Statement on annual shareholder meetings

The coronavirus pandemic has presented a new reality for people, communities, and businesses. During this time, we understand that public companies may choose to adapt their approaches to shareholder meetings. We welcome the use of virtual meetings or other options that ensure that shareholders’ voices are heard. Vanguard’s proxy voting activities continue. We ask that companies work within local regulatory frameworks, and publicly communicate any changes or delays of their proxy filings to the market.
