To access the Annual Meeting via the webcast, you must obtain a virtual meeting access (“VMA”) control number as described in the proxy statement no later than 5:00 p.m., EDT, on May 10, 2021. The VMA control number is a 16-digit number that will provide you access to the Annual Meeting. It does NOT replace the 15-digit Computershare control number that allows you to vote your shares. Due to the ongoing impact of the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, we plan to hold the Annual Meeting by means of remote communications only (i.e. a virtual-only annual meeting). As of the date of this mailing, a state disaster emergency has been declared relating to COVID-19 in the State of New York, and the requirement under New York law that annual meetings be noticed and held at a physical location has been temporarily suspended. The declaration of a state disaster emergency and the related suspension are renewed on a monthly basis. In the event that the state disaster emergency and suspension are lifted prior to the date fixed for the Annual Meeting and it is not, therefore, legally permissible for us to hold a completely virtual annual meeting under New York law, we may also hold the Annual Meeting in person. We will announce the location of the in-person component of the meeting by press release and posting on our proxy website (www.conedison.com/shareholders), as well as the filing of additional proxy materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission. If the Annual Meeting is also held in person, you may use this document, along with proper form of identification, to attend the Annual Meeting.
