In announcing his pending departure, Mr. DeBoer stated that he had accomplished the goals he set when he joined the company in 1997 and the Company restructuring that started in 2008 is now largely completed.  He is ready for the next challenging career opportunity. 

Under his leadership, the Company has developed a strong finance and accounting team and has identified an internal candidate expected to be promoted following Mr. DeBoer’s departure.

A full copy of the agreement is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
