It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of Terax Energy, Inc. (“Terax,” trading symbol TEXG.OB), because of questions regarding the accuracy of assertions by Terax and by others, in reports filed with the Commission and in press releases to investors concerning, among other things: (1) The status of Terax's oil and gas operations, (2) Terax's purported financing agreements, (3) Terax's supposed acquisition of a controlling interest in a foreign oil and gas firm, (4) the existence, terms and status of a purported share exchange agreement between Terax and Westar Oil, Inc., and (5) the identity of the persons in control of the operations and management of Terax.
