Mario Gabelli serves as the Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Issuer (the "Board").  As disclosed in Item 1 above, Mario Gabelli is also deemed to be the control person of the Issuer.  Because of the foregoing, the Reporting Persons at any time and from time to time in the ordinary course of performing their roles relating to the Issuer or as investors in the Issuer may propose or take action in relation to the business of the Issuer including: changes in the present Board or management of the Issuer, including any plans or proposals to change the number or term of directors or to fill any existing vacancies on the Board; the business and operations of the Issuer; share repurchases by the Issuer; distributions by the Issuer, including the amounts, makeup and timing thereof; the terms of any new issuances of an existing or new class of securities by the Issuer; sales of assets; changes in the Issuer's charter or by-laws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person; and any such other matters.  Any such proposals or actions by the Reporting Persons may be based on the Reporting Persons' views of their best interest, their obligations to the Issuer (to the extent required by applicable law or agreement), and other factors in light of (i) the Issuer's financial position, future actions taken by the Board, price levels of the common stock or other equity or debt securities of the Issuer and (ii) general economic, political, or industry conditions, including conditions in the securities market, or changes in laws, rules, regulations or customs, and any other conditions or changes thereto, in the Reporting Persons' sole determination.  In as much as none of these proposals or activities would represent a material change in the plans of the Reporting Persons regarding their control over the Issuer, the Reporting Persons will not file amendments to this Schedule 13D reflective thereof.

The Reporting Persons intend to review their investments in the Issuer on a continuing basis and depending on various factors the Reporting Persons may deem relevant to their investment decision, including, without limitation, the Issuer's financial position and strategic direction, the price levels of the Issuer's common stock, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may decide to acquire additional securities, sell some or all of their securities, or to continue to hold their existing position in the securities for investment.
