Announcement for Stockholders

Due to the continued public health impact of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) we will be holding the Company’s annual stockholder meeting solely by means of remote communication. The link to our virtual shareholder meeting is provided on this page.

We are furnishing proxy materials to our stockholders via the Internet and mailing. The Internet delivery is designed to expedite receipt by stockholders.

Note: To increase efficiency, minimize costs and reduce our carbon footprint, most stockholders will not receive paper copies of our proxy materials. Instead, we will use the internet as our key means of furnishing proxy materials to our stockholders, under the “Notice and Access” model permitted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. All stockholders of record as of March 22, 2021, will receive instructions on how to vote by mail.
