On November 17, 2020, Jennifer L. Hamann, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Union Pacific Corporation (the Company) is participating in the 2020 Stephens Research Investment Conference. Ms. Hamann’s presentation includes updates on the Company’s quarter-to-date volume, revenue, and operational performance. She also is addressing the impact of Union Pacific Railroad Company’s announcement of a bonus that will be provided in December 2020 to recognize its agreement professionals. Union Pacific Railroad Company (the Railroad) is the principal operating subsidiary of the Company. The Railroad will pay approximately 31,000 employees a one-time $1,000 bonus, adding approximately $37 million to the Company’s fourth quarter compensation and benefits expense line.

The full presentation is available on the Company’s website www.up.com under Investors; Earnings Release and Management Presentations; Analysts Conferences.

This Form 8-K and the presentation referred to herein contain forward-looking statements as defined by the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements also generally include, without limitation, information or statements regarding: projections, predictions, expectations, estimates or forecasts as to the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ business, financial, and operational results, and future economic performance; and management’s beliefs, expectations, goals, and objectives and other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts.



Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times that, or by which, such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking information, including expectations regarding operational and financial improvements and the Company’s future performance or results are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in the statement. Important factors, including risk factors, could affect the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ future results and could cause those results or other outcomes to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Information regarding risk factors and other cautionary information are available in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2019, which was filed with the SEC on February 7, 2020. The Company updates information regarding risk factors if circumstances require such updates in its periodic reports on Form 10-Q and its subsequent Annual Reports on Form 10-K (or such other reports that may be filed with the SEC).



Forward-looking statements speak only as of, and are based only upon information available on, the date the statements were made. The Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking information to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking information. If the Company does update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that the Company will make additional updates with respect thereto or with respect to other forward-looking statements. References to our website are provided for convenience and, therefore, information on or available through the website is not, and should not be deemed to be, incorporated by reference herein.
