Item 3.01
Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

As of December 31, 2010, the registrant’s board of directors authorized the transfer of the listing of the trading of shares of its class A common stock, par value $0.01 per share, from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) to the NYSE Amex LLC (the “NYSE Amex”) because the NYSE Amex is more compatible with the trading liquidity and market capitalization of the registrant’s class A common stock.  Accordingly, the registrant intends to submit an application for the listing of the trading of its class A common stock to the NYSE Amex.  While the registrant can give no assurance that the NYSE Amex will approve the listing, upon such approval the registrant will delist the class A common stock from trading on the NYSE concurrently with the listing of the trading on the NYSE Amex.




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.
