(NYSE: KTB), a global lifestyle apparel company, with a portfolio led by two of the world’s most iconic consumer brands, Wrangler® and Lee®, today announced that the format of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders has been changed to a virtual-only meeting, instead of an in-person meeting, due to continued public health precautions regarding in-person gatherings and to support the health and well-being of shareholders and company personnel given the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company has designed the format of the Annual Meeting to ensure that shareholders are afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate as they would at an in-person meeting, using online tools to ensure shareholder access and participation. To attend the Annual Meeting, shareholders must register in advance, using their control number and other information, at www.proxydocs.com/KTB prior to the deadline of Friday, April 17, 2020, at 5 p.m. EDT.
