VANCOUVER, March 31, 2020 /CNW/ - Similar to other public companies around the globe, Canfor Pulp Products Inc. (TSX:CFX) and Canfor Corporation (TSX:CFP) each announced that they will take COVID-19 precautionary measures for the companies' upcoming Annual General Meetings (AGMs) on April 23, 2020. As part of Canfor's COVID-19 action plan the changes are intended to reduce potential risks associated with travel and large gatherings, and to focus on the health and safety of our employees, suppliers, customers, communities and shareholders.
The revised event format for both AGMs will include a one way web and telephone conference. Shareholders can email questions prior to the meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org, but will not otherwise be able to vote or speak at the AGMs via the web or telephone conference. Shareholders are encouraged to use these media and not to attend the AGMs in person but to vote on the matters at the AGMs by proxy, appointing a management proxyholder to limit the number of attendees.
As the COVID-19 pandemic is quickly evolving, the companies will continue to monitor the circumstances of the virus and any recommendations or directives of government and health authorities and will advise shareholders as necessary of any further updates regarding the AGMs.
