PAA Announces Virtual Annual Meeting

HOUSTON - Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE: PAA) announced today that, due to public health concerns related to COVID-19, it has changed the format of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Unitholders (the "Annual Meeting") from a physical in-person meeting to a virtual meeting format. The Annual Meeting will be held via live audio webcast on May 20, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. CDT. PAA expects future annual meetings to be held in person.

The record date for determining PAA unitholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting was March 23, 2020. PAA unitholders as of the record date will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person but will be able to vote by either submitting their proxy card prior to the meeting or by voting at the virtual Annual Meeting in the manner described below.

Whether or not a unitholder plans to attend the Annual Meeting by virtual means, PAA urges its unitholders to vote by submitting their proxy in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy statement dated April 15, 2020, copies of which were previously distributed to unitholders. New proxy cards are not being sent to unitholders and the proxy card included with the proxy statement previously sent to unitholders may continue to be used to vote each unitholder's units in connection with the Annual Meeting. If PAA unitholders have previously submitted a proxy using one of the methods described in the proxy statement and proxy card, their vote will be counted and they do not need to submit a new proxy or vote at the Annual Meeting, although PAA unitholders may change or revoke their vote by attending and voting at the virtual Annual Meeting or by one of the other methods described in the proxy statement.
