For our 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders we have adopted a virtual annual meeting. Our Annual Meeting will be held solely via the Internet at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VSH2023 on Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at 9:00 AM Eastern Daylight Savings Time. Stockholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person.
Participation and Voting
Stockholders will be able to participate online, vote their shares of common stock and Class B common stock electronically, and submit questions during the Annual Meeting. To participate, stockholders will need the control number on the proxy card or voting instruction form included in the proxy materials previously delivered to them. Stockholders will not receive a new proxy card or voting instruction form reflecting the change to a virtual meeting. Stockholders who received their proxy materials electronically will be able to locate their control number in the e-mail they received. Stockholders who are "beneficial stockholders" who hold their shares through a broker, bank or other nominee and who no longer have access to their control number may obtain their control number from their broker, bank or other nominee.
The Annual Meeting will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time on May 23, 2023. We encourage shareholders to access the Annual Meeting web site prior to the start time. Online access will begin at 8:45 a.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time.
Those without a control number may attend as guests of the meeting, but they will not have the option to vote or ask questions during the virtual event.
Proxy Voting in Advance of the Annual Meeting
Whether or not stockholders plan to attend the virtual Annual Meeting, all stockholders are encouraged to vote their shares in advance through www.proxyvote.com toll-free phone number, or mail, as communicated in the previously-distributed proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. While voting in advance is not necessary, it will ensure stockholder representation at the meeting. Stockholders who vote in advance by proxy will retain their right to change their vote by attending and voting at the virtual Annual Meeting.
Questions pertinent to the Annual Meeting may be submitted throughout the Annual Meeting on the virtual meeting platform. To ask a question during the Annual Meeting, stockholders may type their questions into the “Ask a Question” field and click “Submit.” We will post summaries of pertinent questions complying with the rules of order for the Annual Meeting, and our answers to those questions, on our Investor Relations website after the meeting.
Our rules of order and other materials for the Annual Meeting will be available at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/VSH2023 .
