announced today that it intends to voluntarily withdraw the listing of the
Company's common stock from the Chicago Stock Exchange.  The Company has decided
to withdraw its listing from the Chicago Stock Exchange to streamline its

result from dual listings.  The Company does not believe that withdrawing its

its stock.  The Company's common stock will continue to be listed on the New
York Stock Exchange.
