The Class A stockholders elected all five director nominees on which they voted, the Class B stockholders elected all twelve director nominees on which they voted, and the Class A stockholders and Class B stockholders approved the ratification of the appointment of KPMG LLP as Cablevision’s independent registered public accounting firm for the 2012 fiscal year. The number of votes cast for, withheld or against and the number of abstentions and broker non-votes with respect to each matter voted upon, as applicable, are set forth below. In accordance with Cablevision’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, Class A stockholders have one vote per share and Class B stockholders have ten votes per share with respect to matters on which both classes of shares vote together as a single class. Accordingly, the vote counts for the stockholders vote on the ratification of the appointment of our independent registered accounting firm for the 2012 fiscal year reflect ten votes with respect to each share of Cablevision NY Group Class B common stock.
