May 4, 2020
(Anchorage, Alaska) – The Calista Corporation’s 46th Annual Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for July 3, 2020, will proceed as a virtual meeting in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing restrictions on travel and in-person meetings.
Shareholders will log in to participate in a live stream of the Annual Meeting at www.CalistaVote.com by using their individual voting PIN. To ensure the best possible quality of transmission and the best possible Shareholder access to the Annual Meeting, the virtual meeting will be managed out of Anchorage. Calista will develop options for Shareholders to submit questions.
“We are holding our meeting online to safeguard the health of Shareholders and employees,” said Calista Corp. President/CEO Andrew Guy. “This option also preserves the rights of Shareholders to elect members of the Board of Directors and receive updates from management.”
2020 Annual Meeting materials and further instructions for participating in the live stream will be distributed on May 22. Individual voting PINs are included on the back page of the Proxy Voting forms, addressed to each individual eligible voting Shareholder. Shareholders who opted for electronic Annual Meeting materials will receive their PIN in an email, also scheduled for May 22.
The 2020 Annual Meeting was previously scheduled to occur in Tuluksak. This is the first time that the Calista Annual Meeting has been held as a virtual meeting. The meeting will be held in compliance with the electronic meeting provisions of Alaska Senate Bill 241, signed into law on April 9, 2020.
