Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the leading companies in the cannabis industry, Canopy Growth Inc., has decided to run this year’s Annual General and Special Meeting in a virtual online format. The company announced today that the meeting will take place on September 21, 2020, at 10:00 AM EST, and that it will be conducted through a live audio webcast. This is a meeting for the company’s shareholders, and those who hold a legal proxy for the meeting are eligible to participate.
The 2020 virtual meeting is for shareholders of record, besides the ones holding a legal proxy, as of the close of business on July 28 of this year. For those shareholders who need more information on how to attend this virtual meeting, they can find detailed instructions and further information at Canopy Growth’s website in the investor’s area. The company itself is sending a notice of internet availability to those shareholders who are eligible to vote through regular mail. This notice was issued in accordance with established securities regulations that will provide guidance on how to access proxy materials and vote their shares. The goal of sending the paperwork with enough time is to encourage shareholders to vote and submit proxies as soon as possible before the actual meeting, following any of the methods described in the proxy statement.
