The following constitutes Amendment No. 2 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 2”).  This Amendment No. 2 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

Item 4.                      Purpose of Transaction.
 
Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

The Reporting Persons have serious concerns with certain corporate governance provisions of the Issuer, which the Reporting Persons believe are meant to entrench the members of the Issuer’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) and reduce accountability to stockholders.  These provisions include a staggered Board, which ensures that stockholders can elect only a fraction of the Board during any given year, the combined role of Chairman and CEO, the inability of stockholders to be able to act outside of an annual meeting by calling a special meeting or acting by written consent and the use of a plurality vote standard instead of a majority vote standard in uncontested director elections, among other things.  The Reporting Persons also continue to be concerned with the failure of the Issuer’s non-employee directors to make a meaningful financial commitment to the Issuer by investing their own funds in the Shares.
 
The Reporting Persons are not alone in their concerns that these corporate governance provisions are harmful to stockholders.  Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS), a leading proxy advisory firm, considers a classified board structure, the use of a plurality vote standard in uncontested director elections, and the inability of shareholders to call special meetings or to act by written consent, among other things, to be problematic.  ISS has also noted that “the only real motive for implementing a [classified board] is to make it more difficult to change control of the board” and that “empirical evidence has suggested that [a classified board] is not in shareholders’ best interests from a financial perspective.”
 
The Reporting Persons anticipate nominating one or more persons for election as a director of the Issuer at the Issuer’s 2012 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2012 Annual Meeting”), and will submit such nominations to the Issuer at such time as is permitted by the Issuer’s Bylaws.
 
On January 24, 2012, Credit Opportunities delivered to the Issuer a letter requesting to inspect a complete list of the Issuer’s stockholders and certain other corporate records as permitted by applicable state law (the “Stockholder List Demand Letter”).  The purpose of the Stockholder List Demand Letter is to enable Credit Opportunities to communicate with the Issuer’s stockholders in connection with the election of directors at the 2012 Annual Meeting and any other matters as may properly come before the 2012 Annual Meeting.
