You may submit proposals for consideration at a stockholder meeting. For a stockholder proposal to be considered for inclusion in HPE's proxy statement for the annual meeting, the Corporate Secretary must receive the written proposal at our principal executive offices no later than the deadlines noted in the annual proxy statement.
