LAS VEGAS, April 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Gas Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SWX) announced that, due to public meeting restrictions and continued public health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, the Company changed the format of its previously announced Annual Meeting of Stockholders, scheduled for May 7, 2020, from an in-person meeting to an online only meeting. Additionally, the Company changed the meeting time to 11:30 a.m. PT. As always, the Company encourages stockholders to vote and submit their proxies well ahead of the Annual Meeting, although voting will also be available during the online meeting.
The Company designed the format of the Annual Meeting to ensure that stockholders are afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate as they would at an in‑person meeting, using online tools to ensure stockholder access and participation. More information about the online Annual Meeting is provided below.
Access to the Audio Webcast of the Annual Meeting. The live audio webcast of the Annual Meeting will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. PT. Online access to the audio webcast will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the Annual Meeting to allow time for stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 10, 2020, the record date for the Annual Meeting, to log-in and test their equipment.
The Company is providing the live audio webcast access through two online platforms. All of the Company's stockholders are encouraged to carefully review and confirm the log-in information that follows to ensure they are accessing the appropriate designated platform. Also, the Company encourages stockholders to access the meeting in advance of the Annual Meeting's start time.
Log-in Instructions. To attend the online Annual Meeting, stockholders should do the following:
Submitting Questions. Prior to the meeting, stockholders may submit questions pertaining to the business of the meeting by emailing the Company's Corporate Secretary, Thomas Moran, at: [email protected]. During the Annual Meeting stockholders will also be able to submit questions through the platforms being used for the Annual Meeting.
