On March 3, 2022, the Board of Directors of Guess?, Inc. (the “Company”) determined that the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of shareholders (including any meeting of shareholders held in lieu thereof, and any adjournments, postponements or continuations thereof, the “2022 Annual Meeting”) will be held virtually on Friday, April 22, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. (PDT). The Board of Directors set March 23, 2022 as the record date for determining shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and vote at, the 2022 Annual Meeting.
Shareholder Proposals for Inclusion in Proxy Statement
Because the 2022 Annual Meeting will be held more than 30 days from the anniversary date of the Company’s last annual meeting of shareholders, which was held on June 24, 2021, pursuant to Rule 14a-8 (“Rule 14a-8”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company is setting a deadline for receipt of Rule 14a-8 shareholder proposals that is a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials.
Shareholders who wish to have a Rule 14a-8 proposal considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2022 Annual Meeting must ensure that their proposal is received by the Corporate Secretary of the Company at the Company’s principal executive offices at 1444 S. Alameda Street, Los Angeles, California 90021, no later than March 14, 2022, which the Company has determined is a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials. Such shareholder proposals must also comply with the other requirements of Rule 14a-8 in order to be eligible for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2022 Annual Meeting.
Nomination of Directors and Other Proposals
Further, in accordance with the Company’s Fourth Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”), written notice of shareholder proposals submitted by shareholders who do not seek to have such proposals considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2022 Annual Meeting and nominations of individuals for election to the Board of Directors at the 2022 Annual Meeting must be received by the Corporate Secretary of the Company at the Company’s principal executive offices at the address specified above no later than the close of business on March 14, 2022. In the case of shareholder proposals not intended to be included in the Company’s proxy statement, such written notice must comply with the requirements laid out in Section 2.09 of the Bylaws. In the case of director nominations, such written notice must comply with the requirements laid out in the Bylaws. The March 14, 2022, deadline will also apply in determining whether notice of business is timely for purposes of exercising discretionary voting authority with respect to proxies under Rule 14a-4(c) under the Exchange Act.
