On April 28, 2008, the Company entered an amendment (the Amendment) to its Loan Agreement and related Revolving Note (collectively, the Credit Facility) with U.S. Bank National Association (the Bank). The Amendment extended the maturity date to November 15, 2009, increased the facility for letters of credit to $15 million, and furthermore allowed for letters of credit of up to $3 million to have an expiration date of no later than November 15, 2010.
