In accordance with undertakings made by the Company in the Registration Statements, if any, to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities that remain unsold at the termination of the offerings, effective upon filing of these Post-Effective Amendments, the Company hereby removes from registration all of such securities of the Company registered but unsold under the Registration Statements, if any, as of the date hereof.
