The Company issued a press release dated March 14, 2019, which was furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to its Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 15, 2019, reporting certain unaudited 2018 fourth quarter and year-end financial results.  The Company currently expects that the results of operations presented in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 will be consistent with the results of operations reported in such press release, except that certain of its limited liability investments will now be accounted for on a consolidated basis rather than using the equity method of accounting.  The Company does not believe any changes to its results of operations from this change in accounting for certain of its limited liability investments will be material.
