News Release

 

U.S. Bancorp to move to virtual-only annual shareholder meeting for 2020

 

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March 19, 2020) — U.S. Bancorp announced today that its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders will be held virtually, moving away from an in-person event due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Virtual meeting date: Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Virtual meeting time: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. CT

Virtual meeting link: www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/USB2020

 

Shareholders of record at the close of business on February 25, 2020, are invited to vote their shares and register for the meeting at proxyvote.com using the instructions provided with their proxy materials that were issued beginning March 10. Shareholders may submit questions in advance when they register for the meeting, and they also will have the opportunity to submit questions during the virtual event using the directions on the meeting website that day. All shareholders will need their control number to vote or ask questions; that number can be found on the proxy cards, voting instruction forms or other notices they received previously. Those without a control number may attend as guests of the meeting, but they will not have the option to vote their shares or ask questions during the virtual event.

 

Technical assistance will be available for those attending the meeting.
