Set forth below are the proposals voted upon at the Annual Meeting, and the estimated preliminary voting results reported by the Company’s proxy solicitors, D.F.

These results are preliminary estimates only and are subject to change based on the certification of the voting results by the independent inspector of elections, IVS Associates, Inc. (“IVS”).
