NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS
CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false
and misleading statements and failed to disclose material adverse facts about
the Company's business, operations and prospects. Specifically, defendants
misrepresented or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company incorrectly
accounted for its Software Updates by failing to properly treat the Software
Updates as post-contract customer support under U.S. Generally Accepted
Accounting Principles; (2) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial
controls; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were
materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than
