Sec Cooperation Agreements

Since December 31, 2003, the parent company has provided the company, pursuant to the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, with a complete copy of each filing of the parent company with the SEC. All documents that must be submitted as exhibitions for parent SEC Filings have been submitted as well. The parent company has no essential contracts, with the exception of the agreements listed in the disclosure plan for the parent companies and the agreements with its option holders, which are fully in force. The parent company is not largely behind such option agreements. From their respective data, Parent SEC Filings, as well as each of such reports, proxy statements, registration statements, forms or other documents filed by Parent with the SEC after the date of this agreement and before the balance date, including but not limited to any financial reports or schedules contained therein, did not contain or do not make a false statement about a material fact, to indicate an essential fact to be included therein or if it is necessary not to mislead the statements made therein, having regard to the circumstances in which they were made. . . .
