Virtual Shareholder Meeting
In order to address concerns and continuing government restrictions
related to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic (“COVID-19”)
this year we are again holding a virtual Annual Meeting. In
addition to concerns related to COVID-19, holding a virtual Annual
Meeting provides expanded access, improved communication and
potential cost savings to our shareholders and our Company. We
believe that holding a virtual Annual Meeting will enable more
shareholders to attend and participate in the meeting because our
shareholders can fully participate from any location with Internet
The Annual Meeting will be conducted exclusively online via live,
audio-only, webcast, allowing all of the Company’s shareholders the
option to participate in the live, online shareholder meeting from
any location convenient to them. Only shareholders at the close of
business on the record date may attend, vote and ask questions at
the Annual Meeting by following the instructions provided. The
