Our board of directors currently does not include a director that is “diverse” pursuant to Nasdaq listing rules. The Company is committed to ensuring that the Board’s composition appropriately reflects the current and anticipated needs of the Board and the Company. We have established transparent nomination procedures that are clearly communicated to our stakeholders. These procedures include a nomination committee responsible for identifying and evaluating potential board members based on qualifications, skills, experience, and expertise required of directors. Our commitment to a rigorous, inclusive, and transparent board selection process reflects our dedication to effective governance and responsible corporate stewardship. By adhering to these principles, we aim to build a board of directors that can guide our organization in achieving its strategic objectives while remaining accountable to our stakeholders. Our nominating committee considers directors of all backgrounds when evaluating director nominees, including those who identify as female, LGBTQ+ and underrepresented individuals based on national, racial, ethnic, indigenous, cultural, religious, and linguistic identity. However, our focus is on board members with a deep understanding of our business, and we believe that each of our current Board members has the experience in and understanding of our industry that we believe is a crucial requirement for each existing and prospective member of our Board.
