Duncan Smith, director, vice president and secretary of the company; Robert E. Smith, director; Lawrence E. McCanna, director; Daniel C. Keith, director; Martin R. Leader, director; Howard E.

The shareholders also ratified the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers as the company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending Dec. 31, and approved the proposed non-binding advisory vote on executive compensation.
The shareholders did not ratify a shareholder proposal requesting the adoption of a policy on a majority vote standard for uncontested board elections. A tabulation of the votes on these matters will be included in a current report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
