with Keith to improve our investor relations processes, and we wish him

promotion to become our new Chief Financial Officer. Keith's extensive
knowledge of our financial, audit and business operations, processes and
systems (gained through his approximately 15 years of service to our
Company) makes him well qualified to serve as our new CFO. Additionally,
Keith helped us to develop CSS' five strategic pillars for achievement
of our objective to grow profitable sales and earnings, while improving
