The parties entered into and filed a Stipulation of Settlement with the court on January 22, 2016, in which they agreed, among other things, that the Bushansky action would be dismissed with prejudice as part of the settlement of the action captioned Hemmingson, et al. v.

The principal terms of the Hemmingson settlement are described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 12, 2016. The Derivative Actions are more fully described in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2015.
