On January 24, 2012, the Company received notice from NYSE that its notice for the record date for the meeting was untimely and failed to comply with NYSE Company Manual Rules 401.02 and 204.21, which requires record date notice to NYSE a full 10 days prior to such date. The Company agreed to comply with these requirements in the future.
