On January 15, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Company elected Sean P. Hegarty, a Class II director, effective on January 16, 2014. Mr. Hegarty's term will expire at the Company's 2016 Annual Meeting of the Stockholders. The Company's Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Hegarty is an independent director, as such independent requirements are established by the Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. and the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

Mr. Hegarty, age 56, worked for Forbes Family Holdings Inc. and its subsidiary, Forbes Media LLC from 1987 until 2011. Mr. Hegarty joined Forbes as the director of taxes, became the vice president of finance in 1998 and in 2003 he became the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer until he left the company in 2011. Currently, Mr. Hegarty is the managing partner of his own financial and tax planning consulting firm, Hegarty & Company. Mr. Hegarty began his career in 1979 with Ernst & Young LLP.

Mr. Hegarty holds a B.S. degree from Fordham University and is a Certified Public Accountant.

In connection with his appointment, Mr. Hegarty was granted the same compensation as the other non-employee directors. As such, they are entitled to receive, an annual retainer of $30,000 and an annual restricted stock award of the Company's Class A Common Stock equal to the value of $20,000 (determined by the closing price of the shares on the date of the Annual Shareholders' Meeting). For this year, he will receive the retainer and $18,333 in the Company's Class A Common Stock, determined by the closing price of the shares on January 16, 2014 (the date of their election and first board meeting attendance).
