VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armada Hoffler Properties, Inc. (NYSE: AHH) today announced that its Board of Directors has reaffirmed the Company’s commitment to leadership in corporate governance practices by adopting an amendment to the Company’s bylaws to implement a “proxy access” provision.

With the adoption of this bylaw amendment, a stockholder, or group of up to 20 stockholders, owning at least 3% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock continuously for at least three years, will be able to nominate and include in the Company’s proxy materials eligible director nominees up to the greater of (i) 20% of the number of directors up for election at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders or (ii) two director nominees, subject to the additional requirements specified in the Company’s bylaws. Proxy access rights will first be available to stockholders in connection with the Company’s 2022 annual meeting.
Louis Haddad, President & CEO noted, “Our Board of Directors regularly reviews our corporate governance policies and believes this change is consistent with our objective of maintaining best-in-class governance and delivering value to our stockholders.”
