Akzo Nobel is scheduled for a change of plea and possible sentencing before this Court on May 17, 2006. Akzo Nobel will waive Indictment and plead guilty under Fed. R. Crim. P. 11(c)(1)(C). The United States and Akzo Nobel have filed a Joint Sentencing Memorandum describing the material terms of the plea agreement and the agreed upon sentencing recommendation.

Akzo Nobel waives its right to a presentence report. The United States and Akzo Nobel request that the Court sentence Akzo Nobel on an expedited basis pursuant to Crim. L.R. 32-1(b), on May 17, 2006.
