MILTON, N.Y., August 12, 2020 – Sono-Tek Corporation (OTCQX: SOTK), the leading developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic coating systems, today announced a change in the format and location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. In light of the continued public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and to protect the well-being of our shareholders, the Annual Meeting will be held solely by remote communication, in a “virtual-only” format. Shareholders will no longer have the option to attend the Annual Meeting in person. The meeting will still be held on August 20, 2020 at 10:00 A.M., Eastern Daylight Time.
The meeting will be webcast and can be accessed by shareholders at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/SOTK2020. Only shareholders that log in using the 16-digit control number provided to them either on their proxy card or voting instruction form will be able to vote and submit questions during the Annual Meeting. The Company has designed the format of the Annual Meeting to ensure that shareholders are afforded similar opportunities to participate as they would at an in-person meeting, using online tools to ensure shareholder access and participation.
As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, shareholders are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting if they held Sono-Tek shares as of the close of business on July 15, 2020, the record date for the Annual Meeting. Guests, who are not shareholders of the Company as of the record date, may access the virtual Annual Meeting through the same website, however, they may not vote or submit questions. To learn more about accessing the virtual meeting, please refer to the Company’s Proxy Supplement relating to Notice of Change of Format and Location filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2020.
