Item 3.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
 
The aggregate purchase price of the 445,456 Shares owned by Steel Partners II is approximately $1,441,872, including brokerage commissions.  The Shares owned by Steel Partners II were acquired with partnership funds.
 
Steel Partners II effects purchases of securities primarily through margin accounts maintained for it with prime brokers, which may extend margin credit to it as and when required to open or carry positions in the margin accounts, subject to applicable federal margin regulations, stock exchange rules and the prime brokers’ credit policies.  In such instances, the positions held in the margin accounts are pledged as collateral security for the repayment of debit balances in the accounts.

Lichtenstein may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares owned by Steel Partners II.
 
(b)           Each of the Reporting Persons may be deemed to have shared power to vote and dispose of the Shares reported in this Schedule 13D owned directly by Steel Partners II.
 
(c)           There have been no transactions in the securities of the Issuer during the past 60 days by the Reporting Persons other than the distribution to the indirect investors of Steel Partners II of an aggregate of 572,744 Shares on July 15, 2009.
 
(d)           No person other than the Reporting Persons is known to have the right to receive, or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or proceeds from the sale of, the Shares.
 
(e)           Not applicable.
 
The filing of this Schedule 13D shall not be construed as an admission that the Reporting Persons are, for purposes of the Exchange Act, the beneficial owners of any securities covered by this Schedule 13D.  The Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of 164,328 Shares held by Steel Offshore.
