CKX LANDS ANNOUNCES INTERNET ACCESS TO ANNUAL MEETING PROXY MATERIALS DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC
LAKE CHARLES, La. (April 9, 2020) - CKX Lands, Inc. (NYSE American: CKX) today announced that the third-party
facility that prints and mails to the Company's shareholders its annual meeting proxy materials has been forced
to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Company will not be able to mail a full set of annual
meeting materials to all of its shareholders for its annual meeting of shareholders to be held on May 7, 2020.
Instead, for certain shareholders, the Company will rely on rules that allow it to mail a notice to shareholders
giving the internet address where shareholders may access the annual meeting materials on-line. The Company
began mailing this notice today.
The Company is taking this action under a statement of the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission
issued on April 7, 2020 that provides guidance to issuers, shareholders, and other market participants
affected by COVID-19 with meeting their obligations under the federal proxy rules.
The CKX Lands, Inc. annual meeting of shareholders will be held on Thursday, May 7, 2020 at One Lakeside
Plaza, 4th Floor, 127 W. Broad Street, Lake Charles, Louisiana 70601, at 10:00 a.m., central time. Shareholders
may access the annual meeting proxy and proxy statement and the Company's 2019 annual report to shareholders at:
Shareholders of record will also be able to complete on-line and electronically sign a proxy to vote their
shares by visiting that site and entering their unique control number that is printed on the notice they
will receive in the mail. Shareholders holding their shares through a broker or bank will receive voting
instructions from their broker or bank.
Please note that the number of persons admitted entry to the annual meeting may be limited under any local,
state or federal government restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic that are in effect on the meeting
date. So that their votes will be counted, shareholders are urged to complete, sign, date and submit a proxy
rather than depending on attending the meeting and voting in person.
