To Our Shareholders:
I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to join us at our Annual Meeting of Shareholders, which will be held on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., local time, at the corporate headquarters of the Company located at 1332 Blue Hills Avenue, Bloomfield, Connecticut. The meeting will be held in the cafeteria located in Building 19 on our Bloomfield campus. Appropriate signage will be in place directing you to the cafeteria the day of the meeting.
At this year’s meeting, you will be asked to (i) elect three Class III directors, (ii) approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of our named executive officers, (iii) cast an advisory vote on the frequency of future shareholder advisory votes on executive compensation, (iv) approve an amendment to the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation declassifying the Board of Directors, and (v) ratify the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent auditors. We will also discuss the financial performance of the Company during 2016.
Last year, we were fortunate to have over 94% of the Company's outstanding shares represented at the meeting. We hope to have a similar turnout this year. You can vote your shares via the Internet or by using a toll-free telephone number. Instructions for using these convenient services appear in the Proxy Statement. If you are receiving a hard copy of the proxy materials, you can also vote your shares by marking your votes on the proxy card, signing and dating it and mailing it promptly using the envelope provided.
Your voice is important to us, and we encourage you to attend the meeting in person. If you are unable to attend, we urge you to vote your shares.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, we thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
Sincerely,

http://api.tenkwizard.com/cgi/image?quest=1&rid=23&ipage=11444549&doc=17
