It is expected that the Board of Directors of the Company will elect Jon Thompson, the company's President and Chief Operating Officer, as Chief Executive Officer effective July 1, 2009.

Mr. Morgan commented, "I am fortunate to have co-founded and worked at this great company for many years and am confident that I leave it in qualified hands.

I am confident in Jon's ability to lead the company and believe it is time for me to step aside and enjoy the fruits of a lifetime of work."

Once the Board of Directors elects Mr. Thompson to the Chief Executive Officer position, he will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer upon Mr. Morgan's departure on June 30, 2009.

Mr. Thompson commented, "I have worked closely with Ron for many years. He has done a great job leading our company and has laid a solid foundation to move the company forward. With the management team we've assembled, I believe the company will perform well."
