ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, or the Dodd-Frank Act, contains a provision that is commonly known as
Say-on-Pay. Say-on-Pay gives our stockholders an opportunity to vote on an
advisory, non-binding basis to approve the compensation of our named executive officers as disclosed in this Proxy Statement pursuant to Commission rules.
This vote is not intended to address any specific item of compensation, but rather the overall compensation of our named executive officers and the executive
compensation program and practices described in this Proxy Statement. Please read the Compensation Discussion and Analysis and the executive compensation tables and narrative disclosure for a detailed explanation of our executive compensation
program and practices. Accordingly, we are asking our stockholders to vote FOR the following resolution:
