Banc of California, Inc. (NYSE: BANC) (the "Company") today announced that its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held solely by remote communication due to public health concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and government-recommended and required limits on gatherings and events. A virtual event will assist in protecting the health and safety of the Company’s stockholders, directors, employees and the community. There will be no in-person attendance at the Annual Meeting.
As previously announced, the Annual Meeting will be held on May 14, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
Attending the Annual Meeting
Stockholders as of the close of business on March 16, 2020 who have a control number may attend the Annual Meeting and may vote during, and participate in, the Annual Meeting by following the instructions on the meeting website, www.meetingcenter.io/249728194. The password for the Annual Meeting is BANC2020. Online access to the Annual Meeting, which will be an audio-only webcast, will begin at 7:45 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on May 14, 2020.
For registered stockholders (meaning those who hold shares in their own name, rather than through a bank, broker or other nominee), the control number can be found on their proxy card or notice of internet availability they previously received.
Stockholders who hold shares through a bank, broker or other nominee must obtain a legal proxy from their bank, broker or other nominee and register in advance to be able to attend the Annual Meeting and vote during, and participate in, the Annual Meeting. To register, such stockholders must submit to the Company’s transfer agent, Computershare, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) proof of their legal proxy reflecting their Banc of California share holdings (in the form of an image of their legal proxy). The email must be labeled "Legal Proxy" in the subject line and be received by Computershare no later than 2:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on May 11, 2020. Stockholders who properly register will receive an email from Computershare confirming their registration, together with a control number.
Technical support can be obtained after accessing the meeting website by clicking the "Support" link.
If you previously received a proxy card, the proxy card will not be updated to reflect the change to a virtual meeting format and may continue to be used by stockholders to vote their shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
The Company urges stockholders to vote by proxy in advance of the Annual Meeting using one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, regardless of whether they plan to attend the Annual Meeting.
