Newmont Announces Moving to a Virtual Meeting for 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders
Newmont Corp. (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) (Newmont or the Company) provided notice today of an update to the location for the Company?s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders via the filing of additional proxy materials with the SEC.
Due to the emerging public health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Newmont?s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (Annual Meeting) will be held in a virtual only meeting format on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Time. Online access to the meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. Mountain Time. You will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person. In addition to this adjustment, the Company has implemented additional controls at its operations and offices around the globe to further protect the health and safety of its workforce, their families and neighboring communities.
We expect this modification in meeting format to be effective for this year only and to revert back to an in-person annual meeting in future years after public health conditions have improved.
