As previously announced, the Company's Board of Directors has appointed a Special Committee of independent directors to conduct a review of the Company's historical practices for stock option grants and accounting for option grants. The Company has announced that it has reached a preliminary conclusion that the appropriate measurement dates for financial accounting purposes of certain stock option grants differ from the recorded grant dates of those awards, and that it expects to restate its prior financial statements. As a result of the on-going investigation and the expected restatement of prior results, the Company is unable to provide detailed GAAP or non-GAAP financial statements for the quarters ended December 31, 2006, October 1, 2006, or the year ended July 2, 2006. The Special Committee has not yet completed its review of historical stock option grant practices. The Company intends to file its report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 2, 2006 and its reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended December 31, 2006 and October 1, 2006 as soon as practicable following the completion of the review.

The Company received a written notification from the staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel has granted the Company's request for continued listing on The Nasdaq Stock Market, subject to the condition that the Company file the Form 10-Qs and Form 10-K by March 21, 2007. The Company is seeking an additional extension of time through the appeal process in the event that it is not able to file its reports with the SEC by the specified date.
