the sale of, the securities held in the Managed Portfolios and 
disclaims any ownership associated with such rights.

Item 5.  Ownership of Five Percent or Less of a Class

The Managed Portfolios, set forth in Item 4 above, have the right to

securities held in their respective accounts.

Item 10. Certification

By signing below I certify that, to the best of my knowledge and 
belief, the securities referred to above were acquired in the

and do not have the effect of changing or influencing the control of 
the issuer of such securities and were not acquired in connection 
with or as a participant in any transaction having such purposes or
