SIOUX FALLS, S.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Raven Industries, Inc. (the Company; NASDAQ:RAVN) announced today that it will conduct a live webcast of its Annual Meeting of Shareholders on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Central Time. The COVID-19 Coronavirus continues to spread around the world and throughout the United States, including South Dakota. The health and safety of Raven’s shareholders, team members, customers and communities are of paramount concern to the company’s Board of Directors and management. Rather than attending the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders in person, Raven is encouraging its shareholders to listen to the live webcast of the meeting.
Raven plans to hold the meeting at the physical location as presented in the Notice of 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders provided with the proxy materials. However, the company expects to follow an abbreviated format for the meeting and plans to keep the meeting as brief as possible. As such, the company expects only a limited number of Company representatives to attend and will follow social distancing guidelines as expressed by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
In addition, Raven encourages shareholders to recognize attending the meeting in person introduces extraordinary and unnecessary health and safety risks. In the event that someone would choose to attend the meeting in-person, the company asks that the attendee wear a face mask. As an alternative, Raven will conduct a live webcast of the meeting, and the company highly encourages access through the webcast or call-in numbers rather than attending the meeting in person.
To join the conference call, please dial +1 (866) 393-0676. Alternatively, the call may be accessed through the Investor Relations section of the company’s website at http://investors.ravenind.com. For those unable to listen live, an audio replay of the event will be archived on the company’s website.
Please note that accessing the meeting by webcast or conference call does not permit shareholders to vote, revoke a proxy or ask live questions. Therefore, to ensure that all votes are counted at the Annual Meeting, Raven strongly encourages shareholders to vote shares by proxy as directed in the proxy card, or through a broker, bank or other nominee’s voting instruction form.
Raven is closely monitoring developments with the COVID-19 pandemic. As regards the Annual Meeting, the company intends to comply with such local, state or federal requirements or guidelines as may be in effect on the date of the Annual Meeting, and Raven encourages its shareholders to use their own judgment and evaluation of those requirements or guidelines in determining whether to attend the Annual Meeting in person. In the event any further changes become necessary, Raven will publish those updates on its Investor Relations website at the address above.
