Item 1.01    Entry into Material Definitive Agreement

On March 1, 2011, Data Storage Corporation (the “Company”) and John F. Coghlan (the “Investor”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”).

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Investor  purchased Three Million Six Hundred Forty Thousand Seven Hundred Seventy-Seven (3,640,777) shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock) at a price of $0.412 for an aggregate purchase price of $1,500,000.
Item 3.02    Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

Pursuant to the Agreement, on March 1, 2011, we issued 3,640,777 shares of our Common Stock to the Investor. 

Such securities were not registered under the Securities Act of 1933.  The issuance of these shares was exempt from registration, pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.  These securities qualified for exemption under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 since the issuance securities by us did not involve a public offering. The offering was not a “public offering” as defined in Section 4(2) due to the insubstantial number of persons involved in the deal, size of the offering, manner of the offering and number of securities offered. We did not undertake an offering in which we sold a high number of securities to a high number of investors. In addition, these shareholders had the necessary investment intent as required by Section 4(2) since they agreed to and received share certificates bearing a legend stating that such securities are restricted pursuant to Rule 144 of the 1933 Securities Act. This restriction ensures that these securities would not be immediately redistributed into the market and therefore not be part of a “public offering.” Based on an analysis of the above factors, we have met the requirements to qualify for exemption under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 for this transaction.
