They are both directors. The third director is Adam Parsons, 23. Mr. Parsons joined Mr. DiCapo's Toronto merchant bank as an investment banking analyst last year, after graduating with a bachelor of engineering from the Memorial University of Newfoundland. This is his first POCML shell experience. The three prior versions of the POCML series were all successes. Mr. DiCapo and Mr. D'Onofrio listed POCML 1 Inc. at 20 cents in 2011.
