Item 1. Description of Registrant’s Securities to be Registered.
     The class of capital stock to be registered is the registrant’s Common Stock, $0.001 par value per share (or the registrant’s “Common Stock”). For a description of the Common Stock, reference is made to the information set forth under the heading “Description of Capital Stock” in the prospectus included in the registrant’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-167325), originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2010, as amended by any amendments to such Registration Statement and by any prospectus subsequently filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, which description is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 2. Exhibits.
     Under the Instructions relating to Form 8-A exhibits, no exhibits are required to be filed because no other securities of the registrant are being registered with The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC, and the securities registered hereby are not being registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act.
