Under the proposed agreement, Vigor intends to commence a tender offer by no later than December 30, 2010 for all the outstanding shares for $22.27 per share in cash.

Todd’s directors and officers and certain other stockholders who own an aggregate of approximately 15.3% of Todd’s outstanding stock have entered into agreements pursuant to which they have agreed to tender their shares in the tender offer.
