This Amendment No. 4 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements Item 4 in the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, filed on June 19, 2007 (the “Schedule TO”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission by LSF5 Accredited Merger Co., Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Purchaser”) and LSF5 Accredited Investments, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as amended on July 3, 2007, July 17, 2007 and July 30, 2007.

Except as otherwise indicated in this Amendment, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Schedule TO.

Item 4. Terms of the Transaction

The information set forth in the section of the Offer to Purchase entitled “Terms of the Offer” is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

On August 10, 2007, Lone Star informed the Chairman of the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company that, in light of the drastic deterioration in the financial and operational condition of the Company, among other things, as of today, the Company would fail to satisfy the conditions to the closing of the tender offer. Accordingly, Purchaser does not expect to be accepting Shares tendered as of the end of the current offer period ending at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on August 14, 2007.


After due inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
