Where do I find my Control Number or Username?
For registered shareholders, your 15-digit Control Number is located at the bottom of page 1 of your form of proxy or, if you opted for electronic delivery from Computershare, at the top of the email notification of the Meeting. This Control Number can be used to vote in advance of the Meeting or directly at the Meeting.
For non-registered (beneficial) shareholders, your 16-digit Control Number is located near the middle of page 1 of your voting instruction form or, if you opted for electronic delivery, at the top of the email notification of the Meeting. This number can only be used to vote by proxy in advance of the Meeting. To vote directly at the meeting, you must duly appoint yourself as a proxyholder and register with Computershare.
If you are a duly appointed proxyholder and have registered as a proxyholder with Computershare, you will receive a username from Computershare by email once the proxy deposit deadline has passed. To become a duly appointed proxyholder, you must be appointed as a proxyholder by a registered or beneficial shareholder in accordance with the instructions in their form of proxy or voting instruction form, as applicable, and that shareholder must also register your appointment with Computershare by visiting www.computershare.com/altagas by 1:00 p.m. (MDT) on April 28, 2021.
I have signed in, but do not see the presentation. How do I access?
Once signed in you will see the information screen. When the meeting begins, press the “broadcast” icon to watch the webcast.
How do I vote my common shares at the Meeting?
Once you have logged in to the meeting, you are ready to vote. When the voting has opened, the polling icon will appear on the navigation bar at the top of your screen. The resolutions and voting choices will then be displayed. Please ensure you remain connected to the internet during voting. To vote, simply click on “For” or “Withhold” or “Against”, as applicable. After you vote, a message confirming “vote received” will appear. Your vote can be changed by simply clicking the other option. If you wish to cancel your vote, please press “Cancel”.
If you have previously voted by proxy, your prior proxy direction will be revoked if you click one of the voting options during the meeting.
How do I vote all my shares at the Meeting if I hold them through multiple accounts?
If you beneficially own shares through multiple accounts and want to vote all such shares at the meeting, please ensure that when you appoint a proxyholder (including yourself), the name of the proxyholder is printed identically on each. When you complete the second step of registering with Computershare, please use the same email address for each. That way Computershare can try to combine your voting shares and provide you with a single username, representing all your shares. Alternatively, you can vote certain of these shares in advance by proxy and sign in through a single account.
If you are a registered shareholder with multiple accounts, Computershare recommends voting by proxy. To ask questions at the meeting, sign in through a single account. If you wish to vote all your accounts at the meeting, you may appoint the same proxyholder for each (appoint using the exact appointee name for all accounts) and use the same email address for each when you complete the second step of registering with Computershare. Alternatively, you can log into the meeting multiple times, and a new window will open for each log in. If you do this, remember to vote in each window to ensure all shares are voted.
What if I have questions before voting?

How do I ask questions?
Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders may ask questions by selecting the messaging icon on their screen. Type your question within the chat box at the bottom of the messaging screen. Once you are happy with your message, click the send button. We encourage you to submit your questions early in the meeting so we can ensure that we answer as many questions as practicable during the meeting.
What happens after I submit my question?
Questions sent via the online platform will be moderated before being sent to the Chair. Only questions relating to the motions will be answered during the formal proceedings. In order to deal with all questions in a timely fashion, questions of a similar nature will be answered once, and duplicative questions will not receive a response.
If we are unable to address your question during the meeting, an AltaGas representative will reach out to you following the meeting provided you leave your contact details.
