Vote Required and Recommendation of the Board of Directors

The vote of a plurality of the shares present in person or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the election of directors at the 2019 Annual Meeting is required to elect the nominees to the Board. This means that the 10 individuals nominated for election to the Board who receive the most "FOR" votes (among votes properly cast in person or by proxy) will be elected. Abstentions and broker non-votes are not counted for purposes of the election of directors.

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the election of each nominee for director.
