Today AVANGRID, Inc. (NYSE:AGR) announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.44 per share on its Common Stock. This dividend is payable April 3, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 1, 2023.
AVANGRID also announced that the date of its 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be Tuesday, June 13, 2023. Because the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be held more than 30 days prior to the anniversary date of the previous annual meeting of shareholder, the deadlines set forth in AVANGRID's definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on June 2, 2022 for shareholder proposals for consideration at the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders no longer apply.
The new deadline is the close of business on April 14, 2023 (which AVANGRID has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and distribute its proxy materials prior to the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders) for proposals to be considered for inclusion in this year’s proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act.
Shareholders who intend to present proposals for action at the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders must ensure that such proposals are received by the Corporation’s Secretary at Avangrid, Inc., 180 Marsh Hill Road, Orange, Connecticut 06477, on or before the close of business on April 14, 2023. In addition to complying with this deadline, shareholder proposals must comply with all applicable SEC rules, including Rule 14a-8, and the requirements set forth in AVANGRID’s Amended and Restated Bylaws and applicable law.
