The negotiations with Hunt are ongoing and there can be no assurance with respect to the terms or the timing of any transaction, or whether conditions to closing, including third party consents, will be satisfied and a transaction will be concluded at all.

As a matter of policy, the Company does not comment on or provide the market with updates as to the status of the negotiations with Hunt, nor will it comment upon any rumors with regard to either of the foregoing or make a further announcement regarding the Board's consideration of any transaction with Hunt until such time, if ever, that it enters into a definitive agreement for a completed transaction or is otherwise required to make an announcement.
