Shareholders of record at the close of business on April 15, 2020, the record date for the 2020 Annual Meeting, are entitled to participate in the virtual meeting and will need their assigned 16-digit control number to vote shares electronically. Additionally, these shareholders can submit questions related to the matters to be voted on at the 2020 Annual Meeting during the live webcast of the meeting by using the instructions on the virtual meeting website. The control number can be found on the proxy card, voting instruction form, or other previously received notices. Those without a control number may attend the virtual meeting as guests, but will not have the option to vote or ask questions. Technical assistance will be available for attendees who experience an issue accessing the virtual meeting. Contact information for technical support will appear on the virtual meeting website prior to the start of the 2020 Annual Meeting.
Whether or not shareholders plan to attend the 2020 Annual Meeting, all shareholders are encouraged to vote their shares and submit their proxy in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the previously distributed proxy materials for the 2020 Annual Meeting. The proxy card included with the previously distributed proxy materials will not be updated to reflect the change to a virtual meeting format and may continue to be used to vote shares in connection with the 2020 Annual Meeting. Shareholders who have already voted their shares do not need to vote them again because of this change in meeting format. Any shareholder who has not voted prior to the day of the 2020 Annual Meeting may do so by following the applicable voting instructions on the virtual meeting website.
A list of shareholders entitled to vote at the 2020 Annual Meeting will be available for review by interested shareholders at the offices of the Company, 233 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 280, Santa Monica, CA 90401, beginning on June 5, 2020.
