The Filing Persons are members or affiliates of members of the Buyer Consortium and are filing the Transaction Statement because the Share Purchases, in light of the formation of the Buyer Consortium and the Proposed Transaction, could be viewed as steps in a series of transactions having the reasonable likelihood or purpose of producing a Rule 13e-3 transaction under the Exchange Act.
SHAREHOLDERS AND OTHER INVESTORS OF THE COMPANY ARE URGED TO READ THE TRANSACTION STATEMENT, THE EXHIBITS TO THE TRANSACTION STATEMENT AND OTHER MATERIAL FILED WITH OR FURNISHED TO THE SEC CAREFULLY WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE, AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHARE PURCHASES, THE PROPOSED TRANSACTION, THE BUYER CONSORTIUM MEMBERS, THE FILING PERSONS, THE COMPANY, AND RELATED MATTERS.

As of the date of this release, there is no definitive agreement with respect to the Proposed Transaction, or any other transaction that constitutes a Rule 13e-3 transaction, between the Company and any of the Filing Persons. To the knowledge of the Filing Persons, at this time, the special committee of the board of directors of the Company, formed to evaluate the Proposal or any other going-private transaction involving the Company, has not made any definitive determination regarding the Proposal or the Proposed Transaction, and no assurance can be given that any proposal, any definitive agreement or any transaction related to the Proposed Transaction or any other transaction that constitutes a Rule 13e-3 transaction will be entered into or consummated. The Proposal provides that a binding commitment with respect to the Proposed Transaction will result only from the execution of definitive agreements, and then only on the terms and conditions provided in such documents. If and when such a transaction is agreed to between the Buyer Consortium and the Company, the Filing Persons intend to amend the Transaction Statement.
This release is neither a solicitation of proxy, an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities and it is not a substitute for any proxy statement or other filings that may be filed with or furnished to the SEC.
