As previously reported, the stockholders voted to hold such advisory votes every three years. Consistent with these results, on October 5, 2011, the Companys Board of Directors determined that the Company will conduct future stockholder advisory votes regarding executive compensation every three years until the next required stockholder advisory vote on the frequency of say-on-pay votes is required under Section 14A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or until the Board of Directors otherwise determines that a different frequency for such votes is in the best interests of the Companys stockholders.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
