Each of the items considered at the Annual Meeting is described in further detail in the Proxy Statement. No additional item was submitted at the Annual Meeting for stockholder action.
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.
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 Annual 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.
