should the Commission or the staff of the Commission, acting pursuant to delegated authority, declare the filing effective, it does not foreclose the Commission from taking any action with respect to the filing;
the action of the Commission or the staff, acting pursuant to delegated authority, in declaring the filing effective, does not relieve the Company from its full responsibility for the adequacy and accuracy of the disclosure in the filing; and
the Company may not assert the staff comments and the declaration of effectiveness as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities laws of the United States.

If you have any further comments, require any further information or if any questions should arise in connection with this submission, please call Mr. Jeffrey Li at (202) 298-1735 or Ms. Chelsea Anderson at (206) 816-1312 at Garvey Schubert Barer.
