A copy of the press release announcing Ms. Deans’ election is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

Under the Company’s Nonfunded Deferred Compensation and Unit Award Plan for Non-Employee Directors (the “Deferred Compensation Plan”), Ms. Deans will have the right to defer her fee, which would then be credited to her account as phantom stock units. Ms. Deans will also be eligible to receive additional phantom stock units awarded to the Deferred Compensation Plan.
In addition, the Company has entered into an indemnification agreement with Ms. Deans (the “Indemnification Agreement”) the terms of which are consistent with those previously executed by each of the current members of the Board. The form of such Indemnification Agreement is more fully described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 8, 2009, which description is incorporated by reference herein. Such description does not purport to be complete, however, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Indemnification Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 8, 2009, and incorporated herein by reference.
The Board appointed Ms. Deans to the Compensation Committee and the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee of the Board, having determined that Ms. Deans satisfies applicable requirements to serve on such Committees. There are no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Deans and any other persons to which Ms. Deans was elected as a director. There are no current or proposed transactions in which the Company is a participant and for which disclosure is required with respect to Ms. Deans under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
