* Broker non-votes represent shares held by broker nominees for beneficial owners that were not voted with respect to a non-routine proposal because the broker nominee did not receive voting instructions from the beneficial owner and lacked discretionary authority to vote the shares. If a broker does not receive voting instructions from the beneficial owner, a broker may vote on routine matters but may not vote on non-routine matters. Broker non-votes are counted for the purpose of determining the presence of a quorum but are not counted for the purpose of determining the number of shares entitled to vote on non-routine matters such as an election of directors.
