(Anchorage, Alaska) – Calista Corporation’s 47th Annual Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for 1 p.m. on July 1, 2021, will be virtual (held by electronic communication on the Internet) at www.CalistaVote.com. This is in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Shareholders will log in with their individual voting PIN to participate in a live stream of the Annual Meeting at www.CalistaVote.com. All Shareholders who log into the meeting will be entered in a random drawing, with two winners who will each win $2,500.
“The pandemic continues to impact the health and safety of our Shareholders, and we encourage Shareholders to save their voting PIN to safely join our Annual Meeting,” said Calista Corp. President/CEO Andrew Guy. “Voting remains a critical role and responsibility of Shareholders. Only the Shareholders, through their votes, elect members of the Board of Directors.”
2021 Annual Meeting materials and further instructions for participating in the virtual meeting are being sent to Shareholders on May 21. Individual voting PINs are printed on the back page of the Proxy Voting form addressed to each eligible voting Shareholder. Shareholders who opted for electronic Annual Meeting materials will receive their PIN in an email, also sent May 21.
Four rounds of proxy prizes totaling $58,000 will be offered during the voting period, an increase of $6,000 from in-person meetings. All proxies cast at www.CalistaVote.com by the first proxy prize deadline—5 p.m. Alaska time on June 5—qualify for the top prize of $10,000. All proxies cast online by the first deadline also automatically qualify for all remaining proxy prizes.
