Tyson Foods has decided to move its annual shareholders meeting slated for Feb. 10 to a virtual event. This comes as Northwest Arkansas continues to be a hot bed for COVID-19 cases associated with the Omicron variant.
Company officials said the decision was made to support the well-being of the company’s shareholders and other participants. All shareholders of record at the close of business on Dec. 13, 2021, will be entitled to attend the virtual event, to submit questions and vote electronically at the annual meeting.
Tyson said the event will start at 10 a.m. and attendees can begin logging on to the virtual meeting at 9.45 a.m. The company said those not able to join virtually to cast their vote, can do so by telephone or mail prior to the start of the meeting. Shareholders will need the 16-digit control number included in their Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials already mailed to them.
Tyson Foods’ shareholders will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance of the annual meeting at the following site: Shareholders can also submit questions during the meeting via the message function. Tyson said to ask questions at the meeting shareholders will need to reference their 16-digit control number.
Shareholders who need assistance with technical difficulties should call Broadridge, Tyson’s virtual meeting provider, at 844-986-0822 inside the U.S. and 303-562-9302 for international calls.
