ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
To Be Held On October 20, 2023
The enclosed Proxy is solicited by the Board of Directors (the “Board of Directors”) of Greenpro Capital Corp, a Nevada corporation, for use at our Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Meeting”) to be held on Friday, October 20, 2023 at the offices of the Company at B-23A-02, G-Vestor Tower, Pavilion Embassy, 200 Jalan Ampang, 50450 W.P. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and any adjournments thereof. The Board of Directors has set the close of business on September 8, 2023, as the record date (the “Record Date”) for the determination of stockholders entitled to vote at the Meeting. A stockholder executing and returning a proxy has the power to revoke it at any time before it is exercised by filing a later-dated proxy with, or other communication to, the Secretary of the Company or by attending the Meeting and voting in person. It is anticipated that this Proxy Statement will be mailed to our stockholders on or about September 19, 2023. References to the “Company,” “us,” “we,” or “our,” refer to Greenpro Capital Corp.
The Annual Meeting is for the purpose of considering and voting:
|1.||To elect the directors. Our Board of Directors intends to present for election the following six nominees: (1) Lee, Chong Kuang, (2) Loke Che Chan, Gilbert, (3) Chuchottaworn, Srirat, (4) Louis, Ramesh Ruben, (5) Glendening, Brent Lewis and (6) Bringuier, Christophe Philippe Roland;|
|2.||To ratify the appointment of JP CENTURION & PARTNERS PLT (“Centurion”) as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023; and|
|3.||To transact such other business as may properly come before the Annual Meeting and any postponement(s) or adjournment(s) thereof.|
In the event that a quorum is not present at the annual meeting, you may also be asked to vote upon a proposal to adjourn or postpone the annual meeting to solicit additional proxies.
Only stockholders of record as of the Record Date will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting and any adjournments thereof. As of the Record Date, 7,575,813 shares of our common stock, par value $.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), were issued and outstanding. The holders of our Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share.
Voting Rights and Quorum
Each share of our common stock is entitled to one vote. The presence in person or representation by proxy of holders of at least one third of the shares of our common stock issued and outstanding as of the close of business on the Record Date will constitute a quorum at the annual meeting. If a share is represented for any purpose at the meeting, it is deemed to be present for the transaction of all business. Abstentions and broker non-votes are counted as present for the purpose of determining the presence or absence of a quorum for the transaction of business. In the event that a quorum is not present at the annual meeting, it is expected that the annual meeting will be adjourned or postponed to solicit additional proxies.
Each item to be acted upon at the meeting requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of our common stock represented at the meeting in person or by proxy and entitled to vote on the item, assuming that a quorum is present or represented at the meeting. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by stockholders entitled to vote for directors at the Meeting. A properly executed proxy marked “WITHHOLD” with respect to the election of one or more directors will not be voted with respect to the director or directors indicated and will have the same effect as a vote cast against such director. With respect to the other proposals, a properly executed proxy marked “ABSTAIN,” although counted for purposes of determining whether there is a quorum, will not be voted. Accordingly, an abstention will have the same effect as a vote cast against a proposal. Under Nevada law, a broker non-vote will be treated as not being voted and will have the same effect as a vote cast against a proposal.
A “broker non-vote” occurs when a broker, bank, or other holder of record holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular proposal because that holder (i) has not received instructions from the beneficial owner and (ii) does not have discretionary voting power for that particular item.
If you are a beneficial owner and you do not give instructions to your broker, bank, or other holder of record, such holder of record will be entitled to vote the shares with respect to “routine” items but will not be permitted to vote the shares with respect to “non-routine” items (those shares are treated as “broker non-votes”). If you are a beneficial owner, your broker, bank, or other holder of record has discretion to vote your shares on the proposals to ratify the appointment of Centurion as our independent registered public accounting firm if the holder of record does not receive voting instructions from you. However, such holder of record may not vote your shares on the election of directors without your voting instructions on those proposal. Accordingly, without your voting instructions on those proposals, a broker non-vote will occur. We encourage you to provide instructions to your bank, brokerage firm, or other nominee by voting your proxy. This action ensures that your shares will be voted in accordance with your wishes at the annual meeting.
