TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) announced today a change in the location of its 2020 annual meeting of stockholders. In light of public health guidelines regarding the coronavirus or COVID-19, the company’s annual meeting will be held solely by remote communication in a virtual only format. The previously announced date and time of the meeting (May 21, 2020, at 9:30 a.m. Central) will not change.
Stockholders at the close of business on the record date of March 30, 2020, are eligible to vote at the annual meeting. To be admitted to the meeting at www.meetingcenter.io/253371200, stockholders must enter the password WPX2020, along with the control number found on their proxy card.
Once admitted to the annual meeting, stockholders will be able to ask questions and vote during the annual meeting by following the instructions on the annual meeting website.
Stockholders who hold shares through a broker, bank or other nominee, and who are therefore “Beneficial Holders,” may join the annual meeting in one of two ways:
- Beneficial Holders may join as a “guest” in listen-only mode; or
- Beneficial Holders who have obtained a legal proxy from the record holder and who wish to ask questions or vote other than by submission of a Voter Instruction Form, may join as a “Stockholder” but must register in advance by 4 p.m. Central on May 18, 2020. A legal proxy can be obtained by logging into the voting site listed on your Voter Instruction Form and clicking on “Vote in person at the meeting” or requesting one through the broker, bank or other nominee who is the registered holder of the shares. An image of the legal proxy, in the Beneficial Holder’s name, from the broker, bank or other nominee that holds the shares must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and the Beneficial Holder’s address must be provided. When this process is completed, Computershare will provide a Beneficial Holder with an annual meeting control number to use to ask questions or vote at the annual meeting.
All stockholders are urged to vote and submit proxies in advance of the annual meeting by one of the methods described in the annual meeting proxy materials.
The proxy materials contain important information about the matters on which stockholders are being asked to vote. Stockholders are also urged to submit proxies as early as possible to avoid COVID-19-related processing delays. The proxy card included with the annual meeting proxy materials will not be updated to reflect the above information and may continue to be used to vote shares at the annual meeting.
