  • Effective March 29, 2010, Rule 14a-16 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, has been amended to provide more flexibility in the format and content of the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Notice”) that issuers and other soliciting persons must provide to shareholders in connection with proxy solicitations. The amended rules also attempt to facilitate the use of the notice and access rules by soliciting persons other than the issuer.
