The increase in the size of the Board, the election of Mr. Tombar to fill the newly created vacancy on the Board and Mr. Tombar’s appointment to the audit committee and the compensation committee were based upon the recommendation of the Company’s nominating and governance committee.

In connection with his appointment, the Board reviewed the independence of Mr. Tombar using the independence standards of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) and the Securities and Exchange Commission and, based on this review, determined that Mr. Tombar is independent within the meaning of the applicable NYSE listing standards currently in effect and within the meaning of Section 10A-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

Prior to that, he worked in Goldman’s Investment Banking Division in New York, London, and Houston, advised several upstream oil and gas, oilfield services and petrochemical clients and executed a variety of transactions for public and private oil and gas companies. Mr. Tombar began his career with Goldman in its Energy & Power Principal Investment Area and Banking Group based in New York in 1994. Mr. Tombar graduated with an M.B.A. from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business and an A.B. degree in Applied Math from Harvard University. The Company believes Mr. Tombar’s qualifications to serve on the board include his executive leadership and 25 years of investment and finance experience in the energy industry.
