                                     PART II
                             RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)

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)

             | (a)  The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of
             |      this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable
             |      effort or expense;
             | (b)  The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition
             |      report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR, or
  |X|        |      Form N-CSR, 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 subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or
             |      portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth

                                    PART III

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

The Registrant's Quarterly Report on Form 10-QSB could not be timely filed
because the auditors have not had sufficient time to complete their review
process. We fully expect to file the final Form 10-QSB before the time permitted
by this extension.

                                     PART IV

      the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer

(3)   Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
      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?                                                                        |_| Yes |X| No
