President and a Director of the Board. Scott Howe was appointed as
the CEO and President on July 26, 2011. Also, CFO Christopher W.
Wolf resigned on June 1, 2011 and on January 11, 2012, he was

pervasive impact on its overall functioning, goals and investor
perception. It remains to be seen how the new management charts a
growth trajectory for the company.
