- Beneficial Holders may join as a “Guest” in listen-only mode.
Beneficial Holders who have obtained a legal proxy from the record holder and who wish to ask questions or vote, may join as a “Stockholder” but must register in advance by
4:00 p.m. Central Timeon April 23, 2020. A legal proxy can be obtained by logging into the voting site listed on your Voter Instruction Form and clicking on “Vote in person at the meeting” or requesting one through the broker, bank or other nominee who is the registered holder of the shares. An image of the legal proxy, in the Beneficial Holder’s name, from the broker, bank or other nominee that holds the shares must be emailed to email@example.com and the Beneficial Holder’s address must also be provided. By completing this process, Computershare will provide a Beneficial Holder with an Annual Meeting control number to use to ask questions or vote at the Annual Meeting.
All stockholders are urged to vote and submit proxies in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the Annual Meeting proxy materials. The proxy materials contain necessary information about the matters on which stockholder are being asked to vote. Stockholders are also encouraged to submit proxies as early as possible to avoid coronavirus-related processing delays. The proxy card included with the Annual Meeting proxy materials will not be updated to reflect the information above and may continue to be used to vote shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
