Dear Fellow AT&T Stockholder:

Due to the public health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and to support the health and well-being of our stockholders, employees and our community, the 2020 Annual Meeting will be conducted solely as a virtual meeting on the internet. There will not be an in-person meeting. The date and time of the meeting will remain the same: Friday, April 24, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. CDT.
