Due to the change in the meeting date, the Court set a new record date of December 15, 2011 in connection with the rescheduled 2011 Annual Meeting. Holders of the Company’s common stock as of the close of business on December 15, 2011 will be entitled to vote at the rescheduled 2011 Annual Meeting.
