SECURITIES AND BUSINESS INVESTMENTS DIVISION ACTIVITY
Notice of Intent to Issue Stop Order Issued

On November 17, 2004, the Commissioner issued a Notice of Intent to Issue Stop Order denying effectiveness to the pending securities registration of BMX Entertainment Corporation. The respondent, located at 67 Smith Street, P.O. Box 10857, Stamford, Connecticut, purportedly is in the music recording and distribution business. The Notice of Intent to Issue Stop Order alleged that, notwithstanding more than one deficiency letter issued by agency staff, the registration statement remained materially incomplete in that, among other things, the issuer's disclosure document did not satisfy the requirements in the SCOR Issuer's Manual. The respondent was afforded an opportunity to request a hearing on the Notice of Intent to Issue Stop Order.
