PROPOSAL NO. 1 ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

 

On February 6, 2019, Mark A. Absher, advised the Company that he had determined to step down from all positions with the Company, including from the Company’s Board of Directors (“Board”), effective immediately and prior to the Annual Meeting and not stand for re-election at the Annual Meeting. As a result, Mr. Absher’s name has been withdrawn from nomination for re-election to the Board. The Board has determined that no other nominee for election at the Annual Meeting will be named in place of Mr. Absher.

 

VOTING MATTERS

 

Other than Mr. Absher, the nominees for election to the Board named in the Proxy Statement will stand for election at the Annual Meeting. The Company mailed and will make available a revised proxy card or voting instruction form online at:

 

http://xbrlfinancialwidget.com/?CIKNum=0001675634.

 

If you already returned your proxy card or provided voting instructions, you do not need to fill out and return the new proxy card or provide new voting instructions, unless you desire to change your previously submitted proxy card.

 

Shares represented by proxy cards or voting instructions returned before the Annual Meeting will be voted with respect to the nominees as instructed on the proxy card or voting instructions form, except for votes or voting instructions with respect to Mr. Absher, which will be disregarded because he is no longer standing for re-election.

 

None of the other agenda items presented in the Proxy Statement are affected by this First Proxy Supplement, and shares represented by proxy cards or voting instruction forms returned before the Annual Meeting will be voted with respect to all other matters properly brought before the Annual Meeting as instructed on the proxy card or voting instruction form.

 

If you have not yet returned the WHITE proxy card distributed by the Company or submitted your voting instructions, please complete the WHITE proxy card or submit voting instructions as soon as possible, disregarding Mr. Absher’s name as a nominee for election as a director.

 

Information on how to vote your shares, or change or revoke your prior vote or voting instructions, is available in the Proxy Statement and in the Amendment No. 1 to the Proxy Statement. If you have already submitted your proxy card, you do not need to take any action unless you wish to change or revoke your vote.

 

Please vote your shares promptly by using the Internet or the telephone by following the instructions set forth on your WHITE proxy card. If you hold shares through a broker (i.e., in street name), you have the right to direct your broker how to vote your shares. Please contact your broker directly if you have questions about how to provide such instructions.

 

If you previously voted, you have the right to change your vote. Your later dated WHITE proxy card, or your vote at a later date by Internet or telephone, will revoke any prior proxy. Only your last dated proxy will count. If your shares are held for you by a broker, bank or nominee, you must contact the broker, bank or nominee to revoke a previously authorized proxy.
