Mr. Deutsch was appointed to serve on the Human Resource and Compensation, Audit and Finance and Risk Committees of the Board.

A total of 70% of the annual retainer will be paid in cash, in substantially equal monthly installments, and the remainder of the retainer will paid in the form of a restricted stock award (the number of restricted shares subject to the award will be determined by dividing such remaining retainer amount by the market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant).
