- Before the meeting: Beginning May 20, stockholders may submit a question after logging in to www.proxyvote.com with their 16-digit control number and typing the question in the “Question for Management” field.

We will dedicate an hour of the meeting to responding to stockholder questions and will aim to answer as many stockholder questions as possible within the time allotted. To that end, we ask that stockholders submit only one question for the meeting.
If we receive substantially similar questions, we will do our best to group such questions together and provide a single response to save time and avoid repetition. Additionally, we will post responses to questions we don’t have time to address during the meeting on our website. We reserve the right to edit inappropriate language and to exclude questions that are personal matters, not pertinent to meeting matters, do not comply with the meeting rules of conduct or are otherwise inappropriate.
We encourage all meeting participants to log in to the meeting early to test your computer system and ensure you can access the meeting. If you encounter technical difficulties accessing the meeting, please call the technical support number posted on the virtual annual meeting login page.
If the meeting cannot be completed due to technical difficulties, please check the investor page of our website for information about reconvening the meeting.

An electronic list of the stockholders of record will be available to stockholders during the meeting through the virtual annual meeting platform after logging in with your 16-digit control number.
