Since, in the view of the Bank and Bankers Trust New York Corporation, such voting power is merely a residual power based upon the occurrence of an unlikely contingency and is not a sole or shared power to vote the securities, the Bank and Bankers Trust New York Corporation hereby disclaim beneficial ownership of such securities.
