Century Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:CNBKA) (www.centurybank.com) (the "Company") today announced that it will hold its Annual Meeting of Class B Common Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting") remotely using virtual meeting technology due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The decision of the Board of Directors to change the meeting to a remote format was made in order to support the health of the Company’s stockholders, employees, and the community, and the decision was informed by, among other things, Governor Charles D. Baker’s COVID-19 Order No. 13 prohibiting gatherings of more than ten people and expert advice concerning the need for social distancing.
The Annual Meeting is to be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 10:00 a.m., Eastern Standard Time. Stockholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person. Stockholders will be afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate in the meeting as they would at an in-person meeting.
All Class A and Class B Stockholders are invited to remotely attend the Annual Meeting of Class B Common Stockholders. Stockholders may access the meeting by following the below log-in instructions. There is an alternative telephone option described in the instructions for those stockholders who prefer to attend by telephone rather by computer or other device.
