This excerpt taken from the AYR DEF 14A filed Apr 3, 2009.
In February 2009, the Board approved an increase in the annual fees paid to Messrs. Allen, Hacker, Kukral, Merriman and Ueberroth, to US$60,000 and Audit, Compensation and Nominating and Corporate
Governance Committee service fees to US$10,000 for members and US$15,000 for chairs. These fee increases were adopted to reflect the additional commitments required of directors and to bring our directors cash compensation more in line with other similar companies. Each of such five directors was also granted 25,000 supplemental restricted common shares, vesting on January 1, 2010, having aggregate value for each as of the grant date equal to approximately US$70,200.
