Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

As reported in the Form 8-K of Phoenix International Ventures, Inc. (the “Company”) dated March 3, 2011, on February 27, 2011, the Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Niv Nissenson as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) originally given on February 22, 2011.  Mr. Nissenson was the Company’s principal accounting officer.  Mr. Nissenson remains on the Company’s Board of Directors.  Mr. Nissenson resigned for personal reasons.  Mr. Nissenson indicated that he had no disagreements with the Company’s accounting policies or practices.  The resignation was effective on February 27, 2011.  The Company appointed Teja Shariff as the Company’s interim Chief Financial Officer until the sooner of June 1, 2011 or until a permanent replacement is elected by the Board.  Mr. Shariff is the brother of the Company’s CEO and President, Mr. Zahir Teja.

On March 22, 2011 Neev Nissenson resigned as Secretary and as a member of the board of directors of the Company and its subsidiaries.  On the same date the Company, Zahir Teja and certain other parties entered into a settlement agreement and mutual release with Mr. Nissenson.  Under terms of the agreement, the Company agreed to pay to Mr. Nissenson the sum of $136,593 in accrued salary and related compensation under his employment agreement with the Company, payable in monthly installments of $2,500 each commencing September 30, 2011.  Mr. Nissenson agreed to terminate his employment agreement with the Company and the parties exchanged mutual releases.

In a related development, on March 22, 2011, the Company, Zahir Teja and certain other parties entered into a settlement agreement and mutual release with Mr. Haim Nissenson and Anney Consulting Corp. (“Anney”).  Under terms of the agreement, the October 2, 2006 consulting agreement among Mr. Haim Nissenson, Anney, Zahir Teja and the Company, and all amendments thereto, was terminated, and in full payment for $181,211 accrued consulting fees payable to Anney, the Company agreed to issue to Anney an aggregate of 308,018 shares of Company common stock.  The agreement also obligates the Company to remove Haim Nissenson and Neev Nissonson from a $15,000 personal guaranty to an Israeli bank by September 30, 2011, and provides Haim Nissenson and Anney with certain piggyback registration rights on all Company shares  owned by them, subject to the terms of the maximum two year lockup agreement referred to below.  For so long as the lockup agreement remains in effect, the parties agreed that Anney and Haim Nissenson could nominate one individual to serve as a member of the board of directors of the Company so long as such nominee is reasonably acceptable to the members of the Company’s board of directors.

The parties to the above agreements agreed to mutually dismiss with prejudice a litigation brought by the Company and Mr. Teja against Haim Nissenson, Anney and Neev Nissenson in the Second Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada.

To fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Neev Nissenson, on March 24, 2011, Zahir Teja appointed Amit Barzelai to serve as a member of the board of directors.  Pursuant to the authority granted to the directors in the Company By-Laws, Messrs. Teja and Barzelai then amended the By-Laws to increase the size of the board of directors of the Company from two persons to a minimum of three and a maximum of seven persons.  The directors then appointed Messrs.
