ALLETE Annual Meeting of Shareholders moves to virtual format

Safety of shareholders, employees, directors and stakeholders is top priority

DULUTH, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 14, 2020-- ALLETE, Inc. (NYSE:ALE) announced today that its Annual Meeting of Shareholders will change to a virtual (i.e., online) format this year in light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

This decision was made in order to protect the health of shareholders, employees, directors and other stakeholders, and follows government guidance against holding large events at this time.

“Safety is a core value for all of us at ALLETE. Although we are disappointed we will not be able to meet with shareholders face-to-face at this year’s Annual Meeting, protecting the health of everyone in our communities is our priority,” ALLETE Chief Executive Officer and President Bethany Owen said. “We are pleased to be conducting this year’s meeting on a virtual platform that will allow participation and questions from shareholders.”

The date and time of the Annual Meeting of Shareholders will not change. It will be held on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. Central Time.

Shareholders will need an 11-digit control number to join the meeting as a shareholder and to ask questions at the meeting. Registered shareholders should have received their control number previously with their proxy materials and can call (800) 535-3056 if they need assistance.
