Instead of printed proxy materials, some of the Company's stockholders will receive a notice in the mail with instructions on how to access proxy materials and vote on the Internet, and other stockholders will receive paper copies of the proxy materials. If you received a notice and would like paper copies of the proxy materials, please follow the instructions on your notice for requesting such copies free of charge.
