Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 2 does not modify any of the information previously reported on the Schedule 13D.

        This Amendment No. 2 is being filed to, among other things, include Purchaser on the Schedule 13D as a result of Purchaser’s acceptance for payment of 17,763,921 Shares validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer on February 11, 2005. The information provided in Item 3 and Item 6 of the Schedule 13D with respect to the “Reporting Person” refers to each of Parent and Purchaser.

        Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Schedule 13D.

Item 2. Identity and Background.

        Item 2 of the Schedule 13D is amended and supplemented to include the following:

  (a)-(c), (f) Purchaser is a newly incorporated Delaware corporation organized in connection with the Offer and the Merger and has not carried on any activities other than in connection with the Offer and the Merger. The principal offices of Purchaser are located at 1 CIT Drive, Livingston, New Jersey 07039; Telephone: (973) 740-5000. Purchaser is a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

  (d)-(e) During the last five years, Purchaser has not been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

        Item 5 is amended and supplemented to include the following:

Based on information provided by The Bank of New York, as of such time, approximately 17,763,921 Shares were tendered pursuant to the Offer, including Shares tendered pursuant to Notices of Guaranteed Delivery. Such Shares constitute approximately 98.1% of the outstanding Shares, based upon 18,115,545 outstanding Shares, as reported to Parent and Purchaser by the Company on February 11, 2005. On February 14, 2005, all Shares validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer were accepted for payment in accordance with the terms of the Offer.

  (c)-(d) Except as described herein, none of Parent, Purchaser or, to the best of their knowledge, any of their respective executive officers or directors, has acquired or disposed of any Shares during the past 60 days. Furthermore, neither Parent nor Purchaser knows of any other person with the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the securities covered by this Statement.
