Letter to Shareholders

October 1, 2012

Dear Shareholder,

Every day new evidence emerges demonstrating that Clinton Group only has short-sighted and short-term goals that do not promote the creation of long-term shareholder value. The fact that Clinton Group has been engaged in day trading is the latest evidence, and it should be a huge warning sign to our shareholders. It makes it even more unsurprising that Clinton Group has made a series of short-sighted demands to our Board and then hastily assembled a slate of nominees with one dimensional retail experience. The collective experience of their proposed Board pales in comparison to the compelling diversity of relevant and valuable experience your current Board brings to the table. Clinton Group’s proposed directors cannot reasonably be expected to have the knowledge and expertise that is necessary to execute our strategy at this critical time.
