CSX Announces Internet Availability of Proxy Materials
Effort Will Save 25 Million Pages of Printing
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., (Mar. 24, 2009) CSX Corporation (NYSE:CSX) today announced that the proxy materials for its 2009 Annual Shareholders Meeting, including its proxy statement and 2008 Annual Report, are now available to shareholders via the Internet under the Securities and Exchange Commissions Notice and Access rules.
Last year CSX distributed nearly 190,000 annual reports. This year, the company is demonstrating its commitment to the environment and cost control by mailing copies by request only and posting the same information online. The company expects to reduce printing by more than 25 million pages.
Pursuant to the SECs Notice and Access rules, CSX is delivering a Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials (the Notice) to its shareholders of record instead of paper copies of its proxy materials. The Notice contains instructions regarding how to access and view the proxy materials over the Internet and how to vote electronically over the Internet and in other ways. Shareholders may obtain paper copies of the proxy materials by following the instructions provided on the Notice. In addition, this process provides shareholders the opportunity to join with CSX in continuing to enhance its role in protecting the environment.
CSXs 2009 Annual Shareholders Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 6, 2009 at 10:00 a.m., (EDT) at the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards, 110 South Eutaw Street, Baltimore, MD 21201-1608.
In his annual letter to shareholders, Michael Ward, chairman, president and CEO noted that the change in distribution of CSXs 2008 annual report represents a small but important example of our environmental leadership.
