ANNUAL MEETING

The Annual Meeting of Stockholders of CatchMark Timber Trust, Inc. will be held on June 24, 2020, at 10:00 a.m., Eastern Time, at the Westin Atlanta Perimeter North, 7 Concourse Parkway, Atlanta, Georgia 30328. Click here for directions.

As part of our precautions regarding COVID-19, we are planning for the possibility that stockholder attendance may not be permitted by local, state or federal law. If stockholder attendance is not permitted or if we determine that it is not in the best interest of our employees, stockholders and community to permit stockholder attendance, we will arrange for stockholders to have access to the meeting virtually via live webcast and conference call. If we take this step, we will announce the decision to do so by June 14, 2020, via a press release and post details on our website (www.catchmark.com) that will also be filed with the SEC as proxy material. As always, we encourage you to vote your shares prior to the Annual Meeting.

The following matters will be considered at the meeting:

  1. To elect six director nominees named in this proxy statement to serve until the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualify.
  2. Approval, on an advisory basis, of the compensation of CatchMark’s named executive officers.
  3. Approval, on an advisory basis, upon the frequency of the advisory vote to approve the compensation of CatchMark’s named executive officers.
  4. Ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as CatchMark’s independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020.
  5. Transacting any other business that may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof.

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote “FOR” each director nominee in Proposal No. 1, “FOR” Proposal No. 2, for “1 YEAR” in Proposal No. 3 and “FOR” Proposal No. 4.

Please refer to the proxy materials to the right for further details on the proposals.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT NOTICE AND ACCESS

Why am I receiving a Notice of Internet Availability instead of a proxy card and proxy statement?
CatchMark has elected to utilize a distribution model authorized by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in 2007. This model, known as Notice and Access, allows public companies to send you a notice instead of a full set of printed proxy materials. As a stockholder, you can select the means by which you access these proxy materials. You can view the materials electronically via the Internet, or request a full set of printed materials for this stockholder meeting and all future stockholder meetings, or you can make that choice on a case-by-case basis.

If I request printed proxy materials, how long will it take for me to receive them?
The SEC rule requires that the proxy materials be sent to you via first-class mail within three business days of receipt of your request.
