On August 28, 2012, the Estate of Mr. Bryan Michael, Mr. Min-su Kang, and Capital
Communications Consultants, Inc. (collectively, the Applicants) filed an application pursuant to section
63.03 of the Commission’s rules1 requesting approval for the transfer of control of Capital
Communications Consultants, Inc. to Mr. Min-su Kang.2
Mr. Michael directly owned 100% of, and exercised control over, Capital Communications
Consultants. Prior to his death, Mr. Michael signed an agreement with Mr. Min-su Kang to transfer all of
the stock from either himself or his estate, as applicable, to Mr. Min-su Kang upon receipt of all necessary
approvals from regulatory authorities. Upon Mr. Michael’s passing, all stock in the Capital
Communications Consultants transferred to the Estate of Bryan Michael. Capital Communications
Consultants, Inc., a Georgia corporation, provides competitive local exchange services and interexchange
services in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, and South Carolina. It also holds competitive local
exchange carrier and interexchange authority in North Carolina but does not yet provide services in that
state. Mr. Kang, a U.S. citizen, is an investor whose primary business is debt resolution. Applicants state
that Mr. Kang does not have any affiliates that provide telecommunications services.
Applicants state that the proposed transaction is entitled to presumptive streamlined treatment
under section 63.03(b)(1)(ii) of the Commission’s rules3 and that a grant of the application will serve the
public interest, convenience, and necessity.
