As investors in the Issuer, the Reporting Persons have had and
may continue to have general discussions with representatives of the Issuer
regarding various matters relating to the business and operations of the
Issuer.  The Reporting Persons have also had and may continue to have
conversations with other stockholders of the Issuer. In the course of such
conversations with members of management, the board of directors and other
stockholders, the Reporting Persons may suggest actions that could result
in, among other things: (a) the acquisition by the Reporting Persons of

any class of the Issuer's securities to be delisted from a national
securities exchange or to cease to be authorized to be quoted in an
inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities
association; (i) a class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming
eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended; or (j) any action similar
to those enumerated above.

In addition, the Reporting Persons also intend to review their investment
in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors,
including, without limitation, the Issuer's financial position and
strategic direction, the outcome of the discussions and actions referenced
above, actions taken by the Issuer's board of directors, changes to the
composition of the board of directors, price levels of the Common Stock and
other securities, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting
Persons, conditions in the securities market and general economic and
industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such
actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer as they deem
appropriate including, without limitation, (i) purchasing additional
securities of the Issuer in open market or privately negotiated
transactions; (ii) selling all or part of the securities of the Issuer
owned by such Reporting Person in open market or privately negotiated
transactions; and/or (iii) one or more combinations of the foregoing.
Any open market or privately negotiated purchases or sales, acquisition
recommendations or proposals or other transactions may be made at any time
