The following documents of the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) are incorporated herein by reference (excluding any portions of such documents that have been “furnished” but not “filed” for purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)):

 

  (a) The Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, filed with the Commission on February 28, 2013 (Commission File No. 000-28018);

 

  (b) The Company’s Amendment No. 2 to Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Commission on January 11, 2013, amending the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on October 24, 2012 (as amended by Amendment No. 1 to Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Commission on November 8, 2012) (Commission File No. 000–28018); and

 

  (c) The description of the Company’s Common Stock contained in its Registration Statement on Form 8–A filed with the Commission on March 12, 1996, as updated by the Company’s Current Report on Form 8–K filed with the Commission on August 11, 2000 (each, Commission File No. 000–28018), and any other amendment or report filed for the purpose of updating such description.

Any statement contained herein or in a document, all or a portion of which is incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference herein, shall be deemed to be modified or superseded for purposes of this Registration Statement to the extent that a statement contained herein or in any other subsequently filed document which also is or is deemed to be incorporated by reference herein modifies or supersedes such statement. Any such statement so modified or superseded shall not be deemed, except as so modified or amended, to constitute a part of this Registration Statement.

 

Item 4. Description of Securities

Not applicable.

Item 5. Interests of Named Experts and Counsel

Not applicable.

 

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers

Section 145 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) allows for the indemnification of officers, directors and other corporate agents in terms sufficiently broad to indemnify such persons under certain circumstances for liabilities (including reimbursement for expenses incurred) arising under the Securities Act. Article XII of the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation and Article VI of the Company’s bylaws authorize indemnification of the Company’s directors, officers, employees and other agents to the extent and under the circumstances permitted by the DGCL.

The Company has entered into indemnification agreements with its directors and certain officers that will require the Company, among other things, to indemnify them against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers to the fullest extent not prohibited by law.

The Company maintains liability insurance for the benefit of its officers and directors.

The above discussion of the DGCL and of the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, bylaws, and indemnification agreements is not intended to be exhaustive and is qualified in its entirety by such statute, amended and restated certificate of incorporation, bylaws and indemnification agreements.

 

Item 7. Exemption from Registration Claimed

Not applicable.

 

Item 8. Exhibits

See the attached Exhibit Index at page 6, which is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 9. Undertakings

(a) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

(i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;

(ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of this Registration Statement (or the most recent post–effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in this Registration Statement; and

(iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in this Registration Statement or any material change to such information in this Registration Statement;

 

3


provided however, that Paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) of this Section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post–effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post–effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post–effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(b) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(h) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, executive officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the provisions described in Item 6 above, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
