Item 4.
Ownership.
 
Reference is hereby made to Items 5-9 and 11 of pages 2 and 3 of this Schedule, which Items are incorporated by reference herein.
 
The securities to which this Schedule relates (the “Securities”) are owned by certain investment limited partnerships and other client accounts, for which 7x7 serves as general partner and/or investment manager.  7x7, as those investment limited partnerships’ and client accounts’ general partner and/or investment manager, and Douglas K. Lee, as managing member and majority owner of 7x7, may therefore be deemed to beneficially own the Securities owned by such investment limited partnerships and client accounts for the purposes of Rule 13d-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Act”), insofar as they may be deemed to have the power to direct the voting or disposition of those Securities.
 
Neither the filing of this Schedule nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that 7x7 or Mr. Lee is, for any other purpose, the beneficial owner of any of the Securities, and each of 7x7 and Mr. Lee disclaims beneficial ownership as to the Securities, except to the extent of his or its pecuniary interests therein.
 

 
-5- 

 

Under the definition of “beneficial ownership” in Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, it is also possible that the other officers or members of 7x7 might be deemed the “beneficial owners” of some or all of the Securities insofar as they may be deemed to share the power to direct the voting or disposition of the Securities.  Neither the filing of this Schedule nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that any of such individuals is, for any purpose, the beneficial owner of any of the Securities, and such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed.
 
The calculation of percentage of beneficial ownership in item 11 of pages 2 and 3 was derived from the Issuer’s Form 10-Q Quarterly Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 5, 2008, in which the Issuer stated that the number of shares of its common stock outstanding as of October 31, 2008 was 115,442,434 shares.
 
Item 5.
Ownership of Five Percent or Less of a Class
 
Not applicable.
 
Item 6.
Ownership of More than Five Percent on Behalf of Another Person.
 
7x7 serves as general partner and investment manager to certain client accounts that have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Issuer’s common stock.  No individual client’s holdings exceed five percent of that common stock.
 
Item 7.
Identification and Classification of the Subsidiary Which Acquired the Security Being Reported on By the Parent Holding Company
 
Not applicable.
 
Item 8.
Identification and Classification of Members of the Group
 
Not applicable.
 
Item 9.
Notice of Dissolution of Group
 
Not applicable.
 
Item 10.
Certification
 
By signing below I certify that, to the best of my knowledge and belief, the securities referred to above were not acquired and are not held for the purpose of or with the effect of changing or influencing the control of the issuer of the securities and were not acquired and are not held in connection with or as a participant in any transaction having that purpose or effect.
