NEWS UPDATE FOR SHAREHOLDERS

Dear Shareholders,

I know it has been several months since I posted. Let me bring things up to date.

To begin, I have waited patiently for all unreconciled shareholders to contact me regarding shares. To be fair I wanted to wait as long as possible for any replies. I think any of you who have shares would have wanted to be treated with this same fairness. I am convinced now that all shareholders have responded to my requests. To any shareholders that maybe concerned about share certificates they may not have received you can expect them shortly.

Now on to other business. I have been in negotiations to acquire new technologies that address neurological disorders such as Tourette’s Syndrome. The negotiating process has been in process since September of 2011. It is time consuming and frustrating. I am glad to report that in the last few weeks the negotiating log jam appears to have broken free. I expect to be able to report completion of negotiations shortly.

I am also preparing filings for  patents on a new class of alternative diagnostics. I have worked on the device several years ago and developed prototypes. However, the new application for the device will allow for a personal computer interface.

Obviously, I have to be sensitive to all your positions in the company. I will not make any announcements prior to securing additional funding for development, research, and working capital. Of course this includes a public offering and conversion of your shares.

Many of you have expressed frustration. I understand. I have been equally frustrated at the pace of things. I am pressing forward on all fronts.

Please accept my best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year.

John Bancroft

Shareholder Information Posted by John R. Bancroft, Chairman and CEO

My recovery is progressing well but slow and sure.

I would like to repeat my feelings and concerns for all the original investors and purchasers of convertible preferred shares in ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc.

Those sale of those shares was intended to raise capital for Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc.

There were only convertible preferred shares offered for sale. There were no options or warrants attached to or made part of the the ALTTPRO Holdings shares. The shares in ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc. were to be converted to shares of common stock in Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. and Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. was to use proceeds to register Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. common shares. Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. would become “free trading” and build a market for the common shares via a reverse merger into a public shell or via an IPO.

Many of the original investors have contacted me regarding the ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc stock and the various entities from who they purchased the stock and the entities that have recently contacted them regarding conversion, registration, take over, sale of their original shares, etc.. I do not have knowledge of any of the entities and none have contacted me about registering or trading of the stock. They can’t issues shares as I have the stock certificates in my possession and I will only provide the certificates directly to the shareholders listed in my stock certificate registry.

BEWARE OF THE SMOOTH TALKERS CONTACTING YOU. THEY WANT YOUR MONEY AND HAVE NO INTEREST IN ANYTHING BEYOND THAT INTENT. NO ONE HAS STOCK OPTIONS OR WARRANTS IN ALTTPRO HOLDINGS, INC. THERE IS NO CONVERSION VEHICLE ABLE EXCEPT THAT WHICH I CONTROL.  I HAVE SEEN COPIES OF STOCK CERTIFICATES SENT BY SHAREHOLDERS THAT ARE FORGED AND FRAUDELENT.

Trust me if these offers were truly legitimate those companies could and would contact me directly. No have contacted me in the respect at all.

I started to reconcile the stock before I got sick and am completing the process now. Yes, it has taken more time than any of us would have liked, but once completed your ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc. convertible preferred shares will be able to be converted to Class A common stock in  Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. and together will move forward.

Please be patient. This process should be completed in 90 – 120 days.

I will do everything possible to help each and every shareholder gain value through there equity participation in Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc.

I am always available to answer questions but I try to keep the ALTTPRO.com website up to date.

Best Regards,

John Bancroft
Chairman and CEO

Shareholder Information Posted by John R. Bancroft, Chairman and CEO

I have heard from many shareholders since my first “Shareholder Information” posting on the ALTTPRO website a few weeks ago.

Most of your correspondences are queries about brokers telling you that they have “buyers” for your stock, or any variation of sale or registration or conversion.

The companies these brokers profess to represent may be using many names that sound legitimate and some of those names include Atlantis Funding or Dragon Securities. They make many claims including holding your share certificates.

I assure you that they do not nor can they convert or register anything or offer warrants. I am in possession of 100% of all the ALLTPRO Holdings, Inc. stock certificates. I am the only person that can authorize and execute the option to convert your shares.

I need to do a final reconciliation of shares. That reconciliation is in process at this time.

You all have individual private access to me via email.

Once again I ask for your help. I need the following:

  1. If you know other shareholders please contact them and have them contact me directly.
  2. Please provide me with the exact number of shares you purchased.
  3. Please provide your contact information (Name, Address, City, Country, Telephone Number
  4. If possible the name of the company from which you purchased the shares

You have all been waiting too long for your share certificates. I request that all this information is transmitted to me not later that 17 July 2011.

I will do a final count and you will have your share certificates by 17 August 2011. I will also provide the process for converting your shares to shares of common stock in Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. with your shares.

There is much to do if we expect to get approval and registration as “free trading” from the SEC.

Thank you in advance for your patience. I know I can count on each and every shareholder to help me.

Shareholder Information

Posted by John R. Bancroft, Chairman and CEO

Thank you to all the ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc shareholders who have been following the new web pages and making inquiries about their shares.

I will try and be brief and informative, providing answers as best I can to the majority of your questions. Let me start by providing a status report and background on the original investments.

Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. (ALTTPRO) is the operating company. It was formed in late 2000 to provide marketing, advertising, and an operation base for products of the company. Some of these products included CigArrest, Seromel, and other natural and synthetic products targeting addictions, their causes, effects, and treatment. The most prominent addiction treatment product in development is for Methamphetamine and stimulant addiction.

