  Item 5.03   Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Changes in Fiscal Year

                (1)        Effective January 28, 2005, the Board of Directors of the Company amended and restated the Bylaws of the Company. The amendments modify a number of provisions to reflect current practices of the Company. For example, Article II, Section 11 was amended to provide that the Chair of the Board, rather than the President, or such Directors as he or she may designate, shall preside over all shareholder meetings. Similarly, Article III, Section 15 was amended to provide that the Board shall elect a Director to be Chair. The Chair, or in his or her absence the Chief Executive Officer, or another member elected by the Board, shall preside at all Board meetings. Such provision was also amended to provide for the election of an independent “Presiding Director” by the Board in the event that the Chair is not independent in accordance with the rules of any exchange upon which the securities of the Company are listed for trading. Article III, Section 13 was amended to rename certain committees of the Board to properly reflect the Company’s current practices. In addition, certain changes were made to the formal titles of certain officers. For example, reference to the election of a Chief Executive Officer has been added to Article IV, Section 1 and Article IV, Sections 4, 5 and 6 were amended to clarify the responsibilities of the Chief Executive Officer and President. Finally, certain grammatical revisions were made to the Bylaws which do not affect the substantive meaning of such provisions.


        A copy of the amended and restated Bylaws reflecting the changes described above are attached hereto as Exhibit A.
