The letter also included a public reprimand in connection with the Company's non-compliance with the shareholder approval and listing of additional shares requirements set forth in Marketplace Rules 4350(i) and 4310(c)(17), respectively, as previously disclosed by the Company in a press release dated January 26, 2009 and Current Report on Form 8-K as filed on January 29, 2009.
