On March 2, 2012, Adam Chibib, the Company’s Senior Vice President and Chief  Financial Officer, is entering into a pre-arranged stock trading plan in accordance with guidelines specified in Rule 10b5-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Company’s insider trading policy (a “Trading Plan”).  On or about March 8, 2012, Joaquin Aviles, the Company’s Vice President of Technology, intends to enter into a Trading Plan.  Rule 10b5-1 permits insiders, at a time when the insiders are not in possession of material, non-public information about the Company, to enter into pre-arranged plans for buying or selling Company stock.
 
Mr. Chibib’s Trading Plan provides for the sale of up to 17% of his total present Company holdings, beginning 3 business days after the Company announces its results for the 2nd quarter of Fiscal Year 2012.  Such announcement is expected during the first week of May, 2012. Shares would be sold under the Trading Plan in the open market at certain minimum price thresholds, which may or may not be achieved.  There is no assurance that any or all of the shares in his Trading Plan will, in fact, be sold. Mr. Chibib will have no control over the timing of the stock sales under his Trading Plan. His Trading Plan is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2012.

Mr. Chibib has entered into the Trading Plan for personal portfolio diversification.

Mr. Aviles’ Trading Plan will provide for the sale of up to 49% of his total present Company holdings, beginning 3 business days after the Company announces its results for the 2nd quarter of Fiscal Year 2012. Such announcement is expected during the first week of May, 2012. Shares would be sold under the Trading Plan in the open market at certain minimum price thresholds, which may or may not be achieved. There is no assurance that any or all of the shares in his Trading Plan will, in fact, be sold. Mr. Aviles will have no control over the timing of the stock sales under his Trading Plan. His Trading Plan will be scheduled to expire on May 5, 2013.

Mr. Aviles has entered into the Trading Plan for personal portfolio diversification.
