Dr. Albrechts decision to resign is solely for personal reasons and is not due to any disagreement with the Company. Dr. Albrecht is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Dr. Albrecht and his wife have accepted an invitation to serve on a three-year voluntary mission for the church in Japan. Because of the distance from the Company and the duration of the assignment, Dr. Albrecht determined that it was appropriate to resign from the Board. A press release announcing his resignation was released on February 13, 2009 and is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
