(d) On November 14, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") elected Allen "Al" R. Weiss to serve on the Board, effective immediately. Mr. Weiss will serve as a Class B Director, with his current term expiring at the Company's 2013 annual stockholders' meeting. The Board has determined that Mr. Weiss qualifies as an "independent director" under the New York Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Rules, and the Board has appointed him as a member of the Board's Compensation Committee and Governance and Nominating Committee.

Mr. Weiss served as President of Worldwide Operations for the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts business of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) from 2005 until his retirement in 2011. Prior to that, Mr. Weiss served in a number of roles for The Walt Disney Company since 1972, including most recently as President of Walt Disney World Resort, Executive Vice President of Walt Disney World Resort and Vice President of Resort Operations Support. Mr. Weiss also serves on the board or council of a number of community and civic organizations.

There were no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Weiss and any other person pursuant to his election as a director, and there are and have been no transactions since the beginning of the Company's last fiscal year, or currently proposed, regarding Mr. Weiss that are required to be disclosed by Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

(e) On November 14, 2011, the Board's Compensation Committee approved a new form of Restricted Stock Award Agreement (the "Agreement") for the Company's Amended and Restated 2002 Stock and Incentive Plan (the "Plan"), which replaces the prior form of Restricted Stock Award Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.27 to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 18, 2011. The Agreement sets forth the material terms of an award of shares of restricted stock, including the forfeiture restrictions implemented with respect to the grant of shares of restricted stock and any cash or in-kind dividends granted prior to vesting of the shares, the applicable vesting terms, the treatment of unvested shares of restricted stock upon termination of employment and potential tax consequences of the award.

The summary of the Agreement in this Current Report on Form 8-K is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
