* Broker non-votes are instances where a broker holding shares of record for a beneficial owner does not vote the shares because it has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner and therefore is precluded by the rules of Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”) from voting on a particular matter. Under Nasdaq rules, when a broker holding shares in “street name” does not receive voting instructions from a beneficial owner, the broker has discretionary authority to vote on certain routine matters but is prohibited from voting on non-routine matters. Brokers who did not receive instructions were not entitled to vote on the election of directors, but they were entitled to vote on the ratification of the appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm.
