Mountain View, Calif. – March 25, 2008 – Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced the Internet availability of proxy materials for its 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s new Notice and Access rule. Google’s proxy materials can be found on its investor relations website at investor.google.com.
Pursuant to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s new Notice and Access rule, companies may now satisfy their proxy materials delivery requirements by delivering a "Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials" to stockholders, providing Internet access to the proxy materials, and providing a printed set of proxy materials by mail to any stockholder who requests them.
