the reporting person has ceased to be the beneficial owner of more than 5
percent of the class of securities, check the following   ( )


Item 6. Ownership of More than Five/Ten Percent on Behalf of Another Person:

Clients of or the persons filing this Schedule 13G have the right to receive or
the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale
of, the securities reported on this Schedule 13G. Unless otherwise indicated by
the persons filing this Schedule 13G, no person's interest relates to more than
five percent of the class of securities. Securities reported on this Schedule
13G as being beneficially owned by PI consist of securities beneficially owned
by subsidiaries of PI which are registered investment advisers, which in turn
include securities beneficially owned by clients of such investment advisers,
which clients may include investment companies registered under the Investment
Company Act and/or employee benefit plans, pension funds, endowment funds or
other institutional clients.


Item 7. Identification and Classification of the Subsidiary Which Acquired
        the Security Being Reported on By the Parent Holding Company

PI, wholly owns two registered investment advisers:  Putnam Investment
Management, LLC, which is the investment adviser to the Putnam family of mutual
funds and the Putnam Advisory Company, LLC, which is the investment adviser to
Putnam's institutional clients.  Both subsidiaries have dispositive power over
the shares as investment managers.  In the case of shares held by the Putnam
mutual funds managed by Putnam Investment Management, LLC, the mutual funds,
through their boards of trustees, have voting power. Unless otherwise indicated,
The Putnam Advisory Company, LLC has sole voting power over the shares held
by its institutional clients.

In connection with the sale of shares to certain funds managed by PIM on
October 21, 2013, the issuer entered into a Voting Rights Waiver Agreement
(the "Agreement") with PIM and certain other entities and individuals
affiliated with PIM and other Putnam companies (the "Other Putnam
Investors"). Pursuant to the Agreement, PIM, Putnam and the Other Putnam
Investors have agreed to waive all voting rights that they may have in
respect of any voting securities issued by the issuer that exceed, in the
aggregate, 4.99% of the total voting rights exercisable by the issuer's
outstanding voting securities. The Agreement provides for an apportionment
of any voting rights waived by Putnam, PIM or the Other Putnam Investors
and expiration of the Agreement, among other terms, as set forth in the
Agreement, which is included as Exhibit 10.5 to the issuer's Current
Report on Form 8-K dated October 21, 2013.

Pursuant to Rule 13d-4, PI declares that the filing of this Schedule
13G shall not be deemed an admission for the purposes of Section 13(d) or 13(g)
that it is the beneficial owner of any securities covered by this Schedule 13G,
and further states that it does not have any power to vote or dispose of, or
direct the voting or disposition of, any of the securities covered by this
Schedule 13G.
