Counting of Votes
 
All votes will be tabulated by the inspector of election appointed for the annual meeting, who will separately tabulate affirmative and negative votes, abstentions and broker non-votes. Shares held by persons attending the annual meeting but not voting, shares represented by proxies that reflect abstentions as to a particular proposal and broker non-votes will be counted as present for purposes of determining a quorum.
 
Our directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the holders of Common Stock and Class B Common Stock voting together as a class. This means the director nominees who receive the largest number of properly cast “for” votes will be elected as directors. Abstentions and withheld votes will have no effect on the result of the votes on the election of directors.
 
All other proposals must be approved separately by a majority of the shares of Common Stock voting as a class and the majority of the shares of Class B Common Stock voting as a class. Abstentions will have the same effect as votes against the proposal.
 
If you are a stockholder of record and do not submit your vote by proxy or vote in person at the annual meeting, your shares will not be voted. However, if you hold shares beneficially in street name, the result may be different. If you do not return the voting instruction form, your broker, trustee or nominee may vote your shares in certain circumstances and on certain proposals. The NASDAQ Global Select Market (“NASDAQ”) rules permit brokers to vote their clients’ shares in their own discretion on the election of directors and on Item 2 if they have not received instructions from their clients. When a broker votes a client’s shares on some but not all of the proposals at a meeting, the missing votes are referred to as “broker non-votes.” Those shares will be included in determining the presence of a quorum at the meeting, but are not considered “present” for purposes of voting on non-discretionary matters.
