Can the board please explain how it plans to deal with the fact that appointed directors do not contribute towards quorum for an AGMM – and we cannot elect directors outside of an AGMM – as per the bylaws.  As such, while these appointees increase board capacity – they do not solve the AGMM quorum problem.
