|*||Broker non-votes occur when a broker, bank or other nominee holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular matter because such broker, bank or other nominee does not have discretionary authority to vote on that matter and has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner. Broker non-votes had no effect on the outcome of this proposal since the election of directors is based on the votes actually cast.|
The Companys stockholders cast their non-binding advisory votes to approve executive compensation as set forth below:
