ITEM 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
(d) As previously reported in the Original Report, at the Annual Meeting in non-binding advisory votes over a majority of the votes cast approved the Company’s executive compensation and, consistent with the recommendation of the Board, recommended that the Company hold future non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis. In light of these voting results and other factors, the Board determined that the Company will hold future non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis until the next required non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of such votes on executive compensation. The Company is required to hold non-binding advisory votes on frequency every six years.
