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) The number of options granted is not known at this time. The number is calculated as a function of base pay, a long-term incentive (LTI) percentage and the fair value of the option. The Binomial Lattice option valuation model will be used to estimate the fair value of the option. This model requires the input of certain assumptions, including risk-free interest rate, volatility, dividend yield, and expected life. The formula for determining the number of options granted is: number of options = (base pay x LTI%) / option fair value. This Form 4 will be amended to report the number of options granted when that number has been calculated.
(2) Granted under the issuer's 2010 Equity Incentive Plan, exercisable in four equal annual installments commencing on 2/17/2013.

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.
