Based upon and subject to the foregoing and upon our review of such matters of law as we have deemed necessary and appropriate to render our opinions as expressed herein, and subject to the assumptions, exceptions, limitations and qualifications set forth herein, it is our opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized for issuance and, when issued, delivered and paid for in accordance with the Underwriting Agreement and the resolutions of the Board and the Pricing Committee relating thereto, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable under the General Corporation Law.

The foregoing opinions are subject to the following exceptions, limitations and qualifications:

A.    We are admitted to practice law in the State of Delaware and do not hold ourselves out as being experts on the law of any other jurisdiction. The foregoing opinions are limited to the General Corporation Law currently in effect, and we have not considered and express no opinion on the effect of any other laws or the laws of any other state or jurisdiction, including state or federal laws relating to securities or other federal laws, or the rules and regulations of stock exchanges or of any other regulatory body. In addition, we have not considered and express no opinion as to the applicability of or any compliance with the Delaware Securities Act, 6 Del. C. § 73-101 et seq., or any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder.


B.    This opinion speaks only as of the date hereof, and we shall have no obligation to update this opinion in any respect after the date hereof, including with respect to changes in law occurring on or after the date hereof.

We consent to your filing this opinion as an exhibit to the Rule 462(b) Registration Statement and to reference our firm in the Rule 462(b) Registration Statement or related prospectus under the heading “Legal Matters.” In giving the foregoing consent, we do not thereby admit that we come within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder.
