The US Securities and Exchange Commission has amended its proxy rules to allow companies to furnish proxy materials to shareholders through a 'notice and access' model using the Internet.

A company choosing to follow the model must post its proxy materials on an Internet website and send a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials to shareholders at least 40 days before the meeting date. A proxy card may not accompany the Notice. However, a company may send a paper proxy card accompanied by another copy of the Notice 10 days or more after sending the initial the Notice.
