The annual meeting was originally scheduled for May 20, 2020, but in light of current public health concerns related to COVID-19 and related public health measures, the Company considers it prudent to delay the annual meeting.

At the annual meeting on June 16, the Company expects that in-person attendance will be possible consistent with social distancing requirements. In order to facilitate stockholder participation, the Company will host a conference call for those wishing to listen in.

The Company does not intend to have management make a presentation. Stockholders of record on March 23, 2020, the original record date, may continue to vote in person or by proxy until June 16, 2020. Consistent with guidance by the State of Delaware and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company will not be mailing additional proxy materials with respect to the new annual meeting.
Additional information regarding the annual meeting including the proposals to be voted on can be found in the Companys proxy statement on Schedule 14A, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 25, 2020. A copy may be obtained free of charge at www.sec.gov
