Approval of the material terms of the performance goals under the Company's Executive Cash Bonus Plan and the Company's 2008 Stock Option and Stock Incentive Plan also constituted approval of amendments providing for these updated performance goals to each of the Company's Executive Cash Bonus Plan and the Company's 2008 Stock Option and Stock Incentive Plan.
