The Company's unitholders voted today to approve the first and second proposals found in the Proxy. While 16,887,785 votes, or 83% of all votes cast, were cast in favor of proposal 3 with 1,782,795 votes against and 1,676,220 abstaining, not enough votes were cast to comply with the quorum requirements under NASDAQ listing rules. In order to permit additional time to solicit unitholder votes to be cast (whether for, against, or in abstention) for the third proposal found in the Proxy in accordance with NASDAQ listing rules, the Annual Meeting was adjourned until July 17, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. CST and scheduled to reconvene at that time at the Company's headquarters, located at 5847 San Felipe, Suite 3000, Houston, Texas 77057.
The Company's unitholders elected Scott W. Smith, W. Richard Anderson, Loren Singletary and Bruce W. McCullough, each of whom will serve until the 2014 Annual Meeting of unitholders, or until his successor is duly elected and qualified, or until his earlier death, resignation or removal. The Company's unitholders also ratified the selection of BDO USA, LLP to serve as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2013.
If you have not yet voted or wish to change your vote on the third proposal found in the Proxy, we urge you to vote by mail or through the internet using the instructions provided on your proxy ballot.
