Stockholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person. Instead, stockholders should follow the instructions provided below to attend the virtual Annual Meeting. Stockholders who attend the virtual Annual Meeting by following the instructions below will have an opportunity to vote and to submit questions electronically during the meeting.

The Annual Meeting will be held on the same date and time as originally scheduled, May 21, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. EDT, and will be accessible at https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/vm. Stockholders interested in attending the Annual Meeting are required to register by 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 18, 2020 at https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/. Covia urges stockholders to vote and submit proxies in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting.

  • Stockholders of Record: If you were a stockholder of record at the close of business on March 23, 2020 (i.e., your shares are held in your own name in the records of Covia’s transfer agent), you must register by 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 18, 2020 at https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/. You may then attend the virtual Annual Meeting on May 21, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. EDT by visiting https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/vm and entering the password provided after registration. You may vote during the virtual meeting using the first 13 digits of the 16-digit control number previously provided to you in your proxy materials. If you are a stockholder of record and you have misplaced your control number, please call Alliance Advisors at 1-866-612-8937.
  • Beneficial Owners: If you were a beneficial owner of common stock of Covia at the close of business on March 23, 2020 (i.e., you hold your shares in “street name” through an intermediary, such as a bank, broker or other nominee), to attend the virtual Annual Meeting, you must follow the steps below in order to register in advance of the Annual Meeting:
    • Obtain a legal proxy from the bank, broker or other nominee that is the record holder of your shares.
    • Submit a request for registration to Alliance Advisors (1) by email to virtualmeeting@viewproxy.com, or (2) by visiting the registration site at https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/. Requests for registration and submission of legal proxies should be labeled as “Legal Proxy”.
    • Alliance Advisors will then provide you with a new control number that will give you access to the Annual Meeting. Once you have obtained your control number, you may then attend the virtual Annual Meeting on May 21, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. EDT by visiting https://viewproxy.com/Covia/2020/vm and entering the password provided after registration. You may vote during the virtual meeting using the virtual control number that was provided to you. Once you are admitted you will have the ability to vote your shares during the Annual Meeting.

Obtaining a legal proxy may take several days and stockholders are advised to register as far in advance as possible. Covia can provide no assurances that registration requests will be processed if they are not submitted by 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 18, 2020.
