Voting is Easy–and Your Vote Matters!

To Support Your Company, Use the BLUE Proxy Card:

 

TO VOTE ONLINE

  • Locate the unique Control Number featured on your BLUE proxy card.
  • Access the website address shown on your BLUE proxy card.
  • Follow the simple instructions provided.

 

TO VOTE BY PHONE

  • Dial the telephone number shown on your BLUE proxy card
  • Follow the simple voice prompts.

 

TO VOTE BY MAIL

  • Simply sign, date and return your BLUE proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided

Please note that you may receive multiple mailings from both Ashland and Cruiser.  You may also receive some materials more than once if you own shares in different accounts.

  • Since you may hold shares in more than one account, it is important that you vote each and every BLUE proxy card you receive.

Remember, the Ashland board of directors does not endorse any of the Cruiser nominees and strongly urges you not to sign or return any White proxy card sent to you by Cruiser.

  • If you have previously voted using a White proxy card sent to you by Cruiser, you can revoke that proxy by using the enclosed BLUE proxy card to vote by Internet, by telephone or by signing, dating and returning the BLUE proxy card today.   Only your last-dated proxy will count!

 

If you have any questions or require any assistance with voting your shares,

please contact Ashland’s proxy solicitor:
