The meeting will be held at a time and location to be designated in a revised Notice of Meeting, to be issued later today. The current record date of February 26, 2007 for the annual meeting remains unchanged.
The Company also announced that, in light of the expressed intention of a shareholder group to act by written consent under certain circumstances, the Board of Directors has set a record date of the close of business on March 29, 2007 for the purpose of determining the shareholders entitled to act by written consent.
The purposes of the Board's actions are to provide additional time to review the proposed actions of the shareholder group and also to evaluate alternative courses of actions that could potentially be presented to the shareholders, including a possible sale of the Company.