Voting and Revocation of Proxies
After carefully reading and considering the information contained in this proxy statement, you may attend the annual meeting and vote your shares in person, by telephone or over the Internet. You may also grant your proxy to vote by returning a signed, dated and marked proxy card, by telephone or over the Internet.
Unless you specify to the contrary, all of your shares represented by valid proxies will be voted.
|●||“FOR” all director nominees; and|
|●||“FOR” the appointment of Centurion as our independent registered public accounting firm.|
The persons you name as proxies may propose and vote for one or more adjournments or postponements of the annual meeting, including adjournments or postponements to permit further solicitations of proxies. Such proxy holders may also vote in its discretion on any other matters that properly come before the annual meeting.
Until exercised at the annual meeting, you can revoke your proxy and change your vote in any of the following ways:
|●||by delivering written notification to us at our principal executive offices at B-23A-02, G-Vestor Tower, Pavilion Embassy, 200 Jalan Ampang, 50450 W.P. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Attention: Corporate Secretary;|
|●||by changing your vote or revoking your proxy by telephone or over the Internet;|
|●||if you hold shares in your name, by attending the annual meeting and voting in person (your attendance at the meeting will not, by itself, revoke your proxy; you must vote in person at the meeting);|
|●||if you have instructed a broker or bank to vote your shares, by following the directions received from your broker or bank to change those instructions; or|
|●||if you hold shares in street name with your broker or by a nominee, by obtaining a legal proxy from the institution that holds your shares, attending the annual meeting and voting in person (your attendance at the meeting will not, by itself, revoke your proxy; you must vote in person at the meeting).|
If you decide to vote by completing, signing, dating and returning a proxy card, you should retain a copy of the voter control number found on the proxy card in the event that you decide later to change or revoke your proxy.
Solicitation of Proxies
The accompanying proxy is being solicited by our Board of Directors. The entire cost of soliciting proxies will be borne by the Company. The costs of solicitation will include the costs of supplying necessary additional copies of the solicitation materials to beneficial owners of shares held of record by brokers, dealers, banks, trustees, and their nominees, including the reasonable expenses of such record holders for completing the mailing of such materials to such beneficial owners. Solicitation of proxies may also include solicitation by telephone, fax, electronic mail, or personal solicitations by directors, officers, or employees of the Company. No additional compensation will be paid for any such services.
SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND
RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS
The following table sets forth, as of September 8, 2023, the Record Date, certain information concerning the beneficial ownership of our common stock by (i) each stockholder known by us to own beneficially five percent or more of our outstanding common stock or series a common stock; (ii) each director; (iii) each named executive officer; and (iv) all of our executive officers and directors as a group, and their percentage ownership and voting power.
The information presented below regarding beneficial ownership of our voting securities has been presented in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and is not necessarily indicative of ownership for any other purpose. Under these rules, a person is deemed to be a “beneficial owner” of a security if that person has or shares the power to vote or direct the voting of the security or the power to dispose or direct the disposition of the security. A person is deemed to own beneficially any security as to which such person has the right to acquire sole or shared voting or investment power within sixty (60) days through the conversion or exercise of any convertible security, warrant, option, or other right. More than one (1) person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities. The percentage of beneficial ownership by any person as of a particular date is calculated by dividing the number of shares beneficially owned by such person, which includes the number of shares as to which such person has the right to acquire voting or investment power within sixty (60) days, by the sum of the number of shares outstanding as of such date. Consequently, the denominator used for calculating such percentage may be different for each beneficial owner. Except as otherwise indicated below and under applicable community property laws, we believe that the beneficial owners of our common stock listed below have sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares shown.
The calculations in the table below are based on 7,575,813 shares of our Common Stock, issued and outstanding as of the Record Date.

Shares of Common Stock that a person has the right to acquire beneficial ownership of upon the exercise or conversion of options, convertible stock, warrants or other securities that are currently exercisable or convertible or that will become exercisable or convertible within 60 days of the Record Date, are deemed to be beneficially owned by the person holding such securities for the purpose of computing the number of shares beneficially owned and percentage of ownership of such person, but are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person.|

Audit Committee Report
The Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements with management. The Audit Committee has discussed with the independent auditors the matters required to be discussed by the statement on Auditing Standards No. 61, as amended and adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Rule 3200T. It has received the written disclosures and the letter from the independent accountant required by applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding the independent accountant’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence and has discussed with the independent accountant the independent accountant’s independence. Based upon the foregoing review and discussions, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board that the audited consolidated financial statements be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. Our Annual Report on Form 10-K was filed with the SEC on March 31, 2023.

Bringuier Christophe Philippe Roland
Our Compensation Committee was established on March 17, 2017 and currently consists of Mr. Louis Ramesh Ruben, Mr. Glendening Brent Lewis and Mr. Bringuier Christophe Philippe Roland. Mr. Louis serves as chairman of the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee did not hold any meetings during 2022 but scheduled the 2022 compensation related matters for review and discussion to a meeting held on February 24, 2023. The Compensation Committee will be responsible for, among other matters:
|●||reviewing and approving, or recommending to the Board of Directors to approve the compensation of our CEO and other executive officers and directors reviewing key employee compensation goals, policies, plans and programs;|
|●||administering incentive and equity-based compensation;|
|●||reviewing and approving employment agreements and other similar arrangements between us and our executive officers; and|

Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee
Our Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee was established on March 17, 2017 and currently consists of Mr. Glendening Brent Lewis and Mr. Louis Ramesh Ruben. Mr. Glendening serves as chairman of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee. The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee did not hold any meetings during 2022 but scheduled the 2022 corporate governance and nominating related matters for review and discussion to a meeting held on February 24, 2023. The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee will be responsible for, among other matters:
|●||selecting or recommending for selection candidates for directorships;|
|●||evaluating the independence of directors and director nominees;|
|●||reviewing and making recommendations regarding the structure and composition of our Board and the board committees;|
|●||developing and recommending to the board corporate governance principles and practices;|
|●||reviewing and monitoring the Company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics; and|
|●||overseeing the evaluation of the Company’s management.|
Identifying and Evaluating Nominees
In considering candidates for membership on the Board of Directors, the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee will take into consideration the needs of the Board of Directors and the candidate’s qualifications. The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee will request such information as:
|●||The name and address of the proposed candidate;|
|●||The proposed candidates resume or a listing of his or her qualifications to be a director of the Company;|
|●||A description of any relationship that could affect such person’s qualifying as an independent director, including identifying all other public company board and committee memberships;|
|●||A confirmation of such person’s willingness to serve as a director if selected by the Board of Directors; and|
|●||Any information about the proposed candidate that would, under the federal proxy rules, be required to be included in the Company’s proxy statement if such person were a nominee.|
Once a person has been identified by the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee as a potential candidate, the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee may collect and review publicly available information regarding the person to assess whether the person should be considered further. Generally, if the person expresses a willingness to be considered and to serve on the Board of Directors and the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee believes that the candidate has the potential to be a good candidate, the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee would seek to gather information from or about the candidate, including through one or more interviews as appropriate and review his or her accomplishments and qualifications generally, including in light of any other candidates that the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee may be considering. The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee’s evaluation process does not vary based on whether the candidate is recommended by a shareholder.
The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee will, from time to time, seek to identify potential candidates for director nominees and will consider potential candidates proposed by the Board of Directors and by management of the Company. There is no specific board diversity policy in place presently.
Communications with Our Board
Stockholders and interested parties who wish to contact our Board, a committee thereof, the presiding non-management director of executive sessions or any individual director are invited to do so by writing to:
Board of Directors of Greenpro Capital Corp.
c/o Corporate Secretary
B-23A-02, G-Vestor Tower,
Pavilion Embassy, 200 Jalan Ampang,
50450 W.P. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
All communications will be forwarded to our Board of Directors, the specified committee or the specified individual director, as appropriate.
Board Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight
Mr. Loke Che Chan Gilbert holds the positions of chief financial officer and chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company. The Board believes that Mr. Loke’s services as both chief financial officer and chairman of the Board is in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders. Mr. Loke possesses detailed and in-depth knowledge of the issues, opportunities and challenges facing the Company in its business and is thus best positioned to develop agendas that ensure that the Board’s time and attention are focused on the most critical matters relating to the business of the Company. His combined role enables decisive leadership, ensures clear accountability, and enhances the Company’s ability to communicate its message and strategy clearly and consistently to the Company’s shareholders, employees and customers.
The Board of Directors has not designated a lead director. Given the limited number of directors comprising the Board of Directors, the independent directors call and plan their executive sessions collaboratively and, between meetings of the Board of Directors, communicate with management and one another directly. Under these circumstances, the directors believe designating a lead director to take on responsibility for functions in which they all currently participate might detract from rather than enhance performance of their responsibilities as directors.
Management is responsible for assessing and managing risk, subject to oversight by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors oversees our risk management policies and risk appetite, including operational risks and risks relating to our business strategy and transactions. Various committees of the Board assist the Board in this oversight responsibility in their respective areas of expertise.
|●||The Audit Committee assists the Board with the oversight of our financial reporting, independent auditors and internal controls. It is charged with identifying any flaws in business management and recommending remedies, detecting fraud risks and implementing anti-fraud measures. The audit committee further discusses our policies with respect to risk assessment and management with respect to financial reporting.|
|●||The Compensation Committee oversees compensation, retention, succession and other human resources-related issues and risks.|
|●||The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee overviews risks relating to our governance policies and initiatives.|
There are no family relationships between any of our directors or executive officers.
Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings
No executive officer or director is a party in a legal proceeding adverse to us or any of our subsidiaries or has a material interest adverse to us or any of our subsidiaries.
No executive officer or director has been involved in the last ten years in any of the following:
|●||Any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business or property of such person, or of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time;|
|●||Any conviction in a criminal proceeding or being subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses);|
|●||Being subject to any order, judgment, or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities;|
|●||Being found by a court of competent jurisdiction (in a civil action), the SEC or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended, or vacated;|

