A special meeting of stockholders for Sanderson Farms, Inc. (the “Special Meeting”) will be held on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. The Special Meeting will be held in virtual format only at https://meetnow.global/MP5NPZA.

For those who hold their shares in “street name” through an intermediary, like a broker or a bank, you must register in advance to attend the virtual-only Special Meeting. To register, you must obtain a legal proxy, executed in your favor, from the record holder of your shares and submit proof of your legal proxy reflecting the number of shares you held on the record date, as well as your name and email address, to Computershare, the Company’s transfer agent.  Please forward the email you receive from your broker or bank, or send an image of your legal proxy, to legalproxy@computershare.com.
