Employee shareholders encouraged to vote

Employees who were PPG shareholders on February 17, 2023 should receive a notice (by mail or e-mail) providing detailed voting instructions and the manner for accessing the proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting.

As indicated in the proxy materials, PPG’s Board of Directors recommends that shareholders vote as follows:

Proposal 1: FOR the election of five directors (Stephen F. Angel, Hugh Grant, Melanie L. Healey, Timothy M. Knavish and Guillermo Novo) to serve in a class whose term expires in 2025;
Proposal 2: FOR the approval of the compensation of PPG’s named executive officers on an advisory basis;
Proposal 3: EVERY YEAR on the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation on an advisory basis;
Proposal 4: FOR the ratification of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as PPG’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2023; and
Proposal 5: AGAINST a shareholder proposal to adopt a policy requiring an independent board chair, if properly presented.

“Shareholders have a valuable opportunity to vote on these important proposals,” said Joe Gette, vice president, deputy general counsel and secretary. “We encourage all shareholders to read the proxy materials and to exercise their right to vote.”

Please submit your vote as soon as possible in advance of PPG’s 2023 Annual Meeting, which will be held on April 20.

This year’s Annual Meeting will be held in a virtual format through a live webcast at https://www.cesonlineservices.com/ppg23_vm.
