Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On September 1, 2010, a majority of the shareholders of Empyrean Holdings, Inc. approved a change in the name of the Company.  An amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed October 19, 2010, changing the Company’s name to “American Asset Development, Inc.” effective October 21, 2010. The Company has applied for a new trading symbol.  

Section 1- Registrant’s Business and Operations

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On October 21, 2010, the Company entered into an Investment Agreement (the “Investment Agreement”) with Dutchess Opportunity Fund, II, LP, a Delaware Limited Partnership (the “Investor”).  Pursuant to the Investment Agreement, the Investor committed to purchase, subject to certain restrictions and conditions, up to $10,000,000 of the Company’s common stock, over a period of 36 months from the first trading day following the effectiveness of the registration statement registering the resale shares purchased by the Investor pursuant to the Investment Agreement (the “Equity Line”).  

The Company may draw on the facility from time to time, as and when it determines appropriate in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Investment Agreement.  The maximum amount that the Company is entitled to put to the Investor in any one draw down notice is the greater of (i) 200% of the average daily volume of the Company’s common stock for the three (3) trading days prior to the date of delivery of the applicable draw down notice, multiplied by the average of the closing prices for such trading days or (ii) $250,000. The purchase price shall be set at ninety-three percent (93%) of the lowest daily volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Company’s common stock during the five (5) consecutive trading day period beginning on the date of delivery of the applicable draw down notice.  The Company has the right to withdraw all or any portion of any put, except that portion of the put that has already been sold to a third party, including any portion of a put that is below the minimum acceptable price set forth on the put notice, before the closing.  There are put restrictions applied on days between the draw down notice date and the closing date with respect to that particular put.  During such time, the Company shall not be entitled to deliver another draw down notice.  In addition, the Investor will not be obligated to purchase shares if the Investor’s total number of shares beneficially held at that time would exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of the Company’s common stock as determined in accordance with Rule 13d-1(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  In addition, the Company is not permitted to draw on the facility unless there is an effective registration statement (as further explained below) to cover the resale of the shares.


The Investment Agreement further provides that the Company and the Investor are each entitled to customary indemnification from the other for, among other things, any losses or liabilities they may suffer as a result of any breach by the other party of any provisions of the Investment Agreement or Registration Rights Agreement (as defined below), or as a result of any lawsuit brought by a third-party arising out of or resulting from the other party’s execution, delivery, performance or enforcement of the Investment Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement.


The Investment Agreement also contains customary representations and warranties of each of the parties.  The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties were made for purposes of the

Investment Agreement and are subject to qualifications and limitations agreed to by the parties in connection with negotiating the terms of the Investment Agreement.  In addition, certain representations and warranties were made as of a specific date, may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality different from what a shareholder or investor might view as material, or may have been used for purposes of allocating risk between the respective parties rather than establishing matters as facts.  Investors should read the Investment Agreement together with the other information concerning the Company that the Company publicly files in reports and statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).


Pursuant to the terms of a Registration Rights Agreement dated October 21, 2010 between the Company and the Investor (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), the Company is obligated to file one or more registrations statements with the SEC to register the resale by Investor of the shares of common stock issued or issuable under the Investment Agreement.   The Company is obligated to use all commercially reasonable efforts to have the registration statement declared effective by the SEC within 90 days after the registration statement is filed.


The foregoing description of each of the Investment Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Investment Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement, respectively, which are filed as Exhibit 10.1 and 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
