or reinforcement material.  The Company believes that the qualities of
FIBEX will position it as the premier alternative to current polymer compound
reinforcement materials. Plastic manufacturers, without retooling or major
modifications to their production line, can replace what they are currently
using with FIBEX. The injection molding industry is seeking materials like FIBEX
for performance, weight, cost and recyclability characteristics. There is also

<PAGE> 13

significant near term opportunity in the material handling market for an
alternative reinforcement material to manufacture composite pallets and
specialty containers. Overall, these products, when produced from plastic
resins and FIBEX, will provide the solutions to various problems this industry
has been facing, and seeking to solve, for quite some time.  AFI is prepared
to capitalize on the opportunities presented by these traditional markets.

     The automotive industry is especially keen on natural fibers as composite
reinforcement materials for the recyclability and overall weight reduction
characteristics of such fibers.  FIBEX can be utilized for everything from
dashboards, interior components, and electrical housings to trunk liners.
Currently, some automotive companies are endeavoring to replace fiberglass as
a primary reinforcement for polypropylene in automotive interior applications.

     The Company is also investigating the potentially significant emerging
markets for plastic lumber and reinforced concrete.  Management believes that
the Company's markets are large and growing rapidly.  The Company feels that
acceptance by only one or two of the Company's early target customers should
result in other end-product manufacturers quickly pulling FIBEX into their
manufacturing process as they see the benefits achieved by major players in
related industries.  This, together with exceptional opportunities for new
products made possible by FIBEX, give AFI the potential for rapid, sustained
growth.

Management / Advisors

     AFI feels it has attracted professionals with high caliber talent,
expertise, and experience who are committed to achieving its success.  In
addition to key industry experts, the Company has secured the services of an
international engineering, construction and construction management firm, a
business finance and venture capital partner experienced with assisting early
stage companies with public market access, and United States and Canadian
counsel experienced in international law, intellectual property protection, and
private and public securities offerings.

Strategic Alliances / Development Partners

     The Company has established relationships with market leaders for strategic
alliances and product development. These companies hold significant market share
in their product categories and were chosen by AFI because they ideally fit our
strategy due to their commitment to product improvement through innovation, as
well as their size, market penetration and product diversity. The acceptance of
FIBEX by these market leaders will serve to immediately confirm the superior
qualities of FIBEX and provide AFI with key market access.  Our negotiations
contemplate their independent development and testing of prototype products

<PAGE> 14

incorporating FIBEX.  Several of the companies have expressed an interest in a
financial investment in the Company.  We anticipate that the development
partners will negotiate purchase contracts for FIBEX prior to plant
completion.

Current Test Results

     Trials have been conducted using FIBEX to reinforce both high-density
polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP), the two most extensively used
thermoplastic resins.  The trial specimens were successfully produced containing
25% and 40% FIBEX by weight with the use of coupling agents. Results from the
evaluation of mechanical properties of the first samples show a 250 % increase
in the stiffness (modulus) for HDPE and a 175% increase for PP, as compared to
unfilled resin. These increases in stiffness make FIBEX a very attractive
reinforcement for plastic resins in all market segments.

     A comparison of the mechanical properties of FIBEX reinforced HDPE to those
of commercially available plastic lumber, one major potential market, is even
more impressive.  The stiffness and strength values for FIBEX are better than
those for all other types of fillers and reinforcers such as talc, mica, and
woodflour.  In comparison to fiberglass, the bending stiffness and bending
strength of FIBEX reinforced thermoplastic is equal to the fiberglass reinforced
thermoplastic. This is significant because it means that FIBEX can replace
fiberglass in structural plastic applications. When compared to other unfilled
and natural material filled products on the market, preliminary tests indicate
increases in strength and stiffness from 37% to 255%, and 168% to 287%,
respectively.

     AFI is currently optimizing the processing and compounding stages of FIBEX
based reinforced thermoplastic and expects the results to show further increases
in the mechanical and physical properties.

