Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
On August 8, 2006, the Securities and Exchange Commission approved a new NASDAQ listing standard setting forth Direct Registration System (DRS) eligibility requirements, which require listed companies to become DRS eligible by January 1, 2008. DRS enables investors to maintain securities electronically on the books of a transfer agent or issuer, and allows for the electronic transfer of securities. To meet DRS requirements, on July 24, 2007, the Companys Board of Directors amended and restated its By-Laws to permit the issuance and transfer of uncertificated shares. Previously, the Companys Bylaws provided every Company shareholder with the right to have a certificate certifying the number of shares owned by such shareholder. Such changes to the Bylaws are reflected in Article III, Sections 4, 6, 7 and 9.
Item 8.01. Other Events.
