vote is very important to us. Most shareholders hold their shares in street name through a broker and may vote by using the Internet,
by telephone or by mail. If your shares are held in the name of a bank, broker or other holder of record, you must present proof
of your ownership, such as a bank or brokerage account statement, to be admitted to the meeting and if you plan to vote your shares
in person at the meeting, you must obtain a proxy, executed in your favor, from your bank or broker. All shareholders must also
present a form of personal identification in order to be admitted to the meeting.
behalf of the entire Board, I thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
