The Company also announced that the closing of the public offering and the closing of the option to purchase additional common units took place simultaneously today.

Statements that are predictive in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or that include words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates," "projects," "forecasts," "may," "should" and similar expressions are forward-looking statements.
