2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders
U.S. Bancorp’s 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be held on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, at 11:00 a.m., local time, at the Kansas City Marriott Country Club Plaza, Grand Ballroom, 4445 Main Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64111. Please click here for a map of the Annual Meeting location.
We encourage our shareholders to sign up to receive their annual meeting materials electronically by e-mail, without waiting for them to arrive by mail. This saves our company money on printing and mailing, and benefits the environment as well. Click here to learn more about electronic delivery and to sign up if you would like this delivery method.
Notice of Internet Availability
In accordance with rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, we furnished our proxy materials to our shareholders primarily over the Internet instead of mailing printed copies of those materials to each shareholder. On or about March 4, 2014, we mailed a notice of Internet availability of the proxy materials to most of our shareholders who had not previously requested printed materials. The notice contains instructions about how to access our proxy materials and vote online. This notice is not a proxy card and cannot be used to vote your shares. Furnishing our proxy materials over the Internet is designed to save costs and reduce the environmental impact of the annual meeting. However, if you would prefer to receive paper copies of our proxy materials, please follow the instructions included in the notice of Internet availability of proxy materials. Click here to learn more about this method of furnishing our proxy materials.
We provided some of our shareholders, including shareholders who previously requested to receive paper copies of the proxy materials and some of our shareholders who are participants in our benefit plans, with paper copies of the proxy materials instead of a notice. If you received paper copies of the notice or proxy materials, we encourage you to sign up to receive all of your future proxy materials electronically, as described above under “Electronic Delivery.”
Electronic Proxy Voting
The above link will take you to a site that provides detailed instructions on how to vote your U.S. Bancorp shares over the Internet. You will be asked to enter your control number(s) to ensure the security of your vote. You will find your control number on the proxy card or voting instruction form received with your proxy statement. If you received your proxy materials electronically or if you received a notice of Internet availability of proxy materials, your control number is contained in the e-mail or on the notice of Internet availability that you received. Before you vote, you should carefully review the proxy statement and related materials.
