A majority of the votes cast by shareholders at the Companys
Annual Meeting of Shareholders voted, on an advisory basis, to
hold future advisory votes on compensation of named executive
officers every year. After consideration of this result, the
Board of Trustees determined that the Company will hold an
advisory vote on compensation of its named executive officers
every year until the next required advisory vote on the frequency
of the advisory vote on compensation of named executive officers,
which will occur no later than the Companys 2023 Annual Meeting
of Shareholders.
