A Special Meeting of Shareowners will be held on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, 10:00 a.m., local time, in Atlanta, Georgia.
In accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, instead of mailing a printed copy of the special meeting proxy materials to each shareowner, most of our shareowners are being furnished the special meeting proxy materials on the Internet. If you received a Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Statement for the Special Meeting (the "Notice) by mail, you will not receive a printed copy of the special meeting proxy materials. Instead, the Notice instructs you as to how you may access and review all of the important information contained in the special meeting proxy materials. The Notice also instructs you as to how you may submit your proxy on the Internet and how you may request a printed copy of the special meeting proxy materials.
Please note, if you plan to attend the meeting, you must request an admission ticket in advance. Please follow the advance registration instructions below and an admission card will be issued to you. Upon arrival at the meeting, you will be asked to present your admission card. You also will need to bring a photo ID to gain admission. Attendance at the meeting is limited to shareowners or their authorized named representatives. We reserve the right to limit the number of representatives who may attend the meeting.
