Form 8-K for JAG MEDIA HOLDINGS INC

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

31-Jan-2007

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 27, 2005, JAG Media Holdings, Inc., a Nevada corporation ("JAG Media") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Cryptometrics, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Cryptometrics"), Cryptometrics Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of JAG Media ("Cryptometrics Acquisition"), Robert Barra and Michael Vitale.
JAG Media entered into an agreement to amend the Merger Agreement dated as of January 24, 2007 (the "Amendment") with Cryptometrics, Cryptometrics Acquisition, Karlen & Stolzar, LLP, Robert Barra, Michael Vitale, Thomas J. Mazzarisi and Stephen J. Schoepfer. Thomas J. Mazzarisi is the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer and General Counsel of JAG Media. Stephen J. Schoepfer is President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary of JAG Media.
The Amendment principally amends the Merger Agreement to (i) eliminate the requirement that JAG Media's common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the "Common Stock") be authorized for listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market as a condition to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the "Closing"), (ii) replace a formula for determination of the consideration to be received by Cryptometrics stockholders in connection with the merger by fixing such consideration at 394,700,016 shares of JAG Media's Common Stock, an increase over the prior amount determined under the formula
(iii) provide that Cryptometrics will advance $275,000 on behalf of JAG Media to pay certain legal, accounting and printing expenses in connection with the Closing and (iv) provide that the permitted amount of indebtedness of JAG Media be increased from $2,750,000 to $4,350,000. The Amendment provides that subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, as amended, the Closing shall take place on February 28, 2007, or such other date as the parties may agree upon. The Amendment further provides that in the event that the Closing does not occur by March 15, 2007, the Merger Agreement shall automatically terminate, unless the parties agree to extend it in writing. Until JAG Media and Cryptometrics agree otherwise, the Merger Agreement, notwithstanding approval by the Cryptometrics stockholders, may be cancelled with or without any reason at any time by either JAG Media or Cryptometrics with no liability, except that the Amendment provides that if JAG Media cancels the Merger Agreement prior to the automatic termination date, it will issue 500,000 shares of its Common Stock to Cryptometrics. There can be no assurance that the various conditions in the Merger Agreement, as amended, will be met or that it will not be terminated in accordance with its terms.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant JAG Media entered into a letter agreement dated as of January 24, 2007 (the "Letter Agreement") with Cornell Capital Partners, LP ("Cornell Capital"), Cryptometrics, Robert Barra and Michael Vitale pursuant to which the parties principally agreed that upon the effective date (the "Effective Date") of the merger among JAG Media, Cryptometrics Acquisition and Cryptometrics as set forth in the Merger Agreement (i) Cryptometrics will assume all of the rights and duties of the "Obligor" under the terms of those certain debentures currently aggregating $3,520,000 (the "Debentures") and the "Company" under the terms of those certain warrants to purchase 12,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the "Warrants") issued by JAG Media to Cornell Capital in connection with that certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of May 4, 2006 by and between JAG Media and Cornell Capital, (ii) the terms of the conversion pricing formula of the Debentures will be adjusted to equal 95% of the lowest daily Volume Weighted Average Price of JAG Media's Common Stock as quoted by Bloomberg, LP during the 30 trading days immediately preceding the date Cornell Capital delivers notice to Cryptometrics that it wishes to convert

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

all or a portion of a Debenture or the Debentures and (iii) the exercise price of the Warrants will equal 88% of the average of the Volume Weighted Average Price of JAG Media's Common Stock as quoted by Bloomberg, LP during the 30 days immediately prior to the first date upon which the Warrant may be exercised.
Under the terms of the Letter Agreement, Cornell Capital has agreed not to convert any of the Debentures or exercise any of the Warrants prior to the Closing or termination of the Merger Agreement. The Letter Agreement automatically terminates on March 15, 2007 unless the Closing of the Merger Agreement, as amended, occurs by that date or the parties agree to extend the term of the Letter Agreement.
The foregoing descriptions of the Amendment and the Letter Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full texts of the Amendment and the Letter Agreement filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 hereto, which are incorporated herein by reference. Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits
(d) Exhibits

Securities fraud, theft, murder-for-hire… and it’s not March
By Jared Allen, jallen@nashvillecitypaper.com
January 22, 2007

A little-noticed but serious case of theft, fraud and murder-for-hire goes to trial today, as Davidson County prosecutors will get their opening shot at a man they say is responsible for bilking Middle Tennesseans out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, then attempting to kill the prosecutors brought in to help try him.

Robert D. Mendenhall, 41, of Ill., is being tried this week in Nashville on two counts of theft and three counts of securities fraud. Mendenhall was indicted on those counts in August of 2005.

According to the indictment, in 2003 Mendenhall told a Nashville woman that the stock of Rapid Technologies Group, Inc., would be the subject of a public offering – and to invest heavily in it – when he knew that no such stock was going public. The indictment also says that Mendenhall “convinced” the same woman to deposit $300,000 in a shell corporation he created.

All this without a valid brokerage license, the indictment says.

Mendenhall is also awaiting trial on a multi-count indictment alleging securities fraud in Rutherford County, as well as in Vanderburgh County, Ind., where he faces a total of 22 counts of selling approximately $1.7 million of unregistered and fraudulent securities and acting as an unregistered investment advisory.

