The requirement under New York corporate law to hold an in-person meeting has been suspended by an act of the New York State Legislature and an executive order by the Governor of the State of New York. In the event such suspension is not extended through the date of our Annual Meeting and we cannot hold our Annual Meeting in a virtual-only format as currently planned, we may provide a venue for an in-person Annual Meeting, in addition to virtual participation.

In that case, we will notify our shareholders in advance and as promptly as practicable by updating the meeting details posted on our website and issuing a press release, which will also be filed with the SEC as additional soliciting materials.

Please monitor our Investor Relations website at and check the website in advance of the Annual Meeting for any updates.
