Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Mercedes A. Walton was elected to join our board of directors, filling a seat created by an increase in the size of our board of directors effective July 22, 2014. Ms. Walton currently serves on the board of directors and is a member of the compensation committee and the management committee of SilkRoad, Inc., a provider of cloud-based social talent management solutions. Prior to its 2011 acquisition by CenturyLink, Ms. Walton served on the board of directors and was a member of the governance committee, the audit committee and the business development committee of SAVVIS, Inc., an industry leader in enterprise cloud computing and managed hosting services. From September 2005 through August 2011, Ms. Walton served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cryo-Cell International, Inc., a publicly traded biotechnology company.
For her service on the board, Ms. Walton will be compensated in accordance with the Companys non-employee director compensation policy, which provides that our non-employee directors receive: an annual retainer of $50,000 and 6,000 shares of restricted stock; an annual retainer of $10,000 for the person serving as the chairperson of the Audit Committee, and an annual retainer of $6,000 for each non-employee director acting as the chairperson of the Compensation Committee, Governance Committee, and Merger and Acquisition Committee, respectively; and an annual retainer of $50,000 for the person serving as the Non-Executive Chairman. We do not provide any form of incentive compensation or other form of stock-based or cash-based compensation or perquisites to our directors except as set forth above, although we do reimburse directors for reasonable expenses incurred in connection with out-of-town travel costs, lodging and other related expenses to and from board meetings. We pay one-quarter of the annual retainers and attendance fees in arrears at the end of each calendar quarter. Directors may choose to receive deferred stock units (DSUs) in lieu of cash retainers. We issue the annual stock grants on June 30 of each year and they vest one-quarter upon issuance and one-quarter on the following September 30, December 31, and March 31, respectively, provided that the director is still a member of the Board on that date. We prorate the annual cash retainers for any departing or new directors during the applicable quarter.
A copy of the press release announcing Ms. Waltons appointment to the board is furnished, but not filed, as Exhibit 99 hereto.
