Additional Information

Your Vote is Important

Whether or not you plan to attend the virtual meeting, we urge you to vote by submitting your proxy in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the Management Proxy Circular (the “Circular”) and proxy materials previously distributed for the meeting. Note that the form of proxy or voting instruction form previously distributed to you will not be updated to reflect the change in location and may continue to be used to vote your shares.

How to Attend and Participate in the Virtual Meeting

Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders will be able to participate in the meeting, submit questions and securely vote in real time through a web-based platform which can be accessed using a smartphone, tablet or computer by following the steps below.

Non-registered shareholders that want to vote at the meeting, or appoint a third party to do so, must appoint themselves, or the third party, as proxyholder by carefully following the instructions in the Circular and on their form of proxy or voting instruction form. After submitting their form of proxy or voting instruction form to appoint themselves or a third party as proxyholder, shareholders must also complete the additional step of registering their proxyholder online at http://www.computershare.com/laurentianbank by no later than 5:00 p.m. on April 3, 2020. Failing to register online will result in a proxyholder not receiving a control number, which is required to vote at the meeting. Non-registered shareholders who have not duly appointed themselves as proxyholder will be able to attend the virtual meeting as guests but will not be able to vote at the virtual meeting.
