Pursuant to the above authorization, a press release was issued on November 17, 2008, and an announcement was made on the 'ticker' of the Exchange at the close of the trading session on November 17, 2008 and other various dates of the proposed suspension of trading in the Securities.

The Company had a right to appeal to the Committee for Review of the Board of Directors of NYSE Regulation the determination to delist the Securities, provided that it filed a written request for such a review with the Secretary of the Exchange within ten business days of receiving notice of delisting determination.
