of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules thereunder;

         (2) do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the Reporting
Person which may be necessary or desirable to complete and execute any such Form
3, 4 or 5, complete and execute any amendment or amendments thereto, and timely
file such form with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and any
stock exchange or similar authority; and

         (3) take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with the
foregoing which, in the opinion of such attorney-in-fact, may be of benefit to,
in the best interest of, or legally required by, the Reporting Person, it being
