(NYSE: CPF) (the "Company"), parent company of Central Pacific Bank, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a change in the location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders to a virtual-only shareholder meeting. The change for this year's annual shareholder meeting follows the issuance of a Stay at Home/Work from Home Order by Honolulu City and County Mayor Kirk Caldwell, and proclamation by Hawaii Governor David Ige prohibiting generally the public and private gathering of people in response to the COVID-19 virus.
Shareholders of record at the close of business on February 21, 2020, are invited to vote their shares and register for the meeting at proxyvote.com using the instructions provided with their proxy materials that were issued beginning on or about March 10.

All shareholders will need their control number to vote or ask questions; that number can be found on the proxy cards, voting instruction forms or other notices they received previously. Those without a control number may attend as guests of the meeting, but they will not have the option to vote their shares or ask questions during the virtual event.
Technical assistance will be available for those attending the meeting.
