These increases were the result of the Compensation Committee's review of 2012 data to ensure that the maximum target incentive bonus opportunity of the Company's executive officers are in line with the maximum target incentive bonus opportunities of executive officers of other public companies operating in its industry. These increases are effective for 2012 bonuses that are customarily paid in 2013. The increase in these percentages is not necessarily indicative of a decision by the Compensation Committee to increase bonuses paid to the executive officers of the Company. Any such decisions will be made by the Compensation Committee in 2013 after full deliberation regarding the Company's performance for the full year of 2012. All other terms and conditions of the Company's compensatory arrangements with these executive officers remain unchanged.
