Equity Residential Announces Change to Virtual-Only Meeting for

its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders

CHICAGO – May 29, 2020 – Equity Residential (NYSE: EQR) today announced that, due to the public health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, it will hold its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) in a virtual meeting format only, via live audio webcast, and shareholders will not be able to attend in person. The previously announced date and time of the Annual Meeting, Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. Central Time, is unchanged.

As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting that were previously distributed, only shareholders of the Company’s common shares as of the close of business on March 31, 2020, the record date, will be entitled to participate in the Annual Meeting.

The Annual Meeting can be accessed by shareholders at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/EQR2020 beginning at 7:45 a.m. Central Time using the 16-digit control number on their proxy card, voting instruction form or notice regarding the availability of proxy materials. Authenticated shareholders will be able to vote and submit questions online during the meeting by following the instructions available on the Annual Meeting website.


All shareholders are encouraged to vote and submit their proxies in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. The proxy card, voting instruction form and notice regarding the availability of proxy materials, all of which were previously distributed, will not be updated to reflect the change from a physical meeting to a virtual-only meeting, but may continue to be used to vote shares in connection with the Annual Meeting. Shareholders who have already voted do not need to take any additional action.
