Due to the public health impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and to protect the well-being of its employees, shareholders and other stakeholders, PPG will not hold an in-person meeting.
PPG shareholders, as of the close of business on Feb. 21, 2020 (the record date for the annual meeting), are entitled to join the live virtual meeting.
Shareholders will be able to listen (or read via closed captioning), vote, and submit questions from any remote location with internet connectivity.
To register for the virtual meeting, follow these instructions:
If your shares are registered in your name with PPG’s transfer agent or you are a participant holding PPG stock in a PPG-sponsored employee savings plan and you wish to attend the online-only virtual meeting, go to www.CESVote.com, enter the control number you received on your Proxy Card or Notice of the Meeting and click on the “Click here to preregister for the online meeting” link at the top of the page. After pre-registering, you will receive an e-mail before the meeting with a link and instructions for entering the virtual meeting.
Beneficial shareholders (those holding shares through a stock brokerage account or by a bank or other holder of record) who wish to attend the virtual meeting must obtain a legal proxy by contacting their account representative at the bank, broker, or another nominee that holds their shares and e-mail a copy (a legible photograph is sufficient) of their legal proxy to “PPGRegister@Proxy-Agent.com.”
Beneficial shareholders who e-mail a valid legal proxy will be registered for the meeting and issued a control number that will allow them to attend and participate in the online-only meeting. You will receive an e-mail before the meeting with a link and instructions for entering the virtual meeting.
To maintain the interactive nature of the virtual meeting, attendees will be able to:
