                  FAIRNESS OPINIONS 

A fairness opinion is a statement from a financial expert that a transaction
is "fair from a financial point of view" to certain parties at interest. In theory,
such opinions should protect minority shareholders who are diffuse and
cannot have a direct voice in transactions.

The need for a fairness opinion arises where actual or potential conflicts of
interest exist among parties involved in a transaction. A fairness opinion
attempts to provide a posture maintaining armís length standards where they
do not otherwise exist.
