The Hartford will host a virtual annual meeting of shareholders at 12:30 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, May 20. The company’s Board of Directors considered public health concerns resulting from COVID-19, and protocols issued by federal, state and local governments, in its decision to host a virtual meeting rather than offering an option to attend in-person. For the health and safety of shareholders, the meeting will be solely by means of remote communication via audio webcast.
Shareholders of record at the close of business on March 23, 2020, or their legal proxy holders are entitled to attend the meeting, vote shares and submit questions at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/HIG2020. To be admitted, shareholders must enter the 16-digit control number found on the proxy card, voter instruction form or notice that they previously received. Guests without a control number may also attend the meeting, but will not be permitted to vote or submit questions. Shareholders of record may also vote or submit questions in advance of the meeting at www.proxyvote.com using their 16-digit control number.
A replay of the meeting will be available for 30 days following the event at https://ir.thehartford.com. A copy of the 2020 proxy statement and additional information regarding the annual meeting are available on the investor relations section of the company’s website.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has a webpage that provides shareholders with general information about how to cast their votes and why voting should be an important consideration for shareholders. We encourage investors to visit this webpage, https://www.sec.gov/spotlight/proxymatters.shtml.