Technology

     AFI, through an affiliated company, has recently licensed a patent pending
technology that offers us a significant economic advantage. The technology
allows AFI to eliminate steps in the production process, saving capital and
operating costs. The technology further enhances our leading position in the
race to deliver flax fiber with enhanced mechanical properties to the plastics
industry and, more specifically, to the automotive industry. The license gives
us worldwide exclusive rights to the technology for the applications we are
pursuing.

patents. AFI's patent attorneys have opined that our original proprietary
technology and Fibex as a unique product are patentable.  This may dictate
securing more broadly based patents encompassing both the FIBEX production
process, the unique attributes it brings to the compounding process
in general and perhaps to specific compounded products.  FIBEX has been
trademarked in the U.S. and filings will follow in Canada.

Initial Plant Site

     Due to the abundance of its raw material supply for the manufacture of
FIBEX, AFI intends to locate its first operating plants in the province of
Saskatchewan, Canada.  Local and provincial government support has been
established, and is evidenced by commitments to provide to AFI land,
infrastructure and attractive tax incentives, along with training programs
and substantial wage reimbursements.  Additionally, AFI has the pledged support
of government agencies and community leaders to organize a cooperative to ensure
a long-term supply of quality raw material.  Canada Farm Credit, CIBC (the
largest commercial bank in Canada), and several other financing entities have
expressed strong interest in arranging any required debt financing.

JOVUS, LTD.- is a St. Vincent corporation.  Its primary purpose is to own and/or
hold intellectual property and the rights pertaining thereto.  It has no
other operations.

COMPETITION

  The plastics industry in which the Company operates is highly
  competitive.  Some of the company's principal competitors in certain business
  lines are substantially larger and better capitalized than the Company.
  Because of these resources, these companies may be better able than the
  Company to obtain new customers and to pursue new business opportunities or to
  survive periods of industry consolidation.

ALPHA'S MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

  The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Financial
  Statements and related notes thereto to be filed subsequently.

PLAN OF OPERATION

ALPHA

ALPHA does not currently have any external sources of working capital. ALPHA's
Management has not entered into any commitments for significant capital
expenditures.  Furthermore, there are no plans to hire additional employees
unless Management is successful in securing a substantial capital infusion.
On September 19, 2000 ALPHA entered into an Agreement with OAK BROOK. This
transaction was structured as a reverse acquisition whereby the existing
shareholders of ALPHA obtained control of OAK BROOK. At completion of this
business combination transaction, there can be no assurance that the combined
companies will have sufficient funds to undertake any significant
development, marketing and manufacturing activities. Accordingly, the
combined companies will be required to either seek additional debt or equity
financing or obtain funding from third parties, in exchange for which the
combined companies might be required to issue a substantial equity
position. There is no assurance that the combined companies will be able to
obtain additional financing on terms acceptable to the combined companies. If
Management is successful in obtaining additional funding, these funds will be
used primarily to provide working capital needed for repayment of outstanding
notes payable, product development, sales and marketing expense and to
finance research, development and advancement of intellectual property
concerns. A description of the ALPHA business is provided above.


JOVUS

JOVUS does not currently have any external sources of working capital. JOVUS's
Management has not entered into any commitments for significant capital
expenditures. On September 19, 2000, JOVUS entered into an Agreement to
effectively become a wholly-owned subsidiary of OAK BROOK.  This transaction
was structured as a forward triangular merger whereby the existing
shareholders of JOVUS obtained shares of the common stock of OAK BROOK.
At completion of this transaction, there can be no assurance that the
combined companies will have sufficient funds to undertake any significant
development, marketing and manufacturing activities. Accordingly, the
combined companies are required to either seek additional debt or equity
financing or obtain funding from third parties, in exchange for which the
combined companies might be required to issue a substantial equity position.
There is no assurance that the combined companies will be able to obtain
additional financing on terms acceptable to the combined companies. If
Management is successful in obtaining additional funding, these funds will
be used primarily to provide working capital needed for repayment of
outstanding notes payable,software development, sales and marketing expense
and to finance research,development and advancement of intellectual property
concerns. A description of the JOVUS business is provided above.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company remains in the development stage and, since inception, has
experienced no significant change in liquidity or capital resources or
stockholder's equity.  The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2000,
reflects a current asset value of $0.00, and a total asset value of $0.00
in the form of cash and capitalized organizational costs.

