The Company’s Board of Directors has considered the outcome of that vote and decided that the Company will hold future non-binding, advisory votes on executive compensation every year until the Company’s Board of Directors otherwise determines that a different frequency for such non-binding, advisory votes is in the best interest of the Company or until the next required vote on the frequency of such votes.
