The audit reports of ParenteBeard LLC on the consolidated financial statements of the Company for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. During the two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and through the subsequent interim period preceding August 12, 2013, there were: (1) no disagreements between the Company and ParenteBeard LLC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of ParenteBeard LLC would have caused them to make reference thereto in their reports on the Company's financial statements for such years, and (2) no reportable events within the meaning set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company has provided ParenteBeard LLC a copy of the disclosures in this Form 8-K and has requested that ParenteBeard LLC furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the Company's statements in this Item 4.01. A copy of the letter dated August 16, 2013 is filed as Exhibit 16.0 to this Form 8-K.

(2) the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements, and BDO USA, LLP did not provide any written report or oral advice that BDO USA, LLP concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any such accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (3) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement with ParenteBeard LLC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure or the subject of a reportable event.
