Liquidity Situation

As previously disclosed, in order to fund the Company's cash requirements over the short term, the Company requires certain consents from the Lenders under its amended and restated facilities agreement and to date, the Company has received these consents. The Company expects that similar consents from the Lenders will be required over the upcoming months. The withholding of such consents by the Lenders during this period will have a material adverse impact on the Company's ability to fund its operations and is therefore likely to have a material adverse impact on all stakeholders.
