CALGARY, ALBERTA – Whitecap Resources Inc. (“Whitecap”) (TSX: WCP) announces that its annual and special meeting of holders of common shares scheduled for Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. (Calgary time) at the Calgary Petroleum Club will be changed to a virtual meeting to be held at the same time and on the same date.
As the City of Calgary and the Province of Alberta have declared a state of public health emergency, and to support efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19, Whitecap has made the decision to change its in person annual and special meeting to a virtual format. We believe hosting a virtual meeting in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic is in the best interests of all stakeholders and the broader community. Shareholders will not be able to attend the annual and special meeting in person.
The virtual meeting will be conducted via live audio webcast at https://web.lumiagm.com/277088761 commencing at 9:00 a.m. (Calgary time) on April 22, 2020. Shareholders will have an opportunity to participate at the annual and special meeting online regardless of their geographic location. Below is some additional information on attending the virtual meeting. Further details will be provided on our website at www.wcap.ca.

Duly appointed proxy holders, including beneficial shareholders that have appointed themselves as proxy, or registered shareholders unable to locate their control number should send an email to Whitecap@odysseytrust.com to request their login credentials no later than 9:00 am (Calgary time) on April 21, 2020.
Non-registered (beneficial) shareholders who have not duly appointed themselves as proxyholders may still attend and ask questions at the virtual meeting without voting by clicking I am a guest during the login step.
