(the “Company”) has scheduled the Company’s next annual meeting of shareholders for December 18, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”) and established the close of business on October 30, 2017 as the record date for determining the shareholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting.

Since the date of the Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 calendar days from the anniversary date of the Company’s last annual meeting of shareholders, the Company is informing the shareholders of this change and the updated deadline for submitting any qualified shareholder proposal in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Company’s Amended and Restated By-laws.

A notice by a shareholder of any qualified shareholder proposal must be received by the Company at its principal executive offices at 2929 California Street, Torrance, California 90503, and directed to the attention of the Secretary of the Company, by November 13, 2017 in order to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement and form of proxy for the Annual Meeting.  Any such notice received after the close of business on November 13, 2017 will be considered untimely and not properly brought before the Annual Meeting.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
