CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended, (the “Act”) provides protection from liability in private lawsuits for “forward-looking” statements made by public companies under certain circumstances, provided that the public company discloses with specificity the risk factors that may impact its future results. We want to take advantage of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Act. Certain statements made in this press release are forward-looking statements under the Act. Except for historical financial and business performance information, statements made in this press release should be considered forward-looking as referred to in the Act. Much of the information that looks towards future performance of our company is based on various factors and important assumptions about future events that may or may not actually come true. As a result, our operations and financial results in the future could differ materially and substantially from those we have discussed in the forward-looking statements made in this press release. Certain risks and uncertainties are detailed from time to time in our filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). You are strongly urged to review all such filings for a more detailed discussion of such risks and uncertainties. The Company’s SEC filings are readily obtainable at no charge at and at, as well as on a number of other commercial web sites.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

The Company plans to file with the SEC a proxy statement and white proxy card on Schedule 14A in connection with the 2013 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2013 Proxy Materials”). The 2013 Proxy Materials will contain important information about the Company, the 2013 annual meeting and related matters. Stockholders are urged to read the 2013 Proxy Materials carefully when they are available. Stockholders will be able to obtain free copies of the 2013 Proxy Materials and other documents filed with the SEC by the Company through the web site maintained by the SEC at and by contacting the Company’s Department of Investor Relations at 6600 North Military Trail, Boca Raton, FL 33496. In addition, stockholders can obtain free copies of the documents filed with the SEC on the Company’s website at

Participants in the Solicitation
