            We plan on providing an update to certain potential financing
sources regarding the status of our ongoing acquisition program. As we reported
in a current report on Form 8-K filed on November 15, 2004, we, together with
CRDE Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crdentia Corp., and the shareholders of
Healthcare Innovations Private Services, Inc. ("HCIPSI"), entered into an
Agreement and Plan of Reorganization pursuant to which HCI Holding Corporation,
the parent company of HCIPSI, will be merged with and into CRDE Corp., and CRDE
Corp. will survive the merger as a subsidiary of Crdentia Corp. As reported, the
closing of the potential transaction is subject to our raising $9,000,000 in
cash proceeds to finance the transaction and other customary closing conditions,
including the completion of our due diligence review of HCIPSI. As of the date
of this current report, we are continuing to work to raise the $9,000,000 in
cash proceeds necessary to finance the acquisition, and we and our potential
financing source are working to complete our due diligence review. The
resolution of these contingencies could involve the modification of the
structure or terms of the HCIPSI transaction.

            In addition to working to close the HCIPSI transaction, consistent
with our stated business model of acquiring complementary companies and
businesses, we are also currently negotiating with other potential acquisition
targets which have combined annual revenues of approximately $29,000,000 and
operating income of approximately $3,400,000. Although we believe each of these
transactions to be viable, we have not yet entered into any definitive
agreements or letters of intent with the owners of these targeted acquisitions,
and the closing of any such transactions would be subject to customary closing
conditions, including our having sufficient financing for the transactions and
the results of our due diligence review.

            The timing of the closing of any potential acquisition is dependent
upon our ability to obtain financing and our board of director's ongoing
evaluation of the best interests of our stockholders. Nevertheless, as we
continue to work to close the HCIPSI transaction and evaluate these other
opportunities, our management remains comfortable with the revenue and EBITDA
projections for fiscal year 2005 set forth in Exhibit 99.3 to the current report
on Form 8-K filed on November 15, 2004.

            The information contained in this Item 7.01 is furnished to, but not
filed with, the Securities and Exchange Commission and shall not be incorporated
by reference to any of our filings, whether made before or after the date
hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing, unless
expressly incorporated by specific reference to such filing. The filing of this
current report is not an admission as to the materiality of any information in
this Item 7.01.

            Statements contained in this current report or incorporated herein
that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve risks
and uncertainties. Among the important factors which could cause actual results
to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but
are not limited to, those discussed in "Risk Factors" in our reports on Form
10-KSB and Form 10-QSB and other filings with the Securities and Exchange
Commission. Such risk factors include, but are not limited to, a limited
operating history with no earnings; reliance on our management team, members of
which have other business interests; the ability to successfully implement our
business plan; the ability to continue as a going concern; the ability to fund
our business and acquisition strategy; the growth of the temporary healthcare
professional staffing business; difficulty in managing operations of acquired
businesses; uncertainty in government regulation of the healthcare industry; and
the limited public market for our common stock. The actual results that we
achieve may differ materially from any forward-looking statements due to such
risks and uncertainties. We undertake no obligation to revise or update publicly
any forward-looking statements for any reason.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
