If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed.  (Check box if appropriate)

S           (a)  The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

S           (b)  The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q, or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

£           (c)  The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.




State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

The Company is in the process of preparing and reviewing the audited financial statements and other information for its Form 10-K report for the year ended March 31, 2010, and does not expect the report will be finalized for filing by the prescribed due date.  The Company needs additional time to complete the preparation of its audited financial statements, including determining, in consultation with its independent registered accountants, the valuation of certain assets and timing of the recognition of certain income related to the Company's New Market Tax Credits allocations, and to have the report reviewed by its Board of Directors, independent registered accountants and legal counsel.

S Yes           £ No

(3)  Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operation from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
S Yes           £ No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

The Company cannot provide a reasonable estimate of the results because of the complexity of completing its audited financial statements, including the valuation of certain material assets and the timing of the recognition of certain income related to the Company's New Market Tax Credits allocations.
