Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Submission of Matters to a V


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

The Company's shareholders approved the 2013 Non-Employee Directors Stock Plan at the Company's annual meeting held on May 21, 2013. The Plan provides that immediately after each annual meeting of shareholders commencing in 2013, each eligible director in office immediately following the annual meeting is entitled to be credited the number of restricted stock units equal to two times the amount of the then-current annual retainer payable by the Company for services rendered as a director for such year, divided by the fair market value of a common share on the last trading date prior to the annual meeting. The current annual retainer payable by the company is $25,000. The maximum number of shares available for issuance under this plan is 500,000 and the maximum number of shares that may be granted to any director in any calendar year is 5,000.

Restricted stock unit awards are at all times fully vested ninety days after the date of grant. Restricted stock units credited to an eligible director's restricted stock unit account under the 2013 plan will become payable on the vesting date. The distribution will be made in a lump sum as soon as practicable, but no later than 30 days, following the applicable vesting date.
