To support the health and well-being of its shareholders, employees, directors, operators and communities due to the emerging public health threat of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the Company's upcoming 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting") will be held in a virtual-only format. As previously announced, the Annual Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. ET, but shareholders will not be able to attend in person. The virtual meeting will provide shareholders the ability to participate, vote their shares, and ask questions.
As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting previously distributed, shareholders are entitled to participate in the Annual Meeting if they were a shareholder as of the close of business on March 30, 2021, the record date. Regardless of whether you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote and submit your proxy in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. The proxy card included with the proxy materials previously distributed may continue to be used to vote your shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
To be admitted to the virtual Annual Meeting, go to www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/WELL2021 and enter your unique 16-digit control number, which may be found on the proxy card, voting instruction form or Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, as applicable, provided with Welltower’s previously distributed proxy materials. You may vote during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions available on the meeting website during the meeting.
Shareholders as of the record date who attend and participate in the virtual Annual Meeting using their control number (as described above) will have an opportunity to submit questions in advance of the Annual Meeting by visiting www.proxyvote.com before 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on May 25, 2021. To attend, vote, and submit questions during the Annual Meeting, shareholders must visit www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/WELL2021 and enter the 16-digit control number included in their proxy card, voting instruction form or Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. We will try to answer as many shareholder-submitted questions that comply with the rules of conduct as time permits.
We have provided a toll-free technical support “help line” that can be accessed by any shareholder who is having challenges logging into or participating in the Annual Meeting. If shareholders encounter any difficulties accessing the virtual meeting during the check-in or meeting time, they can call the technical support line number that will be posted on the Annual Meeting login page.
Additional information regarding the rules and procedures for participating in the virtual Annual Meeting will be set forth in our meeting rules of conduct, which shareholders can view during the meeting at the meeting website or prior to the meeting at www.proxyvote.com.
