DG's strategic alternatives. The Special Committee process and the
exploration of DG's strategic alternatives remain active and ongoing,
and the Special Committee currently is engaged in negotiations
regarding DG's strategic alternatives. DG can offer no assurances
that such negotiations will result in a transaction agreement
