SANTA CLARITA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--California Resources Corporation (NYSE: CRC), an independent California-based oil and gas exploration and production company, announced today that due to the public health impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and to support the health and well-being of its employees and shareholders, the location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders has been changed. As previously announced, the Annual Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., Pacific Time.

The proxy card included with the proxy materials previously distributed will not be updated to reflect the change in location and may continue to be used to vote shares held by a shareholder in connection with the Annual Meeting.
Whether or not a shareholder plans to attend the Annual Meeting, all shareholders are urged to vote and submit their proxy in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting.
