Proxy access will first be available to shareholders in connection with the Company’s 2020 annual meeting.

The amendments to the Bylaws also include the following:

Revisions to Article II, Section 2.2 and Article II, Section 2.3 to make certain clarifications, updates and refinements to the advance notice bylaws for shareholder nominations and proposals of business (Article II, Section 2.2 (Nature of Business at Meetings of Shareholders) and Article II, Section 2.3 (Nomination of Directors)) ;

Revisions to Article II, Section 2.12 to clarify that the chair of a shareholder meeting has the power to adjourn the meeting (Article II, Section 2.12 (Conduct of Meetings)) ;
Revisions to Article III, Section 3.3 to add a requirement that all nominees for director provide certain information, representations and agreements to the Company in order to be eligible for election (Article III, Section 3.3 (Qualification)) ;
Addition of Article IV, Section 4.5 and Article IV, Section 4.7 to provide descriptions of the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer (Article IV, Section 4.5 (Chief Executive Officer) and Article IV, Section 4.7 (Chief Operating Officer)) ; and
Certain ministerial changes throughout the Bylaws, including to update provisions to reflect amendments to the Michigan Business Corporation Act.