In 2007, recognizing changes in the market for smoking cessation products and the proliferation of anti-smoking sentiment and restrictions SmokerZChoice was developed. SmokerZchoice (SZC) is a product that was to provide smokers who did not want to quit smoking or was not ready to quit smoking with an option for the first time. They were not being told that they “HAD TO QUIT SMOKING” but now had a choice, SmokerZchoice. The market studies supported the product concept. Simply studying USA smoking statistics it was determined that there were about 50,000,000 U.S. smokers. Only about 10% (5,000,000) of this group wanted to, or attempted to quit smoking annually. Only about 10% of those wanting to quit smoking were ready to try or were successful in actually quitting (500,000).

With about 45,000,000 potential customers facing restriction 1 – 3 times a day the market for an alternative choice, SmokerZchoice seemed very viable and available.

To clear the way for SZC, I out licensed CigArrest to a 3rd party Distribution Company and set out to raise capital for the launch of SZC.

ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc. was formed as a vehicle to sell preferred convertible shares. An agreement was entered into with a company, Tadley Trading to raise $2M – $5M (USD) in capital to be used to launch the new SZC brand. I held a block of preferred convertible stock aside for Tadley at a highly discounted rate and my agreement with them ran through December 31, 2010.

Tadley, I was told, has worked with capable overseas brokers/dealers in the past. From what I have gathered these relationships were with many of the firms that you dealt with like Atlantis Funding, Dragon Securities, and alike. I had no direct dealing with these brokers.

Tadley Trading also suggested that I hire an Investment Relations PR firm to manage the day-to-day affairs. Most of you have had some degree of contact with Jonathon Small, who was maintaining shareholder stock records books, mailing out stock certificates, and suppose to be acting on behalf of the investor interests in ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc. This apparently was not the case and Investor Relations International and Mr. Smalls were terminated. I had to wait until December 31, 2010 for the contract with Tadley Trading to expire.

The stock certificates were never recorded or issued and after quite some time, the help from many of you I was able to recover the record books and share certificates. I was attempting to reconcile the shares when I received my cancer diagnosis.

I have no idea as to the price at which Tadley sold shares to Atlantis Funding, et al. It is apparent that Atlantis, et al resold those preferred convertible shares in ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc at inflated rates. The funding raise for Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc amounted to less than $400,000 USD. That is far less than my contract with Tadley and far less than was needed to take the company public and provide a proper conversion option for all the ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc preferred convertible shareholders for free trading common stock in Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc. In addition, these funds were used to develop products, build inventory, promote SmokerZchoice and brand the product.

IT IS MY COMMITMENT TO HONOR ALL THE PREFERRED CONVERTIBLE SHARES IN ALTTPRO HOLDINGS, INC. AND CONVERT THEM TO SHARES OF COMMON STOCK IN ALTERNATIVE TOBACCO PRODUCTS, INC. HOWEVER, AT PRESENT SHARES OF NEITHER COMPANY ARE TRADABLE OR HAVE ANY MARKETABLE VALUE.

At present Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc is still marketing SmokerZchoice, but with a limited marketing budget sales are slow. The Company has had an interactive on line cognitive therapy in development (also slowed as the result of underfunding) that has application for smoking cessation, diet and weight loss, stress reduction, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), pain management and telemedicine. We have these programs available for delivery using smart phone and mobile technologies. I have been self funding for the past 9 months. I do not take a salary and all revenues are rolled back into operations.

I know this news may be difficult in these economic times. Personally, I am at a cross roads and trying to re-gain my bearings and correct the course. The future is good despite setbacks. Your shares in ALLTPRO Holdings, Inc are safe and completely under my control. Any contact otherwise from any company’s or brokers should be very carefully scrutinize. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is. Do not pay anything up front to any brokers who profess that that can buy or trade your shares. Unfortunately, these guys are just scammers.

We will have to work together to regain footing rebuild a market to your shares of preferred convertible stock in ALTTPRO Holdings, Inc and building a free trading market for them once converted to common shares of Alternative Tobacco Products, Inc.

I hope after reviewing this long letter to you all that you will want to join me in the process. The worldwide market is very big and could be very productive and profitable.

Please send me your comments and thoughts through our contact form or through email. I will provide some additional thoughts and ideas on how this can be accomplished in return.

Respectfully,

John Bancroft

From:  ALTTPRO Founder and CEO John Bancroft

I want to wish all our shareholders well and especially those investors who purchased shares in ALTTPRO Holdings. My cancer treatment and recovery has taken me quite some time to get through and back on my feet. The fact that it was complicated by a severe e-coli bacterial infection prolonged my recovery. I appreciate all the well wishes and want to thank all the shareholders for their patience and perseverance.

Many of you (ALTTPRO Holdings) shareholders have made inquiries as to your shares and certificates and alike. Before I got ill I was reviewing shares purchased against the limited records of ownership that came from the primary investment house that managed the initial offering. Many of you had purchased your shares that re-sold by various 3rd party brokers.

It appears at this time after trying to reconcile share ownership that the records furnished me were inadequate. I have promised that each shareholder in ALTTPRO Holdings who previously furnished their shareholder information (Number of shares, contact information and mailing addresses) that I would hold or distribute those shares to them at their request.

I have further promised that I would furnish a plan in which there would be a method to convert the shares of ALLTPRO Holdings, Inc into common shares of ALTTPRO, Inc. the operating company.

For many of you I know you have heard this before and are frustrated. I understand and it is my intention to re-new my efforts to get ALTTPRO, Inc up to speed and publically traded.

Please take heart in knowing that I am the sole owner of ALTTPRO, Inc. I am Founder and Chairman and no one speaks for me in this matter. Any of you that have been contacted by other purporting to represent ALLTPRO, INC. or me have no involvement in the Company.

I ask you once again to contact me through our contact form or through email so that I can re-count the outstanding unissued shares and re-build the data base and mailing list of all of you.
