To Our Shareholders:

At the date of this mailing, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around the world and throughout the United States, including Florida. We are facing an unpredictable and volatile situation with respect to the progress of this deadly virus. Efforts to slow the virus’s spread include steps taken by national, state and local governments to restrict and, in some instances, prohibit travel and group gatherings. We fully support these steps, as the health and safety of our shareholders, employees and community are of paramount concern. At the date of this letter, Governor Ron DeSantis has issued a new executive order requesting all Floridians to stay at home. Under the order, the governor is requiring “all Floridians to limit movements and interactions outside their home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”

Our Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders and 2020 Proxy Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 19, 2020 (the “Proxy Statement”), and notice of availability of the Proxy Statement via the Internet was mailed to our shareholders on or about March 19, 2020. As set forth in the Proxy Statement, our annual meeting of shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) will be held on April 29, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. To minimize the risk to shareholders, employees and the community, (i) we have made arrangements for the Annual Meeting to be available via teleconference and webcast; and (ii) we will no longer be able to allow shareholder to physically attend the Annual Meeting. Instructions for accessing the teleconference and webcast are provided below. Our independent directors will participate in the Annual Meeting via teleconference and thus will not be physically present at the Annual Meeting.

Our decision to no longer allow shareholders to physically attend the Annual Meeting was made with the greatest care. After extended discussions with management, we determined that gathering posed a health threat to both the participants and the greater community. We cannot ask our employees to risk infection in the current pandemic. Therefore, we will limit attendance to John P. Albright and the smallest number of our officers possible.

Please note that shareholders will not be able to vote or revoke a proxy through the teleconference or webcast, nor participate actively other than to participate in the Q&A session after completion of the business portion of the meeting. Therefore, to ensure that your vote is counted at the Annual Meeting, we strongly encourage you to vote your shares in one of the manners indicated in the previously distributed proxy materials, or through your broker, bank or other nominee’s voting instruction form. Shareholders of record may no longer attend the meeting and revoke their proxy. As such, we strongly encourage you to vote your shares prior to the Annual Meeting.

We appreciate your continued support, and we hope that you and yours will stay safe and healthy. We are closely monitoring developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, and we urge all stakeholders, including our shareholders, to follow recommendations provided by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