|●||Being the subject of or a party to any sanction or order, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any self-regulatory organization (as defined in Section 3(a)(26) of the Exchange Act, any registered entity (as defined in Section 1(a)(29) of the Commodity Exchange Act), or any equivalent exchange, association, entity or organization that has disciplinary authority over its members or persons associated with a member).|

Our policy is that a contract or transaction either between the Company and a director, or between a director and another company in which he is financially interested is not necessarily void or void-able if the relationship or interest is disclosed or known to the Board of Directors and the Board of Directors is entitled to vote on the issue.

As of December 31, 2022, and 2021, other investments in related parties were $5,406,106 and $9,621,935, respectively.

Some of the related parties are either controlled by or under common control of Mr. Loke Che Chan Gilbert or Mr. Lee Chong Kuang, executive officers and directors of the Company.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who own more than 10% of our common stock, to file reports regarding ownership of, and transactions in, our securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission and to provide us with copies of those filings. Based solely on our review of the copies of such forms furnished to us and written representations by our officers and directors regarding their compliance with applicable reporting requirements under Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act, we believe that all Section 16(a) filing requirements for our executive officers, directors and 10% stockholders were met during the year ended December 31, 2022.
Summary Compensation Table
Set forth below is information regarding the compensation paid during the years ended December 31, 2022, and 2021 to our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, who are collectively referred to as “named executive officers” elsewhere in this Annual Report.
|Name and Principal Position||Year||Salary ($)||
|Lee Chong Kuang||2022||296,000||26,000||322,000|
|Chief Executive Officer and President||2021||299,000||26,000||325,000|

Each of Mr. Loke Che Chan Gilbert, our Chief Financial Officer, Secretary, Treasurer and Director, and Mr. Lee Chong Kuang, our Chief Executive Officer and Director, signed an employment agreement on August 31, 2023.

Under the terms of the agreements, each of Messrs. Loke and Lee was entitled to receive a monthly salary of $13,000 and a monthly housing allowance of $2,000, plus one month’s additional salary and housing allowance by the end of each year. All of these were payable in the equivalent amount of Hong Kong Dollars. Any variances were mainly due to fluctuation of currency exchange.
Messrs. Loke and Lee are entitled to reimbursement for reasonable travel and other out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with their services on our behalf. The employment agreements also contain normal and customary terms relating to confidentiality, indemnification, non-solicitation, and ownership of intellectual property.
Outstanding Equity Awards at Fiscal Year-End

