To access the online meeting, registered shareholders will need to enter the 16-digit control number appearing on their Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials or paper proxy card. If your shares are held in “street name” through a broker, bank or other nominee, in order to participate in the online meeting you must first obtain a legal proxy from your broker, bank or other nominee reflecting the number of Masonite shares you held as of March 16, 2020, your name and email address.

The online meeting website will provide technical assistance to shareholders experiencing issues accessing the meeting. The technical support contact information will appear on the meeting website prior to the start of the meeting.
Due to the potential risks of aiding the spread of COVID-19 by gathering at the meeting, restrictions on travel and on how the meeting itself is held and conducted, Masonite believes that the safest way to ensure all shareholders can exercise their rights at the meeting is by participating online rather than in person.
We urge shareholders to vote and submit proxies in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the previously distributed proxy materials for the meeting. Shareholders who have sent in proxies or voted via telephone or internet do not need to take any further action, unless they would like to revoke or change their vote.
The proxy card and voting instruction form included with previously distributed proxy materials will not be updated to reflect the change in meeting location and may continue be used to vote shares in connection with the meeting.
