RALEIGH, N.C. — First Citizens BancShares, Inc.

As previously announced, the meeting will commence at 9:00 a.m. (EDT) on April 28.

Each record holder of shares, or beneficial holder of shares held by a bank, broker or other nominee, as of the February 28, 2020, meeting record date may access the meeting online by going to and following the instructions on the website to enter their 16-digit Control Number printed on the proxy card or voting instruction form they received with their proxy statement.

Shareholders will not be able to physically attend the meeting.

The proxy card and voting instruction forms previously distributed to shareholders will not be revised to reflect the change in location and may continue to be used to vote shares or give voting instructions. Shareholders who previously have returned their proxy cards or voting instruction forms, or voted their shares by telephone or Internet, need not do that again.
