If the staff of the Listing Qualifications Department accepts the plan, it may grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the Company's Form 10-K due date, or until September 30, 2013, for the Company to regain compliance. The Company intends to submit a plan to regain compliance as soon as possible.
