On April 10, 2017, the Registrant provided a notice to the NYSE MKT regarding the resignation of Michael Bello dated April 7, 2017 from the Registrant’s Audit Committee. The Registrant determined that although Mr. Bello satisfied the criteria for independence set forth in NYSE MKT Rule 803A(2), he did not meet the heightened requirements for audit committee members set forth in NYSE MKT Rule 803B(2) and Rule 10A-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended due to the payment of a de minimus amount of commissions to an insurance agency owned by Mr. Bello.

Mr. Bello promptly resigned from the Audit Committee and the Board has appointed Jay Blau to serve in replacement thereto. The Registrant has determined that Jay Blau meets the independence criteria for audit committee members. Mr. Bello will continue to serve on the Board of Directors and on the Compensation Committee, and will continue to be deemed independent for those purposes.
