(1)  Assumes conversion of all of the holder's notes at a conversion price of
     8.2723 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount at maturity of
     the notes. This conversion price, however, will be subject to adjustment as

     238,095,339 shares of common stock outstanding as of November 22, 2000. In
     calculating this amount, we treated as outstanding the number of shares of
     common stock issuable upon conversion of all of that particular holder's

     common stock other than the common stock issuable upon conversion of the
