Turner, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, has terminated the trading plan he entered into on April 26, 2018, in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Plan”). On April 30, 2018, the Company publicly disclosed that Mr. Turner had entered into the Plan.
