MIKP Q2 FINANCIALS

Shareholders– It is with great pleasure that we announced today our DTC eligibility reinstatement.  I was hoping to deliver a second boon in   the form of our posted Q2 financials by midnight tonight and, though the financials are completed and available for posting, we were not able to login to OTCIQ.  That said, I was able to speak to a representative who happened to be there after hours and I am assured our login will be restored in the am at which point we will immediately post the report.

I apologize for not having these in prior to midnight tonight, but I am assured we will seamlessly retain our Current Information Tier status through the night until posting and I will ensure our Q3 will be done in a more timely manner.  For what its worth, we have poured hours of diligent submission and discovery to DTCC to effect the ‘chill’ removal as top priority.  Now that we have achieved eligibility once again, we can proceed less one challenge.  Thank you again for all your support and I hope everyone has a great night.

While you’re waiting, maybe curl up to a good synopsis of www.theskintrademovie.com— Ryan Colucci and I have finalized our outline for the screenplay and go to draft this week.  We will be packaging the film for AFM along with our other properties toward precipitous growth over the next year and many thereafter.

Sincerely,

Mark B. Newbauer

Question for Shareholders

What a great couple of weeks it has been for Mike The Pike Productions and its shareholders!  Much thanks goes to strategic partners, Ted Chalmers, Ryan Colucci, Peter Matousek and last, but definitely not least, Chris Koprivec of www.stocktraderstalk.com – Chris’ commitment to coach Operations has resulted in an irrefutable positive impact for the company and its stock (OTC: MIKP) toward continual achievements of benchmarks in a step-by-step agenda for long-term growth.  

That said, we’ve come to a point where a good number of new investors are looking at the company and, after complimenting us on our progress to date, they all ask, one way or another:  “WTF is ‘Mike the Pike’?'”  Well, the answer to that is simple.  Or so I thought.   It’s a fish.  Actually, it’s a production company named after a fish. 

Fact is, a few prominent market advisors have recommended that, with all we have going for us, naming a company after a fish is all fine and good, but introducing a public company named after a fish, all the while explaining what it does as a company, may not be the best way to position it; as opposed to naming the company for exactly what it is and what it does.  It’s suggested that perhaps something more like MTP Media Holdings Corp. would be more appropriate.  

In giving this thought– I understand.  I also feel it could enable us to structure the company in accordance to what we’ve become- in which the Media Holdings company owns and holds Mike the Pike Productions, Saint James Films LLC and any other entity(ies) or property(ies) we might acquire, while keeping their models separate. 

That said, I think its a great idea, but before we move ahead, would love to get some investor feedback.  

Should Mike The Pike Productions (OTC: MIKP) change its name to better reflect its business model?

Please email your constructive thoughts or a simple yes or no to:  info@mtpprods.com with ‘NAME CHANGE’ in the subject line.
