  TUCSON, AZ, Aug 02 (Marketwire) -- 
The following is a statement from Vante:

    Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson
between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at
Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of
our company.

    The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any
manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce,
which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and
all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we
also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with
their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of
civility with others. 

    We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions
against Vante and its employees.
