AvalonBay Communities Announces Change of Location to Online Meeting for Its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders
AVALONBAY COMMUNITIES, INC. (NYSE: AVB) today announced
that its Board of Directors has determined to transition the
location of the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual
Meeting”) after considering a Virginia stay-at-home executive order
and the national public health impact of COVID-19. The Annual
Meeting will still be held on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, at 8:00 a.m.
Eastern Time but it will be held in a virtual meeting format via
audio webcast only. Stockholders will not be able to attend the
Annual Meeting physically but will be able to vote and submit
questions online during the meeting. Stockholders who have already
authorized a proxy to vote their shares or who have responded to a
voting instruction form from their bank or broker do not need to
take any additional action.
The Annual Meeting can be accessed via the Company’s Annual
Meeting Website at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/AVB2020
beginning 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of 8:00 a.m.
Eastern Time. As described in the proxy materials for the Annual
Meeting, stockholders of record as of the close of business on
March 16, 2020, will be able to access and participate in the
Annual Meeting as will persons holding a legal proxy or voting
instruction form with a 16 digit control number from a bank or
broker or stockholder of record. Additional information about
accessing the Annual Meeting Website and participating at the
meeting can be found on the Company’s website at
