ITEM 5.07 SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS
On May 9, 2012, the Company held its Annual Meeting of Stockholders at 10:30 a.m. local time at the Company’s headquarters located at 15360 Barranca Parkway, Irvine, CA 92618. The following matters were voted upon at the meeting:

The Company’s stockholders ratified the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the Company's independent registered accounting firm for the 2012 fiscal year with over 99% of the votes cast being cast to ratify appointment.
Stockholder "Say-On-Pay" Voting:
As previously disclosed, at our 2011 stockholder meeting stockholders were provided the opportunity to cast non-binding advisory votes on the compensation of our named executive officers and the frequency with which stockholders should be provided the opportunity to vote on the compensation of our named executive officers in the future. Following the recommendation of our Board of Directors, over 99% of votes cast by stockholders at the meeting were voted to approve the compensation of our named executive officers and nearly 85% of votes cast were voted in favor of the three year frequency for future "say-on-pay" advisory votes. Consistent with these results, our Compensation Committee applied a similar compensation philosophy when setting 2012 executive compensation and decided on a three year frequency for future "say-on-pay" votes. The next "say-on-pay" vote will be held at the 2014 annual meeting of stockholders.
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.
