The shareholder lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the
Southern District of Texas. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class
Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements or failed to

prospects. Specifically, defendants misrepresented or failed to disclose that:
(1) the Company incorrectly capitalized certain lease maintenance costs and
certain internal selling, general and administrative costs; (2) the Company
improperly presented certain cash flow items and caused certain long-lived
assets to be impaired; (3) the Company was unable to sell its interests in
Petrodelta S.A. to PT Pertamina (Persero); (4) the Company lacked adequate
internal and financial controls; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, the
Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant
times.

If you purchased Harvest securities during the Class Period, you have until
May 21, 2013 to move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must
