Solicitation of Proxies
WebMD will pay the expenses of soliciting proxies from our stockholders to be voted at the Annual Meeting and the cost of preparing and mailing this proxy statement to our stockholders. Following the original mailing of this proxy statement and other soliciting materials, WebMD and its agents also may solicit proxies by mail, telephone, facsimile or in person. In addition, proxies may be solicited from WebMD stockholders by WebMDs directors, officers and employees in person or by telephone, facsimile or other means of communication. These officers, directors and employees will not be additionally compensated but may be
reimbursed for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the solicitation. Following the original mailing of this proxy statement and other soliciting materials, WebMD will request brokers, custodians, nominees and other record holders of WebMDs Class A Common Stock to forward copies of this proxy statement and other soliciting materials to persons for whom they hold shares of WebMD Class A Common Stock and to request authority for the exercise of proxies. In these cases, WebMD will, upon the request of the record holders, reimburse these holders for their reasonable expenses. WebMD has retained Innisfree M&A Incorporated, a proxy solicitation firm, for assistance in connection with the solicitation of proxies for the Annual Meeting. Any customary fees of Innisfree M&A Incorporated plus reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses will be paid by WebMD.
