Item 8.01 Other Events.

On November 7, 2023, we filed a notice of annual meeting of stockholders and proxy statement (together, the "Definitive Proxy Statement") for the solicitation of proxies in connection with an annual meeting of our stockholders (the "Annual Meeting") to be held on November 20, 2023.

On November 8, 2023, we have determined to postpone the Annual Meeting to allow additional time for us to mail the Definitive Proxy Statement and solicit proxies from our stockholders. On November 8, 2023 we filed an amended Definitive Proxy Statement that changed the date of the Annual Meeting to be held on Monday, December 4, 2023. There were no changes to the location, time or the record date of the Annual Meeting.

We did not mail the Definitive Proxy Statement for the originally scheduled Annual Meeting. We did mail the Definitive Proxy Statement reflecting the new date for the Annual Meeting to our stockholders on or about November 15, 2023.

At the Annual Meeting on December 4, 2023, due to a lack of a quorum of shareholders, we adjourned the Annual Meeting to a later date to be announced to ensure a quorum of shareholders.  On December 18, 2023, the Company set the adjourned Annual Meeting to December 28, 2023.  There are no changes to the location, time or the record date of the adjourned Annual Meeting. 

Participants in the Solicitation

Our company and its directors, officers and regular employees, under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from our stockholders. Our stockholders may obtain more detailed information regarding the names, affiliations and interests of our directors and officers in the Definitive Proxy Statement, which may be obtained free of charge from the sources indicated below.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

We urge our stockholders and other interested persons to read the Definitive Proxy Statement as well as other documents to be filed by our company with the SEC because these documents will contain important information about our company and the proposals to be submitted at the Annual Meeting. Stockholders may obtain copies of the Definitive Proxy Statement, without charge, at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to our company at 8541 E. Anderson Drive, Suite 100, Scottsdale, Arizona 85255, Attention: Chief Financial Officer.
