Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
On July 28, 2010, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Registrant approved the appointment of McGladrey & Pullen (“M&P”) as the Registrant’s independent registered accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2010. In deciding to select M&P, the Audit Committee reviewed auditor independence issues and existing commercial relationships with M&P and concluded that M&P has no commercial relationship with the Registrant that would impair its independence. The Registrant did not engage M&P in any prior consultations during the Registrant’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 or its subsequent period through the date of the filing of this current report on Form 8-K regarding either: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Registrant’s consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report was provided to the Registrant nor oral advice was provided that M&P concluded was an important factor considered by the Registrant in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of either a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K) or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, hereunto duly authorized.
