At a special meeting of shareholders held on March 25, 2011, 13,246,702 shares, or 84% of the shares voted on the proposal, voted for the increase in number of authorized shares of common stock. 89% of the outstanding shares entitled to vote voted on the proposal.

Chairman of the Board, Richard L.

Mr. Postma continued, "We have filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to register shares of common stock that we intend to offer to our shareholders in a shareholder rights offering and to other investors in a public offering. We currently plan on an offering of $30,000,000 commencing in the second quarter of 2011. Other terms of the offering, including price and number of shares to be offered, are yet to be determined."

Mr. Postma concluded, "In determining the price of the offering, the Board of Directors will consider a number of factors, including the price at which shareholders and prospective shareholders are expected to be willing to purchase shares, historical and current trading prices for our common stock, the need for liquidity and capital and the desire to provide an opportunity to our shareholders to participate in the rights offering on a pro rata basis."
