Regarding a putative class action lawsuit initially filed against us in June 2012, on November 5, 2012, we received an
amended complaint against us and certain of our senior officers. We continue to believe that there is no basis for the
lawsuit, and we intend to defend ourselves vigorously.

Per the first entry, defendants' motion to dismiss is due on February 1. Defense counsel is Paul Weiss.
