Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT), the world’s leading research and advisory company, today announced that its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders has been changed to a virtual only meeting due to the public health concerns of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. In light of this change, stockholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person this year. The Annual Meeting will be held on Monday, June 8, 2020 at 10:00 a.m., EDT, as previously scheduled.
Stockholders of record at the close of business on April 14, 2020, are entitled to join the live virtual meeting and shall be able to listen, vote, and submit questions remotely. Stockholders may vote shares by visiting www.proxyvote.com. There is no change to the items of business to be addressed at the meeting, which are described in Gartner’s proxy materials.
VIRTUAL MEETING INFORMATION
On the day of the Annual Meeting, stockholders or their legal proxy holders must visit www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/IT2020 to attend and participate in the virtual Annual Meeting, including to vote and submit questions on proposals during the meeting. Stockholders will need the 16-digit control number found on their proxy card, voting instruction form or Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials they previously received to submit questions, vote or examine the stockholder list at the virtual Annual Meeting. It is recommended that stockholders log in to the Annual Meeting website before the Annual Meeting begins. Online check-in will be available approximately 10 minutes before the meeting starts.
As always, Gartner encourages stockholders to vote in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials. The previously distributed proxy card, voting instruction form and Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials will not be updated to reflect the change in meeting format and stockholders should continue to use them to vote. Stockholders who have already voted do not need to take any further action.
An electronic list of the stockholders of record as of the record date will be available for examination by stockholders at the Annual Meeting website during the meeting.
Additional information regarding the rules and procedures for participating in the virtual Annual Meeting will be set forth in our meeting rules of conduct, which stockholders can view during the meeting at the Annual Meeting website.
