* Broker non-votes are instances where a broker holding
shares of record for a beneficial owner does not vote
the shares because it has not received voting
instructions from the beneficial owner and therefore is
precluded by the rules of the New York Stock Exchange
(NYSE) from voting on a particular matter. Under NYSE
rules, when a broker holding shares in street name does
not receive voting instructions from a beneficial
owner, the broker has discretionary authority to vote
on certain routine matters but is prohibited from
voting on non-routine matters. Brokers who did not
receive instructions were not entitled to vote on the
election of directors, but they were entitled to vote
on the ratification of the appointment of the
independent registered public accounting firm.
2.
The Companys shareholders ratified the appointment of
Ernst Young LLP as the Companys independent registered
public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending
December 31, 2017. The numbers of shares that voted for,
against and abstained from voting for or against the
ratification of the selection of Ernst Young LLP are
summarized in the table below.
