9:00 a.m. Pacific Time
You are cordially invited to attend our 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which will be held at 9:00 a.m. (Pacific time) on Wednesday, September 23, 2009, at Symantec Corporations offices located at 350 Ellis Street, Mountain View, California 94043. For your convenience, we are pleased to offer a live and re-playable webcast of the Annual Meeting at www.symantec.com/invest.
We are holding the Annual Meeting for the following purposes, which are more fully described in the proxy statement:
1. To elect the ten nominees named in the proxy statement to Symantecs Board of Directors, each to hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor is elected and qualified or until his or her earlier resignation or removal;
2. To ratify the selection of KPMG LLP as Symantecs independent registered public accounting firm for the 2010 fiscal year;
3. To consider and vote upon one stockholder proposal, if properly presented at the meeting; and
4. To transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof.
Only stockholders of record as of the close of business on July 27, 2009 are entitled to notice and to vote at the Annual Meeting or any postponement or adjournment thereof. A list of stockholders entitled to vote will be available for inspection at our offices for ten days prior to the Annual Meeting. If you would like to view this stockholder list, please contact Investor Relations at (408) 517-8324.
We are pleased to continue our practice of furnishing proxy materials over the Internet. We believe doing so allows us to provide our stockholders with the information they need, while lowering the costs of the delivery of the materials and reducing the environmental impact of printing and mailing hard copies. Stockholders who continue to receive hard copies of proxy materials may help us to reduce costs further by opting to receive future proxy materials by e-mail.
Each share of stock that you own represents one vote, and your vote as a stockholder of Symantec is very important. For questions regarding your stock ownership, you may contact Investor Relations at (408) 517-8324 or, if you are a registered holder, our transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services, by email through their website at www.computershare.com/contactus or by phone at (877) 282-1168 (within the U.S. and Canada) or (781) 575-2879 (outside the U.S. and Canada).
