Correction of Erroneous Date
The original Form 8-K that is amended by this Form 8-K/A was filed February 29, 2012 and refers in error to a Date of Report for the date of first event reported as February 23, 2011.  This was a typographic error and the correct Date of Report should have been February 23, 2012.



Item 8.01       Other Events
On February 28, 2012, the Company published on its website, at, a letter from its Chief Executive Officer explaining the events disclosed in this Form 8-K, along with the reasons for the occurrence of those events.  On March 2, 2012, the Company revised the letter published on its website to remove the following sentence in the second paragraph of the letter:
We have received SEC approval of our Preliminary Information Statement and will be mailing notice of our increase in the number of our shares to shareholders of record.
It was an incorrect to state that the Company “received SEC approval.”  Under regulations applicable to Information Statements, a registrant first files a Preliminary Information Statement.  If no comment letter is received from the SEC within 10 days of the filing of the Preliminary Information Statement, the registrant may file a Definitive Information Statement and mail it to all shareholders as of the record date.  The action described in the Information Statement becomes effective 20 days after completion of mailing of the Definitive Information Statement.  The Company did not receive a comment letter from the SEC and is therefore proceeding with the additional steps described above.
A complete copy of the revised letter is attached to this Form 8-K/A as Exhibit 99.1.
Item 9.01        Exhibits
Letter from Chief Executive Officer published on Company’s website.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
