On March 25, 2022, we filed our definitive proxy statement relating to our 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, which names each of our current directors as nominees for election as directors.

Our Corporate Governance Principles provide that (i) in addition to service on the Board, directors may not serve on more than three public company boards and (ii) a director who is a CEO of a public company may serve on the board of that company and only one other public company board of directors.

The Board of Directors has adopted a policy that, in connection with reviewing the qualifications of and making recommendations to the Board regarding nominees for election as directors at each annual meeting of stockholders, the Governance and Nominating Committee will annually evaluate each candidate's prior service on and contributions to the Board, including consideration of each candidate's public company leadership positions and other outside commitments. All of our directors are currently in compliance with our overboarding policy.
