The Reporting Persons intend to review their investments in the Issuer on a continuing basis and depending on various factors the Reporting Persons may deem relevant to their investment decision, including, without limitation, the Issuer's financial position and strategic direction, the price levels of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may decide to acquire additional Securities, sell some or all of their Securities, or to continue to hold their existing position in the Securities for investment.
Each of the Covered Persons who is not a Reporting Person has purchased any of the Securities beneficially owned by him for investment for his own account of that of one of more members of his immediate family.
