Amendments to the bylaws of the Corporation

By resolution by ballot, shareholders did not approve the amendments to the bylaws of the Corporation to provide for advance provisions. As a note to our shareholders, we proposed the amendments to our bylaws to provide for advance notice provisions as we are of the view that allowing reasonable time for our shareholders to consider proposed director nominees is good governance. However, our provisions did not conform in minor ways with the forms recently suggested by proxy advisory firms. We plan to make conforming minor amendments to these provisions and adopt amended bylaws. The results of the ballot were as follows:
