Internet Availability of Proxy Materials

Live Webcast of the IDEXX Laboratories Annual Meeting of Shareholders
Wednesday, May 12, 2021, 10:00 a.m. Eastern time

 

Dear Shareholder:

IDEXX is pleased to take advantage of the Securities and Exchange Commission rules that allow issuers to provide proxy materials to their shareholders on the Internet instead of mailing printed copies. Internet availability allows us to provide our shareholders with the information they need, while lowering the cost of the delivery of the materials and reducing the environmental impact of printing and mailing hard copies. If you have not signed up to receive your proxy materials electronically, you will receive a notice in your mail with your voting instructions.
