PEABODY ANNOUNCES CHANGE TO VIRTUAL ANNUAL MEETING FORMAT ON MAY 7, 2020

ST. LOUIS, April 17 – Peabody announced today that is has changed the format of its upcoming annual meeting of stockholders being held on May 7, 2020 at 9 a.m. (CDT) to a virtual meeting only.

Shareholders can participate in the annual meeting at http://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/BTU2020 by entering the control number found on the proxy card. Further details on how to participate in the virtual meeting are available on proxyvote.com.

Shareholders can continue to vote in advance of the meeting or during the meeting. Voting of shares can be completed in advance via the toll-free number, by visiting the internet site provided in the proxy materials or by mailing in a signed and dated proxy card.
