Atlantic Union Bankshares Announces Change of Annual Shareholder Meeting to a Virtual Meeting
RICHMOND, Va., April 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation (the “Company”) today announced that, in response to the public health concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), it has changed the location of its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) from a physical meeting to a virtual meeting held on the internet.
“We made the decision out of an abundance of caution and to comply with limitations related to large group meetings due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The change of venue will still enable shareholders to vote and ask questions, but it also supports the health and well-being of our teammates, shareholders, and our community,” said John C. Asbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
The Annual Meeting can be accessed via the internet at: www.meetingcenter.io/258767844. The previously announced date and time of the Annual Meeting (Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.) has not changed.

Shareholders may vote prior to the Annual Meeting by Internet, telephone or regular mail as previously described in the Company’s proxy statement for the Annual Meeting.
