Tesla updates plan for 2020 Annual Shareholders Meeting and Battery Day

Tesla building

Tesla has announced several new updates for the delayed Annual Shareholders Meeting and Battery Day event.

The Annual Shareholders Meeting part of the day will still take place as scheduled on September 22, 2020 at 1:30pm PST. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic which limits the number of people that can attend, any shareholder as of July 31, 2020 can join meeting at this link, and still be able to submit votes and written comments on the agenda items.

Tesla describes in a press release the two ways to join the virtual meeting, which requires a password (tsla2020), and a 15-digit secure “control number”.

  • If you are a “stockholder of record” with shares registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company (a minority of Tesla stockholders), you can find the control number on the Notice of Internet Availability or paper proxy card that was sent to you (please check that it is for the meeting as scheduled for September 22, 2020, NOT as previously scheduled for July 7, 2020).
  • If you are a “beneficial owner” and hold shares through a broker, bank or other organization (the vast majority of Tesla stockholders), you will have to register in advance to obtain a control number. Please ask your broker, bank or organization for a “legal proxy” for the 2020 Annual Meeting and submit a copy of it from your e-mail address with “Legal Proxy” in the subject line to legalproxy@computershare.com. If your request is received no later than 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time on September 17, 2020, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your control number.

There will also be a random drawing to determine who gets to attend in-person to both events.  To apply, visit www.tesla.com/2020shareholdermeeting.
