- A Proxy must be signed by the Stockholder with their name signed exactly as written on their share certificate or certificates.

- While most states do not require the signing of a Proxy to be witnessed or notarized, taking these steps provides additional assurance that the Proxy will withstand challenges to its validity.

- Be sure to instruct the proxy as to how the shares should be voted.
- The Proxy is effective until the end of term date specified on the document.
