the undersigned  may be  required to  file in  connection with the undersigned's
ownership, acquisition, or disposition of securities of the Company;

        (2) do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the undersigned
which may be necessary or desirable to complete and execute any such Form 3,  4,
or 5, or  other form or  report, and timely  file such form  or report with  the
United  States  Securities  and Exchange  Commission and  any stock  exchange or
similar authority; and

        (3) take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with  the
foregoing which, in the opinion of such attorney-in- fact, may be of benefit to,
in the  best interest  of, or  legally required  by, the  undersigned, it  being
understood that the documents executed by such attorney-in-fact on behalf of the
undersigned pursuant to the  Power of Attorney shall  be in such form  and shall
contain such terms and conditions  as such attorney-in-fact may approve  in such
attorney-in-fact's discretion.

        The undersigned hereby grants  to each such attorney-in-fact full  power
and  authority  to  do  and  perform any  and  every  act  and  thing whatsoever
requisite, necessary, or proper to be done in the exercise of any of the  rights
and  powers  herein  granted,  as  fully to  all  intents  and  purposes  as the
undersigned  might  or  could  do if  personally  present,  with  full power  of
substitution  or  revocation,  hereby ratifying  and  confirming  all that  such
attorney-in-fact, or  such attorney-in-fact's  substitute or  substitutes, shall
lawfully do or  cause to be  done by virtue  of this power  of attorney and  the
rights  and  powers  herein  granted.  The  undersigned  acknowledges  that  the
foregoing attorneys-in-fact, in serving in  such capacity at the request  of the
undersigned,  are  not  assuming,  nor  is  the  Company  assuming,  any  of the
undersigned's  responsibilities  to comply  with  Section 16  of  the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934.

        This Power of Attorney shall  remain in full force and effect  until the
undersigned is no longer required to file Forms 3, 4, and 5 with respect to  the
undersigned's holdings of and transactions in securities issued by the  Company,
unless earlier revoked by the undersigned  in a signed writing delivered to  the
foregoing attorneys-in-fact.

        IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has caused this Power of Attorney to
be executed as of this 19th day of April 2012.
