Copies of the Notice Packet will be forwarded to those Potential Settlement Class Members by Epiq, the Claims Administrator. If you have additional names and addresses for the earlier Certified Class Period that you did not previously provide, you must forward those names and addresses to Epiq. Additionally, as noted above, even if you previously provided names and addresses of potential Certified Class Members, you must now also determine if there were persons or entities in the Class Period that were not included in the initial request and, if so, forward those names and addresses to Epiq.

Please note, in the Notice of Pendency you were advised that if you elected to forward the notice, you must retain your mailing records for use in connection with any further notices that may be provided in the Action. Additionally, as noted above, you must now also determine if you purchased or otherwise acquired Wilmington Trust common stock during the Class Period, including all purchased shares of Wilmington Trust common stock issued in the Offering, that were not included in the initial request and, if so, email Epiq with the number of additional Notice Packets that you require for forwarding to these newly identified potential Settlement Class Members.
