Notice of Intent to Revoke Registration as Investment Adviser,
Order to Cease and Desist and Notice of Intent to Fine Issued

On February 27, 2001, the Banking Commissioner issued a Notice of Intent to Revoke the investment adviser registration of Dana J. Andrusik of Glastonbury, Connecticut. The Notice of Intent to Revoke was coupled with an Order to Cease and Desist and Notice of Intent to Fine against the respondent. The department's action was based on claims that from at least February 1999 forward, the respondent violated Section 36b-16 of the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act by selling unregistered non-exempt notes issued by World Vision Entertainment, Inc. and Sebastian International Entertainment, Inc. The department also alleged that the respondent acted as an unregistered agent of issuer in effecting the note transactions.

The respondent was afforded an opportunity to request a hearing on the Notice of Intent to Revoke Registration as Investment Adviser and the Order to Cease and Desist. A hearing on the Notice of Intent to Fine has been scheduled for April 24, 2001.
