* On November 13, 2013, the Company disclosed on Form 8-K that the Board had amended the Company's Bylaws to require that certain litigation, including shareholder derivative suits, be brought in Delaware, the state of the Company's incorporation. A proxy advisory firm, which opposes such Bylaw amendments without shareholder approval, recommended as a consequence that shareholders vote against the re-election of the Chairman of the Nominating and Governance Committee, Mr. Campbell.

(c) The appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as independent registered public accounting firm was ratified by a majority of votes cast, with 149,352,212 shares in favor, 850,707 shares in opposition and 138,752 shares in abstention.

(d) The proposal to approve the advisory (non-binding) resolution on the company's executive compensation as reported in the Proxy Statement was approved by a majority of votes cast, with 138,250,113 shares in favor, 2,614,313 shares in opposition and 414,280 shares in abstention. The broker non-vote was 9,062,965 shares.
