Due to the public health impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and to protect the health and well-being of Cadence’s stockholders and employees, Cadence has changed the format of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to virtual only. Individuals will not be able to attend the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders in person.
Cadence is pleased to provide proxy materials for the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders over the internet in accordance with the Notice and Access Rule adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
As a result, most of our stockholders as of the close of business on March 2, 2020 (the "Record Date") will receive a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials instead of paper copies of the 2019 Form 10-K and 2020 proxy materials.
The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials provides instructions on how to access the 2020 proxy materials, vote via the internet or by telephone, and obtain paper copies of the 2019 Form 10-K and 2020 proxy materials.
