        Founder, ProGene Biomedical, Inc. (dba IBT Laboratories);
     4. Mr. Steven A. Mock, CPA -- Partner, BKD, LLP; and
     5. Mr. Thomas Reidy.

Further commenting on the appointment of Mr. Severson, Tom Reidy stated that 'based on several conversations with Mr. Severson, I believe we are totally aligned on the aspects of effective corporate governance, transparency of board and company actions, and performance-based remuneration programs. Clint's emphasis on management accountability and the need for sharp focus and effective strategic planning are essential in today's marketplace. We just need more people like Clint on the board '.
