Solicitation of Proxies
This Proxy Solicitation is being made and paid for by us on behalf of our Board of Directors. In addition to solicitation by mail, our directors, officers and employees of our company may solicit proxies for the Meeting from our shareholders personally or by telephone, facsimile and other electronic means without compensation other than reimbursement for their actual expenses.
Arrangements will be made with brokerage firms and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries for the forwarding of solicitation materials to the beneficial owners of Scopus Shares held of record by those persons, and we will, if requested, reimburse the record holders for their reasonable out-of-pocket expenses in so doing. In addition, we reserve our right to engage a proxy solicitor in connection with this solicitation.

SHAREHOLDERS ARE URGED TO COMPLETE, SIGN, DATE AND RETURN THE ENCLOSED PROXY IN THE ENVELOPE PROVIDED. IN ORDER TO AVOID UNNECESSARY EXPENSE, WE ASK YOUR COOPERATION IN RETURNING YOUR PROXY CARD PROMPTLY, NO MATTER HOW LARGE OR SMALL YOUR HOLDINGS MAY BE.
