As previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on June 19, 2013 (the "Prior 8-K"), the Company held its Annual Meeting of the Company's Stockholders on June 13, 2013 (the "Annual Meeting").

The Company then adjourned the Annual Meeting with respect to Proposal 2 to revise Proposal 2 to provide for an amendment to the Company's restated certificate of incorporation to increase the total number of authorized shares of common stock from 100 million to 200 million, rather than 250 million, as was initially contemplated, and to solicit a stockholders' vote on the revised Proposal 2. The Company supplemented the Initial Proxy Statement by filing additional definitive proxy soliciting materials with the SEC on June 7, 2013, June 13, 2013 and June 27, 2013 (together with the Initial Proxy Statement, the "Proxy Materials").

On July 18, 2013, the Company reconvened its adjourned Annual Meeting for the purpose of holding a stockholder vote on the revised Proposal 2. During the meeting, the Company's stockholders approved the revised Proposal 2 as follows:
