The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board has approved a process for handling all communications received by the Company and addressed to members of the Board.
Under that process, the Corporate Secretary of the Company will review these communications and forward those communications as appropriate. Items that are unrelated to the duties and responsibilities of the Board will not be forwarded. These items include: business solicitation or advertisements; product-related inquiries; junk mail or mass mailings; resumes or other job-related inquiries; spam and unduly hostile, threatening, potentially illegal or similarly unsuitable communications.
Concerns relating to accounting, internal controls or auditing matters are immediately brought to the attention of the Company’s internal audit department and handled in accordance with the procedures established by the Audit Committee with respect to such matters.
