PROPOSAL ONE: ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

Our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws provide that the Board of Directors shall be divided into five classes, with each class having a five-year term. Directors are assigned to each class in accordance with a resolution or resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors, each class consisting, as nearly as possible, of one-fifth the total number of directors. Vacancies on the Board of Directors resulting from death, resignation, disqualification, removal or other causes may be filled by either the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding shares or by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors then in office, even if less than a quorum of the Board of the Directors. Newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the number of directors may, unless the Board of Directors determines otherwise, be filled only by the affirmative vote of the directors then in office, even if less than a quorum of the Board of Directors. A director elected by the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy (including a vacancy created by an increase in the number of directors) shall serve for the remainder of the full term of the class of directors in which the vacancy occurred and until such director’s successor is elected and qualified.

Our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation provide that the number of directors, which shall constitute the whole Board of Directors, shall be fixed exclusively by one or more resolutions adopted from time to time by the Board of Directors. Our currently authorized number of directors is seven. The seats on the Board of Directors currently held by David C. Kleinman and Paul S. Peercy are designated as Class I Board seats, with terms expiring as of the Annual Meeting. Mssrs. Kleinman and Peercy will stand for re-election at this Annual Meeting.

Mssrs. Kleinman and Peercy are currently Board members of Sonic who were previously elected by the stockholders. If elected at the Annual Meeting, Mssrs. Kleinman and Peercy would serve until the 2014 Annual Meeting and until their successors are elected and qualified or until their earlier death, resignation or removal.