All the independent directors are also the members of Audit Committee.
We currently have no plan for compensating our executive directors for their services in their capacity as directors, although we may elect to issue stock options or provide cash compensation to such persons from time to time in the future. However, we are compensating the independent directors who serve on the Board. These independent directors are entitled to the reimbursement for reasonable travel and other out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with attendance at meetings of our board of directors. Our board of directors may award special remuneration to any director undertaking any special services on our behalf other than services ordinarily required of a director.
Our Board of Directors unanimously recommends that you vote “FOR” all of the nominees listed above.
PROPOSAL NO. 2
RATIFICATION OF SELECTION OF AUDITORS
The Board of Directors has appointed JP CENTURION & PARTNERS PLT (“Centurion”) to audit our consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023. Centurion has served as our independent registered public accounting firm since July 21, 2021. We do not expect representatives of Centurion to be present at our annual meeting of the shareholders.
On July 15, 2021, JLKZ CPA LLP (“JLKZ”) informed us of their decision to resign as our independent registered public accounting firm citing constraints in resources to satisfactorily fulfil that role as the reason for its resignation. The report of JLKZ on our financial statements for the past fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 contained no adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and was not modified. The decision to change the independent accountant was approved and accepted by our Board of Directors on July 21, 2021.
We had no disagreements with JLKZ, on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of JLKZ, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of such disagreements in its report on our financial statements for such period.
During our fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and through JLKZ’s resignation, there had been no reportable events as defined under Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
Effective July 21, 2021, we engaged Centurion as our new independent registered public accounting firm. During the two most recent fiscal years and through the date of the engagement of Centurion, we did not consult with Centurion regarding either (1) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements, or (2) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K). In approving the selection of Centurion as our new independent registered public accounting firm, our Board of Directors considered all relevant factors.
We are not required to submit the selection of our independent registered public accounting firm for stockholder approval. If the stockholders do not ratify the selection of Centurion as our independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023, our Board of Directors will evaluate what would be in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders and consider whether to select new independent auditors for the current fiscal year or whether to wait until the completion of the audit for the current fiscal year before changing independent auditors.
The following is an aggregate of fees billed for each of the last two fiscal years for professional services rendered by our current and prior principal accountants.
|ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES||2022||2021|
|All other fees||-||-|
The category of “Audit fees” includes fees for our annual audit, quarterly reviews and services rendered in connection with regulatory filings with the SEC, such as the issuance of comfort letters and consents.
The category of “Audit-related fees” includes employee benefit plan audits, internal control reviews and accounting consultation.
The category of “Tax services” includes tax compliance, tax advice, tax planning.
The category of “All other fees” generally includes advisory services related to accounting rules and regulations.
The policies and procedures contained in the Audit Committee Charter provide that the Committee must pre-approve the audit services, audit-related services and non-audit services provided by the independent auditors and the provision for such services by JP Centurion & Partners PLT (2022: $165,000 and 2021: $145,000) and JLKZ CPA LLP (2021: $20,000) were compatible with the maintenance of the firm’s independence in the conduct of its audits.
Pre-approval Policies and Procedures
Consistent with SEC policies regarding auditor independence, the Audit Committee has responsibility for appointing, setting compensation and overseeing the work of the independent auditor. Our Audit Committee has adopted certain pre-approval policies and procedures which were filed as Exhibit 99.2 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 filed with the SEC on March 31, 2023.
Our Board of Directors unanimously recommends that you vote “FOR” the proposal to ratify the appointment of JP CENTURION & PARTNERS PLT as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023.
Stockholder proposals intended to be included in the proxy statement for the next annual meeting must be received by Company by May 22, 2024. The persons authorized by the form of proxy to be sent in connection with the solicitation of proxies on behalf of Company’s Board of Directors for next year’s annual meeting will vote in their discretion as to any matter of which Company has not received notice by August 5, 2024. The form and substance of these proposals must satisfy the requirements established by the Company’s Bylaws and the SEC, and the timing for the submission of any such proposals may be subject to change as a result of changes in SEC rules and regulations.
DELIVERY OF PROXY MATERIALS
Our annual report to stockholders for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, including audited financial statements, accompanies this Proxy Statement. Copies of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2022 are available from the Company without charge upon written request of a stockholder. Copies of these materials are also available online through the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov. The Company may satisfy SEC rules regarding delivery of proxy statements and annual reports by delivering a single proxy statement and annual report to an address shared by two or more Company stockholders.

In order to take advantage of this opportunity, the Company may deliver only one proxy statement and annual report to multiple stockholders who share an address, unless contrary instructions are received prior to the mailing date. Similarly, if you share an address with another stockholder and have received multiple copies of our proxy materials, you may write or call us at the address and phone number below to request delivery of a single copy of these materials in the future. We undertake to deliver promptly upon written or oral request a separate copy of the proxy statement and/or annual report, as requested, to a stockholder at a shared address to which a single copy of these documents was delivered.

These forward- looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our business, anticipated financial or operational results and objectives.

These statements, by their nature, involve substantial risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond our control, and actual results may differ materially depending on a variety of important factors, including factors discussed in this and other filings of ours with the SEC.
The Company is subject to the informational requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and, in accordance therewith, files reports and other information with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The SEC maintains an Internet site that contains reports, proxy and information statements and other information regarding the Company and other registrants that file electronically with the SEC at http://www.sec.gov.
