Welbilt moves shareholder meeting online
March 23, 2020 - Don't show up at Welbilt Inc.'s New Port Richey headquarters for its annual shareholders meeting on April 24. The commercial food equipment manufacturer is joining a growing number of companies moving their annual meetings online, due to the emerging public health impact of Covid-19 coronavirus. Stockholders will be admitted to the annual meeting through a special website, and must enter a control number found on their proxy card or voting instruction form, the company said in a news release. Welbilt (NYSE: WBT) last week said it was withdrawing its financial guidance for 2020, because there won’t be as much demand for the equipment that Welbilt makes at least through the end of June and possibly after that.
