(the “Company”) filed a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division (the “Bankruptcy Court”) seeking relief under the provisions of Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) (Case No. 10-26881) (the “Case”).

On September 27, 2011 (the “Confirmation Date”), the Bankruptcy Court entered an order (the “Confirmation Order”) confirming the Company’s Third Amended Plan of Reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (as amended and supplemented, the “Plan”).

On October 27, 2011 (the “Effective Date”), the Company consummated its reorganization under the Bankruptcy Code and the Plan became effective. Pursuant to the Plan, on the Effective Date all equity interests in the Company which existed immediately prior to the Petition Date were automatically cancelled and the obligations of the Company with respect to such equity interests were discharged. Accordingly, on the Effective Date the Company will file a Form 15 “Certification and Notice of Termination of Registration Under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Suspension of Duty to File Reports Under Sections 12 and 15(d) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934” with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and will cease to be a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
