A registered stockholder is one that is shown on the records of the Company.

Individual stockholders whose shares are held in street name should contact their broker for more information on any dividend reinvestment plan changes.

Dividends are generally taxable to U.S. stockholders as ordinary income or capital gains. We will send to each of our U.S. registered stockholders, as promptly as possible after the end of each calendar year, a Form 1099-DIV, which details the amounts includible in such U.S. stockholder’s taxable income for such year as ordinary income and as long-term capital gains.
