We experienced delays in closing our books and records for our Caledon, South Africa subsidiary due to turnover of key accounting personnel late in 2004. As reported in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 2, 2005, we appointed Grant Thornton LLP as the independent auditor of our South African subsidiary, which is a significant subsidiary as defined in Rule 1-02 of Regulation S-X. As a result of our delays in closing the accounting books for this subsidiary, we have been unable to provide, on a timely basis, all of the information necessary for our independent auditors to complete the audit of our consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2004.

If the answer is no, identify report(s).
[X] Yes [ ] 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 or portion thereof?
[X] Yes [ ] No

If so: attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

Net earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2004 are currently expected to be $0.36, compared to $0.24 for the same period in 2003. The increase in net earnings is primarily due to a recovery of receivables in our South African subsidiary that were written off in 2002, and a lower effective income tax rate for our international operations.
