In order to better finance the company, the board of directors has approved and authorized a consolidation of the company's issued and outstanding shares on a one new share for each five current shares (1 for 5) basis (the "Consolidation"). As a result, the 127,012,810 shares currently outstanding will be consolidated to 25,402,562 shares. The company will not be issuing fractional shares as a result of the consolidation. Instead, all fractional shares equal or greater to one‐half will be rounded to the next whole share.

A letter of transmittal will be sent to the registered shareholders providing instructions to surrender the share certificates evidencing their pre‐consolidated common shares for replacement certificates representing the number of post‐consolidated common shares they are entitled to as a result of the consolidation. Until surrendered, each certificate representing the pre‐consolidated common shares will be deemed to represent the number of post‐consolidated common shares of the company that the holder thereof is entitled to as a result of the consolidation
