The opinions expressed herein are limited to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as currently in effect, and we express no opinion as to the effect of the laws of any other jurisdiction on the opinions expressed herein.

 

We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement on Form S-1 (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Company to effect registration of the Shares and the Option Shares under the Securities Act of 1933 and to the reference to us under the caption “Legal Matters” in the prospectus constituting a part of such Registration Statement.  In giving such consent, we do not hereby admit that we are included in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act of 1933 or the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission promulgated thereunder.
