Proxy Cost and Solicitation
Proxies may be solicited by mail, in person, by telephone, or by other methods. Solicitations may be made by directors, officers, and employees of the Company, none of whom will receive additional compensation for such solicitations. The Company will request banks, brokerage houses, and other custodians, nominees, and fiduciaries to forward all of its solicitation materials to the beneficial owners of the shares of common stock they hold of record. The Company will reimburse these record holders for clerical and mailing expenses incurred by them in forwarding these materials to their customers.
The Company has engaged The Proxy Advisory Group, LLC (PAG) to assist in the solicitation of proxies and provide related advice and informational support for services fee and the reimbursement of its customary
out-of-pocket expenses that are not expected to exceed $13,000 in the aggregate. The cost of soliciting proxies on behalf of the Board of Directors for the annual meeting is being borne by the Company. Costs incidental to these solicitations include expenditures for printing, postage, legal, soliciting, and related expenses and could include accounting and other consulting services in addition to the fees and costs of PAG described above.
