Mr. Adame’s decision to resign is not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee intends promptly to launch a search for candidates to fill the vacancy on the Board of Directors created by the foregoing resignation.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
