BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
Aethlon Capital, LLC has developed a Business Continuity Plan describing how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. With that in mind, we are providing you a condensed summary of our business continuity plan on our web site. The full summary is provided to all clients and is available upon request.
We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the Downtown Minneapolis area, Minneapolis, or the whole Minneapolis/St. Paul region. Depending on the type of disruption, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business as soon as possible.
In either situation, we plan to continue in business and notify you through our web site www.aethlon.com or our main telephone number: (612) 338-0934. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assist you in contacting parties you have conducted business with (issuers and investors).
