How Proxies Work
Shareholders have three options for submitting their proxy vote: (1) via the Internet, (2) by telephone, or (3) by mail, using the proxy card. If you have Internet access, we encourage you to record your vote on the Internet. Voting by Internet or telephone saves your Company postage and processing costs. In addition, when you vote via the Internet or by telephone prior to the date of the Meeting, your vote is recorded immediately. Please refer to the Proxy Card or Voting Instruction Form for further instructions on voting.
Proxy votes received in time and not revoked will be voted in accordance with the proxy designation. If no specific instructions are indicated, proxies will be voted:
A shareholder of the Company who has voted by Internet, telephone or mail may revoke the vote at any time prior to its exercise at the Annual Meeting by (1) giving written notice of revocation to the Corporate Secretary of the Company, (2) properly submitting to the Company a proxy vote bearing a later date, or (3) attending the Annual Meeting and voting in person. All written notices of revocation and other communications with respect to revocation of proxies should be addressed as follows:
