Worldwide Financial says that as part of the deal, ISD shareholders will transfer all outstanding shares of the company to Worldwide Financial. In exchange for their shares, Worldwide Financial says ISD's shareholders shall receive control of Worldwide Financial and, consequently, the management and board of directors of ISD will replace Worldwide Financial's current management.
According to Larry Schreoder, spokesman for Worldwide Financial, the two companies are in advanced stages of negotiations to sign a definitive agreement and it is anticipated that a definitive agreement will be signed and executed within a few days.

"We came a long way and are confident that this merger will allow us to keep increasing our profitability, as well as providing shareholder value to our investors."
