Annual Report and Proxy Delivery
In January, Doyon mailed two separate 2019 annual meeting material packets to voting shareholders who did not opt-in to electronic delivery. The first mailing, including the annual report and proxy statement, was sent to each shareholder household (unless the shareholder opted out of householding). The second mailing was sent on February 22 to individual voting shareholders and included the 2019 proxy card, postage-paid return envelope, candidate matrix and comment card.
Shareholders who signed up for electronic delivery were sent an email with annual report and proxy information and voting instructions on January 23. Shareholders who signed up for electronic delivery, but did not receive the January 23 email should check their spam or junk email folders. If the email is not in spam or junk, contact Doyon communications at email@example.com for assistance.
Shareholders who wish to receive future annual meeting materials electronically can opt-in by completing the form on the Doyon website.
At the meeting, shareholders will elect four directors to serve three-year terms on the Doyon board. Current directors whose terms expire at the March 2019 annual meeting are Jerry Isaac, Brian Ridley, Sonta Hamilton Roach and Miranda Wright. Learn more about the candidates on the board election webpage.

Shareholders who submitted their eProxies by the early bird deadline were eligible for ALL of the cash prize drawings, including the early bird eProxy prizes.
