Crown Financial Group, Inc. (‘Registrant’) has reorganized into a holding company structure (the ‘Reorganization’) in accordance with Section 10-3(6) of the New Jersey Business Corporation Act.

The holding company organizational structure was effected after the close of business on January 11, 2005 pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of January 11, 2005 (the ‘Merger Agreement’), by and among the Registrant, Crown Financial Holdings, Inc., a New Jersey corporation (‘Crown Holdings’), and CFGI Merger Sub, Inc., a New Jersey corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Holdings (‘Merger Sub’). The Merger Agreement provided for the merger (the ‘Merger’) of Merger Sub with and into the Registrant, with the Registrant as the surviving corporation. Pursuant to Section 10-3(6) of the New Jersey Business Corporation Act shareholder approval was not required for the Merger. As a result of the Merger, the Registrant is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Holdings.
