The Company received a notice that its securities are not in compliance with the continued listing standards of the NYSE, and in response has evaluated its options to remain listed or to go dark and has determined that going dark is the best path for the Company due to expected cost savings and the Company’s current inability to realize the traditional benefits of public company status.

Despite the lack of these benefits, we incur all of the significant annual expenses and indirect costs associated with being a public company.
