On April 11, 2006, the Registrant entered into Indemnification Agreements with
each of its Directors. The Indemnification Agreements set forth the scope of

Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or ByLaws; Change in Fiscal

On April 6, 2006, the Board of Directors of the Registrant amended the

revises Article IV, Section 6 so as to clarify the Registrant's authority to
enter into indemnification agreements with any person whom the corporation has
the power to indemnify under applicable law. As amended, the By Laws authorize
indemnification agreements as may contain such provisions as the Board of
Directors may approve and as are not prohibited by law. A copy of the amended By
Laws is being filed as Exhibit 3(b).
