Cautionary Note Regarding the Chapter 11 Cases
The Company’s stockholders are cautioned that the it is likely that the Company’s stockholders will receive nothing in exchange for its common stock upon the Company’s emergence from bankruptcy and the common stock will have no value and that trading in securities of the Company during the pendency of the Chapter 11 cases will be highly speculative and will pose substantial risks. It is possible the Company’s outstanding securities may be cancelled and extinguished upon confirmation of a restructuring plan by the Bankruptcy Court. In such an event, the Company’s stockholders and other security holders would not be entitled to receive or retain any cash, securities or other property on account of their cancelled securities. Trading prices for the Company’s common stock and other securities may bear little or no relation to actual recovery, if any, by holders thereof in the Company’s Chapter 11 cases. Accordingly, the Company urges extreme caution with respect to existing and future investments in its securities.
