The cash dividend being announced today represents the first $0.04 cash dividend being paid by the Company since the adoption of the dividend policy. Although there can be no assurance, the Company anticipates that it will pay another special cash dividend in January 2009 similar to the special cash dividends the Company has paid in January of the prior two years.

Murray S. Cohen, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board, stated, "This special $0.04 cash dividend underscores the Board's confidence in our financial position and demonstrates our commitment to shareholder interests. We are especially pleased that our continued profitability and cash position has enabled this additional return to our shareholders."
