On October 22, 2007, the Company's Board of Directors announced that it has adopted a policy of considering paying special cash dividends, in amounts to be determined, on a quarterly basis. Any determination to declare a special dividend, as well as the amount of any special dividend which may be declared, would be based on the Company's financial position, earnings outlook, capital spending plans and other relevant factors at that time.
