frequency (whether annual, biennial or triennial) with which the
Company should offer stockholders the opportunity to cast future
advisory votes on the compensation of its named executive
officers. A plurality of stockholders favored an annual advisory
vote on the Companys executive compensation. Based on the Board
of Directors recommendation in the Proxy Statement and the voting
results, the Company has determined to hold an advisory vote on
executive compensation annually.

*Under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware,
the affirmative FOR vote of a majority of those shares present
in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled
to vote on the matter is required to approve the stockholder
proposal. In tabulating the voting result, abstentions and, if
applicable, broker non-votes are not counted as votes FOR or
AGAINST the proposal. An abstention will, however, be counted
as entitled to vote on a proposal and will, therefore, have the
effect of a vote AGAINST. Applying this standard, the
percentage in favor of the stockholder proposal is calculated
by dividing the number of FOR votes by the sum of the number of
FOR, AGAINST and ABSTAIN votes.
