Devon changes shareholders meeting to ‘virtual’

Devon Energy Corp. announced a change in the time and format for its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Because of continued concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, the Annual Meeting will be held solely by remote communication, in a “virtual-only” format.

The previously announced date of June 3, 2020, has not changed, but the meeting will now take place at 1 p.m. Central Time (CT) rather than 8 a.m. CT. As a safety precaution, the Devon Energy Center, including the Devon Energy Center Auditorium where the meeting was to occur, remains closed to the public until further notice.

The meeting will be webcast and can be accessed by stockholders at using the control number on their proxy card, voting instruction form or Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. Devon has 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.

As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, stockholders are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting if they held shares as of the close of business on April 6, 2020, the record date designated by Devon’s board of directors for the Annual Meeting, or if they hold a legal proxy for the meeting provided by their broker, bank or other nominee.
