INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN REPORT The Registrant Happiness Express, Inc. is referred to herein as the "Company."  ITEM 5. OTHER EVENTS. In connection with the Company's previously reported on-going investigation into financial irregularities with respect to its financial statements and accounting records, information has been discovered which indicates that a revision of the Company's financial statements as of March 31, 1995 and for the fiscal year then ended ("fiscal 1995") and for each of the first three quarterly periods in the fiscal year ended March 31, 1996 ("fiscal 1996") will be necessary. As a result, the Company has not as yet filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 1996. Because of the accounting irregularities described in previously reported press releases, the Company cautioned stockholders and others not to rely on any of the foregoing financial statements. The Company also advised that Coopers & Lybrand, LLP had withdrawn its auditors' report related to the fiscal 1995 financial statements, a copy of which withdrawal is annexed hereto as Exhibit A and is incorporated herein by this reference. Coopers & Lybrand, LLP is working with the Company so that corrected financial reports can be filed. Revised financial statements including an auditors' report for fiscal 1995 will be issued in conjunction with the filing of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 1996. Such filing will be made following completion of the Company's investigation which is currently expected to be completed within the next two months.  ITEM 7. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND EXHIBITS. (c) Exhibits Number Exhibit A Copy of letter dated May 31, 1996 to the Company from Coopers & Lybrand, LLP, the Company's independent auditors. 2
