Over 10,000 Shareholders who cast their proxy votes by 5pm on June 15, qualified for the 2020 Regular Early Bird prizes.

“The deadline for the final round of proxy prizes is 5pm on June 29,” said Thom Aparuk Leonard, director of Communications and Shareholder Services. “All valid proxy votes must be received by this time. Shareholders who have misplaced their PIN can contact Sramek-Hightower at 907-633-3320. The PIN will also allow Shareholders to view the Annual Meeting.”
The Calista Annual Meeting scheduled for July 3, 2020, has changed from an in-person to a virtual Annual Meeting, due to COVID-19. Proxy voting continues as normal this year, except ballots cannot be cast “in-person” during the meeting. Shareholders are encouraged to save their individual PIN to view the virtual meeting. The meeting will start at 1pm.
Proxy prizes are only awarded if enough Shareholders vote and quorum is reached. This makes the Annual Meeting valid. Updates and details are posted at www.CalistaCorp.com/AnnualMeeting.
