Executive Officer Intended Transfers of Company Securities The company has a policy that generally requires the members of its board of directors and members of senior management that are "executive officers" for purposes of the SEC's Section 16 rules to pre-announce their intention to make transfers of the company's securities in the permitted period following each earnings release, which policy the company reviews annually. In addition, this policy applies only to an intent to transfer shares not previously announced, and does not apply to certain transfers for estate planning purposes. The following schedule shows the individuals that have expressed a current intent to transfer, during the period, the maximum number of shares they propose to transfer and the percentage of their holdings, that the intended transfer amount represents. None of the individuals are required to dispose of shares and the listed individuals may choose to sell fewer, or none, of the shares described, but will not, when combined with shares previously preannounced but not yet transferred, sell more during the period. An individual's ultimate decision to transfer shares of common stock will be made in compliance with applicable federal securities laws.
