Warwick, NY, Dec. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ozop Energy Solutions, Inc. (OZSC or the “Company”) issues the following update on its wholly owned subsidiary, Ozop Energy Systems, Inc. (“OZOP”). On November 3, 2022, OZOP terminated for cause the employment of Christopher Serna (”Serna”), Christian Rodriguez (“Rodriguez”), Alana Dixon (“Dixon), Dario Rodriguez (“D. Rodriguez”) and Rudy Lopez (“Lopez”). Prior to these terminations, Danita (Cira) Serna (“Cira”) resigned from OZOP. On August 11, 2022, and unknown to OZOP until discovered in November 2022, a document was filed with the California Secretary of State whereby Rodriguez was listed as the sole officer of Your Home Solution Corp (“YHS”) and Rodriguez and Serna were listed as the Directors of YHS. Serna and Rodriguez, through YHS, were purchasing products from OZOP and resold the products to OZOP customers at a markup. When OZOP became aware of the above, immediate terminations were issued to all of the OZOP employees.
Serna, Rodriguez, Dixon, D. Rodriguez, Cira and YHS are collectively referred to as the “Defendants”. Cease-and-desist letters were sent to all of the Defendants.
After further investigation, analysis and discussions with customers, OZOP filed a Complaint in the SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR THE COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO NORTH COUNTY (the “Complaint”) on November 14, 2022. The Complaint alleges that Serna and Rodriguez would place an order from YHS for purchase of product from OZOP with funds the exact source of which is presently unknown. OZOP alleges that next YHS would sell that product to OZOP’s customers at a price marked up from the price for which YHS purchased from OZOP – to the benefit of Defendants and to the detriment of their employer, OZOP. The Complaint further alleges that Serna and Rodriguez falsely represented that the price YHS was obtaining from other suppliers and therefore was willing to pay for OZOP product decreased, which allowed them to use YHS to then sell additional product to OZOP’s customers at increasingly larger margins, thus further wrongfully enriching themselves to the detriment of their employer, OZOP. The lawsuit also alleges that Serna and Dixon were also making false statements to Ozop’s customers regarding the financial condition of Ozop and the lack of module inventory.
OZOP intends to prosecute the Complaint against all of the Defendants to the fullest extent of the law and to cooperate with all regulatory agencies that may become involved. Despite the (alleged) actions of the Defendants, OZOP was able to secure product sales for Q4 as originally forecasted and has also been able to secure orders for 2023. We believe Ozop Energy Systems is now in as a good of a position as it has ever been to create long-term positive cashflow as a result of these ongoing business activities.
