The Letter Agreement does not change the amount available under the Credit Facility or the formula by which availability is determined.
On March 19, 2009, the Company issued a press release announcing the Letter Agreement. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
