If I am a stockholder of record of AppliedMicro shares, how do I cast my vote?
If you are a stockholder of record, you may vote in person at the annual meeting. We will give you a ballot when you arrive. If you do not wish to vote in person or you will not be attending the annual meeting, you may vote by proxy over the Internet. To vote by proxy on the Internet, go to http://www.proxyvote.com to complete an electronic proxy card. Alternatively, if you requested and received a printed copy of these materials by mail, you may also complete, sign and return the accompanying proxy card using the envelope provided, or you may vote by proxy over the phone by dialing the toll-free number shown on the proxy card and following the recorded instructions. If you vote by proxy, your vote must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on August 17, 2009 to be counted.
We provide Internet proxy voting to allow you to vote your shares on-line, with procedures designed to ensure the authenticity and correctness of your proxy vote instructions. However, please be aware that you must bear any costs associated with your Internet access, such as usage charges from Internet access providers and telephone companies.
