Additionally, the Company's management, after an analysis of the trading volume and shareholdings of the holders of the Company's common stock, believes that the Company's common stock may be subject to automated trading/robotrading. Automated trading or robotrading is a form of stock trading where investors, through automated trading platforms use algorithms and/or other preset trading rules to buy and sell securities automatically, sometimes within milliseconds, often times based solely on perceived trading trends in an issuer's securities. The Company's management believes that such automated trading/robotrading is creating artificial downward pressure on the Company's common stock and that investors should be made aware of such risks.
