No Substitution

Definition:

Within the text on a proxy card are the words: "The shareholder appoints certain people (collectively, the proxy committee) with full power of substitution to vote the shares." If the security holder strikes out this phrase, the proxy cannot be voted if there is a change in the designated proxy committee.
