Authority for the reverse split was granted to the Board by the Company's stockholders at a November 4, 2011, special meeting.
At December 27, 2011, a total of 1,041,001,331 shares of common stock were issued and outstanding. As a result of the reverse stock split, the outstanding shares of common stock will be reduced to a total of 41,640,053 shares.
