PPG announces plans for 2020 virtual annual meeting of shareholders

PPG (NYSE: PPG) today announced that its Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be held in a virtual meeting webcast format at 11 a.m. EDT on Thursday, April 16. Due to the public health impact of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and to protect the well-being of our employees, shareholders and other stakeholders, PPG will not hold an in-person meeting.

PPG shareholders, as of the close of business on February 21, 2020 (the record date for the annual meeting), are entitled to join the live virtual meeting. Shareholders will be able to listen (or read via closed captioning), vote, and submit questions from any remote location with internet connectivity.
