On December 8, 2022, the Company, a Nevada corporation, held its 2022 Annual
Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) in Houston, Texas at the
Company’s principal executive offices. The stockholders of the Company
considered and voted upon the three proposals listed below, each of which is
more fully described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on October 27, 2022. Holders of
27,744,980 shares of common stock of the Company, representing approximately 83%
of the Company’s 33,546,236 issued and outstanding shares of common stock as of
the October 14, 2022 record date, were present in person or by proxy at the
Annual Meeting, which constituted a quorum for such meeting. The final voting
results with respect to each of the proposals is set forth below.

Proposal 1. The Company’s stockholders elected six directors, each to serve a
one-year term until the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, or until their
respective successors are elected and qualified. The results of the voting for
each nominee were as follows:

Name of Nominee For % of Vote* Withheld Broker Non-Votes Myra C. Bierria 20,357,841 97.1 % 610,881 6,776,258 Edward J. DiPaolo 18,201,035 86.8 % 2,767,667 6,776,258 William E. Dozier 19,666,947 93.8 % 1,301,755 6,776,258 Marjorie A. Hargrave 20,093,290 95.8 % 875,432 6,776,258 Robert S. Herlin 18,887,084 90.1 % 2,081,618 6,776,258 Kelly W. Loyd 20,154,876 96.1 % 813,846 6,776,258

No other person received any votes.

Proposal 2. The stockholders ratified the appointment of Moss Adams LLP, as the
Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 2023. The voting results were as follows:

For % of Vote* Against Abstain Broker Non-Votes
27,589,363 99.4 % 77,689 77,928


Proposal 3. The stockholders approved, on a non-binding advisory basis, the
compensation of the Company’s named

executive officers. The voting results were as follows:

For % of Vote* Against Abstain Broker Non-Votes
19,998,893 95.4 % 692,530 277,299 6,776,258

* Any broker non-votes count toward the determination of a quorum for the Annual
Meeting, but are excluded from the denominator in the calculation of the
percentage of shares voting. Abstentions are counted towards the tabulation of
votes cast on matters properly presented to the stockholders (except the
election of directors) and have the same effect as negative votes. Broker
non-votes are not counted as votes cast, and therefore they have no effect on
the outcome of the matters presented at the Annual Meeting.
