CARLSBAD, Calif., May 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Callaway Golf Company (the "Company") (NYSE:ELY) announced today that its upcoming 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting") will now be held in a virtual-only meeting format. The Annual Meeting will be held at the originally scheduled date and time on May 12, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. (Pacific Time).
Due to the public health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, orders of relevant state and local governments, and to support the health and well-being of our shareholders, employees and their families, the Company will hold its Annual Meeting in a virtual-only meeting format. The timing and process for voting by proxy remains unchanged.
