Item 8.01 Other Events.
On February 6, 2009 we announced that J. Kevin Gilligan was resigning from our Board of Directors effective February 15, 2009. We also announced that effective immediately Mr. Gilligan had resigned as our Independent Lead Director and that Dr. William R. Spivey has been appointed as our Independent Lead Director. Mr. Gilligan's resignation was not as a result of any disagreement with our company. Mr. Gilligan recently was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Capella Education Company and his resignation will enable him to focus on his new employment position. Mr. Gilligan's resignation also avoids our company having two directors who are executives at a company unrelated to ADC. Lois M. Martin, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Capella, is also a director of our company.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
