Equity Ownership Requirements

On April 18, 2013, the Compensation Committee revised the policy on equity ownership which will apply to the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Accounting Officer, and all direct reports to the Chief Executive Officer (the "Officers"). Under the revised policy, Officers are required to retain ownership (while employed by the Company) of 25% of all shares of Company common stock received upon the vesting of any restricted stock unit grant or upon the exercise of any options (net of any exercise price or shares withheld for taxes) vesting after April 22, 2011 until the net value of vested shares held by such officer equals or exceeds the required multiple of such officer's base salary (the "Ownership Threshold"). Compliance with the Ownership Threshold shall be determined each year on the basis of the closing price on the last trading day of the first fiscal quarter. For Officers other than the Chief Executive Officer, the required multiple shall be two. For the Chief Executive Officer, the multiple shall be four.
