Christmann IV, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President, in his capacity as principal executive officer, and Stephen J.

Based on that evaluation and as of the date of that evaluation, these officers concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective, providing effective means to ensure that the information we are required to disclose under applicable laws and regulations is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms and accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. We made no changes in internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ending December 31, 2015, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. We periodically review the design and effectiveness of our disclosure controls, including compliance with various laws and regulations that apply to our operations both inside and outside the United States.
