Subject: Proxy Voting by Microsoft Shareholders
Every year, shareholders are given the opportunity to participate directly in the governance of Microsoft through the proxy voting process.
If you own Microsoft shares, I encourage you to vote your proxy and take an active role in the overall governance of our company.
This year, shareholders are asked to consider and vote on the following matters:
Over the next few days, you will receive your notice of proxy materials and proxy voting instructions either through an electronic link directly from our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer (AST), via email from MSFTProxyEnotice@amstock.com, or in the postal mail, depending on where your shares are held. In either case, you may vote electronically by following the instructions in the materials you receive.
If you do not receive proxy materials and believe that you should have, or if you have questions regarding Microsofts proxy voting, please email Microsoft Investor Relations at email@example.com.
