Employee Voting for the 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders
Chevrons Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held at Chevron Park Auditorium, 6001 Bollinger Canyon Road, San Ramon, California, on Wednesday, May 25, 2016.
Around Thursday, April 14, Chevron employees who hold Chevron common stock through an employee stock or retirement benefit plan and who have a company-issued email address will be sent an email with instructions for voting their shares online and viewing the Notice of the 2016 Annual Meeting, the 2016 Proxy Statement and the 2015 Annual Report. Chevron employees who participate in an employee stock or retirement benefit plan, but do not receive an email, will receive the information through the mail. Time of delivery will vary based on geographic location.
The Proxy Statement and Annual Report are also now available electronically on www.chevron.com/investors/stockholder-services and can be accessed, viewed, and printed at your convenience. The Proxy Statement includes important information on matters that will be voted on at the meeting. You will be voting to elect members of the companys Board of Directors; to ratify the appointment of PwC as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm; to approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of Chevrons named executive officers; to approve an amendment to the Chevron Corporation Non-Employee Directors Equity Compensation and Deferral Plan; and on eight stockholder proposals.
Electronic delivery of the proxy materials saves natural resources, in addition to saving the company printing and delivery costs. However, if you wish to receive a paper copy of the Proxy Statement or Annual Report, you may submit a request indicating the item(s) you wish to receive, along with your name and intercompany mailing address, to email@example.com.
Employee stockholders will have the ease of voting their proxies online or through a telephone voting service. Please vote. Your vote is important.
Voting Is Confidential
