Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

We are extending the expiration date of our common share purchase warrants (NYSE: BZWS) that expire on June 18, 2011. The June 18 expiration date was established in the Warrant Agreement dated June 19, 2007. Because June 18 is a Saturday, we are extending the warrant expiration date and time until 5:00 p.m. New York time on Monday, June 20, 2011. Each warrant may be exercised to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $7.50.

We will also permit exercises of warrants to be accepted by the warrant agent through a notice of guaranteed delivery so trading in our warrants can continue until the close of the market on Monday, June 20, 2011, with normal three-day settlements. A warrant holder can obtain further information on exercising warrants by contacting his or her broker or Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, our transfer agent and warrant agent. Brokers are encouraged to contact Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company well before the expiration date to confirm the procedures for exercising warrants and payment of exercise prices.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrants have duly caused this report to be signed on their behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
