This Amendment does not otherwise amend, update or change any other disclosure contained in the Original Report and should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing.
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(d) Effective March 2, 2018, the Board of Directors increased the size of the Board from seven to eight directors, which coupled with Mr. Olson's death created two vacancies. The Board appointed Ben R. Leedle, Jr. and Leslie K. Morgan as new Directors, effective March 2, 2018, filling the vacancies. As of that date, Ms. Morgan and Mr. Leedle had not been named to any committees of the Board of Directors. This amendment to the Original Filing is being filed to report that Ms. Morgan has been appointed to serve on the Audit Committee and the Risk Management Committee and Mr. Leedle has been appointed, to serve on the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee. The Board of Directors of the Company has determined that both Ms. Morgan and Mr. Leedle satisfy all applicable requirements to serve on the respective committees, including without limitation the applicable requirements of the Nasdaq Stock Exchange and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Ms. Morgan and Mr. Leedle will be compensated for committee meetings attended as provided to all committee members and as described in the Company’s proxy statement.
