As described in the Forms 8-K dated October 29, 2012 and November 13, 2012,
the Company intends to correct the effect of the accounting errors including
the potential inventory theft in Brazil on previously issued interim financial
statements by restating the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011
that will be presented comparatively in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for
the period ended September 28, 2012 and amending previously filed Forms 10-Q
for the periods ended June 29, 2012 and March 30, 2012. Contemporaneous with
the filing of the above referenced Quarterly Reports, the Company also intends
to file an Annual Report on Form 10-K/A to restate previously issued annual
financial statements and related financial information contained therein as of
December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the three year period then ended.

The Company’s restated financial statements will be filed as soon as
practicable following the conclusion of its ongoing internal review being
conducted with the assistance of outside counsel and a forensic accounting
firm and assessment of the findings, which is expected to be completed by
mid-February. Based on the preliminary findings in the internal review to
date, the Company does not believe that its previously disclosed estimates of
the amounts of understated costs of sale and overstated inventory will change
materially.
