The Toro Company (TTC) - Get Toro Company Report today announced that in light of the global circumstances surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), it is encouraging the investment community and other interested stakeholders to participate in the company's 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders by webcast rather than attending the meeting in person.
"As always, the health and safety of our teams, shareholders, partners and communities is our top priority," said Rick Olson, chairman and chief executive officer of The Toro Company. "Given the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the virus, it's extremely important that we are all taking prudent measures to minimize its spread and impact. This proactive approach to our 2020 shareholder meeting is taken in an abundance of caution and aligned with many other recent actions intended to limit public gatherings."
As a result, the members of The Toro Company Board of Directors will not be in attendance at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and instead will be participating by webcast. In addition, the Company will not be providing a business review or the opportunity for questions as part of the meeting agenda. Results of the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders will appear in a Form 8-K that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission after the conclusion of the meeting.
As announced on March 10, 2020, the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. CDT.
