No item other than the six items addressed above and described in the Definitive Proxy Statement was submitted at the 2014 Annual Meeting for stockholder action.



1 Under the Company's majority voting standard, the election of a nominee

required that the nominee receive a majority of the votes cast (that is, the

number of votes cast "for" each nominee had to exceed the number of votes

cast "against" such nominee). Therefore, abstentions and broker non-votes

were required to be disregarded and had no effect on the vote results. 2 Approval of each proposal with this footnote designation required the



affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present, in person or by proxy,

and entitled to vote on the proposal at the meeting. Therefore, abstentions,

which represented shares present and entitled to vote, had the same effect as

a vote against the proposal. Broker non-votes, if any, were required to be disregarded and had no effect on the vote results.
