As previously announced on June 26, 2007, on June 25, 2007, the Company received a letter from the Board of Directors of the NASDAQ Stock Market (the “Nasdaq Board”) informing the Company that the Nasdaq Board had called the previously disclosed decision of the NASDAQ Listing and Hearing Review Council (the “Listing Council”) for review. In its decision, the Listing Council had determined to suspend the Company’s securities from trading on June 28, 2007, if the Company did not come into compliance with the continued listing requirements of the NASDAQ Global Select Market by June 26, 2007. The Nasdaq Board has now determined to stay this decision to suspend the Company’s securities from trading pending further consideration by the Nasdaq Board in July 2007. The Company’s securities will remain listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market during the review by the Nasdaq Board. The Company continues to work diligently to complete and file its required filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission as soon as practicable.
