BATTLE CREEK, Mich., March 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg Company today announced that, due to the public health impact of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), its Annual Meeting of Shareowners, to be held on Friday, April 24, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. ET, has been changed to a virtual meeting. Shareowners will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person this year.
Shareowners are entitled to participate in the Annual Meeting if they were a shareowner as of the close of business on February 28, 2020, the record date, or hold a legal proxy for the meeting provided by the shareowner's bank, broker, or nominee.
To take part in the Annual Meeting, shareowners can join the webcast at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/K2020 (the "Annual Meeting Website"). To be admitted to the webcast on the Annual Meeting Website, shareowners must enter the control number found on the shareowner's proxy card, voting instruction form, or notice previously received by shareowners. Those without a control number may attend as guests of the meeting, but will not have the option to vote shares or ask questions during the virtual event.
Presentation materials will be posted on investor.kelloggs.com prior to the commencement of the Annual Meeting. Shareowners may vote during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions available on the Annual Meeting Website. Shareowners will also have the opportunity to submit questions during the virtual event by using the directions available on the live Annual Meeting Website.

Please note that the proxy card included with the proxy materials previously distributed will not be updated to reflect the change in location and may continue to be used to vote shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
All shareowners - whether attending the Annual Meeting or not - are encouraged to vote and submit their proxies in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials. Shareowners who have sent in proxies, or voted via telephone or internet, do not need to take any further action.
