As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2013, Mr. Dan Okrent had notified the Company of his intention to retire from the Board of Directors effective as of the calling to order of the 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. Accordingly, after nine years of service, Mr. Okrent retired from the Board of Directors on July 26, 2013, upon the calling to order of the 2013 Annual Meeting. Also as previously disclosed, upon the effective time of Mr. Okrent's retirement, the size of the Board of Directors was reduced from seven to six members.

Following the 2013 Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors named Benn Konsynski, Ph.D., as Chairman of the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board of Directors, to fill the position vacated by Mr. Okrent upon his retirement.

Finally, the Company adopted a revised form of Restricted Stock Unit Award (the "Award") pursuant to our Second Amended and Restated 1994 Stock and Incentive Plan (the "Plan"). The Award sets forth the terms and conditions on which Restricted Stock Unit Awards are to be made under the Plan. The changes to the prior form of restricted stock unit award, as reflected by the Award are considered clarifying and not material. The revised form of Award is used for the grant of Restricted Stock Unit Awards, beginning in fiscal 2014. The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of our form of Restricted Stock Unit Award filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by this reference.
