ATTENDING THE ANNUAL MEETING
Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting in person, we recommend that you submit your GOLD proxy card or voting instructions, or vote by telephone or online by the applicable deadline.
If you wish to vote at the meeting and your shares are held through a bank or broker you must obtain a legal proxy from the bank or broker in advance of the Annual Meeting giving you the right to vote your shares.
WHETHER OR NOT YOU PLAN TO ATTEND THE ANNUAL MEETING, YOUR PROMPT ACTION IS IMPORTANT. YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT, NO MATTER HOW MANY SHARES OF COMMON STOCK YOU OWN. Do not return any white proxy card that you may receive from the Company relating to the Annual Meeting, even as a protest vote. If you have already submitted a white proxy card to the Company relating to the Annual Meeting, it is not too late to change your vote. To revoke your prior proxy and change your vote, simply sign, date and return the GOLD proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided. Only your latest signed and dated proxy will be counted.
