Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Company has determined to hold its 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "2014 Annual Meeting") on April 18, 2014. Because the 2014 Annual Meeting date is more than 30 days earlier than the anniversary date of the Company's 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "2013 Annual Meeting"), in accordance with Rule 14a-5(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") and the Company's Bylaws, the Company is informing shareholders of such change.

Because the Annual Meeting will be held more than 30 days earlier than the anniversary date of the 2013 Annual Meeting, the deadline for shareholder nominations for directors or proposals to be considered at the 2014 Annual Meeting (that are not to be included in the proxy materials) as set forth on page 3 of the Company's 2013 Proxy Statement no longer applies.


In accordance with Article II, Section 5(b) of the Bylaws, shareholder nominations for director or proposals or to be for considered at the 2014 Annual Meeting that are not to be included in the proxy materials must be received by the Company's Secretary at 3929 Point Eden Way, Hayward, California, 94545 no later than the close of business on March 3, 2014, which is the tenth day following the date of this public announcement of the 2014 Annual Meeting date being filed on Form 8-K.

Shareholders are advised to review the Bylaws, which contain additional requirements for advance notice of shareholder proposals and director nominations. The proxy solicited by the Board of Directors for the 2014 Annual Meeting will confer discretionary authority to vote on any shareholder proposal presented at the 2014 Annual Meeting if the Company does not receive notice of such proposal prior to such date.
