Explanation of Responses:

* If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 4(b)(v).
** Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) As previously reported on a Form 4 filed on February 2, 2012 by the reporting person, the reporting person reported acquiring stock options to purchase 524,670 shares of common stock vesting over three years pursuant to the Company's 2009 Equity Incentive Plan. However, the Company subsequently determined that stock options to purchase 24,670 shares of common stock were not validly granted pursuant to the Company's 2009 Equity Incentive Plan because they exceeded the limit on the number of stock options that may be granted to any individual participant during any calendar year. Accordingly, the attempted grant of these excess stock options was ineffective, and they were never granted to the reporting person. (Continued in footnote 2)
(2) (Continued from footnote 1) The reporting person is filing this amendment to report the correct amount of stock options acquired. In addition, the reporting person is filing the amendment to correct a scriveners error in the previously reported grant date, exercise price and number of shares of restricted stock and stock options.
(3) This restricted stock award and 500,000 shares of the stock option grant vests 1/3 equally on December 31, 2012, December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2014. The remaining 167,608 shares from the option grant are performance based and become exercisable over a three-year period upon the satisfaction of certain performance conditions.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, see Instruction 6 for procedure.

Potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information contained in this form are not required to respond unless the form displays a currently valid OMB number.
