With these filings and additional submissions previously delivered to NASDAQ, the company believes that it has now regained compliance with the requirements for continued listing on The NASDAQ Global Market; however, the company is awaiting confirmation of compliance from NASDAQ.
The company expects to receive a new notice from NASDAQ that it is not in compliance due to its failure to solicit proxies and hold the company's annual meeting of stockholders within twelve months of the end of the company's fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, as required by NASDAQ Marketplace Rules. The company intends to ask NASDAQ for additional time to comply with these requirements. In that regard, today, the company filed its Proxy Statement with the SEC for the 2006 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on August 9, 2007.
