As previously reported in the Original Report, the Company’s stockholders recommended holding an advisory vote on executive compensation every three years. In light of, and consistent with, the voting results, the Company’s Board of Directors has determined that the Company will hold future advisory votes on executive compensation every three years, until the next required advisory vote on this matter, which shall be no later than the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders in 2017, or until the Company’s Board of Directors elects to implement a different frequency for such advisory votes.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
