Message to Shareholders
Happy New Year! By now, Doyon’s shareholders should have received copies of the 2015 annual report and proxy materials in the mail. In summary, Doyon had the best financial year in its history. We are now busy preparing for the upcoming annual meeting, which will be held at the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel on Friday, March 18 starting at 9 a.m.
As with every annual meeting and board election, I encourage our shareholders to vote. Your vote not only helps Doyon reach the quorum needed to hold an annual meeting, but if you vote by February 19, you are also eligible to win one of our early bird prizes. We have over $13,000 in early bird prizes!
This year, we have 11 candidates running for four open board seats. You can view the candidates’ profiles in the proxy statement and candidate matrix that was mailed to you. You can also visit the annual meeting page on this site for the link to the eProxy system or go directly to https://eproxy.doyon.com.
If you haven’t voted already, please do so. There are several methods available to our voting eligible shareholders, including completing the paper proxy and mailing, faxing or hand-delivering it, or using our simple online eProxy system. The eProxy system can be accessed through the internet by computer, smartphone or tablet 24 hours a day/7 days a week while the voting period is open. All you need to access it is your PIN number (found on the upper left corner of your paper proxy) and the last four digits of your Social Security number. If you don’t have access to your PIN, you can call Cook & Haugeberg at 1-877-456-7708 or 907-456-7708 and answer a few security questions.
In business-related news, I’m excited to announce that Alyeska Pipeline Service Company has renewed its security contract with Doyon Universal Services (DUS) for another nine years. This has been a long-standing contract that we’re very proud to hold. DUS provides security services to Alyeska facilities along the 800-mile pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to the terminal in Valdez, as well as their offices in Anchorage and Fairbanks.
Finally, I’d like to thank you, our shareholders, for your continued support of Doyon, its subsidiaries and our employees. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to complete the comment card included in your proxy statement, call us at 1-888-478-4755 or 907-459-2000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
