At the Meeting, shareholders of the Company will be asked to vote on a slate of directors comprised of Chad Dust, Shabir Premji and Tyron Pfeifer. Messrs. Fard and Raymaker will not be standing for election as members of the Board of Directors at the Meeting and will therefore cease to be Directors at the conclusion of the Meeting.
