Additional Information and Where to Find It

In connection with the proposed merger transaction, the Company will file with the SEC and furnish to the Company's shareholders a proxy statement and other relevant documents. This press release does not constitute a solicitation of any vote or approval.

Investors will be able to obtain a free copy of documents filed with the SEC at the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov .

The directors, executive officers and certain other members of management and employees of the Company may be deemed "participants" in the solicitation of proxies from shareholders of the Company in favor of the proposed merger.
