To the Stockholders of AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.:

The Company wants to assure its stockholders of its commitment to ensuring that the Annual Meeting provides stockholders with a meaningful opportunity to participate, including the ability to ask questions of the Company’s Board of Directors and management.  To support these efforts, the Company will:



Provide for Annual Meeting attendees to begin logging into the Annual Meeting at 7:30 am, Pacific Time on March 17, 2021, thirty minutes in advance of the meeting.


Permit participating stockholders to submit questions via live webcast during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions available on the meeting website during the Annual Meeting.  Questions relevant to meeting matters will be answered during the meeting, subject to time constraints.  


Post responses to questions relevant to meeting matters that are not answered during the Annual Meeting due to time constraints on the Company’s Investor Relations webpage.


Provide the ability for participating stockholders of record to vote or revoke their prior vote by following the instructions available on the meeting website during the Annual Meeting.  Shares for which a stockholder is the beneficial owner, but not the stockholder of record, also may be voted electronically during the annual meeting but only if the stockholder obtains a signed proxy from the record holder (stock brokerage, bank, or other nominee) giving the stockholder the right to vote the shares. 


Stockholders are reminded that they may access the virtual Annual Meeting at with password A2021 and will need the 15-digit control number included on the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, the proxy card or on the instructions that accompanied the proxy materials.
