FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
DECLARATION OF RENATA B. HESSE
1. My name is Renata B. Hesse. I am an attorney in the Antitrust Division ("Division") of the United States Department of Justice, and I am one of the attorneys representing the United States in the above-captioned litigation. I submit this declaration in support of the Opposition of the United States to Two Motions of Relpromax Antitrust Inc. for Amicus Participation and for an Extension of Time.
2. On January 28, 2002, the Division received a letter entitled "Comments of Relpromax Antitrust Inc." concerning the Revised Proposed Final Judgment in this case. I have reviewed the letter, and although it does not further identify Relpromax or its interest, it is both signed by Carl Lundgren, Ph.D., as President of Relpromax Antitrust Inc. and identifies Mr. Lundgren as the President of Relpromax Antitrust Inc. Among other things, the letter attaches and incorporates by reference (1) the Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Support of the Motion of Relpromax Antitrust Inc. for Limited Participation as an Amicus Curiae and for an Extension of Time and (2) the Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Support of the Motion of Relpromax Antitrust Inc. for Limited Participation as an Amicus Curiae and for an Extension of Time on the Grounds that the United States Has Not Provided a Competitive Impact Statement in Compliance with the Requirements of 15 U.S.C. § 16(b).
3. Attached hereto as Exhibit A are the results of a search of the ChoicePoint Business and Government Services public record database obtained by the Antitrust Division's librarian on February 1, 2002. The search results indicate that a company by the name of Relpromax Antitrust Inc. was incorporated as a domestic corporation in Virginia on December 28, 2001.
I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed on February 4, 2002.
