MONTREAL – BUSINESS – Bombardier (TSX: BBD.B) announced today that it will host its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (“Meeting”) in a virtual format due to the ongoing public health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Corporation previously announced in its 2020 Notice of Meeting that, subject to public health conditions and concerns, it would host a hybrid Meeting format, whereby registered shareholders and duly appointed proxy holders could attend and participate either in person or via a live webcast. However, given the continued risks associated with hosting gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has made the decisions to adopt a pure virtual format with no in-person participation.

Bombardier, therefore, welcomes all registered shareholders and duly appointed proxy holders who wish to participate in the online Meeting to do so by joining the live webcast available at https://web.lumiagm.com/122776078. As usual, only registered shareholders and duly appointed proxy holders will be allowed to vote and intervene during the Live Meeting. Unregistered shareholders, guests and media will be able to watch the online Meeting via the live webcast available at the same link.

Instructions to vote and participate in the online Meeting, including submitting questions to management and to the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bombardier, will be available on the Corporation’s website and on the online Meeting platform. Bombardier encourages shareholders to vote and submit their proxies prior to the Meeting.
