If the conditions are met, sales under the plan may commence in January 1, 2014 and would be completed by December 31, 2014. The sales by Mr. Waldman under his plan are intended to diversify his securities holdings and to help meet estate planning goals. All transactions under the plan will be disclosed through Form 144 and Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission as required by applicable securities laws.

Under his plan, Mr. Shulman may sell up to 14,453 shares, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions.
