International Star, Inc (OTC: ILST) has been one of the hotly anticipated stocks in line for a merger. After filing for a Change of Control with the OTC Markets, ILST stock surged 87% with many investors speculating an official announcement could be right around the corner. With anticipation building up for PR, ILST could be one of the hot penny stocks to watch this week.
ILST Stock News
In October, the state of Nevada granted Alpharidge Capital, LLC, custody of the company due to Igwealor’s reputation for successful turnarounds of inactive companies. Alpharidge’s custodianship was terminated earlier this month – a sign that merger news may be released very soon. This appears to be the case as ILST discloses that its “first merger has been finalized and waiting for rollout”. Given the sectors ILST is focused on, some investors are speculating that the merger could help ILST uplist to OTCQX.
This suspicion was fueled by Igwealor’s hints at the OTCQX when discussing ILST. Given that the the OTCQX is the top tier of the OTC and companies listed there “must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance,” among other requirements, ILST’s merger candidate could be very impressive.
This is because companies listed on the OTCQX include “a large number of blue-chip stocks from Europe, Canada, Brazil, and Russia.” If the merger candidate is a large foreign stock looking to list in the US through the OTCQX, then ILST shareholders could be the recipients of a major gift.
It appears that ILST will start the year with a bang as the company is already evaluating various acquisition candidates in the FinTech, Defi, Blockchain, Metaverse, NFT, Crypto and gaming sectors. With the vision of building “a robust top-level finance, technology and blockchain enterprise”, ILST could be one of the best cheap stocks to invest in.
To facilitate these plans, ILST has brought Caren D Currier on as a company insider. Given her expertise in completing merger processes, her presence inside the company is a bullish sign for many investors.
ILST is also in the process of filing for a share reduction and has already managed to reduce ILST’s AS from 3 billion to around 2.01 billion. Although still not reflected on its OTC Markets profile, once the company’s Transfer Agent finalizes the paperwork the share structure is expected to be updated.
On top of this, ILST has a clause prohibiting dilution or reverse splits for the next two years thanks to Igwealor’s custodianship. With this in mind, ILST could be one of the hot penny stocks to start 2022 with.

After speculations that a merger was coming soon due to the termination of Alpharidge’s custodianship, ILST was left with Currier as its majority shareholder – holding 60% of voting rights according to its latest annual report.

While Currier is still assisting in the transition, this announcement set off a flurry of speculations regarding the merger candidate. Many investors sold on the news causing a shocking sell off for ILST stock.
However, since then many investors have bought the dip bullish on the merger candidate. This confidence could be rewarded since according to the recently filed Change of Control, ILST Holdco LLC has acquired 100% of the company’s special 2021 Series A Preferred Shares in exchange for $305 thousand.
Many OTC investors consider this to be a premium price for a shell company with no assets and now many are speculating that the merging company could have significant revenues and operations. If this proves to be the case, it could trigger a huge run for ILST stock.
Now, many investors are eagerly awaiting a press release from the company’s new management. So far it has launched a new website and a new Twitter account to reflect the transition. Based on these developments, investors are bullish an official announcement could be released very soon. Considering the company’s run by as much as 87% after the Change of Control filing, ILST could be one of the hot penny stocks this week.
