Based on these results and consistent with the previous recommendation of the Governance Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the Governance Committee), the Governance Committee, discharging the responsibility of the Board of Directors pursuant to its Charter, has determined by unanimous written consent dated June 6, 2011, consistent with its prior recommendation and the vote of the Stockholders of the Company, that the advisory vote on executive compensation should occur on an annual basis until the next required advisory (non-binding) vote on the frequency of such votes on executive compensation occurs.
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.
