On November 21, 2011, our Board of Directors elected Michael Thorson as a director contingent on his acceptance.  Mr. Thorson accepted the position on November 29, 2011.

In connection with Mr. Thorson’s election as a director, the registrant and Mr. Thorson signed a Director Offer Letter.  Mr. Thorson’s term will continue until he is terminated or resigns or until his successor is duly elected and qualified, and he is subject to re-election each year at an annual meeting of shareholders.  Subject to the Board’s approval, he will be compensated with an option to purchase up to 25,000 shares of our common stock, which option will be granted under our 2011 Equity Incentive Plan.  The option will fully vest on November 28, 2012.  We must maintain an officers’ and directors’ insurance policy insuring Mr. Thorson for a policy amount not to exceed $2,000,000.
