director of the Company since August 2009, and was a board member of the
Company's predecessor company from its inception in 2007. The Company
believes that the decisions of Mr. Kelly and Ms. Davis to resign from the

to the Company's operations, policies or procedures or any other concerns
regarding the Company.

role as Chairman and appreciate the active engagement of Cheng Davis in her
role as a director. We highly value both Paul and Cheng's contributions and