<PAGE> 17

The Company will carry out its plan of business as discussed above.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

During the period from November 24, 1999 (inception) through June 30,
2000, the Company has engaged in no significant operations other than
organizational activities, acquisition of capital and preparation for
reporting as a registrant under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, as amended. No revenues were received by the Company during this
period.

Need for Additional Financing

The Company believes that its existing capital will be sufficient to
meet the Company's cash needs, including the costs of compliance with
the continuing reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, as amended, for a period of approximately one year.

INCOME TAXES

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with Statement of
Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes"
("SFAS 109") issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB"),
under which deferred tax assets and liabilities are provided on differences
between the carrying amounts for financial reporting and the tax basis of
assets and liabilities for income tax purposes using the enacted tax rates.
Under SFAS 109, deferred tax assets may be recognized for temporary
differences that will result in deductible amounts in future periods. A
valuation allowance is recognized, if on the weight of available evidence,
it is more likely than not that some portion or the entire deferred tax
asset will not be realized.

NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 121, "Accounting for the
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed of"
("SFAS 121") issued by the FASB, is effective for financial statements for
fiscal years beginning after December 15, 1995.The standard establishes new
guidelines regarding when impairment losses on long-lived assets, which
include plant and equipment, certain identifiable intangible assets, and
goodwill, should be recognized and how impairment losses should be measured.
The Company does not expect adoption to have a material effect on its
financial position or results of operations.  Statement of Financial

<PAGE> 18

Accounting Standards No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation"
("SFAS 123") issued by the FASB, is effective for specific transactions
entered into after December 15, 1995. The disclosure requirements of SFAS
123 are effective for financial statements for fiscal years beginning no
later than December 15, 1995. The new standard established a fair value
method of accounting for stock-based compensation plans and for
transactions in which an entity acquires goods or services from
non-employees in exchange for equity instruments. The Company does not expect
adoption to have a material effect on its financial position or results of
operations.

FEDERAL INCOME TAX ASPECTS OF INVESTMENT IN THE COMPANY

The discussion contained herein has been prepared by the Company and is based
on existing law as contained in the Code, amended United States Treasury
Regulations ("Treasury Regulations"), administrative rulings and court
decisions as of the date of this Registration Statement. No assurance can be
given that future legislative enactments, administrative rulings or court
decisions will not modify the legal basis for statements contained in this
discussion. Any such development may be applied retroactively to transactions
completed prior to the date thereof, and could contain provisions having an
adverse affect upon the Company and the holders of the Common Stock. In
addition, several of the issues dealt with in this summary are the subjects of
proposed and temporary Treasury Regulations. No assurance can be given that
these regulations will be finally adopted in their present form.

Y2K COMPLIANCE

determined that all its computer driven systems and software in use are
able to recognize, calculate, and display data-related dates correctly
after the year 1999.  ALPHA can not determine the impact the Year 2000 will
have on its key suppliers.  However, if ALPHA's key suppliers do not convert
their systems to become Year 2000 compliant, ALPHA may be adversely impacted.

determined that all its computer driven systems and software in use are
able to recognize, calculate, and display data-related dates correctly
after the year 1999.  JOVUS can not determine the impact the Year 2000 will
have on its key suppliers.  However, if JOVUS's key suppliers do not convert
their systems to become Year 2000 compliant, JOVUS may be adversely impacted.

operations or the results of the Company's future activities will not differ