But Mendenhall’s case took a turn for the worse when in February of last year a Davidson County grand jury indicted him on new charges of trying to have his securities prosecutors murdered.

That indictment, on two counts of solicitation to commit murder, alleged that while Mendenhall was in jail in Nashville on his securities fraud and theft charges, he tried to hire someone to kill the two female attorneys serving as special prosecutors – Mary Griffin and Barbara Doak, attorneys with the Securities Division of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance.

When prosecutors were tipped off that Mendenhall was searching for a hit man, they teamed up with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), who sent into the jail an agent to pose as someone who would kill the women as Mendenhall directed.

That sting operation led to Mendenhall’s solicitation to commit first-degree murder indictment.

“Obviously, any time you have allegations as serious as this, it’s something you act on immediately,” Davidson County District Attorney Torry Johnson said in a statement released when the latest indictment was unsealed.

Mendenhall has pled not guilty to all of his Tennessee charges. He has remained in the Davidson County jail on a $2.15 million bond.

He has been granted a separate trial for his murder-for-hire charges, which is scheduled to begin next month.

Robert D. Mildenhall of Bluford effective December 8, 2005.

Division of Insurance Disciplinary Actions
December 2005

idfpr.com

Mr. Mildenhall had been licensed since November 23, 1999. Mr. Mildenhall is also known as Wade B. Palmer and Robert D. Mendenhall and has done business as Horse Creek Insurance Group.

Mr. Mildenhall was licensed to sell life, accident and health insurance. Mr. Mildenhall’s license was revoked by the Department’s Order of Revocation dated November 8, 2005. The Order of Revocation was issued as a result of an investigation revealing Mr. Mildenhall was permanently barred from offering or selling securities in the state of Illinois and fined $30,000.00 by the Secretary of State Securities Division. The investigation further revealed that Mr. Mildenhall used his position as an insurance producer to convince Illinois consumers to invest monies in fraudulent investments and he failed to facilitate and aid in the investigation by failing to provide books and records to the Division of Insurance.

An Overstock Critic Silenced

Sam Antar, a reformed felon who was mastermind of the Crazy Eddie stock scam, has been performing a real public service lately. He's donated his time to shareholders of Overstock.com by posing pointed questions at Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne at the Investors Village messgae board, which Byrne regularly uses to smear critics and justify his actions.

It's been a valuable service, not just for investors but for securities regulators, who I happen to know are following the cat-and-mouse game between Antar and Byrne very closely. Overstock, after all, is a very public transgressor of corporate norms -- with much of that being played out on message boards upon which Byrne obsessively posts.

As I noted in a post that I updated yesterday, some of Byrne's admissions, in his comments, have been incredibly damaging.

That valuable dialogue has been squelched, however, by the crackerjack management team of Investor Village, which has knuckled under to pressure from Overstock loyalists by squelching Antar. IV has limited his ability to post on IV, while giving Byrne, Bagley and their sockpuppets free reign to spread their poison.

That's hardly a surprise, since it has happened before, with Overstock critics gagged on flimsy pretexts.

By running an ostensibly neutral message board that restricts posts by company critics, IV has turned its boards into stock-hyping forums. That creates a nice set of legal entanglements down the road for IV -- or at least, I certainly hope it does.

But really what matters is motivation. I do not care if you use more than one name to post when you get down to it. What bugs me to hell and back is that some people do it not of principal but for money. That counts for the guys who lie to boost a stock and who lie to cut it. I hate them both. Did I read right where Floyd said he never got paid? If thats the case Floyd you need to ask for the blog to make that correction or sue or whatever because thats a serious accusation.

no one is saying there isn't any scamming on the short side Rufie, but it semms that's all you bitch about just like the fantasy nssers that think it ruins "great companies" like patchard and similar. when asked to prove it just once they come up with total chit like jag or escl or gloabalinks and get proven wrong over and over. You are in the same boat as them, proven wrong even though you're screaming "I'm right!" That's why everyone slaps you around except the penny idiots and the nssers, you don't know jack and your mouth runs and runs regardless. Did Enron fall because of nakid shortz?

You post over and over that "you scam is ok." You are upset at headlines that hurt your ability to scam freebies. You are afraid to trade in fair markets Tell us about your connections with MM's and hedgies so we can truly understand your motivation.

You mis-state my posts. I've stated that penny companies very often jump on the manipulative shorting bandwagon. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean there is no scamming on the short side. Just read the headlines, the Refco's, Sedonna, the Jeff Thorpe's, etc., etc. What is it you fear? Open the markets, fully investigate the activities of hedgies and MM's, eliminate the ability to manipulate retail investors. That's what I advocate.

Here is what I posted to you before and it's as true now as it was then.

Viewer (your previous aliass here), I believe I have finally exposed the difference in the way you and I think.

Here is your line.

The stock market is mostly about taking money from retail and always will be, regardless if it's a "scam" or not.

My preferred quote would be a paraphrase of the famous quote from Geoge Bernard Shaw.

"Some people <you> see scams as they are and ask 'why not let US scam instead?' I dream of things that never were, and ask 'why not?'
