11. Will I be able to ask questions and participate in the Annual Meeting?
We are aware of concerns that virtual meetings may diminish stockholder voices or reduce accountability and are taking steps to address these concerns. For example, our virtual meeting format enhances, rather than constrains, stockholder access, participation and communication because the online format allows stockholders to communicate with us during the Annual Meeting so they can ask questions to our Board, management and a representative from our independent registered public accounting firm.
We have reserved 20 minutes for stockholder questions at our Annual Meeting. We will answer stockholder questions as they come in, as time permits. We are committed to publicly answering each question received following the Annual Meeting, with the exception of any questions that are irrelevant to the purpose of the Annual Meeting or our business or that contain inappropriate or derogatory references. If we receive substantially similar questions, we will group such questions together and provide a single response to avoid repetition.
12. What if I have technical difficulties or trouble accessing the Annual Meeting?
We encourage you to access the Annual Meeting before it begins. Online check-in will start approximately fifteen minutes before the meeting on February 23, 2023. If you have difficulty accessing the meeting, please call the technical support number that will be posted on the virtual meeting login page at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ONEW2023. We will have technicians available to assist you.
13. You share an address with another stockholder. Why did you receive only one copy of the proxy materials, and how may you obtain an additional copy of the proxy materials?
The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries, such as brokers, to satisfy the delivery requirements for the proxy materials with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single set of the proxy materials addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as “householding,” is intended to provide extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings to the companies.
A number of brokers with account holders who are stockholders may be “householding” our proxy materials. A single set of proxy materials will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. If you have received notice from your broker that it will be “householding” communications to your address, “householding” will continue until you are notified otherwise, or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in “householding” and would prefer to receive a separate set of materials, please notify your broker or the Company at OneWater Marine Inc., 6275 Lanier Islands Parkway, Buford, Georgia 30518 or (678) 541-6300, in each case Attention: Chief Financial Officer, and the Company will promptly deliver such additional materials to you. Stockholders who have multiple accounts in their names or who share an address with other stockholders can request “householding” and authorize your broker to discontinue mailings of multiple annual reports and proxy statements by contacting your broker or the Company at OneWater Marine Inc., 6275 Lanier Islands Parkway, Buford, Georgia 30518 or (678) 541-6300, in each case Attention: Chief Financial Officer.
