If You Plan to Attend the Annual Meeting:

  • It is important that you let us know in advance by marking the appropriate box on your proxy card if you requested to receive printed proxy materials, or, if you vote by telephone or Internet, indicating your plans when prompted.
  • If you are a beneficial owner, like a vast majority of our stockholders, you may not vote your shares in person at the Annual Meeting unless you obtain a “legal proxy” from the broker, bank, trustee, or nominee that holds your shares giving you the right to vote the shares at the meeting. Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we recommend that you also submit your proxy or voting instructions as described in the proxy statement so that your vote will be counted if you later decide not to attend the meeting.
  • Please note that space limitations make it necessary for us to limit attendance to our stockholders. Only Google stockholders as of the close of business on March 17, 2014 (the "Record Date") are entitled to attend our Annual Meeting.

  • Each stockholder should be prepared to present:
    1. Valid photo identification, such as a driver's license or passport; and
    2. Stockholders holding their shares through a broker, bank, trustee or nominee will need to bring proof of beneficial ownership as of the Record Date, such as their most recent account statement reflecting their stock ownership prior to March 17, 2014, a copy of the voting instruction card provided by their broker, bank, trustee or nominee or similar evidence of ownership.
  • Cameras, recording devices, and other electronic devices, such as smart phones, will not be permitted at the meeting. Photography is prohibited at the meeting. Please also do not bring large bags or packages to the meeting.
