* Any broker non-votes count toward the determination of a quorum for the Annual Meeting, but are excluded from the denominator in the calculation of the percentage of shares voting. Abstentions are counted towards the tabulation of votes cast on matters properly presented to the stockholders (except the election of directors) and have the same effect as negative votes. Broker non-votes are not counted as votes cast, and therefore they have no effect on the outcome of the matters presented at the Annual Meeting.
