(i)   On November 13, 2002, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ('PwC") resigned as the
      Company's independent accountants and advised the Company that its 2001
      annual financial statements can no longer be relied upon due to an error
      (see Exhibit 16 filed herein).

(ii)  PwC's reports on our financial statements for the past two fiscal years
      did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion nor were
      they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting
      principle except that PwC's opinion on our 2001 financial statements
      included an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt regarding
      our ability to continue as a going concern.

(iii) In connection with its audits for the two most recent fiscal years and
      through November 13, 2002, there have been no disagreements with PwC on
      any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement
      disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements if not
      resolved to the satisfaction of PwC would have caused them to make
      reference thereto in their report on the financial statements for such

(iv)  During the two most recent fiscal years and through November 13, 2002, PwC
      has advised management and the audit committee that it had identified one
      material control weakness and two reportable conditions regarding the
      Company's internal accounting controls.

      Material Control Weakness: During the course of PwC's reviews and year-end
      audit, PwC noted that the Company did not establish policies and
      procedures to ensure that sufficient competent personnel are recruited
      into, and retained within, the finance function, sufficiently efficient to
      ensure the ongoing strengthening of internal accounting controls and
      processes. The existing resources of the finance function are sufficient
      to deal with day-to-day operations, however, the position of corporate
      controller changed on several occasions during the fiscal year which
      resulted in a lack of continuity and supervision of the finance function.
      In addition, the Company did not have a Chief Financial Officer for
      approximately half of the year. As a result, the Company has been unable
      to maintain and improve the control environment during the year, and
      provide us with requested information and explanations on a timely basis.
      In addition, in certain instances, the accounting staff did not have the
      necessary knowledge to carry-out their duties in an efficient manner.

      First Reportable Conditions: PwC reported that, the company did not have a
      formal document retention policy. Which was further compounded by the high
      turnover of employees in the accounting department and subsequent lack of
      supervision. As a result, accounting records and documents were not
      readily available, which created inefficiencies for management and lack of
      support for assertions in its financial statements. This was particularly
      relevant in relation to areas such as goodwill amortization where records
      have been continually re-created on a quarterly basis

      Second Reportable Condition: During the course of the audit fieldwork, PwC
      noted that the quality of the Company's accounting records could be
      significantly improved. Although basic records appeared to have improved,
      since the prior year, PwC noted old, unsupported account balances and a
      large numbers of reconciling items or reconciling items, which had not
      been appropriately adjusted in the Company's general ledger. This resulted
      in recording a substantial number of adjustments, some of which were
      material, during the audit.

      We have authorized PwC to respond fully to the inquiries of any successor
      independent accountants concerning this matter.

(v)   The Registrant has requested that PwC furnish it with a letter addressed
      to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A
      copy of such letter, dated November 26, 2002, is filed as Exhibit 16 to
      this Form 8-K.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
