Can I ask questions at the Special Meeting?
In order to ensure stockholders are afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate in the Special 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 matters presented at the meeting. We will not discuss the Company’s business in the Q&A session.
Only stockholders of record as of the record date for the Special 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 Special Meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RENT2023SM and typing your question in the box in the Special 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 Special 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 Special Meeting 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 the matters presented at the meeting, repetitious of statements already made, or in furtherance of the speaker’s own personal, political, or business interests. Questions will only be addressed in the Q&A portion of the Special Meeting.
What if I need technical assistance accessing or participating in the virtual Special Meeting?
If you encounter any difficulties accessing the virtual Special Meeting during the check-in or meeting time, please call the technical support number that will be posted on the virtual Special Meeting log in page. Technical support will be available starting at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time on June 7, 2023.
What if I lose my 16-digit control number?
If you lose your 16-digit control number, you may join the Special 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 June 6, 2023. 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 Special Meeting on June 7, 2023. You will also be able to vote by attending and voting at the virtual Special Meeting on June 7, 2023. However, we recommend that you submit your proxy in advance in the event your plans change or you are unable to attend the Special 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 or other nominee, and you do not instruct your broker or other nominee how to vote your shares, your broker or other nominee may still be able to vote your shares in its discretion. In this regard, brokers 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.
