As further described in the Proxy Statement, the merger agreement relating to the merger of the Company and CIM Income NAV, Inc. (“CINAV”) required the Company’s board of directors to take such action as necessary to cause one independent director serving as a member of the board of directors of CIM Income NAV to be elected to the board of directors. Since the merger of CINAV into one of the Company’s subsidiaries closed prior to our Annual Meeting, the board of directors elected Roger D. Snell to the board on December 22, 2021. Mr. Snell was included as an additional nominee for director for election until the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until his successor is duly elected and qualifies. A proxy holder identified in the proxy card included as part of the Proxy Statement materials mailed to stockholders cast the 191,749,846.91 votes for the election of Mr. Snell.
