PART II -- RULES 12B-25(b) AND (c)

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should
be completed. (Check box if appropriate)

      |    (a)      The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of
      |             this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable
      |             effort or expense;
[X]   |    (b)      The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition
      |             report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or
      |             portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth
      |             calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the
      |             subject quarterly report of transition report on Form 10-Q,
      |             or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth
      |             calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
      |    (c)      The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule
      |             12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.



State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,
N-SAR or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed in the
prescribed period.

         The Registrant, in preparing the Forms 5500 for its plans as well as
for the newly acquired plan, realized that due to a transaction that took place
on December 14, 2001, the Registrant acquired a plan that required the
Registrant's plan administrator to file a Form 11-K for the 2002 Plan Year. The
Registrant did not realize the Form 11-K filing requirement until recently and
consequently the audited financial statements will not be completed and ready
for timely filing without unreasonable effort and expense.

     Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act
     of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter  period that the
     registrant  was  required to file such  report(s)  has been  filed?  If the
     answer is no, identify report(s). Yes [x]          No [ ]

(3)  Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from
     the corresponding  period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
     earnings  statements  to be  included  in the  subject  report  of  portion

                                       Yes  [ ]         No [x]

     estimate of the results cannot be made.
