Purpose of Transaction

The securities reported in Item 5 were disposed of in certain open market transactions and in a certain privately negotiated sale.  The remaining securities beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons are being held for investment purposes.  At any time, the Reporting Persons may determine to dispose of some or all of the Common Stock they hold, subject to applicable law.  The Reporting Persons may also make purchases of Common Stock from time to time, subject to applicable law.  Any decision to make such additional dispositions or purchases will depend, however, on various factors, including, without limitation, the price of the Common Stock, stock market conditions, alternative investment opportunities and the business prospects of the Issuer.  Other than as set forth above, the Reporting Persons have no plans or proposals which relate to or would result in any of the matters specified in Item 4 of Form 13D.

Item 5 is hereby amended as follows:
