GENERAL
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (all of which consisted of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012.
 
The balance sheet at December 31, 2011 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.
 
For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements:
 
Accounting Standards Update 2011-12, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05.  The amendments to the Codification in this ASU defer the presentation of reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income on the components of net income and other comprehensive income for all periods presented.  This ASU supersedes certain presentation requirements in ASU No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income, discussed below, so that entities will not be required to comply with the presentation requirements in ASU No. 2011-05 that ASU No. 2011-12 is deferring.  While the presentation requirements are being re-deliberated, entities are required to continue to report reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income consistent with the presentation requirements in effect before ASU No. 2011-05.  The amendments to this ASU are effective at the same time as the amendments in ASU No. 2011-05.  The Company adopted these provisions in the first quarter of 2012 and is reporting reclassification adjustments with presentation requirements in effect before ASU 2011-05. Adoption of these provisions did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
ASU 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220):  Presentation of Comprehensive Income. The amendments to the Codification in this ASU allow an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This ASU eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments to the Codification in the ASU do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.  The amendments are to be applied retrospectively and are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011.  The Company has adopted these provisions in the first quarter of 2012 and has presented a separate statement of comprehensive income consecutively after the statement showing net income in the accompanying financial statements. Adoption of these provisions did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted:
 
Accounting Standards Update 2011-11, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities.  The amendments to the Codification in this ASU are part of an ongoing effort to bring congruence between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. The amendments in this ASU require an entity to disclose information about derivatives that are subject to a legally enforceable netting arrangement with the same party where rights of set-off are only available in the event of default or bankruptcy and can be presented as a single net amount in the statement of financial position.  The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods, with the required disclosures being provided retrospectively for all comparative periods presented.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption of these provisions in the first quarter of 2013.

EARNINGS PER SHARE
 
Basic and diluted earnings per share are computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the respective periods.  The basic and diluted calculations differ as a result of the dilutive effect of stock options and time lapse restricted shares included in diluted earnings per share, but excluded from basic earnings per share. In addition, the Company has periodically issued share-based payment awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends and are therefore considered participating securities.  A reconciliation of weighted average shares outstanding along with the earnings per share attributable to restricted shares of common stock (participating securities) is as follows:

MARKETABLE SECURITIES
 
Marine Products maintains investments held with a large, well-capitalized financial institution.  Management determines the appropriate classification of debt securities at the time of purchase and reevaluates such designations as of each balance sheet date.  Debt securities are classified as available-for-sale because the Company does not have the intent to hold the securities to maturity. Available-for-sale securities are stated at their fair values, with the unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity.  The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method.  Realized gains and losses, declines in value judged to be other than temporary, interest and dividends on available-for-sale securities are included in interest income.

Repurchase Obligations
 
The Company is a party to various agreements with third party lenders that provide floor plan financing to qualifying dealers whereby the Company guarantees varying amounts of debt on boats in dealer inventory.  The Company’s obligation under these guarantees becomes effective in the case of a default under the financing arrangement between the dealer and the third party lender.  The agreements provide for the return of repossessed boats to the Company in new and unused condition subject to normal wear and tear as defined, in exchange for the Company’s assumption of specified percentages of the debt obligation on those boats, up to certain contractually determined dollar limits by lender. The Company became contractually obligated to repurchase inventory of approximately $0.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2011 all of which were redistributed among existing and replacement dealers. There were no repurchases of inventory under contractual agreements during the three months ended March 31, 2012.
 
Management continues to monitor the risk of additional defaults and resulting repurchase obligations based in part on information provided by the third-party floor plan lenders and will adjust the guarantee liability at the end of each reporting period based on information reasonably available at that time.
 
The Company currently has an agreement with one of the floor plan lenders whereby the contractual repurchase limit is to not exceed 15 percent of the amount of the average net receivables financed by the floor plan lender for dealers during the prior 12 month period.  The Company has contractual repurchase agreements with additional lenders with an aggregate maximum repurchase obligation of approximately $5.2 million with various expiration and cancellation terms of less than one year, for an aggregate repurchase obligation with all floor plan financing institutions of approximately $9.7 million as of March 31, 2012.

INCOME TAXES
 
The Company determines its periodic income tax provision (benefit) based upon the current period income and the annual estimated tax rate for the Company adjusted for any change to prior year estimates. The estimated tax rate is revised, if necessary, as of the end of each successive interim period during the fiscal year to the Company’s current annual estimated tax rate.
 
For the first quarter of 2012, the income tax provision reflects an effective tax rate of 28.8 percent, compared to an effective tax rate of 20.7 percent for the comparable period in the prior year.  The change in the effective rate was due primarily to the relationship of our annual estimated pretax income to permanent differences between book and taxable income including tax-exempt interest earned on municipal securities.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
 
The various inputs used to measure assets at fair value establish a hierarchy that distinguishes between assumptions based on market data (observable inputs) and the Company’s assumptions (unobservable inputs).  The hierarchy consists of three broad levels as follows:
1.           Level 1 – Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
2.           Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
3.           Level 3 – Unobservable inputs developed using the Company’s estimates and assumptions, which reflect those that market participants would use.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Marine Products Corporation, through our wholly owned subsidiaries Chaparral and Robalo, is a leading manufacturer of recreational fiberglass powerboats. Our sales and profits are generated by selling the products that we manufacture to a network of independent dealers who in turn sell the products to retail customers. These dealers are located throughout the continental United States and in several international markets.  Many of these dealers finance their inventory through third-party floorplan lenders, who pay Marine Products generally within seven to 10 days after delivery of the products to the dealers.
 
The discussion on business and financial strategies of the Company set forth under the heading “Overview” in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 is incorporated herein by reference.  There have been no significant changes in the strategies since year-end.
 
In implementing these strategies and attempting to optimize our financial returns, management closely monitors dealer orders and inventories, the production mix and profitability of its various models, and indications of near term demand such as consumer confidence, interest rates, fuel costs, dealer orders placed at our annual dealer conferences, and retail attendance and orders at annual winter boat show exhibitions.  We also consider trends related to certain key financial and other data, including our market share, unit sales of our products, average selling price per unit, and gross profit margins, among others, as indicators of the success of our strategies.  Marine Products’ financial results are affected by consumer confidence — because pleasure boating is a discretionary expenditure, interest rates and credit availability — because many retail customers finance the purchase of their boats, and other socioeconomic and environmental factors such as availability of leisure time, consumer preferences, demographics and the weather.
 
Our unit production and sales were higher during the first quarter of 2012 compared to both the first quarter of 2011 and the fourth quarter of 2011.  We operated at higher production levels during the first quarter of 2012 because of strong dealer demand for our new entry-level Chaparral and Robalo models.  In addition, industry indicators such as attendance at the 2012 winter boat shows, industry reports regarding 2012 retail boat sales, and the increased availability of floorplan financing for our dealers, have given us a favorable outlook for the near-term selling environment for our products.
 
Operating income increased compared to the prior year due to higher gross profit, which was the result of higher unit sales and higher net sales in spite of a decrease in the overall average selling price that was offset by increased sales of the recently introduced smaller boat models.  Dealer inventories are higher at March 31, 2012 than both this time last year and at December 31, 2011.  Our dealer inventories are higher because of our increased production in response to the improved retail demand during the 2012 selling season as well as our belief that the boating industry is improving significantly.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
OUTLOOK
 
The discussion on the outlook for 2012 is incorporated herein by reference from the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.
 
Management believes that net sales will increase slightly in 2012 compared to 2011 and that our operating results will improve as well.  This belief is based on strong attendance and sales at the boating industry’s 2012 winter boat shows, favorable dealer reception to our new models and strong order volume from those dealers, and industry reports that retail boat sales during the first quarter of 2012 have increased.  Our dealer inventories are higher at the end of the first quarter of 2012 than at the end of the first quarter and fourth quarter of 2011.  Our backlog is higher than at the end of the first quarter of 2011, due to significantly higher dealer orders for our value-priced Chaparral H2O models and Robalo 180 and 200 outboard sport fishing boats. Industry sources indicate that our market share in the small sterndrive market increased at the end of 2011, and we believe that this increase was due to higher sales volumes of these new smaller models.  Although these models carry lower average selling prices than our other Chaparral and Robalo models, we  believe these sales will increase consolidated net sales, gross profit, operating income, and net income during the remainder of 2012, by increasing unit sales and spreading our fixed production costs over higher production volume.
 
In general, we believe that retail boat sales are beginning to increase following the recession and financial crisis.  However, we also believe that retail sales increases will be modest due to a slow recovery from the recession, continued high unemployment, depressed real estate values and continued weak consumer confidence. We believe that these factors tend to discourage consumers from purchasing large discretionary goods such as pleasure boats.  In addition, we believe that the rise in fuel prices that occurred during the first quarter of 2012 run the risk of dampening retail sales later in the selling season although prices have recently moderated.  Over the long term, the lower actual and expected returns on financial assets may have long-term effects on consumer behavior with regard to pleasure boating. Because of these lower returns, consumers may have less money for large discretionary purchase such as recreational boats because of greater need for retirement savings. For a number of years, Marine Products as well as other manufacturers have been improving their customer service capabilities, marketing strategies and sales promotions in order to attract more consumers to recreational boating as well as improve consumers’ boating experiences. In addition, the recreational boating industry conducts a promotional program which involves advertising and consumer targeting efforts, as well as other activities designed to increase the potential consumer market for pleasure boats. Many manufacturers, including Marine Products, are participating in this program. Management believes that these efforts will benefit the industry and Marine Products. As in past years, Marine Products enhanced the design of a number of boats for the 2012 model year which began on July 1, 2011, and as discussed above, began producing new models of both Chaparrals and Robalos.  During the first quarter of 2012 we generated higher unit and net sales due to the successful design, manufacturing and marketing of these models. We believe that these smaller, entry-level models appeal to consumers who are seeking a quality product at a lower price point than some of our larger models with more features and options. In addition, we believe that these new Chaparral and Robalo models allow us to achieve a number of our objectives related to improved manufacturing cost efficiencies, meeting dealer requests for entry-level models and increasing retail market share.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
Our financial results in 2012 will depend on a number of factors, including interest rates, consumer confidence, the availability of credit to our dealers and consumers, fuel costs, the continued acceptance of our new products in the recreational boating market, our ability to compete in the competitive pleasure boating industry, and the costs of certain of our raw materials and key components.

THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2012 COMPARED TO THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2011
 
Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased $10.7 million or 39.4 percent compared to the comparable period in 2011. The change in net sales was due primarily to a 54.1 percent increase in the number of boats sold partially offset by an 11.3 percent decrease in the average gross selling price per boat.  Unit sales increased dramatically due to sales of our recently introduced Chaparral H2O Sport and Fish & Ski Boats, as well as our Robalo 180 and 200 outboard sport fishing boat.  The increased sales of these smaller models also caused the decrease in overall average selling prices during the quarter as compared to the first quarter of 2011.  In the first quarter of 2012, sales outside of the United States accounted for 22.5 percent of net sales compared to 18.1 percent of net sales in the prior year first quarter.  Increases of 73.5 percent in international sales and 31.9 percent in domestic sales during the quarter compared to the prior year contributed to the consolidated net sales increase quantified above.  The majority of the increase in international sales was due to increased sales in Canada due to increase in the number of dealers and improvement in the overall economy while most other international markets continue to struggle.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
Cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $30.8 million compared to $22.7 million for the comparable period in 2011, an increase of $8.1 million or 35.7 percent.  Cost of goods sold, as a percentage of net sales, decreased primarily due to production efficiencies related to higher production volumes during the first quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $4.9 million compared to $3.9 million for the comparable period in 2011, an increase of $1.0 million or 28.2 percent. This increase was due to expenses that vary with sales and profitability, such as incentive compensation and sales commissions, as well as increased advertising costs.  Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of net sales decreased primarily due to leverage of fixed costs over higher activity levels. Warranty expense was 1.6 percent of net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to 2.1 percent in the prior year quarter primarily due to higher net sales.
 
Operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased $1.5 million compared to the comparable period in 2011 due to increased sales and gross profit in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year quarter, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses.
 
Interest income was $239 thousand during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and $236 thousand for the comparable period in 2011.  The slight increase was primarily due to higher market returns on the Company’s debt investments during the period compared to the prior year coupled with an increase in the average investment balance compared to the prior year.
 
Income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $660 thousand compared to $174 thousand for the comparable period in 2011.  The income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2012 reflects an effective tax rate of 28.8 percent compared to an effective tax rate of 20.7 percent for the prior year.  The change in the effective rate was due primarily to the relationship of our annual estimated pretax income to permanent differences between book and taxable income including primarily tax-exempt interest earned on municipal securities.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
Cash Flows
 
The Company’s cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2012 were $6.8 million.  In addition, the aggregate of short-term and long-term marketable securities were $53.1 million at March 31, 2012 compared to $54.1 million at December 31, 2011.  The following table sets forth the cash flows for the applicable periods:

Net cash used for financing activities
  $ (979 )   $ (368 )
 
Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased approximately $2.0 million compared to the comparable period in 2011.  This increase is primarily due to a significant increase in net income during the first three months of 2012 partially offset by higher working capital requirements during 2012 consistent with increased production volumes.
 
Cash provided by (used for) investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased approximately $8.0 million compared to the comparable period in 2011 due to higher sales of marketable securities in the current period offset by decreased purchases coupled with lower maturities of marketable securities.
 
Cash used for financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 increased approximately $611 thousand primarily due to the reinstatement and payment of dividends and slightly higher cost of stock repurchases associated with the vesting and release of restricted stock offset by higher excess tax benefits for share-based payments.
 
Financial Condition and Liquidity
 
The Company believes that the liquidity provided by existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, its overall strong capitalization and cash generated by operations will provide sufficient capital to meet the Company’s requirements for at least the next twelve months.  The Company’s decisions about the amount of cash to be used for investing and financing purposes are influenced by its capital position and the expected amount of cash to be provided by operations.

OFF BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
 
To assist dealers in obtaining financing for the purchase of its boats for inventory, the Company has entered into agreements with various third-party floor plan lenders whereby the Company guarantees varying amounts of debt for qualifying dealers on boats in inventory. The Company’s obligation under these guarantees becomes effective in the case of a default under the financing arrangement between the dealer and the third-party lender.  The agreements provide for the return of all repossessed boats to the Company in a new and unused condition as defined, in exchange for the Company’s assumption of specified percentages of the debt obligation on those boats, up to certain contractually determined dollar limits which vary by lender.  The Company became contractually obligated to repurchase inventory of approximately $0.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2011 all of which were redistributed among existing and replacement dealers. There were no repurchases of inventory under contractual agreements during the three months ended March 31, 2012.
 
Management continues to monitor the risk of additional defaults and resulting repurchase obligations based in part on information provided by the third-party floor plan lenders and will adjust the guarantee liability at the end of each reporting period based on information reasonably available at that time.

The market prices of certain material and component costs used in manufacturing the Company’s products, especially resins that are made with hydrocarbon feedstocks, copper and stainless steel, have been extremely volatile since the third and fourth quarters of 2008.   The prices of these commodities fell dramatically due to the global recession and financial crisis in late 2008.  During 2009, these commodity prices began to rise, and continued to rise throughout 2011.  By the end of 2011, the prices of some of these commodities, such as copper, were higher than the peak market prices reached during 2008.  Prices of these commodities have moderated during the first quarter of 2012, but are still high by historical standards.  These high, volatile commodity prices have resulted in higher materials costs in 2012 and may continue to cause higher materials costs in the future.  We have instituted price increases to our dealers to compensate for these cost increases, but these price increases have not been enough to compensate fully for the increases in commodity costs.  Due to the intense competition in our business, we do not believe that we will be able to institute sufficient price increases to our dealers to compensate for these increased materials costs.  It is likely that any continued increases in commodity costs would negatively impact the Company’s operating results.
 
New boat buyers typically finance their purchases.  Higher inflation typically results in higher interest rates that could translate into an increased cost of boat ownership. Prospective buyers may choose to forego or delay their purchases or buy a less expensive boat in the event that interest rates rise or credit is not available to finance boat purchase.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
Certain statements made in this report that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, the expected effect of recent accounting pronouncements on the Company’s consolidated financial statements; the Company’s estimate for warranty accruals; the Company’s belief that there exists a favorable outlook for the near-term selling environment for our products; the Company’s belief that the boating industry is improving significantly; management’s belief that net sales will increase slightly in 2012 compared to 2011 and that the Company’s operating results will improve as well; the Company’s belief that sales of the Company’s new models will increase consolidated net sales, gross profit, operating income and net income during the remainder of 2012; the Company’s belief that retail  boat sales are beginning to increase following the recession and financial crisis; the Company’s belief that this increase in retail sales will be modest; the Company’s belief that the rise in fuel prices during the first quarter of 2012 may dampen sales later in 2012; the financial crisis may have long term effects on consumer behavior with regard to pleasure boating; the Company’s belief that the recreational boating industry promotional program will benefit the industry and Marine Products; the Company’s belief that the Chaparral H2O model will appeal to consumers who are seeking a quality product at a lower price point than some of the Company’s larger models; the Company’s belief that the new Chaparral model will allow the Company to achieve a number of its objectives related to manufacturing efficiencies, dealer requests and retail market share; the Company’s belief that its liquidity, capitalization and cash expected to be generated from operations, will provide sufficient capital to meet the Company’s requirements for at least the next twelve months; the Company’s expectations about capital expenditures during 2012; the Company’s expectation about contributions to its pension plan in 2012; the Company’s belief that the prices of many commodities used as raw materials for its manufacturing processes may continue to cause the Company to incur higher material costs in the future; the Company’s  belief that it will not be able to institute sufficient price increases to compensate for these increased material costs; the Company’s belief that it is likely that these increased prices will negatively impact the Company’s operating results; the Company’s expectation regarding market risk of its investment portfolio; and the Company’s expectations about the effect of litigation on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.  The words “may,” “should,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “project,” “estimate,” and similar expressions used in this document that do not relate to historical facts are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by our management in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes to be appropriate. We caution you that such statements are only predictions and not guarantees of future performance and that actual results, developments and business decisions may differ from those envisioned by the forward-looking statements.  Risk factors that could cause such future events not to occur as expected include the following: economic conditions, unavailability of credit and possible decreases in the level of consumer confidence impacting discretionary spending, business interruptions due to adverse weather conditions, increased interest rates, unanticipated changes in consumer demand and preferences, deterioration in the quality of Marine Products’ network of independent boat dealers or availability of financing of their inventory, our ability to insulate financial results against increasing commodity prices, the impact of rising gasoline prices and a weak housing market on consumer demand for our products, competition from other boat manufacturers and dealers, and insurance companies that insure a number of Marine Products’ marketable securities have been downgraded, which may cause volatility in the market price of Marine Products’ marketable securities. Additional discussion of factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from management’s projections, forecasts, estimates and expectations is contained in Marine Products’ Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2011.  The Company does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
Marine Products does not utilize financial instruments for trading purposes and, as of March 31, 2012, did not hold derivative financial instruments that could expose the Company to significant market risk.  Also, as of March 31, 2012, the Company’s investment portfolio, totaling approximately $53.1 million and comprised primarily of municipal and corporate debt securities, is subject to interest rate risk exposure. This risk is managed through conservative policies to invest in high-quality obligations that are both short-term and long-term in nature.  Because Marine Products’ investment portfolio mix has been allocated towards securities with similar term maturities compared to the end of fiscal year 2011, the risk of material market value fluctuations is not expected to be significantly different from the end of fiscal year 2011 and the Company currently expects no such changes through the remainder of the current year.
 
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures - The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
As of the end of the period covered by this report, March 31, 2012 (the “Evaluation Date”), the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a – 15(e)). Based upon this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a – 15(e)) were effective at a reasonable assurance level as of the Evaluation Date.
 
Changes in internal control over financial reporting - Management’s evaluation of changes in internal control did not identify any changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the Company’s most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
