INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT

Item 8.01.

Other Events.

On October 31, 2005, the Company announced that, in connection with its previously disclosed litigation, the court has entered an order finding in favor of the Company with respect to Mason Capital's claim that the Company's proposed recapitalization should be subject to a "supermajority" vote described below. The court has, however, enjoined the Company from closing the recapitalization until December 1, 2005 in order to provide Mason Capital with time to seek further relief in the Second Circuit.

As previously described, Mason Capital is seeking to stop the proposed recapitalization unless and until the proposed recapitalization is approved by two "supermajority votes," one vote of 80% of the holders of the Company's Class B common stock, and a second, separate vote of two-thirds of the disinterested holders of the Company's Class B common stock.

On October 11, 2005, the Company held separate meetings of the Class A and Class B shareholders at which the proposed recapitalization was approved by both classes of shareholders. It remains the Company's intention to close the recapitalization as soon as possible if the current injunction expires and there is no other injunction or stay in place that would preclude closing

A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Further detail on the proposed recapitalization and recapitalization agreement can be found in the recapitalization agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to a Form 8-K filed by the Company on June 8, 2005, proxy statement, which was filed on September 2, 2005 and mailed to shareholders shortly thereafter and prospectus supplement, which was filed on September 30 and mailed to shareholders shortly thereafter.
