Covia to Hold Virtual Annual Meeting of Stockholders
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, April 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covia (NYSE:CVIA), a leading provider of mineral-based material solutions for the Industrial and Energy markets, announced today that it will
hold a virtual Annual Meeting of Stockholders on May 21, 2020 (“Annual Meeting”) due to the public health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and to support the health of its stockholders, directors,
employees and community.
The Annual Meeting will be held on the same date and time as originally scheduled, May 21, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. EDT, and will be accessible at https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/vm. Stockholders interested in attending the Annual Meeting are required to register by 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 18, 2020 at https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/. Covia urges stockholders to vote and submit proxies in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting.
For additional information regarding how stockholders may access, vote and participate in the Annual Meeting, please refer to the Company’s supplemental proxy materials filed today and the proxy materials previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The proxy card and voting instruction form included with the previously distributed proxy materials will not be updated to reflect the change in location of the meeting, but they may continue to be used to vote shares of common stock on the proposals to be presented at the virtual Annual Meeting. Stockholders who have previously voted do not need to take any further action. Only stockholders with a valid 16-digit control number will be able to attend the Annual Meeting and vote and submit questions at the Annual Meeting.
Although the Annual Meeting will be held in a virtual-only format this year, Covia remains committed to stockholder engagement and currently intends to return to an in-person annual meeting for future annual meetings held under normal circumstances.
