APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
On June 24, 2022, the Company engaged RSM as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. The engagement of RSM was approved by the Audit Committee of the Companys Board of Directors.
During the Companys two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period preceding the engagement of RSM, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted with RSM with respect to: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Companys consolidated financial statements, and no written or oral advice of RSM was provided to the Company that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions related thereto), or any reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
Please note that any proxy card that you requested or that we elected to deliver has not changed and may still be used to vote your shares in connection with the Annual Meeting. If you have already submitted your vote, you do not need to take any further action. Information on how to vote your shares and how to change your vote or revoke your proxy is contained in the Proxy Statement. The Company urges stockholders to vote their shares prior to the reconvening of the Annual Meeting at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time on July 8, 2022 by using one of the methods described in the Proxy Statement.
