Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
On September 21, 2012, we held our annual meeting of stockholders. A total of 83,864,589 of the Companys common stock outstanding and entitled to vote were represented at the meeting in person or by proxy, representing approximately 50.5% of the total number of shares entitled to vote at the meeting.
At the annual meeting, our stockholders elected the six nominees listed below to serve on our board of directors until the next annual meeting of stockholders, and each will continue in office until his successor has been elected and qualified or until his earlier death, resignation or retirement. The votes cast with respect to each director were as follows:
Item 8.01 Other Events.
On September 21, 2012, our board of directors authorized distributions payable to the stockholders of record each day for October 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. Distributions payable to each stockholder of record will be paid in cash on or before the 16th day of the following month. The declared distributions equal a daily amount of $0.000958904 per share of common stock. If this rate were paid each day for a 365-day period, it would equal a 3.5% annualized rate based on a purchase price of $10.00 per share. A portion of each distribution may constitute a return of capital for tax purposes. There is no assurance that we will continue to declare distributions or at this rate.
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.
