Mr. Furner continues to be subject to the Company’s stock ownership guidelines, under which he is required to hold Company stock equal in value to at least five times his base salary. Upon the conclusion of each monthly sale transaction under the Plan, Mr. Furner will continue to satisfy the requirements of the Company’s stock ownership guidelines.

Any transactions under the Plan will be disclosed publicly through Form 144 and Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to the extent required by law.
