Can I ask questions at the Annual Meeting?
In order to ensure stockholders are afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate in the Annual Meeting as an in-person meeting, we will hold a live Q&A session, during which we intend to answer questions submitted online during the meeting that are pertinent to the Company and the meeting matters, for up to fifteen minutes following the completion of the Annual Meeting.
Only stockholders of record as of the record date for the Annual Meeting and their proxy holders who have logged in using a 16-digit control number may submit questions or comments.
You will be able to ask questions by joining the virtual Annual Meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RENT2022 and typing your question in the box in the Annual Meeting portal.
To help ensure that we have a productive and efficient meeting, and in fairness to all stockholders in attendance, you will also find posted our rules of conduct for the Annual Meeting when you log in prior to its start. In accordance with the rules of conduct, we ask that you limit your remarks to one brief question or comment that is relevant to the Annual Meeting or Rent the Runway’s business and that remarks are respectful of your fellow stockholders and meeting participants. Questions may be grouped by topic by Rent the Runway’s management with a representative question read aloud and answered. In addition, questions may be deemed to be out of order if they are, among other things, irrelevant to our business, repetitious of statements already made, or in furtherance of the speaker’s own personal, political, or business interests. Questions will be addressed in the Q&A portion of the Annual Meeting.
What if I need technical assistance accessing or participating in the virtual Annual Meeting?
If you encounter any difficulties accessing the virtual Annual Meeting during the check-in or meeting time, please call the technical support number that will be posted on the virtual Annual Meeting log in page. Technical support will be available starting at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time on July 13, 2022.
What if I lose my 16-digit control number?
If you lose your 16-digit control number, you may join the Annual Meeting as a “Guest” but you will not be able to vote, ask questions, or access the list of stockholders as of the record date.
What is the deadline for voting?
If you are a stockholder of record, your ability to vote by proxy by internet or telephone will end at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 12, 2022. If you prefer to vote by mail, you should complete and return the proxy card as soon as possible, so that it is received no later than the closing of the polls at the Annual Meeting on July 13, 2022. You will also be able to vote by attending and voting at the virtual Annual Meeting on July 13, 2022. However, we recommend that you submit your proxy in advance in the event your plans change or you are unable to attend the Annual Meeting.
If your Rent the Runway shares are held in an account with a broker, bank, trustee, or nominee, you should vote in accordance with the instructions from your broker, bank, trustee, or nominee.
What happens if I do not vote?
If you are a stockholder of record and do not vote by completing your proxy card, by telephone, through the internet, or online during the meeting, your shares will not be voted.
If your Rent the Runway shares are held in an account with a broker, bank, trustee, or nominee, and you do not instruct your broker, bank, trustee, or nominee how to vote your shares, your broker, bank, trustee, or nominee may still be able to vote your shares in its discretion. In this regard, brokers, banks, and other securities intermediaries may use their discretion to vote your “uninstructed” shares with respect to matters considered under applicable exchange rules to be “routine,” but not with respect to “non-routine” matters. Proposal No. 1 (Election of Directors) is considered to be “non-routine” under applicable exchange rules, meaning that your
