reasonable prices and other investment opportunities that may be available to 
the Fidelity Funds and Accounts. 
 
	Fidelity and FMTC, respectively, intend to review continuously the 
equity position of the Fidelity Funds and Accounts in the Company.  Depending 
upon future evaluations of the business prospects of the Company and upon 
other developments, including, but not limited to, general economic and 
business conditions and money market and stock market conditions, Fidelity may 
determine to cease making additional purchases of Shares or to increase or 
decrease the equity interest in the Company by acquiring additional Shares, or 
by disposing of all or a portion of the Shares. 
 
	Neither Fidelity nor FMTC has any present plan or proposal which relates 
to or would result in (i) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a
