3. To transact such
other business as may properly come before the Meeting or any adjournment thereof.
Adoption of each of Proposal One and Proposal Two requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by
shareholders present in person or by proxy and entitled to vote at the Meeting, provided that a quorum is present at the Meeting.
WHETHER OR NOT YOU PLAN TO ATTEND THE MEETING, PLEASE COMPLETE, DATE, SIGN AND RETURN THE PROXY PREVIOUSLY SENT TO YOU IN

If you attend the Meeting in person, you will be asked to present photo identification, such as a driver’s license. If you
hold your shares through an account with a brokerage firm, bank or other nominee, you will also be asked to present appropriate proof of ownership to be admitted to the Meeting. A recent brokerage statement or a letter from your bank or broker are
examples of proof of ownership.
If you attend the Meeting and do not hold your shares through an account with a brokerage firm, bank or other nominee, you
may revoke your proxy and vote in person. If you hold your shares through an account with a brokerage firm, bank or other nominee, please follow the instructions you receive from them to vote your shares and revoke your vote, if necessary. If you
want to vote your shares held in street name in person at the Meeting, you must bring with you a written proxy in your name from the broker, bank or other nominee that holds your shares.
During the period of adjournment, the Company will continue to solicit proxies from shareholders with respect to the
proposals set forth in the Company’s Proxy Statement. Proxies previously submitted in respect of the Meeting will be voted at the adjourned Meeting unless properly revoked. No further action is required by shareholders who have already voted.
We have engaged Georgeson to assist us in the solicitation of proxies in connection with the Meeting. The cost of
preparing and soliciting proxies will be borne by the Company.
Very truly yours,
Chief Executive Officer
