AGAIN, WE WANT TO EMPHASIZE THAT THESE ARE THE ONLY AREAS AFFECTED BY THIS ANNOUNCEMENT

Most important, we want to emphasize to all the affected people that this decision is in no way a reflection on their performance in any of these areas.

We greatly appreciate what person has contributed to the company over many years of service, and for this reason, we will meet with each person to determine if they are interested in exploring an opportunity to relocate to Bowling Green as part of this restructure. Supervisors and managers will discuss this with each individual.

Those people who cannot make the move to Bowling Green, and are needed to assist in the transition of responsibilities, will be provided a 60 day notice of your anticipated last day of work in accordance with WARN (Workforce Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act)

We thank all employees for their time and cooperation during this transition.
